PAGE 12A HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, FEBRUARY 14, 2014 Countering terrorism00the right approach and solul:ions By Alan Kornman Special to Heritage On a chilly Thursday night while most of Orlando resi- dents were at home keeping warm, Wallace Bruschweiler was connecting the dots on terrorist cell operations from the 1970s to today. Seventy people packed Doc's Grill on Orange Avenue to hear from a man who was fighting terror- ism long before America's col- lective consciousness knew there was a problem. Bruschweiler, vice presi- dent of Associates of Former Intelligence Officers Fla. Suncoast Chapter, spoke on behalf of Act For America, an organization that provides Americans with a means to be a collective voice for the democratic values of Western civilization, and against the threat of radical Islam. He spent years in the field dis- rupting the terroristactivities of the Baader-Meinhof Group, Red Brigades, Action Directe, IRA, and ETA. These groups were responsible for over 296 bomb attacks, arson counter- feiting, murder, kidnapping, kneecapping, assassinations, to further their left-wing anti-colonialist / Communist politics. Terrorism is defined as the systematic use of violence to achieve a political objective. Bruschweiler says under- standing the definition is something the majority of the American people get. It is the business model the terrorists use that is the important ele- ment in understanding this issue behind the headlines. The mainstream press and academia have done a great disservice to the American people by focusing on the gruesome effects of terrorist operations rather than the solutions needed to combat terrorism. The first clue in unraveling this mystery of terrorism is information Bruschweiler gathered while conduct- ing counter terrorist opera- tions against many terrorist groups. For example, to con- fuse law enforcement the Red Brigades used the names of approximately 500 terrorist groups to appear bigger and more numerous than they were. The effect of this tactic resulted in law enforcement spending time and resources going after these empty terrorist shells rather than cutting off the head of the ter- rorist snake. Islamic terrorists of today are using this same methodology to confuse the American people. Bruschweiler's views on numerous topics Islamic expansionism: "My message is very clear, we have to stop Islamic expansionism and stop importing trouble." This can be accomplished by a complete Congressional over- haul of the Refugee Resettle- ment Act and slowing down Muslim immigration from terrorist supporting coun- tries until we can properly vet the lives of these political refugees. American's today must understand that our South- ern borders are weak and being exploited by Mus- lim BrotherhoOd terror- ists. Feature-wise Mexicans and South Americans are similar to Arabs. These Arab operatives in Mexico, Venezuela, and the South American tri-border area are trained how to hide their true identity from American law enforcement if they are captured crossing through our porous southern bor- ders and blending into the American population. This is why we have to stop this massive undocumented im- migration into the United States because it is now a top National Security issue. Nuclear weapons in Iran: President Obama's current policies regarding a nuclear Iran are eerily reminiscent of Chamberlain negotiating 'peace in our time' with the Nazis. "I believe our cur- rent policy is dangerous and misguided," Bruschweiler affirmed.

He got fed up with what was going on in his kingdom and he gave carte blanche to his army and they killed 15,000 Palestin- ian Arabs with allegiance to Arafat. The rest fled, many of the high-ranking Palestinian officers crossed into Israel asking for protection, the rest went to Lebanon via the Chouf area. The Druze said they wanted $100 for each Palestin- ian crossing into Lebanon and earned a lot of money. That is how Arafat escaped and established himself in Beirut. Benghazi: "All I will say about Benghazi is that all the lies spit out about what hap- pened there was a shame. The Naval Air Station in Sigonella, Italy is only 90 minutes from Benghazi and I will leave it there for you to make your own conclusions." "We played the wrong card in Egypt by insisting on hav- ing a fraudulent election and putting Morsi into that place. Morsi as far as I'm concerned is The Muslim Brotherhood and our military experts know The Brotherhood had their hand in Benghazi. Ambas- sador Stephens was there on a very specific mission. That mission was to arrange with the Turkish ambassador to Libya, a shipment of weapons to Syria. "The Israelis have a very dynamic and elastic intelli- gence apparatus and they take a pro active approach to any scenario. For each incident they know what to do and execute it. With Benghazi, it's been over a year and nothing has happened. The result is the terrorists do not fear the Americans, which only leads to more terrorism. Terrorist threats: This is the one thing I insist that people have to understand. Do not disregard messages issued by terrorists, what they write or say in videos they will definitely try to execute. Do not say they are fanatics, the fact they are fanatics is beside the point. NSA privacy invasion: I personally have no problem with having all my calls and emails checked, I have noth- ing to hide. The thing is with this collection ofmega data by the NSA is that its humanly impossible to connect the hundreds of millions of dots. NSA uses keywords but our government has to have the human intelligence at the ground level to be effective. The Muslim Brotherhood:A big mistake America did was for Jimmy Carter to send Kho- meini back to Tehran in 1979. We thought he was a decent and religious man and got our- selves into big trouble. There are clear connections between The Muslim Brotherhood and this pivotal event in American foreign policy history. There is clear intelligence that Ahma- dinejad was the mastermind behind the American hostage crisis. And the assassination of Anwar Sadat was coordinated and executed by The Muslim Brotherhood. Here is a case study on how the Russians successfully dealt with the Shiite Muslim Amal Movement who later morphed into Hezbollah in Beirut. In 1985, TheAmal ter- rorists kidnapped four Soviet diplomats, killing one in the process. Sheikh Fadlallah was the mastermind behind the kidnapping. The Soviets sent in the Alpha Group who had lo- cal hoodlums kidnap a distant cousin of Sheikh Fadlallah and told him that if you do not release our diplomats we will send your cousin back to you piece by piece. Soon there- after, the Soviet diplomats were released and Fadlailah's cousin was returned minus fingers and hands. From that day forward, terrorists never kidnapped another Soviet/ Russian diplomat for fear of a swift retribution. The point of this story is to illustrate that successful counter ter- rorism measures, at times, must resort to using the same brutality of the terror- ists to send a clear message that terrorist operations will result in dire consequences. This Alpha Group is currently operating in the area of the Sochi Olympics. A name by any other name: Please from now on when you hear whatever names of vari- ous terrorist organizations, forget the name - its The Muslim Brotherhood. People tell me that not all Muslims are bad and in that I agree. In my travels throughout Europe, Middle East, and North Africa as a tourist or in some other capacity, I have befriended selected Muslims and maintain those friendships today. However, one cannot escape the fact that the majority of terrorist events around the world are committed by the followers of Islam to achieve their politi- cal ends. My Muslim friends taught me the ultimate goal of these terrorist events are to further the Islamic expan- sion and Caliphate around the world. Visualize a pyramid with the top being the Islamic Expansion/Caliphate. Below that is the Muslim Brother- hood who are the soldiers of the Islamic Expansion. If Firemen raise the American flag at the site of the World Trade Centers in September 2011. "On 9111 Bin Laden out- smarted us and got what he really wanted. It wasn't only to terrorize the West, but to get the U.S. out of the Middle East," says Wallace Bruschweiler. you remember correctly The Muslim Brotherhood was cre- ated in Egypt by AI-Banna, a Sunni, in 1928. Today there is no difference between the Sunni and Shiites in that they join forces in furthering the common goal of Islamic Ex- pansionism and the Caliphate. They don't care how and when, they have years, decades, and millenniato get there. Sunni's fighting Shiites, Shiites fight- ing Sunni's forget it, they are all under the name of The Muslim Brotherhoodmthat is the threat we have. About six Muslim Broth- erhood operatives have ties to The White House. United States Federal court docu- ments dating back to 1991 show The Muslim Brother- hood has at least 29 named franchises operating freely in the United States. The Muslim Student Association, Islamic Society of North America, Muslim Arab Youth Associa- tion, Islamic Circle of North America to name a few. Since 1991 the two most well know Muslim Brotherhood front groups are The Council On American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). All the names of these groups are irrelevant because they are merely franchises of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood uses all these front groups to confuse the issues. Western culture vs. Mid- eastern culture: To under- stand the Middle East one must understand tribalism. In America we have 50 separate States under One America. It is the opposite in the Middle East. It is hundreds if not thousands of Hatfield and McCoy family tribes fighting for power and resources one day and joining forces the next to fight any perceived enemy of Islam. For example, Iraq is made up of 72 tribes.A tribe is alarge family and they rule by force or agreement with another tribe. Then we come in as a very clever white man and we will redraw your borders. It is insane these borders, you have families that were uprooted who can't travel freely from one border to another. In the minds of many Middle Eastern tribes they don't recognize the borders in their hearts and deep down they hate us Infidel Americans and Euro- peans for it. What's the solution? People always ask me for the solutions to these world problems. Earlier, I said you can help to get the right people elected to office. Today's academia is form- ing our next generation and they are mostly leftists. The other problem is the family. This is where it starts and all of us should look at this and try to change things for the positive, beginning at your dinner table. Sit down with your family and talk about matters important to us and them. These problems of all this terrorism, bombings, blood- shed, Islamic expansionism, Communist threats, North Korea, a nuclear Iran are prob- lems that will be left for our children and grandchildren to deal with in one form or another. Talking to your children about matters that are facing the family both good and bad is the first step. From these discussions your children will begin to understand the eco- nomics and hardships of keep- ing a family together, putting food on the table, paying the mortgage, and keeping gas in the car. And by your example your kids will love and respect you more and as they see you concerned about Islamic ter- rorism and a nuclear Iran they toowill become interested and be a part of the solution not a part of the problem. !!i!iii  iiii.!,.

It is important because of its location, its oil, and its asserted leadership of Islam. In recent months it has been on several sides of different controversies. It has worked along with Israel (in concert with Israel?) againstAmerican and European concessions to Iran; it has financed the enemies of Iran who are also fighting the Assad regime in Syria, and most likely fighting the allies of Assad in Lebanon. Yet some of these fighters are the most extreme of Islamic jihadists who are not only anti-Shiite but anti-Israel and anti-western. Remember the role of Saudis in 9-11? It's back again. This snapshot of chaos will not last forever, but no one knows what comes next. One hears several times each day that Israel must do more to persuade the world of its justice. The reality is that Israel is low priority for most people of the world. And those who are concerned about it--either its sharp critics or warm sup- porters--tend not to change their minds. If you have been convinced since 1948 or 1967 that Israel ought to do more to bring about peace with its neigh- bors, chances are you read all of the above to say that this is the golden moment. The chance for peace can only get worse. If you are among those who have been convinced since 1948 or 1967 that Israel must look after itself, with great suspicion about Arab and Muslim intentions, chances are that you read all of the above as saying that this is another moment not to risk concessions that could weaken Israel is the face of regional chaos, perhaps now more heightened than at any time in the recent past.
