A number of blogs and media outlets are reporting on a letter said to be authored by a knowledgeable source who says that the FBI Executive Assistant Director was to meet yesterday with the Vice-President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) following the official decision by the FBI to use ISNA as ” their official point of contact with the American Muslim community”:
Today, FBI Executive Assistant Director Tom Harrington is meeting at FBIHQ with Imam Majid of the ADAMS Center in Sterling,VA. Imam Majid is also the Vice-President of the Islamic Society of North America – a known Muslim Brotherhood entity and un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Trial in Dallas in which all defendants were found guilty of leading the Hamas front group. This was the largest terrorism financing trial in the history of the United States. This meeting today follows yesterday’s official decision by FBIHQ to use ISNA as their official point of contact with the American Muslim community. ISNA is one of the largest and most prominent Muslim Brotherhood entities in the US. The Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 with two objectives (which are their same two objectives today): implement Islamic Law and re-establish the global Islamic Caliphate. Their creed, which is still their creed today, includes “…martyrdom in the way of Allah is our highest inspiration.” We know that Assistant US attorneys are not going forward with prosecutions because it is “politically problematic.” And now agents and attorneys aware of this decision believe it obligates them to violate US law by forcing them to work with a front group for a designated terrorist group (Hamas). It is worth reminding you all that the Hamas Covenant states Hamas is a Muslim Brotherhood entity, and that Hamas is a designated terrorist organization by the US government. I strongly encourage you all to notify your state and federal elected officials and push them to call for the strongest possible action against the FBI, to include the removal of all senior FBI officials who approved this decision.
The Investigative Project is also reporting that they have confirmed that the meeting did indeed take place.
A report by the Hudson Institute has identified ISNA as a major part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. ISNA has a long history of fundamentalism, anti-semitism, and support for terrorism and during the recent Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial, ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator. Although recently ISNA has issued condemnations of terrorism which for the first time identify Hamas and Hezbollah by name, there is no indication that the organization has ever addressed or acknowledged its history. ISNA has made ongoing attempts to form a coalition with elements of the U.S. Jewish community.
In late January of this year, the FBI severed all formal contact with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) over the organization’s ties to Hamas.
