Wajahat Ali was one of the five authors of the hard-Left Soros-funded Center for American Progress’s attack piece “Fear, Inc.,” a supposed takedown of “Islamophobes” including Steven Emerson, David Yerushalmi, Daniel Pipes, Frank Gaffney and me. My responses are here and here; Daniel Greenfield and Mark Tapson also expose the sinister agenda and propagandistic, truth-free nature of the report. Daniel Pipes shows here that the amounts the report says that he has received from donors are inaccurate, and that the CAP takes in almost as much in one year as it excoriates the “Islamophobes” in several different organizations from receiving over a period of nine years.
And now there is something new. Wajahat Ali reveals in the video above (thanks to Larry) that he was a Board member of the Muslim Students Association. The Muslim Students Association was established by members of the Muslim Brotherhood. In “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America,” by Mohamed Akram, May 19, 1991, the MSA is listed as one of the Brotherhood’s allied organizations. And the memorandum explains that the Brotherhood’s agenda in the U.S. is subversive: the Muslim Brothers “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
Might the CAP’s attempt to discredit and marginalize all who are standing up to jihad activity in all its forms be part of the larger effort of “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within”? In a sane world, journalists would be challenging Wajahat Ali with just that question. But none of them will.
