on the Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration
Huma Abedin is Anthony Weiner’s wife. She was also Hillary’s Chief of Staff when Hillary was Secretary of State. This is from a story nearly one year ago, when four Congressmen and one Congresswoman called into question the service of at least five people with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration. In all fairness, Brotherhood influence did not begin with Obama, but he has certainly embraced it, in both words and actions.
From the link below, which also has an embedded doc which can be downloaded here. Some excerpts:
In recent days, a torrent of criticism has been directed at Representatives Michele Bachmann, Trent Franks, Louie Gohmert, Tom Rooney and Lynn Westmoreland. These legislators had the te- merity to ask five federal inspectors general last June whether individuals with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (or Ikhwan in Arabic) are using their access to the Obama administration to influence its policies towards the Brotherhood and the Islamist agenda, both in this country and elsewhere. The members of Congress cited a recent study by the Center for Security Policy that showed, for example, that Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, “has three family members– her late father, her mother and her brother connected to Muslim Brotherhood operatives and/or organizations,” and asked for an investigation into whether such associations are affecting U.S. government policies.
The rise of these Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers in elite American policy circles tells the story of the success of the Brotherhood in its stealth jihad against this country. This stealth jihad proceeds through the slow motion infiltration of social, cultural and political institutions rather than the ramming of planes into skyscrapers, but with the same ultimate objective: destroying American society.
This is not a goal shared by most American Muslims, who are loyal to this country and its secular society and regard their Islamic faith as a religious rather than an ideological commitment. But agents of organizations such as the Muslim Brotherhood have another agenda that is spelled out in chilling detail in an internal Muslim Brotherhood document by a top Muslim Brotherhood operative, Mohamed Akram, that was seized by the FBI in Virginia in 2004. This 18 page document is dated 1991. Among its sinister calls to action is its urging that: The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in [sic] eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within, and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers, so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
This document listed 29 likeminded organizations of our friends that shared the goal of making the U.S. friendly to the Brotherhood’s Islamist objectives by presenting Islam as a civilization alternative. Among these organizations doing the Muslim Brotherhood’s work today are the Muslim Students Association and the Islamic Society of North America.
The rise of Abedin and others with Brotherhood ties to positions of influence in the U.S. illuminates the long march of Islamism through American political institutions. But it also tells another story that of the Obama administration’s purposeful efforts to blur the bright line between Muslims who are good citizens and committed to our democratic government and its individual freedoms and those whose loyalty is ultimately to an Islamic supremacism that seeks to govern every aspect of our social life the economic, financial, social, political, military, familial, and dietary as well as issues of crime-and-punishment and even matters of hygiene.
This is the Sharia system. Its advocates dream of an Islamist conquest of the West by infiltration from within and attack from without; by the word and the sword. The future they envision has only one obstacle in its way: American constitutional democracy in all of its expressions; freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, equality between men and women, equality between Muslims and non-Muslims, and Western notions of personal liberty. This is why neutralizing America’s foreign policy as well as its vibrant social and political culture is their obsessive quest.
The rationale for the Islamist worldview is provided by the violent demagoguery of Wahhabi and Salafist mullahs. But the political strategy is provided by the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is not a largely secular umbrella organization. It is not moderate. It is the vanguard of a revolutionary, ideological mass movement. It is sophisticated, patient, and determined. It has spent almost 90 years building its reserves, seeding America and the West with its representatives, and biding its time. Seizing the opportunity in the Middle East offered by the Arab Spring, it obviously believes that its time is now.
How well it has succeeded in America is indicated by the portraits that follow of moderate Muslims, with Huma Abedin foremost among them, who have found a home and work station in the administration of Barack Obama. It is a story with clear parallels in the infiltration of the U.S. government by individuals seeking to advance the objectives of Soviet communism in the 1930s and 1940s. America awoke to the dangers of that subversive activity and cleaned its governmental house of these agents. Will it be able to act in the same forthright way to blunt the influence of agents of Islamism who do their work protected by multiculturalism and religious freedom?
