SAAR Network

Suleiman Abdulaziz al-Rajhi established the SAAR Network of companies, also known as the Safa Group, which included: [2] [3]

  • All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS)

  • Yasin Qadi - founder of Ptech, accused of being one of Osama bin Laden's chief money launderers, served as a guide to Jimmy Carter and Richard Cheney on trips to Saudi Arabia. [8]

The SAAR network subsidiary IIIT created the term Islamophobia" as a way to "beat up their critics."[9]

Popular Arab and Islamic Congress

The Popular Arab and Islamic Congress was hosted by Hassan Turabi in 1991. Attendees included:[10]

  • Ibrahim Shoukry of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood
  • Ayman Zawahiri of Egyptian Islamic Jihad
  • al-Jama'a al-Islamiyya
  • Eritrea Islamic Front
  • Oromo Liberation Front
  • Iran
  • Saad al-Tikriti of Iraq
  • The Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood
  • The Lebanese Muslim Brotherhood
  • Imad Mughniyah of Hezbollah
  • Libya
  • Jama'at-i Islami
  • Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP)
  • Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)
  • Yasser Arafat of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)
  • Palestine Islamic Jihad
  • Hamas
  • Abu Sayyaf
  • Osama bin Laden
  • The Syrian Muslim Brotherhood
  • Rachid Ghannouchi of Ennahda
  • The Islah party of Yemen

After the collapse of BCCI, Hassan Turabi gave Osama bin Laden the task of creating a replacement.[11]

In July 1991, the criminal BCCI bank is shut down (see July 5, 1991) ... Robinson writes, “Without a system by which money could be transferred around the world invisibly, it would be relatively simple for terrorist funds to be traced. Dealing with this crisis fell to al-Turabi. In desperation he turned to Osama.… The future of the struggle could come to rest on Osama’s shoulders.” Over the next several months, bin Laden and a small team of financial experts work on a plan to replace the functions of BCCI. Bin Laden already knows many of the main Islamist backers from his experience in the Afghan war. “During the summer of 1991 he discreetly made contact with many of the wealthiest of these individuals, especially those with an international network of companies.… Within months, Osama unveiled before an astonished al-Turabi what he called ‘the Brotherhood Group.’” This is apparently a reference to the Muslim Brotherhood. Robinson says this group is made up of 134 Arab businessmen with a collective wealth of many billions of dollars. The network will effectively replace BCCI for Islamist militants. [Robinson, 2001, pp. 138-139]

[87]

Islamists: Inclusion Is Better Than Exclusion
A particular issue facing many states is the rise of Islamist parties. This can be interpreted as a threat to stability or a reaction to dynamic social forces and the failure of governments to keep pace with change.
In dealing with burgeoning democracies, a general finding is that outside parties should support integration of Islamist parties into political system rather than exclusion. The key is that inclusion keeps moderates moderate, rather than forcing them outside the power structures, into possible violence.

Soliya co-founder Omar Amanat is the cousin of Clinton aide Huma Abedin and Marvel vice president Sana Amanat.[88] As of 2011 Soliya was chaired by Twitter investor Suhail Rizvi and had merged with the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations.

  • Norbert Dorr - President
  • Mona Mourshed - VP

  • Kevin Steinberg - Secretary. President of Purpose Action
  • Peter Voser
  • Lubna Olayan - CEO of Saudi British Bank
  • Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka - head of UN Women
  • Helene Gayle

Under the direction of Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, UN Women "became a feminist missionary organization"[104]

This is not hyperbolia, but the result of a official UN policy known as "gender-mainstreaming"...
"Gender mainstreaming" basically means that all (and I mean all) UN organizations, programs and actions must account for "gender equality." UN Women is given the ulimate authority to decide what this actually means, who is/isn't in compliance and what they need to do to account for "gender equality". UN Women has essentially been given almost complete control over the UN system.

Mlambo-Ngcuka has said she was headhunted for the position by what another activist described as "vested interests".[105]

The board of the UN Foundation at this time included Igor Ivanov of the Russian International Affairs Council and Kathy Calvin of B Team, another name for the Avaaz network.[46] The Wall Street Journal reported on the disappearance of Western billionaires from the website of the Russia Direct Investment Fund at the time that independent journalists began to report on these activities.[106]

Documenting Hate Initiative

Meedan and CAIR are part of the Documenting Hate Initiative[129] which was founded to oppose the presidency of Donald Trump[130] and counts political opposition to the Muslim Public Affairs Council's Safe Space initative as a "hate crime".[131] The project serves as a conduit for propaganda from Hamas and the SAAR network directly to American newsrooms.

The project is endorsed by the Anti-Defamation League which is funded by the Omidyar Network[132] that is partnered[133] with the Global Steering Group / Social Finance network of British agent Sir Ronald Cohen.[134] ADL representative Oren Segal was a member of William Morris Endeavor[135] which is run by Ari Emanuel, the brother of President Obama's chief of staff Rahm Emanuel.
