JIHAD IN THE WEST

Islam is today the fastest-growing faith in the Western world. Nearly 20 million inhabitants of the European Union are Muslims. If present trends continue, by the year 2020 Muslims will account for 10 percent of the overall population of Europe, and their numbers in America will exceed 10 million. These Islamic populations are expanding by way of immigration and a birth rate that far exceeds that of indigenous Westerners. 
 
With these swelling numbers and the creation of distinctly Muslim neighborhoods in Western, primarily European cities, the bold notion of conquest by demographic rather than military means has become a primary objective of Islamic activists. The blueprint for this plan was spelled out in 1981, when the Third Islamic Summit Conference of Kaaba (in Mecca) adopted the Mecca Declaration which stated:

“We have resolved to conduct Jihad with all the means at our disposal so as to free our territory from occupation....We are convinced of the need to propagate the precepts of Islam and its cultural influence in Muslim societies and throughout the world.”

In the ensuing two decades, a new mosque was opened somewhere in the Western world every week. During that same period, the number of Muslims living in the United States grew threefold, overwhelmingly through immigration rather than conversion. 
 
Prior to the first World Trade Center (WTC) attack in 1993, the U.S. government was extremely lax in allowing entry not only to hundreds of thousands of Muslim immigrants -- many of them from countries considered risky or openly unfriendly to U.S. interests -- but also to supporters and propagators of radical Islam, or to agents of terrorist regimes and organizations. Many such people entered the United States with fraudulently obtained student visas that camouflaged their true purpose. Others, including clerics and leaders of radical Islamic groups, came for brief periods, ostensibly to attend conferences organized by militant groups in the U.S.  Their real purpose, however, was to recruit new members, raise funds, coordinate strategies with other militant leaders, indoctrinate new "foot soldiers," and participate in training sessions. 
 
Even after the 1993 WTC attack, America's safeguards against an influx of jihadists were inadequate. By early 2000, the United States and Canada had become a base of operations for a wide spectrum of international (and indigenous) Islamic terrorist organizations. Among these were Hamas, Hezbollah, the Algerian Armed Islamic Group, the Egyptian Group (a.k.a. Al Gamat Al Islamiya), the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Islamic Liberation Party, the Marxist Kurdish PKK, and al Qaeda. These terror outfits set up fundraising operations, political headquarters, military-recruitment apparatuses, and sometimes even command-and-control centers in the United States. 
 
According to a witness at a U.S. House of Representatives hearing on terrorism and immigration in January 2000:

“As water seeking its own level, terrorists will gravitate to those areas that give them the greatest freedom to maneuver. Unless choked off and stopped along the different points of entry -- ranging from the visa granting process overseas to the hundreds of unmanned border crossing points between Canada and the United States -- terrorists will continue to come to the United States.”

Jihadists dominate Islamic life in the United States, to the point that moderates hardly have a voice. Radicals control every major Muslim organization, including the Islamic Association for Palestine, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Islamic Committee for Palestine, the Islamic Society for North America, the Muslim Arab Youth Association, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, and the Muslim Students Association. They also control a growing majority of Muslim newspapers, communal organizations, and mosques.  
 
Islamic jihadists in the West are funded by the Iranians, Libyans, and Saudis, who have for years supported the most extreme organizations. These jihadists have found that they can easily manipulate the American public and politicians by hiding behind the politically correct buzzwords "human rights," and behind the veneer of non-profit "religious charities" -- many of which are clandestine supporters of Islamic terrorism.

Some jihadists (such as Asan Akbar and Nidal Malik Hasan) have even managed to join the armed forces of the United States, carrying out their subversive activities not only from within America but from within its defense establishment.
