Skip to comments.'Instructor' at Fort Hood has ties to terror financing group
Posted on 12/04/2009 11:15:01 PM PST by neverdem
Andrew McCarthy at NRO has ferreted out this incredible story about an instructor the Pentagon sent to Fort Hood to teach our soldiers about Islam who has ties to the notorious terrorist financing outfit ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) - an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial.
It's been brought to my attention by several reliable sources that the Defense Department has brought Louay Safi to Fort Hood as an instructor, and that he has been lecturing on Islam to our troops in Fort Hood who are about to deploy to Afghanistan. Safi is a top official of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), and served as research director at the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT).
Worse, last evening, Safi was apparently permitted to present a check (evidently on behalf of ISNA) to the families of the victims of last month's Fort Hood massacre. A military source told the blogger Barbarossa at the Jawa Report: "This is nothing short of blood money. This is criminal and the Ft. Hood base commander should be fired right now."
Who is ISNA?
ISNA was identified by the Justice Department at the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing conspiracy trial as an unindicted co-conspirator. The defendants at that trial were convicted of funding Hamas to the tune of millions of dollars. This should have come as no surprise. ISNA is the Muslim Brotherhood's umbrella entity for Islamist organizations in the United States. It was established in 1981 to enable Muslims in North America "to adopt Islam as a complete way of life" - i.e., to further the Brotherhood's strategy of establishing enclaves in the West that are governed by sharia.
Who is Louay Safi? Barbarossa at The Jawa Report explains:
He has long been on the radar of federal law enforcement. Back in 2003, Safi was named in a FBI affidavit submitted to the court that approved a search warrant of the now-closed Graduate School of Islamic Social Sciences, which trained and approved the initial Muslim military chaplains.
A glimpse of his connections to Islamic terrorists operating inside the US can be seen in a phone conversation recorded by the FBI he had with Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami al-Arian. The Investigative Project describes the call:
In a recorded 1995 telephone call, Al-Arian and Louay Safi discuss President Clinton's new executive order prohibiting financial transactions with terrorist groups including the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Safi, an officer with the Islamic Society of North America and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (currently undergoing its own investigation for terrorist financing and ties to the Muslim Brotherhood), wanted to know if this affected Al-Arian.
Al-Arian dismissed the order as empty political posturing:
Al-Arian: By God the Almighty, when he lists names like Abu Nidal and Fathi Shiqaqi and Ahmad Yassin ... Does Ahmad Yassin have accounts here? What is this nonsense?
Safi: He just wants to please them.
Al-Arian: Of course.
Safi: Nobody understands these things in America.
Al-Arian: True, people don't understand anything. They don't understand anything.
Incredible. This guy is instructing our troops? If he had any contact with Hasan...fill in the blanks.
If you want to get a sense of the garbage our troops are being forced to endure in Fort Hood's classrooms, check out Jihad Watch, where my friend Bob Spencer has more on this episode and on his prior jousts with Safi, here , here and here .Emerson is dreaming if he thinks Congress will touch this story. The administration will pull their executive privilege rabbit out of the hat and refuse to cooperate. But you wonder if the FBI or the military has even interviewed Mr. Safi and tried to find out if Hasan made contact with him.
What on earth is this government doing, and will Congress please do something about it?
How many people have to die before we understand how stupid we are?
Another TOP 2010 Campaign issues with which we can BURN the Democrats at the STAKE (not only that, it is the right thing to do). We can take the Senate and Congress on these kinds of things if we can wake up enough people. Lay it ALL at the feet of the Obama Administration.
But hey "Islam is a Religion of Peace" - right?
It is beyond stunning how our leadership keeps on sticking their collective heads and other body parts in the sand!!!!!
Nope. Its is about Islamic domination.
Palin: Mr. President, Boycott Copenhagen Palin's comments might get the MSM's attention.
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.

Still waiting for our PC, moronic Military to even review its policies, vis-a-vis, the "Chaplain Program."
Can anyone imagine if there were a group of Westboro Baptist Church types who were ministering the troops and advancing its hate agenda? Wondering how long they would be tolerated, much less even have been accepted for said role to begin with.
It may be a more slow manner in which the Islamo Fascist Jihadist's final solution in conquering the Great Satan, but at the rate they have been successful in advancing their agenda, there is no need to fire a shot in anger or even one more terrorist attack in order for them to prevail.
Why bother when we are slowly surrendering and inviting the enemy to operate at will unimpeded?
The extent of our willful ignorance is beyond ludicrous--it is suicidal!
WHOEVER brought this TERRORIST to Ft. Hood should be FIRED....COURT MARTIALED.....or HUNG!
Exactly. Sometimes I get the horrible feeling that our leaders, such as they are, have already given up and are just deciding to accept an Islamic future for the US. They're just going to let it happen. Not to mention the ones who are actively promoting it (probably including the current occupant of the WH).
A good chunk of the military has been politicized by defeatest dogma sprouted by the Clintonistas, their holdovers that were never purged by Bush and now by the post white-mans’ administration of O’Cheese.
This is the cancer of liberalism.
Soft on criminals like Clemmons who rape and murder.
Soft on gov’t malfeasance, like after 9/11, when nobody was fired.
Soft on terrorists, treating them as criminals rather than enemies of the state.
Why should our elected officials care? They get taxpayer provided protection while the ‘ordinary’ citizens get killed.
We are overpopulated, after all.
Come on - during World War II the military often assigned NAZIS to teach our men how to be sensitive to the German culture... you lack of PC skill is shocking, eyes. /s

Do not worry, Odumbo will give him or her a big promotion for FUBT#’S. Muslims should never be allowed to serve in the military or any type of LEA.
America must learn not to sleep with the enemy or invite them home to dinner.
They will always be muslims first and Americans, when convenient for their agenda.
This admin is trying to destroy our country with their idiotic P.C. pampering of islamic terrorists.
Thank you Ann, for speaking the truth as to what should be done with those responsible for this preventable islamic domestic terrorist attack at Ft Hood.
I have noticed, that I receive few if any responses to my posts. I guess Obumohas some of our Freepers running scared on this site. The truth will always stand on it’s own, regardless of the alinsky smear tactics.
God Bless America and our American Patriots!!!!!
Hell, if it were a group of “Good Ole Boys having a few cases of PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer) at a fish fry the feds would send in multiple (HRT) Hostage Rescue Teams break up an alleged “white supremist klan gathering.”
It is a double standard here in America with this admin at the helm. Funny how American Patriots are viewed as war crime criminals for giving a known terrorist a tune up during capture. Note: islamic jihadists/black muslim converts are viewed as heros under the Zero and his ilk.
I wonder why obammy and his mammy were attending those CAIR meetings in the 1990’s. This would make a prudent patriotic, God loving American wonder out loud.
Well time to sign off from Radio Free America and have a Merry Christmas.

Forgedaboutit. I’m on a roll (wink)
How many people have to die before we understand how stupid we are?
Approximately 26%- the same number as those who still strongly approve of obozo’s performance in office.
You see, if for example, five of the largest, most liberal cities were nuked (and I’d be among the casualties if that was to happen) that would effectively eliminate the bulk of stupid people, and would allow the survivors to reverse the stupid policies.
thanks for the ping
The answer is: apparently more.
Sadly so, you are clearly correct.
Thanks for the ping!
Well, some of us do, but probably not enough of us do.
As an aside, this is as good an explanation as any as to why 0b0z0 won the election.
(Belated hat tip to melancholy for the "0b0z0" moniker.)
I am updating the ft hood archives this morning.. am so afraid this terrorist attack is fading ...from the memories of Americans, and it would be OBAMA’s FAULT.
