Obama Administration Appoints Pro-Terror Islamist To Represent United States At Human Rights Conference


Washington Free Beacon – “Jewish leaders expressed outrage Friday over the State Department’s praise for, and defense of, a controversial Muslim leader who has defended terrorist groups and suggested that Israel may have been responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Salam al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), was picked to represent the United States government at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe’s (OSCE) annual 10-day human rights conference, the Human Dimension Implementation Meetings (HDIM).

Al-Marayati’s well-known anti-Israel bona fides prompted Jewish leaders and others to express outrage over the Obama administration’s selection.

‘It is regrettable that someone with such distorted, conspiratorial views—even with a lackluster apology—is delegated by our government to represent our country abroad,’ the Anti-Defamation League said in a statement to the Free Beacon.

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, argued that the State Department is showing inconsistency by touting an individual who has defended the militant groups Hezbollah and Hamas, both of which are designated by the U.S. as terrorist organizations.

‘One would assume that individuals selected to represent the United States at an international human rights conclave would share our government’s longstanding policy that Hamas and Hezbollah are dangerous terrorist organizations,’ Cooper told the Free Beacon. ‘But Mr. Salam al-Marayati and his organization are long-time advocates that these deadly terror groups be removed from the U.S. terrorist list.’

‘With terrorism continuing to roil the Middle East,’ Cooper added, ‘the question is why the U.S. State Department would say he is ‘highly credible’?’

Josh Block, a former Clinton administration official who now serves as CEO of The Israel Project, said the State Department’s defense of al-Marayati lacks credibility.

‘That statement, defending a person who is clearly a terrorist sympathizer and deeply hostile to Israel, calls into question the credibility of the person who gave it, and it raises a very serious question: What exactly is the U.S. government saying here?’ Block asked.” Read more.

Flashback: Mrs. Clinton And Mr. Obama, It’s Time To Wake Up And Smell The Global Jihad – “Madam secretary, it is time for you and your boss to wake up and smell the global jihad. There are people in this world—and not a small number of them—who share the vision bin Laden had and have the will and means to act. No amount of apologizing for America, embracing our adversaries or mistreating our allies will change that… While the groups are diverse and at times antagonistic toward each other, their hatred of America unites them, and they work toward a generally common goal.” Read more.

    You know, this evil man stated exactly what he would do when elected. And he did just that! He said he would FUNDAMENTALY change America. Well he did just that, him and his evil crony’s set about immediately to change history, our constitution values, our laws, he ruined our health care, and he changed the definition of words ie human rights. That has been completely changed. It used to mean that oppression,torture, rape, brutal killings, abuse of women, children and elderly would not be tolerated. Now it means just the oppisite. They have twisted it so bad, that we have to worry about our freedom of speech, they have accused Israel of human rights violations for defending itself. It’s not a human rights issue to beat,rape,torture women,children and the elderly. It’s evidently ok to murder our ambassador’s. Reminds you of Daniel’s description doesn’t it.
