|The American counterterrorism activist|
Bazzi is the founder and director of Arcs Counterterrorism Solutions™ by Arcs Business Solutions, LLC, a company registered in California.
Bazzi is a specialist in application architecture and development. In recent years, Bazzi shifted his focus to open source Content Management Systems (CMS), particularly Drupal, MediaWiki and WordPress, due to his interest in counterterrorism and political web publishing.
Shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, Bazzi became highly involved in the efforts to combat domestic terrorism and eventually established the Islamic Counterterrorism Institute (ICI)--a remarkable enterprise undertaken by Muslims to fight terrorism inflicted unfairly in the name of Islam. Bazzi utilizes on-line counter-ideology techniques to detect, identify, track, profile and expose domestic terrorists and their supporters.
Bazzi has worked from within the ranks of the San Francisco Bay Area Shia Muslim community since the spring of 2002. His efforts to counter the Bay Area extremist Khomeinist elements (Shiite loyalists of the anti-America Iranian regime and its founder Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini) and Hezbollah operatives were critical and impacted the Shiite community in the Bay Area (and by extension the mullah-dominated Alipur of Karnataka, the Hezbollah-controlled Dahieh and other places) very profoundly. Indeed, Bazzi introduced American-style free speech to a traditional community accustomed to having the mullahs and their henchmen monopolize the pulpit and the delivery of ideas into the minds and hearts of the congregations. Praise be to God, this was possible due to the U.S. Constitutional guarantees, chiefly the First Amendment's freedom of speech, the Internet, and the various social media tools (or, what Bazzi calls "tools of Democracy").

Bazzi preaches that "Democrary is self-correcting and self-healing." He argues that "in an ecosystem of liberty and freedom, all citizens are relatively empowered, each in accordance of his or her ability. Ideas can never be always suppressed. With the concurrence of Providence and with persistence and perseverance, a message agreeable to some or all of the citizenry can be delivered, sooner or later, for good or for bad. In such atmosphere, inspiration and influence are never the monopoly of the few."
Bazzi also strongly advocates open and complete cooperation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), something that Khomeinist organizations such as Shia Association of Bay Area (Saba Islamic Center of San Jose, CA) openly frown upon. Bazzi feels that the Shiites protecting Iranian regime and Hezbollah operatives (such as Rafic Labboun and his crew) actually endangers the Muslim community in the United States, for terrorism is not only fundamentally wrong and absolutely evil but also puts peaceful and patriotic American Muslims at dire risks.

The aggressive sectarian foreign policies of the Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamanei has put the minority Shiite community in the Levant in direct and open confrontation with their Sunni-Muslim majority brethren, neighbors, and countrymen. This is utterly unwise and shows total lack of foresight by the Shiites involved in this very bloody power struggle. The Iranian regime and Hezbollah are essentially dooming the Shiite community and willingly engaging in intra-Muslim strife that weakens the entire Islamic Nation. For this, Bazzi believes, the militant Khomeinist mullahs and their misguided followers shall be accountable here and in the hereafter.
Bazzi is very passionate about freedom and liberty and strongly feels that people in Syria, Palestine, Iran and throughout the world should be able to freely determine their own fates and achieve independent self-governance.
