California: Muslim CEO arrested, sent pornographic videos to 9- and 10-year-old Virginia boys

SANTA ANA, Calif. (KABC) — A CEO of an Irvine company is facing child sex charges, and investigators say they’re looking for other possible victims.

Prosecutors allege Qayed Shareef, 39, pretended to be a teenage boy named Jeremy Stevens when he used an app called Tango to contact a 9- and 10-year-old boy, two brothers in Virginia.

“He basically just started it off, ‘Hey what’s your age?’ And within an hour, took it sexual,” said prosecutor Vanessa Woods. “He sent photos and videos of himself, as well as pornographic videos.”

Authorities say the 39-year-old then gave instructions to the boys to record each other and to him send the photos and videos.

“He was very specifically asking them to do various sexual positions, acts, show sexual body parts,” Woods said.

Prosecutors say the crimes allegedly started Christmas Day 2013 and lasted four days. Investigators discovered 30 different videos of sex acts after being contacted by the boy’s mother.

Shareef is married, has a child and lives in Aliso Viejo. He is the CEO of Adaptive Media and describes himself online as an “experienced digital advertising executive.”

His arrest this week came after a year of investigation.

Lt. Jeff Hallock of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said Shareef likely had more knowledge on how to evade law enforcement because he “has an expertise in computers and IP addresses and Internet.”

Shareef, who has pleaded not guilty, is expected to return to court on March 27. He is being held on $2 million bail.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Orange County District Attorney’s Office at (714) 347-8794.

 New Most Wanted Terrorist
Naturalized U.S. Citizen Born in Somalia Added to FBI List

01/29/15

Liban Haji Mohamed, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Somalia, has been named to the FBI’s list of Most Wanted Terrorists, and a reward of up to $50,000 is being offered for information leading to his arrest and conviction. Mohamed is charged with providing material support and resources to al Qaeda and al Shabaab, a Somali-based terrorist organization.

“Al Shabaab has claimed responsibility for many bombings in Somalia and Uganda and the 2013 attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya,” said Carl Ghattas, special agent in charge of the Counterterrorism Division at the FBI’s Washington Field Office. “Liban Mohamed is believed to have left the U.S. with the intent to join al Shabaab in East Africa. We believe he is currently there operating on behalf of that terrorist organization.”

Traveling with his U.S. passport, Mohamed is thought to have left the United States on or about July 5, 2012. Before his departure, the 29-year-old lived in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., where he worked as a cab driver.

“While living in Northern Virginia, Mohamed was a recruiter and radicalizer for al Shabaab, which historically has targeted Westerners to go to Somalia and fight for them,” Ghattas said. “Not only did Mohamed choose to go to Somalia and fight with al Shabaab, he took a prominent role in trying to recruit people and have them train with weapons.”

Shortly after leaving the U.S, the international police organization Interpol issued a blue notice for Mohamed to collect additional information about his identity, location, and activities. On August 15, 2014, Interpol issued a red notice to seek him as a wanted fugitive.

Mohamed speaks English, Somali, and Arabic. He is black, 6 feet tall, weighs about 194 pounds, and has black hair and brown eyes. He could be using aliases including Abu Ayrow, Shirwa, Shirwac, Qatiluhum, and Qatil. Mohamed was a close associate of convicted terrorist Zachary Chesser, who was sentenced in 2011 to 25 years in prison for attempting to provide material support to al Shabaab.

Virginia: Another mega mosque rises…latest across from high school

Another mosque rises in Virginia. As noted in this 2012 Creeping Sharia post, it’s one of at least three mega mosques going up in Henrico County, Virginia.

via West End Islamic Center. h/t @moneyjihad

With Grace of Allah (s.w.t.), prayers and support from the community today 12/18/2014 we obtained our Certificate of Use and Occupancy for County of Henrico, VA confirming the building is now approved to be used as Masjid (Place of worship). We thank Allah (s.w.t.) and our community who supported us to achieve this milestone.

With Grace of Allah (s.w.t.), prayers and support from the community today 11/18/2013 we had our successfull Pre-Construction meeting with Henrico County and were given approval to go ahead with the construction phase 1. Completion of Phase 1 would enable us to obtain Change of Use and will also provide more convinient and safer access to existing facility. May Allah reward all who have supported and helped us to achieve this Milestone.

According to Zillow.com, the address provided by WEIC was until recently a single-family home. It was sold in 2012 for $200,000 yet is now appraised on Zillow at $400,000. The mega mosque will be on the opposite corner of, and a few hundred feet from, Deep Run High School.

Hence the need for a ‘change of use’ to convert a single-family home into a mosque…across the street from a high school. So much for zoning laws and useless zoning boards.

Virginia: Saudi-born Muslim infiltrated Navy, leaked plans to sink new U.S. aircraft carrier

…fortunately it wasn’t to Egypt as he thought but to an Arabic-speaking undercover agent. Let’s hope the agent isn’t doing double-time too. Navy infiltrator

via Navy engineer tried to leak plans for new aircraft carrier to Egypt, U.S. says – The Washington Post.

A Naval engineer was charged Friday with trying to leak drawings of the military’s new aircraft carrier to the Egyptian government, not knowing that he was dealing with an undercover FBI agent.

Federal authorities alleged in court filings that Mostafa Ahmed Awwad, 35, of Yorktown, Va., gave computer drawings of the USS Gerald R. Ford to an agent posing as an Egyptian intelligence officer and talked about where to shoot the vessel to sink it. He was charged with attempted exportation of defense articles and technical data and was ordered held after an initial appearance Friday in federal district court in Norfolk.

Awwad’s alleged plot was a startling one, potentially threatening the security of a carrier that officials have hailed as a technological marvel. The ship — which will weigh 100,000 tons and hold 4,660 staffers and 75 aircraft — is expected to cost $13 billion to complete. It is being built in Virginia.

Authorities alleged in court filings that Awwad, a civilian who worked in the Nuclear Engineering and Planning Department at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, had a secret clearance and that some of the materials he provided to the undercover agent were not supposed to be released to non-U.S. citizens, or contained technical data that was subject to U.S. export laws. The court filings stated that Awwad was born in Saudi Arabia but had married a U.S. citizen in Cairo in 2007 and went about becoming a U.S. citizen then.

It is unclear why authorities first became concerned with Awwad, but in September, an undercover agent speaking in Arabic and identifying himself as “Yousef” from Washington, D.C., called the engineer and asked to meet at a park in Hampton, Va., according to a search warrant affidavit.

Awwad, who had been working at the Norfolk shipyard since February and had the secret clearance for only about a month, agreed to meet without asking for any more information, authorities alleged in the affidavit.

The events that transpired in the following months seem drawn from the pages of a spy novel. Awwad told the agent he wanted to use his Navy position to help give military technology to Egypt, according to the affidavit. The pair met at the Sandy Bottom Nature Park in Hampton, Va., and used a dead-drop location — a secret hole in the ground off a secluded hiking trail where each could leave materials for the other to find — to avoid law enforcement detection, according to the affidavit.

They also exchanged pay-as-you-go phones and agreed to code their ­e-mails. Awwad, for example, used the pseudonym “Cathy Jean” and the subject line “Sick” to indicate a problem, according to the affidavit. At one meeting, Awwad flashed a .45-caliber handgun, according to the affidavit.

Awwad described to the agent a plan he had to bug his computer so that he could copy restricted materials without drawing attention, according to the affidavit. But authorities allege he also used more old-fashioned methods. At one point, he asked the agent for money to buy a pinhole camera, and he was spotted in his office at the shipyard using what appeared to be a pocket camera to take photos of an aircraft carrier’s design schematics, according to the affidavit.

The affidavit describes at least 10 drawings of the USS Ford that Awwad gave to the undercover agent.

A spokeswoman for Huntington Ingalls Industries, which is building the USS Ford, declined to comment for this story, referring inquiries to the Navy. A spokesman for the Norfolk Naval Shipyard said he was unable to comment immediately, and another Navy spokesman did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

No lawyer was listed for Awwad in court records, and relatives could not immediately be located.

 More: Saudi-born US naval engineer allegedly gave undercover agent info on how to sink carrier

The affidavit says Awwad was born in Saudia Arabia and married a U.S. citizen in Cairo in 2007. After his marriage he took steps to become an American citizen.

The court papers also say the Navy hired Awwad to work in the Norfolk Naval Shipyard’s nuclear engineering and planning department in February and that he got a security clearance in August.

The FBI sting began in September when the undercover contacted Awwad. The court papers do not say why Awwad became a target.

During their first meeting in a park in Hampton, Va., Awwad explained to “Yousef” that he intended to use his position to obtain military technology for use by the Egyptian government, including but not limited to, the designs of the USS Gerald Ford nuclear aircraft carrier.

“Awwad agreed to conduct clandestine communications with the undercover FBI agent by email and unattributable telephones and to conduct ‘dead drops’ in a concealed location in the park,” the Justice Department said in a press release, cited by the Navy Times.

At the Oct. 9 meeting Awwad asked for $1,500 to buy a tiny camera to enable him to photograph restricted material around the shipyard, according to the affidavit.

On Oct. 23, Awwad retrieved $3,000 in cash left at the dead-drop location. He left behind a container with an external hard drive and two passport photos. The FBI later collected the containers.

The day after Thanksgiving Awwad was observed in his Navy office holding what appeared to be aircraft design schematics which he placed on the floor and photographed.

The Pilot said the USS Ford is the lead ship in the Navy’s new class of carriers. The Ford stands 25 stories high and is three football fields long.

Retired rear admiral Fred Metz, head of the Navy’s carrier and air station program until 1991, told the paper its bad enough for the schematics of any Navy vessel to be given away.

“But it’s worse to give away the Ford’s,” he said. “There is a whole lot of new technology on it we haven’t seen before.”

Virginia: Muslim convert with 7-year old daughter arrested for attempting to aid ISIS

via Virginia woman accused of attempting to aid Islamic State – The Washington Post.

Federal authorities have arrested and charged a Henrico County, Va., woman who they say wrote Facebook posts supportive of the Islamic State and offered to help someone connect with the terrorist group in Syria, court documents show.

Heather Elizabeth Coffman, 29, is charged with making a false statement regarding an offense involving international or domestic terrorism. Coffman, it seems, was caught in a sting and unknowingly offered to help an undercover FBI agent connect someone with the Islamic State in Syria, according to a federal affidavit. Authorities say she lied to investigators who were looking into her support of the extremist group.

1416284892562_Image_galleryImage_CNN_After_seven_months_of

The FBI’s investigation of Coffman seemed to begin in April, as agents took note of her postings on Facebook and sought search warrants to access her various accounts. On June 23, for example, Coffman posted two images with text that included a fuller name for the Islamic State: “We are all ISIS, Islamic State of Iraq & Sham,” according to the affidavit. On June 28, when someone asked why Coffman was expressing support for the group, she responded, “I love ISIS!” according to the affidavit.

Coffman later wrote about persuading her sister to develop an interest in the Islamic State and said, “My dad is a little angry because I got her into all this jihad stuff,” according to the affidavit. A woman who identified herself as Coffman’s mother declined to comment Monday.

An FBI agent posing as someone with views similar to Coffman’s made contact with her in July and, some months later, told her about an associate who wanted to travel to Syria to fight with the Islamic State, according to the affidavit. Coffman offered to help the associate connect with a facilitator and claimed to be able to verify the facilitator’s legitimacy, according to the affidavit.

She told the agent last month that she had done so but that the facilitator was unresponsive, according to the affidavit. She declined to turn over the facilitator’s contact information to the undercover agent, according to the affidavit.

Court records suggest that Coffman suspected law enforcement officials might be monitoring her. At one point, she developed a code system to talk with the undercover agent and at another told the man she said was her husband that the “[National Security Agency] has already seen” his pro-Islamic State Facebook activity. But she apparently was unaware of the undercover agent’s real aim.

On Thursday, two FBI agents interviewed Coffman at her job in Glen Allen, Va., and she denied that the undercover agent had expressed support for the Islamic State or other terrorist organizations, according to the affidavit. It is unclear where Coffman worked.

Court records indicate that Coffman appeared in federal court in Richmond on Monday morning and was ordered held until her next hearing on Wednesday.

Obama brings first military detainee from Afghanistan to U.S. for civilian trial

And shortly thereafter, terrorist bestie:

Attorney General Eric Holder chose not to seek the death penalty…

Whiskey, tango, foxtrot. via Russian Taliban fighter pleads not guilty to terrorism charges in US court | The Guardian.

A Russian man charged with leading a Taliban attack against US forces in Afghanistan pleaded not guilty to terrorism charges Friday and was ordered held until his 13 April trial.

Irek Hamidullin was arraigned on 12 counts, including providing material support to terrorists, trying to destroy US military aircraft and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction. Half of the charges are punishable by up to life in prison. Attorney general Eric Holder chose not to seek the death penalty for the weapon of mass destruction charge, assistant US attorney James Gillis said at the 15-minute hearing.

Hamidullin is the first military detainee from Afghanistan to be brought to the US for trial. His transfer represents the latest attempt by the Obama administration to show that it can use the criminal court system to deal with terror suspects – a move criticized by some Republican lawmakers who believe such cases should be handled by military tribunals.

US officials say Hamidullin is a Russian veteran of the Soviet war in Afghanistan who stayed in the country and joined the Taliban. He was captured in 2009 after an attack on Afghan border police and US soldiers in Khowst province. He had been held at the US Parwan detention facility at Bagram airfield before being brought to the US.

According to the 19-page indictment, Hamidullin was an officer and tank commander in the Russian military during the 1980s and was trained in the use of such weapons as anti-aircraft machine guns and portable rockets. He became affiliated with the Taliban in 2001.

The indictment says Hamidullin commanded three groups of insurgents that attacked Afghan border police at Camp Leyza, one of six locations the Taliban had identified as possible targets. He directed insurgents armed with anti-aircraft machine guns to fire at US military helicopters responding to the attack, the indictment says, and later used a machine gun to shoot at US troops and Afghan border police assessing damage at the battle site.

National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan has said the decision to transfer Hamidullin was made in light of the agreement by the US that it will turn over all prisons in Afghanistan to the Afghan government by 2015. As of last month there were 13 non-Afghan detainees at Parwan. The Obama administration is facing pressure to transfer those detainees before December, when the US-led Nato combat mission ends.


 Transfer them where? In December, when combat ends, there will be non-combat boots – mostly American – on the ground engaging in combat. 

As Atlas Shrugs points out,

He is given the same civil rights as a US citizen…

…when all is said and done and he gets sentenced to prison dawah and his halal food, he can further radicalize the Muslim converts in jail. Hell, he can raise an army.”

PS: This is not the first foreign Muslim terrorist Obama has brought to the U.S. There have been many others but this is the first from Afghanistan.h

He’s being tried in Virginia according to the DOJ announcement.

Connolly (D-VA) Supports Funding Hamas (audio)

U.S. Rep. Gerry Connolly, D- Va., defended U.S. funding of the Palestinian Authority, despite the fact that the authority includes members of Hamas, a group the U.S. says is a terror organization.

Connolly’s remarks, at a Sept. 28 Arab American Candidates Night forum, emphasized his determination to fight House of Representatives colleagues who might block the funding.

He’s been defending Islam, sharia and Hamas-funding for 20 years.

Connolly’s Republican challenger in November, Suzanne Scholte, posted the audio clip on her YouTube page of the congressman defending his position.

In a news release Tuesday, she said, “We also need to destroy terrorists not fund them.”

“Sending money to Hamas is reckless and hurts Israel, our closest ally in the Middle East – while destabilizing the entire region by legitimizing a terrorist group with U.S. dollars,” Scholte said in the news release.

In an interview with Watchdog.org’s Virginia bureau, Scholte said, “Since being elected to Congress, Gerry Connolly has become more and more out of touch with his constituents while becoming more and more radical in his positions.  It is the reason he stopped having town hall meetings years ago as his extremist views on foreign policy are completely at odds with Northern Virginia, one of the most educated and diverse areas in the nation.”

Shocking new audio from a speech last week from Gerry Connolly.

“When there are voices calling for the defunding of the Palestinian Authority, I oppose them, publically,” Connolly said, later referring to the Palestinian Authority (PA) as just “Palestine.” Calls came to defund the PA after Hamas—designated a “terrorist group” by the United States and much of the Western world—officially joined the PA’s unity government. With the United States still sending funding to the PA, our government is now directly funding a terrorist group and their attacks on Israel.

At this same speech, Connolly called a large group of Virginians “bigots” for having concerns over potential terror activity in Northern Virginia. Connolly also spoke in defense of deposed Egypt dictator Mohammed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, saying, “I was the only member of the Foreign Affairs Committee who spoke out against the Egyptian military after the coup, because they overthrew a democratically elected government, whether we like it or not… that government did not mow down thousands in Cairo and Alexandria.”

Connolly was the only member of the Foreign Affairs Committee who opposed Morsi’s removal—despite Morsi granting himself unlimited powers, censoring and prosecuting the media, and attacking nonviolent protestors.

 More shockingly in this audio, on 9/11 Connolly wasn’t worried about the rights or protection of Americans – he ordered cops to defend and protect any and all mosques, Islamic centers and Islamic prayer sites. As Muslims were attacking America. Subsequently, he helped to submit the police community and FBI to Islamic dawah rather than routing out jihad sympathizers.

Will Virginian’s wake up and vote him out of office or will Northern Virginiastan creep further south?
