Constituent organization of the Islamic Society of North America

Founded in 1969, the Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers (AMSE) describes itself as “a group of professionals, para-professionals and near-professionals in science and engineering and related fields, who are also Muslims by faith.”
“to channel the talents of Muslim scientists and engineers in providing Muslim individuals and communities assistance and guidance in all spheres of human activity”;
“to provide encouragement, guidance and assistance to Muslim scientists and engineers in their education and careers”;
“to improve the distribution and dissemination of technical information and Islamic knowledge through journals, publications, meetings and similar medias”; and
“in general, to carry out any and all activities that are strictly scientific, educational, religious, cultural and charitable in accordance with Islamic teachings”
AMSE was named in a May 1991 Muslim Brotherhood document -- titled "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America" -- as one of the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded "organizations of our friends" that shared the common goal of destroying America and turning it into a Muslim nation. These "friends" were identified by the Brotherhood as groups that could help teach Muslims "that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands ... so that ... God's religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions."
Also named in the Muslim Brotherhood document were:
AMSE’s president from 2005-07 was Khurshid Qureshi, president and CEO of zeeWAVES Corporation, a hi-tech company he had founded in 2003. Qureshi also had spent some twenty years working for multinational corporations such as General Motors, Ingersoll Rand, and Hughes Corporation. A graduate of Oklahoma State University, Qureshi did post-graduate work at the Stuart School of Business, the Illinois Institute of Technology, and the Anderson School of Business at UCLA. During his student days at Oklahoma State, he coordinated the establishment of Muslim Students Association chapters in Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Kansas, and Arkansas.
