What would have happened if, during the Cold War, Soviet intelligence had been responsible for training Americans charged with countering communist aggression?

It should, therefore, be profoundly alarming that today the Obama administration is entrusting to agents of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) the responsibility for approving who and what is used in “countering violent extremism” training for our military, law enforcement and intelligence personnel.

The use of the term “countering violent extremism” (CVE) is, of course, the first clue that the enemy is inside the wire. That euphemism is the term Team Obama allows to be employed in lieu of phrases that actually describe the nature of the principal enemy we face at the moment: Muslims who engage in holy war – jihad – to compel the rest of us to submit to the totalitarian, supremacist political-military-legal doctrine they call Shariah.

“Countering violent extremism” is problematic for reasons beyond its lack of clarity about the threat. It also explicitly excludes a facet of the menace posed by Shariah that is at least as dangerous to an open, tolerant, liberal democracy as the violent sort of jihad: the stealthy insinuation of this doctrine in ways that are nonviolent or, more accurately, pre-violent.

The Muslim Brotherhood specializes in this sort of covert warfare, which it has dubbed “civilization jihad.” Its skills were honed during decades of operations under a succession of hostile Egyptian governments. Now that the Brothers have achieved – with no little help from President Obama – the overthrow of the last of these under Hosni Mubarak, their true colors are becoming evident.
