The Creeping Sharia blog has posted an articled titled “Wake Forest University’s Radical Imam” which details the background of Khalid Griggs, the Muslim Assistant Chaplain for Wake Forest University. The post begins:
Radical is a subjective term, he’s no more radical than Mohammed right? Semantics aside, couple this with terror-linked Muslims pushing sharia in elementary schools and pro-sharia Muslims rewriting textbooks and you can see how quickly a nation can be destroyed from within. via Wake Forest University’s Radical Imam by Clare M. Lopez When Wake Forest University hired Khalid Griggs in February 2010 to be its first Muslim Assistant Chaplain, President Nathan O. Hatch hailed the “broader dialogue among people of different faith traditions” and the “greater awareness of differing beliefs” that he apparently supposed would flow naturally from the appointment.… In the case of Khalid Griggs, Hatch’s failure has been and continues to be egregious. Even a cursory Google search readily turns up the information that Griggs is closely affiliated with the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). Had Hatch done even the minimal homework expected of a college sophomore, he would know that ICNA was included on a Muslim Brotherhood document submitted (unopposed) into evidence in the Holy Land Foundation trial titled, “A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends,” which identified ICNA as an entity or affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood. Further, ICNA was named by the Department of Justice (DoJ), which prosecuted the case, an unindicted co-conspirator. To make things even worse, it turns out that Wake Forest’s new imam isn’t just “affiliated” with ICNA: he’s the Chairman for the ICNA Council for Social Justice. This means he’s a senior ranking official of an organization the Justice Department named over three years ago as an unindicted co-conspirator in a terror case. There’s more. Khalid Griggs is the Imam and a founding member of the Community Mosque in Winston-Salem, NC. Together with other founding members, including Ibrahim Hanif, Jamal Abdullah, and Salih Abdul Latif, Griggs is a member of The Islamic Party of North America. Its signature publication, “Taking Islam to the Street: The Da’wah of the Islamic Party of North America,” candidly describes its ideology as “a revolutionary Islam” grounded in the teachings of Maulana Abu’l a’la Maududi, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Muammar Qaddaffi, and Sayyed Qutb. Maududi was the hugely influential Pakistani Salafist who founded Jama’at-i-Islami (Society of Islam) and effectively bridged the thinking of Hasan al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Sayyed Qutb, perhaps the Muslim Brotherhood’s foremost theoretician.

The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is a less well-known part of the Muslim Brotherhood network in the U.S., generally thought to be closely tied to the Jamaat-e-Islami organization of Southeast Asia, itself known to be allied with the Muslim Brotherhood. ICNA is particularly close to the Muslim American Society, a part of the US Muslim Brotherhood and tied to the Egyptian organization, and the two organizations have been holding joint annual conventions for many years. Previous posts have discussed ICNA ad campaigns intended to present Islam to the U.S. public. The New York campaign drew national media attention when it was reported that Siraj Wahajj, an American Islamic convert associated with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, was behind the New York campaign.
