UC-Irvine sanctions Muslim students for terrorizing Jewish campus event

Again. Source: UCI sanctions Muslim students for laying siege to Jewish event

After months of deliberation, the University of California, Irvine has concluded its investigation into its Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) chapter, deeming the group worthy of sanctions for intimidating Israeli students.

Campus Reform initially reported in May that a film-screening hosted by a Jewish student group on campus was disrupted by a protest “organized and led” by SJP, the school has finally conceded.

As a result, though, SJP will merely be issued a “written warning, effective immediately.” The school insists, however, that the warning will last a really long time—all the way until March of next year, to be exact.

The only apparent consequence of the warning is that SJP will be forced to host “an educational program by November 18 2016,” according to an email obtained by Campus Reform.

“After a thorough review, the student conduct investigation is now complete,” Vice Chancellor Thomas Parham wrote in a campus-wide email. “The investigators found that Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), the group that organized and led the protest, violated Student Conduct Policies regarding disruption: ‘Obstruction or disruption of teaching, research, administration, disciplinary procedures, or other University activities.’”

The move comes on the heels of increased pressure mounted on UCI’s administration by local Jewish advocacy groups, many of which protested the lack of action taken by the school.

At least 36 activist groups, in fact, condemned the administration for its response, saying in a letter that UCI “consistently turns a blind eye to acts of anti-Semitism.”

Just this year, though, at least nine incidents of anti-Semitic activity have occurred on UCI’s campus, the disruption caused by SJP being the most recent, where one student was left no choice but to hide from an approaching mob of protesters.

Notably, the school’s College Republican chapter was recently suspended because of an administrative technicality. Due to national outrage, though, that decision was later overturned.

In his Thursday letter, Parham noted SJP’s constitutional right to protest, but cited its hostility and intimidation as grounds for the suspension.

“UCI values its diverse mix of cultures and opinions,” he wrote. “We support and defend groups exercising free speech and assembly, yet we must protect everyone’s right to express themselves without disruption. This is a bedrock principle of our university. Let’s continue to work together to foster a safe environment that allows the open, civil, and robust exchange of ideas to flourish.”

Dearbornistan: Woman avoids rapejihad after Iraqi stalks her, traps her in her garage

Diversity alert! Source: Man allegedly stalks woman, charged with three counts of breaking and entering

DEARBORN –Ali Alsoweidi, 21, was arrested on July 27 on three counts of breaking and entering, after a female resident contacted police and claimed that she found him in her garage, where he allegedly revealed he had been stalking her.

The incident occurred on the 6400 block of Coleman Street, in east Dearborn.

The resident, a Caucasian female in her 40s, had come home shortly before midnight and parked her car inside her detached garage. She had secured all garage doors and entered her home.

But moments later, her dogs began barking. From inside her home, she observed a bicycle leaning against her garage door. The pedestrian door for the garage was also wide open.

The woman went to investigate the suspicious activity and discovered Alsoweidi, a Dearborn resident, sitting inside of her vehicle in the garage.

She told police Alsoweidi attempted to trap her in the garage and had told her that he had been “observing her for a while.” He’d revealed that he had a fixation on her and even described clothing that she had recently worn.

It remains unclear if he lives near her home. The woman had never seen Alsoweidi prior to the incident.

She also claimed that he threatened to return and seek revenge on her if she contacted authorities.

The woman was able to escape after he pushed her against her garage door opener. Once the garage door opened, the woman ran inside her home and called the police.

Alsoweidi fled the scene on his bicycle. The woman provided a detailed description to police, who later found him a short distance away.

Judge Mark Somers arraigned him in 19th District Court. His bond was set at $5,000, with a GPS tether.

In a statement, Dearborn Police Chief Ron Haddad said the woman’s swift actions helped police catch him within moments after their encounter.

“We are grateful that the victim took the initiative to contact the police immediately, which allowed us to quickly respond and investigate the matter,” Haddad said. “Due to the actions of the victim, the Dearborn Police were able to arrest the suspect quickly and remove a felon from the streets.”

Alsoweidi waived his right to a preliminary exam and has been bound over to the Third Circuit Court. The Wayne County Prosecutor’s office charged him with breaking and entering with intent, entering with breaking, and breaking and entering a motor vehicle.

An Iraqi-American, Alsoweidi graduated from Fordson High School.

Since TheAANews broke the story, Alsoweidi’s family contacted us to deny the claims that he was stalking the victim.

This wasn’t Alsoweidi’s first run-in with the law.

Earlier that month, on July 3, he was arrested and charged with two counts–robbery, and breaking and entering a building with intent in Dearborn.

On July 22, he had posted $1,000 bond and took a plea at the Third Circuit Court. He had been slated for a sentencing hearing on September 7.

However, the new charges from the July 27 incident set that timeline off-course.

A Disposition conference was held on August 25 to overview his charges.

Ontario judge defends Islam as he sentences three Muslims for jihad activities

Suliman Mohamed, Ashton & Carlos Larmond as they appeared in court

Ontario Superior Court Justice Colin McKinnon, in handing down sentences for the surprise guilty pleas, said homegrown terrorism is a virulent form of cancer that needs to be aggressively eradicated, and that the terrorist plans of the three men were a betrayal of the teachings of Islam.

“It is now hoped that they learn the error of their ways and the utter futility of pursuing jihadist terrorist causes, which constitutes a one-way street to inevitable disaster,” the judge told court. McKinnon said pledging allegiance to ISIL is like pledging allegiance to the devil.

Ashton Larmond, the 25-year-old “director” of Ottawa’s cluster network, seemed the most confident in the prisoner’s box, standing up straight away, saying he takes full responsibility, that he’ll learn from his mistakes and that it will never happen again.

Larmond, clean-cut and wearing a suit, was sentenced to 17 years for instructing a person to carry out a terrorist activity. When he walked out of Court Room 30, he smiled and waved to friends in the gallery, then shook his lawyer’s hand firmly. Joseph Addelman wished him good luck.

Addelman told Postmedia that the sentence reflects Larmond’s degree of responsibility, and his guilty plea allowed his followers, twin brother Carlos Larmond and Suliman Mohamed, 23, to get more favourable sentences. Carlos Larmond and Mohamed were each sentenced to seven years.

Carlos Larmond was arrested in January 2015 at a Montreal airport as he was boarding a flight overseas with plans of joining ISIL. He sold his belongings on the Internet before taking a train from Ottawa to the Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. His descent into extremism was quick and came at the behest of his dominant twin brother. In RCMP wiretaps, Carlos expressed hatred for Imams who preach modern Islam. He said they’re worse than infidels because they tell Muslims to sharpen pencils instead of knives.

Ashton Larmond gave up his street life in Vanier in 2011 when he converted to Islam. He went from ecstasy parties and hip hop to studying an extreme form of Islam, and when his passport was revoked days before a scheduled flight overseas to join ISIL, he grew increasingly frustrated and instead spent his time recruiting others — including and unbeknownst to him, an undercover RCMP agent.

The RCMP’s case against the three men involved wiretap and informant-provided body-wire evidence. That evidence revealed, in particular, disturbing thoughts and plans by the Ottawa network’s director, Ashton Larmond:

  • On the day Michael Zehaf-Bibeau unleashed homegrown Islamist terrorism in Ottawa on Oct 22. 2014, Ashton Larmond said he had bigger plans for his jihadist crew, saying a better strike on soldiers would be to storm Fort Bragg in a cement truck loaded with enough assault rifles and explosives to wage a three-day war against U.S. troops.
  • After seeing a soldier at Tim Hortons, he said he wanted to slit his throat.
  • He is heard telling his twin brother how the attack in a Sydney, Australia, café should have gone down: “You take the head off one of them, then you’re in control.”
  • He tells his twin brother that he knows the police are “afraid of them .. they know our religion very well, this is why they’re scared. Because they know what our religion says about killing and stuff.”
  • He met the undercover police agent in the parking lot of an Ottawa mosque to give him $1,300 in an envelope to book a flight overseas to join ISIL.

Mohamed was the only terrorist who showed emotion in the prisoner’s box, and when asked if he wanted to say anything in court, he wiped away tears as he read a handwritten statement. It was written in pencil and Mohamed’s hands shook as he read.

“It is something I am not proud of and I would like to make amends. My time in custody has reminded me of my Canadian values and who I really am. It has shown me that I do not agree with extremism in any way,” Mohamed told court.


Did anyone ask the judge specifically which teaching of Islam the actions of these three Muslims were a betrayal of? How does the judge separate “homegrown terror” from Islam?

Islam Watch has two posts recently that the judge should read as he is guilty on both accounts. First, Tropes about Islam:

Trope: “A significant or recurrent theme; a motif.” (OED).

“A common or overused theme or device.” (Mirriam-Webster).

In the west there are a number of such tropes about Islam that are widely used. What unites all of them is that they are false. Some are bare-faced lies, others are more subtle and contain various grains of truth within the myths and falsehoods. What follows is a discussion and a few examples of some of these.

The “Islam is the religion of peace” trope.

This is the Daddy of them all and so widely used that it has become a mantra.

It is a sub-trope of the “It’s nothing to do with Islam!” trope (below), but I could not avoid treating it separately given it’s prominence.

It is regularly and reliably trotted out as the first, almost Pavlovian, response to an Islamic terror attack which kills westerners.

Second, Stop Running Away from the Quran:

…there is no shortage of offensive commands in the Quran. Pick your favorite outrage, or select from the list below, all of which are criminal acts in the U.S.:

  • Chopping off hands of petty thieves (Surah 5:38)
  • Death for apostasy (Surah 4:89)
  • Inequality of women (Surahs 2:282 and 4:11)
  • Paradise promised for those who “kill and are killed.” (Surah 9:111)
  • Perpetual warfare against non-Muslims (Surahs 2:216 and 9:123)
  • Polygamy (Surah 4:3)
  • Rape of captives (Surah 33:50)
  • Sex with young girls (Surah 65:4)
  • Treating women as “tilth” – marital rape (Surah 2:223)
  • Wife beating (Surah 4:34)

Pretty sure they’d all be crimes in Canada too. Unless you are Muslim.

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

Susan Bucher, Supervisor of Elections of Palm Beach County, Florida

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!”

Not Unchristian to Worry About Resettlement of Muslims in America, Says Freedom Advocate

Source: It’s Not Unchristian to Be Worried About Refugee Resettlement in America, Religious Freedom Advocate Says

Christian religious freedom activist Faith McDonnell is pushing back against the notion that it is unchristian to voice concerns with how the State Department is resettling refugees from Syria and other terrorist hot spots in the Middle East.

McDonnell, the the director of Religious Liberty Programs and the Church Alliance for a New Sudan at the Washington-based think tank Institute on Religion and Democracy, told The Christian Post on Monday that it’s reasonable for Christians to voice concern about how the State Department is resettling only a minuscule percentage of Christian refugees from Syria and voice concern that the havoc being wrecked by Muslim refugees in Europe could also occur in America.

McDonnell took issue with recent remarks issued by Matthew Soerens, the U.S. director of church mobilization for the evangelical refugee resettlement organization World Relief.

Soerens, who works for one of nine agencies authorized by the State Department to resettle refugees inside the U.S., told CP this month that the notion that the State Department has an “anti-Christian bias” is baseless when looking at refugee resettlement numbers.

First, he said that the State Department refugee vetting process takes as long as 18 months and the refugees who are being resettled now are mostly Muslim refugees who fled their homes years ago when the Syrian conflict first started and before the Islamic State took power. He also explained that many Christians refugees fled to Lebanon, where the U.S. didn’t begin resettling refugees from until recently.

“I think that [these are] true but I don’t think that is a good excuse,” McDonnell, who has had her share of disagreements with World Relief in the past, said. “I think for one thing, if you read Mindy Belz’s book They Say We Are Infidels, you’ll see that both Syrian and Iraqi Christians had been suffering for a long time, even before the Syrian war with Assad and everything started. We should have been prepared for that. If you are refugee resettlement people and you are seeing what is on the radar screen, if you had any thought in your mind at all that Christians are being persecuted because they are Christians, then they would have been on their radar screen already.”

McDonnell said she thinks that the State Department should change the way it decides which Syrian refugees will be resettled, considering that the U.S. relies heavily on refugee referrals from the United Nations but many Christians stay away from U.N. camps due to fear of persecution from Muslim radicals.

McDonnell also believes that the State Department should expedite the vetting process for vulnerable Syrian and Iraqi Christian refugees. She detested Soerens’ claim that expediting Christian refugees would be a “double-edged sword.”

Although Soerens argued that expediting Christian refugees would cause other refugees to lie and say they are Christian, McDonnell argues that it wouldn’t be difficult to confirm whether or not refugees were actually Christians, stating that there are baptismal records available and leaders with the Assyrian and Chaldean churches are able to vouch for many Christians.

“There is this thing about ‘Are we going to respond with fear or compassion?’ I think that is a false dichotomy,” McDonnell said. “I think that you can be compassionate and still have the appropriate concern about the situation. They challenge American Christians and churches to respond biblically with Christ-like compassion and not give into fear, which they insinuate is not only sinful but in some cases, they ridicule people for it.”

McDonnell also took issue with a remark given by prominent megachurch Pastor Rick Warren, who said earlier this year that if Christians are not helping refugees, then “I doubt our Christianity.”

“Rick Warren saying that if we are not helping, he doubts our Christianity. I think that is really appalling,” McDonnell said. “If we look at what is happening right now in Europe, is it really compassionate and Christian to subject Americans to that kind of nightmare, to the rape that is going on and the changing of the entire cultures?”

Although advocates for Syrian refugee resettlement say that the State Department’s 18-month vetting process is adequate enough to keep terrorists out and keep the country safe, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., recently highlighted 20 examples of refugees who passed the State Department vetting process but were implicated in or convicted for terrorism or terrorism related offenses.

McDonnell warned that the Muslim appeasement happening in European countries should not be allowed to happen in America. Just recently, it was reported that wealthy citizens in Sweden have been asked to let newly arrived migrants stay in their own country homes.

We are voluntarily becoming dhimmis (non-Muslims citizens in an Islamic state) to Islam and seeing ourselves as second-class citizens in our own countries because of this,” McDonnell stressed.

McDonnell said that one of the things that shaped her opinion on the refugee resettlement issue was news that came out of Maine last year, when an African Christian man was slaughtered by Somali refugees.

“Maine is kind of crazy in that way, saying, ‘Oh, we embrace refugees.’ And then that is what happens because there is no sense of prudence about it at all,” McDonnell added. “I would be interested to know which one of the VOLAGs had resettled those Somali refugees and if they had any concern or compassion for the man who died at their hands,” McDonnell said.

Also, it was recently reported that an Iranian refugee in Maine became radicalized and left to join the Islamic State. [CS: after collecting welfare for 4 years]

“There is enough evidence to say that at least part of this is people who are choosing to migrate as part of Islamic hegira, to spread Islam in the West and to work on behalf of groups like the Islamic State to build the caliphate around the world,” McDonnell said. “You sound like a crazy person when you say that but that sounded crazy when people talked about a caliphate five years ago and here it is.”


As we’ve said for years, “better to be incorrectly called an Islamophobe today, then be a dhimmi, or dead, tomorrow.”

Muslim landlord breaks tenant’s leg in argument over Christianity

Source: Muslim landlord breaks tenant’s leg in argument over religion – News – JamaicaObserver.com

Milton Lazarus, 28, of Red Hills in St Andrew also pleaded guilty to destroying the complainant’s flat-screen television and figurines.

The court also heard that Lazarus forced the complainant to give up her tenancy. But this was denied by the complainant who pleaded not guilty to breaching the Rent Restriction Act.

However, Lazarus pleaded guilty to malicious destruction of property and to aggravated assault last Wednesday when he appeared before Senior Parish Judge Judith Pusey, and a sentencing date was scheduled for September 21.

According to the police, on May 28 the complainant and Lazarus were at home have a discussion pertaining to Christianity and Islam when it turned into an argument.

During the argument, Lazarus threw a metal pipe and hit the complainant in her head and on her leg, causing the leg to break.

Lazarus also damaged a flat-screen television, valued at $45,000, and some figurines belonging to the complainant.

The matter was reported and he was arrested and charged.

Last Wednesday when the matter was mentioned, Attorney Davorna Wilson tried to get bail for Lazarus.

But the prosecutor objected on the grounds that Lazarus has been involved in a number of violent incidents in his community.

Wilson, however, persisted by asking the judge to offer him bail with conditions that would ensure that he refrains from getting in any further incident.

But the magistrate refused.

“What will I tell the complainant’s children if I grant bail to a man who is known to be violent and she turns up dead?” the judge asked.

“This is not just an intellectual exercise,” Judge Pusey said, while pointing out that parish judges have to know what is happening in their parish and have to grant bail based on the circumstances.

After he was denied bail, Lazarus told the court that he had pleaded guilty from the last court date, hence he was pleaded.

He was then asked if he was willing to compensate the complainant for her damaged good and he agreed. He was subsequently told to bring $50,000 to court to pay over to the complainant on the date of his sentencing.

Glenn Beck Defies Clinton-appointed Judge’s Order to Out Confidential Source of Watch-listed Saudi

The Obama, and soon-to-be Clinton administration – with Beck’s help – will not tolerate exposing Saudi terror links.

So far, Beck’s team has not complied but this has case could have major implications. Source: Glenn Beck producer defies judge’s order to name sources – POLITICO

A producer for conservative media host Glenn Beck is declining to comply with a judge’s order to identify the sources for reports accusing a Saudi Arabian student of involvement in the deadly bombing at the Boston Marathon finish line in 2013.

U.S. District Court Judge Patti Saris, acting on a defamation suit brought by Saudi Abdulrahman Alharbi, instructed Beck, two of his producers and related companies to come forward by Wednesday with the names of the sources for the accusations Beck persisted in leveling even after senior U.S. officials publicly cleared the student.

However, a lawyer for Beck’s operation and producer Joe Weasel said Wednesday that he will not name the sources, previously identified as veteran officials of the Department of Homeland Security.

“Defendants cannot disclose the identities of Confidential Sources 1 and 2 for several compelling reasons. First and foremost, as a matter of fundamental journalistic integrity, Defendants cannot disclose the identities of the Confidential Sources without their authorization,” attorney Michael Grygiel said in a letter to Saris on Wednesday afternoon.

Grygiel said the sources were told of the judge’s demand, but “were unwilling to be identified,” despite the fact that Saris said she would keep their names out of the court record and bar those involved in the litigation from revealing who the sources are.

Beck’s lawyer also appeared to echo a public claim by Beck this month that the sources could be harmed, or possibly even killed, if they were publicly named.

“As previously represented to the Court, Defendants are justifiably concerned that substantial harm could come to the Confidential Sources if they are identified. Second, if Mr. Weasel were to disclose the identities of the Confidential Sources, it is a near certainty that no confidential sources would ever again speak to Mr. Weasel or The Blaze Inc. and its affiliates, to the detriment of an informed public,” Grygiel wrote.

The letter says Weasel worked for The Blaze “at the time” of the 2013 marathon reports, but it does not say if he still works for the firm or for Beck. A Beck spokesman did not immediately respond to a query on the point.

Weasel’s refusal to name the sources creates the possibility that he could be held in contempt of court and jailed, although Weasel is not a defendant in the case so there could be more legal hoops to jump through to go after him personally. Saris could impose fines on The Blaze Inc. or take action to limit the company’s defenses in the lawsuits, such as instructing a jury that it could infer that the sources did not exist.

It seems less likely that Beck would be held in contempt personally because Grygiel’s letter says the host had no contact with the sources “and could not identify” them.

It’s unclear whether mainstream journalists and other First Amendment advocates who have fought to protect sources in other instances will rally around Beck and Weasel as the judge mulls what action to take in the fight involving the polarizing conservative commentator.

In his letter, Grygiel asked Saris to set a conference to discuss what sanctions should be imposed due to the failure to comply with the judge’s order.

An attorney for Alharbi, Peter Haley, declined to comment on the development.


Saris joined the court in 1993 after being nominated by President Bill Clinton.

Alharbi was not your average Saudi Muslim in the U.S.

More via “Innocent” Saudi has ties to several Al-Qaeda Terrorists.
