MAKES SENSE: Obama’s New ISIS Czar Was Once Fired by His Own Administration for Terror Ties

Judicial Watch

A radical foreign policy adviser fired by President Obama years ago for
meeting with the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas is back as the
administration’s new czar in charge of countering the Islamic State of Iraq
and Greater Syria (ISIS).

The White House downplayed the new appointment by burying it deep in a
press briefing delivered at a Paris hotel during the recent climate summit.
“The President recently elevated Rob Malley, the NSC [National Security
Council] Coordinator for the Middle East and North Africa, to serve now as
the Senior Advisor to the President for the Counter-ISIL Campaign in Iraq
and Syria,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said during the
briefing at the Marriott Rive Gauche Hotel and Conference Center. Before
moving onto the next topic Earnest said the president has directed Malley
to “support our reinvigorated diplomatic track toward a political
transition in Syria…”

Malley has a well-documented history of sympathizing with extremists, which
makes this appointment rather outrageous. Judicial Watch wrote about Malley
last year when Obama made him the senior director at the NSC even though
the president had dumped him as a foreign policy adviser for meeting with
and having regular contact with Hamas, long classified a terrorist
organization by the U.S. State Department. Malley’s family had close ties
to Yasser Arafat, founder of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)
and the Fatah movement, and Malley was an adviser in Bill Clinton’s White
House. He consistently exonerates Palestinians and condemns Israel.

Over the years he has published a number of newspaper opinion pieces urging
the United States to reach out and negotiate with terrorist enemies like
Hamas, Hezbollah and Muqtada al-Sadr. A website that documents the networks
and agendas of the political left offers details about Malley’s scary past
and provides links to the egregious articles he’s published, including
several co-written with Hussein Agha, a former adviser to Arafat. In 2007
Malley published an op-ed piece in a mainstream newspaper expressing strong
support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a murderous tyrant who has
been credited with helping ISIS rise.

Malley grew up in France and his Egyptian-born father was a key figure in
Egypt’s communist party and a close friend of Arafat’s. His parents were
fervently anti-Israel and huge supporters of several leftist revolutionary
liberation movements, especially the Palestinian cause. Malley published a
piece in a mainstream newspaper declaring that Israel was responsible for
the failure of Bill Clinton’s peace talks with the Palestinians. Malley
attended the 2000 event, which was held at Camp David because it was the
site of the landmark 1978 Israeli-Egyptian peace accords.

Shortly after Obama got elected president 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).”

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 helps answer this, albeit with another
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?”

Do you sense a pattern in the backgrounds of people Obama appoints to positions with access to sensitive data concerning Islamic terror?  He has made it a habit to appoint people who are either members of, or have close association with, the Muslim Brotherhood, and various cells that feed into the Muslim Brotherhood.  Anyone find that … well, alarming?
