Yaqub Mirza, the Kaiser Family and Operation Green Quest

COMMENT: For almost a decade, we have been cov­er­ing the Oper­a­tion Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002 and the sub­se­quent, ongo­ing sub­ver­sion of the inves­ti­ga­tion into the fund­ing of Islamist ter­ror­ism.

(Oper­a­tion Green Quest is the oper­a­tion launched in the imme­di­ate after­math of 9/11 with the spe­cif­ic aim of cut­ting off fund­ing for Islam­ic ter­ror­ist orga­ni­za­tions, such as Al Qae­da, Hamas and Pales­tin­ian Islam­ic Jihad–all of them off­shoots of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood. When the 2002 raids were exe­cut­ed, the inves­ti­ga­tion went right to the top of the Bush admin­is­tra­tion and the GOP.)

Although  a num­ber of insti­tu­tions and indi­vid­u­als were raid­ed on that date, Yaqub Mirza, who set up the insti­tu­tions that were raid­ed, was nev­er arrest­ed.

In addi­tion to the links between the milieu raid­ed on 3/20/2002 and the admin­is­tra­tion of George W. Bush, Bush friend and busi­ness part­ner Talat Oth­man and GOP big­wigs Karl Rove and Grover Norquist, one of the rea­sons for the cur­tail­ment of the inves­ti­ga­tion may be Nick Kaiser.

Yes, that’s Nick Kaiser of THE Kaisers, as in Kaiser Hos­pi­tals, Kaiser Per­ma­nente, ship­build­ing, etc.

Nick Kaiser part­nered with Yaqub Mirza in set­ting up Islam­ic equi­ty enti­ties. (There is no indi­ca­tion that Kaiser is involved in ter­ror­ist fund­ing. Peo­ple and insti­tu­tions asso­ci­at­ed with his milieu were.)

All of which goes to show that pow­er will be served. The U.S. is under the Gold­en Rule–he who has gold rules. Does­n’t mat­ter if you fund ter­ror­ism, if you’re rich and Repub­li­can, you’re in like Fly­nn.

“Invest­ing for Hajj: Ear­ly Bird Finan­cial Plan­ning” by Dr. M. Yaqub Mirza; Amana Mutu­al Funds Trust.

EXCERPT: Investors in 1984, the North Amer­i­can Islam­ic Trust (NAIT) approached Nick Kaiser, an expe­ri­enced mutu­al fund man­ag­er in Indi­anapo­lis with the idea that Islam­ic investors had needs that were not being met. Kaiser, now pres­i­dent of Sat­ur­na Cap­i­tal Cor­po­ra­tion, worked with NAIT to start the first fund in North Amer­i­ca specif­i­cal­ly designed to meet the needs of the Mus­lim investor – the Amana Income Fund. A sec­ond port­fo­lio, the Amana Growth Fund, began oper­a­tions in 1994. A third port­fo­lio, the Amana Devel­op­ing World Fund, began oper­a­tions in 2009.

Today, the three Amana Funds rep­re­sent over $2 Bil­lion invest­ed accord­ing to the prin­ci­ples of sharia. Sat­ur­na Cap­i­tal is the invest­ment advis­er of the Fund and makes the dai­ly invest­ment selec­tions. Eight Amana trustees make the major deci­sions about oper­a­tions of the Fund, review actions of the invest­ment advis­er, and set invest­ment poli­cies. . . .

COMMENT: Kaiser’s Sat­ur­na is part­ner­ing with an Aus­tralian group that has strong con­nec­tions to the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood.

“U.S. and Aus­tralian Firms Part­ner to Issue New Islam­ic Equi­ty Fund”; The Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood Dai­ly Report; 2/24/2012.

EXCERPT: Region­al media is report­ing that Sat­ur­na Cap­i­tal, a U.S. Islam­ic invest­ment firm with strong ties to the Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, has entered into an agree­ment with an Aus­tralian “Islam­ic wealth man­ag­er” with its own ties to the Aus­tralian Mus­lim Broth­er­hood in a con­nec­tion with a new Islam­ic equi­ty fund to be launched in Aus­tralia lat­er this year. Accord­ing to the report:

Cres­cent Wealth, Australia’s first Islam­ic wealth man­ag­er, announced on Thurs­day that it has entered into an agree­ment with Sat­ur­na Sdn Bhd (a whol­ly-owned sub­sidiary of US based Sat­ur­na Cap­i­tal) to act as the port­fo­lio man­ag­er to the Cres­cent Inter­na­tion­al Equi­ty Fund to be launched lat­er this year. . . .
