White House Party Crasher Has Ties to Palestinian Authority

Tareq Salahi, one of the two White House state dinner crashers who’ve made international news over their charade, has ties to the Palestinian Authority. In fact, he serves as a board member for the American Task Force on Palestine, a lobbying group with established ties to the government of Mahmoud Abbas.

As TalkingPointsMemo reports, however, the scrubbing has begun. The group has already erased his profile from their website. You can find a screengrab of the profile here and Google cache of the same here. His profile read:

Tareq Salahi is the CEO and Owner of the Oasis Winery in Hume,Virginia. He is also founder and President of Oasis Limousines & Wine Country Tours, President of Oasis Yachts & Wine Tasting Cruises, and the founder and President of the Blue Ridge Wine Way. Oasis Winery was one of the first United States wineries to be added to the elite listing of the Top 10 Sparkling Wines & Champagnes in the World by the Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

Mr. Salahi travels the world as the Team Captain for the United States Polo Team and represents both the United States and Palestine on his diplomatic polo tours. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society named Mr. Salahi their 2002 National Man of the Year. He is a board member of the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid Atlantic, an Honorary Chairman of the Smithsonian Associates, and Founding Contributing Member of the Virginia Regional Therapeutic Center. He also devotes his time to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, St. Jude?s Children Research Hospital, the American Cancer Society, Meadow Outdoor Foundation/Virginia Gold Cup, British Forces Foundation, MADD & Charity Polo Matches throughout the United States and the United Kingdom.

Mr. Salahi graduated from University of California at Davis with a Bachelorof Science in Enology and Business Marketing Management.

How many of his claims are true isn’t clear. After all, he and his wife lied to get into an official state dinner honoring Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. They now potentially face criminal charges.

What is obviously accurate is that Mr. Salahi has ties to the Palestinian Authority. And that the group is now trying to hide that fact.
