Rep. Frank Wolf Calls Out Grover Norquist on Jihad Ties
Last Tuesday on the House floor, Rep. Frank Wolf (R.-Va.) showed more courage than most of the members of his party have ever managed to summon: He called out influential Republican power broker and anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist for, among other things, his close ties to jihad terrorists and Islamic supremacists.
Many anti-jihadists have been concerned for years about Norquists jihad ties, and his deleterious influence on the Republican Party, but that concern ended abruptly when it turned out that Norquist was close friends with Rick Perry. People who had been on record repeatedly criticizing Norquist for being in bed with Islamic supremacists suddenly discovered that, hey, everyone does it (ignoring the fact that Norquist is closer to Perry than he is to other candidates), and whats a few Hamas ties among friends, anyway?
But not Wolf. On the House floor, Wolf said of Norquist, "Documentation shows that he has deep ties to supporters of Hamas and other terrorist organizations that are sworn enemies of the United States and our ally Israel. He pointed out that around the years 2000 and 2001, Mr. Norquists firm represented Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was convicted two years later for his role in a terrorist plot and who is presently serving a 23-year sentence in federal prison.
Norquist, reported Wolf, also associated with terror financier Sami Al-Arian, according to Mary Jacobys reporting in March 2003, in the St. Petersburg Times. Al-Arian pled guilty in 2006 'to a charge of conspiring to provide services to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), a specially designated terrorist organization, in violation of U.S. law,' and is under house arrest, according to a Department of Justice press release. The Palestinian Islamic Jihads paramilitary wingthe al-Quds Brigadeshas conducted numerous attacks, including large-scale suicide bombings, according to the National Counterterrorism Center.
These are the kinds of people for whom Norquist opened doors. Norquist, said Wolf, served as a key facilitator between Al-Arian, Alamoudi and the White House. In June 2001, Al-Arian was among the members of the American Muslim Council invited to the White House complex. ... The next month, the National Coalition to Protect Political Freedoma civil liberties group headed by Al-Ariangave Norquist an award for his work to abolish the use of secret intelligence evidence in terrorism cases.
Wolf also pointed out that Norquist even used Americans for Tax Reform to circulate a petition in support of the Ground Zero Mosque,' which 70% of Americans oppose. Why would Americans for Tax Reform, Wolf asked, circulate a petition in support of the Ground Zero Mosque? For the families of those who lost loved ones on 9/11 or during operations in the War on Terror, concerns about the 'Ground Zero Mosque were neither a ploy nor a distraction, as Norquist described it.
Norquists influence on the Republican Party is extraordinarily damaging, as it keeps on leading so many to turn a blind eye to the stealth jihad that Norquist continues so energetically to advance. Congressman Wolf deserves congratulations, and the gratitude of every patriot, for having the courage that so many lack, and calling out Norquist on the floor of Congress.
In his response to Wolf, Norquist showed how thoroughly he has mastered the tried-and-true tactic of his Islamic supremacist partners: He cried racism, smearing his opponent, and claiming victim status when his wrongdoing was pointed out, instead of responding with anything substantive.
Norquist dubbed Wolfs allegations disgusting, claiming that some staffer of his went onto the racist websites, you know, dug up stuff from 10 years ago. Im married to a woman whos Muslim, and its sad and its disgusting. It reflects poorly on him. I think given his district, hes going to spend a lot of time apologizing for getting into the gutter and anti-Arab and anti-Muslim bigotry. I suppose this staffer who got this stuff off websites did as much chucking [sic] as the idiots who put it forward.
Norquist said that Wolfs charges were just silly. Its just a series of rants that mean nothing and have no effect on anything, and are neither honorable or honest. But Wolf stood by his remarks, saying: Theres a clear pattern there. You need to look at who hes associated with.
Indeed. Unless, of course, youre so in thrall to the prospect of a Rick Perry presidency that suddenly a guy whos in bed with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood doesnt seem so bad after all.

“Stop Jihad Now!”
Are Newtie and Willard SA shills?
Ok...if this the best “anti-tax increase” advocate that conservatives and the Tea Party have, we damn well better be shopping for a new one!
I’m weary of smear jobs, but I don’t like the coincidences that seem to surround this guy.
In fact I’ve dismissed most of the negative press thrown Norquist’s way, because he’s been the guy pushing hardest against the “super-committee” caving on taxes.
Right now, I don’t care if he get’s cleared...
I want a new anti-tax increase advocate NOW!
How long will it take for some one to claim that Perry is in bed with the jihadis?
Why would we trust anyone who is married to a muslim????? They will always stand by their own.....
I wish I had Wolf as my Congressman. I have followed his work for years, and in foreign policy he was a champion of Southern Sudanese long before it became a popular cause. From everything I have heard, he is trustworthy individual. Can one say that of Norquist?
Not only that, and though I doubt it needs repeating here among the most intelligent, informed and astute Conservatives in the country, it is a FACT that though Mooselimb men can marry women outside the faith, Moozie women CAN NOT, thus it is more than likely that this BOTTOM-FEEDING, TRAITOROUS, RAT-BAS-TURD (sic) has converted and gone over to the "Dark Side!"
I've been one who has been railing against this SCUMBAG here over and over and we Freepers should do everything we can to pressure any Con Group or person to dissociate themselves from Norquist.
BTW, "Hey Grover, while you are at it and playing the race card, care to let us all in on what "RACE" you and your fellow Musselmen, are again?"
If he says Norquist is a slime, Norquist is a slime.
"The Muslim Brotherhood has been wildly successful in its plan to become part of America's civil culture and to infiltrate the institutions of America's civil government, including the White House and both political parties, and the conservative movement as well. Suhail Khan is the proud son of Mahboob Khan and his protégé, as he is also the protégé of the convicted terrorist Abdurahman Alamoudi.
Sponsored by his longtime patron Grover Norquist, who has been a pillar of the conservative movement, Suhail Khan was given a White House appointment in the Bush Administration and facilitated Alamoudi's access to the president. Suhail then became an Undersecretary of Transportation where he received a top security clearance. With Grover's support Suhail has also been made a board member of the American Conservative Union and was the moderator of a panel on Religious Liberty yesterday at this event.
Suhail Khan used his offices in the Bush White House with Grover's connivance to carry water for the terrorist Sami al-Arian in an attempt to ban the use of secret evidence in terrorist trials - a proposal that thanks to Grover's immense political influence was actually endorsed by President Bush and was only thwarted by the 9/11 terror attacks.
"Connections to Alamoudi, who is serving 23 years in prison for jihad finance activity, connections to Hamas-linked CAIR, connections to Hamas-linked ISNA -- and check out Khan's own words: "The early Muslims loved death, dying for the sake of almighty Allah, more than the oppressors loved life. This must be the case when we are fighting....What are our oppressors going to do with a people like us? We are prepared to give our lives for the cause of Islam."
This is a man who has exerted an extraordinarily negative influence upon conservatives, selling them a bill of goods about the Religion of Peace and about himself, and aiding the execrable Grover Norquist in opening the corridors of power to Islamic supremacists.
"Grover Norquist, longtime enabler of Islamic supremacists, is at it again -- warning Republicans to stay away from the issue of the Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero, claiming that it will hurt them in November despite the fact that polls show that 70% of Americans oppose the mosque.
"Some Republican figures urge candidates not to focus on NYC mosque issue," by Karen Tumulty in the Washington Post, August 18:
"The support for criticizing a mosque is half a mile wide and an inch deep," conservative activist Grover Norquist warned. "And at the end of the process, the only people who will remember it are the people who feel threatened by this -- not just Muslims, but Sikhs, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and Mormons."
There is a ton of info on this despicable cretin and I hope that enough people are made aware of his conduct and work to banish him from both the Republican party, if not the country. Recently it was reported that the corrupt Justice Dept had moved to reduce the sentence of a top Muslim Brotherhood (or Ikhwan in Arabic) operative and al-Qaida financier: Abdurahman Alamoudi and there is speculation that considering his close association with Alamoudi, that Norquist may be behind this travesty.
Do you live in a Muslim country under Islamic law? Is that your problem?
In the US we have the possibility of civil marriage. Is it different where you live?
HOORAY Rep. Frank Wolf!
HOORAY Robert Spencer!
