This speaks to the two faces of Islam. Just last week I posted a news story of a devout Muslim who was plotting an attack on the Royal Cheshire County Show attack.
“By day [the jihadist] Mala appeared to be a hardworking well-liked man but when he got home he’d dedicate his time to helping promote truly evil causes,” said Detective Superintendent Will Chatterton of Counter Terrorism Policing North West.
That pretty much sums it up, does it not? The two faces of Islam.
MEF, May 4, 2018:PHILADELPHIA – May 4, 2018 – A Middle East Forum report, Islamists with Direct Ties to Terrorists Lobby Congress, written by Egyptian specialist Cynthia Farahat, has uncovered troubling connections between organizers and delegates of the annual Muslim Advocacy Day in the U.S. Capitol and prominent terror operatives. For the full report, click here; and for an exposé of the organizers linked to terror groups, click here.
Islamists with Direct Ties to Terrorists Lobby CongressIntroductionFor the past three years, Islamists with ties to terrorist operatives have been meeting with members of Congress. Every springsince 2015, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), a coalition of national and local Islamist organizations, hashosted an annual lobbying event titled “Muslim Advocacy Day” in Congress, at the Capitol Visitor Center’s Auditorium.Over the course of several days, Islamists from across the United States visit congressional offices to lobby for their nationaland international agendas.The next Muslim Advocacy is scheduled to take place on May 7-8, 2018.The annual event is a serious lobbying effort. The 2017 lobby day, hosted by the USCMO and Council on American-IslamicRelations (CAIR), connected national, regional and state Islamist organizations and community members with theirelected representatives in Congress. CAIR reported that 400 delegates from 30 states had met with some 230 elected officialsand congressional staff.Among the delegates at the 2017 Muslim Advocacy Day were many Muslim Brotherhood leaders directly linked to violent Islamists. USCMO’s own leadership includes an Islamist once accused by the U.S. government of funding terrorism conducted by al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Several leaders in the delegation have elsewhere hosted Muslim Brotherhood operatives convicted of terrorism by a U.S. ally. The Muslim Brotherhood in America clearly defined its goals in a 1991 document titled “The Explanatory Memorandum, which outlined the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic goals in North America. Federal prosecutors introduced this memorandum as evidence during the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) terror financing trial in 2008 the largest terror financing case in U.S. history. The memorandum discussed what the Brotherhood calls Amalia Jihadiya Hadaria (“Civilizational Jihad Operation”). According to the Brotherhood, the Civilizational Jihad Operation means “destroying the Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house.”The Muslim Brotherhood-organized “Muslim Advocacy Day” on Capitol Hill is part of this effort, as Islamists seek to exert influence within the People’s House to further their totalitarian agenda. They have already had some success: USCMO’s leadership claimed responsibility for improving relations between then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood. The U.S. has failed to understand what our allies in the Middle East already know: the Muslim Brotherhood poses a serious threat.USCMO was founded in 2014, according to its website, by eight American Islamist organizations:• American Muslims for Palestine (AMP)• Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)• Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)• The Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA)• The Muslim American Society (MAS)• Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA)• Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA)• The Mosque Care
One of these groups, CAIR, was labeled by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator during the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) terror-finance trial, because of its pervasive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Palestine Committee,” which was established in 1988 to support the terrorist group Hamas. ICNA, meanwhile, has been linked to terrorist organizations in South Asia, and AMP is widely considered to be part of Hamas’s network in the U.S.
It should not come as a surprise, then, that the USCMO officials and delegates taking part in its “Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill” event include Islamist operatives with links to extremism and terror.One of these groups, CAIR, was labeled by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator during the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) terror-finance trial, because of its pervasive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Palestine Committee,” which was established in 1988 to support the terrorist group Hamas.
