EXPLOSIVE New Discovery Reveals Grover Norquist On Path to Becoming Muslim Double Agent During Reagan Administration and Has Helped Dirty Up Some Powerful People Along the Way

The already alarming connections of Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) President Grover Norquist to Islamic terrorism have both come into sharper focus and gotten even more alarming. In an expose’ by Lee Stranahan, it’s revealed that being married to a Palestinian Muslim wife isn’t Norquist’s only connection to Islam through his family. In fact, the other connection appears to have come years earlier and may be far more consequential to American history (more on that at end of post).

Norquist reportedly married his wife Samah Alrayyes in 2004. However, 1998 is a key year when digging into his nefarious dealings. The timing of those two events could suggest that Norquist was running in Islamic activist circles years before he met his wife. He founded the Islamic Institute with a man named Khaled Saffuri in 1998. In the year of ATR’s founding in 1985, Norquist’s sister Loraine graduated with an MBA from Harvard. Sometime thereafter, she married a Muslim man named Majed Tomeh, who also received a Harvard MBA. This provides us with a window in time (1985-1998) when something happened that would prompt Grover to partner with Saffuri.

What Stranahan has discovered is that Saffuri wasn’t the only Islamic Institute co-founder; Norquist’s brother-in-law Tomeh was too:

Why has Majed Tomeh never been mentioned by Grover Norquist as a co-founder of the Islamic Institute?

That’s a question that becomes much more interesting when you learn that Majed Tomeh is also Grover Norquist’s brother-in-law, who was married to Norquist’s sister years prior to the founding the Islamic Institute in 1998. That means the unrevealed connection between Norquist and Palestinian Anti-Israel activism goes much deeper than anyone had suspected.

Stranahan also links to a 1999 petition signed by Tomeh that expressed a Hamas-friendly position against the Palestinian Authority and then in 2009, Tomeh was a signatory to another letter that supported the position of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh.

As Shoebat.com has reported, Saffuri was once the deputy of a man named Abdurahman Alamoudi, who founded the Boston Mosque attended by the Boston Marathon bombers and was arrested on terrorism charges in 2003. One year later, Alamoudi was sentenced to more than 20 years. In 1999, Alamoudi cut two $10,000 checks to the Islamic Institute founded by Norquist, Saffuri and Tomeh:

Two months after the Boston Marathon bombing, FBI Director Robert Mueller, who began his tenure one week prior to the 9/11 attacks, was asked by Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House Judiciary Committee hearing if he knew that Alamoudi founded the mosque in question. More shocking than Alamoudi’s connection to that mosque was the response of Mueller – on whose watch Alamoudi was convicted – to that question:

Speaking of mosques, perhaps the most notorious one in the United States is Dar al-Hijrah, located in Falls Church, VA. At the time of the Islamic Institute’s founding, a man named Bassam Estwani was the Chairman of that mosque. As Shoebat.com has reported, Estwani was once a very powerful mover and shaker within American politics, dating back to as far as 1995 when he began visiting the White House. Less than one year prior to the 9/11 attacks, Estwani’s Congressman, Rep. Thomas M. Davis (R-VA) was able to get him a gig on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, delivering a prayer:

In a photo taken around the time of the Islamic Institute’s founding, Estwani can be seen with none other than Saffuri, Alamoudi and U.S. Congressman Jim Moran (D-VA). Norquist’s sister had been married to Tomeh for years by then.

At the time of the 9/11 attacks, none other than Anwar al-Awlaki – inspiration for Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Malik Hasan – was the Imam at Dar al-Hijrah; three of the 9/11 hijackers visited the mosque. This actually prompted the FBI to track al-Awlaki afterward, as Shoebat.com reported. Unfortunately, Estwani was not only ignored; he continued to rub elbows with powerful politicians for years.

As Bush was meeting with the likes of Saffuri and Alamoudi in the Texas Governor’s Mansion, Estwani was meeting with Bill Clinton in the Oval Office:

Another key figure in all this is a man named Suhail Khan, who was a George W. Bush administration adviser. It was Norquist who lobbied hard on behalf of Khan getting that job. Khan’s father was an early founder of Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S. According to an article written in the weeks after 9/11, it was Norquist and Saffuri who brokered a meeting between Muslim leaders and Rep. Tom Davis (Estwani’s congressman). After that meeting, Saffuri’s trips to the White House became a regular occurrence. Khan once served on the Islamic Institute’s Board.

As Shoebat.com has reported, there was no figure more significant than Norquist when it came to bringing the George W. Bush White House and the leaders of Muslim Brotherhood front groups together both before and AFTER 9/11. When Bush was still in the Texas Governor’s mansion, he welcomed a Muslim delegation that included Saffuri and Alamoudi. Close Bush advisor Karl Rove was seen carrying a book penned by an author with deep connections to the Brotherhood (again, if anyone can identify others in the photo, please leave comment):

In June of 2001, Alamoudi presented Khan with an award. While introducing Khan, Alamoudi proclaimed ‘Allahu Akbar’ after mentioning that Khan had been in the White House earlier that day and one day might be Vice President, ‘Inshallah’ (Allah willing):

It’s clear that after Bush was elected president, the practice of Rove giving Norquist and his Muslim buddies access to the President’s mansion (White House) continued. Unbeknownst to most, an article written by the New Republic’s Franklin Foer two months after 9/11 would serve as the quintessential journalistic time bomb. Here are two very relevant paragraphs:

On the afternoon of September 26, George W. Bush gathered 15 prominent Muslim- and Arab-Americans at the White House. With cameras rolling, the president proclaimed that “the teachings of Islam are teachings of peace and good.” It was a critically important moment, a statement to the world that America’s Muslim leaders unambiguously reject the terror committed in Islam’s name.

To the president’s left sat Dr. Yahya Basha, president of the American Muslim Council, an organization whose leaders have repeatedly called Hamas “freedom fighters.” Also in attendance was Salam Al-Marayati, executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, who on the afternoon of September 11 told a Los Angeles public radio audience that “we should put the State of Israel on the suspect list.” And sitting right next to President Bush was Muzammil Siddiqi, president of the Islamic Society of North America, who last fall told a Washington crowd chanting pro-Hezbollah slogans, “America has to learn if you remain on the side of injustice, the wrath of God will come.” Days later, after a conservative activist confronted Karl Rove with dossiers about some of Bush’s new friends, Rove replied, according to the activist, “I wish I had known before the event took place.”

Rove didn’t know? Norquist’s access to the White House should have been terminated; it was not. That fact demonstrates Rove absolutely did know.

Rove: Ignorant.

Rove: Ignorant.

If you’re still not convinced, consider news relayed by Shoebat.com in 2013 that Norquist’s ATR received more money from Rove’s SuperPAC than anyone else did:

Tax documents from Karl Rove’s Crossroads GPS show that Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) is largely funded by Rove, ProPublica’s Kim Barker reports…

…On its 2012 tax return, Barker reported, the biggest grant Rove’s Crossroads GPS gave to anybody was a $26.4 million grant it gave to Norquist’s ATR for “social welfare.”

In Foer’s article, one of the Muslim leaders Norquist helped inside the Oval Office on September 26, 2001 was a man named Dr. Yahya Basha. Basha is listed with… wait for it… Bassam Estwani on the Board of Directors of the Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF), a group with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and that seeks to aid in the overthrow of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.

When Elizabeth O’Bagy, the Political Director for SETF was caught hiding a significant conflict of interest after Senator John McCain cited her Wall Street Journal article in a Senate Committee hearing in an effort to push the shared agenda of regime change in Syria, the SETF website began the process of digital document shredding. O’Bagy, however, landed safely in the arms of McCain as a legislative assistant, as Shoebat.com reported.

In the wake of McCain’s endorsement of O’Bagy in a Senate hearing, Fox News Channel’s Neil Cavuto interviewed O’Bagy before she was jettisoned by the SETF; it didn’t go well for McCain’s future employee:

Shoebat.com also pointed out that it was Karl Rove who signed on to a letter addressed to Barack Obama at about the same time, urging the President to launch a bombing campaign against Assad.

Thanks to Stranahan’s find, Norquist’s connections to Islam are traced back further than they have been before with the discovery of his connection to Tomeh, which dates back to circa 1985. As such, Norquist helped to dirty up both the Clinton and Bush administrations. Alamoudi worked for the U.S. State Department in varying capacities from 1992-2001. It’s true that the bulk of that time was during the Clinton administration but George H.W. Bush was President in 1992 and his son George W. in 2001.

An interesting question to ponder: Did any of these relationships play a role in the Bush administration’s decision to pressure Israel to pull out of Gaza and hand control over to Hamas?

As if all that wasn’t bad enough, it all leads us to conclude that Norquist has been a key player in a 30-year Muslim Brotherhood plan in America that commenced in 1990, as Shoebat.com first revealed.

Those who refuse to come clean are as well.

    Ben, thanks for another well-researched and documented article for us. The extent of these far-reaching ties to the Muslim influence in our government is beyond shocking.

    • Eric

      I’d say it’s horrifying, Julie.

      • Julie LaBrecque

        Absolutely, like a noose that is slowly tightening.

        • Eric

          Right.

      • Marco Vincent

        When the enemy has infiltrated all of government level, than truly you guys have a tough fight ahead.

        • Eric

          Right, but we’ll make it. I have to belive that we will.

          • Kamau40

            Eric-
            We will eventually make it thru. But, we must be in the fight now and not wait at the last minute. Remember the movie Rocky? He remained in the fight before he eventually became victorious and won the championship at the last round.

          • Eric

            Right–we have to be in the fight to win it.

  • Julie LaBrecque

    Does the word in the memo section of the first check say ‘loan’?

    • RodK1975

      Not sure, it looks like it. I do know this. His account and routing number are plain LOL.

    • Kamau40

      It sure does.

      • Julie LaBrecque

        I don’t know what else that word could be if it isn’t loan. I wonder if this guy wrote that to insure he was paid back; if he got paid back, and also claimed the donation as a tax write-off, he is in serious trouble (you and I would be, maybe not a Muslim)

        • Kamau40

          I was able to zoom in up close on my touch screen computer to allow me to see the letters up close.

  • Marco Vincent

    Thank you Mr. ben barrack, Mr. Robert Spencer has been warning America about Grover Norquist for years and no one listened to him. Maybe you can get together on this Norquist matter in an interview?

  • RodK1975

    This is like bad dream.

    • Marco Vincent

      A Nightmare on Elm Street.

      • RodK1975

        You said it, brother…
