Anaheim: Two (more) Muslims Arrested Trying to Join Islamic Terror Group, Wanted to Die Martyrs

You remember Anaheim, the Muslim enclave recently minted: “Little Arabia.”

Two men arrested in Southern California and charged with conspiring to provide material support to the terrorist group Islamic State had expressed a desire to die as martyrs, authorities said Friday.

Muhanad Badawi, 24, and Nader Elhuzayel, 24, both of Anaheim, were arrested by FBI special agents Thursday evening, the U.S. Department of Justice stated in a news release.

Badawi and Elhuzayel used social media to discuss ISIL and terrorist attacks, expressed a desire to die as martyrs and made arrangements for Elhuzayel to leave the U.S. to join ISIL, the release stated, citing a criminal complaint against the two men.

The men also discussed “how it would be a blessing to fight for the cause of Allah, and to die in the battlefield” in a recorded conversation last month, according to the complaint.

On May 7, Badawi let Elhuzayel use his credit card to purchase a one-way airline ticket from Los Angeles to Tel Aviv, Israel, via Istanbul, Turkey, the Department of Justice stated.

Badawi had indicated he would travel to the Middle East in the future, according to the complaint.

Elhuzayel was arrested at LAX and allegedly admitted that he planned to disembark in Istanbul to join ISIL and did not intend to travel on to Israel.

Elhuzayel’s father, Salem Elhuzayel, said his son was planning to visit relatives in Palestine when he was taken into custody at the airport. Salem Elhuzayel said it was not possible that his son was involved in any plans to join the Islamic State.

“No way that he kept that from us. Nader is just an innocent human being who was traveling to go home to see his family and enjoy a stay of one, two months and then come back,” Salem Elhuzayel said.

The family’s apartment at the Crystal Inn in Anaheim was raided by authorities, Salem Elhuzayel said.

Nader Elhuzayel’s mother believes their family is being harassed because of where they are from.

“It is big harassment and racism too because we happen to be from the Middle East. We are Muslim people. … My kids were born in this country,” Elhuzayel’s mother said. “It’s like a nightmare being in this situation.”

Badawi and Elhuzayel made their first court appearance Friday afternoon at U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, but did not enter pleas.

Badawi’s attorney, Kate Corrigan, said he understands the severity of the charges against him. She said he was a college student who had lived in the U.S. for many years.

“He’s a young man,” Corrigan said. “He’ somebody that is very concerned about his family at this point, and he’s obviously scared.”

Both men face a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison if convicted as charged.

A preliminary hearing for the two men was set for June 5.

The FBI said Elhuzayel admitted after his arrest that he was headed overseas to join ISIS terrorists, according to the complaint.

Meanwhile, FBI agents in Anaheim arrested his friend and alleged fellow terrorist supporter Badawi. Details of Badawi’s arrest were not released.

Elhuzayel’s parents, Palestinian immigrants Salem and Falak Elhuzayel, said their son is not a terrorist or sympathetic to terrorist ideals.

The two men “used social media to discuss (ISIS) and terrorist attacks, expressed a desire to die as martyrs and made arrangements for Nader Elhuzayel to leave the United States to join (ISIS),” according to the complaint.

Beginning in 2014, Badawi allegedly began posting pro-ISIS messages on Twitter under several usernames. One alleged message was “Inshallah (God willing) soon the Islamic State will take over Baghdad …”

Nader Elhuzayel, who authorities said also used several names on Twitter, allegedly spread similar messages. He also said to Badawi that he “wanted to die in the battlefield; he wanted to die a (martyr),” according to the complaint.

“It’s nonsensical talk,” Salem Elhuzayel said regarding his son’s alleged tweets. “This is not our son. Somebody must be speaking on his behalf.”

But Nader Elhuzayel allegedly repeatedly discussed with Badawi his desire to leave the country and join ISIS. And both men allegedly denounced local Muslim leaders because they did not support the Islamic State.

On May 3, Nader Elhuzayel allegedly told Badawi in a recorded conversation, “May we be united in the Islamic State.” Badawi, according to the complaint, admitted to using his phone to buy Nader Elhuzayel’s plane ticket while the men sat in his car May 7.

About six months ago, Nader Elhuzayel began worshipping at the nearby West Coast Islamic Society in Anaheim. Officials at the mosque would not comment on the arrests, though one member said Badawi and Nader Elhuzayel, who both attended the mosque, did not associate with others.

“The individuals prayed and left,” Sammy Ahmed said following Friday prayers at the mosque. “They didn’t hang out.”

While apparently posting the ISIS-supporting messages, Nader Elhuzayel also began using iPhone apps to learn Arabic and use that skill to read the Quran in its original language.

Nader Elhuzayel and a mysterious woman, who also supports ISIS through social media, talked daily and planned to get married and have children, according to the complaint.

An Orange County defense attorney appointed by the federal court to represent Badawi at Friday’s proceeding in the U.S. Federal Courthouse in Santa Ana said Badawi immigrated to the United States from Sudan when he was about 16 and has no previous criminal record.

A report issued earlier this week by the Anti-Defamation League cited 36 domestic arrests of individuals suspected of supporting terrorists so far in 2015. That figure does not include two men shot and killed earlier this month after opening fire at an event in Texas showcasing controversial cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad.

The number of terror arrests in the United States this year is approaching the combined total of each of the past two years, 26 in 2014 and 22 in 2013, according to the May 20 ADL report.

Video: Islamic Center of Lawrence, Kansas – raising money for Islamic jihad

Circa 1988. h/t @CausingFitna

“we have some Muslim Americans who have shared have volunteered themselves and have come over there and now they are sharing in jihad and they were trained on how to use weapons and they are sharing with their brothers mujahideen…it is part of our religion to perform jihad…we are seeking it, we are seeking martyrdom…”


Nothing has changed. Muslims living in the U.S. were funding jihad and were leaving the U.S. to wage jihad in the 1980’s (likely earlier) just as they do now.

Notice not only the size of the mosques being built, but the churches with few exceptions are barely recognizable as churches while the mosques are quite obvious. The Ypsilanti mosque alone is larger than all the churches combined. Who is funding it?

Through a combination of immigration, zoning jihad or using a flawed religious land act to force mosques in residential areas and shopping malls, Muslims are colonizing and creating enclaves all across the U.S.

Build it, and they (kufr) will leave.

Muslim Cab Driver Who Made Bombs That Killed U.S. Sgt. Randy Johnson, Gets 38 Years

via Anis Sardar, Bomb Maker Who Killed Sgt. Randy Johnson, Given 38 Years – NBC News.com.

LONDON — A British taxi driver was sentenced to a minimum of 38 years in prison Friday for his role in a bomb-making campaign that killed a U.S. soldier in Iraq.

Anis Abid Sardar, 38, was convicted of murder after his fingerprints were found on two bombs, linking him to another device that killed Sgt. Randy Johnson in September 2007.

He was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum sentence of 38 years, according to NBC News’ British partner ITV News. He was convicted of two counts of murder and conspiracy to murder a day earlier.

The judge, Mr Justice Globe, rejected Sardar’s claim that he had only been involved in making bombs to try to protect the Sunni Muslim community from Shiite militants.

“Your focus was either wholly or partly American,” the judge said, according to ITV News. “You had a mindset that made Americans every bit the enemy as Shia militias.”

Johnson, 34, of 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment, was killed when the armored vehicle he was traveling in was hit by an IED in Baghdad on September 27, 2007.

The landmark prosecution was the first time anyone has been convicted in a British court for murder during the Iraq War, ITV News reported.

Following the guilty verdict, Johnson’s widow, Claudia Williams, told NBC News: “I’m really relieved but for us it doesn’t change anything. We still lost Randy.”

Luke Stinson, one of the soldiers who tried to save Johnson’s life, admitted he hoping for a tough punishment.

“I hope they nail his ass to the wall and burn the wall down,” he told NBC News before the sentencing. “I wish they had the death penalty over there, because this guy deserves it.”

Two other U.S. soldiers, Jesus Bustamante and Joseph Bacani, were shot while trying to retrieve another bomb linked to Sardar on March 20, 2007.

Bacani, who was awarded a Purple Heart and had to learn how to walk again after being shot in the pelvis, told ITV News he was “relieved” at the thought of Sardar being brought to justice.

“I think it brings a sense of justice but it’s not an equivalent thing,” he said. “It doesn’t bring back a life but it does help us recuperate.”

 

Canada: Police nab 10 Muslim youths trying to join Muslim terror group ISIS

And rather than expose the jihadis, the mosques and the families that foster the advance of Islam:

Police asked the media to respect the privacy of the family members.

via Canada police nab 10 youths for trying to join ISIS. h/t TROP

TORONTO — Canadian police arrested 10 youths at Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport last weekend who are suspected of wanting to go to Iraq and Syria to join the Islamic State group, a government official said Tuesday.

The official confirmed the arrests late Tuesday, but did not have any other details. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk about the case.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police later issued a statement confirming that 10 young Montreal residents had been arrested at the airport.

The official said the youths were suspected of trying to join the Islamic State group, which holds wide swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria. The RCMP statement did not specifically mention IS, but said the 10 youths were “suspected of wanting to leave the country to join jihadist groups.”

The RCMP said no charges have been brought at this time, but said the investigation is ongoing. All 10 young persons had their passports confiscated.

The RCMP said it was unable to disclose the identity of the persons detained or any information about what led to their arrest because charges have not been brought.

“We can say, however, that the families and friends of the young persons have been met by investigators,” the RCMP statement said.

Police asked the media to respect the privacy of the family members.

The arrests come about a month after a similar case in Quebec in which a young man and woman were arrested in what the government called a “preventive measure.”

El Mahdi Jamali and Sabrine Djermane, both 18, later pleaded not guilty to four charges, including attempting to leave Canada to commit a terrorist act abroad. A bail hearing for the pair is scheduled for early June.

Also in April, a judge in Edmonton ordered a psychiatric exam for an Alberta teenager who was arrested in March on allegations he was planning to leave Canada to fight with Islamic State militants.

 

U.S. ‘Prepared to Play Leading Role’ in Absorbing Muslims from Burma, Already Imported 1,000+

Taxation for Islamization. via U.S. ‘Prepared to Play a Leading Role’ in Absorbing Muslim Refugees From Burma.

(CNSNews.com) – The United States is “prepared to play a leading role” in resettling Muslim refugees from Burma and Bangladesh, known as Rohinga, a State Department spokesperson said on Wednesday.

We’ve already resettled, I think, more than 1,000 Rohinga, and we said we’re prepared to take a leading role in any (United Nations)-organized effort,” said spokeswoman Marie Harf. “It has to be a multicountry effort. We obviously can’t take this all on ourselves. But we are prepared to play a leading role in this effort.”

Harf spoke one day after the United Nations refugee agency warned that time was running out for thousands of people stranded at sea and urged governments in Southeast Asia “to urgently rescue and disembark these vulnerable people.”

“We estimate that nearly 4,000 people (Rohinga) from Myanmar and Bangladesh remain stranded at sea with dwindling supplies on board,” the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees said. “This includes some 2,000 men, women and children stranded on at least five boats near the Myanmar-Bangladesh coasts for more than 40 days. Unconfirmed reports suggest the number could be higher,” UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards told journalists in Geneva on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Harf said the U.S. resettlement of 1,000 Rohinga in the current fiscal year “has been an ongoing process.”

“I’m not sure there’s been some new decision,” she said.

“If there are more migrants, would the U.S. be willing to resettle some or provide military assets to help with the moving people around?” a reporter asked Harf.

“Yes, so we’re actively considering our options right now on two pieces of that, though. I’ll start with financial assistance. If the UNHCR and ION indicate the need for additional funds to assist governments to establish things like reception centers and ensure protection screening procedures, we’ll consider those requests. We will encourage other governments to respond quickly and generously, and we’ll be ready to respond to an appeal if and when they make one.

“In terms of resettling, I think the Malaysians and the Indonesians have requested some help resettling people. We’re taking a careful look at the proposal. We’re prepared to take a leading role in any UNHCR-organized multicountry effort to resettle the most vulnerable refugees.

“I’d note that more than 1,000 Rohinga have already been resettled to the U.S. so far this fiscal year. And we’re also providing assistance, this year we provided nearly $109 million in humanitarian assistance for vulnerable Burmese since the beginning, again, of this fiscal year.”


We’ve taken in more than 1,000 Muslim invaders that taxpayers are forced to subsidize AND…AND taxpayers have been robbed of $109 MILLION dollars to fund Muslims over there.

Traitorous.

 

Minneapolis: Airplane-fueling Muslim joins ISIS, promptly meets Allah

h/t Jihad Watch who notes:

No one would have dreamed of trying to determine whether Ahmed should really have been fueling passenger jets. That would have been “Islamophobic.”

via Facing child support, Minneapolis man joins the jihad

MINNEAPOLIS — Abdifatah Ahmed struggled for years to make ends meet.

After losing his $15-an-hour job fueling airliners in Minneapolis, the Somali-American father of nine survived on low-wage jobs and public assistance. He complained about working hard, but never having enough money. His circumstances worsened when he was ordered to pay more than $700 a month to support three of his children — including one less than a year old.

Months later, he surfaced in Syria, where he went to fight for the Islamic State.

“I think since he lost his job, he was maybe never normal after that,” sister Muna Ahmed told the AP last fall.

“It’s unbelievable,” his friend, Farhan Hussein, said recently. “Where did this disease come from?”

Hussein said his friend seemed confused about life, and sometimes felt stressed out by the women with whom he had children: Minnesota court papers show at times he was paying child support to two ex-wives for five of his kids, as well as support for a sixth whose mother is not identified. He wasn’t the type to go to mosque or pray every day — instead, he went clubbing and even drank alcohol, Hussein said.

When he felt troubled, Ahmed might turn to his religion for a week or so at a time. But once the blues passed, he would be back to his old self — flirting with women, dressing sharply, listening to rap music, shooting hoops and lifting weights at a local gym, Hussein said.

He dipped sporadically into political discussions, speaking about the Palestinians, the civil war in Libya and conditions in the Ogaden region of Ethiopia where many Somalis live. But the continued atrocities against Syrian civilians committed by the Assad regime apparently made a deeper impression.

On Dec. 3, 2013, a post on his Facebook account showed pictures of mutilated kids: “Look what is happening in syria. Where is the UN when u need them. This is worse than libya you get it?”

A month later, it appears, Ahmed was in Syria himself.

“A muslim has to stand up for was right. … I give up this worldly life for allah and to save the ummah (community of believers) if that makes terrorist am happy with it,” he wrote in a Jan. 3, 2014 post.

Another post that same day contains a photo of him holding a rifle in one hand, and a book that may be the Quran in the other.

Alarmed, Hussein messaged Ahmed, urging him to come home. After ignoring his friend for months, Ahmed replied that “we’ve got to fight” for the caliphate.

Ahmed’s last Facebook posts, including one that says “having fun in jihad,” are dated last July 25.

The next month, a member of Ahmed’s family received a picture that appeared to show him dead, with a gunshot wound to the head. The State Department is working to verify reports of Ahmed’s death, but Hussein identified the person in the photo as his friend, who would have been 34 according to court records.
