ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) representative lets the cat out of the bag, when in defending the decision to hold Muslim Family Day at Six Flags on Sept. 11th weekend, she reveals that the radical Muslim organization is “partnered with and funded by Homeland Security.”
Statement comes at 1:20 in this video:
Literature that is required reading for ICNA members and that is provided at its conferences prominently features a host of radical scholars and an ideology that casts the practice of Islam as incompatible with the West.
In addition, the group’s extremism, which has included glorifying the death of another young Muslim American convert in a Pakistani jihad, and its admitted links to the radical Pakistani organization, Jamaat-e-Islami, continue unabated. Jamaat-e-Islami has pledged itself to conquering all spheres of human life, including economic, political, and social, throughout the world.
“The irony of groups like ICNA is that they take advantage of democratic values to spread a message that is monolithic, anti-democratic, and isolating. They want to implement Sharia law in place of Western government… Organizations like ICNA are also smarter than their parent organization, Jamaat-e-Islami in Pakistan. Whereas the Pakistani group openly preaches its intolerant views, this group presents a smoother message in line with American values. However, its ideology and aims actually contradict democratic values and law.”
However, internal ICNA records describe a long-term campaign to change the country. In a 2003 introductory manual provided to potential members of its youth group, youth leader Azeem Khan wrote that the purpose of the group was “educating, training, and developing the Muslim youth to be Islamic workers for Iqamat-ad-Deen in North America.” Khan then defined Iqamat-ad-Deen as “the Establishment of Islam in its totality,” so that “He [Allah] may make it prevalent over all religions” in North America.
ICNA’s charter goes into even more detail. It explains that ICNA wants Islam to be the dominant force in all spheres of life, including the political and economic, with the practical realization of this form of Islamic rule in an Islamic Caliphate:
“The goal of ICNA shall be to seek out the pleasure of Allah (SWT) through the struggle of Iqamat-ud-Deen (establishment of the Islamic system of life) as spelled out in the Qur’an and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (SAW)… This Deen [religion] encompasses the internal, external, individual and collective aspects of human life whether it pertains to beliefs, rituals and morals or to economic, social or political spheres…The ideal and the best practical model of Iqamat [establishing] of this Deen [religion] was established by the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and the rightly-guided Caliphs.”
