Jihad through "Con"version : Exploiting good faith, and the Constitution, to recruit converts to Islam

July 9, 2004

Conquest or Conversion : Da'wa as Jihad and Terrorism

In case anyone doubted the militant Islamist ambitions to convert the world to Islam, these words of cleric Yusuf Qaradawi and the Koran should dispel any illusions:

Dawa (recruitment to Islam )is an obligatory duty (Fard) for all Muslims.

Muslims believe that everyone was born Muslim but led astray by their non Islamic upbringing.

They refer to new Muslims as "reverts' not converts.


"You are now the best people brought forth for (the guidance and reform of) mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah." (Quran 3:110)


This from Jihad Watch:

A leading Islamic cleric , al-Qaradawi also promises that eventually Islam will prevail over all other religions and a single Islamic state will rule the world.

Al-Qaradawi says some countries will fall to the armed Islamic jihad, but in others, such as the United States, victory will come through Da'awa - the teaching of Islam to non-Muslims - which will trigger Westerners to convert to Islam "in droves."

"We will conquer Europe, we will conquer America! Not through (the) sword, but through Da'awa," al-Qaradawi told members of the Muslim Arab Youth Association at the group's 1995 convention in Toledo, Ohio.

"Jihad can be with the pen and the tongue just as it can be with the sword and the spear. Islamic Jihad is not limited to military efforts only; it extends beyond this, including several means that Muslims need to utilize now more than ever."

Below MIM is showing the calculated campaign being waged to introduce Islam to Americans via the public schools, libraries and neighborhood organisations .

MIM also wants to know how closely Da'wa is linked to Jihad and terrorism.

Here is a letter which Muslims are urged to bring to their neighbors to tell them about Islam, under the guise of introducing themselves. Note that the letter was originally written by Paul Findley, the ex Republican congressman who runs the Council for the National Interest which is linked to the Islamic Association of Palestine and Hamas.

Here we see Findley speaking at an IAP/Hamas event together with several individuals jailed on terrorism charges :

Sami Al Arian,Ismail Royer, Ali Tamimi and Sheik Ra'ed Salah the head of the Islamic Movement .

Paul Findley is Chairman of the Council for the National Interest


Besides speaking at IAP events, and writing pamphlets for Islamic propagation, Findley has written books which are distributed by CAIR such as "Images of Islam"

All the Hate That's Fit to Print see article by Stephen Schwartz

... Images of Islam,".a wretched book by professional Israel-basher Paul Findley, a former Republican congressman from Illinois. Findley's book came out in the summer of 2001, which did not prove a propitious moment for a work that gushes over Osama bin Laden. Findley writes, "Outsiders do not seem to recognize that bin Laden is one of the pre-eminent heroes of Afghans, occupying a role similar to the Marquis de Lafayette, a Frenchman who fought at the side of the Colonials during America's Revolutionary War."

Paul Findley wrote glowingly of his encounters with Ahmed Deedat who is funded by Bin Laden and proudly declared that he and his son have met Bin Laden several times.

On the ICPI website the "Welcome to Islam " webpage has an order list for :

"Three books which have changed the Amir of the ICPI's life"

They are :

"Crucifiction or Cruxifiction?"

"I am Muslim"

"Suicide Bomber"


Paul Findley also visited Ahmed Deedat at the Bin Laden Centre in South Africa which houses the International Center for Propagation of Islam, and participated in this "Great Symposium" Is Israel Set Up for Destruction?"

Paul Findley's Council for the National Interest should be renamed "The Council to Nuke Israel"

Bin Laden funding for terror and Da'wa :

SA activist's Bin Laden ties

War on America

A SA Islamic activist has forged strong ties with the Bin Laden family, receiving substantial funding from them and, in the process, meeting Osama bin Laden, the man named as prime suspect in this week's terror attacks.

Yousuf Deedat, 45, who triggered a storm when he distributed thousands of anti-Semitic handbills featuring a picture of Adolf Hitler during the World Conference Against Racism in Durban last week, said he first met Bin Laden in 1989.

Deedat and his father, Muslim scholar Ahmed Deedat, met Bin Laden on several other occasions in Saudi Arabia that year and in the 1990s while they were drumming up support for the Islamic Propagation Centre International in Durban.

"He was quiet-spoken, respectful and humble. When he met my father, he did not look him in the eye. That is the greatest honour an Arab can bestow on an elder," said Deedat.

The Deedats have had close links with the Bin Laden family since first meeting Osama's elder brother, Sheikh Bakr bin Laden, in 1986. Since then, many of the 27 Bin Laden brothers have contributed generously to the centre. Sheikh Bakr alone gave the centre $3.1-million over eight years to buy a building, print the Koran in English and Zulu, and print and distribute Islamic literature.

In appreciation, the Deedats named their building in Durban's Victoria Street after the family in 1988.

During his tenure as secretary-general of the propagation centre, the Bin Ladens reportedly paid Yousuf Deedat a monthly salary of R900 000.

Deedat said Bin Laden had invited him on a number of occasions to attend his lectures in Saudi Arabia. "He moved me to tears. He was a man of few words, but when he spoke in public, he had this magnetic effect on all who listened to him." Whether he was guilty or not, Deedat said, the US would always use him as a scapegoat".

Unlike his friend Deedat, who met with Bin Laden abroad , Findley's CNI could not bring him as a guest to the U.S.

Of course one assumes that as a good Muslim Deedat is "sharing the wealth" with his friends .

Small wonder that Findley decided to further the cause of Islam and show his appreciation for Deedat's hospitality by helping Muslims win converts in America .

He authored a pamphlet for Muslims to wave as they as they descend on their neighbors entitled:

"A Friendly Note from Your Muslim Neighbor".

According to Da' wa net "the distribution will most likely spark conversation and lead to better relationships in the neighborhood."

MIM suggests revamping these pamphlets in Miramar where the Shukrijumah family resides with an additional message for the Muslim residents in an effort to "spark conversation" before "Mohammed Atta's sucessor "sparks a dirty bomb.

"A Timely Note from Your Infidel Neighbor" :

"Do you know where Adnan Shukrijumah is ?"

Note that the " warm fuzzy" Da'wa mission statement explains that as a result of John Ashcroft's terrorism guidelines infidel residents should be cautioned against reporting any behaviour involving Muslims which is "unfamiliar", "suspicious", and "not normal" claiming that it could lead to "Cold War style discrimination and censorship.

To prevent this from happening Da'wa net advises Muslims to institute their their own neighborhood watch programs !


Know Your Neighbor Campaign

This simple idea connects Muslims to their neighbors

. It has been tested in several neighborhoods and it works beautifully, breaking the ice and allowing a better understanding and communication in the neighborhood.

Muslims distribute a flyer entitled, "A Friendly Note From Your Muslim Neighbor" to houses in their neighborhoods. Mr. Paul Findley originally wrote this copyright-free flyer.

Since then, many versions have appeared throughout America. Individuals and Masjids can either order preprinted pamphlets from DawaNet or download it from the internet and print it on their own. The distribution will most likely spark conversation and may lead to better relationships in the neighborhood. If an opportunity arises, you can propose a neighborhood watch program if none exist at this time. Download a pdf version of the flyer.

Start a Neighborhood watch program
Very few Muslims probably know that based on the announcement by Attorney General John Ashcroft, the Neighborhood Watch program now extends to include terrorism prevention, a move critics fear could fuel Cold War-style discrimination and censorship.

By asking neighborhood groups to report on people who are 'unfamiliar' or who act in ways that are 'suspicious' or 'not normal,' our government is opening the way to fear-mongering and fueling already rampant ethnic and religious scapegoating

. In view of this, it is recommended that Muslims initiate a neighborhood watch program in their neighborhood if one is not already in place. Your police department should give you a step-by-step guide before you call a meeting of your neighbors to get the program started.


Below are form letters which are to be written to schools and teachers pushing for "religious accommadation' so the teacher and students will be forced to learn about Islam.

The letter is deceptively polite and implies that accommodation is a right and it is the teachers's duty as to make sure that the Muslim student , and Islam are given the deference they deserve vis a vis 'infidels'

Note that the letter states that the students religious needs must be accommodated in public school . The message is meant to imply the parent is trying to "benefit to all those in your class who require religous accomodation".The phony altruism is belied in the sentence 'Your role as Samira's teacher is crucial in ensuring that "her ability to function as a young Muslim is not compromised while learning and growing academically".


A Sample Letter to the Teacher of your child for religious accomodation

Dear Mr. Lucas :

I am the father of Samira Khan, a student in your grade four class. As a Muslim, she is one of the millions of children in America (Muslim, Christian, Jewish, etc.) whose religious needs must be accommodated in public school.

Your role as Samira's teacher is crucial in ensuring she develops academically and in a well-adjusted manner. This means that her ability to function as a young Muslim is not compromised while learning and growing academically.

This is why I would like to meet with you to discuss what President Bill Clinton has instructed schools and teachers to do about the religious needs of all students in America, and in particular, Samira's needs as a Muslim student in your class. In the long run, this will be of benefit to all students in your class and at Belleview elementary school who require religious accommodation.

I would also like to seek your advice about the issue of religious accommodation for Samira and her classmates.

If you can kindly contact me so that we may set up a meeting this week or next week, it would be greatly appreciated. You may call me at (123) 456-7890 in the daytime or (123) 012-3456 in the evenings.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your time and attention.
