Rashad Hussain, President Obama's special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), will join representatives of Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations at a Chicago conference next week. Hussain will join Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), on a panel discussing OIC relations with American Muslims.
Rehab is not the only conference speaker associated with the Muslim Brotherhood. Others scheduled to address the conference include John Esposito, an academic sympathetic with the Brotherhood, and Safaa Zarzour, Secretary General of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).
ISNA was founded by Muslim Brotherhood members in the United States. And CAIR was linked in court papers to a Brotherhood-organized Hamas-support effort.
