Why Did Huma Abedin Bring Desecration of Koran in Michigan to Sec of State Clinton’s Attention?

Source: Why Did Huma Abedin Feel the Need to Bring the Desecration of a Koran to Sec of State Clinton’s Attention? | BEN WEINGARTEN

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was understandably kept abreast of all manner of news from all over the world during her tenure as Secretary of State.

But buried amidst the thousands of emails recently released by the State Department is one news report of particular interest sent from top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Here is Abedin’s note:

This email begs the question: Why did Huma Abedin feel the need to bring the desecration of a Koran in East Lansing, MI to the attention of the Secretary of State?

Did Abedin feel that Clinton might be concerned about the news “inciting” attacks in America or abroad?

Might she have felt that such a story could be leveraged politically?

Was it just something Abedin as a Muslim found personally reprehensible, that she felt her confidant ought to be made aware of?

Whatever the reason that Huma Abedin felt the need to give a heads-up to Hillary Clinton on this particular story, this and the hundreds if not thousands of emails between them remind us that though the press may ignore it, a Muslim Brotherhood-tied aide has been closer to Mrs. Clinton than perhaps anyone else for many years, including critical ones at Foggy Bottom.


Note the Koran burning was reported by another Muslim Brotherhood entity, the terror-named Hamas front group CAIR and it took place in Lansing, Michigan – where the mayor celebrates the month of jihad – Ramadan – on 9/11.

FBI to Put Muslim Terrorists in Counseling, Not Jail

“This new FBI is totally different.’’

Indeed. via FBI to Seek Counseling, Not Handcuffs, for Some Islamic State Suspects – WSJ.

Faced with a wave of potential homegrown Islamic State supporters, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is embarking on a new approach with some suspects: putting them in counseling rather than handcuffs.

Federal and local officials working on counterterrorism say the logistical challenges posed by Islamic State’s propaganda—its slick online messages are readily available to anyone—make it difficult to address the problem solely through traditional investigations.

Proponents of the intervention model say it provides a possible “off ramp” from radicalization and addresses a hard truth: The FBI cannot effectively investigate all of the thousands of Americans who are believed to be interested in Islamic State, also known as ISIS.

The challenge is particularly acute for teenage suspects, because the federal criminal justice system is poorly equipped to prosecute minors, officials said.

“Nobody wants to see a 15-year-old kid go to jail if they don’t have to,’’ said one official working on the effort. That official said that when the FBI recommends a potential suspect for counseling, the criminal investigation will continue and agents will be prepared to make an arrest if they believe the person becomes more dangerous.

The issue has sparked an intense debate inside federal law enforcement, where many fear deadly consequences if they misjudge a suspect who is sent to counseling instead of being arrested.

“I get the principle, but there are a lot of potential problems with this, and I think it’s a wrong move,’’ said Peter Ahearn a former FBI counterterrorism agent. “I’m not saying it shouldn’t be done but it shouldn’t be done by the FBI. That’s not the mission.’’

In Dearborn, Mich., Police Chief Ronald Haddad’s officers were contacted about a month ago by a family worried their son might try to join Islamic State. Police ended up steering the teen toward psychiatric help, the chief said.

Such an intervention doesn’t stop a criminal investigation, but Mr. Haddad said the goal is to avoid any potential violence or arrest, if possible. In a city where roughly a third of the population claims some Arab heritage, several counterterrorism officials said Dearborn’s police department is better equipped than most to do such outreach and intervention.

The chief said that if someone is plotting an attack or a crime that person will be arrested. His hope is that police can catch individuals before they reach that stage and set them on another course.

The teenager’s case is still being worked out. “But I can tell you what didn’t happen—he didn’t harm anyone here,’’ said Mr. Haddad, who is one of the country’s biggest proponents of intervention.

In Dearborn, an intervention case typically starts when authorities, often local police, are tipped about a person’s behavior that worries family, friends or acquaintances.

“We can refer it to a school counselor, where appropriate, clergy, a psychiatric ward, and part of the intervention on the part of the police is to thoroughly research—not investigate but research—to make sure there are no weapons, no previous assaultive behavior,’’ Mr. Haddad said.

The approach is increasingly embraced by the Obama administration as part of a broader initiative federal officials call countering violent extremism, or CVE—which focuses on countering terrorist propaganda and spotting problematic behavior early.

Don Borelli, a former FBI counterterrorism official, noted the approach has been used in Europe for years, and said that with proper legal guidance and training, could work here.

Hennepin County, Minn., Sheriff Richard Stanek also attended the FBI gathering last month. He said intervention isn’t much different from what police have long done to lure young men away from street gangs.

Mr. Stanek said he was encouraged by the move but cautioned that the federal government has a long way to go because it lacks a coordinated effort. Nevertheless, the sheriff said, he sees a distinct change within the FBI.

In past years, he said, “there was a lot of resistance’’ to the idea that the FBI play a role in interventions, Mr. Stanek said. “This new FBI is totally different.’’

State Dept to Quadruple Number of Syrian Refugees to U.S.

Of which the majority, if not all, will be Muslims. via Number Of Syrian Refugees To U.S. Expected To Quadruple – Breitbart.

The State Department is anticipating that the U.S. will admit up to 8,000 Syrian refugees in Fiscal Year 2016.

In written responses to the Senate Judiciary Immigration and the National Interest Subcommittee Republicans obtained by Breitbart News, the State Department reveals that it is expecting the U.S. will accelerate its acceptance of Syrian refugees next year.

“As of July 30, the United States has admitted 1,042 Syrian refugees in FY 2015 and anticipates admitting a total of 1,500-1,800 Syrians this fiscal year. We anticipate admitting 5,000-8,000 Syrian refugees in FY 2016,” the State Department wrote.

The Obama administration’s effort to resettle thousands of Syrian refugees into the U.S. has come under fire as a potential national security risk.

As Breitbart News has reported, House Homeland Security Chairman Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) has pressed the administration on the possibility that foreign fighters could use the program to gain entry to the U.S.

“There is a real risk that individuals associated with terrorist groups will attempt to exploit the refugee resettlement program in order to gain entry into our country. Terrorist networks are constantly probing our defenses and would not hesitate to manipulate a program meant to save those fleeing violence for the purpose of infiltrating operatives onto American soil,” McCaul wrote in a letter to Obama in June.

In written answers to the immigration subcommittee, the State Department acknowledged that it could not, with 100 percent certainly, say that ISIS or other terror organizations would not be admitted in the process but said its current screening efforts have been successful in the past.

Earlier this month,

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the chairman of the immigration subcommittee, and

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) pressed the Obama administration on the connection between recent terrorist activity in the U.S. and immigration. The pair are seeking the immigration histories of 72 individuals involved or linked to terrorist activity — at least 26 of who they said are known to have been foreign-born, including a couple refugees.


FYI: The US is Drowning in Refugees! (Muslim Refugees!)

Immigration – legal, illegal and refugee resettlement is THE issue of the 2016 election. The only issue that matters. Vote in our poll.

280 Muslim Delegates Lobby Congress on Historic First National Muslim Advocacy Day

In the first-ever National Muslim Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C., over 280 delegates gathered from more than 20 states to meet with elected officials and congressional staffers. The US Council of Muslim Organizations, a coalition of leading national and local American Muslim organizations, sponsored the historic event.


No member of Congress should be meeting with the terror-linked, terror-named, unindicted co-conspirator to the largest terror finance conviction in U.S. history, who have had many members arrested and deported for terror offenses.

The USCMO is just an umbrella group of Muslim Brotherhood-linked organizations led by the sharia and jihad-approving CAIR, as we noted in, Newly Formed Muslim (Brotherhood) Coalition Seeks Greater Clout in U.S. Elections.

Obama admin sides with Palestinian terrorists in trial won by American victims of Islamic terror

via U.S. Requests Lower Bond for Palestinian Appeal of Terror Case – The New York Times.

The Obama administration, citing the potential for economic and political harm to the Palestinian Authority and the broader peace process, asked a judge on Monday to “carefully consider” the size of the bond he requires for the authority to appeal a huge damages award for its role in six terrorist attacks in Israel that killed and injured Americans.

The Palestinian Authority and the Palestine Liberation Organization were found liable in the attacks after a lengthy civil trial in Manhattan that ended in February. The antiterrorism law under which the case was brought provided for the tripling of the jury’s award of $218.5 million, leading to a total of $655.5 million.

The plaintiffs included 10 families, comprising about three dozen members, eight of whom suffered physical injuries in the attacks, which occurred from 2002 to 2004.

The filing also included a declaration by Antony J. Blinken, the deputy secretary of state, elaborating on the government’s concerns about the impact of requiring a high bond. Depriving the Palestinian Authority of “a significant portion of its revenues would likely severely compromise the P.A.’s ability to operate as a governmental authority,” he wrote.

“A P.A. insolvency and collapse would harm current and future U.S.-led efforts to achieve a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” he added.

The State Department had argued that the Palestinian Authority, which has faced financial problems for years, could not afford to pay the bond without jeopardizing vital government services. And as a diplomatic matter, the United States has seen a viable Palestinian Authority as essential to maintaining stability in the region.

More: Terror victims’ families blast feds for intervening in court case

Attorneys for 11 American families who won a potential billion-dollar judgment against the Palestinian leadership, which a federal jury blamed for a string of deadly terror attacks, say the U.S. government took the side of terrorists when it weighed in on the case Monday.

The State and Justice departments filed a “statement of interest” in the case known as Sokolow v. PLO, urging U.S. District Judge George Daniels not to force the Palestinian Authority and Palestinian Liberation Organization to post bond of up to $30 million per month while it appeals the jury’s February decision. Daniels had previously said he may require the bond as “some meaningful demonstration that the defendant is ready and willing to pay the judgment.”

“The State Department should stand on the side of the American terror victims and not on the side of the Palestinian suicide bombers,” attorney Nitsana Darshan Leitner told FoxNews.com Tuesday.

The families’ legal team bitterly cites the fact that the Palestinian government continues to pay imprisoned terrorists and the families of suicide bombers as evidence it has money to meet its legal obligations.

“The State Department ignores the fact that the Palestinians continue to pay monthly payments to imprisoned terrorists and to the families of the suicide bombers, who devastated the lives of the victims in this case,” Darshan Leitner said. “If the Palestinians have the funds to continue making these payments, they certainly have the funds to post a bond.”

Best man at John Kerry’s daughter’s wedding is son of Iranian nuke negotiator

via You will NOT BELIEVE who was best man at John Kerry’s daughter’s wedding – AllenBWest.com.

You not might be aware that in 2009, the daughter of Secretary of State John Kerry, Dr. Vanessa Bradford Kerry, John Kerry’s younger daughter by his first wife, married an Iranian-American physician named Dr. Brian (Behrooz) Vala Nahed.

wedding_photp-300x180
Of course you’re not aware of it.

Reader’s of Creeping Sharia have been aware of Kerry’s Iranian family ties for several years now (see Sec of State John Kerry reveals daughter married Iranian-American with extensive ties to Iran). It gets worse though.

Brian (Behrooz) Nahed is son of Nooshin and Reza Vala Nahid of Los Angeles. Brian’s Persian birth name is “Behrooz Vala Nahid” but it is now shortened and Americanized in the media to “Brian Nahed.” At the time his engagement to Bradford Kerry, there was rarely any mention of Nahed’s Persian/Iranian ancestry, and even the official wedding announcement in the October 2009 issue of New York Times carefully avoids any reference to Dr. Nahed (Nahid)’s birthplace (which is uncommon in wedding announcements) and starts his biography from his college years.

 …d0 you think Secretary Kerry should have recused himself from the negotiations with Iran at the very outset because of his long-standing relationship to his Iranian counter-part, Mohammad Javad Zarif? Let me explain.

Zarif is the current minister of foreign affairs in the Rouhani administration and has held various significant diplomatic and cabinet posts since the 1990s. He was Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations.

 Secretary Kerry and Zarif first met over a decade ago at a dinner party hosted by George Soros at his Manhattan penthouse. What a surprise. I have to say, connecting the dots gets more and more frightening.

 But it gets even worse. Guess who was the best man at the 2009 wedding between Kerry’s daughter Vanessa and Behrouz Vala Nahed? Javad Zarif’s son.

 Does this bother anyone at all?

 Apparently Kerry only revealed his daughter’s marriage to an Iranian-American once he had taken over as Secretary of State. But the subject never came up in his Senate confirmation hearing, either because Kerry never disclosed it, or because his former colleagues were “too polite” to bring it up.


 More via Is John Kerry representing America or Iran?:

Some Iranian-Americans believe that Secretary Kerry should have recused himself from the negotiations at the very outset because of his long-standing relationship to his Iranian counter-part, Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Essentially, what Motaghi said is that Secretary Kerry is working as an agent of Iran and has been arm-twisting reluctant allies, such as the French, into accepting what they know is a bad deal.

Obama was forced to order flags lowered in honor of Tennessee jihad victims

Leading from behind as usual. via Obama orders flags lowered to honor Tennessee victims, after criticism. Or as Pamela Geller wrote, he was shamed into it. Obama has no shame. He has no conscience. He is intentional in everything he does and does not do. Who will stop him?

President Obama has ordered that flags be lowered to half-staff at the White House and federal buildings across the country to honor the victims of last week’s shooting rampage in Chattanooga, Tenn., after facing pressure from lawmakers and others.

In a proclamation issued early Tuesday afternoon, Obama said of the Chattanooga victims, “We honor their service. We offer our gratitude to the police officers and first responders who stopped the rampage and saved lives. We draw strength from yet another American community that has come together with an unmistakable message to those who would try and do us harm: We do not give in to fear. You cannot divide us. And you will not change our way of life.”

He ordered flags flown at half-staff at the White House and “all public buildings and grounds,” as well as over military posts and naval stations and vessels — until July 25. Flags will be flown at half-staff at U.S. embassies and other overseas diplomatic offices.

The decision comes after congressional leaders ordered flags at the U.S. Capitol lowered to half-staff earlier in the day — that decision fueled questions over why the White House hadn’t yet done the same.

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., a veteran, earlier released a statement calling it “unconscionable” that the flags had not been lowered, as of Tuesday morning. “The flag and all it represents is sacred to our military, and the President must know that lowering the flag is a signal of honor and respect,” he said.

Shortly afterward, the White House issued its proclamation, following similar instructions for the Capitol by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner.

 “Last week, five brave service members were murdered in a terror attack in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Out of respect for their courageous service and sacrifice to our nation, flags at the U.S. Capitol are being lowered to half-staff,” Boehner said in a statement.
