BREAKING: Imam With Muslim Brotherhood Ties is Main Plaintiff in New Case Ruling Against Trump’s 3rd Travel Ban
The 9th circuit court just ruled against President Trump’s 3rd travel ban. The main plaintiff is an Imam with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
This is the same Imam who filed the lawsuit against President Trump the first time around in March.
As previously reported, Imam Ismail Elshikh, 39, leads the largest mosque in Hawaii and claims he is suffering “irreparable harm” from the president’s executive order, which places a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from six countries according to research by WND.
Imam Ismail Elshikh has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood as previously reported via WND:
Imam Ismail Elshikh, 39, leads the largest mosque in Hawaii and claims he is suffering “irreparable harm” from the president’s executive order, which places a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from six countries.
One of those six countries is Syria. Elshikh’s mother in law is Syrian and would not be able to visit her family in Hawaii for 90 days if Trump’s ban were allowed to go into effect.
Hawaii’s Obama-appointed federal judge, Derrick Watson, made sure the ban did not go into effect, striking it down Wednesday while buying Hawaii’s claim that it amounts to a “Muslim ban.” The state’s attorney general, along with co-plaintiff Elshikh, claims the ban would irreparably harm the state’s tourism industry and its Muslim families.
The Muslim Brotherhood connection:
Elshikh was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt, the home base of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose stated goal is to spread Shariah law throughout the world.
Elshikh is living in the U.S. on a green card, which gives him permanent legal status.
The proof that his mosque is affiliated with the Brotherhood is found in the court records for Honolulu County, which lists the deed holder as the North American Islamic Trust.
John Guandolo, a former FBI counter-terrorism specialist and now private consultant to law enforcement at Understanding the Threat, said all mosques under the “Muslim Association of” moniker are typically affiliated with the Brotherhood.
But the clincher in this case is that the mosque property is traced to NAIT, “confirming it is a Muslim Brotherhood organization,” Guandolo told WND in an email.

Via The Hill:
A panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled against the third iteration of President Trump‘s travel ban, saying it goes against federal law.
“We conclude that the President’s issuance of the Proclamation once again exceeds the scope of his delegated authority,” the court said in its ruling.
The most recent iteration of the ban bars people from eight countries – six of which are predominantly Muslim – from coming to the U.S.
The San Francisco-based appeals court, however, said the Trump administration could continue to bar individuals from countries in the Middle East and North Africa from entering the U.S. if they do not have a “bonafide” relationship with someone in the U.S.
The court said the ruling would be put on hold pending any review by the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court just decided earlier this month that it would allow Trump’s travel ban to take effect. This is just more abuse from the bench. These judges are out of control.
So now more time and money is going to be wasted as this case goes to the Supreme Court ONCE AGAIN.

The Muslim Brotherhood is the enemy of the United States. A Muslim with ties to a terrorist organization should not be able to file a lawsuit against our government to dictate who comes through our borders. This is pure insanity.
