The CSRL (Community Service Recognition Luncheon) is a program hosted by ISNA and the ISNA Founders’ committee (IFC) to recognize an outstanding leader in the North American Muslim community. We are expecting more than 1000 guests to join this event which will take place at the Cobo Center on Saturday August 30, 2014. Tickets can be purchased online as part of the ISNA Annual Convention Registration.

Background on ISNA via gmbwatch:

As documented in a Hudson Institute report, ISNA grew directly out of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. The organization has a long history of fundamentalism, anti-semitism, and support for terrorism and during the recent Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial, ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator as a result of what the government called “ISNA’s and NAIT’s intimate relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood, the Palestine Committee, and the defendants in this case.”

 And so Carter fits in well with this terror-linked group, as past Creeping Sharia posts have proven:

Philadelphia: Mayor Nutter Praises Hamas-linked CAIR at Airport Exhibit

Mayor Nutter, again partnering with the Hamas-linked CAIR.

via Mayor Of Philadelphia Praises CAIR At Airport Exhibit Which Includes Photo Of ‘CAIR In Action’ – Militant Islam Monitor – Militant Islam Monitor.

Opening of Airport Exhibit

Last week, Katera Moore, CAIR-Philadelphia Executive Committee Member, and I had the honor to be invited guests at the official opening of an exhibit at the Philadelphia International Airport called “Civil Rights in Philadelphia” that includes a photograph of a CAIR-Philadelphia action.

Moore & Bender are Hamas-CAIR representatives

The opening of this exhibit, in the airport’s Terminal AE, marks the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 by President Lyndon Johnson, with Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. in attendance at the White House Ceremony.

Mayor Nutter, in his remarks, spoke movingly about how this law changed the face of American society and lead directly to the election of African Americans to public office.

And I was thrilled as well when the Mayor specifically mentioned CAIR-Philadelphia and great work we do protecting the civil rights of Muslim Americans.

MIM: Given the fact that CAIR is a defendent in a lawsuit claiming their complicity in the 9/11 attacks it is an outrage that any of their members should be allowed in the vicinity of an airport let alone have their organisation lauded and included in a picture exhibition on civil rights.

“A class action lawsuit in the name of John P. O’Neill, Sr., stemming from the 9/11 atrocity, has named the Council on American-Islamic Relations as a defendant. (For those confused about the multiple 9/11 court cases, there is help on the way at http://www.september11terrorlitigation.com/.) Here are the paragraphs of Estate of John P. O’Neill, Sr. et al. vs. Al Baraka Investment and Development Corporation dealing with CAIR’s role in the events of September 11, 2001, from the second amended class action complaint, filed today:

86. Council on American Islamic Relations and CAIR Canada (collectively, CAIR), have aided, abetted, and materially sponsored and al Qaeda and international terrorism. CAIR is an outgrowth of the Hamas front group the Islamic Association of Palestine. The FBI’s former associate director in charge of Investigative and Counter-Intelligence Operations described the Islamic Association of Palestine as an organization that has directly supported Hamas military goals and is a front organization for Hamas that engages in propaganda for Islamic militants. It has produced videotapes that are very hate-filled, full of vehement propaganda. It is an organization that has supported direct confrontation.

87. CAIR and CAIR-Canada have, since their inception, been part of the criminal conspiracy of radical Islamic terrorism. These organizations play a unique role in the terrorist network. They emanate from the notorious HAMAS terrorist organization and like so many of the terrorism facilitating charities named and indicted by the United States government they are engaged in fund raising under the guise of assisting humanitarian causes they are, in reality, a key player in international terrorism. The unique role played by CAIR and CAIR-Canada is to manipulate the legal systems of the United States and Canada in a manner that allows them to silence critics, analysts, commentators, media organizations, and government officials by leveling false charges of discrimination, libel, slander and defamation. In addition, both organizations have actively sought to hamper governmental anti-terrorism efforts by direct propaganda activities aimed at police, first-responders, and intelligence agencies through so-called sensitivity training. Their goal is to create as much self-doubt, hesitation, fear of name-calling, and litigation within police departments and intelligence agencies as possible so as to render such authorities ineffective in pursuing international and domestic terrorist entities.

88. The role of CAIR and CAIR-Canada is to wage PSYOPS (psychological warfare) and disinformation activities on behalf of Whabbi-based [Wahhabi-based, DP] Islamic terrorists throughout North America. They are the intellectual “shock troops” of Islamic terrorism. In the years and months leading up to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 these organizations were very effective in helping to ensure that North American law enforcement and intelligence officials were sufficiently deaf, dumb, and blind to help pave the way for the attacks on the United States. The role played by these entities is an absolutely essential part of the mix of forces arrayed against the United States as they help soften-up targeted countries so as to facilitate and enhance the likelihood for a successful attack…”

Florida: Hamas spray painted on cars, swastikas on synagogue

Shortly after a CAIR-sponsored Hamas rally.

via Synagogue Vandalized In NE Miami-Dade « CBS Miami. h/t BNI

safe_image.php_1

(CBSMiami) – For the second time in as many days, messages of hate targeted members of South Florida’s Jewish community.

Early Monday morning, spray painted swastikas and the word “Hamas” were discovered on the pillars in front of the Congregation Torah Ve’emunah, at 1000 NE 175th Street, in northeast Miami-Dade.

“It was the worst thing that one wants to see on his own place of worship,” said a member of the temple.

A member of the community watch discovered the vandalism around 1 a.m.

“As I was rolling by I noticed some coloring on the wall,” said Yona Lunger. “I back up again, looked again and I said ‘wow, it’s a swastika’. It’s very disturbing, very disturbing.”

On Saturday, a family who lives along Meridian Avenue in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood of Miami Beach found their cars had been vandalized as they left to attend a service at their synagogue.

“They wrote “Hamas” on the back of the car window and they wrote “Jew,’” said Joshua, who didn’t want us to publish his last name.

The two vehicles were covered with eggs and smeared with cream cheese, but it’s the meaning behind the words that left many in the predominantly Jewish community concerned.

“Since it was a Jewish holiday people were going back and forth and it was the talk of the neighborhood and they were all scared,” added Joshua. “That we have a hate crime in our own Jewish neighborhood.”

“Everyone was shocked,” said Rachel, whose car was also targeted. “No one knew what was going on, we’re like this is America, this is Miami. Why would we be targeted here? We’re supposed to be safe, free from anti-semitism.

With the escalating aggression between Israel and Hamas in the Middle East, some are wondering if the right abroad has now made it to their own home turf.

“It’s terrible and it really shows that the Islamic terrorists have taken this fight to the United States,” said Mark Goldstein.

It shows that any Muslim in the U.S. at any time can and eventually will show their true colors.

As the deadly month of jihad closes, Obama extends ‘warmest wishes to Muslims’

via The White House:

Office of the Press Secretary

Statement by the President on the Occasion of Eid-al-Fitr

As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families.  This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate.  While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.

In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.

History is clear that no Muslim contributed to the fabric of the United States, so the question to be asked is the nuance of Obama’s statement. What nation is he referring to when he says “our nation”?

That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities.

On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration.  Eid Mubarak.

As has been noted repeatedly, Ramadan is the “month of jihad” and Muslims worldwide have proven that again this year with deadly results.

In the United States, Hamas is here. They’ve been here. Now they are coming out of the closet. They are growing more violent and more emboldened as local police and the race-baiting DOJ do absolutely nothing.

As their numbers grow, so will their violence.

Miami: “We are Hamas” Muslims threaten to kill Jewish reporter (video)

One of the breaking news elements of this story is that CAIR, the self-proclaimed “civil-rights” organization for Muslims sponsored an outright HAMAS demonstration where the participants, when not assaulting the reporter, were shouting historic death threats to Jews and shouting complete and comprehensive unity with the HAMAS, as in “WE ARE HAMAS!”

During the confrontation one of the HAMAS pulled out an improvised weapon and moved in to stab the Jewish reporter before someone stopped him while another CAIR jihadist made a clear, direct and profound threat to kill the reporter.

Philadelphia: City Hall turns into mosque for taxpayer-funded Iftar service

via Iftar service in City Hall a success.

The City of Philadelphia held its 2nd annual Iftar, in recognition of Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting, on July 15 at the Mayor’s Reception Hall.

Roughly 200 people, including Muslim community leaders, business professionals and elected officials attended the Iftar, which is the “nightly meal eaten by Muslims who have fasted during the day as an observation of Ramadan.”

“The most outstanding thing is the opportunity for unity in the Islamic community,” said Salima Suswell, an event spokesperson. She added that “like many religions” the different congregations within Islam “don’t get to share time with each other because they are so busy working in their respective communities. The Iftar is an opportunity for them to get together and celebrate the month of Ramadan.”

The ceremony featured youth presentations, a Maghrib prayer, spoken word and remarks from Mayor Michael Nutter; Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. and Ryan N. Boyer, business manager for the Laborers District Council, who hosted the Iftar; Katera Y. Moore, of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR); and Khalid Blankinship. Ph.D., who gave the keynote address.

“Philadelphia is a city founded on the principles of religious freedom and tolerance [and] I have tremendous respect for the many, many members of the Muslim community,” Nutter said.

“And we all would do well to better understand the many religions practiced in our city, across the country and around the world. The people in Philadelphia who practice the faith of Islam are people who worship regularly, look after their children, are actively engaged in their community and are peace loving, law abiding citizens of Philadelphia.”

Ohio: Muslim doctor guilty, hit and killed motorcyclist, didn’t even leave car to render aid

via Physician loses driver’s license for year in death – Toledo Blade.

Moments after a local physician was found guilty of vehicular manslaughter Thursday for striking and killing a Swanton area motorcyclist, Debbie Hilton summed up the last hours of her husband’s life.

“All Larry was doing on the morning of Aug. 30 was going to work at a job he loved on the bike he loved after kissing the wife he loved,” Mrs. Hilton said in an emotional statement to the court.

She, along with her daughter, Kristina Freeman and sons, Paul and Dan, described Lawrence J. Hilton to Toledo Municipal Judge Timothy Kuhlman as a husband and father they loved and the crushing loss they suffered the day he left for work at the University of Toledo for the last time.

“He was the rock in our family,” Mrs. Freeman said. “He was the ultimate source of comfort and reassurance. He was simply golden, but he is gone now.”

Dr. Nabil Ebraheim, 63, of 2935 Valley View Dr., Ottawa Hills, was southbound on Richards Road just before 6 a.m. that day when he stopped at the intersection of Dorr Street, then pulled out in front of Mr. Hilton, 54, who was eastbound on Dorr.

In a one-day trial before Judge Kuhlman, city prosecutors and defense attorneys called a series of police officers and accident reconstructionists to testify to the speed they estimated Mr. Hilton was traveling, whether or not he applied his front brakes, and whether Dr. Ebraheim could have seen the motorcycle — which had the right of way — coming.

Speed estimates ranged from 47 mph to 71 mph. The posted speed limit on Dorr Street at the time was 50 mph.

Defense attorney Jerry Phillips had argued Mr. Hilton forfeited the right of way because he was driving too fast for the early morning conditions, but the judge disagreed.

In rendering his guilty verdict, Judge Kuhlman said the motorcyclist’s true speed was “likely somewhere in the middle.”

“I do not believe the motorcycle was going as high as 65 or 71 mph. I don’t see that from the damage to the vehicle,” the judge said, adding that Mr. Hilton’‍s speed was not unreasonable. “In other words, a reasonable, ordinary, prudent person in Dr. Ebraheim’s position would have been able to see that motorcycle and yield to that motorcycle.”

After hearing from Mr. Hilton’s relatives, the judge suspended Dr. Ebraheim’s driver’s license for one year except for granting driving privileges for work. He ordered him to pay a $750 fine and court costs within a week, complete a defensive-driving course, and attend a victim-impact panel.

Mr. Hilton’‍s family told the court he loved his Harley-Davidson Street Glide and valued safety — never riding without a helmet or getting a speeding ticket.

Mrs. Hilton said Dr. Ebraheim had six previous traffic citations, and when her husband became his seventh, he did not even get out of his car to render aid. She said he later had his wife pick him up to take him to work.

“My husband was nothing more to you than an inconvenience, making you late for work,” she said.

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Florida Muslim suicide bomber featured in new jihadi video

via Al-Qaeda group releases video of American suicide bomber in Syria | NOLA.com.

An al-Qaida-linked group fighting in Syria has released video of the first American to carry out a suicide attack in the country’s civil war, showing him smiling and saying he looked forward to going to heaven.

The Nusra Front released the new video late Friday showing American citizen Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha, 22, with other fighters before the May 25 attack that targeted several army positions at the same time. It said two of the other three suicide attackers in the assault in the government-held northwestern city of Idlib were from foreign countries, including one who was identified as being from the Maldives.

Abu-Salha appears smiling in the video and speaks in broken Arabic.

“I want to rest in the afterlife, in heaven. There is nothing here and the heart is not resting,” Abu-Salha says. “Heaven is better. When people die they either go to heaven or hell. There is happiness beyond explanation.”

The video, released by Nusra Front’s media arm, al-Manara al-Baydha, was posted on jihadi websites. It corresponded with Associated [with terrorists] Press reporting about the attack and Abu-Salha.

Opposition forces previously identified the American who carried out the bombing as Abu Hurayra al-Amriki and said he was a U.S. citizen. The name al-Amriki means “the American” in Arabic.

Abu-Salha grew up in Florida and attended several colleges before dropping out and moving abroad.

Congress Seeks to Designate Muslim Brotherhood as Terror Group

WTF took so long? With that out of the way, there are more Muslim Brotherhood moles in the U.S. government than co-sponsors of this bill, but let’s get every elected official on record with a vote. This should be telling. via Congress Seeks to Designate Muslim Brotherhood as Terror Group | Washington Free Beacon.

Congress is moving to officially designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) and impose sanctions on any person who provides the group and its affiliates with “material support,” according to a copy of the legislation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Read the legislation, H.R.5194.

The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014—sponsored by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R., Minn.)—seeks to slap U.S. sanctions on the organization’s political center in Egypt as well as scores of affiliates operating across America and Europe, according to the bill.

The bill currently has seven cosponsors: Peter Roskam (R., Ill.), Trent Franks (R., Ariz.), Cynthia Lummis (R., Wyo.), Kevin Brady (R., Texas), Steve Southerland (R., Fla.), Louie Gohmert (R., Texas), and Doug LaMalfa (R., Calif.).

While the United States has designated individuals and certain affiliates of the Brotherhood in the past, this is the first time that Congress has moved to sanction the organization as a whole, including all of its member organizations.

The 19-page bill seeks to build a case against the group as one of the leading sponsors of terrorism and argues that the Brotherhood has long been a key player in orchestrating attacks across the globe via its proxies.

The legislation comes as Egyptian authorities continue to crack down on Muslim Brotherhood-backers that have wreaked havoc on Christians and other minorities since the downfall of former President Mohammed Morsi.

The bill would direct the U.S. government to level all “available sanctions” to any person in the United States “who knowingly provides material support or resources to the Muslim Brotherhood or its affiliates, associated groups, or agents.”

It also moves to block anyone affiliated with the Brotherhood from receiving a U.S. visa, which could complicate the White House’s diplomacy efforts on multiple fronts.

A senior member of the Brotherhood was hosted at the White House in February, and other representatives of the group have also gained entrance to the United States, though it remains unclear just how many due to limited documentation.

Additionally, the bill would force a complete shutdown of any Brotherhood affiliates located in the United States and permit the removal of “any alien who is a member or representative” of the group.

Much of the legislation focuses on building a case against the Brotherhood and detailing its many terrorist links.

While the organization remains headquartered in Egypt, where it has faced a violent crackdown from Egyptian authorities, the Brotherhood operates across the world.

“The Muslim Brotherhood’s motto remains to this day what it has been for decades: ‘’Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Koran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu-Akbar!’” the bill states, referring to primary documents from Brotherhood leaders.

Virginia: New Muslim Brotherhood Umbrella Group Holds Inaugural Banquet

This is the same Newly Formed Muslim (Brotherhood) Coalition that Seeks Greater Clout in U.S. Elections.

Participating organizations include high-profile groups that have been dogged by controversy, such as the Muslim American Society (MAS), founded by Muslim Brotherhood members, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which was named by the Justice Department in 2007 as “unindicted co-conspirators” in its case against the Holy Land Foundation in Texas, subsequently found guilty of raising money for Hamas.

The latest via the Brotherhood’s U.S. newspaper, New Umbrella Group Holds Inaugural Banquet.

The United States Council of Muslim Organization (USCMO) held its inaugural banquet at the Hilton In Crystal City, VA on June 10, 2014. The founding organizations had announced the formation of the umbrella council in March 2014; the banquet was the official introduction for the Muslim community to a platform that promises to open effective communication between Muslim organizations in America and build a national vision.

About 250 guests of the member organizations, leaders and imams of masajid, elected and government officials, dignitaries, civic and interfaith partners attended the banquet. Amongst them were Congressman Andre Carson, Congressman Keith Ellison, and Judge Hassan El Amin who also spoke on stage.

Other speakers included Dr. Osama Abu-Irshaid, Nihad Awad, Naeem Baig, Mazen Mokhtar, Khalil Meek, Imam Delawar Hussein, Dr Lynne Muhammad and W.D. Mohammed II.

It was a who’s who of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. Search the archives to read details on any of these nefarious individuals or groups.

The Mosque Cares and the Nation’s Mosque were well represented at the banquet.

The keynote address was given by Dr Ihsan Bagby, of the University of Kentucky, who took the audience on a short sojourn through the history of American Muslims starting from the early Africans who were forcibly brought by slave traders to early immigrants to the present. He traced the history of other umbrella organizations that had formed and pointed out the reasons of their demise, urging the council to learn from their mistakes.

Imam Omar Suleiman represented the younger generation of leaders and spoke about what diversity and race relations means to his generation. He expressed great hope for the growth of the council.

The latest organizations to join the council are the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California, United Muslim Relief, VA and the Islamic Center of Wheaton, IL.

Membership application forms for non-profot organizations are now available on the USCMO website. The dues for voting member annual dues are $3,500 and associate member annual dues are $1,000.

U.S. dollars flow to fund jihad

Flow through Muslims living in the U.S. via U.S. dollars flow to fund jihad.

Some of Africa’s most notorious jihad groups, such as Boko Haram and al-Shabaab, are benefiting from an elaborate, international funding network, including large sums of money flowing from the United States.

MoneyJihad.com founder, Terror Finance Blog analyst and writer A. D. Kendall says Somalis residing in the United States, for example, are a major source of al-Shabaab’s financing.

“First and foremost, the Somalis contribute through remittances and hawala. Somalis wire money home, which is often processed by Dahabshiil, a business that routinely pays off al-Shabaab,” Kendall told WND. “Dahabshiil’s involvement in financing terrorism is the reason why Barclays attempted to end its business relationship with Dahabshiil.”

Barclay’s moved to shut down its connections with Dahabshiil because of numerous reports of money transfers from Somalis in the U.S., Canada and Europe to al-Shabaab through the Dubai-based company.

Kendall adds that American Somalis also support jihad through direct fundraising.

“There’s international zakat for the mujahideen,” Kendall said. “Somali activists like Amina Farah Ali in Minnesota or Basaaly Moalin in California raise money from their communities for jihad and send it to al-Shabaab.”

Amina Farah Ali, in fact, was convicted in federal court for funneling money to al-Shabaab.

Moalin was also sentenced to 18 years in prison for “providing material support to al-Shabaab.”

Kendall further points to Somali media that openly report direct contributions from American Somalis to al-Shabaab.

“Western readers should be aware of separate, independent reports by the Somali diaspora news media that Dahabshiil finances terrorism. According to reports by Waagacusub, Kalshaale and Suna Times, Dahabshiil pays one-half million dollars twice a year to al-Shabaab,” Kendall said.

One such report was posted this week in Waagacusub.

“Sometimes these fundraisers expressly mention jihad to donors, sometimes they don’t, and often they don’t have to mention it, because it’s commonly understood that the purposes aren’t truly charitable,” Kendall said.

Dave Gaubatz, a former Air Force intelligence officer, Family Security Matters contributing editor and co-author of “Muslim Mafia”, says a large amount of the money flowing to Africa’s jihadist groups originates in the U.S., some from legally incorporated businesses.

“There are many companies operated by people supportive of the jihad groups,” Gaubatz told WND. “One is the gas station and convenience store. The real money, however, does not come from sales at their store. They buy truck loads of tobacco products from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. The taxes on tobacco are so low in these states. They then transport (and sell the cigarettes) in states with very high taxes on tobacco, like Michigan and New York.

“The money is clean because they own a legitimate store,” he continued. “The profits in turn go to jihad-supporting groups to distribute and also directly to jihad groups operating in America.”

When asked if some of the money raised through these operations goes to Boko Haram, al-Shabaab or other groups operating in sub-Saharan Africa, Gaubatz answered, “Yes it does.”

Kendall confirms Gaubatz’s allegation of cigarette re-sales: “Hezbollah launders money through West Africa. It’s not just drug money from Latin America, but from fraudulent activities in North America, such as used car dealer schemes and cigarette-smuggling rings.”

Both men’s comments are confirmed by the story of Bassam Kiriaki, a Pawtucket, Rhode Island, accountant who pleaded guilty this year of bringing $1.2 million of cigarettes to Rhode Island from Virginia.

“Kiriaki admitted to the court that he made false representations to law enforcement and created a false tax document in order to conceal the conspiracy,” The Providence Journal reported. “According to court records, on March 30 the Virginia State Police stopped an alleged co-conspirator and seized $30,000 from his vehicle.

“After the stop and seizure, the FBI intercepted calls made by Kiriaki during which he agreed to call Virginia State Police and to tell them that the money was to buy merchandise for a new store in Virginia, Bad Boys Tobacco Stop, Inc.,” the Journal report said.

Kiriaki’s conviction is the latest in a series of arrests for illegal cigarette trafficking.

Yahoo News reported in March of this year 56 percent of the cigarettes sold in New York City were brought illegally from out of state sources.

It’s reported that 15 Palestinians and a South Carolina imam were arrested for participating in the New York City cigarette-smuggling operation. In one case, the Palestinian ringleader was also charged with a plot to kill the witnesses in one of the operations.
