Islamic Radical Tours U.S. Thanks To Clinton Order

APRIL 08, 2010


The radical Islamic “scholar” whose terrorist ties banned him from the U.S. for six years is visiting four American cities this week, just months after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a special order to allow his reentry.

Tariq Ramadan, an extremist Muslim who supports Islamic terrorism, arrived in New York this week for a U.S. tour that includes New Jersey, Chicago, Detroit and Washington. The prominent European Muslim scholar openly supports Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, has worked for Iran and donates money to terrorist causes.

Last year a Dutch university fired Ramadan over his extremism and his work for the Islamic Republic of Iran. The move capped the beloved Muslim professor’s assessment that London subway bombers were justified in acting out against their oppressors because the “British government is helping Iraqi people to be killed.”

A well-known French author who has studied Ramadan extensively says the scholar is undoubtedly an agent of radicalization. It’s in his blood, evidently. Ramadan’s grandfather founded the Muslim Brotherhood, an influential Islamist group that advocates terrorism against Israel and the west and is known as the parent organization of Hamas and Al Qaeda.

In documents obtained by the FBI during the raid of a terrorist front group in Texas, Muslim Brotherhood lists its “strategic goal” in the U.S. as “grand jihad,” by “eliminating and destroying the western civilization from within and sabotaging their miserable house…” Ramadan has faithfully supported the group’s mission—his grandfather’s—of imposing Islamic law in the west.

Yet, in an effort to pursue a better relationship with Muslim communities, the Obama Administration has rolled out the welcome mat for the controversial academic. In late January Clinton exercised her exemption authority as the nation’s chief foreign affairs advisor to allow Ramadan and another banned radical (Adam Habib) to enter the U.S.

The move is part of the president’s mission of creating a new and improved relationship—based on mutual interest and mutual respect—with Muslims around the world. The State Department had for years denied the two scholars visas because they present a national security threat.
