The Syrian Muslim Brotherhood (SMB), in alliance with the ex-vice president of Syria Abdul Halim Khaddam, a staunch Ba’athist, have opened an office in Washington DC. The aim of the office is to infiltrate the US government to influence its apathy towards political Islam.

RPS has learned that Ammar Abdul Hamid, a Syrian intellectual who works at Brookings Institute, will be running the office for the National Salvation Front. His duties are to sell political Islam and Ba’athism to reluctant US government officials and to give the Muslim Brotherhood a platform in the Think Tank community of Washington from which they can preach democracy.

Furthermore, a new moderate Muslim organization named the Society for Justice and Development based out of London the UK criticized the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood today in an article published by Elaph. Their criticism centered on the attempts of the Muslim Brotherhood to stifle their growth for fear that they would attract Syrian moderate Muslims hungry for Islam but not for extremism.

Ali al-Ahmad, the writer of the article, claims that the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood does not act any different than the Ba’athists in control in Damascus; it does so by excluding people and organizations that the SMB do not agree with from any political process. Many other organizations, who joined the National Salvation Front in the past and then left them, have leveled the same accusations against the organization.
