State Dept. tweets link to radical Muslim cleric. When does this become treasonous?

Last week, we reported on the Clarion Project’s detail of the Obama administration’s lies regarding their involvement with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Now, the Washington Free Beacon reveals that the State Department’s Counter Terrorism (CT) Bureau promoted on Friday a radical Muslim cleric whose organization has reportedly backed Hamas and endorsed a fatwa authorizing the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.

The CT bureau on Friday tweeted out a link to the official website of Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah, the vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a controversial organization founded by a Muslim Brotherhood leader “who has called for the death of Jews and Americans and himself is banned from visiting the U.S.” The tweet has since been removed, but here’s how it appeared:


Folks, I’m sorry to keep saying this, but you just cannot make this stuff up. And I have to ask, when does it become treasonous, this aiding and abetting the enemy?

Of course it was the same Muslim cleric bin Bayyah who was granted a meeting in June 2013 in the Obama White House with top-level national security council members. He was confirmed to have met with members of Obama’s National Security Council at the White House to discuss poverty and global health efforts.

Bin Bayyah is reported to have been one of several clerics who endorsed a 2004 fatwa that endorsed resistance against Americans fighting in Iraq.

The CT Bureau tweet linked to a press release on Bin Bayyah’s site condemning the kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian girls by the Boko Haram group. However, Bin Bayyah himself has been known to back controversial causes. Bin Bayyah has ‘urged the U.N. to criminalize blasphemy,’ according to reports, and spoke ‘out in favor of Hamas,’ the terror group that rules over the West Bank. The cleric also issued a fatwa in 2009 ‘barring ‘all forms of normalization’ with Israel,’ according to Fox news.

My question is simple, is the Obama administration so lacking in character that it will join arms with anyone? I can see no reason for the US State Department to retweet anything from a radical Islamic cleric or invite him into the White House. Am I missing something?

The Free Beacon reports that terrorism analyst Patrick Poole said the State Department must more carefully choose the Muslim leaders it promotes. Gee, ya think?

“This administration is continuing to push extremist clerics like Bin Bayyah as part of a fantasy foreign policy that somehow they are somehow a counter to al Qaeda,” Poole said. “But in Bin Bayyah’s case, it was his organization that issued the fatwa allowing for the killing of U.S. soldiers in Iraq and said it was a duty for Muslims all over the world to support the Iraqi ‘resistance’ against the United States that gave religious justification for al Qaeda’s terrorism. “And [Bin Bayyah] said nothing as his pal Qaradawi issued fatwas authorizing the use of suicide bombings and publicly defended terrorist groups like Hamas, Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad,” Poole added. “If anything, clerics like Bin Bayyah and [Yusuf] Qaradawi have actively aided al Qaeda.”

Yusuf Qaradawi, the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader who founded the IUMS—where Bin Bayyah served as vice president—has been called a “theologian of terror” by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). And what percentage of the Jewish community voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012?

Oh well, if you’re Barack Hussein Obama, you can do no wrong and you’re never held accountable or responsible — and he knows that. So when does it become treason? Or it is just acceptable behavior?


  1. This administration has gone way beyond treason. The problem is that there is no one with the courage to stop him or hold him accountable.

    • We need a leader ( Yes ) Allen we need a Leader like you! Please” Someone.. For Our Countries sake!!!!

  2. I’ve said this for years. Obama knows what he’s doing and as long as no one is going to stop him, it will continue. So who’s to blame?
    We The People are. This is our watch and we, as citizens of this Republic, are ultimately responsible for what happens to it. For too long we’ve looked to government to solve our problems when we should look to ourselves and each other to fix things. In this we have failed and will continue to fail. In the coming presidential elections, check the numbers and you’ll see that based on the Electoral College as it stands today, it is virtually impossible for a Republican to win the White House.
    We’re more concerned about the latest football drafts than about the state of the Republic. It makes me literally cry to think about what we have become.

  3. If this administration had the balls, they would declare any Muslim cleric issuing a fatwa against American citizens as a direct threat to the US, and place a bounty on his head for death, in order to send a message to the Muslim world.

  4. I’d like to thank Mr West…He is not the only lone voice in the wilderness, but he is the only voice that the left wing media has not figured out how to attack. But he is still a brave man for saying the truth.

  5. The Obama administration is so lacking in character, patriotism, intelligence, common sense and decency that committing treason is done on whim. What shocks Americans even more is that Congress allows it to continue. Americans are only temporarily stunned. I both fear and look forward to what will happen when We The People cease imploring our representatives in Washington to act and take matters into our own hands.

  6. You cannot call the actions of his administration treasonous, that would be racist.
    You cannot disagree with the actions of his administration, that would be bigoted.
    You cannot offer different solutions than his administration, that would be prejudice.
    You cannot exercise your first amendment right unless you agree with the actions of his administration, that would be an attempt to enslave minorities.

    Saul Alinsky knew the most effective way to win a debate isn’t with facts, but instead with ad hominem and straw-man logic. The current administration are well adept at these tactics.

  7. It is treasonous only when the lower class engages in it, i.e., a soldier, a civilian employee, a citizen off the street (double standard you know?)…. The government (especially this administration) will always justify their conduct as being of higher standard. This is treason and should be handled as such. Unfortunately we don’t have an Attorney General or a US Congress with the backbone to go up against the Obama administration.

  8. If Mankind does not read and understand history they are prone to repeat it. This nation has managed to create an elite ruling class who believe they are above the laws that they passed onto the citizens of this nation, all the while creating massive financial fortunes for them selves. We are swiftly approaching where France was prior to their revolution. Hopefully the citizens of this nation will use our power of the vote to rid the nation of these elitists before history is repeated.

    • When you realize that a certain ethnic group control all liberal media, the banks, politics and have been indoctrinating our school children and college students it’s a tough fight against them now. IMHO their main agenda is total control of the population, and are they already not there, or close to it? Who do you think was behind the efforts of destroying Sarah Palin, they saw her and her values as a real threat to their agenda. (They) also threatened Glenn Beck (Soros-Jewish), as he is one of them. Good luck beating them, they are great masters of deception, and powerful as a group is putting it mildly.

      • They actually pay you to post your BS on this page? Talk about an ignorant cracker…….You win the pogey bait moron.

  9. They will never stop as long has the muslim in chief is in the white house. If this doesn’t finally convince people that he is a follower of Allah then I do not know what will. He doesn’t even try to hide it now. He openly betrays the country and Congress does nothing. WHY? they are all in it together with few exceptions.

  10. It became treasonous as soon as it occurred. The problems lies with the fact that we have no members of Congress willing to treat it as such and do anything about it. I say the DNC supports anything from the White House, as a matter of “saving-face”, while the GOP refuses to be the congressional villains who impeached our first Black President: if that isn’t a “Catch 22” , what is? This is why Obama has been trampling all over the Constitution and our Constitutional rights. He has no qualified opposition!

  11. The liberal press is to blame. Boycott them and watch FOX news! Unless of course you’d rather hear cute stories and ignore the REAL problems!

    • Fox News gets cited at least once a month for inventing fake news stories to get idiots like you riled up.

      • Cited by whom you MORON. You are a liberal zombie and believe what lamestream media tells you! The media has idiots like you and YOU are what is wrong with America today.

    • Since when is exposing and telling the truth and facts bigoted? He is anything but bigoted, he’s a good man with good intentions, that’s my take on Allen west.

      • If 90% of your post are muslim based and muslim myths…I would take that as evidence that you are a BIGOT

      • Is anything he is saying false?……if no then the bigot doesn’t stick. I get called everything in the book constantly for stating inconvenient facts and speaking the truth, that’s fine with me, so long as I know what I posted is truthful. Some people, liberals mostly, hate inconvenient facts.

      • So far you haven’t proved that anything he’s said isn’t true! Instead of spewing your hate, prove to us he’s wrong… back your vitriol up with FACTS!

      • Must have learned the art from watching the administration, then. Good job Allen, keep ’em coming.

      • Willy, the trolln doesn’t know the difference between the Sun and a light bulb. Let it be, they disappear. Muslims were the problem since Hagar gave a birth to Ishmael. “Then, Genesis 16:11-12, the Angel of the Lord reveals the future of Hagar’s unborn baby to her: “The angel of the LORD also said to her: ‘You are now pregnant and you will give birth to a son. You shall name him Ishmael [which means ‘God hears’], for the LORD has heard of your misery. He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.'”

      • Since when is inventing something that didn’t happen just to get stupid people to support an insurrection “truth”?

    • If Col West is a bigot, then I must be one as well. Islam is a problem. If you cannot see that, you must be blind, Earl.

  12. …It was an ‘Accident’, They didn’t ‘Authorize’ Anything,…But honestly,…It was Bush’s Fault,…!!!

  13. …Sometimes it’s hard to tell if some of these Responses are from Ignorant Trolls or Potential Comedians,…!!

  14. Uh, Col. West, when is someone going to investigate the relationship between Barack Obama and his half-brother Malik Obama who has been involved with several jihadist organizations. Oh yes, and whose Barack Obama Foundation got its tax exempt status quickly approved by the IRS while those of Tea Party, Constitutionalist, and other conservative organizations were held up. Any fair reading I can make of the Constitution’s definition of treason would say that helping jihadists who are sworn to make war on the U.S. constitutes treason. I think you would agree.

  15. Allen B West why dont you put this infront of the proper authorities since we have NO CLUE how to bring up treason charges.

  16. You have to understand that liberals want to be LOVED by everyone.It validates their existence.Although life without Liberals would be THEIR Utopia!

  17. I would give this information to Trey Gowdy, he is the only one that would get to the bottom of Obama and his treasonous acts. Then we will send them all to meet their maker and receive their 72 virgins.

  18. This garbage will continue until we elect an American President. This fraud in the People’s House has set our country back 50 years and his minions are continuing to destroy us…….

  19. “when does it become treasonous, this aiding and abetting the enemy?”

    It has BEEN treasonous. It’s just that no one has the balls or the inclination to do anything about it.

  20. America has never produced as great an evil as what now lurks in the halls of the White House.
    To bind with Islam is to shred the Constitution and end the United States by destroying it’s Christian heritage and it’s freedom.
    Obama has continually shown us, and the world he is a murderous reprobate bent on making that happen.

  21. Allen, Are we going to remain “paralyzed” in the face of the Muslim incursions into our national life? I was thinking “treason” since
    Obama tried to blame Benghazi on a video that probably is a pretty good picture of Islam,if it even does really exist. That Christian in jail for it needs to be released now!
