Based on an extensive collection of primary source materials, including internal records of the Muslim Brotherhood, startling first-person accounts and chilling and exclusive undercover audio and video of these groups behind closed doors. This investigative film lays bare the history and secret structure of this subversive menace behind the public mask.
"God is our Goal. The Prophet is our leader. The Quran is our constitution. Jihad is our way. Death in the service of God is the loftiest of our wishes. God is great; God is great."
This is the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood, which was founded in Egypt as a vehicle to establish a worldwide Islamic empire governed by Shariah law.
The Brotherhood has transformed Islam into a political agenda, and this mix of religion and politics has become known as Islamism. Since its founding in 1928, the Brotherhood has established a presence in more than 70 countries, and countless organizations worldwide have adopted its strategy and goals.
Today, organizations created by or inspired by the Muslim Brotherhood enjoy considerable influence within the United States. The government, media and law enforcement often turn to these organizations when they want the pulse of the American Muslim community. But critics - Muslim and non-Muslim alike - say that engaging these organizations poses a danger.
According to these critics, although members of these organizations might appear to be moderate, they support an interpretation of Islam that is at odds with democracy and human rights as they are commonly understood in the Western world. Engaging these organizations bestows an undeserved legitimacy upon them and makes it easier for them to advance their secretive agenda.
The 70-minute film by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), traces the roots of Islamism inside the United States. This film examines the extent of Islamist influence within our country and highlights the danger that Islamist influence poses for all Americans.
Jihad in America: The Grand Deception covers:
- The long and violent history of the Muslim Brotherhood, timelined through rare and exclusive footage and audio.
- The uncovering of "smoking gun" documents that roadmap eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.
- Examples of the sabotage of American civilization, including media supremacy, political camouflage and language manipulation.
- A high-profile, cautionary tale of a self-proclaimed "moderate" spokesman for Muslim Americans with secret ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and al-Quaida.
- The true radical political and ideological agenda of CAIR, cloaked as AmericaÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇs largest Muslim civil liberties organization, brought into the light of day.
- The ideological war between those who choose to use words and those who censor them, and the radical consequences when words win.
The documentary includes interviews with FBI agents, federal prosecutors and Muslim experts on radical Islam. Watch undercover video and listen to audio of secret Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood meetings and internal Muslim Brotherhood documents seized by the FBI. Listen to what these front groups are saying in their speeches and conferences behind closed doors, and witness a former member renounce his affiliation with radical Islam for the first time on camera. Rep. Frank Wolf calls the film "the most shocking and important documentary I have ever seen in my life." It is a threat that is right in front of us - just below the surface and hidden in plain sight.
"You need to watch to understand Ikhwan, the Muslim Brotherhood and learn their dirty plans to rule the west and control democracy" Sherif Osman
"This video provides an excellent education for Americans, who generally can't believe someone would do these things deliberately." Keith Davis
"I wish every person could watch this, I have given it to my pastor as we are currently in the process of protesting the building of yet another supermosque in our neighbourhood and we know that the result of that is the degradation of the value of the housing, the intimidation and the implementation of shari'a laws. Highly recommended." Gerredina Kovac
"This is an excellent view of radical Islam in the U.S. and is well documented. Steve Emerson and his team have done what others refuse to do, talk about radical Islam and how it is effecting the U.S. This is a documentary that should be in every law enforcement agency in America." Steven Stanley
"You cannot watch this without realizing there is a Jihad plan in America. Steve Emerson has investigated this subject in a remarkable way! He uses "their own words" on video to show the plan they have against the United States. What they say is so insightful. I have seen many videos like this, and this one is the best; the DVD is brilliantly done." ElliottJFM, Pittsburgh, Pa.
