President Obama Sends Support Message To Radical Muslim Brotherhood Front Group
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is a Muslim Brotherhood front group with an interesting history.It was started by, among others, Sami al-Arian, Islamic Jihad's own man in America who was convicted of laundering money and lending material support to terrorist groups. Another prominent Brotherhood jihadist, Adurahman Alamoudi worked closely with ISNA for years. He’s currently in a federal prison for funding al Qaeda and Hamas.
ISNA was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial. Like CAIR, they had been raising money for Hamas, some of which was used to murder American citizens. Many of their top executives were scheduled to be convicted and sent to prison in what would have been an open and shut second trial which might even have resulted in the groups being outlawed - until Eric Holder and the Obama Department of Justice filed 'decline To prosecute' motions on all of the players back in 2011.
Since then, like CAIR, ITNA, The Muslim Public Affairs Council(MPAC) and The North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), ISNA has been a real favorite of the president. One of the president's close advisers is Mohamed Magid, the president of ISNA, who works directly with White House officials and even sits on a Homeland Security group that deals with ‘extremism’.
Another important Obama adviser with extremely close ties to ISNA and CAIR is none other than Dalia Mogahed, President Obama's personal pick to be his adviser on the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, a group most Americans have never heard of both which has real access to the president's ear.Like Magid, she was also a significant contributor to the Homeland Security Advisory Council's Countering Violent Extremism Working Group.It was Mogahed who reportedly helped write President Obama's apologetic speech in Cairo.
Magid and ISNA also participated in a 2012 review of FBI counter-terrorism training documents that ended in the bureau agreeing to purge any training materials documents that ISNA and other Muslim Brotherhood groups found offensive or “Islamophobic.” In fact, they even lobbied, along with other Muslim Brotherhood fronts to get the FBI's role in investigating Islamist terrorism in America reduced significantly, if not entirely.
They did exactly the same thing to the Department of Homeland Security in May of this year, vetting the training materials of anything remotely concerning Islamists, the Brotherhood or "Islamophobia"..with the full support of the president and members of his administration charged with what passes for security.
Mogahed and Magid are by no means unique in terms of being people with extremely close ties to the Ikhwan serving in the Obama Administration.
Again, the question comes up. Why is President Obama so enamored of the Muslim Brotherhood? The message he sent ISNA singles them out as 'White House Partners', a unique honor for a group which was heavily involved in one of the largest money laundering and terrorism trials in U.S. history.
Why has this president consistently intervened on the behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood at home and abroad? What's the benefit to America of supporting and enabling fascists who use a crescent instead of a swastika? Why has no mainstream American journalist ever asked President Obama this question?
