By that I mean their world view and their facts are completely wrong.
There was recently a meeting here in Chicago where some of their beliefs were on display:
According to the American Muslim Forum for Democracy, Hizb-ut-Tahrir, the group that hosts the meeting, is a radical origination that promotes world-wide jihad, and targets young children to join their movement. The following excerpt comes from AMFD’s 2009 call for Muslim organizations to denounce and condemn the Hizb-ut-Tahrir.
Hizb ut-Tahrir is an Islamist network that is committed to creating an Islamic Caliphate that spans the globe. The organization is banned in Germany and Russia as well as several Arab countries and targets Muslim children between the ages of 9 and 18. Many compare their efforts to organizations like the Hitler Youth. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, is counted among their alumnus.
There were four speakers at the event, three of which that wanted to remain unidentified, with the center of attention focusing upon the key note speaker, Dr. Mohammed Malkawi aka Abu Talha, Hizb’s Deputy Spokesperson. The following are some of the claims made by the four speakers:
- American Capitalism has caused all that is wrong with the Muslim world today.
- The Capitalist System was created to restrict Muslims.
- Jews and Christians will not be happy with Muslims until they adopt their way of life.
- The fall of Communism and the decline of Capitalism sends a clear message that the rise of Islam is imminent.
- Capitalism has failed due to its high suicide, high poverty, and many other adverse rates, while at the same time there were no statistics mentioned about the same rates in Arab Nations.
- Capitalism systematically creates poor people.
- The Democratic process in the US and around the world is a mirage.
- Obama failed on two issues, Palestine and dealing with the entire Muslim world.
- That they are a peaceful non-violent movement, however, while viewing the diagram on the overhead projector showing the structure of the Sharia governing cabinet, it listed a private secretary in charge of Jihad.
