NC: Muslims arrested in khat, food stamp fraud

Khat is a drug that gained notoriety in Black Hawk Down and has been a growing problem in the U.S. as Somali Muslims are imported in larger numbers to the U.S.

Feds bust suspected Yemeni terror ring in N.C. via WND

Convenience stores, mosque raided in alleged al-Qaida finance scheme

Federal agents have raided several convenience stores and a mosque in tiny Henderson, N.C., while arresting at least two Muslim men in connection with the raid.

Authorities suspect the stores were operating a so-called hawala money-transfer network supporting terrorist activities in Yemen, including al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, WND has learned. AQAP’s leaders include fugitive al-Qaida cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who has been linked to 10 major terror plots in the past year alone.

Mohamed Mohamed Nagi, 33, and Abdullah Ahmed Almuwallad, 32, have been charged with food stamp fraud. Additionally, Almuwallad has been charged with transporting stolen cigarettes and possession of the illegal stimulant cathinone, more commonly known a khat. Khat is popular in many countries of the Arabian peninsula and the Horn of Africa, but in Yemen it’s a full-blown national addiction.

FBI agents have had both men under surveillance for several months. Federal, state and local law enforcement agents on Thursday searched four stores in Henderson, located about 40 miles north of Raleigh, N.C., including the stores where Nagi and Almuwallad worked. Agents converged on the targets using a helicopter and unmarked cars.

  1. These guys cost the U.S. so much money to track, apprehend and legally manage them they should give non-muslim types double / triple cuts in line.

  2. I’m happy to see that US authorities are going after the Mooslime, unlike the ones in some European countries, eg. Sweden and Britain/

    The US will NEVER be an Islamic nation !

  3. Look out America! CAIR and all the rest of the muslims in the states will now claim they are being “un-fairly’ being picked on!

  4. Aren’t some refugees & immigrants wonderful?

    They bring their customs & culture to our country and “share” it with us (whether we want it or not and whether it’s legal or not) and they have so much respect for our laws and customs.

    I say we are BLESSED to have such an opportunity to learn about to how circumvent the law and force others to kneel to demands and wield power through intimidation. These are things we probably would never have experienced without them.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
