Texas: Muslim arrested fleeing to Jordan after hit-and-run, lawyer seeks sharia

via Man indicted in Arlington hit-and-run that injured elderly man | Crime and Safety |  h/t LUTBOI

A 25-year-old man who police say tried to flee to Jordan after being involved in a hit-and-run accident that seriously injured an Arlington man has been indicted on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Omar Bashir Mohammed was released from custody March 13, jail records say, after his attorney, Jim Shaw, posted $250,000 bail in the Arlington case and after being released from an immigration hold.

Shaw said that despite Mohammed’s arrest at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, his client is not a flight risk.

“He just freaked out and got some bad advice from elders,” Shaw said.

At his mosque no doubt.

The four-count indictment, returned by a grand jury Monday, accuses Mohammed of recklessly driving his car off the road on Feb. 15 and striking Terry Pinkston, 73, then fleeing.

Police have said Pinkston was hit from behind about 7:30 a.m. while walking on a sidewalk in the 2400 block of Ascension Boulevard, not far from the apartment complex where Mohammed and his wife live.

Pinkston suffered a head injury and puncture wound in the leg, according to an arrest warrant affidavit, and was later found to have broken ribs, pelvis and vertebrae at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth. He was released from the hospital four days later.

Pinkston said he was out on his routine walk when he was struck.

“I didn’t have my doggie with me that afternoon,” he said. “It was cold that Saturday. He stayed in bed with Mama.”

The affidavit alleges after the wreck, Mohammed parked his damaged Honda Civic at his father’s home on Slaughter Street, saying he was having transmission problems.

He then drove his father’s vehicle for several days before being arrested by DFW Airport police and U.S. Customs agents the night of Feb. 22 while attempting to board a plane to Jordan.

Shaw said his client is college-educated, is working to further his education and is married to an American woman. He said Mohammed is wearing an ankle monitor while free on bail and is “so remorseful” for what he’s done.

“In Muslim law, when your family does harm to another family, one of the first things you do is the oldest goes over there and visits and offers help or gifts or remuneration for anything you’ve done and apologizes,” Shaw said. “My client wants to know, ‘When can I do that?’ ”

Texas: Muslim killed daughter & her lesbian lover, left Koran open to verse condemning homosexuality

via Texas dad killed daughter, her lesbian lover because he disliked that she was gay: mom – NY Daily News.

A Texas dad disgusted with his daughter’s lesbian lifestyle murdered the young woman and her lover, the girl’s mother said in a shocking twist to a gruesome case.

James Cosby, 46, bludgeoned his daughter Britney Cosby to death and shot her lover, Crystal Jackson, on March 6 before dumping the bodies near the ferry gate in Port Bolivar, Texas, police believe.

The bodies were found near a Dumpster around 7:30 a.m. the next day outside a Fisherman’s Cove food mart.

Both women were 24.

Britney’s mother told KHOU-TV that Cosby was angry his daughter was gay.

“He said it to me a few times that he did not like the idea of her being gay,” Loranda McDonald told the TV station. “But, like I told him, there’s nothing we could do about that. That’s who she is. We can’t change her lifestyle.”

Capital murder charges are pending against James Cosby, a registered sex offender released from prison in October, Galveston Sheriff Office Capt. Barry Cook told the Daily News. The murder weapons have not been recovered and Britney Cosby’s recently purchased 2006 Kia Sorento is still missing.

Cosby moved in to the home only in October after he was released following a two-year stint in prison. His daughter and her grandmother lived at the home and let him move in.

In his bedroom, which Cook described as a converted garage, the murder suspect had a copy of the Koran open to a page which talks about homosexuality as a sin, family advocate Quanell X told KHOU. The find may give some insight into Cosby’s disturbed mindset, the advocate said.

“It’s quite unfortunate but he had a real, real warped understanding, in my opinion, of the religion of Islam and its position on the gay lifestyle and what one should do,” Quanell X said.

Police, though, say they are still searching for a motive in the gruesome crime.

“We don’t know (that their sexual orientation) was a contributing factor to their deaths,” Cook said. “We haven’t ruled it out, but we haven’t proved it, either.”

Cops may also be looking for a second suspect. James Cosby, described as standing 6-feet-5, was much taller than the man captured on surveillance cameras in Bolivar dumping the bodies. A police composite sketch also shows a man who looks slightly different, Cook said.

But Britney Cosby’s mother is certain her ex was involved. She said she left the man because of his violent tendencies.

He served 10 years after a 1994 sexual assault and then two more, ending in October, for failing to register as an offender.

“I think they should lock him up, don’t let him out,” McDonald told KHOU-TV. “Give him the chair, I want him to suffer.”

h/t Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch who writes:

Warped in what way?In which version of Sharia does Islamic law not mandate death for lesbians?The Qur’an says:

“Those who commit unlawful sexual intercourse of your women – bring against them four [witnesses] from among you. And if they testify, confine the guilty women to houses until death takes them or Allah ordains for them [another] way.” (4:15) The “other ways” that Allah has ordained for them all involve death.

Yet nonetheless, even though Cosby left the Qur’an open to a passage condemning homosexuality, “police, though, say they are still searching for a motive in the gruesome crime.”

That is the very definition of willful ignorance.

Last year, almost wholly ignored by major media, we posted Nebraska: Muslim attacks relative with crowbar over lesbian engagement (ie, attempted honor killing).

 

Fort Hood tears down site of 2009 jihad massacre

h/t Jihad Watch who writes:

And one thing is certain: whatever memorial is constructed there will say nothing whatsoever about why Hasan murdered these people — as if a Pearl Harbor memorial said, “Random airplane pilots spontaneously and for no discernible reason decided to attack Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.”

Fort-Hood-Shooting-Building.JPEG-0ca41

A Texas Army post has razed the building where a former psychiatrist carried out one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history, with plans to put up trees and a memorial in its place.

Fort Hood officials said Tuesday that they have torn down Building 42003, the site of a 2009 massacre that left 13 people dead and more than 30 wounded.

The building was part of a processing center complex for soldiers deploying and returning from combat. On Nov. 5, 2009, then-Maj. Nidal Hasan carried two weapons inside, shouted “Allahu Akbar!” — “God is great” in Arabic — and opened fire on soldiers waiting for vaccines and paperwork.

As soldiers and civilians tried to take cover, Hasan walked through the building, targeting anyone in a green Army uniform. He left pools of blood and spent ammunition in his wake. He was eventually confronted outside the building by Fort Hood police officers, who shot him and paralyzed him from the waist down.

Hasan was convicted in August of charges related to the massacre and sentenced to death. He is on death row at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., while his case goes through a review at Fort Hood before it enters a series of mandatory appeals.

The building was sealed off for nearly four years until post officials announced in November that they would demolish it.

Fort Hood officials, who declined to be interviewed, plan to place trees, a gazebo and a memorial plaque at the site.

Not all victims and their relatives agree with them. Kathy Platoni, an Army reservist who saw her friend, Capt. John Gaffaney, bleed to death, was one of the people who called on Fort Hood to keep the building standing as a reminder of what happened.

Platoni found out about the demolition Tuesday in a mass email from the post.

While post spokesman Chris Haug said he believed family members and victims were consulted about what to do with the site, Platoni said Army officials had not asked her opinion.

Platoni mentioned other points of contention between the Army and the Fort Hood victims, including a prolonged fight for increased benefits and recognition due to what many victims say is a terrorist attack, despite the Army’s insistence that the shooting was an act of workplace violence.

“For the building in which this horrific event took place just to be wiped off the map before we have a say in what’s done with it seems like another slap in the face,” Platoni told The Associated Press Tuesday afternoon.

Will the memorial be hijacked by Muslim interests as the Flight 93 memorial has been? Will the site become a “chapel” complete with Islamic prayer room?

Houston: Muslim hired Muslim classmate to kill “strict Muslim mother”

via Houston man, 21, reportedly admits hiring high school classmate to kill mother in 2009 to escape strict parenting – CBS News. h/t LUTBOI

A Houston man has admitted to hiring a classmate to kill his mother in 2009, reports CBS affiliate KHOU.

Prosecutors said Danish Minhas, 21, a former class president at his high school, wanted to escape his mother’s strict rules, reports the station.

Minhas was set to go on trial Monday and could have faced life in prison if convicted, reports the Houston Chronicle. Instead, he pleaded guilty to murder in exchange for 50 years in prison, reports the paper.

Minhas was 17 in 2009 when prosecutors say he hired a classmate, Nur Mohamed, 18, to kill his mother Tabassum Khan. Minhas approached Mohamed about the plot in Spanish class, Mohamed  has reportedly testified.

Danish Minhas, left, Nur Mohamed, right, KHOU

 Mohamed sneaked into Khan’s southwest Houston apartment in November 2009 and stabbed the 43-year-old woman to death, reports the station.Minhas admitted to paying Mohamed $4,000, reports the Chronicle.

Mohamed reportedly pleaded guilty last year and was sentenced to 40 years after agreeing to testify against Minhas, the Chronicle reports.

Connie Bowen, a friend of victim Khan, told KHOU that Khan had a troubled relationship with her son, who was on the honor roll at his high school and was known to make announcements over the school’s public address system.

“She said enough to let me know that she was having major problems with him,” Bowen told the station. “He didn’t care about her. He was always getting mad at her because she gave him rules.”

Minhas also repeatedly demanded money from his mother, Bowen said.

“She tried to give him everything he wanted, but she didn’t make very much money,” Bowen told the station.

Investigators have said Minhas resented his mother’s strict parenting.

“Danish felt he was a man and he did not like the restrictions his mother had placed on him,” homicide Sgt. Brian Harris told the station in 2010.

Harris called the victim a “strict Muslim mother who followed her faith… no different from any other parent regardless of what faith or background they are, who set out rules for their children to follow.”

How does Harris know that the mother was no different than any other parent regardless of faith? Sounds like Harris went out of his way to defend Islam. The article is only missing the “had nothing to do with Islam” statement.

In a 2010 interview, Minhas told KHOU he confessed to a crime he didn’t commit and placed blame for the killing on Mohamed.

“She was the perfect mom,” he told the station. “She raised me and my sister as being a single parent. She has been both a mother and a father to us. She went beyond her duties of being a mother to take care of me.”

Univ of Houston (Muslim) students receive more (halal) food options

Read the vague and unassuming title below. Then read the story. Then reread the title and tell us what is missing from the title. Hint, it’s in parenthesis above.

via Students receive more food options – The Daily Cougar.

The University’s Dining Services is looking into adding more health-conscious foods to the campus menu including adding a halal station to the dining halls — in order to comply with students’ requests for healthier cuisine.

Which students?

A halal tasting and focus group is scheduled for April 1 at the Fresh Foods Company in Moody Towers, and Campus Dietician Sarah Feye said preparations for the event are already underway.

“When we host our halal focus group, we’ll be testing a few recipes and products,” Feye said. “We’re leaning toward offering some traditional Middle Eastern dishes, as well as some college staple recipes that have proven to be popular over the years.”

Halal staples proven to be popular? Where? According to whom?

Halal is food that follows Islamic dietary laws, meaning it cannot contain pork or alcohol. Tandoori Nite is the only restaurant on campus to offer a fully halal menu. Some food trucks, specifically Coreanos and Third Coast Steak Sandwiches, offer halal chicken upon request. No other location on campus offers halal meats.

In November, the Student Government Association passed a resolution in support of adding halal food and healthier options to the campus menu. One of the concerns noted in the final draft of the resolution was that “there is a sizeable population of Muslim students attending the University of Houston, and Muslim students are hesitant to stay on campus due to lack of halal food options.”

Muslim students are threatening to leave campus? Because there is no sharia food?

Biology freshman Umme Hani Abbas lives on campus and echoed this concern.

There is a huge Muslim population on campus. There are so many Muslim people, and no one eats anything except halal meats,” Abbas said. “So I go to the Fresh Food Company. I can get cheese pizza and a salad. They have a vegetarian section, but there are not a lot of options there.”

Pack your own #$%ing lunch like most people do if they don’t like the food options.

SGA’s November resolution wasn’t the only time students’ dining concerns made their way into the Senate. SGA has made multiple attempts throughout the years to address students’ concerns about adding halal, kosher and overall healthier foods to the campus menu. In 2007, SGA passed a resolution to increase the amount of kosher and halal foods. That same year, Aramark, the University’s food service provider, began selling microwaveable kosher and halal meals at food markets around campus.

Retail Food Service Director Misty Pierce said the items were not popular and were later removed from store shelves.

“Unfortunately, a kosher or halal TV dinner doesn’t exactly fit the needs of the students. We have found that primarily the students that shop in those little markets are looking for the chips and dips and things like that,” Pierce said. “So we’re actually trying to expand into our actual food locations to what they can offer.”

How much further can these people bend over for Muslims?

The second phase of the New UC will open in 2015, and with it will come Freshii, an alternative to traditional fast-food restaurants. Freshii is a halal-friendly establishment; however, it does not offer halal meats.

Halal-friendly? Is that sharia-friendly?

“Freshii will have many vegetarian and vegan meals. These nutrient-packed, plant-based menu items naturally fit into a halal diet,” Feye said.

Feye said she is excited about the new food options coming to campus. According to Feye, the halal tasting and focus group is just one step in a long process to ensure “the best halal food program possible.” Students will have more health-conscious foods to choose from in the coming months.

Just one step? How many other steps backwards are being taken?

Apparently diversity is a great and wonderful thing but when fees are spent on only one group of students, it must be veiled (pun intended) so as not to single out that one group and appear intended for all students.

PS: Yes, the Muslim Brotherhood-founded MSA is present on UH campus.

Texas: FBI documents confirm terror-linked Islamic compound “Mahmoudberg”

via Exclusive: Islamist Terror Enclave Discovered in Texas

A Clarion Project investigation has discovered a jihadist enclave in Texas where a deadly shooting took place in 2002. Declassified FBI documents obtained by Clarion confirm the find and show the U.S. government’s concern about its links to terrorism. The investigation was completed with help from ACT! For America Houston.

The enclave belongs to the network of Muslims of the Americas, a radical group linked to a Pakistani militant group called Jamaat ul-Fuqra. Its members are devoted followers of Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, an extremist cleric in Pakistan.

A 2007 FBI record states that MOA members have been involved in at least 10 murders, one disappearance, three firebombings, one attempted firebombing, two explosive bombings and one attempted bombing.

The MOA compound in Texas, described by the FBI as an “enclave” and “communal living site,” is in Brazoria county along County Road 3 near Sweeny. It was discovered by the FBI due to a tip from an informant in New York.

According to the reports, the commune is seven to 10 acres large, is in an “extremely wooded area” and two or three trailer homes moved there in December 2001. However, ACT members visited the area as part of Clarion’s investigation and interviewed one nearby local who confidently said it is closer to 25 acres in size and spoke of a presence dating back to the late 1980s.

Read it all including shootings at the site, an FBI raid and why MOA/JUF is allowed to operate in the United States.

Update:

another member of the MOA compound in Sweeny is a police officer for the nearby city of Freeport; his name is Hussein Jones.

More than thirty years ago, the Islamic Association of North Texas (IANT) was established to serve the local Muslim community. Since then, our community has grown considerably, and so have our needs. As we inaugurate our next quarter-century in North Texas, we introduce a novel community idea: the Islamic Village Project, a Muslim neighborhood.”

 Project Overview

The Islamic Village Project is a multi-million dollar project that will foster great change in the Muslim community of Dallas. It will house a senior center, Youth center, Social Services department, residential quarters, play area for the children, retail center, clinic, and a separate building for IQA and Suffa Islamic Seminary classes. The project will extend from the current Masjid facility at Abrams, on the North and South side of Spring Valley across from the masjid, and West towards Greenville.

Educational Complex

One of the cornerstones of the Islamic Village will be it Educational Complex housing our IANT Quranic Academy and Suffa Islamic Seminary under the leadership of Imam Yusuf Ziya Kavakci. In addition, the Educational Complex is expected to have a Youth Center, Day Care Facilities, and playground areas for children of all ages.

Where is IANT?

*Updates:

IANT is also known as the Dallas Central Mosque (DCM). The  DCM has been described in a 1999 article in a Counterterrorism Journal as:

… considered to be one of the most active centers of Hamas activity in the United States and hosts the leadership and members of both the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP) and the Holy Land Foundation (HLF). Both organizations are the primary conduits for Hamas activity and fundraising in the United States. (See Note 2)

A reader also informed us that:

Nabil Elibiary is the Director of Islamic Association of North Texas, Incorporated

Nabil’s past corporate interests include the Member of The Islamic Association of Carrollton, Inc.

If the name Elibiary sounds familiar it might be because it is also the name of an infamous Muslim from the Richardson, Texas area who is now a member of the Department of Homeland Security – despite having illegally accessed (i.e., stolen) data from a classified database. That Elibiary recently claimed:

It appears that the director of IANT, the group building a Muslim neighborhood, is the father of the DHS advisor:

My oldest son Mohamed Elibiary became politically active, and started a political empowerment organization, for Muslims and non-Muslims “The Freedom and Justice Foundation (F&J)”

The Freedom and Justice party is also the name of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

Is the picture getting clearer?

Texas: Muslim Sharia Group to Train 200 U.S. Imams

They’ve been doing this at least since 2010 when we posted, Texas: 200 imams taught how to run sharia courts. In fact, Texas has a sharia court.

In 2012, the State Dept Trained 450 Imams. And we know the State Dept has its own Syrian-born imam.

In 2014, Islamist Jurisprudence Group to Train 200 U.S. Imams:

By Ryan Mauro

The California-based Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) is holding a conference in Texas next month where it hopes to educate 200 imams. AMJA is an anti-American Salafist group that supports abuse of women, violent jihad and the stealthy imposition of sharia in the U.S.

AMJA’s 11th Annual Imams Conference will be held on February 21-23 in Dallas, Texas with the theme, “Islamic Home Finance in the West.” The subject is part of Sharia Finance, or economics that comply with sharia.

The organization says it has already had 150 imams sign up and it has a maximum capacity of 200. Imams lead mosques and Islamic centers and are seen as the local authority on the faith, so AMJA’s teachings can impact thousands of Muslims in North America.

It instructs Muslims to infiltrate positions of power for the subversive purpose of incrementally implementing sharia. In one translated document, AMJA says Muslim judges in non-Muslim countries must “judge by the rulings of the Sharia as much as possible, even if by a ruse.”

AMJA also supports violent jihad.

Provided by the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Northern District of Texas

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans, Louisiana, issued a nine-page published opinion yesterday affirming the conviction and sentence of Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.

Aldawsari was convicted on June 27, 2012, on an indictment charging one count of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction in connection with his purchase of chemicals and equipment necessary to make an improvised explosive device (IED) and his research of potential U.S. targets, including persons and infrastructure. He was lawfully in the U.S. on a student visa and enrolled at South Plains College, near Lubbock, Texas.

In its opinion, the Court rejected each of Aldawsari’s arguments, holding that (1) the district court properly denied his motion to suppress evidence gathered pursuant to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act; (2) the district court correctly instructed the jury on the crime of attempt; and (3) Aldawsari’s sentence is reasonable. The opinion was released less than two months after the three-judge panel heard oral argument in the case.

Social Studies Textbook Review in Tennessee and Texas

Readers frequently ask how they can get involved. Here’s one. via Citizen Warrior: Social Studies Textbook Review in Tennessee and Texas.

The following was written by Roy White, Chapter Coordinator for ACT! for America in San Antonio, Bexar, and Kendall:

We all know of plenty of examples of the bias in social studies textbooks revealed by various groups and individuals. Concerned Tennessee citizens formed a group called Textbook Advocates that conducted reviews of over 50 textbooks that can be found here. Many of those errors involved Islam to include incomplete information on Muhammad, overstating Islam’s influence and simple disparity in word/sentence count on discussions of Islam versus other religions. Their findings are not surprising to readers of Citizen Warrior and others who follow this topic.

The cleverly named, The Textbook Tattler was published to provide citizens with a synopsis of the typical errors found. It is likely these same errors are found in many of the textbooks found in states around the country. Tennessee’s efforts resulted in the current methodology of textbook selection to be under review and will most likely be replaced in the next legislative session. Their landmark success has inspired others to follow their lead including a group in Texas.

In early 2014 Texas begins the process of reviewing Social Studies textbooks that will be used for the 2015-16 school year. A group called “Truth in Texas Textbooks” or “Triple T” have begun recruiting volunteers from inside of Texas and outside who would be willing to help review the Social Studies textbooks that will be submitted by publishers.

Over 48 million textbooks are sold in Texas alone! This is a huge contract for publishers. Estimates range from 50-80% of school districts in the nation choose the same textbooks as those used in Texas schools. Publishers know, what sells in Texas will lead to millions of dollars in other states!

The purpose of TTT is simple, to provide Social Studies textbooks that are truthful and factual that meet the Texas Education Knowledge Standards (TEKS) as defined here. Fortunately Texas has put in place a well-defined set of standards that were recently updated with this resolution on eliminating the pro-Islamic/anti-Christian bias found in the current social studies textbooks.

TTT will not simply focus on eliminating this bias but many other “PC” related themes that are so often found in textbooks today. We are not affiliated with any other NPO or national organization but are independent and have reached out to groups and individuals around the country (including Tennessee) for volunteers who are willing to help us.

The long-term goal would be to have one site, such as www.textbookadvocates.com be the single depository of these textbook reviews being done around the country so teachers, parents, advocates can have a single one stop shopping place to go and see a consolidated list of reviews of textbooks.

Publishers get away with their PC tainted textbooks because in the past groups around the country didn’t talk to each other or communicate their findings. Building on what Tennessee has done Texas wishes to continue this movement to put these reviews, along with others, in the public domain at a single website that will give information to everyone who is interested.

Anti-smokers advocacy groups weren’t effective until they banded together against the tobacco companies and shared the data from all their findings. TTT wishes to take the same approach.

Read it all, including info for those who’d like to volunteer on the project, at Citizen Warrior.

Texas: Fort Worth PD sends recruits to mosque

With terror-linked CAIR. via Fort Worth Police Department’s outreach and friendship in the Muslim community

It was supposed to be another quiet Monday morning at the Islamic Association of Tarrant County, also known as the Ibrahimi Mosque. Located in a quiet urban neighborhood in Fort Worth, the mosque on Diaz Street is only a few years old, but the Muslim community that attends its services has been around for several decades. Except on Muslim holidays and Fridays, IATC has no traffic outside the five daily prayers times. But yesterday morning was an out-of-the ordinary Monday. IATC hosted a multicultural training event for the Fort Worth Police Department. Over 60 police trainees attending the Police Academy and their officers marched in the building, had lunch with a few Muslim members, toured the mosque, and attended a multicultural presentation about American Muslims.

An unusual event like this didn’t come by chance; indeed, the Fort Worth Police Department has been preparing for this initiative for the past two years.

In other words, for at least two years, Muslims have been working to submit the Fort Worth police department. And they finally did. After all, Islam means submission – not peace.

Photos of the event pretty much sum that up. The leaders of dhimmitude and dawah. Smiling.

Dallas: FBI renews search for Muslim who shot teen daughters to death

said-fbi

via Dallas FBI renews search for Egyptian man wanted for double murders.

The Dallas FBI is renewing its search for Yaser Abdel Said, an Egyptian national who allegedly murdered his two teenage daughters in Irving in 2008. The bureau is now offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to Said’s arrest.

January 1, 2014, will mark the sixth anniversary of the girls’ deaths. On New Year’s Day in 2008, Said is believed to have taken his daughters Amina (18) and Sarah (17) for a ride in his taxi. Both girls were shot to death inside the cab, which was found in Irving.

nyc_victims_said

The Irving police issued a capital murder warrant for Said’s arrest in January, but he has never been apprehended. In August 2008, the FBI issued another warrant alleging unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. The last confirmed sighting of Said dates back to 2008 in Irving.

Said is 56 years old, 6-feet-2-inches tall, and 180 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He often sports a mustache, though he may have shaved it (as well as his head) to conceal his identity.

The FBI says Said frequents diners such as Denny’s and IHOP, smokes Marlboro Lights 100s and could be working as a taxi driver. In addition to ties in the Dallas area and Egypt, Said is also connected to New York City and Canada.

Said is believed to be armed and dangerous. Anyone with information should contact the Dallas FBI at 972-559-5000 or tips.fbi.gov. Tipsters may remain anonymous.

A joint effort between Dallas and NY as there have been reports he’s living in New York City. From the FBI website: FBI New York Assists Dallas Field Office in Search.

Mohamed Elibiary: Countering or Enabling Violent Extremism?

It’s a rhetorical question.

elibiary-admissionvia Jake Calvert at The Lawfare Project Blog.

The mainstream media has long avoided open discourse on one of the most controversial and important issues of our times: Muslim Brotherhood and Islamist terror sympathizers in the U.S. government. Case in point, the minimal attention brought to Mohamed Elibiary, a senior homeland security advisor with demonstrable sympathy for the Islamic fundamentalist cause. Elibiary has publicly voiced his support for Shukri Abu Baker, who was convicted in a criminal court for financing terrorist organizations including the likes of Hamas. Equally disturbing is Elibiary’s associations with the Assembly of Muslim Jurists, who actively seek the implementation of sharia law in the United States, as well as pursuing Islamic jihad against the State of Israel. Furthermore, he has made public his personal relationship with, and support for, the Muslim Brotherhood. Only one week ago, Elibiary tweeted: “America and yes I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution. Move On!”

Even more worrying, however, is Elibiary’s ability to manipulate the policy of U.S. government and security measures in accordance with his questionable agenda. For instance, he sat on the committee that produced the Department for Homeland Security Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Training guidelines, which (amongst other things) specifically discouraged training about lawfare. In the guidelines, security agencies are instructed not to train “premised on theories with little or no evidence to support them”—for instance, the theory that “Muslim Americans are using democratic processes, like litigation and free speech, to subvert democracy and install Sharia law.”

Except that there is ample evidence supporting this theory! As has been reported and analyzed extensively by The Lawfare Project, Islamist organizations operating within the United States have filed countless frivolous lawsuits against individuals who bravely report on entities’ ties with terrorist groups with the purpose of intimidating these speakers into silence. Ironically, the CVE guidelines are better suited to hinder, rather than strengthen, the U.S. government’s ability to counter violent extremism.

The real question is: Why is the Arab media more concerned than the U.S. media about Mohamed Elibiary’s Islamist ties?

In October, Clarion Project published 15 disturbing facts about Elibiary taken from the lengthy report. One fact specifically mentioned in the Arab television segment is that Elibiary is linked to the Holy Land Foundation, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood front that was shut down for financing Hamas.

The Egyptian show was also shocked by our report on how the Department of Homeland Security issued training guidelines that shield Elibiary’s U.S. Muslim Brotherhood allies and sideline their Muslim and non-Muslim opponents.

Since the publication of our interview, it has been discovered that Elibiary used to be an official of the Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation.

Texas: Wesleyan gives Muslims prayer room, now they want Islamic footwash

From the East cost to Texas, it creeps. A United Methodist institution, inshallah!

Note the oddest of titles for this piece by Rosy Perez. What is an interfaith student and how does a Muslim prayer room provide an outlet anyone but Muslims? Feel free to ask her or leave a comment at the link. via Prayer Room provides outlet for interfaith students : The Rambler.  h/t Halalporkshop

Mohammed Khalid M. Alshafei, president of the Saudi Students Club at Wesleyan, had a meeting in 2012 with President Frederick Slabach asking for a prayer room to be provided as prayer is very important for the Saudi culture.

It is quite common for Saudi students to pray about five times a day, three of those times during classes or school.

“The reasons for this (prayer room) are twofold,” said Rev. Dr. Robert K. Flowers, Wesleyan chaplain. “One, to show hospitality to our foreign students and, two, our campus needs to be open and tolerant of other faith traditions whether it is Islam, Hindu, Jewish, or otherwise.”

The prayer room was established in 2012 and is located in the Morton Fitness Center.

The prayer room also has to face toward the Ka’ba shrine in Mecca for Islamic observances, according to www.religionfacts.com.

According to thereligionofpeace.com, Muslims have committed nearly 22,000 terrorist acts since 9/11.

Another thing the Islamic students perform before praying is the washing of hands and feet.

“We have to be cleaned before we pray,” said Alshafei. “We believe that when we pray, we will be between the hands of God.”

Islamic pray starts in the standing position and moves through several postures and ends with the taslima (greeting) meaning “Peace be upon you,” according to religionfacts.com.

When talking to Alshafei, he indicated many of his friends and classmates use the prayer room.

Currently, students who use the prayer room wash their hands and feet in the bathrooms of the Morton Fitness Center but the question of whether or not a different area should be used has come up in recent conversations.

Why not the areas of Mecca or Medina?
