ACT! for America, an anti-Sharia group founded by Brigitte Gabriel, “a Lebanese immigrant who came to the United States after losing her country of birth to militant Muslim fundamentalists during the Lebanese Civil War,” has started a letter writing campaign against the possible nomination of UN Ambassador Susan Rice as Secretary Of State. Rice has been named a top prospect to replace Hillary Clinton in the Cabinet post should Clinton keep her promise to leave the Obama Administration after one term.
The grassroots organization has been quite active warning Americans against violent Jihad, Islamist terrorism and Sharia Law. As is usually the case, Act! claims to be a patriotic organization that has nothing against law abiding Muslims, while detractors label Act! an Islamophobic hate group. The group denies the charges and insists on its patriotic purpose.
“ACT! for America is a non-partisan, non-sectarian organization whose mission is to give Americans concerned about national security, terrorism, and the threat of radical Islam, a powerful, organized, informed and mobilized voice.”
“Whether the specific threat is violent jihad, stealth jihad, the advance of sharia law, the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, or the scourge of political correctness which is enabling the rise of radical Islam, ACT! for America stands ready to take action as the largest national security grassroots organization in America.”
