Trojan Horse indeed. Following is the very chilling conclusion to a longer instructive article. The article is filled with facts, quotes, references, etc., and is titled (not surprisingly), “Stealth Jihad.”
Ultimately, stealth jihadists seek — by exploiting the West’s respect for minority rights and cultures — to transform pluralistic societies into Islamic states and to gradually sweep away Western notions of legal equality, freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, and more. Giuseppe Bernardini, a Roman Catholic Archbishop in Turkey, notes that Saudi “petro-dollars” have been used “not to create work in the poor North African or Middle Eastern countries, but to build mosques and cultural centers in Christian countries with Islamic immigration.” This “program of expansion and re-conquest,” says Bernardini, was given voice by a Muslim leader who had candidly told him: “Thanks to your democratic laws, we will invade you. Thanks to our religious laws, we will dominate you.”
The stealth jihad plan for the West was enunciated by a top Muslim Brotherhood operative in the United States, Mohamed Akram, who explained that the 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.”â€¨ â€¨Akram’s directive came in a Muslim Brotherhood memorandum from May 22, 1991, entitled “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.” In that document, Akram laid out a plan to conquer and Islamize the United States — as a stepping stone toward the larger goal of ultimately establishing “the global Islamic state.”
In America, Akram explained, it would be extremely difficult to promote Islam by means of terror attacks. Thus the Brotherhood’s priority would be to “settle” Islam and the Brotherhood movement in the United States — by way of Islamic organizations posing as civil-rights groups — so that the Muslim faith would be incrementally accepted and “enabled within the souls, minds and the lives of the people of the country.”
Note that the plan above was dated nearly 25 years ago. This has been going on far longer than we had any idea. It was a full decade prior to the 9/11 attack. One other point from the full article give an idea of the financial power behind the movement:
Stealth jihadists seek to transform Western economies by promoting the spread of Islamic banking systems that are consistent with the principles of Sharia, which forbids the payment or acceptance of interest fees for money loans, and prohibits investing in businesses that provide goods or services considered contrary to Islamic principles. According to a 2008 International Monetary Fund report, Sharia-compliant financial institutions in non-Muslim countries (including the United States) have been proliferating at an annual rate of 10 to 15 percent in recent years. A 2009 report in The Banker estimated that Sharia-compliant assets worldwide had grown by 29 percent over the preceding year, to $822 billion.

Except that it is not Soviet communism, the echo of Nikita Khrushchev can almost be heard: “We will bury you.” And interestingly, he once told a senior U.S. government official that they would bury us NOT with nuclear weapons, but by infiltrating and changing us from within.
