A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media’s attacks against the U.S. government’s no-fly list for “unfairly” targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison — arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell.

It’s a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long’s cause was being championed by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.

His story got considerable media attention when his CAIR media representatives here pushed the story that Long wanted to return to his native Oklahoma from his current home in Qatar to visit his ailing mother but couldn’t because he was on the TSA’s no-fly list. They said his case represented institutional “Islamophobia.”

Long’s cause got international attention when Glenn Greenwald published an article at The Guardian saying that Long was “effectively exiled from his own country.” Kevin Drum of Mother Jones branded it the “Kafkaesque World of the No-Fly List.” CAIR has 22 article entries related to Long’s case on its website.

After several months of wrangling between his CAIR attorneys and the Department of Homeland Security, Long was temporarily removed from the no-fly list and allowed to return to Oklahoma.

Once home, however, he was still subject to FBI surveillance according to claims he made during a press conference with his CAIR handlers.

After an incident with local police and the FBI, Long was apparently placed back on the no-fly list, preventing his return to Qatar.

That prompted even more outrage from the far-Left media and garnered him an appearance with his CAIR handler on Chris Hayes’ MSNBC show:

Glenn Greenwald used Saadiq Long’s MSNBC appearance to get back in on the action:

Eventually, Long boarded a bus to Mexico and got on a flight there to return home to Qatar.

U.S. and Turkish officials confirmed Long’s arrest to PJ Media, saying that he was arrested along with eight others operating along the Turkish-Syrian border. So far, no U.S. media outlet has reported on his arrest.

Long’s Facebook page has not been updated for several months. The last entry on his wife’s Facebook page was October 23.

I have emailed Long’s CAIR handler, Adam Soltani, asking for comment. An email to his attorney Gadeir Abbas was returned as undeliverable.

Oklahoma: Hamas front group will have float in Tulsa’s Veterans Day Parade

Terror-linked Muslim group CAIR that fought for sharia law in Oklahoma will now have a float in a parade honoring veterans whom they despise. Stealth jihad – or as the Muslim Brotherhood calls it “civilization jihad” – at its finest. WhosFundingCAIRc

via Tulsa’s Veterans Day Parade participant calls Muslim group’s involvement ‘atrocious’ – Tulsa World: Religion

The Oklahoma Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has a float, and a member of conservative organization Tulsa 912 Project said it is “atrocious” to ask veterans to “march alongside people who represent our enemies in a current war.”

For the first time, Oklahoma Muslims will have a float in the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Tulsa on Nov. 11, and not all parade participants are happy about it.

“It’s something we have been wanting to do for years,” said Adam Soltani, executive director of the Oklahoma Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, based in Oklahoma City.

Soltani said the float is sponsored by CAIR-Oklahoma but will “represent the Oklahoma Muslim community, which is a very diverse community of people from all walks of life, immigrants, indigenous people.”

“We support all veterans, and we support our country, so I don’t see why anyone should have any concerns about CAIR being involved,” he said.

“We are an American Muslim organization, and American Muslims support their government, support their country and definitely support our troops who are working to defend our constitutional rights and our freedoms,” he continued.

Soltani said many U.S. Muslims have served in the armed forces and that two veterans are on the CAIR-Oklahoma board.

Larry Williamson, a member of the Tulsa 912 Project, a conservative organization, said it is “atrocious” to ask veterans to “march alongside people who represent our enemies in a current war.”

“I believe all American entrants who the parade is intended to honor should be made aware as soon as possible that they are being asked to share their honor with the Muslim Brotherhood, sworn enemy of the United States and our ally Israel and an enemy in our current war on the Islamic jihad in which American soldiers are fighting and dying,” he said in a letter to the Tulsa World.

Williamson said he has been told that his Tulsa 912 Project float is scheduled to be in line next to the CAIR float in the parade.

“I’m not a spokesman for Tulsa 912, but I won’t march alongside the Muslim Brotherhood,” he said.

Asked why he uses the term Muslim Brotherhood instead of CAIR, Williamson said the FBI has identified CAIR as an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America. CAIR has consistently stated that it has no connections with any terrorist groups.

Patsy Varnell, vice president of the Tulsa Veterans Day Parade Association, confirmed that CAIR-Oklahoma’s application to be in the parade has been accepted.

“The parade is nonreligious,” she said.

“We feel that we are exercising the rights established by the Constitution of freedom of speech, and this group has the right to participate. We do not want any problems, but we have to be fair to everybody,” Varnell said.

Ronda Vuillemont-Smith, president and founder of the Tulsa 912 Project, said the group is not asking that CAIR be removed from the parade but that parade organizers “be honest and open and let people know that they are in.”

“My concern is that the parade committee was trying to keep this information out of the public eye,” she said.

For the lazy, Federal judge confirms CAIR is Hamas.

WASHINGTON – A federal judge has determined that the Justice Department provided “ample evidence” to designate the most prominent Muslim group in America as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator.

According to a federal court ruling unsealed Friday, the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations has been involved in “a conspiracy to support Hamas,” a federally designated terrorist group that has murdered at least 17 Americans and injured more than 100 U.S. citizens.

The 20-page order, signed by U.S. District Judge Jorge A. Solis, cites “ample evidence” that CAIR participated in a “criminal conspiracy” led by the Holy Land Foundation, Hamas’s main fundraising arm in the U.S. As a result, the judge refused CAIR’s request to strike its name from documents listing it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the case.

“The four pieces of evidence the government relies on do create at least a prima facie case as to CAIR’s involvement in a conspiracy to support Hamas,” Solis wrote in his July 2009 ruling.

Oklahoma Univ’s arch dean apologizes for wearing Muslim garb after a couple of Muslims complain

It’s not like he equated Muslim terrorists to Nazi’s, he just put on Wahhabi jihadist clothing. via OU Architecture dean apologizes for offense caused by attire – OUDaily.com: News. h/t BNI

The dean of OU’s College of Architecture issued an apology Monday for wearing clothing associated with Islam at a back-to-school meeting.

A photo on the College of Architecture’s Facebook page that has since been deleted showed Dean Charles Graham wearing a white thawb and a red keffiyeh on his head at the meeting on Aug. 20.

In his apology, he said he purchased the garments when he went to Dubai. According to the apology, he asked “a number of [his] Muslim friends around campus and in Norman to see if [his] wearing the attire would be offensive in any religious way,” to which the answers were “all resoundingly ‘no.'”

OU press secretary Corbin Wallace told The Daily in an email that three or four people anonymously contacted the president’s office regarding Graham’s attire. He said Graham took an appropriate step in emailing the apology to faculty and staff.

Graham described himself as “always striving to be inclusive and considerate of others in every context” in his apology, and said his Muslim friends thought wearing the attire would be “a nice gesture of diversity and acceptance of other cultures.”

The College of Architecture has a study abroad program in Dubai which explores building design and construction within the city. The program has sent more than 30 students there in the past couple of years, Graham said in his apology.

Graham welcomes anyone who wants to discuss the matter with him, according to his apology, but declined to comment to The Daily when staff attempted both to call him and to speak with him in person.

Groveling dhimmitude. Apology letter at the link above.

churchill-appeaserUpdate: The groveling continues as OU tries to spin it with, No ‘religious battle’ over Middle Eastern attire, OU dean says

“It’s not a religious issue by any stretch as far as I’m concerned,” he said.

However, a leader with the Council on American-Islamic Relations-Oklahoma (CAIR-OK) chapter, thinks otherwise.

He may not think or want it to be a battle about religion, but Muslims think quite differently. Muslims battle for every inch. They take advantage of every weakness. They are relentless. To them this is a religious battle – and they won. A few anonymous emails or calls and they forced an apology. It won’t stop there.

Even the terrorist-named and HAMAS-linked, sharia-supporting CAIR says it’s about religion. And they want this dhimmi to keep proselytizing. Look for the dean to partner with the known terror-linked group in the future to spread awareness about Islam in the near future.

Christian Woman Interrupts Muslim Prayer inside Oklahoma State Capitol, Police Throw Her Out

Turning the Capitol into a mosque. Fast forward 20 years after millions more Muslims are in your towns and cities. What then?

via Courageous Christian Woman Interrupts Muslim Prayer inside State Capitol Building with the ‘Our Father’; Police Turn Backs on God and Throw Her Out – Walid Shoebat.

As Muslims were gathered inside the Oklahoma state capitol and were praying loudly, a brave Christian interrupted their prayer with the Lord’s Prayer – the Our Father. That’s the good news. The bad news? Police threw her out and allowed the Muslims to continue praying.

Oklahoma State Rep. John Bennett is one of the very few politicians who will speak openly about the threat of Islam. During the event that was interrupted by the ‘Our Father’, it was Bennett who passed out Bibles and fliers which included questions like:

“Will you denounce the terrorist organization Hamas?”

As for the woman who began praying the ‘Our Father’, it appears to be the same woman who interrupted Texas Muslims at the Capitol Day last month:

As was the case at the Oklahoma State Capitol, there was one Texas State Rep. who took a stand against similar proceedings in Austin. Her name is Molly White and she put an Israeli flag on her desk while asking all Muslims who entered her office that day to pledge loyalty to the U.S. White was scorched by the media and was even thrown under the bus by the Texas State Speaker Joe Straus. Nonetheless, she didn’t back down, releasing this YouTube video within days:

The woman who shouted the ‘Our Father’ also appears to be the same woman who righteously interrupted Muslim prayers inside the Washington National Cathedral last November:

It’s safe to say that this woman has more guts than the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives John Boehner, who introduced an Imam on the floor of the house one day prior to the National Cathedral incident, and bowed his head as the Imam delivered a prayer:


Terror-linked Islamic Group Holding “Muslim Day” At Oklahoma Capitol 2/27


CAIRdiorama32  cair-terror

via Muslim Day To Be Held At Oklahoma Capitol | KGOU.

The Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations announced its first ever “Muslim Day” will be held at the Capitol on Friday, Feb. 27. Executive Director Adam Soltani says he expects more than 100 people to attend the event.

Soltani says the event is designed to encourage members of the Muslim faith to be civically engaged and communicate with their lawmakers.

A similar event at the state Capitol in Texas last week sparked outrage after a group of vitriolic protesters heckled Muslim participants. One woman grabbed the microphone and yelled about Islam.

Hopefully, some Sooners will be standing up for freedom and against Islam on 2/27 as well.

Although the Legislature adjourns for the week on Thursdays and members head home, six legislators and an attorney from the ACLU have agreed to meet with the Muslims who come to the Capitol that day: Sen. John Sparks, Rep. Mike Shelton, Rep. George Young, Rep. Emily Virgin, Sen. Anastasia Pittman, and Brady Henderson of the ACLU.

Considering Muslim terror groups are slaughtering blacks across Africa in enormous numbers, it’s surprising black Democrats in Oklahoma have fallen for the Muslim Brotherhood-front group CAIR’s ruse and will actually meet with them.

Events that day will include a panel discussion on racial profiling, and a discussion on religion in public schools.One GOP legislator in particular has been a rather vocal critic of CAIR in recent weeks. And in 2010, Oklahomans overwhelmingly endorsed State Question 755. That measure would have barred the Oklahoma judiciary, when interpreting cases for state law, from considering any court case in which the Islamic system of Sharia law figured prominently in the decision. SQ 755 also forbid Oklahoma jurists from embracing international law as a precedent when making decisions that affected Oklahomans.

 It’s unclear why Oklahoma politicians would meet with the group. Even well-known Democrats shun the terror-front group.


Update: According to NewsOK – who fails to mention CAIR’s terrorist convictions, deportations and other links – there is a protest Facebook page:

A Facebook page called “Protesting Muslim Day at the State Capitol” lists details of a planned protest by a group called Overpasses for America Oklahoma.

Oklahoma: Muslim arrested in knife attack, said Muslims should ‘step up’ beheadings

At least the third Muslim arrested in a beheading-related crime for Islam in less than two months.

via Man arrested, accused of slashing man after heated religious conversation | Oklahoma City – KOCO.com.

A metro man is in jail accused of attacking another man over religion differences.

On Monday authorities responded to a 911 about an assault in the 1400 block of Northeast 11th Street.

Upon their arrival, officers learned the victim, Jerome Bullockand 54-year-old Jimmy Stepney had been arguing about the Bible and the Quran.

The report went on to say Stepney had been making comments about beheading people.

“We were watching the news,” said Bullock. “He said he felt like more Muslims need to step up to the plate and do certain thing. He was talking about beheading people.

Because of the statement, Bullock says he asked Stepney, who’d been staying with the family, to leave.

Stepney complied but eventually came back and started arguing with Bullock.

According to the arrest affidavit, the pair began fighting in the yard after Stepney allegedly punched the victim.

Witnesses told officers that Stepney had a knife and was attempting to stab the victim. That’s when Bullock’s mother, Diane Range, came out with a baseball bat and started swinging at Stepney.

“He was trying to kill my son,” said Range.

Bullock suffered minor cuts from the fight and Stepney was able to walk away.

“I was just trying to pay it forward by helping him out,” said Bullock. “Instead I got a lot of cuts and hurt feelings.”

Stepney is charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery.
