Barack Hussein Obama's Indebtedness To Extremist Islam

By Daniel Pipes

The title of the article is : Would Obama Pass a Standard Security Clearance?

I have posted on this I thnk last week but this one is by Daniel Pipes and is excellent and has another take on it too with added information that is really good to know. ---- Wild Thing

With Colin Powell now repeating the lie that Barack Obama has "always been a Christian," despite new information further confirming Obama's Muslim childhood (such as the Indonesian school registration listing him as Muslim), one watches with dismay as the Democratic candidate manages to hide the truth on this issue.

Instead, then, let us review a related subject – Obama's connections and even indebtedness, throughout his career, to extremist Islam. Specifically, he has longstanding, if indirect ties to two institutions, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), listed by the U.S. government in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding trial; and the Nation of Islam (NoI), condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for its "consistent record of racism and anti-Semitism."

Kenny Gamble, or Luqman Abdul-Haqq, "amir" of the United Muslim Movement.

Louis Farrakhan, who calls Obama "the Messiah."

First, Obama's ties to Islamists:

The Khalid al-Mansour connection: According to former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton, Al-Mansour "was raising money for" Obama's expenses at Harvard Law School. Al-Mansour, a black American (né Don Warden), became advisor to Saudi prince Al-Walid bin Talal, CAIR's largest individual donor. Al-Mansour holds standard Islamist views: he absolves the Islamist government in Sudan of sponsoring slavery, he denies a Jewish tie to Jerusalem, and he wrote a booklet titled "Americans Beware! The Zionist Plot Against S. Arabia." (Both Obama and al-Mansour deny Sutton's account.)
The Kenny Gamble (also known as Luqman Abdul-Haqq) connection: Gamble, a once-prominent pop music producer, cut the ribbon to the Obama campaign headquarters housed in a south Philadelphia building he owns. Gamble is an Islamist who buys large swaths of real estate in Philadelphia to create a Muslim-only residential area. Also, as the self-styled "amir" of the United Muslim Movement, he has many links to Islamist organizations, including CAIR and the Muslim Alliance in North America. (MANA's "amir" is Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.)
The Mazen Asbahi connection: The Obama campaign's first Muslim outreach coordinator resigned after it came to light that he had served on the board of a subsidiary of the Saudi-sponsored North American Islamic Trust, with Jamal Said, another unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Hamas funding trial. Asbahi has ties to CAIR's Chicago and Detroit offices, to the Islamic Society of North America, yet another unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas funding trial, and to other Islamist organizations.
The Minha Husaini connection: The campaign's second Muslim outreach coordinator has an Islamist background, having served as an intern in the Muslim Public Service Network. Immediately upon her appointment by Obama, she met with a group of about thirty Muslims including such notorious figures as CAIR's Nihad Awad; the Muslim American Society's Mahdi Bray, who has publicly supported the Hamas and Hezbollah terrorist groups; and Johari Abdul Malik of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Va., who has advised American Muslims: "You can blow up bridges, but you cannot kill people who are innocent on their way to work."

Second, Obama's ties to the Nation of Islam:

Obama's long-time donor and ally Antoin "Tony" Rezko partnered for nearly three decades with Jabir Herbert Muhammad, a son of NoI leader Elijah Muhammad, and says he gave Jabir and his family "millions of dollars over the years." Rezko also served as executive director of the Muhammad Ali Foundation, a rogue organization that, without Ali's permission, exploited the name of this CAIR awardee.

Jeremiah Wright, Obama's esteemed pastor for twenty years, came out of a Nation background, recently he accepted protection from an NoI security detail, and has praised Louis Farrakhan, the NoI's leader, as one of the "giants of the African American religious experience." Wright's church celebrated Farrakhan for his having "truly epitomized greatness."

Farrakhan himself endorsed Obama, calling him "the hope of the entire world," "one who can lift America from her fall," and even "the Messiah."

That Obama's biography touches so frequently on such unsavory organizations as CAIR and the Nation of Islam should give pause. How many of politicians have a single tie to either group, much less seven of them? John McCain charitably calls Obama "a person you do not have to be scared [of] as president of the United States," but Obama's multiple links to anti-Americans and subversives mean he would fail the standard security clearance process for Federal employees.

Islamic aggression represents America's strategic enemy; Obama's many insalubrious connections raise grave doubts about his fitness to serve as America's commander-in-chief.

Wild Thing's comment..........

I don't think I will ever understand why information like this does not matter to people deciding who to vote for. Including all the other things we have found out about Obama.

Can there be so many in our country that are pro Muslim, or pro terrorists? The media, most of it anyway had mocked the information about Ayers and the terrorists groups that have endorsed Obama and his money coming in from very questionable groups against America.

Are we overrun by Socialists and communists or just totally determined people to remain ignorant.

There is something inside of me that thinks that many of those saying they will vote for Obama will stand there in the voting booth and just before they mark Obama's name will have a gut wrenching second thought of the facts they have heard, the doubt it has put in their minds, the knowledge that America HAS been the best, most awesome country in the entire world....... and then they will see there is no way they can vote for this phone, liar, communist wanna be dictator whose idea of change is from Capitalism and land of the free and home of the brave to Socialism and communism, and people being terrified to say what their thoughts are for fear of being arrested.

America is awesome and there is a strength to her, we have fought off things before and this may be a HUGE one this time, we can do it and must never give up.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

I have a bedspread and drapes that match that tie and hanky Daddy F has on.

Seriously, and I know I'm not alone here, the failure of the mainstream media to bring it on home how detrimental to our core beliefs and constitutional health it is that we drive these radicals out of our government from the community level up, has to be the most frustrating event I have ever seen them participate in. They are leading the lemmings down the garden path to jump off the cliff.

So much damage has already been done. There will be problems THANKS TO THE MSM ASSHOLES AND TRAITORS possibly for decades no matter who wins.

Barney Frank's little diddy (not to be confused with P. Diddy--but equally as ridiculous) about how we will need to ignore the deficit and spend spend spend, increase government, and raise taxes on those bastard very rich (who can afford to just move the hell out of America now, thanks for the warning) was just a way to start programming that idea in the heads of the sheeple. "We want to control you, we want your property if you have any, but don't worry, we'll tax those bastard very rich so we can take care of you--all you can eat mud pies for everyone!"

When I was born, my parents were Catholic so I was a Catholic. Later on in live I became a Baptist. When my son was born, he was a Baptist because I was a Baptist.

Whenever a child is born, whatever religion the parents are, that's what the child is. Obama's mother was an Athiest but his father was a Muslim. Therefore since his mother didn't claim any religion, Obama would be a Muslim.

Also, we're told that Obama converted to Christianity. To convert to Christianity you would have had to been something else first.

Here's a good piece on his conversion and Muslim law.

I know this isn't proof that he is a muzzie, but I have suspected for awhile that obama is a closet muslim. His ties to Louis Fairycan, and this other nut case are chilling enough. He helped organize the million man march along with Fairycan and his pastor Wright, who is now hiding under obama's bus, has awarded Fairycan, with some bogus award, dreamed up in wright's basement.

Tell me I'm dreaming, and when I wake up I will realize this is a new book by Tom Clancy, this can't be real. I mean this whole thing is the stuff of a good spy-thriller. And their are enough blinded Americans to go along with this. Just enough to scare the hell out of the people who can see through this maze of deceit.

When you look at this whole scheme, it is really right out in the open and not really hidden. These reports have been out there for quite awhile and just as sure as the sun comes up in the morning, the main stream media has been trying to bury it. The press thinks we are the stupid ones.

Does the press really believe that obama is going to take care of them once he starts to implement his plan to take over the country. Does the New york times really believe they will even exist once the New Order is in effect. Since they are the media elites they will be the first to go to the gulags.

Proof of this is in the story of Joe the Plumber. The obama campaign is investigating him as if he were public enemy number one. Who do they think they are. He was encouraged to ask Mookie Obama a question, when he did, thats when everythng started to fall apart. The Obama people are bashing him, they have gotten the Plumbers Union to berate him, If they do win, Poor Joe will be first in line for the gate opening of the new gulag in Toledo. Right after they lock up the press and just before they ban our guns.

The more I learn about this POS, the more convinced I am the democrat party and their benefactor George Soros is the real enemy of this country.

They have been planning this for the past 40 years. J.Edgar Hoover was right, we should have destroyed them then. It will be much more difficult now, but not impossible.

When we vote, we win.

It was on FOX yesterday that Ahmed Yousef a chief political spokesman for Hamas has said that as soon as B. Hussein wins they will send him a letter of congratulations and also what he should do in the mideast. Also that Biden is someone that they can count on to do the right thing. Terrorist advisors for B. Hussein? I don't have a link. I posted this yesterday.

Bob says: "Also, we're told that Obama converted to Christianity. To convert to Christianity you would have had to been something else first."

OMgosh that is so obviously true, thanks for putting that out.

Posted by: Eden at October 22, 2008 08:54 AM

Obama just has too many associations with muslims in his background to not think that he is one. Maybe that is what is meant by "The One".

I am more angry with the media for covering up all these radical links. The evidence is too blatant to not see Obama's ties with so many anti Americans. I wonder if the media types ever think their liberal agenda could be the road to their own loss of journalistic freedom.

I sure hope you're right and that people will do a gut-check before pulling the lever for Obama.

There was a comment I read in a small town newspaper that had an ominous tone to it. If W's european detractors wish to have him brought before the world court on war crimes charges, BHO would probably hand him over. McCain, of course, would tell them to get hosed.
Obama is like a big, floaty turd that you just can't seem to flush.

O'Vomit should be considered a terrorist and dealt with accordingly

My spouse and I are both descended from Judah, the line of King David, so we should be Jewish by our ancestry, but through time, I was born to a Jewish, Lutheran, Catholic mother and Roman Catholic father. I am a Christian who enjoys learning about the other religions, but I make my own traditions, too. I am baptised Catholic by the now Cardinal Bernardin out of Chicago.
But in Obamanation's world, will my daughters be able to pray in our Christian world and have the peace of knowing the Allmighty God and believing in someone bigger than themselves, the Lord Jesus Christ, who died for ALL of us?
Will my grandchildren have the freedom to choose? I hope so. Religion is very important in my family and I don't want to give it up now.

Eden, well that is beautiful. Not on him but what you said....."I have a bedspread and drapes that match that tie and hanky Daddy F has on."

"They are leading the lemmings down the garden path to jump off the cliff."...they sure are and people sit there and hear what the media tells them like on CNN and nod their heads thinking every word is true. And meanwhile they are being lied to and loaded with propaganda.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 22, 2008 07:28 PM

BobF, I agree, to convert you have to be something first. Thanks for the link too.

Also his own half brother said Obama is a Muslim and others have said so as well.

His life would be in danger if he really converted, at least that is what history tells us.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 22, 2008 07:32 PM

Mark, I am a huge fan of Tom Clancy's books and I wish all of this was a new book of his.

I agree about his being a Muslim too. Even if it is a closet Muslim which is hitting the nail on it's head I think. He may be more obvious about it if he wins.

Yes, Joe the Plumber should be an example to all citizens just how horrible, how low these Obama and his people will go to try and destroy anyone that simply asks a question Obama does not like.

To have socialism, communisim and marxism they have to be able to silence those that do not agree and this sure shows how they try to do this.

It is so important to vote.

Bob, thank you for the information. WOW!

I am so glad you posted about it and told us here too. Thank you Bob.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 22, 2008 07:47 PM

Tom, that is what has really shocked me. I never saw the media this bad, this one sided, like they are a part of Obama's campaign. It makes me sick to my stomach how they have been right from the beginning.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 22, 2008 07:50 PM

Miss Chris, I hope so too.
If I am wrong it will be all of our country that will suffer if these people do not wake up before they vote.

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 22, 2008 07:54 PM

Jim, thank you so much, that is really important, that is haunting and I believe Obama would do that. One of the things about Obama is he has no respect for the actuall office of the President. George W. could have gone after Bill Clinton for all his "gates" and crimes and he did not. I asked why one time and someone said to me, because it is wrong for one President to take down another even if he did crimes. It has to do with the respect for the actual office of the president and not the person that held that office.

But Obama has none of this. He respects nothing about our country. He wants to change it into socialism hell or even worse. And his thugs and threats he has done to people is remarkable that a candidate would have that kind of nerve, it shows how dangerous Obama truly is...imo.

cuchieddie, I agree a thousand percent!!!!

Posted by: Wild Thing at October 22, 2008 08:04 PM

Lynn, thank you for sharing about that, I hope and pray nothing changes and we will never have to be concerned with the freedoms we have had. Religion, our faith is important and I think a part of why we have such a great country. I love the In God We Trust and even that I would be very upset to see even that disappear.
