A Pennsylvania teenager indicted for supporting Islamic State was hit with fresh terrorism charges on Wednesday, as U.S. prosecutors accused him of posting online the names of approximately 100 U.S. military members and exhorting his followers to kill them.

Jalil Aziz, 19, used his Twitter account to release the names, addresses, photographs and military branches of the U.S. service members, according to a superseding indictment filed in federal court in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Aziz told his followers to “kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their street thinking that they are safe,” according to authorities.

The information had previously been posted online by supporters of Islamic State, according to Aziz’s defense lawyer, Thomas Thornton, who emphasized that the new charges are based on the same alleged acts that led to the initial indictment.

“All of these charges come from Mr. Aziz allegedly using his telephone in his room in his house,” Thornton said, calling it “teenage stupidity.”

Aziz was arrested in December on charges that he tried to help others travel to the Middle East to join fighters for Islamic State. The militant group controls territory in Syria and Iraq and has claimed responsibility for numerous mass killings, including the coordinated attacks in Paris in November that killed 130 people.

He used at least 57 separate Twitter accounts to advocate violence against U.S. citizens and to disseminate Islamic State propaganda, prosecutors said. Aziz served as an intermediary between a person living in Turkey and several members of Islamic State, according to court documents.

Prosecutors also said investigators found a “go bag” containing ammunition for an assault rifle, a black mask and a knife at Aziz’s house.

Philadelphia: After Muslim tries to kill cop for Allah, City Council backs two Muslim holidays

philly-councilmanTraitor Jones. via: City Council backs recognizing two Muslim holidays

Philadelphia City Council on Thursday called on the city and the school district to officially recognize two Muslim holidays, which would give students and employees those days off.

Speaking before a chamber packed with Muslim men wearing prayer caps and women wearing hijabs, Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. said the change would impact an estimated 200,000 Philadelphians who practice Islam.

Jones said a friend had questioned his timing, considering the recent shooting of a Philadelphia police officer by a man who said he had acted on behalf of Islam.

Philly.com left out the details: Philadelphia: Muslim Attempts to Assassinate Cop, Says Did It in Name of Islam (Video).

“I thought on it and I said words that I’m paraphrasing from another great man. ‘If not now, when? If not us, who?’ ” Jones said, as the advocates, part of an alliance that calls itself the Philadelphia Eid Coalition, recited the quotation with him.

We have a one-word answer: NEVER!

 After Council passed the resolution, many of those advocates celebrated with shouts of “Allahu akbar,” Arabic for “God is the greatest.”

The resolution is nonbinding and simply urges the city and the school district to make the holidays official. The two are Eid al-Fitr, celebrated after the monthlong observance of Ramadan, and Eid al-Adha, celebrated at the conclusion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage.

The date on which the holidays are celebrated changes each year because Islam follows a lunar calendar. But this year Eid al-Fitr will fall in July and Eid al-Adha will take place in September.

Jones said he introduced a nonbinding resolution rather than trying to mandate a change to the city’s charter through legislation because adding two holidays would impact the city’s municipal unions, and he wants to first begin a dialogue with those groups.

Philadelphia Imam Lied About Personal Relationship with Mosque’s Devout Jihadist

Last week we found out that the San Bernardino jihadist’s imam lied about knowing the killers. Again, we see another imam lying about the jihadists they know and protect. If we aren’t going to monitor the mosques it’s time to shut them. They are enemy outposts.

fallaciSource: Imam Lied About Philly Islamic State Shooter’s Ties to Mosque   h/t thereligionofpeace

Asim Abdur Rashid, the Imam of the Masjid Mujahideen in west Philadelphia, misled the public about a radical Muslim who, on Thursday, attempted to execute a police officer in the name of Islam.

While first telling the media that he had no idea who the shooter was, it was later revealed they were personal friends and that the Islamic radical was a regular at his mosque.

Additionally, Imam Rashid “lied” about the shooter’s association with the mosque, an anonymous tipster testified to police in warning of a larger terror plot.

On Thursday, Edward Archer, 30, walked up to the patrol vehicle of officer Jesse Hartnett and fired 13 rounds at him within close range in an attempted assassination. Dressed in Islamic garb, Archer was unable to kill Hartnett, who heroically disabled the Islamic extremist when he returned fire following the assault. After being taken into custody, Archer said he carried out the act in the name of Islam and pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, according to the police commissioner.

After the terror attack, Asim Abdur Rashid, the Imam of the mosque attended by the jihadi, “said he did not know Archer and was not aware if he had ever prayed there,” according to a Reuters report.

But in the past day, his tone has changed strikingly.

Imam Rashid now admits that Archer “regularly” attended morning, evening, and even midday prayers at his mosque, the Masjid Mujahideen. Mujahideen is plural for mujahid, the term used to describe a holy warrior who is engaged in jihad for Islam.

This is all a misunderstanding, Rashid now claims, saying he only knew Archer by his Muslim name.

“I know him as Abdul Shaheed… We don’t call each other by the names we had before we converted to Islam,” Rashid said, claiming he did not recognize Archer, though he was a frequent attendee of the mosque and they had a personal relationship.

“He was intelligence [sic], and he was a regular dude,” Rashid told Reuters on Sunday.

But another member of the mosque claims the opposite.

“He became more drastic. More combative,” commented Jannah Abdulsalaam. “He was kind but I noticed that change.”

Rashid’s backtracking came after police received a tip stating Archer is part of a larger terror cell.

Archer is “part of a group that consist of three others… the defendant is not the most radical of the four. And the three males still frequent the 6100 block of Pike and for the police to be careful,” read a statement taken by police from an anonymous female tipster. It is not clear whether all four suspects have ties to the Islamic State or other international jihadist groups.

She added that Imam Rashid “was lying” when he said Archer “had no association with” Masjid Mujahideen.

The Philadelphia Police, along with the FBI, have received the witness statement as a credible threat against the city.

“It’s being investigated and taken (as) credible,” Fraternal Order of Police President John McNesby stated Monday. “Whether it was Islam, ISIS, whether he was in this group, whatever the hell it is, this guy needs to be, these other three need to be looked at if it is credible, taken off the street and investigated.”

The Masjid Mujahideen in Philadelphia did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Update: CAIR Caught Lying About Philly Cop Shooter Not Going to Mosque Too


Remember the 5-year old girl kidnapped from a Philadelphia school by a fully Muslim-clad woman? We asked this about the girl’s grandfather:

Could this be the same Asim Abdur Rashid – Imam at Philadelphia’s Masjid Mujahidin who is an executive member of the Muslim Alliance in North America with Siraj Wahhaj, co conspirator in the 1993 WTC bombing? Anyone know?

We believe it is and so it’s no surprise, with his radical links, he is/was covering for the jihadists in his mosque. They train them young.

Tensions ran high in the Philadelphia Police Department Sunday in the wake of an attempted assassination of an officer by a man allegedly claiming he did it “in the name of Islam” after an anonymous tip to officers on Saturday said the threat against police in the city is ongoing.

According to a police report obtained by NBC10, an anonymous tipster told officers that, “the threat to police is not over” and that the man who shot Officer Jesse Hartnett is “part of a group that consists of three others,” adding that the alleged shooter “is not the most radical of the four.” The report obtained Sunday goes on to say the tipster told police to “be careful.”

Law enforcement officials confirmed Sunday afternoon that police did indeed receive a tip that Edward Archer, the man accused of approaching Hartnett’s patrol car at 60th and Spruce streets Thursday night and opening fire on him at point-blank range, was working among a small group of radical men. Authorities said the tip came from a woman who approached an officer on the street.

Police said they are taking the tip seriously and investigating, and that on Sunday, they were issuing memos to all law-enforcement agencies to warn them to stay vigilant as the investigation continues. They also posted on Facebook that the FBI is investigating the tip as well. [above]

Hartnett, 33, a five-year veteran, remained hospitalized on Sunday with three gunshot wounds to his arm. Doctors were working to repair nerve damage caused by the bullets.

Investigators over the weekend said that so far, they had not found anything linking Archer, 30, to the Islamic State militant group, though Archer, according to police, pledged allegiance to the group, commonly known as ISIS.

Police also said that recent trips Archer took to Egypt and Saudi Arabia have not been determined to be linked to any terrorist activity.

Archer was charged over the weekend with attempted murder, aggravated assault, assault on police, illegal gun possession and related offenses. After he was shot, Hartnett managed to get out of his patrol car and return fire at Archer, wounding him in the buttocks.

Police continued to investigate the anonymous tip on Sunday and said they planned to re-interview the tipster.


Despite what the dhimmi mayor or CBS or others say, In his confession, the shooter kept repeating “I follow Allah, I pledge my allegiance to the Islamic state,” Homicide Capt. Clark says.

Not the first Muslim to attempt the assassination of a Philly cop. Others succeeded. At least one such Muslim is a cause-celeb for Muslims and the Left.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Authorities say a Philadelphia police officer is recovering after he was shot several times during an ambush late Thursday night in West Philadelphia.

Philadelphia police commissioner Richard Ross says the officer was sitting in his patrol car around 11:30 p.m. at 60th and Spruce Streets when a gunman fired 11 shots through the driver’s side of the car.

Police are calling it an “attempted assassination.”

In a press conference, Commissioner Ross said the gun used in the attack was a stolen police firearm.

“It was stolen back in October of 2013. It was reported, and that is one of the things you regret the most when an officer’s gun is stolen, when it is used against one of your own.”

The officer, 33-year-old Jesse Hartnett, was struck several times, authorities say.

“Shots fired! I’m shot! I’m bleeding heavily!” Hartnett can be heard yelling on police radio.

Commissioner Ross says the suspect has given a full confession, saying he did it in the name of Islam.

“According to him, police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran.”

Sources say the suspect’s full confession of the alleged attack was written down and recorded on video.

Police sources identify the suspect as Edward Archer, of Yeadon.

“When you look at the video, this is one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen,” Commissioner Ross said. “This guy tried to execute the police officer. The police officer had no idea he was coming. It’s amazing he’s alive.”

Commissioner Ross said later, “We’re thankful to God he’s here today because it easily could’ve been a police funeral.” (video)

Hartnett was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center where he underwent surgery for a broken arm. Ross says the officer’s arm suffered significant damage and that he has a long road to recovery, but he is expected to be okay.

Hartnett returned fire and struck the 30-year-old suspect at least three times. The suspect tried to escape on foot, authorities say, but was quickly caught and taken to the hospital.

Sources say the wounded officer told investigators that Archer walked up to the car, appeared to be about to ask for directions when he pulled a 9 mm and opened up with 13 shots. The officer was hit then fired back and the suspect was also wounded, but he does not have life-threatening injuries.

District Attorney Seth Williams says “I’m very thankful the officer is alive. This shows us the need for smarter laws when it relates to guns on the street. My office is going to do all that we can to ensure the defendant is held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”


Pure insanity. The District Attorney wants smarter laws to guns on the street? Criminals do not abide by laws!!! Furthermore, the gun used was stolen from the cops!! How would any gun law have stopped this? Here’s one, not allowing criminals prone to gun violence to walk the streets, h/t JWF.

via Confessed cop shooter & Muslim terrorist, Edward Archer pleaded guilty to a 2012 armed assault (we made the title more accurate)

Edward Archer, 30, of Yeadon, has been named as the suspect who ambushed Philadelphia Police officer Jesse Hartnett and firing 13 shots at the officer at 60th and Spruce streets in West Philadelphia. Archer was on parole and awaiting a hearing scheduled for January 19, stemming from a 2012 armed assault.

According to court documents, Archer pleaded guilty to simple assault and carrying a firearm without a license after police said he pointed a gun he wasn’t licensed to carry at a man’s stomach, threatened him and then chased the man with the gun when the victim had broken free.

Archer was tracked down by police in 2013 and faced bevy of charges that included aggravated assault, conspiracy, terroristic threats, simple assault and others that involved firearms. He pleaded guilty last year to carrying a gun without a license, a third-degree felony, and simple assault, a second-degree misdemeanor.

According to court documents, Archer was sentenced to nine to 13 months in prison, was allowed to count time served and was paroled. Records show he was arrested April 14, 2013 and was released April 30, 2013 after posting partial bail.

Clearly what we need are smarter prosecutors, smarter district attorneys, smarter judges and definitely smarter mayors. Not to mention smarter voters. In addition to smarter laws on Islam in the jail system, smarter laws on mosques and imams and who we allow into the country.

Turkey’s Islamic Supremacist Cult Operating Charter Schools Across U.S. (VIDEO)

And they have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton’s family foundation and to her presidential campaign.

via ISLAMIC SUPREMACISM DOES BUSINESS IN U.S. VIA A TURKISH CULT:

It has become increasingly apparent that the United States is not only confronting a violent effort by Islamic supremacists to impose the program they call shariah on the rest of the world, Muslim and non-Muslim, alike. Dangerous as jihadist terrorism is, America – and the rest of the Free World, for that matter – also face what amounts to a pre-violent assault.

The Muslim Brotherhood calls this stealthy, seditious effort to “destroy us from within” a “civilization jihad.” One of its prime practitioners in this country is the Gulen Movement, a cult/business empire led by a reclusive Turkish expatriate, Fethullah Gulen, who operates from within an armed camp in the Poconos.

As The Gulen Movement monograph makes clear, one of the most troubling aspects of this cult is its success in advancing the Islamic supremacist agenda – albeit under the guise of Turkish nationalism – via one of the fastest-growing networks of publicly funded charter schools in the United States.

Fethullah Gulen is wanted on multiple international arrest warrants issued by the regime of his one-time ally, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Here in the United States, government investigators are also looking into numerous allegations against the Gulen Movement involving: indoctrination, influence operations, salary-kickback schemes, visa system abuse and more.

In fact, the allegations against the Gulen Movement extend all the way to the U.S. Congress. In late October 2015, a USA Today investigation revealed that the Gulen Movement had illegally funded more than 200 trips to Turkey for Members of Congress since 2008. It did so using false disclosure statements that concealed their Gulen sponsorship from both the legislators and the House Ethics Committee, which had been misled into approving member- and/or staff participation in the trips.

Thus, in spite of the Gulen Movement’s carefully projected image of harmony, interfaith dialogue, and tolerance, a far more troubling picture is beginning to emerge that the Center believes warrants a closer look.

Pennsylvania: Muslim Charged With Supporting Islamic State Terror Group

And the beat goes on. Another small-time player albeit dangerous. Likely an American convert – some of Obama’s favorite targets. Meanwhile, real Muslims entering the U.S. or already in the U.S. are above scrutiny. A well-timed distraction.

aziz-terroristvia Pennsylvania Resident Charged with Providing Material Support to ISIL

A Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, resident was arrested today on charges of conspiring and attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).  Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz, 19, a U.S. citizen, is charged in a two-count criminal complaint that was unsealed today in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania following his arrest.  His initial appearance will be at 4:30 p.m. EST in Harrisburg.

The arrest was announced by Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin, U.S. Attorney Peter J. Smith of the Middle District of Pennsylvania and Special Agent in Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. of the FBI’s Philadelphia Division.

“According to the allegations in the complaint, Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz conspired to provide and attempted to provide material support to ISIL by propagating their hateful rhetoric on social media and aiding individuals in their pursuit of traveling overseas to join the designated foreign terrorist organization,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin.  “A prior physical search of Aziz’s residence also revealed a tactical-style backpack in his closet, which contained high-capacity weapons magazines, ammunition, a knife, and other survival items.  The National Security Division’s highest priority is counterterrorism, and we will remain vigilant in our efforts to hold accountable any and all those who seek to provide material support to terrorists, and to disrupt potential attacks in the United States before they happen.”

“The charges in this case focus on Aziz’s efforts to assist persons seeking to travel to and fight for the Islamic State,” said U.S. Attorney Smith.  “These charges are a testament to the perseverance and dedication of those who stand watch over our nation and a clear message that those who support terrorism – will face justice.”

According to the complaint, Aziz has used at least 57 different Twitter accounts to advocate violence against the United States and its citizens, to disseminate ISIL propaganda and espouse pro-ISIL views.  Aziz is alleged to have posted a hyperlink containing the names, addresses and other identifying information of 100 reported members of the U.S. military and calls for violence against them.  Additionally, on at least three occasions, Aziz also allegedly used his Twitter accounts and other electronic communication services to assist persons seeking to travel to and fight for ISIL.  In one instance, Aziz allegedly acted as an intermediary between a person in Turkey and several well-known members of ISIL.  According to the allegations in the complaint, Aziz passed location information, including maps and a telephone number, between these ISIL supporters.

A prior search of a backpack located in Aziz’s closet identified five loaded M4-style high-capacity magazines, a modified kitchen knife, a thumb drive, medication and a balaclava.

If convicted, the defendants’ sentence will be determined by the court after reviewing factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, and the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.


The Department Of Justice (DOJ) announced that Jalil Ibn Ameer Aziz, 19, a U.S. citizen, is charged in a criminal complaint unsealed today in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.
