That is the conference I told you about here. Steve Emerson is the Executive Director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism and in this piece on ‘The Fall of Capitalism and the Rise of Islam’ conference we hear confirmation of what we have been saying in our “Stealth Jihad” category. Islamists want a worldwide Caliphate governed by Shariah law and are willing to die to get it. We contend they need Muslim immigration to pull it off.
OAK LAWN, Illinois — Hizb ut-Tahrir (HT), the international movement to re-establish an international Islamic state, or Caliphate, kicked off a new campaign to win American recruits Sunday afternoon in this Chicago suburb.
Here we go with the Muslim charity myth again. Muslims don’t even help fellow Muslim refugees in the Middle East.
According to Hizb ut-Tahrir, the world’s social and economic problems will not be fixed until the world is governed by Shariah and the government controls all major industries. Lenders would no longer be able to charge interest, which one speaker decried as a “poisonous concept.” Charity, or zakat, was advertised as the way to alleviate “economic inequality.”
Here is another point confirmed—Islam is more important than a good life. I tried to explain that last evening to a reporter working on the Somali missing youths story—why, she wanted to know would they give up what they have in America to fight the Jihad? I think many people living a secular life can’t completely grasp this Islamic imperative.
A speaker identified by conference organizers as Imam Jaleel Abdul Adil said that “if they offer us the sun, or the moon, or a nice raise, or a passport, or a house in the suburbs or even a place to pray at the job [Edit: hey meatpacking companies listen up], on the condition that we stop calling for Islam as a complete way of life — we should never do that, ever do that — unless and until Islam becomes victorious or we die in the attempt.”
If nothing else they are at least telling us what their goal is, and it would be really stupid of us not to listen.
While Hizb ut-Tahrir’s controversial message attracted demonstrators and some media attention, the group at least is open about its ambitions. It not only is determined to destroy capitalism — it would shred the United States Constitution as well in favor of Shariah law.
Hmmm, destroy capitalism and shred the Constitution, sound familiar?
