Obama Defends Plan for Mosque Near Ground Zero – ‘Friends of Terror’ Attend White House Ramadan Dinner

At Wall Street Journal (via Daily Caller):

WASHINGTON–President Barack Obama defended the plan to build a mosque near the site of the 2001 terror attacks in New York, telling Muslim guests at a Ramadan dinner at the White House that the nation’s commitment to freedom of religion “must be unshakable.”

RTWT.

The White House has been wary of entering this debate, and I can’t see how this is going to help Obama politically. Emotions are just too raw. It would take time, but folks might want to go down the list of those attending the Ramadan dinner and figure out how much support Obama’s got in the Islamist jihad community. I mean seriously. The very first name I checked (with no prior familiarity) is Ms. Dalia Mogahed, who is Director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies. But as Jihad Watch points out, “Obama’s Muslim adviser Dalia Mogahed ‘is herself an Islamic ideologue who supports Islamic Sharia’.” And the link there is to Nonie Darwish, “Appeasing the Muslim Brotherhood.” Also, checking another name, Mr. Salam Al Marayati of Muslim Public Affairs Council, it turns out that Al Marayati and his group are “Friends of Terror.” That piece links to “Marayati Suggested Israel Carried Out 9/11 Attacks,” which reads:

Salam Al-Marayati, head of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), which has praised the Hezbollah terrorist group –which is on the U.S. terrorist list– and publicly called for Israel’s destruction, has been invited to deliver a lecture at the State Department’s “Secretary’s Open Forum” on January 28, 2002.

Ironically, Marayati is scheduled to speak on “Rising Voices of Moderate Muslims”–even though his voice is the voice of a Muslim extremist, and his disgraceful attempt to blame Israel for the September 11 attacks was a bizarre effort to divert attention from the real perpetrators of these heinous acts, who were all Muslim extremists.

Well there you go, and that’s just a couple of those in attendance at the White House Iftar dinner on Ramadan. And check Pamela’s post, “Obama Backs 911 Ground Zero Mega Mosque at Ramadan Celebration“:

Obama came out for the Islamic supremacist mosque at the hallowed ground of 911 attack. He has, in effect, sided with the Islamic jihadists and told the ummah (at an Iftar dinner on the third night of Ramadan, of course) that he believes in and supports a triumphal mosque on the cherished site of Islamic conquest.

If you had any doubt who Obama stood with on 911, there can be no doubt in our minds now.

Warner Todd Huston offers an analysis of the speech. But by now the lid’s totally blown off the scam. The administration has turned its back on defending this country from Islamic jihad.
