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.”

Radical Islam’s War Against the West


Digg!
#TCOT #diggcons

If you haven’t seen Obsession, Radical Islam’s War Against the West, you should.  It’s well worth the $12.95 asking price.  The documentary uses former terrorists, historians, video from Islamic television, and even a former officer in the Hitler Youth to illuminate the grave threat posed by Islamic extremists that is shockingly ignored by the MSM. 

Video from Palestinian Media Watch, television broadcasts from several Islamic networks, and footage of radical Muslim clerics provide first hand evidence of the indoctrination of Muslims by governments and religious leaders (sometimes a combination of both) to slaughter innocent men, women, and children in Western society.  Music videos, television series, propaganda disguised as news broadcasts, school lessons, and sermons are designed and focused to foster a hatred so deep of Western society that families proudly send their children on suicide missions to slay unsuspecting “infidels.”

Brigitte Gabriel, founder and president of American Congress for Truth, says the MSM minimizes the threat this radical branch of Islam poses to Western society.  She understands this threat better than most, since she was born in Lebanon and raised a Christian.  Nonie Darwish, whose father headed Fedayeen terror operations against Israel in the 1950’s, was born in Egypt and raised in the Gaza Strip.  She describes her school curriculum that taught young children to hate and indoctrinated them to aspire to become martyrs.  Khaled Toameh, a Palestinian journalist explains the goal of radical Islam is to bring down the West.   Walid Shoebat, a former Palestinian Liberation Organization terrorists says Muslims are also victims because they are killed if they speak out against the radical element.

The sermons and speeches of Sheiks’ and clerics’ vitriolic calls for violence against the West are too numerous to list.  Several openly call for the destruction of the West and the murder of its citizens.  Abu Hamza Al-Masri was caught on video explaining that infidels are like cows.  If a Muslim has the opportunity to capture a non-believer, he should “try to sell him at market.”  If he cannot be sold, “kill him, it’s ok.” 

The documentary illuminates stunning similarities between today’s radical Islamic movement and Nazi Germany in the run up to World War II.  A meeting between Adolf Hitler and then-Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini is revealed in which a strange alliance between the Fuhrer and the non-Aryan Mufti was forged in pursuit of Hitler’s dream to rid the world of Jews.  Nazi propaganda cartoons and those of radical Islamists are shown side-by-side and it’s almost as if radical Islam is using Hitler’s playbook.  The Chamberlain land-for-peace deal of 1938 is compared directly to recent Western proposals attempting to achieve peace in Palestine.  Alfons Heck, once an officer in the Hitler Youth, says “anyone who can’t learn the lessons from Nazi Germany can’t understand the threat posed by radical Islam.”

We can wish and hope for peace, but radical Islamists are at war with us.  Bent on our annihilation, they train their young children to make war on our society, preach hatred in their mosques, and plot to overthrow us.  While the MSM minimizes the threat they pose, they are infiltrating our neighborhoods.

The most amazing part is that so many Westerners defend these terrorists and deny the danger they pose.  In the words of Ms. Gabriel, “Political correctness is killing us.”

Here’s a 10 minute clip from the documentary.
