The radical ties of the imam behind the Trump immigration lawsuit
by Jordan Schachtel
The plaintiff listed in Hawaii's lawsuit against President Trump's executive order on immigration is a member of an organization that has several current and former leaders tied to terrorist activity.
Dr. Ismail Elshikh — the imam of the Muslim Association of Hawaii — is suing Trump in reaction to the second version of his immigration moratorium, which was signed on Monday. The order imposed a 90-day hold on foreign nationals from six terror-tied countries from entering the United States.
According to the Muslim Association of Hawaii website, Imam Elshikh is a member of the North American Imam Federation (NAIF), a fringe Islamic organization that has a board and current leadership stacked with radical Islamic connections.
