Tsarnaev’s Jihad Motive Is Excused by Prosecutor as Not Islam

It’s been mostly a good couple weeks regarding assimilation instruction for Muslim immigrants.

In Boston, the jihad mass murderer Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found guilty and sentenced to death by the jury. That verdict is a fine lesson for immigrant Muslims that even liberal Boston will execute a man if he goes full jihad murder on the public. The city as a whole is not big on the death penalty, but made an exception for the Islam monster in their midst.

Below, in 2013, the Muslim immigrant Tsarnaev brothers set off two bombs at the Boston Marathon, killing three and seriously injuring 264 including 14 persons who lost limbs.

Likewise, when two Muslims bent on mass murder of infidels attacked the cartoon contest in Garland Texas, a local cop shot both dead with his service revolver. They needed killin’, as is said in Texas.

So Muslim newbies should understand that America is not Sweden. We traditional folks like our First and Second Amendments. There are plenty of other places to live that are not so strong on free speech rights. In fact, many Muslims think America is mean and Islamophobic. In that case, they should live somewhere else, where free speech is not treasured so much. Flights leave daily.

But on the negative side, there are still ignoramuses who claim that Islamic jihad has nothing to do with Islam. Back to Tsarnaev, one of the the successful prosecutors felt she had to apologize for getting a guilty verdict. As part of the post-trial press conference, U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz remarked, “Make no mistake, the defendant claimed to be acting on behalf of all Muslims — this was not a religious crime, and it certainly does not not reflect on true Muslim beliefs. It was a political crime designed to intimidate and to coerce the United States.”

Is Carmen Ortiz an Islam scholar in addition to her legal expertise? Has she read the Koran, the Hadith, the Surahs or the Reliance of the Traveller?

These self-appointed liberal experts on Islam as the “religion of peace” should pipe down because they know nothing. The Koran has more than 100 verses urging muslims to commit violence against non-believers.

Sebastian Gorka appeared on Fox News this morning to refute Ortiz’ silliness. He was an expert witness for the prosecution during the Tsarnaev trial.

GORKA: [Tsarnaev] is a person who had more than 2000 pages of jihadist literature, videos, audiotapes on his hard drive which has been disclosed in court, and also the real smoking gun is the note that you’ve mentioned that he wrote in the boat just before he was captured that is purely about holy war and nothing else.

TUCKER CARLSON: So why is it that the left, this prosecutor’s hardly the first person — the President has done the same thing repeatedly — so intent on lecturing the rest of us that what is obvious, what we can see before our very eyes is somehow not true, and none of this has anything to do with radical Islam. Why are they intent on spreading that propaganda?

GORKA: They’ve made an ideological decision here in the administration several years ago to make the assertion that jihad, whether it’s al Qaeda, the Boston bombing, 9/11, the beheadings by ISIS — none of that has anything to do with religion. This is an ideological decision. They’ve said it’s about root causes quote unquote is the phrase they use. It’s about poverty, it’s about unemployment. Remember the famous quote from the State Department from the deputy spokeswoman about jobs for jihadis. This is an ideological decision that is bad for US national security.

When you have a man who writes in his notes, “We look down the barrel of your gun and we see heaven; I’m jealous of my brother because I want to be a shahid too, a martyr,” then you’re just closing your eyes to reality and it makes it very very hard.

CARLSON: It’s also bizarre that they’re doing PR for radical Islam because of course if there’s one group that radical Muslims probably despise most I would say the secular left. If they ever took power, they’d be the first to go. Why are they defending these people?

GORKA: I think you’re absolutely right. If they ever took over, the first people up against the wall would be secular liberals. Why are they doing it? Because they have to. If you don’t believe in religion, if you see yourself as more sophisticated than that you cannot simply understand a jihadi warrior, so I don’t think they have the mental wherewithal to get out of their little box and understand there are people out there who want to kill you for God.

Somali Immigrant Indicted on Terror Charges

A Muslim residing in Columbus traveled to Syria and trained with the Al Nusra Front, who then returned to the US with plans to kill Americans. That man, Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud, was arrested February 21 upon his return from the MIddle East. On Thursday, an indictment was filed which said he aimed to murder police or members of the US military.

A local news report from March after the arrest reveals the “community” from which the jihadist sprung. In it, a Somali immigrant leader vows to fight back against the stigma of terror against them. Presumably he hopes that Columbus has forgotten about Nuradin Abdi, another Somali jihadist from the city who was convicted of a plot to bomb a shopping center in 2002.

AbdirahmanSheikMohamudSyriaJihad

Naturally, many reports called the perp an “Ohio man” rather than mentioning his background as an immigrant from Somalia.

Also predictable is the fact that no media outlet will question the government’s policy of admitting thousands of likely enemies yearly in the form of Muslim immigrants. Somalis are among the most dangerous and hostile, yet they are being welcomed into the US at a rate of 800 per month.

Ohio man allegedly plotted attack in U.S. after traveling to Syria, CBS News, April 16, 2015

A federal grand jury has charged a Columbus, Ohio man, Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud with attempting to provide and providing material support to terrorists, attempting to provide and providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and making false statements to the FBI, CBS News’ Paula Reid reports.

The three-count indictment was filed Thursday in the Southern District of Ohio. The case is notable because Mohamud, 23, actually went to Syria and returned to conduct attacks, Reid reports. Most “aspiring jihadists” don’t leave the country.

According to court documents, Mohamud is a naturalized U.S. citizen and was able to obtain a U.S. passport. In April 2014 he left the U.S. on a one-way plane ticket to Greece. During his layover in Istanbul, he left the airport and completed pre-arranged plans to travel to Syria. Continue reading this article

Islam Critic: Allowing Michiganistan to Develop in America Would Be Unwise

Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been writing opinion pieces as part of the rollout publicity for her new book “Heretic: Why Islam Needs a Reformation Now”. A couple days ago she wrote in the Wall Street Journal about dangerous Islamic prison ministries that convert violent men into Muslims with an excuse to kill.

She is also warning about a potential “Michiganistan” in the United States, just as Britain’s main city is now sometimes called Londonistan to describe the negative effects of Muslim immigration.

Below, in 2009, crowds of Muslims assembled in the American capital to perform the up-butt salute and yell Allahu Ackbar.

It’s true that under Obama, Muslim immigration has been on the uptick, with relaxed standards for Islamics mandated by the White House despite the national security threat. Among refugees these days, Arabic is the top language spoken.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s warning is well taken, but her solution is idiotic. As an immigrant, she has “no objection to other people coming to America to seek a better life” but that naivete won’t work when Muslim newbies come packed with a poisonous ideology of death. Their holy book is a murder manual that includes more than one hundred verses urging believers to slay the infidels. Of course not all Muslims are active headchoppers, but the dormant commandments of violence may surface in persons who appear assimilated but then revert to type. One example was Shirwa Ahmed, an immigrant who graduated from a Minneapolis high school and later returned to Somalia to blow up 30 people and himself in Mogadishu.

Another problem is the Islamic doctrine of taquiyya, which says that lying for Islam is acceptable and even desirable. So authorities cannot interview potential Muslim immigrants and be assured of truthful replies about their intentions.

Finally, Muslims have a 1400-year history of conquest against infidels. They make no secret of their plans for a global caliphate under Islamic law. The author notes that the “Muslim population of the United States is set to increase from around 2.6 million today to 6.2 million in 2030″ — how can that possibly be advantageous for America? It is a profound danger, given Muslims’ history and beliefs. The idea that some program of effective assimilation could be designed that can protect us from a self-inflicted catastrophe is pure fantasy.

Hirsi Ali: Beware of Michiganistan, By Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Time Magazine, April 1, 2015

Since the massacre at the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in January, the U.S. media has understandably devoted attention to the problem of radical Islam in Europe. The fact has been widely reported that thousands of European Union citizens have traveled to Iraq and Syria to join the self-styled Islamic State. Almost as much coverage has been given to stories of French Jews emigrating to Israel. And there have been numerous articles about Michel Houellebecq’s diabolically timed novel Soumission, which imagines France in 2022 with a Muslim president introducing sharia law and being fawned over by the Parisian establishment.

The implication of many of these articles is: “How utterly terrifying. Thank heavens it couldn’t happen here.”

True, there are no American equivalents of the alarmist books about Europe with titles like Eurabia or Londonistan. Apparently it is not quite time to warn about the “United States of Sharia” or “Michiganistan.” But are we underestimating the speed with which this country could develop substantial and influential populations of Islamic extremists? A growing, if still small number of cases like that of Abdi Nur — the 20-year-old student who left south Minneapolis to join IS last year — suggests we may be.

Mainly as a result of postwar migrations, there are now more than 20 million Muslims living in the European Union. In France – where accurate census data on religious affiliation are not collected – the Muslim share of the population is now estimated at between 7 and 8 percent. That is an order of magnitude larger than the current Muslim share of the U.S. population.

Yet, as the European experience shows, demographic change can happen rapidly, as a consequence of migration patterns, differentials in birth rates and – in the case of religious affiliation – rates of conversion and apostasy. In 1990 Europe (the whole continent minus Russia) had a Muslim population of 16 million. It had nearly doubled by 2010. It will be 40 million by 2030.

According to estimates by the Pew Research Center, the Muslim population of the United States is set to increase from around 2.6 million today to 6.2 million in 2030, mainly as a result of immigration, as well as above-average birth rates. Although in relative terms this will still represent less than 2 percent of the total U.S. population (1.7 percent, to be precise, compared with around 0.8 percent today), in absolute terms that will be a larger population than in any West European country except France. Between now and 2030, the Muslim population of the United States will be growing faster than that of any EU member state (with two exceptions where the absolute numbers are tiny: Ireland and Finland). The annual growth rate will be more than double that of France.

As an immigrant of Somali origin, I have no objection to other people coming to America to seek a better life for themselves and their families. My concern is with the attitudes many of these new Muslim Americans will bring with them – and with our capacity for changing those attitudes. Continue reading this article

Minnesota: Antagonistic Somali Population Is Recognized As a Threat

Thank you, Al Shabaab jihadists, for reminding America that our government has admitted many thousands of Somali refugees and immigrants, some number of whom are hostile to everything we value. That reminder consisted of a call from the African terrorists for Somalis residing in this country to attack the infidels in their hated mega-shopping center, the Mall of America near Minneapolis. Al Shabaab would love to generate headchopping for Allah on American soil.

The Somalis have been all kinds of trouble for years with their gangster behavior, boys beating people up for fun, racist attacks against white Americans , difficulty in assimilation and endless demands for special treatment.

Despite the tribe being a total failure of resettlement, Washington has continued to import thousands yearly to the point where more than 100,000 of Somalis now reside in the United States. Where’s the accountability for willfully importing enemies? Where’s the Off switch?

But a terror threat to shopping got the attention of authorities, because just a few attacks on wide open malls would put the big chill on people going to stores. Many brick and mortar businesses have already been battered by internet shopping and people becoming afraid to go to shopping centers would be a huge blow to retail.

So now the important people in the Chamber of Commerce are shocked, shocked that terror might happen in their shopping establishments.

The Washington Times did a front-page story on Wednesday, sketching out the big picture of Somali diversity.

Feds’ relocation of Somali refugees stresses Minn. welfare, raises terror fears, Washington Times, February 24, 2015

The State Department has helped to relocate tens of thousands of refugees from the war-torn African nation of Somalia to Minnesota, where they can take advantage of some of America’s most generous welfare and charity programs.

But the effort is having the unintended consequence of creating an enclave of immigrants with high unemployment that is both stressing the state’s safety net and creating a rich pool of potential recruiting targets for Islamist terror groups.

In the fiscal year that ended in September, Minnesota welcomed 1,118 Somali refugees arriving directly from Africa, most of them without family ties to the state, according to State Department statistics. Overall, more than 30,000 Somalis live in the midwestern state comprising the nation’s largest concentration of Somali immigrants, according to U.S. Census data.

Many of the refugees settle near the Twin Cities, with Minneapolis being dubbed “Little Mogadishu” after the capital of Somalia.

This population is also being targeted by Islamist terror organizations like the Islamic State and al-Shabab, a Somalia-based group with links to al Qaeda, according to U.S. officials.

Among Minnesota-based Somali-Americans, American converts to Islam or Somali refugees, there have been numerous convictions for various levels of collaboration with Islamist terror groups, plus reports of fighting with al-Shabab or other Islamist groups.

On Sunday, al-Shabab made a propaganda video warning of an attack on shopping malls around the world, including the Mall of America in Minnesota. Al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the terror attack on the Westgate shopping mall in Kenya two years ago, which left 67 dead.

“We have definitely seen targeted terror recruitment videos, videos aimed and targeted directly at the youth here in Minnesota primarily within the Somali community,” said Kyle Loven, an FBI spokesman in Minneapolis. “They’re going after disaffected youth — those who are isolated. We can’t get into specifics, but we’ve been involved in major investigations since 2007 and continue to be.” Continue reading this article

Fort Hood Jihad Victims Get Overdue Benefits and Recognition

Thank you, Congress, for fixing a terrible injustice from the Pentagon that has gone on too long. Last year’s National Defense Authorization Act redefined the category of who was eligible to receive a Purple Heart and the associated benefits. Now the service personnel who were shot by the self-described “Soldier of Allah” Nidal Hasan can get the lifelong medical treatment that some really need.

Thirteen were killed (pictured below) and more then 30 wounded in the jihad attack that occurred on the Fort Hood military base November 5, 2009. The shooter, Nidal Malik Hasan, was an Army psychiatrist who was been sending behavioral signals for years that he was a “ticking time bomb” who preferred Sharia to the Constitution.

Sergeant Alonzo Lunsford was shot seven times by Hasan and appeared on Fox News Saturday morning, remarking, “As service members, we put our life on the line so that we can live free in life with the pursuit of happiness, but to be treated the way we were treated in the aftermath, that’s just not right. But we’re trained to be focused, disciplined with the result that we won this battle.”

The change of status for the victims is a small victory against the Obama administration that has insisted that the mass murder was “workplace violence” despite the Allahu Ackbar shrieks of Hasan (a son of Palestinian immigrants) as he shot down the unarmed soldiers.

Sadly, the top Pentagon officials have gone along with the Obama strategy of protecting Muslims.

In 2009, the Army Chief of Staff George Casey remained a great booster of diversity despite the carnage his troops suffered just a few days before:

Army Chief Concerned for Muslim Troops, New York Times, November 8, 2009

General George Casey Jr. [pictured], the Army chief of staff, said on Sunday that he was concerned that speculation about the religious beliefs of Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, accused of killing 12 fellow soldiers and one civilian and wounding dozens of others in a shooting rampage at Fort Hood, could “cause a backlash against some of our Muslim soldiers.”

“I’ve asked our Army leaders to be on the lookout for that,” General Casey said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union. “It would be a shame — as great a tragedy as this was — it would be a shame if our diversity became a casualty as well.”

General Casey, who was appeared on three Sunday news programs, used almost the same language during an interview on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” an indication of the Army’s effort to ward off bias against the more than 3,000 Muslims in its ranks.

“A diverse Army gives us strength,” General Casey, who visited Fort Hood Friday, said on “This Week.”

Along that line, the Pentagon’s own report in 2011 of the mass murder was a shameful whitewash based on the “workplace violence” meme.

Fortunately, the Senate Homeland Security Committee, chaired by Joe Lieberman, found a different conclusion later that year: Senate Report: Fort Hood Massacre Was Preventable.

Senator Lieberman stated, “…our investigation found that employees of the Department of Defense and the FBI had compelling evidence of Nidal Hasan’s growing embrace of violent Islamist extremism in the years before the attack should have caused them to discharge him from the U.S. military and make him the subject of an aggressive counter-terrorism investigation.”

Has the military learned anything from this terrible jihad attack on the homeland, in one of their own bases? Maybe. But the administration is sticking to its policies of support for Islam despite its 1400 years of mayhem and conquest.

At least the For Hood victims are getting a little justice at a late date, no thanks to the Pentagon. The jihad massacre shows that not only is Muslim immigration a very bad idea, but admitting Muslims to our military as soldiers is even worse.

Post shooting victims to get Purple Hearts, Killeen Daily Herald, February 7, 2015

FORT HOOD — Victims of the 2009 post shooting will finally get Purple Hearts, the Army announced Friday.

“This is a long time coming. It’s a day we’re going to celebrate,” said U.S. Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, during a news conference Friday outside Fort Hood’s main gate.

A policy change to the National Defense Authorization Act, signed into law Dec. 19, deems service members who are victims of an attack that was inspired or motivated by a U.S. State Department-designated foreign terrorist organization eligible to receive the Purple Heart Medal.

The provision is retroactively effective as of Sept. 11, 2001.

“We awarded it on 9/11 to the people attacked at the Pentagon. That, in my opinion, set the precedent that you don’t have to be on the battlefield,” Carter said.

Secretary of the Army John McHugh said Friday he approved awarding the Purple Heart and its civilian counterpart, the Secretary of Defense Medal for the Defense of Freedom, to victims of the Nov. 5, 2009, shooting at Fort Hood, following the change in the medals’ eligibility criteria mandated by Congress. Thirteen people were killed and more than 30 wounded in the attack by Nidal Hasan, who was convicted in August 2013, of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder.

Murder of Argentine Prosecutor Alberto Nisman Is a Warning about Iran

Americans should pay attention to the likely murder of special prosecutor Alberto Nisman in Argentina. There is more to the case than the investigation of a 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires that killed 85. The evidence leads to the involvement of Iran in jihadist attacks then and now.

The Buenos Aires terror attack in 1994 looked like a small preview of New York City in 2001.

The death occurred just hours before Nisman was set to appear in front of a parliamentary committee to testify about the Argentine government’s complicity in covering up Iran’s role in the 1994 attack in return for a favorable oil deal, among other things.

Claudia Rosett appeared on Fox News on Thursday to explain the background of Nisman’s findings, with a warning about how Iran’s terror network extends to the United States today.

CLAUDIA ROSETT: One of his warnings was that they infiltrate using agents sent as taxi drivers, as students, as diplomats, as businessmen, and they operate under those covers for years, but they are ready when Iran decides to execute an attack. And the New York City Police Department former head of intelligence testified in 2013 to Congress that they have found Iranian diplomats conducting what looked like hostile reconnaissance surveillance on New York City on more than half a dozen occasions over the past 12 years, including subway tracks, train tracks at Grand Central, the Wall Street heliport.

In other words, Alberto Nisman’s warning was not only a case about a long ago bombing in Argentina; it was a warning about terror attacks in the making today.

Keep this goal in mind as the Obama administration bends over backwards to get a nuclear treaty deal with Iran, which is a dangerous appeasement of a tireless enemy. Recent satellite photos have been reported showing new Iranian missiles capable of sending a warhead “far beyond Europe” yet Obama thinks the mullahs can be trusted not to nuke us when they are able.

In Rosett’s detailed Forbes article on Tuesday, she quoted Nisman’s explanation of how Iranians were sent essentially as sleeper agents to Argentina, told to blend in as ordinary immigrants until a time when they were needed to “export the Islamic revolution.”

Alberto Nisman’s Warning About Iran, By Claudia Rosett, Forbes, January 20, 2015

Beyond puzzling over the circumstances, is there any response the U.S. can make to the sudden death this past weekend of Argentine special prosecutor Alberto Nisman?

Nisman spent the past decade seeking justice for the victims of the 1994 terrorist bombing of a Buenos Aires Jewish community center, which killed 85 people and wounded many more. Nisman compiled a massive case, accusing Iran and its Lebanese terrorist affiliate, Hezbollah, of the attack. He indicted a member of Hezbollah and a number of former high-ranking Iranians officials. And he found himself increasingly at cross-purposes with the machinations of Argentina’s President Cristina Kirchner.

Last week, Nisman filed a criminal complaint almost 300 pages long, accusing Kirchner, her foreign minister Hector Timerman, and a number of others, of orchestrating a cover-up of Iran’s responsibility for the 1994 attack. A summary of the complaint, sent out last week by Nisman’s office, accused Kirchner of secretly cutting a deal with Iran to concoct a story that would exonerate Iran and its fugitives from the 1994 bombing, thus opening the way for Argentina to trade grain for Iranian oil, at the cost of “sacrificing a lengthy and legitimate quest for justice.”

Nisman was due to testify Monday to Argentina’s Congress about his allegations. He never made it. On the eve of his testimony, the 51-year-old Nisman was found dead in his Buenos Aires apartment, shot in the head.

Argentine officials swiftly declared that Nisman’s death looked like suicide. There’s plenty of skepticism about that. But with the case under Argentine jurisdiction, there may be little that Americans watching from afar can do. It is telling, perhaps, that even when Nisman was alive, the U.S. couldn’t do much on his behalf. In 2013, U.S. lawmakers invited Nisman to come to Washington, to testify about his findings at a House hearing on “Threat to the Homeland: Iran’s extending influence in the Western Hemishere.” Nisman wanted to go testify. But Argentina’s chief public prosecutor denied him permission, on grounds that it had nothing to do with the mission of the Argentine attorney general’s office.

At the hearing, panel chairman Rep. Jeff Duncan expressed his regret that Nisman could not come. Duncan noted that based on information that omitted Nisman’s findings, the State Department had recently reported that Iranian influence in Latin America and the Caribbean was “waning.” Duncan added: “In stark contrast to the State Department’s assessment, Nisman’s investigation revealed that Iran has infiltrated for decades large regions of Latin America through the establishment of clandestine intelligence stations and is ready to exploit its position to ‘execute terrorist attacks when the Iranian regime decides to do so.’ “

What America can do — and should do — is pay much closer heed to Nisman’s urgent warnings. For years, while laboring at an investigation that amassed more than a million pages of documents, he sounded the alarm over Iranian terror networks which he found extended way beyond Argentina — and in some cases all the way to the U.S. Continue reading this article

Detroit: Middle Eastern Jihadist Bomber Found Guilty of Immigration Fraud

The recent guilty verdict in the trial of a convicted terrorist bomber for immigration fraud is another reminder of how inept the feds are at barring the entrance of dangerous people into America. Numerous war criminals have been admitted to this country because of plain sloppy investigation of immigrants’ backgrounds by an unconcerned bureaucracy.

The case is hardly a confidence builder for the idea that the government could responsibly handle an amnesty for millions of lawbreaking foreigners that would still protect public safety.

In addition, the Obama administration has ordered eased immigration standards so that Syrians with limited terror ties could be admitted. The White House must think America has insufficient jihadist diversity.

Anyway, today’s criminal terrorist alien is Rasmieh Odeh (pictured), a Palestinian who was imprisoned in Israel for a bombing that killed two students in 1969. Israel released her from incarceration in a prisoner swap with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, not because she was thought to be rehabilitated. Odeh was convicted in Detroit for omitting her criminal terrorist record when she applied to enter the United States.

Despite the fact she was a known terrorist, Odeh got a job with the federal government that allowed her access to the personal information of Americans: Convicted Terrorist Bomber? No Problem Getting ObamaCare Navigator Job.

Greta van Susteren was outraged by the case and highlighted it on her Fox show in February:

Throughout the case, the pro-jihad Palestinians of Michigan showed up to protest her incarceration, making bogus excuses for her undeniable criminal act of not ticking the terrorist box on her application for immigration. The alleged victimhood of Odeh was played up in the news article by Niraj Warikoo:

Palestinian woman guilty of lying on citizenship papers, Detroit Free Press, November 10, 2014

A Detroit jury today found a Palestinian immigrant guilty of not disclosing that she had been convicted in a 1969 Israel bombing when she was applying for U.S. citizenship.

Rasmieh Odeh, 67, was accused by prosecutors of being a terrorist who killed Israelis in 1969 and then lied about it when trying to become a U.S. citizen. Odeh used to live in Michigan and is now in Chicago, where she works for the Arab American Action Network. She was not charged with any terrorism crime, but with immigration violations.

Odeh could face up to ten years in prison for her conviction and be stripped of her U.S. citizenship. After the verdict, Odeh said outside the courthouse: “We have to bring the justice together..I’m strong & I ask all of you to be strong…We are the strongest people, not the government…We are stronger.”

In a statement, her supporters called today’s verdict “a travesty of justice,” saying that Odeh did “not get a full and fair trial.”

The Rasmea Defense Committee claimed that “the immigration charge was nothing but a pretext to attack this icon of the Palestine liberation movement.”

They said Odeh’s attorneys will appeal the decision.

But a jury agreed today with federal prosecutors who said that Odeh checked “no” on immigration and citizenship forms she filled out in Detroit when asked whether she had ever been convicted of a crime. Odeh concedes that she was convicted in Israel, but maintains that she was forced to confess after being tortured. She also claims that she thought the questions on the forms referred only to convictions in the U.S.

The trial has drawn national attention, with up to 100 protesters rallying outside the courthouse every day last week and today. Rallies also have been held in Florida, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Illinois. Odeh, associate director of the Arab American Action Network in Chicago, is being supported by a network of pro-Palestinian groups, which have launched online campaigns on Twitter and Facebook to bring attention to her cause. The group that she works for is part of the Dearborn-based National Network for Arab American Communities. Continue reading this article

Minnesota Somalis Leave to Join ISIS for Jihad

It’s not exactly news that young Somali men are trooping over to Islam territory to kill infidels and other Muslims not deemed sufficiently pure by the jihadists with guns. Starting around 2007, a couple dozen Somalis returned to their homeland to pursue jihad. In 2008, Shirwa Ahmed, an immigrant who graduated from Minneapolis’ Roosevelt High School, became the first suicide bomber from the US in Somalia when he blew up dozens in Mogadishu.

In the first wave, the Somalis from America joined al-Shabaab, the local jihadists in Somalia, to get on with their stoning and headchopping.

Styles change however, and now the cool killers are the ISIS bunch that performs Islamic beheading ultraviolence and then broadcasts it online using social media.

Below, American journalist James Foley was beheaded in August and the video was seen around the world, to the delight of Allah’s gangsters and aspiring psycho-killers.

Anyway, jihad investigator Eric Stakelbeck paid a recent visit to Minneapolis to see how the local Somali urge to kill infidels is playing out. Increasing numbers of Somalis are leaving town to join ISIS so it’s clear that efforts of authorities to dissuade them have not been successful.

Despite all the trouble that Somali newbies cause and their clear national security threat, Washington continues to import them as if they were the best-assimilating immigrants on earth. For example, 8,278 Somalis were admitted as refugees in FY 2014.

ISIS in America: Radicalized in the Heartland, CBN News, By Erick Stakelbeck, October 27, 2014

MINNEAPOLIS — Islamic State has engaged in a reign of terror across the Middle East, raping, pillaging, and beheading its way to a new caliphate.

Now a growing number of U.S. citizens are leaving America to join the brutal ISIS army. These recruits are being radicalized on U.S. soil and they may eventually return home.

It’s hard to imagine America’s heartland as a breeding ground for terrorism. Yet when news emerged that two U.S. citizens had been killed in Syria fighting alongside ISIS, the path led back to, of all places, Minnesota.

The two men were part of a growing number of young Muslims from Minneapolis and St. Paul who have answered the call of jihad (“holy” war).

At least a dozen young Muslims from the Twin Cities area have left their homes to travel to the Middle East and join ISIS. Some of them worshipped at the al-Farooq Mosque in a quiet suburb of Minneapolis.

An Egyptian-American man allegedly recruited young Somali Muslims from the mosque and helped send them to Syria.

Mosque officials say they banned Amir Meshal earlier this year when they learned he was preaching jihad. The suspected terror recruiter remains at large.

“There is an organization that makes this happen,” former sheriff Bob Fletcher told CBN News. “But usually there is one principal person that I call ‘the Guide’ that can take this person in this ideological state and guide them to Syria or wherever it might be.” Continue reading this article

Peter Brimelow Appears on Canada's SunTV to Discuss Out-of-Control Immigration

Has any conservative talking head on Fox News ever suggested that Muslim immigration be halted? If so, I never saw it. By comparison, SunTV’s Michael Coren (who has lived in the Middle East) asked that politically incorrect question generally to the audience and directly to VDARE.com’s Peter Brimelow.

The result was a discussion about multiculturalism, cultural disintegration and the intention of the elites to “elect (import) a new people” more to their liking.

Coren observed, “Many people are saying look at the countries of origin of potential immigrants. And if these countries are used to sharia law and Islamic triumphalism, maybe they can’t adapt to United States or Canada or Europe.”

Brimelow responded, “In the 1920’s the Americans imposed an immigration law that established a national origins system that discriminated in favor of people who came from the place most Americans had come. In 1960’s they decided it was very bad and discriminatory and they abolished it. What subsequent experience has shown is national origins actually do matter, in all kinds of ways, not just shooting soldiers, but also in academic performance and so on. People from different counties do differently… The interesting thing about this case is that the Muslim community in Canada has reached a critical mass where it actually refuses to assimilate… there’s a certain critical mass where you see reverse assimilation taking place.”

Below is one example of many where unwise immigration brought death to Americans: the Boston Marathon was bombed by two Muslim brothers whose family became immigrants using a bogus asylum claim. The bombs killed three and seriously injured 264 including 14 who lost limbs.

Here’s another recent item with Coren, interviewing security expert David Harris, where the focus is on how the police are reaching the limits of staff who can keep track of the hostile Muslims thought to be terror threats. Harris recommends immigration to Canada be reduced to a manageable few tens of thousands annually.

Portland Terror Trial Outcome: Somali Immigrant Sentenced to 30 Years for Christmas Bomb Plot

In 2010, Oregon-residing Mohamed Mohamud (a naturalized citizen born in Somalia) planned to mass murder Americans at a Portland Christmas tree-lighting ceremony where typically hundreds of families show up for the festivities. He rang his cell-phone twice, thinking a huge bomb would go off, but it was a fake set up by the FBI to take out the would-be killer.

Mohamud was sentenced on Wednesday to 30 years prison time, despite the fact that the prosecutor recommended 40 years.

Interestingly, the case began when his father contacted the FBI, as noted in the video below, about his concerns that his son was becoming drawn to jihad.

Mohamud (pictured) is quite a piece of work, having decided in high school that he didn’t like Americans and wanted to pursue jihad so he could kill lots of infidels. When a supposed confederate remarked that the Christmas event would include many children, Mohamud responded, “Yeah, I mean, that’s what I’m looking for.”

But now he’s all sorry, apologizing to the Muslim community for making them look bad.

And despite many cases like this one that illustrates Somalis being a top diversity failure in this country given their crime and terrorism, Washington continues to admit them into American communities, including 8,278 Somali refugees in FY 2014.

PORTLAND – Mohamed Mohamud, the young Somali American convicted of trying to bomb Portland’s downtown square while it was filled with holiday cheer, was sentenced Wednesday to 30 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors recommended a 40-year sentence for the 23-year-old. The defense asked for 10 years.

He was arrested Nov. 26, 2010, after pressing a keypad button on a cellphone that he believed would trigger a bomb where thousands of people gathered for the annual lighting of a Christmas tree.

“I want to apologize to everyone in the community and everybody who was there,” Mohamed Mohamud said during his sentencing for the attempted bomb plot.

He admitted what he did was terribly wrong and apologized to the Muslim community for bringing shame to their religion.

U.S. District Court Judge Garr King said the sentence was necessary due to the seriousness of the crime and to deter others who might consider similar acts. Continue reading this article

Geert Wilders Reminds Dutch Parliament that Islam Is Still a Threat

In the early 1930s, Winston Churchill warned against the coming threat of Hitler, German re-armament and the Nazi party. Today’s prescient politician with an eye on future danger is a member of the Dutch Parliament, Geert Wilders, who has been alerting the West about hostile Islam for years.

One action that got Wilders in trouble (specifically a trial for committing free speech) was producing a 15-minute documentary film, Fitna, that matched verses from the Koran with acts of terror:

He recently reiterated his arguments against Muslim immigration to his colleagues:

Geert Wilders Speech before Dutch Parliament, September 4, 2014

Madam Speaker, actually I was expecting flowers from you. I am celebrating an anniversary these days. Exactly ten years and two days ago, I left a party whose name I cannot immediately remember. During these ten years and two days. I have been much criticized. Most importantly for always saying the same thing.

My critics are right. Indeed, my message had been the same during all these years. And today, I will repeat the same message about Islam again. For the umpteenth time. As I have been doing for ten years and two days.

I have been vilified for my film Fitna. And not just vilified, but even prosecuted. Madam Speaker, while not so many years ago, everyone refused to broadcast my film Fitna, we can today watch Fitna 2, 3, 4 and 5 daily on our television screens. It is not a clash of civilizations that is going on, but a clash between barbarism and civilization.

The Netherlands has become the victim of Islam because the political elite looked away. Here, in these room, they are all present, here and also in the Cabinet, all these people who looked away. Every warning was ignored.

As a result, also in our country today, Christians are being told: “We want to murder you all”. Jews receive death threats. Swastika flags at demonstrations, stones go through windows, molotov cocktails, Hitler salutes are being made, macabre black ISIS flags wave in the wind, we hear cries, such as “Fck the Talmud”, on the central square in Amsterdam.

Indeed, Madam Speaker, this Summer, Islam came to us.

In all naivety, Deputy Prime Minister Asscher states that there is an “urgent demand” from Muslims to “crack down” on this phenomenon. Last Friday, in its letter to Parliament, the Cabinet wrote that jihadists are hardly significant. They are called a “sect”, a “small” group.

This is what those who look away wish, these deniers of the painful truth for 10 years and two days, the ostrich brigade Rutte 2.

But the reality is different. According to a study, 73% of all Moroccans and Turks in the Netherlands are of the opinion that those who go to Syria to fight in the jihad are “heroes”. People whom they admire.

And this is not a new phenomenon. Thirteen years ago, 3,000 people died in the attacks of 9/11. We remember the images of burning people jumping from the twin towers. Then, also, three-quarters of the Muslims in the Netherlands condoned this atrocity. That is not a few Muslims, but hundreds of thousands of Muslims in the Netherlands condoning terrorism and saying jihadists are heroes. I do not make this up. It has been investigated. It is a ticking time bomb. Continue reading this article

Middle East Jihadist Plans New York City Do-Over

CBN’s terror analyst Erick Stakelbeck reminds us that the jihad juggernaut in the Middle East does not want to remain there. Allah’s gangsters still hope to return to America to finish the job they started in 9/11, as shown by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s remark to US troops when released from prison, “I’ll see you guys in New York.”

A new danger arising out of the Middle East wars is that jihadists with passports from Europe and America are being trained as head-choppy Soldiers of Allah.

Why does America continue to admit Muslim immigrants who are potential enemies into the country?

Even Islamics residing in the US who don’t personally murder infidels may support jihad activities through funding. On Wednesday, JihadWatch cited just such a case: Washington state Muslima suspected of funding jihadis called Boston Marathon jihad bombing a “blessing”.

How many more are there like her? Why doesn’t America welcome useful, friendly immigrants?

‘See You In New York': Jihadists’ Plans for America, CBN News, by Erick Stakelbeck, August 6, 2014

WASHINGTON — Before Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi became what many consider the world’s most powerful terrorist, he was in U.S. custody.

U.S. forces released Baghdadi from an Iraqi prison in 2009 after four years in captivity. His reported parting words to American troops? “I’ll see you guys in New York.”

Baghdadi now leads a terrorist army of some 10,000 jihadists, known variously as ISIS or the Islamic State, that has conquered vast amounts of territory in Iraq and Syria.

And his repeated threats to attack America have not gone unnoticed.

“You will have a hard time finding any senior U.S. counterterrorism or intelligence official who won’t say right now that the Islamic State, or ISIS, is the biggest threat that we’re facing at the moment,” said Matthew Levitt, director of the counterterrorism program at the Washington Institute.

Levitt, a former U.S. Treasury Department and FBI analyst, told CBN News the large influx of Western Muslims into ISIS’s ranks — from places like Britain, France, and Denmark — poses a unique danger.

According to some estimates, up to 3,000 Western Muslims have traveled to Syria to join the jihad.

“They are recruiting a very large number and attracting, really, a very large number of foreigners, including Americans,” Levitt told CBN News. “At least 100 or so have gone to fight, some with ISIS, some with Jabhat al Nusra in Syria.”

“And also Europeans,” he added, “and many of the Europeans that are being recruited are from European countries that have visa waiver programs with the United States.” Continue reading this article
