Are There Muslim Brotherhood Sleeper Cells Operating in U.S. Congress?

by AHMAD AL TAHER September 19, 2013

In a report published by Egyptian daily al Watan, investigative journalist Ahmad al Taheri wrote that sources have uncovered that Muslim Brotherhood lobbies are operating within the Congress to build up ties between members and the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt and Syria, and the Jihadists in Libya, as well as mobilizing public opinion to support a military strike against the regime of Bashar Assad in Syria. The report said these lobbies particularly targeted Senator McCain and his colleagues convincing them to align themselves with radical and extremist forces throughout the Arab Spring. These positions do not come from void, but as a result of the these efforts by the Islamist lobbies. The report cited Mr Muaz Mustafa from  Palestinian descent as advising or assisting Senator McCain, and said Mustafa has ties to Hamas. al Watan added that Mustafa played a major role in building relationships between the deputy chief of the banned Muslim Brotherhood movement in Egypt, Khairat al Shater and Senator McCain during the crisis pertaining to the funding of the civil society NGOs in Egypt.      

The report unveiled that this episode, (the NGO crisis, including the IRI issue) was the beginning of McCain's engagement with the international Muslim Brotherhood organization. According to al Watan, Mustafa oversaw the Senator's visit to Syria last May and his meetings with General Selim Idriss, chief of staff of the Free Syria Army. The report also revealed that Muaz Mustafa is highly active with the Council on American Islamic Relations CAIR who participated in the uprising against Muammar Gaddafi. Mustafa also attacked Egypt's June 30 revolution and criticized the removal of Mohammed Morsi on his Twitter Account.    

The report also said another activist in the group named Elizabeth O'Bagy was questioned by US media for her inaccurate statements about receiving a Ph.D from Georgetown University, which she hasn't received. Media also questioned her article in the Wall Street calling for a strike on Syria, cited by politicians in the Administration and in Congress. al Watan added that many questions were raised about Mustafa and O'Bagy for their activities at the Syria Task Force, which support military factions in Syria."
