Obama administration tracking Muslim candidates for military, Pentagon positions

Special to WorldTribune.com
WASHINGTON — The administration of President Barack Obama has been identifying Muslims in the military in an effort to encourage their presence.
Officials said the Defense Department has been keeping records and tracking Muslims. They said the administration sought to attract Muslims both to the military and to the Pentagon.

“Our nation and our entire military family remain stronger because of
the service and sacrifice of people of all faiths, including the thousands
of patriotic Muslim Americans who have served and still serve in this long
period of war,” Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work said last week.
The U.S. military currently has 4,500 uniformed Muslims, the Pentagon said on
July 3. It was not clear how the Pentagon identified the Muslims. The department
has not given statistics on members of other religious faiths.
In 2009, a U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, shouting “God is great,”
opened fire and killed 13 of his colleagues. Later, authorities acknowledged
that Hasan, a psychiatrist, was linked to Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.
Critics have accused the administration of promoting Islam as the
preferential faith in the United States. Over the last year, a senior
adviser to the Homeland Security Department, Mohamed Elibiary, issued a
statement that said the U.S. Constitution was “Islamically compliant” and
that a Muslim caliphate was “inevitable.”
“I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country,” Elibiary
said in a Twitter post on June 30.
On July 3, Work attended the annual Pentagon ceremony of Iftar, or the evening dinner after a day-long fast that continues throughout the Muslim month of Ramadan. The Pentagon has been conducting the ceremony since 1998 in commemoration of Islam.
“Tonight is an opportunity for people of different faiths to come
together in the spirit of respect and tolerance to share the richness of our
beliefs and to enjoy the traditions of hospitality that are such an
important part of the Muslim community,” Work said.
The Pentagon, which hired Saudi-sponsored groups to raise awareness, has
reported the employment of 1,000 Muslims. Officials said they included
civilians and contractors for the Defense Department.
In his address, Work quoted Obama as saying that Ramadan reminded Americans of the principles of peace, justice and equality. The deputy
secretary also urged those at the Iftar to remember their responsibility to
the defense of the United States.
“Our country’s founders understood in a visceral way [that] the best way
to honor the place of faith in the lives of all Americans was to fight for
justice and equality as well as liberty and freedom,” Work said. “That is
exactly what the men and women both in and out of uniform who serve in the
Department of Defense do every single day. They are safeguarding the very
ideals deemed so precious by our founding fathers.”

    Okay-where’s the part of the program where CHRISTIANITY gets some respect and tolerance? So far,I haven’t seen that yet.

     
    • Christianity gets some respect???? well now America founded as a Christian nation, has chosen over the last 2-3generations that God is not relevant. this muslim take over was funded by Christians in the form of “foreign aid” which was nothing more than fleecing themselves to give their funds to the muslims which in turn leveraged these funds against the USA. rewarding those that helped them fleece the “Christians”. Christians have gotten fat and lazy, accepting welfare, promoting homosexuality, aborting their babies, watching tv while the constitution that was protecting them was torn asunder. forsaking God in favor of antichrist federal “freedom”, what respect should be granted such for their foolish choices and behavior? it is written Judgement begins in the house of God. turning the other cheek does not mean standing on your head and screaming out screw me; God is just, and He answers prayers. the prayer of the American Christian “take my wool, eat my children, only leave me grass to eat”. God has sent a muslim devil to answer the sheoples prayers. respect is earned not given. pray tell what respect Christian America has earned?

       
  2. How stupid can this administration get? I know, as a born-again Christian I am not suppose to call anyone stupid, but I just can’t help. What part of the muslim/islamist/terriorist doctrine, as outlined in the koran, that says to kill ALL infidels, even their own muslim brothers and sisters if they do not ‘act right’, does this administration not get? It blows my mind. Having said that, we are in the last days and the world events of the Book of Daniel is upon us with the events of the Book of Revelations to follow. May the Lord come quickly.

     
  3. This is terrible news, Kelleigh. I am speechless.
    Thank you for informing us.

     
  4. And we see how well it worked out having stark raving psyco Muslim Psychiatrist kill and maim numerous our troops on one of our own bases–yet the government claims this to only be . . . work place violence! The poor individuals left alive and their families were denied “war time compensation.” I’ll just bet this scenario will play out again, sometime, some where. It sickens me! I whole heartedly agree, we have financed the Muslims will all our “foreign aid.” Now Obama is funding Iran to the tune of one half billion dollars per months in foreign aid–where did all that money come from??? Oh! Just add it to the debt our children will be crippled with paying.

     
  5. Kelleigh . . . this is a wonderful, informative post. Thank you.

     
  6. Reblogged this on Patriotic Gofer and commented:
    The enemy within … and not even trying to hide!
    People had best wake up and demand that this islamic disease be removed from the US, forcefully if necessary.

     
  7. If I don’t soon see a concerted effort on the part of the repubelicans to stop this treasonous fraud in his tracks, they can forget my vote in 2016 – assuming that election will even take place.

  8. According to a family member who works in Homeland Security…and several recent investigative reports on this very subject—Obama has ALREADY loaded Homeland “Security” with top-end Muslim “administrators.” Doesn’t it sound like an oxymoron…”Muslims running our Homeland Security?”

     
  9. Watch, it’ll be mandatory soon…
