“Infiltration of the federal government by members of the radical Muslim Brotherhood is worse than some have warned recently, says a former FBI special agent in Washington.”
“’Today in the White House, there are three members of the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama’s policy,’ he told the audience gathered for an Idea City Conference. ‘One is Rashad Hassan, who is the American ambassador to the 52-nation Organization of Islamic (Conference.’” Whistleblower, January 2013, p. 34
Muslim Brotherhood in the White House
Whistleblower, January 2013, p. 34-36
Before first joining the White House as a lawyer, Hussain regularly spoke to Brotherhood front groups and defended Brotherhood leaders like Sami al-Arian. Hussain at first denied defending the convicted terrorist, claiming he was misquoted, but then recanted after Politico.com produced a ipe-recording of his remarks.
He’s been in terror hotspots like Afghanistan, encouraging devotion to Islam.
In fact, Hussain has told Afghans the antidote to Islamic violence “is Islam itself.”
“I am of the opinion that one of the strongest tools that you can use to counter radicalization and violent extremism Islam itself, because Islam rejects violent extremism,” he said during a speech in Kabul.
Hussain, a devout Muslim, says promotion of the Muslim faith is “key” to the administration’s strategy to turn Muslims away from violence.
“We see that as one of the key elements of a strategy to address this type of violence,” he said.
The strategy is at odds with what the co-chairmen of the ’11 Commission recommended in their follow-up report on homegrown terror, “Assessing the Terrorist Threat: A Report on the Bipartisan Policy Center’s National Security Prepared-ness Group.”
The study found that Islam was motivating terrorists not just abroad, but inside Americas Muslim community. And it scolded U:S. leaders for pretending religion is not a factor in growing violence.
Still, Hussain insists: “When it comes to the problem of violent extremism, Islam is not the problem.”
Hussain helped draft Obamas conciliatory 2009 Cairo speech to Muslims. Also helping with the president s speeches and policies toward Muslims is Mogahed, whose pro-Islamic statements have been posted on the Muslim Brotherhood’s website, ikhwanweb.com.
Obama appointed the hijab-wearing Mogahed to the Presidents Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. On the British television Islam Channel, Mogahed defended Shariah, the barbaric Islamic legal code that treats women as second-class citizens.
Muslim women actually “associate gender justice or justice for women with Shariah compliance,” she argued. “It is only a small fraction’ that associate11 Shariah with ‘oppression of women.'”
She added that Muslims should work to integrate Islamic law into public law.
Another Brotherhood-tied figure influencing the White House is Azizah al-Hibn,
Obama appointed her in June 2011 to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom. A Muslim professor, al-Hibri is also the granddaughter of a sheik, who claims the Saudi criminal justice system is more moral than the American one because it accepts blood money from murderers.
Al-Hibri herself has proclaimed: “Islamic fiqh (law) is deeper and better than Western codes of law.”
She served on the advisory board of the American Muslim Council and made joint appearances with its leader, Abdurahman Alamoudi. Nowtlefunct, the AMC was a front group for the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, and Alamoudi was the Brotherhoods top leader in America. He is now behind bars as one of al-Qaidas top fundraisers in America.
Al-Hibri has also made appearances at Islamic Society of North America conferences. The Justice Department says ISNA is a Brotherhood front and has named the group an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to provide marerial support to Hamas terrorists.
Guandolo identified several other Brotherhood-connected agents of influence — all of whom are just as politically savvy and moderate sounding – who have worked their way into government positions, including:
- Arif Alikhan, who was assistant Homeland Security sec-rerary for policy development and is now a distinguished visiting professor of homeland security and counterter-rorism at the National Defense University.
- Syrian-born Kareem Shora, who isv Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s senior policy adviser.
- Navy Cmdr. Youssef Aboul-Enein and Jocelyne Cesari, a Muslim convert who previously worked with Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, both of whom teach at colleges within the National Defense University.
Guandolo blames the advances of Brotherhood figures on political correctness and lax vetting at government agencies.
Even at the FBI, he notes, an Iranian-born Muslim has taken over the agency’s weapons of mass destruction program.
Stung by workplace discrimination lawsuits by Arab and Muslim employees, the FBI has come under pressure to hire more Arab and Muslim agents and language specialists and promote existing ones, while clearing them for higher security levels, according the best-selling book “Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America.”
The book cites internal FBI records showing the agency has been sued by no fewer than 14 Arab and Muslim employees since 9/11. Some of the lawsuits have been solicited or aided by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, another Muslim Brotherhood front group. The FBI in 2008 cut off formal outreach with CAIR and its branch offices.
“This is happening as we remain silent. And I say that. as a liberal Democrat who worked and campaigned for Barack Obama,” said Fatah, a Pakistan-born journalist and activist who founded the moderate Muslim Canadian Congress to fight the spread of “Islamofascism.”
