Obama's Shout-Out To Muslim Brotherhood Entity
by Ryan Mauro
The 50th annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) featured the usual long list of Islamists that profess to be pro-Sharia and "moderate" in the same breath, but this year the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity had a special speaker: A gleaming President Obama thanking ISNA for its partnership and interfaith campaigns.
In congratulating ISNA on its 50th anniversary, Obama endorsed an event with over 20 Islamist speakers, most of whom teach multiple sessions. The most frequent speaker is Imam Zaid Shakir, who taught 32,000 Muslims over Memorial Day Weekend that the U.S. Constitution is inferior to Sharia Law because it grants equality to Muslims and non-Muslims. He is teaching at least eight sessions.
As originally reported by the Clarion Project, Obama's videotaped address praised the "proud legacy" of ISNA. A confidential source within the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood network informed the FBI as early as 1987 that ISNA is a front whose purpose is to advance the "Islamic Revolution" in America.
