The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is a Muslim Brotherhood group in America. It shares the same ideals as the Muslim Brotherhood that birthed Al-Qaeda and the same Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt that wants strict enforcement of sharia law. The only difference is its stealth as it has to adapt to western culture in order to make greater gains. Its members want you to believe that they represent a different kind of Islam; they do not.
This reality is what should outrage Americans over this video message from Barack Obama, in which he congratulates ISNA on its 50th Annual Convention. In this video message, Obama also mentions ISNA President Mohammed Magid.
Incidentally, and as we reported here, Magid’s ISNA convened a ‘broad-based working group’ to determine how best to handle the situation in Syria. Present were leaders of various other Muslim Brotherhood groups in America, to include CAIR, MPAC, and ICNA, along with Magid of the ISNA.
Here is a description of the purpose of the meeting, taken from the ISNA website:
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) co-convenes a broad-based working group to discuss the crisis in Syria and how to support the Syrian people through efforts to advance human rights and democracy in Syria. At least 50 people were in attendance from approximately 40 American organizations including Muslim, interfaith, and Syrian American groups.
A planning committee of national Muslim organizations, including ISNA, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and the Islamic Circle of North America, convened the meeting. ISNA has long been greatly concerned about the condition of the Syrian people, the crimes against humanity being committed there, and the need for greater relief efforts.
The working group discussed ways to expand into a wider network of organizations in order to increase public awareness about the Syrian situation. The discussion included an informative presentation by a renowned polling firm regarding American public perception on the conflict.
As you might guess, all of these groups support the Muslim Brotherhood rebels in Syria.
