BBC World Service to do program on the Muslim Brotherhood

My letter to the Beebs:

I’m glad you’re going to do a program on the Muslim Brotherhood.
I hope you will have read “Muslim Mafia”. 

And will also mention the stated aim of the Muslim Brotherhood in the US:

“The Ikhwan [the Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions.”  [ref]

This is backed up by David Gaubatz’s on-going research into US mosques [ref below] indicating the great majority of them carry materials quoting the Pakistani Islamist Sheik Mawdudi as follows:
“The objective of Islamic Jihad is to put an end to the dominance of the un-Islamic systems of government and replace them with Islamic rule. Islam intends to bring about this revolution not in one country or in a few countries, but in the entire world.”
Gaubatz says -- and surely this is unarguable --
“Americans have a legitimate right to be concerned about the intentions of Islamic based terrorist groups operating inside our country” [ref]
 PS: why does the World Service use the largest figure of the number of Muslim worldwide (1.6 million), which I assume is the Pew Project figure, when even the CAIR — renowned for exaggerating figures for the US — says there are 1.2 billion?  There’s no need surely, to give the very highest figure.

Looking forward to the show on the World Service.

Yours etc.
