In 2014, Abdullah Hasan was a recipient of the CAIR-SFBA Islamic Scholarship Fund. He went on to defend BDS for the ACLU. Now he’s an assistant press secretary at the White House.
CAIR is an Islamist organization that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in one of the largest terror financing trials in America. Its founders were linked to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, and it has opposed efforts to protect the United States against Islamic terrorism.
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant,” CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad had declared.
When Hasan received his scholarship in 2014-2015, the Islamic Scholarship Fund’s board members included Hatem Bazian, one of the country’s most notorious Islamic bigots, the co-founder of Students for Justice in Palestine, and an alleged supporter of Hamas, who has spent decades trafficking in antisemitism.
Hasan’s fellow CAIR-SFBA recipients included Salmah Rizvi, a former fellow at Al-Haq, a BDS group listed by Israel as a terrorist organization over its connections to the PFLP. Al-Haq’s general director is allegedly a key terrorist leader in the PFLP. Despite this background, Rizvi got an intelligence position in the Obama administration and produced materials that went into the President’s Daily Brief. After leaving the administration, she bailed out her best friend,
Urooj Rahman, who had been accused of throwing molotov cocktails at a police car.
After conducting research around “primary Islamic texts and within a post-9/11 surveillance culture”, Hasan went into activism, opposing anti-BDS measures on behalf of the ACLU.
In an op-ed co-written by Hasan, he defended “lawful boycotts of Israel” and claimed that opposition to BDS was a “loyalty test”.
In 2019, Hasan ranted that, “Islamophobia is rampant even in our highest democratic institutions” like the Supreme Court.
Now he represents the Biden administration as one of its press secretaries.
Abdullah Hasan is one of a record number of over 100 Muslim staffers in the Biden administration. The growth has been especially astonishing considering that MOSAIC, an association of Muslim federal employees, could only gather 110 personnel for its second Iftar in 2016 and there are now almost as many aligned Muslims within the administration.
Kamala Harris commemorated Ramadan by posing with most of them on the steps of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building and described them as “our administration’s incredible Muslim team.”
Biden’s incredible Muslim team includes men and women whom we have already profiled like Maher Bitar, a former executive board member of Hatem Bazian’s Students for Justice in Palestine and anti-Israel BDS activist who became Biden’s Senior Director for Intelligence on the National Security Council, Reema Dodin, Biden’s first “Palestinian” staffer who had defended suicide bombings, and Mazen Basrawi, Biden’s new Muslim liaison, who attended a conference honoring one of the unindicted co-conspirators of the World Trade Center bombing,
But there are many others who have not been fully investigated or profiled.
They include Aya Ibrahim, who started out as a legislative fellow to Rep. Rashida Tlaib, one of the most vocal terrorist supporters in Congress, and then a legislative assistant and adviser to fellow Squad member Rep. Ayanna Pressley. Biden took her on and brought her into the National Economic Council and then elevated her to a senior adviser in the White House Office of Technology and Policy only six years after she had graduated with a BA in Political Science.
Sameera Fazili briefly served as Deputy Director of the National Economic Council in the Biden Administration. At Harvard, she had served as president of the Harvard Islamic Society the year that it had conducted a fundraising dinner for the Holy Land Foundation: a Hamas front group.
(The event, part of the Harvard Islamic Society’s Islamic Awareness Week was co-chaired by Faiz Shakir who went on to become a top adviser to Senator Harry Reid, worked for Nancy Pelosi and became Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager.)
At Harvard, Fazili had assailed counterterrorism expert Steve Emerson.
Fazili had a past with Karamah: Muslim Women for Human Rights which claims that “Islamic jurisprudence is the source of the knowledge base essential to the promotion of the rights of Muslim women”. The organization has defended Sharia law.
According to the Middle East Forum’s Islamist Watch, Fazili was a leading member of Stand With Kashmir: “best known for praising and defending violent Islamists in South Asia.” Her organization had called for the release of Islamic terrorists including supporters of Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda.
Uzra Zeya started out as a staffer at the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs: an informal arm of the Arab Lobby started by former diplomats to Muslim countries. While there Zeya helped compile material for a book claiming that Jews secretly control the United States. Biden chose Zeya as his undersecretary for civilian security, democracy and human rights.
After the Muslim Brotherhood was overthrown, Zeya complained that “there are activists — including some in Egypt — who face criminal charges and intimidation for the peaceful exercise of their rights.”
Salman Ahmed, a former UN Peacekeeping official, was picked by Biden to oversee his transition team’s national security and foreign policy review before taking over at the Director of the Secretary of State’s Policy Planning Staff. When Biden allowed the Taliban to take Kabul, Ahmed was sent to negotiate with the Taliban in Qatar.
Rashad Hussain, Biden’s “ambassador for religious freedom”, who has a degree in Islamic Studies and had memorized the Koran, had been Obama’s envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. During his time working for Obama, he had been caught lying about his past defense of an Islamic terrorist. Hussain had appeared at events with Muslim Brotherhood leaders. His wife, Isra Bhatty, became famous volunteering as a translator for Islamic terrorists in Gitmo before moving on to a senior position at the Justice Department.
Even after Hussain’s appointment, he appeared at an Islamic Society of North America convention whose speakers had “promoted anti-Hindu rhetoric, called for the release of convicted terror supporters and for the establishment of a caliphate.” “One activist who spoke at the convention called convicted Hamas terror supporters, ‘the finest men.'”
Brenda Abdelall, the daughter of Egyptian immigrants, had participated in anti-Israel BDS protests in college. In a newspaper op-ed in 2002, she had falsely accused Israel of “ethnic cleansing” as part of a “brutal occupation”.
“We cannot let the entire population of Palestinians suffer any longer, nor can we let the entire population of Chechens suffer either,” the Muslim activist had insisted.
Abdelall went on to work for the ACLU and then Muslim Advocates: a group working to stop America from fighting against Islamic terrorism. She taught a course at the University of Michigan Law School on ‘Islamophobia and the Law’. joined “Arab Americans for Biden” and was rewarded with a position at the Department of Homeland Security as “assistant secretary for partnership and engagement”.
Even after this appointment, Abdelall appeared at the same convention as Hussain where speakers had called for a caliphate ruled by Islamic law and freeing Islamic terrorists..
This is a snapshot of not all, but some of the President’s Islamists. As the number of Islamic staffers in the administration continues to grow, it becomes difficult to keep track of more than a few of them. What was once ‘entryism’ has become a hijacking. And yet what we do see is troubling. Despite the denials, looking into the backgrounds of some of Biden’s more than 100 Islamic staffers, it doesn’t take much to turn up support for terrorists, hostility to America and Israel, and associations with the Muslim Brotherhood and its front groups.
The Biden administration is not, as some call it, “soft on terror”; it’s a Trojan horse of terror.

Fire them all on day one if a conservative is elected, take away their citizenship, residency permits, etc.

Carlos Murthy says
Since you are all islamophobes and bigots, no Muslim should have the same right as everybody else in America.
They should have the same rights as any mafioso or ms13 gang banger.
Sword of the Spirit says
And you think calling us islamophobes and bigots will cause us to feel shame and change out minds?
This all came about when the leaders of Islam allowed Islam’s adherents to migrate to Western nations. They saw the opportunity to infiltrate, influence and eventually dominate by the sheer number of Muslims and their tendency to out-breed Westerners. The evil tentacles of Islam are strangling western nations slowly but surely. Once they have the numbers they will turn on the nations that accepted them and take over.
Yep. That’s part of their doctrine. Just ask anyone in Sweden or Switzerland where they are being overrun by a Muslim infestation demanded by the EU. They have no desire to assimilate, only to use up western “free” social services.
The muslims were invited by western leaders, given free housing and benefits, I remember the 1970s in London. Still are. The west has allowed this as part of their desire for ‘revolution’. They use the muzz to control the native populations.
J.J. Sefton says
I noticed a seeing eye dog in the front of the group. Funny, considering Islam’s position on dogs. . . . and you know who else.
NPR will report that it was really a cat and not to believe your lying eyes.

This is proof beyond question that this administration has embraced the appeasement of Iranian based terror and thrown Israel under the bus

It makes sense. Jojo Cabbage Brain Biden likens himself to FDR, a disgusting animal best known for putting Americans into concentration camps and for sending Jews to Germany to be exterminated. It’s pretty much the Democrat playbook.
I believe even the Nazis were taken aback at some of the Democratic party’s actions regarding blacks even though they took a number of their ideas home to Germany.
What is happening with the J6 prisoners is Stalinist and just horrifying.
This is Obama spreading his tentacles in his 3rd term
Ugly Sid says
Know your enemy.
The shortest haircut I ever got was back in 2008 when the hairdresser said to me that she agreed with candidate Obama, that she, too, was ashamed to be an American. I asked her why she felt that way, but she didn’t elaborate.
So I said to her that I didn’t feel that way and, in fact, that Obama scared me with those words, which struck me as being so uncharacteristic of the American spirit and frame of mind. His thoughts seemed totally foreign, un-American to the core.
We kept talking as she kept snipping; and when I looked in the mirror, well, that was the end of the discussion.
Fast forward. Obama is in his third term and it looks like he’ll probably have a fourth; and I feel the same way.
It’s a nightmare.
It’s the satanic islamic way… and our American Government allowed satanic islam to attack American on 911…
911. produced the Fake War on Terror…
Which produced immigration under the guise of persecution… saturation and infiltration…
Now comes Domination… as we see in Pedo-Biden’s administration…
sumsrent – I never would have believed our own government
allowed Muslims to attack us on 9/11 but nowadays I’m not so
sure. The aim of the Globalists is to destroy western civilization,
including America to establish their totalitarian and digital one-
GW Bush began destroying America during the sub-prime
lending debacle – setting the country up for economic
disaster which B. Hussein could then blame for anything that
went wrong during the Obama administration. Obama
continued the wrecking process, including putting the U.S.
in more debt than that accumulated during all the combined
previous presidencies. Both Bush’s were part of the globalist
Trilateral Commission – as were most of Obama’s cabinet
appointees – and the Bush’s were tight friends with oil-drenched
Saudi Arabian royalty aka Islamic fanatics. Did GW Bush
actually facilitate the death of thousands of his own people
on 9/11? Based on the foregoing, one can only speculate.
As to the rest of your comment – I totally agree.
angel kasparov says
If muslims are 1% of the population there should be 1 muslim in every 100 staffers, according to democracy. And that is if their allegiance is to the US constitution first and foremost, not the genocidal pedophile from Arabia.

A Rouges Gallery of the worst of humanity Bidens Blunder Americas problem
More “why not the worst” from the Obiden maladministration. The idea that a Moslem has a position with “religious freedom” in its title is Orwellian. Ask Jews, Christians, Hindus, Ba’hais, animists, around the world how Islam views and treats other religions.
Justin Swingle says
i guess we can’t claim joe is the first islamic president given obama and the saudis. the obomb worked very hard to protect the interests of the sept 11 invaders but then they’ve compensated him well and probably paid for the building of his tower of ego in chicago.
Walter Sieruk says
Joe Biden inviting and hiring all those Muslim in his staff and administration many of who might in all probably prefer Sharia over the US Constitution and would even like to establish it in America as the law of the land. Those stealth jihadists and well as that President pretender Biden are a threat to the US Constitution and all the freedom that it ensures.
Related to this is that the former US President, Theodore Roosevelt, had well-spoken when he declared in a speech “There can be no fifty-fifty Americanism in this country. There is only room here for only hundred percent Americanism, only for those who are Americans and nothing else.”
Walter Sieruk says
Joe Biden must be willingly facilitating the Muslim scheme for achieving the goal of the Islamic agenda is as, many times, as subtly effective as it is demonically clever which is part of the stealth jihad to establish Islam and its Sharia as the enacted law of America.
Furthermore, this Islamic gradualism, in some ways, is very similar to the instruction printed in the book entitled THE ART OF WAR by Sun Tzu. Which reads, “At first, then, exhibit the coyness of a maiden, until the enemy gives you an opening; afterwards emulate the rapidity of a running hare, and it will be too late for the enemy to opposes you”
Peter Arnone says
Today is Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day. Anyone who refers to Islam as a religion of peace either lives on anther planet, or takes his marching orders from the father of all lies.
Just remember that, sooner or later mecca and medina will have to be glassed.
Islam. This is why women are being cancelled in America, make no mistake.
