This is absolute lunacy.
Quoting the leader of a new peace movement, Obama said that “‘we must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.'”
Um, a new peace movement? Really?
The White House is being strongly criticized for its decision to invite Sheikh Abdullah Bin Bayyah to a June 13 meeting with President Obama’s national security staff. Bin Bayyah is a controversial pro-Hamas scholar with ties to radicals, including the Muslim Brotherhood.
Bin Bayyah is vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, a group founded by Egyptian cleric Yusuf Qaradawi — a Muslim Brotherhood leader who has called for the death of Jews and Americans and himself is banned from visiting the U.S. The International Union of Muslim Scholars said in 2004 that it was the duty of Muslims to kill U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
The White House is disputing that Bin Bayyah is a supporter of terrorism, pointing to a 2010 statement in which he rejected a fatwa that has been used as the basis for Al Qaeda attacks.
Oh, we guess we should take this guy at his word, huh? Well, Susan Power does:
President Obama quoted Sheikh bin Bayyah in #UNGA speech: “We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.”

Guess what else this man of peace has called for? The killing of American troops.
President Obama’s top national security advisers have just hosted Sheikh Abdulla bin Bayyah at the White House. As vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS) in 2004, bin Bayyah endorsed a fatwa calling for the killing of American troops and other personnel serving in Iraq.
Bin Bayyah is the principal deputy to Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s chief sharia jurist and the driving force of the IUMS. In addition to being behind the 2004 fatwa, Qaradawi also promotes suicide bombing against Israel. The IUMS strongly supports the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch, Hamas, the terrorist organization designated as such under American law.
This is sickening.
