Leader of Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait tours the West, calls for a new caliphate and more "cyber-jihad"

A perfect example of taqiyya, or lying to protect your religion and yourself.  Tareq Al-Suwaidan is the smooth Islamist, saying what the Western ears want to hear while saying the exact opposite to his fellow jihadists.  Time and again this practice is done and we do nothing.  As long as people like Al-Suwaidan spouts words of bridge-building, interfaith dialogue and multicultural tolerance our dear leaders will lap it up, believing that everything is OK now that there is a "moderate" Muslim in the room.

Knuckleheads, the entire lot of them.

Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood Leader And Director Of Saudi Al-Risala TV Tareq Al-Suwaidan Tours West, Promoting Restoration Of Caliphate And New Era Of Cyber Jihad

Tareq Al-Suwaidan, 58, is a prominent Kuwaiti Islamist preacher and a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait,[1] as well as a popular Islamic motivational speaker and TV preacher; he earns more than $1 million a year from his talks and TV shows. His CD "Lives of the Prophets" has sold well over two million copies.[2]

Al-Suwaidan has strong ties to the West, from attending high school and college and residing in the U.S. to preaching to large audiences in the U.K. and Canada, as well as in Australia – where he is visiting June 9-18, to speak in Melbourne and Sydney. He speaks to Western audiences at venues such as Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar; his followers and his audiences in the West range from groups of recent converts to Islam to fundraising events for major Muslim American organizations. He frequently supports Western and U.S. Muslim organizations. While Al-Suwaidan's speeches and remarks in English are often moderate,[3] in Arabic he often espouses extremist ideas.

Lived 17 Years In The U.S.

In a 2006 interview, Al-Suwaidan said that he lived in the U.S. from age 17; he attended high school there, and subsequently "graduated from the University of Oklahoma in the United States in petroleum engineering with a minor in management" and went on to remain in the country for 17 years,[4] also earning a B.S. from Pennsylvania State University.

In an interview on Hamas's Al-Quds TV that aired on March 26, 2012, Al-Suwaidan discussed his experiences living in the U.S. and his antisemitic views, and noting that Jews control both "money and the media." He said: "We rely upon Allah and then upon our armed resistance in obtaining our rights." He continued: "The most dangerous thing facing the Muslims is not the dictatorships. The absolutely most dangerous thing is the Jews. They are the most dangerous. They are the greatest enemy." The following is the transcript of the interview...
