When President Obama was first elected, he and his administration went out of their way to exclude Arab-Christians from any top federal jobs, in which amounts to discrimination, something the Democrats always like to bring up against Republicans.
Barnabas Aid, a Christian organization reported on Thanksgiving, that in a Wiki-leaked email, it reported that New York attorney Preeta D. Bansal, who had served in the Clinton Administration in the 1990s, compiled a list of Muslim-Americans to be considered for top government posts by the Obama transition team.
Family Security Matters (FSM), who reports on issues surrounding national security, uncovered the Wiki-Leaks email back in October 2016, but the mainstream media never reported on it.
“Here are the compiled lists of Asian American and Muslim American candidates for top Administration jobs, sub-cabinet jobs, and outside boards/agencies/policy committees. A couple things to note about the list of Muslim American candidates: In the candidates for top jobs, I excluded those with some Arab American background but who are not Muslim (e.g., George Mitchell). Many Lebanese Americans, for example, are Christian [BF emphasis]. In the last list (of outside boards/commissions), most who are listed appear to be Muslim American, except that a handful (where noted) may be Arab American but of uncertain religion (esp. Christian).”
“I listed the elected Muslim American democratic officials at the end of the second category, but for various reasons, I didn’t think any of them would necessarily be suitable for an Administration appointment. Nevertheless, I wanted to flag them for you in case you wanted to evaluate them further.”
Reaction from the American Middle East community was swift. John Hajjar, co-chair of the Middle East Christian Committee (MECHRIC) explained that rampant discrimination had been going throughout the Obama years. “We always felt the cold shoulder of the Democratic Party establishment in the past eight years. Their bigotry has now been laid bare.” He continued, “This discriminatory email is un-American, libelous and should cause the author and those who conspired against Arab Christians to be held accountable.”
“So, they were actively excluding Christians in favor of Muslims? This is a pattern we have seen before… Arab Christians have been routinely excluded from acting as translators for even the most sensitive classified information. It is an open secret that Muslims have been favored for many years, going back to the Clinton Administration, “FSM said.
“Yet, it is Muslims from the Middle East who are given asylum in the US, not Christians. Out of the 7551 Syrian refugees brought to the US in 2016, only 35 were Christian. It is the Christians who are persecuted and are being exterminated by the various warring Muslim factions, “said FSM.
“If Hillary Clinton was elected, it is a certainty that the plight of Christianity will be snuffed out in the Holy Land… and it is certain Mrs. Clinton will not lift a finger to stop it.”
