America is Target #1 for the
Global Jihad Movement
Mosques: command & control centers
Refugee Resettlement & the Hijra to
the West - including America
USCMO: 1st US political action group
openly affiliated w/jihadist MB

What Is The Global Jihad
Movement?
Forces of jihad and all who support it
for the purpose of imposing shariah
Objective: destroy Westphalian
nation state system, replace w/
Caliphate under Islamic Law
First comes Dawah, then Jihad

Why Now?
Decline of the West: loss of pride,
purpose, willingness to defend itself
Withdrawal of American influence,
power from world leadership
Post-modernist, progressive,
multicultural, value-neutral
Weltanschauung

‘Who Are We?’
America is Athens, Rome, Jerusalem
‘A Shining City on a Hill’ – John Winthrop
American Exceptionalism makes us the
new Chosen People
Immigrants, settlers fled oppression,
seeking equal opportunity, tolerance
Human rights are God-given,
‘inalienable’
Separation of faith & state

America’s Loss of Identity
Cultural traditions, our history, normative
values attacked by moral relativism,
‘progressive’ multiculturalism
Abandonment of Judeo-Christian bedrock
lays open society to any ‘-ism’
Failure to celebrate American
exceptionalism will lead to its loss

What Is Islam?
A complete way of life: Islam means
‘submission’
A socio-political system governed by
a strict juridical framework called
‘shariah’ & spread by Da’wah & jihad
A belief & faith system that uses
religious terminology but relies on
force to convert & expand

What Is A Mosque?
Nerve center of
a Muslim
community

Islamic
beachhead in
enemy territory

House of prayer,
worship,
ceremony

Recruitment,
indoctrination &
training center

Place for
collection of
zakat

Command &
Control center
for jihad

What Does Islam Say a Mosque Is?

“The mosques are our
barracks, the domes our
helmets, the minarets our
bayonets and the faithful
our soldiers…” -- Turkish
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s version of an
earlier poem

About Mosques
One of best
authorities is
Sam Solomon,
Islamic scholar
& jurist – and
former Muslim,
Christian
convert

2007 book by
Sam Solomon
2009 book by Sam
Solomon & Al Maqdisi

The ‘Settlement Process’
The process of settlement is a ‘Civilizational
Jihadist Process’ with all the word means.
The Ikhwan must understand that their work
in America is a kind of grand Jihad in
eliminating & destroying the Western
civilization from within & ‘sabotaging’ its
miserable house by their hands & the hands
of the believers so that it is eliminated &
God’s religion is made victorious over all
other religions’

--

An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic
Goal for the Group in North America

Muhammad
A Perfect Example

"Ye have indeed in the
Messenger of Allah a beautiful
pattern (of conduct) for any
one whose hope is in Allah
and the Final Day, and who
engages much in the Praise
of Allah.“ (Q 33:21)

A Muslim: One Who Emulates
Muhammad
Today’s mosques based on Muhammad’s
original mosque in Medina
Settled disputes, dispensed justice,
decided who punished, executed
Instituted policy, domestic & military
Developed Jihad war strategy
– Arms depot
– Training center
– Troops dispatched from mosque to set
forth on conquest

Mosques As Symbols of Conquest
Historically,
Islamic mosques
are built on top
of ruins of
conquered
people’s holy
places – or those
places are
converted into
mosques

Hagia
Sophia,
Istanbul,
Turkey

Hindu
inscriptions
at Quwwat
ul-Islam
Mosque

Non-Muslim Ruins Sign from Allah
Obliterating everything that is not
Muslim shows Allah’s punishment for
those who rejected his ‘truth’
Many were the Ways of Life that have
passed away before you: travel
through the earth, and see what was
the end of those who rejected Truth.
(Qur’an 3:137)

Why They Call it “Cordoba”
Cordoba: Islamic
Caliphate hqs in alAndalus (711-1248 CE)
Cordoba Mosque built on
top of Christian Visigoth
Cathedral
“Golden Age” for
Muslims; dhimmitude for
Christians & Jews
1011 CE Cordoba pogrom
massacred thousands of
Jews

Islamic Complex at Ground
Zero
$100m mosque complex
planned for two blocks
from Ground Zero
Hallowed ground where
9/11 wheel assembly fell
Funding from Malaysia,
other Muslim countries
13-story mosque &
community center planned

IN YOUR FACE,
AMERICA

Shari’a Commands Expansion to Unify
Ummah
When Muslim
numbers sufficient,
aggressive
expansion into
non-Muslim space
begins
Building of
mosques, schools,
public display of
numbers in places
of importance to
non-Muslims

Muslims Occupying
Milan Cathedral Plaza

Claiming Space for Islam
Muslims routinely
block public streets
in France for prayer
They’re doing it in
America, too
Anyplace Muslims
pray together is
henceforward
sacred space

Brotherhood seeks to co-opt AfricanAmerican civil rights narrative
Conscious identification w/
marginalization, oppression,
victimization narrative
MB objective: build coalitions, effect
legislative change to weaken antiterrorism laws, weaken ability of LLE
to perform CT duties under ‘civil
rights’ camouflage

“The reality is that this country, in law
enforcement, be it local, state or
federal law enforcement, people with
guns have always seen black men and
black people as threats,” Dawud
Walid, executive director of CAIR’s
Michigan Chapter, told some 100
protest organizers on a conference
call, made on the Nov 2014 five-year
anniversary of Detroit mosque leader

What Must We Do?
Learn the Enemy Threat Doctrine: that
means Study Islamic Doctrine
Confront the enemy’s genuine intent,
motivations – not just violent capabilities
Conduct study & analysis based on the
enemy’s actual characteristics—not what
we’d like them to be in a PC world

Civic Action to Defend the Constitution
Number one: self-education
Participate: call-in radio shows, op-ed
pieces for local media, civic groups, online
Remain alert: follow local legislation,
property zoning hearings, political
campaigns
Engage with schools: PTOs, guest
speaker programs, monitor textbooks
Faith-based: help suggest/plan programs,
speakers – resist interfaith dialogue

Enforce Our Laws
“Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets,
advises, or teaches the duty, necessity,
desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or
destroying the government of the United States
…shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not
more than twenty years, or both, and shall be
ineligible for employment by the United States or
any department or agency thereof, for the five
years next following his conviction.”
(18 USC Section 2385)

Within our Society
Be proud of American achievements,
culture & heroes
Relearn our history & the history of
Western civ & teach it to our children
Honor the heroes who keep us free:
Founding Fathers, Medal of Honor
recipients, Navy Seals, Law Enforcement

Dhimmitude
Dhimmitude is a status of willing
submission to Islam—in return for life as
2nd class citizen
Dhimmitude is a status freely accepted: it
is acquiescence to being dominated
Dhimmitude doesn’t happen overnight – it
is slipped slowly, inexorably, over a
society that allows it to happen
The price of liberty is eternal vigilance
Thomas Jefferson
