Republican Criticizes Opponent
For Ties To J Street, Occupy Movement

The Republican challenger to Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) attacked the congressman for his ties to the controversial J Street and for his purported links to the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Stephen Labate is campaigning for Israel’s seat in New York’s 2nd district. The race could have national implications. Israel is chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

J Street claims to be pro-Israel, yet it has faced mounting criticism for its policies and advocacy that many argue is harmful to the Jewish state.

Speaking on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio, Labate noted that Steve Israel was an honorary member of the host committee for the J Street Gala Dinner in 2009.

After the news media reported on several politicians involved with the dinner, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand asked to be removed from the host committee list and Sen. Chuck Schumer dropped out of appearing at the event.

Declared Labate: “Steve Israel was the only representative from New York State who was on that list of supporters. So it is significant that even Chuck Schumer and Senator Gillibrand they, you know, they called and said, ‘Hey, look I don’t want to be a part of this.’ But Steve Israel did and he is a part of that organization.

“…In the case of J Street they even question whether or not Israel has a right to exist. So I question how Congressman Israel could even entertain being a part of that organization or Occupy Wall Street.”

Labate continued: “Currently on the Democratic Congressional Committee website, which is Steve Israel’s website, there’s a petition for 100,000 signatures in support of Occupy Wall Street. Occupy Wall Street is by far one of the most anti-Semitic organizations out there.”

Hilary Clinton’s Chief Of Staff
Tied To Egyptian President’s Wife

Saleha Mahmood Abedin, the mother of Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, reportedly served in the women’s division of the Muslim Brotherhood alongside the wife of Egypt’s new president, the Brotherhood’s Mohammed Mursi.

This journalist previously revealed that Abedin represented the Muslim World League, a Muslim charity known to have spawned terror groups, including one declared by the U.S. government to be an official al-Qaeda front.

This journalist also previously reported that Clinton spoke at Abedin’s Saudi women’s college, where she was introduced by Abedin alongside the Islamic activist’s daughter, Huma, who serves as Clinton’s chief of staff. At the speech, Clinton praised Saleha’s “pioneering work.” Huma Abedin is also the mother-in-law of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.).

Now, author Walid Shoebat has brought more information to light, reporting that while Saleha Abedin acted as one of 63 leaders of the Muslim Sisterhood, the de facto female version of the Muslim Brotherhood, she served alongside Najla Ali Mahmoud, the wife of Mohammed Mursi. Both were members of the Sisterhood’s Guidance Bureau.

Obama Aide Boasts Of Leniency
For Crack Cocaine Offenders

President Obama’s top aide, Valerie Jarrett, reportedly boasted to the black community that the administration sharply reduced the penalties for possession of crack cocaine.

Jarrett made the remarks at a meeting of black journalists and columnists this past weekend at the National Association of Black Journalists’ convention in New Orleans. Mainstream media outlets covering the event did not report on her crack cocaine comments.

The Root, a website owned by the Washington Post aimed at the black community, reprinted a blog report by the Maynard Institute’s Richard Prince on Jarrett’s appearance at the convention. Prince reported that at the meeting Jarrett outlined “what she considered the Obama administration’s successes.”

Continued Prince: “Among them funding for historically black colleges and universities; health care reform, which she said will disproportionately help African Americans; and reducing disparities between penalties for possession of crack and for powdered cocaine.”

DeWayne Wickham, a writer for USA Today, reported on the event for the Coshocton Tribune. He wrote Jarrett touted the sentence reduction for crack cocaine disparity as a way to build a broad Obama reelection coalition, including African Americans.

Even though the Washington Post-owned Root website reposted Prince’s blog mentioning Jarrett’s comments, the Post’s own article on the event did not touch on the subject. That article was entitled, “Obama Has ‘Genuine Love for Black Community,’ Senior Adviser Says.”
