What Was FBI-Raided Radical Abudayyeh Doing at Obama White House & Why Was He Awarded $457,000 in Taxpayer Money?

Last Friday FBI agents raided the homes of far left activists in Chicago and Minneapolis who are linked to the Marxist FARC terrorists and Islamic radicals as part of a terrorism investigation.

The home of radical Hatem Abudayyeh in Chicago was raided in the terror sweep.

Hatem Abudayyeh is the executive director of the Arab American Action Network (AAAN). Hatem Abudayyeh has been with the Arab American Action Network (AAAN) since 1999, and was appointed Executive Director in 2003. The Arab American Action Network was founded by former PLO operative and close Obama family friend Rashid Khalidi. Obama was a director of the Woods Fund from 1994 through 2001, when the board approved a $40,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network.

In 2003 Barack Obama was an honored guest at a dinner sponsored by the AAAN for former PLO-operative Rashid Khalidi. During the dinner a video was taken that shows Barack Obama celebrating with members of this Palestinian group who are openly hostile towards Israel. Barack Obama even gave a toast to a Rashid Khalidi at this going away party. The LA Times will not release the video from this Jew-bashing dinner.

Not only was Hatem Abudayyeh’s radical organization given $40,000 by Barack Obama and the Woods Fund but his organization also collected nearly half a million in taxpayer money.

ABC Local reported:

When FBI agents raided the Chicago home of Hatem Abudayyeh last Friday, they took his laptop computer and paper records, anything with the word “Palestine” on it, according to the man’s attorney.

Federal search warrants indicate that authorities are looking for connections between terrorist organizations in the Middle East and South America and certain anti-war leaders and organizations in the U.S.

As executive director of the Arab American Action Network in Chicago, Mr. Abudayyeh is a well-known advocate for immigrant rights. When federal officers raided his North Side home last week, along with residences in Minneapolis, they were looking for funding links between Abudayyeh and the radical Islamic group Hamas that took power in the Gaza Strip three years ago.

Even as Abudayyeh is under investigation by a federal grand jury, city of Chicago records obtained by the ABC7 I-Team show that his Arab American Action Network has received thousands of dollars in city grants: as much as $457,000 since 1998. According to city officials, the money was intended for an after-school program for high-risk students who struggle with English.

So how did that happen?
And would someone in the Obama Administration explain what Abudayyeh was doing in the White House this year?

Hat Tip Steve H.

This deserves an explanation.

Debbie Schlussel has much more on this radical here and here.

    So, how many times have Christian leaders visited the Obummer White House? Also, any evidence that Obummer and his foundations have ever given money to Christian organizations? (Don’t count Rev. Wright…)

    Why has Obama given OUR MONEY TO TERRORISTS?

    Because Obama is pro-terrorist.

    Jim Hoft: See the Daily Caller today about Russ Carnahan’s brother receiving $107 million from Obama. I’m sure you are on top of this but it’s the first I’ve heard of it.

  • plaidunicorn

    I’m looking forward to hearing Robert Gibbs explain that is wasn’t THAT Hatem Abudayyeh.

  • Illinois Patriot

    Plaidunicorn: do you think Robert Gibbs will even be asked? If he is cornered, I’m sure the answer will be high on The Gibbs “Greatest Hits List” of babbling nonanswers…….sigh……

    Oh this isn’t the only questionable visitor that TheWon has hosted. Remember King whatever his name is, the NOI dude with the uniform and the police baton threatening voters in Philly? After his case was dismissed he was welcomed as a visitor to the White House.

    What “IS” the FBI up to anyway??
    Sheikh Kifah Mustapha (third from left) touring the National Counterterrorism Center (Photo: FBI) ((SEE PIC))

    “A known Hamas operative and unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history – Kifah Mustapha – was recently escorted into the top-secret National Counterterrorism Center and other secure government facilities, including the FBI’s training center at Quantico, during a six-week “Citizen’s Academy” hosted by the FBI as part of its “outreach” to the Muslim Community. The group was accompanied by reporter Ben Bradley of WLS-Chicago (ABC), who filed a report on the trip to Washington D.C. on Sunday, who observed:

    Sheik Kifah Mustapha, who runs the Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview, asked some of the most pointed questions during the six week FBI Citizens’ Academy and trip to Washington. He pushed agents to fully explain everything from the bureau’s use of deadly force policy to racial and ethnic profiling. “I saw a very interesting side of what the FBI does and I wanted to know more,” Sheik Mustapha explained after returning from D.C. He hopes the FBI’s outreach runs deeper than positive public relations.

    Yes, I bet he wanted to know everything about the FBI’s policies…..

    Curiously, Bradley’s report on the Citizen’s Academy fails to make note Mustapha’s extensive terrorist ties and support for Hamas, including his former employment with the Holy Land Foundation, which was listed as a specially designated terrorist group by the U.S. government in December 2001, and whose executives were convicted of terrorism support in 2008 and sentenced to lengthy prison terms. Mustapha was personally named unindicted co-conspirator (#31) in the case and employment records submitted by federal prosecutors during the trial showed that he received more than $154,000 for his work for the Holy Land Foundation between 1996 and 2000. …..””
    This is NOT being reported @ all.

    The FBI raid video shows that the Islamists are already protesting at the FBI headquarters in Chicago. They probably know the names of every FBI agent and where they live. The news caster notes the double handed hypocrisy of these islamist bullies shaking the government down for money on one hand while the other hand intimidates Government from asking any hard questions on how the money is spent. ..and everyone in Government knows the domestic islamic terrorists have the President working hard on their side.
