Good Grief: GZ Imam’s Wife Now Being Sent on Taxpayer Funded Trip to Middle East to Trash America…
Weasel Zippers ^ | August 24, 2010

Yup, the same woman who just said America is “beyond Islamophobic” is being sent by the Obama regime’s State Department to give her views on Muslim life in the U.S. to the United Arab Emirates…Yes, fresh from denouncing America on national television as a place rife with “hate of Muslims,” a place so Islamophobic that “it’s beyond Islamophobia,” Daisy Khan, co-planner of the Ground Zero mosque project, will soon be hopping a plane at taxpayer expense, courtesy of the State Department, to jet from New York to the United Arab Emirates and deliver to the Emiratis her views about Muslim life in America.

This is what the State Department calls “public diplomacy” — a program that enlists about 1,200 Americans each year to fly with plenty of leg room to foreign lands and tell folks over there what it’s like to live in America. You might think a lot of these junkets would by now be redundant, in a world so interconnected that the Fort Hood shooter took cues from an imam in Yemen. But then, the web just doesn’t have the zing of international business class and $496 per diems.

For Daisy Khan’s circle, State’s public diplomacy program is a boom industry. Khan’s husband and “bridge-building” partner, the man behind the Ground Zero mosque, Imam Feisal Adbul Rauf, is already on a more extensive State Department tour. After stops in Bahrain, where he has just been, and Qatar, where he will be this week, Rauf will meet up with Khan in the UAE, from Aug. 29-Sept.2. His trip will cost U.S. taxpayers $16,000. Hers will cost $12,000.

If you want slightly more detail about the Rauf-Khan trip to the UAE, the U.S. Embassy in Abu Dhabi has posted an announcement on its web site . But don’t get your hopes up that you’ll learn anything there about who Rauf and Khan will actually be seeing, as they build their “people to people” ties. Most details of these public outreach trips are kept secret from the American public.

Anyway, there you have it — for all those American taxpayers who caught Daisy Khan’s Sunday rant on ABC TV’s “This Week,” don’t bother looking for her on the U.S. talk shows next Sunday. She’ll be checking into an Abu Dhabi hotel, on your dime, to share her views with a Middle Eastern audience...

Face it, these people are being sent on taxpayer funded tours of the middle east for the sole purpose of raising funds for the ground zero victory mosque.

How comes Obama doesn't send a CATHOLIC PRIEST, a RABBI or a PROTESTANT MINISTER to tell what life is like in America?

BTW, broadly defining Christianity, is there a CHRISTIAN church in ANY of these Muslim countries that this freak is going to? If not, WHY NOT?

So does the White House. Fundimentally changing America? I don’t want it changed, other than to do what our Founding Fathers wanted for this great country.

I'm afraid we're way beyond fumigation as a remedy.

I am thinking if she keeps up with her latest line of chat, she might actually be useful in discouraging any more Muslim immigration to the United States.

Looks like Rauf and his wife Ms. Daisy are taking a cue from the Obamas , and all their own ‘separate vacations’.
Nobody knows the true agenda of Michelle in Spain,or Barack anywhere else in the world all his life, and the same with Daisy and her Imam , now in the Middle East.
What is it: fundraising, crosscultural ‘outreach’ with Mr and Mrs Rauf as new would-be representatives of “American Islam, or strategy sessions with MidEast-centered Islam to work on a Master Plan that could take generations if they can figure out how to play their cards right?
They are playing the same dangerous game of overreach as Obama has been playing for 20 months, and it will backfire in their faces. Their overall plan is to keep this sort of slow-burning polarization up, stoke the domestic opposition against them in the US, and thereby hope to radicalize even the ‘peaceful’ Muslims living here and win them over in a classic “Hearts and Minds” ploy.
This is a VERY tricky enterprise, and everything they’re doing is making it harder for the very people they’re trying to recruit. They’re just Obama surrogates and they will fall, as he will fall.

Good Grief: GZ Imam’s Wife Now Being Sent on Taxpayer Funded Trip to Middle East to Trash America…

Remember, this is the same State Department run by the World's Smartest Woman - Hillary Clinton!! The same Hillary Clinton that some on the left believe should replace Biden as VP to save the messiah's failed presidency. The same Hillary Clinton who, as FLOTUS, kissed Yassar Arafathead's wife!!

Is anyone REALLY surprised???

I’m sure the ACLU is all over this blatant violation of church and state.

Hmmm.....

She has contempt for American people. Seems to fit with this administration.

Our entire government needs to be fumigated for that matter, but I’ll settle for some strong movement in the RIGHT direction this November with hopes some action to stop, detain, pause this Leftist insanity until we can regain Congress, and hopefully the Presidency in 2012.

I saw her on TV. Why wasn’t she wearing a head scarf? Shouldn’t he husband beat her or cut off her head or something because she was not wearing one?
