We'll there's a new film coming out the takes a look at a group called the Muslim Brotherhood and its influence around the world.
And here at home.
The documentary is called the grand deception and -- described described with the filmmakers call the dual nature of the Muslim Brotherhood.
To the outside world it tries to present a moderate -- -- claim the filmmakers.
All the while hiding more radical goals including goals.
For America here's a clip from the trailer.
The Muslim Brotherhood is an international movement the goal of which.
Is to create an Islamic state.
All over the world.
In my mind the most important that it is -- -- -- -- it's.
Twenty speech and if you didn't have -- it.
And beating the people who really.
Don't know hey I.
They believe that western civilization.
Is evil this decadent.
And they want to.
The film's producer Steve Emerson he's also the founder of the investigative project on terrorism Steve welcome back on the program.
Timing so what is -- about is it about the Muslim Brotherhood in America or around the world.
Well it's it's primarily about the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical Islamic off shoots in the United States.
That hide under the moniker of being quote civil rights groups or innocent religious groups that in fact.
Have an ulterior agenda and our members of the larger Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure intact.
All we did was to video secretly.
Behind closed doors radical rallies of Muslim Brotherhood organizations in the United States.
And capture their statements in which based talk about supporting Jihad supporting taking over the United States supporting terrorism.
Calling the United States -- an entirely on Muslim power and claiming that all arrests since 9/11 were fabricated.
And then publicly before the news cameras before the -- times are on television they claim they're against terrorism they claim -- for peace and -- and for love.
And that -- for moderation but in fact.
It's a grand deception and the reason I called the movie the grand deception is -- it come -- actually an FBI wiretap.
Of radical Islamic members of Hamas secretly meeting in Philadelphia 1993.
Which the FBI wiretap.
In which they openly talked about the use of deceptions to -- the American public -- in making a public believe that they're actually moderate.
When they really are supporters of a Hamas a known notorious terrorist group.
There is -- sound -- in the film from the director of the Islamic Society of North America.
Speaks to the points you just raise I wanna play that for the viewers now does it sound like number three control room.
-- -- -- job is.
Do it changed economists -- -- and all a matter.
There is a systematic plan.
An Islamist beachhead in the United States with the eventual goal -- watching the United States crumble from within and establishing.
Some cruel and this country.
-- this present day Steve.
Look -- they know -- they have to clean up their act.
And they did since 9/11 since the language they were using before nine elevenths was to incendiary and they didn't think anybody was watching.
Now they know people are watching but we still go behind closed doors my organization the investigative project on terrorism sins in dozens of informants every month.
To record secretly will be -- goes on behind closed doors and the proof is in the pudding that.
The man who it's just said we appreciate -- -- -- and is speaking at a rally actually.
Where they head of the American Muslim Council.
A man named mr.
all of moody who for thirteen years was Muslim invited to the White House the CIA the FBI -- -- that congress.
And yet for in nineteen in 2003 was arrested for conspiracy.
Involving al-Qaeda to murder the head of Saudi Arabia.
And in the indictment it showed that for the previous eight years Wally had access to the White House why it axis of the FBI while he was -- the brought by the State Department.
He was secretly a member of and a courier for Hamas and al-Qaeda and this is -- deception I want.
Talk to you about one of the more shocking clips in the in the documentary of this man who was who is giving the indication before the US congress and then.
Shortly there after talks about the US being a garbage cans -- gonna play that discuss it next.
-- most gracious most merciful.
Guy and the leaders of this nation.
We've been given a great responsibility will only -- Guide them and grant them righteousness and wisdom -- defend this country.
-- this country is.
Steve -- -- back with me now the producer of a new film -- coming out called the grand deception who was that got.
-- to a -- is a major -- mom from Brooklyn.
Who is actually.
Who opened the first was the first Muslim -- -- the indication of congress in 1991.
But in fact is a very very radical no militant Muslim cleric was called for Jihad he has supported terrorism in fact he was an unindicted co conspirator.
In the 1993.
World Trade Center bombing case and believe it or not despite all that has come out including his unindicted status.
To this very day.
He is still being invited to and paid for by US government agencies to speak it counterterrorism conferences -- and this goes on I mean.
This is just one example in the film.
There are dozens of other examples where radical Islamic groups and when I say radical Islamic groups from Muslim brother groups it's not meet the fining them.
We're using the words that they themselves used -- that documents.
-- found that but let's -- different revenue grew up against a heartbreak I wanted to test is there is there a difference because we are told that the Muslim Brotherhood some factions of -- much more moderate.
This I give -- from the New York Times.
It is at its core -- middle class missionary institution led by.
Not by religious scholars but by doctors lawyers and professionals we were told over and Egypt -- that's what the must -- Muslim Brotherhood look like not so much these radicals.
No in fact they they are not -- they are doctors and lawyers and engineers they are the Muslim Brotherhood the -- Muslim Brotherhood is made up mostly.
Of its leaders of a doctor doctor Ayman Al zawahiri the number two of al-Qaeda after the deceased Osama bin Laden is -- it was it but it pediatrician.
As surgeon so in fact they didn't Muslim Brotherhood is a totalitarian.
There's no doubt about that it's what they -- themselves what they -- in their website what they say in speeches that we have on the film.
But then before the New York Times which pretends that they are simply -- political and moderate.
They present themselves with a facade of being peaceful nothing could be further from the truth and that's basic essence of the film -- is to -- the duplicity of how these groups pretend to be moderate.
But behind closed doors are as radical as the -- that -- Steve thanks for being here.
