Florida: Terror-linked CAIR mad stealth textbook dawah to be slowed

via CAIR protests textbook bill; says it’s rooted in anti-Muslim bigotry – BizPac Review.

A bill making its way through the Florida legislature requiring local school districts to review textbooks used in classrooms is now the target of the the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, known as CAIR.

 The group contends that the bill, SB 864: Instructional Materials for K-12 Public Education, introduced by Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, would create an unfunded mandate posing an unnecessary burden on local school districts, according to its statement released Monday, which says:

SB 864 has the potential to jeopardize the entire Sunshine State school system with an unnecessary law for a problem that does not exist by:

  • Imposing a tremendous unfunded mandate on our school districts
  • Depriving school districts of the state’s “economy of scale” in textbook purchasing power
  • Reducing Florida’s influence over textbook content
  • Opening the adoption process to social and political bias
  • Threatening the constitutional requirement for a uniform system of free public schools

However, what is really at stake for the group is its claim that the bill was prompted by anti-Muslim bigotry. Hayes sponsored the bill in response to a history book that residents of Brevard County claimed in July emphasized Islam’s influence on the world while minimizing Christianity and Judaism.

 “World History,” published by Prentice-Hall, “has a 36-page chapter on Islam but no chapters on Christianity or Judaism,” Florida Rep. Ritch Workman, R-Melbourne said. “It’s remarkably one-sided.”

 The dispute eventually spilled over into Volusia County, where critics said the text “whitewashes” the history of Islam.

 The bill is nearing passage in both chambers.

 Sounds more like the stealth dawah that got Islamic propaganda into American textbooks in the first place is about to be challenged. Of course, relying on the government to do what parents should be doing anyway is never a good idea.

NYPD’s ‘Muslim mapping’ saved lives

via NYPD’s ‘Muslim mapping’ saved lives | New York Post.

Federal agents knew that a would-be terrorist had likely arrived in New York City from Florida over Thanksgiving weekend in 2012. However, they didn’t know where in New York City he was — a worrisome prospect, considering that Raees Alam Qazi was gathering information on the best places to detonate bombs in Manhattan, Times Square and Wall Street among them.

The NPYD’s Intelligence Division, it turned out, knew exactly where to look — because it already knew places in the metro area that might be inclined to open their doors for the night to a cash-strapped transient enamored with al Qaeda. It then sent an NYPD undercover officer into one of those locations and confirmed Qazi’s presence there. That allowed federal authorities to initiate surveillance and arrest Qazi on terrorism charges as he stepped off a bus in Ft. Lauderdale on his way home soon thereafter.

Similarly, as Seth Lipsky reported in Thursday’s Post, had the Boston marathon bombers made it to New York with their explosive devices, the NYPD would’ve been in a good position to know where to look for them because of some mapping it had done in Brighton Beach and elsewhere.

These assessments of where a terrorist might land in order to find as cheap place to stay, a job off the books, an Internet café or even a restaurant for comfort food, were done by a small NYPD unit initially called the Demographics Unit and later the Zone Assessment Unit — which was dismantled last week.

Its critics inflated the unit’s role and wrongly painted it as having engaged in unconstitutional spying. Hopefully, terrorists who want to return to kill more New Yorkers don’t believe it’s now easier for them to elude New York law enforcement, or interpret this as a prelude to further dismantling of the NYPD counterterrorism program.

That would be potentially tragic — considering terrorists’ relentless post-9/11 efforts to again target New York.

Vietnam: 7 dead in shootout after border police turn back illegal Muslims

Proving no country is immune from Muslim infiltration immigration and the violence that follows. via Seven killed in China-Vietnam border shootout – Australia Network News. h/t TROP

A deadly gun battle along the China-Vietnam border has left seven people dead, including five Chinese migrants and two Vietnamese border guards.

According to local officials, a shootout erupted when Vietnamese border guards tried to turn back a group of Chinese citizens entering their country illegally.

In a statement, the Quang Ninh provincial government in Vietnam said a total of 16 Chinese nationals, including 10 men, four women and two children were detained after attempting to enter Vietnam.

While Vietnamese authorities were attempting to repatriate them, “some Chinese men in this group seized guns from Vietnamese border guards and shot at them”, the statement said.

The statement also said the firefight erupted despite efforts to calm the situation.

Details of the bloody clash remain scarce and it is unclear if the dead included Chinese women and children.

Vietnamese media has reported that the Chinese citizens were from the far Western Muslim Province of Xinjiang where human rights groups say there is persecution of local ethnic Uighurs.

The area has reported human trafficking and people smuggling cases, including the kidnapping of Vietnamese women forced to marry Chinese men and young boys being kidnapped for sale to rich childless Chinese couples.

Georgia: Muslim murder suspect pens threat-filled letters to area judges

via Murder suspect Fakhir pens threat-filled, rambling letters to area judges – Douglas County Sentinel. h/t Iron Burka

The woman accused of killing Jerry Wheeler last June 18 is still at a state mental health facility in Milledgeville being evaluated and will not have a competency hearing that had been set for Monday in Douglas County Superior Court.

But judging from comments made in two letters written by 33-year-old Sahara Fakhir to area judges, the professionals who will issue a report on her competency have their hands full.

The Sentinel has obtained the hand-written letters, one dated Aug. 5, 2013, to Judge David Emerson and another to Judge William “Beau” McClain dated March 11, 2014, in which Fakhir does everything from apologize, make wild claims and calls judges every name in the book.

Fakhir was arrested and charged with the murder of Wheeler, a 66-year-old local businessman, inside his home on June 18. In preliminary hearings, testimony indicated that Fakhir was seen walking away from the victim’s home on the night of his attack, left her bloody footprints inside the home and had a knife stashed under her mattress that had the victim’s blood inside the handle.

Fakhir threatened to bring destruction to the courthouse and to Douglas County when she made her initial court appearance. in her letters, she said that some of her claims are coming to pass. She even took credit for District Attorney David McDade’s health problems.

McDade endured five surgical procedures and more than a month of intensive care after circulation issues were found on Dec. 5 when he was seeking to get clearance for back surgery. An ultrasound found almost total blockage. Doctors thought for a time that they would have to amputate his lower right leg and possibly the same on his left. He said it was those health issues that led him to the decision to retire at the end of April.

Fakhir wrote: “You think David McDade’s sickness is a coincidence? Did I not tell you that Allah said for me to tell you that he was ‘fed up with the Douglas County GA Judicial system and that he will again visit Douglasville with another unrelenting chastisement.’”

Fakhir calls McClain a “filthy, nasty, low-down, law-breaking pathetic, scum dog rat,” a “snake,” “you criminal in a black cape,” and threatens a type of holy war. She tells McClain that she will not work with her court-appointed attorneys Wesley Wolverton and Jim Kiger because they are “atheists.”

Fakhir in a court appearance claimed that Allah would serve as her attorney. In letters, she said Allah would provide “destruction of a courthouse by the power of a violent, turbulent windstorm,” and she threatened a judge’s freedom and his life at Allah’s hands.

Allah is planning on killing you with his own hands – his own unique, unconquerable strength and yet you dare challenge his authority by oppressing me in violation of my religion and the Miranda Rights law, and in addition to that, you are planning to take my life?” Fakhir wrote in a letter to Judge McClain. “Allah will end up destroying you before you can do it.”

Do the letters point to religious fanaticism, mental illness or someone trying to beat the system?

Here’s a better question: Why are so many Muslims criminal, insane or both? Convert or otherwise.

Michigan: Muslim women wear gloves to avoid shaking hands with infidel men

via The Arab American News – Local Muslims, scholars weigh in on shaking hands with the opposite sex.

DEARBORN—Many Muslim women who wear the hijab will tell you they have experienced that awkward moment. A man will reach out his hand to greet her in a professional setting, and she will have to make an impulsive decision on whether she should reciprocate the gesture.

For Muslims living in the U.S., greeting the opposite sex by shaking hands could create a dilemma. Many Muslims believe that shaking hands with members of the opposite sex is not permissible, unless the two individuals are blood-related or married.

While this Islamic teaching has been enforced in the religion for hundreds of years, in modern day society, some Muslims will make exceptions to adapt to their westernized settings.

“I’ve been put in awkward situations myself, I know it can get uncomfortable,” said Noha Beydoun, a local Dearborn resident.

Beydoun, now in her mid-20s, made her journey to Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimmiage to Mecca, when she was 19. Growing up in Dearborn, she says she would always greet the opposite sex by putting her hand on her heart. However, after graduating college and entering a professional setting, she concluded that shaking hands with a male may be permissible at times.

“I’m not a religious scholar, this is my own personal opinion. I know it’s haram to shake hands, but I think it depends on the context. Because we live in the U.S., we can scare people away from this amazing, sweet, welcoming religion by doing something that a Western person is not used to,” Beydoun noted.

Beydoun says that she will do her best to avoid a handshake, but if a male reaches out to shake her hand at work, she will have to make a quick determination. Sometimes she will wear gloves prior to showing up to a setting if she knows she is going to be meeting new people.

“Just in case I come across that male who forgets unintentionally, I’ll wear a glove to spare him the embarrassment. The intention of this is to protect women but you also don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings,” Beydoun adds.

imams encourage Muslims to educate Americans who may not be familiar with the religion’s customs and laws, because most of the time they will be receptive to learning more about the culture and religion.

It’s called dawah. And they want Americans to accommodate Islamic sharia law.

Extend your hand to the next Muslim woman you see and see how she reacts.

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.

Al Jazeera America lays off dozens, disbands sports as advertisers flee

Keep up the pressure! via FFA

Your support of Florida Family Association’s efforts is making a difference.

The Hollywood Reporter headline states Dozens Laid Off at Al Jazeera America and subhead line reports The cable news network is disbanding its sports unit and scaling back its social media program, “The Stream.”  Click here to read the entire article at Hollywoodreporter.com.

Al Jazeera is a news company that is owned by a non-democratic, monarch styled emirate who does not afford citizens freedom of the press, espouses Islamic Sharia law, backs the leader of Hamas and supports the Muslim Brotherhood.  Al Jazeera, headquartered in the Middle East (Doha, Qatar), purchased the CurrentTV channel at the end of 2012 and officially changed its name to Al Jazeera America on August 20, 2013.

Florida Family Association has focused on influencing companies to stop advertising on Al Jazeera America since January 14, 2013 with the goal of PREVENTING:

  • American consumer dollars from supporting this Hamas – Muslim Brotherhood supporting Jihad TV in the United States.
  • American corporations from affirming this network with their sponsorship.

Florida Family Association tapes ten hours of programing on Al Jazeera America every day.  The Florida Family Association office communicates with each advertiser no less than once per week.  Top advertisers are strategically featured one at a time because there are so few of them.  The RESULTS of Florida Family Association’s efforts:

  • 133 companies stopped advertising on Al Jazeera America after the Florida Family Association office communicated with the companies’ CEOs and Marketing VPs.
  • 22 companies stopped advertising after Florida Family Association supporters sent tens of thousands of emails in response to online email campaigns at Floridafamily.org.
  • A total of 155 companies stopped advertising after receiving emails from the Florida Family Association office or after receiving thousands of emails from Florida Family Association supporters.
  • Not one Fortune 500 company has advertised on Al Jazeera America since Florida Family Association’s email campaigns and airplane banners influenced Procter & Gamble to stop advertising on October 6, 2013.  Only one Fortune 1000 company, Expedia.com, has advertised.
  • Less than ten companies have advertised during any one week since October 6, 2013.  Approximately fifty companies advertised each week when Florida Family Association started contacting advertisers of the then named Current TV channel in January 2013.  All but one of the ten current advertisers are very small companies.

All major cable and satellite companies are carrying Al Jazeera America.  These television providers along with other media are being paid hundreds of millions of dollars by Al Jazeera to promote the American channel.  Making an issue of or focusing efforts on one cable company or one promotional forum broadcasting or promoting Al Jazeera America would have little impact

However, influencing companies to stop advertising on Al Jazeera America will have an impact.  Significantly reducing the American consumer dollars that would have supported Jihad TV and the number of American corporations that would have affirmed this network should make a difference.

No advertising dollars for Al Jazeera America means no revenue to cover the American division’s operations and no advertising dollars for the cable companies.  How long will the channel or cable companies continue under that scenario?

Florida Family Association is committed to this project for as long as Al Jazeera America is on the air.

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has supported Florida Family Association’s email campaigns regarding Al Jazeera America.  Your support is making a difference.  Thank you.

Oregon jihad training camp showed “how to properly slice someone’s throat”

via Witness recalls demo in ‘how to slit a throat’ as terror trial opens – latimes.com. h/t Atlas

On a ranch in rural Oregon, a radical Muslim holding a dagger with a curved blade yanked back the head of a kneeling young man and brought the metal to his neck.

He said he was going to show us how to properly slice someone’s throat,” the kneeling man’s sister testified Thursday as prosecutors began presenting their case against an Egyptian-born imam known as Abu Hamza Masri, the latest terrorism case to unfold in a New York federal court.

Masri, who also goes by Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, was not the man holding the knife, but a government indictment alleges that he sent the knife-wielding man from London to Oregon to establish a terrorist training camp.

It is one of 11 charges against Abu Hamza Masri, a naturalized British citizen who gained fame for his radical sermons in London’s Finsbury Park mosque and who was extradited to the United States in October 2012.

The prosecution’s first witness was Angelica Morris, who was living in a trailer on the Bly ranch with her husband, daughter, son and younger brother in December 1999, when two mysterious men speaking with British accents arrived unannounced late one night.

Both men had long hair and long beards, both dressed in black, and both regularly patrolled the sprawling ranch with guns late at night during their roughly monthlong stay, said Morris. The pair often led other men on their night patrols across the ranch and had them fire pistols, shotguns and rifles down the dry creek bed running through the property, she said.

One day, Morris said the man known as Abu Abdullah took her and her brother, who was 18, outside to demonstrate throat-cutting techniques.

He asked my brother if he would kill a kaffir,” Morris said, defining “kaffir” as a Muslim term for someone who rejects Islam. “I’ve killed sheep, so I don’t know why I couldn’t,” Morris recalled her brother replying.

At that point, Morris said, Abu Abdullah had her brother kneel in front of him and made a slicing motion across her brother’s neck without cutting the skin.

Abu Abdullah eventually left the knife with Morris, who years later turned it over to the FBI. In court, Kim drew the knife out of an envelope and held it up for jurors.

In addition to weapons, Morris said the two men brought British currency. Both said the money was from Abu Hamza Masri, Morris testified. Abu Abdullah specifically told her that “Sheikh Abu Hamza had sent him there to train the brothers,” she said.

Morris, who has left Islam and now lives in Louisiana, described phone calls between Abu Abdullah and Masri which took place in her family’s cramped trailer. She said Abu Abdullah appeared frustrated that there were not more guns or “brothers” on the ranch and felt it was not a suitable training situation.

 

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.

France: Muslim unfolds prayer carpet in church, reads Koranic verses during Easter mass

Easter is just an innovation according to Muslims. via France: Muslim unfolds prayer carpet in church and reads Koranic verses during Easter mass | Diversity Macht Frei.

The worshippers present at the scene were dumbfounded. This Sunday morning, in a collegiate church full to bursting, a man wearing a djellaba and headgear came to pray. He laid a carpet to the left of the altar, while the Easter mass was underway.

The man, visibly disturbed, read verses from the Koran before writing some lines in Arabic in the parish register. After having caused disruption for the first time during the mass on Palm Sunday one week ago in la Bedugue then in the collegiate church, some worshippers had warned the police.

A team came to ask him to leave the premises, calmly. The deputy commissioner, who had been notified of this disruption to public order, insisted on specifying: “We don’t need to generalise. This inappropriate attitude comes from an individual who is clearly disturbed.”

The Middle East War on Christians

via The Middle East War on Christians – WSJ.com.

The Middle East may be the birthplace of three monotheistic religions, but some Arab nations appear bent on making it the burial ground for one of them. For 2,000 years, Christian communities dotted the region, enriching the Arab world with literature, culture and commerce. At the turn of the 20th century, Christians made up 26% of the Middle East’s population. Today, that figure has dwindled to less than 10%. Intolerant and extremist governments are driving away the Christian communities that have lived in the Middle East since their faith was born.

In the rubble of Syrian cities like Aleppo and Damascus, Christians who refused to convert to Islam have been kidnapped, shot and beheaded by Islamist opposition fighters. In Egypt, mobs of Muslim Brotherhood members burn Coptic Christian churches in the same way they once obliterated Jewish synagogues. And in Iraq, terrorists deliberately target Christian worshippers. This past Christmas, 26 people were killed when a bomb ripped through a crowd of worshipers leaving a church in Baghdad’s southern Dora neighborhood.

Christians are losing their lives, liberties, businesses and their houses of worship across the Middle East. It is little wonder that native Christians have sought refuge in neighboring countries—yet in many cases they find themselves equally unwelcome. Over the past 10 years, nearly two-thirds of Iraq’s 1.5 million Christians have been driven from their homes. Many settled in Syria before once again becoming victims of unrelenting persecution. Syria’s Christian population has dropped from 30% in the 1920s to less than 10% today.

In January, a report by the nondenominational Christian nonprofit organization Open Doors documented the 10 most oppressive countries for Christians; nine were Muslim-majority states noted for Islamic extremism, and the 10th was North Korea. These tyrannical regimes uphold archaic blasphemy and defamation-of-religion laws under the guise of protecting religious expression. In truth, these measures amount to systematic repression of non-Islamic groups.

Last year in Saudi Arabia, two men were prosecuted for the “crime” of converting a woman to Christianity and helping her flee the Islamic kingdom. According to the Saudi Gazette, one of the men, a Lebanese, was sentenced to six years in prison and 300 lashes, and the other man, a Saudi, was sentenced to two years and 200 lashes. Those are relatively mild sentences in Saudi Arabia, where conversion to another religion is punishable by death.

The “justice system” in other Islamic nations is not particularly just for Arab citizens, but it is uniquely oppressive for Christians. Radical Islamists in the northern Syrian city of Raqqa are using an ancient law called the “dhimmi pact” to extort local Christians. The community is faced with a grim choice: pay a tax and submit to a list of religious restrictions or “face the sword.”

In the Islamic Republic of Iran, expressions of political dissent are regarded as acts of blasphemy. Last summer, three Iranian Christians caught selling Bibles were found guilty of “crimes against state security” and sentenced to 10 years in prison. They were relatively lucky. The regime has executed dozens of people for the so-called crimes of “waging war against God” and “spreading corruption on Earth.”

The scene unfolding in the Middle East is ominously familiar. At the end of World War II, almost one million Jews lived in Arab lands. The creation of Israel in 1948 precipitated an invasion of five Arab armies. When they were unable to annihilate the newborn state militarily, Arab leaders launched a campaign of terror and expulsion that decimated their ancient Jewish communities. They succeeded in purging 800,000 Jews from their lands.

Graham: Muslims Who ‘Want to Practice Sharia Law’ Should ‘Go Back Where You Came From’

via Rev. Graham: Muslims Who ‘Want to Practice Sharia Law’ Should ‘Go Back Where You Came From’ | CNS News.

In a recent interview with the Charlotte Observer, Graham was asked, “Some say you demonize Islam, and Christians in this country have opposed building a mosque or are worried about Sharia law. Isn’t it –”

Graham, who oversees the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, said, “We should be afraid of Sharia law. We should be absolutely afraid of it. No question about it, because there’s no tolerance in Sharia law. It persecutes those that do not believe in Islam.”

“And I would say to Muslims in this country, if they want to practice Sharia law, go back to where you came from, to those nations that recognize sharia law,” said Graham.  “But we have our own laws here.”

To which many ignorant Muslims and non-Muslims alike will respond, “we were born here,” either converted or not first generation. And that is why we need to ban immigration of Muslims because it is Muslims who come here and preach in mosques, are funded by Saudi’s and others, that devote significant resources to dawah and converting non-Muslims and for lack of a better word, “radicalize” people to believing sharia should be the law of the land.

Then there are those first generation Muslim immigrants who espouse sharia and lied to get into the U.S. bringing us right back to the point of banning immigration for sharia adherents. 

As their numbers grow, the more bold they will become.

 

Maryland: Muslim immigrant gets five years in jihad plot on cartoonist

Why isn’t he being deported?

mohammad-khalid

via Maryland Man Receives Five-Year Prison Sentence for European Terror Plot

A federal judge sentenced an Ellicott City man to five years in prison for aiding a group of people who were planning terror attacks in Europe, a less severe sentence than prosecutors had sought.

Mohammad Hassan Khalid, a Pakistani immigrant from Ellicott City who graduated from Mt. Hebron High School in 2011, pleaded guilty to providing material support to terrorists in federal court in Philadelphia in May 2012. He was arrested when he was 17 on charges of providing material support to terrorism; prosecutors had asked that he receive a 10-year prison sentence.

Khalid, 20, admitted in court to aiding the would-be terrorist nicknamed “Jihad Jane” and apologized to his parents as he was sentenced to five years in a U.S. prison, reports the Military.com website. He cried during parts of the sentencing hearing Thursday in Philadelphia, while his parents, brother and sisters wept.

Khalid’s time in prison is likely to be short because he gets credit for almost three years incarceration since his arrest, but he is likely to be deported to Pakistan once he completes his sentence.

At the time of his arrest, he was about to enter Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore on a full scholarship, the website says.

Once again obliterating the myth that jihadists are poor and uneducated. Quite the contrary, read Queen Mary Univ: Radicals More Likely to be Well-Off, Educated.

“I stand before your honor humiliated,” he told the judge. “Nothing I say today can excuse the mistakes of my past.”

Court documents state Khalid helped a Pennsylvania woman, Colleen LaRose, remove incriminating postings from an online message board and created posts seeking money for LaRose’s group in Europe. LaRose, who is called “JihadJane” after her online name, was sentenced to 10 years in prison this winter for her involvement in the terror plot.

LaRose was plotting with others in Europe to kill a Swedish artist over a cartoon that offended Muslims, according to an Associated Press report.

An attorney for Khalid told the Baltimore Sun that associating with the group “was like a video game to him” and that a 10-year sentence would be “ridiculous.”

Since being arrested, prosecutors said that Khalid cooperated with the FBI, helping with terrorist investigations and that he “may have learned respect for the law.”

Khalid was living in the United States legally.

 Again we ask, why isn’t he being deported?

Michigan: Governor creates Arabic brochure to lure foreigners from Middle East

Rather than give American citizens and small businesses incentives to take risk and create businesses and jobs, Michigan’s Republican governor is giving breaks to lure foreigners.

michigan-arabic-brch

via Michigan looks to Asia, Middle East in bid to lure foreign investors, job creators | MLive.com. h/t D

Michigan is also looking to tap investors in the Middle East and has already produced an Arabic brochure.

“One of our strongest selling points is we have one of the largest concentrations of Arabs outside of the Middle East,” Borgstrom [Director State of Michigan EB-5 Regional Center] said, referring to Dearborn. “That creates a lot of connections, and there’s a lot of interest there. One of the things we tend to lose sight of is that the United States is still the gold-standard for places to live.”

Snyder, calling himself the most pro-immigration governor in the country and earning national attention in the process, has promoted several strategies for attracting legal immigrants and foreign investors to Michigan.

He recently signed an executive order to create the Michigan Office for New Americans. He asked the Obama administration to earmark 50,000 EB-2 visas for Detroit over the next five years and led the push for the EB-5 Regional Center.

Michigan’s new status as a federally designated center for an increasingly popular investor visa program — just the second of its kind in the nation — will uniquely position the state to attract foreign capital and create local jobs, according to experts and stakeholders.

United States Customs and Immigration expedited and approved Michigan’s application to run its own EB-5 Regional Center, the Snyder administration announced this week, citing support from the governor, the state’s entire Congressional delegation and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.

The federal EB-5 visa program is designed to attract “entrepreneur aliens” by offering them a green card in exchange for domestic investments that produce at least 10 new jobs in the U.S.

Immigrants can qualify by devoting $500,000 to a project in a high-unemployment or rural area, of which there are 433 in Michigan, or $1 million in a more affluent part of the state.

Civitas runs eight EB-5 Regional Centers, including one in partnership with Dallas, where Healy said foreign investment helped breathe new life into a former casket factory on the city’s south side, which has was redeveloped as a 76-room boutique hotel.

The project coupled $5.5 million from 11 foreign investors with municipal grants and federal tax credits, and it hints at similar possibilities for Detroit or other urban centers in Michigan.

The EB-5 visa program, streamlined in 2011, has seen significant growth in recent years. In fiscal year 2013, nearly 6,500 foreign investors applied for visas under the program, according to The Wall Street Journal. As of September, USCIS had approved 3,696 of those applications and denied 942.

Streamlined? Ripe for fraud?

Immigrants who win an EB-5 visa or green card are not required to live in the same state as they invest in, but Michigan officials are already promoting the state as a place to invest — and to raise a family.

“The pitch is that we don’t just want your money, we want you here,” Borgstrom told MLive, noting he has traveled to China, Turkey, Egypt and Saudi Arabia to begin discussions and gauge interest from potential investors. “We find a lot of value in having a large immigrant population in the state.”

It would be challenging to pick four other countries more anathema to American values.

Chinese nationals are by far the most active participants in the foreign investor program, having obtained roughly 90 percent of all EB-5 visas issued last year, and Metro Detroit’s growing Asian population could make it an attractive landing spot for new entrepreneur immigrants.

Democrats ran Detroit into the ground, making themselves rich, now Republicans are selling it to foreigners.
