A Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated activist whose organization recently came under fire for holding an anti-Semitic rally in support of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi will head a fundraiser for Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly (Va.).
U.S.-based Muslim Brotherhood allies Akram Elzend and Sameh Elhennawy will co-host a fundraiser for Connolly later this month at the Fairfax residence of Mohamed Mohamed, according to a copy of the invitation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Attendees of the March 22 fundraiser are asked to donate between $150 and $400 in order to attend the event, where supporters will have a chance to “express appreciation and have direct conversation with” Connolly, according to the invitation.
A form attached to the invitation asks donors to include their personal information and contains a message that the materials were “paid for and authorized by Connolly for Congress.”
The event has attracted the attention of some U.S.-based analysts who track the Muslim Brotherhood, particularly due to a pro-Morsi rally several weeks ago in New York City that featured anti-Semitic displays and was organized by a group Elzend cofounded.

The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) was founded in Egypt in 1928 and is considered a terrorist organization by many countries, including Islamic countries. Its stated goal is to instill the Qur’an as the sole religion and political body in the life of every individual and country worldwide.
According to Richard Clarke, former Chief counterterrorism advisor on the U.S. National Security Council under Presidents Clinton and Bush, “The Muslim Brotherhood has provided the ideological underpinning for almost all the modern Sunni Islamic terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda, Hamas and Islamic Jihad. In fact the Brotherhood plays an active role in promoting terrorism against the U.S.”
The Muslim Brotherhood founder, Hassan al-Banna[i], stated “the nature of Islam is to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”
If the US military doesn’t know better, then who are we to trust with our defense? Ourselves. Remember that.
There have been over 22,000 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11 — each one with imprimatur of a Muslim cleric. You would have thought Anwar Awlaki, Pentagon darling and leading jihad cleric, might have taught the Department of Defense a thing or two.
The unending treachery of Barack Hussein Obama. The State Department has confirmed its support for the Muslim Brotherhood working in the US embassy.
The State Department spokesman said:
“We can confirm that a locally employed staff member of the U.S. Embassy was detained on January 25th and that, as far as we understand, he has been held without charges since then…”
OK, for all those people out there who think there can be religious neutrality, I’m just making it clear, there cannot be such a thing (It’s called the myth of neutrality). Everyone falls under some religious ideology, whether it be Christianity, Islam, secular humanism or even atheism (and yes it is a religious ideology). With that said, there is a petition posted at the WhiteHouse.gov site calling for recognizing Muslim holidays during the school year by the government education system.
According to the petition:
With the growing population of Muslims in the United States of America (including first, second, third, and fourth generation) we believe it is high time that Muslim holidays are recognized by schools throughout this nation. Unfortunately many Muslim families are forced to choose between their children’s education and their religious obligations. Muslim school children and staff deserve the same benefits afforded to the followers of other faiths. We call on President Obama to support this petition and advance the inclusiveness of our great nation.
I have given warning about what Islamists do as they grow in number before. I have also reported that, unlike many so-called Christians in America, these people will force their ideology on the culture, not integrate into it. Their goal is one of world dominance.
Of course, Al Qaeda grew out of the Muslim Brotherhood, not coincidental.
Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood movement has signed a pact with the al-Qaeda-affiliated radical Salafi organization Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, which claimed responsibility last week for a terror attack in the city of Mansoura, security sources told the London-based Arabic-language al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper.
According to the sources, the Muslim Brotherhood has an alliance with another al-Qaeda-affiliated organization. Meanwhile, senior Muslim Brotherhood member Ibrahim Al-Sayed said the Egyptian government’s decision to declare the movement a terror organization was meaningless and would not harm the movement.
On Wednesday, Egypt’s military-backed interim government declared the Muslim Brotherhood to be a terrorist group. This declaration criminalizes the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities, financing and membership, including the countries former president Mohamed Morsi.
According to a report by Breitbart’s Elizabeth Sheld, eight Democrat lawmakers have proposed a bill that would eliminate the death penalty as a consequence for individuals convicted of numerous federal crimes, among them espionage and treason. Nothing happens in Washington without a reason, so The Federal Death Penalty Abolition Act (HR 3741) gives rise to a bevy of questions and suspicions.
What motivation would congressional Democrats have for wishing to neutralize the death penalty option for such serious crimes? While the average news consumer is conditioned to summarily dismiss the machinations of government unless it directly impacts their pocketbook, or their sensibilities are deliberately targeted by the press, common sense dictates that elected officials proposing such a law could be anticipating the requisite conditions, thus necessitating the law in the first place.
So, who do these lawmakers suppose might be tried for treason, espionage, or the host of other federal crimes now punishable by death in the not-so-distant future?
Well, take your pick.

Homeland Insecurity: The post-9/11 Capitol is like Fort Knox. Yet earlier this month, a convicted terrorist still under house arrest waltzed through that security rampart. Who’s minding the fort?
A group lobbying to restore the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Cairo held a Dec. 5 briefing in the high-security Cannon Office Building on Capitol Hill.
The event, sponsored by the Egypt Freedom Foundation, featured speakers critical of the ouster of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.
NEW YORK – A threat to Hillary Clinton’s much anticipated 2016 presidential campaign appears to be developing in Egypt where the government is taking steps to criminalize the Muslim Brotherhood.
Specifically, a new criminal complaint has been filed with Egypt’s attorney general, Hisham Barakat, alleging U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton collaborated with Naglaa Mahmoud, the wife of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi in seeking to excite domestic insurrections to topple Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the Egyptian general who has been commander in chief of the Egyptian armed forces, as well as minister of defense, since Aug. 12, 2012.
Researcher Walid Shoebat, a native Arabic-speaker and a former Palestinian Liberation Organization operative, has reported on his blog credible news sources in Egypt have reported in Arabic that criminal charges brought against Hillary Clinton and Morsi’s wife.
