The artwork of Oleg Atbashian, a former Soviet dissident and now an American citizen, is familiar to many conservatives through the satirical website The People’s Cube.

He is now facing large fines and up to five years in jail for putting up anti-terrorism posters at George Mason University.

In this exclusive interview, Oleg explains what happened:

Daniel Greenfield writes:

This was supposed to be a two-day poster campaign, to counteract the George Mason University hosting an official national conference for Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), which is an anti-Semitic organization with well-documented ties to Hamas, a terrorist group whose stated goal is to exterminate the Jews.

The GMU poster campaign was conceived by the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

Selective enforcement is now the main tool of the modern tyrant. Laws are interpreted to prevent any kind of opposition to Marxist and Islamic domination of the culture and legal system.

Posters and other materials supporting far left wing causes and Islamic ones (that at times even promote genocide of Israelis, and Jews overall) can be found on campuses across North America.

Some universities even hold “Israeli Apartheid Week”, something which, in Canada, would be a hate crime if it was targeted, for example, at Saudi Arabia.

Virginia: Muslim who joined ISIS, captured by Kurds, is indicted

Mohamad Khweis, an American who bolted from ISIS, has been indicted on charges of helping a terrorist organization.

A Virginia man described as an ISIS defector has been indicted on charges of helping a terrorist organization and will be arraigned in federal court Friday, nearly eight months after he was captured by Kurds in Iraq.

Mohamad Jamal Khweis has been held without bail since he was brought back to the United States to face charges of conspiracy and providing material support to ISIS.

“He will be pleading not guilty,” said his attorney John Zwerling. “And we will go from there.”

Khweis, 27, told his family he was going to Europe for vacation last winter. Then in March, the American-born son of Palestinian immigrants surfaced in Kurdish territory with a story of fleeing ISIS.

In an interview with Kurdish TV after his capture, he claimed he made “a bad decision” to follow a young woman to Mosul and ended up in ISIS training facilities.

“I wasn’t thinking straight, and on the way there I regretted,” he said in the heavily edited interview.

“I don’t see them as good Muslims,” Khweis said of ISIS. “I wanted to go back to America.”

But in court papers, U.S. authorities said Khweis told Kurdish authorities and the FBI while he was still overseas that he started researching ISIS months before he went to Europe and tried to contact a extremist cleric once he was there.

“During the interview, the defendant stated he ‘gave himself’ to ISIL and that they controlled him. The defendant stated he was aware that ISIL wants to attack and destroy the United States,” an affidavit from an FBI agent says.

“The defendant stated that ISIL wants America to be taken over.”

The circumstances of his statement are likely to be the subject of debate as the case goes forward. A Justice Department official has told NBC News that if they were made under duress or after rough treatment by the Kurds, the defense could move to have them thrown out of court


Do we just let every Muslim who makes this claim back in to the U.S. with no fear of punishment? Are we that suicidal? Anyone remember Triple Cross?

Virginia: Muslim Gets 8 Years for Trying to Join Islamic State Terrorists

An update on one of two recent Virginia jihadis whose Muslim co-jihadist – an ex-National Guard member – pled guilty last week.

Last Friday, a federal district court in the Eastern District of Virginia sentenced Joseph Hassan Farrokh, a 29-year-old man from Woodbridge, Virginia, to 102 months in prison for attempting to provide material support to ISIL.

Farrokh had previously pled guilty to an information after waiving his right to prosecution by indictment. According to the information, Farrokh attempted board a plane at Richmond International Airport bound for Jordan—the first leg of his planned trip to Syria. His friend, Mahmoud Amin Mohamed Elhassan drove him to the airport and was later also indicted by the FBI for his support of Farrokh. While the complaint against Elhassan indicates that he was aware of Farrokh’s plan to join ISIL, the statement of facts accompanying Farrokh’s plea agreement indicates Elhassan not only dropped Farrokh off at the airport, but also planned to join him in Syria at a later date.

Farrokh and Elhassan join the recent slew of young men from the northern Virginia and Washington DC area indicted on charges of providing material support to ISIL. In early July, 26-year-old Bailor Jalloh was arrested in Sterling, Virginia—about 45 minutes from Woodbridge. Just a few months prior to that arrest, Alexandria, Virginia native Mohamed Jamal Khweis, was picked up by Kurdish forces after successfully travelling overseas to join ISIL.

Like many other subjects of FBI counterterrorism investigations, both Elhassan and Farrokh were operationally cautious when communicating with other like-minded radicals online. They purchased prepaid phones and downloaded encrypted mobile messaging apps in order to communicate with ISIL members overseas and, like Bailor Jalloh, they were in communication with bonafide ISIL members as well as FBI sources. But these individuals also went further than most subjects, taking additional measures to avoid law enforcement detection. Farrokh even trimmed his beard to look more American and booked a flight out of Richmond International Airport believing that the airport had less TSA security than the larger DC-area airports.

Farrokh also joined the ranks of many subjects arrested at the point at which they attempt to travel—Nader Elhuzayel was arrested at the airport trying to board a plane, and Akram Musleh was apprehended while attempting to get on a Greyhound bus.

Farrokh’s sentence was well below the government’s request for 136 months, although his defense team had recommended the court impose a sentence of 63 months, arguing he was unlikely to reoffend. Farrokh’s sentence is also shorter than those of his peers, including Nicholas Teausant, who was recently sentenced to 144 months in prison on the similar charges.


Again, not a single picture of this fine Muslim can be found anywhere online. Odd for a native Pennsylvanian of 29 years.

 

Virginia: Muslim Immigrant & ex-National Guard Member Pleads Guilty in Jihad Plot

The third post this week out of Virginia, not to mention an attempted Islamic beheading in August.

LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA — A former member of the Army National Guard, Mohamed Bailor Jalloh, 27, of Sterling, Va. pleaded guilty on Oct. 27 to charges of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization, according to a U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announcement.

According to the DOJ, in March 2016, a now-deceased member of ISIL brokered an introduction between Jalloh and an individual in the U.S. who was actually an FBI confidential human source (CHS). The ISIL member was actively plotting an attack in the U.S. and believed the attack would be carried out with the assistance of Jalloh and the CHS.

Jalloh met with the CHS on two occasions and told the CHS he was a former member of the Virginia Army National Guard, but that he decided not to re-enlist after listening to online lectures by Anwar al-Awlaki, a deceased leader of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

Jalloh had recently taken a six-month trip to Africa where he had met with ISIL members in Nigeria and first began communicating online with the ISIL member who later brokered his introduction to the CHS. During their meeting, Jalloh also told the CHS he thought about conducting an attack all the time, and that he was close to doing so at one point. Jalloh claimed to know how to shoot guns and praised the gunman who killed five U.S. military members in a terrorist attack in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in July 2015. Jalloh also stated he had been thinking about conducting an attack similar to the attack at Ft. Hood, Texas, in November 2009, which killed 13 people and wounded 32 others. Continue reading

Virginia: Muslim immigrant pleads guilty – helped Muslim friend try to join Islamic State

On Jan. 15, Mahmoud Elhassan headed out in his taxi from Northern Virginia to pick up a friend in Richmond who was preparing to travel overseas. They pulled over at a rest stop, where the friend, Joseph Farrokh, shaved off his beard. Then, with hours left before Farrokh’s flight, they went to a mall to pass the time.

Finally, Elhassan called another cab to take Farrokh to the Richmond airport. Elhassan began driving back north.

The shave and the second taxi were intended to help the pair avoid detection as Farrokh set out on his way to Syria to join the Islamic State. It was no use; the FBI had been watching the whole time, and an undercover informant was in on the plan. Farrokh was arrested as he walked toward his gate, Elhassan in the food court of Potomac Mills mall.

Elhassan, 26, pleaded guilty Monday morning to attempting to help a terrorist group and giving false statements to the FBI. He admitted that he introduced Farrokh to the informant at Farrokh’s wedding last fall and spoke numerous times about ways to get to Syria. He also lied to investigators, claiming that his friend had flown out of Dulles International Airport to attend a funeral in California.

He may yet go to trial on a charge of conspiracy to provide material support. He says that he himself never tried to go abroad.

“There’s an issue of whether this is more than an attempt” to help the Islamic State, said Thomas Durkin, Elhassan’s attorney.

A trial would be “meaningless,” Durkin said, because it probably would have little effect on Elhassan’s sentence. He said he hopes prosecutors will agree to drop the conspiracy charge.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Dennis Fitzpatrick said in court that Elhassan and Farrokh, both of Woodbridge, engaged in conversations that were “violent in nature,” discussing “chopping off heads” and “fighting against the U.S. military.”

Durkin said there are personal details that put Elhassan’s actions in context.

“Preceding all this, he was under tremendous emotional and family problems,” Durkin said. “His mother had died at a young age, which was traumatic for him and his family.”

Elhassan’s father died in 2008, which is when most of his family came from Sudan to the United States. His mother became sick in 2014 and died of cancer in September 2015.

Durkin called Elhassan “a very, very thoughtful and intelligent kid,” who, as a refu­gee in Cairo, studied at Al-Azhar University, the oldest in Egypt. In the United States, before his arrest, he was a student at Northern Virginia Community College.

Elhassan had initially pleaded not guilty, with his attorney Ashraf Nubani arguing that the case was manufactured by undercover informants. Nubani identified the key informant as Jesse Morton, a former Islamist extremist who was let out of prison more than seven years early.

Farrokh, 29, pleaded guilty earlier this year and was sentenced to 8½ years in prison. Raised by a Shiite Muslim father and a Christian mother, he turned to Islam in his 20s after battling an opioid addiction. Court documents show that he latched onto an extreme religiosity and became fixated on the idea of dying as a martyr on the battlefield in Syria. After his arrest, he expressed bafflement and disgust at his actions.

The two are among seven young men from Northern Virginia accused of ties to the Islamic State this year. Along with Farrokh and Elhassan, Haris Qamar has pleaded guilty to terrorism-related charges. Four other cases are pending.

Virginia: 2 Somali Women Convicted for Funding al-Shabaab Terrorists

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Two women were convicted today of terrorism crimes related to their material support of al-Shabaab, a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Muna Osman Jama, 36, of Reston, and Hinda Osman Dhirane, 46, of Kent, Washington, were found guilty of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, and providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization after a bench trial in front of U.S. District Judge Anthony J. Trenga.

In addition to money they transferred in direct support of al-Shabaab, these subjects recruited, solicited, and advised an online group located in multiple countries as to how and where to transfer funds to this terrorist organization,” said Paul M. Abbate, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Washington Field Office. “In coordination of the group, these subjects would then track and facilitate donations to ensure the money was received by their co-conspirators located in Nairobi and Somaliland. Today’s guilty verdicts send a message that facilitation of financial support to a designated terrorist organization equates to terrorist activity itself.”

According to court records and evidence presented at trial, Jama and Dhirane sent money to financiers of al-Shabaab in Somalia and Kenya, which they referred to respectively as the “Hargeisa side” and the “Nairobi side.”  The defendants also organized what was called a “Group of Fifteen,” which included women from Somalia, Kenya, Egypt, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and Canada, as well as Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The “Group of Fifteen” met regularly in a private chatroom that Jama established to organize and track monthly payment of money to the “Hargeisa side,” which was used to finance al-Shabaab military operations in the Golis Mountains in northern Somalia, and the “Nairobi side,” which was used to fund two al-Shabaab safehouses.  One of the safehouses was used by al-Shabaab to store weapons and to prepare for attacks.  The other was used to treat al-Shabaab fighters who had been wounded in battle. 

A substantial part of the government’s case consisted of recorded telephone calls and other communications among the “Group of Fifteen.”  These recordings demonstrated that the women had close connections with al-Shabaab leadership and were privy to non-public, inside information concerning al-Shabaab activities.  Jama and Dhirane were recorded as they laughed as the carnage at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi was still taking place.  Dhirane and co-conspirator were also recorded as they laughed at the Boston Marathon Bombing before it became known who committed the attack. 

Jama and Dhirane each face a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison when sentenced on January 19, 2017.  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.

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. 1:14-cr-230.



Unlike many other terrorist cases, there are no photos of the convicted terrorists? Why is that? Just one old court sketch of Hinda Osman Dhirane. And why didn’t the DOJ or media provide their immigration status? If they are refugees why isn’t deportation an option?

At least three other Muslim women were arrested as part of the jihadi funding scheme – no word on the others.

Virginia: Pro-Muslim Refugee Forum at St. Ann Catholic Church in Arlington Oct. 17

A call to action in Virginiastan:

On Monday, October 17th, there will be a pro-Islamic ‘Refugee’ presentation in Arlington, VA from 7-9 PM. The location is:

St. Ann Roman Catholic Church Hall
5300 N. 10th St.
Arlington, VA 22205

Please get this news out so that truth-tellers can descend upon them in droves. The keynote speakers will be Anastasia Brown, director of Refugee Services, HHS, and Patricia S. Maloof, program director, migration and refugee services, Arlington Catholic Charities.

The church is just off I66, close to where George Mason crosses. I know the area fairly well. Just down Glebe Road from there is the Buckingham neighborhood, which is one of the most heavily culturally enriched areas in the USA. When I lived up there forty years ago it was mostly black and working-class whites, with some Mexicans mixed in. The last time I went down Glebe Road it seemed to be largely Arab/Afghan, with halal food markets, Arabic script on the signs, hijabs everywhere, etc. But I assume there are still some Salvadorans, Hondurans, and Guatemalans around, since the St. Ann church advertises Spanish-language masses and events.

The event is listed in their current parish bulletin on page 5, available here:  http://stannchurch.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/October-9-2016.pdf

Refugee Resettlement in the U.S. – With Anastasia Brown and Patricia Maloof

Do you have questions about the need and process for resettling refugees in the United States? St. Ann Adult Religious Enrichment Committee is hosting a presentation by two experts in the field. On Monday, October 17, 2016, a program focusing on Refugee Resettlement in the U.S.: A National and Local
Humanitarian Response will be held in the St. Ann Parish Hall from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. We are very fortunate that such knowledgeable persons have
accepted our invitation to speak at St. Ann. Anastasia Brown currently serves as Director of the Division of Refugee Services in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement. Prior to this position, she served for many years as the Director of Refugee Resettlement for the U.S.
Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Patricia S. Maloof is the current Program Director of Migration and Refugee Services of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington and has previous
experience at the national level with resettling refugees and other legal immigrants.

We hope many of you will come and participate in this very timely program.


A quick search online finds that Maloof is a long-time importer of Muslims to the United States and even wrote a book on how to profit from it (via Wayback Machine – Muslim Refugees in the United States A Guide for Service Providers]. Maloof has recently been making the rounds, telling gullible listeners how they can help American towns become more Islamic. maloof

Ann Corcoran, the author of the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog, wrote the book all Americans should read: “Refugee Resettlement and the Hijra to America.
