Dr. Al Halabi is an associate professor at
University. You can contact Dr. Al Halabi at firstname.lastname@example.org , Phone: 561-297-3182, Cell 1-888-4-BASSEM . This information is open sourced from Dr. Alhalabi’s FAU website.
According to Discover the Networks.org, “Al Halabi served as a research assistant for
University of South
Florida professor Sami Al-Arian, who was the North American leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). Al Halabi and Al-Arian co-wrote several publications, one of which was featured at a conference in
Damascus — the home base of PIJ. When Al Halabi first sought employment at FAU, he named Al-Arian as a reference.
Al Halabi also produced some publications with Hussam Jubara, who co-founded, along with Sami Al-Arian, the Islamic Committee for
Palestine. Al Halabi acknowledges having worked for his “close friend,” Jubara.
Al Halabi once illegally shipped to
Syria a $13,000 thermal imaging device, an item commonly used by fire departments, military units, and law-enforcement and government agencies to produce heat-sensitive images of buildings and landscapes. The Commerce Department restricts the export of such devices to foreign countries. Al Halabi claimed that he had sent it as a gift to his brother, who allegedly wanted to use it to search for gold.
As punishment for having sent this illegal shipment, Al Halabi was sentenced to a one-year loss of his export privileges.”
Ahmed Bedier’s past show close ties to convicted terrorist Sami Al-Arian. Ahmed Bedier was for all intents and purposes Sami Al-Arian’s protégé. Ahmed Bedier’s protégé is Z.J. Hafeez who is running for the 67th Congressional seat in
Discover the Networks.org has uncovered, “Ahmed Bedier is President of the Tampa/Hillsborough County Human Rights Council in
Florida. He is also a co-host (with Samar Jarrah) of WMNF-FM’sTrue Talk, a Muslim radio talk show.
Bedier has had ties to radical Islam since at least 2002, when he was the Outreach Director for theIslamic Society of Pinellas County(
Florida), a mosque whose website features material calling for violence against Jews. Moreover, hehas cultivatedrelationships with organizations and individuals connected to anti-Israel terrorist groups overseas, including Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), and Hezbollah.
In February 2003 Bedier began working asCommunications Director for the
FloridaCouncil on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). This was subsequent to CAIR’sinvolvement in the funding of Hamas, which had taken place prior to December 2001, at which time Hamas’ American financing wing, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), was shut down by the
chapter of the
Also in February 2003,the Tampa-based terrorist and former University of South Floridaprofessor Sami al-Arian was taken into custody by the FBI –indicted for his leadership role within Palestinian Islamic Jihad.Bedier became Al-Arian's“unofficial spokesman,” holdingpress conferences where he voicedconcern about the government’s treatment of the professor, and allowing hisradio programto be used as a propagandavehicle for al-Arian’s family and his PIJ colleagues.
In December 2003 CAIR opened a separate office in
Tampa, and Bedier was named its Executive Director.
In December 2005 Bedier appeared on local Fox 13 WTVT’sYour Turn with Kathy Fountainto discuss Sami al-Arian’s ongoing legal troubles. During the show, Bedier was asked if he believed that al-Arian’s involvement with PIJ was immoral, to which he replied: “To a certain degree. Now, before 1995 there wasnothing immoral about it.” It should be noted thatPIJ had taken credit for five pre-1995 terrorist attacks that resulted in the deaths of eight innocent people.
Bedier left CAIR in May 2008.On
December 30, 2008, he joined hundreds ofdemonstrators in apro-Hamas rallyin
Tampa. Organized in large part by the Muslim American Society, the event featured signs that read “End Zionism” and “Zionism is Cancer; Radiate It.” Some participants at the protest donned keffiyehs, Palestinian symbols of violence worn as scarves.
On his radio program, Bedier often conveys his opinionson controversial matters through his guests. For example, on
July 21, 2006 –while
Israel’s war in
Lebanon against Hezbollah was raging –Bedier’s three guests filled the entire show, to Bedier's approval, withexpressions of praisefor Hezbollah.
In early 2009 Bedier established United Voices for America, a political advocacy organization that aims to portray Islam as a religion of peace and tolerance.”
Ahmed Bedier’s United Voices for
America is trying to portray Islam as a religion of peace of tolerance by their example. On State Capitol property Dr. Al Habali goes Muslim on Joe Kaufman and J. Mark Campbell. Ahmed Bedier does not even have the decency to apologize to the victims of Al Habali’s bigoted hate crime.
United Voices For America’s Bedier and Al Habali are the poster boys for Islamic hate and violence against Non-Muslims on and off the
Florida taxpayers Capitol steps. The entire United Voices for
America organization stinks from the top down and is a true representation of Political Islam in action on American soil. UVA has the right to petition their elected officials for a redress of grievances but we the Florida Security Council and ACT! For
America have a duty to inform our Legislators and the public at large of Ahmed Bedier’s and Dr. Al Habali’s ties to terrorism and their disdain for our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
Florida’s Legislators have a duty to publicly shame Bedier, Al Habali, and the United Voices for
America and make them answer for their past associations to convicted terrorists, support of terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah, and the March 11th attacks against two innocent Non-Muslims during Muslim Capitol Day 2010.
