A Muslim Brotherhood operative who visited the White House in March also has ties to a manifesto called "The Project" that turned out to be a Muslim roadmap for infiltrating and defeating the West, according to a documentary film being released tonight on TheBlaze TV.
The visit by Hisham Yahya Al-Talib, who also has ties to several major U.S. Islamic organizations, was billed as an exercise in "faith outreach."
It may well have been, but to treat Al-Talib as a garden variety faith leader would be severely mistaken. He is anything but - in fact, his connections to the more problematic elements of the Muslim Brotherhood run deep, as Michelle Malkin has documented in her column today, which runs through the laundry list of connections Al-Talib enjoys. For just a quick sample:
Altalib is an Iraqi-born Muslim identified by the FBI as a Muslim Brotherhood operative before he moved to America in the 1970s to earn an advanced electrical engineering degree from Purdue University in Indiana. By his own account, Altalib "soon became active in Islamic work in North America, which continues to this day."
He was the "first full-time director of the Leadership Training Department of the Muslim Students Association of the United States and Canada (MSA)" -- a longtime Muslim Brotherhood front group whose explicit goal is to "conquer" America through Islamic propagandizing.
Altalib is also a founding member of the SAAR Foundation and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). Last year, his online biography proudly notes, he was "awarded the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) Community Service Award." The Saudi-subsidized ISNA is regarded as the primary U.S. umbrella group for Muslim Brotherhood fronts and was named specifically by the global MB godfathers as a key player in their "Grand Jihad" strategy of infiltration from within.
And one particularly frightening bit of information for our purposes:
Altalib worked for one of Al Taqwa Bank's main owners, Youssef Nada.
For those who don't know, Youssef Nada is the man in whose house the infamous Muslim Brotherhood blueprint for Islamic infiltration known as "The Project" was found back in 2001.
Granted, Malkin's story does not specify at what level Al-Talib worked for the Al Taqwa Bank. A Wall Street Journal story from March 22, 2002 describes him as an "officer," but no detail is available beyond that, such as whether Al-Talib reported directly to Nada. Nevertheless, given al-Talib's other connections, his invitation to the White House is arguably cause for alarm. Even if Al-Talib himself did not have a hand in drafting "the Project," he seems to be doing a very good job of acting on its behalf.
For those wanting more information on "The Project," TheBlaze TV will be airing a documentary tonight at 8 PM surrounding the document. Click here for details on the documentary of "The Project."
