Mohamed Magid is the Obama administration’s go-to guy for Muslim outreach and advise on international affairs and counterterrorism. He is a regular visitor to the White House (even when the administration wants to conceal it), attends important administration speeches on the US Middle East policy at the State Department, he counsels the Department of Justice to criminalize defamation of Islam, he entertains the deputy national security adviser at his DC-area mosque, and he serves on the Department of Homeland Security’s Countering Violent Extremism Working Group. He also advises the FBI and many other federal agencies.
He has also been profiled by Time Magazine and the Huffington Post has even dubbed him “America’s Imam“. His ubiquitous presence across the Obama administration undoubtedly makes him the most influential and sought after Muslim authority in the country.
Imam Magid also serves as the president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). In that capacity last weekend he presided over ISNA’s “Diversity Forum” held in Dearborn (where Muslim residents were recently video recorded stoning Christian protestors).
One of the speakers at the ISNA Diversity Forum was CAIR-Michigan executive director Dawud Walid. Imam Magid even gave a “diversity award” to Walid, as seen in the photo below:
…Imam Magid’s endorsement of Walid’s outspoken Jew-hatred raises some serious questions about who Obama is getting his advice from, but it does answer some questions about the inspiration for the Obama administration’s ongoing “Islamophobia” witchhunt.
But handing a “diversity award” to an unashamed Jew-hater doesn’t make Dawud Walid a diversity hero. It does, however, say something about Obama’s shariah czar Mohamed Magid.
What a dreadful shame that our terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad president has filled countless positions in his administration with America-hating, freedom-hating Muslim Brotherhood operatives. Do you suppose he knows what he’s done? Does Obama understand that these fellows associated with the Muslim Brotherhood mean to do us harm? Or is Obama clueless? Which is worse?
