America Rolls Out Welcome Mat for Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood

Despite the fact that Hamas is an illegal terrorist entity since 1995 in the United States, the parent organization of Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, has been invited to one of American’s top universities.

On April 4, an official delegation of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and its Freedom and Justice Party – a major winner in Egypt’s recent parliamentary election — will be visiting Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. The delegation comes at the behest of the Saudi-funded Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding.

Providing aid to Hamas in America is a crime punishable by a long-term prison sentence prison sentence, as was the case with the perpetrators of the Holy Land Terror Funding Trial.

The delegation is expected to meet with U.S. government officials as well.

Georgetown, who had originally sent out an invitation with the Muslim Brotherhood’s name on it, changed the text and sent out a new version when they realized their error however the change was strictly cosmetic, as there is no functional or philosophical difference between the Brotherhood and its political party.

Hamas has openly declared that it is "a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood – Palestine," and in fact was created as a Brotherhood offshoot.

In a well-researched article, Investigative Project for Terrorism reports that just like the Muslim Brotherhood, the Freedom and Justice Party says one thing in English and another in Arabic. It has learned to mouth politically correct platitudes to Westerners, while saving its true ideological diatribes for Egyptians.

According to the party’s website last summer, as articulated by FJP member Abdul Muti Zaki, the party advocates "fostering the spirit of jihad in the nation" through a nationwide program of conscription and ideological indoctrination. Specifically, the party calls for “linking jihad to the ideology that the nation believes in and lives for, and in whose way death is pleasantness… The doctrine of our nation is Islam. Therefore it has only succeeded in its history by jihad 'in the way of Allah.' The messenger of Allah explained the meaning of 'in the way of Allah' saying, 'He who fights that the word of Allah be supreme, he is in the way of Allah.'

The Investigative Project on Terrorism also reports that the party’s 2011 election platform also embraced anti-Western terrorism, referring to it as "resistance," particularly against America and Israel. The chairman of the party said on Feb. 29, "I want an office of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas to be opened in Cairo and I would very much welcome it."

The FJP's website also ran an article by the party's secretary Mohamad Katatni preaching violence against Jews at a demonstration last August.

At the demonstration, the crowd roared chants of "Khaybar, Khaybar, oh Jew, the army of Muhammad is right here," and "Patience, patience, Jews. The Egyptians will dig your grave."

Katatni told the demonstrators, "The Egyptian revolution represents the beginning of the end of the Zionist entity, stressing that the strength of Islam is only one capable of eliminating the Zionist entity and liberating Palestine." Where the Jews had defeated the Arabs time and again in pre-Islamic times, he claimed, Islam provided a new strength. "The Arabs were only able to defeat them after Islam came, and the Arabs and Muslims began to confront the Jews with the strength of faith," he told the crowd.
