Time for some DOJ firings, right nowTopics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
Rachel Abrams, writing at The Blog, asks How About Some Justice Department Firings Right Now? For me, her piece answers that question:
Jen Rubin has an exclusive story at Pajamas Media that should horrify every law-abiding American: the Department of Justice is seeking volunteers for the "unique opportunity" of manning a booth at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) Convention, which will take place in Washington, D.C. over the July 4th weekend. As Jen notes, the Investigative Project on Terrorism describes ISNA thus:Let's recall that the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is directly controlled by Saudi Arabia and enforces the highly radical Wahhabi theological writ in America's 1,200 officially recognized mosques (out of a possible total of 4,000, including unrecognized and small congregations), by which ISNA controls most mosques in America and thus also controls who will speak at every Friday prayer, and which literature will be distributed there. Also, that ISNA is one of the groups pointed to in US Senator Charles Schumer's September 2001 press release discussing the role that top officials in the Saudi government, including Interior Minister Prince Naif , play in spreading militant Wahhabism in the United States and throughout the Middle East.ISNA was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas-support prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), which ended in the conviction of five former HLF officials on 108 counts. Federal prosecutors identified ISNA as a "member organization" of the "U.S. Muslim Brotherhood" on its list of Unindicted Co-conspirators and/or Joint Venturers.Will we hear angry calls from Democrats in Congress and elsewhere for investigations of this amazing decision? Jen hasn't yet received a reply from DOJ to her query about it. Watch for further developments on both counts. But don't hold your breath.
Is it time to fire some people at the DOJ for sheer stupidity and ignoring a threat to the U.S.? I would say, most emphatically, indeed so.
