Conservative Group Calls on Justice Dept. to Investigate Muslim Prayers on Capitol Hill
Fox News ^ | November 12, 2010 | Fox News

Posted on 11/13/2010 1:40:19 AM PST by Scanian

A conservative advocacy group on Friday called on the Justice Department to investigate a weekly prayer session on Capitol Hill that Muslims with terrorist ties have been participating in since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The American Center for Law and Justice, founded by the Rev. Pat Robertson, issued the demand one day after FoxNews.com revealed that notorious Al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was among the controversial figures who has attended the weekly Friday Jummah prayers hosted by the Congressional Muslims Staff Association during the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations.

The group held prayers informally for about eight years before gaining official status in 2006 under the sponsorship of Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., one of two Muslims currently serving in Congress.

"It is unbelievable that the very terrorists who want to destroy America are permitted to meet in a congressionally sanctioned setting on Capitol Hill," said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of American Center for Law and Justice. "This raises a host of significant questions – including concerns about national security.

"We're demanding that the Department of Justice conduct an investigation and take immediate action to halt what appears to be a pattern of inviting Islamic extremists with ties to terrorism to participate in these events," he continued.

The Justice Department declined to comment.

Amazing how Democrats love every anti-american faction. Luckily they are in the process of becoming isolated and marginalized due to lack of funding. A Democrat with no free money left is headed for the trash can. They will be on defense now. Fighting for all the things that require huge amounts of OPM to distribute. We are going on chemotherapy. By that I mean we have to go broke in order to rid ourselves of the Socialist Cancer. To me it is worth it.

Since I am on actual chemo, I ask myself that same question most every day...is it worth it?

So far, I’m sticking with it. I wonder how all the porkers around the country will handle such a financial regimen?

Sleazebag politicians indulging spoiled people whose numbers grow by leaps and bounds every year. I just don’t know if we are tough enough as a society to withstand such a shock anymore. I pray that we are but it is a hard call.

Yes it is worth it. Never give up the ship. The funniest thing is that the Republicans will ban earmarks just as Alaska elects the Pork Queen Murkookski for just that purpose. Just Deserts? Also the small states like Hawaii, Vermont, Delaware etc with Democrat Senators will take it on the chops. Sorry about you having to take chemo. GL.

"Sources told FoxNews.com that Congressional Muslims Staff Association... for the most part, do not play a role in bringing in speakers."

They may not "for the most part" (a loaded phrase) bring them in, but as Muslims they know very well who & what these Jihadis speakers are and yet they did nothing to report the abuse. They chose to consensual go along with Jihadists on Capitol Hill since 911.

When the Obama-Holder DOJ declines to protect America from this 5th column in the heart of our national government, the next GOP house must have hearings and call all "Congressional Muslims Staff Association" (CMSA) members to testify under oath. They must be identified, investigated and exposed.

As a beginning to identifying CSMA members, here's a link to a prior FR thread on "Al-Qaeda on Capitol Hill" and the CMSA. That article identifies Jameel Aalim-Johnson [Gregory Meeks (D) NY] and the congress member employing him. Additionally, I track downed the following additional members of CMSA and Congressional staff they were on:

Nayyera Haq [John Salazar (D) CO]
Umair Khan [Bob Filner (D) CA]
Assad Akhter [Bill Pascrell (D) NJ]
(Names & affiliation from NY-Times)

ASSAD AKHTER [Bill Pascrell (D) NJ] previously [Sheila Jackson (D) TX]
MOON SULFAB [Mitch McConnell (R) KY]
J.{Jihad} SALEH WILLIAMS [Gregory Meeks (D) NY] ......Yes, the 1st name is "Jihad"
DIALA JADALLAH [Dennis Kucinich (D) OH]
MOUAZ MOUSTAFA [Blanche Lincoln] (D) AR]
(Names from CMSA website & affiliation from LegiStorm.com)

Anyone surprised that all but one worked for democrats, with Meeks and Pascrell employing more than one.

I'm sure their are more, and there may be one working in YOUR congress member's office.

I respect Jay S. and the support the ACLJ—but I hope he does not seriously expect Eric Holders bunch to honor the request with a reply.This is the same political bunch that says they will not investigate the intimidation of voters/vote fraud by
members of the Black Panther Party? The same political Just
US dept. that thinks Islamic Terrorists ought be removed from
military system as enemy combatants and tried like common
thugs in the shadow of their evil deeds?I have more faith in the ACLJ than I do Eric holder or the Dept. of Just US

been subject to pay the ransom demanded by the extremists in the religion of peace.The war is against the deceived and the
Deceiver. There is no moderate /no extremist in that bloody false religion.but they have captured Washington D.C.

“The rodent guy or the roach guy?”

With the terrorist Muslims being such a help to the Communist Democrats, we’ll need both.
