BigPeace.com broke the story earlier this week on the White House sponsorship of a workshop to show Muslim organizations how to get federal taxpayer dollars for their activities. The Coordinating Council of Muslim Organizations (CCMO) brought 25-30 Muslim leaders of 20 national groups together for the federal workshop. This is how Obama spends our tax dollars.
The White House, Departments of Agriculture, Education, Homeland Security, Health and Human Services and others were involved in this grant fest. The White House goal was to provide "direct access" to grants and to "cut through the red tape" so Islamist groups can easily get taxpayer dollars. After the event, there was an Iftar dinner, which celebrates the end of Ramadan.
In contrast, Obama has gutted the faith-based office and disallowed any National Day of Prayer events in the White House.
Remember: Islam is not a religion like the Baptists, the Assembly of God or Catholicism, but it is a geo-political, military system.
Many of the organizations that are part of the CCMO are part of the radical Muslim Brotherhood, an organization founded in 1928 to impose Islamic tyranny on every nation on the globe. A 2007 membership list of the CCMO reveals that there are 41 Muslim groups.
The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) sent out an email announcing the White House grant workshop, so it is likely leaders of this group attended. ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Terrorism Finance trial.
The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Public Affairs Committee, and others are listed as CCMO members.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued an email responding to a BigPeace request for information on the workshop. The USDA stated that "these meetings are not open to the press." This is apparently what Obama means by "transparency."
How many Islamist groups associated with the Muslim Brotherhood are now going to receive tax dollars to fund their subversive activities? We don't know.
After the November elections, when Republicans gain control of the House and perhaps even the Senate, the new leadership can hold hearings to discover the facts about this shameful event.
