Obama’s New OIC Envoy Defended Activist Who Aided Terrorist Group

Not a day goes by as I uncover more and more about Obama, that I don’t feel like John Kerry, doing the “flip-flop” on the pancake griddle.  I’ve tried to believe Obama was clueless, then I start believing he has serious plans to undermine the United States of America.  Unless he is finally forced to show us who he really is he will become a bigger enigma than the Elvis sightings in Minneapolis.

On Saturday, Feb. 13, 2010, President Obama named 31-year-old Rashad Hussain as his envoy to the OIC, the 57-member bloc of Islamic states. (Photo from the Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans)

(CNSNews.com) – President Obama’s newly appointed envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference was quoted in 2004 as saying an American who aided a Palestinian terrorist group was the victim of “politically motivated persecutions” who was being used “to squash dissent.”

Rashad Hussain was quoted as telling a Muslim students’ event in Chicago that if U.S. Muslims did not speak out against the injustices taking place in America, then everyone’s rights would be in jeopardy.


The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA) cited Hussain as making the remarks in connection with Sami al-Arian, a university professor and activist sentenced in 2006 to more than four years in prison (including time already spent in custody) after he had pleaded guilty to conspiring to aid the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).

The U.S. government designated the PIJ as a foreign terrorist organization in 1997, and in 2003, then Attorney-General John Ashcroft described it as “one of the most violent terrorist organizations in the world.”

Palestinian Islamic Jihad has killed more than 100 Israelis in suicide bombings and other attacks. Its victims include American citizens Alisa Flatow, a 20-year-old New Jersey college student killed in a 1995 suicide bombing in Gaza, and 16-year-old Shoshana Ben-Ishai, shot dead in a bus in Jerusalem in 2001.

  1. BHO isn’t going to ever “show his hand.” He must continue to lie and hide his true intentions with rhetoric for the multitudes of clueless. Republicans might want to begin using the words socialism, Communism, Marxism, when referring to the policies coming from the Progressives in Congress and this administration in general. Obama’s actions and appointees are the smoking gun for his true intent for this nation. It chills my blood to think of the damage he will have done to America by Nov. 2, 2010 given the fact NO ONE is calling for his IMPEACHMENT! IMHO, Obama has declared war on the American people. He seems all too comfortable rubbing elbows and taking sides with the Muslim Brotherhood, which doesn’t bode well for us here within U.S. borders, OR on foreign fronts abroad.
