Why Did Huma Abedin Bring Desecration of Koran in Michigan to Sec of State Clinton’s Attention?

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was understandably kept abreast of all manner of news from all over the world during her tenure as Secretary of State.

But buried amidst the thousands of emails recently released by the State Department is one news report of particular interest sent from top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Here is Abedin’s note:

This email begs the question: Why did Huma Abedin feel the need to bring the desecration of a Koran in East Lansing, MI to the attention of the Secretary of State?

Did Abedin feel that Clinton might be concerned about the news “inciting” attacks in America or abroad?

Might she have felt that such a story could be leveraged politically?

Was it just something Abedin as a Muslim found personally reprehensible, that she felt her confidant ought to be made aware of?

Whatever the reason that Huma Abedin felt the need to give a heads-up to Hillary Clinton on this particular story, this and the hundreds if not thousands of emails between them remind us that though the press may ignore it, a Muslim Brotherhood-tied aide has been closer to Mrs. Clinton than perhaps anyone else for many years, including critical ones at Foggy Bottom.


Note the Koran burning was reported by another Muslim Brotherhood entity, the terror-named Hamas front group CAIR and it took place in Lansing, Michigan – where the mayor celebrates the month of jihad – Ramadan – on 9/11.

Man who shot Virginia journalists identified with 9/11 attacks

The gunman who killed two Virginia television journalists on air carried out a well-planned assault and identified with mass murderers and the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, authorities said on Friday.

The shooter, Vester Flanagan, gave no sign of his destination or next move when he fled after gunning down the journalists from Roanoke station WDBJ7 on Wednesday, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

“It is evident that Wednesday morning’s attack was well-planned and premeditated” and Flanagan apparently acted alone, the statement on the shooting investigation said.

Flanagan, a former station employee, fired 17 rounds from a .40 caliber Glock pistol when he attacked reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward as they were conducting a live interview at Smith Mountain Lake in southwest Virginia, the statement said.

Flanagan shot himself during a police chase in northern Virginia and died. The woman who was being interviewed was wounded and hospitalized.

Evidence and his writings show that Flanagan “closely identified with individuals who have committed domestic acts of violence and mass murder, as well as the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S.,” said the statement. Almost 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks.


Could that be why ABC Is Hiding Details of (racist, black & gay) Killer Vester Flanagan’s Manifesto?

Maine: Slain Christian’s head bashed by Muslim ‘refugees’

An update on the case that a judge kept from the public, via: Slain Christian’s head allegedly bashed by Muslim ‘refugees’

A judge on Monday unsealed the court documents of a grisly murder of a Christian man, allegedly at the hands of three Muslim immigrants in Portland, Maine.

In those documents, which had been sealed since the three men were charged Aug. 11, police said they found the brutally beaten body of Freddy Akoa lying on the living-room floor in his apartment. He was the victim of a savage attack that took place over several hours.

According to the autopsy report, he had cuts and bruises all over his body, with the fatal blows coming to his head.

Akoa, who had listed himself as a health-care professional on his LinkedIn page, had 22 rib fractures and a lacerated liver.

Akoa’s blood-splattered Bible was found lying next to his head.

The apartment was in disarray, with empty beer cans and trash strewn about, as though a party had come to an abrupt end at the onset of a physical altercation.

Akoa, 49, apparently knew his assailants, but police have not commented on the nature of their relationship.

He had been beaten and kicked in the head, and bashed in the head with a piece of furniture in an assault that continued relentlessly for hours, police said in the arrest affidavit.

But they were silent on what touched off the vicious attack.

Could they have been drinking and then gotten into an argument over religion? Police wouldn’t say if the Bible was found open or closed, but its presence so close to the body leaves one to wonder.

A local detective refused to fill in any of the many blank holes in the story of Freddy Akoa’s death.

“I can’t go into any of the details,” Detective Rich Vogel of the Portland Police Department told WND. “I’m just not at liberty to give out any information about a case that’s subject to an ongoing investigation. Eventually the whole story will come out. It always does.”

Of the three Muslim assailants, at least two have common Somali names – Mohamud Mohamed, 36, and Osman Sheikh, 31. The third suspect is Abil Teshome, 23.

There were several other people in the apartment when the altercation broke out, Vogel told WND. But how many of them understood what was being said is in question, since the arrest affidavit states that the words being exchanged between Akoa and his assailants were not in English.

Vogel also said he did not know the immigration status of the suspects.

The three Portland assailants entered Akoa’s apartment about 4:40 p.m. on Aug. 9 and left about 5:30 a.m. on Aug. 10, according to surveillance video on the apartment building.

These details were made public for the first time Monday when a judge at the Cumberland County Courthouse unsealed an affidavit filed by Portland police Detective Christopher Giesecke to obtain an arrest warrant for three men accused in the killing, the Portland Press Herald reported.

The case documents had been sealed at a prosecutor’s request for one week after three accused killers appeared in court, each on a charge of murder by depraved indifference.

The arrest warrant affidavit explains how police first learned of Akoa’s death on Aug. 11, and how clues left in the apartment and video surveillance camera recordings quickly led detectives to interview a witness and take the three suspects into custody, the Press Herald reported.

Akoa’s mother, Jeannie Mendomo, became concerned after she couldn’t reach her son by phone and no one answered the door at his apartment. She called the building’s management company to check on him. Two of the company’s representatives used a key to go in the apartment after noon on Aug. 11 and found him dead on the floor with a swollen and bloodied face, Giesecke wrote in the affidavit.

Beneath Akoa’s body police found a document with Mohamed’s name on it.

Detectives found a purse in the apartment that lead them to a woman, Jennifer Wilson, who said she was there the night Akoa was beaten, Giesecke stated in court documents.

That afternoon, they found Wilson at the Preble Street Resource Center in Portland, and before they could ask her a single question, she asked them, “How is Freddy?” Giesecke wrote.

Wilson told police that three other men were present in the apartment and got into a fight with Akoa.

Wilson told police she and Akoa and the three men had all walked together to Akoa’s apartment on Aug. 9 after buying beer at a nearby store, according to the Press Herald report. She told them they had been drinking for only about 10 minutes before an argument broke out in a language that Wilson did not understand, according to the arrest affidavit.

Akoa was also an immigrant from Africa but not from a Muslim-dominated country. Comments left on his and his sister’s Facebook page after the attack indicate they were a Christian family.

Police later found Teshome, Mohamed and Sheikh in Deering Oaks park on the morning of Aug. 13 and arrested Teshome on a charge of criminal trespassing.

Teshome allegedly told Detective Richard Vogel in an interview at the Portland police station after his arrest that he had become angry at Akoa’s apartment and that he, Mohamed and Sheikh all took turns assaulting him. Again, no reason for the anger was given by Giesecke in the documents.

“Teshome said he lost control of himself and started hitting Akoa several times in the head. Teshome admitted to punching and kicking Akoa multiple times and knocking him to the ground. Teshome also stated that he also struck Akoa with his hands and feet while Akoa was lying on the ground,” Giesecke wrote.

Police say Teshome confessed that he used a board from a makeshift coffee table to beat Akoa over the head and to strike his foot.

“(Teshome) said that he and Sheikh left Akoa’s apartment around the same time and that he believed Akoa was alive when he left,” Giesecke wrote.

Video surveillance footage from the apartment building shows Wilson and Mohamed leaving the building at 5:38 a.m. on Aug. 10, but Teshome and Sheikh cannot be seen in the footage, the affidavit states.

Teshome, Mohamed and Sheikh are being held without bail at the Cumberland County Jail.

Arizona: Muslim Transgender Woman Kicked Out of Mosque

Which minority victim takes precedence on the loony, leftist, pc totem pole? Will the media take the mosque, it’s leaders and the Muslim community to task or give them a free ride? via Muslim Transgender Woman Kicked Out of Mosque | Phoenix New Times h/t TROP

Leaders of a Tempe mosque have decided that if congregant Sumayyah Dawud wants to continue attending prayers and other community functions at the Islamic Community Center, she must either dress and pray as a man or provide medical documentation that she is anatomically female.

Though Dawud was born male, she has been legally female since 2011 — her Arizona driver’s license and U.S. passport list her as such. She converted to Islam in 2013 and, until recently, says no one has raised any questions about her identity.

But earlier this summer, a handful of her fellow community members went to the ICC board of directors with concerns that she was not actually female and said having her pray with them in the women’s section made them uncomfortable.

One of the leaders “told me I was not allowed to use the women’s areas because ‘I had male biology,’” Dawud says. “I asked where he got that from, and he told me that I was the one who said that at the meeting with [Fayad] previously. I explained that I never said such a thing. He also said I had agreed from the prior meeting to stay out of the women’s section, which was also untrue.”

Then the imam “mentioned the medical document and stated he had read that and that the entire board had read it as well.”

Dawud says Fayad admitted to sharing the document without her consent, and admitted to discussing details of their supposedly private meeting.

“He said he had to show and share the information because the ‘imam needed a fatwa’”— a legal opinion about Islamic law. “I was then accused of deliberately deceiving the board [with the medical document] and of making [Fayad] ‘make a fool out of himself in front of the board,’” she adds.

She says Fayad told her that he also showed the document to other doctors to get their opinion on the matter and that since “those doctors did not like how the document was worded” – the document spoke of her gender, not necessarily her biological sex — she would need to produce supplementary documentation that proved she was female.

“They stated I would no longer be allowed to return to the property unless I either provide a document they would accept, at which point I would be admitted to the women’s areas as before or otherwise I would have to come dressed in men’s clothes, pray in the men’s area, and use the men’s restroom,” Dawud says.

“When I argued over this, [Fayad] stated he would call the police and have a restraining order placed on me.”

She was also notified of the ICC’s official transgender policy, which stated that “those with male biology will be asked to leave female spaces.” The ICC had posted the full policy on social media a few days earlier, but took it down the following morning after it prompted a heated debate.

As for Dawud, she’s not planning on attending Friday prayer today for fear of being kicked out, arrested, or otherwise publicly humiliated, but she doesn’t plan on dropping the matter and receding into the shadows…


A white male who has converted not only to being a female, but a fully-garbed Muslim woman – or so he thinks.

Mississippi: Muslim immigrant arrested after assaulting cop, making bomb threats

Source: Assault charges upgraded against Iranian accused of making terror threats | Hancock County | The Sun Herald

HANCOCK COUNTY — Sheriff’s investigators Monday upgraded the charges against a man accused of assaulting two deputies Sunday on Interstate 10 and claiming he had a bomb in his vehicle.

Chief Deputy Don Bass said Safa Alidoust faces two counts of aggravated assault against a law enforcement officer, along with a count of false reporting of an explosive device associated with terroristic threats.

The aggravated assault charges were upgraded from simple assault, which Alidoust was initially charged with Sunday. He remained in the Hancock County jail with no bond set as of Monday, though Bass said a bond hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred about 3:30 a.m. on I-10 westbound near the Louisiana state line after dispatchers received a call of a naked man on the side of road.

The responding deputy, whom authorities have not yet identified, found a shirtless man standing beside a vehicle. When the deputy exited his squad car, Alidoust charged at the deputy, yelling in what the deputy believed to be Arabic, Bass said.

He said Alidoust tackled the deputy to the ground, injuring the deputy’s head and knocking loose his radio, leaving him unable to call for assistance.

When dispatchers could not contact the deputy, they sent an additional unit to the scene, and both officers were able to subdue and detain the suspect.

While detained, the man allegedly told deputies he had a bomb in his vehicle.

The deputies then contacted Mississippi Highway Patrol, Hancock County Emergency Management Agency, Louisiana State Police and the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office to shut down the interstate and secure a perimeter of several miles. The Biloxi Police Department’s bomb squad also responded, bringing bomb-sniffing dogs and X-ray equipment to the scene, though no explosives were found.

EMT units transported Alidoust and the deputy to Hancock Medical Center, where both were treated for injuries and released. The suspect was then transported to the Hancock County jail.

Bass said Alidoust is from Iran and an employee at a petroleum engineering company in Lafayette.

Taxpayer Funds Used to Pay a Premium for Halal Food in U.S. Schools

Taxation for Islamization, via Federal Government Subsidizes Halal Food in Public Schools

In recent years, three American public school districts have provided taxpayer-supported lunches meeting Muslim students’ dietary standards. They have not similarly provided lunches satisfying any other students’ religious standards. The halal foods purchased with public funds are costlier than comparable non-halal foods.

This is problematic under the U.S. Constitution’s Establishment [1] and Equal Protection [2] Clauses. Even if a school district endeavors to provide all students with food satisfying each one’s religious requirements, it would arguably entangle the government in religious observance and so violate the separation of “church” and state. If a school district goes out of its way to provide food satisfying the religious requirements of only some [3] students, but not others, it risks illegally giving them unequal advantages and elevating [4] their religion over others. This is especially so given that the school food is paid for at least partly with public funds [5], although the schools have been reluctant to reveal how much tax money is involved.

The Halal Programs

Public schools in Dearborn [6], Michigan, first began offering halal lunches in 2001 [7]. That winter, the school district invited “proposals [8] from halal food distributors to provide food at several of its 28 public schools,” and began a pilot program [9]. Presently, according to David Mustonen, director of community and public relations for Dearborn Public Schools: “All schools have a halal option [10] five days a week.”

Dearborn Heights’ Crestwood School District started a halal food pilot program in 2013-14 [11]. Last year, Crawford High School in San Diego operated a pilot program [12] offering a halal lunch option twice a week.

Legislators in both New York City and New York state have proposed mandating public schools [9] to serve halal [13] food.  In February 2014, New York City Councilman Rafael Espinal [7] introduced a resolution [14] requiring New York City schools “to provide a halal lunch menu option.” Three [15] separate [16] bills [17] have been introduced in the New York State Assembly during the current (2015-16) term that would require public schools in big cities to offer halal lunch options. One [15] of them requires that the food be provided to Muslim students “at no cost.”

Media stories about lobbying efforts to serve halal food in New York City and San Diego public schools largely framed the issue as one of poor Muslim children going hungry because government-funded public schools failed to provide food satisfying their religious requirements (e.g., for San Diego: here [18], here [19], and here [12]; for New York City: here [13] and here [7]).

The articles presumed parents could not or would not provide lunches, or argued that unheated packaged lunches were insufficient to enable children to learn effectively. Adds David Loy, legal director of the ACLU Foundation of San Diego & Imperial Counties, “The [San Diego] school district has a valid secular purpose of promoting equal educational opportunity by ensuring that low-income students eat lunch and therefore learn more effectively.”  New York City’s proposed legislation [14] shares these assumptions.

The coverage has also focused on meat. Articles typically presume that supplying halal meals equates to serving meat meals, although one story about Dearborn Heights [20] indicated the school district was offering more vegetarian options in addition to meat, and one about San Diego [19] commented that salad dressings are sometimes not halal.

Other Religions Excluded

The Middle East Forum asked Mustonen whether Dearborn makes kosher or other religiously compliant meals available to students. He responded only: “If there were a demand for kosher lunches (hot or cold) the district would consider that as an option.” In other words, no. Neither San Diego nor Crestwood (Dearborn Heights) responded to any questions about whether they provide food satisfying non-Islamic religious requirements. The legislation pending in New York City and state does not require public schools to satisfy religious dietary requirements of non-Muslims. For instance, they are not required to offer kosher meals, despite New York’s historically large Jewish population.

While the Forum cannot conclusively say that no public school lunch programs in the country benefit students of other religions having dietary restrictions, several public school districts that have traditionally had large Jewish populations were contacted for this article. Districts contacted include: New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Cleveland, Chicago, Los Angeles, Scarsdale, New Rochelle, Lawrence School District (Nassau County, New York), Lower Merion (Pennsylvania), Shaker Heights (Ohio), West Bloomfield (Michigan), and School District 68 and Township High School District 113 (Skokie/Highland Park, Illinois).

They uniformly responded that they do not offer kosher lunches. New York City, Baltimore, Lawrence School District, and School District 68 offer a few items, such as juice, marked kosher. Philadelphia and Chicago have eliminated pork products from their menus, and Cleveland has cut back on pork products.

Government Funds Used to Pay a Premium for Halal Food

Beginning with the 2014-15 school year, the federal [21] government pays for free lunches for all students (i.e., free to students, paid for by the federal government) at a school if more than 40% [22] of its students come from low-income homes.

Crawford qualifies for free lunches for all students, according to Loy.

Dearborn declined to provide details about the number and percentage of its students participating in the federal lunch program, but as of 2011, approximately 60% of its students qualified [23] for federal help. A number of Dearborn schools, if not the whole district, likely qualify for lunches free to all students courtesy of the federal government under the new federal policy. In any case, it receives millions [24] of federal dollars each year for free and reduced-price lunches.

Crestwood (Dearborn Heights) also declined to provide information, but data suggest Crestwood also meets the 40% threshold for universal access to free lunches. As of 2009-10 [25], 46% of Crestwood High School’s 1,260 students received subsidized lunches, and as of 2014, 62% [26] of them did.

Halal meat costs more than non-halal meat. Asked about the Dearborn program’s cost, Mustonen responded only, “Any increase in cost is off-set by an increase in revenue.” He provided no details, and the source of the increased revenue is unexplained.

Reportedly, halal meals for the Dearborn program cost the district 20% [6]30% [27] more per meal than equivalent non-halal meals. Significant dollars are involved: the Dearborn school district contracted to pay $228,000 [27] for halal meat. The time period covered by the contract was not provided.

Neither San Diego nor Crestwood (Dearborn Heights) school district responded to inquiries on the respective program’s cost or any other issue.

Before beginning its pilot program, the San Diego school district reportedly [18] spent “$16 million a year on 22 million meals for students, but adding a halal menu could be a considerable extra cost…  the meat is a bit pricey because it is considered hard to come by.” A later story about the San Diego halal program mentioned increased cost only in the context of the food being organic [12], not in the context of it being halal.  It gave no specifics, other than stating organic drumsticks cost “a few extra cents.” Like Mustonen, Gary Petill [12], food services director of San Diego Unified School District, stated that increased participation — paid for by the federal government — covered the increased cost.

Demand for school lunches at Crawford has increased by about 300 [12] meals (it is unclear whether that figure represents the additional number of meals per week, or the number of additional students participating in the twice-weekly halal lunch option), the cost of which is borne by the federal government, not by parents or students.  Not all additional participants are Muslim; the breakdown of Muslim as compared to non-Muslim new participants is not known.

Crestwood (Dearborn Heights) food service director Lori Squire did not respond to an inquiry for this article but has reportedly said a maximum of 20% [11] of students who buy their meals opt for the halal chicken patty option. It is unclear to what extent federal funds subsidize those lunches.

——————–

To sum up, three American school districts are providing Muslim students with food meeting their religious requirements. Dearborn is not doing the same for students of other religions, such as Jews. San Diego and Dearborn Heights ignored questions about how students of other religions are treated.  New York City and state are considering legislation that would require schools to provide halal food but not food meeting any other religious requirements. The halal food costs more than comparable non-religiously prescribed food. It is paid for in part or in whole with millions of dollars in federal funds.

In effect, Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, and San Diego appear to have established Islam as an official religion, whose rituals are endorsed by the government and paid for with public funds. New York City and New York state may join them.

Virginia: Muslim teen who ran ISIS propaganda, recruiting gets 11 years

Source: ISIS supporter Ali Shukri Amin sentenced to 11 years in prison | Daily Mail Online

A Virginia teenager who ran a pro Islamic State Twitter account and encouraged a friend to join the terrorist group has been sentenced to 11 years in prison.Ali Shukri Amin, 17, from Woodbridge stood motionless as the sentence was handed down to him by U.S. District Judge Claude M. Hilton.Members of Amin’s family had packed out the courtroom to hear him sentenced and they too were silent after the jail term was read.

shukri-amin-jihad

His sentence was less than the 15-year term that prosecutors had pushed for because the judge took his age into consideration.

But prosecutors argued that it was important to send him to prison to show that the U.S. government is committed to punishing pro ISIS supporters who spread propaganda.

Amin was stoic as he read out a statement to the judge which said that he ‘did not expect sympathy’ and was ‘ready to accept any sentence given to him’.

He said: ‘I made my decisions, and I am prepared to bear their fullest consequences.’

According to The Washington Post the teen pleaded guilty in June to conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.

They described the teen, who used to be on the honor roll at Prince William County’s Osbourn Park High School as a sophisticated Islamic State supporter.

He was accused of furthering ISIS agenda online by promoting them on social media sites.

It was also alleged that he was ready to die for the group and sent a friend to fight for them on the front lines.

His family, however, dispute these claims.

They claim Amin was a troubled kid who lost himself while seeking acceptance online.

But evidence showed that he was very forthright when tweeting from account @AmreekiWitness.

In more than 7,000 messages, he voiced controversial views and unwavering support for ISIS to more than 4,000 followers.

And he even recruited on behalf of ISIS, helping a friend, Reza Niknejad, 18, to join the terrorist group in Syria, setting Niknejad up with his overseas contacts.

He then took his friend to the airport and sent picture messages as his friend arrived and made his way over the border, according to The Washington Post.

Prosecutors said he affected ‘worldwide security’ and alleged that Amin radicalized Niknejad to fight abroad. He is believed to still be overseas.

They said: ‘It likely, unfortunately, that he will accomplish the goal that this defendant set out for him; martyrdom in the name of ISIL.’

Niknejad was charged with conspiring to kill or injure people abroad and conspiring to provide material support to terrorists and the Islamic State.

Amin wrote that he now believes he was wrong to support ISIS saying: ‘I became lost and caught up in something that takes the greatest and most profound teachings of Islam and turns them into justifications for violence and death,’ he wrote.


Clearly he’s either lying or doesn’t understand Islam.
