During a House floor speech regarding immigration and, among other things, the need to support the efforts of the state of Arizona to defend itself, Gohmert made known an alternate plan in which the assault and undermining of the United States could take place. Citing a conversation with a retired FBI agent, Gohmert stated:
I talked to a retired FBI agent who said that one of the things they were looking at were terrorist cells overseas who had figured out how to game our system. And it appeared they would have young women who became pregnant ... would get them into the United States to have a baby. They wouldn’t even have to pay anything for the baby. And then they would return back where they could be raised and coddled as future terrorists. And then one day, 20-30 years down the road, they could be sent in to help destroy our way of life because they figured out how stupid we are being in this country to allow our enemies to game our system, hurt our economy, get set up in a position to destroy our way of life and we won’t do anything about it. We’ll even sue a state that tries to do something about it.
The idea of raising certain members of this or that populace to hate and target America is not new. It is well known that in Cuba, for example, some parts of military training (e.g., the Youth Labor Army) propagandize their trainees from boyhood in an environment that is specifically anti-American. But it evidentally is not as well known that organizations such as al-Qaeda have long utilized the method of infiltrating the United States in the manner that Rep. Gohmert has described. Despite the guffaws of some liberals in response to what Gohmert has revealed, raising special forces for a special job is actually an old war maneuver in the Muslim world.
Janizaries (or Janissaries), were used for centuries in Turkish armies. And what were they? Christian boys who were taken prisoner in battle or kidnapped, and then were raised in a Muslim atmosphere while militarily trained to be used both for special guard duty and in battle. They were “crack troops” — special forces — carefully used both at home and with great effect in military battle, and with particular relish against Christian armies.
In the battle for the border in the American southwest (and elsewhere in the U.S., for that matter) it has been documented that many of those crossing the Mexican border illegally are not Mexican. And the “anchor baby” maneuver to access American goods and services — and citizenship — is not restricted just to Mexicans, either. If Muslim terrorists are willing to act out their hostilities by flying airplanes into buildings, why would they not attack on another front, using a simpler, “old fashioned” plan as well?
Infiltrating America by adapting an ancient, well-proven strategy to the current situation would be both easy and logical. With the United States currently bogged down in illegal immigration fights both on the border and among its governmental officials, what better moment for such Muslem family planning, “American style”? Though this war is a relatively new one for the United States., it is an old, ongoing one for Muslim terrorists who are are used to thinking in the long term.
Congressman Gohmert’s alert may be ignored to America's further peril.
