By Leo Hohmann

A South Dakota newspaper that failed to report on the case of a Somali man convicted of trying to molest a severely handicapped woman, changed gears Wednesday after being outed by WND and decided to publish a story about the crime.

The story ran on page three of the Aberdeen American News under the headline “Sentencing later this month for a man convicted of attempted sexual contact.”

But the newspaper left out an important detail.

The convicted sex criminal, 39-year-old Liban Mohamed, was a recently arrived refugee brought to the state from Somalia at the invitation of the U.S. government. He had been in the country only about a week and in Aberdeen only one day when he wandered up to a group home and tried to molest a 31-year-old mentally handicapped woman who was sitting outside the facility.

Mohamed, freshly arrived in the U.S. just days prior, wandered more than a mile from his hotel on foot and preyed upon a mentally handicapped woman at the Aspire Inc. residential care facility, which houses about 150 handicapped people. His victim was left unattended for only minutes. When a caregiver returned, she caught him with his hand between the disabled woman’s legs, reaching toward her private parts.

AAN’s belated story also neglected to mention that Mohamed had been brought to Aberdeen to work in the local meatpacking plant, DemKota Ranch, which has become a magnet for cheap refugee labor.

WND contacted AAN Executive Editor J.J. Perry and asked why he omitted the information about Mohamed being a refugee.

“Because I don’t know that it was a fact he was a refugee. We weren’t there [at the trial],” Perry said, after which he was reminded that the state’s attorney, Christopher White, confirmed for WND that Mohamed was a refugee and that this information was offered by Mohamed’s own defense attorney at trial. It was part of the court record in the defense attorney’s opening statement.

Perry indicated to WND the previous day that his paper’s failure to report the story initially was not intentional.

WND’s calls to Aberdeen Police Chief David McNeil were not returned Wednesday seeking comment on whether his agency covered up the crime when it happened on July 30, 2016. Mohamed was indicted Aug. 15 and went to trial on Dec. 20 just a few days before Christmas.

Neither McNeil’s department nor the local sheriff’s office has provided a mugshot of the convicted sex offender. South Dakota is one of the few states where mugshots of convicted criminals are not considered public record.

Lutheran Social Services South Dakota, a federal contractor, is responsible for resettling most of the refugees sent to the state but has not addressed how it could leave a man from Somalia, in the country for only a week, on his own to wander the streets looking for a vulnerable female.

South Dakota: Muslim ‘Refugee’ Sexually Assaults Disabled Woman Days After Arriving in US

A refugee newly arrived from Somalia has been tried and convicted for attempting to sexually assault a special-needs woman while she was sitting outside of a home for the disabled in Aberdeen, South Dakota.

Liban Mohamed, 39, was in the United States for only about a week when he tried to force himself on a 31-year-old woman with severe disabilities. He is not a U.S. citizen, but whether he will be deported in the wake of his conviction remains unclear.

The trial for Mohamed was held just a few days before Christmas and not a word of the conviction has made it into the local media, residents of Aberdeen told WND on Tuesday.

Mohamed speaks no English and required two interpreters at trial, according to the state’s attorney who prosecuted the case.

“I do know he lived in Aberdeen,” prosecutor Christopher White told WND. “The day that it happened, he was staying at the White House Inn hotel in Aberdeen. What came out at trial, in his defense attorney’s opening statement, was that he arrived in Aberdeen that day and had only been in the United States for approximately a week, and he had come to work at the beef plant in Aberdeen. But I don’t know if he had already started working or was about to start work there.”

Mohamed mentioned to law enforcement that he had been hired on at the Demkota Ranch beef plant, White said.

WND called the executive editor of Aberdeen’s daily newspaper, the American News, and asked why nothing has been reported on the crime committed by Mohamed. He said he had no knowledge of Mohamed’s arrest, trial or conviction.

“I’m not seeing it in our system, and I really don’t recall it,” said editor J.J. Perry when asked about the case Tuesday by WND. “I’ll have to talk to our court reporter. It might be we just missed it on the docket.”

The newspaper’s court reporter, Elisa Sand, did not attend the trial, WND was told by officials who were present on Dec. 20.

Nor has the case received any coverage from local TV stations in South Dakota or neighboring Minnesota.

Mohamed was convicted of attempted sexual contact with a person incapable of consent, which is a class 4 felony in South Dakota and punishable by up to five years in prison. The victim is a mentally impaired woman living at a facility operated by a local nonprofit, Aspire Inc. She is unable to fully communicate, said White.

Two police officers and a woman employed with Aspire testified against Mohamed at trial, according to court records. Continue reading

South Dakota: Lutheran Social Services Populating Aberdeen With Muslim Refugees

South Dakota could eventually have another direct resettlement site for refugees. A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. Currently any refugees who migrate to South Dakota arrive in Sioux Falls or Huron. A number of them choose to secondarily migrate to Aberdeen, and officials are considering making that city a direct resettlement site.

Tim Jurgens is the State Refugee Coordinator. He directs the Center for New Americans with Lutheran Social Services. Jurgens says he and others are trying to figure out the number of refugee eligible individuals that currently live in Aberdeen, to see if there’s a need to make it a direct resettlement site.

“Currently if they secondarily migrate into Aberdeen, so they arrive somewhere else, and they secondarily choose to move, it creates a bit of an issue,” Jurgens says. “Because when folks secondarily migrate, you don’t necessarily have all of the information you want or need for effective integration. Secondly, the funding is not necessarily going to be there immediately to assist the community. And then third, it’s just that you don’t know what services they’ve already achieved or already had, so you have to really restart that process for appropriate integration from a delayed time frame. So those would be the advantages to being a direct resettlement site.”

Jurgens says a staff member from Huron is traveling to Aberdeen at least twice a month to begin initial services. He says he’s working with state government and local stakeholders. A new site requires letters of support stating they’re on board with numbers or programming. He says no decision has been made yet. Aberdeen Mayor Mike Levsen says he’s in favor of more refugees coming to his city.

“We need workers, and we certainly would be glad to have more friends and neighbors and more children in our schools and more cultures that we can learn from,” Levsen says.

Levsen says growth can come with challenges, but also opportunities.

Tim Jurgens with Lutheran Social Services says people with refugee status tend to move to a second site either to be near family and friends, or to find work. He says with the state’s low unemployment rates, he expects more secondary migration to other towns in South Dakota.


Lutheran’s are a busy lot, helping to Islamize the United States at a steady clip.

PS:  Are you within a 100-mile radius of a Muslim refugee resettlement site? If so, you are in the (ever-expanding) target range.

South Dakota: University professor refuses terror-linked CAIR & student bullying to cancel film on honor killings

When Muslims can dictate what movies are shown on a university campus in South Dakota, then it’s clear that the threat of Islam and sharia is far greater than most Americans imagine. And the school, without notice, did just that – submitted to the sharia demands once already – and canceled a scheduled viewing. via Film provokes censorship, tolerance debate at USD. h/t BNI

A professor at the University of South Dakota is refusing calls to cancel the screening of a controversial documentary that depicts brutality against Muslim women.

The “Honor Diaries” is scheduled to be screened at the university’s annual women and gender conference on April 10. But another screening of the film that was supposed to take place Sunday didn’t happen for reasons unknown, and there is pressure from some staff and faculty members to cancel next month’s showing.

Miglena Sternadori, a professor of media and journalism and the women and gender studies coordinator, is refusing to bow to that pressure, saying the film depicts issues that are relevant to the women and gender conference.

“It’s just the wrong thing to do to censor a movie,” she said.

The women and gender conference, which started in the mid-1980s, has been no stranger to controversy, said Cindy Struckman-Johnson, a professor of psychology since 1980 and an original founder of the conference. Topics have included abortion, gay and lesbian issues long before they were mainstream subjects, and other hot-button topics.

But Struckman-Johnson said she’s never seen this amount of pressure being exerted by students, staff and other faculty members to force Sternadori to cancel the film.

“I’m just absolutely stunned,” Struckman-Johnson said. “I just couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe that a chair of a committee would be literally bullied. They kept saying, ‘It’s not censorship,’ and we kept saying, ‘Yes it is.'”

The film features women activists — including Muslims — who work in a culture that condones the honor killings of women, female genital mutilation, forced marriages of young girls and other abuses of women. Released in 2013, “Honor Diaries” has been praised for bringing attention to the plight of women in Middle East cultures. It’s also been criticized as anti-Muslim propaganda.

A chief critic of the film has been the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Spokesman Ibrahim Hooper called the film “Islamaphobic,” saying the creators behind “Honor Diaries” are well known “anti-Muslim bigots.”

“We’re talking the worst form of anti-Muslim bigotry couched in terms of a legitimate issue,” he said.

The issue of abuse of women should be discussed in college forums, Hooper said. But not with the film as a part of that dialogue.

“You don’t have to help promote the agenda of Islam haters,” he said. “That’s what you do when you promote this film.”

The film has inspired similar controversies on college campuses across the country.

At USD, the controversy started with a complaint from Musheera AnisAbdellatif, a professor in the health sciences department, Sternadori said. AnisAbdellatif, who did not respond to an interview request, wrote in an email that the film would go against USD’s desire for “inclusive excellence.”

Originally, a student group known as the Association for Advancement of Women’s Rights agreed to sponsor the film. But the group later withdrew its support. Carol Leibiger, the group’s faculty adviser, deferred comment to Emily Grode, the AAWR’s student leader. Grode did not respond to an email.

Two others involved in the issue also did not respond to interview requests: History professor Sara Lampert and Jesus Trevino, USD’s vice president for diversity.

Sternadori said she disagrees with assessments that the film is anti-Muslim. She notes that other Muslim groups support the film and that Muslims helped in its creation. And while she disagrees with censorship, she does agree that universities should not promote activities or groups that are racist or demean minorities.

“I would absolutely be sensitive to that,” she said. “I feel very strongly about not trampling on minorities of any kind.”

But even as Sternadori stands firm about showing the film at next month’s conference, there are questions about why it suddenly disappeared from a scheduled showing at the Muenster University Center on Sunday. Struckman-Johnson tried to attend, only to learn that it was canceled. She called it “stealth repression.”

“It silently disappeared, which is wrong,” she said.

Asked about Sunday’s cancelation, Lindsay Sparks, USD’s director of transitions and student programming said: “We weren’t best prepared to show it and facilitate conversation and things like that.” She then deferred comment to Trevino.


Stealth jihad. Creeping sharia. Islamization. Call it what you will.

Terror-named CAIR previously succeeded in shutting the film down in the occupied territory of Dearbornistan. Watch the trailer below:

 

South Dakota: Muslims looking to grow in Sioux Falls

via KELOLAND.com | SF Muslim Community Looks For New Home. h/t BNI

SIOUX FALLS, SD – Dr. Hesham Elgouhari’s career brought him to Sioux Falls.

“I came from Cleveland Clinic, where we have bigger communities, Muslim communities, community centers, big mosques, Islamic schools, and so forth,” the president of the board of the Muslims Community Center of South Dakota said.

His faith helps keep him in Sioux Falls.

“So to have those people coming to Sioux Falls and not to see something similar or at least trying to provide some of those services that they got in those big communities, it might not be the best environment for them to stay, socially, religiously-wise,” Elgouhari said.

Elgouhari estimates that around four or five thousand Muslim people live in Sioux Falls, with a few hundred more scattered across the state. In Sioux Falls, they worship at two different mosques.

The Muslims Community Center currently meets in a rented space. Its members are looking for their own larger, permanent home to serve the growing Muslim community.

“We are dreaming to have a permanent community center because the taste that we have been having over the last four, five years since we opened this community center temporarily, is just very delicious, very beautiful, very fruitful,” Elgouhari said.

Dr. Mumtaz Niazi is the general secretary of the community center. He believes the people of the local Muslim community are increasingly well-connected.

“You need a place where you can communicate there, your families can come, your kids can come, and they can stay as long as they want and they can pray, they can have fun, they can play around,” Niazi said.

Fatima Mohamed teaches Sunday school at the center. She hopes to help her students maintain their culture.

“I need them to keep that because, some people they come here, and they lost their culture,” she said. “And I want them to keep it.”

“We like this place, it’s safe, it’s nice, it’s good and [we] want [to] stay,” Elgouhari said.

And staying includes maintaining that link to their religion.

“We have to do everything we can to retain us and our families in this town,” Elgouhari said.

No one knows when the new center will open or where it will be. One thing the leadership of the Muslims Community Center does know is that the new facility will be inclusive, and work to fight against misconceptions of the faith.

“I think the perception of the Islam which is currently going on through the media, I will say particularly, is not true reflection,” Niazi said. “It’s the name, religion, is peace.”


He’s lying already. Islam does not mean peace. It means submission. Submission to the will of allah. The blatant dishonesty should make all South Dakaton’s wary about anything and everything this deceptive individual spews.

As we’ve noted previously, Islam’s deadly affects have already been felt in Sioux Falls: South Dakota: Muslim refugee gets life sentence for sex trafficking of teen girls – ran a sex trafficking “house of horror” – including sex trafficking by force and sex trafficking of a child.

South Dakota: Muslim population observes ‘Americanized Ramadan’

It’s that time of year when local newspapers nationwide shill for Islam. Actually that’s a year-round activity. In this puff piece, the author refers to an ‘Americanized Ramadan’. Coincidentally, Muslim girls and wives in the U.S., Canada and elsewhere have been “honor killed” by their families for being too “Westernized.” But don’t let reality get in the way of good propaganda. via Local Muslim population observes ‘Americanized Ramadan’. h/t Europe News

At the community center, men and women pray and eat separately In the social gathering between those events, the genders also tend to segregate themselves, with children acting as little ambassadors and serving as points of connection between the two, with their needs for parental permission, assistance or simply conveying messages between mom and dad. Ayaz looked at “all the kids creating a ruckus” approvingly. Ramadan brings the Muslim community together, he said, and “the sense of being a big family is important.”

Salem, vice president of the Muslims Community Center, estimated there 4,000 to 5,000 followers of Islam in the area. There are 57 Muslim countries in the world. About half are represented in Sioux Falls, he said.

Refugees fleeing civil wars in Africa and later Bosnia made up the initial waves of Muslims in South Dakota, Salem said. These were not wealthy people. The community’s financial situation improved when the Sioux Falls hospitals, financial institutions and engineering firms began attracting significant numbers of Muslim professionals from the Middle East, India and Pakistan.

It is fairly unusual in Sioux Falls. But from time to time, converts make a profession of faith to Islam. It happened Friday. A job selling travel packages brought Muhammad Meekael to South Dakota this past week, and he attended Ramadan ceremonies at the Muslims Community Center. He also heads a company in Tennessee that exports beef to Saudi Arabia. Through that, be became friends with a Saudi Muslim who led him into the faith.

“I have an open mind,” he said. “I learned things I did not expect,” when he began reading the Quran.

“The blessings of Allah are leading me where I need to be.”

Meekael calls to mind Michael, the name he grew up with in Ohio, he said. His knowledge of Arabic, the language of Islam, virtually is nonexistent, and what he knows about Islam in general is sketchy. However, he said he has enjoyed an enduring sense of peace since becoming a Muslim, and he promised: “I am serious about what I do. I will be a good student and submit.”

Muslims in Ramadan confront what truly is important, Ayaz adds. “With jobs, kids and company, you forget to live,” he said. Ramadan “requires you to see the smaller things in life are also important.”

Salem calls it “the month of patience.”

Muslims refer to Ramadan as the “month of jihad” not patience.  It’s certainly not a month of peace. In fact, research shows that Crime Increases During the Muslim Holy Month.

 

South Dakota: Muslim refugee gets life sentence for sex trafficking of teen girls

via KELOLAND.com | ‘House of Horror’ Sex Trafficker Sentenced to Life. h/t Refugee Resettlement Watch

mohamad-alaboudi

SIOUX FALLS, SD – The Sioux Falls man authorities say ran a sex trafficking “house of horror” will now call prison home for the rest of his life. On Monday, Federal Judge Karen Schreier sentenced 45-year-old Mohammed Alaboudi to four life terms behind bars. He will serve those concurrently. Alaboudi took in teen girls and young women, gave them drugs and forced them into prostitution out of his one-bedroom apartment near McKennan Park.

Schreier essentially said this is the worst case of human sex trafficking she has seen because it involved more, “force and coercion,” than others. Four of Alaboudi’s victims who were repeatedly raped and tortured told their former captor how his actions have impacted them.

“They were treated, as Judge Schreier said today, in many cases, worse than a person would treat their own dog,” U.S. Attorney for South Dakota Brendan Johnson said.

And we know how Muslims treat dogs.

Federal prosecutors said Alaboudi preyed on, “vulnerable,” often homeless, young girls and women. He gave them a home, drugs and alcohol. Prosecutors said he often got them hooked on meth, and made them huff hairspray.

“He would bring in man after man after man into his home to have sex with these young girls and women. If they refused, they would be raped or they would be beaten,” Johnson said.

Victims called Alaboudi a “monster,” who would, “sit and laugh while the girls were raped.” One called their situation “hell.” Another victim hopes, “God decides to forgive him some day.”

Toward the end of the hearing, Alaboudi yelled at the judge and said he was innocent. He also called FBI agents and federal prosecutors liars.

“Mr. Alaboudi’s house of horror is closed.  Our mission as law enforcement is to make sure another one does not open its doors in the future,” Johnson said.

Until the immigration pipeline from Muslim countries is closed, expect more rape jihad.
