A Somerville landlord and Christian minister convicted of pushing her Muslim tenant down the stairs must comply with a judge’s order that she learn about the Islamic faith as part of her probation, the state’s highest court concluded Wednesday.

In a unanimous ruling, the Supreme Judicial Court left intact the probation imposed on Daisy Obi by Somerville District Court Judge Paul M. Yee Jr. in 2014. The SJC’s ruling was based on procedural grounds and didn’t directly address the probation condition.

daisy-obiWriting for the court, Justice Barbara Lenk noted that under court rules, a person must first object in a lower court if he or she wants the high court to review it. No such objection was made by Obi and her attorneys, Lenk wrote.

“While conditions of probation that touch on religion and risk incursion upon constitutionally protected interests should be imposed only with great circumspection, the defendant raised no such concerns before the trial court judge, and there is no information in the record that would allow us to evaluate her claims,’’ Lenk wrote.

“Because she raises these claims for the first time on appeal, they have been waived.”

The SJC did approve the six-month jail sentence and other probationary conditions Yee imposed after Obi, who is in her 70s and a long-time landlord, was convicted of assault and battery on Gilhan Suliman, who was a third-floor tenant for a short time in 2012.

Obi’s appellate attorney, Kimberly M. Peterson, was reviewing the ruling and had no immediate comment.

In the Somerville courthouse, Yee ordered that Obi attend “an introductory class on Islam, and to provide her probation officer with written documentation that she had done so’’ and provide all future tenants with a written notice that she had been convicted of criminally assaulting one of her tenants.

He also ordered Obi to serve six months in the Middlesex County House of Correction.

“You have to respect the rights of people of the Muslim faith. You have to respect all people.’’ Yee told Obi, according to the SJC.

The SJC concluded that all objections raised by Obi were legally unconvincing, and the court upheld both her conviction and Yee’s sentence.

“We conclude that the judge did not abuse his discretion in imposing the sentence of incarceration or in requiring the defendant to provide written disclosure to prospective tenants as a condition of probation,’’ Lenk wrote. “Accordingly, we affirm.’’


Affirming the sharia, read the Judgment here.

From our original post on this sharia ruling: Judge orders landlord to enroll in course and learn Islam

“I want you to learn about the Muslim faith,” he said. “I want you to enroll and attend an introductory course on Islam.

“I do want you to understand people of the Muslim faith, and they need to be respected. They may worship Allah … but they need to be respected.”

Obi said in a phone interview that she believes Suliman had a vendetta against her because she refused to allow her to let more people live in her apartment.

“I’ve never, ever made a rude remark against her,” she said.

Why would I do that? I have three Muslims living in the house now.”

Obi also said she believes Suliman hates her because she is a Christian.

Suliman did not respond to messages left at her home and workplace.

Obi’s lawyer argues the probation condition that she learn about the Muslim faith “burdens Dr. Obi’s free exercise of religion.”


And as we closed that post Landlords, think twice before you rent to kufr-hating Muslims.

 

Massachusetts: Smiling Muslim Mom at Barnes & Noble is Daughter of Convicted Islamic Terrorist

Source: Smiling Muslim Mom at Barnes & Noble is the Daughter of Convicted Islamic Jihad Terrorist – CounterJihad

In a time of heightened terrorism and political tension people are looking for stories of compassion and acts of kindness that will bring joy to their day. It initially appeared they found one when a Jewish man at a Barnes & Noble went up to a Muslim woman and her kids “and conveyed a heartfelt apology for the general anti-Muslim sentiment in our society today. He had tears in his eyes and told me [Muslim woman] that it must be so hard to turn on the news, that he feels awful about the bigotry my kids might one day experience, and that as a Jewish man whose parents didn’t speak any English growing up, he personally understands what it feels like to be rejected and discriminated against,” stated the woman on Facebook.

The Jerusalem Post also reports that the Jewish man, named Lenny, purchased gifts for the woman’s girls at the store. However, the smiling mother has a darker side.

The Muslim woman, Leena Al-Arian, is the daughter of Sami Al-Arian – a man who has been involved with the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and a man U.S. District Court Judge James Moody labeled as a “master manipulator[.]” Leena is also a radical Palestinian activist with Muslim Brotherhood connections as Arutz Sheva implies:

While studying at the University of South Florida, Leena served as Vice President of the radical Muslim Students Association. She also maintained a blog during this period, ranting against the State of Israel, Zionism, and Holocaust education.

“I am just so tired of reading blatantly biased writings on the Holocaust… [T]he thought of sitting through that nauseating three-hour class makes me want to put a bullet through my head. I am sick of the likes of propagandists such as Elie Wiesel, Rubenstein, and others who continue to exploit the tragedy of the Holocaust to justify the continued, unjustifiable suffering of the Palestinians,” Leena wrote in 2004.

She’s not quite the sweet mother portrayed in the news, right?

The whole Barnes & Noble incident is indicative of how the media and academia pumps the ‘Islamophobia’ narrative so much that it guilt trips people like Lenny into apologizing for something that is largely fictionalized. Worse yet, in this instance Lenny apologized to an Israel bashing, Islamist with terrorist sympathies (unbeknown to him). It’s Islamists who are the ones deceptively pushing this ‘Islamophobia’ narrative to the media as a tactic that not only switches the blame from the perpetrator (radical Islam) to the victim (general public), but also gives Islam a special protected status in order to stifle criticism of Islamism. Hopefully the incident had a positive impact in making Leena feel ashamed of her past anti-Semitic attitudes and comments, but it likely just confirmed that her activism is working.

Muslim from Terror-linked CAIR-Jamaat ul Fuqra Announces Intention to Run for Governor

By Ryan Mauro

Tahirah Amatul-Wadud, an official with both the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Massachusetts chapter and the Muslims of the Americas (a rebranding of the Jamaat ul-Fuqra terrorist group), has announced her intention to run for governor.

She currently lives in Massachusetts, where Republican Governor Charlie Baker will be running for re-election in 2018. It is unclear if Wadud meant that that she’d run in the next cycle.

Amatul-Wadud is currently the general counsel for the Muslims of the Americas, whose spiritual leader is a radical cleric named Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gillani in Pakistan. The organization was previously known as Jamaat ul-Fuqra, when it carried out terrorist attacks in the 1980s and early 1990s.

A 2007 FBI report  obtained by the Clarion Project states “the documented propensity for violence by this organization supports the belief the leadership of the MOA extols membership to pursue a policy of jihad or holy war against individuals or groups it considers enemies of Islam, which includes the U.S. Government.”

When Amatul-Wadud made her announcement, she immediately tweeted to Syeda Zainab Gillani, who praised her for the decision. Gillani’s twitter displays a photo of Sheikh Gillani and Hussain Adams, chief executive officer of MOA and son of convicted Fuqra terrorist, Barry Adams.

Amatul-Wadud is also a board member for the Massachusetts branch of CAIR, which the Justice Department has labeled an unindicted co-conspirator in a terrorism-financing trial. CAIR is also identified by the Justice Department as an entity of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. The United Arab Emirates designated CAIR as a terrorist organization when it cracked down on Islamist extremism and banned the Muslim Brotherhood.

Amatul-Wadud’s status as a joint CAIR/Fuqra official reflects growing ties between the two organizations.

Shockingly, Amatul-Wadud was invited to a White House event celebrating activists for religious pluralism in December. She is also on the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women, which interestingly doesn’t mention her connection to MOA/Fuqra (but does mention her status as a CAIR official).

Not to be outdone, Bernie Sanders Delegate is Member of Jamaat ul Fuqra Terror Cult.

Islamic Proselytizing at Massachusetts General Hospital

This was given to patients with their menus at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

I believe these were delivered with the trays of food, but that wasn’t clear.

The Food Service staff on the Oncology floor are all Muslim.

I wonder who cooks the bacon there?

I would also like to see their Easter and Christmas stories and blessings for Christ!

I was shocked and disgusted that this is allowed.

Syrian “refugee” in US two months, sexually assaults 13-year-old girl at Lowell, Mass. pool

So it begins.

LOWELL — A 22-year-old Syrian refugee is behind bars after only two months in the United States after he was accused Thursday night of inappropriately touching a 13-year-old girl at a state-run swimming pool in Lowell.

In Lowell District Court on Friday, Emad Hasso, of Lowell, was ordered held on $25,000 cash bail after pleading not guilty via an interpreter to one count of indecent assault and battery on someone under 16.

Judge Stacy Fortes set the bail over the defense attorney’s objections, because Hasso’s only ties to this country are his family members with whom he lives.

Prosecutor Sam Miller said that around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, the 13-year-old Lowell girl was at the Raymond Lord Memorial Pool at the North Common Park in Lowell when she said a man approached her, touched her upper thigh and asked her age.

The girl told him she was too young for him and walked away, Miller said.

The man, who was later identified as Hasso, allegedly began to follow the girl around the pool and approached her again when she was swimming, touching her upper thigh and again asking her age.

The girl responded that she was a “little kid, leave me alone,” Miller said.

Other people at the pool, including the lifeguard, saw some of the interaction between Hasso and the alleged victim, and intervened, Miller said.

Police said the incident may have been captured on video security cameras at the pool.

When questioned by the Massachusetts Environmental Police, who oversee state pools operated by the state Department of Conservation and Recreation, Hasso indicated he had been in the U.S. for about two months.

Defense attorney William Kittredge said Hasso, who speaks little English, receives assistance from the International Institute of New England, a nonprofit group with an office in Lowell that offers information and resources to refugees and immigrants.

Kittredge said Hasso told him that while he was swimming in the pool he may have “accidentally bumped” the girl, but he denies inappropriately touching the teen or speaking to her.

During a hearing in which the girl’s mother was granted a harassment order on behalf of her daughter, Hasso used the interpreter to tell the judge, “First of all, I don’t speak the language and I haven’t spoke to her.”

Fortes ordered that Hasso have no contact with anyone under 16, except for family members, stay away from the victim, the Lord pool and all DCR properties.

Hasso is scheduled for a pretrial conference on July 29.


The Muslim rapefugees are here and tens of thousands more are coming…for your daughters…whether you believe it or not. Do not expect the government or media (redundant?) to protect or warn you.


Update from WND:  City rips secret planting of Syrian ‘refugees’

Hasso is part of one of four Syrian families resettled by the International Institute from October 2015 through July.

Hasso’s family was resettled into 82 Willie St. in the city’s Acre neighborhood, the Sun reported. A man who answered the door at that address Monday evening provided a piece of paper to the Sun reporter Amelia Pak Harvey, indicating that he did not speak English.

City Manager Kevin Murphy said he’d like to receive regular numbers from the federal contractor that resettles refugees in the city. The International Institute subcontracts with the main federal contractor, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, or USCRI, to deliver refugees to Lowell.

The city does not know when or from where refugees come to Lowell, Murphy said, and is only made aware of them in instances like this one where a refugee gets arrested or otherwise singled out for bad behavior.

“I think we’ll reach out to the International Institute to see if they could cooperate with us in the future by letting us know when they relocate individuals to Lowell,” Murphy said.

Secrecy of refugee program a widespread problem

Refugee watchdog Ann Corcoran, who has been following the federal refugee program for nearly nine years, said lack of transparency is the most oft-cited issue by critics, which has included many mayors and governors.

“This is the way they have been running the program forever. They arrogantly have been operating in secrecy for two decades, under the arrogant assumption that we the taxpayers don’t deserve to know what is going into our communities, what the costs are, what the security risks are, and so forth,” Corcoran told WND.

Boston: ISIS suspects ‘tried to organize beheadings of non-believers from jail’

Source: ISIS suspect Nicholas Rovinski ‘tried to organize beheadings of non-believers from jail’ | Daily Mail Online   h/t thereligionofpeace.com

A New England ISIS suspect tried to organise the beheadings of ‘non-believers’ from inside jail while awaiting trial on terror charges, prosecutors claim.

Nicholas Rovinski of Warwick, Rhode Island and his co-accused David Wright of Everett, Massachusetts were arrested and charged in June 2015 with providing material support to ISIS.

However, following a hearing at US District Court in Boston on Thursday, the pair were also charged with plotting to kill conservative blogger Pamela Geller.

Prosecutors allege Rovinski and Wright received instructions from a foreign-based ISIS recruiter.

Rovinski and Wright both pleaded not guilty to the terrorism charges.

The court heard the pair allegedly plotted with Wright’s uncle Usaamah Rahim to behead blogger Pamela Geller, who is known for provoking Muslims. The plot was not carried out.

Thursday’s indictment says ISIS recruiter and hacker Junaid Hussain communicated instructions about the plot directly to Rahim from overseas in May 2015. It says Rahim then told his nephew.

Hussain was killed in a US drone strike in Syria in August. The US military has said Hussain had been recruiting sympathizers in the West to carry out lone-wolf terrorist attacks.

Rahim was killed June 2 by investigators who say he lunged at them with a knife when they approached him in Boston.

According to the indictment, even from jail, Rovinski has tried to recruit people to help carry out plans for violent attacks in the United States, including to decapitate non-believers.

Geller last year organized a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest that ended in gunfire in Garland, Texas, with two Muslim gunmen shot to death by police. She has spearheaded scores of events across the nation to decry Islamic extremism.

According to the new indictment, Rovinski has continued to support Islamic State while in jail by trying to recruit others to ‘decapitate non-believers’ and take down the U.S. government and by writing a new pledge of support to the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, on the back of his own criminal complaint.

Rovinski and Wright pleaded not guilty to the original charge of conspiring to provide material support to a designated terrorist organization after they were arrested in June, and they were due to face trial in February 2017.

According to the new indictment, Rovinski and Wright plotted their attacks with Wright’s uncle, Usaamah Abdullah Rahim, who was shot dead by law enforcement officers last June when Boston police and agents for the Federal Bureau of Investigation approached him and he threatened them with a knife.

The indictment accused Rahim of beginning communication one month before he was shot with a British member of Islamic State, Junaid Hussain. Hussain was believed by government sources to be the leader of CyberCaliphate, a hacking group that last year attacked a Twitter account belonging to the Pentagon.

The indictment said Hussain gave Rahim instructions that Rahim passed on to Wright about targeting individuals such as Pamela Geller, organizer of a ‘Draw Mohammad’ cartoon competition in Garland, Texas, that was attacked by two gunmen last May.

Hussain was killed in a US drone strike in Syria last August.

Wright has pleaded not guilty to charges he alone faced of obstructing justice and conspiring to obstruct justice after he was accused of instructing Rahim to delete his phone and laptop data.

Wright and Rovinski now face maximum sentences of life in prison as a result of the new charges announced on Thursday. They are scheduled to be arraigned on April 28, according to the docket report in their case.

Harvard Student Who Asked Former Israeli FM Why She Was ‘So SMELLY’ was… a MUSLIM

The real story is Harvard’s refusal to release the name. The left and its unconditional defense and protection of savages.

“Harvard Law School is declining to disclose the identity of a student who repeatedly accused former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni of being ‘smelly’ during a public discussion, a description many have described as anti-Semitic.” (source)

Shocka. It was a Muslim. But if an Islamic dictator were there (like Ahmadinejad at Columbia), they would be kissing his shoe.

Meet The Brilliant Harvard Student Who Called A Jewish Politician ‘Smelly’ By Blake Neff, Daily Caller, April 22, 2016:

At an event run by Harvard’s Program on Negotiation last Thursday, current Zionist Union MK and former foreign minister Tzipi Livni was confronted with an unusual, but nonetheless noxious question from a Harvard Law School student in attendance.

In a panel section of the event, co-sponsored by the Jewish Law Students Association and Harvard Hillel, the student asked Livni: “How is it that you are so smelly?”

When his pungent question only elicited curious looks, he clarified: “Oh, it’s a question about the odor of Ms. Tzipi Livni, very smelly, and I was just wondering.” (J Post)

Harking back to the old anti-Semitic trope of the “smelly Jew” was roundly condemned in the Harvard Law Record on Tuesday.

The name of the Harvard student who asked a visiting Israeli politician why she was “so smelly” has been revealed. The student is a leader in Harvard’s Arab community with a history of anti-Israeli activism. Not only that, but he’s also a man looking for a job, making his public stunt look like an incredibly bad idea.

Last week, Husam El-Qoulaq rudely disrupted a panel featuring Israeli politician Tzipi Livni to ask her why she was “so smelly.”

“I’m question (sic) about the odor of Tzipi Livni, very smelly, and I was just wondering,” El-Qoulaq said to a confused panel.
