While past Presidents have compromised American values at similar Iftar dinners, Barack Hussein Obama outpaces them all. He has kicked up the art of groveling to the Muslim community into the stratosphere.
What a shocker.
Oftentimes, even the Jerusalem Post tries to sidestep certain thorny issues, particularly when it involves Washington. Thus, they aver to Reuters as their ‘go to’ source for reportage.
So, instead of tackling Huma Abedin’s nexus to The Muslim Mafia head on – shame on you, J Post – the editors veered into PC mode.
‘Obama Lauds Clinton Aide Accused of Islamist Ties’ is a bastardized form of journalism, even to the point of hinting at Huma’s welled up eyes, hoping to evince sympathy for the poor, misunderstood dear.
A real tear-jerker.
“US President Barack Obama on Friday called Huma Abedin, a top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, an “American patriot” after a group of Republican lawmakers accused her of having ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist political organization.”
“She has been nothing less than extraordinary in representing our country and the democratic values that we hold dear,” Obama said at a White House Iftar dinner celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.”
“The American people owe her a debt of gratitude because Huma is an American patriot and an example of what we need in this country — more public servants with her sense of decency, her grace and her generosity of spirit.”
“In June, Representative Michele Bachmann along with four other Republican lawmakers questioned Abedin’s security clearance in a letter to the State Department’s inspector general. They suggested members of her family had connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, which the writers said may be seeking access to high levels of the US government.”
“If my family members were associated with Hamas, a terrorist organization, that alone could be sufficient to disqualify me from getting a security clearance,” Bachmann said on conservative host Glenn Beck’s talk show.”
“Abedin, a Muslim, was seated on Obama’s right at the dinner and appeared visibly moved as the president spoke to a room full of religious leaders, elected officials and diplomats.”
“Senior Republicans in Congress, including House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner and former presidential candidate John McCain, have rallied to Abedin’s defense in recent weeks.”
“Greater participation of female athletes at the Olympics was another focus of Friday’s dinner. Obama noted that for the first time in Olympic history each team included a woman.”
“One of the reasons is that every team from a Muslim-majority country now includes women as well,” he said.
“Since taking office, Obama has focused on strengthening ties with the Muslim world. At a speech in Cairo in 2009 he called for “a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world” based on “mutual interest and mutual respect.”
“Friday’s dinner takes place amid a time of seminal change in the Middle East – home to over 300 million of the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims. Over the past year, revolutions in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya have felled decades of authoritarian rule, tensions with Iran continue to escalate and a bloody 17-month uprising in Syria shows no signs of abating.”
On the other hand, if one wants a true rendition re the ‘who’s who’ (dining) terror list at the White House, plus, did or didn’t Thomas Jefferson host the first Iftar, don’t expect The-Liar-In-Chief to get his facts straight. When his fellow kinsmen are the centerpiece the lies get even bigger – Pinocchio’s nose takes on new meaning.
And, history is fungible.
In ‘Obama Again Spreads False Claim That Thomas Jefferson Held First Ramadan Iftar Dinner At White House’ the historical facts are quite different than those proffered by Reuters (non-existent) fact-checkers. But at least they gave the readers the menu !
Why does all this matter ? Aside from the volume of evidence brought forth at this blog on the subject at hand, Americans have a right – some might say, a duty – to know who is being feted at The People’s House .
Leave it to Walid Shoebat, an ex Muslim Brotherhood terrorist, who did what any repentant anti-western operative would do, he renounced his ties. See here –
“During my time in Chicago, I was a Muslim Brotherhood activist. Imam Jamal Said was my recruiter; his colleague was Abdullah Azzam, the founder of al-Qaeda. Had the 9/11 attacks happened a decade earlier than they did, any attempts to implicate me or Said would have been met with charges of “guilt by association”. In a legal sense, those arguing on my behalf would have been right.”
“However, if I then proceeded to apply for a position at the State Department, which required issuing me a security clearance, those associations would have disqualified me from being eligible. What amazes me is that today, the liberals couldn’t care less about Huma’s associations while being very concerned about mine. Conversely, Tea Party conservatives are rightly concerned about Huma’s associations and have no problems with me.”
“The reason? I publicly denounced my past allegiances. Huma has not. Why?”
“Had I applied for the position Huma now holds under Clinton – at the time I was loyal to the Brotherhood – the likely response would have been something like:
“We’re sorry Mr. Shoebat, but your associations lead us to believe that there may be a conflict of interest between your loyalties to the Muslim Brotherhood and the interests of the United States.”
Guilt by association may not apply in criminal cases but in matters of national security, associations absolutely do. As the closest advisor to the Secretary of State, Huma Abedin should unequivocally denounce the Muslim Brotherhood as well as her family’s connection to it. That should only be a start.”
It gets much worse. O M G !
‘ Huma Sits With ISNA President At The White House Iftar Dinner’ rips the Islamic mask off of terror Islamists supping with Barack Hussein Obama & Huma .
“Yesterday, we commented on the news that President Barack Obama defended Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s closest adviser, Huma Abedin, at the White House Iftar dinner on August 10th.”
“What we didn’t know is that Huma was seated next to the President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Mohamed Magid. The two seemed to be engaged in some friendly conversation and quite comfortable with one another. This is the same ISNA that was not only listed as a Muslim Brotherhood front group that seeks the overthrow of the U.S. Government from within, but also an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial. A 1991 document, penned by a Muslim Brotherhood leader identified the ISNA as a member group.”
“Here is the exact quote from that document that is perhaps the most alarming:
The Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is 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 God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
“In this photo, Huma is at the far left (resting hand under her chin) and Magid is the man she’s talking to on the right.”
Six degrees of separation is a wild understatement.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s installment.
