David Horowitz Brilliantly Exposes Muslim Student's True Intentions – UC San Diego


This student provides the perfect representation of Muslim perspectives.
From the UC San Diego Muslim Student Association (MSA) web page:
“MSA at UCSD was formed when students of Muslim culture and heritage formed the group to meet the specific needs of the underrepresented Muslim students, staff, and faculty, studying, working, and teaching at UCSD. Years later, under a much changed structure and membership, MSA at UCSD still serves the Muslim community with the same goals of minimizing under-representation and misrepresentation of our community
Recognizing that Muslims and those living in predominantly Muslim countries share a common heritage, MSA at UCSD strives to serve and represent these persons at the UCSD campus through educational, cultural, and social programs and activities. MSA at UCSD provides a social and cultural outlet for members of the Muslim community. Furthermore, recognizing that Muslims and their history, culture, and institutions are often misrepresented or dehumanized by orientalism and mainstream media sources, MSA at UCSD strives to increase the representation of Muslim perspectives at all levels of society, specifically at the university and stresses the fair and objective study of Islam through its programs and activities.”

Obama aids enemy Muslims: $ to Hamas; military contracts to Taliban/al-Qaeda

HamasHamas

On the afternoon of July 26, 2013, President Lucifer took advantage of it being Friday to pull a stunt.
As reported by The Washington Times, citing “national security interests,” Obama waived Congress’ ban on direct funding of the Palestinian Authority (PA), despite the PA’s ties to the terrorist organization Hamas. In so doing, Obama cleared the way for $500 million of U.S. taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars to be sent as “aid” to terrorists.
Now comes news that supporters of the brutal Taliban and the terrorist group al-Qaeda in Afghanistan have been getting U.S. military contracts! As my bud, FOTM’s Steve, would say: Bring me more duct tape ’cause my head is about to explode.

TalibanTaliban

Tony Capaccio reports for Bloomberg, July 29, 2013, that Obama administration officials, specifically the U.S. Army Suspension and Debarment Office (ASDO), are citing “due process rights” as a reason not to cancel the military contracts.
Worse still, according to John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, ASDO has declined to act in 43 such cases, saying “They may be enemies of the United States but that is not enough to keep them from getting government contracts.”
In a letter accompanying a 236-page quarterly report to Congress, Sopko said:
I am deeply troubled that the U.S. military can pursue, attack, and even kill terrorists and their supporters, but that some in the U.S. government believe we cannot prevent these same people from receiving a government contract. There appears to be a growing gap between the policy objectives of Washington and the reality of achieving them in Afghanistan, especially when the government must hire and oversee contractors to perform its mission.”

al Qaedaal-Qaeda

According to the report, Sopko’s agency “has found it impossible to confirm” the number of contracts awarded in a $32 million program to install barricades, bars or gratings in culverts at about 2,500 Afghan locations to prevent insurgents from placing roadside bombs. The explosives are the biggest killer of U.S. and Afghan troops. In other words —

The military contracts awarded to the Taliban and al-Qaeda include having them undertake installations to prevent the same Taliban and al-Qaeda from placing roadside bombs that kill our troops.

Did you get that?
The U.S. has 60,000 troops in Afghanistan, with plans to reduce the number to 34,000 by next February, although Obama hasn’t decided how many to keep in the country after 2014 to train Afghan forces and engage in anti-terrorist missions.
The Obama administration has requested $10.7 billion in Afghanistan’s “reconstruction” funding for fiscal 2014 to cover projects from improving local government to building roads and schools. But Sopko expressed pessimism that the U.S. can maintain effective oversight of billions of dollars in reconstruction spending as forces are withdrawn:
“Unless the U.S. government improves its contract-oversight policies and practices, far too much will be wasted. [The policy to create an effective Afghan Army, which has 185,287 troops] will remain hollow unless Washington pays equal attention to proper contracting and procurement activities to sustain those forces.”
As of March, 40,315 of the personnel working under Pentagon contracts in Afghanistan, or about 37%, were Afghan locals, according to Sopko’s report.
In another report, Sopko said $47 million that the U.S. Agency for International Development has spent on a program to stabilize Afghanistan before U.S. troop withdrawals, hasn’t dealt with the sources of instability. An audit showed that after 16 months, none of the agency’s essential program objectives have been reached and the money spent has mostly financed workshops and training sessions.
Sopko said: “It’s troubling that after 16 months, this program has not issued its first community grant. Rather, it has spent almost $50 million, about a quarter of the total program budget, on conferences, overhead and workshops.”

Civil war breaking out across Egypt

So much for the much-vaunted “Arab Spring” . . . .

Egyptians Pour Into Cairo, Alexandria Streets

by VOA News July 26, 2013

Violent clashes have broken out in Cairo and Alexandria, where tens of thousands of Egyptians took to the streets Friday in dueling rallies – one called by the military to show support for overturning the elected civilian government, the other called by the Muslim Brotherhood to reinforce its demand for the reinstatement of ousted president Mohamed Morsi.

EgyptNews agencies reported at least two people were killed in Alexandria, where supporters and opponents of ousted President Mohamed Morsi pelted each other with rocks. Video showed Muslim Brotherhood supporters firing bird shot at pro-government demonstrators who support the military and its interim government. Many others were reportedly injured.

In Cairo, Morsi supporters clashed in Tahrir Square with some of the thousands of people who answered Army chief Abdel Fattah el-Sissi‘s call for “all honorable Egyptians” to take to the streets to give him a mandate to fight “violence and terrorism.”

As Karim Hassan, one man in the pro-government throng, said, “We are here today in order to support the commander-in-chief of the Egyptian Armed Forces … and give him a green card [a go-ahead] to root out terrorism from Egypt. We can’t wait any longer; the country is burning.”

The demonstrations got under way as an Egyptian judge ordered Morsi to remain in custody for at least 15 more days. He has been held by the military in a secret location since July 3, when the army removed him from power.The official MENA news agency said authorities are investigating charges that Morsi conspired with the Hamas group to help himself and dozens of other Islamist leaders escape from prison during the 2011 uprising that toppled former President Hosni Mubarak. The Muslim Brotherhood has said local residents helped free the prisoners, and a spokesman said Friday that the latest word from the government was proof that Egypt is returning to the tight controls on the public that marked the Mubarak era.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri also rejected the accusations and challenged Egyptian authorities to provide evidence that Hamas intervened in Egypt’s internal affairs.

As they have on a daily basis, Morsi supporters massed Friday outside the Rabia el-Adawiya Mosque in Cairo’s Nasr City, a Brotherhood stronghold, calling for Morsi’s reinstatement.

Morsi’s presidency and his subsequent ouster have bitterly divided Egyptians who see this as a pivotal moment for the country’s future course. Many Islamists view General Sissi’s call for mass popular support as a prelude to a violent crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood.

Middle East scholar Fouad Ajami of the Hoover Institution said the phenomenon of rival protests has done nothing to resolve Egypt’s underlying political conflict, and has merely authorized Defense Minister Sissi to assume the role of a traditional Arab military ruler.”Pity Egypt when political life has to be adjudicated in the streets, or more precisely in the squares my square against your square, the size of my crowd against the size of your crowd,” Ajami said. “What is truly unique is we witnessed a man in authority, a uniformed man who summons the people to the streets and stokes the very protests that usually would unsettle republics.”

Poverty and other conditions that produced the “Arab Spring” rebellions in early 2011 still exist, Ajami said, and the Islamist movements that nourished rebellions will continue, even as the old guard tries to contain the discontent and repair Egypt.

World leaders are expressing increasing concern about the rising violence, polarization of Egyptian society and the army’s crackdown on Brotherhood leaders. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on all sides this week to exercise restraint, saying he supports the rights of all Egyptians to hold peaceful protests, and called on the Egyptian military to end “arbitrary arrests” and other forms of harassment.

The U.S. has also expressed its concern about Sissi’s calls for mass protests, and the Obama administration said it is delaying the delivery of four F-16 fighter jets to Egypt’s military. However, the White House also has refused to declare that the overthrow of the Cairo government was a coup — a designation that would require suspension of U.S. military and economic aid to Egypt.

The Egyptian military says it was obligated to remove Morsi, Egypt’s first elected president, in the midst of enormous, nationwide protests against his rule.

Dead man “Osama bin Laden” donates to Obama campaign

Frankenstorm Sandy is drowning out the already-lacking MSM coverage of Obama administration scandals (how convenient), so we on FOTM are doing our share to keep the focus on the POS and his criminality.

It’s happened, again.

Fictitious people are donating to the Obama election campaign. Again.

In 2008, it was Disney cartoon figure Mickey Mouse who donated $2,000 to the Obama campaign.

In 2012, it’s a dead man, Osama bin Laden, who’s donating to the Obama reelection campaign. Osama supposedly was killed on May 1, 2011, by Navy SEALS Team 6, and given a sea burial by the USS Carl Vinson.

Aaron Klein reports for WND, Oct. 30, 2012, that WND found a clever way to demonstrate how porous the Obama campaign is to illegal foreign donations.

Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address, “Osama bin Laden” has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama’s presidential re-election campaign. The “Bin Laden” donations were actually made by WND staff, included a listed occupation of “deceased terror chief” and a stated employer of “al-Qaida.”

“Bin Laden” is currently set up on the official campaign website to contribute more to Obama’s campaign. The name is also registered as a volunteer.

Since the “foreign” contribution was sent, “Bin Laden’s” email address has received several solicitations from Obama’s campaign asking for more donations.

The apparently foreign-based contributions were conducted as a test after a flurry of media reports described the ability of foreigners to donate to the Obama campaign but not to Mitt Romney’s site, which has placed safeguards against such efforts.

The acceptance of foreign contributions is strictly illegal under U.S. campaign finance law.

Even though WND did not conceal the source of its “Osama bin Laden” donation being a foreign source — from Pakistan, using a confirmed Pakistani IP address and proxy server — the Obama campaign accepted the illicit donation.

Upon clicking the “donate” button, WND staff selected the $15 amount and were taken to a page on the campaign website asking for a first and last name, city, state, zip code, email address and phone number.

The information submitted was: “Osama bin Laden, 911 Jihad Way, Abbottabad, CA 91101.” The website only has options for U.S. states and zip codes, and there is no mechanism in place on Obama’s website to verify the individual is actually located in that state or zip code, or even in the U.S.

After clicking “next,” the website asked for an employer, occupation and a password to set up future donations. WND staff entered the occupation as “deceased terror chief” and the employer as “al-Qaida.”

The transaction was made last Friday with the use of a disposable credit card. The website did not require the card’s security code.

The Obama campaign website immediately accepted the contribution even though it was made from a Pakistani IP address and despite the nonexistent street name and city information.

An automated email was immediately sent from Rufus Gifford, national finance director of Obama for America, thanking “Osama” for the contribution. The $15 was debited from the disposable card.

To test if the first donation was an oversight, WND then made a second donation of $5 the following day using the “Bin Laden” account and the same Pakistani IP address.

Screenshot of Pakistani IP address

WND has received confirmation from the credit card company that the purchase went through and the $5 was deducted from the disposable card.

From the time of the first donation until today, the Obama campaign sent nine more emails to the bin Laden Gmail account soliciting more donations. One email signed by Michelle Obama was titled “Barack is getting outraised. You’re one of the campaign’s most committed supporters. Please make a donation of $19 or whatever you can today.”

The donations from a Pakistani IP address are sure to raise further questions about the measures in place to block such donations.

Cleta Mitchell, a Republican campaign finance attorney, told WND there were many documented cases of illegal foreign contributions to the Obama campaign in 2008 that were “wholly ignored by the Federal Election Commission and the Obama Department of Justice. I have been hearing the same stories from many sources during this campaign as well. Every other campaign has safeguards against these illegal transactions – every campaign except the Obama campaign.”

In 2008, WND reported two Palestinian brothers inside the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip donated $29,521.54 to Obama’s first presidential campaign. After the report, the campaign reportedly returned the donations.

Last week, the New York Post reported a British citizen, Chris Walker, was able to make two $5 donations through Obama’s campaign website, while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney online funds was rejected.

The Post noted how the Federal Election Commission posted data showing Obama’s campaign took in more than $2 million from donors who provided no ZIP code or incomplete ZIP codes.

The non-profit Government Accountability Institute recently released a report alleging Obama’s campaign had solicited foreigners for political donations through its social media websites. As the Daily Caller reported, a statement accompanied the GAI’s report from former U.S. Attorney Ken Sukhia noting that 68% of traffic to BarackObama.com comes from foreign users, all of whom are redirected to a fundraising page operated by the president’s re-election campaign. Obama.com was registered in September 2008 to Robert Roche, an Obama campaign bundler living in Shanghai, China.

WND is preparing an affidavit for the Federal Elections Commission and the FBI on the illegal donation accepted by the Obama campaign.

Obama Foreign Policy Urges Freeing Mega-Terrorist To Run for Office

Report: US Pushing Israel to Free Barghouti

The Obama administration wants Israel to release arch-terrorist Marwan Barghouti so he can run for election.

The Obama administration is trying to convince Israel to release arch-terrorist and mass-murderer Marwan Barghouti.
According to the Hamas-aligned Al Quds daily, Washington views Barghouti as its preferred candidate for Fatah to field against Hamas in Palestinian Authority (PA) elections in May 2012.
“A high-profile US delegation has regularly discussed with officials in Tel Aviv the option to free Al Barghouti to lead Fatah against Hamas in the next elections,” the sources that the daily did not identify, said.
The Al-Quds report comes as Arab capitals are abuzz with the news that PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas will not seek re-election, leaving Washington concerned Fatah has no one to field against Hamas.
However, the release of Barghouti, who was sentenced to five life sentences for as many terror related murders in Israel, and who security services say is responsible for at least 21 other murders, is widely opposed in Israel.  Full Story
I strongly object to the Obama foreign policy that  tramples on the national sovereignty of Israel and the safety of her people.  I hope Netanyahu will tell the Obama Administration to stuff it where the sun don’t shine – as he did on his last visit to Washington D.C.  ~LTG
