Chapters of the Muslim Students Association (MSA) which is closely connected to the Muslim Brotherhood emerge in more and more public schools in the USA. Websites of several public schools in Minnesota as well as online documents name the affected high schools.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s document “Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” lists the MSA as affiliated group. The Memorandum describes a strategy to destroy America from within. In the mission statement it calls for “civilization jihad” by co-opting the US-leadership into believing a new understanding about Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood.
An example of a very active group is the Muslim Students Association at Apple Valley High School. It’s Facebook page categorized the group not as club but as “cause” and according to the school principal, it was asked to remove the social media page because it is no longer an active student-led group at the school. Notwithstanding, the page was still active and in 2015, it advertised the event “Best of Identities” at which Dr. Abdul Mawgoud Dardery, an Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood member who supports terrorist organization such as Hamas, was initially invited as a speaker but did not attend.
John Guandolo, a former FBI-agent, published a book with the indicative title “Raising A Jihadi Generation: Understanding the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in America”. In an interview with Alpha News he explained that the MSA was the first national Islamic organization that was established by the Muslim Brotherhood. Its focus was on the “dawah”, the invitation to Islam, and on the recruiting of Jihadi. Meanwhile MSAs are active at all major universities, colleges as well as high schools, middle and even elementary schools. According to the expert, all MSAs should be closed because they are a threat to the community. As part of the Muslim Brotherhood network they support its overall goal. The Muslim Brotherhood itself openly advocates the creation of a world-wide Islamic Empire and already has more than 2,000 branches in 70 countries. Step by step it thus aims at the infiltration of leading organizations in those states.
Hence, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act which will eventually become law, emphasized that the Muslim Brotherhood poses a global threat and that the USA should designate the movement as terrorist organization.
An analysis shows that during only one month incredible acts of violence and crime came to the fore that were committed by immigrants, among them Islamists as well as persons who regard themselves as “true believers”. When the British government invited even more refugees from Muslim countries to the UK it did not put enough attention to cultural differences respectively the fact that also extremists and criminals are among the asylum seekers. Here is a short overview of occurrences of August 2016:
- New statistics disclosed that almost 900 Syrians were arrested in 2015 for crimes including child abuse and rape. Male refugees shall receive training on treatment of women in order to prevent sexual harassment and genital mutilation.
- Several cases of “honor killing” induced a public debate about the necessity to change the term to “cultural murder”. “Honor killing” implies that the victim brought shame on a family and thereby normalizes murder. However, there should be no distinction or excuse for brutal murder on overwhelmingly female victims.
- A man of Somali descent and proponent of violent jihad stabbed to death an American woman in London.
- A swimming pool in Luton announced gender-segregated sessions which would provide men access to the larger pool and women only to a smaller one. This discrimination is justified by “cultural reasons”.
- Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood members might get asylum in Great Britain due to their risk of persecution.
- A British national was sentenced for posting offensive anti-Muslim comments on the internet that could stir up racial hatred. Police announced an “Online Hate Crime Hub” to investigate such offensive comments. Civil liberties groups warn of limitations to the freedom of expression.
- The leader of the UK Independence Party called for a ban on wearing a veil in public places, requested the closure of Islamic faith schools and demanded a comprehensive ban on Sharia courts.
- A Sunni Muslim was sentenced to prison for the barbaric murder of a man who belonged to the Ahmadi branch of Islam motivated by hatred of his religious views. Two supporters of the Islamic States were accused of murdering an imam because they regarded his practice as “black magic”.
- A British schoolgirl who went to Syria to join the Islamic State was killed in an airstrike. The BBC heralded that the number of minors arrested under the Terrorism Act more than tripled over two years.
- According to a new report Muslim women are the most economically disadvantaged group in society.
- Two known British Islamist were convicted of inviting support for the Islamic State. Pakistani Islamist made a tour across the country to speak at different mosques which was tolerated by British authorities.
- The Ministry of Justice needs to adopt measures to combat Islamic extremism in prisons because of a growing number of “self-styled emirs” who enhance the radicalization of fellow Muslims.
- A man who had converted to Islam was convicted of beating a teenager because he was hugging a girl. A multi-faith organization issued a security warning for British churches after a Catholic priest in France was murdered by jihadists.
- The news came out that Pakistani sex gangs exploited hundreds of children in Telford.
Huma Abedin is Hillary Clinton’s top aide which in fact puts her in a very influential position. In the course of the Clinton presidential campaign questions about her family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and her own links to the movement arose.
Recently, the New York Post reported about Abedin’s work at a Sharia law journal whose editor-in-chief was her mother, Saleha Abedin. Saleha Abedin is also a member of the International Islamic Council for Da’wa and Relief which is chaired by the Muslim Brotherhood leader, Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi. Huma Abedin’s father, Syed Zaynul Abedin, was a professor at the Saudi Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs that was established with the support of the Muslim World League which is one of the leading Muslim Brotherhood organizations worldwide. Notwithstanding the Clinton campaign tries to downplay the evidence.
Hillary Clinton has already done much to support the Muslim Brotherhood agenda while being Secretary of State and would surely do even more as president. Among other things, she pushed the removal from power of the Muslim Brotherhood’s political enemies, the Libyan leader Mohammar Qaddafi and the Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak. In any case there are legitimate worries about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the US-government.
The Department of Homeland Security is the third largest Cabinet department in the government and actually responsible for protecting the USA from terrorism and natural disasters. Notwithstanding the Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson recently participated at the annual conference of the controversial Islamic Society of America (ISNA) and even held a welcome speech empowering the group’s members. At the same event, extremist speakers held their lectures including Jamal Badawi (the founder of the Brotherhood group Muslim American Society) and Nihad Awad (the director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, another Brotherhood entity).
ISNA itself is a group that also originates from the Muslim Brotherhood and plays a role in the trial against the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) for financing terrorism. The HLF has close connections with the Muslim Brotherhood and enhances Hamas’s agenda in the USA.
However, it was not only Johnson who participated at an ISNA conference but also US-President Obama himself when he spoke at the symposium in 2013 and praised the organization for the good partnership with the US-administration. Instead of making relationships with Muslim Brotherhood affiliated groups that aim at the implementation of Islam on a political level the US-government should rather work with anti-Islamist Muslims in order to integrate the Muslim community in the USA.
A leaked German confidential report identifies Turkey as a hub for Islamist groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and various Syrian rebel groups. The document is part of a classified Interior Ministry response to a confidential question from the parliament party “Die Linke”. It accuses the Turkish government and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of supporting terrorist groups like Hamas and Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. Furthermore, the Ministry assesses that statements of solidarity reveal the Turkish government’s ideological affinity with the Muslim Brotherhood. The ongoing Islamization of Turkey’s domestic and foreign policy has made the country a platform of action of Islamists in the Middle East. Although Turkey officially denies support in the form of arms deliveries to Syrian rebel groups, the Turkish press has alleged arms transfers across the border.
Until this incident the German government has never made an official statement on Turkey’s links to extremist groups and even after the leak of the document the German government did not comment on the content.
At the beginning of August, the Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter published an op-ed that was obviously inspired by the killing of Father Jacques Hamel in Normandy, France, by Islamist terrorist. The article was signed by Anders Arborelius, Church of Sweden; Ute Steyer, rabbi of the synagogue in Stockholm; Nadia Marhri Lodin, Swedish Muslim Council; and Mahmoud Khalfi, head of the Swedish Imam Council. Contrary to recent events, they claim that Christians, Jews and Muslims in Europe have traditionally been living side by side peacefully.
Interestingly enough, Mahmoud Khalfi is also believed to be a senior leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Sweden. Thus it comes as some surpise, that leading representatives of the Church of Sweden and of the Jewish community are officially sharing a panel with a Muslim Brotherhood leader, willfully ignoring the stated goals of the MB, i.e. the worldwide implementation of Sharia Law.
Read an eye-opening comment on the piece here:
According to a document recently released by the Home Office, members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood could soon be eligible for political asylum in the UK. The document states, that “those with a high profile in the MB or who have been politically active…may be able to show that they are at risk of persecution…trial also without due process and disproportionate punishment.” The guidance seems to suggest only letting senior members of the group in, since “low-level, non-political or inactive members and supporters are not generally being targeted and it is unlikely that they will be able to demonstrate a real risk of persecution.”
The move to grant asylum to MB members might jeopardize relations with various Middle Eastern countries that have outlawed the MB or parts of the group, like Egypt, Saudi-Arabia and the UAE. Last year, Prime Minister David Cameron rejected the idea to designate the MB as a terrorist organisation, notwithstanding the fact that the Global MB supports all kinds of radical and jihadist activities in the Middle East as well as in Western countries.

In Nashville, Tenn., Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall recently announced that he was partnering with the “American Muslim Advisory Council” (AMAC) to provide an instructor to teach correction officers and other prison staff about the basics of Islam. AMAC grew out of the “Muslim Rapid Response Team,” an initiative of the “Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition” (TIRRC). The initiative had been launched after a prolonged political debate about radicalization and counter-measures.
The issue also highlighted another important aspect: The influence of prison chaplains and radicalization in prisons. This development was highlighted when Warith Deen Umar, former head Islamic chaplain of the New York Department of Corrections, was exposed. In 2003, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, he called the 9/11 hijackers “heroes and martyrs”. Umar also was an official in the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an organization that is generally regarded as one of the most important front organizations of the Muslim Brotherhood in the US. ISNA once sought to be the certifying body for Islamic prison chaplains in the US, but was rejected by the FBI because of its connection to radical organizations.

Israeli analyst Dr. Ephraim Herrera compares the failed coup in Turkey to the terrorist attack in Nice, both happening within two days. While ISIS is clearly set on continuing their terrorist campaign to instill fear into Western societies, the Muslim Brotherhood prefers a more subtle approach. Their strategy has lately been to rely on demographic trends, i.e. the influx of more and more Muslim immigrants to Europe. Dr. Herrera points out, that the current government of Turkey is ideologically close to the Muslim Brotherhood, so that the failure of the coup might as well be good news for the Islamists.

Democratic presidential nominee has recently announced that Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, will be her running mate in this year´s presidential elections. Kaine, a former Governor of Virginia, has a long history of embracing radical Islamists.
In 2007, Kaine chose Muslim American Society (MAS) President Esam Omeish to the state’s Immigration Commission. MAS is generally regarded as one of the most important front organizations of the Muslim Brotherhood in the US. Convicted terrorist Abdurrahman Alamoudi testified in 2012, “Everyone knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood.” Facing extreme pressure, Omeish eventually had to resign from the post.
In September 2011, Kaine spoke at a “Candidates Night” dinner where a Lifetime Achievement Award was awarded to Jamal Barzinji, who the Global Muslim Brotherhood Watch describes as a “founding father of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.”
Barzinji had his home searched in 2003 and was vice president of the International Institute of Islamic Thought, which came under terrorism investigation also. Alas, a strange kind of “Lifetime Achievement”.
It remains the secret of Hillary Clinton why Tim Kaine should be regarded as a “strong on national security” running mate.
