Undercover agent, critic of Islam, to speak again in AVL, HVL
Thursday, 02 May 2019 15:50

From Staff Reports

Chris Gaubatz, billed as an “undercover researcher in the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas” who spoke about his experiences Feb. 12  and 13 in two area appearances, will return with a new presentation at 6:30 p.m. May 16 at Skyland Fire Department and 2 p.m. May 17 at City Operations Center in Hendersonville.

His previous address — and the Daily Planet’s coverage — prompted criticism from Ibrahim Hooper, who is national communications director and spokesman for the Council of American Islamic Relations, better known as CAIR. Hooper dismissed Gaubatz as an “Islamaphobe” in a March 26 interview with the Daily Planet.

Meanwhile, an Asheville Tea Party press release said that “it is with great honor and pleasure” that it announces that Gaubatz “is back by popular demand” and noting that he will address “new topics,” including “Experiences Undercover in the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas” and “Red-Green Axis, Exposing the Left Workig With Jihadis to Undermine Our Nation.”

Bilello added, “It is crucial that Americans understand and recognize the nature of the threat from radical groups that wish to destroy the very fabric of our nation so we are better prepared to confront and defend the values and principles we hold dear.”

The ATP press release noted that Gaubatz “was the lead undercover researcher in one of the most successful post-9/11 undercover operations in the United States....”

Gaubatz “posed as a Muslim convert and gained access to Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas-backed organization leadership meetings. This undercover operation is the feature of ‘Muslim Brotherhood,’ a book authored by investigative journalist Paul Sperry and Dave Gaubatz, Chris’ father, a career federal counter-intelligence agent and first civilian U.S. federal agent to enter Iraq in 2003.

“(Chris) Gaubatz has testified before the United States Senate on issues relating to the consequences of agency efforts to de-emphasize radical Islam in combating terrorism,” the ATP press release stated.

Tickets for either of the talks are $5 and may be purchased at the door, if seating is available. Advance tickets may be reserved online at
