The Obama administration is covertly recruiting
Muslims to work at the State Department as Foreign Service officers
representing the United States in one of 265 American embassies,
consulates and diplomatic missions worldwide.
It appears to be part of the administration’s Muslim outreach effort,
which includes a variety of controversial moves. Among them Homeland
Security meetings with extremist Islamic organizations, sending an
America-bashing mosque leader (Feisal Abdul Rauf) who blames U.S.
foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks on a Middle Eastern outreach mission
and revamping the way federal agents are trained to combat terrorism by
eliminating all materials that shed a negative light on Muslims.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton even signed a special order to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties long banned them from the U.S.
Now comes news of a secretive State Department campaign, discovered
in the course of a Judicial Watch investigation, to add Muslims to its
roster. Presumably, the new recruits will be deployed around the globe
to help the agency fulfill its mission of promoting the country”s
international relations. The campaign seems to be headed by Mark Ward, the Deputy Special Coordinator in the State Department’s Office of Middle East Transition.
Ward held a 90-minute seminar at a recent convention sponsored by two
groups””Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North
America (ICNA)””with known ties to radical Islam. Both nonprofits are
associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is known as the parent organization of Hamas and al Qaeda. In fact, the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports that MAS was founded as the U.S. chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood which strives to indoctrinate the world with Islamic Sharia law.
Yet there was a U.S. State Department official, side by side at a radical Islamic powwow in Chicago with a number of speakers who advocate violent jihad.
Among them was Kifah Mustapha, a fundraiser at terrorist organization
(Holy Land Foundation) convicted of funneling millions to Hamas and
Jamal Badawi, a MAS founder who praised the jihad of Gaza terrorists
during a speech titled “Understanding Jihad and Martyrdom.”
