American Islamic “Youth Mentor” Tied to HAMAS, Fired by Even Ex-Rep. McKinney

By Debbie Schlussel
Much is being made of Muslim U.S. Congressman-elect Keith Ellison’s speech, this weekend, at the Dearbornistan annual convention of the Muslim American Society (the Muslim Brotherhood) and the jihadist Islamic Circle of North America.
But not much mention has been made of another speaker at the event, Raeed Tayeh. Billed as a national “Muslim youth mentor” and speaking on “Intimidation at School: How to Deal with It,” Tayeh is an odd choice . . . or perhaps a deliberate one.
I know of Tayeh well because in 2002, I debated him on both FOX News’ “O’Reilly Factor” and MSNBC’s “Hardball,” when he was leading a worldwide Muslim boycott of Starbucks on the “grounds” that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is Jewish and had denounced anti-Semitism. Tayeh was also promoting Caribou Coffee, owned by mostly Saudis and employing high-level officers who support homicide bombings of Jews and American soldiers in Iraq.


Raeed Tayeh: Extremist, National Muslim Youth Mentor

At the time, Tayeh was the spokesman for a sketchy organization called American Muslims for Global Peace and Justice, which had ties to Al-Qaeda and an extremist Southern California mosque and was reportedly rejected by the IRS in its attempts to get 501(c)(3) status. The organization and its website have since disappeared.
I saw Tayeh, again, in 2004, just after several Americans were beheaded by Muslims in Iraq and Saudi Arabia. He was MCing a Dearbornistan fundraiser for HAMAS-front charity Islamic Relief Worldwide, at which the “entertainment” was young Muslim American boys wearing American, British, and Israeli flags simulating beheadings on each other.
Tayeh, a former employee of the HAMAS-front group Islamic Association for Palestine, worked for several organizations tied to Islamic terrorist organizations and his activities are well-known in support of anti-Semitism.
Even wacko ex-Rep. Cynthia McKinney a/k/a “Jihad Cindy” fired Tayeh in November 2001 for writing an anti-Semitic letter to Capitol Hill newspaper, “The Hill,” questioning the loyalty of Jewish Members of Congress and the Senate.
Before that, he was filmed at a pro-HAMAS, pro-Hezbollah rally in front of the Clinton White House shouting statements about how Palestine was “from the river to the sea” (ie., all of Israel). Also of note, Tayeh was a “mediator” on behalf of convicted terrorist Fawaz Abu Damrah (see also, here), Imam of the Cleveland Mosque, who deservedly now rots in jail.
Tayeh is, indeed, an interesting choice for a “mentor” for anyone. That these Muslim organizations would choose this open supporter of terrorism, jihad, and bigotry to “mentor” their kids, tells us everything we need to know about them. And everything we already knew.

Keep up the good work, Debbie! Thanks for exposing the Islamist enemy within on a regular basis. The MSM will never let us know what is going on with these IslamiNazis. We need to drive them out into the open and deal with them as the deadly enemies that they are.

so the new congressman appeared along with this ass… Seems like we know where his sympathies lie.

Rep. Goode is simply expressing doubts about the loyalty of Muslims such as Ellison. Given his past with the Nation of Islam, and his current affinity for radical Imams and terror-linked groups, I would not doubt if we’re dealing with a 5th columnist here.

Why is Coca-Cola doing deals with Caribou Coffee:
Has anyone looked into new Coke COO Muhtar Kent’s background (aside from the fact that he’s had insider trading allegations in the past).

People should check out the moronic Rick Moran and his idiotic website called “The Rightwing Nuthouse.” Moronic Moran was criticizing Virgil Goode. Obviously the fool does not know Ellison’s background.

Debbie, I have not seen this guy mentioned anywhere else.. thanks. Ellison will be exposed fairly quickly i would think.. he seems to lack sophistication in either language or thought. And for Tayeh to be fired by Cindy McKinney for extremist views lmaoo now thats saying something. Mentoring the kids is where its at..the future sleeper cells and, when the time comes, suicide bombers are contained in those ranks. From a barbaric, murderous, midieval point of view, Tayeh was a good selection.

Debbie, you are exactly right about Moran. I only mentioned the fool to show how idiots on both the right (he is supposedly on the right) and the left can underestimate a guy like Ellison. I credit people such as yourself and Goode for shining the light on guys like Ellison. Good work as always.

Unfortunately, I think it will take another catastrophic attack on America before all these Muslim “leaders” are boxed up and shipped out. America has become waaaaaaaaaaay too tolerant of these pukes.

Debbie, nobody seems to care. people still elect liberals and demorats into office. people do not see the danger of extreemist muslims. they cannot comprehend wrapping a bomp around their child and sending them off to market to blow up not to buy anything. the press showed countless times aabout abugrabe(please forgive spelling), yet when our soldiers get blown up by an ied, it is treated just like nothing story. someone places a carcas of an animal on the side of a road, stuffs it with explosives, hooks it up to a cell phone and wait until one of our soldiers comes near. it does not matter who else is there, these low lifes trigger the bomb and take out who ever is near, children and other innocent people makes no difference. They fly into buildings and kill indiscrininately hundreds(trying for thousands) of people while the terrorists friends and family are back home cheering. Yet we cannot single out a possible terrorist that may be trying to blow up a plan or building because they might look like a muslim because that would be profilling. if you mention Jesus Christ at a graduation commencement or at a city building, the swat team comes out in force to protect the seperation of church and state in the constitution(which is not there, a lie.)
I think that people are either too lazy or too stupid and gullable to figure things out.

I have been reading your reports about radical muslims for some time now and I can’t help but be really concerned that our country is being invaded by terrorist. anyone that supports terrorist groups in any way is guilty of being a terrorist. How come we don’t hear about these things in other media? Bill O’Reilly has reported a little on radical muslims, but not as extensively as you have. Well done. How can a person with ties to radical islam be elected to any kind of government/justice position? In the case of Keith Ellison, who voted for him? Were the people who voted for him American citizens? One thing I’ve learned since 9/11 about Muslims, their first loyalty is to Islam. A muslim will let a non-muslim die if saving the non-muslim goes against their religion. Why have the so called “Moderate Muslims” been silent about all the violence committed in the name os Islam? I really hate to say this, but I do not trust Muslims. Happy New Year…

Debbie is a true crusader for the truth…pun intended. Radical Islam roams freely in our country…intent on doing incredible harm, damage and loss of life…and the libs think it’s just peachy…and the Repulicans just tell other Republicans if they aren’t just blatant RINOs, which seems to be the case 8 times out of 10 these days. Why are “moderate Muslims” so silent? asks jimretnavy (thanks for your service!). Because they are either scared or in agreement. Either choice says scads about Islam. And let a Muslim take office in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA using a Koran? Not no…but HELL no!!! If people don’t want to live in a Judeo-Christian society…in peace with their own religion of choice…then get the hell out! You want socialism or “blah”?…go to France! I’d love to see a whole comic book dedicated to lampooning Mohammed…just to watch all the Islamo-facist’s heads explode! Speaking of which…looking forward to “the hanging”…

Folks the bottom line is, the party is over in this country. Ben Franklin said it best “a republic if you can keep it”. Well we lost it.
Lets stop kidding our self’s , you have over half of the country who vote who pay no taxes. Guess which way they vote. Plus you have a million or more a year invading us, guess which way they will vote.
You the MSM except for a few exceptions are nothing more than lefty propaganda machines. Same goes for academia. We may slow the loss of our republic down, but that is it.Conservatives/ Libertarians we have lost the war.
