Three people linked to the couple whose December shooting rampage in San Bernardino left 14 people dead were arrested Thursday on conspiracy, marriage fraud and other charges.

The three include Syed Raheel Farook, brother of Syed Rizwan Farook who with his wife, Tashfeen Malik, also wounded 22 people before both died in a police shootout.

Raheel Farook, 31, his wife, Tatiana Farook, 31, and her sister Mariya Chernynk were named in a five-count indictment describing a scheme designed to allow Chernykh to syed-raheel-farookremain in the U.S. Chernykh, 26, is married to Enrique Marquez, Jr., who has been awaiting trial since December on charges of conspiring with Rizwan Farook in 2011 and 2012 to provide material support to terrorists.

Malik and Rizwan Farook opened fire at a holiday party at San Bernardino’s Inland Regional Center on Dec. 2. Syed Rizwan Farook had worked as an environmental health specialist for San Bernardino County for five years and had been at the party with his co-workers before leaving and returning with his wife, four guns and a bomb.

FBI Director James Comey described the couple as “homegrown violent extremists” who had become radicalized over a period of years but were not part of a foreign militant group. The Islamic State claimed the man-and-wife team, who left behind a 6-month-old daughter, were supporters of the organization.

All the latest charges stem from the investigation into the attack, U.S. Attorney Eileen Decker said in a statement.

“This is the latest step in the comprehensive investigation into the horrific attacks in San Bernardino,” Decker said. “We owe the victims and the entire community of San Bernardino a thorough investigation that uncovers all criminal activity surrounding these events.”

The investigation determined that Marquez agreed to marry Chernykh so she could obtain immigration benefits otherwise not available to her because she is a Russian citizen without legal status in the United States. Marquez, in addition to the terror-related counts, also is charged with marriage fraud and making a false statement on immigration documents related to an alleged sham marriage.

The indictment alleges Marquez received money from Chernykh to enter into the sham marriage.

Raheel Farook and Tatiana Farook conspired by witnessing Marquez and Chernykh’s wedding, taking staged family pictures of Marquez and Chernykh, establishing a joint checking account for the couple and creating a back-dated lease for Marquez and Chernykh to create the illusion that they shared a marital residence.

The indictment charges all three in a conspiracy to knowingly make false statements under oath with respect to immigration documents, a charge that carries a statutory maximum sentence of five years in federal prison. Chernykh also faces a charge of document fraud, perjury and two counts of lying to federal agents. Those charges carry a combined maximum sentence of 25 years.

In February, the FBI conducted an hours-long search of Raheel Farook’s home in Corona, Calif. Authorities declined to reveal the target of the search or what was found. Later that month the case made national news again when the Justice Department went to court trying to force Apple to break into Rizwan Farook’s iPhone. The FBI ultimately paid an outside party more than $1.3 million to hack the phone.

California: Father of Jihad Suspect to Muslims: ‘Don’t Even Think About Telling Govt’

And he’s a “non-religious” Muslim. Source: Father Of Fremont Terror Suspect Regrets Turning Him In To The FBI: SFist

Sal Shafi, the father of 22-year-old Adam Shafi who was detained by federal authorities last year for attempting to fly to Turkey out of SFO with the alleged intention of joining a terrorist group, admits that he was the person who first alerted the government to his son’s growing radicalization. He tells the New York Times that he is not religious himself, and that he always trusted the government, which is why he sought their help after he realized that his son had begun following radical imams online, and was attempting to travel to Turkey — a common gateway into Syria for those looking to join the Islamic State — for the second time.

The elder Shafi’s attorney told him not to say anything else to the feds if they asked, but a few weeks later he received a visit from FBI agents and invited them in. Mr. Shafi admitted that he had fears about his son’s depression, and allowed them to interview Adam at a coffeeshop. But by the time Adam got to SFO in June 2015, agents were already tracking his whereabouts. And while his father had hoped that the FBI would be sympathetic and perhaps be able to put Adam in some sort of radicalization deprogramming, such programs don’t actually exist, and Adam now faces a possible 20 years in prison.

The family’s attorney insists “There is no evidence that [Adam] was planning to do anything but fly to Istanbul, which is where he had been the year before for two days where he attempted to help the refugees and returned home. There is no statement by him that he was intending to go to Syria or join any designated terrorist group.”


But there is this from the same NYT’s piece mentioned above:

In December, the Justice Department unsealed the case and prepared for trial. In court documents, prosecutors said that neither a well-intentioned father nor the threat of an F.B.I. investigation were enough to steer Adam Shafi away from terrorism. Mr. Shafi’s efforts aside, prosecutors said, his son was simply too dangerous to remain free.

Mr. Shafi said, the agents mentioned the Boston Marathon bombing and said they believed his son had been radicalized. Mr. Shafi laughed. “I don’t think so,” he told them. “I can assure you that Adam is not violent.”

The F.B.I. had good reason to doubt those assurances — agents had been secretly eavesdropping on Adam Shafi’s phone conversations.

“I just hope Allah doesn’t take my soul until I have at least, like, a couple gallons of blood that I’ve spilled for him,” he said in one conversation last June, according to court records. He also mused about killing American soldiers.

In another call, he said the Islamic State killed too indiscriminately, but he admired the Nusra Front, which is linked to Al Qaeda. Nusra, like the United States, is fighting both the Islamic State and the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad. But it is a designated terrorist group, and supporting it is illegal. “I am completely fine dying with these guys,” he said, according to court documents.

The process has shaken Mr. Shafi’s faith, both in his decisions as a parent and in his government.

“Every minute, I just imagine him in that solitary confinement, facing 20 years, because I cooperated with the government,” he said, adding, “It’s a horrible feeling. I can’t get rid of it.”

His message now to parents of troubled or confused children? “Don’t even think about going to the government.”


All the more reason to ban immigration of Muslims.

It’s going to get much, much worse in America as the Muslim population explodes – no pun intended.

Just like Hamas-front group CAIR tells Muslims.

The Dept. of Jihad (DOJ) is worried about a backlash but unconcerned about jihad

The community roundtable hosted by Sacramento U.S. Attorney Ben Wagner was part of a nationwide interagency initiative, “Combating Religious Discrimination Today,” launched by the U.S. Justice Department in 11 federal districts. The roundtable was held to help encourage the community to report hate crimes and religious discrimination in schools, work places and neighborhoods.

Along with nine Muslim American leaders from various mosques and organizations, the roundtable included Manny Fernandez and Bob Tripp from the FBI, Mike Bray from the Sacramento Police Department, Folsom Police Chief Cynthia Renaud, and Dave Torgerson and Naeem Alvi of the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.

Alvi, one of several Muslim deputies, said he often visits local mosques and community organizations to break down fear of law enforcement.

Rashid Ahmad, former president of the downtown mosque and founding president of Sacramento’s Council on American-Islamic Relations…“If there’s any radicalization here we would know about it and report it; we are the allies of law enforcement,” Ahmad said.

Really? Because CAIR is a designated Muslim terrorist group in the UAE, named an unidicted co-conspirator in the largest Muslim terror financing conviction in the U.S. and banned by the FBI. In fact, CAIR specifically tells Muslims NOT to talk to law enforcement. Here is a poster from a California branch of CAIR (Hamas), “Build a Wall of Resistance – “Don’t Talk to the FBI”

Meanwhile, Father Of Fremont Muslim Terror Suspect Regrets Turning Him In To The FBI and tells other Muslims not to work with the government.

San Diego: Iraqi Immigrant Couple Enslaved Maid in Their Home

Another immigration loophole that not only takes jobs away from Americans but allows slavery to thrive in the U.S., frequently at the hands of Muslims.

Source: Feds: San Diego Couple Enslaved Their Maid

A San Diego-based Iraqi couple allegedly enslaved a domestic worker in their home, forcing her to work up to 18 hours a day with no pay, according to charges filed in federal court Friday.

Firas Majeed and Shatha Abbas moved to California from Dubai just over two years ago, prosecutors say. A short time after they immigrated, the husband and wife also allegedly brought over an Indonesian domestic servant, identified in court documents only as W.M. The woman spoke no English and was only able to escape by slipping a nurse a plea for help in her native language.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents raided the home on March 22 and removed the woman.

The couple’s “scheme intended to cause the victim to believe that she would suffer physical restraint if she did not perform labor and services,” the government said in a press release. The duo allegedly also hid the domestic worker’s passport and restricted her ability to travel.

Social media accounts belonging to the couple show Majeed is originally from Iraq. His LinkedIn page says he’s worked for the last two-and-a-half years as a construction supervisor, and worked before that in Dubai. Calls to his employer were not returned.

Since arriving in the couple’s El Cajon apartment in November 2015, the Indonesian woman was required to work 16- to 18-hour days, according to prosecutors. She allegedly got no days off and no pay.

Charges against the couple allege that the domestic worker was previously kept at a relative’s home in Dubai, where she worked 20-hour days for five years straight.

The woman tried to flee her captors in the UAE when they left the door unlocked one day, the San Diego Union Tribune reports. She made it to the Indonesian consulate, but her employer was called and he took her back, promising to free her after three months and return her to Indonesia.

“The victim was not paid a salary, and was directed to travel to the United States and work at the home of Majeed and Abbas,” the government press release states.

Over the winter, health-care workers visited the home and noticed the domestic worker, and eventually one of them received her note and alerted authorities.

Majeed and Abbas denied W.M.’s claims in statements to investigators, according to the Union-Tribune. They claimed a blind family member was mentally keeping track of the salary she was owed, at her own request.

Neighbors of the couple said they were shocked by the news.

“It’s sad that people can do that to someone, as a human being,” Sandra Isaak told NBC 7. “I wouldn’t treat an animal like that, it’s crazy. It’s not normal, it’s not human.”

The arrest is only the latest in an epidemic of enslaved domestic workers trafficked to America from abroad.

The ACLU notes that many domestic slaves in America are victims of foreign diplomats, who are immune from prosecution in the United States. They’re often told “they will have good jobs with benefits and they will enjoy the protection of U.S. laws.”

But Majeed and Abbas have no such immunity. The couple is charged with forced labor, trafficking with respect to forced labor, and document servitude, which carry a total maximum prison sentence of more than 40 years. It’s not immediately clear whether they have an attorney. Attempts to reach the couple for comment were unsuccessful as of press time.

Los Angeles: Father, Shehada Issa, killed son for being gay

LOS ANGELES (AP) – A Los Angeles man charged with fatally shooting his 29-year-old son for being gay had repeatedly threatened to kill him over his sexual orientation, prosecutors say.

Amir Issa, 29, was found shot to death just outside the family home on Tuesday. While the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office charged father Shehada Issa, 69, on Friday with murder as a hate crime in the son’s death, investigators on Saturday still were trying to determine responsibility for a second killing at the home discovered by police at the same time, that of Amir’s mother, police spokesman Officer Mike Lopez said.

 The mother, 68-year-old Rabihah Issa, had been stabbed repeatedly, coroner’s Lt. David Smith said.

Shehada Issa told police he shot his son Amir in self-defense after he discovered his wife’s body in their house.

Prosecutors gave a different motive for the son’s killing, however. “The murder was committed because of the victim’s sexual orientation and because of the defendant’s perception of that status and the victims’ association with a person and a group of that status,” prosecutors said in a statement.

They did not elaborate. Police had no details Saturday on any of the alleged threats the father had made against his gay son.

Police arrested Issa at the scene Tuesday, after he made statements incriminating himself in the death of his son, Lopez said.

“He claimed (the son) was armed with a knife, and there was no knife to be found. It was a horrible family tragedy,” Detective John Doerbecker told the Los Angeles Daily News.

Authorities say the father used a shotgun to shoot his son in the abdomen and face, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Doerbecker told the Daily News that there had been problems between the father and son, including the son reportedly vandalizing the home. He said the couple was evicting the son.

Issa is being held without bail pending his arraignment on April 11. He faces up to life in prison if convicted of the charge.

17 Muslims Detained, Released After Chanting Allah Akbar, Firing Rifles, Shotguns Near San Bernardino

Source: FBI Investigating Reports Of 17 Men Chanting, Firing Off Shots In Apple Valley « CBS Los Angeles

APPLE VALLEY (CBSLA.com) — The FBI on Tuesday continued to investigate an incident in which 17 men were detained for reportedly firing off hundreds of rounds in a remote part of Apple Valley.

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies and an FBI agent responded to the scene Sunday morning and detained the men – reportedly all of Middle Eastern descent – who were camping out in the Deep Creek Hot Springs area Sunday morning, authorities said.

A 911 caller reported hearing over 100 shots fired and seeing five to seven men wearing turbans and shooting “assault rifles, handguns, and shotguns,” according to a Sheriff’s Department statement.

A county sheriff’s helicopter located the men walking near a creek with backpacks “and other items”, The Los Angeles Times reported.

Officials say the men were cooperative as they were detained and searched.

Several handguns, a rifle, and a shotgun were found at the scene, but a records check found all the weapons were registered with the exception of the rifle, which reportedly didn’t have a serial number because it was purchased in parts, an FBI spokesperson told The Times.

Police scanner traffic posted online by the Victor Valley News Group described “a large group of subjects wearing turbans and chanting” at the scene.

“They were up all night chanting ‘Allah akbar’-type stuff,” an unidentified officer is heard saying on the audio recording.

None of the hikers interviewed by Sheriff’s investigators say they witnessed any shots being fired, according to Sheriff’s officials.

A photo of the arrests showing several men handcuffed at the scene was posted by the Victor Valley News Group but was not immediately confirmed by authorities.

All 17 men were eventually released because Sheriff’s investigators say they had no outstanding warrants or criminal histories.

“There was no evidence found that a crime had been committed by any of the subjects who were detained and they were released,” a Sheriff’s spokesperson said.

The FBI will conduct further interviews with the men to determine if any crimes were committed.

Nearby residents said they were concerned by the activity.

“If there’s something going on wouldn’t you want your local police or law enforcement to take care of it so that citizens like you or myself don’t have to ate it into their own hands?” said a resident, Eliseo Rodriguez.


Update: Details about this incident are scant and it looks like the police/feds/media are not being forthcoming. From one of the original reports that includes victims/witness statements:  SHOTS FIRED AT CAMPERS/HIKERS IN APPLE VALLEY – HOT SPRINGS, CA; ARMED TERROR CELL NEAR LOS ANGELES? COPS RESPONDED — THEN LET THEM ALL GO !!!!

8:28 PM EDT Sunday, 27 March (Easter)– A heavily armed group of men with Middle Eastern appearance was arrested two hours ago outside Los Angeles after opening fire upon Hikers and Campers in a large State Park in the area.

A call to the Adelanto, CA Police Department went to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and a new “twist” developed.”  Kathy, from that department told SuperStation95  “I checked on this and the incident was unfounded.”  When told we had photos of almost ten police cars and fourteen men in handcuffs, Kathy responded “You’ll have to contact the Public Information Officer” and gave us an e-mail address to do so!

You’re looking at the pictures; does this look “unfounded” to you?

California: Muslim Uber driver arrested for raping woman after driving her home

Life in the enclave city officials have officially named “Little Arabia.”

Source: Anaheim Uber driver arrested on suspicion of raping woman after ride from bar – The Orange County Register

An Uber driver is suspected of raping a woman at an Anaheim motel after giving her a ride from a Fullerton bar, leading authorities to ask for the public’s help in locating other potential victims.

Omar Mahmoud Mousa, 52, of Anaheim is expected to appear in court on April 8 to face felony charges of rape, forcible oral copulation and sexual penetration by foreign object in connection with the Oct. 25 incident, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.

The latest incident comes amid growing national concern over the safety of Uber and other app-based ride-sharing services.

The company in a statement on Thursday said: “Uber has a zero-tolerance policy for violent behavior, and our thoughts are with the victim of this atrocious crime. We immediately blocked this individual’s access to the Uber platform upon learning of this incident and actively assisted law enforcement in their investigation.”

Prosecutors said Mousa was working as a driver for Uber when he picked up a 21-year-old woman and her female friend at their Anaheim motel room and drove them to a bar in Fullerton.

Mousa gave the women his business card and told them to call him directly when they planned to leave, rather than going through Uber, authorities said.

Several hours later, one of the women called Mousa and he gave them a ride back to their motel, helping them into their room, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said the victim’s friend immediately passed out, and Mousa then placed the victim on the same bed as her friend. The woman was intoxicated, prosecutors said, but told Mousa “no” multiple times as he raped her before she managed to push him away.

The woman contacted the Anaheim Police Department. Charges were filed against Mousa on Jan. 25, but authorities say he was out of the country.

An arrest warrant was issued, and Mousa was taken into custody at Los Angeles International Airport as he returned to the United States on March 7. He was taken to the Orange County Jail on Tuesday.

If convicted, Mousa faces up to 24 years in prison. He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Orange County court records show no history of felony convictions for Mousa.

The rapidly growing Uber company, based in San Francisco, has faced scrutiny in the wake of recent high-profile incidents.

Authorities were not saying what country he had traveled to or whether he was a native-born American, a naturalized citizen or some other status.
