Suspicious and/or Hostile Activities:
  • Former FCNA trustee Abdurahman Alamoudi. Helped send $1 million to al Qaeda through the U.K.-based and Saudi-backed Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia (MIRA), designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. Treasury Dept.
  • Former FCNA trustee Alamoudi was arrested in Sept. 2003 for immigration and tax fraud and illegally dealing with Libya and is now serving 23 years for his terror-related actions. He failed to note his MB associations on his 1995 U.S. citizenship application and omitted five of his ten trips abroad in the previous five years, and offices he held at MB-funded Mercy International USA; Hamas-funding MB associate, United Association for Studies and Research (UASR); American Task Force for Bosnia (ATFB), Muslims for a Better America (MBA); Council for the National Interest Foundation (CNIF); Eritrean Liberation Front; or Marzook Family Fund of specially designated terrorist and Hamas “political director” Mousa Abu Marzook, who helped MB financier Yusuf Nada establish many global MB outfits.
  • On Mar. 24, 2003 at Islam Online, chairman Mohammad Nur Abdullah, executive trustee Jamal Badawi and chairman Muzzamil Siddiqi condoned a fatwa ruling of anonymous “muftis” mandating believers to maim and murder U.S. troops in the mideast. Attacking U.S. soldiers who had launched “war against Muslims is an obligation and Jihad, as they are true invaders,” it said, and following this obligatory jihad, would deliver “martyrdom” to Muslims so “killed.”
  • Co-founder, former chair and president Taha Jabir Alalwani --- an unindicted co-conspirator in the case of admitted terror-financier Sami al-Arian --- serves SAFA Group and its suspected terror-funding network. In Oct 2003, Homeland security senior special Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent David Kane, signed an affidavit on strong evidence of Sami al-Arian's conspiracy with SAFA Group executives to fund and support HAMAS and PIJ.
  • Under FCNA auspices, Alwalani authored a new “fiqh al aqalliyyat,” interim extension of classical sharia for Muslim minorities in the West, encouraging them to temporarily accept non-Muslim rule, while heavily populating the West and spreading Islam The seditious code helps fulfill dawa requirements largely by deluding “kufr” non-Muslims about Islamic norms.

Connection to MB and MB organizations: Formed in the early 60s as Religious Affairs Committee of the Muslim Students Association of the U.S. and Canada, FCNA after ISNA's founding in 1980 became its Fiqh Committee and in 1986 separated as an independent organization. FCNA remains an ISNA affiliate, and as such continues to advise and “educate” ISNA associates on sharia. Through its founders, current leaders and activities, FCNA is connected to virtually every other Muslim Brotherhood organization in North America, including the suspected terror-funding SAFA Group, ICNA, MSA, and of course Hamas and the global MB.
Projects: FCNA portrays itself as a religious advisory organization but through subversive activity intends solely to advance North American Muslim Brotherhood goals of sharia and Islamic supremacy.
