Last July, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano defended the Obama administration's decision to grant a visa and invite Hani Nour Eldin — a member Gammaa Islamiya, or Islamic Group -- to the White House.
The Islamic Group, of course, is a US-designated terrorist group. John Rosenthal summed up the reasons at the time:
Not only is the historical leader of Gama’a al-Islamiya none other than Omar Abdel Rahman: the “blind sheikh” who was convicted in 1995 of plotting terrorist attacks on targets in New York City. Not only is Gama’a al-Islamiya formally designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. government. Gama’a al-Islamiya is also, in the person of Abdel Rahman’s successor Refai Ahmed Taha, one of the five signatories of Osama bin Laden’s February 1998 “World Islamic Front Statement Urging Jihad Against Jews and Crusaders.”
Presented as a fatwa, the statement, of which a translation is available here, amounts to bin Laden’s declaration of war on the United States of America. It specifically directs Muslims to attack not only American military personnel, but also civilians. ...
The “World Islamic Front Statement” would unleash a series of worldwide attacks on American interests including the August 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya, the October 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, and, of course, the September 11 attacks in 2001.
This was the jihad-terror-group emissary whose White House invitiation Napolitano defended with great belligerency -- and a promise that more such terrorists would be coming.
As promised, this same treachery against the American people continues.
The Investigative Project reports that Sheikh Abdullah bin Bayyah, vice president of the International Association of Muslim Scholars, visited the White House on June 13. Bin Bayyah is well-qualified to visit the Obama White House, a la the Islamic Group's fatwa, by his own Islamic endorsement of killing Americans in Iraq.
That's right. Another pro-Hamas, death-to-Jews, Islamic mastermind of religious war (jihad) against Americans is received at the White House.
Following up at PJMedia, Patrick Poole explains:
What’s even more remarkable about bin Bayyah’s White House reception is that he was one of the clerics endorsing a IUMS fatwa in November 2004 authorizing the killing of Americans in Iraq. Bin Bayyah was vice president of the organization at the time. The IUMS fatwa was even promoted on the official Iraqi resistance website.
The president of the International Association of Muslim Scholars (aka International Union of Muslim Scholars) is none other than Yusef al-Qaradawi, the "theologian of terror," the Muslim Brotherhood holy-holy, the Al Jazeera talk show mega-star, whose dreams of an Islamic caliphate probably includes a place for himself as "caliph." Qaradawi's many fatwas endorsing the murder of Jews and Americans make him a blood-stained monster -- and perfect candidate for Obama White House tea.
The story of American Betrayal continues.
