Anisa Abd el Fattah, associated with several U.S. Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas support organizations, was scheduled to speak this week before a student group that is known for its ties to Hezbollah. According to the conference website, Anisa Abd el Fattah was a featured speaker at the 37th annual convention of the Muslim Student Association-Persian Speaking Group which a former FBI director described in 1999 as follows:
There are still significant numbers of Iranian students attending United States universities and technical institutes. A significant number of these students are hardcore members of the pro-Iranian student organization known as the Anjoman Islami, which is comprised almost exclusively of fanatical, anti-American, Iranian Shiite Muslims. The Iranian government relies heavily upon these students studying in the United States for low-level intelligence and technical expertise. However, the Anjoman Islami also represents a significant resource base upon which the government of Iran can draw to maintain the capability to mount operations against the United States, if it so decides.
In 2003, an analyst at the American Jewish Committee said that the group openly disseminates the message of Hezbollah.
As a previous post has discussed, Anisa Abd El Fattah is the Islamic name used by an individual identified as Caroline Keeble whose online resume indicates was a former President of Hamas-linked think-tank known as the United Association for Studies and Research (USAR. In addition to her role at USAR, she was also associated with the Council On American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a contributor to the publication of the Muslim American Society (MAS) and a blog report says she was also a paid consultant to Abdurahman Alamoudi’s now defunct American Muslim Council (AMC). CAIR, the MAS and the AMC are all linked to the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. In January 2006, Dr. Fatah authored a lengthy article entitled “How Jewish Zionists undermined the US” that was posted on a Swedish virulently anti-Semitic website in which she asserts that the activities of convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff is part of a “Zionist” plot to control the U.S. A prior post has discussed another of Dr. Fattah’s anti-Semitic writings where makes a heinous comparison claiming that linking Islam and terrorism is like blaming Jews for the Holocaust because there were Jews who cooperated with the Nazis. There is no indication about the current status of Dr. Fattah’s school board application.
