Gov. Quinn Appoints Muslim Linked to Terror Groups to State Advisory Council

-By Warner Todd Huston

Recently Illinois Governor Pat Quinn announced the formation of the Illinois Muslim American Advisory Council, a group that will somehow “ensure” that Muslim American concerns are taken into account in state government. Among those appointed by the Governor to this board is ISNA Secretary-General Safaa Zarzour, a man who has been linked to organizations that fund Islamist terrorism.

Zarzour is known as a supporter and member of the Muslim Brotherhood, a group well known for pushing extremist Islamism and for funding terror throughout the world.

As a site that tracks the murderous efforts of the Muslim Brotherhood notes, Zarzour was an official in a Chicago-area Mosque that donated thousands to several terror groups.

As much as $1 million a year was raised from mosque members which was then sent to overseas Muslim charities. The mosque donated money to three Islamic charities that have since been identified as involved in financing terrorism—the Holy Land Foundation, Benevolence International, and the Global Relief Foundation. One of the mosque’s eight-member executive committee was Muhammad Salah, a Muslim Brotherhood member who was arrested in Israel in 1993 and has since been identified as a Hamas military commander.

All this brings into question Quinn’s appointment. Why has our governor appointed a terror supporter to a state board of advisors?

    What is wrong with these idiots? You don’t want muslims in our government. And why must the muslims have someone in there who is muslim to speak for them? Who ever it is, even if non-muslim should be looking out for them. This is part of the take over of our government by muslims and the idiots like this governor is just giving it to them. All this occupy crap is organized by the muslims to do in America what is happening in Syria and Egypt..Stop this madness. No muslims in our government…Peace to all non-muslims who hate this crap.

    -” To ensure that Muslim American concerns are taken into account in state gov’t”?- I thought that all Americans were taken into account in state gov’t. Why should they have special interest? Something is very off here but since it is coming from Illinois it does make sense.
