Obama campaign meets with Islamic Radicals

NBC News is reporting the Obama campaign in September had several meetings with “several controversial Muslim activists.”

The meeting included Mahdi Bray, a supporter of Hezbollah and Hamas. “In a 2004 interview, he called the Israeli assassination of a Hamas spiritual leader an ‘unlawful, cowardly and dangerous act of state-sponsored terrorism.’”

Nihad Awad of the Council on American-Islamic Relations attended.

Likewise,

Chicago-based lawyer Mazen Asbahi also attended the meeting. He is the Obama campaign’s former Muslim outreach coordinator, who abruptly resigned in August after the Wall Street Journal and websites that track fundamentalist Islam began questioning Asbahi’s involvement in an Islamic investment fund and various Islamic groups.

And here we were worried about Obama’s ACORN ties.
