Dr. Benjamin Carson captivated the media's attention with his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, but another attendee deserved some of the spotlight: Sayyid Syeed, the interfaith liaison for the Islamic Society of North America, who was recorded in 2006 saying, "[O]ur job is to change the constitution of America."
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) originates in the Muslim Brotherhood, but has been embraced on a bi-partisan basis. FBI sources reporting back to the mid-1980s identified it as a Brotherhood front. In 2007, the U.S. government designated ISNA an unindicted co-conspirator in the terrorism-financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation, listing it as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity.
A 1991 Brotherhood memo, which describes its "work in America as a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within," likewise mentions ISNA and several of its components as its fronts. In 2009, a federal judge upheld ISNA's designation as an unindicted co-conspirator because of "ample" evidence linking it to Hamas.
