Hillary Clinton to Give Keynote at CSID;
Muslim Brotherhood Leader Also To Be In Attendance
The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report
According to the website of the Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID), Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to give the keynote address at the organization’s 10th annual conference on May 5th. Also scheduled to attend the conference as a panelist and/or moderator is Dr. Kemal Al-Helbawy, a leader in the global Muslim Brotherhood who has defended the terrorist targeting of Israeli children and who in 1996 was denied entrance into the U.S.

CSID was founded in 1998 largely by the efforts of Georgetown University academic Dr. Esposito who, during the 1990s, had served in the State Department as a “foreign affairs analyst.”

Many members of the early CSID board were associated with the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), the American Muslim Council, and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).

For example, past CSID board members included Jamal Barzinji and Taha Al-Alwani, both important Brotherhood leaders who are closely associated with the now defunct SAAR Foundation, still under investigation by the U.S. government. Both Barzinji and Al-Alwani helped to establish many of the most important U.S. Brotherhood organizations. The current CSID Vice-Chair, Antony Sullivan, has many ties to U.S. Brotherhood groups including the Association of Muslim Social Scientists (AMSS), the United Association for Studies and Research (USAR), and the Circle of Tradition and Progress (COTP), a group whose other founding members included Youssef Qaradawi, the most important leader of the global Muslim Brotherhood.

From its inception, CSID has argued that the U.S. government should support Islamist movements in foreign countries and has received financial support from the National Endowment for Democracy and the United States Institute of Peace.

Apparently we have some pretty lousy leaders in our government, huh? “Support Islamist movements . . .” Do they have the slightest clue that that means they’re supporting their own demise?

There are a considerable number of facts in this one about who’s connected to what terrorist organization, and of course why Hillary C. should NOT attend. The same is true for the one below . . . but note the difference. In the story below, not one “terrorist connection” is either a terrorist, or a terrorist organization.

Below, CAIR simply writes a vicious screed against the presenters. In the story above, facts are laid out as they should be: from the records.

CAIR: FL House GOP Leader Linked to Anti-Islam Hate Fest
The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on the leader of that state's House Republicans to disassociate himself from an upcoming anti-Islam conference backed by a "motley collection of Islamophobes and Muslim-bashers."

CAIR said Rep. Adam Hasner is on the "host committee" for the April 27 conference in Delray Beach, Fla., featuring Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders. Wilders was recently denied entry to Britain because of his extreme anti-Muslim views, including urging that the Quran, Islam's revealed text, be banned.

Don’t you just love the biased title above? “Anti-Islam Hate Fest”? The irony is completely lost on these liars that one of the presenters included in the “motley collection” has a Web site with the name of Americans Against Hate.

This is how CAIR describes itself:
“America's largest Muslim civil liberties group, has 35 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.”

Read the whole article. See if you can find one line in it that has any reference to the people it castigates that shows these people to be wrong in their understanding or words about Islam. Heck, find one line in it about Islam --- it's mission! --- actually.

Negative Messages Creating Ill-will [with whom, I ask?], Gilani Tells US
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani criticised the United States and its Western allies on Monday for creating “ill-will” about Pakistan and cautioned Washington against attaching strings to its assistance package . . . [which are: requiring Pakistan to pledge it would not support militancy and terrorist activities targeting India and would provide U.S. investigators access to people accused of nuclear proliferation].

The prime minister called for a partnership based on “mutual respect and trust” [Oh, thank you, Mr. BHusseinO! for giving them words to use against us!] and emphasised that if the assistance package came with conditions [which are: requiring Pakistan to pledge it would not support militancy and terrorist activities targeting India and would provide U.S. investigators access to people accused of nuclear proliferation], it would fail to achieve its objectives [which are . . .?]

Senator Kerry will [immediately groveled to?] introduce a bill in the U.S. Senate with Senator Lugar, proposing tripling of non-military help for Pakistan to $1.5 billion every year for 10 years.

This story struck me as so insanely nuts I couldn’t resist putting it in. The people we are helping are telling us how they’ll accept the help, and it certainly isn’t with thanks and gratefulness.
