Exclusive: Obama’s Favorite Islamist

Alex Alexiev

As the Democrat Convention’s carefully-scripted coronation of perhaps the least qualified major party presidential candidate in recent American history builds up to its climax, few have noticed that the convention’s most pregnant political message may have already been delivered before it officially started. It came in the form of a decision by Obama’s campaign to feature the president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Ms. Ingrid Mattson, at an “Interfaith Gathering” of Leftist religious luminaries the day before the convention opened.
In doing that, Obama and the Democrat leadership rather demonstratively bestowed their seal of approval on the largest and most important front organization of the American Muslim Brotherhood, a conspiratorial Islamist revolutionary movement dedicated, in their own words, to “a grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house by their hands.” The implications of this political legitimization of a group dedicated to the destruction of our constitutional order are so profoundly disturbing that some background on what exactly ISNA and the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) are is in order.

The Ikhwan beachhead in America was first established by a Saudi-funded group of Muslim Brothers in 1963 at the University of Illinois that became known as the Muslim Students Association of the U.S. and Canada (MSA). This was only a year after the founding in Saudi Arabia of the main instrument for export of the violent Wahhabi/Salafi creed, the Muslim World League (MWL). The MWL, like other similar organizations that followed, were the fruit of the symbiotic nexus between Ikhwan organizational talent and Saudi financial muscle, a key synergy that is the single most important determinant of the vast inroads radical Islamism has made in the West since then.

Acting according to the MB’s principle of a unitary Islamic movement operating through many fronts, the MSA promptly spawned numerous Islamist professional, educational and publishing spinoffs, before founding the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) in 1973, an ingenious Saudi-funded vehicle for control of American Islam through interest-free financing and holding the title of many Muslim institutions. Finally, in 1981, the Brotherhood and its Wahhabi patrons felt the need to set up yet another instrument of control of the proliferating American Islamist networks by incorporating ISNA in Indiana as an umbrella organization of these networks. In the process, numerous front organizations that preceded ISNA by many years, including the MSA itself and NAIT, became ISNA constituent organizations.

What never changed was the unremitting hostility of the organization to fundamental American values like democracy, separation of church and state and human rights and its dedication to the ultimate objective of establishing a world-wide Islamic rule under barbaric shariah law. Under the guidance of well-known Islamist zealots like Muzamil Siddiqui, Jamal Badawi, Abdalla Idris Ali, Iqbal Unus, Ihsan Bagby and many others, ISNA has through the years aided and abetted all manner of extremist and terrorist causes, while mouthing disingenuous calls for interfaith dialog. While it has been able to fool numerous politically correct useful idiots, ISNA has been less successful with U.S. law enforcement authorities who listed it (and its affiliate NAIT) as an unindicted co-conspirator in a recent terrorism funding case. Moreover, attempts to have its name expunged from that list were tersely rejected by the U.S. government citing numerous evidentiary exhibits establishing ISNA’s “intimate relationship” with the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist organizations.

ISNA is intimately involved in yet another major Islamist effort to undermine American society that has so far escaped public scrutiny. Through its affiliate NAIT, it owns and runs the IMAN shariah finance mutual fund which is part of the global financial Jihad effort aiming to legitimize a medieval doctrine that mandates violent jihad against non-Muslims and the killing of adulterers and homosexuals. Interestingly, the IMAN fund was known as the Dow Jones Islamic Fund until last March when it was revealed that the chairman of its shariah advisory board, Mufti Taqi Usmani, had long called for violence against infidels and sanctioned suicide terrorism. No less puzzling is the fact that NAIT, which owns most shares of the for-profit multi-million dollar mutual fund and on whose board Ingrid Mattson sits, does not file tax returns since it ostensibly makes less than $25,000 per year.
Perhaps the best evidence of what ISNA really stands for is provided by its own poll of the attitudes of its membership conducted in 2006. By nearly a 3 to 1 margin ISNA members believed that the U.S. government had advance knowledge of the September 11, 2001 attacks and allowed them to happen and a majority did not believe that the terrorists responsible for the 9/11 attacks and the July 7, 2005 bombings in London were Muslim.

Despite such overwhelming evidence of ISNA’s subversive nature, many are willing to give it the benefit of doubt. This is at least partly due to the fact that Ingrid Mattson is the first woman head of a major Islamic organization and is especially skillful in beating the bogus interfaith dialog drums. For the Obama campaign and more than a few others, this has by itself provided the needed proof that ISNA is a picture of moderation.
Indeed, how can all the lurid tales of Islamist misogyny, gay-bashing and hate-spewing against Christians and Jews be true when ISNA now has a leader that is seemingly an emancipated and enlightened woman dedicated to multiculturalism and understanding? A fair question, it seems, until one starts digging behind the headlines. It doesn’t take long to discover that far from being a new emancipated leader, Ms. Mattson is little more than a useful prop serving the Islamist agenda. Shortly after she was elected ISNA president in August 2006, the organization’s secretary –general Sayyid Syeed announced that this does not change the prohibition against women leading mixed-gender prayer and that Mattson will only be allowed to lead “ritual worship for women.” Mattson herself promptly opined that Muslim women are quite content with their segregated prayer space in the mosque.

Nor has she raised even the slightest objection to numerous misogynist statements by her fellow-ISNA executives and Islamist ideologues, Muzammil Siddiqui and Jamal Badawi, who have openly supported shariah restrictions on women traveling by themselves, socialization between men and women, or making friends with non-Muslims and endorsed polygamy and the husband’s right to beat his wife. Or, for that matter, their implicit endorsement of the death penalty for homosexuality. Not to mention ISNA’s vituperative anti-Semitism, rejection of basic American norms such as the separation of church and state and its support for the imposition of shariah law in Muslim communities in the West.

It would be interesting to find out whether key democratic constituencies such as feminists and gay and lesbian groups are aware of the real agenda of this newly anointed partner of the Obama coalition for change. Just as it would be for rank and file Americans to learn that as far as ISNA’s leadership is concerned American Muslims “should not melt in any pot except the Muslim Brotherhood pot.”

In the interest of fairness, the Obama campaign is not the only one to buy uncritically ISNA’s deceitful protestations. The Bush Administration, which has had seven years to figure it out, is even guiltier in failing to understand the deeply subversive nature of the Muslim Brotherhood networks and has often acted as a willing dupe to the Islamists. The number two man at the Pentagon, Gordon England, for instance, followed the advice of a likely Islamist plant in his office - who had lied about his background - in terminating Stephen Coughlin, one of the few genuine experts in the U.S. government on shariah law. Not surprisingly, Mr. England had earlier legitimized through his presence an ISNA convention which teemed with radical Islamist speakers and messages, making himself a useful idiot par excellence in the process.
Not to be overdone, the Administration’s former public diplomacy czar, Karen Hughes, whose impeccable credentials as a close personal friend of President Bush were only exceeded by her impeccable cluelessness about radical Islam, proudly declared ISNA members to be her frontline troops in public diplomacy.

The documented failure of the outgoing administration to come to terms with the existence of a well-organized Islamist fifth column in America does not make the democrats’ new infatuation with a key part of this fifth column any less serious. Especially because, as the party has veered sharply to the left, parts of it have increasingly embraced radical Islam as a new ally. These have ranged from the ACLU, which has openly allied itself with organizations like ISNA and CAIR, to the Greens who have lately been debating whether to engage radical Islam in a joint struggle to destroy capitalism.

These feelings are fully reciprocated on the other side as the Islamists increasingly see the Left as a potential ally in its quest to undermine Western civilization and replace it with shariah rule.
Following the Democrat mid-term election victories in 2006, the Muslim Brotherhood website ikhwanweb argued that the Democrat victory will work in favor of Muslims and the Muslim Brotherhood inside and outside the U.S. and expressed the hope that the democrats will begin dealing directly with “moderate Islamists.”

The Democrat Convention’s legitimization of Ingrid Mattson and ISNA would seem to justify such hopes further. One can only hope that the majority of patriotic Democrat voters would soon start asking questions about Obama’s new Islamist partners.

"Barack Hussein Obama's father was Muslim and therefore, according to Islamic law, so is the candidate.

Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes
by Daniel Pipes
August 25, 2008

Send Comment RSS Share:

How do Muslims see Barack Hussein Obama? They have three choices: either as he presents himself – someone who has "never been a Muslim" and has "always been a Christian"; or as a fellow Muslim; or as an apostate from Islam.

Reports suggests that while Americans generally view the Democratic candidate having had no religion before converting at Reverend Jeremiah Wrights's hands at age 27, Muslims the world over rarely see him as Christian but usually as either Muslim or ex-Muslim.

Lee Smith of the Hudson Institute explains why: "Barack Obama's father was Muslim and therefore, according to Islamic law, so is the candidate. In spite of the Quranic verses explaining that there is no compulsion in religion, a Muslim child takes the religion of his or her father. … for Muslims around the world, non-American Muslims at any rate, they can only ever see Barack Hussein Obama as a Muslim." In addition, his school record from Indonesia lists him as a Muslim

Thus, an Egyptian newspaper, Al-Masri al-Youm, refers to his "Muslim origins." Libyan ruler Mu‘ammar al-Qaddafi referred to Obama as "a Muslim" and a person with an "African and Islamic identity." One Al-Jazeera analysis calls him a "non-Christian man," a second refers to his "Muslim Kenyan" father, and a third, by Naseem Jamali, notes that "Obama may not want to be counted as a Muslim but Muslims are eager to count him as one of their own."
A conversation in Beirut, quoted in the Christian Science Monitor, captures the puzzlement. "He has to be good for Arabs because he is a Muslim," observed a grocer. "He's not a Muslim, he's a Christian," replied a customer. Retorted the grocer: "He can't be a Christian. His middle name is Hussein." Arabic discussions of Obama sometimes mention his middle name as a code, with no further comment needed.

"The symbolism of a major American presidential candidate with the middle name of Hussein, who went to elementary school in Indonesia," reports Tamara Cofman Wittes of the Brookings Institution from a U.S.-Muslim conference in Qatar, "that certainly speaks to Muslims abroad." Thomas L. Friedman of the New York Times found that Egyptians "don't really understand Obama's family tree, but what they do know is that if America — despite being attacked by Muslim militants on 9/11 — were to elect as its president some guy with the middle name ‘Hussein,' it would mark a sea change in America-Muslim world relations."

Some American Muslim leaders also perceive Obama as Muslim. The president of the Islamic Society of North America, Sayyid M. Syeed, told Muslims at a conference in Houston that whether Obama wins or loses, his candidacy will reinforce that Muslim children can "become the presidents of this country." The Nation of Islam's Louis Farrakhan called Obama "the hope of the entire world" and compared him to his religion's founder, Fard Muhammad.

But this excitement also has a dark side – suspicions that Obama is a traitor to his birth religion, an apostate (murtadd) from Islam. Al-Qaeda has prominently featured Obama's stating "I am not a Muslim" and one analyst, Shireen K. Burki of the University of Mary Washington, sees Obama as "bin Laden's dream candidate." Should he become U.S. commander in chief, she believes, Al-Qaeda would likely "exploit his background to argue that an apostate is leading the global war on terror … to galvanize sympathizers into action."

Mainstream Muslims tend to tiptoe around this topic. An Egyptian supporter of Obama, Yasser Khalil, reports that many Muslims react "with bewilderment and curiosity" when Obama is described as a Muslim apostate; Josie Delap and Robert Lane Greene of the Economist even claim that the Obama-as-apostate theme "has been notably absent" among Arabic-language columnists and editorialists.

That latter claim is inaccurate, for the topic is indeed discussed. At least one Arabic-language newspaper published Burki's article. Kuwait's Al-Watan referred to Obama as "a born Muslim, an apostate, a convert to Christianity." Writing in the Arab Times, Syrian liberal Nidal Na‘isa repeatedly called Obama an "apostate Muslim."

In sum, Muslims puzzle over Obama's present religious status. They resist his self-identification as a Christian while they assume a baby born to a Muslim father and named "Hussein" began life a Muslim. Should Obama become president, differences in Muslim and American views of religious affiliation will create problems.

Islamic Society of North America President to pray at Democratic Convention ISNA created by the radical, Saudi-financed Muslim Students Association

Obama's Islamist problemPrint This

Frank J. Gaffney

Democratic presidential candidate Barak Obama's appearance before a large evangelical congregation in Orange County over the weekend underscored an evident imperative of his campaign: Emphasize his Christian faith and put to rest insistent rumors that he secretly adheres to the Islamic creed of his father and youth.

The effort to minimize any grounds for fearing Obama has an abiding, if covert, attachment to Islam has prompted him to risk offending Muslims in order to avoid off-message controversies and photo ops. It is, therefore, curious in the extreme that he is giving a prominent role at next week's Democratic convention to a leader of an organization identified by the Department of Justice as a Muslim Brotherhood front organization and an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism financing conspiracy.

Mattson of ISNA to pray at Demo Convention

Dr. Ingrid Mattson is the president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an organization created by the radical, Saudi-financed Muslim Students Association. She will represent the Muslim community at the first-ever interfaith prayer service at a Democratic nominating convention.

Now, we know from the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial that ISNA is one of many Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated groups operating in America. We also know from a Brotherhood document entered into evidence in that case (which is currently being retried after the first prosecution resulted in a mistrial) that, "The work [of Brotherhood members] in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within, and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions."

The question is why would Barak Obama's campaign – which has prevented Muslim women wearing headcoverings from being in the background of photographs with the candidate and which recently fired a Muslim-outreach coordinator who had ties to another unindicted HLF co-conspirator – allowed itself to be put in such company?

Presumably, the response will be one heard from the Bush administration: ISNA is a large, "mainstream" Muslim-American organization that is an appropriate vehicle for outreach to that community. In fact, Deputy Secretary of Defense Gordon England and former Under Secretaries of State Nick Burns and Karen Hughes are among the senior U.S. government officials who have lavished praise on the group and legitimated ISNA by meeting with Dr. Mattson and others.

The difference is that, for whatever reason, Sen. Obama clearly is exercising care about his public associations with Muslims. Given that, one would think that he would want, in particular, to avoid any actions that could be described as a "third term" for a Bush administration that has repeatedly embraced and allowed itself to be influenced by Muslim Brotherhood fronts.

Certainly, such would seem to be the message of Sen. Obama's cashiering of Mazen Asbahi, his campaign's erstwhile Muslim coordinator. The problem was not simply that Asbahi had served on a board with Jamal Said, who the government chose not to indict but nonetheless implicated in the HLF racketeering conspiracy in support of the terrorist group, Hamas.

It was that the board on which Messrs. Asbahi and Said served was for a company owned by yet another Saudi-funded, Brotherhood front and un-indicted coconspirator: the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). The company, Allied Asset Advisors, is, as the Wall Street Journal put it: "a subsidiary of the North American Islamic Trust...which is supported financially by the government of Saudi Arabia, holds title to many mosques in the U.S. and promotes a conservative brand of Islam compatible with the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood and also akin to the fundamentalist style predominant in Saudi Arabia." NAIT is, in other words, a powerful instrument in the Islamists' campaign to dominate and radicalize the Muslim community in America. ISNA's Dr. Mattson is an ex officio member of the NAIT board of directors.
Another problem for Sen. Obama would have been that Allied Asset Advisors is one of a growing number of companies that engages in Shariah-Compliant Finance (SCF). This practice ostensibly eschews investments involving interest, pork, gambling and other activities considered impure by authoritative Shariah advisors. Far from being just one of many religious-based "socially responsible" investing options, however, SCF is a vehicle for legitimating the Islamists' repressive, totalitarian Shariah code and establishing its seditious tenet that Muslims here will not be governed by the U.S. Constitution and laws.
Whatever the reasons for the Democratic presidential candidate's sensitivities about the Islamic faith, he has an obligation to make clear his attitude towards the Muslim Brotherhood, its mission in America and his willingness to be associated with its front organizations. It is still the case that most Muslims in this country do not want any part of Shariah law. It behooves Sen. Obama to make known now whether he is willing to embrace those who do, and his true attitude towards their ambition to impose the Islamists' barbaric code here through such subterfuges as Shariah-Compliant Finance.

Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Defends Recently-Resigned Obama Campaign AdvisorPrint This
E-mail This
Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report

The English language website of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood has issued a rather extraordinary statement in connection with the recently-resigned Obama campaign Muslim outreach adviser. The statement opens repeating what has now become the standard accusations of “Islamaphobia”, a charge routinely leveled by the global Muslim Brotherhood against its critics:

“The ongoing controversy in the U.S. surrounding resignation of Mr. Mazen Asbahi, Muslim-outreach advisor to presumptive democratic presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama, is quite intriguing. Mr. Asbahi is an Arab American corporate attorney who resigned last week amidst allegations of old loose ties with individuals associated with organizations thought to be linked to the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). Mr. Asbahi’s crime is that he also appeared as a guest speaker before such organizations allegedly linked to the MB. Islamic organizations in the U.S. described the campaign against Mr. Asbahi as ‘nationwide efforts by Islamophobes who seek to deny Muslims access to the political process.’ ”

Previous posts have detailed a more accurate accounting of these events which refute the widely reprinted statement that Mr. Asbahi’s ties to the Brotherhood are “old and loose.”

The statement goes on to deny that the Muslim Brotherood has any “representation” in the U.S and lists all of the organizations routinely identified by the GMBDR as part of the U.S. Brotherhood, stating that it has “absolutely has no organizational links, ties, or associations” with any of these organizations:

“The MB has repeatedly denied it has any representation in the U.S., nor does it maintain any links with any of the Islamic or charitable organizations in the U.S. We have previously clarified that moderate and pragmatic Islamic thought is not exclusive of the MB, however, there are many other Islamic movements and organizations throughout the world that have the same mainstream principles as the MB but not necessarily part of its organizational structure. In this regard, the MB confirmed that it absolutely has no organizational links, ties, or associations with any of the Islamic organizations in the U.S., including but not limited to: The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), the Muslim Student Association (MSA), the Muslim American Society (MAS), and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). “

Space prohibits an exhaustive listing of the links, ties, and associations of all these organizations with the global Brotherhood but it is instructive to consider the case of the Muslim American Society (MAS). The Chicago Tribune reported in 2004 that Mohammed Mahdi Akef, now the Egyptian Brotherhood Supreme Guide, says he helped found the MAS by lobbying for the change during trips to the U.S. The Tribune investigation further reported that despite an alleged push for openness by Akef and other MAS leaders, the MAS decided that it would operate by concealing its Muslim Brotherhood affiliation.

Investigative research has also extensively documented the Muslim Brotherhood origins and ties of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), created by Brotherhood leaders who were instrumental in the earlier founding of the Muslim Student Association (MSA) and who also went on to found the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). Other research has documented the origins of the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) out of the Hamas infrastructure in the U.S. Both federal prosecutors and a cache of internal U.S. Brotherhood documents introduced into federal court proceedings further identify and support the identification of many of the organizations in question as part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

Rather oddly, after denying the ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Egyptian Brotherhood statement goes on to acknowledge the origins of many of these organizations in the Muslim Brotherhood:

“There are however, ideological similarities between the MB and most of above mentioned Islamic organizations for the fact that these ideologies represent mainstream moderate Islamic thinking. However, some of the founders or members of these organizations were at some point in their lives either members or sympathizers of the MB in their native countries before they migrate to the U.S. or other countries. During the 1960s, many members of the MB have fled Egypt to escape persecution by the Egyptian regime. Most of them settled in European countries or the U.S. and benefited from the atmosphere of freedom and prosperity in these countries and continued to practice and promote moderate Islamic thought. Thus, several local Islamic organizations were created to help Muslims integrate within their local communities and engage in charitable work mandates by Islam. Islamic work worldwide was also enriched by Muslim students who studied abroad and were keen on practicing their religion. In the U..S, several of these local active groups have merged and created large national organizations widely known throughout the country. “

The statement then asserts what might best be called a distortion of the facts by asserting that the “ties between the MB and any of the U.S.-based organizations were extensively scrutinized during the Holy Land Foundation trial.”:

“Most of the alleged ties between the MB and any of the U.S. based organizations were extensively scrutinized during the Holy Land Foundation trial and were found groundless by the juries in court case that ended in mistrial. The prosecution in this case failed to establish any evidence that link the MB as an organization with any of the Islamic organizations in the U.S., but instead presented the court with notes, diaries and minutes of meetings among individuals who were not in any form or shape part of the MB and were not representing it, although they might of shared its ideology as we previously alluded to. “

The Muslim Brotherhood ties of the Holy Land defendants were not part of the charges against them and this statement appears to be designed rather to discredit the internal Brotherhood documents discussed above that were introduced as part of the trial.

Next, the statement claims that the global Muslim Brotherhood network is “Hollywood fiction” while at the same acknowledging the “coordination among the different MB chapters in various countries, in which the MB has formal presence or representation”, as good a definition as any of a network:

“The so called Global Network of the Muslim Brotherhood is merely a Hollywood fiction that only exists in the minds of those who created it as part of their scare tactics to insight fears among the public and instigate government hostilities. There is no “global network” for the Muslim Brotherhood, but rather coordination among the different MB chapters in various countries, in which the MB has formal presence or representation, which clearly does not apply to the U.S. This coordination among international MB chapters mainly revolves around political issues, sharing experiences in the field of public Islamic work and exchange new ideas. “

The issue of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood has already been discussed so it is instructive to look at others who have also identified a global Muslim Brotherhood network. For example, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which few would describe as a “radical special interest group”, describes the global Muslim Brotherhood network as follows:

“The original Egyptian organization has spawned branches in 70 countries. These organizations bear the Brotherhood name, but their connections to the founding group vary and some of them may provide financial, logistical, or other support to terrorist organizations. “

As an earlier post discussed and contrary to the CFR statement, it appears that none of the Brotherhood organizations outside of Egypt identifies themselves as such. However, as that post also observed, Brotherhood leaders themselves have acknowledged the existence of a global Brotherhood network. For example, in June of this year the first Deputy chairman of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood was asked about the “international Muslim Brotherhood and replied:

“There are entities that exist in many countries all over the world. These entities have the same ideology, principle and objectives but they work in different circumstances and different contexts. So, it is reasonable to have decentralization in action so that every entity works according to its circumstances and according to the problems it is facing and in their framework.”

The GMBDR has chosen to use the term “Global Muslim Brotherhood Network” as a shorthand to refer to the worldwide collection of Brotherhood “entities.” It should also be added that it would seem unlikely that given representation in 70 countries, a figure attributed to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide in a 2005 newspaper interview, the Brotherhood would have no representation in the U.S.

The end of the statement takes on the shrillest of possible tones asserting that unidentified “allegations” were made by organizations, presumably including the GMBDR and the Wall Street Journal, with an “extreme ideology of hate and evil.”

“We call on the public to carefully examine any allegations spread by special interest groups in the U.S. to smear certain individuals or groups for political gain in a heated presidential campaign season. These radical special interest groups and lobbies are driven by extreme hate towards Muslims and feel that Islamic moderation and the presence of strong Islamic organizations in the U.S is a major threat to their extreme ideology of hate and evil. “

It probably should be repeated at this point that no allegations were ever made by the GMBDR or the Wall Street Journal against Mr. Asbahi. As previous posts have discussed, the GMBDR merely identified public documents linking Mr. Asbahi to a variety of U.S. Brotherhood organizations followed by an inquiry by the Journal to the Obama campaign. At no time, has the accuracy of what was reported by the GMBDR been challenged.

Good for Barack Hussein Obama but not for America!!!

Dear Fellow American,

During his recent speech in Berlin, Barack Obama tried to ingratiate himself to the foreign crowd by claiming loudly that he was “a citizen of the world.”

The problem is Obama’s self-proclaimed global “citizenship” appears to go well beyond just a rhetorical device to gain favor with a European throng full of pie-in-the-sky utopians.

It seems the Democrats’ would-be president of the United States of America really believes that the rest of the world’s problems, and approval, trump the interests of Americans when it comes to how we live our lives and where our money is spent.

While stumping for the support of his party’s leftist base, Obama proclaimed, "we can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times . . . and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK."

And now he’s putting your money where his mouth is.

A bill he has sponsored in the U.S. Senate, the so-called Global Poverty Act
(S. 2433), would raise the amount of American tax dollars allocated to United Nations’ redistribution efforts to $845 billion.

That’s $2,500 from every American taxpayer, when many in our country already are struggling to make ends meet.

And if you think taxes and energy costs are high now, wait until Obama’s global energy and production taxes are made law by the Nancy Pelosi/Harry Reid-run Democrat Congress.

Is this what Pelosi meant when she said, “I’m trying to save the planet! I’m trying to save the planet!”?

Senator Obama and the Democrats don’t seem to understand that American prosperity is a result of the hard work of American citizens in a free market economy. And that the American people already are the most generous in the world when it comes to global aid.

Help us show Barack Obama that Americans don’t need foreign approval to lead their lives as they see fit, and that he ought to remember that he is running for president of the United States, not the United Nations.

Please make a secure online contribution of $2,000, $1,000, $500, $100, $50 or $25 today to provide Republican candidates with the resources they urgently need to tell voters about the Obama Democrats’ plans for America.

The future of an America whose government makes its own citizens its first priority may depend on it.

B. Hussein Obama’s Muslim Connection Whats in a name.....

Obama’s Muslim Connection Won’t Go Away

Thursday, August 7, 2008 12:15 PM

By: Jim Meyers

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s ties to Islam is a story line that is not going away, according to a recent analysis by the Project for Excellence in Journalism.

“Rumors that Barack Obama was a secret Muslim whose patriotism was questionable first appeared on blogs and in e-mail messages,” PJE noted.

“In March, the rumors began to show up in the press, though only minimally.”

PJE’s News Coverage Index found that media reports about these rumors accounted for 0.4 percent of the “campaign newshole” from mid-March to mid-April.

But coverage has steadily increased since then, and accounted for 3.8 percent of the campaign news from mid-June to mid-July.

Obama has denied he is a Muslim or ever was a practicing Muslim.

The basis of the “rumor” germinates with Obama’s father, who was a Muslim, though Obama claims he was non-practicing. Adding to the mix is Obama’s full name, Barack Hussein Obama, which is an Arabic name.
Obama’s biological father disappeared from his son’s life soon after he was born and returned to his native Kenya.

Obama’s Kansas-born mother and her second husband, an Indonesian who was also a Muslim, moved from Hawaii to Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital, in 1967. Obama lived there from ages 6 to 10.

Reports dating back as far as early 2007 held that Obama was educated at a radical Islamic school in Indonesia.

Press accounts revealed that in fact, Obama first attended a Catholic school for almost three years. However, his mother registered him in the school as a Muslim.

Some press reports indicated that Obama attended a radical madrasa, a school for radical Islamics. But that story was found to be untrue.

In the wake of that controversy, the Los Angeles Times sent a reporter to Jakarta to ferret out the truth.

The Times report, published on March 16, 2008, revealed:

• A close boyhood friend of Obama, Zulfin Adi, said Barack "was a Muslim. He went to the mosque."

• Obama's first-grade teacher at a Catholic school, Israella Dharmawan, said: "Barry (Barack's nickname) was Muslim. He was registered as a Muslim because his father was Muslim."

• In the third grade, Obama transferred to a public school, where he was also registered as a Muslim. At the school, Muslim students attended weekly religion lessons about Islam.

Some of these details have been confirmed by Obama himself. In his autobiography, "Dreams From My Father," Obama mentions studying the Koran and describes the public school as "a Muslim school."

Earlier this year, Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs claimed: "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian."

But the facts suggest that statement is not exactly true.

Middle East Forum director Daniel Pipes wrote on that his research led him to conclude that "Obama was born a Muslim to a non-practicing Muslim father and for some years had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of his Indonesian stepfather."

After the Los Angeles Times conducted its own investigation, Gibbs amended his previous statement on behalf of Obama, telling the Los Angeles Times: "Obama has never been a practicing Muslim," the key word being "practicing."

After the Los Angeles Times report, Obama’s hometown newspaper, the Chicago Tribune, came to his rescue, publishing its own story about Obama’s Indonesian years less than two weeks after the Times report.

The Tribune said they had re-interviewed Obama’s boyhood friend Adi. He told the Tribune he was not sure Obama had been a practicing Muslim. The Tribune also claimed it conducted “interviews with dozens of former classmates, teachers, neighbors and friends” — all who indicated that Obama “was not a regular practicing Muslim when he was in Indonesia.'"

Despite heated denials — perhaps fueled by his attendance at Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakan’s Million Man March — doubts linger about Obama’s religious status.

For example, The New Yorker magazine’s recent controversial cover depicting Obama in traditional Muslim clothing — sandals, robe and turban – reflects those doubts.

The PJE’s News Coverage Index examines about four dozen news outlets to determine what is being covered and what is not.

Many of the news accounts surrounding this story have reported stories debunking the belief that Obama was or still is a Muslim. Nevertheless, a recent poll by the Pew Research Center found that 12 percent of respondents believed the candidate is a Muslim.

Poll results released in mid-July by Newsweek magazine showed that 26 percent of respondents believe Obama was sworn in as a U.S. senator on a Koran, 26 percent believe he was raised as a Muslim, and 39 percent believe he attended an Islamic school as a child growing up in Indonesia.

While rebuffing reports of his ties to Islam, Obama has insisted there is “nothing wrong” with being a Muslim.

But any perceived link between Obama and Islam could be detrimental to his campaign, polls show.

A survey by Fox News/Opinion Dynamics conducted when Mitt Romney, a Mormon, was a Republican presidential candidate found that 32 percent of voters said they would be less likely to vote for a presidential candidate who is Mormon — while 45 percent said they would be less likely to vote for a Muslim.

And a poll by the Pew Research Center disclosed that 35 percent of Americans have an unfavorable view of Muslims.

Why Barack Hussein Obama has no time for Town Hall Debates with the American People!!!

Exclusive: Obama’s Excellent European Adventure, Part Deux?

Pam Meister

Barack "Hussein" Obama has said he has no time for Town Hall Debates with Sen. John McCain and the American People, he is too busy Jet Setting with the Anti-American Celebrity crowd!

Never say Barack Obama is a quitter. Despite the noticeable lack of bounce from his recent sojourn to the Old World (not enough air in his tires, perhaps?), he plans on returning to Europe after the Democrat Convention in order to woo celebs and other well-heeled supporters in Geneva, Switzerland at an event hosted by none other than George Clooney.

Yes, that George Clooney, who recently bought the rights to yet another anti-Iraq war film and is considering one of the lead roles for himself. Considering how well other anti-war films have done recently, you know he’s not looking to make money but probably has his eye on Oscar. And he’ll no doubt get it for being “brave enough” to make a movie that is critical of our presence in Iraq. Sticking it to the man, questioning authority, and all of that rebelliousness that made the ‘60s so repulsive…I mean, groovy, man, groovy! Peace out.

I tell you, if you could bottle Clooney’s brand of bravery, Osama bin Laden and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would be begging to turn themselves into the feds! But be sure to question the timing if it happens on Bush’s watch.

For $1,000 a pop, you can hear Clooney sing the praises of Obama at the reception. And if you’re one of the lucky few (75 to be exact), for $10,000 you can sit down to a rubber chicken and arugula dinner while Obama talks about the bitter, gun-clinging Bible-thumping folks back home who couldn’t afford a plane ticket to Geneva, let alone spend another ten grand to see the Messiah turn a commonplace meal into an elegant feast just by being there. (I have a feeling Mayhill Fowler from Huffington Post won’t be invited to this one.)

Another Kodak moment, brought to you by the Obama campaign. Say Brie cheese!

It’s funny how Obama is planning to go to a fundraiser in Europe hosted by a mega celebrity, considering the outrage by his campaign over this ad by the McCain campaign about Obama’s high-flying celebrity status. And so soon after the convention? Shouldn’t he be campaigning here in America? Shouldn’t he be accepting John McCain’s invitations to join him at town hall meetings so he can take questions on the issues from real, everyday Americans about things like the economy and national security?

All throughout this campaign we’ve heard Obama claim that his opponents are using “distractions” in order to avoid talking about the real issues. In fact, I almost feel that “distraction” has become a dirty word. Yet the biggest distraction during this campaign has been Obama himself. Not only is he telling everyone what they can and cannot talk about – we can’t mention his former pastor, his relationships with domestic terrorists and card-carrying Communists, or his wife’s comments as his proxy on the campaign trail – but he’s also changed his position on everything from offshore drilling to when the troops should come home from Iraq faster than Brad and Angelina can sign the adoption papers for their next kid. (They want to be the first on their block to collect the whole set.)

In addition to Hope and Change™, Obama’s also banking his candidacy on a law degree (a dime a dozen in Washington), his experience as a community organizer (a.k.a. rabble rouser), his days as an Illinois state senator (where his voting record consisted of nearly 130 “presents”) and his 143+ days as a U.S. senator, where his biggest accomplishment has been to advance legislation that will cost American taxpayers a whopping $845 billion more than we already spend in foreign aid to help stop “global poverty” – with plenty of guidance from the UN.

My husband says that in retrospect, Obama makes John Kerry look experienced.

Some people believe that Obama’s trip to Switzerland will soon be canceled because of “the PR nightmare of leaving the country again to go hobnob and fleece international elites in Switzerland right before the election.” Perhaps since this event is set to happen during the Republican convention, the Obama campaign figured the fundraiser would fly under the radar.

But while Obama is busy seeking funding from Clooney & Co. in the exotic setting of Geneva, average Americans are wondering how they will fill up their cars and buy groceries for the week. They’re also looking at the continually improving situation in Iraq and see McCain as a much stronger Commander-in-Chief.

Sit down, take a load off and enjoy the cheese and crackers…the election is still a few months away!

Breaking: Senate Still Pushing Obama's $845 Billion United Nations Tax

Breaking: Senate Still Pushing Obama's $845 Billion United Nations Tax

"The Global Poverty Act of 2007 (S.2433) is coming up for a Senate vote... according the office of Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison. Once Harry Reid and the Democrat leadership put it on the calendar, we could have as little as a week to prepare for the vote." - Lee Cary, The American Thinker

If Cary is right, Senator Barack Hussein Obama's only major legislative accomplishment as a United States Senator -- which according to some conservative leaders is potentially an $845 billion United Nations give away of your hard-earned tax dollars -- could be coming up for a stealth vote when Congress comes back into session!

"The Case Against Barack Obama"

Dear GOPUSA Reader:
This new book -- "The Case Against Barack Obama" -- was released this week. It is published by the same group that brought you "Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry." This new book about Barack Obama could change the outcome of the election. Please read the info below and get your copy with our Free Offer -- Go Here Now.

The Case Against Barack Obama
The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media's Favorite Candidate

You Don't Know Barack Obama Until You Read This Book.

This new book -- "The Case Against Barack Obama" is published by the same group that brought you "Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry" -- the book that defeated John Kerry in 2004.

Already the liberal media has condemned "The Case Against Barack Obama" because it could change the outcome of the election.

Make no doubt about it, Barack Obama is the media's darling, the fresh face of the Democratic ticket. But what does Barack Obama really stand for and will his extreme liberal agenda and complete inexperience in global affairs endanger the country?

That's what David Freddoso, investigative reporter and National Review Online columnist, examines in "The Case Against Barack Obama"

Has any major candidate for president of the United States ever received less critical examination than Barack Obama? Who is this man, who was only elected to the U.S. Senate in 2004?

How did someone with his meager record of accomplishment become the Democratic nominee for president? How did someone with the most liberal voting record in the U.S. Senate and long-standing relationships with a former terrorist, a racist minister, and the corrupt operators of Chicago Machine politics end up as a supposed beacon of a newer, cleaner, bipartisan politics?

Investigative reporter David Freddoso has the answers. Doing the legwork that the mainstream media has neglected, applying a critical eye while the media swoons before the Obama-messiah, and posing the hard questions that Obama needs to answer, Freddoso reveals a politician as calculating as any other, a far-left Democrat who goes beyond "abortion rights" to supporting de facto infanticide, whose "new politics" amount to Chicago-style hardball overlain with lofty rhetoric, and who, from his positions of power, has helped his patrons.

In "The Case Against Barack Obama", you'll learn:

How Obama's friendship with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright was no accident, but a carefully thought-out personal and political decision

The inside story of Obama's association with terrorist Bill Ayers wouldn't matter -- an expose of the insular radical chic of Chicago's Hyde Park politics

The real story of Obama as a puppet of Mayor Daley's corrupt Chicago political machine

What Obama really did for convicted developer Tony Rezko

Debunking the myth of Obama's "new" politics: how Obama won his first election by throwing all of his competitors off the ballot

The new 'Dirty Politics': how underhanded politics sabotaged Obama's opponents in his 2004 Senate race

A story Obama would like to stay buried in Chicago: how he used his clout as a U.S. senator to save the corrupt Cook County Political Machine when reformers of both parties tried to challenge the entrenched political bosses

How Barack Obama opposed a bill banning infanticide-by-neglect -- a stance too extreme even for Nancy Pelosi. (Freddoso has an exclusive interview with the nurse central to the case.)

Why the National Abortion Rights Action League says Obama is the most pro-abortion candidate they have ever backed

How Obama has repeatedly steered taxpayer money to campaign donors

Why Obama's inexperience and extreme left-wing voting record is more dangerous than any threat we face today

Why the Rev. Wright debacle reveals Obama's poor judgment of character and deceitful nature

Why it won't be politics of change with President Obama — it will be liberal politics as usual
And much, much more.

Sober, fair, and thoroughly researched -- and all the more powerful and provocative because of it -- "The Case Against Barack Obama" removes the halo from a man less qualified, and more radical, than the mainstream media has let you know.

Find out why electing this man as our Commander-in-Chief could be the most dangerous decision in American history.

Obama Promises to Stop ICE Deportations!!!!!

Obama Promises to Stop ICE Deportations

ALERT: We have an opportunity to FIGHT BACK against the supporters of illegal immigration -- but we need YOUR help to do it, TODAY.

“Obama has already stated publicly that he will use his executive powers to stop the ICE raids in the country.” - We Are America Alliance

Support and Join the MASSIVE Anti-Illegal Alien Rally at the Democrat Convention

Obama has already stated publicly that he will use his executive powers to stop the raids in the country. All anyone will see or hear is pandering to the open borders special interest groups, like La Raza and MALDEF, for a whole week who are calling for a DNC National March in Denver-Aug 28, 2008 "WE ARE AMERICA : IMMIGRANT RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS and pushing Democrats to support the “We Are America Alliance” that is calling on the nation’s illegal alien immigrant rights forces and its allies to massively march in Denver during the National Democratic Convention to send an unequivocal message and influence the Democratic Party leadership, the convention delegates, the Latino Establishment and of course Barack Obama.

The Illegal Alien Force Attack Continues as they SAY that:

“If all goes as envisioned and the right gets trounced significantly in November, after the elections, its troops and organizations will be in disarray, spiritless and demoralized and their leadership will be discredited. By then, the immigrant rights movement will have taken the offensive. In this context, the next May 1st 2009 national mass action becomes key in the potential victory for an inclusive and humane legalization program for the 13 million plus undocumented immigrants, their 4 million US born children and the estimated 2 million US citizens married to undocumented spouses.” - We Are America Alliance

Unless WE step up and make our voices heard even LOUDER!

Your country needs you now! The Minutemen and women need you now! If you are one of the thousands who have already contributed to the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps (MCDC), we thank you for your sacrifice—but we need you if possible to redouble your efforts and donate again. If you have never donated we ask you to join us by making a generous financial contribution AND by becoming a Minuteman Volunteer.

“We’re Not Gonna Stop” - Make the Feds Do Their Job!

Stand Up Against Democrat Leaders' Plans for AMNESTY – Select below to Support A MASSIVE Anti Illegal Alien Rally at the Democrat Convention:

This month, August 25-28, the Democratic National Convention will be held in Denver, Colorado. This will be one of the biggest meetings of pro-amnesty, pro-illegal alien politicians in a long, long time -- all eager to push their agenda against American sovereignty in front of fifteen thousand reporters and their television cameras from across the country.

So we've decided to do exactly that -- by helping to organize a MASSIVE pro-American, pro-sovereignty, pro-border security, anti-illegal immigration rally RIGHT THERE at the Democrat National Convention!

We're teaming up with local activists on the ground in Denver to stage this HUGE rally, which will feature dozens of prominent speakers and leaders in the fight for border security. We've secured a GREAT location at a large park, right near the Pepsi Center where 35,000 people will be attending the Democrat Convention!

Imagine -- 35,000 people, including 15,000 reporters, are hearing YOUR message AGAINST illegal immigration, LOUD AND CLEAR!

The plans are already moving forward… but it's going to cost a LOT of money, so we need YOUR help to keep them moving!

Our allies on the ground in Denver are putting the final details in place for a HUGE rally on the first day of the convention, plus more protests, pickets, counter-protests, media blitzes, and more the rest of the week. MCDC has already committed FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS to get things rolling in Denver -- but we need to have that money in hand!

PLEASE, can YOU help us to get the message out in Denver this summer?

TAKE ACTION: As you know from the large rallies and protests that MCDC has helped to lead against the radical left over the last few years, we are very frugal with your money. This massive rally, even with the other planned events over three days, should cost under $15,000. That's amazing, especially with having to cover application fees, the park fee, damage deposits to the city, off-duty police security, portable stages, power generators, property insurance, port-a-potties, waste bins, sound systems, and even shuttle buses that will travel between the park and a designated commuter lot to prevent traffic and parking problems!

We've got to keep the ball rolling, though. We need your help right away. Some of our supporters can donate $1,000 -- if you can give that amount, we'll be able to make our payment deadlines this week immediately. If you can't give that much, any amount will help -- $500, $250, $100, $50, or whatever you can afford. Please, select below NOW to make your best contribution:

Be sure to send this to EVERYONE you know who wants to help STOP illegal aliens at the border! Thank you!

P.S.: We've got a great lineup of speakers planned for this rally! Invited speakers include Chris Simcox and Carmen Mercer of the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps; Alan Keyes; Rep. Tom Tancredo; Chuck Baldwin; Bob Barr; radio personality Frosty Woolridge; and many more, including Yours Truly! Plus, we'll be showing Border the Movie continuously during the entire rally!

We're already facing major opposition from the left in the streets of Denver -- a group called "Recreate 68" is planning "Days of Resistance" marches and rallies during that same week. We need to make sure the forces of open borders are countered in front of all America! Please help us TODAY!

Barack Hussein Obama "Dr. No "

No We Can't!

On the campaign trail, Barack Hussein Obama is fond of chanting "Yes We Can" but when it comes to taking real steps to alleviate the financial suffering of average Americans he's really saying, 'No We Can't!'

Here's what Senator Jon Kyl recently said:

"'Dr. No,' or as we in the Senate are referring to it, as a mantra of 'No, we can't.' No, we can't drill offshore. No, we can't drill the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico. No, we can't do oil shale. Of course, he said he's not a proponent of nuclear [energy], so no, we can't do that. He's even said, 'No, we shouldn't do a reward for the technology improvement for a battery that would allow people to use those kind of vehicles.' It's a very negative approach, which basically says there are no answers to the hurt that Americans are suffering right now. "

The McCain campaign was quick to jump on the bandwagon. McCain campaign spokesman Brian Rogers said:

"It's just very clear at this point that Senator Obama is Dr. No on energy security. Today it was 'no' on the $300 million for a new kind of battery. Before it was 'no' on further exploration or possibility of further exploration of our coasts. It was 'no' on gas tax relief that can help this summer families that are hurting. It's 'no' on expanded nuclear power investments that we can make."

Why is Barack Hussein Obama "Dr. No" when it comes to a real energy policy that will free us from the grip of foreign oil and lower the prices at the pump for all Americans?

And why are Reid and Pelosi frantically OBSTRUCTING and BLOCKING a fair up-or-down vote on offshore drilling?

The answer to that question is simple: If they allowed a vote to actually occur, many Democrats would cave-in and actually vote for the measure!

They don't want that to happen!

But if you put on the pressure, IT WILL!
