Islamic by 2050?

WorldNetDaily reports on a Washington, D.C. imam who says he's part of a movement to replace the US government "with 'the Islamic State of North America' by 2050."

A Washington, D.C., imam states explicitly on the
website for his organization that he is part of a movement working toward replacement of the U.S. government with "the Islamic State of North America" by 2050.

With branches in Oakland, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento and Philadelphia, the group As-Sabiqun – or the Vanguard – is under the leadership of Abdul Alim Musa in the nation's capital.
Musa's declaration of his intention to help lead a takeover of America was
highlighted by noted Islam observer Robert Spencer on his website Jihad Watch.

Spencer told WND that figures such as Musa should not be ignored, "Not because they have the power to succeed, but because they may commit acts of violence to achieve their purpose."

In addition to what Spencer says, I would also note that the activities of Musa and his kind are instructive as to the motives of many Islamists living and operating in the United States.
