The Islamic Supreme Council of America (ISCA) is a non-profit, non-governmental religious organization dedicated to working for the cause of Islam, which appears to have close links to the US neoconservatives (the Hudson Institute links to them from their website).

On November 11, 2004, the ISCA Chairman Shaykh Muhammed Kabbani was a Guest of President George W. Bush at a White House Ramadan Dinner; on October 27, 2004, the USAID Director visited the ISCA's headquarters. [1]

In December 2005, Hillel Fradkin noted that: "Some American Muslim organizations are endowed with the same spirit. Others even possess direct connections to terrorist groups through various individual leaders. Because these organizations have few rivals, their claims to represent Muslims have often been credited by the media and the government. But this has increasingly come into question as their claim to moderation has also been doubted. Fortunately, there are some exceptions—notably the Islamic Supreme Council of America and the American Islamic Congress."
