Washington: Tri-City leaders to meet with terror-linked Muslim group…on 9/11

Muslims across the U.S. are quietly using the attacks of their armed brethren on 9/11/2001 to spread Islam and sharia in the U.S. Fourteen years is a blink of an eye when it comes to establishing a worldwide caliphate.

via Tri-City area Muslims meet with local leaders | Local News | Tri-CityHerald.com.

A meeting aimed in part at helping Tri-City elected officials become better acquainted with the local Muslim community was planned Friday in West Richland.

The session also was meant to help Tri-City area Muslims become more engaged in government.

Muslims + government = sharia.

Similar meetings will be held in the Tri-Cities in the future, with the next one planned for September.

They’re part of a initiative by the state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, a civil liberties and advocacy organization.

Arsalan Bukhari, executive director of CAIR-WA, was in town this week for the session. The meetings “provide a mutual benefit,” he said.

Terror-listed and HAMAS-terrorist linked CAIR.

The West Richland session was at the Islamic Center of Tri-Cities. Benton County Prosecutor Andy Miller and a staffer from the office of U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., were scheduled to attend. The next meeting is Sept. 11 in Kennewick, with different leaders invited to participate.



In Michigan, the mayors of Lansing will be hosting a Ramadan party for Muslims on 9/11 – three months after Ramadan ended.

Seattle: 9th Circuit Court Enforces Sharia, Bans Anti-Terrorist Bus Ad

via Seattle Counter-Terror Ad Banned by 9th U.S. Circuit Court.

by Pamela Geller

This all started back in 2013, when the FBI was running a terrorism awareness campaign featuring bus ads depicting photos of sixteen of the world’s Most Wanted Terrorists.

This was a publicity campaign sponsored by the Joint Terrorism Task Force for the State Department’s Rewards for Justice (RFJ) program. The ad featured the world’s leading global terrorists. As it happened, all but one were Muslim. Islamic supremacists and their leftist lapdogs demanded the want ad come down, claiming it was insulting to Muslims. The FBI caved and pulled the Seattle-area bus ads featuring the “Faces of Global Terrorism” after receiving complaints “that the ads stereotype Muslims.”

My organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), believed that this public awareness message was critical to national security and should run. We are constantly being clubbed with the claim that “moderate Muslims” abhor and reject the acts of terrorism that are constantly committed in the name of their religion, so why would they object to a wanted poster featuring Islamic terrorists who supposedly have twisted and hijacked their peaceful religion? Why would “moderate Muslims” provide cover for jihad terror? Why, indeed.

AFDI submitted a virtual copy of the FBI ad to run on Seattle transit. The cowards at Seattle King Metro refused to run the ad, claiming that it was disparaging to Muslims. Reality is disparaging to Muslims?

We sued Seattle King Metro. Predictably, the liberal fascists in Seattle sided with the supremacists. We appealed to the clowns on the notorious 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. And now they, as expected, ruled in favor of sharia and supremacism.

Of all the free speech legal battles I am embroiled in, this one is the most absurd. It illustrates the crippling submission and capitulation of government authorities to Islamic supremacist demands. In this ruling, Judge Susan Graber presented the facts in a ridiculously skewed manner: “The FBI is not offering a reward up to $25 million for the capture of one of the pictured terrorists,” she claimed in her ruling. “The FBI is not offering rewards at all, and the State Department offers a reward of at most $5 million, not $25 million, for the capture of one of the pictured terrorists.” She went on to claim that we had not refuted “those basic facts,” which she claimed was “beside the point.” She asserted that it was “indisputable that Plaintiffs’ proposed ad is plainly inaccurate as a simple matter of fact.”

Everything Graber says here is absurd. Yet AP said in the same vein: “The FBI is not offering rewards at all, and the State Department offers a reward of at most $5 million, not $25 million, for the capture of one of the pictured terrorists.” It added that “the judges said Metro’s rejection ‘likely was reasonable.’ ‘Nothing in the record suggests either that Metro would have accepted the ad with the same inaccuracy if only the ad had expressed a different viewpoint or that Metro has accepted other ads containing false statements,’ the ruling said.”

The truth, however, is that we simply ran the FBI ad, with no substantive changes. Seattle Metro accepted the FBI ad and then rejected ours after the FBI caved to Muslim demands to take the ad down. The AFDI ad is exactly the same as the FBI ad that was taken down, except for the attribution and the background color. We didn’t change the amount of the reward for capture of the terrorists, or the source of that reward: our information came straight from the FBI ad, and any assertion to the contrary is a product of Graber’s febrile imagination.

Seattle: Dem mayor introduces sharia law plan for Muslim home buyers

Muslim immigration leads to sharia. via Seattle mayor offers plan to help followers of Sharia law buy houses – Puget Sound Business Journal. h/t Jane

Creepy:  Sharia law introducing Seattle Mayor Ed Murray.

For some Muslims, it can be hard to buy a house, and Mayor Ed Murray plans to do something about it.

On Monday, Murray’s housing committee released its recommendations for ways the city can increase housing in the city. Most ideas were what you’d expect, including increasing the city’s housing levy and implementing new rules and regulations to foster development of market-rate and lower-income housing.

One suggestion would help followers of Sharia law buy houses. That’s virtually impossible now because Sharia law prohibits payment of interest on loans. The 28-member committee recommended the city convene lenders and community leaders to explore options for increasing access to Sharia-compliant loan products.

More and more lenders are offering Sharia-compliant financing, according to a USA Today report. The sector has grown to more than $1.6 trillion in assets worldwide over the past three decades, and analysts see potential for continued growth as the number of Muslims in the United States and Europe grows.

It’s unclear how many Muslims in Seattle would benefit from Murray’s plan. The Washington state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) estimates more than 30,000 Muslims live in the greater Seattle area, and Chapter Executive Director Arsalan Bukhari on Tuesday said it’s “fairly common” for some not to seek loans.

CAIR has been identified as a terrorist organization by the UAE. Many of CAIR’s leaders have been jailed or deported on terror crimes. [see Gallery of Terror-Linked CAIR Leaders]

Based on what he called “rough anecdotal evidence,” Bukhari estimated a couple hundred people aren’t borrowing money for houses due to their religion. He said this includes even high-wage earners, such as the more than 1,000 Muslims who work for Microsoft (Nasdaq: MFST) and more than 500 Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN) employees.

They could easily qualify for home loans but opt not to apply “simply because they don’t want to pay interest,” Bukhari said.

So called sharia mortgages are a scam and Muslims are still leveraging the tax benefits of the mortgage interest payment.

Murray will send legislation based on the committee’s ideas to the City Council for consideration. During a press conference, he said he wants to help Muslims.

“We will work to develop new tools for Muslims who are prevented from using conventional mortgage products due to their religious beliefs,” Murray said.


 Their religious beliefs also call for killing those who leave Islam, killing gays (another of Murray’s favorite groups), having four wives, marrying children, and waging jihad. Is Murray going to help Muslims enjoy those aspects of their religion too?

Washington: Third mosque being built in Snohomish County

mukilteo-mosque

via Islamic group plans to build mosque in Mukilteo | HeraldNet.com – Local news.

An Islamic group has bought property and is raising money to build the worship center, which would join mosques in Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace.

MUKILTEO — Followers of Islam in Snohomish County could have a new place to worship in the years to come.

Muslims who attend services in rented space on Everett Mall Way recently bought land in Mukilteo with plans to build a mosque on the property.

The Islamic Center of Mukilteo would be only the third mosque in the county, according to the group. The others are Masjud Umar al-Farooq in Mountlake Terrace and Dar-al-arqam Islamic Centre in Lynnwood.

Only the 3rd mosque?

The property is located on Harbour Pointe Boulevard SW just off the Mukilteo Speedway, next to Bank of America and near Mukilteo City Hall.

Strategically located next to a bank and near City Hall. And near the local high school too.

A group, also called the Islamic Center of Mukilteo, was formed to manage the endeavor. About 10 members met on Saturday in the parking lot next to the parcel for a tailgate lunch to celebrate the launching of the project.

“They are excited about it,” said Faisal Sheikh of Snohomish, a member of the group.

The mosque would draw 200 to 400 people for worship, member Zeb Akbar of Mukilteo said. The primary weekly service would be on Friday afternoons.

200-400 means 300-500.

The mosques in Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace draw 600 or more worshippers, Mukilteo group members estimated.

The group bought the Mukilteo property, just under an acre in size, for $245,000, Akbar said. Preliminary plans call for a 4,000-square foot building. It’s estimated the mosque would cost $600,000.

200-400 people on a lot less than an acre in size?

The group hasn’t raised those funds, Akbar said. Most of the money to buy the property was donated by members of Muslim gatherings around the area.Akbar said the group plans to approach the project bit-by-bit as funds become available. They’ll start by clearing the property and arranging for connections to the sewer system and utilities, he said.

Worship services and other features of the building, including a library and game room, will be open to the public, members said.

For dawah purposes.

Mohammed Riaz Khan of Mukilteo is president of the group. Khan was one of 11 people who filed for a vacant position on the Mukilteo City Council. The new council member is scheduled to be selected Jan. 13.

First the mosque. Taking spots on local school and city councils. And that’s how it begins. 

Khan and other members said they want the mosque to be part of the community.”

Anyone can come,” member Naseer Ahmed of Everett said.

Mukilteo mayor-elect Jennifer Gregerson said it will be good to see the vacant land next to the bank put to use.

“I think it’s great, we have a diverse community, I think it’s exciting,” she said.

Muslim colonization may cause excitement, but usually not in any positive manner.


Some tidbits from the Islamic group’s website:

Mission Statement
The Islamic Center of Mukilteo is an organization that endeavours to serve as a beacon of Islamic light nurturing the emotional, social, moral, mental and spiritual potentialities of the Muslim community inMukilteo. It aspires to unshackle the community from the fetters of ignorance, innovations and superstitions by providing authentic Islamic knowledge so that they are guided to the pure, unadulterated precepts of Islam according to the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and the traditions of Allah’s Final Messenger, Muhammad (pbuh).

That should worry residents of Mukilteo.

Objectives
The ideals of the Islamic Center of Mukilteo are mirrored in the following objectives;
• To propagate, publish and otherwise expound the doctrines of Islam.
• To protect, preserve and promote Islamic values.
• To provide for the educational needs of the community.
• To provide religious guidance and counsel
• To foster unity and brotherhood
• To co-ordinate Islamic activities for the community
• To administer and dispose of the charity of the community


As Obama keeps importing Muslims by the thousands, the Muslim population and their barracks mosques will continue to grow.

Senior female ISIS figure revealed as Muslim student…from Seattle

via Senior female Isis figure who helped recruit women from Europe to Syria is revealed as student from Seattle – Middle East – World – The Independent. h/t Jihad WatchUmm-Waqqas

A senior female Isis figure who reportedly helped recruit women to join the extremist group in areas under its self-declared caliphate has been exposed as a student from Seattle, who may have been living in the city up until March this year.

The person behind the influential @_UmmWaqqas Twitter account has been revealed by Channel 4 as a woman in her 20s who lived and studied in the US.

Her Twitter account had a following of over 8,000 before it was suspended and shows that British recruits, such as Aqsa Mahmood, and other women from Europe were in contact with her in the days running up their departure. Mahmood goes by the name of ‘Umm Layth’ online and tweets from the @_UmmWaqqas account included: “Legit I talk to @ummlayth everyday” and “Umm Layth has more BALLS than most men & more heart/iman to have left her home for Allah’s sake.”

She is also reportedly listed as a contact for recruits in a travel document explaining the best methods for reaching territories held by Isis in Syria.

The investigation found her Twitter account was accessed by someone in Seattle as recently as March, but her friends insist that she has since moved away. One told Channel 4 she may have relocated to Saudi Arabia, while another suggested she could be living in Denver, Colorado.

However, her social media accounts also presented a passion for American football, the Super Bowl, eating takeout food with her friends and going to the gym, while photographs of her day-to-day life were found to show locations in and around Seattle.

In another tweet, Umm Waqqas said she was studying journalism at university before switching to teaching, declaring: “I no longer want to be a journalist (considering the bias news agencies etc) I know [sic] want to be a TEACHER!”

Channel 4 said she refused to answer allegations about her activities and whereabouts when they approached her on social media. She now appears to have stripped her Facebook account down and changed the name of it.

 

Seattle: Somali Muslims want teacher fired for showing Charlie Hebdo cartoons

I.e., they want sharia…enforced. ASAP.

Muslim occupier who wants 1st Amendment amended

via Somali protestors demand teacher resign over Mohammed cartoons – The Seattle Globalist.

Controversy over cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed hit home in Seattle recently, culminating in a protest outside of southend refugee service provider on Friday.

A group of Somali Americans gathered outside the Refugee Women’s Alliance (ReWA) on Martin Luther King, Jr. Way to demand the resignation of a teacher who showed the cartoons to her teenage students on the day after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris.

“We’re not gonna be silent when it’s something that’s not right,” said Hassan Aden, who was one of between 15 to 20 people who attended the protest. “We’re trying to show that we’re not happy with what she did.”

The teacher, Deepa Bhandaru, recently earned her Ph.D from the UW Political Science department, and works for ReWA teaching a free class on world affairs for youth, where she showed the cartoons during a lesson on free speech and religious pluralism.

A post by the Stranger (where Bhandaru has written a number of film reviews and other articles) came to her defense, saying that she’d already sent lengthly letters of apology to her colleagues at ReWA and to a local mosque attended by some of her Somali students.

When protesters arrived Friday afternoon the ReWA offices were shuttered, with all staff gone for the day, and an official statement taped to the door (posted in full below).

Shahzad Qadri, a member of ReWA’s board of directors said the decision to close was based on fears for the safety of the staff, following incidents of vandalism early in the week.

“A lot of teenagers in our community were very angry and frustrated,” said Fatma Yessef, who attended the protest with her daughter Sumaya. “We told them we have to vent our frustration in a peaceful, nice way and say ‘you cannot do this to our prophet.’”

Like Yessef, many at the protest said they’d lived in the U.S. for decades and emphasized that they embraced American values of freedom of speech and religion. But more than one participant said they felt that showing the cartoons to youth had crossed a line, and insisted that they would only be satisfied if Bhandaru were fired.

Qadri said the decision about Bhandaru’s future at ReWA would be made based on an ongoing internal investigation, the results of which would be public.

For Yessef, who said she’s know Bhandaru several years, the apologies were too little too late.

“She should respect us as much as we respect her — her religion, her personality,” she said. “I don’t want to disrespect anybody for the way they are…I don’t think it’s free speech to talk about somebody’s religion, somebody’s beloved prophet like that.”


Did the teacher flee to India fearing for her life? More: Demonstration at Refugee Center After Longtime Teacher Prints Charlie Hebdo Cartoons for a Discussion About Religion and Expression

Bhandaru apologized and explained herself in two letters: a 2,300-word one to her colleagues (in which she said the workshop itself went well, with students generally agreeing that “sometimes one person’s freedom might offend another person, but that’s the price we pay to be free”) and a 500-word letter to the Abu-Bakr Islamic Center. “I have reached out to all of the Muslim youth in my program and their parents, apologizing and guaranteeing them that I will never make this mistake again,” the second letter stated. “I am not the enemy here.”

On Friday, Jan 16, an hour after Bhandaru took a flight to India, the Somali staff at ReWA staged a demonstration at the main office. They claimed that the multi-ethnic agency—which provides services in 37 languages at 10 different locations around the city—discriminated against Somalis and Muslims and chanted “Deepa’s gotta go.”

Bhandaru says none of her students, nor the parents of her students, were unduly upset by the workshop—and that the demonstrators, many of whom aren’t fully proficient in English, may not have been told the full story. “They’ve been manipulating the fact that the people don’t speak the language,” she said of the organizers. “The parents who are upset aren’t the parents of my kids. They’re trying to gain power politically, and maybe gain power within the agency.”

Bhandaru—who acquired a Ph.D in political theory and was given an “excellence in teaching” award from the University of Washington—is currently on paid leave while the agency “investigates” the matter. Because ReWA is partially funded by city money, city investigators may become involved as well.

“Unfortunately, freedom of speech is always used as the fig leaf when people are bashing Muslims,” says Jeff Siddiqui, head of American Muslims of Puget Sound. “If this was a deliberate act of provocation, I’d say fire her. Absolutely. But if now the person gets it and is contrite, I don’t see why, because then we’d lose a good teacher.”

After the first demonstration, one of Bhandaru’s students—named Munira, a devout Muslim from the Oromo community—sent her a text: “That’s just sad that you are trying to help them, they use that against you,” she wrote. “I will pray for you for this drama to be over. It’s just really sad seeing Muslim nowadays acting this way.”


h/t Refugee Resettlement Watch who writes:

Be sure to have a look at the most recent Form990 for Refugee Women’s Alliance just one of the hundreds of contractors and subcontractors living off the taxpayers to help the ‘stranger’.    In 2013 its total income (p. 9) was $5.5 million and $4.4 million came from government grants. It reaped another $600,000 from child care income (some of that was probably subsidized by taxpayers too)!

What is wrong with this picture—we pay to feed, clothe, house and educate them and get a kick in the teeth as a reward!

Seattle: Muslim arrested for threats to kill Ferguson police officer

The relentless cries by  designated terror groups CAIR, ISNA and foreign terror groups like ISIS to wage jihad in Ferguson nearly took one of our finest.

via Feds: Kirkland man arrested for threats to kill Ferguson officer | Breaking News | KOMO News.

SEATTLE (AP) – A man was arrested Tuesday on federal charges of posting Internet threats against a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, after a black teenager was shot and killed.

Defendant Jaleel Tarik Abdul-Jabbaar, 46, of Kirkland began posting threats on Facebook soon after the shooting of Michael Brown, according to the criminal complaint.

The complaint includes FBI Special Agent Brett Grover saying, “the threats relate to the widely publicized events of Aug. 9 during which Officer D.W. fatally shot Michael Brown.”

The complaint does not specifically name then-Officer Darren Wilson as the victim of the threats. It’s a policy to withhold the names of victims in such cases, said Emily Langlie, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle.

Wilson later resigned from the Ferguson Police Department.

Abdul-Jabbaar made an initial appearance in U.S. District Court and was appointed a federal public defender. The judge set a detention hearing for Friday.

On Aug. 30, Abdul-Jabbaar posted, “we really need to start killing the police … OOooopppss I mean our oppressors,” the complaint said.

Federal prosecutors said Abdul-Jabbaar posted inflammatory messages for months that called on others to join him on a trip to Ferguson to “give back the bullets” that were fired at Brown.

Acting U.S. Attorney Annette Hayes said Americans have a right to speak out about current events and criticize the government, but “our freedom of speech does not, however, extend to making threats to kill or injure law enforcement officers.”

Abdul-Jabbaar is facing three counts of making interstate threats. Each charge carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.
