Proposed Bill Could Cut Off Foreign Money for Islamic Dawah in U.S.

Source: No Saudi Money for American Mosques :: Middle East Forum

Saudi Arabia may be the country in the world most different from the United States, especially where religion is concerned. An important new bill introduced by Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.) aims to take a step toward fixing a monumental imbalance.

Pray any way you wish in America, so long as you do not break the law. Non-Muslims who pray with others in Saudi Arabia engage in an illicit activity that could get them busted, as though they had participated in a drug party.

The United States, obviously, has no sacred cities open only to members of a specific faith. KSA has two of them, Mecca and Medina; trespassers who are caught will meet with what the Saudi authorities delicately call “severe punishment.”

With only rare (and probably illegal) exceptions, the U.S. government does not fund religious institutions abroad (and those exceptions tend to be for Islamic institutions).

One could argue that Islamic countries essentially are religious institutions [see al-din wa’l-dawla, meaning “the religion and the polity”—a phrase that holds Islam to be both a religion and a body of rules governing society and state].

In contrast, the Saudi monarchy has spent globally an estimated US $100 billion to spread its Wahhabi version of Islam. Products of Saudi-funded Wahhabi schools and mosques have often been incited to political violence against non-Muslims.

The Saudis have been arrogantly indiscreet about spending to promote Wahhabism. For example, a 2005 Freedom House report reviewed some of the extremist literature provided to the public by Saudi-funded institutions and concluded that it poses “a grave threat to non-Muslims and to the Muslim community itself.” The monarchy has also given multiple and generous grants to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the most aggressive and effective Islamist organization in the United States.

This discrepancy, a version of which exists in every Western country, demands a solution.

Brat’s proposed bill, H.R. 5824, the “Religious Freedom International Reciprocity Enhancement Act,” makes it unlawful for “foreign nationals of a country that limits the free exercise of religion in that country to make any expenditure in the United States to promote a religion in the United States, and for other purposes.”

Hello, Saudi Arabia!

To “promote a religion” includes funding “religious services, religious education, evangelical outreach, and publication and dissemination of religious literature.” Should funding proceed anyway in defiance of this bill, the U.S. government can seize the monies.

The bill needs more work: it omits mention of religious buildings, offers no criteria for seizure of property, and does not indicate who would do the seizing. But it offers an important beginning. I commend it and urge its urgent consideration and adoption.

Americans cannot abide aggressive unilateral actions by Riyadh (or, for that matter, Tehran and Doha) exploiting their oil bonanza to smother the secularist principles basic to Western life. We must protect ourselves.

Read it all. As Pipes notes, the bill needs more work, a lot of work.

It’s not just the Saudi’s who play this game though, recall Turkey funded a $100M mosque in Maryland and there is a network of hundreds of notorious Turkish schools across the U.S.

The Pakistani’s have been caught funding activities too. The Shia’s have their networks as well.

If Hillary Clinton is placed in the White House this has no chance of surviving in any fashion and Saudi money, Saudi Prince Says Funded 20% Of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign, and Saudi Wahabbi Muslims will pour in.


Virginia: Muslim on FBI Watchlist Yells ‘Allah Akbar’, Tries to Behead Man & Woman in Roanoke

Source: FBI Investigating Possible ISIS-Inspired Knife Attack in Virginia – ABC News

The FBI has launched a federal terrorism investigation into a weekend stabbing in Roanoke, Va., looking at whether the attacker may have been trying to behead his victim in an alleged ISIS-inspired assault, sources tell ABC News.

Federal authorities have been aware of the alleged attacker, 20-year-old Wasil Farooqui, of the Roanoke area, for some time, sources familiar with the case told ABC News. In the past year, he traveled to Turkey and may have tried to sneak into Syria, where ISIS is recruiting and inspiring sympathizers from across the world, sources said.

Farooqui was arrested Saturday by Roanoke County Police on charges of assault with malicious wounding, and he’s being held without bond at the Western Virginia Regional Jail, according to the sources and a jail database.

During the Saturday stabbing, Farooqui allegedly injured a man and woman at an apartment complex in Roanoke, yelling “Allah Akbar” as he attacked them with a knife, sources told ABC News.

Authorities believe he may have been trying to behead the male victim, who was likely picked at random, ABC News was told.

Farooqui and his two alleged victims were hospitalized after the attack. Their conditions were not clear.

“The FBI is working with the Police Department following the incident that occurred on Saturday evening,” the head of the FBI’s Richmond field office, Special Agent In Charge Adam Lee, said in a statement. “While I cannot discuss details of the investigation at this time, I do want to reassure the community that we are working to determine the nature of the incident.”

ISIS has released several propaganda videos depicting the beheadings of Western journalists and others.

More details:  Roanoke County police: suspect yelled “Allah Akbar” during attack

Roanoke County Police are investigating a reported stabbing at The Pines Apartments in the 4300 block of Banbury Lane. Authorities said dispatch received a call just before 8:00 p.m. that a male and female had been attacked as they entered the apartment building. Both were attacked with a knife and severely injured.

According to police, the male was able to fight off the attacker who fled the scene. Roanoke County Fire & Rescue transported both victims to a nearby hospital. While officers were at the hospital with the victims, a male identified as 20-year old Wasil Farooqui of Roanoke County, came into the emergency room suffering from injuries of his own said authorities. Police said Farooqui met the description of the suspect in the stabbing.

Whether or not it was ISIS-inspired, it was undoubtedly Islam-inspired. Considering Farooqi was on the FBI’s watch list for some time, it will be hard for the media to deploy the “nothing to do with Islam” meme. Instead, the media is taking a new tactic: NOT REPORTING IT AT ALL.

A similar media blackout is taking place regarding Muslim refugee rapes of American girls. No mention of the latest jihadi’s immigration status.



Virginia: Fairfax Dentist Says Hijabi Quit Rather Than Wear Sanitary Covering

User submitted content covering what the media won’t.


By Dori Joyner, M.A..

Early in August 2016, Fair Oaks Dental Care in Fairfax, Virginia hired a young woman, Ms. Najaf Khan, to work in their dental office. Ms. Khan had worn no religious clothing to her employment interview. Her first two days on the job, she continued to wear secular clothing. She was given positive feedback those first two days. The third day she arrived to the dental office wearing a hijab, an Islamic religious ‘headscarf’.

In an NBC Washington taped interview, Ms. Khan describes her version of the events that followed.

“I was devastated. The owner told me to take my hijab off and he gave me an ultimatum. I could continue to wear my headscarf and no longer work there. Or I could continue to work there without my headscarf. And when I said I would not compromise my religion for that, he held the door for me and I walked out.”

However, Dr. Chuck Joo, the dentist and office owner, states on the business website and Facebook page:

“Our office does not have any objections to hijabs. We only asked Ms. Khan to wear a separate, clean hijab (for office wear only) or wear a sanitary head cover over her hijab while seeing patients in the office, just like we require all employees to wear full scrubs and not street clothes in the office when treating patients. This dress code has applied to all dental assistants since 2003, when it was first implemented.

Ms. Khan did not find the dress code or the alternative we offered suitable and she then walked out on her own accord.

Ms. Khan was never terminated from our employ. In fact, we contacted her later in the evening on the same day she voluntarily walked out of the office and offered to continue her paid training program.

We had been inspired by Ms. Khan’s enthusiasm to become a dentist, and even though she had no experience working in dentistry, we provided her with a three month paid training opportunity in exchange for eventual full-time employment, something rare in the dental business. Ms. Khan elected not to respond.”

To give her credit, Ms. Khan plays the victim role convincingly. She’s young and pretty and looks sad as she tells how she was so unfairly treated. Perhaps she even believes it. najif-khan-supremacist

The truth, though, is that she was not fired. She was not terminated. She was not forced to choose between her religious attire and her job. She was not ‘shown the door’. And, when asked on camera if she would go back to work in the dental office, she replied, “Probably not. Not with somebody who is so close minded.”

Who is close minded here?

Certainly, not the dentist, who was nothing but generous toward Ms. Khan. Yet, she could see only discrimination. She was given every consideration to accommodate her religious practice within the bounds of maintaining a sanitary environment for patients, yet she chose to interpret the experience as religious discrimination and this is the story that has been splashed across multiple media sites. A sceptic might wonder if she intended to ‘cry discrimination’ from the get go, and that’s why she applied for the job, hijab-free, knowing she would don it later and if challenged would create a public outcry very much like the one she ended up creating.

But someone with faith in the goodness of all, might believe she is merely young and naïve enough to want to make a stand for her religion, even if that stand is based on half-truths and lies, and even if that stand hurt the very people of good will who had her best interests at heart.

Regardless of her motivation, though, she took her story to the media and it has been used publicly to defame the dental office. What’s especially sad is that these were the people who only wanted to help her advance her career and make her dreams of becoming a dentist come true.

Ms. Khan also contacted CAIR, (Council on American-Islamic Relations) with her complaint, and her misrepresentations of the truth are also repeated on their website, although with words such as ‘alleged’ and ‘reportedly’, perhaps to protect CAIR from libel when the truth of this event emerges, as it is now. On their website, they claim to have “served more than 25,000 victims of discrimination since ‘their’ founding.”

One wonders how many of those cases of ‘discrimination’ are similar to this one, made up of spurious claims.

More chilling, they state, “Our nation-wide offices receive a total of approximately 3,000 inquiries a year and work to resolve them through mediation, negotiation, public pressure, or if necessary, through legal action.

Public pressure… hmm… In this case, perhaps groundless public shaming and intimidation would be a more apt term?

CAIR is calling for Ms. Khan’s reinstatement (although she quit of her own accord). And, of course, they are also calling for financial compensation for her.

Racism certainly does exist. So does religious discrimination. And these bigoted views should be challenged whenever and wherever they occur. But in this case, the dentist and his office team do not deserve the appellations of racist, ‘islamaphobe’ or hate monger.

Even so, their names and business reputation have been smeared in these terms or with insinuation and innuendo, which amounts to the same thing. Unwarranted public defamation like this is a lose/lose proposition for us all.

Good, honest Muslims lose when their religion is used dishonestly by some to promote a nefarious political agenda.

Well-meaning individuals like this dentist lose when their livelihoods and community standing are unfairly threatened. And citizens around the globe lose when the few disturb the peace and good will of the many.

This is a sad and sorry state of affairs, these times we are living in.

We encourage readers to submit content regarding local events ignored or mis-characterized by the media.

In the linked article above, NBC News failed to alert readers that CAIR is:

  • listed as a terrorist organization in the UAE
  • an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror financing conviction in U.S. history
  • banned by the FBI due to its HAMAS links
  • deemed part of HAMAS by a U.S. federal judge
  • being sued by Muslim Americans, and
  • numerous of its executives having been jailed or deported for terrorist activities.

All in the Creeping Sharia archives.

Why did non-coalition Pakistani officials attend the burial of Khizr Khan’s son?

Pakistan was not a member of the U.S. coalition in Iraq, which begs the question of why the Pakistani embassy’s ISI chief attended Captain Humayun Khan’s funeral at Arlington?


Source: August 1-2, 2016 — What the media isn’t reporting about Khizr Khan – Wayne Madsen Report

The official notification of Khan’s death stated:

“Captain Humayun S. M. Khan, 27, of Bristow, Virginia, died June 8, 2004, in Baquabah, Iraq, after a vehicle packed with an improvised explosive device drove into the gate of his compound while he was inspecting soldiers on guard duty.  Khan was assigned to Headquarters, Headquarters Company, 201st Forward Support Battalion, 1st Infantry Division, Vilseck, Germany.”

Khan was actually an Army intelligence officer, fluent in Arabic, who worked with Iraqi civilians in a program called the United States-Iraq Sponsorship Program, which was actually an operation designed to recruit Iraqis to work as police and in other “capacities” for the Coalition Provisional Authority, the U.S. occupation government of Iraq. Khan’s home base of Vilseck is a center for U.S. intelligence operations involving units of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command. When Khan was killed, oversight of Iraq “transition” programs, such as the U.S.-Iraq Sponsorship Program, had just come under the control of General David Petraeus, the first commander of the Multi-National Security Transition Command – Iraq.

Members of the Pakistani embassy, including deputy chief of mission (DCM) Mohammad Sadiq, attended Captain Khan’s burial at Arlington National Cemetery. The DCM of large embassies are almost always the embassy intelligence chief of station. In the case of Sadig, this would be the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). In 2008, Sadiq, who paid his respects to Captain Khan at Arlington, was defending ISI as the Pakistan Foreign Ministry’s chief spokesman. India accused the ISI of bombing its embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. The bombing killed four people, including two Indian diplomats.

It was not only India that blamed the ISI for the bombing in Kabul. CIA officials said that intercepts of communications showed ISI involvement. Pakistan was so incensed by the statements from U.S. intelligence that it summoned CIA official Stephen Kappes to Islamabad for a chewing out session.

Pakistan was not a member of the U.S. coalition in Iraq, which begs the question of why the Pakistani embassy’s ISI chief attended Captain Humayun Khan’s funeral at Arlington? Was Khan working, through his Saudi- and Pakistani-connected father with the ISI? If so, was the contact “sanctioned” by the CIA? If not, was Humayun Khan freelancing and feeding information from Iraq to the ISI, which then passed it to their close allies in the Saudi General Intelligence Department?

Khizr Khan claims he is a “legal consultant” in Charlottesville, although he is not a member of the Virginia Bar. Given the nature of Charlotteville’s status as a sanctuary city, Khan’s legal background and his work with the Muslim community in Virginia, it is likely that Khan offers help to Muslims who have overstayed their student visas in the university and sanctuary city to obtain permanent residence. It should be recalled that seven of the 9/11 hijackers obtained Virginia driver’s licenses, three of which were used as official identification to check in for flights on September 11, 2001.


Khizr Khan practices law in New York and is a member of the New York Bar. Khan’s Manhattan law office is next door to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, which also happens to house the residence of the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power. Power’s husband is Cass Sunstein, President Obama’s former information czar who excels in the art of disinformation, propaganda, and cognitive dissonance. But more interesting is the fact that Khan and his wife are residents of Charlottesville, Virginia, a home to a number of foreign Muslims, many of whom are students at the University of Virginia who wish to change their student visa status to permanent residency, or “green card” status. Charlottesville is a so-called “sanctuary city” that welcomes those who either enter the United States illegally or overstay their limited residency visas.

The war-hero son was born in UAE, not Pakistan. It seems that Khizr Khan might be a lot more connected and a lot less American than he portrayed himself at the DNC.

Now he’s run back to Pakistan where he continued interfering in a U.S. election from abroad.


Virginia: Metro Transit Cop Arrested for Attempts to Support ISIS Terrorists


Source: Fairfax Man Arrested for Attempting to Support ISIL | USAO-EDVA | Department of Justice

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Nicholas Young, 36, of Fairfax, who is employed as a police officer with the Metro Transit Police Department, was arrested today on charges of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. Young will have his initial appearance here at 2 p.m. today in front of U.S. Magistrate Judge Theresa C. Buchanan.

According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, Young has been employed as a police officer with the Metro Transit Police Department since 2003.  Law enforcement first interviewed Young in September 2010 in connection with his acquaintance, Zachary Chesser, who one month later pleaded guilty to providing material support to terrorists.  Over the next several years Young had numerous interactions with undercover law enforcement officers and a cooperating witness regarding Young’s knowledge or interest of terrorist related activity, many of which were recorded. Law enforcement also interviewed Young’s family and co-workers. Several meetings Young had with an undercover law enforcement officer in 2011 included another of Young’s acquaintances, Amine El Khalifi, who later pleaded guilty to charges relating to attempting a suicide bombing at the U.S. Capitol Building in 2012.

According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, Young told FBI agents that he traveled to Libya twice in 2011 and he had been with rebels attempting to overthrow the Muammar Qaddafi regime.  Baggage searches revealed that Young traveled with body armor, a kevlar helmet, and several other military-style items.

According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, in 2014, Young met on about 20 separate occasions with an FBI confidential human source (CHS) posing as a U.S. military reservist of Middle Eastern descent who was becoming more religious and eager to leave the U.S. military as a result of having had to fight against Muslims during his deployment to Iraq.  During these conversations Young advised CHS on how to evade law enforcement detection by utilizing specific travel methods and advised CHS to watch out for informants and not discuss his plans with others.

According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, in Fall 2014, CHS led Young to believe that he had successfully left the United States and had joined ISIL.  In reality, CHS had no further contact with Young.  All further communications between Young and CHS’s email account were actually communications between Young and FBI undercover personnel posing as CHS.  In June 2015, Young emailed CHS asking for advice from CHS’s commanders on how to send his money overseas. Young said, “[u]nfortunately I have enough flags on my name that I can’t even buy a plane ticket without little alerts ending up in someone’s hands, so I imagine banking transactions are automatically monitored and will flag depending on what is going on.”

According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, in December 2015, the FBI interviewed Young, ostensibly in connection with an investigation into the whereabouts of CHS.  Young said that CHS had left the United States to go on a vacation tour in Turkey approximately one year ago.  Young said that he knew of no one in the United States or overseas who helped CHS cross the Turkish border into Syria.

According to the affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint, on July 18, 2016, Young communicated with whom he believed to be CHS regarding purchasing of gift cards for mobile messaging accounts ISIL uses in recruiting. On July 28, 2016, Young sent 22 sixteen digit gift card codes to the FBI undercover with a message that stated: “Respond to verify receipt . . . may not answer depending on when as this device will be destroyed after all are sent to prevent the data being possibly seen on this end in the case of something unfortunate.” The codes were ultimately redeemed by the FBI for $245.

Young faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison if convicted. The maximum statutory sentence is prescribed by Congress and is provided here for informational purposes, as the sentencing of the defendant will be determined by the court based on the advisory Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

The Metro Transit Police Department initiated this investigation and continues to work collaboratively with the FBI Washington Field Office Joint Terrorism Task Force on the case.

A copy of this press release may be found on the website of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.  Related court documents and information may be found on the website of the District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia or on PACER by searching for Case No. 1:16-MJ-355.

As we’ve asked before, what did Young do that Hillary Clinton, or Obama, hasn’t done? Except hold down a real job. And have the FBI actually work on his arrest for six years.

Hillary Clinton has materially supported ISIS , in fact she armed Jihadists in Libya . . . and Syria. She helped overthrow Qaddafi and laughed about his brutal death.


FBI Warning ‘Many Christian Volunteers and Ministers’ in US on Muslim Terrorist “Kill Lists”

Source: FBI Makes Warning Visits to US Christians on Jihadist “Kill Lists” | h/t Jihad Watch

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (ANS — July 29, 2016) – The Federal Bureau of Investigation is interviewing Americans whose names have recently appeared on “Kill Lists” on a Jihadist website

Among them are “many” Christians involved in international student welcome ministries or who are helping Muslim refugees settle in the United States.

The FBI visits are not related to the killing of an 86-year-old French priest by two young terrorist supporters of Islamic State, also known as ISIS, on Wednesday, as he led prayer in a Normandy church. The FBI visits were already underway before the priest was murdered.

No Americans on the Islamic State “Kill Lists” have been successfully targeted and killed as Rev. Jacques Hamel was last Wednesday. However, the FBI is advising those whose names are on these “Kill Lists” to take precautions and report anything suspicious.

The Jihadist websites are urging American Muslims to undertake “personal Jihad” missions against Christians, journalists, military personnel, police, social workers and others who are helping Muslims study or settle in the United States.

The “Kill Lists” are part of the cyber war which the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (IS) is waging to bring more Islamic Jihad attacks to American soil.

An FBI agent said that so far, he is not sure what prompts certain Americans to get listed on the IS “Kill Lists” but “many” are Christian volunteers and ministers. Site visits to churches, homes and offices of those listed as targets on the Jihadist websites are a routine part of FBI investigations.

According to the Pentagon, the worldwide Jihad “Kill Lists” were updated on July 24 and includes Americans living in 19 states. Here in Virginia, Americans targeted for death live in Burke, Charlottesville, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Springfield, Suffolk, and Virginia Beach.

If it wasn’t prompted by the rash of deadly jihad attacks across Europe, maybe it was criticism over this a few weeks ago: FBI Not Telling Americans on ISIS ‘Kill List’.

It’s difficult to trust anything coming out of the FBI and James Comey but it sounds like they are setting us up for an event.

Virginia: Muslim Arrested for ISIS Support, Wanted to Kill US Soldiers

Every single one of them. His father worried over the years as his son grew a long beard…hmm.


via Department of Justice

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Haris Qamar, 25, of Burke, was arrested this morning on charges of attempting to provide material support and resources to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization. Qamar is scheduled to have his initial appearance today in front of Magistrate Judge John F. Anderson at 2 p.m. at the federal courthouse in Alexandria.

According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, on May 26, Qamar and FBI confidential witness (CW) discussed ISIL’s need of photos of possible targets in and around Washington, D.C., for use in a video that ISIL was purportedly making to encourage lone wolf attacks in the Washington, D.C., area.  Qamar allegedly offered CW ideas of where to take these photographs, including the Pentagon and numerous landmarks in Arlington and Washington, D.C., which could be targeted for terrorist attacks.  On June 3, a conversation was audio and video recorded when CW picked up Qamar in a vehicle and they drove to area landmarks on the list Qamar had developed.  Qamar allegedly said “bye bye DC, stupid ass kufar, kill’em all”.  Qamar and CW met again on June 10 and drove to a location in Arlington to take additional photos for the ISIL video.

The FBI first learned of Qamar as he operated over 60 variations of the Twitter handle “newerajihadi”, which Qamar used to express his support of ISIL and share videos and photos of extreme violence, including beheadings and mass shootings. For example, after terrorists murdered employees of the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris in January 2015, Qamar tweeted his prayer for another similar attack with even more casualties.

According to the allegations, during numerous conversations with CW, Qamar expressed his interest and excitement in the extreme violence ISIL is known for.  Qamar said he loved the bodies, blood and beheadings, and he recalled watching a video of a Kurdish individual being slaughtered, and liked the cracking sound made when the individual’s spinal cord was torn. On several occasions Qamar allegedly said he could slaughter someone and described how he would do it.  Qamar also stated that he admired lone wolf attackers because they love Islam so much that they are willing to die as martyrs for Islam and in the same conversation, Qamar and CW allegedly discussed suicide bombings. CW said that he did not believe in suicide bombings, but Qamar allegedly responded “I believe in it 100 percent.”

On Sept. 11, 2015, terrorists connected with ISIL posted a “kill list” to the internet containing the names and addresses of U.S. military members.  A few days later, Qamar allegedly told CW that the residences of several service members who appeared on the “kill list” were near Qamar’s own home, and that Qamar had observed undercover police cars near those residences.  According to the affidavit, on Sept. 16, 2015, Qamar tweeted his prayer that Allah “give strength to the mujahideen to slaughter every single US military officer.” 

Additionally, the affidavit alleges that on Sept. 25, 2015, Qamar told CW that he tried to join the ISIL in 2014, but that his parents prevented him from going by controlling his passport.  Qamar allegedly said that his parents threatened to notify law enforcement authorities and said that he fought with his father and called his father a traitor to Islam.  According to the allegations, on Nov. 18, 2015, CW asked Qamar if his father gave him back his passport would he go and join ISIL, and in response, Qamar said if that happened, “I’m done, I leave.”

Qamar faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison if convicted. The maximum statutory sentence is prescribed by Congress and is provided here for informational purposes, as the sentencing of the defendant will be determined by the court based on the advisory Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

You’re probably thinking, “finally, a Muslim parent who did the right thing.” And maybe he did. But who understands Islam better, father or son?  via Father Says Son Doesn’t Understand Islam

The father of a Virginia man charged in a government sting with attempting to support the Islamic State says his son doesn’t understand Islam.

Qamar’s father, Qamar Abbas, said in an interview that he worried over the years as his son grew a long beard and became inattentive to his studies. He said his son spent long hours on the computer that may have led him to a twisted view of Islam.

At an initial appearance Friday, a magistrate ordered Qamar held pending a detention hearing next week.
