An imam of an organization connected to a co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism case will speak as part of a panel at the US State Department’s annual Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom in Washington on Wednesday, JNS reported.

Mohamed Magid, who was born in Sudan in 1965 and emigrated to the US in 1987, is currently imam of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center  in Virginia.

ADAMS, a network of mosques and Islamic community centered in the Washington area, is affiliated with the Islamic Society of North America, a co-conspirator in the case of the Holy Land Foundation.

The foundation was the largest Islamic charity in the US until 2001, when it was designated as a terrorist organization. Its assets were seized and the organization was closed down. Several employees of the charity were jailed for providing material support to Hamas and for related offenses.

Magid was the Islamic Society's East Zone representative, before becoming vice president and then president. The US government listed the charity in the Holy Land Foundation case as among “individuals/entities who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood.”

Magid is scheduled to appear on a general session panel entitled “Different Faiths Advancing Religious Freedom Together.”
