Ryan Mauro is National Security Analyst for He is also founder of and is frequently interviewed on Fox News.

Ryan defined an Islamist as a person who takes the faith of Islam and gives it a political context. It’s the code for governance.

The strategy employed by Islamists, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood, involves a patient, long-term effort known as “gradualism”. This is a bottom-up approach to achieving the objective of governance within a nation. In the short-term this involves converting people to the religion of Islam, destroying church support for Israel and interfaith engagement with churches and Christian organizations.

There are six long-term steps involved when gradualism is used as jihad. They include:

–Sharia over the individual.—This is where a supporter of radical Islam incorporates it into his daily life.

–Converting the family to Sharia.
–Spreading Sharia through the local society.
–Sharia takes over the government. (Egypt is currently at this stage.)
–The resurrection of the Caliphate.—This is the Islamic, Middle East “superstate” that destroys Israel.
–Mastership of the world.

Ryan also described his DVD called, “Obsession”. This documentary warns people about the threat of radical Islam by presenting interviews with former terrorists as well as utilizing footage from Middle Eastern TV stations that you won’t see anywhere else.

Learn how our government is reacting to all of this and how you can get involved in the effort to stop this Islamic strategy for ultimate victory over America.
