Colorado Muslim arrested on terrorism charges

via Colorado man arrested on terrorism charges – KansasCity.com.

AURORA, Colo. — The FBI arrested a refugee from Uzbekistan at Chicago’s O’Hare airport on charges that he planned to travel overseas to fight for a terrorist group and give up his life if necessary, an official said Monday.

However, there was no evidence that suspect Jamshid Muhtorov was plotting attacks inside the United States, authorities said.

Muhtorov, 35, of Aurora, Colo., was arrested Saturday by members of the FBI’s Denver and Chicago Joint Terrorism Task Forces.

Muhtorov, who goes by several other names, was indicted on charges of providing and attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. Prosecutors allege he planned to fight for the Islamic Jihad Union, which has been blamed for suicide attacks in Uzbekistan and claimed responsibility for numerous attacks against coalition forces in Afghanistan.

An FBI affidavit said the group also carried out simultaneous suicide bombings of the U.S. and Israeli embassies and a prosecutor’s office in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

Muhtorov was arrested without incident before he could board a flight to Istanbul, Turkey, said Dean Boyd, a spokesman for the U.S. Justice Department in Washington.

The FBI said Muhtorov communicated with a contact with the terror organization by email using code words, asking to be invited to the “wedding.” He also told the contact that he was “ready for any task, even with the risk of dying,” the FBI said.

In April, Muhtorov emailed the contact that an associate had sent money for a “wedding gift” and expressed willingness to help with the wedding, the FBI affidavit said. In a May email, Muhtorov said he planned to travel to Istanbul and would bring a “wedding gift,” the affidavit said.

The affidavit said the FBI intercepted phone calls last summer between Muhtorov and his wife in which they argued about travel plans to Kyrgyzstan or Turkey.

In a July phone call, Muhtorov told a young daughter he would never see her again, but “if she was a good Muslim girl, he will see her in heaven,” the FBI said.

Neighbors said Muhtorov worked as a truck driver and lived with three children and a woman. They often cooked on a barbecue grill, and two of the children – a girl about 6 years old and a boy about 4 – sometimes played outside.

Cody Bank said a white, unmarked 18-wheeler truck was often parked outside the building. He said he saw Muhtorov and his family out barbecuing once a week, but he didn’t talk to him.

Susan Benjamin, who lives nearby, said she sometimes saw a man and the two young children who lived in the apartment going for rides around the neighborhood in the cab of the truck.

Kevin Inman, whose apartment is in the same building as Muhtorov’s, said people he assumed were in law enforcement were in and out of Muhtorov’s apartment much of the day on Saturday.

If convicted, Muhtorov could face a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, and up to a $250,000 fine.

It wasn’t the first terrorism case with ties to the Denver suburb of Aurora.

Najibullah Zazi, a Denver airport shuttle driver who pleaded guilty to planning to bomb the New York City subway, also was from Aurora.

Zazi, an Afghan immigrant, bought beauty supplies in Aurora to make peroxide-based bombs. He tried to mix explosives in a hotel room in the city then drove to New York to carry out an attack just before the 2009 anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

After becoming suspicious that he was being watched by law enforcement, he abandoned the plan and returned to Colorado.

Prosecutors allege Zazi and two associates went to Afghanistan in 2008 to join the Taliban and fight U.S. soldiers. They instead were recruited by al-Qaida operatives, who gave them weapons training in their Pakistan camp and asked them to become suicide bombers, authorities say.

Zazi’s father, Mohammed Zazi, also of Aurora, was convicted in July of destroying evidence and lying to investigators to cover up his son’s plot.

  1. The religion of peace at work, don’t you just love it?
    Peace to all non-muslims who think islam is a frickin JOKE.

  2. Question: Can a Muslim be a good American (or citizen in a Western country) ?

    Kaafir, on January 21, 2012 at 12:36 PM said of recent Jihad attacks:

    But yet the American government, to be politically correct, refuses to call it as it is, a Muslim problem. Just radical Muslim or terrorists. When are people going to see that it is the Muslims causing all the problems.

    Muslims

    This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish and send it on to anyone who will read it. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be a good American? This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:

    Theologically – no . . . Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon God of Arabia

    Religiously – no. . . Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256)(Koran)

    Scripturally – no. . . Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran.

    Geographically – no . Because his allegiance is to Mecca , to which he turns in prayer five times a day.

    Socially – no. . . Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews..

    Politically – no. . . Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America , the great Satan.

    Domestically – no. . Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34)

    Intellectually – no. . Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.

    Philosophically – no. . . Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression.. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.

    Spiritually – no. . . Because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ the Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran’s 99 excellent names.

    Therefore, after much study and deliberation….
    Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS
    in this country. – – – They obviously cannot be both
    ‘good’ Muslims and good Americans.

    Call it what you wish, it’s still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future. The religious war is bigger than we know or understand.

    Can a muslim be a good soldier???

    Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, opened fire at Ft. Hood and Killed 13. He is a good Muslim!!!

    Peace to all non-muslims with a brain.

    This one is as important as the one about being a good muslim. Please pass these on.

    If you want to allow sharia law into your Government then ask yourself what part or parts of the Constitution are you will to destroy to allow it?

    Sharia Law is well-documented in the 1,200 page Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law, “The Reliance of the Traveler” by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, and published in the United States by Amana Publications. The Constitution is, well, the Constitution:

    LEGISLATIVE POWERS

    US Constitution
    Article I – All legislative Powers shall be vested in the Congress.

    Sharia Law
    The source of legal rulings for all acts of those who are morally responsible is Allah. (a1.1) It is not a sin to comply with man-made laws that require buying auto insurance or having a photo ID because “the authorities are responsible for the sin, not the individual forced to comply.” (w42.3 and w50.4).

    POWER TO DECLARE WAR

    US Constitution
    Section 8 – Powers of Congress include to levy taxes, to make laws, and to declare war.

    Sharia Law
    It is obligatory to obey the commands and interdictions of the caliph or his representative in everything that is lawful, even if he is unjust . . because the purpose of his authority is Islamic unity, which could not be realized if obeying him were not obligatory. (o25.5) The caliph or his representative have the duty of undertaking jihad if their territory borders on enemy lands, of dividing the spoils of battle, and of remitting a fifth for “deserving recipients.” (o25.9(8)) Jihad is obligatory for everyone when the enemy has surrounded the Muslims. (o9.3) It is permissible in jihad to cut down the enemy’s trees and destroy their dwellings. (o9.1)

    PRESIDENT (CALIPH)

    US Constitution
    Article II, Section I — Qualifications of a President – He must be a natural born citizen, thirty-five years old, and a resident for fourteen years. The President is elected by ballot by the people (via the Electors) and shall serve for no more than 2 four-year terms.
    No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

    Sharia Law

    A caliph must be a Muslim, a non-slave, a male, of the Quraysh tribe, etc. (o25.0)

    The Caliph appoints a group to select his successor among themselves. There is no a term of office. However, the caliphate of someone who seizes power is considered valid, even though his act of usurpation is disobedience, in view of the danger from anarchy and strife that would otherwise ensue. (o25.4(3))

    REMOVAL OF GOVERNMENT OFFICERS

    US Constitution

    Section 4 – The President and all civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from office if found guilty of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.

    Sharia Law
    (No provision for removal from office.)

    LEGAL AUTHORITY

    US Constitution

    Article VI – This Constitution and the laws of the United States which shall be made under it shall be the supreme law of the land, and judges in every state shall be bound by them. Senators and Representatives, legislative officers, all executive and judicial officers both of the United States and the several states shall be bound by a Oath or Affirmation to support the Constitution.

    Sharia Law
    The source of legal rulings for all acts of those who are morally responsible is Allah. (a1.1)

    CIVIL AND RELIGIOUS RIGHTS

    US Constitution

    Amendment 1 – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press, or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for redress of grievances.

    Sharia Law

    Non-Muslims are obliged to comply with Islamic rules that pertain to the safety and indemnity of life, reputation, and property. Non-Muslims are forbidden to openly display wine or pork, recite their scriptures, or make a public display of feast days or funerals. Non-Muslims are forbidden to build new churches. A non-Muslim may not enter a mosque without permission. The protection for non-Muslims is withdrawn if a non-Muslim commits adultery with a Muslim woman or marries her, leads a Muslim away from Islam, kills a Muslim, or says anything derogatory about Allah, the Prophet, or Islam. (o11.5 through o11.10)

    US Constitution

    Amendment 2 – The right of people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

    Sharia Law

    It is a condition that someone buying weapons be of a people who are not at war with Muslims. (k1.2(f)) Enormities (sins) include selling weapons to non-Muslims who will use them against us. (w52.1(192))

    US Constitution

    Amendment 3 – No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner prescribed by law.

    Sharia Law

    (Not covered.) However, the Pact of Omar (636 AD) imposed on Christians in Syria, “We shall keep our gates wide open for passersby and travelers. We shall give board and lodging to all Muslims who pass our way for three days.”

    US Constitution

    Amendments 4 – 8 – These amendments prohibit unreasonable searches, require due process according to the law, provide for confrontation of witnesses, impose jury trial on all matters involving over $20, and prohibit excessive fines and cruel and unusual punishments. Amendment 14 provides for equal protection of the laws for all citizens.

    Sharia Law

    No testimony may be made by people who have lowly jobs, such as a street sweeper or a bath house attendant, or non-Muslim. (o24.2-3) Testimony regarding fornication or sodomy requires four male eye-witnesses to the act. (o24.9) A woman’s testimony is worth only half that of a man. (o24.10) (There is no provision for a jury trial under Sharia Law.) Cruel and unusual Islamic punishments include 1) stoning for adultery (o12.2); 2) scourging 40 lashes with hands, shoes, ends of clothes, or a whip for drunkenness (o16.3); 3) severing the right hand for theft of over $36 and the left foot for a repeat offense (o14.1); and 4) death for apostasy from Islam. (o8.2) Indemnity for accidentally killing a male Muslim is 100 camels or 4,235 grams of gold. (Current value: $144,000.) Indemnity for killing a woman is half that of a man, for killing a Jew or a Christian is one-third of the indemnity paid for a Muslim. The indemnity paid for a killing Zoroastrian is one-fifteenth of that of a Muslim. The indemnity for causing a miscarriage is one slave. (o4.9) There is no indemnity for a killing a non-Muslim at war with Muslims, an apostate, or someone sentenced to death by stoning. (o14.17) Jews and Christians are subject to a “poll tax” not less than 1 dinar (Current value: $144) per adult male per year. No maximum is stipulated. (o11.4) This is a penalty for remaining in their ancestral religion instead of embracing the “religion of truth.” (o9.8) A husband may beat a “rebellious” wife for 1) not allowing immediate sexual intercourse when he asks for it, at home, and if she can physically endure it; 2) answering him coldly; or 3) being averse when she was previously kind. (m5.1 and m10.12) The only limitation is that he may not break her bones, wound her, or cause bleeding.

    US Constitution

    Amendment 13 Slavery and involuntary servitude are abolished.

    Sharia Law

    The section on Slavery (k32.0) is not translated into English. The provisions remain in Arabic. The editor of “The Reliance of the Traveler” claims that these provisions are no longer applicable, yet they remain in there in the text of Sharia Law. Elsewhere, the manual states, “Originally the status of slave was simply the outcome of having been taken as a prisoner of war. A captive who could not buy his own freedom by means of ransom remained in the possession of the captor until he had earned his freedom by work or until he was granted liberty by his master.” (w13.1)

    US Constitution

    Amendment 21 repealed “prohibition,” thereby allowing manufacture, sale, and transport of alcoholic beverages.

    Sharia Law

    It is unlawful to sell grapes to someone who will make wine from them. (k4.9) “Allah cursed whoever drinks wine, gives it to others to drink, sells it, buys it, presses it for another, transports it, receives it, or eats its price.” Enormities (sins) include drinking wine in any form or other intoxicant, even if only a drop as in medicine; pressing out the juice to make wine or other intoxicant; carrying it for purposes of drinking, or having it carried; serving it to others or having it served; selling it; buying it; having it bought or sold; consuming proceeds from selling it; or keeping wine or other intoxicant. (o16.6 and w52.1(350-361))

    • Learn to type, spell, and construct basic sentences. Tantrums when seen among little children are generally caused by the child’s inability to state what he means.In recent times we as a nation have been asked to tolerate people like you and that toleration is fast coming to an end. You are not a man you are a tiresome bully. Go back to Muhammad Fart Oasis and do unspeakable things with the first mangy camel you come across. We will all pray for the unfortunate camel.

    • Abundantly clear kitabu. See my advice below. Since your vulgar language excludes ladies I assume you are the usual Muslim poor excuse for a man.

  4. a refugee

    which brings us back to WTH is USA taking MUSLIM refugees?
    If they are TRULY in peril FROM islam or war, let their fellow MUSLIM nations take them. Countries with laws they know and languages and lifestyle and mosques they want.
    Of course many of these are not refugees, merely USING that as entry to USA, as was to travel more freely and to have access to JIHAD networks via internet and mosques meets with USA citizen Jihadis.

    Immigration is a huge ISSUE – we do not need unskilled people who have no money and no skills- we have enough of our own and from Mexico.
