RECOMMENDED READING: “Tampa’s OakTree Institute – Improving U.S. Islamic “Activist” Skills”


The Cultural Jihad blog has posted an excellent analysis of a recent example of one of the myriad of organizations that are constantly being created by the Global Muslim Brotherhood. The analysis of the Tampa, Fl based OakTree Institute begins:

May 9, 2013 With the news coverage of the Boston bombing,  it was reported that much of the media was missing the Tsarnaev brothers’ ties to the Muslim Students Association (MSA).  At this point, little will probably be learned of the actual connection to the MSA – clean-up is well underway, if not already completed. 

For the most part, MSA and other Islamic special interest groups are not focused on violent acts in the United States.  Terrorist actions tend to be counter-productive to fundraising and the MB’s stated methods towards a goal of the desired ‘grand Jihad’.

The Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. (MB) has provided documentary evidence along with member interviews that provide a very clear understanding of their agenda to establish the dominance of Islam and sharia in the west.   Subordinate organizations working to this end have been identified and the role of the Muslim American Society (MAS) to act as the MB’s public face was explained.

Mohamed Akram’s An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America, indicated:

‘The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.‘

Realizing that ‘settlement’ takes several generations, MAS/MB groups in the U.S. work closely with youth and student organizations to educate and groom the next generation of cultural jihadis.  The Boston bombing actually caused the postponement of a  MAS  training event by the OakTree Institute, with offices in Tampa, Florida.

Established in 2011, the OakTree Institute is an Islamic Education and Leadership Development Institute that has been providing lectures, seminars and camps.  Their website states it acts as a ‘leadership academy developing value driven, action focused, results oriented citizens of tomorrow. OakTree Institute is an affiliate of the Muslim American Society (MAS).’

The Muslim American Society (MAS) was identified in a Hudson Institute report as a part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and closely tied to the Egyptian organization.
