    State Dept. Recruits Muslim Foreign Service Officers at Jihadist Conf.

    Corruption Chronicles, the Judicial Watch Blog

    The Obama administration is covertly recruiting Muslims to work at the State Department as Foreign Service officers representing the United States in one of 265 American embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions worldwide.

    It appears to be part of the administration’s Muslim outreach effort, which includes a variety of controversial moves. Among them Homeland Security meetings with extremist Islamic organizations, sending an America-bashing mosque leader (Feisal Abdul Rauf) who blames U.S. foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks on a Middle Eastern outreach mission and revamping the way federal agents are trained to combat terrorism by eliminating all materials that shed a negative light on Muslims.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton even signed a special order to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties long banned them from the U.S.

    Now comes news of a secretive State Department campaign, discovered in the course of a Judicial Watch investigation, to add Muslims to its roster. Presumably, the new recruits will be deployed around the globe to help the agency fulfill its mission of promoting the country’s international relations. The campaign seems to be headed by Mark Ward, the Deputy Special Coordinator in the State Department’s Office of Middle East Transition.

    Ward held a 90-minute seminar at a recent convention sponsored by two groups—Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)—with known ties to radical Islam. Both nonprofits are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is known as the parent organization of Hamas and al Qaeda. In fact, the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports that MAS was founded as the U.S. chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood j

    Yet there was a U.S. State Department official, side by side at a radical Islamic powwow in Chicago with a number of speakers who advocate violent jihad. Among them was Kifah Mustapha, a fundraiser at terrorist organization (Holy Land Foundation) convicted of funneling millions to Hamas and Jamal Badawi, a MAS founder who praised the jihad of Gaza terrorists during a speech titled “Understanding Jihad and Martyrdom.”

    The conference that Ward conducted focused on career opportunities for Muslim youth. Here is how the event was billed: “Besides being a citizenship duty, there are benefits that Muslims can add to the American Muslim community and the global Muslim world by joining the US Foreign Services. This session will shed light on the different career opportunities for Muslim youth in the US Foreign Services Department. It will also clear any concerns that many people have feared about   pursuing in this career.”

    Joining Ward at the podium in the recruitment seminar were Ayman Hammous and Oussama Jammal.  Hammous is the Executive Director of the New York chapter of MAS and Jammal is the president of the Mosque Foundation, a conservative mosque in Bridgeview, Illinois that gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Holy Land Foundation and other Islamic charities accused of financing terrorism.

      Obama and his administration is un-american and anti-american They are trators working hand in hand with our enemies. They empower Taliban and Muslim Brotherhood and install radical fanatics in governments of various Middle Eastern countries . These policies are going to backfire at us and there willbe none to help our ailing nation.

    2. Does this mean a Arab terrorist can be paid by the US government while working as a terrorist?

    3. B.Poster says:

      For whatever reason America’s leaders seem to be unable to distinguish friend from foe. Whether or not the leaders are evil and fundamentally Anti-American and this is by design or whether it is due to colassly bad judgement on the part of the leaders, the result is still the same. Nobody will trust us or will be willing to work constructiely with us on any thing of importance.

      There truly would be none to help us. Someone would wonder, if they act as a friend to us, will they get stabbed in the back. Also, nobody gains any thing good from offering friendship or precious resources to an adversary. This only encourages the adversary to be even more beligerent.

    4. David Chase says:

      Someone should ask Hillary Clinton why she allowed those banned terrorist-tied radical Islamist academics back into America but she refused to grant a visa to the Haitian man (I forgot his name for now) who wanted to enter America to march in the New York City Israel Day Parade to thank the Israeli’s for providing him with the prosthetic leg and rehabilitation that allowed him to return, not just to the ability to walk, but to the DANCEFLOOR. Answer that one, Hillary.;

      This is why some of us cling so tightly to our religion and guns!!!!!!!

      @ Robin Rosenblatt:
      Yes, that’s what it means (Consider reading Pamela Geller’s book “The Islamization of America” to see how they operate. It’s a very easy read, very interesting, and a perspective that you won’t see in the Op-Ed page of the New York Times, etc.. Also, I understand it’s selling for a little less these days. The work she does is very important and not something the average American is exposed too but, despite the backlash and even dangers involved, she tells a very important message. If this article was a bit of an eye opener, then I highly recommend her book

    7. Mickey Oberman says:

      Why are only a very few Americans just waking up to Obama’s forcing of Islam upon the nation?
      Almost all its institutions from municipal, state, federal, educational, law enforcement, legal and even religious are permeated with Muslims.
      They are in positions of trust which all will betray at the opportune time.
