(Centennial Fellow) It has been said that the truth offends those who don’t have it. It would appear Senator John McCain and Speaker John Boehner do not have the truth and the facts showing the danger the Muslim Brotherhood’s movement in America's government poses today. Americans should be very concerned about this.
In letters dated June 13, 2012, five Members of Congress – Representatives Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Tom Rooney (R-FL), Trent Franks (R-AZ), and Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) -- requested that Inspector Generals from the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice and State, as well as the IG from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, investigate the penetration of senior Muslim Brotherhood operatives into our national security decision-making apparatus in America.
This is a reasonable request, since a massive amount of factual evidence exists which specifically identifies individuals and organizations which are a part of the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in America directly involved in key positions inside our security agencies.
Yet, American political leaders from both parties continue to disparage this request in personal terms, giving clear indication they are completely ignorant of the facts in this matter.
The latest blast came from leaders in the GOP, publicly defending a senior advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff to the U.S. Secretary of State, Huma Abedin. This individual's immediate family founded a Muslim Brotherhood front group which, at a minimum, raises questions about Abedin’s position inside the government. If her parents were in leadership positions in organizations the U.S. government knew were fronts for the KGB or Chinese Intelligence, we would not be having this discussion. But because it is the Muslim Brotherhood, which many American leaders have either coddled, worked with, or ignored, these five Members of Congress who are abiding by their oaths of office and asking for a legitimate investigation into this potentially damaging espionage issue, are being attacked by Senator McCain and Speaker Boehner. Shoot the messenger.
As a point of reference, three years ago Congresswoman Sue Myrick (R-NC) called on the Department of Justice to brief all members of Congress on the implications of the US v. Holy Land Foundation trial, which revealed many of the prominent Islamic organization in America today, including the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), are a part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Jihad here. DOJ never fulfilled this request.
Speaker Boehner said in defense of Abedin, “From everything that I do know of her, she has a sterling character. Accusations like this being thrown around are pretty dangerous.” What is actually dangerous is that the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives remains so grossly ignorant about a threat inside our nation nearly eleven years after 9/11.
For his part, Senator McCain came to Abedin’s aide by saying that the comments made about her “rest solely on a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations of members of Huma's family." This necessarily means that Mr. McCain did no study at all of the facts of the matter, because they clearly and specifically reveal the organizations in which her parents and family are involved and their ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. He also criticized the Congressional letter for lacking any “instance of an action, a decision or a public position that Huma has taken while at the State Department or as a member of then-Sen. Clinton's staff that would lend credence to the charge that she is promoting anti-American activities within our government." This will require a lengthier retort.
Are Senator McCain and Speaker Boehner aware of the following facts?
• The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is the largest Muslim Brotherhood (MB) organization in North America, created to be the “nucleus” for the Islamic Movement, according to MB documents seized by the FBI in Annandale, Virginia in 2004.
• Because of the evidence ISNA is a Brotherhood front, as well as the numerous financial documents detailing money going directly from ISNA and their banks to Hamas entities overseas, ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history (US v. Holy Land Foundation), which was adjudicated in 2008 in Dallas, Texas.
• When ISNA filed a motion with the federal court to have their name removed from the unindicted co-conspirator list, the government stated that ISNA exists to be a financial support entity for Hamas. The federal judge agreed stating the government provided “ample evidence” and left ISNA on the list. A three-judge appellate panel unanimously agreed and left ISNA on the unindicted co-conspirator list.
• ISNA’s two key directors and its President, Mohamed Magid (pictured above), all work with Secretary Clinton and her office. So, the leaders of a Hamas-supporting entity are advising the U.S. Secretary of State.
Huma Abedin is an adviser and Deputy Chief of Staff to the U.S. Secretary of State. She supports the Secretary’s work with ISNA. If Abedin is not aware ISNA is a Hamas support entity, she is incompetent at her job and should be relieved of her duties. If she is aware ISNA is a Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas entity and is not making the Secretary and the other staff aware of this, there is a much greater problem. Since Abedin’s parents co-founded the Institute for Muslim Minority Affairs with backing from the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim World League, questions about her loyalty and affiliations are not only proper; they are required as a matter of policy for such a position in our government.
Are Mr. McCain and Speaker Boehner aware that Secretary Clinton’s official position on the so-called “Arab Spring” was that it was a freedom movement led by students who organized on Twitter? How could the U.S. Secretary of State refer to the Muslim Brotherhood’s revolution in the Middle East this way? How could she get this so catastrophically wrong? Perhaps the influence exerted by the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-supporting entity ISNA has something to do with it.
Are Senator McCain and Speaker Boehner aware that ISNA President Mohamed Magid spoke at a Counter-Terrorism training program at CIA Headquarters at Langley last week? Or that ISNA advised Senator Richard Durbin’s Senate committee before his hearings in the summer of 2011? Or that Mohamed Magid was at the last two Iftar Dinners at the White House? Is the Secret Service aware that the leader of a Hamas support entity has been coming into the White House? Or that Mohamed Magid has worked with the National Security Council and sits on the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Committee?
Are the American people aware that the very agencies legally charged to support and defend the Constitution and this nation are working with the leader of a known Hamas-supporting entity? And ISNA/Magid are only one example of this massive security breach into our system by the Muslim Brotherhood.
There is ample reason for a significant investigation into the penetration of the U.S. government, since one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s most senior leaders has access to our most sensitive intelligence agencies.
Perhaps Senator McCain and Speaker Boehner will come out and publicly apologize to Congresswoman Bachmann and the other courageous members of Congress, then share the same outrage they showed these five congressmen by exposing the Muslim Brotherhood’s penetration into our national security apparatus.
That would be a step in the right direction
