Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) scheduled briefing with al-Qaeda-linked group

Alan Grayson

This shouldn’t surprise anyone. The Democrats have for years now been focused on “Islamophobia” and building relationships with supposedly “moderate” Muslims, without having any way to discern whether the Muslims they were dealing with were “extremist” or “moderate,” since they deny the reality of how jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify and assume that it’s a Religion of Peace. The Republicans, of course, are no better.

“Rep. Alan Grayson Slammed for Scheduled Briefing With al Qaeda Linked Group,” from the Washington Free Beacon, January 6:

A GOP challenger to Rep. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.) is blasting the Democratic congressman for hosting a Capitol Hill briefing with a human rights group run by a designated al Qaeda terrorist.

A representative from Geneva-based NGO Al Karama was scheduled to participate in the Nov. 19 briefing on U.S. drone policy with Reps. Grayson, Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), and Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.), the Washington Free Beacon first reported Monday. The representative was unable to attend because of reported visa issues.

Al Karama’s president and founder Abdul Rahman Naimi was designated as a global terrorist and al Qaeda financier by the U.S. Treasury Department in December.

Jorge Bonilla, a Republican running for Grayson’s seat in Florida’s 9th district, called the briefing a “slap in the face to the brave men and women who have served in the Global War On Terror,” according to a statement published by the National Review

Grayson was reelected to congress in 2012, after losing a prior seat in 2010. He drew fire during his 2010 campaign when he released an ad calling his GOP opponent Daniel Webster “Taliban Dan.” The ad was widely criticized by fact-checkers as misleading.

    Just like the politicians who met Hitler in the 30s and who DIDN’T READ A SINGLE WORD OF HITLER’S MEIN KAMPF OR ONE OF HIS SPEECHES…and yet they considered themselves ‘experts’…like Chamberlain.

    Hitler played them like violins.

    The Muzzies are laughing at such clueless buffoons.

    “Human rights group run by a designated al Qaeda terrorist””I can only imagine what sort of “human rights” group this is. Is Greyson moronically credulous, or a deliberate enabler of evil?

    Ah, Barbara Le”my own dhimmi “representative”. I can see where this “briefing” is going”it will be a call to end even the sporadic defense we are currently making against Jihad.

    Surprise, surprise.

    By the way, “Al Karama” means “dignity”.

    And we all know what “dignity” means for pious Mohammedans”Muslim supremacism.

    Here’s some predictable Taqiyya from Al Karama:

    Al Karama executive director Mourad Dhina said he was unsurprised the State Department turned down Ahmady’s visa request.

    “To be frank, it was not a big surprise to us, because obviously the report [that Al Karama had recently published on U.S. drone strikes in Yemen and that Ahmady was going to present] was not something to be welcomed by the U.S. government,” Dhina said. “We hoped that Mr. Ahmady would have been able to come and present the thing and debate things with whoever would be interested in debating that.”

    But all of you ARE MISSING THE POINT.

    CAPS FOR EMPHASIS NOT YELLING.

    THE MEETING WAS SCHEDULED/HELD IN NOV.

    ABDUL RAHMAN NAIMI WAS NOT DECLARED A TERRORIST UNTIL DEC.

    DOES ONE EXPECT MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO BE ABLE TO FORESEE THE FUTURE? (OTHER THEN THEIR RE-ELECTIONS AND HOW MUCH THEY CAN STEAL-ONE WAY OR ANOTHER).

    (SARCASM).

    Grayson the Pied Piper?

    Aren’t MOST of the Democrats Pied Pipers? And also clueless John McCain who thought that Al Qaeda allies in Syria were ‘moderates’!

    Can’t politicians get better intel than that?

    Are they simply lazy?

    I find it hard to believe that there was a sudden revelation that this pig was a terrorist.

    Jay G, this might indeed be the point if the only figure in question was Abdul Rahmen himself.

    But Al Karama is *replete* with ties to Jihad terror.

    From the article I linked to, above:

    “Mohammad Al Ahmady, the Yemen director for Geneva-based NGO Al Karama, was expected to brief Reps. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.), Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), and Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) the morning of the Nov. 19, according to press release from Grayson’s office.

    “Ahmady, who also serves as a top official in an al Qaeda-linked Yemeni political party, did not attend because of visa issues. The State Department said it could not comment on visa matters.

    “Several Al Karama officials have faced terrorism allegations. Al Karama’s founder and current president Abdul Rahman Naimi was designated as a terrorist and al Qaeda supporter by the U.S. Treasury Department in December, along with the group’s Yemen representative Abdulwahab Al-Humayqani. Al Karama’s legal director, Rachid Mesli, is currently wanted for terrorism charges in Algeria.”

    So, we’re faced with the usual choices”either our representatives are woefully ignorant, or else they know about some of these links to Jihad terror and simply don’t care. Given the congress people in question, it’s probably some of both.

    But the idea that they had good reason to believe that Abdul Rahmen was nothing more than a fine fellow running a charity right up until the moment the US Treasury Department formally designated him a terrorist simply isn’t plausible.
