I frequently meet with disbelief when I explain that the Islamist goal is to take over the United States and replace the Constitution with the Koran. Well, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and here is that picture, culled from "The American Muslim" website:

The Arabic written across the United States is the basmalah, usually translated into English as "In the Name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate."
