Obama Invites Islamists With Terror Ties to Farcical Summit on Countering Violent Extremism

This may offer some insight into why Obama clearly doesn’t have his heart in the struggle against the Islamic State:

A Boston-based hub of terrorism associated with a top Islamic State propagandist and producer of hostage-beheading videos will receive the red carpet treatment at an anti-terrorism conference at the Obama White House this Wednesday.

The farcical dog and pony show is entitled the Summit on Countering Violent Extremism. A more apt title would be Summit on Pandering to Expansionist Islam While Pretending to Do Something About Muslim Terrorism.

The terrorist-friendly Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), which is a known front for Islamist terrorist groups, operates mosques in and around Boston.

There is no space here to detail all the ties between ISB and terrorism. A few examples:

Social media guru Ahmad Abousamra, who is now the chief propagandist for the Islamic State, used to regularly worship at ISB’s Cambridge mosque. His father was a member of the board of directors of ISB. The FBI suspects Abousamra is in charge of Islamic State’s slick English-language propaganda campaign that produces videos of beheadings and various atrocities. The campaign has succeeded in recruiting at least 300 American jihadists and thousands of volunteers from other Western nations. …

ISB was founded by Hamas and Hezbollah supporter Abdurahman Alamoudi, who in 2004 was sentenced to 23 years in prison on terrorism-related charges. ISB’s Cambridge mosque is run by the Muslim American Society, which federal prosecutors say is a front for the Muslim Brotherhood. …

Boston marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev worshiped at ISB’s Cambridge mosque, as did Tarek Mehanna. Mehanna received terrorist training in Yemen and intended to use automatic weapons to inflict mass casualties in a suburban shopping mall near Boston. In 2012 Mahenna received a 17-year prison term for conspiring to aid al-Qaeda. Oussama Ziade, a benefactor of the Boston mosque, was indicted in 2009 for accepting money from al-Qaeda fundraiser Yassin Kadi.

Obama extending a hand of friendship to hardcore Islamists who are fundamentally hostile to Western Civilization will come as no surprise to anyone following his Middle East policy.

Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood regime of Mohamed Morsi in Egypt and overthrew Muammar Qaddafi in Libya which paved the way for the Islamist takeover of that country. Obama refused to support a popular uprising against the theocratic totalitarians of Iran and allowed the opposition to be crushed by the mullahs.

Meanwhile, Islamic State maniacs just beheaded 21 people for being Christian in Libya, where they are allowed to run amok thanks in part to Obama’s unlawful intervention. They have made it clear they will come after America, and in stark contrast to Obama, they mean what they say.

This absurd summit is the equivalent of sitting down with Japanese admirals to discuss violent extremism in the wake of Pearl Harbor.
