Klayman accuses defendants of “laundering U.S. dollars” through HAMAS to attack Israel, Americans and Israeli-American citizens
WASHINGTON – Last Thursday, Attorney Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, filed a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) complaint in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, naming President Barack Obama, his half-brother Malik Obama (an officer of the Barack H. Obama Foundation), Secretary of State John Kerry, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and HAMAS (in Arabic, an acronym for “Harakat Al-Muqawama Al-Islamia” – Islamic Resistance Movement) as the government of Gaza, Palestinian Authority.
Klayman, who recently won a preliminary ruling in another case against the Obama administration, holding the National Security Agency’s spying on Americans is likely unconstitutional, is accusing defendants of “laundering U.S. dollars” through HAMAS, officially designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. government, for the purchase of rockets and to construct tunnels for the purpose of attacking Israel, terrorizing and killing American and dual American-Israeli citizens in Israel.
Klayman stated, “The nation and the world have increasingly come to see that Obama views himself primarily as a Muslim and acts accordingly in favoring Islamic interests over Judeo-Christian ones, and the complaint lays out Obama’s history in documented detail.”
The complaint alleges defendants have engaged in fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, conversion and corruption.
Klayman was in Israel when HAMAS attacked and said he was subject to terrorist threats, fear, intimidation and blackmail from HAMAS, aimed at coercing him from exercising his legal rights in violation of the Hobbs Act in an attempt to deny his freedom to travel and conduct public advocacy, business and other activities in Israel, using threats and intimidation to try to get Klayman to leave Israel and disengage with Israel.
The complaint alleges the defendants conspired to send hundreds of millions of dollars to HAMAS under the pretense the financial support would be used for humanitarian purposes.
It was recently confirmed, however, by Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) that some of those U.S. dollars were found in the bombed chief HAMAS financial officer’s car have fallen into the hands of HAMAS’ terrorist arm, elected by the citizens of Gaza to govern them.
According to the complaint, just seven months before the Benghazi attacks, Clinton asked Congress to authorize a $770 million “slush fund,” which she called “The Middle East and North Africa Incentive Fund,” to be used at her discretion anywhere in North Africa or the Middle East.
Clinton insisted the funds be “flexible and easily employed” without providing any specifics as to how the money would be used.
Clinton then caused the money from that slush fund to flow to both HAMAS and the Muslim Brotherhood with the knowledge those funds would be used to buy arms and other military equipment to be used against Israel, Jews and Christians.
Klayman alleges the State Department has not provided any official report or account of how that money was used.
The complaint states, “On information and belief, Hillary Clinton directed that activities at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and nearby CIA Annex to transfer weapons previously poured into Libya and liberated from the Libyan military to Muslim Brotherhood groups in the Middle East, including in Syria (to what is now ISIS / ISIL) and HAMAS in Gaza.”
Klayman states in his complaint that HAMAS and the Muslim Brotherhood, HAMAS’ umbrella parent organization, are “agenda driven,” seeking to achieve their own self-initiated political and territorial goals, rather than “grievance driven” in response to actions by other nations or groups, despite their efforts to use grievences in their propaganda.
He notes the charter of HAMAS calls for the destruction of Israel and the establishment of an Islamic state in place of Israel.
Klayman alleges HAMAS asked defendants for and received funds and other support from the United States of America under the apparent guise it was for humanitarian aid for the people living in Gaza but used those funds instead to finance and carry out its pattern and practice of violent crimes, murder and terrorism.
The lawsuit documents the founding of HAMAS in late 1987 by the late Sheik Ahmad Yasinat as part of the first Palestinian Intifada (uprising) to replace the Palestinian Liberation Organization with a more radical, militant alternative and stated HAMAS is a Palestinian branch of the worldwide Muslim Brotherhood.
Quoting from various sources, Klayman also states HAMAS is not seeking to co-exist and compromise, it is willing to sacrifice as many Palestinian lives as it takes to achieve its goal of conquering the globe and building an Islamic state on every inch of the globe.
Destruction of Israel is not its final goal. The final goal is to build an Islamic caliphate by wiping out all other civilizations.
Klayman states it is unknown whether the president has given Malik Obama permission to use his name but also said no effort has been made by the president to discourage the authority of Malik Obama to be raising funds under the name of the Barack H. Obama Foundation.
Klayman points out he could have run the Malik Obama Foundation but didn’t, thus he is leading people to believe his efforts are sanctioned by his brother, the president of the United States.
Malik received an IRS determination letter dated June 11, 2011, granting him retroactive tax-exempt status, but only after it became public he had been operating as a 501(c) 3 foundation since 2008 without ever applying to the IRS.
According to the complaint, “Defendant Malik Obama raises funding and other support both through the Barack H. Obama Foundation and through other organizations to facilitate violence, terrorism, and warfare carried out by HAMAS as a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood and by the Muslim Brotherhood generally.”
Klayman states two leaked classified documents reveal Egyptian security forces have been monitoring Malik Obama’s activities, while also implicating President Obama, Clinton and her husband, former president Bill Clinton in the aiding and abetting of terrorists.
A photo of Malik Obama at a conference in Yemen in 2010, shows him wearing a scarf displaying the slogan, “Jerusalem is ours – We are coming.”
This would lead one to believe Malik Obama specifically supports the goal of Muslim occupation and possession of Jerusalem while supporting HAMAS violence as a means of taking Jerusalem from the Jews and Israel for the benefit of HAMAS.
Klayman accuses the defendants of providing material support to the preparation and carrying out of numerous acts of international terrorism and as a result of such support to terrorist groups, they have violated the law of nations, established U.S. law, international laws, treaties and norms.
Klayman is seeking an award in excess of $500 million or $1.5 billion in trebled damages, punitive damages and other relief the court may deem just and proper.
