The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) held its “Islam and Muslims in America” conference last week in Chicago where a controversial White House appointee rubbed elbows with Muslim Brotherhood front organizations-including unindicted co-conspirators from the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the largest terrorist funding trial in U.S. history, the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) trial.
The OIC host entity is comprised of the kings and heads of state of all Islamic countries (the OIC numbers its membership at 57 states by including the non-existent state of Palestine).
According to the “about us” section of the organization’s website, the OIC speaks for the Muslim world and the ummah, which is the worldwide body of Muslim believers.
The website says: “The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is the second largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations which has membership of 57 states spread over four continents. The Organization is the collective voice of the Muslim world and ensuring to safeguard and protect the interests of the Muslim world in the spirit of promoting international peace and harmony among various people of the world…
“The Organization is composed of the following main bodies: The Islamic Summit, composed of Kings and Heads of State and Government of Member States, is the supreme authority of the Organization. It convenes once every three years to deliberate, take policy decisions and provide guidance on all issues pertaining to the realization of the objectives and consider other issues of concern to the Member States and the Ummah.”
The OIC’s claim to speak for “the collective voice of the Muslim world” carries great weight considering its membership. The OIC conference in Chicago-with the participation of the White House-is working with Muslim Brotherhood front groups to promote Sharia law and its governance in America through the ummah (body of religious believers).
Yet the OIC is not an Islamic religious organization but a political entity exercising political power and territorial claims through all of its members as well as the ummah.
The White House representative at the OIC conference, Dalia Mogahed, is a big supporter of Sharia law. From the London Telegraph:
“Miss Mogahed, appointed to the President’s Council on Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships, said the Western view of Sharia was ‘oversimplified’ and the majority of women around the world associate it with ‘gender justice.’
“The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party.
“The group believes in the non-violent destruction of Western democracy and the creation of an Islamic state under Sharia Law across the world.
“Miss Mogahed appeared alongside Hizb ut Tahrir’s national women’s officer, Nazreen Nawaz.
“During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular ‘man-made law’ and the West’s ‘lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism.’
“They called for Sharia Law to be ‘the source of legislation and said that women should not be ‘permitted to hold a position of leadership in government.'”
Mogahed participated in a panel at the conference with Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
Wahhaj, imam of the Masjid Al-Taqwa mosque in Brooklyn, N.Y., also sits on the board of directors of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial.
A federal judge in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia has denied a motion to dismiss complaints by five former clients of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
CAIR is a Muslim organization previously named as a Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group by the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office in the federal criminal trial and conviction of a terrorist funding cell.

The Democratic National Committee is promoting an upcoming rally for President Obama by sending out a blog that touts the musical act preceding him as “f—ing awesome.”
A DNC spokesman blasted out an e-mail alert Monday that included a post from the Philadelphia City Paper’s website. The paper reported that ‘The Roots’ would be performing at Obama’s Oct. 10 rally in Philadelphia.
A liberal protester at the ‘One Nation Working Together’ march physically assaulted a Human Events reporter who was videotaping Rep. Charlie Rangel (D.-N.Y) at the event.
The reporter, Emily Miller, was first hit from behind while she was taping Rangel as he glad-handed supporters in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Miss Miller is heard on the video saying, “Please don’t hit me.”
Not only were thousands of supporters given free rides to the ‘One Nation’ rally, leftist teachers at High Schools for Math, Science and Engineering were giving students class credits to attend.
High School kids are forced to attend the one Nation rally in order to graduate. Student Service Learning hours are required by many state governments to graduate High School, so kids must attend these rallies.
Nearly $69 million in welfare money meant to help California’s neediest families was spent or withdrawn at locations such as Hawaii, Las Vegas casinos and cruise ships from Miami.
The finding is based on data compiled since 2007 by the CA. Department of Social Services. It showed that the biggest chunk of out-of-state money – $11.8M – was spent at casinos or withdrawn from ATMs in Las Vegas.
California Democrat Rep. Jane Harman’s family business is laying off American workers – including engineering employees in California – and shifting jobs overseas.

Cash-squeezed police forces are selling off ‘secondhand’ panties and bras in a bid to boost their coffers. Just weeks before forces expect to be hit by £2.4bn budget cuts, many have taken to punting stolen and lost items.
They are sold on the Bumblebee police auction site if the rightful owners cannot be found within three months, reports the Daily Telegraph.
Raymond Stanley Roberts, 25, was jailed Wednesday after he was allegedly found with cocaine in his anus that he claimed was “not his”.
