This is a quintessential example of how thoroughly corrupt and compromised American academia really is, particularly in fields relating to the Middle East and Islam.
In 2008 Ellison accepted $13,350 from the Muslim American Society (MAS) to go on a pilgrimage to Mecca. The Muslim American Society is a Muslim Brotherhood organization: “In recent years, the U.S. Brotherhood operated under the name Muslim American Society, according to documents and interviews. One of the nation’s major Islamic groups, it was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 after a contentious debate among Brotherhood members.” That’s from the Chicago Tribune in 2004, in an article that is now carried on the Muslim Brotherhood’s English-language website, Ikhwanweb. The Muslim American Society, according to Steven Emerson, director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, “is the de facto arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. The agenda of the MAS is to “¦ impose Islamic law in the U.S., to undermine U.S. counterterrorism policy.”
I am confident that the thuggish and neo-fascist editor-in-chief of Reza Aslan’s Aslan Media will be at this event, excitedly taking notes on the Nazi’s talk. Ramy Jan, by the way, is a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood. “Georgetown University to Host Member of Egypt’s Nazi Party,” by Adam Kredo for the Washington Free Beacon, November 19:
Georgetown University is scheduled to host an event on Egypt that features a member of Egypt’s Nazi Party.
Georgetown University”s Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal Center for Christian Muslim Understanding is scheduled to host a Dec. 5 event on “Egypt and the Struggle for Democracy.”
The event features a slew of speakers sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as Coptic Christian Ramy Jan, who cut his teethÂ on the Egyptian political scene as a member of the country”s Nazi Party, according to multiple sources.
The event is scheduled to take place all day at Georgetown’s ICC auditorium and feature a keynote address by Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.).
In addition to Jan, a who’s who of Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated speakers are scheduled to be flown in from Egypt to attend and participate in the forum, which includes multiple panel discussion about Egypt’s recent coup and the current state of the country”s democracy.
Egypt experts criticized both Georgetown and event organizers for holding an event that will primarily feature pro-Muslim Brotherhood propaganda under the guise of free and open discussion.
They also expressed surprise at the inclusion of Nazi Party member Jan, who was featured in a 2011 documentary on the Nazi Party”s “pursuit of world supremacy for the Egyptian race.”
“Several businessmen want to finance us, and we have to choose between them,” Jan told interviewers in Arabic, according to a translation of his remarks by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
“We do not recognize the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel,” Jan said before explaining his desire for Egypt to build a nuclear reactor.
“We want to build an Egyptian nuclear reactor””a reactor that will be built by Egyptians and will have Egyptian components,” he said. “All Egyptians will unite around this national project.”
Egypt’s Nazi Party is very small and comprised of only a few key members, including Jan.
