Dear Rabbi Shaftan:

We  understand that  you undertaking an upcoming bus trip on Sunday, October 27th to visit the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro (ICM), “A Sacred Journey of Understanding.”   You  are likely to be presented with Da’wah (proselytizing) by Imam Ossama Bahloul, who is an expert in it, trained at al Azhar University in Cairo, a bastion of Sunni Supremacism with deep connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.  The founder of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), Hassan al Banna, was an Egyptian teacher from Ismailia and an  acolyte of Adolf Hitler. The MB credo is:

“Allah is our objective, the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader, Jihad is our way, and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations”.

Hardly peaceful, as attested to by the current violence in Egypt and elsewhere in the Middle East on the borders of Israel.

The Peculiar case of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center

In June 2009, the Boston Jewish community, Massachusetts Governor Derval Patrick and former Boston Mayor Tom Menino welcomed the opening of the $22 millionIslamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC)  allegedly built with with funds from Saudi Arabia and the Emirates.  Those allegations spurred a suit by the ISBCC in 2005, against  several plaintiffs. They  included The David Project and then  founder Dr. Charles JacobsSteve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism,The Boston Herald American and Fox News TV channel WFTX in Boston.  Jacobs went on to found Americans for Peace and Tolerance. The suit was dropped in 2007 by the ISBCC leaving the plaintiffs  to foot $2.0 million in legal defense fees.    ISBCC is controlled by the Muslim American Society (MAS), a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate.

The ISBCC sponsored a Mosque across the Charles in Cambridge. Among its attendees were the Tsarneav brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhor the perpetrators of theBoston Marathon Bombing.   Another  was Aafia Siddiqui  aka ‘Lady Al Qaeda ‘ a convicted terrorist serving a term of 86 years for being an al Qaeda courier and financier. She was  captured by US troops in Afghanistan in an attempt to kill them.  She was a Pakistani scientist and distinguished graduate of both Brandeis and MIT.   Another ISBCC attendee was an American Muslim pharmacist Tarek Mehanna of Sudbury, Massachusetts who was convicted in 2012 for providing material support for Al Qaeda and is now serving a 17.5 year term. He was involved in planning a Nairobi style mall attack in the US .  Another ISBCC attendee and colleague of deceased Tamerlan Tsarneav, was Ibragrim Todaschev. Todaschev was  killed by an FBI agent and Massachusetts state troopers in his Orlando, Florida  home in May 2013. He confessed to perpetrating, along with the late Tamerlan Tsarneav, a ritualistic murder of three men in suburban Waltham, Massachusetts on 9/11//11; two of them were fellow Jews.

Now while Massachusetts Governor Patrick warmly welcomed the ISBCC Mosque opening in 2009, their current Imam, Suhaib Webb, an American convert and former Oklahoma convicted felon, was disinvited from the ecumenical service at Holy Cross Cathedral in Boston the Friday following the Marathon Bombing on April 15, 2013. A substitute Imam not affiliated with the ISBCC and the Muslim Brotherhood replaced Sheik Webb at the ecumenical service.

The ISBCC has had some very problematic trustees, one of whom will appear at the ICM in a presentation  on November  3, 2013 in an Abrahamic  Religions event,“God’s Books”Jamal Badawi.

ISBCC trustee Abdulrahman Alamoudi is serving a 23 year sentence in a Federal prison convicted of being in a murder plot against the Saudi King and laundering funds for Al Qaeda. Another trustee is extremist Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian ‘spiritual leader’ Yusuf al Qaradawi. He was caught on video extolling anti-Semitic hatred during a Cairo Tahrir Square rally in February 2011 after returning from exile in Qatar. Al Qaradawi was famously quoted as saying:

“Conquest through Da’wah [proselytizing] that is what we hope for. We will conquer Europe, we will conquer America! Not through sword but through Da’wah.”

Jamal Badawi of Canada, a former trustee of the ISBCC, was named as a  un-indicted co-conspirator in the 2007- 2008  Holy Land Foundation terrorism trial in Dallas, Texas over the funneling of upwards of $35 million to Hamas, which is the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood.  Badawi  has been an enduring trustee of the Islamic Society of North America  and CAIR. He was an attendee at the 1991 Philadelphia  Summit of the American  wing  of the Muslim Brotherhood  that  created  a master plan for subversion of America  and spawned  the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Badawi has some peculiar beliefs  including  wife beating and execution of apostates- more on that subject later.  Badawi and fellow MB operative, Nihad Awad, Executive director of CAIR will be present for the”God’s Books “ program at the ICM on November 3, 2013. You might consider returning to ask them some pointed questions during the Q+A.

Some things to know about the ICM

As you planning to take busloads of your congregants to visit the ICM here are some things you should know about its leader Imam Bahloul, Shariah versus Jewish Halacha and what the Rambam Maimonides had to say about  Islam and the Prophet Mohammed.

Imam Bahloul is a distinguished graduate who holds a Masters in Da’wah – the call to Islam- from the 1,000 year old Sunni al Azhar University in Cairo. He is  a specialist in reaching out to unbelievers like you and your congregation endeavoring to  convey  a version of Islamic doctrine representing it as a religion of peace.

Given the turmoil in the Middle East doesn’t appear  to be much evidence of peace or tolerance towards non-Muslims.  Two things about the ICM and Imam Bahloul that you ought to know.  During the controversy over the building of the ICM, we found with the assistance of Steve Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism  screen shots on the Facebook pages of a board member of the ICM, Mosaad Rawash. They  contained  tributes to leaders of Hamas, the late blind Sheik Yassin and Dr. Rantisi, both assassinated by the IDF.  Further, when we sent Imam Bahloul and the ICM board in February 2010, a Freedom Pledge abjuring Shariah death fatwas for apostates, former Muslims, he refused to acknowledge it.  When approached by a local group in Murfreesboro in the fall of 2010 to consider a similar pledge  regarding Sharia Islamic law  concerning apostasy, treatment of women and gays he once again refused an opportunity to sign it.

Now, Imam Bahloul has every right to practice his faith with his members  of the ICM under the Freedom of Worship provisions of the First Amendment.  When Ms. Deborah Lauter, director of Civil Rights of the Anti-Defamation League was asked about the ICM board member’s support for Hamas, she said it was “irrelevant”.  What was important in her view was the ICM freedom of worship and ability under the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized  Persons Act of 2000 to build a mosque wherever they wanted. The ADL backed that up by filing an Amicus Brief in the Murfreesboro Chancery Court proceedings on behalf of its Interfaith Committee on Mosques.

What’s the difference between Sharia and Halacha?

Before we go further, Shariah is not the equivalent of Halacha.  It’s not. It is a total system of law controlling every aspect of Muslim life.

Rabbi Jon Hausman of Congregation Ahavath Torah in Stoughton, Massachusetts is qualified to distinguish between the two. In addition to his Orthodox ordination, he also undertook study in Arabic and Qur’an doctrine at the American University in Cairo. He reads and speaks Arabic fluently in addition to English and Hebrew. He wrote an article for our publication, the New English Review,Halacha, Sharia and the Religious Acceptance of Constitutional Governance.  Note what Rabbi Hausman said:

In theory, Sharia jurisprudence actually intended to be applicable to Muslims only. Christians [Jews] and other non-Muslims were supposed to be exempt from the provisions of the law; a provision that is not and has never been universally followed. Indigenous Christian and Jewish populations of the Middle East whose communities pre-dated the advent of Islam by centuries later were and are subjected to jizya and other punitive taxes and dissociative treatment. This is a result of their direct or indirect refusal to submit to  Islam according the Qur’an and Hadith as applied   today. Because in Islam, Religion is State and State is Religion.  Islam is political, and is determined to conquer.

Is that the hidden agenda of ICM Imam Bahloul and his board despite their Abrahamic Faith narrative?

What did  Maimonides  warn Jews  about the Prophet Mohammed and Islam?

I’m sure  during your  rabbinic training  you read the  commentaries of Maimonides. Perhaps you may be acquainted  with his Epistle to fellow Jews in Yemen written  in 1172 C.E. to Jacob ben Netan’el al-Fayyemi, who headed the Jewish community in Yemen:

“After him arose the Madman [ha-meshugga] who emulated his precursor since he paved the way for him. But he added the further objective of procuring rule and submission, and he invented his well known religion.”

Then there is this additional comment from the  Maimonides’  Iggeret Teiman:

“Remember, my co-religionists, that on account of the vast number of our sins, G-d has hurled us in the midst of this people, the Arabs, who have persecuted us severely, and passed baneful and discriminatory legislation against us […] Never did a nation molest, degrade, debase and hate us as much as they. Therefore when David, of blessed memory, inspired by the holy spirit, envisaged the future tribulations of Israel, he bewailed and lamented their lot only in the Kingdom of Ishmael, and prayed in their behalf, for their deliverance, as is implied in the verse, “Woe is me that I sojourn with Meschech that I dwell beside the tents of Kedar.” (Psalms 120:5).

Maimonides fled his native Cordoba during the era of the fanatic Berber Almohads who stormed across the Straits of Gibraltar to take over Al Andaluz in Muslim occupied Spain. The Almohads perpetrated some of the more heinous pogroms of Spanish Jewry. Thus, the myth of ” la convivencia ” that  medievalists  on the faculties of the Jewish Theological Seminary and your own Hebrew Union  Seminary have perpetrated is a dangerous historical delusion. After all the Alhambra predated the Almohad occupation of Spain. Maimonides had no such delusions. Neither should you.

Remember the Firebombing of your rabbinic colleague in Nashville?

A final note about the  problematic Jewish  Muslim community relations  in Nashville.   A homegrown terrorists that impacted Tennessee was the unfortunate case of Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, formerly Melvin Bledsoe. Bledsoe was a Muslim convert from Memphis who killed an Army recruiter Pvt. Andy Long  in June 2009 at a Little Rock, Arkansas Mall as payback for fighting his brothers in the Muslim Ummah in Iraq and Afghanistan. Muhammad was convicted and sentenced to life in prison in July 2011. You may recall that Bledsoe/Muhammad had firebombed the home of an Orthodox member of the Nashville rabbinate, Rabbi Saul Strosberg of Sherith Israel in an attempt to kill Jews.

Then there was the incident captured on video at Vanderbilt U in a Q+A session with  Dr. Ahwad Binhazim , part time Muslim chaplain who responded to a question about treatment of gays under Shariah:

Question:  Under Islamic law is it punishable by death if you are a homosexual?”
Binhazim said, “Yes. It is punishable by death.”

We  hope this letter might  equip you for your announced trip with your congregants  to the ICM this Sunday.

Federal Lawsuit Exposes Massive CAIR Fraud and Cover-up

American Freedom Law Center

Washington,  D.C. (November 26, 2012) – Last Friday, the Law Offices of David  Yerushalmi, P.C. and the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) filed a  devastating legal brief supported by hundreds of pages of evidence,  asking a federal judge to find the Council on American-Islamic Relations  (CAIR) liable to five of its former clients for fraud, breach of  fiduciary duty, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.  The  legal brief demonstrates beyond any reasonable doubt that CAIR is a  criminal organization that deceptively holds itself out to the public as  the nation’s largest Muslim-American civil rights organization.

The brief and supporting evidence were filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in two companion cases, Saiyed v. CAIR and Lopez v. CAIR,  in which David Yerushalmi is lead counsel.  The brief and supporting  evidence overwhelmingly demonstrate that CAIR was involved in a massive  criminal fraud and cover-up that injured numerous client-victims who had  looked to CAIR for legal assistance, yet the CAIR “attorney” allegedly  handling their cases was in fact not an attorney.

Yerushalmi,  who is also Co-Founder and Senior Counsel of AFLC, commented, “The  evidence has long suggested that CAIR is an organization set up by the  Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas to further its aims of stealth Jihad in the  United States,” referring to the fact that CAIR was named by the  federal government as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land  Foundation terrorism financing trial.  “According to the facts that are  carefully laid out in our legal brief and fully supported by the record  evidence,” Yerushalmi explained, “CAIR has engaged in a massive criminal  fraud in which numerous CAIR clients have been victimized, and because  of the CAIR cover-up many still don’t realize it.  The fact that CAIR  has victimized Muslims and non-Muslims alike demonstrates that it is  only looking out for itself and its ongoing efforts to bilk donors out  of millions of dollars of charitable donations thinking they are  supporting a legitimate organization.”

Five  former clients of CAIR filed the two lawsuits in federal court alleging  common law and statutory fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and  intentional infliction of emotional distress against CAIR.  These two  lawsuits followed an earlier lawsuit which had also alleged that CAIR’s  fraudulent conduct amounted to racketeering, a federal RICO crime.  In  that case, the court dismissed the RICO counts, concluding that CAIR’s  conduct as alleged was fraudulent but not a technical violation of RICO.   The two civil lawsuits were filed by Yerushalmi on January 6, 2010,  and because they arise out of the same facts, the cases were  consolidated.

The  supporting evidence, which was compiled after more than a year and a  half of contentious discovery that involved numerous document requests,  motions to compel the production of documents that CAIR was concealing,  and multiple depositions of high-ranking CAIR officials, shows that  Morris Days, the “Resident Attorney” and “Civil Rights Manager” at the  now defunct CAIR-MD/VA chapter in Herndon, Virginia, was in fact not an  attorney and that he failed to provide legal services for clients who  came to CAIR for legal representation.  The evidence also shows that  CAIR knew of this fraud and purposefully conspired with Days to keep the  CAIR clients from discovering that their legal matters were being  mishandled or not handled at all.  While Yerushalmi and AFLC represent  the five plaintiffs in these two lawsuits, three of whom are Muslim  Americans, according to CAIR’s internal documents, there were many more  victims of the CAIR fraud scheme.

As  set forth in the court filings, CAIR knew or should have known that Days  was not a lawyer when it hired him.  But, like many organizations  accused of wrongdoing, things got worse when CAIR officials were  confronted with clear evidence of Days’ fraudulent conduct.  Rather than  come clean and attempt to rectify past wrongs, CAIR conspired with Days  to conceal and further the fraud.  To this end, CAIR officials  purposefully concealed the truth about Days from the clients, law  enforcement, and the media.  When CAIR did receive calls from irate  clients about Days’ failure to provide competent legal services, CAIR  fraudulently deceived them about Days’ relationship with CAIR,  suggesting that he was never actually employed by CAIR.

Robert  Muise, co-counsel in the lawsuit and Co-Founder and Senior Counsel of  AFLC, commented: “The overwhelming evidence marshaled in this case will  finally put to rest the myth fabricated by CAIR’s PR machine and  perpetrated by a complicit media that this is a legitimate  Muslim-American civil rights organization.  This lawsuit strips away  CAIR’s veil of legitimacy.”

More People Must Care about CAIR

Nihad Awad

By Adam Turner:

It has come to my attention that I may be suffering from “CAIRophobia.”

Almost certainly, according to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), I am already afflicted with “Islamophobia,” which they define as “unfounded fear of and hostility towards Islam. Such fear and hostility leads to discriminations against Muslims, exclusion of Muslims from mainstream political or social process, stereotyping, the presumption of guilt by association, and finally hate crimes.”  Islamophobia is actually a term the Muslim Brotherhood – the granddaddy of all Islamist groups – and their cohorts may have invented to take advantage of the bleeding hearts among the politically correct.  So, if I am suffering from it, I suppose it is just a short hop to also suffering from “CAIRophobia,” which I define as having a very rational fear of CAIR.

I accept this phobia.  In fact, I sure wish some others had CAIRophobia.

CAIR is very busy pressure group these days.  Recently, it demanded that the Pentagon drop a former CIA operative who worked inside Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, known by his pseudonym of Reza Kahlili, as a lecturer at the Department of Defense’s Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy.  Although Kahlili is primarily known for teaching, writing and lecturing about the dangers the radical Iranian regime poses to the West, CAIR still felt the need to call for his dismissal for his supposed “anti-Islam agenda” as a former Muslim-turned-Christian.  This is all part of CAIR’S continuing quest to purge the Defense Department and other government departments or agencies of the services of any expert who identifies radical Islam as a major threat to our nation.  CAIR’s public relations “jihads” have been waged against such people as Robert Spencer, John Guandolo, and Matthew Dooley.  In Kahlili’s case, the Pentagon refused to drop him, but it did go out of its way to assure CAIR that Kahlili “does not lecture on or about Islam or any religious treatise, and his personal beliefs are his own.”

CAIR has also recently been hard at work attempting to shame and malign Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN), and her four congressional compatriots for their letters to the Inspector Generals (IGs) of the Defense Department, the State Department, the Justice Department, the Homeland Security Department, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.  These letters asked the IGs to investigate thoroughly the degree to which members of, or sympathizers with, the Muslim Brotherhood are active in our defense and intelligence communities, and what impact that possible infiltration might be having on our national security.  Through its pressure, CAIR presumably hopes to force the congressional leadership to block any such investigation. Harming the political careers of these Congressmen and intimidating others from ever addressing any issue related to radical Islam is an added benefit.

Further, CAIR, with the help of its left-wing friends at the Associated Press, along with other politically correct leftists, has also sought to embarrass and intimidate the New York Police Department (NYPD) from doing its job: protecting the public of New York City.  The NYPD has found itself in CAIR’s crosshairs because of its continuing surveillance of Muslim people, mosques, etc. in public areas.  Even though going to Muslim-inhabited areas to surveil Muslim terrorists makes as much sense as going to an Italian-American club to surveil possible members of the Italian Mafia or going to an Irish-American bar to surveil potential IRA terrorists, CAIR believes that Muslim Americans deserve the special right not to be surveilled.

The amazing part of all this is that CAIR has an uncanny, Teflon-like ability to avoid mainstream criticism of its own disturbing background.

These are the facts involving CAIR.  CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding caseSome of its members have been indicted and then convicted of terrorism, fraud or other criminal charges.  Research has shown that CAIR does not seem to have much of an American membership, and that it probably relies on funding from other sources, including the now defunct Hamas-funder, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), and potentially illegal foreign funding, especially from Saudi Arabia. CAIR even hit up the despicable Gaddafi regime in Libya for cash.  The executive director of CAIR, Nihad Awad, participated in a three-day summit of U.S.-based members and supporters of the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.  CAIR refused for many years to unequivocally condemn Hezbollah and Palestinian terror organizations by name, even those which are formally designated terror groups by the U.S. and international community. Members of CAIR have also been caught promoting or making anti-Semitic statements. For much more information on CAIR, just see this website devoted to exposing CAIR, which CAIR unsuccessfully attempted to shut down through a defamation lawsuit.

Luckily, there are some other prominent CAIRophobes.  The FBI has severed its ties with CAIR.  Numerous U.S. senators and congressmen have condemned it, including Democratic Senators Charles Schumer and Dick Durban.  Numerous judges, FBI agents, and even a U.S. attorney have also weighed in.

Kansas City Target of Sharia Campaign

From Emily’s blog at Stop Radical Islam:

As part of their “National Sharia Campaign,” the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) will bombard the Kansas City public with billboards and radio ads. In the words of ICNA member Sabeel Ahmed, who is behind the campaign,

We should use every opportunity presented or created to sensitize non-Muslim peers and school staff with Islam and establish an environment in which every where a non-Muslims turn, they notice Islam by it and eventually accept Islam with Allah’s guidance, insha Allah … Indeed Islam came to tear down the pillars portrayed in a positive way and get influenced of kufr (infidels) and replace them with the pillars of Islam.

ICNA’s press release tells us, “During this campaign, which runs from Jan. 23, 2012, until Feb. 19, 2012, ICNA Kansas City will air messages on Shariah through KMBZ 980 AM (Radio) and post a billboard on Shariah at I-70 and 38th street. The campaign messages are expected to reach over 200,000 people per week. The messages will invite the public to call 1-855-SHARIAH hotline or visit our website at http://defendingreligiousfreedom.com to learn and ask questions about Shariah and Islam. The visitors to the website and the callers to the hotline can request a free copy of the English translation of the Quran and other free literature on Islam and Shariah.

For those wondering just who is “Defending Religious Freedom,” the ICNA was included on a Muslim Brotherhood document entitled “A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends,” which was submitted (unopposed) into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial. This document identified ICNA as an entity or affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood. Further, ICNA was named by the Department of Justice (DoJ), which prosecuted the case, an unindicted co-conspirator.

Always nice to know who’s educating us about “Religious Freedom.”

Why Is HAMAS Inside Tampa Schools?

by Clare Lopez:

 Kelly Miliziano, who teaches history classes at Steinbrenner High School in the Tampa, Florida area apparently thinks it’s perfectly OK to invite a senior official of a HAMAS-affiliated organization into her classroom to discuss Islam with her students. According to local media reports, not only has this been going on for years, but in spite of the civil and criminal proceedings that could result from such reckless negligence, the Hillsborough County school superintendant, Mary Ellen Elia, and the chairman of the school board, Candy Olson, also expressed approval for students under their responsibility to be exposed repeatedly to guest speaker, Hassan Shibly, who is the Executive Director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in the Tampa area.

And why is CAIR a problem? CAIR is an Islamic organization that was listed by the Department of Justice (DoJ) as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) HAMAS terror funding trial more than three years ago. According to the DoJ evidence submitted in that trial, CAIR was irrefragably demonstrated to be an element of the HAMAS Palestine Committee in the U.S. HAMAS, of course, is the Palestinian off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza and a U.S.-government-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization. Therefore, it is readily appreciated that CAIR is actually HAMAS doing business in the U.S. under another name. Based on that evidence as well as the unanimous guilty verdict for the HLF defendants in the 2008 trial, the FBI severed all ties with CAIR the following year.

Now, as noted above, the individual to whom world history teacher Kelly Miliziano has exposed dozens of her Steinbrenner High School students holds a senior position with the CAIR operation in Tampa. As CAIR’s top representative in Tampa, Hassan Shibly is a ranking official of an organization known by the FBI and U.S. justice system to be a façade for HAMAS, a vicious terror organization sworn to the destruction of the State of Israel, which seized power in Gaza in bloody coup in 2007 and has since implemented strict Islamic law there.

Amputation, flogging, stoning and crucifixion are all part of the HAMAS legal code. To date, and for reasons best known to itself, the DoJ has failed to prosecute CAIR or any of the hundreds of other Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated co-conspirators in the HLF case—which helps to explain why there even is a CAIR organization in existence in Tampa, Florida today. As a teacher of world religions and educator of impressionable young minds, Ms. Miliziano has a professional responsibility to know her subject matter and, equally importantly, to thoroughly vet those guest speakers allowed direct contact with her Steinbrenner High history students.

As anyone who has actually studied the history of Islam knows, shariah law commands all Muslims to engage in jihad, which is warfare to spread Islam (per The Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law, Section o9.0, pg. 599). In obedience to shariah, the Muslim Brotherhood’s motto states:

Allah is our objective

The Prophet is our guide

The Qur’an is our law

Jihad is our way

And Dying in the Way of Allah is our highest aspiration.

Unfortunately for Ms. Miliziano and her unsuspecting students, that same Classic Manual of Islamic Law (also called the ‘Umdat al-Salik and easily available online), contains an entire chapter dedicated to Lying and Taqiyya. As may be read there, Muslims are obligated to lie to the enemy in wartime…which means that any devout Muslim, faithful to the doctrine and law of Islam, is taught and trained to lie to the kuffar (infidel) as part of routine “religious” studies. There is nothing anywhere to suggest that Hassan Shibly is anything but a devout and faithful Muslim. The problem with bringing him in to teach “infidel” students about Islam would seem rather apparent at this point.

But to continue with just a bit more of the history lesson for the hapless Ms. Miliziano: HAMAS, founded in 1987, asserts its genocidal raison d’être in the opening paragraph of its Covenant:

Israel will rise and will remain erect until Islam eliminates it as it had eliminated its predecessors.

And yet, history teacher Miliziano still would be remiss were she to have ended her studies here. For among the documents placed online by the Texas federal judge in the HLF HAMAS terror funding case (in which CAIR was named unindicted co-conspirator), is one of relatively recent origin, dating back only to 1991. It was written by one of the top Muslim Brothers in the U.S. at the time and is called the “Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.” Had this teacher of history actually read this short but historically speaking, vitally important document, she would have found the following passage:

The Ikhwan 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 hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.

And had Ms. Miliziano been exceptionally diligent, she might even have learned that all the top leaders of al-Qa’eda were members of the Muslim Brotherhood first: Usama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, just to name a few. Today’s Muslim Brotherhood is led by dedicated followers of the founders, Hassan al-Banna and Sayyed Qutb, who openly advocated violence and terror to seize power. Yousef al-Qaradawi is known as the “spiritual leader” of the Brotherhood and returned from exile to a rapturous welcome from a million Egyptians in Tahrir Square just a week after President Hosni Mubarak was ousted in February 2011. Al-Qaradawi is on record sanctioning suicide bombings against Israelis and has called for application of strict Islamic law (shariah) in Egypt.

Since the Muslim Brotherhood swept early 2012 parliamentary elections, calls for re-instatement of the dhimmi system (including payment of the jizya by Christians and Jews), and abrogation of the Camp David peace treaty with Israel have been heard from top Brotherhood leadership with increasing insistence.
