My Weekly WND Exclusive – The Clueless Left’s Alignment with Radical Islam

I recently wrote an article on the Day Without a Woman protest, or strike, or whatever it turned out to be.

Unbeknownst to every participant, I’m sure, the women’s protest for equality (or whatever the heck it was) was not organized by concerned citizens or even feminist groups like the National Organization for Women. It was in fact organized largely by extremist Islamists – one a Shariah law advocate and another a known terrorist.

One of the various ways the Muslim Brotherhood has had success infiltrating American society is that they organize and involve themselves in events to co-opt liberal causes, further advancing their radical Islamic ideology. They also promote liberal causes in an effort to piggyback onto any potential legislative measure created to placate whiny leftists. This is part of their overall plan, which has been dubbed Civilization Jihad. read more

The Project

The Blueprint for Cultural Jihad

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Unlike us, but much like American progressives, Islamists are a patient lot. They know it takes time to conquer the west.

In 1982 the Muslim Brotherhood drafted a document called The Project. It was, and still is, a how to take over the west guide. It was discovered during a raid by Swiss authorities in November, 2001.

 Only through the work of a Swiss journalist, Sylvain Besson of Le Temps, and his book published in October 2005 in France, La conquête de l’Occident: Le projet secret des Islamistes (The Conquest of the West: The Islamists’ Secret Project), has information regarding The Project been made public.

 The Project was unearthed during a raid of a villa in Campione, Switzerland on November 7, 2001. The target of the raid was Youssef Nada, director of the Al-Taqwa Bank of Lugano, who had active association with the Muslim Brotherhood for more than 50 years and who admitted to being one of the organization’s international leaders. As we know, the Muslim Brotherhood, regarded as the oldest and one of the most important Islamist movements in the world, was founded by Hasan al-Banna in 1928 and dedicated to the credo, “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

The raid was conducted by Swiss law enforcement at the request of the Bush White House in the initial crackdown on terrorist finances in the immediate aftermath of 9/11. U.S. and Swiss investigators had been looking at Al-Taqwa’s involvement in money laundering and funding a wide range of Islamic terrorist groups, including Al-Qaeda, HAMAS (the Palestinian affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood), the Algerian GIA, and the Tunisian Ennahdah.

Included in the documents seized during the raid of Nada’s Swiss villa was a 14-page plan written in Arabic and dated December 1, 1982, which outlines a 12-point strategy to “establish an Islamic government on earth” – identified as The Project. According to testimony given to Swiss authorities by Nada, the unsigned document was prepared by “Islamic researchers” associated with the Muslim Brotherhood. Yes, the same Brotherhood who’s members work in our current administration.

What makes The Project so different from the standard “Death of America! Death to Israel!” and “Establish the global caliphate!” Islamist rhetoric is that it represents a flexible, multi-phased, long-term approach to the “cultural invasion” of the West. Calling for the utilization of various tactics, ranging from immigration, infiltration, surveillance, propaganda, protest, deception, political legitimacy and terrorism, The Project has served for three decades as the Muslim Brotherhood “master plan”.

Below is a list of tactics, techniques and recommendations made in The ‘Project’.

(remember, this was 1982. Thirty years ago)

How many can you recognize that have either been established or are being actively pursued presently either in the U.S. or Europe?

  • Networking and coordinating actions between likeminded Islamist organizations;
  • Avoiding open alliances with known terrorist organizations and individuals to maintain the appearance of “moderation”
  • Infiltrating and taking over existing Muslim organizations to realign them towards the Muslim Brotherhood’s collective goals
  • Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions, as long as it doesn’t conflict with Shariah law
  • Avoiding social conflicts with Westerners locally, nationally or globally, that might damage the long-term ability to expand the Islamist powerbase in the West or provoke a lash back against Muslims
  • Establishing financial networks to fund the work of conversion of the West, including the support of full-time administrators and workers
  • Conducting surveillance, obtaining data, and establishing collection and data storage capabilities
  • Putting into place a watchdog system for monitoring Western media to warn Muslims of “international plots fomented against them”
  • Cultivating an Islamist intellectual community, including the establishment of think-tanks and advocacy groups, and publishing “academic” studies, to legitimize Islamist positions and to chronicle the history of Islamist movements
  • Developing a comprehensive 100-year plan to advance Islamist ideology throughout the world
  • Balancing international objectives with local flexibility
  • Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations dedicated to Islamist ideals so that contact with the movement for Muslims in the West is constant
  • Involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratically-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations and labor unions
  • Instrumentally using existing Western institutions until they can be converted and put into service of Islam
  • Drafting Islamic constitutions, laws and policies for eventual implementation
  • Avoiding conflict within the Islamist movements on all levels, including the development of processes for conflict resolution
  • Instituting alliances with Western “progressive” organizations that share similar goals
  • Creating autonomous “security forces” to protect Muslims in the West
  • Inflaming violence and keeping Muslims living in the West “in a jihad frame of mind”
  • Supporting jihad movements across the Muslim world through preaching, propaganda, personnel, funding, and technical and operational support
  • Making the Palestinian cause a global wedge issue for Muslims
  • Adopting the total liberation of Palestine from Israel and the creation of an Islamic state as a keystone in the plan for global Islamic domination
  • Instigating a constant campaign to incite hatred by Muslims against Jews and rejecting any discussions of conciliation or coexistence with them
  • Actively creating jihad terror cells within Palestine
  • Linking the terrorist activities in Palestine with the global terror movement
  • Collecting sufficient funds to indefinitely perpetuate and support jihad around the world

An international scholar of Islamist movements, Reuven Paz, reflected on The Project in its historical context:

The Project was drafted by the Muslim Brotherhood as part of its rechartering process in 1982, a time that marks an upswing in its organizational expansion internationally, as well as a turning point in the alternating periods of repression and toleration by the Egyptian government. In 1952, the organization played a critical support role to the Free Officers Movement led by Gamal Abdul Nasser, which overthrew King Faruq, but quickly fell out of favor with the new revolutionary regime because of Nasser’s refusal to follow the Muslim Brotherhood’s call to institute an ideologically committed Islamic state. At various times since the July Revolution in 1952, the Brotherhood has regularly been banned and its leaders killed and imprisoned by Egyptian authorities.

 Since its formation, the Muslim Brotherhood has advocated the use of terrorism as a means of advancing its agenda of global Islamic domination. But as the largest radical movement in the Islamic world, it has attracted many leading Islamist intellectuals. Among the group of Muslim Brotherhood intellectuals is Youssef Qaradawi, an Egyptian-born, Qatar-based Islamist cleric.

Qaradawi’s publication, Priorities of the Islamic Movement in the Coming Phase, published in 1990, and The Project, which predates Qaradawi’s Priorities by eight years are strikingly similar.

It is speculated that The Project was either used by Qaradawi as a template for his own work, or that he had a hand in its drafting in 1982. By sheer coincidence, Qaradawi was the fourth largest shareholder in the Al-Taqwa Bank of Lugano, the director of which, Youssef Nada, was the individual in whose possession The Project was found.

 If the experience over the last thirty years seen in Europe and the U.S. is any indication, the “Islamic researchers” who drafted The Project must be pleased. To see their long-term plan to conquer the West and see the Green flag of Islam raised over its citizens realized so rapidly, efficiently and completely must be satisfying . If Islamists are equally successful in the years to come, Westerners ought to enjoy their personal and political freedoms while they last.

5 out of 535 Take Their Jobs Seriously

 Muslim Brotherhood’s stated goal for America:

A strategy paper for the Muslim Brotherhood, often referred to as the Ikhwan in Arabic, found in the Virginia home of an unindicted conspirator, describes the group’s U.S. goals, referred to as a “civilization-jihadist process.”

“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 is made victorious over all other religions,” it states. This process requires a “mastery of the art of ‘coalitions,’ the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.'”

Only 5 stand against evil:

WASHINGTON – On June 13, amongst rising concerns that members of the Muslim Brotherhood may have infiltrated the highest levels of the U.S. government, Reps. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., Trent Franks, R-Ariz., Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, Thomas Rooney, R-Fla., and Lynn Westmoreland, R-Ga., sent letters to the various inspectors general, acting inspectors general or deputy inspector general of the U.S. Department of State, Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense and Department of Justice, raising serious questions about their department’s policies and activities, which appear to be influenced by individuals and organizations associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.

In their letter to Ambassador Howard Geisel, Deputy Inspector General, Department of State, they state, “Given that the U.S. government has established in federal court that the Muslim Brotherhood’s mission in the United States is ‘destroying the Western civilization from within’ – a practice the Muslim Brothers call ‘civilization jihad’ – we believe that apparent involvement of those with such ties raises serious security concerns that warrant your urgent attention.”

The letter goes on to say, “The State Department and, in several cases, the specific direction of the Secretary of state, have taken actions recently that have been enormously favorable to the Muslim Brotherhood and its interests.”

They specifically cite Secretary Hillary Clinton’s personal intervention that allowed prominent Muslim Brotherhood leader Tariq Ramadan to enter the United States, overturning a policy of a previous administration that precluded him from entering and pointed out, “Mr. Ramadan has reportedly used the visits thus made possible to engage in what the Brotherhood calls ‘civilization jihad’ in the United States: proselytization, recruitment, indoctrination, fundraising, and other forms of promotion of the totalitarian, supremacist Islamic doctrine known as shariah.”

Also included in their concerns was Clinton’s “waiver of congressional restrictions on aid to the Palestinian Authority, which now has a so-called ‘unity government’ that includes Hamas, a designated terrorist organization and the Palestinian franchise of the Muslim Brotherhood. This cleared the way for a transfer of $170 million in U.S. foreign aid to terrorist organization, Hamas, and its partner, Fatah.”

In their letter to Department of Homeland Security Acting Inspector General Charles Edwards, they raised concerns about the advisory roles of three individuals, Dalia Mogahed, Mohamed Elibiary and Mohamed Magid, who have extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist organizations and causes.

They wrote, “The problematic nature of this arrangement is evident from, for example, the use of Imam Magid by the Department of Homeland Security – among other federal agencies – as a liaison with the Muslim-American community insofar as he is the president of the largest Muslim Brotherhood front in America, the Islamic Society of North America (lSNA). In this regard, we note that the ‘Supreme Guide’ of the international Muslim Brotherhood, Muhammad Badie, in September 20I0 openly called for jihad by all ‘the Arab and Muslim peoples” against the United States.”

It goes on to state, “Examples of other aspects of the DepaIrment’s activities that suggest an undue, and potentially dangerous, influence exercised by such individuals within DHS or other parts of the federal government include: A DHS ‘Lexicon’ that obscures, rather than clarifies, the threat we face from jihadism. Its approved words effectively equate those perpetrating this threat with ones said to arise from ‘Christian patriots,’ ‘Constitutionalists,’ and ‘militia extremists.’”

The letters revealed numerous incidents in which departmental policy decisions were based on the influencing directives of the Muslim Brotherhood and/or other radical Islamist organizations.

On July 13, Bachmann responded personally to concerns raised in a letter from Rep. Keith Ellison, D- Minn., one of two Muslim members of Congress.

Bachmann referred to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on Feb. 10, 2011, in which he stated “Brotherhood operatives” within the U.S. government may have directly influenced the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood.

She said, “Director Clapper’s statement was in response to a question by Rep. Sue Myrick about information entered into evidence during the Holy Land Foundation trial – the largest terrorism finance trial in American history – that specifically identified these U.S.-based Muslim Brotherhood front organizations and their commitment to a published agenda to ‘destroying Western Civilization from within.’”

Ellison claimed their letter to the Department of State indicated: “The mother, brother and deceased father of Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood, and that she, too, by extension, may be working on the organization’s behalf.”

Bachmann countered his statement with, “Not once in the letter to the Inspector General of the Department of State, as you summarize, was it stated that ‘by extension, (Ms. Abedin), may be working on the organization’s behalf.’ In fact, what we wrote was that: … the Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin, has three family members – her late father, her mother and her brother – connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations. Her position provides her with routine access to the Secretary and to policy-making.”

Bachmann stated, “Given the reasonable assumption that Ms. Abedin has a high-level security clearance, as a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence I am particularly interested in exactly how, given what we know from the international media about Ms. Abedin’s documented family connections with the extremist Muslim Brotherhood, she was able to avoid being disqualified for a security clearance. If these known and documented family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood would not disqualify someone for a security clearance, what specifically is the standard to be disqualified on foreign influence grounds?”

While Bachmann has taken heat from more than a few members of Congress, including Sen. John McCain over the letters, she has stood her ground.

And, on July 18, Rep. Michele Bachmannn, R-Minn., issued the following statement: “The letters my colleagues and I sent on June 13 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 – and the follow up letter I wrote to Rep. Ellison on July 13 – are unfortunately being distorted.

“I encourage everyone, including media outlets, to read them in their entirety. The intention of the letters was to outline the serious national security concerns I had and ask for answers to questions regarding the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical group’s access to top Obama administration officials.

“Most recently, the State Department shockingly decided to give Hani Nour Eldin, a member of an Egyptian designated terrorist group, a visa to not only enter the country in violation of the federal laws prohibiting material support for terrorism, but to be granted a meeting inside the White House with National Security Council officials.

“The terror group member used the opportunity of his White House visit to call for the release of the imprisoned leader of his organization, the ‘Blind Sheikh,’ Omar Abdel Rahman, who is currently serving a life sentence for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and later planned terror plots inside the U.S.

“This is just the latest example of the dangerous national security decisions made by the Obama administration. I will not be silent as this administration appeases our enemies instead of telling the truth about the threats our country faces.”

Of course, those who publicly criticize & berate Baachmann and her collegues, will do what they do with bills that they vote on. Not read the documents and spew nonsense in replace of the facts.
