The document is provided in Arabic and English, and includes a very interesting distribution list. I urge those concerned about the future of the United States and Canada to read the entire document and distribute it as widely as possible.
The document begins by laying out a road map outlining stages and goals. In many respects, it doesn’t differ all that much than similar plans generated by any proselytizing religion… until you read the chilling “Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America,” parts of which are highlighted in red…
Subject: A project for an explanatory memorandum for the General Strategic goal for the Group in North America mentioned in the long-term plan
One: The Memorandum is derived from:
1 – The general strategic goal of the Group in America which was approved by the Shura Council and the Organizational Conference for the year [I987] is “Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning: establishing an effective and a stable Islamic Movement led by theMuslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims’ efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is”.
Two: An Introduction to the Explanatorv Memorandum:
…The question we are facing is: “How do you like to see the Islam Movement in North America in ten years?”, or “taking along” the following sentence when planning and working, “Islamic Work in North America in the year (2000): A Strategic Vision”. Also, we must summon and take along “elements” of the general strategic goal of the Group in North America and I will intentionally repeat them in numbers. They are:
l- Establishing an effective and stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood.
2- Adopting Muslims’ causes domestically and globally.
3- Expanding the observant Muslim base.
4- Unifying and directing Muslims’ efforts.
5- Presenting Islam as a civilization alternative
6- Supporting the establishment of the global Islamic State wherever it is].
Three: The Concept of Settlement:
This term was mentioned in the Group’s “dictionary” and documents with various meanings in spite of the fact that everyone meant one thing with it. We believe that the understanding of the essence is the same and we will attempt here to give the word and its “meanings” a practical explanation with a practical Movement tone, and not a philosophical linguistic explanation, while stressing that this explanation of ours is not complete until our explanation of “the process” of settlement itself is understood which is mentioned in the following paragraph. We briefly say the following:
Settlement: “That Islam and its Movement become a part of the homeland it lives in”.
Establishment: “That Islam turns into firmly rooted organizations on whose bases civilization, structure and testimony are built”.
Stability: “That Islam is stable in the land on which its people move”.
Enablement: “That Islam is enabled within the souls, minds and the lives of the people of the country in which it moves”.
Rooting: “That Islam is resident and not a passing thing, or rooted “entrenched” in the soil of the spot where it moves and not a strange plant to it”.
Four: The Process of Settlement: – In order for Islam and its Movement to become “a part of the homeland” in which it lives, “stable” in its land, “rooted” in the spirits and minds of its people, “enabled” in the live of its society and has firmly-established “organizations” on which the Islamic structure is built and with which the testimony of civilization is achieved, the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain “the keys” and the tools of this process in carry out this grand mission as a “Civilization Jihadist” responsibility which lies on the shoulders of Muslims and – on top of them – the Muslim Brotherhood in this country. Among these keys and tools are the following: 1- Adopting the concept of settlement and understanding its practical meanings: The Explanatory Memorandum focused on the Movement and the realistic dimension of the process of settlement and its practical meanings without paying attention to the difference in understanding between the resident and the non-resident, or who is the settled and the non-settled and we believe that what was mentioned in the long-term plan in that regards suffices.
3- Understanding the historical stages in which the Islamic Ikhwani activism went through in this country:
The writer of the memorandum believes that understanding and comprehending the historical stages of the Islamic activism which was led and being led by the Muslim Brotherhood in this continent is a very important key in working towards settlement, through which the Group observes its march, the direction of its movement and the curves and turns of its road. We will suffice here with mentioning the title for each of these stages …Most likely, the stages are:
A- The stage of searching for self and determining the identity.
B- The stage of inner build-up and tightening the organization.
C- The stage of mosques and the Islamic centers.
D- The stage of building the Islamic organizations – the first phase.
E- The stage of building the Islamic schools – the first phase.
F- The stage of thinking about the overt Islamic Movement – the first phase.
G- The stage of openness to the other Islamic movements and attempting to reach a formula for dealing with them – the first phase.
H- The stage of reviving and establishing the Islamic organizations – the second phase. We believe that the Group is embarking on this stage in its second phase as it has to open the door and enter as it did the first time.
4- Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America:
The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the word means. The Ikhwan 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. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal. […]
Now consider Barack Obama’s recent actions – admitting tens of thousands of Muslim refugees, for instance, while deporting Iraqi Christians – and let me know what you conclude.
