Egypt's MuBro Chief Articulates His Movement's Mission (a.k.a. "The Nahda Project")

In a speech to the faithful last month, Khairat al-Shater said:
Everywhere, the Ikhwan are working to restore Islam in its all-encompassing conception to the lives of people, and they believe that this will only come about through the strong society. Thus the mission is clear: restoring Islam in its all-encompassing conception; Subjugating people to God; instituting the religion of God; the Islamization of life, empowering of God’s religion; establishing the Nahda of the Ummah on the basis of Islam. All of these synonymous phrases give the same meaning, intention or definition, and that is the overall mission which we are seeking to accomplish as Ikhwan.
Nahda lot of wiggle room there. More like "submit--or else!"
