"Ikhwan-101" – Georgetown Profs Team Up With Suspected MB Front
by Abha Shankar
Two of Georgetown University's top faculty in religion are partnering with a private Virginia think tank long suspected of serving as a front for the Muslim Brotherhood.
The think tank in question, the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), twice has been the subject of law enforcement investigations, once during the 1980s and again starting in 2003. Its senior leaders were listed among "members and leaders of the IKHWAN [Muslim Brotherhood]" in the United States in records obtained by the IPT from a closed FBI investigation through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Georgetown professors John Voll and Jonathan Brown each are listed as faculty members at the Fairfax Institute, an IIIT school. Voll and Brown also occupy senior faculty positions at Georgetown's Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU).
