Federal outreach to Muslim American communities is a pillar of Obama counterterrorism strategy
washington post ^ | 5/25/2013 | ap

Within hours of the Boston Marathon blasts, government officials and Muslims in Boston called each other to offer assistance.

These calls were the fruits of years of cultivating such relationships in an effort to ultimately prevent the very type of attack Boston experienced April 15.

But the calls following the explosions were not about the unfolding investigation.

Representatives from the departments of Justice and Homeland Security offered support to Muslim communities in case they suffered backlash or threats,

So the Department of Homeland “Security” was basically telling the Islamists, Go ahead, attack and kill Americans. We’ve “got your back”?

Pillar. Interesting word choice.

All this outreach to prevent terror attacks. Apparently it’s not working. (Or maybe it’s working just the way Zippy wanted it to.)

When you keep doing the same thing and getting the same results, it’s time to try something different. How about stopping all the funding and “outreach?” How about banning Islamic immigrants and deporting the ones who are here, especially those who are here illegally? How about we cut them off at the roots? Let’s try that for a change.

Well, if outreach is the strategy, it obviously isn’t working.

“Representatives from the departments of Justice and Homeland Security offered support to Muslim communities in case they suffered backlash or threats,”

Amazing, the government worries about everyone but the mutilated and killed victims. Instead they are concerned with something that “might” happen to members of the universal death cult.

Knock me over with a feather.

A pillar as sturdy as Silly Putty.

Down South we've got a whole difference concept of "outreach" ...

Question is - Why is a born and bred Communist (Barack Obama) be so interested in
mixing his ideology with that of Muslims?

We can take a bittersweet solace in that if leftist progressives ever come to dominate America fully that Islamists will make their reign short. I personally don’t understand the left and their blind defense of Islamists. Its like the old communist Vietcong narrative played over again because it will be they that are slaughtered and they that end up in political prison camps. Its like they don’t understand that once we Christians and conservatives are suppressed that they will be the target.

"“How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.”....Winston Churchill

Though it was never a critic, AP has now found the droppings in the cabinet, the chewed corners of its phone logs and the odd aroma that permeates its office. It is the smell of fear....that AP will attempt to mitigate by spreading subservience.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION APPROVES 50 MILLION DOLLARS IN AID TO KENYA. O'S HALF BRO READY TO CASH IN---RUNS THE TAX-EXEMPT "DO-GOOD" OBAMA FOUNDATION

NAMED FOR DEAR OLD DAD The tax-exempt “charity” named in honor of their Dad, is run by President Barack Obama’s half-brother Malik.

The tax-exempt Obama foundation, fast-tracked by Lerner for IRS tax-exempt status, is based at a Virginia UPS store, according to its website. The organization’s IRS filings list another Virginia address that is actually a drug rehab center where the foundation does not appear ever to have been based.

As first reported by The Daily Caller, the foundation was speedily approved for IRS exemption by Lois Lerner, the self-same IRS senior official at the center of the targeting of conservative organizations that have waited over two years to receive tax exempt status. The IRS thoughtfully gave Obama Foundation retroactive fund-raising status.......which it stupidly never applied for.

============================================

The tax-exempt Barack H. Obama Foundation is run by Abon’go “Roy” Malik Obama, the half-brother of Barack Obama. The foundation’s mission statement is “to provide people everywhere with resources to uplift their welfare and living standards in memory of dad---Barack H. Obama: in the region of his birth, Kenya, and beyond.” Its guiding principle is “the inherent belief that no one can truly enjoy the riches he has reaped if his neighbor suffers....."We seek to elevate the human condition so that everyone can live in dignity and truly enjoy having one another as neighbors.”

(same old, same old sap-happy do-goodniks)

Despite raising more than $250,000, the alleged charity doesn’t seem to have done much. Its website claims the organization has built a madrassa and was building an imam’s house as well as some “proposed latrines,” but there is no other evidence that the nonprofit was working to “mitigate social-shortcomings in areas of education and literacy, health and well-being, poverty, and lack of community infrastructure in such basic needs such as water, electricity, shelter and sustenance,” as the site says.

Alton Ray Baysden, a former Dept of State employee, allegedly a registered Republican, who helped start the Barack H Obama foundation, declined to comment before seeing copies of a reporter’s passport and govt ID, along with a description of the article’s “motivation” and “slant.”

Repeated reporters' phone calls went to the organization’s voicemail and were not returned.

Straight out of Fareed Zakaria, who in a CNN PRE-RECORDED (recorded BEFORE Obama’s speech) outlined exactly the same thing using exactly the same terminology.
