The Jihadists At CPAC

By Greg L | 6 February 2011 | National Politics, Patriotism | 12 Comments

The annual CPAC kicks off next weekend in DC, typically featuring some of the biggest names in conservative politics today.  It’s not someplace you’d expect to see people associated with Islamic extremism and convicted terrorists, but in a nod to intellectual diversity participants will be able to learn about faith and religion from folks who are on record for defending the philosophy that murdering innocent people in the name of Mohammed is a good idea.

So far we haven’t seen John Boehner or Michelle Bachman exactly endorse these ideas, but their willing participation in a program that includes jihadist radicals does make one wonder.

The CPAC program lists the following presentation on Friday, February 11th at 1:00PM:

The Importance of Faith & Religious Liberty in the US & Abroad – Jackson Room
Sponsored by Muslims for America (2 hours)
Marshall Breger, Catholic University Law Center; Dr. Jennifer Bryson, Witherspoon Institute;
Muhamad Elibiary, Freedom & Justice Foundation; Deal Hudson, Catholic Advocate
Mod: Suhail Khan, Conservative Inclusion Coalition

Muhammed Elibiary was appointed by Janet Napolitano to a position in the Obama Administration’s Homeland Security Advisory Council last September, possibly because he shares a disdain with Obama for terrorism prosecutions and thinks highly of Sayyid Qutb, the intellectual hero of Al-Quaida and the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Washington Times has spoken out quite forcefully against Elibiary, which makes his prominent role at CPAC the result of either terrifically sloppy scheduling, or another testament to the horrifically damaging influence of Grover Norquist on the conservative movement.

In December 2004, Mr. Elibiary spoke at a conference honoring the life and works of the “great Islamic visionary,” Iran‘s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. In 2008, Mr. Elibiary denounced the conviction of Hamas-connected members of the Holy Land Foundation for material support of terrorism. Most alarmingly, Mr. Elibiary is an admirer of the work of Sayyid Qutb, the intellectual and spiritual godfather of modern jihadism. Mr. Elibiary argues that Qutb is greatly misunderstood. “Many Westerners who’ve read Qutb‘s and many others’ work,” Mr. Elibiary wrote, “see the potential for a strong spiritual rebirth that’s truly ecumenical allowing all faiths practiced in America to enrich us and motivate us to serve God better by serving our fellow man more.”

Qutb isn’t misunderstood.  He’s the acknowledged philosophical founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, who argued for violent jihad against not just westerners, but even against other Muslims.

The participation by Suhail Khan may even be more disturbing, as if having a Khomeni apologist speak at CPAC wasn’t bad enough.

Before 9/11, as White House gatekeeper to the Muslim community, [Khan] helped facilitate a White House meeting with Sami al-Arian, even though al-Arian had been under FBI investigation (al-Arian subsequently served time for terrorism and remains under house arrest for refusing to testify in a related terror case). As a Hill staffer in the mid-1990s, moreover, Mr. Khan convinced then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich to reserve a room in the Capitol for Muslims to pray. Consequently, according to Fox News, a parade of extremists — including cleric Anwar Awlaki, who the U.S. government now hopes to assassinate for his terrorist work for al-Qaida — led prayers and spoke there. (source: Who is Suhail Khan? by Paul Sperry)

Here’s a guy who has publicly extolled the virtues of those who are killed as they wage jihad against the unbelievers, had close ties with several convicted terrorists, and is the first-born son of one of the founding members of the Muslim Brotherhood whose mosque has raised money for Hamas.  Yet he’s advertised as a speaker at CPAC, supposedly to discuss “faith and religious liberty.”

Every speaker at CPAC should be asked to explain why they’re sharing the stage with radical islamists like these, and why their willing to lend their credibility in support of jihadists with ties to terrorism.  It’s not enough for them to claim ignorance, they and their staff have had plenty of time to review the list of speakers and most certainly have done so.  Every one of these folks should have to explain their decision to be a part of this: Rep. Michele Bachmann, Gov. Haley Barbour, Gov. Mitch Daniels, Newt Gingrich, Sen. Mike Lee, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Rep. Ron Paul, Sen. Rand Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Gov. Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Rep. Paul Ryan, Rick Santorum, Sen. John Thune and Rep. Allen West.

    Don’t start hatin so fast. They hate homosexuality; so do you. They hate women in the military and having any say about their reproductive rights; so do you. They go insane when someone questions their faith; so do you. They take things into their own hands when their government doesn’t listen to them; so do you. Replace Islam with Christianity in your post and, by golly, you got yourself a bunch of real conservatives.

    I hope conservatives boycott CPAC this year. They might
    not care but I plan to let them know what I think about this.

    It’s all about political correctness and it is destroying our country.

    Conservatives don’t murder innocent people, and Christians do not murder people for apostasy. You really need to get a handle on this hostility to Christianity. It doesn’t reflect well on you.

    Not only are there moozlems at CPAC but there are homos as well. All true conservatives are staying away to avoid getting homo cooties on them.

    Seriously though. Are you really regurgitating the understanding (or more properly MISunderstanding) of the Islamic world as articulated by Gaffney and Beck and the other assorted nuts on the fringe?

    Combined with your stuff about hispanics it can’t surprise you when people conclude you have a problem with brown people.

    1. What are the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood?

    It must be remembered that at its heart, the Muslim Brotherhood is a covert organization albeit with a public face and there is discordance between its public and private positions. Although the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, along with the whole of the Global Muslim Brotherhood network, proclaims it support for democracy, the motto of the organization remains as it always has been:

    - Allah is our objective.

    - The Prophet is our leader.

    - Qur’an is our law.

    - Jihad is our way.

    - Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.

    In practical terms, the Brotherhood attempts to gain as much influence for itself as it is able, presumably in the service of its long term vision. Its ability to gain power and influence varies from country to country according to the conditions “on the ground.” That said, its has already been noted that the Global Muslim Brotherhood is a covert organization at its heart and much remains to be learned about its true nature. For example, a secret document unearthed in a U.S. terrorism trial revealed the thinking of a senior Global Muslim Brotherhood leader close to Sheikh Youssef Qaradawi, the most important leader in the global Muslim Brotherhood network who lives in Qatar, and which said:

    The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions

    Murder is not a foundational plank of being conservative OR Christian.

    It is, however, a fundamental part of islam. It is taught, supported, financed and defended by secular muslims, orthodox muslims, extremist muslims and muslim clerics.

    Murder is the answer for homosexuality, apostasy, adultery, personal insults (honor killings) and any other perceived slight to a muslim. Since these are bedrock principles of the left, one would think islam would put the fear of God into the left - but instead, it is more important for the left to make idiotic and childish projections.

    Islam is the only religion in the world with a need for a word such as jihad.

    The only group in the history of the world with a death record exceeding that of the moslem faith is communism.

    Small wonder the left supports islam like they do….

    One major difference between Islam and Christianity is Christians believe God created man with a free will. And, God will be the judge in the end. It appears that Muslims will be the judges here on earth if any Muslim does not live according to the writings of the Qur’an. Hence the ‘mercy killings’, stoning, dismemberment, etc.
