Banned Muslim Cleric’s Deputy Visits White House

The Obama administration is planning talks with the Taliban in Qatar.  The Obama administration meets with a Muslim cleric Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyah from a group that has been banned from the U.S. Yet none of this even makes the news. It makes little sense. But then again recall Kerry may hire Hamas supporter diplomat for advisory post? This fellow Malloy? Perhaps it does make sense to those who chose to read the writing on the wall.

Malley has a controversial anti-Israel history that includes chastising the Jewish state while negotiating with Hamas. He also has defended Hezbollah, as well as other violent and illiberal Middle East factions

Malley’s most prominent misstep came in 2008 when he was fired from his post as an adviser to then-Sen. Obama after he entered into direct negotiations with Hamas.

The Obama Administration held talks with Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyah, the vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, in the White House. The Investigative Project reported:

Radical Egyptian cleric Yusuf Qaradawi is considered so radical that the United States bans him from entering the country.

Qaradawi, considered the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, has called for the killing of Jews and Americans.

That history makes the June 13 White House meeting with Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyah all the more inexplicable. Bin Bayyah is vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a group founded by and headed by Qaradawi. The IUMS has a long history of supporting Hamas –a top Hamas leader is an IUMS member – and of calling for Israel’s destruction.

Bin Bayyah’s website claims that he met June 13 with senior Obama administration officials at the White House.

Nonetheless, it was the Obama administration which sought the meeting with Bin Bayyah, his website’s account said.

“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 (another name used for the IUMS),” Gayle Smith, senior director of the National Security Council, reportedly said. HINT: She was previously a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, George Soros funded organization.

Sheikh Abdullah Bin Bayyah posted this photo of his June 13 White House meeting.

Kerry may hire Hamas supporter diplomat for advisory post

This fellow Malley should work out well with Kerry. It is not the anti-Israel position that should catch our attention, but rather, he is another terrorist loving Middle East faction supporter. Hezbollah and Hamas are swell folks. But then again, the mystery man Kerry has connections that we should not forget. Recall Kerry reveals his Iranian family ties?

Kerry exposes Iranian family tie — and subjects family to blackmail

In a greeting to the Iranian people (do check out the greeting-unbelievable) on the occasion of the traditional New Year (Nowruz) holiday last week, Secretary of State John Kerry exposed a secret that journalists and academics have been agonizing over for the past six weeks: the fact that his daughter has married an Iranian-American who has extensive family ties to Iran.

“I am proud of the Iranian-Americans in my own family, and grateful for how they have enriched my life,” Kerry said in the official statement. Kerry also said he was “strongly committed to resolving” the differences between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran, “to the mutual benefit of both of our people.”

Since its inception, the FBI has vetted U.S. government officials involved in national security issues, and it generally won’t grant clearances to individuals who are married to nationals of an enemy nation or have family members living in that country, for fear of divided loyalties or, more simply, blackmail.

Kerry has repeatedly appeared with groups such as the American Iranian Council (AIC), and has taken money from Iranian-Americans for his political campaigns, including at least one illegal donation from an Iranian woman who did not have a green card.

Among Sen. John Kerry’s top fund-raisers are three Iranian-Americans who have been pushing for dramatic changes in U.S. policy toward the Islamic Republic of Iran.

So he didn’t need to have an Iranian-American family member to believe that the United States should forge direct relations with the Islamic Republic or ease U.S. pressure on the regime.

Let us not forget Iranian born Valerie Jarrett – the real center of Obama’s inner circle  who still has friends in Iran.

Now back to this fellow Robert Malley:

An anti-Israel diplomat who was kicked off the 2008 Obama campaign after he was caught negotiating with the terror group Hamas is under consideration for a State Department advisory post, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

Robert Malley, a longtime government insider who worked for former President Bill Clinton and advised then-Sen. Barack Obama, is said to be on Kerry’s shortlist for deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs, according to reports and sources. He currently serves as the Middle East director of the International Crisis Group (ICG).

Malley has a controversial anti-Israel history that includes chastising the Jewish state while negotiating with Hamas. He also has defended Hezbollah, as well as other violent and illiberal Middle East factions.

A State Department spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

Malley’s most prominent misstep came in 2008 when he was fired from his post as an adviser to then-Sen. Obama after he entered into direct negotiations with Hamas.

Sunni Leaders Call for Jihad Against Shi’ites Over Syria

What could be better? Let the Sunni and Shiites blast each other back into the stone age. As for us? We sit back and let them have at it. But then again, we have our savant McCain running around Syria telling us all is well! McRINO Claims Radical Islamists Make Up Only A Small Fraction Of Rebel Forces In Syria…

WASHINGTON – US Senator John McCain said on Wednesday, two days after meeting with rebels in Syria, that he is confident the United States can send weapons to fighters in Syria without the risk they will fall into the wrong hands.

“We can identify who these people are. We can help the right people,” McCain said on CNN’s program “Anderson Cooper 360.”

For example, he said, Syria’s Islamist al-Nusra Front, identified as an alias of al Qaeda in Iraq, accounts for only about 7,000 of the 100,000 fighters battling the government of Assad. So John, did you go around and count them? Or is that what you were told.

Just think, we could have John instead of Obummer as President. Nice thought.

CNSNews.com) – In a further sign that Syria’s civil war is  increasingly becoming a theater of battle between Shi’ite and Sunni  extremists – under the respective flags of Hezbollah and al-Qaeda – a  group of Sunni radicals in Egypt is citing the Syrian situation in its  appeal to Sunnis everywhere to support a jihad against Shi’ites

Twenty Egyptian Salafists including Mohammed al-Zawahiri, the brother  of al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri, urged Sunnis to target Hezbollah  and others involved in the fighting in the Syrian town of al-Qusair  (al-Qusayr).

“We call upon the Sunnis in general in the countries that are ruled  by the Shi’ites, and the mujahideen in particular, to target these  countries and move the battle inside them …”

Countries ruled by Shi’ites are Iran and Iraq, while Syrian President  Bashar Assad is an adherent of the Shi’ite Allawite sect. Among the  rebels fightiSyrianng him are Sunni jihadists including those belonging to the  al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front/Islamic State of Iraq (also  sometimes labeled jointly as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.)

Christianity ‘close to extinction’ in places: An Islamic Victory?

Christianity faces being wiped out of the “biblical heartlands” in the Middle East because of mounting persecution of worshippers, according to a new report.

As we wind down this year and the season of holiday cheer comes to and end, it is easy to pass by one of the biggest stories that was under reported. That being the attack on Christianity throughout much of the world. Let us keep our brothers and sisters in our prayers. Here we go:

The study warns that Christians suffer greater hostility across the world than any other religious group.

And it claims politicians have been “blind” to the extent of violence faced by Christians in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

The most common threat to Christians abroad is militant Islam, it says, claiming that oppression in Muslim countries is often ignored because of a fear that criticism will be seen as “racism”.

The report, entitled Christianophobia, highlights a fear among oppressive regimes that Christianity is a “Western creed” which can be used to undermine them.

The “lion’s share” of persecution faced by Christians arises in countries where Islam is the dominant faith, the report says, quoting estimates that between a half and two-thirds of Christians in the Middle East have left the region or been killed in the past century.

“There is now a serious risk that Christianity will disappear from its biblical heartlands,” it claims.

The report shows that “Muslim-majority” states make up 12 of the 20 countries judged to be “unfree” on the grounds of religious tolerance by Freedom House, the human rights think tank.

It catalogues hundreds of attacks on Christians by religious fanatics over recent years, focusing on seven countries: Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, Nigeria, India, Burma and China.

State hostility towards Christianity is particularly rife in China, where more Christians are imprisoned than in any other country in the world, according to the report.

Obama Administration Sides With Lebanon’s Hezbollah Over Israel in Border Dispute

Israel with Billions of Dollars worth of Gas off the Coast. We sure can’t let them have that. Of course, Obama would want the U.N. to decide the territories. Need I say more? Here tis:

According to Wikileaks documents released last December, Obama State Department officials refer to the Hezbollah terror organization as the “armed resistance.”

This is the same terror organization that fires on Israeli troops from behind 3-story buildings in residential neighborhoods.

The Obama Administration is siding with the Hezbollah-dominated Lebanese government over Israel in a recent border dispute.
Haaretz reported:

Amid rising tensions over gas reserves, Israel to submit proposal to UN on where maritime economic border with Lebanon should be over next few days; U.S. endorsed Lebanon’s proposal submitted to UN in August.

In the next few days Israel will submit to the United Nations its take on where its maritime economic border with Lebanon should be, as the two countries scramble for gas reserves estimated to be worth billions of dollars.

Israel’s position is due to be approved by the cabinet on Sunday; Jerusalem argues that Lebanon’s proposal includes major areas belonging to Israel.

Last August, Lebanon submitted to the United Nations its version of where the maritime border should be – the exclusive economic zone. In November, it submitted its version of its western border, with Cyprus.

The Lebanese proposal does not include the large Tamar and Leviathan gas prospects, operated by Delek Energy and U.S. company Noble Energy. But the National Infrastructure Ministry found that the proposal contains reserves with a potential value in the billions of dollars. Full Story over at Gateway Pundit

 Just in case you are wondering what’s going on over there. Any Questions?
