The White House and the Muslim Brotherhood

An Egyptian magazine has declared that Muslims connected to the Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated the Obama Administration and have persuaded the White House “from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood in the world.” The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has translated the Rose El-Youssef article into English, raising widespread concern about the loyalties of Muslims close to the U.S. government.
The article alleges that six men in the current administration have extremist ties. Arif Alikhan, the assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development, is also one of the founders of the World Islamic Organization, called a Muslim Brotherhood “subsidiary” by Rose El-Youssef.
Mohammed Elibiary was raised in Texas and is now a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council. Elibiary has been involved in advising federal, state and local law-enforcement on homeland security. In late 2011, Elibiary was accused of leaking sensitive documents to the liberal media to promote stories of Islamophobia. He has denied any involvement in the Muslim Brotherhood, yet the magazine claims he was chosen by President Obama to write his speeches to the Arabic world, including the speech calling for Hosni Mubarak to step down two years ago.
Eboo Patel is said to be close to Hani Ramadan, the grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna. He is also a member of the Muslim Students Association, which has been identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front organization. Patel is a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
The magazine also names Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, Salam al-Marayati, a Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) co-founder, and Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).
Unfortunately, the magazine does not offer sources or corroboration of its accusations. These men may very well have faith-ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and other radical Islamic elements. On the other hand, they may be Americans falsely accused because of their religious beliefs and associations.
It is clear the Obama Administration has supported friendly relations with Egypt since the fall of Mubarak and the election of the Muslim Brotherhood leadership. America has historically maintained positive relations with Egypt. At the same time, the suspicions of a Muslim Brotherhood influence on the Obama Administration is not new. Last July, Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and three other congressmen suggested that Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin might have a Muslim Brotherhood influence, sparking fury among those who considered Abedin an innocent victim of conspiracy theorist racism.
Respectable Muslim organizations have been found to be fronts for more nefarious Islamic groups in the past. On November 24, 2008, the Holy Land Foundation, a Muslim charity, was found guilty of laundering millions of dollars in support of the terrorist group Hamas. A 1991 internal memo by Mohamed Akram, a U.S.-based Hamas leader as well as a member of the Board of Directors for the Muslim Brotherhood, surfaced at the trial. It instructed Muslims in America on taking over the United States from within. The memo stated that Muslim settlers “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.”
Muslims In America:
There have been two main views regarding Islam since the September 11 attacks in America.
View 1: The first group believes that Allah and the God of the Bible are one and the same and that Islam is basically a good religion. This side views the September 11 attacks as an action by fundamentalists working outside the peaceful spirit of Islam.
View 2: The second group argues that while many Muslims may be non-violent moderates, Islam is a dangerous religion – one that supports the murder or forced conversion of anybody outside the Muslim faith and one that is bent on the conversion or destruction of all non-Islamic nations, especially America and Israel.
There is certainly the potential for danger; Muslims believe that all the world will one day submit to Allah. At the same time, there is a basic fact that Christians must remember: Muslims are dying without Christ!
More sinister than Islamic plans to take over the planet is the danger that each Muslim faces without Jesus. Islam denies the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as a payment for sins and the way to eternal life. The millions of Muslims around the world are people for whom Christ died, yet most do not know that Good News. Whether moderate or fundamentalist, Muslims all need to hear the message that God so loved the world that He gave His Son to die. It is not God’s desire that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).
Muslims see the Trinity as a threat to monotheism. Islam teaches that Jesus was born of a virgin, but it denies that he was the Son of God. It teaches that Jesus Christ was a great prophet but that he never died on the cross. Muslims believe they will have to be judged based on their own good works according to the strict laws of the Koran, and even then they can have no guarantee of heaven (unless they die in jihad).
Many Muslims have no clue that God loves them and wants them to know Him personally. A large number are intimidated by their religious leaders and feel no freedom to search for God outside of the heavy hand of Islam. While those committing murder in the name of Islam must be stopped, individual Muslims still need to know the love and forgiveness that can be found in Christ alone. We in the Christian community need to love Muslims with Christ’s love and show them who God is through the power of His Spirit working in us. If members of the Muslim community count us their enemies, Christians must pray for them.
“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.” -Matthew 5:44
