I checked this out and this information turned out to be true.
See here :
Obama and Janet Napolitano Appoint Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.
and here :
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) is proud to announce that the DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore-in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim, who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC).

NOTE: Has anyone ever heard of a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...?
In light of what happened at Fort Hood, I wonder how much vetting these appointees went through.
Whenever a new government official is identified as “devout Catholic” it’s a signal for the fang-toothed left to search for something they can use against him/her.
When identified as “devout death cultist” we should be afraid - very afraid.
Vetting?, We don't need no stinkin' vetting for 0Dumbo's thugs!
Considering that we still don't know where zer0 was whelped and the fact that he is a muslim, I'd say not much, or none at all.
Jihad at the DHS.
Now he's in DHS.
Napolitano probably has him working overtime investigating any Americans who might "overreact" to poor, poor Major Hasan's job stress episode.
Catholics on the SCOTUS aren’t described as “devout” Catholics. They’re accused of it.
Nice to know DHS is being stocked with foreigners from the countries that are our worst enemies. But why should we be surprised?
Has Glenn Beck looked into these appointments?
BEING a muslim is not going to be perceived as an issue by most people.
Being a terrorist / jihadi / sharia supporter will be perceived as a conflict of interest.
Unless you can provide evidence of the latter, nobody will pay attention to the former.
We’re still a pluralist culture.
I’m sure they have been carefully vetted. Barry wants Islamists.
Actually Arif Alickhan is an American Citizen.
a Little backgrounder :
Arif Alikhan comes from Los Angeles Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosas office, where he served as Deputy Mayor for Homeland Security and Public Safety. As a key adviser to the Mayor, he has led the Citys efforts to develop homeland security, emergency management and law enforcement initiatives, including operational oversight of Los Angeles Police, Fire and Emergency Management departments. He is a former federal prosecutor and senior advisor to the U.S. Attorney General, and has partnered extensively with local, state and federal agencies
Alikhan was a career prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice from 1997-2006.
During that time, he served as Chief of the Cyber and Intellectual Crimes Section for the U.S. Attorneys Office in Los Angeles and as a Senior Advisor to the U.S. Attorney General in Washington, D.C., where he oversaw the national Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property Program for the Department of Justice.
Alikhan holds a J.D. from Loyola Law School and a B.A. from the University of California, Irvine.
(So, here we have a Muslim who graduated from a Catholic School)
