Posted on 02/15/2010 5:22:05 AM PST by BIOCHEMKY
Rashad Hussein, White House official and President Obamas newly appointed Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Conference, has a history of participation in events connected with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood as well as support for Brotherhood causes, once having called prosecution of the U.S. leader of a Palestinian terrorist organization one of many politically motivated persecutions. Mr. Hussains official biography states:
Rashad Hussain is presently Deputy Associate Counsel to President Obama. His work at the White House focuses on national security, new media, and science and technology issues. Mr. Hussain has also worked with the National Security Staff in pursuing the New Beginning that President Obama outlined in his June 2009 address in Cairo, Egypt. Mr. Hussain previously served as a Trial Attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice. Earlier in his career, Mr. Hussain was a legislative assistant on the House Judiciary Committee, where he focused on national security-related issues. Mr. Hussain received his J.D. from Yale Law School, where he served as an editor of the Yale Law Journal. Upon graduation, he served as a Law Clerk to Damon J. Keith on the U.S. Court of Appeals. Mr. Hussain also earned his Masters degrees in Public Administration (Kennedy School of Government) and Arabic and Islamic Studies from Harvard University. He attended college at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
However, in October 2000 Mr. Hussain spoke at a conference sponsored by the Association of Muslim Social Scientists (AMSS) and the Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University (CMCU). The conference was titled Islam, Pluralism, and Demoracy and featured many leaders of the global Muslim Brotherhood including former German diplomat Murad Hoffman, and International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) leaders Louay Safi, Jamal Barzinji, Hisham Al-Talib, and AbdulHamid Abusylayman. The AMSS was founded in 1972 as an outgrowth of the Muslim Student Association and has long been associated with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.
In June 2002, Mr. Hussain was listed as part of a Congressional Staffers panel at the American Muslim Councils (AMC) 11th annual convention. The AMC was headed at that time headed by Abdurahman Alamoudi, a leader in the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and currently imprisoned as part of a plot to assassinate the Saudi head of state, Crown Prince Abdullah. Other important leaders of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood such as Jamal Barzinji were also part of the AMC.
While at Yale Law School, Mr. Hussain was listed as part of the organizing committee for an April 2004 conference organized by a student organization known as the Critical Islamic Reflections (CIR) group. Among the CIR sponsors listed on the their web site was IIIT and the Fairfax Institute, the IIIT educational arm. IIIT is an important component of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and three of the key IIIT/Fairfax leaders Jamal Barzinji, Hisham Al-Talib, and Yaqub Mirza; were also associated with what has been called the SAAR network (Safa Group), a network of Islamic organizations located in Northern Virginia that was raided by the Federal government in March 2002 and which, until at least mid 2007, had been the subject of an ongoing investigation. Also listed as a CIR sponsor was ALIM, most likely referring to the American Learning Institute for Muslims and whose list of instructors includes some of the most important leaders of the U.S./global Muslim Brotherhood including Tariq Ramadan, Jamal Badawi, and Taha Al-Alwani.

BREAKING NEWS: New Obama Envoy Has History Of Engagement With U.S. Muslim Brotherhood; Called Al-Arian Case Politically Motivated Persecution
This article is published by:
The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report
which is subtitled as:
An Intelligence Digest Covering Developments in the Worldwide Muslin Brotherhood Network
The article cited above relates to a second one which is entitled, "Expediting the Grand Jihad: Barack Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood".
Excerpts of this second article follow. A link to the second article is provided at the end where the references noted throughout are listed.
Hamas was an offshoot of the Egyptian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood (172). Founded in 1928 by an Egyptian schoolteacher named Hassan al-Banna with the expressed purpose of purifying Islam, the Muslim Brotherhood is anything but a benign Muslim organization (172). According to Baer, the Brotherhood "is another of the cauldrons from which al Qaeda emerged" (172). Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the architect of the September 11 attacks, joined the Muslim Brotherhood at the age of sixteen and attended the Brotherhood's desert youth camps (Mintz and Farah, "In Search of Friends Among Foes"). Ayman Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden's deputy, was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood's Egyptian branch (ibid). According to Seymour Hersh, the Brotherhood may have even been involved in the September 11 attacks. Hersh states: "Many of the September 11th hijackers had operated out of cells in Aachen and Hamburg, where Al Qaeda was working with the Brotherhood" ("The Syrian Bet").
The Brotherhood's hatred of the United States was clearly expressed in a 1991 internal memorandum written by Mohamed Akram for the Shura Council of the Muslim Brotherhood.
This memorandum was entitled "An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America".
The document states that the Brotherhood's activities in the United States represent: 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. (Akram)
The following paragraphs relate to Obama and an Arab businessman named Yaqub Mirza who lives in Chicago and moved in the same political circles as Obama and Antoin "Tony" Rezko when they to were also in Chicago.
Besides Obama's connection to the Muslim Brotherhood through Rev. Wright's "Black Theology" and Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour a.k.a. Donald Warden who helped raise funds for Obama's law School education, it now appears that Obama may be also be connected to the Muslim Brotherhood through his old Chicago mob friends. Antoin "Tony" Rezko, a Syrian-American political fundraiser and Chicago real estate developer provides the bridge.
Obama owes a lot to his good friend Tony. Rezko began his career as Obama's political godfather in 1995, when two of his food companies contributed $2,000 to Obama's campaign (Novak, "Obama and his Rezko ties"). It was the beginning of a beautiful political friendship. Rezko helped bankroll Obama in five election runs (Fusco, et al., "Obama explains Rezko relationship to Sun-Times"). After some ducking and weaving, Obama admitted to receiving $250,000 from Rezko's fundraising efforts (ibid).
Standing behind Rezko is Talat Othman, a leader in the American Muslim community in Illinois and an extremely successful Arab American businessman. It was Othman who introduced Rezko to former Illinois governor Jim Edgar and it was Othman who aided Rezko in gaining access to Illinois political circles (Hanania, "Arabs in Chicago discover political clout and controversy"). Rezko was also recognized as "Entrepreneur of the Decade" by Othman's Arab-American Business and Professional Association (ibid).
Othman has a close relationship with M. Yaqub Mirza, a naturalized Pakistani businessman and physicist (Trento 336). [Mirza is also mentioned in the first artcle]. Othman and Mirza were co-chairmen of the Islamic Society of North America 2001 Convention (336). The two were also involved in Amana Mutual Funds Trust, an Islamic mutual fund which, according to investigative journalist Joseph Trento, "specializes in investments that are consonant with Islamic beliefs" (336). Othman sits on Amana's board and Mirza served as the mutual fund's chairman (336).
Obama has tried to downplay his connections to Rezko. Has he done this to merely try to conceal his poor judgement in the realm of campaign finance? The 44th President may be trying to hide a much more disturbing reality from the eyes of the public. That reality is the fact that our own government, in league with the power elite, will continue collaborating with America's enemies. The "grand Jihad" proclaimed by Akram in his 1991 memorandum does not only constitute the Muslim Brotherhood's crusade to destroy Western civilization. It also constitutes the power elites's war on the plebians.
The primary point of sharing the above information is that evidence is mounting in support of the premise that Obama is part of a global network called the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). It is also looking like both his father and his grandfather were members of the MB before him. From the ancestry of the Obama family, it would be most likely that they descended from the Egyptian branch of the MB.
Warm up the bus.
It’s just stunning how dangerous ObaMao is to the United States. That he hates the US can no longer be in doubt for sentient minds to conclude.
His across-the-board appointments to sensitive positions of some of the most radical extremists in the country should be more than just a cause for alarm. This man is dangerous, folks.
They hate the West.
Why are they here ?
He is trying to put the USA in the role of powerless Victims.
Another terrorist member of a terrorist administration.
“They hate the West.”
“Why are they here ?”
They want to extend the boundaries of the Islamic Empire to extend around the Globe until there is no such thing as the “West” anymore...
Of course we can expect CNN and all networks to cover this news.
Is the USA waking up now? Too late! Obama is laughing at us over how easily he obtained the mighty power of the US - which he is steadily giving to the muslims. It’s a done deal now.
He’s re fighting the 60’s. Holder and Axelrod are as well.
Yep, “Brotherhood” it’s an organized network. The first links in the Muslim Brotherhood network between muslim nations were laid in the late 1920s and more and more countres were added over the decades that followed. Now, there is apparently a power base on every continent and within the borders of many nations that muslims who are members of their branch of the network can draw on to advance the political motives of the Brotherhood.
Can anyone say the Muslim version of ACORN? ACORN itself is an international entity; it has been established in 50 countries.
“Its a done deal now.”
The only two “solutions” I see is:
#1 impeachment of Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and firing of Emanuel
#2 military coup
However, Obama is now sending members of the Joint Chiefs oversees as envoys too (to Israel in the last day or so). Therefore, this option may already have been co-opted.
The Muslim Brotherhood must be engaged. I would prefer that engagement took place at about 500 yards and we were using .50 cal., picking them off one at a time!
Now, unwittingly, and outwitted, America is the largest terrorist organization and sponsor in the world!
mmm mmm mmm Add this to Obama black panther ties and maybe one day we’ll see the entire picture.
And we can be sure our secrets are now enemy property. The whole Country is going to be over run by the bus. The whole lot over thrown by the ignorant, fraudulent and power hungry.
God save us.
From the second article:
... 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. (Akram)
Having been raised in a Christian environment in the good old USA it is hard for me to understand a "religion" which preaches hate and destruction instead of love and compassion. The idea of a "religion" being victorious over all others is also a foreign concept.
Islam and Communism each seek world domination and according to David Horowitz have formed an Unholy Alliance to achieve that goal. They have made a lot of progress in that Obama is both and has filled our government with both.
Soon, we will be the ones on the outside looking in if we don't stay energized and throw these people out of office. They won't go quietly and will commit all the tricks of election fraud they have been preparing for all these years. Failing at that they will create another "crisis" and declare a national emergency in order to stay in office.
They didn't work this hard this long to finally gain the prize and then quietly turn it back over to us ordinary citizens. I expect a large terrorist attack from their Muslim friends and cohorts.
“Now, unwittingly, and outwitted, America is the largest terrorist organization and sponsor in the world!”
Oh thanks, I REALLY hadn’t quite gotten to this realization yet (where do I puke?)
“mmm mmm mmm Add this to Obama black panther ties and maybe one day well see the entire picture.”
Alot of the Black Panthers converted to Islam, case in point Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour a.k.a. Donald Warden.
al-Mansour was who raised funds to pay for Obama’s law school education at Harvard. The background on al-Mansour is as follows:
Mansour is an orthodox Muslim, a black nationalist, an outspoken enemy of Israel, and mentor to Black Panther Party founder Huey Newton and his cohort, Bobby Seale. At the time al-Mansour associate Percy Sutton was raising money for Obamas education, al-Mansour was the top financial advisor to mega-billionaire Prince Al-Waleed (Al-Walid) bin Talal of the Saudi royal family. Percy Sutton was Malcolm X’s attorney and a New York (Manhattan) Assemblyman.
As of August 2009, Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talals net worth is estimated at US$16.3 billion, down from $21 billion. He is ranked by Forbes as the 22nd richest person in the world. He has been nicknamed by Time magazine as the Arabian Warren Buffett. Prince Al-Waleed now owns more than 5% of FOX news.

Obama Had Close Ties to Top Saudi Adviser at Early Age, Wednesday, 03 Sep 2008 05:58 PM
Not as dangerous as complacency.
Raise your hand if you are surprised an Obama appointee has a shady past PING
You forgot Rezko and his Nation of Islam ties. (First job was with Ali, the boxer)
OTOH Rezko is never the intiator, he’s just the “mule” used by others....for a good salary of course....Wonder why he hasn’t been sentenced yet????? Waiting the congress to become more conservative so IMPEACHment will become a fact instead of cover up by current legislation?
“ISNA Approves Of Meeting With DHS Secretary; U.S. Muslim Brotherhood Likely In Attendance”
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) has expressed its approval of a meeting held last week between Muslim, Arab, Sikh and South Asian American community leaders and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. According to an ISNA press release:
In a meeting with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano yesterday to discuss joint efforts against domestic violent extremists, Muslim, Arab, Sikh and South Asian American community leaders welcomed commitments by the Secretary to promote meaningful, positive and authentic dialogue. Leaders from national and local organizations representing these communities expressed concern about DHS policies, such as racial, ethnic, and religious profiling at airports and the border, that have eroded the governments trust and credibility with the communities. The commitments Secretary Napolitano made to these community leaders include:
-Education and training for DHS leadership to promote understanding of the Muslim, Arab, Sikh & South Asian American communities and their concerns;
-Rescinding a new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) directive targeting travelers from or through 13 predominantly Muslim nations, plus Cuba.-
-Revising a TSA directive on religious headwear, such as turbans and headscarves.-Setting limits on interrogations and searches by Customs and Border Protection agents that probe an Americans faith, politics, finances or associations, as well as cell phones, laptops and electronic devices, without any evidence of wrongdoing.
Although it is not confirmed, the press release contains a list of media contacts including leaders from ISNA, the Muslim Public Affair Council (MPAC) and the Muslim American Society (MAS) suggesting that the Muslim community leaders were in fact representatives of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.
A report by the Hudson Institute has identified ISNA as a major part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. The organization has a long history of fundamentalism, anti-semitism, and support for terrorism and during the recent Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial, ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator. Although recently ISNA has issued condemnations of terrorism which for the first time identify Hamas and Hezbollah by name, there is no indication that the organization has ever addressed or acknowledged its history.
MPAC was established initially in 1986 as the Political Action Committee of the Islamic Center of Southern California whose key leaders likely had their origins in the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. Since that time, MPAC has functioned as the political lobbying arm of the U.S. Brotherhood. MPAC has opposed virtually every count-terror initiative undertaken or proposed by the U.S. government. At times this opposition was said to be on civil-rights grounds but, just as often, MPAC claimed that U.S. counter-terror efforts were aimed at the U.S. Muslim community itself. MPAC has constructed and consistently espoused an elaborate ideology defending the use of violence by Islamists and Islamist organizations.
The MAS was identified in the Hudson Institute report as a part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and closely tied to the Egyptian organization. The organization is notable for its extensive grassroots organization and its ties to far-left organizations.
It is the “free western industrialized world” that is under attack via the backbone, America.
Thanks for the info on Rezko re: Muhammed Ali.
Yes, I think the American people are willing to wait for the midterm elections and see if the congress becomes more conservative so IMPEACHment will become a fact instead of a dream. If that doesn’t ahppen, however, or if no one moves toward impeachment and Obama continues with the executive orders at the same pace, I believe the people will lose patience and there is likely to be widespread social unrest and non-election-oriented political upheaval.
And the American people just breeze along viewing “Avatar” as though nothing of importance is happening.....I’ve talked to some in the military who call Obama “The Man” because he sent them 200.00 in the mail......Completely clueless to what is going on......
“It is the free western industrialized world that is under attack via the backbone, America.”
Yep, it’s like America is a sherman tank and the terrorists have figured out that if they get close enough to be part of the tank, the tank cannot shoot at them. Therefore, they remain unhurt even though there are loyal soldiers in the tank and the terrorists can even attempt to adjust the direction the turret and gun are pointing to suit their own agenda. Also, if the loyal soldiers attempt to crawl out of the tank to engage the enemy directly the enemy will just set off grenades and take everybody out; the terrorists are happy to serve as suicide bombers.
“Ive talked to some in the military who call Obama The Man because he sent them 200.00 in the mail......Completely clueless to what is going on......”
That is so Obama-esque...did i really need to know this?
(He REALLY disgusts me)
Only one problem, the comehandler in chef is on the terrorists side.... and he has turned your fuel cock off.
During her 2000 Senate campaign, Clinton took $1000 from Alamoudi when he was head of the American Muslim Council. She was forced to return the money when news got out that he voiced support for Palestinian terrorists. (She listed his group as the "American Museum Council" in her donor report to the FEC, an attempt critics say to disguise Alamoudi as a curator rather than a terrorist supporter. As first lady, Hillary had hosted Alamoudi at the White House.
We live in interesting times.
“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”Muslim Brotherhood”
Wonder where Zero gets his belief in Lying constantly:
2. DECEPTION- In order to defend Islam (Islamism) from charges that it is inherently violent/terroristic, the Brotherhood deceives the public about the nature of Jihad. This is necessary because Jihad plays an important role for Islamism and the Brotherhood and if the connection between Islam and violence is to be denied, Jihad must be explained away. Again, the Brotherhood represents the Jihadism of the Islamists as opposed to the classical Jihad of Islam but since that distinction is also lost on the public, the Brotherhood defends Jihad. It does so usually in one of two ways, sometimes employing both deceptions. First, the Brotherhood claims that Jihad has little or no connection to violence and warfare (i.e. there is no Holy War), and is instead akin to various forms of inner struggle or self-improvement. Second, the Brotherhood suggests that Jihad is a form of freedom fighting, even comparing Jihad to the American Revolution. Lately, there has been a suggestion that Jihad should be replaced with the term Hirabah which, if successful, would represent a victory for the Brotherhood deception strategy
FRiend, read up a little more about Islamist extremism. Here's an interesting summary: al-Qaedas 7 Step Plan
If you would like to read something more scholarly, another good source is the book, The Holy War Idea in Western and Islamic Traditions, by James Turner Johnson. I bought it for a college course and could not resolve the conflicts that it brought to light.
What the hell is this?
“What the hell is this?”
That is REALLY WEIRD!
What am I missing? What is weird? I’m not seeing it.
Gads, this is all so blatant but no one even gives ten seconds on MSM news...it’s probably buried in page 100 if at all if CAIR has anything to do with it. Buncha liars and Obummers looks to be the biggest of liars.
al-Mansour was the top financial advisor to mega-billionaire Prince Al-Waleed (Al-Walid) bin Talal of the Saudi royal family.
So the bow was thanks for tuition payment?
The US is being infiltrated the way the UK has been.
Muslims with barely disguised Islamist agendas are being promoted by our Muslim President, and by the PC useful idiots on the left which have taken over the military as well.
Because their brother is squatting in the White House.
