America faces in addition to the threat of violent jihad another, even more toxic danger – a stealthy and pre-violent form of warfare aimed at destroying our constitutional form of democratic government and free society. The Muslim Brotherhood is the prime-mover behind this seditious campaign, which it calls "civilization jihad."
In 1996 Abdulrahman Alamoudi, The first president of the Islamic Society of Boston, and an al-Qaeda financier, who was convicted in federal court in 2004 for his role in an assassination plot against then-Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah, and "outreach partner" for the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations had this to say at an Islamic conference where he summarized the Muslim Brotherhood's strategy in the United States.
I have no doubt in my mind, Muslims sooner or later will be the moral leadership of America. It depends on me and you, either we do it now or we do it after a hundred years, but this country will become a Muslim country. And I(think) if we are outside this country we can say 'oh, Allah destroy America', but once we are here, our mission in this country is to change it...(1)The U.S. government has documents in its possession authored by Mohamed Akram Adlouni, a former top U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leader connected to the Hamas network who has worked out of Labanon in recent years. In a document called "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America," Akram lays out a multi-pronged plan to wage a new kind of warfare from within the United States - not with bombs or bullets in classic terrorist style, but a covert war of deception fought in the media, the courtrooms and classrooms, in our political institutions, and throughout our civic life.
Akram explains that Muslim's "Civilizational - Jihadist responsibility" involves nothing less than waging covert war from within:
The process of settlement is a "Civilizational-Jihadist" process with all the word means. The Ikhwan(The Society of Muslim Brothers, i.e. The Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that all their work in America is a kind of Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabatoging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is elimininated and God's religion(Allah) is made victorious over all religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim's destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack.Akram goes on to say that the most important elements in waging this "grand jihad" against Western Civilization will include, "a mastery of the art of 'coalitions', the art of 'absorption' and the principles of 'cooperation.'" Meaning that this war from within will not be primarily conducted through violent means - although terrorism is always an option - but the Brotherhood(Muslim Brotherhood);intends to destroy our civilization from the inside incrementally.
The Brothers'(Muslim Brotherhood) stealth strategy includes gaining and exercising influence in the media, government, and educational circles; building mosques across a wide geographical area and establishing self-segregating Islamic enclaves; forging alliances with the political Left; and engaging in a mass media blitz to reshape the national conversation(and public policy) when it comes to Islam, Israel, and the broader Middle East.(2)
