New Jersey: 9/11 survivor from ‘Dust Lady’ photo dies of stomach cancer

NEVER FORGET!

BAYONNE — After a yearlong battle with stomach cancer, Marcy Borders — the woman known as the “Dust Lady” from the iconic photo taken of her as she escaped from the Twin Towers on Sept. 11 — has died, according to Facebook posts by multiple family members.

Michael Borders, Marcy Borders’ brother, said in a Facebook post at 11:22 a.m. yesterday that he needed everyone to pray for her, before posting about 12 hours later: “I can’t believe my sister is gone.”

John Bordes, Marcy Borders’ first cousin, called her “my HERO” in a Facebook comment and said that she “unfortunately succumbed to the diseases that (have) ridden her body since 9/11.”

“In addition to losing so many friends, coworkers, and colleagues on and after that tragic day, the pains from yesteryear (have) found a way to resurface,” he said.

The famous photo shows Marcy Borders, a Bank of America employee at the time, distraught and covered in dust in the aftermath of the attacks in Lower Manhattan.

The Bayonne native fell into a decade-long depression that led her to abuse alcohol and drugs after her traumatic experience on 9/11. In 2011, Borders checked into rehab, and has stayed clean since, she told The Jersey Journal last year.

Borders, a mother of two, was just getting back into the working world — helping with a candidate’s local campaign for mayor — when her doctor told her in August 2014 that she had stomach cancer.

Borders, 41 at the time, told The Jersey Journal in November that she had undergone chemotherapy and that she was scheduled to undergo surgery in December and then radiation and chemotherapy afterward.

At the time, she wondered aloud if her cancer was related to 9/11.

“I’m saying to myself ‘Did this thing ignite cancer cells in me?'” she said. “I definitely believe it because I haven’t had any illnesses. I don’t have high blood pressure…high cholesterol, diabetes.”

Borders told The Jersey Journal at the time that she was struggling to pay off $190,000 in medical bills, as she didn’t have a job or health insurance.

When asked if she ever looked at the “Dust Lady” photo of herself, Borders said she avoided doing so as much as possible.

“I try to take myself from being a victim to being a survivor now. I don’t want to be a victim anymore,” she said.

Marcy wasn’t alone. We’re all prisoners of 9/11, whether we know it or admit it, or not.

RIP Marcy!

Arizona: Muslim Arrested for Recruiting New York Student to Islamic State

Presumably the college student was also a Muslim. via Arizona Man Charged with Providing Material Support to ISIL | OPA | Department of Justice

Ahmed Mohammed El Gammal, aka Jammie Gammal, 42, of Avondale, Arizona, was indicted today for providing and conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization, as well as for aiding and abetting the receipt of military-type training from ISIL and conspiring to receive such training.

“Ahmed Mohammed El Gammal is charged with conspiring to provide and providing material support to ISIL,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin.  “The National Security Division’s highest priority is counterterrorism, and we will continue to pursue justice against those who seek to provide material support to designated foreign terrorist organizations.”

“As alleged, Ahmed Mohammed el Gammal actively touted online his support for ISIL and its terrorist ways, ultimately meeting and assisting a New York college student to travel to Syria to obtain military training from ISIL,” said U.S. Attorney Bharara.  “Individuals like Gammal who allegedly serve as facilitators for ISIL fuel the hatred and radicalization that keep terrorist organizations like ISIL alive.”

“As alleged, Gammal helped a college student in New York receive terrorist training in Syria through a contact in Turkey, in order to support ISIL,” said Assistant Director in Charge Rodriguez.  “These relationships were allegedly made and solidified through the internet while Gammal was in Arizona.  This is another example of how social media is utilized for nefarious and criminal purposes around the world.  The identification of the conspiracy, and arrest today, demonstrate how federal and local law enforcement continue to work together to mitigate such threats globally and protect the United States.”

As alleged in the indictment returned today and the complaint unsealed yesterday in the Southern District of New York:

In August 2014, a 24-year-old New York City resident (CC-1) learned via social media that El Gammal had posted social media comments that supported ISIL.  Minutes later, CC-1 contacted El Gammal.  Over the next several months, CC-1 and El Gammal continued corresponding over the Internet, although CC-1 deleted many of these exchanges.

In the midst of these communications, in October 2014, El Gammal traveled to Manhattan, New York, where CC-1 was enrolled in college, and contacted and met with CC-1.  While in New York City, El Gammal also contacted another co-conspirator (CC-2), who lived in Turkey, about CC-1’s plans to travel to the Middle East.  El Gammal later provided CC-1 with social media contact information for CC-2.  Thereafter, El Gammal and CC-2 had multiple social media exchanges about CC-1 traveling to the Middle East.  In addition, CC-1 began communicating with CC-2, introducing himself as a friend of “Gammal’s.”

In late January 2015, CC-1 abruptly left New York City for Istanbul.  After CC-1 arrived in Turkey, El Gammal continued to communicate with him over the Internet, providing advice on traveling toward Syria and on meeting with CC-2.  After CC-1 arrived in Syria, he received military-type training from ISIL between early February and at least early May 2015.

On May 7, 2015, CC-1 reported to El Gammal that “everything [was] going according to plan.”

El Gammal is charged with one count of providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and one count of conspiring to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, each of which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison; one count of receiving military-type training from a designated foreign terrorist organization, which carries a mandatory sentence of 10 years in prison; and one count of conspiring to receive military-type training from a designated foreign terrorist organization, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.  The maximum potential sentences in this case are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as the defendant’s sentence, if any, will be determined by a judge.

El Gammal was arrested on Aug. 24, 2015, in Avondale, and presented in federal court in the District of Arizona, pursuant to a criminal complaint.  The case is assigned to U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos of the Southern District of New York.

NYPD Commissioner Worshipping Allah in Queens Mosque

…current New York City Police Commissioner, William Bratton with all members of the NYPD at the Jamaica Muslim Center are seen worshipping Allah:

The video was proudly tweeted  by the NYPD News.

On its Facebook the Jamaican Muslim Center announced the visit.

It seems that Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio are two butt-cheeks in one underwear. Like Mayor Blasio, the spiritual harlotry is part of Bratton’s efforts to add more Muslims to the NYPD Police Force, so he sees it fit to pray to Allah with Muslims. In June, Reuters reported:

Even with minorities nearly outnumbering whites among New York City police officers, the department is struggling to hire enough blacks and Muslims to reflect changing city demographics, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said in an interview on Monday.

Adding “Muslims” to the NYPD police force is “to reflect changing city demographics”. In other words, Islam is part of America. Bratton believes that Islam is a great religion and was hijacked by a few crazies. In May he stated:

“This crazy hijacking of the Muslim religion by these fanatics, twisting it into an ideology that’s all about hate and murder and killing.”

Sharia law has no place in a civilized society! Moslems don’t respect women, they’re property!

As we’ve noted before, the NYPD was infiltrated and shaken down by terror-linked CAIR.

New York: Muslim gets 16 years in plea deal after supporting jihadists

The tiny minority of Muslim terrorists gets bigger by the day (if not hour).

But he could walk free. via NY man gets 16-year sentence for trying to support jihadists.

For the second time, an Albanian man living in New York was been sentenced to prison after admitting he tried to support terrorists in Pakistan.

Agron Hasbajrami, 31, was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn to 16 years in prison under a plea deal that allows for his guilty plea to be vacated if a federal appeals court decides to suppress evidence from warrantless surveillance used in a National Security Agency’s secret surveillance program.

Hasbajrami also admitted sending more than $1,000 in wire transfers to support terrorist activities in Pakistan and Afghanistan, prosecutors said in a press release Thursday. They said he exchanged emails with someone in Pakistan who identified himself as a member of an insurgency group that murdered American soldiers.

In one email, Hasbajrami “stated that he wished to travel overseas, using jihadist rhetoric to describe his desire to die as a martyr,” prosecutors say.

Hasbajrami was arrested in September 2011 at John F. Kennedy International Airport after buying a one-way airline ticket to travel to Turkey. He pleaded guilty in 2012 and was sentenced to 15 years in prison for trying to travel to Pakistan the previous year to join a radical jihadist insurgent group.

While in prison, he was notified by the federal government that some evidence against him had been gathered from the surveillance program. He withdrew his plea and asked a judge to have the evidence suppressed, arguing that it was collected without a warrant.

Federal Judge John Gleeson denied his request, and Hasbajrami pleaded guilty again in June on the condition that his plea would be vacated if the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the judge’s decision.

“Mr. Hasbajrami will now have the opportunity to advance legal issues that are not only important to him, but to every American concerned about the erosion of our constitutional rights,” his attorney, Steve Zissou, said Thursday and suggested that the appeal could go beyond the 2nd Circuit. “We look forward to having these issues decided by the Supreme Court.”

But the prosecution defended the surveillance program.

“This case, like many others before it, has shown that the application of lawful surveillance can allow the United States government to detect and neutralize a terrorist in the United States,” said Kelly Currie, acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.

 

Syracuse: Muslims cut down, paint over 10,000 crosses to convert church to mosque

holy-trinity-crosses

ISIS destroys Christian symbols in the Middle East. Boko Haram attacks churches and churchgoers in Africa. In the west, the process is more refined…for now. via From church to mosque: Syracuse Islamic group cuts crosses, tries to connect to neighborhood | syracuse.com.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Two gray church spires grow out of a bumpy plain of city rooftops along Park Street. The skyline is the same as it has been for the better part of a century until you look closer at Holy Trinity Church: There are slim copper crescents where, for 100 years, there had been crosses.

The six crosses were removed and replaced at the end of June. Four of them were massive: 600 pounds of concrete each, and more than 4 feet tall. The step was the last, and most visible, in the building’s change from church to mosque.

The transformation has been a series of careful choices aimed at balancing the forces of two religions in a neighborhood that is shifting. The North Side, once full of Italian and German immigrants, is increasingly home to new Americans who are refugees from countries where Islam is the dominant religion.

Even as the crosses were cut from the church spires on the outside, and 10,000 crosses were painted over on the inside, the new owners of 501 Park St. tried to leave what they could, and reuse what they couldn’t.

The wood from the pews has been repurposed to fix the floor, which is where Muslims sit to pray. Painters worked to make the minbar, the pulpit where the imam stands, blend in with the stonework. The name of the mosque is Masjid Isa Ibn Maryam, which translates to Mosque of Jesus Son of Mary.

Is this the history we want to leave for future generations? It will be and it will get much worse if Muslim immigration is not halted and/or reversed very soon. More below the fold. Continue reading

New York: Muslim Al-Qaida Terrorist in Brooklyn Gets 22 Years in Prison

The only question is – why did Eric Holder bring yet another Muslim terrorist into the United States? via Al-Qaida Terrorist in Brooklyn Gets 22 Years in Prison | NBC New York.

A Nigerian terrorist who joined with al-Qaida operatives in Yemen was sentenced to 22 years in prison by a federal judge in Brooklyn Wednesday.

Lawal Olaniyi Babafemi posed for pictures in al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula’s (AQAP) “Inspire” magazine and called for lone wolf attacks inside the U.S.

Babafemi, 35, also traveled to Yemen from Nigeria to get terror training. Federal prosecutors said he practiced shooting with AK-47’s and even wrote rap lyrics hoping to recruit Westerners to commit terror bombings.

“Babafemi travelled to Yemen to receive weapons training and to learn how to contribute to AQAP’s English-language media operation,” said Assistant Attorney General John Carlin.

Investigators said Babafemi joined AQAP after the failed underwear bomb plot in which an AQAP operative targeted a Delta flight heading to Detroit. The FBI said Babafemi took $9,000 in cash from cleric Anwar al-Awlaki to try to recruit other Nigerians to carry out attacks. Al-Awlaki was later killed in a U.S. drone strike.

Babafemi was arrested and flown to New York for trial.

He pleaded guilty in April 2014.


For up to the next 22 years, U.S. taxpayers will fund his halal meals and prayer time, then he will be released among the U.S. public to wage jihad here in the States. That’s a long time to recruit inmates and plot his next attack.

Interestingly, from the DOJ website, where they still refuse to name al Qaeda as Muslim terrorists:

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Zainab Ahmad and Hilary Jager of the Eastern District of New York, with assistance from Trial Attorney Annamartine Salick of the Justice Department’s Counterterrorism Section.


Somewhere along the way, someone appointed a Muslim woman to be assistant U.S. attorney. There’s no bio readily available of Ahmad but it appears she rose out of New York’s Eastern District of New York, Criminal Division. Here’s a sketch of her in action during a previous Muslim terror trial.

US-based Muslim Group CAIR’s Tax-Exempt Status Should Be Stripped: Pataki

Here’s a topic Faux News failed to bring up in their faux debate days ago. via CAIR’s Tax-Exempt Status Should Be Stripped: Pataki.

Republican presidential candidate and former New York Governor George Pataki would strip the tax-exempt status of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and designated terrorist group  by the United Arab Emirates, he told the Clarion Project.

“That’s just one of the organizations I have in mind,” Pataki answered regarding his proposal to strip the tax-exempt status of radical organizations and whether he had any thoughts on CAIR.

Who were the others?

 Pataki, who was the Governor of New York during the 9/11 attacks, has stated that the federal government needs to be able to prosecute those who use free speech protections to promote terrorist organizations and incite violence against Americans.

“We respect the First Amendment but anybody who promotes recruitment to any terrorist organization, anybody who incites their fellow Americans to violence against Americans should be arrested, prosecuted and convicted. And any organization, whether it’s an Internet site they are using or a mosque or a church, should lose its tax-exempt status,” Pataki said.


Read it all. Here’s some background on Hamas-CAIR:

Also check out Clarion’s scorecard on where 2016 presidential candidates stand on, as Clarion calls it – Islamism – here.

There is a choice quote from Carly Fiorina – whom the supposed War on Women activists at Fox Faux News relegated to their junior debate:

“…these fanatics who have nothing to do with the Muslim religion.”
