Skip to comments.“Duty is Calling Us Now”: Former Federal Prosecutor Andrew McCarthy on Muslim Brotherhood in America
Posted on 08/10/2012 8:15:02 AM PDT by bayouranger
Yesterday, I watched the Center for Security Policy briefing on the Muslim Brotherhood by Andrew C. McCarthy, former Assistant US Attorney for the Southern District in Manhattan and author of The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America . McCarthy was the prosecutor in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing federal trial in New York that resulted in the conviction and a life sentence for Egyptian blind Sheikh Omar Abdel- Rahman for that plot and planned bombings of New York City landmarks. One of the first actions by Egypts recently elected Muslim Brotherhood President, Mohammed Morsi, was to demand that Rahman be released by President Obama from his federal Super Max prison and immediately returned home to Egypt. McCarthy made reference to that demand from Egypts President Morsi and why federal prosecutors were successful in conviction of the blind Sheikh, a respected Islamic jurist who espoused jihad violence and was alleged to be a leader in the Egyptian terrorist group, al Gamaa al-Islamiyya . Al-Gamaa sought the overthrow of the Egyptian government and replacement with an Islamic Sharia compliant state. It was responsible for several hundred terrorist attacks in Egypt.
McCarthy offered effective rebuttal evidence to both Administration and Congressional criticisms of the five House members' letter sent to Inspector Generals of several executive departments requesting internal investigations of the Muslim Brotherhood 'presence' in these federal government agencies. Most notably a significant portion of McCarthy's remarks were devoted to the swirl of controversy regarding Ms. Huma Abedin the personal chief of staff for Secretary Clinton, whose family has close ties to MB leaders and Saudi Salafists/Wahhabists. McCarthy noted the Abedin family enterprise, The Journal of Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (JIMMA) is edited by Saleha Abedin, a Saudi womens college professor, leading member of the international MB sisterhood and Humas brother Hassan. As uncovered by Andrew Bostom, until 2008, Huma was listed as one of JIMMAs editors. Among the luminaries on the JIMMA board was the venerable Middle east expert and Princeton Professor Emeritus Bernard Lewis who served from 1996 to 2006. McCarthy addressed the Abedin family connections to Muslim Brotherhood preacher Yusuf al Qaradawi and terrorist Group, the Union of Good, as well as connections to the Saudi backed World Muslim League co-founded by Said Ramadan, son-in-law of MB founder Hassan al-Banna. Ramadans son, Professor Tariq Ramadan was given a Visa in 2009 by Secretary Clinton to teach at Notre Dame University, after a successful appeal in the New York Federal Circuit of Appeals. This despite evidence of funds provided to designated terrorist group and Muslim Brotherhood affiliate in Gaza, Hamas. We posted on these developments and previous documentation released by the Center for Security Policy in our Iconoclast Post, The Ties that Bind.
Towards the end of McCarthys brilliant presentation, he makes the telling argument that the Muslim Brotherhood influence campaign should become an important, bi-partisan issue In the Presidential election campaign. Having briefed Christian Zionists here on the Gulf Coast in late June on the Muslim Brotherhood influence campaign in America, I concur that average Americans will understand the grave nature of this threat to America and its special ally in the Middle East, the Jewish State of Israel.
Credit for this definitive rebuttal briefing by McCarthy goes to Frank Gaffney and the team at the CSP. Gaffney introduced the presentation noting McCarthys experience in prosecuting Islamic terrorism cases and his acknowledged expertise in Shariah and the Muslim Brotherhood campaign in America.
Here is a link to the transcript of McCarthys briefing published by PJ media. Watch the C-Span You Tube video of his masterful presentation.
Should You Take An Oath? Suppose you are confronted with a situation where you are contemplating whether or not you should take an oath. Here is a partial list of Biblical guidelines for taking oaths.
1. The object of the oath must be Biblical. It almost goes without mentioning that one cannot bind himself to do that which Scripture forbids, since no one can bind himself to sin.
2. What you are about to say must be true, or you must do what you are about to promise. In addition to undertaking a Biblical objective, you must also speak the truth and do what you say you will do. "If a man makes a vow to the Lord, or takes an oath to bind himself with a binding obligation, he shall not violate his word; he shall do according to all that proceeds out his mouth" (Num. 30:2) They took their Oath.

Our Government and the Muslim Brotherhood My Speech in Washington
Wasn't it actually Robert's botch, which Obama tried to correct? That moment thunderstruck me. Obama had to re-take the Oath in the SCOTUS chambers the next day.
The "Chicago Way" has something on Roberts.
Would you please explain what is happening in this picture?
And that tattoo says what kind of troop he is.
It’s a Combat Infantry Badge and one the most prestigious awards that can be given.
U.S. Army Sgt. Daryl Williams takes the oath of enlistment from his hospital bed at the 86th Combat Support Hospital in Baghdad, Iraq, July 9, 2008
He’s unfit for the oath of office.
That goes for both of them, IMHO. If Roberts is into it up to his neck, maybe that's why he flubbed giving the Oath. Just setting the record straight about the sequence of events, however.
IIRC, didn’t Kagan botch her oath as well or was it the wise puta?
Don’t know the answer to that one.
