Air Force defends recruiting chaplains through Muslim Brotherhood front group

USAF ad for Islamic chaplainsIn yet another example of political correctness gone amok, the U.S. Air Force is recruiting military chaplains in the official magazine of a Muslim Brotherhood front organization.

The Air Force paid $5,000 to place a full-page ad in the March-April issue of “Islamic Horizons,” a magazine published by the Islamic Society of North America, according to the Clarion Project.

A May 1991 memo written by Mohamed Akram for the Shura Council of the Muslim Brotherhood noted the organizations intent to make the U.S. Sharia law compliant, and listed organizations that would help in that regard. Included among those was the Islamic Society of North America, according to

Furthermore, “FBI memos reveal that ISNA was identified as a Brotherhood front as early as 1987,” The Clarion Project reported.

Former Florida congressman Allen West wrote a blistering comment on the security problems political correctness creates on his Facebook page when the second Boston Marathon bomber was still a fugitive, according to the Daily Caller.

“Let me be very clear, the terrorist attack in Boston and evolving events indicate we have a domestic radical Islamic terror problem in America,” he wrote.

In his statement, he described the Islamic Society of North America as a front organization of the Muslim Brotherhood.

“We must no longer allow the disciples of political correctness and the acolytes of the Muslim Brotherhood (CAIR, ISNA, MPAC, MAS) to preach to us some misconceived definition of tolerance and subservience,” he wrote. “When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide.”

THe Air Force sent the following response to queries made by the Clarion Project about the ad:

“The Department of Defense does not endorse any one religion or religious organization, and provides free access of religion for all members of the military services.  The Department respects (and supports by its policy) the rights of others to their own religious beliefs, including the right to hold no beliefs. In order to recruit chaplains capable to provide for the diverse needs of Airmen and their families, Air Force chaplain recruiters advertise in a wide variety of religious organization publications,” the letter began.

“The Islamic Society of North America is one of many religious organizations recognized by the Department of Defense that satisfy the ecclesiastical requirements to endorse qualified religious ministry professionals to serve as chaplains within the Military Departments.”

I have a two word answer to the Air Force: Fort Hood.
