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.

 

Texas: Senate Passes ‘Anti Sharia Law’

Considering Texas already has one, possibly two, Islamic sharia courts, and is a leading destination for Muslim refugees and immigrants (legal and illegal), they need to do more than pass a bill that no one will enforce. via ‘Anti Sharia Law’ Measure Passed Texas Senate | News Radio 1200 WOAI.

The Texas Senate last night passed and sent to Gov. Greg Abbott a measure that would prevent any ‘international law’ from being used in Texas civil courts, a bill many detractors say is Islamaphobic, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

State Sen. Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels) doesn’t mention Islamic Koranic law, or ‘Sharia Law’ in her bill. She simply says it guarantees that no laws fro ‘foreign courts’ will be adopted by Texas civil court judges.

“It’s just to provide some belt and suspenders to make sure that, with judicial discretion, we don’t trump Texas law, American law, with a foreign law regarding family law,” Campbell said.

Muslim groups say the bill is a ‘solution looking for problem, and claim that the bill has its genesis in an anti Muslim demonstration on the steps of the Texas Capitol in January in which the proposal was cheered.

State Sen. Kirk Watson (D-Austin) grilled Campbell on examples she has seen of foreign law being used in Texas courts.

“What foreign law are you attempting to prevent being used, and can you give examples of where it has created a problem in the state?” Watson asked.

“No foreign law,” Campbell replied. “This just provides a context for judicial discretion.”

There have been instances of judges whose jurisdiction includes tightly knit religious communities, like the Amish in Ohio and Pennsylvania, the FLDS in Arizona and Utah, and the Hasidic Jews in New York City, agreeing, with the consent of all parties, to allow religious precepts to be used in court decisions on issues like divorce and child support.

In New York City, Jewish communities are occasionally allowed to establish their own Rabbinical courts to decide family law matters.

 

Texas Imam wants “change to the [free speech] law” (video)

“I think there needs to be a change to the law where people do not disrespect especially high people,” Imam Mobasher Ahmed said.

San Antonio Human Resources Mgmt Association eliminates CAIR from ‘Islam in the Workplace’ curriculum

May many others follow suit.

San Antonio Human Resources Management Association eliminates CAIR from seminar entitled Understanding Islam in the Workplace curriculum.

Florida Family Association sent out an email alert on May 4, 2015 entitled San Antonio Human Resources Management Association sponsors CAIR seminar for educational certification credit entitled Understanding Islam in the Workplace. The email alert asked Floridafamily.org subscribers to send emails that urged San Antonio Human Resources Management Association officers and board members to abandon CAIR’s curriculum, cancel the May 12th workshop and terminate future educational relations with this organization. Thousands of people sent emails.

The San Antonio Human Resources Management Association (SAHRMA) website now has a new person addressing the workshop scheduled for May 12th instead of CAIR. The website NOW provides the following description of the new speaker: Rodney Klein graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and was hired by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission as an Investigator in 1992. Mr. Klein investigated individual complaints of employment discrimination, along with large class and systemic cases. He worked as a liaison between the EEOC and various fair employment practice agencies. And, he was the San Antonio Office’s Charge Receipt Supervisor, responsible for receiving and processing all incoming discrimination complaints. Currently, Mr. Klein is the Dallas District’s Outreach and Training Manager. He speaks to audiences about employment related matters, the civil rights statutes, and EEOC procedures, and he is a featured speaker at his office’s yearly training seminars for employers.

Florida Family Association did not copy the web page before SAHRMA changed the speaker for the class. However, a Google search the morning of May 6, 2015 still contained part of the CAIR description in cache as shown in the photograph at the bottom of this email alert below. The Cache may change to the new description shown above for this Google search https://www.google.com/search?q=%22sahrma.org&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8#q=%22sahrma.org%22+cair but at the time it was photographed the morning of May 6, 2015 the Google search cache stated: “The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was created as an “organization that challenges stereotypes of Islam and Muslims”, a “Washington-based …”

Thankfully, it appears that SAHRMA has eliminated CAIR from teaching this course. Emails of concern clearly made a difference in SAHRMA’s quick removal of CAIR from teaching the course. Florida Family Association responded to the change of speaker by sending emails to inquire with SAHRMA’s top officers and directors if CAIR would have any other involvement in the course. None of the San Antonio Human Resources Management Association (SAHRMA) officials responded to Florida Family Association’s inquiry. Florida Family Association hopes to receive a report from insider(s) about the course presentation.

Texas: Muslim told sister, “cannot wait until my dad puts a bullet between your eyes”

Islamic honor killing, it’s a family affair. via Texas woman allegedly stalked sister before ‘honor killing’ – NY Daily News.

A Texas woman stalked her sister for months and delivered a chilling warning to her brother-in-law shortly before his murder, authorities said.

“I cannot wait until my dad puts a bullet between your eyes,” Nadia Irsan allegedly told her sister’s husband.

The 30-year-old appeared in court Tuesday to face charges she was part of a twisted family campaign of hate that resulted in a pair of “honor killings” in 2012, KHOU reported.

Irsan’s hardline Muslim father was furious when her sister, Nesreen Irsan, married a Christian man without his approval, authorities said.

The irate dad, 57-year-old Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, first gunned down his daughter’s friend, Iranian activist Galareh Bagherzadeh, who he believed led her astray from her fundamentalist upbringing, according to prosecutors.

The father threatened his daughter after Bagherzadeh’s January 2012 death.

“I killed that b—h, and you’re next,” Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan is accused of saying, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Then he came for her husband, Coty Beavers, shooting him to death in November 2012 in the couple’s home, authorities said.

The dad was charged with murder in the dual homicides. His wife and 21-year-old son also face charges in the case.

Nadia Irsan hasn’t been charged with murder in either of the deaths, but that could change, authorities said.

She’s accused of tailing her sister, even slipping a GPS device onto the estranged sibling’s car in the lead-up to Beaver’s killing, according to prosecutors.

Investigators later discovered the GPS buried in the Irsan’s yard.

Winning Muhammad cartoonist: ‘I’m not hiding’

never-submit

As we noted earlier in the week, Winning Muhammad cartoonist: ‘I’m not hiding’.

Bosch Fawstin’s world has changed dramatically less than a week after he spoke with WND on a barricaded sidewalk as he was about to enter the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas, where his artwork was declared the $12,250 winner of a free-speech “draw Muhammad” contest.

It was his work and others that apparently drew the attention of the infamously brutal, self-proclaimed Islamic State, or ISIS, which has seized large portions of Syria and Iraq in the centuries-old cause of bringing the entire world under the submission of Islam. Responding to a call to “avenge the prophet,” Phoenix residents Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi of Phoenix traveled to Garland, where they were shot and killed by police after opening fire with assault rifles in an apparent attempt to get into the building.

Fawstin, who spoke to WND Friday evening by telephone, said he has received specific death threats since Sunday and is taking measures to protect himself that he is not at liberty to discuss.

But he has no intention of going into hiding or dropping his focus on exposing, as a graphic novelist and artist, what he believes is the world’s most dangerous and “evil” political and ideological movement.

Dutch politician Geert Wilders, the keynote speaker at the Garland event, said Thursday he wants to set up a special Muhammad cartoon show at the Dutch Parliament in The Hague.

“If I’m invited I would absolutely go,” Fawstin told WND.

“This is a battle,” he declared. “What we’re doing here are things that are normal for our society. But now they are abnormal because of the enemy.

“We have to say: ‘No more. We can have exhibitions, because we are a free people in the civilized world,’” he said.

Fawstin’s prize-winning work depicts a sword-wielding Muhammad declaring, “You can’t draw me.” In reply, the artist, whose hands are shown with a pencil, says, “That’s why I draw you.”

The event was hosted by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, co-founded by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer. Geller said this week she now must travel with security, with ISIS naming her in a threat posted on one of its affiliated websites.

The Bronx-born son of immigrants from Albania, Fawstin said he left Islam as a teen then “revisited” it after 9/11.

“I studied Islam as if my life depended on it,” he said. “I read the Quran twice. I read every book I could get my hands on, on jihad and Islam, terrorism.”

He said he has always been a passionate pursuer of “the truth,” and after 9/11, he “made a vow to find out the truth about Islam” and “write and draw about it, and send it out there in as wide a way as I possibly can.” Continue reading
