Good Grief. Radical Obama Pal, Who Was Awarded $457,000 in Taxpayer Funds & Has Visited White House, Is Being Investigated For Ties to Terrorism

It’s not just Bill Ayers…

In October 2010 FBI agents raided the homes of far left activists in Chicago and Minneapolis who were linked to the Marxist FARC terrorists and Islamic radicals as part of a terrorism investigation.

The home of radical Hatem Abudayyeh, a friend of Barack Obama, was raided in the terror sweep.

Radical Hatem Abudayyeh protested against Israel in Chicago in January 2009. (Daylife)

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.

The Obama Administration invited Abudayyeh to the White House last year.

Stanley Kurtz at The Corner reported this week that the FBI is still investigating this radical Obama associate:

Today’s Washington Post features a story by Peter Wallsten (the reporter who obtained the Obama-Khalidi video tape) noting that, under the direction of U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, the FBI is investigating prominent peace activists and labor organizers for possible ties to terrorism. According to Wallsten, some of the investigation’s targets include “Chicagoans who crossed paths with Obama when he was a young state senator.” This includes, for example, according to Wallsten, Hatem Abudayyeh, executive director of the Arab American Action Network, founded by Rashid Khalidi. (I tell the story of Obama’s ties to AAAN here.) According to the search warrants, investigators are tracking possible “material support” for “Columbian and Palestinian groups designated by the U.S. government as terrorists.” Wallsten suggests that the probe might be awkward for Obama, given his need for support from some of the leftist and labor groups involved.

This is just an investigation, of course, and all so-called targets should be presumed innocent. Also, the activists themselves are crying foul, with the help of close Obama ally, Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL). It’s important to protect the right of political dissent. At the same time, support for terrorism is a legitimate target of investigation.

    “This is just an investigation, of course, and all so-called targets should be presumed innocent.”

    This should shock noone. We know who Obama is. Holder pardoned terrorists, and they confirmed him anyway. We are known by the company we keep. Obama has been treated by the old media, by a complicit Congress, The Supreme Court as though he is legitimate when he’s not. He’s one of them. He presented a fake bc a couple of weeks ago, noone calls him on it. In their minds, the people in the country are too stupid to know. He could start killing Americans and all we’d hear out of their mouths is, “This is Bad Policy.” Obama is above the law, Obama can commit treason, loot the treasury, and be an accessory to murder in Operation Gunrunner, and he calls it “Policy” and it’s suddenly not a crime.

    With this bunch who are letting him do it, why should we expect any different. Our country has been raped, and they keep coming back for more. I should say it’s been gang raped by Soetoro and his gang, Congress, The Supreme Court, and the old media. What a bunch. They’re all morally bankrupt. I hope God sees fit to seek vengeance on all of them.

  • TomH

    Hatem Abudayyeh…. Wow, say this name out load.

  • Larkin

    I think that God or karma or whatever will indeed seek vengeance, and the chickens will come home to roost.

    Unfortunately, the 48% of us that did not vote for this travesty will be in the path of that oncoming vengeance. Already are.

    “This is just an investigation, of course, and all so-called targets should be presumed innocent”

    This is a perfect example of how they do this with language. They are trying to give the impression that this isn’t what it is. “It might be awkward for Obama?” I guess it was awkward for Ted Bundy and Van der Sloot when they were finally arrested too. I’m sick of having my God given ability to reason insulted by these complicit people in the Government and old media. I know who the hell Soetoro is, and yes that’s his legal name. He’s been signing bills passed through this criminal conspiracy known as Congress, and signing by a name that isn’t even his legal name. HE IS ONE OF THESE PEOPLE. THEY CAN’T COME TO GRIPS WITH IT. THEY CAN’T COME TO GRIPS WITH THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE KISSED THE FEET OF A FRONT MAN FOR TERRORISM FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS. THE WEATHERMEN AND MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD. THEY CAN ALL GO TO HELL FOR WHAT THEY’RE ALLOWING HERE.

    The name is Hate-em? How perfect.

  • Granny

    Holder runs the FBI so we can assume that they are not so much “investigating” terrorists with ties to IWonWTF as doing the best to cover things up.

  • L.E. Liesner

    Isn’t it amazing that under this great government we have, the taxpayer is funding it’s own demise. Under normal circumstances this would be considered crazy, but under our dumbed down society it’s the sane thing to do to be politically correct. I wonder if this President has just one friend or acquaintance that isn’t an enemy to this country, makes you wonder what did the “useful idiots” elect.

  • chicago

    no surprise here. who else would Obama support but the most radical of muslims and liberals. this is another ready-made ad campaign for the GOP – bundle all of Obama’s radical pals and put ’em in a campaign ad video.

  • aprilnovember811

    I’m sending this to the Prime Minister of Israel today. I’m sure their intelligence can find out just who Obama really is. They can do the job ours didn’t. It should reach Israel in about two minutes.

  • Old Fan

    What a shock. More insanity provided by the disastrous Democratic Party.

    Smart Power is a real joke. What a waste of taxpayer funds, which enables the very worst.

    It is simply sickening.

    Meanwhile, the main stream media is hot on the trail of Sarah Palin and her 25k emails.

  • Redwine

    Doesn’t surprise me. Barack Hussein is neck deep with Red-Green Alliance terrorists.

  • Freddy

    This OLD story really shows how far Obama has come. Funding small time terrorists was something Obama thought a good idea as a community organizer. Now a more Presidential Obama threatens Israel directly with the full force of the US military behind him!

  • Betsy Ross

    Too bad Sarah Palin isn’t involved in this story in some way.
    That would really get the press to break this story wide open.

  • Spike

    Well is’nt a obama a Terrorist… I mean is is a muslim and he does hate the United States

  • Stuart

    I am shocked! shocked!
    This is not the Hatem Abudayya that I knew for 20 years.

  • Sunnyr

    So nice to know who Comrade Obozo pal’d around with before he was elected to our nations highest office. Thanks to the LSM for their excellent vetting process. end of sarcasm.

    This does not surprise me in any way. How much more do we need to know about this subversive POS? Is it 2012 yet?

    Never again!!!

  • Lela

    Obama’s Head Scars, I looked at the site you posted and was not shocked by the bloody ritual (or whatever) of head cutting. After all, what can one expect from savages still living in the seventh century?
    Now, if anyone thinks this is terrifying to the little boys, just think how terrifying, painful, and emotionally scarring the practice of clitorectomies must be to girls. I don’t know what sect this practice occurs in, but all I need to know is that they are muslims.

  • eaglewingz08

    With a name like HATEm, just like with Weiner, you knew that this had to happen. I wonder if HATEm, was also at the Khalidi dinner with Obama, which video is being hushed up, if it hasn’t already been destroyed, by the LA Times?

    young muslim men not only whip themselves but cut their scalps with swords.
