US Council of Muslim Organizations


The USCMO is com­prised almost sole­ly of ele­ments of the US Mus­lim Brotherhood:

CAIR, ICNA, and the MAS are part of the U.S. Mus­lim Broth­er­hood while the AMP is part of the U.S. Hamas sup­port infra­struc­ture and the MFLA had its ori­gins in the defense of the lead­ers of the Holy Land Foun­da­tion, con­vict­ed in the financ­ing of Hamas.

The Mus­lim Ummah of North Amer­i­ca (MUNA) is a rel­a­tive­ly obscure orga­ni­za­tion that links on its web page only to CAIR, MAS, ISNA, and ICNA.

The USCMO Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al Ous­sama Jam­mal has long been a leader of the Bridgeview Mosque and its Mosque Foun­da­tion, the focus of a 2004 Chica­go Tri­bune inves­ti­ga­tion which revealed that as much as $1 mil­lion a year had been raised from mosque mem­bers which was then sent to over­seas Mus­lim char­i­ties, prin­ci­pal­ly in sup­port of Hamas. The arti­cle also detailed the mosque’s ties to the Mus­lim Brotherhood.

As not­ed by our pre­de­ces­sor pub­li­ca­tion, one of the com­mon tac­tics of the U.S. Mus­lim Broth­er­hood is to con­struct coali­tions of its own front orga­ni­za­tions as well as inter-relat­ed groups and indi­vid­u­als, giv­ing the appear­ance that the Broth­er­hood has more broad-based sup­port than it actu­al­ly enjoys. The new US Coun­cil of Mus­lim Orga­ni­za­tions is just the lat­est in a long series of such “umbrel­la groups” formed by the US Mus­lim Brotherhood.
