Pipes: Obama's Ties To Radical Islamists

Daniel Pipes hits one out of the ballpark with "Obama's unsavory ties" this week. MUST READ stuff: One watches with dismay as Democratic candidate Barack Obama manages to hide the truth on his longstanding, if indirect ties to two institutions: the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), listed by the US government in 2007 as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding trial; and the Nation of Islam (NoI), condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for its "consistent record of racism and anti-Semitism." Full Column at Jerusalem Post... The only thing that Pipes missed was the Obama connection to the recent Chicago story of the sharia-compliant Sunrise Equities scandal, in which approximately 150 mostly Muslim investors lost a total of $80 million. Sunrise was a Muslim owned and operated company. It's CEO and other officers vanished - with the money - in mid-August. SEE "Obama's Connections to Sunrise Equities, Part Two."
