The Muslim Brotherhood In Toledo

According to Ohioans Against Terrorism: "It might only be the shores of Lake Erie, but the Muslim Brotherhood has established an invasion beachhead in Toledo. The most recent landing by the international Islamic extremist organization was 2 weeks ago when the Muslim American Society (MAS) – the ideological arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the US, identified as such by the Department of Justice in a court filing back in December – held a conference at the University of Toledo. Perhaps it’s no coincidence that the Department of Homeland Security recently added Toledo to the list of high-risk terrorism areas."

Two of the speakers at the conference were MAS leaders Esam Omeish and Mahdi Bray. What is amazing is that Omeish was head of the Virginia Commission on Immigration until Virginia legislators learned of his calling for jihad and endorsement of suicide bombings, and called for his resignation from the state commission! A video had surfaced of Omeish advocating jihad against Israel at a rally in Washington DC, where he congratulated Palestinian terrorists for "giving up their lives for the sake of Allah." He also said:

“...you have learned the way, that you have known that the jihad way is the way to liberate your land...and we shall do everything we can to help your cause.”

See the video of Omeish’s remarks here (see first video).

At another rally in October of 2000 across from the White House, Mahdi Bray was seen standing beside Abdurrahman Alamoudi (who is currently serving 20 years in prison on terrorism charges) and can be seen lauding the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist organizations to a cheering crowd.
See Alamoudi video here (see third video). 

The Muslim Brotherhood’s plans for America were uncovered last summer when a document that outlines their goals to wage a “grand jihad” aimed at undermining our systems and values and replacing them with a fundamentalist version of Islam surfaced. The document outlines the goals, such as:

The Ikhwan [the Muslim Brotherhood's name for itself] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah's religion is made victorious over all other religions.
Some Ohioans are waking up to the reality of radical Islamists in America, but is the rest of the country awake?
