While conducting exhaustive research for my book “Militant Islam In America” (Published 2006) I learned more about the threat of Islamic extremism in this country than I could have imagined. With word-count limits, this article will barely touch on the subject.
Americans should understand is that Jihad has two faces: Violent and Stealth. Our government, under President Bush as well as Obama, freely addresses violent jihad (terrorism) but never acknowledges the stealth aspect of radical Islam impacting the future of our nation.
They’re here, pretending to be the good guys.
Defined, jihad means “Struggle.” To a “Jihadist,” it means struggle for world dominance.
Americans should also know is that Islam is not just another religion. In its purist sense and where Islam dominates other countries, it is a political ideology, a culture of social and political mores with a system of laws known as Sharia.
The Muslim Brotherhood is the most powerful and dominant example of Islamic extremism in the world, having orchestrated the so-called “Arab Spring” in 2011 from which we lost one of our more staunch allies in Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak. Today,Egypt is under the cloak of Islamic radicalism far more sinister than Mubarak ever imposed.
The Muslim Brotherhood is omnipresent inside our own shores, with tentacles reaching our infrastructure through more than thirty front organizations, the most significant of which is the Council on American Islamic Relations, (CAIR) an army of lawyers working to strengthen Islamic law wherever possible so that Sharia will be accepted in our legal system. Here is the unwavering motto of the Brotherhood: Quran is our law; Jihad is our way; Dying for Allah is our highest hope.
Discovered hidden in a prominent Islamist’s Virginia home in 2004 by the FBI during an investigation of the Holy Land Foundation, (funneling money to terrorists) a massive document was unearthed, written in Arabic, spelling out the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood in America. In part, it states: The Ikhwan (Brothers) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands so that God’s religion is made victorious….
Note: From Within
In 2001, another lengthy document authored by the hierarchy of the Brotherhood was found by Swiss authorities hidden in a prominent Islamists home inSwitzerland, titled: “The Project.” This document enumerates the game plan (or war plan) by which the Muslim Brotherhood intends on deploying their plan, including:
- Use deception to mask the goals of Islamic actions (lying)
- Collect funds and indefinitely support jihad around the world
- Instrumentally, use existing western institutions until they can be converted to the service of Islam
- Maintain the appearance of “moderation.”
- Implement a watchdog system for monitoring western media
- Keep Muslims living in America in a jihad frame of mind.
The Prophet Muhammed was quoted in the Hadith: “War is Deceit.”
Sadly, for our grandkids, this may be a war we never really knew how to fight.
