This is the most hair-raising
article I have ever written. It contains
information that you must know!
An alert Maryland Transportation Authority Police officer observed a woman wearing traditional Islamic garb videotaping the support structures of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The suspect and her driver, Ismail Elbarasse, were detained when police found there was an outstanding warrant issued for him in Chicago involving a Hamas case.
When the FBI raided Elbarasse’s home in Annandale, Virginia in 2004, they found in his hidden sub-basement two truckloads of Muslim Brotherhood archives. “The documents confirmed what investigators and counterterrorism experts had previously suspectedm concerning the massive growth of various Muslim-American groups in the United States - namely, that nearly all of them are controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood Islamist organization, and, therefore, as Islamic law (Sharia) dictates, [is] hostile to this country, its Constitution and freedoms. ”The documents made clear the group’s ultimate objective is to implement Sharia in America as another step towards re-establishing their global Caliphate. (www.theoakinitiative.org, http://goo.gl/H1yhwW)
A Caliphate is a political religious regime
comprising state lands and peoples
under its dominion governed by Sharia law
- which includes polygamy, child brides,
cutting off limbs as punishment,
death to Muslims who convert to Christianity,
serious persecution of evangelical Christians
and a culture of submission
from all non-Muslims.
THE PLAN UNFOLDS
One of the most critical documents found in the FBI raid was the Muslim Brotherhood’s Strategic Plan for North America entitled, An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the [Muslim Brotherhood] Group. It was written by a member of the Board of Directors for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America and senior Hamas leader, Mohammed Akram. This document was approved by the Brotherhood’s Shura (Consultative) Council and Organizational Conference in 1987, and it establishes the mission of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America:
“The process of settlement [meaning establishing in America Islamic rule] is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word 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 [Muslims] 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 and wherever he lands until the final hour comes and there is no escape from that destiny
In Arabic and English translation: (www.txnd.uscourts.gov, http://goo.gl/FUpwVI)
“In other words, the Ikhwan’s strategy for destroying the United States is to get us, specifically our leadership, to do the Muslim Brotherhood’s bidding. The Ikhwan intends to conduct Civilization Jihad by co-opting our leadership into believing a counterfactual understanding of Islam and the nature of the Muslim Brotherhood, thereby manipulating or coercing these leaders to enforce the MB narrative on their subordinates.”(www.theoakinitiative.org, http://goo.gl/H1yhwW)
The Oak Initiative spells out the smooth–talking Ikhwan’s operational skills that gained them constant access to the White House, the Defense Department and the State Department, to mention a few.
TAQIYYA - LEGAL LIES TO THE PRESIDENT
“The George W. Bush administration was targeted with a multifaceted, sophisticated information operation designed to deceive national security officials about the true nature of the Islamic jihadist enemy that attacked the homeland on 9/11. Surrounded by Muslim Brotherhood voices which told him true Islam had been “hijacked” by a “tiny minority of extremists,” President Bush responded by flinging U.S. military might against those who had physically carried out those attacks.
“Far more importantly, however, is that he was successfully deterred from investigating the belief system that inspired those hijackers by a blanket of Muslim Brotherhood taqiyya [Islamic legal deceitfulness to non-Muslims] that successfully smothered inquiry about the very Islamic doctrine that al-Qaeda and the hijackers themselves declared to be their motivation. Although few realize it to this day, the crippling of the Bush administration’s global war on terror response marked a crucial turning point in the U.S. ability to defend itself against Islamic Jihad.”(www.gatestoneinstitute.org, http://goo.gl/zyWFs3)
At the ground level, this means that when police officers, federal agents, military personnel, or any other Americans who have sworn an oath to protect and defend the Constitution challenge their leadership with facts, these public figures are faced with a hard choice: admit a lack of understanding of the threat and that he or she has been duped, or the leader and his subordinates must suppress the facts in the interest of protecting his or her professional reputation.” (Ibid.)
A DAMAGING EXAMPLE
Army Reserve Major Stephen Coughlin, a lawyer by training and the Pentagon’s top expert in Islamic law and Jihad, served in the Bush administration in the intelligence section of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. His 2007 master’s thesis, “To Our Great Detriment: Ignoring What Extremists Say About Jihad,” accepted at the National Defense Intelligence College, has become the standard classic on the subject of what Islamic law teaches about Jihad. Coughlin conducted countless briefings on his findings for senior Defense Department officials, and in 2007 prepared an analysis on the evidence being submitted by Justice Department prosecutors in the Holy Land Foundation case (whose operatives were convicted and jailed for funding terrorist organizations). That evidence, based on the Brotherhood’s own documents, demonstrated that U.S. Islamic organizations established as front groups by the Muslim Brotherhood were waging a “Civilization Jihad” to “destroy the Western civilization from within.” Among the organizations actively involved in channeling illicit funding to Hamas was ISNA (The Islamic Society of North America), the largest of all front groups.
But a Brotherhood operative and a senior advisor for international affairs in the George W. Bush administration, Hesham Islam, moved swiftly to defend his own position, the ISNA and the Brotherhood. In March 2008, as a result of Hesham Islam’s campaign to have him removed, Coughlin’s contract with the Joint Chiefs of Staff was not renewed. (Ibid.)
We would have to write a thick book to cover all such examples.
Even with the mass of evidence that was and is available to the successive administrations, Muslim Brotherhood operatives are now positioned throughout America in local and national government branches.

THE FIVE-PHASE PLAN
TO SEIZE POWER IN THE U.S.
One of the Muslim Brotherhood documents found in the Elbarasse treasure trove is a paper entitled, Phases of the World Underground Movement Plan specifying the five phases of the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in North America. They are described, together with the author’s comments about the Ikhwan’s progress in realizing each goal as follows:
Phase One: Phase of discreet and secret establishment of leadership.
[i.e quietly creating a favorable appearance of Islam as a moderate religion with amiable Islamic leaders. Editor’s comment]
Phase Two: Phase of gradual appearance on the public scene and exercising and utilizing various public activities.
It [the Brotherhood] has greatly succeeded in implementing this stage. It also succeeded in achieving a great deal of its important goals, such as infiltrating various sectors of the Government. Gaining religious institutions and embracing senior scholars. Gaining public support and sympathy. Establishing a shadow government [secret] within the Government.
Phase Three: Escalation phase, prior to conflict and confrontation with the rulers, through utilizing mass media.
Currently in progress. [Most Western media defends Islam and mocks those who warn against the danger of Islam as Islamophobics.]
Phase Four: Open public confrontation with the Government through exercising the political pressure approach.
It is aggressively implementing the above-mentioned approach. Training on the use of weapons domestically and overseas in anticipation of zero-hour. It has noticeable activities in this regard.
Phase Five: Seizing power to establish the Islamic Nation under which all parties and Islamic groups are united.
Investors.com notes that this document offers a chilling operational insight into the mindset, planning, and vision of the Islamic Movement in North America. The Muslim Brotherhood is at this time in Phase Four, preparing for Phase Five.
The Muslim Brotherhood has, as a matter of undeniable fact, established, built and maintained control over most of the prominent Muslim organizations in America.
They clearly state their goal of one day seeing a Muslim president at the helm of what was once “Old Glory.”
Yes, whether you believe it or not, the Muslim Brotherhood has laid out a phased plan to turn the U.S.A. into a Caliphate ruled by Islamic Law (Sharia).
Impossible? The Muslim Brotherhood not only believes it is possible, but certain to happen.

A CASE STUDY:
HOW THEY DO IT
Left: Abdurrahman Alamoudi with President George W. Bush;
Right: Abdurrahman Alamoudi with President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore.
Abdurrahman Alamoudi immigrated from the African country of Eritrea in 1979 and became a U.S. citizen in 1996. In the 90s, he founded and became executive director of the American Muslim Council, and after being involved with nearly two-dozen other U.S. Muslim organizations, he was invited to the White House in 1996. With his newfound influence, he advised President Bill Clinton on Muslim affairs and introduced him to other AMC members.
Dean Olson, graduate of the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security, writes that Alamoudi was soon regarded by both Republican and Democratic administrations as the “go-to guy” on issues that affected Muslim America. He was an honored guest at the White House under both the Clinton and Bush administrations, posed for photographs with American Presidents and their families, and rubbed elbows with the power players of both political parties. He was a man the government believed represented moderation.
He even represented the Muslim American community at memorial services held at the National Cathedral to honor the victims of the 9/11 attacks.
GUIDELINES FOR SCHOOL BOOKS ON RELIGION
Alamoudi assisted President Clinton and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in 1995 to develop a presidential guideline entitled Religious Expression in Public School. (www.homelandsecuritynet.com, http://goo.gl/o5UzoD)
He was soon given the job of establishing the Muslim Chaplain Program for the Department of Defense, and then served as the certifying authority for Muslim chaplains serving U.S. servicemen and women.
Alamoudi penetrated the presidential campaign of Governor George W. Bush. He provided a Bush activist with $20,000 to establish what would become a Muslim Brotherhood front organization targeted at penetrating GOP circles.
Alamoudi’s long time deputy, Khaled Saffuri was designated the Bush campaign’s Muslim outreach coordinator. Another prominent Ikhwan Brother, Sami al-Arian was able to obtain a commitment from candidate Bush that, if elected, he would prohibit the use of classified intelligence evidence in deportation proceedings against foreigners suspected of terrorist ties. After the election, still another member of the Islamic Institute’s board of directors, a long-time Ikhwan, became the gatekeeper for the Muslim community in the White House Office of Public Liaison.
Such relationships and placements afforded the Muslim Brotherhood unprecedented opportunities to influence operations against the U.S. government, especially after 9/11.
Unfortunately for Alamoudi, in the year 2000 he was videotaped proclaiming he was a supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah at an anti-Israel protest. He was also recorded stating that his goal was to make America a Muslim nation. He was arrested at Heathrow Airport in London on his way back from Libya with $340,000 cash for Jihad. The money was to be used for al Qaeda operatives to kill the Crown Prince (now King Abdullah) of Saudi Arabia.
Alamoudi was extradited to the U.S., convicted of being a senior al Qaeda financier, and is now serving a 23-year sentence in federal prison.
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SHOCK WAVES?
One would think that such an arrest would have sent shock waves throughout the White House and every other government department. This Hamas operative and Ikhwan agent had enjoyed access to the most senior levels of the American government. His appointed chaplains were free to proselytize in the most lucrative target populations for jihadist recruiters: the U.S. military and imprisoned felons.
What did the administration do? It handed Alamoudi’s responsibilities to the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the largest Muslim Brotherhood front in this country.
What we are to take from this, said Dean Olson, is that we are facing an enemy that is very shrewd and very sophisticated. This Jihad focuses on usurping America’s democratic institutions surreptitiously, rather than with bombings and killings. They are most dangerous in the soft form of Civilization Jihad in which they try to undermine our democracy and instill Sharia law without firing a shot. (Center for Homeland Defense and Security)

COMES TO AMERICA
The Oak Initiative, a Christian organization, has scholarly documentation, from which I have heavily drawn - about the Muslim Brotherhood operations
in the U.S. Here then is my thumbsketch of the Islamic activities in the U.S. since its beginning.
In 1953, Princeton University hosted a group of prominent Muslims for an “Islamic Colloquium” - a conference at which scholars or other experts present papers on, analyze, and discuss a specific topic. Ikhwan delegates asked for and were granted a meeting with President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Though the Brotherhood had vigorously cooperated with Nazis, the president agreed to meet them on advice of his defense and intelligence advisors, thinking they could influence Muslims to fight against the communists.
What Eisenhower could not have known was this meeting would be the beginning of the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan to ultimately establish a Caliphate in the United States as part of their world vision of a global Caliphate. Sounds farfetched? Keep reading.
The first official Muslim Brotherhood front organization founded in the U.S. was the Muslim Students Association (MSA), established in a University of Illinois campus in 1964. Today there are over 600 MSA chapters at colleges and universities across North America. According to former FBI Special Agent John Guandolo, “The MSA serves as a recruitment tool preying on the fragile emotional makeup of young students to bring Muslims and non-Muslims into the Muslim Brotherhood.”
In fact, the MSA was the blueprint model for the thousands of Muslim Brotherhood front groups that exist, function and continue to multiply across the U.S. today.
Nearly every Muslim organization in America today presents Islam in public as an acceptable alternative to other religions, never mentioning its revolutionary aspects at first. But in recent years, MSA members have become more aggressive in their demands for accommodations and silencing those who oppose them.
According to plan, all kinds of Muslim organizations have sprung up: The Association of Muslim Social Scientists, the Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers, the Islamic Medical Association, the Muslim Communities Association, the Muslim Youth of North America are just a few.
In 1973 Saudi Arabia gave a big boost to the Muslim Brotherhood by creating the North American Islamic Trust, which now controls approximately 80 percent of the titles/deeds to the mosques, Islamic organizations and Islamic schools in the USA. Such help is accompanied by Saudi-trained imams, textbooks for the madrassas, jihadist literature and videos for the bookstore, paid hajj pilgrimages to Mecca (obligatory trip to Mecca) and even training in jihad.
In 1980, the Brotherhood created a new organization to extend the footprint made possible by the swelling ranks of Muslim Students Association alumni. It brought together most of its groups under the authority of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which is today the largest Muslim Brotherhood front in North America.
Through the 1980s and 1990s, these innumerable new organizations built hundreds of mosques and Islamic schools across the U.S. and Canada - primarily with funding from Saudi Arabia. (www.theoakinitiative.org, http://goo.gl/H1yhwW)
According to Wikipedia, the number of mosques in the U.S. grew from 1,209 in 2000 to 2,106 in 2010. The Muslim Brotherhood has, as a matter of historical fact, established, built and maintained control over most of the prominent Muslim organizations in America.
An editorial “Islamofascism” in Investor’s Business Daily, reports: With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc.
“Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016,” said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups. “We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.” (www.news.investors.com, http://goo.gl/Ul3m72)
The Ikhwan are right on target.
Next month, I will write on The Muslim Brotherhood and the Obama Administration.

THE BROTHERHOOD'S BEGINNINGS
The Muslim Brotherhood Creed:
"Allah is our goal; the Messenger is our guide;
the Koran is our law; Jihad is our means;
and Martyrdom in the way of Allah is our inspiration.”
The Ottoman Empire that ruled the Holy Land for four hundred years, collapsed in 1917, when Great Britain and its allies marched on its capital, Constantinople.
At the height of its power, the Turks ruled a Caliphate which enveloped Southeast Europe, the Middle East including the Holy Land, the Caucasus, North Africa, and the Horn of Africa.
This Caliphate was abolished in 1924 (only 90 years ago) under the leadership of the secular ruler and founder of the modern state of Turkey, Kemal Atatürk.
But not every Muslim was pleased with the new Turkish secular state. Many of the faithful throughout the world seethed with frustration at Islam’s diminished status. An Egyptian, Hassan al-Banna was one of them. The ignominy of the British colonial infidels (kafir in Arabic) ruling over Egypt - once part of the Caliphate - was the worst indignity. In 1928, Al-Banna and his university friends joined together and vowed to re-establish the Caliphate and to work toward global enforcement of Sharia.
They called their organization the Muslim Brotherhood, known in Arabic as al- Ikhwan al-Muslimun. By the early 1930’s the Brotherhood - or Ikhwan - had developed a formal organizational structure around groups of men with special spiritual and physical training called “Battalions.”
During World War II, the Ikhwan attacked Egyptian officers, British soldiers and their families, and in 1948, assassinated Egypt’s Prime Minister. The new secular President Gamal Abdel Nasser launched a crackdown against the Brotherhood in 1954 resulting in an exodus of many top Ikhwan and the expansion of the organization around the world, including the West.
They now have offices in 70 countries. Al Qaeda was birthed by the Brotherhood and Hamas is a branch of their organization.
Today this organization is so disruptive and subversive, even in Arab countries, that it is considered a terrorist organization by the governments of Bahrain, Egypt, Russia, Syria, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. But not in the West!
The Muslim Brotherhood is financed by contributions from its members, who are required to allocate a portion of their income to the movement. A considerable percentage comes from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other oil-rich countries.
Their publicized goal is to rule a world Caliphate. They believe they can do a better job by stealth - even if it takes longer - than by physical terror.
IMPORTANT PRINCIPLES OF SHARIA
A Muslim who converts must be killed immediately.
Honor killing is acceptable.
Sharia approves of slavery including sexual slavery.
Sharia dictates death by stoning, beheading, amputation of limbs, flogging, etc.
A Muslim will not receive a death penalty if he kills a non-Muslim or a convert to another religion.
Non-Muslims are not equal to Muslims under Sharia.
Women are not equal to men under Sharia.
A non-Muslim cannot inherit from a Muslim.
A Muslim can marry a baby at any age and consummate the marriage at age 8 or 9 - legal pedophilia.
Women must cover every inch of their bodies. Some Sharia schools do not allow the face to be exposed.
A Muslim man may have up to 4 wives, and a woman cannot divorce a man. The man can divorce a woman with the words: I divorce you.
The testimony of a woman in court is half the value of a man.
A woman must have 4 male witnesses to prove rape.
A Muslim is obliged to lie and mislead without feelings of guilt - especially to non-Muslims - for the sake of furthering Sharia, such as Jihad.
Deceit is part of the DNA of furthering the Kingdom of Allah.

ARE SERIOUS ABOUT STANDING WITH ISRAEL!
At the “Chinese Cyprus Conference” for Christian business men and women, the attendees gave a contribution equivalent to approximately $50,000 to Ari Sorko-Ram for Maoz Israel Ministries. The big sign represents the check. (Cyprus Conference has no connection with the island of Cyprus)
A city-wide conference in Beijing was held with Ari sorko-ram teaching on the Jewish Roots of Christianity. In the picture, Ari blesses the people with the Aaronic Blessing found in Numbers 6:22-26.
A group of Chinese and Singaporean Christian business people hosted by Maoz Israel Ministries, Israel Empowerment Lobby, Raffles Air Singapore and China Cyprus Leader Dr. Zhao Xiao visited Israel seeking to invest in Israeli hi-tech businesses. Israel’s Channel 2 came to report on the visit as Ari Sorko-Ram was encouraging the Chinese believers to invest.
The Chinese Christian business people prayed at the Great Wall of China for a great revival in China and Israel.
They then visited a place called Heaven’s Temple with Ari and again interceded intensely for their nation and for Israel.
Dear Maoz Partner,
“The right charity changes the world, just as it changes us when we engage with it.” S. Godin
A New Year... This year, like last year, and the one before that... the news that reaches Israel from the hostile nations that surround us, and in fact from almost the entire world - is BAD news. The Israeli people genuinely fear for the survival of the Jewish state.
At this time, no nation is stopping the plans of Hamas, a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, with its very public plans to destroy Israel. But we know what God has promised! All Israel shall be saved!
And this is why we are committing our time, our energy, and our every waking hour to bringing the Gospel to our people. To everyone who is searching and whose heart is crying out for answers.
Currently we are auditioning believing young people to be part of a half-hour weekly show in HEBREW. They will discuss the issues of life that youth are most interested in talking about and have the most questions: “Is there a God?” “Why am I here?” “Is there such a thing as miracles?” “Why do the nations hate us?” and a host of other hot topics and questions of the day.
Recording programs for TV - even for Internet TV - is costly. But it is so worth it!
WHY are we doing this? Because we MUST engage our youth, get their attention, and bring them the GOOD News!
WHAT does this have to do with you? You are our support system... our troops behind the line of action - praying, giving, and believing that it is possible to reach our generation and the next with the Good News of Yeshua, our Messiah.
What if you could impact one Jewish person, and that life impacted his/her family, and those children passed on their belief in Yeshua as their Messiah... the exponential possibilities of salvation among the Jewish people is absolutely thrilling AND PROMISED!
And that’s what your gift this month will do. It will allow us to reach more Israelis with the Gospel. It will allow us to innovate, create, produce, and distribute the GOOD NEWS to a potentially huge audience of Hebrew speakers who are still searching for HOPE, significance, truth, and meaning for their lives.
We are also planning to produce this particular show, Israel Front Line, with Hebrew subtitles, and also in Chinese! Our vision is not small!
The task is monumental. But we are energized to tackle the assignment before us. And with your help this year, we will be able to see lives changed, set free, and empowered to increase the Kingdom.
Help us as we go forward... 2015 is going to be an exciting year!
Shalom, and may you have a Blessed New Year,
Ari & Shira Sorko-Ram
P.S. As you consider your giving for 2015, make Maoz Israel Ministries part of your Kingdom investment! It will impact many lives... and impact YOUR life, as well! Give today!
And don’t forget to request the DVD “Sister Religions” for your gift of $35 or more.
