“Historic” Day: Terror supporters mix with Congress – where was the media?

“Where was security? … We’re curious, because this two-day Islamist lobbying and political muscle flexing — dubbed “National Muslim Advocacy Day and Palestine Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill” — was organized by a radical Muslim Brotherhood umbrella group led by actual terrorism suspects.

April 13th 2015 came and went.  For most Americans it was simply 2 days before taxes were due.

At the U.S. Congressional Rayburn House Office Building in Washington DC it marked the 1st Annual National Muslim Advocacy Day.

Sponsored by the US Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), the event reportedly featured over 280 delegates gathered from more than 20 states to meet with elected officials and congressional staffers.  According to USCMO, it was “designed to connect national, regional and state Muslim organizations [and] community members with more than one third of the U.S. House of Representatives and a half of the Senate.’

ICNA, CAIR and USCMO coined it “historic”. 

Mainstream news outlets? …. well, they didn’t even report on it … at least we were unable to find any mention.  What coverage that we did find,  was primarily limited to online blogs and publications.

One unexpected report came from a leading financial source, Investors Business Daily in their editorial section:

Democrats Embrace Terror Suspects On Hill During ‘Muslim Advocacy Day’

04/20/2015 07:01 PM ET

Infiltration: Two-hundred eighty Muslim “leaders” stormed the U.S. Capitol last week, taking grip-and-grin photos with Democrats and even visiting the office of their national committee chief. Where was security?

We’re curious, because this two-day Islamist lobbying and political muscle flexing — dubbed “National Muslim Advocacy Day and Palestine Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill” — was organized by a radical Muslim Brotherhood umbrella group led by actual terrorism suspects.

At least one of them already has been behind bars, another has been the subject of both FBI and National Security Agency investigations and the rest “should be in jail, not on Capitol Hill” freely roaming the halls of American power, asserted a veteran FBI agent.

“These are leaders of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood in America,” said John Guandolo. Yet “they are moving around the nation’s Capitol freely without any fear of the FBI or anyone else arresting them.”

And that’s precisely what they lobbied against — investigation and prosecution. Hundreds of these radical Muslim “activists” fanned out across the Hill to knock on doors of members of Congress to express their opposition to anti-terrorism investigations in the Muslim community and American mosques.

USCMO’s formation as another front of the Muslim Brotherhood is fairly clear.  In it’s report on National Muslim Advocacy Day, the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch (GMBDW) noted:

In December 2014, the GMBDW was the first to report that the USCMO had announced plans to hold what was described as the first-of-its-kind National Muslim Advocacy Day. The GMBDW reported in March 2014 on the formation of the USCMO, comprised of eight US Muslim organizations most of which are part of the US Muslim Brotherhood:

The National Muslim Advocacy Day event was probably best summed up by the headline from www.westernjournalism.com with, “A Major Muslim Group Just Made A Bold Move To Gain More Power In The US Government“.  

Sidenote:  The described activities were combined with “Palestine Advocacy Day” but this was not mentioned or promoted in USCMO coordinated press items.
