White House Partners with Muslim Brotherhood Front

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group with Muslim Brotherhood origins and an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial, recently toured the White House and met with multiple officials. According to the group, Paul Monteiro, Associate Director of the Office of Public Engagement, “cited ISNA as his primary means of outreach to the American Muslim community.”

The Obama administration’s close relationship with ISNA is about more than photo ops and press releases. It is about policy formulation. The input of ISNA is so treasured that the officials coached the organization on how to engage the White House.

On March 8, ISNA President Mohamed Magid joined 10 other religious leaders in a 90-minute conversation with President Obama about immigration reform. Also present was senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, who spoke at ISNA’s 2009 convention. Three days later, Magid took part in a meeting with President Obama where he got “recommendations” in preparation for his Middle East trip, including some from groups with a history of defending Hezbollah.

“Over the past two years, I-along with my White House colleagues-have benefited from the advice of many of your [Magid’s] organizations through our Office of Public Engagement,” said Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough on March 6, 2011 during a speech at the mosque that Magid leads.

ISNA’s White House tour included spending time with George Selim, the White House Director for Community Partnerships, who is an annual speaker at ISNA’s conventions. Selim previously admitted that “hundreds” of meetings have taken place between government officials and the Council on American-Islamic Relations, another group with Brotherhood origins that was designated an unindicted co-conspirator.

The U.S. government stated that ISNA is a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity when it designated it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation. A federal judge upheld  the designation in 2009 because of “ample” evidence linking ISNA to Hamas. A 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo lists ISNA and several of its components among “our organizations and the organizations of our friends,” and a 1988 document says it is part of the Brotherhood “apparatus.”

The FBI had sources inside the U.S. Brotherhood network reporting that ISNA was a front as early as 1987. The source traveled on behalf of ISNA and allied groups and he told the FBI that he is “convinced that this organization has a secret agenda which includes the spread of the Islamic Revolution to all non-Islamic governments in the world which does include the United States.”

The source provided a secret ISNA document in 1988 that “clearly states that ISNA has a political goal to exert influence on political decision making and legislation in North America that is contrary to their certification in their not-for-profit tax returns,” says a declassified FBI memo.

ISNA’s White House tour was part of its Founders Committee meeting. Even if it were true that newer moderate leaders have made ISNA evolve, this event wasn’t about them. It was about those who established it as a Muslim Brotherhood front and it still was warmly received by the White House.

A 2009 Hudson Institute study concluded that “All but one of the individuals on the ISNA founding documents remain active either in ISNA or one of its affiliated organizations,” undermining the position that the ISNA of today is different than the original ISNA.

A good example is Sayyid Syeed. He is an ISNA founder and served as its secretary-general from 1994 to 2006. He was recorded in 2006 stating “our job is to change the constitution of America,” as seen in the Grand Deception documentary. Now, he is ISNA’s point man for interfaith engagement, efforts it often showcases as proof of its moderation. He even spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast in front of 100 evangelical leaders.

As the declassified FBI memos from the 1980s warned, ISNA is using its position as a representative of the Muslim-American community to influence policies and that includes those related to national security.

ISNA President Magid was chosen to serve on the Department of Homeland Security’s Countering Violent Extremism Working Group. Even though he accused elements of the U.S. government of being “intent on dismantling Muslim organizations and bringing them down” in 2004, the Obama administration saw him as a suitable adviser to the Department of Homeland Security.

The outcry over the content of counter-terrorism training materials offered ISNA another opportunity. On February 8, 2012, ISNA and its allies met with the director of the FBI to discuss the review of the training. Afterwards, the FBI said it would consider forming an advisory panel with the meeting participants to help cleanse the training.

Instead of working with anti-Islamist Muslim groups like the American Islamic Leadership Coalition or the LibForAll Foundation, the Obama administration is embracing the larger Muslim Brotherhood legacy groups. The way to engage in the Muslim-American community is by discrediting the Islamist theme, not by giving a platform to those broadcasting it.

    How is this not , at the very least ,sedition and an impeachable offense. Our government is serving humble pie to the fawning media at the front door while the enemies of our very way of life and right to choose same; pour through the back door.It is impossible to me to distinguish between our leadership and our enemies from such an example.Wake up America, vote the bums out of office who hold this double standard.

    • gerry

      They might only wake up the day the black flag is flying on top of the White House to the surprise of everyone!

      • Matt

        They still wouldn't wake up – they'd embrace it as a nice change.

    • Jim

      This would be tantamount to fraternizing with Nazis during WWII!

    • GaryG1

      You are absolutely right. I seriously believe that this administration is just hoping something of a extreme event (10 times worse that 9/11) happens here. He will then declare martial law, suspend the constitution and rule outright. The above actions are very revealing.

    The White House is MORE than partners with the Brotherhood Mafia. They have installed them as chief point men/women. In fact, there isn't a place of influence which they aren't seated. Moreover, between the Islamist-in-Chief, Valerie Jarrett, John Brennan, Chuck Hagel, and Huma Abedin's infiltration & penetration, there is a complete encirclement of America's power centers. NO exaggeration.

    I wish that our White House would stop partnering the Muslim Brotherhood. Even though we all know the reason why, our President is a Muslim, make no bones about it. The brotherhood has, and will continue to have a strong effect on the entire world, and sponsorship by our White House should not be a priority.
    Barack Hussein Obama should remember he is an American first, and foremost, and stop trying to appease Muslims and the nation of Islam.
    We Americans have nothing to be apologetic for Mister President, and don't ever forget it, and it seems you have.

      I used to believe that too..
      But have seen him eating hot dogs (no Muslim I know of would ever do that).. He also drinks alcohol, has his gay 'bath house Barry' history, smokes cigarettes, did drugs (probably still does) etc. etc.
      That being said, what I DO believe is that he has a very unhealthy, emotionally – needy connection for Islam. Since he was raised with 2 Islamic fathers & they & their families basically rejected' or 'abandoned' him a young age, I think it caused some mental / emotional scars that made Obama relate to Muslims the way a battered wife relates to her abusive, unattractive husband. He relates to it in a very codependent way.
      I DO believe his ring has the Islamic inscription but I do not believe Obama speaks fluent Arabic, sets his watch to their time & gets on a prayer rug 3 times per day….
      Religiously he's sort of like an abortion loving Marxist that's an activist for gay marriage in his spare time & also professes to be a dedicated Catholic (only because hr was raised in a Catholic church)…But in Obama's case it's obviously a much more destructive type of dependency.. The emotional connection is definitely there though. Either way, he is owned by Islam.
      In short, I believe Obama is an atheist (the only God he worships is Obama), who just happens to also be a pandering, little baby-man; whooped, wussy dhimmi for that hard core Islamic Jihad.
      It gets him off to worship those who worship Allah, the devil.

      Everyone reading FrontPage is aware of the great deception being perpetrated : But you are correct in stating that most in the USA are in a state of willfull ignorance. The wakeup call will come when our women are being raped and our cities are being firebombed (like in Sweden, Norway and France) by the 7th century barbarions we let in the front gate.

      • defcon 4

        I've had some interesting run-ins w/Christians who have fallen for the lies spewed in muslim outreach sessions at their churches. One of them was informing her of how the nice Iranian muzzies held Jesus sacred. The ignorance and naivete is astounding.

      • kafir4lie

        It won't be like in Sweden, Norway, and France. We're armed and WILL defend ourselves. THAT'S why President Stinky (bo) wants to take them away…..to protect his companions.

        There's NO DOUBT that Stinky is more than willing (and even pleased) to sacrifice an American city if it advances his corrupt agenda.

    The flag of Islam will soon fly over the White House. You in the arrogant corrupted west will come to learn the error of your ways and submit to Allah. your so called democracy has led you to violence, decadence, and atheism. Islam is a truly perfect, peaceful way of life. The only way.

    • kafir4life

      mohamat, your false prophet and inventor of the moon god allah, shat the koran into the Arabian sands after having sex with then later a meal of his favorite pig, or "mom" as he called her. It's a known fact.

      • Malik

        By insulting the name of Allah, Most Holy, you are insulting your own God, since He is Lord of all (even Christians and Jews). To do so is blasphemy, and it will not be tolerated when Islam reaches your shores, soon inshallah!

        • Amishron

          Allah is not the true God. Allah was a false prophet, a liar & a sex offender. So you can after having that special moment with your goat, climb on your camel & head back to Iran or Iraq or one of those other nut job countries.

    • ZionProud

      Sir, if Islam is such a perfect way of life, why are most Islam-majority countries third-world cesspools? Don't get me wrong, run your countries the way you want. But don't you dare try to impose your religion on our Constitution, and don't important your violent fundamentalism over to these shores.

      • Malik

        Any imperfections in Muslim societies are due to men and not the word of the Divine. Dictators supported by the west and the Zionists pervert Islam's true teachings and oppress their people. Plus, you are constantly launching wars on Muslim lands. So please don't complain about the fire when you are setting the flame.

    • Brian

      Malik if the Islamic flag ever flies over the White House, then you will not be able to give your opinion on this website. But don't concern your self because that will never happen.

      • Malik

        That is not true. Did you know that during the Middle Ages when Europe was controlled by Christianity and totally dominated by ignorance, science, philosophy, and art were flourishing in the Islamic Caliphate? Islam has a rich history of debate and intellectual pursuits, but we do not tolerate blasphemy against the Divine or His Final Prophet (PBUH).

        • objectivefactsmatter

          "That is not true. Did you know that during the Middle Ages when Europe was controlled by Christianity and totally dominated by ignorance, science, philosophy, and art were flourishing in the Islamic Caliphate?"

          The caliph colonized land by force and stole vast amounts of wealth including libraries and allowed some educated people to work as intellectual slaves. That is where your "Islamic science" came from? Yes it is.

          "Islam has a rich history of debate and intellectual pursuits…"



          Uh oh…

          "…we do not tolerate blasphemy against the Divine or His Final Prophet (PBUH)."

          In other words, not really.

          Absolutely without logical resolution.

    • Michael

      Please define peaceful. Do you islamic terrorists plan to kill all of us infidels so there won't be any of us left? That still won't make you savages happy because you enjoy killing. Just look at Syria and see that arab is killing arab. 70,000 and counting.

      • Malik

        You will convert willingly when you come to accept the truth of Muhammed's (PBUH) message to the world. The conflict in Syria is being stirred by the western powers and the Zionists, so that blood is on your hands, not Islam's.

      What about the violence of muslimes killing:
      1. ~2.5 million Assyrian and Armenian Christians in and around Turkey and Armenia in the early 20th century?
      2. millions of Hindus in Bangladesh in the 1970's?
      3. tens of thousands of kufrs (mostly Catholic) in E. Timor?
      4. millions of kufrs in the Sudan/Darfur in the late 20th – early 21st century?
      Doesn't that count?

    • Ghostwriter

      Here's my response to Malik. Do you know why Americans have such a negative view of Islam? Primarily because of people like you. You think you have the right to force your religion on Americans. Well,I have news for you,Malik. You DON'T!!!!! You can worship Islam peacefully in this country as long as you respect the rights of others to worship their religion peacefully. We in America have people from your part of the world who tell horror stories of Muslims doing terrible things to them. So please,spare me your lecture of how great Islam is.
      Malik,you're a creep. A totalitarian creep. If you whine and complain about how Americans have such a negative view of Islam,take a look in the mirror. It's people like you and your refusal to condemn acts of terror. Why don't you slither back where you came from,you snake.

      We all KNOW the example mo 'Ham set . , THe Woman he himself raped , Entire villages he himself ordered the slaughter of , the boys he buggered , and the little girls he pedo defiled .

    this is not too difficult to understand. everything obama's said and done shows he' a muslim. obama will do everything he can to promote the muslim indoctrination and take over of america. remember obama's statement, 'i will fundamentally transform america'. obama's transforming america from christianity to muslim and from capitalism to communism.

    Three days ago I read a news piece coming out of the Mideast press which called the "Arab Spring" the "Muslim Awakening". Was the Arab Spring term created by this Administration? Did the Muslim population in the Mideast call it the "Muslim Awakening"? I just want to know if we have been misled yet again by this Administration in DC.

    One must remember muslims are dead in sins and trespasses. They can not disern what is Holy and Acceptable to God.What is so tragic about these ppl. is their complete lack of true peace and joy'. They call 'evil good' and good, evil'.Their entire concept of God is one of hatred and division and strife. They are taught this from birth and can not discern what true Holiness and goodness is. We need to feel pity for them.

    Islam wants to take over like Nazism did in Germany. Read "When a Nation Forgets God" by Erwin Lutzer which explains how Germany gradually…..rolled over for Hitler, inch by inch and handout by handout. Obama wants to control and is close to control of America and he is backed by Muslim Brotherhood. He is an embarrassment to what our County stands for and for our Christian foundation. Yes, his color matters: he is NOT red, white, and blue!! Those colors do not run nor betray our country. Wake up, America! Stand up and be counted and take our country back.

Next, we can go after another enforcement arm, the EPA which as a PINCER movement of jihad against our economy, seeks to eliminate our monetary system and any job or business creation.
