U.S. State Department Brings U.S. Muslim Brotherhood Together With Pakistani Group


The website of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) reported that a delegation from Pakistan’™s ‘Ittihad Tanzeemat Madaris Deenia (ITMD)’ visited IIIT on Friday June 29, 2007. The ITMD is Pakistan’s top Madrassa oversight board and the delegation was invited to the US by the Department of State as part of the ‘Islamic Education in the US’, a component of the Department’™s Visitor Leadership Program. Participating in the event were Dr. Abubaker Al-Shingieti and Dr. Jamal Barzinji of IIIT as well as Dr. Douglas Johnston, President of the International Center for Religion and Diplomacy (ICRD). Both IIIT and ICRD are part of a group known as Muslims for Constructive Engagement (AMCE) whose goal is to develop formal partnerships with the U.S. government and this visit, sponsored by the State Department, is evidence that the project has had success. The leadership of the AMCE is represents almost all the important institutions comprising the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, including IIIT which is under investigation by the U.S. government in connection with the financing of terrorism.
