Atif Moon, Co-Founder of CFGU, Visits ISNA Office in Washington, D.C.
October 25, 2013-Atif Moon, Co-founder of the Center for Global Understanding (CFGU) visited ISNA's Office of Interfaith and Community Alliances in Washington, DC. on October 23, 2013. While in the office he met with Christina Warner, Campaign Director of Shoulder to Shoulder, to learn more about the current activities of the campaign. Moon also met with Dr. Sayyid Syeed, ISNA's National Director for the Office of Interfaith and Community Alliances. They discussed the successes of CFGU, as well as ISNA's current programs and focus.
Atif was named one of 10 Outstanding Young Americans in 2009 (http://www.centerforglobalunderstanding.org/atif_moon1.php), and has achieved many awards and honors for his work and dedication. Moon is a true leader in his generation of American Muslims, evident in his mission for co-founding the Center for Global Understanding. CFGU is a civic, educational organization designed to bring people together by focusing on cultivating the next generation of American leaders through an internship program in Washington, DC. CFGU focuses their efforts on under-represented minority groups in the US, with a particular focus on American Muslims. It is this support for the Muslim community in America that makes ISNA a strong advocate of their cause.
ISNA has been a supporter of CFGU since it's founding, and joins in an effort to spread the word about the program, and attract the best and brightest young Muslim Americans to come intern in Washington. The program has produced numerous leaders since it's inception, and will continue to be among the best opportunities for Muslim Americans to get involved in the countless opportunities Washington has to offer.

MIM: From the CFGU homepage:
"The Center for Global Understanding (CFGU) is a non-profit civic and an educational organization designed to bring people together by focusing on cultivating the next generation of American leaders through our Washington D.C. Internship program.
The Center for Global Understanding has partnered with The Washington Center (TWC) for this initiative..."
MIM: Endorsements by Islamists Keith Ellison and Andre Carsons. Note that 'civic opportunities' and 'civic engagement' are euphemisms for stealth jihad and Islamist infilitration.
Congressman Keith Ellison
"The Center for Global Understanding (CFGU) and the Washington Center (TWC) provide college students with experiences and first-hand knowledge on how our government functions. It is an excellent opportunity for Muslim American students to engage in meaningful civic opportunities whether they are in Public health, Finance, Law or Public Policy. CFGU/TWC are working effectively today to help create this opportunity for young adults to ensure that our future generations possess the skills and leadership qualities to meet the challenges of today as well as tomorrow."
Congressman André Carson
"The Center for Global Understanding (CFGU) program offers a unique opportunity to our nation's Muslim American youth. Here they get a chance to experience first-hand civic engagement on how bills become laws and ways to participate in public policy. What a great chance to have Muslim Americans become part of our nation's political conversation. I encourage you to support this positive and great effort."
MIM: Atif Moon put his civic engagement aka stealth jihad into practice working as a Presidential intern which provides further proof of how deep the Islamist infilitration of the government can go using this tactic. The bio below appears on the webpage of the American Muslim Civic Leadership Institute (AMCLI) which is 'committed to civic engagement' aka stealth jihad and infiltration for Muslims and is partly funded by George Soro's Open Society Foundation.
"The American Muslim Civic Leadership Institute (AMCLI) develops and trains American Muslim leaders who are committed to civic engagement. AMCLI strives to empower these pioneering leaders to realize their full potential, and in doing so, have a more effective and sustained impact on the issues affecting their communities, and America at large. Our nation is stronger when all citizens participate in shaping our democracy.
AMCLI fellows are at the forefront of creating a greater presence of Muslims in the public square..."
