California: Muslim freeloaders refuse to leave cafe, wage legal jihad when kicked out

Source: Urth Caffe disputes claims of Muslim discrimination | abc7.com

In the video, a woman claims she and her friends were asked to leave the Urth Caffe in Laguna Beach for being Muslim.

But the owner of the restaurant said the woman’s claims are not true.

Sara Farsahk, the woman who posted the video on Facebook, claimed she and her Muslim friends were the victims of discrimination at Urth Caffe.

She explained that they were asked to leave after 45 minutes, to free up a table for customers ordering at the counter.

In the video, the women can be heard stating there are empty tables in the restaurant. When they wouldn’t leave, the manager called police.

The video has been viewed more than 200,000 times.

ABC7 reached out to Urth Caffe, which said it does have a policy that patrons must give up or share their table after 45 minutes when it’s busy.

The owner, Shallom Berkman, said there were people waiting in line that evening.

“Everybody wants an outside seat. We have this policy to make things fair and accommodate everyone who wants to enjoy Urth Cafe,” Berkman said.

But to make things clear, Berkman stated the women were not asked to leave because they are Muslim.

“My wife is Muslim and I’m Jewish. We like to say we’re a sign of world peace,” Berkman said.

But the outrage generated by Farsakh’s Facebook post prompted Yelp to block anyone from reviewing Urth Caffe so that people wouldn’t post their views on the news story.

Berkman said he’d like to offer Farsakh a meal on the house.

“We’re very sorry that she has this feeling that this was something racist, but that is just not the case,” Berkman said.

Farsakh did not want to comment on camera for ABC7’s story. She met with the Council on American Islamic Relations on Monday and they planned to issue a statement on her behalf Tuesday morning.


Terror group CAIR must have told the hijabi’s to wage jihad against the cafe…legal jihad. The plaintiffs did not say how much they are seeking in damages, but it could be millions.

American couple who joined Islamic State terror group killed in airstrike

An American couple who joined the Islamic State in Syria were killed in an airstrike over the weekend, depriving the terror army of one of its most conspicuous woman recruiters and propagandists.

Umm Issa Al-Amrikiah, who maintained her own social media channel, and her husband, Abu Issa Al-Amriki, were killed in a strike on their home, according to Islamic State posts on social media.

“Umm Issa Al-Amrikiah was one of the first and a leading American ISIS sympathizer to be very active on Telegram,” said Steve Stalinsky, executive director of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), using an acronym for the Islamic State.

Telegram is one of Islamic State’s favorite platforms. Created by an exile Russian tech entrepreneur, Telegram is encrypted against interception by the U.S. or anyone else. It offers secure messaging and media channels through which Islamic State followers and members can plan operations, recruit and view propaganda. Amrikiah had attracted over 1,000 followers on Telegram, considered a large number for a private platform devoted to killing people.

There are no available photos of the pair. But researchers believe they were American based on their messages, what other jihadis say about them on social media and on the fact their deaths were announced in various Islamic State-linked channels on Telegram.

For months she maintained active social media accounts and was trying to recruit Belgian Muslims a few days before the Islamic State, also known was ISIL, bombed the Brussels airport and subway train on March 22. After the slaughter of 32 innocents, Amrikiah justified the attack on social media.

The U.S. government said last year that about 250 Americans have attempted to joint Islamic State in Syria, with nearly 20 percent of them women.

Islamic State propagandist Omar Hussain, a former British grocery store security guard, instructed women interested in traveling to Syria, Islamic State’s homebase, to watch Amrikiah’s channel.

“She is a wife of a Mujahid who is also very active on da’wah [propaganda] and helping people in,” Hussain posted, according to a translation by MEMRI. “She is available for advice on hijrah [migration] as well as general information about Sham [Syria]. It is, however, advised that sisters from the West use multiple accounts prior [to] doing hijrah to delete their account they were using to msg the sister.”

Hussain was ordered offline by Islamic State higher-ups as punishment for saying on social media that it was too difficult to enter Syria through Turkey and that jihadis should travel to Libya instead.

Amrikiah and her husband’s deaths were announced on social media. The writer expressed hope the two are now in paradise.

“I confirmed it that brother Abu Isa Al Amriki and his wife Umm Isa Al Amrikiah were hit in their house by the airstrikes and they both attained shahadah [martyrdom] few days ago,” said one post. “May Allah grant both of them shahada and make them enter jannatal firdous [paradise]. He was a really helpful brother.”

Another female Islamic State member, Umm Sayyaf, held an online chat on April 10 with Amrikiah, who said she “can’t wait” to attain martyrdom.

“May we all die in dar al Islam Ameen [land of Islam],” she said.

Sadly, from the West’s standpoint, there are many American Muslim women willing to take her place by creating multiple media accounts and acting as an active recruiter and propagandist, Mr. Stalinsky said.


On April 23 we retweeted a separate post about two “American” jihadists reportedly killed in airstrikes in Yemen. It’s unclear who they were but if they were different from the two jihadis above, that would be four American jihadis taken out in the last week.

New York: ISIS-loving cabbie shouldn’t lose license for bomb threat, judge says

Source: ISIS-loving cabbie shouldn’t lose license for bomb threat, judge says | New York Post

A taxi driver accused of telling a passenger he had a bomb in his car, was thinking of joining ISIS and could have “done a better job” than the Paris terrorists, should be suspended for six months and fined $1,150, an administrative law judge has recommended.

Judge Kevin Casey refused to yank the license of cabbie Hisham Ahmed, as the Taxi & Limousine Commission had requested, after police said he posed “no threat” and after determining his volatile remarks were “out of character” in a 20-year career.hisham-ahmed-isis

Casey said Ahmed deserved a lesser punishment for scaring the daylights out of his passenger, an Australian businessman.

“The complaintant credibly testified that [Ahmed] repeatedly stated that he wanted to blow up the taxi cab,” the judge wrote in a March 16 decision.

“Those remarks were made late at night in the close confines of a taxi, less than two weeks after a horrific attack by terrorists in Paris.”

“[Ahmed] had already alluded to the Paris Attack and his desire to join ISIS,” he added. “Though the police later concluded that [Ahmed] did not pose a threat to the public, that finding did not diminish the distress endured by the complainant as he rode in the cab.”

Ahmed’s lawyer called the recommended penalty excessive.

“The police investigated Mr. Ahmed and found him to be no threat whatsoever,” said attorney Daniel Ackman.

He disputed the judge’s finding that Ahmed had made the remarks and said that even if he had, “the punishment for speaking is excessive.”

The allegedly terror-fueled cab ride began shortly before midnight, in late November, when the businessman hopped in Ahmed’s cab near Third Avenue and East 21st St.

Just two minutes into his ride to his midtown hotel, the businessman testified that Ahmed asked him about the Paris terror attacks.

The passenger recounted that he told Ahmed the attacks were “unfortunate or very upsetting.”

The cabbie responded, he said, by boasting he “could’ve done a better job.”

It was the first in a string of disturbing remarks Ahmed allegedly made during the short ride, including asking his fare how to get an “ISIS visa” and wondering repeatedly if he should “blow the taxi up tonight.”

The ride was a “terrifying” and “terrible” experience, the businessman told the judge, adding the incident “ruined the night” and turned what had been a great trip to New York into a “an absolute disappointment.”

The businessman, who was not identified, called the police and TLC shortly after arriving at his hotel on Lexington Avenue at 37th Street.

Ahmed, who has been a cab driver for two decades, testified that he had no recollection of the businessman or of the alleged incident, and had never told a passenger he wanted to join ISIS or
blow up his taxi.

The judge also found that Ahmed broke TLC rules by smoking in the cab that night.

The TLC doesn’t have to follow the judge’s recommendation.

Agency spokesman Allan Fromberg said TLC Commissioner Meera Joshi would make a decision early next month.

Oklahoma City Thunder Go Sharia with Islamic Halal Diet

Source: The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Halal Guys – WSJ

Enes Kanter has started a halal food craze that has absorbed the Thunder’s locker room after road games—and stocked it with lamb platters and chicken kebabs.

In the middle of every Oklahoma City road game, David Howarth’s phone buzzes in his pocket. The Thunder’s athletic performance coordinator excuses himself from the bench and escapes to the arena’s loading dock. That’s where he picks up the team’s dinner: takeout halal food.

This is not what most NBA teams eat after games. But the more adventurous Thunder players have done away with the traditional locker-room fare this season. Instead they’re digging into generous helpings of lamb and chicken kebabs.

The person responsible for Oklahoma City’s culinary revolution isn’t Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook or any other Thunder starter. It is Enes Kanter, the team’s reserve center, who is Muslim and observes his religion’s dietary laws.

Thunder executives took measures to accommodate Kanter’s religion when they traded for the Turkish-born big man last year and signed him to a long-term extension in the off-season. He has access to his own prayer room in the team’s arena, for example, and uses owner Clay Bennett’s office in the team’s practice center, where he uses towels as prayer rugs. The team also made sure that Kanter’s very first meal in Oklahoma City was cooked under halal standards, which means the meat was raised and slaughtered properly, and Thunder chefs started cooking for him with separate kitchenware.

But what happened next was something no one anticipated. The halal takeover started when Thunder center Steven Adams asked Kanter if he would share his post-game dinner. “Pretty much as soon as he came in,” Adams said, “I just told him that I’m eating his food, so I told the guys to order double.”

Westbrook and Serge Ibaka then began tearing into the halal trays. Before long, Thunder officials were searching the Internet for the top-rated Turkish and Middle Eastern restaurants in other cities when the team was on the road, all so they could feed a full lineup of NBA players with enormous appetites.

“It’s like a mini-party,” said Thunder medical director Donnie Strack. “Everyone wants to steal Enes’s food.”

Kanter eats halal because of his religion. Adams eats halal for a slightly different reason.

“Because it’s awesome,” he said.

Now, after Kanter’s first full season in Oklahoma City, the team has a rotation of halal restaurants in NBA cities—and their players have become food critics.

“What’s our best city?” Adams said. “Orlando?”

“Boston?” Kanter said.

“Boston was good, wasn’t it?” Adams said. “Boston was the best city. I don’t know the top five, but Boston was definitely No. 1.”

They say there is a science to halal quality: The bigger the city, the better the food. The Thunder happened to be in Brooklyn this year when the Northeast was blanketed in several feet of snow, but that didn’t stop Kanter from leaving the Thunder’s hotel in search of the borough’s standout Turkish food. That week, when the Thunder played the New York Knicks, the full team meal was a Turkish feast. Outside their Madison Square Garden locker room were tables of halal food. “Everyone’s starting to jump on board,” Adams said, “just because it tastes so good.”

But not quite everyone. Durant is the Thunder’s highest-profile halal holdout. While others peek at Kanter’s plate, Durant sticks with staples of the NBA diet, which tends to be heavy on grilled chicken and, for the Thunder, brisket and short rib. Durant still knows all about the halal situation.

“I think it’s bull—,” he joked after a recent practice. “I’ve been here for nine years and I requested some stuff after the game and I have to pay for it on my own. And the second he gets here he gets his own menu.” Durant’s faux-outrage, however, may come from his personal taste for the food: “It’s nasty to me,” he said.


Durant may have it right. Do his teammates know what makes the food halal? Shouting allah akbar while slicing the neck and letting the animal bleed to death (just as they do to non-Muslims and apostates).

Florida: Muslim arrested in jihad sting on Aventura synagogue

Another convert arrested in a sting. via: Sources: FBI foils terror attack at Aventura synagogue; 1 arrest – WSVN-TV – 7NEWS Miami Ft. Lauderdale News, Weather, Deco

AVENTURA, Fla. (WSVN) — Federal agents arrested a man who, sources said, was planning to throw an explosive device into a South Florida synagogue.

According to law enforcement sources, the FBI set up a sting to thwart what they described as a terror attack at the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center, Friday evening.

Sources said agents posing as terrorists were able to stop James Medina, the man, who, they said, may have converted to Islam.

Sources told 7News they are concerned about this case because Medina wanted to take some type of explosive device and chuck it over the wall. Friday was the next-to-last day of Passover, and the center was crowded with people observing the holiday.

Concerned residents said they were disturbed by the arrest. “I think about, before we had a baby, that we used to go there for services, and God forbid, it could have been us,” said Stephanie Levine. “Thank God they stopped him, but had they not, it would have been such a horrible thing to happen to this neighborhood.”

The Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center released a statement in the wake of the terror threats: “The leadership of our congregation has been briefed by law enforcement and Jewish community security officials about this situation. They assured us that the synagogue and school were never at risk at any time during the investigation and arrest, and that there are no credible threats directed against us at the present time.”

Sources said the center was never in danger because Medina was taken into custody before any harm was done.

“Of course it surprised me,” said area resident Richard Levinson. “Everybody says, ‘I live in a small town. It doesn’t happen here,’ but the sad part is, it happens everywhere.”

Resident Kim Tepper said she is horrified by the turn of events but ultimately not that surprised. “It’s a very scary world, and you know what? I don’t think that anybody is safe anywhere,” she said. ‘We’d always thought, living in this area, that we could be targeted, so now you’re kind of confirming that for me. Not happy.”

Florida Representative Debbie Wassedrman Schultz stated how grateful she is that the individual was caught by the FBI. “I am deeply grateful that the FBI arrested this individual before he was allegedly able to do harm to the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center and its congregates,” said Schultz. “I will be in contact with federal and local authorities immediately and working with them to ensure our community’s places of worship — no matter what faith — are safe for all those who worship in them.”

FBI officials declined to comment on the investigation, but 7News has learned Medina will appear in federal court early this week.


DOJ: Medina Complaint

Survey of Canadian Muslims Reveals Major Concerns

Source: Blog: Survey of Canadian Muslims reveals major concerns

Far from being benign, or even positive, as some commentators in the liberal media claim, a new survey of Canadian Muslims should give many pause for thought.

Keep in mind that there are already more than one million Muslims in Canada, and their rate of population growth is doubling every 10 years, meaning that — if century-long trends continue — Canada will be a majority Muslim nation by 2050. Since the last census of the Muslim population was in 2011, the current number is likely in the neighborhood of 1.5 million, or more than 4% of the total population.

It is clear that Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party of Canada is the political home for Muslims. Among those surveyed, 65% said they voted for Trudeau, versus 10% voting for the far left NDP and 2% for the Conservatives. Since 21% of respondents refused to answer how they voted, if we normalize the voting preferences among those answering the question, then almost 85% of Muslims voted Liberal.

A majority (50%) of Muslims said being a Muslim was the most important part of their personal identity, far more than the percentage saying that being a Canadian was most important (15%). For non-Muslims in Canada, the loyalty is reversed — with 43% of non-Muslims stating that being Canadian is most important versus their religious following (28%).

Another majority (52%) of the Canadian Muslim population say they are worried about violent extremism among their ranks, a percentage that is effectively unchanged from 2006. Conversely, only 40% say they are either not worried or only a little worried about the radicalization of their community.

When asked whether they want to adopt Canadian customs or remain distinct, just 53% of Muslims indicated they wanted to adopt Canadian customs, meaning the remaining 47% do not clearly want to adopt Canadian customs. The number saying they want to adopt Canadian customs has declined from 55% to 53% over the past decade, showing a trend away from assimilation.

A full 75% of Canadian Muslims believe they should have the right to pray in public schools, which violates the separation of church and state and also leads to large costs for renovations as these public facilities are forced to accommodate the corresponding demands for space and facilities. For example, the University of Regina recently spent $35,000 in scarce public funding to install foot-washing stations for Muslim students.

When asked whether they agree or disagree with the statement that “[t]he father in the family must be master in his own house,” 40% of Canadian Muslims agreed and only 32% totally disagreed. By comparison, among non-Muslims in Canada, just 21% agree with the view of a patriarchy.

Nearly half (43%) of Muslims feel that homosexuality should not be accepted by society, and just 36% say it should be accepted.

Around 7% of Canadian Muslims feel that at least some, and perhaps most/many, Muslims in their community support violent extremists abroad. Given the large domestic population of Muslims, these numbers should cause alarm.

An Oral History of the Muslim Brotherhood in America, in Their Own Words

Source: Center for Security Policy | BOOK RELEASE: Ikhwan in America: An Oral History of the Muslim Brotherhood in Their Own Words

(Washington, D.C.): The Center for Security Policy is proud to announce the second release in its Archival Series, Ikhwan in America: An Oral History of the Muslim Brotherhood in their Own Words.

Like the first volume in this series, The Explanatory Memorandum: From the Archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in America, this new volume provides context for the needed, far deeper understanding of the true nature of the Muslim Brotherhood (known as the Ikhwan in Arabic). It does so by making accessible an original source document – along with an evaluation of its ideological, historical and organizational significance to equip our countrymen and women, and their elected representatives, to make informed decisions about one of the most serious threats facing our country: the Islamic supremacist enemies within.

“Ikhwan in America” was the title given an early 1980s lecture about the Muslim Brotherhood by a man who was at the time one of the organization’s most prominent leaders: the chief masul (“guide”) of its executive office, Zaid Naman (a.k.a. Zeid Noman). The audience were participants in a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood camp in Missouri.

The Center for Security Policy is proud to present this monograph as the latest in its Muslim Brotherhood Archival Series. Ikhwan in America is available for purchase in Kindle and paperback format at Amazon.com. As with this Archive Series’ Explanatory Memorandum, this one can also be downloaded for free at www.SecureFreedom.org.

A PDF of the newly released monograph is embedded here:
