UTT Throwback Thursday: Leaders Unable to Tell Friend from Foe

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, April 27, 2017:

One lesson the recent debacle in Sioux Falls brought to center stage is that many leaders cannot discern friend from foe in the war against the Islamic Movement.  This exposes Americans to greater danger each day.

Here are a few examples:

Abdurabman Alamoudi was the most prominent Islamic leader in the United States in the 1990’s, and founded or led major Islamic organizations, including the Muslim Students Association.  He created the Muslim Chaplain program for the Department of Defense, was a “Goodwill Ambassador” for the State Department, and was the Islamic Advisor to President Clinton.  The Washington Post called him the “pillar” of the Islamic community in Washington, D.C.

In 2003, Alamoudi was arrested at Heathrow Airport in London, England with $340,000 cash he received from the Libyan government for the global jihad.  As the US government publicly stated, Alamoudi was a financier for Al Qaeda.  He was sentenced to 23 years in prison – the sentence was reduced under President Obama’s administration by 6 years.  He will be released in 3 years.

None of the men or women working directly with Alamoudi have been prosecuted.

Mohamed Magid holds a secret clearance and, until recently sat on the Homeland Security Advisory Committee. He worked directly with the last several Secretaries of State, receives awards from the FBI, lectures at CIA headquarters, worked with the Obama administration, and was publicly lauded by the President’s Deputy National Security Advisor – Denis McDonough.  Until 2014, Magid was the President of the largest Islamic organization in North America, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) – which also happens to be, according to the Department of Justice, a Muslim Brotherhood organization which directly funds the terrorist group Hamas.

Magid was recently given another award by FBI Director James Comey.

Anwar al Awlaki was called the “new face of moderate Islam” by some in the media, like NPR and PBS.  He gave lectures inside the US Capitol about Islam’s prophet Mohammad and spoke at the Pentagon while he was the Imam of a Hamas mosque in Virginia – the Dar al Hijra Islamic Center.  This “moderate” muslim was killed in September 2011 by a US drone strike because he was the leader of Al Qaeda in Yemen.

Suhail Khan currently works for Microsoft, and has been given access into inner circles inside the Republican party.  On 9/11/2001 he was working at the White House.  His lead advocate is Republican strategist Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform.  A number of Republicans have stepped up to defend Khan including leaders of the American Conservative Union.  Khan served for two successive Secretaries of Transportation under the Bush administration and held a secret clearance

Suhail Khan is the son of one of the most influential Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the United States.  ISNA has an annual award named after his father.  Khan himself publicly lauds his deceased father and proudly proclaims the jihadi mantra that muslims love death more than the unbelievers love life.

Siraj Wahhaj was the first Muslim Imam to offer prayers inside the US House of Representatives.  Wahhaj is an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and was a character witness for the Blind Sheikh, convicted for his part in a number of terrorist plots in the US.

On any given day, Nihad Awad can be found walking the halls of Congress, on CNN or Fox News programs (like the O’Reilly Factor when it was on the air) or meeting with Christian or Jewish leaders around the nation as a part of “outreach.”  Local and and national media fall over themselves to promote Awad’s organization, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), as a “civil rights organization” and they go to great lengths to defend them.

The US Department of Justice identifies CAIR as a member of the US Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, which is Hamas.  CAIR is Hamas.  Nihad Awad is the leader Hamas in the United States and – in UTT’s professional opinion – is also the General Masul (Guide/Leader) of the US Muslim Brotherhood.

American citizens, your leaders across the board – of both political parties – have proven they are incapable of discerning friend from foe.

As UTT continues to restate:  this war will be won at the local level or it will be lost.  Local Sheriffs and pastors are the key.  Get to work educating them.  UTT stands ready to help.

UTT Throwback Thursday: Jihadis, CVE, and Congressman McCaul

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, November 17, 2016:

The Countering Violent Extremism or CVE is a program created in Britain by the Muslim Brotherhood.

cve

The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamic jihadi organization whose stated goals in their by-laws are to “Fight the tyrants and enemies of Allah” in order to establish an Islamic State under sharia (Islamic Law).  In North America they do this by waging “Civilization Jihad” by OUR hands to “destroy Western civilization from within.”

CVE is a hostile information campaign and a double-agent program brought from Britain to the United States by FBI and DHS leadership approximately 10 years ago.

CVE’s purpose is to ensure Muslim Brotherhood leaders are exclusively used by the U.S. government as the liaison for all matters pertaining to Islam and terrorism so the MB controls the narrative in this war.

The Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Mike McCaul of Texas, is dutifully fulfilling his obligation to do the Muslim Brotherhood’s bidding and leading the charge to “combat violent extremism.”

Mr. McCaul ensured funding for CVE and pushed to create the Office of Countering Violent Extremism at the Department of Homeland Security.

But what is violent extremism?  How often do “terrorists” claim they do what they do in the name of “violent extremism?”

Never.

We face an enemy that exclusively states they are Muslims waging jihad in the cause of Allah to establish and Islamic State (caliphate) under sharia (Islamic Law).

So long as our federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies chase “violent extremists” they will chase U.S. military veterans, white supremacists, and all other sorts of people – but not Muslims committing jihad.

cve2

Exactly the intent of our enemy, and exactly the focus of DHS efforts.

As a matter of fact, the former Program Manager for the Department of Defense’s Combating Terrorism and Technical Support Office (CTTSO) and Irregular Warfare Section, Richard Higgins, stated on national radio in June 2016:   “When you look at the deliberate decision-making process of the United States government as it relates to radical Islam, that deliberate decision-making process is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood.”

CVE is one of the major tools our enemy is using to get and keep our national security apparatus in such a state of strategic incoherence and Congressman McCaul is its biggest cheerleader.

It is also instructive that Mike McCaul has demonstrated an inability to determine friend from foe when it comes to basic terrorist groups like Hamas.  Calling the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) a “moderate” Islamic organization even though evidence and facts reveal CAIR is Hamas, is dangerous and unprofessional when you are the Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Photo signed by Congressman Mike McCaul for Hamas leader Mustafa Carroll reads:  “To Mustafa at the Council on American Islamic Relations, The Moderate Muslim is our most effective Weapon. Michael McCaul, TX-10”

Photo signed by Congressman Mike McCaul for Hamas leader Mustafa Carroll reads: “To Mustafa at the Council on American Islamic Relations, The Moderate Muslim is our most effective Weapon. Michael McCaul, TX-10”

When a leader like the Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee legitimizes a terrorist (Hamas leader) like Mustafa Carroll – leader of Hamas in Texas – that leader (McCaul) demonstrates his utter incompetence in this war.

Thanks Congressman McCaul.  We can add your name to the growing list of U.S. government officials batting for the other team – whether you understand it or not.

Jihadi Lovers Have No Place in a Trump Administration

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, November 14, 2016:

Senator Bob Corker and Congressmen Mike Rogers and Mike McCaul have no business holding any position in a Trump administration if Mr. Trump actually wants to defeat the Jihadi Movement in the United States.

All three of these men have records of defending jihadis and lashing out at those who speak truth about the real threat from the massive jihadi network in America.

For those of you new to UTT:  Jihadi = “Terrorist”

All three are being considered for positions inside President-elect Trump’s administration.

We can all celebrate the fact Mr. Trump punted jihadi-loving Chris Christie out the door.  Several more to go.

christie

Senator Bob Corker (TN) is the reason the “Iran deal” became a reality, and demonstrates zero understanding of the Islamic threat at any level.  His sidekick, Bill Hagerty, has a relationship with Subhi Ali, the former President of the Tennessee Medical Association.  Ali served at the pro-Hamas Jerusalem Fund as the Vice Chair alongside Founder and Chairman Hisham Shirabi (now deceased).  Shirabi served on the Board of the Hamas organization World and Islam Studies Enterprise founded by Hamas leader Sami al-Arian.  Subhi Ali is now the Chairman of the Jerusalem Fund which has the Hamas Covenant on its website.

Congressman Mike Rogers (AL) publicly chastised Congresswoman Michele Bachmann for laying out evidence from the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in American history (US v HLF, Dallas, 2008) and calling for Inspector Generals to investigate the Muslim Brotherhood’s (MB) penetration of the U.S. government, using Huma Abedin as one example.  Rogers denied there was any MB penetration in the government and defended Huma Abedin as a “patriot.”  He told USA Today, “I have no information in my committee that would indicate that Huma is anything other than an American patriot.”

UTT’s John Guandolo personally briefed the threat to Mr. Rogers, so he cannot claim ignorance.

Congressman Mike McCaul (TX) is the leading cheerleader for the Muslim Brotherhood’s CVE (Countering Violent Extremism) program, which serves to undermine the entire U.S. security apparatus and propel the MB’s objectives in the United States.  As the House of Representatives Homeland Security Committee report states, “Chairman McCaul’s bill significantly elevates CVE as a key priority at the Department of Homeland Security.”

mccaul-640x480

As a side note, Congressman McCaul also thinks Hamas (doing business as CAIR) is a “moderate” organization.  The photo above shows McCaul with Dallas, Texas Hamas leader Mustafa Carroll.

Is this who you want as your next DHS Secretary America?

America, the election of Mr. Trump only provides the OPPORTUNITY to dismantle the jihadi network in the United States.  If he surrounds himself with proven incompetents like those mentioned in this article, we will have 4 more years of destructive “outreach” to terrorists and counterterrorism policies that will only benefit our enemies.

What can you do?  Reach out to any contacts you have at the state or national level inside the Trump camp and say “NO!” to the likes of Corker, McCaul, Rogers or anyone else like them whose name comes up in discussion for a leadership position.

At a minimum go to www.donaldjtrump.com, find your STATE, contact the closest Republican Headquarters, and make your voice heard on this issue.  It does not matter to which political party you belong.  Your voice matters.

The next 30 days is critical to get the right people in the right positions.  Do not sit on your hands celebrating what you think is THE victory.

The battle has just begun.

When Do U.S. Leaders Who Materially Supporting Terrorists Pay for Their Crimes

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, Sept. 19, 2016:

9/17/16 at 9:35 AM EST:  A bomb explodes at a Marine Corps 5K race in Seaside Park, NJ.

9/17/16 at 8:15 PM EST:  A bomb explodes in the Chelsea neighborhood in New York City injuring 29 people.

9/17/16 at 9:15 PM EST:  Somali Muslim Dahir Ahmed Adan enters Crossroads Center shopping mall in St Cloud, Minnesota and stabs nine (9) people while screaming “allah u akbar.”  The jihadi is shot and killed by an off-duty police officer.

9/18/16 at 10:50 PM EST:  Five (5) pipe bombs are discovered in a bag at a train station in Elizabeth, NJ.

9/19/16 at 10:30 AM EST:  A few hours after a city-wide BOLO was put out for Muslim Ahmad Rahami – responsible for the bombs in NY and NJ – and he and police get into a shootout.  Two police officers are shot as was Rahami.  All are in stable condition.

Welcome to a fundamentally changed America.

One must wonder what Andrew Luger – the U.S. Attorney for Minneapolis – is thinking today.  He has invested so much time bending over backwards to appease the Muslims in Minneapolis/St. Paul and continues to apologize for “islamophobia” there while denigrating citizens who speak truth about Islam and the danger it poses to their community.

mn

The jihadi in Minnesota, Dahir Adan, screamed “allah u akbar” and asked people if they were Muslim before he stabbed them.  FBI sources state that after interviewing nearly 50 people in Adan’s neighborhood, including family and friends, the consensus is Adan was not “religious” (FBI lingo) until he read the Koran three months ago.  They also said he had no history of mental illness.

In the law enforcement realm we call these “investigative clues.”

Adan, like all the other “terrorists” from 9/11 to today are not “radicalized” on the internet or from U.S. foreign policy or from their lack of education or from their economic deprivation or because they are mentally ill or because of the way they are treated or because there are not enough McDonalds in Yemen.

Muslims become more prone to wage jihad the more they read the Koran and the stories about Islam’s prophet Mohammad who waged war against non-Muslims, married a six year old, tortured, and approved the killing of people who mocked him.  The people stabbing others, blowing up bombs, and shooting people in night clubs say they are Muslims waging jihad in the cause of Allah to create a caliphate under sharia.

This is exactly what ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hizbollah, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and all the other jihadi organizations in the world state is the reason they do what they do.

This is also what is taught to Muslim children in Islamic schools in the United States, Europe and elsewhere.  Why?  Because it is what Islam is.

Maybe we should pay attention.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio with London Mayor Sadiq Khan

Meanwhile in New York, Mayor de Blasio – who even the New York Times chastised for not calling the bombing “terrorism” – will have to explain why he too shuts down discussions about threats from the Muslim community in New York, but has no problem performing political fellatio on London’s first Muslim Mayor – who just happens to be in town on the weekend of all of this jihadi activity and who is happily imposing sharia (Islamic Law) in the UK while the British take a knee and surrender.

An argument could be made that Mr. Luger is directly responsible for the nine (9) people in Minneapolis who were stabbed, and Mayor de Blasio is directly responsible for the bombings in New York and New Jersey.  They specifically shut down all discussion of the Islamic threat in their communities while defending and supporting the very community from which all of these threats and attacks come.

U.S. Attorney for Minneapolis Andrew Luger Defending Jihadis

American leaders like U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger and New York Mayor de Blasio are tools for the enemy’s strategy.  Our enemy states they will get our leaders to do their bidding for them (Civilization Jihad by OUR hands). They – tools like Mr. Luger and Mr. de Blasio – impose the Islamic law of Slander by silencing those who speak truth about Islamic doctrine – sharia (Islamic Law) – while providing material support to our enemies by defending them and promoting their agenda.

Material support for terrorism…aiding and abetting…

Funny, those sound like violations of the law.

Tim Kaine Promoted the Group Federal Prosecutors Call “the Overt Arm of the Muslim Brotherhood”

Tim-Kaine-630x351CounterJihad, by Bruce Cornibe, July 26, 2016:

Vice Presidential nominee and Virginia Senator Tim Kaine has held some notable positions throughout his political career (Mayor of Richmond, Governor of Virginia, etc.), and continues the tradition – serving as a Virginia Senator as well as a member of important national security teams such as the Senate Armed Services and the Senate Foreign Relations Committees.

However, along with Kaine’s political experience lies a past filled with Islamist connections. Let’s take a look at Kaine’s associations with the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Muslim American Society (MAS) as well as other Islamist groups.

The Clarion Project provides some evidence of MAS’s Muslim Brotherhood background:

Federal prosecutors said in 2008 that “MAS was founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America” and that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and MAS “omit reference to a shared background that limits their membership to those of a particular political bent, and undercuts their credibility.” In January 2012, Abdurrahman Alamoudi, an admitted U.S. Muslim Brotherhood operative that was convicted on terrorism-related charges in 2004, stated, “Everyone knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood.”

It’s important to note that the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy for North America is about performing a “grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated.” The Brotherhood’s ultimate goals are to re-establish the Islamic caliphate and implement Sharia law.

As Virginia’s Governor in 2007, Kaine spoke at the 5th Annual Muslim American Society Freedom Foundation event. MAS was described by U.S. federal prosecutors as the “overt arm” of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Gates of Vienna reports that Kaine “stressed the need for people of all faith traditions to work together to overcome intolerance and bigotry[,]” a key message of the ‘interfaith dialogue’ movement – a movement which Islamists generally promote to conceal their true intentions of furthering Islam. Also in 2007, Kaine regrettably appointed MAS President Dr. Esam Omeish to Virginia’s Commission on Immigration (Omeish resigned shortly after). The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) reveals some of Omeish’s radical proclivities:

…online videos that show Omeish at rallies denouncing the invasion of Lebanon by the “Israeli war machine” and telling a crowd of Washington-area Muslims: “…you have learned the way, that you have known that the jihad way is the way to liberate your land.” The latter video was obtained exclusively by the Investigative Project on Terrorism and can be viewedon YouTube, along with another video that shows Omeish congratulating Palestinians for giving up their lives for the sake Allah.

It’s alarming to think a man who has publicly advocated for jihad was picked by Kaine to influence immigration policy. And now Kaine’s a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee? Even years after the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development Trial in 2007, which exposed the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan for North America, Kaine continues to hang around Islamists.

For example, in 2011, then Senate candidate Kaine spoke at an event organized by New Dominion PAC that presented Jamal Barzinji, a major U.S. Brotherhood leader, with a Lifetime Achievement award. Kyle Shideler for the Center for Security Policy details Barzinji’s impact for theBrotherhood and how his ‘achievements’ were anything but noble:

Barzinji was one of the co-founders of the Muslim Brotherhood Think Tank known as the International Institute of Islamic Thought, located in Fairfax, Virginia. Barzinji was also a founding member of the Muslim Student’s Association (MSA), the founding general manager of the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), a member of the Majlis Ashura of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and director of the SAFA Group, a network of charities and companies headquartered in Northern Virginia, and raided by federal authorities over funding to Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Barzinji was also a founding member of the Association of Muslim Social Scientists of North America (AMSS) and Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers (AMSE), both early Muslim Brotherhood organizations established out of the MSA.

Whether Kaine’s ignorance or knowledge of these Muslim Brotherhood groups and figures led him to make these ill-advised decisions is up for debate, but one thing that’s clear is Kaine’s failure to take the threat of radical Islam seriously.

Some examples of this failure to confront the dangers of radical Islam were exhibited in Kaine’s decision to boycott Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 2015 speech to Congress as well as efforts to delay the speech, Kaine’s support for Obama’s Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or the Iran deal, Kaine’s refusal to halt or pause the refugee resettlement program after the shootings in Paris in November of 2015, and the list continues.

It’s obvious from Kaine’s record that he does not perceive political Islam as major threat to U.S. national security. We must have leaders that can identify subversive Islamists groups within the American political system such as the Muslim Brotherood – who not only want to gradually introduce Sharia law but also will build arguments that defend their jihadist co-religionists. It’s obvious Islamic law does not coincide with Western values since it inherently opposes freedom, liberty, and equality. Kaine must denounce these past associations with Islamist groups and seek their ouster from our political process if he wants to effectively guard our fundamental American freedoms.

Clinton VP Pick Tim Kaine’s Islamist Ties

Presumptive Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton with her choice for vice-president Tim Kaine.

Clarion Project, by Ryan Mauro, July 23, 2016:

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s newly-announced running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, has a history of embracing Islamists. He appointed a Hamas supporter to a state immigration commission; spoke at a dinner honoring a Muslim Brotherhood terror suspect and received donations from well-known Islamist groups.

Appointing a Muslim Brotherhood Front Leader Who Supports Hamas

In 2007, Kaine was the Governor of Virginia and, of all people chose Muslim American Society (MAS) President Esam Omeish to the state’s Immigration Commission. A Muslim organization against Islamism criticized the appointment and reckless lack of vetting.

Federal prosecutors said in a 2008 court filing that MAS was “founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.” AChicago Tribune investigation in 2004 confirmed this, as well as MAS’ crafty use of deceptive semantics to appear moderate. Convicted terrorist and admitted U.S. Muslim Brotherhood member Abdurrahman Alamoudi testified in 2012, “Everyone knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Read our fully-documented profile of MAS here.

According to Omeish’s website, he was also president of the National Muslim Students Association (click there to read our profile about its Muslim Brotherhood origins) and served for two years on the national board of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), which the Justice Department also labeled as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-financing trial.

His website says he was the vice president of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center, a radical mosque known for its history of terror ties, including having future Al-Qaeda operative Anwar Al-Awlaki as itsimam and being frequented by two of the 9/11 hijackers and Nidal Hasan, the perpetrator of the Fort Hood shooting. Omeish’s website says he remains a board member.

Omeish’s website also says he was chairman of the board of Islamic American University, which had Hamas financier and Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef Al-Qaradawi chairman of its board until at least 2006.

Omeish was also chairman of the board for the Islamic Center of Passaic County, a New Jersey mosque with heavy terrorist ties and an imam that the Department of Homeland Security wants to deport for having links to Hamas.

Omeish directly expressed extremism before Kaine appointed him. He claimed the Brotherhood is “moderate” and admitted that he and MAS are influenced by the Islamist movement.

In 2004, Omeish praised the Hamas spiritual leader as “our belovedSheikh Ahmed Yassin.” Videotape from 2000 also surfaced where Omeish pledged to help Palestinians who understand “the jihad way is the way to liberate your land” (he denied this was an endorsement of violence).

When a state delegate wrote a letter to then-Governor Kaine warning him that the MAS has “questionable origins,” a Kaine spokesperson said the charge was bigotry.

Kaine obviously failed to do any kind of basic background checking in Omeish.

Omeish resigned under heavy pressure, and Kaine acknowledged that his statements “concerned” him. But, apparently, they didn’t concern him enough to actually learn about the Muslim Brotherhood network in his state and to take greater precautions in the future.

Speaking at a Dinner Honoring Muslim Brotherhood Terror Suspect

In September 2011, Kaine spoke at a “Candidates Night” dinnerorganized by the New Dominion PAC that presented a Lifetime Achievement Award for Jamal Barzinji, who the Global Muslim Brotherhood Watch describes as a “founding father of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.”

He first came on to the FBI’s radar in 1987-1988 when an informant inside the Brotherhood identified Barzinji and his associated groupsas being part of a network of Brotherhood fronts to “institute the Islamic Revolution in the United States.” The source said Barzinji and his colleagues were “organizing political support which involves influencing both public opinion in the United States as well as the United States Government” using “political action front groups with no traceable ties.”

Barzinji had his home searched as part of a terrorism investigation in 2003. U.S. Customs Service Senior Special Agent David Kane said in a sworn affidavit that Barzinji and the network of entities he led were investigated because he “is not only closed associated with PIJ [Palestinian Islamic Jihad]…but also with Hamas.”  Counter-terrorism reporter Patrick Poole broke the story that Barzinji was nearly prosecuted but the Obama Justice Department dropped plans for indictment.

Barzinji played a major role in nearly every Brotherhood front in the U.S. and was vice president of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), which came under terrorism investigation also. Barzinji’s group was so close to Palestinian Islamic Jihad operative Sami Al-Arian that IIIT’s President considered his group and Al-Arian’s to be essentially one entity.

The indictment of Al-Arian and his colleagues says that they “would and did seek to obtain support from influential individuals, in the United States under the guise of promoting and protecting Arab rights (emphasis mine).”

The quotes about Brotherhood operative Barzinji’s aspirations to use civil rights advocacy as a means to influence politicians are especially relevant when you consider that video from the event honoring Barzinji shows Kaine saying that it was his fourth time at the annual dinner and thanked his “friends” that organized it for helping him in his campaign for lieutenant-governor and governor and asked them to help his Senate campaign.

Islamist Financial Support

Barzinji’s organization, IIIT, donated $10,000 in 2011 to the New Dominion PAC, the organization that held the event honoring Barzinji that Kaine spoke at. The Barzinji-tied New Dominion PAC donated $43,050 to Kaine’s gubernatorial campaign between 2003 and 2005. That figure doesn’t even include other political recipients that assisted Kaine’s campaign.

The PAC has very strong ties to the Democratic Party in Virginia, with the Virginia Public Access Project tallying almost $257,000 in donations. This likely explains why Barzinji’s grandson served in Governor McAuliffe’s administration and then became the Obama Administration’s liaison to the Muslim-American community.

The Middle East Forum’s Islamist Money in Politics database shows another $4,300 donated to Kaine’s Senate campaign in 2011-2012 by officials from U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entities Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Another $3,500 came from Hisham Al-Talib, a leader from Barzinji’s IIIT organization.

It’s worth noting that Barzinji’s IIIT donated $3,500 to Esam Omeish’s 2009 campaign delegate campaign, tying together the cadre of Muslim Brotherhood-linked leaders who got into Kaine’s orbit.

Conclusion

Kaine has no excuse. If he has an Internet connection, then he and his staff should have known about their backgrounds. They were either extremely careless (something Kaine would have in commonwith the top of the ticket) or knew and looked the other way in the hopes of earning donations and votes.

Clinton’s choice of Kaine is widely seen as a way of strengthening her campaign’s national security credentials. Yet, Clinton is asking us to trust a candidate on national security who appoints a Hamas supporter to an immigration commission and speaks at a dinner honoring a Muslim Brotherhood terror suspect.

And she is asking us to trust her, who chose such a candidate.

CAIR Leader Nezar Hamze Is Now Deputy Sheriff

hamze

First Jewish Sheriff of Broward County picks representative of terror group to wear gun and badge.

Frontpage, by Joe Kaufman, July 24, 2015:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has its foundation in the terrorist organization Hamas. It has been named as a co-conspirator by the U.S. government for two federal trials dealing with the financing of Hamas, and it is recognized as an international terrorist group by the government of United Arab Emirates (UAE). Given this information, how is it possible that one of this group’s leaders, Nezar Hamze, could be considered for a position at one of the most prominent Sheriff’s offices in the United States? However, that is exactly what has happened.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) is the largest fully accredited Sheriff’s office in the nation. As such, having the title of Sheriff comes with much fanfare and responsibility. The current Sheriff is Scott Israel; he was elected to office in November 2012. As Sheriff, Israel has made it a point to reach out to diverse crowds, including those who could be considered enemies of the U.S. and her allies.

Broward Sheriff Scott Israel’s 2015 radical Muslim tour began this past January, when he posed for photos with Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout and a member of Zakkout’s Miami-based AMANA group at a local mosque. Zakkout is a big supporter of Hamas. On his Facebook page, one can find Hamas logos and photos of Hamas militants and leaders, including Hamas founders Ahmed Yassin and Abdel Aziz al-Rantisi and deceased Hamas bomb maker Yehiya Ayyash.

***

Can Sheriff Israel, the first Jewish Sheriff in Broward County, seriously believe that Nezar Hamze – a man who has spent years as a leader of a fanatic Muslim organization; a man who repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas when given numerous chances; a man who tried to make excuses for his murderer cousin, after his cousin had willfully ran over a woman, dragged her body for several miles, and then tried to flee the country – should serve as a Deputy Sheriff in one of the most prominent Sheriff’s offices in the nation?!!

By employing Nezar Hamze, Sheriff Scott Israel has compromised not only the Broward Sheriff’s office, but the security of the entire county and by extension U.S. national security. And with the intelligence information made available to someone in Hamze’s position and the misleading information Hamze has exhibited he is capable of providing, who knows how much damage this could cause!

If the situation is not corrected and Nezar Hamze is not dismissed from his position immediately, Sheriff Israel should resign from office immediately.

If you wish to contact Sheriff Israel, you can do so by sending an e-mail to:ask_the_sheriff@sheriff.org, or you can call the Broward Sheriff’s Office, at 954-764-4357. Please be respectful in any and all communications with this office.
