State Stands by its Man
Â Israel critic Jew-hating Â terrorist sympathizer ‘valued and highly credible,’ official says
The State Department defended itsÂ selectionÂ of a
controversial anti-Israel activist radical Islamic headbanger to participate in a human rights forum in Poland, praising the longtime Israel critic as “valued and highly credible.”
Salam al-Marayati hasÂ claimedÂ that the jihad terrorist group Hizballah is working for “liberation and resistance,” and has refused to call it a terrorist group. Likewise, al-Marayati has said optimistically that Hizballah’s Sunni counterpart Hamas will eventually gain acceptance. Zogby is an Islamo-Christian who needs to prove his dhimmi-loyalty, being a lackey for jihadists is the essence of his existence.
Al-Marayati has been a vociferous critic of Israel, once suggesting that Israel should be put “on the suspect list” for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. His organization, MPAC, has requested that militant groups Hamas and Hezbollah be removed from the list of United States-designated terrorist groups.Â Read more Â from GOVÂ»
The appointment of Salam al-Marayati, theÂ founder and Executive DirectorÂ of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), as the State Department’s envoy to a human rights conference has raised more than a few pairs of eyebrows. Al-Marayati expressed sympathy for Hezbollah and Hamas, as well as the possibility that Israel was behind the 9/11/01 attacks.
In addition, at least two prominent leaders of MPAC are on record as having defended Deputy Chief of Staff to Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin. In 2011, al-Marayati was the guest in a very friendly interview with another Abedin defender.
On August 23rd, MPAC postedÂ the op-edÂ of its Iowa Chapter coordinator,Â Shams Ghoneim,Â who also used to serve on MPAC’s national board. Ghoneim did what all of Abedin’s defenders have done; she smeared those who raised questions and went out of her way to ignore facts.
On August 26th, MPAC’s Washington, D.C. director, Haris Tarin,Â did the same thing.
MPACÂ attempted to disruptÂ the Republican National Convention with a demonstration designed to get Mitt Romney to condemn the Bachmann five for raising questions about Brotherhood infiltration of the U.S. government.
The subject was ‘hate speech’ and how to curtail it, certainly interesting subject matter in the wake of the attacks on U.S. embassies and consulates being blamed on criticism of Islam. Now, al-Marayati, a man who clearly wants to shut down speech critical of Islam while himself having a record of anti-Semitic positions, is being sent to a conference on human rights by a U.S. State Department that is already the subject of growing concerns in this area.
Here is the 2011 interview between Zogby and al-Marayati:
“Thank God for Anderson Cooper.” (Useful idiot!)
