Is Islam hijacked by radical extremists who actively seek to destroy the values that Western society is based on? And should the world be worried? The film is a personal journey into the Muslim world, from central intellectuals who live with the threats from modern Islamism, to the management of the worldwide movement, The Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is cloaking their real agenda in artificial humanitarian projects. Terrorist organization Hamas, is a branch of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.
The writer Walid al-Kubaisi is the film’s narrator and guide. From Yemen to Cairo, from London to Paris, the audience partake in his journey that gives a unique and revealing insight into anti-democratic forces that have been remarkably influential in the western world.

Shariah is a totalitarian, brutally repressive and supremacist doctrine. Its adherents — notably, the Muslim Brotherhood — seek to bring it here.
Shariah is principally about power, not faith. Accordingly, acting to realize its political end of overthrowing the U.S. government is seditious and must be prosecuted, not treated as protected religious practice.
The Brotherhood is not a non-violent group. Rather, in most countries where it operates including the United States, it is in a pre-violent phase.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic plan, the group’s mission in America is a “civilization-jihadist process…a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within” by our hands.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s civilization jihad is being pursued through stealthy means involving the penetration and subversion of this country’s civil society and governing institutions. Presidencies of both parties have been compromised in this way.
One determinant of the success of such a stealthy, pre-violent jihad is what the military calls “information dominance.” If the Muslim Brotherhood can exercise it, we can be kept ignorant of the true nature of the threat they pose — and the progress they are making in bringing shariah to America. That has been substantially the case over the past ten years and increasingly of late.
- The Muslim Brotherhood in Europe (book for sale)
Scholars have long debated the intentions of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East. Some claim the organization supports terrorism, while others believe it is a positive force for democratization. Though the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe has attracted less attention, many feel they understand the group just as well. They assume it is closely tied to its Middle Eastern counterpart, with detractors regarding it to be a suspicious, secretive, and centrally-led organization increasing the alienation of Europe’s Muslims. Sympathizers, on the other hand, see it as a moderate, westernized, and fully-integrated force for good. This volume complicates both these views, with experts providing richer and more impartial perspectives on the critical issues relating to Europe’s Muslim Brotherhood. It follows the growth and operation of these organizations within different European contexts and captures their highly specific relationship with non-Muslim media and authority figures.
