When House Homeland Security Committee Chair Pete King holds hearings on the source of homegrown terror Thursday, he should zero in on the radical Muslim Brotherhood. FBI case agents who've investigated Brotherhood-controlled mosques, charities and other fronts here in America say that virtually every major terror case points back to the Egypt-based Brotherhood.
Over the last few decades, the Muslim Brotherhood has stealthily built an impressive infrastructure of support for terrorists, from Washington to New York, from Chicago to San Diego. Pre-9/11, much of their activity went unnoticed by even law enforcement. But now the US Justice Department says -- albeit quietly, through a growing body of post-9/11 court records -- that most major Muslim groups in America are fronts for the Brotherhood. And these US fronts have raised millions of dollars for Hamas, al Qaeda and other terror groups.
Just a few years ago, federal prosecutors identified 61 US-based Muslim Brotherhood figures and entities among unindicted co-conspirators in the largest terror-financing case in American history. On the list are the most prominent Islamic groups in America, including the Islamic Society of North America and its subsidiary the North American Islamic Trust, which holds title to most major mosques in the country. Also listed was the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, which is now banned from outreach by the FBI due to its "ongoing" terror ties.
The 11-page list was attached to a pre-trial court brief that implicated these mainstream Muslim groups as part of an allegedly criminal Brotherhood scheme to funnel millions to Palestinian terrorists under the guise of charity. They allegedly conspired in the terror plot with the largest Muslim charity in America -- the Brotherhood-controlled Holy Land Foundation.

For this administration, home grown terror only applies to people like Timothy McVeigh.
When the politicl winds blow I will stand behind Muslims?
Isn’t that waht Obama said?
