Karen Hughes - Dhimmi or non-Dhimmi

I'm taking bets she is a dhimmi. Here's the first articles about Karen's meeting with the ISNA, the Islamic terrorist front propaganda organization. Interestingly she also met with the MSA, the Nazi Youth Corp for Islam. I bet she has done zero web searches and read zero books on ISNA, MSA or Islam in general (Esposito and Hughes do not count as they write fairy tales.)

Foggy Bottom misstep? Washington Times Joel Mowbray warns Karen, but will she listen?

Not only is Mrs. Hughes publicly endorsing the Islamic Society of North America with her mere presence, but this is the first major public address in her new role leading public diplomacy with the Muslim world.
Asked whether the woman who was instrumental in Mr. Bush winning the White House knew the true nature of the group she is speaking to in Chicago this weekend, State Department spokes-man Noel Clay responded, "Karen Hughes has been briefed on the organization."

Somehow, it just doesn't seem likely that Mrs. Hughes has been fully briefed on ISNA. If she had, she almost certainly wouldn't be headlining its annual conference — let alone as her first major appearance in her new post.

Of all the Muslim groups claiming to be moderate in this country, ISNA is perhaps the easiest to expose as anything but. Spun off of the Saudi-created and funded Muslim Students Association more than 20 years ago, ISNA is likely the largest single provider of Islamic materials to mosques in America.
For a sampling of what might be contained in Saudi-sponsored pamphlets and literature, one need look no further than the Freedom House report issued earlier this year. Using moderate Muslim volunteers to gather Saudi-published or sponsored materials in more than a dozen prominent mosques across the country, Freedom House found shocking intolerance, anti-Semitism and even advocacy of violence.
Though the Freedom House report does not specify if ISNA was responsible for funneling any of the most offensive literature into mosques, ISNA's own track record suggests that it would do so willingly.

At the 39th annual ISNA conference, held in Washington, several speakers on a panel agreed emphatically that there was no proof that Osama bin Laden was behind September 11 — and this occurred just shy of the one-year anniversary of the attacks.
During a session dedicated to the aftermath of September 11 — not how Islam needs to be reformed to strip the religious justification of future such terrorism, but rather on how to fight back against attacks on Islam — a questioner expressed his anger that the Muslim leadership in the United States had "asked [Muslims] to accept the blame for 9/11."

The three prominent members of the panel all rushed to assure the questioner that, in fact, they weren't really sure that al Qaeda was behind September 11, or if any Muslim was at all. According to a transcript provided by the Investigative Project, panel moderator Jamal Barzinji, the then-director of the International Institute of Islamic Thought, responded, "It is not only that we don't have any proof, but the FBI doesn't have any proof. They are still looking."

Former ISNA President Muzammil H. Siddiqi, who was still on the board, added, "We cannot say in surety whoever did it or not." Rounding out the bizarre denials of al Qaeda's culpability for September 11, the then-president of Muslim-American Society, Suhail al Ganouchi, opined, "Probably we'll never know who actually did it, or who, what, or what groups."

But ISNA does more than just provide a forum for September 11 deniers. For sale on its online bookstore is a tome by former Illinois Rep. Paul Findley, published in the summer of 2001, which lavishes praise on Osama bin Laden.

And Frank Gaffney warns her. Don't go there, Mrs. Hughes

Now, Karen Hughes is set to address – and, thereby, to provide political cover to – yet another problematic Muslim-American organization, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), at its large annual convention in Chicago over Labor Day weekend. As with the Bush Administration’s outreach to Alamoudi and the AMC and its endorsement of al-Arian’s campaign against secret evidence, Mrs. Hughes would make be making a first-order strategic error were she to embrace ISNA.

TOO LATE, It's Official, Karen Hughes, Dhimmi, but is she in the same league as Condoleeza Rice? Stay Tuned.

IslamOnine.Net: "As we want Muslim voices to speak out against terror and violence and extremism, it is equally important that we be mindful of speaking out against all voices of hate and incitement including those raised against Muslims themselves," Karen Hughes told the opening of the annual meeting of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) on Friday, September 2.

Hughes, one of Bush's closest communications advisers, urged people of all faiths to speak out against the "backlash and widespread demonization of Islam and Muslims" that followed the 9/11 attacks and the London bombings, blamed on Muslim extremists.

Guardian Borsa Italia: ``We need to foster a sense of common interest and common values among Americans and people of different faiths and different cultures,'' Hughes said at a news conference opening the three-day event...

Arab News: Describing her meeting with Muslim leaders September 1, Hughes said that it was "a fascinating experience," which helped her to understand more about a number of things, from language, to public diplomacy outreach, to policy issues in "a very open and honest way."

ISNA was among 145 American-Muslim organizations and mosques that issued a fatwa, or religious ruling, in July condemning terrorism and extremism, Hughes noted. (See related article.)

The fatwa said that there is no justification in Islam for terrorism.

"The Muslim World and the entire world need to hear this," Hughes said.

Bush confidante Karen Hughes meets with American Muslims

President Bush's ambassador to the Arab world enlisted new allies to condemn terror after a meeting with some of the nation's senior Islamic leaders and young Muslims on Friday.

Karen Hughes, Bush's newly named undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs, praised an initiative by the Islamic Society of North America to publish and disseminate a brochure denouncing violence and building on a fatwa, or religious edict, condemning terrorism issued by American Muslim scholars more than a month ago.

Hughes helped kick off a three-day convention of the country's largest Islamic organization, composed mostly of Arab and South Asian Muslims, at the Rosemont Convention Center.

"Words are important," Hughes said. "It's important for people to hear ... terrorism is the epitome of injustice ... especially when we face an enemy that misappropriates words. Those are words the entire world needs to hear. My job is to amplify those voices."

Kareem Irfan, a Chicago attorney who serves on the society's national board, said he hopes the measure will cast out "inklings of doubt from segments of society" who do not understand that Islam is a religion of peace.

"This has not been taken for political correctness," he said. "This has not been taken to be apologetic. This was done because of a passionate belief."

But some Muslim participants said they were not impressed by the initiative or by Hughes' pledge to promote their cause to other nations. They called for straight talk instead of propaganda. By endorsing the fatwa and inviting Hughes, they said, the society is doing a disservice to the fight for civil liberties and colluding with the government.

"It will separate the Muslims," said Warith Deen Umar, a controversial New York cleric who helped found the National Association of Muslim Chaplains and who opposes the fatwa. "If we don't sign on to this, we are the bad guys."

A former TV reporter and longtime adviser to Bush, Hughes now is entrusted with shaping America's image abroad, with an emphasis on promoting democracy in the Arab world, a mission some say the administration has neglected.

"As we seek to engage the wider Muslim world, I thought it was, first of all, very important to listen and try to understand and work with the voices of our own American Muslim community," she said.

Hughes also met with young leaders from the national Muslim Student Association. Those conversations touched on civil liberties, Hughes said, adding that she would report to committees that advise the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security.

She said she is confident that international audiences will welcome American ideals and values once they are explained accurately and honestly.

"Truth is our most powerful weapon," Hughes said. "We're dealing with an enemy ... a terrorist network that wants to close minds."

Karen Hughes's alignment with ISNA is a very bad sign. As you pointed out, that particular organization is easy to expose for what it is. And ISNA continues to expouse the position that Muslims were not responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

Of course, let's not forget the influence of Grover Norquist, who appears to be a Muslim convert. Norquist has Rove's ear; Rove has Bush's ear. And I suspect that Rove also has Hughes's ear.

One thing which alarms me is the pressure from CAIR, ISNA, and other Muslims organizations to silence any criticsm of Islam--instead of those organizations' showing that Islam is compatible with Western society. By using such a tactic, the organizations are tacitly showing the truth about Islam. Is anyone listening???
