Michigan: Muslim “refugee” arrested after telling feds going to “conduct jihad” with Islamic State

He also claimed “he had been going to the shooting range.” Then recanted all of it. via FBI: Mich. Iraqi refugee lied about Islamic State ties.

An Iraqi refugee living in East Lansing is facing charges for allegedly lying to federal officials about returning to the Middle East to fight with Islamic extremists.

Al-Hamzah Mohammad Jawad, 29, who has a green card, was scheduled Tuesday to fly from Detroit Metro Airport to Amman, Jordan, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court.

When U.S. Customs and Border Protection interviewed him on the jet way, personnel “became alarmed when Jawad could not explain his future travel or why he purchased a one-way ticket one day prior to his departure.”

They escorted him to an interview room and contacted an FBI special agent, the court document said.

During an interview with the agent, Jawad initially said he was traveling to visit his mother, a professor in Amman, but within minutes acknowledged his ultimate destination was “Iraq to conduct jihad” since a childhood friend recruited him to “join, train and fight with the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Iraq,” the complaint said.

That friend “had a uniform waiting for him” and claimed to have “killed many Shia and Kurds in Iraq,” authorities wrote.

Despite having told the FBI that he had sworn allegiance to an ISIL leader in a video on his cell phone and had emailed the friend about training, Jawad couldn’t show evidence on the device, nor was any found on a thumb drive in his pants pocket, the affidavit noted.

The FBI agent called Jawad’s brother, who said “he did not think he was radical or a supporter of ISIL” and was unaware of the friend in Iraq.

Also, Jawad’s sister-in-law, who accompanied him to the airport, “is a Shia and … resided in Kurdistan for several years prior to arriving in the United States.”

Still, Jawad’s roommate told the agent that the refugee “had been acting strangely over the past several weeks,” the court filing said.

When pressed to support his account, Jawad said he invented it, the report said.

“Jawad could not provide an explanation for why he had fabricated this story, stating only that his home life was messy,” the criminal complaint read. “Jawad would not provide any further information.”

Federal officials said Jawad entered the U.S. as a refugee on March 18, 2013.

They claim he violated a U.S. code involving making false statements to a federal official.

Jawad is scheduled to appear Thursday in federal court, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Detroit said.


The refugee vetting process was clearly broken and nearly useless even before Obama unilaterally changed immigration law, allowing immigrants who support terrorists to come into the US.

Whoever approved Jawad’s entry to the U.S. in 2013 allowed in either a terrorist or a mentally unstable person. Neither should have even made it passed the first round of screening. Deport him and halt all refugee resettlement of Muslims ASAP.

Dearborn illegal alien Muslim pleads guilty to killing soccer referee during game

via Soccer player pleads guilty in fatal punch of referee – DC News FOX 5 DC WTTG.

DETROIT (WJBK) – A recreational soccer player has pleaded guilty in the one-punch killing of a referee in a deal with prosecutors.

Bassel Saad admitted in a Detroit courtroom Friday that he struck and killed 44-year-old John Bieniewicz during a game last summer.

Killed by an illegal alien Muslim

Should have been deported years ago

Saad pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter. He was initially charged with second-degree murder and had been scheduled to stand trial beginning Monday.

The 36-year-old auto mechanic from Dearborn will be sentenced March 13. Under the plea deal he could be sentenced from eight to 15 years in prison.

FOX 2’s Charlie Langton was in court and reports that because Saad is not a U.S. citizen, he is also facing deportation.

His sentencing is scheduled for March 13, 2015.

Bieniewicz’s wife, Kris, said earlier this week she hoped Saad “never sees the light of day.”


 

Unfortunately he will see the light of day. Hopefully that light will not be in what’s left of America. From previous posts:Muslim that killed soccer referee made obscene gesture afterward

The 44-year-old referee ‘did not see the punch coming,’ said Saleh, who played for Saad’s team during the over-30 men’s league game at Mies Park in Livonia on June 29. Bieniewicz, a dialysis technician at a local hospital, had a wife and two sons.

Two players from the opposing team also testified that Saad knocked Bieniewicz to the turf with one punch after the referee indicated he planned to eject Saad from the game.

The punch, which Saleh said landed around the head and neck area, caused Bieniewicz to ‘fall back without any control of his body.’

Saleh said he rushed toward Bieniewicz, who was on his back grasping a yellow card in one hand and a red card in the other.

In this case, the players testified that Saad had been issued a yellow card following a foul in the first half, and Bieniewicz was giving him a second yellow for being verbally abusive. That’s when he was struck, the three players said.

A skirmish erupted between players following the attack. Saleh said he quickly checked on Bieniewicz and the referee initially was not breathing but had a pulse.

Saleh said he performed CPR and told the unconscious Bieniewicz: ‘Wake up, buddy. You’re going to be OK.’

Player Scott Herkes testified that Saad removed his jersey and left the field with another man as Bieniewicz was being tended to.

Herkes said he followed the men into the parking lot and took down the license plate number of the vehicle in which they left.

Prosecutors showed a photograph in which Saad appeared to be making an obscene gesture while seated in the vehicle.

Bassel Abdul-Amir Saad’s senseless murder of John Bieniewicz could have been avoided if America enforced immigration laws and didn’t allow lowlifes like him to enter, stay, and game the system at every step of the way to remain here like a cancer.

DebbieSchlussel.com has exclusively learned that Saad, a Shi’ite Muslim from Lebanon, was an illegal alien who came to the United States on a visitor visa. In 2007, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents arrested Saad and placed him into removal proceedings in order to deport him (he apparently challenged the deportation and didn’t voluntarily leave after being arrested).

Then, Saad married a U.S. citizen in order to stay here, and the U.S. citizen petitioned for him in order to adjust his immigration status. It appears the marriage may have been a sham marriage. But the immigration judge dropped Saad’s deportation proceedings, and Saad got a green card. He is now a Legal Permanent Resident (LPR).

The murder he committed last week was not his first act of violence or his first brush with the law. Saad has been arrested a several times, including for domestic violence. He was charged with domestic violence in the City of Detroit but managed to somehow beat the charges.

Detroit Muslim knifes two non-Muslims but cops say it’s no hate crime

He asked if the victims were Muslims and when they said no, he tried to kill them with a knife. But just like in Florida, Muslims are apparently exempt from (nonsensical) hate crime laws.

via Detroit Muslim accused of stabbing victims over religion not charged with hate crime | MLive.com. h/t Dee

DETROIT, MI — Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper didn’t charge a Detroit man with a hate crime after it’s suspected he stabbed two people at a Southfield bus stop, possibly motivated by religious hate.

Nick Loussia, Deputy Chief of Police for the Southfield Police Department, said the suspect, 39-year-old Terrence Lavaron Thomas, “is Muslim, and asked the victims what religion they were” before allegedly attacking them.

He’s charged with two counts of assault with intent to murder, carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent and possession of marijuana.

Oakland County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Paul Walton said the evidence doesn’t support a 2-year felony charge of ethnic intimidation, although investigators are still interviewing witnesses.

Walton said an argument started over “bad breath and bad teeth” before it “deescalated to a physical altercation.”

“At this point … I’m not hearing anything that is going to monumentally change any of the charges,” Walton said.

The FBI is looking at the case also to see if any federal hate crimes were committed.

“We’re taking all of the logical investigative steps with regards to the sorts of violations we investigate,” David Porter, spokesman for the Detroit FBI field office, said Thursday. “There is no update to provide

“I’m not saying anything beyond we are investigating the matter.”

Thomas’s bail was set at $1 million cash or surety bond.

According to police, Thomas attacked the victims, a 52-year-old man and 51-year-old man from Detroit, after he “made several comments about his religion and asked the victims about their religious beliefs just before the assault occurred.”

When police arrived to the scene Saturday night, they found that the 52-year-old victim had been stabbed in the head, neck and back. The 51-year-old victim had been stabbed in the hand.

Both men were taken to Providence Hospital by paramedics, and have since been released with non-life-threatening injuries.

Southfield police located Thomas “a short time after (the) incident” walking near Greenfield Road and Seven Mile Road Saturday night. According to police, he was taken into custody “without incident.”

Thomas had two knives on him when police took him into custody, according to police.

Police said the victims and the suspect did not know each other prior to the alleged stabbing and Thomas is believed to have acted alone.

Thomas’s pre-trial exam is scheduled for March 4 at 8:30 a.m. in the 46th District Court.


Worse, as noted in our first post, the media is intentionally trying to mislead the American public…either that or they are completely incompetent, as this blatantly false AJC headline clearly indicates: ‘Attacker Allegedly Targeted Muslims’.

Muslim who stabbed two people at bus stop after they responded they were not Muslim

 

 

 

 

 

Detroit: Muslim stabbed two at bus stop because they were not Muslim

via Police: Man stabs two after asking about religious beliefs – The Washington Post.

A Detroit man stabbed two people at a suburban bus stop after asking his victims whether or not they were Muslim, according to police. Federal authorities are now looking at the case as a potential hate crime, police said on Tuesday.

Both of the victims were standing at the bus stop outside of Detroit with the suspect on Saturday, Southfield Police Chief Eric Hawkins said. Several people there “engaged in conversation” until the suspect, identified by Hawkins as 39-year-old Terrence Lavaron Thomas, “asked some of the folks there if they were Muslims.”

Two of them answered, the chief told The Post on Tuesday: They were not Muslims.

“[Thomas] was not not happy with that answer,” Hawkins said. Shortly after, “without provocation,” Thomas pulled out a 3-inch folding knife “and attacked one of them,” Hawkins said.

Both victims are in their early 50′s. One was stabbed five times in the attack. The other was stabbed in the hand as he tried to stop the attack, Hawkins said. Both were released from the hospital with “non-life threatening injuries.”

Thomas then fled the scene, Hawkins said. Police arrested him “within minutes.” He was carrying two knives — one of which appeared to be the one used in the attack — and some marijuana, according to Hawkins.

Although authorities have not made a statement on the suspect’s motive, Hawkins added that “we do know that he was not happy that [the victims] indicated that they were not Muslims.” Thomas “said that he was a Muslim,” Hawkins said.

Thomas was charged with two counts of assault with intent to murder, one count of carrying a dangerous weapon, and one count of possession of a controlled substance — all state charges.

Thomas could face a state charge of ethnic intimidation as well, Hawkins said, but county prosecutors were still determining whether it would be added or not.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Magistrate Eman Jajonie-Daman set Thomas’s bond at $1 million and scheduled a preliminary examination for March 4.

Michigan’s hate crimes law defines “ethnic intimidation,” a felony, as when a person acts “maliciously, and with specific intent to intimidate or harass another person because of that person’s race, color, religion, gender, or national origin.”

Hawkins added that the FBI has been contacted about the case, and are “looking at it as a potential hate crime” to determine whether federal charges are warranted.


 

Ace of Spades notes:

Incidentally, the Washington Post’s headline makes it sound as if a non-Mulsim is stabbing Muslims:

Police: Man stabs two after asking if they are Muslim

People objected to that deliberately-misleading headline, so they’ve changed it to a slightly different lie:

Police: Muslim man stabs two after discussion about religious beliefs

They did not have a “discussion about religious beliefs.” He asked people if they were Muslim and, upon learning they were not, attacked them in accord with the teachings of his religion.

They will continue lying to you, forever.


 

True dat. In fact, the latest headline by used by WAPO’s

Police: Man stabs two after asking about religious beliefs

Other media outlets also used vague headlines to bury the story.

Remember, Muslim terrorists in the Kenyan Mall Slaughter asked shoppers if they were Muslim, killing those who were not.

Dearborn mosque suspends imam accused of illegally pocketing thousands of dollars

Readers may recall Qazwini from this post, Imam at largest US mosque calls on U.S. to enforce sharia laws against free speech.  via Finances are questioned at Islamic Center in Dearborn. h/t TROP

Qazwini

Some board members of the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn are accusing the mosque’s religious leader of a pattern of financial irregularities, threatening to report them to state and federal authorities, according to letters obtained by the Free Press.

Sent by individual board members to the full board, the letters raised questions of legal liability for the center and called for potential government investigations into the finances at one of the biggest mosques in Michigan.

In the most recent letter, sent Dec. 21, Salah Hazimi — a board member and former longtime treasurer of the Dearborn mosque — blasted Imam Hassan Al-Qazwini, the center’s religious leader, and his supporters on the board for what Hazimi called “serious and unethical financial issues.” Hazimi warned Al-Qazwini that he had 30 days to account for the money and return it or else he would report the problems to tax authorities.

But the letters show that the Shia mosque has been in turmoil, with factions vying for power while accusing each other of being un-Islamic, un-American or agents of ISIS, which dislikes Shias. Part of the controversy involves a debate over where donations should go: opponents of Al-Qazwini feel that too much money is going to him under an Islamic system known as khums, where, in Shia Islam, 20% of one’s savings go to a senior cleric.

Hazimi listed six examples of what he says are financial irregularities by Al-Qazwini, including diverting $50,000 of a $100,000 pledge to the center to khums money for himself. He also claims $71,000 is missing and that Al-Qazwini is not reporting what happened to money he raised in the mosque, such as $350,000 for Al-Mabarrat Charitable Organization, which says it helps orphans in Lebanon.

Every year, Al-Qazwini “solicits donations in amounts of over hundreds of thousands of dollars from his office, located in the ICA,” Hazimi said.

The July letter from Hammoud also complains about “diversion of donations” to overseas projects.

A concern among board members is that Al-Qazwini is using mosque money more for projects related to his father in Iraq, rather than for projects in Lebanon and for paying off the debt of the mosque’s $15-million building, which opened in 2005. The mosque still owes about $2 million, said members. According to GuideStar, the last Form 990 the mosque filed with the IRS was in 2002, showing it had revenue of $2.26 million and expenses of $1.25 million.

The signed letters from board members are in addition to the anonymous letters that have circulated in recent months accusing Al-Qazwini of diverting donations to his father, a religious leader in Iraq, and having an extramarital relationship through a Shia practice known as mutah, or temporary marriage. It’s unclear who sent the anonymous letters.


 

 The mosque may be onto something and hopefully they do go to state and federal officials with the theft charges, but it hasn’t stopped the imam. In fact, they are now converting the Dearborn civic center into a mosque every Friday:  via Dearborn mosque suspends Imam Al-Qazwini.

The board of the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn voted this week to ban its longtime religious leader from performing any religious services and prayers for two months at the historic mosque.

In response, Imam Hassan Al-Qazwini instead today performed Friday prayers – the most popular gathering time for Muslims – in the City of Dearborn’s civic center, the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center. Services inside the Islamic Center were held today by another imam.

In his sermon today, Qazwini said he was temporarily removed from the Islamic Center and now will conduct Friday prayers at the Dearborn civic center.


Will the intra-Muslim strife that causes death and destruction abroad start surfacing in Dearborn?

Michigan: Muslim wages legal jihad after arrested for driving illegally, told to remove hijab for mugshot

via The Arab American News – Local Muslim woman filing lawsuit against Dearborn Heights Police for forcing her to remove hijab during arrest. h/t Dee

hijab-jihadist

DEARBORN HEIGHTS – A 27-year-old local Muslim woman is filing a lawsuit against the Dearborn Heights Police department for forcing her to remove her hijab when she was arrested and booked for a traffic misdemeanor offense on July 9, 2014.

Malak Kazan said she was humiliated by the department’s policy, which required her to remove her scarf when she was detained for driving on a suspended license. As part of the booking process, Kazan was asked to remove her hihab for her mug shot.

Kazan allegedly expressed concern about the policy to the police men on duty, claiming it was a violation of her religion. She allegedly asked for a female police officer, but was told they couldn’t provide her with one.

After growing frustration, Kazan was able to speak to a supervisor, who told her that removing head wear was part of the department’s policy and that she needed to comply or she would be further detained.

Local Attorney Amir Makled from the Law Office of Cyril C. Hall, is filing the case at the U.S. District Court this week. He is demanding the department change its policy and is also seeking both compensatory and punitive damages for his client.

“To be exposed in front of men who aren’t part of her immediate family is a serious breach of faith and practice,” said Makled. “She has a sincere belief in her religion and to be demanded to remove her scarf is a clear violation. She felt extremely humiliated.”

After Kazan was forced to remove her hijab for her mug shot, she was allegedly told she couldn’t put it back on while she was in custody.

This incident marks the latest in several discriminatory claims launched against the city of Dearborn Heights and its police department.

In late 2014, the American Arab Civil Rights League (ACRL) also filed a suit against the city claiming that its police officers lacked diversity training and treated Muslim Americans like “second class citizens.”

Makled called on Dearborn Heights Police Chief Lee Gavin to provide the police force with extensive diversity training in order to better reflect the city’s multi-cultured residents.

“It’s clear to me that the city needs further diversity training and more diversity is needed in the police force,” Makled said. “Their policies need to be reviewed and need to reflect and serve the constituents in the city.”

The officers who took Kazan into custody and were involved in her booking process have yet to be identified. The lawsuit is listing the city, its police department, the officers who booked Kazan and Chief Gavin as the defendants on the case.

Kazan told The Arab American News that she wants to set a precedent with her incident so that other Muslim women aren’t placed in similar circumstances with local authorities.

“I honestly don’t want other women to be put in my position, where they are forced to take off their scarf in front of men they don’t know,” Kazan said. “I was so upset. It was such an uncomfortable feeling. I’ve worn my scarf for 12 years and my religion says that I can’t take it off. It’s not just a religious issue; this is a part of me – It’s my culture, my life and my identity.”

Makled said he commends Kazan for having the courage to come forward and be open about her incident.

“It’s absolutely brave for her to come forward and to discuss this openly in public,” Makled added. “It’s a good showing of her character. She wants to be the trailblazer for this new policy change that we are trying to implement.”

Makled believes there are other women in the city who could’ve possibly encountered similar experiences with the department, but may have been too embarrassed to come forward. He is hoping the case will prompt policy changes at the local municipalities.

“We hope this case can be a learning point for other departments,” Makled added. “I do believe this has happened to other residents within the city of Dearborn Heights and if there are women that want to come forward, please contact me so we can work together collectively to change this policy.”


 

Islamic ambulance chasing to terrorize kufr cops. Terror-linked and listed Muslim Brotherhood-front group CAIR:

…tells The Arab American News that the civil rights organization has successfully collaborated with the Canton and Hamtramck Police Departments to accommodate hijab attire during the lock up process.

However, their attempts were unsuccessful in both Dearborn and Dearborn Heights.

According to Walid, CAIR-MI met with Dearborn Heights Mayor Dan Paletko and Chief Gavin to discuss religious friendly accommodations almost two years ago. They also met with senior officers in Dearborn to discuss similar policies, but have yet to see the departments take any pro-active measures.

Stand your ground mayor, no more sharia accommodations!

Apparently this Muslim broad is no stranger to law enforcement, and had a previous booking photo:

Clearly she has no regard for American laws, via Fox2:

Kazan had let her driver’s license expire and there were two warrants for her arrest because she never appeared in court. In November of 2014, she was booked and detained.

“Articles such as hats, caps, hijabs, can contain concealable items that could pose a threat or chance of injury to the cops or to themselves,” said Dearborn Heights Police Chief Lee Garvin.

Detroit: Muslim Arrested in $2.7M home health care fraud scheme

via Department of Justice. h/t Dee

A Detroit-area resident was arrested today for his role in a $2.7 million home health care fraud scheme.

Javed Akhtar, 47, of Brownstown, Michigan, was arrested pursuant to a criminal complaint charging him with participating in a health care fraud scheme involving two home health agencies in Wayne, Michigan: Life Choice Home Health Care LLC (Life Choice), which he owned, and Angle’s Touch Home Health Care LLC (Angle’s Touch). Both Life Choice and Angle’s Touch purported to provide in-home health care services to Medicare beneficiaries.

According to the complaint, Akhtar served as a patient recruiter for Angle’s Touch and Life Choice, where he allegedly paid kickbacks to Medicare beneficiaries in exchange for their Medicare beneficiary information and their signatures on false medical records. The complaint alleges that Angle’s Touch and Life Choice then billed Medicare for services purportedly provided to those beneficiaries that were not actually provided, were not medically necessary, or in instances where the claims were illegally procured through the payment of kickbacks.
