An “expose” on how Shari’ah is threatening America is now out from The Center for Security Policy, a neocon think tank founded by in 1988 by one of Reagan’s Defense team, Frank Gaffney, Jr. Gaffney’s hard to take seriously, particularly when he pens stuff like, “Will Obama Enforce Sharia Blasphemy Laws,” (CSP site, Sept. 13) but the Christian Broadcasting Network’s happy to promote the new report. Written by Team B II, explained below in the introduction, the report targets Islam and Sharia as the new great threat to American freedom.
This study is the result of months of analysis, discussion and drafting by a group of top security policy experts concerned with the preeminent totalitarian threat of our time: the legal-political-military doctrine known within Islam as “shariah.” It is designed to provide a comprehensive and articulate “second opinion” on the official characterizations and assessments of this threat as put forth by the United States government.
The authors, under the sponsorship of the Center for Security Policy, have modeled this work on an earlier “exercise in competitive analysis” which came to be known as the “Team B” Report. That 1976 document challenged the then-prevailing official U.S. government intelligence estimates of the intentions and offensive capabilities of the Soviet Union and the policy known as “détente” that such estimates ostensibly justified.
As with the original Team B analysis, however, this study challenges the assumptions underpinning the official line in the conflict with today’s totalitarian threat, which is currently euphemistically described as “violent extremism,” and the policies of co-existence, accommodation and submission that are rooted in those assumptions.
