A man visiting a Franklin County jail inmate accused of aiding terrorists was arrested himself after deputies say he made a threatening gesture at a guard.

Abdiqani A. Aden, 18, is charged with a misdemeanor count of aggravated menacing. A deputy wrote in charging documents filed yesterday that Aden held his fingers and thumb out like a gun and gestured as if shooting, while speaking in a foreign language.

Aden posted a $10,000 bond set in Municipal Court this morning.

He was visiting Abdirahman S. Mohamud, 23, at the Downtown jail just before 7 p.m. on Friday when the incident occurred, a sheriff’s office spokeswoman said. She didn’t know the relationship between the two men.

Mohamud is charged with one count of soliciting or providing support for acts of terror, a third-degree felony, and one count of money laundering in support of terrorism, a fifth-degree felony.

Mohamud [the already jailed brother], who was born in Somalia but is a U.S. citizen, is being held on $1 million bail.

Ohio: Muslim arrested for plotting jihad on US Capitol

Apparently Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah didn’t know the Capitol is used as a mosque every Friday. via Ohio man arrested for ISIS-inspired terror plot on US Capitol

The FBI today arrested a 20-year-old Ohio man for allegedly plotting to carry out a terrorist attack on the US Capitol.

Christopher Lee Cornell, of Green Township, was taken into custody by federal agents on charges of attempting to kill a government official and possession of a firearm in furtherance of attempted crime of violence, according to a criminal complaint.

Government documents filed in the case indicate that the 20-year-old Cornell, who also goes by the name Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah, allegedly planned to detonate pipe bombs in the Capitol and then open fire on people fleeing the building in the aftermath of the blasts.

According to government documents, Cornell first showed up on the FBI’s radar several months ago after he sent out a tweet in support of violent ‘jihad.’

An investigation into Cornell’s activities has revealed videos and other online statements backing the deadly extremist organization ISIS, also known as ISIL.

According to the FBI, the 20-year-old also exchanged messages with an undercover federal informant about his desire to launch Islamic State-style attacks on US soil.

‘I believe that we should just wage jihad under our own orders and plan attacks and everything,’ Cornell allegedly wrote in August. ‘I believe we should meet up and make our own group in alliance with the Islamic State here and plan operations ourselves.’ 

In instant messages to the undercover informant, Cornell indicated that while he did not have support to conduct an attack on behalf of any group, ‘we already got a thumbs up from the Brothers over there and Anwar al Awlaki before his martyrdom and many others.’

Government officials say Cornell’s suspected terror plot was in the early stages of development; he planned to carry out an attack in December 2015.

The FBI says the public was never in danger and he never made it to Washington.

Cornell’s arrest early Wednesday morning came at the Point Blank store where he allegedly purchased a pair of M-15 semi-automatic rifles.

Last week’s Muslim contribution to Ohio:  Ohio: Muslim shot & killed at airport after attacking cops with knife

Ohio: Muslim shot & killed at airport after attacking cops with knife (updated)

Lost in the war Muslims are waging in France, were acts of jihad being waged right here in America. Last week, via Man armed with knives killed by police at Ohio airport: cops – NY Daily News.

A 41-year-old Ohio man armed with several knives tried to buy a plane ticket with a fake ID before being gunned down by police after lunging at an officer with a blade outside the Columbus airport, police said.

Hashim Hanif Ibn Abdul-Rasheed had parked illegally outside the ticketing terminal and was acting bizarrely as he tried to buy a ticket to an undisclosed location Wednesday afternoon. He showed off a woman’s ID to try and make the buy at one point before he was rebuffed, cops said.

Airport police called a tow truck to remove the illegally parked vehicle from the departures lane just before 1 p.m. Wednesday when Abdul-Rasheed returned.

“The man initially spoke with the officer then suddenly produced a knife and lunged at the officer, attempting to stab him,” the Port Columbus International Airport said in a statement. “The officer fired at the suspect, who momentarily dropped to the ground and then got back up and continued advancing towards the officer. A backup officer responded at which point the suspect quickly moved towards him with the knife forcing the officer to retreat backwards towards the terminal entrance where a third officer was positioned. The third officer shot multiple times, striking the suspect, ending the attack.”

When cops searched Abdul-Rasheed’s body, they discovered “additional knives.” Police called in a bomb squad to investigate the car and a search turned up “suspicious items,” officials said.

The entire incident was captured on surveillance video, police said. The shooting remains under investigation.

The disturbance caused some delays of just over an hour and an area of the ticketing lobby was closed off as the car was searched for explosives.

Police haven’t described the man’s motive.

“At this point this is just a violent encounter between an armed man and the officers here,” Columbus Police Sgt. Rich Weiner told reporters.

Update: Man shot dead by airport police in Ohio had knives taped to his legs and may have been plotting to hijack a plane

Hashim Hanif Ibn Abdul-Rasheed had two ‘lock-blade style’ knives beneath his trousers and tried to buy an airline ticket using a woman’s ID, according to the counterterrorism unit in Columbus, Ohio. 

Further investigation found he had more knives, a gas mask, other masks, computers, cameras and cellphones in his illegally parked SUV, the statement said.

The statement was filed this week as investigators got a search warrant to review data on a cellphone linked to the case.

Police said airport officers confronted Abdul-Rasheed after he returned to the vehicle outside Port Columbus International Airport on January 7.

They repeatedly fired at him after he moved toward one officer with a knife.

The local police union leader said a bomb squad also found containers of frozen urine in the vehicle, an unexplained twist not mentioned in the detective’s court filing.

Burqa bank robberies spread to Ohio

WOODLAWN, Ohio (Angela Ingram) — A gun-toting bank robber picks an unusual disguise during a holdup; a burqa, traditionally worn by women.

Although the suspect was wearing a burqa, witnesses were able to get a look at his face. Investigators hope that, along with video from inside the building, leads them to a suspect.

A man wearing an outfit traditionally worn by women walked into Kroger in Woodlawn Tuesday morning. There’s a Fifth Third Bank branch inside the Kroger. Witnesses said, at around 10a.m. the man held up the bank with a silver revolver.

Asst. Chief Aaron Tillman of the Woodlawn police dept. said, “It was reported that the individual entered into the bank and was in the back of the bank area where only employees are authorized to be and demanded money and brandished a weapon.”

Police said the man got in through a back door just as the bank was opening. Although he was wearing a burqa, witnesses were able to get a decent look at the suspect.

One witness said the man was African-American, about 6 feet tall, and with a slender build. They also describe the robber as having a facial tattoo.

Witnesses saw him run from the back of the store. Investigators are combing through surveillance video for clues.

“The subject was seen shopping in the store earlier by one of the store managers who was actually made contact with him and then it was later told to us that, that was the same individual that was involved in the robbery,” said Tillman.

Police said the man was also carrying a bag for the cash. No one was hurt during the robbery.

Turkish Islamist Schools: Still Secretive, Still Thriving…in America!

More on the Islamic schools infiltrating America and plundering taxpayers. via Turkish Charter Schools: Still Secretive, Still Thriving – Eagle Forum. h/t Lisa

In June and July of 2014, FBI agents raided the Illinois headquarters of Concept Schools and 19 of their charter school locations in Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. Concept Schools are operated by individuals of Turkish heritage and are “inspired” by the Muslim cleric Fethullah Gülen.

The FBI sought to obtain “all bank records,” “all general ledgers,” “all calendars,” “all documents related to employee travel,” and “all telephone records, telephone lists, and contact lists.” (Chicago Sun-Times, 7-2-14)

There are currently 146 charter schools in 26 states and Washington, DC with links to Imam Fethullah Gülen, a Muslim cleric living in a remote enclave in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. All these Turkish charter schools are funded by American tax dollars and are run by independent boards, often made up solely of Turkish expatriate males who are followers of Gülen

In 2008, the Turkish government acquitted Gülen of charges that included promoting a Muslim state there. But the current Turkish prime minister has recently asked that Gülen be extradited to Turkey and has accused him of trying to overthrow the government. (BBC, 4-29-14)

The Turkish charter schools in America prefer to say they are “inspired” by Fethullah Gülen and claim he has no direct involvement with their operation. Critics of the Turkish schools dispute that claim. They say that Gülen’s followers are singularly devoted to him; that Gülen has a strong hold over them; and that Gülen exerts a great deal of influence over the schools.

Ilhan Tanir, a Turkish journalist who left the Gülen movement, says that the organization seems to “justify any conduct to achieve its ends at any cost.” The president of Gülen’s Golden Generation Worship and Retreat Center in Pennsylvania told a reporter that members of the movement “obey commands completely.” (City Journal, Autumn 2012)

Turkish Schools in Ohio

In Ohio, Gülen-inspired charter schools are run by Concept Schools. Between 2005 and 2013, Concept hired 474 foreign teachers, mostly from Turkey, using H-1B visas. The H-1B visa program was developed so employers could bring highly skilled foreign workers to the U.S. when there are no Americans qualified to fill jobs. Critics of the importation of foreigners as instructors point out the absurdity of hiring Turkish K-12 teachers, some of whom barely speak English.

About 12% of Concept’s teachers are in the U.S. courtesy of H-1B visas. Concept Schools vice president Salim Ucan says the reason they bring teachers from Turkey is that the school’s founders and administrators are from Turkey, “and that is where we have comfort.”

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, Ohio’s “Concept schools are collecting about $45 million in state funds annually to educate 6,600 children in kindergarten through high school.”

More than half of the 18 Concept schools in Ohio “received Ds on the state’s most recent performance index, a measure of how many students passed key achievement tests.” Concept runs a total of 32 Turkish charter schools in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Illinois. The organization is based in Des Plaines, Illinois. (Cincinnati Enquirer, 10-5-14)

Breaking Laws

A former employee at an Ohio Concept school named Mustafa Emanet says he was forced to give back part of his salary in cash kickbacks to school administrators during his employment from 2006-09. He claims he was also required to visit Gülen at his residence in Pennsylvania. (Cincinnati Enquirer, 10-5-14)

Four former Concept Schools teachers testified at an Ohio Board of Education meeting held in July that other teachers had cheated on standardized tests by filling in tests for students. (The Plain Dealer, 7-15-14) Continue reading

Ohio: Muslim Comptroller Hired by Rahm Emanual Gets 4 Years Jail for Corruption Scheme

COLUMBUS—A former Ohio attorney and lobbyist was sentenced today for his role in a bribery and money laundering scheme involving the Ohio Treasurer’s Office.

Mohammed Noure Alo, 35, of Columbus, Ohio, appeared before U.S. District Judge Michael H. Watson of the Southern District of Ohio for sentencing today. Judge Watson sentenced Alo to 48 months in prison for honest services wire fraud and ordered he pay over $123,000 forfeited as a money judgment. A co-defendant, the former Deputy Treasurer for Ohio, Amer Ahmad, fled after his guilty plea to federal program bribery and conspiracy, and is currently in Pakistani custody pending an extradition request from the United States government.

Alo was a partner and founding member of a Columbus-based law firm and became a registered lobbyist to the State of Ohio in 2010. Court records state that from approximately January 2009 through January 2011, Alo admitted he conspired with his close personal friend Amer Ahmad, 38, of Chicago, and others to use Ahmad’s role as deputy treasurer to direct official State of Ohio broker services business to Douglas E. Hampton, 39, a securities broker from Canton, Ohio, in return for payments from Hampton. Hampton funneled bribe payments in excess of $123,000 through Alo. Ahmad and Joseph M. Chiavaroli concealed additional payments from Hampton by passing them through the accounts of a landscaping business in which Ahmad and Chiavaroli held ownership interests.

As a result of the scheme, Hampton received approximately $3.2 million in commissions for 360 trades on behalf of the Ohio Treasurer’s Office. Ahmad and his co-conspirators received in excess of $500,000 from Hampton. Alo entered a guilty plea in December 2013. Both Hampton and Chiavaroli entered guilty pleas in August 2013.

Despite this widely publicized scandal in the 2010 election, Rahm Emanual brought Amer Ahmad on board in 2011, after a recommendation from Boyce.
