At the end of last month, FrontPage Magazine published an article written by this author about how a leader from the Islamic Circle of North America, Abdul Rauf Khan, has been using social media to spread extremely controversial content. At issue was a post from Khan targeting homosexuals, produced by an organization that promotes the banned Hizb-ut-Tahrir. The article must have created a problem for Khan, as shortly after its release, he removed the vast majority of his Facebook page. But while he could hide his radical activities, he cannot hide the fact that he and his group exist, in part, to further the spread of terror and violence throughout the world.
The Islamic Circle of North America or ICNA was founded in September 1968 as the American affiliate of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), South Asia's largest Islamist group.
