Grover Norquist is not ONLY what you think he is! Back in October, Republican Rep. Frank Wolf outed Grover in Congress. Norquist has carried water for Islamic supremacist attempts to weaken anti-terror efforts. Frank Gaffney revealed that "Norquist was also a prime-mover behind efforts to secure one of the Islamists' top pre-9/11 agenda items: the abolition of a section of the 1996 Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act that permits authorities to use what critics call ‘secret evidence.' ... Norquist was an honoree at an event held by Sami Al-Arian's National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom in July 2001, two months before 9/11. The award was for being a 'champion of the abolishment movement against secret evidence.'" Al-Arian in 2006 pleaded guilty "conspiracy to make or receive contributions of funds to or for the benefit of Palestinian Islamic Jihad." Palestinian Islamic Jihad celebrates the killing of Israeli civilians and calls repeatedly for the destruction of Israel. Norquist also introduced Nihad Awad, co-founder and executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, to President Bush. CAIR is one of the foremost Islamic supremacist hate sponsors in the U.S. Terror expert Steve Emerson wrote that "CAIR, which touts itself as America's premier Muslim civil rights organization, was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Terror trial." He noted that CAIR co-founders Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad attended "a 1993 Philadelphia meeting where the HAMAS members and supporters discussed a strategy to kill the Oslo Peace Accords, which threatened to marginalize HAMAS. The group also discussed ways to improve HAMAS fundraising in America." Norquist is working with groups linked to NIAC, the shills for the Islamic Republic of Iran who have Islamic supremacist Reza Aslan on their Board and who have defrauded the federal government, lied to Congressmen, paid for Congressional testimony, and arranged secret US/Iran meetings. The unelected regime that is currently controlling Iran has a reputation for spending Iranian national assets around the world to buy friends and good will -- a necessary part of its plan to remain in power and continue its unappealing behavior, such as financing terrorism around the world and abrogating its commitment under the nuclear non-proliferation treaty by developing nuclear weapons. An American Thinker expose recently stated that the Khomeinist regime has been assisted in perpetuating these activities thanks to the support of a Washington lobbyist, Grover Norquist, and his involvement with the American Conservative Defense Alliance (ACDA). ACDA has actively supported the Campaign for a New American Policy for Iran (CNAPI), which in turn is linked both to the Council for American-Islamic Relations [CAIR] and the National Iranian American Council (NIAC). A recent CBS "60 Minutes" program states that Grover Norquist is "the most powerful conservative man in Washington." If that is true, his support for these groups is troubling. The Iranian American community widely believes NIAC – ACDA's partner in many of its efforts -- to be a Washington lobby group for the Khomeinist regime leadership. NIAC has long advocated unconditional negotiations with Tehran, and the total abandonment of all economic sanctions and military options against the Iranian regime. NIAC's advocacy appears as a deftly veiled refusal to support the Iranian democracy activists and the Iranian freedom movement. This is not only un-American but contradicts all conservative ideals. The founder of NIAC, Trita Parsi is an unpopular figure within the Iranian-American community, as can be seen from his high disapproval ratings in a July 2011 poll of over 1800 Iranian Americans taken by the Pro-Democracy Movement of Iran. What these lobbyists recount to Americans such as Norquist and the members of the US government are distortions and lies. The lobbyists claim that the majority of the people of Iran are religious; that they are happy with this blight of a regime, and that economic sanctions only hurt the people. They say that military intervention will only strengthen the resolve of the Iranian people to fight on the side of the regime, and that support for the freedom movement will discourage the Islamic regime from coming to the negotiating table. These statements are simply not true. In the 32 years that have passed since Iran was hijacked by this regime, every elected U.S. president -- from Jimmy Carter, to President Reagan on down to President Obama -- has tried to negotiate with the Islamic regime. Not only have these negotiations been for naught, they have allowed Iran to buy time to continue building its illegal nuclear weapons program. The latest IAEA report now puts the Iranian Revolutionary Guards nearer completing their nuclear bomb than ever before. Grover Norquist has 94% of congress, and is obviously in league with the Iraninan regime that may be the world’s biggest threat to peace.
