A decision – not a mistake – made by someone in the U.S. State Department should violently jolt the American people. It was a decision to promote and utilize the deceptive tactic of Muruna, which we explained in great detail at Shoebat.com upon discovering it. A searing, white hot spotlight should also be shone on Rashad Hussain, a stealth jihadist and Muslim Brotherhood infiltrator who is also the Obama administration’s Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and official liaison to the Muslim world.
Hussain should be fired immediately and this is not the first time, which is why he this should be a matter of zero tolerance.
In this latest case, the deceptive tactic of Muruna was used by a deputy to the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader – which was then broadcast by the State Department – for the purpose of pushing propaganda to put distance between the Brotherhood’s stealth jihad in the U.S. and Boko Haram’s brand, which is politically toxic to America’s stealth jihadists, like Hussain, who clearly had a motive to support such a tweet if his State Department could have gotten away with it.
Last week, the State Department’s Counter Terrorism (CT) Bureau tweeted a link to the website of Shaykh Abdallah bin Bayyah in which – in English (this is key) – bin Bayyah condemned Boko Haram’s kidnapping of schoolgirls. The web page was clearly for western consumption, as was the decision by someone at the State Department to link to it:
Outrage ensued and the CT Bureau issued repeated apologies that were issued only because it got caught, not because someone inadvertently hit the wrong keystroke.
It is now time to demonstrate that Hussain is also quite familiar with Muruna. In 2013, Hussain was photographed in the White House with the same Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyah mentioned above. Bayyah’s boss – Yusuf al-Qaradawi – was banned from the U.S. in 1999 due to his connections to terrorism.
As Shoebat.com reported, longtime Clinton friend and former Chairman of the notorious Dar al-Hijrah mosque, Bassam Estwani welcomed al-Qaradawi inside the mosque prior to the latter’s ban:
Shortly after being hired by the Obama administration in early 2010, Hussain was caught lying about a speech he gave at a 2004 Muslim Students Association (MSA) event. In addition to that speech being important because the MSA is a Muslim Brotherhood front group that utilizes muruna tactics to fly under the radar in the U.S., Hussain’s comments expressed sympathy for convicted terrorist Sami al-Arian.
Hussain continued lying about making the comments until he had to admit to making them when an audio recording of the comments surfaced. In fact, the quotes attributed to him in the publication that did the story in 2004 were actually removed, presumably at the behest of someone at the White House on behalf of Hussain, who should have been fired immediately. Here is video from a Fox News report just days prior to Hussain’s ultimate admission that he made the comments:
Audio of the YouTube video above in case it is taken down:
Part 2 (someone had Hussain’s quotes removed from the article):
An audio recording of Hussain making the comments in question was released days later. Here is that audio which caused Hussain to concede that he made them. Shockingly, Hussain still holds the same job more than four years later:
Months after the controversy that should have resulted in Hussain’s firing, Shoebat.com discovered a rather explosive audio recording of the Ground Zero Mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf.
In an interview with an Arabic media outlet, given just days prior to the announcement that Hussain would be the new envoy to the OIC, Rauf mixes both English and Arabic. While speaking in Arabic, he says that portions of his book were incorporated into Obama’s 2009 Cairo speech. The individual most likely to have done so was Hussain, who is known to have been involved in writing that speech.
Muruna is similar to the deceptive Islamic tactic of taqiyya but is in many ways far more deceptive and diabolical. Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf Al-Qaradawi has written volumes on the subject and has commanded stealth jihadists the world over to practice it. In essence, it allows a Muslim to do whatever is necessary, to include violating the most fundamental tenets of Islamic laws. For example, many have attempted to dismiss our findings on Huma Abedin, a practicing Muslim whose mother is a leader within the Muslim Sisterhood. Attempts to debunk our findings include the fact that Abedin married a Jew in Anthony Weiner and therefore must be more moderate.
An illustration of how effective Muruna can be was demonstrated by then KFI 640 Los Angeles talk show host Bill Carroll in an interview he did with Walid Shoebat in the wake of the first Anthony Weiner sexting scandal in June of 2011. As the media was focused in on Weiner’s tweets, we were busy uncovering Abedin’s Muslim Brotherhood ties.
One day after Pajamas Media published our article, Shoebat appeared with Carroll to explain. To his credit, Carroll at least introduced the topic on his program when so many others ignored it. Unfortunately, by the end of the interview, Carroll was dismissing Shoebat as a conspiracy theorist because Abedin’s marriage to a Jew made no sense if she was a Muslim Brotherhood agent. This interview took place before we discovered Muruna, which is why Shoebat left open the possibility that Weiner may have converted to Islam.
At one point, Shoebat brought up the Clintons’ connections to Islamists, which only further caused Carroll to scoff. Again, thanks ironically to the Clinton Library as well as events that unfolded after the overthrow of Mohammed Mursi in Egypt, we were able to demonstrate more of these extensive connections at Shoebat.com [here, here, here, here, here, here and here].
In hindsight, Shoebat is once again, vindicated after nearly three years:
Is it permissible, then, to have alliances with powers that are non-Muslim? Can Muslims work in banks that practice usury? … For the young Muslims they should not leave their jobs in banks and insurance agencies despite their work being evil, since their experience in these agencies would gain experience for what would benefit the Muslim commerce … whoever examines the issues in light of the Doctrine of Balance would find that entry into these arenas is not merely a project, but a preference and a duty.
Abedin was permitted to marry Weiner for reasons related to the Doctrine of Balance. In marrying a Jew, she was able to escape suspicion, anecdotally demonstrated by Carroll. In marrying a U.S. Congressman, she was able to gain access to more power. Period.
Like Abedin, there is more than enough evidence that Hussain is a Muslim Brotherhood infiltrator. If that’s not enough, well, there’s always lying, expressing support for America’s enemies, welcoming a Muslim Brotherhood deputy into the White House, and collaborating with an imam that is a proven stealth jihadist.
Aren’t those things enough?
