An Egyptian court sentenced influential senior Muslim cleric Sheikh Youssef al-Qaradawi to death in absentia on Tuesday, in a case relating to a mass jail break in 2011.
Former Islamist president Mohamed Mursi was also sentenced to death in that case, along with more than 80 others sentenced in absentia.
If anything, Qaradawi is the one to be remembered for establishing Stealth Islam with its infiltration ideology called Muruna.
Twenty-five years ago, Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradwai traveled to America and unpacked his plan for a Muslim takeover that would begin one year later and take 30 years to complete. It included a key component and tactic known as Muruna. Like the Ebola virus, it is extremely effective at carrying out its deadly mission.
Since discovering a shocking photo earlier this year that showed al-Qaradawi at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, VA, with then mosque chairman Bassam Estwani, a third figure in the photo has been overlooked – until now. Shoebat.com has determined that the man sitting between al-Qaradawi and Estwani is Shaker Elsayed, the current Imam at Dar al-Hijrah (2005 – present) and former Secretary General of the Muslim American Society (MAS), a Muslim Brotherhood front group (2000-2005).
Dar al-Hijrah was opened in 1991 and MAS was founded in 1992, seven years before al-Qaradawi was banned from the U.S. in 1999. Elsayed did not become an Imam at Dar al-Hijrah until 2005. Yet, somehow, he was able to have a seat at the table with al-Qaradawi inside Dar al-Hijrah years before becoming a leader with MAS.
Elsayed’s history with Estwani, who has been a mover and shaker with U.S. politicians – to include Bill and Hillary Clinton as early as 1995 – dates back to about the same time frame.
Westerners have rightly begun to understand Taqiyya – lying to protect the faith of Islam – but this is a Shiite term and practice. Muruna is a much more immediate threat to the U.S. In fact, any Muslim Brotherhood infiltrator of the U.S. Government is very likely employing it right now.
Though the photo of the three men inside Dar al-Hijrah is undated, it was likely taken circa 1997, nearly a decade after al-Qaradawi introduced Muruna to stealth Muslim Brotherhood operatives in the U.S. Thanks to Steve Emerson’s 1994 PBS documentary Jihad in America.
Of course, what can be concluded is that al-Qaradawi’s plan was in full swing as he spoke at Dar al-Hijrah. Muruna had most certainly been introduced to Elsayed and Estwani. In the case of al-Qaradawi and Elsayed’s MAS, Muslim youths were targeted specifically.
It was al-Qaradawi who introduced Muruna to the American Muslim community in December of 1989, at the annual conference of the Association of Muslim Youth Forums. The Muslim Brotherhood leader introduced this tactic along with a 30-year plan (1990-2020) of conquest for Muslims in the U.S. It would include a tactic that would permit Islamic prohibitions:
Muruna was designed to catapult and advance Sharia by using Western means. If one thinks that Sharia, with its harsh code, is problematic enough, how about the elimination of the kinder, gentler laws? Muruna is literally accomplished by permitting behavior normally so eschewed by Sharia that Westerners logically assume a more moderate version of Islam when such prohibitions are suddenly permitted. Westerners’ eyes are, in fact, deceiving them. Muruna is about going to great lengths to gain interests through a much deeper level of deception while simultaneously lowering the guard and gaining the support of the infidels.
An archived page of the MAS website from 2003 – smack dab in the middle of Elsayed’s tenure there – states the following:
The call and the spirit of the movement reached the shores of North America with arrival of the Muslim student and immigrants in the late 50’s and early 60’s. These early pioneers and Islamic Movement followers established in 1963. Muslim Student Association (MSA) of U.S and Canada as the rallying point in their endeavor to serve Islam and Muslims in the North America scene. Other services and outreach organization soon followed, such as North America Islamic Trust (NAIT), Islamic Medical Association (IMA), Muslim Arab Youth Association (MAYA) and Muslim Youth of North America (MYNA), to name a few.
MAS was founded just two years after the commencement of al-Qaradawi’s 30-year plan and set out to follow al-Qaradawi’s prescription to the letter. A few years later, the man who would become MAS Secretary General was taking notes as al-Qaradawi spoke inside a mosque that would be visited by three 9/11 hijackers and Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Malik Hasan, who was inspired by Anwar al-Awlaki, a man who served as the Imam of the mosque at the time of the 9/11 attacks; an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing named Mohammed al-Hanooti became the mosque’s Imam in 1995. Ten years later, Elsayed would be a successor to Hanooti as Imam of Dar al-Hijrah, a position he holds today.
In March of 2000, Estwani wrote a letter to President Clinton, which he handed to Clinton personally (this is backed up by Clinton’s handwritten notes appearing on the letter). It included the following:
I was also honored in being given the opportunity to invite you personally to visit our Islamic center and mosque in Falls Church, Virginia (Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center), which is considered one of the most active and largest Islamic centers in the United States. I have been repeatedly honored by your invitations and warm receptions at the white house, especially at the Breakfast Prayers since September 1995. You and the first lady havegraciously hosted the Muslim community on several occasions and we are eternally grateful for your and her gracious hospitality and reception. We wish her and you the best always.
With each photo taken of Estwani with prominent politicians – and there is a treasure trove that includes Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Dennis Kucinich, Speaker Dennis Hastert, Senator Warner, Rep. Jim Moran, Rep. Thomas Davis, Rep. Cynthia McKinney, Hillary Clinton and others – the more cover he’d get. Not exposing Dar al-Hijrah to complete sunlight had the effect of protecting the office of the President of the United States. As Shoebat.com reported, Clinton’s successor, George W. Bush, had additional reasons to protect Clinton.
Muruna in Practice
Through Muruna, Qaradawi was able to theologically use the tactic to fool the Clintons. This tactic would include a Muslim woman marrying a Jewish man if it afforded her stealth and cover while gaining access to power centers. Consider Huma Abedin, the very close adviser to Hillary Clinton who served as then Secretary of State Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff. In 2010, she married a Jewish man who also happened to be a U.S. Congressman – Anthony Weiner. Ironically, Bill Clinton presided over the ceremony. Circa 1996, Abedin became an assistant editor with the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA), an institution with the goal of converting all Muslim minority lands into Muslim majority lands.
It was, in fact, Huma’s father, “Sayed Zaynul Abedin,” who, by using the Abedins’ Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs—on whose Board Huma Abedin served for years—joined the Wahhabist plans of Saudi Arabia commissioned by the House of Saud.
Abedin, as commissioned by Al-Saud, authored the manual on how Muslims will take over America, which had the king’s blessings and approval on literally every page. Everything in this holy writ was revolving around “The Muslim Minority Affairs,” as if it was the key to another kingdom in which the Abedins played a central role. The House of Saud had used Huma’s father’s work, “Muslim Minorities in the West,” published in 1998 as part of 29 works to construct a plan to conquer the world with Islam (#11. P. 134), and “The Muslim Minority Affairs” in the west was a major discussion with the United States mentioned throughout. The king of his pride had let out state secrets like others did with Wikileaks. We translated some of this grand plan entitled, Shu-un al-Aqaliyyat al-Muslima. In English, “The Muslim Minority Affairs.” Page after page explained the “Affairs,” not simply as a title, or as a religious or even a social entity, but as a Saudi foreign policy, a jurisprudence and commandment from the highest of authorities commissioned to the Saudi Ministry of Religious Affairs. It was an entire management system using “The Muslim Minority Affairs” as the main vehicle to bringing victory against an infidel world.
No thanks to the Abedins, whom Hillary brought forth, it spoke of recruiting Muslims that live in non-Muslim lands and transforming them as a collective unit. It spoke of already established centers, educational programs, mosques and organizations in the United States like ISNA and MSA, all geared towards hindering any western plan for Muslim assimilation in a non-Muslim host nation. It mentioned “The Muslim Society of North America (ISNA) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA) established in the United States in 1962” (p. 65), as key agents to protect Muslims from assimilation.
It named the mosques and centers in major United States cities established to carry out the mission. Five decades of efforts were spent with billions to ensure that Muslims will be an unassimilated group which then can influence the non-Muslim host nation and other nations, regardless of how small the numbers of Muslims, by shifting the demographic scale due to their population growth in favor of this Saudi agenda.
It explained how a gradual change would ensue by becoming a major revolutionary powerhouse that will tilt the host nation in favor of Muslims, due to their increase as a population. It was a conundrum to transform a nation from within, where a Minority population can act as a fifth column, incubating in the host nation with the intent of gradually implementing the Wahhabist plans.
To bring this all back to al-Qaradawi, consider that Abedin’s mother Saleha Mahmood (Abedin) is also one of 63 leaders of the Muslim Sisterhood, as Shoebat.com first revealed. Serving as an associate editor with Huma was her brother Hassan Abedin. The IMMA was founded by a Saudi named Abdullah Omar Naseeef, who also served on the Institute’s Board for several years.
As Shoebat.com also revealed, Hassan Abedin and Naseef also served with none other than Yusuf al-Qaradawi on the Board of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS) from 2004-2008.
It is important to point out that all of the aforementioned activity chronicled in this post has taken place within the 30-year window prescribed by al-Qaradawi in 1989.
The photos, when examined in conjunction with documents and emails released by the Clinton Library, reveal an extremely disturbing mosaic. They are worth thousands of words and clearly show that it was Qaradawi’s crony, Estwani who had a history of consorting with notorious figures, stealthy Muslim Brotherhood jihadists, and U.S. Congressmen from both sides of the aisle. Perhaps most alarming are his multiple visits to the White House during the Clinton administration.
When Estwani was visiting the White House, Huma Abedin – the daughter of a Muslim Sisterhood leader – had already been working for Hillary Clinton for four years. Shoebat.com revealed that Abedin’s brother was a fellow at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies (OCIS) for several years when al-Qaradawi served on the Board.Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
