On September 11, 2001, Grover Norquist met in his office with a group of terrorists – “jihadis” if you prefer – to determine how to mend relations between Muslim leaders and American government officials, while the smoke was still rising after the attacks in which 3,000 of our citizens where murdered.
That alone should have put Mr. Norquist outside of the circle of trust among discerning and patriotic American leaders in the conservative movement, but it did not.
Mr. Norquist creating the Islamic Free Market Institute with money from Al Qaeda financier Abdurahman Alamoudi should be a red flag to rational thinking people in “conservative” circles, and should ostracize Mr. Norquist from any participation among patriots in matters of import – nope.
Grover Norquist – the founder of Americans for Tax Reform – continues to move within conservative circles with ease. and has support from some prominent Republicans. Not only are many leaders in the American conservative movement failing to raise serious questions about Norquist’s defense of easily identifiable terrorists, they defend him and call those who lay facts on the table “bigots” or other similarly absurd names.
Now, he is again up for election as one of the members of the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association (NRA). Will the NRA allow a man who promotes and defends terrorists to be re-elected to their Board?
In February 2014, a group of prominent Americans prepared a report entitled “The Islamists and their Enablers Assault on the Right – The Case Against Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan.” The report contains facts surrounding Mr. Norquist’s history with and support for terrorists. Among those who signed the report were: the Honorable Michael B. Mukasey, 81st Attorney General of the United States; and the Honorable R. James Woolsey, former Director of Central Intelligence.
The facts detailed in this report include: Grover Norquist provided access to the White House for a number of terrorists during the Bush administration; Norquist is the registered agent for the Islamic Free Market Institute in Washington, D.C. which received money directly from terrorist/jihadi organizations including convicted Al Qaeda financier Abdurahman Alamoudi and the SAFA Trust; Alamoudi’s deputy at the American Muslim Council (AMC), Khalid Saffuri, was made the Director of the Islamic Institute with Norquist’s approval; Norquist promotes, works closely with, and defends a Muslim Brother/Jihadi named Suhail Khan, whose father, Mahboob Khan, was one of the most prominent Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the world prior to his death; and Suhail Khan served under two successive Secretaries of Transportation with a security clearance, and continues to be promoted and given access to positions of trust inside conservative circles by Grover Norquist.
For years, Mr. Norquist’s only defense has been to say that he is being wrongly accused because of personal vendettas and smears. Yet, a former U.S. Attorney General and CIA Director put their name on a report that factually lays out the case that Grover Norquist is an agent of hostile organizations and individuals operating inside the United States.
While President Obama releases terrorist leaders of Al Qaeda and the Taliban, and Attorney General Holder refuses to prosecute terrorist organizations in America despite overwhelming evidence (ISNA, NAIT, CAIR, MSA, et al), it is not likely Grover Norquist will be indicted for espionage, providing material support to terrorists, nor aiding and abetting terrorist organizations (Al Qaeada & Hamas). However, professionals inside the U.S. government in the FBI, Department of Justice, and other arms of the government have the evidence they need to open an investigation on him, and have had that information for a number of years now. Their failure to prosecute – or even investigate – Mr. Norquist does not in any way diminish the evidence on the table against him.
For years, the National Rifle Association has reminded Americans their right to keep and bear arms long pre-dates the founding of our great Republic. For several years now they have had Grover Norquist on their Board.
This article is being written as a clarion call for all NRA members to contact the NRA and let them know that a terrorist supporter like Grover Norquist should not be represented on the NRA board, and Americans need to be willing to walk away from the NRA if it fails to take the appropriate action in this matter.
