Virginia: New Muslim Brotherhood Umbrella Group Holds Inaugural Banquet

This is the same Newly Formed Muslim (Brotherhood) Coalition that Seeks Greater Clout in U.S. Elections.

Participating organizations include high-profile groups that have been dogged by controversy, such as the Muslim American Society (MAS), founded by Muslim Brotherhood members, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which was named by the Justice Department in 2007 as “unindicted co-conspirators” in its case against the Holy Land Foundation in Texas, subsequently found guilty of raising money for Hamas.

The latest via the Brotherhood’s U.S. newspaper, New Umbrella Group Holds Inaugural Banquet.

The United States Council of Muslim Organization (USCMO) held its inaugural banquet at the Hilton In Crystal City, VA on June 10, 2014. The founding organizations had announced the formation of the umbrella council in March 2014; the banquet was the official introduction for the Muslim community to a platform that promises to open effective communication between Muslim organizations in America and build a national vision.

About 250 guests of the member organizations, leaders and imams of masajid, elected and government officials, dignitaries, civic and interfaith partners attended the banquet. Amongst them were Congressman Andre Carson, Congressman Keith Ellison, and Judge Hassan El Amin who also spoke on stage.

Zahra Billoo, the Executive Director CAlR-San Francisco and Dr. Altaf Hussain, Professor at Howard University emceed the event.

Oussama Jammal, the secretary general of the council introduced the mission of the council to the audience: bringing American Muslim organizations together.

Other speakers included Dr. Osama Abu-Irshaid, Nihad Awad, Naeem Baig, Mazen Mokhtar, Khalil Meek, Imam Delawar Hussein, Dr Lynne Muhammad and W.D. Mohammed II.

It was a who’s who of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. Search the archives to read details on any of these nefarious individuals or groups.

The Mosque Cares and the Nation’s Mosque were well represented at the banquet.

The keynote address was given by Dr Ihsan Bagby, of the University of Kentucky, who took the audience on a short sojourn through the history of American Muslims starting from the early Africans who were forcibly brought by slave traders to early immigrants to the present. He traced the history of other umbrella organizations that had formed and pointed out the reasons of their demise, urging the council to learn from their mistakes.

Imam Omar Suleiman represented the younger generation of leaders and spoke about what diversity and race relations means to his generation. He expressed great hope for the growth of the council.

The latest organizations to join the council are the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California, United Muslim Relief, VA and the Islamic Center of Wheaton, IL.

Membership application forms for non-profot organizations are now available on the USCMO website. The dues for voting member annual dues are $3,500 and associate member annual dues are $1,000.

Virginia: Two more Somali Muslims sentenced in attack on USS Ashland

via Last two Somalis get time in attack on Ashland | HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com.

A federal prosecutor said a Somali man convicted of piracy stood ready to launch a rocket-propelled grenade at a Navy ship four years ago.

The man, Mohamed Abdi Jama, was sentenced Thursday to 41-1/2 years in federal prison for his role in the April 2010 pirating attempt on the dock landing ship Ashland. Another Somali, Abdicasiis Cabaase, was sentenced to 42-1/2 years in prison for his role in the attack.

They were the last two of five Somalis convicted and sentenced this week for trying to hijack the Ashland.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Ben Hatch said Jama held an RPG that day, but that it was broken and incapable of firing. Still, the sailors didn’t know that. The captain may well have believed that the pirates were capable of blowing up the bridge, he said.

“It’s a very threatening weapon. I do believe he stood ready to perform,” Hatch said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office had sought life prison terms for each of the five Somalis, but the judge ruled that would violate the Constitution’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment. He equated the case to attempted hostage taking.

U.S. District Judge Raymond A. Jackson said the sentences handed out this week, though less than life, “send a message to those who commit piracy.”

It’s cruel and unusual punishment for Americans taxpayers to have to pay to feed, cloth and give special Islamic treatment to foreign Muslims who attack our sailors.

Report: Climate Change, Not Islam, is Catalyst for Terrorism, Arab Spring, Syrian War

via Report: Climate Change, Not Islam, Is Catalyst for Terrorism, Arab Spring, Syrian War.

The Center for Naval Analyses has released a report warning that climate change is a threat that, “much like terrorism or cyber-attacks,” is not limited by political boundaries and requires similar attention. The study also attributes major political events to climate change, such as the Arab Spring and the Syrian Civil War.

 The CNA’s military advisory board, consisting of a number of military leaders from various wings of the armed forces, concludes in the extended study that the United States must lead in preparedness for disasters caused by climate change and that the military in particular must invest resources to fight climate change. Those resources include extended work to facilitate navigation of the Arctic Ocean and investment in cleaner energy.

 “Actions by the United States and the international community have been insufficient to adapt to the challenges associated with projected climate change,” the coalition writes. It recommends that the military prepare to be called on to respond to a growing number of natural disasters, as well as prepare for “drought and flooding—and resulting food shortages, desertification, population dislocation and mass migration, and sea level rise,” which “are posing security challenges to these regions’ governments.”

 The report then goes on to blame climate change for a number of political phenomena that are notably linked by an obvious culprit: radical Islam. For example, it notes that “Syria’s ongoing conflict was preceded by five years of devastating droughts,” and that while they could not fully attribute the entirety of the regional stirrings known as the Arab Spring to climate change, “the impacts of climate change may also have served as catalysts for these conflicts.” It also adds climate change into the same “genre of threats” as “terrorism or cyber-attacks.”

Virginia: Saudi exchange student arrested in sexual assault of autistic girl

The girl’s mother – who was sexually involved with the attacker – has also been charged with helping him escape. via Saudi man, 20, wanted in Stafford is arrested | The News Desk. h/t LOOK UNDER THE BURKA

A man accused of sexual assault in Stafford County over the weekend was arrested Sunday as he was getting on a plane bound for Saudi Arabia, police said.

Hamad Mastour Alsuwat, 20, a Saudi citizen, is charged in Stafford with object sexual penetration, a felony that carries a potential life sentence.

According to Stafford Sheriff’s Office spokesman Bill Kennedy, the charge against Alsuwat stems from an incident Saturday at a county residence.

Deputy Thomas Grasso responded to the home and learned that a 17-year-old female resident had been sexually assaulted.1398113778000-Hamad-Alsuwat---Sex-Assault

Alsuwat, who had been staying at the home as a foreign exchange student, was gone when Grasso arrived.

After determining that Alsuwat was a foreign exchange student, Detective Tim Covington contacted the Department of Homeland Security.

Agents with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection later intercepted Alsuwat at Dulles International Airport as he was boarding a flight to his home country.

After verifying that he was the subject of the Stafford warrant, federal authorities turned Alsuwat over to Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority police for extradition.

 More: Mom charged after daughter’s alleged attacker tries to flee U.S.

The mother of an autistic 17-year-old Stafford County girl who was sexually assaulted Saturday has been accused of helping the teen’s attacker try to leave the country, court records show.

The victim’s mother, who is not being named to protect the victim’s identity, was arrested Sunday on a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice.

According to an affidavit for a search warrant filed in Stafford Circuit Court by Detective Tim Covington, the mother helped Alsuwat pack to leave the country while knowing that he was being investigated for the sexual assault of her daughter.

The affidavit states that Alsuwat had been living with the girl’s family in southern Stafford since Sept. 13.

The victim’s parents had gotten involved in a foreign exchange program and were providing Alsuwat with a room.

The victim told Covington that on Saturday, according to the affidavit, Alsuwat asked her to come into his room.

She said he then pushed her onto the bed and began kissing and sexually assaulting her, refusing to stop when she told him to. She estimated that the incident lasted about five minutes.

A short time later, her older sister showed up to take her to a birthday party. When the party was over and it was time to go home, the affidavit states that the girl became scared and told her sister what had happened.

The sister told the parents what the victim said, and an argument ensued because the mother was defending Alsuwat, court records state.

The husband told Covington that his wife had been standing up for Alsuwat since November, when he caught his wife and Alsuwat in the shed engaged in a sex act.

The man said he had been trying to get Alsuwat out of his home, but his wife wanted him to stay. It had been an ongoing issue prior to Saturday, the affidavit states.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection intercepted Alsuwat on Sunday after Covington contacted the Department of Homeland Security.

Alsuwat is being held in the Loudoun Adult Detention Center pending his return to Stafford.

Bill Clinton sent handwritten note to al Qaeda-linked Virginia mosque

via Bill Clinton sent handwritten note to al-Qaeda-linked mosque | The Daily Caller.

Democratic President Bill Clinton sent a handwritten note offering to work together with the chairman of a mosque that counted 9/11 hijackers as worshippers, senior al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki as an imam, and an al-Qaeda conspirator and would-be George W. Bush assassin as a teacher and camp counselor.

Clinton sent a handwritten note on official stationery in March 2000 to the chairman of the board of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, in response to a letter from the chairman. Clinton’s note was released as part of a document dump Friday by the Clinton presidential library.

 The note was marked “THE PRESIDENT HAS SEEN 3-10-00.”

 “I’m interested in all these suggestions. Let’s follow up,” Clinton said in the note, in which he also said that it would be good to have support from Muslims. Clinton signed the note “Bill.”

 The Dar Al-Hjrah Mosque was visited by FBI agents after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks after it was discovered that two 9/11 hijackers had worshipped at the mosque.

 The mosque’s imam from 1995 to 1999, prior to Clinton’s note, was Mohammed Al Hanooti, who was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing by a U.S. attorney. Al Hanooti defended an acquaintance that was deported and indicted for arranging financial support for the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.

Virginia: Lawmaker and one-time Obama admin defends his praise for 9/11 mosque

via Lawmaker defends his praise for 9/11 mosque.

Despite rebuke from counter-terrorism officials and the media, a former Obama appointee turned politician has doubled down on his controversial praise for the so-called 9/11 mosque outside the Washington suburbs, calling it “an important member of the Northern Virginia community.”

Virginia State Del. Alfonso H. Lopez, D-Arlington, earlier this month sponsored a resolution “commending” the notorious Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center “as an expression of the General Assembly’s admiration” for the center.

The resolution, which passed the full Virginia state legislature by voice vote March 7, was met with harsh criticism from terrorism experts as well as Fox News, which called it a “slap in the face of 9/11 victims.”

“What the Virginia State House has done is blatant acquiescence to America’s sworn enemies,” said terror expert Walid Shoebat. “It is treasonous, it is traitorous, it is criminal, and any state legislator who voted for it has violated the most important oaths of office.”

Former special FBI agent John Guandolo said Lopez’s resolution amounted to “public support for a terrorist organization.” He called its sponsors “criminally negligent” for not taking the time to research Dar al-Hijrah’s terrorist record.

“Is there a functioning brain cell at the state house in Richmond?” Guandolo demanded.

The large Falls Church, Va., mosque is a known breeding ground for terrorists, counting some of the Sept. 11 hijackers as well as the Fort Hood shooter as members. Late al-Qaida cleric Anwar Awlaki, moreover, once preached from Dar al-Hijrah’s pulpit.

“Almost no other mosque in the country has been linked to so many cases of alleged terrorism,” the Washington Post wrote in a long article on Dar al-Hijrah in 2011.

Still, Lopez, who is assigned to the assembly’s Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee, last week defended the mosque in a DailyKos.com posting, dismissing its connections to terrorists as “smears” and “a right-wing media attack” while exalting Dar al-Hijrah for its charitable work.

“In 2013, the members of the center provided more than $80,000 in assistance to community members struggling to pay their rent,” said Lopez, who previously served in the Obama administration as a Small Business Administration official and is now running for U.S. Congress.

CAIR offered cash to sheriff (bribery) to shut down briefing on jihad networks in US

CAIRwahabi

via CAIR tries bribery to shut down briefing on Muslim threat.

Despite pressure tactics, threats and even a $15,000 cash bribe from the Council on American-Islamic Relations to shut down a recent counter-terrorism training program for Virginia law enforcement, the training took place as scheduled, albeit with extra security.

It was one of the rare times government officials have not backed down under the group’s pressure tactics.

Washington-based CAIR, an Islamic lobbying group shunned by the FBI due to its ties to terrorist groups, launched a weeks-long campaign to intimidate Culpepper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins into canceling the three-day program, titled “Understanding and Investigating Jihadi Networks in America.”

But Jenkins was not deterred, even after agreeing to meet with CAIR officials.

The lead trainer, former special FBI agent John Guandolo, presented some 50 Virginia law enforcement officers with evidence of the radical Muslim Brotherhood’s operations in the U.S. and their jihadi support network, along with a large amount of evidence demonstrating CAIR was created and continues to be an entity of Hamas, a U.S.-designated terror group. Former U.S. prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy, former Pentagon inspector general Joseph Schmitz and former CIA case officer Clare Lopez also spoke at the seminar.

Now a counter-terrorism and homeland security consultant, Guandolo detailed for officers who attended the Feb. 25-27 seminar how this dangerous Islamic network in America radicalizes, trains and logistically supports jihadi operations in the United States and those launched from the U.S. against overseas targets.

He says CAIR, which is part of that network, was so worried about the training that it sent officials to Culpepper to lobby the sheriff to cancel the program, even offering together with a local mosque to pay for the program’s fees and related expenses.

“They were so bent on making sure this training did not take place that they offered to pay Sheriff Jenkins the entire cost of the training – including travel (expenses) – to keep it from happening,” Guandolo said.

CAIR declined comment.

Virginia: Muslim Brotherhood Supporters Host Fundraiser for #Dem Congressman

via The Investigative Project on Terrorism.

by John Rossomando

A Northern Virginia congressman will headline a fundraiser sponsored by a Muslim Brotherhood supporter whose organization, Egyptian Americans for Democracy and Human Rights (EADHR), held an anti-Semitic rally in New York last month, the Washington Free Beacon reports.

Participants at the EADHR rally outside the Saudi Arabian consulate in New York chanted, “Oh King of Saudi Arabia, why did you sell Egypt to the Jews?” and that the Saudis were “dirtier than the Jews.”

Now, U.S. Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., plans to attend a March 22 fundraiser to benefit his re-election campaign that is co-sponsored by EADHR co-founder Akram Elzend. The Free Beacon published a copy of the invitation, which also lists Mohamed Mohamed and Sameh Elhennawy as fundraiser hosts.

Elzend told the Free Beacon that the fundraiser has “nothing to do with the organization” he co-founded. He indicated that he considers Connolly “a great man, a great congressman, who really abides our values, our American values, and principles, and he stands up for them.”

Suggested contributions range from $150 for guest contributors to $400 for a supporter and spouse.

Elzend is an official with the Muslim American Society’s Washington, D.C. area chapter. MAS was identified by prosecutors in a 2008 case as the “overt arm” of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States.

In 2010, Connolly attended a fundraiser to benefit the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Va. Elzend serves as a mosque board member. The mosque’s ties to radicals has attracted repeated law enforcement attention over the years. Federal agents have described Dar al-Hijrah as the subject of “numerous investigations for financing and proving (sic) aid and comfort to bad orgs and members.”

These bad members include: American-born al-Qaida cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who served as an imam at Dar al-Hijrah before leaving the United States; two 9/11 hijackers who attended services there, Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan and terrorist financier Abdurrahman Alamoudi.

Elzend was present at a Capitol Hill briefing in December hosted by the EAHDR that was attended by Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) supporter Sami Al-Arian. An EADHR news conference last August protesting the ouster of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi featured Abdul Magwoud Dardery, the foreign affairs spokesman for the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood’s now banned Freedom and Justice Party.

Muslim Brotherhood symbols such as the R4BIA symbol are common at rallies sponsored by the EADHR.

Shoebat.com notes:  U.S. Congressman Compromised by Muslim Brotherhood

Had the Muslim Brotherhood been identified as a terrorist organization (even Saudi Arabia has done this) and enemy of the U.S. after the 9/11 attacks, any Congressman caught aiding or accepting money from said group would be guilty of treason.

Connolly has been on the Brotherhood’s dole since at least 2008 as noted in Gerry Connolly: The Congressman From the Muslim Brotherhood.

Virginia State House Commends Hamas

via Understanding the Threat Blog

One has to wonder if gross ignorance among elected officials of the jihadi threat to America could get any worse – then in walks the Virginia Legislature.

On Wednesday, March 5th, Virginia House Joint Resolution 484 was passed which commends Hamas’ Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia. Without becoming entirely sarcastic, the question has to be asked – is there a functioning brain cell at the State House in Richmond. Has the ability to reasonably process factual information completely evaporated from numerous elected officials in the state of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson?

Before we even look at the factual evidence that Dar al Hijrah is a Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas entity, we need to look no farther than the resolution itself to see the gross negligence of Virginia’s elect – at least those who voted for this resolution. The sixth of the eight total lines in the resolution reads: “WHEREAS, the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center is affiliated with the Muslim American Society, a national religious, educational, cultural, and charitable organization…”

Actually, the Muslim American Society (MAS) is a Muslim Brotherhood front group.

In the US v Sabri Benkhala terrorism case appeal (2007), the Department of Justice stated “The MAS was founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.”

The Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan) also acknowledges that MAS was created by the MB. Oddly enough, the Imam of the Dar al Hijrah – Shaker Elsayed – told the Chicago Tribune in a September 19, 2004 interview that “Ikhwan (MB) members founded MAS.” And not just any Ikhwan members…the General Masul (Leader) of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood was one of the three founding Directors of MAS in 1994. The other two werel two of the most prominent Muslim Brothers in North America – Jamal Badawi and Omar Soubani.

By the way, we are talking about the same Muslim American Society whose May 4, 2011 Press Release praised Osama bin Laden. “A visionary who believed in an Islamic state in Afghanistan” were the exact words MAS used to describe the Al Qaeda leader.

This is also the same MAS whose Tarbiya (training) guide for American Muslims calls for Muslims to “wage war” until Sharia is the law of the land in America (page 117).

There is much more evidence about the true nature of who MAS is, but this should be sufficient to demonstrate how unprofessional those who voted for this resolution really are.

Now, back to the Dar al Hijra, and the FACTS. The land for this Islamic Center was purchased by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) – the Muslim Brotherhood’s bank in America. The purchasing document was signed by Jamal Barzinji.

Besides being the founder and in leadership positions of numerous Muslim Brotherhood entities in the U.S., the FBI identified Barzinji as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in 1988, and Barzinji (page 37 para 74) is linked to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas.

Even simpler than this – the Dar al Hijrah’s own By-Laws state: “The Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center shall be affiliated with the following organizations: Muslim American Society (MAS), North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).”

In the Justice Department’s filing asking the court to deny ISNA and NAIT’s motion to have their names removed from the Unindicted co-conspirator list in the US v Holy Land Foundation trial – the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial ever successfully prosecuted in U.S. history – the government stated, “ISNA and NAIT…were intimately connected with the HLF and its assigned task of providing financial support to Hamas.” In the unsealed ruling on this matter, Federal Judge Jorge Solis wrote, “The Government has provided ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA, and NAIT with HLF, the Islamic Association of Palestine (“IAP”), and with Hamas.”

So easy a 3rd grader could figure it out. But not the Virginia Legislature.

The Dar al Hijrah is a Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas Islamic Center. And, according to the MB’s strategic memorandum discovered in the residence of a senior Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood official in ANNANDALE, VIRGINIA in 2004, the Muslim Brotherhood uses their Islamic Centers to prepare jihadis to wage jihad.

How about the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official report dated August 28, 2002 which states the Dar al Hijrah “Is a Mosque operating as a front for Hamas operatives in U.S.”

The bad news is, these are only a few pieces of the large amount of evidence demonstrating the Dar al Hijrah is a Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas operation. As a reminder, Hamas was formed out of the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood and is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).

For the sake of the safety of Virginians, perhaps our elected officials may want to brush up on the MB’s Movement in America and note that the most prominent Islamic organizations in Virginia are a part of that Movement. The archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America were found in Virginia in 2004, after all.

So, Virginia Legislature, you “Commended” Hamas this week. Hope that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. Some would call that public support for a terrorist organization. I just call it criminally negligent.

The MB probably just calls it Dhimmitude. Or, they may call it “the road to victory.”

Virginia: Terror-linked CAIR forces agency to pull accreditation for anti-jihad training

Just yesterday we gave you the bad news that Sheriff Jenkins was allowing himself to be fooled by Hamas-linked, pro-jihad, pro-sharia Muslims at CAIR – even allowing the legal jihadists to train cops. The bad news keeps coming and sharia keeps creeping.

via CAIR: Virginia Agency Pulls Accreditation for Anti-Muslim Training | MRO.

In a statement issued earlier today, the Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy said:

“After careful consideration and consultation with other law enforcement agencies and academies, having firsthand knowledge of this training, the Rappahannock Regional Criminal Justice Academy will no longer be offering Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services in-service training credit for the upcoming seminar “Understanding and Investigating Jihadi Networks in America.”

“The Academy has apologized to those law enforcement agencies and personnel affected by this decision and will work to ensure those officers receive the in-service training credits necessary and relevant to their positions.”

Sheriff Jenkins could have squashed this quickly and easily but he didn’t, he allowed a Hamas-linked org to spew dawah to his force.

Virginia: Sheriff won’t stop counterterrorism training at terror-linked CAIR’s request

That’s the good news.

cair-terror

via Culpeper sheriff: no plans to stop counterterrorism training – Roanoke Times: Virginia.

Despite the urging of local and national Islamic leaders, Culpeper County Sheriff Scott Jenkins said Friday that he has no plans to cancel a controversial three-day counterterrorism training session next week.

Jenkins met Friday with Corey Saylor of the D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic relations and Dr. Nabeel Babar, director of the Islamic Center of Culpeper, both of whom asked the sheriff to cancel the training sessions scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at Germanna Community College’s Daniel Technology Center. The sessions will be led by former FBI agent John Guandolo, whom the CAIR called a “notorious anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist” in a release earlier this week.

Both Saylor and Jenkins described their meeting as positive, but Saylor said he was not pleased the seminar will apparently go on as planned.

“Sheriff Jenkins wants to hold some good counterterrorism seminars, and that is how it should be,” Saylor said, adding, “We just don’t think John Guandolo is the man to do it.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors extremist groups, has also called on Jenkins to cancel the seminars. It said Guandolo has claimed that CIA Director John Brennan is a secret Muslim agent for the Saudis.

That claim could be easily confirmed by Brennan himself. Why hasn’t anyone in the media simply asked him if he is or has ever been a Muslim?

Jenkins said Friday that he offered to hold the sessions with a disclaimer stating that his department does not necessarily agree with anything Guandolo might say in his “Jihadi Networks in America” training programs.

The bad news is Sheriff Jenkins apparently has no clue who the FBI-banned, DOJ-confirmed, unindicted as a co-conspirator in the largest Islamic terror finance conviction in U.S. history, Hamas-CAIR is. Links on left nav bar for those new to CAIR’s racket.

Jenkins said he also offered Saylor and Babar an opportunity to talk with his staff on Monday and hold a more formal educational session at some later date.

“The more information we can get the better,” Jenkins said.

Only if you believe in keeping your friends close and your enemies closer.

Jenkins earlier stated that he and his men were capable of separating facts from any theories offered by Guandolo.

“We’ve got sense enough not to take anything we might not agree with at face value,” he said.

Although Saylor said he was pleased with Jenkins’ bid at “addressing our concerns,” he said that he was disappointed with the sheriff’s refusal to cancel the training sessions.

CAIR sent letters to the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice and the Rappahannock Regional Justice Academy on Friday afternoon asking that officers attending the seminar not be given the 40 hours of re-certification credits it now carries.

“We respectfully request that the Department of Criminal Justice Services withdraw its accreditation for this hate-filled training program,” the letter to DCJS Director Garth Wheeler stated.

According to a CAIR news release, Wheeler responded by saying he would look into the matter.

Jenkins said he assured Saylor and Babar that the seminar “was not a political stunt.” He said he also told them that some of the problems that have arisen might have been avoided “if we had talked earlier.”

“I don’t like to be prejudged,” Jenkins said.

To ensure safety for everyone, Jenkins said tight security measures will be put in place next week when Guandolo holds his seminars.

Safety of whom? From what? Muslims?

A total of 50 officers from Culpeper, various parts of Virginia and other states are expected to attend.

Hamas-linked CAIR put out a call to action to Muslims. This is a non-Muslim call to action. Sheriff Jenkins should not be negotiating with terror-linked Muslim groups. Let him know.

We’re now in discussions with the sheriff and ask that you not contact his office at this time. We’ve disabled the click-and-send letter for now. Thank you to all those who took action!

Virginia: Taxpayer-funded library speaker has “high hopes” America soon a Muslim land

This taxpayer-funded Islamic dawah is taking place at more than 800 public libraries across the United States.

Shaykh Abdullah Nooruddin Durkee

Adorned in simple Islamic garb, Shaykh Abdullah Nooruddeen Durkee sat stoically, cane in hand, at the back of the Greenwood Library Atrium to impart his proverbial wisdom to the students of Longwood University and community members of Farmville, many from the Islamic Center of Prince Edward County, on Wednesday, Jan. 29.

The talk, entitled “Travels in Muslim Lands,” was part of the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf Grant recently awarded to Greenwood Library by the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Included in the grant were twenty-five books, three DVDs and access to the Oxford Islamic Studies Online for a year.

“Salaam alaikum” Nooruddeen began with an Arabic greeting of peace, followed by his “high hopes” for America to soon become a Muslim land. A statement, he said, we ought not have been offended by.

With only an hour to speak, he then launched into his life story, beginning at his birth in “almost upstate” New York, just as World War II began. It was apparently after the war though that “the war began for me,” Nooruddeen said of an internal struggle for peace within himself after moving to the highly disorienting island of Manhattan.

It was on that busy island, though, that Nooruddeen’s expansive view of the world took shape, and his eventual path to Islam began through diverse interactions with great thinkers and theologians, who discussed the “ineffable figure” that is God, and how the values of good and evil differ in various societies.

“Unfortunately…today education almost does not exist in America,” Nooruddeen said in his first of many digressions, then going on to proclaim, “Very little education goes on in these walls;” a bold statement to make in a university setting. He cited that universities functioned primarily as a place of vocational study, despite having dropped out of high school and having never attended a university, himself.

Having written over 90 books, including a transliteration of the Qu’ran, and establishing three schools, Nooruddeen more than proves the point that education is not the end-all-be- all in acquiring knowledge and wisdom.

Junior Political Science major Tyler Ellis commented that Nooruddeen “…did seem to have sort of jaded views” concerning education, and that “…[university] is where you kind of get an understanding view of other people.”

Although, Ellis clarified, “I wouldn’t say he’s wrong. He got to where he wanted, and he’s not complaining…It’s right for him. He got exactly what he wanted and he seems happy with it. More power to him.”

After questioning the legitimacy of higher education, Nooruddeen questioned our collective belief in the American ideal of “the home of the free and the brave” by citing discrepancies he had with the legitimacy of the attacks on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, which prompted his discussion of cognitive dissonance or “loss of harmony” in the mind caused by two contradictory beliefs existing simultaneously.

Specifically, he called into question the actuality of a 747 hitting the Pentagon when taking into account the size of the hole and lack of titanium scrap at the site. Ellis felt the reference to 9/11 to be “unexpected,” and explained his, now growing interest in the matter.

“I thought it was interesting because I listen to conspiracy theories and he was pretty emphatic about it. I definitely need to go back and look now. It didn’t affect my opinion but it made me want to rethink and reevaluate the whole situation.”

“Where’s the freedom and democracy?” Nooruddeen questioned, referencing an America that would enter into wars with unprovoked countries, and close schools in order to avoid race mixing. The latter struck a particular chord in this audience, many of whom were residents of Prince Edward County, and Farmville, Virginia, which were centers of the civil rights movement and massive school closings in response to integration in the early 1960s.

Nooruddeen’s narrative pace was rather disjointed, but toward the end of the hour he made his way to his trip to India, the “Travels to Muslim Lands” in question, where he attended a Buddhist retreat, where he, in a peculiar turn of events, learned the ways of Islam.

On the whole, Ellis remarked that the talk was “really fascinating” and was glad he was able to experience such a “unique perspective” of someone “who now seems to identify more as a Muslim than an American.”

“Remember five things,” Noorudden urged the audience as the night came to a close: peace, justice, mercy, love and freedom. He then quoted Janis Joplin, saying “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose,” and took a bow.

The resources provided by the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf Grant are now available for checkout at the Greenwood Library.


Fascinating? Well, fascinating to come to the realization that in deed Muslims living in the United States want to fundamentally transform this country into a Muslim land.

Virginia: Muslim Cemetery Might Be Largest In America

via VA Muslim Cemetery Might Be Largest In America.

all-muslim-association-of-america-stafford-cemetery-1

Sacred ground lies in Fredericksburg, an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia located 49 miles south of Washington, D.C. A battle was fought here over emancipation of slaves, and now slaves of Allah emancipated from the trials of the dunya rest in what maybe the largest Muslim cemetery in the United States. Established in 1986, the first grave was dug in 1996 at the All Muslim Association of America (AMAA) Cemetery.

“[A] brother died and we had a hard time finding a place – thats how we started,” remarks Sikander Javed, the treasurer and member of the board of directors for AMAA. In the late eighties, Mohammad Younis, Zar Khan, and some other members of the community met at the home of Javed. “We didn’t have a particular area in mind; looking for an inexpensive option we picked Stafford County, but did not limit ourselves.”

For the past 30 years the home of this former financial guru for the city government of Alexandria has been the office of the AMAA. After retirement, Sikander Javed and friends have dedicated the rest of their days to the cemetery project.

Located in Northern Virginia, the cemetery serves the DC Metro and the rest of the US; people from as far away as MIchigan come here to be buried.

The original site was 7.5 acres, but when an adjacent 77 acre plot went into foreclosure, the association took a loan and brought the property. “We paid that land off early part of this year,” said Javed. “The balance of $10,000 was paid off by a Dr. Hussain who recently buried a relative.” Currently AMAA receives about 12 burial requests per month.

Association administration believes that the current 7.5 acres of land will be used by the end of 2015. To be able to continue to serve the community, the organization needs to develop and level the land and have it ready for burials by 2015. The development of this parcel of land includes surveys, county approval and construction.

Plans include a permanent restroom; presently, the cemetery has a portable restroom located next to the entrance.  A consulting firm in Fredericksburg hired to make the site plan aims to have the plan ready by January. “ [We need to] expand the current cemetery, built a new wudu facility and prayer area. Eventually we want to make a building to pray the janaza, as well as a full fledged washing area. Ultimately offer a complete burial in as little [cost] as possible,” says Javed.

How many jihadis are buried there?

The Boston Bomber was buried in a Muslim cemetery elsewhere in Virginia.

Virginia: Fed judge continues to stall case against convicted Muslim terrorist

That should lead to his deportation. via After 3-Year Freeze, Government Seeks “Prompt Resolution” of Al-Arian Case :: The Investigative Project on Terrorism.

Federal prosecutors used a relatively innocuous defense request last week to remind a federal judge that she has held up Sami Al-Arian’s criminal contempt case for more than three years.

Al-Arian has been on house arrest since 2008 after being indicted and charged with criminal contempt. He repeatedly refused to testify before a federal grand jury investigating terrorist financing despite court-approved immunity. He claims that his 2006 plea agreement in a related case involving his support for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad meant he’d never have to cooperate with the government again.

Nothing has happened in the case since 2010, when U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema canceled a hearing on pending motions, including a motion to dismiss the case. She had all the information she needs from briefs, she wrote, “and the Court is working on an opinion which addresses all relevant issues.”

That echoed a similar written promise Brinkema wrote in April 2009: “The Court will issue a written opinion on the motion in the near future.”

No opinion was issued, however, and Al-Arian remains on house arrest. In January, Brinkema dramatically reduced the restrictions on Al-Arian’s activities in an unsolicited order.

On Friday, Al-Arian’s attorneys petitioned the court for permission to move to a new home. Prosecutors filed no response, but told the defense that they would leave the decision up to the court, repeating their view that Al-Arian should be in custody until his trial.

“Further, it is the government’s position that this motion highlights the need for a prompt resolution of the outstanding substantive motions in this case,” the defense motion says.

Brinkema granted the motion on Monday allowing Al-Arian to move, court records show. She made no reference to the government’s “prompt resolution” request.

Brinkema has not explained why she has refused to either dismiss the case, as defense attorneys want, or let it proceed to trial. Under terms of his 2006 plea, Al-Arian would face deportation if the case were dismissed. That could prove particularly problematic to carry out because he is a stateless Palestinian convicted of a terrorism support felony.

His claim about his plea agreement protecting him from testifying before the grand jury previously was rejected by the 4th Circuit and 11th Circuit courts of appeal, but those decisions came before the issue was the subject of a criminal case.

In addition, prosecutors made it clear that Al-Arian has produced no evidence to support the claim. It is not mentioned anywhere in the plea agreement and neither Al-Arian nor his attorneys mentioned it when he admitted his guilt in a 2006 hearing.

Al-Arian, meanwhile, appears to be using his legal limbo to his advantage. As the Investigative Project on Terrorism exclusively reported earlier this month, he is actively involved in a group advocating for the restoration of Muslim Brotherhood power in Egypt. That effort included his presence on Capitol Hill for a one-sided discussion of the situation in Egypt since President Mohamed Morsi’s ouster in July.


Meanwhile, Egypt officially labels Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group. And al Arian is now officially lobbying for an Egyptian terrorist group.
