State Department Tweets Speech by Cleric Who Blames Unrest on Global Zionist Conspiracy

The State Department’s counterterrorism office is facing pushback after promoting recent remarks by a Muslim cleric who blamed regional unrest in the Middle East on what he called a “conspiracy” by a “new global colonialism allied to world Zionism.”

The State Department’s official anti-terrorism Twitter account last week tweeted out remarks made by a leading Muslim cleric who, during a speech in Mecca, linked terrorism by the Islamic State (IS) to a plot by supporters of Israel around the world.

    Ahmed al-Tayeb is not just anybody. (For those who haven’t bothered to study Islam, this is the head Muslim IN THE WORLD.) He is the Grand Imam of Al Azhar.

    When Ahmed al-Tayeb speaks about Islam, his words are AUTHORITATIVE. You would not be far off if you thought of him as the ‘Islamic pope’. He is basically saying, ‘Death to America and Death to Israel’. Muslim will interpret his coded language. He is agreeing with ISIS with these words. He is threatening us.

    You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout I’m telling you why Santa Clause is coming to town.

  • What a bunch of Muslim crapola – supported in the USA by head Muslim Obama’s state department.

    Islam is nothing but “colonialism” under the disguise of religion.

    Think of it, in non-Arab Muslim countries (like Pakistan), the population has to pray in Arabic and bow towards Mecca. The British never required the population to bow towards London.

    Islam – the Arab world’s unwanted gift, of Islamic social dysfunction, to the world.

    Anytime I’ve seen an imam about to say something weapons grade stupid, the index finger always goes in the air first. It’s like an alert. Index finger goes up… now watch out!

    If anybody in the US was enforcing sedition laws, the US State Department and Obama would have been charged by now.
