Former Clinton Foundation Employee With Ties To Muslim Brotherhood Sentenced To Life In Prison

A member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt who worked for the William J. Clinton Foundation for five years was sentenced to life in prison last week.

Gehad El-Haddad was sentenced for supporting an Islamist protest against the military-led ousting of former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, The New York Times reported last Saturday.

The Times reported 35 defendants, including El-Haddad’s father and Morsi’s former foreign policy adviser Essam El-Haddad and Mohammed Soltan–an American citizen–were given the sentence by Judge Mohammed Nagi Shehata.

El-Haddad worked as the Muslim Brotherhood’s “senior adviser and media spokesman” shortly after Morsi’s election in 2013 up until his arrest. He had worked as the Clinton Foundation’s city director from August 2007 to August 2012, reported The Washington Free Beacon. This is how the publication profiled him at the time:

El-Haddad gained a reputation for pushing the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamist agenda in the foreign press, where he was often quoted defending the Brotherhood’s crackdown on civil liberties in Egypt.

He was raised in a family of prominent Brotherhood supporters and became the public face of the Islamist organization soon after leaving his post at the Clinton Foundation.

El-Haddad hailed these accomplishments with the Clinton Foundation on his LinkedIn profile:

  • Representing the foundation’s Clinton Climate Initiative in Egypt
  • Setup (sic) the foundation’s office in Egypt and managed official registration.
  • Identified & developed program-based projects & delivery work plans
  • Built & maintained a communications network with more than 50 public organization (sic).
  • Supervised policy-making workshops & presented foundations (sic) views

The profile also said El-Haddad formally joined Morsi’s Freedom and Justice Party in May 2011 as a senior adviser for foreign affairs, overlapping for more than a year during his tenure with the Clinton Foundation.

His work with the two groups also overlapped while he was in charge of the Renaissance Project, a Muslim Brotherhood economic recovery program.

Just over a week after El-Haddad’s conviction, Morsi was sentenced to 20 years in prison by an Egyptian court.

Gay Mafia Targets Christian Pastors, Ignores Muslim Imams Calling For Their Death

In 2015 America, a remnant of faithful Christian pastors, not imams, are being targeted by gay activists. No Christian pastor I know has ever proclaimed or financially supported the beheading of anyone, let alone gays.

The “Gay Mafia,” as Bill Maher calls them, are like fools flouting their own folly. They impose standards (that they don’t follow) solely on Christians through discriminatory legal measures— but completely ignore imams who advocate their death.

No gays are protesting, subpoenaing, or demanding that Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) be arrested, tried, or deported. He asserts:

Homosexuality is a moral disorder. It is a moral disease, a sin and corruption… No person is born homosexual, just like no one is born a thief, a liar or murderer. People acquire these evil habits due to a lack of proper guidance and education.

There are many reasons why it is forbidden in Islam. Homosexuality is dangerous for the health of the individuals and for the society. It is a main cause of one of the most harmful and fatal diseases … It is the most un-natural way of life. Homosexuality leads to the destruction of family life.

Gay activists aren’t protesting ISNA, an organization directly linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and recently lauded by former president Jimmy Carter.

Muslims who follow the Qur’an understand its words as literal, from Allah. The Qur’an states that those who act on same-sex attraction and behavior make a “god (ilah) of there own lusts,” reject Allah’s will, and practice “wickedness” (Qur’an 26.165-166; 27.055; 29.028-29).

There is no such thing as a gay Muslim. Nor is there any public acceptance for the gay lifestyle in any Muslim majority country—or in any Muslim neighborhood or no-go zone in a Muslim minority country.

According to Shar’ia law, the sodomizer and the sodomized both deserve death. Likewise, the rules and punishment for zina (adultery) are applied to lesbians—death for married, lashes for unmarried.

It is common knowledge throughout the Muslim world that no one can be gay and follow Allah. It is also widely acknowledged that the “people of the book,” Jews and Christians—whose laws actually seek to safeguard human rights—must be killed.

Yet, no gays are protesting, subpoenaing, or asserting the arrest, for example, of Imam Abu Ammaar Yasir Qadhi of Memphis, Tenn., who publicly asserts: “Jews and Christians are filthy; their lives and property can be taken in jihad by the Muslims.”

Anyone who believes they are immune from the outworking of Islamic ideology does not understand it. Qadhi asserts, according to the Qur’an, that everyone–not only in America, but worldwide– “must bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah”; and because of this “principle of monotheism … the prophet has been commanded to do jihad.”

Likewise, Brooklyn, N.Y., Imam Tareq Yousef Al-Masri recently declared at the Oulel-Albab mosque: “We, the Muslims … the Muslims of the religious sector are time bombs.”

These imams are not alone.

According to the Mapping Sharia Project, 51 percent of mosques in America had “texts that either advocated the use of violence in the pursuit of a Shari’a-based political order or advocated violent jihad; another 30 percent had texts that were moderately supportive of violence.” Distribution of anti-Western literature, videos, and textbooks is documented, as are the Islamic centers that operate as front groups for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Imam advocacy for the extermination of non-Muslims has existed in America for decades; yet these imams have not been deported, let alone investigated by the IRS or any other government organization for their alleged constitutional violations.

In 1999, Naqshbandi Sufi Sheikh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani testified in front of the State Department that eighty percent of mosques in America had “extremist leaders.” In 2006, Freedom House’s Center for Religious Freedom exposed widespread dissemination of hate ideology in literature and sermons by mosques nationwide. And in 2007, during the Holy Land Foundation trial, perhaps one of the most important documents discovered—the Muslim Brotherhood’s manifesto—revealed its “General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America” to destroy it from within.

Gays’ civil rights, human rights, or even lives for that matter are irrelevant to imams. If gays want to live, they should consider redirecting their vitriol toward imams who preach their death, and toward a silent—yet active—political and legal system perpetuating and enabling treasonous hate speech to their detriment.

Exposed: Obama’s, Muslim Brotherhood’s Orchestration Of Arab Spring, Benghazi

obamaferguson

In 2008, Dalia Mogahed, a former member of Obama’s Advisory Council of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, co-authored a report titled ”Changing Course, A New Direction for U.S. Relations with the Muslim World” for the Leadership Group on U.S.-Muslim Engagement. She, along with other group members (Secretary of State Madeline Albright, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf–of World Trade Center Mosque notoriety–and Muslim Public Affairs Council’s Ahmed Younis), sought to foster “engagement and cooperation” with “political Islam” and, specifically, with the Muslim Brotherhood. They wrote:

“The U.S. must also consider when and how to talk with political movements that have substantial public support and have renounced violence, but are outlawed or restricted by authoritarian governments allied to the U.S. The Muslim Brotherhood parties in Egypt and Jordan are arguably in this category. In general, the Leadership Group supports engagement with groups that have clearly demonstrated a commitment to nonviolent participation in politics.”

In June 2009, Obama addressed Muslims worldwide from Cairo’s Al-Azhar University, with prominent Muslim Brotherhood members sitting in the front row. Obama vowed:

[The] partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t.  And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”

Obama’s Administration began to transform American foreign policy by embracing political Islam and redefining “terror,” which set the stage for creating the Arab Spring. Although the Arab Spring began in December 2010 in Tunisia, the initial focus was Benghazi, Libya.

Despite repeated U.S. military warnings and recommendations to keep Muammar Qadhafi in power, Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton overthrew Qadhafi’s regime, leaving a power vacuum for al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood to fill.

Qadhafi’s weapons were first smuggled to Syrian rebels, which later factioned into what is now ISIS (and potentially reached even Boko Haram).

The mystery surrounding Benghazi can be largely dispelled in a few short paragraphs.

First, the February 17 Martyrs Brigade (aka Ansar al-Sharia, a jihad militia) was hired to guard the compound by the American government.

Second, according to CNN’s Jake Tapper, dozens of CIA operatives were allegedly on the ground during the attack; and the Obama administration went to “great lengths” to obscure their activities. Many speculate Ambassador Stevens was a CIA asset in the State Department.

Third, only hours before the attack on September 11, 2012, Stevens met with a Turkish ambassador at the compound. Turkey was a transshipment point for many Libyan weapons that were later smuggled to jihadists worldwide.

Fourth, Morsi’s Egyptian government (Muslim Brotherhood-controlled) was also involved with the compound’s attack. In fact, some of the terrorists were recorded on video pleading: “Don’t shoot! Dr. Morsi sent us!”

These facts beg the question: If Ambassador Stevens was actually overseeing a gun-running operation to Islamic/jihadist/Muslim Brotherhood militias, why then would the same people kill him, as the American public was repeatedly told?

One theoretical answer endorsed by retired Four Star Admiral James Lyons suggests that Ambassador Stevens was to be traded for the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel-Rahman, a man who had embodied Islamic terrorism to the world for generations and who Morsi wanted released from prison.

However, this plan went spectacularly wrong, resulting in a botched cover-up that succeeded primarily because of the news industry’s negligence in investigating the facts.

In an alarming breach of protocol and sworn duty, Obama Special Advisor Valerie Jarrett ordered the U.S. military to “stand down,” effectively ordering American citizens to be left to fend for themselves against a well-armed jihadist militia.

Next came the now infamous Susan Rice national media blitz, throughout which she delivered identical talking points to numerous news outlets blaming the Benghazi attack on an obscure and poorly produced movie. The talking points she and others later recited were detailed in an email Ben Rhodes, Obama’s 2009 Cairo speechwriter, sent to a list of people–including a George Washington University MSA member copied on the email.

Unsurprisingly, George Soros also was linked to Benghazi. The Obama-appointed lead investigator for the attack was Ambassador Thomas Pickering, who had ties to CAIR–a well-known Muslim Brotherhood organization in the United States. At the time of the investigation, Pickering was Soros’ International Crisis Group co-chair (and still remains a trustee).

Since the Arab Spring, political unrest, violence, and militia rule continue to plague Libya. Its economic infrastructure has nearly deteriorated, and the rule of law remains non-existent there. According to Open Doors USA, Libya is ranked #13 out of the top 50 countries where Christians are most persecuted.

The Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi asserted that Obama “switched sides in the War on Terror.”

However, many others assert Obama’s plan to destroy America from within was intentionally planned before he was ever elected to office. Obama was always a Muslim who understood, believed in, and supported political Islam. Over time, this reality became apparent through his claim to “stand with [Muslims] should the political winds shift in an ugly direction” and his declaration to the United Nations that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

The Betrayal Papers Part III: The Extensive Muslim Brotherhood Network In America

Photo credit: shutterstock.com

What do Common Core, “comprehensive” immigration reform, and IRS targeting of conservatives groups have in common? They are just a few of many examples of Muslim Brotherhood-connected policy initiatives affecting the lives of Americans every day. Under Obama, many new domestic policies, as well as many scandals, can be traced back to, in varying degrees, the Muslim Brotherhood.

To understand why America no longer feels like America – why it seems that the government has its favorites while others are targeted and even persecuted – it is important to understand two strong influences on the Muslim Brotherhood. The first is historical: the Nazi Party of Hitler’s Germany. The second is more contemporary: the strategy developed by Al Qaeda’s strategic mastermind, Abu Musab al-Suri.

Consider just one subject area mentioned in the full report–illegal immigration–which can be read here: Betrayal Papers Part 3.

THE PURGING OF THE U.S. MILITARY OF OFFICERS AND CHRISTIANITY

Over the past several years, the U.S. military has been purged of hundreds of high-ranking officers. Many of these dedicated life-long military leaders were dismissed for trivial “offenses.” Simultaneously, Christianity, Christians, and the Bible are being purged from the U.S. military. Christian chaplains are being reprimanded for sharing their faith. Indeed, the Pentagon has gone so far as to state that sharing the Gospel could result in court martials for anyone in the military. The Family Research Council has listed recent actions taken against Christians in the military and released a video detailing the “Clear and Present Danger” Christians in the military face.

Anti-Police Protests: In conjunction with the militarization of DHS, the Obama Administration and Eric Holder’s “Justice” Department have targeted state and local law enforcement. Their anti-police agenda culminated last summer with orchestrated riots in Ferguson, Missouri, and violent protests in New York City. Among the most prominent groups involved in these protests was ANSWER, a pro-Palestinian group that had on its original steering committee the Muslim Students Association.

And—the NYC cop killer Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley had publicly stated on his Facebook page that he was a former Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) (Muslim Brotherhood) employee. At the time of the killing, ISNA’s president was Mohamed Magid, an advisor to Obama, DHS, and the National Security Council.

Read more about spying and wiretapping, George Soros, the militarization of Homeland Security, and the plan to destroy America’s economy.

Taken alone, none of these events would be of much concern in a country of more than 300 million people. Even the general feeling of depression and oppression by government could be overlooked as a result of global economic conditions, seen as “outside the control” of even the President of the United States.

But when seen together through the lens of the Muslim Brotherhood’s carefully constructed plan, it becomes quite clear that America is being destroyed from within. Attacks on cops, illegal immigration policies, IRS persecution of American citizens, the infiltration, and propaganda being taught to children through Common Core school curricula all originate from the genesis of the Muslim Brotherhood.

American citizens have an opportunity and dire responsibility to reverse this course by demanding the Constitution be enforced, that terrorists be deported, and that the protection of citizens comes first before any and all policies.

No Tears For Egyptian Christians In A Muslim Brotherhood-Friendly White House

Facebook/Barack Obama

The Obama White House-supported Muslim Brotherhood is at war with Egypt; and as a result, security is tight throughout that nation. The Cairo airport is locked down tight; no one without a ticket to fly can get into the airport terminal. The Egyptians have an understanding that the White House does not – the Muslim Brotherhood will resort to terror if it can’t get what it wants at the ballot box.

Although it is resorting to terror in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood has a formal and lasting relationship with the Obama White House. This is evidenced by a recent visit to the White House by Muslim Brotherhood activists on February 4th. That meeting prompted outcries from the Egyptian government and raised concerns in other Middle East nations that are Muslim Brotherhood targets.

The exact date the Muslim Brotherhood – White House relationship began is not known; however, the Wall Street Journal first reported on Secretary Hillary Clinton “reaching out” to the Muslim Brotherhood in 2011, shortly after the Egyptian government fell to protesters. The relationship must have actually begun much earlier. Clinton’s trusted aide, Huma Mahmood Abedin, had been steadily moving her toward the Muslim Brotherhood.

Abedin at the time was U.S. Deputy Chief of Staff at the State Department and had been a longtime personal aide of Secretary Clinton. Abedin, whose mother and father were deeply involved in the Muslim Brotherhood leadership, convinced Clinton that to “control” the outcome of the Arab Spring and keep governments from falling into extremist hands, the United States must back “moderate” Islamist parties. Of course, her “moderate” solution was the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization that works for the same end result as the Islamic State but is willing to get there at a slower pace.

The Obama/Clinton Grand Strategy for the Middle East was dealt with in depth in a Wall Street Journal article by Walter Russell Mead in 2013. Describing the Grand Strategy, he wrote:

The plan was simple but elegant: The U.S. would work with moderate Islamist groups like Turkey’s AK Party and Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood to make the Middle East more democratic. This would kill three birds with one stone. First, by aligning itself with these parties, the Obama administration would narrow the gap between the ‘moderate middle’ of the Muslim world and the U.S. Second, by showing Muslims that peaceful, moderate parties could achieve beneficial results, it would isolate the terrorists and radicals, further marginalizing them in the Islamic world. Finally, these groups with American support could bring democracy to more Middle Eastern countries, leading to improved economic and social conditions, gradually eradicating the ills and grievances that drove some people to fanatical and terroristic groups.

From the beginning of the Arab Spring, the Muslim Brotherhood was assisted by the Obama White House in taking over nations that had been secular-leaning, including Tunisia and Egypt, under the guiding hand of Hillary Clinton. The attempts in Libya and Syria failed, but those nations are still bleeding as a result. The main victims of the Abedin/ Clinton plan accepted by the Obama White House have been the actual moderates, who are secularists, and, of course, the Christians.

Currently, the only nation under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood is our NATO “ally” Turkey, which is supporting violence against Egypt for casting off the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013 and voting in favor of a more secular government. Turkey also assisted tens of thousands of Sunni Islamist fighters in crossing the border into Syria to war with the secular government there. Still, the Muslim Brotherhood has the full support of the Obama White House.

Rejected by the army and the vast majority of Egyptians, including Coptic Christians, the Muslim Brotherhood has moved from the ballot box to the bullet box to seek power.

MEMRI, a media translation service, recently reported that: “The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood (MB) has recently escalated its statements and activity against the Egyptian regime, to the extent of explicitly calling for using terrorism and violence against it, and even for assassinating President ‘Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sisi. These calls included an MB communique calling on movement activists to prepare for a lengthy and uncompromising jihad and to hunger for a martyr’s death; clear incitement to violence on MB TV channels broadcasting from Turkey.”

The delusional concept that having a “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood in control will somehow restrain “extremism” is alive and well at the White House. A blind eye is turned to the fact that 90% of the jihadists from all over the world going to fight jihad in Syria and Iraq have used Turkey as their entry point. With the Muslim Brotherhood as an ally, it is not possible for the White House to be critical of anything Muslim. This may explain Obama’s empty and duplicitous response to the beheading of 21 Coptic Christians on a beach in Libya by the ISIL.

President Obama could find no religious motivation for the killings at all! His White House issued a statement saying: “The United States condemns the despicable and cowardly murder of twenty-one Egyptian citizens in Libya by ISIL-affiliated terrorists. We offer our condolences to the families of the victims and our support to the Egyptian government and people as they grieve for their fellow citizens. ISIL’s barbarity knows no bounds. It is unconstrained by faith, sect, or ethnicity.”

Well, the Islamic State had tried to make the religious element as clear as they could. They even produced a polished production video showing the 21 Christian men, hands bound behind them, being led one-by-one along a beach to their brutal slaughter. They could be heard crying out “Ya Rabbi Yasou”, which translates as “Lord Jesus!” while others recited the Lord’s Prayer. The video, titled A Message Signed with BLOOD to the Nation of the Cross, is indisputably and intensely religious. The entire production is full of references to the Qur’an and the Hadiths of Muhammad.

In an article concerning the video production, theologian and scholar Dr. Mark Durie wrote: “The whole event was meticulously choreographed and rehearsed.  The video’s obvious purpose is to humiliate and terrorize Christians, whom it derisively calls, ‘The Nation of the Cross.’ Still, Obama could not even bring himself to identify the victims as Christians, referring to them only as ‘citizens.’”

Contrast this evasive response to the quick way he reacted a few days earlier when, during a neighborhood dispute over parking spaces, three Muslims were gunned down. Immediately, President Obama blamed their deaths on religious discrimination, saying that “No one in the United States of America should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, or how they worship.” Had President Obama known then that the killer was an activist atheist and a far left “progressive” Obama fan, he probably would not have said anything.

In the case of the parking lot dispute in which the victims were Muslims, FBI agents were immediately ordered in by President Obama to investigate possible Civil Rights crimes. Yet, when Major Nidal Malik Hasan killed thirteen fellow soldiers plus one unborn baby at Foot Hood in 2009 while shouting “Allah Akbar,” President Obama saw the “crime” as “workplace violence.” Within hours, he asked the nation to be “constrained” and not blame Islam or Muslims for the death toll.

The White House will not even refer to the Islamic State by name and uses the initials ISIL in all official statements. To say the name that the organization calls itself is even taboo at the White House because the word “Islamic” is a part of that name.

The logic for this refusal was made clear by Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, in a Fox News Sunday program on February 22nd.

Johnson said: “To refer to ISIL as occupying any part of the Islamic theology is playing on a battlefield that they would like us to be on. I think that to call them some form of Islam gives the group more dignity than it deserves frankly.” Identifying Islamic terrorists as Islamic gives them “dignity” is the liberal logic.

But the Obama Administration has no problem using the term Christian to identify terrorists even if they are not Christian. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf on MSNBC must then have given “dignity” to Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Army when she called it a “Christian militant group.” In reality, Kony’s group is a strange mixture of religions including animism. His recognition of Jesus is just about as authentic as the Islamic version of Jesus. Even so, Kony’s army is at most responsible for 1 act of terror for every 10,000 acts of terror by Islamic groups in the world today; this is not to say that he should not be brought to justice quickly.

During his interview on Fox News, Secretary Johnson did let slip the real reason why the Obama Administration does not use the word “Islamic” when describing terror, and where the term “violent extremism” came from. Muslim leaders in the United States don’t want the Obama Administration to refer to Islamic terror as Islamic terror. Johnson said, “The thing I hear from leaders in the Muslim community in this country is, ‘ISIL is attempting to hijack my religion’.”

Because of ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the Obama Administration is trying to fight the shadow of fundamentalist Islam, which is terror, without identifying what casts that shadow of terror on the world today. A people, a nation that refuses to identify its enemy cannot defeat that enemy. It is not possible to defeat a shadow; the figure that casts the shadow must be defeated. Until there is an administration in Washington, DC, that is willing to identify and fight the enemy of Western civilization, there can be no lasting success.
