In June Obama nominated and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano appointed Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development.
The appointment of two “devout” Muslims to critical, sensitive positions in the Department of Homeland Security leaves our nation more open to further attacks. We must never forget that nine “devout” Muslim men killed 3,000 American citizens when they flew hi-jacked planes into American buildings and a “devout” Muslim man killed 13 people inside Fort Hood.
Now think about this for a moment. Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...?
Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn't this make you feel safer already? That should make our home land much safer, huh!
Propaganda released by DHS was a barrage of praise for Alkihan who brings a “broad and impressive array of experience in national security, emergency preparedness and counterterrorism to the Department...Arif comes from Los Angeles Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa’s office, where he served as Deputy Mayor of Homeland Security and Public Safety. As a key adviser to the Mayor, he has led the City’s efforts to develop homeland security, emergency management and law enforcement initiatives, including operational oversight of Los Angeles Police, Fire and Emergency Management departments. He is a former federal prosecutor and senior advisor to the U.S. Attorney General, and has partnered extensively with local, state and federal agencies.”
What their propaganda release DOESN’T mention is that Alikhan played a key role in the removal of the LAPD "Mapping" Plan which involved mapping Muslim communities in an effort to identify potential hotbeds of extremism. LAPD officials said that it was crucial for them to gain a better understanding of isolated parts of the Muslim community because those groups can potentially breed violent extremism.
Alikhan also reportedly helped raise funds for the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) that has labeled a deadly anti-U.S. terrorist attack a legitimate operation, referred to terrorists as "freedom fighters" and equated Muslim jihad with the sentiments of American statesman Patrick Henry. He joined MPAC on April 11 for a special fundraiser called "Be the Change" to support what the group calls its innovative leadership development programs.
Napolitano also swore-in Kareem Shora, a “devout Muslim,” who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC). Shora is or once was the head of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, or ADC an Arab-American organization whose officials have labeled deadly anti-U.S. jihadists as “heroes” and opposed referring to Hamas as a terrorist organization.
The ADC, also has close ties to anti-Israel professor Rashid Khalidi, whose association with President Obama stirred controversy during the last presidential campaign.
