Islamic extremist Suhail Khan to be featured at CPAC 2011

Frank Gaffney at Big Peace reports today on the appearance of Islamic extremist Suhail Khan at CPAC 2011 next month. Note that Khan is on the board of the American Conservative Union (ACU), which operates CPAC and is a protege of GOP activist Grover Norquist, who as Gaffney notes co-founded the Islamic Institute with top Al-Qaeda fundraiser Abdurahman Alamoudi.

Gaffney says "It's a Time to Choose for the Conservative Movement":

Then, this evening, WND raised troubling questions about the role being played by two ACU board members, Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform and Suhail Khan of the so-called Conservative Inclusion Coalition, in connection with their efforts to promote at CPAC issues and individuals associated with the Muslim Brotherhood (MB).

I was among those quoted in the latest article about Messrs. Norquist and Khan’s troubling involvement for over a decade in causes profoundly at odds with U.S. security and national interests. In particular, Grover Norquist helped found and operate a Muslim organization with seed money and staffing from the man who was, at the time, the preeminent MB/al Qaeda financier. He has been a champion of:

* closing Guantanamo Bay and transferring its prisoners to a prison in Illinois;
* bringing Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to trial in New York City;
* maintaining open borders and providing amnesty for illegal aliens;
* repealing the Patriot Act;
* repealing the ban on homosexuals in the armed forces;
* and, most recently, cutting defense spending.

Norquist and Khan’s problematic roles and associations are discussed in Shariah: The Threat to America. It is devoutly to be hoped that they, among many other aspects of the Muslim Brotherhood’s determined bid to insinuate shariah into the United States, will also receive close scrutiny in the course of the potentially momentous hearings into “radical Islam” that incoming House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Pete King has pledged to convene in the weeks ahead.

Either way, the information laid out by World Net Daily about serious problems within the conservative movement can no longer be ignored. Neither can those responsible for introducing those problems safely or responsibly continue to be tolerated, let alone protected, by leaders of the movement.
