A University of Illinois at Chicago student leader has been charged with sexually assaulting a 19-year-old female student in what Cook County prosecutors say was a re-enactment of scenes from the film “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Freshman Mohammad Hossain, 19, appeared shocked after a Cook County judge set his bail at $500,000, walking back to the lockup with his mouth wide open.

The judge was taken aback after Hossain’s lawyer, assistant Cook County public defender Sandra Bennewitz, said Hossain had been involved with several UIC leadership programs, was a student ambassador to the alumni association and was on the triathlon team.

“Sandra, how can someone involved in all that let a movie persuade him to do something like this?” asked Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr.

“He would say that it was consensual,” she replied.

Prosecutors said Hossain and the woman went to Hossain’s dorm room about 5:30 p.m. Saturday. The two had “previously been intimate” but were not dating, said Assistant State’s Attorney Sarah Karr.

Once inside his dorm, in the 900 block of West Harrison Street, Hossain allegedly asked the woman to remove her clothing and she did, keeping on her bra and underwear, Karr said. He then bound her hands above her head and to a bed with a belt, used another belt to bind her legs and stuffed a necktie into her mouth, Karr said.

Hossain used a knit cap to cover the woman’s eyes, Karr said, and removed the woman’s bra and underwear. He then began striking the woman with a belt. After hitting her several times, the woman told Hossain he was hurting her, told him to stop “and began shaking her head and crying,” said Karr.

Hossain continued striking the woman — including with his fists, according to an arrest report — and she managed to get one arm, and then another, free. But he then held her arms behind her back and sexually assaulted her as she continued to plead for him to stop, according to Karr.

Hossain’s roommate came home soon after the assault and, prosecutors said, Hossain held the door shut to prevent him from entering. The woman then left and told another person what happened, then called police.

Police arrested Hossain later that night in another dorm building in the 700 block of South Halsted Street, according to an arrest report. He was interviewed by UIC detectives and, according to Karr, admitted assaulting the woman and “doing something wrong.” He allegedly told police he and the woman were re-enacting scenes from “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Chicago: Imam resigns, flees U.S. after sex-abuse allegations

via Sex-abuse allegations against Chicago Muslim religious leader roils community – The Washington Post. h/t TROP

Allegations of sexual abuse by the longtime president of a leading Chicago-area Islamic school have roiled the region’s Muslims and raised questions about the reporting of sexual abuse in a close-knit religious community.

The allegations that Abdullah Saleem of the Institute of Islamic Education in Elgin, a Chicago suburb, sexually abused an adult female school employee surfaced in December, when a leading Muslim scholar referred to them in a blog.

Elgin police confirmed Saturday that they are conducting a criminal investigation into allegations of sexual abuse at the school, but spokesman Cmdr. Ana Lalley said she could provide no further details.

Saleem, who has been a respected Muslim leader in Chicago for decades, has not been charged with any crime.

Mohammed Kaiseruddin, chairman of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago , the region’s most influential Muslim umbrella group, said Saleem has resigned from his post and been replaced by his son. He said Saleem left for his native India after the allegations surfaced, and he did not know if he had returned.

“I’ve known him for a very long time; it came as a shock to me,” Kaiseruddin said. “Many people found it unbelievable that he would be accused of something like this. I found it unbelievable, too, until I talked to a few other people and got the same story from all of them. Sometimes our weaknesses lead us to do unbelievable things.”

Numerous attempts to reach school officials for comment were unsuccessful.

While the allegations against Saleem are nowhere near the scale of the sexual-abuse scandal faced in recent years by the Roman Catholic Church, they have raised similar painful questions about the relationship between religious communities and law enforcement officials.

How could one imams actions near the scale of the entire Roman Catholic Church?

Junaid Afeef, a lawyer and Muslim leader in Chicago, said religious and community leaders, especially among the older generation, initially had a “circle-the-wagons” response to the allegations. He said at first they largely ignored them, then chose to investigate them themselves rather than go immediately to the police.

“That’s not their job,” Afeef said. “I wasn’t surprised, but I was a little disappointed.”

“This isn’t the ’80s or the ’90s anymore,” he said. “For a while we insisted on believing that sex abuse and rape don’t happen in our community, because we are Muslims and Muslims don’t do that. But now we know that whatever social ills exists in the broader world, exist in our community, too.”

Odd, imams around the world can be readily found on Youtube stating beating your wife is permitted in Islam as is forcing her to have sex (i.e., rape).

And this guy was as revered as they come in the “Muslim community.” The scale is getting heavier, via the ultra pro-Islam, terorr-defender at the NY Crimes, Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Imam Stir Rifts in Insular Illinois Community:

Over time, she said the touching became more aggressive, reaching a point that she did something almost unheard-of in her community. She told people: her family, a social worker, an Islamic scholar. Recently, she went to the police. As word spread of what she had told them, three other women came forward, telling detectives that as young girls they had been molested by Mr. Saleem.

[….]

The accusations are particularly jarring because of Mr. Saleem’s stature. “In the South Asian community, he is like Billy Graham. He’s the archbishop of Chicago,” said Omer Mozaffar, an Islamic scholar who serves as the Muslim chaplain at Loyola University Chicago and who acted as a mediator between Mr. Saleem and his first accuser last year.

Six Bosnian Muslim immigrants in U.S. charged with supporting Islamic State terrorists

On their high horse no doubt.

xisis-phone-white-house.jpg.pagespeed.ic.qTwutJekqW

via ​6 people charged in U.S. with supporting ISIS – CBS News.

Six Bosnian immigrants have been charged in the U.S. for allegedly supporting the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the Department of Justice said Friday.

The suspects, five of whom were arrested in the U.S., are all charged with providing material support to terrorists and conspiring to provide material support and resources to terrorists, the DOJ said in a statement.

They were identified as Ramiz Zijad Hodzic, 40, his wife Sedina Unkic Hodzic, 35, and Armin Harcevic, 37, who live in St. Louis County, Missouri; Nihad Rosic, 26, of Utica, New York; Mediha Medy Salkicevic, 34 of Schiller Park, Illinois; and Jasminka Ramic, 42, of Rockford, Illinois.

The suspects immigrated from Bosnia, the Justice Department said. Three of them became naturalized U.S. citizens and the others have legal resident of refugee status.

According to an indictment unsealed Friday, the defendants sent weapons, U.S. military uniforms and tactical equipment to a man named Abdullah Ramo Pazara, a Bosnian who traveled from St. Louis to Syria in 2013 to join ISIS. They also used Western Union and PayPal to transfer money to Turkey and Saudi Arabia, where third parties sent it to Syria and Iraq. Some of the equipment was also transferred through intermediaries.

Pazara was not charged because it is believed that he was killed last year. He communicated with the defendants through social media, according to the FBI and DOJ, and bragged online about killing and kidnapping several people.

Ramiz Zijad Hodzic and Rosic face the additional charge of conspiring to kill and main persons in a foreign country.

Hodzic allegedly provided tactical advice to Pazara and other foreign fighters, the indictment said, and sent rifle scopes and range finders to Pazara, intending that they be used on sniper rifles. Rosic attempted to travel to Syria, according to the indictment.

“Today’s charges and arrests underscore our resolve to identify, thwart, and hold accountable individuals within the United States who seek to provide material support to terrorists and terrorist organizations operating in Syria and Iraq,” Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin said in a statement. “Preventing the provision of supplies, money, and personnel to foreign terrorist organizations like ISIL remains a top priority of the National Security Division and our partners in the law enforcement and intelligence communities.”

The suspects face up to 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each count if convicted. Hodzic and Rosic could be sentenced to life in prison if they are convicted on the additional conspiracy charge.

 

DOJ grants al Qaeda terrorist early release from US federal prison, sends to Qatar

Eric Holder never met a terrorist he didn’t like. via Al Qaeda operative freed from US federal prison early for ‘time served’ | Fox News.

Ali Saleh Kahlah al Marri — an admitted Al Qaeda operative in the United States — was released last week from a federal prison prior to completing his 15-year sentence because of “time served,” the Justice Department told Fox News on Tuesday.

Al Marri had been in U.S. custody since 2001, after reportedly being picked up on a routine traffic stop just weeks after the 9-11 terror attacks. During a routine check, police discovered federal authorities already had him on their radar.

He was arrested and charged with providing “material support or resources” to 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other Al Qaeda operatives.

The 49-year-old al Marri, a Qatar native, at the time of his arrest was a U.S. resident attending graduate school.

He was declared an enemy combatant in 2003 and sent to a Navy brig in Charleston, S.C.

In 2008, U.S. courts ruled that al Marri, as a U.S. resident, was entitled to a federal hearing. He accepted a plea deal in 2009 that included the 15-year sentence, reportedly at a federal prison in Illinois.

Al Marri was freed on Friday, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

His departure follows a series of releases of detainees from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as President Obama tries to close the facility, opened in the wake of the 9-11 attacks.

The recent Guantanamo releases have drawn sharp reaction from critics who say the president is now freeing the last and most dangerous detainees, who pose a high risk of re-establishing terror group connections.

Al Marri reportedly has returned to Qatar as part of a repatriation agreement.

The country last year accepted five Guantanamo Bay detainees, released in exchange for the Taliban’s release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

As part of the deal, the Qatar government imposed a one-year travel ban on the detainees and pledged they would pose no further threat to the U.S.

According to the terms of al Marri’s 2009 deal, he admitted to conspiring to “provide material support or resources” to Mohammed and other al Qaeda operatives.

“The defendant will plead guilty because he is in fact guilty,” federal prosecutors said in the court documents.

 

Muslim who threatened jihad on “South Park,” caught praying with convicted CAIR terrorist, sues DOJ

Essentially the prison is Jihad University, replete with taxpayer funded Korans and halal food. Just like Gitmo. via “South Park” Terrorist Sues Over Prayer Ban | The Smoking Gun.

The would-be jihadist who was convicted of threatening the creators of “South Park” over an episode featuring the Prophet Muhammad dressed in a bear suit is suing federal prison officials for limiting his ability to “fulfill Islam’s religious obligations,” The Smoking Gun has learned.

a civil complaint filed last month, Zachary Chesser, 25, alleges that Bureau of Prison regulations limiting religious gatherings are a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and prevent him from fully exercising his beliefs.

Chesser, a Muslim convert, contends that Islam “obligates and encourages” various congregate activities, including five daily prayers, religious classes, and celebrations. However, he notes, the BoP “only permits such activity once per week.”

Chesser is seeking a judicial order enjoining prison officials from “enforcing its policy restricting religious gatherings.” Government lawyers have yet to file an answer to Chesser’s handwritten December 22 lawsuit.

Chesser, pictured above, is locked up in the federal penitentiary in Florence, Colorado. He was transferred to the “supermax” facility in June 2014 from the penitentiary in Marion, Illinois.

Prison records show that Chesser was shipped to Florence, in part, because of his “blatant disregard and continued misconduct and refusal to adhere to institution rules.” Marion administrators concluded that his “conduct creates a risk to institutional security and good order.”

Bureau of Prison memos show that Chesser, who was convicted in 2010 of terrorism charges and sentenced to 25 years in prison, was disciplined four times for participating in an unauthorized meeting or gathering. Specifically, Chesser was cited for taking part in congregational prayer with various Muslim inmates, most of whom are fellow terrorists.

For example, in November 2011, a guard spotted Chesser and six other inmates “in the education room with the lights out.” The group was being led in prayers by Mohammed Saleh, who was convicted of conspiring to bomb the United Nations and other New York City landmarks. Others praying with Saleh and Chesser included Ibrahim Elgabrowny, a Saleh codefendant; Ghassan Elashi, who was convicted in a Hamas-related terrorism financing case; and Wali Khan Amin Shah, a terrorist bomber and associate of Ramzi Yousef, who masterminded the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

Chicago: Three ‘American’ Muslim teen siblings arrested en route to join Islamic State

Mom & Dad were shocked

Mom & Dad – who made them memorize the Koran – were “stunned”

More from this October post. They should be free to leave…just not come back. via Bolingbrook teens’ parents ‘stunned’ by Islamic State recruitment claims – Chicago Tribune.

Mohammed Hamzah Khan, 19, rose before dawn on Oct. 4 to pray with his father and 16-year-old brother at their neighborhood mosque in Bolingbrook.

When they returned home just before 6 a.m., the father went back to bed and the Khan teens secretly launched a plan they had been hatching for months: to abandon their family and country and travel to Syria to join the Islamic State.

While his parents slept, Khan gathered three newly issued U.S. passports and $2,600 worth of airline tickets to Turkey that he had gotten for himself, his brother and their 17-year-old sister. The three teens slipped out of the house, called a taxi and rode to O’Hare International Airport.

Khan was due at work at 6:30 a.m. at a local home-supply store, so he knew his parents wouldn’t miss him when they woke up. The two younger siblings bunched up comforters under their sheets to make it look like they were asleep in their beds.

Their plan was to fly to Istanbul, then drive into Syria to live in the Islamic homeland, or caliphate, established by the Islamic State, the militant group that has massacred civilians in Iraq and Syria and beheaded Western journalists and aid workers.

The Khan teens, U.S.-born children of Indian [Muslim] immigrants, each left letters for their parents explaining their motives.

“An Islamic State has been established and it is thus obligatory upon every able-bodied male and female to migrate there,” Khan wrote. “Muslims have been crushed under foot for too long. … This nation is openly against Islam and Muslims. … I do not want my progeny to be raised in a filthy environment like this.”

His sister wrote: “Death is inevitable, and all of the times we enjoyed will not matter as we lay on our death beds. Death is an appointment, and we cannot delay or postpone, and what we did to prepare for our death is what will matter.” Continue reading

Chicago judge grants bond to Muslim terrorist convicted of immigration fraud

odeh

via Rasmieh Odeh Granted Pre-Sentence Bond :: The Investigative Project on Terrorism.

Rasmieh Odeh, a 67-year-old Palestinian convicted of naturalization fraud in Detroit last month, can be freed on bond pending a March 10 sentencing date, a federal judge ruled Monday.

U.S. District Court Judge Gershwin A. Drain originally ordered that Odeh be jailed while awaiting her sentence for naturalization fraud, finding that she was a flight risk. Monday’s order reverses that, based on Odeh’s strong community ties in Chicago. But, Drain indicated, he still has concerns about Odeh’s respect for the court, ordering a $50,000 cash bond before she can be released and mandating bi-weekly reports to the probation office.

Strong community ties including working as an Obamacare Navigator?

Jurors found Odeh guilty due to her failure to disclose convictions in an Israeli court stemming from a 1969 terrorist bombing in a Jerusalem supermarket. She is certain to be sentenced for the fraud and faces “certain removal from the United States upon completion of that sentence,” Drain wrote. She never would have been admitted to the United States had she been truthful about her record, he added. Being connected with a bombing, which killed two Hebrew University students, “demonstrated a lack of good moral character that is required for eligibility to immigrate.”

Between the jury’s verdict Nov. 10 and Drain’s decision to hold her without bond pending sentencing, a defiant Odeh told supporters outside court that she did not receive justice and described the verdict as racist.

That attitude, along with Odeh’s “serial dishonesty” and repeated violations of the court’s limitations on her testimony were sufficient to show she should not be trusted to adhere to subsequent court orders and show up for her sentencing, prosecutors argued. She faces a maximum of 10 years in prison.

Drain granted the pre-sentence bond, but cited the prosecutions concerns about Odeh’s “seeming proclivity for dishonesty, as well as her apparent disdain for this Court’s Orders.” Read the full order here.
