Obama ‘Reaches Out’ by Naming ‘Devout’ Muslims to Security Posts

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu at IsraelNationalNews.com

(IsraelNN.com) U.S. President Barack Obama continues to “reach out to Muslims” by appointing them to key security posts amid charges he wrongly ignored internal Muslim terror. One recent appointee was harshly criticized for appearing on a British-based television station whose host is a member of a radical Muslim group.

His “reaching out Muslims” speech in Cairo last June has been followed by action, the latest being this past week’s swearing-in of a Muslim rights advocate to the Homeland Security Advisory Council, shortly after the Fort Hood massacre. HSAC members are involved in expertise on national security.

The new member is Syrian-born Kareem Shora, who was the national executive director of the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination (ADC), which previously has called on the United States to stop providing Israel with weapons because of alleged “atrocities” against Arabs. Her background for her new security post is having been a legal counsel and advocate for Muslim civil rights.

She also has been a frequent guest on the pro-Hamas al-Jazeera satellite network.

Shora, who has been described as a “devout Muslim, joins another devout member of the faith, Arif Alikhan, who was appointed as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development in the Department of Homeland Security. His qualifications for the job were listed as having been in charge of public safety in Los Angeles during his term of deputy mayor. One of his actions was to remove the plan that tracked Muslims in the city who were suspected of terrorist activities.

Americans have been jolted by several lethal attacks and confrontations with Muslims over the past year, including a plot to attack synagogues and down U.S. military aircraft, the manufacture of bombs, an alleged attempt to explode a Texas skyscraper, a plot to blow up malls in Boston, and last month’s Fort Hood massacre by a Muslim psychiatrist who was an officer in the army.

A desire to avoid the appearance of labeling all Muslims as terrorists lunged out from the shadows last month after President Obama faced criticism for not taking seriously the threat of Muslim terrorism within American society as well as in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

Several months ago, President Obama appointed Dalia Mogahed, a “devout Muslim,” to his Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. She quickly came under fire for appearing in a telephone interview on a London-based Muslim television station, whose host is a member of an extreme Islamic group.

She said was unaware of the affiliations of her host, whose program included questions and comments favoring the implementation of Islamic Law (“sharia”).

Mogahed explained that she did not hang up the phone in the middle of the interview because “I assumed that very few people would watch this show but that doing something more dramatic would bring more attention.”

In the current issue of Newsweek, columnist Jacob Weisberg, citing former Secretary of State Colin Powell, wrote that “Obama’s [Muslim] heritage feeds a broader suspicion that he is too casual about the threat from America’s Islamist enemies.”

The journalist added, “With the massacre in Texas, Obama now confronts something that George W. Bush did not face in the years after September 11—not just a major act of domestic terrorism, but one struck from inside our security apparatus…. America does not face a threat from the perversion of faith in general. We face a threat from the perversion of one faith in particular.”

  16. And there is a map showing Radical Muslim Terrorist cells all over the USA. We should call our Sherrifs offices now to tell them this concerns us and we want them checked out! I suspect they’ve been systematicaly setting up while they plotted the economic downfall last year and the election of “O”! Call it a conspriacy theory but it sure played out that well. (and fits right into Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals)

  17. Obama got elected for the same reason OJ Simpson got away with murder, ’cause blacks just had one comin’ to ’em. Everybody knew OJ did it, it didn’t matter. Everybody knew Obama was an America-hating Socialist with no experience and no qualifications. That didn’t matter either. People acted like blacks were just owed one. And when someone is given … Read Moresomething without earning it, they don’t respect it. Obama acted throughout the entire campaign like he was owed something, like he was entitled to it. And now Obama is acting like he’s above the law, just like OJ did. It’s going to come back and bite him in the ass, just like it did with OJ. People eventually realized that acquitting OJ was a huge mistake. Hopefully they realize they made “One Big Ass Mistake America” before it’s too late.

  18. “O” knows exactly what he is doing. He is a puppet of the billionaires and the UN who funded his run for President and paid almost 1 billion to seal his birth certificate, school records, etc and fight lawsuits before being sworn in. Then he got the DOJ to handle the rest of the lawsuits and have them all dismissed!

  24. I don’t know, this just scares me a little. Why? Because I know that as a Christian, I am only one small step away from being hated as much as the Muslims hate the Jews (and ergo my head sliced off my body like Daniel Pearl’s). What do my Jewish friends think of this?

  25. He said in his book, he’d stand with his Muslim brothers in the end. You look at his response at Ft. Hood, delaying troops in Afganstan, and now bringing the trial to N.Y., he’s very much trying to protect them, and giving them every chance. I’m afraid we are in for trouble. Terrorism IS now in the U.S..

  26. David V, this will sound harsh, my friend, but you already are hated as much as the muslims hate the Jews. In the muslim eyes, you are an infidel and on the death list. Radical islam has already said that infidels will be beheaded (“Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West”). Ahmedinijad has already said that Jews will wear yellow armbands … Read Moreand Christians will wear white ones. As for me, I will be wearing both colours. What gets me in all of this, is that the American people must look like fools in muslims’ eyes: How could we possibly elect a muslim – and put him in power illegally, yet? Why didn’t we do our homework first? And then our businesses actually honour them by wishing them a Happy [muslim-pig] Holiday in the “Best Buy” flyer, honouring the murderers of our family and friends. They’re laughing at us. Stupid sitting ducks we are.

It is just sad that he is President of a Nation that Rejects all that he does and is. But in 2010 the Reclamation of this Nation begins and ends when this POS is tossed out of this Country!!

  49. Then why post on here if u think we are haters. I do not like to hate but will tell the truth when it will benefit others and open their eyes in the face of EVIL and that is what we are dealing with right now is EVIL in the White House. Did the same thing about the cult my sons belonged to. To help rid and open up the peoples eyes to the EVIL MAN THEY CALLED A BISHOP. And yes people turned against me then also, but I felt since I knew something that they didn’t know,that would help them I needed to let them know( the truth did come out later). It’s just like this, but on a wider scale all of the US is being affected with this EVIL not just a small amount of people.
    THE TRUTH SHALL SIT YOU FREE MATTHEW

  50. This nation is being controlled by the bankers and the corporations. It has been for more than a decade that I know of and possibly longer than that. This new President is the same puppet that our last one was and our next will be the same. The media pushes on us what our choice will be and you can see how they do it it’s not our choice but … See Moretheirs. We have the greatest puppet show on earth brought to you by Goldman Sachs and friends.

    I dislike the attack on Muslims because not all Muslims are bad people. I’m pretty sure the Zionists in Israel have been doing some wrongs to the Palestinians that once called that land their peaceful home as well. We criticize other countries or terrorist groups for attacking but in the meantime we have been occupying and manipulating the control of their countries for decades. Then as a result or the blow-back of our actions we are attacked and then we go and put on a full scale attack to show them what happens when you attack us. We also feel we can go and kill innocent people in Iraq for almost a decade. I say if we want to be a leader then lets lead by example. Bring the soldiers home from the more than 100 foreign countries that we occupy. Talk to and trade with all countries without blindly supporting and overly funding one while treating the others as third world peasants. If we are threatened or attacked then do what needs to be done but don’t blindly support the attack of all similar people because they look the same or have the same religion. That is evil when we attack a whole group because of the actions of a few.
