Here are some incomplete thoughts on Barack Hussein Obama from the top of my head. I call my thoughts incomplete because I doubt my memory is complete or exhaustive.
One of Obama’s stops on his apology tour was Cairo, Egypt. There he denigrated the USA and made sure the Muslim Brotherhood was present for his speech. Later Obama abandoned Mubarak who had been a loyal friend to America’s agenda in the Middle East. Then Obama embraced the Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohamed Morsi for Egypt’s office of President who actually won his election by a narrow margin.
I recall Obama has invited Muslim Brotherhood members to talk to the Obama Administration for some kind of meeting (See Also HERE). Also Obama has had Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers as a part of his staff or advisors in some form or fashion (See also HERE).
The current military government of Egypt has declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist entity and yet Obama is still hesitant to also add the MB to America’s terrorist list (See HERE and HERE). Now I have found out that a Jihadist defector - Sheikh Nabil Naeem – in an interview with Patrick Poole and Steve Coughlin, has fingered a connection between the MB and al Qaeda. The same defector has insinuated an MB link to wait for it … ISIS. Also Sheikh Nabil announced the MB’s so-called renunciation of violence was a lie.
Obama imported 1,682 Syrian refugees for fiscal year 2015 and officially 10,000 (maybe more) are slated for fiscal year 2016. Since 96% of these slated refugees are Sunni Muslims, the same brand as ISIS claims to be, and roughly 13% are sympathetic to radicalization; can anyone logically believe a hotbed of terrorism is being brought to the USA?
Combine this with the known 82 radical Islamic Mosques (See Below) in America preaching Quranic hatred toward non-Muslims – meaning death to America, no constitutional but Sharia Law – what makes anyone think the common unrest inflicted on Europe will soon be seen in the United States of America? Is Obama support for Islamist organizations and Mosques in the USA the beginning of European-style Islamic terrorism in America?

Clarion Project's National Security Analyst, Prof. Ryan Mauro, appears on "Fox & Friends" to discuss its identification of over 80 radical Islamic organizations in the U.S., particularly mosques.
Mauro explains the need to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization and the extremism of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Virginia; Islamic Society of Boston; Masjid At-Taqwa in New York and the North American Islamic Trust that owns mosques in over 40 states.
Airdate: November 25, 2015.
The four organizations discussed in the segment are:
o Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Virginia. Shocking video showed its imam preaching that Muslims should be first in line to pick up weapons for violent jihad and characterizing the West as an adversary. The Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center is involved in prison outreach in Washington, D.C.
o Islamic Society of Boston (and its Cultural Center), which have significant Muslim Brotherhood links and extremist histories. A Muslim activist who fled Egypt to get away from the Brotherhood's radicalism told the Clarion Project how he was shocked to find its ideology at the mosque.
o Masjid At-Taqwa of New York, led by the extremely radical and influential cleric Siraj Wahhaj. In 2011, he advised Muslims to stop talking about sharia because "we're not there yet."
o North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), an organization that owns many mosques across the country. The Justice Department says it is an "entity" of the Muslim Brotherhood's Palestine Committee, a sub-division secretly established to support the Hamas terrorist group.
The segment follows the Daily Caller's creation of a map of over 80 radical mosques based on Clarion's research. This is about four percent of the estimated 2,106 mosques in the U.S., the news site wrote.
In addition to those 83 sites, there are many other Islamist organizations operating in the U.S. and mosques due to be written about. You can learn about Islamist groups in your state by searching the Islamist Organizations in America section of our website that is continuously updated.
The North American Islamic Trust's (NAIT's) website says it owns mosques in 42 states and has stated that it owns the titles to over 325 properties.

In January, a prominent Muslim leader in the United Kingdom with links to the Muslim Brotherhood estimated that half of the mosques in America were founded by Brotherhood members.
Senator Ted Cruz has introduced important legislation to help get the Muslim Brotherhood designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The House version of the bill was introduced by Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and is now endorsed by five additional representatives.
We encourage readers to ask their congressmen and Senators (and presidential candidates) for their statements on this legislation and/or their general position on designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group.
