Mosqueteers Unite! - Feisal Abdul Rauf to Speak at ISNA Confab
08:19 - July 31, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Islamic Society of North America, declared in federal court proceedings to be "associated" with Hamas,1 is having its annual wing ding on Aug 31-Sept 3, 2012 at the Washington DC Convention Center [source, Program: 49th Annual ISNA Convention - THEME: One Nation Under God: Striving for the Common Good]
Though the event itself, like everything that ISNA undertakes is troubling, we would very briefly like to focus on two of the event's workshops:
Session 6AL Political: Forming a More Perfect Union.
Panel includes Congressman Keith Ellison [D, 5th Dist. MI]
Session 11A: Honoring Human Dignity: Toward a Just Society
Panelists for 11A include, Congressman Andre Carson [D, 7th Dist. IN] and Feisal Abdul Rauf of Ground Zero Hamosque infamy. This gaggle is moderated by the decidedly immoderate: Ahmed Bedier, ex of the Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR].
Actually, the speakers list reads like the cultural jihadists' "A" team.

08:00 - July 30, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - During testimony delivered before the House Committee on Homeland Security, Chaired by Peter King [R-NY], Janet Napolitano, the Secretary of the Dept. of Homeland Security, made the startling suggestion that the present administration could allow an untold number of members of Foreign Terrorist Organizations [FTOs] to travel to the United States upon the suspicion that their presence here might be "useful," under a set of guidelines which are ill defined.
There are currently 51 organizations designated as FTOs by the State Dept., one of which is Gama’a al-Islamiyya [the Islamic Group], currently #12 on the State Department's list and recognized as one of Egypt's most violent jihadist groups.
What brought this issue into public view at this moment is that a month ago a member of Gama’a al-Islamiyya, Hani Nour Eldin, was allowed to enter the country through the combined efforts of State and DHS..
It has become apparent that neither DHS nor State followed the standard protocol for vetting this type of individual and the appropriate members of Congress were not informed.
Considering his affiliation with an FTO, Eldin is in a de-facto sense a declared enemy of the United States, yet he was allowed to set foot on American soil and incredibly, granted an audience with "senior WH officials." Though Secret Service checked him out to their own satisfaction we doubt that was as thorough a search as was warranted. .
Eldin used his time with Obama's inner circle to plead for the release of terror kingpin Omar Abdel Rahman [the Blind Sheikh] who is now serving a life sentence [thank you Andy McCarthy] because of his role in numerous terror plots including one to blow up prominent New York landmarks. Rahman reportedly issued the fatwa which justified, under the Shari'a, the first bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993

July 25, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org -The Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, demands the Department of Defense drop me as a lecturer at the Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy.
A Monday press release said CAIR sent a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta requesting the dismissal of Reza Kahlili, my pseudonym, “who wrote on an Islamophobic hate site that he renounced Islam and began the quest to find the real God.”
It cited articles I wrote referring to Iranian agents who had coordinated operations out of American mosques and Islamic centers and warning that Iranian agents have infiltrated the United States through the “Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Student Association.”
“This is yet another unfortunate example of our nation’s military and counterterrorism personnel being trained by individuals who weaken America’s security by promoting their own religious and political agendas,” wrote CAIR national Executive Director Nihad Awad in his letter.
CAIR’s attack surprises me. In becoming a spy for the CIA while a member of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, I not only risked my life but those of my loved ones to protect the security of America and the free world and raise awareness of the brutality Iranians suffer under a regime that has no mercy, even for women and children.
As an American citizen, I have the right to convert to whatever religion I wish. I converted to Christianity, finding love and the true God. How is that Islamophobia? Or does CAIR support laws such as those in Iran where converts can be imprisoned or executed for renouncing Islam and finding Christ? Should I be persecuted in the United States because I am now a Christian?
California Legislature's Efforts to Destroy Traditional Families
A New Age Parenting Extravaganza
By CAMILLE GIGLIO and WILLIAM MAYER
Preamble: The family, as an institution, is under attack by the left. It is a coordinated effort to destroy the key social structure holding society together. These ideologues understand that they can't succeed politically, i.e., are unable to fully implement its plan of a top down autocratic command economy, unless they markedly weaken the current culture or reduce it to rubble first. This is a central element in their strategic thinking. They also realize that this process can be greatly aided by linguistic manipulation, in this case expanding the meaning of "family," to the point where it becomes so vague that the word no longer has any meaning.
The historical record, as far as it exists, indicates that the family as a basic organizational unit - variously configured - was the central mechanism whereby humans became civilized. The family unit knows no boundaries, it is entirely cross cultural and was seen in every human society, from prehistoric times to the present - it's a constant. The family unit was always geared towards procreation, hence it is inherently a relationship between males and females, though the exact composition can and did vary according to sometimes very complex kinship rules.
There is a voluminous body of evidence to support this contention, developed primarily by cultural anthropologists. [see, George Peter Murdock, Social structure New York: Macmillan. 1949, "The family is a social group characterized by common residence, economic cooperation, and reproduction. It includes adults of both sexes, at least two of whom maintain a socially approved sexual relationship, and one or more children, own or adopted, of the sexually cohabiting adults.", [additionally, please refer to, Pierre van den Berg, The Human Family Systems, an Evolutionary View, 1979, Elsevier.
July 24, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Leftist attempts at re-engineering the entire concept of the traditional family is in the news again and under continued assault from Sacramento Democrats. The state's newspapers are littered with tactically placed articles extolling the virtues of "non-traditional," families, representing them as being normatively equivalent to male/female parentage.
One example of legislative efforts along these lines comes from California State Senator Mark Leno’s [D-SF] AB 1476 - dealing very broadly [and with intended vagueness in certain critical areas] with parentage. If this bill gets signed by the Governor, not only will California's children have the opportunity to have two mommies or two daddies, they could have three “natural” mommies or 4 natural daddies. They could end up with a whole slew of half brothers and sisters and quadrupled numbers of grandparents - a veritable forest of expanding family trees.
McCain Compromised Regarding the Muslim Brotherhood, Abedin Must Be Vetted
By WILLIAM MAYER
09:30 - July 23, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - In a long winded presser issued by Senator John McCain [R-AZ], in part delivered as part of a floor speech, the Senior Senator from Arizona delivered a blustery attack on Representatives Michelle Bachmann, Trent Franks, Louie Gohmert, Thomas Rooney and Lynn Westmoreland, all signatories to a letter of inquiry made to the State Department's Deputy Inspector General, Ambassador Harold W. Geisel.
The letter expressed concern over the apparently successful influence peddling efforts being run by American members of the Muslim Brotherhood and its domestic affiliates.
"...activities that appear to be a result of influence operations conducted by individuals and organizations associated with the Muslim Brotherhood...it has been established in federal court that the Muslim Brotherhood's mission in the United States is "destroying the Western civilization from within" a practice the Muslim Brotherhood call "civilization jihad..." [source, Geisel Inquiry]
Specifically named in the request is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's long-time [circa 1996, when she was a Clinton WH intern] aide, Huma Abedin.
...according to "The Muslim Brotherhood in America: The Enemy Within," a product of the Center for Security Policy, the [State] Department's Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin, has three family members - her late father, her mother and her brother - connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations. Her position affords her routine access to the Secretary and to policy making...
The document goes on to note that under Mrs. Clinton's watch, often as a result of the Secretary's personal direction, numerous actions have been taken which were, "enormously favorable to the Muslim Brotherhood..."
July 18, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Senator John McCain [R-AZ] today took to the floor of the U.S. Senate where he delivered an intemperate attack on efforts by members of Congress to investigate the possibility that this White House along with its Department of State have been penetrated by Muslim Brotherhood operatives.
Specifically Mr. McCain spoke in defense of long-time aid to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin, against whom have been lodged serious allegations regarding troubling ties maintained by some of her relatives to foreign Islamist organizations.
As we wrote in a June 19 dispatch:
"On June 13, five U.S. Congressmen, Michele Bachmann [R, MN], Trent Franks [R, AZ], Louie Gohmert [R, TX], Thomas Rooney [R, FL] and Lynn Westmoreland [R, GA] sent an open letter to U.S. Deputy Inspector General, Ambassador Harold J. Geisel, expressing alarm over the administration's lack of judgment when dealing with Islamist entities, specifically the Muslim Brotherhood..." [source Congress Alarmed Over Muslim Brotherhood Influence Operation Within the Administration
That letter in pdf format is available here Congressional Letter of Inquiry, and it contains the following text:
"...the [State] Department's Deputy Chief of Staff, Huma Abedin, has three family members - her late father, her mother and her brother - connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations..."
At this point we are unable to judge the veracity of these charges, but they certainly are a serious enough matter to demand a thorough investigation. There is at the very least, the appearance of great potential impropriety here.
July 18, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Props to Steven Emerson, a highly respected terrorism authority and proprietor of The Investigative Project, wherefrom he details a curious event involving Hamas linked and convicted felons, Bayan and Basman Elashi who were, in a very hush-hush manner recently deported, allegedly making a brief stop in Cairo, Egypt then moving on to Gaza - Hamas Central - where they were welcomed by their long-time partners in terror.
"The Investigative Project on Terrorism...confirmed that the men deported last week are Bayan and Basman Elashi...convicted felons tied to a terror-financing network based out of Dallas....another brother, Ghassan Elashi, was a founder and chairman of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), an American fundraising arm for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas. The Elashi brothers also worked for Infocom, a webhosting company in Richardson Tex. Prosecutors say the company received $250,000 from Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook, who was indicted in the case...Bayan Elashi was Infocom's chief executive officer. Basman was its logistics and credit manager. In 2004, each was convicted of money laundering, export violations to Libya and Syria involving computer shipments and making false statements to federal officials. In a separate trial a year later, Bayan Elashi was convicted on 10 counts of dealing in the property of a Specially Designated Terrorist for transactions with Marzook, while Basman was convicted on one count... Bayan Elashi was sentenced to 84 months in prison, while Bayan was sentenced to 80 months..." [source, Exclusive: ADC's Misleading Sob Story on Elashi Brothers
Taking up the hue and cry here in the U.S. is one of the usual suspects, the American-Arab Anti Discrimination Committee [ADC] which is attempting to cast this event in a typical Islamist light, the stereotypical portrayal of an "Islamophobic" America, with the poor Elashi brothers, simply "stateless individuals," being the aggrieved party.
"...The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) expresses great concern and extreme disappointment over a decision made by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to deport two Palestinian nationals whom are deemed stateless. The brothers, originally from Gaza, were taken by ICE and the U.S. Air Marshalls from their children in Texas and sent to Egypt. The brothers do not have permission to stay in Egypt. Further, due to the blockade of Gaza and Israeli polices they cannot enter Palestine. The brothers are currently detained at the airport in Cairo, and appear likely to l be detained indefinitely..." [source, ADC Expresses Extreme Disappointment over DHS Decision to Deport Stateless Palestinians]
Despite ADC's claims, the Elashis were apparently welcomed into Gaza this past Saturday. Additionally, nowhere in this presser, as observes Mr. Emerson, is the real story surrounding the Elashis revealed. For all we would know from the statement these two gentlemen were just strolling down the avenue on their way to help out at the local Jewish home for the aged when the Feds spotted them, quickly identified them as Muslims and then in an extra-constitutional action, gave them an all-expenses-paid, one-way ticket to the Middle East, courtesy of Uncle Sam.
July 16, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, travelled to Cairo this weekend to personally consult with Mohamed Morsi, Egypt's president elect.
Her presence there was an act of supplication and a not so veiled endorsement of a future Egypt solely guided by the shari'a.
The Secretary's manner seemed on of resignation as she sat across from Morsi, a high ranking member of the Muslim Brotherhood's leadership who in his spare time, just happens to be Egypt's political leader. Comfortably presiding over court for his guest, Morsi looked every bit as contented as the proverbial cat who just ate the canary.
Below from State's official announcement:
"This is, of course, a time marked by many historic firsts, and it is very clear that Egyptians are in the midst of complex negotiations about the transition, from the composition of your parliament to the writing of a new constitution to the powers of the president. Only Egyptians can answer these questions, but I have come to Cairo to reaffirm the strong support of the United States for the Egyptian people and for your democratic transition." [source, U.S. State Dept. document,
The conditions under which Mr. Morsi assumed control of the country were more than suspect. There were widespread and credible allegations of widespread fraud including vote buying. outright coercion and violence on the part of Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood which is now undoubtedly Egypt's most potent political force [Note: though doctrinal issues separate them from the Salafists, there is broad practical agreement between the two regarding the need to fully institutionalize shari'a, hence they are aligned on the age old undertanding that, "the enemy of my enemy, is my ally," thus Morsi's true political heft might be far greater than it seems].
By EMERSON VERMAAT
July 16, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Israel’s security and stability is seriously threatened by an ever increasing influx of African and Muslim illegal immigrants in the past seven years. These immigrants crossed the country’s vulnerable and porous southern border, often with the help of local Bedouin tribes in the increasingly lawless Sinai. In 2010 alone, some 13,500 illegal immigrants entered Israel. In the first three months of 2012, the illegal border crossings by Africans amounted to 5,500. There are now over 60,000 African illegal immigrants in Israel. “If we don’t stop their entry, the problem that currently stands at 60,000 could grow to 600,000, and that threatens our existence as a Jewish and democratic state,” Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned last May.
Mr. Netanyahu is not exaggerating and illegal immigration is not just an Israeli problem. Tens of thousands of illegal immigrants enter the United States every year, either by crossing the porous northern border with Canada or via Mexico. “The real aim of border enforcement is to deter illegal acts,” Edward Alden and Brian Roberts write in Foreign Affairs. “Effective enforcement is impossible if lawbreaking is the norm.” “In the last decade, 90-98 percent of the Mexican nationals who tried to enter the United States illegally were ultimately successful.” In addition to poor Mexican immigrants, there is a growing number of illegal immigrants from Africa and the Muslim world who manage to enter the United States – and not so few of them have ties with criminal or terrorist networks.
The experience with African and Muslim illegal immigrants and asylum seekers in Europe has shown that it is virtually impossible to deport them to their home countries. They settle in Europe’s big cities where they often pose a serious problem to law enforcement. In Belgium, for example, the bulk of the prison population consists of non-Western immigrants. There are over 600 very heavy criminals with a Moroccan background in those prisons.
Likewise, Nigerian and West African criminal networks are now being regarded as posing a substantial threat in Britain, Holland and Italy. “Nigerian organized crime in the UK covers a wide spectrum of illegal activities, including drug trafficking, money laundering, people trafficking and immigration fraud,” writes Mary Alice Young in Jane’s Intelligence Review, the leading British monthly on crime, immigration and terrorism. “The impact that Nigerian organized crime has on the UK is noticeable to law enforcement bodies, not just because of the range of illegal activities perpetrated, but also owing to the level of wealth they can generate.”
Nigerian organized crime also operates from Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands. According to the findings of the Dutch police, these Nigerians cooperate with Latin American and African drug criminals and are making huge additional profits from fraud, prostitution and marriage scams.
Last May, a migrant trafficker was arrested in Amsterdam. It turned out that this man alone was responsible for organizing at least 32 sham or fake marriages between East European women and West African males.
Raping and assaulting women in Israel
African immigrants in Israel have been associated with gang rapes and violent assaults. On April 25, 2012, two African males raped a 15-year old girl and one month later, on May 15, several African immigrants sexually assaulted a woman. Both rape incidents occurred in southern Tel Aviv where many of these immigrants are concentrated. There was a demonstration to protest against the rapes. Carmela Rosner, one of the demonstrators, has lived in the neighborhood for 27 years, Haaretz reported. She “held a sign that read: ‘They rape girls and elderly women, murder, steal, stab, burglarize. We’re afraid to leave home.’ She complained that longtime residents have become a minority in the neighborhood while the Sudanese, she said, are now in the majority.”
Rape, polygamy, promiscuity and wife beating is quite common in a lot of African countries. Post-Apartheid South Africa, Nigeria and Congo are the most notorious examples, but women are also often subjected to abuse or maltreatment in African countries with a substantial Muslim population. Prevalence of Aids and other sexually transmittable diseases (STBs) is very high in most African countries.
Immigration from Africa entails importing Africa’s widepread sexual habits and sexual diseases. According to an investigation conducted in Spain in 2006, about 25 percent of the 11,000 sub-Saharan African immigrants tested in the Canary Islands had a sexually transmittable disease or STB. It is not just STBs such as Aids which pose a serious danger. Illegal immigrants from Africa often contracted malaria, (drug-resistant) tuberculosis, scabies or so-called “neglected tropical diseases” (NTDs) in their home countries.
11:52 - July 12, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipelineNews.org - On Tuesday, president Obama was interviewed by Oscar Haza which was later broadcast on Spanish television station WJAN-41.
Remarkably, when the president was queried about the potential threat posed by Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, Mr. Obama replied that he doesn't consider Chavez a "serious" threat, "...But overall my sense is that what Mr. Chavez has done over the last several years has not had a serious national security impact on us." [source, Laura Matthews, Obama Says Chavez Posed No ‘Serious’ Security Threat, International Business Times,
At this point in this presidency it's difficult to be blindsided by Mr. Obama's apparent lack of knowledge on the key threats facing the United States, of which Mr. Chavez via his alarmingly friendly relationships with Iran and its various proxy armies led by Hezbollah as well as with Syria, where Chavez is providing fuel to Assad's Bashar Hafez al-Assad are but two examples, still Mr. Obama's latest display of ignorance is shocking.
It's not as if Chavez' questionable relationships with hostile foreign powers are unknown. For example a July 9 piece published in the Wall Street Journal outlines how Mr. Chavez is aiding Iran by propping up the faltering Assad regime in Syria, supplying fuel to keep his war machine rolling.
"Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez and his state-oil company are providing vital energy support to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and conducting business with Syrian firms blacklisted by Washington and Brussels, according to documents relating to the deals. That puts Venezuela alongside Russia and Iran in an informal bloc of nations working to stymie the West's efforts to topple Mr. Assad and break up his military alliance with Iran, U.S. officials and Syrian activists say..."

14:42 - July 11, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Pandemonium seems to be the order of the day in Egypt, with the Muslim Brotherhood led executive branch now locked in a bitter power struggle with the country's highest judicial authority.
The latest development involves the country's high court overruling Mohammed Morsi's recently issued executive decree 11, which reinstated parliament after the same court three weeks ago ruled to have it dissolved, judging that the elective process had been fraudulent.
"Egypt's high court moved swiftly to block the Islamist-dominated Parliament only hours after the legislature's first meeting in weeks, turning a political row between the Muslim Brotherhood and the military into a constitutional crisis. The Supreme Constitutional Court suspended a decree issued on Sunday by Mohammed Morsi, Egypt's newly inaugurated president..." [source, Matt Bradley, Egypt's High Court Blocks Parliament, Wall Street Journal, http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303567704577518332037249906.html]
The genesis of executive decree 11, took place in a hastily arranged weekend session, according to the Muslim Brotherhood's English website [see, http://www.ikhwanweb.com/article.php?id=30182]. Thus, the Egyptian parliament which was ordered to disband [see, Breaking - Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood Suffers Huge Defeat - Parliament Dissolved, Potential for Military to Maintain Control http://www.pipelinenews.org/2012/jun/16/Breaking-Egypts-Muslim-Brotherhood-Suffers-Huge-Defeat.html] by the high court, was itself declared invalid under a decree by Morsi.
Morsi is a long time member of the Muslim Brotherhood's inner circle.
CAIR Threatens To “Keep up The Pressure” on U. S. Navy Despite Concessions
By BEILA RABINOWITZ and WILLIAM MAYER
18:49 - July 10, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR] a Saudi funded1., Hamas associated2. front group, has succeeded in forcing the U.S. Navy to remove a target image featuring a woman terrorist brandishing a weapon from one of its gunnery ranges.
This action has been taken despite the image's relevance in military training given that women jihadists are frequently employed by by the likes of Hamas, al-Qaeda, the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine and numerous others in a variety of murderous activities including suicide bombing - as referenced in the lead image.
The Navy's senseless and cowardly concession has, rather than ending the dispute, emboldened the Islamists at CAIR.
About the controversy, Nihad Awad, CAIR's long-time National Executive Director said in a statement to US News:
"We welcome the Navy's prompt action to address community concerns and hope this incident serves as a reminder that credible scholars and experts need to be consulted when designing training materials relating to Islam and Muslims for our nation's military personnel..." [source, Muslim Group Turns Up Heat on Navy Over Target Images, http://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/dotmil/2012/07/05/muslim-group-turns-up-heat-on-navy-over-target-images]
Despite the Navy's mea culpa, CAIR - per its usual MO - has become even more unreasonable in its demands while the multiculturalists over at DOD quake in their boots. The subtext of Mr. Awad's statement calls for CAIR to sit as a star chamber, deciding what is and what is not permissible activity at the Department of Defense. Does he propose then, that in the event Israel should decide to level Iran's nuke facilities, that CAIR should have veto power over whether or not that effort is assisted by the U.S. military?
The mind reels.
Morsi Buys Power in Egypt - Payoff to Civil Servants
15:21 - PDT - July 4, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - It hasn't taken the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Morsi long to consolidate power as Egypt's new president. Sources close to the matter have revealed that he recently decided, without apparent authority to, "...implement a 15 percent social allowance increase for government employees and the 10 percent increase for civilian and military pensioners, which he raised to 15 percent the next day, without consulting the finance minister." [source, http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/morsy-didn-t-consult-finance-minister-over-raise-says-sourceMorsy didn't consult finance minister over raise, says source, A Al-Masry Al-Youm, as translated by the Egyptian Independent]
Obama Loses Egypt and Potentially Much of the Middle East
13:30 PDT - July 2, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - A column appearing in today's Washington Times, written by the Center for Security Policy's Frank Gaffney, paints a gloomy picture of the direction which the Middle East, specifically Egypt, has taken as a direct result of President Obama's foreign policy.
"Today, the question for voters in the 2012 election to ponder might be posed as "Who lost Egypt?" To make matters worse, it is likely that the losses won't stop there.
Indeed, before it's over, we may well see nearly all the Middle East fall under the sway of the team President Obama has helped come to power in Cairo - the Muslim Brotherhood, to the grave detriment of the people most immediately affected, of Israel and of our interests, there and here." [source, Who 'Lost' Egypt?]
When Mr. Obama assumed office in 2009 he was given a relatively stable, but obviously troubled Middle East to deal with. However the president immediately started implementing a program which led to the Muslim Brotherhood seizing power in Egypt and rapidly destabilized the entire region.
The lead vehicle in this wholesale assault on previous policy [one of a bipartisan nature, extending well before the G.W. Bush administration] was Mr. Obama's still hard to comprehend Cairo speech, to which we referred in a January 25, 2010 piece The Wake Up Call that Never Comes What made this address even more inexplicable is that it was delivered at Al-Azhar University, thelocus of modern Sunni jihadism. Al-Azhar is a thousand year old institution dedicated to training orthodox Sunni imams and spreading Islam through da'wa and jihad in both of its modes, the "hard" violent form as well as the relatively "softer" technique of cultural subsumation. Given the way events are rapidly developing in the region Mr. Obama's inviting senior Muslim Brotherhood leaders to attend the event - thus providing the creators of Hamas with, the WH Seal of Approval - looms even more ominously.
From the piece:
"Thus the origin of Mr. Obama's Muslim outreach, most forcefully detailed in his June 6, 2009 Cairo speech [see, Remarks of the President at Cairo University] with the below statement, emblematic of this approach.
"More recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims, and a Cold War in which Muslim-majority countries were too often treated as proxies without regard to their own aspirations. Moreover, the sweeping change brought by modernity and globalization led many Muslims to view the West as hostile to the traditions of Islam. Violent extremists have exploited these tensions in a small but potent minority of Muslims."
It must be remembered that the Cairo speech was only part of a grander apologia - offered in a particularly supplicating manner - to atone for [what the president perceives to be] America's past history of oppressive actions."
Though Mr. Obama and his hidebound State Department are in complete denial, the "democracy," which his administration stoked starting with his enthusiastic support of the Tahrir Square demonstrations - and his scuttling of then sitting Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak - was directly responsible for the fraud laden election of the Muslim Brotherhood candidate, Mohammed Morsi, a long-time senior member of the organization.
