Obama White House Partners with ISIS-Linked Group

A Boston-based hub of terrorism associated with a top Islamic State propagandist and producer of hostage-beheading videos will receive the red carpet treatment at an anti-terrorism conference at the Obama White House this Wednesday.
The so-called Summit on Countering Violent Extremism comes as President Obama seeks formal authorization from Congress to wage war against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL).
The terrorist-friendly Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), which is a known front for Islamist terrorist groups, operates mosques in and around Boston.
Members of the anti-terrorist community are outraged that officials of ISB will participate in discussions of anti-terrorism best practices on Feb. 18.
In a recent Washington Times op-ed, Charles Jacobs and Ilya Feoktistov of Americans For Peace and Tolerance, warned that ISB “and its political arm, the Muslim American Society, seen as the go-to groups for civic and law enforcement partnerships, have links to many extremists who are either in jail, in flight from federal authorities, or have been killed during terrorist attacks.” The group also ran a full-page ad about ISB’s participation in the summit in the Washington Times under the headline, “Why is Boston a Hub For ‘VIOLENT EXTREMISM?'”
Social media guru Ahmad Abousamra, who is now the chief propagandist for the Islamic State, used to regularly worship at ISB’s Cambridge mosque. His father was a member of the board of directors of ISB. The FBI suspects Abousamra is in charge of Islamic State’s slick English-language propaganda campaign that produces videos of beheadings and various atrocities. The campaign has succeeded in recruiting at least 300 American jihadists and thousands of volunteers from other Western nations.
Long before the Islamic State arrived on the world scene, the Islamic Society of Boston had already long been a hotbed of terrorist activity, according to DiscoverTheNetworks.
ISB was founded by Hamas and Hezbollah supporter Abdurahman Alamoudi, who in 2004 was sentenced to 23 years in prison on terrorism-related charges. ISB’s Cambridge mosque is run by the Muslim American Society, which federal prosecutors say is a front for the Muslim Brotherhood. Saudi benefactors helped to fund a sister mosque, the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC), in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood.
Boston marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev worshiped at ISB’s Cambridge mosque, as did Tarek Mehanna. Mehanna received terrorist training in Yemen and intended to use automatic weapons to inflict mass casualties in a suburban shopping mall near Boston. In 2012 Mahenna received a 17-year prison term for conspiring to aid al-Qaeda. Oussama Ziade, a benefactor of the Boston mosque, was indicted in 2009 for accepting money from al-Qaeda fundraiser Yassin Kadi.
Jacobs and Feoktistov throw some light on other ISB mosque congregants.
Yusuf Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, was a founding trustee of the ISB. He has urged the elimination of Jews and the murder of homosexuals. An INTERPOL arrest warrant is pending. Aafia Siddiqui, also known as “Lady al Qaeda,” who is serving 86 years in prison for attempted murder after she opened fire on FBI agents, also attended an ISB mosque.
Hafiz Masood, a Muslim American Society religious leader deported for immigration offenses, reportedly raised funds and recruited members in Boston for his brother’s terrorist group, which was responsible the massacre in Mumbai, India. ISB congregant Rezwan Ferdaus, is now serving a 17-year prison term after plotting to fly remote-controlled airplane bombs into the U.S. Capitol.
ISB Iman Abdullah Faaruuq gave the Massachusetts attorney general’s office a $50,000 grant in 2010 for Muslim “sensitivity training” for the police.
“Under the program’s guidelines, law enforcement officers are barred from studying radical Islamist ideology as a motive for the violent extremism that the president’s program is supposed to counter,” Jacobs and Feoktistov note. “Imam Faaruuq was later found on tape urging Boston Muslims to ‘pick up the gun and the sword to defend Aafia ‘Lady al Qaeda’ Siddiqui,’ who was then on trial.”
The Obama White House announced the upcoming summit last month. It will “highlight domestic and international efforts to prevent violent extremists and their supporters from radicalizing, recruiting, or inspiring individuals or groups in the United States and abroad to commit acts of violence, efforts made even more imperative in light of recent, tragic attacks in Ottawa, Sydney, and Paris.”
The summit is supposed to build on the strategy the White House released in August 2011, “Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States,” which it called the first national strategy to prevent violent extremism domestically. The U.S. is at war only with al-Qaeda and not Islamism, according to the paper.
The politically correct, largely content-free document is essentially useless, reducing all terrorist acts in the U.S. to “violent extremism.” Even those organizations it singles out — “neo-Nazis and anti-Semitic hate groups” — it refuses to describe properly, calling them merely “misguided groups.” Normal Americans would be more likely to opt for the descriptor evil but such a word will never escape the lips of the left-wing relativists of the Obama administration.
Partnering with America’s Islamic enemies is nothing new for the Obama administration. From the beginning President Obama’s foreign policy has been clearing the way for the rise of the Islamic Caliphate throughout North Africa and the Middle East.
Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood regime of Mohamed Morsi in Egypt and overthrew Muammar Qaddafi in Libya which paved the way for the Islamist takeover of that country. Obama refused to support a popular uprising against the theocratic totalitarians of Iran and allowed the opposition to be crushed by the mullahs.
Obama consistently makes excuses for Muslim atrocities as the nation was reminded in his recent National Prayer Breakfast speech in which he had to reach back a millennium to the Christian Crusades of medieval times in order to bash Western civilization.
Lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ,” Obama said. “In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ. So this is not unique to one group or one religion.
Obama supports Islamist movements all over the world. By inviting Islamist groups like ISB to the White House he’s only being consistent.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
But but but ...Obama is a Christian. He would never side with the enemy.
Just par for the course for this bunch
If he’s a non-Muslim Christian, then I’m the Pope. Since when has treason be ignored so long?

Students demanding DePaul University divest from Israel are calling their campaign a feminist issue and a queer issue.
On Jan., 21, Feminist Front, a student group at the Catholic university, posted a video in which members claimed the divestment movement is a feminist issue because Israeli methods of occupation historically target women, through violence, kidnapping, and rape.
The same video alleged that Israeli forces target queer folks with blackmail.
Of course he has.
It is long past time that someone stepped up and introduced a bill of impeachment.
The tragedy is that it was not a usurpation — the stupid US citizenry voted him in. That’s the real tragedy, which will still be major problem long after O is gone to the golf courses of Hawaii.
Obama is the only Christian Muslim Terrorist we have.....send him to the Smithsonian
Those “students” need a field trip
Have just the bus for them.
Our entire political and judicial establishment ignored the fact that he was not eligible. That is a usurpation.
You have a point there. However, that fact has not been proved. If his father was the US communist Frank Davis, then he was Natural-Born. The next question: was he a US citizen at the time of the election? Not clear, though there are plenty of suspicions.
Wack jobs like that would be uppermost on the list of the head cutters first to be chopped.
I hope I live long enough for the truth to come out. FMD is likelier than the Kenyan. He does have an uncanny resemblemce to Malcolm X.
Agree with you, but its not going to happen. The weak and feckless Republican led congress is trying to run out the clock, hoping he’ll be gone in two years. They don’t want to deal with the whole impeachment thing.
But by avoiding their responsibilities they are enabling a future president to do similar things. The bar has been permanently lowered as a result. If Hillary gets elected, she will take full advantage of her unchecked power.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! OBAMA IS A TRAITOR AND MUST BE REMOVED.
Email sent to my congressman in Michigan:
This morning I have read that, again, Obama plans to meet this week with a group of Muslims who have ties to ISIS (http://www.frontpagemag.com/2015/matthew-vadum/obama-white-house-partners-with-isis-linked-group/). I speak for many who are totally disgusted and amazed that there are so many in Washington who have the authority to IMPEACH Obama, yet do NOTHING. It is so frustrating to watch the news and see several government officials scratching their heads and wondering why Obama reacts with such indifference and feigned concern when dealing with ISIS and our national security. The answer is so obvious. It’s beyond negligence and incompetence. It’s beyond having too many issues on his plate to deal with. It’s beyond time for his impeachment, and removal from office. I never thought I would live to see a traitor residing in the White House. If you and your colleagues allow this to continue, are you prepared to deal with the consequences?
