An adult day care center operator and two former home health care company owners face prison and more than $10 million in restitution payments after a federal judge sentenced them for their roles in a $29 million Medicare fraud scheme.

Felicar Williams, 51, of Dearborn, received five years in prison and more than $2.4 million in court-ordered restitution after a jury conviction for conspiracy to commit health care fraud and conspiracy to receive health care kickbacks. At issue were Medicare billings from Haven Adult Day Care Center LLC, a business that was registered in Madison Heights. Prosecutors contend Williams billed Medicare through the company for psychotherapy services that were not provided.

Meanwhile, Abdul Malik Al-Jumail, 54, owner of ABC Home Care Inc. and other companies, received 10 years in prison and nearly $8.4 million in ordered restitution, and daughter Jamella Al-Jumail, 25, received four years in prison and $589,516 in restitution.

All three were sentenced by U.S. District Judge Denise Page Hood in Detroit following a 12-week jury trial that ended Sept. 30. The three were among more than a dozen co-defendants in a $29 million Medicare fraud prosecution that began in 2012, and several others have previously entered guilty pleas in that case.

In some instances, federal officials contend Williams billed Medicare for services to patients who were already deceased. Williams also sold private medical information of patients to Abdul Malik Al-Jumail, who in turn caused Medicare claims to be submitted for home health care and physical therapy services that were never provided.

Jamella Al-Jumail also allegedly submitted false Medicare billings for home health care and physical therapy. She was also accused of telling an employee the day her father was arrested to retrieve falsified records, which she and others later burned.

The elder Al-Jumail was convicted of health fraud conspiracy and conspiracy to pay and receive health care kickbacks, while Jamella Al-Jumail was convicted of health fraud conspiracy and destroying documents in connection with a federal investigation.

U.S. ‘Prepared to Play Leading Role’ in Absorbing Muslims from Burma, Already Imported 1,000+

Taxation for Islamization. via U.S. ‘Prepared to Play a Leading Role’ in Absorbing Muslim Refugees From Burma.

(CNSNews.com) – The United States is “prepared to play a leading role” in resettling Muslim refugees from Burma and Bangladesh, known as Rohinga, a State Department spokesperson said on Wednesday.

We’ve already resettled, I think, more than 1,000 Rohinga, and we said we’re prepared to take a leading role in any (United Nations)-organized effort,” said spokeswoman Marie Harf. “It has to be a multicountry effort. We obviously can’t take this all on ourselves. But we are prepared to play a leading role in this effort.”

Harf spoke one day after the United Nations refugee agency warned that time was running out for thousands of people stranded at sea and urged governments in Southeast Asia “to urgently rescue and disembark these vulnerable people.”

“We estimate that nearly 4,000 people (Rohinga) from Myanmar and Bangladesh remain stranded at sea with dwindling supplies on board,” the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees said. “This includes some 2,000 men, women and children stranded on at least five boats near the Myanmar-Bangladesh coasts for more than 40 days. Unconfirmed reports suggest the number could be higher,” UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards told journalists in Geneva on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Harf said the U.S. resettlement of 1,000 Rohinga in the current fiscal year “has been an ongoing process.”

“I’m not sure there’s been some new decision,” she said.

“If there are more migrants, would the U.S. be willing to resettle some or provide military assets to help with the moving people around?” a reporter asked Harf.

“Yes, so we’re actively considering our options right now on two pieces of that, though. I’ll start with financial assistance. If the UNHCR and ION indicate the need for additional funds to assist governments to establish things like reception centers and ensure protection screening procedures, we’ll consider those requests. We will encourage other governments to respond quickly and generously, and we’ll be ready to respond to an appeal if and when they make one.

“In terms of resettling, I think the Malaysians and the Indonesians have requested some help resettling people. We’re taking a careful look at the proposal. We’re prepared to take a leading role in any UNHCR-organized multicountry effort to resettle the most vulnerable refugees.

“I’d note that more than 1,000 Rohinga have already been resettled to the U.S. so far this fiscal year. And we’re also providing assistance, this year we provided nearly $109 million in humanitarian assistance for vulnerable Burmese since the beginning, again, of this fiscal year.”


We’ve taken in more than 1,000 Muslim invaders that taxpayers are forced to subsidize AND…AND taxpayers have been robbed of $109 MILLION dollars to fund Muslims over there.

Traitorous.

 

Minneapolis: Airplane-fueling Muslim joins ISIS, promptly meets Allah

h/t Jihad Watch who notes:

No one would have dreamed of trying to determine whether Ahmed should really have been fueling passenger jets. That would have been “Islamophobic.”

via Facing child support, Minneapolis man joins the jihad

MINNEAPOLIS — Abdifatah Ahmed struggled for years to make ends meet.

After losing his $15-an-hour job fueling airliners in Minneapolis, the Somali-American father of nine survived on low-wage jobs and public assistance. He complained about working hard, but never having enough money. His circumstances worsened when he was ordered to pay more than $700 a month to support three of his children — including one less than a year old.

Months later, he surfaced in Syria, where he went to fight for the Islamic State.

“I think since he lost his job, he was maybe never normal after that,” sister Muna Ahmed told the AP last fall.

“It’s unbelievable,” his friend, Farhan Hussein, said recently. “Where did this disease come from?”

Hussein said his friend seemed confused about life, and sometimes felt stressed out by the women with whom he had children: Minnesota court papers show at times he was paying child support to two ex-wives for five of his kids, as well as support for a sixth whose mother is not identified. He wasn’t the type to go to mosque or pray every day — instead, he went clubbing and even drank alcohol, Hussein said.

When he felt troubled, Ahmed might turn to his religion for a week or so at a time. But once the blues passed, he would be back to his old self — flirting with women, dressing sharply, listening to rap music, shooting hoops and lifting weights at a local gym, Hussein said.

He dipped sporadically into political discussions, speaking about the Palestinians, the civil war in Libya and conditions in the Ogaden region of Ethiopia where many Somalis live. But the continued atrocities against Syrian civilians committed by the Assad regime apparently made a deeper impression.

On Dec. 3, 2013, a post on his Facebook account showed pictures of mutilated kids: “Look what is happening in syria. Where is the UN when u need them. This is worse than libya you get it?”

A month later, it appears, Ahmed was in Syria himself.

“A muslim has to stand up for was right. … I give up this worldly life for allah and to save the ummah (community of believers) if that makes terrorist am happy with it,” he wrote in a Jan. 3, 2014 post.

Another post that same day contains a photo of him holding a rifle in one hand, and a book that may be the Quran in the other.

Alarmed, Hussein messaged Ahmed, urging him to come home. After ignoring his friend for months, Ahmed replied that “we’ve got to fight” for the caliphate.

Ahmed’s last Facebook posts, including one that says “having fun in jihad,” are dated last July 25.

The next month, a member of Ahmed’s family received a picture that appeared to show him dead, with a gunshot wound to the head. The State Department is working to verify reports of Ahmed’s death, but Hussein identified the person in the photo as his friend, who would have been 34 according to court records.

 

NYC: Mohammed fleecing tourists with $30 hot dogs outside 9/11 Memorial

via NYC Hot Dog vendor charged tourists $30 outside 9/11 Memorial | Daily Mail Online h/t TROP

A crooked New York City food vendor has been caught on camera as he successfully rips off tourists.

Ahmed Mohammed is seen charging individuals anywhere from $3 to a whopping $30 for a hot dog, and as much as $15 for a pretzel.

Crook: Ahmed Mohammed (above) was caught on camera selling hot dogs for $30 to tourists in New York City outside the 9/11 Memorial

 

What’s more, he is doing this just outside the 9/11 Memorial in downtown Manhattan.

‘I just felt like I was getting ripped off, and it’s just making the 9/11 grounds like a big tourist trap,’ one woman told NBC 4.

Another man said the price of his hot dog kept changing, going from $15 to $10, prompting the man to hand back the food to Mohammed even though he had already taken a bite.

‘To rip-off somebody, to charge them $35 for a hot dog and a pretzel, that leaves a terrible impression,’ said Jessica Lappin of the Alliance for Downtown New York.

She became aware of the situation when fights began breaking out because of Mohammed’s prices.

That’s not the only problem either, as other customers say the vendor will shortchange them after their purchase.

When a reporter for the network confronted him about his prices, he suddenly declared he did not speak English, though he did offer to sell them a hot dog for $3, which is still far steeper than the normal $1 charged by most vendors in the city.

Mohammed is currently under investigation by the Alliance.

 

Canada: Beware of the Muslim Brotherhood, expert warns

cair-mbhood-links

via Beware of the Muslim Brotherhood, expert warns | Ottawa Citizen.

Authorities should be concerned about the unseen hand of the Muslim Brotherhood gripping sections of Canada’s diverse Muslim community, says a U.S. security expert.

The movement has planted its revivalist interpretation of Islam, political ideology and activism among some Muslims here and sees itself as a minder and broker between them and the rest of society, Lorenzo Vidino, who specializes in Islamism and political violence, told the Senate’s national security committee recently.

“They basically aim to be the gatekeepers to Muslim communities, that whenever politicians, governments or the media try to get the Muslim voice, if there were such a thing, they would go through them, sort of the self‑appointed leaders of Muslim communities,” he said.

Vidino is director of the program on extremism at George Washington University and author of The New Muslim Brotherhood in the West (Columbia University Press, 2010). He sees no direct links to terrorism among the group’s western supporters. In fact, some work to prevent violent radicalization, he said.

“It would be an analytical mistake to lump them, as some do, with al-Qaida or ISIL. These are not organizations that plan attacks in the West, and actually in many cases they do condemn them.”

The problem is more indirect, Vidino said. “Generally speaking, the movement has not abandoned violence as a tool to advance its agenda.” Tactically, it doesn’t pursue violence, “but it’s not heartfelt,” he said.

“They have this narrative where they lump together foreign policy issues with issues like cartoons and so on as part of a big narrative that proves this point that the West hates Muslims and Islam. It’s that mainstreaming of this narrative which is very much the staircase to violent radicalization and the brotherhood does mainstream that. It provides somewhat of a fertile environment.

“That kind of narrative in the mind a 16- or 18-year-old is extremely dangerous, because violence is justified when Muslims are under attack. If it’s OK in Gaza and Afghanistan, why is it not OK in the West, where you’re also telling me that Islam is under attack?”

The brotherhood is a banned terrorist organization in some Middle East and other countries, notably Egypt, where the movement was born. But it has different profile in the West.

To start, there is no group calling itself the “Muslim Brotherhood” in North America. Instead, a few hundred sophisticated, politically savvy and well-funded supporters in Canada have over the past 50 years created vocal and visible organizations that represent a very small part of the Muslim community. They exert a disproportional influence over mosques, schools and spaces where Muslims come together, said Vidino.

While they don’t take orders from any Arab capital, they “are part of an informal network where you have strong links based on personal and financial connections, and at the end of the day what matters the most: ideology. They all embrace a certain world view.”

Groups sometimes go to great lengths to sever or hide such ties, Vidino told the committee. He said they include the Muslim Association of Canada and what used to be called CAIR-CAN, now the National Council of Canadian Muslims.

Another group he identified is The International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy – Canada, IRFAN. Its charitable status was revoked after the government alleged the organization sent almost $15 million to groups affiliated with the Palestinian terror outfit Hamas between 2005 and 2009. IRFAN has since been listed as a banned terrorist organization in Canada.

Ihsaan Gardee, executive director of the NCCM, said Vidino is misinformed.

“The NCCM is an independent, non-partisan and non-profit grassroots Canadian civil liberties and advocacy organization with a public track record spanning 15 years,” said Gardee. “The NCCM is not a religious group and does not and has never had any affiliations, links, ideological or of any other kind, with the Muslim Brotherhood or any other overseas group.”

The Muslim Association of Canada did not respond to a request for comment. But its website traces its roots to the teachings of Egyptian Hassan al-Banna, who founded the brotherhood in 1928 to revive and integrate traditional Islamic teaching and practices, such as sharia law, with modern society.

Vidion’s parting advice to the committee: “Engage with knowledge. Know that they have an agenda.”


The U.S. was warned too.

Study: Almost a third of UK schoolchildren believe ‘Muslims are taking over our country’

Survey says: The kids are smarter than the adults running the UK. Or at least more honest.

They’ve seen their countrymen beheaded in the streets, their sisters and mothers become victims of the rape jihad epidemic, and their Christmas celebrations, favorite pork foods and other freedoms curbed. They are not blind.

via Almost a third of school pupils believe ‘Muslims are taking over our country’, study claims – UK – The Independent.

Almost a third of schoolchildren believe that Muslims are “taking over our country” according to the largest study of its kind carried out in the UK.

The survey’s results come shortly after Labour MP Tristam Hunt’s embarrassing encounter with a schoolchild, who told the shadow education minister that he would vote Ukip because he would “like to get all the foreigners out of the country”.

The data, based on questionnaires sent to more than 60 schools across the UK by charity Show Racism the Red Card (SRTRC) between 2012 and 2014, also found that 60 per cent of children questioned believed “asylum seekers and immigrants are stealing our jobs”.

The survey’s results come shortly after Labour MP Tristam Hunt’s embarrassing encounter with a schoolchild, who told the shadow education minister that he would vote Ukip because he would “like to get all the foreigners out of the country”.

SRTRC chief executive Ged Grabby said the results demonstrated more needed to be done to combat far-right extremism and cautioned what message younger people were taking from the media.

“This survey shows that this is fuelled by a totally distorted view of the number of immigrants and Muslims living in the UK,” he told The Guardian.

Of the 5,945 children survey across England, 49 per cent agreed with the statement that migration was out of control or not being managed properly.

University of Manchester professor Hilary Pilkington cautioned that the results were “not evidence of widespread racism among young people” but instead an indication of “anxiety – often based on inaccurate information”.

41 per cent of children did not think that “Muslims are taking over England” and just under half (47 per cent) thought that relations between Muslims and non-Muslims were poor.

But Dr Paul Jackson from the University of Northampton, who also worked on the research project, was pessimistic – despite acknowledging some young peoples’ “gap between the reality and perception on issues”.

He said: “The subsequent levels of hostility towards these groups is very worrying and is something that we, as a society, need to take seriously.”


Rather than worry about kids who want to live a peaceful life according to their British customs and values without foreigners telling them what they can and can’t do, the British “society” must take seriously the disastrous immigration policy that is destroying the U.K.

 

Chicago: Muslim jihad suspect searched ‘suicide bombings’, “jihad is obligatory”

In other news, federal researchers discovered that the Earth is round. via Iowa/Illinois briefs – THonline.com: Iowa-Illinois-Wisconsin. h/t LUTB

CHICAGO — Federal prosecutors say a 19-year-old Chicago-area man accused of trying to join the Islamic State group searched the terms “suicide” and “suicide bombings” on his phone before his 2014 arrest.

That new detail in Mohammed Hamzah Khan’s case came in a court filing in which prosecutors oppose a motion for his release pending trial. The late Tuesday filing seeks to show Khan would pose a serious threat if freed.

Prosecutors say Khan also searched the phrase, “jihad is obligatory.”

Defense attorney Thomas Durkin has told a judge that a psychiatrist determined Khan isn’t mentally ill. Durkin said it’s more an issue of poor critical-thinking skills.

Durkin said Khan could be released to get counseling and wouldn’t pose a threat.

Khan has denied attempting to provide material support to terrorists.
