Oklahoma: Muslim Who Beheaded Elderly Co-Worker Pleads Guilty

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.

Oklahoma City Thunder Go Sharia with Islamic Halal Diet

Source: The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Halal Guys – WSJ

Enes Kanter has started a halal food craze that has absorbed the Thunder’s locker room after road games—and stocked it with lamb platters and chicken kebabs.

In the middle of every Oklahoma City road game, David Howarth’s phone buzzes in his pocket. The Thunder’s athletic performance coordinator excuses himself from the bench and escapes to the arena’s loading dock. That’s where he picks up the team’s dinner: takeout halal food.

This is not what most NBA teams eat after games. But the more adventurous Thunder players have done away with the traditional locker-room fare this season. Instead they’re digging into generous helpings of lamb and chicken kebabs.

The person responsible for Oklahoma City’s culinary revolution isn’t Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook or any other Thunder starter. It is Enes Kanter, the team’s reserve center, who is Muslim and observes his religion’s dietary laws.

Thunder executives took measures to accommodate Kanter’s religion when they traded for the Turkish-born big man last year and signed him to a long-term extension in the off-season. He has access to his own prayer room in the team’s arena, for example, and uses owner Clay Bennett’s office in the team’s practice center, where he uses towels as prayer rugs. The team also made sure that Kanter’s very first meal in Oklahoma City was cooked under halal standards, which means the meat was raised and slaughtered properly, and Thunder chefs started cooking for him with separate kitchenware.

But what happened next was something no one anticipated. The halal takeover started when Thunder center Steven Adams asked Kanter if he would share his post-game dinner. “Pretty much as soon as he came in,” Adams said, “I just told him that I’m eating his food, so I told the guys to order double.”

Westbrook and Serge Ibaka then began tearing into the halal trays. Before long, Thunder officials were searching the Internet for the top-rated Turkish and Middle Eastern restaurants in other cities when the team was on the road, all so they could feed a full lineup of NBA players with enormous appetites.

“It’s like a mini-party,” said Thunder medical director Donnie Strack. “Everyone wants to steal Enes’s food.”

Kanter eats halal because of his religion. Adams eats halal for a slightly different reason.

“Because it’s awesome,” he said.

Now, after Kanter’s first full season in Oklahoma City, the team has a rotation of halal restaurants in NBA cities—and their players have become food critics.

“What’s our best city?” Adams said. “Orlando?”

“Boston?” Kanter said.

“Boston was good, wasn’t it?” Adams said. “Boston was the best city. I don’t know the top five, but Boston was definitely No. 1.”

They say there is a science to halal quality: The bigger the city, the better the food. The Thunder happened to be in Brooklyn this year when the Northeast was blanketed in several feet of snow, but that didn’t stop Kanter from leaving the Thunder’s hotel in search of the borough’s standout Turkish food. That week, when the Thunder played the New York Knicks, the full team meal was a Turkish feast. Outside their Madison Square Garden locker room were tables of halal food. “Everyone’s starting to jump on board,” Adams said, “just because it tastes so good.”

But not quite everyone. Durant is the Thunder’s highest-profile halal holdout. While others peek at Kanter’s plate, Durant sticks with staples of the NBA diet, which tends to be heavy on grilled chicken and, for the Thunder, brisket and short rib. Durant still knows all about the halal situation.

“I think it’s bull—,” he joked after a recent practice. “I’ve been here for nine years and I requested some stuff after the game and I have to pay for it on my own. And the second he gets here he gets his own menu.” Durant’s faux-outrage, however, may come from his personal taste for the food: “It’s nasty to me,” he said.


Durant may have it right. Do his teammates know what makes the food halal? Shouting allah akbar while slicing the neck and letting the animal bleed to death (just as they do to non-Muslims and apostates).

Oklahoma: Veteran-Owned Gun Range That Denied Access to AK-47 Toting Terror-linked CAIR is Sued

Source: Raja ‘ee Fatihah (CAIR) v. Neal (Save Yourself Survival & Tactical Gun Range) | American Freedom Law Center

On February 17, 2016, Raja’ee Fatihah, a board member of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of Oklahoma, with the assistance of CAIR legal counsel and the ACLU, sued Chad (a disabled Iraqi war veteran) and Nicole Neal, the owners of the Save Yourself Survival and Tactical Gun Range, which is located in Oktaha, Oklahoma.

The American Freedom Law Center is representing the gun range owners.

Fatihah, a self-proclaimed sharia-adherent Muslim, alleges that he was not permitted to use the Neal’s firing range because he was Muslim in violation of state and federal anti-discrimination laws.

But the facts will prove otherwise.  On October 23, 2015, Fatihah entered the Neal’s facility with an AK-47 over his shoulder, magazine inserted. The firing range is an outdoor range, and it was pouring rain that day—no one in their right mind (at least no one without an agenda) would even consider shooting on a day like this.  Consequently, Fatihah was the only one at the range that day (in fact, there was an indoor range available to him in Tulsa if he was truly interested in only shooting).

These facts alone raise enough suspicion for the owner of a gun range (an inherently dangerous business) to ask the person to leave.  But there was more.

While no one at the range ever asked Fatihah what his religion was, he became confrontational with the owners over his religion and his adherence to sharia, further raising the owners’ concerns about this man’s motives and intent. In fact, the owners seriously feared for their personal safety.

Consequently, they asked Fatihah to fill out a form and then told him that they would get back with him regarding whether he could fire at the range. The owners then promptly (and rightfully so) did a background check on Fatihah and found out that he was a board member of CAIR—an organization with strong ties to terrorism—confirming the owners’ suspicions.

Robert Muise, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, commented:

This case is not about religious discrimination; it’s about public safety.  We should applaud Chad’s and Nicole’s vigilance. Indeed, such vigilance is the only way we will keep our society safe from violent jihadists. Had others been as vigilant with Army Major Nidal Hasan or the San Bernardino shooters, we may very well have averted those tragedies. Chad and Nicole should be congratulated for resisting political correctness and doing what was right under the circumstances.

David Yerushalmi, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, added:

The law does not require a gun shop or gun range owner—owners of an inherently dangerous business—to equip or train the next jihadist.  CAIR is a Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation criminal trial—the largest terrorism financing trial prosecuted to date, the FBI has severed all ties with CAIR, and the UAE has declared CAIR a terrorist organization.  Consequently, our clients’ public safety concerns were entirely justified.  Not only do our clients have a right to refuse to serve someone they believe to be a public safety risk, they have an obligation to their other customers, employees, and the community to do so.  This type of litigation by CAIR and the ACLU weakens our local and national security.  People should be outraged by their filing of this lawsuit.

Muise concluded:

It is evident that this lawsuit is part of CAIR’s “civilization jihad” against America and our freedoms.  Lawsuits like this are designed to intimidate and threaten law abiding American citizens so that they take no action when confronted with a situation involving a potential Islamic terrorist.  Remember the neighbor of the San Bernardino jihadists.  He feared being sued or labeled an Islamophobe by groups like CAIR and the ACLU, causing him to remain silent.  And his silence proved deadly.

Oklahoma: CAIR Client Arrested as Part of ISIS Cell in Turkey

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.
