Janet Napolitano Appoints Jihadist to Homeland Security Advisory Committee: Logical Conclusion to ADC Outreach Bush & Chertoff Started

By Debbie Schlussel
On Friday, not a big news day, the Muslim-dominated, openly pro-Hezbollah and pro-HAMAS American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee sent out a press release gloating that its national executive director, Kareem Shora, was sworn in by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC). The council is made up of 21 members, who are mostly members of law enforcement and government officials.
If you’re like me, you’re familiar with Shora, who has been an open, vehement opponent of any and every tool and move American law enforcement has made in the fight against terrorism and dangerous Muslim illegal aliens from the Middle East. As a lawyer and an ADC legal advisor, he was front and center in opposing profiling, the use of secret evidence against Islamic terrorists seeking to enter the U.S. and become citizens, and even the background checks that the U.S. does on every single person seeking to become a U.S. citizen. He is the father of the litigation jihad.

Now It’s Really the Dept. of Jihadist Security

And I know of him from personal experience, since he and ADC criminal (yes, she has a criminal record) chieftess Mary Rose Oakar tried to use the FBI to silence me and my writing. Imagine what they will do with the Department of Homeland Security. Shora included me in the bogus “ADC 1998-2000 Report on Hate Crimes and Discrimination Against Arab Americans” and “Report on Hate Crimes and Discrimination Against Arab Americans: The Post September 11 Backlash – September 11, 2001 to October 11, 2002.” My “hate crime”: writing about jihadists/Islamic terrorists. You, apparently, aren’t allowed to do that in America, in his opinion. And Shora and the ADC got some idiot left-wing Congressman to insert the reports into the Congressional Record, along with National Catfish Day recognition, and other such highly important and scholarly information.
A few gems from his bio:

Shora is also ADC’s representative on several committees with the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR) and a Steering Committee member of the Detention Watch Network. A frequent guest on Al-Jazeera, Shora has spoken about civil rights, civil liberties and immigration policy with many national and international media outlets . . . .
Shora also co-authored the LCCR’s report on racial profiling entitled Wrong Then, Wrong Now: Racial Profiling Before and After September 11, and the ADC 1998-2000 Report on Hate Crimes and Discrimination Against Arab Americans and Report on Hate Crimes and Discrimination Against Arab Americans: The Post September 11 Backlash – September 11, 2001 to October 11, 2002 (Part of the Congressional Record).
Shora, who was born in Damascus, Syria . . . has served as a legal associate with the WV Office of the Attorney General, the WVU Immigration Law Clinical Program.

Shora refuses to condemn HAMAS, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, and other Islamic terrorist groups, whom he views as freedom fighters.
Just what we need–a jihadist getting confidential information on sources, methods, and operations of the Department of Homeland Security.
But it shouldn’t be a shocker to anyone who has been a reader of this site and my columns over almost a decade. Just after 9/11, the Bush administration began heavy outreach to ADC, even prompting the FBI to give an award to ADC senior national advisor and Midwest regional director Imad Hamad–a “former” PFLP terrorist and marriage fraud perpetrator whom the government had been trying to deport for well over a decade. The award was revoked after I exposed it in a New York Post column.
Since then, as I’ve detailed on my site, the ADC has been a designated destination for top Homeland Security officials. Daniel Sutherland, a top Homeland Security advisor and Bush appointee, made monthly trips to Detroit to fete Hamad, an open supporter and defender of HAMAS homicide bombers and the Hezbollah murderers of over 300 U.S. Marines and officials.
Sutherland frequently advised then-Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, which led to leniency by DHS officials in enforcing immigration laws against Muslim illegal aliens and travelers in our nation’s airports, among other things. Sutherland and Shora were in frequent contact, as were Chertoff’s top deputies on his behalf. And ADC’s Hamad was solicited by DHS official Brian Moskowitz a/k/a “Abu Moskowitz” (Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Agent in Charge for Michigan and Ohio) to submit a stack of resumes of Muslim candidates for ICE agents, who got special interviews for ICE positions, including Hamad’s nephew–who was accompanied to his ICE agent interview by Moskowitz, despite the fact that he didn’t meet even minimum requirements to get the interview in the first place.
Before all of that, the first Homeland Security Secretary, Tom Ridge, flew to Detroit to have dinner with Hamad and other Muslim activists and officials at La Shish, the now-defunct restaurant, which was already widely known at the time to be the house finance organ of Hezbollah.
And, throughout the Bush administration, ADC representatives were constantly invited as observers as DHS personnel carried out rehearsals of their responses to terrorist attacks, letting them in on our first responders’ procedures so ADC officials could inform their jihadist buddies.
So, while it is very disturbing that Napolitano appointed Shora to this committee, it’s not much different from the outrageously pandering efforts toward ADC that the Bushies started. And now the slippery slope has reached its latest–but not ultimate–destination.
***
In case you were wondering, here are the other members of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC)–as you can see, Shora doesn’t belong (nor does the guy from the Navajo Nation–neither brings any expertise, just whines):

Lee Hamilton, former Congressman and President of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars; Martin O’Malley, Governor of Maryland; Judge William Webster, former Director of Central Intelligence; Sonny Perdue, Governor of Georgia; Raymond Kelly, New York City Police Commissioner; Louis Freeh, former FBI Director and Senior Managing Partner at Freeh Group International; Frances Fragos Townsend, former White House Homeland Security Advisor; Kenneth “Chuck” Canterbury, National President of the Fraternal Order of Police; Manny Diaz, Mayor of Miami, Florida; Jared “Jerry” Cohon, President of Carnegie Mellon University; Leroy “Lee” Baca, Sheriff of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department; Clark Kent Ervin, former DHS Inspector General and Director of the Homeland Security Program at The Aspen Institute; Sherwin “Chuck” Wexler, Executive Director of the Police Executive Research Forum; Harold Schaitberger, General President of the International Association of Firefighters; and Joe Shirley Jr., President of the Navajo Nation.

Just another gleaming, yet pitiful, example of how this dysfunctional agency has gone down the tank. It’s kept dropping new depths of depravity since its conception and continues to strive for the bottom position. Good ‘ol DHS (Department of Hose ‘em Squarely) and it’s pathetic offspring ICE keeps on pandering to the very elements we need to get rid of, including puff-princesses like Moskowitz and others, while screwing the real troops in the trenches because ICE doesn’t seem to have better things to do with their time and resources.
What a sad joke!

Is this guy Shora involved in the lawsuit (including the restraining order) trying to silence Joe Kaufman from criticizing Islamofacism?

What is going on at the GAZA strip today? I heard a snippet on FOX news and I thought they stated Israel destoyed a couple of suicide bombers before they reached… I could not find any information on any media outlets…. not surprising of course…Any update?

DHS is a joke. First of all, the Department has nothing to do with Homeland Security except for performing the traditional duties of Customs and Immigration inspection and control. DHS is just another layer of federal bureaucracy that costs the taxpayers billions of additional dollars each year. DHS competes with the FBI and other Justice Department agencies for headlines.
It is my experience as a former federal employee (32 years in criminal investigations) the majority of time, money and resources are spent by agencies competing for turf and headlines. We used to say that the war on drugs was fought between Customs, DEA & the FBI.
DHS gives citizens a false sense of security. Our country is less safe since DHS was formed under the Bush administration. The ObamanNation continues to weaken our national security.
ICE special agents are being discouraged from performing any immigration enforcement. Instead they are joining the war on drugs by being sent on temporary assignments to border locations. Sources report that their duties are to collect per diem while appearing to be busy participating in the war on drugs.
Yes, this is your federal tax dollar at work. 50% of the federal bureaucracy needs to be abolished. This could be accomplished in an orderly manner through attrition and a hiring freeze. But don’t look for it to happen in my lifetime. In fact, look for the number of federal employees to continue to sky rocket. Under the ObamaNation, up is down, wrong is right and truth is fiction.

Yes this has become a joke this department. And the joke is on the American people it is supposed to protect. This pandering to Muslims is sickening.
I wish DHS could give out swift justice like North Korea. They obviously don’t pander. Sentencing those two illegal alien spies was good news to wake up to. Liberals are sobbing. HA-HA!!

Kareem Shora isn’t the only fox DHS has appointed to help guard the hen house. Check this out:

The reason another 9/11 hasn’t happened has nothing to do with the activities of DHS. We’ve been lucky so far. But America’s luck is not going to last forever.
With appointments like this, as with the Islamist pandering under the previous Bush Administration, America is signaling she is desperate but not serious in defending itself against Islam.

After 911 they established this agency and I was very uncomfortable for one reason, since when does the USA call an agency Department of “Homeland” Security. The hair on the back of my neck stood straight up when I heard this as it reminded me of Nazi Germany.
Not one state controlled news agency said a word but when has anyone in a official capacity ever referred to our country the “Homeland”.
We we now see there was reason for the hair on my neck to stand straight up as the people running DHS seem to be just like their namesakes.

Interesting how some people personally attack Ms. Schlussel, I find it offensive and completely inappropriate. AND as most people know, death threats are ILLEGAL in the United States of America. Admittedly, I am not in complete agreement with all that is written with regard to Sarah Palin on this site.
Perhaps, dissenters should stick with issue-related arguments. In fact, every time Ms. Schlussel is challenged with inappropriate commentary, she reposts the comments and knows precisely how to handle the personal attacks from commentators. I am new to her site, but my observation is that she is a legendary litigator in her journalism. I will be supporting her in her efforts, and so will many of the people I lobby with nationwide.

You all sound like a bunch of idiots, not even researching what is put to you in print by these so called Americans. Use common sense. The government is suspect no matter what happens. Look at the 9/11 tragedy. There was print going around back then, that Bush knew they were going to fly into those buildings, and he just let it happen. These are the same people spreading this stuff about Obama/Napolitano, etc. Quit listening to these idiots, as they are trying to futher their own initiatives.
