What is most disturbing about the latest evidence to emerge from my DoJ FIOA (Freedom of Information ACT) request is not just the strategy of Muslim Brotherhood groups (ie CAIR, ISNA, MSA, et al) for stealth infiltration and overthrow of the US government, but the success they have achieved — the level of access, infiltration and influence in the highest level of government and media.
During the course of the HLF tr ial,many incriminating documents were entered into evidence. Perhaps themost significant of these was “AnExplanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group inNorth America,” employing US Muslim Brotherhood ….
groups that could help convince Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad ineliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and’sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
These groups (CAIR, ISNA, NAIT, et al) were identified in the US government’s case against Islamic terror funding “charities” as”participants in a network of U.S.-based organizations affiliated with thedesignated foreign terrorist organization.”
According to the GOVERNMENT ’S MEMORANDUM IN OPPOSITION TO PETITIONERS ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA AND NORTH AMERICAN ISLAMIC TRUST’S MOTION FOREQUITABLE RELIEF Page 12
At the end of the document, the memorandum lists thoseMuslim Brotherhood organizations that – if they all worked together –
could help accomplish this grand objective. These organizations includeISNA, NAIT, the Occupied Land Fund (OL F ) (the former name of the HolyLand Foundation), the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), theUnited Association for Studies and Research (UASR), and others. Id.
ISNAand NAIT, in fact, shared more with HLF than just a pa rentorganization. They were intimately connected with the HLF and its
assigned task of providing financial support to HAMAS. Shortly after HAMAS was founded in 1987, as an outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood, Govt. Exh. 21-61, the International Muslim Brotherhood ordered the Muslim Brotherhood chapters throughout the world to create Palestine
Committees, whose job it was to supp ort HAMAS with “media, money and men.” Govt. Exh. 3-15.
The U.S.-Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S.Palestine Committee, which documents reflect was initially comprised ofthree organizations: the OLF (HLF), the IAP, and the UASR. CAIR waslater added to these organizations. Govt. Exh. 3-78 (listing IAP, HLF,UA SR and CAIR as part of the Palestine Committee, and stating that thereis “[n]o doubt America is the ideal location to train the necessary resources to support the Movement worldwide . . .”). The mandate ofthese organizations, per the International Muslim Bro therhood, was tosupport HAMAS, and the HLF’s particular role was to raise money tosupport HAMAS’ organizations inside the Palestinian territories. Govt.Exh. 3- 17 (objective of the Palestine Committee is to support HAMAS).
Why It Should Always Be Called ‘Hamas-CAIR’ Pamela Geller, American Thinker
Monday, the Supreme Court declined to hear appeals from the Holy Land
Five: five former officials of what was once the largest Islamic charity
in the United States, the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), who were
convicted of funneling millions in charitable donations to the jihad
terror group Hamas. That effectively ends the story of the Holy Land
Foundation, but since many of its co-conspirators are still active,
notably the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic
Society of North America (ISNA), the case is worth revisiting.
2008, the U.S. government filed a memorandum in opposition to the
request from two of the groups linked to the HLF, the Islamic Society of
North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), that
the “unindicted co-conspirator” designation they received during the HLF
trial be removed (it wasn’t). The memorandum is a useful and
illuminating summary of what some of the most prominent Islamic groups
in the U.S. have been involved with.
noted that some of HLF’s top officials, including Shukri Abu Baker, its
secretary and chief executive officer; Mohammed El-Mezain, its director
of endowments; and Ghassan Elashi, its chairman of the board, were
charged with “providing material support to a foreign terrorist
organization,” as well as with “engaging in prohibited financial
transactions with a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, money
laundering, filing false tax returns, and several conspiracy charges,
including: conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist
organization…conspiracy to provide funds, goods and services to
Specially Designated Global Terrorist … and conspiracy to commit money laundering[.]”
the HLF officials “were not acting alone.” Rather, they were
“operating in concert with a host of individuals and organizations
dedicated to sustaining and furthering the Hamas movement. … The
object of the conspiracy was to support Hamas. The support will be shown
to have take several forms, including raising money, propaganda,
proselytizing, recruiting, as well as many other types of actions
intended to continue to promote and move forward Hamas’s agenda of the
destruction of the State of Israel and establishment of an Islamic state
in its place.”
and NAIT were among the groups listed as “members of the U.S. Muslim
Brotherhood.” During the trial, the government introduced evidence
“expressly linking ISNA and NAIT to the HLF and its principals; the
Islamic Association for Palestine and its principals; the Muslim
Brotherhood in the United States and its Palestine Committee, headed by
Hamas official Mousa Abu Marzook; and the greater Hamas-affiliated
conspiracy described in the Government’s case-in-chief.” The Islamic
Association for Palestine, since shut down as a Hamas front, is CAIR’s
evidence introduced at the trial “established that ISNA and NAIT were
among those organizations created by the U.S.-Muslim Brotherhood.” They
were listed as among those organizations dedicated to the Muslim
Brotherhood’s stated goal, according to
a captured internal document made public during the HLF trial, of
“eliminating and destroying the Western Civilization from within and
sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the
believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made
victorious over other religions.”
government memorandum explains that ISNA and NAIT “shared more with HLF
than just a parent organization. They were intimately connected with
the HLF and its assigned task of providing financial support to Hamas.
Shortly after Hamas was founded in 1987, as an outgrowth of the Muslim
Brotherhood, Govt. Exh. 21-61, the International Muslim Brotherhood
ordered the Muslim Brotherhood chapters throughout the world to create
Palestine Committees, whose job it was to support Hamas with ‘media, money
and men.'” To accomplish this, the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S.
created the U.S. Palestine Committee, which CAIR later joined. “The
mandate of these organizations, per the International Muslim
Brotherhood, was to support Hamas, and the HLF’s particular role was to
raise money to support Hamas’z organizations inside the Palestinian territories.”
The memorandum adds that “during the early years of the HLF’s operation, HLF raised money
and supported Hamas through a bank account it held with ISNA at NAIT”
and that “ISNA checks deposited into the ISNA/NAIT account for the HLF
were often made payable to ‘the Palestinian Mujahadeen,’ the original
name for the Hamas military wing.” That is, the money went to Islamic jihadists dedicated to murdering Israeli civilians.
all this, the Holy Land Five have become the latest darlings of the
America-hating left and their Islamic supremacist allies in the U.S.
Al-Awda, the “Palestine Right to Return Coalition,” held a demonstration
on October 25, four days before the Supreme Court ruling, in honor of
these jihadists, and called them “victims to the ever-growing over-reach
of counter-terrorism programs.”
