The Ikhwan are running their own little parallel lobbying mission in DC, and it’s every bit as crazy as you would imagine. A handful of Ikhwan are in DC looking for attention, and judging from what “media coverage” there is out there, the Parallel Universe Doorknock of Crazies appears to involve a lot of waiting around to meet with junior staffers — when not posing around the Hill while flashing the group’s four-fingered gang sign. (Make sure you scroll through the full article to catch all of the photos.) Among the Ikhwan’s crack lobbyists: Ayat Al-Oraby, who the always-blunt Mokhtar Awad describes on The Tweeter as “a raving sectarian lunatic based out of NY & frequent guest on pro MB networks.” The lady in question called last fall for a boycott of Christian businesses (watch, if you have the stomach for hate this early in the morning, runtime 3:19). Y’all keep it classy now, hear?
