Obama administration officials meet with Shaykh Abdullah Bin Bayyah to look for ‘new mechanisms to communicate’

An Islamic leader, with ties to the terrorist group Hamas and advocates of killing of American soldiers in Iraq met with senior Obama administration officials at the White House earlier this month.

Shaykh Abdullah Bin BayyahIn a posting on his website, brought to The Daily Caller’s attention by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Shaykh Abdullah Bin Bayyah revealed that he met at the White House on June 13 with Gayle Smith, senior director of the National Security Council, and Rashad Hussain, President Obama’s special envoy Organization of the Islamic Conference, among other officials.

The posting also initially stated that the “national security adviser” was at the meeting, without naming him directly, though that part of the post was removed shortly after according to the Daily Caller.

Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyah all the more inexplicable. Bin Bayyah is vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a group founded by and headed by Egyptian cleric Yusuf Qaradawi.

Qaradawi is considered so radical that the United States has banned him from entering the country.

Qaradawi is considered the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, has called for the killing of Jews and Americans and therefore, has been banned from entering the country.

We asked for this meeting to learn from you and we need to be looking for new mechanisms to communicate with you and the Association of Muslim Scholars (another name used for the IUMS),” Gayle Smith, senior director of the National Security Council, reportedly said (per Bayyah)

Bin Bayyah lobbied the White House to “take urgent action” to help Syrian rebels. “We demand Washington take a greater role in [Syria],” Bin Bayyah told Al-Jazeera. President Obama later announced plans to arm Syrian rebels.
