July 6, 2013 (From CW who says: Send to Congress. Share, use, edit… If Egypt can do it, can’t we?)
I call upon the federal government and each elected representative to now, finally, recognize the Muslim Brotherhood as detrimental to human liberty and representative democracy and to remove its influence from our shores. Whether in Egypt or in America, the Muslim Brotherhood (MB or Ikhwan), is ultimately a movement toward a global totalitarian sharia government and must be treated as such.
Confirmation of its objective is found in “The Muslim Brotherhood “Project””* (1982), wherein a 12-point strategy is outlined to “establish an Islamic government on earth.“ And in “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America”** (1991 Memorandum), wherein the MB defines its subversive agenda in the United States as:
“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ 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 and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion (Islam) is made victorious over all other religions.”
I also call on the federal government to rescind dubious non-profit status for any entities and their leadership that are shown to have affiliation with the MB. In addition, where appropriate, to have these organizations and their leadership to register with the US government as foreign agents in accordance with the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) which requires anyone “acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi-political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal, as well as activities, receipts and disbursements in support of those activities” (see www.fara.gov).
The 1991 Memorandum lists 29 MB affiliated organizations including Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Muslim Students’ Association (MSA), North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT), and Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP, linked as a predecessor to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, CAIR). Some of these organizations and/or their leadership have been exposed as supporters of jihad terror. In a gleeful bracketed note the MB author of the list of states “Imagine if they all march according to one plan!!!” (exclamation points in the original).
“The Muslim Brotherhood “Project”” lists as a key point: “To work with loyalty alongside Islamic groups and institutions in multiple areas to agree on common ground, in order to “cooperate on the points of agreement and set aside the points of disagreement”.” Just imagine if they really were to march according to one plan.
Further characterization of the MB is found in their creed: “Allah is our objective. Koran is our law. The prophet is our leader. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest aspiration.” How far can this be from al-Qaeda’s desires?
However, jihad in the way of Allah to establish Islam and sharia law does not just mean violent, armed insurrection; it also means achieving ideological objectives by means of infiltration into positions of influence within government or as advisors, costly lawsuits claiming discrimination, threats designed to squelch speech, demands for public accommodation, ownership or intimidation of the media and an ever increasing burden on public assistance systems. Foreign funding of university-level Middle Eastern programs comes with strings, with historical and ideological viewpoints that may lean toward indoctrination and not scholarly investigation. Funding, text book modifications and ideological pressure is now also being felt in elementary schools.
Sharia law must not be seen as just a religious law for Muslims, for it is a totalitarian theo-political construct under which Muslims and non-Muslims are oppressed. In addition to its hostility to the spirit of the Declaration of Independence and representative governance, at a minimum, sharia law conflicts with the US Constitution at Article IV Section 4 (republican form of government); 1st Amendment (freedom of speech, press, assembly and religion); 4th, 5th, 7th and 14th Amendments (personal security, due process); 8th Amendment (by allowing cruel and unusual punishments); and 10th Amendment (by prohibiting states’ rights). Ignorance and misplaced toleration of Islamic intolerance simply enables the advance of sharia and the retreat of open inquiry and the rule of Constitutional law.
One might reexamine the cogent letters Rep. Michele Bachmann and associates sent on June 13, 2012 to the Inspectors General of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice and the Department of State requesting a multi-department investigation into potential MB infiltration into the US government. In addition, Rep. Bachmann’s July 13, 2012 letter to Rep. Keith Ellison is particularly illuminating and includes 59 relevant footnotes to aid the reader in exploring the concerns raised. Rep. Bachmann found these letters to be both necessary and “beyond timely”—given what is going on in Egypt, this cannot be overstated.
That Islam has not yet achieved its objective or that it seems unachievable is immaterial, the global and domestic efforts to do so are in themselves destructive of our nation and free society. Egypt is demonstrating its resolve and its tilt toward freedom by once again containing the Ikhwan, the Muslim Brothers; I think it is time for us to consider the same.
The bombs of Boston, the massacre at Fort Hood and the infiltration of our nation are each dots of jihad to be connected and used in defense of self. It is moral and right that we do so; it is unconscionable that we have delayed self-defense for so long.
“The refusal of the Western elite class to protect their nations from jihadist infiltration is the biggest betrayal in history.” ~Serge Trifkovic
