Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to deliver a keynote address at the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy. Other keynote speakers include U.S. Representative Keith Ellison (D - Minn.) - who has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood - and John Esposito, who supports the Muslim Brotherhood. Douglas Farah writes that Esposito "has at least a dozen past or present affiliations with global Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas organizations."
Also participating in the conference is Kemal Helbawy, a leader in the global Muslim Brotherhood who has defended the terrorist targeting of Israeli children. Helbawy was banned from entering the U.S. in 2006.
