A pair of French Bulldog puppies were stolen from two Petland stores around Columbus Sunday.

Employees at the store located at the Carriage Place shopping center said a woman wearing a black burqa with a tattoo on her asked to see a dog.

Surveillance cameras recorded the woman placing 15-week-old “Nemo” in a bag and leaving the store, staff said.

Employees at the Pickerington Petland reported a woman with a similar description stole three-month-old “Marcus” on the same day.

The pet store chain has notified police, according to a news release.

The dogs are implanted with microchips and lost pet alerts have issued by petkey.org, which is a national microchip registry service, spokesman Mike Donovan said.

“Alerts were sent out to the pet community within a 25 mile radius of the stores,” Donovan said.

Anyone with information regarding the puppies whereabouts is urged to call police.

Ohio: Muslim Terror Recruit Was Ready to ‘Cut Off the Head of His Non-Muslim Son’

via Ohio ISIS Recruit Was Ready to ‘Cut Off the Head of His Non-Muslim Son’ – Breitbart.

To show his devotion to the Islamic State terror group, and to Islam as a whole, an Ohio man arrested on Friday told an informant that he would cut off the head of his own biological son—akin to the beheadings carried out by Islamic State (ISIS) fanatics in the Middle East—to prove his worth as a Muslim, an FBI complaint against the man alleges.

Thirty-eight-year-old Amir Said Abdul Rahman Al-Ghazi, formerly known as Robert C. McCollum, was arrested by the FBI early Friday at his Sheffield Lake, Ohio, apartment. He is being brought up on charges of supporting the Islamic State terrorist organization.

On June 18, 2014, Al-Ghazi pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in a post on Facebook. Two days earlier, he shared a video on YouTube, titled “Stand Up and Pledge Allegiance to Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi,” who leads the terror group, the FBI complaint states.

In another conversation with an undercover informant, Al-Ghazi said he was convinced his faith allowed him to “behead Christians, Jews, and Atheists,” the testimony against the terror suspect said.

The FBI complaint also mentioned that Al-Ghazi was interested in attacking a police station but needed another “100 brothers” to pull off such an attack.

Al-Ghazi reportedly told another undercover informant, whom he believed was an ISIS soldier in Mosul, Iraq, that he was planning a Boston Marathon-style attack and needed assistance to find weapons and bomb-making materials.

In September, 2014, Al-Ghazi allegedly told an informant that if there were a war in the United States between Muslims and non-Muslims, “he would cut off the head of his non-Muslim son if necessary.”

He also wished that the Garland, Texas, terrorists–who attempted to massacre the attendees at a free-speech event hosted by anti-Jihad activist Pamela Geller and covered by Breitbart Texas reporters–would have been successful in their attempt to carry out a mass-killing: “If the Texas bros had maybe 6 more with them it may have been a different story,” he said, according to the FBI testimony.

 

Ohio: Muslim Arrested for Supporting ISIS, Wanted Attack in U.S.

The via Department of Justice.

Amir Said Abdul Rahman Al-Ghazi, 38, a U.S. Citizen, was arrested this morning in North Olmstead, Ohio, on charges that he attempted to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), possessed a firearm as a convicted felon and trafficked marijuana.

According to the complaint, Al-Ghazi, who changed his name from Robert McCollum earlier this year, is alleged to have pledged his support to ISIL and Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi via social media in 2014.  From July 2014 to June 2015, Al-Ghazi made multiple statements trying to persuade others to join ISIL.  He also expressed his own desire to perpetrate an attack on the United States and had attempted to purchase an AK-47 assault rifle.  Al-Ghazi has communicated with individuals he believed to be members of ISIL in the Middle East and took steps to create propaganda videos for ISIL.

Al-Ghazi was also charged with distributing a schedule 1 controlled substance – marijuana.  From the period of February 2014 through June 2015, Al-Ghazi sold almost two kilograms of marijuana to a confidential informant.  He was also charged with possessing a firearm even though he had multiple prior felony convictions.  On multiple occasions Al-Ghazi expressed his interest in purchasing an AK-47, eventually purchasing one from an FBI undercover employee on June 19, 2015.

In a meeting with a confidential source Al-Ghazi stated that he was “trying to put a squad of believers together” and he believed the United States “can be the land of jihad”. Al-Ghazi continued by making references indicating an interest in conducting terrorist attacks in the United States stating, “Have to do jihad here.”

From July of 2014 through June of 2015: 1) Al-Ghazi repeatedly pledged his allegiance to Caliph Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi and/or ISIL; 2) made multiple online statements through his social media profiles for the purpose of inciting others to commit violent jihad in the United States and/or recruiting others to join ISIL; 3) expressed his desire to commit terrorist attacks in the United States; 4) has communicated with two individuals Al-Ghazi believes to be members of ISIL in the Middle east; 5) has taken substantial steps toward creating ISIL propaganda videos with the approval and at the direction of an individual Al-Ghazi believes to be a member of ISIL, which he then intended to be disseminated through the internet by members of ISIL; and 6) attempted to purchase an AK-47 assault rifle.

Al-Ghazi also posted various statements online expressing his support for ISIL, as well as expressing to confidential sources his support and desire to commit jihad in the United States. According to the complaint, in an online social media post Al-Ghazi stated, “Islamic State is our caliphate like it or not.” In another online social media post Al-Ghazi stated, “What you all don’t get is that we sunni Muslims love Allah and his prophet more than we love our mothers. We are all Islamic state citizens. This isn’t some gang in the desert you’re fighting. This is ww3 the beginning has just begun.”

New FBI official: Muslim terror threat in Ohio is “surprising and scary”

Clearly she hasn’t been paying attention for the last decade or more. Worse, she’s afraid to say the M word. via New FBI official: Terror threat in Ohio is surprising.

CINCINNATI – The new head of the FBI’s wide-ranging Cincinnati division says the threat of homegrown terrorists in her native state is surprising and scary.

Angela Byers became special agent in charge of the office that covers 48 of Ohio’s 88 counties in late February, just after back-to-back arrests of young men in Cincinnati and Columbus in separate cases alleging they were plotting attacks in the United States. Both have pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Byers told The Associated Press in an interview she was surprised at the threat level in Ohio, and she suspects many people in the Midwest don’t realize that “violent extremists” can pop up anywhere.

“It’s scary. And it’s scary to us. I’m not sure the general public quite gets the gravity of it,” she said.

She said counterterrorism efforts are ongoing in her office, although she couldn’t comment on any possible other cases.

“It seems like once we get one guy, another guy pops up high on the radar,” she said. “We just keep moving from one to the next.”

The cases that broke this year in her division were the arrests of Christopher Lee Cornell, of suburban Cincinnati, on charges he planned to attack the U.S. Capitol, and Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud, 23, of Columbus, accused of planning to attack a military base or prison after returning from terrorist training in Syria.

The 25-year FBI special agent from Shadyside, in eastern Ohio, came to Cincinnati from FBI headquarters, where she headed the financial crimes section of the Criminal Investigative Division.

In other FBI posts, she has investigated financial fraud, health care fraud, public corruption and drug crimes, among assignments.

Ohio High School Invites All Female Students to Wear Islamic Head Covering – Then Cancels After Backlash

via High School Invites All Female Students to Wear an Islamic Head Covering — Now Issuing an Apology | TheBlaze.com.

An initiative that encouraged female high school students to voluntarily wear a hijab — an Islamic head covering — during the school day on April 23, has been canceled following intense controversy, with the school’s principal issuing an apology to parents.

Principal Mindy McCarty-Stewart of Mason High School in Mason, Ohio, officially announced the cancellation of the “Covered Girl Challenge” in an email that she sent to parents on Thursday night, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The initiative, organized by the Muslim Student Association, sparked backlash after a previous email was sent by school officials on Thursday morning that appeared to endorse the effort, leading McCarty-Stewart to later apologize to the community.

“This communication should not have come from our Student Activities Department because this was a student-led initiative, rather than a school-sponsored activity,” she said of the initial message. “We will put procedures into place in the future that ensure that any communication from a school email is for a school-sponsored event, and not merely supported by a student-run group.”

“This (previous) communication should not have come from our Student Activities Department because this was a student-led initiative, rather than a school-sponsored activity,” McCarty-Stewart wrote in the email. “We will put procedures into place in the future that ensure that any communication from a school email is for a school-sponsored event, and not merely supported by a student-run group.

“As the event spread beyond our school community, however, we received many strong messages that made me reconsider the event’s ability to meet its objectives. I now realize that as adults we should have given our students better guidance. After much consideration and after talking with the student event organizers, we have cancelled the event.”

It should be noted that the principal did not apologize for the Islamic propaganda stunt pushed by (parents of) the Muslim Student Association (a group with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood). She apologized for sending the email endorsing/promoting the Muslim Brotherhood group’s attempt to submit non-Muslim girls to the sharia (with your tax dollars).

The principal went on to say that negative messages the school received following coverage of the event led her to reconsider its viability.

“After much consideration and after talking with the student event organizers, we have cancelled the event,” she said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The initial email invited all female students to participate in “A Covered Girl Challenge” — an opportunity that the communication said would “allow students to wear a headscarf for the whole school day.”

This was to be followed up with an event that included a discussion about the experience. Parents who wanted their children to participate were asked to submit a permission slip.

Controversy reportedly first broke out after JihadWatch.org, an anti-extremism website run by Robert Spencer, published a story critical of the event after he said parents reached out to him to express their concerns.

“When is A Cross-Wearer’s Challenge day at Mason High? When is A Yarmulke Wearer’s Challenge day at Mason High? Or is it only Islam that gets this treatment?” he asked. “Also, I am looking forward to Mason High’s Uncovered Girl Challenge, in honor of Aqsa Parvez, whoseMuslim father choked her to death with her hijab after she refused to wear it; and of Amina Muse Ali, a Christian woman in Somalia whom Muslims murdered because she wasn’t wearing a hijab.”

Spencer is now claiming victory after the event was canceled, though some parents have defended the school, saying that “A Covered Girl Challenge” was an event that was created and led by a student-led club, and that officials did nothing wrong.

A battle continues to go back and forth on Facebook, though it appears the matter is settled for the time being.


The battle for the souls of your children and theirs is being waged at all levels. Stand and fight now or the atrocities happening in the Middle East and Europe will undoubtedly be happening to future generations of American children – particularly girls (i.e., rape jihad) as Muslim importation/immigration continues unabated.

Who wants a future similar to the conquered lands the Muslim Brotherhood calls home, where: An Egyptian elementary school teacher was arrested for beating a girl and cutting off a lock of her hair because she was not wearing a hijab?

Ohio: Muslim arrested, ‘wanted to go to Texas military base and kill 3 or 4 American soldiers execution style’

via Ohio man who trained with al Qaeda cell in Syria arrested after US return | Daily Mail Online.

A 23-year-old resident of Columbus, Ohio, who trained with a group affiliated with al Qaeda has been arrested and charged with plotting an attack on American soil, the Justice Department revealed today.

Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud, a naturalized American citizen of Somali descent, had been instructed by a cleric to return to the United States and carry out an act of terrorism, the indictment said. 

The Justice Department stated that Mohamud was also an Islamic State sympathizer, and that his brother, Abdifatah Aden, was killed fighting with the group in Syria in 2013.

According to court documents, Mohamud left the US a year ago with the intent to go to Syria and train with a terrorist group linked to al Qaeda in Iraq.

In April 2014, he purchased a one-way ticket to Greece, but during a layover in Istanbul he failed to board a connecting flight to Athens and instead made his way to Syria.

Once he reached his destination, Mohamud stated that he received training in shooting weapons, breaking into houses, explosives and hand-to-hand combat.

The 23-year-old Columbus man aloes said that after completing his training, a cleric with the group Jabhat al-Nusrah instructed him to return to the US and commit an act of terror.

The 23-year-old returned to the US in June 2014 with a plot to attack a military base or a correctional facility, targeting people in uniform, according to court documents.

‘Mohamud talked about doing something big in the United States,’ the papers cited by ABC News indicate. ‘He wanted to go to a military base in Texas and kill three or four American soldiers execution style.’

On Thursday, Mohamud was indicted on one count of attempting to provide and providing material support to terrorists, one count of attempting to provide and providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, and one count of making false statements to the FBI.

The first two counts, providing material support to terrorists and providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization are each crimes punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

Making false statements involving international terrorism carries a maximum sentence of eight years in prison.

Mohamud was arrested on state charges February 21, 2015, and is expected to be transferred into federal custody based on today’s indictment.

Before Mohamud’s brother was killed in battle on or around June 3, 2014, the two had exchanged emails discussing the 23-year-old’s plans to travel to Syria and fight with Islamic State.

In February, Mohamud asked Abdifatah Aden how he could send him money.

Later that month, Mohamud was arrested at his Columbus home for allegedly providing a computer tablet an other material support to terroist organizations aborad.

Prosecutor Ron O’Brien at the time asked a judge to set Mohamud’s bond at $1million saying he was a flight risk and posed a threat to public safety.

Mohamud’s attorney, Sam Shamansky, insisted that his client was not a terrorist and would not flee because he was taking care of his ailing mother in Ohio.

And:

Abdirahman Sheik Mohamud, 23, of Columbus, left the United States in April 2014 for the purpose of training and fighting with terrorists in Syria, according to the Justice Department. He had become a naturalized citizen only two months earlier.

Mohamud returned to the United States in June 2014 with a plan to attack a military facility or a U.S. prison, according to the charging documents.

“Mohamud talked about doing something big in the United States,” the documents say. “He wanted to go to a military base in Texas and kill three or four American soldiers execution style.”

Top U.S. Muslim Cleric Dr. Salah Soltan Sentenced to Death in Egypt

via Top U.S. Islamic Cleric Dr. Salah Soltan Sentenced to Death in Egypt | PJ Tatler.

by Patrick Poole

A man once hailed as “one of the most respected Islamic scholars in the country” was sentenced to death today in an Egyptian court after being found guilty on charges of inciting murder.

Dr. Salah Soltan, a senior member of the international Muslim Brotherhood, lived and worked in the U.S. for more than a decade.

 He is still listed as a member of the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) on their organizational brochure.

Al-Ahram reports:

A Cairo criminal court sentenced Mohamed Badie, the Muslim Brotherhood’s supreme guide, and 13 other leading members of the group to death on Monday for inciting murder in the now infamous case known in the media as “Rabaa control room.”

The 14 convicted include Muslim Brotherhood spokesperson Mahmoud Ghozlan, former Kafr El-Sheikh governor Saad El-Hossainy and preacher Salah Sultan. The court has also set the date of 11 April to announce its verdict concerning other defendants in the case.

The court has referred the death sentences to Egypt’s Grand Mufti for revision. The referral of the sentences to the Mufti is the first step in the legal process required to enact a death sentence. The Mufti’s decision is not binding. However, following his decision the court will issue a final verdict. Once a final verdict is issued, defendants can appeal.

Badie and another 13 Brotherhood figures are convicted of setting up an operation after the violent dispersal of the Rabaa Al-Adaweya protest camp in mid-August in 2013 to direct the movements of Brotherhood supporters across the country as part of plans to defy the state and spread chaos, as well as plot attacks on police stations, private property and churches.

Soltan was arrested in September 2013 as he tried to flee to Sudan, and was charged with incitement to kill and attempted murder.

His son Mohamed, who has become a cause celebre for the American media and U.S. Islamic organizations, was also convicted in the current case and will be sentenced on April 11:

The story of Salah and Mohamed Soltan will not be unfamiliar to regular PJ Media readers.

Just last week, Mohamed Soltan was trying to paint himself in court as an innocent spectator swept up in the aftermath of deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi’s overthrow. I noted here that multiple Western media reports at the time identified Mohamed as one of the top leaders organizing the violent Muslim Brotherhood protests in Cairo following Morsi’s removal from office.

Salah Soltan has also been the subject of several of my reports here at PJ Media going back to January 2009 when he appeared on Al-Nas TV threatening America with death and destruction for its support of Israel.

At the same time the elder Soltan was threatening America on Middle East TV, his son Mohamed was seen leading anti-Jewish genocidal chants in front of the Ohio Statehouse…


 

Read it all. Then reflect back on yesterday’s post, Mohammed Soltan was former President of the Muslim Students Association.
