U.S. Muslim Brotherhood Leader To Offer Prayer At Obama Inauguration Prayer Service


The Associated Press is reporting that Ingrid Mattson, the first woman president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), will be offering the Muslim prayer at the Jan. 21 National Prayer Service capping the Obama inauguration. Mattson, an Islamic convert, became the first female President of ISNA in 2006 having previously served as vice-president. Under her tenure, ISNA has developed a relationship with an organization representing Reform Judaism and, as a previous post has discussed, has been criticized for not being sufficiently “radical.” ISNA is one of the organizations comprising the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and has a history of fundamentalism, anti-semitism, and support for terrorism. During the recent Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial, ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator.
