New York: Muslim college student killed waging jihad for Islamic State

Once again destroying the myth that Muslim terrorists are poor, uneducated souls who are lacking opportunities. This Muslim jihadist was attending college…in pricey Manhattan. The media apparently won’t reveal what college he attended (was he an MSA member?) or his immigration status.

— A 2008 Goshen High School graduate killed fighting for the Islamic State group in Syria made a video trying to clear the name of an Arizona man who was charged with helping him join, prosecutors said.

The 24-year-old student’s November death was revealed in papers filed Monday and Tuesday in Manhattan federal court. The student was identified in court papers as Samy El-Goarany.

The Arizona man, Ahmed Mohammed el Gammal, who’s accused of helping the student travel to Syria and receive military and religious-style training, was arrested last year and has pleaded not guilty. His lawyers said the video is unreliable and “overly prejudicial” and should be precluded from a trial scheduled for December.

Prosecutors say El-Goarany left his parents’ home in Middletown, New York, in January 2015, telling them he was returning to his Manhattan college. Instead, the government said, he flew to Turkey and then Syria.

Reached by phone, El-Goarany’s father said the family didn’t wish to speak. Court papers did not identify El-Goarany’s college.

Prosecutors said an unidentified person contacted a relative in November to say El-Goarany was killed fighting in Syria. The person provided photographs of a handwritten note in which the student said, “If you’re reading this then know that I’ve been killed in battle,” prosecutors said.

The government also said it had found a YouTube video in which El-Goarany, clad in military fatigues, said on Sept. 8, 2015, two weeks after el Gammal’s arrest, that he was in the “Islamic State.”

Prosecutors said El-Goarany claimed in the video in an “unabashed effort to falsely exculpate el Gammal — that no one assisted him in traveling to Syria, including ‘Ahmed Mohammed El Gammal.”‘

Prosecutors argued in the court papers that the video should be admissible at trial to show El-Goarany went to Syria to join the Islamic State group and that he and his co-conspirators took extensive measures to maintain secrecy in the group’s methods for recruiting personnel and helping recruits travel.

El-Goarany’s lawyers said in court papers that the video depicts their client sitting on a mat in a sparsely decorated room. They say he states his name, explains he is a U.S. citizen “currently residing in the Islamic State” and says el Gammal did not assist him in his travels.

The lawyers said the video should not be shown to jurors because it “constitutes inadmissible hearsay.”

“Additionally, the entire video should be precluded as overly prejudicial,” they wrote, noting that El-Goarany is unavailable to testify at el Gammal’s trial and cannot further explain how el Gammal did not facilitate his travel.

The defense lawyers also challenged the admissibility of El-Goarany’s handwritten note, saying claims of his death were “unreliable,” especially since he had written to his brother weeks earlier to say he might have to fall out of contact because he was being monitored.

“It is not beyond the stretch of the imagination that the letter was written so that El-Goarany could ‘disappear,”‘ the lawyers wrote.

According to The Chronicle archives, Samy M. El-Goarany graduated in 2008 with a Regent’s Diploma.

The lawyer makes a good point, he may not be dead and if not, may attempt to come back into the U.S. at any time as a Syrian “refugee.”

This image may go down in history as one of the emblematic moments of the Islamization of Europe.

The photo dates from 30 October 2014. Show girls and boys of primary school Vinkenbuurt, native Dutch blond lying prostrate to pray to Allah in Ghulzar-e-Madina mosque in Zwolle, the capital of the province of Overijssel, in the east-central area of ‘Holland.

The imam probably had them recite the shahada, meaning, in the eyes of Muslims that these kids are now…

Connecticut: Jordanian national crashes plane near military jet-engine manufacturer; likely intentional says NTSB


Source: NTSB: Deadly Conn. plane crash was likely intentional – CBS News h/t TFI

The deadly crash of a small plane that struck a utility pole near the Connecticut River in East Hartford appears to have been intentional, according to investigators and the surviving witness.

In a statement Tuesday afternoon, the National Transportation Safety Board announced it had turned over the investigation of the crash to the FBI because their probe so far “indicates the crash is the result of an intentional act.”

Police said there were two sets of controls aboard a small plane that crashed in Connecticut with a flight instructor and student on board, killing one of them.

The instructor pilot survived, but remains hospitalized with serious burns. Two people in a minivan were also taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

East Hartford police Lt. Joshua Litwin told reporters Wednesday that he didn’t know who was controlling the plane when it crashed on a road.

East Hartford Mayor Marcia Leclerc said Wednesday that the survivor of the crash near a military jet-engine manufacturer told authorities that it was intentional. Leclerc cautioned that the information has not been confirmed.

East Hartford police asked the FBI to assist the investigation because it happened near Pratt & Whitney, which makes military and commercial jet engines. Chief Scott Sansom called the jet engine maker “critical infrastructure.”

“The path that the plane took could have been much worse. So we’re very fortunate in that sense,” Sansom said.

One of the men on the plane, Feras M. Freitekh, is a Jordanian national who first entered the U.S. in 2012 on a temporary student M1 visa to fulfill a course of study for flight school, CBS News has learned. At some point his status changed to anF1 visa, and he went to a language school in Toledo, Ohio. It then went back to an M1 visa.

The Hartford Courant reports that the Cessna took off from Hartford’s Brainard Airport on Tuesday with a student pilot and an instructor on board. It struck a utility pole in East Hartford and crashed around 4 p.m., bursting into flames.

The Piper PA 34 twin-engine plane crashed on Main Street in East Hartford at around 3:30 p.m., according to the deputy police chief. Main Street was shut down between Brown Street and Ensign Street. Drivers were being asked to avoid the area, CBS affiliate WFSB reports.

Police said Main Street will be closed between Willow Street Extension and Ensign Street until further notice.

Two people were in a nearby car when the plane crashed on Main Street, police said. Authorities said the car occupants were traumatized from the crash and were taken to the hospital. The car they were in was never hit by the plane.

Officials said the plane originated from a local flight school. The Federal Aviation Administration said the aircraft was on final approach to a runway at Brainard Airport.

On Tuesday evening, police said the surviving occupant of the plane is expected to survive. He is awake and speaking with investigators.

“As far as the occupants of the plane, he is expected to survive. He is cooperating with investigators he’s actually speaking with detectives as part of this investigation as ongoing,” said East Hartford Police Lt. Josh Litwin.

Fifteen years after 9/11 and the powers that be are still allowing Muslims to come into the U.S. for flight training. Another aspect of immigration policy that is wholly corrupted and must be halted.

Expect this story to change shortly to mental instability, prescription drugs, Islamophobia, pure coincidence, the survivor recants, never said it or can’t remember…or doesn’t survive. Anything but Islam.

Update: Nothing to see here, cousin says he’s not religious and governor warns citizens not to jump to conclusions. Run along.

A high-ranking local law enforcement official said Wednesday that the student pilot and instructor were arguing shortly before the crash, which killed the student and left the instructor injured.

Another source said the student pilot started flying the plane erratically and the instructor fought to gain control before the crash. The source said the student was distraught and feeling stressed over his poor performance at the flight academy.

Public records show Freitekh address as being in Orland Hills, Ill. since April 2013. He has a license to fly a single-engine plane. Federal Aviation Administration records show he was issued a private pilot certificate on May 29, 2015. On his Facebook page he spells his name, Rafael Majdi Feritekh.

Freitekh only received mail at the Orland Hills address and had never lived there, Orland Hills Police Chief Tom Scully said at a news conference Wednesday evening, according to the Chicago Tribune. His father also had not been to the Orland Hills address, Scully said

A man from Amman who identified himself as a cousin of Freitekh’s, contacted through Facebook, said Freitekh’s dream was to become a pilot, and that’s why he came to the United States.

“He was a good person, kind and helpful,” said the cousin, who did not want to be identified by name. “He wasn’t religious at all. He was open-minded.”

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy warned Wednesday that the public should not jump to conclusions about the reasons for the crash.

“As a nation, we have all had to adjust to a new reality,” Malloy told reporters at the Capitol. “When events such as this occur, we recognize that people almost automatically wonder if someone meant to do us harm. But we must exercise caution about jumping to conclusions before discovering and considering all of the facts.”

What new reality does Dannel Malloy want Americans to adjust to? Muslim immigrants that kill Americans? Another elected official failing to uphold his oath.

We’re told there are foreign Muslims in other flight schools across the U.S. including the Epic Flight Academy in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.

Canada: Students stop Saudi Muslim from beheading woman in UBC dorm

Source: ‘I put him in a chokehold’: Students stopped attack in UBC dorm | CTV Vancouver News

A Good Samaritan who interrupted a violent attack at a University of British Columbia dormitory is crediting his martial arts training for his quick actions that led to the suspect’s arrest.

Adam Casey, an engineering student at the school, said he ran up the stairs after witnesses ran out of the Salish House residence on Tuesday looking for help.

Witnesses said they saw a male student holding down a young woman with a knife to her throat. Her neck was partially cut when they ran through the open door.

“I tried to get his hands off of her neck but he was holding quite tightly,” Casey told CTV News.

“I had to go to him and put him in a chokehold.”

Casey said he acted without thinking, something he credits to years of martial arts training.

Luka Berg, who arrived at the scene of the attack a short time after Casey, said the incident was “pretty traumatizing.”

Police were called to the scene, and arrived a short time later to find a suspect detained by Casey and other students.

On Wednesday, officers announced that charges had been laid against an 18-year-old in connection with the frightening attack.

Court records show counts of attempted murder, aggravated assault and assault with a weapon have all been approved against Thamer Hameed Almestadi, one day after the assault that left some on campus feeling uneasy.

The victim, a first-year student, was rushed to hospital where she is expected to recover from non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators with the RCMP’s university detachment haven’t verified the details of witness accounts provided to CTV News, but did confirm that the attack occurred at Salish House around 11:30 a.m.

Police said the attack was not random, and that the victim and suspect know each other.

Friends of the suspect and the victim told CTV News both are first-year students who lived inside the residence where the crime occurred, but they aren’t known to be acquaintances. It is believed that the victim lived on the third floor, and the suspect lived on the fourth.

The suspect is an international student from Saudi Arabia, and was studying engineering. He has been banned from the campus following the charges, and remains in police custody.

Following the attack on Wednesday, some students said the assault made them nervous about living on campus.

“Before this, I definitely felt safe all over campus, I had no concerns,” one student told CTV News.

“Obviously on campus you always want to do what you can to be safe but I had felt very safe. Now this makes me question it.”

Another student said she always travels as part of a group, and if she is going anywhere alone she uses UBC Safewalk, a free service that will assign someone to accompany people who feel unsafe walking alone on campus.

In a statement, Sgt. Annie Linteau said the “E” Division Major Crimes Unit is helping to investigate and the public is not at risk.

Tennessee: Another parent finds Islamic indoctrination in curriculum, wants textbook change (video)

Source: Sullivan County parent complains about Islam curriculum, wants textbook change | WJHL

SULLIVAN COUNTY, TN (WJHL)- A Sullivan County mother, upset about the way Islam is taught in her child’s school took her concerns to the board of education Monday night.

Michelle Edmisten was the only parent to speak during public comment about how Islam is being taught in schools.

She pleaded with the board asking for an immediate change.


“It is time as parents, teachers, and administrators we stand up and take back our families, our schools, and our country,” Edmisten said.

Edmisten said her daughter just finished the Islam unit, and felt some of the assignments went against her beliefs as a Christian.

She said her daughter refused to complete some of the assignments regarding Islam because of those beliefs, and as a result failed several of those assignments.

Monday night, she asked board members to change the curriculum.

“I would like to see the Pearson book yanked from the school immediately. I would like to see parents, Christians, veterans, anyone that’s anyone, stand up for this fight. How can I, as a Christian, say that I have these values? And I want to instill these values in my daughter, but then say its okay go ahead and do it,” Edmisten said.

Board of Education members listened, but said changing a textbook involves a process.

Board of Education Chair, Michael Hughes, said the state of Tennessee currently is reviewing the way Social Studies is taught.

“Its not like we have the option to get rid of the book, and get a book that don’t have those standards, so then the question becomes, can we find a textbook that is that much different, and is it worth it,” Edmisten said.

One board member, Mark Ireson, did make a last-minute motion at the end of the meeting to remove the textbook.

Director of Schools Evelyn Rafalowski said there is a protocol to follow, and no timeline was set on when they will take up that discussion again.

A public comment period is underway on the state’s draft for the new social study curriculum.

You have the chance to comment on the proposed changes until October 28th.

The question all parents should be asking is, if it’s so hard and time consuming to get the Islamic propaganda out of the curriculum then how – and who was responsible – for putting in the curriculum. The answer is supremacist Muslims who infiltrate school boards, corporations, etc. and they’ve been working on the sharia agenda for a long time. Continue reading

California Passes Bill Giving Muslims Special Protections (aka Sharia Law)

Muslims supremacists have again succeeding in elevating themselves above all others in America. Just like in Kansas City and New York. Plague-like.

Taxpayers will fund this effort. Source: California Gov. Signs Law to Address Muslim, Sikh, South Asian American Bullying – NBC News

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed new legislation last week aimed at giving students a safer school environment, according to his office.

Bill AB-2845, also known as the “Safe Place to Learn Act,” seeks to address bullying of South Asian, Muslim-, and Sikh-American students as well as those mistaken to belong to those groups by providing school staff with school-site and community resources as well as require the superintendent of public instruction to publish anti-bullying resources related to religious and perceived religious affiliation on its website, according to Asian-Americans Advancing Justice — California (AAAJ-CA), one of the organizations behind the law.

The law was sponsored by Assemblymember Das Williams (D-37) and developed in collaboration with The Sikh Coalition, the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund (SALDEF), AAAJ-CA, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

“This is a landmark bill for California that will curb bullying and discrimination in the classroom,” Harjit Kaur, community development manager for The Sikh Coalition, told NBC News. “AB 2845 ensures the right of every child to practice his/her faith freely in public schools. We look forward to implementing this bill and engaging with communities and schools across California to address bullying and discrimination in the classroom.”

The bill passed unanimously in the California Assembly 79 to 0 and passed 34 to 3 in the California Senate.

Comment from the terrorist-named Muslim organization CAIR removed.

Suffice it to say they dragged along (or propped up) the Sikhs, whom would normally be a target of jihadists outside the US just like all other non-Muslims.

American students – if you question Islam, speak ill of Islam or are merely accused of looking at a Muslim funny – you will go to jail in California. That is sharia law.

The NYPD Intelligence Division & Counter-Terrorism Bureau are seeking to speak with a woman that was caught on surveillance video taking pictures of a Jewish school in borough park.

The incident took place last week on Thursday afternoon at approximately 2:30 p.m. The woman, dressed like a Muslim, showed up at the Yeshiva Imeri Yosef Spinka school located at 15th avenue and 58th street. She proceeded to take photos and look around all sides of the building as if  to spy and stake out the place.

The school’s surveillance video was handed over to the NYPD.

Investigators from the Intelligence Division are now reviewing the video, NYPD officials told JP.

“If you see something suspicious you need to report it immediately to 911,”  Councilman David Greenfield said upon learning about this incident.

“Better safe than sorry,” he continued,”I’m pleased that the NYPD Intelligence Division is actively investigating this situation.”

“We’re fortunate to have the best police department in the world,” Greenfield added.
