Translation of 1995 Muslim Brotherhood Book Reveals Scope of Radical AgendaTopics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
A Jerusalem Post story today reports on a translation released Tuesday by Palestinian Media Watch of a 1995 book, Jihad is the Way ... the last of a five-volume work, The Laws of Da'wa by Mustafa Mashhur. The translation details the Brotherhood's objectives of advancing the global conquest of Islam and reestablishing the Islamic Caliphate, the public and private duties of jihad and the struggle Muslims must wage against Israel:
[...] "The Islamic ummah," it says, referring to the supranational community of Muslims, "can regain its power and be liberated and assume its rightful position which was intended by Allah, as the most exalted nation among men, as the leaders of humanity."Read the entire piece here ...
Elsewhere, it exhorts Muslims, "Know your status, and believe firmly that you are the masters of the world, even if your enemies desire your degradation."
[...] "One should know that it is not necessary that the Muslims repel every attack or damage caused by the enemies of Allah immediately, but [only] when ability and the circumstances are fit to it."
Jihad is the Way explicitly endorses the reinstatement of a worldwide Islamic regime.
Not exactly the kind of people that one wants to have involved in one's government, yet the Muslim Brotherhood is a group that the Obama administration has held secret meetings with to plan a post-Mubarak government.
