Muslim Brotherhood Officially Declares War On The West

Personally, I thought they had declared war on us a long time ago, but I guess I was thinking of the war on the infidels declared by Osama bin Laden in 1996. But, as I have pointed out several times, it is time we recognized that we are at war with Islam and state as much. Also, as I’ve said, anyone is free in the United States to practice whatever religion they want to practice, and that goes for Muslims as well. BUT, and here is where the problem lies, Islam is not just a religion. It is an ideology; a totalitarian, brutal, supremacist, waring, misogynistic, and barbarian ideology. And, it is this ideology and the barbaric system of laws and government called Sharia that must be stopped if the West is to survive. The Gloria Center just announced that the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, the most dangerous Muslim organization in the world, with hundreds of times more members than al Qaeda, especially when you realize that supposedly “mainstream” organizations like CAIR are nothing but fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood, officially declared war on the West a few days ago. And, as I have pointed our here and here, the Muslim Brotherhood is very much alive and well in the United States.

The article from the Gloria Center, by Barry Rubin starts out:

This is one of those obscure  Middle East events of the utmost significance that is ignored by the Western mass media, especially because they happen in Arabic, not English; by Western governments, because they don’t fit their policies; and by experts, because they don’t mesh with their preconceptions.

This explicit formulation of a revolutionary program makes it a game-changer. It should be read by every Western decision maker and have a direct effect on policy because this development may affect people’s lives in every Western country.

OK, enough of a build-up? Well, it isn’t exaggerated. So don’t think the next sentence is an anticlimax. Here we go: The leader of the Muslim Brotherhood has endorsed (Arabic) (English translation by MEMRI) anti-American Jihad and pretty much every element in the al-Qaida ideology book. Since the Brotherhood is the main opposition force in Egypt and Jordan as well as the most powerful group, both politically and religiously, in the Muslim communities of Europe and North America this is pretty serious stuff.

By the way, no one can argue that he merely represents old, tired policies of the distant past because the supreme guide who said these things was elected just a few months ago. His position reflects current thinking.

Does that mean the Egyptian, Jordanian, and all the camouflaged Muslim Brotherhood fronts in Europe and North America are going to launch terrorism as one of their affiliates, Hamas, has long done? No.

But it does mean that something awaited for decades has happened: the Muslim Brotherhood is ready to move from the era of propaganda and base-building to one of revolutionary action. At least, its hundreds of thousands of followers are being given that signal. Some of them will engage in terrorist violence as individuals or forming splinter groups; others will redouble their efforts to seize control of their countries and turn them into safe areas for terrorists and instruments for war on the West.

When the extreme and arguably marginal British Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary says that Islam will conquer the West and raise its flag over the White House, that can be treated as wild rhetoric. His remark is getting lots of attention because he said it in English in an interview with CNN. Who cares what he says?

That recent CNN video is below.

But when the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood says the same thing in Arabic, that’s a program for action, a call to arms for hundreds of thousands of people, and a national security threat to every Western country.

If you go to the actual declaration of war by Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Muhammad Badi as translated from Arabic to English by MEMRI, you find several interesting quotes, including the ones below.

“Many Arab and Muslim regimes have not managed to build up their peoples, due to their weakness and their dependence [on the West], and in many cases they have begun to work against the interests of the [Muslim] nation… The lands of the Arabs and of Islam are now plagued with problems because [the Arabs] have lost their [strength of] will, leaving it to the Zionist enemies and their supporters. [The Arab and Muslim regimes] have forgotten, or are pretending to have forgotten, that the real enemy lying in wait for them is the Zionist entity. They are aiming their weapons against their own peoples, while avoiding any confrontation with these Zionists and achieving neither unity nor revival for their nations. Moreover, they are disregarding Allah’s commandment to wage jihad for His sake with [their] money and [their] lives, so that Allah’s word will reign supreme and the infidels’ word will be inferior…

“Today the Muslims desperately need a mentality of honor and means of power [that will enable them] to confront global Zionism. [This movement] knows nothing but the language of force, so [the Muslims] must meet iron with iron, and winds with [even more powerful] storms. They crucially need to understand that the improvement and change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life.”

I guess that sort of puts to bed as a lie the  favorite pronouncements of the politicos of the West and the main stream media that Islam is a “religion of peace” and that “jihad” just refers to an inner spiritual struggle. Later in his declaration of war, Badi states:

Islam Is Capable of Confronting Oppression and Tyranny… The Outcome of the Confrontation Has Been Predetermined by Allah”

“The Muslim nation has the means [to bring about] improvement and change… It knows the way, the methods, and the road signs, and it has a practical role model in Allah’s Messenger, [the Prophet Muhammad]… who clarified how to implement the values of the [Koran] and the Sunna at every time and in every place. In addition, we have the histories of the ancient prophets, and of the rise and fall of [previous] nations…

“Allah said: ‘The hosts will all be routed and will turn and flee [Koran 54:45].’ This verse is a promise to the believers that they shall defeat their enemies, and [that the enemies] shall withdraw. The Companions of the Prophet received this Koranic promise in Mecca, when they were weak… and a little more than nine years after the Hijra, Allah fulfilled his promise in the Battle of Badr… Can we compare that to what happened in Gaza?

“Today we see how much the [Muslim] nation needs unity… O Muslim nation, unite! O sons of Palestine, unite, all of you, in the face of the enemies who scheme against you, and know that Allah is the best of schemers, and that though Him you shall triumph. [Know that] Islam is capable of confronting oppression and tyranny, and that the outcome of the confrontation has been predetermined by Allah.”

It is interesting to note that the article on the MEMRI site also stated that the Palestinian Authority condemned the speech, while the speech stated that a 3rd Intifada was about to be launched by Hamas in Palestine. Recent articles posted by both DebkaFile and Stratfor report that al-Qaeda has threatened attacks in Lebanon if Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visits Lebanon on October 13 and 14, as planned. Hezbollah’s chief Hassan Nasrallah has stated that it would stand up to al Qaeda if they attacked in Lebanon. At the same time, Debkafile is stating that Hezbollah plans to topple the Lebanese government of Saad Hariri immediately after Ahmadnejad’s visit. This, obviously, could be the start of the Middle East war that I have been anticipating for several years. We should have taken out Iran’s nuclear facilities years ago. Now, the war that will almost certainly occur in the next month or two will be far worse than it would have been years ago before Iran and it’s proxies, Hezbollah and Hamas, had been allowed so much time to build up their supplies of offensive weapons.
