Tom Trento Tries to Rally Shock Troops to Protest Local Muslim Conference

crazy-guy-trento

Tom Trento

by Jacob Hausner

That Tom Trento is a hate-filled propagandist is common knowledge by now. He is as much a ‘human rights’ activist as David Duke or any racist who relies on lies, half-truths and innuendo to plead his case.

Trento has for quite some time been active in agitating anti-Islam and anti-Muslim efforts in Florida. In 2008, in the run up to the election of President Barack Obama, Trento was busy peddling the hate-filled anti-Muslim movie, “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War with the West.”

The website, Obsession for Hate, both catalogued and detailed the propagandistic efforts of the funders of “Obsession,” Aisha HaTorah and the Clarion Fund, to affect the outcome of the election. The not-so veiled strategy was to freely distribute 28 million DVD’s of Obsession in newspapers inside key electoral swing states, to fear-monger about the so-called pending Islamization of the USA. If anyone recalls the election of 2008, Barack Obama’s faith was a central talking point in which Republicans sought to take advantage, thinking they could sway voters by maligning the president as an evil, madrassa-indoctrinated, fifth-columnist “Muslim.”

“Obsession” failed, but that did not stop Trento.

It is 2012 now, and another election is around the corner, queue-in Trento and his fanatical band of doomsday, fear-mongering naysayers! Once again Islam and the Muslims are to be feared, and even more so, ironically because of the Arab Spring!

Trento produced the video below, calling on his compatriots to join him to protest an upcoming Islamic Society of North America conference in Florida:

Now, I would have been content to just post this article in response: ‘The United West’ Video: Is It From the Onion? No, This Lunacy is Real!, but on further consideration I don’t want to leave the Islamophobes with any excuses!

About the only thing that Trento got right in the above video is that, yes, Hasan Al-Banna did create the Muslim Brotherhood in 1928.

By now there is a plethora of well researched, academic and even lay literature on the “Muslim Brotherhood.” Just Google “Muslim Brotherhood” and you will come out with dozens of interesting titles.

One does not have to agree with or like the Muslim Brotherhood to, at the very least, concede that the Muslim Brotherhood never “joined” the Nazis in World War II. That is just a blatant lie!

So let’s look at the lies presented by Trento, one by one:

Trento Lie #1.) “Muslim Brotherhood joined the ‘Nazis’ during World War II.”

Truth: As Matthias Kuntzel noted in his book, “Jihad and Jew-Hatred: Islamism, Nazism and the Roots of 9/11″ (Telos Press, 2007),

‘it would be wrong to characterize the Muslim Brothers as ardent followers of the Nazis.’

Richard Wolin in an exchange with Jeffrey Herf (author of “Nazi Propaganda for the Arab World”) comments on this, saying,

Here there is simply no squaring the circle; too many aspects of Nazi ideology–its paganism, its Aryan racial doctrines, its conception of Germanic geopolitical supremacy–are incompatible with the key tenets of political Islam. As Küntzel rightly concludes, Hassan al-Banna was too devout a Muslim to latch on to someone as impious as Hitler as a political role model.

Trento Lie #2: “In 1981, that same Muslim Brotherhood assassinated Anwar Sadat.”

Truth: A quick read on Wikipedia could have easily disabused Trento of this embarrassing falsity. Anwar Sadat was assassinated by Khalid Islambouli and a group of renegade Egyptian military soldiers. Islambouli, in fact was not a member of the Muslim Brotherhood but instead of a group called the “Egyptian Islamic Jihad,”

After graduating from the Egyptian Military Academy with excellent grades, he was accepted as an officer in the Bombardment Forces of the Egyptian Army with the rank of Lieutenant. Sometime after this appointment, Islambouli joined the proscribed Egyptian Islamic Jihad movement.

Trento Lie #3: “In 2011, that same Muslim Brotherhood overthrew President Hosni Mubarak, for the express purpose, as the United West predicted, to establish the Islamic caliphate in Egypt.”

Truth: Trento seems to be living in the past when the internet and new media wasn’t readily available. As it turns out it wasn’t the “Muslim Brotherhood” that overthrew Hosni Mubarak, (who wasn’t really a “president” as Trento so reverently refers to him, but a “dictator”) they were actually late to the protest game, it was a mass popular movement of “Egyptians” that toppled Mubarak. To suggest otherwise is tantamount to spitting on the sacrifices of all those brave souls who were killed, injured and tortured by Mubarak-thugs. Most rational people realize this.

Trento Lie #4: “Obama…gave the Muslim Brotherhood 1.5 billion dollars”

Truth: Seriously? Do we have to even answer this one? In fact, the money was not given to the Muslim Brotherhood, but to Egypt, just as it has been for over thirty years ever since the Camp David accords, when President Jimmy Carter reached a peace deal between Egypt and Israel.

Trento Lie #5: “Now, in May, the Muslim Brotherhood is coming to Tampa Bay, Florida for the express purpose of continuing the ‘cultural jihad’ to turn the United States eventually into an Islamic State.”

Truth: Trento is referring to the Islamic Society of North America’s (ISNA) “East Zone Conference.” ISNA happens to be one of the oldest and largest Muslim organizations in the United States, and perusing their website, ISNA.net, and looking at the program and topics of the conference, there was surprisingly NOT one lecture, seminar or group activity relating to “cultural jihad to turn the United States eventually into an Islamic State.”

If we were to find anything relatively close to what Trento is talking about I am sure it would have been on ISNA’s own website, right!? Alas, it does not exist, and much like Trento’s ludicrous video, this too is an outlandish, kooky lie, ginned up to try and rally anti-Islam bigots and shock troops to counter a peaceful Muslim conference.

Hopefully, Trento’s “protest” won’t devolve into the type of hate-filled “protests” we have come to know and expect from him and his friends:

  1. Wow, what a presentation. If it wasn’t for the wonderous knowledge of the internets, I might have believed that the Ikhwani Muslameen had their hands in so much. Perhaps Trento is the ‘Baghdad Bob’ of the Ikhwan saying that there more powerful than they are. lol what a loser

  2. maybe the Muslims should protest him instead…

  3. maybe the Muslims should protest him instead…

  4. More right-wing pond scum. This moron is more like the Taliban than he’ll ever understand, the same vile outlook on anything that looks and sounds different than himself. What are we becoming as a nation?

  5. More right-wing pond scum. This moron is more like the Taliban than he’ll ever understand, the same vile outlook on anything that looks and sounds different than himself. What are we becoming as a nation?

  6. Why don’t we Muslims show him Islamic kindness to win over his heart and mind? Welcome him to the ISNA Conference as an honorary guest, make him feel welcomed so his opinions of real Muslims can change for good. Inshallah!

  7. How very sad. I pray to Jesus that hate and ignorance do not win the day.

  8. This legitimately makes me sick to my stomach. I feel incredibly appalled at what I have just seen, god help him.

  9. Two words for this sick man, you lose!

  10. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muslim_Brotherhood

    “”The Brotherhood’s stated goal is to instill the Qur’an and Sunnah as the “sole reference point for …ordering the life of the Muslim family, individual, community … and state”. The movement officially opposes violent means to achieve its goals, although it at one time encompassed a paramilitary wing and its members were involved in massacres, bombings and assassinations of political opponents; notably Egyptian Prime Minister Mahmoud an-Nukrashi Pasha and the movement’s own founder Hassan al-Banna.[4][5] The movement has been criticized by al-Qaeda for its support for democratic elections rather than armed jihad.”

  11. “Its founder, Hassan Al-Banna, was influenced by Islamic reformers Muhammad Abduh and Rashid Rida. In the group’s belief, the Quran and Sunnah constitute a perfect way of life and social and political organization that God has set out for man. Islamic governments must be based on this system and eventually unified in a Caliphate. The Muslim Brotherhood’s goal, as stated by Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna was to reclaim Islam’s manifest destiny, an empire, stretching from Spain to Indonesia.”

  12. “political freedom to the extent allowed by the laws of Islam.”

    seriously, these are people to be defended. the laws of islam are so backwards and brutal who in their right mind would want to see them imposed?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    the koran and sunnah, have any of you readed the koran or hadiths????

  13. The Brotherhood’s credo was and is, “God is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations.”[11][12] The Brotherhood’s English language website describes the “principles of the Muslim Brotherhood” as including firstly the introduction of the Islamic Shari`ah as “the basis controlling the affairs of state and society;” and secondly work to unify “Islamic countries and states, mainly among the Arab states, and liberating them from foreign imperialism”.[13]

    According to a spokesman, the MB believe in reform, democracy, freedom of assembly, press, etc.

  14. Man, what is up Florida?? Don’t they realize they are surrounded by beautiful beaches? Southern/Latin culture? The Everglades? Sports teams? There are so many better things to do there than be a sucky white trash asshole!

  15. hassan,

    i’m out posting u????

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahmoud_an-Nukrashi_Pasha

    “He was assassinated by a 21 year-old student and member of the Muslim Brotherhood, disguised as a police official, while in office.”

  16. The ISNA supports terrorist and anti-Semites. Why else would they invite Siraj Wahhaj and Abdel Malik Ali to a “charity” event?

  17. Soo, this terrible terrorist is going to assemble a few non-violent protestors to protest an objectionable political event involving who? It seems that the Brotherhood is terrified.

  18. […] In a video posted on YouTube, Tom Trento issues many falsities, deconstructed by Hausner below: by Jacob Hausner (Islamophobia Today) […]

  19. The reason there is no seminar, etc. on cultural jihad to tun the US into an Islamic state is that muslims have learned not to say that in public as they did at meetings back in the 90s.

    We do have Obama advisor Dalia Mogahed dreaming of the perfect Islamic state, I’m sure she is not alone in that theocratic delusion.

    And muslims call the Trinity ridiculous.

  20. Jews call the trinity rediculous, yet it seems to be okay, with right wing Christians. Islam loves Jesus, believes in his teachings, and his ascension to heaven, and all his miracles and his miraculous birth, but trinity, is not in the bible, in fact the word Christian is not found in the bible, trinity was voted on in 325 A.D, the council of Nicea. by the way , look up Numbers 23-19. It makes Islam sound like it knows somEthing you don’t. Read it and weep. Oh by the way look up Isiah chap 19 versus 18-25. It says Egypt is God’s people! Psych! It’s funny, that the land of the bible from Iraq to Egypt, is mostly Muslim,God works in mysterious ways. What religion are pagan Rome and Greece TODAY? The land of 0 prophets? Wake up to the truth. Genesis 17-20. Wow, that’s the Muslims too!

  21. Fucky Whore,

    The Us and the West support, promote and shelter motherfuckers like Piles, Stencher, Cumella Failure and others. Hold on: they maintain the murderous beasts called their armed forces who are the number one terrorists on earth apid for by common Americans who have little problems about their military and security pigs intervening and murdering others for their brutal amusement.

    Anon,

    No, Muslims do not need that. I have told you many times and that is disgusting. Do you know the meaning of Jihad? It menas struggle, not holy war like crusade. And among the five pillars of Islam, it has no place. So why are you after this term and grossly misusing it? Just for backing your bullshit arguments and baseless hatred?

    Of course, there is no seminar, symposium, conference, workshop on cultural Jihad. When and what did Muslims remain silent about in public in the 90s? So far as the 90s are concerned, US and the West had quite good relations with Muslims apart from some exceptions.

    You may have Muslims in your government and accuse them of dreaming the US becoming a Muslim state. If you have so deep and effective a vision, please ask your government/NATO to decommission all security equipment, measures and employ yourself instead as the soul security monitor. You will do much better than them as they don’t have access to people’s dreams like you do. About your trinity comment I won’t go further as you have already received your due from Ty. Even then if you speak up, I hope I have the dose for you.

    When crapping through your mouth about others, have some sense and sensibility about what is coming out of you. Or you will remain the fucking bullshit like yourself till the last judgement day.

  22. Jacob Hausner and others,
    Name a time in history since the inception of Islam that the Islamic world and Muslims were at peace with Judeo-Christianity, Hinduism and all non- Muslim cultures?
    Islamophobia is not real because by definition it means a delusional fear of, a phobia, something miss perceived. Islam leaves in it’s path death, destruction, mayhem and Dhimmititude and has done so for close to 1,400 years.
    Before you all censor Tom Trento, understand what Islam and Muslims truly intend for Christians, Hindus, Jews and all non-Muslims. Read about Muhammad, the perfect human being, and Islams history and decide only after you’ve digested that Islamic History and the past 2 years of butchery of Christians in Nigeria, Sudan, Syria and elsewhere in the Islamic world just what da’wa, jihad and Dhimmititude mean for all non Muslims.
    Ignorance is death……
    Lance

  23. The bible is chock full of violence. Killing babies. Slavery. Incest. Christian history is full of violence. Genocide. Torture. Christians in politics are more concerned with reproduction than jobs. How are christians any better than muslims? Maybe if we’d mind our own business instead of invading other countries for their resources…people would like us better. Ya think?

  24. I am sick of people who come to this country to be anything but Ameican. You’ve never heard of other religions coming to this country and trying to impose their laws. These people have a mission, to indoctrinate youth into this sick concept they call a “religion”. It is not a peaceful religion as it provides a path of violence against non followers. It orders its followers to separate/convert or kill non belivers. Any religion that awards the killing of non belivers should be band from this country.
