6. The Muslim Brotherhood in North America (Canadians with Leadership Roles)



17.  Canadians with Leadership Roles in the Muslim Brotherhood – Selected Examples

A number of Canadian names repeatedly occur in a variety of leadership roles in Muslim Brotherhood adherent organizations in Canada (and the USA).   The most prominent of these are the siblings Haddara (Wael and Yasser) and Dr. Jamal Badawi along with Dr. Ingrid Mattson and Dr. Sheema Khan. This list should be considered as a short list of key players, not an exhaustive list of the leadership or adherents in the Muslim Brotherhood in Canada.
A brief biography of the following persons is provided here for general information:
Dr. Wael Haddara
Dr. Jamal Badawi
Dr. Yasser Haddara 
Dr. Ingrid Mattson  
Dr. Sheema Khan 
Dr. Mohamed Bekkari
Dr. Rida Beshir
Abdalla Idris (also Abdalla Idris Ali)
Khadija Haffajee
Assem Fadel 
Abdallah Assafiri
Ayman Sharawi 
Chiheb Battikh
Daood Zwink 
Khalid Tarabain 

Dr. Wael Haddara (also known as Al-Muraqqash Al-Akbar)
Dr. Haddara may be the most high profile Muslim Brotherhood adherent in Canada with the possible exception of Dr. Jamal Badawi (below).   Dr. Haddara, despite his relatively young age (Born Egypt 1971) has been associated to Muslim Brotherhood adherent organizations for at least 23 years (as of 2014).  Dr. Haddara first entered university at the age of 14 – a testament to his intelligence and promise at a young age.
Dr. Haddara has had an affiliation with a number of Muslim Brotherhood related individual and organizations such as the President of Egypt, CAIR-CAN, the MSA and the Muslim Association of Canada where he was on the Board of Directors from 1997[i] forward.
He is also listed by CRA as being on the board of directors of the London (Ontario) Mosque as of 2013.
The Qatar based Al-Jazeera news organization shows his profile as:
Dr. Wael Haddara served as an adviser to former President Mohamed Morsi during his election campaign in 2012 and continued to serve as an adviser over the course of the president's year in office.[ii]
President Morsi was the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt in 2012 and 2013.
On June 5, 2013, Wael Haddara (left), senior advisor to then Muslim Brotherhood-backed Egyptian President Morsi and Essam El-Hadad (right), the President’s assistant on Foreign Affairs, stood in front of 10 Downing Street, after a meeting in preparation of Morsi’s visit in the UK. Morsi was ousted from power before his visit could take place.

According to United Nation’s documents, Dr. Haddara was listed not only as an advisor to the President of Egypt, but was one of the select few listed as an “Alternative Representative” for the government of Egypt. [iv]  To give a sense of the seniority of this position, it is worth looking at the ranks and position of his co-equals who occupied the same position as “Alternative Representatives.”  They were:
H.E. Ms. Somaya Mohamed Saad, Ambassador, Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs for
Multilateral Economic Relations and International Cooperation

H.E. Mr. Hesham Badr, Ambassador, Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs for International
Organizations and Institutions

Mr. Ayman Aly Sayed Ahmed, Adviser to the President

Mr. Wael Mahmoud Haddara, Adviser to the President

Mr. Osama Abdelkhalek, Minister Plenipotentiary, Deputy Permanent Representative to the
United Nations

Dr. Wael Haddara’s brother, an Associate Professor at McMaster University[v], has also been identified as being close to the Muslim Brotherhood’s President Morsi as well.  Dr. Yasser Haddara (Ph.D. Electrical Engineering, Stanford University, 1997) was identified as being a communications aide to President Morsi in 2012.  Yasser Haddara has been on the Board of directors of Islamic Relief USA and Islamic Relief Canada[vi] as well as having been on the board of the SISO immigration services organization in Hamilton, Ontario. 
While visiting the city of London (England) in July of 2013, Dr. Haddara was reported in the press to be there to address the House of Lords.[vii] He was quoted in the press as saying:
My message to the House of Lords and to Britons in general is that they need to decide what they stand for,” said Dr Haddara. “Is it expediency, to deal with whoever is in power, or do they actually believe in democracy?[viii]
Dr. Wael Haddara has also served on the Board of Directors of CAIR-CAN.   He first began serving of this board in 2002 and remained there until April 2012 when he resigned “due to his desire to pursue other community work and professional commitments.”[ix] At all times he was on the board of directors of CAIR CAN, another board member was Dr. Jamal Badawi.  Dr. Badawi was identified by the Muslim Brotherhood of North America has being on its board of directors (Shura Council). He was also identified in the 1991 General Memorandum as being a key figure in the future of the movement in North America.[x]
Dr. Wael Haddara has also been on the board of directors of the Muslim Association of Canada from 2002.[xi]  He suddenly left the board in 2012 when he resigned for “personal reasons.”[xii]  This would have been about the same time he left for Egypt to become an advisor to President Morsi during his campaign.
The Muslim Association of Canada is noteworthy for its open declaration that it supports and follows Hassan Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood in 1928.  Its own website, www.macnet.ca describes the MAC in the following manner:
We believe that the efforts of Al-Banna and subsequent generations of the Muslim Brotherhood remain the truest reflection of Islamic practice in the modern era.[xiii] 
Dr. Haddara has been active with Muslim Brotherhood organizations since at least 1991 when he was listed as the contact person for the Memorial University Muslim Students Association.  The address given for him at the time was 13 Jasper Street, St. John’s NF, Canada, A1A 4B4.  An individual by the name of Marsudi Kisworo had sent out a request for MSA contacts in Canada and the USA looking for contact names and addresses.  Wael Haddara had responded giving himself as the contact point.[xiv]
In 1992 and 1993, Wael Haddara states in an email that he has been collecting a list of MSAs in Canada and the USA.[xv]  As a result of his efforts from the summer of 1992 to January 1993, he had compiled a list of contact persons, snail mail addresses, phone numbers and emails for a variety of MSAs.  At that time, Wael Haddara was using a McMaster University email system and requests that students respond to him at haddara@mcmaster.ca .   The list compiled shows that the contact person for McMaster University is Bassem Masri, but the contact email address is haddara@mmmaster.ca or 9018765@mcmaster.ca .   The email itself states:
Assalamu alaikum,
Please find below a list of MSAs that I have been collecting
since last summer. The list is not too bad in terms of numbers. However,
quite a LARGE number of MSAs remain to send their information. So if
you do not find your MSA's information below, please mail me at

                                haddara@mcmaster.ca

with the following information :

                Institution : Name of University/College
                Address                    : Snail Mail address
                Contact Person : Person in Charge of Mail/communication
                Phone # : of MSA or person above
                E-mail : E-mail address of MSA or person(s) above
                Current until : When is this info useless ??

a lot. If anybody wants to get copies of the list as it is updated,
please send me your address and I will put you on a list ....
Wa jazakumullahu khairan,

Wassalam
Wael

Dr. Haddara has also used the alias names Abu-l- 'Ataheya and Al-Muraqqash Al-Akbar.[xvi]  In the 1993 email concerning the compilation list of MSAs, he sends an email signed “Wael” but the “from” line shows the name Abu-l- 'Ataheya.  The reply address and the suggested email for further updates are both listed as Haddara.
Date: 11 Jan 1993 18:37:55 -0400 (EDT)
From: Abu-l- 'Ataheya HADDARA@SSCvax.CIS.McMaster.CA


Dr. Haddara used the name Al-Muraqqash Al-Akbar on occasion, such as when he was signing a petition in 1992 to set up a new group on the web which would discuss matters related to Bosnia. The group was to be called soc.culture.bih.  One signer of the petition gave his name as Al-Muraqqash Al-Akbar and gave his email address as:
        Al-Muraqqash Al-Akbar HADDARA@SSCvax.CIS.McMaster.CA

Note that the email address given by Al-Muraqqash Al-Akbar  is HADDARA@SSCvax.CIS.McMaster.CA which is the same email address given by Wael Haddara when compiling the MSA list.

In his role as the President of the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), Dr. Haddara was co-sponsoring the establishment of a new chair in Islamic studies at Huron College. The partner in this funding effort was the Islamic Centre of Southwest Ontario (ICSO), which was first registered as a charity in 1995.  The ICSO has Assem Fadel as its president who was also the treasurer in the past.[xvii]
The fact that the MAC/Dr. Haddara would chose to partner in a funding effort for an Islamic Chair of Studies with the ICSO and Assem Fadel (both live in London ON) raised questions, as Mr Fadel was also the head of the charity registered as the World Islamic Call Society of Canada.[xviii] Assem Fadel was president of the organization from its inception until it lost its charitable status.[xix]    The World Islamic Call Society of Canada was completely funded by Libya through President Kaddafi’s “jihad fund” and was disbursing money to a variety of individuals not qualified as recipients. One of those was a jihadist political party that tried to overthrow the government of Trinidad and Tobago (Jamaat al-Muslimeen).   Assem Fadel was the holder of the bank account that transferred the monies in question.  The CRA also noted that for a number of years the majority of the money from the charity was used for administrative expenses including rent of an office in a building owned by Mr. Fadel himself as well as paying for his cell phone etc.[xx]
Dr. Haddara has also been a guest speaker at a number of other organizations which are adherents to the Muslim Brotherhood.  Among many others, he was a guest speaker at the 33rd Annual ISNA convention in Toronto along with his brother Yasser Haddara. [xxi]  Other speakers at the same convention were Dr. Rida Beshir who was listed by the Muslim Brotherhood in 1992 as being on its board of directors (Shura Council) as well as begin the “Masul” of the Educational Committee.[xxii]  Another co-speaker was Katherine Bullock, later identified as a spokesperson for the ISNA. [xxiii]
Dr. Haddara was also on the board of directors for IRFAN – Canada (International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy Canada).  He served on the board in 2000 and again in 2002.[xxiv]  IRFAN lost it charitable status for "deceptive fundraising" (according to the CRA) which was designed to aid HAMAS, another Muslim Brotherhood adherent organization according to its own charter.[xxv]  The CRA estimates that some $15 million of taxpayer supported charitable money was sent to HAMAS form 2005 to 2009 alone.  The CRA also notes that IRFAN was involved in questionable practices related to the Povrel Jerusalem Fund for Human Services (JFHS) back to 2000 and that IRFAN was set up to circumvent the Canadian government’s refusal to grant the JFHS charity status in that same year.[xxvi]
Specifically, CRA noted that:
Our findings for the current audit period have identified that IRFAN-Canada has partnered with organizations that, variously: are run by members of the Hamas government; openly support and provide funding to Hamas; have been raided or listed as unlawful associations in Israel for affiliation to Hamas; or have had their bank accounts seized for connections to Hamas. Our findings (keyed to the numbers found on the chart) indicate that IRFAN-Canada provided approximately $14,629,0002 in resources to these organizations during the current audit period…[xxvii]

While he was no longer on the board of directors, CRA documents show that Dr. Haddara was still a voting member of the organization in 2004[xxviii]  and was involved in the process as CRA was attempting to establish the validity of the organization at the time (i.e. 2004).  A meeting of IRFAN Canada on 09 September 2004 notes Dr. Haddara as being present and a voting member.[xxix]

Assessment of Dr. Haddara

Dr. Wael Haddara has been active in Muslim Brotherhood organizations at least since he entered university, being a member and organizer for the MSA.[xxx]  In 2012 and 2103, he was a key player in the inner circle of the Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt, Dr. Morsi.  He was a part of this inner circle during the election campaign and afterwards in Egypt. The UN noted him as a key advisor and as an alternative representative for the head of the state and the Egyptian Ambassador to the UN.  Al Jazeera has also noted him as a key advisor to the Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt.  He testified before a House of Lords committee in the UK.  He has also served on the board of IRFAN which lost its charitable status for funding HAMAS which is also a Muslim Brotherhood organization[xxxi].  He has a long standing relationship with the Muslim Association of Canada which overtly states that they are inspired by Hassan Banna – the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. 

Dr. Jamal Badawi (also reported as Gamal Badawi)
The most influential individual in the North American Muslim Brotherhood movement may be Dr. Jamal Badawi.  In terms of the length of time serving the movement and his depth of experience across multiple adherent organizations, his impact is hard to underestimate.  He has been a lifelong adherent to the Muslim Brotherhood cause and a seemingly tireless organizer.  Hassan Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, is one of his key inspirations.[xxxii]
Dr. Badawi was identified in two significant Muslim Brotherhood documents as being a key leader in the North American operations as far back as the 1990s.   In a 1992 document, Dr. Badawi is listed as being on the “board of directors” of the Muslim Brotherhood of North America.[xxxiii]  The listing for him at that time shows his phone number as being 902-445-2494 and his fax as being the same number.  That same phone is still listed as belonging to Gamal Badawi (902) 445-2494 of Halifax NS B3M2P6.[xxxiv]  In a 1991 document, Dr. Badawi was identified as an individual of key importance who is at the core of the Muslim Brotherhoods main focus of organizational work.[xxxv] 
In this 1991 document, Dr. Badawi is specifically noted in the context of:
It is good fortune that there are brothers among us who have this "trend", mentality or inclination to build the organizations….  This is followed by the statement:  We want to establish the “Group of organizations", as without it we will not able to put our feet on the true path.”[xxxvi]
In his own words in 2004, Dr. Badawi describes his views of Hassan Banna.[xxxvii]  He was being interviewed by EMEL magazine while on Mt. Nour (Jabal al-Nour) near Mecca in Saudi Arabia.  The Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) is said to have spent a considerable amount of time on this mountain, meditating in a small cave.  While there, he was asked: “What book or person has been most influential to your life?” He responded by saying:
I have read many books, but Hasan Al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, has been most inspirational. In his short life he visited over three thousand villages in Egypt, preaching Islam in a comprehensive yet moderate way, thus re-igniting the spiritual passion in people’s heart. Since his assassination in 1949, at the age of forty-three, his ideas have been widely adopted beyond the boundaries of his homeland by millions. More than any other individual, he has epitomised twentieth century Islamic thought and ideology.
According to his own website, Dr. Badawi has, or has had leadership roles in a number of Muslim Brotherhood adherent groups.[xxxviii]  An extract from his biography reads:
Dr. Jamal Badawi is an Egyptian born Muslim Canadian. He is a former professor who taught at a number of schools including the Sobey School of Business, Saint Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he taught in the Departments of Religious Studies and Management. He is a well-known author, activist, preacher and speaker on Islam. Dr. Badawi completed his undergraduate studies in Cairo, Egypt and his Masters and Ph.D. degrees at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.
Dr. Badawi is the author of many books and articles on Islam. In addition, he researched, designed and presented a 352 segment television series on Islam, which was shown in many local TV stations in Canada, the US and as well as other countries all over the world.
Dr. Badawi also actively participates in lectures, seminars and interfaith dialogues in North America. He was invited as a guest speaker in various functions throughout the world. Additionally, he is active in several Islamic organizations, including Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). He is the founder/chairman of the Islamic Information Foundation, which is a non-profit foundation seeking to promote a better understanding of Islam and the Muslims.
Currently, he is the Vice-Chairman of the Islamic University. Dr. Badawi is the father of 5 and grandfather of 12 children.

Dr. Badawi has also been on the board of directors of CAIR CAN for every year they have had a published list (2000-2012) as well as having been on the board of directors of the Muslim Association of Canada from at least 2002 to 2006.[xxxix]  He is a member of the Islamic Juridical [Fiqh] Council of North America, The European Council of Fatwa and Research and the International Union of Muslim Scholars.[xl] He is a prolific speaker and has given related presentations in at least 38 countries.[xli]  He was also on the Board of Directors of ISNA in 2005.

The phone number given for Dr. Badawi above (902) 445-2494) is also is given for:
a. The Board of Directors for Human Concern International (website viewed on 01 March 2014).[xlii]
b. Mosque and Islamic Center of Hampton Roads Virginia (listed as a trustee)[xliii]
c.  The Institute al Islam (listed as a scholar)[xliv]   and the
d. Islamic Information Foundation – Canada (gives his number as contact point)[xlv]

Dr. Yasser Haddara 

Dr. Yasser (also Yaser and Yasir) Haddara holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University and is presently Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario making $144,782.45 a year according to the Province of Ontario’s salary disclosure website. [xlvi]
Dr. Yasser Haddara is the brother of Dr. Wael Haddara.[xlvii]  As with his brother, he has been reported as a presidential aide to Dr. Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s president of Egypt in 2012 and 2013. Al-Arabriya reported him as:
A presidential aide said Morsi was working at a Republican Guard barracks in a Cairo suburb, near to his office, and had chosen to stay there. Other close advisers were allowed to leave the compound after the 5:30 pm (1500 GMT) deadline expired.

The aide, Yasser Haddara, a communications adviser, said it was unclear whether Morsi was free to return to the palace where he spent the previous night. His message to supporters was to resist the "military coup" peacefully and not use violence against troops, police or other Egyptians.[xlviii]

Dr. Yasser Haddara has also been the Vice President and Chair of the Muslim Association of Canada.  As noted above, the MAC are open adherents of Hassan Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, as they state on their own website:
It is now 75 years since Al-Banna initiated that blessed effort. The efforts of the Muslim Association of Canada are separate from the writings and organization of Al-Banna by time and space. The assertion that much of our philosophy and vision derive from the efforts of Al-Banna should not be taken to mean that we adopt in wholesale fashion all of the ideas developed and put forward by Al-Banna or the Muslim Brotherhood. However, we believe that the efforts of Al-Banna and subsequent generations of the Muslim Brotherhood remain the truest reflection of Islamic practice in the modern era.[xlix]  He was on the board of directors for Islamic Relief USA and Islamic Relief Canada.[l] 
According to Islamic Relief USA, Dr. Yasser Haddara is:
…currently an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at McMaster University in Hamilton in Ontario, Canada. Dr. Haddara has extensive community service experience and has served as a member of the IRUSA board for the last two years. He is a founding member of the Hamilton Dialog Group, which fosters dialog across the lines of religion, culture, ethnicity, and aims to foster a spirit of engagement and conflict transformation. He is also a noted public speaker on such topics as spirituality, intellectual development, social reform, Islamic sciences, and civic engagement. Dr. Haddara was one of the developers and lead trainers for the Student Leadership Training Program that was jointly sponsored by the Muslim American Society and the Muslim Association of Canada. Dr. Haddara has been actively involved in several community organizations including the Islamic Society at Stanford University, the Muslim Community Association of the Bay Area, the Islamic Society of North America (Western Region), the Muslim American Society, and the Muslim Association of Canada. Dr. Haddara joined the IRUSA board in March 2006 and served as the chairman until May 2011.[li] (Emphasis added)
Dr. Yasser Haddara’s activities serve to underline the connections between Muslim Brotherhood based organizations in Canada and the USA.  In the above, it is noted that a student training program was sponsored by the Muslim America Society and the Muslim Association of Canada.
Dr. Yasser Haddara has also been active with a number of youth organizations in both Canada and the USA, as noted by the Muslim American Society (2004):
Dr. Yaser Haddara is currently the Chair of the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC)/Muslim American Society (MAS) Youth Division. He has been involved with a number of efforts aimed at young Muslims including Muslim Youth Camp (MYC) in California and American Muslims Intent on Learning and Activism (AMILA). Yaser holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University and is presently Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.[lii]
Dr. Haddara was also involved with protests suggesting that Canada should withdraw its ambassador from Egypt after Dr. Morsi was forcibly removed from office by street riots and the military.
One of the protest organizers, Yaser Haddara, called on the Canadian government to remove its ambassador to the North African country in order to put pressure on the Egyptian leaders.[liii]
While he is not linked to any wrongdoing, Dr.  Yasser Haddara is also a board Member of Hamilton’s Settlement and Integration Services Organization (SISO) an immigration “services”, a group that was defunded by the federal government and investigated by the RCMP.  As reported in the Hamilton Spectator:  
“SISO has been in turmoil since losing millions in government funding over concerns of financial irregularities. Its former executive director was charged with uttering death threats against staff and there is an ongoing investigation by Hamilton police and the RCMP into allegations of fraud against the government.” [liv]
Dr. Yasser Haddara is also active in the “Cordoba House” which is a project of the Muslim Association of Canada (Hamilton Chapter).[lv]  This project appears to be consistent with the stated aim of building Islamic Centres close to the universities as noted by the 1991 An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group In North America.
In brief we say: we would like for the Islamic center to become "The House of Dawa'" and "the general center" in deeds first before name. As much as we own and direct these centers at the continent level, we can say we are marching successfully towards the settlement of Dawa' in this country.
Meaning that the "center's" role should be the same as the "mosque's" role during the time of God's prophet, God's prayers and peace be upon him, when he marched to "settle" the Dawa' in its first generation in Madina.  From the mosque, he drew the Islamic life and provided to the world the most magnificent and fabulous civilization humanity knew.
This mandates that, eventually, the region, the branch and the Usra turn into "operations rooms" for planning, direction, monitoring and leadership for the Islamic center in order to be a role model to be followed.

Dr. Ingrid Mattson 

Dr. Mattson was born in Canada, where she studied Philosophy and Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo, Ontario (B.A. ‘87).[lvi]  She holds a PhD from the University of Chicago.[lvii]  She worked in Pakistan as part of a Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) funded medical project in the late 1980s.
Dr. Mattson held the position of Vice President for two terms at the ISNA (North America) from 2001 to 2006.  She then became President of the ISNA (North America), a position she held until 2010.
ISNA (Canada) lost charity status for one if its organizations (ISNA Development Foundation) for funding terrorism in the Kashmir/Pakistan region.[lviii]  The loss of the charitable status occurred in 2013, but the investigation covers the time period of which Dr. Mattson was active on the board of ISNA as vice chair and President.[lix]  This puts the contention that Huron College’s chair in Islamic Studies has no connection to terrorism into some doubt.
Despite statements by the ISNA (North America) that it has no connections to ISNA-Canada, the reality is that the two bodies have been significantly interconnected. Two board members of ISNA (Canada) were on the board of ISNA (USA) in 2013 – the year the charity lost its charity status in Canada.  Mohamed Bekkari was on the ISNA board of directors in Canada and was the President of the Charity in Canada when it lost its statue.  At the same time he was listed at the ISNA (North America) Majlis Ash-Shura as being Vice Chairman for Canada.[lx] Dr. Bekkari was also listed in the USA as being on the Executive Council of the ISNA (North America) and was the Vice President for Canada. Khalid Tarabain, another Canadian from ISNA Canada,[lxi] was also listed on the ISNA (North America) website as being on the Board of Directors (Majlis Ash-Shura) and was noted there as being the “Chairman, Canadian Islamic Trust.” Dr. Syed Imtiaz Ahmad stated to the CRA that the ISNA Development Fund (IDF) had been modelled after the IDF-USA with the IDF acting as a fund raising arm of the ISNA.  This was confirmed in two separate interviews in November 2011 and 06 March 2012. [lxii]  Dr. Ahmad was a founding director of the IDF and was a former president of the ISNA-Canada.
Dr. Mattson is also a trustee[lxiii] of the North America Islamic Trust (NAIT).   This organization is an unindicted co-conspirator in HLF case.  The multiple convictions in that case related to the HLF and IAP involvement in terrorism funding.
The International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) was founded in 1981.  One of the co-founders of the IIIT was Anwar Ibrahim of Malaysia, where he remains a director.  Anwar Ibrahim was also a trustee of WAMY (1970s and 1980s).  The office of WAMY in Canada lost its charitable status for funding organizations said by FINTRAC[lxiv] and UN to be terrorist in orientation (BIF-Canada and BIF-USA).[lxv]
Dr. Mattson is currently the Chair of Islamic Studies[lxvi] at Huron College (University of Western Ontario), which has received funding from the MAC and IIIT.  Professors at the college were concerned about the close relationship between the Islamic Centre of Southwestern Ontario and the MAC.[lxvii]  The current treasure of the ICSO is Mr. Fadel which is also based in London Ontario.[lxviii]  Mr. Fadel was the President of the World Islamic Call Society when it lost is charitable status.  The CRA investigation focused on monies received from Libyan President Kaddafi and his “Jihad Fund” as well as monies transferred to a terrorist group which attempted to overthrow the government of Trinidad and Tobago.[lxix]   The MAC, at the time of the announcement of the funding, was headed by Dr. Wael Haddara who went on shortly thereafter to be a senior electoral and presidential advisor to the Muslim Brotherhood’s president of Egypt, Dr. Morsi. [lxx]
Dr. Mattson is on the Council of Advisors for the IIIT[lxxi] which is one of the co-funders for the Islamic Chair at Huron College. Questions were raised about whether the source of the funding would have any influence on the choice of the chair.[lxxii]  Given the IIIT was a funder, it does seem unusual that Dr. Mattson was also on the board of advisors for IIIT and received the position which was funded by her organization.
Dr. Trish Fulton, acting principal of Huron College at the University of Western Ontario at the time of the funding decision, stated that executive board members had been tasked with due diligence and that the values of the MAC and IIIT were “compatible with [Huron’s] values,” [lxxiii] The Huron College press release stated that Dr. Mattson had “Dr. Mattson's impeccable credentials.”[lxxiv]   However, Dr. Fulton also stated that:
 We don’t probe too deeply into values held by donors.[lxxv]
One of those doing the due diligence was Huron University College Executive Board member Faisal Joseph. Mr. Joseph is believed to have attended a 2008 World Islamic Call Society (WICS) meeting.[lxxvi] As noted above, the WICS chapter in Canada was completely funded by Colonel Gaddafi’s Jihad Fund and the Canada Revenue Agency revoked the charitable status of the organization in 2011.[lxxvii] 
Dr. Mattson is a prolific speaker who has appeared regularly at a number of high profile events.  These include, among many others:
a. As part of Islam Awareness Week (March 12 - March 16, 2007), The Harvard Islamic Society Presents: "A Discussion with Dr. Ingrid Mattson" Join us for a discussion with the President of the largest Muslim organization in North America (the Islamic Society of North America).[lxxviii]
b. Featured speaker at the ISNA Canada upcoming (May 2014) convention in Mississauga.[lxxix]

Dr. Sheema Khan (also reported as Seema Khan)
Among her may other undertakings, Dr. Sheema Khan was the founding director of CAIR Montreal, CAIR Ottawa and CAIR CAN. (See the two other sections in this paper on CAIR CAN/NCCM for details).

In addition to founding CAIR CA, Dr. Khan has been involved in a leadership capacity of a number of other organizations including, but not limited to:[lxxx]

SEEMA KHAN, director, INDIAN MUSLIM RELIEF COMMITTEE OF ISNA CANADA (Canada, 1 Aug 1997- )
SEEMA KHAN, director, CANADIAN MUSLIM COUNCIL (CMC) (Canada, 11 Dec 1997- )
SEEMA KHAN, director, ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA (ISNA) (Canada, 13 Sep 1982- )
SEEMA KHAN, director, THE CANADIAN ISLAMIC TRUST FOUNDATION (Canada, 5 Jul 1983- )
SEEMA KHAN, director, ISLAMIC SCHOOLS ASSOCIATION OF CANADA (ISAC) (Canada, 26 Sep 1983- )
SEEMA KHAN, director, ISNA-IDB EDUCATION TRUST (Canada, 19 Sep 2001- )
SEEMA KHAN, director, ISNA HUMAN DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE (Canada)

The ISNA (Canada) currently lists her as being on their staff with the following details:

Seema Khan, Director of Operations, Phone 905 403 8406 (Ex 222).  She has the following email addresses listed as well: operations@isnacanada.com, facebook@isnacanada.com , volunteer@isnacanada.com , matrimonial@isnacanada.com.[lxxxi]

It should be noted that the ISNA has multiple charities listed at this same address.[lxxxii]  One of them, the ISNA DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION had its charitable status revoked for cause in September of 2013.  The Canada Revenue Agency stated that the ISNA Development Foundation had failed to comply with a number of sections of the charities act and had been funding terrorism.[lxxxiii] 

This revocation occurred at a time when Dr. Khan was the Director of Operations for ISNA Canada. Dr. Khan had been on the board of directors of the ISNA Development Foundation for the in 2 of the last 3 years (2010 and 2011) before this charity lost its status for funding terrorism.[lxxxiv]

Among many other actives, Dr. Khan was also the Chair of the 38th Annual ISNA Canada Convention, held on the Victoria Day weekend in Mississauga, Ont., May 18-20, 2012.  This event was noted by the ISNA (USA) magazine Islamic Horizons on page 13 of their July August Issue of 2012.[lxxxv]     

Dr. Khan also publishes articles on a regular basis such as ISNA Canada – the Journey Continues! which was published on 07 March 2014 on the website “Lanterns.”[lxxxvi]

In May 2006, Dr. Khan gave a presentation to the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) on the experiences of Muslim in Canada after the 911 attacks.   This presentation was noted by CAIR CAN in their website.[lxxxvii] A full copy of Dr. Khan’s speech is also available online.[lxxxviii]  

Dr. Mohammed Bekkari 

Dr. Bekkari has played a major role in a number of Muslim Brotherhood adherent organizations for an extended period of time.  Most recently, he came to attention as being the President of an ISNA charitable organization that lost its charitable status (for cause) as a resulting of using the charities money to fund a terrorist organization.  Dr. Bekkari is also involved in a lawsuit with a former ISNA member (Mohammad Ashraf) over allegations of the mismanagement of funds.  The problems were noted in the press when the Toronto Star article which noted that a “Muslim charity squandered money for poor” [lxxxix] as well as another article Star Investigation: Federal audit raises concern that Canadian charity funded terror.[xc]

According to the ISNA website[xci]:
Dr. Mohamed Bekkari was born in Morocco in 1947 and currently resides in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He is a registered child clinical and school psychologist employed by Timiskaming Child and Family Services. Dr. Bekkari has dedicated his life to education and the positive growth of the North American Muslim community, serving for more than thirty years on various ISNA committees as well as ISNA Vice President-Canada, MSA boards, and as the current President of ISNA Canada. Dr. Bekkari is involved not only at the national level but is also actively involved in his local community, Ottawa, the National Capital of Canada.

Dr. Bekkari also is identified as being in a number of leadership positions in Canada. This list includes (but is not limited to)

DR. MOHAMED BEKKARI, director, ISNA-IDB EDUCATION TRUST (Canada, 19 Sep 2001- )
MOHAMED BEKKARI, director, CANADIAN MUSLIM COUNCIL (CMC) (Canada, 11 Dec 1997- )
MOHAMED BEKKARI, director, ISNA HUMAN DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTE (Canada)
MOHAMED BEKKARI, director, CANADIAN ISLAMIC TRUST FOUNDATION (Canada, 5 Jul 1983-)
MOHAMED BEKKARI, director, INDIAN MUSLIM RELIEF COMMITTEE OF ISNA CANADA (Canada, 1 Aug 1997- )
MOHAMED BEKKARI, director, ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA (ISNA) (Canada, 13 Sep 1982- )
MOHAMED BEKKARI, director, ISLAMIC SCHOOLS ASSOCIATION OF CANADA (ISAC) (Canada, 26 Sep 1983- )

The ISNA has a number of charities listed as operating out of their headquarters address. One of them, the ISNA Development Foundation had its charitable status revoked for cause in September of 2013.  The Canada Revenue Agency stated that the ISNA Development Foundation (incorporated 2001-12-24)[xcii] had failed to comply with a number of sections of the charities act and had been funding terrorism.[xciii] 
Dr. Bekkari has a long history with this organization.  The most recent roles over the last six years have been President of the Board of Directors (2010, 2011 and 2012) and he was listed as the Vice Chair of the organization from 2008 to 2010.[xciv]
Despite claims that the ISNA (Canada) and ISNA (USA) are separate organizations and have no links to each other, two board members of  ISNA (Canada) were on the board of ISNA (USA) in 2013 – the year the charity lost its charity status in Canada.  Mohamed Bekkari was on the ISNA board of directors in Canada and was the President of the charity in Canada when it lost its statue.  At the same time he was listed at the ISNA (USA) Majlis Ash-Shura as being Vice Chairman for Canada.[xcv] Dr. Bekkari was also listed in the USA as being on the Executive Council of the ISNA (USA) and was the Vice President for Canada.
Khalid Tarabain, another Canadian from ISNA Canada[xcvi], was also listed on the ISNA (USA) website as being on the Board of Directors (Majlis Ash-Shura) and was noted there as being the “Chairman, Canadian Islamic Trust.”
The claims that the ISNA in Canada and the USA are not connected are clearly false, based on this evidence alone.  Additionally, a number of other Canadians have served in important positions in both organizations.  Dr. Ingrid Mattson, shows in ISNA (USA) as being on their Executive Council in 2013[xcvii] and was formerly a president of ISNA (North America).
When the ISNA(Canada) invited Qasi Hussain Ahmand, the head of Jamaat-e-Islami (banned from entering 24 European countries and others), the first contact name given for the conference was listed as Dr. Mohammed Bekkari (dmbekkari@yahoo.com).  The phone number given was for the ISNA HQ and the email point of contact was:  convention@isnacanada.com .  

Dr. Rida Beshir

Dr. Rida Beshir (also Bashir) was listed in a 1992 directory of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America as being as being on its board of directors (Shura Council) as well as begin the “Masul” (Leader) of the Educational Committee for the same organization.[xcviii]  Like many other senior figures in the Muslim Brotherhood movement, he is educated (Dr., engineer), urbane and sophisticated. At the time the 1992 directory was prepared, he was listed as having a phone number in the 613 calling code area which equates to Ottawa/Kingston region of Canada.[xcix] He still lives in the Ottawa area.  His own biography describes him as being a member of a variety of Muslim Brotherhood adherent organizations such as the Muslim Students Association, the Islamic Society of North America, the Islamic Circle of North America and the Muslim American Society.  He also states that he has been a speaker at a number of adherent organizations (ISNA, ICNA, MSA, MAC, and MAS) as well as being a founding director of the often troubled Ottawa based Human Concern International.[c]
He has also been on the board of directors of the Muslim Association of Canada.[ci]
On his own website[cii] he notes the following:
He has over 35 years of experience in Da’wa work in North America.
He has held various positions with the Muslim Student’s Association (MSA), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and Muslim American Society (MAS) on both national and local levels.
He led the training and development department of the Muslim American Society (MAS) for 6 years and served as a member in the department for over two decades. Currently he is still advising the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) and MAS departments on Tarbiyah matters. 
He is a regular speaker at ISNA, ICNA, MSA, MAC, and MAS conventions.
He is one of the founders of Human Concern International (HCI) and served as their Vice President for over a decade.
He is the recipient of the Ottawa Muslim Association and Ottawa Muslim Community Circle appreciation awards in 1993 and 1999 for his volunteer Islamic work in the National Capital region.
He is a member of the advisory board of SIFCA “Shura of Islamic Family Counselors of America”
He is actively developing and delivering training programs to various Muslim communities all over the world.
Dr. Bashir’s wife, (Dr. Ekram Beshir) also notes in their website that she is a medical doctor by profession, with a background in child psychology.  She is the founder of both the Abraar full time Islamic school[ciii] and the Rahma School,[civ] a weekend Arabic and Islamic school, in Ottawa, Canada.[cv]
The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) homepage has an “our schools” button.[cvi] When you click on this button, the MAC website directs you to a list of schools in Canada run through the MAC.[cvii]
This directs you to a page containing a list of 20 of the MAC schools in Canada.  The page makes the following statement concerning control of the schools:
MAC envisions the school as a learning institution that supports the integrated and balanced development of the individual. MAC operates full-time schools, weekend schools, Quran schools and other programs that provide high quality education opportunities to everyone.
One of those schools is the Abraar School of Canada[cviii] located in Ottawa. This is the school that Dr. Ekram Beshir claims to have founded. 
The value systems of the MAC are, at best, questionable.  As noted elsewhere in this report, the website of the MAC has stated that it believes in the teachings of Hassan al- Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.  On their own Q&A section on their website[cix] the MAC asks “What is the relationship between MAC and the Muslim Brotherhood?” The response to the questions starts out by saying it is an independent organization, but it follows with:
The Muslim Brotherhood is the oldest of the revivalist Islamic movement and was founded in 1928 by Hasan Al-Banna.

Much of the philosophy and vision of the Muslim Association of Canada derives from the heritage of the Muslim Brotherhood. Our commitment to the model of individual self-development expressed in communal organization is based largely on the vision of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hasan Al-Banna. While the Muslim Association of Canada does not represent the Muslim Brotherhood, it is important to describe here in some detail what we believe are the areas of shared heritage.

We believe that Hasan Al-Banna attempted to revive, among Muslims, the understanding of Islam in a moderate comprehensive manner. In other words, he tried to revive Islam in a manner that would best approximate what Islam would have looked like had the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, lived and preached Islam in our own time. Furthermore, Al-Banna succeeded in putting together a dynamic organizational structure that brought that understanding to life. Islam, after the efforts of Al-Banna and his brothers, came out of the domain of personal worship and into the arena of public policy. Muslims emerged from a mindset characterized by feelings of inferiority and uncertainty to one of clarity and confidence.

It is now 75 years since Al-Banna initiated that blessed effort. The efforts of the Muslim Association of Canada are separate from the writings and organization of Al-Banna by time and space. The assertion that much of our philosophy and vision derive from the efforts of Al-Banna should not be taken to mean that we adopt in wholesale fashion all of the ideas developed and put forward by Al-Banna or the Muslim Brotherhood. However, we believe that the efforts of Al-Banna and subsequent generations of the Muslim Brotherhood remain the truest reflection of Islamic practice in the modern era.[cx]

Given that the aim of Hassan Banna was to create a state where his virulent form of political Islam would run the state, these value statements are at best, questionable in a Canadian context.

Dr. El-Tantawy Attia

Dr. Attia[cxi] is the executive director of the Masjid Toronto[cxii] which is identified as being part of the Muslim Association of Canada. [cxiii]  The Masjid and the Toronto chapter office of MAC are in the same building. 

Dr. Attia made his views clear with respect to the Masjid when he stated:
“Here, we follow the teachings of the Muslim Brotherhood.”[cxiv]
According to a CAIR CAN press release of 2005, Dr. Attia has been living in Canada since approximately 1971.[cxv]  Dr. Attia, originally from Egypt, has been at the Masjid since its formation. [cxvi]
Dr. Attia also believes it is important for Muslims to be involved in student politics.[cxvii]
Dr. Attia has also been involved in a number of other projects such as being a main point of contact for a 2002 fund raising event to support CAIR CAN operations.  His daughter, Sarah Attia, was also listed as a point of contact for the CAIR CAN fundraiser on the same announcement.  She was the Vice President of the Muslim Student Association at that time as well as having been a speaker at the May 18-19, 2002 - 28th Annual ISNA Canada Convention in Toronto.[cxviii] 
Dr. Attia was also on the board of directors for the Muslim World League (Canada)[cxix] along with Hassan Hachimi (among others).  Mr. Hachimi, a Toronto based architect,[cxx] is currently the head of the political bureau of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood[cxxi], according to a statement by the Muslim Brotherhood.[cxxii]



Sarah Attia 

Sarah Attia is the daughter of Dr. El-Tantawy Attia. 
(A photo is of Khaled Al-Qazza is available in the photo section.  He is the husband of Sarah Attia standing in front of the official aircraft of the President of Egypt, an Airbus A-340 long haul jet) [cxxiii]
She is the former Vice President of the Muslim Students Association and was a speaker at May 18-19, 2002 - 28th Annual Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) Canada Convention in Toronto.  She is a graduate of the Faculty of Engineering, University of Toronto, with a master’s degree in chemical engineering.[cxxiv]  She was heavily involved in the Muslim Students Association at both the undergraduate and graduate level.  According to the Muslim Students Association of Canada and the USA, she was:
Sarah Attia
Vice President Canada
vpcanada@msa-natl.org

Sarah Attia is currently working on her M.S. degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Toronto. She has just completed her B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering in May 2002, also from the University of Toronto. She has been a part of MSA National for over a year, where she began serving as the East Zone Representative of Canada. She later accepted the position of Vice President of Canada in November 2001. Prior to working with MSA National, Ms. Attia was involved with her local MSA for three years, where she served as the Sisters Vice President from 2000-20001 and the Sisters Events Coordinator from 1999-2000. She is also involved with the youth in her local community, as she presently works with the MAC Toronto Youth Group.[cxxv]

Sarah Attia is the wife of the Khaled Al-Qazzaz, who according to his own Twitter account, was working in Egypt as “Secretary on Foreign Relations, Office of the President Politics: Freedom & Justice Party.”  The president in question was Dr. Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt in 2012 and 2013.  The Freedom and Justice Party is the political wing of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  Mr. Qazzaz is currently being held in jail in Egypt on unspecified charges.  His jailing appears to be part of a sweep of Muslim Brotherhood officials.  While in Canada as a student (2000-2005) he joined the University of Toronto Muslim Students Association and was the president of the club in 2003/04.[cxxvi]
Among those publicly calling for his release is Dr. Tariq Ramadan,[cxxvii]  a close relative of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan Banna.
Sarah Attia and Mr. Qazzaz were married in 2005 and left Canada to live in Egypt.[cxxviii]  In 2011, Sarah Attia took her children aged ages 1, 2½ and 5 to see the protests at Tahir Square which would eventually result in the overthrow of President Mubarak.  She has written about the experience and wrote two similar journalistic pieces, one for a blog[cxxix] and the other for newspaper.[cxxx]  Both articles had the title “I Took My Kids to Tahir Square
In the article she notes that:
At that moment, I decided that I wanted to continue to raise my children in Egypt if these were the men and women that they would grow to be.
Sarah Attia is currently (May 2014) part of a campaign to pressure the Government of Canada to get her husband released from jail in Egypt.[cxxxi]

Hassan Hachimi

Mr. Hachimi, a Toronto based architect,[cxxxii] is currently the head of the political bureau of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood[cxxxiii], according to a statement by the Muslim Brotherhood.[cxxxiv]  This is especially significant given the ongoing civil war in Syria and that he is the first person to hold this position since the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood was banned by the Syrian government and virtually wiped out in the early 1980s.  He is also described as being a secretariat member of the Syrian National Council since at least 2011 and has attended meetings in that capacity.[cxxxv]
Here in Canada, he was on the board of directors of the Muslim Association of Canada[cxxxvi] and also on the board of directors for the Muslim World League (Canada).[cxxxvii]
According to the press release of the Muslim Brotherhood:

Hassan Hachimi, 50, a Toronto architect, fled in 1979 his hometown of Aleppo to Saudi Arabia after his father was persecuted for involvement in the Muslim Brotherhood. In 1996 he arrived in Canada and soon has become increasingly involved in the political activity of the Syrian opposition in exile. In April 2006 he attended in Montreal a conference of the Syrian opposition in exile which called for democratic reforms. Three years later Hachimi joined the committee of “Damascus Declaration” in Canada (Syrian opposition bloc founded in 2005) and was appointed to its Vice President and the coordinator of its activities in Ontario. The committee, first convened in Canada on August 29, 2009, expressed in an official statement its support of democratic political change in Syria. Toronto Star, referring to Hachimi as the “Canadian representative of the Syrian National Council”, reported (February 11, 2012) that Hachimi met Foreign Minister John Baird twice to discuss the crisis in Syria. Hachimi was first and officially mentioned as the chief of the political bureau of the Muslim Brotherhood on April 15, 2013. He replaced in this position Ali Al-Bayanouni, the former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. In recent article (June 8, 2013) for the official bulletin of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hachimi expressed his disappointment of the helplessness of the international community towards the ongoing crisis in Syria. “The international policy and its diplomatic and intelligence tools failed to see all this [mass killing of civilians], yet it didn’t stop talking on minorities and terrorism,” wrote Hachimi.[cxxxix]

Abdalla Idris (also Abdalla Idris Ali)
According to his biography on his own website, Mr. Idris has a long association with the ISNA, a Muslim Brotherhood adherent organization.  He is shown as:
Dr. Abdalla Idris Ali earned his distinction[cxl] in International Relations from the University of Toronto. He is now the Deputy Secretary General of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) Canada.
Ali began his work in education in Canada as a teacher of Arabic and Islamic studies at the Islamic Centre of Toronto (Jami Mosque) and held other responsibilities including Director of Education at the Centre. Later he served as the Imam and Director of the Islamic Center of Toronto and continues to be an Imam at large in the community. From 1992 to 1997 he served as President of ISNA. Dr. Ali is currently the Majlis Ash-Shura Chair of the Islamic Media Foundation and sits on the Board of Advisors of many Islamic organizations.[cxli]
He was listed as the Secretary General of the ISNA when they lost their charity status for funding terrorism through the ISNA Development Fund.
Secretary General, Abdalla Idris, Ali Ext: 205, sg@isnacanada.com[cxlii]
Idris also has a series of other affiliations, as noted in his biography for a recent conference:
Sheikh Abdalla Idris Ali is a well-known American Muslim public speaker, successful fund-raiser and served as ISNA's President from 1992-1997. Currently, he serves as the Secretary General of Islamic Society of North America (Canada). Additionally, Sheikh Abdalla co-organized the Canadian Islamic Banking Conferences for 1996 and 1997. He also serves as a member on the Board of Trustees for the Islamic Teaching Center (ITC) and North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). (Emphasis added)
He is also on the Board of Advisors of the American Muslim Council (AMC) and past-Board member of the Council of Islamic Schools in North America. As an ISNA School principal, he developed and implemented Islamic and Arabic Studies curricula for elementary and junior high students. He has written various articles in Islamic Horizons and is a member of the ATP Editorial Board. His expertise is in the area of Islamic education in North America.[cxliii]
The North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) is an unindicated co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation criminal trial in the USA which say multiple criminal convictions related to the funding of terrorism.

Khadija Haffajee 

A biography of Khadija Haffajee from the Muslim Observer notes:
Khadija Haffajee, Majlis Member

Khadija Haffajee is a retired schoolteacher who is originally from South Africa. In the past, she has served as chairperson for the ISNA Women’s Committee and Canadian Zonal Representative for the MSA Women’s Committee. She has been a speaker at ISNA Conferences on different occasions and acts as an advisor and counselor for Islamic youth camps.

In 1996, she was elected Assistant Secretary General of the International Muslim Women’s Union and was a member of the 1996 Steering Committee for Christian-Muslim NGO Dialogue on Development. She has received recognition for her work with Afghan refugees in Peshawar, Pakistan in 1987 and was a member of the Mayor’s Advisory Council on Religious Affairs in 1981. She was also the president of the Ottawa Muslim Women Auxiliary.[cxliv]

Ms. Haffajee has also been on the board of directors of CAIR-CAN from its founding until the name change in 2013.  She appears to be on the board of the newly formed National Council of Canadian Muslims – the new name for CAIR-CAN.  She is of the few to have been there every year along with other stalwarts such as Dr. Wael Haddara (left at the end of 2012) and Dr. Jamal Badwi (still on the board).
Ms. Haffajee was also on the Editorial Board of the ISNA (North America) magazine Islamic Horizons when it published a cover article on Hassan Banna identifying him as a Martyr of our Times. The article itself was titled Remembering a True Guide – A Martyr of Dawa who offered the eternal message.[cxlv]
She was also on the board of directors of the ISNA as well, serving in at least 2000 and 2005.[cxlvi]

Assem Fadel

Mr. Fadel was the Chair/President of the World Islamic Call Society (Canada) from its formation until the time it lost is charity status for funding terrorism.  CRA also states that there were dubious practices (private benefits to a director) where funds were used to benefit Mr. Fadel personally.  At one point, the Canadian Chapter of the WICS handled money going from Libya to Jamaat al-Muslimeen which, among other things, used the money to try and over throw the government of Trinidad and Tobago.[cxlvii] 
Also according to the CRA statement, Mr. Fadel was the primary director and only real person operating the charity and the money from Libya would be funnelled through his own bank account.
The WICS charity also moved money from Libya through Canada and onto the US as a means of avoiding sanctions there, according to the CRA.
According to the CRA when it revoked the charity status of WICS:[cxlviii]
“The Society acts at the direction of, and receives all of its funding from, the Libyan-based World Islamic Call Society (WICS-Libya), an organization founded by Muammar al-Qadaffi (Gadhafi) in 1972 whose objects and activities are not confined to the advancement of religion as that term is understood under Canadian law.”
According to various sources, WICS-Libya is operated under the control of the Government of Libya and funded by allocations made by Muammar al-Qadaffi. (Gadhafi) from “the Jihad Fund”. (FN3) An affidavit and the Plea Agreement filed in the successful U.S. conviction of Abdurahman Muhammad Alamoudi in 2004 on charges of wilfully attempting to violate U.S. economic sanctions against Libya imposed because of Libya’s involvement in terrorist bombings and the downing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, attest to the use of the WICS-Libya’s network to move funds on behalf of the Libyan government in violation of the sanctions against Libya.” (FN4)
“The audit found that the majority of 2006, 2007, and 2008 expenditures made by the Society were for office rent, administrative expenses, and telephone expenses. The rent is paid to its Chairman/President Assem Fadel, and has been since June 2001 when it appears the office was moved to 106 Kent Street, London, a property which Mr. Fadel owns. Mr. Fadel also has a cellular phone paid for by the Society, in addition to a telephone line installed at the Kent Street property. These rent and phone expenses alone represent 52%, 70%, and 77% of the total expenses incurred by the Society for the years 2006, 2007, and 2008 respectively.  The financial statements filed with the Society’s 2009 information returns indicate that all of its expenditures are administrative in nature, and
that 78% of these expenditures were for telephone and office rental. We note, in particular, that the $9701 the Society has reported in section D4 of the return as the amount it has spent on charitable programs comprises the amounts paid for rent and telephone expenses.”
Mr. Fadel is also the current treasurer of the Islamic Centre for Southwestern Ontario (ICSO) which is also based in London Ontario.[cxlix]  ICSO is also reported as a financial supporter of the Huron College’s (University of Western Ontario) new chair in Islamic studies.[cl] In his capacity as treasure for the ICSO, he gives his email contact as wics@golden.net, an apparent reference to the World Islamic Call Society.[cli]
Mr. Fadel is also a representative of the International Development and Relief Foundation where he gives his name and contact points as: Assem Fadel, London, ON, wics@golden.net, (519-438-3218)[clii]
The ICSO is also the co-funder for the new chair in Islamic Studies at Huron College (University of Western Ontario) along with the Muslim Association of Canada.  Dr. Wael Haddara of the MAC, speaking on behalf of the organization at the time (2011) stated:
“MAC welcomes Huron’s decision to create a chair in Islamic Studies,” said Wael Haddara, President of the Muslim Association of Canada. “And, we couldn’t be happier with their choice of Dr. Ingrid Mattson as the inaugural chair. Her academic and professional record is second-to-none and we are confident her expertise and teaching ability will raise the level of discussion about Islamic religion and culture in this country.”[cliii]
Dr. Haddara is a major figure in Muslim Brotherhood circles, including being an electoral and senior political advisor in the inner circle of the Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President, Dr. Morsi.   Dr. Mattson is a major figure in the ISNA, which had the status of one of its charities revoked for funding terrorism. (ISNA – Development Fund)
Mr. Fadel also appears to be interested in Louis Farrakhan of the American based Nation of Islam, having travelled to Chicago in 2000 to attend an Islam Saviour's Day event where Farrakhan was a major speaker.  The presence of Mr. Fadel at the conference was noted in the press which stated:
Assem Fadel, a Muslim from Canada who is not a member of the Nation of Islam, applauded the distinction and said Farrakhan's speech provided him with "proof" that a Muslim unification was possible among U.S. groups.[cliv]
The presence of Mr. Fadel at a Nation of Islam event may appear a bit unusual given that the NOI recognizes its founder Master Wallace Fard Muhammad as a divine being and that his follower Elijah Muhammad was revered as a prophet.  Both of these concepts would be abhorrent to most Muslims, but both Mr. Farrakhan and Mr. Fadel have connections (funding and organizational) to Libya and to President Momar Gaddafi.  Mr. Farrakhan has also stated in the past that he is looking at unification of his movement with other Islamic movements.[clv]

Abdallah Assafiri

A 1992 Directory of the Muslim Brotherhood of North America listed an A. Assafiri as the Masul for the East  of Canada and gave his phone number as: H: (819) 372-3321.[clvi]  To have been listed as a “Masul” or leader in 1992, Mr. Assafiri must have been involved with the organization prior to 1992 as the position of Masul suggests some trust and responsibility within the organisation.
Mr. Assafiri is a member of the Centre culturel islamique de Québec where he is described as being the “directeur de la formation et de l'animation religieuse”[clvii]  He stated that the organization was formed as a non-profit organization in 1985 during his testimony to the Quebec Provincial Legislature. [clviii]
He has been a speaker at events such as the ISNA 2002 annual conference where he spoke on the issue of “Being a Muslim in Canada.”[clix]
He has also been a commentator on a number of social issue in Quebec including issues related to convers and marriage[clx] and the wearing of the hijab in sports.
Mr. Assafiri is also a member of the “Coalition Québec-Palestine.”  In a newspaper article he is described as being “un Canadien d’origine libanaise, membre de la Coalition.”  (A Canadian of Lebanese origin, member of the Coalition.) [clxi]
Mr. Assafiri also appears to be/was the named administrative contract for the Government of Quebec’s web domain gouv.qc.ca, according to the Who IS registry of domain name sites.

Ayman Sharawi

Ayman Sharawi is formerly of Toronto and was an individual who attended the (in)famous 1993 Philadelphia meeting.  He is listed in the official transcripts of the FBI recording of the meeting as AY.  He is believed to be married to the sister of the Palestinian wife of Ahmed Said Khadr, an al Qaeda financial and operational figure.  Mr. Khadr had also been living in Toronto on-and-off until he died in a shootout with Pakistani authorities in October of 2003.[clxiii]  Sharawi was using the Toronto area phone number of 416-391-0324 at that time and this phone number shows up in the phone book of Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook, the founder of the Islamic Association of Palestine in the USA and currently believed to be the number two figure in HAMAS.[clxiv]  He may now be living in Saudi Arabia with his wife.

                                                                       
Chiheb Battikh (also reported as Chihab Batikh, Chihab Battikh and Chihab Battiel[clxv])
Chibeh Battikh is a former Tunisian who has lived in Canada for approximately 25 years.  His most recent address was in Montreal Quebec, but he has also lived in Mississauga Ontario.
Given the profile that the Muslim Brotherhood gives to dawah, education and outreach, an individual who directs such activities on the part of an adherent organization can be considered a key figure.  Mr. Battikh was head of the education section for the Muslim Association of Canada.
In March of 2014, he pled guilty to the attempted kidnapping of the three year old son of a rich Montreal businessman and was sentenced to six years.[clxvi]  The intent of the kidnapping was ransom.[clxvii]  The alleged kidnapping attempt took place in December 2012 near the F.X. Garneau Park in Outremont.  Court documents produced as a result of the preliminary hearing held in 2013[clxviii] suggest that Mr. Battikh was planning the kidnapping at least nine months ahead of time, although court testimony also suggested the attack was only planned “weeks” ahead.[clxix]
A French language paper (Tunis Tribune[clxx]) also picked up the kidnap for ransom story and the headline read:

Canada: Un Tuniso-canadien, proche d'Ennahdha accusé d'enlèvement d’enfant[clxxi]
      (Canada:  A Tunisian Canadian, close to Ennahdha accused of kidnapping a child)

The Ennahdha Movement and political party has long standing connections to the Muslim Brotherhood as well as some earlier connections to the Iranian Khomeneist revolution.  While claiming to be moderate, the party's general secretary in Tunisia, Hamadi Jebali, called the Tunisian revolution “a divine moment in a new state, and in, hopefully, a 6th caliphate," and that "the liberation of Tunisia will, God willing, bring about the liberation of Jerusalem.”[clxxii]  Shortly after that, leaders of the HAMAS party visited Tunisia.
Mr. Battikh has been involved with the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) for considerably more than 10 years and has filled a number of leadership roles. He has been quoted in the press on numerous occasions in an MAC role.  He was on the Board of Directors as far back as at least 2000[clxxiii], on the executive committee and he has also been the Head of the MAC Education Department and played a role in the MAC’s “Springs of Knowledge”[clxxiv] program as well.  His name was also quoted as being a representative of the MAC responsible for the purchase of a building when the MAC announced[clxxv] that they would purchase a new property for an Islamic Centre at 615 rue Belmont, Montreal, QC, H3B 2L8.  The three million dollar deal was the subject of a court action and Mr. Battikh’s name appears as acting on behalf of the MAC.[clxxvi] The status of the purchase remains unclear as the transaction is being contested in court.  His name was also listed as a contact for an MAC West Island sports camp for children with the contact number of 514-983-5566.[clxxvii]
The Muslim Association of Canada has a strong, long standing link to the Muslim Brotherhood and its founder, Hassan Banna.   As noted elsewhere in this paper, the MAC believes:
MAC's roots are deeply enshrined in the message of Prophet Mohammad. It’s modern roots can be traced to the vigorous intellectual revivalist effort that took hold in Muslim societies starting in the early twentieth century. This revival aimed at reconciling faith with the challenges of modernity and providing a clear articulation of balance and moderation in understanding Islam. In the Arab world, this revival culminated in the writings of the late Imam Hassan al-Banna and the movement of the Society of Muslim Brothers (commonly known as the Muslim Brotherhood). Al-Banna’s core messages of constructive engagement in society, focus on personal and communal empowerment, and organizational development had a deep impact on much of the Muslim world.[clxxviii]
It is now 75 years since Al-Banna initiated that blessed effort. The efforts of the Muslim Association of Canada are separate from the writings and organization of Al-Banna by time and space. The assertion that much of our philosophy and vision derive from the efforts of Al-Banna should not be taken to mean that we adopt in wholesale fashion all of the ideas developed and put forward by Al-Banna or the Muslim Brotherhood. However, we believe that the efforts of Al-Banna and subsequent generations of the Muslim Brotherhood remain the truest reflection of Islamic practice in the modern era.[clxxix] 

Daood Zwink

Dawood Zwink has a long history with a number of Muslim Brotherhood adherent organizations including the ISNA and the MYNA.  He is currently living in Michigan.  He recently became the new executive director of the Michigan Muslim Community Council.  The announcement June 6, 2013
Dawood Zwink is MMCC’s new Executive Director. He has a long history of community service. He worked with the Islamic Society of North America, and served as its Vice President. He was one of the founders of the Muslim Youth of North America, and more recently, worked with the Boy Scouts of Canada, Somali Relief Fund and the Muslim Observer. He can be reached at dzwink@mimuslimcouncil.com. [clxxx]
Mr. Zwink, as noted, was one of the founders of the MYNA, an offshoot of the ISNA.  His role seems to have been extensive, as noted in a history of the MYNA.  Several entries note him as:
Dec. 26-31, 1985 - The First Annual Muslim Youth Winter Conference takes place at ISNA Headquarters in Plainfield, IN, conducted by the ISNA Youth Planning Committee. Umar Hasan is the Chairman of both the committee and the conference. Fatima Abugideiri is the conference [program?] chairperson. Dawood Zwink is a speaker [and probably an advisor].
1988-89 – Ahmad Zaki Hammad elected for his second term as ISNA President. Both Dawood Zwink is VP U.S. and Dr. Syed Imtiaz Ahmad is V.P. Canada again for a second term as well. Ghulam Nabi Fai is president of MSA.
Feb. 13-14, 1988 - MYNA Executive Committee Meeting at ISNA Headquarters. Attendees include Dawood Zwink, chair of the advisory board, Baha Ahmed, east zone advisor, Nadifa Abdi, central zone advisor, Abdel Waheed Mustafa, western Canada zone advisor.
Feb. 13-14, 1988 - MYNA Executive Committee Meeting at ISNA Headquarters. Attendees include Dawood Zwink, chair of the advisory board, Baha Ahmed, east zone advisor, Nadifa Abdi, central zone advisor, Abdel Waheed Mustafa, western Canada zone advisor.

Khalid Tarabain

Mr Tarabain was on the ISNA Canada and ISNA USA board of directors when ISNA lost charity status in 2014 for funding terrorism.
He is currently listed as an area representative[clxxxi] on the Board of Directors of Human Concern International[clxxxii] as well as being on the board of HCI in 2006. [clxxxiii]
He has filled a number of other roles such as:
KHALID TARABAIN, director, ISNA-IDB EDUCATION TRUST (Canada, 19 Sep 2001- )
KHALID TARABAIN, director, THE CANADIAN ISLAMIC TRUST FOUNDATION (Canada, 5 Jul 1983- )
KHALID TARABAIN, director, ISLAMIC SCHOOLS ASSOCIATION OF CANADA (ISAC) (Canada, 26 Sep 1983- )
KHALID TARABAIN, director, AL RASHID MOSQUE (Canada, 23 Feb 2009- )
KHALID TARABAIN, director, INDIAN MUSLIM RELIEF COMMITTEE OF ISNA CANADA (Canada, 1 Aug 1997- )
KHALID TARABAIN, director, ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA (ISNA) (Canada, 13 Sep 1982- )[clxxxiv]

Mr. Tarabain was also the Chairman of the Edmonton Islamic Academy.  The Edmonton Islamic Academy Building is owned by the Arabian Muslim Association (Canadian Islamic Centre) and operated by Edmonton Islamic Academy Society through a rental agreement.”[clxxxv] 
Of note, the Arabian Muslim Association was involved in a 2004 court case[clxxxvi] concerning the use of the name “Canadian Islamic Centre, Al-Rashid Mosque” which was also being used by an Imam who had briefly worked at the mosque.  The court documents note that:
On June 20, 2002, a trust agreement was in fact concluded between the Arabian Muslim Association and the World Islamic Call Society concerning the operation of the “Canadian Islamic Centre, Al-Rashid Mosque”, the complex on 113 St. in Edmonton.
The court also made reference to an earlier agreement between the Arabian Muslim Association and
Clause 1: (Supervisory Board)
The Arabian Muslim Association (AMA) and The World Islamic Call Society (WICS) agree to establish a Supervisory Board consisting of five members, three from the AMA and two from the WICS who are nonresidents of the city of Edmonton, with the chairman being from the AMA. The Chairman will not have a vote unless there is a tie.
