How the Muslim Brotherhood Operates in Tennessee (part 7 of 8)

via Newsletter #169 – How Muslim Brotherhood Operates in Tennessee (part 7 of 8)

The Muslim Brotherhood was founded for the purpose of rejecting Western civilization and replacing it with global sharia law by restoring the Caliphate.

Tennessee’s Islamists select imams and speakers to reinforce this objective and influence younger Muslims.

Imams educated at Al Ahzar University in Egypt

Al Ahzar University is credited with starting the Islamist movement by training Islamic radicals tied to Muslim Brotherhood and stands for the propagation of Islam and sharia as a complete way of life. Considered the preeminent teaching center of sharia law Al Ahzar authenticated the English translation of “The Reliance of the Traveller, The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law.”

Excerpts from “Reliance of the Traveller” include:

  • “the Objectives of Jihad” 8 – … wars against Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians if they don’t accept the invitation to Islam or they can pay the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya)
  • “Giving Zakat to Deserving Recipients” 17 (zakat is Islamic charity)- those fighting for Allah [ie, “volunteers for jihad”]
  • “Dealing with a rebellious wife” 12(4)(c) – a husband may hit his wife…
  • Mohammed Ahmed, former imam at the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN). Ahmed told attendees at the June 2011 meeting of the Religion Communicators Councilthat he supported the Egyptian police forced virginity tests performed on female protesters in Tahrir Square.  The imam explained:  “Why? It’s a very interesting fact that the police giving you a heads up, ‘oh, those people are not virgin’.  That’s mean they are not good people”
  • Osama Bahloul, imam at the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro (ICM). He has a degree in Dawa (prosletyzing for Islam; his thesis was the establishment of a Dawa curriculum aimed at secularists, atheists, Christians, Jews, and Muslims.) The ICM hosted the Muslim Brotherhood unindicted co-conspirators CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad and Jamal Badawi.

Imams educated at University of Medinah, Saudi Arabia

University of Medinah in Saudi Arabia is associated with the fundamentalist Salafi branch of Sunni Islam. Salafists want to practice Islam in its most original, purest and “authentic” form without relying on cultural practices or clerical interpretations.

  • AbdulRahman ibn Esa Chao, imam at the Islamic Center of Tennessee. Reported to have graduated from the University of Medinah at age 21, the youngest graduate of record. He also studied at the IIASA (Institute of Islamic and Arabic Sciences in America), located in Virginia, funded by Saudi Arabia. The Foundation for Defense of Democracies says, “[IIASA] is the largest source of Saudi hate literature in the Washington area.
  • Abdulhakim Mohammed, imam at the ICN from 1999-2007 during which time he helped them set up the private Islamic school the Nashville International Academy. Born in Yemen he spent much of his early childhood in Detroit, Michigan. He spent approximately eight years at the University of Madinah in Saudi Arabia, then returned to Yemen to work managing Islamic schools and other educational programs. Prior to the ICN, he was the imam at the Islamic Center in Ann Arbor and then at the radical Brooklyn Al Farooq mosque, aka, the “al-Qaeda mosque.” This is also the mosque attended by the “blind sheik” who was convicted in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
  • Yasir Qadhi, resident scholar at the Memphis Islamic Center and Dean of Academic Affairs, al Maghrib Institute. His media company used to sell recordings by al-Qaeda terrorist Anwar Awalaki. al Maghrib students include the Christmas Day bomber and convicted terrorist Daniel Maldonado. Qadhi is an International speaker and Holocaust denier, who says “we are loyal to our countries insofar as it does not interfere with our religion of Islam.” embed videos

Qadhi calls Christians and Jews spiritually “filthy.”

  • Rafiq Mahdi, (formerly known as William Henderson), is a black American convert to Islam who after leaving the Nation of Islam trained in Saudi Arabia. He is considered the “unofficial imam of Knoxville” where he helped establish the Annoor Mosque. Prior to Knoxville, he led the Masjid Al-Iman in Florida, described as a “small fundamentalist mosque” which was the spiritual home of the “dirty bomber” Jose Padilla. Padilla had ties to al Qaeda and was convicted of planning a jihad attack in 2002.

Mahdi helped fundraise for the KindHearts Foundation which was shut down under suspicion of raising money for Hamas.

Imams trained at other Saudi institutions

  • Abdullah Al Ansar, first imam at the Islamic Center of Tennessee. Graduate of the Muhammad ibn Saud Islamic University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Has over 14 years of experience in dawa. Prior to ICTN he was the imam at Detroit’s Masjid Al Tawheed whose website (prior to scrubbing) published links to jihadi lectures in the UK. Al Ansari preached the following:

“He [Allah] told us to fight the Jews and Christians. Fight them until they give jizya.  They give this protective tax from their hands and they are humiliated and subdued.” (embed video)

  • Abdelrahman Murphy, former faculty member at Knoxville private Islamic School Annoor Academy, Youth Leader for Roots program and mentor to MSA at UT Knoxville. He completed the Imam Certificate Program in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. Currently, Murphy runs the youth program at the Islamic Center of Boston, encouraging the young people to “be like Mohammed.”

Islamist Muslim Political Action Groups

American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC)

AMAC was organized in late 2011 with the support of the Commissioner of Tennessee’s Department of Safety and Homeland Security and assistance of department personnel.

Organizing state level councils such as AMAC is a step taken right out of the Muslim Brotherhood plan. Coincidentally the 2006 conference that launched this action step included three organizations, one of which is among the 29 named organizations in the Muslim Brotherhood plan. All three of the conference participants were part of a larger coalition that included other mainstream Muslim Brotherhood groups CAIR, ISNA and MAS.

AMAC board members have spoken favorably about Muslim Brotherhood organizations. Sabina Mohyuddin an AMAC organizer and board member, announced in an AMAC presentation that several Muslim Brotherhood organizations “help American Muslims stay true to their religious values while being uniquely American.” (embed video)

AMAC board members Zak Mohyuddin (current) and Mwafaq Aljabarry (former) each ran for political office in August 2014 primaries. Mohyuddin ran as a Democrat and Aljabarry as a Republican. Both lost.

In 2012, AMAC announced that it had become an affiliate of the Islamic Networks Group (ING), which itself is heavily connected to the mainstream Muslim Brotherhood collective of CAIR, ICNA, MAS, and ISNA. Taking its cue from the Brotherhood’s directive, AMAC planned to use ING’s prepared scripts to spread its reach to “middle and high schools, universities, faith-based and community organizations, and other venues. We seek to educate about American Muslims and their faith as a means of promoting religious literacy, mutual respect, and understanding.”

AMAC board members have also followed the Brotherhood’s plan strategy of forming coalitions. AMAC organizer and board member Drost Kokoye has concentrated her efforts in working with the pro-HAMAS group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), illegal immigration advocates and pretty much any group that has a “I hate America” agenda.

AMAC leadership openly supports Obama’s unConstitutional actions regarding illegal immigration.

Immediately prior to organizing and chairing AMAC, Daoud Abudiab teamed up with Awadh Binhazim, (the self-appointed Vanderbilt Muslim chaplain), on November 3, 2011 to educate the Williamson County Democrats about Islam.

Abudiab and his AMAC co-chair also joined the board of the TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) to solidify the cross-pollination of these groups. In 2013 Abudiab left the AMAC board, but as of this writing, continues to serve as the president of the TIRRC board. In 2014 he started an interfaith organization, the Faith & Culture Center which is heavily focused on “Our Muslim Neighbor” emulating ISNA’s interfaith outreach tactics.

American Center for Outreach (ACO)

AMAC and ACO were started at the same time by the same people. Several AMAC members served on both organizations. They hired Remziya Suleyman to operate ACO and lobby for Muslims in Tennessee. Suleyman is credited with solidifying Muslim Brotherhood CAIR’s presence in Tennessee and affirmatively linking the Muslim voice in Tennessee with Muslim Brotherhood ideology and organization representatives.

In the fall of 2014, Paul “Iesa” Galloway took over the operation of ACO and Suleyman moved to Washington to work for the Kurdish Regional Government office there. Galloway is a professional spin doctor, an asset to an organization forced to “massage” facts to fit their victim narrative which has characterized the ACO since its start.

Shortly after converting to Islam, Galloway founded and directed the Muslim Brotherhood’s CAIR office in Houston for four years. He was the PR director for Mohamed Elibiary’s Lone Star Intelligence company and a board member on Elibiary’s Freedom and Justice Foundation Board serving alongside former ICN imam Abdulhakim Mohamed who was a board member at the same time.

Mohamed Elibiary has a long and public relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood. He admits having a relationship with an official of the Holy Land Foundation who is now in jail for helping to finance Hamas. Elibiary also served on the Board of Muslim Brotherhood’s CAIR Dallas-Forth Worth chapter.

Galloway coordinated the 2012 Texas Dawa Conference, connecting with conference speakers from Tennessee, Remziya Suleyman, Memphis imam Yasir Qadhi and Danish Siddiqi. In 2009 Qadhi lectured at the mosque attended by the Boston marathon bombers. His comments included “replacing U.S. democracy with Islamic rule” and he called Christians ‘filthy’ polytheists whose ‘life and prosperity … holds no value in the state of Jihad.’”

There is a significant degree of cross-pollination between ACO, AMAC and the TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC). All three organizations have located their offices in the Conexion Americas building in Nashville.

TIRRC runs amnesty workshops and employs a DACA Coordinator. DACA is Obama’s 2012 amnesty for children brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents who also entered illegally.)

Tennessee: Nashville schools (like Memphis) to begin teaching Arabic (updated)

via Metro Schools to offer Arabic classes in fall. h/t RRW who writes:

And, in case you didn’t know, Arabic is the number one language of refugees entering the US right now.


Starting this fall, Metro Nashville Public Schools will begin offering Arabic language classes.

The creation of the classes expands on the district’s foreign language offerings of Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, French, Latin and German, according to a press release from the district.

All of the Arabic classes will be offered in grades 7-12 and are being installed in six South Nashville schools. The area is one of the most diverse in the district and includes a high number of English Language Learners. The six schools are:

•Antioch High School and Margaret Allen Middle Prep

•Cane Ridge High School and Antioch Middle Prep

•Overton High School and McMurray Middle Prep

“This latest expansion strengthens our district’s dedication to foreign language instruction and diverse course offerings outside of the core academics,” said Director of Schools Jesse Register in the release. “We are very excited about starting this program. It gives our schools yet another unique and attractive feature for families, and helps meet the demands of our increasingly diverse city.”

The six schools were chosen based on an audit of students’ home languages. Each of the schools has students that speak Arabic as their primary language, and beginning Arabic and heritage Arabic classes will be taught for the varying abilities of students.

Heritage Arabic classes are meant to build off the skills students in the districts already have, said Chief Academic Officer Jay Steele in the release.

“We believe it will help them be more engaged in school as a whole and also help them stay connected to their native culture,” he said.

The district is recruiting and working to hire certified teachers to teach the classes. Once hired, those teachers will then design the curriculum.


And that can only mean bad news because it’s never about the language. It’s simply another opportunity to for dawah. To promote the hijab. To visit the mosque. To glorify Islam yet claim the inevitable Islamic proselytizing is not religious but cultural. And teaching Arabic is needed to demystify the culture, as they are in Memphis.

Beware.


TCPJ Action Alert – Tell Metro Schools Arabic Classes Not Needed

Please contact the following Metro School officials and school board members and question the legitimacy of this decision:

  • is it the school district’s responsibility to “keep children connected to their native culture?”
  • will classes be permitted to use the Koran as a way to teach Arabic?
  • will students be taught the Shahada as a way to practice their Arabic and just by coincidence, be able to convert?
  • how will this be monitored? Public schools in Maryland that have permitted Islamic prayer time in schools have enabled non-Muslim students to convert without parental knowledge
  • does it make sense to teach more Arabic to students coming from homes where Arabic is spoken as opposed to working to make them proficient in English?

Right under our nose – the Muslim Brotherhood Affiliates and Allies in Tennessee

MSA (Muslim Students Association) [also read CS’s The growing list of Muslim Student Association (MSA) terrorists]

Chapters are listed at the following Tennessee colleges and universities: UT Knoxville, UT Martin, UT Chattanooga, University of Memphis, ETSU, MTSU, TSU, Tennessee Tech, Nashville State, Rhodes College, Vanderbilt, Sewanee and even MLK magnet high school in Nashville.

Should public money be used to fund these Muslim Brotherhood MSAs?

IIIT (International Institute for Islamic Thought)

The IIIT not only seeks to influence higher education, but also teachers and textbooks. They published textbooks written by Susan Douglas, a “principal researcher and writer” for the Council on Islamic Education (CIE) and on the editorial board for ISNA’s publication “Islamic Horizons.”

Douglass is most noted for drafting standards for teaching about religion in public schools; she co-authored the “Teacher’s Guide to Religion in the Public Schools” which has been adopted and published by the Freedom Forum in Nashville. Douglas trains teachers how to teach about Islam using curriculum guides she creates. CIE influences textbooks by helping to write state standards.

CIE is credited with influencing textbook publishers to omit “anything that would enable students to understand conflicts between Islamic fundamentalism and Western liberalism.” In 1992 CIE sponsored an “Islam in textbooks conference” for publishing company representatives and their writers which according to the CIE website reported that this “marked the beginning of a sustained relationship between CIE and K-12 publishers.”

The same funders that helped establish CIE also helped establish CAIR and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).

The Muslim Brotherhood affiliates are so embedded in our educational institutions that Dr. Ron Messier, former professor at Vanderbilt University and now MTSU Director of International Outreach, spoke at IIIT in 2011.

His co-panelist Yaqub Mirza was publicly linked to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other questionable involvement with al-Qaeda financiers. His other co-panelist, Louay Safi was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the terrorism trial of Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s, just deported, Sami al-Arian.

In 2012, two of IIIT’s leaders posted a picture of themselves at a meeting with then President of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi. The IIIT website (picture now removed) says that Morsi, “welcomed the participation of IIIT in the reform [sic] of higher education in Egypt.”

Examples of Tennessee properties owned by Muslim Brotherhood front groups

Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN)

The warranty deed shows that ICN shares a P.O. Box address with the unindicted co-conspirator ISNA.

Believing that their numbers were sufficient to start impacting the community, the ICN’s March 1998 newsletter tells Nashville’s Muslims that “[t]he time is right for us to reach beyond the boundaries of the Masjid, to the fullest extent possible, and attempt to establish Islamic principles into the society where our children will be raised. We must attempt to influence the future direction of this society….” (emphasis added)

The same newsletter also solicited money for the Holy Land Foundation.

Before leaving the ICN to form another mosque, former CAIR chapter leader Awadh Binhazim was on the ICN board from 1999 – 2007. Binhazim conducted his dawa (proselytizing) through his Olive Tree Education project which promoted on-line writings by al-Qaeda’s Anwar Awlaki. Binhazim worked through the MSA at Tennessee State University (TSU), and served as a self-appointed Muslim chaplain at Vanderbilt University. During his tenure in this position, he publicly admitted that Islamic law mandates capital punishment for homosexuality and that “as a Muslim he does not have a choice of whether to accept or reject what Islam teaches.”

Excerpts from some of Binhazim’s lectures are included in the “Losing Our Sons” documentary.

“Losing Our Sons” documents the radicalization of Memphis native Carlos Bledsoe who attended TSU and the ICN. He converted to Islam, taking the same name as the ICN imam, Abdulhakim Mohammed who is believed to have been mentor. Carlos went to Yemen to supposedly teach English at a school. It was discovered that Carlos attended a Yemeni school. Carlos returned to the U.S. as a jihadi who killed Pvt. Andrew Long at the Little Rock Army Recruiting Center.

Masjid al-Salam Mosque, aka, The Muslim Society of Memphis

The mosque’s warranty deed shows that the property is owned by NAIT (North American Islamic Trust), another Muslim Brotherhood front group named in the 1991 Muslim Brotherhood

memorandum. NAIT is an affiliate of Muslim Brotherhood ISNA. NAIT also owns many other properties in Memphis along with properties surrounding the property that contains the mosque.

“NAIT is reportedly largely funded from overseas, particularly from Saudi Arabia.” NAIT is reported to hold the deeds to well over 25% of the mosques and Islamic centers in the U.S. including the Bridgeview mosque near Chicago. The Chicago Tribune did an expose about how this mosque became dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood, including a prayer leader partially paid for by the Saudi government.

How the Muslim Brotherhood Operates in Tennessee (Part 3 of 8)

via Tennessee Council for Political Justice.

Twenty-nine (29) organizations (see below), were named in the plan that were either created by [Muslim] Brotherhood members or were aligned with the [Muslim] Brotherhood’s goals. Named groups include, the MSA (Muslim Students Association), NAIT (North American Islamic Trust), ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America), and the IAP (Islamic Association of Palestine).

Five HLF executives were convicted for using the Islamic charity to funnel money to Hamas. Also, CAIR, ISNA, NAIT and others were named as unindicted co-conspirators. Obama’s Department of Justice has obstructed more prosecutions.

In 2008, CAIR, ISNA and NAIT tried to have their names removed from the unindicted co-conspirator list and their ties to HAMAS removed from the trial record. Instead, the federal judge confirmed the designations and ruled that the government had introduced extensive evidence tying them to HAMAS:

[t]he government “produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA and NAIT with HLF, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), and with HAMAS.”

Despite the convictions and unindicted co-conspirator designations, these organizations, complicit with government leadership at both the federal and state levels, have openly expanded their influence operations across U.S. political, religious and community institutions, including in Tennessee.

Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. operates through a network of affiliated and supporting organizations

Akram, drafter of the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan noted in the document, that “[t]he heart and the core” of the plan was dependent on establishing organizations of all kinds, “…economic, social, media, scouting, professional and even the military ones. We must say that we are in a country which understands no language other than the language of the organizations, and one which does not respect or give weight to any group without effective, functional and strong organization.”

In 1962 the first national Islamic organization was the MSA which was started by foreign students studying in U.S. colleges who had been Brotherhood members in their own countries. The MSA is named in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Explanatory Memo. Today, there are approximately 600 MSA college chapters. Any number of Islamic terrorists have been members and leaders of their MSAs including, Anwar al-Awlaki (al-Qaeda), Ziyad Khaleel (al-Qaeda’s procurement agent in the US), Abu Mansoor al-Amriki (now spokesman for al-Qaeda in Somalia), Wa’el Hamza Julaidan (co-founder of al-Qaeda).

In Tennessee, many of the Islamist agitators like Kasar Abdullah and Lema Sbenaty have been involved with their campus MSA. Tennessee American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) board member Saleh Sbenaty (Lema’s father) was the MSA faculty advisor at MTSU.

These groups bring in Islamist leaders like Zaid Shakir to influence these young people, telling them that,

“If Islam is the basis, the kafir [non-believer] won’t be equal with the Muslim. The Christian or the Jew will be a dhimmi [second-class citizen]. They won’t be equal with the Muslim.”

In “Raising a Jihadi Generation,” John Guandolo, former FBI agent and creator of the FBI’s first Counterterrorism Training/Education Program focused specifically on the Muslim Brotherhood, says that, “[f]rom the MSA nearly every major Islamic organization in North America was formed.”

For example, the Brotherhood works to influence higher education through its front group, the IIIT (International Institute for Islamic Thought) , number 28 on the Explanatory Memo’s list.

Sayyid Syeed was IIIT’s Director of Academic Outreach but now heads ISNA’s Interfaith outreach operations. ISNA is a named unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF prosecution and number one on the Explanatory Memo’s list.

In Tennessee, for example, Rafiq Mahdi, the “unofficial imam” for the Muslim Community of Knoxville, works as the Director of Community Development for ICNA Relief USA, the charity arm of ICNA named in the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan.

The MSA, ISNA, NAIT, ICNA, IIIT, CAIR and others, through words, deeds, and other affiliated organizations, are operating and spreading their influence in Tennessee.

What is the Muslim Brotherhood and its history?

The Muslim Brotherhood is a shadowy political movement whose ideology includes goals to restore the Caliphate and institute global sharia law.

Founded in Egypt in 1928 by Hasan al-Banna, the Muslim Brotherhood was a response to the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and the loss of the Caliphate. Al-Banna wanted to revive Islamic fundamentalism and global sharia law. He said:

“It is a duty incumbent on every Muslim to struggle towards the aim of making every people Muslim and the whole world Islamic, so that the banner of Islam can flutter over the earth..”

He also said, “It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

Over 70 years later, both statements were echoed by CAIR’s co-founder, Omar Ahmad who in 1998 said that, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran … should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

In 2003, CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said that if Muslims ever became a majority in the United States, they would likely try to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic law because they believe it is superior to man-made law.

Memphis imam Yasir Qadhi teaches (watch video): “It is not my right to legislate or your right to legislate. No Supreme Court, no system of government, no democracy where they vote. Can you believe it, a group of people coming together and voting and the majority vote will be the law of the land? What gives you the right to prohibit something or allow something?”

Statements from al-Banna to Hooper to Qadhi, reflect the Brotherhood’s credo:

“Allah is our objective; the Prophet is our leader; the Quran is our law; Jihad is our way; dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

By 1948 the Muslim Brotherhood was banned in Egypt but returned to political power when their candidate Mohammed Morsi, was elected president in 2012. During a campaign speech, Morsi led a public recitation of the Brotherhood’s credo.

Obama, along with Republicans like Sen. John McCain, made a commitment to work with Morsi.

Once Morsi was in office, the Muslim Brotherhood began instituting sharia law. Mass riots erupted in response. In July 2013, Morsi was removed through a military coup. The new government designated the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

Remziya Suleyman, former director of the Tennessee Muslim American Center for Outreach (ACO), and co-Islamist, Mohammed Elibiary, former appointee to the DHS Homeland Security Advisory Council publicly condemned the ouster of Morsi. Around the same time, Elibiary tweeted about the “inevitable return of the Caliphate,” a message subsequently used by ISIS in its recruiting efforts.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia have designated the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. The UAE’s list includes Muslim Brotherhood affiliates CAIR and the Muslim American Society (MAS). In 2012 a Brotherhood leader acknowledged in U.S. federal court that MAS was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Tennessee even has a MAS chapter leader.

Qatar also agreed to expel Muslim Brotherhood leaders. While those who best understand the DNA of the Muslim Brotherhood work to eliminate it, the U.S. State Department is pressuring the UAE to remove CAIR and MAS from the terrorist list.

In January 2015, the U.S. State Department hosted an Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood delegation one of whom posted a picture of himself making the “R4BIA,” hand sign used by pro-Morsi (ie, Muslim Brotherhood) supporters. The meeting was reported to be about the Muslim Brotherhood’s efforts to regain power in Egypt. The State Department only admitted to this meeting after being exposed by The Free Beacon.

In February Obama met privately at the White House with U.S. Islamist leaders including those affiliated with known Muslim Brotherhood groups that have ties to HAMAS.

via Tennesse Council 4 Political Justice.

Introduction

There are Islamists living in Tennessee who are top tier leaders in ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), one of the unindicted co-conspirator organizations named by the Muslim Brotherhood in its plan for the U.S.. This plan was exposed during the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing prosecution.

There are Islamists living in Tennessee who are individually named in that same Muslim Brotherhood plan, and Islamists who have served in executive positions with Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR and the MAS (Muslim American Society), both designated as terrorist organizations by the UAE.

CAIR’s executive director who visits Tennessee has publicly voiced his support for HAMAS. CAIR has inserted itself multiple times in Tennessee events, even trying to prevent Tennessee citizens from exercising First Amendment rights to free speech and free assembly. In 2013 CAIR’s Michigan director was brought to Nashville to train Muslim high school students in political activism. Currently CAIR has a de facto office in Nashville since its former CAIR-Houston director registered as a Tennessee lobbyist and is running the American Center for Outreach (ACO).

cair-mbhood-links

A former CAIR intern worked with the UT Knoxville MSA (Muslim Students Association) and was on the faculty of the private Islamic school in Knoxville. Another former CAIR chapter leader was the self-appointed Vanderbilt University Muslim chaplain who confirmed during a public event that he must abide by Islamic law that commands death for homosexuals.

Guest speakers known to be radical Islamists have been brought to Tennessee with messages like “Islam is better than democracy” and that under sharia law “the kafir [non-Muslims] won’t be equal with the Muslim.”

Deeds to some Tennessee mosques list Muslim Brotherhood front groups. Imams preaching inside the mosques are trained in Saudi Arabia where the strictest form of sharia law is practiced or are trained at Al-Azhar University in Egypt, which is credited with starting the Islamic Muslim Brotherhood movement, promoting Islam and sharia as a complete way of life.

Tennessee even has a mosque whose mortgage is held by an organization working on behalf of the Iranian government.

Tennessee is home to the leader of an Islamic organization which shares many attributes with the Holy Land Foundation that was shut down by the U.S. government for providing material support to HAMAS.

***************

Our elected and appointed political leaders should be required to receive complete and factual information about the Muslim Brotherhood and its front groups operating in Tennessee because these groups represent the politics of Islam. These groups and individuals should be exposed.

Our citizens should also know these facts. Watch for the next seven installments in this series.
