It all started a few months after Obama was elected the first time, when dots began to form a pattern. While I have been blogging for close to 10 years now, for the past 4 or 5 years I have been focusing on Islam and how politicians and the media try to claim that Islam is a peaceful religion. I have to wonder, when one has to keep trying to prove they're peaceful...
There is much to be said about Islam, which is considered a religion by most, but this isn't an expose about a religion or necessarily the Islamic ideology, although explanations will be given throughout. This is the accumulation of a little over 3 years' worth of researching, reading and investigating hundreds of dots that finally were beginning to connect, but still leaving an incomplete picture.
While I've been trying to form a comprehensive expose out of all the different findings for the past few months, Walid Shoebat published one of his latest stories which was what prompted me to get this done once and for all. I know others with much more experience and better resources than I, have been working on similar theories which show that Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and others in our government not only have close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood but have been actively working in the Middle East and North Africa to align those nations with Sunni Muslims to bring those nations into a Caliphate, and also to bring Sharia law to the US.
Back in May 2011, I wrote a sarcastic dissection of a speech given by Obama about the so-called Arab Spring. The more dots connecting Obama with his preference of Islam over America became much clearer during this speech when talking about people in countries such as Tunisia, Egypt and Israel; only he was talking about the Palestinian struggle, not the Israelis. He mentioned Iran, not of the powerful demonstrations which showed the brutal regime murdering citizens in the streets of Tehran but of the "illicit nuclear program, and its sponsorship of terror" of the regime. "So in the months ahead, America must use all our influence to encourage reform in the region... We look forward to working with all who embrace genuine and inclusive democracy...Because democracy depends not only on elections, but also strong and accountable institutions, and respect for the rights of minorities."
Yet looking back on the past few years of incredible upheavals in the Middle East and North African nations, we can see that Obama and his administration have done nothing of the sort. They have forcibly removed soft dictators and either propped up new tyrants who fell into the Sunni Muslim groups Obama is so familiar with, or left the nation fledgling with no leadership at all.
Since there are so many connections of American political ties to the Middle East, the purpose of this article is to first introduce the players and then show how their involvement in the Middle East has been undermining not just America's Constitution, Sovereignty and compromising the safety of US citizens, but also those of Middle Eastern and North African nations and their stability.
Barack Obama & Bill and Hillary Clinton Have Ties
with the Muslim Brotherhood & Other Known Terrorists
When one thinks of 'guilt by association', one can't convict in a court of law a person simply for associating with criminals. There has to be proof that the association also involves criminal activity. In many cases, evidence is proven to be hearsay, or circumstantial and inadmissible, but in the court of public opinion, people can decide for themselves just how close ties exist between associates.
The Bible has a lot to say about association as well, so there must be something important to be learned, that one can tell the character a person by the company he or she keeps. Much was written about Obama's past association with people like Weather Underground domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, his pastor of 20 years Jeremiah Wright and many others he has surrounded himself with. Most of these stories were of course mocked by the progressive media, and those of us who were pointing out how Obama was still surrounding himself with known radicals and Marxists were using typical deflecting tactics, labeling us as right wingers, tea baggers or as being indoctrinated by "faux" news.
Obama didn't just happen to find Marxist friends to associate with, he purposely went seeking them out. People might not understand or care who he has 'hung out' with, nor may they care that his family is comprised of Marxist, communist, and Islamic with terrorist ties. Too many it seems never cared, because if they cared about our nation, a man like this never would have been elected President in the first place. Perhaps it's been the slow conditioning which has been happening in our nation as more times in the past 20 years and longer, the progressive envelope has been pushed further and further- reminding me of the story of the frog in boiling water. If you turn the heat up too fast, the frog will find it too hot and jump out of the pot, but do it gradually, the frog won't notice, he'll be conditioned to handle the heat. At least until he's boiled. Our nation is close to being boiled.
Let's Focus First on Bill & Hillary Clinton
I'll forgo much of the known personal biographies of them, and look at again, companions and associations. When one considers Hillary Clinton's ties with Islam, Huma Abedin is the first who comes to mind. Huma Abedin has been with the Clintons since Bill was President. Abedin, a practicing Muslim who speaks fluent Arabic and grew up in Saudi Arabia, began working for Clinton as a White House intern in 1996, eventually becoming Hillary's traveling chief of staff during her campaign for the 2008 Democrat presidential nomination. She is the daughter of an Islamic scholar, her father was from India and her mother, a sociologist and a highly respected professor in Saudi Arabia, was from Pakistan. She was born in Michigan, but the family moved to Saudi Arabia when she was 2. She moved back to the United States to attend George Washington University. When she began as a Whitehouse intern, she was assigned as Hillary's office in 1996 and the two have been tight ever since. Abedin is so close with the Clintons that when she married Anthony Weiner, Bill Clinton officiated their wedding.
While working with Hillary, Abedin was described as ever-present assistant and gatekeeper, who oversaw planning and scheduling and advised on politics and policy, especially the Middle East.
In June 2012, when she returned from maternity leave, Abedin left her position of Deputy of Staff, continued to work for Clinton, but was given leave so she could also do consultant work with private clients while still employed as a top advisor to then Secretary of State Clinton. Although government officials are required to release information about any significant sources of income, Abedin never disclosed information about the arrangement or how much income she earned on her financial report. She worked at the State Department, yet in the last half of 2012, she also worked for the consulting firm Teneo, which was founded by Doug Band, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton and she also served as a consultant to the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation, which has received upwards of 25 million in donations from Saudi Arabia (more on the Clinton Foundation & CGI later).
Now none of these proves anything but the fact that Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin have a close relationship. Does Huma really have ties with terrorists and what about her time growing up in Saudi Arabia? Apparently some in Congress had enough to question whether or not she does, because Michele Bachmann and some other Congress members asked federal officials to investigate whether Abedin was using her influence on US policy toward the Muslim Brotherhood. Many in congress vilified Bachmann and the others, especially some from the Republican side. Senator John McCain called the inquiry an attack which was made "without concern for fact or fairness."
Well Senator, let's see what the facts are and whether or not this matters to US national security.
As mentioned, Huma's mother is Saleha Mahmood Abedin, who is a pro-Sharia sociologist with ties to numerous Islamist organizations including the Muslim Brotherhood. She was a Board member of the International Islamic Council for Dawa and Relief (whose secretary-general is Abdullah Omar Naseef, an Islamic extremist with ties to al Qaeda, served as Secretary General of the Muslim World League from 1983-93 and also founder of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) of which Saleha Abedin is editor and chief of their journal and was for a time on the board of directors) and she is a Founding member of the Muslim Sisterhood also known as the International Women's Organization (IWO), the women's division of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Sisterhood is an organization made up of wives of prominent Brotherhood members, including Nagla Ali Mahmoud, wife of Egyptian's ex interim dictator, Muslim Brotherhood member Mohammed Morsi. It's interesting that Hillary Clinton along with Obama both were instrumental in propping up Morsi and helping him come to power after calling for the removal of Egyptian President Mubarak who only had another 8 months before the next elections.
Huma Abedin's mother isn't the only one who bears more scrutiny; her brother Hassan Abedin was a board member with the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS) in England with Muslim Brotherhood members, again, Abdullah Omar Naseef who also founded the Rabita Trust, which was included in the first post-9/11 list of al-Qaeda supporters. Naseef is also chairman of the board of OCIS along with Yousuf al-Qaradawi who is considered to be one of the most influential Muslim scholars who just happens to support Palestinian suicide bombings and has denounced both Israel and the US while issuing fatwas supporting jihad. This guy is into everything. He is chairman of the IslamOnline website, which has published numerous anti-Semitic, anti-Israel articles and supports violence against non-Muslims. He is considered chairman of the board of trustees at the Michigan-based Islamic American University (IAU), a subsidiary of the Muslim American Society (MAS) which has stated that the 9/11 attacks is the fault of American foreign policy. He is also president of the Union of Good, a Saudi-based organization representing Islamic fundraising groups worldwide, and which has for years, transferred tens of millions of dollars directly to Hamas. In 1990 al-Qaradawi went to Algeria, where he was chairman of the Islamic Scientific Council at the Islamic University and Higher Institutions until 1991. He then returned to Qatar and was appointed director of the Seerah and Sunnah Center at Qatar University, a post he still has now. He was a board of directors member with the Islamic Society of Boston from 1998-2000, whose founder and first president was Abdurahman Alamoudi who was a strong supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah, and eventually was imprisoned for charges relating to terrorism.
So here we have a woman who at one time had a very important and sensitive position in one of the highest offices of the US government, and who is still the closest confidant of the woman who may be running for the Presidency, whose mother and brother both have heavy ties with the Brotherhood and other Islamic extremist groups.
But wait, there's more. It was reported back in 2012 by Walid Shoebat that Huma's sister Heba Abedin is also connected and had served on the Editorial Board of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) as an Assistant Editor, under the name Heba A. Khaled. Remember, the founder of the IMMA Abdullah Omar Naseef, is an Islamic extremist with ties to al Qaeda.
