London, Sep 16 (ANI): Security analysts have warned in a new report that America is 'under attack' by a non-violent 'stealth jihad', with fundamentalists attempting to bring Islamic law known as 'Shariah' to the United States.

The report, sponsored by the Center for Security Policy and touted by a handful of conservative lawmakers on Capitol Hill, said that the violent threat posed by the Al Qaeda and other terror groups is outmatched by the threat from jihadists allegedly trying to change American society from within, Fox News reports.

"This form of warfare includes multi-layered cultural subversion, the co-opting of senior leaders, influence operations and propaganda and other means of insinuating Shariah into Western societies," the study said.

The report has cited Muslim Brotherhood to be the most dominant organization trying to attain that goal, but expressed concern more about America's vulnerability than any marquee successes by the so-called 'stealth' jihadists.

"Just as we cannot say all Muslims hold a certain view based on the actions of a radical fringe. It would be unwise to discount the malicious intentions of those that wish to subvert American law," said Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz at a press conference on Wednesday.

The report has urged the government to be more watchful by threatening Shariah-promoting imams with investigation and monitoring the contents of school textbooks. (ANI)
