Walkin’ the [Islamist] Snake at Annapolis: Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrating the U.S. Naval Academy

Dave Emory’s entire life­time of work is avail­able on a flash dri­ve that can be obtained here. (The flash dri­ve includes the anti-fas­cist books avail­able on this site.)

COMMENT: For many years, we’ve cov­ered the activ­i­ties of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, an Islam­ic fas­cist orga­ni­za­tion allied with the Axis in World War II and suc­cored by West­ern intel­li­gence ser­vices as anti-com­mu­nist cadre dur­ing the Cold War.

Par­ent orga­ni­za­tion of al-Qae­da, Hamas and Pales­tin­ian Islam­ic Jihad, the Broth­er­hood was joined at the hip with the George W. Bush admin­is­tra­tion, hav­ing been nur­tured by GOP big wigs Grover Norquist and Karl Rove.

Con­tin­u­ing a most dis­turb­ing trend of infil­tra­tion of impor­tant U.S. insti­tu­tions, the Broth­er­hood is estab­lish­ing a pres­ence at the U.S. Naval Acad­e­my.

This must be viewed against the back­ground of the Nazi tract Serpten­t’s Walk, about a Nazi takeover of the Unit­ed States fol­low­ing a series of ter­ror­ist inci­dents involv­ing WMD. Hav­ing suc­cess­ful­ly infil­trat­ed the mil­i­tary (as well as gain­ing con­trol of the opin­ion-form­ing media), the Under­ground Reich takes over the U.S., after a dec­la­ra­tion of mar­tial law.

Nazi and fas­cist groups have long advo­cat­ed the acqui­si­tion of spe­cial­ized knowl­edge and abil­i­ties, infil­trat­ing mil­i­tary and law enforce­ment orga­ni­za­tions in order to acquire the abil­i­ty to over­throw the gov­ern­ment.

Need­less to say, this bodes very poor­ly for the future.

A few points to con­sid­er in pass­ing:

  • Note that the IIIT was part of the SAAR net­work, nur­tured by, and joined at the hip with, Grover Norquist. Although the post excerpt­ed below ref­er­ences the Oper­a­tion Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002, there is no ref­er­ence to Norquist, Rove, Talat Oth­man (the Bush friend, busi­ness part­ner and polit­i­cal advis­er who inter­ced­ed on behalf of the insti­tu­tions and indi­vid­u­als tar­get­ed. In fact, Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Dai­ly Watch (like its wor­thy pre­de­ces­sor Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Dai­ly Report) seems to skirt the Rove/Norquist/Bush Oth­man links to the Broth­er­hood.)
  • Sinanovic appears to be of Balkan descent, per­haps either Bosn­ian or Kosovar/Albanian her­itage.
  • One of the IIIT’s sum­mer pro­gram instruc­tors–Louay Safi–was an instruc­tor at Fort Hood, imme­di­ate­ly pri­or to the shoot­ing that gar­nered head­lines. Major Hasan (the shoot­er)  was an Islamist Army offi­cer. Again, hav­ing Broth­er­hood instruc­tors in the mil­i­tary bodes very, very poor­ly for the future.

“US Naval Acad­e­my Instruc­tor Teach­ing On Behalf Of US Mus­lim Broth­er­hood”; The Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Dai­ly Watch; 5/14/2013.

EXCERPT: Accord­ing to pro­mo­tion­al mate­r­i­al, a Unit­ed States Naval Acad­e­my pro­fes­sor is teach­ing on behalf of the Inter­na­tion­al Insti­tute of Islam­ic Thought (IIIT), a part of the US Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and where glob­al Broth­er­hood leader Youssef Qaradawi report­ed­ly serves as a trustee. IIIT recent­ly announced its Sum­mer Stu­dents Pro­gram for 2013 to be held from May 26 – July 3. Accord­ing to the IIIT announce­ment, one of the instruc­tors for the pro­gram will be Pro­fes­sor Ermin Sinanovic, an Assis­tant Pro­fes­sor in the Depart­ment of Polit­i­cal Sci­ence at the Unit­ed States Naval Acad­e­my in Annapo­lis, Mary­land who will be teach­ing the fol­low­ing course titled “Mus­lim World Affairs” . . . .

. . . . …an Assis­tant Pro­fes­sor in the Depart­ment of Polit­i­cal Sci­ence at the Unit­ed States Naval Acad­e­my in Annapo­lis, Mary­land, USA. He stud­ied for an MA and a PhD in Polit­i­cal Sci­ence at the Maxwell School of Syra­cuse Uni­ver­si­ty. Prof. Sinanovic obtained two BAs (one in Qur’an and Sun­nah Stud­ies, the oth­er in Polit­i­cal Sci­ence) and an MA (Islam­ic Civ­i­liza­tion) from the Inter­na­tion­al Islam­ic Uni­ver­si­ty Malaysia. His research inter­ests include transna­tion­al Islam­ic revival, South­east Asian pol­i­tics, Islam­ic move­ments, Mid­dle East pol­i­tics, Islam­ic polit­i­cal thought, and Islam and pol­i­tics in gen­er­al. At the Naval Acad­e­my, Prof. Sinanovic teach­es cours­es on South­east Asian pol­i­tics, Mid­dle East pol­i­tics, and Islam and pol­i­tics. He speaks Bosn­ian, Eng­lish, Ara­bic, and Malay. “ . . .

. . . . One of the oth­er instruc­tors at the IIIT sum­mer pro­gram will be US Mus­lim Broth­er­hood leader Louay Safi, iden­ti­fied in the announce­ment as affil­i­at­ed with the Col­lege of Islam­ic Stud­ies of the Qatar Foun­da­tion. In 2009 Louay Safi, also an offi­cial at the Islam­ic Soci­ety of North Amer­i­ca (ISNA), was at the cen­ter of a con­tro­ver­sy when it was learned that the US Defense Depart­ment brought him to Fort Hood as an instruc­tor and that he had been lec­tur­ing on Islam to troops in Fort Hood who were about to deploy to Afghanistan. In Feb­ru­ary 2010, the activ­i­ties and lec­tures of Dr. Safi on all mil­i­tary bases were sus­pend­ed pend­ing a crim­i­nal inquiry by the U.S. mil­i­tary. A shoot­ing took place at Fort Hood near Killeen, Texas on Novem­ber 5, 2009 in which a sin­gle gun­man killed 13 peo­ple and over 30 peo­ple were injured in the worst shoot­ing ever to take place on an Amer­i­can mil­i­tary base. . .


“The US Naval Acad­e­my And the US Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Part 2: The Case Of Akbar Ahmed”; The Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Dai­ly Watch; 5/16/2013.

EXCERPT: The Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Dai­ly Watch has iden­ti­fied a sec­ond pro­fes­sor at the US Naval Acad­e­my who is close to the Inter­na­tion­al Insti­tute of Islam­ic Thought (IIIT), a part of the US Mus­lim Broth­er­hood and where Glob­al Broth­er­hood leader Youssef Qaradawi report­ed­ly serves as a trustee. The GMBDW report­ed yes­ter­day that Ermin Sinanovic, who is teach­ing a course at the acad­e­my on “Mus­lim World Affairs”, would also be teach­ing at two dif­fer­ent venues for IIIT. Dr. Sinanovic was not alone how­ev­er. In Sep­tem­ber 2008, US media report­ed that Dr. Akbar Ahmed would be join­ing the U.S. Naval Acad­e­my to fill a new chair for Mid­dle East Stud­ies and would be teach­ing cours­es, advis­ing mid­ship­men and fac­ul­ty, and assist­ing in research projects. Accord­ing to his CV, Dr. Ahmed served as First Dis­tin­guished Chair for Mid­dle East/Islamic Stud­ies at the US Naval Acad­e­my from 2008–2009.

Dr. Akbar Ahmed is a for­mer Pak­istan High Com­mis­sion­er (Ambas­sador) to the UK and Ire­land and cur­rent­ly the Ibn Khal­dun Chair of Islam­ic Stud­ies at Amer­i­can Uni­ver­si­ty in Wash­ing­ton DC. He is fre­quent­ly described as a promi­nent Islam­ic mod­er­ate who has received numer­ous awards and acco­lades. How­ev­er, Dr. Ahmed also has a long asso­ci­a­tion with the Inter­na­tion­al Insti­tute of Islam­ic Thought (IIIT), estab­lished in 1980 by some of the most impor­tant fig­ures in the U.S. Mus­lim Broth­er­hood. . . .

. . . . IIIT was asso­ci­at­ed with the now defunct SAAR Foun­da­tion, a net­work of Islam­ic orga­ni­za­tions locat­ed in North­ern Vir­ginia that was raid­ed by the Fed­er­al gov­ern­ment in March 2002 in con­nec­tion with the financ­ing of ter­ror­ism and both orga­ni­za­tions had been under inves­ti­ga­tion at that time by the U.S. Jus­tice Depart­ment until at least mid 2007. The orga­ni­za­tion appeared to have with­drawn from pub­lic view fol­low­ing the 2002 raids but seems to be enjoy­ing a renais­sance of late. . . .

  1. (Dear Dave,

    Please post this arti­cle where it’s most appro­pri­ate — and include the news agency pho­to of the actu­al flag fly­ing next to the Mosque.

    It would be infor­ma­tive to cat­a­logue and pub­lish all of the news agency pho­tos demon­strat­ing direct Naz­i/­neo-Nazi sym­bol­o­gy, ges­tures, salutes, mil­i­tary for­ma­tions, goose-step­ping, etc. of the Mus­lim forces trained to destroy Israel.

    Hezbol­lah, Hamas, Wahabists, what­ev­er you have, you should post togeth­er to show the mis­guid­ed Liberal/Progressive Anti-Semi­tes in this coun­try what they are direct­ly sup­port­ing and fund­ing.

    KPFA, Amy Good­man, etc., should be com­pelled to answer how they can ignore these images and claim Israel should not defend its peo­ple and lands against anni­hi­la­tion.)

    Hun­dreds of res­i­dents of Gush Etzion, south of Jerusalem, were astound­ed Mon­day morn­ing to see an over­sized Nazi flag fly­ing next to a mosque in the Arab town of Beit Omar.

    The res­i­dents noti­fied the IDF.

    A res­i­dent, Uri Arnon, told the Tazpit News Agency: “I felt we were going back 75 years, los­ing our hold on the land. The Arabs no longer feel the need to hide their mur­der­ous ten­den­cies, announc­ing out loud that they wish to anni­hi­late us.”

    An IDF spokesman said that the flag was hung on an elec­tri­cal line, and that they were wait­ing to pro­fes­sion­als to come and remove it.

  2. These two links show how DHS polit­i­cal­ly cor­rect train­ing debunks the glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood orga­ni­za­tion and its ter­ror­ist net­work.

    Part 1

    Part 2

    The fol­low­ing arti­cle shows that Zawahiri admit­ted that Osama Bin Ladin was in the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood. One has to ask the ques­tion how Zawahiri would he know unless he was in it. His par­tic­i­pa­tion in the destruc­tion of 3 Egypt­ian pres­i­dents Nass­er, Sadat, Mubarek would strong­ly sug­gests he would have been a mem­ber start­ing as a teenag­er.

    UC Regents con­firm first prac­tic­ing Mus­lim stu­dent to board, spurring protests from Jew­ish groups

    By Lisa Leff

    Asso­ci­at­ed Press

    Post­ed: 07/17/2013 12:50:24 PM PDT
    Updat­ed: 07/17/2013 12:51:35 PM PDT

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­ni­a’s gov­ern­ing board con­firmed the first prac­tic­ing Mus­lim stu­dent mem­ber to the board on Wednes­day, despite oppo­si­tion from some Jew­ish groups.

    UC regents vot­ed in favor of UC Berke­ley stu­dent Sadia Sai­fud­din’s nom­i­na­tion. One regent, Richard Blum, abstained from the vote.

    The Simon Wiesen­thal Cen­ter, Stand­With­Us, con­ser­v­a­tive com­men­ta­tor David Horowitz and oth­ers had called on the board to reject Sai­fud­din’s appoint­ment, alleg­ing that some of her polit­i­cal activ­i­ties as a stu­dent sen­a­tor and mem­ber of the Mus­lim Stu­dents Asso­ci­a­tion at Berke­ley make her unqual­i­fied to rep­re­sent stu­dents.

    Those activ­i­ties includ­ed co-spon­sor­ing a bill call­ing for the divest­ment of uni­ver­si­ty funds from com­pa­nies with eco­nom­ic ties to the Israeli mil­i­tary or Israeli set­tle­ments on the West Bank. She also authored a res­o­lu­tion con­demn­ing a UC San­ta Cruz lec­tur­er who had linked the Mus­lim Stu­dents Asso­ci­a­tion with ter­ror­ism “for incit­ing racist and Islam­o­pho­bic rhetoric.”

    The Israeli-Pales­tin­ian con­flict has been an occa­sion­al flash­point for stu­dents and fac­ul­ty mem­bers at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia. Pro-Pales­tin­ian protests have become a reg­u­lar occur­rence on many Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia cam­pus­es, where stu­dents some­times use sen­sa­tion­al tac­tics, includ­ing sim­u­lat­ing check­points and com­bin­ing
    swastikas with the Star of David.

    In 2010, 10 Mus­lim stu­dents were con­vict­ed of mis­de­meanors for repeat­ed­ly inter­rupt­ing a speech by Israeli Ambas­sador Michael Oren at UC Irvine, where stu­dents were sus­pect­ed of paint­ing swastikas in uni­ver­si­ty build­ings.

    A for­mer Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, Berke­ley stu­dent who was co-pres­i­dent of the Zion­ist stu­dent group Tik­vah sued the uni­ver­si­ty in fed­er­al court two years ago over her alleged March 2010 assault by the cam­pus leader of Stu­dents for Jus­tice in Pales­tine. The suit was dis­missed, but the U.S. Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion is inves­ti­gat­ing her com­plaint alleg­ing that pro-Pales­tin­ian cam­pus events have cre­at­ed an anti-Semit­ic envi­ron­ment.

    Blum said he was con­cerned about the divi­sive­ness caused by the divest­ment mea­sure.

    Before the vote, sev­er­al cur­rent and for­mer stu­dents urged the board to con­firm Sai­fud­din, 21, cit­ing her lead­er­ship and tol­er­ance as a mem­ber of the stu­dent gov­ern­ment at UC Berke­ley.

    For­mer UC stu­dent regent Jonathan Stein praised her work dur­ing the dis­cus­sion over the divest­ment bill.

    “Sadia is what kept UC Berke­ley from crack­ing apart through that expe­ri­ence,” he said.

    But Rober­ta Seid, research-edu­ca­tion direc­tor at Stand­With­Us, said Sai­fud­din’s actions had “mar­gin­al­ized many stu­dents.” Seid was one of two peo­ple who spoke against Sai­fud­din’s con­fir­ma­tion.

    “She is promi­nent in the anti-Israel boy­cott cam­paign, an extrem­ist move­ment that demo­nized the Jew­ish state, rejects dia­logue, and fos­ters big­otry,” Seid said.
