Long Island: Democrat candidate to speak at mosque with 1993 WTC bombing conspirator

via GOP opponent criticizes Kathleen Rice for signing on to speak at Islamic Center of Long Island event – News 12 Long Island.

The Congressional race between Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice and challenger Bruce Blakeman heated up Saturday during a press conference in Manhattan.

Blakeman said his Democratic challenger in the 4th District was set to speak alongside Imam Siraj Wahhaj at an Islamic Center of Long Island event next month. Wahhaj appeared on a list of unindicted co-conspirators in the trial of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

Blakeman said Rice didn’t cancel on the event until it was made public. As of Saturday night, Rice’s name still appeared on the center’s website announcing the November fundraiser.

We’ve written about Siraj Wahhaj numerous times – see posts here. Listen to Siraj Wahhaj call Muslims in America to wage jihad below.
  • states Islam commands jihad of the true soldiers of Allah – listen to the Wahhaj speech
  • advocates the replacement of the U.S. government with an Islamic Caliphate
  • unindicted co-conspirator to the 1993 World Trade Center bombings

Like fellow Dems running for office who support Muslim terrorists.

 

NYC: Muslim Running Halal Cart Feet from Church Parish & Residency

Imagine the outcry if a bbq cart operated just feet from a mosque? via Logan’s Warning.

Recently walking down a NYC street I had noticed a halal cart in a strange location.

I thought it was strange that it was on such a narrow secluded street and so close to a building. Because most of the carts I have seen are located on the corners of blocks in order to maximize the amount of traffic that passes it. At that point I continued to approach the cart to do a further investigation.

The location of the building the Islamobullies are invading is 415W 59St., and it is connected to the St. Paul The Apostle Parish and Residence of Paulist Fathers, which is located around the corner.

After snapping a few pictures I approached a man exiting through a side door of the building. He had told me that besides the mega-Church around the corner, the building addressed 415 also had a private Church and is a residency of the Parish’s Fathers. A call to the Parish confirmed that it was a residency as well.

What was the proximity of Satan’s food cart to the Church?

Muslim Extradited to New York, Planned Terror Training Camp in Oregon

 Like the deadly ebola virus, Obama has imported a growing list of foreign jihadists to U.S. prisons…where they can preach and recruit. via FBI — Haroon Aswat Extradited from the United Kingdom to the Southern District of New York to Face Terrorism Charges.

…(“FBI”), and … (“NYPD”), announced the extradition of HAROON ASWAT from the United Kingdom to face charges of conspiring to provide and providing material support to al Qaeda and terrorists for attempting to establish a terrorist training camp in the United States.

ASWAT was arrested in Zambia in July 2005, and in August 2005, ASWAT was deported from Zambia to the United Kingdom, where he was arrested pursuant to a provisional warrant that was issued in response to a request by the U.S. Government in connection with this case. On September 4, 2014, the United Kingdom ordered ASWAT extradited to the United States on the charges described below. In coordination with British authorities, ASWAT was extradited from the United Kingdom to the Southern District of New York on October 21, 2014. ASWAT will make his first court appearance later today before U.S. District Judge Katherine B. Forrest.

According to the allegations contained in the Indictment, statements made at related court proceedings, and evidence presented at prior trials:

In late 1999, ASWAT, along with co-defendants Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, a/k/a “Abu Hamza” (“Abu Hamza”), Ouassama Kassir, and Earnest James Ujaama, attempted to create a terrorist training camp in the United States to support al Qaeda, which has been designated by the United States Secretary of State as a foreign terrorist organization. ASWAT conspired with Abu Hamza, Kassir, and Ujaama to establish the terrorist training camp on a rural parcel of property located in Bly, Oregon. The purpose of the Bly, Oregon camp was for Muslims to receive various types of training – including military-style jihad training – in preparation to fight jihad in Afghanistan. As used by the conspirators in this case, the term “jihad” meant defending Islam against purported enemies through violence and armed aggression, including, if necessary, by using murder to expel non-believers from Muslim holy lands.

In a letter faxed from Ujaama, in the United States, to Abu Hamza, in the United Kingdom, the property in Bly was described as a place that “looks just like Afghanistan,” and the letter noted that the men at Bly were “stock-piling weapons and ammunition.” In late 1999, after transmission of the faxed letter, Abu Hamza directed ASWAT and Kassir, both of whom resided in London, England, and attended Abu Hamza’s mosque there, to travel to Oregon to assist in establishing the camp. On November 26, 1999, ASWAT and Kassir arrived in New York, and then traveled to Bly.

ASWAT and Kassir traveled to Bly for the purpose of training men to fight jihad. Kassir told witnesses that he supported Usama Bin Laden and al Qaeda, and that he had previously received jihad training in Pakistan. Kassir also possessed a compact disc that contained instructions on how to make bombs and poisons. After leaving Bly, ASWAT and Kassir traveled to Seattle, Washington, where they resided at a mosque for approximately two months. While in Seattle, Kassir, in ASWAT’s presence, provided men from the mosque with additional terrorist training lessons – including instructions on different types of weapons, how to construct a homemade silencer for a firearm, how to assemble and disassemble an AK-47, and how an AK-47 could be altered to be fully automatic and to launch a grenade. On another occasion, with ASWAT sitting by his side, Kassir announced to the men in Seattle that he had come to the United States for martyrdom and to destroy, and he informed his audience that some of them could die or get hurt.

In September 2002, special agents from the FBI recovered a ledger, among other items, from an al Qaeda safe house in Karachi, Pakistan. The ledger listed a number of individuals associated with al Qaeda, including ASWAT. The al Qaeda safe house was used by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, al Qaeda’s chief operational planner and the alleged planner of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The Indictment charges ASWAT, 40, a British citizen, with four offenses that carry the following maximum penalties:

Charge Statutory Violation Maximum Prison Term

Conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists 18 U.S.C. § 371 Five years

Providing material support to terrorists 18 U.S.C. §§ 2339A, 2 10 years

Conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization (al Qaeda) 18 U.S.C. §2339B 10 years

Providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization (al Qaeda)

18 U.S.C. §§ 2339B, 2 10 years

The maximum potential sentences are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as any sentencing of the defendant will be determined by the judge.

 

New York: NYPD confirms hatchet attack on cops a jihad terror attack (updated)

via Man with axe shot dead by police in Queens after random attack | Daily Mail Online.

New York police fear that a crazed hatchet attack on four police officers in Jamaica, Queens, today could be linked to terrorism.

Suspect Zale Thompson, 32, pictured in surveillance footage, was shot dead on the scene after slashing one cop in the arm and the other in the head at around without warning about 2pm.

The officer struck in the head was critically injured.

A 29-year-old female bystander a half-a-block away from the attack was critically injured after being shot by an errant police round. She is currently recovering from surgery at Jamaica Hospital and is listed in ‘grave’ condition.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said he’s not ruling out terrorism especially in the wake of recent terror attacks in Canada, reports CNN.

‘There is nothing we know as of this time that would indicate that were the case. I think certainly the heightened concern is relative to that type of assault based on what just happened in Canada,’ said Bratton.

A Facebook account allegedly tied to Zale Thompson features a photograph of a man dressed in Middle Eastern garb and a cover photo the shows Arabic writing.

The page says that Thompson graduated from Columbia Teacher’s College.

And this from the Daily News:

As investigators were delving into Thompson’s background, they requested search warrants for his home so his computer could be analyzed to identify his online contacts and the type of websites he was visiting. A police source said one of Thompson’s computers contained evidence of web searches about the Islamic State and Afghanistan. But the source said investigators were initially leaning toward a belief that Thompson was mentally disturbed but not linked to a terrorist group.

“That type of question certainly comes to mind,” Bratton said at a 5 p.m. press conference when asked about a connection between Thompson and a terrorist organization. “We really cannot say yes or no to that question. This is an ongoing investigation.”

The Daily News digitally scrambled the attacker’s face but Terror Trends Bulletin had a pic of the perp who seemed to be sporting a jihadi beard:

And this via EOTW:

nyc-attack-tweetCNN video further reported that the NYPD found indications of extremist views on his Facebook page.


Update: It was jihad: Bratton: Hatchet Attack on Cops Was a Lone Wolf “Act of Terror”

A man who assaulted a group of NYPD officers with a hatchet before they shot him dead, committed “an act of terror,” the city’s top cop said Friday.

“We at this time believe that he acted alone,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said Friday. “We would describe him as self-radicalized. We would describe him as self-directed in his activities.”

Asked directly if Thompson could be considered a homegrown terrorist or a “lone wolf,” investigators said “it appears at this point” that terror was the suspect’s “intent,” though police stressed the investigation was in its preliminary stages.

And if more evidence were needed for the deluded Islamophiles:

Last month, Thompson, who says on his Facebook page that he graduated from the Teachers College, Columbia University in New York, commented on YouTube:

“If you’re looking for ‘perfect’ Muslims who never make any mistakes in their Jihad, then you will be looking in vain! If the Zionists and the Crusaders had never invaded and colonized the Islamic lands after WW1, then there would be no need for Jihad! Which is better, to sit around and do nothing, or to Jihad fisabeelallah!”

Thompson’s comment was on a video explaining the idea of creating an Islamic caliphate, or borderless kingdom, which is ISIS’ ultimate aim.

NYPD “Racial Profiling” Video Was Staged…by Muslims

For the umpteenth time: ISLAM IS NOT A RACE! But that doesn’t stop Muslim race hustlers who make money off fake videos. They should donate every penny earned to the NYPD…or a good lawyer.

via Viral NYPD Racial Profiling Video Was Staged | The Smoking Gun.

OCTOBER 21–In a cynical and duplicitous attempt to capitalize on New York City’s documented racial profiling problems, a pair of bloggers have created a video purporting to show an NYPD officer stopping and frisking a pair of Muslim men for the crime of wearing traditional Islamic garments.

But the viral video is a sham, a staged production aimed to go viral and pile up views and YouTube channel subscriptions for its young creators, Brooklynites Adam Saleh and Sheikh Akbar, who get a piece of the revenue generated by ads that run before their videos play.

The duo’s video operation–which is named “TrueStoryASA”–has racked up 60 million YouTube views and has more than 661,000 subscribers on the video-sharing site. While most of the pair’s videos involve pranks, sidewalk attempts at comedy and social commentary, or “Muslim-related stuff,” their latest clip seeks to latch onto an issue that has troubled many New Yorkers and tainted the NYPD.

The purported “Racial Profiling Experiment” undertaken by Saleh and Akbar was filmed on 126th Street in the Willets Point section of Queens, across from Citi Field, home to the New York Mets. The video was shot on a street where many of the businesses–tire outlets, auto repair firms, muffler shops–have been closed or relocated as part of a city redevelopment effort.

An NYPD source who last night viewed the clip at TSG’s request said that an officer from the local police precinct (the 110th in nearby Elmhurst) would not be standing patrol by himself on a deserted street in the middle of the day. As for the purported officer’s frisking technique, the NYPD veteran laughed, “That’s not how they teach you in the academy.” He also remarked that it was “inconceivable” that an officer would ask a Muslim man, “Why are you dressed like this?”

By obscuring the purported cop’s face, Saleh and Akbar have sought to avoid the immediate debunking of their clip, which has already garnered in excess of 30,000 “thumbs up” on YouTube and more than 5200 comments. In their supposed effort to expose racial profiling, the video’s creators have inexplicably–yet conveniently–provided cover for the rogue patrolman, now an electronically blurred boogeyman.

A second source, a recently retired NYPD detective who also watched the “profiling” video at TSG’s request, branded it an “obvious hoax” intended to “smear” police.

If that was the intent of Saleh and Akbar, they appear to have succeeded. According to The Huffington Post, the video provides a “small glimpse into the ugly world of racial profiling.” The news site later updated its piece to indicate that the clip’s authenticity could not be verified, and that NYPD officials are reviewing the video.

Since the video was uploaded to YouTube, Saleh, Akbar, and their friends have been aggressively promoting the clip on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. “Spread the word and bring an end to Racial Profiling,” Saleh wrote. Sheikh told his followers that, “Racial Profiling goes against all equal rights.” He added, “Never expected a reaction like this.”

Saleh and Akbar have not responded to TSG messages sent via Facebook, where each man describes himself as an “Actor/Director.”



Jihad Watch notes that Hamas-linked CAIR was quick to tweet out the video, before realizing the very CAIR-like production was a hoax: Hamas-linked CAIR’s Hooper demands Muslim vloggers apologize for hoax video.

Architect Redesigns Church Destroyed on 9/11 to Resemble Churches that Became Mosques

church-2-popupSt. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church (above), destroyed on 9/11, will overlook the 9/11 Memorial when rebuilt.

stnicholas-rendering

via A Church Near Ground Zero Reimagined – WSJ

Mr. Calatrava designed the church and will attend its groundbreaking on Saturday. If everything goes according to schedule, the building should be finished in 2016 or early 2017.

While the 9/11 Memorial, with its twin reflecting pools and alleys of trees, masterfully creates an opportunity for quiet reflection, there’s also something to be said for a sanctuary with four walls—and perhaps for lighting a memorial candle, no matter what religion you practice, or even if you practice no religion at all.

“All the circumstances around 9/11, the memorial embodies that very well,” Mr. Calatrava said as he sat in the stately Park Avenue townhouse that does double duty as his home and his office.

“This is what I want; this is what the church wants: a very ecumenical place; they would like to have 24 hours the church open.”

But Mr. Calatrava conceded the public has the last word.

Hopefully the public reject it. But the archdiocese seems on board with the ecumenical, non-church church idea: St. Nicholas Church, Destroyed on 9/11, to Rebuild With Byzantine Design

church-1-articleLarge-v3

the reflection looks more mosque-like in this rendering

That a Spanish architect should design a modern Byzantine church in Lower Manhattan for the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, based on buildings in Turkey that were used for Islamic worship, goes to the heart of the message the archdiocese says it hopes to send with the $20 million project. The new St. Nicholas is to open by early 2016.

“If I may quote Jesus, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all people,’ ” said the Rev. Mark Arey, a spokesman for the archdiocese. “It will be open to everyone: the believer, the unbeliever, the Orthodox Christian, the atheist. Whoever you are, this is a space that you can come into and find some meditative solace.”

The architect claims it’s inspiration is two Byzantine churches…later conquered and converted into mosques.

Other than the barely discernible cross on top of the dome there is nothing on the exterior or interior for that matter that even suggests it is a church, never mind a rebuilt St. Nicholas.

At one point the city refused to allow St. Nicholas to rebuild. Was making it a mosque-like structure that would not offend Muslims a requirement for allowing them to rebuild?

This is the Flight 93 Memorial to Islamic Terrorists and Ground Zero Mosque redux.

 

 

NYC: Judge Accepts Muslim’s Guilty Plea in 1998 U.S. Embassy Bombings

…that killed 224 people. via Judge Accepts Guilty Plea in 1998 Embassy Bombings – NYTimes.com.

A federal judge in Manhattan said on Tuesday that he would accept a guilty plea from a terrorism defendant who would face a maximum 25-year prison sentence for charges stemming from Al Qaeda’s 1998 conspiracy to bomb two United States Embassies in East Africa.

The judge, Lewis A. Kaplan of Federal District Court, had recently questioned the wisdom of a deal in which prosecutors allowed the defendant, Adel Abdul Bary, 54, to plead guilty to three counts that carried the maximum 25-year sentence.

Mr. Bary, who was arrested in Britain in 1999 and brought to the United States in 2012, could spend less time in prison if credited with the roughly 15 years he has already served, largely during his unsuccessful extradition battle.

In his ruling, Judge Kaplan said his initial concern was that 25 years “may be too lenient.” But he said prosecutors had suggested that their ability to win a conviction on the charges relating specifically to the embassy bombings — in which 224 people died — was uncertain, and the evidence was “not as strong” as evidence establishing Mr. Bary’s participation in a conspiracy to kill Americans, one of the counts to which he pleaded guilty.

The judge also wrote that if Mr. Bary received credit for the earlier prison time, he would serve until he was in his 60s. “By that time,” Judge Kaplan noted, “he will have spent a substantial amount of his adult life in prison.” He said the government’s decision “was a reasonable one.”

Prosecutors have said Mr. Bary once led the London cell of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, a terrorist group led by Ayman al-Zawahri, now the leader of Al Qaeda. They say Mr. Bary helped Osama bin Laden pass messages to the news media claiming responsibility for the bombings and containing future threats. He is to be sentenced on Jan. 12.
