Herman Cain Apologizes … to the Muslim Brotherhood

Thanks to Ryan Mauro for not letting this slip by. via Pajamas Media » Herman Cain Apologizes … to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has been under fire for saying communities should be able to stop the construction of mosques. So he apologized, following a visit to a mosque led by Imam Mohamed Magid, the president of Muslim Brotherhood branch the Islamic Society of North America.

On Wednesday, Cain took a tour of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society of Sterling, Virginia. ADAMS Board Member Robert Marro said:

I think that the meeting today has changed his mind 100 percent. From the tenor of the conversation, I can’t see him repeating such things. … [The apology was] as close to a heartfelt and sincere apology that I’ve seen from any politician anywhere.

A statement from Cain following the meeting read:

While I stand by my opposition to the interference of Sharia law into the American legal system … I am truly sorry for any comments that may have betrayed my commitment to the U.S. Constitution and the freedom of religion guaranteed by it. Muslims, like all Americans, have the right to practice their faith freely and peacefully.

If Cain opposes Sharia-based governance, then he picked the wrong group to reach out to.

As noted above, Mohamed Magid is also president of the Islamic Society of America (ISNA). The group says it “rejects all acts of terrorism, including those perpetrated by Hamas, Hizbullah and any other group that claims Islam as their inspiration.” However, ISNA was listed as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land Foundation trial. The HLF had been found guilty of being a front for Hamas set up by the Muslim Brotherhood.

ISNA, likewise, is listed in the Muslim Brotherhood’s own documents as one of its fronts.

ISNA has fought a losing battle to have this label removed. In July 2009, a judge ruled that the government had “ample evidence” connecting ISNA to the Holy Land Foundation, Hamas, and the Islamic Association of Palestine, another Brotherhood front shut down for financing terrorism. For example, HLF received checks to the “Palestinian mujahideen,” a reference to Hamas’ military wing, from ISNA accounts. As far back as the 1980s, an FBI document was warning:

[ISNA events] provided opportunities for the extreme fundamentalist Muslims to meet with their supporters.

ADAMS itself is not free of terror ties. In March 2002, ADAMS had its offices raided as part of a terrorism investigation.

Magid previously served as an advisor to the Sterling Charitable Gift Fund, which also had its offices raided.

The former president of ISNA from 1997 to 2000, Muzammil Siddiqi, supports the Sharia-based governance Cain declared his opposition to. In October 2008, he proclaimed at a rally:

America has to learn that because if you remain on the side of injustice, the wrath of God will come.

In 2001, he said:

Once more people accept Islam, insha’allah, this will lead to the implementation of Sharia in all areas.

Read it all.

  1. Islam is no friend to the Republic….and the left continues to demonize those who oppose islam….silencing those few voices who defend the nation.

  2. My, my, my Mr. Cain. It seems as if having a spine is a passing fancy. You my friend WERE an incredible longshot. Today marks the last day that the last nail has entered your pollitical coffin as it were….. i hope you business success, but please remove yourself from politics. At least until you figure out what you stand for and can state it clearly and concisely…

  3. And I was hoping H. Cain would be the candidate to take on the tough political task of being the national candidate to articulate exactly why sharia is utterly incompatible with the US Constitution … opportunity lost.

    This incompatibility *will* come to a head at some point in history. Hopefully on the Constitution’s terms and not sharia’s terms.

    “Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive”

  4. Someone please take Herman’s head out of his ass. It looks like our calph in chief has put some pressure on Mr. Cain.

  5. you know I have freedom of speech these people are in my country trying to destroy my way of live, what you want me to do kiss their ass. If I was in the middle east where they are from they would be trying kill me and you also so now you want me to be politically correct I think I am.

  6. I apologize that you are here to destroy us. There I apologized.

    Give me a break. America is waking up, and senators are now saying that Islam is the greatest threat to America now.

    Keep it up guys! We are making a dent in the politically correct Armour .

  7. Going back to our fore-fathers time the church of England and the Govt were one. There was no separation between the two. Neither a Govt or a religion shall rule together.
    Islam is their religion and their govt.is Islam. The law of Islam is Sharia and Islam is their govt. They are one-in-the-same.One can not separate church and state when Islam is concerned.
    This is what the people of Tennessee are concerned about. having a mosque there would change the neighborhood in several ways.
    We are a Christian nation, contrary to what Obama said, and most do not want Sharia Law to replace our laws. We are tolerant of those that wish to practice their religion unlike Islam.

  8. I don’t care if its rude or not I practice freedom of speech I am an american I don’t flip flop like a fish out of water like Cain or all of Islam

  9. You should hear Michele Bachmann speak on Islam – SHE GETS IT!! She knows all about taqiyya and abbrogation and is all for keeping Shari’ah out of America. She and WEST would be an AWESOME ticket… Paul is clueless about Islam and Pawlenty had a Shari’ah compliant mortgage program for 18 months AFTER he got caught doing it… Romney doesn’t think there is ANY shari’ah in America… apparently he has no clue that 23 states have used shari’ah in 50 cases in the US.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
