Political Islam: An Enemy Within?

by Fred Peatross

In 2001 a doc was seized in the home of Youssef Nada and titled, “Toward a Worldwide Strategy for Islamic Policy.”1 Written in 1982 it was a roadmap to acquiring, in measured steps, control over thinking and expansion of Islam in the west

The document outlines 12 points each with escalating significance

For brevity sake I will only mention 3 points

  • First Point — calls for the creation of “centers of study and research” — to “produce studies on the political dimension of the Islamic movement”
This has already been accomplished in America with overlapping research centers at major universities
  • Fourth Point — calls for “liberty to function politically.” A call for participation by Muslims in local and national governments
  • Eighth Point — cautions Muslim activist to “not look for confrontation with our adversaries, at the local of global scale” because such confrontations “could encourage its adversaries to give the Islamic movement a fatal blow.”

1 In a November 2001 raid on offices and residences associated with Youssef Nada, an untitled document, written in Arabic and dated 1 December 1982, ostensibly outlining a plan to infiltrate and defeat Western countries was found

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
