Founder and Executive Director, Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), since 1995.
He hit the headlines in the UK in 2015 when he claimed on Fox News:
“In Britain, it’s not just no-go zones, there are actual cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim where non-Muslims just simply don’t go in. And, parts of London, there are actually Muslim religious police that actually beat and actually wound seriously anyone who doesn’t dress according to religious Muslim attire.”

Hugh Fitzgerald is Vice President of Jihad Watch and was cited in Anders Breivik’s manifesto.
He has written for numerous Islamophobic sites, including Jihad Watch, Frontpage Mag, and PJ Media.
In 2009 Fitzgerald wrote the following in a Jihad Watch article:
The Western world should show no great interest in helping Saudi Arabia. It should be secretly delighted with each day’s news, the news that brings word not of Infidel casualties, but of Muslim casualties, inflicted by other Muslims.
[…] We should take pleasure in the spectacle of warfare, in any Muslim land, warfare that takes up the attention of the locals, and uses up not only their resources, but also, one hopes, the resources of their neighbors.
Chris Gaubatz is the son of Paul David Gaubatz, former director of the Mapping Shariah project at the Society of Americans for National Existence (SANE) and co-author of Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Conspiring to Islamize America (2009). Paul was hired as a contractor in early 2008 by the Center for Security Policy (CSP) to assist with a documentary, the “field research” of which was used in Muslim Mafia.
The book drew on Chris’s infiltration of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in 2007, following his father’s training. Interning first at CAIR’s Virginia office and later its Washington D.C. office whilst posing as Muslim convert and Ferrum College student ‘David Marshall’, Chris secretly recorded his co-workers and took 12,000 internal CAIR documents. Following legal action Paul Gaubatz was ordered to remove the documents from his blog (to be returned to CAIR), though as of October 2018 the case filed by CAIR against Paul Gaubatz in 2009 is ongoing.
Chris joined the Islamophobic consultation group founded by John Guandolo, Understanding the Threat (UTT), in May 2016 as Vice President but resigned in April 2018. He was revealed to be President of the RAIR Foundation USA following an advertisement for a “National Security Briefing” event featuring him on 4 June 2018 Cincinnati, hosted by ACT for America’s Southwest Ohio chapter.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) have reported that Frank Thiboutot, head of the Portland, Maine chapter of ACT for America claimed in June 2014 that ACT for America Maine had hired Gaubatz to investigate several mosques in the state and that his affidavits had been given to the Governor of Maine.
As of October 2018 RAIR’s website has reverted to a page inviting visitors to sign-up, however, prior to this people could submit photos and contact information of those they believed were “accomplices” to jihadi terrorists.
Israeli-born and Los Angeles-based Daniel Greenfield is a columnist and Shillman Fellow at FrontPage magazine, the “online journal” of the David Horowitz Freedom Center (DHFC) and runs its subsidiary blog, The Point. Prior to joining FrontPage, Greenfield developed a following through his still active blog, Sultan Knish. The FrontPage site claims that, following the introduction of The Point in November 2012, the site’s traffic has tripled.
Greenfield describes his “journalistic beat [as] […] everything from Islamic terrorism in Argentina to leftist politics in America”, with this fear-mongering coverage of Muslims and Islam falling well in line with the counter-jihad themes of an Islamic civilizational clash with the West. In a July 2012 article he declared, in an article entitled ‘Why the West Loves Lying to Itself About Islam’, that the “sunk cost of the free world into the illusion that Islam is benign, that it is a positive influence and that it can be coexisted with is enormous”. Similarly, he has leapt upon the Refugee Crisis to perpetuate ideas of Western collapse. In a September 2015 article, ‘The Invasion of Buffalo: Destroying America city by city” he wrote that a “savage invasion” of Buffalo, New York began in the mid-2000s following refugee resettlement programs and the resulting “large numbers of Muslims [that] have been dumped in the area”.
Guandolo is a former FBI agent now working full-time as a ‘counter-terrorism’ consultant.
He travels America giving training and seminars to law enforcement and civilians alike on the threat from jihad, radical Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. and “your neighborhood”.
His law enforcement training courses lack official accreditation and are often cancelled, partly because he argues that American Muslims “do not have a First Amendment right to do anything”.
In March 2018 Guandolo tweeted a picture of a Southwest Airlines employee, calling them “a sharia adherent muslim (aka jihadi)”. The tweet has since been deleted.

Christopher Holton is the Vice President for Education and Outreach the Center for Security Policy (CSP). Founded in 1988 as a national security think tank, the Washington D.C.-based CSP campaigns against Sharia law and the supposed Islamisation of the United States. It has played a prominent role in recent years in the counter-jihad movement in the United States.
Holton first worked with the CSP whilst in his role as editor-in-chief at the Blanchard Economic Research Unit at Blanchard & Co., an investment firm focused on rare coins and precious metals (where he had previously been President and Marketing Director since 1990). In 2000, Holton co-authored a report with the CSP entitled Clinton’s Legacy: The Dangerous Decade which claimed to expose “the failed Clinton-Gore politics of the last eight years that have left America vulnerable to a new age of tension”.
Holton joined the CSP in 2004 as Vice President, directing their ‘Divest Terror Initiative’ which aims to “to empower American investors to cut off financial support for terrorist sponsoring nations” and the ‘Shariah Risk Due Diligence Project’, which “investigate[s] and scrutinize[s] Shariah-Compliant Finance in the West to expose ties to Islamist extremism”. Holton has also acted as editor of the ‘Shariah Finance Watch’ blog since 2008 and since 2015 has been the CSP’s Vice President for Education and Outreach. This role has seen him consult on “Jihadist threat doctrine, Shariah law and terrorism to state and local officials, civic groups and the public at large”.
External to the CSP, Holton also maintains the ‘Terror Trends Bulletin’ blog and publishes an accompanying newsletter under the same name. Holton claims these keep people informed of “the latest issues in terrorism”, though his fixation is “Jihadist Terrorism” specifically. His blog has promoted Islamophobia, such as in November 2017 when, following a stabbing at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, he wrote that “We are going to go ahead and speculate that this is a case of knife jihad”, citing reasons such as that “There is a large Muslim population in the Bloomington area and it includes large numbers of Somalis”.
