Realism About the Jihad Threat in Oklahoma

Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett ventures where few dare to tread.

In an age of near-universal denial and willful ignorance at the highest levels about the ideological roots, nature and magnitude of the jihad threat, it is as unusual as it is refreshing to find lawmakers at any level who are willing to approach the problem honestly. State Representative John Bennett of Oklahoma, a Marine and combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, is one of an all-too-rare breed.

On Tuesday, Bennett held an “Interim Study” on “the current threat posed by radical Islam and the effect that Shariah Law, the Muslim Brotherhood and jihadist indoctrination have in the radicalization process in Oklahoma and America.” In his request to hold this study, he explained: “This will be a study of the current threat posed by radical Islam and the effect that Shariah Law, the Muslim Brotherhood and jihadist indoctrination have in the radicalization process in Oklahoma and America.”

This kind of study should have been held not just in the Oklahoma House of Representatives, but in the U.S. House, and Senate as well. That such an idea is inconceivable is an indication of the fix we’re in. And the situation is only marginally better in Oklahoma: nowadays the misinformation and disinformation about what we’re up against is so universal that anywhere the truth is told about this threat, there is significant pushback from the allies and enablers of jihad and Islamic supremacism.

And so it was in Tulsa on Tuesday. The interim study featured testimony by former FBI agent John Guandolo and Chris Gaubatz, whose exploits as an undercover agent infiltrating the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) are chronicled in the eye-opening book Muslim Mafia.

Gaubatz and Guandolo presented evidence, including land records, showing that the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City (ISGOC) is owned by the Muslim Brotherhood group the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT), that both CAIR, which has an active chapter in Oklahoma City, and ISGOC are Muslim Brotherhood organizations, and that CAIR has extensive ties to the jihad terror group Hamas, which styles itself the Muslim Brotherhood for Palestine. They pointed out that since Imad Enchassi, the imam of ISGOC, is a Palestinian and has all these ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, he likely also has links to Hamas.

Guandolo and Gaubatz did not base their case on innuendo and hearsay. They laid out FBI evidence, Muslim Brotherhood documents, and more, demonstrating that the claims they were making were based on solid evidence.

Predictably, however, the mainstream media, which we now know beyond any shadow of a doubt is simply and solely a propaganda arm for the Left and the Democratic Party, focused entirely on the presence of Adam Soltani of CAIR-OK and Enchassi. The Tulsa World ran a piece with the hysterical headline “State representative brands CAIR-OK, its director and a local imam as terrorists.” It quoted Soltani raging against Bennett: “Rep. Bennett is shamefully wasting taxpayer money to promote his own biased agenda. This hearing was a new low for Rep. Bennett, as his guests presented a biased narrative that achieves nothing more than demonizing and marginalizing the Oklahoma Muslim community.”

The World magisterially told its readers that “CAIR is a Muslim civil liberties and advocacy group working to enhance the understanding of Islam.” It didn’t see fit to mention that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. There was not a word in the World report about how CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. (Ahmad denies this, but the original reporter stands by her story.) A California chapter distributed a poster telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI, and a Florida chapter distributed pamphlets with the same message. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has been proposed or implemented and has been declared a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates.

But the Tulsa World and other mainstream media outlets that covered Bennett’s study did not see fit to inform their readers of any of that; instead, predictably enough, they portrayed the hearing as a baseless exercise in race-baiting and fearmongering conducted by a politician up for reelection.

John Bennett, and the people of Oklahoma, deserve better. There are legitimate questions about CAIR and ISGOC; Bennett dared to raise them Tuesday; for that, he is being subjected to a media lynching that is cynically designed to obscure the genuine concerns he raised – yet ever since a member of ISGOC beheaded a coworker in 2014, these concerns are more urgent than ever.

The media enablers of jihad must be decisively repudiated. Please email the Speaker of the Oklahoma House, Jeff W. Hickman, politely and courteously expressing your support for John Bennett and requesting that his hearing be just the first of a series. His email is jwhickman@okhouse.gov and his phone number is (405) 557-7339.

John Bennett has yet again stuck his neck out for freedom. In these hard times, those who are willing to do that have to hang together.

Oklahoma: Terror-linked Muslim group won’t sully Veterans Day Parade this year

CAIR and the Muslim American Society are both designated terrorist groups in the United Arab Emirates.

Controversy that erupted over a Muslim float in last year’s Veterans Day Parade will not be repeated this year, the director of Friday’s downtown parade said Monday.

An application from the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Oklahoma to be in the parade was turned down.

“Nothing I have seen or heard indicates we will have any controversy,” said Steve Porter, president of the newly formed Greater Tulsa Veterans Organizations Association.

Last year, when CAIR applied for and received a permit to have a float in the parade, the Tulsa Veterans Day Parade Association received numerous calls of protest but did not rescind the permit, saying that CAIR had a constitutional right to participate.

Porter said the controversy prompted the creation of the new organization to oversee the parade, as well as the development of rules for inclusion in the parade.

“It turns out there weren’t any written rules about who should and should not be in the parade,” he said.

“We were in danger of having the parade hijacked by political groups, social groups, who really have no ties to veterans but just want to put their ideas … in front of a crowd of people.”

He said CAIR-Oklahoma did not meet the new criteria because it is a political advocacy group and has not been involved in veterans affairs in eastern Oklahoma.

Porter said the new parade organization is “politically neutral.”

“We don’t want anyone marching under a banner of racism, or anti- or pro-abortion, or anti- or pro-gay rights. … The nightmare scenario would be to have a Westboro Baptist Church in the parade.” Westboro is a Topeka, Kansas, church known for staging anti-gay protests at military funerals.

Adam Soltani, executive director of CAIR-Oklahoma, said the group was disappointed that its application was rejected.

“We’re unhappy that we’re not in it, but we didn’t want to make a big fuss about it and create unnecessary controversy like last year. … We didn’t want to take focus off of the parade and the fact that we need to honor the veterans,” Soltani said.

Porter said the veterans groups that make up the new parade organization — Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 577, American Legion Posts 1 and 308, and the Royal British Legion — do not discriminate against people based on religion and in fact have some Muslim members. VFW Post 577 has a Buddhist chaplain.

“Someone along the way will say, ‘You’re discriminating against Muslims.’ That’s just not the case,” Porter said.

In August, he said, he talked with Raja’ee Fatihah, a Muslim U.S. veteran who was on the CAIR-Oklahoma board, suggesting that if CAIR wanted to be in the parade, it should take on some projects in support of veterans.

To his knowledge, that has not happened, Porter said.

Tulsa’s annual parade will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, taking its traditional downtown route, with some 350 vehicles and 3,800 participants, Porter said.

Oklahoma: Police question man who asked library to stop promoting Islam on cars

Source: Man pushing for removal of ‘Islamic imagery’ | Oklahoma | normantranscript.com

NORMAN — One Norman man is pushing to see the image of a hijab-clad woman removed from the Pioneer Library System vehicles. He said the image has no place on a government vehicle, because it promotes Islam and is therefore unconstitutional.

“How can they promote Islam on the side of a public vehicle in Norman Oklahoma,” Chad Grensky said. “I don’t understand it. It makes me sick. I’m not anti-Muslim. Our tax paying dollars fund these vehicles and they feel the need to promote Islam on the side of these cars. And that’s not right.”

Pioneer Library System Executive Director Ann Masters said the library chain has 11 vehicles featuring different representations of the library customer base. She said the images used reflect the diverse customer base the library serves and in no way promotes religion.

Masters said Grensky has left messages with her and she is planning on getting in touch with him to discuss it.

“We have 11 vehicles and they all have some kind of wrap with a different representation of a customer. Some have children. Some have senior citizens. Some have white people. Some have black people. The one [Grensky] is referring to has a Middle Eastern person who may be Muslim. Our effort was to make the images on our vehicles representative of our entire service area. This certainly isn’t pushing religion. And I don’t know that it actually even represents someone of that religion, but we were simply trying to represent all of our customers.”

Oklahoma City Imam Imad Enchassi said the notion that an image of a woman in a hijab promotes Islam over other religions is ridiculous and indicative of Islamophobia’s grip on the American psyche.

For starters, he said the fact that the woman is Arab and wearing a hijab doesn’t necessarily mean she is of the Muslim faith.

He said she could be an orthodox Jew or an orthodox Christian and the assumptions all point back to Islamophobia in America.

“It’s not a secret that Islamophobia is at an all-time high,” Enchassi said. “The political rhetoric that is coming out of the mouths of politicians has amplified it to a dangerous level.

“In America, we pride ourselves on liberty and justice for all and equality and yet, when a Muslim woman wants to practice her form of expression, her form of modesty, it’s looked down upon.”

Grensky said he has been contacted by the Norman Police Department and said the chief of police determined that he was not a threat.

“I told them wow, I must be someone real special,” Grensky said. “I just want to see it gone. Put all religions on every car or none. Equality across the board. There are zero cars that display Jews, Christians, or Catholics.”

Grensky said the issue isn’t about Islam or race, but the concept of separation of church and state.

“If you want to put somebody that’s of Middle Eastern descent that’s fine, but when we cross that line into faith we have a problem,” he said.

Despite Grensky’s protest, Masters said there are no plans in place to remove the image.


Who called the police on this citizen – the library or the imam? Did someone believe he violated the sharia? And why did the police even both to respond? Despite the imam’s anti-American rhetoric, “We Don’t Have An Islamophobia Problem in the US, We Have an Islamophilia Problem”.

Libraries have in fact been promoting Islam in every state across the U.S. and using taxpayer money to do so. See posts here.

Not only shouldn’t they be promoting Islam, they shouldn’t be using taxpayer funds for cars.

Oklahoma: Another “Islamophobia” hoax crime exposed; mosque member arrested, CAIR imam implicated

Source: OKC man charged in terrorism hoax after allegedly sending letter containing white powder to a mosque | News OK h/t TROP & Blazing

An Oklahoma City man was charged Wednesday with a felony after he allegedly sent a threatening letter to a mosque containing a white powder meant to be mistaken for anthrax.

Justin William Bouma, 32, was charged in Oklahoma County District Court with the rarely filed felony count known as the crime of terrorist hoax. Bouma also was charged with one misdemeanor count of malicious injury and destruction of property.

Prosecutors allege Bouma sent the letter to the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City on June 1. The imam at the mosque, 3815 N St. Clair Ave., contacted the FBI after opening it.

After testing the powder, the Oklahoma City Fire Department determined it was harmless. Police reported the powder was potassium perchlorate.

Bouma admitted to police on Aug. 18 he sent the “anthrax” letter to the mosque, police reported in a court affidavit.

Bouma “purchased some cheap detergent and placed it in the envelope,” according to the affidavit. Police reported threats in the letter were cut out of a magazine and a newspaper.

On Aug. 11, OK Halal Meat & Grocery, a Muslim-owned store adjacent to the mosque, had anti-Muslim sentiments spray-painted on the back.

Bouma admitted he painted the store but said the imam told him to, the affidavit states.

The graffiti referenced the Council on American- Islamic Relations, also known as CAIR. One statement said “CAIR not welcome.” Other remarks were crude and the terrorist group ISIS was mentioned.

Bouma reportedly attended the mosque in the past. Bouma became a suspect after authorities discovered threatening emails he had sent to mosque members, police reported.

Bouma has been held in the Oklahoma County jail since Aug. 18.


This appears to be an elaborate, yet poorly executed, hoax by the terrorist-linked CAIR.

Perpetrated by a mosque member (fall guy), at the behest of a CAIR imam, targeting a CAIR employee to make them look like targets, with a full blown PR campaign by CAIR OK, and then foisting another propaganda coup and dawah event having non-Muslims clean up the faked graffiti.  

Read about the imam from Palestine here via About the Imam:

Imam-Enchassi

Besides being the senior Imam at ISGOC, the chairman of Islamic studies and Chaplain at Oklahoma City University, an adjunct professor of Islamic studies at both Phillips Theological Seminary and St. Paul School of Theology, advisory board member of CAIR, advisory board member of Wilbery School of Religion (Oklahoma City University), Enchassi is also in charge of organizing outreach and curriculum with the Muslim and non-Muslim communities throughout the state of Oklahoma. He is a highly sought after public speaker, and he is regularly booked to address audiences at academic institutions, government functions and interfaith events to offer his expertise in Muslim principles, comparative religions, interfaith dialogue and human rights.

Among much recognition, Enchassi has received the Interfaith Alliance “Community Service Award,” CAIR “Inspiration Award,”…

CAIR’s post plot PR campaign here:

Saad Mohammed, director of Islamic news and information for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City…

Mohammed is chairman of the board for CAIR-Oklahoma.

“I was personally targeted, I think because I’m the chairman of CAIR and I’m the director of news and information for the Islamic Society so who better to target,” he said. “One statement said ‘Saad is not welcome here.’”

Another statement said “CAIR not welcome here,”and the vandals also wrote messages directed at the Islamic Society. The vandalism also mentioned the terrorist group ISIS.

Mohammed said he was not concerned that vandals targeted him by name in one of their messages. He said he takes precautions on a regular basis when he is out in the community so he has no special concerns now.

The Muslim leader said he was pleased with the response from the society’s youth group and the Interfaith Alliance.

“The response was outstanding,” he said. “We will continue educating people and pushing forward and try to bridge this gap of hate.”


Now we know why he wasn’t scared – because his team was behind the fake hate crime. But they got national media attention and submitted more non-Muslims to their dawah.

Terrorist front group CAIR has been at the front of many faked hate crimes perpetrated by Muslims and blamed on Americans, with the media falling for it every time.

We may need to start a new category for that growing list, here.

Oklahoma Beheading Case Another Example Judges, Attorneys Resistant to Linking Barbaric Behavior to Islam

Source: Oklahoma Beheading Case Another Example Judges and Attorneys Resistant to Linking Barbaric Behavior to Islam – Understanding the Threat

How many Muslims who kill in the name of Allah have to profess their loyalty to the teachings of Islam in open court before judges and attorneys realize Islam mandates violence according to sharia (Islamic Law)?

On September 24, 2014, Alton Nolen, a Muslim, sliced the neck of Colleen Hufford – a former co-worker at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma – and then proceeded to saw her head off.

NOLEN

As the case has moved through the system, defense attorneys, prosecutors, and the judge in the case seem to have no clue about what Islam teaches and why it is pertinent to the case.

Nolen, whose appearance prior to his killing of Colleen Hufford was increasingly visibly sharia compliant, stated he follows the teaching of Islam – ie the Sharia.

At the hearing in Norman, Oklahoma last Friday, after the judge and attorneys made it clear his guilty plea would likely lead to a death sentence, Nolen stated:

“I’m being (held) captive to the disbelievers of Allah, the one and only God…it’s part of my religion that when death faces you, you do not back down.”

Yet Cleveland County District Judge Lori Walkley and even Nolen’s defense attorney are concerned he is not mentally fit to make this decision.

Why?  As we have heard time and again after Muslims obey the sharia and kill non-Muslims or Muslims who do not adhere to sharia, no “religion” would teach violence against others.  But Islam does.

On June 21, 2010 in the Southern District of New York, Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad entered his guilty plea in court where he stated, “I consider myself a mujahid, a Muslim soldier…we Muslims are one community.  We are not divided.”

When the judge asked him, “Were you aware what you were doing was a crime?” Shahzad responded with “I would not consider it a crime…I don’t care for the laws of the United States.”

Right.  Because jihadis only care about sharia.

On October 5, 2010 at the sentencing hearing, Shahzad was even clearer about his motives and beliefs, yet the trial judge, the Honorable Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum, corrected him on his beliefs.

shahzad

Shahzad stated, “If I am given a thousand lives, I will sacrifice them all for the sake of Allah fighting this cause, defending our lands, making the word of Allah supreme over any religion or system. We Muslims don’t abide by human-made laws, because they are always corrupt…we don’t accept your democracy nor your freedom, because we already have Sharia law and freedom…the defeat of U.S. is imminent and will happen in the near future, inshallah, which will only give rise to much awaited Muslim caliphate, which is the only true universal world order…Blessed be the immigrants and the leader Sheikh Usama Bin Laden, who will be known as no less than Saladin.”

Judge Cedarbaum, demonstrating no apparent knowledge of Saladin and his jihad against non-Muslims stated, “He didn’t want to kill people.  He was a moderate man.”

In January 2016, Muslim Edward Archer shot a police officer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania while shouting “allah u akbar” and told police he did it in the name of Islam.  Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney stated the shooting had “nothing to do with being a Muslim.”

The President of the United States, the National Security Council, Cabinet members, mayors, pastors, and leaders in the West at all levels continue to perpetuate the lie Islam does not teach violence against others, despite the fact the only definition of “Jihad” in Islamic law is “warfare against non-Muslims.”

At the elementary school level and at the highest institutions of Islamic jurisprudence Islam teaches jihad is a permanent obligation until the entire world is under Islamic rule – sharia – and jihad is the vehicle to do it.

Where is the “other” version of Islam taught?  It is not.

Acts of jihad we witness around the world and in the United States each week are not done because Muslim have mental disorders, do not have jobs, need more money or Pepsi cola, or because of American foreign policy.

They do it because it is a permanent command from Allah to do so.

Those participating in the American legal system, specifically judges and attorneys, have a legal and professional duty to understand what Islam is as it relates to the flood of cases across our nation, and must do so if we are to have any chance of stemming the enemy in the legal arena.

Muslim convert arrested, posted mass jihad threats on two Oklahoma City malls

OKLAHOMA CITY – A metro man is behind bars after allegedly posting terroristic threats to a social media site.

Authorities said the post by 28-year-old Brian Carey led to several people being concerned about their safety at a pair of Oklahoma City malls.

“Judgement day will come this week at the Penn Square Mall and outlet mall. May Allah be with those who believe and there will be mass bloodshed and horror as I Allah will take vengeance on the scumdogs of the western world,” the post read.

“Officers were able to make contact with this individual later on in the afternoon, a little bit after 6 p.m. and he was arrested at his home,” said Sgt. Ashley Peters with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

Carey was then booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on a charge of terrorism hoax.

On Thursday, authorities served a search warrant at Carey’s home.

So far, authorities have not found anything at Carey’s home, but the investigation is still open.

Oklahoma: Muslim Who Beheaded Elderly Co-Worker Pleads Guilty

Source: Courthouse News Service – Accused Beheader Pleads Guilty to Murder

OKLAHOMA CITY (CN) – A Muslim convert accused of beheading a co-worker and nearly beheading a second at an Oklahoma food processing plant pleaded guilty Friday.

Alton Alexander Nolen, 31, of Norman, Okla., pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree murder and two counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon, the Oklahoman reported.

Nolen is accused of beheading 54-year-old Colleen Hufford on Sept. 25, 2014, at a Vaughn Foods processing plant.
Prosecutors say Nolen also tried to behead a second victim, Traci Johnson, 44, cutting her throat and face, and then tried to stab a company executive, who shot him.

Nolen’s attack was sparked by a complaint Johnson made about Nolen “not liking white people,” prosecutors allege.
Psychologist Jeanne Russell testified at Nolen’s competency trial in October, saying he wanted to plead guilty and be executed because of his religious beliefs.

On Friday, Cleveland County District Judge Lori Walkley declined to rule on accepting Nolen’s plea until Aug. 12 because a separate defense expert claims Nolen is mentally ill.

Walkley questioned Nolen for 90 minutes about the crime and if he understood he was waiving his right to a jury trial by pleading guilty.

He responded with rambling answers referencing his Muslim faith and that events in his life were pre-determined. He stopped at one point and started praying, the Oklahoman reported.
