Over at Big Peace, Christine Brim reports that the Muslim Brotherhood-associated Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations will bring 25-30 Muslim leaders of 20 national Muslim groups to attend a special workshop presented by the White House and assorted government agencies tomorrow. The workshop is to provide the groups “funding, government assistance and resources.”
Working from an Islamic Society of North America email newsletter, Ms. Brim notes that the workshop will apparently afford special access for the organizations in attendance. The organizers pledge to provide “direct access” and “cut through red tape.” Readers with long memories may recall that the ISNA is perhaps best known as one of the unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation prosecution. More good news: an iftar dinner will be held after the workshop.
Ms. Brim speculates on the likely participants in the event and offers some ideas on what is to be done. It would be nice in the meantime if we could learn what is happening here.
UPDATE: Via Lucianne, I see that Josh Gerstein has an excellent report on the appeal pursued by the North American Islamic Trust over the designation of unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation prosecution. I wrote about the designation of CAIR as an undicted co-conspirator three years ago in “Coming clean about CAIR.”
