Why is this significant? Because an unsuspecting America is being bombarded by an organization that it dedicated to the proposition of presenting themselves as moderate while training followers within the homeland to subvert the United States by destroying it from within.
One of the great misconceptions about terrorism is that is must be violent. Extremists have learned that it is frequently easier to infiltrate by using nonviolent methods, especially through political tactics. For that reason, every American should be leery of the fact that the Obama administration has no less than six high ranking officials who are directly linked with the Muslim Brotherhood.
That is not to point fingers or to say these advisors have influenced U.S. policy…yet. On the other hand, imagine the outcome in June 1944 if General Eisenhower had selected six Germans to advise him on the planning of D-Day.
Whenever such ideas are presented the immediate reaction from opposing perspectives is to decry such thoughts as conspiratorial. Perhaps, but in a book called The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America by Andrew McCarthy, the onetime federal prosecutor who was responsible for convicting Blind Sheikh Omar Obdel-Rahman presents credible facts about the Brotherhood’s internal goals in the U.S.
Two highly visible organizations created by the Muslim Brotherhood are extremely influential throughout the country today. Both the Muslim Students’ Association (MSA) and the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) claim to be moderate groups whose primary interests are purely to clarify misconceptions about Islam and Islamist extremism.
If you buy into that, then they have succeeded, just as they did in Egypt when Hosni Mubarak was overthrown and replaced by the “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi.
If you really want to know the truth about what is happening read McCarthy’s book which provides explicit details about the MB’s methods. Among the topics McCarthy discusses is a document called “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America.” This May 1991 memo written by Mohamed Akram was captured by the FBI and entered as evidence during the Holy Land Foundation trial.
Following are some excerpts from the Brotherhood’s own internal documents. Read them and then decide whether this is a “conspiracy theory” or not.
“Enablement of Islam in North America meaning: establishing an effective and stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims’ efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic state, wherever it is.
In order for Islam and it Movement to become “a part of the homeland” in which it lives, “stable” in its land, “rooted” in the spirits and minds of its people, “enabled” in the live (sic) of the society and has firmly-established “organizations” on which the Islamic structure is built and with which the testimony of civilization is achieved, the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain “the keys” and the tools of this process in carry (sic) out this grand mission as a “Civilization Jihadist” responsibility which lies on the shoulders of Muslims and – on top of them – the Muslim Brotherhood in this country.
“The process of settlement is a “Civilization Jihadist Proecess” (sic) with all the word means: The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within (emphasis added) and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hand of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahadeen be equal.”
These paragraphs were excerpted and documented by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), a non-profit research organization which is “recognized at the world’s most comprehensive data center on radical Islamic terrorist groups.”
If El Watan in Egypt is correct, there should be much cause for concern in the United States for all Americans.
