Communism is Not the Only Cancer on U.S. Campuses

by John D. Guandolo

On nearly every major college and university campus in America, including at “christian” colleges, jihadis have planted dangerous outposts to recruit jihadis, perpetuate hostile information operations, and grow the jihadi Movement.

These “outposts” are called Muslim Students Associations or MSA’s.

There well over 900 MSA chapters in the United States, including on high school campuses.

Key Points

  1. The Muslim Students Association (MSA) was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood whose objectives are the same as ISIS and Al Qaeda.
  2. The designated Foreign Terrorist Organization HAMAS is an inherent part of the Muslim Brotherhood.
  3. Muslim Brotherhood leaders are directly tied to terrorism and designated terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda, Hamas, and others. See the Senate bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a Foreign Terrorist Organization HERE.
  4. Not surprisingly, many MSA leaders and officials are terrorists.

Founding the MSA

The Muslim Students Association (MSA) was founded by the most prominent and powerful Muslim Brotherhood leaders in America at the time – Jamal Barzini, Hisham al-Talib and Ahmed Totanji – on the campus of the University of Illinois (Urbana) in 1962.

  1. Jamal Barzinji is considered the “Godfather” of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood because of his significant jihadi leadership over many decades. Barzinji founded many of the key Muslim Brotherhood jihadi organizations in America including the Dar al Hijra Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia, which is one of the most prolific terrorist mosques in North America. See UTT’s video on Dar al Hijra HERE.
  2. Hisham Al Talib was a co-founder of the SAAR Foundation, an organization dissolved in 2000 when it became the target of an FBI investigation for providing funding to the terrorist groups Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Al Qaeda.

FBI Raid at Home of Key Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas Operative

In August of 2004, the FBI raided the home of Ismail Elbarasse, who was a bagman for the terrorist group Hamas in the United States, and who worked directly for the leader of Hamas in America at the time Musa Abu Marzook.

The archives of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood in America were discovered during this search.

Numerous Muslim Brotherhood historical documents, strategic and operational plans, lists of organizations and leaders, financial records, photographs, videos, audio recordings and much more were discovered.

Much of this was entered into evidence in the largest terrorism financing trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history – US v Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (“HLF”), Northern District of Texas (Dallas), 2008.

History of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Jihad in America

One document in evidence is the transcript of a speech given by Zaid al Naman to a group of Muslim Brothers in Missouri in 1982.

Zaid al Naman was a Member of the Board of Directors for the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

The transcript comes from an audio recording of his speech in which Al Naman spends much of the talk discussing the history of the Muslim Brotherhood in America, including jihadi training in the United States, how to counter the CIA, FBI and others, and related issues.

Al Naman also reviewed the history of the Muslim Brotherhood’s ongoing takeover of America which began with the creation of the Muslim Students Association.

As a refresher, the stated objective of the Muslim Brotherhood is to wage jihad in order to impose “allah’s divine law”/sharia on every human on earth while overthrowing all un-Islamic governments to create a worldwide Islamic State or “Caliphate.”

Although much has been whitewashed from their current website, historical captures of MSA’s website reveals they openly admit the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) was the second generation of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Movement in North America following the MSA. See that web capture HERE.

Evidence in the US v HLF trial reveals ISNA is a Muslim Brotherhood organization which directly funds the terrorist group Hamas.

MSA’s Leaders Are Terrorists/Jihadis

Many MSA leaders and members are overt terrorists. Here are just a few. Note that many of them are senior MSA leaders, which is not accidental since the MSA is a jihadi (“Terrorist”) organization.

Al Qaeda Attack on New York in 2001. Numerous Al Qaeda operatives have been MSA leaders.

  16. Syed Maaz Shah – MSA Secretary at the University of Texas – Dallas. Shah was convicted on weapons charges in 2007, as he was involved with other jihadis in paramilitary training in preparation for join the Taliban to fight U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Despite the overwhelming evidence as to the founding, objectives, and true nature of the Muslim Students Association and its leaders, Federal, state, and local law enforcement have done nothing. University Presidents have done nothing.

Meanwhile, media outlets, like the Huffington Post, dutifully laud the MSA’s as great places of tolerance and diversity.

As usual, Patriots need to lawfully and aggressively take action in their local communities to shut these MSA’s down. Getting major donors to stop donating until the universities and colleges cut these jihadi cancers off campus is a good starting point.

  1. All, this nations’ “lighthouse” is helping enemy ships navigate safely to our shores; those responsible for manning the lighthouse, not the enemy ships should be our focus.

  2. John, you omitted any reference to the MSA offshoot: Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) which is a force for intimidation and militancy on many campuses.

  3. I have printed this article so I can bring the information to enlighten the uninformed public, thank you JG… John Rich, “Progress”; put your progress in the dark hole.
