Terrorist Fundraisers for Obama

Terrorist Fundraisers for Obama

"Two years ago, Hatem El-Hady was the chairman of the Toledo, Ohio-based Islamic charity, Kindhearts, which was closed by the US government in February 2006 for terrorist fundraising and all its assets frozen. Today, El-Hady has redirected his fundraising efforts for his newest cause - Barack Obama for President."

"El-Hady has his own dedicated page on Barack Obama's official website, chronicling his fundraising on behalf of the Democratic Party presidential candidate (his Obama profile established on February 19, 2008 - two years to the day after Kindhearts was raided by the feds). Not only that, but he has none other than Barack Obama's wife, Michelle Obama, listed as one of his friends (one of her 224 listed friends)."

Dr. Hatem Elhady M.D. is an emergency room doctor in Cleveland. He founded a charity to send school supplies to Muslims in Palestine. The day after the people of Palestine elected the political wing of the Hamas organization to power, Israel had George W. Bush declare an economic embargo of Palestine. Based on a single uncorroborated phone call from someone at Kindhearts to a Hamas official in Palestine, the U.S. Treasury froze $5 million in Kindheart funds.

Habeas Corpus, Schmabeas Corpus.

I heard something about a judicial system being created long ago in this country that was supposed to the best solution for situations where a group on one side is claiming one set of facts and another group is claiming the exact opposite.

I'm familiar with the Kindhearts case and the Feds may well be right, but the way the government can simply seize money and keep it with no one having to prove anything and string it out for years is extremely un-American, as are most of the post-9/11 "security" measures that strip away rights people have long took for granted. The sad part is that when a lot of Americans find out that rights to due process and Habeas Corpus have been seriously weakened, they think it's OK because now they are "safer." NOT.

- KindHearts’ Director of Domestic Programs, Khalifah Ramadan. Ramadan was a training and evaluation consultant for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), two large Muslim organizations based in the United States that have links to overseas terror groups.
- KindHearts’ Representaive, Omar Shahin. Shahin was an Imam for the Islamic Center of Tucson (ICT), the former home of numerous terror operatives, including Wael Jelaidan, who later helped found Al-Qaeda.
- KindHearts’ Representative, Wagdy Ghuneim. Ghuneim, an Egyptian cleric, has been featured in KindHearts fundraising dinners for 2002, 2003 and 2004. During a rally at Brooklyn College, in May of 1998, Ghuneim attempted to persuade the crowd to support violent jihad and labeled Jews as “descendants of the apes.”
- KindHearts’ Representative, Hatem Bazian. Bazian is an Islamic Studies instructor and a member of the faculty of Near Eastern Studies at UC Berkley. In April of 2004, during a San Francisco anti-war rally, Bazian, a native Palestinian, called for an “intifada” against the United States. This was just two months prior to Bazian being featured in a KindHearts Fundraising Dinner, entitled ‘Palestinians in agony!’
- KindHearts’ Manager in Lebanon, Haytham Maghawri (a.k.a. Haytham Fawri). Maghawri, the past Social Services Director for HLF, according to the Treasury Department, “collected [KindHearts] funds and sent them to Hamas and other Salafi groups.” [One of the recipients of KindHearts funding was Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) Usama Hamdan, a leader of Hamas in Lebanon.]

These people want to destroy Western civilization. Why do all of you libs including Barack act as apologists for them?

Barack Obama is the personification of a wolf in sheep's clothing.

I was just reading about this myself, Beav. This group," Kindhearts", has also supported Hamas with their "charitable funds". Also has ties to al Qaeda. The list just grows...
