Sec Defense nominee Hagel received funds from ‘Friends of Hamas’ group

Rampant infiltration from all corners of the U.S. government. via Secret Hagel Donor?: White House Spox Ducks Question on ‘Friends of Hamas’.

On Thursday, Senate sources told Breitbart News exclusively that they have been informed that one of the reasons that President Barack Obama’s nominee for Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, has not turned over requested documents on his sources of foreign funding is that one of the names listed is a group purportedly called “Friends of Hamas.”

Yesterday, 25 senators sent a letter to Hagel demanding information on his foreign funding. Hagel has refused all such requests, prompting the senators to state, “in the judgment of the undersigned, a Committee vote on your nomination should not occur unless and until you provide the requested information.”

Called for comment and reached via telephone, Associate Communications Director at the White House Eric Schultz identified himself, heard the question, was silent for several seconds, and then hung up the phone immediately without comment. Called back via the White House switchboard, Schultz’s phone rang through to his answering machine. Called on his cell phone, Schultz’s phone rang through to his answering machine.

Hamas, the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, is listed by the U.S. as a terrorist organization. For now. That could very likely change in the coming years, although Hamas’ objectives will never change.

More via Saad Hariri: ‘Friend’ of Hamas, Supporter of Hagel

While the White House refused to confirm or deny the report, there are certainly friends of Hamas among Hagel’s supporters, including former Lebanese prime minister Saad Hariri.

The Hariri family has supported the Atlantic Council, a think tank Hagel chairs, and provided the funding for the Atlantic Council’s Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East, which was launched in 2011 with Vice President Joe Biden in attendance.

In late December, Hariri sent a representative to a large celebration in Beirut of the 25th anniversary of Hamas. He has also maintained contact with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh in Gaza, even while abroad in Saudi Arabia.

Members of the Senate Armed Services Committee have expressed concern about Hagel’s funding from the Hariri family, among other foreign donors, according to a report Wednesday by Buzzfeed’s Zeke Miller. Miller’s source apparently did not specify why Hariri funding was of concern, though Saad Hariri’s alleged ties to the Syrian opposition and connections to Hamas could create conflicts of interest for Hagel at the Department of Defense.

Hagel’s failure to provide relevant documentation about his funding, as well as additional information about past speeches, provoked a stern letter from Republicans on Wednesday, led by committee member Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Committee chair Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) postponed a vote on Hagel, but said Thursday that he would move to schedule a vote “as soon as we’re ready to have a vote,” indicating his impatience with Republican opposition.

  1. if pertinent information is hidden; how do you think he will conduct his business? any association with muslim organizations by him or brennan should be outed. I’m wondering if both of them are closet muslims.

  2. Just another Muslim MOLE in the government leading Americans to the slaughter.

    Get Muslims and their sympathizers out of America!

  3. Brennan has admitted he became a Muslim while in Saudi Arabia…. check on YouTube for videos of this. If the republicans allow these two to be confirmed then you can rightly summise that this country is doomed.

    • Of course they will, look how easily they slithered around Benghazi, look at how easily Mme Clinton also ‘slithered’ around it when “testifying”. Not the same America as it was 50 yrs ago. They would be in prison by now.

  4. Amen, 1-2 Infidel,

    Be they on the Right or the Left.

    Muhammad set the precedent in the example provided in the Conquest of Mecca. He knew, thus so does his ummah, one “neutral” concerning him, as was one making friends with Muhammad, as good (except of course to be trusted with inside secrets) as one for him.

    Of course, we know, that true friendship with unbelievers is haram (forbidden) in Islam, thus with respect to such friendship, the Qur’an has this to say: “And whoever does that has no relation with Allah whatsoever.” 3: 28.

    (I am, however, quite certain, those words in the Qur’an, as are so many words, precepts and orders therein, just part of Allah and His Messenger, Muhammad, hacking it up, good old boy style. Thus those words and countless other therewith, only kidding words, filler, the words of jokers, comedians, and good old boys, hard at it.)

    Hence this amplification on that verse: “The believers should not take unbelievers as friends (and protectors) rather than believers. Anyone who does that (and befriends unbelievers) has nothing whatsoever to do with (the din of) Allah—unless it is because you are afraid of them, (unless it is dissimulation out of fear of them so that the befriending takes place with the tongue alone and not the heart. This was before Islam became mighty, when Islam had no power in the land.) Allah advises (and warns) you to beware of Him (and have fear of Him because He will become angry with you if you make friends with them).

    (Aisha Bewley’s Translation of Jalalu’ D-Din Muhammad Ibn Ahmad Al-Mahalli and his student, Jalalu’ D-Din as-Siyuti’s Tafsir Al-Jalalayn, Dar Al Taqwa Ltd. 2007.)

    Thus, the tacit understood in the above noted “friendship” is clearly feigned friendship–friendship to serve subterfuge in play, until Islam seizes supreme “power in the land.”

    Nevertheless, let’s not go there, for God’s sake, let’s be civil, peaceful, stupid. After all, if we have learned anything in the more than ten years in “this war,” it should be this: our part is to play the role of idiots, the blind, the dead-sensed, and the deaf. Thrill and not offend, annoy, nor disappoint our Muhammidian amigos. It is, recall, with their help we gain our safety and freedom from the ire, and all subsequent to it, of “the extremists.”

    Basic sunnah game plan: weaken, break apart, the resistant to Islam; work to win the hearts of the young as well as anyone else inclined to Islam. Some will embrace Islam, others will claim neutrality, still others, will simply be willing to becomes “friends of Muhammad”; with such a line up, bring Muslim influence to bear, penetrate, when and where possible. Soon, “Khaibar” capitulates.

    Its towering fortresses proving worthless against the advancing Muslims. Soon, its tell is this; “Khaibar … reduced to submission … disarmed.”

    You see, the Prophet, as is so with his peace-loving followers, he hated violence, thus as much as able sought to take his enemies “unawares.” Unable to fire off a shot. Waking to find themselves, as we are, surrounded, overtaken, before they even noticed an enemy force encamped with them and surrounded them.

    Thus, the occupation of Mecca by “Believers” preceded the conquest of Mecca by the same. Thus this, the harvest of the well worked occupation: “Mecca was transformed, and overnight practically the entire population was won over to Islam.”

    And the call to prayer heard far and wide.

    • nice post and welcome to this blog- have enjoyed having your input–
      please do not leave out the rest of that chant our bloodthirsty enemies still scream out at any chance :

      Khaybar Khaybar is Yahud, Jaysh Muhammad sawfa ya’ud [‘Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews, the army of Muhammad will return’].”[Khaibar is the name of last Jewish village defeated by Muhammad’s army and it marked the end of Jewish presence in Arabia in 628.]

      in reality JEWISH LANDS are being ‘occupied” by Muslims

      • Hey, isahiah62.

        Thank you.

        Indeed, much more I could have carried on with and added to the above, however, I had to yield to the demands of time.

        Nonetheless, as long as life, “CS,” and God allow me to, I will continue to add, as much as possible, more of the same–the cries, the watch words, the actions played out at the orders of or under the approval of the Arabian “Prophet.”

        Actions of course, which we know, often times resulted in the sands surrounding Muhammad and his followers swallowing up the blood of those who resisted the message and thus the din of “the last Prophet.”

        Examples, object lessons, there for our “benefit,” so that perhaps we will be god-fearing.

        Thanks again, for your post. I appreciate it.
