Congresswoman Introduces Bill to Stop Arming Islamic Terrorists

 

 

More via: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Introduces Legislation to Stop Arming Terrorists

Background: The Stop Arming Terrorists bill prohibits U.S. government funds from being used to support al-Qaeda, ISIS or other terrorist groups. In the same way that Congress passed the Boland Amendment to prohibit the funding and support to CIA backed-Nicaraguan Contras during the 1980’s, this bill would stop CIA or other Federal government activities in places like Syria by ensuring U.S. funds are not used to support al-Qaeda, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, ISIS, or other terrorist groups working with them. It would also prohibit the Federal government from funding assistance to countries that are directly or indirectly supporting those terrorist groups. The bill achieves this by:

  1. Making it illegal for any U.S. Federal government funds to be used to provide assistance covered in this bill to terrorists. The assistance covered includes weapons, munitions, weapons platforms, intelligence, logistics, training, and cash.

  2. Making it illegal for the U.S. government to provide assistance covered in the bill to any nation that has given or continues to give such assistance to terrorists.

  3. Requiring the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to determine the individual and groups that should be considered terrorists, for the purposes of this bill, by determining: (a) the individuals and groups that are associated with, affiliated with, adherents to or cooperating with al-Qaeda, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, or ISIS; (b) the countries that are providing assistance covered in this bill to those individuals or groups.

  4. Requiring the DNI to review and update the list of countries and groups to which assistance is prohibited every six months, in consultation with the House Foreign Affairs and Armed Services Committees, as well as the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

  5. Requiring the DNI to brief Congress on the determinations.

PS: Shameful that America needs a bill to prevent our own government from funding and arming terrorists.

Sharia Courts in Germany

A German court has ruled that a group of Islamists who formed a vigilante patrol to enforce Sharia law on the streets of Wuppertal did not break German law and were simply exercising their right to free speech. They were charged under a law that prohibits the wearing of uniforms at public rallies — a law originally designed to ban neo-Nazi groups from parading in public.

Sharia Courts in Germany

A growing number of Muslims in Germany are consciously bypassing German courts altogether and instead are adjudicating their disputes in informal Sharia courts, which are proliferating across the country. According to one estimate, some 500 Sharia judges are now regulating civil disputes between Muslims in Germany — a development that points to the establishment of a parallel Islamic justice system in the country.

A major reason for the growth in Sharia courts is that Germany does not recognize polygamy or marriages involving minors.

The German Interior Ministry, responding to a Freedom of Information Act request, recently revealed that 1,475 married children are known to be living in Germany as of July 31, 2016 — including 361 children who are under the age of 14. The true number of child marriages in Germany is believed to be much higher than the official statistics suggest, because many are being concealed.

Polygamy, although illegal under German law, is commonplace among Muslims in all major German cities. In Berlin, for example, it is estimated that fully one-third of the Muslim men living in the Neukölln district of the city have two or more wives.

According to an exposé broadcast by RTL, one of Germany’s leading media companies, Muslim men residing in Germany routinely take advantage of the social welfare system by bringing two, three or four women from across the Muslim world to Germany, and then marrying them in the presence of a Muslim cleric. Once in Germany, the women request social welfare benefits, including the cost of a separate home for themselves and for their children, on the claim of being a “single parent with children.”

Although the welfare fraud committed by Muslim immigrants is an “open secret” costing German taxpayers millions of euros each year, government agencies are reluctant to take action due to political correctness, according to RTL.

Chancellor Angela Merkel once declared that Muslims must obey the constitution and not Sharia law if they want to live in Germany. More recently, Justice Minister Heiko Maas said:

“No one who comes here has the right to put his cultural values or religious beliefs above our law. Everyone must abide by the law, no matter whether they have grown up here or have only just arrived.”

In practice, however, German leaders have tolerated a parallel Islamic justice system, one which allows Muslims to take the law into their own hands, often with tragic consequences.

On November 20, 2016, for example, a 38-year-old German-Kurdish man in Lower Saxony tied one end of a rope to the back of his car and the other end around the neck of his ex-wife. He then dragged the woman through the streets of Hameln. The woman, who survived, remains in critical condition.

The newsmagazine, Focus, reported that the man was a “strictly religious Muslim who married and divorced the woman according to Sharia law.” It added: “Under German law, however, the two were not married.” Bild reported that the man was married “once under German law and four times under Sharia law.”

The crime, which has drawn renewed attention to the problem of Sharia justice in Germany, has alarmed some members of the political and media establishment.

Wolfgang Bosbach, of the ruling Christian Democratic Union (CDU), said: “Even if some people refuse to admit it, a parallel justice system has established itself in Germany. This act shows a clear rejection of our values and legal order.”

On November 23, Bild, the largest-circulation newspaper in Germany, warned that the country was “capitulating to Islamic law.” In a special “Sharia Report” it stated:

“The 2013 coalition agreement between the CDU and the Social Democrats promised: ‘We want to strengthen the state’s legal monopoly. We will not tolerate illegal parallel justice.’ But nothing has happened.”

In a commentary, Franz Solms-Laubach, Bild’s parliamentary correspondent, wrote:

“Even if we still refuse to believe it: Parts of Germany are ruled by Islamic law! Polygamy, child marriages, Sharia judges — for far too long the German rule of law has not been enforced. Many politicians dreamed of multiculturalism….

“This is not a question of folklore or foreign customs and traditions. It is a question of law and order.

“If the rule of law fails to establish its authority and demand respect for itself, then it can immediately declare its bankruptcy.”

Austria: Migrant rapes soar by 133% – in just ONE YEAR

Source: Outrage as migrant rapes soar by 133% – in just ONE YEAR | World | News | Daily Express

The number of sexual assaults committed by migrants living in Austria rose by a staggering 133 per cent in 2016, figures obtained by The Freedom Party of Austria from the Ministry of the Interior have revealed.
Austrian interior minister Wolfgang Sobotka said the chilling increase was deeply worrying, as it was a sharp rise on last year when 39 migrants were identified as suspects.
By September, at least 91 refugees had been confirmed as suspects in sexual assaults.
The majority of suspects were originally from Afghanistan – which had an increase from 16 to 47 suspects within one year.

According to the Ministry of the Interior, a further 438 Austrians were involved in other sexual assaults.

But there were no official records on their country of origin.

National Councillor Christian Lausch, from the The Freedom Party of Austria, criticised these statistics for failing to show that “many of the ‘Austrians’ did in fact have an immigrant background”.

At present, about 47 per cent of the prisoners in Austrian jails are foreigners, data from Statista showed.

A member of law enforcement in Vienna’s largest judicial institution, who did not want be named, said: “The number of ‘real’ Austrians [convicted] for rapes is negligible. There are big problems with other cultures.”

Muslim cultures.

Three Afghans are among those facing the Regional Court in Vienna for allegedly preying on a student in the toilets at a train station before raping her.
In another case, an Afghan, who allegedly raped a 10-year-old girl in a swimming pool is currently under investigation.
And nine Iraqis are being investigated after they allegedly raped a German woman on New Year’s Eve and took pictures of the victim during the assault.
Meanwhile, a migrant seeker who raped a 72-year-old while she was walking her dog has been convicted.

Houston: Muslim father in honor killings case sent to prison for disability fraud

The patriarch of a Jordanian-American family from Montgomery County, whose members face murder charges in so-called “honor killings,” has been sentenced to federal prison in an unrelated case involving the theft of disability benefits.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes ordered Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, 57, to serve almost four years for his role in defrauding the Social Security Administration for more than a decade and to pay $290,651 in restitution.

Irsan’s wife, Shmou Ali Alrawabdeh, 37, and his daughter, 30-year-old Nadia Irsan, were convicted of providing false statements to authorities about the fraud scheme. Each of them previously received 24-month federal sentences.

According to court documents and testimony, Ali Irsan applied for Supplemental Security Income or SSI benefits in 2002 by claiming that he was disabled and had been unable to work since 1990. His wife also claimed a disability and began to receive benefits in 2005.

In seeking that financial support, which is reserved for people with limited assets excluding homes and cars, family members didn’t report a bank account in Jordan with a balance that fluctuated between $4,000 and $16,000 or a 2010 lawsuit settlement check for $75,000. Hidden cash was found during a 2014 raid on their Conroe home.

Alrawabdeh and Nadia Irsan falsified documents to aid the fraud scheme. Nadia Irsan, who was unemployed, had a checking account with deposits of more than $250,000. She also lied in telling officials that a sister with cerebral palsy lived with her and paid rent. In actuality, that sibling resided with their father, Ali Irsan, and Alrawabdeh.

The trio and another relative now must answer more serious allegations in Harris County.

Ali Irsan, who is a naturalized U.S. citizen, has been charged with capital murder in the 2012 shooting deaths of 30-year-old activist Gelareh Bagherzadeh outside her parents’ Galleria-area home and of his son-in-law, Coty Beavers, 28.

Capital murder charges

Bagherzadeh was a friend of Ali Irsan’s daughter, Nesreen, who was married to Beavers. Both women were studying molecular genetics at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Ali Irsan, a strict disciplinarian and observant Muslim father, allegedly was outraged when Nesreen married a Christian without his permission. He blamed Bagherzadeh, who was dating Beavers’ twin, Cory, for encouraging his daughter’s relationship.

Alrawabdeh and Ali Irsan’s son, 21-year-old Nasim Irsan, also are charged with capital murder. They are accused in assisting with the plan to gun down Bagherzadeh.

Nadia Irsan faces charges accusing her of assisting in the scheme to kill Coty Beavers by stalking her sister, Nesreen, while carrying a gun.

Ali Irsan also fatally shot another son-in-law in 1999. Authorities determined that the killing was self-defense.

More on this Muslim immigrant:

“I killed that (bitch), and you’re next. No one insults my honor as a Muslim and gets away with it.”

According to Harris County prosecutors, that’s what Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, 57, told his daughter after the death of Gelareh Bagherzadeh in January 2012.

Obama flooding U.S. with Somali Muslims at highest rate ever!

Source: First two months of FY2017, Somali ‘refugees’ entering US at highest rate ever! « Refugee Resettlement Watch

In light of the many Somalis who have been arrested and convicted on terrorism charges (here is the most recent case) and in light of two highly publicized cases of Somali youths we cared for on our taxpayer dime attempting to kill Americans since September in St. Cloud, MN and in Columbus, OH, we are admitting the highest weekly average of Somalis to the US that we have ever done in the last 30 years!

Using the data available to the public at Wrapsnet.org (Refugee Processing Center), we searched for the number of Somalis (virtually all Somalis are Muslims) admitted between October 1, 2016 and December 1, 2016 and this is what we found:

2,598 were admitted in the last two months. (More Somalis than Syrians, here).

And check out the top ten states which ‘welcomed’ them. (40 states got some number of Somalis, but large numbers will head to Minnesota and Ohio as soon as their initial resettlement funds run out.)

Top Ten states for Somali resettlement in the first two months of this fiscal year:

Minnesota (334)

New York (283)

Kentucky (169) It is new for KY to be anywhere near the top for resettlement, where are you Rand Paul?

Ohio (158)

Arizona (146)

Missouri (136)

Texas (133)

Washington (113)

Colorado (97)

Pennsylvania (89)

Note to the Donald Trump transition team: You can’t solve the problem if you only restrict entry to some Middle Eastern countries! Although we pick up most of the Somalis from camps in Africa, we are admitting Somalis who have “made their way” to far flung corners of the world, including to Europe!

10 Muslims trained, prayed at Montreal-area shooting range, joined jihad in Syria

RCMP investigating group of 10 men who trained, prayed at Montreal-area shooting range

Source: Identities of 2 Quebec men who fought in Syria revealed – Montreal – CBC News

An investigation by Radio-Canada’s Enquête has uncovered the identities of a group of 10 young Quebecers who secretly joined militants in Syria to fight against the Bashar al-Assad regime.

The group was made up of friends who often gathered at a Montreal-area shooting range to practise before seven of them left for the Middle East between the summers of 2012 and 2013, Radio-Canada has learned.

According to witnesses, the young men brought two firearms to the shooting range. One of them was an imitation Soviet semi-automatic carbine, called an SKS, similar to the one used by rebels in Syria.

Some of the young men trained at the shooting range over a period of several months, two to three times a week.

Several of them are believed to have been converts to Islam. Witnesses said that during their practice sessions, they would interrupt their shooting to pray.

Radio-Canada learned that after one of those practices, a client overheard one of the men say he was unhappy the targets weren’t non-believers.

The owners of the centre were notified about that incident and contacted authorities, who launched an investigation.

After that, police were present during the men’s practices. The RCMP started monitoring several of the men with electronic surveillance, following some of them closely — in some cases, day and night.

CBC learned, in collaboration with Enquête, that members of the group were the first wave of Quebecers to leave the country to fight in Syria.

Some of them are believed to have joined the Free Syrian Army, a rebel group that fights against Assad and collaborates with radical Islamists with links to al-Qaeda.

At the time of their departure, the youngest Quebecer was just 17 and the oldest was 26.

They are now being investigated by the RCMP, suspected of terrorist acts linked to the kidnapping and extortion of two Americans in Syria.

Quebecers Wassim Boughadou and Tarek Sakr were two members of that group who, along with one other man, organized the practices at the shooting range.

Boughadou, whose parents were born in Algeria, was a trainer at a gym.

Sakr, a pharmacology student, has family ties to Syria. According to Enquête‘s sources, two of Sakr’s cousins were killed in Latakia, a region of Syria that was wracked by violence at the start of the conflict.

In the summer of 2015, the RCMP carried out search warrants at the pair’s home and at the homes of two other members of the group.

Neither Boughadou nor Sakr could be reached for comment. They are believed to still be travelling around Turkey, and Syria, and Boughadou may have spent time with ISIS.

Other members of the group are back in Quebec and are still under investigation.

Police investigators suspect the group of Montreal men committed terrorist acts linked to the kidnapping and extortion of two Americans in Syria — Theo Padnos and Matthew Schrier.

CBC News has previously reported that following his escape, Schrier uncovered information possibly linking one of his masked captors to a Westmount address in Montreal.

Schrier told CBC News that he noticed the men’s distinct accents and that he and Padnos were convinced that two of their jailers were Canadians.

Ismael Habib is another one of the young men who trained at the shooting range.

ismael-habib

He left Quebec in 2013, after the kidnapping of the two American hostages.

He is now on trial in Montreal on charges of attempting to leave Canada to commit terrorist acts and of giving false information to obtain a passport.

Witnesses at that trial have testified that Habib confessed to them about having spent time in Syria and wanting to go back. Video presented as court evidence shows Habib whipping a man, who, according to police testimony, Habib said was a Syrian prisoner. The undercover agent said Habib told him the video was shot in Syria.

Since his return to Canada, Habib is believed to have received threats from his former brother-in-law Wassim Boughadou.

Oregon: Conviction upheld for Muslim who plotted to kill Americans at Christmas tree lighting

Source: Appeals court upholds bomb conviction for Mohamed Mohamud

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A federal appeals court has upheld the conviction of Mohamed Mohamud, the Somali American sentenced to 30 years in prison for plotting to bomb downtown Portland during the annual lighting of a Christmas tree.

The truck bomb was a fake given to him in 2010 by undercover FBI agents posing as terrorists.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Monday that a U.S. District Court judge properly rejected Mohamud’s claim of entrapment. The 50-page opinion states the government’s conduct was quite aggressive, but the sting fell short of a due process violation.

The court also rejected an assertion that the warrantless surveillance of his foreign communications violated his constitutional rights.


More background here and here including comments from Mohamed’s mother:

Mohamud’s mother, Mariam Barre, said she was very disappointed with the sentence.

“We are Muslim, and our religion does not to kill innocent people,” she said to a group of reporters and photographers outside the courthouse.

But…Muslims do not consider non-Muslim innocent nor any Muslim who does not abide by the sharia and believe in jihad. And double Mo’ said this about his own parents in a martyrdom video:

On Nov. 4, the court documents say, Mohamud made a video in the presence of one of the undercover agents, putting on clothes he described as “Sheik Osama style:” a white robe, red and white headdress, and camouflage jacket.

He read a statement speaking of his dream of bringing “a dark day” on Americans and blaming his family for thwarting him, according to the court documents:

“To my parents who held me back from Jihad in the cause of Allah. I say to them … if you — if you make allies with the enemy, then Allah’s power … will ask you about that on the day of judgment, and nothing that you do can hold me back …
