Muslims in the Whitehouse? "Yes We Can"

Hey AIPAC, bet this really pisses you off eh?

Obama gets list of top Muslim Americans

CHICAGO — In a bid to get more Muslim Americans working in the Obama administration, a book with resumes of 45 of the nation's most qualified — Ivy League grads, Fortune 500 executives and public servants, all carefully vetted — has been submitted to the White House.

The effort, driven by community leaders and others, including U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was bumped up two weeks because White House officials heard about the venture, said J. Saleh Williams, program coordinator for the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association, who sifted through more than 300 names.

"It was mostly under the radar," Williams said. "We thought it would put (the president) in a precarious position. We didn't know how closely he wanted to appear to be working with the Muslim American community."

I have to take this opt to say ty for all your good work in these causes. Until I stumbled across this site, I had no idea the land of my ancestors was so involved in Palestine and politics. Of course the similarities are immediately obvious to anyone who knows a little of the Irish struggles against the same imperialistic forces the Palestinians face. When I found this site and saw what leaders you are in the boycott, for the first time I was consciously proud of my Irishness. Up until then it had just been.. part of me, an 11th Generation Canadian. I tended to identify with the French side but now... I am here almost every day reading. And seeing your writings in some of the sites I get daily emails from.

Would you please check out my work and perhaps consider adding me to your list of Blogs? It is very difficult to "break in" although I have had some wonderful cheers from folks. I write my own stuff and also I take other pieces I find interesting and add images, links and videos... as well as my own $.02 worth. Of course always credit where credit is due.

This article, btw, is very cheering. And, I happen to be posting up a piece on how Obama is being urged to start to accept Hamas, along with the rest of the world. We WILL prevail!

AIPAC got hit hard when it screwed with Charles Freeman. I have done about 4 pieces on this and will do more I expect. They were forced out of the dark and found scuttling about like centipedes in the sunshine. This is a BIG one for America if people learn more about it. BECAUSE one reason AIPAC did this is, because Freeman is an independent thinker and he speaks sense about Israel. AND he knows that Iran has not nuke capability no matter how much Isreal pushes it. Enough of these things and AIPAC will be reduced in power just a weeeeeee bit!

LOL sooo ty again for this posting ... and ... ty ty

Barbara, Many thanks for that:) It is good to look at all the parts of your ethnicity including the Irish bits:) Many Irish when forced to leave Ireland ended up going to Canada after the US increased the amount to enter America. There is nothing wrong at all with people being proud of their ethnicity. Unfortunately Zionists tend to take that to the extreme and think they are better than everyone else.

They tend to use the word "holocaust" as their own, when in fact, the Irish population was halved three times in history, so in effect we had three holocausts. But we don't go round expecting special treatment worldwide, or use that to beat over the heads of people or use it to call for wiping out our neighbours.

Israel needs to stop using illogical fear tactics to carry out war and hatred. Then perhaps they can live in peace, if they really want peace.

cheers
