As President Bill Clinton falsely assured Americans that he “did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky”, he was spiritually copulating with the number one Muslim Brotherhood mole, unknown until Shoebat.com revealed it. An otherwise innocent letter released by the Clinton Library helps to connect all the dots.
The case against former Dar al-Hijrah mosque chairman Bassam Estwani is ironclad. When it comes to Muslim Brotherhood espionage inside the United States, Estwani is a major mole. He has curried favor with powerful politicians; the mosque he led for years incubated and bred terrorists who were released into American streets; he has targeted youth, and he has been an outward proponent of “Interfaith” dialogue and outreach (think Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf). Estwani’s role in aiding and abetting Muslims with connections to the first World Trade Center attack is now conclusive. The related exclusive reports at Shoebat.com with multiple never-before-seen photos, can be read here, here, here, here, and here.
All of these links are just the tip of the iceberg. There is much more. Read on, if you dare.
The Clinton Library recently released letters and emails apparently without knowing the significance of the contents. In a letter to then President Bill Clinton in 1999, Estwani thanked Clinton for welcoming him into the White House frequently, beginning as early as Clinton’s first term. The letter to Clinton made three requests. One such request was that the President visit the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, VA. By his own admission, Estwani refers to the mosque as “one of the most active and largest Islamic centers in the United States”. The letter then reads as follows:
I have been repeatedly honored by your invitations and warm receptions at the white house, especially at the Breakfast Prayers since September 1995. You and the first lady have graciously hosted the Muslim community on several occasions and we are eternally grateful for your and her gracious hospitality and reception.
This confirms that Clinton and Estwani had met as early as 1995. That same year, Estwani approved the hiring of an Imam implicated in the first World Trade Center attack, two years earlier. In 1995, as Shoebat.com reported, a man named Mohammed al-Hanooti was identified as an unidicted co-conspirator in that bombing. That is also the same year al-Hanooti became an imam at Dar al-Hijrah, under Estwani. So we know Estwani was responsible for al-Hanooti’s position at the mosque. We also know al-Hanooti had a close relationship with the convicted mastermind of that attack – Omar Abdel Rahman (the ‘Blind Sheikh’).
In short, Estwani brought al-Hanooti on board while knowing of his connections to the WTC bombing.
According to a 2002 Albany Times-Union article, in the early 1990’s, al-Hanooti was…
…the imam at a Jersey City, New Jersey, mosque where at least one of the WTC bombers regularly prays and where al-Qaeda leader Sheikh Omar Abdul-Rahman often delivers incendiary speeches. An FBI report claims Al-Hanooti raised more than $6 million for Hamas in 1993 alone, funneling much of it through the Holy Land Foundation.
IPT’s Patrick Poole explained al-Hanooti’s move to Dar al-Hijrah this way:
Feeling the heat from the blind sheik’s terrorism trial, al-Hanooti moved to D.C. in 1995, where he became the imam of the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia.
In 2013, Clinton had been out of office for more than a decade but al-Hanooti was still giving sermons at Dar al-Hijrah despite being an unindicted co-conspirator in the first WTC attack as well as the Holy Land Foundation trial, as reported by Shoebat.com.
Over the next four to five years, it was Estwani who provided safe harbor to a man implicated in the first attack on the World Trade Center, which happened on Bill Clinton’s watch. Such information was made public; Clinton cannot deny knowledge of this. He and his administration had to have known of these connections. Instead of seeking justice for the victims of that bombing, Clinton was obviously more interested in seeking Muslim money, Muslim votes, and praise in a book Estwani wanted to write regarding Clinton’s assistance in advancing the Muslim cause in America.
Emails from Clinton’s office – also released by the Clinton Library – make the connection between the handwritten notes made by Clinton on the first page of Estwani’s letter to Clinton which we posted to Shoebat.com. Clinton included the following action statement for his people:
“It would be good to have collected all acts for Muslims.”
In the days that followed, email exchanges between Clinton’s advisers conclude that this was meant to be done if Estwani’s third request (a one-on-one meeting with Clinton) was honored. Next to this request in Estwani’s original letter, Clinton wrote “ok to do”. As for why the President wanted to “collect all acts for Muslims”, an email from one of Clinton’s advisers explains:
Third: meeting with President (POTUS: “ok to do.”) Since the Arab American meeting, I’ve had increased calls for a Muslim meeting. His request, however, is for him alone as a thank you because he wants to prepare a book on all the President has done for Muslims – might be quite good to do it and publicize.
Clinton wanted to serve Muslims at all costs, despite Estwani being a Muslim Brotherhood mole and despite knowing that American blood had been shed.
The author of the email concludes that Clinton wanted to “collect all acts for Muslims” so he could provide Estwani with material for his book. The meeting with Estwani and the visit to Dar al-Hijrah did not appear to happen which indicates foreknowledge. An email between advisers explains:
“…we really would advise against the President going to that mosque so don’t want to get his hopes up… and we really aren’t going to try to get him in for a one-on-one with the President.”
This would seem to indicate that Clinton’s advisers were well aware of what Dar al-Hijrah and Estwani were all about and preferred to have the meetings in quiet. In any event, Clinton was more interested in pandering to terrorists than in holding them accountable. The access granted to Estwani more than demonstrates that.
One individual who received a copy of the letter with Clinton’s notes was then Chief of Staff John Podesta. If you think Podesta is a figment of the past, think again. Today, Podesta is a counselor to President Obama and is the founder of the George Soros funded Center for American Progress (CAP). Bloomberg referred to CAP as an “Idea Factory” for the Obama campaign in 2008 and explained Podesta’s role after the election:
CAP’s president and founder, John Podesta, 59, former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, is one of three people running the transition team for president-elect Barack Obama, 47. A squadron of CAP experts is working with them.
Perhaps the most damning visual indictment of Estwani – as well as Clinton’s embrace of him – is the photo below, taken inside the Dar al-Hijrah mosque. It shows Estwani (seated on the floor) with Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader and terrorist-in-chief, Yusuf al-Qaradawi. Estwani humbly sitting on the floor while al-Qaradawi is seated at the desk is not an accident. It is a tradition in which a man shows great deference while acknowledging spiritual pedigree and stature.
Though the photo is undated, it’s believed to have been taken during the Clinton administration and was certainly taken prior to Estwani’s visit to the White House in 2000; al-Qaradawi was banned from entering the U.S. in 1999.
Every Muslim Brotherhood front group in the U.S. – to include CAIR, ISNA, MSA, MAS, MPAC, NAIT, IIIT, ICNA, AMSS and so many others – to include the 29 groups listed in a document at the center of the Holy Land Foundation trial – view al-Qaradawi as a leader. That document, known as An Explanatory Memorandum written in 1991 stated, in part, the following:
The Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
According to multiple sources, al-Qaradawi has issued fatwas in support of suicide bombings intended to murder innocent civilians and U.S. troops in Iraq.
As Shoebat.com reported previously, al-Qaradawi laid out his strategy for Muruna – an intricate and diabolical tactic of deception – in 1989, while in the U.S. at the annual conference of the Association of Muslim Youth Forums, just two years prior to the Brotherhood’s written plan for taking over the United States. As an example, Muruna is so deceptive that it allows for a Muslim woman to marry a Jewish man if doing so furthers the objectives of Islam. This happened when close Hillary Clinton adviser and devout Muslim Huma Abedin married then U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner. Abedin’s brother – Hassan Abedin – has served with al-Qaradawi on Boards together. None other than Bill Clinton presided over Abedin’s marriage to Weiner in 2010.
The Muslim Brotherhood is an international network with branches all over the world, to include the United States. Estwani is its mole; Qaradawi is the spiritual head.
If you think this report is explosive, just wait. We’re just scratching the surface.
