Skip to comments.Obama Administration Stacking the Deck with Islamists
Posted on 05/02/2009 12:21:12 PM PDT by nuconvert
As we try to understand where the Obama administration will fall with regards to the global threat of political Islam, the first few months have provided a number of hints, not least of which was the tenor of the recent visit to Turkey. It was painfully obvious after witnessing the length to which the Obama team went to avoid any substantive discussion on political Islam and the threat it poses to human rights abroad and domestically. Domestically, in the weeks preceding his trip, Islamists inside the Beltway began to more openly play their cards to what they obviously perceive to be a friendly administration. Groups like the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association (CMSA) are trying to establish themselves in a position of influence inside the White House, the House, and the Senate.
It's the Ideology!
First just review some of the activities and commentary of Beltway Islamists since the transition and the Inauguration. On January 8th, the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association sent out an email announcing that they would be hosting an inaugural gala titled, "Muslim Inauguration Gala". Guests included Congressman Keith Ellison, (D-MN), Cong. Andre Carson (D-IN), "Representatives of the Obama Administration", Rev. Walter Fauntroy (DC-Delegate), Zaid Shakir and Hamza Yusef (of the Zaytuna Institute), Fmr. Capt. James Yee, Senegalese President Abduolaye Wade, CAIR Michigan Director, Dawud Walid, and Johari Abdul-Malik of the Muslim Alliance of North America. This list reads like a Who's Who of leading Islamists in the United States, all of whom share the ideological framework of political Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood. One need not look far to see the types of ideas shared by these Muslims. For example, Mr. Johari Abdul-Malik spoke just last year at a July 2008 London conference of the "Radical Middle Way". This Radical Middle Way, sadly British government supported, is an ideological outgrowth of the ideas of Sheikh Yusef Qaradawi, spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. Abdul-Malik stated the following about the Obama campaign and Islamist activism in a speech entitled "Can Muslims Trust Obama?"
Now Barak Obama has been able to identify himself as both black and white. When he's in Chicago he's black, when he's in Kansas he's white, and when he's in Hawaii he's Hawaiian [audience laugh]. He actually is Hawaiian because he was born there "
"In the place that we live now the strategy for Muslim Americans now, is to place the priority of regime change in Washington. Because the White House was putting out this message that we need regime change in Iraq, we need democracy and freedom in Iran. Malcolm said 'when they told me to go out and find the enemy I don't have to go as far as Vietnam to find that enemy, I can find the enemy right here. So if we're willing to fight for freedom there, then we ought to be able to fight for freedom here.' So in America, we're looking for regime change in Washington. And the only regime change that we can look forward to in the near future is to get the Democrats in the White House and put the Republicans, as Malcolm would say, 'in the dog house' ."

Washington DC is owned by the Saudis. This is not good.
How is this possible?
put the Republicans, as Malcolm would say, ‘in the dog house’ .”
Warning! This dog will BITE!
You know, the worst thing you can do
with a dog is chain it up.
It defines the dog’s territory.
MOre people get bitten by dogs on chains than otherwise.
The socialist lackeys haven’t finished chaining up the
constitutionalists yet but their time to be bit is coming.
Obama needs dishonest men with a greed for power. Anyone honest would not follow his plan to destroy America.
Well, that's it exactly. If Americans weren't so willing to hand over every Constitutional freedom they have in return for a promise of financial security, Obama would never have made it out of Chicago.
Bush was owned by the Saudis, too. 0, however, can afford to flout his islamic ties.
>>>I know plenty of nice guys who are also Moslems. Obama seems to know only nasty guys.
How is this possible?>>>
There were plenty of nice Germans in 1936, too. There were many nice Russians during the Stalin purges. There were many nice Chinese during the bloody reign of Mao Zedong. There were nice Japanese during the Rape of Nanking. There were nice Spaniards during the Inquistion. There were nice Romans as the bodies of Christians piled up in the Coliseum.
You’re confusing culture with individuals. There are nice people everywhere, just as there are evil people. There are cultures and beliefs that have spread brotherhood and joy in this world, and there are cultures and beliefs whose histories are one long expression of bloodshed.
The personalities of the individuals in those cultures and beliefs that cause pain and suffering on this Earth aren’t important. What’s important is what that culture and belief brings to humanity.
Doesn't it logically follow that he runs with criminals and terrorists?
