  • The Islam­ic Soci­ety of North Amer­i­ca (ISNA) is a Plain­field, Illi­nois-based umbrel­la orga­ni­za­tion that describes its vision as being “an exem­plary and uni­fy­ing Islam­ic orga­ni­za­tion in North Amer­i­ca that con­tributes to the bet­ter­ment of the Mus­lim com­mu­ni­ty and soci­ety at large.” ISNA emerged out of the ear­ly US Mus­lim Broth­er­hood infra­struc­ture and was named as an unin­dict­ed co-con­spir­a­tor in the Holy Land Foun­da­tion ter­ror­ism tri­al as a result of what the US Jus­tice Depart­ment called the organization’s “inti­mate rela­tion­ship with the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, the Pales­tine Com­mit­tee, and the defen­dants in this case.”   Recent evi­dence of ISNA’s influ­ence on US pol­i­tics includes an ISNA leader par­tic­i­pat­ing at a Trump admin­is­tra­tion secu­ri­ty con­fer­ence, and Demo­c­ra­t­ic pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates Bernie Sanders’ and Julian Castro‘s speak­ing appear­ance at ISNA’s annu­al conference.
