Netanyahu Fears U.S. Policy
Post-November 2
 
   Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fears the policies President Obama will enact toward Israel after this week’s midterm elections, a senior Palestinian Authority official told this column.
 
   The PA official, as well as security sources in Egypt and Jordan, said the Obama administration outlined to them a series of moves to pressure Israel after the Nov. 2 vote.
 
   Among the moves would be holding back support for Israel when it comes to future resolutions condemning the Jewish state at the United Nations.
 
   Also, the U.S. is likely to tacitly back a Palestinian threat to unilaterally declare a state at the UN Security Council if Netanyahu fails to reach an agreement with the PA.
 
   The sources said the Obama administration has already quietly dropped U.S. opposition to PA President Mahmoud Abbas forging a unity deal with Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
 
   Until now, the U.S. has publicly taken a policy of isolating Hamas, a terrorist organization, although there have been recent signs of U.S. rapprochement toward the Islamic group. Netanyahu has argued that Hamas stands in the way of a pan-Palestinian future settlement.
 
   The PA and Middle East sources said that Obama is joining a chorus of European Union officials in demanding that Israel evacuate almost the entire West Bank and eastern sections of Jerusalem in a future deal with the Palestinians.
 
   Netanyahu wants to keep what are known as the main settlement blocs – Ariel, Gush Etzion and Maale Adumin – a position mostly supported by the U.S. government. Now there are signs the Obama administration will call for Israel to evacuate the large town of Ariel in any settlement with the Palestinians, the sources told WorldNetDaily.
 
   Last week, a PA official told this column that White House officials informed the Palestinians that President Obama is waiting until after the midterm elections to press Israel harder for a deal to create a Palestinian state.
 

   Israel had become an issue in this week’s senatorial and congressional races. An extensive poll released last month showed a growing number of Americans support Israel over the Palestinians and will vote for political candidates based on their stance regarding the Jewish state.

 

New Homeland Security Official An
Admirer Of Radical Islamic Theologian
 
   Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has sworn in a member of her agency’s Advisory Council who is a strong supporter of the radical Islamist theologian who calls for war with the non-Muslim world and whose teachings inspired and continues to govern al-Qaeda and Islamic terrorist organizations worldwide.
 
   Mohamed Elibiary, president and CEO of the Freedom and Justice Foundationof Carrollton, Texas, also spoke at a conference that honored the anti-U.S. founder of the Iranian Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Khomeini. Elibiary has strongly criticized the government’s persecution of fundraisers for Hamas and is a defender of the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR.
 
   Elibiary fervently endorses the teachings of Egyptian writer Sayyid Qutb, who is widely considered the father of the modern Islamic terrorist revolution. Osama bin Laden and terror groups worldwide rely on Qutb for their fatwas and ideology.
 

   In a defining fatwa, Qutb labels the non-Muslim world the Dar-ul-Harb – the house of war.

   “A Muslim can have only two possible relations with Dar-ul-Harb: peace with a contractual agreement, or war,” wrote Qutb.
 
   Elibiary, meanwhile, has criticized the U.S. government’s prosecution and conviction of the Holy Land Foundation and five former officials for providing more than $12 million to Hamas, depicting the case as a defeat for the United States.
 
   In 2004, Elibiary was one of seven advertised speakers at an Irving conference entitled “A Tribute to Great Islamic Visionary,” celebrating the 16th anniversary of Khomeini’s death. Under a heading “Selected Sayings of Holy Prophet,” one advertisement read: “Allah has made Islam to prevail over all other religions.”
 
   One speaker at the conference, reported Dallas-Forth Worth TV station KTVT, was a Washington, D.C., imam, Mohammad Asi, known for his radical views. Asi issued a strongly worded anti-American, anti-Jewish speech in which he said American imperialism and pro-Israel Zionism are “diabolical, aggressive, bloodthirsty ideologies that are trying to take over the world and destroy Islam.”
 

   Another speaker at the conference, a 10-year-old boy, opened the tribute by praising Khomeini for reviving “pure” Islamic thinking and saving the religion from being conquered by the West, reported CBS-11. The boy called President Bush “the greatest enemy of the Muslim Ummah,” KTVT reported.
