Sharia on Tour
by Ryan Mauro
If you live near Baltimore, Houston, Atlanta or Rochester and want to see a Sharia-promoting show, you're in luck. The Islamic Circle of North America and Muslim American Society, two groups linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, have announced four conferences featuring rock stars of the Islamist movement.
ICNA is identified as one of "our organizations and the organizations of our friends" in a once-secret 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo. It explicitly states the network's "work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within…"
The organization is a derivative of the Jamaat-e-Islami group in Pakistan. One of ICNA's former leaders, Ashrafuzzaman Khan, was recently sentenced to death in Bangladesh for his involvement in Jamaat-e-Islami's war crimes. Unsurprisingly, ICNA is upset at the ruling.
