Obama Plans To Import 100m Middle East Muslims To United States, Source Says

by | 26th, February 2011

BARACK Obama’s plan is to save the Middle East by relocating the region to Washington, Montana and and any empty office space in New York. Richard Bartholomew writes on the latest Obama conspiracy theory:

DAVID Corn has some fun with conspiracy theorist Avi Lipkin:

…here’s the mother of all right-wing conspiracy theories: Obama is scheming to bring tens of millions of Muslims—perhaps up to 100 million—from the Middle East into the United States in order to turn this country into an Islamic nation by the end of his second term.

Fortunately, this diabolical plan has been exposed by an American-born Israeli named Avi Lipkin, who says he once was a translator for the Israeli government, and an outfit called Special Guests, which books conservative commentators and advocates on popular television and radio talk shows. Lipkin’s website claims that since 1990 he has lectured on various topics—including the threat of Islam and Israel—in over 1000 churches and synagogues in the United Sates, Canada, England, Greece, Israel, and other countries. His bio notes that he heads the Judeo-Christian Bible Bloc party in Israel.

I blogged on Lipkin and his “Judeo-Christian Bible Bloc”  in 2006 . Lipkin can be hired alone or as part of a double act with none other than Walid Shoebat; according to the Special Guests  website :

This is an interview opportunity you do not want your audience to miss. Call Special Guests today. Walid Shoebat and Avi Lipkin are available as guests individually or together as a panel.

Shoebat and Lipkin were also co-promoted by Special Guests last month, alongside the former mayor of Shiloh in Israel, as pundits  on Egypt :

CONTACT: Amy Reis or Lynne Campbell of Special Guests at: 630-848-0750. Avi is available by phone for radio or via satellite from Jerusalem for television.

…Conducting Talk Show interviews on this topic are a panel of guests (pick one, some, all or none) including Middle East policy analyst, Avi Lipkin, an Israeli citizen, former member of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and a former translator inside the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office.

…Regarding the recent so-called ‘leaderless’ protest in Egypt, Avi Lipkin stated, “There is no doubt that if the Mubarek regime falls, the only group powerful enough and cohesive enough to rule Egypt will be The Muslim Brotherhood.

This would be a repeat of Jimmy Carter’s toppling of the Shaw [sic] of Iran and the ushering in of a fanatic government with The Muslim Brotherhood who has promised a war with Israel.”

…And former terrorist Walid Shoebat, who discusses street protest through the eyes of a terrorist. He knows up front and personally just what the behind-the-scenes leaders are doing to fan the flames of the so-called leaderless protest.

Lipkin and Shoebat have appeared together before:  in 2007 they were part of a “prophecy conference” alongside Jack Hibbs, John Higgins, David Hocking, and Jacob Prasch . As I’ve blogged previously, Shoebat, like Lipkin, claims that Obama is a Muslim:  this is why Obama supports access to abortion, as part of a plot to weaken the USA. Shoebat has also worked with  Glen Beck’s “end times prophet” Joel Richardson to spread the idea that the Bible predicts the coming of a Muslim anti-Christ.

Corn also gives some background to the Special Guests PR outfit:

According to its website, the organization has collaborated with the National Right To Life Committee, the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, the Second Amendment Foundation, and other conservative groups. The siteboasts, “We regularly place guests on radio shows including Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity Radio, [and] Michael Savage.” The group says it only promotes causes that “are pleasing to The Maker, our Creator.” It asks potential clients, “What is your special message? Is it helpful to humanity? Is it God-honoring?” Apparently, it pleases God to accuse the president of covertly plotting—and implementing!—a Muslim takeover of the United States.

The organisation was also discussed by Karl Grossman of FAIR  in 2006 :

Speaking of the politics of media, it’s a clear and daily demonstration to me of how the right, far more than the left, realizes the importance of communication…. The most active PR operation that pitches us is Special Guests.

…The president of Special Guests is Jerry McGlothlin who, he explained, at 22 got into “the art business printing lithographs of starving artists” and became a millionaire. After he utilized his intense energy to sell a lithograph to Thomas Madden, a former vice president of NBC who went into PR, “Tom told me, ‘You’re a natural for PR.’”

For a time he was partners with Madden, one-time PR director for ABC and author of the memoir  Spin Man .

A key event for Special Guests occurred in 1988, two years after its founding, when McGlothlin was able to get Operation Rescue founder Randall Terry booked on the Oprah Winfrey Show. That national television exposure “launched” Terry and his anti-abortion drive as “a national movement,” said McGlothlin. This convinced him that he could not only “make money” through PR, but “you can move social causes! You can change the world!”

Since that TV appearance, he proudly noted, 80,000 people have been arrested in protests against abortion, twice the number, he said, arrested during the
