Suspended, Terror-linked Canadian Homeland Security Advisor Invited By US Govt to Conference on Terrorism

via Suspended Candian Homeland Security Advisor Invited By US Government To Conference On Extremism; Hussein Hamdan Has His Own Extremist Ties.

Canadian media is reporting that an advisor to a Canadian agency similar to the US Department of Homeland Security who was suspended over controversial ties has been invited by  the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of National Security to speak at a conference on fighting violent extremism. According to a CBC report:

May 23, 2015 The Canadian government might not want him anymore, but the department of Homeland Security still wants to hear what Hussein Hamdani has to say about deradicalization.

The Hamilton lawyer was suspended as an adviser on Muslim issues and security for the federal government earlier this month. But now, officials from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of National Security have invited him to speak at a conference on fighting violent extremism.

So in July, Hamdani will be heading to Washington, DC to advise government officials at the local, state and federal levels – even though he’s been suspended from doing so in his own country.

‘This is consistent with what I have been saying all along: I have been vetted already, multiple times by CSIS and RCMP as well as U.S. security agencies,’ Hamdani told CBC News.

‘Thankfully, the Americans are not playing politics’

Minister of Public Safety Steven Blaney’s office is looking into questions raised by the French TVA network about politically charged statements it alleges Hamdani made as a university student, and allegations about radical organizations that it says Hamdani had associations with.

Hamdani says he believes the decision is politically motivated because of his support for Justin Trudeau and the federal Liberals. He denies all the allegations outright.

Read the rest here.

Last month, the GMBDW discussed a Point de Bascule blog report that identified Hussein Hamdani’s ties to Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas related organizations and which included:

1) In a guide that was published by the Muslim Students Association in 1996, Hussein Hamdani encouraged Muslim student activists ‘to Islamize campus politics’;

2) In 2003, the Ihya Foundation, an organization led by Hamdani, joined with the Saudi World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) to launch the Reviving the Islamic Spirit conventions in Toronto. In 2012, WAMY’s charitable status was revoked after the Canada Revenue Agency concluded that it funded an Al-Qaeda-linked organization;

3) From 2005 to 2009, two organizations led by Hamdani transferred money to Hamas’ fund collector, IRFAN-Canada. The Canada Revenue Agency revoked IRFAN’s charitable status in 2011 after having concluded that, for the 2005-2009 period alone, it transferred $14.6 million to the terrorist organization Hamas. In April 2014, IRFAN was added to Canada’s list of outlawed terrorist groups.

New Jersey: Muslim who arranged wife’s murder & blamed Islamophobes, gets life sentence

Ain’t Islam grand? via Kashif Parvaiz Sentenced To At Least 73 Years In Wife’s Killing « CBS New York.

MORRISTOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A judge threw the book Thursday at a Brooklyn man who conspired to kill his wife while the couple was on a walk with one of their young sons in New Jersey.

Kashif Parvaiz, who was convicted in February of scheming with his Massachusetts girlfriend to kill his wife and make it look like a random attack, was sentenced to at least 73 years in prison without parole, CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported.

The August 2011 shooting occurred while Parvaiz and his wife, 27-year-old Nazish Noorani, walked with their son in Boonton, near Noorani’s family home.

Antoinette Stephen pleaded guilty to murder and other offenses and testified against him. The Billerica resident was having an affair with Parvaiz and has admitted firing the fatal shots.

She faces up to 30 years in prison when she’s sentenced next month.

Parvaiz showed no emotion when his brother-in-law, Kaleem Noorani, called him out as a murderous fiend in court.

“You are a failure as a husband, father, son, as a human being, and above all, you are an evil murderer,” he said.

Parvaiz was shot in the leg and claimed they were targeted in an anti-Muslim attack. But his story unraveled, and Stephen eventually admitted she killed Noorani under orders from Parvaiz.

Investigators recovered the murder weapon from his SUV.

The defense team asked the judge to Parvaiz to 30 years, but prosecutor Matthew Troiano strongly disagreed, calling Parvaiz a coward who endangered his own son.

“He put that little boy into direct harm’s way,” Troiano said. “After your wife is shot, you do nothing. You don’t run to her. You run away.”

At the trial, the prosecution presented evidence that Parvaiz considered other ways to kill his wife, including poisoning her.

Gilson called “cold-blooded” and “beyond redemption” in sentencing him.

“He did in fact show us plenty of remorse and regret and emotion,” defense attorney John Bruno said. “Unfortunately, those feelings did not come through to the trial judge.”

Parvaiz is planning to appeal his conviction and sentence.

He was convicted of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, endangering the welfare of a child, child abuse, hindering apprehension by lying to police and weapons charges.

San Diego: Taxpayers now funding Muslim’s halal school lunches

Taxation for Islamization. Recall San Diego county has been overwhelmed by Iraqi Immigrants.

Here’s just one side-affect, via San Diego school serves halal food after students go hungry. h/t TROP

A San Diego school added “halal” food to its weekly menu after receiving complaints from Muslim parents who found their children to be going hungry.

The moves comes as part of a pilot programme that aims to serve minority students, which make up majority of the student body at Crawford High School.

Under an Obama administration program, schools qualify for universal free lunches if over 40 per cent of the families of the students qualify for some other federal assistance.

Parents complained to the school administrators that their children were coming home hungry; despite the school offering free lunches to the entire student body.

San Diego Unified’s Food Services Director Gary Petill wondered why, if all the students had access to free food, they were going hungry. It was then discovered that many of the students were not eating because the food was not halal. The school then added halal-approved chili lime chicken bowl to the menu twice a week, after which Petill said that 300 more students were eating on those days.

“It’s Mary’s Free Range, vegetarian-fed, antibiotic-free, hormone-free, air-chilled organic chicken that you’d find in Whole Foods,” Petill said.

He further noted the few cents more it costs per drumstick is offset by the larger number of students eating as schools are reimbursed by the federal government based on the number of meals served.

The federal government doesn’t sell anything (except lies). It’s funded by American taxpayers.

Even non-Muslim students enjoyed the new offering at the school cafeteria. 17-year-old Rosa Duarte joined her Muslim friends in campaigning for the halal lunches.

“I normally will not eat at school because the food options were not good,” Duarte said. “But with the halal chicken drumstick bowl, I actually am eating at school and I have more energy to go through the day and then go to my sports afterwards.”

Petil said based on early indications, the school district would continue to expand its options to meet the needs and tastes of other minority students going forward.


The false meme being pushed by conniving Muslims and swallowed hook, line and sinker by the Islamophilic media is that poor Muslim immigrant students are going hungry. It’s nonsense. If you don’t like the “free” food, buy and bring your own.

The same false meme was used in New York: Push for taxpayer-funded sharia food In NYC schools.

Texas: Muslim Gets 40 Years in Prison in $116 Million Medicare Fraud Scheme

via FBI — Assistant Administrator of Riverside General Hospital Sentenced to 40 Years in Prison in $116 Million Medicare Fraud Scheme.

The former assistant administrator of Riverside General Hospital was sentenced today to 40 years in prison for his role in a $116 million Medicare fraud scheme. To date, 10 individuals have pleaded guilty or been convicted for their involvement in the scheme.

Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson of the Southern District of Texas made the announcement.

Mohammad Khan, 65, of Houston, the assistant administrator who oversaw many of the partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) at Riverside General Hospital, pleaded guilty in February 2012 to conspiracy to commit health care fraud, conspiracy to pay and receive kickbacks and paying illegal kickbacks. He was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Sim Lake of the Southern District of Texas. He was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $31,321,200.

According to admissions made in connection with his guilty plea, from January 2008 through February 2012, Khan and others at Riverside General Hospital operated a scheme to defraud Medicare by submitting claims for PHP services that were not medically necessary and, in some cases, never provided. Prior to Khan’s arrest, Riverside submitted over $116 million in claims to Medicare for PHP services purportedly provided to the recruited beneficiaries, when in fact, the PHP services were medically unnecessary or never provided. Khan also admitted that he and his co-conspirators paid kickbacks to patient recruiters and to owners and operators of group care homes in exchange for which those individuals delivered ineligible Medicare beneficiaries to the hospital’s PHPs.

Others involved in the fraudulent scheme already have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.

According to an IPT report, at the 2000 convention Tayyib Yunus, then leader of the Young Muslims  branch and son of former ICNA president Dr. Mohammad Yunus, urged ICNA members to send their children to fight in jihad:

“The youth is very important, as parents, for us to facilitate the youth. And, we all want to see our youth to succeed to become doctors, to become engineers; but how many of you can actually say that you want to send your son to Jihad, to Chechnya ? How many of you can actually say that? [Takbir! Allahu Akbar!] How many of you can actually say that you want to send your child [He begins to sob] Takbir! Allahua Akbar! Takbir! Allahua Akbar! [He cries uncontrollably now, after a delay, he begins to speak again] How many of you can actually say that you want to send your youth to fight in Jihad or to send them to Azhar or to these Islamic Institutions to become educated?” [Emphasis added]

Anaheim: Two (more) Muslims Arrested Trying to Join Islamic Terror Group, Wanted to Die Martyrs

You remember Anaheim, the Muslim enclave recently minted: “Little Arabia.”

via 2 Anaheim Men Charged With Supporting ISIS Wanted to Die As Martyrs: DOJ | KTLA.

Two men arrested in Southern California and charged with conspiring to provide material support to the terrorist group Islamic State had expressed a desire to die as martyrs, authorities said Friday.

Muhanad Badawi, 24, and Nader Elhuzayel, 24, both of Anaheim, were arrested by FBI special agents Thursday evening, the U.S. Department of Justice stated in a news release.

Badawi and Elhuzayel used social media to discuss ISIL and terrorist attacks, expressed a desire to die as martyrs and made arrangements for Elhuzayel to leave the U.S. to join ISIL, the release stated, citing a criminal complaint against the two men.

The men also discussed “how it would be a blessing to fight for the cause of Allah, and to die in the battlefield” in a recorded conversation last month, according to the complaint.

On May 7, Badawi let Elhuzayel use his credit card to purchase a one-way airline ticket from Los Angeles to Tel Aviv, Israel, via Istanbul, Turkey, the Department of Justice stated.

Badawi had indicated he would travel to the Middle East in the future, according to the complaint.

Elhuzayel was arrested at LAX and allegedly admitted that he planned to disembark in Istanbul to join ISIL and did not intend to travel on to Israel.

Elhuzayel’s father, Salem Elhuzayel, said his son was planning to visit relatives in Palestine when he was taken into custody at the airport. Salem Elhuzayel said it was not possible that his son was involved in any plans to join the Islamic State.

“No way that he kept that from us. Nader is just an innocent human being who was traveling to go home to see his family and enjoy a stay of one, two months and then come back,” Salem Elhuzayel said.

The family’s apartment at the Crystal Inn in Anaheim was raided by authorities, Salem Elhuzayel said.

Nader Elhuzayel’s mother believes their family is being harassed because of where they are from.

“It is big harassment and racism too because we happen to be from the Middle East. We are Muslim people. … My kids were born in this country,” Elhuzayel’s mother said. “It’s like a nightmare being in this situation.”

Badawi and Elhuzayel made their first court appearance Friday afternoon at U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, but did not enter pleas.

Badawi’s attorney, Kate Corrigan, said he understands the severity of the charges against him. She said he was a college student who had lived in the U.S. for many years.

“He’s a young man,” Corrigan said. “He’ somebody that is very concerned about his family at this point, and he’s obviously scared.”

Both men face a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison if convicted as charged.

A preliminary hearing for the two men was set for June 5.

The FBI said Elhuzayel admitted after his arrest that he was headed overseas to join ISIS terrorists, according to the complaint.

Meanwhile, FBI agents in Anaheim arrested his friend and alleged fellow terrorist supporter Badawi. Details of Badawi’s arrest were not released.

Elhuzayel’s parents, Palestinian immigrants Salem and Falak Elhuzayel, said their son is not a terrorist or sympathetic to terrorist ideals.

The two men “used social media to discuss (ISIS) and terrorist attacks, expressed a desire to die as martyrs and made arrangements for Nader Elhuzayel to leave the United States to join (ISIS),” according to the complaint.

Beginning in 2014, Badawi allegedly began posting pro-ISIS messages on Twitter under several usernames. One alleged message was “Inshallah (God willing) soon the Islamic State will take over Baghdad …”

Nader Elhuzayel, who authorities said also used several names on Twitter, allegedly spread similar messages. He also said to Badawi that he “wanted to die in the battlefield; he wanted to die a (martyr),” according to the complaint.

“It’s nonsensical talk,” Salem Elhuzayel said regarding his son’s alleged tweets. “This is not our son. Somebody must be speaking on his behalf.”

But Nader Elhuzayel allegedly repeatedly discussed with Badawi his desire to leave the country and join ISIS. And both men allegedly denounced local Muslim leaders because they did not support the Islamic State.

On May 3, Nader Elhuzayel allegedly told Badawi in a recorded conversation, “May we be united in the Islamic State.” Badawi, according to the complaint, admitted to using his phone to buy Nader Elhuzayel’s plane ticket while the men sat in his car May 7.

About six months ago, Nader Elhuzayel began worshipping at the nearby West Coast Islamic Society in Anaheim. Officials at the mosque would not comment on the arrests, though one member said Badawi and Nader Elhuzayel, who both attended the mosque, did not associate with others.

“The individuals prayed and left,” Sammy Ahmed said following Friday prayers at the mosque. “They didn’t hang out.”

While apparently posting the ISIS-supporting messages, Nader Elhuzayel also began using iPhone apps to learn Arabic and use that skill to read the Quran in its original language.

Nader Elhuzayel and a mysterious woman, who also supports ISIS through social media, talked daily and planned to get married and have children, according to the complaint.

An Orange County defense attorney appointed by the federal court to represent Badawi at Friday’s proceeding in the U.S. Federal Courthouse in Santa Ana said Badawi immigrated to the United States from Sudan when he was about 16 and has no previous criminal record.

A report issued earlier this week by the Anti-Defamation League cited 36 domestic arrests of individuals suspected of supporting terrorists so far in 2015. That figure does not include two men shot and killed earlier this month after opening fire at an event in Texas showcasing controversial cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad.

The number of terror arrests in the United States this year is approaching the combined total of each of the past two years, 26 in 2014 and 22 in 2013, according to the May 20 ADL report.
