How the Muslim Brotherhood Operates in Tennessee (part 6 of 8)

tnjihad (2)tn Council 4 political justice, May 18, 2015:

Islamist Political Action Groups:

American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC)

AMAC was organized in late 2011 with the support of the Commissioner of Tennessee’s Department of Safety and Homeland Security and assistance of department personnel.

Organizing state level councils such as AMAC is a step taken right out of the Muslim Brotherhood plan. Coincidentally the 2006 conference that launched this action step included three organizations, one of which is among the 29 named organizations in the Muslim Brotherhood plan. All three of the conference participants were part of a larger coalition that included other mainstream Muslim Brotherhood groups CAIR, ISNA and MAS.

AMAC board members have spoken favorably about Muslim Brotherhood organizations. Sabina Mohyuddin an AMAC organizer and board member, announced in an AMAC presentation that several Muslim Brotherhood organizations “help American Muslims stay true to their religious values while being uniquely American.” (embed video)

AMAC board members Zak Mohyuddin (current) and Mwafaq Aljabarry (former) each ran for political office in August 2014 primaries. Mohyuddin ran as a Democrat and Aljabarry as a Republican. Both lost.

In 2012, AMAC announced that it had become an affiliate of the Islamic Networks Group (ING), which itself is heavily connected to the mainstream Muslim Brotherhood collective of CAIR, ICNA, MAS, and ISNA. Taking its cue from the Brotherhood’s directive, AMAC planned to use ING’s prepared scripts to spread its reach to “middle and high schools, universities, faith-based and community organizations, and other venues. We seek to educate about American Muslims and their faith as a means of promoting religious literacy, mutual respect, and understanding.”

AMAC board members have also followed the Brotherhood’s plan strategy of forming coalitions. AMAC organizer and board member Drost Kokoye has concentrated her efforts in working with the pro-HAMAS group Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), illegal immigration advocates and pretty much any group that has a “I hate America” agenda.

AMAC leadership openly supports Obama’s unConstitutional actions regarding illegal immigration.

Immediately prior to organizing and chairing AMAC, Daoud Abudiab teamed up with Awadh Binhazim, (the self-appointed Vanderbilt Muslim chaplain), on November 3, 2011 to educate the Williamson County Democrats about Islam.

Abudiab and his AMAC co-chair also joined the board of the TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC) to solidify the cross-pollination of these groups. In 2013 Abudiab left the AMAC board, but as of this writing, continues to serve as the president of the TIRRC board. In 2014 he started an interfaith organization, the Faith & Culture Center which is heavily focused on “Our Muslim Neighbor” emulating ISNA’s interfaith outreach tactics.

American Center for Outreach (ACO)

AMAC and ACO were started at the same time by the same people. Several AMAC members served on both organizations. They hired Remziya Suleyman to operate ACO and lobby for Muslims in Tennessee. Suleyman is credited with solidifying Muslim Brotherhood CAIR’s presence in Tennessee and affirmatively linking the Muslim voice in Tennessee with Muslim Brotherhood ideology and organization representatives.

In the fall of 2014, Paul “Iesa Galloway took over the operation of ACO and Suleyman moved to Washington to work for the Kurdish Regional Government office there. Galloway is a professional spin doctor, an asset to an organization forced to “massage” facts to fit their victim narrative which has characterized the ACO since its start.

Shortly after converting to Islam, Galloway founded and directed the Muslim Brotherhood’s CAIR office in Houston for four years. He was the PR director for Mohamed Elibiary’s Lone Star Intelligence company and a board member on Elibiary’s Freedom and Justice Foundation Board serving alongside former ICN imam Abdulhakim Mohamed who was a board member at the same time.

Mohamed Elibiary has a long and public relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood. He admits having a relationship with an official of the Holy Land Foundation who is now in jail for helping to finance Hamas. Elibiary also served on the Board of Muslim Brotherhood’s CAIR Dallas-Forth Worth chapter.

Galloway coordinated the 2012 Texas Dawa Conference, connecting with conference speakers from Tennessee, Remziya Suleyman, Memphis imam Yasir Qadhi and Danish Siddiqi. In 2009 Qadhi lectured at the mosque attended by the Boston marathon bombers. His comments included “replacing U.S. democracy with Islamic rule” and he called Christians ‘filthy’ polytheists whose ‘life and prosperity … holds no value in the state of Jihad.’”

There is a significant degree of cross-pollination between ACO, AMAC and the TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC). All three organizations have located their offices in the Conexion Americas building in Nashville.

TIRRC runs amnesty workshops and employs a DACA Coordinator. DACA is Obama’s 2012 amnesty for children brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents who also entered illegally.)

Jerusalem Fund (JF)

As stated on its website:

“The Jerusalem Fund for Education & Community Development is an independent, non-profit, non-political, non-sectarian organization based in Washington, D.C.  Funding for operational expenses is derived from investment income. This, together with donations from private individuals throughout the U.S., supports our humanitarian grants.”

The Jerusalem Fund (the Fund) in its current configuration, is comprised of 3 programs – “The Palestine Center”, “The Humanitarian Link” and “The Gallery”. Despite the Fund’s self-description as “non-political”, a review of its leadership, programming, and issues of focus, reflect overtly pro-Palestinian/pro-Hamas/anti-Israel positions.

In 1977 Hisham Sharabi founded the organization that in 1981 was renamed to the Jerusalem Fund. He served as Chairman until 2005 when Dr. Subhi Ali took over. In 1991 Sharabi founded The Centre for Policy Analysis on Palestine that was added to the Fund’s organization and renamed the Palestine Center. This arm of the Fund held a conference in 2003 entitled “Israel’s Policy of Apartheid and Ethnic Cleansing,” reflective of the Fund’s real purpose. Sharabi  advocated a Palestinian “armed struggle” if necessary, to end “Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza”.

Sharabi was also a board member of WISE (World and Islam Studies Enterprise) which was incorporated and led by Sami al-Arian, who was subsequently sentenced in 2006 to prison anddeported in February 2015 because of his leadership of the U.S.-designated terrorist organization Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). WISE was funded by the Muslim Brotherhood’s IIIT.  Tarik Hamdi, identified as an officer/staff member of WISE, is listed in a federal affidavit as providing material support to Al-Qaeda, Bin Laden and the PIJ.  He left WISE to work for IIIT.  He subsequently left the U.S. and relocated to the Middle East.

WISE served as the U.S. money-receiving front for PIJ and while Sharabi was a board member,funneled payments to the PIJ martyrs through the Islamic International Arab Bank (Arab Bank).

The HAMAS Charter is posted on the JF website along with position papers and information briefs highlighting positive aspects to HAMAS. Sharabi described HAMAS as “the true fida’i (self-sacrifice) resistance in Palestine since the outbreak of the Palestinian intifada.

The Jeruslaem Fund’s recently departed Executive Director Yousef Munayyer was explicit in his anti-Israel pro-BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) advocacy. When asked by Hannity Munayyer did not answer the question, “Is HAMAS a terrorist organization?”

Law school professor William Jacobson explains, “BDS should being seen for the anti-Semitic movement it is, a movement that demonizes only the Jewish State, holds only the Jewish State to the highest standards no one else meets (certainly not in the Middle East), and seeks the destruction only of the sole Jewish State in a sea of Islamic States.”

The Jerusalem Fund shares many attributes with the Holy Land Foundation that was shut down by the government.

The organization is located in Washington, D.C. but its chairman, Dr. Subhi Ali, lives in Waverly, Tennessee. Subhi Ali joined the Fund’s board in 2000, serving as Chairman since 2005 after the Fund’s founder, Hisham Sharabi stepped aside.

Subhi Ali is the father of Samar Ali, appointed by Governor Haslam to the Tennessee Department Economic and Community Development (ECD) as Assistant Commissioner for International Affairs.

When questioned about the hiring of Samar Ali, a sharia finance specialist, then ECD Commissioner Bill Hagerty admitted publicly that Subhi Ali called him and asked him to look at Samar’s resume which includes work done on behalf of the Jerusalem Fund. After Subhi’s phone call, Haggerty hired Samar.

Shortly after Samar’s hiring in 2012, questions were raised about why the Haslam administration hired a sharia finance specialist. In response, the administration redacted her sharia finance credentials from information released to the public about her hiring. Samar left the ECD less than two years later with little accomplished in the international division.

Muslim American Society (MAS)

Fadi Ezzeir is the President of the Nashville chapter of MAS and listed as the Executive Director of its scouting department. He was also an assistant imam at the Nashville Salahadeen Center mosque and Youth Director there. In 2002 he organized the first Islamic boy scout troop in Nashville. In 2006, in violation of scouting rules, Ezzeir used the Muslim boy scout troop to make voter calls using a MAS script.

In 2004 the Secretary-General of the MAS acknowledged in court that it had been founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Muslim Brotherhood’s plan addresses establishing organizations as part of “settling” Islam in the West and to serve the functional part of a civilizational jihad. The plan says that the first “comprehensive organization” established by their prophet, was the mosque. But to accomplish their plan in the West, they need other organizations because “[the West] does not respect or give weight to any group without effective, functional and strong organizations.”

The plan lists all kinds of organizations that are needed, including scouting.

Tennessee’s Troubling Islamist Network

4960012-Tennessee_Welcomes_You_Tennessee-450x347By David James

The “red-green alliance” in Tennessee between the liberal-left and Islamists is alive and well but made even more novel with the participation of Republican Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam.

Never one to shy away from Obama’s agenda for the U.S., Governor Haslam’s push to elevate the political status of Muslims in his state must leave Tennesseans wondering if their Republican governor is actually a Democrat.

Governor Haslam’s promotion of the Islamist agenda in his state progressed from having his Commissioner of Safety and Homeland Security work behind the scenes to support and partner with the American Muslim Advisory Council to having the Muslim Council train state law enforcement and Department of Children’s Services staff.  Meanwhile, he appointed shariah compliant finance specialist, Samar Ali as International Director for the TN Department of Economic and Community Development.

Unfortunately for the Governor, his appointment of Samar Ali (whose donation to Democrat Harold Ford, Jr. and later the Obama Victory Fund didn’t raise an eyebrow) resulted in harsh criticism from Tennessee conservatives.  Attempting to deflect criticism, the Governor’s office publicly released Ms. Ali’s credentials but was careful to redact her extensive experience and expertise in shariah finance.  But the release included references to her father’s curriculum vitae to convince the public that this family from Waverly was 100% Tennessean.

No one can dispute the accomplishments of Dr. Subhi Ali, Samar’s father, but his very active Red/Green political life was conspicuously omitted by the Governor.  For example, Dr. Ali and his wife were multi-year donors (see here and here) to pro-Hamas/anti-Israel Democrat Cynthia Mckinney, political support consistent with Dr. Ali’s long-standing service to the Jerusalem Fund.

The Jerusalem Fund – The Holy Land Foundation II?

The Jerusalem Fund (originally the American Palestine Education Foundation) was founded in 1977 by Dr. Hisham Sharabi who served as Chairman of the Board until he died in 2005.  Despite self-description as “non-political”, review of the Fund’s leadership, programming, and issues of focus, reflects an overtly pro-Palestinian/pro-Hamas/anti-Israel posture. Documents currently available show that Subhi Ali joined the Jerusalem Fund’s Board in 2000, became  Vice Chair in 2003 and has served as Chairman from 2005 until the present.

The Jerusalem Fund is comprised of 3 programs:

1) The Palestine Center offers Information Briefs such as the “Rising support for Hamas and the Roots of its Success in Palestine “ (“One of Hamas’ more distinctive qualities is its emphasis on Islam. In addition to its self-proclaimed role as a legitimate and honest replacement to Fateh, Hamas also acts as a religious alternative to the secular Fateh.”)

2) The Humanitarian Link,which provides grants for social services in the “Occupied Palestinian Territories” and supports the Palestine Diabetes Institute.

(Originally named the “Occupied Land Fund,” the Holy Land Foundation was the largest Islamic charity in the U.S., which also claimed the need for humanitarian relief for Palestinians in the occupied territories.  The Holy Land Foundation was successfully prosecuted in 2007 for funding Hamas).

3) The Gallery, which promotes the Palestinian and Arab cultures.

Fund founder Hisham Sharabi advocated a Palestinian “armed struggle” if necessary, to end Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza.  His 1998 paper “The Palestinians: Fifty Years Later,” called for Americans of Palestinian, Arab and Muslim backgrounds to organize using their “constitutional rights as Americans” to “influence a dangerously biased [toward Israel] American policy in the Middle East.”

Sharabi’s political activities also included serving on the board of World & Islam Studies Enterprise (WISE), and along with Jerusalem Fund co-founder and board member, Dr. George Hishmeh, served on the Board of the American Committe on Jerusalem (ACJ).

You Are Known By the Company You Keep

WISE was founded, incorporated and led by Sami al-Arian who was subsequently sentenced in 2006 to prison and deportation because of his leadership of the U.S.-designated terrorist organization Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).

WISE was named in a federal indictment as part of a criminal organization whose members and associates engaged in acts of violence including murder, extortion, money laundering, and fraud. They operated worldwide including the Middle District of Florida.

Islam: Death Cult

by Justin O. Smith

People who immigrate to America should intend to accept and respect our rules, U.S. laws, our way of life and our culture, and they should teach their children to do the same. When they impose their presence in our nation unbidden one would think that, at the least, they would readily integrate. And, if one asks for citizenship, shouldn’t Americans be able to assume that loyalty, reliability, trustworthiness and possibly love for Our Great Nation would be attached to such a request? One would think.

Unfortunately, most of the Muslim immigrants reaching our shores are sorely lacking in any education. They are far removed from the sophisticated Samar Ali, a second generation Muslim currently working in the Tennessee state government (ECD), and they are more typified by the likes of Amal Abdullahi, a 29 year old Muslim woman, who was arrested a few weeks ago for making terrorist threats towards a co-worker at Dell Computers.

Ms Abdullahi’s lawyer attempted to minimize the charges against her on September 8; but, while the threat in which she spoke of getting a gun and shooting people is an extremely serious item, everyone should take pause and be chilled by what was stated prior to this: “her people were dying for Allah everyday, she was ready to die for Allah, that this whole country will be Muslim soon, that this country is full of non-believers… and that non-believers should die, that her life starts after death and that her life is not here… (Nicole Young/’Tennessean’). These statements are regularly heard in Islamic communities across the globe, from modern Europe to third world African and Middle Eastern countries; and they spring from a well of Islamic indoctrination found in the mosques and madrasses, because Arab countries have failed to adapt to modern advances and still seek to govern through oppressive totalitarian measures.

The FBI joined this investigation, but Ms Abdullahi is probably a bit player when compared to Ms Samar Ali and her ties to the Islamic International Arab Bank, which is a known financier of terrorism. This bank has regularly paid approximately $5300 to each of the families of Palestinians killed while carrying out suicide bombings against Israel; Ms Ali was an intern for the Islamic International Arab Bank in 2007.

In 2009, Ms Ali was a founder of the U.S. delegation to the World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF), which is a subsidiary of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. And as unbelievable as it may seem, the International Advisory Panel for the WIEF is chaired by Saleh Abdullah Kamel, who is also a founding member of the Al Shamal Islamic Bank, which was established by Osama bin Laden to fund jihadists and terrorism across the globe; Kamel has also been named a “main sponsor of Al Qaeda” by the UN Security Council.

The OIC regularly meets with Muslim Brotherhood front groups to establish effective strategies for the Islamic movement and a stable Islamic State within America. They state that Muslims should not be made to assimilate, and they assert that any incentive to integrate should equal accomodating their needs/demands as Muslims. In other words, they desire to operate outside U.S. law.

Since CAIR and ISNA are Muslim Brotherhood fronts, a well defined relationship is viewed between two supposed “U.S. political groups” and the foreign governing body of the OIC, which claims jurisdiction over Muslims in any nation, defines human rights through Sharia law and strives to subvert host nations’ governments and societies through the imposition of Sharia law. Whenever a relationship such as this becomes apparent to most of America, national security concerns are paramount… all sorts of warning bells should be ringing… and any collaboration between these groups needs full and intensely detailed investigation from a national security perspective!

For all of you Muslims bent on forcing Sharia compliance in America… if everything was so grand and wonderful under Sharia law in whatever god forsaken nation you are originally from, please return… because you will not succeed here, nor will you like the consequences if you stay your current course!

These Sons and Daughters of Mohammed consider themselves authorized to kill us and our children, because they hate Western ways, the Western culture and the fact that, from their perspective, too much of it has been imported into their native lands, thus corrupting them; they want to kill us because we sun bathe nearly naked, our women wear mini-skirts and shorts, we love music and song, we refuse the burqa and the chador, many of us drink alcohol… or they want to kill us because we are Christians and they hate us… simply because we exist. I have no intention of allowing these anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Jew bigots to succeed in their mission..,. those morally depraved who offer nothing of redeeming social value to humanity in place of their own hate and numerous genocides!

Islamists use a deliverance narrative to position themselves as the champion that can deliver the community from evil. However, islamofascists do little that is champion-like as they revel in their murderous ways as seen in Benghazi. And their victims are overwhelmingly likely to be Muslims, unless the islamofascists are in the U.S. committing act of terror against our citizens or at one of our U.S. Embassies. Once again, just two weeks ago a young 18 year old Muslim man was caught by the FBI attempting to set off a bomb outside a Chicago nightclub. Yes…they do so love their own deaths and they want to take as many Americans, Jews and infidels with them as they can in the process!

After 9/11, all of our major intelligence agencies confirmed that some of the murdering islamofascists hijackers were known to the FBI and the CIA. Since then, many of the other more recent terrorists caught before or after their dastardly deeds have also held residence visas or actually been U.S. citizens. And for this reason, I implore each reader to tell Your Congressman to halt all Muslim immigration immediately and demand legislation for the deportation of all alien Muslims along with U.S. citizens who are Muslims and tied to terrorism in any fashion, affiliates and the like!

Osama is dead, but millions more just the same are rising in the wake of his death.

 “Allah bears witness that the love of jihad and death in the cause of Allah has dominated my life and verses of the sword permeate every cell in my heart, ‘and fight the pagans all together as they fight you all together.'” (-Osama)

Tennessee’s Republican Leadership Appoints Shariah Finance Specialist to Key Economic Post

Shariah Finance Watch:

Regular, long-time readers of SFW may recall a posting from almost exactly 2 years ago in which it was announced that an attorney who had specialized in Shariah Finance had been appointed as a White House fellow by President Barack Obama:

Samar Ali

The attorney in question is named Samar Ali. At the time she was appointed to the Obama White House, Ali raised some concerns nationwide due to her specialization in Shariah-Compliant Finance and her association with the World Islamic Economic Forum, an organization that has essentially designated Shariah Finance as “missionary operations” to promote Islam and Shariah.

Now we find out that the embrace of the Shariah Finance Trojan horse extends across the aisle as well. Sources in Tennessee tell us that the Republican leadership in that state have seen fit to appoint Ali as the International Director of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.

Given Ms. Ali’s close associations with Shariah Finance entities and specialization in Shariah Finance, it is reasonable to expect that the financial jihadists will soon be targeting the Volunteer state for infiltration and influence operations. The lure of petrodollars is powerful indeed and someone in a powerful position on the inside of the halls of power in the state can only be viewed as an opportunity for those who seek to embed Shariah law into America’s financial system.

Now is the time for activists in Tennessee to educate their elected representatives about the threat posed by Shariah finance.

See also New English Review’s report on this story:

So, as night follows day, the infiltration of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security by local MB representatives comes this latest appointment of a rising star in the local Muslim community with possible access to trillions of Shariah compliant petro dollars poised to fund worthy projects in the Volunteer State. It is time that the citizens of Tennessee cast a wary eye on Governor Haslam, who harbors aspirations for higher office in this land, and raise questions about his current appointments with questionable international Islamist connections.
