Ok, after still more digging, i've found this interesting little nugget within what seems to be a review of sorts of the text.

Pardon the poor translation, google's software can only do so much

Translated link

Primarily, the Project do not propose a support for terrorism, but rather a “project of company which places the group above the individual, the divine authority above human freedom, the text crowned above the profane laws”.

Sounds kind of communist if you ask me....

From the same review, again, i'm sorry for the poor translation:

Comes then the very serious question from the relations of the Moslem Brothers with Al-Qaïda and terrorist Islamism: a thing is sure, points out Sylvain Besson, the Brothers firmly condemned the attacks of September 11, 2001 in what they are responsible for the massacre for civil innocent. On the other hand, when one comes to the responsibilities for these attacks, the United States, because of their policy towards the Palestinians amongst other things, is guilty truths. Moreover, Al-Qaradawi puts forth the assumption of an internal plot in the United States, without which these atrocities could not have been made.
Sylvain Besson concludes from his investigation that the speech of the Moslem Brothers is with double edge, since they say yes to the “jihad” and not to terrorism. Concretely, that means that the civil innocent ones should not be attacked, but that the attacks of Hamas against the Israelis are legitimate, since through their conflict with the Palestinians they are the direct enemies of Islam.

So this person's take on this book is that The Project is pro-jihad, but not pro-terrorism.

Just to be extra clear, a definition of jihad:


Jihad is an Arabic word that means "striving in the way of God." This striving can take a number of forms, including the daily inner struggle to be a better person. However, jihad is often used to refer to an armed struggle fought in defense of Islam.

A new source to support my contention that the Iranians letter to Bush is part of something larger:

Memri makes a link between the Bush letter and another written from the Shah to Russia in the 80's.

Prepare, invite, then overtake. The preperations are done, the invitations are out there, and now...

Selective Memri?

Evidence from Memri's website also casts doubt on its non-partisan status. Besides supporting liberal democracy, civil society, and the free market, the institute also emphasises "the continuing relevance of Zionism to the Jewish people and to the state of Israel".

That is what its website used to say, but the words about Zionism have now been deleted. The original page, however, can still be found in internet archives.
