New Extremist Foxes Welcomed into U.S. Chicken Coop

Reprinted from GatestoneInstitute.org.

Say hello again to two of the most over-promoted and sinister figures involved with the current U.S. government: Mohamed Elibiary and Dalia Mogahed. If you were one of those Christian Copts standing in the ruins of your village or church, what message would you take from all this?

Imagine that in recent weeks alone, dozens of Muslims around the world had been murdered by Christian extremists armed with suicide belts and similar paraphernalia.

Imagine that at the same time, around other parts of the world, Christian mobs had set fire to, and burned to the ground, the holy places of some of the oldest and most established Muslim communities in the world.

Do you think there would be a reaction to such events? Probably yes.

Would that reaction be wholly negative and unceasing in its condemnation? Probably yes.

Would it be remotely conceivable that a senior U.S. government official or advisor would have used the opportunity to claim that Muslims who had been targeted had brought it upon themselves? Probably no.

Welcome then to the mirror-image of the real-world persecution of Christians that is going on across the globe today.

And say hello again to two of the most appallingly over-promoted and sinister figures involved with the current U.S. government: Mohamed Elibiary and Dalia Mogahed.

Of course, you may not want to: as the terror goes on worldwide, and the situation around the globe slips continuously in the Islamists’ general direction, there is a growing and terrific ennui among much of the West. Among much of the Western world, terrorists’ marauding is another case of, “Oh, just that Islamism again.” You say a person is not good? Well, we can’t be bothered to find out. The very condition that so few people can raise themselves to be bothered is part of the problem: “The trouble with all the nice people I knew in Germany,” the British author Stephen Spender wrote in his Berlin diary in the 1930s, “is that they were either tired or weak.”

Thankfully there are a number of people who can still rouse themselves to point out how outrageous Western governments’ hiring policies are these days as when Mohamed Elibiary was promoted to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Council. Yet despite these heroic individuals pointing out Elibiary’s track record of support for Islamists worldwide, the appointment held — and so it was that the U.S. government welcomed another fox into its chicken coop.

Now an American official can not only fail to stand by America’s friends – he can actually blame them for the persecution they are suffering.

Over recent days, one of the effects of this has already been felt: in September, when violence against Egypt’s Copts had reached another peak, the new Department of Homeland Security Homeland Security Advisor, Elibiary, used his twitter account to blame American Coptic activists for the murder of their co-religionists by Muslim Brotherhood extremists of the type Elibiary has a track record of supporting.

On September 15, he wrote, “For decade since 9/11 attack extremist American Coptic activists have nurtured anti Islam and anti Muslim sentiments among AM RT wing.” A day earlier, Elibiary blamed American Copts for protesting against attacks on their relatives in Egypt, and recommended an article “on need to reform #Coptic activism in #US including stop promoting #Islamophobia.”

So while Copts were actually being targeted and killed in Egypt, Mr. Elbiary chose to try to switch attention onto the fictional persecution of Muslims in the U.S. There is nothing quite like someone excusing one crime-in-progress by citing a non-existent other crime — except for, of course, a U.S. government official doing the same.

Unfortunately, thanks to our enthusiastic, politically-correct attitudes and radical Islamist ideologies, Elibiary is not alone in the U.S. administration.

It was Dalia Mogahed, you will recall, who helped President Obama draft the 2009 Cairo Speech — a “reset” speech, regarded as seminal across several rooms in the White House. It was Mogahed who helped draft the address which apologized for America’s past actions while giving the benefit of the doubt to most of its self-stated enemies.

Mogahed is not only one of the geniuses credited with that speech; her record also includes other glowing occasions. Such as the time, that same year, in which she cropped up on a U.K. television program, which aired on the most notorious satellite Islamist channel. Mogahed took part in a discussion about the empowerment of women through Sharia. She participated, seemingly happily, in the program hosted — and introduced as such — by a member of the radical Islamist group Hizb-ut-Tahrir. Mogahed also seemed unfazed when, for instance, passionate fellow participants called for the restoration of the Caliphate (a key pipedream of Hizb-ut-Tahrir).

Incidents like that have been used against her. But these things have a tendency to come and go. A little flare-up of bad publicity here, the rebuttal of legitimate concerns and an accusation of “Islamophobia” there — it is all part of the mood-music.

Dalia Mogahed’s latest popping-up however, makes all her previous ones not only explicable but mild:

After 80 Coptic churches had been burned down by Brotherhood supporters, Ms. Mogahed decided to single out for criticism not the perpetrators but — the Egyptian media! “The Egyptian media took advantage of the Copts to achieve many personal/political gains which has angered the West,” she wrote on one of the Facebook pages to which she spends her time contributing: “Egyptian Americans for Democracy and Human Rights.” All of which adds up to one of the strangest sets of messages any American government has surely ever given out.

If you were one of those Christian Copts standing in the ruins of your village or church, what message would you take from all this? If the officials of the current U.S. administration are managing to blame the media, or even fellow Copts in the U.S., for your slaughter and the desecration of your churches, would it be any surprise if they took the message that the current U.S. administration is not just indifferent to the suffering of Christians across the Middle East and the rest of the world, but actively asking them, “Would you mind dying quietly, please?’

    Great reading. And you indeed expose this creepy woman Dalia Holy Fighter for what she is a hate monger and a liar

    Oh Holy Fighter? This is Dalia’s last name as the word Mogahed really means holy fighter

    As I told Daniel more likely than not Dalia’s ancestors as well as the ancestors of the other creep Mohamed Elibiary were Copts that converted to the religion of the Arabs only so both must be Copto-phobes and self haters

    So the real question is why would our government employ such creeps? I wonder

  • N. Wasse

    Hi Douglas: I urge you to spend a few minutes reading the creepy Mohamed Elibiary’s tweets. He is illiterate.

    Does this really surprise anyone?

    Islam and Christianity are made for each other: the sword of Islam (“submission”) is the instrument to prove Christian “love” for the enemy; the Muslim suicide bomber effectuates Christian self-sacrifice and suffering. Both Jihadi and his victim go to God. In the great scheme of things, everybody wins.
    Obama, not by chance, understands this perfectly. Democrat/leftist foreign policy is secular Christianity, the morality without God. The post-national humbling and impoverishing of America brings the nation in line with Christian and islamic norms. The Islamic “enemy” is our beloved friend. He believes in our subjugation as much as we ought to believe in it. Muslims in government are necessary to remind America of its moral duty to dwell in a humble place, forgive trespasses, exercise compassion, welcome suffering – in short, to feel good about itself as underdog. It’s a tough job, training underdogs (liberty still tempts many), but the faithful are up to it. It is their religious duty, though a fee will be be accepted, as dogs are so filthy.

      The Bible tells us that the day would come when, “those that kill you will think they do God a favor”. Your story makes about as much sense as saying Sirhan Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy were made for each other

      • C. Gee

        Well, the Bible was right about that. That day has come, if it has not always been here.
        The sense – or otherwise – you make of my “story” is not something I have control over. Neither could the authors of the Bible over their stories.

        • herb benty

          God’s Spirit guided the writing of the Torah, Psalms and the Prophets, or Christian Old Testament. Are you equating your comments to Scripture, because if that’s the case, you need prayer. Jesus Christ, when asked by the Centurian what he needed to do said, ” be content with your wages”. He did not say, “quit the army”. Peter had a sword under his clothes that Jesus knew was there, used no doubt for protection as they traveled around. Our God is a God that wins wars….easily. Jesus Christ is not some pacifist hippie. WE are allowed to protect ourselves.

        Sirhan Sirhan, by the way, was raised a Christian, not a Muslim.

        • herb benty

          SIrhan Sirhan was a “palestinian”, if he was raised a Christian, the results were similar to Major Hassan.

    • TheOrdinaryMan

      The United States was founded as a Christian country, back in 1776; entirely in line with Christian norms. This event was not, by any stretch, “secular Christianity.”(and what-the-hell is that, anyway?) As proof, Islamic jihad introduced itself to America in 1785, when Barbary pirates, carrying out jihad, captured American merchant ships, and kidnapped our sailors, who became slaves of the Bey of Tripoli and the Dey of Algiers. These two Muslims, though not in our government, reminded us periodically of our moral duty to fight and defeat them, by demanding ever-increasing amounts of tribute from the Federal government, until their demands became so outrageous(to the tune of 1/7 of the entire Federal budget) that POTUS Thomas Jefferson had no choice but to declare war on Tripoli. The jihadists’ weren’t our friends in 1801, nor are they today. And Christian norms were NEVER equal to Islamic norms; nor are they today. Get used to it, Mr. Jihad.

        We don’t have any leaders like Jefferson anymore, then again he did own slaves.

        • Brucew56

          @defcon4 Until he didn’t.

        • TheOrdinaryMan

          He owned slaves; but he admitted a number of times that slavery was wrong. When was the last time a Muslim did that? Besides, did TJ’s owning slaves make the Barbary pirates right? Frederick C. Leiner, who’s written a book or two about the Barbary pirates, says that the American war with them made us re-examine our thinking on slavery, and gave the abolitionist movement a big push forward. (Remember, Islam still supports slavery)

      • C. Gee

        I do not equate Christianity with Islam. They are not the same. They are ideologically complementary. Yin and Yang. America’s muscular foreign policy of the eighteenth century against thieves was not a holy war between Christendom and Islam. The Christian “norm” – “resist not evil” – was not applied by the United States to the Barbary pirates, fortunately. In fact, I would say that Christian norms are death to a national polity and every nation of Christendom has had to disregard such norms in deed – if not in word – to perform their primary moral duty which is to survive against threats to life and property. Leftist liberal Democrat national policies reestablish Christian norms (“resist not evil, love thine enemy etc.) though not in the name of Divine salvation, but earthly utopia. By luck, or by its authors’ strategic and prophetic insight into God’s mysterious ways, Islam offers itself as the irresistible evil for the neo-Christian left not to resist. Win, win.

        • TheOrdinaryMan

          If by “ideologically complementary” you mean that the Christian idea of turning the other cheek complements Islamic compulsion to dominate other cultures; this is a false notion. We’re long past the time for turning the other cheek; as Islamic barbarism had reared its ugly head in many places both long ago and very recently. From the point of view of the Barbary pirates, their war against America was, in fact, a Holy war–against Christian America, as was explained to Thomas Jefferson by the Tripolitan ambassador to the French court. And yes, America did observe Christian norms towards the Barbary states–we paid tribute to Barbary for 16 years(protection money) before we declared war on them. I don’t understand the rest of your comment, except that God gave man free will to resist, thus its moral to do so.

        We were decidedly not founded as a Christian country. The Founders were Deists with a Christian education, but that’s not the same thing as an orthodox Christianity.

      …and the instrument to prove Christian love for their enemies is a .45 caliber pistol, with an 8-shot clip; carried to church services.

      NO DOUBT ABOUT HIS ROOTS AND HIS AFFILIATIONS TO ISLAM AND THE MB.. HE IS THE MOST ANTI AMERICAN ANTI DEMOCRATIC PRO SOCIALIST SHARIA POTUS THE USA WILL EVER HAVE. HE IS THE WORST PRESIDENT OF THE USA EVER AND NOTHING WILL BE THE SAME AGAIN . ALL PRIDE HAS BEEN SQUEEZED OUT AND AMERICA IS LEFT BUT A SHELL OF ITS FORMER ONCE GLORIOUS SELF.
      CARTER WAS A HINT OF THINGS TO COME BUT THIS IMAM NOW IN THE WHITE HOUSE( MOSQUE) WILL SEE THE CONVERSION TO SHARIA DURING HIS 8 LONG MISERABLE SICKENING AND PATHETIC YEARS IN OFFICE. I FORESAW THIS WHEN HE WAS ELECTED AND WAS LAUGHED AT. WHO IS LAUGHING NOW????

        Many of us saw this. . .and for one; was crying on the inside; and still am. For my children; and worse, for them; my Grandchildren, by the time they are grown. . .The totalitarian mindset; like trying to ‘grasp’ ‘evil’. . .is almost ‘inconceivable’; save that it is forever in our midst; and part of our forever, history; of course.

        Meantime; can only hope; pray. ..spread the word. . .support appropriate Leadership. . .and hope more – and harder.

      Active faith or not; yes; no question he is ‘Obama; the Muslim Hearted’. . .but then; his Father was Muslim; and ‘so the line goes’. . . The only thing after that; is his soul. And we do not yet have confirmation; that Obama has one. But his ‘heart’ – is close enough to have warned us all; by now.

    THERE IS NO HOPE FOR THE DEADBEAT WEST- ISLAM HAS CONQUERED AND THE WEST HAS CONCURRED!

    • defcon 4

      I’m inclined to agree w/you.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    First of all, since jihad is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims in one form or another, there is no such thing as Muslim extremists, i.e., Islamists. Second, why focus only on Obama’s gross incompetence, because the Republican are just as incompetent when it comes to Islam as Obama. For instance, it was GWB who appointed the stealth jihadists, Zalmay Khalilzad, Ambassador first to Afghanistan and then subsequently to Iraq, and he then proceeded to enshrine both countries’ respective constitutions with Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law. Thereby ensuring that both countries at the same time would inevitably end up being Islamic Sharia (totalitarian) states exactly like they are today.

    • catherineinpvb

      Bush’s deadly naivte. . .and yes; absolutely; his ignorance. Obama; OTOH. . .quite aware ‘Muslim savy’.l ‘sharia savy. . .’Brotherhood’ savy. . .and enemy acommodating. For reasons; of his own. . .no doubt.

        “There must be no future for those who slander the prophet of islam”

        “my muslim faith”

        • catherineinpvb

          Think he was pushed once or twice on Christianity. . .and our proof; is that he ‘did’ attend ex-Nation of Islam’; ‘the’ Reverend Wright’s’ establishment. . .a Church with a Christian name on the outside. ..but inside; Wright still spouting NOI dictums. . .including his favorites per topic; hate; racism; bigotry. . .

          . . .but hey; if it was good enough for Obama (and family); those Christian values, should be good enough for America; or so the logic went.

          Meantime; Obama shares that the ‘Muslim call to prayer; one of the prettiest sounds on earth”. Don’t know what kind of phone he has; but bet there is an ‘app’ that has just that, for Obama.

    • defcon 4

      “extremist islam”, “islamist”, you’re right it’s all PC bullshit. Because all muslimes still have the same strategy, just different tactics in achieving the same totalitarian ends, which is why they’re winning all over the world.

  • Father Dacius

    I don’t think Obama is a mohamadan. Neither do I think he is a committed Christian (Rev. Wright notwithstanding).What I do think is he is sympathetic to radical Islam, as it fits
    neatly into his narrative that all the world’s problems come from the activities of the capitalist west. Personally I think he is as agnostic as any Leninist that ever lived.
    His apology tour still remains as the prime evidence for this. And his statement that Islam has always been a part of American history can only be a reference to their activities as large scale brokers of African slaves.

  • kmdkmkv

    man you are all right islamics have penetrated deep into the political sphere and are controlling America’s policies from the inside we have already fallen. Obama shutdown congress to help the muslim brotherhood it all makes sense.

  • Dallas25305

    Off course. It’s not a mistake that President Barack Hussein Obama has filled his government with Islamo Fascist, black power Racist and Marxist. This is the future he has planned for the nation. If there is a nation left when he is finished with the destruction. Next project by Obozo , opening the borders to everyone he can get from the 3rd world to make sure the white people he hates are the minority as soon as possible. Job two , gun control, he doesn’t want white men having permits to carry if they are attacked by the black power racist gangs, those guns could pose a problem for the gang. Also in the case of home invasions. Which racial group is most likely to be in the home? Which racial group is most likely to be breaking in?? Obama does want that person in the home defending themselves. The lying, racist Chairman Barack Hussien Obama so predictable for anyone with the brains to watch.
