INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A suburban Indianapolis teenager accused of trying to travel overseas to join the Islamic State militant group has been formally indicted.

A federal grand jury indicted Akram Musleh on Wednesday on a charge of providing material support to a terrorist organization. The Brownsburg man, who was 18 at the time of his June arrest, faces a Sept. 23 initial hearing. He’s being held in federal custody.

FBI agents arrested Musleh as he tried to board a bus to New York. Prosecutors have said he planned to fly to Morocco and on to territory controlled by the Islamic State. A criminal complaint alleges Musleh intended to join the terror group.

Messages seeking comment were left for two of Musleh’s attorneys.

In addition to trying to travel to the Middle East, the FBI alleges Musleh “conducted extensive internet searches on explosive materials, including: dynamite, flash powder, explosive precursors, instructions on constructing explosive devices and explosive chemical recipes.” An agent conducting surveillance on Musleh reportedly observed him shopping for pressure cookers at the Brownsburg Walmart.

The criminal complaint includes a number of alleged conversations between Musleh and an unidentified person in which Musleh expresses his desire to be in an Islamic State propaganda video. The two also allegedly discussed the possibility of Musleh attacking a “drone place.”

FBI agents obtained a court order in May to search Musleh’s phone. Investigators reportedly recovered files related to jihad, martyrdom and the Islamic State on the device.akram-musleh-isisMusleh searched online for information about potential terror targets in Indiana, explosive materials and pressure cookers.

BROWNSBURG, Ind. – FBI agents raided the home of a Brownsburg man Tuesday accused of attempting to provide aid to the Islamic State.

The raid was conducted at the residence of 18-year-old Akram Musleh at the Brownsburg Pointe Apartments.

According to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday, Musleh is a U.S.-born citizen who attended Brownsburg High School.

The FBI alleges Musleh booked or attempted to book several one-way flights to Iraq and Turkey, but never completed the flights. They also allege communications intercepted from Musleh indicated he was attempting to travel to the Middle East to join the Islamic State.

In addition to trying to travel to the Middle East, the FBI alleges Musleh “conducted extensive internet searches on explosive materials, including: dynamite, flash powder, explosive precursors, instructions on constructing explosive devices and explosive chemical recipes.” An agent conducting surveillance on Musleh reportedly observed him shopping for pressure cookers at the Brownsburg Walmart.

The criminal complaint includes a number of alleged conversations between Musleh and an unidentified person in which Musleh expresses his desire to be in an Islamic State propaganda video. The two also allegedly discussed the possibility of Musleh attacking a “drone place.”

FBI agents obtained a court order in May to search Musleh’s phone. Investigators reportedly recovered files related to jihad, martyrdom and the Islamic State on the device. The phone also contained several audio files of lectures by Anwar Al-Awlaki – a Yemeni-American imam accused of being a senior recruiter and planner for al-Qaeda.

On June 3, the FBI says Musleh booked a one-way ticket to Casablanca, Morocco, on July 21 from New York City. Agents arrested Musleh Tuesday as he was boarding a Greyhound bus in Indianapolis.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday it had filed federal charges against Musleh of providing material support to the Islamic State.

Musleh could potentially face 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.

Musleh searched online for information about potential terror targets in Indiana, explosive materials and pressure cookers. An FBI agent followed him in early May to a local Walmart where the complaint says Musleh appeared to “shop for pressure cookers, but left without making a purchase.” Pressure cookers have been used to house explosive devices, such as the twin bombs that exploded during the Boston Marathon in April 2013.

The FBI apparently first came across Musleh back in August 2013 when he posted videos on YouTube of the late American al Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a man who is thought to have at least partly inspired a growing number of homegrown jihadists. Officials at Musleh’s high school, “in coordination with the FBI, took steps to dissuade Musleh [from] engaging in radical extremism.”

Apparently, it didn’t take. In September 2014, Musleh purportedly bought a black flag often associated with ISIS online and a few months later posed for photos in front of it. In several online conversations apparently monitored by investigators, Musleh discusses with ISIS sympathizers — and at least one FBI “confidential human source” — his desire to join ISIS and in one part says he pledged his allegiance to the terror group, according to the complaint.

Indiana: City council passes Islamic sharia blasphemy resolution

An update on this post on the sharia resolution condemning anti-Islamic speech.

via: Disputed resolution passed by council – TheNewsDispatch.com: News

MICHIGAN CITY — Two councilmen stood in the way of a much-talked-about resolution receiving the full support of the Michigan City Common Council on Tuesday.

A resolution titled “Condemning Violence, Bigotry and Hateful Rhetoric Toward Muslims in the United States,” passed 7-2 with councilmen Chris Schwanke and Ron Hamilton voting against it.

Both said they object to the resolution because it should protect the rights of all people, regardless of their religious beliefs. “I have no problem supporting a resolution covering all religions,” Hamilton said before he voted against the one on the table.

Schwanke made similar remarks before also casting his “nay” vote.

The seven other council members spoke in support of this resolution, with Councilman Al Whitlow expressing concern that a resolution condemning hate and bigotry has garnered so much discussion.

“We’re not trying to eliminate hate, although that would be wonderful,” he said. “We are saying the expression of hate through violent acts is inappropriate in this country.”

There are already laws against violence, so this is redundant and was pushed by Muslim supremacists to silence critics of Islam.

Councilman Don Przybylinski said, “Michigan City is a progressive, proactive community and a progressive and proactive community always supports its citizens … In our hearts, we need to stand up for the citizens of the United States, the citizens of Michigan City and human beings in general.”

This resolution was introduced last month by Councilwoman Pat Boy, but was sent to a committee meeting because concerns were raised about the exclusivity of the resolution by just protecting the religious freedom of Muslims.

That committee, made up of council members Hamilton, Candice Silvas and Bryant Dabney, voted 2-1 to support the resolution as written – with Hamilton voting against it.

Just before the vote on Tuesday, representatives spoke in favor of the resolution, urging the council to support it, including speakers from the Human Rights Commission, the Michigan City Commission for Women, Citizens Concerned for Syrian Refuges and the La Porte County NAACP.


All leftist, pro-Muslim, pro-invasion groups.

Indiana: City to vote on sharia resolution condemning anti-Islamic speech

Islam means submission and our elected officials are attempting to submit us to Islam as quickly as they can. These fools would enforce sharia law if they could.

“You can’t legislate kindness, but it would be really great if you could,” Councilwoman Pat Boy said, discussing a new resolution she will introduce to the Michigan City Common Council this week.

The resolution, titled “Condemning Violence, Bigotry and Hateful Rhetoric Toward Muslims in the United States,” is the result of discussions by local group Citizens Concerned for Syrian Refugees.

Boy hopes to see unanimous support from her fellow council members when she introduces the resolution during Tuesday’s council meeting at City Hall.

The committee responsible for this action, Boy said, originated within the League of Women Voters of La Porte County but quickly grew to include other individuals. It was formed in reaction to the treatment of refugees by the state of Indiana, she said.

“Indiana had people lined up to come here as refugees – there were places for them to go and support for them to come here, but the governor wouldn’t let them come,” she said, referring to Gov. Mike Pence’s ban on Syrian refugees resettling in Indiana last year.

This led to a concern for the treatment of all immigrants, but particularly Muslims – a group that has seen an upswing in mistreatment in America since 9/11.

The resolution says, “Hateful and intolerant acts against Muslims are contrary to the United States’ values of acceptance, welcoming and fellowship with those of all faiths, beliefs and cultures.”

It further states, “The rise of hateful and anti-Muslim speech, violence and cultural ignorance plays into the false narrative spread by terrorist groups of Western hatred of Islam, and can encourage certain individuals to react in extreme and violent ways and … these acts affect not only the individual victims but also their families, communities and the entire group whose faith or beliefs were the motivation for the act.”

If approved, this resolution would be a statement from the council “(reaffirming) the inalienable right of every citizen to live without fear and intimidation and to practice their freedom of speech.”

Boy said, “It just makes a statement that Michigan City is not in favor of this persecution.” She said state legislators are working on a bill downstate regarding hate crimes – so she thinks the timing of this resolution is perfect.

If it is approved, a copy of the resolution will be sent to Pence, as well as the Indiana State Senate and House of Representatives.

Joining Boy in this stand against violence are councilmen Al Whitlow, Bryant Dabney and Don Przybylinski – all who signed on as co-sponsors of this resolution.

It will be voted on by the full council during the next meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall.


FBI statistics show that the overwhelming majority of so-called religious hate crimes in the U.S. are not against Muslims but against Jews…and they are quite often perpetrated by Muslims! No resolutions for that?

Indiana: Muslim woman pictured at ‘Islam on Capitol Hill’ convicted of Medicaid fraud, again

She was a convicted fraud when she was photographed at the Islam on Capitol Hill Day in 2009 and now she’s a two-time convicted fraudster. Why isn’t she in jail?

Kameelah Omar-Muhammad (R) of Atlanta, Georgia, greets Khadijah Shareef of Muslim Women of America in Indianapolis, Indiana, during the “Islam on Capitol Hill 2009” event at the West Front Lawn of the U.S. Capitol September 25, 2009 in Washington, DC.

 

Like the earlier post, if she agreed to pay back $720,000 she must have robbed taxpayers for a lot more than that over the yeas. via Carmel woman ordered to pay back more than $700k for Medicaid fraud. h/t D

A Carmel woman who unlawfully received more than $700,000 in Medicaid payments has been ordered to pay back the money and spend three years on probation.

Khadijah Shareef, 54, was sentenced on federal charges of Medicaid fraud, U.S. Attorney Josh J. Minkler announced Tuesday.

A news release from Minkler’s office states that Shareef submitted enrollment applications to Indiana Medicaid for two businesses while barred from all federal health care programs.

“When an ineligible provider engages in fraud to wrongly bill Medicaid for millions of dollars, it is a violation of the public trust and demonstrates contempt for the taxpayers,” Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller said in a statement.

Court documents state that in October 2002, Shareef, under the name of Khadijah Mohammed, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit medicare fraud in the northern district of Georgia. Following her sentencing, Shareef was excluded from participation in the Medicare, Medicaid, and all health care programs for a minimum of seven years.

Shareef never appealed her exclusion and never requested reinstatement making her unable to participate in federal health care programs, including Medicaid.

In September 2008, Shareef submitted enrollment applications to Indiana Medicaid for both Indiana Home Health Inc. and Indiana Personal Care, court documents state. Both applications were completed by Shareef and falsely listed her sister as the owner and operator of both businesses.

The companies then submitted claims to Indiana Medicaid for reimbursement of services provided.

In October 2013, search warrant was executed at the business location of Indiana Home Health Inc. and Indiana Personal Care. After a review of the submitted Medicaid claims from 2008 through April of 2012, the investigation determined Shareef unlawfully received $720,358.08.

Shareef was sentenced to three years on probation and ordered to make restitution in the full amount of the payments received.

Pelosi names Muslim lawmaker who wants to model US schools after madrassas to House intel committee

CAIR-funded Andre Carson sponsored a fundraiser with terror-listed CAIR, and Nancy Pelosi was his keynote speaker. Now she’s paying it forward and CAIR has another Muslim mole in a sensitive position.

via Nancy Pelosi to name first Muslim lawmaker to House intelligence committee – POLITICO.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced in a closed-door meeting Tuesday she would name the first Muslim lawmaker to the House’s Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

A senior Democratic aide said Rep. André Carson of Indiana would be named in the “coming days” to the key national security-focused panel. Pelosi (D-Calif.) told lawmakers of the appointment during the members’ weekly caucus meeting.

Carson would be the first Muslim to serve on the committee and was the second Muslim to be elected to Congress. He already serves on the Armed Services Committee and worked for the Department of Homeland Security’s Fusion Center — the clearinghouse established by the federal government to streamline data sharing between the CIA, FBI, Department of Justice and the military.

The intelligence committee will most likely tackle a series of high-profile international crises during the 114th Congress, including the threat of Islamic militants and Ukraine.

Carson’s office didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

The announcement comes in the wake of last week’s terrorist attack by Islamic extremists and subsequent shootouts with police that left 17 people dead. World leaders gathered on Sunday for a 1 million person “solidarity” protest against the violence that targeted French Jews and journalists.

 Conflicting info about Carson in the media:

Updates: Carson is a staunch believer in Islamophobia and Muslim victimhood but also believes with 1% of the population Muslims should exert greater control in the U.S.

The question becomes how do we leverage our voting blocks to become precinct committee persons, become ward chairs, members of school boards, or members of zoning boards? Every time we try and build a school or a mosque there are impediments because of local zoning boards [these provide planning permission for buildings, similar to local planning authorities in the UK]. If we increase our presence we can change that.

It’s time to have Muslim mayors of major cities.

As I travel the country I’m speaking to large Muslim groups telling them we can no longer have a mistress relationship with politicians.

They [politicians] come to our communities under the cover of darkness because they don’t want to be seen with us in public. That is unacceptable for a community that is highly educated, and has a large amount of capital that can be leveraged to create our own super PACs [these are organisations that pool campaign contributions and donate those funds to candidates]. But unless we see our own value we will not see significant changes in regards to the treatment we are receiving.

This is why it’s important to get involved in local races and local communities. It’s about Muslims becoming entrenched in the community over time…

The tactics are different, the goal is the same.

Watch the video above again in full. This man is delusional. He is dangerous. He does not belong on any intel committee.
