In August 2012, journalist Walid Shoebat was researching the life and work of Dr. Zyed Abedin, founder of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) and father of Hillary Clinton deputy Huma Abedin, when he came across what he termed an immensely important “conspiratorial manifesto” that had been commissioned by the late Saudi King, Fahd bin Abdul Aziz. Titled The Efforts of the Servant of the Two Holy Places to Support the Muslim Minorities, this manifesto consists of 29 separate works, one of which is Dr. Abedin’s Muslim Minorities in the West (published in 1998). The manifesto explains “Muslim Minority Affairs” as more than an organization or a social concept, but as a calculated foreign policy of the Saudi Ministry of Religious Affairs, designed to achieve the following specific goals:
1) Recruit individual Muslims who live in non-Muslim lands and transform them as a collective unit by establishing Islamic centers, educational programs, mosques, and organizations (like the Islamic Society of North America and the Muslim Students Association) that serve to prevent Muslims from assimilating into the cultures of their non-Muslim host nations.
2) Encourage these Muslim residents of non-Muslim host nations to shift the demographic scales in their own favor by means of population growth—and separatism—thereby enabling them to more effectively advance an agenda based on fundamentalist Wahhabi teachings and the legitimation and spread of Sharia Law in the West.
3) Eventually the proliferation of Muslims in the host nations will hit critical mass, tilting those societies toward majority-Muslim status.
4) Ultimately, the host states will join the Muslim commonwealth.
The Efforts of the Servant actually maps out, with statistics and demographic analysis, every nation where Muslim minorities presently exist, with an emphasis on how to “shift the demographic balance” in those places, in “favor” of Muslims. Focusing particular attention on the United States, the manifesto specifically identifies the Islamic organizations and the mosques that have been designated to fulfill the “Muslim Minority Affairs” plan in America.
The work of the IMMA run by Dr. Abedin and his family (see Huma Abedin, Saleha Abedin, and Hassan Abedin) served these large principles diagrammed by the Saudi King. Salafists and the Muslim Brotherhood support precisely the same concept, which they term “the Jurisprudence of Muslim Minority Affairs.” “[T]he IMMA is not simply a name of an outfit,” Walid Shoebat explains. “It represents a definition, a jurisprudence rooted in a sinister doctrine with short- and long-term goals. [Yusuf] Qaradawi has a similar manifesto for the Brotherhood. [Muslim Minority Affairs] scholars across the board have an obsession [with] using this jurisprudence [to steer] Muslims into this theocratic collective revolution.”
Mohammed bin Mukhtar Shanqeeti, director of the Islamic Center of Lubbock, Texas, points out that “the Muslim Minority Jurisprudence is not a heresy or a novel [idea], it’s an ancient doctrine filled with the provisions for Muslims living in Dar al-Kufr [House of the Heathen] or Dar Al-Harb[House of War]”—i.e., non-Muslim lands.
At its root, the “Muslim Minority Affairs” agenda is part of a grand plan to destroy America from within, in a stealth manner, exactly as the Muslim Brotherhood outlined in its 1991 “General Strategic Goal” memorandum. Journalist Andrew C. McCarthy summarizes the strategy as follows:
“The Saudi-constructed, Brotherhood-conducted Islamist infrastructure in the West is on a mission—the ‘Muslim Minority Affairs’ mission. It seeks to grow an unassimilated, aggressive population of Islamic supremacists, who will gradually but dramatically alter the character of the West. Its goal is incrementally to infiltrate sharia principles in our law, our institutions, and our public policy. That means the mission takes direct aim at our liberties, particularly free expression, because [the latter] enables examination and negative criticism of Islamist ideology. It takes aim at our alliance with Israel, because Jews are regarded as enemies and all of ‘Palestine’ as Islamic territory. And it takes aim at our economic system, because sharia regards capitalism as a bane of human existence—there is a reason why the Brotherhood’s American operatives make common cause with the Left on everything from socialized medicine to finance regulation to gun control to surveillance law.”
When Zyed and Saleha Abedin were appointed in the late 1970s to head IMMA and oversee the publication of its Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, they were entrusted with helping to advance this same stealth jihadist agenda.
