The US Senate's number two Democrat, Sen Dick Durbin (D-IL) bungled a choice for lead witness in the so-called "Muslim Discrimination" hearings, in yet another in a series of Democratic flubs that have paired top Democrats with anti-democratic, terror-excusing Islamists in the United States.

Durbin Botches So-Called
'Muslim-Discrimination' Hearings

The Daily Caller
The number two Senate Democrat, Richard Durbin, has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday to highlight claims of anti-Muslim discrimination, but his primary Muslim witness has publicly excused a US imam for revealing an FBI investigation to a Muslim suspected-terrorist.

Durbin's bungled choice for lead witness is another in a series of Democratic flubs that have paired top Democrats with anti-democratic, terror-excusing Islamists in the United States. According to a report released today by the non-profit Investigative Project on Terrorism, Durbin has already added to the flubs this year by visiting a mosque in Bridgeview, Ill., and posing for a photo with two Islamists who were named as unindicted conspirators in an Islamist project to smuggle funds to the Hamas Muslim terror group.

Hamas is an orthodox and militant Muslim terror group that controls the Gaza strip. Since it seized control in 2007, it has allowed numerous missile attacks on Israeli civilian targets and it has established an apartheid-like system of laws that cite Koranic texts to justify formal and informal discrimination and abuse against women, gays and Christians.

According to the IPT's report, Durbin's meeting with the Hamas-linked Muslims took place at the Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview, Ill. The mosque's website shows a picture, dated March 1, of Durbin posing with nine suited men, and two women wearing dark-coveralls and tight white scarves. The men include the mosque's director, Jamal Said, and the mosque's imam, Kifah Mustapha, according to the IPT report.

Both men were declared to be unindicted conspirators in the 2008 Holy Land Fund trial, which resulted in guilty verdicts for five men who smuggled $12 million to Hamas. The fund's two founders were both sentenced to 65 years in jail.

In the federal documents submitted to the court, Mustapha was included in the list of "individuals who were HLF employees, directors, officers and/or representatives." In June 2010, the Illinois government denied Mustapha the title of police chaplain, even though he completed the four-day course.

In the court document, Jamal Said is named as an individual "who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood's Palestine Committee and/or its organizations." The Palestine Committee was established by Islamists as a Hamas advocacy group prior to 1991, according to government sources cited in another IPT report.

A 2004 article in the Chicago Tribune reported that moderates lost control of the mosque to the Islamists following an internal power struggle.

Durbin and several other Democratic politicians, and their staff members, have gotten themselves into trouble by endorsing little-known Muslims from Islamist groups within the party's diverse base. The base also includes groups advocating for gays, women and Jews.
