Has Florida Forgotten Jihadi Pulse Attack?

You would think Florida would be the last state that would welcome a Syrian Cleric who advocates the death penalty for homosexuals and holy war against Jews and those in the West. Apparently the Islamic Center of Pinellas County near Tampa, Florida has put the Pulse jihad attack behind them as they choose to invite this “world renown scholar” to speak January 6, 2017.

Syrian Sheikh Rateb Al-Nabulsi was welcomed by our State Department in 2014 to visit 17 different cities speaking and collecting money for the Syrian opposition to Assad. The Syrian American Council and Shaam Relief, partnered with the Muslim Brotherhood was integral in bringing him here to the US.

The approval of his visa occurred even though Al-Nabulsi was on video advocating for the death penalty for homosexuals, and was reported by the Inestigative Project on Terrorism as saying this,

“All the Jewish people are combatant. They do not have a career that a military rank does not encounter: doctor, pilot, engineer, for example, is a tank commander. Every civilian citizen. They do not have a regular army; they have a reserve army, and all the people can fight, so this is essentially an entirely aggressive entity from A to Z. This is the Sharia ruling.”

According to the New York Post the State Department defended their decision to admit Al-Nabulsi as one of their officials reported that visa requests especially from countries that sponsor terror get scrutinized. One official stated,

“Every visa applicant undergoes a screening to detect connections to terrorism, and that includes inputs from multiple federal partners.”

If these screenings are any indication of the scrutiny of the Syrian refugees are receiving, Americans should be extremely concerned for their personal safety and the security of the country.

If they can fail so badly when they have multiple sources of background information at their disposal, what kind of assurance do the American people have that they are making wise decisions with NO background information at all on the refugees and immigrants being allowed in our country?

How can a State Department with access to these open-sourced videos and documents not make decisions in the best interest of the American people? Why does the State Department still extend an open and welcoming stance to a Syrian Cleric advocating for the death of homosexuals 8 months following an Islamic jihad attack on a gay bar in Orlando, Florida?

The answer is simple. We have been under the direction of an enemy in the White House.

Prior to the Pulse jihadi attack, Alan Kornman with The United West, brought another Muslim Cleric, Iranian Sheikh Sekaleshfar, to the attention of WFTV 9 News in Orlando. This man openly called for the killing of gays as the compassionate thing to do, and spoke in Sanford, Florida at the Husseini Islamic Center.

So, here we are once again having to swallow the absolute deception of a President Obama who speaks out of two sides of his mouth and a State Department that has become impotent when it comes to protecting this country. Obama sets the tone for his duplicitous manner when it comes to Islamic terrorism and gay rights.

On the one hand he drapes the White House in rainbow colors, appoints a gay man, Eric Fanning, for the Secretary of the Army and names Stonewall a National Monument for gay rights. On the other hand, he courts the Muslim Brotherhood/HAMAS by allowing hate-filled clerics like Al-Nabulsi and Sekaleshfar who advocate violence against gays, to come and whip up the Muslims attending these Mosques and Islamic Centers into carrying out more atrocities on the American people.

The good people of Florida need to speak up against the Islamization of their state and demand that clerics like Al-Nabulsi turn right back around and go back to where they came from.

It is time for a new Secretary of State to designate the Muslim Brotherhood and all those front groups associated with them as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. Only then will our law enforcement be able to root them out and put a stop to the sponsoring of jihad promoting clerics and Imams from spreading their ideology of hate.
