Americans Against Hate (AAH) to Protest Muslim Group's National Convention

On Sunday, July 8, 2007, Americans Against Hate (AAH) will be holding a protest outside the 32nd national convention of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and the Muslim American Society (MAS). The event is taking place at the Connecticut Convention Center, in Hartford, Connecticut.

At the protest, AAH will be calling on the United States government to freeze the bank accounts of ICNA and to place the Muslim Brotherhood of Pakistan, Jamaat-e-Islami, on the State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs). AAH will be showing proof that both groups have been involved in the financing of Hamas with tens of thousands of dollars, as recently as in August of 2006.

Speaking at the protest will be AAH Chairman Joe Kaufman, who will be flying in from Florida. Also speaking with be Jeffrey Epstein, the founder and President of America’s Truth Forum (ATF).

Kaufman stated, “Major Muslim institutions have been shut down for financing Hamas, and we believe ICNA should be shut down, as well. ICNA is the American arm of the Muslim Brotherhood of Pakistan, and we have evidence to show that, only less than one year ago, both groups were involved with presenting $99,000 to the head of Hamas, Khaled Mashaal. We have information to suggest that this money is being used to murder and maim people abroad, and we are calling on our government to take action against these groups immediately to avert any further damage that they may cause now and in the future.”

Further information about this subject can be found, by reading Kaufman’s FrontPage Magazine article, ‘Helping Hand to Hamas.’
