The man who unsuccessfully challenged House Speaker Paul Ryan in a Republican primary last year is now releasing a documentary highlighting what he sees as a threat to the United States through a coordinated Muslim migration strategy.
Nehlen says hijrah can refer to multiple ideas, ranging from leaving sin behind to Mohammed’s journey from Mecca to Medina. However, he says Islamic texts clearly speak about strategic migration.
“Hijrah means ‘migration in the name of Allah,'” said Nehlen, who says the ultimate goal is to populate non-Muslim nations to the extent needed to impose Sharia law.
“The hijrah is one way of spreading the Sharia, spreading the law of Islam, this political doctrine, to land where Islam isn’t. That’s what this documentary covers. It talks about the bigger picture here of what we saw here . It stems directly from their fundamental texts,” said Nehlen.
He says hijrah is another method by which Muslims can earn their salvation.
“Quite unlike a Christian, who believes you can’t earn your way in and only by the grace of God are you granted access to heaven through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, Muslims believe they can earn their way in. They believe they have to earn their way in,” said Nehlen.
In addition to explaining hijrah in his documentary, Nehlen says he made the film to counter the conventional wisdom offered by the media.
“What is portrayed in the mainstream media is so far from the truth that what I learned prior to and during my campaign compelled me to make this documentary to expose it for what it is and really to point out the massive hypocrisy in our refugee resettlement mechanisms in this country,” said Nehlen.
Specifically, Nehlen takes aim at the nine voluntary agencies, or volags, that facilitate refugee resettlement in the U.S.
“[They] receive over a billion dollars to resettle people who are predominantly – almost exclusively – Muslims into this country,” he said.
And he says the financial research he’s done shows more refugees admitted to the U.S. mean a lot of money for the volags.
“I researched these nine volags and all of their top people – I researched five deep into their salaries – and they’re making six-figure salaries. In fact, the highest-paid individual is making over $650,000 a year,” said Nehlen.
“When you have a profit motive that large to bring people in and you’re making more money by bringing more people in, you can’t argue that this is a humanitarian-only issue. This is a profit-driven issue,” he added.
He also claims not all the volags are as they seem based on their names.
“You have groups that have very Christian-sounding names, but the reality is they are being co-opted by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. They are working on behalf of the United Nations, which is clearly working at odds to the United States,” said Nehlen.
Nehlen says this concern over a de facto Muslim invasion is not just theoretical. He says the apprehension of a suspicious person photographing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge years ago ultimately led to a trove of unvarnished Muslim Brotherhood documents.
He read from one that directly references strategic migration.
“The process of settlement is a civilization jihadist process with all the word means. The Iquan, Arabic for Muslim Brotherhood, must understand that their work in America is kind of a grand jihad, eliminating and destroying the western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that is it eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions,” read Nehlen.
Nehlen is strongly urging Congress to pass HR 377, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act.
“It will roll back 60 years of work the Muslim Brotherhood has done,” said Nehlen.
Defenders of refugee resettlement and general Muslim migration contend the vast majority of Muslims are looking for a peaceful opportunity to pursue physical and financial security for their families. However, Nehlen says polling shows more than 50 percent of Muslims in the U.S. want to see Sharia law trump the Constitution as the final legal authority in the U.S..
“We are seeing Islamist Muslims who are reading directly from their documents and doing what is prescribed in their documents. It is inarguable. You cannot argue that this religion is being perverted. It is not being perverted. It is being practiced in a fundamental way to spread Sharia around the world,” said Nehlen.
And he says giving ground at the margins is a sure-fire way to lose the fight.
“There is no reason that a country should give up its culture, its heroes, its holidays, its traditions in order to make way for a new culture, new traditions, new holidays, new heroes. That’s not what a nation state is all about. I for one will not stand by and watch it happen,” said Nehlen.
