Ask the Experts provides you the reader with a list of experts, Muslim and non-Muslim, on the subjects of Islam, jihad, shariah and Fitna.

It is important to educate oneself in order to understand the current and future threat to the United States and the free world. The threat doctrine of the Global Islamic Movement is Islam. The strategy to implement that doctrine is Fitna.

We highly recommend you visit daily and the websites of each of these individuals weekly to keep up with the latest Fitnaphobic attacks on our freedom of religion, freedom of speech, liberty and the U.S. Constitution.

Dr. Bill Warner, Ph.D.

Dr. Warner founded the website Political Islam. Bill holds a PhD in physics and math, NC State University, 1968. He has been a university professor, businessman, and applied physicist. He was a Member of the Technical Staff in solid-state physics at the Sarnoff Princeton Laboratories in the area of integrated circuit structures. During the energy crisis of the 80’s he founded and ran a company that specialized in energy efficient homes. For eight years he was a professor at Tennessee State University in the Engineering School. Dr. Warner has had a life-long interest in religion and its effects on history. He has studied the source texts of the major religions for decades. Even before the destruction of the World Trade Center he had predicted the war between Islam and America. The day after 9/11 he decided to make the source texts of Islam available for the average person. Dr. Warner’s training in scientific theory and mathematics shaped how he analyzed Islamic doctrine. The first step was realizing that the Islamic texts had been made deliberately difficult to read and comprehend. A program, the Trilogy Project (see below), was created to strip away the confusion in the texts. It became clear that Islam is not constructed on the same civilizational principles as the rest of the world. Simple statistical methods revealed that dualism and submission were the foundational principles of Islamic doctrine.

Walid Shoebat

I used to be a radicalized Muslim willing to die for the cause of Jihad until I converted to Christianity in 1994. As a member of the PLO I was involved in terror activity, and was imprisoned in Jerusalem for three weeks. In prison, I was recruited to plant a bomb in Bethlehem as a result of which, thank God, no one was injured. My mother was an American and my father a Palestinian Arab. My parents sent me in 1978 to the United States to study at Loop College in Chicago Illinois. There I was recruited at a hotel “Terror Conference” by Jamal Said, a founder of the IAP (Islamic Association of Palestine) and Imam at one of the largest mosques in Chicago. The IAP was a forerunner to today’s Hamas terror organization and also to the terror front group CAIR (Council for American Islamic relations). This was in the early 1980s when I was being trained for Jihad activities in the USA along with many other young foreigners as well as US citizens. The Imams were the prime recruiters for terrorism then as they are still today and terror conferences are held all over the USA to this day. Here is a link to a sample we have on video which was held in 1989, over twelve years before the 9/11 attacks.

Today, Jamal Said is still the Imam of the Bridgeview Mosque in Chicago. Based on my eye witness testimony, he supports terrorism and and is a major player in the operations of the Jihadi movements in the USA – yet he is still free at large. I state the above so you know, Congressman King, my background and firsthand knowledge of the issue. I speak to the American people to warn and educate them about the very great dangers which are very underplayed both by our media and our political leaders.
