Classic: SEIU Leader, Obama Linked "Charity" Investigated for Terror Support

An update on this story: Search Warrants Served on Anti War Activists Suspected of ... Material Support for Terrorism.

The group in question has allegedly met with several terrorist organizations including Hezbollah, Hamas, PFLP and FARC.

At the center of the ring of "peace activists" is a guy by the name of Hatem Abudayyeh, a left wing activist and Executive Director of the Arab American Action Network. I'm getting tons of emails about this, but Jim Hoft has a good summary of the link between the "charity" run by Abudayyeh suspected of supporting terror, and President Obama:

The Arab American Action Network was founded by former PLO operative and close Obama family friend Rashid Khalidi. Obama was a director of the Woods Fund from 1994 through 2001, when the board approved a $40,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network.

In 2003 Barack Obama was an honored guest at a dinner sponsored by the AAAN for former PLO-operative Rashid Khalidi.

Ah, so that's what he meant by "community activist"!

A number of Abudayyeh's friends and associates are also under investigation.

Including a leader in the SEIU

Over the weekend the FBI announced that it was investigating Joseph Iosbaker for possible connections to overseas terror groups. Iosbaker and his wife Stephanie Weiner, both anti-war activists, are suspected of activities concerning the material support of terrorism. ....

According to the SEIU Local 73 website, Iosbaker is listed as the Local 73 Chief Steward. Iosbaker was also quite active earlier in the year protesting the closing of the Republic Windows & Doors factory that made the national news. Iosbaker was then listed as an executive board member of the SEIU.

Peace activists supporting terror? That's unpossible!
