Oregon: Conviction upheld for Muslim who plotted to kill Americans at Christmas tree lighting

Source: Appeals court upholds bomb conviction for Mohamed Mohamud

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A federal appeals court has upheld the conviction of Mohamed Mohamud, the Somali American sentenced to 30 years in prison for plotting to bomb downtown Portland during the annual lighting of a Christmas tree.

The truck bomb was a fake given to him in 2010 by undercover FBI agents posing as terrorists.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Monday that a U.S. District Court judge properly rejected Mohamud’s claim of entrapment. The 50-page opinion states the government’s conduct was quite aggressive, but the sting fell short of a due process violation.

The court also rejected an assertion that the warrantless surveillance of his foreign communications violated his constitutional rights.


More background here and here including comments from Mohamed’s mother:

Mohamud’s mother, Mariam Barre, said she was very disappointed with the sentence.

“We are Muslim, and our religion does not to kill innocent people,” she said to a group of reporters and photographers outside the courthouse.

But…Muslims do not consider non-Muslim innocent nor any Muslim who does not abide by the sharia and believe in jihad. And double Mo’ said this about his own parents in a martyrdom video:

On Nov. 4, the court documents say, Mohamud made a video in the presence of one of the undercover agents, putting on clothes he described as “Sheik Osama style:” a white robe, red and white headdress, and camouflage jacket.

He read a statement speaking of his dream of bringing “a dark day” on Americans and blaming his family for thwarting him, according to the court documents:

“To my parents who held me back from Jihad in the cause of Allah. I say to them … if you — if you make allies with the enemy, then Allah’s power … will ask you about that on the day of judgment, and nothing that you do can hold me back …
