An educational guide produced by the Chicago chapter of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) demolishes the group’s pretenses that it’s moderate. The book, produced for ICNA members, tells Muslims to wage jihad to conquer the West and establish shariaand repeatedly references the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood as a source.
ICNA’s annual convention is one of the largest Muslim-American events year. The group is part of a newly formed Islamist coalitionthat hopes to unite Muslims into a single voting bloc. Its “moderate” presentation is so effective that it has formed partnerships withchurches. ICNA’s own internal documents conflict with its contrived image.
The training guide produced by the Tarbiyah Department of ICNA’s Chicago chapter was provided to the Clarion Project by former FBI Special Agent John Guandolo.
The book repeatedly references Hassan al-Banna, the extremist founder of the Muslim Brotherhood and Sayyid Qutb, a Brotherhood cleric whose teachings inspired Osama Bin Lden.
That makes sense since ICNA was named in a 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” The stated goal of the Brotherhood network in the U.S. was to wage “a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within…”
Here are just some of the shocking quotes from the book:
Jihad is presented to the West as primarily an internal struggle. The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) – another U.S. Muslim Brotherhood organization – recently waged a public relations campaign called “My Jihad,” in which jihad was described as “struggle against barriers and odds in search of a better place.” Examples included “building friendships across the aisle,” and “always pursue new ideas and conquer new challenges.”
However, ICNA’s guide teaches that jihad is the fight against forces that “oppose the Islamic Call” and the waging of war so that only the “evil sovereignty of beings other than Allah is wiped out.” (p. 117)
On Defeating the West
ICNA’s guide quotes Muslim Brotherhood founder Hasan Al-Banna, who summarized the Islamic movement’s general task of universal outreach as “standing against the flood of civilization.” Al-Banna further says that Western secularism “delayed [the Muslim world’s] advancement for centuries” and that Muslims must “pursue this evil force to its own lands, invade its Western heartland.”
According to ICNA, quoting al-Banna again, the “struggle” must be continued “until … the teachings of Islam spread throughout the world. Only then will Muslims achieve their fundamental goal, and there will be no more ‘persecution’ and all religion will be exclusively for Allah.” (p. 192)…

Want to know what our Islamist enemies have in mind for America? Look at Europe.
Virtually every country there has found itself under siege from Muslims seeking to impose the supremacist Islamic doctrine they call shariah on everyone else. The preeminent organization promoting this agenda is the Muslim Brotherhood, now banned as a terrorist group in its home country of Egypt, but prospering in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in what has been known as the Free World. In fact, as Egyptian courts hand down death sentences to those engaged with the Brotherhood’s violent efforts to overthrow the government there, ours is opening the door to asylum for those who have only engaged in “limited” material support for terrorism.
More insidious than the Muslim Brotherhood’s violence, however, is its stealthy subversion. In a 1991 strategic plan introduced into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial, a senior Brother named Mohammed Akram described this form of warfare as “civilization jihad.”
In Akram’s words, the goal of the Brotherhood’s civilization jihadists is “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within…so that God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” His “Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” lays out how this ambitious goal is to be achieved under our noses by penetrating and subverting “from within” the West’s civil society and governing institutions.
The London Telegraph reports that this campaign has just scored a major success in Great Britain. That country’s trade association for lawyers, the Law Society, has declared its members can begin drawing up shariah-compliant wills that will be enforceable in British common law courts….

Textbooks In Pakistani Government Schools Teaching Hate Against Christians And Hindus, Jihad And Martyrdom To Young Students
(I’m wondering…do the Pakistani mosques and schools in the Houston area teach hate?)
By: Tufail Ahmad
This paper examines the role of school textbooks in promoting hate against religious minorities in Pakistan. On September 22, 2013, more than 80 Christians were killed and hundreds wounded when two Taliban suicide bombers targeted worshippers as they were leaving after a Sunday mass at the 130-year old All Saints’ church in Peshawar, the capital of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party which governs the province, slammed the attackers but in the same breath asked: “why do terrorist attacks occur when dialogue is on the table?” – the insinuation being that foreign forces planned the attack to sabotage Pakistan’s peace negotiations with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).
Jundul Hafsa, a militant outfit which functions as part of the Hakimullah Mehsud-led TTP, claimed responsibility for the attack. Ahmad Marwat, the group’s spokesman, said the following about Christians: “They are the enemies of Islam; therefore we target them… We will continue our attacks on non-Muslims on Pakistani land.” There are 200,000 Christians in the province and of them 70,000 live in Peshawar. Such hate against Christians is the result of decades of teachings in government-run schools across Pakistan.
In Pakistan, where Islamist groups are launching regular attacks against non-Muslim Pakistanis like Christians and Hindus as well as some sects of Muslims such as Shi’ites and Ahmadi Muslims, whom they do not consider to be real Muslims, the official and unofficial media, government leaders and religious scholars have legitimized hate against religious minorities, with the term “minority” itself having come to be seen in a pejorative context. As a result of such legitimization of hate through school textbooks, government policies, sermons in mosques and religious congregations, there is growing persecution of Pakistani Christians, Hindus, Shias and Ahmadi Muslims. In September 2012, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) released a paper by this author, cataloguing Islamist and jihadi attacks against these minority groups and underlining the need to put Pakistan on international genocide watch.
After the September 22 church attack, senior Pakistani journalist Aamer Ahmed Khan commented on the Pakistani elite’s silence in condemning such attacks on minorities in unequivocal terms, stating: “This silence of our ruling elite is itself the real Talibanism.”In Pakistan, the federal government and the provincial government headed by Imran Khan’s party in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are engaged in talks with the Taliban. Their ministers are publicly seen as silent in their criticism of jihadi groups and the TTP. In turn, the Taliban are emboldened. In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the PTI-led government has recently been in the news for initiating policies to restore jihadi lessons in school textbooks which were removed as part of reforms by the previous government of the secular Awami National Party (ANP). “What kind of sovereignty, freedom, and Islamic values are these when Islamic teachings, jihad, and national heroes are removed from textbooks? Jihad is part of our faith. We will not back down (from our decision),” Shah Farman, the information minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, told reporters on August 21, 2013.
Pakistani Journalist Maheen Usmani: “14-Year-Old Students Of Pakistan Studies Are Being Taught: ‘One Of The Reasons For The Downfall Of The Muslims… Was The Lack Of The Spirit Of jihad’”; “13-Year-Olds Are Instructed: ‘In Islam, Jihad Is Very Important’”
Throughout Pakistan’s history, since its creation in 1947, hate speech against non-Muslims has been a normal phenomenon in Pakistani society….
