North Carolina: Muslim Convert Planned to Kill 1,000 Americans

With one gun and a silencer. via: Prosecutors: Islamic State Inspired N. Carolina Man’s Plan – ABC News

A North Carolina man killed his neighbor and stole the man’s money so he could buy an assault rifle to carry out an Islamic State-inspired shooting at a concert or club, according to an indictment unsealed Monday.

The federal indictment also accuses Justin Nojan Sullivan of offering an undercover FBI employee money to kill his parents, who he believed would interfere with his plans for an attack.

The 19-year-old suspect, who was arrested in June, “planned to carry out his attack in the following few days at a concert, bar or club where he believed that as many as 1,000 people could be killed using the assault rifle and silencer,” the indictment said.

The indictment charges Sullivan with attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State and trying to use social media to have his parents killed. He also faces firearms charges.

A grand jury in Burke County also indicted Sullivan on Monday on a murder charge in the death of 74-year-old John Bailey Clark, who lived a few doors down from him, said District Attorney David Learner.

A lawyer representing him on the murder charge, Victoria Jayne, said “it’s far too early” to discuss how she expects the case to go. A defense attorney in the federal case declined to comment.

Sullivan, who lived with his parents in Morganton, a foothills town of about 17,000, converted to Islam and was watching videos of Islamic State beheadings by the fall of 2014, the indictment said. Authorities said he pledged his allegiance to the terror group.

In December 2014, he used a .22-caliber rifle stolen from his father’s gun cabinet to shoot Clark in the head, according to the federal indictment. A news release said forensic testing shows the rifle was used to kill Clark.

Sullivan hid the rifle, a black ski mask, muddy clothes and a lock-picking kit in his parents’ crawlspace, investigators wrote in the indictment, adding that he later told FBI agents that $689 in his possession had come from Clark. He believed the money was enough to buy a rifle and ammunition for the attack, the indictment said.

By the following June, investigators said, he was planning an attack in the U.S. He began having social media conversations with an undercover FBI employee whom he wanted to recruit, saying an attack in the U.S. was the best way to support the Islamic State because travel was risky.

He said during one of the conversations that he planned to buy “an AR-15 assault rifle” at a gun show, and he attempted to buy hollow point ammunition from a gun dealer, the indictment said. He researched how to make silencers and asked the undercover operative to make one for each of them.

“Our attacks need to be as big as possible,” Sullivan is quoted as telling the person.

The FBI then sent a silencer to his home, where investigators say his mother opened the package.

“When Sullivan’s parents questioned him about the silencer, Sullivan, believing that his parents would interfere with his plans to carry out an attack, offered to compensate the UCE to kill them,” authorities wrote, referring to the undercover FBI employee.

Federal authorities have said they began investigating Sullivan after his father called 911 in April saying his son was destroying religious items in their home. He was arrested at the family’s home without incident on June 19, and later told investigators that he planned to carry out an attack in the coming days when his parents were expected to be out of town, investigators have said.

He’s currently in federal custody awaiting trial later this month. Learner said he expects Sullivan to make a first appearance on the murder charge in the coming weeks.


From the DOJ press release and Indictment:

“During the course of our investigation evidence was uncovered linking Sullivan to John Bailey Clark’s murder six months earlier.  Any loss of life is tragic; due to the work of the FBI and our law enforcement partners, other planned attacks were thwarted preventing more violence.”

Sure, everyone’s glad an ISIS-supporter and murderer is now in jail, but wouldn’t it have been more prudent to book him on the murder and stolen weapon charges and allocate those FBI resources on real terror threats? What could he have attacked while behind bars? Too many questions here.

Note all the key buzzwords (read propaganda) used above. Smell an agenda?

  • ISIL – yep
  • AR15 – yep
  • assault rifle – yep
  • gun show – yep
  • silencer – yep
  • hollow point ammo – yep
  • gun dealer – yep
  • American convert to Islam (i.e., not a real, foreign, natural born Muslim) – yep
  • per the previous line, expect a quick trial and conviction unlike trials for natural born Muslims that take years

What makes this all the more curious is that we reported on this kids arrest back in June 2015.

North Carolina: Father Tips Off Police to Muslim-Convert Son’s Jihad Sympathies

 

Warrant: North Carolina student part of ISIS, wanted him to blow up high school

The student has not been named and not charged. Is he Muslim? Is he a refugee or immigrant? Here’s what he told at least one student:

“I am from Syria, I am from ISIS”

via Warrant: Teen said ISIS wanted him to blow up school, called Hit – wistv.com – Columbia, South Carolina  h/t sharia unveiled

BRYSON CITY, NC (FOX Carolina) – New details have emerged after a teen allegedly threatened to blow up Swain County High School in the name of ISIS.

Investigators searched the teen’s home after several students told officials that they overheard him make threatening comments on Dec. 16.

The student reportedly told another student “I am from Syria, I am from ISIS,” and other students claimed hearing him make similar comments, as well as say that ISIS would like for him to blow up the school and called Hitler his role model, according to a search warrant.

After the student took an exam and left the school, several students reported his statements to school officials.

The school was searched and video surveillance reviewed for any suspicious devices or packages, but nothing was found, the search warrant states.

Swain County Sheriff’s Office requested the assistance of the N.C. Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the investigation.

At about 4:40 p.m. Dec. 16, investigators went to the teen’s home where they reviewed his computer activities and found several searches on the internet for ISIS related news articles, as well as how to make homemade explosives, according to the warrant.

The teen stated to investigators that he has watched almost every ISIS propaganda video and “was impressed by their editing and software,” the report states.

The teen denied ever reaching out to the terrorist organization.

Investigators seized the computer and five spiral notebooks containing writings.

U.S. colleges brainwash students into believing 9/11 was our fault

via Colleges brainwash students into believing 9/11 was our fault | New York Post

Not all of us will be mourning 9/11 victims and their families this Friday on the 14th anniversary of the attacks. Hundreds of college kids across the country will instead be taught to sympathize with the terrorists.

That’s because their America-hating leftist professors are systematically indoctrinating them into believing it’s all our fault, that the US deserved punishment for “imperialism” — and the kids are too young to remember or understand what really happened that horrific day.

Case in point is a freshman-level English class taught at several major universities across the country called “The Literature of 9/11” — which focuses almost entirely on writings from the perspective of the Islamic terrorists, rather than the nearly 3,000 Americans who were slaughtered by them.

The syllabus, which includes books like “The Reluctant Fundamentalist” and “Poems from Guantanamo: Detainees Speak,” portray terrorists as “freedom fighters” driven by oppressive US foreign policies.

Even highly ranked University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has adopted the curriculum. The 9/11 seminar is taught by UNC associate English professor Neel Ahuja, who specializes in “post-colonial studies.”

In Ahuja’s twisted worldview, al Qaeda terrorists are the real victims. “Abu Zubaydah’s torture may be interpreted as simply one more example of the necropower of US imperialism, the power to coerce and kill targeted populations,” Ahuja recently wrote in an academic paper criticizing the war on terror.

He clearly has an ax to grind, which critics say the university gives him license to exercise through “The Literature of 9/11” curriculum.

A group of concerned UNC students has complained to administrators that the 9/11 course, also taught at the University of Maryland and other campuses, is being used to brainwash impressionable underclassmen.

“These readings offer points of view that justify terrorism, paint the United States and its government as wholly evil and immoral and desecrate the memory of the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks,” the UNC College Republicans said in a recent letter to Chancellor Carol Folt.

“There is not a single reading required that focuses on the lives of the victims, the victim’s [sic] families, American soldiers (or) families of American soldiers,” they added. “Nor is there a perspective that portrays the United States as acting in good faith before, during and after the Sept. 11 attacks.”

The course, moreover, “does not teach students how to think, it teaches them what to think,” the letter continued. “And the material it presents is an apologetic for the violence and murder against the United States.”

The university replied that freshmen should be exposed to differing points of view, even radical ones.

“Part of the college experience is the opportunity to learn from those who have differing points of view. Carolina’s first-year seminar program is part of that growth,” the administration said in a press statement, while insisting “the university isn’t forcing a set of beliefs on students.”

But several students who have taken the course warned in a professor review blog that Ahuja, who earns $72,100 a year spewing his unAmerican propaganda, does not tolerate dissent.

“He favors kids who share his views, so learn to do that,” said one reviewer. “A very interesting guy, just don’t disagree with him.”

Added another student, in a January 2014 post: “I would avoid contradicting him openly.”

“AGREE WITH HIS STANCE IN YOUR PAPERS!!!!!” advised another in November.

What’s happening in Chapel Hill is not isolated. Presenting terrorists in a sympathetic light and the US as an imperialist nation is standard fare. This is what, in varying degrees, most college kids are learning today, all over the country.


The author uses the terms “our” and “us” mistakenly suggesting that everyone in the U.S. is on the same side. Clearly they aren’t.

And as immigration from Muslim-conquered – as well as socialist and totalitarian-ruled countries increases exponentially, professors who despise America will have a wider audience that agrees with them. The growing socialist and totalitarian political wing of the Democratic party will also have a rapidly growing voter base.

UNC’s ‘Literature of 9/11’ course sympathizes with Muslim terrorists

Source: UNC’s ‘Literature of 9/11’ course sympathizes with terrorists, paints U.S. as imperialistic – The College Fix

An English class offered at UNC Chapel Hill this fall called “Literature of 9/11” explores the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks from the perspective of radical Islamists and those who view America as an imperialist nation.

The reading assignments for the class, which includes poems, memoirs and graphic novels, present terrorists in a sympathetic light and American political leaders as greedy, war hungry and corrupt, according to a review by The College Fix.

The readings mostly focus on justifying the actions of terrorists – painting them as fighting against an American regime, or mistaken idealists, or good people just trying to do what they deem right. None of the readings assigned in the freshman seminar present the Sept. 11 attacks from the perspective of those who died or from American families who lost loved ones.

“ENGL 72: Literature of 9/11” is taught by Neel Ahuja, an associate professor of English, comparative literature, and geography at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

“Neel grew up in Topeka, Kansas. He studied transnational cultural studies at the University of California, San Diego and gender studies at Northwestern University, where he was a student organizer and labor solidarity activist,” according to his online faculty bio.

Ahuja did not respond to several emails from The College Fix seeking comment. Jim Gregory, UNC’s director of media relations, said in a telephone interview that the university does not have an official stance on the class.

First-year seminars are often esoteric in nature, and typically hone in on narrow and unique topics. They are meant to introduce new students to college-level courses, and “offer an introduction to the intellectual life of the university and focus on how scholars pose problems, discover truths, resolve controversies, and evaluate knowledge,” UNC’s website states.

Other seminars this fall at UNC include designing robots with Legos, the relationship between humans and animals, race and ethnic relations in the U.S., and even animals in Japanese folklore.

As for “Literature of 9/11,” its online description states it aims to “explore representations of the 9/11 attacks and their aftermath in literature and popular culture.”

To that end, the class covers a wide variety of readings, according to a list detailed by the campus bookstore’s website.

In the Shadow of No Towers is a collection of 9/11 comics by celebrated graphic artist Art Speigelman, who witnessed the attacks from his home in lower Manhattan. None of his family died in the attack, but Speigelman told Democracy Now he felt anger at how the incident was turned into a patriotic rallying cry, and his Towers work is an extension of those emotions.

The horrors his family survived that morning “were only the beginning for Spiegelman, as his anguish was quickly displaced by fury at the U.S. government, which shamelessly co-opted the events for its own preconceived agenda,” according to the book’s Amazon description.

An online database of professor salaries maintained by the News & Observer states Ahuja’s annual salary is $72,100.

North Carolina: Commissioners session opens with Muslim prayer, policy scrapped afterward

People have had enough Islam. They are rightly fed up after fifteen years of non-stop Islamic propaganda and attacks on all things American. via Commissioners create new prayer policy for meetings | Lincoln Times-News. h/t Islamist Watch

Duston Barto started Monday night’s Board of Commissioners session by becoming the first person to deliver a Muslim invocation at a Lincoln County government meeting.

By the end of the night, commissioners passed a motion that likely ensures he’ll be the last person to open their meetings with worship. After chastising Board of Commissioners Chairman Carrol Mitchem for walking out of the chamber prior to Barto’s speech, Commissioner Alex Patton motioned to scrap the county’s barely two-month-old all-inclusive invocation policy for a moment of silence.

The motion was unanticipated, occurring at the very end of the meeting, and no public comment was allowed. Only Mitchem voted in opposition.

Patton said the decision came as a result of a lack of participation from area churches.

“The problem there is 102 churches in Lincoln County, plus these that have popped up recently from other religions,” Patton said. “(County clerk Amy Atkins) can’t advertise, so there’s no real way to get them in.”

Commissioner Cecelia Martin first suggested the move to a moment of silence on May 18. That motion was denied, 4-1, and a prayer policy was put into place that enabled any local religious leader or “appointee of any assembly that periodically and regularly meets (within) the County” to give an invocation.

That policy was enacted shortly after Mitchem told the Times-News almost two weeks earlier that he would “not listen to no Muslim pray.” At the meeting that followed, he said that he shared the board’s goal to “come up with a clean, fair and constitutional policy of giving invocations at board meetings.”

During Barto’s speech, though, nobody except for Mitchem appeared to leave the room on principle. Barto read the first chapter of the Quran, changed the term Allah to God, and talked about the historical significance of the moment. One woman sat in the back holding an orange sign with the words “no Moslem prayer” displayed toward the crowd, but she waited until after Barto spoke to exit.

Despite the decision, Barto said it was still a victory for non-Christians in Lincoln County.

“From the comments I got from (the other commissioners), saying that they were impressed with the all-embracing statements that were made in my invocation, that the recitation from the Quran was something that everyone could relate to, (that’s a win),” he said.


The first chapter of the Koran via Translations of the Qur’an, Surah 1:

AL-FATIHA (THE OPENING)

Total Verses: 7
Revealed At: MAKKA


001.001
YUSUFALI: In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
PICKTHAL: In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
SHAKIR: In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

001.002
YUSUFALI: Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds;
PICKTHAL: Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds,
SHAKIR: All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.

001.003
YUSUFALI: Most Gracious, Most Merciful;
PICKTHAL: The Beneficent, the Merciful.
SHAKIR: The Beneficent, the Merciful.

001.004
YUSUFALI: Master of the Day of Judgment.
PICKTHAL: Master of the Day of Judgment,
SHAKIR: Master of the Day of Judgment.

001.005
YUSUFALI: Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.
PICKTHAL: Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help.
SHAKIR: Thee do we serve and Thee do we beseech for help.

001.006
YUSUFALI:Show us the straight way,
PICKTHAL: Show us the straight path,
SHAKIR: Keep us on the right path.

001.007
YUSUFALI: The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.
PICKTHAL:The path of those whom Thou hast favoured; Not the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray.
SHAKIR: The path of those upon whom Thou hast bestowed favors. Not (the path) of those upon whom Thy wrath is brought down, nor of those who go astray.


So Barto opened by praying that Allah would keep Muslims on the straight path, not the path of the non-Muslims or apostates who go stray from Islam and earn Allah’s anger.

Looks like Mitchem was onto something. The rest were fooled, praying or listening to a prayer for their own demise.

Update: Barto, or someone purporting to be Barto, has left a comment below including what he writes is the full text of the Islamic prayer. Nothing new, just reiterating the “Straight Way” and “the path of those who have earned Your anger. Do not let us be among the misguided.” That would be the non-Muslims and those who have escaped Islam. Just as ISIS and lone/known wolves kill non-Muslims, Barto and others pray against them. (us)

North Carolina: Father Tips Off Police to Muslim-Convert Son’s Jihad Sympathies

via Father Tips Off Police to Son’s Alleged ISIS Sympathies, Authorities Say – ABC News.

A North Carolina man was charged today with planning to gun down “a large number of citizens” in attacks to support ISIS here in the United States, authorities said.

Ironically, it was the suspect’s father who first alerted authorities to his son’s ISIS sympathies. As a result, 19-year-old Justin Sullivan was arrested over Father’s Day weekend.

Sullivan_3

The criminal complaint charges that Justin Sullivan planned to buy a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle at the Hickory, North Carolina gun show, and use it to kill people “at a bar or concert.” Sullivan was arrested at his home in Morganton this past Friday and in a subsequent interview with the FBI, admitted that he looked online for nearby places to attack.

Authorities said Sullivan allegedly had plans for a “mass attack, while the criminal complaint states that authorities believe Justin Sullivan was radicalized by watching ISIS videos on social media.

Sullivan is charged with one count of attempting to provide material support to ISIS, one count of transporting and receiving a silencer in interstate commerce with intent to commit a felony, and one count of receipt and possession of an unregistered silencer, unidentified by a serial number. The charge of conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign organization carries a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

The FBI first became aware of Justin Sullivan in April, when his father called 911, saying, “I don’t know if it is ISIS or what, but he (Justin Sullivan) is destroying Buddhas, and figurines and stuff.”

In June, an FBI undercover officer made contact with him, and Sullivan told him he had converted to Islam, and was a “mujahid,” authorities said.

Sullivan told the undercover agent he should get “an AR-15 with split core ammo … it’s fragmenting hollow points … deadly,” authorities said.

He also wanted the undercover to “just kill a few people so that I know you are truthful,” according to authorities.

Federal investigators said that among the people he wanted killed were his own parents. Sullivan also asked the undercover FBI agent to help him make a homemade silencer, and he made grandiose plans for a mass attack.

According to the charging document, Sullivan wrote the undercover officer, “500 is an incorrect body count.” He said 1,000 was correct, “I’m thinking about using biological weapons … coat our bullets with cyanide … and then set off a gas bomb to finish the rest.”

In one of his last conversations with the undercover agent, authorities said Sullivan talked about a second attack, “we could use a U-Haul packed with bombs and then detonate it.”

 

Duke Univ, Muslim Brotherhood student group try to silence Muslim feminist’s speech

Muslim Islamophobia. via Muslim Feminist: Duke Tried to Block My Speech on Women & Islam After ‘Smears’.

A Muslim feminist says Duke University rescinded her invitation to speak after a student association complained.

Author and journalist Asra Nomani planned to give a speech arguing for a “progressive, feminist interpretation of Islam.”

“What I wanted to tell them is that we’re living a paradox where there’s a progressive spirit in Islam, but sadly, there’s […] forces within our community that subordinate us, subjugate us, and silence us, and sadly, that’s what I saw at Duke University,” she said.

Nomani said that a Duke professor [Duke professor of Islam, Omid Safi] “smeared” her two years ago in an email, charging her with having an “alliance” with Islamophobes.

Nomani said the Muslim Students Association “resurrected that dig” and urged people not to attend her speech.“And so we all know what that does effectively, it scared everyone,” she said.

The sponsoring organization and Duke then rescinded her speaking invitation. When Nomani asked for evidence against herself, the school decided to invite her to speak once again.

Yesterday, Nomani delivered her speech to just nine people.

Nomani said that those who try to silence her think that they don’t want to “tarnish the true image of Islam.” She said that they don’t want to talk about the reality of Islam, which is that women are treated like second-class citizens in way too many communities.

“We serve the religion and we serve the country and the world best if we forge ahead with a gender jihad, a jihad that fights for women’s rights along with all people’s rights,” Nomani said.


The MSA is a Muslim Brotherhood-founded group. Safi defended the Ft. Hood jihadist and more, via:

Safi has a long history of defending radical Islamists and smearing his critics, all while posing as a progressive Muslim fighting for justice.  From classroom assignments in which scholars with whom he disagrees are labeled “Islamophobes” to charging falsely that Robert Spencer threatened to kill him, Safi lashes out at those who would expose his efforts to shill for Islamists.  In his latest apologia for terrorists, he insults the professionalism of the American military, the decency of the American people, and the truth.
