Virginia: Convicted South Park terror wannabe wanted baby to be jihadi too

We knew this Muslim rat had used his infant son as a human shield on his way to wage jihad. But after he was convicted and his wife deported, they still wanted to raise the poor baby to be a jihadi. The sanity of the judge and the grandparents have so far prevailed.

via Court hears appeal in terror-related custody dispute

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A lawyer for a radical Muslim convert imprisoned for supporting terrorism urged a federal appeals court Thursday to revive the man’s parental rights lawsuit, which a judge had dismissed as frivolous.

Jason LaFond told a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that Zachary Chesser’s complaint against his mother and FBI agents, while lengthy and complicated, was not fanciful and was supported by numerous documents.

The judge who dismissed the lawsuit “didn’t say whether it was factually or legally frivolous, but it was neither,” LaFond said.

Court papers show that Chesser attempted to join the al-Shabab terrorist group in Somalia, taking his baby with him to the airport in an attempt to look less suspicious.

It didn’t work. Chesser, who had attracted law enforcement attention after posting threats against the creators of “South Park” for cartoons he felt insulted the prophet Muhammad, was arrested and pleaded guilty in 2010 to attempting to support terrorist groups and threatening violence online. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

His wife – Proscovia Nzabanita, the daughter of a Ugandan diplomat – was forced to leave the U.S. for lying to investigators about her husband’s activities.

Chesser’s mother, Barbara Chesser, won custody of the couple’s baby and is raising him with her partner. The young couple “opposed placing the young boy with his grandparents, who did not share Chesser and his wife’s conservative Islamic beliefs,” LaFond wrote in his client’s appeal.

Keep in mind this is the same Muslim dog who Encourages Parents to Teach Children about Jihad.

The lawsuit says FBI agents monitoring his prison conversations tipped off Barbara Chesser, a senior lawyer in the Office of the Attorney General in the District of Columbia, that the couple was making plans with a friend to take the boy to Jordan to be raised by Nzabanita. Soon after, a judge awarded custody of the boy to Barbara Chesser.

Interesting, his mother is a a senior lawyer in the Office of the Attorney General in the District of Columbia.

Zachary Chesser’s lawsuit seeks monetary damages, not custody. He says his privacy was invaded when FBI agents disclosed his plans to his mother.

Privacy? In taxpayer-funded prison?

U.S. Justice Department attorney Lowell Sturgill urged the appeals court to uphold U.S. District Judge Liam O’Grady’s decision, although he conceded that the judge should be required to explain his reasoning on the privacy issue.

The court typically rules several weeks after hearing arguments.

Nevada: Vegas neighbors lose fight against Islamic cemetery near residential communities

via Neighbors lose fight against proposed Islamic cemetery – www.ktnv.com.

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) — Neighbors have lost their fight against a proposed Islamic cemetery not far from McCarran International Airport.

On Wednesday, Clark County commissioners allowed plans for the project to move forward, despite widespread opposition from people who live nearby.

The empty plot near Warm Springs and Bermuda roads is partially surrounded by homes, one of the big reasons why neighbors say the space should not become an Islamic funeral home and cemetery.

“The main concern has always been that a cemetery doesn’t fit in our neighborhood,” said one resident.

Plans call for up to 1,200 plots to serve the area’s Muslim community. Signs are posted throughout the neighborhood opposing the project.

“I have no prejudice against any religion or any denomination but I just don’t feel this residential area is a proper location,” said neighbor Tim O’Reilly.

The site is not far from an Islamic school and mosque. The county’s planning commission already approved the project but neighbors lined up to appeal the decision. They expressed concerns about property values, contaminated water and possible flooding.

“It would be appalling and gruesome to have any bodies washed away and this would be devastating to their families,” said neighbor Michelle Almassy.

Commissioners unanimously denied the appeal, allowing the project to move forward.

“I don’t have a justifiable reason to say no, other than the fact that obviously a lot of neighbors would prefer it be put in a different and separate area,” said commissioner Steve Sisolak.

Sisolak said the land’s current zoning allows for a cemetery.

The applicant said Muslims have few burial options in the valley that meet the needs of their faith.

“I will build them a cemetery that will improve the value of houses and land in that neighborhood,” said Dr. Osama Haikal.

Dr. Haikal said he’ll agree to conditions to address traffic and parking. He said a lack of understanding is fueling neighbors’ fears, “I have done everything imaginable to make sure that none of them will hurt.”

Commissioners approved the plans with roughly two dozen conditions. Organizers hope to have the project completed in about a year.

According to Dr Aslam Abdullah, director of the Islamic Society of Nevada, the opposition by the residents was a result of a theological problem. “We don’t have a place. We need a place. But we don’t want a place at the expense of our neighbors,” Abdullah said.

Abdullah also said that an earlier effort by a different group to build a Muslim cemetery in the northeast valley in 2012 ended with a fire at the construction site, which he believes was intentionally set and considers it as a hate crime since the cause of the fire was never determined.


We know that more often than not such purported “hate crimes” are committed by Muslims.

While it might be zoned for a cemetery, it’s a very residential area.

A US Army National Guard solider and his cousin have been arrested for attempting to join ISIS and planning a ‘Charlie Hebdo’ style terrorist attack on home soil.

Specialist Hasan Edmonds, 22, a U.S. citizen and member of the Illinois National Guard, was arrested on Wednesday at Chicago Midway International Airport by members of the Chicago FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) while trying to fly to Cairo, Egypt, the Department of Justice said in a statement.

His cousin, Jonas Edmonds, 29, who is also a U.S. citizen, was arrested without incident at his home in Aurora, Illinois, on the same day.

The pair have posed for pictures together on Facebook, while Hasan has uploaded images of his tattoos.

The statement added: ‘Both defendants were charged in a criminal complaint filed yesterday in U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Illinois with one count of conspiring to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization.’

Jonas

In late 2014, Hasan came to the attention of the FBI. The investigation subsequently revealed that he and Jonas had allegedly devised a plan for Hasan to wage violence on behalf of ISIL.

Hasan, a current member of the Illinois Army National Guard, planned to use his military training to fight.

As part of their plans, Hasan booked an airline ticket to travel on Wednesday from Chicago and arrive in Cairo on Thursday, with layovers in Detroit and Amsterdam.

According to the criminal complaint, both defendants also planned for Jonas to carry out an act of terrorism in the United States after Hasan had left.

The pair allegedly met with an FBI undercover employee and presented a plan to carry out an armed attack against a U.S. military facility in northern Illinois, an installation where Hasan had been training.

The agent had reached out to Hasan and added him on Facebook.

Jonas asked the FBI undercover employee to assist in the attack and explained that they would use Hasan’s uniforms and the information he supplied about how to access the installation and target officers for attack.

According to the documents he saw a body count of between 100 and 150. Hasan said it would be closer to 120.

The FBI complaint added that the pair said: ‘Honestly we would love to do something like the brothers in Paris did’ – referring to the attack on the headquarters of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.

If convicted, they face a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Jonas already was convicted of conspiracy to commit armed robbery and served five years in a Georgia prison between 2005 and 2010.

Hasan Edmonds allegedly wrote “I am already in the american kafir army (back when I was still in this dunyah and not muslim) and now I wish only to serve in the army of Allah alongside my true brothers.” Kafir means infidel and dunyah means “of this world,” according to the feds.

“I joined the united states army national guard about 3 years ago. I still currently have 3 years left that I have no intention what so ever of fulfilling.”

In another Facebook chat he wrote, “I am no expert with our weapons but I can get the job done.”

“I pray to just one time step foot in the land ruled by the Law of the Quran but I am content to fight and die here in the cause of Allah whenever the target is set and the order is given. InshaAllah my brothers will march with me as well.”

The feds say Hasan Edmonds wrote that his cousin, who has served time in a Georgia prison, would “put the fear of Allah in their hearts and minds right here in the homeland.”

“I can own handguns shotguns and rifles but no automatic weapons or heavy machine guns,” he allegedly wrote in another online chat. “We have plenty people here who have them and hide them so we will do the same.”

“It would be hard to pull off a lager scale attack on the government but police stations and courts are pretty easy and it’s been done before by kufar sometimes just one person.”

He allegedly hoped that the attack in Illinois would have a similar effect to the attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris earlier this year. “Honestly we would love to do something like the brother in Paris did,” he wrote in one message, the feds say.

And on Tuesday, both cousins met with the undercover agent and traveled to Hasan Edmonds’ National Guard base. “When they arrived, the three discussed, among other things, where soldiers at the installation trained,” the complaint states.

“Also during this meeting, Hasan Edmonds described the inside of the installation and which rooms they should avoid during the attack. Hasan Edmonds also entered the installation and retrieved a military training schedule, which he then gave to Jonas Edmonds.”

Lt. Col. Brad Leighton, the public affairs director of the Illinois National Guard, said that Hasan Edmonds reported to the guard’s Joliet base one weekend a month and that he did two weeks of active-duty training, typically in the summer.

He enlisted in August 2011 and had never deployed, but worked as a supply specialist that was part of a logistics unit that provides supplies and other services to the 33rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, Leighton said. He added that Edmonds had last reported for duty earlier this month, but said that the guard’s focus was on “ensuring the safety of our soldiers, airmen and their families.”

Top U.S. Muslim Cleric Dr. Salah Soltan Sentenced to Death in Egypt

via Top U.S. Islamic Cleric Dr. Salah Soltan Sentenced to Death in Egypt | PJ Tatler.

by Patrick Poole

A man once hailed as “one of the most respected Islamic scholars in the country” was sentenced to death today in an Egyptian court after being found guilty on charges of inciting murder.

Dr. Salah Soltan, a senior member of the international Muslim Brotherhood, lived and worked in the U.S. for more than a decade.

 He is still listed as a member of the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) on their organizational brochure.

Al-Ahram reports:

A Cairo criminal court sentenced Mohamed Badie, the Muslim Brotherhood’s supreme guide, and 13 other leading members of the group to death on Monday for inciting murder in the now infamous case known in the media as “Rabaa control room.”

The 14 convicted include Muslim Brotherhood spokesperson Mahmoud Ghozlan, former Kafr El-Sheikh governor Saad El-Hossainy and preacher Salah Sultan. The court has also set the date of 11 April to announce its verdict concerning other defendants in the case.

The court has referred the death sentences to Egypt’s Grand Mufti for revision. The referral of the sentences to the Mufti is the first step in the legal process required to enact a death sentence. The Mufti’s decision is not binding. However, following his decision the court will issue a final verdict. Once a final verdict is issued, defendants can appeal.

Badie and another 13 Brotherhood figures are convicted of setting up an operation after the violent dispersal of the Rabaa Al-Adaweya protest camp in mid-August in 2013 to direct the movements of Brotherhood supporters across the country as part of plans to defy the state and spread chaos, as well as plot attacks on police stations, private property and churches.

Soltan was arrested in September 2013 as he tried to flee to Sudan, and was charged with incitement to kill and attempted murder.

His son Mohamed, who has become a cause celebre for the American media and U.S. Islamic organizations, was also convicted in the current case and will be sentenced on April 11:

The story of Salah and Mohamed Soltan will not be unfamiliar to regular PJ Media readers.

Just last week, Mohamed Soltan was trying to paint himself in court as an innocent spectator swept up in the aftermath of deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi’s overthrow. I noted here that multiple Western media reports at the time identified Mohamed as one of the top leaders organizing the violent Muslim Brotherhood protests in Cairo following Morsi’s removal from office.

Salah Soltan has also been the subject of several of my reports here at PJ Media going back to January 2009 when he appeared on Al-Nas TV threatening America with death and destruction for its support of Israel.

At the same time the elder Soltan was threatening America on Middle East TV, his son Mohamed was seen leading anti-Jewish genocidal chants in front of the Ohio Statehouse…


 

Read it all. Then reflect back on yesterday’s post, Mohammed Soltan was former President of the Muslim Students Association.

Military defies Obama, charges Bergdahl with desertion

via ‘Was it worth it? Absolutely': Obama administration official defends Bergdahl trade despite charges

Bergdahl was accused of walking away from his post and putting his fellow soldiers in danger. The trade of hardened Taliban fighters for his freedom raised deep concerns on Capitol Hill that the administration struck an unbalanced and possibly illegal deal.

With the newly announced charges, Bergdahl could also face a dishonorable discharge, reduction in rank and forfeiture of all his pay if convicted. He is not in pretial confinement at Fort Sam Houston, a spokesman for U.S. Army Forces Command said.

The announcement of the charges marks a sharp turnaround for the administration’s narrative of Bergdahl’s service and release. After the swap last year, National Security Adviser Susan Rice said Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.”

But as Bergdahl faced criticism from fellow servicemembers for his actions, the administration faced heated complaints from Congress over the Taliban trade itself. “This fundamental shift in U.S. policy signals to terrorists around the world a greater incentive to take U.S. hostages,” said former Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., then the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

Wednesday’s announcement only fueled those concerns.

Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., a member of the Armed Services Committee, was asked by reporters Wednesday whether the charges raised doubts about the initial trade of Bergdahl for the Taliban members.

“I would think that it would raise doubts in the mind of the average American if those doubts weren’t raised already,” Wicker said.

“This proves once again that the president’s political motivations for closing Guantanamo Bay are causing him to make reckless decisions and will put more American lives at risk,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said Wednesday in a statement.

Gen. Mark Milley, head of U.S. Army Forces Command at Fort Bragg, has been reviewing the massive case files and had a broad range of legal options, including various degrees of desertion charges. A major consideration was whether military officials would be able to prove that Bergdahl had no intention of returning to his unit.

Bergdahl disappeared from his base in the eastern Afghanistan province of Paktika on June 30, 2009. A private first class at the time, he had three days earlier emailed his parents expressing disillusionment with the war.

Bergdahl left a note in his tent that said he was leaving to start a new life and intended to renounce his citizenship, Fox News reported last year.

For the next five years, Bergdahl is believed to have been held by the Taliban and Pakistan’s infamous Haqqani network. In one of several hostage videos released during his captivity, he said he was captured when he fell behind a patrol, but fellow soldiers, outraged after the trade was made with the Taliban, accused him of deserting. Some asserted that American servicemembers’ lives were put at risk in the hunt for Bergdahl.

Bergdahl was freed on May 31, 2014, after the White House agreed to trade five high-value Taliban operatives held at Guantanamo Bay.

The trade was branded as illegal by lawmakers, who said they weren’t advised beforehand, It was also blasted by critics who said it violated America’s longstanding tradition of not negotiating with terrorists. There were also concerns – which would prove well-founded – that the Taliban members would return to the fight against the West.

Of the five — Mohammad Fazl, the former Taliban army chief of staff; Khairullah Khairkhwa, a Taliban intelligence official; Abdul Haq Wasiq, a former Taliban government official; and Norullah Noori and Mohammad Nabi Omari — at least three have attempted to reconnect with their old comrades, a source told Fox News.

Bergdhal was promoted to sergeant while in captivity, and had accrued more than $200,000 in back pay by the time he was freed.

The Obama administration’s incoming communications director said Wednesday the decision to trade Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl for five Taliban leaders last year was the right move, hours after he was charged with desertion.

“Was it worth it? Absolutely,” Jen Psaki told Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File.” “We have a commitment to our men and women serving in the military, defending our national security every day, that we’re going to do everything to bring them home if we can, and that’s what we did in this case.”


A deserter who joined the enemy is not one of our men. These are:

Nigeria: Muslims abduct 500 women and children, using as human shields

“…to create a caliphate in northern Nigeria.”

via Boko Haram extremists kidnap hundreds, including children, as human shields.

ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) — Hundreds of civilians, including many children, have been kidnapped and are being used as human shields by Boko Haram extremists, a top Nigerian official confirmed Wednesday.

Several hundred people were abducted by the Islamic militants as they retreated earlier this month from Damasak in northeastern Nigeria, Mike Omeri, the Nigerian spokesman for the fight against Boko Haram, told The Associated Press Wednesday. He said he could not specify how many were kidnapped but local reports say as many as 500 people were taken.

The Islamic rebels went to Damasak’s primary schools and rounded up students and teachers and then retreated, said Omeri.

via Nigeria: Hundreds of women and children kidnapped, locals say | euronews, world news.

In Damasak, Souleymane Ali told Reuters: “They took 506 young women and children. They killed about 50 of them before leaving.”Boko Haram, which also abducted 300 schoolgirls in the region last April, wants to create a caliphate in northern Nigeria.

And: Boko Haram just took 500 ‘young women and children’

Using children to carry and detonate explosives is not a new tactic for Boko Haram, but it is an intensification,” Elizabeth Donnelly, assistant head of Chatham House’s Africa program in London, told NBC. “Boko Haram has been abducting and conscripting children and young men and women for a long period for various purposes. They will be seen by the movement as expendable resources.”

Last week, Agence France-Presse and other news organizations reported that “dozens of Nigerian women who were forced to marry Boko Haram fighters were slaughtered by their ‘husbands’ before a battle with troops” in the northeast town of Bama. Witnesses told AFP  that “they killed the women to prevent them from subsequently marrying soldiers or other so-called non-believers. … ‘The terrorists said they will not allow their wives to be married to infidels,’ said Sharifatu Bakura, 39, a mother of three.”

No one knows what will happen to the 500 children said on Tuesday to be taken by Boko Haram. But the rationale behind their capture seems all but certain to local experts. “The very young ones, they will give to the madrassas,” Borno state Senator Maina Maaji Lawan told the BBC,” referring to Islamic religious schools. “And the male ones between 16 and 25, they conscript them and they indoctrinate them as supply channels for their horrible missions.”

And:

It is believed the mass kidnapping happened on March 16 but the details are only coming through now.

via Newsweek:

 According to the Council on Foreign Relations, Boko Haram killed over 10,000 people in 2014, the deadliest year in their six-year insurgency against Nigerian authorities in hope of creating an Islamic caliphate. They have already reportedly slain more than 2,000 people in the first months of 2015 following a series of mass killings in the town of Baga, in the state of Borno.


A reader reminds that in 2014, Kerry and Clinton warned Nigeria for attacking the Muslim terrorists. And Obama Threatened Nigeria with Sanctions in 2013 for Fighting Boko Haram.
