As we posted back in October, US Muslim Brotherhood Coalition Meets White House Officials, Recommends More Muslim “Refugees.”
It’s not without coincidence that at least one of the Muslims involved in building an Islamic enclave specifically for Syrian Muslim “refugees” in Pontiac, Michigan is related to the terror-linked Muslim group that urged the White House to import more Muslim refugees. Evidence suggests they’ve been planning – possibly coordinating with the State Dept. – for quite some time. From the link above:

Eight area residents formed two companies and purchased 120 lots on 10 Pontiac city blocks west of Woodward near Franklin to build the new homes.

The group — who formed Live In Pontiac LLC and Pontiac Community Investment — started by buying the vacant, boarded-up Franklin Elementary School on Franklin Road.
The school will be revamped as a community center for the newcomers.
“The school is what made us choose (to come here),” said Malaz Alatassi of Bloomfield Hills, who with his friend, Ismael Basha, met Wednesday to review their plans.
Watch for the homes to be constructed within three to five months, said the investors.
“We’re getting quotes from builders,” said Basha, who runs a manufacturing business in Warren.
Driving the investors is the estimated 9 million Syrians who have fled their homes since the outbreak of civil war in March 2011, according to the website, http://syrianrefugees.eu. The U.S. has announced it will accept 85,000 refugees from around the world next year, and 100,000 in 2017, according to the Associated Press.
Basha immigrated to the U.S. in 1983, following a brother who had come ahead of him.
Basha, his wife Rasha and friends traveled to Washington, D.C. a year ago to learn what might be needed to help refugees.
See first link above.
“We learned it’s a process,” said Basha.
Syrian refugees have been coming to Oakland County, Dearborn and Detroit, he said. Local Syrian-Americans have been volunteering their time to help the newcomers.
State Rep. Tim Greimel, a Democrat from Auburn Hills, has been working with the investors to ensure a “smooth transition,” said Greimel aide Angelal Powell.
Pontiac Mayor Deirdre Waterman has been “magnificent” with the investors, said Basha. Oakland County Treasurer Andy Meisner — who has been working with the investors for six months — has been a “strong advocate” in finding the needed properties, he said.
Meisner said the Pontiac lots sold to the investors averaged $250 each in cost.
“We’re not asking for handouts,” said Basha. “We paid what they asked for the lots.”
Basha estimated once the housing is up, more than $200,000 annually will be added to Pontiac’s revenue.
“And there will be beautiful homes on the lots,” said Alatassi, a physician who specializes in internal medicine.
Alatassi estimated the homes to be built on the land will average $70,000 in cost.
The homes will be available via land contracts, he said. Basha said they will be not be exclusively for Syrians but available to all.
Meisner said families will be coming in and sending their children to local schools.
“This will grow and stabilize neighborhoods,” he said. The new residents will “add to the wonderful mixing pot in Pontiac and Oakland County. My hope is the city will recognize this as an opportunity to do a great good, putting out the welcome mat to new Americans.”
Alatassi said the project for him has been a “very positive and inspiring” effort.
“We started this to help the people of our country.”

Several who work in his office are refugees from the Balkan war in the 1990s who settled in Hamtramck and other cities.
Refugees like Assad usually get three months of assistance that helps with shelter and food. After that, they’re on their own. Assad, who arrived in June, is concerned, as his assistance of $760 per month will end in October. He doesn’t speak English and was a house painter in Syria, doing odd jobs to support his wife, two sons and three daughters, ages 8-19.

“They are innocent, hardworking people,” said Rasha Basha of Bloomfield Hills, with Women for Humanity, a Michigan group that helps Syrian refugees. “They deserve a chance.”
How many front groups do the Basha’s and other human traffickers have? How much of your tax dollars are they raking in from the government?
