One of Barack Obama’s first meetings as the nation’s first socialist president could be with a supporter of the Hamas terrorist group! FOX is reporting he has selected a female Muslim “scholar” to speak at his prayer breakfast the morning after his coronation. Ingrid Mattson is in charge of a group federal prosecutors have linked to Hamas. That’s the same terror club working on the complete destruction of Israel! It’s still another for the Official Obama Administration Scandals List!
Is Mattson a supporter of Hamas Terrorists?
This is yet another example of Obama being an extremely poor judge of character. This latest scandal also is the latest of his continuing string of terrorist and terror-supporting pals! Sarah Palin was right! This guy has no clue of the danger terrorists pose to this nation. He wants to close Guantanamo (immediately after being sworn in) and revert to the Billy Bob Clinton strategy of giving terrorists the full rights of US citizens and then trying them in a court of law. They’ll wind up with defenders like the ones who got OJ Simpson off on his murder charge. This is nuts! Oh, but he promised he’d sit down and talk with terror leaders like those in Iran. Unfortunately for us, that’s one promise he isn’t breaking. He’ll meet with this woman within 24 hours of taking office!
Mattson is a “professor” of Islamic studies at Hartford Seminary in Connecticut. She also is President of the Islamic Society of North America. Her group has filed court papers saying they do not condone terrorism. Fox quotes people who defend her and say she has always been against terrorism. Let’s hope that is correct. Let’s hope the federal prosecutors are wrong. However, shouldn’t we find out first before we sit her down the the leader of the free world? The Bush administration liked this woman too and had her speak at events as well. However, the intelligence community says it has evidence linking her group to the so-called “Holy Land Foundation,” which sent millions to Hamas to help kill innocent Israeli children. Fox Reports:
“But in 2007 and as recently as last July, federal prosecutors in Dallas filed court documents linking the Plainfield, Ind.-based Islamic society to the group Hamas, which the U.S. considers a terrorist organization. Neither Mattson nor her organization have been charged. But prosecutors wrote in July that they had “a wide array of testimonial and documentary evidence expressly linking” the group to Hamas and other radical groups. Linda Douglass, a spokeswoman for Obama’s inaugural committee, would not discuss the case or say whether the committee knew about it. “She has a stellar reputation in the faith community,” Douglass said Saturday night.”
A stellar reputation? The leader of a group that prosecutors say is supporting terrorists has a stellar reputation? Who’s telling the truth? Are the prosecutors correct? If so, it’s no wonder we didn’t see 9/11 coming. These people hide in public and we call them friends and people with “stellar” reputations. Give me a break.
Until the truth is known, we call on the Obama administration to immediately remove her from the speakers list and to launch a more thorough investigation into the group she leads. Let’s find out once and for all if Mattson and/or her group does have ties to terror or if it is a group that intends to help in the fight against terror. That’s all we ask.
No wonder Obama picked Biden for VP. Obama needed someone who would make more mistakes than he would! That made it very hard to find anyone!
