COLUMN: Fatah – Why you should be worried about the Muslim Brotherhood

‘Brothers’ of the Muslim Brotherhood

by Tarek Fatah

A fascist ideology whose seed was planted in the Nile Delta by radical Muslims 80 years ago has finally sprouted in Egypt, but not before spreading its roots across much of the Islamic world and in North America.

Who are the “Brothers” of the Muslim Brotherhood? What do they want, and why should we in Canada and the U.S. be concerned?

Founded in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood’s motto reads, “Allah is our objective; the Qur’an is our constitution, The Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.” Operationally, the Brothers have adopted the Leninist tactics of banned communist parties in the developing world.

However, if we are to believe the man President Barack Obama describes as his “principle intelligence advisor”, U.S. Department of National Intelligence head James Clapper, there is little to worry about.

At a congressional hearing in February, 2011, he told Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC), the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt was a “largely secular” group with “no overarching agenda in pursuit of violence.” Congresswoman Myrick appeared flabbergasted. She had just shown the DNI chief a document presented by the FBI at a 2008 Dallas terror-funding trial that had recorded minutes of a 1991 Brotherhood secret meeting held in the U.S.

If this is the advice Obama is getting from his “principle intelligence advisor,” it is no wonder, leading up to the Egyptian presidential elections, his administration played host to the Muslim Brotherhood in Washington and were earlier accused of holding secret meetings in Cairo with its senior leadership.

If the Brotherhood’s agenda just concerned the Egyptian people, we could ignore them.

However, like the Ayatollahs in Iran in 1979, wherever Islamists seize power, their ultimate objective is the destruction of the West, even when they are feeding off it.

The Muslim Brotherhood document produced by the FBI as evidence in the Dallas terror trial lists the group’s objective in North America as a “Civilization-Jihadist Process.”

It said: “The Ikhwan (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 hands and the hands of the believers (Muslims) so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

To this end, the Brothers call on Muslims “to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes.”

Some U.S. lawmakers suspect the Brotherhood may have infiltrated America’s intelligence networks, as well as the military. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and five other House members have sent letters to the Director of National Intelligence, the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security, seeking answers about the U.S. government’s involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Bachmann raises concerns about possible direct influences within the intelligence community of Muslim Brotherhood operatives.

Unfortunately, concerns about the Brothers’ agenda in North America are routinely dismissed as racism by the liberal-left media and intelligentsia.

One day the left will regret their policy of appeasement and recognize that their addiction to anti-Americanism has left them at the mercy of Islamo-fascism. They should ask their leftist colleagues in Iran about what that will mean — at least those who survived the bloodbath.

    I think it is time for the world to tell all radical islamists that “we” believe in “tit for tat”. For those radical islamists who do not know what that means, it means that whatever you do to us, non muslims, we will do to you. We intend to preserve our way of life which is peaceful, as opposed to your way of life which is death and murder to all, including yourselves.

    boy oh boy, this journalist must be working for the bilderberg group. he fails to mention that the muslim brotherhood was created in a round table session involving MI6 operatives. This journalist continues to propogate the BS propoganda of keeping the western public in a state of fear. He fails to mention that mohammid Morsi was American educated, and the whole arab spring event was to destabalize the middle east so that the lucifarian agenda of the west to launch WW3 can be achieved.

    What ever happened to journalistic integrity you schill? You are more worried about your paycheck than reporting the whole truth.

    The Mainstream Media is losing the information war

    Brian Lilley is now accepting Michele Bachmann as an ‘authority’ on Egypt. Well Brian, if you’ve taken your brain on holiday take your column with you. Michele Bachman is a rascist Tea Partier who never saw a smiling black face in a crowd she didn’t want arrested.

    Bachmann makes Sarah Palin look smart. And just how smart does that make you look Lilley to people who actually have an idea of what is unfolding on the international scene.

    Stop being so bloody lazy and dig our some decent sources for you information before you look as ignorant as Bachmann Maxwell

    Luke, your point is? David Maxwell, where exactly does this topic mention Michele Bachmann whom you slander without proof? Unless either of you can present some evidence that the Muslim Brotherhood is not a terrorist organisation, founded on terrorism, then I suggest you avoid commenting for your own sake.

    David Maxwell … It’s not Brian Lilley but Tarek Fatah who is the author of the article. Tarek Fatah is an authority on Egypt. Now, let’s see if you can apologize to Lilley for insulting him, if you have a modicum of decorum.
    However, I am not holding my breath. People who visit Conservative blogs for the sole purpose of spilling their hatred toward Right leaning people have a mental problem.
