Muslim Brotherhood – Where’s the Beef? Find the Prime Right Here.

The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) was formed in 1928 with a mission to institute Shariah Law and bring the Islamic caliphate to life across the globe –  a stated goal to “destroy the Western civilization from within.” The goal has never changed. While we watch the power grabs in Egypt, the people of the U.S. must realize that we are the center of the target of a stealth power-take-over by the Brotherhood which sees itself as ‘the’ way of Islam, ‘the’ way for you and me. Shariah Law is not peaceful. Shariah Law is not secular. When the Brotherhood says they have rejected violence, their own creed reveals the enormity of that lie, and a document found in 2001, further demonstrates how the MB plans to continue being ‘the’ way to Islam for you and me. There is already significant evidence that the MB are already installed quite comfortably in some of our highest levels of Government. Below, I’ve skimmed over the early founding of al-Banna and Saudi influences and/or Muslim Brotherhood networks in Saudi Arabia and focus on Egypt and Palestine and the U.S., with the goals of the Brotherhood laid-out first, then the world players who have led the organization to astonishing growth. SKIP TO The ‘Muslim Brotherhood World Leaders’ below if time as short, but come back to understand the roots of the MB when you have time. As you read, remember our Director of National Intelligence James Clapper declared the Muslim Brotherhood to be a “secular” organization.

“For the Brotherhood democracy is nothing but a dance with the devil,” the paper wrote. “It is the means to come to power. Afterwards they will whip democracy and behead it with the sword.” ~ Rosa al Yousef, Cairo July 2007

Muslim Brotherhood Creed from beginning to present day:

“Allah is our objective, the prophet is our leader, the Koran is our law, Jihad is our way, dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

"Ikhwan" means Arab Brothers or Brothers

“Ikhwan” means Arab Brothers or Brothers

Gatestone Institute – Muslim Brotherhood in U.S. Government – (the most comprehensive article I’ve found, well-documented – should be bookmarked):

Since its inception in 1928, the Muslim Brotherhood consistently has championed the cause of global jihad to “mobilize the entire Umma into one body to defend the right cause with all its strength…to jihad, to warfare…”[6]Until early 2011, its original bylaws could be found on the Brotherhood’s English language website, Ikhwanweb, established in 2005 by senior Brotherhood official Khairat al-Shater. Since then, they have been preserved by Steven Emerson at The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT)[7]. Article (2) makes clear that the Brotherhood conceives of itself as “an international Muslim Body, which seeks to establish Allah’s law in the land by achieving the spiritual goals of Islam and the true religion…establishing the Islamic State” and “…building a new basis of human civilization as is ensured by the overall teachings of Islam.”[8] …

In case that sounds relatively benign, Article (3) E gets more to the point: “The Islamic nation must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and the enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing an Islamic state.”[9] This is exactly what the Brotherhood did in Egypt in the violent years before and after the 1949 death of al-Banna, until it was forcibly suppressed, only to rise again in 2011-2012 when circumstances permitted.

During the terrorism-financing trials of the Holy Land Foundation (with still today 300 “unindicted co-conspirators, including CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) a document was submitted into evidence, written by a Muslim Brotherhood member and titled “An Explanatory Memorandum on the general Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.” The author was Mohamed Akram. The memo was found in the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia.

● Written sometime in 1987 but not formally published until May 22, 1991, Akram’s 18-page document listed the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded “organizations of our friends” that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Muslim nation. These “friends” were identified by Akram and the Brotherhood as groups that could help convince Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.” Source: Discover the Networks.

● Much was uncovered during the investigation associated with the prosecution, including the extent to which the Muslim Brotherhood had infiltrated America and controlled all of the major Muslim organizations in America, to include the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Several such organizations and individuals were named as unindicted co-conspirators in the trial and it was the reported intention of the Dallas US attorney’s office to prosecute at least some of those co-conspirators before Barack Obama ascended to the presidency and Eric Holder became attorney general and shut the whole operation down.

The Muslim Brotherhood ‘Project” found by Swiss authorities in the home of Yousef Nada, the Muslim Brotherhood director of the Al-Taqwa bank (which funded al-Qaeda) – snippets from the ‘Project’ document, courtesy of Gatestone – read it all here:

● Networking and coordinating actions between likeminded Islamist organizations

● Avoiding open alliances with known terrorist organizations and individuals to maintain the appearance of “moderation

● Infiltrating and taking over existing Muslim organizations to realign them towards the Muslim Brotherhood’s collective goals

● Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions, as long as it doesn’t conflict with sharià law

● Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations dedicated to Islamist ideals so that contact with the movement for Muslims in the West is constant

● Involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratically-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations and labor unions

● Instituting alliances with Western “progressive” organizations that share similar goals

● Inflaming violence and keep Muslims living in the West “in a jihad frame of mind”

● Instigating a constant campaign to incite hatred by Muslims against Jews and rejecting any discussions of conciliation or coexistence with them

Quick Facts:

● The Muslim Brotherhood is the most Influential Islamic movement in the United States and in the World

● There are Muslim Brotherhood affiliates and branches in more than 100 countries worldwide

● The Muslim Brotherhood connected to underground links to the Nazis starting in the 1930s and supported terrorism orchestrated by Haj Amin al-Husseini (the uncle of Yasser Arafat)

The Muslim Brotherhood World Leaders:

Hassan al-Banna: Founder Hassan al-Banna, Ismailiya Suez Canal Zone, 1928.

“The Islamic nation must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and the enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing an Islamic state.”

Yasser Arafat: Arafat fought with the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1940s, but it’s unclear whether he was a member at this point.

Haj Amin al-Husseini (L) with Adolph Hitler. Yasser Arafat was al-Husseini's Nephew

Haj Amin al-Husseini (L) with Adolph Hitler. Yasser Arafat was al-Husseini’s Nephew

Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini: During World War II, the Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini, fled to Cairo for asylum. He was an admirer of Adolph Hitler and the Nazi movement. His Cairo-born nephew was Rahman Abdul Rauf al-Qudwa ,known today as Yasser Arafat, the leader of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO)

After World War II  Haj Amin al-Husseini was appointed the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Jerusalem. When Britain was given the task of executing the Mandate for Palestine to form the Israeli Nation, the Mufti of Jerusalem, along with Saudi King Abdullah I, were instrumental in convincing the Brits to hand over large portions of land to just about everyone but Israel. The original mandate for Israel began with designated 124,466 sq. kilometers for the Jewish Homeland, and was finalized with only 14,245 sq. kilometers. Thus the reason for today’s problems for Israel. No security – Arabs everywhere, yet the 14,000 sq kilometers was not, and still is not, acceptable to the Arabs in the area.

Amin Al-Husseini is main organizer of riots. [xiii]   He organizes suicide squads against the local authorities.  Applies Nazi methodology of “systematic extermination” of any Arab suspected of less than total loyalty to Pan-Islamic vision of Muslim Brotherhood.

Any “non-Islamic” element is a threat to his Pan-Islamic vision.

Many Muslim and Christian Palestinian intellectual leaders and clerics assassinated for protesting Husseini’s Islamic terror.

1936-1938. Murdered by Husseini’s men:

 * Sheikh Daoud Ansari ( Imam of Al Aqsa Mosque),  Sheikh Ali Nur el Khattib (Al Aqsa Mosque), Sheikh Nusbi Abdal Rahim (Council of Muslim Religious Court), Sheikh Abdul el Badoui (Acre, Palestine), Sheikh El Namouri (Hebron), Nasr El Din Nassr  (Mayor of Hebron).  Between Feb. 1937 and Nov 1938, Eleven (11) Mukhtars (community leaders) and their entire families slain by Amin al Husseini’s men.

The Palestine riots between 1936-1938 were financially sponsored by NaziGermany [xiv]

Amin Al-Husseini arrives in Rome, where he meets fascist leader Mussolini. The fascist dictator and invador of Ethiopia praises Husseini and his use of the Kur’an to propagate fascism. From Rome, Husseini declares Fatwa-Jihad[xv] against Britain. He creates the notion of Pan-Islamism, borrowed from Nazi Pan-Aryanism, with slogans of Muslim unity to further his cause.

Amin Al Husseini goes to Baghdad and participates in Pro-Nazi Coup in Iraq

Amin Al-Husseini [xvii] in Berlin sits with Adolf Hitler and is active in the decision to exterminate all Jews through the infamous Final Solution.

Hitler was content with deporting the Jews out of Germany.  Husseini perceived this as a threat to his stronghold in Palestine and pushed successfully for the extermination of the European Jews.     Final Solution will claim six million Jewish lives, including one million children…

March 1, 1944. Amin Al-Husseini makes speech from Berlin addressing Muslim SS Nazi troops: “Kill Jews wherever you find them. This pleases God, History and Religion.  This saves your honor. God is with you.” [xxi] Source: TellTheChildrenTheTruth

The Muslim Brotherhood is the Mother of Hamas:

As the sudden fall of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood reverberates through the Middle East, perhaps nowhere are events being watched more anxiously than in Gaza Strip, the seaside enclave controlled by the Islamist group’s Palestinian spinoff, Hamas…

Seeing its Egyptian mentor swept from power after only one year has unnerved many Hamas leaders, despite the group’s tight political and security control over Gaza.

it’s an abrupt turn of events for Hamas. When Morsi ascended to power a year ago, Hamas leaders were almost giddy, confidently predicting that the Brotherhood’s rise would give them new leverage in confrontations with Israel and Fatah, which is based in the West Bank. They expected that closer ties with a Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Egypt would throw open the Rafah border crossing, end Gaza’s international isolation and keep Israel’s military at bay.

Those hopes never fully materialized, even though relations between Hamas and Egypt improved vastly compared to those seen under former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who viewed Hamas as an enemy. Source: LA Times

● Egyptian President Gamel Abdel Nasser: Nasser was not officially a member of the Brotherhood, but an MB supporter in the 1940s. When a MB member made an assassination attempt on Nasser in 1954, the organization was banned, but clearly still operated in secret in Egypt.

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak: Mubarak officially banned the Muslim Brotherhood from the country in the 1990s. As with Nasser’s ban, the movement grew and flourished underground, running for political office under the guise of other parties.

● Said Ramadan: July 1953 – Said Ramadan was the son-in-law of founder Hassan al-Banna. The Eisenhower administration was involved in what we might call an “outreach” today. Said Ramadan was at the Eisenhower White House. Said Ramadan made his way into the Eisenhower administration in some manner, along with the Princeton Islam Seminar Delegation in July 1953.

Ramadan with the connivance of  Haj Amin Al Husseini spread the political Islamic doctrine of the MB via the World Muslim League. The League was co-founded by the Grand Mufti, al Husseini, and Ramadan. The core of the MB doctrine was the restoration of the Caliphate which had ended with establishment of modern Turkey in 1924. The Caliph would enforce strict Islamic Law in the ummah – the community of believers. Ramadan married one of daughters of Egyptian MB founder Hassan al-Banna, who was assassinated in 1949 by Egyptian authorities under King Farouk. Gamal al-Banna, brother of the MB founder, thought Ramadan could “have been the foreign Minister of the MB. He was an eloquent orator and spoke English. He had many contacts overseas.” Ramadan and the Grand Mufti held a meeting in Karachi during the World Muslim Congress in 1951. Ramadan was then elected as a secretary of the Congress. Ramadan was also with the Grand Mufti in the Jerusalem-based Islamic General Congress. Among his colleagues in the MB was Sayyid Qutb, the MB’s principal modern theorist and author of the tract Milestones. Qutb propounded the view that those who disagreed with these Islamic principals were apostates and therefore subject to a death. Source: New English Review

Yusuf al-Qaradawi

Yusuf al-Qaradawi

Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi: Qaradawi is an Egyptian theologian, host of IslamOnline with a huge following and an author of more than 100 books, including The Muslim Brotherhood: 70 Years in Mission and Education. He is considered the GodFather of the Muslim Brotherhood. He left Egypt in 1961 after King Farouq sentenced him to prison and eventually released him, and Nasser did the same – three times. He returned to Egypt without fanfare a few times always returning to Qatar until Egypt’s 2011 Arab Spring where he led Friday prayers for the first time in decades. Al-Qaradawi is banned from entering the U.S. and the U.K.

Al-Qaradawi vigorously supported Mohamed Morsi’s (Mursi) presidency as late as June 2013 and returned to Cairo to attend demonstrations for the ousted former president. Al-Qaradawi didn’t just support Morsi, he issued a fatwa:

A leading Qatar-based cleric declared in a religious edict, or fatwa, on Saturday that Egyptians should support ousted President Mohamed Morsy of the Muslim Brotherhood and the military should withdraw from the political scene.

Egyptian-born Youssef al-Qaradawi, one of the most prominent Sunni clerics in the Middle East, said in the fatwa posted on his website that the military’s intervention to depose Morsy on Wednesday was against democracy and the constitution.

“Doctor al-Qaradawi issued a fatwa on the necessity to support the elected Egyptian president Mohamed Morsy, and to retain the constitution… and calling on al-Sisi and those with him to withdraw to preserve legitimacy and democracy,” the posting said.

He said many scholars from Cairo’s al-Azhar Islamic university, Egypt’s pre-eminent Muslim institution, agreed with him. Source: Egypt Independent

Today, there are reports that Qatar expelled al-Qaradawi this month, July 2013, but the Brotherhood’s “spiritual leader” says these rumors are not true. Khalid Meshaal, a Hamas leader was also allegedly expelled. Read the story at JoshuaPundit

Hamas: In 1987, Hamas became the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood under the leadership of Yasser Arafat.

This encounter with the Muslim Brotherhood, who controlled upwards of one fifth of the seats in Egypt’s Parliament as so-called independents, was not sanctioned by Bush Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice.

Tariq Ramadan

Tariq Ramadan

● Tariq Ramadan: Bush administration bans him, Obama administration throws down the welcome mat. April 2010 Tariq Ramadan is the son of Said Ramadan (see above) and the grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna. In 2004, Tariq Ramadan received a tenured position of Henry R. Luce Professor of Religion, Conflict and Peacebuilding at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. Two months later the Bush State Department revoked the visa on grounds of terrorist ties under the “ideological exclusion provision” of the Patriot Act. The university attempted to help Ramadan regain his visa with no success. Ramadan resigned the position in December 2004.

In 2005 Ramadan filed an application for a B Visa which would allow him to be booked as speaker in the U.S. The Government didn’t respond so the ACLU and the New York Civil Liberties Union filed suit on behalf of three organizations wanting some kind of contact with Ramadan. The three were the American Academy of Religion, the American Association of University Professors and the PEN America Center.

In September 2006, the Government officially denied the application. The State Department issued a statement saying the denial was based on Ramadan “providing material support to a terrorist organization,” which referred to donations to two charities, The Committee for Charity and Support for Palestinians. Both were designated as terrorist funding organizations by the U.S. Treasury. The decision was more complicated (First Amendment and National Security) than what I have provided here. Read more at the New York Times.

In 2007 the ACLU took the matter back to court. In July 2009 (six months after Obama’s swearing-in) a U.S. Federal Appeals Court reversed the ruling.

In January 2010 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lifted the ban on Tariq Ramadan’s presence on American soil. By 2010, America was no longer under the threat of “terrorism.” Tariq Ramadan came to the U.S. Most of the above concerning Tariq Ramadan comes from Wikipedia.

Tariq Ramadan was accused of bringing Euro-Islam to the U.S., which included Euro-Leftism. Look how der Spiegel Online portrayed him:

…[his] appearance alone is enough to add a touch of brilliance to this gloomy conference room. Smiling here and nodding there, the “esteemed guest” strides up to the podium with the confidence of an entertainer who has grown accustomed to success. Tariq Ramadan knows how to win people over.

Many of the veteran social workers have an almost enraptured expression on their faces as they look up at the tall, thin man. With his striking features and dark well-trimmed beard, his sand-colored suit with its elegant casualness, the unbuttoned collar of his bright yellow shirt and his slightly dark complexion, Ramadan resembles a Latino singer….

In effect, Ramadan is something of a modern-day itinerant preacher. His mission is to boost the self-confidence of Europe’s Muslims and to explain his vision of a “European Islam” to Europe’s Christian elite. The new brand of faith which, according to Ramadan, “is currently taking shape among European Muslims with Islamic-European culture” aims to reconcile Western values with the teachings of Islam. This “Euro-Islam” has allowed Ramadan to win friends among immigrant children and proponents of interreligious dialogue — and make enemies among right-wing nationalists and hardline Islamists.

Discover the Networks has another view:

But to Arabic-speaking audiences, he vents his deep-seated hatred of the West and his endorsement of Wahhabism, the most extreme form of Islam. Moreover, Ramadan has numerous connections to fundamentalist Islamic militants and is suspected by U.S. intelligence agencies of maintaining ties with the terrorist group al Qaeda.

The bottom line: Tariq Ramada, currently a Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies in the Faculty of Oriental Studies at Oxford University, is the grandson of Hassan al-Banna who advocated for violence and all methods that would spread Islam across the globe, and he is the son of Said Ramadan (the son-in-law of al-Banna) who “led the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the 1950s and then was exiled from Egypt to Switzerland where Tariq was born in September 1962.”

Atlas Shrugs provides a transcript of Tariq Ramadan speaking in Dallas at a fundraiser for the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), asking young Muslims to “colonize” the U.S.

It should be us, with our understanding of Islam, our principles, colonizing positively the United States of America.

We don’t want the West to be destructed. What we want is the West to be reformed.

The Muslim Brotherhood during the Presidency of Mohamed Morsi (Mursi): With the downfall of Hosni Mubarak and the ascendency of Morsi,  a majority of Egypt’s Parlimentary seats went to the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party.

● CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations): In 2007 during the Holy Land trials, FBI Agent Lara Burns testified that CAIR is listed among affiliated members of the Muslim Brotherhood and specifically the Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee.

Burns also said that both Omar Ahmed and Nihad Awad, CAIR co-founders who today serve as CAIR’s chairman emeritus and executive director, respectively, were also listed as individual members the Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee in America.

Awad and Ahmed are further connected to the Palestine Committee based on their positions as president and public relations director of the IAP, a Hamas front group that was responsible for the dissemination of propaganda, and has since been closed down as a result of a multi-million dollar civil judgment in a trial involving the murder of an American teenager by HAMAS terrorists.

CAIR, which touts itself as America’s premier Muslim civil rights organization, was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial. Burns’ testimony so far has placed both Ahmed and Awad at a 1993 Philadelphia meeting where the HAMAS members and supporters discussed a strategy to kill the Oslo Peace Accords, which threatened to marginalize HAMAS. The group also discussed ways to improve HAMAS fundraising in America. Source: Investigative Project

When you think of the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S., you are also thinking of CAIR, whether you realize it or not.

Rashad Hussein

Rashad Hussein

● Rashad Hussein: 2009 Appointed to the White House Counsel’s Office and has advised the Administration on policy issues related to the Muslim world. Currently the U.S. Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) consisting of 52 Islamic Nations – the second largest inter-governmental body in the United Nations. American-born in Wyoming, raised in Plano, Texas. Hussein is a Muslim of Indian origin. Has served in the White House Counsel’s Office .

The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Reporttook a look at Hussain’s official biography and found several concerning affiliations. The first is that in October 2000, Hussain spoke at a conference sponsored by the Association of Muslim Social Scientists, which was listed in an internal Muslim Brotherhood document as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends,” and the Prince Alwaleed Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding of Georgetown University, which receives Saudi funding and is directed by prominent Muslim Brotherhood advocate, John Esposito.

In September 2004, Hussain played a role in the Muslim Students Association’s annual conference, which was founded by Muslim Brotherhood in 1963 and is also listed as one the group’s fronts in its own documents.

Since then, many of its nearly 600 college chapters have engaged inextremism and the group closely collaborates with the other Brotherhood fronts. For example, MSA was part of an umbrella organization called the American Muslim Taskforce that led a campaign against the FBI’s use of informants in mosques and accused the agency of “anti-Muslim activity.” Several Brotherhood affiliates are in this coalition including the Muslim-American Society, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

At this conference, Hussain spoke alongside the daughter of Professor Sami Al-Arian, who was convicted of being a key leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group and later admitted to being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hussain also defended Al-Arian and described his prosecution as being a “politically-motivated persecution.” The network of Brotherhood-affiliated groups have consistently been on his side throughout the entire ordeal and celebrated his release.

Interestingly, the story in The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs that quoted Hussain’s defense of Al-Arian has been altered since its original publication. CNSNews.comreports that the quote was removed “sometime after October 2007” and that the reporter who wrote the article “expressed surprise but said she no longer worked at WRMEA and could not explain the edit.”

Last May [2010], Hussain spoke at a conference sponsored by several Brotherhood affiliates, including the Muslim Public Affairs Council, an organization whose extremism has been catalogued in a series by The Investigative Project on Terrorism, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The latter was listed by the federal government in 2007 as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the terrorism financing trial of The Holy Land Foundation, another Muslim Brotherhood front that was found to be financing Hamas. Its founders are former officials at the Islamic Association of Palestine, a Brotherhood front shut down for supporting Hamas and are said by the FBI to be members of the Brotherhood’s “Palestine Committee” in the United States.

Arif Alikhan

● Arif Alikahn – 2009 A devout Sunni Muslim, born in Canada to Indian/Pakistani parents. Appointed by Janet Napolitano to Assistant Secretary for Policy Development at DHS.

Arif Alikahn – 2010 Moved to the Department of Defense National Defense University (NDU), chartered by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He is currently a professor of Homeland Security and Counterterroism.

An opponent of President George W. Bush’s prosecution of the war on Islamic terror, Alikhan was responsible for derailing the LAPD‘s efforts to monitor activities within the city’s Muslim community, where numerous radical mosques and madrassas were known to exist, and where some of the 9/11 hijackers had received support from local residents…

In early June 2009, Alikhan spoke at a banquet/fundraiser for the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California (ISCSC). A noteworthy fellow speaker was Agha Saeed, who had previously defendedPalestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami Al-Arian during the latter’s prosecution on terrorism charges. At the ISCSC event, Saeed lamented the “Islamophobia” allegedly pervading post-9/11 America, and demanded that the Justice Department stop monitoring U.S. mosques for evidence of extremism. Source: Discover the Networks

Mohamed Magid

Mohamed Magid

● Mohamed Magid (Imam): 2011 – Native of Sudan and son of the Grand Mufti of Sudan. He is the imam of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), a mosque located in Sterling, Virginia which is believed to be a Muslim Brotherhood front organization. He is the current president of the Islamic Society of North America, the largest Muslim Brotherhood organization in the U.S., which was founded to be a financial support entity for Hamas. Immigrated to the U.S. in 1987. Obama appointed Magid to serve on the Department of Homeland Security’s Countering Violent Extremism Working Group. He is one of the “trainers” of the FBI and other federal agencies. Magid said he and his “fellow Muslim leaders did “not use these monthly meetings to report upon the actvities of our community members.”

In his new DHS role, Magid, claiming that media references to jihad as “holy war” constituted a “misuse” of the term, asked Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez to: arrange for Magid to meet regularly with top Justice Department officials; allow Magid to reeducate FBI agents vis a vis Islam and its practitioners; and carefully avoid criticism of Islam, which Magid characterized as “religious bigotry and hate.” Magid and other Muslim lobbyists also persuaded government officials to ban the practice, at airports, of conducting the extra security checks on passengers traveling from a number of Islamic countries — checks that had been instituted after a Nigerian Muslim tried to blow up a passenger plane on Christmas Day 2009.

In response to pressure from Magid and his fellow lobbyists, DHS carefully erased from its “Countering Violent Extremism” curriculum any suggestion that Muslim terrorism drew its inspiration from the laws and doctrines of Islam. In 2012, the FBI purged some 700 documents and 300 presentations from its training materials and lesson plans.

On March 8, 2013, Magid and ten religious leaders met with President Obama for a 90-minute conversation about immigration reform. Also present at the meeting was senior White House adviserValerie Jarrett. Three days later, Magid took part in a meeting with Obama where the President listened to “recommendations” designed to help him prepare for his upcoming diplomacy trip to the Middle East.

In addition to his DHS work, Magid has also served with the National Security Council and has been a member of the FBI’s Muslim, Sikh, and Arab Advisory Board.Source: Discover the Networks

Salam al-Marayati

Salam al-Marayati

● Salam al-Marayati: 2012 – A native of Iraq, is Founder and Executive Director of Muslim Public Affairs Council, al-Marayati was appointed by Obama to be a part of a U.S. delegation to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe forum in Poland.

A founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council and its current executive director, Salam al-Marayati’s family moved to the United States from Iraq when he was a young boy.[1] He gained national attention in 1999, when then-House Democratic Leader Richard Gephardt nominated him to serve on the National Commission on Terrorism. Gephardt later withdrew the nomination after a public backlash highlighted al-Marayati’s defense of terrorist acts and the groups who carry them out.[2]

Al-Marayati’s record on defending terrorist groups and extremists is substantial. During a 2002 speech at the State Department, Salam al-Marayati, said, “Rashid Ghannouchi is an example of those who promote this need for dialogue between civilizations, not confrontation.”[3]Ghannoushi was the head of Tunisia’s banned Muslim Brotherhood-aligned Al-Nahda Party and was convicted by a Tunisian court of responsibility for a bomb blast that blew the foot off a British tourist.[4]

In a 1999 PBS interview, he called Hizballah attacks “legitimate resistance,”[5] but later added “when a Muslim commits an act of terrorism, we stand very loudly and clearly against that Muslim that committed that act of violence.”

Yet in 1996, he issued no condemnation for a man who crashed his car into a crowded Jerusalem bus stop, shouting Allahu Akbar. One person was killed and 23 others injured in the incident. The attacker was shot dead at the scene, something al-Marayati condemned as a “provocative act” and he called for the shooter’s extradition to the United States to stand trial.

In a 1997 speech, he said American Hero Patrick Henry would best define an American terrorist and what jihad means to Muslims:

“[T]he person who we think in America would epitomize jihad would be Patrick Henry, who said, ‘Give me liberty or give me death.’ That is a way of looking at the term jihad from an American perspective.”…

On the afternoon of September 11, 2001, Al-Marayati used a Los Angeles talk radio program as a forum in which to accuse the Israelis of responsibility for that morning’s attacks on New York and Washington. Al-Marayati has also called for the U.S. government to unfreeze the assets of two Islamic charities, the Global Relief Foundation and theHoly Land Foundation, that were shut down by the government because of funding they had given to terrorist organizations.

Al-Marayati refuses to call Hezbollah a terrorist group. “I don’t think any group should be judged 100% this or that,” he says. “I think every group is going to have . . . its claim of liberation and resistance.” He has similarly justified Hamas‘ existence as a political entity that promotes social programs and “educational operations.” “Yesterday’s terrorists in the Middle East are today’s leaders,” he says. “The PLO is the number one example of this . . . The PLO 35 years ago was considered a terrorist organization, nobody should deal with them . . . But they became the people in authority, in Palestine, today. So Hamas today, the way it’s being viewed, is exactly how the PLO was viewed 30 years ago. And in fact, even Hamas in terms of its social and educational operations is doing exactly what the PLO was doing 35 years ago, as well as its quote unquote military operations.” Source: Discover the Networks

Dalia Mogahed

● Dalia Mogahed: 2009 – Appointed by Obama to serve on the Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Has stated publicly that Sharia Law is seen by most Muslim women as a form of “gender justice.” Born in Cairo, Egypt, came to the U.S. at age five (5). She is a naturalized citizen.

In a 2007 speech in Aspen, Colorado, Mogahed said that terrorists try “to exploit broadly felt legitimate grievances” in order to gain new recruits. According to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, “She also appeared to suggest that the Muslim Brotherhood might be a peaceful alternative to jihadists.”

In a 2007 interview on Link Television, Mogahed was asked to comment on the harsh punishments (like stonings, canings, and dismemberment) associated with Sharia Law. She replied that Muslims generally tend to view Sharia as a framework for achieving “a more just society,” “protection of human rights,” and “rule of law.”

Mogahed has consistently defended Islamist organizations like theCouncil on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), both of which have ties to the Muslim BrotherhoodSource: Discover the Networks

● Congressman Keith Ellison (D-Minn): Keith Ellison was the first Muslim elected to Congress has appeared at CAIR fundraisers, was most unhappy that the U.S. House of Representatives called for CAIR investigations, called American’s fears of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt a “scarecrow.” The Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Muslim American Society of Minnesota paid for Ellison to travel to Mecca for the Hajj – a two-week trip costing in excess of $13,000.

Congressman Andre Carson (D-IN): Carson is the second Muslim elected to Congress. He has stated publicly that America needs to look to the Muslim method of educating children:

American will never tap into educational innovation and enguinuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrasses, in our schools where innovation is encouraged, WHERE THE FOUNDATION IS THE KORAN, and that model that we are pushing in our schools meets the multiple needs of students.

Most of us are visual learners. Some of us are auditory learners, we learn by hearing. Many of us are kinesthetic learners. We learn by doing, touching and feeling.

I have found, as my wife is a principal, we have a 5-year old daughter, Saleema, that we need an educational model that is current, that meets the need of our students. America must understand that she needs Muslims. ~ Andre Carson

The Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR are working diligently in our our schools. The subject is too big to cover here. Check out the Stop The Madrassa: A Community Coalition website for detail.

The following timeline is from an Investor’s Business Daily article dated July 19, 2012 (all emphasis is mine):

● 2009: The Brotherhood’s spiritual leader — Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi — writes an open letter to Obama arguing terrorism is a direct response to U.S. foreign policy.

2009: Obama travels to Cairo to deliver apologetic speech to Muslims, and infuriates the Mubarak regime by inviting banned Brotherhood leaders to attend. Obama deliberately snubs Mubarak, who was neither present nor mentioned. He also snubs Israel during the Mideast trip.

Below are my updates to the IBD timeline quoted above:

Summer 2012: Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) confronts Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano about her appointment of Mohamed Elibiary to her Homeland Security Advisory Council. With the job comes a top secret security clearance. Elibiary is a Texas-based Islamic cleric. Gohmert alleges that Elibiary used his security clearance to download classified information  about Texas Governor Rick Perry during the 2012 election period and that Elibiary “shopped” the information to the media. Elibiary supposedly downloaded the information to his personal computer. Napolitano’s only answer is that the information was not classified (apparently she can decided for the state of Texas what information is classified and what is not) and refused to address the fact that his security clearance was utilized for his own personal computer.

Elibiary formed the Freedom and Justice Foundation (the Muslim Brotherhood political wing in Egypt is the Freedom and Justice Party) and attempted to receive a 501(3)(3) status for it, which was denied.

● 2011 after Morsi is elected President: Rashad Bayoumi, Deputy to Saad Katatni who led the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party:

…no matter what the people want, the “Brotherhood” will never “sit down” with Israel. “We will not deal with Israelis by any means,” he  [Bayoumi] said. Source.

Abdullah bin Bayyah

Abdullah bin Bayyah

● June 2013: The White House hosts Sheikh Abdullah bin Bayyah seeking his advice on Syria. Bayyah is the vice-president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), serving under founder Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who is banned from entering the U.S. and the U.K. He can get into the White House, you and/or your child’s classroom cannot.

● July 2013: Kevin McCullough writing at Townhall breaks a document from the Libyan Government, and specifically from the office of Libyan Director of National Security detailing six (6) arrests of Egyptians in the murders of four (4) Americans in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 – US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, IT officer Sean Smith and two former Navy SEALs who came to their aid: Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. The Muslim Brotherhood and Mohamed Morsi (Mursi) are named.

Six confessions from those arrested at the scene–all of them Egyptian–and all connected to the U.S. terror watch listed group Ansar al-Sharia.

Concerning the most important claim of the Libyan memo, Raymond Ibrahim, (an American research librarian, translator, and author, whose focus is Arabic history, language, and current events) indicates that “during interrogations, these Egyptian jihadi cell members ‘confessed to very serious and important information concerning the financial sources of the group and the planners of the event and the storming and burning of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi…. And among the more prominent figures whose names were mentioned by cell members during confessions: Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi…'”…

If in fact Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was even remotely involved, tacitly aware, or even seen giving nodding approval, why on earth did President Obama turn around and deliver 16 fighter jets and 200 tanks to the Egyptian regime roughly three months later?
Why was Morsi invited to the White House in September 2012? Then invited for December 5, 2012? Then February 2013, then March? Why does his visit get continually postponed as though the White House seems to know something about him and his visit that they are not comfortable with?
Why was the President so thoroughly unreachable when the attack took place, and for a period of six to eight hours, incapable of accounting for where he was as the worst of it played out?
Why did Hillary Clinton give her support to the Brotherhood’s pet project at the United Nations–to declare blasphemy of Islam a global crime?
Why did the Obama White House and the National Security Council meet with and host a Muslim Brotherhood radical on June 13, 2013? (Who is the personal assistant to a terrorist so extreme his presence is not even allowed in the U.S.?) And only confess to it when it finally is reported by the press?
And why does the current administration have as many as a half dozen mid to upper level appointees that have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood–either directly or through Brotherhood member organizations?
As of today, I’ve seen no major news sources talking about Morsi and the Brotherhood possibly involved in the deaths in Benghazi – certainly not about the document referenced or the translation by an American. Wouldn’t it be a huge blow to the U.S. if Mohamed Morsi (Mursi) played a part in Benghazi September 11, 2012? Yes it would be huge…and easily verifiable if the media decides to do so.
● A side-note to the story of Ambassador Chris Stevens is the possibility that the plan for Benghazi was a kidnapping-gone-wrong. The idea was to exchange Ambassador Stevens for the Blind Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, now a prisoner of the U.S., in the U.S., for orchestrating the first World Trade Center Bombings in 1993. Some suggestions that security in Benghazi on that fateful night was purposefully lessened. Afterall, it was September 11th, and afterall, the State Department was paying for the extra security unit that was recalled by Hillary Clinton.
July 2013: Mohammed ElBaradei, former U.N. Chairman of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) praises Mohamed Morsi and defended the Muslim Brotherhood during the Arab Spring. Fox News’ Homeland Security Correspondent Catherine Herridge says on-air, after Morsi is deposed, that ElBaradei may be a possible presidential candidate and that ElBaradei is “respected” in the U.S. ElBaradei as IAEA Chief looked the other way for years and allowed Iran to reach the nuclear zenith they are approaching today. Rumors are that ElBaradei may be appointed Egypt’s Vice President or a “Deputy” to the new President. During the past week’s conflicts in Egypt, Elibiary showed clear preference for the Muslim Brotherhood through a series of Tweets – watch Rep. Gohmert get fired-up in his exchange with Napolitano here. Read more about Elibiary at Discover the Networks.

● A Canadian Muslim’s View of the Obama Administration: Tarek Fatah, a Muslim Liberal Democrat Marxist, who worked and campaigned for Barack Obama, made the following remarks at Ideacity in Canada with an audience of thousands:

…“the religion of Islam is being used as a tool by a fascist force.”

“Instead of bringing victory over the fascist forces of the Muslim Brotherhood, we now recognize that their infiltration is right up to the American White House, but we can’t say that.”

“Today we are fighting another idea of Islamo-fascism that has shut our mouths and we can’t speak because we’re too scared that someone may turn around and call us a racist. And mind you, everyday as I speak, a few dozen Muslims would have been killed by now by these Jihadi’s.”…

“Please understand that there is a distinction between Islam as a faith which, along with every other religion, has its own problems, and “Islamism,” which is an ideology, a political ideology, that says that Western Civilization has to be destroyed.”

“The books that are distributed at Eaton Centre and the Dundas Square clearly state by the founders of the Muslim Brotherhood that all Western countries have to be destroyed.” Read more about Tarek Fatah (very interesting) at Noisy Room
