Poll Context: The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations is holding its second annual National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC today and according to them, the purpose of the visit to Capitol Hill is to,
“focus on promoting a legislative agenda in support of equality and social justice issues.”
Frank J. Gaffney Jr, a contributor to The Hill, has concerns however. He writes,
Members of Congress should be clear about the true nature of that agenda. It is laid out most authoritatively in a document introduced into evidence by federal prosecutors in the course of the largest terrorism financing trial in the nation’s history, U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation et al. Written in 1991 by a top Muslim Brotherhood operative, Mohamed Akram, and entitled “The Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal of the Group in North America,” this internal correspondence was meant for the eyes only of the organization’s leadership in Egypt. So, the document is direct and to the point: It explicitly states that the mission of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America is “destroying Western civilization from within … by [the infidels’] hands and the hands of the believers so that Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
The document he describes, details the Muslim Brotherhood’s favored technique for accomplishing its stated goal of,
“destroying Western civilization” — at least until such time as they are strong enough to use violence decisively: “civilization jihad.”
Do you accept their that their intentions or just concerned with social issues or is their ultimate aim, “destroying Western civilization”?
