The aim of Islam in America

I've finally come across the original article quoting the then chairman of CAIR* (Council of American Islamic Relations), Omar M. Ahmad, stating clearly the aim of Islam in the US.  This is especially significant in that CAIR is the "go-to" outfit for the US government when it wants to find out what the "Muslim street" in the US thinks about any issue.
Here is Ahmad's key statement from the article:
Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant, he said.  The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth, he said.
This is entirely consisted with the core doctrines in Islam -- the Koran, the Hadith and the Sirah, or life of Muhammad.  It's also consistent with the aims of the Muslim Brotherhood, of which CAIR is an American representative.
Pour memoire, the motto of the Brotherhood, is:

Allah is our objective
The Prophet is our leader
The Koran is our law
Jihad is our way
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.
