U.S. Muslim Brotherhood doctor speaks out on Syria
“Chemical weapons in the hands of someone with a “mafia mentality” is problem for the entire world … They can spread it all over the place” – Dr. Yahia Rahim
The News Herald of Panama City, FL published an article featuring a Syrian-born physician residing in Northwest Florida regarding his thoughts on recent events in Syria. The article did not mention the doctor’s affiliation as the financial head of the U.S. based Muslim Brotherhood.
As identified in the Holy Land Terror Funding trial, Muslim Brotherhood organizations have provided financing to known terrorist groups such as Hamas and the Islamic Jihad Movement. Both groups have been responsible for suicide bombings and rocket attacks – many of the victims being children.
Syria-born Bay doctor: Military response might be only effective option

PANAMA CITY – Children dying because they can’t breathe.
That was the story local doctor Yahia Rahim got from a fellow doctor in Syria last week after reports that the Syrian Government used chemical weapons on its own people. The Syrian government denies the allegation and blames the rebels for the attack.
It is unclear how many people died in the attack.
Rahim said he spoke with a physician who tried to assist about 50 children who were having trouble breathing after the attack. All of them died in less than an hour, Rahim said.
Rahim was one of the first working physicians to get into refugee camps outside Syria after the conflict erupted in 2011 and has been back several times during the conflict between Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Syrian rebels. During his trips Rahim has treated people for a a variety of issues including dehydration and infections and injuries that resulted from the conflict. The Syrian native has lived in America for more than 30 years.
He says a military response is probably the only way to stop the killing.
“I personally feel the international community should help,” he said.
COMMENTS: Dr. Rahim’s reference to a “mafia mentality” is ironic, in that the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood (MB) operates along the lines of a criminal syndicate with a myriad of front groups (see Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld that’s Conspiring to Islamize America).
The unfortunate reality is that much of the American public, including the media, is oblivious to what is happening in their communities as it pertains to “radical Islam” and affiliated groups. Within the U.S. much of the focus is on funding as well as increasing political capital/influence. Steven Merley’s The Muslim Brotherhood in the United States is an excellent source to help understand some of the inner workings of the MB as well as goals/objectives.
Dr. Rahim is currently listed as the NAIT contact for the Bay County Islamic Society and is a director of the the Panama City Advanced School Corporation. The school’s head, Rashid Karaman (Qurman), was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial, attachment A, part III, no. 46.
