The Department of Homeland Security is once again chasing its favorite phantom, Christian terrorists.
It’s a double-dipping of irony this time, though, because the words of warning come from an apparently influential Islamist-defending Muslim adviser.
DHS adviser Mohamed Elibiary has been tweeting his little fingers off, warning “the Tea Party” that they can’t change the country through “Christianist xenophobia.”
Asked by WorldNet Daily to clarify his comments, Elibiary said that “Christianists” view “politics through a theologically influenced (Calvinist) view of America’s founding. …
“Xenophobia is easier for you to understand on your own, but it generally manifests itself in anti-immigrant policies of which Islamophobia today inside the U.S. is just one sub-component for some White Identity/Privilege types that have a problem with a black president, brown Mexicans and so on and so forth.”
But wait, it gets even weirder.
He continued, “White Americans, unlike other racial and ethnic minorities, aren’t afforded some political space to publicly speak about group identity needs without racism blow back.”
Elibiary must have trained at Toastmasters, because he closes with a knee-slapper: “As one coming from the conservative side of the political spectrum, I’m perhaps more sensitive to the average white guy’s struggle with this dynamic then perhaps a leftist would.”
This is one of those guys whose illogical arguments you don’t even want to get into. He needs a therapist, not a debate.
Obviously, he’s out there with his notions about “white identity/privilege types,” not to mention calling himself conservative.
What’s most alarming about Elibiary’s statements, though, is that he’s right in line with the DHS narrative on Christians and the Tea Party under Obama, and he’s right in line with this Administration’s pro-Muslim Brotherhood sentiments.
Elibiary, who was appointed to the DHS Advisory Council by Janet Napolitano, in the past has tweeted angry messages against the Coptic Christians in Egypt who have become targets of terrorism under the Arab Spring and the Muslim Brotherhood.
“For decade since 9/11 attack extremist American #Coptic activists have nurtured anti #Islam & anti #Muslim sentiments among AM RT wing,” he said in one such message.
Eliabary was also a speaker at a U.S. Muslim conference celebrating the Ayatollah Khomeini, founder of the Iranian Islamic revolution, and he has been a defender of the Council for American Islamic Relations and fundraisers for Hamas.
He wrote an opinion article in the Dallas Morning News criticizing the government for its successful prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation for funneling money to Hamas.
Eliabary is also apparently a huge fan of Muslim cleric Sayyid Qutb, considered the father of the modern Muslim terror movement. Qutb, who was executed in 1966 for trying to overthrow the Egyptian government, called for the founding of a global Islamic state.
The fact that the Obama Administration has someone like Eliabary working for it, even in an advisory capacity, is indicative of the anti-Christian mindset of the man in the Oval Office and his chief lieutenants.
