Rubin Reports

When President Obama hosted his annual Iftar dinner in August 2010 to commemorate the Muslim celebration of Ramadan, the list of invitees published by the White House was curiously missing the names of several attendees — all of whom were top leaders of organizations known to be purveyors of jihadist ideology and implicated by federal prosecutors in financing terrorism.[

But it wasn’t like they had crashed the party. In fact, one of the individuals missing on the official White House list, Mohamed Majid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), was pictured in a news service photograph sitting at the front table just a few feet from the president as he spoke. When Majid was hailed by Time Magazine in November 2005 as a “moderate Muslim cleric” that was helping the FBI fight terrorists, he quickly published an open letter to his congregation on the mosque’s website assuring his congregants that he was doing no such thing stating that his relationship with the FBI was a one-way street only to communicate Muslim community concerns – not to report on individuals suspected of terrorist activity.[iii]

It was just a few years ago the Attorney General of the United States was canceling Muslim outreach events for the sole reason that Majid would be present at the meeting, because the Department of Justice had just named ISNA as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in American history.

But Majid’s connection to terrorism goes back even farther than that, since the offices of the mosque he leads, the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center, were raided by U.S. Customs authorities in March 2002 in a wide-sweeping terror finance investigation. In an affidavit requesting a search warrant for the raids, Customs Agent David Kane testified that Majid’s mosque was being used to launder hundreds of thousands of dollars for the targeted terror finance network that shared offices withADAMS.An appendix to the Customs Service affidavit also names eleven ADAMS Center officials as targets of their terror finance investigation.And yet Majid and the ADAMS Center are still considered legitimate outreach partners by the FBI.

This was just the most recent episode in the disastrous attempts at outreach to the Muslim community since the 9/11 attacks. And with the release in 2011 of President Obama’s strategic plan to combat “violent extremism” to expand outreach to these same terror-tied groups, the present administration seems intent on compounding the disaster wrought by previous administrations.

The results of this investigation should be a serious embarrassment for the Obama administration. The results should be distributed as widely as possible, as they involve the expenditure of millions of dollars of taxpayer money and the promotion of the forces most dangerous to American interests and to the American people today.

THE VENONA FILES AND THE SOVIET ARCHIVES

For many years after the McCarthy "Red Menace" period, a lot of the Senator's "conspiracy paranoia" was dismissed as the fabrications and ravings of an odious man. The FBI's Venona Files were eventually declasified, and with the fall of the USSR, the Soviet archives were opened. McCarthy's premises, which weren't even his own, were largely vindicated.

If we do have a political pushback, will we have a new "McCarthy Era" to deal with Islamist infiltration and sabotage? If we do, we need to tread carefully, and try to avoid the pitfalls of 60 years ago. Even though the Islamist threat is real, they have many "friends," and will lay down political and social minefields to trip up their adversaries.

"The whole “outreach” program has been a farce and it would be charitable to describe it as incompetent on the part of the Obama Administration."

Given the way Dear Liar has sicced the IRS et al. on Tea Party groups, I'm not feeling charitable. This is a deliberate strategy, not a naive, misguided effort to reach out to our enemies.

Why only 4 scandals? You're leaving out the bloody Fast and Furious scandal, the Black Panthers voter intimidation case dismissal, assorted instances of electoral fraud and, first but not least, the supposed birth certificate posted by the White House that was found to be a multi-layered Photoshopped forgery. But somehow even Conservatives are agreed that bringing up elegibility issues is disreputable...

Whatever %age of Muslim blood O has in his veins is being multiplied higher to squelch any other 'blood ties' he started out with by his increasing empathy (not sympathy) in his Muslim relationships with those at the top i.e. Muslim Brotherhood. From his gold ring that proclaims there is no god but allah to his bow to the Saudi prince? king? speaks volumes as to where his interests come from. Scratch American interests. O is for Muslim interests above all.

The State Dept has been quietly bringing untold numbers of muslims to America since 2009. They are not officially counted in immigration totals. I have heard that they want to bring in a total of 100 Million muslims. They are not here to assimilate, they are here to conquer. It is just a different form of jihad.

You know the Lamestream Media will rush to his defense, if this article ever gets any traction. The usual "nothing to see here, let's move on" attitude is pervasive now in the Lamestream Media. It will continue as long as they have their man in the Oval Office. In the case of Hillary, I'll revise it to say "woman" in the Oval Office.

This entire administration, beginning on January 20, 2009 has been one huge scandal with so many facets, it's impossible to keep track of them all. I think it became apparent back when ACORN was caught counselling two youngsters on how to defraud the government to get extra benefits. Voter fraud in May, 2009. Unemployment fraud in October, 2009. ACORN was one of fearless leaders "babies". This administration has proven itself to be the "poster child" of corruption right from the "git-go".

Obama, captain of his team of illegal players, defying all the rules and sneering at the referees, is winning his game, while the opposition looks on in awe, objects in undertones, meets in secret to plan next year's strategy, cries "foul" regularly, and takes another ignominious defeat. Shameful, isn't it?

Obama is actually funding the Muslim Brotherhood efforts inside the U.S.A. under cover of "Muslim Outreach" - that's it in a nutshell. Aiding and abetting an enemy? You bet!

I have an idea for an outreach program for Muslims. We are endlessly reminded that America was founded to provide "freedom of religion". That's not the whole story but a lot people apparently think it is.

As things stand now,Muslims anywhere in the world, including America, do not have freedom of religion because they can't leave Islam without fearing for their lives.

So, America being that champion of religious freedom should pass legislation guaranteeing that Muslims, if they are going to live in America, have the same freedom to LEAVE Islam that followers of every other religion being practiced in America have.

Any Mosque that makes a death threat to a member wishing to leave the faith would be closed, demolished and the land auctioned off.

If such a law was enforced a couple of times we might find out just how many "moderate" Muslims we have.

All we would be asking for is the same religious freedom for Muslims that followers of any other religion have.

Obama is a Muslim, he's a liar and he's sleeping with the enemy. He has installed many of the Muslim Brotherhood in the White House, are we ever going to stop him?
