Well, the DNC is no longer just on the whacky edge. They have charged full bore (or is that ‘full boar?’) off the loony cliff of radicalism and are currently yelling Allahu Akbar! all the way down. They’ve dhimmied up and have gone weak kneed submissive to radical Islam with the steadfast leadership of Keith Ellison and the guidance of Islamic fundamentalist Louis Farrakhan. Obama and the DNC are indeed staying true to his Islamic roots by giving Islam an honored place at the table for their convention in Charlotte, NC. From RedState:
How BIMA gained access to the DNC is more of a mystery. Muhammad Heshaam Jaaber, the Executive Director, Jibril Hough, spokesman, and Captain James Yusuf Yee, BIMA National Representative for the DNC are the only publicly identified members and each one appears to be connected to U.S. Representative Keith Ellison; the first Muslim ever to be elected to Congress and a former supporter of Louis Farrakhan.
Ellison, who attended President Obama’s Iftar Dinner earlier this month, made the news last month when Representative Michelle Bachmann called for him (among others) to be investigated for ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Whether or not he has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Ellison is not far from them having associates within BIMA. Jasser points out that Hough sought advice from Ellison before proceeding with his Town Hall with Rep. Myrick. Captain Yee (who will be speaking at the event) appears in BIMA’s promotional video for Jumah at the DNC quoting Ellison as saying, “If you’re not at the table, then you’re on the menu.” Yee is described by BIMA as “a chaplain in the U.S. Military” and an “eye witness to to the unjust treatment of military detainees and prisoners of Guantanamo Bay” who was allegedly detained “when he took steps to prevent the injustice.”
However, BIMA fails to mention that Yee was charged by the military with sedition, aiding the enemy, spying, espionage and failure to obey a general order; charges ultimately dropped due to national security concerns about releasing evidence in the case. Also speaking will be Hassen Abdellah, who BIMA has no problem admitting was “a lead defense attorney for the 1993 First World Trade bombing suspects” Ellison has also appeared alongside Wahhaj on many speaking engagements for organizations such as ISNA and NAIF, despite both organizations being fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood. If Ellison is the link between BIMA and the DNC, then can it be said that, not only does he not mind the questionable associations of those within the organization, but also the other speakers they will be bringing in?
The Democratic National Convention will commence from August 31st through September 1st with a focus on Islam. Jumah at the DNC will begin Aug. 29th. 20,000 Muslims are expected to be in attendance. This is according to the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), led by one of the un-indicted co-conspirators in the World Trade Center bombing. The DNC has come full circle since 9-11 and they are now embracing the enemy from within and joining with radical Islam and their hatred of America. Have you ever seen a more clear demarcation between good and evil, light and dark? I haven’t. From Robert Spencer:
Take, for example, BIMA spokesman Jibril Hough. Hough’s mosque, the Islamic Center of Charlotte, is owned by a Muslim Brotherhood group, the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), which was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror funding case. When confronted about this on a radio show, Hough first professed not to be aware of the charges against NAIT, and then refused to disavow the organization, saying only that he himself was “not necessarily” a member of NAIT and: “I was not involved in the decision to allow NAIT to be the [title] holder.”
Meanwhile, the “Grand Imam” for Jumah at the DNC is none other than Siraj Wahhaj. Wahhaj is one of the most sought-after speakers on the Muslim circuit, and has addressed audiences all over the country; in 1991, he even became the first Muslim to give an invocation to the U.S. Congress. After 9/11, his renown as a moderate Muslim grew when he declared: “I now feel responsible to preach, actually to go on a jihad against extremism.” But as with so many other Muslim leaders in the U.S., Siraj Wahhaj is not as moderate as he may appear at first glance.
Wahhaj was several years ago designated a “potential unindicted co-conspirator” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He himself has denounced this designation as essentially meaningless, but he didn’t earn it by doing nothing. In the early 1990s he squired the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel Rahman, all around New York City and New Jersey, sponsoring talks by him in area mosques. The Blind Sheikh, of course, is now serving a life sentence for his role in the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993, as well as in jihad plots to blow up the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels.
Issues to be covered at the convention include: Islamaphobia, Anti-Shariah, Middle Eastern Crisis, the Patriot Act, the National Defense Authorization Act and more. But I am sure they will not cover the fact that our government and military have been infiltrated by radical Islam. Or that the President’s concerns and sympathies so obviously lie with Islam, to the exclusion and persecution/dissing of Christians and especially Jews. Or that Israel is being treated like garbage by Obama and his minions and that Israel most certainly does not have our government’s support in a conflict with Iran or other radical Islamic nations.
Radical terrorist plots within our borders by Muslims will also not be covered and neither will be the spread of Shariah law and its implementation in direct conflict with our Constitution. What is evident from this slobbering elevation of Islam at a political convention, is that Islam is as much a political system as it is a “religion.” This all goes to prove that radical Islam is more about power and control than it is about salvation. Each Muslim who attends is being asked to donate between $500 and $10,000. Even M. Zuhdi Jasser M.D., Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, has expressed serious concerns over all this. Man, if this were the movie Miracle on 34th Street and I were the attorney that had to prove that Obama was a Muslim, it would be a cakewalk. Just sayin’.
The DNC is sooo immersed in their belief in multiculturalism that they have welcomed with open arms Islamic extremists that declare that America will fall unless America “accepts the Islamic agenda.” They have asserted that “if only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate.” It’s like those who embraced Stalin or Hitler – the DNC has embraced hate and national suicide. And they feel fine evidently. The DNC has listed the Islamists attending the DNC function as ‘typical’ of the DNC community. If that is true, then the DNC is no longer the party we knew from our parents. It is now a thoroughly subversive enemy from within and a serious threat to our nation. These same ‘typical’ Muslims declare that Islam is a militant religion and that the US will become a caliphate. Not as long as patriots breathe it won’t.
The DNC has embraced radical Islam. But America hasn’t and the DNC has aligned itself with America’s enemies. We must confront the enemies from without AND within if we are to survive as a nation. While Romney and Ryan embrace the traditional roots of our country’s founding, the DNC embraces those who would conquer America. To the DNC: may the odds NEVER be in your favor again. It will be interesting to see if what Barack Obama calls “one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset,” the Muslim call to prayer will, ‘insha’Allah,’ end the first day of the kickoff to the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Charlotte, NC. I would not be surprised. We, the heirs to Liberty, can only hope — God willing — that this year’s DNC will, indeed be their sunset. I could embrace that.
