— Conservative principles? Not so much. CPAC and Matthews, not such strange bedfellows, eh? Much thanks to the individual who started this petition in support of Spencer and me. Please consider signing here.
Over at MSNBC: "This "Weak" in Conspiracy":
[…] There is one snub that might seem logical to those who want CPAC to
avoid unappealing headlines: anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller. Geller
has hosted unofficial events at CPAC, where she warns attendees of the
potential dangers of Sharia law and jihad infiltration right here in the
United States. Geller told conservative radio host Janet Mefferd, “This year I could not get an event, I was banned.”
Ah, but why was she banned, you may ask. Turns out, she
thinks Islamic extremists have struck at CPAC. According to Geller, she
was excluded by “the influence of what can only be described as Muslim
Brotherhood facilitators or operatives.”
(If CPAC is looking for a lively debate, Geller could face off with
Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. Is the Muslim Brotherhood
infiltrating the Obama administration, as Bachmann has alleged, or the Conservative Political Action conference? Or both!)
Geller has a name in mind for who is leading the Muslim Brotherhood
charge within CPAC. Hint: in his speech at CPAC last year, the
individual had this advice for GOP voters: “Pick a Republican with
enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United
States.” (Translation: don’t worry if you don’t agree with everything
Mitt Romney says. As long as he’ll cut taxes, we’re good.) That’s right,
it’s anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist (whose wife is a Muslim).
Take a look at the Hardball Sideshow for the full dose of right vs. right.
Of course, Chris Matthews pulls two sentences out of my radio
interview — no mention of CPAC's Grover Norquist, Suhail Khan and their
close ties to America's largest financial Al Qaeda courier, Abdurrahman Alamoudi. These checks were made out to Grover Norquist's organization, The Islamic Institute, from Alamoudi:
According to the Investigative Project on Terrorism:
Grover Norquist hoped to…harness votes from the country’s growing Muslim population by creating the Islamic Free Market Institute in 1998. He did so with significant financial help
from Abdurahman Alamoudi, then one of America’s most influential Muslim
activists and head of the American Muslim Council. Today, Alamoudi is serving a 23-year prison sentence after admitting
to illegal transactions with Libya and being part of a plot to
assassinate the then-Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. Alamoudi was also
found to be a long time secret financial courier for Al Qaeda while at
the same time being routinely invited to the Clinton White House for
receptions and meetings.
Norquist, who previously has denied any suggestion that his work
facilitated any wrongdoing, not only introduced Alamoudi to Washington
GOP power circles but also Sammy Al Arian, whom prosecutors arrested
earlier this year for alleged terrorist activities. Federal
law-enforcement sources say they are focusing on some of Norquist’s
associates and financial ties to terrorist groups.
Alamoudi ran, directed, founded or funded at least 15 Muslim
political-action and charitable groups that have taken over the public
voice of Islamic Americans. Through a mix of civil-rights complaints,
Old Left-style political coalitions and sheer persistence, Alamoudi
helped inch the image of U.S.-based Islamists toward the political
mainstream and induced politicians to embrace his organizations. He
sought to secure the support first of the Clinton administration in
seeking to repeal certain antiterrorist laws, but when Bill Clinton
failed to deliver, Alamoudi defected to Bush, then governor of Texas.
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.[…]
Canceled checks obtained by Insight show Alamoudi provided seed money to start a GOP-oriented Muslim group called the Islamic Institute,
which Norquist originally chaired and now is led by former Alamoudi
aide and former AMC staffer Khaled Saffuri. A White House memo obtained
by Insight prepared for coordinating Muslim and Arab-American
“public-liaison” events with the White House
shows that the Islamic Institute was instrumental in establishing the
connection. The memo, from early 2001, provides lists of invitees and
the name, date of birth and Social Security number of each. Norquist,
as the first chairman of the Islamic Institute, tops the list.
Alamoudi and others, including Norquist, tried to keep critics at bay by branding them as “racists” and “bigots.”
