Source: FFA – Florida Department of Law Enforcement affirms agency leads counter terrorism efforts in Florida. FFA asks if Florida will give Omar Mateen’s wife, Noor Salman, a pass as it appears the feds are doing.

In  the  aftermath  of the terrorist attack in Orlando,  Florida Family Association sent an email letter to Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Richard L. Swearingen on June 29, 2016.  The letter requested information regarding their statutorily mandated leadership role in counter terrorism efforts in Florida.  The FDLE did not respond so Florida Family Association sent a second letter on July 12, 2016.

FDLE Commissioner Richard L. Swearingen responded in a letter dated August 10, 2016 that was mailed on August 17, 2016.  His letter affirms the agency’s leadership role and explains their partnership with local law enforcement agencies.  While it is encouraging to know that the FDLE takes this leadership role the letter does not mention  whether  they  yield  to  the  FBI  in true leadership.

Florida Family Association wrote a follow up letter on August 29, 2016 to Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Richard L. Swearingen.  This letter asked the FDLE if Florida will give Omar   Mateen’s   wife,  Noor  Salman,  a pass as it appears the Obama administration is doing.

Florida Family Association follow up letter on August 29, 2016:

Dear Commissioner Swearingen,

Thank you for your letter dated August 10, 2016 which explains the efforts to combat terrorism in Florida.  It is encouraging to know that the FDLE is taking the lead to investigate terrorism given the FBI’s harmful restrictions on investigating mosques and Muslims.

Many people have expressed concern that Omar Mateen’s wife, Noor Salman, left the area and is no longer being investigated.  Based upon comments made   by   Attorney  General  Loretta  Lynch,  it appears that the FBI does not know of her whereabouts.  Additionally, a DOJ online post reported that a grand jury was established immediately after the Orlando attack to look into Noor Salman’s involvement.  However, that post is no longer there.

Noor Salman admitted involvement and knowledge of the attack in Orlando.  However, it appears that the federal government is giving her a pass.

Is the FDLE going to fill the void in Noor Salman’s investigation or will she go free sending a dangerous message to future would be terrorists and accomplices?

Sincerely,
David Caton, President
Florida Family Association, Inc.

Florida Family Association plans to follow up again with the FDLE regarding Noor Salman. A new campaign may be launched to urge action on this issue.  Hopefully, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will not play the games that the United States Department  of Justice appears to be playing      regarding    a     vigorous,    unbridled investigation of the Orlando terrorist attack and Noor Salman’s involvement with Omar Mateen.

Florida Family Association invites you to comment on the FDLE commissioner’s letter or any part of this issue.  Please send comments, suggestions and questions to davidcaton@floridafamily.org.


Read it all for the Florida DLE’s lame response that avoided the question.

Florida: Pensacola Muslim charged after supporting ISIS

An October trial date has been set for a Pensacola man charged with lying to federal agents who were investigating his alleged support of the Islamic State.

Robert Blake Jackson, 31, was arraigned Wednesday morning on one count of making materially false statements in a federal investigation. Jackson has pleaded not guilty to the charge, and he has been scheduled to stand trial Oct. 3.

A criminal complaint affidavit alleges that on several occasions in 2014 and 2015, Jackson made Facebook postings expressing support for extremist terrorist groups and stating a desire to assist the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS or ISIL). The affidavit also alleges Jackson was fired from a Pensacola telemarketing business for viewing ISIL and other terrorist-related websites and videos on his work computer.

Jackson denied the activities in a June 2015 interview with FBI agents, but investigators were allegedly able to tie the pro-ISIS posts to Jackson’s home computer. Jackson was arrested in July 2016.

In an argument for Jackson’s release, his attorney pointed out that Jackson had little prior criminal history. Jackson’s counsel also noted he had no actual affiliation with ISIL, and his statements represented “some strange fantasy.”

U.S. Magistrate Judge Charles J. Kahn Jr., ultimately determined Jackson was a danger to the community and ordered he remain in custody pending his trial — noting that “lone wolf” terrorist attacks had become the norm, and that Jackson allegedly expressed a desire to see Jews and Americans burn in “hellfire.”

In his detention order, Kahn wrote, “During the course of the June 2015 FBI interview, the defendant told serial falsehoods having been advised of the consequences. Although he is charged with (false statement), I cannot overlook the substance and quantity of the online statements made by the defendant. A number of these statements condone, at best, and encourage, at worst, violence toward those he perceives as opponents of ISIS. I also cannot overlook the defendant’s expressions that he would like to be of assistance, or even be part of, known terror organizations.”

Jackson faces up to five years in federal prison if convicted of making false statements. Assistant United States Attorney David L. Goldberg is prosecuting the case, and Thomas Keith will provide Jackson’s defense.


More:

According to Jackson’s warrant affidavit, the FBI’s San Diego Division began reviewing the Facebook profile of “Abdur Rashid Bin Jackson” in early October 2014 after becoming aware of pro-ISIL posts.

On Sept. 19, 2014, the user posted a picture of the ISIL flag and an ISIL recruitment video. Another Facebook user posted the question “Are you isis?” to which Abdur Rashid Bin Jackson replied, “… l am not ISIS, though I wish I could help.”

Other information on the Facebook page indicated Jackson lived in Pensacola, and on Jan. 29, 2015, a local telemarketing business reported they had fired Jackson for viewing terrorism-related websites and videos on his work computer, the affidavit said.

Palm Beach: Supervisor of Elections Held Secret Meetings with Muslims, Dems on Terror Mosque Voting Location

An update on this post. via: The United West: Boca Raton Mosque – Too Extreme for Palm Beach Voting Location

In the midst of this controversy it was discovered that in early 2016, Susan Bucher, Supervisor of Elections of Palm Beach Co., FL in collaboration with ICBR President Bassem Alhalabi selected the Islamic Center of Boca Raton as a polling center for the upcoming 2016 presidential election.

However, public outcry forced Bucher to select an alternative voting location for the upcoming 2016 election season.

As the public outcry led to media coverage, Bucher and AlHalabi organized a meeting on July 19 that was held at the ICBR.  In attendance were a cross-section of liberal and progressive political leaders that included ACLU of Florida President Mark Schneider, J-Street Regional Director Scott Brockman, Emerge USA/FL chairman Suhail Nanji, Chairman, Boca Raton City Councilman Jeremy Rodgers and American Muslim Democratic Caucus regional director Kashif Mohammad.

The purpose of the meeting was to insure that the ICBR would be a voting location in a future election cycle in Palm Beach Co. if Bucher is reelected in 2016.

The ICBR, a well-known Islamic extremist mosque, has promoted organizations calling for the “Killing of Jews” and has informed its members on “How Can I Train Myself for Jihad.”

TheUnitedWest.org presents incontrovertible evidence of the ICBR’s Jihadist support, Jew Hatred, and radical Islamic ties in the following exposé titled, “BUSTED: Boca Raton Mosque, too extreme for Palm Beach Voting location!”


 Update: We were informed that Bucher was up for re-election on August 30 and won easily. Expect many more secret meetings among Muslims and much more Islamization in Palm Beach County.

Florida: Father of Muslim Terrorist Who Killed 49 People, is Big Suporter at Hillary Clinton Rally!

KISSIMMEE, Fla. – Hillary Clinton spoke to a crowd in Kissimmee, just south of Orlando.  She was supposed to be talking jobs, but started the speech off paying tribute to those affected by the Pulse Nightclub shooting.

“I know how many people, families, loved ones, and friends are still grieving, and we will be with you as you rebuild your lives.”

WPTV happened to notice the man, who has a mustache and was wearing a red hat, behind Clinton. It was Seddique Mateen, the father of Orlando mass shooter Omar Mateen.

NewsChannel 5 asked Mateen what he was thinking about when Clinton spoke about the Orlando incident.

“We’ve been cooperating with the federal government, and that’s about it,” he said. “Thank you.”  Mateen didn’t want to answer any other questions, but just hours later, we ran into him by chance at a rest stop on the way back to West Palm Beach.  He wanted to do an interview and show us a sign he made for Clinton.


Sure, all by chance.

Rumor has it that The Florida DNC sent a rally invitation to the father of the Orlando Pulse Nightclub Terrorist. And they placed him in a photo-friendly line of site.

Florida: Fort Pierce Mosque’s Terror-Related Past and Present

Syed Shafeeq Ur Rahman, imam of the Islamic Center of Fort Pierce (ICFP), claims that his mosque – the same mosque where Orlando terrorist shooter Omar Mateen regularly prayed at – condemns radical Islam. But if that is so, then why, following the shooting, would the mosque retain a spokesman who is a leader from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group that has numerous associations with the terrorist organization Hamas?

The Islamic Center of Fort Pierce or Masjid Subul-as-Salam was incorporated in September 2003. Its founder was Shafeeq Rahman. Today, Rahman is the mosque’s imam and president. The mosque is a converted church, located at 1104 West Midway Road and owned by Azaan, Inc., a Florida business run by the mosque’s Secretary and Treasurer, Imtiaz Jehan Khan.

Weeks ago, the mosque made the news, following the murders of 49 innocent people at Orlando’s Pulse LGBT nightclub by one of the mosque’s congregants. This had been the second large scale terrorist attack linked to the mosque in as many years.

The first was a suicide attack carried out in Syria by then 22-year-old Palestinian-American Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha, aka Abu Hurayra al-Amriki. Abu-Salha was a follower of deceased Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaeda leader who died via a US drone strike in September 2011. Abu-Salha had flown from the US to Turkey and made his way over the border into Syria, soon to join up with al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front.

In May 2014, Abu-Salha, as a member of al-Nusra, drove a massive truck bomb into a restaurant in Jabal al-Arbaeen filled with Syrian government soldiers. This was said to be the first suicide bombing performed by an American within Syria.

The second attack associated with ICFP took place on June 12th, when Omar Mir Seddique Mateen, also an admirer of al-Awlaki, entered the Pulse in Orlando and shot and killed 49 people and injured 53 more. During the attack, Mateen placed a call to 911 to claim responsibility for the attack and pledge his allegiance to the leader of ISIS. He stated, “I pledge… allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi of the Islamic State.” He, as well, expressed his solidarity with those who carried out the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and Abu-Salha, who perpetrated the Syria suicide attack.

Both Abu-Salha and Mateen were acquaintances and members of the Fort Pierce mosque. Reports state that the two were in regular communication with one another. Although the imam Shafeeq Rahman has claimed that Mateen hardly ever came to the mosque’s Friday services, Mateen was a regular attendee on Fridays. Indeed, Mateen was at the mosque with his father only two nights prior to the shooting attack. Continue reading

Florida: Three Muslims in Palm Beach County charged with helping ISIS

West Palm Beach residents Gregory Hubbard, also known as Jibreel, 52 and Darren Arness Jackson, also known as Daoud, 50, were charged along with Dayne Atani Christian, 31, of Lake Park, known as Shakur, were charged with knowingly conspiring and attempting provide material support and resources to ISIS.

Federal Investigators say the three men from Palm Beach County who conspired to work with the Islamic state supported the mass shootings in Orlando and planned to go to Syria to join the terrorist group.

Gregory Hubbard regularly spoke about his support of terrorist attacks like the mass shootings in San Bernardino and Orlando and introduced Christian to Darren Jackson, the third man arrested.

When Hubbard introduced Christian to Jackson, the three went to a local shooting range for target practice. The specific range was not named. The men used automatic rifles at the range, a criminal complaint made public Friday said.

The men will face a detention hearing on July 27 and an arraignment on Aug 5.


From the DOJ press release:

“According to the complaint, these defendants conspired and attempted to provide material support to ISIL and one of the defendants was arrested attempting to travel overseas to join and fight for the deadly terrorist organization,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin.

According to the allegations contained in the complaint, Hubbard expressed support for ISIL and told an FBI confidential human source (CHS) that he wanted to travel to Syria and join ISIL for the purpose of engaging in violent jihad.  Hubbard introduced the CHS to Christian and Jackson, both of whom provided weapons and firearms instruction to Hubbard and the CHS, whom they understood were preparing to travel overseas to join and fight for ISIL.

The complaint further alleges that Jackson and Christian also expressed a desire to join ISIL.  Hubbard purchased an airplane ticket to Germany, where he planned to board a train to Turkey and then head to Syria.  Hubbard was arrested on July 21, 2016, at Miami International Airport prior to the first leg of his overseas trip.  Jackson, who had driven Hubbard to the airport, was arrested after he left the airport premises.  Christian was arrested at his place of work.

If convicted, the defendants face a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for the material support charge.  Christian faces a statutory maximum sentence of 10 years in prison if convicted on the charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Florida: Muslim convert charged with attempt to bomb Aventura synagogue

James Muhammad

An update on an earlier arrest, via: Muslim convert charged with attempt to bomb Jewish synagogue in Florida  h/t thereligionofpeace.com

A Florida man has been charged with attempting to damage a Jewish synagogue in addition to his previous indictment of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction against a person or property.

The new charge was filed against James Gonzalo Medina, 40, of Hollywood, Florida, on June 30 following an initial charge on May 2 of targeting the Aventura-Turnberry Jewish Center in Aventura, Florida.

If convicted, Medina faces life imprisonment.

His arrest was made through an undercover operation of the South Florida Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF).

Medina is accused of attempting to use an explosive device to destroy the synagogue.

Using confidential human source, the FBI was able to determine Medina’s plan where he expressed anti-Semitic views and identified the synagogue as his target.

The complaint said Medina wanted to use an explosive device to commit the attack. Medina allegedly studied the synagogue property to assess how he would carry out the attack.

Last April 29, Medina was caught in possession of an explosive device and was arrested while approaching the centre.

During his court appearance last May, the suspect told U.S. magistrate Judge William Turnoff, “I’ve got a few words of my own. … My name is James Medina, also known as James Muhammad,” according to the Sun Sentinel.

Prosecutor Marc Anton told the court that Medina had “interest in conducting an attack” on the synagogue by “obtaining a bomb he could either place under a car or throw it over the wall.”

Medina told investigators that he converted to Islam about four years and that he wanted the attack to look like it was done by the Islamic State or ISIS.

The suspect also told acquaintances that he wanted to make himself a “martyr” though the attack.

Medina also recorded videos to say goodbye to his family and make threats.

“I am a Muslim and I don’t like what is going on in this world. I’m going to handle business here in America. Aventura, watch your back. ISIS is in the house,” the agents quoted Medina as saying in one video.
