Florida: Orlando residents up in arms over seven-story mega mosque expansion

And they should be

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Plans for a massive expansion to a Mosque have residents in one part of Orange County up in arms, but their issue has nothing to do with religion.

Residents who live near the proposed expansion on Apopka Vineland Road in Doctor Phillips said it’s because of the size of the project.

Grand plans for the towering new expansion to The Islamic Center of Orlando have already cleared two major hurdles with the county.

“If you look around the area there is nothing that large in terms of a footprint to go off of,” said resident Mike Kulich.

Residents said the building is going to be seven-stories and extend an extra block.

Commissioner Scott Boyd said his team is still working to find out the impacts the project would have on the roads.

The Islamic Center of Orlando did not comment.

County commissioners will have the last say on the expansion.


Commissioners are paid off and if not will be bullied by the DOJ to allowing this jihad teaching institution. According to the video linked above, the mosque will fill the adjacent vacant lots and be SEVEN stories tall!

A little taste of what residents can expect:

Islamic Center of Orlando, Jama Masjid is located in the heart of Orlando in very close proximity to Disney, Universal, and Sea World.

While residents are rightly worried about traffic and noise (call to prayer five times a day?) – they should also worry about housing prices and quality of life…but they should be more worried about what is currently being taught at the mosque and will be taught in the future. And the Muslims who will heed the words of the imams who frequent the massive barracks.

Sahih al-Bukhari » Book of Fighting for the Cause of Allah (Jihaad)

Narrated `Abdullah bin Masud:

I asked Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ), “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! What is the best deed?” He replied, “To offer the prayers at their early stated fixed times.” I asked, “What is next in goodness?” He replied, “To be good and dutiful to your parents.” I further asked, what is next in goodness?” He replied, “To participate in Jihad in Allah’s Cause.” I did not ask Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) anymore and if I had asked him more, he would have told me more.

Narrated Ibn `Abbas:

Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “There is no Hijra (i.e. migration) (from Mecca to Medina) after the Conquest (of Mecca), but Jihad and good intention remain; and if you are called (by the Muslim ruler) for fighting, go forth immediately.

Narrated Abu Huraira:

A man came to Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) and said, “Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” He replied, “I do not find such a deed.” Then he added, “Can you, while the Muslim fighter is in the battle-field, enter your mosque to perform prayers without cease and fast and never break your fast?” The man said, “But who can do that?” Abu- Huraira added, “The Mujahid (i.e. Muslim fighter) is rewarded even for the footsteps of his horse while it wanders bout (for grazing) tied in a long rope.”

Narrated Abu Huraira:

I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, “The example of a Mujahid in Allah’s Cause– and Allah knows better who really strives in His Cause—-is like a person who fasts and prays continuously. Allah guarantees that He will admit the Mujahid in His Cause into Paradise if he is killed, otherwise He will return him to his home safely with rewards and war booty.”


Americans must learn that the only way to stop the spread of jihad and the conquest of America and building of multi-million dollar foreign-funded mega-mosques is to end immigration from Muslim countries. Period.

Sam’s Club donates $2,500 to Florida mosque named after military wing of terror group Hamas

A Florida Family Association supporter happened to look up at the wall behind the checkout line at the Sam’s Club located at 2021 Brandon Boulevard in Brandon, Florida.  He saw a large photograph of a check made out from Sam’s Club in the amount of $2,500 payable to the Islamic Community of Tampa located in the top left prominent position on the wall.  Florida Family Association snapped a cellphone photograph.   Photographs indicated that no other non-profit organization received more than $500. 

Did Sam’s Club and parent company Wal-Mart know the following when it gave this store’s largest non-profit donation to the Islamic Community of Tampa?  

  • The Islamic Community of Tampa is also known as the Al-Qassam mosque.    The Military Wing of the Palestinian Hamas is called the Al-Qassam Brigade. InvestigativeProject.org reports “The mosque, according to Sami Al-Arian, was named after Izzedin al-Qassam.   Al-Qassam, a Syrian killed fighting the British mandate in 1935, ‘is the main source of inspiration for the Islamic Jihad movement’ Palestinian scholar Ziad Abu Amr wrote in his book, Islamic Fundamentalism in the West Bank and Gaza. ‘The Islamic Jihad’s supporters have elevated him almost to a saintly status.’” 
  • The Hamas rockets fired at Israel are named Qassam rockets.  
  • Sami Al-Arian was indicted in February 2003 on 17 counts under the Patriot Act for allegedly being the leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).   In 2006, Al-Arian pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to make or receive contributions of funds, goods or services for the benefit of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and was sentenced to 57 months in prison. 
  • Sami Al-Arian refused to testify before a Federal Grand Jury regarding other Jihad activities.  U.S. District Judge James Moody ruled that Al-Arian must testify. A Virginia District Court held that Sami Al-Arian had no legal basis to refuse to testify. The court held him in civil contempt, and imprisoned him on November 16, 2006.  Sami Al-Arian was released from prison on June 27, 2014 after the United States Department of Justice dropped charges.
  • Sami Al-Arian served as the Chairman of the Islamic Community of Tampa.    
  • The Islamic Community of Tampa has been a member of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and derived their tax exempt status from ISNA.  Sami Al-Arian’s letter written on Islamic Community of Tampa – Masjid al-Qassam stationery stated “We are an affiliated member of the Islamic Society of North America(ISNA) and derive our tax exempt status under 501 C 3 of the IRS code through them.”  Click here for report regarding concerns about ISNA.   
  • The Islamic Community of Tampa hosted a propaganda event for the Council on America Islamic Relations (CAIR Florida) in February 2012.  Click here for a report regarding concerns about CAIR.

Florida: Imam Chants “Allah Akbar” During 9/11 Memorial

via Imam Chants “Allah Akbar” During 9/11 Memorial At Catholic University In Florida – Shark Tank. by: Javier Manjarres

Considered to be one of the largest Catholic universities in the United States, Barry University, which is nestled in Miami Shores, Florida, hosted an interfaith memorial service to remember the victims of  the 9/11 terror attacks.

According to Laura Loomer, a senior at the university, the service began with Imam Nasir Ahmad, leader of Liberty City’s Mosque Masjid Al Ansar in Miami-Dade County, repeatedly chanting the ominous phrase “Allah Akbar” during his 10-15 minute address.

The phrase Allah Akbar is arabic for “Allah is greatest.”

Loomer said that she, as well as other students and other members of the community, were offended by Ahmad’s use of the phrase during the service, and felt ” insulted that on a day like 9/11 they would allow for a man of Muslim faith to open the service and chant Allah Akbar, the words that suicide bombers and terrorists chant before blowing themselves up.”

Loomer also discussed her concern with two political science professors at Barry University who agreed that her concern was valid.

Those were the last words that many of the 9/11 victims heard before terrorists flew the planes into the Twin Towers, Pentagon, and the field in PA. I know that not all Muslims are extremists, and I’m not promoting hate, but people need to understand that after 9/11, the words Allah Akbar have a negative connotation in the minds of many in the U.S., and on 9/11 people are very sensitive to this topic.

The way the service was organized was blatantly disrespectful to all Americans as well as the victims of terrorism on 9/11. Words can’t even describe how infuriated I am that this happened at my University. I understand the importance of religious tolerance, but on a day of remembrance that is still so raw to people in this country, this was a very embarrassing and disrespectful way to honor the victims who died at the hands of Islamic extremists who exploited the words “Allah Akbar,” especially since the Muslim prayer preceded the Christian and Jewish prayers that were read at the service.

There is a time and place for everything, and I don’t think it is appropriate for someone to be chanting Allah Akbar at a 9/11 memorial service, especially when that person who chanted it is a Muslim religious leader who was invited by Barry University to come and chant.-Laura Loomer

Is chanting “Allah Akbar!” at a 9/11 memorial service any different and equally offensive as a American Christian cleric singing “Proud to be an American” at a memorial service in Japan honoring those who died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki?
The answer is ‘no.’

While Muslim organizations like the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which have been linked to Islamic fundamentalism, will defend the jihadi “battle cry” as just a simple acknowledgment of their god.

The phrase “Allah Akbar!” has a far different significance to Americans, and to the scores of others around the world, who grieve the loss of a loved one that was killed by some Islamic terrorist who cried out Allah Akbar before, during, or after he has carried out his or her cowardly act of terror.

There are countless videos and reports circulating around the world detailing numerous acts of terror by jihadists crying out “Allah Akbar!” as they commit their crimes of beheadings and mass executions.

The two Islamic terrorists who killed a British soldier killed on the streets of London, also cried out “”Allah Akbar!”

After the Towers fell on 9/11, jubilant Palestinians and other Muslims worldwide celebrated by chanting “Allah is greatest” over and over.
The actual Islamic terrorist who carried out the 9/11 attacks were heard screaming “Allah Akbar!” during the hijacking of the plane, and then most recently, U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan, also cried out “Allah Akbar!” before opening fire and killing 13 soldiers at the Fort Hood Army base.

While the case can be made that “Allah Akbar!” is more of a battle cry than anything pro-Islamic groups or leaders would want to have you believe.

Loomer says the prophet Mohammed meant for it to be a “war call,”citing Bukhar Sahih Hadith 5.516, which states that “When Allah’s Apostle fought or raided people we raised our voices saying, ‘Allahu-Akbar! Allahu-Akbar! None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.”

Islamic apologists will bend over backyards to distance Islam from terrorism, but the actions of Islamic militants who cry “Allah Akbar!” as the carry out these acts of terror, make it impossible for anyone to believe that Islam is not inextricably tied to terrorism.

Florida: 2 Muslims arrested after bar fight, threatened to “kidnap an American and behead him”

via 2 arrested after starting bar fight, making threats, Volusia cops say. h/t Atlas

Screen-Shot-2014-09-01-at-4.12.58-PM Screen-Shot-2014-09-01-at-4.15.33-PM

ORMOND BEACH, Fla. – Two men are facing charges after Volusia County deputies said they started a fight at a bar Wednesday night.

Staff at the Jus’ Beachy Bar on Ocean Shore Boulevard claimed they refused to serve alcohol to 54-year-old Faisal Albagdadi and 30-year-old Ahmed Hindi after they walked into the bar already drunk.

“I need cops at Jus’ Beachy Pecker’s Pub immediately. I got a huge fight going. I mean they’re tearing (expletive) up,” the caller told 911 dispatchers. “We wouldn’t even serve him when he came in, he was so drunk.”

Deputies said that’s when the men got angry and attacked the customers.

“They’re using chairs and everything else,” the caller told dispatchers.

Deputies said the men smashed six bar stools, threw several glasses that cut one woman in the eye and beat up a couple of men. At one point, the fight got so out of control, the dispatcher couldn’t get a hold of the caller.

The men took off before deputies arrived, but the caller was able to get their tag number and the description of their car. Ormond Beach police then quickly tracked down the car and arrested the men.

The arrest report showed that not only did Hindi deny initiating the bar fight, deputies said Albagdadi was uncooperative and threatened to “kidnap an American and behead him, once he’s released from jail.”

Both men face criminal mischief and battery charges. The other customers were not seriously injured. However, the men allegedly caused more than $1,200 in damage.

Albagdadi was previously arrested on Aug. 23 for drunk driving charges.

 Why wasn’t he charged with making a terrorist threat? Because the blockers and tacklers (CAIR) for groups like ISIS have ensured that local cops aren’t taught about the jihad threat that Muslims pose.

 

Muslim Leader in Miami Boasts about ‘Conquering’ American Jews

via Palestinian Leader in Miami Boasts about ‘Conquering’ American Jews.

“Praise be to God, each day we conquer the American Jews like our conquests over the Jews of Israel. Your brother, Sofian”

One should know several things about “Brother Sofian”: his full name is Sofian Zakkout; he is a Palestinian “proudly born in Gaza; he lives in Florida; and – despite the outrageous statement above and others like them, the organization he runs is funded by agencies of the U.S. government and has excellent relations with a range of Jewish organizations.

Screenshot of Sofian Zakkout’s Facebook post from July 25, 2014, where he writes only in Arabic: Praise be to God, each day we conquer the American Jews like our conquests over the Jews of Israel.” 
[Text below converted from original format to bullet points to highlight each organization Zakout has fooled]
  • Zakkout served on the US Commission on Civil Rights–Florida State Advisory Committee in 2002-10.
  • In 2005, the FBI attended an event organized by Zakkout’s non-profit, the American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA).  Jeff Green of the FBI’s Miami office explained there: “We just want to let the community know we’re part of the community like they are. We protect the rights they have. Events like this help us to promote a greater understanding of community and law enforcement.”
  •  The Department of Homeland Security awarded $70,000 in 2007 to an organization Zakkout founded, American Muslims for Emergency Relief (AMER).
  • The Miami-Dade County Corps Council awarded Zakkout for his “outstanding” service.
  • Miami-Dade commissioners appointed him to the Community Relations Board and the Asian Advisory Board.
  • Former Broward County Mayor Kristin Jacobs appointed him to the Broward County Diversity Advisory Council.
  • As of 2010, his bio informs us, he was an active board member at Miami Dade County Citizen Corps, Miami-Dade Crime Watch for Citizens, and Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers.

Zakkout boasted in 2011 that “The Justice Department and other government agencies have put my organization’s name on their list of organizations that they are going to work with.”

As for Jewish organizations:

  • He took part in J Street South Florida’s 2012 Passover Seder.
  • He is co-chair of the Jewish-Arab Dialogue Association (JADA). 
  • He spoke at Temple Israel in Miami.  He co-sponsored an “Interfaith Dialogue” at Temple Sinai in North Miami Beach.  At the same synagogue, a rabbi lauded Zakkout in a sermon, no less: “I know you work very hard to build understanding and respect between the Muslim and non-Muslim communities, so again, thank you.”

How can someone delusional about Israel and with such repulsive intentions toward American Jews have these prestigious affiliations and activities?  Simple: In part, by hiding his views from those who would object.  He posted his “conquer the American Jews” statement only in Arabic; in English, he limited himself to less incendiary statements.

In part too, Zakkout spouts politically-correct verbiage that masks his meaning. Witness these lines from AMANA’s website:

 “Our mission at AMANA is to make our communities stronger, safer and best prepared to respond to the danger of Islamophobia and the threats of terrorism, hate crimes, public health issues and disasters of all kinds (may Allah forbid). Our mission is to provide a better understanding of Islam to Muslims and information on Islam and Muslims to non Muslims. Our mission is to build more understanding more knowledge and respect between the Muslim and non-Muslim communities.”

That last sentence stands in stark contrast to his statement that each day “we conquer the American Jews.”

Zakkout was also an organizer of the July 20 anti-Israel demonstration in Miami where the crowd yelled “We are Hamas,” “Hamas kicked your ass,” and “We are Jihad.”  In Arabic, the protestors also chanted “Khaybar, Khaybar, oh Jew, Muhammad’s army will return” a reference to a seventh-century massacre of the Jewish community of Khaybar.


Read it all and if you just read this and carry on business as usual, your children and theirs will be be next because You Did Not Speak Out” (video).

Zakkout is also a CAIR crony, documented by Daniel Pipes:

Zakkout is so close to CAIR, he’s effectively a staff volunteer: he coordinates with it, is quoted by it, seeks help from it, and is listed as a contact by it.

It seems Zakkout is no stranger to law enforcement either, read:

On Oct. 23, 2003, Sheikh Ahmed Hamman Mahmoud Hamman claimed he needed assistance as he boarded Delta Flight 1586. Banducci, who was flight coordinator that day, escorted the Egyptian imam, dressed in a flowing robe, to his seat. As she helped him get seated, Hamman remarked in heavily accented English how good she smelled and asked her name.

As she began to recoil from the bearded man’s passes, he suddenly grabbed her face with one hand and wouldn’t let go. Banducci told him he was hurting her and asked for help from passengers in the immediate area. She was able to pull away, but then His Most Holiness grabbed both her breasts and again would not release his grip. Banducci yelled at him to let go, but he refused, squeezing even harder. Only after she screamed for help and two air marshals broke cover did the man back down.

As authorities questioned him, Hamman acted like he couldn’t speak any English. The Miami-Dade Police Department took him into custody where he was booked the next day for felony battery, the police report says.

A local Muslim leader bailed the violent groper sheikh out of jail. Authorities say a man named Sofian Abdelaziz (aka Sofian Zakout, aka Sofian Abdelaziz-Zakout, aka Sofian Zakkout) representing the American Muslim Association of North America, or AMANA, posted bond for the 35-year-old Hamman, who was visiting Florida during Ramadan. Abdelaziz-Zakkout, a Kuwaiti native, was his trip sponsor.

Political correctness will be the death of America, and indeed western civilization. Why are we afraid to stand up to this clear and present danger?

The death of America will be immigration – not just illegal immigration but immigration of Muslims who have no intention of integrating and living peacefully with non-Muslims.

Surge of Syrian Muslim refugees to hit U.S. in late 2015, Florida doomed

via WMNF 88.5 FM News: Surge of Syrian refugees to U.S. could pick up in late 2015. via Refugee Resettlement Watch.

Nearly 30,000 refugees come into Florida every year from countries all over the world.

With ongoing violence in Syria, Simon Henshaw from the State Department says very few Syrian refugees have arrived in the U.S., but that’s about to change.

“We have pledged to take a significant number and we will start interviewing Syrian refugees soon. But it takes about 18-24 months for someone to run through our system. So, we will not, as a country, see a significant amount of Syrian refugees come into the U.S. until the end of next year and then into 2016.”

Henshaw works in the bureau of population, refugees and migration. He’s visiting Tampa on World Refugee Day to see how Tampa is integrating refugees.

About 4,000 refugees in Florida each year go through a resettlement program where they have legal status in the U.S. to work and drive. One of them is Zeinab Areeba from Baghdad. She fled to Syria during the Iraq war.

The United States spent more than $350 million last year on the refugee resettlement program. Part of that money goes toward a stipend that helps pay for things like rent, food and clothes. Henshaw, from the State Department, says the goal is to have most refugees self-sufficient as soon as possible.

“In a lot of other countries when they take refugees they put them in state programs which gets them dependent and living off the state a long time. We try to cut off our services at about 9-months and there’s always a few cases here and there where there’s difficult circumstances.”

Florida has more refugees than any other state in the country. Because of that, the state also gets the biggest chunk of money. Hiram Ruiz is the state’s director of refugee services. Unlike the federal refugee agency that only stays with clients for a couple of months, Ruiz’s department sticks around for five years.

“What the state does with federal funds is provide the employment services, the English language classes that we observed today. We provide youth services. We do the health screening when they first arrive. We provide legal services to ensure everybody has their documents in order – daycare.”

Ruiz should be investigated and Floridian’s should know how he gets paid, who his backers are and why he is flooding Florida with 3rd world migrants. Putting Florida taxpayers on the hook for at least FIVE YEARS!!! Much longer when all the ancillary expenses add up (disruption to schools, health, law enforcement, jobs, etc.).

Refugees can apply for a green card after one year and then citizenship after five.

Although it doesn’t really matter as they are never sent back.

Georgia already starting receiving Syrian Sunni Muslim warlords immigrants.
