Excerpts from the excellent Point de Bascule
When Mohammedans talk about Â«transforming realityÂ», they state their intention to implement sharia principles.
In order to determine the specifics of Tariq Ramadan’s “more just and ethical world”, it is important to know that Youssef Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood spiritual guide, is his mentor. In his bookÂ Radical Reform, Ramadan describes Qaradawi as a “prominent scholar”Â who has outlined the attitudes and the kind of behaviour that Muslims living in the West should adopt.
In recent years, Qaradawi’s “principles of ethics” have led him toÂ advocateÂ for the conquest of the West by Muslims, toÂ condoneÂ female genital mutilations, to claim that Hitler was sent by Allah to punish the Jews (video), to endorseÂ suicide bombings, toÂ promoteÂ the killing of Muslims who leave Islam (apostates), etc.
This is what Tariq Ramadan, MAC and the Muslim Brotherhood’s “more just and ethical world” looks like.
Recently, Qaradawi even stated that, without the punishment against apostasy, “Islam wouldn’t exist today”.
MAC implements the Muslim Brotherhood program in Canada.
On itsÂ own website, it states that its “modern roots can be traced to the Islamic revival of the early twentieth century, culminating in the movement of the Muslim Brotherhood … MAC adopts and strives to implement Islam … as understood in its contemporary context by the late Imam, Hassan Albanna (1906-1949), the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
In hisÂ 50-point manifesto, Hassan al-Banna urges his supporters to abolish political parties and replace them by a single party system. He favours the modification of laws so that they conform to sharia and calls for the multiplication of associations dedicated to promoting the spirit of jihad amongst the youth.
In his essayÂ On Jihad, al-Banna explains that “it’s an obligation for us (Muslims) to fight against them (the infidels) after inviting them (to join Islam), even if they do not fight against us”.
In another text (To what Do We Invite Humanity?), Hassan al-Banna refers to Adolf Hitler as a role model for Muslims looking for “success and fortune”.
According toÂ GMBDR, a website monitoring the Muslim Brotherhood around the world, MAC and Hamas (Charter –Â Article 2) are among the rare sections of the network openly acknowledging their links with the Brotherhood.
From 2001 to 2010, MAC transferred $296,514 to IRFAN-Canada, Hamas’ fund collector in the country. In April 2011, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) revoked IRFAN’s status after having concluded that, for the period 2005-2009 alone, it transferred $14.6 million to the terrorist organization Hamas (GMBDRÂ –Â Toronto Star).
Hamas’ leaders frequently advocate for an Islamic conquest of the West (2008Â –Â 2011Â –Â 2012) and the terrorist organization has vowed to wage jihad against Israel until it is wiped off the map (Charter –Â Article 13).
In spite of its charitable status that forbids involvement in politics, MAC radicalizes the Muslim community by regularly inviting in Canada foreign Islamist leaders who promote the implementation of sharia in the country.
Tariq Ramadan is one of these speakers invited by MAC. In a 2004Â interviewÂ granted to an Egyptian magazine, Tariq Ramadan enjoined Islamist leaders operating in Canada to use the flexibility of the Canadian legal framework to their advantage and introduce sharia in the country. Ramadan warned that “for the time being”, it would be preferable not to openly mention the termÂ shariaÂ in Canada while doing so. “The term shariah in itself is laden with negative connotations in the Western mind. There is no need to stress that”, he concluded.
In 2011 in Dallas, Tariq Ramadan enjoined his supporters to “coloniz(e) the United States of AmericaÂ … with our understanding of Islam, our principles.” Brian Lilley recently presented this excerpt during aÂ SUN TVÂ show dedicated to Justin Trudeau’s participation at the RIS 2012 Islamist convention.
In an internal memorandum that was seized by police and produced for evidentiary purposes in the 2007-2008 Holy Land Foundation trials, the Muslim Brotherhood clearly sums up its goal in North America:
Point 4.4Â 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… It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes.
