Ohio State and the Muslim Brotherhood By: Patrick Poole
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, October 16, 2008

It’s October, and the leaves are beginning to turn around the campus of the Ohio State University. But as predictably as falling leaves turn the green grass of the Oval brown, Islamofascism flowers into full bloom on the Ohio State campus just in time for the third Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week.


And this time, Ohio State students are footing the bill.


The event in question is a Ramadan celebration hosted by the newly-formed OSU chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS) – paid for out of Student Activity Fund fees. The OSU-MAS “Reflections on Ramadan” event promised to “provide a chance for students to celebrate and reflect on the month of Ramadan and how it's celebrated among students locally and internationally”.


What the Ohio State Union website failed to mention, however, is that federal prosecutors stated in an appeals court brief last December that MAS was “founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America”. The prosecutors also observed that the Muslim Brotherhood’s credo states that:

Allah is our goal

The Qur'an is our constitution

The Prophet is our leader

Jihad is our way

and death in the path of Allah is our highest goal

The Chicago Tribune published an extensive investigative report in September 2004 documenting MAS’s origins and leadership from the international Muslim Brotherhood network.


As the active arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been the ideological incubator for virtually every single Islamic terrorist organization, from HAMAS to Al-Qaeda, MAS has boldly followed in the footsteps of its parent.


Take, for example, how MAS President Esam Omeish was forced to resign from the Virginia Commission on Immigration after video emerged of Omeish calling for jihad at a December 2000 rally. Also consider the video of MAS Freedom Foundation head Mahdi Bray cheering as now-convicted terrorist leader and Al-Qaeda fundraiser Abdirahman Alamoudi led a crowd in cheering the HAMAS and Hezbollah terrorist organizations.


This is hardly the first appearance of university-funded Islamofascism at Ohio State. In fact, during the first Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week last October, the OSU chapters of the Muslim Student Association (MSA) and Council on American-Islamic Relations co-hosted prominent Muslim Brotherhood leader and wife-beating advocate, Jamal Badawi, as I reported here at FrontPage. That event was sponsored by the Ohio State Multicultural Center.


In fact, Islamofascism has a long history at Ohio State:


  • Just three months after the 9/11 attacks in December 2001, the Associated Press reported that the OSU-MSA was under federal investigation for its MSA News email list that regularly published news releases by a whole host of Islamic terrorist organizations, including Al-Qaeda; was the primary source for Osama bin Laden’s published statements; and also for encouraging readers to purchase videos from a terrorist support website.
  • In October 2002, now-convicted Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami Al-Arian appeared on campus and at an OSU-MSA rally.
  • In November 2003, Ohio State hosted the Third National Conference on Palestinian Solidarity, at which Al-Arian was supposed to appear, but couldn’t attend since he had been indicted on terrorism charges and was sitting in federal prison.
  • In February 2006, at the same time that federal agents were raiding its offices and the US Treasury Department was freezing its assets, Islamic terror charity Kindhearts co-sponsored a weeklong Islamic “Leaders of Tomorrow” conference at Ohio State for the OSU-MSA.
  • And as I reported here at FrontPage this past May, international hate-sheikh Khalid Yasin made an evening appearance at Ohio State on his weeklong tour through the Columbus area, spreading his virulent brand of Islamic hatred.


Now, the financial support by Ohio State students of day-long Muslim Brotherhood Ramadan events can be added to the list.


Happy Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week!
