Extreme Vetting: Obama's Half-Brother and Trump's Debate Guest is a Supporter of Islamic Terror Group Hamas

Last night the Trump campaign announced President Obama's half-brother, Malik, will be the GOP candidate's guest tonight at the final presidential debate in Las Vegas.

Malik has been an outspoken opponent of the President and a vocal supporter of Donald Trump. There's just one big problem: He's a supporter of the Iranian backed Islamic terror organization Hamas.

A reminder from the National Counter Terrorism Center of what Hamas is:

HAMAS formed in late 1987 at the beginning of the first Palestinian intifada (uprising). Its roots are in the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, and it is supported by a robust sociopolitical structure inside the Palestinian territories. The group’s charter calls for establishing an Islamic Palestinian state in place of Israel and rejects all agreements made between the PLO and Israel. HAMAS’ strength is concentrated in the Gaza Strip and areas of the West Bank.

HAMAS has a military wing known as the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades that has conducted many anti-Israel attacks in both Israel and the Palestinian territories since the 1990s. These attacks have included large-scale bombings against Israeli civilian targets, small-arms attacks, improvised roadside explosives, and rocket attacks.

And a look at how Hamas supporters reacted to the 9/11/2001 attacks on America: 

Apparently there's no "extreme vetting" for Trump's debate guests.
