#DhimmiPatrol – Grover Norquist
It’s seems that conservatives may finally be waking up to the fact that Grover Norquist is not worthy of leading any of our troops into battle.
He is severely compromised by his alliances with Muslim Terrorists and his sympathy with Islam.
I have been blogging about his Dhimmitude for several years now [see here for several examples] and it appears that the decision by some GOP Establishment types [Boo, hiss!] to break the Americans For Tax Reform ‘No New Taxes’ Pledge has caused some conservatives to finally speak-up about Norquist’s Useful Idiocy.
From FrontPageMag, Arnold Ahlert writing:
…Americans might not like seeing their taxes go up, but Grover Norquist’s fall from grace has its benefits: as he goes down, so goes his pro-Islamist agenda.
That agenda was laid bare by Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) in a speech on the House floor, October 4, 2011. “My conscience has compelled me to come to the floor today to voice concerns I have with the influence Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, has on the political process in Washington,” said Wolf. “My issue is not with ATR’s goal of keeping taxes low..My concern is with the other individuals, groups, and causes with whom Mr. Norquist is associated that have nothing to do with keeping taxes low.”
Wolf mentioned Norquist’s “association and representation” of terrorist financier and vocal Hamas supporter Abdurahman Alamoudi, and terrorist financier Sami Al-Arian. In 2004, Alamoudi, one of the most prominent and influential Muslim Brothers in the United States, was sentenced to 23 years in prison for supporting terror. Alamoudi, a self-described supporter of Hamas and Hezbollah, had cultivated ties with the Clinton White House that eventually enabled him and his associates to select, train and certify Muslim chaplains for the U.S. military. Fearing a loss by Al Gore in the 2000 presidential election, Alamoudi befriended Norquist to ensure his access to senior levels of the U.S. government would be maintained, if Republicans took charge. He gave Norquist $20,000 to establish the Islamic Free Market Institute, and Alamoudi’s longtime deputy, Khaled Saffuri, became the founding director.
Norquist and Saffuri eventually became an integral part of the Bush administration’s Muslim outreach efforts during the 2000 campaign, with Saffuri named as Muslim Outreach Coordinator. During that campaign, Bush was also introduced to Sami Al-Arian. In 2006, Al-Arian was sentenced to 57 months in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to provide support to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).
Wolf illuminated the bigger picture of that relationship, noting that Norquist was an “outspoken supporter of Al-Arian’s effort to end the use of classified evidence in terror trials.” Al-Arian ran the National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom (NCPPF), and Norquist supported their efforts to weaken or repeal the Patriot Act as well, despite the terrorist atrocities perpetrated on 9/11. Wolf also revealed that Norquist “was scheduled to lead a delegation to the White House on September 11, 2001, that included a convicted felon and some who would later be identified by federal law enforcement as suspected terrorist financiers.” One of the members of that delegation was Omar Ahmed, co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR was named an un-indicted co-conspirator when the Holy Land Foundation was convicted of sending million of dollars in funding to Hamas and other Islamic terrorist organizations.
There’s much more that is deeply disturbing about the behavior of Norquist to be found in Mr. Ahlert’s article, so please do take the time to click here and read it all. Also, please click here to check out the file on Norquist at Discover The Networks.
Tip of the fedora to Donald Douglas, proprietor of American Power, who comments:
…I do think folks should be careful about elevating Norquist as some standard-bearer for a resurgent anti-tax movement. He’s a very influential guy with sound ideas on small government. But don’t make him a hero. He’s practically treasonous with his Islamist alliances. The tea party can do fine without him….
One hopes The TEA Party folks will not allow themselves to be deceived by this Dhimmi. They must not consider that many RINO’s are rejecting the ATR Pledge, but that Norquist is a Quisling for the Jihad.
Conservatives have tolerated this Useful Idiot, this Dupe, for too long. Perhaps it is because we see him as a fool, but have you considered the fact that his actions give one the impression that Norquist is not simply acting out of profound ignorance, but, rather, that he is, in fact, a Fellow Traveller of Mohammedism? If it smells like a goat…
