Farm Subsidies for the Muslim Brotherhood

naitThe North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, has been given over $10,000 in farm subsidies since 1998. The payments are just another example of taxpayer money being spent to benefit Islamist groups.

Fox News reports that NAIT is being funded by 34 different government programs and receives subsidies for its two “agricultural” lands that are not being used for agricultural purposes. The report quotes an expert as assessing that NAIT’s activity in this regard is “probably legal,” as shocking as it seems.

NAIT was first identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front by the FBI in the 1980s. A declassified FBI memo documents that a source inside the American Muslim Brotherhood said that NAIT is “under the direction and control of the IKHWAN [Muslim Brotherhood] in the United States has as its ultimate goal political control of all non-Islamic governments in the world.”

Another declassified FBI memo from 1987 states that NAIT is receiving money from Iran, Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries and “many” of its leaders supported the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran. The FBI’s source reported on NAIT’s “support of JIHAD (a holy war) in the U.S.” and “support of terrorism in the U.S. to further the revolution.”

A 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood document says its U.S. operations are “kind of a grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” It lists NAIT as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.”

In 2007, the U.S. government described NAIT as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and labeled it an unindicted co-conspirator in a major terrorism-financing trial. The designation was upheld in 2009 by a federal judge, but he ruled against the previous public disclosure of the designation. This has been repeatedly misreported, including in the Fox News report, as a lifting of the designation.

NAIT says it holds the titles to over 325 properties in 42 states. The Fox report states that NAIT uses Allied Asset Advisors, a company it owns and shares an address with, to buy mosques.

The subsidies to NAIT were sent to the Islamic Center of Central Missouri Mosque. The mosque’s constitution says it is “entrusted” with NAIT and officially affiliated with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Muslim Students Association, two other groups with Muslim Brotherhood origins. Like NAIT, ISNA was also designated an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

According to Fox, the farm subsidies were temporarily halted between 2008 and 2011.

It cannot be argued that NAIT has shed its past extremism. One of its current trustees is Muzammil Siddiqi, a former president of ISNA. In 1996, while president of ISNA, he said Muslims “should participate in the [democratic] system to safeguard our interest and try to bring gradual change…We must not forget that Allah’s rules have to be established in all lands, and all our efforts should lead to that direction.”

In 2001, he even called for the brutal judicial system of Sharia to eventually be established in America. He said that Muslims are not required to follow Sharia’s criminal law when they live in a non-Muslim country, but “Once more people accept Islam, insha’llah, this will lead to the implementation of Sharia in all areas.”

NAIT isn’t the only radical group getting farm subsidies courtesy of American taxpayers. Last year, it was discovered that the Nation of Islam was awarded $103,539 between 2008 and 2011. It also got a $26,357 “community loan” when the Bush Administration was in office.

The funding went to a Nation of Islam charity named Three Years Economic Savings, even though its status with the Illinois Secretary of State is “not in good standing.” The charity also operates under the name of “Muhammad Farms” in Georgia and is listed at Louis Farrakhan’s address.

The Clarion Project also discovered that the U.S. Air Force is paying ISNA for advertisements in its magazine. A spokesperson for the Air Force confirmed to Clarion that $4,800 was spent on two ads to recruit Air Froce chaplains. When Clarion provided the spokesperson with documentation about ISNA’s past and asked whether such payments would continue, the spokesperson said:

“The Islamic Society of North America is one of many religious organizations recognized by the Department of Defense that satisfy the ecclesiastical requirements to endorse qualified religious ministry professionals to serve as chaplains within the Military Departments.”

Another example is the radical mosque, Dar al-Hijrah, that has significant links to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. Its current imam is an open supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood and he preached in favor of violent jihad last year inside a Virginia high school.

In 2010, it was found that the Census Bureau was paying $23,000 per month since 2008 to rent space owned by the mosque. The total contract for the lease was $582,000 through 2010. The discovery prompted members of Congress to demand accountability.

The U.S. Debt Clock has the deficit at over $648 billion and the total debt at over $17 trillion. The Islamist cause is the last thing the U.S. government should be spending money on.

    This is pure government waste paying a terrorist organization in the USA.
    This must be stopped. Monies should be taken back by the IRS.
    They should not have a tax exempt status since they are a terrorist organization.
    Contact all of your Congress Reps and have them stop this immediately.
    This is so wrong on so many levels.
    The USA is based upon Judea/Christian principles and islam can not co-exist.

  • The Facts

    I agree that the Muslim Brotherhood should not be siphoning farm funds for the personal high living standards of Louis Farrakhan, but The Clarion Project is an equally corrupt organization, the Canadian Jewish version of Zundelsite.

      Why did you not post under the name “anonymous”.

      Clarion Project & MEMRI will show videos of Muslims atrocities from around the world.

      You not so much.

      • The Facts

        Clarion Project/Aish Hatorah are nothing more than a Nation of Islam for Canadian Jews. It’s a hate group and part of a real estate swindle. No better than Muslim fundamentalists, really. Why are you asking me about my address? Are you planning something?

          The Clarion Project (formerly Clarion Fund, Inc.) is a New York City-based,independently funded, nonprofit organization founded in 2006 whose stated mission is to “educate people about the inherent dangers of Islamic extremism.

          Is New York city in Canada.

          If you had the good proof you would have linked a leftists investigative journalism article.

            The chief owner/operator/hustler who runs the Clarion Racket is a Canadian-Israeli, not an American. He does this to take advantage of the generous government attitude toward money laundering propaganda outfits disguised as non-profit organizations. Also, probably because in Canada he’d be jailed for it.

            Mark Stein guests host for Rush Limbaugh. There must be some sort of Canadian conspiracy.

            Canada and England do not have the 1st amendment. I have been to Speakers corner. 12 times a year you can say whatever you want. The British have literally pained free speech into a corner.

            I have not been to Clarion in a long time although I have in my bookmark list. I visited it today because of your ministrations and I like the site. Thankyou!

            Do you mean Mark Steyn? Because he is bedfellows with Ezra Levant, so it’s understandable they only need visit with Limbaugh periodically to exchange ways to dumb down political discourse. Toronto already has its own Rush Limbaugh.

            Your posts are pure ad hominene, no facts. Similarly, they’re pretty dumb. So, it’s looks like an interesting combination of stupidity projecting own intolerance out in Orwelian fashion.

            I don’t know who those people are. If Obama is willing to go after De Souza, he is willing to go after Rick Moran or Raphael Shore.

            You allege racketeering and yet not one link.

            What a loser!

            You don’t know who those people are, you just vociferously defend them. That seems plausible.

    And we find the stink of islam has spread even further than we thought. Nothing would be better than the removal of the virus called islam, which has been as war with humanity and has attempted to subjugate society under sharia law

    • Myrtle Linder

      Truly spoken, the stink of Islam it is a creeping, strangling disease. It has crept and slithered throughout the country while GOD’S people slept. There are far too many still asleep, who will do nothing to help in overcoming the evil that is becoming more rooted into our soil. Ignorance I believe is the greatest enemy of our country, through ignorance and fear we are becoming infested with this creeping disease. It may eve look good to the ignorant who do not understand what they are looking at,
      but it is deadly.
      Psalm 60:-6, 9-12

      1. O GOD, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.
      2. Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.
      3. Thou hast shew thy people hard things; thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
      4. Thou hast given a banner tot hem that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of th truth, Selah.
      5. That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.
      6. GD hath spoken in HIS holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
      9 Who will bring me into the strong city: who will lead me into Edom:10. 10. Wilt no thou, O GOD, which hadst cast us off: and thou, O GOD, which didst not go out with our armies?.
      11. Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.
      12. Through GOD we shall do valiantly: for HE it is that shall tread down out enemies.

      Sad to say our enemies are over us, our enemies and ruling us.

    President Obama has proven he is ultra sympathetic to and preference of Islam even at the detriment to Jews, Christians, and all other Americans. It is no wonder that his administration encourages and supports organizations determined to destroy America. The only way to put a stop to this is to change the majority in the Senate and keep it in the House. Then laws can be passed to stop this defeatist practice. Then in 2016 we must elect a true patriot to the White House.
