Islamist Money in Politics
Donor-Affiliated Organization: North American Islamic Trust (NAIT)
The North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) describes itself as a wakf, or Islamic trust for the perpetual endowment of mosques, Islamic schools, and communal institutions. In practice, it does not merely endow these institutions, but exerts ideological control to enforce its brand of extremist Islamism. NAIT was mentioned in the famous 1991 "Explanatory Memorandum" by Mohammed Akram, a leading officer of the Muslim Brotherhood, where it was described as a Brotherhood-allied organization.
Total amount of donations listed above: $65,685
