The Deception By America's Islamists

Have you ever heard someone say..."well, you can't compare the Muslims here in America to those overseas that are doing all of that killing and bombing?"   Well, the fact of the matter is that the Muslims in America are all about deception - the silent jihad, the tactical jihad to implode America from within is based on deception and flying under the radar.

This article from Radical Islam chronicles the deception.  Pass the word along.  Get wise, America.

Islamist Interfaith Deception in Virginia

Last month, a new mosque called the ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) Islamic Center opened in Alexandria, Virginia. ICNA, an Islamist group with origins in the Jamaat-e-Islami of Pakistan, framed its inauguration as an interfaith victory, giving thanks to the three churches that let them worship on their premises as the mosque project was completed.

The two-story mosque replaced a house that was bought by ICNA in 2000. It says the facility cost $850,000 to build and can accommodate about 150 people. Good Shepherd Catholic Church, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and Aldersgate United Methodist Church allowed ICNA’s Northern Virginia chapter to worship as the mosque was being built

ICNA’s use of Aldersgate United Methodist Church led to a favorable segment on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, which praised its pastor and mocked an evangelical critic. In one scene, the critic is seen saying mosques wouldn’t allow their premises to be used for Christian prayers. The correspondent joked about how embarrassing it’d be for him if the show cut to a clip of Christians being invited to a mosque.

Ironically, the clip shown on the Daily Show featured Mohammed El-Filali of the Islamic Center of Passaic County, a mosque with extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. El-Filali led a chant comparing Israeli Prime Minister Sharon to Hitler at a rally in 2002. He also refused to condemn Palestinian suicide bombers in an interview with the Associated Press.

The pro-ICNA churches and the Daily Show apparently didn’t take the time to pop ICNA’s name into a search engine. If they did, it wouldn’t have taken long to find documentation of the group’s Islamist history.

Its origins lie with a Pakistani Islamist group called Jamaat-e-Islami. ICNA’s own publication said in 1996 that it was founded with the “organizational development methodology” of Jamaat-e-Islami’s founder. A former ICNA president and secretary-general, Ashrafuzzaman Khan, was indicted by Bangladesh’s International Crimes Tribunal in October for his role as “chief executioner” in at least 18 horrific and brutal political assassinations in 1971. Khan belonged to the student wing of Jamaat-e-Islami.

A 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood strategic memorandum, which says its “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within,” lists ICNA as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” The memo refers to productive meetings between ICNA and the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood “in an attempt to reach a unity of merger.” ICNA has long held its annual conferences in conjunction with the Muslim American Society, an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, in apparent fulfillment of this objective.

ICNA has not abandoned its Islamist ideology since then. Its 2010 handbook laid out a five-level strategy towards achieving a “united Islamic state, governed by an elected khalifah in accordance with the laws of shari’ah (Islamic law),” right in line with the Muslim Brotherhood doctrine of gradualism. Its last conference in December featured at least a dozen Islamist speakers, including ones that have supported Hamas and have ties to the Brotherhood. (Among the event’s sponsors were Turkish Airlines and the DISH Network.)

ICNA and its Islamist allies understand the power of the interfaith message. Interfaith relations have become a more prominent feature on their websites and their conferences. For example, American Muslims for Palestine had Reverend Donald Wagner of Evangelicals for Middle East Understanding speak at its conference. Major campaigns of activism are done with interfaith coalitions.

Another interfaith campaign ICNA is involved in is the placement of billboards in the Orlando and Daytona Beach areas that say, “Same Family, Same Message.” It directs readers to ICNA’s website, These billboards aren’t just about making Jews, Christians and Muslims feel like they can relate to each other. It’s about dawah. The basis of Islam is that Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammed are part of the same family with the same message from Allah. Islam is, in this view, the way all three faiths are hemmed together.

The "interfaith outreach" carried out by American Islamists runs contrary to the bloody images of the destruction of churches by Islamist terrorists. When Islamists in America (like ICNA) wear suits and ties and talk "interfaith," they appear to be the alternative Muslim voice we seek.

To be “moderate” is as simple as condemning terrorism and shaking hands with a pastor, and if you oppose this type of interfaith engagement and say something, then the uninformed see you as intolerant, paranoid and bigoted.

Unfortunately, for most Americans, it is easier to believe that critics of ICNA are fear-mongers than to believe that these groups can simultaneously be likeable, charitable and non-violent as well as deceptive and Islamist.

America can be so stupid. First and foremost anyone who thinks there is such a thing as a peaceful muslim needs their head examined. As for these pastors giving aid and comfort to teh enemy (note the term) well they will get what they sow. Why are we so stupid about this, howm do we let ourselves be told they are peaceful when groups like this with their history work their ways into pour churches. Muslims know we are stupid but we dont. Smarten up America start asking the hard questions and dont let people like Stuart ridicule or stop you. they are just talking heads nothing more and not an original thought in their heads.
