US Government Is Ignoring Muslim Brotherhood’s Nature

07/29/2012 2 comments

Daily World – “The No. 1 goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is to spread Sharia law throughout the world, not just in the Middle East. Since its founding over 80 years ago, the Muslim Brotherhood has been no friend of America’s ideals and democratic way of life. That is why it is so disturbing that the Obama Administration’s own State Department has given the Muslim Brotherhood’s radical Islamic agenda a wink and a nod.

Although the Obama administration wants Americans to believe that the Muslim Brotherhood is a moderate organization, nothing could be further from the truth. A sense of friendship with a radical organization will only jeopardize America’s security in the long run. Americans must realize what the Muslim Brotherhood stands for. Sharia law has spread into Europe and has taken hold in Egypt thanks to the Arab Spring. Many Americans do not understand what Sharia law entails or, for that matter, have even heard of it.

Essentially, Sharia law is a rigid Islamic moral code that commingles religion and government. Sharia law encompasses all facets of Muslim life from religion and finances, right down to personal hygiene. Before the U.S.-led invasion, Afghanistan was the center of Sharia law in the Muslim world, where women had no rights and were treated as second class citizens on a good day.

Andrew McCarthy is the former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York who successfully prosecuted Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, ‘the blind cleric,’ for the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993. He has written a riveting and smart piece for National Review Online about how the State Department has bowed to the Muslim Brotherhood’s agenda.

There are many revelations that McCarthy touches on but the three that stand out are:

» The State Department announced that the Obama Administration would be ‘satisfied’ with the election of a Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government in Egypt.

» The State Department has collaborated with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a bloc of governments heavily influenced by the Brotherhood, in seeking to restrict American free-speech rights in deference to Sharia proscriptions against criticism of Islam.

» The State Department and the Obama administration waived congressional restrictions in order to transfer $1.5 billion dollars in aid to Egypt after the Muslim Brotherhood’s victory in the parliamentary elections.” Read more.

Fruit Of The Boom: US On The Lookout For Terrorists Using Upgraded Underwear Bombs

07/29/2012 Leave a comment

Associated Press – “US security officials are on the lookout for upgraded underwear bombs containing a new type of explosive, it has been disclosed.

The revelation follows analysis of a bomb intercepted by a CIA operation in Yemen.

John Pistole, the US transportation security administrator, told an audience at a security forum in Aspen, Colorado that the device smuggled out by a double agent earlier this year was an upgrade from the underwear bomb carried by Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab on to a Detroit-bound airliner at Christmas 2009.

‘We found in the underwear plot, part 2 … that a different type of explosive had been used than the previous one,’ Pistole said.

‘So we have gone back and recalibrated all the equipment and we have been working with our canine to detect this different type of explosive.’

The CIA intercepted the new device earlier this year, thwarting an ambitious plot by al-Qaida’s affiliate in Yemen to destroy a US-bound airliner a year after the killing of Osama bin Laden.

The new model also had a more sophisticated trigger mechanism, an apparent attempt to fix the defect that burned the bomber but failed to ignite the bomb in the 2009 attack.” Source – The Guardian.

Former British Prime Minister: The West Is Asleep On Islamic Extremism

1 Thessalonians 5:6, “Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.”

“Western democracies need to wake up to the threat of Islamic extremism, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has said.

He said that even after 9/11, he underestimated the power of the extremists, and he thinks their power has grown since then.

Radical Muslims seek ‘supremacy not coexistence’, Mr Blair said, and he fears that ‘The West is asleep on this issue’, even though it is the biggest challenge…

He thinks there is a need to tackle the underlying motives of extremist Muslims, not just their violent methods.

The former Prime Minister made the remarks in an interview with the Daily Telegraph’s Charles Moore.

Tony Blair said the anti-religion movement stirred up by people like Richard Dawkins is not the answer…

He said that extreme atheists ‘require religious fundamentalists’ to make their argument for them, and ‘We must push back against aggressive secularism’.

A Bill to tackle the problem of Sharia courts operating in this country has been introduced to the House of Lords by Baroness Cox.

It would give Muslim women more protection from discrimination, and stop a parallel legal system taking root.” Source – The Christian Institute.

Flashback: ‘Caliphate Conference’ Seeks to Islamize America and Europe, Make It An International Crime to Criticize Islam – “A Muslim fundamentalist group is organizing a conference focused on turning Austria and other European countries into Islamic states… The conference is being organized by Hizb ut-Tahrir [Party of Liberation], a pan-Islamic extremist group that seeks to establish a global Islamic state, or caliphate, ruled by Islamic Sharia law. Hizb ut-Tahrir — which is banned in many countries, including Germany, but is free to operate in Austria — is virulently opposed to Western capitalism and democracy and seeks to extend the future caliphate to Europe and the United States.” Read more.

Flashback: Radical Islam: A Global Problem World Leaders Must Confront – “Radical Islam is a growing problem throughout the world. In Europe, it’s a burgeoning issue that politicians have been unwilling to address properly because of the influence of Muslims there, but it’s a critical problem in the United States, too — especially in our nation’s prisons. The mood in the U.S. is so anti-anti-Islam that politicians run for cover whenever Islam is raised as an issue. Not so with Representative Peter King (R-New York). He endured death threats and ridicule from liberals because he held hearings in the House of Representatives to investigate the Islamist threat we face as a nation.” Read more.

Flashback: ‘A Serious Intellectual Failing’: Obama Embraces Islam – “The Obama administration is doing its utmost to promote the fortunes of the Islamist parties in Egypt. A State Department official declared that with the rise of these radical groups after the Arab Spring, ‘people who once might have gone into al Qaeda see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.’ They see this as a victory. The problem is, so do the terrorists… from the terrorists’ point of view, it didn’t matter whether an Islamist victory came through violence or not. The means were unimportant except as they related to the end state: the imposition of hard-line Shariah-based laws and policies.” Read more.

Muslim Brotherhood Reiterates Desire For Islamic Caliphate, Declares ‘We Will Be Masters Of The World’

07/29/2012 1 comment

By Raymond Ibrahim – “During a televised interview earlier this week, Dr. Safwat Hegazy, a popular preacher in Egypt, known for his desire to unify the Arab world into a ‘United Arab States’—with Jerusalem for a capital—dropped the Western language and made clear what it is the Muslim Brotherhood ultimately seeks: a caliphate and world domination, which even the Supreme Guide of the Brotherhood maintains is the group’s mission.

In the interview, which Coptic Solidarity has translated with subtitles (click here), Hegazy simply declares: ‘If you read the literature of the Muslim Brotherhood, you will find in the literature of the Brotherhood, that which they can never abandon: The Islamic Caliphate and mastership of the world. Yes, we will be masters of the world, one of these days’ (emphasis his).” Source – Jihad Watch.

Flashback: Muslim Brotherhood Calls for a ‘United Arab States’ with Jerusalem as its Capital – “In this recent video, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Dr. Safwat Hegazy, a popular preacher, talks about how he yearns to see Arab nations become ‘like the United States’—for them to unify into the ‘United Arab States.’ While that may sound like an admirable (or at least neutral) goal, bear in mind what he is alluding to: the resurrection of a caliphate—which by nature exists to expand, including through jihad.” Read more.

Flashback: Muslim Brotherhood Elder: ‘The Whole World Belongs to Us … the Caliphate Will Return’ – “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.” Read more.
