Islamist meaning smooth-talking, suit and tie wearing Muslim actively working to implement sharia law in the U.S. via Media Miss Islamists at the National Prayer Breakfast.
Dr. Benjamin Carson captivated the media’s attention with his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, but another attendee deserved some of the spotlight: Sayyid Syeed, the interfaith liaison for the Islamic Society of North America, who was recorded in 2006 saying, “[O]ur job is to change the constitution of America.”
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) originates in the Muslim Brotherhood, but has been embraced on a bi-partisan basis. FBI sources reporting back to the mid-1980s identified it as a Brotherhood front. In 2007, the U.S. government designated ISNA an unindicted co-conspirator in the terrorism-financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation, listing it as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity.
A 1991 Brotherhood memo, which describes its “work in America as a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within,” likewise mentions ISNA and several of its components as its fronts. In 2009, a federal judge upheld ISNA’s designation as an unindicted co-conspirator because of “ample” evidence linking it to Hamas.
Sayyid Syeed, ISNA’s Secretary-General from 1994 to 2006, is now the Director of ISNA’s Office of Interfaith and Community Alliances. New footage has been released of him stating in 2006, “[O]ur job is to the change the constitution of America,” as seen in the film, The Grand Deception.
Syeed and ISNA were invited to the National Prayer Breakfast at which President Obama spoke. Syeed also addressed about 100 evangelical leaders during the Middle East/North Africa Prayer Breakfast. Dr. Mohamed Elsanousi, ISNA’s Director of Community Outreach, also spoke.
The National Prayer Breakfast was organized by the Fellowship Foundation and hosted by co-chairs Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR) and Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL). Other speakers included Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Rep. Janice Hahn (D-CA) and, ironically, Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX), one of the brave congressmen who wrote letters asking for investigations into the relationships between ISNA and other Brotherhood legacy groups and the U.S. government.
Shortly after the National Prayer Breakfast, Syeed was the keynote speaker at the annual legislative conference of the Joint Religious Legislative Coalition in St. Paul, Minnesota. It was attended by over 700 faith community leaders, and the Coalition includes the Minnesota Council of Churches, Minnesota Catholic Conferences, Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Islamic Center of Minnesota. He also spoke at the University of St. Thomas’s Muslim Christian Dialogue Center.
Suckers. Read it all and watch The Truth About Interfaith Dialogues.
