Who is Suhail Khan?

Pages: 1 2

[Editor’s note: See Frank Gaffney’s previous pieces on Frontpagemag.com exposing Grover Norquist’s and Suhail Khan’s troubling connections.]

Suhail Khan, a Bush administration veteran, has presented himself as a moderate, pro-American voice in the Muslim Community. But new videos cast serious doubt on that image he’s carefully groomed for himself in Washington.

Shockingly, they show this current American Conservative Union board member consorting with radical Muslim Brotherhood leaders-turned-terrorists, while exalting the death culture of jihadists.

Relevance: This self-proclaimed staunch Republican has made inroads into the GOP leadership on the Hill, where he’s lobbied to:

* Block opposition to the Ground Zero mosque;

* Pooh-pooh the threats from Muslim Brotherhood infiltration and the Shariah legal code it seeks to institutionalize in America;

* Downplay the rising tide of homegrown terror and radicalization, which Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., plans to investigate next month during his important Homeland Security Commitee hearings on the subject.

More alarming, Mr. Khan has — unwittingly or not — helped the bad guys infiltrate the government, from one end of Pennsylvania Avenue to the other.

Before 9/11, as White House gatekeeper to the Muslim community, he helped facilitate a White House meeting with Sami al-Arian, even though al-Arian had been under FBI investigation (al-Arian subsequently served time for terrorism and remains under house arrest for refusing to testify in a related terror case). As a Hill staffer in the mid-1990s, moreover, Mr. Khan convinced then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich to reserve a room in the Capitol for Muslims to pray. Consequently, according to Fox News, a parade of extremists — including cleric Anwar Awlaki, who the U.S. government now hopes to assassinate for his terrorist work for al-Qaida — led prayers and spoke there.

Mr. Khan is now a spokesman for the Congressional Muslim Staff Association, working with a Muslim convert named Jihad Saleh Williams (of all the Arabic names he could have picked, he chose Jihad). Mr. Khan spends a lot of time on the Hill. He’s briefed GOP leadership staff on various issues and has now cozied up to some of House Speaker John Boehner’s people. He’s even gained the trust of key staffers running the Republican Study Committee, the caucus for conservatives in the House.

None of them knew of his radical ties. Some told me they weren’t even aware he’s Muslim.

Now that the jig is up, Mr. Khan has gone into damage control mode. Last week, in a six-page letter to fellow ACU board members, including chairman David Keene, he tried to explain away the damning videos — which, among other things, show him receiving an award from the notorious Abdurahman Alamoudi, now behind bars as one of al-Qaida’s top fundraisers in America. He claims he had no choice but to speak to Alamoudi’s group, that the Bush White House sent him, blah, blah.

But nobody at the White House forced him to speak in 1999 to the radical Islamic Society of North America, where he sounded at one point much like a jihadist, praising the “mujihadeen” who martyr themselves “for the cause of Islam,” and braying about how “the early Muslims loved death more than the oppressors loved life.” He invoked all the major hotspots of the jihadi circuit at the time: “Bosnia” … “Kashmir” … “Palestine” … “Iraq.” All the while, the video captures Mr. Khan wiping tears of anger from his cheeks. Here is a transcript from that section of his speech to ISNA:

“We are charged by almighty Allah to protect our fellow brothers and sisters and we know of many, so many, here in America and across the globe who are in dire need of protection … A Muslim is a brother to a Muslim. Neither he harms him nor does he hand him to another for harm. … Here in the United States, Muslims are often faced with discrimination, harassment and outright hatred. Mosques are burned. Islamic centers are vandalized, desecrated. Mosques and Islamic centers and schools face constant discriminatory zoning decisions. Muslim families are harassed and hindered from travel from at airports as they are profiled as quote unquote terrorists or security risks. … Our freedoms, my dear brothers and sisters, are under attack. Our freedom to associate with whomsoever we choose, to speak out politically and religiously, to travel, to practice our faith as Allah has instructed us as God-fearing men and women must be protected. And these rights must be defended with all the determination, all the resources, all the unyielding vigilance of the believing mujahid. … This is the mark of the Muslim. The earliest defenders of Islam would defend their more numerous and better equipped oppressors, because the early Muslims loved death, dying for the sake of almighty Allah, more than the oppressors of Muslims loved life. This must be the case where we– when we are fighting life’s other battles. … [W]hat are our oppressors going to do with people like us? We’re prepared to give our lives for the cause of Islam.”

    Thank you, for this valuable insight.

  • 888jah

    The muslims are planning our destruction from within. Our politically correct government seems to be helping them and our so called free press is not printing the truth. How are Americans supposed to protect themselves when our government is aiding and abetting the enemy. You want to see mosques go to Dearborn, Mi. Try and build a Christian church in a muslim country and see what happens.

  • davarino

    Wow, the repubs keep disappointing me with their "bipartisan" workings in congress in this new year. I was hoping they were rejuvenated and conservative, but I see they are just playing along like they did for the previous 10 years. Now I hear they are coddling this infiltrator. He should be ostracised and black listed in the party and outed. The tentacles of radical muslims have got to be removed from our government.

    • hijinx60

      You got it , Davarino, I can just hear the outcry, but if we could only see to it that ONLY when there is freedom of worship in any country could their citizens practice freedom of worship here, then many problems would be solved. In WWII America rounded up the Japanese and kept them in internment camps until the war was over. I wish we could do the same thing now only with the mooslims.

  • DogWithoutSlippers

    Just another "Manchurian Candidate!" And another example of political party pandering for votes. Disgusting!

  • DogWithoutSlippers

    P.S. I am turning in my Republican card…………no wonder The Tea Party is on the rise.

    • WildJew

      Right. But we've got to keep our eye on the Tea Party as well. There is a significant and growing Dr. Ron Paul faction within the Tea Party movement that greatly concerns me vis-a-vis national security and the jihad threat. Ron Paul is out to lunch on both in my opinion. I would not "turn in your Republican card." Not yet. I do not believe quitting is a good option. Better to fight for our principles from within. Outside of the GOP, you will not have much of a voice.

  • Walter Scott Hudson

    I was reading an article the other day which was talking about the controversy surrounding ACU and this year's CPAC. It was focused primarily on GOProud, but mentioned this guy Khan as well. I made a soon lost mental note to Google the guy. Turns out this was exactly what I expected to find.

  • Rob

    We need to take control of our govt. There really does appear to be an agenda for war and terrorism. I think it is again a way for the elite to profit, as with all other wars. The muslims are just puppets being driven to cause more wars and justify govt control of everyone. Money and Power. That's what the elite continue to crave. They run the world.

  • tanstaafl

    Islam is Islam and a Muslim is always a Muslim. A "moderate" Muslim is like a moderate Nazi. They may not force Jews into concentration camps, but they ignore the stench.

    • Lori

      Thanks for the great insight ! Just saying It The way It really Is!

  • gommygoomy

    They're ALL the same. Islam is a DEATH CULT. It's a CANCER. Everywhere it goes, DEATH and DESPAIR and HOPELESSNES is sure to follow. They cover their women in Black Death Shrouds, while they put Lipstick and Mascara on their Farm Animals, and display them in "Beauty Contests". They strap Explosives to their children, in the hope that Allah will guide them to someone else' kids, so they can MURDER THEM. They throw ACID in the faces of little girls, for the CRIME of GOING TO SCHOOL. They MURDER their own daughters, for the CRIME of FALLING IN LOVE with someone that her Father didn't set her up with. They STONE their women for the CRIME of BEING RAPED.
    These are not people to be Negotiated with. They are a CANCER. They are DEATH. And they should be treated as what they are.
    To do otherwise, is to invite our own destruction.
    Wake Up.

    • Paul Falcone

      WOW ! right on, not everyone is sleeping , just those at the helm ,unfortunatly we are all on the ship sailing into oblivion. The time for political correctness is over; if we do not pull the plug, we will drown in the slop concocted by spineless liberals who think that evil has a good side. Wake up and smell the bacon. This is not politics, its uglier than that, if you can wrap your mind around it; it is about religion and it is going to be a religious war that will give us back America as it should be, and you can take that to the bank.

  • jacob

    Little to wonder, as stupidity seems to be the prevailing trend of our politicians..____Still resounds in my ears G.W.BUSH braying on TV the very evening of the WORLD TRADE CENTER horror, that "ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE" while the WHOOPI__GOLDBERG and JOY BEHAR's "Moderate" Muslims were dancing and giving out__candy in the streets of QUEENS while people were jumping to their deaths from the__WTC windows….____But not only this, but CAIR had and has the ear of the govmt., much more with the __leanings of the kind of President we have ???____And what to say about the visit of same "Moderates" to the FBI installations ???____And now, what about the "gentlemen" just unmasked by this article ??____Wait for the whitewash or the hell the abject media will most probably raise… ____Do we need an enlarged and improved edition of the WTC horror for this country__to realize once and for all that every practicing Muslim is a terrorist, as this is __what has been hammered into head from craddle to grave and it is what his __"Religion" expects from him ???????

  • kdy

    How many others of these enemies of our country have infiltrated our government w/o us knowing? Where are the background checks on all of these people?? Are we blind or do we just prefer not to see?

  • sharpsrifle

    You should have mentioned, at least in passing, his close alliance with faux Conservative, pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel Grover Norquist. The links between these two piles of filth, one islamist and the other dhimmi, are wide and deep.

  • Cuban Refugee

    Suhail Khan is merely the tip of the iceberg in the multitude of Muslim infiltrators, and their American sympathizers, who wish to bring down our republic from within. Khan's expert-in-deception soul mates, some even wearing patriot masks, are entrenched in the highest echelons of our government; but, thanks to superb reportage such as this, the vermin are being exposed for the putrid slime they are. When light and truth expose their lies, many whom we were sure were trustworthy, and working to preserve the freedom and sovereignty of this nation, will have been found to have succumbed to darkness, and to have sold their soul to Saul Alinsky's hero, Lucifer, for ten pieces of silver.

  • http://ezracanada.org Rev. Roy

    In Sunhail Khan you have the perfect example of a Muslim trained in the art of Al Teqiyyah, lying to advance the cause of Islam. Mohammed taught that this was an honorable thing to do, so how does one combat the lies of Islam when it’s adherents believe that lying is honorable? Mr. Khan has been deceiving everyone “on the hill” for years now with his false smile and friendly comportment. Unless the West wakes up to this vile and cunning deception, they will continue to “turn the other cheek” and be led like lambs to the slaughter
    Mark 7 v 21…23..”For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders. Thefts, covetouness, wickedness, deceit, lascviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile the man. KJV

    Will Peter King find the balls to expose this guy during his hearings on Moslem
    radicalization in the US?

    • Raymond in DC

      Apparently not. Reportedly, King has decided that Steven Emerson and Robert Spencer will not be testifying.

  • http://www.saveourschoolappeal.org.uk Sarah Blake

    Wake Up America! Be aware that the totalitarian zeal of this medieval religion makes for dangerous and cunning enemies, who will bide their time to strike at the heart of democracy. You cannot reason or negotiate with them, as they have been brainwashed from birth to lie to and despise all of us who eschew the teachings of the evils of Islam.

  • Jaladhi

    No Muslim can ever be trusted and they should have no role in our government, defense forces, security forces, finances, and on and on as they are all silent jihadis at the very least. They should have no role here if we want to survive the Muslim death and destruction machine unleashed all over the world. Period!!!

  • Barb

    Our naive nature has gotten us into trouble, once again. After 9/11 – oh hell, after the muslims began their bloody thirsty crusade, centuries ago, we in the West should never have let any of them in, in the first place. But God forbid, we offend anyone. Our inane politically correct way of doing things has bitten us in the arse, and quite honestly, we deserve it at this point.

  • Michael

    Hang him!!! Hes an infultrator!!! Im sick of this!!! The only way we will be able to stop these problems is with death! Im tired of playing nice with these people!! Grow some balls Washington D.C.!!!

    For three decades, America had completely barred all foreign visitors and immigration applicants, who were HIV+, from entering the country. Even those medical professionals who were already here but got infected through job related accident such as through puncture wounds by contaminated needles, were denied the opportunity for a green card and citizenship process without any due process on the ground that the policy protects American public from potential harm and health risk.

    How many time have you heard of foreign vistors or pending immigrants deliberately infected American public with their HIV disease since the disease'eginnning in early 1980? None.

    How many times have you heard muslim foreign visitors, muslims immigrants, naturalized muslim US citizens, etc have attempted to blow up public places in the name of their cult deity with the goal of slaughtering as many Americans as possible? Many to count.

  • Gofigure

    Yet, instead of treating these people as cult zombies with Acquired islamic Disease Syndrome (AIDS) of the brain (contageous paranoid/schizophrenic mental illness) and thus to be barred from coming into this country, they are getting special treatment even in top govt relation. It seems you can discrimnate against a class of people due to their illness, but not against another if that harmful illness is acquired through a "religion".

  • WildJew

    "Suhail Khan, a Bush administration veteran….helped facilitate a White House meeting with Sami al-Arian," according to Sperry, "even though al-Arian had been under FBI investigation." Then Governor Bush campaigned with Al Arian in Florida, 2000. We learned later, Al Arain worked Florida's mosques for Bush. After the elections, Al Arian boasted that he delivered Florida to Bush by getting out the Muslim vote.

    Other jihadists were welcomed by the Bush White House to pray with President George W. Bush, even as Bush assured the American people, "Islam means peace," and the "terrorists are traitors to their faith," etc. I cannot acquit President Bush, a man for whom I voted in 2000. Much of the Bush family's personal wealth comes from business dealings with the Saudis. Bush repeatedly prayed and met with jihadists in their mosques, in the White House; at his Crawford, TX. ranch. He made the establishment of a Muslim-terror state in Israel a formal goal of U.S. policy only days after the 9/11 Muslim-terror atrocities. He said the Jews occupy Muslim land, an egregious falsehood. Even as Bush sought the support of Bible-believing American Christian conservatives, he propagated all these falsehoods about Israel, the land of Israel and Islam. Bush sent Colin Powell and Secretary Rice out to attack Israel day by day.

    Mr. Bush sought to hide the complicity of the Saudi Royal Family and Saudi princes in the September attacks. Close Bush family friend and confidant, James Baker III (that is) his law firm (Baker-Botts) has been defending Saudi Royals and Saudi princes – who are up to their necks giving zakat to Al Qaeda terrorists – from law-suites filed by 9/11 victim's families. Is it any wonder we have our first Muslim-born U.S. president? Then there's Newt Gingrich whom Sperry wrote, reserved a room in the Capitol for extremist Muslims to pray. With "friends like these, who needs enemies?"

  • Patrick Henry

    The man is a citizen and a citizen who plans the destruction of his own country is guilty of treason and treason is punishable by a firing squad. Where are the patriots who will convict him and then execute him?

  • vladimirval

    It is time that we get very serious on the issue of Sharia Law, the Koran, and all that is Islam. Every Imam, in and outside of America, is preaching to have Sharia Law replace our Constitution. That is an all out attack on what this country is all about; individual liberty, freedom, and the pursuit of happiness. This issue cannot be looked at as religious freedom as Islam is a political as well as religious movement. The Koran disallows allegiance to anything and anyone other than Allah. This means that any and all laws instituted by sovereign nations are an affront to all that is Islam and must be abolished.

    Anyone who protects the infiltration of Islam into the fiber of America must read the Koran, Hadith, and Sharia Law. They will see that Islam has dragged ancient rule of “might makes right”, the imposition of totalitarian rule, and barbarism of the seventh century all the way into modern times. To this day, Islam allows (defacto) slavery as a way of life. It flies in the face of “..that all men (kind) are created equal ..” Certainly Islam favors people by “birth right”. Continued in next comment.

  • vladimirval

    (continued from my prev. box) 1776 is when civilized men declared that the people will no longer be burdened by the yolk of lower stature because of birth. A Muslim woman has no more status than a beast of burden. This is especially true as she matures. Muslim women must be ready to be set aside as her man takes (up to 4) younger wives and as many concubines as he can handle. Her status in a court of (Sharia) law is one half that of a man. In a situation of “he said she said”, a woman has no chance. It is only in the past 100 years or so that women have won equal status with men in the enlightened Judeo-Christian western civilizations. Islam is appalled at the concept of women having the right to self determination. But it agrees that burying women to their waist and stoning them to death is a just ritual. (Continued in next cmt box)

  • vladimirval

    (Continued from last cmt box) Islam accepts death as a just sentence to anyone who decides to leave Islam and rejects anything that contradicts it. The mare existence of any thought other than that specifically is stated in the Koran is considered an attack on Islam and the murder of those with these thoughts is justifiable.

    If Islam is allowed to get a hold in America it will eventually destroy western way of life and waste the sacrifices of property and life made by so many.

  • Rose M. Johnson

    It seems to me that the best we (citizens) can do is deluge Peter King's office with calls and emails asking what he intends to do with this information. We have to make Congress aware of our knowledge and intolerance of this practice of allowing Muslim infiltration within our government. We cannot remain silent towards our lawmakers.

  • Liberty

    Fooled again. Why should this surprise anyone. Muslims will lie to your face in order to advance their desire for world domination. When will we learn there is no such thing as a moderate muslim?

  • Old Bob

    Our respect for the First Amendment, makes us reluctant to conclude that some beliefs, including some religious beliefs, are simply inconsistant with public service in a democracy founded upon the concept that all are created equal. Unfortunately, the core beliefs of islam do not embrace the concept of political equality. A muslim seeking a position of influence in our government should be asked if he or she believes in sharia law and jihad. If they cannot answer in the negative they are simply not proper agents of our democracy. Unfortunately, the core beliefs of islam also permit lying to infidels (us) so the response would not be trustworthy. So what do we on earth do with these people without violating our core beliefs. Can a tolerant society tolerate the intolerant?

  • kathy p

    I read about a book written by a muslim back in the twenties. He told muslims that terror tactics were not necessary but that infiltration and deceit was the way for muslims to conquer the west.. He said it was okay for mulims to deny their belief or intentions to impress the west that they were peaceful. This was excusable for them to infiltrate our systems. Is anyone surprised

  • Dean from Ohio

    Well, he's right about one thing: they do love death.

    • Dave

      Problem is, whose death – maybe yours.

  • umustbkidding

    If this were done by a country's citizen it would be called espionage. And frankly a logical move.

  • dawning

    This is indeed good information. But I have decided long ago there is not ONE muslem on the planet that is or can ever be trusted for anything. Much less holding an offoce of ANY authority at any level. Only two things define islam…Jihad and Taqiyya.

  • johneb

    Don't we already have an honorary Brotherhood member as POTUS? I don't think this Kahn guy could do any worse damage to the country. We ar already in a crisis.

  • Watchman

    Why is it that America allows our enemies to just walk on in???? They know by their very belief system that they are ordered to kill us who will not submit to their god. To their koran, To their prophet. And then, on top of it all they either get elected to serve in the government. Are Americans just that dumb? Are we just that ignorant or, are we just that gullible? We really need to get a man from the Constitution Party to run our country. We need a Congress and Senate that are Constitutionist. We need to bring our country back to sanity. We need to bring our country back to what the Founding Fathers had intended. Back to what God Almighty who blessed us with this country wanted. We, as a society, are loosing this God given land, law and just plain common sense.
