Clarion does a lot of good work that's generally sound and well researched. So this is most troubling: that the US State Department appears to have no qualms in meeting that nasty outfit, the Muslim Brotherhood. You know, the one set up in the 1920s by Hassan al-Banna, grandaddy of the oleaginous Tariq Ramadan and parent of Hamas.
Islamist groups still have an open door to the State Department under Secretary Tillerson. A coalition of Muslim Brotherhood groups is boasting that it was granted a visit to the department to provide their perspective on the Temple Mount crisis.
The U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) is an umbrella of Islamist extremist groups that was formed in 2014 so they can operate as a single body. The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood had been hoping to achieve such unification since at least 1991 when the Brotherhood expressed this desire in a secret memo uncovered by federal investigators.
Most of the groups in the USCMO are listed by the Brotherhood as being fronts for its "Islamic Movement" in America. The memo described "their work in America as a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within."https://clarionproject.org/state-dept-hosts-muslim-brotherhood-coalition/
