Colorado: Iraqi Muslim convicted in brutal gang rape gets 28 years

He was one of five Iraqi Muslims involved in the brutal gang rape of a 53-year old woman. via Iraqi convicted in Springs rape case sentenced

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – One of five Iraqi men who was arrested in connection to a Colorado Springs rape case has been sentenced.

Jasim [Mohammed] Ramadon was sentenced to 28 years to life in prison on April 18, 2014. He was convicted of all but one of the charges filed against him on January 21, 2014. Ramadon will be eligible for parole in 20 years.

The 53-year-old victim was attacked at the Wildridge Apartments in the 2500 block of Gold Rush drive on July 21, 2012.

On August 30, 2012, KRDO NewsChannel 13 reported that the victim told police she broke up a fight between two groups of men and then one of them invited her inside an apartment.

During their conversation, the victim said she was given what she believed was lemonade and has no recollection after that.

The woman ended up at Memorial Hospital Central with significant internal injuries, blunt force trauma and serious bodily injuries, police said.

Five Iraqi nationals were arrested in connection to the crime. An arrest affidavit obtained by KRDO NewsChannel 13 on August 15, 2012 alleged that Ramadon physically assaulted and abused the woman, and a man named Sarmad Mohammed exposed himself to her. The three other men, Ali Al Juboori, Yasir Jasim and Mustafa Sataar were accused of covering up the crimes.

 Previously:

One co-defendant, Sarmad Fadhi “Levi” Mohammed, 26, is serving 16 years to life in prison after a jury convicted him last year of placing his penis in the woman’s mouth. Three others were accused of lying to police about what they knew of the rape and ended up with misdemeanor convictions.

Colorado: Fort Collins now marked by 70-foot minaret at new mosque

“The minarets are our bayonets; the domes are our helmets. Mosques are our barracks, the believers are soldiers. This holy army guards my religion. Almighty, Our journey is our destiny, the end is martyrdom.” ~ Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan

It’s happening all across the U.S. via Muslim community invites Fort Collins to new mosque and Islamic Center | The Coloradoan

Islamic Center of Fort Collins will host an open house Saturday to introduce a new building and reintroduce the area’s Muslim community.

The 18,000-square-foot Turkish-style mosque and Islamic Center, 925 W. Lake St., opened in late 2013 as a beacon of hope and visibility to the city’s roughly 2,000-strong Muslim community. Muslims have been in Fort Collins since 1952, according to the Center’s website. The first mosque was established in March 1980.

Saturday’s festivities begin at 10 a.m. and will allow people to tour the facility — which includes hand-woven carpet from the Middle East, gender-specific wudu rooms for washing hands, feet and face before prayers, and traditional mihrab to echo prayers and sermons throughout the building, — and participate in interfaith dialog and cultural exchange.

The Islamic Center’s previous building was just more than 2,500 square feet without many external identifying features at its Peterson Street location. The new building features a 70-foot minaret and 50-foot dome, both topped with crescent moons.

To have such a building as this is just really unimaginable,” said Islamic Center member Elizabeth Siddique, 80. Siddique has been in Fort Collins since 1964 and said her family was one of the first Muslim families to stay in the area permanently.

Yep.

“I think it’s going to be, for the most part, an introduction to who we are and what we stand for,” she said.

No introduction needed.

ACLU Representing Jihad Suspect in Challenge of NSA Surveillance Program

A terror suspect is challenging the constitutionality of the National Security Agency’s warrantless surveillance program, saying in a court document filed Wednesday that spying by the federal government has gone too far.

In the motion filed in federal court in Denver with help from the American Civil Liberties Union, Jamshid Muhtorov also requested that prosecutors disclose more about how surveillance law was used in his case. Muhtorov denies the terror charges he faces.

Surveillance under current law “is exceptionally intrusive and it is conducted by executive officers who enjoy broad authority to decide whom to monitor, when and for how long,” Muhtorov argued in his motion.

“The statute that authorized the surveillance is unconstitutional,” Muhtorov said, citing constitutional provisions against unreasonable search and seizure.

The ACLU called the filing the first of its kind.

Except for similar cases here, here and here.

Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon declined to comment.

The challenge had been expected after the Justice Department in October said it intended to use information gleaned from one of the NSA’s warrantless surveillance programs against Muhtorov. It was the first time the department had made such a disclosure.

The U.S. Supreme Court has so far turned aside challenges to the law on the grounds that people who bring such lawsuits have no evidence they are being targeted.

In another case involving the government’s surveillance methods, a federal judge in a Chicago terrorism case ruled Wednesday that a defendant’s lawyers will be given access to an application prosecutors submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, established to monitor spying within in the United States. The Chicago judge called her pretrial ruling in the case of Adel Daoud a first. Daoud has denied seeking to detonate a bomb in Chicago in 2012.

In the Denver case, Muhtorov was accused in 2012 of providing material support to an Uzbek terrorist organization active in Afghanistan.

According to Wednesday’s motion, Muhtorov was targeted by the Uzbek government because of his work with human rights groups in his homeland. He fled and resettled in Aurora, Colo., in 2007, as a political refugee and became a legal permanent U.S. resident.

Muhtorov was arrested Jan. 21, 2012, in Chicago with about $2,800 in cash, two shrink-wrapped iPhones and an iPad as well as a GPS device. In March 2012, his attorney, federal public defender Brian Leedy, said at a court hearing that Muhtorov denied the allegations and had been headed to the Uzbekistan region to visit family, including a sister who remains imprisoned in that country.

Colorado: Iraqi immigrant found guilty in brutal 2012 gang rape

An update on these previous posts on the Muslim gang rape of an elderly woman in Colorado, via Iraqi immigrant found guilty in brutal 2012 rape.

A 21-year-od Iraqi immigrant was found guilty Tuesday on multiple counts of sexual assault, but innocent on one count of 1st degree assault.

Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon, also known as Jay Hendrix, was charged in the brutal rape of a Colorado Springs woman in July 2012 at a west Colorado Springs apartment complex.

Ramadon could face life in prison; he will be sentenced April 18.

Four other Iraqi immigrants were also charged in connection to the crime, which left a semiconscious woman nearly dead and bleeding internally.

Three of the four other men, all of whom, along with Ramadon, were brought to the United States after helping U.S. military personnel in Iraq, had been accused of lying to police about the rape. They ended up with misdemeanor convictions.

The other man, Sarmad Fadhi “Levi” Mohammed, 26, was convicted of placing his penis in the woman’s mouth and is serving 16 years to life in prison.

The woman apparently went to the men’s apartment in after they were involved in a fight with soldiers in the complex parking lot.

The four men told police that Ramadon had shoved his hand into the woman’s rectum, which caused the internal bleeding. As Ramadon’s trial began, the jury heard conflicting portrayals of his involvement in the crime.

Ramadon was tried as “Hendrix,” a name he took after being brought to the United States with the help of a soldier with the same last name, but spelled “Hendrex.” The soldier’s experiences giving safe harbor to Ramadon are documented in the book “A Soldier’s Promise.”

Diana West tackles the harsh reality of U.S. soldiers bringing back young Muslims to the U.S. (even if with the best of intentions) in The Aftermath of Iraq — in Colorado.

So, it seems, young Ramadon had to leave the Hendrex house because he was unable to act like a civilized human being in the presence of the wife of his great sponsor, his mentor, his life-saver. Or maybe it was that he, a Muslim boy, was unable to act like a Western-civilized human being. In other words, it may well be the case that the “difficulties” Ramadon had being in “a house run by a woman” fell within the norm of Islamic-Iraqi-civilization — within the norms set by sharia (Islamic law)…

Surely, there are other Iraq vets (A-stan, too) who took young Iraqis “under their wing,” got them out, and brought them to US towns and farms. When things don’t work out as envisioned, have they, too, lost track of their erstwhile charges as they slipped into the US population?

via Clashing portrayals in Colorado Springs trial for Iraqi immigrant accused in brutal rape.

RAMADON--JASIM-MOHAMMED-HASSIN--CSPD-SEX-ASSAULT-CASE-081412-JPG

An El Paso County jury on Wednesday heard clashing portrayals of Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon, a 21-year-old Iraqi immigrant accused of “shoving” his hand into the rectum of a semiconscious woman, causing severe internal bleeding.

Charged with multiple counts of sexual assault, Ramadon – also known as Jay Hendrix – could face up to the rest of his life in prison if convicted.

His trial, which is expected to last two weeks, comes after an 11-month delay during which the case was held up as the Colorado Supreme Court considered an evidentiary dispute between prosecutors and defense attorneys.

Charged in the July 2012 assault at a west Colorado Springs apartment complex were Ramadon and four other Iraqi immigrants, all of whom were brought to the United States with the help of military members after assisting troops in Iraq.

One co-defendant, Sarmad Fadhi “Levi” Mohammed, 26, is serving 16 years to life in prison after a jury convicted him last year of placing his penis in the woman’s mouth. Three others were accused of lying to police about what they knew of the rape and ended up with misdemeanor convictions.

During opening statements Wednesday, prosecutor Michael Allen identified Ramadon as the man who brutalized the woman – inflicting an injury so severe that doctors say she could have died without medical intervention.

He said the woman’s ordeal ended only when “the unmistakable odor of feces filled the room,” prompting Mohammed to demand that she and Ramadon leave their apartment.

But according to Ramadon’s public defenders, their client wasn’t present when the woman was injured.

While all four co-defendants lived together and looked upon each other as brothers, Ramadon was an “acquaintance” and an “outsider,” said attorney Kim Chalmers, arguing that her client became a suspect only after police allowed his four co-defendants to ride together in a car, without an officer present, on their way to be interviewed about what happened.

“Believe it or not, they came up with a story,” Chalmers said.

Prosecutors said witnesses will help tie Ramadon to the crime, including a neighbor who said Ramadon knocked on his door in the early morning hours after the assault with the bleeding woman at his side.

One of Ramadon’s co-defendants is expected to testify that he witnessed the attack and saw fecal matter on Ramadon’s hand as he withdrew it from her body, Allen said. He said the woman wasn’t drunk but has no recall of her ordeal.

Prosecutors didn’t mention a claim heard at previous court proceedings that the woman was drugged.

The woman didn’t know the men but went to their apartment after witnessing a fight between Ramadon and soldiers in the complex parking lot, prosecutors said.

Ramadon is being tried under the name Hendrix, which he adopted after being brought to the United States with the help of 1st Sgt. Daniel Hendrex, whom Ramadon helped hunt down insurgents, including members of his own family.


In December it was reported that, Colo. Supreme Court suppresses Iraqi evidence.

The Colorado Supreme Court says a judge correctly tossed evidence against an Iraqi man accused of violating a woman in a sex assault case.

Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon, who helped U.S. soldiers hunt insurgents in Iraq, was among five Iraqi men charged after a 2012 attack on an unconscious woman. He is being held on $250,000 bond pending a hearing Tuesday after his trial was delayed pending the evidence review.

The Colorado Supreme Court ruled Monday a judge correctly suppressed evidence against Ramadon after police told Ramadon he could get sent back to Iraq and possibly killed if he lied to them. Ramadon told authorities he helped the woman after the assault, but did take part.

Ramadon’s attorney did not return a phone call seeking comment.

Colorado: 8 years for woman who married Muslim terrorist, taught 6-year-old son to be jihadist

via Colorado woman who married jihadist in Ireland gets 8 years in global terror plot

A Colorado woman who found love and Islam online was sentenced to eight years in prison for supporting the work of her husband, an Algerian terror suspect.

Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, 35, got a break after helping the FBI investigate the al-Qaida-linked figure and others, including a Pennsylvania woman who called herself “Jihad Jane.”

Prosecutors sought a 10-year term, chiefly because Paulin-Ramirez took her 6-year-old son to join a terror cell in Ireland, where he was taught to be a warrior and hate non-Muslims. The boy also endured physical abuse during the four-month stay. A video played in court Wednesday showed him reciting inflammatory verses and thrusting a toy weapon as his mother, laughing, says, “Go attack the kafir,” or non-believers.

“I hope he actually forgets this, what I put him through,” Paulin-Ramirez, of Leadville, Colo., told the judge. “I didn’t want my son to think like that. I only wanted to help my son so he wouldn’t get punished.”

Paulin-Ramirez had led a troubled life before she fled to Waterford along Ireland’s southern coast in 2009 to marry Ali Charaf Damache, whom she had met online as she researched and converted to Islam.

A defense expert testified that she had a twisted view of the religion, culled from extremist postings.

Who was the defense expert? A Muslim? Was her view any different than what is taught in the Koran or the example set by Muhammad himself?

Paulin-Ramirez also came to know Colleen LaRose, who called herself “Jihad Jane” in YouTube videos and was looking for other American women to help the cause. They were sought for their Western looks and passports, which enabled them to travel more freely around the world.

Another chat-room contributor, high school honors student Mohammad Hassan Khalid of suburban Baltimore, became entangled with them. A Pakistani-American, the FBI arrested him at 17, as he was preparing to accept a prestigious college scholarship. Now 20, he remains in custody awaiting his sentence and could be deported.

LaRose, 50, of Pennsburg, Pa., was sentenced Monday to 10 years in prison for her role in the plot. She had agreed to kill Swedish artist Lars Vilks, whose drawings depicting the prophet Muhammad as a dog had offended Muslims.

Vilks has called the assassination plot “low-tech,” and LaRose never got within 300 miles of him. However, Chief U.S. District Judge Petrese B. Tucker said she didn’t doubt LaRose’s commitment.

The judge found it stunning that the two lonely women ran off to join strangers in search of a holy war.

“I, like the government, can’t get past the fact that you took your son (there),” Tucker told Paulin-Ramirez. “You don’t know where you’re going, or what you were going to face when you got there.”

And she called it “unforgiveable” that he was indoctrinated into terrorism.

The boy’s life has apparently remained difficult. He was placed with his grandmother but was removed over a 2012 abuse complaint. Her husband has since been convicted, and the boy again resides with the grandmother, according to defense evidence.

Damache, known as “Black Flag,” remains in custody in Ireland, fighting extradition on the Philadelphia indictment.

Prosecutors believe he is affiliated with al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, an al-Qaida offshoot with a presence in Algeria. The group has never attempted an attack on the United States.

However, Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Williams said that defendants like the pair sentenced this week exacerbate security fears.

“It (also) hurts the Muslim religion she claims to love so much,” Williams said of Paulin-Ramirez. “It creates fear. It creates bias.”

The Koran and Islamic texts create bias. Islam creates bias. It separates the world into two groups: Muslims (believers) and non-Muslims (kafirs). Assistant attorney’s like Williams exacerbate the problem by pretending Islam is something it’s not.


As we posted in Jihad Jamie friends with convicted terrorist Zazi, Jihad Jane; stepdad a Muslim convert:

The 6-year-old son of a Colorado nursing student who ran off to Europe to join a terrorist murder cell was brainwashed into a hate-filled Islamic fundamentalist zombie, his family said yesterday.

“He said that Christians will burn in hellfire,” the child’s grandmother, Christine Mott, told The Post. “That’s what they are teaching this baby.”

Paulin-Ramirez changed her son’s name from Christian to the Islamic name Walid after enrolling him in a fire-breathing Muslim school in Ireland.

He said they taught him how to shoot a gun,” Christine Mott said. “They taught him how to kick and fight . . .

“The boy was not allowed to associate with non-Muslim children, and he gets beat up by the Muslim kids because they know he’s not one of them,” she added.

George Mott, is himself a Muslim convert who speaks Arabic. He said that once as he talked to the boy on the phone, he could hear a Jihadi recruitment tape playing in the background talking of death to Zionists and America.

Before the boy left, he was like any other 6-year-old, George Mott said. He was into normal things like cartoons, cars and dinosaurs. “I figured him to be a paleontologist,” he said.

“He has not been in school since they left there,” George said. “He’s in an Islamic school. They’re teaching him hate.”

Colorado: Saudi Muslim convicted of sex slavery to appeal release to KSA

al-turki-2010-

via Appeal likely in Saudi man’s Colorado sex offense

A Saudi man convicted in Colorado of sexually abusing his Indonesian housekeeper and keeping her as a virtual slave will probably appeal after a judge denied his request to be released and sent home, a defense lawyer said Friday.

Another lawyer said he is considering a new legal challenge on separate grounds.

Denver attorney Hal Haddon said he has not been allowed to speak to Homaidan al-Turki since a state judge ruled Thursday he had no authority to grant his release, but Haddon said he expects his client will want to appeal.

The judge didn’t rule that it was inappropriate for al-Turki to be released on probation, only that the judge did not have the power to do so, Haddon said.

He said the ruling was devastating for al-Turki’s wife and children in Saudi Arabia.

Al-Turki, a linguist who was living and working in Colorado, was convicted in 2006 of unlawful sexual contact by use of force, false imprisonment and other counts. He was sentenced to eight years to life in prison.

He denied the allegations, saying he was a victim of anti-Muslim sentiment.

Probation would have allowed him to serve the rest of his sentence in Saudi Arabia. Saudi officials promised to enforce whatever terms Colorado imposed.

Colorado prosecutors said there was no way to ensure Saudi Arabia would carry out the sentence. They also said al-Turki was not eligible for release because he refused to participate in a required prison program for sex offenders.

Al-Turki’s lawyers said his religion prevented him from participating in the program because it would require him to look at photos of women in bathing suits or undergarments. They also said he would have to confess to the crimes, which they say he cannot do because he is challenging his conviction.

Another attorney for al-Turki, John Portman of Denver, said he is considering another challenge based on court rules that allow people whose appeals have been denied to contest convictions on several grounds, including newly discovered evidence.

Portman declined to say what grounds were being considered and when a challenge might be filed.

Last year, state prison officials denied al-Turki’s request to be transferred to Saudi custody under an international treaty.

The prisons director at the time, Tom Clements, was ready to approve the transfer but denied it after an FBI agent contacted prison officials, according to testimony during court hearings last year. The officials haven’t said why Clements changed his mind or what the FBI agent said.

About a week after the treaty transfer was denied, Clements was shot and killed. Prison officials said they investigated but found nothing linking al-Turki to the crime.

Still, prosecutors said in November that al-Turki remained a person of interest in the Clements investigation.


The Saudi slave holder is also accused of seeking another inmate’s death and already had his sentence reduced.

Colorado: Saudi slave holder accused of seeking another inmate’s death

via Colo. prisons: Evidence lacking after Saudi inmate accused of seeking another inmate’s death | Fox News.

Colorado prison officials say they didn’t find enough evidence to take action against a Saudi inmate who was accused of trying to have another inmate killed.

Officials said Tuesday that no criminal charges were filed and no internal discipline was pursued against Homaidan al-Turki (HO’-ma-don al-tur-KEE’).

Al-Turki is serving prison time after he was convicted in 2006 of sexually assaulting his housekeeper and treating her as a virtual slave when he lived in the Denver area.

Prosecutors revealed the allegation last week as al-Turki and Saudi officials asked a judge to allow al-Turki to serve his sentence in his home country. The judge hasn’t issued a decision.

Prosecutors are fighting the move.

Neither prosecutors nor al-Turki’s lawyer immediately returned calls Tuesday. Al-Turki’s lawyer has said the prison allegation was baseless.

Colorado: Senator dismisses reader concern over Islamic infiltration

A reader sent this in. It’s a response from a Colorado senator who had his concerns regarding Islamic infiltration into U.S. government dismissed by one his representatives. He posted the response in full and it’s why more people need to speak up and let politicians know they work for us, not the other way around.

___________________________________________________________________

Copy of Senator’s Response of October 18, 2013 03:14PM MST:

Dear xxxxxxx:

Thank you for contacting me regarding allegations by a few Members of Congress that Islamists have infiltrated the highest levels of the federal government.

I appreciate hearing from you. As a United States Senator, my twin responsibilities are to uphold the Constitution and to protect the American people. It is important that we do not give in on either of these important values. I am committed to ensuring that our government has the resources necessary to keep Americans safe. And I am equally committed to preserving our rights guaranteed under the Constitution.Americans’ fundamental rights to speech, privacy, and expression must be protected.

As you know, U.S. Representative Michelle Bachmann and four other members of the House Intelligence Committee recently sent letters to various federal agencies alleging that the Muslim Brotherhood may be infiltrating the U.S. government. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, including Senator John McCain and House Speaker John Boehner, denounced these unfounded allegations. The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Mike Rogers, a former FBI agent, also dismissed these allegations.

I value the input of fellow Coloradans in considering the wide variety of important issues and legislative initiatives that come before the Senate. I hope you will continue to inform me of your thoughts and concerns. For more information about my priorities as a U.S. Senator, I invite you to visit my website.

Again, thank you for contacting me.

Sincerely,

United States Senator

Please do not reply to this message. If you would like to send a message please submit a form at senate.gov/contact

Telling when a Democrat relies on three supposed Republicans to dismiss an allegation. Would this Senator have relied on any Republican opinions when the Iraq war was being debated?

The ongoing coverup may be the largest in American history.

Colorado: American Library Association teaching librarians how to push Islam

via Gilpin Library Footnotes | The Mountain-Ear

Larry Grieco, Librarian

Gilpin County

Having just returned from a two-day workshop on our new “Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys theme, Literary Reflections,” I’m enthusiastic about getting the word out, as well as introducing you to the five books in the series. Dr. Nancy Ciccone, chair of the English Department at the University of Colorado, Denver, and I are working together for the third time on a “Let’s Talk about It” series.

Nancy and I didn’t have to travel far, this time — just to the Grand Hyatt in downtown Denver — to hear project scholars develop the content, and coordinators from the American Library Association recommend effective ways to implement the project. We joined more than 75 representatives from other libraries around the country who received this “Let’s Talk About It” grant, many of whom were accompanied by their local scholars.

The series here at the Gilpin County Library will be offered beginning January 11, 2014, with the first book, “The Arabian Nights,” as the topic of discussion. This book is also known as “The Thousand and One Nights,” and was compiled during the Abbasid caliphate (750-1258), “regarded as one of the glorious periods of Muslim civilization because of its significant contributions to scientific knowledge, cultural arts, engineering and architecture, and general intellectual innovation.”

The fourth session in the “Let’s Talk About It” series, to be presented on Feb. 22, is “Dreams of Trespass: Tales of a Harem Girlhood,” written by Fatima Mernissi. This is a coming-of-age memoir “depicting traditional life in a harem in Fez (Morocco)…which explores the social boundaries that become fault lines in the debates over the borders between childhood and adulthood, public and private, and male and female.”

What every young American girl needs to learn about – life in a Muslim harem .

The propaganda is being pushed in more than 800 taxpayer funded libraries across the United States.

Find one in your town and go have some fun.

Colorado: Self-Proclaimed ‘Islamist Jihadist’ Has Police on Alert

via ‘F**k DHS’: Self-Proclaimed ‘Islamist Jihadist’ Has Colo. Police on Alert (and He Claims to be an Archangel) | TheBlaze.com.

A self-proclaimed “Islamist jihadist” had police and faith leaders on alert in Fort Collins, Colorado, over the weekend. The exact details are unclear and confounding, but church leaders have been asked to keep an eye out for an unnamed man who has purportedly made threats against both Mormons and Catholics.

The man apparently told police that these religious individuals “would be destroyed” in the next two weeks. While the individual wasn’t seen in the Fort Collins area as of Sunday and there is allegedly no immediate danger to the community, KUSA-TV reports that authorities have told faith leaders, via a memo, to keep an eye out for any odd behavior.

The high altitude or recent legal changes? Or the Koran?

Described as a white man in his early 30s, the man was contacted by police Tuesday in Steamboat Springs when an officer reportedly saw him attempting to shoot a video while driving.

Another mass-murdering white guy in Colorado said the shahadah – the Dark Night theater killer converted to Islam to justify murder spree.

al Jazeera America plans bureaus in 12 U.S. cities

The silent invasion of jihad-supporting Islamists is coming to your state. Aided and abetted by elected officials. via The first 12 Al Jazeera America bureaus – POLITICO.com.

Al Jazeera executives have been touring the country and rolling out announcements of new bureaus ahead of Al Jazeera America’s launch later this year. First it was a bureau in Chicago, today it is a bureau in Detroit. These will join Al Jazeera’s U.S. headquarters in New York and previously announced bureaus in Washington, Miami and Los Angeles, among others.

The network is planning 12 bureaus in all, with plans to add more after the launch. The network has yet to disclose the full list of bureaus — “We don’t comment on rumors. No leases have been signed anywhere,” Stan Collender, an Al Jazeera spokesperson told POLITICO — but a source at the network was kind enough to share it with POLITICO, on background.

New York

Washington

Miami

Nashville

Kincaid and Kenney have documented Al Jazeera’s anti-American propaganda and its many terrorist connections. A few highlights:

  • The Emir of Qatar, who owns Aljazeera, recently donated 400 million dollars to Hamas, a State Department designated terrorist group.
  • Film footage of captured terrorists in Iraq shows they came to kill Americans because of Al Jazeera.
  • NBC News reporter Lisa Myers said: “Why do they go [to fight in Iraq]? Saudis captured in Iraq say it’s because of pictures on Arab television network Al-Jazeera.
  • CNN reports that a document found in bin Laden’s compound after his death referred to a meeting with the Al-Jazeera bureau chief in Pakistan.
  • The new film, “Zero Dark Thirty,” mentions that the courier who eventually led the CIA to bin Laden was located in Pakistan near an Al Jazeera office in order to get the terrorist leader’s videotapes to the channel for worldwide distribution.
  • 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed… was protected by the government of Qatar, which funds Al Jazeera.
  • Father of journalist Daniel Pearl, the journalist beheaded by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, says, “Al Jazeera is the main propaganda machine of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
  • French media openly report that Qatar is supporting the Mali terrorists
  • An Al Jazeera story, “Mali: The ‘gentle’ face of al-Qaeda,” reported that the terrorists “are playing the role of humanitarians” by providing food to local people.
  • Al Jazeera supports the radical Muslim and far-left campaign to free “Lady al Qaeda” Aafia Siddiqui, currently serving a life sentence for attempted murder and wife of 9/11 planner Ammar al-Baluchi,.
  • In the U.S., the movement to free Siddiqui includes Ramsey Clark, the Workers World Party (WWP) and the Party for Socialism and Liberation.
  • Al Jazeera reporter Tayseer Allouni, was convicted as an agent of al Qaeda.

Are we going to stand for this without a *#+*&@!ing fight? More:

Please call the House Homeland Security Committee and ask that the new chairman, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), open hearings into Al-Jazeera. Call their office at 202-226-8417 and ask Chairman McCaul to investigate Al-Jazeera’s ties to terrorist groups.

Colorado: Saudi Muslim’s got university prayer room, now want kuffars out

Mini-mosques for foreign Saudi Muslim students on college campuses across the U.S. via Muslim students seek changes to prayer room – The Scribe – University of Colorado. h/t halal

3968834430

In order to meet the religious needs and obligations of students, a room in the Kramer Library was converted into an ad hoc prayer space in Spring 2012.

Foreign, Muslim, Saudi students that is.

According to a sign posted outside multipurpose Room 318, located east of the rear staircase on the third floor the library, the space has been converted into “a room for study, meditation, reflection, and prayer.” It is available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and each student is limited to 30 minutes.

Efforts to allocate a prayer space for Muslim students to conduct their five mandatory daily prayers were started by student Zaina Abukhdeir.

Abukhdeir, a mathematics and secondary education major, is the chair of the UCCS branch of the Muslim Student Alliance.

Whoever wrote this article didn’t do their due diligence, is intentionally deceiving readers or was lied to. One look at the UCCS website of religious groups and we find that Zaina Abukhdeir is the contact for the Muslim Student Association or MSA. That’s a Muslim Brotherhood-founded, Saudi-funded group that has hosted the Taliban, have alumni on the FBI Most Wanted List and attempted to assassinate George Bush – to name a few highlights.

She began requesting a room specifically designated for prayer in 2012. Abukhdeir enlisted the help of Anthony Cordova, director of the MOSAIC Office and CU Opportunity Program, as well as members of the Saudi Club.

According to documentation presented by Abukhdeir – including the original proposal for the room and a copy of the petition submitted to university administration – Teri Switzer, dean of the Kramer Family Library, approved Room 318 be used for prayer.

Despite the designation of a room for multi-faith worship, several groups on campus, including the MSA and the Saudi Club, want a change in the accommodations.

As they open their prayers, they want to defeat the kuffar. Out. Just like the kuffar-free Muslim-only prayer room at the Denver airport.

Answering as the spokesperson for the Saudi Club, Abdullah Almurayh, a Saudi exchange student attending UCCS for a Ph.D. in computer science, explained several concerns regarding the room.

According to the club’s mission statement, its primary function is to “work as a tool to help new students communicate with fellow students, so everyone can share their academic, social, and life experiences and all other resources.”

Additionally, Almurayh indicated the organization exists to provide support for transfer students from Saudi Arabia.

Almurayh’s concerns about the room center around creating conflict with students that use the room in a non-religious, studying capacity.

His chief objection was that asking students present to leave so that he could pray would violate their right to use the room.

Another point of contention for Muslim students, according to Almurayh, is the presence of a large table in the center of the room, which does not allow for adequate space in the event that multiple students wish to pray. The room measures 10 feet by 11 feet.

Almurayh said, “The decision makers may not understand what people need to pray.”

He thinks that it would not be appropriate toward other students to simply pray in open spaces around campus. He also expressed personal safety concerns for praying publicly.

Sounds like these supremacists would fare better at Al-Azhar University.

Almurayh believes the lack of a prayer space that meets all the necessary criteria for Muslim students can be a major consideration for Saudi nationals who are considering attending UCCS.

Why do we need Saudi students?

Saudi students, through the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission (SACM), pay significant tuition fees, both on the state and national level, to attend.

Again the writer provides no details. How much in fees on both levels? Why do they pay more? Do they think because they pay more (yet skate through visa requirements that most other foreigners don’t get) they are entitled to mosques on campuses? Inquiring minds want to know.

Carol Pacheco, a library technician who works at the circulation desk, indicated the library staff has not had any issues with groups trying to use the room at the same time or with study groups yielding the room to students with religious considerations.

Pacheco did indicate the door for the room had been taken off previously due to students misusing the room. Neither Almurayh nor Abukhdeir indicated the lack of the door was a major issue.

Abukhdeir stated that the missing door was an important factor in choosing the room, as it results in a more open atmosphere.

Abukhdeir cited the same issues with the room that Almurayh had mentioned. He suggested specific rooms be designated for specific prayer times to provide a confirmed place to pray while at the same time avoid conflicts with other students attempting to use the same room.

She gave few specifications to the nature of the rooms, only that they be reserved daily and that “the best places would be in the library or in the University Center because they are [more] central.”

Cordova indicated that he would be willing to work with student groups to allocate a room in future UCCS building projects, which would be used entirely for prayer.

Taxpayer funded Islamic prayer rooms in future building projects? Saudi-funded perhaps?

Both the Saudi Club and the MSA are registered under UCCS’ list of cultural clubs and not as religious organizations.

Really? The Abukhdeir’s MSA is listed on this UCCS religious clubs page – http://www.uccs.edu/cao/clubs-and-organizations-2013/religious.html.

Other universities in Colorado, including the University of Denver, also have designated spaces for prayer.

 Update: A reader asked to define kuffar. See what Muslims say to that question, ANSWERED: definition of kuffar.
