Yesterday Muslims were threatening to shoot up an Ohio school and attacking Jews in NYC, now this. via Man with ISIS flag on vehicle threatens cops with bomb | Voices.

A man who had an ISIS flag waving from his vehicle is facing several charges after he threatened police with a bomb Wednesday morning when he was pulled over on the Southwest Side.

Emad Karakrah, 49, was charged with felony counts of disorderly conduct and aggravated fleeing; and a misdemeanor count of driving on a never-issued license, according to Chicago Police. He was also issued three traffic citations.

Someone called police after seeing a “suspicious person” driving a silver Pontiac southbound in the 7700 block of South Kedzie at 9:18 a.m. with an ISIS flag waving out the window, according to a police report.

Officers attempted to pull over the vehicle, but the driver took off, according to the report. The officers called for assistance, and another officer pulled the vehicle over after it went through several red lights.

The man told police during his arrest that there was a bomb in the car and he would detonate it if they searched the vehicle, according to the report.

A bomb squad, the FBI and Homeland Security responded to the scene and searched the vehicle, but no bomb was found, authorities said.

Judge Laura Sullivan ordered Karakrah held on a $55,000 bond Thursday. He is next scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 3.

Chicago Police Dept Documentary…on Islam (video)

Stumbled across this video posted in 2009 that should alarm Americans.

The Chicago police department is pimping for Islam in a documentary that shows an unindicted co-conspirator to the 1991 World Trade Center bombing and another Muslim who “officially resigned from the Obama campaign following inquiries from the Wall Street Journal about his ties to the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.”

A Chicago Police Department Documentary about Islam and understanding Muslim beliefs and practices.

It’s a full-fledged ad for Islam and seemingly seeks to force Chicago police officers to submit to Islamic customs sharia law when dealing with Muslim immigrants.

The Illinois State Police learned their lesson after hiring a Hamas-linked Imam to a Chaplain Post, but as recently as 2012 the Chicago Police Dept. Superintendent speaks at Hamas front CAIR-Chicago’s annual fundraiser.

New York is top U.S. city with “known or suspected terrorists”

You already know #2 on the list from yesterday’s post about Dearborn, Michigan and Jihad Watch had the top 5 from the same report:

The top five U.S. cities represented on the main watchlist for “known or suspected terrorists” are New York; Dearborn, Mich.; Houston; San Diego; and Chicago. At 96,000 residents, Dearborn is much smaller than the other cities in the top five, suggesting that its significant Muslim population—40 percent of its population is of Arab descent, according to the U.S. Census Bureau—has been disproportionately targeted for watchlisting. Residents and civil liberties advocates have frequently argued the Muslim, Arab and Sikh communities in and around Dearborn are unfairly targeted by invasive law enforcement probes, unlawful profiling, and racism.

“New York” is a state so it’s not quite clear if that refers to just Manhattan, or other boroughs overflowing with Hamas and jihad supporting Muslims including Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island and possibly portions of New Jersey (e.g., the known Muslim terror hotspot Jersey City).

Following are excerpts from Friday sermons delivered by Sheik Mohamed Elimam at the Chicago Islamic Center on July 18-25, 2014, and then posted on the Internet:

July 18, 2014

Mohamed Elimam: Oh, those of you who want to wage Jihad for the sake of Allah, Palestine is calling you and Gaza is crying out for your help. If you are true believers, real mujahideen, hasten to Palestine. However, if you are collaborators with those who give you weapons and money, then keep indulging yourselves with this money of yours.

[…]

[The Koran says:] “Prepare for them what force and steeds of war you can, to strike fear in the hearts of the enemy of Allah and of your own, and others besides them, whom you do not know, but Allah knows.” All the Arabs have abandoned our brothers in Palestine, and the Muslims are oblivious to them, but Allah supports them. They have prepared for battle. Even if the resistance cannot match [Israel] in numbers and equipment, it does in spirit and steadfastness, as mothers sacrifice their sons and wives sacrifice their husbands for the sake of Allah.

American Muslim Leader Defends Hamas, Praises Israeli Casualties

via AMP Official Defends Hamas, Praises Israeli Casualties

The group American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) does not shy away from its support for the terrorist organization Hamas. The group’s National Campus Coordinator, Taher Herzallah, recently posted Palestine TV photos of injured Israeli soldiers and a destroyed tank to his personal Facebook page. The caption for both photos read: “The most beautiful site in my eyes.” It appears that this post has been removed.

Herzallah proudly lists being part of the ‘Irvine 11′, a group of students arrested after orchestrating a plan to shut down a speech by then-Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren’s 2010 speech at UC Irvine, in his biography.

In another recent Facebook comment, Herzallah justified Hamas rocket fire aimed at Israeli civilians, saying that “in order for them [Israeli society] to feel any compulsion or urge to end the occupation, they need to feel that they are in an abnormal situation. In that regard, Hamas’ rockets are effective even though they don’t kill anyone.”

 

American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) was formed in 2006 as a nonprofit organization based in Chicago with chapters around the country. Its message omits any mention of peaceful coexistence with Israel, and routinely includes calls for an end for U.S. aid to the Jewish state. The AMP is a founding member of the new U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, joining the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).

In April, AMP hosted a fundraiser dinner praising Rasmieh Odeh, a women directly responsible for two deaths in an Israeli grocery store bombing. Odeh was indicted in October and charged with naturalization fraud after failing to disclose her arrest and subsequent imprisonment in Israel for her role in the 1969 bombings by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Other event speakers included a Muslim Brotherhood leader in Jordan who led a Hamas-propaganda arm in the United States and a man listed as a member of the Palestine Committee, the Muslim Brotherhood’s umbrella organization of US-based Hamas-support groups.

Dearborn Muslims take steps to nullify First Amendment free speech rights

And they will seek those they wish to subjugate (Jews & Christians) to help them.

via (UPDATED) Qurans burned at Dearborn mosque; imams consider new law – News – Press and Guide. h/t Dee

DEARBORN — Several Qurans were burned in front of a mosque at about noon Tuesday in possible connection with anti-Islam Pastor Terry Jones’ expected visit to the city Saturday.

The mosque is the center of Dearborn’s Iraqi Shi’a community and is often visited by people interested in its history. Al-Husainy said visitors come each week and for group tours.

Iraqi Shia? Wouldn’t the likely suspects then be Sunni Muslims who are slaughtering Shia in Iraq and elsewhere?

Several attorneys also met with the imams at Thursday’s meeting. Al-Husainy said they helped with legal advice in his plan for a new law making it illegal to burn or desecrate holy books.

“We want all of the religions to cooperate with us to bring respect to the word of God, whether the Quran, Bible, or Torah,” he said.

He said he understands it will be a challenge.

“But again, a journey of 1,000 miles starts with one step,” he said.

He and the imams will collect signatures of supporters before addressing the City Council to inquire about making a new city ordinance.

Al-Husainy said it’s a duty to protect the divine word.

This is sharia.

He said he worries that a nation where the words of God are burned in disrespect will not be blessed anymore.

Several attempts to legally prohibit the desecration of the American flag have failed in the U.S. for reasons that it violates rights to free speech.

Burning the American flag is ok but Obama says:

It’s not the first call by Muslims in the U.S. to enforce sharia law, and if fact, it’s already in affect:

Dearborn has “free speech” zone, everywhere else not free (like sharia)

Dearborn: Local Muslim calls for sharia patrols at city council meeting

Muslim Community, CAIR Rally for, Praise Terrorist Killer Now Living in Chicago

via ‘I Just About Vomited’: Texas Man Says He’s Sickened After Hearing Chicago Arab & Muslim Community Praise His Brother’s Terrorist Killer | TheBlaze.com.

Arab and Muslim American organizations – along with radical left-wing academics and a Quaker group – are closing ranks behind a convicted Palestinian terrorist who on Wednesday rejected a plea deal that would have allowed her to avoid a 10-year prison sentence for failing to disclose her terrorist past to U.S. immigration authorities.

The groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Arab American Action Network (AAAN), and the United States Palestinian Community Network (USPCN), insist Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, a 66-year-old Chicago woman who was convicted for taking part in a 1969 terrorist bombing that killed two students in Jerusalem, is a simple victim of government profiling and prejudice.

Among the community’s efforts on behalf of the woman who reportedly has used up to nine aliases (at her workplace she’s known as “Rasmea Yousef”): the sale of “I support Rasmea” T-shirts, the hiring of buses to bring “hundreds” of Chicago-area supporters to her June 10 trial in Detroit, the solicitation of contributions to her legal defense fund and a letter-writing campaign to the U.S. Attorney in Detroit.

CAIR-Chicago posted this photo of the table where “I support Rasmea” T-shirts were sold.

The brother of 21-year-old Eddie Joffe – one of the two victims of the bombing she took part in with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) – lives in Houston and only last week learned she had been living in the U.S. for 20 years. Basil Joffe told the National Review that he was sickened to hear about the praise being heaped upon Odeh by her community.

His brother Eddie and his best friend Leon Kanner were stocking up on groceries for a hiking trip when a can of sweets rigged with dynamite detonated at the Jerusalem supermarket, killing both.

Basil Joffe told National Review that “the body was so badly burned and blackened from the explosion that they could barely recognize it” and that his parents never recovered until the day they died from the devastation of losing their son.

Joffe said “I just about vomited” after hearing the praise being poured on his brother’s killer, particularly the allegation that she’s an innocent victim of discrimination.

“How could they purport to prevent unfair discrimination and stereotyping when one of their [leaders] is a convicted terrorist, murdered people, and is unrepentant? It makes a hypocrisy, a mockery, of what they’re trying to accomplish,” Basil Joffe told National Review.

National Review noted a 2004 documentary film called “Women in Struggle” in which Odeh and one of her co-conspirators in the PFLP attack spoke proudly of their violent activities.

The second woman described the effort put into killing as many Israelis as possible, saying, “We wanted to place two bombs to blow up consecutively. I suggested to have the second bomb go off five or six minutes after the first bomb so that those who get killed in it would be members of the army and secret service, but it did not explode. They defused it 20 seconds before it exploded.”

Given the official glorification of terrorism in the Palestinian Authority, Basil Joffe said he is worried that if she is deported from the U.S. and returns to the region she will receive “a hero’s welcome.”

Odeh was sentenced to life in prison by an Israeli court in 1970 but after ten years was released as part of a PFLP prisoner exchange deal.

Margaret Jackson, the interim regional director of the American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker group that supports a boycott of Israel, told National Review of her belief that Odeh’s immigration prosecution is rooted in bigotry. “It just infuriates me that this country continues to discriminate on color and religion and they’re so desperate that they go back into the past to do that,” Jackson said. “As an organization that is almost 100 years old and committed to non-violence, I’m just appalled by this situation.”

The Israeli government will not comment on the case playing out in Detroit, but an Israeli official told TheBlaze on Thursday that U.S. law enforcement officials contacted their Israel counterparts early in the investigation to verify that Odeh was the one involved in the 1969 terrorist attack.

“She was released from jail. That’s a decision we made. We have to live with our decisions, but from that day onwards we’re uninvolved,” said the official who asked to not be named due to the ongoing legal proceedings. [Deport her back to Israel]

Though most people facing deportation over immigration fraud remain locked up after they serve their sentences until the moment they are deported, Tukel explained that in Odeh’s case the U.S. was willing to allow her to remain free in the U.S. for half a year.

Palestinian and other activists continue to praise her and have organized a fundraising dinner for her this weekend in honor of her birthday.
