Fred Grandy recaps the most important topics of the week. Grandy claims that the Sharia epicenter has become Egypt and is shocked by the breaches in security that was extended to the Muslim Brotherhood for their recent trip to the White House. Hillary Clinton seems to be engaging the Muslim Brother and disengaging Congress when she decided to give $147 million that was blocked by Congress.

The founder and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD), M. Zuhdi Jasser was recently appointed by Sen. Mitch McConnell to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. Since then he has been suffering significant attacks against his integrity and ethics by radical Muslim groups related to the Muslim Brotherhood for not defending the Muslim culture and religion. These organizations ask, “ how could a man (Jasser) who supports the curbing of Muslim civil and religious liberties at home be trusted as a 'commissioner' to review and analyze violations of religious freedoms abroad?" Dr. Jasser denounced the attacks as a defamation campaign, not only as a Muslim but as a professional as well.
Former UN Ambassador John Bolton and Senior Fellow at The American Enterprise Institute describes the progress on the North Korean missile program, and the deficient diplomatic policy of the Obama’s Administration to provide food in return for North Korea ending their missile program.

How many nuclear weapons do enemies of the United States have? It is estimated that at the end of the Cold War, the United States’ estimates for Russian nuclear weapons was off by a factor of two. How will the US be able to continue to survive in a world where its nuclear capabilities are being crippled, while our enemies’ abilities are growing? Frank opens today’s Secure Freedom Radio reflecting on the situation unfolding in countries such as China, where they allegedly have 3,000 miles of underground tunnels set aside for nuclear weapon storage. However, Chinese nuclear production peaked in 1980 and has been flat ever since. Why then is the Chinese media continually exaggerating the amount of weapons being produced each year? What are the Chinese up to these days?
Founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, Zuhdi Jasser discusses the situation unfolding in the Middle East. Have the two opposing factions in the Middle East facilitated the rise of Islamism in the region? According to Jasser, secular fascism and Islamic fascism are currently waging a war. The extreme factions created by these tensions are causing Islamism to come to fruition. Although Islamism in some countries poses as a supporter of democratic free elections, it continues to corrupt and manipulation the system. These same groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood preach the same civilization jihad that is at peace with al Qaeda’s agenda. How is the United States going to defeat these ideas globally when they continue to grow like wildfire?
Next, Kori Schake of the Hoover Institute examines how she is hopeful that Libya after forty years of dictatorship will rise to the occasion and establish helpful social services for its people. Her hopes stem from the fact that the Libyan people have done much of the on the ground fighting and established public services themselves without help from outside forces. She does not know, however, what the true intentions of the National Transitional Council are and what it means for the future of the country. Is it merely the natural outcome of Libyan society or is it a backlash to Qaddafi’s regime?
Contributing Editor for National Review Online, Andy McCarthy concludes today’s show touching on the topic of Islamophobia. Although critics define Islamophobia as “an irrational fear of Islam,” McCarthy argues that there is a need to be concerned about something that affects us all. The idea that having a rational fear of Islamism is racist is just the desire of some leftist groups to suppress free speech and assert political correctness.

What does it mean for the Free World and Israel should Palestine get a state adhering to the 1967 borders? Ambassador Yorum Ettinger tries to answer this question while also warning us of the possible implications that this would have for the United States. In Ettinger’s opinion, by supporting the establishment of a Palestinian state, international leaders are acknowledging Palestinians who were known supporters of Saddam during the 1991 Iraq War and even collaborated with him in the invasion of Kuwait. These same Palestinians condemned the US for executing Saddam. Moreover, Ettinger thinks that Mahmoud Abbas has close bonds with the top Russian government officials and was even educated in Russia. These connections could be used in the future to provide a foothold for the Russians and Chinese in the region, as well as is a death sentence for the pro-US government in Jordan. We don’t need another rogue regime that would be a tailwind for the US’s enemies.
How have the past two to three years of US foreign policy gone to sour in the Middle East, especially in Syria? Professor at the National Defense University and Lebanese native, Walid Phares joins Secure Freedom Radio today to give Frank his insights on the Syrian opposition leadership that seems to be producing some unsavory characters. Phares states that the father and son Assad regime has participated in non-stop oppression of its own people starting in the 1980s. However, the Assad regime has reached the point of no return, argues Phares, as they have refused to implement any political reforms. Additionally, he discusses how there needs to be a change of direction in Washington, such as identifying the true good guys in the region before a new policy can be implemented. The US leadership can do this by first making the distinction between the duel opposition groups: civil society and the Muslim Brotherhood backed groups.
President and Founder of the American Islamic Forum, Zuhdi Jasser shares his personal family experiences under the Assad regime in Syria. Syria is the perfect environment for radical groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood, since they offer them a veil of religious protection. Although the Muslim Brotherhood and other extremist groups would thrive in the country, Syria would never be controlled by such organizations since it would remain secular. The Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, however, causes the most problems in the United States. Most of these groups are closely intertwined with Muslim advocacy groups in the United States. This is most problematic since the Obama administration does not have the “Constitution internally to deal with it.” Jasser furthers his point by stating that the Arab Spring would only give way to the Islamist winter and when it does leaders in Washington will not be able to distinguish between Islamist rebels and those fighting for Western ideals.
Weekly guest here at Secure Freedom Radio, Jim Hanson concludes today’s show with his “boots on the ground” perspective to the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and the cuts on retirement benefits for members of the US military. While Hanson is in favor of the repeal of the discriminatory policy, he believes that sexual orientation should not be used in the military to further the gay agenda. Furthering such agendas has no business in the military, states Hanson. Military men should be respected for their service and not their sexuality. Frank also talks with Hanson about the ludicrous retirement benefit cuts for US military veterans.

Elaine Donnelly, President of the Center for Military Readiness, details the fraudulent inspector general report for the Department of Defense on implementing the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” in which a foregone conclusion was made. Donnelly asserts that the study was fixed to comply with the Administration’s agenda for a “San Francisco Military,” when in actuality our forces are not in favor of repeal, nor ready. She also explains what effects the repeal may have on retention and effectiveness of the military, particularly in the Middle East, where homosexuality is punishable by death. How’s that for a recruitment tool? Next, Congressman Frank Wolf, representing Virginia’s 10th district, addresses concerns for the Transportation Security Administration’s lack of cohesiveness in its management. As Directors shuffle in and out every several years, the TSA lacks the organization to establish a legitimate policy. The TSA recently introduced its fifth Administrator in nine years, and Wolf says it is time for new Director John Pistole to take the reins and establish an enduring strategy. Zuhdi Jasser, Founder of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, joins Frank to discuss his mission for the “separation of mosque and state,” as political Islam has hijacked the Muslim religion. Jasser stresses that the Muslim Brotherhood is not reflective of all Muslims, but also the importance for moderates, like him, to be ardent in vocalizing their stance against radical Islam. Zuhdi also explains how the Obama Administration’s “Big Tent” approach is inadequate in its Counterterrorism strategy, and instead should clearly identify the abhorrent extremist ideology and then align with those who also reject it. Finally, Washington Times Columnist Bill Gertz demonstrates his expertise from “Inside the Ring,” as he reports on China’s development of an Electromagnetic Pulse weapon, which may be in preparation for a land invasion of Taiwan. Gertz also informs on the CIA’s approach to Iran’s nuclear program and the proposed defense cuts to military benefits, and what that means for an all-volunteer force.
