The Islamic Society of North America held its annual convention over the weekend in Chicago. President Obama chose to send the convention a video greeting, in which he congratulated ISNA for “the myriad of ways the American Muslim community and specifically ISNA leadership, has served as an effective partner in promoting inter-religious initiatives in the U.S. and religious freedom for minorities around the world.”

The Christian Copts in Egypt must not count as a minority, because ISNA hasn’t lifted a finger to help them against the Muslim Brotherhood’s pogroms.

That might be due to the fact that ISNA itself is a creature of the Muslim Brotherhood, according to Discover the Networks.

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) was established in July 1981 by U.S-based members of the Muslim Brotherhood with a background as leaders of the Muslim Students Association (MSA). As author and terrorism expert Steven Emerson puts it, ISNA “grew out of the Muslim Students Association, which also was founded by Brotherhood members.” Indeed, Muslim Brothers would dominate ISNA’s leadership throughout the Society’s early years. Striving “to advance the cause of Islam and serve Muslims in North America so as to enable them to adopt Islam as a complete way of life,” ISNA was highly dependent upon Saudi funding during its early years.

The Muslim Brotherhood has specific goals for its activism in the United States. Muslim Brotherhood operative Mohamed Akram wrote them down in a memo that was introduced into evidence in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation Trial.

Written sometime in 1987 but not formally published until May 22, 1991, Akram’s 18-page document listed the Brotherhood’s 29 likeminded “organizations of our friends” that shared the common goal of dismantling American institutions and turning the U.S. into a Muslim nation. These “friends” were identified by Akram and the Brotherhood as groups that could help convince Muslims “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands … so that … God’s religion [Islam] is made victorious over all other religions.”

Akram was well aware that in the U.S., it would be extremely difficult to promote Islam by means of terror attacks. Thus the “grand jihad” that he and his Brotherhood comrades envisioned was not a violent one involving bombings and shootings, but rather a stealth (or “soft”) jihad aiming to impose Islamic law (Sharia) over every region of the earth by incremental, non-confrontational means, such as working to “expand the observant Muslim base”; to “unif[y] and direc[t] Muslims’ efforts”; and to “present Islam as a civilization alternative.” At its heart, Akram’s document details a plan to conquer and Islamize the United States – not as an ultimate objective, but merely as a stepping stone toward the larger goal of one day creating “the global Islamic state.”

Here is Obama’s video greeting to the Muslim Brotherhood offshoot ISNA. It aired at the convention on Saturday, the same day President Obama announced his intention to launch military strikes on Syria, strikes that would effectively put the United States on the same side as Muslim Brotherhood offshoot al-Qaeda in Syria’s civil war.

The Left doesn't care. They'll gladly hand the world to an Islamic Caliphate under The Shari'ah as long as it means that Christianity and Judaism is destroyed. Even if they lose their beloved sexually-charged secularism in the process.

The Left hates Christianity and Judiasm more than they love Secularism.

If you examine Obama's interactions throughout his life...with Rashid Khalidi, Edward Said, Ali Abunimah, ...if you understand just how very, very, very close Jeremiah Wright was/is to Louis Farrakhan...if you understand who the Nation of Islam roots for and against...and the Nation of Islam members who are/were members of Obama's campaign staff...

If you understand what has been available to see since prior to the 2008 election...why is ANYONE surprised?

If you understand who Robert Malley is...and who his parents were...and how/why he went to speak secretly with Hamas...

If you understand Valerie Jarrett, who her father is/was...and what they stand for and against...

If you understand Bill Ayers, Samantha Power, Eric Holder, Hagel, ...you will understand who they root for and against...


If you understand why the Department of Defense is being sued for equating Catholics, Jews, Mormons and Evangelicals with terrorists...

Then...and only then...will you understand that this is not an "unintentional act", the Muslim Brotherhood and the Nation of Islam have enemies....but Obama is not among them.

YOU are.

Obama is a Traitor to America and should not be Impeached, which would give him credibility, but put on Trial for Treason, and if found guilty, have his Execution on Nationally Televised, as a warning to any other Village Idiots who want to make up a story and try and become President of our America!

With a democraticmajority in the senate an impeachment is not possible. The Court is despicable and much of congress is corrupt. Who in power will arrest, try, convict and execute the SOB in the White House?

"Civilization alternative." I love the irony in that. Apparently they wish to turn the world into Cairo and Syria. Why? Why would someone want to do that?

Name one place outside the West that is Muslim that Muslims all dig living in? There is none, except for the fantasy kingdoms based on oil. Sure, then life's a Cabaret ol' chum.

He's either a Marxist, playing these people like a fiddle, or he's one of them.


I've leaned toward the first view, but I'm beginning to wonder...


Either way, he's a traitor.

See, we don't need any conspiracy theory.
The truth is just there, hidden by being in the open.

It is a scandal, but the greater scandal is that the GOP has joined the media in the cooperation with this friend of the muslim brotherhood.
That is the true problem.
If the GOP keeps going like this, and indeed supports the war FOR the muslim brotherhood, I have no reason to vote in 2014 nor 2016, because I do not want to vote for anyone who supports the agenda of Obama.

We claim to distrust the government and we claim that the MSM is always lying to us. (of *course,* there's a 'but', here.)

But...

When the government and the MSM told us that there were 'moderate muslims,' in the world, and that 'Islam was a religion of peace that had been hijacked by extremists,' many - if not most - Americans believed them.

'Moderate' muslims, like unicorns, do not exist in the real world.

A 'moderate' muslim is one who is not actively trying to kill you, at the moment.

We have muslims in policy and decision making positions in our government and in our military. iow, The people who want to kill us are being paid - by your taxes - to tell us how to kill them. No. It doesn't make sense. What we're doing is insane and self-defeating.

WHOSE SIDE IS THIS PRESIDENT ON?

“the myriad of ways the American Muslim community and specifically ISNA leadership, has served as an effective partner in promoting inter-religious initiatives in the U.S. and religious freedom for minorities around the world.”

The only tangible thing that I can think of that Muslims in the United States have contributed to is construction jobs in Lower Manhattan.

"“the myriad of ways the American Muslim community and specifically ISNA leadership, has served as an effective partner in promoting inter-religious initiatives in the U.S. and religious freedom for minorities around the world.”

Obama never gives any examples of course.
Who side is this POTUS on? This is a question that congress needs to ask; given the lengths that Obama has gone to in order to aid the Muslim Brother hood. Before anything is done in Syria, I believe we'll see Obama cornered and having to fess up and tell us WTF is going on. He dissed us and the Congress again in Sweden. Obama must be told back off and called up before congress to answer questions; he's behaving like and imperial teenager more and more as days go by.
That being said; I do hope that given time, we'll arrive at a point where we back Israel and go forward from there.

Every case of "interfaith dialogue" with Muslims that I've read about ends when someone finds an Arabic sermon from the Muslim. Seems that the things they say in English in front of the cameras have no relation to the things they actually preach.

"dismantling American institutions" and "destroying the Western civilization from within" are shared goals of the MB and Dear Liar. Viewing his actions with that in mind, things make much more sense.

Obama feels like the only way to "restore world justice" is to restore the Caliphate. Samantha Power's "Responsibility to Protect" doctrine? It's meant to protect the Third World and the Muslim World. Protect them from the US.

Not somewhere Jimmy. We know where the treason is. The traitor squats in the Oval Office with his filthy shoes up on a desk occupied once upon a time by some great men whose shoes he wouldn't have been fit to shine.
