Another Obama Muslim Outreach Director meets with terrorist supporters
The Obama campaign Muslim outreach director, Minha Husaini, met with the Council of American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim
American Society, groups linked with terror groups the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas. This is the second outreach director in a row who seems to have no ethical or moral problem in touching base with groups that support terror.
Obama Mideast advisor Robert Malley met with Hamas (and was forced to resign - for now). He has been going to Syria of late (Syrian Banking on Obama Victory, Invites Advisors), as has Zbigniew Brzezinski - another foreign policy expert linked to Barack Obama.
Anyone seeing a pattern here? Anyone seeing the future foreign policy principles laid down?
From the Wall Street Journal:
Minha Husaini, newly named as head of the campaign's outreach coordinator to Muslims, attended a discussion session Sept. 15 with about 30 Muslim leaders and community members in suburban Washington, the Obama campaign confirmed. Participants included leaders of the Council of American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim American Society, which have been cited by the government in the
past for ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.
In August, the campaign's previous coordinator, Mazen Asbahi, resigned over a similar issue, pointing up one kind of challenge facing the campaign: pursuing the votes of the Muslim community while not perpetuating any misunderstandings about Sen. Barack Obama's religion. Sen. Obama is a Christian.
Mr. Asbahi, who also attended the meeting now entangling Ms. Husaini, resigned after questions arose about his brief tenure on the board of an Islamic investment fund along with a controversial Illinois imam. At the time, campaign officials said he was stepping down because he didn't want to become a distraction for the campaign.
Thursday, campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt, responding to questions about the September session in Springfield, Va., said Ms. Husaini wouldn't have attended had she known that Council of American-Islamic Relations and Muslim American Society leaders were going to be there.
This is hardly believable considering that Obama foreign policy advisors have had such problematic opinions on Israel and Muslim terrorsts in the past.
