Georgetown University’s Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal Center for Christian Muslim Understanding is scheduled to host a Dec. 5 event on “Egypt and the Struggle for Democracy.”The event features a slew of speakers sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as Coptic Christian Ramy Jan, who cut his teeth on the Egyptian political scene as a member of the country’s Nazi Party, according to multiple sources. The event is scheduled to take place all day at Georgetown’s ICC auditorium and feature a keynote address by Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) [emphasis added].
Anything else that we haven’t heard before? You betcha:
Other featured speakers include Wael Haddara, a Canadian-based Muslim Brotherhood backer who formerly served as a senior adviser to Morsi; Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a onetime member of the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party who is now fighting against the coup; and Mohamed Abbas, an Islamist and longtime supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood. Other participants include Dalia Mogahed, who was picked by President Barack Obama to advise White House’s Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Mogahed said on Twitter Tuesday that organizers of the event had no knowledge that Jan was a member of Egypt’s Nazi party.
And of course:
Ellison’s spokesman Mike Casca also did not respond to a request for comment.
Who is the Muslim Brotherhood?
“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”
Welcome to the DFL. The party of tolerance and inclusion.
