Obama’s Special License to U.S. Muslim Group to Fund Syrian “Rebels” Causes Concern

Unfortunately not a lot of concern and no one in elected office or elsewhere has the courage to challenge Obama on it (or anything else of substance – voter fraud, Benghazi, unemployment, the Fed, etc., etc.).

via Patrick Poole doing what no other investigative journalist will: Syrian Support Group’s Ties to Muslim Brotherhood Cause Some Terror Authorities to Question Special License From Obama Administration h/t Money Jihad

In July, the Obama State Department approved an extraordinary license for a newly formed U.S.-based organization, the Syrian Support Group, to raise money for Syrian rebels – overriding the administration’s own sanctions and Obama’s Executive Order against such activity.

To some counterterrorism and terror finance authorities in Washington D.C., this extremely rare privilege raises considerable concerns.

This is especially true because two related figures with the organization, Louay Safi and Mazen Asbahi, have previously been tied to terror fundraising efforts by Islamic organizations identified by the U.S. government in federal court as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood.

One U.S. Treasury official specializing in terror finance said:

This license sets a dangerous precedent because it gives complete and perfect cover to virtually all of their activities. They can honestly say, “I can’t be fundraising for terror because I have a license from the State Department.” But we have absolutely no idea where that money is going once it leaves the United States. And as the Supreme Court recognized in a court case a few years ago, money raised for terrorist groups is fungible.

That the Obama administration has turned to people and groups tied to the Muslim Brotherhood to arm the Syrian rebels attempting to overthrow Assad is problematic on its face. But other questions are also raised about the State Department giving the Syrian Support Group a carte blanche to raise funds without any substantive oversight of where those monies are going. Especially when at least two of the individuals involved have already been tied to terror finance support.

One concrete example of that problem was noted by the New York Times in August when it observed that the Syrian Support Group had failed to file its monthly reports with the State Department’s OFAC:

The group has not disclosed its fund-raising efforts so far, though its license requires it to report each month to the State Department how much it raises and sends. If the Internal Revenue Service approves the group’s status as a charity, donations to help Syria’s rebels could soon be tax-deductible.

Other critics have complained that the issuing of the license very well could violate international laws and treaties. International law expert Francis A. Boyle at the University of Illinois has said the Syrian Support group’s license violates, “the United Nations Charter article 2(4) prohibition on the threat and use of force in international relations and the basic principles of customary international law prohibiting the interference into the domestic affairs of another state.”

Boyle noted further the hypocrisy of some U.S. government officials, such as Sen. John Kerry (D, Mass.) who supported the issuance of the license but previously claimed that similar support for the Nicaraguan Contras during the 1980s was illegal.

Another layer of hypocrisy is revealed when it is considered that the State Department issued the license to an organization incorporated by Mazen Asbahi, whose ties to the Muslim Brotherhood had been reported several years ago, at the same time that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R, Minn.) and four of her congressional colleagues were being pilloried for raising the concerns of possible Muslim Brotherhood influence in the Obama administration.

Much more detail in the full piece.

As we’ve noted numerous times – this group [US Muslims raising money and covertly aiding “rebels” in Syria and Obama allowing U.S. Syrian group to arm rebels, incl al Qaeda] and the not-so-covert Obama-led Syrian war align the U.S. on the same side as multiple anti-American Muslim terrorist groups – funding and arming them. While prosecuting low level Muslims who do the same in the land of hypocrisy.

  1. Stupid does as stupid is.

  2. As I commented on a different “post”…Am I the ONLY one that realizes this impostor “Obozo” NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED! NOW!

    This type of idiocy is so “BLATANT” and “IN-YOUR-FACE!”…and ALL we do is “roll-over” and accept it as “business-as-usual?”

    PLEASE…How do “WE, the People…” START the IMPEACHMENT process and keep the ball rolling? I will happily be the first to sign it!

    • There are already impeachement processes going on. If I remember right, it’s some pretty high level people trying it, too. Google it, I dont think it’s got very far but people have been trying for a few years.

    • I’ve been saying: ‘Impeach him’, from the moment he was voted in; I’ve also said from before he was voted in, the man is an imposter–a narcissistic Kenyan born muslim. And I’ll say again, America should be in an uproar over the fact obama is giving billions of taxpayer dollars to the ENEMY. That alone should get him impeached, but it isn’t happening, why not? Do Americans really want to see their country ruined, financially and racially?

  3. I am so tired of sitting here writing letters, registering people to vote, attending various anti-sharia events and reading books about Islam. Feel like a sitting duck. There aren’t even anymore good teaparty protests to attend.

    When I feel like that I remind myself God is in control. Maranotha!

  4. The Islamic Ideology on American soil goes against our Constitution.

    Religious places of worship are designated just that.

    When it comes to Islam, that is in direct violation to our Constitution Article V1 to overthrow our Constitution.

    Each Mosque is in direct violation in spreading Jihad with written material and through oral presentation etc….

    Mosque are the first step to end Islam in America, deportation of Imam’s is next then we weed out all Muslim Professors, Muslim Military, Police, FBI, CIA etc.

    As father’s, do you want for our daughters to be at the pleasure of muslim men under the Shariah where they if Christian must submit to those muslim men even in your presence, should you protest you and your family will be murdered by those muslim neighbors, this without laws to protect Christians or any other Religious group……

    • Unfortunately, dannyboy88, everything you just wrote is “TRUE!”

      • First order of business is never discuss this issue with a Muslim, they will deceive at every level, instruct your representatives to become aware of our Constitution Article V1 paragraph 2.

        Banning Mosque on American soil is our goal….After that be prepared to be bombarded with threats from the Muslim world wide with killing all infidels on their soil, keep in mind that all those soils muslims now occupy were mostly historically Christian countries.

        Our ultimate goal is to ban mosque in Western Civilized Countries….Strength through Power but it must be done…..Now, are there any American leaders willing to go out into areas like dearborn michigan, parts of Minnesota, Tennessee, Maryland, North Dakota, on and on where Muslim tribes have immigrated on a fast track to the U.S with visa’s provided by Keith Ellison and other Muslim Brotherhood elected U.S Officials either in the White House (BHO) or State leaders like Chris Christi etc……….

    • Each Mosque is in direct violation in spreading Jihad with written material and through oral presentation etc

      YES!! http://tomohalloran.com/2012/05/04/correlations-between-sharia-adherence-and-violent-dogma-in-u-s-mosques/

      A random survey of 100 representative mosques in the U.S. was conducted to measure the correlation between Sharia adherence and dogma calling for violence against non-believers. Of the 100 mosques surveyed, 51% had texts on site rated as severely advocating violence; 30% had texts rated as moderately advocating violence; and 19% had no violent texts at all. Mosques that presented as Sharia adherent were more likely to feature violence-positive texts on site than were their non-Sharia-adherent counterparts. In 84.5% of the mosques, the imam recommended studying violence-positive texts. The leadership at Sharia-adherent mosques was more likely to recommend that a worshiper study violence-positive texts than leadership at non-Sharia-adherent mosques. Fifty-eight percent of the mosques invited guest imams known to promote violent jihad. The leadership of mosques that featured violence-positive literature was more likely to invite guest imams who were known to promote violent jihad than was the leadership of mosques that did not feature violence-positive literature on mosque premises.

      • So…exactly why in the H**l do “WE, the People…” allow these “Mosque’s” to exist? The American people “shout foul” for the littlest “thing!” Here, we have an entire cult promoting “in-your-face” violence and “death-to-America” without even a “whimper” from the public, media, OR the government!!!

        Is it “just” the people on this forum that “recognizes” what is happening?

  5. F**k every so called politican, rabbi, preacher and every do-nothing American that is letting Islam conquer the U.S. without a fight and very few protests. We deserve everything we are getting. One day in your lifetime you WILL see the flag of Islam flying over the White House and Congress!!!

    • What do you suggests we do Path?

      • There needs to be a popular uprising of the people, It could be called The American Spring..protesting corruption, voter fraud, islamization, Constitution violations, demand impeachment for treason, ” We, The People” need to get angry, very very angry, and to march on Washington’ thats the only language fat lazy politicians understand and respect.

        • The American people should be very angry! I am! We need to start protesting! How do we RALLY our people up? Why are we so blind or afraid to stick up for our rights? Maybe start a facebook page or hit the media with it.

    • The flag may not be flying yet, but as you perhaps know, the occupant is one.

  6. I would suggest supporting Dave Gaubautz, he has infiltrated Mosque and wrote the book Muslim Mafia, he is looking for good people….no muslims need apply or try to deceive, your looking for major harm headed directly at you if you do…….
