Muslim Brotherhood back in the News
Recently Michele Bachmann along with several other concerned legislators has requested an investigation into the influence the Muslim Brotherhood may have within certain federal agencies.
As expected Muslim congressman Keith Ellison is vigorously protesting such an investigation, as are several leading republicans such as John McCain. McCain’s opposition is the height of political correctness.
Let’s briefly review just who the Muslim Brotherhood is and what they claim they stand for.
After the demise of the Ottoman Empire at WWI, a pious Muslim named Hassan al-Banna had visions of resurrecting Islamic influence in the world. He founded what is now known as the Muslim Brotherhood. He said:
“We summon you to Islam…We believe that Islam is an all-embracing concept which regulates every aspect of life, adjudicating on every one of its concerns and prescribing for it a solid and rigorous order. It is the duty incumbent on every Muslim to struggle towards the aim of making every people Muslim and the whole world Islamic, so that the banner of Islam can flutter over the earth…”
The Muslim Brotherhood has indeed grown and spread globally and is presently the largest Islamic organization in the world. How does that affect America? Their charter and agenda includes:
“The Muslim 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…so that it is eliminated…”
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.”
The above confirms that Islam’s political agenda is inseparable from their religion.
Americans generally associate the Brotherhood with such organizations as Hezbollah, Hamas, and Al Qaeda, however, consider the following partial listing of other lesser known Islamic organizations presently operating in the United States.
· MSA Muslim Students Association
· MYNA Muslim Youth of North America
· NAIT North American Islamic Trust
· ISNA Islamic Society of North America
· MAS Muslim American Society
· AMC American Muslim Council
· CAIR Council on American Islamic Relations
· MAYA Muslim Arab Youth Association
· ICNA Islamic Circle of North America
· IIIT International Institute for Islamic Thought
So while Michele Bachmann’s suggested investigation into domestic influence of the Brotherhood is labeled as a ‘witch hunt’ the administration has in fact met with the Brotherhood at the Whitehouse.
Why doesn’t Keith Ellison along with President Obama simply address the American people before a joint session of Congress and openly denounce that part of the Brotherhood’s charter which states that they will destroy America from within. In addition both of them should be very willing to assist with an independent investigation of federal agencies so as to prove that Bachmann’s suspicions are totally unwarranted and unsubstantiated.
The current pending investigation will be history tomorrow, however, the issue of Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood will affect all generations until the end of the age through the great tribulation. That is not only scriptural; it is also the teachings of Islam. Remember the nations that will be involved in the final showdown between Abraham’s son of promise and his son of the bondwoman. There can only be one victor.
“For it is written that Abraham had two sons: the one by a bondwoman, the other by a freewoman. But he who was of the bondwoman was born according to the flesh, and he of the freewoman through promise…Now we brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise. But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now…the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.” Galatians 4:23-24, 28-30
The descendants of the son of the bondwoman, i.e., Ishmael are presently involved in the middle east uprising.
During this election season many believe this nation’s priorities are misplaced. Jesus succinctly addressed the priority issue while addressing scribes and Pharisees who He labeled hypocrites. They were placing more emphasis on pleasing men than on substance.
