An estimated 2,200 new Transportation Security Officers sent to work at the Los Angeles International Airport received their on-the-job training from officials with the Muslim Public Affairs Council, a group that’s tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, a radical organization with terror ties and global Sharia intent.
Human Events reported the training, citing a press release on the MPAC’s own website:
“The MPAC release notes that the two-month training course informed officers of ‘the diversity of Muslims around the world from cultural dress to language to tenets. The four trainers taught the TSOs how to properly handle a Quran and discussed the different ways Muslim women and men choose to cover or dress. For example, the TSOs learned if a woman wears hijab and needs a secondary screening she should be screened in a private area by a female TSO officer.'”Isn’t that a bit like putting the fox in charge of the henhouse?
MPAC was created in 1986 as a political mouthpiece for the Islamic Center for Southern California, one of America’s largest Wahhabi mosques.
Human Events fills in the details:
“As the Center for Security Policy’s Team B II report entitled ‘Sharia: The Threat to America’ notes, ‘The founders of the Islamic Center for Southern California are Hassan Hathout and his brother Maher Hathout. The late Hassan Hathout was a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood Movement. The two brothers Maher spent time in an Egyptian prison during the early days of the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities there, led by the Brotherhood’s founder Hassan Al Banna. MPAC’s own publication, The Minaret, has proudly called Hassan a ‘companion of’ and Maher ‘a close disciple of’ Brotherhood founder Hassan al Banna.’There are more important links and ties. But the gist is this, again from Human Events:
“Maher Hathout also founded and is currently a senior advisor for MPAC. He and others at MPAC also currently work for and maintain a close relationship with the Islamic Center of Southern California.
“Hathout was also on the board of directors and a member of the American Muslim Council (AMC) from 1993 to 1997. AMC was founded by the al Qaeda financier and Hamas operative Abdurahman Alamoudi who is currently serving 23 years in prison for funding terrorist groups including al Qaeda.
“Maher Hathout served on the AMC Board of Directors at the same time Alamoudi was serving as its Executive Director.
“‘Maher Hathout has publicly voiced his approval of Designated Terrorist Organizations such as Hezbollah; decried many U.S. counterterrorism efforts; called for the destruction of Israel; and, openly supported known terrorists such as Hasan al Turabi, the leader of the National Islamic Front of Sudan. Yet, the organization he founded, MPAC, enjoys a reputation in official U.S. circles as a ‘moderate’ Muslim organization,’ the Team B II report states.”
“MPAC works as a propaganda and misinformation ministry for the Muslim Brotherhood. One example offered in the Team B II Report is its aggressive and successful pursuit of total control of the language used by the United States government in regard to Muslim terrorists.”It was MPAC that took umbrage at the language in the 9/11 Commission Report used to describe the terror events as they unfolded. It was MPAC that demanded America stop using words like jihad, caliphate, sharia and ummah to describe terrorism and terror groups’ goals. And MPAC was successful in his quest for censorship of truth.
As Human Events notes, citing the same report:
“‘In subsequent years, the National Counterterrorism Center, the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have all issued strategic counterterrorism documents devoid of these terms. Such conformity to shariah by U.S. government entities such as the FBI and DHS is an extraordinary strategic victory for the enemy in the information battlespace.'”And if you want to know more about the ties between MPAC and terror groups, here’s a full report: “Beyond the Facade: The Muslim Public Affairs Council.”
