Bee's Note: Obama's ties to extremist Islamic groups is not "news", nor shocking to anyone following his administration these past 4 years. What is shocking is the total silence from both the House and Senate. Nixon was involved with far less and we all know if he had not been given the opportunity to "resign", Impeachment proceedings were the order of the day. ... So, how are those "leaks" from the WH coming along?! November elections will take place before anything is done to silence the big mouths in Washington.
MOONBATTERY -June 10, 2012
What did anyone really expect when the Establishment Left installed in the White House a fifth columnist clearly more sympathetic to Islam than to the USA if not this:
President Barack Obama’s deputies are holding “hundreds” of closed-door meetings with a jihad-linked lobbying group that is widely derided by critics as a U.S. arm of the theocratic Muslim Brotherhood.The admission of meetings with the Council on American-Islamic Relations came from George Selim, the White House’s new director for community partnerships, which was formed in January to ensure cooperation by law enforcement and social service agencies with Muslim identity groups in the United States.
Congress doesn’t think much of the Obama Regime’s partnership.
“The [appropriations] committee understands that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has an existing policy prohibiting its employees from engaging in any formal non-investigative cooperation with CAIR [and] the committee encourages the attorney general to adopt a similar policy for all department officials,” said the committee report accompanying the 2013 Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill, passed in mid-May by the House. …CAIR is especially controversial because of its many links to the theocratic Muslim Brotherhood, whose political wing is set to dominate Egyptian politics since the 2011 departure of Egyptian strongman Hosni Mubarak.
Uncoincidentally, the Muslim Brotherhood was put in this position after Obama pulled the rug out from under our ally Mubarak, much as his predecessor Jimmy Carter helped create the menace in Iran by betraying the Shah.
Jihad Watch lists a few more reasons CAIR is controversial:
Hamas-linked CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. Its California chapter distributed posters telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI.
Speaking of Hamas, its front group CAIR, and their friends in DC:
Members of the House Judiciary Committee on oversight on Thursday called on U.S. Attorney General to provide documents and evidence relating to the landmark Holy Land Foundation trial — the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history.The committee made a nearly identical request more than a year ago, however, the documents were never made available by Holder or his department, lawmakers say.Following court proceedings, the Holy Land Foundation was found guilty of providing millions of dollars in funding to Hamas and other Islamic terrorist organizations in 2008. Named as “unindicted co-conspirators” in the trial were the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Both have documented ties to the radical Muslim Brotherhood… which then have ties to the Obama administration…
Our enemy’s friend is our enemy. Appallingly, this applies to the Executive Branch of our own government. Even more appallingly, it may take another 9/11 before people understand why this situation is unacceptable.
Obama and Hamas ought to merge logos.
