Who are the Muslim Brotherhood?
The Muslim Brotherhood (Al-Ihkwan al-Muslimun) is a Sunni, pan-Islamic organization based in Cairo, Egypt whose ultimate aim is the re-establishment of the global Islamic caliphate and the implementation of sharia as state law. Founded in 1928, the group was originally anti-colonial and has since set up affiliated organizations in various countries around the world. Along with Jamaat e-Islami in Pakistan, they are regarded as the progenitors of all other Islamist movements.

Is the Muslim Brotherhood Connected to Terrorism in the United States?
The Muslim Brotherhood was connected to the largest terrorism financing trial in American history, in which leaders of the Holy Land Foundation were convicted of funnelling millions of dollars to Hamas. Clarion has uploaded the court documents from the trial to our website for the benefit of our readers.
One of those documents was the 1991 Explanatory Memorandum, which details one proposed Muslim Brotherhood plan for America.
