Obama Meets With Anti-Israel, Pro-Hamas Groups Before Trip to Israel

It’s Hope, Change and Jihad, but what else did you really expect for Peace Tour 2013?

Obama has made it clear all along that he is interested in the Muslim side, not the Jewish side. His allies in the Jewish community are all leftist Anti-Israel groups such as J Street. He has little to no relationship with mainstream pro-Israel leaders. But he has extensive ties to the Islamist crowd.

President Barack Obama met with several controversial anti-Israel Arab groups ahead of his visit to the Jewish state on March 20.

Obama held an “intimate” gathering Monday with Arab American leaders and others to solicit advice and ask questions in preparation for his visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories next week.

I doubt there was a similar meeting with Jewish leaders before a trip to Saudi Arabia, but hey the man did say that he would stand with the Muslims. That’s one place where he kept his word.

Included in the meeting was Haris Tarin, D.C. director of the controversial Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), a Muslim-American group that has falsely accused Israel of harvesting Palestinian organs and has asked for Hamas and Hezbollah to be removed from the list of United States-designated terror groups.

This should come as no surprise, because Barack Hussein Obama has kept MPAC and its founder pretty close, despite a history of support for terrorism.

Also in attendance was the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), a group that has called Israel an “apartheid state” and once presented an award to the author of an essay titled, “Zionism is a Form of Racism.”

ADC also has a predictable record of defending Hamas.

In 1994, then-ADC President Hamzi Moghrabi said, “I will not call [Hamas] a terrorist organization. I mean, I know many people in Hamas. They are very respectable … I don’t believe Hamas, as an organization, is a violent organization.” Two years later, his successor, Hala Maksoud, defended Hamas’ partner in Mideastern terrorism, Hezbollah. “I find it shocking,” Maksoud said, “that [one] would include Hezbollah in … [an] inventory of Middle East ‘terrorist’ groups.” In 2000, new ADC President Hussein Ibish characterized Hezbollah as “a disciplined and responsible liberation force.” James Abourezk called Hamas and Hezbollah “resistance fighters.”

But the good news here is….

The Arab groups offered Obama specific policy recommendations regarding the Israel-Palestine peace process.

What could these ideas possibly consist of?

The ADC delivered a memo to Obama with some proposals…

1- Palestinian Unity: Achieving unity among Palestinians will help reach a lasting peace in the Middle East. ADC urges you to
play a constructive role in this regard, and remove obstacles delaying the achievement of Palestinian unity

“Unity” in this case means uniting Hamas and Fatah in a single government. The ADC deceptively fails to state this openly.

The obstacles that Obama could conceivably remove would involve barriers to US aid going to Hamas and US disapproval of Hamas.

So item 1 calls for the United States to push Abbas to let Hamas in reversing Bush Administration policy.

2- US Aid to Israel: ADC is deeply concerned about allegations of torturing 30-year-old Palestinian prisoner Arafat Jaradat to death in Israeli prison last month

Arafat Jaradat was a member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, a murderous Fatah terrorist group on the US Foreign Terrorist List, who was apparently killed by other prisoners.

MPAC does not have a similar memo up, but its dishonest “Envisioning Peace” pamphlet endorses “The Right of Resistance” and endorses a Hamas government.

In 2006, the Palestinians successfully completed the most free, fair and transparent elections in the Middle East.  Israel and the U.S. responded to this democratic election by immediately refusing to negotiate with the elected government and shortly thereafter began a policy of punishing the Palestinian people for having elected the people of their choice.

This collective punishment came in the form of cutting off aid and depriving people of wages and desperately needed humanitarian aid. If the United States was able to deal with the Communist regime of the former Soviet Union for over 50 years, then the U.S. should be able to deal with any democratically elected government in the world.

Like the ADC, MPAC does not use the name “Hamas”, but endorses Hamas and urges Obama to make a deal with Hamas. These are undoubtedly the suggestions that MPAC relayed to Hamas.

So before going to Israel, Obama met with two pro-Hamas and anti-Israel groups.

    Why in heavens name is anyone expecting the Islamist-in-Chief not to meet, as well as heart, with kindred spirits? In fact, he has shown his fealty all along, as well as his visceral hatred for Israel, and by extension all Jews.

    Is there any doubt left, exactly where his alliances run?

    So Pro Hamas groups are clearly working with Obama. And Karzai received backlash for claiming what Hillary Clinton claimed 2 years ago, that the Obama Administration is negotiating with the Taliban. And we have seen him meet with the Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt. We watched him commision airstrikes on al Qaeda fighting Ghaddifi. There is a Midrasa in Kenya with his name on it, a lot of his family are devout Muslims, his father and step father were Muslims. His so-called Christian Pastor was a former member of the Nation of Islam. An Egyptian Magazine claimed the Muslim Brotherhood were working in his administration.

    But nah, nothing to see here.

    - CAIR Founded By Terrorists –
    "We Know The Founders Of CAIR Are HAMAS Operatives"

    CAIR Has Been Identified By The Government At Trial As A Participant In An Ongoing And Ultimately Unlawful Conspiracy To Support A Designated Terrorist Organization, A Conspiracy From Which CAIR Never Withdrew.

    Pretty soon the thug in chief will have the bodies of arafat and hitler exhumed so he can get close to those monsters too.

    "In 2006, the Palestinians successfully completed the most free, fair and transparent elections in the Middle East." Comedy gold! Would these have been the elections that put Abbas in his current 7th year of a 4 year term?

  • BLJ

    This is about as big of surprise as Farrakhan calling white people "devils". Of course the Muslim Marxist would meet with his pals before making this trip. Obama is a blight on mankind.

    Let me go supernatural on you for a moment.Why this is happening, and we seem powerless to do anything about it . Lucifer is the prince of lies. "What puzzles you is the nature of mygame."(Jagger).Lies to yourself (liberals). Lie to the people. Islam is and has always been a Satanic murder cult – obvious from its commands in the Koran followed by its adherents’ carrying out the evil murderous deeds. One of its main ploys is to offer reasonable sounding lies to get useful idiots (example: "Islam is the religion of peace" (GW Bush) followed by Bush overthrowing the secular Saddam- the best that can be hoped for in islamland-a dictator) ( Recruit traitors and morons to ease its takeover, like Obama, Reid, Hagel, Kerry, Brennan, Hillary). This is to get us to let our guard down. It's working well throughout the non Islamic world as jihad speeds up and demographics guarantee Islam’s control in the dying(corruption,contraception, sodomy, abortion, debilitating socialism, etc) formerly Judaeo-Christian world. Rape, murder, bombings, church burnings, home burnings – just another jihad day.

    A $1.35 million libel suit filed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) against Andrew Whitehead of Anti-CAIR (ACAIR), who called CAIR a “terrorist front organization,” that was “founded by Hamas supporters,” and was working to “make radical Islam the dominant religion in the United States,” has been dismissed with prejudice. According to ACAIR’s Mr. Whitehead, who posts at http://www.anti-cair-net.org, “I am pleased to report the CAIR lawsuit has been dismissed after the parties reached a mutually agreeable settlement.”
    Terms of the settlement are confidential. However, no apology was issued, no retraction or corrections made, and the statements that triggered CAIR’s suit remain on the ACAIR website.

    CAIR’s suit was filed on March 31, 2004 after Mr. Whitehead posted the following statements:

    “Let there be no doubt that CAIR is a terrorist supporting front organization that is partially funded by terrorists, and that CAIR wishes nothing more than the implementation of Sharia law in America.”

    CAIR is an “organization founded by Hamas supporters which seeks to overthrow Constitutional government in the United States and replace it with an Islamist theocracy using our own Constitution as protection.”

    “ACAIR reminds our readers that CAIR was started by Hamas members and is supported by terrorist supporting individuals, groups and countries.”

    “Why oppose CAIR? CAIR has proven links to, and was founded by, Islamic terrorists. CAIR is not in the United States to promote the civil rights of Muslims. CAIR is here to make radical Islam the dominant religion in the United States and convert our country into an Islamic theocracy along the lines of Iran. In addition, CAIR has managed, through the adroit manipulation of the popular media, to present itself as the ‘moderate' face of Islam in the United States. CAIR succeeded to the point that the majority of its members are not aware that CAIR actively supports terrorists and terrorist supporting groups and nations. In addition, CAIR receives direct funding from Islamic terrorists supporting countries.”

    “CAIR is a fundamentalist organization dedicated to the overthrow of the United States Constitution and the installation of an Islamic theocracy in America.”

    CAIR claimed these statements were false, that Mr. Whitehead made them “with knowledge of their falsity,” and that the statements were actionable because “they impute the commission of a criminal offense.” CAIR claimed injury to its “standing and reputation throughout the United States and elsewhere,” and sought $1 million in compensatory damages, $350,000 in punitive damages, plus legal fees and interest.

    On June 20, 2005, and following submission of discovery requests by Mr. Whitehead’s counsel, Reed D. Rubinstein of Greenberg Traurig LLP’s Washington, D.C. office, seeking information regarding CAIR’s finances, its relationship to Hamas, and its ties to Saudi Arabia and other Islamic radicals, CAIR dropped nearly all of its original claims. The revised complaint alleged only the following statements to be false and defamatory:

    “Let their (sic) be no doubt that CAIR is a terrorist supporting front organization….”

    “[CAIR] seeks to overthrow constitutional government in the United States….”

    Subsequently, Mr. Whitehead’s counsel filed papers demonstrating the extensive links between, and actions taken by, CAIR and its principal leaders with and on behalf of Hamas terrorists, foreign Islamic radicals, and domestic Islamic extremists. Among other things, the pleadings showed how CAIR had used its website to exploit the 9/11 atrocities, funneling money to the notorious Hamas front group the “Holy Land Foundation” (HLF). HLF, organized and operated by a CAIR-Austin, Texas board member who was a close and long-time associate of CAIR’s executive officers, financed Hamas, and was shut down by the United States government in December, 2001. HLF was also shown to have provided funds to CAIR.

    Shortly after Mr. Whitehead’s counsel filed these papers, and shortly before a court hearing on Mr. Whitehead’s request for access to CAIR’s financial data and relationship with Hamas and Islamic radicals was to be held, the case was settled and dismissed with prejudice.

      Great report, JP.

      " and sought $1 million in compensatory damages, $350,000 in punitive damages, plus legal fees and interest….. Interest, eh? How un-islamic of them.

        CAIR'll use every devious and subversive method they can to help sink our country. Bar none!

    Hammas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad etc., all Obama constituents, he is and Islamist promoter
    and anti-Israel, Americans have voted into the Office of President a person who is antithetically
    positioned in his person to freedom and our values. As Obama goes about doing the will of
    the elites to destroy America and it's freedoms in order for the UN to build it's one world
    government, we sit idly by and take it all in. I wonder when there will be and active reaction.
    What do I have to do with Islam or Communism, they are against all I hold true and of value,
    my life and wellbeing is betrayed by our miserable tratiorous government full of leftist
    subversives. A pox on them all…………………………William

    Well, I have news for you concerning that little Hamas emblem thingy on your sign. You see, Obambam really believes that people shouldn't be able to own guns. You might want to re-think your silly little endorsement there goat boys.
