The five — Bachmann, Trent Franks (R-Arizona), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Tom Rooney (R-Florida), and Lynn Westmoreland (R-Georgia) — had sent letters to the inspectors general of the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security, and to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. They identified specific individuals, organizational affiliations, and activities of concern conducted by Muslim Brotherhood operatives employed in various capacities in the U.S. government. They cited links to the much-publicized Muslim Brotherhood mission statement that has called its work in America “a kind of grand Jihad to eliminate and destroy the Western civilization from within.”
All was ignored, despite the release five years earlier by the U.S. government itself of a list of several Muslim Brotherhood front organizations and their members across the United States, 300 in all, named as “unindicted co-conspirators” uncovered during the terrorism financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation, the largest such trial in U.S. history. The inside influence operation in America is extensive and goes far beyond the federal government to include Islamists posing as patriots and becoming part of the Tea Party movement, Islamists infiltrating the 9/11 Truther Movement, and Islamists becoming part of the fight for “civil liberties” through organizations like the ACLU, to name just a few.
Muslim Brotherhood in America
Established in 1928, four years after Kemal Ataturk dismantled the Ottoman Caliphate, the Muslim Brotherhood today has grown into the world’s oldest and largest Islamist movement. Its goal: to establish a global Islamic caliphate or government under sharia, or Islamic doctrine. It seeks to dismantle all non-Islamic governments on earth and supports terrorism against the West and Israel.
The Muslim Brotherhood has spawned al-Qaeda, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and various worldwide terrorist groups. In the 1950s, it established a beachhead in the United States and today has over 5,000 front organizations from coast to coast, according to a former FBI agent and designated “Subject Matter Expert” on the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic doctrine.
“The Project,” written in 1982 and discovered during a raid of the home of one of the organization’s international leaders by Swiss authorities following 9/11, is a multi-phased, long-term master plan for the cultural invasion of the West. The discovery of two documents in 2001 and 2004 provided, respectively, evidence of an actual MB plot for the cultural invasion and Islamic domination of the West and a general strategy for the takeover of America.
The Holy Land Foundation trial in 2007 provided for release of the incriminating and significant document “An Explanatory Memorandum for the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America.” Written by a senior Hamas leader in the United States in 1987, it was discovered during a 2004 FBI raid of a Virginia house. It outlines a plan of stealth jihad and gradual takeover and imposition of sharia. It also cites explicit strategies, including but not limited to subversion of American organizations, shutting down of free speech, control of the language to exclude accurate descriptions of jihadist activities, ensuring that non-Muslims don’t study Islamic doctrine, forcing sharia compliance, and claiming victimization.
