U.S. State Dept. recruits workers during Jihadist conference
By Jim Kouri

The Obama administration appears to have a serious misinterpretation of the diplomatic concept known as "outreach" when it comes to the Muslim world. This brand of outreach entails recruiting Muslims into the U.S. Foreign Service, according to comments released on Wednesday by a top public-interest group that investigates and exposes government and political corruption, as well as government action taken that jeopardizes homeland security.

A part of Obama's continuous Muslim outreach effort includes a variety of controversial moves, including the rewriting of the curriculum for training federal law enforcement officials in anti-terrorism by eliminating all references to Islamic terrorism or that portray Muslims negatively, according to Judicial Watch analysts in Washington, D.C., on Thursday.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton even signed a special order to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties banned them from entering the U.S., claim officials at JW.

During the course of a Judicial Watch investigation into the U.S. State Department's activities with extremist Muslim groups, they discovered a secretive State Department campaign to add Muslims to its ranks. Investigators believe the new recruits will be deployed around the globe to help the agency fulfill its mission of promoting the country's "international relations."

The campaign is slated to be headed by Mark Ward, the Deputy Special Coordinator in the State Department's Office of Middle East Transition.

Ward held a 90-minute seminar at a recent convention sponsored by two groups – Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) – both with known ties to radical Islam.

Also, both non-profits are allegedly associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is known as the parent organization of Hamas and al-Qaeda. In fact, the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports that MAS was founded as the U.S. chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood which strives to indoctrinate the world with Islamic Sharia law.

"Yet there was a U.S. State Department official, side by side at a radical Islamic powwow in Chicago with a number of speakers who advocate violent jihad," stated JW.

Among them was Kifah Mustapha, a fundraiser at terrorist organization (Holy Land Foundation) convicted of funneling millions to Hamas and Jamal Badawi, a MAS founder who praised the jihad of Gaza terrorists during a speech titled "Understanding Jihad and Martyrdom."

The conference that Ward conducted focused on career opportunities for Muslim youth. Here is how the event was billed:

"Besides being a citizenship duty, there are benefits that Muslims can add to the American Muslim community and the global Muslim world by joining the U.S. Foreign Services. This session will shed light on the different career opportunities for Muslim youth in the U.S. Foreign Services Department. It will also clear any concerns that many people have feared about pursuing this career."

Joining Ward at the podium during the recruitment seminar were Ayman Hammous and Oussama Jammal. Hammous is the Executive Director of the New York chapter of MAS and Jammal is the president of the Mosque Foundation, a conservative mosque in Bridgeview, Illinois that gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Holy Land Foundation and other Islamic charities accused of financing terrorism.
