What’s a few murderous protests between friends anyway?
The Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi, the recently elected president of Egypt, will be a featured participant at the eighth annual meeting of Bill Clinton’s Clinton Global Initiative in New York next week.
Clinton’s welcoming of Morsi to his high-profile event in New York City is surprising and may undermine the tough-on-terror image the Democratic Party is trying to cultivate ahead of the November elections.
This is also not the first high-profile Muslim Brotherhood figure embraced publicly by the Clintons. During the 1990s, Abdurahman Alamoudi—later convicted of laundering money for an al Qaeda assassination scheme—was the Clintons’ chief liaison to the Islamic community. Alamoudi’s brother has been a large donor to the Clinton Foundation.
Upon winning his election for the presidency, Morsi pledged to work for the release of terror mastermind Omar Abdel Rahman (the Blind Sheik), now serving a life sentence for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other attempted attacks in New York City.
But wait folks, that’s all.
Master of Ceremonies Bill will be bringing you some of the finest elected Jihadists from around the world. Direct from Libya, Libyan President Mohamed Magariaf will also be on the scene and he may just burn the place down once he gets there. For a Global Initiative, CGI seems to feature a lot of Muslims and hardly any Japanese or Chinese guests. They must not have donated enough to the Clinton Cigar Fund.
