A. SUMMARY

-- Muslim Brotherhood seeks to create a Muslim World (caliphate/Khilafa)
-- We believe there is ONE world, called Earth - with equal rights and liberty for all humanity
-- Barack Obama on "the war we need to win": America's enemies "seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for."

-- Muslim Brotherhood seeks to implement Sharia law
-- We seek freedom for all - regardless of religion, race, or sex - and oppose Sharia's gender apartheid and war on women

-- Muslim Brotherhood thinks Muslims come first
-- We believe humanity comes first

-- Muslim Brotherhood seeks to impose Islam on all
-- We believe humanity has freedom of conscience and religion

-- MAS has supported Muslim Brotherhood, Hizb ut-Tahrir, and groups that call for Islamic surpemacist rule
-- We reject supremacism in every form in favor of equality and liberty for all

-- MAS's Esam Omeish: "The influence of Muslim Brotherhood ideas has been instrumental.... [on MAS] values of human dialogue, tolerance and moderation"
-- We believe that human dialogue, tolerance, and moderation begins with rejecting all supremacist organizations, including the Islamic supremacist Muslim Brotherhood, and that supremacist organizations never teach tolerance or moderation

-- MAS's Esam Omeish: "The influence of Muslim Brotherhood ideas... has been instrumental in defining our worldviews of justice and human rights"
-- We believe that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Declaration of Liberty defines our worldview of the inalienable human rights of equality and liberty for all -- that supremacist groups deny. We believe without such universal equality and liberty, freed from supremacist restraints, there will never be justice, nor will all of humanity have human rights.

-- The Muslim Brotherhood matters in Esam Omeish's campaign because he says so they have defined his worldview of "justice" and "dialogue." Esam Omeish has stated that "influence of Muslim Brotherhood ideas has been instrumental" in his views on human rights and values
-- We believe that an effective Democratic candidate for the 35th district would have values based on the inalienable human rights of equality and liberty for all, not a supremacist worldview

HLF Exhibit GX 3-85 -- "An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group" - Mohamed Akram - May 22, 1991

One citation from the document "General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America"makes the objectives of the MB clear: "The process of settlement is a 'Civilization-Jihadist Process' with all the word means. The 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."

"They have this idea that Muslims come first, not that humans come first," says Mustafa Saied, 32, a Floridian who left the U.S. Brotherhood in 1998.

The Egyptian government legalized the Brotherhood again in 1948, but only as a religious organization; it was banned again in 1954 because it insisted that Egypt be governed under shari'a (Islamic law).

The Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna in
response to the then-recent collapse of the Muslim Caliphate. Al-Banna called for establishment of a world Islamic state governed by Koranic law, ruled by a single caliph.
