Plus two weeks -- coming under fire for not allowing American families to -- the White House the administration is today being slammed for opening the doors but to a controversial man.
This guy here Sheikh Abdul -- -- He's the vice president of the international union of Muslim scholars.
That's a group founded by an Egyptian cleric.
Who is considered so radical that the United States banned him from even entering the country.
The White House defending the meeting saying have been by -- has spoken out against al-Qaeda in the past.
But that is not letting them off the hook.
-- this week.
Rich Lowry is with the national review he's a Fox News contributor he joins me now aren't so.
So this shake comes to the White House in June 13 it just happened and they are admitting that that happened.
But his boss and his group he works for he's vice president of the international union Muslim scholars are very controversial.
-- Group which is just horrible actor is it career jurist and the guy who actually pay paid -- visit his boss -- Austria.
-- said nice things about Nazis basically endorsed genocide against Hughes and all the rest of it.
The guy you want but I have been bias in any great shakes but he.
Into worse this 2000 -- about -- from this group against US troops.
In Iraq so for me he basically morally has blood on its hands and what -- -- -- -- say.
Okay is not all the way out there where al-Qaeda is but this is -- very controversial policy where they basically welcome.
Non violent islamists into the White House and think they can be worked -- and.
They claim by where we have proud of the -- is Mike we're good.
And it arrogant abuse are.
-- and a him in Manhattan hello Richard abilities -- have stress -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- get the Miley goes out the audience actually hear you so I don't make sure we're gonna check my Walt stick it.
It's got bad.
-- said so they -- this is what the White House is saying he he he did come.
But this thing is he has rejected Al -- justification for terrorism he's been criticized by violent extremists for doing that.
And they point out that what they discussed was poverty global health help efforts.
And the efforts to counter the al-Qaeda narrative so we needed somebody like that to help us with -- efforts.
-- it's at the big questions where you draw the line.
Anti drug if you draw the -- just short of al-Qaeda.
-- -- welcoming all whole batch of Nazi actors who basically don't accept Israel's existence who endorsed.
Forms of terrorism and support Hamas even if they're not engaged in it themselves or do you draw the line.
You know much further.
Beyond that -- I think it's more appropriate because there's this ideological war going on within Islam.
And it's not just it's al-Qaeda against everyone else you have a war.
Between these types who -- radicals.
And more genuine moderates and when you're welcome these people in the White House he give them credibility was the first thing he does he goes on his website.
And post the pictures it's a great bragging point right for him.
And -- this organization is also pushing the UN to criminalize so called blasphemy.
Around the world and that's another that's horribly ill liberal.
Measure is used to suppress free speech is used to -- execute minorities and you have brave Muslims within Muslim countries.
Opposing -- -- -- meeting with them instead of a guy like -- Because this group this international union Muslim scholars founded by the suggestion Egyptian cleric this not discuss that and an Egyptian cleric but -- -- as the vice president have -- and this group is said to have called for the death of Jews and Americans.
And I mean it that's obviously problematic to have somebody is the vice president that group -- the White House and meeting with senior administration officials.
Couldn't find somebody else wasn't so -- -- was denounced al-Qaeda and the fox Y and you know we really -- nonetheless bring this message back -- you think so and critics of the policy say.
Look it's like and meeting with nonviolent Nazis and you would have Nazis they're just they propagandist in the ideology -- in the writers they are actually operating.
The gas chambers and cells but they are part of a grand totalitarian effort and it I would put them -- -- -- Within that category as a dark vision that is ultimately after and one we should be resistant as you point out does it have to happen you know in DC at the White House.
You know under circumstances that can be used for propaganda purposes rich good questions thank you think -- much.
