Keep this 'moderate' Muslim in jail Pamela Geller, WND
The feds want to cut the 23-year prison sentence of a Hamas-linked one-time leading U.S. "moderate" Muslim. He may shortly be released from federal prison, and as an American citizen, he can stay in this country.
Islamic supremacist Abdurahman Alamoudi is Grover Norquist's good buddy and partner. He has been in jail since 2003, after pleading guilty to illegal dealings with Libya and to being paid over $500,000 (in cash) by Libyan officials as part of an al-Qaida assassination plot against the Saudi king (a longtime target of Islamic jihadists for his Islamic laxity and alliance with the U.S.).
Now, federal prosecutors are asking a judge to cut Alamoudi's prison term. According to the Associated Press, "the documents explaining why prosecutors want to cut Alamoudi's sentence are under seal, but such reductions are allowed only when a defendant provides substantial assistance to the government." What kind of assistance? Who determined its value? Who is behind this? His release could be connected to the Obama administration's plan to open up talks with the Muslim Brotherhood, as a gesture to show the Brotherhood Obama's good will.
Back in 2009, Insight magazine wrote that "Norquist was Alamoudi's most influential Washington facilitator," who "introduced Alamoudi to Washington GOP power circles." Alamoudi "ran, directed, founded or funded at least 15 Muslim political-action and charitable groups" which "helped inch the image of U.S.-based Islamists toward the political mainstream and induced politicians to embrace his organizations," including Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. "Alamoudi and other Muslim leaders met with Bush in Austin in July , offering to support his bid for the White House in exchange for Bush's commitment to repeal certain antiterrorist laws."
Alamoudi's influence was huge. He positioned a Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood front group, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), to approve Muslim chaplains for the U.S. military and prison system. ISNA still has that privilege.
