How Muslim Brotherhood Operates in Tennessee (Part 1 of 8)

via Tennesse Council 4 Political Justice.

Introduction

There are Islamists living in Tennessee who are top tier leaders in ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), one of the unindicted co-conspirator organizations named by the Muslim Brotherhood in its plan for the U.S.. This plan was exposed during the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing prosecution.

There are Islamists living in Tennessee who are individually named in that same Muslim Brotherhood plan, and Islamists who have served in executive positions with Muslim Brotherhood front groups like CAIR and the MAS (Muslim American Society), both designated as terrorist organizations by the UAE.

CAIR’s executive director who visits Tennessee has publicly voiced his support for HAMAS. CAIR has inserted itself multiple times in Tennessee events, even trying to prevent Tennessee citizens from exercising First Amendment rights to free speech and free assembly. In 2013 CAIR’s Michigan director was brought to Nashville to train Muslim high school students in political activism. Currently CAIR has a de facto office in Nashville since its former CAIR-Houston director registered as a Tennessee lobbyist and is running the American Center for Outreach (ACO).

A former CAIR intern worked with the UT Knoxville MSA (Muslim Students Association) and was on the faculty of the private Islamic school in Knoxville. Another former CAIR chapter leader was the self-appointed Vanderbilt University Muslim chaplain who confirmed during a public event that he must abide by Islamic law that commands death for homosexuals.

Guest speakers known to be radical Islamists have been brought to Tennessee with messages like “Islam is better than democracy” and that under sharia law “the kafir [non-Muslims] won’t be equal with the Muslim.”

Deeds to some Tennessee mosques list Muslim Brotherhood front groups. Imams preaching inside the mosques are trained in Saudi Arabia where the strictest form of sharia law is practiced or are trained at Al-Azhar University in Egypt, which is credited with starting the Islamic Muslim Brotherhood movement, promoting Islam and sharia as a complete way of life.

Tennessee even has a mosque whose mortgage is held by an organization working on behalf of the Iranian government.

Tennessee is home to the leader of an Islamic organization which shares many attributes with the Holy Land Foundation that was shut down by the U.S. government for providing material support to HAMAS.

***************

Our elected and appointed political leaders should be required to receive complete and factual information about the Muslim Brotherhood and its front groups operating in Tennessee because these groups represent the politics of Islam. These groups and individuals should be exposed.

Our citizens should also know these facts. Watch for the next seven installments in this series.

Tennessee: Out With the Old, In With the New Lobbyists for Islam

via Newsletter #161 – Out With the Old In With the New Tennessee Lobbyist for Islamists | tn Council 4 political justice.

Important information that should be passed to your state legislators.

Former American Center for Outreach (ACO) director Remziya Suleyman was the lobbyist in our state legislature for Tennessee Islamists. She and her Civic Engagement Coordinator, Drost Kokoye believed they were “run[ning] Tennessee.”

They never did and certainly aren’t anymore!

What they did do though was bring Muslim Brotherhood CAIR to Tennessee and then have it become entrenched by turning the ACO over to Paul “Iesa” [Jesus] Galloway, a former Texas CAIR director.

Paul “Iesa” Galloway is now the registered lobbyist for Tennessee’s Islamists.

The lobbyist registration form names Soyab Malani as ACO’s “CFO.” He is also an original organizer and board member of the Tennessee American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) which recently removed all board member names and the name of its Executive Director from their website. Why? Reorganizing? Concealing the identities of who is involved?

Who is Nadeem Siddiqi?

ACO’s “lobbyist supervisor” is board chair, Nadeem Siddiqi from Knoxville. Is this the same Nadeem Siddiqi named in a 2012 lawsuit for defrauding the government by submitting false Medicare and Medicaid bills?

Siddiqi is a former Board member of the Knoxville Annoor Mosque (also known as the Muslim Community of Knoxville). He is currently a board member of the Annoor Academy, a private Islamic school that uses a textbook teaching students that Christians and Jews are immoral and inferior to Muslims.

A “Siddiqi Lecture Series” at UTKnoxville, funded by Siddiqi Holdings of Knoxville, brought Sherman Abdul Hakeem Jackson to speak this year. Jackson sits on a “scholars council” formed by the International Institute on Islamic Thought (IIIT), one of the 29 “organization of our friends” claimed by the Muslim Brotherhood in its 1991 Explanatory Memorandum plan for North America.

Jackson has been a board member of several other Muslim Brotherhood organizations including the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA), North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) and the Muslim Students Association (MSA).

Jackson promotes Islamic supremacy and dominance. He says his primary commitment is to Allah, not America, and that “Muslims and Western worlds are in conflict and competition, and that only one can end up dominant. Put simply, he wants to replace Western culture with Muslim culture.”

Is it coincidence that ties to Muslim Brotherhood organizations and individuals keep appearing in our state?

Siddiqi and Galloway are a perfect match

Siddiqi and Galloway are both active in dawa (proselytizing Islam). Both purposefully align themselves with Muslim Brotherhood ideology, organizations and individuals.

Galloway, the new lobbyist and propagandist for Tennessee Muslims, started his public Muslim Brotherhood career by setting up and directing the Houston-CAIR office. CAIR, named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism prosecution, raised money and sent it to Hamas. In 2009 a federal judge confirmed that there was “ample evidence” tying CAIR to Hamas.

Galloway and political propaganda – a perfect combination for an Islamist lobbyist

Galloway has already established himself with the Tennessee media as a go-to PR voice for the Muslim community. In the short time he has been the ACO Director, he has editorialized the difference between violent Islamists and stealth political Islamists like himself and commented on a proposed “no-go zone” bill in the state legislature.

Galloway is also busy promoting himself as a states’ rights conservative 10th Amendment Republican just like his Muslim Brotherhood-supporting mentor Mohamed Elibiary, who left his Department of Homeland Security position to “help reform the conservative movement” in advance of the 2016 election.

Will you allow your state legislator to be deceived by Galloway and his propaganda? What about Galloway’s goal to obscure subtle changes taking place in Tennessee as more mosques are being built and the size of Muslim communities grow? Galloway’s aggressive marketing of the “religion of peace” is designed to help “settle” Islam and the Islamic movement within the United States” so that as CAIR’s co-founder said in 1998:

“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran … should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

 

 

Nashville’s Mayor Celebrates “Little Kurdistan” Sharia Enclaves

This south Nashville sharia enclave was profiled right here in 2012: Gangs, violence, crime plague Little Kurdistan, USA (south Nashville). Now it’s being celebrated by the mayor.

Mayor Karl Dean and his Muslim appointee to the Human Relations Committee

Mayor Karl Dean and his Muslim appointee to the Human Relations Committee

via Nashville’s Mayor Celebrates Sharia Enclaves | tn Council 4 political justice.

Is Nashville “Music City, USA” or “Little Kurdistan” – you decide.

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said the needs of “new Americans” were a top priority, so he established the city’s Office of New Americans:

“The number of foreign-born residents in Nashville has more than doubled over the past decade. And today our city is the proud home of the nation’s largest Kurdish population, as well as growing enclaves of immigrants from Somalia, Sudan and all over the world.”

Mayor Dean refers to the two out of three groups that have brought political Islam and sharia law to Nashville; Kurds and Somalis. They have been brought to Nashville through the federal refugee resettlement program.

Immigrants – turned – advocates talk about “Nashville for all of us” but instead choose to live like the Mayor’s office said, in enclaves. They complain about being treated as “the other,” but through self-segregation, guard against assimilating into and adapting to the American culture.

When they self-segregate its called preserving their culture. When native-born Tennesseans self-segregate, it’s called racism.

Kurdish Islamist agitator Remziya Suleyman whines endlessly about being thought of as “the other.” However, she was quick to appropriate Nashville’s generous spirit for her community’s political purposes, calling it “Little Kurdistan.”

Drost Kokoye, an activist Nashville’s Kurdish activist community, is known for her Jew-hatred and pro-Hamas politics. She worked in Suleyman’s organization, TIRRC, the ACLU and helped establish and is a board member of the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC). She’s now at UTKnoxville where she agitates with the Muslim Students Association (MSA) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), and has led pro-Ferguson rallies.

Ironically, Drost’s mother is a Parent Ambassador to new immigrant families as part of Mayor Dean’s Office for New Americans, even while her daughter Drost doesn’t want to be called a “new American” or even an “American.”

Enclaves in Tennessee?

Early on, the federal policy for resettling refugees advised scattering them across the country as a way to disperse the impact on receiving communities. In 1981 the federal government reversed this practice and instead started placing refugees of similar ethnic groups in the same area. Today, migration patterns upon arrival in the U.S. either for jobs, welfare benefits or to join an established ethnic community, help fuel the growth of the enclaves described by Mayor Dean.

There are enclaves like the Muslims of American (MoA) compound in Stewart County, Tennessee.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security says Muslims of America (MoA) is linked to the Jamaat ul-Fuqra Pakistani militant group.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) describes MoA as “virulently anti-Semitic,” attributed also with anti-Christian and anti-American rhetoric and tied to “a terrorist organization that has carried out firebombings and murders in the United States.”

There is also evidence of enclaves in the U.S. governed by sharia law.

The Tie Between Minneapolis and Nashville – “Little Mogadishu

The vast majority of Somalis living in the U.S. have been brought by federal contractors paid by the U.S. refugee resettlement program; 9,000 in 2014 and over 2,800 so far in 2015.

The Cedar-Riverside neighborhood in Minneapolis is called “Little Mogadishu” because it has the largest concentration of Somali Muslims living in the U.S. In August 2014, mainstream media also referred to it as “fertile ground for Islamic terrorist groups recruiting new fighters.” The report cited at least 40 residents who went to fight with ISIS, a pattern similar to the Minneapolis Somalis who joined al-Shabaab in 2013.

The Somali community complained to the Secretary of Home Land Security that their young men had no jobs, nor training or economic opportunity or “an appropriate place to live.” This is why they became “disillusioned and influenced by terrorist organizations” and then leave to go fight with ISIS.

How does this explain the FBI’s newest “Most Wanted Terrorist” a Somali who became a naturalized U.S. citizen through the refugee resettlement program.  He drove a taxi cab in D.C. and Virginia while he was recruiting for terrorists.

So, the Obama administration agreed to spend millions of dollars for job training and after-school activities.

The Somali enclave Mayor Dean admires comes with a Somali gang problem. This also connects Minneapolis and Nashville in ways the Mayor likely never envisioned as the price his city would pay for its Somali enclave. Part of Somali gang activity includes human sex trafficking and prostitution. The largest Somali sex trafficking ring which operated out of Minneapolis, Nashville and few other cities, was prosecuted in the federal courthouse in Nashville.

Little Kurdistan” – Another Nashville Islamist Enclave

Since 2007, federal contractors have been paid to bring approximately 200,000 Iraqis to the U.S.. Catholic Charities brought the first Kurds to Nashville in 1976. They were joined by some Iranian Kurds and then Kurds fleeing Saddam Hussein’s regime.

Between refugee resettlement and “secondary migration” (resettling in one place and moving to another), Nashville has the largest Kurdish community in the U.S. The number is estimated at about 11,000. Their mosque is the Salahadeen Center.

Programs like Nashville Public Television’s series titled “Next Door Neighbors,” just like the “Welcome to Shelbyville” detailing the arrival of Somalis to the town, go to great lengths to characterize these refugees as “hardworking and grateful” to be in this country.

In 2007, the Kurdish Pride Gang (KPG) which grew out of the Nashville refugee Kurdish enclave, shined a different spotlight on the Kurdish community. Police described gang members as “increasingly vicious and brazen.” Gang experts warn that gangs made up of people that come from war-torn countries pose a “unique problem” because they are desensitized to violence and dismissive of authority.

As of 2012, Metro police used a new tactic to break the KPG gang. A judge ruled the gang a public nuisance and issued an injunction that prevents the gang from gathering together in public places.

What the propaganda pieces don’t disclose is that most of the pro-Islamist activism has been initiated and led by members of the Nashville Kurdish community actively abetted by Nashville’s Somali community.

For example, shortly after launching the American Center for Outreach (ACO), Remziya Suleyman aligned her organization with Muslim Brotherhood CAIR. Suleyman brought CAIR to Nashville to train young Muslims in advocating for political Islam. She mentors them in leading a sharia-adherent lifestyle despite admitting “she never knew the concept of sharia.” She has ceded leadership of ACO to former CAIR-Houston director, Paul “Iesa” Galloway.

Can Mayor Karl Dean explain again why we should be excited about these enclaves in Nashville?


There are numerous Muslim enclaves in the U.S. and they are growing larger every year with new ones being established every year.

Islamist Bullying in Tennessee

via Newsletter #159 – Islamist Bullying in Tennessee | tn Council 4 political justice.

Tennessee has a law against bullying in schools because we believe that bullying is bad. So every school district in Tennessee has policies committed to eradicating bullies.

But we tolerate Islamist bullying. These bullies use name-calling like “bigot” or “Islamophobe” whenever anyone raises questions about matters like Muslim Brotherhood networks, Muslim Brotherhood plan, or questions the “Muslim as oppressed victim” narrative.

We also tolerate the way in which mainstream media abets Islamist bullying.

On January 15th the Tennessean newspaper published Paul “Iesa” Galloway’s response to the Paris jihadi murders. Galloway is the new executive director of the American Center for Outreach (ACO) which he says represents the political voice of Muslims in Tennessee.iesa-galloway

Galloway’s resume includes running his own public relations firm. He claims an expertise in “rebranding,” aka, professional spin doctor. He founded CAIR-Houston and operated it for four years. He served on Mohamed Elibiary’s Freedom and Justice Foundation board alongside arch Islamist Abdulhakim Mohammed, former imam at the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN), who was a mentor to Memphis jihadi Carlos Bledsoe.

Galloway’s predecessor at ACO, Remziya Suleyman also used the “Muslim as victim” narrative and Islamophobia as her rallying cry. AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council) founder and former chair, Daoud Abudiab will try to revive the Islamophobia tactic with his spring 2015 Islamophobia Conference.

“Islamophobia” is name-calling designed to suppress any criticism of Islam and Muslims. It was invented specifically for this purpose by a Muslim Brotherhood front organization, the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT). The IIIT was part of a 5 year terrorism financing investigation for being the largest monetary donor to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group and because it has other questionable ties to terrorist groups.

Being a Muslim Brotherhood insider by virtue of his CAIR leadership, Galloway knows the Islamophobia tactic is losing its impact because subsequent to each jihadi attack, the public is less convinced that Muslims are the real victims. The Associated Press eliminated the term “Islamophobia” from its stylebook which is the media “bible” to guide accuracy in reporting. Remember this the next time you pick up a newspaper or read a report.

Tennessee Islamists Galloway, Suleyman, and AMAC representatives claim that the way to counter what they believe is hate speech against Islam and Muslims, is more speech. But when they don’t like what they hear or when their propaganda is exposed, they revert to bullying.

Whether its “American Muslims” or “Muslim Americans” doing the bullying, they still can’t put lipstick on the Islamophobia pig.


Read the entire article as we left out a substantial portion on how various groups try to define “Islamists.” 

We shouldn’t be making that distinction and should just refer those who act in the name of or to advance Islam and sharia as Muslims. Some Muslims use terror (jihadists) to do it, others wearing suits and ties use the law and intimidation as their form of jihad. They are all Muslims.

Vanderbilt Muslims Seek To Bully Black Professor Into Silence on Islam

via Vanderbilt Muslims To Black Prof: Shut Up | The Daily Caller.

A black Vanderbilt University professor’s op-ed critical of Islamic terrorism has touched off a wave of protest by Muslim students and other critics.

The op-ed author is Carol Swain, a longtime professor of law and political science at Vanderbilt and a self-proclaimed political conservative. Her op-ed, entitled “Charlie Hebdo attacks prove critics were right about Islam,” appeared in The Tennessean (Nashville’s main newspaper) on Jan. 15.

Swain, who opposes burqas and advocates stronger efforts at assimilation for American Muslims, argued that radical Islam “poses an absolute danger to us and our children unless it is monitored better than it has been under the Obama administration.”

In response, Muslim students, led by Vanderbilt undergraduate Farishtay Yamin, took great offense.

Yamin told The Vanderbilt Hustler, the campus newspaper, that she “could not believe her eyes” when she read Swain’s column. The student also quickly labeled Swain’s opinion as “hate speech.”

She then used Facebook to set up a “Campus-Wide Protest Against Hate Speech Published in the Tennessean” on Saturday afternoon.

Attendance at the fairly brief event was in the low hundreds, The College Fix reports. Students who showed up brought signs emblazoned with slogans such as “Better a brat than a bigot.”

Yamin, who is the publicity chair for Vanderbilt’s Muslim Student Association, told the audience in no uncertain terms that a black female professor’s speech must be restricted if she says “these kinds of things” in the future.

“What I’m really trying to show her is that she can’t continue to say these kinds of things on a campus that’s so liberal and diverse and tolerant,” Yamin declared.

Swain “used a platform of murdering people to gain publicity,” Yamin charged.

“There is no way the students here are going to allow further attacks on their own peers,” the Muslim undergrad also threatened, according to the Fix.

“And if the university respects us as human beings, it has to come out and condemn these statements and promise us that it’s not going to happen again in the future.”

She writes the attacks illustrate that “Islam is a dangerous set of beliefs totally incompatible with Western beliefs concerning freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of association.”

She says her writings aren’t meant to be offensive toward Muslims, but to protect the public from radicals who want to hurt us.

She concludes by saying, “I strongly believe if it had been anything involving a liberal professor that we wouldn’t be having this discussion because it seems like free speech and academic freedom may just mostly run in one direction.”

Twitter accounts of New Mexico, Maryland, Tennessee media outlets hacked by ISIS supporting Muslims

…who pledge to make infidels suffer – as if the media hasn’t made infidels suffer enough with incessant Islamic ass-kissing and propaganda. The second time Albuquerque and Tennessee (two states rapidly Islamizing) have been hacked for ISIS recently. And of course it was reported yesterday that the U.S. military’s Central Command Twitter Account Hacked.

gfy

via Pro-ISIS Group hijacks Twitter accounts of local media outlets – SC Magazine.

Local audiences were surprised to see militant, Pro-ISIS tweets and images on the Twitter feeds of the Albuquerque Journal and CBS and Fox affiliates in Delmarva, Maryland, and a station in Tennessee earlier this week, sending those news organizations scrambling to regain control of their social media accounts and leaving some scratching their heads as to why a group sympathetic to ISIS would target local media markets.

Hackers, who call themselves CyberCaliphate, posted familiar images of a man with his face shrouded in a scarf as well as messages such as “With Allah’s permission we began with New-Mexico and we are in Tennessee now. We hacked FBI databases. #CyberCaliphate,” and pledged “INFIDELS, NEW YEAR WILL MAKE YOU SUFFER.”

Indeed it appeared that the group had accessed government sites since a link on the Twitter feed for the Tennessee station led to a dump of what Stewart County, Tenn. Mayor Rick Joiner told AOL News were legitimate documents from government servers there. In addition, a link to a document dump on Pastebin on the Albuquerque Journal’s Twitter account revealed personal data and alleged sealed criminal records of people residing in New Mexico, the AOL report said.

The nature of the messages and the hack point away from ISIS’s “official” presence on social media, which, Ian Amit, vice president at ZeroFox, told SCMagazine.com in an interview are “typically closely tied to things they do on the ground.” ISIS activity on social media is usually centered around supporting their activities and events. “There’s not a lot of malicious activity but rather more propaganda,” said Amit. “They’re trying to spread the word and justify their actions.”

Instead, members of CyberCaliphate are more likely an ad hoc group of “keyboard warriors” who want to join the cause but “are less inclined to pack their bags and ship over to Eastern Europe or the MidEast” to join in combat, said Amit.


Let the cyber wars begin. Someone forward this to Anonymous – who claims first victim in ‘Operation Charlie Hebdo’ – and @OpCharlieHebdo. Or perhaps the original hacktivist @th3j35t3r.

 

Obama appoints Muslim to special assistant in Office of Director for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in DHS

To oversee importing tens of thousands of Muslims from jihad countries? via U of M graduates receive presidential appointments – Memphis Business Journal.

The University of Memphis’ Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) program can now boast D.C. appointments in the Obama Administration for three of its 2014 graduates.

Fatima Noor is now a special assistant in the Office of the Director for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Department of Homeland Security.

They will work in the Obama administration until January 2017.

In March of this year, a University of Memphis alum who works in the White House contacted the Student Affairs administration to say that she had been successful in getting University of Memphis students a spot to interview for Presidential Appointments.

According to Meta Laabs, director of Student Affairs at the U of M, most of these interviews are usually reserved for Ivy League schools.

He added that Okere and Noor had an interest in public service before participating in the University’s Leadership Exchange, “But that program seemed to have made it okay for them to pursue that path.”

With apparently no qualifications other than a few volunteer gigs and a hijab. via Presidential Appointment: Fatima Noor : The Muslim Observer.

She majored in psychology with minors in Spanish and international relations. She recently completed a month-long research fellowship in psychology hosted by Carnegie-Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh; her research will be ongoing for this program. Noor was a leader in many honor societies at the U of M. She has done volunteer work with World Relief Memphis and the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition.


Obama has stacked his administration with Muslims – many with nefarious, terror-linked backgrounds and sympathies.
