Inside the Muslim Brotherhood in America
Just found this excellent in depth article: Chicago Tribune | A rare look at secretive Brotherhood in America
Just a snippet:
"While separation of church and state is a bedrock principle of American democracy, the international Brotherhood preaches that religion and politics cannot be separated and that governments eventually should be Islamic. The group also champions martyrdom and jihad, or holy war, as a means of self-defense and has provided the philosophical underpinnings for Muslim militants worldwide."
Still think fundamentalist of any sort are people you can sit down and have tea and talk things out with? This problem is going to get bigger over the next decade and our ability to tolerate it will be tested over and over again. Unfortunately I am affraid we are going to have to move the needle on some of our personal freedoms to ensure we can maintain the vast majority of them against a foe that will not compromise.
