Oh Nancy!! What on earth have you been doing????


Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi headlined a high-dollar fundraiser in May that was attended by U.S.-based Islamist groups and individuals linked by the U.S. government to the Hamas jihad group and to the Egypt-based Muslim Brotherhood movement.

The donors at the undisclosed May 16 event included Nihad Awad, the co-founder of the Council on American Islamic Relations, according to data provided by the nonpartisan Investigative Project on Terrorism.

The CAIR group was named an unindicted conspirator in a 2007 trial of a Hamas money-smuggling group


Wonder how much of this money ended up in Obama's campaign account? Seems like the bulk of it is for House Reps up for election..


A covertly-taken photograph provided by the IPT shows Pelosi standing near Awad at the fundraiser. Roughly 30 people attended the fundraiser, according to the IPT.

The cheapest tickets cost $5,000, and the most expensive were $30,800 per couple, according to the event invite from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which used the cash to fund Democratic candidates.



Since the May event, the DCCC has distributed a large amount of money — likely including the Islamists’ funds — to many House candidates who are part of the DCCC’s “Red to Blue” effort, which is trying unseat 55 Republican members of the House.

The list of Red to Blue candidates who got DCCC cash includes Connecticut’s Elizabeth Esty, Iowa’s Christie Vilsack, Maryland’s John Delaney and Florida’s Patrick Murphy.

Murphy is running against Florida Republican Rep. Allen West, an outspoken opponent of the Islamist groups. The groups have targeted him for defeat in 2012.


What a flippin circus of idiots led by their ringmaster !!!!!!

Maybe if the Islamists buy enough seats in Congress, they can get the Constitution changed to agree with Sharia Law.

Oh yay! What wonderful things we have to look forward to happening in our future.

Jibeho, jibeho, you can got blue showing in here how our government has sold themselves like whores to private interest and foreign pimps, but people will still wave their American flag and think that America is still in the hands of the people.

Already entire states belong to foreign countries private interest due to the pursue of investors in order to avoid bankruptcy.

Americas government is nothing but a big whore and we the people are the collateral.

If you lived in an area of constant fighting you wouldn't be a fan of the other guy. Remember Americans were terrorists to the Brits.

He was however invited by President George Bush to stand with him at the Islamic Center of Washington days after the 9/11 attacks and before that, Vice President Al Gore appointed Awad to a civil rights advisory panel for the White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security. In hind site maybe He is the one responsible for 911. Thats right him and Bush standing in DC enjoying their work. Or neither and it was cave dwelling idiots that were funded by the CIA a long time ago and then decide we were d1cks and wanted pay back.

Nice propaganda piece. Notice how they use the word Islamist to impart extremism?

And Awad has been involved with other people in politics, on both sides, as my fellow member pointed out.

So don't get your panties all worked up.....this is nothing new nor nefarious. It's just a propaganda article to get the dummies outraged because they know they will not look any further in to it.

Sad part is that many of the MSM outlets do not shed light on any of the surmounting evidence(s).

Awad is no Boy Scout and clearly plays the side that can benefit him the most....a political whore...


Eager to gain influence with whichever political party holds power, Awad has courted Democrats and Republicans alike. During the administration of Bill Clinton in 1997, Awad was appointed to the Civil Rights Advisory Panel to the White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security. And during the 2000 presidential election cycle, he figured prominently in the American Muslim Political Coordinating Committee, a network of American Islamic organizations that assisted in establishing a Muslim voting bloc which endorsed George W. Bush. In the 2006 mid-term elections, Awad contributed thousands of dollars to the campaign of Minnesota Democrat Keith Ellison, the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress.


He supports Hamas to the Hilt and has long record of being anti Israel!

www.discoverthenetworks.org...


Islamist [ˈɪzləmɪst]
adj
(Non-Christian Religions / Islam) supporting or advocating Islamic fundamentalism
n
(Non-Christian Religions / Islam) a supporter or advocate of Islamic fundamentalism


Awad is an Islamist... plain and simple!

Deny it all you want...Awad has found a comfortable place to roost within the leftThe Islamist fundraiser illustrates the increasing ties between American progressives and the various Islamist groups.


That burgeoning alliance was boosted by President Barack Obama’s 2009 speech in Cairo to Muslims, including Egyptians. Prior to the speech, he insisted that Egypt’s secular government allow Muslim Brotherhood members to attend the speech. In 2011 and 2012, he pressured the Egyptian military to let the movement take power after it won elections.

The ties were also highlighted at the Democrats’ Charlotte convention, when party leaders presented and passed a 2012 party platform that excluded several Israel-related sections, including a declaration that “Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel.”

Awad, in an Arabic-language interview on the Brotherhood-friendly station Al Jazeera, commended the 2012 draft as “an indication that the Democratic Party’s political platform with regard to the Middle East is developing.”




The Islamist leaders at the DCCC fundraiser share many ties and ideological goals with the Muslim Brotherhood and with associated jihad groups, including Hamas.

The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928. Its current leaders seek a revival of orthodox Islam, including the supremacy of sharia, which uses Islamic texts to govern many aspects of personal and communal life. For example, sharia denies any role for democracy, ethics or rights, and also subordinates legislators to imams, women to men and non-Muslims to Muslims.


Awad...


In 2007, the extensive network was exposed by the Department of Justice during a trial of the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation. Four Muslims were found guilty of smuggling money to the Brotherhood’s affiliate in the Gaza Strip, Hamas.

During the trial, the Department of Justice named Awad’s CAIR group as an unindicted conspirator in the conspiracy. Since then, FBI officials have refused to meet with Awad.



Others in attendance for Pelosi's very cozy event


Another attendee at the fundraiser was Mazen Asbahi, who quit President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign when the Wall Street Journal described his ties to a hardline imam, Jamal Said, who runs a major mosque in Chicago. Said is also on the Holy Land trial’s list of unindicted conspirators.

Perhaps the most senior Islamist at the fundraiser was Jamal Barzinji.

Starting in 1963, Barzinji helped create the overlapping and extensive network of Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated groups in the U.S.

In 2003, David Kane, a senior Special Agent with the United States Customs Service, explained a government request for a search warrant of Barzinji’s office by telling a judge that “I believe that Barzinji is not only closely associated with [Palestinian Islamic Jihad]… but also with Hamas.”

After the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, Awad flew to Oklahoma to aid in the relief effort. He personally met with Governor Frank Keating and gave the governor a sizable donation for the victims’ fund on behalf of the American Muslim community.


Frank Keating, a Republican, took money from this man.



In his professional capacity, Awad has also personally met with former Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell to discuss the needs of the American Muslim community.




Awad is one of the signatories of A Common Word Between Us and You, an open letter by Islamic scholars to Christian leaders, calling for peace and understanding.




A few days after the September 11 attacks in 2001, Awad was one of a select group American Muslim leaders invited by the White House to join President Bush in a press conference condemning the attacks and acts of anti-Muslim intolerance that followed

Unfortunately, you have proven that you have no clue what you are talking about.

You find some links to insinuate this man is an extremist and connected to the Left, but you don't seem to mention his connections to the Right.

And how dare them ignorant Leftist commies allow this man to show compassion, and donate money, for the victims of 9/11 and the OKC bombing....oh, that was the Republicans.


Go ahead and shake in fear....them brown-skinned Islamists want to take away your guns and Old Milwaukee! They also want to impose that Sharia law so they can make your women cover their faces and stone them to death in the public square if they are raped by ravaging rednecks.

Nice try, but some of us are able to do this weird thing called thinking.......we don't fall for the propaganda.

Nice stuff... Read it all and it was all prior to 2007 when CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator. Time to get current...

FBI on CAIR
www.investigativeproject.org...

Whatever helps you sleep at night...


In a secret court ruling earlier this year, a judge denied a request by three prominent American Muslim organizations to reverse federal prosecutors’ designation of the groups as unindicted co-conspirators in a criminal case alleging illegal support for Hamas, according to a source familiar with the ruling and to indications in court files.

That's why they have attempted to ingratiate themselves with whatever party holds the power and their veiled attempts at civic service to paint themselves as a benevolent bunch.

I don't understand. How does being on a civil rights panel make one solely responsible for 9/11?

The Council on American Islamic Relations - (so far no big deal)

which the "nonpartisan" Investigative Project on Terrorism named an unindicted conspirator.

I know a guy who was named as a conspirator in a case based on the fact he was acquainted with a heroin dealer. He never had anything to do with that drug but because he knew the person who had been "indicted" they called him a conspirator and he had to prove his innocence. In this case, the law determined guilty until proven innocent.


Now who is this non partisan Investigative Project on Terrorism?
Here is what I dug up on them and their founder Steven Emerson

The Investigative Project on Terrorism


The Investigative Project is registered as a non-profit

charity. However, in 2008 the Investigative Project

transferred $3.49 million to Emerson's for-profit company

(SAE Productions). Ken Berger, the head of Charity

Navigator (a non-profit charity watchdog) criticized the

Investigative Project as being a front organization collecting

funds for SAE Productions. According to

USA Today, the Investigative Project solicits money by

telling donors they're in imminent danger from Muslims

.



"He's trying to say people who move to this country and set up charities and think tanks are associated with Hamas and Islamic Jihad and Hezbollah, that there's some kind of connection between them and Sept. 11, that there's a liaison or support network. He doesn't know what he's talking about."



Adrienne Edgar, writing in The New York Times Book Review described Emerson and Cristina del Sesto's 1991 book Terrorist, as "marred by factual errors (such as mistranslations of Arabic names) and marked by "a pervasive anti-Arab and anti-Palestinian bias.
