Minnesota: Obama DOJ Sues to Force Another Mosque on America, City Fights Back

Another mosque from which to recruit Muslims to wage jihad.

Not the first time terror-friendly Eric Holder’s Dept. of Jihad has done this.

Creeping Sharia told you about the situation in St. Anthony back in 2012 and even warned that Americans didn’t stand a chance against the Feds & Hamas-CAIR, in Feds assist terror-linked CAIR to force mosque on Minn. town.

The latest via Obama’s DOJ Sues Minnesota City for Rejecting Islamic Center.

The Department of Justice has announced that it is suing the small town of St. Anthony, Minnesota, after a two-year investigation into the town’s denial of a permit to create an Islamic cultural center.

The DOJ claims that the north Minneapolis town broke a federal law when it rejected the center in 2012.

“An injustice has been done,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said on August 27. “I will not stand by while any religious group is subject to unconstitutional treatment that violates federal civil rights laws.”

Apparently Luger will stand by when Minnesota mosques are used to recruit Muslims to wage jihad abroad, when Muslims threaten to shoot up schools, and when millions of illegal aliens – including known murderers, gangsters, rapists and Islamic terrorists – waltz across the border. He’ll stand for all that.

The DOJ claims that the city violated the law when it refused the Abu Huraira Islamic Center the right to create an Islamic cultural center in the basement of the St. Anthony Business Center. The DOJ cites a violation of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act that was enacted in the year 2000.

In his press conference, Luger said that if local voters rose up to force their politicians to allow the Islamic center to be established and follow his interpretation of the law he would consider withdrawing the lawsuit.

Lugar may be putting hope in the wrong people, however, as many voters actually spoke out against the center at a city council meeting in June of 2012.

But the city fathers insist that the decision to deny the permit is based solely on zoning issues and had nothing to do with religion.

“Religious uses of any type are allowed in the vast majority of the city,” City Attorney Jay Lindgren said. “They are just not allowed in the roughly 5 percent of the city reserved for industrial uses. … An industrial zone is designed to create jobs and be an economic engine.”

We have an entire category of this recurring theme of Muslims disregarding U.S. law titled Zoning jihad.

To buttress its case, the DOJ claimed that there were examples in the past of the city allowing some religious groups to use the zoned areas and also allowing non-industrial uses. But Lindgren said that the city has denied permits to religious sects other than Muslims in the past, proving, he said, that the town isn’t discriminating against Muslims.

“The city will vigorously defend its actions,” Lindgren insisted this week. “Doesn’t matter whether it’s a mosque, synagogue, church–none are allowed in the area intended for manufacturing and offices where jobs are put into place.”

Good for the city. Citizens should stand and fight with their elected officials as the federal bureaucrats continue to disregard states rights, the Constitution and any law they don’t like.

Minnesota: Second Muslim this week killed fighting for ISIS terrorists, 3rd seen in video

All from the same high school, and likely the same mosque, recruited by the same imams. via 2nd Minnesota man reportedly killed fighting for ISIS in Syria – KMSP-TV.

Sources tell Fox 9 News a second Minnesota family has received word that a man who left the Twin Cities has died fighting with the terror group ISIS in Syria.

At about 9 p.m. on Wednesday, leaders in the Somali-American community heard that State Department officials notified a Minneapolis family that a second American was found among the dead militants. According to Fox 9 sources, Abdiraaman Muhumed — who was the focus of an MPR story just two months ago — died in the same battle as Douglas McCain, a former Robbinsdale-Cooper High School student.

“Americans are being recruited in a litany of ways,” FBI investigator Kyle Loven told Fox 9 News. “Social media is a big way.”

A handful of Minnesotans are believed to be among the 100 or so Americans who have left the country to take up arms alongside militant extremists in Syria. Most of them are disaffected young men targeted by recruitment videos like the one put out by al-Shabaab, praising Minnesota’s “martyrs.” Troy Kastigar is among the Minnesota men who died fighting for that terror group in Somalia two years ago, but before that, he and McCain were schoolyard friends.

“Minnesotans should be concerned about that because we don’t want our young people to be misled, think one thing, find out it’s a different thing, and basically succumb to propaganda,” Loven said.

According to Abdi Bihi, a leader in the local Somali community, ISIS has recently begun trying to recruit young women from the Twin Cities to their cause as well.

“They are brainwashing them to marry them off to jihadists,” he said. “They call them to help out as nurses, help out the wounded — but the real catch is they will be sexually exploited.”

While the jihadists may see fighting as a path to paradise, Bihi said the only thing young people who take that path will face is disappointment, possibly even death.

“What will not change is the pain and agony and suffering of the parents,” he lamented.

<

p style=”padding-left:30px;”>Without the resources to create jobs, Bihi believes that disenchanted youths will continue to be vulnerable to Islamic extremists.

Repeated studies indicate that Muslim terrorists, particularly those from the U.S., are not poor nor uneducated. Quite the opposite. Yet, even if the opportunist Bibi – whom Fox News let hawk his money-seeking organization at the end of the article – was correct, Obama’s open door, no borders policy will make resources to create jobs all but impossible. And there will be millions more fighting for the lowest wage jobs pushing wages down even further. Amnesty and mass immigration, like Muslim immigration – a lose lose situation for all.

One wonders, how many of the Minnesota Muslims now waging jihad around the world are Muslims that Rep. Keith Ellison (D – Islam) ensured a safe return for after waging jihad in Somalia?

Update:

The U.S. government is tracking and gathering intelligence on as many as 300 Americans who are fighting side by side with the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria and are poised to become a major threat to the homeland, according to senior U.S. officials.

Minnesota: Mustafa Crime Family Busted in Multi-Million Dollar Theft Racket

via FBI — Mustafa Family Crime Ring Indicted for Using Thousands of Stolen Identities to Steal Cellular Telephones and Tablet Devices Worth Millions of Dollars. h/t Denise

20140812_crimeringgraphic01_33

According to the indictment and documents filed in court, from at least 2006 through 2014, JAMAL MUSTAFA directed the Organization to use stolen identity information to obtain cellular telephones and other mobile devices for the purpose of trafficking them throughout the United States and internationally. JAMAL MUSTAFA, KANAN MUSTAFA, NASER MUSTAFA, EDWAN MUSTAFA, NIZER MUSTAFA, BILAL MUSTAFA, TALAL MUSTAFA, and MOISES NAVARRO-CAZALES, owned and operated 13 mobile device stores in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. The Organization used these storefronts to buy devices that they knew had been illegally obtained, including purchasing thousands of cellular phones from runners and other persons who got the phones through robberies, burglaries, shoplifting, and fraud and identity-theft schemes.

With the assistance of AHMED SUNOQROT, the Organization moved inventory and money between their stores, which the Organization used as fronts to funnel the illicit proceeds of their criminal activity.

According to the indictment, the Organization paid runners who stole mobile devices or obtained them fraudulently by other means. CEDRIC CHAPPELL, DEANTRE-RICKEY-RENE SQUALLS, BLANYON TOE DAVIES, VICTOR TOMBEKAI DOE, YOLANDA COOMBS, CASWANA MILES, TIARA LIGON, MARQUIS TERELL MAGGIESFIELD, MARCUS PHILLIP COLEMAN, ROBERT RICHARD COLEMAN, and DANIELLE YVONNE COLEMAN, were each paid by the Mustafas to steal or fraudulently obtain mobile devices by contract or subscription fraud. They targeted stores like Best Buy, WalMart, Verizon outlets, T-Mobile stores, and online Apple stores.

As charged, various members of the Mustafa Family provided stolen or fraudulent identity information to the runners, including names, dates of birth, social security numbers, credit card numbers, passport information, and driver’s license numbers of victims. Some of the runners operated solely within Minnesota, while others travelled to Arizona, Idaho, North Dakota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Utah to obtain devices. The Organization arranged out-of-state travel for the runners and paid their expenses. One runner was arrested in Utah in 2013 with more than 80 counterfeit identification documents and genuine victim-information documents. This runner used those documents to open lines of credit at various retail outlets to make fraudulent device purchases.

The runners were instructed by the Mustafas to obtain phones by contract-fraud and subscription-fraud schemes. In such schemes, runners used real stolen identities to obtain cell phone contracts. At times, the runners obtained “family plans” or “business accounts.” In so doing, runners were sold phones at deeply discounted prices by the legitimate retailers. The full retail price of an iPhone 5s in the United States is approximately $648. Under a two-year contract, the same phone is sold for approximately $200. Runners then opened accounts entitling them to obtain as few as one discounted phone, and as many as 30. The runners then shipped or delivered the phones back to the Mustafas, via one of the thirteen Twin Cities storefronts, or shipped the phones to wholesalers in other states for sale overseas. A new iPhone 5s retails for between $1,000 and $1,200 overseas.

Other runners engaged in street-level violence or burglary to obtain phones. The Sunrise Group, a burglary ring that traveled throughout the Upper Midwest for the purpose of breaking into WalMart stores to steal cell phones, iPads, and other electronic devices, provided electronic devices to the Mustafa Family on several occasions. The Mustafa Family made requests of the Sunrise Group for large quantities of new phones, and would act as a fence for the stolen merchandise.

Read it all for more info and defendants.

The Powerline blog notes:

I find the FBI press release leaves a lot of questions hanging. The Star Tribune story by Paul McEnroe does likewise.

Having found a fertile source of cell phones on the campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, the Mustafa family victimized a lot of Minnesotans. And that’s not all! It appears to me that the indictment leading to yesterday’s roundup will be amended to add to the catalogue of crimes these people committed far and wide over “at least” an eight-year period

Minneapolis: The City That Offers Sharia-Compliant Loans to Muslims

The National Journal catches up to what Creeping Sharia told readers in 2010 and again in 2012. via The City That Offers Sharia-Compliant Loans to Muslim Business Owners – NationalJournal.com.

Inside the Karmel Square shopping mall in southwest Minneapolis, women wearing headscarves paint customers’ feet with henna. Others sell beaded caftans in narrow stalls. On the first floor, shopkeepers kneel toward Mecca to pray.

Somali entrepreneurs in the neighborhood have transformed an abandoned machinery warehouse into this bustling indoor bazaar. Karmel Square is one of several commercial districts they’ve revived in recent years with support from an unexpected ally: the city.

Since 2006, Minneapolis has loaned more than $1 million to Muslim business owners through a program that complies with sharia law, which prohibits Muslims from paying or earning interest in a financial transaction. The program, which is operated in partnership with the African Development Center, makes Minneapolis the only city in the country to offer Islamic financing at a time when states are trying to ban sharia from the courts. “Minneapolis is a very welcoming city,” says Kristin Guild, the city’s business development manager. “Because [Somali immigrants] wear headscarves, they are visible as entrepreneurs and people see that they are setting up businesses in our town and creating jobs.”

Minnesota is home to the country’s largest Somali community, which is predominantly Sunni Muslim. An estimated 32,000 people of Somali ancestry live in the state, and about one-third of them live in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, according to the latest census figures.

Islamic financing is a relatively new concept in the United States. Only a handful of banks and financial companies provide mortgages and loans that abide by sharia law. The Neighborhood Development Center in St. Paul created the first nonprofit model of riba-free financing in 2001 after Somali entrepreneurs voiced their concerns. It was immediately lambasted on right-wing radio. “They utterly missed the point, but I was a little bit nervous,” says Mihailo Temali, the center’s CEO. “We were the first in the nation.”

More recently, media coverage of a Minnesota homeownership program that provided Islamic financing options prompted then-Gov. Tim Pawlenty to shut it down.

Minneapolis business development staffers point out that their program is open to anyone, even non-Muslims.

Odd then that Alexia Campell’s titled her puff piece, “City That Offers Sharia-Compliant Loans to Muslim Business Owners.”

Immigrants from Morocco, Ethiopia, and other North African countries have brought commerce back to long-neglected neighborhoods, like Lake Street in Lyndale. Once a commercial corridor in the early 1900s, shops on Lake Street began closing as consumers moved to the suburbs.

With the help of the city’s program, more than 20 businesses are open again on Lake Street. “I think this will spread,” says Temali. “One of the most outstanding features of the United States is its long history of incorporating immigrants into the economy instead of excluding them.”

 Actually what made the United States outstanding was that immigrants assimilated into American culture, the so-called melting pot, rather than force their own individual cultures on everyone else.

Minnesota: Somali Voter Fraud Uncovered in Dem Race feat Muslim Candidate

This is the same campaign where Somali Muslims brawled abruptly ending Democratic caucus in February.via Allegations of Voter Fraud in Hotly Contested Minn. House DFL Primary Race | KSTP TV. h/t Refugee Resettlement Watch

Absentee voting started Friday, six weeks ahead of primary elections. Already there are strong allegations of voter fraud.

The attorney for Phyllis Kahn says he got word Thursday night; there might be hundreds of people who are registering and voting using an address that’s not their home.

Absentee voting kicked-off Friday morning in a hotly contested democratic primary race for the state house between incumbent Phyllis Kahn and Mohamud Noor.

Brian Rice, attorney for the Phyllis Kahn Volunteer Committee, claims there’s voter fraud.

“I think there is a coordinated effort to use this address to bring voters into the DFL primary election on August 12, that’s what I think is going on,” Rice said. “It’s wrong, it violates Minnesota Law, it’s a crime.”

According to voter registration records from the Secretary of State’s office and the DFL Voter Activation Network more than 140 people used 419 Cedar Avenue South in Minneapolis as their home address, when they registered to vote.

The address is for what’s called Cedar Mailbox Center. The building manager and mail center’s employees weren’t comfortable speaking on camera, but they said they were surprised by the allegations.

They say nobody put the wrong address on purpose. For 13 years, many Somali-Americans from all across the state have been getting their mail there. They say nobody lives there.

“We’re asking for an investigation under laws that exist to get to the bottom of this matter,” Rice said.

Under state law, you must live in the precinct where you’re voting.

“It’s possible that some of these new registrants have already voted, and if they don’t live there, they’ve committed a felony,” Rice said.

Friday afternoon, Rice brought this to the attention of Hennepin County Election officials by serving this petition.

“If we don’t have integrity in our elections, we have nothing,” Rice said.

Hennepin County election officials confirm they have received the petition and they are looking into it. They said they will have a response in five days.

We reached out to the Mohamud Noor campaign for reaction to the petition that was filed, challenging voters at “419 Cedar avenue South.” They issued the following statement:

The Mohamud Noor for House campaign’s early voting program brought hundreds of voters to the polls today on the first day of early voting in the DFL primary in House District 60B. According to the City of Minneapolis Elections & Voter Services Division, 447 voters cast their ballot today, nearly 300 more votes cast than on the first day of early voting in the 2013 city elections. Campaign records show that the overwhelming majority of those 447 voters were brought to the polls by the Mohamud Noor campaign. The campaign’s dozens of volunteers ran shuttles and busses from around the district to encourage voters to cast their ballot early.

Mohamud Noor, candidate for Minnesota House said, “Today has been an incredibly exciting day. This campaign is bigger than just me, it’s about getting everyone engaged in the democratic process. It has been truly inspiring to see so many people get involved and get out to vote today.”

Noor went on to say, “So many people have told me their stories of how my campaign has made them feel empowered to take part in the political process for the first time, people like Muna Muse from Seward. Muna has been a citizen for almost a decade and today she exercised her right to vote for the very first time. I’m so honored that she voted for me, but also that our campaign was able to energize new DFL voices to re-elect Governor Dayton and Senator Franken.”

Responding to the petition filed by former Kahn campaign manager Brian Rice, Mohamud Noor said, “I categorically deny any assertion of wrongdoing on the part of my campaign, and I welcome an investigation into the baseless allegations raised by Brian Rice. Allegations of fraud are serious and must be investigated thoroughly. My campaign is committed to a transparent and inclusive process for all voters and I am extremely proud of the work done by all of my campaign’s volunteers to further the goal of a free, fair, and safe election for everyone in the district. My campaign has focused on voter turnout and education; because of the high rate of participation by East Africans in elections, we have carried out no voter registration campaigns, contrary to the implications of Mr. Rice.”

 

Minnesota: At least 15 Muslims leave U.S. to wage jihad in Syria

Traitorous Keith Ellison has done nothing to stop the jihadi breeding going on in Minnesota. via American Muslims flocking to jihadist group | New York Post. h/t TROP

Radicalized young American Muslims — including as many as 15 Somali-born Minnesotans — have flocked to a jihadist group in recent months, lured by rap videos and hip social-media propaganda.

Security experts are calling it the “Jihad Cool” rebranding of terrorism, and say it’s highly effective in pushing Americans like Abdirahmaan Muhumed, a Twin Cities father of nine, to high-tail it to Syria to help the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant topple President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

“I give up this worldly life for Allah,” Muhumed said of joining the Islamic State in a Facebook message earlier this year. If people call him a terrorist, he’s “happy with it,” he added.

While not fighting, Muhumed has been busy posting images of himself online, showing himself smiling into the camera while holding an AK-47 and throwing the jihadi equivalent of a gang sign — pointing his index finger skyward. Another image appears to show the head of a deceased male.

The trend was first reported by Minnesota Public Radio.

The FBI would not name the 15 radicalized Minnesotans, except to confirm that Muhumed is among them, and that the agency is investigating how they were recruited.

 They were recruited by other Muslims in Minnesota, likely in mosques.

Keith Ellison petitions Congress for jailed Muslim Brotherhood member

Earlier this week, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour shamelessly shilled for the Muslim Brotherhood. @CausingFitna found Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison taking it a step further and entering a statement into the Congressional record in support of Muslim Brotherhood activist and Hamas-terrorist supporter Mohamed Soltan. Meanwhile, Ellison’s Muslim constituents continue to flee the U.S. to wage jihad in foreign lands.

Patrick Poole also caught the Egyptian Press Syndicate shilling for the jailed Muslim Brotherhood member who had previously resided in the U.S.

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero
