Obama rewards Hamas

In “President Obama Rewards The Hamas Lobby” in Forbes today, Steven Emerson skewers Obama’s anti-Israel, pro-jihad actions:

Why is the terrorist group more interested in attacking Israel than improving the lives of its people?

A ship packed with violent, radical “activists”  tries to run a blockade aimed at preventing terrorists from receiving illicit material. Video shows them beating commandos with clubs as they land on the ship, pelting them with slingshots and carrying knives.

What is America’s response? To demand that the nation whose soldiers were attacked conduct an investigation to “find out the facts.”

It is clear Israel sought to peacefully secure the Mavi Marmara on May 31 as it approached Gaza. But the hardened activists, who openly discussed their desire for martyrdom, weren’t going to let that happen. Fighting for their lives, the Israeli soldiers opened fire with their sidearms, killing nine people on the ship.

But that does not make the Obama administration’s demand for an investigation from an ally any more sensible. It was the first such demand made by the U.S. of another country, let alone an ally, in recent memory. There was no call for a probe on Russia’s treatment of Chechnyans, for Egypt’s persecution of the Christian Copts or for the murderous rampages against the Ahmadiyan Muslim sect in Pakistan.

Just Israel made the history books. Israel, however, has proof of what really happened. It released at least five videos on YouTube showing Israeli soldiers being attacked as they landed.

Moreover, details emerged about IHH–the Turkish charity instigating the attack–and its long history of abetting Islamic terrorist attacks and Islamic terrorist organizations. Reports produced by MEMRI showed the violent attack at sea was planned by radicals vowing to go to their “martyrdom.” By June 3 more YouTube videos appeared showing the efforts by the Turkish flotilla extremists to battle with the Israelis….

Hamas’s free lunch

Today Hamas stands on the cusp of international acceptance. It may take a week or a month or a year, but today Hamas stands where Fatah and the PLO stood in the late 1980s. The genocidal jihadist terror group is but a step away from an invitation to the Oval Office….J’Post has more

Resign… or Change, Mr. President

While defending his own policies President Obama has routinely been rude and sarcastic to his predecessor, George W. Bush. Yet Obama appears to be making the resident of the previous White House look like a genius compared to his own serious missteps in office. FoxNews

Florida: Muslim cleric pleads guilty to molesting boy, CAIR springs into action

Creeping Sharia

Visas for sharia-trained imams to preach sharia? WTF? This pious p.o.s. drugged little Muslim boys and then molested them. Hat tip anti-CAIR.

TAMPA — He came to the United States as a revered religious leader. On Thursday, he was deemed a sexual offender as he pleaded guilty to molesting a 13-year-old boy at a local mosque last year. Story continues below the fold….

Update:

US Terror Group CAIR Makes Excuses For Imam Who Molested Boy

US Terrorist group The Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) says the Imam is innocent, he only pleaded guilty because a Muslim cannot get a fair trail in the US.  Unfortunately for Mr. Shahade the facts tell a different story. Yid with Lid has the story

    State police revoke Muslim cleric’s chaplaincy

  • As usual, CAIR huffs & puffs:
  • Early this year the website of a self-styled national security expert (why the smears on Steven Emerson?) criticized Mustapha’s police appointment saying he was committed to violent jihad and once was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a large terrorism case. On Wednesday morning, the director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations will hold a news conference calling it “shameful” that the state police revoked Mustapha’s chaplaincy. Other Muslim groups will announce they are suing the website operator. ABC News/More on Sheikh Kifah Mustapha: Muslim Brotherhood Chaplain In Illinois State Police Department …

Illinois State Police revoke appointment of Hamas-linked Islamic cleric as chaplain, and Hamas-linked CAIR is furious

No surprise here, except to those who are fooled by Honest Ibe Hooper’s propaganda line at CAIR. “State police revoke appointment of Muslim chaplain,” by Manya Brachear for the Chicago Breaking News Center, via JW

‘THERE’S A GRAND DECEPTION GOING ON’:

AN INTERVIEW WITH TERRORISM EXPERT STEVEN EMERSON

The New York Post called him “the nation’s foremost journalistic expert on terrorism.” Richard Clarke, former White House counterterrorism chief, called him the “Paul Revere of terrorism.” For 16 years, Steven Emerson has been conducting research, reporting, writing, speaking, and testifying before Congress on the threat of radical Islam.

The author of six books, Emerson is also executive director of The Investigative Project on Terrorism, one of the world’s largest storehouses of data on radical Islamic terrorist groups, and the producer of “Jihad in America,” an award-winning film on radical Muslim groups in the United States.

The Jewish Press recently spoke with him.

The Jewish Press: In the past few months, a Muslim army psychiatrist killed 13 military personnel in Fort Hood, Texas, and a Muslim passenger on a flight to Detroit nearly succeeded in blowing up a plane with 290 passengers. How do we prevent such attacks from occurring in the future?

Emerson: Look, we stopped most attacks last year through intelligence and informants. That’s really the key.

Will that be enough to stop all attacks or are you inclined to agree with Dick Cheney’s statement in 2002 that the question is not if there will be another terrorist attack on U.S. soil, but when?

There’s no doubt there will be another attack. There’s no foolproof system for preventing an attack from occurring. Even the Israelis, who have incredible intelligence, can’t stop all acts of terror.

Would more extreme measures – such as barring all Arab immigration from the Middle East or keeping a closer eye on all mosques in America – do the trick?

I don’t believe that would be constitutional. Sometimes you can wiretap, but there has to be a criminal predicate. Law enforcement can’t just walk in and tape-record something.

As far as barring immigration from the Middle East, I don’t think that’s the proper way to go. But people applying for immigration from certain countries known to sponsor terrorism should undergo better and more extensive background checks.
