In case you haven’t heard, The Investigative Project on Terrorism just blew the whistle on the Obama administration’s latest interactions with Muslim jihadist.
Sheikh Abdullah bin Bayyah bragged on his Web site that he had met with Team Obama on June 13. IPT reported that bin Bayyah was invited by National Security Council official Gayle Smith “to learn from you and we need to be looking for new mechanisms to communicate with you and the Association of Muslim Scholars.”
Bin Bayyah’s June 13 account placed other senior officials in the meeting, including:Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), National Security Adviser Tom Donilon and White House spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri. But the account was later changed to delete the reference to Donilon’s presence at the meeting.
Smith also thanked Bin Bayyah for “his efforts to bring more understanding among humanity”
So who is Bin Bayyah and why should you care?
Bin Bayyah is vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a group founded by and headed by Yusuf Qaradawi who is considered so radical, he’s banned from entering our country. Qaradawi, considered the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, exhorts followers to kill every last Jew; sanctioned suicide bombings and the killing of our soldiers; expressed support for executing apostates and stoning gays; and declared that the “US is an enemy of Islam.” – Bayyah is his top lieutenant and supporter.
What does this administration hope to accomplish by consorting with radicals? It’s anyone’s guess, but it’s painfully obvious they’ve learned nothing from the recent past.
Just thought you’d like to know.
