Though you won’t read it in the major papers, Abdurahman Alamoudi, who the Washington Post says "gave Muslim Americans unparalleled access to the White House and Congress" and who was indicted yesterday is, according to smaller media, giving Federal agents leads into a right wing Muslim penetration of the conservative wing of the Republican party.
According to an October 13th story on Insightmag.com, Mr. Alamoudi:
Operated to finance terrorists inside the United States and abroad, while penetrating the U.S. political system to weaken federal antiterrorism laws…Alamoudi spearheaded efforts to install radical Muslim chaplains inside the U.S. Armed Forces…one of the names that keeps coming up in the activities they are looking at is that of Grover Norquist, the influential GOP "big-tent" organizer and chairman of Americans for Tax Reform…
This story could be bigger than the outing of Ambassador Wilson’s wife.
Aside from the penetration of parts of the Federal government by radical Muslims, could this unholy union with America’s radical right have had any impact on last November’s discharge of six highly rated Arabic linguists from the Defense Language Institute in California?
Meanwhile, yesterday, darling of the right and Supreme Court mullah Antonin Scalia entertained fellow travelers at the partially Richard Scaife-funded Intercollegiate Studies Institute, a private conservative education organization, by ridiculing the Supreme Court’s ruling in the June Texas antisodomy case.
According to the Associated Press and Yahoo:
Scalia adopted a mocking tone to read from the court's June ruling that struck down state antisodomy laws in Texas and elsewhere. Scalia wrote a bitter dissent in the gay sex case that was longer than the ruling itself.
On Thursday, Scalia said judges, including his colleagues on the Supreme Court, throw over the original meaning of the Constitution when it suits them. "Most of today's experts on the Constitution think the document written in Philadelphia in 1787 was simply an early attempt at the construction of what is called a liberal political order”.
Prudent conservatives may want to take note of this BBC report:
