Brother of San Bernardino terrorist, 2 others arrested for immigration fraud

Three people linked to the couple whose December shooting rampage in San Bernardino left 14 people dead were arrested Thursday on conspiracy, marriage fraud and other charges.

The three include Syed Raheel Farook, brother of Syed Rizwan Farook who with his wife, Tashfeen Malik, also wounded 22 people before both died in a police shootout.

Raheel Farook, 31, his wife, Tatiana Farook, 31, and her sister Mariya Chernynk were named in a five-count indictment describing a scheme designed to allow Chernykh to syed-raheel-farookremain in the U.S. Chernykh, 26, is married to Enrique Marquez, Jr., who has been awaiting trial since December on charges of conspiring with Rizwan Farook in 2011 and 2012 to provide material support to terrorists.

Malik and Rizwan Farook opened fire at a holiday party at San Bernardino’s Inland Regional Center on Dec. 2. Syed Rizwan Farook had worked as an environmental health specialist for San Bernardino County for five years and had been at the party with his co-workers before leaving and returning with his wife, four guns and a bomb.

FBI Director James Comey described the couple as “homegrown violent extremists” who had become radicalized over a period of years but were not part of a foreign militant group. The Islamic State claimed the man-and-wife team, who left behind a 6-month-old daughter, were supporters of the organization.

All the latest charges stem from the investigation into the attack, U.S. Attorney Eileen Decker said in a statement.

“This is the latest step in the comprehensive investigation into the horrific attacks in San Bernardino,” Decker said. “We owe the victims and the entire community of San Bernardino a thorough investigation that uncovers all criminal activity surrounding these events.”

The investigation determined that Marquez agreed to marry Chernykh so she could obtain immigration benefits otherwise not available to her because she is a Russian citizen without legal status in the United States. Marquez, in addition to the terror-related counts, also is charged with marriage fraud and making a false statement on immigration documents related to an alleged sham marriage.

The indictment alleges Marquez received money from Chernykh to enter into the sham marriage.

Raheel Farook and Tatiana Farook conspired by witnessing Marquez and Chernykh’s wedding, taking staged family pictures of Marquez and Chernykh, establishing a joint checking account for the couple and creating a back-dated lease for Marquez and Chernykh to create the illusion that they shared a marital residence.

The indictment charges all three in a conspiracy to knowingly make false statements under oath with respect to immigration documents, a charge that carries a statutory maximum sentence of five years in federal prison. Chernykh also faces a charge of document fraud, perjury and two counts of lying to federal agents. Those charges carry a combined maximum sentence of 25 years.

In February, the FBI conducted an hours-long search of Raheel Farook’s home in Corona, Calif. Authorities declined to reveal the target of the search or what was found. Later that month the case made national news again when the Justice Department went to court trying to force Apple to break into Rizwan Farook’s iPhone. The FBI ultimately paid an outside party more than $1.3 million to hack the phone.

Rutgers Student Paper Sharia-Compliant, Destroys All Copies with Muhammad Cartoon

By Robert Spencer

The April 5, 2016 issue of The Gleaner, the student paper of Rutgers University–Camden, published a cartoon of Muhammad, Buddha and Jesus in a bar. Its content, however, cannot be known at this point, because at the behest of Muslims on campus, and in a case fraught with implications for the health of the freedom of speech today, the entire issue has been deep-sixed.

Two weeks after the cartoon was published, the April 19 issue of The Gleaner contained a letter from the Muslim Brotherhood campus group, the Muslim Students Association, saying that it found the image offensive and asking The Gleaner to remove the image from the April 5 issue and circulate a new edition of that issue without it. The MSA letter claims that Christians and Jews on campus told MSA members that they, too, found the image offensive.

The MSA letter states: “Even though freedom of speech and press is emphasized and is something all of us value as proud Americans, the University prides itself on diversity of people of different faith and backgrounds so we feel that it is necessary to respect those faiths and backgrounds by honoring their beliefs.”

The April 19 Gleaner also contains a response to the MSA letter, written by Christopher Church, the Editor-in-Chief of The Gleaner. Church apologizes to the MSA and agrees to meet with it “so that we can rectify this issue and ensure that it doesn’t happen again.” He also agrees to remove any copies of the offending April 5 issue from the Gleaner boxes around campus and destroy them.

The Jihad Watch reader who alerted me to this sums up what is wrong here:

1. Freedom of speech is a Constitutional right. It is not negated by someone’s taking offense. This could have been and should have been a chance for Rutgers and The Gleaner to explain why the freedom of speech must be protected as our fundamental bulwark against tyranny, and why that means that we must all learn to put up with material that offends us.

2. Once a group’s feeling offended is taken as decisive, it may begin to take offense at other aspects of campus life it finds offensive. In the MSA’s case, it may begin getting offended at men and women sharing classrooms or coeds wearing tight jeans on campus.

3. In light of the violent attacks on those who have depicted Muhammad, The Gleaner by removing the image is bowing to the implicit threat of violence — which only in the long run encourages more violence. Rutgers’ Art Library recently featured an “artwork” depicting Jesus on a dartboard. It was ultimately removed, but not because it offended Christians. No one cares if Christians are offended: Rutgers officials know that offended Christians won’t murder them. Their solicitousness toward the MSA, by contrast, reveals that they know offended Muslims might very well kill them, and rather than stand up for the freedom of speech and against this kind of bullying, they signal their willingness to surrender and fall into line, accepting Sharia restrictions on speech.

Imagine how Rutgers would react if its Art Library had displayed, instead of this Jesus-on-a-dartboard “artwork,” a cartoon of Muhammad. The air would have been thick with cries of “Islamophobia.” Fragile Leftist students would be running for their safe spaces. The university would be instituting mandatory seminars designed to inculcate the proper “respect” that one must show for “The Other” so as to avoid charges of “racism” and “bigotry.”

The double standard is stark: Jesus crucified on a dartboard is art – and what’s more, it’s courageous. One Rutgers student chortled on Facebook that the dartboard “art” was “hilarious,” and crowed that “we don’t have to cater to the wills of the Church or any denomination of Christianity or religion.” Those who complained would be admonished: Don’t you respect the freedom of expression, you right-wing bigot?

A cartoon of Muhammad, on the other hand, even one as innocuous as the one in The Gleaner appears to have been — that’s an outrage. No one was crowing in that instance about not having to cater to the wills of the mosque. On the contrary, the message was clear: Don’t you respect Muslims as human beings, you right-wing bigot?

This is the kind of “respect” being irrationally violent will win you. Rutgers officials knew that Christians weren’t going to kill them, and that they could mock Christianity with impunity. They would only start blathering about “respect” when it comes to Islam. This respect won at the point of a sword does not bode well for the future of free expression in the West.

Muslim Gets 25 Years for Murdering U.S. Diplomat, Wounding Marine

Not sure why this was a “conspiracy to murder” charge. He shot and killed U.S. diplomat William Bultemeier at point blank range.

Source: Department of Justice  h/t: Blazing Cat Fur

Alhassane Ould Mohamed, aka Cheibani, 46, a citizen of Mali, was sentenced to 25 years in prison in the Eastern District of New York for conspiring to murder a U.S. diplomat stationed in Niamey, Niger, in December 2000.

According to court filings and facts presented during the plea proceeding, in the early morning hours of Dec. 23, 2000, Mohamed and a co-conspirator accosted a group of employees of the U.S. Embassy in Niger as they left a restaurant in Niamey.  Carrying a pistol and an AK-47 assault rifle, the two men approached U.S. diplomat William Bultemeier as he was about to enter his car, a white sport-utility vehicle bearing diplomatic license plates clearly indicating that it belonged to the U.S. Embassy.  After demanding that Bultemeier turn over the keys to the diplomatic vehicle, the defendant and his co-conspirator shot Bultemeier and Staff Sergeant Christopher McNeely, the Marine Detachment Commander for the U.S. Embassy in Niger at the time, who had run to Bultemeier’s aid.  Mohamed and his fellow assailant then drove away in the U.S. Embassy vehicle.

Bultemeier died of the injuries inflicted by the gunshot wounds.  Staff Sergeant McNeely survived the shooting and later retired from the Marine Corps as a Master Sergeant.

The defendant and his confederate murdered U.S. diplomat William Bultemeier in cold blood and seriously injured U.S. Marine Staff Sergeant Christopher McNeely, who bravely risked his life to attempt to save his colleague,” said U.S. Attorney Capers.  “Although nothing can undo the pain caused by the defendant’s violent actions, we hope the victims’ families can take some measure of solace in knowing that the defendant is being held accountable for the senseless murder of Mr. Bultemeier and the attack on Staff Sergeant McNeely.  The United States takes the protection of its employees stationed overseas very seriously and will continue to work tirelessly to bring those who harm our diplomats to justice.”

“Over the past 16 years, Cheibani evaded full accountability for his murderous actions in taking the life of a U.S. Diplomat,” said Assistant Director in Charge Rodriguez.  “U.S. employees working overseas understand there are certain risks in representing their government in foreign territories; however, a death sentence should not be one of them.

Muslim invasion, rapefugees force Munich Oktoberfest’s first-ever entrance checks

Source: Munich Oktoberfest to get first-ever entrance checks – The Local

Revellers hoping to join in the carousing at Munich Oktoberfest will have to pass through a check before entering the festival grounds this year, Munich authorities have said.

People hoping to enter the Theresienwiese – the large open space where Oktoberfest is held each year – will have to pass through security checks, including bag checks, at all the entrances, the Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) reported on Thursday.

And as well as bringing in more security guards this year, city managers say that they won’t hesitate to block off the entire festival grounds with fences if things get too crowded.

Last but not least, the huge beer-hall tents run by Munich breweries that attract thousands of drinkers will open an hour later than usual at 10am.

‘Changed global context’

Oktoberfest – which Bavarians hail as the world’s largest folk festival (Volksfest) celebrated since 1810 – is being organized this year in the shadow of troubling events.

Munich authorities believe they must boost security after the sexual assaults in Cologne on New Year’s Eve, as well as the danger of terrorist attacks like those which hit Paris and Brussels in November and March.

The Bavarian capital’s main train station was itself on lockdown on New Year’s Eve after police said they had received credible intelligence of a terrorist bomb threat.

Oktoberfest also became the target of a bombing by a far-right terrorist in 1980 which killed 13 people including the bomber.

But in recent years the city has also had to deal with ever-increasing numbers of visitors from across Germany, Europe and the globe to its world-famous two-week-long revels.

Overcrowding and drunken misbehaviour and crime have also long been a cause of annoyance to Müncheners faced with the annual influx of booze-happy guests.

“No-one should be afraid to go to the Wiesn [Theresienwiese],” deputy Munich mayor Josef Schmid told the SZ earlier in April.

“There is no concrete danger. But of course we’re adjusting ourselves to the changed global context.”

The Citadel punishes cadet who exposed school’s pending submission to sharia

Source: Citadel cadet punished after leaking hijab story – Post and Courier  h/t BNI

A cadet at The Citadel said he is being punished with 33 hours of marching after he revealed in a Facebook post that the school was considering allowing an incoming cadet to wear a hijab in uniform.

The cadet, senior political science student Nick Pinelli, said officials at the public military college originally sought to charge him with behavior “unbecoming to a cadet,” a Class I offense that can lead to dismissal under the school’s disciplinary code. Instead, he said the school reduced the charge to “gross poor judgment” and handed him the maximum punishment: 40 “tours,” each consisting of 50 minutes of silent marching with a rifle in a barracks quadrangle. Pinelli, who has also been working as an intern for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, must complete the tours before graduating on May 7.

Pinelli’s April 13 Facebook post led to national media coverage and sparked heated debate among Citadel cadets and alumni about the issue of the hijab, a head covering worn by some Muslim women. The Citadel is considering accepting a Muslim freshman who has asked to be able to wear the head scarf — an exception to the school’s military dress code. No final decision has been made on the issue.

“If I valued liberal ideology, I would go to UC Berkeley,” Pinelli wrote in the post.

Col. Brett Ashworth, a spokesman for The Citadel, declined to comment on whether Pinelli is being punished. “Due to FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), I can’t discuss individual disciplinary action,” Ashworth wrote in an email.

The college has not announced whether it will allow the incoming cadet to wear a hijab.

Minnesota: Another Muslim Pleads Guilty in Jihad-Recruiting Case

Source: Another Defendant in Terror-Recruiting Case Pleads Guilty | KSTP TV – Minneapolis and St. Paul

A Minnesota man arrested in 2015 on charges he and several others were trying to assist the Islamic State terror group pleaded guilty Monday in federal court.

Hamza Ahmed pleaded guilty to conspiracy and student financial fraud. He could get up to 20 years in prison.

He told the judge today that he originally pleaded ‘not guilty’ to appease his mother.  He said she wanted to see his case go to trial and “she was a big influence in that.”

Judge Michael Davis ordered a pre-sentence investigation report, and will schedule a sentencing hearing after it is complete.

Ahmed was stopped at a New York City airport in November as he and three others were attempting to travel to Syria. Ahmed has been indicted on charges of lying to the FBI during a terrorism investigation, conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State terror group, and attempting to provide material support, according to federal charges.

There are three other suspects still awaiting trial in this case, six others have changed their pleas.

Most recently, co-defendent Adnan Abdihamid Farah also pleaded guilty April 14.

Feds push Islam in class to stop supposed ‘bullying’ of Muslims

Taxation for Islamization. What are your children being brainwashed with in class? Source: Feds push Islam in class to stop ‘bullying’ of Muslims

The U.S. Department of Education has posted instructions to educators on its website imploring them to be aware of their responsibilities to protect Muslim students from “bullying.”

The DOE post urged teachers to “be sure to include Islam” in classroom discussions during “social studies, current events, children’s literature.”

The post is seen as so inflammatory by some Christian groups that a Change.org petition drive has been launched demanding the DOE “halt its efforts to Islamize school children.”

Virginia-based Christian Action Network announced it is collecting petitions to present to U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr.

Without providing any scientific data that bullying of Muslims is a problem in public schools or defining what type of behavior it would consider to be “bullying,” the DOE post says Muslim students face more bullying than at any time since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

Read the DOE blog post titled “Protecting our Muslim Youth from Bullying: The Role of the Educator” or see screenshot below.

The only source the DOE gives for its claim that bullying of Muslim students is a growing problem in schools is a December 2015 article by the Jewish Anti-Defamation League that lists 10 incidents nationwide. Of those 10, the ADL lists two assaults, three cases of vandalism of mosques and five cases of alleged “threats and intimidation.” Only one of the 10 incidents involved a student or school.

One of the “threats” listed by ADL involved “anti-Muslim” fliers posted in Fredricksburg, Virginia, in advance of a public hearing about a proposed new mosque that read, “No Jihad in Fredricksburg.”

Readers not impressed

The DOE blog post sparked nine reader comments before comments were shut down — all but one of the commenters chastised the federal bureaucracy for sticking its nose into the issue.

“Islam is not merely a religion; it is also a totalitarian, supremacist political ideology,” wrote Joanne Meegan, RN. “This kind of nonsense is one of many reasons why the U.S. Department of Education should be dismantled.”

“Why is the bullying of Muslims any more important than the bullying of other kids,” wrote another blogger named Steve.

Florine Isaacs wrote: “This is totally inappropriate for any educator to bring up in class. That is a parent’s job because it has to do with religion. You have already overstepped your role by introducing Islam into the classroom in the first place.”

Americans who ‘associate terrorism with Islam’ are ignorant

All of the alleged bullying of Muslims is based on a “lack of information among the public about Islam,” the DOE said in its post, “and a tendency to associate Islam with terrorism.”

Due to this ignorance on the part of the American public, the DOE says, “there has been an increase in expressions and incidents targeting the Muslim community …”

The post continues as follows:

“There has also been an increased wave of anti-Muslim sentiment in our public discourse, political rhetoric and everyday interactions. Schools have not been immune. Youth have been called, ‘terrorists’ or ‘ISIS.’ There have been physical attacks, verbal threats, and social isolation. These are just a few of the many ways anti-Muslim sentiment has impacted schoolchildren who are Muslim or perceived to be Muslim.”
