During a recent interview with Michael Savage, Walid was delivering rapid fire answers to very hard questions. There was one question he admitted to having no answer for; he simply couldn’t explain it. That question was: Why do so many American politicians support the Muslim Brotherhood, Turkey, and so many stealth jihadists?
It has been extremely confusing to Americans who are paying attention, especially when it applies to Republicans.
The reasons may involve money but they also likely include very dirty and very bloody hands of politicians that refused to come clean and are now in CYA mode.
To answer the million dollar question we need to travel back to 2005. In a news report by Catherine Herridge, a top secret data mining program known as Able Danger had identified four 9/11 hijackers more than a year prior to the attacks. Those four hijackers were identified as: 1.) Mohammed Atta 2.) Marwan al-Shehhi 3.) Nawaf al-Hazmi and 4.) Khalid al-Mihdhar.
Both al-Mihdhar and al-Hazmi – along with a third hijacker Hani Hanjour – had also attended the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, VA headed by Bassam Estwani. Anwar al-Awlaki, the man who inspired Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Malik Hasan, was the imam of the mosque at the time. He was hired by Esam Omeish, who has been a controversial figure in his own right and can be seen in the far right of this photo taken outside the U.S. Capitol on the day Estwani delivered a prayer on the House floor at the request of his Congressman – Rep. Thomas M. Davis (R-VA):
This was a catalyst for some powerful U.S politicians who welcomed some very shoddy Muslim leaders into their circles. On February 7, 2001 Estwani opened the proceedings on the House floor at the invitation of Davis. Here is part of what Davis said after Estwani’s prayer:
Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank Mr. Imam Bassam A. Estwani for joining us today as the guest chaplain and offering this morning’s prayer. He is the chairman of the board of the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center, which is one of the Nation’s most active and influential mosques, located in the 11th Congressional District, which I represent. He has participated in many international conferences that focus on Islam and religious values in America. He has been instrumental in bringing members of different faith communities together to promote social justice.
Did a Republican congressman praise a prominent Muslim figure for his work in promoting social justice? Uh, yes. It’s worthy of note that as Able Danger was being shut down, the chairman of the mosque it would have exposed was speaking on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Beginning in March or April of 2000,the coverup commenced when the process of shutting down Able Danger began as federal agents began to confiscate the program’s data according to James D. Smith, who worked for a company that was assisting on the project. By late 2000, data collection ceased. In the spring of 2001, the program was essentially shut down.
Estwani then started his prostitution as he lured and met with two other prominent figures in March of that year – President Bill Clinton and House Speaker Dennis Hastert, a Republican. There is no evidence that any discussions about Able Danger took place or that Estwani was even feeling any heat but it is noteworthy that the head of a very notorious mosque, identified by IPT’s Steven Emerson as “one of the most radical mosques in the United States”, would clearly have been interested in acting as a heat shield for his place of business. In fact, each photo like this served such a purpose.
If there was one congressman who seized on the Able Danger investigation, it was Rep. Curt Weldon (R-PA) but Hastert was personally introduced to the scandal as well. It’s safe to say that he didn’t have the same level of interest in pursuing it that either Weldon or Shaffer did.
Earlier this year, Shoebat.com brought you several damning photos of Estwani and U.S. politicians courtesy of Estwani’s facebook page. After our expose, the page magically no longer exists.
There is a new facebook page for a Bassam Estwani but the feature photo is someone other than the former Dar al-Hijrah chairman. The only photos on the new page are the cover and profile photos. The treasure trove of photos are gone (though we still have many of them). Like the Estwani in question, the new facebook page identifies him as being from Syria; it also states he lives in Turkey.
Rep. Davis should be required to come clean about prostituting himself to Estwani, the former Chairman of a mosque that was home to Anwar al-Awlaki and visited by three of the 9/11 hijackers. It should also be determined if the findings of the 9/11 Commission were compromised in any way by that relationship.
With an eye on Turkey’s agenda, consider another major harlot, the old hag, Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi. He recently traveled to Turkey, which has increasingly become the main brothel in which Muslim Brotherhood leaders can still perform its tricks. During that trip, al-Qaradawi called for an Islamic Caliphate to be centered there as Shoebat.com reported.
Prior to being banned from the U.S. in 1999, al-Qaradawi visited Dar al-Hijrah and is seen with Estwani in this photograph (taken from the facebook page that no longer exists):
There you have it. A common thread between three 9/11 hijackers – two of whom were identified by Able Danger – and Yusuf al-Qaradawi is Dar al-Hijrah and Estwani. This would be the same Estwani who spent years copulating with American politicians while currying favors for Lucifer, the devil about whom Ezekiel the prophet put it best:
“There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses.” (Ezekiel 23:20)
In addition, Estwani serves on the Board of the Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF), which today lobbies Capitol Hill for aid to Syria’s rebel pimps. These would be the same Syrian rebels that the U.S. House and Senate recently voted to arm.
But America is still not devoid of saints. In his testimony, Shaffer, insisted that when he met with Executive Director of the 9/11 Commission Philip Zelikow in Afghanistan, Zelikow was blown away by the information about Able Danger and handed Shaffer his business card. When Shaffer returned to the U.S., there was no interest in the program. In fact, Shaffer was targeted for career destruction.
As Shoebat.com reported, though Zelikow chose to side against Shaffer, he also chose the side of the Muslim Brotherhood, at least in 2007. While attending the U.S.-Islamic World Forum (US-IWF) in Doha, Qatar – an annual event co-sponsored by Qatar and Brookings Institute – Zelikow shared a stage with none other than al-Qaradawi himself:
Hopefully this helps provide more than enough righteous indignation and saintly outrage!
