Why Did Huma Abedin Bring Desecration of Koran in Michigan to Sec of State Clinton’s Attention?

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was understandably kept abreast of all manner of news from all over the world during her tenure as Secretary of State.

But buried amidst the thousands of emails recently released by the State Department is one news report of particular interest sent from top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Here is Abedin’s note:

This email begs the question: Why did Huma Abedin feel the need to bring the desecration of a Koran in East Lansing, MI to the attention of the Secretary of State?

Did Abedin feel that Clinton might be concerned about the news “inciting” attacks in America or abroad?

Might she have felt that such a story could be leveraged politically?

Was it just something Abedin as a Muslim found personally reprehensible, that she felt her confidant ought to be made aware of?

Whatever the reason that Huma Abedin felt the need to give a heads-up to Hillary Clinton on this particular story, this and the hundreds if not thousands of emails between them remind us that though the press may ignore it, a Muslim Brotherhood-tied aide has been closer to Mrs. Clinton than perhaps anyone else for many years, including critical ones at Foggy Bottom.


Note the Koran burning was reported by another Muslim Brotherhood entity, the terror-named Hamas front group CAIR and it took place in Lansing, Michigan – where the mayor celebrates the month of jihad – Ramadan – on 9/11.

Court Orders CAIR to Pay Legal Fees After Harassing Private Citizen Who Opposed Mosque

Harassing, terrorizing. Same difference in this case. via Federal Court Orders CAIR to Pay AFLC $9,000 in Legal Fees | American Freedom Law Center

Today (August 28, 2015), U.S. Magistrate Judge David Grand sanctioned the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and ordered it to pay $9,000 in legal fees to the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), after AFLC successfully “quashed” harassing and burdensome subpoenas issued by CAIR to Ms. Zaba Davis, a private citizen who received the subpoenas because she publicly expressed her opposition to the construction of an Islamic center in her neighborhood.

In 2012, the Muslim Community Association of Ann Arbor (MCA) requested that Pittsfield Township, Michigan, rezone a parcel of land to build an Islamic School and community center.  The Township denied the request, citing infrastructure and traffic concerns.  Nevertheless, CAIR, which bills itself as “America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization” but is widely known in government circles as a Muslim Brotherhood front group, filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Township on behalf of the MCA, alleging that township officials denied the MCA’s rezoning application out of discrimination against Muslims.

The MCA’s rezoning request was opposed by a group of Township residents who live in the neighborhood of the proposed development.  The residents expressed concerns about the traffic congestion that the new construction would cause in their neighborhood.  Pursuant to their rights protected by the First Amendment, these private citizens circulated and submitted to their elected Township officials a petition expressing their opposition to the rezoning and several of them spoke out at public hearings held by the Township to discuss the matter.

As a result of the citizens’ involvement, CAIR served harassing subpoenas on a number of these citizens, demanding that they produce private emails and other documents, and in some cases, appear for a deposition.  In one instance, Township resident Zaba Davis and her husband came home to find several papers jammed in the crack of the front door of their home.  The papers included subpoenas demanding the production of personal emails and other documents and a subpoena commanding Ms. Davis to appear at a deposition.

In response to CAIR’s abusive discovery requests, AFLC, which is representing seven of the targeted private citizens, filed a motion to “quash” and for a protective order against CAIR.  The court granted the motion, ruling that the subpoenas violated the First Amendment and caused undue burden.  According to the court’s ruling:

[CAIR] contends that its sole interest in deposing Davis stems from a genuine belief that she has what it believes to be relevant information, and not from any personal malice against her for her public opposition to the school.  This argument fails for a few reasons.  First, . . . the Court finds unpersuasive [CAIR’s] relevance argument.  Second, for the reasons noted in the preceding paragraphs, to the extent information possessed by Davis is relevant, that relevance is far outweighed by the chilling effect that allowing the subpoenas would have on speech, not only for Davis, but for all others who wish to be involved in public discourse on matters of public concern.

AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel Robert Muise commented:

“Discovery sanctions in federal court are rare.  They are typically reserved for the most egregious violations.  CAIR’s conduct in this case, not unlike other cases in which we have litigated against this Muslim Brotherhood organization, almost always meets or exceeds this threshold.  Yet, only rarely are CAIR and their minions sanctioned.  We applaud the court for its courage and fidelity to the rule of law.”

AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi added:

“CAIR claims to be a civil rights organization even as it uses federal subpoenas to terrorize innocent residents into submission.  CAIR was born from a jihadi terrorist conspiracy and it has done little to distance itself from those bona fides.  It is about time a federal court applied a measured yardstick to sanction CAIR’s abusive conduct in federal litigation.”

Washington: Tri-City leaders to meet with terror-linked Muslim group…on 9/11

Muslims across the U.S. are quietly using the attacks of their armed brethren on 9/11/2001 to spread Islam and sharia in the U.S. Fourteen years is a blink of an eye when it comes to establishing a worldwide caliphate.

via Tri-City area Muslims meet with local leaders | Local News | Tri-CityHerald.com.

A meeting aimed in part at helping Tri-City elected officials become better acquainted with the local Muslim community was planned Friday in West Richland.

The session also was meant to help Tri-City area Muslims become more engaged in government.

Muslims + government = sharia.

Similar meetings will be held in the Tri-Cities in the future, with the next one planned for September.

They’re part of a initiative by the state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, a civil liberties and advocacy organization.

Arsalan Bukhari, executive director of CAIR-WA, was in town this week for the session. The meetings “provide a mutual benefit,” he said.

Terror-listed and HAMAS-terrorist linked CAIR.

The West Richland session was at the Islamic Center of Tri-Cities. Benton County Prosecutor Andy Miller and a staffer from the office of U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., were scheduled to attend. The next meeting is Sept. 11 in Kennewick, with different leaders invited to participate.



In Michigan, the mayors of Lansing will be hosting a Ramadan party for Muslims on 9/11 – three months after Ramadan ended.

Scott Walker says Islamic terrorists harmful to “moderate” Muslims, terror-linked CAIR calls for apology

via Scott Walker says Islamic terrorists harmful to ‘handful of reasonable, moderate followers of Islam’ : Ct.

Gov. Scott Walker on Friday said radical Islamic terrorists are hurting the “handful of reasonable, moderate followers of Islam” who don’t share their beliefs.

The comments came in response to a question during a campaign visit in Derry, New Hampshire.

Speaking at a VFW post, Walker said he would work to strengthen the nation’s defense system, restoring cuts implemented by President Barack Obama’s administration.

Walker said a stronger military would help the U.S. fight radical terrorist groups like ISIS. He called for showing a “position of strength,” something he said the current administration isn’t doing.

One attendee replied, “Well, not with an administration that won’t use the words Islamic terrorists.”

“If you’re fighting a war, you’ve gotta identify who the enemy is loud and clear. We’ve said it repeatedly, it’s radical Islamic terrorism,” Walker said. “It is a war not against only America and Israel, it’s a war against Christians, it’s a war against Jews, it’s a war against even the handful of reasonable, moderate followers of Islam who don’t share the radical beliefs that these radical Islamic terrorists have.”

Do they not share the same beliefs or do they just not act on them?

The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim civil liberties organization, swiftly called for an apology.

“Your progressive voice” newspaper forgot to mention that CAIR has been named a terrorist organization by the UAE, linked to Muslim terrorists by the U.S. government, banned by the FBI, and had many of its leaders jailed or deported for terror crimes.

“These types of inaccurate statements reflect a lack of understanding of Islam and Muslims that is, frankly, not presidential,” said CAIR government affairs manager Robert McCaw. “If Mr. Walker believes only a ‘handful’ of Muslims are moderate or reasonable, then he is ignoring the very clear reality that violent extremists murder more Muslims than they do people of any other faith.”

Robert McCaw? Government affairs manager. CAIR should be banned in the U.S.

The Walker campaign responded by saying the majority of Muslims are hurt by radical Islamic terrorists.

“The Governor knows that the majority of ISIS’s victims are Muslims. Muslims who want to live in peace – the majority of Muslims – are the first target of radical Islamic terrorists,” said Walker spokeswoman AshLee Strong. “Under the Obama-Clinton foreign policy doctrine, we’ve been abandoning our traditional Muslim allies in the Middle East and allowing ISIS, al Qaeda, and Iran to fill the void.”


While Walker did identify the targets of jihad-waging Muslims, it’s not clear if he is ready to do anything different than Clinton, Bush or Obama. And this is a recipe for disaster and the end of America as we know it.

How does Walker identify “reasonable, moderate followers of Islam” versus unreasonable, immoderate/extreme followers of Islam.

All candidates should be on the record: Would you call for an immediate halt to immigration from majority Muslim nations? It’s a yes or no question.

If you haven’t voted in our presidential poll be sure to do so. To date, Scott Walker has less than 1% of the vote.

FBI warns of next big terror attack…against Muslims

…by Americans. via ‘Ridiculous’: FBI warns of next big terror attack.

Just three weeks after an ISIS-inspired attack on a Muhammad cartoonist event in Garland, Texas, the FBI began circulating an intelligence bulletin that alerts state, federal and local law enforcement about the likelihood of attacks against Muslims by “militia extremists.”

The bulletin, marked “sensitive” and not for distribution without FBI authorization, cites evidence gathered since 2013 that American militia groups are planning attacks on mosques, Islamic centers and possibly individual Muslims.

The document is dated May 28, 2015, and was leaked to Public Intelligence, an online information site committed to exposing government secrets and data. Public Intelligence posted the document on its site Aug. 18.

Named in the bulletin as news sites that provide information that supposedly fuels the militia groups were WND.com, Fox News, the Blaze, Western Journalism Center, Patriot Newswire and Pamela Geller’s blog, AtlasShrugs.com.

Militias fueled by ‘conspiracy theories’

These websites have reported “conspiracy theories” about Islamic terror training camps across the U.S., providing fodder for the militias that want to attack Muslims, the bulletin states. These private Islamic enclaves are operated by Jamaat al-Fuqra, which also goes by the name Muslims of America or MOA.

Interestingly, the FBI confirms in the report that nine MOA enclaves with approximately 1,500 “dedicated members” devoted to radical Pakistani cleric Sheikh Mubarik Ali Gilani do exist in the following U.S. cities: Hancock, N.Y. (headquarters); Coldwater, Michigan; Dover, Tennessee; Sweeney, Texas; Commerce and Odum, Georgia; York, South Carolina; and Red House and Meherrin, Virginia.

But the FBI states that “assertions MOA communities provide terrorist training are unfounded.”

FBI informants “with varying levels of access” report that “militia extremists” have been conducting surveillance of Islamic properties in Alaska, Arizona, Indiana, Montana, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Utah and Texas, the bulletin states.

The bulletin cites an unidentified source with “good access” who allegedly reported to the FBI in September 2014 that “militia extremists in Mississippi discussed kidnapping and beheading a Muslim and posting video of the attack to the Internet.” The FBI bulletin goes on to say that the Mississippi group “has since disbanded” and no longer exists.

Another FBI informant reported in early 2015 that the leader of a militia extremist group expressed “interest in training members for direct action against ISIS and associated ISIS locations,” the document states.

In the final example cited, the FBI says “militia extremists posted calls over social media to kill Muslims attending worship services and during a public event in 2013, according to a reliable source with direct access to the information.”

The FBI concludes that there are “salient perceptions within militia extremism that contribute toward an anti-Muslim bias.” The FBI says such “bias” against Islam is based on the following beliefs among the “extremists”:

  • “Islam represents a foreign threat, equivalent to those which emanate from illegal immigration or international terrorism.
  • “The President of the United States not only sympathizes with Islamic extremists but directs U.S. Government policy to align with their goals.”

FBI now captured by the left?

The document is significant because it demonstrates how the modern FBI has joined forces with the hard left, including groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, said Islam expert Robert Spencer.

“This is as ridiculous as it is disquieting,” said Spencer, author of the blog Jihad Watch for the David Horowitz Freedom Center and co-author of several books on Islam with Geller.

“Pamela Geller, Fox News, etc., do not incite or approve of or call for violence,” Spencer said. “This demonstrates that the FBI has become so thoroughly compromised that it has accepted the victimhood agenda of Islamic supremacist groups such as the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which labor assiduously to portray those who oppose jihad terror and expose its ideological and religious roots as the ‘right-wing extremist’ equivalent of Osama bin Laden and Anwar al-Awlaki.”

Spencer added that the “insidious goal of this libel is to stigmatize opposition to jihad terror, so that the jihad can advance unimpeded. That the FBI would be abetting the propagation of this libel is yet another new low for the Obama-era intelligence apparatus.”

‘The priorities are upside down’

Jamie Glazov, host of the Glazov Gang online media outlet that provides information and analysis of the Islamic threat to the West, was also miffed by the FBI bulletin.

“The priorities are upside-down, with all the jihadist violence taking place, right-wing militias are the threat and Muslims are the victims? Give me a break,” Glazov told WND in an email. “Where exactly has anything like this happened?”


Now that the report is out Jamie, we are overdue for a anti-Muslim hate crime perpetrated by…Muslims.

Islamist Influence in Hollywood

Islamists are Muslims. They want sharia. They defend it. They defend jihad. They are politicians and lobbyists for Islam. They pave the way for jihad and sharia.

via Islamist Influence in Hollywood | Human Events.

Americans are clearly alarmed about Islamic terrorists who are encouraging and spreading violence across the globe, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as relentlessly threatening violence to the United States. So readers might be surprised to learn that organizations which sympathize and associate with jihadists are yielded a major say over what the film industry says about Islam and Muslims.

Hollywood, for instance, regularly capitulates to The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on how to portray Muslims, even though many in CAIR’s leadership are sympathetic to Islamic terrorists. As Steve Pomerantz, the FBI’s former Chief of Counterterrorism, has bluntly stated: “CAIR, its leaders, and its activities effectively give aid to international terrorist groups.”

CAIR’s connection to the Holy Land Foundation is central to this assessment. On May 27, 2009, U.S. District Judge Jorge A. Solis sentenced the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) and five of its leaders on convictions of providing material support to Hamas, an Islamic terrorist group whose charter vows to obliterate the State of Israel through violence. CAIR was labeled an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the HLF trial, the largest terrorist financing trial in the history of the United States.

Additionally, several of CAIR’s former leaders are now in jail on terror-related convictions. Moreover, virtually all of CAIR’s leadership supports Hamas and Hezbollah, both of which are United States – designated terrorist organizations. Nevertheless, CAIR is actively instructing Hollywood on how to depict Islam and Muslims.

Nihad Awad, Founding Member of CAIR and current Executive Director of CAIR National, boasts that he has successfully negotiated with Hollywood to combat “negative stereotypes of Muslims.” In a 2010 speech, Awad made the inaccurate claim that one Hollywood company created in the prior three decades 800 films that presented Muslims from “an Israeli point of view.” In fact, no Hollywood company can be found to have created that many films of any type.

Here are some examples of CAIR’s successes in Hollywood: Continue reading

DC: Terror-linked Muslim Delegates Lobby Congress During First Muslim Capitol Day (video)

“This is just the beginning of the work, the actual work takes place when we meet and maintain relationships with members of Congress…” ~ Nihad Awad of the CAIR, named a terrorist group by UAE.

Previously, Awad has stated:

I am in support of the Hamas movement.”

“Address people according to their minds. When I speak with the American, I speak with someone who doesn’t know anything.”

280 Muslim Delegates Lobby Congress on Historic First National Muslim Advocacy Day

In the first-ever National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C., over 280 delegates gathered from more than 20 states to meet with elected officials and congressional staffers. The US Council of Muslim Organizations, a coalition of leading national and local American Muslim organizations, sponsored the historic event.


No member of Congress should be meeting with the terror-linked, terror-named, unindicted co-conspirator to the largest terror finance conviction in U.S. history, who have had many members arrested and deported for terror offenses.

The USCMO is just an umbrella group of Muslim Brotherhood-linked organizations led by the sharia and jihad-approving CAIR, as we noted in, Newly Formed Muslim (Brotherhood) Coalition Seeks Greater Clout in U.S. Elections.

UPDATE: Politicians and LEO may not do anything about terror groups like CAIR, but you can actually make an impact with this one. So far in their quest to be recognized as a “Great Nonprofit” the terror group CAIR has one star.
