Tunisia, Egypt: Is this the Start of the Return of the Caliphate?

by Arthur Kemp, BNP News, Jan 31, 2011

The mass uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt, while being portrayed as pro-democracy protests by the controlled media, are more likely to end in Islamist takeovers and could well lay the foundation for the return of the Islamic Caliphate of old.

This is the opinion of British National Party foreign affairs spokesman Arthur Kemp, who has specialised in the history of Islam and its conflict with the West.

"The underlying force behind the uprising in Egypt is an organisation called the Muslim Brotherhood, which is one of the modern world's oldest Islamist organisations," Mr Kemp told a recent party meeting.

"The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928, and has since spread to Bahrain, Syria, the Palestinian territories, Jordan, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Algeria, Sudan, Somalia, Tunisia and Libya.

"In addition it has followed mass Muslim immigration into Europe and even the United States," he said.

"According to that organisation's website, all Islamic governments must be based on sharia law and unified in a Caliphate, or one great Muslim state as was the case during the period immediately following the founding of that religion," Mr Kemp continued.

"Most of the modern Arab Muslim states are in fact artificial divisions created by European colonial powers, many after the destruction of the Ottoman Empire at the end of the First World War.

The Muslim Brotherhood is in fact banned in Egypt, but is still active by way of proxy or front organisations and was implicated in the assassination of former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.

"He was killed for agreeing to sign a peace accord with Israel, which the Muslim Brotherhood views as an instrument of the West in the Middle East and a stumbling block to the creation of the Caliphate," Mr Kemp continued.

The founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan al-Banna, declared his organisation's aim to 'reclaim Islam's manifest destiny, an empire, stretching from Spain to Indonesia.'

Al-Banna went on to say that the Muslim Brotherhood's credo was as follows: 'Allah is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.'

"The current set of dictatorships in the Middle East, Egypt and Saudi Arabia included, are seen by the Islamists as Western puppets, and hence deserving of being overthrown," Mr Kemp continued.

"It is thus unlikely, as the controlled media is obviously hoping will be the case, that the current unrest in Arab states is the precursor to a great wave of democracy.

"Rather it is more likely that it will be the precursor to a renewed wave of Islamism which will in turn renew the 1,300 year long open war of Islam against the West.

Mr Kemp referred to a recent (September 2010) sermon, published on the Muslim Brotherhood website, delivered by that organisation's current 'Supreme Guide' Muhammad Badi', titled 'How Islam Confronts the Oppression and Tyranny [against the Muslims].'

"Badi' pointedly accused the Arab regimes of employing tyranny against their peoples, of avoiding confrontation with the Muslims' real enemies - Israel and America - and of disregarding Allah's commandment to wage jihad against the infidels," Mr Kemp said.

"He stated that the Arab governments are 'disregarding Allah's Commandment to Wage Jihad' and that 'many Arab and Muslim regimes have not managed to build up their peoples, due to their weakness and their dependence [on the West], and in many cases they have begun to work against the interests of the [Muslim] nation,'" he added.

"Badi' went on to say that the Arab governments have 'disregarded Allah's commandment to wage jihad for His sake with [their] money and [their] lives, so that Allah's word will reign supreme and the infidels' word will be inferior.'

"Although the current Arab regimes are indeed dictatorships, what is likely to replace them is bound to be far worse," Mr Kemp warned.

"It is like Iraq once again: the promise to bring 'democracy' ended up in the creation of yet another Islamist nightmare.

"If the Caliphate does re-emerge from the current wave of unrest sweeping the Arab world, then Europe must steel itself for a renewed conflict with that religious-political force of old.

"If this does happen, and God forbid that it does, then it will be vital for Europeans to get rid of their traitor politicians who have encouraged and supported mass Islamic immigration into Europe, because that is the fifth column which will ultimately destroy all of Europe."

By Arthur Kemp. For centuries, violent Muslims have been trying to capture Europe for Islam. Sweeping out from its origin in Saudi Arabia, Islam has expanded through violent conquest into North Africa, the Middle and Near East, and very nearly into Europe itself, attacking through Spain, Italy, and the Balkans.

Each time, the Islamic hordes were turned back by a united European military effort. Today, the Islamic invasion is not being carried out with sieges, scimitars, or cannon, but rather by immigration, birth rates, and demographics. Given current trends, Europe is set to be overrun before the end of this century.

This book puts the current crisis into historical perspective, showing that instead of being a "religion of peace," violent Islam has, in fact, been waging war on all its self-appointed opponents since its inception.

Finally, this book dares to say what must be done if Europe is to avoid succumbing to the new invasion. The choice is hard, but is one which will determine whether Western Civilisation lives or dies.
