Brotherhood Interfaith Partners Pounce on Anti-Jihad Subway Ads
Interfaith allies of the Muslim Brotherhood legacy groups in the U.S. are now jumping into the controversy over the pro-Israel, anti-jihad advertisements in New York City subways. Their outcry is not a spontaneous reaction to "hate speech." It is part of an organized pushback against critics of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliates, adopting "Islamophobia" as their line of attack.

It is not an exaggeration to say these interfaith groups are part of a coalition friendly to the Muslim Brotherhood-originated groups in the U.S. and their agenda. On March 13, the group Shoulder-to-Shoulder published a letter to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg expressing its outrage against the New York Police Department's showing of The Third Jihad, a documentary that exposes the Brotherhood origins of groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The signatories blasted it as "bigoted" even though it is narrated by a devout Muslim, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser. The President of ISNA is a member of Shoulder-to-Shoulder's Executive Committee.
