Florida: Pulse nightclub jihadi’s Muslim wife to stand trial in Orlando

via Pulse nightclub shooter’s wife to stand trial in Orlando

The wife of Omar Mateen, the gunman who killed 49 people at an Orlando nightclub last year in the name of ISIS, will stand trial in the Florida city, a judge ordered Wednesday.

Noor Salman’s attorneys had filed a motion in September to have her trial moved to another city, claiming that media coverage of her husband’s attack and remarks from Orlando Police Chief John Mina wouldn’t allow her to have a fair trial, according to WESH.

Salman has been charged with providing material support to a terror organization and obstruction of justice, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Salman’s husband, Mateen, killed 49 people and wounded almost 70 others when he opened fire at Pulse nightclub on June 12, 2016 in one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history.

The gay bar on the night of the shooting was packed with more than 300 people. Mateen called 911 when he was pulling off the attack to pledge his allegiance to ISIS, and was shouting “Allahu akbar” while engaging officers, law enforcement sources told Fox News around the time of the attack.

Salman knew about her husband’s plan before the shooting and how he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State terror group, prosecutors said. She shopped with her husband the night before the attack when he bought five containers of ammunition, a source close to the investigation told Fox News.

The motion filed for Salman, according to the Sentinel, cited remarks made by the police chief, one of which said: “I am glad to see that Omar Mateen’s wife has been charged with aiding her husband in the commission of the brutal attack on the Pulse nightclub.”

The statement stems from comments Mina made when Salman was arrested in January. He said her arrest provides “some relief in knowing that someone will be held accountable for that horrific crime.”

The judge’s order quoted a U.S. Supreme Court ruling which said, “prominence of media coverage does not necessarily produce prejudicing and juror impartiality does not require ignorance,” WESH reported.

Salman’s trial is scheduled for March 1.

  1. ‘Bout time for some accomplice liability. This charging decision should be applauded and encouraged in every western jurisdiction.

  2. Who is paying the defense lawyer, you might ask? That would be Charles D. Swift, Esq. of The Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America. Atty Swift is director of said 501 c 3 charity. Again one might ask, who is paying for Mr. Swift and his charity to defend Ms. Salman? That would be The Muslim Legal Fund of America, another 501 c 3 charity. And yet again, one might ask, who is paying MLFA to pay CLCM to pay for Ms. Salman’s defense? That would be the umbrella organization The United States Council of Muslim Organizations!

    Yes, ladies and gents, the collective hive of all the Muslim charities in America is paying for Ms. Salman’s defense. They are not making donations to stop terrorism, they are making donations to defend terrorists. And all those donations are tax deductible at the American citizens expense.

    These are the same people and organizations that paid for the defense of those found guilty in the Holy Land Foundation trials and other terrorist trials.

    It’s all really quite diabolical when you take the pieces apart. They murder us, then use our legal and tax system to get themselves off.

  3. All you have to do is look back to The Muslim Brotherhood to see their plan to take over The United States which is part of their plan to take over the entire world with Islam. They have infiltrated positions in our government. Building up and at all levels during the obama administration. The following are quotes from the official document from a 1991 meeting which outlines the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic goals for North America. The document was entered as evidence in the 2008 Holyland Terror Funding Trial. Federal investigators found the document in the home of Ismael Elbarasse, a founder of the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, during a 2004 search. Elbarasse was a member of the Palestine Committee, which the Muslim Brotherhood had created to support Hamas in the United States.
    Page 4 of 18: “Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning: establishing an effective and a stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims’ efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic State wherever it is.”
    Page 5 of 18: “…the Movement must plan and struggle to obtain “the keys” and the tools of this process in carry out [sic] this grand mission as a ‘Civilization Jihadist’ responsibility.”
    Page 7 of 18: “The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…”
    “[W]e must possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions’, the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’”
    Page 18 of 18: “A list of our organizations and the organizations of our friends” – This is where the Muslim Brotherhood listed its front groups in the U.S.. Note that prominent organizations like CAIR, ISNA, ICNA and others are named here.

  4. Would add aiding and abetting along with lying to law enforcement: no bail, no tax paid for lawyer, she must pay for her defense,

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