Skip to comments.Obama seeks Muslims for Whtie House posts

Barack Obama is conducting his own affirmative action program to get more Muslims in the White House.
The move began with Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn, who took his oath of office with a hand on the Quran, to solicit the resume of what he considered to be the nation's most qualified adherents of Islam.
According to the Denver Post, when White House officials heard about the program, it was put on overdrive.
So far, 45 Ivy League grads, Fortune 500 executives and government officials have been submitted for consideration.
J. Saleh Williams, program coordinator for the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association, sifted through more than 300 names as part of the search.
"It was mostly under the radar," Williams said. "We thought it would put (the president) in a precarious position. We didn't know how closely he wanted to appear to be working with the Muslim American community."
Ellison is serious about his faith. He made the pilgrimage to Mecca with the sponsorship of the Muslim American Society, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.
In 1991, Mohamed Akram wrote a memo for the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood that explained its work in America as "a kind of grand jihad in 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."

I think it’s time we officially laid the concept of equality before the law so eloquently articulated by MLK to rest.
Your intellect, achievements, character, and ability are irrelevant - all that matters is what disaffected subgroup you belong to and how you ‘deserve’ a post to further ‘social justice.’

"Vastly Illuminating!" September 25, 2004
By Kat Bakhu
"I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.
It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.
Individual chapters are included on the Patriot Act (I was persuaded that it is a GOOD thing); the democratic flip-flop on Iraq once G.W. Bush implemented what they agreed with Clinton needed to be done; the driving components of the current anti-war movement; as well as chapters on individual personalities who are major spokespeople of the Left. Horowitz covers a lot of ground, and he covers it concisely and clearly. Unholy Alliance is richly informative without ever being boring or plodding.
This book is so illuminating that I simply cannot do justice to it here. I love people who reason so clearly that they help me get my own reasoning clear. Horowitz is just that type of person! In the terrain of mindless clichés (no-blood-for-oil, etc.), he is a breath of real fresh air."
Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left -by David Horowitz
Not all dissent is equal, and Americans whose actions are calculated to give aide and comfort to the butchers who murdered 3,000 innocent people on September 11, 2001 are not patriotic at all... they are, in fact, quite the opposite.

Why can not Christians and Jews go into Muslim countries and practice their religion? Muslims should not even come to the USA unless we can practice our religions in their lands? This is not equal treatment under the law.
Perhaps Obama will appoint OBL as his Middle East Czar.
It's an oppressive, totalitarian system like communism. That's their common denominator.
It seems that by attacking and incinerating 3000 innocent US civilians that the Muslims have in effect become the most vocal and of course oppressed minority thereby becoming eligible for all sorts of special benefits including but not limited to: footbaths installed at taxpayer expense, special gym privileges, special religious considerations in schools, affirmative action in hiring, special rights to discriminate against others, and even election to the highest office in the land.
What’s not for a true liberal to love?
I bet if OBL had known it would be this easy he’d have attacked us long ago.
I can't wait for the White House Ramadan Dinner this year.
One is too many.
And so it begins.
Tomorrow Sharia law
BECAUSE HE IS A muslim.
