Supreme Court Pick Displays Alarming Affinity toward America’s Enemies

With confirmation hearings scheduled to begin in 10 days, new revelations about Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan show that she has a long history of supporting radical Islam, from protecting the Saudis from a major 9-11 lawsuit to accepting large donations from the Middle East while fighting to have the U.S. military banned from Harvard.

“For all of her hostility toward our troops, the next Supreme Court justice has nothing but affection for one of its primary suspects: radical Muslims in the Middle East,” writes Family Research Council (FRC) president, Tony Perkins. “While she was busy booting U.S. recruiters from Harvard’s campus, Kagan welcomed the influence of a major donor from Saudi Arabia. Twenty million dollars later, the same woman who called the military’s ban on homosexuality a ‘moral outrage’ didn’t seem to mind when her university accepted money from a Saudi Arabian prince whose country actually executes gays.”

This is not the only time Ms. Kagan has displayed an affinity toward America’s enemies. During the past year, while serving as Solicitor General, Kagan used her position to protect the Saudis from a major 9-11 lawsuit, Perkins says.

“When the victims’ families tried to sue the Islamic nation for funneling money to terrorists before the attacks, Kagan lobbied for the Supreme Court to reject the case,” he writes.

“Ms. Kagan’s terrorist sympathies even extend to her days at Harvard. In a letter buried in the congressional archives, she and three other law school deans (including Georgetown Law, another recipient of the Saudi prince’s largesse) urged the Senate to soften its treatment of the enemy combatants at Guantanamo by stripping the President’s power to detain them.”

These revelations have disturbed members of the Judiciary Committee, such as Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) who recently addressed them on the Senate floor.

“Ms. Kagan was perfectly willing to obstruct the U.S. military – which has liberated countless Muslims from the hate and tyranny of Saddam Hussein and the Taliban,” Sen. Sessions said. “But it seems she sat on the sidelines as Harvard created an Islamic Studies Center funded by – and dedicated to – foreign leaders presiding over a legal system that violates what would appear to be her position. She fought the ability of our own soldiers to access campus resources, but not those who spread the oppressive tenets of Islamic Sharia law.”

He added: “Perhaps her response was guided by campus politics. But . . .much of her career has been spent actively engaged in liberal politics – not legal practice.”

Perkins is urging concerned citizens to contact their senators and tell them that “we need a Justice who will support our troops, not side with their enemy!”
