Terrorist apologists and their allies wrapped themselves in civil rights rhetoric on Capitol Hill last week for the 4th Annual National Muslim Advocacy Day, sponsored by the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO).
The USCMO acts as an umbrella organization, coordinating activities of major Islamist organizations including the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), among others.
CAIR and MAS have direct connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, which seeks to incorporate religious law into secular society. ICNA has a historical connection with Jamaat-e-Islami, the oldest Islamist group in South Asia, which aims to create an Islamic society and state.
Egyptian Americans for Freedom and Justice (EAFJ), a more openly Muslim Brotherhood support group, piggy-backed on the USCMO event to engage in its own lobbying effort. To read more about that, click here.
