Jamal Badawi: Enduring Link to ISNA's Radical Past
For an organization that has tried to distance itself from its Muslim Brotherhood roots, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) continues to rely on a Muslim Brotherhood official as a key speaker at many of its events.
Jamal Badawi is scheduled to speak during three sessions at ISNA's East Regional Conference in Tampa this weekend. Among them, "Understanding Shari'ah: Sacred Principles in Striving for the Human Development."
Badawi, a member at large on ISNA's governing board, is deeply rooted in the Muslim Brotherhood's North American infrastructure, records show. He is listed on the first page of a 1992 telephone directory of Brotherhood members. He also was founding member of the Muslim American Society (MAS), identified as the Brotherhood's U.S. arm in a 2004 Chicago Tribune story.
