Obama’s Islamic Terrorist Fundraiser

The chairman of an Islamic “charity” shut down by the U.S. government for funding Middle Eastern terrorists has dedicated himself to raising money for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

With his Ohio-based terrorist funding operation closed, Hatem El-Hady has committed to raising substantial funds for the Illinois senator, according to an in-depth article in an investigative news publication that regularly breaks important stories ignored by the mainstream media.

El-Hady knows all about raising big bucks because he did it as chairman of the Toledo-based Islamic “charity” called Kindhearts. The terrorist front group was shut down by the U.S. Treasury Department in 2006 and had all its assets frozen because it financed the Middle Eastern extremist group Hamas.

A top terrorism and financial intelligence official at the Treasury Department said Kindhearts attempted to mask its support for terrorism behind the façade of charitable giving, like several other groups such as the Holy Land Foundation and Global Relief Foundation.

El-Hady’s new mission is to move Obama into the White House. He even had his own dedicated page on Obama’s official website, detailing his fundraising on behalf of the Illinois senator. El-Hady’s web page vanished from the Obama campaign site after the story broke this week, however. So did Michelle Obama’s name from the friend list of El-Hady’s web page.

Just last week Obama was forced to address his close ties to a domestic terrorist—William Ayers— who planted bombs in the U.S. Capitol, Pentagon and other government buildings. Obama and Ayers, a Vietnam-era radical and one-time fugitive, have been close for decades and Ayers has hosted fundraisers for the senator and donated money to his campaigns.

This gives Obama the official support of domestic, Middle Eastern and Latin American Marxist terrorists (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia—or its Spanish acronym FARC). Democrats must be proud.
