  • His think tank released a 2010 report called “Shariah: The Threat to America” which reframed Sharia, or Islamic religious law follow by any practicing Muslim, as a “totalitarian ideology” and “legal-political-military doctrine.” (William G. “Jerry” Boykins and others “Sharia: The Threat to America”)
  • Still believes President Obama is a Muslim
  • Believes every practicing Muslim practices “taqiyya”, which the Center of Security Policy incorrectly defines as religiously mandated lying (Fear Inc., P. 34)
  • Believes the conservative movement has been infiltrated by Islamists
  • Has unhealthy obsession with Suhail Khan, a Muslim American former senior political appointee in the Bush Administration
  • Accused U.S. Army General David Petraeus of submitting to Sharia law because he strongly condemned the Quran burnings by Pastor Terry Jones
  • Believes that Islamists have infiltrated the Obama administration as well because the U.S. Missile Defense logo “appears ominously to reflect a morphin of the Islamic crescent and star with the Obama campaign logo”
    • Missile Defense Agency spokesman Rick Lehne told Washington Post in response: “This was the logo that was developed three years ago for our recruiting materials and our public web site. It did not replaceour official MDA logo, and of course it has no ties to any political campaign. It was done one year before the 2008 elections. So the whole thing is pretty ridiculous
