Muslim Brotherhood Activists Hosting Fundraiser For House Candidate


Revelation 6:3-4 NCV When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a red one. Its rider was given power to take away peace (prosperity, rest) from the earth and to make people kill each other (butcher, slaughter, to maim violently, in streets), and he was given a big sword (assassins sword, terrorist, loud, mighty, sore afraid).

Activists with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood is holding a fundraiser for a Democratic candidate for the House of Representatives.

Akram Elzend and Sameh Elhennawy are holding a fundraiser for Democratic Representative Gerry Connolly of Virginia later this month.  The invitations to the event promise “a direct conversation” with the Representative along with a chance for them to express their appreciation.

The fundraiser is catching the eye of watchdog groups because an organization cofounded by Elzend held a pro-Mohammed Morsi rally in New York that featured anti-Semitic displays.  Egyptian Americans for Democracy and Human Rights held a rally in front of the Saudi Arabian embassy where they said the Saudis were “dirtier than Jews” and that they were trying to “sell Egypt to the Jews.”

The leader of the group is called a “senior Muslim Brotherhood leader” in Arabic press accounts.

The two men heading the fundraiser are also listed as U.S. based cells of the group and identified on a list of Morsi supporters who issued an Arabic statement calling for Morsi to “cleanse the media and the police.”

  1. I know a lot of people will disagree with me here. If these individuals are American citizens they have every right to support whoever they choose. They have every right under the first Amendment to say whatever they choose.
    I don’t like it but I will defend their right just as I would expect mine to be defended as well. This is America. We do not censor and we do not prevent anyone who is Constitutionally qualified to run for office or receive support from anyone who is allowed by law.
