Rev. Wright Goes Out of His Way to Thank Jihadist, Anti-Semite

By Debbie Schlussel
As I noted last week, former Ayatollah Khomeini employee and eternal friend of Hezbollah and the government of Iran, Imam Mohammed Ali Elahi, went out of his way to praise the Rev. Jeremiah Wright (and attack Jews and Israel), in anticipation of Wright’s speech, last night, to the NAACP Freedom Fund Award Dinner in Detroit.
Well, last night, in his speech, Rev. Wright went out of his way to thank Elahi in his speech.

To get an idea of whom Rev. Wright was thanking, read some of my myriad past work over the years as I’ve followed Imam Elahi, an open proponent of terrorism and defender of Iran:
* Hezbollah U.S.A.: How a U.S. Attorney, the FBI, ICE & a Congressman Helped a Terror Group
* Pander Bears: Abu Mosque-owitz & the Feds Suck Up at Hezbollah Mosque – PART I
Elahi was so extreme, even his own extremist former mosque–the Islamic Center of America–kicked him out.
Yup, the man Obama won’t denounce hangs with one of Iran’s/Hezbollah’s top American agents and specifically praises him.
Great omen for Obama’s Presidency.

But Debbie this is F’ING GREAT! The more this clown panders to the bad guys the more he destroys B.O.! He has become addicted to his own twisted celebrity. The mainstream media will eventually pick up on this with a gusto (or so we all should hope). He is too stupid to go away and be quiet. I love this idiot. He is the rights most powerful weapon right now.

How many more Islamofacists, Jihadists, Muslims have to come out of the woodwork associating themselves with BO before his tag line of “I didn’t hear, I didn’t know, Those are not my beliefs” before people realize that the company you keep defines you more as an individual than the words you speak.
Sorry Debbie, I’m commandeering your website again to post an entire article because I think its relevant.
Terrorist Fundraisers for Obama
By Patrick Poole
FrontPageMagazine.com | Wednesday, April 23, 2008
Two years ago, Hatem El-Hady was the chairman of the Toledo, Ohio-based Islamic charity, Kindhearts, which was closed by the US government in February 2006 for terrorist fundraising and all its assets frozen. Today, El-Hady has redirected his fundraising efforts for his newest cause – Barack Obama for President.
El-Hady has his own dedicated page on Barack Obama’s official website, chronicling his fundraising on behalf of the Democratic Party presidential candidate (his Obama profile established on February 19, 2008 – two years to the day after Kindhearts was raided by the feds). Not only that, but he has none other than Barack Obama’s wife, Michelle Obama, listed as one of his friends (one of her 224 listed friends).
But his leadership of Kindhearts is not the only thing that has brought him scrutiny by federal law enforcement officials. Last summer, El-Hady was questioned by the FBI concerning his knowledge of possible conspirators in a UK-based terror plot.
Hatem El-Hady’s interest in “change” is understandable. Following the closure of Kindhearts, he said in response to the government’s closure of his organization:
“It’s dirty politics,” said Dr. Hatem Elhady, chairman of the board of KindHearts, which raised $5.1 million in 2004. “They do not like the way things are going in Palestine. They do not like the election results. But that is not our problem. Our problem is providing aid to people in desperate need of help.”
The Department of Justice had a very different version of events. According to the DOJ, Kindhearts assumed the role of lead terrorist fundraising in the US after the government had closed other such Islamic “charities”:
“KindHearts is the progeny of Holy Land Foundation and Global Relief Foundation, which attempted to mask their support for terrorism behind the faÁade of charitable giving,” said Stuart Levey, Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence.
Not only was Kindhearts engaged in providing funds for HAMAS in Lebanon and the West Bank, it had hired as a fundraising specialist the man identified as the designated HAMAS bag man in the US, Mohammed El-Mezain.
And as investigative reporter Joe Kaufman revealed, “The Black Hearts of Kindhearts”, a number of other Kindhearts officials were tied to terrorist fundraising and support:
KindHeartsí Director of Domestic Programs, Khalifah Ramadan. Ramadan was a training and evaluation consultant for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), two large Muslim organizations based in the United States that have links to overseas terror groups.
KindHeartsí Representaive, Omar Shahin. Shahin was an Imam for the Islamic Center of Tucson (ICT), the former home of numerous terror operatives, including Wael Jelaidan, who later helped found Al-Qaeda.
KindHeartsí Representative, Wagdy Ghuneim. Ghuneim, an Egyptian cleric, has been featured in KindHearts fundraising dinners for 2002, 2003 and 2004. During a rally at Brooklyn College, in May of 1998, Ghuneim attempted to persuade the crowd to support violent jihad and labeled Jews as ìdescendants of the apes.î
KindHeartsí Representative, Hatem Bazian. Bazian is an Islamic Studies instructor and a member of the faculty of Near Eastern Studies at UC Berkley. In April of 2004, during a San Francisco anti-war rally, Bazian, a native Palestinian, called for an ìintifadaî against the United States. This was just two months prior to Bazian being featured in a KindHearts Fundraising Dinner, entitled ëPalestinians in agony!í
KindHeartsí Manager in Lebanon, Haytham Maghawri (a.k.a. Haytham Fawri). Maghawri, the past Social Services Director for HLF, according to the Treasury Department, ìcollected [KindHearts] funds and sent them to Hamas and other Salafi groups.î [One of the recipients of KindHearts funding was Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) Usama Hamdan, a leader of Hamas in Lebanon.]
And two months before Kindhearts closure by the US government, Beila Rabinowitz had revealed that the South Asia Division Coordinator for Kindhearts, Zulfiqar Ali Shah, had known ties to al-Qaeda, even conducting a 10-day tour with officials for the Tablighi Jamaat organization, which the New York Times had described as “a springboard for militancy” and a “recruitment” center for Al-Qaeda.
Barack Obama has promised change. And as indicated by the public support that his candidacy has received by accused terrorist fundraiser Hatem El-Hady, Obama’s version of change that terrorists and their US supporters can believe in.

“Great omen for Obama’s Presidency.”
Please don’t even say those words, “Obama’s Presidency.”
As much as I loathe Hillary I’d take her any day over Obama.
I think McCain is going to easily win because of the tsunami of information that will expose Obama for the loon he is. Not that McCain is a saint, but the U.S. public snoozing right now is going to get a jolt when all these stories become mainstream…unless McCain is a serious idiot and tries the nicey nice approach.

From my favorite poster, Wolf: “How many more Islamofacists, Jihadists, Muslims have to come out of the woodwork associating themselves with BO before his tag line of “I didn’t hear, I didn’t know, Those are not my beliefs” before people realize that the company you keep defines you more as an individual than the words you speak.”
So your logic is, Obama “keeps the company” of anyone who supports or associates with him.

Audacious,
When YOU assume anything, you make an ASS out of yourself. Never in any of my posts have I claimed to be a GWB supporter.

I’m more pessimistic than Samurai. I remeber when Clinton was running in 1992, I figured that he couldn’t possibly win — he was a draft-dodger, involved in sex scandals, he didn’t inhale, and so on, but it didn’t stop him from winning. Many people’s values are so bizarre, and people are so gullible, when listening to the mainsteam media, that I wouldn’t put anything past Wright. A lot of people are going to listen to his seemingly low-key remarks, sanitize them, separate them from his more rabble-rousing comments, and be tolerant of him to show how open-minded they are.

“Never in any of my posts have I claimed to be a GWB supporter.”
Never said you were, wolf. But you advance the notion that a candidate’s credentials tether on the actions and beliefs of every one of their supporters and associates, which is the usual guilt-by-association nonsense that is the stock in trade of this website.
Wolf, get serious about the issues and cast away the trivial distractions. Come on, wolf, don’t you want a President who is going to concentrate forces on Al-Queda in Afghanistan, as Obama will. Why wouldn’t you support a candidate who is truly committed to bringing down bin Ladin, as Obama is?

Audacious on April 28, 2008 at 4:52 pm

Heatsketch,
If Obama “hung around” with Wright and Ayers, it would be a problem.
But that is not the case.
