The Silent Terrorists: Muslim Brotherhood's Political Terrorism Strategy
"The Ikhwan [Brotherhood] must understand 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 and the hands of the believers so that God's religion is made victorious over all other religions." from: An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.
While the world has been occupied with Islamist terrorism for over a decade, it has been overlooking the silent terrorists who execute their agenda through politics rather than bombs.
These silent terrorists have, it seems, been taking over the "Arab Spring" countries one by one while the world has done little even to try to stop them, lest such attempts be seen as obstructions of democracy.
Has the Muslim Brotherhood outwitted all of us? It has been quietly putting into place the same expansionist agenda as the militant terrorists -- to establish an fundamentalist Islamic realm -- except with plans to accomplish this by means of politics rather than explosives and machine guns.
Since Sheikh Hassan al-Banna founded the Muslim Brotherhood in 1928, it has been the embodiment of the Islamists' movements, and transparent about its mission: "God is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations."
Its goal, as stated by al-Banna is to establish a Muslim empire stretching from Spain to Indonesia. [Source: Davidson, Lawrence (1998) Islamic Fundamentalism Greenwood Press, Westport, Conn., ISBN 0-313-29978-1 pp. 97–98;]
Regrettably, these objectives entail destroying the Western Civilizations. As the Muslim Brotherhood document, "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America," openly states: "The Ikhwan [Brotherhood] must understand 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 and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions."
The Brotherhood's mid-course correction seeks to achieve its means by befriending people -- by means of lavish invitations, or payments to lobbyists or promises of opulent permanent employment or of significant donations -- to be introduced among in the topmost circles of influence in the nations being groomed for hollowing out. From there it is simple enough over smiles and good food, to proceed, as favors are granted by new friends. Meanwhile, the motto and mission statement never change; enemies are confused with friends, and attempts to silence of free speech -- such as Yale University's refusal to show the Mohammed Cartoons in a book on them by Jytte Klausen it published, possibly lest their appearance jeopardize a donation of millions being dangled before them; or the US and European legitimization of the "Istanbul Process." a serious of conferences requested the by the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation which has been seeking to have the United Nations internationally criminalize discussion of Islam -- are confused with charming cultural quirks.
The US would do well to wake up to the truth of the Muslim Brotherhood's real agenda; its strategy seems to be paying off.

To understand what drives a young Palestinian to carry out such a deadly attack, one needs to look at the statements of Palestinian Authority leaders during the past few weeks.
The anti-Israel campaign of incitement reached its peak with Abbas's speech at the UN a few weeks ago, when he accused Israel of waging a "war of genocide" in the Gaza Strip. Abbas made no reference to Hamas's crimes against both Israelis and Palestinians.
Whatever his motives, it is clear that the man who carried out the most recent attack, was influenced by the messages that Abbas and the Palestinian Authority leadership have been sending their people.

Would General Allen -- or any other general today -- recommend contracting out his country's defenses if it were his country at stake? Of course not.
The Iranian regime remains dedicated to undermining and ultimately destroying the State of Israel. The Islamic State also has Israel in its sights and would certainly use the West Bank as a point from which to attack, if it were open to them.
There can be no two-state solution and no sovereign Palestinian Arab state west of the Jordan, however desirable those things might be. The stark military reality is that Israel cannot withdraw its forces from the West Bank.
Fatah leaders ally themselves with the terrorists of Hamas, and, like Hamas, they continue to reject the every existence of the State of Israel.
If Western leaders actually want to help, they should use all diplomatic and economic means to make it clear to the Palestinians that they will never achieve an independent and sovereign state while they remain set on the destruction of the State of Israel.

The Palestine Liberation Organization [PLO], forerunner of today's Palestinian Authority, was founded in 1964, three years before Israel came into the unintended control of the West Bank and Gaza. What therefore was the PLO planning to "liberate"?
Why does no one expect the Palestinians to cease all deliberate and random violence against Israeli civilians before being considered for admission to statehood?
On June 30, 1922, a joint resolution of both Houses of Congress of the United States endorsed a "Mandate for Palestine," confirming the right of Jews to settle anywhere they chose between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. This is the core American legacy of support for a Jewish State that President Obama now somehow fails to recall.
A sovereign state of Palestine, as identified by the Arabs -- a Muslim land occupied by "Palestinian" Arabs -- has never existed; not before 1948, and not before 1967. From the start, it was, and continues to be, the Arab states -- not Israel -- that became the core impediment to Palestinian sovereignty.

It looks as if this new law is meant to serve as a severe roadblock to parties that would like to dismantle the EU in a democratic and peaceful way from within.
A rather dull semantic trick pro-EU figures usually apply, is calling their opponents "anti-Europe."
