Congresswoman Introduces Bill to Stop Arming Islamic Terrorists

 

 

More via: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Introduces Legislation to Stop Arming Terrorists

Background: The Stop Arming Terrorists bill prohibits U.S. government funds from being used to support al-Qaeda, ISIS or other terrorist groups. In the same way that Congress passed the Boland Amendment to prohibit the funding and support to CIA backed-Nicaraguan Contras during the 1980’s, this bill would stop CIA or other Federal government activities in places like Syria by ensuring U.S. funds are not used to support al-Qaeda, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, ISIS, or other terrorist groups working with them. It would also prohibit the Federal government from funding assistance to countries that are directly or indirectly supporting those terrorist groups. The bill achieves this by:

  1. Making it illegal for any U.S. Federal government funds to be used to provide assistance covered in this bill to terrorists. The assistance covered includes weapons, munitions, weapons platforms, intelligence, logistics, training, and cash.

  2. Making it illegal for the U.S. government to provide assistance covered in the bill to any nation that has given or continues to give such assistance to terrorists.

  3. Requiring the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to determine the individual and groups that should be considered terrorists, for the purposes of this bill, by determining: (a) the individuals and groups that are associated with, affiliated with, adherents to or cooperating with al-Qaeda, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, or ISIS; (b) the countries that are providing assistance covered in this bill to those individuals or groups.

  4. Requiring the DNI to review and update the list of countries and groups to which assistance is prohibited every six months, in consultation with the House Foreign Affairs and Armed Services Committees, as well as the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

  5. Requiring the DNI to brief Congress on the determinations.

PS: Shameful that America needs a bill to prevent our own government from funding and arming terrorists.

Documentary on “ex-Muslims” sparks contentious debate at Portland State

An anonymous note which read, “Atheist Islamophobia is not okay” was left in the display case for the event.

Let’s hope it doesn’t turn into an Ohio State jihad attack. h/t Jihad Watch who writes:

The film is about Muslims being victimized, and the knee-jerk reaction of Leftist and Islamic supremacist students at Portland State University is that this makes Muslims victims. The plight of the ex-Muslims depicted in the film is lost in the brouhaha.

Source: Documentary on “ex-Muslims” sparks contentious debate at Portland State – The Ex-Muslim

On Nov. 23, over 60 people attended the screening of Islam’s Non-Believers at Portland State University. The documentary film featured the personal testimonies of ex-Muslims who have faced death threats, severe abuse and ostracization from their communities for leaving Islam. The film’s director, Deeyah Khan, is a Muslim and human rights activist.

The event was hosted by secular humanist student group, Freethinkers of PSU.

Controversy surrounded the event in the weeks leading up to the screening. Some students found the event insensitive given the political climate, while others thought the event promoted discrimination. In the glass display case for Freethinkers, a note was left which read, “Atheist Islamophobia is not okay.” Across campus, many flyers for the event were vandalized or torn down.

In response to the backlash, two ex-Muslim women featured in the documentary issued statements which were read or shown at the screening. “I hope you realize that discriminating against ex-Muslims is not an excuse to validate your savior complex,” Rayhana said in a pre-recorded video message.

Sadia sent Freethinkers of PSU a written statement. It read in part, “Islam’s Non-Believers was such an important documentary because for the first time ex-Muslims have been given a face and a voice. It has made us human.”

Despite the controversy leading up to the event, the screening proceeded without any disruptions. Dr. Peter Boghossian, professor of philosophy at PSU, facilitated a group discussion after the film ended.

One Muslim woman in attendance objected to the narrative presented in the film. “The punishment for apostasy in the Qur’an is not death,” she said. “The Qur’an is written in Arabic and most people from Bangladesh, India and other parts don’t speak Arabic.” Two native Arabic speakers later challenged this assertion when they recited several Qur’anic verses which can be interpreted as prescribing death for those who reject God.

Video: Vetting the Migrants (for sharia)

As Syrian refugees and other migrants are being brought to the US, we hear that we don’t need to worry about any nasty “terrorists” (jihadists, to use the right word), because they will be vetted.

Our vetting needs to focus on the Sharia, not just violence. The US has taken a stand against racial hatred, why not take a stand against Kafir hatred?

We need to say no to Sharia wife-beating, no to Sharia Kafir hatred, no to the Sharia killing of apostates, no to Sharia suppression of free speech, no to Sharia abuse of women.

The oath of citizenship should read: I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, sovereignty, religious legal system of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen;

Keeping Up with CAIR’s Islamic Radicalism (Video)

By Andrew E. Harrod

Summary: The terrorist-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) claims to be America’s largest civil rights organization for Muslims. But its agenda has more to do with the Islamization of America than with protecting Muslims from civil rights abuses.

Capital Research Center last examined the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its aggressive, jihad terrorism-whitewashing Islamists in the August 2005 Organization Trends. CAIR statements and actions in recent years show that this organization, which sprang out of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, has in no way changed its radical spots—a fact that ought to call into question its continuing respectability in media and politics.

Brooklyn: Uber-driving Muslim Immigrant Plotted Times Square Truck Rampage

Source: ISIS-Inspired Brooklyn Resident Discussed Times Square Attack « CBS New York

A 37-year-old Brooklyn resident is facing terror charges after he allegedly expressed support for a truck attack in Times Square similar to one ISIS claimed responsibility for in Nice, France.

As CBS2’s Dick Brennan reported, the federal criminal complaint was issued Monday against Mohamed Rafik Naji, 37 – a citizen of Yemen, but a permanent legal resident of the U.S.

Naji was awoken and arrested at 3 a.m. Monday at his home in Brooklyn, authorities said. Cellphone video showed federal agents leading Naji from his apartment on Clarendon Road in Flatbush.

A witness who recorded his arrest reported that dozens of officers from at least five agents came to arrest Naji.

“He was arrested at 3 this morning and charged with material support of a terrorist organization, which you know, that’s what we do in New York now,” said Naji defense attorney Susan Kellman.

Naji appeared in U.S. District Court in Downtown Brooklyn for an initial hearing Tuesday afternoon.

READ THE FULL COMPLAINT

The Justice Department said Naji has been supporting ISIS or ISIL since 2014. Naji traveled to Turkey and Yemen between March 2015 and September 2015, according to the criminal complaint.

Kellman said her client had innocent and legitimate reasons to be in Yemen.

“According to the complaint, he traveled overseas to Yemen, which you know, is immediately suspect in the view of our government,” Kellman said. “Of course, the fact that he has family over there and three children didn’t seem to affect the government one way or the other, but he certainly had legitimate reasons to be over there.”

But when Naji returned, prosecutors said he expressed support for carrying out attacks in Times Square, similar to the one on Bastille Day in July in Nice, France that killed 86 people.

The complaint states Naji emailed his girlfriend, who allegedly wired him money on several occasions, about his efforts to join the terror group in Yemen. In one email Naji allegedly wrote (cq), “It’s very hard to get in I’m on my 5 try its difficult mad po po military and ppl here very scared inshallah I make it m keep trying if not m have to go from somewhere else.”

The complaint further spelled out a recorded conversation Naji had with a confidential informant in which he allegedly said: If there is a truck, I mean a garbage truck and one drives it there to Times-Square and crushes them shshshshshsh… Times-Square Day….They want an operation in Times-Square.”

Naji allegedly told the informant further: “They want an operation in Times-Square, reconnaissance group already put out a scene, the Islamic State already put up scenes of Times-Square.”

But in a later email, Naji said, “we can’t get in,” the complaint read.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the arrest is “a sharp reminder of the evolving threat of global terrorism.”

“New York must remain vigilant in the face of hate and intolerance, and continue to advance the core values of democracy that this state and nation were founded upon,” Cuomo said, adding there is no specific threat at this time.

Just last week, an online ISIS magazine described the upcoming Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as “an excellent target” for a similar track attack. The NYPD is already planning a large security detail.

“It is a very large detail,” said NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill. “I think this year, you’re going to see a lot more block cars and sand trucks on the cross-streets.”

Authorities said Naji works as an Uber driver in Brooklyn.

Naji is also accused of trying to join ISIS in Yemen. On Monday night, neighbors in his apartment building say while they didn’t know Naji, they are still fearful.

“I think it’s crazy, honestly. It’s just crazy,” one woman said from behind her closed door. “I don’t what to say.”

Naji is charged with providing material support to a terror group. His attorney said they are trying to put together a bail package.
