One percent of the population, Muslims get a disproportionate amount of Obama’s time and your taxpayer money.
Just days ahead of his Mideast trip, President Barack Obama on Monday met with about 10 leaders of Arab American groups who encouraged him to deliver a message of hope to the Palestinian people even if he is unable to immediately deliver a peace plan with Israel.
There’s that deceptive media again (read Muslim Supremacism and Media Dissembling). No mention of Muslim groups, just Arab American groups.
Obama met with the officials Monday, four days after meeting with Jewish leaders as part of his preparation for the visit.
At least one of the groups demanded the following:
Unreported was the memo (read here) ADC hand delivered to the White House. In the memo ADC advocated for an end to the occupation and support for the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.
Did Obama meet with Muslim Brotherhood linked individuals and groups like CAIR, ISNA, MPAC? via President Obama Meets With Muslim Public Affairs Council Prior To Middle East Trip.
The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) has announced that the director of its Washington office met in an “intimate” meeting with President Obama to discuss issues pertaining to his upcoming trip to the Middle East, including Israel. According to the MPAC announcement:
March 11, 2013, MPAC along with other Muslim and Arab American leaders met with President Barack Obama to discuss issues that will pertain to his upcoming trip to the Middle East. Haris Tarin, the Director of MPAC’s Washington, DC, office, attended the intimate meeting with the President, as he prepares his agenda for this visit to Palestine, Jordan and Israel. The group discussed with the President and his senior advisers how his trip can be a catalyst for restarting the dialogue that will lead to the implementation of a comprehensive peace plan in the coming months. Ideas were also presented on how to engage the Palestinian people, especially the burgeoning youth population. Tarin and others shared with the President some of the important work being done by the Palestinian people in achieving their aspirations for an independent and viable Palestinian state. The group also made recommendations on key messages and policy issues that must be considered by the Americans, Israelis, Palestinians and other people in the region to ensure a just and sustainable peace process. =‘This meeting is an important first step by the President and his administration in ensuring that reliable voices of Palestinians and other concerned group and people in the region are heard,’ Tarin said. We are heartened that the President is beginning his second term with a trip to the region, and we hope that we can build a constituency for peace-making here in the United States and ensure that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not a zero-sum issue in our domestic discourse.”
Other media reports indicate that Presidential meeting also included representatives of the Arab American Institute, the American Task Force on Palestine, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and the American Federation of Ramallah Palestine.
Why the secrecy? There’s no mention of the meeting on the White House schedule or whom Obama is taking advice from, but the following day he was again meeting with Muslims in the White House:
The President holds a bilateral meeting with His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei Darussalam; the Vice President also attends

Just another normal week in White Housistan.
