Egyptian journalist 'Ata Abd Al-Aal told an Egyptian religious channel that "the U.S. will be transformed into an Islamic Republic" due to the large number of converts each year. He also gave advice on how to raise the number of converts and encouraged them to participate in the U.S. electoral system.
"The Islamic institutions in the Islamic world should send preachers who are well versed in Islam, who know how to preach to the American mentality, and who are proficient in English and can communicate with the Americans," Abd Al-Aal told Egyptian religious channel Al-Rahma/Al-Rawdha TV. "The rate of converts to Islam in the U.S. is very high. This is of great alarm to the Zionist circles in the U.S., because this rate is rising on a daily basis. These converts adhere to Islam with total conviction. They become preachers themselves, and convince others to convert to Islam."
Al-Rahma TV was previously banned in European countries, such as France, for calling for violence against Jews. "Your turn has come at last, you offspring of apes and pigs, you most accursed creatures created by Allah, you people who have harmed the Prophet again and again," Egyptian cleric Hazem Shuman said on an Oct. 31, 2009, Al-Rahma TV broadcast. "The Jews have proven they are like a cancer, if they are not removed from the body of the nation, they will kill the entire nation… The Jews are dangerous to the whole world."
