It’s been a while since anyone has blogged here. Hirabist Hunter has been busy and I’m having computer issues which are currently being resolved.
This morning, Andrea from YouTube Smackdown Crew alerted me to a post at the Grendel Report regarding the Global Muslim Brotherhood.
The U.S.-Islamic World Forum, sponsored by the Brookings Institution, has reported that it’s 2011 event was held in the US for the first time and included a large number of individuals tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood as well as their supporters including the following persons….
Before Osama bin Laden formed al Qaeda, he belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood. So did his top deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri and the 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
In addition, the terrorist group Hamas identifies itself as the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch.
Former FBI Special Agent John Guandolo told CBN News the United States must become more aware of the Brotherhood’s growing influence.
“Here in the United States, virtually every prominent Islamic organization is controlled and led by the Muslim Brotherhood,” said Gunadolo. “Why this is key, is because they see that they are going to destroy our Western civilization from within.”
The Brotherhood’s immediate goal, though, is an Islamic state in Egypt — and an end to that country’s peace treaty with Israel.
Looking through the article at the Grendel Report, I noticed the list of scholars who attended the Forum included “Peter Mandaville (George Mason University funded by International Institute of Islamic Thought).” So the IIIT endowment of GMU’s Islamic Studies supports a guy who attends a forum that is populated and influenced by radical people who are tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood. Interesting.
So in our quest to discover what influences helped to radicalize Zach Chesser and Proscovia Nzabanita, maybe GMU’s Islamic Studies department needs a closer examination. It would be a good place to start.
And why are we allowing them on our soil? And what is Hillary doing there? Yes – send an underling. But sending Hillary makes them think we approve. But then maybe the current administration does approve.
