The Muslim Brotherhood and the Ground Zero Mosque
The world organization that has dedicated itself to world wide Sharia law is the Muslim Brotherhood; a religious and political organization that had it's start in Egypt in 1928. The primary goal is "the upbringing of an Islamic generation" through the restructuring of society and religious education. The Muslim Brotherhood has been active in the United states since 1960 with it's stated purpose as Dawa (proselytizing Sharia Law; see Where is the Outcry from Mainstream Muslims). The Muslim Brotherhood is considered moderate for it's belief in non-violent jihad as the method for converting the world to Islam; they have close ties to Hamas, are vehemently anti-Zionist and are the organizers of the recent flotilla demonstrations trying to run the blockade of Gaza. However in May of 1991, a inflammable memorandum called the “Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America,” was distributed by Mohamed Akram, Dr. Mohamed Akram Adlouni (or Adluni) to high ranking members in the United States. At the time of writing, Adlouni was one of the key players within the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. He was a member of the Shura Council and five departments within the apparatus including, the Planning department; the Special Committee and the Secretary of the Palestine Committee The Muslim Brotherhood in the United States,. Article 4 of his memorandum states, “The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan (aka the Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their [own] hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other 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. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.” The Muslim Brotherhood is the largest collective of Muslim organizations in the world. Imam Fiesal Abdual Raouf, the front man for the NY ground zero mosque, is a high ranking member of this organization from Malaysia, currently operating in the United States. His father, Mohammed Abdul Rauf, is a close contemporary of the Muslin Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna.
