A collection of names of individuals in the United States with ties to Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations. It also lists the organizations with which each individual is affiliated, and gives brief background information on that person. Most significantly, privacy laws and internal policies generally prevent Federal, state and local departments and agencies from collecting such data, whereas private citizens have no such restrictions. The database design is multi-layered and gives the user a maximum of information in a way that is easy to understand. An important aspect of the database is that the information it contains has been verified with open sources, which in turn have been embedded within the database and made readily accessible.
Sources of Data
Names listed in this database have been gleaned from a wide variety of online sources open to the general public, including, but not limited to, news reports, government Web sites, YouTube clips, and even the Web sites of the very organizations named in the database (e.g. CAIR, ISNA, MSA, ICNA, etc.). The sources used to verify the associations have been saved in PDF format and URL links.
Potential Uses and Users
This database is a powerful tool that can be used typically by law enforcement officials, members of the intelligence community, the military, federal and state prosecutors, and lawmakers. For example, a congressman investigating an individual or an organization here in the United States with ties to radical Islamist groups abroad may find this database to be an invaluable resource. Private-sector organizations will also be empowered by this database to expand their knowledge of the radical associations of certain groups and individuals within their spaces. And because the overwhelming majority of the information contained in this database has been verified with open sources, public and non-public officials alike can feel confident that it is reliable and substantiated by factual evidence.
Size of the Database
As of April 28, 2014, 4,335 individual names have been verified and filed in the database. More than 10,000 PDF files (over 10 GB of data) from open sources have been uploaded to authenticate the links between the persons of interest on file in the database and various organizations in the United States affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood.
"I read and hear about the Muslim Brotherhood every day in the news. But I feel like I’m not getting the whole story of their threat to us here in the U.S.
What can I do?"
