Kansas: Muslim convicted of murder & on trial for child rape sues jail over Ramadan meals

A murderer and child rapist, as was his Prophet. via Muslim inmate sues Shawnee County Jail over religious rights | CJOnline.com.

Shawnee County Jail inmate Eddie A. Gordon Sr., a practicing Muslim and convicted murderer facing sex crime charges, filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday seeking $2 million and alleging his religious rights were violated.

Gordon, acting as his own attorney, filed the lawsuit in a 15-page handwritten petition submitted to U.S. District Court in Topeka.

Defendants listed include the Shawnee County Jail; Aramark, the jail’s food service provider; Brian Cole, director of the Shawnee County Department of Corrections; and Timothy Phelps, a major in that department.

Shawnee County counselor Rich Eckert said Thursday: “The Shawnee County Department of Corrections abides as close as constitutionally possible to the religious dictates of various religions including diet, reading materials or other needs of faith. We are confident Mr. Gordon was treated in an appropriate manner and look forward to this baseless lawsuit being dismissed in a timely manner.”

The lawsuit petition contends Gordon at one point wasn’t fed for 28 hours during the season of Ramadan, when Muslims for 30 days fast from dawn until after sunset.

The petition added that when Gordon was fed, his Ramadan meals were cold and unbearable to eat.

Shawnee County District Court records indicate Gordon, 25, is awaiting trial on charges of rape of a child younger than 14 years old and attempted aggravated criminal sodomy to a child younger than 14.

A jail official said Thursday that Gordon is to be returned to the Kansas Department of Corrections when prosecution is complete in the sexual assault case.

Gordon became a state prison inmate after being sentenced in October 2011 to about 23 years in prison for intentional second-degree murder in the November 2010 gunshot slaying of 24-year-old Vincent G. Lambert at a home in the city’s Oakland community.

Kansas City: Pro-Hamas Muslims threaten American (video)

In every U.S. city where Muslims protest in favor of Hamas, they threaten Americans. It will only get worse as the “tiny minority” grows rapidly and more violent. via CausingFitna.

Ban immigration of Muslims. ASAP. Your children and theirs will thank you.

Update on the man who got camera shy before his henchmen came to his rescue. From Causing Fitna, There is no Muslim Brotherhood in the United States……. ummm, CORRECTION:

Mohammad Albadawi, a leader with the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City, as well as a leading organizer for MAS-ICNA conventions nationwide for many years.

Mohammed Albadawi is also registered with the Secretary of State in Missouri as the registered agent for tax exempt status for the Islamic School of Greater Kansas City. If he has anything to do with teaching kids, it should be no wonder we see American born Muslims like Mohamad Sultan suporting HAMAS and the Ikhwan so openly. Mohammed El-Housiny a Viva Palestina organizer also has been both a student and a leader of the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City, so it is not surprising to see him join with George Galloway while taking money to HAMAS. A portion of a recent radio interview with Mohamad Sultan and Mohammed El-Housiny can be heard here, it should also give some insight into their views.

Update 2: Akram Dalaq, pictured here as a member of the MAS-ICNA team, is the Muslim who threatened to follow the reporter.

National media seem to be intentionally ignoring the trend of escalating Muslim violence and threats in the U.S…in the last week:

Kansas: FBI, EPA raid home of American Muslim Council founder

Failed to “attain compliance with its radioactive materials license.” via Feds, EPA raid home in upscale Leawood neighborhood – KCTV5. h/t CF

LEAWOOD, KS (KCTV) – Federal Bureau of Investigation confirms they assisted the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in a raid in an upscale Leawood neighborhood.

It happened Thursday.

The man who answered the door located off 103rd Street is Ahmed El-Sherif, founder of the American Muslim Council of Greater Kansas City.

El-Sherif has been involved in some arguably valuable work in the metro for years, including interfaith get-together’s for children’s charities. But he’s recently found himself in the middle of some negative press.

Last October the feds seized El-Sherif’s business, the Beta Chem laboratory in Lenexa, KS. The EPA said it found hazardous chemicals in the building where radioactive pharmaceutical compounds were made for medical research.

Past inspections also revealed radioactive contamination.

At the time of the raid KCTV5 was told that Beta Chem uses the Carbon 13 isotope, which is unstable.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said it asked Beta Chem to “attain compliance with its radioactive materials license” but says the business never did. That’s why the building was seized and hazmat crews were called in.

Thursday the EPA raided El-Sherif’s home. Neighbors tell KCTV5 off camera that investigators were out there all day.

El-Sherif declines to talk about why his house was raided, including whether it was connected to his old Lenexa business. He instead referred KCTV5 to his attorney who hasn’t returned any calls.

KCTV5 also has a message into the EPA to find out why they were at the home but, due to the holiday weekend, they have not returned any calls.

 

Kansas: Sedgwick County Sheriff Surrenders to Hamas-CAIR

via Understanding The Threat Blog.

Click for Sheriff Feedback Form

Sedgwick County Sheriff Jeff Easter today cancelled next week’s planned UTT 2-day training program, caving in to complaints by Hamas and local Muslim Brotherhood leaders in Wichita and other parts of Kansas.

For more details, watch the local ABC Report

The loudest complaints came from Hamas spokesman Ibrahim Hooper.  Hooper works for the Hamas organization called the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).  For those confused about CAIR being Hamas…

In a December 2007 government filing in the US v Sabri Benkhala appeal – an Al Qaeda operative – the government stated:  “From its founding by the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, CAIR conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.”  A massive amount of evidence entered into the largest Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history (US v Holy Land Foundation (“HLF”), Dallas, 2008) identified CAIR as the fourth organization created by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee in America.  The Palestine Committee is Hamas.  Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. government.

When CAIR petitioned the Federal Court to remove it’s name from the Unindicted Co-Conspirator list in the HLF case, the trial Judge Jorge Solis wrote in his 2010 unsealed opinion, “The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT with the HLF, the Islamic Association of Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas.”  CAIR was left on the Co-Conspirator list.  CAIR appealed the ruling and the appellate court ruled unanimously to keep CAIR listed as an “Unindicted Co-Conspirator” in the largest Hamas trial in U.S. history because of the overwhelming evidence.

Other Muslims in the community who complained to the Sedgwick Sheriff’s office were leaders and spokesmen from the local Muslim Students Associations (the first Muslim Brotherhood organization established in America in 1963) and the Islamic Society of Wichita – a Muslim Brotherhood organization and a subsidiary of the Islamic Society of North America which is the largest MB organization here and a financial support entity for Hamas per the evidence at the HLF trial.

These are the groups and individuals who have led the charge to shut this training down in Wichita…enemies of the United States.

Because of the nature of the threat from the Islamic Movement in the United States (an insurgency), the burden falls to local police to be the tip of the spear in countering their efforts here.  When local police leaders are not aware of this and do not understand their critical role in the larger war, the war will be lost.

In the press release today the Sedgwick Sheriff’s Office stated:  “The Sheriff’s Office will find an instructor, either from the Department of Justice or another subject matter expert to present such material in the future.”  Unfortunately for Wichita law enforcement, this material is not being presented by any other organization in the nation besides UTT.  A few years ago during a 3-day program at Headquarters Marine Corps for approximately 115 professionals from FBI (to include the National Joint Terrorism Task Force personnel), CIA, DHS, DIA, NSA, local and state police, military, and others, a Counterterrorism Supervisor from FBI Headquarters stood up in front of the entire crowd and stated he never heard any of the material presented but confirmed it was true and factual based on the evidence and materials presented.  When asked, none of the other attendees were aware of this information either, including the men and women from the FBI’s National Joint Terrorism Task Force in attendance.

So, by canceling this training in Kansas, the Sedgwick County Sheriff has not only emboldened our enemy – namely the Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas – he has ensured that local law enforcement will NOT get the very training they need to protect and defend their communities.

CAIR national spokesman Ibrahim Hooper called the sheriff’s decision “really good news.”

Good for jihadists because as usual, the media is either ignorant or complicit in explaining to American citizens exactly who CAIR is, their terrorist history and their ultimate objective.

Kansas City: “Mohammed” arrested in highway shootings

Shades of the Beltway Sniper John Allan Muhammad? via Man charged in Kansas City highway shootings. h/t iOwnTheWorld.com

KANSAS CITY, Missouri (CNN) – The man charged with shooting at motorists on Kansas City highways apparently fired a .380 pistol from his own car before speeding away, documents released on Friday said.

Authorities identified the suspect as Mohammed Pedro Whitaker. He is 27 and lives in Grandview, south of Kansas City, reported CNN affiliate KCTV-TV. He was charged with 18 felony counts covering nine incidents and is being held under $1 million cash bond.

Probable cause statements show police connected the shootings through .380 bullets found in the vehicles. Starting in early March, motorists told police of being shot at in the I-435/I-470/Highway 71 interchanges.

In several cases, the drivers reported seeing a dark green car near them driven by a man wearing sunglasses, a dark hoodie and sometimes a black ski mask.

One break came when a witness looking for a lost cell phone beside a road found a Walmart bag containing .380 ammunition, the documents showed. Prints on the ammunition boxes matched Whitaker’s.

The shootings began March 8. Some motorists weren’t even aware shots had been fired at their vehicles.

 Kansas City has a rapidly growing Islamic problem.

 

Kansas: Ex-Army recruit’s espoused jihad, killing US soldiers, FBI says not a threat

Screen-shot-2014-03-31-at-7.22.03-PM

via GI Jihadi: Ex-Army recruit’s online terror threats exposed | Fox News.

John Thomas Booker, 19, of Topeka, Kan. enlisted in the Army in February and was due to report for basic training on April 7. But the FBI interviewed him in March and alerted the Army, which formally discharged him last week. He is now in an undisclosed mental health facility, sources told FoxNews.com.

…on Tuesday, the FBI downplayed the “routine” alert, saying it was not actively searching for Booker. The agency said it did not believe he posed an “imminent threat,” despite the original alert’s invocation of the Fort Hood shooting, where an Army psychologist killed 13 and wounded more than 30 on a Texas military base in 2009.

“We have interviewed this individual,” an FBI spokesman said. “There is not a manhunt and there never was one. There is no imminent threat to public safety, nor should the public be concerned that this threat exists from an individual at large.”

But weeks earlier, even as Booker was being recruited by the Army and preparing to report, a check of his activity on various social media sites might have revealed he was not fit to serve. As far back as five months before enlisting, he was actively posting in support of the murder of U.S. troops overseas.

The Facebook profile believed to have been created by Booker was taken down on Monday night, though FoxNews.com obtained numerous screen shots of his posts and photos. The page, as well as numerous YouTube rants, painted a picture of a troubled radical with bad intentions long before he was recruited by the Army, or interviewed by the FBI’s Kansas City office.

“I wanna be a martyr (shaheed)!!! YA, brothers and sisters,” he said on a YouTube video some seven months ago. “Make a dua for me asking Allah to make me a martyr, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!! My name is above in blue.”

Around the same time, he commented on a video called “American soldiers A day in iraq Part 1,” saying, “I’m am Muslim. Muslims had no business in Iraq.” The video shows, graphically, American troops under fire in Iraq in 2008.

Booker, who attended Topeka West High School, where he was a member of the Junior ROTC program before graduating in 2012, at some point began calling himself Muhammad Abdullah Hassan. According to his now-defunct Facebook profile, Hassan “Studied Protection, Security and Investigation at Flint Hills Job Corps” and lives in Topeka.

On March 9, a month after he enlisted at the Kansas City recruiting station, Booker posted a series of photos of Usama bin Laden holding various weapons. “Allahu Akbar J Sheikh Osama bin Laden and his army..” reads a post by the photo.

On March 15, a post on the Facebook page expressed Booker’s desire to die for his beliefs.

“Oh those of the ummah of the Prophet Muhammad(S)j. I will soon be leaving you forever so goodbye!” it read. “I am going to wage jihad and hopes that i die. I want to be with my lord so bad that I cry but I will miss you guys I am not going to lie. I wish I could give you guys more but I am just a guy who is so very poor. I am telling you I am so broke that my pockets are soreJ I cannot wait to go to the Prophet Muhammad’s(S) door and prank Isa bin Maryan and party so hard that it will rock Jannah to its core. Only Allah knows what the future has in store so that should make you fear Allah much much more.”

“Getting ready to be killed in jihad is a HUGE adrenaline rush! I am so nervous,” read a March 19 post on the Facebook page authorities believe belonged to the subject of the alert. “NOT because I’m scared to die but I am EAGER to meet my lord.”

Kansas: FBI, military hunt ex-Army recruit suspected of plotting ‘Ft. Hood-inspired jihad’

Screen-shot-2014-03-31-at-7.22.03-PM

via FBI, military hunt ex-Army recruit suspected of plotting ‘Ft. Hood-inspired jihad’ | Fox News.

The FBI is searching for a recent Army recruit believed to be planning a “Fort Hood-inspired jihad against U.S. soldiers,” FoxNews.com has learned.

The alert, whose legitimacy was confirmed by military and law enforcement officials, stated that a man identified as Booker had told friends of his “intention to commit jihad.” Booker, who is also known as Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, was recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7. But he was discharged last week, apparently after law enforcement authorities learned of his alleged plan.

 Both the FBI and the 902d Military Intelligence Group at Fort Leavenworth are involved in the hunt.

 The alert, a copy of which was obtained by FoxNews.com, was sent out by the FBI’s Kansas City Division on Friday and distributed through the U.S. Marine Corps. The portion obtained by FoxNews.com did not include Hassan’s photo or age. It was also sent to the Kansas City Police Department, which could indicate authorities believe he may have remained in the area where he was recruited.

 The alert is titled, “Planned Fort Hood-inspired Jihad against US Soldiers by Army Recruit” and was issued “to inform and protect officers who may encounter this individual or others exhibiting the same aspirations.” The source of the information contained in the alert was listed as “An FBI agent.”

 According to the alert:

 “On 20 March 2014, the Kansas City Division FBI became aware of an individual named BOOKER aka Muhammad Abdullah Hassan who had publicly stated his intention to commit jihad, bidding farewell to his friends and making comments indicating his jihad was imminent. BOOKER had been recruited by the US Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for Basic Training on 7 April 2014. Kansas City Division Agents interviewed BOOKER on 20 March 2014.”

 Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Ty Balzer confirmed the alert’s legitimacy, but referred questions to the FBI. A spokeswoman with the Kansas City Division of the FBI — the same division responsible for sending out the alert and who, according to the alert, spoke with Booker on March 20 — said she did “not have any information to provide in regards to your inquiry.”

 Law enforcement sources familiar with the alert said it appeared to suggest that there may be others in addition to Booker who also might have expressed similar intentions to commit jihad against U.S. military installations.

 A military source said it appeared the bulletin was provided by the FBI, then distributed by the Marine Corps under the normal protocol of sharing any information relating to a potential threat to U.S. military installations or personnel.

 A spokesman for the Kansas City recruiting station where Booker enlisted referred FoxNews.com’s questions to 902d Military Intelligence Group, which did not immediately return requests for comment.

 The Fort Hood shooting, referenced in the alert, took place on Nov. 5, 2009. U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Hasan, a psychiatrist who had become a radical Muslim while serving in the military, killed 13 people and injured dozens more inside the Texas Army base. Hasan, who represented himself at a military trial after clashing with his appointed attorneys, was sentenced to death in August.

More via HEAVY.

Through postings on Hassan’s Facebook page, beginning on February 23, he posted al-Qaida propaganda materials. There are also photos of Osama bin Laden and a video of the 9/11 mastermind reciting the Quran. On March 15, Hassan posted:

Oh those of the ummah of the Prophet Muhammad(S). I will soon be leaving you forever so goodbye! I am going to wage jihad and hopes that i die. I want to be with my lord so bad that I cry but I will miss you guys I am not going to lie. I wish I could give you guys more but I am just a guy who is so very poor.

I am telling you I am so broke that my pockets are sore:) I cannot wait to go the Prophet Muhammad’s(S) door and prank Isa bin Maryam and party so hard that it will rock Jannah to its core. Only Allah knows what the future has in store so that should make you fear Allah much much more.

 Remember, Chris Christie claims he knows nothing about jihad, yet wants to be president.

Wichita Airport Bomb-Plotter Wanted to Be “Obedient Slave of Allah”

via The Investigative Project on Terrorism.

An FBI sting has led to the arrest of a Wichita, Kan. man who thought he was about to die in a suicide car bombing that targeted a terminal at the city’s Mid-Continent Airport.

Terry Lee Loewen, 58, worked at the airport as an avionics technician. This gave him access to airport grounds. He was arrested before dawn Friday after he tried to open a security gate and get on the tarmac, the Kansas City Star reports.

According to a three-count complaint, Loewen discussed his view of faith as a Muslim. That included expressing “his desire to engage in violent jihad on behalf of al Qaeda” during an online conversation with someone whom, unbeknownst to him, was an FBI employee.

“I don’t understand how you can read the Qur’an and the sunnah of the Prophet (saw) and not understand that jihad and the implementation of Sharia is absolutely demanded of all the Muslim Ummah,” Loewen allegedly wrote Aug. 5. “I feel so guilt-ridden sometimes for knowing what’s required of me but yet doing little or nothing to make it happen. I love my Muslim brothers and sisters, whether they agree with me or not, it’s just hard to deal with the denial that some of them appear to be going through.”

At one point, Loewen acknowledged not knowing whether he could trust his contact. But it wasn’t enough to discourage him from pursuing an attack. “my greatest fear is not being able to complete an operation because I was set up,” he wrote. “I hate this government so much for what they have done to our brothers and sisters, that to spent (sic) the rest of my life in prison without having taken a good slice out of the serpents head is unacceptable to me.”

Kansas: Convert to Islam Charged in Wichita Airport Car Bomb Plot

‘The operation was timed to cause maximum carnage + death.’article-2523387-1A16B1FC00000578-785_634x435

via FBI — Kansas Man Charged in Plot to Explode Car Bomb at Airport.

WASHINGTON—A man has been charged in federal court with attempting to explode a car bomb at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport, Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Carlin and U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom announced today. The defendant was arrested as part of an FBI undercover investigation, and the device used by the defendant was, in fact, inert and at no time posed a danger to the public.

Terry Lee Loewen, 58, of Wichita, Kansas, is charged in a criminal complaint filed today in U.S. District Court in Wichita with one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, one count of attempting to damage property by means of an explosive, and one count of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

“There was no breach of Mid-Continent’s Airport’s security,” said U.S. Attorney Grissom. “At no time was the safety of travelers or members of the public placed in jeopardy.”

Loewen, who works as an avionics technician, is alleged to have spent months developing a plan that involved using his access card to airport grounds to drive a van loaded with explosives to the terminal. He planned to pull the trigger on the explosives himself and die in the explosion.

Agents arrested Loewen about 5:40 a.m. Friday after he attempted to enter the airport tarmac and deliver a vehicle loaded with what he believed were high explosives. Members of the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) took him into custody without incident.

Loewen has been under investigation by the Wichita Joint Terrorism Task Force since early summer 2013. It is alleged that, prior to his attempted attack, he made statements that he was resolved to commit an act of violent jihad against the United States. Over a period of months, he took a series of actions to advance the plot. According to an affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, Loewen:

  • studied the layout of the airport and took photographs of access points;
  • researched flight schedules;
  • assisted in acquiring components for the car bomb;
  • and talked about his commitment to trigger the device and martyr himself.

On Friday, Loewen went to Mid-Continent Airport to detonate the car bomb. He was taken into custody when he attempted to open a security access gate. FBI Evidence Response Teams are executing search warrants related to the case. Although the investigation is ongoing, no additional arrests are anticipated.

“Lone wolves—home-grown violent extremists—remain a very serious threat to our nation’s security,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Michael Kaste. “Today’s arrest emphasizes the continual need for the public to remain vigilant as law enforcement relies on the public’s assistance.”

If convicted, Loewen would face a maximum penalty of life in federal prison.

MoreFeds say they disrupted suicide bomb plot by worker at Wichita airport

Loewen, who is white, became radicalized after reading extremist Islamic material on the Internet, Grissom said.

A criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Wichita charges Loewen with one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, one count of attempting to damage property by means of an explosive and one count of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. He was scheduled to be arraigned at 3 p.m. local time.

Investigators tell NBC News that Loewen has been under scrutiny since August, when he began having an online exchange with someone he thought was a like-minded individual but who turned out to be an FBI employee.

“Let me preface the bottom line by saying I have become ‘radicalized’ in the strongest sense of the word, and I don’t feel Allah wants me any other way,” he said in one message, according to the complaint.

At the news conference, Grissom and Michael Kaste, special agent in charge of the FBI office in Kansas City, stressed that the suspect was under constant surveillance and at no time was the public in danger.

More: ‘Brother Bin Laden is a great inspiration to me’

According to the affidavit, the undercover agent was told by the suspect on August 5 this year: ‘As time goes on I care less and less about what other people think of me or my views on Islam.

‘I have been studying subjects like jihad, martyrdom operations and Sharia law.’

He later continued: ‘I feel so guilt-ridden sometimes for knowing what’s required of me but yet doing little or nothing to make it happen.’

In a later message to an undercover officer, according to the affidavit, Loewen said: ‘Brothers like Osama bin Laden and Anwar Al Awlaki are a great inspiration to me…’

The terror suspect later said that he had been studying Al-Awlaki’s methods of jihad and ‘printed out something called the Al Qaeda manual’.

Loewen also told an undercover agent during the online chats of some of the deadly plans he had in mind. He explained his plot in detail, offering a supposed accomplice a tour of the airport and said how he could be the ‘access’ guy.

He wrote: ‘I’m 58 years old and spending my remaining years behind bars for a good reason is not out of the question for me.’

Loewen sent pictures to the undercover agent of what appeared to be fighter jet trainers on the tarmac outside of the hanger where he worked at the airport, according to the affidavit.

The interactions between the suspect and the agent continued to the point of purchasing material that Loewen believed to be capable of creating a bomb.

On Wednesday, the FBI employee made the final preparations on the bomb and Loewen said that he was ‘happy’ with the plan which was set for December 13.

This morning before 5am, Loewen was picked up by his believed accomplice at a local hotel and taken to a location where they had stored the bomb.

The suspect finished wiring the device, believing that it would be ‘operational’, according to the affidavit. They drove to the airport and at a security gate, Loewen tried twice to use his access badge, which was unique to him, to enter the tarmac.

However the gate had been disabled by authorities and Loewen was taken into custody.

In a suicide letter that Loewen wrote for a family member, he wrote, according to the affidavit: ‘By the time you read this I will – if everything went as planned – have been martyred in the path of Allah.

He continued: ‘The operation was timed to cause maximum carnage + death.’

He closed the letter with the words: ‘I expect to be called a terrorist (which I am), a psychopath, and a homicidal maniac’

At one point, Loewen acknowledged not knowing whether he could trust his contact.

ghazaliThe KU professor is the daughter of one Hamed Ghazali. A little on his background:

During the Federal investigation of The Holy Land Foundation, a document was seized when a search warrant was executed on the home of a Muslim Brotherhood member in Virginia. This document outlined the official strategy of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. The document, which is titled, “The Explanatory Memorandum of the North American Muslim Brotherhood” mentions on page 12 that “We have a seed for a “comprehensive Dawa’ educational” organization: We have the Daw’a section in ISNA + Dr. Jamal Badawi Foundation + the center run by brother Hamed al-Ghazali + the Dawa’ center the Dawa’ Committee and brother Shaker al-Sayyed are seeking to establish now + in addition to other Daw’a efforts here and there…”.

Dr. Hamed Ghazali‘s name also appears in the Muslim Brotherhood’s phone book which was another document that was seized by Federal agents and used in the Holy Land Foundation trial. This phone book is dated 1992 and contains names of the top tier of the North American Muslim Brotherhood leadership.

Kansas: FBI reports threat to Wichita water supply

via GroundZeroMosque.

WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita has received information from the FBI regarding a threat to the city’s water system.

The agency isn’t saying how that threat was received or what it entailed.

However, Wichita isn’t alone.

Three other Midwest cities water supplies are also facing a threat, and while the FBI is investigating, they’re not naming the others.

FBI agents have been in Wichita investigating our water supply facilities.

“We take any threat to public safety seriously, but it’s important to know, there has been no portion of the threat substantiated at this time,” said Bridget Patton, FBI spokeswoman.

Wichita spokesman Van Williams said security at the city’s system is being increased as a result of the threat.

City officials say the water is safe, and the public will be notified immediately if that changes.

Was the threat similar to the Saudi’s, Pakistani’s Caught Trespassing at the Reservoir Supplying Boston’s Drinking Water? If so, no one will be charged and we’ll never know who the perpetrators were.

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) — Authorities have charged a suspect in relation to the shooting that took place Thursday night at a Topeka apartment complex.

Captain Brian Desch tells 13 News that 37-year-old Shiek Imtiaz Azeez, the alleged shooter, has been charged with aggravated battery and attempted murder after police found a woman shot multiple times Thursday evening inside the Overlook Apartments at 1306 SW Summit Woods Dr. The two are listed as spouses and were living together at the Overlook.

Police also say there was a child of the victim’s in the apartment. It is a step-child of Azeez.

Topeka Police believe the incident to be domestic, and are not releasing the victim’s name.

Azeez’s bond is set at $500,000.

Topeka Police responded just after 8 p.m. to a report of shots fired at the complex, west of Huntoon and Wanamaker. When officers arrived they found one woman shot multiple times and suffering from life threatening injuries. She was rushed to Stormont-Vail Hospital and her condition was made stable.

Police identified Azeez as a person of interest. TPD officers and K9 units along with the Kansas Highway Patrol helicopter assisted in locating Azeez in the apartment complex. He was detained at the scene and taken into custody.

Overlook management said their first priority is taking care of resident needs. They said they have not received any more details from police, and once they do, they will send out a letter to Overlook residents about the incident.

The incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information about this crime or any crime is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 234-0007.

The students study civilizations throughout time, throughout the world. Religion is an important component of the history of civilizations. The students study religion with a focus on the history and geography in the development of civilizations. The school does not promote or proselytize any religion. Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam are all taught in a historical context of their study of the world to understand the place of religion and religious ideas in history. There is also a painting of the Last Supper hanging in the school. The teachers are mindful of the sensitivity over religion. The students at Minneha have received these lessons for years.

A photo taken of a bulletin board without context is misleading and some have taken it out of context without having all the information. Because of the misunderstanding that has been promoted by that one photograph, the bulletin board has been taken down.

Students and staff have the right to engage in private prayer or religious activities in school as long as it’s not disruptive.

Minneha is a Core Knowledge magnet school. As a school of choice, more than 60% of Minneha’s students apply for admission to the school in order to receive the core knowledge education that is the foundation of the school. As part of the core knowledge curriculum, which is overseen by a national foundation devoted to core knowledge education, there is study on civilizations throughout time, and throughout the world.

PJ Media contacted Doug Bonney, legal director of the Kansas chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU has frequently taken action regarding similar displays regarding Christianity. Bonney said he was only peripherally aware of the issue as he is “not a blog reader,” but that he had received a brief phone call on it:

Nobody ever filed a formal complaint. I haven’t investigated, and since [the display is] down I probably won’t bother. I don’t know enough about it to know if it was objectionable or not.

However, Bonney said that the display was likely not objectionable to him, judging from the information he had:

There’s something of a fine line between teaching about religion and proselytizing. Proselytizing is, of course, prohibited.

He said a temporary display is different than a permanent display, and noted that in an educational context the display was probably acceptable. For comparison, Bonney noted that the Ten Commandments display at the University of Kansas Law School is legal because it is in context with several other displays of historical law, such as one depicting Hammurabi.

Ken Klukowski of the Family Research Council took exception to Bonney’s assertions:

[Bonney's response] is fascinating, because the ACLU routinely takes great exception to posting the Ten Commandments. They have always vehemently opposed the Ten Commandments. This is a great example of the double standard on the left.

Klukowski said the ACLU has argued that the very presence of a display of the Ten Commandments is a violation of the Establishment Clause, and that the ACLU rarely makes accusations of proselytizing.

The Islamization of The ACLU

Temporarily. Principal defends and claims the huge display to open the school year was taken out of context. Send the ironically named Dr. Hope to Egypt, Iran or Somalia for some context. Or Dearborn even.

via USD 259 sends letter to parents over Five Pillars of Islam bulletin board – KFDI.

Wichita Public Schools has sent a letter to parents explaining a bulletin board portraying the Five Pillars of Islam at Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet Elementary.

The bulletin board has come under scrutiny after a photo of it was posted online. The photo was shared more than 3,700 times on the Facebook page “Prepare to Take America Back.”

The district has removed the bulletin board, but said the photo is a misrepresentation. In an email statement, the district said Islam is one of five major religions taught at the school for their historical significance. Other religions include Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism.

The district said the Islam bulletin board will be taken down until the curriculum is taught later in the fall. A painting of the Last Supper is also hanging in the school, the district said.

Minneha is a Core Knowledge magnet school, meaning students apply for admission.

The content of the district’s letter to parents is as follows:

Good afternoon Minneha parents,

THANK YOU for a wonderful start to our school year! It was fabulous to see so many of you at school for our Meet the Teacher night and bond celebration. We are so grateful for your support as we begin the year.

I am writing today to let you know about an issue that you may hear about in our community over the next several days. As vital advocates for our school community and the Core Knowledge curriculum at Minneha, it is important for you to have facts about this issue should you receive questions.

Religion is an important component of the history of civilizations. Your students at Minneha cover the five major religions of the world – Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam – as part of their Core Knowledge magnet curriculum. Students study civilizations throughout time, throughout the world, and cover religion with a focus on history and geography in the development of civilizations.

Over the last several days, questions have emerged about a bulletin board in our 4th grade hallway that represents the 5 Pillars of Islam. This display represented one aspect of religion in a historical context. Other aspects of religion in a historic and geographic context will be taught in 1st, 2nd,  4th  and 5th grades this fall.  The purpose of this study is not to explore matters of theology, but to understand the place of religion and religious ideas in history.

Unfortunately, a photo of this bulletin board has been posted in an online forum without appropriate representation of the historical context in which it was to be used. There are some who took offense to the bulletin board without understanding Core Knowledge curriculum, and this offense resulted in numerous phone calls, e-mails and media inquiries. In order to alleviate the distraction to our students and teachers, the display was taken down last week until this particular unit for 4th graders is taught in early October.

Those of you who are returning Minneha parents also know that there is a painting of the Last Supper hanging in the school as part of the study of art and the Renaissance period.  Our Minneha students have received these lessons as part of their Core Knowledge education for years. With more than 60 percent of our Minneha students coming to us as magnet students, we know you place great value on the strength and tradition of the Core Knowledge curriculum.

If any of you would like to know more about specific aspects of our curriculum as it relates to this subject, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I would be happy to share that information with you. Or you may visit www.coreknowledgefoundation.org for additional details.

Thank you for your on-going support of Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet Elementary!

Regards,

Dr. Linda Hope

Principal


First rate bs. If it wasn’t being taught until October, why was it up day one? Front and center for any student to see all day every day? Until and through October? Who created the quite large display and plastered the word ISLAM on the wall? 

Kansas: The Five Pillars of Islam in another elementary school

They left out the sixth pillar – JIHAD. via The PJ Tatler » The Five Pillars of Islam — in Kansas.

Students at Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet Elementary School in Wichita, Kansas, were greeted with this on the wall Wednesday:

islam

The questions presents themselves: First, why would a school in the middle of the Bible Belt present something like this? Second, will they give the same pride of place to Christianity? Judaism? Mormonism? Zoroastrianism? Third, where is the ACLU? They have been quick to sue over so-called establishment clause issues in school in the past, so why are they not hammering Minneha Core Knowledge Magnet Elementary School for this outrageous promotion of religion?

I will, of course, be making inquiries.

The response will be the same and those who question this infiltration and dawah will be branded racist, Islamophobes. Better to be wrongly labeled an Islamophobe than rightly labeled a dhimmi.

It’s not the only elementary school that ambushed unsuspecting students with Islamic propaganda that we know about. It also happened in Tennessee: Five Pillars of Islam in public school. where another public school banned pork to appease Muslims.

Folks, if you think it’s bad now – what do you think it will be like in ten or twenty years when the Muslim population quadruples from where it is now?
