The Muslim American Society, which federal prosecutors confirm was "founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America," is boasting on its new website of how it's been embraced by the U.S. government and major interfaith groups. This is shocking, especially since the reaction of MAS to Bin Laden's death was to defend his goal of creating an Islamic state in Afghanistan.
The renovated MAS website emphasizes its work with law enforcement, the federal government, members of Congress, charities and interfaith organizations. Unlike its previous website, it does not try to address questions about its links to the Muslim Brotherhood and beliefs about the Caliphate and sharia in America.
There is little dispute that MAS is a Muslim Brotherhood entity. A Chicago Tribune investigation in 2004 confirmed it, as did senior U.S. Muslim Brotherhood operative Abdurrahman Alamoudi after he was convicted on terrorism-related charges. In 2012, he testified, "Everyone knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood."
