WITH OBAMA AS THE CALIPH?
by Sharon Rondeau
(Jun. 17, 2014) — A member of Obama’s Homeland Security Advisory Council, Mohamed Elibiary, predicted on Twitter last week that it is “inevitable” that an Islamic Caliphate “returns,” and that the “US [is] heading in that direction.”
Elibiary was appointed to the council in 2010. Ryan Mauro of The Clarion Project, which reports on Islamic violence and Sharia Law, interviewed Elibiary in which he asked the reader afterward, “Is it appropriate for the Department of Homeland Security to have as a senior advisor someone like Mohamed Elibiary with close ties to identified US Muslim Brotherhood entities and an ill-concealed determination to advance their cause in government councils, political circles and elsewhere” (page 33).
In July 2012, PJ Media published an article about five congressmen who wrote a letter to the Inspectors General of several executive-branch departments expressing concern for the level of Muslim Brotherhood infiltration to the U.S. government. The link to the letter now leads to an error message.
Rep. Michele Bachmann, who is not running for re-election in November, was blamed for conducting a “Muslim witch hunt” by Salon and other left-wing media for claiming that Elibiary had “extensive ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Three years before, four congressmen had accused the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of infiltrating congressional committees with Islamic staffers in order to steer legislation favorable to the Muslim community. Rep. Louis Gohmert of Texas had alleged that Elibiary had illegally accessed classified information from a Texas law enforcement website about Gov. Rick Perry and others for transmission to left-leaning media, to which then-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano responded by stating, “As far as I know…he did not download classified documents,” although she admitted that Elibiary “accessed some documents.”
In the Mauro interview transcript, footnote #61 referencing a letter Elibiary wrote after the Boston Marathon bombings of 2013, has been removed from The Washington Post’s website. Elibiary claimed last fall that “I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution. Move On!”
On page 23 of the transcript of the Mauro interview, Elibiary states that “I, more than most, have gone out of my way to sit down with fellow Americans who find themselves concerned about Muslim Brotherhood associations within the American Muslim community to help them find peace of mind after separating fact from fiction.”
Some believe that Obama is attempting to create an Islamic Caliphate. Recent violent events in Iraq carried out by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) suggest that the hard-line Sharia group seeks to establish “an Islamic state.” ISIS is using American-made armaments and tanks.
The Arab Spring which began in December 2010 in the Middle East culminated in Islamic governments in Tunisia, Egypt and more recently, Libya, after its interim government fell to Islamic radicals in Libya, where The Muslim Brotherhood is “one of the biggest factions in parliament.” Last July, a popular uprising in Egypt ended Mohamed Morsi’s presidency, during which he seized “near absolute powers.” Morsi now stands accused of colluding with The Muslim Brotherhood to commit the crimes of kidnapping, murder, and “creating chaos” within the country.
Islamic radicals have been kidnapping and murdering Coptic Christians in Egypt, including children. Christians in Egypt supported the presidency of Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, who was sworn in earlier this month after an interim period following Morsi’s ouster.
The Clarion Project considers Elibiary to be “openly pro-Muslim Brotherhood.” Researcher and writer Pamela Geller describes him as “a Muslim Brotherhood operative [who is] dismantling our defenses from within and laying the groundwork for jihad.”
In 2011, one analyst stated that “Barack Obama has demonstrated a strong affinity for the Muslim world, beginning particularly with his trip to Cairo early in his presidency.” Some believe that Obama’s lack of leadership has caused “the birth of the Islamic Caliphate.” Four years ago, a Pakistani cleric called upon Obama to be “Grand Caliph, leader of the world’s Muslims.”
Last fall, Middle East analyst and expert Walid Shoebat reported:
Obama is setting up the Caliphate as quickly as possible for his Sunni Muslim Brotherhood brethren and it appears to be a top priority as he only has just over three years before his second term ends. Most “moderate” political thinkers will scoff at our repeated advocacy that Obama is Muslim but there is so much evidence that would suggest this is the case.
