“As Gaza turns red, so could crucial battleground states”
There’s been quite the pressure campaign until now from Islamic organizations on the Biden administration.
But this time it comes from a Muslim Dem group issuing an official “ultimatum” threatening a Republican victory. And I do mean “ultimatum.” This is the title: “2023 Ceasefire Ultimatum”.
The National Muslim Democratic Council, a nationwide group of Democratic leaders and activists, threatened President Joe Biden that if he does not force Israel to reach a ceasefire with Hamas, a U.S. State Department-designated foreign terrorist organization, by 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday, they will work to mobilize against him in the 2024 presidential election.
“It has become evident that our voices are being ignored, but our votes will not be. Simply put, as Gaza turns red, so could crucial battleground states,” the council said in a letter Monday to the White House and Democratic Party.
“We will mobilize increased voter turnout to make our voices heard,” the council also wrote. It added that Michigan, a swing state with a large Muslim population that went for former President Donald Trump in 2016, went for Biden by 2.6% in 2020.
The council’s letter only refers to Israel one time, stating: “We pledge to mobilize Muslim, Arab, and allied voters to withhold endorsement, support, or votes for any candidate who did not advocate for a ceasefire and endorse the Israeli offensive against the Palestinian people.”
The National Muslim Democratic Council, like other Dem identity groups, is supposed to exist to rally support among Muslims for the Democrats. Instead, the NMDC is making it clear that its mission is the exact opposite of that, which should no come surprise to anyone who knows its history or what Islamists do: a category that excludes the Dems.
Of course, there’s no such thing as a ceasefire with Hamas. The recent Hamas atrocities occurred by taking advantage of a ceasefire.
But that’s by design.
Congressmen Keith Ellison and Andre Carson were the National Muslim Democratic Council’s founding honorary co-chairs.
And it gets a good deal worse from there.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Democratic Party fundraiser with leaders of Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood front groups in May of 2012.
The invitation-only fundraiser was sponsored by Reps. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.; Andre Carson, D-Ind.; and Steve Israel, D-N.Y., chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and took place on the evening of May 16, 2012, at the W Hotel in Washington D.C.
Also in attendance was Jamal Barzinji, a founding father of the Muslim Brotherhood in America and co-founder of the Muslim Student Association (MSA), an incubator for Islamic radicalism in North America.
Barzinji was named in a federal affidavit as being closely associated with Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas. His name appears in a global phone book of Muslim Brotherhood members recovered by Italian and Swiss authorities in Nov. 2001 from the home of Al-Taqwa Bank of Lugano founder Youssef Nada, one of the leaders of the international Muslim Brotherhood.
Following the speeches, a prominent attorney, Mazen Asbahi publicly rose to announce the creation of a new organization called the National Muslim Democratic Council (NMDC). Asbahi was Barack Obama’s 2008 Muslim outreach director but was forced to step down when his prior association with a radical Muslim cleric, Jamal Said, became public. Said was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial.
So you can see why the NMDC might be willing to risk a major break with the party it’s sucking blood from to protect the Jihadists in Gaza.
