Muslim Brotherhood, Qatar to Dominate Downtown D.C.
An organization linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and the Qatari government is making a $1 billion real estate investment in the hope that the complex will "become the unequivocal centerpiece of Downtown D.C." Among its features is a Qatari cultural center named Al-Bayt, or "Home."
The 10-acre project, named CityCenterDC, is an initiative of Qatar Foundation International. According to its website, it is a "U.S.-based member of Qatar Foundation" in Doha. It is also its main financier.
In 2008, the chairperson of the Qatar Foundation and the Qatari Emir established the Al-Qaradawi Research Center. Qaradawi is the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and vocal supporter of its Palestinian wing, Hamas. He advocates the doctrine of "gradualism;" an incremental and practical strategy to stealthily advance the sharia agenda around the world.
