A senior reporter for the right-of-center World Net Daily (WND) has been described by an adviser for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as having an overtly Jewish demeanor while appearing on Fox News, as reported by World Net Daily on Oct. 20, 2013.
WND’s Aaron Klein reports of his recent contentious e-mail exchange with DHS adviser Mohamed Elibiary.
Klein queried the Obama adviser to comment on his recent Twitter warning of the Tea Party “attempting to change the U.S. political landscape through ‘Christianist Xenophobia.’”
According to Klein, Elibiary also accused certain “white identity/privilege types” of having a problem with a “black president” and “brown Mexicans.”
When asked by WND what exactly a “Christianist” was, Elibiary defined such as:
Christians who mix theology and nationalism. Christianists view today’s politics through a theologically influenced (Calvinist) view of America’s founding.
You Had Me at Christianist…
Not quite done yet, the Janet Napolitano appointee informed Klein that his news service fell into his definition of “Christianist.”
WND certainly would often times fall in this camp as well as perhaps a subset of Christianists that political scientists refer to as ‘Christian Zionists’ because of its foreign policy worldview through a dispensationalist end-time theology.
Klein informed Elibiary that he wasn’t a Christian, but Jewish.
Elibiary responded he had already come to the conclusion that Klein was Jewish “with the last name of Klein and your demeanor in video I saw of you on Fox. But I also know WND ubber Christian.”
Other than Elibiary not knowing how to properly spell “über” Klein did inquire, “What about my demeanor on Fox would say I am Jewish?”
Most Jews are less alarmist, more reserved. Most Christianists go overboard trying to emotionally sway their audience.
Are his Heroes Zeroes…?
Not exactly his first brush with controversy, Elibiary was cited by Ron Dreher of The American Conservative for having “publicly defended the late Muslim Brotherhood jihad ideologist Sayyid Qutb as a positive spiritual influence. Qutb, understand, called for global holy war to subjugate the planet — including dissenting Muslims — for radical Islam.”
Not quite content to define a Islamic Jihadist as a positive spiritual influence, Elibiary went on to declare at the 2010 Dallas Muslim Conference that the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Ayatollah Khomeini was a “great Islamic visionary.”
Under Khomeini’s leadership, the US Embassy in Tehran was overrun and the staff held hostage for 444 days. On the same day Ronald Reagan was sworn in as president, the American hostages were released by the Khomeini regime.
