Last August I reported here at Pajamas Media on the long line of Muslim Student Association chapter and national leaders who have been charged and convicted in terror plots – including Al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki (former MSA president at Colorado State Univ.).
Now Erick Stakelbeck at CBN News follows up today with his report, “Muslim Student Group a Gateway to Jihad?”:
The Muslim Students Association, or MSA, is one of the largest Islamic organizations in America, with chapters on hundreds of college campuses. It’s alumni include doctors, lawyers and engineers.
But the group has another track record that it doesn’t advertise: several of its leaders have been convicted of terrorism, prompting some terror experts to call the MSA a recruiting tool for jihad.
Although many Muslim and liberal groups complained about recent congressional hearings on homegrown Islamic radicalism, American-born Muslims are behind a growing number of terror plots — a trend that Attorney General Eric Holder has said keeps him “up at night.”
Many of these homegrown jihadists once belonged to the MSA, which has thousands of members on college campuses throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Oh, yeah, I’m in there too. Watch the whole report at the link.
