Posted on 03/16/2017 8:14:56 PM PDT by Texas Fossil
The main plaintiff in the Hawaii case blocking President Trumps revised temporary travel ban is an imam with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
The irony is hard to miss: Trump has talked about declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, and now it is a Brotherhood-backed imam who is playing a key role in blocking his executive order on immigration.
Imam Ismail Elshikh, 39, leads the largest mosque in Hawaii and claims he is suffering irreparable harm from the presidents executive order, which places a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from six countries.

I think I smell ozone. Is there about to be a lightening strike?
Another reason to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. Once they are on the official terror list for the USA it will be a lot more feasible to fight back against scumbags like this guy. Kick them all the hell out of our country!! (after jailing or executing all the individuals who have any demonstrable ties to terror activities)
How is the ol’ Mosque/Armory bidness doin’ these daze?
Insane Judicial Ruling.
They said years ago that they’d use our laws against us.
And yet here we sit like dodo birds thanks to those who listen to the left - who must have a death wish.
I guess it depends on where you are. It is a standard practice in the Middle East?
Article and comments
John Guandolo, a former FBI counter-terrorism specialist and now private consultant to law enforcement at Understanding the Threat, said all mosques under the Muslim Association of moniker are typically affiliated with the Brotherhood.
But the clincher in this case is that the mosque property is traced to NAIT, confirming it is a Muslim Brotherhood organization, Guandolo told WND in an email.
Thanks, Texas Fossil
Yes. It is totally lawless.
Let remind you we saw it coming.

Glad you approved.
“How can we do jihad if we can’t get into the country?”
Pretty simple isn’t it?
“claims he is suffering ‘irreparable harm’”
I hope so. He should be suffering, irreparable, catastrophic, extremely painful, harm.
He might feel like he is hurting in a while.
I think I smell Ozone. Lighting strike about to happen?
The Constitution IS NOW a suicide pact?
It is discomforting and puzzling that Trump hasn’t played the national security card and told the court it has no jurisdiction.
Should be on top of Drudge if true.
I wonder what mosque Obama visits when he’s in Hawaii.
Wherever the Terrorists attend (hide).
Just sent it to him. We shall see if he picks it up.
Sometimes he does. Most not.
More on this mosque at: Brookings: Muslims expel reformer from Manoa mosque, claim Arabs discovered Hawaii: "Hawaii has a small Muslim community of between 3,000 and 4,000, which I was asked to address after Friday prayers at the main mosque. Hakim Ouansafi, the Arab head of the mosque committee, and the president of the Muslim Association of Hawaii, welcomed us but warned us not to be in touch with Saleem Ahmed, someone we were anxious to meet. Hakim said irately that Saleem reputedly gave interviews in the media and talked to interfaith communities claiming to represent Islam, which he did not. Indeed, according to Hakim, Saleem was not even a true Muslim."
The whole thing gives me a gray headache.
The Hawaii Public Housing Authority Board of Directors voted unanimously Thursday morning to appoint Muslim Association of Hawaii President Hakim Ouansafi as HPHA Executive Director. According to information presented to the Board, Ouansafis appointment has already received approval from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development which is required under conditions of a 2002 Corrective Action Order giving HUD oversight of the troubled agency. Ouansafis appointment also received the support of Gov Neil Abercrombies Director of Human Services Pat McManaman who told the Board that Ouansafis application really stood out.
According to the Hawaii Islamic Information Office, Ouansafis Manoa Mosque is backed by Prince Abdulaziz Bin Fahad Al-Faisal of Saudi Arabia. Ouansafi, who acknowledges that foreign money ... come(s) with strings attached, has publicly mooted plans to build a larger mosque in downtown Honolulu.
Paid $88,000 per year, the HPHA manages Hawaiis 6,000 public housing units scattered throughout 80-plus sites statewide. HPHA is in the midst of a $135M public-private renovation of the Towers at Kuhio Park, Hawaiis largest public housing project. As has been the case with many agency heads since Governor Neil Abercrombie took office, the previous Executive Director, Denise Wise, resigned October 12 for personal reasons after about one-and-one-half years at the helm.
Ouansafi is best known as the progenitor of Hawaii Islam Day. By misrepresenting the foundation date of his own religion, Ouansafi conned the 2009 Hawaii Legislature into passing a resolution designating September 24, 2009 as Islam Day in Hawaii. He did this by falsely claiming a Julian date in the year 622 was actually a Gregorian date. September 24, 2009 just happens to be September 11, 2009 in the old Julian Calendar.
Ouansafi was nailed for falsely claiming to represent the Federal Law Enforcement Foundation as part of a promotional event for the Muslim Association of Hawaii in March, 2011. The fake FLEF event came after the October 2010 arrest of jihadi wannabe Abdel Hameed Shehadeh who had been attending Ouansafis Manoa Mosque in between failed efforts to enter Pakistan and join the Taliban. After the arrest of Shehadeh, Ouansafi was quick to go to the media and trumpet his secret role in the investigationeffectively warning away any other violent jihadis. Akamai observers noted that Shehadeh came to Hawaii with an open and public FBI tail one source described as big enough to make a peacock blush thus giving Ouansafi little choice but to cooperate.
In a 2010 book published by The Brookings Institution, author Akbar S. Ahmed interviewed Ouansafi. After a visit to Ouansafis Mosque, Ahmed describes how Ouansafi expelled a follower of Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi for diluting our religion. Ouansafi bizarrely claimed to Ahmed that it was Arabs, not Polynesians who first discovered Hawaiiand that the words Hawaii and Honolulu are both Arabic names, not Hawaiian. Ouansafi also told Ahmed that Hakim was Hawaiian for wise leaderan assertion quickly debunked by a search through Pukui and Elberts Hawaiian Dictionary. Interestingly, the Hawaiian term haku epa does mean to lie or deceive and haki wale refers to a weak leader, easily broken.
Ouansafi, as President of the Muslim Association of Hawaii, has questionable adherence to the First Amendmentwhich should raise questions about his willingness to abide by the standards of transparency demanded of HPHA under State and Federal law. As Islamists organized rioting over cartoons of Mohammad published by a Danish newspaper, Ouansafis Muslim Association of Hawaii Islamic Information Office website February 20, 2006 posted a statement by "Muslim Religious Leaders." The statement didnt denounce the deadly riots, instead it attacked free speech, vainly proclaiming "The events in Denmark concerning the Messenger of God represent an entirely unacceptable crime of aggression that has violated the highest sanctities of the Muslim people."
A 2009 Hawai`i Free Press investigation into the national and international resources working with Ouansafis MAH is titled: On the trail to Hawaii Islam Day: Saudi money, Libyan assassins, Palestinian Jihad, London bombers, Malaysian sodomy, and laughing Islamists.
Mohammad cartoons were not the only incidence of the "moderate" MAH attacking free speech. When Hawai`i Free Press in September, 2007 exposed allegations of "fraud" in relation to plans to build a mosque in a Kona residential subdivision, MAH-connected Muslims threatened to sue. They teamed up with the terror-connected Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) but we stood our ground, the article is still up, and no lawsuit has been filed. The lesson is clear: Not only free speech, but even Hawaii County zoning ordinances and the covenants of Big Island community associations are both infinitely superior to Islamic law.
Here, too, is a lesson for anybody who wishes to learn it. The absence of concessions shows Muslims there is no desire to submit to Islam. They go elsewhere on their life-long quest for submission.
CAIR is just the tip of the iceberg. The Hawaii MAH-IIO webmaster Abdul Rashid Abdullah is Deputy Director of American Muslims Armed Forces and Veteran Affairs Councilan organization responsible for recruitment and training of the Muslim Chaplains in the US Armed Forces. One of the tiny groups most active members is former Muslim chaplain Army Captain James "Yousef" Yee who was charged with espionage at Guantanamothough charges were later dropped for national security reasons. The group's co-founder, Abdurahman Alamoudi, was busted in Britain in 2003 with a suitcase full of money from Libya. Alamoudi, a former associate of Presidents Clinton and Bush is now serving a 23-year sentence for his involvement in a Libyan-backed effort to assassinate the Saudi Crown Prince, Abdullah.
To this day King Abdullah and Libyan dictator Muammar Gadaffi cannot sit in the same room without cursing each other. Hawaii is an unlikely flashpoint in THAT "debate".
Brisbane-Australia-based Dr Mohammed Abdalla, came to Hawaii to deliver numerous lectures at MAH for the just-ended month of Ramadan, 2009. He has been a favorite each Ramadan for several years at the MAH's Saudi-funded Manoa mosque. Abdalla tells the Star-Bulletin October 7, 2006 he has been on "a continuous speaking circuit in Australia since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks."
And Barry visited Hawaii just before...
JUST ONE TIME Id like to see The President ACTUALLY recognize that this Judge has no jurisdiction; that the plaintiff had no standing, that the resulting ruling is null and void legal vaporware, essentially CALL THE JUDGE OUT ON IT, RAM IT BACK UP HIS ASS, and move forward no matter what.http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3535128/posts?page=39#39
The Mafia loves/loved America because of its freedoms and laws. They took/take advantage of these great foundations because in too many cases protection of the wrong people has gone to the extreme.
Muzzies know this and are using it to their advantage. Laughing at the dumb white folk who love them every step of the way.
Instead of travel ban on Extreme vetting which the left says is against the Muslim religion. Just ban everyone from those 7 countries then he can’t be accused of anti Muslim..
Nice work. Looks like the communists weren’t the only ones working to subvert Hawaii. Move over frank Marshall Davis, you’ve got company.
“JUST ONE TIME Id like to see The President ACTUALLY recognize that this Judge has no jurisdiction; that the plaintiff had no standing, that the resulting ruling is null and void legal vaporware, essentially CALL THE JUDGE OUT ON IT, RAM IT BACK UP HIS ASS, and move forward no matter what.....”
Baffling isn’t it?... President Trump even knows he has the authority to do so....And let’s an obvious political hack stop him?.....A step down for the fighter who took the White house against all the odds.....Conceding to the first POS judge was a mistake, this time it’s the twilight zone.....
How DARE this little pr*ck of a judge endanger the American people on behalf of an ‘offended’ piece of moslem dung?
Most Muslims are Caucasian, if not white. Islam is a religion, not a race.
I saw a video taken inside a large London mosque, where the women were being taught about how infidels must die and homosexuals must be thrown from mountainsides, bridges, and tall buildings. Their heads are filled with murderous hatred in the guise of religious education. Presumably the men are getting the same kind of indoctrination, but men and women are separated in the mosque, and the person recording the video is a woman.
I wonder if this imam runs his mosque the same way?
I’m sure they are.
I think you just did.
It is true, and that is understatement.
Yes, they think Christians are all weak. They are wrong.
Lets see how Trump handles it.
Yes, not spontaneous event.
Well, since this imam claims to be suffering ‘irreparable harm’, I think he needs to be ‘accommodated’.
Trump has talked about declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, and now it is a Brotherhood-backed imam who is playing a key role in blocking his executive order on immigration. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Trump should declare the MB a terrorist organization. In fact it is. We need to get the supporting evidence and nail them.
Wow great stuff, good post, thanks.Gotta wonder how the local Hawaiians embrace the mad muzzies and a mosque on every corner. Hard to imagine they are into that crap.
As we see 99% of the time, a writer uses “irony” when he means “coincidence”.
It's just that simple.
When they start "The Purge" I'm all in.
Keep your powder dry. And your weapons cleaned and oiled.
The Muslim Brotherhood members who started the Muslim Student Association in America also launched the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) in 1971. The NAIT now holds title to hundreds of U.S. mosques and manages bank accounts for Muslim entities always in accordance with Islamic banking principles. And it was through the NAIT that the first Muslim financial trust was created. Today, its tentacles extend everywhere in the Muslim community.
“Once they (Muslim Brotherhood) are on the official terror list for the USA it will be a lot more feasible to fight back against scumbags like this guy”...............
WHY has trump delayed making such a call?
