    Glenn Beck lifts 'caliphate' to the top of Google Trends with conspiracy theory - National Political Buzz | Examiner.com :laugh2:

    <excerpt>
    According to Beck, the Egyptian revolution is not about the citizens of the country fighting for their political rights or better economic conditions. Instead, the Egyptian people are being "played" by the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is also part of larger movement by progressives and Marxist to take over much of the world in the pursuit of "social justice." Under Beck theory the Egyptian revolution will not only spread to other countries the Middle East, but also to India and Europe. The caliphate will consist of India and much of Southeast Asia, in addition to Portugal, Spain, France, and the United Kingdom.

    obviously not listening to what he actually says.

    I love how you just presume that they want the same form of government we do.

    ‘An Explanatory Memorandum’
    The Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic plan for North America was a closely-held secret until the FBI discovered it during a 2004 raid of a house in Annandale, Virginia. Agents discovered a secret basement containing internal Ikhwan documents, including the strategic plan titled, “An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group.”The strategic plan was written by a member of the Board of Directors for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America and senior Hamas leader named Mohammed Akram, and was approved by the Brotherhood’s Shura Council and Organizational Conference in 1987.
    The plan establishes the mission of the Muslim Brother in North America in this following passage:
    FBI Captured Muslim Brotherhood’s Strategic Plan

    An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America
    by Mohamed Akram
    May 19, 1991
    Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim's destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.

    "1. IN EGYPT, an extraordinarily important fatwa has been issued by Dr. Imad Mustafa, of al-Azhar University, the world’s most important Islamic university.

    2. …Mustafa has publicly and explicitly come up with a new concept, one that up until now was supposedly restricted to groups like al-Qaida: “Then there is another type of fighting against the non- Muslims known as offensive jihad... which is to pursue the infidels into their own land without any aggression [on their part]...

    3. “Two schools [of Islamic jurisprudence] have ruled that offensive jihad is permissible in order to secure Islam’s border, to extend God’s religion to people in cases where the governments do not allow it, such as the Pharaoh did with the children of Israel, and to remove every religion but Islam from the Arabian peninsula.”

    4. …this means that it is permissible to wage jihad against a country if anything “necessary” to Islam according to (hard-line) clerics’ interpretations is blocked (polygamy, child marriage, special privileges at work places, building mosques anywhere, permitting the wearing of head scarves or burkas).

    5. In practice, according to this doctrine, then, any non-Muslim can be attacked anywhere. Thus, mainstream, powerful clerics are now calling for a seventh century- style jihad against non-Muslim lands even if the victims cannot be accused of attacking Muslim ruled lands. Merely to “extend God’s religion” to others is a sufficient motive. Mustafa says that two of Islam’s main schools have always endorsed offensive jihad, but I doubt if he would have made that argument ten or 20 years ago.

    6. …radical groups now have mainstream support for their most extreme, aggressive behavior. Even if nobody repeats Mustafa’s statement publicly – if for no other reasons than it is bad public relations in the West – this idea will be more and more taken for granted. Presumably, Mustafa won’t be forced to retract this fatwa by his colleagues or Egypt’s government.

    7. Moreover, we probably won’t see senior clerics denouncing and rejecting the doctrine of offensive jihad.
    This is a development of stupendous proportions that will probably not be covered in the Western mass media. If this viewpoint continues to spread, along with the growing al-Qaida type doctrine of the Muslim Brotherhood, it could be a historical turning point that will greatly intensify revolutionary Islamist terrorism and attacks on the West.

    Not surprising as Beck's lost about one-third of his audience.
    I get my information from reading, not watching him.

    Beck?
    Prior to the Iraq invasion he was all for spreading democracy in the ME. Now he supports dictators.
    Who does he think he is? John Kerry?

    what does that have to do with "if it wasn't for liberals, i would have very little idea what glenn beck says"...?

    it doesn't, but you of course have to bash him while stupidly ignoring that you help keep in the news and his words spreading...it doesn't matter how you get his words, you LISTEN to his words and then spread them around the net all the while bitching about him and laughing that he has lost listeners

    the irony is obviously to high level for you

    The question is, why would Beck care? Isn't his schtick pretty much that we ought not give a shit what goes on the ME in the first place,

    or did he trade that idea in for one that's a better draw?
