The group is much less restrained outside of the United States. In Indonesia, where the group has held well-attended conferences, they are demanding the stoning and caning celebrities who appear in sex tapes and want regulation to bring the Internet into accordance with Islam. The group calls upon those in power to “break down the total current system and replace it with Islamic sharia.” The HUT coordinator of a protest that numbered about 1,000 said that those that don’t perform abstinence should be publicly caned 100 times and adulterers should be stoned to death. The organization’s Facebook also links to an article attributed to their Pakistani branch calling on the Pakistani army to aim its nuclear weapons at Israel and overthrow the government so a caliphate can be created that will “remove the Jewish state.”

Zeyno Baran told FrontPage that Hizb ut-Tahrir doesn’t need a huge level of support in order to promote its ideology.

“HT does not need mass support–it aims to have support from people who are established and with influence in their communities, such as doctors, engineers, politicians etc.,” she said. “Moreover, many of HT’s ideas…have over time become mainstream Islamist ideas.”

Hizb ut-Tahrir has a three-stage plan to implement Sharia law. They first build a branch in the targeted country. They then begin an outreach effort to try to recruit as many Muslims as possible. Once a base of support is created, they begin pushing for the implementation of Sharia law. Contrary to Al-Qaeda, HUT moves incrementally and takes into account its weaknesses. The late founder of the group called for building a single country to encompass all Muslims which would then be able to spread its version of Islam to the non-Muslim world.

The text contained in a journal that used to be published by HUT members reinforces these points. The December 1995 issue says that “Jihad is impossible…without an organized military machine….The Islamic state must form an army capable of offensive attacks. The army is an integral part of delivering the message of Islam to the world.” Another issue says Muslims must “annex all the Islamic wilayah (provinces) stretching from Europe to China. Let us then see the U.S. try to meddle in our affairs.” The goal of HUT is to build and expand a state and become stronger until it can conquer further. This pragmatic mindset is why HUT has made the decision not to promote violence in the United States and to moderate its language and behavior in the West.

Hizb ut-Tahrir is a sophisticated group with a long-term, phased approach towards achieving its goals. The attendance of their last conference by 400-500 Muslims show they are making some inroads into the Muslim community. In terms of winning converts and influence, they seem to be doing a better job than Al-Qaeda. The residents of Illinois need to be aware that their city of Chicago is being used as a platform by Islamic extremists to more efficiently accomplish what Al-Qaeda has been unable to. They are at the forefront of a battle to bring Sharia law to the United States.

    Sounds like a good event to try out some new ideas in hyperbaric devices.

  • USMCSniper

    Hizb ut-Tahrir’s first conference in the U.S. was held last year in Chicago and one speaker openly called for throwing out the U.S. Constitution and putting Sharia law in its place you say! That is reason enough to kill' 'em all, wrap 'em all in their prayer rugs, put 'em in piles and burn 'em, and let Allah sort 'em out!

    • willic

      I agree. The hotel should host a big pig roast for their meals.

    • Brett

      What we need is another Black Jack Pershing who executed muslim terroirsts with bullets dipped in pigs blood, then buried them with the remains of the pig. Of course this will never happen with the current political correctness ruling the day but if things ever really get out of hand & suicide bombs are killing us left & right I could see this happening again some day.

    Why does our government allow these people in our country? Really, they hate the US, hate our Constitution, our freedoms, that women are in business and government. I say, cancel their passports, their citizenship and get them on the first boat back to Krapistan…….We are too tolerant, too permissive and too stupid !!! Wake up, Americans!!!!

      Want to cut the government and government spending in half in less than a year and at the same time be even more protected from Islamic terrorists attacks, ban and reverse Muslim immigration at the same time we revert the federal government to the way it was before 9/11.

      Hell, the only reason Bush doubled the size of the federal government and federal spending in response to 9/11 was just so we could continue to accommodate Muslim immigration and all its excess baggage.

      Wouldn't it have made more sense to ban and reverse Muslim immigration? I mean no Muslims living in the USA equals zero probability of Islamic attacks.

      Hell, we don't have any other choice really since we are on the fast track to bankruptcy, yet I don't hear anyone even proposing it.

      Moreover, Islam like Communism, Nazism, Fascism, etc. is a system of totalitarianism that needs to be defeated just like we defeated the aforementioned forms of totalitarianism before. Allowing millions of Muslims to immigrate to America is analogous to allowing millions of Communists to immigrate to America during the height of the Cold War. That would have been totally insane. Yet, that is exactly what we are doing today.

        I definitely agree with the above suggestions. You can't really trust these Muslims.

    I don't believe it….

  • Turbeaux

    Dr. Zuhdi Jasser is a fine man and a patriotic American. However, there are very few Muslims living in the West and the Islamic world that would consider him anything other than an apostate, and while he may advocate reform, the reality is he would get his throat slit in a New York second if he advocated such reform in the Islamic world. Hence, while Jasser is a very fine man and loyal America he is hardly indicative of average Muslims living in America and in the Middle East. If anything, he is an exception to the rule.

    Moreover, there is only one reason Muslims support jihad against non-Muslims and that is because it is mandated. Thus, when Muslims claim they don't support violence, it should be obvious that is taqiyya. Also, when a Muslim group refuses to denounce violence and uses a cop out lame excuse like, for instance, what happened in Falluja, it should be obvious that the Falluja excuse is taqiyya as Muslims only attack non-Muslims because it is mandated that they wage jihad against unbelievers. The reality is the obligation to make Islam supreme throughout the world is the sole reason why Muslims attack non-Muslims. While they may claim to be victims or cite stupid reasons like the Kyoto Protocols, as OBL once did to justify attacks, the real and only reason that motivates Muslims is it is mandated by their holy texts.

    The most sickening part of this whole charade by the murdering Muslims is that they intimidate the moderate Muslims who still want to practice their religion in mosque. The trouble is most of the mosques in this country are run by or infiltrated with Muslims radicals who threaten anyone if they speak against Jihad.
    We have Muslims in this country who are basically no better off than living in Saudi Arabia when comes to the same level of religious freedom we experience here in the USA. That is the real crime here!

    • Turbeaux

      Uhm…how can there be so-called moderate Muslims when Islam is a religion of submission whereby all Muslims must submit to the will of Allah and the freedom of conscience is forbidden, where apostasy is punished by death, and where to even question the will of Allah (blasphemy) is also punished by death. Hence, for a Muslim to be a moderate he would have to exercise the freedom of conscience to reject certain aspects of Islam, however, in Islam that is known as shirk, and shirk is an offense punishable by death. Hence, I ask again, how can their be so-called moderate Muslims according to you? Maybe you are confusing taqiyya spewing Muslims for moderate Muslims, but if they are devout Muslims, they are not moderate,

      • Jared

        HOW TRUE!! There is NO moderate islam. As prescribed by their imams, "MODERATE" muslim MUST sit quiet until their khalifah emerges —– then they go full rage against non-muslims.

        DECEPTION! DECEPTION! DECEPTION! —– Taqiyya method: direct lying, like Hussein Obama placing his hand on the Bible at inauguration whereas he is muslim!

        Kitman method: lying by omission, like 'islam is peace'. However, second part of this sentence is cut off; and it is "when you submit".

        Never trust SHITLAM!

  • Ghostwriter

    And Muslims continue to wonder why most Americans have a negative view of Islam. It's groups like this and their rhetoric and their belief that Islam should be forced on everyone. Maybe if they just left everyone else alone to practice their own religion in peace,they wouldn't have such problems.

  • Muslim lies exposed

    Muslims around the world cheered the destruction of the WTC in NYC. Supporting the Palestinians (Yes they're Muslims too!) is tantamount to treason. Post ICE agents at these events and check their documentation. Boot out the illegal ones. LONG LIVE ISRAEL!

  • Rockmelon

    The only way to regain relative peace is to kill all of the muslims before they kill us. but of course, WE can't do that so we'll just have to accept the consequences.
