If you don’t believe that this movement to institutionalize sharia is growing, think again. The Muslim Brotherhood, which was recently labeled by the Egyptian government as a terrorist organization, just formed its own political party right here in America.
With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc.
‘Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016,” said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups.
“We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.”
USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of “institutionalizing policies” favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.
Documents have been found that show that the Brotherhood is using various front groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to push its agenda:
The subversive plan was spelled out in hundreds of pages of founding archives that the FBI confiscated from a Brotherhood leader’s home in the Washington suburbs after 9/11.
Translated from Arabic, the secret documents listed a number of Brotherhood front organizations — some of which just happen to make up the newly formed USCMO.
Front and center is the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, the catalyst behind this Trojan horse jihadist political party.
CAIR is linked in federal criminal court documents to the terrorist group Hamas, the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch. CAIR’s chief Awad, who announced the USCMO at the National Press Club, is so radioactive, the FBI refuses to do outreach with him and his so-called Muslim-rights group until it can “resolve whether there continues to be a connection between its executives and Hamas.”
Wow. This is frightening. While we don’t support the censorship of political speech from anyone, no organization should be able to get away with being connected to terrorists and terrorist activity. In the interest of national security, the FBI can and should investigate this group to see if it is funneling money to Hamas and other terrorist organizations.
