Guest Writer Dr. J.P. Sloane: The Phenomena of Cultural Jihad
Cultural Jihad refers to the struggle (jihad) of the modern day Muslim’s attempt to peacefully convert—by using a soft velvet gloved hand of peace—to bring about an overthrow of the world’s countries from within and molding them into a global Caliphate, or a world culture of Islamic Sharia Law, under a Caliph. A Caliph is an Islamic spiritual leader claiming succession from Muhammad—the equivalent in the West of the Catholic Church’s Pope who claims his succession from Christ through the apostle Peter.
Currently, Cultural Jihad is being implemented by the Muslim Brotherhood and their operatives, along with allies throughout the United States and Europe as evidenced by the Islamic Brotherhood’s infamous “Project” which we will address in more detail later.
On December 1, 1982, during a raid by government authorities in the Swiss village of Nada, an ominous 14 page document written in Arabic was found. The document listed a 12-point strategy outlined to “establish an Islamic government on earth.” This document has come to be known as The “Project.” The Swiss authorities said this unsigned document was allegedly drawn up by some “Islamic researchers” who were allied with the Muslim Brotherhood. The “Project” provides us with a close look at a relatively new assault upon the western world—an Islamic Cultural Jihad. Jihad means “struggle” and has been associated with Islamic violence for over a millennium against all things not Muslim.
Before you say this is an old document discovered over thirty years ago, consider that in the West we want instant gratification, while in the East life is much more measured and deliberate. Not only do Muslims understand the western culture they want to destroy, but through their observations, they have witnessed our impatient nature and have come to the conclusion that while we have the watches, they have the time.
One example would be the Islamic 1993 World Trade Center attack by the Muslim Brotherhood allies and Al-Qaeda that occurred over twenty years ago. Long after Americans put it out of their minds—eight years later (which is the maximum time we allow a president to hold office)—the World Trade Center was hit once again, only this time it was not a truck bomb in the lower parking garage, but two commandeered civilian jet airplanes which acted as bombs or missiles flown directly into the buildings and, unlike the event in 1993, this time the Islamists destroyed the Twin Towers completely.
This tradition of the so-called “religion of peace” has been carried out through the sword from the time of Muhammad until now. Some Islamic national flags contain one or two swords proudly blazoned across them. We also see the same thing on the Muslim Brotherhood’s logo.
The Homegrown Nation of Islam
To be fair, America has for many decades co-existed with Muslims in the form of Louis Farrakhan’s “Nation of Islam,” but the NOI began more as a African-American separatist movement in protest of the perceived “White Man’s Religion” and a protest against the collective memory of the American white slave owners of past centuries. Never mind that Christ never owned a slave—a claim their Prophet Muhammad (a Semite like Jesus) could never make—and that it was Muslims who enslaved their ancestors in Africa and sold them to the West. Slavery can never be justified, but in some circles historical facts are ignored and used as a power grab for political gain.
And because of Louie Farrakhan’s sermon in 2008 to congregants at a D.C. church where he said there is a “Mother Wheel, a heavily-armed spaceship the size of a city which will rain destruction on white America, but save those who embrace the Nation of Islam,” and then appears on nationwide television to defend his statement, most serious minded Muslims consider the Nation of Islam to be a marginal Islamic cult. This, however, does not negate the seriousness of the NOI mission in America and in no way marginalizes their influence on some black Americans and their alliances with other mainline Muslims.
As previously discussed, the disturbing pre 9/11 discovery of the “Project” shows how the Muslim Brotherhood has been planning a back door approach to conquering the world for Islam. It is a subtle approach—deception, infiltration and assimilation into western society including the subversion of power by coming along side judges and elected officials.
We are already seeing Muslims running for and attaining positions of power through political appointments and elections. Because this approach has been so successful, along with the aid of President Obama, we now have Muslims working in various positions of the United States Government.
In 2007, one of Farrakhan’s congregants, Keith Ellison (D-MN) became the first Nation of Islam converts to be elected to the House of Representatives, but he refused to be sworn in using a Bible. Instead he used Thomas Jefferson’s Koranthat President Jefferson had acquired to understand America’s new Muslim enemy before he sent the Marines “to the shores of Tripoli” to fight the Barbary Pirates. In some ways, we have Islam to thank for America’s navy.
In that same year, Andre Carson (D-IN), became the second Muslim elected to serve in the House of Representatives.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s “Project”
Below is a copy of the bullet points set forth by the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists in their quest to overthrow the United States, Canada and Europe through “Cultural Jihad!
While you read this ask yourself “Does some of this sound familiar?” and “Why the media hasn’t reported this?”
- Networking and coordinating actions between likeminded Islamist organizations;
- Avoiding open alliances with known terrorist organizations and individuals to maintain the appearance of “moderation;”
- Infiltrating and taking over existing Muslim organizations to realign them towards the Muslim Brotherhood’s collective goals;
- Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions, as long as it doesn’t conflict with shari’a law;
- Avoiding social conflicts with Westerners locally, nationally or globally, that might damage the long-term ability to expand the Islamist powerbase in the West or provoke a lash back against Muslims;
- Establishing financial networks to fund the work of conversion of the West, including the support of full-time administrators and workers;
- Conducting surveillance, obtaining data, and establishing collection and data storage capabilities;
- Putting into place a watchdog system for monitoring Western media to warn Muslims of “international plots fomented against them;”
- Cultivating an Islamist intellectual community, including the establishment of think-tanks and advocacy groups, and publishing “academic” studies, to legitimize Islamist positions and to chronicle the history of Islamist movements;
- Developing a comprehensive 100-year plan to advance Islamist ideology throughout the world;
- Balancing international objectives with local flexibility;
- Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations dedicated to Islamist ideals so that contact with the movement for Muslims in the West is constant;
- Involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratic
- ally-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations and labor unions;
- Instrumentally using existing Western institutions until they can be converted and put into service of Islam;
- Drafting Islamic constitutions, laws and policies for eventual implementation;
- Avoiding conflict within the Islamist movements on all levels, including the development of processes for conflict resolution;
- Instituting alliances with Western “progressive” organizations that share similar goals;
- Creating autonomous “security forces” to protect Muslims in the West;
- Inflaming violence and keeping Muslims living in the West “in a jihad frame of mind;”
- Supporting jihad movements across the Muslim world through preaching, propaganda, personnel, funding, and technical and operational support;
- Making the Palestinian cause a global wedge issue for Muslims;
- Adopting the total liberation of Palestine from Israel and the creation of an Islamic state as a keystone in the plan for global Islamic domination;
- Instigating a constant campaign to incite hatred by Muslims against Jews and rejecting any discussions of conciliation or coexistence with them;
- Actively creating jihad terror cells within Palestine;
- Linking the terrorist activities in Palestine with the global terror movement;
- Collecting sufficient funds to indefinitely perpetuate and support jihad around the world;
Obama’s Connection With the Brotherhood
In the December 22, 2012 Egypt’s Rose El-Youssef magazine, it was reported that at least six Muslim Brotherhood operatives working close to President Obama are members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Not all is as it seems with the Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama administration whose alleged purpose, according to reporter Elad Benan of Israel’s Arutz Sheva, is to influence U.S. policy.
In his article, Benan cites the operatives by name and position: Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
It is not just enough to realize that we are at war with a very savvy enemy—like a cancer—they have invaded our homeland. We must fight it!
We have the First Amendment in America which guarantees the freedom of religion. Unfortunately, the Founders could not have foreseen a religion that contains a governmental and Sharia Law system in one that does not allow it to peacefully coexist with the western Judeo-Christian concept of democracy. In fact, the very name of the Muslim religion, Islam, means submission and not “peace” as they would like you to believe.
In a democratic republic, the government submits to the people; in a Caliphate, the people submit to the government. According to Wikipedia, Caliphate (from the Arabic: خلافة khilāfa, meaning “succession”) is an Islamic state led by a supreme religious and political leader known as a caliph.
The problem with Islam is that it is incompatible with any type of Democratic government because Islam, by its very nature, is a theocratic totalitarian system of government—which is the antithesis of a democracy.
Mosques in America
Has anyone noticed the multimillion dollar Mosques popping up like mushrooms around the country? Where did small congregations get that kind of money? In an article titled, “Islam In America: Mosques See Dramatic Increase in Just Over a Decade, According to Muslim Survey,” we read that in the year 2000, just before the unwarranted attack upon America on 9/11, there were 1,625 mosques in the United States …with more than 900 new centers being established since 2000 which brings the amount of mosques to around 2,525; however, the article admits to …2,106 mosques in the United States, mostly located in or around big cities, with New York state and California alone having 503 mosques. The article also tells us that after the1980’s, the mosque growth in the United States grew 76%. Many of the mosques around the country are situated on large parcels of land and the mosques and their adjoining structures contradict the nominal size of their congregations. Yet millions of dollars are invested in each site! Where did they get the money?
Churches in America usually start in a small shopping center known as “store front churches” and these modest congregations grow slowly and usually move into an average size building after many years of growing, skimping and saving.
What about Muslims and their congregations? How do they compare with their Christian counterparts? According to the above referenced article:
- The number of mosques in urban areas is decreasing, while the number of mosques in suburban areas is increasing. In 2011, 28 percent of mosques were located in suburbs, up from 16 percent in 2000.
- The conversion rate per mosque has remained steady over the past two decades. In 2011, the average number of converts per mosque was 15.3. In 2000 the average was 16.3 converts per mosque.
- The average Friday prayer attendance was 353 compared to 292 in 2000.
Yet we see huge mosques being built all over the country. In an article by Eric Allen Bell, he points out that in the mid-sized community of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, with a population of 100,000 residents, which includes between 200-300 Muslim families, a 53,000 square foot mosque was constructed—a little over half the size of Notre Dame de Paris (94,920 sq. ft.) or about the same size as New York’s world famous Gothic structure, St. Peters Cathedral, which takes up a New York City block (two acres) and is 57,768 square feet—and holds 2,200 people! The article asks the provocative question, Why is it that after 9/11, mosque construction in America has nearly doubled?
Wouldn’t we all like to know?
How many of us are aware that in 2010, according to an article in Sharia Unveiled, Gil Guignat and Dr. Paul L. Williams report that President Obama had authorized an additional 80,000 Muslims to relocate to America and promised …to bring a minimum of 100,000 additional Muslims per year for the next 5 years.
If that is not cause enough for concern, consider a recent article by Daniel Greenfield, Frontpage Mag.com contributor. He informs us that the Obama Administration may be about to bring tens of thousands of Syrian refugees to America too. Greenfield warns:
Taking in Muslim refugees from Muslim civil wars in Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere has largely been a disaster. The original World Trade Center bombing happened in part because the United States was willing to host Egyptian Islamists who would have been arrested in their own country. And who exactly will (we) be taking in now?
If the Muslim Brotherhood Jihadists lose in Syria, their leaders will flee to Europe and America where they will suborn, undermine and plan acts of terror.
To which we would add that Al-Qaida, Hezbollah, and more of the Muslim Brotherhood are already here in politically sensitive areas of Washington, D.C.
With both of America’s borders as porous as Swiss cheese and the wholesale import of questionable Jihadists, we have taken our eye off of the internal danger, which is the disarmingly attractive, Islamic community outreach centers with their “Cultural Jihad” agenda.
As we have seen, we cannot rely on political parties since both the Bush and Obama Administrations have placed a politically correct positive spin on the Islamic “religion of peace” while turning a blind eye to the fundamentals of the faith that is encoded in the Qur’an and the Hadiths.
Can a true Qur’an reading and believing Muslim be a model American citizen and good neighbor to the Christian and Jewish family next door or across the street? What does the Qur’an teach a Muslim on how to behave in this matter? Many Muslims are good and loving people, just as most people are of all faiths are. The problem with Islam is in the fundamentals—or core beliefs—taught in its holy books (Qur’an and Hadiths). By our standards, what we consider to be peace-loving Muslims who interact agreeably with their Christian and Jewish neighbors, the Qur’an refers to as apostates (people who have corrupted/left their faith).
Islam is using a two pronged approach to accomplish its goal of world domination we have just discussed how it is using the velveteen gloved hand of peaceful Cultural Jihad. However, least we be lulled into a false sense of safety, let us be forewarned that Islam has not abandoned its historical use of the sword to further its means either. Under the Muslim’s velvet glove remains the iron fist of Islam.
The sad truth can be found in a 2014 Christianity.com article revealing in the twentieth century alone, more Christians had been killed than in all of history combined. Recently, Open Doors USA released its widely cited 2014 World Watch List, a report that highlights and ranks the 50 worst nations around the globe persecuting Christians. Frontpage Mag.com references Open Doors USA’s report:
A common denominator, a pattern, exists, one that is even more extensive than Open Doors implies. According to that organization’s communications director, Emily Fuentes, “of the 50 worst nations for persecution, 37 of them are Muslim,” or 74%.—this at the hand of the “religion of peace.”
Although we are coming from a Christian perspective we must also be aware of Islam’s teachings towards the Jews:
And well ye knew those amongst you who transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath: We said to them: “Be ye apes, despised and rejected (Sûrah 2:65 also Sûrah 5:60; and Sûrah 7:166).
O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust (Sûrah 5:51).
Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya (tax) with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. (Sûrah 9:29)
Perhaps we should reconsider joining our usual coffee klatch and have a tea party instead!
On the surface, Islam is like a beautiful placid lake, but beneath the calm and lovely waters swim the sharks.
