Federal authorities say a high-level Muslim Pentagon aide, who led a campaign to silence a Pentagon intelligence analyst for taking a hard line against Islam, is running an "influence operation" on behalf of U.S. Muslim groups fronting for the radical Muslim Brotherhood.

Hesham H. Islam, a special assistant to deputy Defense secretary Gordon England, recently criticized Maj. Stephen Coughlin, one of the military's leading authorities on Islamic war doctrine, for making the connection between the religion of Islam and terrorism.
After Islam lodged complaints, Coughlin's contract with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon was not renewed.
Islam also was upset with briefings Coughlin recently prepared for the U.S. military warning that major U.S. Muslim groups were fronting for the Muslim Brotherhood, a worldwide jihadist movement based in Egypt.
Islam, who was born and raised in Egypt, is heavily involved with one of the groups the Islamic Society of North America, which U.S. prosecutors last year named as a member of the U.S. branch of the Muslim Brotherhood and an unindicted co-conspirator in a major terror-funding case.
Islam has persuaded his boss, England, to conduct various outreach with ISNA, including hosting the group's leaders in the Pentagon and speaking at its annual convention.

Yeah, Right... and I want Hillary for president.
Not a pleasant headline. I hope WND is living up to it’s nickname on this one.
There was another thread on this subject today and the info didn’t come from WND. I also read it on a couple blogs.
Just curious — what is WND’s nickname?
Gosh, who would have ever thunk that Islam and terrorism are somehow related?
There is an old saying “You can keep the KGB away from the FBI, but you cannot keep the FBI away from the President”
Meaning that there is more access for the Jihadis if they join the FBI then if they joined Al Quida the Squida...
Keep Steven Coughlin. Let the other heads roll.
Even a jihadi caveman can understand.
Islam is like Communism, it is not a religion. We should stop calling it a religion.
Islam is a death cult!

...WND has learned that Islam is closely associated with a Muslim military chaplain trained at a radical Islamic school that federal agents raided after 9/11 in connection with terror-financing.
As WND reported, the chaplain, Abuhena M. Saifulislam, studied Islam at the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences in Virginia.
Recently declassified FBI documents reveal its sister organization, an Islamist think tank known as the International Institute of Islamic Thought, or IIIT, is involved in a Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy to wage a cultural and political jihad to eventually take over America from within most notably, through infiltration of government agencies.
Islam works closely with Saifulislam (Arabic for "sword of Islam") on Pentagon outreach projects involving Middle Eastern embassies and the so-called Wahhabi lobby in Washington...
no problem, just elect a muslim for President of the United States of America and there'll be nothing to worry about!
Can you all say “treason”, boys and girls? Something smells a lot like rotten pork on this one.
If, in fact, this Islam guy is affiliated with an organization that has been identified as supporting terrorist agendas, why is he still on the payroll? Why is he still free to roam around?
And, Coughlin? Probably negotiating a book deal that will make a Federal salary seem like pocket change.
This is not new news. It’s been discussed here before. Islam works for Gordon England at the Pentagon not the FBI. Hopefully the FBI is investigating.
