Chicago: Imam gets probation for molesting underage girl, female employee

This filthy old imam pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting an underage girl, an adult woman, has been accused by potentially 4-6 other females; he fled the country when the charges became public and he avoids jail time?

A suburban Islamic leader accused of molesting an underage girl and a female employee pleaded guilty Thursday afternoon and was sentenced to 24 months probation.

Mohammed Abdullah Saleem, 77, who founded the Institute for Islamic Education in Elgin, must also register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. In addition, he is forbidden to be in the presence of females of any age, except relatives, without another adult female present. He also cannot be within 500 feet of any school — including the one he founded 27 years ago, except to worship at its affiliated mosque.

“Mr. Saleem thought it would be in the best interest of the Islamic community to accept the plea agreement and avoid a trial,” his lawyer, Donna Rotunno, said following the hearing.

Saleem was accused of repeatedly fondling a young woman who worked for him at the school, as well as a student who was a minor at the time, in some cases while forcing them sit on his lap. Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Jaclyn Lantz said the student was 14 when Saleem began to abuse her in 2001. The following year, the girl reported the abuse to a school official, “but nothing happened,” Lantz said.

No one at the school could be reached for comment Thursday. Continue reading

Illinois Governor Poised to Approve 21-Member Muslim Advisory Council?

Are there Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Atheist, etc. advisory councils? Source: Illinois Measure Would Create Advisory Council for Muslims – ABC News  h/t TROP

Illinois could become the first state in the U.S. with a law giving Muslim-Americans a formal voice in state government.

The Chicago Tribune ( ) reports that a bill approved by the Legislature would create a 21-member Illinois Muslim-American Advisory Council. It’s awaiting Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner’s signature. The governor’s office said he’s reviewing it.

Muslim leaders said it would send a welcoming message to Muslims. The governor and legislative leaders would appoint council members.

Kareem Irfan, a Chicago lawyer who led an earlier version of the council under Gov. Pat Quinn, said it would be good to have a lasting institutional body so the community is not subject to the whims of each governor.

“Given all that is going on with the misinterpretation about Islam and the interests and concerns of the Muslim-American community, it’s almost obligatory on behalf of a governor of this state and all governors to have such a body,” Irfan said.

More like hide the supremacist Islamic ideology…that frequently kills Americans.

Democratic Sen. Jacqueline Collins, a co-sponsor of the bill, said she hopes the council will be the first of many efforts to ensure that the governor considers minority perspectives.

Republican Rep. Barbara Wheeler voted against the bill last month. She said lawmakers shouldn’t be wasting their time on “feel-good” legislation when Illinois is approaching one year without a state budget.

“It’s not an anti-Muslim thing,” Wheeler said. “It’s the duty and responsibility of the Muslim-American community to figure out how to help us understand whom our enemies are. I don’t believe it’s the state of Illinois’ responsibility to do that.”

Boom. Conversely, it’s the state of Illinois’ responsibility to protect its citizens from Muslim terrorists, not allow them to infiltrate and dictate policy. Be sure the Hamas front group CAIR will be part of this group – at least one of their radical members is pictured on the existing site.

Illinois taxpayers, however, already pay for a government web page specifically for Muslims and on it there is a blatant historical lie about Thomas Jefferson. One that Barack Hussein Obama perpetuates regularly.


Governor’s “Iftar” Dinner

SPRINGFIELD – In 1805, Thomas Jefferson was the first U.S. President to observe Ramadan in the White House with a sunset dinner for Sidi Soliman Mellimelli, a Tunisian who was the first Muslim envoy to the United States.

US Muslim Leader: “Allahu Akbar…Islam Is Here to Dominate”


h/t Pamela Geller who writes:

Haitham Ibn Thbait, of the American chapter of Hizb Ut-Tahrir, is honest where most American Muslim leaders tell credulous audiences everything they want to hear. Note how neatly Ibn Thbait’s words coincide with the words of Hamas-CAIR’s co-founder, Omar Ahmad, who said: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant,” and “The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.” This is no accident or coincidence. These are two Muslim leaders who let the mask slip.

Video at the link above or via “An American Hizb Ut-Tahrir Leader Exhorts Muslims to Refrain from Voting in U.S. Elections, Says: Islam Is Here to Dominate,” MEMRI:

Haitham Ibn Thbait, of the American chapter of Hizb Ut-Tahrir, recently exhorted American Muslims to avoid falling into the “electoral trap” and called upon them not to vote in the U.S. elections, saying that getting Muslims to vote was part of an effort to assimilate them and that they had been “tricked” into voting for Clinton, Bush, and Obama in the past. Speaking at the Khilafah 2016 conference, held in Chicago on May 15, Ibn Thbait further called Obama a “terrorist” and said that “Islam is here to dominate.” The address was posted on YouTube by Hizb Ut-Tahrir on May 20.

Following are excerpts

Haitham Ibn Thbait: The Prophet said: “There is no god but Allah.” Instead the [elites of Mecca] rejected. They offered the Prophet wealth, status, and political representation – a seat on the executive branch within Mecca’s secular order – all to avoid this statement and its implications. Yet he rejected their offers and continued his journey towards radical change, providing us with step-by-step instructions on how to make this religion supreme. Continue reading

DePaul Univ’s Muslim Chaplain Supports & Has Connections to Muslim Terrorists


Source: DePaul’s Abdul-Malik Ryan Has Connections to Muslim Terrorists

Abdul-Malik Ryan is the Islamic chaplain of Chicago’s DePaul University and also serves as Assistant Director of Religious Diversity at the college’s Loop campus. He also goes by the alias “Abu Noor al-Irlandee” (“al-Irlandee” is Arabic for “the Irishman”). Ryan is not only an open supporter of Muslim terrorist groups such as ISIS and al-Qaeda, he has ties to traitor and convicted terrorist John Walker Lindh.

Abdul-Malik Ryan is an American of Irish descent who obtained his bachelor’s degree from DePaul and also attended Georgetown Law School. Prior to becoming DePaul’s Islamic chaplain, he worked as an attorney in the Cook County child protection system.

Ryan converted to Islam in 1994 when he was a student at DePaul, initially joining the Nation of Islam, the radical black nationalist organization led by Louis Farrakhan; he would later become an Orthodox Muslim. According to my contacts, prior to his conversion, Ryan also served as the president of DePaul’s Communist club, though I haven’t turned up any evidence of this so far.

Some of Abdul-Malik Ryan’s radical left-wing beliefs are well-known: according to Breitbart’s Tom Ciccotta, he has cheered on the declining white majority in America, supports cop killers, and believes that it is immoral for the U.S. to refuse to accept Syrian refugees. However, at his blog Abu Noor al-Irlandee, he has openly expressed support for Muslim terrorists who kill Americans and Europeans.

Abdul-Malik Ryan’s Terrorist Problem

On his blog, Abdul-Malik Ryan refers to himself as an “unrepentant Fenian Islamist” and posts articles supportive of Islamic terrorism. In a deleted post from 2008, he praises Anwar al-Awlaki, the leader of al-Qaeda in Yemen. Al-Awlaki was the mastermind behind the 2009 Fort Hood massacre by Nidal Hasan and the attempted Christmas day bombing of Northwest Airlines Flight 253 by “underwear bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

Ryan also heaps praise on the “Mujahideen” (guerrilla terrorists) killing American soldiers in Iraq and affirms his support for establishing an “Islamic State”:

But despite all of that, the plans of the United States are not working. The Islamic revival is continuing. The evil nature of U.S. plans are clear to most Muslims, especially the youth and especially the active practicing Muslim youth living in the U.S. itself. They plot and plan, but Allaah is the Best of Planners. In fact, the popularity and understanding of the true message of Islam continues to grow in the Muslim world and the concept of re-establishing the Islamic State, or re-establishing the Khilafah is everywhere seen as much more realistic and likely than it was even 15 years ago.

Much more, read it all. We’d post DePaul contact info but based on some of the author’s tweets they seem more likely to protect this hate preacher and defender of jihad.

Illinois: Zakat Foundation to open cultural center for Rohingya Muslims refugees


As reader’s here know, zakat funds jihad. via: Refugee Resettlement Watch

This is the news today from Illinois (hat tip: domstudent11) from The Daily Northwestern:

Home to more than 2,400 new refugees from 29 nations that migrated in the past year, residents say Illinois has historically been an open and welcoming place for asylum-seekers and immigrants alike.

“Illinois is easier to resettle because it’s so diverse,” said Suzanne Akhras Sahloul, a Syrian immigrant and founder of the Syrian Community Network. “It’s important to see people who are of different ethnic backgrounds because then that makes our transition a little bit easier.”

But following Governor Bruce Rauner’s call in November to halt the flow of Syrian refugees into Illinois and Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric on immigrants, including a proposal to temporarily bar all Muslims from entering the United States, some say the state may turn in a different direction. [Illinois is in the top five states for the resettlement of Syrian Muslims, see here.]


Rohingya Cultural Center to open in Chicago on Saturday.

In the 2015 calendar year, Syrians made up about 6 percent of all refugees in Illinois, preceded by those from the Democratic Republic of Congo at 12 percent, Iraq at almost 20 percent and Myanmar at nearly 40 percent, according to U.S. Department of State data.

The Zakat Foundation of America, an organization that provides resources for low-income communities, plans on opening a culture center just outside of Evanston this weekend. The center, which has been in the works for six months, is the latest effort by the organization to provide resources for Rohingyan refugees fleeing Myanmar.

“There are two basic things motivating the project,” said Jamie Merchant, public relations coordinator at Zakat. “The specific problems of this uniquely disadvantaged community of the Rohingya and also trying to establish a new angle for approaching the general challenges of resettlement.”

Here is what Time magazine said about Rohingya on October 14, 2002 in an article entitled, ‘Deadly Cargo’ by Alex Perry.

Today, southern Bangladesh has become a haven for hundreds of jihadis on the lam. They find natural allies in Muslim guerrillas from India hiding out across the border, and in Muslim Rohingyas, tens of thousands of whom fled the ethnic and religious suppression of the Burmese military junta in the late 1970s and 1980s. Many Rohingyas are long-term refugees, but some are trained to cause trouble back home in camps tolerated by a succession of Bangladeshi governments. The original facilities date back to 1975, making them Asia’s oldest jihadi training camps. And one former Burmese guerrilla who visits the camps regularly describes three near Ukhia, south of the town of Cox’s Bazar, as able to accommodate a force of 2,500 between them.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops is one of the major lobbying groups to push for the seeding of America with Rohingya Muslims as we reported here in 2013.

Read it all and more at RRW.

Now, Rohingya Muslims can join Syrian, Iraqi, Afghani, Jordanian/Palestinian and other Muslim invaders in the jihadi haven that is Illinois.

Illinois: Muslims take over Wheaton church, convert to mosque

Illinois: Mosque takes over former Wheaton church

Illinois: Terror-named Muslim org converting Palos Park church into a mosque

An anonymous flier circulated in mailboxes and online this month decried plans to open a mosque and community center at the site of a former church in this southwest suburb, roughly a mile from the home of 72-year-old Omar Najib, who intends to pray there.

The Muslim American Society bought the property at 12300 S. 80th Ave. in December and plans to do minor maintenance at the site, with no opening day scheduled yet. The leaflet titled “Save Palos” accused the house of worship of threatening to erode housing values and congest traffic.

50-year old church sold to Muslim terror group soon to be a mosque

“It’s just bigotry,” Najib said. “It should bother anyone, so it does bother me.”

Opposition to new mosques has become “almost a given” in the Chicago area as well as throughout the country, a brand of Islamophobia often shrouded in concerns over zoning or urban planning, said Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, based in Washington, D.C.

CAIR is also a terrorist front group, banned by the FBI, confirmed as Hamas by a federal judge and ruled a terrorist organization in the UAE.

Residents in Bayonne, N.J., rallied last month against plans for a Muslim community center there, bearing signs that read “Stop the Mosque” and “If the Mosque Comes the Mayor Go’s” (sic). Around the same time, members of a Christian group spoke out against a mosque scheduled to open this spring at the site of a former South Milwaukee, Wis., church. In late November, tempers also flared at a forum over an Islamic center proposed in Fredericksburg, Va.

“It used to be a lot more subtle. Now it’s in your face,” Hooper said, attributing this shift to misplaced anger after recent terrorist attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, Calif., as well as the anti-Muslim rhetoric of presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ben Carson.

“They have really moved Islamophobia from the fringes to the mainstream,” he said.

The pro-sharia, pro-jihad, pro-HAMAS and other Islamic terrorists are the ones who have moved from the fringes to the mainstream. The counter-jihad is finally taking a stance, albeit a very small stance. Muslim terror attacks in the U.S. are increasing and the Muslim terrorists are inevitably linked to mosques. That is not a coincidence and it is not Islamophobia – a circular term created to silence critics of Islam.

While these cases were disheartening, they haven’t discouraged the overall growth of mosques in the Chicago area, said Oussama Jammal, spokesman for the Muslim American Society, the nonprofit establishing the new mosque in Palos Park.

The six-county area was home to at least 90 mosques as of 2010, said Paul Numrich, an affiliate research associate professor with the McNamara Center for the Social Study of Religion at Loyola University. There were only 67 mosques in the late 1990s, up from five — all in Chicago — before 1960, according to Numrich’s research.

Jammal said any controversy usually ends shortly after a mosque opens, and he believes this is because the surrounding community often benefits from the house of worship socially and economically.

He pointed to the strips of shops advertising in Arabic along 87th Street and Harlem Avenue, an area often called Little Palestine, just a few blocks from the Mosque Foundation, which was established in Bridgeview in 1980.

One of those businesses is the Nile Restaurant, where manager Walid Hendi questioned why anyone would object to a mosque in their neighborhood.

Why? Because it doesn’t take long for areas to become Muslim enclaves that are often called “Little Palestine!” Not to mention Jammal – who leads a coalition of terror-linked, Muslim Brotherhood front groups – points to the Mosque Foundation in Chicago, also named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas case, as his example. Citizens should be quite wary.

Mayor John Mahoney immediately condemned the anonymous leaflet as cowardly. Members of the Muslim American Society said they met with him last week, describing the talk as cordial and welcoming.

Mayor Mahoney and all residents of the area should be very concerned. From a DiscoverTheNetwork profile on the terrorist MUSLIM AMERICAN SOCIETY (MAS):

MAS’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood were confirmed on August 14, 2007, as The Investigative Project on Terrorism reported:

“As the terror-support trial of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) continued today, FBI agent Lara Burns testified that a phonebook found at the home of Ismail Elbarrasse — un-indicted co-conspirator and former assistant to HAMAS leader Musa Abu Marzook — listed the names and numbers of the Muslim Brotherhood leadership in the United States. On the first page of the phonebook under the title ‘Members of the Board of Directors’ were fifteen names. Among those names are Ahmad Elkadi, Jamal Badawi, and Omar Soubani: the founding incorporators of the Muslim American Society (MAS).”

“This evidence confirms … Matthew Levitt’s expert testimony that MAS is the representative of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States, and is substantiated by a [2004] Chicago Tribune article that outlined the history of MAS.

“Ahmad Elkadi, who told the Chicago Tribune that he was the leader of the Brotherhood in the U.S. from 1984-1994, worked with Mohammed Mahdi Akef, head of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood since 2003, to advocate for the founding of MAS. According to the Tribune report, Akef and Elkadi pushed for more openness for the Muslim Brotherhood through MAS. Akef himself ‘says he helped found MAS by lobbying for the change during trips to the U.S.’

“In fact, MAS does not deny its Muslim Brotherhood foundations. In 2004, then-Secretary General of MAS Shaker Elsayed stated to the Tribune that ‘Ikhwan [Brotherhood] members founded MAS…’ Elsayed even went so far as to admit that about 45 percent of MAS’s active members belong to the Brotherhood. Federal officials have confirmed this, noting continued ties between MAS and the Muslim Brotherhood.”

In 2002 Randall Royer was the Communications Director of MAS. The following year, federal agents arrested Royer and charged him with conspiring with a Pakistani Wahhabist group — Lashkar-I-Taibi, or “Army of the Righteous” — to commit terrorism in Kashmir, Chechnya and elsewhere.

The UAE recently added MAS and CAIR to a list of designated Islamic terrorists. Why are Americans ignoring overwhelming evidence? Who would want this mosque in their neighborhood?

Why didn’t “contact reporter” Angie Leventis Lourgos provide this information to readers? Why didn’t she refer to details about MAS from her own newspaper?
