There are 34 mosques in North Carolina, according to the Web site Islamic Valley. What goes on in them I can’t say. It could be that all are run and frequented by moderate followers of Islam rather that radical Islamo-fascists, but how are we to know. It certainly isn’t by the public denunciations of Islamic terror because there have been pitifully few of those. Imagine if Christians were killing people all over the world in the name of Jesus and Billy Graham hid in his mountain retreat and said nothing. It just wouldn’t happen.

Now comes information that shows we should be concerned what happens in that innocent-looking mosque down the street. Dallas Morning News columnist Rod Dreher points out that information is coming out of the Holy Land Foundation trial in Dallas that is being largely ignored by the media. It’s a tract from the Muslim Brotherhood outlining its long-haul strategy for North America. Says Dreher:

The entire 18-page platform outlines a plan for the long haul. It prescribes the Muslim Brotherhood’s comprehensive plan to set down roots in civil society. It begins by both founding and taking control of American Muslim organizations, for the sake of unifying and educating the U.S. Muslim community – this to prepare it for the establishment of a global Islamic state governed by sharia. …

This matters because high-profile organizations with roots explicitly in the Muslim Brotherhood have successfully established themselves in a paramount position to define Islam in America according to a radical politicized model. And they’ve done so without the American public having the slightest idea about their real agenda.

Readers of Carolina Journal and Carolina Journal Online have already been alerted. The Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration into North Carolina was documented by Carolina Journal Editor Richard Wagner in an article in January.

UPDATE (9/14): Scott Johnson of Power Line agrees with me that this needs more exposure.
