We disclose the commandments placed on society by Islamic doctrine

The Center for the Study of Political Islam are a non-profit, non-political and non- religious international educational movement dedicated to the understanding of Islamic politics. Political Islam is the part of Islam that concerns the Kafir (non-Muslim). 51% of the main Islamic doctrinal texts deal with the Kafir. By using scientific methods of examination, now the politics become clear and easy to understand.

Global Anti-Aggression Campaign

The Global Anti-Aggression Campaign (GAAC) is an anti-Western coalition of Islamist leaders affiliated with al Qaida, the Ummah Conference and/or the Muslim Brotherhood. GAAC’s platform closely mirrors the Ummah Conference’s objectives of confronting western and foreign aggression through political activism and jihad.

GAAC’s founding statement sets forth the goal of confronting the west:

“The Muslim ummah – in this era – is facing a vicious aggression from the powers of tyranny and injustice, from the Zionist power and the American administration led by the extreme right, which is working to achieve control over nations and peoples, and is stealing their wealth, and annihilating their will, and changing their educational curriculums and social orders.

…And in resistance to this aggression, the signatories of this statement announce the Global Anti Aggression Campaign as a vessel uniting the efforts of the children of the ummah, and to remind [the ummah] of its obligation for victory, and to raise [the ummah’s] awareness for its right of self-defense, and to combat the aggressor in a legal manner through effective tools.” [1]

Rabih Haddad was the executive director of the GAAC.[2] Haddad co-founded the Global Relief Foundation (GRF) in Illinois, which was designated by the U.S. and UN for providing support to al-Qaida. Haddad was subsequently deported from the United States.[3]

In a March 2010 interview, Haddad clarified GAAC’s name and purpose, responding to a question asking why GAAC uses the Arabic word Qawim (meaning resist) in its name, rather than Jihad:

There is no doubt that the desired purpose is jihad for the sake of Allah, but during the last year and due to the influence of the western media and misperception of a great number of Muslims regrettably by this media, the word (jihad) and the word (jahid) sparked an emotional and mental reaction when mentioned, and I am speaking here of all people generally. For that reason, we wanted to go beyond that limitation to communicate our message of awareness in order to revive the children of the ummah and inform them of the plans of our enemies, and to appeal to their efforts and recruitment into the resistance against this aggressor. With this I do not mean to dismiss or halt the jihad, or to substitute one term with another, but rather it’s a media tactic nothing more.[4]

 

The Secretary General of GAAC, Abd al-Rahman al-Nuaimi, also serves as the president of Alkarama in Geneva.[5] Ummah Conference leader Hakim al-Mutairi serves on GAAC’s board of trustees,[6]and Hassan al-Diqqi is a founding member of GAAC.[7]

Other founding members of GAAC include the following leaders from Islamist movements around the world:[8]

○ Abbas Arwa: Secretary of Alkarama[9] and a leader of the Ummah Conference’s Rachad Movement in Algeria.[10]

○ Khalifa Mohammad al-Rabban: a council member of Alkarama and a Qatari businessman.[11]

○ Safar al-Hawali and Salman al-Odah: influential Saudi clerics and leaders of the Saudi Sahwa movement, who provided early ideological support to Osama bin Laden.[12]

○ Yousef al-Qaradawi: a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated religious leader who advocates for violent jihad including in Syria, Iraq and Palestine. Qaradawi established and led the Union for Good–a group designated by the US government for providing financial support to Hamas.[13]

○ Tareq Suwaidan: a senior Muslim Brotherhood figure in Kuwait.[14]

○ Essam El-Erian: a senior Muslim Brotherhood leader in Egypt.[15]

○ Ibrahim Abd al Halim Mustafa Zayd al Kilani, Abd al Latif Sleiman Salim Arabiyat, Hamza Abbas Mansour, and Azam Jamil Faris al-Haniedi: members of the Islamic Action Front, the

Jordanian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.[16]

○ Harith al-Dhari: designated by the U.S. government for providing support to al Qaida in Iraq.[17]

○ Hamid al-Ali: a former leader of Salafi Movement in Kuwait, designated by the US government for providing support to al-Qaida in Iraq.[18]

○ Hamed Bitawi,[19] Mohammad Adlouni,[20] Mohammad Sawalha,[21] Khaled al-Mishaal[22]: Hamas leaders and supporters.

○ Mohammad Abdallah al-Roken, Ali Hussein al-Hamadi, Mohammad abd al-Razzak Siddiq, and Hamad Hussein Ruqait: members of Al Eslah in the UAE.[23]
