For most Americans, July is a time to celebrate their country's freedom and independence. But one radical Islamic group will do the opposite. In fact, Hizb ut-Tahrir believes in the abolishment of the U.S. Constitution by way of a worldwide Islamic state, or caliphate.
CBN News Terrorism Analyst Erick Stakelbeck reported the upcoming Hizb ut-Tahrir event on U.S. soil on the latest episode of his new CBN News show, 'Stakelbeck on Terror'. The segment on the program was entitled "Sharia Flaw," and featured Stakelbeck's analysis.
Stakelbeck appeared on The 700 Club to explain more about the Islamic group and why they are so dangerous.

"The Islamists who want to impose sharia law in America don't just have regional aspirations," Stakelbeck explained. "They want global Islamic domination. One influential group that preaches exactly that is Hizb-ut-Tahrir."
The terror-linked group wants to see a worldwide Islamic state-or caliphate--re-established. Although the group has been banned in Germany, Russia, the Netherlands and many Middle Eastern countries, Hizb ut-Tahrir is still welcome in the United States.

"Welcome to America. Give us your tired, your poor and your Islamic jihadists," Stakelbeck said. "Subduing the world under an Islamic caliphate -- it's just another in a long list of sharia flaws."
Hizb ut-Tahrir's event was originally slated to be held at a Marriot Hotel outside of Chicago on July 11, but the hotel cancelled the event due to public pressure. The group will now hold the conference in late July at an as-yet-undisclosed location.
