On September 25, the 23rd Arab-American Candidates’ Night Dinner was held in Virginia, attended by 46 Democrats and Republicans seeking office, with former governor and current Democratic Senate candidate, Tim Kaine, as a major speaker. The dinner honored a top Muslim Brotherhood official affiliated with Hamas named Jamal Barzinji, an inconvenient and overlooked fact for Kaine’s campaign team.

Tim Kaine was the governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010 and then was the chairman of the Democratic National Committee. He was on the short-list to become President Obama’s running mate. He is now running for Senate and will likely face off against former Senator George Allen, who narrowly lost his seat in 2006 to Senator Jim Webb. Democratic Senator Mark Warner also sent a videotaped message to the conference.

Kaine thanked the audience for their help with his gubernatorial campaign and asked for them to again support him in his quest to become a senator. This is troubling when you consider what else happened that night: A Lifetime Achievement Award was bestowed upon Jamal Barzinji, called a “founding father” of the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. and an associate of Hamas. His Wikipedia page has been altered to boast of the award and Kaine’s attendance.

FBI documents from 1987-1988 flat-out state that Barzinji is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. He played an instrumental role in setting up the Brotherhood networks in the U.S. decades ago. In 1972, he was the president of the Muslim Students Association, identified as a Brotherhood front in the Islamist group’s own documents. He was a founder of the North American Islamic Trust and a top official with the Islamic Society of North America, both labeled by the federal government as “unindicted co-conspirators” in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation for financing Hamas. A judge ruled in 2009 that the government provided “ample evidence” tying the two organizations to Hamas.

Barzinji is the vice president of the International Institute of Islamic Thought, another prominent Muslim Brotherhood front. An internal Brotherhood file from May 1991 lists the IIIT as being part of its American network. The same document frankly says that this network’s goal is to wage a “grand jihad” that results in “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within” so that Sharia-based governance can be instituted.

    I am sure that this story will be reported in the Washington Post following the article about how George W. Bush was correct.

    It should not be surprising that the liberal/leftists, like Kaine, ally themselves with Islam.

    Greed, power hungry candidate, will do anything to get where he wants. Has no conscience, no respect for the people of this country, or his country. Power is the goal.
    Destroy from within….that's the goal. We must open our eyes to what is going on and let these traitors know, we know what they are and what they stand for.

    Is there any realistic way to get this info out to Virginians? I would hope that we could all rally behind such efforts. Start a fund to run ad's on local TV or something? We've got to fight back in every way possible and for me, not living there, one way would be to help get this info out to the people that can effect a change for the good with it. This guy should be exposed and run out of town. I’d like to help see to it.

    I've sent the link to this article to both Glenn Beck and O'Reilly. Maybe if they pick it up the other media will have to start picking it up.

    This is a prime example of leftist thought. The think they can enhance their own power by associated with the likes of this guy. They think they can rub elbows with the enemy and gain advantage over the right. The Muslim Brotherhood is has a mission “from God” to take over for God. We need to enforce and obey all laws. In general the MSM is useless in providing accurate information regarding the enemies of this country. Thank God for the likes of David Horowitz.
