The Muslim Brotherhood’s stated objective in the U.S. is to “wage a grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house.” This is done through thinly-disguised front organizations with credentials as “moderates” that can win the affection of the media and officials. These fronts’ relationship with the government of the state of Illinois is a perfect example of this strategy’s success.

On August 30, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn announced who would serve on his newly-created Muslim American Advisory Council.  Among those chosen were Ahmed Rehab and Safaa Zarzour. The former is the National Strategic Communications Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Executive-Director of its Chicago chapter. The latter is the secretary-general of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and is the chairman of CAIR-Chicago’s board. ISNA is listed in the Brotherhood’s own documents as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.”

Both CAIR and ISNA are Muslim Brotherhood fronts and are listed by the federal government as “unindicted co-conspirators” in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, which was shut down for financing Hamas. CAIR’s founders belonged to the Islamic Association for Palestine, which was also shut down as a front for Hamas. The two organizations went to court to get their designations lifted, but a judge determined that the government provided “ample evidence” connecting them to Hamas to justify the labels.

In 2007, the federal government said that, “From its founding by Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists” and “the conspirators agreed to use deception to conceal from the American public their connections to terrorists.” In 2009, the FBI ended its outreach programs with CAIR because of the evidence of its involvement with Hamas.

The well-documented and well-publicized evidence of CAIR and ISNA’s involvement with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood has not stopped Illinois Governor Quinn and other officials from courting them. After all, opponents of the Brotherhood fronts are subject to being called “Islamophobes. As Quinn said in his announcement of his Muslim American Advisory Council, Illinois has “more than 400,000 Muslims and 300 mosques” and that’s a lot of voters.

“I congratulate CAIR-Chicago on another successful year of serving the needs of the Muslim population in Illinois, and for working toward ensuring justice and civil rights for all the communities you serve,” Quinn said in an email in March. Circuit County Clerk Dorothy Brown and Attorney General Lisa Madigan also complimented the group.

The website of CAIR-Chicago lists endorsements from the Secretary of State, five Democratic members of Congress, four mayors including that of Chicago, and various other officials in the state. It even includes praise from the superintendent of the Chicago Police Department and the Springfield FBI office’s Special Agent in Charge. Another Democratic Congressman, Mike Quigley of the 5th district, apologized to Muslims “on behalf of this country for discrimination you have faced” in September, playing into the theme of anti-Muslim hysteria and victimization the Islamists constantly use.

    Chicago, Illinois…land of the mob and the deceived.

    • Anamah

      It seems this same door was used by Mr Obama to enter at the beginning of his political career. It should be interesting to refocus in those people, his friends, their contacts, see who were those politicians, security and military forces, civil personnel their businesses and Media members… And today we should investigate all connexion of Islamics and terrorist attempt to promote laws or advance of religion/cultural activities, as criminal activity threats and / or treason to USA. We must stop Islamization!!!

    Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

    i s l a m IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    i s l a m strives for world domination.

    The q u r a n commands m u s l i m s to exercise jihad.

    The q u e r n commands muslims to establish s h a r i a h law.

    The q u e r n commands m u s l i m s to impose i s l a m on the entire world.

    i s l a m is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    i s l a m IS and has remained a death cult from its beginnings.

    i s l a m wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    s h a r i a h law is a law that controls every detail of life in a i s l a m i c society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the q u r a n is the call to j i h a d.

    J i h a d means a lot of things and is a r a b i c for battle.

    i s l a m means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    i s l a m and freedom, i s l a m and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

    m o h a m e d 's "wife" was six years old.

    That makes m o h a m e d a P E D O P H I L E!!!

    And you want to base a "R e l i g i o n" on this a z s -holes rantings?

    Are you INSANE?

    I STAND with Israel

  • Dave

    What a bunch of Coward Traitors to the American People. What is it they don't get about the Muslims wanting to destroy America and to kill Americans. We need to bring our Soldiers home to start fighting the War that's about to happen in America. because of the Ignorance of our Political Leaders who have been bought and paid for.

  • StephenD

    I hope, Mr. Mauro, that you send copies of this to all the Chicago newspapers, TV news outlets, etc. and to the Governor himself to call him on it publicly. Perhaps some good old fashioned SHAME is in order for these dolts. Endorsing avowed enemies of the United States is treasonous. They too have raised their right hands and swore to protect the Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. A group dedicated to the proposition of "destroying our miserable house from within" to my mind, is a domestic enemy.

  • Asher

    Look at Islam's connection with Hitler, the collapse of the economy, and Radials uniting to try and destroy Israel then and now. We are in the same set up now with this administration, Soros, and The Radical Islamists…They are United in Hate and will destroy a free society.. Illinois is beyond help, the state is so in debt and so corrupt from Blagoevitch, Ryan, Quinn, Rahmbo, and the Daileys it will never be in the black, or have a fair voting system because the dead vote.

  • jacob

    I don't know of any other states so blatantly either stupid or, in their holding on
    endeavor to power, pacting with the Devil himself as, the writter mentions,
    400,000 Muslims and 300 mosques in OBAMALAND make up for a sizable
    backing…

    Do we need another 9/11 to get rid of this crap ???
    We needed only ONE Pearl Harbor with less deaths than those of the WTC and
    we went headlong into WWII…
    And once again on the subject of their demands for our bending over backwards
    to satisfy their demands…..WHEN IN THE HELL WILL OUR "LEADERS" LEARN
    WE DID NOT SEND FOR THE MUSLIMS BUT WE ALLOWED THEM TO IMMIGRATE
    INTO OUR COUNTRY AND THEREFORE, IT IS EITHER OUR WAY OR THE
    HIGHWAY??????????????
    Just as simple as this and the hell with the "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS" our so
    called "leaders" try to snow us under.
    PERIOD

      I am from Illinois.. I haveonly time for a few quick comments. CAIR is endorsing the usual gang of Idiots. These pols that are corrupt and incompetent ones that have destroyed our state . They chase away law bidding citizens and welcome criminals from other countries. How do they stay in power? The Republican party has abandoned Illinois. Only RINO exist in Illinois and they are no different than the Dems. They stand in line and wait for favors and payoffs from Dem leaders.
      So Repunlican party, can you come down to Ill and organize the many voters who would support you? Or are you afraid that you might win?

      • Stephen_Brady

        I'm from Illinois, also. Though I agree with almost everything you said, there are some non-RINO GOP leaders from the state, including my own Congressman, Adam Kinzinger.

        One thing that happened a long time ago is that the DEMs started moving politically-active … that means DEMs! … residents of places like Cabrini Green and the Robert Thompson homes to critical counties downstate. Their purpose is to make Illinois a one-party political system, forever.

        About a mile from where I live, in LaSalle County, there's a beautiful Section 8 housing complex where there is a two-year waiting list for residency. If you're white, you can apply, but you won't get in. It's their policy to place minorities ahead of all other applicants. Not surprisingly, since these new residents have started moving, they brought their children with them, the crime rate has risen.

        The Soviet Socialist Republic of Illinois …

    Are we being set up? Do the global governments want to reduce the population by flooding the world with murderous thugs? When the coming food shortages and riots begin, Muslim enforcers will be used to kill off the mobs?

    It would seem that if the world wanted to commit suicide, it could find an easier way.

    Our "politicians" are an utter disgrace, but we've known that for a long time. They have obviously been bought off by Muslim money.

    SHAME ON THEM for endangering us all with this violent and barbaric cult. They will have the blood, rape and enslavement of their own grandchildren on their hands.

  • 11bravo

    On top of this nonsense Quinn is running our state into the ground financially. We are right behind Ca, and just ahead of NY in the bankruptcy race to the bottom. I do not know what it will take to get the population to see the democratic madness, maybe bankruptcy or an IL terror attack.

  • sod

    Why FBI end it's outreach to CAIR? They should continue it and tear it apart. Why did the court just shut down the orgs and maybe jail one or two leaders? They should jail all who are part of those orgs! Those judges are traind to separate orgs from individuals and they forgot without individuals, orgs can't become what they are.

    We need to come up with a law (or enforce current ones, like immigration law) to criminalize anyone who have any connection (directly or indirectly) with those terror groups.

    Quinn is kind of very nearsighted and not very smart, Moslem can vote him up and can vote him down as well once they got the power.

    • Anamah

      Many people say FBI is full of pro Islamics and terrorist. I find that outraged!!! However we should think and talk about McCarthyism… it seems it would be necessary to overcome the complex, and do not be afraid to be called as McCarthy if looking for terminate this threat. Mauro are you listen to me? We should take care of this my friend. By the way , thank you for this article!

  • Brujo Blanco

    Like the guy that feeds the crocodiles believing that he will be the last to be eaten. Muslims are working hard and effectively to dominates the world. They may succeed soon if we so not resist.

  • BLJ

    I live in Illinois and Pat Quinn is a joke as gov. He and the rest of the corrupt Democrat machine in this state are just useful idiots for the MB. The MB has made it quite clear what their objectives are.

    The only way to deal with rodents like the MB is to get rid of them. Political correctness in America is the door they are slipping in through. I just hope that if they do succeed one of the first infidel's they take out is Quinn.

  • MaoYing

    In the United States, whenever anybody who is in the public eye says something good about the muslims, they are lying through their teeth because in reality, they know what the muslims are all about. They are just grossly afraid of getting their heads cut-off by OFFENDED muslims if they were to be truthful. These people (who are in the public eye) are the "Muslim Paranoids", and, if they were to tell the truth about the muslims, they would be afraid to leave their homes. These are the people who are in the public eye that are basically afraid of all minorities, due to the fact the minorities in the United States have the green light to become OFFENDED at any time and at any place and for any reason.

  • MaoYing

    Which means, these always scared people who are in the public eye are really really really afraid when any of the minorities in the United States become OFFICIALLY OFFENDED, because when minorities in the United States become OFFICIALLY OFFENDED, Obama gives the "evil-eye" and the Jesse Jacksons and the Al Sharptons of the world come out of the woodwork and scream racism into the waiting microphones of the "government-media complex". Therefore, as all muslims living in the United States qualify as being a minority in the United States, these always scared people who are in the public eye are super-scared of the muslims since muslims cut-off heads when they become OFFICIALLY OFFENDED.

    Everybody (in and out of the public eye) knows what the muslims are really about.

    Despite all of the incriminating facts about Mustapha, he was given a six-week tour of FBI facilities including its main training center and the National Counterterrorism Center in September 2010. “he pushed agents to fully explain everything from the bureau’s use of deadly force policy to radical and ethnic profiling.”

    TREASON is against the law.

    We are in great danger of losing our freedom when FBI and other government agencies tasked with protecting America, betray our nation to America's enemies.

    Why is the U.S. Congress not screaming for a huge investigation of the treason committed against our nation?

    Anti-America; anti-Free World; anti-freedom, the above are enthusiastic supporters of CAIR:

    Council on American-Islamic Relations: "Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth." – Omar Ahmad (CAIR co-founder).

    Suicide bombers follow Quran, concludes Pentagon briefing:

    Addressing a youth session at the 1999 Islamic Association for Palestine's annual convention in Chicago, CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) founder Omar Ahmad praised suicide bombers who "kill themselves for Islam," http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ART

    The enemy is within the gates and they have the full support of those who are supposed to protect and defend this nation. G-D help America.

  • flyingtiger

    I have to add more. Illinois is running out of money, there are massive cuts and layoffs, yet Gov Quinn has money for these idiots. Futhermore they need someone like me who knows more about Islam then the jokers he appointed. To understand what Illinois is like think of what BHO to do to the national economy. It is just Illinois economy on a large scale.

    HOW CAN ONE TRUST HE MUSLIMS WHEN THEIR KORAN SAYS THAT THEY SHOULD KILL ALL OTHER FAITHS ??

    "Some underprivileged women said they came to throw out the former NDP thugs, and vote instead for those who helped them and cared for their problems: the Muslim Brotherhood and Salafis. On the other hand, some social butterflies were voting for the liberals in fear of losing their bikinis and their sunset cocktails if the “Islamists” ruled."

    Read between the lines, you will shape Ahmed Rehab's Characteristic and who he really support.
