“We don’t need a significant deployment to Syria. But we obviously do need to continue gathering intelligence through special ops. Our work there is obviously not over”.

Today’s suicide terror attack by ISIS and slaughter of civilians and American troops is a grim reminder that ISIS and jihadis are still active and our work is not done in Syria or Iraq. It should also be a very early reminder that the so called “Turkish safe zones” are just as dangerous as ISIS areas were and that additionally, any safe zones run by Assad or Russia will also be deadly for Kurds and American allies. This is exactly why the Kurds are against Turkish or Russian safe zones.

It also bears noting that the Iranian Hizballah axis militias refuse to remove a significant presence and any troops or weapons from Syria.

We don’t need a significant deployment to Syria. But we obviously do need to continue gathering intelligence through special ops. Our work there is obviously not over.

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy lauded Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for his speech in Cairo. Dr. Jasser, says,

As a reform-minded Muslim dedicated to advancing the ideas of liberty, it was beyond refreshing to hear our Secretary of State publicly and unwaveringly reset the misguided policies of the Obama era doctrine. The repudiation of Islamist terrorism whether from Sunni extremism of ISIS or Shi’a extremism of Iran’s Khomeinists is now a marker that has begun to clarify what a Trump Doctrine will look like for American policy in the Middle East and across the Muslim majority world. It is long overdue for the United States to lead through strength and already in less than a year since the reinstitution of sanctions and the decimation of ISIS, we have seen a rebalancing of the fragile conflicts across the region.”

Dr. Jasser concluded,

We hope that this strategy will continue to progress toward the next natural steps where the United States begins to advance from simply a defense against those that hate freedom to an offense in the advancement of the ideas of liberty and counter-Islamism.”

“Life, Liberty & Levin – an interview with Zuhdi Jasser”


We are very grateful for the recent opportunity given to AIFD President & Founder, M. Zuhdi Jasser, to join Mark Levin on “Life, Liberty & Levin”.

This in-depth interview offers many who may not be familiar with our work an insight in to our struggle to confront
the ideas of political Islam.

The love for America
and the faith of Islam is why we seek change.

AIFD directly confronts the ideas of political Islam and openly counters the common belief that the Muslim faith is rooted to the concept of the Islamic State (Islamism – the belief that Islam should guide social and political as well as personal life). We stand firmly for universal human rights – including gender equality, freedom of conscience, and freedom of speech and expression.

Our mission is to advocate for the preservation of the founding principles of the U.S. Constitution, liberty and freedom, through the separation of mosque and state.

“Believers! Conduct yourselves with justice, and bear true witness before God; even if it be against yourselves, your parents, or your kin.”

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا كُونُوا قَوَّامِينَ بِالْقِسْطِ شُهَدَاءَ لِلَّهِ وَلَوْ عَلَىٰ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَوِ الْوَالِدَيْنِ وَالْأَقْرَبِينَ إِن يَكُنْ غَنِيًّا أَوْ فَقِيرًا فَاللَّهُ أَوْلَىٰ بِهِمَا فَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا الْهَوَىٰ أَن تَعْدِلُوا وَإِن تَلْوُوا أَوْ تُعْرِضُوا فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرً
