……It will be interesting to see how FBI Director Mueller will respond to the news that his Hamas homeboy Kifah Mustapha hosted a fundraiser for Hamas in his Chicago-area mosque a year before he was selected to participate in the Citizen Academy program. The Hamas fundraiser was held on July 3, 2009 at the Mosque Foundation, and featured former UK far-left politician George Galloway as the keynote speaker. The event was held to raise money for Galloway’s Viva Palestina blockade-busting convoy to Hamas-controlled Gaza.
That Galloway was raising money for Hamas was hardly a secret. Four months prior to his appearance with Mustapha at the Mosque Foundation, Galloway presented a bag of cash to Hamas social minister Ahmad Kurd – a designated global terrorist according to the U.S. government – live on Al-Jazeera. For defying international sanctions, terrorist Kurd called Galloway “a hero”. As a result, Canada banned Galloway from re-entering the country on “national security” grounds.
Galloway’s U.S. fundraising for Hamas also caught the attention of Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), chairman of the House Subcommittee on Terrorism, who sent letters to Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman asking for an investigation into Viva Palestina’s activities.
Mustapha’s role in the July 2009 Hamas fundraiser isn’t in question either, as a picture posted on the Mosque Foundation’s own website documenting the event shows the FBI’s favorite Hamas operative sitting beside Galloway, who is speaking at the podium flanked by two bodyguards. The mosque event was first noticed by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
The article notes that in the face of calls from angry citizens, the FBI initially denied the Citizen Academy story and called it “fabricated” before finally admitting it was true.
Kifah Mustapha is the same Hamas operative and unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history, who was escorted into the top-secret National Counterterrorism Center and other secure government facilities, including the FBI’s training center at Quantico, during the “Citizen’s Academy” stunt.

As I’ve said before, we need a complete changing of the guard, because the one we have may as well work for the enemy.
