Kansas Muslim Brotherhood Leader Dr. Jihad Qaddour – “A Masjid on every corner” VIDEO

Posted on December 27, 2019


Dr, Jihad Qaddour is a Muslim American Society leader from Overland Park, KS. He is affiliated with numerous Muslim Brotherhood front groups. I also once had dinner with him in the Lenexa, KS Community Center as we attended the Muslims Without Borders 2012 event. I donated $5.00 and enjoyed delicious kabobs while listening to a speaker named Shafi Khan talk about almost being shot crossing the border between Syria and Turkey.

Dr. Jihad spoke in Arabic the entire meal, I did not realize he could speak English until I saw his video lecture about giving dawah in a South Dakota mosque 4 years later in 2016.

Watch Dr. Jihad’s video lecture below on how he plans to convert 100,000 non-Muslims and put a Masjid on every corner.

“we want to change this society

every year we will double, exponentially

now we have 4,000 – in ten years we want to make it like 100,000

it will happen…don’t worry”

The 2004 archived website for the Islamic Center of Kansas lists Dr. Jihad Qaddour on the Board of Directors. The 2003 archived website for the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City shows Dr. Jihad Qaddour on the Schools Board of Directors.

In 2007 Richard Wagner with the Carolina Journal wrote about the Muslim Brotherhood USA and how they changed their name to the Muslim American Society in 1993. The article also name Overland Park, KS Muslim leader Dr. Jihad Qaddour as a trustee of the MAS National organization.

FBI says most terror activity in the United States is of ‘nonviolent’ type

Richard Wagner in CJ Exclusives January 10, 2007 Individuals involved in domestic and international terrorism not only have infiltrated American society, but also have initiated some of their activities in North Carolina, a top federal law-enforcement official in Charlotte and experts on radical Islam say.

In 1993 after contentious debate, leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States changed the group’s name to the Muslim American Society. A Chicago Tribune series of articles in 2004 headlined “A Rare Look at Secretive Brotherhood in America” offers a glimpse into the organization’s transformation:

MAS has 53 chapters nationwide

MAS national headquarters in Alexandria, Va., reported on its 2004 IRS tax return, the most recent report available, that the organization had assets of $3.44 million and total revenue of $2.21 million. MAS reported expenses of $2.25 million.

Dr. Souheil Ghannouchi was listed on the IRS return as executive director of the national chapter of MAS. Other members of the MAS board of directors were Dr. Imad Damaj, a trustee; Dr. Jihad Qaddour, trustee; and Dr. Esam Omeish, president. Omeish also was a speaker at the conference.

Shaker Elsayed, a top MAS official and imam at Dar al-Hijrah, said MAS “does not believe in creating an Islamic state in America but supports the establishment of Islamic governments in Muslim lands,” the Chicago Tribune reported. “The group’s goal in the United States, he says, ‘is to serve and develop the Muslim community and help Muslims to be the best citizens they can be of this country.’ That includes preserving the Muslim identity, particularly among youths.”

Asked his views on militant groups such as Hamas, Elsayed compared Hamas to Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress — organizations that resorted to violent resistance only after decades of injustice, the AP reported.

The global War on Terror is an ideological struggle, not a military battle, Nawash said. “Political Islam’s goal is to pick up emotional issues and use them cleverly,” he said, and MAS is effective doing that. “If you want to know where they really stand, ask them [MAS] what they think of Hamas.”

In the Facebook post shown below from February 26, 2017, the SME Coalition annual benefit concert raised more than $1100.00 for Syria Relief and Development.

Dr. Jihad Qaddour is a leader with the Muslim American Society aka the Muslim Brotherhood. Dr. Sofia Khan is founder of Muslim Youth of North America of Kansas City. MYNA was founded by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Ahmed Elkhadi 1985.

Jihad Qaddour is also a key figure in the Syrian Muslim invasion of the U.S. and the Wichita mosque he founded was caught inviting a Hamas-linked imam for a Good Friday fundraiser. Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo pushed back against HAMAS.

The four finger Muslim Brotherhood hand gesture as seen below tells us that Jihad Qaddour is Muslim Brotherhood USA.

Jomana Qaddour – The daughter of Jihad Qaddour, she is a former board member and secretary for Islamic Relief USA  (IRUSA).  A 2014 report by the Clarion Project provides information linking IRUSA with Hamas and the MB.  In regards to IRUSA’s parent organization, Islamic Relief Worldwide,  the GMBDW notes :

Islamic Relief was one of the founding members of the Union of Good, a “coalition of Islamic charities that provides financial support to both the Hamas ‘social’ infrastructure, as well as its terrorist activities.” The Union of Good is headed by global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi and most of the trustees and member organizations are associated with the Global Muslim Brotherhood.

Interesting side note, Kansas City American Muslim Council founder Ahmed El-Sherif is the nephew of Kamel El-Sherif former leader with the Union of Good. Previous Post here.

The Money Jihad blog has reported on a June 2014 leadership change at Islamic Relief USA related to financial misdoing at the charity. The report begins:


November 9, 2014 In May of 2013, the financial rating of Islamic Relief USA, the nation’s largest Islamic charity, was downgraded from four stars to two stars by the nonprofit watchdog Charity Navigator. By October of 2013, it was announced that IR-USA’s chief executive officer, Abed Ayoub, was leaving IR-USA to take over a northern Virginia charity now known as United Muslim Relief (UMR), that had dropped its old name, ‘Muslims Without Borders’ one day earlier.

The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch has exposed Jihad Qaddour’s Muslim Brotherhood lineage as well:

In addition to his role as an officer of the Muslim American Society, the part of the US Muslim Brotherhood closest to the Egyptian organization, an individual with the last name Qaddour was listed on a spreadsheet from an internal U. Brotherhood document dated 12/18/88 that lists fifteen last names of the US Brotherhood Shura Council.
