Weekly terms: Muslim Students Association

July 21, 2010

The Muslim Students Association traces its origins to the Muslim Brotherhood, serves as a breeding ground for Muslim Brotherhood recruitment, and seeks to Islamize campuses and America through aggressive dawah according to this Hudson Institute report and an Investigative Project on Terrorism report (h/t to The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report). 

But don’t count on mainstream sources to tell you that.  Here’s the entry on “Muslim Students Association” from the highly pro-Islamic Encyclopedia of Islam in the United States:

Established in January 1963, the Muslim Students Association of the United States and Canada is one of the oldest and most influential Islamic organizations in North America.  There are more than two hundred affiliated chapters at American and Canadian universities as well as many other Muslim student organizations that work closely with the MSA.  A number of leading Muslim American local, regional, and national organizations and institutions have their roots in the MSA, including the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)…*

The author of that definition probably didn’t mean to give away as much information as she has.  More to come in the future on the ISNA relations.
