Obama Appoints 2 Devout Muslims for Homeland Security

By Henk Kamsteeg

The Secretary of Homeland ecurity, Janet Napolitano, was proud to announce the intention of US President Obama to nominate David Heyman as Assistant Secretary for Policy and Arif Alikhan as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development. Both individuals apparently bring a broad and impressive array of experience in national security, emergency preparedness and counterterrorism to the Department.

Mr. Alikhan, a devout Sunni Muslim, was instrumental in taking down the LA Police Department's plan to monitor it's Muslim community. Alikhan is affiliated with MPAC, the "Muslim Public Affairs Council". From its inception, MPAC presented itself as more inclusive, and more open to peaceful coexistence with Jews and Christians, than other Arab and Muslim groups, and sought to make Americans comfortable with Islam by showing how much the religion embraced core American values.

In June 2009, Kareem Shora, who was born in Damascus, Syria, was recently appointed as a member of the Homeland Security Council. Shora is the ADC's national executive director whose officials have labeled deadly anti-U.S. jihadists as "heroes" and opposed referring to Hamas as a terrorist organization. He is the first Arab rights advocate on the panel.
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee takes an openly anti-Israel line. Its official material has accused the Jewish state of "apartheid" and "atrocities" against the Palestinians. In 2006, a local ADC group drew up a petition calling on the U.S. to stop providing Israel with weapons.
In 1994, during one of the main peaks of Hamas suicide bombings against Israeli civilians, then-ADC President Hamzi Moghrabi said, "I will not call [Hamas] a terrorist organization. I mean, I know many people in Hamas. They are very respectable. … I don't believe Hamas, as an organization, is a violent organization."
Two years later, Moghrabi's successor, Hala Maksoud, defended the Hezbollah terrorist group. "I find it shocking," Maksoud said, "that [one] would include Hezbollah in … [an] inventory of Middle East 'terrorist' groups."
In 2000, new ADC President Hussein Ibish characterized Hezbollah as "a disciplined and responsible liberation force."
When Israel released Hezbollah prisoners in early 2004, Imad Hamad, ADC's Midwest Regional Director, openly celebrated the freedom of "the heroes," as noted by Daniel Pipes.

Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions?
Doesn’t this make you feel safer already?

Was it not men of the “Devout Muslim Faith” who flew planes into US buildings not too long ago?
