Hesham Islam spends most of his time out of the office, building relationships.
* Americans are often seen to be naive, gullible and foolish. But here we have a case of blatant stupidity that beggars belief:
Here’s a profile of the Muslim aide to Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England, Hesham Islam, who reportedly was behind the firing of a Pentagon specialist on Islamic extremism: Senior Advisor to Deputy Secretary Focuses on Relationship Building.
Hesham Islam, special assistant for international affairs to Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England, spends a rare moment in his Pentagon office. Islam spends most of his time out of the office, building relationships.
As he represents the Defense Department around the country and the around the world, England said, he counts on Islam’s insights and advice. “Hesham helps me understand people’s different perspectives and how they see things,” England said. “He has a cultural background that’s very helpful, but he also works at it very hard to get a better understanding of people and how they think.”
Islam works tirelessly to befriend diplomats from around the world, learning from each about their country, its sensitivities, and its requirements. “I help them understand us, as Americans, and help my boss understand them,” he said. “My goal is to bridge the gap and help people understand each other, even if we are different.”
Not all Islam’s efforts are directed toward other countries. A Muslim, Islam works closely with the Muslim-American community, encouraging its members to integrate into American society and take an active stand with the United States in the war on violent extremism. “This war can’t be won by just Americans,” he said. “It’s a war that has to be fought by Muslims. Islam has been hijacked, and it is time to take it back.”
Islam said he’s proud of the 5,000 Muslims actively supporting that effort in the U.S. military. Among them is his own son, Navy Lt. j.g. Rami Islam, who serves aboard the carrier USS Carl Vinson. “As a parent, I’m very proud that my son is serving this country,” he said.
* 5000 Muslims in the US army? Quite a worry…
After growing up in wartime, first in Egypt, then in Iraq, Islam hopes this dialogue can help eliminate differences that can lead to misunderstanding and conflict. “If people talk, people don’t fight. If they talk, they don’t argue,” he said. “I try to bring talking and understanding into the dialogue.”
* If bullshit had wings…
“Hesham has wonderful friendships and relationships, and therefore he can give me extraordinarily good advice in dealing with countries and people,” England said. “I take his advice, and I listen to him all the time.”
* That’s why you sacked the only Islamic Law scholar on the Joint Staff, you dill…
England said he rarely disagrees with Islam’s guidance. “After all,” he said, “if you have a good doctor, you listen to your doctor, right?”
* Brother, you don’t need a doctor: you need a shrink and you need to be locked up in an asylum!
Â· “Interviews with dozens of former classmates, teachers, neighbors and friends show that Obama was not a regular practicing Muslim when he was in Indonesia” â€“ implying he was an irregularly practicing Muslim.
“Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.” — Ayatollah Khomeini
* ‘There is no humor in Islam’- said Khomeini. But Yusuf rubs it, because he has a cartoon, and not only that: in his latest blob entry he tries to smear the ‘neo-cons’- and one of them is Daniel Pipes. Smearing and vilifying apostates like Hirsi Ali, anti-Islamofascists like Daniel Pipes & Sheik yer’mami is Yusuf’s specialty.
* Yusuf dreamin':
” I spent Christmas Eve sitting with my Jewish friend singing carols and enjoying world-class church music at St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney. We were surrounded by Catholics of all nationalities. Could this spectacle happen only in Australia? Who knows. “
Hahahaha! Prove it, Yusuf. Prove it!
* Sounds like the Wolf went out with the fox and the goats and they all eat grass together and lived happily ever after… good one, Yusuf!
