Skip to comments.Grover Norquist and radical Islam (old reminder)
Posted on 02/11/2012 1:15:34 PM PST by combat_boots
Frank Gaffney has written in FrontPage magazine an article that is much needed and long overdue: "A Troubling Influence," about the extensive ties that conservative activist Grover Norquist has with radical Islamic elements.
This is a lengthy and exhaustively documented piece about a man who has stood as a singular obstruction to efforts to alert people to the gravity of the threat from radical Islam. All of it should be read carefully, but here are a few highlights:
The association between Grover Norquist and Islamists appears to have started about five years ago, in 1998, when he became the founding chairman of an organization called the Islamic Free Market Institute, better known as the Islamic Institute. The Institute's stated purpose was to cultivate Muslim-Americans and Arab-Americans whose attachment to conservative family values and capitalism made them potential allies for the Republican Party in advance of the 2000 presidential election. . . . Unfortunately, some associated with the Islamic Institute evidently had another agenda. Abdurahman Alamoudi, for one, a self-described "supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah," the prime-mover behind the American Muslim Council (AMC) and a number of other U.S.-based Islamist-sympathizing/supporting organizations, saw in the Islamic Institute a golden opportunity to hedge his bets.

Norquist created the Islamic Free Market Institute
“Grover Norquist, Slave To Islam:
Grover Norquist and the undermining of conservatism and America, a tale of greed and sedition. Grover is best known for founding Americans For Tax Reform, at the request of President Ronald Reagan, in 1985. Mr. Norquist has also been executive director of the College Republicans and the National Taxpayers Union. Grover worked as an economist and Chief Speech Writer at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. But, Norquist was also active in global politics as well, including his work within the support network for Col. Oliver North. Norquist has had his fingers in the Islamic Free Market Institute, the advisory board for GOProud, a conservative group that promotes the conservative agenda, for homosexuals, straights, transgendered and their advocates, as well as the American Conservative Union, which sponsors the Conservative Political Action Conference, also known as CPAC. Grover is married to Samah Alrayyes, a Muslim and former director of the Islamic Free Market Institute.”

“....the gravity of the threat from radical Islam.”
Why do some still distinguish between Islam and radical Islam?
Radical Islam intends to actively kill Christians.
“Peaceful” Islam stands by passively but actively supports radical Islam waiting for the day that they too are called up for action.
Radical islam is a political fiction, probably created by people like Grover Norquist, to assuage people’s concerns about people in power....(or placed there by people like Norquist)....who have names and quesitonable loyalties. Hussein comes to mind.
He currently serves on Board of Directors of NRA. And is standing for re-election. No mention of his CAIR connection in NRA Magazine bio. He was recommended for re-election by Board.
In 1779, Benedict Arnold married Peggy Shippen, the daughter of a prominent Philadelphia Loyalist.
When I first learned of that a few years back I phoned the NRA to verify it as I could not believe it!!! (No way! Not the NRA!!!) They confirmed it and their response and I quote verbatim here was: “Sir, the NRA does not care what it’s board members do on their own time” end quote. Nice huh? They knew all about his anti American dealings with CAIR etc. and did NOT CARE. I quit ‘em that day never to be back. Norquist is an agenda setter, lobbyist, fund raiser and overall heavy hitter for the American based islamic terrorist front group, CAIR. He is SCUM and the once great NRA knew/knows but does not give a darn about it!

Anyone else notice the similarity between this loan scheme and the recent fold by the current administration regarding mandated health insurance coverage of contraceptives, including morning after pills, to employees of Catholic non-church institutions? Both simply recast the objectionable religious issue in a different light to attain the desired end. Loans can still be made to Muslims who will still pay for the service, while free contraceptives will still be provided to employees of Catholic institutions by their insurers, who will collect the cost through the premiums charged. Doubletalk sure can work wonders.”

Conservatives should never forget that the foxes are always in the hen house. We tend to trust those who claim to be conservative. Very few “movers and shakers” are to be trusted. Never forget.
Grover Norquist says Ending Birthright Citizenship is a Tax
It is clear that Norquist has no interest in social values and does not take national security seriously since he has taken CAIR under his wing. He must be dropped as soon as possible. Sarah Palin would be a good substitute as the center for conservative fundraising.
On Norquist and the NRA...
Don’t be surprised if Norquist isn’t funneling Saudi money to the NRA. That is the classic way it works.
I was shocked to read at another FR post about Grover Norquist and his Islam connections. I have a son currently in Afghanistan, so pay attention to these things. I worry about what his “no new taxes” for anything, including our military will do to our strength. Was the pledge part of a Muslim plan to weaken the US? Now I just hear GN on the radio discussing the Immigration Bill debate, and urging that something be approved. With the Boston Bombers, is he afraid that fewer Islamics/terrorists will be allowed in the country if nothing passes? Opinions anyone, or am I worrying unnecessarily?

As far as ATR goes, Grover has never done a thing for you and I as taxpayers, he works for Microsoft, GE, FAnnie Mae, foreign governments, etc...THAT is who he’s gotten tax breaks for, while we all send contributions to him.
However bad you think it is with Grover, it’s worse.
He calls us “Islamaphobic”, “Racist”, “bitter enders”, “restrictionists”, says we need to be ‘marginalized’like he did Jeff Sessions. He is the enemy within.
Meet Cesar Conda, Rubios chief of staff, close associate of Norquist.These two have destroyed every immigration enforcement attempt for 3 decades, including Prop 187 in Calif. Norquist tentacles are not just in DC, but in the state legislatures as well.
Meet Grover Norquist, the gang of 8 spokesman, the man who is writing the majority of this bill for his Corporate bosses, who wrote the Bush amnesty.
Grover Norquist: A Republican who acts like a Democrat?
If you want to know how much influence the Saudis have read this book: “Secrets of the Kingdom” by Gerald Posner. Over many decades they have woven a web of influence throughout this country and other countries as well. As the old saying goes—money talks.
If you don’t already know, Grover Norquist is married to a Muslim woman. Interesting, millions of women around and he picks a Muslim.
