Interview with Amr Khaled
Amr Khaled says there are some 25-30 million Muslims in Europe
Interviewer: How do you view the Islamic scene in Europe?
Amr Khaled: The most important thing is that there are 25-30 million Muslims in Europe. This figure has many implications.
Interviewer: There are 25-30 million Muslims in Europe.
Amr Khaled says Muslims will have a majority in Europe in 20 years through peaceful means – babies.
Amr Khaled: The Muslims keep having children, while the Europeans don’t. This means that within 20 years, the Muslims will be a majority, which may have an exceptional influence on the decision-making. This makes other groups very angry, and they consider this to be very dangerous. These are the enemies of Islam, as we know full well. But the peoples of the West know nothing about the Muslims. Statistics show that 70% do not know who the Prophet of the Muslims is. The fact that Muhammad is the Prophet of the Muslims is not known to many people in the West. That’s just one example.
Amr Khaled says the Prophet Muhammad is unknown in the West
Interviewer: The name of the Prophet is unknown to…
Amr Khaled: Not just his name, but who he was. Even if they know the name of hte Muslims’ Prophet is Muhammad, they know nothing about him, about his history, when he lived, and so on. They know nothing about him. The goal of the enemies of Islam is to drive the 20-30 million (Muslims) out of Europe, or to provoke them in a way that would lead to their banishment. If (the Muslims) remain in Europe, this will be dangerous, so they must leave.
Amy Khaled says the West uses its sacred “freedom of speech” to attack Islam’s sacred Quran and Messenger
Interviewer: So you are making a very important claim – that there are intentional and premeditated provocations in order to drive the Muslims out of their current home – Europe.
Amr Khaled: Yes. When the offensive cartoons first appeared, it was strange to see that the button they press (to provoke) the Muslims – the Koran and the Prophet Muhammad, which are sacred to them – is the same button that is sacred to the West – freedom of speech.
What is sacred in the West – freedom of speech – is their equivalent of the Koran…That is what they hold sacred. The West is attacking what the Muslims hold sacred by means of what the West itself holds sacred.
In order to drive the Muslims out of Europe, the European peoples must have a pretext giving them legitimacy to do so, like they had in Bosnia. After all, Bosnia is in Europe, so nobody can claim this is far-fetched. Bosnia is not far away. Therefore, their solution is to continue the provocation (against the Muslims), and to continue to do things that would provoke the Muslims, who would make mistakes, such as bombings and other unusual responses. Then the European peoples would say: “What’s this? What are they doing?” Then they would have a pretext for what would follow.
Interviewer: So this is mental preparation for the Europeans to drive out the Muslim? These are very serious claims.
Amr Khaled: This is my interpretation of things. Otherwise, what do they gain by offending (the Muslims) in different ways all the time, when the outcome is known in advance?
Interviewer: It is indeed illogical.
Amy Khaled says the 30 million European Muslims need to channel their anger in support of the Prophet Muhammad and of Islam and becomgin walking propoganda machines
Amr Khaled: People will tell you that Denmark suffered economic losses [from boycotts], and this is true. So why does it continue? Because some believe that it is more beneficial to (drive out) the 30 million, and that it outweights the boycott. So they are pushing in that direction.
What is the solution? We must be very realistic and positive. What needs to be done? What we need is for the 30 million Muslims in Europe to infiltrate (society), and to show European and Western societies how respectable and successful they are.
Those are the key words: “I am respectable and successful.” If the 30 million Muslims manage to ignore these provocations, and to channel their anger in support of the Prophet Muhammad and of Islam into becoming walking propaganda machines…
Each person should say: “I am an ambassador for Islam,” and they should all take action throughout Europe – in the companies where they work, in sports clubs, and in any place where they can mingle and fit in with the Europeans, and where they can show them their moral values and their success. That will abolish the plan, and the Muslims will remain in Europe. We really need ten years for the Muslims in Europe to become firmly established and very successful.
