Obama Asks Terrorism Help — from Muslim Brotherhood Spinoff

by Ben Johnson

As more sober minds consider ways to keep the Middle East from falling into the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood, Barack Obama is “fighting terrorism” by reaching out to the leader of one of the Brotherhood’s American creations. In the process, a White House official revealed that radical Muslims frequently advise the White House office headed by the president’s top adviser and alter ego, Valerie Jarrett.

Preemptive Groveling

Flush with instances of American Muslims supporting Islamic jihad, Rep. Peter King is set to launch his investigation into the radicalization of U.S. mosques, imams, and the faithful they serve later this week. Barack Obama, ever keen to reach out to the Muslim community, decided to get ahead of this by sending a deputy to plead with the extremists for cooperation. On Sunday, Deputy National Security Advisor Denis McDonough spoke to a Sterling, Virginia, mosque some believe is a model of moderate Islam: the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), led by imam Mohamed Magid. Indeed, McDonough began by thanking Magid by name.

Although the Sudanese-born imam presents himself as an ecumenical, anti-terrorism leader active in “interfaith” outreach, his current associations — and those of others at his mosque — present a different picture.

A Dangerous Mosque

This author exposed ADAMS’s radical connections nearly seven years. At the time, ADAMS’s chairman was Ahmad Totonji, an Iraqi-born citizen of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia who was named as a defendant in a $1 trillion lawsuit filed by more than 600 relatives of people who died in the 9/11 attacks. He served as Vice President of the Safa Group and the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT), which officials have linked to al-Qaeda, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Sami al-Arian. (Al-Arian served more than five years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to aid terrorism, and he is currently under house arrest awaiting his contempt trial, which has been mysteriously stalled.) ADAMS’s legal counsel, Muhammed Ashraf, was the attorney for Abdurahman Alamoudi, who is now serving 23 years in prison for laundering money for Muammar Qaddafi in a plot to kill a Saudi prince.

Magid was on the premises of ADAMS’s Herndon, Virginia, offices when federal agents stormed the facility in March 2002. The “Grove Street Addresses” provided the homes of more than 100 interlocking Muslim organizations that the government accused of providing material support for terrorism. After the raid, Magid assembled a “community building” meeting at ADAMS attended by a variety of extremists.

FBI Snitch, Reagan Euglogizer?

Somehow, this record got Magid invited to speak at Ronald Reagan’s funeral in 2004.

Since the federal raid, Magid has alleged that he works with the FBI to track down extremists. How telling Time magazine about one’s status as a federal snitch is supposed to further his mission is anyone’s guess. Yet Magid’s services appear to be less-than-robust. According to Time, “So far as Magid knows, no terrorist has tried to infiltrate the mosque.”

It is not only Magid’s mosque that cements his ties to extremists and terrorists — or the most influential advisers in the Obama administration.

An Unindicted Co-Conspirator

Magid is current president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The U.S. government listed ISNA as an unindicted co-conspirator in its trial of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF), which abused its charitable status “to promote and move forward Hamas’s agenda of the destruction of the State of Israel and establishment of an Islamic state in its place.” (In 2008, HLF was convicted of 108 charges, proving it funneled $12.4 million to Hamas.)

According to federal prosecutors at the HLF trial, “The evidence introduced at trial, for example, established that ISNA and NAIT [North American Islamic Trust] were among those organizations created by the U.S.-Muslim Brotherhood” (Emphasis added.) The Brotherhood’s most distinguished alumnus is al-Qaeda’s number two in command, Ayman al-Zawahiri. The MB currently appears poised to take a leadership role in the post-Mubarack Egyptian government, at the behest of the Obama administration (and some pseudoconservatives). Federal prosecutors say ISNA and NAIT “were intimately connected with the HLF and its assigned task of providing financial support to Hamas.”

Even these substantial ties around not ISNA’s only connections to Islamic radicalism. Its board of directors includes yet more. One director, Faizul Khan, personally knew the Ft. Hood shooter Nidal Malik Hasan for more than 10 years. The London Telegraph reports Khan said the jiahdist, who was known to have spouted extremist rhetoric long before the tragic shooting, “never seemed controversial.”

The president of ISNA Canada, Mohamed Bekkari, is embroiled in a financial scandal. In January, an audit published in Canadian media alleged the organization had mismanaged more than $600,000 in charitable donations to the poor. One of the five pillars of Islam requires faithful Muslims to pay Zakat, giving 2.5 percent of their income to the needy. The Toronto Star reports an audit revealed “of about $810,777 collected over four years, only $196,460 went to aid the poor.”

ISNA published the book by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the leader behind the Ground Zero Mosque, calling for a dawa (conversion) of America to begin on the rubble of the Twin Towers. When Americans recoiled, ISNA VP Azhar Azeez said their opposition came “out of ignorance. People who are opposing the mosque have never, ever interacted with Muslims in their lives.”

One of the featured speakers at the oh-so-moderate ISNA’s 46th annual convention was Cat Stevens, now Yusuf Islam, who defended the Ayatollah Khomeini’s fatwa against Salman Rushdie.

Such a record of extremism has earned ISNA access to the Obama administration’s inside track for radicals, extremists, and America-haters.

Valerie Jarrett Begs ISNA for Advice

Despite the organization’s role in a trial that exposed the America support system for  terrorism, the Obama administration forged close ties with ISNA from its opening moments. Valerie Jarrett invited then-ISNA president Ingrid Mattson to give a Muslim prayer at the president’s inauguration. Jarrett keynoted ISNA’s 46th annual convention — the same one addressed by Cat Stevens — and tried to get them involved in the White House’s Serve.gov website.[1]

In his address Sunday, McDonough let slip that radicals such as those in the audience had an inside track to advise Jarrett. McDonough said, “Over the past two years, I — along with my White House colleagues — have benefited from the advice of many of your organizations through our Office of Public Engagement.” OPE is headed by Jarrett, In the spring of 2009, OPE officials, including Jarrett herself, would host a “cultural policy summit” that included the most extreme elements of the Left.[2] One of its attendees, Sally Kohn, confirmed that the Obama administration uses far-Left groups to spread covert propaganda.

Access to OPE, and thus Jarrett, is not token privilege. In July 2009, Obama told New York Times reporter Robert Draper, “I trust her completely…She is family.” He authorized Jarrett “to speak for me, particularly when we’re dealing with delicate issues.” When asked, he admitted he runs every decision by her. An Obama 2008 campaign official told the New York Times, “If you want him to do something, there are two people he’s not going to say no to: Valerie Jarrett and Michelle Obama.”

Jarrett put it in a more creepy way: “We have kind of a mind meld.”

She has the president’s ear. We now know ISNA radicals have her ear.


1. Out of fairness, the coddling of ISNA is not entirely new. Steve Emerson of The Investigative Project on Terrorism reported the Justice Department co-sponsored ISNA’s 2007 national convention with taxpayer dollars. At the time, Sen. Tom Coburn, R-OK, tried to cut off funding for future ISNA events.

2. A characteristic example is the invitation of someone calling herself “Rha Goddess,” who boasts that she is the “former International Spokeswoman for the Universal Zulu Nation.” The current spokeswoman wasn’t available?

    Why wait for this commie clown to bring us to total ruin. IMPEACH NOW. CALL YOUR U.S. REP. AND DEMAND IT!

  2. kilrntex says:

    The Obama regime is filled with terrorist, so why would they call on the other ones? Maybe to pacify people who don't know better? This guy needs to be taken out of office and prosecuted for crimes against the USA along with all his cabinet and most of the Democrats in DC. I would donate for that cause, but it would be hard to do since most Repubs are on their boat. There's few in DC worth keeping. The muslims and islam religion is out to kill all Christians and Jews. It's that simple and it's time Christians wake up and except it face value. When they get their call from allah(Satan), they will start the killing of all of us. They call us "The Great Satan" just like the demoncrats call us racist. They are what they see in the mirror. Wake up and prepare for Holy War or jihad as the ragheads call it.

  3. BippyBellito says:

    now that Gitmo is back in business, it is time to place the Obama Administration in its entirety at this facility for their own safety. They are the most wreckless, ineffectual fools we've ever had in government.

  5. hijinx60 says:

    Bippy…did you really mean to say, "..for their own safety."? Of course you're right, but not just their safety, but for the safety of every single American and free man anywhere. Obama has done more to damage world economies, promote Islam, bring nations to the face of war, make America more dependant on Arab oil, damage race relations, and cause an outright rise in national anxiety than any single person ever. So, yes he needs locked up until he can be tried for treason.

  6. bobmann101 says:

    I have been saying for years that the Muslims WILL take over the US in time and we are not able to stop it unless the American people wake and/or have more children. Remember it was not the peace loving people of countries who wanted to defeat and take over another country. It was the radicals. If the members of the Catholic church did what the radical Muslims are doing they would be excommunicated from the church. I really believe the peaceful the peaceful Muslims??? are letting the radical Muslims do their dirty work. A true Muslim cannot be a good American citizen. Don't believe me then care enough to do your homework and research. Boldly question. Seek the truth. Take time to think where the US will be if more people decide not to vote.

    • Angelicsweep says:

      Bobmann101, you are correct in saying that muslims can not be good American Citizens, as their muslim faith will NOT LET THEM be! The sooner people understand this, the better off we will be. Course, what better way to take over America than get one of your own in the Whitehouse? Exactly what they did. The muslim faith goes right along with the alinsky way in that the ends justify the means. In putting up with obama, we are “charming” the cobra…only a matter of time before the snake strikes!

  7. memawsheart says:

    I really believe that there are peaceful Muslims that came to America to escape the Radical Islamics. But, when push comes to shove ~ who will they stand shoulder to shoulder with? The Radical Islamics have one goal and that is to promote the Sharia Law. Under Sharia ~ you either convert to Muslim or lose your head!
    As far as the Obama Administration goes ~ we ALL know that Obama has done nothing since his campaign days till present, but Lie, Manipulate, Distort, Endanger, Jeopardize, Exploit, etc… Oh and Spend, Spend, Spend; ~ Vacation, Vacation, Vacation; ~ Party, Party, Party and now he wants to Tax, Tax, Tax!!! People keep saying that he doesn't know what he's doing ~ but actually he does! And that is exactly what he was primed to do at this appointed time in his life. He was not voted into office and honestly shouldn't be there. My intuition tells me that the Big Unions/Diebold brought in fixed/hacked voting machines infected with a virus. Check out this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4FPuLNjvAc Diebold sold to ES&S (Election Systems & Software, Sept. 2009. See attached link: http://www.news.diebold.com/article_display.cfm?a…. I can only assume who is behind Diebold and ES&S. No proof here ~ just saying…
    It amazes me that so many people still defend Obama. I want more than anything for him to be a "One Term" President, but I am not sure that will happen, unless we get a very strong and powerful Republican to defeat him. There is a Congressman in Southern Florida named Allen West that has very strong principles, ideals, platform and military background as well as educated and very knowledgeable regarding Radical Islamics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFS5sl_La_A Read and watch everything you can about Allen West. Keep a close eye on this man.

    I received a email by Lee Billinger that tells How obama and the fed is devaluing the dollar and he tells how it will effect the world because the dollar is the world’s standard for money. when the dollar is broken most of the world is going down with it because too many other countrys are holding dollars as investments.when this happens then you will see one world government take over.(the new world order)I don’t under stand why none of the reps can’t under stand what is happening and why none of them will do any thing to stop it. this man obama is aproverbal liar you can’t belive any he says and he shits on the people at the same time.He will pat you on the back tell you how he is going to help you while he positions y0u to be stabbed in the back.He is a no good lying sob and we need to get his ass out of the country as soon as possible.He will lie to you tell you he is not going to do some thing that is detramental to our country and turn around and do some thing that is worse. he has been trying to take our guns away from us even going to the u.n. and trying to get a treaty passed to regulate and control fire arms in the U.S. and i don’t think the U.N. needs to stick their nose into THE U.S.A.’S business.Now the lying s.o.b. is saying that he belives in the second admendment and says that the people have a right to have guns. You just can’t belive any thing he says.He will do or say any thing at the moment that he thinks will help his agenda to take america down.And i am not seeing very many of these so called conservatives doing a whole lot to stop him.One of the most urgent things needed to be done is wild ass spending needs to be stoped If it shuts down the government then shut it down show him and the people that it can be done and will be done This out law out of control government has to be brought under control.of the people.

  9. Ridge Runner says:

    These companys that failed was indirectly brought about by the gov that we have had for a long time this idealogy of taking from the ones that have to give to the have nots and telling the mortage people to give people loans that they knew the people couldn’t pay is the idea of these lying thiving damn liberals.the fall of G.M was caused by G.M geting into the finance business and these dino unions.I say dino unions because they have served their purpose and need to be disbanded.there should have been no bail outs.The chips should have been allowed to fall and the let them pick up tje pieces and save what they could.The exspence of the bail outs was excessive and should not have been done with out being voted on by the people.Our government has been out of control for a long time these people have been just as they wanted to for far too long We the prople need to get a handle on it and bring it under control.

  10. Ron Powell says:

    They hide behind the walls of their mosques planning their agenda and the koran says it is alright to lie, cheat, or use whatever means to further their agenda (not religion, because it’s not a religion but a cause). So why would anyone be naive enough to believe any of the muslims? They are nothing more than a pack of third world wolves without the societal morals of wolves. To kill or maim their own wives, daughters, sisters in the name of religion is sick. They are like rabid dogs and should be treated as such.
