Muslim American Society

Muslim American Society of Queens

The Muslim American Society (MAS) is a Falls Church, Virginia, that describes itself as an Islamic revival and reform movement. Its founding member were mainly foreign students of Arab descent.[1]

It was created by the Muslim Brotherhood, after a debate among Muslim Brotherhood members in the U.S. about whether to remain underground, or to have a public face.[2][3] The Moslem Brotherhood was created in Egypt in 1928, and is committed to the globalization of Islam by means of social engineering and violent jihad.[4]

MAS has instructed its members to evade questions about the group's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and to define jihad as a "divine legal right" of Muslims to be used for defense and the spread of Islam.[5] MAS leaders have said that these views are not now held by MAS leaders.[6]

MAS also has an affiliate, the MAS Freedom Foundation,[7] whose Executive Director is Mahdi Bray. For a number of years, Esam Omeish was its President.

MAS has participated in interfaith dialogue with the U.S. Bishops' Committee for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs.

In November 2014, MAS was designated a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.[8]
