Dar al-Hijrah Imam Affirms MB Sympathies on Facebook
by John Rossomando
For a guy who claims to have nothing to do with the Muslim Brotherhood, Imam Shaker Elsayed dedicates a surprising volume of his Facebook page to the Egyptian Islamist group.
Elsayed, head of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Va., features a picture of deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi – the Brotherhood's candidate in 2011 – across the top of the page. Teenage girls post smaller images of Justin Bieber.
In the corner, Elsayed features a dark green variant of the Brotherhood's symbol of opposition – the R4BIA hand – emblazoned with the Muslim Brotherhood's motto: "Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest aspiration."
