EXCLUSIVE: Top Muslim Brotherhood/HAMAS Official Infiltrated NASA, Now Iraqi Ambassador to Japan; ICE/DoJ Ties

A telephone directory is the most interesting exhibit in the ongoing federal trial against officials of a charity accused of being a HAMAS fundraising entity.
It’s evidence that the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated NASA and now has a part in Iraq’s post-Saddam government.
During recent testimony at the ongoing trial, an FBI agent testified that operatives of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development were part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s efforts to infiltrate the United States on behalf of HAMAS.
An exhibit introduced during her testimony is a 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document outlining the organizations goals in America, via HAMAS, as “a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
Along with that document, Special Agent Lara Burns authenticated a 1992 Muslim Brotherhood phone book and corporate directory. It listed the names and numbers of the Muslim Brotherhood leadership in the United States. Among the fifteen names listed as “Members of the Board of Directors” is “G. Aljumaily.”
With the help of private investigator Bill Warner (who’s done a great deal of ground-breaking investigations of Islamic terrorism), I’ve confirmed that the phone number listed is that of Dr. Ghanim Al-Jumaily.
That’s significant because Al-Jumaily worked at the highest levels of NASA as a jet propulsion engineer on the Mars Rover Team and in that capacity had high-level security clearances and access to classified information. And he’s now Iraq’s Ambassador to Japan, a post he’s held since late 2004.
In the Muslim Brotherhood directory, Al-Jumaily is listed as being in charge of the Iraq Committee for the American branch of the Brotherhood. Whether that means he was in charge of propaganda in favor of then-Saddam-controlled Iraq or raising money for Hussein is unclear.
Regardless, as chief of the Detroit-area Islamic charity, LIFE For Relief and Development (a charity about which I’ve written a great deal, both in the New York Post and on this site) for over a decade, Al-Jumaily performed both services and helped fund the Brotherhood’s HAMAS division. In the late 1990s LIFE–America’s largest Islamic charity–openly declared on its federal tax forms that it sent millions to a group the FBI identified as HAMAS’ Jordanian operation. In 2002, Jumaily and LIFE organized the trip for three anti-war U.S. Congressmen to go to Iraq to meet with Saddam Hussein and see his version of the country just months before the U.S. invasion. (The trip was paid for by Shakir Alkhafaji, the only American named in the oil-for-food scandal that has not been prosecuted.)
And the presence of Jumaily on the Brotherhood’s American board confirms what has long been known: that the Brotherhood is part of Al-Qaeda and should be put on the State Department terrorist list. LIFE’s founding resident agent is tied to Al-Qaeda, and one of its former employees, Abdel-Jabbar Hamdan, is also tied to terrorists. The charity is believed to be a major funder of Al-Qaeda insurgents in Iraq, one of the reasons the U.S. Army raided its Iraq offices in 2004 and the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force raided its Michigan offices, last September. Under Al-Jumaily’s leadership, LIFE held several private fundraisers, including one in Los Angeles, where officials implied that the money would go to “more Fallujahs.” The keynote speaker at the fundraiser was Wagdi Mohammed Ghoneim, an Islamic cleric who has since been deported because of his meetings with two of the 9/11 hijackers.
But Al-Jumaily didn’t just carry out fundraising for the Brotherhood and aid Saddam Hussein. He helped spread propaganda and gain access to top public officials. Under Al-Jumaily’s direction, LIFE spokesman Mohammed Alomari wrote a book alleging the United States was created by the Jews as a Zionist plot. His website claimed Jews and the U.S. “organized” the 9/11 attacks. And Al-Jumaily had access to government officials at the highest levels. Top FBI, ICE and Justice Department officials repeatedly broke pita with him.
That includes current U.S. Attorney Stephen Murphy III (a Bush Federal Court of Appeals nominee), past Bush U.S. Attorney Jeffrey Collins, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Special Agent in Charge for Michigan/Ohio, Brian Moskowitz, and several FBI Special Agents in Charge. Of more concern, is the tight relationship between these individuals and American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee official, Imad Hamad, an FBI award revokee and “former” Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine Terrorist. As I’ve repeatedly documented on this site, Hamad works very closely with LIFE. His ADC lay President is LIFE’s General Counsel, and Hamad was credited with getting LIFE USAID accreditation and money. Hamad and LIFE officials went on several trips to Syria and Lebanon together, which officials suspect were trips involving money-laundering for terrorists.
Now it’s clear that Hamad is a top associate of–and working in concert with–the Muslim Brotherhood’s and HAMAS’ U.S. operation. Will Feds finally stay away from him? Unfortunately, don’t count on it.
When the new Iraqi government announced its appointment of Al-Jumaily to an ambassadorship, Shi’ite Muslims protested outside LIFE’s offices. They maintained that Al-Jumaily was a puppet of Hussein and helped fund the murders of their relatives.
But now we know, he was far more than that–a high-ranking member of the Muslim Brotherhood. And he helped carry out its “grand jihad [against] Western civilization.”
