Massachusetts: Terror-linked CAIR Intertwines with Terror-Linked Jamaat ul-Fuqra

cair-mbhood-linksSource: CAIR Intertwines with US-based, Terror-Linked Fuqra Group

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its “moderate” image is suffering from a self-inflicted wound now it has become intertwined with the Muslims of the Americas, a radical anti-Semitic front for the Jamaat ul-Fuqra terrorist group.

CAIR’s Massachusetts chapter now shares an official with MOA and two CAIR officials spoke at MOA’s International Islamophobia Conference.

The Massachusetts chapter of CAIR recently chose MOA’s general counsel, Tahirah Amatul Wadud, as a board member. CAIR, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity banned for its own terror links in the UAE, wisely omitted mention of MOA. It described her generically as a “general counsel for a New York Muslim congregation.”

Wadud reportedly posted an article by MOA’s Pakistan-based leader, Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, on her Facebook claiming the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) is a puppet of the British government and a Jewish conspiracy perpetrated the attacks on Pearl Harbor and September 11, 2001. The Clarion Project was the first to report on the inflammatory article.

Jamaat ul-Fuqra is led by Gilani. It is best known for a series of terrorist attacks and plots in the 1980s and early 1990s and for setting up “Islamic villages” across the country, including at least two that were shut down by the authorities. These “villages” are known to have been used for guerilla warfare training. Fuqra now goes primarily by the name of Muslims of the Americas (MOA), among other names. The group says it has 22 such “villages” in the U.S.

The Clarion Project obtained video of female members receiving basic paramilitary instruction in military fatigue at its “Islamberg” headquarters in New York. The date of the footage is cut off, only stating “Jan. 28 20,” presumably meaning it was made in 2000 or after. The best explanation MOA members have come up with is that it was a “self-defense class.”

Boston: Muslim immigrant arrested, again, for attacking bus driver

Noor mugshot from transit police

At least his third arrest – why hasn’t he been deported yet? via: MBTA police arrest man for allegedly attacking driver – The Boston Globe

A Malden man allegedly assaulted an MBTA bus driver and threatened transit police officers at Malden Center station on Tuesday, leading to his third arrest at an Orange Line stop since 2013.

Mohamed Noor, 29, refused to pay his bus fare when boarding at the Malden Center station in the Commercial Street busway at around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, Transit Police said in a statement.

When the driver told Noor he would have to get off the bus if he did not pay, Noor allegedly threatened the driver, then hit him in the face and head. Noor then left the station, police said.

Officers soon caught up with Noor, and police said he began acting combative, threatening them with physical harm.

He was arrested and charged with assaulting a public employee and disorderly conduct.

“MBTA employees, particularly bus operators provide a valuable service to the public and they do not deserve to be treated in such a brutal manner,” said Transit Police Superintendent Richard Sullivan. “The safety of MBTA employees is one of our top priorities. We will stay involved in this case to insure Mr. Noor is held accountable.

Noor has been arrested by transit police twice before for assault at an Orange Line T station, according to statements posted online by transit police.

In August 2014, Noor beat and attempted to rob a man at the Sullivan Square station, police said. In October 2013, he punched a 69-year-old MBTA employee and proceeded to kick him on the ground in the Roxbury Crossing station, police said in a statement.

Noor was arraigned Tuesday in Malden District Court for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, interfering with a bus driver, disorderly conduct, and threatening to commit a crime, said Liz Vlock, a spokeswoman for Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan.

A judge ordered Noor to stay away from the driver of the bus, his bus route, and all MBTA stations in Malden, Vlock said.

Noor was ordered held on a separate probation warrant from Roxbury Municipal Court, Vlock said. He is scheduled to return to court in Malden on Feb. 9.

Attorney Marian Ryan’s office said. He was held on a probation warrant out of Roxbury District Court.

In October 2013, Noor was arrested for punching and kicking an elderly bus driver in Roxbury. He was sentenced to 2 1⁄2 years in prison, with the sentence suspended for four years, court records show.

Then, in August 2014 he attacked a man in the Sullivan Square MBTA station, savagely beating the 53-year-old until the victim ran onto a bus, Transit police said in a statement. The victim in that case did not testify, however, Noor was held in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody for a time, court records show.

An official with ICE said they have not placed a detainer on him, but added “ICE is closely monitoring the situation.”

Boston: Chief Justice Supports Mosque Hosting Clerics Who Promote Female Sex Slavery, Honor Killings

via Islamic Society Of Boston Hosts Conference Keynoted By Preachers Who Promote Female Sex Slavery, Honor Killings, And Anti-Semitism | The Daily Caller

Last week, the Chief Justice of Massachusetts’s Supreme Judicial Court, Ralph Gants, spoke before the Islamic Society of Boston. He affirmed his support for the mosque, telling congregants that, “you do not stand alone.” Gants is just one of several high profile visits to the mosque in recent months, which have included the Mayor of Boston, the Boston Police Commissioner and local rabbis and reverends.

The Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), however, has a long history of extremism. It was founded by the Al Qaeda operative Abdulrahman Alamoudi, who was jailed in 2004 for participating in a Libyan plot to assassinate Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah. The ISB’s listed trustees have included prominent Islamist operatives, including Yusuf Al Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the global Muslim Brotherhood. And in 2008, the Muslim American Society, which runs the ISB’s Cultural Center, was labelled by federal prosecutors “as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.”

Today, the ISB claims it is a “model for civic engagement,” and works to “strengthen community relations.” Why, then, does it continue to promote some of America’s most radical preachers?

On October 30, the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) hosted a two-day conference on behalf of an extremist Islamic organization called the Qalam Institute. Two of the keynote speakers are notorious fundamentalist preachers.

One such speaker, Mufti Hussain Kamani, has called upon God to “reward the martyrs of Palestine.” And in a pamphlet titled, ‘The Prophetic Code,’ published by the Qalam Institute, Kamani cites Quranic verse and commentary, in which he tells Muslims: “do not resemble the Jews.” Parents are also advised to “beat” their children “if they do not [pray].”

In a talk titled “Sex, Masturbation and Islam,” Kamani explains that a Muslim man must only fulfil his sexual desires “with his spouse…[or] with a female slave that belongs to him.” ‬‬

Those who commit adultery or have sex outside of marriage, Kamani also states, must be “stoned to death.”

During another talk on ‘Rights Of A Wife In Islam,’ Kamani explains “how to deal with the women folk” and how Muslim husbands can “train their wives.” Beating women, Kamani advises, should only be a “last measure.”

Another speaker at the conference is the founder of the Qalam Institute, Abdul Nasir Jangda, who frequently presents sermons about the iniquities and treacheries of the Jews during the time of Islam’s Prophet. Jangda describes Jews in this period as a “really bad people” who opposed the peaceful message of Islam and “liked the trouble because they were able to pull the strings and maintain some type of advantage in the community through political maneuvering. … They were very hateful, very spiteful.”

According to detailed notes published by one of Jangda’s students during one of his seminars, Jangda also defended the use of female sex slaves within Islam. Jangda reportedly concluded that, “Slavery in Islam … is vastly different and superior morally and spiritually to the atrocious, obscene, and vile Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.”

Furthermore, Jangda apparently expressed support for the killing of apostates and adulterers; claimed that a wife cannot refuse her husband sex: “The thing to understand is that the husband has his set of divinely given rights one of which is the right to have his physical desires satisfied”; and called for people who drink alcohol to be beaten: “One of the largest causes of death in the United States is drunk driving. Such policies would help curb them immensely and avoid harm to the people at large.”

Over the past few months, the ISB has enjoyed high-profile political support, despite its continued promote of bigoted, extremist speakers. The ISB repeatedly claims to have rejected the fundamentalist beliefs of its founding trustees and former officials. Its continued embrace of some of America’s most radical preachers, however, suggests otherwise. When will Massachusetts politicians reject this politics of hate and instead work with moderate Muslim groups?

Probably around the same time the Koran and Islam are modified. Never.

Boston: Judge orders landlord to enroll in course and learn Islam

Boston strong-arm. Maybe the judge will go full sharia and order her arm chopped off.  But will he, or any other judge, force all Muslims who attack non-Muslims to learn about the religions of each of their victims?

Hussein Obama has sentenced us all to Islam. via Landlord ordered to learn about Islam after pushing Muslim tenant; did judge go too far? h/t

After a landlord was convicted of pushing her Muslim tenant down a flight of stairs, a judge ordered her to respect the rights of all Muslims and to take an introductory course on Islam. Now the highest court in Massachusetts is being asked to decide whether the judge violated the landlord’s constitutional rights.

The Supreme Judicial Court will hear arguments next month in a case that poses interesting legal questions at a time when the country is grappling with anti-Muslim backlash following deadly attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, California, both allegedly carried out by radical Muslims.

The case centers on Daisy Obi, a 73-year-old ordained minister from Nigeria who is the pastor of the Adonai Bible Center in Somerville, just north of Boston. In April 2012, Obi rented an apartment in her multi-family home to Gihan Suliman, her husband and five young children.

Suliman complained about the heat and electricity not always working, while Obi complained Suliman appeared to have 12 to 15 people living in the apartment at one point.

Suliman testified that about a month after she moved in, Obi stood on the stairs outside Suliman’s apartment screaming anti-Muslim insults.

The following month, while Suliman was taking her baby out of the car, she said Obi yelled anti-Muslim sentiments at her other children.

Then, about a month later, Suliman said Obi accused her of ringing her doorbell, shouted at her and pushed her. Suliman said she fell backward down 15 to 20 stairs, hitting her face on the banister, cutting her lip and tearing a ligament in her shoulder.


sharia judge?

While sentencing Obi last year, Judge Paul Yee Jr. called Obi “the landlord from hell” after pointing out that she had harassment prevention orders issued against her by two other tenants.

He sentenced her to two years in jail on the assault and battery charge for pushing Suliman but required her to serve only six months, with the remaining 18 months suspended if she complied with certain probation conditions.

“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 vehemently denied making any anti-Muslim statements to Suliman or pushing her. She testified she was inside her apartment praying when she heard a knock at the door from the police, who arrested her.

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.

Harvard ‘Islamic law’ librarian arrested for attempted child sexual assault

He was attending the Middle Eastern Islamic Librarian conference. Hussein Ahmad is likely a “well-vetted” immigrant of some sort. via Harvard librarian arrested on trip to Colorado to molest girl – Boulder Daily Camera

A Harvard University librarian was arrested after he traveled to Gilpin County with the intention of having sex with a teenage girl only to learn he had been corresponding with a deputy, authorities said Tuesday.

Yahya Hussein Ahmad Melhem, 47, was arrested for investigation of attempted sexual exploitation of a child, Internet sexual exploitation of a child, Internet luring of a child and attempted child sexual assault, all felony charges.

Melhem was released on a $10,000 bail. He could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

Michelle Deakin, spokeswoman for Harvard Law School, declined to comment about the charge, including his employment status.

Gilpin County deputies arrested Melhem on Friday in a sting in which a deputy posed as a teenager, according to a Tuesday news release by the sheriff’s office.

Melhem was in the Denver area attending a conference.

On Nov. 19, a male deputy was on a social networking site portraying himself as a teen when Melhem allegedly exchanged messages with him thinking he was a young girl.

Melhem texted that he would rent a car and drive to Black Hawk to meet her.

Melhem wrote a message asking the “girl” to show him “her intimate body parts via webcam.” He also displayed sexually graphic video of himself to the deputy believing he was a girl.


Melhem had worked as a librarian for Islamic Law at Harvard Law School, according to staffdirectories. He was in Denver to attend the Middle Eastern Islamic Librarian conference, according to the affidavit.

MacArthur Foundation awards $425,000 to Sharia project at Harvard Law

Clearly, the MacArthur Foundation is failing at its most basic of principles, as stated on their website:

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation supports creative people and effective institutions committed to building a more just, verdant, and peaceful world. In addition to selecting the MacArthur Fellows, the Foundation works to defend human rights…

Sharia law does just the opposite. Let them know the truth.

via: MacArthur Foundation awards $425,000 to SHARIAsource project led by Intisar Rabb – Harvard Law Today h/t TROP

The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation has awarded $425,000 over two years for the development of SHARIAsource—an online Islamic law resource founded and directed by Harvard Law School Professor Intisar Rabb, who is also a Susan S. and Kenneth L. Wallach Professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard.

SHARIAsource is built on a model of broad collaboration, calling on the resources of the Harvard Law School Library, other educational institutions, and expert scholars of Islamic law around the world to build a clearinghouse that collects the research and highlights the expertise and scholarship of each. The initiative is housed at Harvard Law School’s Islamic Legal Studies Program and operates in partnership with Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society, bringing together the substantive and technical expertise of both communities with an “expert crowd-sourced model” with contributions from experts in Islamic law as well as scholars of comparative constitutional law, legal history, and other related fields.

The SHARIAsource team of legal experts, scholars, and developers is led by Editor-in-Chief Intisar Rabb. She shared the major news of the MacArthur award at a project convening conference last month, at which some thirty scholarly, policy, and media experts met to chart the future of SHARIAsource. This grant is in addition to $400,000 from the Henry R. Luce Foundation, announced late last spring.

“Professor Rabb’s vision and commitment are the driving force behind this important effort to share primary sources of Islamic law and expert commentary from around the world,” said Martha Minow, dean of Harvard Law School. “SHARIAsource is a flagship project for ILSP, and this superb grant will ensure its effective development.”

“Never has it been more important to present the public with accurate, well-documented historical evidence about Islamic law. With misconceptions abounding, Professor Rabb’s impressive project has much to teach us all,” said Lizabeth Cohen, dean of the Radcliffe Institute. “I congratulate her on this endorsement of her pathbreaking work and am proud to have her as a Radcliffe Professor at Harvard, in residence as a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute this academic year.”

“The Berkman Center is committed to rigorous scholarship, developing innovative tools, and facilitating public discourse in its many forms,” said Urs Gasser, Berkman’s executive director. “SHARIAsource, with its entrepreneurial spirit, is a great example of this, and the MacArthur Foundation’s generous support will help sustain this important endeavor.”

The MacArthur Foundation Grant will allow SHARIAsource to further facilitate advanced scholarship and policy analysis relating to Islamic law, and to grow its online repository of primary source material. SHARIAsource is in an intensive growth and development phase with a public launch expected in 2016.

Intisar Rabb said: “We were delighted to receive this funding from MacArthur because it ensures that the vision I and many of us have for SHARIAsource can take shape in ways that will inform important academic, policy, and public conversations about Islamic law. We are so excited to move forward together with the network of scholars, students, coders, and other contributors to this effort.”

According to her biographical sketch, Rabb’s academic interests include Islamic law, American constitutional law, and American criminal law.

…she blames America for doing too little to address the hardships created by Katrina; she chides America for spending too little money on “fair and affordable housing measures, small business incentive programs, public welfare and social security plans, educational reforms and healthcare initiatives”; and she urges lawyers to provide pro bono legal services to criminals in American jails.

She’s profiting handsomely from her sharia.

Massachusetts: Saudi national arrested, terrorized 15-year old girl for sex

Likely a Muslim student visa scofflaw – with other victims. via Saudi national allegedly used lewd pictures to blackmail Danvers teenager – The Boston Globe

A Saudi national who attended college in Indiana is facing charges that he posed as a female online to obtain nude photos of a Danvers teenager and later threatened to distribute the pictures unless the girl agreed to have sex with him, officials said.

Abdulrahim Altalhi, 20, was indicted Wednesday on charges including attempted extortion, enticement, electronic enticement for prostitution, and posing a child in a state of nudity, according to Essex District Attorney Jonathan W. Blodgett’s office.

His Superior Court arraignment has not been scheduled, and he remains held on $750,000 bail. He pleaded not guilty earlier this month in Salem District Court.

According to authorities, Altalhi contacted the alleged victim online in January and persuaded the 15-year-old girl to send him nude photos. He allegedly used the pictures in an effort to blackmail “the victim to agree to have sex with a man, later identified as the defendant,” said a spokeswoman for Blodgett.

The girl’s family contacted police, and Altalhi was arrested before any sexual acts occurred, authorities said.

His lawyer, John Salsberg, said Altalhi was traveling back to school when he was taken into custody at a Chicago airport. The date of his arrest was unclear Friday.

Salsberg declined to discuss the allegations, except to say that Altalhi will plead not guilty in Superior Court.

Officials identified Altalhi as a student at the University of Evansville in Indiana, but a school spokesman said he did not enroll this semester.

Salsberg said Altalhi attended the university on a scholarship and comes from a “modest background” in Saudi Arabia.

“His parents were just here this last week,” Salsberg said. “He has their full support and love.”

Danvers police referred questions to Blodgett’s office.

 DANVERS, Mass. —A Danvers teenager was blackmailed into sending nude photos and videos of herself, leading to the arrest of a Saudi Arabian national, police said.
Police said Abdulrahim Altalhi, who was posing as a teenager from London, convinced the 15-year-old Danvers girl to send pictures and videos online.
He then threatened to send the pictures to friends and family if she didn’t send more, police said.According to court documents, he told the teen, “Don’t say anything you will regret.”

Police said they were able to use Facebook to track him down.

The teen went to police after he followed through with one of the threats, and sent pictures to her sister, police said.

That’s when the girl and her father went to police.

Altahli is now in jail and has been indicted by a grand jury on several charges.
