“From 9 October, they are scheduled to meet in Washington DC with Democratic Congressmen and think tanks close to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.”
Affiliated Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) leader lauded Islamists' work, “despite the efforts of anti-Islamic media directed by Jews.”
Buenos Aires and Paris, 27 September 2018
Simon Wiesenthal Centre Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels and Latin America Representative, Dr. Ariel Gelblung, shared with the 35 member-state Organization of American States (OAS) Secretary-General, Luis Almagro, disturbing findings, exposed through the Argentine online Infobae (see link in Spanish):
The reportedly Islamist Deputy Secretary-General of the Jamaat-e-Islami, Abdur Razzaq, will be leading a ten-member Salafist extremist delegation - allegedly linked to the Taliban, Al-Qaeda and ISIS - to meet with political leaders across the Americas.
The Centre noted that “the itinerary begins on 9 October in Washington D.C., where the group is to be received, apparently, at the United States Congress by Democrat legislators and think-tanks close to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.”
“From 14 to 29 October, the group is scheduled to continue their visit in Mexico, Venezuela and Bolivia... with Ecuador and Uruguay still to be confirmed,” highlighted the Centre officials.
Jamaat-e-Islami was founded in Lahore, British India, in 1941, with the aim of galvanizing the Muslims of the Indian sub-continent, thus playing a politicized Islamic role in the partition resulting in Pakistan.
The Centre added, “Lesser known is its missionary success in the United States and Latin America, particularly in raising funds for its military role in Afghanistan, Libya and atrocities in Bangladesh... Jamaat is linked to ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) which, in 2015, raised 40 million dollars ostensibly for mosques..."

ICNA’s former President, Mohsen Ansari, and an active leader of Jamaat, recently lauded its work, “despite the efforts of anti-Islamic media directed by Jews,” he stated.
“Those that receive this group are probably ignorant of their guests’ role in financing, inculcating, arming and glorifying terrorism. This visit undermines new approaches to confronting terrorism in the region, such as last week’s Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay’s arrest of a Hezbollah leader in the lawless so-called ‘Triple Border’ region,” argued Samuels.
“This new wave of counter-terrorism was also expressed by Argentine President Macri, who - from the podium of the United Nations - called on Iran to cooperate in arresting the planners of the Israeli Embassy and AMIA Jewish Centre bombings in Buenos Aires, for which Teheran is responsable,” added Gelblung.

“We requested the immediate intervention of the OAS to alert the respective authorities along Abdur Razzaq’s itinerary, as to the group’s violent background and terror affinities. Through the OAS, the Centre is urging the listed host governments to cancel their program and deny this dangerous group entry,” concluded the Centre officials.
