President Obama's aide made the keynote address at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) national convention. "…Senior Adviser for Public Engagement and International Affairs Valerie Jarrett noted she was the first White House official to address ISNA. She spoke in general terms about interfaith dialog and cooperation. She praised her hosts for 'the diversity of American organizations, and ideas that are represented and will be debated' at the convention."
"And she openly invited ISNA President Ingrid Mattson to work on the White House Council on Women and Girls that Jarrett leads."
What kind of an organization is ISNA, that drew Jarrett? "ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-support conspiracy." It was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood in America, with home it retains close ties.
In a highlighted "'meet the author' program, Imam Warith Deen Umar, former head N.Y. state prison chaplain managed to:
• Argue that key Obama aides are 'Israeli,' proving Jews 'have control of the world.'
• Malign the motives of Jews active in the Civil Rights movement.
• Portray the Holocaust as punishment of Jews for being 'serially disobedient to Allah.'
• Insinuate that Hurricane Katrina was a result of tolerance for homosexuality"
The imam was dismissed for having praised 9/11, which he claims most Muslims secretly admire. In 2004, he urged violent jihad. His full quotes are ravings.
Cathy Sultan, author of a book on the 2006 war in Lebanon, blamed Israel for Lebanon's troubles, but not: recent Syrian occupation of Lebanon, Iranian arming of Hizbullah, and Hizbullah initiating the war by firing rockets and raiding and killing at an Israeli base. The U.S. declared Hizbullah a terrorist organization.
Compare what those authors said in the presence of a White House official, with what Obama said in Cairo: "'Threatening Israel with destruction - or repeating vile stereotypes about Jews - is deeply wrong' and a hindrance to peace." (Steven Emerson in Israel Resource Review, 7/30).
Apparently, the Obama administration is no wiser than the Bush administration, which also met with and invited in Radical Muslims.
