Video: George Mason Univ Students Sign Petition Supporting ISIS…on 9/11

via Video: College Students Sign Petition in Support of ISIS | CNS News.

Over the period of about an hour, I stood on the campus of George Mason University in Northern Virginia and asked passing students to sign my petition. The petition was adorned with the ISIS flag above the unambiguous headline, “SUPPORT ISIS.”

Northern Virginia is also known as Virginiastan…where Muslims cheered and celebrated on 9/11/01.

I was able to accumulate 11 signatures and email addresses from students at this institute of higher education. Students who will, one day, go into the world and have real responsibilities. Students who, will one day, have children. Students who probably vote in presidential elections.

This has to make you wonder who these millennials are being taught is the greater threat to mankind.  Terror groups like ISIS or the US military? What are their professors telling them?

I think it’s a fair question.  Particularly, considering the reaction I got and the fact that this video was shot on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

 

Virginia: Chesterfield Muslim pleads guilty in $19.8M cigarette racket

via Chesterfield man faces prison time for crimes involving $19.8 million worth of cigarettes | WTVR.com. h/t jm

RICHMOND, Va. – A Chesterfield man faces five years in prison and a $250,000 fine for his role in a crime that involved $19.8 million worth of cigarettes. Mohamed Seid Ahmed Mohamed, 56, pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and to traffic in contraband cigarettes, according to the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Mohamed used his role as owner of City Cigarettes in Richmond to buy 440,000 cartons of cigarettes from wholesale stores between 2011 and 2014 without paying the applicable Virginia Retail Sales and Use Tax.

He did so by claiming the cigarettes would be resold at City Cigarettes, according to his plea agreement.

Instead, Mohamed and his co-conspirators sold most of the cigarettes to people who they knew would take the cigarettes out of state to sell in the black market — tax free.

“Mohamed and his co-conspirators never intended to and, in fact, did not collect or pay, the applicable Virginia Retail Sales and Use Tax for the cigarettes purchased at the wholesaler,” the United States Attorney said. “The activity of the conspiracy resulted in lost sales tax revenue to the Commonwealth of Virginia in the amount of $1,009,046.”

Mohamed, who was charged with the conspiracy on August 25, will be sentenced on December 11.

What did they do with the profit?

Muslim women in Virginia & Washington arrested, led al-Shabaab jihad fundraising network

via FBI — Three Defendants Arrested on Charges of Providing Material Support to a Foreign Terrorist Organization. h/t TROP

WASHINGTON—Three defendants were arrested today on charges of providing material support to al-Shabaab, a designated foreign terrorist organization that is conducting a violent insurgency campaign in Somalia. Two additional defendants are fugitives in Kenya and Somalia.

A superseding indictment was issued on June 26, 2014, by a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia, charging the defendants with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization and 20 counts of providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization. The indictment was unsealed after the following arrest warrants were executed today:

  • Muna Osman Jama, 34, was arrested at her home in Reston, Virginia;
  • Hinda Osman Dhirane, 44, was arrested at her home in Kent, Washington;
  • Farhia Hassan was arrested at her residence in the Netherlands;
  • Fardowsa Jama Mohamed is a fugitive in Kenya and the subject of a pending arrest warrant; and
  • Barira Hassan Abdullahi is a fugitive in Somalia and the subject of a pending arrest warrant.

If convicted, each defendant faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison on each count in the indictment.

The Harakat Shabaab al-Mujahidin, commonly known as al-Shabaab, is a terrorist group conducting a violent insurgency campaign in Somalia. In 2008, the U.S. government designated al-Shabaab as a foreign terrorist organization, and in February 2012, the leaders of al-Shabaab and the terrorist group al-Qa’ida publicly announced the merger of the two groups.

According to court records, defendants Muna Osman Jama and Hinda Osman Dhirane were the leaders of an al-Shabaab fundraising conspiracy operating in the United States, Kenya, the Netherlands, Somalia and elsewhere. Jama and Dhirane allegedly directed a network composed primarily of women who provided monthly payments that were coordinated, facilitated and tracked by the defendants to their conduits in Kenya and Somalia. According to court records, Jama was principally responsible for sending money to Kenya through her conduit, defendant Fardowsa Jama Mohamed, while Dhirane was primarily responsible for sending money to Somalia through her conduit, defendant Barira Hassan Abdullahi.

According to court records, the defendants would refer to the money they sent overseas as “living expenses,” and they repeatedly used code words such as “orphans” and “brothers in the mountains” to refer to al-Shabaab fighters, and “camels” to refer to trucks needed by al-Shabaab. The money transfers often were broken down into small amounts as low as $50 or $100, and the funds were intended for use by al-Shabaab insurgents operating in Somalia.

 No word on their immigration status, what mosque they attend nor who they were collecting money from in the U.S. to fund jihad around the world.

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.”
