HIAWASSEE, Ga. – Towns County Republican Party, in cooperation with Towns-Union Tea Party, is scheduled to host a presentation on Islam, Jihad, and Sharia Law, featuring Chris Gaubatz, a renowned expert on the subject. The presentation will take place Thursday, March 28, at the Towns County Civic Center in Hiawassee. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. The event will begin at 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend at no charge.
The following morning, Friday, March 29, Gaubatz will address the Mountain Movers and Shakers at 8 a.m. at Sundance Grill in Hiawassee. Meetings are open to the public.
Gaubatz trains law enforcement on strategies and modus operandi of jihadists in order to locate and prosecute the networks, testifying before the U.S. Senate on the importance of minimizing radical Islam in combatting terrorism. Gaubatz works with citizens, legislators, and leaders at the local and state levels to expose and dismantle the networks.
“Muslim terrorists, by whatever name, are all believers in fundamental Islam and have declared war against western civilization, especially America and the Jewish State of Israel,” Gaubatz said.
Gaubatz is Vice President of Understanding the Threat.com, an organization dedicated to providing strategic and operational threat-focused consultation, education and training for federal, state, and local leadership and agencies, and designing strategies at all levels of the community in order to defeat the jihadi threat. As the son of a career Air Force OSI Special Agent, Gaubatz grew up in England, Korea, California, and Utah, and today calls southwest Virginia home. Gaubatz worked for several Fortune 500 companies conducting fraud investigations and asset protection, as well as insurance sales.
In 2007, Gaubatz began researching the threat of jihadi organizations in the United States by posing as a Muslim convert and attending Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas conferences gaining access as an intern with the Hamas organization Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Virginia.
While working at the CAIR MD/VA office, Gaubatz uncovered a fraud scheme perpetrated by CAIR’s “immigration attorney” who was defrauding Muslims in the community while lying about handling their immigration proceedings. When the office was shut down by CAIR in an effort to conceal this criminal activity, Gaubatz was invited by Hamas/CAIR leaders to work at their headquarters in Washington, D.C. During that time, Gaubatz obtained over 12,000 pages of documents from Hamas/CAIR and over 300 hours of covert audio/video recordings. The entire story is featured in the book Muslim Mafia authored by investigative journalist Paul Sperry and Dave Gaubatz.
Towns County Republican Chair Betsy Young encouraged the community to attend the presentation. “Please plan to come and hear Chris open your eyes,” Young remarked. “Bring a friend.”
