Muslim Brotherhood vs US

(background info)

Since its founding in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood (Hizb al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun) has profoundly influenced the political life of the Middle East. Its motto is telling: "Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."

Hasan al-Banna created an organization described by Arab historians as "the greatest modern Islamic movement." Al-Banna was known to say:

"We need three generations for our plans - one to listen, one to fight, and one to win."

The most recent prominent terrorist offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood is the Palestinian group HAMAS, which surfaced as a separate group in 1988 upon the release of its "Islamic Covenant" by Sheikh Ahmed Yassin. He had been the head of the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza for a number of years and his group can be traced back to 1978 when it was registered as an Islamic association called Al-Mujamma Al-Islami. In its Islamic Covenant of 1988 the group plainly describes itself as the "Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood."

(in the last decade)...With moderate rhetoric and well-spoken German, Dutch, and French, the Muslim Brotherhood has gained acceptance among European governments and media alike. Politicians across the political spectrum rush to engage them whenever an issue involving Muslims arises or, more parochially, when they seek the vote of the burgeoning Muslim community.

But, speaking Arabic or Turkish before their fellow Muslims, they drop their facade and embrace radicalism. While their representatives speak about interfaith dialogue and integration on television, their mosques preach hate and warn worshippers about the evils of Western society. While they publicly condemn the murder of commuters in Madrid and school children in Russia, they continue to raise money for Hamas and other terrorist organizations. Europeans, eager to create a dialogue with their increasingly disaffected Muslim minority, overlook this duplicity. The case is particularly visible in Germany, which retains a place of key importance in Europe, not only because of its location at the heart of Europe, but also because it played host to the first major wave of Muslim Brotherhood immigrants and is host to the best-organized Brotherhood presence. The German government's reaction is also instructive if only to show the dangers of accepting Muslim Brotherhood rhetoric at face value, without looking at the broader scope of its activities.

In his speech before the 3rd international conference for supporting Palestinian and Iraqi resistance, the Muslim Brotherhood Chairman, Mr. M. Akef, criticized the US policies in the region and called upon Muslims to unite in their pursuit of justice. The followings are excerpts from his speech:


"The human race had hoped for a better future in the aftermath of the Second World War...then terrible human crime took place by the recognition of Israel on the ruins of Palestine . . . via genocides against its Palestinian inhabitants forcing the expatriation of those who survived and rendering them Diaspora worldwide. A state that was established by the confiscation of land and houses and by annexation of towns and villages in the worst form of raciest and . . . colonialist occupation that is ever known."


"After the end of the Cold War, following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the rise of the US as the only superpower in the world, the US disclosed its plots for hegemony and domination of the whole world by establishing a new colonialist empire . . . used the United Nations as a tool . . . (and sometimes) bypassed the UN and carried out its plots in defiance and arrogance to such a degree whereby it used its Congress to pass laws for punishing other sovereign states!
This was followed by the co-operation between the old and new colonial powers in order to . . . weaken and humiliate our Umma . . . supplying Israel with aid and weapons . . . using the Vito (sic) in the Security Council to protect the Israeli aggression . . . (and) by imposing and supporting the repressive and despotic regimes that repel its people to govern our countries."

". . . the US administration has invented the story of the “Weapon of Mass Destruction”, and the alleged co-operation between the Iraqi regime and Al Qaeda . . . to invade Iraq, killing tens of thousands of its citizens...

"The US is still preying around Syria to bring it to its knees . . . trying to impose a puppet regime in Lebanon and disarm HezboAllah . . . isolating Iran and forcing it to abandon its peaceful nuclear program . . . (all of that) to safeguard the Israeli interests and supremacy in the region. The American assault extended to environment by refusing to ratify Kyoto Treaty.

"I salute not only all men and women but also the children who with stones steadfastly fending off the forces of occupation armed with most lethal weapons. It is our duty to support them through:
• Dissemination of Islamic principles that reject submission to repression and invoke resistance
• Revival of the will of liberation and independence amongst our people in order to maintain an honorable life, preserve the identity and wealth
• Supporting Hamas, the elected Palestinian Administration, financially and morally . . . to preserve the dignity of the Palestinian people and to spare them the need to be dependent on the biased West
• Supporting Sudan and safeguard its sovereignty against the imminent western military intervention in Darfour
• Co-operation with the free men and women across the world to stand firm against all forms of occupation . . . to form a world league and an international public opinion
• Reactivation of the economic embargo to the colonialist countries and boycotting the negative aspects of their culture that do not conform to our values
• Striving to correct the distorted image of Islam perpetuated by the Zionist media in the mind of majority of Western people; clarifying the true nature of our just causes in order to win western public support."

I hope Americans are reading this. They have no shame is saying what they really believe. It amazes me that people cannot see this for what it is, evil.

They are spreading their lies to the four corners of the earth.
They are like a deadly virus...
But, the good news is that somewhere we have a vaccine ready against this disease!
