ACT! for America
THE MUSLIM STUDENT ASSOCIATION
**WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW**
THE MSA MISSION STATEMENT: "to serve the best interest of Islam and Muslims in the United States and Canada so as to enable them to practice Islam as a complete way of life." The MSA is the most visible and influential Islamic student organization in North America.
THE MSA HISTORY: Founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the MSA was named in a May 1991 Muslim Brotherhood memorandum as one of the Brotherhood's likeminded "organizations of our friends" who shared the common goal of destroying America and turning it into a Muslim nation. These "friends" were described by the Brotherhood as groups that could help teach Muslims " that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands ... so that ... God's religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions."
From its inception, MSA had close links with the extremist Muslim World League, whose chapters' websites have featured not only Osama bin Laden's propaganda, but also publicity-recruiting campaigns for Wahhabi subversion of the Chechen struggle in Russia. According to author and Islam expert Stephen Schwartz, the MSA is a key lobbying organization for the Wahhabi sect of Islam.
MSA chose not to endorse or participate in the May 14, 2005 "Free Muslims March Against Terror," an event whose stated purpose was to "send a message to the terrorists and extremists that their days are numbered ... [and to send] a message to the people of the Middle East, the Muslim world and all people who seek freedom, democracy and peaceful coexistence that we support them."
2005 MSA CONFERENCE AT USC: At the 7th annual MSA West Conference held at the University of Southern California in January 2005, former MSA UCLA member Ahmed Shama said: "We want to restore Islam to the leadership of society. … The goal … is the reestablishment of the Islamic form of government." Shama praised Hamas and Hezbollah for being "uncompromising" on their principles, and for refusing to "shake hands with the other side." He identified Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood as part of the "mainstream Islamic movement." He praised Hamas' resolve that "the only solution to the current occupation is military resistance. Not shaking hands. Not dialogue." And he declared, "We have an obligation to make sure that our MSAs are part of the global Islamic movement."
