Why does this position have to be part of the Obama Administration, and why do wee need such a envoy?

Salam al-MarayatiObama Adviser and

founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council

and is its current executive director

Muslim Public Affairs Council:

According to Wikipedia:

History

MPAC was founded in 1986 as the “Political Action Committee of the Islamic Center of Southern California”. It was later renamed in 1988 to the “Muslim Public Affairs Council.”[1]

In its history, it has condemned the death fatwa against Salman Rushdie and the attacks on the World Trade Center, and denounced the Taliban and Osama bin Laden.[1]

Statement by President Salam al-Marayati, regarding the September 11, 2001 terror attacks: “If we’re going to look at suspects, we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what’s happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies.”[2]

Mahdi Bray formerly was political director of MPAC.[3][4]

Envisioning Peace: Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Calling it the “most complicated and intractable (issue) of our time” MPAC recommends a peaceful solution which will lead to coexistence and mutual respect. “The Muslim Public Affairs Council believes that this dialogue will lead to a strategy to end this conflict that has taken too many lives and has destabilized an entire region of global significance.” Their position paper states:.[5]

  1. ” At MPAC’s core is an Islamic sensibility that human beings should conduct their lives in accordance with a higher ethical and moral wisdom, tested through the ages and designed to afford maximum dignity and justice to human life. It is these ideals shared by our friends in the interfaith community, that we appeal to as we continue to travel the extremely difficult road of peace between Israelis and Palestinians.”
  2. “In addition to offering our position as stated above as clearly as possible with the hopes of facilitating fruitful and honest dialogue and strategizing, we conclude by offering principles for the pro-Israel camp to engage with us in the future in a manner that we believe will yield better results enabling us to have a positive influence on the peace process.”

Actions against terrorism

MPAC started “The National Grassroots Campaign to Fight Terrorism” by providing guidelines to American Muslim community leaders to ensure that Mosques are not used by potential terrorists and to monitor activities inside Mosques. This program is instituted in cooperation with Mosques across this great country to regulate what kind of groups may assemble in a Mosque and inform the United States Department of Homeland Security if any suspicious activity takes place.[6]

Large publications have taken a note of MPAC’s activities to prevent terrorism on American soil. The Wall Street Journal praised American Muslims for being “part of the solution”.[7] The Philadelphia Inquirer said to “credit Muslims who speak out” against terrorism.[7]

According to Muslim Public Affairs Council:

Our Vision & Mission

OUR MISSION

MPAC is an American institution which informs and shapes public opinion and policy by serving as a trusted resource to decision makers in government, media and policy institutions. MPAC is also committed to developing leaders with the purpose of enhancing the political and civic participation of American Muslims.

OUR VISION

To establish a vibrant Muslim American community that will enrich American society through promoting the Islamic values of mercy, justice, peace, human dignity, freedom, and equality for all.

Mercy: “And thus O Prophet, we have sent thee as (an evidence of Our) grace towards all the worlds.” (Quran 21:107)

Justice: “O you who have attained to faith! Be ever steadfast in upholding equity, bearing witness to the truth for the sake of God, even though it be against your own selves or your parents and kinsfolk. Whether the person concerned be rich or poor, God’s claim takes precedence over (the claims of) either of them. Do not, then, follow your own desire, lest you swerve from justice: for if you distort (the truth), behold, God is indeed aware of all that you do!” (Quran 4:135)

Peace: “But if they incline to peace, incline thou to it as well, and place thy trust in God: verily, He alone is all-hearing, all-knowing!” (Quran 8:61)

Human Dignity: “Now, indeed, We have conferred dignity on all the children of Adam, and born them over land and sea, and provided for them sustenance out of the good things of life, and favored them far above most of Our creation.” (Quran 17:70)

Freedom: “There shall be no coercion in matters of faith. Distinct has now become the right way from (the way of) error: hence, he who rejects the powers of evil and believes in God has indeed taken hold of a support most unfailing, whiich shall never give way: for God is all-hearing, all-knowing.” (Quran 2:256)

Equality for All: “O men! Behold, We have created you all out of a male and a female, and have made you into nations and tribes, so that you may come to know one another. Verily, the noblest of you in the sight of God is the one who is most deeply conscious of Him. Behold, God is all-knowing, all-aware.” (Quran 49:13)

OUR WORK

As a community-based policy advocacy group working for the integration of Muslims into American pluralism, MPAC actively strives to effect policy reforms that uphold core American values and preserve Constitutionally protected freedoms of all Americans.

Our staff members in Washington, DC and Los Angeles advise government agencies on national security and civil rights issues, provide comment and background to reporters and other media professionals to inform public opinion, advise the entertainment industry on creating humanizing portrayals of Islam and Muslims, and assisting victims of hate crimes/incidents and to prevent hate crimes, and building alliances with diverse communities and cultivating relationships with opinion- and decision-makers.

the Islamic Society of North America

Islamic Society of North America: 

According to Wikipedia:

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), based in Plainfield, Indiana, USA, is a Muslim umbrella group. It has been described in the media as the largest Muslim organization in North America.[1][2][3]

History

ISNA traces its origins to a meeting of several Muslim student organizations in 1963, at which the Muslim Student Association of the U.S. & Canada (“The MSA”) was formed in January 1963. ISNA regards the MSA’s 1963 convention as its first one, held at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Present-day ISNA was founded in 1982 through a joint effort of four organizations: The Muslim Students Association of the US and Canada (The MSA), Islamic Medical Association (IMA), the Association of Muslim Social Scientists (AMSS), and the Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers (AMSE) – to create a community-oriented organization due to the changing nature of the growing Muslim community.[4][5][6] Many of the leaders of these four founding organizations took leadership roles in the newly-formed ISNA. In 1983, ISNA completed a $21 million ($48,405,947 today) headquarters complex in suburban Indianapolis using funds raised in part from international sources.[4] In 2008, it claimed 4,000 members.[7]

Goals

ISNA’s goal is “to be an exemplary and unifying Islamic organization in North America that contributes to the betterment of the Muslim community and society at large.” ISNA is an association of Muslim organizations and individuals that provides a common platform for presenting Islam, supporting Muslim communities, developing educational, social and outreach programs and fostering good relations with other religious communities, and civic and service organizations.

Since 1982, ISNA’s structure has changed, with several organizations either becoming defunct, or simply leaving ISNA’s umbrella. Currently, ISNA includes under its umbrella: Muslim Student Association (MSA), the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), Canadian Islamic Trust Foundation (CITF; NAIT’s counterpart in Canada), Association of Muslim Scientists and Engineers (AMSE), Islamic Medical Association of North America (IMANA), and the Muslim Youth of North America (MYNA)[8][9] Other organizations that either left ISNA or were disbanded include: Muslim Communities Association (MCA), Islamic Teaching Center (ITC), the Association of Muslim Social Scientists (AMSS), Islamic Media Foundation (IMF), and Foundation for International Development (FID), among others. It should be noted that although each of the umbrella groups under ISNA has a seat in the ISNA Board of Directors, ISNA itself has no reciprocal seat or say in the leadership of the lower umbrella groups.

This is scary!!!

The foxes are now officially living in the hen house, influencing policy, laws, societal structure, attitudes and definitions what makes up our society.

Now ask me why I am very concerned!!! These added voices that are made up of people,whose religion has stated it’s single desire to wipe out “all infidels”, are in authoritarian positions to effect changes that benefit Islam and NOT Americans. In spite of their claimed visions and purposes, their ACTIONS have made it clear that they are determined to install Sharia Law as Law of the Land, Islam as the religion of the America, and the destruction of all who withstand such tyranny.

Do you feel OK with this???

How can this happen, and when will we wake up??? We are quiet while our Country is being drastically changed!!!

If you’re not CONCERNED, IGNORE this, go to bed tonight…sleep well!

Otherwise, get the word out! 

We’ve got to have some relief starting with the 2014 Elections!
