A band of brothers, Muslim Brotherhood style brothers stood side by side at a podium last week in Washington D.C. and announced a new coalition of Islamic organizations called the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). The umbrella organization is seeking to promote the civil rights and goals of their members and to have a bigger impact in American politics.
The new U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations includes the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Legal Fund of America, the Muslim American Society, American Muslims for Palestine, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Muslim Alliance in North America, the Muslim Ummah of North America, and The Mosque Cares.
According to the Global Muslim Brotherhood Watch:
one of the common tactics of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood is to construct coalitions of its own front organizations as well as inter-related groups and individuals, giving the appearance that the Brotherhood has more broad-based support than it actually enjoys. The new US Council of Muslim Organizations is just the latest in a long series of such “umbrella groups” formed by the US Muslim Brotherhood.
That sounds like a plot from The Little Rascals with Spanky and Our Gang. The club members from the “He-Man Woman Haters Club” needed a new ball park but the mean ol’ mayor and the town council won’t approve of one so the gang sets up a new club across the street, then one down the street, and more around the corner. When they go back to see the mayor and the town council the gang says, “Here look, we have ten other clubs that want a new ball park too!” The mayor and the town council are impressed. Scratching their heads, they never knew that so many clubs existed. It’s the same way with all these Muslim Brotherhood front groups.
The Muslim Brotherhood needs to further their agenda by inflating their numbers. What better way to do that than to announce that they’re going to take a census of the Muslim community? And at the same time they plan on getting a consensus of Muslims living in the U.S.A. to get a better understanding of what kind of Jihad your everyday typical Muslim American Religion of Peace Muslim Brotherhood supporting Jihadist wants. They expect that to take up to two years. That way they can better define their demands using their new census numbers and consensus propaganda.
According to speakers at the announcement, other areas of focus for the USCMO coalition include making sure that Muslims are politically engaged in the upcoming elections as well as in U.S. foreign and domestic policy. Combating “Islamaphobia” and warding off the evils of bigotry are also topics of concern.
Nihad Awad, executive director CAIR, said, “This is the dream of every American Muslim, to unify the approach, agenda and vision of the Muslim community.”
Of course, the Muslim Brotherhood has other dreams. The U.S. chapter of Muslim Brotherhood was started by activists involved with the Muslim Students Association (MSA) in the early 1960s. Those dear kind-hearted peace-loving students wanted to establish and maintain Islamic societies on college campuses. Later, they suddenly decided that they were more interested in seeking how to integrate and institutionalize Islam and Islamic culture into American life. What’s good enough for them, must be good enough for us. So much for the great American melting pot.
The idea of institutionalize Islam and Islamic culture into American life didn’t come about by accident. It’s kind of a thing for the Muslim Brotherhood. They got their start in post WWI Egypt, after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. While pining for the good old days, a school teacher Hassan al-Banna and some friends founded the Muslim Brotherhood. Banna said, “It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”
And that pretty much sums up the Muslim Brotherhood today. The Muslim Brotherhood would like nothing more than to establish an Islamic caliphate, or kingdom here on earth with the idea of making Islamic Law (Shari’a) the law of the land. Not content with just Muslim countries, they plan to dismantle non-Islamic governments wherever they currently exist, including, of course, the United States. So far they have spread their influence to more than 70 countries.
Their efforts aren’t entirely appreciated. According to DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
In July 2007, seven key leaders of an Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) went on trial for charges that they had: (a) provided “material support and resources” to a foreign terrorist organization (namely Hamas); (b) engaged in money laundering; and (c) breached the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which prohibits transactions that threaten American national security. Along with the seven named defendants, the U.S. government released a list of approximately 300 “unindicted co-conspirators” and “joint venturers.” During the course of the HLF trial, many incriminating documents were entered into evidence. Perhaps the most significant of these was “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” by the Muslim Brotherhood operative Mohamed Akram. Federal investigators found Akram’s memo in the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the DarAl-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, during a 2004 search. Elbarasse was a member of the Palestine Committee, which the Muslim Brotherhood had created to support Hamas in the United States.
Akram was well aware that in the U.S., it would be extremely difficult to promote Islam by means of terror attacks. Thus the “grand jihad” that he and his Brotherhood comrades envisioned was not a violent one involving bombings and shootings, but rather a stealth (or“soft”) jihad aiming to impose Islamic law (Sharia) over every region of the earth by incremental, non-confrontational means, such as working to “expand the observant Muslim base”; to “unif[y] and direc[t] Muslims’ efforts”; and to “present Islam as a civilization alternative.” At its heart, Akram’s document details a plan to conquer and Islamize the United States – not as an ultimate objective, but merely as a stepping stone toward the larger goal of one day creating “the global Islamic state.”
The Muslim Brotherhood is defined as a terrorist organization in several countries. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are two of the latest countries to list them as a terrorist organization, having declared them as such earlier this month. The Russians have had them labeled as a terrorist organization for a while now because they didn’t like them messing around with in the Caucasus.
The United States is much more forgiving. Embracing a “Can’t We All Just Get Along” strategy on both domestic and foreign policy, a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood attended a meeting recently at the White House with both President Obama and Vice-President Joe Biden. It isn’t known yet if he stayed the night in the Lincoln bedroom.
It is said that Obama is still “deeply concerned” about Muslim Brotherhood leading member Mohamed Morsi’s removal as Egypt’s president just a year after “winning” the presidential election in Egypt post-Arab spring. Obama regularly sends Morsi flowers and chocolate to his prison cell where he is awaiting trial.
Despite USCMO’s seemingly innocent new plans of speaking with a “representative voice” for Americana Muslims and claims of “broad inclusion,” Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) has a different take on it. He sees them trying “to deceive Americans as an innocent ‘Muslim coalition.'” He thinks that the lauch of the USCMO coalition is a sign that Islamists are “feeling the heat.”
Steve Emerson executive director of The Investigative Project on Terrorism had this juicy tidbit:
On the USCMO’s website, the groups promises that, “When we speak with one clear, communal voice, our advice can help true the direction of American society toward justice. Our well-deliberated and sincerely expressed words for the benefit of the nation can fortify attitudes that propagate harmony between people and institutionalize policies that spread prosperity to all.”
I suppose that the help that the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations is offering to “true the direction of American society towards justice” is institutional Islam, Islamic culture, and Shari’a.
“When we speak with one clear, communal voice, “We are the Borg. You be will assimilated. Resistance is futile. “
I’ve got a few words for you my Muslim Brotherhood friends. We will not comply. End transmission.
