Muslims of the Americas tied to Muslim Brotherhood?

A while back, some sleuthy readers sent me information about this and I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it. I’ve looked into it again and am still not sure what is there exactly, if anything, but perhaps someone else might have some additional insight.

The readers sent me links to several listings for a non-profit in Hancock, NY called Ikhwanul Muslimun Inc. [Being interpreted, “Ikhwanul Muslimun” = “Muslim Brotherhood”]

Ikhwanul Muslimun is, in fact, listed in the IRS online database of “Charities & Non-Profits”. The organization is also listed on two websites listing presumably charitable organizations accepting car donations [here and here]. Interestingly, the address for Ikhwanul Muslimun corresponds to that of the Muslim Parochial School near Hancock [here and here].

Records listing contact names for both Ikhwanul Muslimun and the Muslim Parochial School were then matched to the address of Islamberg, the headquarters compound of Muslims of the Americas (MOA). Incidently, another "charity", which isn't listed with the IRS, called Hand-to-Hands Inc. is also based at Islamberg. It purports to be the "humanitarian and social welfare arm" of the MOA. International Quranic Open University is yet another arm of the group based in Hancock. MOA, which owns possibly two-dozen settlements like the one in NY throughout the US and claims several thousand members, is the primary front organization for a Pakistan-based Islamist militant group known as Jamaat ul-Fuqra.

MOA has a long history in Brooklyn. An address history search for the individual connected with Ikhwanul Muslimun showed links to addresses in Hancock, Deposit, and Brooklyn, NY among other locales. Another search linked the principal of the Muslim Parochial School to both Brooklyn, NY and Williamsport, PA where an MOA group used to operate.

So, dots have been connected. But, what else do we know? Still not sure. Is this a branch of THE Muslim Brotherhood? Is it a funding arm for a Kashmiri militant group? Whatever the case, it appears to represent yet another MOA front organization.

Fuqra Headquarters: Hancock, NY

It wouldn't surprise me in the least that the MB is in America, raising money under cover.

The MB has branches reaching seemingly everywhere, including into Congress now.

First-ever Muslim Congressman Keith Hakim Mohammed Ellison, D-Minn, sworn in with hand on, believe it or not, a Koran, is linked to CAIR, a front for Hamas, itself derived from the MB.

I've been watching that guy since the midterm campaign.

Turns out he's actually been supporting terrorists:
