Incredible. Terror-tied imams can usurp our President and our national security apparatus.
The Muslim Brotherhood is dedicated in its own words, according to a captured internal document, to a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Gods religion is made victorious over all other religions. Thats from An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America, by Mohamed Akram, May 19, 1991. (source: Robert Spencer)
Plaintiff behind Trump travel ban runs Muslim Brotherhood mosque, by Leo Hohmann, WND, March 17, 2017:
Imam Ismail Elshikh, a native of Egypt, leads a Muslim Brotherhood-tied mosque in Honolulu, Hawaii, and claims he is suffering irreparable harm by President Trumps temporary travel ban.
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.
One of those six countries is Syria. Elshikhs mother in law is Syrian and would not be able to visit her family in Hawaii for 90 days if Trumps ban were allowed to go into effect.
Hawaiis Obama-appointed federal judge, Derrick Watson, made sure the ban did not go into effect, striking it down Wednesday while buying Hawaiis claim that it amounts to a Muslim ban. The states attorney general, along with co-plaintiff Elshikh, claims the ban would irreparably harm the states tourism industry and its Muslim families.
According to the lawsuit:
Plaintiffs allege that the Executive Order subjects portions of the States population, including Dr. Elshikh and his family, to discrimination in violation of both the Constitution and the INA, denying them their right, among other things, to associate with family members overseas on the basis of their religion and national origin. The State purports that the Executive Order has injured its institutions, economy, and sovereign interest in maintaining the separation between church and state.
The vast majority of Hawaiis roughly 5,000 Muslims attend Elshikhs mosque, the Muslim Association of Hawaii, which is located in a residential area of Manoa, Honolulu. The mosque, despite its ties to what many believe is an extremist and subversive organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, may now hold the key to whether the Trump travel ban passes muster in the federal court system.
Elshikh was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt, the home base of the Muslim Brotherhood, whose stated goal is to spread Shariah law throughout the world.
Elshikh is living in the U.S. on a green card, which gives him permanent legal status.
The proof that his mosque is affiliated with the Brotherhood is found in the court records for Honolulu County, which lists the deed holder as the North American Islamic Trust.
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 .
Can anyone explain how the US Circuit Court of Appeals works? Who decides which of the courts is chosen for an appeal and how that decision is made? Notice that President Trump is making his appeal through the 4th circuit whereas all of the travel bans have come down from the 9th circuit courts. Thanks.
Every day I thank God I am not a Muslim!
The Muslim Association of Hawaii was originally set up by the Saudis.
Liberals have done their best to turn the US Constitution into a suicide pact.
They believe constitutional protections of “rights” apply to every organization and person on earth except American citizens.
It’s a good thing that the government and judicial system wasn’t this perverted by anti-Americanism and just plain outright stupidity back in 1941.
Imagine if the Japanese came back the day after the Pearl Harbor attack and got some leftist judge to put a restraining order on retaliatory attacks because it could interfere with gtourism and collee enrollment of foreigners from the Far East.
Or a Japanese judge put a halt to the bombing of Japan and Japanese occupied territories because of collateral damage to non-combatants.
There is no reason whatsoever why we of this age should tolerate Islam inflicting itself on our posterity for another fifteen hundred years.
The judiciary isn’t satisfied with rewriting law, making law, and imposing its social justice will on society. Now, under the color of the supreme law, it usurps exec branch powers. This judicial tyranny will accelerate until congress puts federal courts back in their constitutional box, and that cannot happen as long as the senate is popularly elected.
Repeal the 17th. Article V.
“”One of those six countries is Syria. Elshikhs mother in law is Syrian and would not be able to visit her family in Hawaii for 90 days if Trumps ban were allowed to go into effect””
It really is amazing how much “Middle East” citizens travel the world. I don’t know anyone born in this country who travels as much for pure pleasure as they do. The women wear lots of GOLD jewelry and if you compliment them on it, they launch into where each piece came from - none from the U. S., or their own country but from Paris, London, Tokyo etc. Your eyes glaze over while they are listing places they’ve traveled.
Yes. Just imagine that! The Muslim threat is just as difficult as a Japanese threat was 70+ years ago. And, to this day, many Americans do not know and could care less that the Japanese made POWs out of every woman, child and man they could in the Far East including the Philippines when they took over.
Now we have imams like kamikazi pilots zeroing in on susceptible communities and setting up Muslim laws and protections and anti American aggressions to be seen by all sooner or later. And this country, the USA, is allowing this under the guise of American freedoms and the various Amendments in the Bill of Rights. Foreigners have no rights except to be polite, get their business done without causing issues and then they must go home. That is the way our laws are set up. Period.
So the guy who has this suit is the leader of an Islamic Terror Cell?
Has he been arrested and the mosque cleared of munitions?
