‘Islamic Democracy’ Does Not Make Statesmen out of Terrorists … or Politics out of Jihad
PJ Media ^ | 8/2/12 | Andrew C. McCarthy

The Obama administration will not explain how it came to issue a visa to Hani Nour Eldin, a known member of the Egyptian terrorist organization Ga’amat al-Islamia, the Islamic Group (IG). The explanation is not forthcoming because what it portends is even more sinister than this one infuriating incident.

To call the IG a “terrorist organization” is not just purple prose. The IG is a terrorist organization that has carried out actual mass-murder attacks. There is a formal legal process under which such groups are “designated” as terrorist organizations. The IG has long been formally designated under that process. Once that process has occurred, any American citizen who tries to provide material support to members of a designated terrorist organization — i.e., any American citizen who tried to do what the Obama administration has done for Eldin — would be in jeopardy of being convicted of a serious federal felony worth upwards of 15 years’ imprisonment.

And Hani Nour Eldin is, indisputably, a member of the IG — we are not speculating here. Eldin is quite proud of his membership. He has been unabashed about it. The Obama administration, moreover, does not even attempt either to deny that Eldin is an IG member or to suggest that the issuance of a visa to him — to say nothing of the subsequent meetings he was invited to have with top American national security officials — was the result of some misunderstanding or monumental screw-up. Eldin was very intentionally brought to Washington. Despite the fact that the leader of his organization — the “Blind Sheikh,” Omar Abdel Rahman — is responsible for massive terrorist attacks against American civilians, Eldin was hosted here as if he were a politician rather than a terrorist.

Democracy has one primary flaw. The votes of millions of sinners can’t yield a good end result.

You know, I'm actually starting to think that the Barry Bunch would provide intelligence and material to one of these terror outfits if they would direct their attack at a target in a way that would benefit Barry's reelection.

Barry sure wants to get all snuggly with this latest batch of Muslim terrorists - because they're “moderate” terrorists, after all.

Oh, and don't forget to mention Barry's strong and abiding Christian faith somewhere in there.
