The website of the antiwar coalition known as A.N.S.W.E.R. is reporting that the Muslim American Society (MAS) is one of the initial sponsors of an antiwar march scheduled for September 15 that is timed to coincide with the expected report by General Petraeus on the “Surge” in Iraq. The MAS is a less well-known part of the Muslim Brotherhood network in the U.S. that first came to national attention when the Chicago Tribune did a feature story on the group in September 2004. ANSWER, in turn, was the creation of former attorney general Ramsey Clark and his International Action Center and has its roots in the far left Worker’s World Party. The MAS has participated along side ANSWER since 2003 and it is common for Muslim Brotherhood groups in the U.S. and Europe to be found in coalitions with leftwing and far left political groups who also support Palestinian causes.
