Hey Gov Kaine! You should know your Appointees
Our governor Kaine appoints a man who supports "the jihad way."
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine examined online videos Thursday that show a man he appointed to the state Commission on Immigration condemning Israel and advocating "the jihad way," his spokesman said.
In a video that appears on YouTube, Muslim American Society president Dr. Esam S. Omesh is shown at an August 2006 rally in Washington denouncing an invasion of Lebanon by the "Israeli war machine."
Omesh, chief of the division of general surgery at INOVA Alexandria Hospital, also accused Israel of genocide and massacres against Palestinians and said the "Israeli agenda" controls Congress.
In a separate, undated video, Omesh tells a crowd of Washington-area Muslims: "...you have learned the way, that you have known that the jihad way is the way to liberate your land."
BVBL wonders how Kaine did not know this. I agree. Appointing the Jihad Way to our immigration commission was a bone head move by Kaine and staff.
