Stakelbeck on Terror: The Coming Caliphate — “It’s Time to Start Thinking Outside the Box About What’s Coming”
“On this week’s edition of the Stakelbeck on Terror show, CBN News examines the growing strength of global jihad and the possibility of a new Islamic caliphate.
We start by exploring the Obama administration’s recent statements that al Qaeda is nearing defeat. While al Qaeda may be weakening, other more dangerous threats to America’s national security are strengthening — namely Iran, Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood. See why the U.S. should be concerned.
CBN News also heads to Istanbul, Turkey for a report on how the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ has laid the groundwork for a re-established Islamic super state known as the caliphate.
We then analyze how Iran is vying to lead the new caliphate.
Also watch as Jeremy Issacharoff, a leading Iran expert in Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, discussed the Iranian regime’s alarming progress in developing nuclear weapons.” Watch Full Episode Here.
Why Iran’s Top Leaders Believe That the End of Days Has Come – “Why would Iran authorize a major terrorist operation on American soil? Skeptics say the much-discussed ‘foiled’ Iranian plot makes no sense. We will know soon enough if the Feds have sufficient evidence related to this specific plot. But Iranian leaders may, in fact, have a motive to accelerate direct attacks on the U.S.: Shia Islamic eschatology, or ‘End Times’ theology. Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are convinced that the End of Days has come. They believe the Shia messiah known as the ‘Twelfth Imam’ or the ‘Mahdi’ will appear soon to establish a global Islamic kingdom known as the caliphate. What’s more, they believe the way to hasten the coming of the Twelfth Imam is to annihilate Israel …” Read more.
Ayatollah Khamenei Calls for the World’s Islamic Nations to Form an International Power-Bloc - The First Step in the Fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39? – “… this past Sunday, the Ayatollah called for the formation of an ‘international Islamic power-bloc’ of all Muslims uniting against the non-Muslim world (specifically, ‘the West, the United States, and Zionism, which are weaker than ever before’). According to the Ayatollah, such a power-bloc ‘can change the destiny of the Islamic Ummah (nation),’ and herald ‘a bright future accompanied with dignity and progress.’ It really doesn’t matter whether we label the Ayatollah’s call a ‘Revived Caliphate’ or an ‘international Islamic power-bloc,’ the point is that a Shia leader is calling for the uniting of all Muslims against the Infidels.” Read more.
Notice very carefully the title that the Iranian President bestows upon the awaited “perfect human being” of Islam, called “Imam al-Mahdi.” Ahmadinejad declares this individual to be “the Ultimate Savior of mankind” and one whom all societies of the world would be wise to follow. According to true Biblical Scripture, however, God declares in Isaiah 43:11 that “I am the Lord, and apart from me there is no savior.“ In the eyes of God, anyone who is proclaimed to be — or proclaims himself to be — the “Savior of mankind” would not only be speaking “great words against the Most High” by calling God a liar in denying Christ alone as Savior, but would also therefore be claiming to be God by attributing to himself a title that only God can hold:
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, “Let no one deceive you by any means; for [that Day will not come] unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
Daniel 11:38-39, “But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge [and] increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.”
Daniel 11:37-38 reveals that a Last Days ‘Antichrist’ figure will not regard “the God of his fathers” but will instead honor “a god whom his fathers knew not.” Many Arabs and Muslims are descendants of Ishmael, whose father was Abraham. To not regard “the God of his fathers” means, in my opinion, that this Last Days ‘Antichrist’ figure will not regard YHWH the true God of Abraham (and Ishmael, whom God took care of after he and Hagar were sent away), but will instead honor a god whom they never knew, one that is forced upon the inhabitants of all nations surrounding Israel in the eschaton, and in increasing measure upon the world, whom they refer to as ‘Allah’ …
By Joel C. Rosenberg – “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is not a world leader worthy of the world stage. He is the evil leader of an Iranian death cult. A new U.N. report indicates that he is making progress in building nuclear weapons. He has predicted the arrival of the Twelfth Imam and called for wiping Israel ‘off the map.’ He aspires to be a mass murderer beyond the scale of history’s great dictators. He deserves to be in prison, or an insane asylum. His speech on Thursday before the United Nations General Assembly was further proof, if any more were needed.
Did you see Ahmadinejad’s apocalyptic address, or read the full text? You should. It’s instructive. Unfortunately, you won’t find Ahmadinejad’s full speech reprinted in the major newspapers. It was pitifully covered by the mainstream media. It should have been carefully analyzed.
Ahmadinejad isn’t hiding what he believes. He denied the Holocaust. He blasted the U.S. for bringing Osama bin Laden to justice. He blamed the terrorist attacks of 9/11 on the U.S. government. He insisted that his so-called messiah known as ‘Imam al-Mahdi’ or the Twelfth Imam is coming soon. He insisted that Jesus Christ will come with the Mahdi to take over the world. He called for ‘the shared and collective management of the world.’
Consider this excerpt:
This movement is certainly on its rightful path of creation, ensuring a promising future for humanity. A future that will be built when humanity initiates to [tread] the path of the divine prophets and the righteous under the leadership of Imam al-Mahdi, the Ultimate Savior of mankind and the inheritor to all divine messengers and leaders and to the pure generation of our great Prophet. The creation of a supreme and ideal society with the arrival of a perfect human being who is a true and sincere lover of all human beings, is the guaranteed promise of Allah. He will come alongside with Jesus Christ to lead the freedom and justice lovers to eradicate tyranny and discrimination, and promote knowledge, peace, justice, freedom and love across the world. He will present to every single individual all the beauties of the world and all good things which bring happiness for humankind.
Though most world leaders do not appear to understand what Ahmadinejad is really saying, students of Shia Islamic eschatology, or end-times theology, do. The Iranian leader believes the end of the world as we have known it is increasingly close at hand. He believes the time for establishing an Islamic caliphate, or global government ruled by the Mahdi, is rapidly approaching. What’s more, he believes that the way to hasten the coming of the Twelfth Imam is to acquire nuclear weapons and use them to annihilate the United States, which he calls the ‘Great Satan,’ and Israel, which he calls the ‘Little Satan.’
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu understands what Ahmadinejad means. So do some of his top military advisers. That’s why they believe Iran is in the eye of a gathering storm in the Middle East, and the chance of a major war is growing.” Read more.
Significant numbers of respondents in ‘moderate’ Islamic countries adhere to many not-so-moderate views …
By Bernardo Cervellera – “Radical Islam has always been present in Islam, but it has emerged in recent decades thanks to the Muslim Brotherhood (founded in Egypt in 1928) and with the support from the Saudi Wahhabi ideology. It supposes a literalist interpretation of Islam and a return to the origins of Islam – that of Mohammed and the four caliphs – as a way to reaffirm the dignity of the Muslim communities in the world.
Their enemies are the corrupt Islamic governments (almost all) the atheist and colonial West, the State of Israel, and finally Christians, often banded together with the West, although the Islamists often target the Christian communities who were present in the Middle East long before Muhammad.
The choice of violence and terrorism seen as a religious act in praise of Allah that purifies the world by destroying the enemies of Islam is linked to the Islamic world.
What weight does this interpretation of Islam have?
A survey by the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion published by AsiaNews  March 4, 2009, showed that at least 30% of respondents in several Muslim countries – Egypt, Palestine, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Jordan and Morocco – supported the use of bombs and murder to achieve political and religious purposes.
A large majority supported the goal of al Qaeda to ‘push the U.S. to remove its bases and its military forces from all Islamic countries’. These include 87% of Egyptians, 64% of Indonesians, 60% of Pakistanis.
Other aims of al Qaeda also received wide support. Among these, ‘the strict application of sharia law in all Islamic countries and the unification of all Islamic countries into a single Islamic state or Caliphate’ received the support of 65% of Egyptians and 48% of Indonesians, 76% Pakistanis and Moroccans. ‘Keeping Western values out of Islamic countries’, another of the organization’s goals gained the support of 88% in Egypt, 76% in Indonesia, 60% in Pakistan and by 64% in Morocco.” Read more.
Turkish PM Greeted by Cheering Crowds in Cairo, Banners Proclaiming ‘Egypt And Turkey Will Together Become An Islamic Caliphate’
Globes – “Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan continued to make threats against Israel on his arrival in Cairo last night, resulting in a rapturous reception by the crowds. He was surrounded by Egyptian supporters after disembarking from his plane at the airport.
Using a prepared amplifier system, Erdoğan spoke to the crowd in Arabic, saying, ‘Salaam aleikum, Egypt and Turkey are one. Peace to the Egyptian people.’
Erdoğan was received by Egypt’s acting Prime Minister Essam Sharaf and his wife.
The welcoming crowd included many members of the Muslim Brotherhood, which supports Hamas. Supporters along the road into Cairo carried Erdoğan’s picture and shouted, ‘Egypt and Turkey will together become an Islamic Caliphate’, and ‘Erdoğan, who angers Israel will liberate Palestine like Saladin.’” Read more.
Egypt’s Islamists warn Erdogan: Don’t seek Middle East domination – “Egypt’s most powerful Islamist group warned Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday that his country should not seek to dominate the Middle East despite his enthusiastic welcome at the start of a regional tour. After his widely praised call for democracy in the Arab world, Erdogan was given a more reserved reception by officials of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose old guard do not share the admiration of the group’s younger generation for the Turkish leader.” Read more.
By Shari Goodman – “It was only a short ten years ago that we in America suffered the worst terror attack upon our soil. Nineteen Islamists murdered 3000 Americans that day. The murderers were following Quranic verse (2:191-193) ‘And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution (of Muslims) is worse than slaughter (of non-believers)….but if desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.’ This verse is just one of over a hundred verses that command Allah’s followers to wage war upon the unbelievers.
Since 9/11 there have been over 17,000 Islamic terrorist attacks worldwide with over 30 attacks here at home. While the fear of terrorism continues there is another stealth civilizational jihad that is taking place under our radar that is much more insidious and perhaps far more dangerous. The Muslim Brotherhood under the guise of dozens of Islamic civil rights groups have infiltrated all of our major institutions from education, textbooks, law enforcement, our judicial system, the media, the military, Homeland Security, the State Department, Congress, and even the White House. Their goal is to transform our Constitutional Republic to a Sharia compliant Caliphate as stated in a 1991 strategy paper for the Brotherhood found in the Virginia home of an un-indicted co-conspirator and presented as evidence during the Holy Land Foundation trial, the largest terror-funding case in U.S. history.
‘The Ikhwan (another word for Brotherhood) 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.’
A decade later they have succeeded far beyond most Americans’ imagination. In Dearborn, Michigan and Philadelphia Americans have been arrested for preaching the gospel on public sidewalks because it offends Muslim sensibilities. In Minneapolis, Somali taxi drivers refuse to transport anyone with a dog or alcohol because it too offends their Muslim sensibilities. Footbaths and prayer rooms have been installed at numerous American universities and airports to accommodate an increasing Muslim population. In Toronto, regular Islamic prayer led by an Imam is permitted within a public school and the cities of San Diego, Dallas, Dearborn, and New York have instituted recess time during the school day for Islamic prayer.
Particularly troubling are the 50 appellate court cases in 23 states which involved a conflict between Sharia Law and our American state laws that were adjudicated in favor of Sharia. Muslim women and children involved in these cases were seeking equal protection under our laws, but were denied their rights when Sharia was applied.” Read more.
By Soeren Kern – “The municipality of Salt, a town near Barcelona where Muslim immigrants now make up 40% of the population, has approved a one-year ban on the construction of new mosques. It is the first ban of its kind in Spain.
The moratorium follows public outrage over plans to build a massive Salafi mosque that is being financed by Saudi Arabia. Salafism is a branch of revivalist Islam that calls for restoring past Muslim glory by forcibly re-establishing an Islamic empire (Caliphate) across the Middle East, North Africa and parts of Europe such as Spain, which Salafists view as a Muslim state that must be reconquered for Islam.
Much of Spain was ruled by Muslim conquerors from 711 and 1492; Salafists believe that the territories the Muslims lost during the Spanish Reconquista still belong to them, and that they have a right to return and establish their rule there – a belief based on the Islamic precept that territories once occupied by Muslims must forever remain under Muslim domination.
Sacrificing common sense on the altar of multiculturalism, the previous Socialist government in Salt secretly gave permission to the Salafi Muslims to build the mega-mosque, which, with four stories comprising 1,000 square meters (11,000 square feet) accompanied by towering minarets, would be the largest Salafi mosque in Europe.
The secret deal was only discovered after the Socialists were ejected from power in May 2011. Angry natives began pressuring the new town council – now ruled by the center-right Convergència i Unió (CiU) party – to prevent the mosque from being built. On August 24, the council approved the one-year ban on the building of new mosques in order to provide ‘some time for reflection.’
The Salafi mega-mosque may still be built, however, because the construction permit was issued before the non-retroactive moratorium took effect. The building permit, which is valid for a period of six months, expires at the end of September 2011.” Read more.
Flashback: Islam Lays Seige To Spain: Arson – Murder – Rape – Pillage – Riots – City Council and Mayor Cower – “The town of Salt, Spain has been besieged by riots, burnings, murder, rape and pillage, at the hands of hundreds of Morroccan Muslim immigrants. As you will see if you watch the video, the Spanish women of Salt cannot go out of their homes after 8:00 p.m., for fear of becoming rape victims. As one woman in the video puts it succinctly, they are ‘scared sh**less’.” Read more.
Seems that every passing day there is an ever increasing wave of support for the reestablishment of the Islamic Caliphate. Here is an article from Pakistan on July 3rd, 2011 that instead of being from the perspective of one looking in, it is rather from the perspective of one looking out …
By Syed Shariq – “… The extent of the malaise in the Muslim world requires a comprehensive change, not just a change of faces. Replacing Ben Ali in Tunisia or Mubarak in Egypt with those who worked with, supported, or even legitimised their regimes is no solution. Democracy is not the solution either. Pakistan and Sudan are democracies after all, and are no better than an Egypt or Tunisia. What is required is a comprehensive change at the level of the regime and system.
This is what the people want. The emphatic slogan of the uprisings was unequivocal: The people want the downfall of the regime; not the President, but the entire regime. This is, of course, the type of change Western governments do not want. They have been working hard to hijack the uprisings and to get away with mere cosmetic changes. Undoubtedly, their role in the uprisings has been intrusive, exploitative and hypocritical. In this regard, the West continues to doublespeak.
The propaganda is also persistent. If one were to go by the coverage of the mainstream media or the pronouncements of Western leaders, one would think that people of the Middle East and North Africa have finally seen the ‘light’ of the Western way of life, and are calling for liberal democracy. This could not be further from the truth. Being subject to decades of Western imperialism, Muslims have an intimate appreciation of what Western ideology has to offer, and they reject it outright. Instead, keeping the historical context in mind, it is clear to any impartial observer that it is the Islamic revival that gathers steam and the Muslims want change on the basis of Islam. The proof of this has been furnished elsewhere. And so they should. It is not the European model of the secular nation-state that represents the values, beliefs and history of the Muslim world; it is the Islamic model of the Caliphate.
The Caliphate, far from being a threat to the world that some would have us believe, would be a source of progress. For one, it will fill the political and leadership vacuum in the Muslim world and, thereby, would be a source of stability, and, in turn, progress and prosperity. A stable Muslim world means a much more stable and peaceful world. Two, the Caliphate would offer a new intellectual and political leadership to rival, and break USA’s monopoly as the sole superpower, whose foreign policy has wreaked much havoc on the world. Surely, advocates of liberalism cannot argue against competition?
Many in the West will disagree with our arguments…” Read more.
Are we about to soon witness one possible fulfillment of this prophecy come to pass? …
“On the 90th anniversary of the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the vast Islamic Caliphate regime which fell in 1921 after WWI, thousands of members of the Radical Islamist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir rallied on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. They called for Muslims to unite and embrace the Caliphate rulership once more.
The rally took place in early July. Demonstrators flew banners bearing inscriptions such as ‘The Ummah (Muslims) Want Muslim Caliphates.’ A giant banner was put up in the Al Aksa mosque courtyard on the Temple Mount. Other banners said ‘No to Democracy, Yes to Caliphates’. The crowd controller, using a microphone, soon had the crowd chanting over and over, ‘O Muslim armies, awaken to help Muslims.’
The Hizb ut-Tahrir (‘Party of Liberation’) website calls for the Muslim armies to forcefully lift the Gaza IDF naval blockade with military action, making it serve ‘as a tight noose’ around Israel.
Caliphates were a totalitarian system of Muslim government established by Mohammed, who made himself the first Caliph, reigning until 632 C.E. The Caliph was a religious and political leader, who made the Koran’s prescriptions, now developed into the legal body known as Sharia law, the law of the land. The Ottoman Empire embraced the idea of a caliphate, and was governed this way until its dissolution.” Read more.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4, “Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him … that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.”
Zechariah 5:5-11, “Then the angel who was speaking with me went out and said to me, ‘Lift up now your eyes and see what this is going forth.’ I said, ‘What is it?’ And he said, ‘This is the ephah going forth.’ Again he said, ‘This is their appearance in all the land (and behold, a lead cover was lifted up); and this is a woman sitting inside the ephah.’ Then he said, ‘This is Wickedness!’ And he threw her down into the middle of the ephah and cast the lead weight on its opening. Then I lifted up my eyes and looked, and there two women were coming out with the wind in their wings; and they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heavens. I said to the angel who was speaking with me, ‘Where are they taking the ephah?’ Then he said to me, ‘To build a temple for her in the land of Shinar; and when it is prepared, she will be set there on her own pedestal.’”

Islamist Propaganda Video Declares ‘The Return of the Khilafah … Is Now A Matter of Time’ – “The media ignores the Islamic fundamentalist growth and how it is already the majority thinking in many Muslim countries and on the verge of also being the majority in the whole of the Muslim world. In this propaganda video the evidence is apparent that Islam is a massive force that we are ignoring at our own peril. That the view we are dealing with a tiny minority of extremists is grossly perverse and self delusional.” Source.
1. The head of the Iranian regime is not the president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, but rather the Supreme Leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
2. The Iranian regime, according to its 1989 constitution, is dedicated to jihad to spread the Ayatollah Khomeini’s revolution, to re-establish the Caliphate, and impose Islamic law (sharia) globally. These are precisely the same objectives pursued by terrorist groups like al-Qaeda, HAMAS, and Hezbollah—which may explain why they have all been linked together with Iran in operational relationships for so many decades.
3. The primary mission of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) is to keep the regime in power. In an especially visible way since the popular uprising after the fraudulent 2009 presidential elections, the IRGC and its subordinate Bassij units have used sheer brutality and terror to suppress the democratic aspirations of the Iranian people.
4. The Ayatollah Khomeini ordered the IRGC to acquire deliverable nuclear weapons in the mid-1980s. Every Iranian president—including those touted as ‘moderate’—has supported the acquisition of nuclear weapons, but the program has accelerated markedly under the last two presidents: Khatami and Ahmadinejad.
5. By sheer numbers, Iran is the number two state killer of its own citizens in the world, second only to China, a country with 20 times the size of its population. Per capita, Iran may be the biggest killer.
6. The Iranian regime has supported the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood in a vocal way ever since the uprising began there in early 2011. The Muslim Brotherhood, a worldwide jihadist organization with a pervasive presence in the U.S. government, intelligence community, and society as a whole, has reached out to the Iranian regime in return and openly expressed interest in forging close ties with it. The Obama administration recently announced that it is expanding its long-standing ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
7. Current president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad believes that the Shi’a messianic figure (the Mahdi, or Twelfth Imam), who allegedly disappeared down a well 1,000 years ago—is helping guide his government and manage world affairs. He has publicly expressed his belief that apocalyptic violence can hasten the return of this figure.
8. In spite of sanctions, Iran is far from isolated. It is actively involved with many countries, diplomatically and economically, buying influence at a growing pace. This includes the viscerally anti-American regime of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez and a growing list of other countries in America’s backyard of South and Central America. Iran also has been developing relations with countries like Eritrea, Sudan, Algeria, Afghanistan, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Qatar, and recently Israel’s neighbor Jordan.
9. “Iran has methodically cultivated a network of sponsored terrorist surrogates capable of conducting effective plausibly deniable attacks against Israel and the United States.” This includes a network of terror proxies, such as Hezbollah, which has an extensive presence across Latin America, especially in Venezuela, and also in Mexico. Hezbollah operates at least a dozen cellswithin the U.S. as well.
10. The Havlish case (Havlish et al vs Osama bin Laden, Iran, et al.), filed in New York in May 2011, presented compelling evidence that the Iranian regime provided direct and material assistance to al-Qaeda for the 9/11 attacks.
Oh, don’t worry friends, the United States should go ahead and sell all the state-of-the-art military equipment that a post-Mubarak Egypt wants. Obama is the Commander-in-Chief, and he knows what he’s doing. It doesn’t really matter much that the Muslim Brotherhood will likely be playing a pivotal leadership role in a ‘new-and-improved’ Egypt later this year. I mean, these are the kind of people that take care of each other. They’re harmless, peace-loving folks. They even condemned the killing of Osama bin Laden. If that’s not pro-life, I don’t know what is. And they only think they own the world, so it’s not like they really do or anything, or that they’ll suddenly attack the Jewish state without a just cause. They just simply want to end the peace treaty with Israel. No biggie. And it isn’t as if they’ll be imposing Sharia Law upon the people of Egypt overnight, that’ll be done over time in phases. And as for all that talk about the Caliphate and a global Islamic state, hey come on. That won’t be established today, it can wait till tomorrow. I mean, really, the Muslim Brotherhood is just a peaceful bunch of guys. It doesn’t make a difference that they’ve voiced support for Iran’s nuclear ambitions, or defended Hitler and nuclear terror, because their official motto says nothing about all that stuff. Instead, ‘Allah is our objective, the Prophet is our leader, the Koran is our law, Jihad is our way, and dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu akbar!’ …
“While everyone in Washington was concentrating on the debt crisis this week, the Obama administration attempted to slip through a questionable arms deal that requires serious scrutiny. Though it got little attention, the Defense Department officially notified Congress on Friday that it was authorizing the sale of 125 M1A1 tanks to Egypt as well as other weapons, equipment, parts, training and logistical support. While most of the military sales to Egypt have sailed through without objection in the more than 30 years since it signed a peace deal with Israel, this is the first such sale since the fall of the Mubarak regime earlier this year. Which is exactly why the sale ought to be held up until the unsettled situation in the most populous country in the Arab world is better understood.
Congress has 30 days to register its formal objections to the proposed sale. That it should do so is imperative. The reasons for a delay are not complicated.
In the wake of Mubarak’s fall from power, the Egyptian military seems to have retained a firm grip on power. But the army seems intent on sharing power with a resurgent Muslim Brotherhood movement that threatens the foundation of the relationship between the United States and Egypt. Since the 1979 Camp David Accords, the Egyptian military has gotten all the high-tech and expensive equipment it wanted so long as it was clear their new toys would not be used to threaten or attack Israel. But as Egypt lurches toward the election of a new government that will probably be made up of Islamist elements, that peace is in jeopardy.” Read more.
Muslim Brotherhood Elder: ‘Jerusalem Belongs to Us, and the Whole World Belongs to Us … the Caliphate Will Return’
The Muslim Brotherhood has already expressed their wish to see Islamic Sharia Law implemented in phases in Egypt, and have already expressed their desire to establish a global Islamic state. But, well, given the fact that the Obama Administration has already officially opened formal contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood, we must somehow be misunderstanding (again) what yet another leader within the organization is truly saying. After all, Obama’s National Intelligence director James Clapper called them ‘a secular organization’ …
Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Elder, Sheik Safwat Hegazy – “I say to Allenby, General Allenby, that the Crusader wars have not ended. I say unto General Gouraud that the feet of those who come near Saladin’s tomb will be cut off. I say unto them that if you are the descendants of the Crusaders, then we are the descendants of Saladin. I say to him, that in the year 1920, you said, ‘We have returned, Saladin.’ I say to you today that you have left Damascus and Beirut, and your children and descendants will leave Jerusalem. I say unto you that we are the descendants of Saladin, we are the descendants of ‘Umar bin Khattab, we are the descendants of Khalid ibn Walid, we are the descendants of the Prophet of Allah (PBUH). We are the children of Islam, the children of prophecy, the children of ‘there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the prophet of Allah.’
I say unto you Gouraud, we will return and we will kill anyone who has polluted the al-Aqsa Mosque. I say unto you that we will return, as the day of Qurayza from long ago. I say unto you that we will return, as the day of Khaybar from long ago. I say unto you that we will return. Jerusalem belongs to us. Al-Aqsa belongs to us. Jerusalem belongs to us, and the whole world belongs to us. Every land upon which Islam has set foot will return to us. The caliphate will return to us, on the platform of prophecy. The greatness and glory of Islam will return. Its justice will cover this land. I say unto you Gouraud, you Frenchman, that the land of Islam will return, and we will pray in Jerusalem.” Credit: Translating Jihad.

Patel appeared on a panel alongside Tariq Ramadan, grandson of the notorious founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Siraj Wahhaj, who was named as a possible co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Wahhaj has also defended the convicted WTC bomb plotters and has urged the Islamic takeover of America.” Read more.
