Anwar Al-Awlaki’s Boss is Regular White House Visitor

They say that the best way to get to Carnegie Hall is to practice, but the best way to get into the Obama White House is to be an Islamic terrorist or a close supporter of them. The Investigate Project on Terrorism has looked over the White House logs and found it crawling with terrorist supporters. And yes all the usual suspects from CAIR, MPAC and ISNA are there.
Obama may have put out a kill order on Al Qaeda terror imam, Anwar Al-Awlaki, but his old boss is still a welcome visitor.
Esam Omeish, former head of the Muslim Brotherhood-created Muslim American Society, visited the White House three times.
In 2000, Omeish personally hired the late terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki to be the imam of Falls Church, VA, Dar al-Hijrah mosque. According to IPT analysis, more terrorists have been linked to Dar al-Hijrah since 9/11 than to any other mosque in America.
Omeish publicly mourned the Israeli airstrike that killed Hamas founder Sheikh Ahmed Yassin at an April 10, 2004, MAS conference.
According to video captured by IPT, Omeish went a step further at the December 22, 2000, Jerusalem Day rally in Washington’s Lafayette Park, praising Palestinian terror groups, saying they had learned “the jihad way” to “liberate” Palestine.
Omeish has continued visiting the White House even after the kill order on Al-Awlaki and even after Al-Awlaki’s death, as recently as March of this year. Omeish heads the Libyan Emergency Taskforce and it would be interesting to know that impact this notorious terrorist supporter had on Obama’s Libyan policy.
Then there’s Hussam Ayloush, executive director of CAIR’s Los Angeles office, who, “publicly defended Palestinian terror attacks in comments before Muslim students at the University of California – Los Angeles, saying that terrorists were exercising their “legitimate right” to defend themselves against Israeli occupation.”
And Muzammil Siddiqi, a former head of Islamic Society of North America, who “supported laws in countries where homosexuality is punishable by death.”
Edina Lekovic, an MPAC spokeswoman, visited the White House twice in July 2010. As a UCLA student, Lekovic served as an editor of a Muslim magazine called Al-Talib, which in 1999 ran an editorial calling Osama bin Laden “a great mujahid” and saying when bin Laden is called a terrorist, “we should defend our brother and refer to him as a freedom fighter, someone who has forsaken wealth and power to fight in Allah’s cause and speak out against oppressors. We take these stances only to please Allah.” That issue identified Lekovic as a managing editor.
Imam Talib El-Hajj Abdur Rashid–religious and spiritual leader of Harlem’s Mosque of the Islamic Brotherhood. Rashid rationalized Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s stance on destroying Israel, saying it merely is a “sentiment born of the legitimate anger, frustration, and bitterness that is felt in many [parts of the Muslim World”
Hatem Abudayyeh – executive director of the Chicago-based Arab American Action Network, founded by Rashid Khalidi, a friend of President Obama. Abudayyeh has been under criminal investigation at least since September 2010, when FBI agents raided his home and office in connection with a terror-support probe. In a 2006 interview, Abudayyeh has said, “The U.S. and Israel will continue to describe Hamas, Hezbollah and the other Palestinian and Lebanese resistance organizations as ‘terrorists,'” he said,”but the real terrorists are the governments and military forces of the U.S. and Israel.”
Those are just some of the terrorist supporters that the Obama White House has been engaging with and their presence in the White House visitor logs is a symptom of the rottenness at the heart of this administration’s disastrous foreign policy of terrorist appeasement.
