Barack Obama Has a Preference for Muslim Brotherhood Advisers


Among the many recipients of the smoking gun Benghazi emails was an Obama adviser who is tied to the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s especially odd given the fact that congress was not given these emails and when they asked if there were any more, the administration said there weren’t any.

The smoking gun emails of Sept. 14, 2012, cc’d one Mehdi K. Alhassani who is a Special Assistant to the Office of the Chief of Staff, National Security Council Staff, and Executive Office of the president.

While a student at George Washington University, Alhassani was president of the Muslim Student Association (MSA), a Muslim Brotherhood front group. It was the same chapter who, four years earlier had a chaplain named Anwar al-Awlaki. Al-Awlaki was a terrorist famous in part for the emails he exchanged with the Ft. Hood terrorist.

He has ties to other Brotherhood organizations.

The Egyptian government has listed the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

Last December, an important Egyptian magazine reported that the US has six Muslim Brotherhood operatives working in the government:

Arif Aflikhan, Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

Arif Alikhan is a founder of the World Islamic Organization, which the magazine identifies as a Brotherhood “subsidiary.” It suggests that Alikhan was responsible for the “file of Islamic states” in the White House and that he provides the direct link between the Obama administration and the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011.

The World Islamic Organization is on a mission to rid the world of what they deem to be Islamophobia. Their Facebook page endulges in anti-Jewish rhetoric.

The pillar of Obama’s counterterrorism efforts is Muslim outreach. Immediately after the Boston bombings, representatives from the departments of Justice and Homeland Security turned to Muslim communities, not about the unfolding investigation, but to offer assistance in case they suffered backlash or threats!

DHS is more outreach than it is security these days.

The Obama administration takes advice from Syrian Brotherhood rebels. Mr. Obama’s approach is somewhat reminiscent of the Carter administration’s arming of the Mujahadeen.

Syria’s president Bashar al-Assad is a Shiite. Al Qaeda are Sunnis. The Syrian rebel forces include large numbers of Sunnis who are al Qaeda or members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Al Qaeda is an offshoot of the Brotherhood.

Two Sunnis leading the Syrian National Council (SNC), the widely recognized government-in-exile, were also advisors to the Obama administration. One of those advisers is Louay Safi.

Louay Safi is a founder of the SNC and an advisor to the Obama administration.

Dr. Louay Safi was born and educated in Damascus Syria. He came to the US in the 1980’s. He was an associate Professor at the International Islamic University Malaysia, which is closely aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood. He was an advisor for a journal – United Association for Studies and Research – which has close ties to Hamas. He was a Research Director for the International Institute of Islamic Thought, part of the US Muslim Brotherhood. He was a founding member of the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy, also part of the Brotherhood and which has close ties to the US State Department. He was the Executive Director of the Islamic Society of North America, an important Brotherhood organization. He later became the Communications Director.

Dr. Safi was an unindicted co-conspirator in the indictment of Palestinian jihadist, Sami Al-Arian.

Interestingly, he was training US troops in Fort Hood who were about to deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan and was in that role when Nidal Hassan murdered 13 and injured 30 in a jihad.

Safi is or was also one of only two agents who endorse military chaplains for the Pentagon.

He now is a leading member of the Syrian National Council (SNC), a Syrian rebel group led by the Muslim Brotherhood.

The SNC has been putting liberals up front to cover for the fact that they are the Brotherhood, according to Breitbart.

Safi was a top Pentagon advisor and a trainer and is now a leader of the SNC, one of the most vicious Brotherhood factions in the world.

In December 2012, the Brotherhood was given top security clearance by the Obama administration.

Listen to Rep. Louie Gohmert question Janet Napolitano about Elibiarry and his top security clearance:

In December 2011, the Obama administration picked a Jew-hating zealot, al-Qaradawi, to mediate between the Taliban and the Afghan government. Obama wanted a face-saving way out of Afghanistan and decided to negotiate with the “good” Taliban.

A Muslim Brotherhood operative, al-Qaradawi was banned from entering the United Kingdom because he is a terrorist. He is the cleric who declared a Fatwa on Qaddafi, which coincided with our own version of a Fatwa on Gaddafi.

Al-Qaradawi, an 84 year old Egyptian, is a Jihadist cleric who was looking for lands to spread his particularly virulent form of Islam, which makes him an even odder choice as a negotiator.

Al-Qaradawi is committed to spreading Islam throughout the world but believes it can be done peacefully. Der Spiegel described al-Qaradawi as “the father figure of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood.”He has referred to Hamas as his brothers and hopes to rid Jerusalem of Jews.

Then there is Huma Abedin, former top aide to Hillary Clinton, who has three family members – at least – in the Muslim Brotherhood – her late father, her brother and her mother.

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have been strong supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, demanding that the Egyptian government give the Brotherhood a seat at the table. Obama gave tanks and planes to the Brotherhood under Morsi.

In a 60 Minutes interview in early 2013, Obama and Hillary took credit for the events in Egypt:

Steve Kroft: The biggest criticism of this team in the U.S. foreign policy from your political opposition has been what they say is an abdication of the United States on the world stage, sort of a reluctance to become involved in another entanglement, an unwillingness or what seems/appears to be an unwillingness to gauge big issues. Syria, for example.

President Obama: Yeah, well–

Steve Kroft: I mean, that–

President Obama: Well, Muammar Qaddafi probably does not agree with that assessment, or at least if he was around, he wouldn’t agree with that assessment. Obviously, you know, we helped to put together and lay the groundwork for liberating Libya. You know, when it comes to Egypt, I think, had it not been for the leadership we showed, you might have seen a different outcome there. But also understanding that we do nobody a service when we leap before we look. Where we, you know, take on things without having thought through all the consequences of it. And Syria’s a classic example of where our involvement, we want to make sure that not only does it enhance U.S. security, but also that it is doing right by the people of Syria and neighbors like Israel that are going to be profoundly affected by it. And so it’s true sometimes that we don’t just shoot from the hip.

Their lack of success in these regions isn’t even debatable if one is honest.

The problem is that the Brotherhood is not interested in a role, they want full control. They also have a ten-year plan to infiltrate the U.S. government with the express purpose of destroying our way of life. Whether these particular advisers are innocent or not is unclear, however, why are we risking it? Don’t we have some better options for these positions?
