Politicians too. Another post via Point de Bascule: Interfaith Dialogue: Getting Non-Muslim Religious Leaders to Repeat Muslim Brotherhood’s Mantras.
On September 7, 2011, the Dalai Lama, Tariq Ramadan and other personalities are scheduled to speak at the Second Global Conference on World’s Religions after 9/11. The conference is organized in Montreal with the active cooperation of McGill University and of the Université de Montréal. Interfaith dialogue is one of the most effective methods known to the Muslim Brotherhood for waging ideological jihad in the West.
In a section of his book Priorities of the Islamic Movement, Youssef Qaradawi, the spiritual guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, mentioned various reasons for resorting to interfaith dialogue. Amongst them:
Shortly after we published this article, we came across a commentary by Youssef Qaradawi on GMBDR in which he mentions that interfaith dialogue with Christians should only be the first step that leads to other actions. (“We only carry out dialogue with (Christians) in order to find common grounds that serve as a basis for further action.”) Qaradawi mentions two such “further actions” that are not listed in his text Priorities:
Tariq Ramadan endorses Qaradawi in two of his books in spite of Qaradawi’s justifications for the killing of apostates and homosexuals, his description of Hitler as an envoy of Allah who came to punish the Jews for their corruption, etc. As for Youssef Qaradawi, he publicly endorsed Ramadan’s understanding of Islam by asking him to preface a compendium of fatwas published in French in 2002. All the appropriate references linking Ramadan to Qaradawi are available at the beginning of the article Tariq Ramadan’s Understanding of Islam.
There is another reason why Muslim Brotherhood leaders engage in interfaith dialogue. They strive to make non-Muslim leaders repeat Muslim Brotherhood mantras to non-Muslim audiences. In an era where Muslim Brotherhood leaders such as Tariq Ramadan are viewed with an increasing suspicion in the West, it is much more effective to resort to non-Muslim religious leaders to communicate a deceitful message to non-Muslims who trust them.
We present you two examples of deceitful statements made by the Dalai Lama and Gregory Baum, two non-Muslim speakers who have accepted to join Tariq Ramadan next September in Montreal.
“Jihad Is Not a Medium of Attack but a Struggle to Do Good”
– The Dalai Lama
“Tariq Ramadan has no association whatever with the Muslim Brotherhood”
– Gregory Baum
