U.S. President Barack Obama hosted Tuesday an Iftar at the White House in celebration of the Holy Month of Ramadan.

During the Iftar gathering, which is the time when Muslims worldwide break their fast after sunset, Obama discussed Middle Eastern matters including the ongoing conflict between Israelis and Palestinians and the turmoil in Iraq.

The Iftar, which has become an annual tradition at the White House, gathered diplomats from the Arab and Muslim world.

From the White House Blog:

Last night, President Obama hosted his sixth Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan at the White House, an annual tradition started by First Lady Hillary Clinton when she hosted a Ramadan Eid celebration dinner in 1996.

Last night, guests were welcomed into the East Wing where a copy of the Quran owned by President Thomas Jefferson, one of the founding fathers of the United States, was on display from the Library of Congress. At sunset, guests gathered in the Grand Foyer to break their fast with a date following the traditional melodic Muslim call to prayer led by a local student from the University of Maryland. Then finally, after a 16-hour day of fasting since sunrise, guests gathered in the State Dining Room for a halal meal with the President.

Obama administration tracking Muslim candidates for military, Pentagon positions

via World Tribune. h/t Atlas Shrugs

The administration of President Barack Obama has been identifying Muslims in the military in an effort to encourage their presence.

Officials said the Defense Department has been keeping records and tracking Muslims. They said the administration sought to attract Muslims both to the military and to the Pentagon.

“Our nation and our entire military family remain stronger because of the service and sacrifice of people of all faiths, including the thousands of patriotic Muslim Americans who have served and still serve in this long period of war,” Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work said last week.

The U.S. military currently has 4,500 uniformed Muslims, the Pentagon said on July 3. It was not clear how the Pentagon identified the Muslims. The department has not given statistics on members of other religious faiths.

In 2009, a U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, shouting “God is great,” opened fire and killed 13 of his colleagues. Later, authorities acknowledged that Hasan, a psychiatrist, was linked to Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

Critics have accused the administration of promoting Islam as the preferential faith in the United States. Over the last year, a senior adviser to the Homeland Security Department, Mohamed Elibiary, issued a statement that said the U.S. Constitution was “Islamically compliant” and that a Muslim caliphate was “inevitable.”

“I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country,” Elibiary said in a Twitter post on June 30.

On July 3, Work attended the annual Pentagon ceremony of Iftar, or the evening dinner after a day-long fast that continues throughout the Muslim month of Ramadan. The Pentagon has been conducting the ceremony since 1998 in commemoration of Islam.

“Tonight is an opportunity for people of different faiths to come together in the spirit of respect and tolerance to share the richness of our beliefs and to enjoy the traditions of hospitality that are such an important part of the Muslim community,” Work said.

The Pentagon, which hired Saudi-sponsored groups to raise awareness, has reported the employment of 1,000 Muslims. Officials said they included
civilians and contractors for the Defense Department.

In his address, Work quoted Obama as saying that Ramadan reminded Americans of the principles of peace, justice and equality.

Negative. The principles of jihad, sharia and supremacy however…

The deputy secretary also urged those at the Iftar to remember their responsibility to the defense of the United States.

“Our country’s founders understood in a visceral way [that] the best way to honor the place of faith in the lives of all Americans was to fight for
justice and equality as well as liberty and freedom,” Work said. “That is exactly what the men and women both in and out of uniform who serve in the
Department of Defense do every single day. They are safeguarding the very ideals deemed so precious by our founding fathers.”

DC: Benghazi jihad suspect requests Koran and halal food

Sharia at U.S. taxpayer expense…for the next 30 years.

via Reporter’s Notebook: At the Benghazi suspect’s hearing | Fox News. h/t Atlas Shrugs

Benghazi suspect Ahmed Abu Khatallah entered a federal court in Washington, D.C. unshackled and wearing a green jumpsuit with one word – prisoner – in white block letters on the back.

Filling the seats watching him were members of the U.S. Attorney’s office, the Justice Department, journalists and eager law students. I was in the second row, about 25 feet away from the suspect.

The court session was brief, under 30 minutes, but not without a few technical hitches.

The first ten minutes were spent resolving problems with Khatallah’s headset, which allowed him to listen to an Arabic translation of the proceedings.

The 43-year old Libyan tried the headset on several times as the volume was adjusted. At one point, what appeared to a federal agent from the front row tried to assist with the system’s console, which resembles a DJ’s spinning table from a distance.

It was an ironic turn of events — 21 months to capture Khatallah and the proceedings then grinding to a brief halt over a plastic headset as the suspect would gently shake his head to indicate it was not working,

Khatallah was represented by a female public defender.

As the government laid out its case for his continued detention pending trial, saying he was a flight risk and accused of a violent crime, the Benghazi suspect leaned toward the judge’s bench.

His shoulders were hunched forward and he appeared focused and still as a statue.

When he was described by the prosecution as the leader of a Libyan militia, Ansar al-Sharia, his expression was hard to read. There was neither a flash of agreement nor a grimace suggesting his disapproval.

Khatallah’s public defender did not contest her client’s continued detention, but reserved the right to revisit the issue, complaining that the government had only provided access to limited evidence and drew broad conclusions about his alleged involvement without providing hard facts.

Given that Libya is unstable and awash with weapons, Khatallah’s court-appointed attorney appeared to dismiss the government’s claim that the Libyan was dangerous simply because he was carrying a gun when he was captured.

The government court filings seemed to have something for both sides in the detention debate.

They stated that Khatallah’s post-capture statements are part of the case against him, but also revealed that after the 2012 Benghazi attack, the 43- year-old suspect continued to “make efforts to target American personnel and property.”

Critics have complained the Obama administration made the criminal case against him the priority and that Khatallah was free for 21 months as the evidence was gathered.

However, the details of court findings suggest Khatallah was under government surveillance.

After half an hour, Magistrate Judge Deborah A. Robinson ruled Khatallah would remain in a U.S. detention center until his trial – an outcome never in doubt.

Khatallah had one personal request – a Koran, and Halal foods, which Muslims are allowed to eat under Islamic Shariah law. The judge said those issues were not for the court, but for the U.S. Marshals to handle.

 

Pentagon hosts FBI-banned, Hamas-linked CAIR at Ramadan iftar

Dhimmitude – the new diversity. via Deputy Secretary: Iftar Serves as Reminder of DoD Diversity

WASHINGTON, July 2, 2014 – In addition to honoring the Muslim faith during Ramadan, the Pentagon’s 16th annual iftar demonstrated the importance of diversity and equality within the Defense Department, Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Work said.

Iftar is the post-sunset breaking of the fast during the Islamic holy month.

Work, who spoke at an iftar held at the Pentagon yesterday, drew attention to the 4,500 Muslim Americans in uniform and the additional 1,000 civilians and contractors who work for the department.

“Ramadan reminds us of our shared responsibility to treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves and the basic principles that bind people of different faiths together by yearning for peace, justice and equality,” Work said, citing the words of President Barack Obama.

“Tonight is an opportunity for people of different faiths to come together in the spirit of respect and tolerance to share the richness of our beliefs and to enjoy the traditions of hospitality that are such an important part of the Muslim community,” the deputy secretary said.

He also recognized Gold Star Mother Shibra Khan and guest speaker Georgetown University chaplain Imam Yahya Hendi at the event.

“Our nation and our entire military family remain stronger because of the service and sacrifice of people of all faiths, including the thousands of patriotic Muslim Americans who have served and still serve in this long period of war,” Work said. “They continue a long and noble tradition of generations of Muslim Americans who have defended this country.”

The Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID) has announced that it has given its 2014 Muslim Democrat of the Year Award to the Nahdha Bloc in the Tunisian National Constituent Assembly. According to the announcement:

June 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID) has bestowed its 2014 Muslim Democrat of the Year Award to the Nahdha Bloc in the Tunisian National Constituent Assembly (NCA).

During its 15th Annual Conference, CSID president Dr. Radwan Masmoudi announced to the Nahdha Bloc leader, Mr. Sahbi Atig, that the prize was awarded ‘in recognition of your role in building democracy and preserving it in the face of hardship, for helping write a progressive, democratic, and consensual constitution, and for opening a window into a century of reason, freedom, human rights, and democracy in Tunisia and in the Arab World.’

Dr. William Lawrence, the conference chair added that ‘for more than a decade, CSID has recognized exceptional efforts made in advancing freedom, democracy, and human rights in the Muslim world. We believe that the Nahdha Bloc has succeeded with its partners in achieving a consensus that paved the way to ratifying a remarkable and enlightened constitution for all Tunisians.’

The ceremony was attended by many dignitaries including Mr. Aly Larayedh, former Prime Minister, Mr. Nejib Chebbi, leader of Joumhouri Party, and William Roebuck, U.S Deputy Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs.

Egyptian writer Amany Maged has described the relationship between the Tunisian Ennahda party and the Global Muslim Brotherhood. The Ennahda Party is headed by Rachid Ghannouchi (many spelling variations) who can best be described as an independent Islamist power center who is also strongly tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood and who has a long history of ties to Palestinian extremism and calls for terrorism. The GMBDW reported on a dinner held last February by the CSID to honor Mr. Ghannouchi that was attended by numerous US government officials.

The Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID) was founded in 1998 in what appears to have been a cooperative effort among the US Muslim Brotherhood, the US State Department and Georgetown University academic Dr. John Esposito who served during the 1990′s as a State Department “foreign affairs analyst” and who has at least a dozen past or present affiliations with global Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas organizations.

Muslim DHS Adviser’s Tweets Celebrated by ISIL Terrorists

via ISIL Celebrates DHS Adviser’s Anti-American Tweets on Return of Caliphate | Washington Free Beacon.

BY: Adam Kredo

Affiliates of the Iraqi terror group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), also known as ISIS, are praising and potentially recruiting extremists based on controversial tweets by a senior Department of Homeland Security (DHS) adviser who recently claimed that ISIL is proof that a Muslim “caliphate” is making an “inevitable” return.

The recent tweets by Mohamed Elibiary, a controversial figure who serves as a senior member of DHS’ Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC), were recently picked up in the Arabic press and widely disseminated on Twitter by multiple Islamic extremists.

Elibiary’s tweets—which disparaged Americans as showing “belligerence” after the 9/11 terror attacks and told of the “inevitable” return of the Muslim caliphate—drew widespread criticism online and prompted calls for his removal from DHS’ advisory committee.

Now the comments are being circulated and praised by Islamic jihadists affiliated with ISIL and Syrian extremists.

“Starting yesterday, Arabic reports of Elibiary’s comments went viral on social media and were especially disseminated by Islamic extremist Twitter accounts and those affiliated with [ISIL] and/or jihadi fighters in Syria, Iraq, and even Yemen” Oren Adaki, an Arabic language specialist at Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), told the Washington Free Beacon.

“Many of these tweets were accompanied by #Islamic_State_of_Iraq_and_Syria and #Remains hashtags, implying that the Elibiary’s comments validated that the U.S. recognizes and has come to terms with ISIL’s advance in Syria and Iraq,” Adaki said.

Elibiary’s made the comments late last week during a discussion about ISIL’s rise in Iraq.

“As I’ve said b4 inevitable that ‘Caliphate’ returns,” Elibiary tweeted in response to a question about ISIL, which is currently seeking to overthrow the Iraqi government and instate strict Sharia law in the country.

These controversial comments quickly ricocheted through the Muslim world after the Arabic website Rassd republished the comments in Arabic and touted the words of what it called a key “Obama adviser.”

That article was then disseminated and celebrated on Twitter by several accounts affiliated with ISIL.

“Obama Adviser: The caliphate will return, that is inevitable,” the Arabic tweet reads, according to a translation provided by FDD’s Adaki.

Terrorism analyst Patrick Poole said that Elibiary’s tweets are being used to recruit jihadists and that he should face repercussions for employing such rhetoric given his sensitive position at DHS.

“For years those of us complaining about Elibiary’s extremist statements have done so to no avail,” Poole said. “The Obama administration has repeatedly doubled-down on their support for Elibiary and recently promoted him to homeland security senior fellow.”

“I have personally briefed a roomful of members of Congress about the situation, and only a very few have been willing to publicly raise the issue while most have privately admitted the problem but sat back and done nothing,” Poole said. “The question for both the administration and Congress now is what are they going to do about the patently surreal position that Elibiary’s cheerleading for the ‘inevitable caliphate’ is being used fairly and in context by [ISIL] to recruit for jihad?”

Syrian Brought to US for “Democracy Training” Endorses Jihadis

via The Investigative Project on Terrorism.

A Syrian immigrant being trained in a State Department program for prospective leaders has repeatedly praised some of the most radical elements in his country’s brutal ongoing civil war.

Qutaiba Idlibi came to the United States as part of the “Leader for Democracy Fellowship,” funded by the Middle East Partner Initiative (MEPI). MEPI is a State Department program which “offers assistance, training, and support to groups and individuals striving to create positive change in the society.”

After completing the fellowship, Idlibi stayed in Washington, working as a program manager for a group called People Demand Change (PDC). According to its website, PDC formed last year to “to provide a better, more streamlined model for providing aid and support – on a long-term basis – to civil society actors” in the Middle East and North Africa.

But Idlibi’s social media activity indicates a much more radical viewpoint than PDC or the State Department claim to seek.

For example, he mourned the death of a senior al-Qaida operative who was killed in Syria in February. Abu Khaled Al Souri, considered a representative of al-Qaida head Ayman Al Zawahiri, died in a February suicide bombing. “They are going to call you a ‘terrorist.’ They can say whatever they want to say, The Levant and its people and its squares can testify about your Jihad and efforts,” Idibili wrote.

“Abu Khaled Al Souri was martyred. (see attachment Abu Khaled Al Souri)”

Idlibi has shared statements by another al-Qaida figure, Abu Maria Al Qahtani, the spokesman of Al Nusra front. Al Nusra pledged allegiance to al-Qaida last year. But that didn’t stop Idlibi from praising the group as “A liberation front” on March 25 and writing “Jabhat Al Nusra God praise you.”

Two weeks earlier, he prayed that “Allah grant our brothers in Al Nusra front the best award for their every day efforts in trying to liberate our hostages.”

Idlibi did not respond to a request for comment for this story. On social media, however, he also justified recruiting foreign fighters to join the Syrian jihad. “One way of obtaining American citizenship is via enrolling in the American army,” he wrote on March 29. “Thousands of people do that. Thousands of Jews from all around the world enroll in the Israeli army, but when Muslim fighters go to fight in another Muslim country to defend the land, the people, and the Religion, then all what we hear about is how dangerous is the risk of the foreign fighters.”

Idlibi also praised Ahmad Yassin, the former spiritual leader of Hamas.

Major Obama donor charged with bribing medical professionals, insurance fraud, involuntary manslaughter

via Kareem Ahmed charged with bribing medical professionals | Mail Online h/t Lisa

One of the major financial backers of President Barrack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign has been indicted in an alleged multi-million dollar insurance swindle.

Kareem Ahmed, the president and CEO of Ontario firm Landmark Medical Management, is accused of masterminding the scheme and is facing charged of conspiracy, insurance fraud and involuntary manslaughter, according to TPM.

Ahmed and 15 of his associates – most of them doctors and one pharmacist – were indicted by a California grand jury, TPM reported.

He is accused of developing topical cream formulas ‘based on the profitability of the ingredients’ and bribing doctors who treated workers’ compensation patients to prescribe them.

Kareem Ahmed gave $1 million to the Obama re-election campaign in 2012

Ahmed paid physicians a total of more than $25 million to dispense the compound creams, according to KPCC.

The alleged operation is said to have gone on from June 15, 2010, to December 31, 2012.

It also involved filing false insurance claims with different insurance companies.

The amounts individual doctors received between 2010 and 2013 ranged from $600,000 to more than $2.5 million

Among those Ahmed paid were Daniel Capen, M.D. (more than $2.5 million); Andrew Jarminski, M.D. (more than $1.9 million); pharmacist Michael Rudolph (more than $1 million); and Rahil Kahn, M.D. (more than $1 million), according to the indictment.

However mystery surrounds the circumstances of the involuntary manslaughter charge.

The incident alleged that on or about Feb. 3, 2012, Ahmed, Rudolph and Jarminski ‘did unlawfully and without malice kill Andrew G. (a minor) … in the commission of a lawful act which might produce death, in an unlawful manner and without due caution and circumspection’.

Ahmed gave $1 million to the pro-Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action in 2012.

Additionally, data maintained by The Center for Responsive Politics showed that Ahmed gave tens of thousands of additional dollars to Democrats in 2013.

The practices of his medical firm have been under suspicion for years in California.

 

Hillary Clinton: Hamas Terrorist Officials ‘Largely Technocrats’

Jihad Technology. Hamas Hillary.clintonsvisitarafat1

via Hillary: Hamas Officials ‘Largely Technocrats’.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told an audience in Toronto on Monday that she supported President Barack Obama’s decision to work with the Palestinian Authority’s new unity government, even though it includes the Hamas terror organization, because the new governing officials are “largely technocrats.”

 “I think it’s a holding position,” Clinton said, describing Obama’s stance. “And the reason it’s a holding position is that the makeup of this joint [Fatah-Hamas] enterprise are largely technocrats. They’re academics and they’re business people. They don’t represent sort of, what you might call hard-core Hamas leadership.”

U.S. law prevents funding the Palestinian Authority if it is affiliated with Hamas, but as The Blaze reported last week, the new unity government exploits loopholes in American law by appointing ministers who are nominally “apolitical.”

 The exercise is fictitious, however, as Hamas continues to carry out terror activities despite joining the unity government–including last week’s kidnappings, which were celebrated by both Palestinian factions.

As we’ve noted before, Hillary Clinton, like Obama, has supported Hamas before.

Benghazi attackers used State Dept. cell phones to call terrorist leaders, US spy agencies listened

via US spy agencies heard Benghazi attackers using State Dept. cell phones to call terrorist leaders | Fox News.

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.

The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry, as the administration claimed for several weeks after the attacks.

Eric Stahl, who recently retired as a major in the U.S. Air Force, served as commander and pilot of the C-17 aircraft that was used to transport the corpses of the four casualties from the Benghazi attacks – then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods – as well as the assault’s survivors from Tripoli to the safety of an American military base in Ramstein, Germany.

In an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Special Report,” Stahl said members of a CIA-trained Global Response Staff who raced to the scene of the attacks were “confused” by the administration’s repeated implication of the video as a trigger for the attacks, because “they knew during the attack…who was doing the attacking.” Asked how, Stahl told anchor Bret Baier: “Right after they left the consulate in Benghazi and went to the [CIA] safehouse, they were getting reports that cell phones, consulate cell phones, were being used to make calls to the attackers’ higher ups.”

A separate U.S. official, one with intimate details of the bloody events of that night, confirmed the major’s assertion. The second source, who requested anonymity to discuss classified data, told Fox News he had personally read the intelligence reports at the time that contained references to calls by terrorists – using State Department cell phones captured at the consulate during the battle – to their terrorist leaders. The second source also confirmed that the security teams on the ground received this intelligence in real time.

Major Stahl was never interviewed by the Accountability Review Board, the investigative panel convened, pursuant to statute, by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as the official body reviewing all the circumstances surrounding the attacks and their aftermath. Many lawmakers and independent experts have criticized the thoroughness of the ARB, which also never interviewed Clinton.

In his interview on “Special Report,” Stahl made still other disclosures that add to the vast body of literature on Benghazi – sure to grow in the months ahead, as a select House committee prepares for a comprehensive probe of the affair, complete with subpoena power. Stahl said that when he deposited the traumatized passengers at Ramstein, the first individual to question the CIA security officers was not an FBI officer but the senior State Department diplomat on the ground.

“They were taken away from the airplane,” Stahl said. “The U.S. ambassador to Germany [Philip D. Murphy] met us when we landed and he took them away because he wanted to debrief them that night.” Murphy stepped down as ambassador last year. A message left with Sky Blue FC, a private company in New Jersey with which Murphy is listed online as an executive officer, was not immediately returned.

Stahl also contended that given his crew’s alert status and location, they could have reached Benghazi in time to have played a role in rescuing the victims of the assault, and ferrying them to safety in Germany, had they been asked to do so. “We were on a 45-day deployment to Ramstein air base,” he told Fox News. “And we were there basically to pick up priority missions, last-minute missions that needed to be accomplished.”

“You would’ve thought that we would have had a little bit more of an alert posture on 9/11,” Stahl added. “A hurried-up timeline probably would take us [an] hour-and-a-half to get off the ground and three hours and fifteen minutes to get down there. So we could’ve gone down there and gotten them easily.”

 

Holder vows to fight ” domestic terrorists” (i.e, Americans) with new taskforce

Who will fight Holder? via U.S. reconstitutes group to fight homegrown extremists – Yahoo News.

(Reuters) – The United States is reviving a law enforcement group to investigate those it designates as domestic terrorists, the Department of Justice announced Tuesday.

Following hate-motivated shootings such as the one at a Jewish Community Center in Kansas City, Missouri in April, federal prosecutors have pressed the need to coordinate intelligence about such criminals on a national level, Justice Department officials said.

The Department of Justice will reconstitute a task force that was originally formed after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing but dissolved after the Sept. 11, 2001 hijacked plane attacks as law enforcement agencies focused on threats from militants abroad.

On Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement that the United States remains concerned about threats from Islamic extremists, but the group will focus on other motives for attacks within U.S. borders.

Events like the April 2013 bombing of the Boston Marathon, in which the attackers appeared to be influenced by extremists abroad, would not fall under the jurisdiction of the group, named the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee.

We must also concern ourselves with the continued danger we face from individuals within our own borders who may be motivated by a variety of other causes from anti-government animus to racial prejudice,” Holder said.

Never mind the 100+ Muslims who have gone to wage jihad with jihadist groups in Syria and elsewhere.

The American Civil Liberties Union said it plans to engage with the Justice Department to ensure the effort does not lead to racial profiling or other bias targeting of individuals who may be wrongfully suspected of having violent intentions, said Naureen Shah, legislative counsel for the ACLU.

“Attorney General Holder’s announcement that the new task force will focus on evidence of anti-government animus and racial intolerance raises concerns that it could be a sweeping mandate to monitor and collect controversial speech,” said Lee Rowland, a staff attorney at the ACLU.

The committee’s members will come from the FBI, the National Security Division of the Justice Department and the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee, which includes representatives of federal prosecutors.

If you were born in America, particularly if you are white and not a liberal, you are considered a domestic extremist by the Obama regime.

More via Obama admin ramps up targeting of political enemies

In reality, Holder’s task force will undoubtedly focus on the Obama administration’s political enemies, mainly returning military veterans, conservatives and those who identify with the Tea Party. Such groups have been increasingly linked to terrorism by multiple federal agencies.

Just last month, a military whistleblower revealed documents to Infowars that showed how a military training center in North Carolina, also used to train police and the DHS, was updated to include a Baptist church and farmhouses. Once modeled after foreign cities, training centers, such as the U.S. Army’s new 300-acre “fake city” in Virginia, are now being modeled after U.S. towns and cities instead.

Last October, Army troops at Mississippi’s Camp Shelby alerted media after a new training course labeled the American Family Association, a mainstream Christian ministry, as a domestic hate group similar to the Ku Klux Klan. A seperate briefing told officers to keep an eye on troops who supported such groups, insinuating that they were a domestic terror threat.

That same month, soldiers at Fort Hood were told that Christians, Tea Party supporters and anti-abortion activists were a major terror threat as well. Soldiers were told that support for such groups could result in disciplinary action under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

A Department of Defense training manual obtained by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch in August 2013 listed supporters of “individual liberties” as likely “extremists.” The manual also warned military personnel to avoid “active participation” in such groups, even banning them from “publicly demonstrating,” “rallying” and “fundraising.”

A 2012 report from the Small Wars Journal featured in Forbes even went as far as explaining “how the U.S. Military would crush a Tea Party rebellion.”

A Department of Homeland Security funded study uncovered in 2012 characterized Americans “suspicious of centralized federal authority” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists. The study also links Americans who believe their “way of life” is under attack to terrorism as well.

In line with President Obama’s DoD directive, a leaked US Army Military Police training manual from 2012 also outlined how the military would be used against U.S. citizens during civil unrest. The manual even detailed how Americans would be “re-educated” under U.S. Army FM 3-19.40 Internment/Resettlement Operations to support all U.S. policies.

Obama Smiles Immediately Upon Hearing Bergdahl’s Dad Declare Muslim Victory Call (video)

Instincts can’t be taught. via Father Of Soldier Who Obama Released, Declares Muslim Victory Call, And Obama Smiles As Soon As He Hears The War Cry Of Allah | Walid ShoebatWalid .

While the Obama administration is proudly touting how it was able to free an American soldier who was captured by the Taliban, what no one picked is the fact that Obama SMILED as soon as he heard the most famous war cry of Islam, “bismillah al-rahman al-rahim,” Arabic for “in the name of Allah the most gracious, the most merciful.”

Watch Obama smile as soon as Bergdahl gives the most famous Muslim expression, the “Bismillah” or the “Basmallah”:

The “basmallah” is the Islamic expression for victory and only indicates that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s father is a Muslim.

Think that the man is acting as “Muslim” for a stealth operation to rescue his son who is already in good hands in Germany? And what is with the long beard and trimmed mustache?

No this is not a bum, biker, or a Santa Clause fan. When one gives the basmallah, trims his mustache and elongates his beard, its the first sign of a convert to Islam…

Read it all at Shoebat.

Of course, the Taliban ‘was thrilled’ when deserter Sgt Bergdahl’s father thanked ‘Allah the merciful’ in his White House press conference.

An alternative theory questions if Sgt. Bergdahl, An Intelligence Asset was Endangered By Obama’s CIA Blunder?

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was a five-year captive of the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in Afghanistan, may have been an intelligence operative whose cover was blown after the White House outed the CIA’s top intelligence official in the Islamic country by mistake.

…it’s puzzling that Robert Bergdahl, Bergdahl’s father and an Idaho resident, can speak Pashto, one of the official languages of Afghanistan, considering that the State Dept.’s Foreign Service Institute considers Pashto one of the most difficult languages for an English-speaker to learn, especially without immersion in a native environment.

Both the FSI and the Pentagon’s Defense Language Institute are likely the two best sources for Pashto course material for native English speakers.

…it’s not entirely far-fetched to suggest that his statements and mannerisms are intended to give credibility to his son’s possible cover, and combined with the extreme political risk that Obama took to ensure the exchange…

 Something else not far-fetched:

And it even gets worse, it also turns out that he lobbied for a group with strong connections to Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S.

This constitutes a major problem.

Let’s address the elephant in the room. When it comes to Benghazi, the attackers all resided under the Muslim Brotherhood umbrella.

Muslim Advocates
Kiko, appointed by Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, has been a lobbyist for Smith-Free Group since 2013. One of Smith-Lee’s clients is the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, a consortium of racial and liberal organizations that includes the highly suspect Muslim Advocates (MA). There also appears to be a connection to Wisconsin politicians. The head of MA used to work for U.S. Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) and Kiko for Rep. James Sensenbrenner as Deputy Chief of Staff from 2001 – 2007. Sensenbrenner is credited with authoring the Patriot Act.

MA’s President and Executive Director Farhana Khera worked directly for Feingold for six years and was Counsel to the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. Ironically, a primary focus of Khera has been to water down the Patriot Act to protect Muslims. The degree to which she was successful can be seen in both how politically correct the law is as well as Feingold being the only U.S. Senator to vote against the law.

Khera represented the Muslim Students Association (MSA) in the U.S. and Canada in a suit filed against the City of New York over the surveillance of the Muslim community. MSA is a known Muslim Brotherhood front group and Khera is clearly a pro-Muslim activist who has argued that sting operations lead to “anti-Muslim sentiment”.

In 2010, Khera spoke at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention. In her speech, Khera tipped off Muslim leaders about law enforcement surveillance techniques. ISNA is also a Muslim Brotherhood front.

Perhaps one of Khera’s most prized accomplishments was a letter she received from then-Deputy National Security Adviser John Brennan, who is currently the Director of the CIA. Brennan’s letter was in response to a letter sent by Khera and 57 Muslim organizations requesting that training materials offensive to Muslims be purged from counter-terrorism manuals. Brennan expressed agreement with Khera in his response.

When it comes to other Muslim Advocates members advocating for terrorist organizations, at a 2007 Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) convention, Muslim Advocates counsel Akil Vohra vouched for the Holy Land Foundation, insisting that it was not connected to terrorism. One year later, the HLF was found guilty on all charges related to terrorism.

**UPDATE on May 27, 2014 at 8:49am ET**
To provide further clarity… As a lobbyist for Smith-Free Group, Kiko registered to represent the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR), which includes Muslim Advocates. As such, he registered to represent MA. The LCCR is wrought with far left-wing groups (mentioned above). Muslim Advocates is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

Read it all and see these previous Creeping Sharia posts on Ferhana whose group demanded the FBI release rules for monitoring Islamic terrorists, and taught Muslims how to fulfill Islamic charitable funding ‘without drawing the attention of the FBI’, and more tellingly, asked the corrupt Holder DOJ to start enforcing sharia blasphemy laws against Americans.
