Long suspected of being a front for the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) — the grandfather of modern Islamist movements — the MSA is named in a recently released MB memo as one of "our organizations and the organizations of our friends" that would help Muslims "understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within."
