Introduction To The Muslim Brotherhood
Have you ever asked yourself why, despite more than ten years of
efforts -- involving, among other things, the loss of thousands of
lives in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, well-over a trillion dollars
spent, countless man-years wasted waiting in airport security lines
and endless efforts to ensure that no offense is given to seemingly
permanently aggrieved Muslim activists -- are we no closer to
victory in the so-called "War on Terror" than we were on 9/11?
Thankfully, we have been able to kill some dangerous bad guys.
The sad truth of the matter is that, by almost any other measure,
the prospect of victory is becoming more remote by the day, and no
one seems able to explain the reason.
In an effort to provide
the missing answer, on April 24, the Center for Security Policy made
available via the Internet a new, free ten-part video course called
"The Muslim Brotherhood in America: The Enemy Within." This
course connects the proverbial dots, drawing on a wealth of publicly
available data and first-hand accounts to present a picture that
has, for over a decade, been obscured, denied and suppressed:
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
Part 1 -- The Threat Doctrine Of Shariah & The Muslim Brotherhood
The first section of this briefing explains what shariah is according
to the authorities and institutions of Islam and as promoted most
aggressively by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Part 2 -- "Civilization Jihad" In America
The Muslim Brotherhood's strategy for realizing its mission of
"destroying Western civilization from within" was described in an
undated 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document entitled "Phases of the
World Underground Movement Plan." In this part, we investigate what
they're doing to implement it.
Part 3 -- Influence Operations Against
Conservatives & The GOP
With this grounding in the nature of shariah, the goals and
activities of the Muslim Brotherhood to impose it worldwide and an
introduction to the latter's civilization jihad against the United
States, let's take a closer look at one of the Ikhwan's most
successful influence operations: its penetration and manipulation of
the Republican Party and the conservative movement in America.
Part 4 -- Suhail Khan, A Case Study In
If we are to understand the full nature of the threat posed by the
likes of Suhail Khan, which is -- as Sun Tsu admonishes -- a
prerequisite to counteracting that threat, we need to examine the
Khan case study in closer detail.
Part 5 -- The Organizations Islamists Are
Using To Subvert The Right
The next part of this briefing offers some illustrative examples of
the myriad ways in which Grover Norquist and his team are still very
actively and purposefully promoting the Islamist agenda -- with
considerable, and toxic, effect.
Part 6 -- Electing Islamist Republicans
In this part, we consider how several individuals with ties to the
Muslim Brotherhood or other Islamists have been groomed to run for
office as Republicans. The careers of Grover Norqust proteges
Kamal Nawash, Faisal Gill, and Imad 'David' Ramadan are given close
Part 7 -- Advancing The Islamists' Agendas
Building infrastructure and running candidates helps with the third
part of Grover Norquist's ongoing Islamist influence operation:
advancing the agendas of the civilization jihadists or, at a
minimum, promoting agendas that serve the Islamists' interests.
Part 8 --
Team Obama & The Islamists
The Obama administration has greatly exacerbated the penetration of
the U.S. government achieved during the Bush administration.
This part of the course will concentrate on illustrative examples of
Muslim Brotherhood-associated individuals who have been allowed
access to -- and, in some cases, given positions in the Obama
administration. This part is a case study of Rashad Hussain,
Huma Abedin, Daliah Mogahed, Kifa Mustapha, Momamed Elibiary, and
Part 9 --
Team Obama & The Islamists
In the closing days of the 2008 presidential campaign, Democratic
candidate Barack Obama declared that he was poised to begin
"fundamentally transforming the United States of America." He
has certainly done so with respect to policies favored by Islamists.
This part is a two-hour deep drill-down into the disastrous
policies of the Obama White House, its State Department, Defense
Department, Justice Department, Department of Homeland Security, and
Part 10 -- What's To Be Done?
How to defeat the most serious and imminent of such dangers in our
time: the Islamist doctrine of shariah and the efforts of its
adherents to impose it world-wide, on Muslims and non-Muslims alike,
through violent means or by stealth.
