Ohio: FBI probes Kent State professor for ISIS ties

Source: Terror 101: FBI probes U.S. prof for ISIS ties

The FBI is investigating a college professor for possible ties to terrorist groups. He maintains that he is just a Muslim convert who happens to call Osama bin Laden “the greatest.”

Julio Pino, an associate professor of history at Kent State University in Ohio, is suspected of having ties to the Islamic State group and using his class as a recruitment hub. An FBI spokeswoman confirmed to the Akron Beacon Journal on Tuesday that it is looking into Pino, who also goes by the name Assad Jibril Pino.

The agency said there was no immediate threat to the university.

“From a legal standpoint, I’m not aware that they’re going after me or charging me with anything,” Pino told Kent Wired on Tuesday. “I’m not aware of any kind of criminal investigation or charges or anything of that sort. “I’ve not broken the law.”

Kent University spokesman Eric Mansfield said in a statement released Tuesday that officials are cooperating with the FBI.

“As this is an ongoing investigation, we will have no further comment,” said Mansfield.

The Clarion Project, a New York-based research institute, examined Pino’s social-media presence and found instances where he applauded deceased al-Qaida mastermind Osama bin Laden and heaped praise on the “brave warriors” of ISIS. Its researchers captured screenshots of pro-terror messages before they were deleted.

“Sheik Osama (May Allah be Pleased with Him) was the greatest, and desrves [sic] praise for kicking off this jihad,” the Cuban-born Muslim said May 25, 2015.

Fox News reached out to Kent State for comment and was told the professor is still teaching classes.

Sophomore Brianna Wise told Kent Wired that Pino’s situation scares her.

“It freaks me out. It’s actually really scary. I’m kind of shocked,” she told the newspaper.

As Jawa Report notes, the dhimmis at Kent State has had twelve years and hasn’t fired him yet. He was even raided by the Secret Service in 2009 and nothing happened.

Ohio: Court Rules Against Muslim Teacher Who ‘Blatantly Violated’ School Policy

A rare victory against Islamic supremacists in 2015. Via Appeals Court Rules Against Muslim Instructional Aide in Ohio District

A federal appeals court has ruled against a Muslim cleric who was dismissed from his job as an instructional assistant in an Ohio school district after he disregarded orders to stop leaving school early to conduct prayer services at his mosque.

A panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, in Cincinnati, ruled unanimously against the instructional assistant even though it found he had made a facial case of First Amendment retaliation over comments he had made about the district.

The plaintiff, Abdurahman Haji, was hired as an instructional assistant at a Columbus middle school and worked in an English-as-a-second-language classroom that mostly served Somali students.

Haji claimed that district officials retaliated against him after he spoke out at his mosque and elsewhere about practices at middle school that offended him, court papers say. In 2007, he gave a lecture at his mosque complaining that the teaching of Greek mythology at the school was exposing Muslim students to a polytheistic belief system. The lecture was uploaded to YouTube, and school officials became aware of it by March 2008.

In another incident, Haji complained to a parent that he had seen a teacher hugging a Somali girl in a way that was inappropriate for a Muslim female.

School officials had given Haji permission to leave early on Fridays to conduct religious services at his mosque. But in April 2008, they rescinded the permission, telling Haji he could no longer leave the campus early without permission.

Haji left school early on two occasions after the change, and he was dismissed by the district.

He sued the school district on claims of First Amendment retaliation and religious discrimination under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

He lost in a federal district court in Columbus, and in a July 16 decision in Haji v. Columbus City Schools, the 6th Circuit court affirmed.

The appeals court said Haji made out his facial case of retaliation over his speech because district officials had clearly changed their tune about accommodating his early departures from school soon after they learned of his lecture critical of the school.

“The temporal proximity between the defendants’ discovery of the YouTube video and Haji’s termination, combined with the rescission of the [early-departure] agreement, could lead a jury to conclude that the video and Haji’s termination were causally connected,” the court said.

But that was not the end of the matter, the court continued, because even if an employee establishes that his protected conduct was a motivating factor behind his termination, an employer is not liable if it can show that it would have made the same employment decision even if the employee had not engaged in the protected activity.

The record clearly shows that the defendants terminated Haji for blatantly violating the attendance policy,” the court said. “The defendants warned Haji several times to follow the policy in April 2008, but Haji continued to leave early without signing out each Friday.”

On the religious bias claim, the 6th Circuit panel said Haji failed to make out a facial case that the district treated him differently based on his Muslim faith.

Briefly, Haji’s practice was to leave school early every Friday in order to lead prayers at his mosque.  On his departure, he would not sign out from school.  Usually, he would return to school after services, but if they ran long he would not return.

In 2007, Haji gave a lecture at his mosque in which he identified himself as a school employee and expressed “concern that the school was exposing Muslim students to the polytheistic belief system of Greek mythology.”  The video was uploaded to YouTube, and school officials learned of it from a student who told them Haji was “saying bad things about the school.”

Haji also complained to parents because female Somali students were not covering, were filmed dancing, and because he had observed a teacher (presumably male, although the opinion does not say) hugging a female Somali student “in a manner that he deemed inappropriate for a Muslim girl.”  Haji was suspended for a day for insubordination.

Around this time, school officials began to complain that Haji’s early departures were interfering with his job.  Haji was told he could no longer leave early without obtaining prior permission.  He ignored this requirement and was fired.

Haji filed a wrongful discharge suit claiming violations of his First Amendment rights (protected by Section 1983 of Title 42), Title VII, and Ohio state law.  The lower court granted summary judgment in favor of the school and dismissed Haji’s claims.  He appealed.

Last Thursday, the appellate court issued an unpublished opinion upholding the decision of the trial court.  Basically, the court said even if the school were retaliating for Haji’s comments, that’s ok, because the school had legitimate grounds to fire him, namely, his failure to comply with the attendance policy.  That was true even though the school had not enforced its policy before Haji made his comments.  Haji’s claim of religious bias under Title VII also failed, because he could not show that non-Muslim critics of the school were treated more favorably than he.

The opinion is, as noted, unpublished, which is a device courts often use for opinions on which they spend less time and attention than published opinions, and they often may not be cited as support in later cases.

Ohio: Middle school allows students to opt out of Islamic propaganda lessons

via Lesson on Islam considered optional for Wapakoneta students – LimaOhio.com – limaohio.com

WAPAKONETA — The Wapakoneta schools became the subject of national discussion this week after students in Wapakoneta Middle School’s seventh-grade social studies class had the option of opting out of a portion of the class that deals with Islam.

According to the Ohio Department of Education’s curriculum guidelines for this class, one lesson “focuses on the impact of Islamic civilization as it spread throughout most of the Mediterranean in the period following the fall of Rome and its later impact on the European Renaissance.”

Wapakoneta superintendent Keith Horner issued a statement Friday, supporting the minimal standards set forth by the department but recognizing that some topics may cause consternation.

“We do not recommend that students opt out,” Horner said. “We do, however, recognize that some curriculum topics are sensitive, and we work with our parents to work through these respective issues.”

Horner noted there have been some emails and calls made to the district in the wake of the national coverage, but its main focus, he said, is on the students.

“If they are from local folks, we are very sensitive to that, and if they’re not local, we’re just getting back to helping kids,” he said.

Toby Lichtle, assistant director of communications and outreach for the Ohio Department of Education and a Wapakoneta graduate, noted that creating the curriculum and making decisions about them is made at the district level. When asked about the reasoning for including this topic in the guidelines, Lichtle referred to the department’s learning standards philosophy.

“Social studies helps students develop the ability to make informed and reasoned decisions for themselves and the common good,” Lichtle quoted. “It prepares students for their role as citizens and decision-makers in a diverse, democratic society. It enables students to learn about significant people, places, events and issues in the past in order to understand the present, and it fosters students’ ability to act responsibly and become successful problem solvers in an interdependent world of limited resources.”

Ohio: 5 Foreign Nationals – all Muslims – Arrested with Identify Theft Equip


Well-vetted. How many did they help around and through the vetting process? via 5 arrested on Ohio Turnpike in Trumbull County

NEWTON FALLS, Ohio – The Ohio State Highway Patrol says five foreign nationals were arrested Thursday, charged with identity fraud, possession of drugs, possessing criminal tools and forgery, according to the OSHP report.

Troopers said the car they were in was initially pulled over on eastbound I-80 (the Ohio Turnpike) a few miles east of state Route 5 for an improper lane change.

They are all from in and around Columbus and are being held in the Trumbull County Jail. Officials confirmed with WCMH in Columbus that there was no terrorist link to the alleged activity.

Once the vehicle was stopped, it was searched.

According to the report, the five men arrested were Jibril Abdiselam, 24; Mohammeddeq Hassan, 27; Mohamed Mahamoud, 26; Zakaria Warsame, 25; and Said Sheikh. They are scheduled to appear in Newton Falls Municipal Court on Thursday.

Ohio: Clueless judge releases Muslim terror suspect on bond

Source: Bond issued for man, 40, accused of terrorist ties – Toledo Blade

Over the objections of federal prosecutors, a judge agreed Monday to release on bond one of four men charged with providing financial support to al-Qaeda.



Sultane Roome Salim, 40, of Columbus is to be released from the Lucas County jail once his mother posts a $500,000 property bond that includes her home and a commercial building in Cambridge, Ohio.


judge who freed jihadi

Judge James Knepp, U.S. District magistrate, ordered that Mr. Salim surrender his passport and be released to the of his mother, Shakila Salim, and his wife of nearly 15 years, Mehreen Sultan. Ms. Sultan, a citizen of Pakistan, also surrendered her passport and the passports of the couple’s three children.

Mr. Salim is charged with conspiracy to provide and conceal material support and resources to terrorists, providing material support and resources to terrorists, and conspiracy to obstruct justice. He was indicted by a federal grand jury in Toledo that also named his brother, Asif Ahmed Salim, 35, as well as Yahya Farooq Mohammad, 37, and Ibrahim Zubair Mohammad, 36.

Prosecutors allege the group conspired to travel to Yemen to give thousands of dollars to Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaeda leader who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in 2011.

Michael Tobin, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, said Asif Salim and Yahya Mohammad, both residents of the United Arab Emirates, were arrested overseas and flown to Virginia. Ibrahim Mohammad was arrested in Texas.

All three are being held behind bars awaiting transfer to Toledo.

Mr. Salim’s wife and his mother both took the witness stand at Monday’s detention hearing, assuring the court they would make certain Mr. Salim abided by the terms and conditions of his release and would contact authorities if he did not.

Under questioning by Christos Georgalis, an assistant U.S. attorney, Ms. Sultan said she knew nothing about the charges her husband faced, that she never heard him talk about working with his brother to provide funds to al-Qaeda, although she had heard him mention al-Awlaki in the past.

Judge Knepp told Ms. Sultan she would be in “a heckuva spot” if her husband violated the terms of his bond. She would be obligated to report him to the court, he said, and if she failed to do that, she could be charged with contempt of court and jailed.

“If that sounds scary, it should,” he told her.

Mr. Salim’s court-appointed attorney, Cherrefe Kadri, assured the court her client would comply.

This is a very well-educated man who has a lot of skills,” Ms. Kadri said, explaining that Mr. Salim is a chemical engineer who most recently worked as a financial analyst.

She said that since his arrest, he has been fired from his job and the family is being evicted from their apartment in Columbus. Ms. Kadri said he is willing to live with his mother in Cambridge where his wife and three children also plan to live.

Among the other conditions of bond, Judge Knepp ordered that Mr. Salim have no contact with his three co-defendants.

“I can’t imagine that a man would violate the terms and conditions and put his mom in that kind of peril, but above and beyond the property that your mother is posting, both she and the mother of your children are putting their very liberty at stake by undertaking this obligation,” Judge Knepp said.

“I can’t imagine that a man would subject his own mother or the mother of his children to some kind of peril in furtherance of his selfish interests no matter what may be guiding them,” he said.

Clearly the judge has no clue about Islam and how men regard their wives (plural) and children.

Reader Dee informs us that the attorney for the terror suspect is President of the executive committee of the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo. How convenient. We now have mosque executives representing Muslim terror suspects. If he were a member of CAIR, representing Muslim terrorists would be expected.

Also worth asking yet again, is why two of the Muslim terror suspects, both residents of the United Arab Emirates, who were arrested overseas were then flown to Virginia?

Why are we importing hard-core Muslim terrorists to the U.S.?

They will recruit and teach jihad in our prisons. They may never be deported and could be released on our streets. Sheer lunacy.

Ohio: Muslim Arrested for Soliciting the Murder of U.S. Military Members

An Akron, Ohio, man was arrested today on federal charges that he solicited the murder of members of the U.S. military.

Terrence J. McNeil, 25, appeared in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Ohio after being charged with one count of solicitation of a crime of violence.

“According to the allegations in the complaint, Terrence McNeil solicited the murder of members of our military by disseminating ISIL’s violent rhetoric, circulating detailed U.S. military personnel information, and explicitly calling for the killing of American service members in their homes and communities,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin.  “ISIL and its followers continue to use social media in an attempt to incite violence around the world, including in the United States.  The National Security Division’s highest priority is counterterrorism and we will use all of our tools to disrupt threats and acts of violence against our military members and their families.”

“As this nation honors our veterans, we must make clear that we will not tolerate threats of violence against our service members,” said U.S. Attorney Dettelbach.  “This defendant is charged with urging harm to our men and women in uniform and will now answer for those threats.”

“While we aggressively defend First Amendment rights, the individual arrested went far beyond free speech by reposting names and addresses of 100 U.S. service members, all with the intent to have them killed,” said Special Agent in Charge Anthony.  “We will remain vigilant in our efforts to stop those who wish to support these despicable acts.”

According to an affidavit filed in the case:

McNeil professed his support on social media on numerous occasions for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization.

On or about Sept. 24, 2015, using a Tumblr account, McNeil reblogged a file with the banner “Islamic State Hacking Division,” followed by “Target: United States Military” and “Leak: Addresses of 100 U.S. Military Personnel.”

The file type is a .gif file, which allows multiple still images to be looped in one file, with a timed delay between each image.  The text of the first file reads “O Brothers in America, know that the jihad against the crusaders is not limited to the lands of the Khilafah, it is a world-wide jihad and their war is not just a war against the Islamic State, it is a war against Islam…Know that it is wajib (translated to “necessary”) for you to kill these kuffar! and now we have made it easy for you by giving you addresses, all you need to do is take the final step, so what are you waiting for? Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking that they are safe…”

The file then loops several dozen photographs, purportedly of U.S. military personnel, along with their respective name, address and military branch.

The final image looped is a picture of a handgun and a knife with text that reads “…and kill them wherever you find them…”

McNeil Complaint

Huffpo and other traitorous rags would have you believe he was arrested merely for posting a gif image on social media. The fifth column runs deep. Here’s a few of the social media posts found online:
