Terror-tied U.S. defense contractor, Rahim Sabadia…another mobbed up Brotherhood operative.
WHILE some would like to believe that CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood’s U.S. propaganda arm, its spearhead, is “in the dog house” in Washington’s circles – due to its unindicted co-conspirator status during the Holy Land (Terror) Foundation trial – the fact of the matter is that this is nothing short of fantasy land.
The aforementioned was reported at a previous commentary, but more mind-blowing details are forthcoming:
Nihad Awad, the Executive Director for CAIR, has announced the launching of a Muslim Brotherhood political party in the U.S. called the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). Investor’s Business Daily reports that the “membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups” and says that USCMO seeks to “elect Islamists in Washington” who will seek to institutionalize Sharia law.
On its website, the USCMO even describes itself as “an umbrella group” for Muslims. Founding members of this USCMO are proven ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and include the Muslim American Society (MAS), the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and others. Of course, it’s easy to see how the Muslim Brotherhood would be the “umbrella group” for the USCMO.
It’s not uncommon for the Muslim Brotherhood to have a separate, political party that does its bidding. In Egypt, the Freedom and Justice Party was one such entity and it was the party of Mohammed Mursi, who is now in jail and identified as a leader of a terrorist organization, a designation the new government in Egypt has given to the group.
Awad knows what it’s like to wield influence in Washington, D.C. As head of CAIR, he led one of the many groups that gained access to the George W. Bush White House both before and after 9/11/01. In fact, Awad, along with Dr. Yahya Basha, who was president of the now-defunct American Muslim Council, Salam Al-Marayati, the Executive Director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), and Muzammil Siddiqi, then-President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), were all relied upon by the Bush administration to help develop the dangerously flawed strategy of what was actually Muslim Brotherhood outreach.
As Shoebat.com has reported, Yahya Basha now serves on the board of the highly suspect Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF), which found controversy when Political Director for the group, Elizabeth O’Bagy didn’t disclose a significant conflict of interest. Senator John McCain read from a Wall Street Journal Op-ed O’Bagy wrote to justify assisting Syrian jihadists. McCain hired O’Bagy after she was fired. Basha continues to be listed as a Board member of the group.
MPAC’s Al-Marayati was appointed as the U.S. State Department’s envoy to a human rights conference back in 2012, which Shoebat.com reported at the time.
IN light of the above, the fact that this blogger has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia – with CAIR as its front-arm – is DEEPLY embedded in Obama Inc., as well as in Congress, how shocking is it to learn that its tentacles are burrowed within the Pentagon, even as some believe that they are no longer a factor at Defense? Hogwash. Besides, this site has already gutted Chuck Hagel, the Pentagon’s chief Islamist back bencher.
YET, a careful review of the Brotherhood’s American tentacles can be reviewed, just in case anyone has a doubt as to what’s what. And to further the educational process, CAIR’s pet within the Brotherhood’s hydra, Hamas, is considered far worse than Hitler’s Nazis. Say what?
EVEN so, while the infiltration was started years ago, it exploded exponentially under the reign of Obama!
REGARDLESS of everything else, CAIR’s footprints keep popping up, each and every time jihad in America rears its head. Why is this? Why indeed.
NOT only that, CAIR’s penetration into the FBI makes nonsense out of the claim, yes, it has been marginalized within Washington’s agencies.

IN effect, this blogger wants the reader to just consider Rahim Sabadia, aka Abdur Rahim Noormohamed (hmm…one of his aliases), as the tip of the Brotherhood’s high level security accessing arm to the Pentagon, even though reportedly revoked. As if….
Four years after the Pentagon suspended the security clearance of Rahim Sabadia — a South African-born, California-based defense contractor who has bankrolled the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — new discoveries raise questions about how he had been permitted to hold one in the first place. Documents analyzed by Islamist Watch show that Sabadia’s foundation donated to an infamous Hamas-funding charity and other radicals, that in 1985 he pleaded guilty to the sale of illegal listening devices, and that immigration officials had ordered him out of the country a decade earlier. Topping off this troubling record, Sabadia recently pleaded guilty to providing false information to a Navy procurement officer in a scheme to recapture an old contract. The Sabadia saga is a warning that Islamists and their sympathizers must be kept away from the sensitive technologies and institutions that protect America.
Concerns about Sabadia initially came to light in a 2011 article by Matt Pearce and Brooke Williams for the Orange County Register. While researching the millions of taxpayer dollars that had been flowing to Sabadia’s Sabtech Industries — thanks, in part, to earmarks fromGary Miller, a Republican congressman whose campaign chest was regularly filled by Sabadia and his wife — the journalists learned that Sabadia had lost his secret-level clearance in 2010. As a result, his company had to stop work on a lucrative contract to upgrade the Navy’s Aegis combat system, a key component of ballistic missile defense. Federal agencies did not disclose the reason for the suspension, but Pearce and Williams located an internal email citing worries about “charitable contributions.”
The authors note that Sabadia, via the Sabadia Family Foundation (SFF), distributes money to “many Islamic education, relief, and humanitarian organizations,” and “one of the foundation’s large beneficiaries — receiving at least $1.2 million since 2002 — is the Council on American-Islamic Relations.” CAIR has been on the outs in Washington due to its designation as an unindicted co-conspirator in the case against the Holy Land Foundation, a charity convicted in 2008 of funneling millions to Hamas. In another interesting CAIR–Sabadia link, Omar Zaki, Sabtech’s onetime vice president, is CAIR’s current national chairman.
Sabadia’s massive financing of CAIR, which has reached $1.296 million for its Los Angeles chapter based on available SFF tax filings (2001–12), as well as lesser support for similar Islamist pressure groups, certainly should have grabbed the Defense Department’s attention. However, there have been far more disturbing recipients of the Sabadia family’s largesse.
The most notorious SFF grantee was the Holy Land Foundation itself, which collected $3,300 in 2001, the year that federal authorities finally shut it down. Also enjoying Sabadia’s generosity in 2001 was the American Muslim Foundation, which pocketed $700. That organization was led by the high-profile Islamist Abdurahman Alamoudi, who is now serving a long prison term following his role in an international assassination plot. Additionally, the SFF has gifted $1.177 million (2001–12) to Islamic Relief USA, which is a subsidiary and funder of Islamic Relief Worldwide, a charity that, according to an Americans for Peace and Tolerance report, “has multiple associations with Hamas fundraising and with the Muslim Brotherhood leadership in the U.S., Europe, and Sudan.”
The SFF’s roster of beneficiaries also betrays a fondness for radical mosques and imams. In 2001, the foundation gave $4,500 to Oakland’sMasjid Al-Islam, which, in the words of the Anti-Defamation League, is “affiliated with the anti-Semitic Sabiqun movement, which seeks to establish Islamic rule in the U.S.” Even the Southern Poverty Law Center, known for vilifying critics of Islamism, calls Masjid Al-Islam and the Sabiqun network “hate groups.” In 2002, the SFF sent $100 to defend Jamil al-Amin, an imam convicted that year of the 2000 murder of a Georgia sheriff’s deputy. He has since been identified as the head of the Ummah, another entity striving for an Islamic state within U.S. borders. In 2007, the SFF contributed $25,000 to Brooklyn’s Masjid At-Taqwa, which the New York Police Department classified among the city’s “tier one mosques of concern.” That is largely due to the influence of Imam Siraj Wahhaj, who was listed as one of the “unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the foiled follow-up attacks. Wahhaj, too, dreams of a Shari’a-governed America.
Sabadia’s run-ins with the law should have raised further red flags for those vetting him. On January 21, 1985, Sabadia was hit with a seven-count federal indictment (Central District of Illinois) for selling electronic devices “primarily useful for the purpose of the surreptitious interception of wire or oral communications,” contrary to Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 2512. Investigators had caught him peddling “telephone drop-in FM transmitters,” “ink pen FM transmitters,” and “‘snooper’ contact microphones.” Sabadia pleaded guilty to three counts and was sentenced to three years of probation for each, set to run concurrently, and insignificant fines and restitution.
Besides outing his past criminality, the 1985 court papers expose Sabadia’s former name, Abdur Rahim Noormohamed, which can still be found on various websites. It turns up somewhere else as well: in documents that place Noormohamed/Sabadia at the heart of an immigration dispute during the 1970s.
According to a decision from an Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) district director dated May 23, 1977, Noormohamed/Sabadia entered the U.S. from Switzerland in January 1976 on a nonimmigrant visa for business in New York on behalf of a textile company. He soon went to Dallas and joined his brother Moosa in a separate venture exporting electronics. When his six-month admission was nearly up, Noormohamed/Sabadia applied for permanent residence based on the claim that he was a qualified investor. The INS official ruled that he did not meet the requirements, rejected his application, and instructed him to leave the country, declaring: “It can only be concluded that you and your brother did not enter the United States in good faith as nonimmigrants without any intention of circumventing the quota restrictions of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended.” In other words, they had planned to remain in the U.S. from the start. The INS district directordismissed a motion to reconsider his decision, the INS regional commissioner affirmed the denial, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas backed the INS, and the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals approved the ruling. Yet Noormohamed/Sabadia managed to stay. A documentfrom a legal case explored below notes that he married Nafees El Batool in 1979 and became a U.S. citizen in 1989….read the whole thing….
THE very fact that prosecutors – those who are tasked with protecting the people’s interest – soft-pedaled Sabadia, a well-connected, well-funded jihadi “defense” contractor, attests to the degraded state of affairs on every conceivable level in the realm of national security.
MOREOVER, since Hamas, the Brotherhood’s (CAIR’s) terror spawn, has proven to be a genocidal foe of Israel, a so-called ally of the U.S., well, this too demonstrates where Washington and its long-arm of “justice’ is heading – straight into the arms of Islamic jihad!
