U.S. MB Organs Sponsor Conference on Islam in America

September 23, 2011

The GMBDR is reporting that MPAC, and other Muslim Brotherhood affiliates, are sponsoring a conference on Islam in America at DePaul University in Chicago.

Beyond the actual conference, here is some insight in to the alphabet soup of sponsoring players:

MPAC as well as most of the sponsors of the conference have ties to the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood including the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding, George Mason University, and the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago.

MPAC, headquartered in Southern California, was established initially in 1986 as the Political Action Committee of the Islamic Center of Southern California whose key leaders likely had their origins in the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Since that time, MPAC has functioned as the political lobbying arm of the U.S. Brotherhood. MPAC has opposed virtually every count-terror initiative undertaken or proposed by the U.S. government.

Perusing the presentation abstracts (which you can do here), there is a lot of discussion of shaping image, shaping Ummah policy, authority, shari’ah, etc.  While on the surface, one might think that this conference is about Muslim integration into the American fabric, I read a tone of “how can we establish ourselves in spite of this fabric.” 

Maybe it’s me…or maybe it’s me listening to the legion of Muslim/Islamist groups who say they want to destroy Western Civilization…call me crazy.
