Where was he going and why wasn’t he in jail? via Kaufman County arson suspect arrested attempting to flee country – inForney.com.

KAUFMAN COUNTY, Texas — A man charged and indicted for an arson fire at his own auto parts warehouse in 2013 was again arrested attempting to flee the country from a Houston, Texas, airport.

Abudulkader Hassan Elsaadi, was arrested February 21, 2014, and charged with arson related to a September 6, 2013, fire at his auto parts warehouse, A&O Foreign Auto Parts, on South Profit Row in Forney, Texas. The fire destroyed the approximate 5,000-square foot warehouse.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and airport police arrested Elsaadi at the Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas, attempting to leave the country which is in violation of his bond agreement, according to Kaufman County officials. Elsaadi is scheduled to be in court in Kaufman County for a hearing on January 28, 2015.

Elsaadi is being held on a $100,000 bond at the Kaufman County Jail — the same bond amount he was held on when he was initially arrested for arson in February which was posted the same day. An attorney listed for Elsaadi had withdrawn representation and inForney.com was unable to reach any current representation for comment.

via Three men charged with sexual assault of 14-year-old Calgary girl – Calgary | Globalnews.ca. h/t Vlad

CALGARY – Police have charged three men with the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl last year.

Investigators say the assaults occurred while the victim was spending time with the suspects at a southwest home on May 14th, 2014.

It’s alleged the 14-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by each of the men at separate times.

The allegations were brought forward to police in August of 2014, at which point officers launched an investigation to determine who the offenders were.

Police have charged 22-year-old Abas Ahmed Ibrahim (also known as Maxboy or Moe), 21-year-old Omar Kromah (also known as Nef) and 24-year-old Zakariya Mohamed Abdow (also known as Slickthug or Slimthug) with sexual assault, sexual interference with a child under 16 and invitation to sexual touching.

Investigators are asking anyone who has information about this case to call police.

Anyone who has had sexual contact with the three men is urged to contact a doctor and seek testing for sexually transmitted infections.

 

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt blocks emails objecting to their pro-Islam school workbooks

“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” ~ George Orwell, 1984


They control what your children read and learn in school. via FFA – Houghton Mifflin Harcourt blocks emails objecting to their workbooks omitting Christianity and Judaism while including Islam for 15 years.

Florida Association sent out an email alert on February 23, 2015 titled Houghton Mifflin Harcourt admits their vocabulary workbooks omitted Christianity and Judaism while including Islam during the past 15 years.  The email alert encouraged people to send emails urging Houghton Mifflin Harcourt officials to stop omitting Judaism and Christianity from their publications and start providing legally balanced religious content in the future. Thousands of people sent emails.

However, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt started blocking the emails being sent through Florida Family Association’s email server.  The following is the block message received from the Houghton Mifflin Harcourt server:

Rather than respond to the concerns raised in the online campaign Houghton Mifflin Harcourt decided to block the emails that challenged the content of their workbooks.

Several news sites (Fox News and CreepingSharia) reported in late December 2014 that the Pitt County School District in North Carolina was using a vocabulary textbook with a chapter titled The Islamic World.  The work book contained several pages of vocabulary fill in the blank questions such as:

  • “There are such vast numbers of people who are anxious to spread the Muslim faith that it would be impossible to give a(n)___ amount.”
  • “The responses to Muhammad’s teachings were at first _____. Some people responded favorably, while other resisted his claim that ‘there is no God but Allah and Muhammad his Prophet.”
  • “The zenith of any Muslim’s life is a trip to Mecca.”

The entire Islamic World section is posted here.  

Florida Family Association submitted a Public Records Request on January 5, 2015 to the Pitt County School District  which asked for copies of the vocabulary textbook chapter titled The Islamic World.  The request also asked for the separate Christian and Jewish side lessons that the district spokesperson, Brock Letchworth, alleged were also distributed.  Mr. Letchworth complied with the request.  He provided Florida Family Association with a copy of the entire Holt, Rinehart and Winston Vocabulary Workshop Fourth Lesson and two separately created side lessons.

The Holt, Rinehart and Winston Vocabulary Workshop Fourth Lesson was first published 15 years ago.

Florida Family Association began a long drawn out email exchange with Roderick M. Spelman, Vice President of Holt, Rinehart and Winston’s parent company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.  Florida Family Association asked Roderick M. Spelman “What other workbooks are currently offered for this grade level which give the same presentation of Judaism and Christianity that were presented in this workbook for Islamism, Hinduism and Buddhism?”

After several follow up email communications, Mr. Spelman finally answered on February 6, 2015 with:   “After reviewing past product  I cannot provide you with any vocabulary workbook titles that have been published by HMH (presently or via our legacy companies) that present Judaism or Christianity as the basis for a set of vocabulary activities.  That said, our range of Social Studies texts do present content on all major religions. I would be happy to direct you to those title if that would be helpful to you. Please let me know.

However, Mr. Spelman has not provided the alleged “Social Studies texts on all major religions” that he offered on February 6, 2015 despite Florida Family Association’s follow up requests.  

The Holt, Rinehart and Winston Vocabulary Workshop Fourth Lesson workbook is still offered for sale and used in schools. 

By Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s own admission they have not offered during the past fifteen years vocabulary workbooks that have included Chapters on Judaism and Christianity for this grade level but they have for Islam.  Omitting Judaism and Christianity from publications in this manner makes it difficult for school districts to present a curriculum with fairly and legally balanced religious content.

Florida Family Association has prepared a new email for you to send to urge the top three institutional shareholders in Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and the company’s directors to take action to stop the omission of Judaism and Christianity from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt publications and to make sure future publications provide fairly and legally balanced religious content.

Georgia bill seeks to ban foreign law, again

via Ga. and SC again try to ban Sharia law | Online Athens.

Georgia and South Carolina lawmakers worried that Islamic law might influence proceedings in American courtrooms seek to halt such a possibility.

It’s not clear whether Sharia law ever affected proceedings in Georgia and South Carolina, but bills are moving through both state legislatures. Their passage would send a statement to the court system and the U.S. Congress, according to the South Carolina sponsor of a bill aimed at making sure foreign law doesn’t sway the American justice system.

Charleston Republican Rep. Chip Limehouse introduced H. 3521, which says a court can’t use Sharia law, which are based on Islamic principles, or any other foreign law to violate someone’s constitutional rights.

In Georgia, a similar bill championed by Republicans, HB 171, is pending.


Read the bill, that does not mention sharia, here.

It must be reiterated that these bills are far less important than stopping the actual spread of Islam in states across America.

Georgia has a very large and growing Islamic problem – from Muslim charter schools, to mosques being forced on towns and Islam being pushed on public school children, to bloody Ashura rituals that include small children, to jihadis being arrested.

The more Muslims there are in America, the more sharia there will be. At least 57 other nations have learned that deadly lesson. America is no exception.

It’s all in the archives and it’s all striving for the sharia.

 

 

Ex-Muslim Hirsi Ali calls for Islamic reformation

And that’s just one reason why Muslims have been trying to kill her for many years. via ‘In Islam, they are all rotten apples’: Ex-Muslim’s call for religion’s reboot | New York Post.

There was a time when author and activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali believed it all: that, according to Islam, the infidel should die, that the Quran is infallible, that those who violated sharia law — thieves, gays, adulterers — deserved to be stoned to death or beheaded, as they were each Friday in a public gathering place she and her brother called “Chop-Chop Square.”

Today, she is that rare thing: a public intellectual who, despite death threats and charges of bigotry, calls for an end to Islam — not just as the faithful know it, but as we in the West think we know it.

“The assumption is that, in Islam, there are a few rotten apples, not the entire basket,” Ali tells The Post. “I’m saying it’s the entire basket.”

In her book, “Heretic,” Ali argues for a complete reformation of Islam, akin to the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century. Though her own education led her to reject Islam and declare herself an atheist, she believes that for the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims, there must be another way.

“If you are a child brought up to believe that Islam is a source of morality” — as she was, in Africa and Saudi Arabia — “the Muslim framework presents you with the Quran and the hijab. I don’t want to be cruel and say, ‘You grow up and you snap out of it.’ But maybe we who have snapped out of it have not done our best to appeal to those still in it,” she says.

In “Heretic,” Ali says there are three kinds of Muslims. There are the violent, the reformers, and what she believes is the largest group — those who want to practice as they see fit and live peaceably but do not challenge the Quran, the Muslim world’s treatment of women and the LGBT community, or terrorist attacks committed in the name of Islam.

Yet she refuses to label this group as moderate. She believes they have done nothing to deserve it. “I’ve never believed in the word,” Ali says. “It’s totally useless. I think we’re in a time now where we demand answers from Muslims and say, ‘Whose side are you on?’ ”


Wait, didn’t someone already say that?

Canada: McGill Univ. rejects Muslim’s request for sharia-compliant women-only gym hours

But the school did pledge to punish staff with some Islamic dawah. via McGill rejects request for women-only gym hours | CTV Montreal News.

McGill University has rejected two students’ request to establish women-only hours at the on-campus gym.

In a news release, the school said it does not believe in segregating its services, and the fact that it is committed to making sure gym patrons are respectful toward each other were key factors in the decision.

The original request was made by law students Soumia Allalou and Raymond Grafton.

Allalou said that her initiative to dedicate three weekly one-hour women-only sessions per week was inspired by her religious beliefs as a Muslim but she said that all women would benefit.

“A couple of women messaged me and expressed that they would like to see women’s hours implemented. They feel intimidated using the weights section especially. They’ve been harassed, looked at, watched,” she has previously told CTV Montreal.

Though there are already women-only hours at the swimming pool [sic], the university said the pool is “by its nature a different environment than the gym.”

The statement goes on to explain that part of the goal of a recent renovation was to make the fitness centre “as comfortable as possible for all our clientele.”

“We encourage and will continue to encourage all our patrons to engage respectfully with one another, just as we expect all members of our community to treat each other equitably and respectfully in whatever context,” it says.

Among other ongoing measures, the school says it pledges to educate staff to make sure they “understand the needs and sensitivities of a diverse clientele.”

Aka: dawah.

McGill has amongst its graduates…a jihadi.

South Dakota: Muslims looking to grow in Sioux Falls

via KELOLAND.com | SF Muslim Community Looks For New Home. h/t BNI

SIOUX FALLS, SD – Dr. Hesham Elgouhari’s career brought him to Sioux Falls.

“I came from Cleveland Clinic, where we have bigger communities, Muslim communities, community centers, big mosques, Islamic schools, and so forth,” the president of the board of the Muslims Community Center of South Dakota said.

His faith helps keep him in Sioux Falls.

“So to have those people coming to Sioux Falls and not to see something similar or at least trying to provide some of those services that they got in those big communities, it might not be the best environment for them to stay, socially, religiously-wise,” Elgouhari said.

Elgouhari estimates that around four or five thousand Muslim people live in Sioux Falls, with a few hundred more scattered across the state. In Sioux Falls, they worship at two different mosques.

The Muslims Community Center currently meets in a rented space. Its members are looking for their own larger, permanent home to serve the growing Muslim community.

“We are dreaming to have a permanent community center because the taste that we have been having over the last four, five years since we opened this community center temporarily, is just very delicious, very beautiful, very fruitful,” Elgouhari said.

Dr. Mumtaz Niazi is the general secretary of the community center. He believes the people of the local Muslim community are increasingly well-connected.

“You need a place where you can communicate there, your families can come, your kids can come, and they can stay as long as they want and they can pray, they can have fun, they can play around,” Niazi said.

Fatima Mohamed teaches Sunday school at the center. She hopes to help her students maintain their culture.

“I need them to keep that because, some people they come here, and they lost their culture,” she said. “And I want them to keep it.”

“We like this place, it’s safe, it’s nice, it’s good and [we] want [to] stay,” Elgouhari said.

And staying includes maintaining that link to their religion.

“We have to do everything we can to retain us and our families in this town,” Elgouhari said.

No one knows when the new center will open or where it will be. One thing the leadership of the Muslims Community Center does know is that the new facility will be inclusive, and work to fight against misconceptions of the faith.

“I think the perception of the Islam which is currently going on through the media, I will say particularly, is not true reflection,” Niazi said. “It’s the name, religion, is peace.”


He’s lying already. Islam does not mean peace. It means submission. Submission to the will of allah. The blatant dishonesty should make all South Dakaton’s wary about anything and everything this deceptive individual spews.

As we’ve noted previously, Islam’s deadly affects have already been felt in Sioux Falls: South Dakota: Muslim refugee gets life sentence for sex trafficking of teen girls – ran a sex trafficking “house of horror” – including sex trafficking by force and sex trafficking of a child.

And Terror-linked CAIR has tried to shake down South Dakota Dept of Public Safety.
