U.S. Professors Participate in Brotherhood-Linked Program
The International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity based in Herndon, Virginia, held a summer internship for selected students that included instruction from U.S. professors. The Clarion Project has previously reported on how the Brotherhood front has gotten inside American academia.
A 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo identifies IIIT as one of its fronts. The memo tells the clandestine Brotherhood network to think of their "work in America as a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within…"
These linkages remain. On September 24, 2012, two IIIT leaders, Abubaker Al-Shingheti and Jamal Barzinji met with then-President of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi, in New York. He was the Muslim Brotherhood's official candidate. The IIIT website has a photo of them together with the caption, "[Morsi] welcomed the participation of IIIT in the rerform [sic] of higher education in Egypt."
