Posted on 06/02/2013 12:57:15 PM PDT by bronxville
An Egyptian magazine claims that six American Islamist activists who work with the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood operatives who enjoy strong influence over U.S. policy.
The Dec. 22 story published in Egypt's Rose El-Youssef magazine (read an IPT translation here) suggests the six turned the White House "from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood."
The story is largely unsourced, but its publication is considered significant in raising the issue to Egyptian readers.
The six named people include: Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.
Alikhan is a founder of the World Islamic Organization, which the magazine identifies as a Brotherhood "subsidiary." It suggests that Alikhan was responsible for the "file of Islamic states" in the White House and that he provides the direct link between the Obama administration and the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011.
Elibiary, who has endorsed the ideas of radical Muslim Brotherhood luminary Sayyid Qutb, may have leaked secret materials contained in Department of Homeland Security databases, according to the magazine. He, however, denies having any connection with the Brotherhood.
Elibiary also played a role in defining the Obama administration's counterterrorism strategy, and the magazine asserts that Elibiary wrote the speech Obama gave when he told former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to leave power but offers no source or evidence for the claim.
According to Rose El-Youssef, Rashad Hussain maintained close ties with people and groups that it says comprise the Muslim Brotherhood network in America. This includes his participation in the June 2002 annual conference of the American Muslim Council, formerly headed by convicted terrorist financier Abdurahman Alamoudi.
He also participated in the organizing committee of the Critical Islamic Reflection along with important figures of the American Muslim Brotherhood such as Jamal Barzinji, Hisham al-Talib and Yaqub Mirza.
Regarding al-Marayati, who has been among the most influential Muslim American leaders in recent years, the magazine draws connections between MPAC in the international Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure.
Magid heads ISNA, which was founded by Brotherhood members, was appointed by Obama in 2011 as an adviser to the Department of Homeland Security. The magazine says that has also given speeches and conferences on American Middle East policy at the State Department and offered advice to the FBI.
Rose El-Youssef says Patel maintains a close relationship with Hani Ramadan, the grandson of Brotherhood founder Hasan al-Banna, and is a member of the Muslim Students Association, which it identifies as "a large Brotherhood organization."
The other grandson, brother of Hani, the equally lethal Tariq Ramadan was banned from this country by the Bush Adm, but Valerie- Obama-Hillary gave him permission to enter. And let's not forget Wahid Hamid, Obama's Occidental College roomie whose on the Business Defense Board.
I had this thread all ready to go when I happened to google Tariq'a name and came across this thread on the same topic. I decided to repost it anyway as it's an important piece of info didn't get a lot of publicity other than on atlasshrugs: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3010210/posts
I’m just shocked I tell ya! Shocked!!!
The MB is all through our government including the highest levels of the GOP.
As if Hideki Tojo and Heinrich Himmler were top advisors to the War Department in 1941.
Infiltrates??? I thought the Obama Administration was a subsidiary of the MB?
I am wondering which has been the worse infiltration. Was it the FDR administrtion with communists, or the Barry Dunham Regime with Islamists and communists?
Eh, they left out Huma Abadin (sp?) unfortunate wife of Anthony Weiner, right-hand woman to Hillary Clinton, and a person of long lineage in th Muslim Brotherhood.
Them being jihadis they probably didn’t mention her because she is female.
Is that the definition of opening the door to them, begging them to come in, opening up our Treasury to them, shielding them from prosecution for their crimes and allowing them to destroy our Constitution?
And the gutless old party won’t do a darn thing about it.
Is it infiltrating if they were invited?
Fred, I think they’re both equally totalitarian in their dogma with no regard for human life.
Yes, obviously an intentional “infiltrate” otherwise why permit the likes of Tariq Ramadan and his brother, grandsons of the founder of the MB, into the country let alone be a part of the adm.
And the sheep elected this POS again!
“Why would they? Most conservatives don’t have the moral courage to point a finger at Grover Al Norquist and his muslim brotherhood ties.”
This bears repeating!!!
No worries. It’s only a ‘lesser evil’....
Norquist was the first name I thought of...
“And the gutless old party wont do a darn thing about it.”
The last President from the gutless old party called Islam “the religion of peace” within days of the 9/11 attacks, was photographed walking around holding hands with a Saudi prince, flew dozens of Saudi’s out of the US immediately after 9/11 at a time US airspace was closed to American citizens, failed to cut off the funding by Saudi Arabia of terrorism around the world and mosque building inside the USA, issued tens of thousands of visas to Muslim students to study on US campuses after 9/11, and wasted trillions of taxpayer money trying to nation build Iraq and Afghanistan into western style democracies despite both countries having cultures with strong anti western and anti democratic biases. Given this history it is hard to expect today’s GOP leaders to be concerned.
Pretty bad when you have to get your news from other countries. Seems to be the norm nowadays with the LSM covering all bases for their chosen one. Lately I’ve been seeing all kinds of news articles about events that are occuring over here that would have put the 0 adminstration in a horrible light but weren’t reported by our own news media
