Obama's Muslim affairs coordinator resigns

Obama’s campaign says it is looking for a new Muslim outreach adviser.
(CNN) — After barely a week on the job, Barack Obama's Muslim outreach adviser resigned from the campaign after an old business connection with a fundamentalist Islamic imam surfaced last week.
Mazen Asbahi, a Chicago corporate lawyer, stepped down Monday after joining the campaign on July 26 as its national coordinator for Muslim affairs. The Wall Street Journal first reported the resignation on Tuesday night.
In a letter to the campaign, Asbahi wrote, "I am stepping down from the volunteer role I recently agreed to take on with the Obama campaign as Arab American and Muslim American outreach coordinator in order to avoid distracting from Barack Obama's message of change."
Asbahi served on the board of the Delaware-based Allied Assets Advisors Fund for a brief period in 2000 with Jamal Said, the imam of a fundamentalist mosque outside Chicago, the Wall Street Journal reports. The report links Said to fundamentalist groups Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood and says he was named by the Justice Department as an unindicted co-conspirator in the racketeering trial of suspected Hamas fundraisers that ended in a mistrial.
"I served on that board for only a few weeks before resigning as soon as I became aware of public allegations against another member of the board," Asbahi wrote in his letter to the campaign.
The fund is a subsidiary of a company that promotes a conservative brand of Islam and Asbahi regularly speaks to groups with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the newspaper reported.
"Mr. Asbahi has informed the campaign that he no longer wishes to serve in his volunteer position, and we are in the process of searching for a new national Arab American and Muslim American outreach coordinator," Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt wrote in an e-mail.
Obama has had to balance dispelling rumors that he is a Muslim while trying not to offend Muslims.
"This is a classic example of a no-win situation, right?" Obama responded at a forum for minority journalists on July 27 when asked if he will visit a mosque as a candidate.
"I have repeatedly on various occasions said I am not a Muslim, but this whole strategy of suggesting that I am is indicative of anti-Muslim sentiment that we have to fight against."
I read part of an article about BO. There is a question about his father's birth. His birth certificate lists him as 'ARAB' not African. I understand that about 99.9% of Arabs are muslim.
Kind of makes one wonder just why a presidential candidate has muslim PR person on their staff in the first place.
For a guy who states that "he is not a muslim", he sure goes out of his way to cater to them.
It seems to me that based on he shaky standing in the Jewish community he would have some sort of person acting in the same role.
Do you also notice that he will ALWAYS mention the muslim religion when he talks of inclusion but he always leaves off the Jewish religion, the Buddist religion, the Hindu religion.
Face it...he's a closet muslim.
The news story does not support the thread headline, in fact it contradicts it.
There is not that much discussion of real issues so far in the election by either the candidates or anyone else. Yet this election decides critical things for the United States including its relative independence and future as a developed country. Our current government is trading off both of these things and disguising it to the voters by using up the accumulated credit rating of past generations of Americans.
There's no free lunch.
Just think, the liberal right in our gov't has imported enough muslims into this country to support over 2000 mosques. This liberal right philosophy goes back to Jimmy Carter that supported the philosophy that radical muslims were not terrorists. It has now been researched to show that out of all muslims approx. 70% of them are radicals, supporters of or sympathizers of the radical movement and a danger to our country and our gov't has steadily been importing them for almost 40 years.
