A Harvard University librarian was arrested after he traveled to Gilpin County with the intention of having sex with a teenage girl only to learn he had been corresponding with a deputy, authorities said Tuesday.

Yahya Hussein Ahmad Melhem, 47, was arrested for investigation of attempted sexual exploitation of a child, Internet sexual exploitation of a child, Internet luring of a child and attempted child sexual assault, all felony charges.

Melhem was released on a $10,000 bail. He could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

Michelle Deakin, spokeswoman for Harvard Law School, declined to comment about the charge, including his employment status.

Gilpin County deputies arrested Melhem on Friday in a sting in which a deputy posed as a teenager, according to a Tuesday news release by the sheriff’s office.

Melhem was in the Denver area attending a conference.

On Nov. 19, a male deputy was on a social networking site portraying himself as a teen when Melhem allegedly exchanged messages with him thinking he was a young girl.

Melhem texted that he would rent a car and drive to Black Hawk to meet her.

Melhem wrote a message asking the “girl” to show him “her intimate body parts via webcam.” He also displayed sexually graphic video of himself to the deputy believing he was a girl.


Melhem had worked as a librarian for Islamic Law at Harvard Law School, according to staffdirectories. He was in Denver to attend the Middle Eastern Islamic Librarian conference, according to the affidavit.

Colorado, Kansas and South Carolina targeted to house Gitmo terrorists

And when they are freed, they will be freed in your backyards. via Pentagon to release Guantanamo detainee relocation plan, as Obama pressed ahead with closure

The Pentagon is expected to release a plan next week on President Obama’s years-long effort to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center that suggests a Colorado prison dubbed “the Alcatraz of the Rockies” as one suitable site to relocate expected life-long detainees, Obama administration officials say.

However, critics of the promise, including many Republicans, fear transferring detainees to the U.S. mainland as part of an overall closure plan poses too much of a homeland security risk. They also say the president has yet to submit a closure plan and have been critical of the administration recently allowing some known terrorists to return to the Middle East.

The Florence, Colo., prison is among seven U.S. facilities in Colorado, Kansas and South Carolina being considered.

The Pentagon plan represents a last-gasp effort by the administration to convince staunch opponents in Congress that dangerous detainees who can’t be transferred safely to other countries should be housed in a U.S.-based prison.

 The United States opened the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks to get suspected terrorists off the battlefield.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said this week that the administration is trying “very hard” to transfer 53 more detainees, among the 112 remaining, before the end of the year.

The rest are either facing trial by military commission or the government has determined that they are too dangerous to release but are not facing charges.

Any decision to select a U.S. facility would require congressional approval — something U.S. lawmakers say is unlikely. However, Earnest also suggested that Obama has not ruled out the possibility of using an executive order to close the facility.

A Pentagon assessment team reviewed the sites in recent months and detailed their advantages and disadvantages. They include locations, costs for renovations and construction, the ability to house troops and hold military commission hearings, and health care facilities.

Colorado’s Centennial Correctional Facility has advantages that could outweigh its disadvantages, according to officials. But no details were available and no conclusions have been reached. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

To approve a transfer, Defense Secretary Ash Carter must conclude that the detainees will not return to terrorism or the battlefield upon release and that there is a host country willing to take them and guarantee they will secure them.

The facilities reviewed by the assessment team were

  • the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks and Midwest Joint Regional Corrections Facility at Leavenworth, Kansas;
  • the Consolidated Naval Brig, Charleston, South Carolina;
  • the Federal Correctional Complex, which includes the medium, maximum and supermax facilities in Florence, Colorado; and
  • the Colorado State Penitentiary II in Canon City, Colorado, also known as the Centennial Correctional Facility.

Colorado Republican Sen. Cory Gardner made clear this week that he opposes any move to relocate detainees to his state.

“I will not sit idly by while the president uses political promises to imperil the people of Colorado by moving enemy combatants from Cuba, Guantanamo Bay, to my state of Colorado,” he said at a Capitol Hill news conference.

He also expressed concerns about the potential impact of such a move on the state’s judicial system and concerns about detainees potentially have to transported from the rural facility to downtown Denver to the federal courthouse for a hearing.

Colorado: Burqa-clad Statue of Liberty t-shirt pulled from Fort Carson kiosk

The shirt sums up what the U.S. military and most U.S. law enforcement has been trying to prevent for the last fourteen years. via T-shirt with burqa-clad Statue of Liberty pulled from mall kiosk h/t Islamist Watch

A T-shirt featuring the Statue of Liberty clad in a black burqa, torch raised in front of a crescent moon, with the words “Don’t let this happen America” was pulled from the shelves of a kiosk located in the mall area of the Fort Carson, Colorado, post exchange Monday after a complaint was lodged with exchange officials.

The shirt, which went on sale Sunday, violated exchange rules regarding the sale of “religious or political material,” Army and Air Force Exchange Service spokesman Chris Ward said. A customer notified an exchange manager Monday, and the item was removed hours later.

The customer was a client of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, an advocacy group that claims 43,000 clients who are or were service members, including 224 at Fort Carson, according to group founder and president Mikey Weinstein. Weinstein has demanded an apology from all involved as well as an Army Inspector General investigation into the matter.

“This is one of the worst things I’ve ever seen,” said Weinstein, an Air Force Academy graduate who founded the group in 2005. “This makes us [the military] look like crusaders. … This is not a small matter, this is a horrendous matter.”

No plans for an investigation or for punishment of the vendor, Merica Apparel, are in the works, Ward said, only to “remove [the shirt] and let them know we’re not going to let that happen again. … Maybe it’s more of an educational opportunity for the vendor.”

The vendor apologized for its role in the incident via a Wednesday afternoon statement provided by Ward to Army Times.

“As soon as it was brought to our attention that a member of the Fort Carson Military Community had an issue with the shirt, it was pulled from our shelves,” according to the statement. “We did not mean to offend anybody with our T-shirt’s [sic]. We would like to apologize to anyone that may have been offended, along with AAFES for bringing discredit [to] their organization as well. We realize that being a Military Community, there are people from all over the world with different cultural backgrounds living and working on Fort Carson.”

Did the atheist version of CAIR, MRFF, act on behalf of a Muslim in this case? Who else would oppose it?

Colorado: Muslims at CU-Boulder want prayer room…inside Engineering Center

It’s a silent invasion. It creeps. And keeps on creeping. It chokes the life out of all things non-Muslim. Less than 2% of the population are asking for a mini-mosque on campus. But, terrorism pays so be sure they’ll get it. via: Muslim students ask CU-Boulder for prayer room inside Engineering Center – Longmont Times-Call.

Muslim students at the University of Colorao are calling on school leaders to create a room inside the Engineering Center that they can use for their obligatory, five-times daily prayers while they’re on campus.

Currently, Muslim students say they pray under a set of stairs that lead up to the engineering school’s administrative offices and main lobby.

But, they argue, praying in that very public — and often loud — space is not ideal for connecting with God.

“It is a little bit uncomfortable,” said Nur Umar, a sophomore from Malaysia studying electrical engineering. “A lot of students are using those stairs to go up and down, so there are people walking by all the time. I’m getting used to noises when I pray, but I feel kind of uncomfortable with people seeing me pray.”

Umar said she worries about making other students uncomfortable, too.

Though it’s hard to say exactly how many Muslim students are enrolled in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, some 400 students signed a petition seeking a prayer room that they recently delivered to campus leaders.

According to the results of a 2014 climate survey conducted at the request of the CU Board of Regents, roughly 1.7 percent of students and 0.6 percent of faculty surveyed on the Boulder campus identified as Muslim.

Across the CU system, 2.1 percent of students and 0.5 percent of faculty surveyed identified as Muslim, with the highest number of Muslim students, 4.4 percent, attending CU Denver and the highest number of Muslim faculty members, 1.4 percent, working on the Colorado Springs campus.

The creation of a prayer room could help attract and keep religious students on campus by making them feel more comfortable and welcome, said Binet Alagic, a fourth-year mechanical engineering student.

“There is a lot of diversity on campus, but if they wish to keep it like that, then it’s necessary to respect and fulfill the needs of the students,” Alagic said.

Prayer is one of the core tenets of Islam, which requires most adult Muslims to pray five times a day: before sunrise, midday, before sunset, after sunset and at night.

Many engineering students spend the majority of their day at the Engineering Center, the hulking gray maze of classrooms, study spaces and offices near the corner of Colorado Avenue and Regent Drive.

But for Muslim students, balancing schoolwork with the obligations of their faith can prove challenging. Depending on their courseload and other commitments, students can end up praying two to four times a day in the Engineering Center stairwell.

Though some students pray at the Islamic Center of Boulder at 5495 Baseline Road, without a car, it’s a 20- to 30-minute bus ride each way, said Usama Anwar, who’s working toward a doctorate in electrical engineering.

“It’s not feasible, if you’re taking classes, to go over there three times a day,” said Anwar, who came to CU from Pakistan. “I maybe get over there once a week.”

Other students pray in the Muslim Student Association office inside the University Memorial Center, but if students are rushing between classes or work, that’s not ideal, either.

Anwar pointed out that during the winter months, the area under the stairs in the Engineering Center gets a cold rush of air each time students or faculty members open the double doors leading into the building.

He said he wants the prayer room to be open to everyone.

“We’re open to having a prayer room for Christians, Jews, anyone who wants to pray,” Anwar said.

Campus officials say that if a room is eventually designated in the Engineering Center, it couldn’t be a “prayer room,” per se, but rather, a room for quiet activities and reflection.

“What’s being looked at now is what can we do that’s within the law,” said Bronson Hilliard, a campus spokesman. “What we have to balance is the legal requirement of religious accommodation with the establishment clause of the First Amendment. All universities are in the same place, basically, that you can’t restrict people’s practice of their religion. But you also can’t go too far in using public facilities to accommodate it.”

Hilliard said officials in the engineering college and the student affairs division are looking for a room that could be suitable for “any kind of quiet, reflective activity,” including prayer.

He said the room can’t be labeled a prayer room or have any permanent faith symbol affixed to it.

Hilliard said he didn’t know whether there were other, similar rooms in existence elsewhere on campus already. Though planners had designed a meditation room for the Center for Community, it never actually was used that way once crews completed work on the building, Hilliard said.





FBI: Muslims Intimidating U.S. Military Families In Colorado & Wyoming

via FBI: Middle Eastern Men Intimidating U.S. Military Families In Colorado & Wyoming « CBS Denver.

DENVER (CBS4) – An alert has been issued by the FBI to all law enforcement agencies in Colorado and Wyoming involving U.S. military families and concerns about who may be watching them.

The alert says Middle Eastern men are approaching families of U.S. military members at their homes in Colorado and Wyoming. It mentions Greeley, Colorado, and Cheyenne, Wyoming, as the specific areas.

In one case last May the wife of a military member was approached in front of her home by two Middle Eastern males. The men stated that she was the wife of a U.S. interrogator. When she denied their claims the men laughed. The two men left the area in a dark-colored, four-door sedan with two other Middle Eastern males in the vehicle.

“The woman had observed the vehicle in the neighborhood on previous occasions,” the alert states.

Similar incidents in Wyoming have been reported to the FBI throughout June 2015.

“On numerous occasions family members of military personnel were confronted by Middle Eastern males in front of their homes.”

The FBI’s alert says Middle Eastern men attempted to gain personal information about military members and family members through intimidation. Those family members reported feeling scared.

The alert says the men haven’t been identified and the FBI isn’t sure if the incidents all involve the same men.

While the FBI won’t comment on the alert to CBS4, Colorado’s Department of Homeland Security says it is aware of it and says military families are encouraged to report any suspicious behavior to the FBI.

The alert says people in Colorado who are approached should contact the FBI Fort Collins Resident Agency at (970) 663-1028. In Wyoming contact the FBI Cheyenne Resident Agency at (307) 632-6224.


Apparently Middle Eastern is now code word for Muslim. Unless of course it was Middle Eastern Christians or Jews threatening military families as ISIS has directed.

Colorado: Biker group’s Ramadan-protest BBQ draws ire of terror group CAIR

via Outlaw motorcycle groups’ efforts to recruit military troops is worrisome, officials say – U.S. – Stripes. h/t BNI


The Infidels Motorcycle Club, a group made up of troops, veterans and military contractors in Colorado Springs, drew attention recently with its pig roast to protest the holiest of Muslim holidays.

The Infidels are a growing club that has drawn the wary gaze of ATF.

The agency says the club founded in 2006, with chapters near military bases nationwide, has been seen riding at events alongside notorious outlaw groups including the Hells Angels and Pagans in other states.

Police say the gang isn’t considered outlaw, and isn’t suspected of criminal ties.

Conversely, Muslim group CAIR has had numerous leaders convicted, jailed and deported for terror-related crimes, is an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror funding conviction in U.S. history, is banned by the FBI, and named a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates. See the sidebar section on Hamas-CAIR for details. And why do media outlets keep associating with terror-linked CAIR?

The Infidels, who didn’t respond to numerous calls for comment, portray themselves as something far removed from outlaw gangs.

“Infidels Motorcycle Club is a veteran-formed and -based MC for patriotic Americans and our supporting allies,” the group says on its website.

Sources familiar with the club say its leaders include several prominent Air Force Space Command contractors and a soldier from Fort Carson’s 4th Combat Aviation Brigade — people in positions of trust who carry security clearances.

The group advertised the June barbecue as “in defiance of the Muslim holiday of Ramadan” on a flier that included comparisons of Muslim men to pedophiles.

The anti-Islam rhetoric coming from people who appear to be on the Pentagon’s payroll upsets Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation’s largest Muslim rights group.

“It would be great concern if these were members of the military or contractors, not because of the barbecue, but because of the extremist views it represents,” Hooper said.

The pig roast, while offensive, doesn’t bother Hooper as much as the people behind it. It was a private, extremist party, he explained.

The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office kept a close eye on the event at the Infidels clubhouse near Peterson Air Force Base. A few dozen people gathered behind a guarded chain-link fence. The fence had a scrawled cardboard sign attached: “Private Party No Media Beyond This Point.”

Sheriff’s Lt. Rick McMorran said deputies were concerned that the party would draw protests from Islamic groups, or worse, from terror organizations.

The barbecue’s theme wasn’t a law-enforcement concern, though.

“From the standpoint of the Sheriff’s Office, we don’t get into the politics,” McMorran said.

The Fraud of Omaha’s Tri-Faith Initiative

via The Fraud of Omaha’s Tri-Faith Initiative

Dr. Stephen Kirby

The Tri-Faith Initiative in Omaha has lofty goals for the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim partners involved. It is best summed up in the Tri-Faith’s Vision Statement:

In working together, our vision is to build bridges of respect, trust and acceptance, to challenge stereotypes of each other, to learn from one another, and to counter the influence of extremists and agents of hate.

Among the Founding Principles is this statement:

 Each participant agrees to completely respect the beliefs and practices of the other participants. All beliefs shall be respected.

These are noble ideals, but the reality is that the Muslim partners can never respect and accept the beliefs of their Christian partners. This is because Islam teaches that Christianity is a false religion, based on a fraud, and initially spread by those who knew it was a fraud. The crux of the issue revolves around Jesus.

An Imposter on the Cross

Islam teaches that Jesus (‘Isa) was not crucified; instead, someone took his place on the cross. This is explicitly stated in Chapter 4, Verses 157-158 of the Koran:

 And because of their saying (in boast), “We killed Messiah ‘Isa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), the Messenger of Allah,” – but they killed him not nor crucified him, but it appeared so to them [the resemblance of ‘Isa (Jesus) was put over another man (and they killed that man)], and those who differ therein are full of doubts. They have no (certain) knowledge, they follow nothing but conjecture. For surely, they killed him not [i.e. ‘Isa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary)]; But Allah raised him [‘Isa (Jesus)] up (with his body and soul) to Himself (and he is in the heavens). And Allah is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise.

The authoritative Muslim scholar Ibn Kathir provided the explanation of these verses:

 Ibn Abi Hatim recorded that Ibn ‘Abbas said, “Just before Allah raised ‘Isa to the heavens, ‘Isa went to his companions, who were twelve inside the house. When he arrived, his hair was dripping water and he said, ‘There are those among you who will disbelieve in me twelve times after he had believed in me.’ He then asked, ‘Who volunteers that his image appear as mine, and be killed in my place. He will be with me (in Paradise)?’ One of the youngest ones among them volunteered and ‘Isa asked him to sit down. ‘Isa again asked for a volunteer, and the young man kept volunteering and ‘Isa asking him to sit down. Then the young man volunteered again and ‘Isa said, ‘You will be that man,’ and the resemblance of ‘Isa was cast over that man while ‘Isa ascended to heaven from a hole in the house. When the Jews came looking for ‘Isa, they found that young man and crucified him…”

Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Vol. 3, p. 28

So Islam teaches that instead of being crucified, Jesus first asked for a volunteer to take his place, and then was taken bodily to heaven while the volunteer, whom Allah had made to look like Jesus, was crucified in his place.

Ibn Kathir also made an interesting observation. He noted that those twelve companions in the house knew that Jesus ascended to heaven from the house and that it was the volunteer who was crucified (Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Vol. 3, p. 27). And of course, if there was no Crucifixion, there was no Resurrection.

The implication is that it was the Twelve Apostles in the house, which would mean that those Apostles then went out and knowingly preached a lie, based on a fraud, which spread across the world as the Christian religion. The Muslim partners in the Tri-Faith Initiative are supposed to respect and accept this?

And to add another nail in the coffin of respect and acceptance, a Muslim who knows his religion will look at a crucifix or a painting of the Crucifixion and see an imposter hanging on the cross.

Commonality with Jesus?

But isn’t there still a commonality in belief and acceptance among Christians and Muslims that Jesus will return to earth? Yes, both religions do believe that Jesus will return, but there is a vast difference in what is taught about the purpose of that return.

Here is what Muhammad said would happen when Jesus first returned:

 He [Jesus] will descend while wearing two long, light yellow garments. His head appears to be dripping water, even though no moisture touched it. He will break the cross, kill the pig, and banish the Jizyah and will call the people to Islam. During his time, Allah will destroy all religions except Islam…’Isa will remain for forty years and then will die, and Muslims will offer the funeral prayer for him.

Tafsir Ibn Kathir, Vol. 3, p. 32

So during those forty years after Jesus returned, Allah would destroy all religions except Islam, and Jesus would be breaking the cross of Christianity and calling the people to Islam. The Jizyah is the protection money demanded of Jews and Christians in 9:29 of the Koran in lieu of fighting to the death or converting to Islam. So when Islam’s Jesus returns to earth, the Jizyah will be banished simply because the only religion allowed will be Islam.

And, according to Muhammad, Jesus would also be judging mankind by the laws of the Koran:

 Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah’s Messenger said, “How will you be when the son of Maryam (Mary) [‘Isa (Jesus)] descends amongst you, and he will judge people by the law of the Qur’an and not by the law of the Gospel.”

Sahih Al-Bukhari, No. 3449

So when it comes to the meaning of Jesus’ return to earth, there is no respect or acceptance extended to Christians by Islamic doctrine.

Shirk, the Unforgiveable Sin

Christians believe that Jesus is the Son of God. According to Islamic doctrine, this means that Christians are ascribing a “partner” to Allah; in Islam this is the sin of Shirk. And in 4:48 the Koran states that Shirk is the one sin that Allah will not forgive:

 Verily, Allah forgives not that partners should be set up with Him (in worship), but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He wills; and whoever sets up partners with Allah in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin.

And 3:151 of the Koran states what is to be done to those engaging in Shirk:

 We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers).

So those engaging in Shirk will have terror cast into their hearts and they are destined for the Fires of Hell.

This was reiterated by Muhammad:

 Narrated ‘Abdullah: The Prophet said one statement and I said another. The Prophet said “Whoever dies while still invoking anything other than Allah as a rival to Allah, will enter Hell (Fire).” And I said, “Whoever dies without invoking anything as a rival to Allah, will enter Paradise.”

Sahih Al-Bukhari, No. 4497

So Christians, by definition, engage in Shirk, the unforgivable sin in Islam that condemns Christians to the Fires of Hell.


The Christian partners of Omaha’s Tri-Faith Initiative are waiting in vain if they expect Islamic doctrine to respect Christianity. According to Islamic doctrine, Christianity is simply a false religion based on a fraud, and Christians are destined for Hell. How can a devout Muslim respect such a religion?
