He is also a founder of the radical Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church. The mosque is very closely tied to the Brotherhood and Hamas, with a government document accusing it of “operating as a front for Hamas operatives in the U.S.” Anwar al-Awlaki served as the mosque’s imam from January 2001 to March 2002, and its services were attended by two of the 9/11 hijackers and the Fort Hood shooter. It continues to spout extremism to this day.
Barzinji had his home searched as part of a terrorism investigation in 2003. Special Agent David Kane said in a sworn affidavit to the judge authorizing the search that he “is not only closely associated with PIJ [Palestinian Islamic Jihad]…but also with Hamas.”
The affidavit mentioned his ties to Sami al-Arian, a Brotherhood member who secretly led PIJ operations in the U.S. Barzinji held positions with seven other organizations who had their offices raided: The IIIT, SAFA Trust, SAAR, Amana Trust, Mar-Jac Investments, Mena Investments and Reston Investments. Patrick Poole broke the story that the Obama Justice Department has blocked the prosecution of Barzinji, among other top Muslim-American officials tied to the Brotherhood and Hamas.
This isn’t the first time that Kaine has associated himself with Muslim Brotherhood figures masquerading as moderates. In 2007, Kaine appointed the president of the Muslim American Society, Esam Omeish, to the state’s Commission of Immigration. It is well-documented that the MAS is a Brotherhood front, and it was also known that Omeish is on the board of directors of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque. He calls the Muslim Brotherhood a “moderate” organization and admits being influenced by it.
In 2004, Omeish praised the spiritual leader of Hamas as “our beloved Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.” Videotape surfaced of a speech Omeish gave in 2000 where he saluted Palestinians that understand “the jihad way is the way to liberate your land” and pledged to do everything possible to help them. Omeish subsequently resigned, but Kaine did not learn his lesson. Even after that embarrassment, Kaine failed to learn about the Brotherhood network.
The Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. depends upon the ignorance of the media and government officials. It takes advantage of politicians’ desires for Muslim votes, as their commitment to victory makes them overlook the Islamist ties of those they embrace as part of their campaigns. Tim Kaine is the exact type of official the Brotherhood is looking for.
