Posted on 02/07/2008 5:09:23 PM PST by indcons
With its similarity to popular online sites such as Facebook and MySpace and its links to a network of grassroots blogs, Barack Obama’s campaign website has been hailed as a testament to the candidate’s transformative politics. But at least part of the senator’s online outreach, “Muslim Americans for Obama ’08,” proposes installing Muslim prayer areas in public places and giving Muslims time off for prayer and has denounced Obama’s colleagues in the U.S. Senate who happen to be Jewish. This segment of Obama's online outreach also has ties to unindicted co-conspirators in terror trials and has recruited Obama supporters from among the ranks of fundamentalist Muslim extremists.
On the blog, which is attached to BarackObama.com, viewers can read about “the Senate pro-Israeli zionist hawk Joe Lieberman,” as well as criticism aimed at Obama himself for getting too cozy with the Israeli lobby. As stated on the blog, that last part was derived from information found on Electronic Intifada (EI), a terror apologist website based in Chicago, Illinois, Obama’s hometown. According to the site’s co-founder, Ali Abunimah, Senator Obama once told him, regarding Abunimah’s anti-American and anti-Israel writings, to “Keep up the good work!”
While the Muslim Americans for Obama ’08 blog is hosted by Obama’s website, it is actually part of another site that goes by the same name, located at muslimsforobama08.com. The registered agent for the site is Zakiyah Omar, a women’s costume designer from Jacksonville, Florida. Omar has been involved in the Obama campaign since December 2006 (She has had the site since February ’07). She too has her own blog hosted by the official Obama website.
On the Muslim Americans for Obama ’08 site, one will find a list of upcoming events, issues and solutions, details on how to join, a links section to sites of interest, and of course, a link to the blog. There’s even a toll-free number to call for more information.
Within the events section, a number of the listings pertain to conferences and conventions being sponsored by organizations that have a number of troubling ties. One is the 44th Annual ISNA National Convention, held in Rosemont, Illinois.
ISNA or the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) was recently named an “Unindicted Co-conspirator” for a Dallas trial that dealt with the funding of millions of dollars to Hamas. Beginning in December 2003, ISNA was the subject of a Senate investigation into the financing of terror groups overseas. The group currently uses its website to propagate violent hatred against Jews and Christians.
Another of the events listed is the 32nd ICNA-MAS Convention, held in Hartford, Connecticut. ICNA or the Islamic Circle of North America, in August 2006, was the top donor to a Pakistani charity that, at the time, had given $99,000 to the head of Hamas, Khaled Mashaal. Four people associated with the ICNA-related ‘Houston Taliban’ were arrested and charged with jihad training with firearms, for the purpose of joining the Taliban to attack Americans overseas.
MAS or the Muslim American Society, like ISNA, uses the web to spread violent hatred against non-Muslims. In April 2004, MAS’s Communications Director, Randall Todd “Ismail” Royer, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for his activities within the ‘Virginia Jihad Network,’ a group that was conspiring with Laskar-e-Taiba (LeT) to attack Americans and Indians abroad.
Yet another event listing is the 2007 MANA National Convention, held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. MANA or the Muslim Alliance in North America was founded in May of 2000, in response to the arrest of cop killer H. Rap Brown, a.k.a. Jamil Al-Amin. The President (Amir) of the organization is Siraj Wahhaj, an individual that was named by the U.S. government an “Unindicted Co-conspirator” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
According to Muslim Americans for Obama ’08, it took part in “VOTER REGISTRATION/INFORMATION BOOTHS,” at each of the above venues. Taking that into consideration, since Muslim Americans for Obama ’08 is officially part of the Barack Obama for President team – or as the campaign puts it, “Community” – one can conclude that Senator Obama and/or his campaign had sanctioned its attendance at these events.
Further troubling are the following “Issues & Solutions” on the site: Institute a Law to allow Muslim Employees to take an hour off from work for Friday Jummah Prayer. Make the 2 Eid’s recognized National Holidays on Calendars with days off from work. Provide prayer areas suitable for Salah and Jummah, in public and private facilities. (i.e. Malls, Airports, Universities and government buildings.)
Found on the right side of the website’s homepage are a series of links, most of which deal with information about Senator Obama and the campaign. One of them, though, is a link to Aswat Al-Islam, a radical Islamic multimedia outlet. Muslim Americans for Obama ’08 lists it as “Quran (Audio) English Translation.”
Aswat Al-Islam features the works of such Islamist luminaries as: “Uninidicted Co-conspirators” of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, Siraj Wahhaj and Bilal Philips; anti-Christian bigot, Ahmed Deedat; pro-wife beating author, Jamal Badawi; suicide bombing supporter, Yusuf Al-Qaradawi; and the chief cleric of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, who has called for the murders of Jews, Christians and Americans and has described Jews as “the scum of the human race, the rats of the world, the killers of prophets, and the grandsons of monkeys and pigs,” Abdul Rahman Al-Sudais.
According to Muslim Americans for Obama ’08, Senator Barack Obama “is the BEST candidate for the job in 2008.” But being the best candidate should have as a requisite keeping company that is worthy of respect. Recently, Obama has been cited for having a racist and anti-Israel pastor, Jeremiah Wright, and a campaign advisor that has expressed sympathy for Hamas and Hezbollah, Robert Malley.
If Sen. Obama truly is worthy of the presidency of the United States, he should publicly distance himself from these extremist groups and individuals. And if he does not want his campaign to be seen as hospitable to radical voices, he should sever his ties with the blog that provides credible evidence for this charge.
Wow, liberal voting base or not, this will hurt.
Who’d a thunk it?
WOW. This should be required reading for anyone contemplating sitting out this 2008 election. McCain might be odious, but he’s a better choice than Obama Bin Laden.
“WOW. This should be required reading for anyone contemplating sitting out this 2008 election. McCain might be odious, but hes a better choice than Obama Bin Laden.”
Yep, and many will start realizing this soon.
Islam covets the White House.
Islam covets the White House.
This is interesting and what I have been saying. If he is President, what would stop him from looking the other way for his islamic buds. Scary stuff.
Thanks for the ping. I wasn’t planning on voting obama anyway, but just in case I run into someone who’s thinking about it, this will be very useful.
What a surprise!
So are they fake Muslims who ignore the Koran, or is Obama a fake Christian who's pretending not to be a Muslim? Hmmm?
...But, when Raila Odinga, the man who lost the election folks think he should have won, was looked at, things in the political landscape of Kenya suddenly came into focus as Dick Morris had, apparently, been helping out here and there for awhile now. So when you see things like Orange Democratic Movement (hearkening over the the Orange Revolution in Ukraine), a 'million person march' ala Louis Farrakhan's march and then other million person marches afterwards, and National Rainbow Coalition (Narc) hinting at Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Coalition/PUSH, things did start to fall into place. Dick Morris is a past master at playing on such themes and would avail himself of any indigenous views along similar lines and help to make such things more palatable to the US political palate. Mind you these Kenyan versions have zero connection to the things they try to lead one to, but that isn't a worry if you are pushing talking points and not substance.
...In June, Raila flew to the US, where he held talks with Senator Barack Obama, one of the candidates seeking the Democratic Party ticket to vie for the American presidency...
...Industry sources say that one of the things that helped Raila make a quick buck in the oil business was a concessionary petroleum deal he struck with the Al Bakri Group where he was not only incorporated as a silent partner in the local arm of Al Bakri International...
Abdulkader Al Bakri listed as a defendant in the First Amendment Complaint suit brought by various insurance companies against al Qaeda and associated organizations and individuals. Within that suit is mentioned documents (known as the Golden Chain document) picked up by Bosnian police on a raid on a charitable front organization for al Qaeda in Sarajevo. One of the listed documents is the "Tareekh Osama" ("Osama's History") in which Abdulkader al Bakri aka Abdel Qader Bakri gets a prominent listing...
So, when a man like Raila Odinga is linked with Abdulkader al Bakri, you are not making a minor connection, but one directly into al Qaeda.
Such are the vagaries of making political bedfellows in other Nations...
You said it. This guy is dangerous and way left of even Clinton.
Jew media and Hollywood will ignore this and support this muzzie.
Thanks Fred. I was about to ping you to this thread but saw that you were here.
How are you?
Some Republican’s and folks on this blog should read this before vowing never to vote to McCain. After coming this far in the war on terror we’d don’t need to elect Obama and surrender.
Whatever the muslims want (have in mind) for America has got to be BAD for us.
If the dems win the White House, I see some really rough times ahead of us. Depending on what Congress and the Senate try to pull, I think and hope this will really wake up the grassroots and finally get them to speak out.
Problem is, once the damage is done, it never gets undone.
He looks like “Desh” from Bourne Identity 3!
Doing his part for the jihad: Said throwing a stone at Israeli soldiers
Said not only united fascists and Communists, he also served as an ecumenical bridge. He was the rare Episcopalian admired by Hamas, whose goal of eradicating Israel he shared; Hezbollah - which was his host in southern Lebanon on his famous rock-throwing expedition - and other pillars of Islamic orthodoxy.
guess who's coming to dinner?
LOL.....your tagline. Excellent.
Hi! I’m FURIOUS!
thanks for asking...
Looks like Larry David throwing stones.
ONLY if Hillary launches this.
the real obama
On the 27th, Raila Odinga, Obamas cousin, lost the presidential election in Kenya.
Obama and Odinga share the same Luo heritage and history and has made it possible for them to share the same spotlight at this defining moment in Kenyan and American histories about hope and fear.
Raila Odinga, who is Obama’s first cousin, has, in his own words, a “close personal friendship” with Obama. When Obama went to Kenya in August of 2006, he was hosted by Raila and spoke in praise of him at several rallies in Nairobi. Obamas bias for his fellow Luo was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced Obama during his visit as Railas “stooge.”
When Raila Odinga lost the presidential election to Mwai Kibaki, he claimed the vote was rigged, whereupon his tribal followers went on murderous rampages, such as in the town of Eldoret, where on New Years Day dozens of Christians were burned to death in a church set on fire. Throughout Kenya, hundreds of people have been politically murdered in the last few days.
Islam had picked Raila to win.
The Evangelical Alliance of Kenya has posted on its website a photograph copy of a Memorandum of Understanding, dated and signed on August 29, 2007, between Raila Odinga and Shiekh Abdullah Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum of Kenya.
Here is a summary on the agreement which was signed:
* It pledges the support of Kenyan Moslems for Railas election. In return, as President of Kenya, Raila agrees to 14 actions, listed a) through n) on page two.
* Within 6 months re-write the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared regions.
* Within one year facilitate the establishment of a Shariah court in every Kenyan divisional headquarters. [Note: everywhere in Kenya, not just in “Muslim declared regions.”]
* Popularize Islam, the only true religion by ordering every primary school in Kenya in the regions to conduct daily Madrassa classes.
* Impose a total ban on open-air gospel crusades by worshippers of the cross
* Outlaw gospel programs on KBC, the National Broadcaster.
* Impose a total ban on the public consumption of alcoholic beverages
* Impose an immediate ban on womens public dressing styles that are considered immoral and offensive to the Muslim faith
Interestingly enough, Obama's grandfather was a very strict Muslim. One thing that Islam teaches is not to take a vow or a pledge to anything that is not Islam.....does anyone remember the picture of Hillary, Edwards and Obama with an American flag in the background? Anyone think that Obama was just being forgetful in not saluting the American flag?
Did you read this?
His chameleon gland was temporarily out of order..
Obama is the ultimate culmination of left wing 60's anti-American and anti-Christian radicalism and that is why he plays it so close to the cuff. Hillary is a screeching ultra-feminist socialist radical but I don't think she's nihilistic.
Obama is the Muslim Manchurian Candidate.
Thanks Phil. Sooner or later the Clintons are going to start getting this message out. Guess they are holding back right now.
Ummm, yeah, I did kinda forget about Huma, lol.
Not a joke though. Why would any intelligent American want to embrace Islam?
Obama was a Moslem will age 16! Changed apparently quite a while after settling in the USA.
I thought so, too. Wow.
Obama didn’t have to change to anything if he follows this:
‘...Isa, was a prophet of Islam
Jesus true name, according to the Quran, was Isa. His message was pure Islam, surrender to Allah. (Âl ‘Imran 3:84) Like all the Muslim prophets before him, and like Muhammad after him, Isa was a lawgiver, and Christians should submit to his law. (Âl ‘Imran 3:50; Al-Maidah 5:48) Isas original disciples were also true Muslims, for they said We believe. Bear witness that we have surrendered. We are Muslims. (Al-Maidah 5:111)
Like other messengers of Islam before him, Isa received his revelation of Islam in the form of a book. (Al-Anam 6:90) Isas book is called the Injil or gospel. (Al-Maidah 5:46) The Torah was Moses book, and the Zabur (Psalms) were Davids book. So Jews and Christians are people of the Book. The one religion revealed in these books was Islam. (Âl ‘Imran 3:18)
As with previous prophets, Isas revelation verified previous prophets revelations. (Âl ‘Imran 3:49,84; Al-Maidah 5:46; As-Saff 61:6) Muhammad himself verified all previous revelations, including the revelation to Isa (An-Nisa 4:47), and so Muslims must believe in the revelation which Isa received. (Al-Baqarah 2:136) However, after Isa the Injil was lost in its original form. Today the Quran is the only sure guide to Isas teaching...
Barack Hussein “Osama” Obama ping!!!!
