    - -led opposition fighters JERUSALEM — The former director of Muslim outreach for President Obama’s 2008 campaign now is representing a charity raising money in the U.S. to fund the jihadist-tied Syrian opposition. Mazen Asbahi, a Chicago lawyer, resigned from Obama’s first presidential campaign after the Wall Street Journal reported that he sat on the board of an Islamic investment group called the Allied Assets Advisors Fund. Also on the board was Jamal Said, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation, which raised millions of dollars for the Hamas terrorist organization. The Allied Assets Advisors Fund was itself a...

    One watches with dismay as Democratic candidate Barack Obama manages to hide the truth on his longstanding, if indirect ties to two institutions: the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), listed by the US government in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding trial; and the Nation of Islam (NoI), condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for its "consistent record of racism and anti-Semitism." First, Obama's ties to Islamists: • The Khalid al-Mansour connection: According to former Manhattan Borough president Percy Sutton, Mansour "was raising money for" Obama's expenses at Harvard Law School. Mansour, a black American (né Don Warden), became...

    Last week, Barack Obama's campaign was burned yet again for its dalliance with Islamists - those who embrace Islam's repressive theo-political-legal code known as Shariah and who are working for its triumph in the West in general and the United States in particular. The episode is but the latest indication that the Democratic candidate hopes to win the White House by relying, in part, on the Jihadist vote. NBC reported Thursday that the Obama campaign's latest radical "Muslim outreach coordinator," Mouha Husaini, met last month in one of Washington's Northern Virginia suburbs - the heart of what has been dubbed...

    The Obama campaign’s Muslim outreach director participated in a meeting in mid September that was attended by several controversial Muslim activists, NBC News has learned. The Obama campaign now concedes that was a misjudgment, and that its top Muslim staffer would not have attended the meeting if she had known the full participant list beforehand. “Would a campaign staffer have attended if they were aware of the complete list of attendees? No,” said Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt in an email statement to NBC. The Muslim outreach meeting On September 15, newly named Muslim outreach director Minha Husaini spoke to a...

    No link. Heard it on Rush Limbaugh's radio program about a half hour ago. However, I believe Rush said he will be posting a link to Kincaid's piece on his website (rushlimbaugh.com). I checked the Accuracy In Media website (aim.org) and didn't see any updated stories there yet.

    The Obama campaign's Arab- and Muslim-American liaison has resigned after revelations of a brief association with a radical imam. Mazen Asbahi quit Monday because he did not want to be a "distraction" to the presidential campaign of US Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), The Wall Street Journal reported. Asbahi, a prominent Chicago lawyer, for a few weeks in 2000 had served on the board of the Allied Assets Advisors Fund affiliated with the North American Islamic Trust. Also serving on the board at that time was Jamal Said, an imam at a Chicago-area mosque known for his radical views. Said raised...
