Yesterday, I gave you the exclusive scoop about Chicago-based Palestinian Muslim “activist” and terrorist-financier Hatem Abudayyeh, who was raided by the FBI and whose many anti-war activist friends were subpoenaed for information on money they gave to Abudayyeh and the PFLP, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, as well as its connection to FARC, the South American terrorist group. In my piece, I noted Abudayyeh’s many close Islamic terrorist relatives and that Abudayyeh and his organization (Arab American Action Network) get hundreds of thousands of dollars (actually, millions, if you add it up) in U. S. taxpayer funding. Well, now, the mainstream media and some of the mainstream conservative media have “caught up,” noting without credit to me (of course) that Abudayyeh gets a ton of tax funding. Chicago media are also reporting that Abudayyeh was using PFLP to fund HAMAS.
When federal officers raided his North Side home last week, along with residences in Minneapolis, they were looking for funding links between Abudayyeh and the radical Islamic group Hamas. . . .
Even as Abudayyeh is under investigation by a federal grand jury, city of Chicago records . . . show that his Arab American Action Network has received thousands of dollars in city grants: as much as $457,000 since 1998. According to city officials, the money was intended for an after-school program for high-risk students who struggle with English. . . .
In 2001, Abudayyeh and several others filed a lawsuit against the city, seeking the freedom to wear traditional Arab headwear during Michigan Avenue protests. The case was settled. Terms unknown.
Please. We know the terms. The terms were: they got what they wanted, their lawyers got well-paid, and they got money, too. That’s always how it works with these Muslim activists and our weak pandering politicians and public officials. ‘Cuz ya know it ain’t no security hazard to have a bunch of open supporters of Islamic terrorism marching down the streets with their faces completely covered by keffiyeh’s, right? For security reasons, the only headwear we need regulate is the real, seldom-used Klan hood, not the Muslim version. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
Maybe conservatives don’t want to admit that Abudayyeh got a ton of money from the Bush administration, a policy which the Obamaniks are simply continuing. Hey, if the “national security/counterterrorism Prez” can do it, why not Obama? Sorry, but I don’t miss Bush yet. And if you do, see a doctor.
Your tax dollars at work. Your money essentially laundered through him to HAMAS, in the guise of English tutoring for illiterate Muslim illegal alien kiddies. Some tutoring probably took place, but as we all know, money is a fungible good, and these grants allowed him to use more money that he, himself, raised for HAMAS via PFLP and FARC.
So, how long until Abudayyeh is indicted . . . assuming the feds have the guts, and that’s a big assumption. They did nothing against this guy I’ve been complaining about since before 9/11. Don’t look for fast action now.
But if they do act, it’s too little, too late. How many innocent people were murdered courtesy of HAMAS funds he helped raise?
I’ve written about Abudayyeh in the past. Where were the Chicago “investigative reporters”? Busy pandering to him. How funny that they’ve now discovered the guy who was blatantly supporting Islamic terrorism right in their backyard, but were looking the other way and kissing his ass for most of the last decade.
I wish I could say that after all these years and all the damage and mass murder he’s funded, supported, and enabled, that the chickens are coming home to roost. But it’s more like the roost is home to an utter chicken.
