Detroit — FBI agents are investigating an alleged conspiracy involving Detroit terror suspect Sebastian Gregerson and believe he was plotting violent jihad with a Maryland imam, The Detroit News has learned.

The conspiracy angle is revealed in more than 200 pages of sealed federal court records obtained by The News that offer new details about an FBI counterterrorism investigation spanning at least three states. The investigation emerged July 31 when Gregerson of Detroit was arrested in Monroe after allegedly buying fragmentation grenades from an undercover FBI agent and amassing an arsenal of weapons.

Maryland Imam Suleiman Bengharsa allegedly helped finance the arsenal, which included two AK-47s, handguns, seven rifles, a shotgun and thousands of rounds of ammunition, according to the court records. It is unknown whether the imam was financing weapons purchases in other parts of the country.

“Based on the totality of the aforementioned information and evidence, there is reason to believe that Bengharsa and Gregerson are engaged in discussions and preparations for some violent act on behalf of (the Islamic State),” an FBI agent wrote in a Jan. 7 search warrant application.

The scope, targets and number of people involved in the investigation are unclear, but the case also involves Virginia.

Bengharsa, 59, of Clarksburg, Md., laughed away most of the FBI’s allegations, which he called “ridiculous,” and denied being an Islamic State supporter.

“No, no, no, that is absolutely untrue,” Bengharsa said during a phone interview with The News on Wednesday. “It might appear that way. I am an advocate of the United States and the West getting the hell out of the Middle East and the Muslim world.

“It’s ridiculous. All I can say is it’s ridiculous,” he added. “If this was the case, why haven’t they come to arrest me?

Bengharsa, who also is known as Sheikh Suleiman Anwar, has not been charged with a crime during the ongoing investigation. Continue reading

Same week as 9/11, Six Flags Holding ‘Muslim Family Day’ at Multiple Parks

Yesterday, Thousands of Americans were evacuated from Six Flags America after phoned-in bomb threat in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Coincidentally, or not, that same park will be holding a Muslim Family Day just days after 9/11. 

However, if the average American citizen viewed the Six Flags Park Operating Schedule, they would have no idea the Muslim Family Day event was taking place and may take their own family to the park and be quite shocked by the large presence of Islamic supremacists. Why wouldn’t this event be on the calendar?

Muslim Family Day at Six Flags America

Saturday, September 17, 2016 from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm 

The park hijacking is also taking place this week at Six Flags in San Francisco and New Jersey.

As noted in previous posts, below, this event originally barred non-Muslims from attending. Now, it dictates how non-Muslim employees can dress – all not to offend Muslims (ala sharia law).

Six Flags Muslim Family Day & Terror (video)

Does Six Flags have any idea who ICNA is or what ICNA represents? Here is just a little background on ICNA:

ICNA has established a reputation for bringing anti-American radicals to speak at its annual conferences. Moreover, experts have long documented the organization’s ties to Islamic terrorist groups.

On numerous occasions, ICNA has explicitly excluded non-Muslims from its public gatherings. In September 2004, for example, ICNA sparked widespread controversy when, in cooperation with the management of the Great Adventure Theme Park in New Jersey, it organized a “Great Muslim Adventure Day” that barred non-Muslims from the park on that day. This annual tradition is still observed.

In 2000, made public a press release, originally posted on a Middle Eastern website, from a July 2000 ICNA meeting, which read: “Jamaat e-Islami’s supporters have an organization in America known as ICNA …” The press release also recounted some of the views expressed at the aforementioned ICNA meeting. These included an exhortation that “Islam must be translated into political dominance”; pleas for support for “jihad” in “Chechnya, Kashmir, Palestine, Iraq [against U.S. forces], southern Sudan, and … in Bosnia/Kosova [sic]“; an appeal for unity among Pakistani Muslims against “Hindu Brahmins and Zionist Jews”; and an endorsement of Muslim women’s inclusion in carrying out jihad.

ICNA works closely with the Muslim American Society (MAS). Speaking at a December 2002 conference sponsored by ICNA and MAS, Muslim cleric Shaker Elsayed complained in Arabic “about the subject unfairly named suicide bomber, homicide bomber, murderers, or killers. Our answer to this issue is simple … The Islamic scholars said whenever there is an attack on an Islamic state or occupation, or the honor of the Muslims has been violated, the Jihad is a must for everyone, a child, a lady and a man. They have to make Jihad with every tool that they can get in their hand … and if they don’t have anything in their hand then they can fight with their hand without weapons.

Baltimore: 14 Arrested in $16M Food Stamp Fraud Raids

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — More than a dozen retail store operators in and around Baltimore have been charged in connection to a huge food stamp and wire fraud scheme.

The indictments allege the retailers received more than $16 million in federal payments for transactions in which they did not provide any food, a fraud scheme commonly known as “food stamp trafficking.”

Retailers must apply to and be approved by the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service to participate in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as the Food Stamp Program, which helps low income families afford nutritious foods.

In Maryland, the program provides eligible individuals with an electronic benefit transfer (EBT) card, which operates like a debit card. Authorized retailers use a terminal that checks the card information and deducts the cash value of the purchase from the SNAP balance.

SNAP reimbursements are paid to retailers through electronic funds transfers. Retailers bill the government in return for providing approved food items to customers.

The indictments allege that the defendants illegally exchanged EBT benefits for cash, instead. To avoid detection, they debited the funds from the card in multiple transactions over a period of hours or days, or called a different store where the transaction was processed manually, the Department of Justice says.

As a result these transactions, they allegedly obtained more than $16,482,270 in EBT deposits for transactions in which food sales never occurred or were substantially inflated and split the proceeds with food stamp recipients.

“The food stamp program is intended to put food on the tables of needy recipients, not to put money in the pockets of greedy criminals,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. “Honest storeowners work hard to earn a profit by actually selling food, and food producers and distributors also benefit. People who play by the rules deserve to know that criminals who defraud them will be held accountable.”

The defendants face a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for each count of wire fraud; a maximum of five years in prison for conspiracy to commit food stamp fraud and wire fraud; and a maximum of five years in prison for food stamp fraud.

Maryland: Obama expected to open largest mega-mosque complex in U.S.

As Creeping Sharia noted a year ago, Obama accepts offer to open Turkish mega-mosque in Maryland. 


According to a Turkish newspaper that time is here: h/t Shoebat

America’s largest mosque complex, officially known as Turkish-American Culture and Civilization Center, was built with Turkish funding under the supervision of the Turkish religious foundation (Diyanet). The $100 million mega mosque in Lanham, Maryland, will soon be open for Muslim worshipers in the Washington, DC area, as Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdoğan and US President Barack Obama are expected to open the mosque.

The same Turkish rag words it slightly differently here: Erdoğan to open first US double-minaret mosque

The $100 million mega-mosque in Maryland, US will soon be open in the Washington, DC area, as Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdoğan is expected to open the mosque during his official visit to the US between March 29 and April 2.

America’s largest mosque complex, officially known as the Turkish-American Culture and Civilization Center, was built with Turkish funding under the supervision of the Turkish religious foundation (Diyanet).

Almost all $100 million for the mosque was funded by the Religious Affairs and the Religious Foundation of Turkey.

The mosque is part of the Turkish-Islamic Center also known as the “American Religious Center,” built on a large area in Lanham, Maryland that will have the capacity to host 3,000 Muslim worshippers indoors and outdoors.

In addition to the mosque, the complex will also include a community building, a guest house, traditional Turkish houses, library, conference and exhibition halls, meeting rooms and reception area.

The complex, which also includes a museum of Islamic art, was built according to 16th century architecture.

The ISIS-supporting Erdogan was jailed for inciting Muslims when he stated:

“The minarets are our bayonets; the domes are our helmets. Mosques are our barracks, the believers are soldiers. This holy army guards my religion. Almighty, Our journey is our destiny, the end is martyrdom.”

It appears to sit in the middle of a residential neighborhood.

Meanwhile, in Turkey, where ISIS and other Muslim terror groups train and shelter:

The Obama administration ordered the families of U.S. military and diplomatic personnel to leave parts of southern Turkey on Tuesday and warned U.S. citizens against travel to the region amid mounting security concerns.

Maryland: Muslim “Refugee” Family of 9 Includes Blind Father, 7 Kids

Guess who will be supporting this Muslim family for the next half dozen or more decades? via: Syrian Refugee Family Welcomed in College Park

A U-Haul pulled into the apartment complex early after Fajr found the Farook family was ready to move to their new home in College Park, MD. Volunteers from Virginia, Baltimore and the Dar Us Salaam (DUS) community brought out boxes from the midsize ‘dingy’ apartment that was clearly too small for a family of nine.

In coordination with other concerned Muslims in the Baltimore metro, a coalition was formed streamlining processes, delegating tasks so that efforts were not duplicated. Through the help of this committee, one family was moved to the neighborhood near the  Islamic Society of Baltimore community. The coalition will continue to look for affordable rental homes to house refugees in areas close to established Muslgim communities. “We wanted to give them the mental comfort of living in an established community that can help in case of need.

There you have it. Muslims are helping so-called Muslim refugees move into areas surrounding Muslim mosques to build up larger Muslim enclaves. When you see a mosque being proposed in your neighborhood, know that Muslims will be flooding the area. And if it’s the so-called refugees that are coming, they will be doing so on your taxpayer dime.

We are in the process of doing a rental application for another family,” shared Umm Hamza.  Processing the Farook family’s rental application took time as they were denied many times due to the large family size and other factors.

Currently, there are six Syrian refugee families in the area. Two are in Hyattsville, two in Baltimore. Umm Hamza says that they will work with International Rescue Committee to bring more families to College Park.

Abu Khalil and his wife Abeer have settled into their new home. 5 of the 7 children will attend Al Huda school, where the community has pledged to take care of their needs because Abu Khalil is blind and will not be able to find work as easily as other refugees.

The committee is looking for volunteers to tutor the children far behind their peers.

In summary, taxpayers have imported a Muslim family of nine with a blind father and kids who are far behind their peers. But, Muslims in Maryland and priming the pipeline and will be bringing more tax burdens to the areas around mosques. With seven kids, mom won’t be working and with dad being blind – there’s a pretty good chance he’ll end up on disability.

The new America!! And check out the new Maryland.



Obama’s Speech at Islamic Center of Baltimore: A Fact Check

obama-mosque-2Source: President Obama’s Speech at Islamic Center of Baltimore: A Fact Check

by Clare M. Lopez

Perhaps it’s because he was making faces in Qur’an class instead of paying attention to his teacher. Or maybe he just has a selective memory about what he was taught as a young Muslim student in Indonesia.

Whatever the reason, President Barack Obama got a lot of things factually wrong in his 3 February 2016 speech at the Islamic Center of Baltimore. Things that are basic to doctrinal Islam are not only knowable because they are readily available in English but, it might be argued, obligatory that an American commander-in-chief should know in fulfillment of his oath to defend the Constitution against “all enemies foreign and domestic.”

First, Mr. President, a mosque is not simply the Muslim version of a church, synagogue or temple. Because of the example of Muhammad, who is called the perfect man in the Qur’an (believed by Muslims to be the exact words of Allah), we know that mosques are established not only as places of prayer and worship, but also as centers for indoctrination, the dispensing of shariah justice, the stockpiling of weapons, and the launching of jihad. If in doubt about any of this, please check with the French police, who recently have been conducting raids on mosques and Islamic Centers in the wake of horrific jihadist attacks in Paris.

The president must have missed more than one lesson on Arabic grammar, too. When he claims that “the word itself, Islam, comes from salam—peace,” he is mistaken. While the words “Islam” and “salam” share the same three root letters—s, l, m—they are, in fact, very different words with completely different meanings. While “salam” indeed means “peace” in Arabic, “Islam” means “submission.” Submission to what? To Allah and Islamic Law. A “Muslim” is a person who submits. Surely the president knows this. Or maybe the White House Arabic language translator needs to be replaced.

Unfortunately, in pursuit of that submission, Islamic doctrine obligates Muslim conquest of the Dar al-Harb (places not yet subjugated to shariah). We know this not only from the example of Muhammad’s own life as taught to Muslim students from the 1st grade, but also from the Qur’an and hadiths. For example, Qur’an verse 9:29 says: “Fight those who believe not… until they pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.” The Qur’an is quite clear in verse 3:85 as well: ‘Whoever seeks a religion other than Islam will never have it accepted of him…’ Islamic Law defines jihad quite simply: “Jihad means to war against non-Muslims.”

This is not cherry-picking Qur’anic verses. This is Islamic doctrine as uniformly presented in the Qur’an, hadiths, biography of Muhammad, and Islamic Law. It is the agreed consensus of all authoritative Islamic scholars throughout the centuries. We may wish that more Muslim scholars would teach the prohibition of terror (jihad). But of course, they cannot teach what is contrary to Islamic doctrine. For the Qur’an itself commands Muslims to “make ready your strength to the utmost of your power… to strike terror into the hearts of the enemy.” (Q 8:60)

And when the President purports to quote the Qur’an about killing an innocent, he either willfully or out of ignorance is misquoting Islamic scripture. In fact, Qur’an verse 5:32 cites from a Jewish commentary on the Talmud: “On that account, We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone slew a person—unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land—it would be as if he slew the whole people…” This is the definition of killing without right in Islam. The takeaway here is that a Muslim may not kill except those who themselves have killed without right or perpetrated “mischief in the land”—which may include failing to accept Islam. What the President and others too often leave out is the next verse, Q 5:33, which lays out the punishments for those who disobey 5:32. They are: “death, crucifixion, amputation of the hand and foot on opposite sides or exile from the land.” The President might be asked why he left those out, when they are precisely the punishments the Islamic State (IS) is applying to those under its control in faithful obedience to what they believe is the word of Allah. This isn’t an IS version or interpretation of the Qur’an. It is what the Qur’an actually says.

These are just a few of the things the President might have said, were his intention to be accurate about the enemy we fight. He might have added that we are not actually fighting terrorism: we are fighting to defend the Constitution from attack by forces of jihad seeking to impose shariah. This does not mean we must be at war with all Muslims. But all those who fight or support the Global Jihad Movement are on the wrong side of our Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and the way of life Americans treasure because, unlike Islamic doctrine, they enshrine principles of individual liberty, equality before man-made law, government by consent of the governed, and the right to freedoms of belief and speech.

Those, Mr. President, are the “first things” principles we Americans are willing to fight and die for. American Muslims who accept and defend them are patriots, too—but unfortunately, these are not principles to be found anywhere in the authoritative Islamic canon—and Americans need to know that.
