Two Muslim advocacy groups closely allied with the Obama administration are aggressively attacking Israel and defending the terror group Hamas as it continues to fire rockets at Israeli civilians.
In 2008, Obama’s Muslim Outreach Adviser, Mazen Asbahi, resigned following reports that he was linked to an Imam with ties to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. Asbahi sat on the board of an investment fund, Allied Assets Advisors Fund, with Jamal Said, an imam from Illinois who has been linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. The government has also investigated Said over fundraising for Hamas.
A coalition of far-left American Muslim groups are waging a coordinated media campaign to smear Zuhdi Jasser, a prominent Muslim interfaith leader with moderate views and a pro-democracy outlook.
