Biden: “We are not the enemies of the Islam…”

via Biden reasures Pakistan in speech as bomb kills 18 – msnbc.com.

Biden sought to counter anti-U.S. conspiracy theories and ideas commonly heard in Pakistan, saying Washington has not imposed its anti-terror war on Pakistan, does not favor archrival India, does not want to break up the country and is not at war with Islam.

We are not the enemies of the Islam and we embrace those who practice that great religion in our country,” he said.

Washington has committed to giving Pakistan $7.5 billion in aid in the coming years to improve the lives of ordinary Pakistanis, stabilize the country and show its military and civilian leaders that the U.S. is a long-term friend.

…according to “the Islam,” non-Muslims (and many Muslims) are the enemy, and no amount of American money is going to change that.

Hours later, a suicide car bomber killed 18 at a police station.

Congressional Muslim Staffers website disappears after outed hosting terrorists on Capitol Hill

Posted on December 3, 2010 by creeping

We covered the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association many times, even noting their propensity for inviting terror-linked individuals and groups to the Capitol building.

The Keith Ellison and Andre Carson, (D-Islam), sponsored group appears to have deleted their entire website after Fox News published an article identifying numerous terrorists and terror-linked individuals that CMSA invited to their “prayer” sessions on Capitol Hill.

Excerpts from that Fox piece, Some Muslims Attending Capitol Hill Prayer Group Have Terror Ties, Probe Reveals, below:

An Al Qaeda leader, the head of a designated terror organization and a confessed jihadist-in-training are among a “Who’s Who” of controversial figures who have participated in weekly prayer sessions on Capitol Hill since the 2001 terror attacks, an investigation by FoxNews.com reveals.

The Congressional Muslim Staff Association (CMSA) has held weekly Friday Jummah prayers for more than a decade, and guest preachers are often invited to lead the service. The group held prayers informally for about eight years before gaining official status in 2006 under the sponsorship of Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., one of two Muslims currently serving in Congress. The second Muslim congressman, Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., joined as co-sponsor after he was elected in 2008.

Among those who FoxNews.com determined have attended the prayer services during the Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama administrations are:

Anwar al-Awlaki, the notorious Al Qaeda cleric believed to be hiding in Yemen and the lone American on the U.S. government’s capture or kill list, who conducted a prayer service on Capitol Hill shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Randall “Ismail” Royer, a former communications associate for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), who confessed in 2004 to receiving jihadist training in Pakistan. He is serving a 20-year prison term.

Anwar Hajjaj, former president of Taibah International Aid Association, which was designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. and U.N. in 2004.

Esam Omeish, the former president of the Muslim American Society, who was forced to resign from the Virginia Commission on Immigration in 2007 after calling for “the jihad way,” among other remarks.

Salam Al-Marayati, president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, who was forced to step down from a national terrorism committee post in 1999 for pro-terrorist comments.

Nihad Awad, CAIR executive director, who attended a Hamas meeting in Philadelphia in 1993 that was wiretapped by the FBI.

Johari Abdul Malik, Dar al-Hijrah imam, who made statements in support of convicted and suspected terrorists who attended his mosque.

Tariq Ramadan, a Muslim scholar banned from the U.S. for six years beginning in 2004 for his alleged ties and donations to terror groups. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lifted Ramadan’s ban in January.

—  Abdulaziz Othman Al-Twaijri, the head of a division of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, considered a foreign agent by the U.S.

It is unclear who else has attended these services, because there appears to be no public record of those CMSA has invited to Capitol Hill. The group’s website, included in the official congressional staff associations directory, displays an error message. And out of the more than 25 people associated with CMSA whom FoxNews.com contacted for this article — members, participants, guests, listed officers, congressional sponsors and Muslim advocacy groups — only one person was willing to speak.

“The U.S. Capitol ought to be one of the most transparent and public bodies, yet they get some public criticism about who they’re bringing in and they pull down their website,” said Patrick Poole, an anti-terrorism consultant to law enforcement and the U.S. military who has written about CMSA for the conservative blog Pajamas Media.

“That’s not behavior conducive to people drawing public salaries and working in the halls of Congress,” Poole said.

But a portrait of the Jummah prayer meetings can be gleaned through video footage, news reports, court records and social media posts. And what emerges is a “Who’s Who” of controversial characters cycling through the doors of the Capitol on the invite of CMSA.

“There is a pattern of seriously bad actors not just being involved with, but leading this organization,” Poole said.

“There really needs to be some kind of investigation into who else CMSA is or has been bringing onto the Hill.”

…video shot by Roll Call in April 2010 shows another set of controversial figures, including Anwar Hajjaj, who led the prayer.

We embedded that video, and you can watch it in this post, Muslims convert U.S. Capitol into mosque.

Hajjaj, tax filings show, was president of Taibah International Aid Association, which was designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. Treasury Department in 2004 for its ties to a network funneling money to Hamas.

Hajjaj and Usama bin Laden’s nephew, Abdullah bin Laden, co-founded World Assembly of Muslim Youth, which the FBI has deemed a “suspected terrorist organization” since 1996, according to a complaint filed in New York federal court on behalf of the families of Sept. 11 victims. The judge refused to dismiss the charges against the World Assembly in September, saying the charges against it were “sufficient to demonstrate that they are knowingly and intentionally providing material support to Al Qaeda.”

Hajjaj’s involvement with CMSA dates back at least to 2006, according to reports.

And there are others.

Fox has put together a slide show showing pictures of Jihadists, their names and organizations which Obama has invited to speak at the White House after he took office. Obama is in bed with some of the greatest criminals this side of the Altantic while our troops are dying to destroy organizations like Al Qaeda and the Taliban. It is truly shameful.

Kucinich headlines Muslim fund-raiser – CAIR group tied to Hamas, Islamist goals

http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=35883

The following story was posted on IslamOnline. The story was repeated at American Thinker at which time IOL deleted it from their blog. But the blog was archived and is posted in full. This Islamic blog names Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) and Henry Waxman (D-CA) as politicians who helpped to raise and donate $600,000 to Code activists to travel to Fallujah, Iraq. This money was aid money given to the very people who killed our troops. This is treasonous.

 

Bereaved US Families Share Iraqis Agonies of War

By Adam Wild Aba, IOL Correspondent

WASHINGTON, January 4 (IslamOnline.net) – With pictures of their smiling marine sons in their wallets and memories about the good old days always vivid, bereaved US families wrapped up last week a visit to Iraq in protest at the American occupation and in solidarity with thousands of Iraqis displaced by the US monster firepower.

Californian Rosa Suarez del Solar and her Husband Fernando, whose marine son died in Iraq in March last year, led the grief-stricken families, anti-war activists and families of 9/11 victims in their soul-searching tour, which kicked off on December 26.

And they were unified by a common ground: A strong determination to expose the US administration of George W. Bush and its misleading everything is going OK clichés to the entire world.

“We lost our son to an illegal war that is now destroying the lives of thousands of Iraqi children,” Fernando said. “We, as parents, must say ‘Stop the killing, comfort the children.’”

In addition to Rosa and Fernando, the delegation also includes Jeffrey Ritterman, of Physicians for Social Responsibility, Jodie Evans, co-founder of CodePink: Women for Peace, Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Global Exchange and CodePink, and Hany Khalil, a national organizer for the group United for Peace and Justice.

The organizations sponsoring their tour are CodePink, Project Guerrero Azteca for peace, Global Exchange, the Middle East Children’s Alliance, Physicians for Social Responsibility, Peace Action, United for Peace and Justice, and Voices in the Wilderness.

They secured diplomatic courtesy letters from US Senators Barbara Boxer of California and Raul Grijalva of Arizona and Congressmen Dennis Kucinich of Ohio and Henry Waxman of California.

Fernando said had it not been for the help of the two congressmen, their tour would have not seen the light due to obstacles laid by the Pentagon.

Fallujah Aid

Feeling for thousands of Iraqis killed and made homeless by the US military juggernaut, they raised US$600,000 worth of humanitarian aid to the refugees of the war-torn city of Fallujah.

In an Internet appeal, they raised over US$100,000 in donations from Americans, who found it hard to buy the sweet-talk of their administration and joined the anti-war alliance.

“Your donations have provided thousands of cold, grieving refugees, especially children, with blankets, sweaters, heaters, portable stoves, clean water and antibiotics,” the group thanked the benevolent in a CodePink’s online statement.

At least 2,000 Iraqis and 71 US soldiers were killed in a sweeping US raid into Fallujah in November, which displaced some 200,000 people and turned the city into a virtual ghost town.

The refugees started returning to their “uninhabitable” homeland last month, facing new draconian US police measures with their finger prints taken and their retinas scanned. They were further forced to wear special ID badges.

Cluster Bombs

Fernando said he believed it when he saw unexploded cluster bombs scattering across vast swathes of Iraq.

He said the tennis ball-like bombs threaten the lives of thousands of Iraqi children, who innocently used to sift through the debris and the rubble of their destroyed homes.

International aid agencies had said that hundreds of Iraqi civilians were maimed after tampering with the bombs with children making most of the victims.

Britain’s The Observer published last year a map showing vast areas of the occupied country at danger from live munitions.

The 12-person delegation met with Iraqi doctors, human rights workers, and families hurt by the occupation.

In Jordan, they were banned by authorities from holding a candlelit vigil outside UN headquarters on December 31.

“We are all very upset because we had done similar protests all over the world. We’re very shocked,” Benjamin told Agence France-Presse AFP.

As they were heading home, the families sang in unison, “All we are saying, is give peace a chance.”
