The annual joint conference of the Islamic Circle of North America and the Muslim American Society brings together Islamist preachers and devotees from around the country. This year's event had a special keynote speaker: Illinois Governor Pat Quinn.
ICNA is a derivative of the radical Jamaat-e-Islami group in Pakistan. An internal U.S. Muslim Brotherhood document shows that Jamaat-e-Islami is closely affiliated with ICNA.
ICNA is currently investing its time condemning the Egyptian and Bangladeshi governments for their crackdowns on the Muslim Brotherhood and Jamaat-e-Islami.
