As five House members continue to call for an investigation of Muslim Brotherhood influence on the federal government, a researcher who has documented numerous ties between Hillary Clinton’s top aide and the global Islamic supremacist movement has found another connection.
Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, who is said to advise the secretary of state on Middle East policy, was a member of the executive board of the Muslim Student Association, according to an archived Web page discovered by researcher Walid Shoebat.
The Muslim Student Association, or MSA, was identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front group in a 1991 document introduced into evidence during the terror-financing trial of the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation trial.
The internal Brotherhood memo said Muslim Brotherhood members “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and by the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
While the MSA, with nearly 600 chapters in the U.S. and Canada, “has gained legitimacy as a benevolent collegiate faith club,” it was established in 1963 by Muslim Brotherhood leaders to recruit young people into the movement, which is dedicated to “resurrecting true Islamic governance worldwide” based on Islamic law, or Shariah, according to a dossier by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
Former MSA leaders directly tied to international violent jihad include al-Qaida cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, convicted American student Ramy Zamzam, Somali al-Shabaab leader Omar Hammami and al-Qaida fundraiser Abdurahman Alamoudi, a former national MSA president who is now serving a 23-year prison sentence.
