One Response to “Hometown Happenings”

  1. I would love to have folks ask Kamal Saleem this question: “Is the Muslim Brotherhood in America our friend or foe? Please provide me with a link to the source material that supports your views on this.”

    I started asking “RINO” Sen. Burr (RINO-NC) this question in 2009 and he will not respond! Isn’t he still the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence chairman?

    We must start asking each and every politician representing us from the mayor to the president this question.

    The Muslim Brotherhood wrote a plan to infiltrate America and destroy us from within thus helping form a global caliphate, an Ummah ruled by Shariah/Islamic law. Here is a quote from their plan dated May 22, 1991, and a link to it! From the Explanatory Memorandum— the Muslim Brotherhood in America in its own words:
    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 [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 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.
