If it's not giving millions of taxpayer dollars to radical liberal and highly partisan activists, it's associating with radical Islamists; the list of strange company the Obama administration associates itself with is anything but acceptable to mainstream America.
Take for example Obama's adviser that wants Syrian 'resistance' to Israel:
As reported on Jihad Watch this week, an adviser to President Obama has tweeted a criticism of President Bashar Assad of Syria for not being able to mount enough "resistance" to Israel. In the Arab and Middle Eastern context resistance is, of course, a codeword for terrorism and war.
href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dalia_Mogahed"target=_blank"">Dalia Mogahed. Yet another example of the strange company Obama has kept and continues to keep, he appointed her to serve on the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. On March 10 she tweeted on her Twitter account:
To those siding w/Assad: he cannot deliver stability, protection of minorities, or resistance to Israel. He is a killer w/o legitimacy.It wasn't Mogahed's first venture in radicalism. Two years ago she advocated Sharia law on British TV, saying it provided "gender justice" even though, as Robert Spencer noted at the time, Sharia prescribes wife-beating, permits taking the vows with prepubescent girls, and discriminates against women in matters of testimony, inheritance, marriage and divorce.
Indeed, the show was hosted by a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir -- banned as a terrorist organization by many countries -- and included two Hizb ut-Tahrir guests who denounced Western society and called to make Sharia "the source of legislation." Hizb ut-Tahrir's alumni include 9/11 architect Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Jordanian jihadist Abu Musab Zarqawi, killed by U.S. forces in Iraq in 2006.
Mogahed was also coauthor with John Esposito of Who Speaks For Islam?: What a Billion Muslims Really Think -- a book whose blatant distortions of poll data were exposed by Robert Satloff among others. Arabian Business magazine has named Mogahed one of the Arab world's most influential women.
And what of her take on Assad? Does he indeed come up short on "resistance to Israel"?More here.
In normal and more rational times, and with a less complicit corporate media, any administration that associated itself with such people, organizations, and ideology and/or pro-terrorism/anti-Israel positions would be thoroughly and soundly rejected by the American people. Sadly, these are not normal nor rational times, and the Obama administration and essentially everything Obama does is under the umbrella of the liberal progressive media's protection.
