A UH student reported that he’d gotten a facebook invitation to attend this event last Saturday in Sugar Land:
Warm up with a cup of Hot Chocolate!
Brought to you by CY’s Kindness Project
There were several Muslim young men and women in Sugar Land’s Town Square last Saturday, preparing hot chocolate for passers-by. They appeared to be friendly and outgoing, kind and thoughtful young people. They were with the Crescent Youth group.
The young women were mingling with the passers-by, especially the young folks near to them in age. They seemed to be engaging in dawah (inviting others to Islam). And what’s wrong with that? Many other faith groups do missionary work. (Of course, other faiths do not give outsiders the option of submit or die- but let’s don’t quibble.)
Here’s the problem: the Crescent Youth group has connections to the nefarious Muslim Brotherhood. Remember them?
The Muslim Brotherhood’s credo: “God is our objective, the Koran is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, struggle [jihad] is our way, and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations.”
From Muslim Brotherhood founder Hasan al Banna: ”Jihad is an obligation from Allah on every Muslim and cannot be ignored nor evaded.”
And: “It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”
During the course of the Holy Land Foundation trial (held in Texas), many incriminating documents were entered into evidence. Perhaps the most significant of these was “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” by the Muslim Brotherhood operative Mohamed Akram.
Written sometime in 1987 but not formally published until May 22, 1991, this 18-page document listed the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded “organizations of our friends” that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Muslim nation. These “friends” were identified by Akram and the Brotherhood as groups that could help convince Muslims “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 … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”
Akram was well aware that in the U.S., it would be extremely difficult to promote Islam by means of terror attacks. Thus the “grand jihad” that he and his Brotherhood comrades envisioned was not a violent one involving bombings and shootings, but rather a stealth (or “soft”) jihad aiming to impose Islamic law (Sharia)over every region of the earth by incremental, non-confrontational means, such as working to “expand the observant Muslim base”; to “unif[y] and direc[t] Muslims’ efforts”; and to “present Islam as a civilization alternative.” At its heart, Akram’s document details a plan to conquer and Islamize the United States – not as an ultimate objective, but merely as a stepping stone toward the larger goal of one day creating “the global Islamic state.”
And who are these “friends” mentioned above? One mentioned within the Crescent Youth website is the Muslim Student Association- MSA.
“It should be the long-term goal of every MSA to Islamicize the politics of their respective university … the politicization of the MSA means to make the MSA more of a force on internal campus politics. The MSA needs to be a more ‘In-your-face’ association … For example, the student body must be convinced that there is such a thing as a Muslim-bloc.” TheGuide further advises: “Aim to rise within the ranks of the Union [student government] and to get on selected executive committees … I cannot stress this enough, the Union has vast powers that Muslims need to control.”
In its quest for increased influence, MSA devotes many of its efforts and resources to the practice of da’wa — i.e., proselytization which consists of “inviting” non-Muslims, or “infidels,” to join the Islamic faith. Nyack College theologian Larry A. Poston characterizes MSA as “undoubtedly the most activist of the da’wa organizations in America.” In January 2005, former MSA UCLA member Ahmed Shama said:
“The only justification … that Muslims have to live in this country is da’wa…. [I]f we are not doing something to invite people to Islam, Muslims and non-Muslims, then we are missing the point what Islamic Movement is about…. The end goal of everything I was talking about is the establishment of, the reestablishment of, Islamic form of government.”
In 2007, MSA National’s website featured a document entitled, “Da’wa: Time to Come Out of Our Boxes,” advising MSA members to strategically adapt their da’wa to the particular cultural sensibilities of North Americans. (Hot chocolate anyone? -ed.) For example: “Instead of using ‘Holy War’ to translate the word Jihad, use a more comprehensive and proper term like, ‘struggle’ or ‘striving’… Try to use language that is more appealing to North Americans.”

And then we have the Muslim American Society- MAS. The MAS was founded in 1992 for the purpose of promoting “Islam as a total way of life” and has stated that American foreign policy is to blame for the 9/11 attacks.
Founded in 1992, the Muslim American Society (MAS) describes itself as “a charitable, religious, social, cultural and educational, not-for-profit … Islamic organization.” In 2004, MAS secretary-general Shaker Elsayed said that his organization had been founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood.
MAS, like the Muslim Brotherhood, wishes to see the United States governed by sharia, or Islamic law. ”The message that all countries should be ruled by Islamic law,” writes Gartenstein-Ross, “is echoed throughout MAS’s membership curriculum. For example, MAS requires all its adjunct members to read Fathi Yakun’s book To Be a Muslim. In that volume, Yakun spells out his expansive agenda: ‘Until the nations of the world have functionally Islamic governments, every individual who is careless or lazy in working for Islam is sinful.’”
The Crescent Youth organization is listed on the MAS site here: http://www.mashouston.org/links.aspx
The Crescent Youth group is also connected to CAIR- the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
CAIR is a “civil rights” group partially funded by the Saudi Wahhabi establishment and has numerous ties to extremist Islamic organizations.
CAIR promotes a radical Islamic vision, as evidenced by the fact that its co-founder Omar Ahmad told a Fremont, California audience in July 1998: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran … should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” In a similar spirit, co-founder Ibrahim Hooper told a reporter in 1993: “I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future.” In 2003 Hooper stated that if Muslims ever become a majority in the United States, they will likely seek to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law, which they deem superior to man-made law. In the late 1980s, Ihsan Bagby, who would later become a CAIR Board member, stated that Muslims “can never be full citizens of this country,” referring to the United States, “because there is no way we can be fully committed to the institutions and ideologies of this country.”

The Crescent Youth appear attractive and friendly, only wanting to share a cup of hot chocolate with their neighbors. However, their many connections and affiliations with various Muslim Brotherhood groups- and there are still more- can only lead us to believe they share the same goals as CAIR, the MSA, the MAS, and so on. Don’t be deceived.
