As mentioned here repeatedly, the most telling document [pdf] to emerge from the Holy Land Foundation trial in 2008 was written in 1991 by Mohamed Akram. It describes the long-term Muslim Brotherhood plan for Islamic subversion in the United States:
The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the 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 Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. […] It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is…
The blueprint revealed in the HLF document represented the local application of a broader strategy put together by the Muslim Brotherhood more than a decade previously in Europe. This master plan for the subversion of the West by Islam was revealed by chance in Switzerland in November 2001. A document about the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Project” turned up during a raid conducted by Swiss law enforcement authorities at the request of the U.S. government in an effort to shut down terrorist finances.
In 2006 Patrick Poole prepared an investigative report on the Project for FrontPage Magazine when the English translation of the Arabic-language document became available (the original article is no longer online, but a pdf is available here). According to Mr. Poole:
Included in the documents seized during the raid of Nada’s Swiss villa was a 14-page plan written in Arabic and dated December 1, 1982, which outlines a 12-point strategy to “establish an Islamic government on earth” — identified as The Project. According to testimony given to Swiss authorities by Nada, the unsigned document was prepared by “Islamic researchers” associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.
What makes The Project so different from the standard “Death of America! Death to Israel!” and “Establish the global caliphate!” Islamist rhetoric is that it represents a flexible, multi-phased, long-term approach to the “cultural invasion” of the West. Calling for the utilization of various tactics, ranging from immigration, infiltration, surveillance, propaganda, protest, deception, political legitimacy and terrorism, The Project has served for more than two decades as the Muslim Brotherhood “master plan.” As can be seen in a number of examples throughout Europe — including the political recognition of parallel Islamist government organizations in Sweden, the recent “cartoon” jihad in Denmark, the Parisian car-burning intifada last November, and the 7/7 terrorist attacks in London — the plan outlined in The Project has been overwhelmingly successful.
Rather than focusing on terrorism as the sole method of group action, as is the case with Al-Qaeda, in perfect postmodern fashion the use of terror falls into a multiplicity of options available to progressively infiltrate, confront, and eventually establish Islamic domination over the West.
Our persistent tendency is to view Muslims as mirror images of ourselves, worshipping differently, but otherwise having the same basic motivations. This tendency is deeply entrenched in modern liberal ideology, and makes many educated people not just unwilling to consider any evidence for what is really happening, but unable even to see it.
It is literally unthinkable to most of us that there may be a concerted and persistent plan, extending over more than half a century, to undermine and overthrow Western Civilization. Our minds just won’t go there.
We now have ample evidence that Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the front man for the Ground Zero mosque, is not only a dedicated Islamic zealot and proponent of sharia, but also a part of the Muslim’s Brotherhood’s long-term planning. Alyssa Lappen, one of the premier investigators of the Ground Zero mosque, has uncovered evidence that Feisal Abdul Rauf is part of a strategic plan centered in Malaysia. Cordoba House, more commonly known as “the Ground Zero mosque”, is intended to be just one of a series of “battalions” for the takeover and destruction of the West:
Rauf’s Muslim Brotherhood roads to Malaysia
All roads taken by Feisal Abdul Rauf seem to lead to the sharia state of Malaysia.
Rauf spent many weeks there in summer 2010. He first attended school there. Rauf stands second in command at Malaysia’s Perdana Global Peace Organization to antisemitic former Malaysian P.M. and Islamic law advocate Mahathir Mohamad, who in Nov. 2002, incited global anti-West financial war as a “jihad worth fighting for.” Rauf’s father, Muslim Brother Mohammed Abdul Rauf, a colleague and close contemporary of MB founder Hassan al-Banna, established four Malaysian Islamic study centers, including the International Islamic University in Kuala Lumpur, which Mahathir invited him back to Malaysia to open. Malaysia’s IIU now rivals Pakistan’s International Islamic University in Karachi.
It now seems that Malaysian Islamic ideology also played a big role in formulating the Muslim Brotherhood strategy to destroy the West from within and sabotage “its miserable house.”
Those words, of course, paraphrase Article 4 of “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” penned by Mohamed Akram and secretly circulated to trusted Muslim Brothers on May 22, 1991.
Also entitled “Understanding the role of the Muslim Brother in North America,” Article 4 needs no further comment.
Recognizing the centrality of Article 17, however, takes on critical importance in light of national and increasingly international furor over Feisal Abdul Rauf ‘s plan to construct a towering 15-story mosque at Ground Zero. Entitled “Understanding the role and the nature of work of “The Islamic Center” in every city with what achieves the goal of the process of settlement,” Article 17 states,
“The center we seek is the one which constitutes the “axis“ of our Movement, the “perimeter“ of the circle of our work, our “balance center”, the “base“ for our rise and our “ Dar al-Arqam “ to educate us, prepare us and supply our battalions in addition to being the “niche” of our prayers. (emphasis added)

Like Rauf, reports the Oxford Dictionary of Islam, Dar-al-Arqam is rooted in Malaysia. Actually, Feisal Abdul Rauf could easily have drawn from the prototype “grassroots Malaysian Islamic dawah [proselytization] movement” that Ashari Muhammad al-Tamimi founded in 1968, and evidently named for the first Islamic school of Muhammad, to
“revive Islamic religious belief and values for comprehensive practice in everyday life. Emphasizes self-assessment, self-correction, and formation of the Islamic personality. Uses the Sufi teacher-disciple bond to reinforce obedience to leadership. Sponsors lectures, concerts, and cultural shows, publishes books, magazines, and newspapers, and produces videos and cassette tapes showing the Islamic way of life. Expanded to an international arena in 1979 through missionary programs and diplomatic contacts. Has established self-contained Islamic villages throughout Malaysia to demonstrate the viability of the Islamic sociopolitical and economic system. Operates schools, clinics, businesses, agricultural complexes, and advertising and service agencies.”
Rauf expressed almost identical wishes in his 2000 book, Islam a Sacred Law: What Every Muslim should Know about Shariah. In it, as in his later, 2004 book, Rauf pines for pure, orthodox Islam and the inspiration for both violent and non-violent jihad, as preached by a bevy of Islamic clerics throughout the ages — such as 14th century jurist Taqi al-Din Ahmad Ibn Taymiyya (d. 1328) and his 18th century follower Muhammad b. Abdul al-Wahhab (d. 1793). Rauf seeks to “rejuvenate” their Islamic religious spirit, and that of some he falsely labels “modernists,” Jamal al-Dinal-Afghani (d. 1897), Muhammad Abduh (d. 1905), and Abduh’s biographer Rashid Rida (d. 1935). Far from modern, however, they all sought to impose sharia law more widely — despite its requirements for permanent jihad war, and discrimination and dehumanization of non-Muslims and women. So did classical Sufi master al-Ghazali (d. 1111) — another orthodox Muslim, an equally bellicose jurist concerning annual jihad campaigns, discriminating against non-Muslims and imposing Islamic law.
And yes, Rauf plans a mosque: His American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA) registered with the Internal Revenue Service in 1997 as a “church” — only to avoid the annual 990 tax form required of all other U.S. tax-exempt non-profit organizations. But it is not a church as Westerners understand that word. It is a battalion.

It is important to understand that the Islamization of the West is not a haphazard process. It is unfolding — with local ad-hoc modifications — according to a carefully prepared plan that has been underway for several decades and will take several more decades to complete.
The intention of the Project is to subvert, overthrow, and subjugate the political and social institutions in all territories held by non-Muslims, with the ultimate goal being a worldwide Islamic state under the rule of Islamic law.
And Islam is in no great hurry to convert the infidel. In fact, millions of subordinate and productive infidels are required to serve the needs of the Caliphate, to generate wealth and deliver it to their new masters.
Rather than convert you, Islam simply intends that you live under Islamic rule and become subject to sharia. It’s as simple as that.
According to the plan, foolish non-believers will for the meantime remain unaware of their status as milch-cows of the Caliphate — delivering their wealth through state welfare to Muslims in the West, and through foreign aid to those at home — until such time as the political apparatus is firmly in the hands of the Ummah. Then the hosts of Mohammed will rule openly.
The battalions of Islam are even now being mustered and equipped all around the world. Many of them are funded and assisted by the very entities they are intended to subvert. Through their efforts the grand Jihad will in due course accomplish its long-term mission: it will induce its willing victims to sabotage their own miserable house.
