Dallas, Texas (January 10, 2017) – Following a nearly three-hour hearing held yesterday, newly appointed District Court Judge Maricela Moore dismissed a defamation lawsuit filed by Mohamed Mohamed on his own behalf and on behalf of his 15-year old son, Ahmed Mohamed.

Ahmed is better known as “Clock Boy” for bringing a hoax clock bomb to his Irving, Texas middle school in September 2015 and causing a bomb scare that led to his arrest and suspension from school.

The motion to dismiss was filed by lawyers from the American Freedom Law Center (“AFLC”) and local counsel Pete Rowe on behalf of the Center for Security Policy (“CSP”) and Jim Hanson, two of the defendants in the defamation case, which also named as defendants the local Fox affiliate, Glenn Beck, and Beck’s production company.

Mohamed had sued Hanson and CSP for statements Hanson had made on Beck’s program about the connection between the Clock Boy hoax bomb affair, the attendant media frenzy created in large part by his father Mohamed, civilization jihad, and the Counsel on American-Islamic Relations (“CAIR”), the Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group in the United States that promotes civilization jihad.

During the hearing, AFLC co-founder and senior counsel David Yerushalmi explained to Judge Moore that the purpose of the lawfare-driven lawsuit was to intimidate into silence those who might comment publicly on the connection between jihad, terrorism, sharia, and Islam.  As such, Yerushalmi argued,

“This case is a classic Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation or ‘SLAPP’ case and should be dismissed.”

During the lengthy hearing, Judge Moore pressed Mohamed’s lawyer, Fort Worth attorney Susan Hutchison, to provide any facts that would suggest that Hanson and the other defendants had said anything false or defamatory about Mohamed or his son during the television broadcasts.  After spending a painfully embarrassing 15 minutes flipping through reams of paper, Mohamed’s lawyer was unable to provide any such evidence.

At the conclusion of the hearing, Judge Moore took the matter under advisement but informed the parties that she would rule by the end of the day.  Today, the Court published Judge Moore’s ruling dismissing the lawsuit against Hanson and CSP with prejudice.

Upon leaving the courtroom, Yerushalmi explained:

“This lawsuit filed by Clock Boy’s father is yet another example of Islamist lawfare, which is a component of the Muslim Brotherhood’s civilization jihad.”

Yerushalmi further explained that the purpose of such lawsuits, formally labelled Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (“SLAPP”), is to intimidate into silence those who might comment publicly on the connection between jihad, terrorism, sharia, and Islam.

Yerushalmi added:

“The Islamists employ the progressive mainstream media to label any public criticism of a sharia-centric, jihad-driven Islam as ‘Islamophobic,’ and they add fear and financial ruin to the equation by utilizing the legal system to file SLAPP actions,”

Now that the lawsuit has been dismissed, AFLC will petition the court for its legal fees and will seek sanctions against both the plaintiff and his attorney.

Robert Muise, AFLC’s other co-founder and senior counsel, made clear:

“AFLC was formed in large measure to take on Islamists like CAIR who use and abuse the legal system with their cynical form of lawfare to undermine our constitutional liberties—notably free speech.  We have confronted these lawsuits across the country in federal and state courts and have defeated CAIR and its minions at every turn.  When appropriate, we have won sanctions.  This lawsuit will be no different.”


Report: ISIS leader and media guru is an American from Texas


John Georgelas, aka Yahya Abu Hassan

A 32-year-old American has emerged as one of Islamic State’s (Daesh) top leaders, a recent report by Graeme Wood in The Atlantic magazine revealed. What propelled John Georgelas aka Abu Yahya to the top of the jihadist group?

‘A staggering mastery of Islamic law’

Was it poverty that turned him to terror? No, he was born into an upper-middle class family in Texas. Perhaps, it was American foreign policy? No, there is no indication that he was displeased with the 1845 incorporation of the Republic of Texas into the US

It was ideology that drove him into the arms of the IS. Financed by rich Arabs in Texas, Yahya studied Islam. Initially attracted to Sufism, he soon turned to Dhahirism, an “ultraliteralist legal school”. He has a “staggering mastery of Islamic law” and can even compose poems in classical Arabic off the top of his head. This helped him win support within the terror group

‘Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You’
Yahya now produces the glossy IS magazines Dabiq and Rumiyah. The pellucid article titled “Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You” reads like a distillation of every conversation I have ever had with a jihadist, writes Wood

Some liberal journalist would like you to believe that we do what we do because we’re simply monsters… The fact is, even if you were to stop bombing us and usurping our lands, we would continue to hate you because our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam IS’s Dabiq magazine

The Atlantic piece is here, The American Leader Traitor in the Islamic State. We fixed the title.

Among the relevant facts in this lengthy, coyly pro-Islam piece by Graeme Wood is the fact that Yahya Abu Hassan’s jihadi wife was allowed back into the U.S. (as was Hassan although he has since left again) and lives in Texas with their four children.

One can only speculate what she is teaching her children…and if she is receiving taxpayer-funded assistance to do so.

Texas: Sheriff’s office allows inmate in ‘honor killing’ case to wear hijab

Lost on the sheriff’s office and everyone else in this case is that this Muslim is in jail because she took part in killing a woman who chose to reject the hijab! Put simply, it’s a Symbol…of Hate.

Nadia Irsan was wearing an orange jail uniform, an olive green long-sleeved shirt and a black head scarf with a small patch of maroon when she sat down across from her lawyer Thursday in a glass-partitioned conference room in the Harris County Jail.

The 31-year-old observant Muslim, who will likely remain behind bars at least another year before she goes to trial on a charge of stalking, smiled at her attorney.

“It was a lot of colors,” said lawyer Jackie Carpenter. “But that wasn’t an issue. She finally looked comfortable.”

A day after Carpenter and attorney Eric Davis went public with their concerns that Irsan’s religious rights were being violated because she was not allowed to wear the covering that are tenets of her faith, officials with the sheriff’s office saw to it that she had a hijab and a long-sleeved shirt.

“It was like she said, ‘oh my God, I can breathe again!'” Carpenter said of the immediate change in her client. “She was far more focused and energetic. She’s happy.”

You know who can’t breate again? The brother-in-law Irsan stalked and told, “I cannot wait until my dad puts a bullet between your eyes.” The father did so. The best friend of Irsan’s sister can’t breathe again either – because Irsan helped kill her too because she rejected wearing the hijab and all that is Islam.

Irsan has been convicted in a federal fraud scheme, but she is awaiting trial along with her father, Ali Mahwood-Awad, and his wife and adult son. They are all accused of gunning down her sister’s husband and her sister’s best friend, Iranian activist Gelareh Bagherzadeh.

Prosecutors say the family conspired to commit the shootings after the sister disavowed the family to marry a Houston man.

Irsan is charged with stalking her sister, Nesreen Irsan, after Nersreen left their father’s home to marry a Christian man, Coty Beavers.

Their father, Ali Irsan, is Muslim. Prosecutors call him controlling and domineering, and they say he murdered Coty, and Nesreen’s best friend, Gelareh Bagherzadeh, because he thought she helped convert his daughter to Christianity.

In court Tuesday, prosecutors said Nadia also threatened Coty before his murder.

“At one point made the comment, I cannot wait until my dad puts a bullet between your eyes, to Coty Beavers,” said Thomas.

Nadia is accused of putting a GPS tracker on her sister’s car and driving around her home.

“Almost consistently on a daily basis was encircling the apartment complex,” said Thomas.

Prosecutors say the GPS showed Nadia taking that route, up until the day Coty Beavers was murdered in the apartment he shared with Nesreen in November 2012. The GPS was later found buried at the Irsans’ house.

Honor killing is a family tradition for these Jordanian Muslim immigrants:

Ali Irsan shot and killed another son-in-law in 1999, but he said it was in self-defense and wasn’t charged in that case.

He’s now being investigated for 15-year-old shooting.

Houston Muslim pleads guilty in Christmas Day mosque arson blamed on Islamophobes

Source: Houston man pleads guilty in mosque fire on Christmas Day – Houston Chronicle

A Houston man was sentenced Friday to four years in prison after pleading guilty to starting a fire at a mosque on Christmas Day.

Gary Nathaniel Moore, 38 of Houston, was arrested last year in connection with a fire at 2 p.m. on Dec. 25 at a storefront mosque in the 1200 block of Wilcrest.

Moore told investigators at the scene that he had attended the mosque for five years, coming five times per day to pray seven days per week, according to court records.

Moore pleaded guilty to arson and using a fire as a deadly weapon, an enhancement which means he will have to serve at least half of the prison time before being eligible for parole.

Moore’s attorney, who would not give his name, declined to answer questions after the brief hearing in state District Judge Jan Krocker’s court.

Another in a long and growing list of CAIR’s fake hate crimes…perpetrated by Muslims and blamed on Americans. Recall, the devout Muslim who set this Houston mosque fire attended the mosque 5 times a day!

Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch writes: Muslim pleads guilty to mosque arson that Hamas-linked CAIR called “hate incident”

Hamas-linked CAIR, designated a terror organization by the United Arab Emirates, and other Muslims have on many occasions not hesitated to stoop even to fabricating “hate crimes,” including attacks on mosques.

Most notably, in February, a New Jersey Muslim was found guilty of murder that he tried to portray as an “Islamophobic” attack, and in 2014 in California, a Muslim was found guilty of killing his wife, after first blaming her murder on “Islamophobia.”

Houston: Muslim father in honor killings case sent to prison for disability fraud

The patriarch of a Jordanian-American family from Montgomery County, whose members face murder charges in so-called “honor killings,” has been sentenced to federal prison in an unrelated case involving the theft of disability benefits.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes ordered Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, 57, to serve almost four years for his role in defrauding the Social Security Administration for more than a decade and to pay $290,651 in restitution.

Irsan’s wife, Shmou Ali Alrawabdeh, 37, and his daughter, 30-year-old Nadia Irsan, were convicted of providing false statements to authorities about the fraud scheme. Each of them previously received 24-month federal sentences.

According to court documents and testimony, Ali Irsan applied for Supplemental Security Income or SSI benefits in 2002 by claiming that he was disabled and had been unable to work since 1990. His wife also claimed a disability and began to receive benefits in 2005.

In seeking that financial support, which is reserved for people with limited assets excluding homes and cars, family members didn’t report a bank account in Jordan with a balance that fluctuated between $4,000 and $16,000 or a 2010 lawsuit settlement check for $75,000. Hidden cash was found during a 2014 raid on their Conroe home.

Alrawabdeh and Nadia Irsan falsified documents to aid the fraud scheme. Nadia Irsan, who was unemployed, had a checking account with deposits of more than $250,000. She also lied in telling officials that a sister with cerebral palsy lived with her and paid rent. In actuality, that sibling resided with their father, Ali Irsan, and Alrawabdeh.

The trio and another relative now must answer more serious allegations in Harris County.

Ali Irsan, who is a naturalized U.S. citizen, has been charged with capital murder in the 2012 shooting deaths of 30-year-old activist Gelareh Bagherzadeh outside her parents’ Galleria-area home and of his son-in-law, Coty Beavers, 28.

Capital murder charges

Bagherzadeh was a friend of Ali Irsan’s daughter, Nesreen, who was married to Beavers. Both women were studying molecular genetics at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Ali Irsan, a strict disciplinarian and observant Muslim father, allegedly was outraged when Nesreen married a Christian without his permission. He blamed Bagherzadeh, who was dating Beavers’ twin, Cory, for encouraging his daughter’s relationship.

Alrawabdeh and Ali Irsan’s son, 21-year-old Nasim Irsan, also are charged with capital murder. They are accused in assisting with the plan to gun down Bagherzadeh.

Nadia Irsan faces charges accusing her of assisting in the scheme to kill Coty Beavers by stalking her sister, Nesreen, while carrying a gun.

Ali Irsan also fatally shot another son-in-law in 1999. Authorities determined that the killing was self-defense.

“I killed that (bitch), and you’re next. No one insults my honor as a Muslim and gets away with it.”

According to Harris County prosecutors, that’s what Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, 57, told his daughter after the death of Gelareh Bagherzadeh in January 2012.

Houston: Iraqi Muslim refugee who plotted to bomb American malls pleads guilty

Source: Houston man who pledged allegiance to ISIS, plotted to bomb malls pleads guilty to terrorism charge – Houston Chronicle

A Houston man who pledged his allegiance to ISIS and plotted to detonate homemade bombs in local shopping malls pleaded guilty Monday to a terrorism-related charge.

Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, a 24-year-old father, stockpiled circuitry components, wireless remotes and other bomb-making implements in his west Houston apartment, according to court documents.

“I want to blow myself up. I want to travel with the Mujahidin,” he once said, according to prosecutors. “I want to travel to be with those who are against America. I am against America.”

A prayer list for committing jihad and becoming a martyr was found among his belongings, as was an ISIL flag, according to a news release issued by U.S. Attorney Ken Magidson.

Al Hardan  pleaded guilty on one count of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, known as ISIL or ISIS. He had been facing two other charges for allegedly lying during the application process for U.S. citizenship.

His attorney, David Adler, could not be reached for comment.

Al Hardan originally entered the country as an Iraqi refugee in 2009. He gained legal permanent residence in 2011 and settled in the Houston area.

Feds started investigating him in April 2014, looking at his communications with other suspected terrorists and monitoring his menacing social media posts.

In November 2014, according to the plea agreement, Al Hardan took an oath of loyalty to ISIL.

Al Hardan said he will stay in custody till his January sentencing hearing. He is facing up to 20 years in federal prison. Prosecutors agreed as part of the plea deal not to see up to $250,000 in fines.

As noted previously, Iraqi Muslim refugee wanted to bomb malls, said “I am against America”

…Al Hardan was coordinating efforts with another Iraqi refugee living in California, Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab. The two men communicated through Facebook messenger from April 2013 to October 2014 and talked about getting weapons training and eventually sneaking into Syria to fight alongside the terrorist group, Wittliff said.

“Once I get the passport I will leave America, I will leave. I will make a widow of you,” Al Hardan said to his wife, according to the excerpt read in court. “I will go to Syria. I am not wacko. I am not wacko. I am speaking the truth. I want to blow myself up. I want to blow myself up … I am against America.”

And don’t forget, it certainly appears that this ISIS-supporting Muslim refugee brought another Muslim refugee to the U.S. to be his child bride.



Texas: ‘No to wall, Islam or die’ spray-painted on San Antonio church

Police are investigating the defacement of a San Antonio church after vandals spray-painted “No to wall” and “Islam or die” next to the entrance.

An unidentified symbol was painted under the words at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in the 600 block of Avalon Street, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

Eric Miletti, the pastor at Gethsemane, told the Express-News that he first noticed the graffiti Monday morning.

He said he wasn’t sure whether the vandalism had anything to do with Donald Trump’s signature presidential campaign promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Miletti said police were notified of the vandalism and a report was filed. He said he would ask the city to remove the paint once police give the OK.

A former CIA analyst tweeted it wasn’t an “unidentified symbol”, rather it was an attempt to write the Islamic war cry “allah akbar” although a Muslim noted it was spelled incorrectly.
