I strongly believe that this current administration is betraying our best interests by meeting with Islamists who are currently plotting mass destruction against our country. It seems to me that the Obama presidency is pursuing a policy of appeasing the terrorists by restricting the freedom of thought and speech which are guaranteed by the US legal system.
Historically it is obvious that every attempt that the administration has made to help the so-called ‘arab spring’ has resulted in the expansion of power of the Muslim Brotherhood and assisted Iran in developing it’s nuclear program. For all the bluster and talk about sanctions the Iranians are moving full-steam ahead toward developing a nuclear weapon.
Obama has facilitated the Muslim Brotherhoods expansion of power in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and now Syria. While I was an initial supporter of bringing down the madman of Libya Quadaffi, I have since changed my stance and believe it was a GRAVE MISTAKE for the dictator to be deposed without planning who would take over after. As it stands the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi demonstrates that Al-Queda and other jihadi forces are running wild in the vacuum created by the removal of Quadaffi.
But this story really takes the cake:
White House officials met this month with Sheikh Abdullah bin Bayyah, a deputy of radical Egyptian cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood who has been banned from entering the United States, reported the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT).
The June 13 meeting took place on the same day the Obama administration announced plans to arm Syria’s rebel forces, the report noted.
IPT noted that al-Qaradawi, the founder of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), endorses Palestinian Authority Arab suicide bombers and supports Hamas in its fight against Israel. The report also said that bin Bayyah, like al-Qaradawi, also “refuses to label the acts of groups such as Hamas, Hizbullah or the Islamic Jihad as terrorism.”
The White House reportedly sought the meeting with bin Bayyah, the IPT report declared.
According to IPT, in a post written in Arabic on his own website, bin Bayyah quoted National Security Council official Gayle Smith as saying, “We asked for this meeting to learn from you and we need to be looking for new mechanisms to communicate with you and the Association of Muslim Scholars.”
The post carried a picture appearing to show bin Bayyah at a table with U.S. officials in the White House
Other senior officials that bin Bayyah said were in attendance include Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation; White House spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri; and National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, according to IPT.
Bin Bayyah reportedly lobbied the White House to “take urgent action” to help Syrian rebels fighting to overthrow the regime of Bashar al-Assad during the meeting.
In granting bin Bayyah a visa, noted IPT, White House officials ignored his radical statements as well as his close connection to Qaradawi. The IUMS’s hostility toward Israel, and its support of terrorists, is well documented. Bin Bayyah falls comfortably in line with that view.
It should be clear that our current administration does not consider what these groups do to be terrorism, as we know the Fort Hood terrorist was labelled ‘workplace violence’ and the 9/11 attack on our consulate was called a ‘spontaneous protest’. Obama wants us all to stick our heads in the sand and pretend that the threat from these twisted religious nuts doesn’t exist.
Our freedom of speech and freedom of thought are being infringed. How much longer before it becomes illegal to ‘slander’ the prophet mohamud? When will the death penalty be imposed on the ‘infidel’ for not bowing to their false prophet? It is wicked that evil people, in the name of a false religion, impose their demented ways on those who want to live in peace.
