Another Hamas-linked State Dept Advisor Exposed

Ryan Mauro writing at Radical Islam, Islamist Adviser to the State Dept and USAID Exposed

Abed Ayoub, the CEO of Islamic Relief USA, a powerful charity with links to Hamas is an official advisor to the State Department and USAID (U.S. Agency for International Development), a RadicalIslam.org investigation has found.

Ayoub has been advising the Obama Administration since at least April 2010. He and his organization have been publicly embraced by President Obama and Vice President Biden.

Ayoub was born in a Palestinian refugee camp and raised in Jordan. After high school, he moved to Yugoslavia and Germany and ultimately ended up in California. He became a volunteer for the Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA) and went on to become its CEO in 2008. He is a governance committee member of Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW), IRUSA’s parent group. He is also on the Board of Trustees of the Center for Interfaith Action on Global Poverty.

Ayoub joined the State Department’s Religion and Foreign Policy Working Group in November 2011, specifically the Sub-Group on Faith-Based Groups and Development and Humanitarian Assistance, according to IRUSA’s press release. It says he will “take part in dialogue and provide input on relevant topics including the challenges and opportunities for partnership. The group also will identify model action programs or projects for collaboration between the U.S. government and NGOs.” The release says it will “meet through November 2012.” The timing and phrasing suggests that this isn’t the group’s expiration date and that the election will determine whether its work continues next year.

According to his bio, Ayoub was appointed to the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Advisory Committee on Voluntary Foreign Aid in April 2010, where he “provides advice, analysis and recommendations to USAID on the most pressing development issues in the world today.” He was reappointed to another two-year term in May.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ press release stated that IRW operations in Gaza and the West Bank were inseparable from that of Hamas:

“The IRW’s activities in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip are carried out by social welfare organizations controlled and staffed by Hamas operatives. The intensive activities of these associations are designed to further Hamas’ ideology among the Palestinian population,” it states.

What’s especially shocking about the influence of Ayoub is that IRUSA appears to be on the radar screen of top counter-terrorism officials. A budget analyst for the National Geospatial Agency may have lost his security clearance because of his wife’s employment with IRUSA. In April 2011, Patrick Poole, a national security and terrorism reporter, quoted a high-level Justice Department source as saying to him:

“Ten years ago we shut down the Holy Land Foundation. It was the right thing to do. Then the money started going to KindHearts. We shut them down too. Now the money is going through groups like Islamic Relief and Viva Palestina. Until we act decisively to cut off the financial pipeline to these terrorist groups by putting more of these people in prison, they are going to continue to raise money that will go into the hands of killers.”

It is alarming to think that the leader of a group with strong Islamist ties, including links to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, is advising the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development. The White House is even embracing him and promoting his group.

Answers are needed. How did Abed Ayoub and Islamic Relief USA get this high-level access and influence with this background? And what is IRUSA using its influence in the Obama Administration to accomplish?

Read it all and ask yourself, how many more are there?

  3. We need to reconstitute the Smith Act. Also, America needs to strengthen its laws pertaining to sedition. Every Mosques’ Imam preaches that our Constitution needs to be replaced with Sharia. This is treason if the Imam is a US Citizen. Its sedition at the very least. Let America not go the way of England, France, and other Western Nations who have been criminally infected with Islam. Stop the madness now before they come for your family!

    Well said. He has so many of these people in the white house. They all have to go……….while we still have a country left.

  5. Please ask President Obama to “STAND DOWN” Like and Share this Page Please https://www.facebook.com/BROBAMA2012

  6. Clinton’s Arab aide(lover) opened the door to all these appointments.
    Only Clinton’s clout bypasses security questions which would have thrown them all out

  7. He is only advising other muslims. There are no Christians left in there anyway. O took care of that.

  8. Ayoub has been advising the Obama Administration since at least April 2010. He and his organization have been publicly embraced by President Obama and Vice President Biden.

  9. This article supports that the USA is Babylon the great when it reveals that the Socialists in the Democratic Party are conspiring with the Muslim terrorists against Christians, Jews and the state of Israel when it reveals that they hired a Muslim terrorist that is supporting Hamas in Gaza as an adviser to the State Department and USAID, which is part of the fulfillment of Rev 18:2, which foretold that Babylon the great, or the USA would become a prison for ever hateful bird.
    Rev 18:2 and he cried out with a mighty voice, saying “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.
