Crazy! Obama Makes Terrorist Sympathizer Head of the Counter ISIS Campaign!

Judicial Watch reported that Barack Obama appointed Rob Malley, the NSC [National Security Council] Coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa, to a new position– the Senior Advisor to the President for the Counter-ISIL Campaign in Iraq and Syria.

Malley was fired several years ago for meeting with the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, a group the U.S. State Department has long classified as a terrorist group.

Malley is now directed to “support our reinvigorated diplomatic track toward a political transition in Syria…”

Malley’s family had close ties to Yasser Arafat, founder of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the Fatah movement. His father, Simon Malley, was a key member of the Egyptian Communist Party.

Over the years Malley has co-written a number of opinion columns with Hussein Agha, a former adviser to Arafat. His articles have condemned Israel, urged the U.S. to disengage from the Jewish state, and negotiate with its enemies Hamas, Hezbollah, and Muqtada al-Sadr.

Judicial Watch reports that after Obama’s 2008 election:

“Israel’s largest news site revealed that the Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat reported that Hamas engaged in talks with Obama for months through his “fired” adviser. The article quotes Ahmad Yousuf, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh’s political advisor, saying this: “We were in contact with a number of Obama’s aides through the Internet, and later met with some of them in Gaza, but they advised us not to come out with any statements, as they may have a negative effect on his election campaign and be used by Republican candidate John McCain (to attack Obama).”

Judicial Watch asks:

“How can Americans possibly confide in Malley to help dismantle what is arguably the world’s deadliest and most brazen terrorist group?

A Florida-based Jewish weekly answers with a rhetorical question:

“With a history of dissing Israel, snuggling up to Hamas, shielding Assad, and promoting the containment of a nuclear-armed Iran, is it any surprise that Malley is Obama’s choice to spearhead the U.S. response to ISIS?”
