Mohamed Magid, Barack Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood

mohamed magidLaurie Goodstein wrote an article entitled “U.S. Muslims Take on ISIS’ Recruiting Machine” which was published by the New York Times on February 19, 2015.

Mohamed Magid is the imam and the spiritual leader at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society in Sterling, Virginia and an advisor to the White House and a multitude of federal departments. He has met with the president several times. The Sudanese-born Magid (aka Hagmagid Ali) is also president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) a terror-supporting organization and known front group for the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood’s operations in America.

Goodstein praised Imam Mohamed Magid for trying to stop five young men from being recruited by the Islamic State, also called ISIS and ISIL. She described him in a very positive light and said that “the imam is a scholar bursting with charm and authority”. She explained on February 18, 2015 that President Obama stated during the White House conference on violent extremist (which lasted three days) that the fight against extremism as a “generational challenge” that would require the cooperation of governments, religious leaders, educators and law enforcement. The president called on more than 60 nations to join the effort.

Inexplicably, the FBI director was not invited to this conference, even though his Russian counterpart came. This surprised this author since the FBI has as its main responsibity counter terrorism. It raises the question on just how serious is Obama in defeating Islamic radicalism or Islamic extremist, (which are terms the president has prohibited members of his administration to use). Among the incredible discussions an official of the State Department said that to fight the Islamic State, the United States needs to find jobs for the terrorists. On what planet do these people live?

Goodstein pointed out that Imam Magid is in regular communication with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies to counter violent extremism. The reporter, like the president, does not say Islamic extremism. She noted that officials estimate that about 150 Americans have traveled, or tried to travel, to fight in Syria. This number is less than in France, where 1,000 people are estimated to have gone to Syria, or England, which has counted about 600. Imam Magid said that in addition to those he had talked out of going, he knew of one young Muslim from Virginia who recently left to join the Islamic State in Syria.

Goodstein said that Imam Magid stated that “Real prevention meant programs that give young people as much purpose and inspiration as extremists promise. Once young Muslims buy into the ideology, it is very hard to pry them loose. You have to reach them before it happens.”

The article by Goodstein featured a picture of Imam Magid on the front page of the New York Times and below it said “Imam Mohamed Magid of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society fights against ISIS recruitment.” On page A-11 another picture of Imam Magid appeared and below it said “Imam Magid has persuaded five young men to abandon plans to fight overseas.”


Who is this Islamic “hero” Imam Mohamed Magid which the New York Times and other media lavish so much praise as a moderate?

DiscoverTheNetwork did an article on Mohamed Magid on February 21, 2015. It explained that Magid accused the Bush administration of waging a “war against Islam and Muslims.” Magid said that media references to jihad as “holy war” constitute a “misuse” of that term.

President Obama named Magid as an advisor to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2011 where the imam insisted that DHS erase from its “Countering Violent Extremism” curriculum any suggestion that Muslim terrorism draws its inspiration from the laws and doctrines of Islam. The Imam Magid, similar to Obama who is a hidden radical Muslim, is making this false claim. Magid was authorized to train and advice personnel in the FBI and other federal agencies. Obama invited Magid many times to meet with him in the White House, and soon became the most influential and sought-after Muslim authority of the Obama administration.

President Obama with Imam Magid

President Obama has always defended the information suppression advocated by the Muslim Brotherhood and by Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIS) made up of 57 Muslim nations. The OIS want the Western countries to criminalize any individual who criticizes Islam or its prophet even though the U.S. Constitution and that of the Western nations provide for freedom of speech and freedom of the press.

It was incredible that Obama told the United Nations that “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Telling the truth about the life Prophet Mohammad as a warrior who killed thousands of Arabs and others who did not want to convert to Islam is not slander. Regardless of what Obama told the United Nations, in the United States we have the right to say whatever we want of any religion or its leaders. And yes, the future in spite of what this Marxist and hidden radical Muslim in the White House says to the United Nations does belong to all Americans.

Supported strongly by Obama in his new DHS role, Magid requested the then radical leftist Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, now Secretary of the Labor Department, to allow him to meet regularly with top Justice Department officials and FBI agents. Imam Magid began to reeducate Justice Department and FBI agents on Islam and its followers. Any criticism of Islam or objective analysis of the Quran was forbidden as Imam Magid characterized it as “religious bigotry and hate.” Even worse, Magid and other Muslims demanded government officials to ban the practice, at airports, of conducting the extra security checks on passengers traveling from a number of Islamic countries. This practice had been instituted since a Nigerian Islamic terrorist tried to blow up a passenger plane flying over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009. The Islamic terrorist was labeled the shoe bomber.

Sadly, the Obama administration support for Magid, who is a Muslim Brotherhood operative disguised as a moderate Muslim, led to DHS to carefully sanitizing from its “Countering Violent Extremism” curriculum any suggestion that Muslim terrorism draws its inspiration from the laws and doctrines of Islam as stated earlier.

DiscoverTheNetwork pointed out that in 2012 the FBI purged some 700 documents and 300 presentations from its training materials and lesson plans. On March 8, 2013, Magid and ten religious leaders met with President Obama for a 90-minute conversation about immigration reform. Also present at the meeting was senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, who was born in Iran and whose grandfather was a communist as well as her father-in-law Vernon Jarrett. Three days later, Magid took part in a meeting with Obama where the president listened to “recommendations designed to help him prepare for his upcoming diplomacy trip to the Middle East.”

Previously, Magid had met with Obama in the White House the day before the president gave an important speech to officials of the Department of State. The next day Magid was invited to the Department of State to hear President Barack Obama’s speech where he stated for the very first time of any U.S. president that Israel needed to go back to the pre-1967 boundaries. This means that Israel must return the Golan Heights to Syria and a half of the country to Jordan. This, of course, has been a long term objective of the Muslim Brotherhood and its political party of Hamas in Gaza.

It is quite obvious that the president is receiving advice and promoting the views of the members of the Muslim Brotherhood which he has allowed to infiltrate thoroughly his administration. In addition to his DHS work, Magid has also served as with the National Security Council and has been a member of the FBI’s Muslim, Sikh, and Arab Advisory Board.

The Muslim Brotherhood first step in the conquest of our nation and the West is information suppression. President Obama is aiding and abetting this suppression of the truth about his own hidden faith Islam by having the manuals of the Pentagon, Justice Department, DHS, CIA, FBI, and other federal agencies remove any criticism or objective evaluation of Islam. This action endangers our national security and has been denounced by retired admirals and generals.

Imam Magid was born in northern Sudan in 1965. The Muslim Brotherhood regime of Sudan has assassinated over 400,000 Christians. Shoebat reported that Malik Obama, President Barack Obama’s half-brother is the Executive Secretary of the Islamic Da´wa Organization (IDO) of Sudan as reported by all major Saudi Arabia media. The IDO was created by the government of Sudan, a nation which is considered by the State Department as a terrorist nation. It is incredible that the president’s brother, Malik Obama, is working as an official of an organization in the worst terrorist Muslim Brotherhood-controlled country in the world!

The Muslim Brotherhood bloody dictator of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, is wanted by the International Criminal Court (ICC) on seven counts relating to crimes against humanity. The government of Sudan has been committing genocide and crimes against humanity for a number of years against the Christian population in the southern part of that country. Christian women are being raped and Christian children are being kidnapped and forced to live with Muslim families in the Islamic part of the country. This is exactly the same thing that the Islamic State Caliphate is doing today in Iraq and Syria.

Shoebat pointed out that Malik Obama’s boss, Suar Al Dahab, is expressing solidarity with both a person who heads Hamas, an organization the U.S. State Department has identified as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, and with Yusuf Al-Qaradawi who thinks Hitler did not finish the job when it came to the Jews.

Malik best man at Barack's wedding.

President Barack Obama and his brother Malik are very close. Each was the best man at the other’s wedding and Malik has made multiple visits to the White House.

Did Malik Obama and Mohamed Magid meet in Sudan? It would be very interesting to find that out.

DiscoverTheNetwork explained that Mohamed Magid studied Islam under African Sunni scholars, one of whom was his own father, the Grand Mufti of Sudan. In 1987 Magid immigrated to the United States. Magid took university courses in psychology and family counseling, and he taught classes on the Quran at Howard University in Washington, DC.  In 1997 Magid was appointed imam of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), a mosque located in Sterling, Virginia. Later Magid joined ISNA and he rose from East Zone representative to vice president, and finally as president. He was elected president of ISNA in September 2010. Currently Magid continues to head both ISNA and ADAMS.

DiscoverTheNetwork said that In March 2002, federal agents raided the premises of many northern-Virginia-based Muslim organizations, including ADAMS, on suspicion that they were providing material support to terrorists. This initiative was the largest investigation of terror-financing ever conducted anywhere in the world. Soon after the raids had been completed, Magid held a public meeting in the town of Sterling, where he encouraged “community building” among the groups that were being investigated. To this meeting, he invited many radical Muslims, among them Nihad Awad the pro-Hamas executive director of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Awad told the angry group: “This is a war against Islam and Muslims. Our administration [the Bush administration] has the burden of proving otherwise.”

In spite of Magid heading ISNA, the largest Muslim Brotherhood front organization and coming from the Muslim Brotherhood country of Sudan that has killed approximately 400,000 Christian Sudanese and his combative track record, Magid is seen in media and political circles as a moderate Muslim. As explained in the article of DiscoverTheNetwork, the Huffington Post called Magid “America’s Iman.” In 2005 Time magazine published a lengthy profile of Magid, indicating that he was as a voice of moderation and explaining that he works closely with the FBI. The article in Time magazine explained that Magid “regularly opens doors for FBI agents trying to cultivate contacts in his Muslim community,” and “alerts the bureau when suspicious persons approach his congregation.”

DiscoverTheNetwork explained that in 2005, Magid’s mosque ADAMS website showed a list of speakers who had recently appeared at the mosque. Among these individuals were “ADAMS chairman Ahmed Tontonii, who was indicted in Operation Green Quest and was named as a defendant in a $1 trillion lawsuit filed by more than 600 surviving relatives of victims who had died in the 9/11 attacks, and Johari Abdul Malik, an Imam who had defended numerous Islamic radical and terrorist figures.”

The White House continues to praise him and Mohammed Magid in spite of his being a radical operative of the Muslim Brotherhood

WND published an article entitled “White House official praises Muslim Brotherhood leader” on March 8, 2011.

The WND article explained that Deputy National Security Adviser Denis
McDonough while visiting the All Dulles Area Muslim Society in Sterling, Virginia in the Washington area lavished praise on Imam Magid, who happens to be a top leader of the radical Muslim Brotherhood in America. One FBI veteran said regarding the White House, “They are so ignorant, this is unbelievable bullsh–.”

WND pointed out that during his speech at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society in Sterling, Va., McDonough singled out the mosque’s imam, Mohammed Magid, for praise. He stated the following: “Thank you, Imam Magid, for your very kind introduction. I know that President Obama was very grateful that you led the prayer at last summer¹s Iftar dinner (dinner at the end of Ramadan) at the White House. Thank you, also, for being one of our nation’s leading voices for the values that make America so strong, especially religious freedom and tolerance.”

As stated earlier, the Sudanese-born Magid (aka Hagmagid Ali) is also president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) a terror-supporting organization and known front group for the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood’s operations in America.


WND explained that the Justice Department recently implicated the Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA, in a criminal conspiracy to fund Palestinian terrorists. U.S. prosecutors, in fact, designated ISNA as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-finance case in U.S. history, the Holy Land Foundation trial. They also identified ISNA as a U.S. front group for Hamas and its parent the Muslim Brotherhood.


The federal judge ruled the government provided “ample evidence” to support ISNA’s involvement in the foundation’s conspiracy to underwrite terrorism, and he refused ISNA’s petition to remove its name from the list of co-conspirators.

Magid’s father, a Cairo-educated, Muslim Brotherhood scholar, has served as Grand Mufti of Sudan, an al-Qaida hotspot. Speaking at the ADAMS Center, one of the largest Islamic centers in the Washington area, McDonough said, “This is a typically American place.”

WND explained that FBI investigators stated that this ADAMS mosque is a Muslim Brotherhood-controlled property. It has been cited for distributing hate literature and oppressing women. Last decade, ADAMS was singled out by the Freedom House as one of the top distributors of Saudi-sponsored anti-Semitic and anti-Christian dogma. The mosque’s board of directors includes key Muslim Brotherhood figures in America. “I’m sure McDonough doesn’t know that the chairman of the board at ADAMS is Ahmed Totonji, one of the original Brothers in the U.S.,” said the FBI official in Washington.

According to the book, Infiltration: How Muslim Spies and Subversives have Penetrated Washington (2008) by Paul Sperry, federal investigators have uncovered hundreds of thousands of dollars in checks endorsed to ADAMS by Muslim Brotherhood leaders and organizations whose offices were raided after 9/11. The book quotes a longtime ADAMS Center member who said that all Muslims are united in a kind of blood pact under the “ummah,” the worldwide Muslim Brotherhood. “If you hurt one Muslim anywhere in the world,” the man said, “it’s like hurting all Muslims.” And the Brothers will respond in kind, even if that means self-immolation on the streets of America.

Paul Sperry explained in his book that this individual stated that “Muslims are not afraid to die.” Asked his opinion of Osama bin Laden, he replied: “We do respect him.” Why? Because he stands against “injustice and oppression,” explained the man, who works for a Beltway contractor. And even though he’s rich, bin Laden shuns palaces and walks the true walk of Islam, he added – unlike the Saudi monarchs, whom he referred to as “hypocrites.”

WND said that at the end his speech, McDonough encouraged the mosque and its leaders to continue “their efforts to strengthen cooperation between Muslim communities and law enforcement.” White House sources point out that Magid and ADAMS have also been recognized by the FBI and Homeland Security as outreach partners.

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)

According to Wikipedia the Islamic Society of North America is based in Plainfield, Indiana. It is the largest Muslim organization in North America.

ISNA has its origins during a meeting in January 1963 of several Muslim student organizations including the very powerful Muslim Student Association (MSA), which is a Muslim Brotherhood front and has chapters in universities in the United States and Canada. ISNA regards the MSA’s 1963 convention as its first one, held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The article in Wikipedia stated that ISNA was founded in 1982 through a joint effort of four organizations: The Muslim Students Association of the U.S. and Canada, Islamic Medical Association (IMA), the Association of Muslim Social Scientists (AMSS), and the Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers (AMSE). Many of the leaders of these four founding organizations took leadership roles in the newly formed ISNA. In 1983, ISNA completed a $21 million headquarters complex in Indianapolis using funds raised in part from international sources.

Interior of ISNA building

Wikipedia explained that ISNA holds an annual national convention, which is generally regarded as the largest gathering of American Muslims in the United States. In the last few years, it has been held in Chicago, Illinois, with increasing numbers attending including people from outside of North America. The convention features Islamic lectures, discussions, and debates.

As you would expect the Obama administration has a close connection with this Muslim Brotherhood front organization. In 2012, the ISNA Convention was held in Washington, D.C. Deputy U.S. Attorney General, Thomas Perez (this radical is currently Secretary of Labor), addressed the 2012 Convention and other prominent officials of the White House have attended in the past, including Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s Senior Advisor for Engagement and International Affairs in 2009. Jarrett is Obama’s closest adviser and she was born in Iran.

Organizational Structure

The ISNA is led by the ISNA Executive Council with decisions ratified by a Board of Directors (Majlis Ash-Shura). The ISNA Executive Council’s current president is Iman Mohamed Magid, a close friend of President Barack Obama.

Legal issues

Wikipedia pointed out that ISNA was one of a number of Muslim groups investigated by U.S. law enforcement for possible terrorist connections. In the 2007 Holy Land foundation terrorist financing case, the Department of Justice named ISNA, along with Council on American-Islamic Relations CAIR), the North American Islamic Trust, as an unindicted co-conspirator and one of a number of “entities who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood”

Wikipedia wrote that Senator Jon Kyle (R-AZ) has asserted that the Islamic Society of North America is “accused of ties to Islamic extremists”, and investigative journalist Steven Emerson accused ISNA of ties to terrorism. In his testimony before the Senate in October 2003, Dr. Michael Waller told Senators, that “The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) refers Muslim clerics to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons. The Islamic Society of North America is an influential front for the promotion of the Wahhabi political, ideological and theological infrastructure in the United States and Canada.” Claiming that ISNA has connections to 50 to 79 percent of mosques on the North American continent, he accused the organization of “dominating Islam in North America.” Similarly, Stephen Schwartz described ISNA in Senate hearing testimony as one of the chief conduits through which the radical Saudi form of Islam passes through to the US.

Lastly Wikipedia explained that an audit of the separately run but loosely affiliated ISNA-Canada found only a quarter of the funds donated to the organization went to help the poor. Charity donations were misdirected to private businesses. On Sep 21, 2013, the Canada Revenue Service revoked the registration of the ISNA-Canada due to an alleged link to a terror organization. Funds intended to charity.


It must be remembered that Barack Obama supported President Morsi´s Muslim Brotherhood government of Egypt until its final day in power. Obama has endangered our national security by his close relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood connected Iman Mohamed Magid from Sudan. It is an outrage that Obama has made Sudanese-born Iman Mohamed Magid an advisor to the White House, FBI, CIA, and the Department of Homeland Security and has given him access to all of these agencies that are involved in national security.

Iman Magid is president of the largest Muslim Brotherhood front in the nation, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). This large organization was identified as an unindicted co-conspirator during the prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation in 2008.

In spite of this decision, Iman Magid has helped change the training manuals of the FBI to purge documents offensive to Islam. Attorney General Eric Holder has met with him, even though his predecessor, George W. Bush’s Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, refused to meet with Magid after the designation of ISNA as an unindicted co-conspirator.

As has been stated Obama invited Magid to the White House the day before he delivered a major speech at the State Department on May 19, 2011. Magid applauded Obama when, for the first time, a U.S. president demanded that Israel withdraw to the indefensible pre-1967 borders. The Secretary of Homeland Security appointed Magid, Dalia Mogahed, and other Islamists to its Countering Violent Extremism Working Group. How completely inappropriate is to invite individuals who have connections with the Muslim Brotherhood to such a committee!

It is becoming clear each day that Barack Obama has allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to infiltrate in his government. His own half-brother involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood is an indication of his support for this terrorist organization. The established media must bring this information to the attention of the American people. Republicans in Congress must denounce it. The American people deserve to learn that there is a traitor in the White House.
