Obama appoints anti-Israel, 9-11 truther to represent U.S. at human rights conference

Seeing a pattern here folks?
Former Clinton administration official says: “It is inexplicable and deeply concerning that a person who has suggested Israel was responsible for the 9/11 attacks and advocated for terrorist organizations including Hamas and Hezbollah, which has killed more Americans than any terrorist group except al Qaeda, would be described as ‘valued’ and ‘highly credible’ by our government.”

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.”

    FINALLY, some people, including those within the Jewish community, who are beginning to see Obama’s real intentions. Obama is absolutely the worst that America has to offer in terms of political leadership, and I know that it seems that i say this every day, but the US media is aligned with his agenda and uses all its influence to promote him and to distort all political issues. The mainstream media is dangerous.

  2. Coyote says :

    And people wonder why some of us think Obama’s a Muslim? Hmm…

  3. Lynne says :

    Obama is clearly anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and apparently pro-RADICAL Muslim.

  4. Mac says :

    Actually, I’m starting to get the feeling that Obama is really just bored to distraction. I don’t see anyone being this clueless. I think he just has a lot of bad people with agendas around him. Someone has to be appointed to whatever and someone like Valerie Jarrett picks someone and he doesn’t care. I picture a group of evil puppet-masters behind the curtain and the puppet just doesn’t care. I think Obama likes the idea of being president, but not the actual job of being president.

  5. Lynne says :

    He and Michelle were like the perks. They have set a record, I believe, for vacations and extravagance. Obama is far more comfortable with the wealthy and with Hollywood…but the stupid mainstream media sycophants apparently don’t care. Biden and now that moron Dave Letterman claim that Romney has not paid taxes in ten years, but the mainstream media ignores this, doesn’t call them on these outrageous claims. I will never watch a single second of Letterman again.

    • Mac says :

      It’s been years since I watched Letterman. Obama thought he was elected king not president.

    • TDDPirate says :

      Another possible explanation for Obama’s performance in the first debate against Romney: the night before he had a big quarrel with his wife because they won’t be celebrating their 20th wedding day exactly on time and/or he didn’t plan to mention it during the debate.
