The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and nine other Muslim political action groups have formed a joint coalition to engage in political action in U.S. elections.

The new Muslim Brotherhood front is called the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO).

This front group held a press conference in mid-March to announce its formation and its alleged agenda of enhancing “civic and political participation in upcoming elections.”

According to CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad, “Muslim voters can be swing voters in key elections, especially in 2016, and we are aiming at that election to being a more visible participation from the Muslim community.” Awad has openly expressed support for the terrorist group Hamas.

Also speaking at the press conference was Osama Abu Irshaid of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), an anti-Israel group. According to Irshaid, Muslims “are a growing demographic, numbering in the millions, and it is time to organize ourselves so that we can fully participate productively and efficiently in the political process.” AMP also supports Hamas and works to indoctrinate students to hate Israel.

Irshaid continued: “We want to fully participate and engage in the civic process. We also want to ward off the evils of bigotry and Islamophobia and begin to define ourselves instead of allowing others – who don’t understand us, who fear us and even hate us – tell us how we should live and worship in this country.”
