Last month, Biden was humiliated by the Muslim communities in Michigan and Minnesota during the primaries. The Muslim/Arab population decided to vote “uncommitted” due to their belief that the Administration wasn’t acting in their interests. Lacking the Muslim vote in these two key states could be a potential loss for the Biden/Harris campaign in the 2024 elections. With this possible loss of at least one critical swing state, Biden is now trying to pander to the Muslim communities for their votes. The campaign knows they are losing to President Donald J. Trump and cannot afford to throw away these voters. So, in the latest stunt to pander to pro-Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood-linked organizations, and people previously investigated by the FBI, like Hatem Abudayyeh. President Biden decided to have his staff meet with actors in one of the major hubs of terrorist activity in America in Chicago, Illinois, on Thursday, March 14th.

President Biden didn’t invite upstanding citizens within the community to meet with his staff members; he chose anti-American, pro-Hamas terrorist-linked organizations and individuals. This comes as no surprise to us at Loomered.com; we have written many pieces exposing the Biden’s administrative picks being tied to or funded by terrorist organizations. In October of 2023, Loomered.com wrote about the leader of USPCN (United States Palestinian Community Network), Hatem Abudayyeh’s ties to the Obama/Biden administration while under investigation by the FBI for possible links to designated terrorist organizations like Hamas and PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.) Read HERE.

“In 2011, he had his bank accounts frozen on suspicion of terrorism financing. Abudayyeh is also the National Chair of (USPCN) the U.S. Palestinian Community Network and coordinates all Media around their counter-protests within the Chicagoland area. He has held this position since April 2012. This means he was hired by the organization after the raids on his house by the FBI for his links to Hamas, as all of his financial accounts were frozen in 2011.

Since then, Abudayyeh has helped coordinate multiple violent rallies all over the world, including the most recent counter-protest to the “Solidarity with Israel” event in Skokie, IL, which took place on October 22, 2023. As recently as 2019, Abudayyeh has been mentioned in U.S. State Department assessments for his links with designated terrorist organizations. Additionally, in 2017, Abudayyeh was reportedly the coordinator of the defense committee for Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh’s defense before she was deported to Jordan in 2017 on charges of immigration fraud. In 1969, Odeh was the mastermind behind a supermarket bombing for the PFLP, which killed two college students. She also once attempted to bomb the British consulate in Jerusalem.”

Since then, Hatem Abudayyeh has been spotted at a pro-Hamas encampment at Northwestern University. Over 40 of these encampments have popped up across the United States in the last week. Many members of terrorist organizations have shown up in solidarity with the students who attend these universities. It came as no surprise that someone like Hatem would make his face known during this turbulent time in America.

Watch our interaction with him BELOW:

Knowing all this about Hatem Abudayyeh, it begs the question, “Why has the Biden administration had such a long-standing relationship with a man who has been on and off the FBI’s watch list?” He shouldn’t even be on the list of people the Biden administration is willing to meet with.

In 2021, Loomered.com wrote an expose about Biden hiring Maher Bitar.

Bitar has a long history of terror associations, dating back to his time in college at Georgetown where he was on the executive board of the school’s chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine, which has documented ties to Islamic terrorist organizations including Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the Marxist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).” SJP has spent decades pretending to be an innocent, grassroots pro-Palestinian group, but instead, it is a group that is dedicated to the destruction of Israel with a history of inviting convicted terrorists to speak at their meetings and conventions. Additionally, SJP is the largest anti-Israel campus group in the country, and numerous Congressional testimonies show dangerously close ties between SJP and Islamic terrorists. SJP was co-founded at UC-Berkeley by Hatem Bazian in 2000. Bazian is an anti-American and anti-Jewish activist who has called for the killing of Jews and the destruction of Israel. Bitar happily served on the executive board of SJP.

Recently, Laura Loomer pointed out on her X account that Maher Bitar is the person at the National Security Council who directed security officials not to focus on Hamas and Hezbollah in the weeks leading up to Oct 7th. President Biden and his administration have jihadists inside their circle leading the charge and forcing the President to focus on un-American, pro-Hamas issues.

When the Biden Administration announced they were going to meet with “Arab/Muslim leaders within the Chicagoland community,” it came as no shock to us at Loomered.com he would choose to meet with those who wish to tear apart the fabric of our society; those that lead the destructive protests across all major cities within the United States, terrorize Jewish events, and intimidate the public at a large.

Politico reported , “Thursday’s meeting would mark the latest in ongoing efforts by the Biden White House to hear directly about concerns over the situation in Gaza, though that is hardly expected to be the only issue discussed. Officials are also expected to more broadly discuss concerns about Islamophobia in the US in the aftermath of Hamas’ terror attacks on October 7.

Among those expected to participate in the meeting, according to sources, are: Tom Perez, the White House’s director of intergovernmental affairs; Steve Benjamin, White House director of public engagement; Mazen Basrawi, White House liaison to Muslim-American communities; Curtis Ried, the National Security Council chief of staff; and aides Dan Koh and Jamie Citron.

Vivian Khalaf, chairman of the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund board, told CNN that she was invited to Thursday’s meeting with White House officials but declined to attend. In an interview, she made clear her deep dissatisfaction with the Biden administration’s handling of the humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

According to a letter signed by Muslim Brotherhood-linked organizations and leaders previously investigated by the FBI for their ties to Hamas, PFLP, Hezbollah, and other notable communist organizations, they denied the White House’s request to meet.

“Text of Letter sent to White House officials, declining requested meeting with Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim leadership in Chicago at this time:

‘This letter is to communicate with transparency and clarity why the Palestinian American leadership of Chicagoland has unanimously decided (along with key Muslim and Arab leadership) against attending planned meetings with White House officials in Chicago this week. First, there is no point in more meetings. The White House already knows the position of the aforementioned groups and our allies across the nation. They know because we have made it abundantly clear, including in prior meetings with the White House, but also in press statements, letters to our elected leaders, media interviews, and enormous street action within earshot of the Oval Office. With a genocide that has flattened Gaza, forcibly displacing 85% of its residents, and claiming the lives of 31,000 people, 13,000 of whom are children, the White House has not only refused to call for a ceasefire, but also enabled this blatant campaign of ethnic cleansing to take place by providing financial and military means, as well as diplomatic support at the United Nations. A meeting of the minds is nowhere in sight. Second, there is no confusion as to our consistent demand for an immediate and permanent ceasefire to end the mass murder of civilians and stave off the worst humanitarian crisis in modern times. We believe another meeting would only act to whitewash months of White House inaction followed by meek handouts. We are interested in serious action. Offering a belated trickle of aid, whether air drops or temporary piers, to captive Palestinian civilians who continue to be shot like fish in a barrel, but remaining unwilling or unable to cease the killing is like dishing out Band-Aids with one hand, while wielding an axe with the other. Poll after poll shows that a clear majority of the American public supports a ceasefire, taking issue with the inaction of the White House and Congress. The people’s voices must be heard. We stand with a diverse coalition of our fellow Americans when we demand, at minimum, an immediate and permanent ceasefire, complete Israeli withdrawal from Gaza, ultimately ending the siege and blockade of Gaza, allowing the natural flow of humanitarian aid, reinstating funding to UNRWA, a cessation of weapons sales or transfers to Israel, and accountability measures for all war crimes, crimes against humanity, the crime of genocide, and justice and liberation for the Palestinians. That is what history will judge us by, not more token meetings when every day is of the essence.'”

Most notably on this list are: American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), the United Holy Land Fund, the US Campaign for Palestinian Rights Action, and the US Palestinian Community Network (USPCN). These organizations have proven ties to the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas via the Holyland Foundation Trial or have leaders who have been under investigation by the FBI for their links to designated terrorist organizations. AMP was proven to be linked to Hamas. USPCN is run by Hatem Abudayyeh. Loomered.com printed an investigative report on Hatem Abudayyeh back in October of 2023, after the October 7th terrorist attack on innocent Israelis by Hamas.

“In 2011, he had his bank accounts frozen on suspicion of terrorism financing. Abudayyeh is also the National Chair of (USPCN) the U.S. Palestinian Community Network and coordinates all Media around their counter-protests within the Chicagoland area. He has held this position since April 2012. This means he was hired by the organization after the raids on his house by the FBI for his links to Hamas, as all of his financial accounts were frozen in 2011.”

This meeting also follows the cancellation of a Matisyahu concert at the House of Blues in Chicago, Illinois, due to antisemitic pressure from Hatem Abudayyeh and his USPCN organization. Hatem has been behind most of the pro-Hamas protests in the MidWest region, some of which have crossed the entirety of the US. However, according to the Politico article, the WH Staff was talking to these same organizations that are harassing the Jewish communities about a “rise in Islamophobia.”

 

 

Not only do they not care about the blatant intimidation tactics by Muslim Brotherhood-linked organizations towards Jews in the city of Chicago, but they contacted people like Hatem Abudayyeh, leader of USPCN, and others whom the Federal government has investigated for their links to designated terrorist organizations. Hatem also intimidated an Israel Rally that was scheduled in October at Federal Plaza in Chicago, Illinois, and the leader was forced to cancel due to security concerns. I personally rerouted this protest to the Israel Advocacy Rally in Skokie, IL, where Hatem Abudayyeh tried to, again, intimidate Jews and their allies from holding the event. The protestors he brought beat up Jews and allies while walking into and leaving the event. 

WATCH: Pro- HAMAS Muslims and Palestinians shout “shame on you” at Jews in the majority Jewish city of Skokie Illinois as they leave the Kosher supermarket and stores in this predominantly Kosher shopping plaza. The Palestinians moved their rally from Downtown Chicago, to Skokie, so they could purposefully target Jews on a Sunday. Skokie is one of the most Jewish communities in Illinois. It became nationally famous in 1977 and 1978 when Nazis who wanted to have their Nazi March in Skokie, were shut down. The case known as National Socialist Party of America v. Village of Skokie, went all the way to US Supreme Court.

 

 

 

TPUSA staffer Peter Christos attended a pro-Israel rally in Skokie, Illinois to show support for the country after being attacked by the Palestinian terrorist group, Hamas. Upon arriving, Christos met with another TPUSA employee to enter the event but was subsequently denied by law enforcement due to maximum event capacity.

Pro-Hamas protestors who were also in attendance quickly identified the two TPUSA employees as pro-Israel and began following them. As both Christos and his coworker began making their way back to the main road, the group of aggressors following them began to grow. Many of these pro-Hamas protestors began threatening, harassing, and kicking the two employees as they were walking away.

Fearing for their safety, the two men quickly made their way back to the main road, where they noticed an elderly orthodox Jewish couple who was there for the pro-Israel rally but appeared lost and confused. Christos offered to escort the elderly couple through the crowd of protestors to ensure their safety.

But the situation immediately escalated when the pro-Hamas protestors punched Christos in the back of the head. As the protestors began to dog-pile on Christos, another individual hit him on the head with a flag pole that was displaying a Palestinian flag.

Back in 2011, Hatem Abudayyeh met with the Obama/Biden administration while under FBI investigation, as reported by Loomered.com in October 2023. It makes sense that the now-Biden Administration would reach out to him to see how his 2024 Campaign can garner his votes. However, according to Hatem, Biden isn’t doing enough for him and his terrorist-sympathizing friends.

Hatem Abudayyeh had this to say about the meeting with White House Staff members, “‘Absolute sell-out’: “All the Palestinian leadership we work with in Chicago have rejected this overture, and USPCN [U.S. Palestinian Community Network] considers anyone — Palestinian, Muslim, Arab — who takes a meeting with the White House to be an absolute sell-out. There’s no more time for meetings,” said Hatem Abudayyeh, an organizer with the group.

American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) is another organization in the letter that was invited to speak with Biden’s White House Staff. AMP is an unindicted co-conspirator of the Holyland Foundation Trial, which linked them to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. A quick history of this organization shows you they are linked to designated terrorist organizations.

According to Canary Mission, As of February 2019, the AMP board included Salah Sarsour, who was listed [p.48] in a 2001 FBI memo as an American fundraiser for Hamas through the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) charity. HLF assets were frozen by the U.S. Treasury in 2001 after it discovered that HLF was funneling money to Hamas.”

As of July 2022, AMP’s staff and national board featured an array of anti-Israel activists.

Hatem Bazian, chairman of AMP’s national board and based in San Fransisco, has spread anti-Semitism, denied Jewish peoplehood and history and called for an “intifada” in America. In 2015, he said [00:14:22]: “Our Congress is an Israeli-occupied territory.”

Neveen Ayesh, the Government Relations Coordinator of AMP’s St. Louis, Missouri chapter, has advocated for violence against Jews, called to “burn” Israelis into “ashes,” praised the Hamas terror group and spread hatred of America and Israel.

In May 2020, Ayesh was exposed on the floor of the Missouri House of Represenatives for having lied to legislators about her views on Jews, Israel and the BDS movement.

Salah Sarsour, an AMP national board member based in the Milwaukee area, was allegedly active with and reportedly fundraised for Hamas. He has also spread anti-Semitism and promoted incitement. In 2016, he called MB spiritual leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi his “سيدي [master].”

Osama Abuirshaid, AMP’s Executive Director based in Washington D.C., has expressed support for Hamas, spread [00:14:30] anti-Semitism, promoted anti-Israel incitement and praised the MB.

Taher Herzallah, AMP’s Director of Outreach & Grassroots Organizing based in Washington D.C., promoted terrorism against Israel and was convicted of disrupting a speech by an Israeli ambassador.

Sana Daoud, a 2018 AMP national board member based in the Chicago area, spread anti-Semitic incitement during the “Knife Intifada” in 2015, praised members of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and honored Hamas leaders.

Sufian Nabhan, a 2018 AMP national board member based in the Detroit area, spread anti-Israel conspiracy theories and tweeted in 2016 that al-Qaradawi was “ شيخنا الفاضل [our honorable Sheikh].”

Shakeel Syed, a 2018 AMP national board member based in the Los Angeles area, has used an anti-Semitic slur, defended Hamas and demonized Israel.

Mohamad Habehh, the AMP Director of Development, spread hatred of Jews, joked about the Holocaust, celebrated anti-Semitic violence and defended Hamas.

Sayel Kayed, the 2018 president of the AMP chapter in New Jersey, has pushed anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, expressed support for terrorists and spread incitement.

Mariam El-Khatib, the leader of AMP’s Minnesota chapter, has expressed support for Hamas and justified the stabbing of Israeli Jews.

Tarek Khalil, the AMP Education Coordinator, has promoted incitement, trivialized anti-Semitism, expressed support for violent protests and spread hatred of Israel.

Ayah Ziyadeh, the AMP National Advocacy Director, has defended terrorism, expressed support for terrorists, promoted incitement and demonized Israeli Jews. Ziyadeh has also demonized Israel and endorsed an anti-Israel agitator.

Vivan Khalaf, Chairman of the board of the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund, not only signed this letter with others, she went on a public smear campaign about being invited to speak with the White House Staff members. She is a lawyer out of Palos Hills, Illinois, with offices in Ramallah, Israel.

The Palestine Children’s Fund has links to terrorist organizations as well.

According to NGO Monitor

  • In 2004, the Holy Land Foundation attempted to make a donation of $50,000 to PCRF to “provide immediate relief services.” The HLF assets were frozen by the U.S. Treasury in 2001 based on evidence that it was funneling money to Hamas.
  • In 2003, the United States Department of Justice published a bulletin claiming that “the unofficial HAMAS website…contained a hyperlink to the official HAMAS site, as well as to several United States-based charities, including…the Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund.” The bulletin also claimed that the “unofficial Hizballah Website…did contain a hyperlink to what was described as the official Hizballah Website…as well as to the unofficial HAMAS site (www.hamas.org)…and the Palestinian Children’s Relief Fund.”
  • According to PCRF’s 2022 annual report, PCRF partners with Islamic Relief Palestine (IRPAL), an “affiliate” of Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW). 

The question remains: why do we have the United States President’s staffers, at the behest of the President himself, meeting with people who support, are financed by, and have ties to designated terrorist organizations? As Americans, we should never do business with our adversaries.

According to Joel Fischer, “In the Last 24 hours, Biden has given Iran $10 Billion dollars and offered to meet with Muslim organizations in Chicago; Rep. Schumer called for a regime change in Israel, and Biden imposed sanctions on more Israelis.” Joel claims this is “an all-out political warfare on our ally, rewards for terrorists, their sponsors, and allies.”

But remember, these meetings were supposed to be about Islamophobia– not selling out the American people by submitting to jihadists through antisemitic means and throwing our closest ally, Israel, under the bus.
