The Muslim Brotherhood Comes to America
May 27, 2011
Page 1 of 2

Although lately, we have been hearing from a broad spectrum of the media about the wide influence of the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the Middle East, serious discussions about the Brotherhood inside America are few and far between. This weekend, one of the South Asian leaders of the group will be a featured speaker at an Islamic convention held in Connecticut - a prime example of the reach this extremist movement has within our borders and how American Muslim organizations are partnering with it.

The media’s reporting of revolutions taking place in various Middle Eastern nations has raised concern about the potential for the Muslim Brotherhood (MB)– or Ikhwan al-Muslimun – to gain power within these nations, specifically Egypt, where the global headquarters of the Brotherhood is located – a concern that is warranted, as the Brotherhood is responsible for the emergence of a number of terrorist movements around the globe, including Hamas and al-Qaeda.

This concern has also brought a newfound awareness of the Brotherhood for Americans, who previously might not have heard of the group. What many Americans still are ignorant of, however, is the fact that the group has a fairly large presence inside the U.S., where many Brotherhood entities operate under the guise of “civil rights” organizations.

Contemporary U.S.-based groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) have their beginnings in the Brotherhood.

The Muslim Students Association (MSA), with chapters in most of, if not all of, the universities throughout the country, was the first major Brotherhood group in the U.S. Further, the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) owns the properties of hundreds of Brotherhood-oriented mosques and Islamic centers.

Another Brotherhood organization – one of the largest within the United States – is the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). Started in the late 60s and early 70s, ICNA began as an American arm of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), the Muslim Brotherhood of Pakistan.

Beginning on May 28th, 2011, along with its event partner, the Muslim American Society (MAS), ICNA will be holding its 36th annual convention, entitled “Quran: Guidance Towards a Just and Balanced Way.” The event is scheduled to take place at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, Connecticut.

When one party is trying to restrict the franchise and the other is trying to expand it, you have a contest of past vs. future. The age of white dominance is coming to an end. A multiracial future beckons. Regardless of how race colors their personal views, more than a few Republican officials and operatives are seeking to stem this demographic tide, hoping to squeeze another victory, perhaps the last, out of a monoracial coalition.[...]

In the past, vote suppression tactics percolated in both parties. But with Republicans seeking to turn back the demographic tide rather than accommodate it, voter suppression is gaining a distinctly Republican signature. The long-term risks to the party are enormous. It’s not clear how many voters in 2012 will be seriously inconvenienced or even thwarted altogether by suppression tactics. You can make a pretty good guess, however, about how long their outrage -- over what happened and who was responsible -- will last.

The Muslim Brotherhood Comes to America
Page 2 of 2

"According to ICNA’s website, featured as speakers at this year’s event will be a number of Islamic radicals. These include Siraj Wahhaj, a government-named “unindicted co-conspirator” for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and Jamal Badawi, whose work, Gender Equity in Islam, justifies wife beating.

Another of the scheduled speakers is Yusuf Islahi, whose involvement with ICNA is substantial. In addition to speaking at ICNA functions, Islahi has been the Chief Patron of ICNA’s Islamic outreach (dawah) faction: Why Islam (WI). Moreover, until recently, Islahi’s personal website, farrukh.net , was the Registrant for ICNA National’s official site.

Islahi has also been directly involved with Jamaat-e-Islami as a member of its Central Advisory Council, the Markazi Majlis-e-Shoora, of the JI-Hind, the Indian branch of Jamaat-e-Islami. In this position, he is currently serving his fifth term -- someone involved in both the Muslim Brotherhood overseas and here at home.

While the ICNA event will most probably get news coverage, it is likely that no mention will be made in the media of the Brotherhood or ICNA or Ilashi’s association with it. These will, in all likelihood, be ignored, as they have been so many times in the past; and America’s citizens will remain uninformed and oblivious to what is happening around them and the threat they face.

If the Brotherhood has been responsible for the emergence of terrorist movements around the globe, why do we believe that cannot happen here at home?

It may take an American Islamic revolution for the reporters to snap out of their political correctness-induced comas and begin to discuss who is really behind these “conventions”– the Muslim Brotherhood. Though, by then, it will be too late."

Let's see what's been debunked.
There were cameras on site.
... yes, there were cameras on site and we have video of the Al Qaeda attack from beginning to end of a 7-hour battle. We also have video footage from drones.
... no, there wasn't a "spontaneous" demonstration, like the Obama lie (assuming Obama is actually in charge of anything and the US ambassador to the UN and Secretary of State are speaking what is the consensus authorized by the president to promote) states.
Or, Obama isn't in charge of anything and he doesn't even know what happened there. After all, we know factually that Obama, as a rule, doesn't even attend security briefings. And, we know factually he didn't even attend the security briefing the morning after the attack.
If you're going to attend just one security briefing, shouldn't it be the briefing the morning after the goddam attack?
So, since we know factually Obama was not briefed at the security friefing after the attack, and we have no idea where he was during the attack while everyone was watching it real-time on live video, and he took off to party in Las Vegas the morning after the attack, who told Susan Rice what lie to repeat on all the television networks and at the UN?

And, why in the hell would Hillary Clinton tell Ty Woods' father the maker of a video that didn't even exist when Al Qaeda planned the attack would be arrested and prosecuted? For f**k*ng what?

To answer this post, you have to answer two questions?

Who told Susan Rice what lie to repeat?
Why did Hillary Clinton tell Ty Woods' father a maker of a video would be arrested and prosecuted?

I'll bet food stamp recipients don't care what food costs and I doubt if they clip coupons.

Hey there Florida.

Here in Ocala Cox Cable is out over the whole area right now. We still have phone and internet, but they better get this FIXED and I mean SOON!

If the couch potato Cheetos munchers can't watch their usual junk on TV, they might just shuffle out and vote. Of course, this weather COULD deter them and it WON'T stop anyone voting Repubican because they understand what's at stake here.
