Phoenix, AZ – Tuesday, June 28 at 2:30pm E.T., Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy will testify before the Subcommittee on Oversight, Agency Action, Federal Rights and Federal Courts at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington D.C. in a hearing titled “Willful Blindness: Consequences of Agency Efforts to Deemphasize Radical Islam in Combating Terrorism.”
“The hearing will examine the Obama administration’s refusal to attribute the terrorist threats we face with radical Islam, hobbling our ability to combat the enemy. The hearing will specifically investigate how the federal government has not only refused to appropriately identify the specific threat of radical Islam, but has sought to undermine the people and information who have sought to highlight the threat.”
“This hearing will likely focus on which figures within the federal government worked to squelch any research connecting the dots between local Muslim Brotherhood officials, these individual terrorists, and foreign terror networks. Senators on the committee now have an opportunity to expose the Muslim Brotherhood influence within DHS and the FBI, their invidious “Countering Violent Extremism” Agenda, and their hand in covering up counter-terrorism investigations.”
Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, AIFD President, also stated, “I am honored to testify before Chairman Cruz’s subcommittee and before the American people on the importance to the U.S. government’s national security strategy in identifying Islamists and targeting the ideology of Islamism.”
The American Islamic Forum for Democracy is a non-profit organization based in Phoenix, Ariz. dedicated to providing an American Muslim voice advocating genuine Muslim reform against Islamism and the ideologies which fuel global Muslim radicalization.

In December 2015, AIFD convened and helped launch the Muslim Reform Movement, a coalition of over 12 Muslim organizations and leaders dedicated to reform for values of peace, human rights and secular governance.
