ISIS in America: Radicalized in the Heartland (video)

via CBN.com.

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.

Not hard to imagine at all and that would be the first place most Americans would guess if asked.

What is hard to imagine is that the mosques haven’t been shut down, that immigration and importation of Muslims has not been halted and that the passports of Muslims known to have left the U.S. to wage jihad have not been revoked.

Muslim Extradited to New York, Planned Terror Training Camp in Oregon

 Like the deadly ebola virus, Obama has imported a growing list of foreign jihadists to U.S. prisons…where they can preach and recruit. via FBI — Haroon Aswat Extradited from the United Kingdom to the Southern District of New York to Face Terrorism Charges.

…(“FBI”), and … (“NYPD”), announced the extradition of HAROON ASWAT from the United Kingdom to face charges of conspiring to provide and providing material support to al Qaeda and terrorists for attempting to establish a terrorist training camp in the United States.

ASWAT was arrested in Zambia in July 2005, and in August 2005, ASWAT was deported from Zambia to the United Kingdom, where he was arrested pursuant to a provisional warrant that was issued in response to a request by the U.S. Government in connection with this case. On September 4, 2014, the United Kingdom ordered ASWAT extradited to the United States on the charges described below. In coordination with British authorities, ASWAT was extradited from the United Kingdom to the Southern District of New York on October 21, 2014. ASWAT will make his first court appearance later today before U.S. District Judge Katherine B. Forrest.

According to the allegations contained in the Indictment, statements made at related court proceedings, and evidence presented at prior trials:

In late 1999, ASWAT, along with co-defendants Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, a/k/a “Abu Hamza” (“Abu Hamza”), Ouassama Kassir, and Earnest James Ujaama, attempted to create a terrorist training camp in the United States to support al Qaeda, which has been designated by the United States Secretary of State as a foreign terrorist organization. ASWAT conspired with Abu Hamza, Kassir, and Ujaama to establish the terrorist training camp on a rural parcel of property located in Bly, Oregon. The purpose of the Bly, Oregon camp was for Muslims to receive various types of training – including military-style jihad training – in preparation to fight jihad in Afghanistan. As used by the conspirators in this case, the term “jihad” meant defending Islam against purported enemies through violence and armed aggression, including, if necessary, by using murder to expel non-believers from Muslim holy lands.

In a letter faxed from Ujaama, in the United States, to Abu Hamza, in the United Kingdom, the property in Bly was described as a place that “looks just like Afghanistan,” and the letter noted that the men at Bly were “stock-piling weapons and ammunition.” In late 1999, after transmission of the faxed letter, Abu Hamza directed ASWAT and Kassir, both of whom resided in London, England, and attended Abu Hamza’s mosque there, to travel to Oregon to assist in establishing the camp. On November 26, 1999, ASWAT and Kassir arrived in New York, and then traveled to Bly.

ASWAT and Kassir traveled to Bly for the purpose of training men to fight jihad. Kassir told witnesses that he supported Usama Bin Laden and al Qaeda, and that he had previously received jihad training in Pakistan. Kassir also possessed a compact disc that contained instructions on how to make bombs and poisons. After leaving Bly, ASWAT and Kassir traveled to Seattle, Washington, where they resided at a mosque for approximately two months. While in Seattle, Kassir, in ASWAT’s presence, provided men from the mosque with additional terrorist training lessons – including instructions on different types of weapons, how to construct a homemade silencer for a firearm, how to assemble and disassemble an AK-47, and how an AK-47 could be altered to be fully automatic and to launch a grenade. On another occasion, with ASWAT sitting by his side, Kassir announced to the men in Seattle that he had come to the United States for martyrdom and to destroy, and he informed his audience that some of them could die or get hurt.

In September 2002, special agents from the FBI recovered a ledger, among other items, from an al Qaeda safe house in Karachi, Pakistan. The ledger listed a number of individuals associated with al Qaeda, including ASWAT. The al Qaeda safe house was used by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, al Qaeda’s chief operational planner and the alleged planner of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The Indictment charges ASWAT, 40, a British citizen, with four offenses that carry the following maximum penalties:

Charge Statutory Violation Maximum Prison Term

Conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists 18 U.S.C. § 371 Five years

Providing material support to terrorists 18 U.S.C. §§ 2339A, 2 10 years

Conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization (al Qaeda) 18 U.S.C. §2339B 10 years

Providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization (al Qaeda)

18 U.S.C. §§ 2339B, 2 10 years

The maximum potential sentences are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as any sentencing of the defendant will be determined by the judge.

 

3-Month Old American Infant Killed by Muslim Terrorist in Jerusalem (video)

Murdered: Chaya Zisel Braun Courtesy of the Family

via American Infant Killed in Jerusalem Terror Attack – CBN.com.

A day after a Palestinian terrorist killed an American baby in Jerusalem when he plowed a car into a crowd, masked Palestinians threw rocks at a Jerusalem kindergarten.

Wednesday’s terror attack was captured by a security camera that showed Abdul Rahman al-Shaludi driving off the road and accelerating as he ran over pedestrians waiting for a train.

Three-month-old Chaya Zisel Braun, a U.S. citizen, was killed and seven others wounded in the attack.

Chaya’s grandfather, Shimshon Halperin, told reporters the baby’s parents had tried for years to have a child and had just returned from the Western Wall. Baby Chaya was buried overnight in Jerusalem.

Shaludi, the terrorist, was from the mostly Arab neighborhood of Silwan, also known as the City of David, the original site of biblical Jerusalem.

“The suspect fled the scene,” police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

“He was shot by police units that responded quickly in the area, and obviously we’re looking at this incident at this moment in time as a strong possibility of a terrorist related incident,” Rosenfeld said.

Recently a number of Jewish families moved into Silwan, sparking protests there.

Media reports said Hamas carried out the attack. Israel blamed Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas for partnering with Hamas in a unity government.

“The attack on a mother and a baby is typical of Hamas, President Abbas’ partner in the Palestinian government,” Mark Regev, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s spokesman, said.

 More:

Shaludi’s family had claimed to reporters that the incident was an “accident”, despite Abdelrahman being a member of Hamas with a long record of terrorist activity.

But the latest footage shows with chilling clarity how he drove his car purposefully and seemingly with great control through a narrow stretch of pavement between the Light Rail stop and the tracks beside it.

Another American killed by Muslims and Obama says nothing, as if it didn’t even happen.

Update: Memo from US Consulate refers to Jerusalem jihad terror attack that murdered baby girl as “traffic incident”

Muslim who killed Canadian soldier was son of Libyan jihadist

And his mom was “a leading Canadian immigration official.” via Michael Zehaf-Bibeau who shot dead Canadian soldier Nathan Cirillo pictured | Daily Mail Online.

Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the Muslim convert who fatally shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo – a 24-year-old father standing guard at Ottawa’s War Memorial – and injured another officer, was a petty criminal and the son of a leading Canadian immigration official.

Born in Quebec as Michael Joseph Hall and raised in Laval, just north of Montreal, the young man lived a quiet childhood of private schools and suburban homes, with a mother who was a high ranking federal employee.

Then, after years of run-ins with the law, he converted to Islam.

One of his friends, David Bathurst, a fellow convert, said he met him at at the Masjid al-Salaam mosque in Burnaby, British Columbia about three years ago.

Bathurst even got Zehaf-Bibeau a job at his family’s business, Bathurst Irrigation.

He said the young man lived in a small and unfurnished apartment, and that while he did not ‘at first appear to have extremist views or inclinations toward violence’ he ‘at times exhibited a disturbing side.’

‘We were having a conversation in a kitchen, and I don’t know how he worded it: He said the devil is after him,’ Bathurst said.

‘I think he must have been mentally ill.’

He cited one time Bibeau called police to the mosque to confess to a crime he had committed years before.

Bathurst said Bibeau wanted to travel to the Middle East, and he urged him to make sure it was just studying on his mind.

He says Zehaf-Bibeau told him he was ‘only going abroad with the intent of learning about Islam and to study Arabic.’

He was never able to go though, and sources told The Globe and Mail ‘he had not been able to secure a valid travel document from federal officials, who have been taking measures to prevent Canadians from joining extremists overseas.’

It’s understood that he traveled to the U.S on four occasions – most recently in 2013. Officials there are trying to trace who he met while in the country. It’s not known at this time if he made contact with any extremists, according to CNN.

Bathurst says that after friction with the elders at the house of worship, Zehaf-Bibeau was eventually asked to stop attending prayers at the mosque.

Bathurst also brought up that Zehaf-Bibeau knew Hasibullah Yusufzai, a British Columbia man, charged under an anti-terrorism law for allegedly leaving Canada to join Islamist fighters in Syria.

He remains at large.

Zehaf-Bibeau’s mother, Susan Bibeau, still lives in Montreal and works as a a federal public servant for the Immigrant & Refugee board.

She is listed as Deputy Chairperson, Immigration Division. n officer, working her way up over her 24-year career.

She holds a Bachelor of Law degree from the Université de Montréal, a Master of Business Administration from Concordia University, and a graduate certificate in business administration from the Public Administration University.

Zehaf- Bibeau’s father is a Libyan businessman named Bulgasem Zehaf who once owned a local restaurant, Cafe Tripoli.

He divorced Susan Bibeau in 1999, and there are reports that he fought in Libya in 2011.

The Washington Times quoted a fighter named Belgasem Zahef in a dispatch from anti-Gaddafi rebels in 2011. 

Describing himself as from Montreal but a Zawiyah native he said he witnessed torture when held in a regime prison. 

The media would have you think Zehaf-Bibeau was just a regular Canadian kid who converted to Islam when in fact he is the son of a known Libyan jihadist.

Sources describe Zehaf-Bibeau as ‘a man who had had a religious awakening and seemed to have become mentally unstable.’

That was not always the case though it seems.

Janice Parnell, a former neighbor of the family, said Zehaf-Bibeau was a typical teen, though one who led a very privileged life.

She said he went to a ‘private school’ and lived in a ‘nice home in a nice neighborhood,’ and that the only problem she ever had with Bibeau was that he ‘played loud music.’

Why haven’t any pictures of the jihadist been released? Just one supposed picture released by ISIS. Was Zehaf-Bibeau in contact with ISIS or vice versa? How did they get his picture?

Who did he visit on his four trips to the U.S.?

Canadian soldier shot dead by Muslim convert at National War Memorial in Ottawa (video)

On the heels of Monday’s Islamic terror attack that killed a Canadian soldier. via Michael Zehaf-Bibeau shot dead after opening fire at Parliament Hill in Ottawa | Daily Mail Online.

A gunman shot dead a Canadian soldier at the National War Memorial in Ottawa today before exchanging dozens of shots with guards inside Parliament in a terrifying attack that left the nation’s capital on lockdown.

Gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, who reportedly recently converted to Islam, fatally shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo, a 24-year-old father, as he stood guard at the War Memorial on Wednesday morning.

Zehaf-Bibeau then ran inside the Parliament, where he opened fire before he was shot dead by the House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms.

Zehaf-Bibeau was born in Quebec as Michael Joseph Hall but recently converted to Islam,CBS reported. His attack comes just two days after another Canadian soldier was killed in Quebec by a man with jihadist sympathies.

Authorities initially said they believed ‘two or three’ gunmen were responsible for the attack in Ottawa on Wednesday, but at an afternoon press conference, Chief of Police Charles Bordeleau would not confirm whether or not they are still searching for other shooters.

The shooting spree began at 9.52am when witnesses reported seeing a gunman climb out of a car, grab a rifle, shoot the soldier in the abdomen and then run towards Parliament.

A shootout unfolded and Zehaf-Bibeau was killed by Sergeant-At-Arms Kevin Vickers, who worked for the RCMP for 29 years before joining the Parliament in 2006. (He is pictured by the Hill Times.)

‘I am safe & profoundly grateful to Sgt at Arms Kevin Vickers & our security forces for selfless act of keeping us safe,’ said Julian Fantino, Canada’s Minister of Veterans Affairs, on Twitter.

The Sergeant-at-Arms is responsible for safeguarding the authority of the House of Commons and providing safety and security of the Parliament buildings and the people inside.

As gunfire erupted in the hallways, journalists and politicians scrambled for safety, while members in the Conservative Party caucus room blocked the door with a stack of chairs.

A parliamentary guard was shot in the leg during the gunfight but is recovering in hospital, according to Globe and Mail reporter Josh Wingrove, who is inside the building.

Witnesses also told the Citizen that they saw a man wearing an ‘Arabic scarf’ and carrying a long rifle, while others said the suspect looked South American.

Yet to be confirmed, but ISIS has published a photo they claim is the jihadist…yet Canadian police nor Obama can muster a motive.

Update: Obama forced to acknowledge the jihad attack…he still hasn’t mentioned the beheading by a Muslim in Oklahoma:

President Barack Obama condemned fatal shootings in Canada on Wednesday as “outrageous attacks.” ”We’re all shaken by it,” he said.

Obama said the motive for the shootings remained unknown. But he said as more becomes known, that information will be factored into U.S. security considerations. “We have to remain vigilant,” he said.

 It’s unclear who Obama is referring to when he says “we”. It’s certainly not the American people.

Denver: Three Somali, Sudanese Teen Girls Left U.S. to Join Muslim Terrorists

A video at the link says the Obama admin is “wrestling” with whether to charge the Muslim girls caught trying to join Muslim terrorists as terrorists.  via Three American Girls En Route to Syria Planned to Join Militant Groups, Official Says – ABC News.

The FBI has tracked down three American teenage girls in Germany while they were en route to Syria to join militant groups, a law enforcement official told ABC News today.

The girls have not been identified, but law enforcement officials said two are sisters — 15 and 17 years old — and one is 16 years old. The two sisters are from Somalia and the 16-year-old is from Sudan, according to a federal law enforcement source briefed on the case.

This is part of a worrisome trend of “disaffected youth” who are being radicalized, the official said, pointing to the wider phenomenon of foreign fighters converging on the conflict in the region.

There have been other cases of high school age kids trying to get to Syria that haven’t been made public, the official said.

The girls were persuaded to travel overseas and were in contact with someone in Germany, the official said, noting that someone close to them notified authorities.

They were turned around and sent back to the United States, the official said, noting that because they are minors it remains unclear whether they will be charged with anything or be “arrested.”

The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Department in Colorado responded to a call on Oct. 17 of three missing teens, a department spokesman said, noting that deputies responded to two homes with Denver mailing addresses that are technically in unincorporated Arapahoe County. Family and friends reported the girls missing, but nobody mentioned or knew that the girls had gone overseas, according to the sheriff’s department. The case was closed when a family member called Monday to tell the sheriff’s department that the girls were back safe in Colorado, a spokesman said.

“FBI Denver Division is aware of the situation and assisted with bringing the individuals back to Denver. The juveniles are safe and reunited with their families,” FBI Denver spokeswoman Sue Payne said.

How about immigration charges too? Is it not a crime to lie about intended destinations and purpose? Who bought the tickets? Who paid for them? Will the FBI dare investigate the mosques the girls attended? 

 

Canada: Muslim convert who ran down soldiers wanted to wage jihad, “did his part here”

Media is pretty hush hush about this Islamic terror attack on Canadian soil. KhilafahRouleau

via Martin Rouleau ‘died like he wanted to’ | Toronto Star.

MONTREAL—For more than a year they tried. For more than a year they failed to help their friend, Martin Rouleau, see the light of day. —

Whether it was psychological troubles or honest zeal, the young entrepreneur from St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, the friend to all and father to one young boy was lost to a world of conspiracy theories, hatred and religion-fuelled anger that led to what intelligence and security experts have been fretting about for years: a homegrown, radicalized terrorist acting out on Canadian soil.

“It was a terrorist attack and Martin died like he wanted to. That’s what happened,” one close friend, who asked not to be named, told the Star.

Martin Rouleau adopted the Facebook handle “Ahmad Rouleau,” or the Twitter name “Abu Ibrahim AlCanadi,” or created his account on Ummaland, the Muslim social media site, wearing the face covering of a jihadi bearing his copy of the Qur’an like a trophy.

He became obsessed with practicing his new religion. He prayed constantly. He sprouted a heavy beard, but Rouleau’s friends never considered him to be a threat to himself or to others.

Instead, he spent all his energies during visits with friends trying to convince them about his newfound faith, trying to convert them.

“He thought it was true. He believed it all,” Prince said. “He thought that of all the religions it was Islam that was the truest.”

His Facebook posts stretching back to May 2013 touch on the cause of Palestinians, the righteousness of Islam over Christianity and post several photos of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and other world leaders with orthodox Jews. His Twitter account, in which he takes the AlCanadi moniker commonly used by foreigners that have gone to fight with Islamic terror groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS, has no posts but follows a number of ISIS-related users whose focus is the attempt to establish an Islamic caliphate in Syria and Iraq.

Earlier this summer, the two friends said, Rouleau was stopped by authorities while trying to leave the country.

“He did this because he wanted to reach paradise and assure paradise for his family. He wanted to be a martyr,” said the friend who asked not to be named.

But he also defended some of the most despicable acts for which ISIS has been roundly condemned. When ISIS started decapitating hostages, he defended his faith.

“He became an extremist. He wanted to go fight jihad but they wouldn’t let him do it. The caliphate called all the Muslims on earth to fight. He listened to what they had to say and he did his part here.”


 

Jihad Watch found, “Some notable items from Canadian hit-and-run jihadi Ahmad Rouleau’s Facebook page”.
