Jihadist finance links to Republican

January 15, 2011

Suhail Khan, a former Bush administration official and a current board member of the American Conservative Union, has a history of interactions with groups and individuals who have waged money jihad against the West.  An opinion piece in the New York Post (h/t Jihad Watch) on Jan. 9 by Paul Sperry reveals that:

  • A big league Al Qaeda fundraiser Abdurahman Alamoudi was outed by Sen. Arlen Specter who described Alamoudi as a terrorist supporter in 2001.  A few days later at an American Muslim Council event, Khan said of Alamoudi that he hoped “we can keep working together.”
  • Khan spoke at an Islamic Society of North American (ISNA) convention in 2001.  As a Muslim Brotherhood front group, ISNA has helped raise money for jihad.  Khan says his father Mahboob was one of ISNA’s founders.
  • Khan’s father also founded the Santa Clara Muslim Community Association.  Al Qaeda top dog Ayman al-Zawahiri visited that mosque while raising funds in the U.S. in the 1990s.

At ISNA’s conference in 1999, Khan said, “The early Muslims loved death, dying for the sake of almighty Allah, more than the oppressors loved life.  This must be the case when we are fighting.”

Suhail Khan is also an outspoken advocate of the Ground Zero Mosque.  His associations should render any and all of his lobbying efforts to “fellow” conservatives null and void.  Get him off of Washington, D.C.’s cocktail party circuit immediately.
