Skip to comments.title:Muslims in fed terror probe making donations to Obama
Posted on 08/29/2008 2:30:19 AM PDT by Man50D
Islamic leaders tied by federal investigators to the radical Muslim Brotherhood in America including one under active investigation for alleged terror-financing have recently donated to Sen. Barack Obama's campaign for president, according to Federal Election Commission records reviewed by WND.
Jamal M. Barzinji earlier this year gave Obama $1,000, a gift that records show has not been returned. Other Democratic candidates, including Rep. Jim Moran, have refunded donations from Barzinji since federal agents raided his Virginia home and offices in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.
Obama's top Muslim adviser resigned earlier this month over controversy surrounding his ties to an alleged Muslim Brotherhood front connected to Barzinji, who heads a network of Islamic charities and businesses.
Barzinji remains at the center of an active federal investigation into terrorist financing that involves recently convicted terrorist supporter Sami al-Arian. A grand jury is still hearing the widening case in Northern Virginia.
A federal court affidavit alleges "Barzinji is not only closely associated with PIJ (as evidenced by ties to al-Arian, including documents seized in Tampa), but also with Hamas." The Palestinian Islamic Jihad, or PIJ, and Hamas are two known terrorist groups outlawed by the U.S.
Barzinji in November 2000 was arrested and charged with domestic abuse and resisting arrest, according to Fairfax County Police Department criminal records.
Nancy Luque, a Washington-based lawyer for Barzinji, says her client does not support terrorism and that the government is conducting a witch hunt. Barzinji has not been charged with a crime in the years-long probe.
According to recently declassified FBI documents posted by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Barzinji and another board member of an Islamist think tank in Herndon, Va., were listed among "members and leaders of the IKHWAN."

* Jamal Barzinji : in 1980 a representative of WAMY in Herndon, VA; member of CSIDs Board of Directors; A board member of Alamoudi’s AMC organization & a longtime supporter of al-Arian; also a trustee and officer of the Amana Mutual Funds Trust, a growth and income mutual fund headquartered in Bellingham, Wash linked to Yaqub Mirza, a Pakistani physicist who shares Barzinji’s Herndon [WAMY] office address
* AL TAQWA & WAMY : A major personality on the ground in Virginia is an individual named Jamal Barzinji, whose office in Herndon was a major target of the raids. In 1980, he was listed in local public records as a representative of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), an arm of the Saudi regime with offices in Virginia. WAMY has been deeply involved in providing cover for Wahhabi terrorism. The 2002 entry in the U.S. Business Directory lists the president of the WAMY office in Annandale, Va., as Abdula bin Laden—the terrorist’s younger brother.
Barzinji serves as a trustee and officer of the Amana Mutual Funds Trust, a growth and income mutual fund headquartered in Bellingham, Wash., conveniently near the Canadian border. Amana’s board also includes Yaqub Mirza, a Pakistani physicist who shares Barzinji’s Herndon office address and who is widely described as a financial genius. Another board member and tenant in the Herndon office is Samir Salah. He formerly ran a branch of Al-Taqwa in the Caribbean, heads a financial firm linked to Saar, and directs Dar al-Hijra, a mosque in Falls Church, Va., notable for hardline Wahhabi preaching. Salah is also deeply involved with Taibah International Aid Association, a Virginia charity with a Bosnian branch that is being investigated by authorities in Sarajevo.-————Wahhabis in the Old Dominion: What the federal raids in Northern Virginia uncovered, 4/02 Weekly Standard
I don’t mind telling you this guy scares the stew out of me. It just amazes me how the masses are so blinded by him.
The Islamoterrorist LOVE Socialists.
Just look at Europe. They are conducting an invasion there without firing a single shot or risking a single soldier.
They are undermining the courts and laws of the nations they are invading, They are drainig the healthcare education and criminal justice systems.
WHY? Because Socilism and Socialist bend over backwards to accomodate them
Now you have a Socialist come Communist wannbe running for President of the Unityed States. You DON’T THINK that they are happy about that? The you really need to open your eyes and take a good look around the world....
Problem is......Obama gets away with this because people are either too intimidated to get this out to the masses or else they don’t care if Obama takes terrorist money.
