Muslim Brotherhood On Tie To CAIR

Sandmonkey conducted an interview on behalf of Pajamas Media with Mohammed Habib, the Muslim Brotherhood's #2 man in Egypt. Towards the end of the interview, the connection between the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR came up:
SM: This is naturally very important. Who represents you in the US?

Mohamed Habib: Well, there are there those who do represent us, who do that role.

SM: But it’s not CAIR, right? The Council for American Islamic Relations? Many people say that they are your front. Other people say that its ISNA. But back to CAIR, some people from the Muslim Brotherhood have denied having a connection with CAIR. Do they really represent you?

Mohamed Habib: Ehh, this is a sensitive subject, and it’s kind of problematic, especially after 9/11 …

SM: For them to say that there is a relationship between you two?

Mohamed Habib: Yes. You can say that.
Sensitive...problematic, but apparently not inaccurate.
