If you want proof that the Syrian rebels the pseudo-intellectuals in Congress want to arm are not friends of the U.S., just look at the history of Mouaz Moustafa, the Executive Director of the primary organization that is lobbying Washington, DC for support on behalf of the rebels. Moustafa heads the Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF) that seeks the ouster of Bashar al-Assad.
Moustafa’s group contributed to the mess that is Libya today. In 2011, Moustafa headed the Libyan Emergency Task Force (LETF) that sought the removal of Muammar Gadhafi. Regardless of your stance on Gadhafi, Libya is in far worse shape today than it was before. After Gadhafi’s removal, four Americans – including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya – were murdered in Benghazi. Less than two years later, the U.S. abandoned its Embassy in Tripoli, as Shoebat.com reported.
So what did Moustafa get for his troubles? Well, he moved on over to the SETF and has effectively duped – or lobbied significantly – members of Congress into believing the removal of Assad will be wonderful for Syria, just like Gadhafi’s removal was for Libya. Here is Moustafa posing with Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) recently in Turkey. Shockingly, Kinzinger is a former U.S. Air Force pilot who doesn’t even know he’s being deceived by the Muslim Brotherhood (Kinzinger was one of the Congressmen who voted to arm Syria’s rebels recently):
Back in March of 2011, the LETF held a protest outside the White House. Photos of the event are posted to the group’s facebook page. Here is Moustafa:
Another figure who was in attendance was Esam Omeish. Omeish has a bit of a public relations rap sheet. He has been a board member of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque for years and is credited with hiring Anwar al-Awlaki as the imam there in 2001, as Shoebat.com has reported.
Omeish has also served as President of the Muslim American Society (MAS), which was founded by the current Imam at Dar al-Hijrah, Shaker Elsayed. Elsayed admitted that MAS was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood as Shoebat.com has reported. Here is a video of Omeish posted to Elsayed’s YouTube channel. It features Omeish giving a sermon at Dar al-Hijrah last year:
Lest you’re inclined to believe that Moustafa and Omeish are not connected in any way, consider this photo of Moustafa with Dar al-Hijrah’s outreach director Johari Abdul Malik:
What the LETF did outside the White House in March of 2011, the SETF did one year later in April. In much the same way that the logos for each group are similar, so were the protests. On hand at the 2012 installment was former Dar al-Hijrah Chairman Bassam Estwani, who sits on the Board of the SETF as Shoebat.com has reported.
Back in February of 2001, less than one year prior to the 9/11 attacks, Estwani was invited to give a prayer on the House floor by Rep. Thomas Davis, whose district Estwani lived in at the time. In this photo outside the Capitol, Estwani can be seen on the far left and Esam Omeish on the far right.
