Capitol staffers host former Taibah leader

December 2, 2010

According to Fox News, the former president of the Taibah International Aid Association, Anwar Hajjaj, led prayers at a Jummah prayer service at the U.S. Capitol in April.  The only problem is that Taibah International was designated as a terrorist entity by the Treasury Department in 2004.

You’d think Hajjaj would be on some type of “no prayer leading” list for the Capitol.  Or at least a “do not invite” list for crying out loud!

From FoxNews.com on Nov. 11:

Hajjaj, tax filings show, was president of Taibah International Aid Association, which was designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. Treasury Department in 2004 for its ties to a network funneling money to Hamas.

Hajjaj and Usama bin Laden’s nephew, Abdullah bin Laden, co-founded World Assembly of Muslim Youth, which the FBI has deemed a “suspected terrorist organization” since 1996, according to a complaint filed in New York federal court on behalf of the families of Sept. 11 victims. The judge refused to dismiss the charges against the World Assembly in September, saying the charges against it were “sufficient to demonstrate that they are knowingly and intentionally providing material support to Al Qaeda.”

Hajjaj’s involvement with CMSA dates back at least to 2006, according to reports.

The CMSA is the Congressional Muslim Staff Association.
