Skip to comments.OBAMA'S INAUGURATION PRAYER WILL BE GIVEN BY TERROR LINKED GROUP PRES

Of all the clergy in America ..... why her?
Obama invites Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood linked ISNA to offer prayer at inauguration. ISNA was an unindicted co-conspirator in the same Hamas funding case that named CAIR as a Muslim Brotherhood group - in the same Brotherhood document that speaks of its goal of destroying Western civilization from within. (more)
Creeping Sharia has more:
A prayer will be offered at the National Cathedral by Ingrid Mattson, the first woman president of the Islamic Society of North America, according to an official who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information. The Islamic Society, based in Indiana, is the nations largest Muslim group. Source: AP
In ISNA Admits Hamas Ties, previously classified details on ISNAs Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood connections are revealed:
In its latest filing before the federal district court in Dallas on behalf of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and its affiliate organization, the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) in the Hamas-terrorism financing case, the ACLU has made a noteworthy admission.
Rather than deny that there is copious evidence tying ISNA and NAIT to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, the brief argues that such evidence is merely dated. In a curious footnote on page 7, the reply states:
Assuming the authenticity of documents dates, the most recent documents to mention either ISNA or NAIT are dated 1991, Gov. Exhs. 3-3 and 3-85, but the majority of the documents are older. Almost all of the numerous exhibits that purport to show financial transactions and that contain any mention of ISNA or NAIT are dated 1988 and 1989 (there are two dated 1990), almost a decade before the majority of the overt acts the government alleges in support of its conspiracy charges against the HLF defendants.
So ISNA and NAIT are not saying that the documents tying their organizations to Hamas are inauthentic, but that the problem with the evidence is just that it is old.
Obama is quite fond of ISNA, an unindicted co-conspirator to a convicted terrorist funding organization, HLF, and previously invited Mattson to preside over an interfaith event at the Democratic National Convention. More on Ingrid Mattson in Her Own Words.

Maybe he’s trying to get on Osama’s good side.....gag)
Aww man, don’t you know who Osama-Obama’s friends are by now?
Unbelievable what this woman has stated here: “The first duty of Muslims in America, therefore, is to help shape American policies so they are in harmony with the essential values of this country. Indeed, the American Constitution, like foundational religious texts, can be read in many different ways. The true values of America are those which we decide to embrace as our own. There is no guarantee, therefore, that Americans will rise to the challenge of defining themselves as an ethical nation; nevertheless, given the success of domestic struggles for human dignity and rights in the twentieth century, we can be hopeful.”
I wasn’t aware that, “In the realm of foreign policy, this “idealistic” view has been out of fashion for some time.”
I didn’t know values changed with the fashion. Too bad this woman doesn’t understand VIRTUE. ;-/
“...the American Constitution, like foundational religious texts, can be read in many different ways”
This woman is a dangerous JOKE!
God Help us.
given the success of domestic struggles for human dignity and rights in the twentieth century, we can be hopeful.â
How many prayers is he going to have? First Rick Warren, then some gay guy, now this person?
What we need to do is totally boycott watching the Coronation and have a national prayer event, praying for God to bless and Defend the People of the United States. And the Free World.

(Quote)"Like the Jewish legal tradition, Islamic law is a conversation represented in dynamic and diverse schools of thought. Edward N. Luttwak speaks of an essentialized Islamic law that does not exist.
Nevertheless, there is no dispute among Muslims that Islam is not an ethnic affiliation, nor is it passed through the gene pool. A Muslim parent is morally responsible for raising his or her child within Islam; children, for their part, have no legal culpability. There is no legal obligation by a child to affiliate with the Muslim community.
Islam does not consider Barack Obama ever to have been part of the Muslim community. Apostasy has no relevance here.

Why do people not think this guy is a muslim? It’s so obvious. Haven’t seen that WH dog yet, either.
If people want on or off this list, please let me know.
In God We Trust.
I wasn’t planning on inflicting that on myself.
I never was big on making myself throw up.
Personally I think she had a weak identity and becoming a Muslim makes her “somebody” or gives her an identity that she didn't have before. She's a passive aggressive cipher.
Any Westerner who converts to Islam is looking for an identity and wants to be “special” when they were zero's before.
Oh great, so Ingrid and Gene Robinson?
Anyway he can dig up Judas while he’s at it.
I guess the Hindus will drag the two foot monkey god in too.
Yep, I guess all previous presidents had a muslim prayer... why are the libs so quiet, church and state... remember? Maybe a satanist and atheist will do their thing as well. Maybe a few trees, instead of columns, for the druids and even a reborn doll.
Kidding... I hope. Yep, change.

Mattson was born in 1963 in Ontario, Canada, to Roman Catholic parents. She abandoned her Christian faith as a teenager. In the 1980s she attended the University of Waterloo, Ontario, where she studied philosophy. There she befriended a group of Muslims and converted to Islam.
Following her graduation in 1987, Mattson relocated to Pakistan, where she worked with Afghan refugee women. In 1995 she served as an advisor to the Afghan delegation to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. In 1999 she earned her Ph.D. in Islamic Studies from the University of Chicago.
Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it Islam does not intend to confine this revolution to a single State or a few countries; the aim of Islam is to bring about a universal revolution.
In 2001 Mattson was elected Vice President of ISNA; five years later she was elected President.
No, its not true to characterize Wahhabism that way. This is not a sect. It is the name of a reform movement that began 200 years ago to rid Islamic societies of cultural practices and rigid interpretation that had acquired over the centuries. It really was analogous to the European Protestant Reformation . [T]he Saudi scholars who are Wahhabi have denounced terrorism and denounced in particular the acts of September 11.
In 2002 Mattson authored a chapter, titled Stopping Oppression: an Islamic Obligation, in the book September 11: Religious Perspectives on the Causes and Consequences. She wrote:
Muslims perceive that Israeli aggression against Palestinians continues without American sanction; indeed, enormous financial and military support for Israel has continued. It seems that any Palestinian resistance to Israeli occupation is termed terrorism, and is responded to with overwhelming force. The result is the Palestinians themselves are increasingly showing less restraint in the force they employ to defend their families and lands.
Mattson went on to condemn American foreign policy as a force of evil not only in the Middle East, but all over the world:
The American government has not criticized sufficiently the brutality of the Israeli government, believing that it needs to be supportive of the Jewish state. The result is that oppression, left unchecked, can increase to immense proportions, until the oppressed are smothered with hopelessness and rage . So often we have to tell other Muslims throughout the world, that America is not as bad as it appears. We tell them, These policies (support for oppressive governments, enforcement of sanctions against Iraq, lack of support for Palestinians) contradict the true values of America The critical situation we find ourselves living in today is the result, to a great extent, of allowing injustice and oppression to continue unchecked.
In a September 2002 interview with PBS, Mattson stated that she did not see any difference between Christian leaders criticizing Islam or al Qaeda on the one hand, and Osama bin Laden citing Islamic theology to justify violence against Americans on the other. That is, she believed that the Christians were inciting terrorism in a manner not unlike bin Laden.
Riiight, and mooses don't lie either. Yeah, you wish we were that stupid. Why suggest she move to a more non judgmental country, say Iran. Bye-bye
Who's available and can they bring in votes. Next time round.
In PEBO’s peculiar thinking, he will have a knuckle-dragging Christian fundie, a gay bishop, and a radical Muslim takfiri doing that, you know, religious crap. That way he is covered on all sides. Peas be upon him.
