Reporter: BEFORE

PRESIDENT OBAMA DEPARTED FOR

ISRAEL EARLIER THIS YEAR, HE

TOOK TIME TO CONSULT WITH

MOHAMMED MAJID.

MAJID HAS REPORTEDLY BECOME

A TRUSTED ADMINISTRATION

ADVISOR ON ISSUES RAISING

FROM IMMIGRATION TO

COUNTERTERRORISM POLICY.

WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS HAVE

PRAISED HIS ORGANIZATION,

THE ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF NORTH

AMERICA, OR ISNA.

BUT ACCORDING TO ONE

ANALYST, ISNA'S AGENDA IS

ANYTHING BUT GOOD.

THEY EXPLAINED THIS IN

THEIR 1991 SECRET MEMOS.

Reporter: RYAN WORKS

FOR THE CLARION PROJECT, AN

ORGANIZATION DEDICATE ID TO

EXPOSING RADICAL ISLAM.

HE TOLD CBN NEWS THAT

INTERNAL MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

DOCUMENTS NAMED ISNA AS ONE

OF THE 29 AMERICAN MUSLIM

ORGANIZATIONS WITH TIES TO

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

THE BROTHERHOOD GAVE BORTH

TO al-QAEDA AND HAMAS.

THEY HAVE TOLD US IN

THEIR OWN DOCUMENTS WHAT

THEIR AGENDA IS.

THEY SAID THEY'RE WORKING

AMERICA AS A KIND OF GRAND

JIHAD, AND DESTROYING THE

WESTERN CIVILIZATION FROM

WITHIN.

AND THEY SAY THEY WANT TO DO

IT AT THE HANDS OF NOT JUST

THE BELIEVERS, BUT AT THE

HANDS OF THE UNBELIEVERS,

US.

Reporter: ISNA BEGAN IN

1982, IN PLAINFIELD,

INDIANA.

A FOUNDING MEMBER WAS

CONVICTED IN A U.S. FEDERAL

COURT OF CONSPIRING TO

SUPPORT THE TERROR GROUP

PALESTINIAN ISLAM JIHAD.

AND THIS MAN WORKED CLOSELY

WITH ISLAM FOR YEARS.

HE IS CURRENTLY SERVING A

FEDERAL PRISON TERM.

ISNA HAS EXPANDED TO THE

CORRIDORS OF WASHINGTON,

D.C.

THE REMARKABLE THING IS

MANY OF THESE FOUNDERS,

WHICH HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED

IN TERRORISM CASES, ARE NOW

CONSULTING WITH THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

Reporter: INVESTIGATIVE

JOURNALIST PATRICK POOLE

SAYS ISNA'S FOUNDERS WERE

EVEN GIVEN A TOUR OF THE

WHITE HOUSE IN 2013.

THEY WERE MEETING WITH

SENIOR WHITE HOUSE

OFFICIALS, INCLUDING THE

HEAD OF THE OFFICE OF PUBLIC

ENGAGEMENT, WHO SAID THAT

ISNA WAS THE PRIMARY ISLAMIC

GROUP.

THAT THE WHITE HOUSE DOES

THEIR MUSLIM OUTREACH

THROUGH.

Reporter: IT WASN'T

LONG AGO THAT THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT HAD A FAR LESS

POSITIVE VIEW OF ISNA.

IN 2007, FEDERAL PROSECUTORS

NAMED THE GROUP AS AN

UNINDICTED CO-CONSPIRATOR IN

A TRIAL IN AMERICAN

HISTORY.

THE FOCUS OF THAT TRIAL WAS

AN ORGANIZATION CALLED THE

HOLY LAND FOUNDATION.

THE HOLY LAND FOUNDATION

WAS SPUN OFF OF ISNA, AND

HERE WE HAVE THE UNITED

STATES GOVERNMENT GOING IN

TO FEDERAL COURT SAYING

THESE ARE BAD GUYS, THEY'RE

SUPPORTING TERRORISM.

THEY'RE A FRONT FOR THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

AND AS SOON AS THEY LEAVE

FEDERAL COURT, THESE ARE OUR

OUTREACH PARTNERS.

Reporter: THAT OUTREACH

INCLUDES A ROLE FOR ISNA IS

SHAPING AMERICA'S POLICY.

MOHAMMED AJID IS A NUMBER OF

A GROUP THAT THAT QUOTE HAS

"VIOLENT ISLAMISM."

POOLE SAYS THE FOX IS

GUARDING THE HEN HOUSE.

WE SEE A REPEATED PATTERN

FROM F.B.I. REPORTS, FROM

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

EVIDENCE IN THESE TERRORISM

TRIALS, THAT GROUPS LIKE

ISNA AND THEIR MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD FRONTS, THEY'RE

HERE TO ISLAMISIZE AMERICA.

Reporter: ISNA DID NOT

RESPOND TO CBN NEWS' REQUEST

FOR COMMENT.

AS FOR THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION, ITS

RELATIONSHIP WITH ISNA

CONTINUES.

THEY MET WITH JOHN KERRY TO

DISCUSS THE LATEST ATTEMPT

AT PEACE TALKS BETWEEN

ISRAEL AND THE

PALESTINIANS.

THE WHITE HOUSE IS NOT

EMBARRASSED ABOUT THIS

RELATIONSHIP.

THEY PUBLICLY BRAG ABOUT

THIS RELATIONSHIP AND THE

FACT THEY'RE GOING TO

CONTINUE IT.

Reporter: AND IT IS NOT

JUST THE WHITE HOUSE WHERE

ISNA IS MAKING IN-ROADS.

THEY MEET WITH CHRISTIAN AND

JEWISH GROUPS AROUND THE

COUNTRY, AND AN ISNA LEADER

RECENTLY SPOKE AT THE

NATIONAL PRAYER MEETING AT

THE WHITE HOUSE THIS YEAR.
