The screen capture from the KCUR website gives names, and the headline mentions a “REFUGEE CRISIS”. What the story does not mention is Mohamad Albadawi is a long time leader of multiple Muslim Brotherhood affiliated organizations. Albadawi was Convention Chairman for the 1993 MAYA Convention in Detroit Michigan as quoted in an Associated Press article in the Argus Press.

So, a little backround info on the Muslim Arab Youth Association MAYA is documented below with a focus on Kansas City.

Nabil Sadoun

Sadoun was ordered removed from the United States by the Immigration Court after being found deportable under a 21-count charging document for lying to immigration authorities about his connections to Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas-linked organizations.

Book written by deported jihadist and Jew hater Nabil Sadoun

Nabil Sadoun made his views about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict clear during a 1993 interview.

Asked about conflict with “the Jews,” Sadoun described it as “the first priority for Muslim[s] until the Holy Land is liberated and the backbone of the Jews is broken.”

Nabil Sadoun served on CAIR’s board of directors, a position he held until just before his 2010 deportation. He also served as a board member and past chair of CAIR-Texas. He helped found the United Association for Studies and Research (UASR) with Hamas leader Marzook.

HAMAS supporter Nabil Sadoun’s children books are available on Amazon and used in schools across the USA.

The UASR was listed among the organizations in the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Palestine Committee” in America. Sadoun also was a co-founder of the Muslim Arab Youth Association (MAYA)
Other co-founders included Osama bin Laden’s nephew, Abdullah, and the group was funded with a $250,000 grant from the Bin Laden Construction Company in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. MAYA’s conferences, many of which it co-sponsored with IAP, have long supported Hamas.

For example, in Kansas City 1989, at an IAP/MAYA conference, a masked Hamas commander praised a Hamas operative for driving a civilian bus off the road into a ravine, killing 17 persons including an American. The crowd responded with shouts of “God is great!”

Video of Nabil Sadoun can be seen below, he is introduced by Lawrence & Overland Park, KS MAS leader Hamed Ghazali. In the video, both Hamed and Nabil glorify the Muslim Brotherhood intellectual godfather Sayyid Qutb and his book  “Milestones”.

NEW STATESMEN DECEMBER 15, 2011 – Do books “prime people for terrorism”?

Milestones, a treatise on Islamic governance written by Qutb during a previous stint in prison. Qutb was executed in prison on 29 August 1966. All known copies of the book were confiscated and burned by military order, and anyone found in possession of it was prosecuted for treason.

Almost half a century later, on Tuesday 13 December 2011, British Muslim Ahmed Faraz was sentenced to three years in prison in London after being convicted of disseminating a number of books which were deemed to be terrorist publications and thereby “glorifying” and “priming people” for terrorism (despite, as the judge conceded, having had no role in any specific terror plots). One of those books is Qutb’s Milestones – which is considered by some to be one of the core texts of the modern Islamist movement and the ideological inspiration for Al Qaeda.

Yusuf Al-Qaradawi at Bartle Hall 1989 – As of 2014 and still posted on the INTERPOL website, a Red Alert for his arrest.  Charged with incitement and assistance to commit intentional murder and helping prisoners escape.
Another convicted Hamas member, Nasser Hidmi (a K-State Student), was invited by a senior Hamas recruiter to a MAYA conference in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1990. Hidmi alleged that separate meetings were conducted during the conference specifically for Hamas supporters. Hidmi testified that during another MAYA conference in Kansas City in 1991, Hamas members discussed preparing terrorist attacks against Israel.

Additionally, in December 1992, MAYA’s Arabic language periodical Al-Amal quoted Nabil Sadoun as saying that MAYA had “introduced to the whole American [people] symbols of the awakening like Dr. Abdullah Azzam.” Azzam was Osama bin Laden’s spiritual advisor and a co-founder of Al Qaeda’s predecessor, the Makhtab-e-Khidamat.

The Investigative Project on Terror has a detailed report here IPT found here.

Mohamad Albadawi is a long time leader with the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City. He has also been involved with the education and youth programs as head of the Muslim American Society MAS in Kansas. Albadawi also runs a Refugee Organization in Overland Park, KS along with his daughter Duaa Albadawi who was engaged to marry and defended a convicted jihadist who tried to bomb Chicago in 2010.

The UAE United Arab Emirates officially declared MAS as a terror organization in 2014.

Mosque Linked To Muslim Brotherhood Has Received Millions In Federal Grants

CHUCK ROSS December 28, 2015 – The Daily Caller

A Kansas City mosque owned by an Islamic umbrella organization with deep ties to the U.S. arm of the Muslim Brotherhood has received millions of dollars in federal grants over the past several years, according to a federal spending database.

The Islamic Center of Greater Kansas City has received $2,739,891 from the Department of Agriculture since 2010, a Daily Caller analysis has found. The money largely went to the mosque’s Crescent Clinic to provide services through the Women, Infant and Children nutrition program, known as WIC.

Property records show the mosque is owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), which acts as a financial holding company for Islamic organizations. It offers sharia-compliant financial products to Muslim investors, operates Islamic schools and owns more than 300 other mosques throughout the U.S.

In being owned by NAIT, the Kansas City organization is in company with numerous mosques with ties to known terrorists, terror sympathizers and fundamentalist Islamists.

Purportedly backed by money from Saudi Arabia and supporting a fundamentalist branch of Sunni Islam known as Wahhabism, NAIT holds the deed to the Islamic Society of Boston, which operates the mosque attended by Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the so-called Boston Marathon bombers.

It also controls the Islamic Center of San Diego, which was attended by Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, two al-Qaeda members who helped fly American Flight 77 into the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.

According to a 2002 Newsweek investigation, members of the San Diego mosque helped the two terrorists obtain housing, driver’s licences and social security numbers. They claimed not to have known about the men’s terror plans.

NAIT also owns the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Fairfax Co., Va. — a known hotbed of terrorist activity. Al-Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki served as imam at that location in 2001 and 2002. He was killed by an American drone in Yemen in 2011.

The Islamic Center of Greater Kansas City has its own loose links to terrorist activities. The mosque made news earlier this year when it held the funeral for Nadir Soofi, one of the two jihadis who attempted to pull off a terrorist attack in Garland, Tex. Soofi, who was 34, and his accomplice, 30-year-old Elton Simpson, opened fire outside of an art exhibit featuring cartoons of Muhammad, but were killed by a security guard.

Both Soofi and Simpson attended the Islamic Community Center in Phoenix, which land deeds show is owned by NAIT.

That particular mosque posted $100,000 bond for Simpson following his 2010 arrest for lying to FBI agents about his plans to travel to Somalia to join a terrorist group. Simpson was given three years probation in that case.

The Islamic Center of Greater Kansas City has also hosted Imam Khalid Yasin, an American-born convert to Islam, who has publicly supported sharia law and claimed that homosexuals should receive the death penalty.

As a May 2010 Yahoo! message board post shows, Yasin visited the Islamic Center of Greater Kansas City and other area mosques that month to hold a series of lectures and workshops about Islam.

That was nearly two years after Yasin touted the virtues of sharia law and capital punishment in a speech at a British mosque.

According to a journalist for The Telegraph, Yasin said that sharia law works because:

“Then people can see, people without hands, people can see in public heads rolling down the street, people got [sic] their hands and feet from opposite sides chopped off and they see them crucified…they see people put up against the pole and see them get lashed in public they see it, and because they see it, it acts as a deterrent for them because they say I don’t want that to happen to me.”

The Islamic Center of Greater Kansas City did not respond to an email from TheDC seeking comment about its relationship with NAIT and for more information about its federal grants. Follow Chuck on Twitter

I would encourage readers to return to the original KCUR article and see for yourself what “fake news” looks like.

The Kansas City Star ran a story in 2002 regarding the MAYA events in Kansas City. The article mentions none of the names of the Convention organizers, but did mention the name of a Kansas City woman who volunteered at the convention.

Local Muslims who attended some of the Bartle Hall sessions said they could not recall any recruiting or calls for violence.

“It wouldn’t even enter my mind that it was that kind of gathering,” said Rita Shukair, who has long been active in Palestinian humanitarian causes. Shukair helped distribute educational materials about the Middle East during part of the conference.

Rita Shukair was also a 1989 agitator against Israel as seen quoted below from the Chicago Tribune.

Police Smash Arab-jewish Peace Rally

December 31, 1989|By Carol Rosenberg, Special to The Tribune.

During the Herod Gate violence, Rita Shukair of Kansas City, Mo., stood before a water cannon, holding an olive branch to try to halt the melee. A border police officer struck her on the shoulder with his baton, then pushed her out of the way.

Shukair, the American wife of a Palestinian, said she came with her two children to the Holy Land as tourists, and to take part in the peace chain.

“All my life in America we were taught that these are the people of the book (Bible),“ she said. “Is this God or Satan? They ask us to give our hand in peace, and they give us tear gas and clubs.

The article above mentions that Rita Shukair is the wife of a Palestinian, but the husbands name is not mentioned. His name is however mentioned in a 1986 NY Times article showing more Jewish agitation just an couple years prior to the MAYA Conventions at Bartle Hall.

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 18, 1986 — Meir Kahane, founder of the Jewish Defense League, was arrested and charged with battery Tuesday after a scuffle with hecklers at a speech in suburban Overland Park, Kansas.

Mr. Kahane, 54 years old, who emigrated to Israel and is now a member of Parliament there, was released on a signature bond and is to appear in Overland Park Municipal Court on Dec. 2, said Lieut.

Phil Barbour of the Overland Park police. The two hecklers, Mousa Husein Shukair and Rezek M. Muslet, were charged with disorderly conduct.

”He was speaking on the stage and the people were yelling and heckling him,” Lieutenant Barbour said. ”He walked about 20 feet off the stage and took a swing. One or two blows were landed, and he was restrained by police officers.”

At the time the disturbance occurred, Mr. Kahane was assailing Arabs who live in Israel, saying they cause fear among Jewish citizens of that country.

Mr. Kahane was assassinated not long after his altercation with the KC peaceful Muslim agitators in Overland Park, KS.

El Sayyid Nosair, an Egyptian-born American citizen who was initially charged and acquitted of the murder.[53] Nosair was later convicted of the murder in United States district court incident to the trial for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Prosecutors were able to retry Nosair for the murder because the federal indictment includes the killing as part of the alleged terrorist conspiracy.[54] He was sentenced to life imprisonment, and later made a confession to federal agents.[55]

Sheik, others convicted in New York

NEW YORK (CNN) — Defense attorneys said “preconceived bias” by jurors led to Sunday’s terror conspiracy conviction of Egyptian cleric Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman and nine others.

One of the defendants, El Sayyid Nosair, also was found guilty of the 1991 killing of extremist Rabbi Meir Kahane. Nosair and Abdel-Rahman both face the possibility of life in prison.

The convictions by a federal jury involve a plot to blow up the United Nations, kill Egypt’s president and bomb vital highway tunnels and FBI offices in New York. The verdicts followed 37 hours of deliberations stretching over seven days.

Prosecutors charged that Abdel-Rahman and his co-defendants plotted a war of terrorism against the United States to force a change in Washington’s Mideast policy.

The sheik’s attorney, Lynne Stewart, said he told her not to cry after the verdict was announced. “He said, `I’m not the first person to go to jail for his beliefs, I won’t be the last. There are always pitfalls when you choose this road and this is one of them,'” she said.

The jury found the sheik guilty of trying to arrange the assassination of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and of suggesting that the U.S. Army be targeted for bombings. The formal charges against Abdel-Rahman were seditious conspiracy, solicitation to murder, conspiracy to murder, solicitation to attack a U.S. military installation and bombing conspirac1984.
