      Islamism's Campus Club: The Muslim Students' Association
      by Jonathan Dowd-Gailey
      Middle East Quarterly
      Spring 2004

      The northern Virginia-based Muslim Students' Association (MSA) might
      easily be taken for a benign student religious group. It promotes
      itself as a benevolent, non-political entity devoted to the simple
      virtue of celebrating Islam and providing college students a healthy
      venue to develop their faith and engage in philanthropy. Along these
      lines, its constitution declares the MSA's mission as serving "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."[1]

      Today, over 150 MSA chapters exist on American college campuses
      (divided into five regional chapters), easily establishing this
      organization as the most extensive Muslim student organization in
      North America. A Washington, D.C.-based national office assists in
      the establishment of constituent chapters and oversees fundraising
      and conferences while steering a plethora of special committees
      and "Political Action Task Forces."

      Yet consider some of these recent activities of the MSA:

      At a meeting in Queensborough Community College in New York in March
      2003, a guest speaker named Faheed declared, "We reject the U.N.,
      reject America, reject all law and order. Don't lobby Congress or
      protest because we don't recognize Congress. The only relationship
      you should have with America is to topple it … Eventually there will
      be a Muslim in the White House dictating the laws of Shariah."[2]

      During an October 2000 anti-Israeli protest, former MSA president
      Ahmed Shama at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) stood
      before the Israeli consulate in Los Angeles, shouting "Victory to
      Islam! Death to the Jews!" MSA West president Sohail Shakr declared
      at the same rally, "the biggest impediment to peace [in the Middle
      East] has been the existence of the Zionist entity in the middle of
      the Muslim world."[3]

      Prior to September 11, 2001, the MSA formally assisted three Islamic
      charities in fundraising: the Holy Land Foundation, Global Relief,
      and Benevolence Foundation. After that date, all three were accused
      by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of having serious links
      to terrorism and were ordered closed. The MSA issued a formal
      statement of protest: "How three of the nation's largest Muslim
      charities could be made inoperable at the peak of the giving season
      of Ramadan seemed unbelievable."[4]

      This is only the tip of the iceberg. There is overwhelming evidence
      that the MSA, far from being a benign student society, is an overtly
      political organization seeking to create a single Muslim voice on
      U.S. campuses—a voice espousing Wahhabism, anti-Americanism, and anti-
      Semitism, agitating aggressively against U.S. Middle East policy, and
      expressing solidarity with militant Islamist ideologies, sometimes
      with criminal results.

      A Saudi Creation
      On its website, the MSA describes its emergence as spontaneous and
      disavows any link to foreign governments.[5] In fact, the creation of
      the MSA resulted from Saudi-backed efforts to found Islamic bodies
      internationally in the 1960s. Alex Alexiev of the Center for Security
      Policy states,

      The Saudis over the years set up a number of large front
      organizations, such as the World Muslim League, the World Assembly of
      Muslim Youth, the Al Haramain Foundation, and a great number of
      Islamic "charities." While invariably claiming that they were
      private, all of these groups were tightly controlled and financed by
      the Saudi government and the Wahhabi clergy.[6]

      In the United States, two leading Saudi-backed organizations were the
      MSA and the Islamic Society of North America (the MSA's adult
      counterpart), both of which received major funding, direction, and
      influence from Riyadh.

      Personnel, money, and institutional linkages bound these
      organizations together from their inception, and all roads led
      eventually to Riyadh. Ahmad Totonji, an MSA co-founder, later served
      as vice-president for the notorious Saudi SAAR Foundation (a network
      of charities named after Saudi benefactor Sulayman `Abd al-`Aziz ar-
      Rajhi), which closed down in 2001 after federal agents discovered
      links to terrorist groups.[7] Another MSA co-founder, Ahmad Sakr,
      served on a number of Saudi-affiliated organizations, such as the
      World Council of Mosques. The MSA is very much a result of
      Saudi "petro-Islam" diplomacy.

      Current estimates suggest that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia spends $4
      billion annually on international aid, with two-thirds of that sum
      devoted to strictly Islamic development. Much of this largesse has
      ended up at Islamist organizations like MSA. Funded through private
      donations or through foundations and charities (only some of which
      the MSA officially reports),[8] MSA offers its Saudi benefactors a
      powerful tool. However, until the MSA's tax records are made public
      (on January 14, 2004, the Senate Finance Committee publicized a list
      of Islamic organizations whose financial records are sought,
      including the MSA),[9] the exact extent of foreign funding for the
      organization cannot be known.

      But even without the tax records, there is plenty of evidence for the
      MSA's strident advocacy of the Saudi-style Wahhabi interpretation of
      Islam. In "Wahhabism: A Critical Essay," Hamid Algar of the
      University of California-Berkeley writes,

      Some Muslim student organizations have functioned at times as Saudi-
      supported channels for the propagation of Wahhabism abroad,
      especially in the United States … Particularly in the 1960s and
      1970s, no criticism of Saudi Arabia would be tolerated at the annual
      conventions of the MSA. The organization has, in fact, consistently
      advocated theological and political positions derived from radical
      Islamist organizations, including the Muslim Brotherhood and Jamaati

      The MSA has played a major role in spreading Wahhabism. "Its numerous
      local chapters," Algar explains, "would make available at every
      Friday prayer large stacks of the [Mecca-based] World Muslim League's
      publications, in both English and Arabic. Although the MSA
      progressively diversified its connections with Arab states, official
      approval of Wahhabism remained strong."[11]

      Stephen Schwartz goes further, stating in his June 2003 testimony to
      the U.S. Senate's Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security,

      Shia and other non-Wahhabi Muslim community leaders estimate that 80
      percent of American mosques out of a total ranging between an
      official estimate of 1,200 and an unofficial figure of 4-6,000 are
      under Wahhabi control … Wahhabi control over mosques means control of
      property, buildings, appointment of imams, training of imams, content
      of preaching including faxing of Friday sermons from Riyadh, Saudi
      Arabia, and of literature distributed in mosques and mosque
      bookstores, notices on bulletin boards, and organizational and
      charitable solicitation … The main organizations that have carried
      out this campaign are the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA),
      which originated in the Muslim Students' Association of the U.S. and
      Canada (MSA), and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

      The MSA reflects a prime characteristic of militant Islamic groups: a
      refusal to acknowledge the legitimacy of secular society and personal
      spirituality. The MSA's Starters Guide contains an open call to
      Islamicize campus politics:

      It should be the long-term goal of every MSA to Islamicize the
      politics of their respective university … the politicization of the
      MSA means to make the MSA more of a force on internal campus
      politics. The MSA needs to be a more "In-your-face" association.[13]

      All of this, the guide explains, results from the MSA's duty "to
      bring morality back into the campus" and to convince students to
      practice Islam "as a complete way of life."

      In the process, the MSA preaches a creed of "special treatment"
      and "self-segregation" that sounds reminiscent of, and may actually
      borrow from, Afro-centric campus politics of the 1990s. Demanding
      that universities be more "Muslim-friendly," the MSA's newly
      established National Religious Accommodations Task Force (RATF)
      directs local MSA chapters to insist that universities provide
      separate housing and meals for Muslims only.[14]

      The politics of segregation practiced by the MSA have included
      blanket marginalization of its own female members. Shabana Mir,
      writing for the American Muslim, summarizes the plight of Muslim
      women on campus:

      It is particularly important to know what is happening with Muslim
      women pursuing higher education. Many Muslim women in MSAs are
      working toward the justice and the equality that Islam ordains for
      humankind. A survey of sisters' participation in MSAs conducted in
      1994 shows that women's activism in MSAs is at an abysmally low level
      due in large part to "brother domination." A related problem
      is "there is a common attitude that strict segregation should exist
      between the genders and that sisters should not appear in public!" On
      an MSA mailing list, a popular article gives a long list of
      conditions that women must fulfill to gain access to the mosque.
      These include obtaining permission from her male guardian, wearing
      hijab [veil], not wearing "fancy clothes" or perfume, not mixing with
      men, leaving immediately after the prayer, and so on![15]

      Political Monopoly
      Just as the MSA promotes a single theology, it similarly projects a
      monolithic political voice, one openly antagonistic to Muslim
      American diversity and in complete opposition to existing U.S.
      foreign policy. Although Muslim students in the United States exhibit
      the full range of political views found in America today, the MSA
      invariably adopts lopsided adversarial positions, as in these three

      Patriot Act: The MSA categorically opposes this legislation,
      describing it as "infamous." Chapters across the country have
      agitated against it, as well as against virtually every other
      security initiative since 9/11. At an MSA rally at the University of
      Pennsylvania, the co-chair of Muslims for Justice declared, "the
      Patriot Act is sending us in a backwards spiral, where the
      destination is chaos."[16]

      Afghanistan: The MSA opposed the military intervention against the
      Taliban regime, instead calling for a "police investigation." MSA
      National further advised that the entire matter would be best
      addressed at the International Criminal Tribunal. MSA chapters
      organized rallies demanding a ceasefire and held "Solidarity Fasts"
      to honor Afghans who, the MSA charged, would face massive starvation
      as a result of the war.

      Iraq: Even before the crisis of 2003, the MSA opposed every U.S.
      policy towards Iraq over the last twelve years. It strongly opposed
      the United Nations (U.N.)-authorized sanctions, claiming that the
      sanctions were "nothing short of a systematic genocide being carried
      out against civilian people."[17] The MSA condemned former president
      Clinton's 1998 strike against Iraq following Saddam Hussein's ouster
      of U.N. weapons inspectors, declaring that its "brothers and sisters
      in Iraq are once again being terrorized by the self-appointed
      champions of democracy."[18]

      MSA National consistently pledges support for the war on terror and
      claims to merely "represent" student views. But it maintains control
      of the political agenda, leaving the chapters simply to mobilize
      support. Its chapters pointedly ignored the New York Shi`ites who
      held vigils for their Iraqi brethren and the Michigan Kurds who
      rallied for Hussein's ouster. The MSA's decision to mobilize against
      the Bush administration took place without public debate and with no
      attempt at representing diverse views within the MSA. This approach
      is in keeping with the MSA's goal, as its official literature states,
      that the student body "be convinced that there is such a thing as a

      Muslim students who refuse to submit to the MSA's position often find
      themselves harassed by their MSA peers. Oubai Shahbandar, an Arizona
      State University (ASU) student, expressed support for the Iraqi
      invasion and suffered condemnation from MSA members. Shahbandar

      When I, a proud American of Arab descent and Muslim faith, took a
      stand on behalf of the liberation of my oppressed Iraqi brethren, the
      ASU Muslim Students' Association personally attacked me for not being
      a real Muslim and announced to the ASU student body in editorials in
      the student paper that I, Oubai Mohammad Shahbandar, was a hater of
      Arabs and Muslims.

      Shahbandar also explains what the MSA preaches on his campus:

      We are told America's foreign policy is based on racist neo-
      imperialism; we are taught that national security is a foul epithet
      to be reviled; we are told the Jews and Israel are to blame for the
      hatred against us.[20]

      Playing the Victim
      The MSA's adoption of the politics of victimization is reminiscent of
      wider campus trends of the 1990s. In the days immediately after the
      9/11 attacks, the MSA stated,

      In light of the Bush administration's casting blame for the attack on
      Osama Bin Laden, MSA National recognizes that Muslim students on
      college campuses will be subject to backlash.

      Ominously, an "awareness" document describes post 9/11 Homeland
      Security policies in the same terms as do extremist Muslims abroad—
      that is, as an assault explicitly against Islam. America: Post 9/11,
      an MSA document, states,

      Soon after [9/11], the attacks against our religion began at the
      hands of the media and the political establishment.[21]

      Not surprisingly, the MSA has expressed resistance, outrage, and
      cynicism with virtually every high-profile arrest of Muslim Americans
      charged with conspiring with terrorists. When former University of
      South Florida (USF) professor Sami al-Arian was arrested for
      directing U.S. operations for the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic
      Jihad, the Florida campus MSA chapter held a press conference and

      We come before you today on behalf of the Muslim Student Association
      at USF as well as the National Muslim Student Association of the U.S.
      and Canada to express our shock, deep concern, and plea for justice
      regarding the recent arrests of two USF professors, Dr. Sami al-Arian
      and Sameeh Hammoudeh … we are concerned that the USF professors were
      arrested for their political views.

      The problem is that the MSA has been unable or unwilling to recognize
      that some Muslims, including its members, have crossed the line
      between political advocacy and material support for jihadist
      activities. In fact, MSA members and activities have repeatedly
      surfaced in police investigations. Some of these arrests received
      national media coverage, including the following:

      In February 2003, former head of the MSA chapter at the University of
      Idaho, Sami Omar al-Hussayen, was arrested with an indictment that he
      raised over $300,000 for the Islamic Assembly of North America, a
      group under federal investigation for funding terrorist groups. FBI
      agents believed Hussayen was communicating with two radical clerics,
      nicknamed the "awakening sheikhs," known for inspiring young Muslims
      to pursue the path of jihad and credited as major ideological mentors
      to Osama bin Laden.[22]

      In April 2003, the home of Arizona State University MSA president
      Hassan Alrafea was raided by the FBI, whose agents confiscated his
      computer and unspecified documents.[23]

      Extreme Friends
      In 2002, when the number of anti-Semitic attacks in Europe hit a
      twelve-year high, French Jewish leader Roger Cukierman observed a
      peculiar phenomenon on the European street —a loose fusing of extreme
      Left, Right, and Muslim political forces—what Cukierman terms
      the "brown-green-red alliance."[24] The three disparate
      constituencies have incompatible ideologies, but all three have a
      shared hatred for the pluralized world order, globalized market
      economies, U.S. preponderance, and the state of Israel. Cukierman has
      observed these forces forming an alliance of convenience in the post-
      9/11 world with potentially dangerous results.

      The same pattern is also emerging in the United States with groups of
      the extreme Left forging bonds with specific Muslim organizations,
      and here again we find the MSA figures prominently. Given the MSA's
      propensity for radical politics in a campus environment, it is no
      surprise that it has become arguably the Muslim organization most
      enmeshed with American leftists. Consider the following:

      Perhaps as a reward for its total opposition to every U.S. policy
      since the September 2001 attacks, the MSA has been given a seat on
      the steering committee for International ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War
      and End Racism). ANSWER is an organization dedicated to defending
      rogue states and fighting "U.S. imperialism," and has been
      distinguished by its ability to organize the largest peace
      demonstrations in North America. ANSWER was formed by International
      Action Center, a communist organization that supports Stalinist
      regimes worldwide, including North Korea and Hussein's Iraq. [25]

      In its aggressive protest activities against recent Middle East wars,
      the MSA has developed strong working ties with numerous activist
      groups of the extreme Left. Among them: Free Palestine Alliance,
      Nicaragua Network, Kensington Welfare Rights Union, Mexico Solidarity
      Network, Korea Truth Commission, Young Communist League, Young
      Peoples' Socialist League, and Black Radical Congress.

      As these examples suggest, the MSA boasts institutional ties with a
      host of radical issue-specific activist groups, all of them
      vehemently opposed to U.S. policy, and many of them openly anti-

      The Center for Security Policy's Alex Alexiev argues,

      The majority of Muslim Student Associations at U.S. colleges are
      dominated by Islamist and anti-American agendas, as are most of the
      numerous Islamic centers and schools financed by the Saudis.
      Intolerance and outright rejection of American values and democratic
      ideals are often taught also in the growing number of Deobandi
      schools that are frequently subsidized by the Saudis.[26]

      The following examples illustrate both the degree and pervasiveness
      of hate-America vitriol that characterize the MSA:

      Taliban propaganda is featured on the website of the University of
      Southern California MSA chapter.[27]

      One featured article in Al-Talib (a magazine developed by the UCLA
      chapter of the MSA and not affiliated with the Taliban of
      Afghanistan) entitled, "The Spirit of Jihad," praised Osama bin Laden
      as a "prominent Muslim activist." The article goes on to say,

      When we hear someone refer to the great mujahideen Osama bin Laden as
      a `terrorist,' we should defend our brother and refer to him as a
      freedom fighter; someone who has forsaken wealth and power to fight
      in Allah's cause and speak out against oppressors. [28]
      Another Al-Talib article entitled "Americanization" states,

      A dangerous weapon has once again been unfurled by the U.S. military
      in this War on Terrorism … This weapon comes in the form of cultural
      warfare … In this new War on Terrorism, the colossal brunt of this
      production machine is now squarely targeted at the Muslim population.
      At an Al-Talib event to offer support for Imam Jamil al-Amin,
      convicted of killing a policeman, guest speaker Imam Abdul-Alim Musa

      When you fight [the U.S.] you are fighting someone that is superior
      in criminality and Nazism … the American criminalizer is the most
      skillful oppressor the world has ever known …They beat the British at
      everything, isn't that right? They are a better colonizer, a better
      murderer, a better killer, a better liar, a better thief, a better
      infiltrator than old British.[30]
      This anti-Americanism blends together almost seamlessly with a
      virulent discourse against the Jews and Israel. Consider the

      At the 2001 MSA West conference, hosted by UCLA, cleric Imam Muhammad
      al-Asi stated,

      Israel is as racist as apartheid could ever be … you can take a Jew
      out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the Jew.[31]
      The MSA continues to celebrate violence against Israel on its
      websites. At the MSA Northwest site, for example, images of Hamas
      suicide squads and child soldiers are proudly displayed above
      jihadist poetry, whose verse (erratically capitalized) celebrates

      two soldiers spotted me in their sight … i had to blast 4 shots
      hitting each one in the face and waist. a trace of blood drips from
      my arm as i make my away thru streets with an injured zionist as a
      hostage … seen a group of israeli soldiers run out and began pulling
      the trigger when sounds of rounds began playing a deadly melody. Each
      gun dropped two …[32]
      In 2002, the MSA at the University of Michigan helped host the Second
      National Student Conference for Palestine Solidarity Movement. At
      that conference, one of the guest speakers was ex-University of
      Florida professor Sami al-Arian, who is now awaiting trial on
      terrorism-related charges.

      Ironically, although one of the founding missions of the MSA is to
      increase favorable awareness of Muslim life among non-Muslims, the
      effect of the MSA's activities is the opposite: they confirm the
      worst suspicions of American society at large. The MSA's refusal to
      identify jihadists and jihadist sympathizers within its ranks, its
      indiscriminate opposition to U.S. policies following the September 11
      attacks, its vitriolic anti-American and anti-Israeli rhetoric, and
      its solidarity with "Leftover Left" radical activist organizations,
      together reinforce an image that the MSA, and by extension, Muslim
      college students, are a divisive, angry, and potentially violent
      group on our campuses. By monopolizing the Muslim student voice in
      America with "radical chic" to create a "single Muslim bloc," an
      opportunity to forge a healthy discourse on the diverse attitudes of
      Muslim students is lost to the confrontational language of radical
      dissent and resistance.

      Universities that host student organizations have an obligation to
      enforce basic standards of conduct, standards that the MSA has
      clearly breached. At the very least, MSA's most egregious behavior
      must face censure from those responsible for monitoring student
      conduct. University administrators must unchain themselves from
      cultural relativism and the ideology of "validation" and deal
      squarely with such misdeeds.

      More importantly, however, the problem of the Muslim Students'
      Association illustrates the great question that confronts the West
      today: how does it cultivate liberalism in Muslim communities living
      at home and abroad? Just as the U.S. policy of détente with the Arab
      world collapsed after September 11, to be replaced by a "forward
      strategy of democracy," it may be time to adopt a "forward strategy"
      within U.S. borders, focused on promoting moderate voices in mosques
      and campuses. To improve campus life for Muslims and non-Muslims
      alike, universities should work with moderate students to inaugurate
      a new Muslim students' organization, one that eschews the radical
      politics of the "old world" in favor of authenticity, diversity, and
      integration. A new Muslim student organization would return to the
      primary mission of religiously-based campus groups—to celebrate and
      share in the fellowship of faith.
