Rached Ghannouchi was a guest of the Islamic Society of North America
This organization was founded in 1981 by members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Several of its administrators, including Ahmed Elkadi and Jamal Badawi, were also former official directors of the Muslim Brotherhood. In the following video Jamal Badawi declared that he is an active militant for the re-establishment of a caliphate without borders:
The Islamic Society of North America is an umbrella organization which claims to cover 70% of American mosques. During the Holy Land Foundation terrorism trial in 2007, the State Justice Dept. designated ISNA, CAIR and NAIT as “an entity which is or has been a member of the American Muslim Brotherhood.” ISNA lodged a complaint to be removed from the State Department’s list. Judge Solis ruled that the government should not have drawn up a list of associations having links with the Muslim Brotherhood, but that “the government had produced ample proof which permitted to link CAIR, ISNA, NAIT with the Islamic Association for Palestine and with Hamas.”
In 2014 Azhar Azeez was appointed president of ISNA. For many years he worked for multinational companies such as General Electric, American General Life and Capital One. He was also national director of Islamic Relief USA.
