Islam Online Identifies Likely Nigerian Muslim Brotherhood Organization


In printing a statement by a Nigerian Islamic leader, IslamOnline (IOL) appears to have identified an element of the Nigerian Muslim Brotherhood. Responding to the failed airline bombing, the IOL report cited the following statement:

While condemning the terrorist plot in the strongest terms, Nigerian Muslim leaders are warning against the exploitation of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s case to mount a witch hunting against Muslims. “The Nigerian Muslim community has always been dedicated to the protection of our national security locally and the global security and peace,” Disu Kamor, Media & Communications Director for the Muslim Public Affairs Centre (MPAC), told “It is therefore important that law-abiding Nigerian Muslims should not be targeted or singled out because of their faith or national origin.”

It is likely no coincidence that the Muslim Public Affairs Centre (MPAC) has a similar name and has the same acronym as the Muslim Public Action Council in the U.S., an important part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. The NIgerian MPAC web site links to the following organizations all of which are part of or have ties to the U.S. and global Muslim Brotherhoods:

In addition, the Nigerian MPAC website’s article archive indicates that, consistent with the global Muslim Brotherhood, the organization’s focus is largely on issues relating to Palestine and Israel. It should also be noted that the website is hosted on a U.S. server owned by a company frequenly employed by Brotherhood organizations for web hosting.
