Tom Perez is the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Upon winning a narrow victory over Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), who has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Perez named Ellison his deputy.
In 2009, while U.S. Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, Perez gave a speech to the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), which is a Muslim Brotherhood front group. During his speech, Perez referred to MPAC as representing “the best of America”.
Also in his speech, Perez touted Sharia law and said he was inspired by the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca:
Salam Al-Marayati, the founder of MPAC, supports Hamas and Hezbollah; he also blamed the Jews for 9/11. In the video / photos below, al-Marayati can be seen with Nation of Islam (NOI) leader, Louis Farrakhan. Also seen is Mahdi Bray, once head of another Muslim Brotherhood front, the Muslim American Society (MAS).
Next to Bray is the Muslim outreach director for perhaps the most radical Mosque in the U.S., Dar al-Hijarh. To give you an idea, Anwar al-Awlaki was once an Imam there and was visited by three of the 9/11 hijackers. The mosque was also visited by Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the global Muslim Brotherhood.
When you pull back from that shot, you can see Ellison on the far left (no pun intended).
Here is the entire :28 video:
It’s well known that the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) and Farrakhan’s NOI are cut from the same cloth and are in league together.
There is one significant difference between the brand of Islam practiced by NOI and NBPP. It’s a form of Islam that focuses on the black race. The departure of this interpretation of Islam is what got Malcolm X assassinated.
However, the current struggle has created allies. The followers of the Muslim Brotherhood / Arabic interpretation of Islam are working with NBPP and NOI out of political necessity because both groups are Islamic and view America as a greater threat.
This brings us back to Perez, who is the one who dropped the voter intimidation case against two New Black Panther members at a Philadelphia polling station in 2008. The case was won but Perez dropped it, thereby coming to the defense of the NBPP.
Afterward, J. Christian Adams, a career attorney with the Civil Rights Division in the Department of Justice, resigned and went public. In a 2010 interview with Megyn Kelly, Adams practically accused Perez of committing perjury when explaining his decision to drop the case:
Prior to Perez winning the DNC chairmanship, renowned and respected Harvard liberal Alan Dershowitz stated that if Ellison were elected Chairman, he would leave the Democrat Party. Dershowitz’s reasoning was that Ellison is an anti-semite and friend of Farrakhan.
After Perez was elected, Dershowitz insisted that he would NOT be leaving the Party because Perez represented a shift back to the center for the Democrats:
Unfortunately, Dershowitz’s logic smacks of illogic. Lost on him is that not only did Perez name Ellison as his deputy but Perez is friendly with the same unsavory, Muslim characters that Ellison is.
Oh, and there’s that little part about committing perjury while defending his decision to drop an ironclad case against the New Black Panther Party (NBPP).
