It’s bad enough that the State Department issued a two-year visa to Northewst Flight 253 terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, and then Hillary Clinton failed to revoke it when his father told officials in her (and our) embassy in Nigeria that his son was a terrorist. Hillary got away with that. And Barack Obama took little, if any, blame.
Hillary Admits Muslim Brotherhood Grandson, Tariq Ramadan
Now he and Hillary are lifting the ban on extremist Muslim “scholars” who openly support and endorse Islamic terrorism, including Tariq Ramadan, whose grandfather, Hassan El-Banna, founded the Muslim Brotherhood (the mother organization to HAMAS, Yasser Arafat, Al-Qaeda, and Al-Qaeda mastermind Ayman Al-Zawahiri). This is the group that masterminded the assassination of Anwar Sadat and the shooting murders of tourists in the massacre at the Temples at Luxor. Ramadan is an open supporter of HAMAS–to which he donated $1,336–and other Islamic terrorist groups. Plus, Ramadan worked for Iran!
Hellooooo . . . ? Did they learn NOTHING from Abdulmutallab’s near-murder of 300 American passengers over U.S. soil? Yes, apparently they did learn nothing. Un-frickin’-believable:
The State Department has cleared the way for two prominent but controversial scholars to return to the United States.
State Department spokesman Darby Holladay said Wednesday that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has signed orders enabling the scholars’ entry if they obtain visas.
The professors are Tariq Ramadan of Oxford University and Adam Habib of the University of Johannesburg.
Holladay said Clinton decided to use her exemption authority for the benefit of the professors.
“For the benefit of the professors”? What about the benefit of America’s national security? Did she bother to think of that, after she already screwed up monumentally in the case of Abdulmutallab? The government said, previously, that Habib “engaged in terrorist activity.”
The American Civil Liberties Union said it expects the scholars will now get visas within weeks of requesting them.
In an ACLU statement, Habib called it a personal victory and also a victory “for democracy around the world.”
Figures they’re involved. Keep in mind that Hillary didn’t make this decision on her own. This is a joint Obama-Clinton venture into DumbAssity (a word I coined and which fits like a glove here and, sadly, so many other instances in this administration). It’s a “gesture” (as if we need more of them) of “outreach” to the extremist Muslim world. Disgusting.
In August, a Dutch university, Erasmus University, fired Ramadan over his extremism and his work for the Islamic Republic of Iran. Why didn’t we get the hint from the Dutch? The Wall Street Journal got it right:
We’d certainly agree that working for the Islamic Republic doesn’t become a supposedly moderate “integration adviser” who was tasked with bridging the divide between Rotterdam’s Muslim and non-Muslim communities. . . .
Mr. Ramadan . . . likes to talk about democracy and following the rule of law—but only as long as the law doesn’t contradict an Islamic principle. He rejects terrorism and violence but thinks that blowing up eight-year-old Israeli children is “contextually explicable.” He supposedly stands for a modern Islam, but he refused to reject the stoning of adulterers when then-interior minister and future French President Nicolas Sarkozy challenged him on the subject in a 2003 TV debate. All Mr. Ramadan could bring himself to say was to call for a “moratorium” on the practice.
Yeah, we really need more of that poison in America. The cancer continues. If Ramadan is a “religious scholar,” so is Charles Manson, and he should be released from prison immediately.
This isn’t just DumbAssity. It’s Super Double Secret Probation DumbAssity. America . . . Desperate But Not Serious in the War Against Islamic Extremism and Terrorism.
