On his radio show today, Glenn Beck interviewed Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, a practicing Muslim and president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy. Jasser and Beck discussed the video that the Tatler released on Saturday, of American Conservative Union board member Suhail Khan’s remark that there is no Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. Beck asked Jasser if Khan is wrong about the Muslim Brotherhood having a presence in the US.
“Absolutely. I mean, if you look at any ‑‑ anybody that looks at any of the work being done, whether it was the Holy Land Foundation that showed a whole nexus, our documentary, the Third Jihad [which] talked about the documents that were demonstrated from 1991 that showed a whole Nexus of operating organizations that were founded by members that came out of the brotherhood, out of Egypt and out of the Middle East,” Dr. Jasser said.
“The brotherhood is much more than the brotherhood. It’s the ideology of political Islam. It’s a mixture of mosques and states. It’s the desire to establish Islamic statism and put Sharia law into government,” Dr. Jasser said.
“[Khan] just wants us to accept it on face value that he’s a conservative and he’s all about Western ideals when, in fact, talked about American ideals, talk about Egypt, talk about other things. He never identifies the brotherhood as a threat and that to me is a problem for somebody who’s an avowed conservative.”
