Last month the Obama Administration selected a devoted Islamist with terrorist loyalties to lead a U.S. Delegation to a major international conference in Warsaw, Poland. Salam al-Marayati, President of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (an Islamic lobby group) was named as the Obama Administration’s official representative to the “Conference on Human Rights” sponsored annually by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).
Salam al-Marayati is not your run of the mill “moderate American Muslim.” He is an anti-Semitic Islamic Supremacist who publicly blamed Israel for the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on America. While on a L.A. radio show on September 11, 2001, Al- Marayati suggested Israel should be on the “suspect list” for the attack since Israel “diverts attention” with “these kinds of incidents” so “that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies” in Palestinian territories.
In 2011, Al-Marayati wrote an article for the Los Angeles Times critical of FBI training materials. In his article he made reference to such moderate Muslim positions as “Civilizational Jihad” in America. His article expressed his desire for “replacement of American Judeo-Christian and Western liberal social, political and religious foundations by Islam.” For those of you who don’t know, “Civilization-Jihadist Process” is a tenet of the Muslim Brotherhood. Internal Muslim Brotherhood documents captured overseas reveals that followers of Islam “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within” and through adherence, Islam “is made victorious over all other religions.”
Al-Marayati has also publicly praised Hamas and Hezbollah and asked the U.S. government to remove them from the list of U.S. designated terrorist groups. His so called public service agency, the “Muslim Public Affairs Council” prides itself on organizing sustained efforts “that change U.S. policy” and provide for “the integration of Islam into American Pluralism.”
I don’t know about you, but the thought of integrating anything Islamic into my country’s ideology is to say the least, slightly disconcerting. Apparently the Obama State Department is not as concerned with Mr. Al-Marayati’s radical philosophies as I am. After all they sent him (at tax payer expense) to Europe’s largest human rights and democracy conference as an acting American diplomat to share his views on topics like violence against women, international hate crimes, and government transparency.
Historically Executive Administrations vet and choose their representatives for international conferences based upon confirmable shared values. When pressed about Mr. Al-Marayati’s the State Department defended his selection by praising A-Marayati as “valued and highly credible” and “a reflection of the wide diversity of backgrounds of the American people.” In other words giving public aid and support to terrorist groups no longer disqualifies candidates from participation in international policy summits.
In 1994 Judeo-Christian communities watched as the world congratulated the father of modern terrorism Yasser Arafat and presented him with the Noble Peace Prize. On that day, terrorism was legitimized as international diplomacy and thousands of murdered Israeli citizens were forgotten. How long will it be before America casts aside the thousands of Americans murdered on 9-11 and the tens of thousands wounded and lost to our war with Islamic Jihadists? Didn’t we learn anything from the foreign policy failures of the Carter Administration? Last month, a U.S Ambassador and three brave Americans were murdered by Islamic Jihadists in an act of terror in Benghazi, Libya while a White House appointed terrorism lobbyist attended an international conference on human rights.
Salam al-Marayati should be under investigation if not under arrest by Janet Napolitano and her Department of Homeland Security. I wonder how much Wahhabi campaign support it takes to sacrifice a U.S Ambassador’s life for an Islamic Jihadist’s White House access? I really don’t think Americans have to wonder whose side our President is on anymore; clearly it’s not the one that fears our Islamic enemies.
