Wisconsin: Muslims arrested for defrauding program meant to feed women, kids

via Store owners accused of defrauding program meant to feed women, kids – WISN

MILWAUKEE —Three men have been arrested in a growing crackdown on welfare fraud.

State agents, police, even the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives took part in a raid at Chuck’s at 18th Street and Teutonia Avenue and at All Star Food and Beer at 27th and Burleigh streets.

A months-long investigation led police to All Star Food and Beer on Wednesday. They arrested the owner, Ali Yousef Aldarorah, and a clerk, Belkasim Moftah, accusing them of defrauding a program that aims to feed poor women and children.

“The WIC (Women, Infants and Children) checks for infant formulas can be worth as much as $100 to the stores,” Milwaukee County Assistant District Attorney David Feiss said.

Feiss said the men were recorded numerous times by an undercover informant giving customers cash in exchange for their vouchers — at about half the check’s value or less — instead of food or formula.

“And that’s really the real harm and shame of this is money we’re providing to people to make sure that young children, infants, have good nutrition so they can get a solid start in life, that money is not being used how it’s intended to be used. Rather it’s being converted to other uses,” Feiss said.

It’s being converted to cash, which Feiss said often pays for drugs and alcohol. At Chuck’s, owner Hesham Al-Ali is accused of defrauding taxpayers out of at least $20,000.

This follows WISN 12 News’ story last month where WISN 12 News reporter Nick Bohr confronted another store owner, facing felony charges for a similar scheme on the south side.

“We think it is much more widespread. We’ll be continuing to investigate, and I guess we’re looking at how can we put a dent in this,” Feiss said.

It’s a crime, for WIC participants to trade their vouchers for cash. Investigators said they will be looking over the records to see if any customers could also be charged.

In unrelated news, Wisconsin’s first lady was visiting a mosque just a few scant weeks ago:

Wisconsin: First lady goes to mosque for stealth dawah

Women from all walks of life can make meaningful contributions and take on leadership roles no matter what their background or beliefs.

That was the message Wisconsin’s first lady Tonette Walker shared Monday with about two dozen members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Oshkosh at the Qamar Mosque.

The community’s Lajna Ima’illah, or women’s auxiliary, hosted the wife of Gov. Scott Walker as part of a dinner focusing on women’s leadership. The first lady spoke during the event which included a glimpse into the Islamic religion and culture.

Was the first lady segregated from her male companions or were men not permitted to attend?

“It’s so exciting to be up here because when we’re together and we’re talking, we’re just like another mom or woman or someone in a leadership role,” Walker said in an Oshkosh Northwestern Media interview after Monday’s event. “We’re exactly the same. We just come from different backgrounds and have different beliefs, but when we really get down to what’s important — our families and our children and our love for Wisconsin and things around us — it’s just like being with anybody else.

“It’s important for us all to be respectful and to get to know each other and other people and other communities,” Walker said. “It’s humbling to be able to come into a community and listen to them.”

“I’m glad we were able to have so many guests here today,” [Hajra] Ahmad said. “We see the community leaders, but don’t always get to connect with them. Many of the guests here today are women in leadership (positions) in the Oshkosh area, and we hope that when they leave this mosque that they have more knowledge of our community.”

And that sums it all up. It’s not about women or leadership. It’s not about diversity or interfaith harmony. It’s about Islam. Spreading it.

That’s why Wisconsin’s first lady was in the mosque rather than a group taking a civic visit to the statehouse to discuss leadership.

Wisconsin: Christian College Drops ‘Crusaders’ Nickname Because…of Islam

via Raymond Ibrahim who writes:

One more example of Western — and Christian — capitulation to the forces of “multiculturalism,” “pluralism,” “diversity,” and of course, political correctness, despite assertions otherwise.

A Christian college in Wisconsin is dropping its “Crusaders” nickname after nearly 50 years, claiming the moniker has become outdated in a “more global society,” university officials told FoxNews.com.

Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown and its Division III athletic teams have used the name since its founding in 1968. Matt Davis, the university’s executive vice president, said no complaints have been received by the school and stressed that it coincides with its name change from Maranatha Baptist College in December.

“But I also agree that times change and we understand that context changes,” Davis told FoxNews.com. “Our world has changed since 9/11 and we’ve become a more global society with the Internet. The heartbeat behind this was not political correctness, but expanded opportunities for our students.”…

Ibrahim Hooper, communications director at the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told FoxNews.com he welcomed the “Crusaders” change, but said he found team names or mascots that incorporate race or ethnicity more problematic, particularly those pertaining to Native Americans.

“I welcome the spirit behind the change,” Hooper said. “It’s obvious they thought about this. I applaud their effort.”

Faux News continues to allow the Hamas-linked legal jihadists at CAIR a free platform to espouse sharia.

Update from a reader: (keep sending stuff in guys – we’ll get it all posted eventually)

The Muslim equivalent of “Crusader” would be “Conqueror” or el-Fatih in Arabic This nickname was applied to the Ottoman Sultan Mehmet II who ultimately conquered Constantinople (Istanbul) after numerous attempts. So this exposes an Islamic double standard. Christians cannot use the term “Crusader” without Islamic criticism, but a mosque in Brooklyn can call itself Fatih Camii (Mosque) with impunity. We all need to understand enough Arabic to stop this nonsense.

 

Wisconsin: Somali gang wars spread from Minneapolis

Not so pious Muslims drinking alcohol and shooting rival Somali’s. via Police say Hudson shooting gang-related. h/t Refugee Resettlement Watch.

Investigators say the weekend shootings of three men at a Hudson liquor store involved members of rival gangs from Minneapolis. Saint Croix County prosecutors filed a total of 30 felony charges Tuesday against 22-year-old Guled Abdi and 26-year-old Ahmed Hirsi. Both men remain in the Hennepin County jail awaiting extradition to Wisconsin, where they will each face six charges of attempted first-degree intentional homicide, six counts of reckless endangerment, and three counts of reckless injury.

The shootings occurred Sunday morning outside Spirit Seller Liquor in downtown Hudson. Investigators said six members of the Somali Outlaws gang were partying Saturday night, and drove their SUV to Hudson in the morning because liquor stores in Minnesota are closed on Sundays. Two people went in the store to buy the liquor, but their credit card was rejected. Outside, two men in a car approached and offered the group alcohol and cigarettes.

Coincidence? Or does this sound like a possible illegal SNAP/liquor/cigarette operation might be a possibility?

A derogatory remark was apparently said during the exchange, and shots were fired at all six in the SUV. Three were wounded and one woman, 28-year-old Fartun Aidid, remained in critical condition at last word at a Saint Paul hospital.

Thanks to Bill Clinton, Catholic Charities and all those who continue to bring Somali Muslims into the U.S.

See how Islam is creeping in Wisconsin here.

Milwaukee: A Somali Muslim enclave grows

via Growing number of Somali refugees making Milwaukee home.

Omar Mohamad left his war-torn homeland of Somalia when he was about 6. For the next decade, his family lived in a refugee camp in Kenya.

Finally, in 2004, he and some family members were resettled in Milwaukee. He remembers it was October and the first time he had worn a jacket.

Although he had never been to school — there was little education in the camps — he was placed at Washington High School. He spoke no English. Students made fun of the way he dressed, and referred to him and other Somali Bantu — an ethnic minority within Somalia — as \”those Africans.\”

He began by reciting the ABCs and reading nursery rhymes like \”Mary Had a Little Lamb.\” His studying was relentless.

“School was not easy,” he said. “All I did was go home and study, eat and go to class.”

In 2008, he graduated as valedictorian. He continued on to Marquette University, where he received a degree in social welfare and justice. Now 24, he plans to attend the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to get a master\’s degree in social work.

Among Milwaukee\’s small but growing Somali community, he\’s the first refugee to earn a college degree. He recently became a U.S. citizen and changed his last name to Mohamad from Mursal.

He became a U.S. citizen and changed his last name to Mohamad?

Mohamad said he’s confident others will follow and take their place among the growing ranks of a new generation of Somali Bantus who now call Milwaukee home.

About 40% of the elementary school-age children who attend the center are Somali, said Robert Dunn, president and CEO of Our Next Generation.

“Two or three years ago a Somali father came to us and was interested in the academic support we could offer his children,” Dunn said. Once that family came to the center, others followed.

“The influx of Somali children has been of great benefit to the cultural understanding and awareness,\” Dunn said. At first, the Somali children were viewed as outsiders, he said. They look and dress differently. As Muslims, the girls cover their hair and wear long dresses.

According to the state’s Department of Children and Families, the first wave of Somali refugees began arriving in 1995. Since then the federal government has resettled approximately 700 Somali in Wisconsin, primarily in Brown, Barron, Dane and Milwaukee counties.

Translation: U.S. taxpayers funded the relocation of Somali Muslims from Somalia to Wisconsin and got nothing in return.

The largest population — about 400 people —lives in Milwaukee, said Joe Scialfa, communications director for DCF.

But Ussuf Mursal, Mohamad’s brother, who works at Catholic Social Services refugee program, thinks the actual number is considerably larger. He estimates as many as 1,300 Somalis are now living here.

Nearly double? Someone’s lying.

There are about 250 families, he said, and most families have five or more children. For example, he said, he now has six children and his ex-wife has 11 children, including two of his.

It’s highly unlikely that two Somali immigrants are supporting 17 children so who is paying for all their kids? American taxpayers.

With such large families, providing the necessary support is a strain, he said. And because so many Somali Bantu did not go to school, passing the U.S. citizenship test presents a problem. Still, many are getting established, buying homes and starting businesses.

Like many other adults who left Somalia, he has painful memories of family members getting killed and raped. He’s now a citizen and loves Milwaukee.

“We came here for security, education and a better life,” he said. He has 13 children, some grown, some who attend Riverside High School or Milwaukee Area Technical College.

“We’ve all struggled very hard, but people like Omar and my kids will be a good example to others,” he said.

Mohamad said he wants to continue to work with his community. “My goal is to to make a path for my community and make our horizons bigger.”

A path for Islam. How can that be a good thing for Milwaukee – “beer capital of the world?”

$5M reward for two American-born Muslims waging jihad in Somalia

They’ll hype these guys up like they did al Awlaki – who was never more popular than after Obama raised his profile. via CNN: Bounty on two Americans tied to Somali terror group

PS: He’s a Muslim Student Association Alumni

The State Department has put a multimillion-dollar bounty on the heads of two Americans who the United States claims belong to an al Qaeda affiliate in Somalia, CNN has learned.

Posters and matchbooks in Somali and English emblazoned with the names and pictures of Omar Shafik Hammami and Jehad Serwan Mostafa tout rewards up to $5 million each for information leading to their arrest or conviction. Both men are on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists List.

The rewards are being offered through the State Department’s Rewards for Justice Program.

Hammami and Mostafa are members of Al-Shabaab, the al Qaeda affiliate in Somalia, and “have made significant contributions to this terrorist organization’s media and military activities,” according to a State Department statement on the rewards, obtained by CNN. They are both are believed to be in Somalia and speak English, Arabic and Somali.

Hammami has been engaged in a public rift with Al-Shabaab over the past year. Last March, he first expressed concern about his safety in an extraordinary Web video. He has since criticized the group’s leaders for corruption and living extravagant lifestyles with money fighters collect from Somali residents, and for fighting only in Somalia while ignoring global jihad.

Hammami’s family has said they fear for his life.

But the senior FBI official told CNN that Hammami’s current status with the group is “immaterial” and that the reward is based on the actions he has already taken to threaten U.S. interests.

“We still believe he is an individual of great significance to the activities that are going on in Somalia with Al-Shabaab,” the official said.

Mostafa is believed to be either 27 or 32. He was born in Wisconsin before moving California, where he attended college. He traveled to Somalia in 2005, where officials say he led foreign fighters for Al-Shabaab and served as a media expert and recruiter. He was indicted in California on charges of providing material support to Al-Shabaab.

“Anytime we have U.S. citizens who are trying to affiliate with groups to obtain experience and training and have the opportunity to bring back that lethal experience back to the United States, it’s a concern,” a State Department diplomatic security official said. “There is no question the cases against these two guys are based on their activities to date. However, we have a continuing interest in terrorist activates in Somalia right up to now. And these men serve as very powerful images for radicalization and recruitment.”

Unless they are Obama-funded groups whom the U.S. (Holder) allows Muslims in the U.S. to fund, arm and affiliate with. Then it’s ok.

Under the Rewards for Justice Program, a $25 million reward was offered for information leading to the capture of Osama bin Laden.

Then the U.S. left the informants flat and the Pakistani’s arrested them.

What about this American-born Muslim fighting on Obama’s side in Syria?

Or what about this Huffpo writer who fought on Obama’s side in Libya and Syria, wrote a book about it and blogs about it?

VanDyke fought with Libyan militants under the banner of the LIFG, a terrorist group which killed US troops in Iraq, yet he will not even be questioned by authorities when he visits the nation’s capital.

Green Bay: Muslim gets probation in khat bust

Local drug enforcement officers say this was their first khat-related find but that they expect the drug to become more common as the area’s Somali population grows.

via USA: Man gets probation in khat drug arrest.

Charges against three men for allegedly bringing the first known supply of the illegal drug khat into Green Bay could be resolved within the next several weeks.

One man, Abdignani Raage, 30, of Green Bay has pleaded no contest to related charges in Brown County Circuit Court. Two other men, Abdimajid Said, 37, of Minneapolis, and Hussein Salad, 31, of Howard, are scheduled for trial next month.

Raage was sentenced earlier this month to two years of probation for felony possession of a nonnarcotic with intent to deliver and two misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance.

Said and Salad are both charged with a felony count of possession with intent to deliver. Said is scheduled for a Jan. 14 final pretrial conference. Salad’s final pretrial conference is Jan. 28.

The three are believed to be immigrants from Somalia, where the drug immensely popular, according to police.

Believed to be? Why isn’t their status a known fact at this point? And why isn’t deportation on the table?

The effect of the drug is similar to that of cocaine or methamphetamine, though less intense, according to the U.S. Department of Justice’s National Drug Intelligence Center. Chronic abuse can result in exhaustion, violence and suicidal depression.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security allegedly intercepted two boxes of khat at a Cincinnati port in October 2011, according to court records. The boxes, which came from the Netherlands, were addressed to a postal mailbox in Green Bay. Local drug enforcement agents were notified. They staked out that postal box and arrested the three when they showed up to pick up the delivery, the complaint says.

Local drug enforcement officers say this was their first khat-related find but that they expect the drug to become more common as the area’s Somali population grows.

First locally but not the first in the Somali immigrant community.
