The Jihadist takeover of American Universities by Radicalized Islamist

The Legacy of 9/11: A Catalyst for Extremist Ideologies

On the fateful day of September 11, 2001, the world witnessed a cataclysmic event that shook the very foundations of America’s spirit. Extremist factions of Al-Qaeda, driven by a twisted ideology of hatred and violence, executed a diabolical plan. They hijacked four innocent commercial airplanes, turning them into deadly missiles aimed at the heart of the United States.In a meticulously coordinated attack, two of these planes tore through the majestic towers of the World Trade Center, once symbols of prosperity and progress, reducing them to rubble and ash. The sheer horror and devastation of that moment sent shockwaves across the globe, claiming the lives of 2977 unsuspecting souls and forever altering the course of history.But the terror did not end there. A third plane, a weapon of mass destruction in the sky, crashed into the fortified walls of the Pentagon, the very symbol of America’s military might. And a fourth plane, thwarted in its sinister mission by brave souls aboard, met its fiery end in an empty field, a stark reminder of the heroism amidst chaos.

This was not just an attack on buildings; it was an assault on the very essence of freedom and democracy. It exposed the monstrous face of political Islam, a perverted ideology seeking to sow seeds of fear and division. The concept of “Jihad” was distorted into a tool of subjugation and domination, aimed at reshaping America’s landscape through centuries-old tactics of infiltration and sabotage.The aftermath of 9/11 unleashed a torrent of emotions — grief, anger, and a resolve to stand united against such heinous acts. It ignited debates on national security, immigration, and the delicate balance between liberty and safety. The scars of that day run deep, etched into the collective memory of a nation that vowed to never forget and to rise stronger from the ashes of tragedy.

Campus Turmoil: Protests and Sympathies Amidst the Israel-Gaza Conflict

Fast forward in 2024, Protest encampments have sprung up on approximately 30 campuses across the United States in response to the Israel-Gaza conflict. Tensions escalated at some locations when law enforcement intervened to disperse protesters. These students are calling for academic institutions to cease business dealings with Israel or any entities linked to the Israeli military’s actions in Gaza. The arrest of hundreds of pro-Palestinian demonstrators on various campuses has further heightened tensions, highlighting the ongoing discord between student activists and university authorities. Additionally, there are reports of pro-Hamas sympathizers at UCLA employing metal gates and wristbands to screen and admit individuals who advocate violence against Jews and the destruction of Israel. Protestors are displaying slogans of hatred towards Israel and Jews, as well as animosity towards America. They are tearing down American flags and chanting phrases like “Death to Jews” and “Death to America.”

Jihadist Influence on American Soil: Extent and Implications

The siege of campus across America by pro-Hamas sympathizers points out that the tentacles of Jihadists have spread across the country. The scale of the protest points out the potential involvement of radicalised extremist forces operating in the country. According to a 2004 article by The Washington Post, U.S. Muslim Brotherhood supporters “make up the U.S. Islamic community’s most organized force” by running hundreds of mosques and business ventures, promoting activities, and setting up American Islamic organizations to defend and promote radicalized Jehadi Islam. The group also set up Islamic Society of North America, the American Muslim Council, the Muslim American Society and the International Institute to amplify the thought process.

The Islamic Society of North America, was an advisor to President Obama on Middle East affairs and persuaded the administration in signing a nuclear accord with Iran. Meanwhile, the Muslim Student Association, with chapters across America, is supporting Pro-Palestine supporters who are screaming “Death to Jews.” Additionally, the North American Islamic Trust holds ownership of 90% of mosques in the region. Organizations like the Council for American Islamic Relations, formerly known as the Islamic Association of Palestine, are also involved. The group ensured that anyone opposing the hate for Jews and anti-Israel views proposed by these front organizations was classified as having Islamaphobia.

Financial Infiltration: Arab Donations and Educational Values

Over the past five years, authoritarian Middle Eastern nations have donated more than $5 billion to American universities. According to the report from AICE, the top five recipients of Arab donations were Cornell, Georgetown, Carnegie Mellon, Texas A&M, and Northwestern. Furthermore, prestigious Ivy League institutions like Cornell and Harvard have collectively received over $8 billion in the last 35 years from Arab countries. Despite these substantial donations, there’s a perception that some of these universities aren’t fully implementing an American-style teaching system but instead a hybrid with Arabic influences under an American guise. This stereotype raises questions about the educational approaches and values being promoted within these institutions. There are concerns about money flowing in from the Middle East and appointments are made for professors with anti-Israel views.

Political Maneuvering: Ultra-Leftist Influence and Policy Debates

Protesters in Gaza and Palestine received overseas support, particularly when Congresswoman Ilhan Omar showed solidarity by visiting a Columbia University encampment. Additionally, the Biden administration is considering measures to assist Palestinians in the U.S. who wish to reunite with family from conflict-affected areas. Critics argue that this support reflects an ultra-leftist influence over American policy. Both radicalized leftists and jihadists have strategically employed master frames like anti-globalization/anti-capitalism and anti-colonialism/anti-imperialism to gain diverse support. This strategy has led to the formation of a Red-Green alliance, posing a complex challenge for U.S. policymakers.

The Red-Green Alliance: A Complex Challenge for U.S. Governance

The presence of radicalized ideologies on American campuses presents challenges for lawmakers. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump commended law enforcement’s actions during raids. Uncontrolled migration contributes to an immigration crisis and threatens law and order, potentially destabilizing societal cohesion. Law enforcement agencies must monitor overseas funding for universities and curb radical jihadist groups to prevent a potential Islamist takeover in the future.

  1. The situation of America is very alarming seeing the pro-Palestine support growing rapidly in many premium universities in America. If America fails to check this immediately the day is not far when the condition of America will become like England and Germany. More alarming is mass conversion to Islam has also been started in America. Rightly pointed out by the author the country which had already witnessed the most horrifying incident on 11th September 2001. But then also didn’t take any lesson from that. Umesh Agarwal ji has written a nice thoughtful analytical write-up on this grave jihadi crisis America is facing now.

  2. As you sow so shall you reap. Countries have been ruined and still being ruined with the American support. You create Jihadists and they settle in your backyard to stab you.
