A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media’s attacks against the U.S. government’s no-fly list for “unfairly” targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison — arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell.

It’s a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long’s cause was being championed by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.

His story got considerable media attention when his CAIR media representatives here pushed the story that Long wanted to return to his native Oklahoma from his current home in Qatar to visit his ailing mother but couldn’t because he was on the TSA’s no-fly list. They said his case represented institutional “Islamophobia.”

Long’s cause got international attention when Glenn Greenwald published an article at The Guardian saying that Long was “effectively exiled from his own country.” Kevin Drum of Mother Jones branded it the “Kafkaesque World of the No-Fly List.” CAIR has 22 article entries related to Long’s case on its website.

After several months of wrangling between his CAIR attorneys and the Department of Homeland Security, Long was temporarily removed from the no-fly list and allowed to return to Oklahoma.

Once home, however, he was still subject to FBI surveillance according to claims he made during a press conference with his CAIR handlers.

After an incident with local police and the FBI, Long was apparently placed back on the no-fly list, preventing his return to Qatar.

That prompted even more outrage from the far-Left media and garnered him an appearance with his CAIR handler on Chris Hayes’ MSNBC show:

Glenn Greenwald used Saadiq Long’s MSNBC appearance to get back in on the action:

Eventually, Long boarded a bus to Mexico and got on a flight there to return home to Qatar.

U.S. and Turkish officials confirmed Long’s arrest to PJ Media, saying that he was arrested along with eight others operating along the Turkish-Syrian border. So far, no U.S. media outlet has reported on his arrest.

Long’s Facebook page has not been updated for several months. The last entry on his wife’s Facebook page was October 23.

I have emailed Long’s CAIR handler, Adam Soltani, asking for comment. An email to his attorney Gadeir Abbas was returned as undeliverable.

California school district enforces sharia, bans drawings of Muhammad, keeps Islamic indoctrination

To not offend Muslims, students are forbidden from drawing figures that represent their own religions. Yet, they are still forced to endure Islamic indoctrination. This is the epitome of dhimmitude, intolerance and Islamophobia. Students and parents are witnessing the rise of Islam and the demise of Western civilization in real-time.

via School district bans drawings of religious leaders after Acton students draw Muhammad

An Acton school district superintendent said Wednesday he has banned depicting religious leaders after middle school students drew images on a history worksheet of Muhammad, which is forbidden in Islam.

Following a parent’s complaint and media inquiries, Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District Superintendent Brent Woodard told a reporter Tuesday he would consult with an expert on Islam to determine whether a vocabulary handout given to a 7th-grade history class at High Desert School in Acton was offensive. The worksheet, Vocabulary Pictures: The Rise of Islam, listed words such as Quran, Mecca, Bedouins and Muhammad with spaces for students to draw pictures or images related to those words.

“I have directed all staff to permanently suspend the practice of drawing or depiction of any religious leader,” Woodard said Wednesday afternoon in a text message. “I am certain this teacher did not intend to offend anyone and in fact was simply teaching respect and tolerance for all cultures.”

Palmdale resident Melinda Van Stone said she was “very upset” when her 12-year-old son brought home the assignment about two weeks ago.

“It’s not appropriate to have our children go to school and learn how to insult a religious group,” said Van Stone, a chiropractor who declined to state her or her son’s religion.

Van Stone said the principal and district officials told her that the worksheet came from state-approved curriculum. But on Tuesday, High Desert School Principal Lynn David said the vocabulary worksheet is not a part of a textbook or other state-approved curriculum but is supplemental material.

The principal, who joined the school in July, said she did not know if the teacher had created the worksheet himself or from where he had it gotten it.

The boy has been sent to the office and is given an alternative assignment during class discussions on Islam, which Van Stone agreed to but now feels is unnecessary. Van Stone said David told her that she needs to write down which state standards she objects to before the boy can be back in class full time. The mother, who said her son has been sent to the office about six times, said she feels like he is being punished for her complaints.

In Islam, images of prophets, whether of Muhammad, Jesus or Moses, are not allowed since people may worship these images, which is forbidden, said Muzammil Siddiqi, an Islamic scholar and chairman of the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California.

Bill Filed in Congress to Designate Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Group


If it gets that far, will Obama veto it? via Congress Moves to Label Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Group – Washington Free Beacon

Lawmakers in both houses of Congress filed legislation on Tuesday that would formally designate the Muslim Brotherhood a sanctioned terrorist organization, according to an advance copy of the legislation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The legislation outlines the Brotherhood’s long history of sponsoring terrorism and outlines congressional support for it to be designated a global terrorist outfit. The bill also would force Secretary of State John Kerry to explain why the Obama administration has been hesitant to label the Brotherhood a terrorist group.

The Brotherhood’s political wing has been banned in Egypt, where affiliates of the organization overthrew the government and then violently cracked down on its opposition, the United States has avoided labeling the organization a sponsor of terrorism.

Should the State Department refuse to move forward with the designation, the bill would require it to provide a justification for this policy, according to the bill.

Multiple House lawmakers spearheaded a similar effort last year, but the bill failed to become law.

This time around, Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) is heading the legislation in the Senate, while Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R., Fla.) is handling the House version of the bill, sources said.

“We have to stop pretending that the Brotherhood are not responsible for the terrorism they advocate and finance,” Cruz told the Free Beacon. “We have to see it for what it is: a key international organization dedicated to waging violent jihad.  Since the Obama administration refuses to utter the words’”radical Islamic terrorism,’ and Congress owes it to the American people to tell them the truth about this threat.”

The bill also helps combat the notion that Brotherhood is a peaceful political group, Cruz said.

“This bill puts the lie to the notion that the Muslim Brotherhood is a peaceful political organization that can be a legitimate partner for America,” the lawmaker said. “In 2008 the Justice Department successfully prosecuted the largest terrorism-financing trial in American history arguing that the Muslim Brotherhood directed U.S. affiliates such as the Holy Land Foundation to provide ‘media, money and men’ to Hamas. That support was used for terrorist attacks against Americans and our allies in the Middle East.  When they are capable they will try to do the same thing here.”

The bill, which includes a lengthy history of the Brotherhood’s links to radical terrorist leaders and violent incidents, concludes that “the Muslim Brotherhood meets the criteria for designation as a foreign terrorist organization.”

It would require the State Department and other agencies to determine whether the Brotherhood officially meets the requirements to be designated under U.S. law as a terrorist organization.

However, “if the Secretary of State determines that the Muslim Brotherhood does not meet the criteria,” it must submit to Congress “a detailed justification as to which criteria have not been met,” according to the bill.

Muslim Brotherhood affiliates as well as the group’s members have been listed as sponsors of terrorism in the past by the U.S. government.

The terrorist group Hamas, a longtime Brotherhood affiliate, has been sanctioned for some time.

The organization garnered international headlines after its rise to power following a coup in Egypt that took down its longtime former leader. While in power, the Brotherhood cracked down on opponents and waged violent campaigns against Christians and others who opposed the group’s radical ideology.

Five countries—Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Russia—already consider the Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

Israel, Canada, and the United Kingdom are examining the possibility of designating it a terrorist organization as well.

A senior member of the Brotherhood was hosted at the White House last year, while other representatives of the group have been granted entrance to the United States.

Senior U.S. officials have warned in the past that the Brotherhood both in the United States and overseas have backed terrorist acts.

“I can say at the outset that elements of the Muslim Brotherhood both here and overseas have supported terrorism,” said Robert Mueller, the former director of the FBI, during testimony in 2011.

Intelligence officials have established that elements of the Brotherhood run terrorist financing operations in the United States. Much of this information, however, remains classified.

Other officials have explained that terror groups such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and al Qaeda can all trace their roots back to the Muslim Brotherhood and its leaders.

Kredo curiously makes no mention of the most notorious Muslim Brotherhood groups in America including CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and the MSA (Muslim Student Association).


Minnesota: Township sued for rejecting Muslims-only cemetery

Terror-linked, named-terror group CAIR should be banned and their leadership jailed or deported – instead, they work hand-in-hand with the corrupt leaders in the DOJ. Litigation and zoning jihad. via Dakota County township sued over rejection of Islamic cemetery – TwinCities.com

Dakota Gardens was supposed to be a cemetery exclusively for Muslims, serving the needs of the local religious community for the next 200 years.

Planned for rural southern Dakota County, the cemetery called for about two burials each week on 70 acres of land in Castle Rock Township — a farming community with a population of 1,500 located southeast of Lakeville and Farmington.

“Everything about it will be simple, quiet and peaceful,” plans submitted to the township read. “(It) will provide the final destination for a minority group in a dominant society.”

Township officials, however, weren’t on board.

In August 2014, the board rejected a land-use application submitted by the original property owner and later denied a request for an appeal of the decision.

Now, more than a year later, local Muslim leaders are urging federal authorities to investigate whether the rejection of the conditional-use permit constitutes religious discrimination.

The state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said it plans to ask the U.S. Department of Justice next week to look into whether the land-use denial by the township board constitutes a violation of the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act.

Enacted by Congress in 2000, the act protects religious institutions from unduly burdensome or discriminatory land-use regulations.

“It is truly a sad day when Minnesota Muslims are denied their final resting place simply because of their faith,” Jaylani Hussein, executive director of CAIR-MN, said in a statement this week.

Castle Rock Township officials declined to comment on the issue this week, citing the ongoing legal action.

The probe request follows a lawsuit filed in July in Dakota County District Court by the Al Maghfirah Cemetery Association — a state nonprofit corporation — against the township and its board of supervisors.

The suit seeks a declaratory judgment, asking a judge to find that the board’s denial was “arbitrary and capricious” and direct the board to issue the conditional-use permit for the site, located at 1120 220th St.

The lawsuit also alleges the board violated the state’s open meeting law.

The township denies the allegations in court documents and has asked the court to dismiss the case; a hearing is scheduled for Tuesday at the Dakota County Courthouse in Hastings.

In making his case against the land-use application, board supervisor Russ Zellmer voiced his concern over the loss of tax base to the township if the cemetery were to be approved, according to minutes from the Aug. 11 meeting.

“Russ also has concerns that this large of a parcel might not be maintained properly, since the application indicates they will only develop a small portion at a time,” the meeting minutes read. “He feels that it is discriminatory that if the facility is approved it would not be open to the public for burials.”

Meanwhile, then-board chairman Drea Doffing said he believed the cemetery would be “incompatible with the current and surrounding uses,” the minutes read.

The property owner later sold the land to the Al Maghfirah Cemetery Association, which then submitted its own application for an Islamic cemetery for the property.

But the township board decided against reviewing the application, contending that an application had already been submitted and denied, according to the lawsuit. The cemetery association appealed that decision and the board also denied that appeal.

According to CAIR-MN, the township board has since changed the zoning ordinance so that cemeteries are no longer a permitted use in the zoning area where the land is located.

“The public hearing during which it appears that the board removed cemeteries as a conditional use lasted only seven minutes,” CAIR-MN wrote in its statement.

Meanwhile, denials of mosque construction applications are on the radar of federal officials both locally and nationally.

In a local case, the U.S. government sued the city of St. Anthony in August 2014 for alleged religious discrimination over its rejection of a proposed Islamic center in 2012.

A settlement agreement reached in December called for the city to allow an Islamic group to use a portion of a building the group owns for worship and other religious activities. The city denied discrimination claims, saying the decision was based solely on land use and zoning restrictions.

Last month, the Rosemount City Council approved the rezoning of property and granted a conditional-use permit for the Muslim American Society of Minnesota, which plans to operate a mosque and community center at the site of the former City Limits Lanes building.

Minnesota already has two cemeteries exclusively for Muslims — one each in Roseville and Burnsville — but they are nearing capacity, said Hussein, the executive director of CAIR-MN.

“Exclusionary cemeteries are not unique to Muslims,” he said Friday. “There’s a human rights law in Minnesota — a statute — that accepts and supports exclusionary burials.”

When Muslims are excluded they whine and file lawsuits. When Muslims are prevented from excluding others they whine and file lawsuits. Islam is incompatible with liberty, particularly individual liberty.



Oklahoma: Hamas front group will have float in Tulsa’s Veterans Day Parade

Terror-linked Muslim group CAIR that fought for sharia law in Oklahoma will now have a float in a parade honoring veterans whom they despise. Stealth jihad – or as the Muslim Brotherhood calls it “civilization jihad” – at its finest. WhosFundingCAIRc

via Tulsa’s Veterans Day Parade participant calls Muslim group’s involvement ‘atrocious’ – Tulsa World: Religion

The Oklahoma Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has a float, and a member of conservative organization Tulsa 912 Project said it is “atrocious” to ask veterans to “march alongside people who represent our enemies in a current war.”

For the first time, Oklahoma Muslims will have a float in the Veterans Day Parade in downtown Tulsa on Nov. 11, and not all parade participants are happy about it.

“It’s something we have been wanting to do for years,” said Adam Soltani, executive director of the Oklahoma Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, based in Oklahoma City.

Soltani said the float is sponsored by CAIR-Oklahoma but will “represent the Oklahoma Muslim community, which is a very diverse community of people from all walks of life, immigrants, indigenous people.”

“We support all veterans, and we support our country, so I don’t see why anyone should have any concerns about CAIR being involved,” he said.

“We are an American Muslim organization, and American Muslims support their government, support their country and definitely support our troops who are working to defend our constitutional rights and our freedoms,” he continued.

Soltani said many U.S. Muslims have served in the armed forces and that two veterans are on the CAIR-Oklahoma board.

Larry Williamson, a member of the Tulsa 912 Project, a conservative organization, said it is “atrocious” to ask veterans to “march alongside people who represent our enemies in a current war.”

“I believe all American entrants who the parade is intended to honor should be made aware as soon as possible that they are being asked to share their honor with the Muslim Brotherhood, sworn enemy of the United States and our ally Israel and an enemy in our current war on the Islamic jihad in which American soldiers are fighting and dying,” he said in a letter to the Tulsa World.

Williamson said he has been told that his Tulsa 912 Project float is scheduled to be in line next to the CAIR float in the parade.

“I’m not a spokesman for Tulsa 912, but I won’t march alongside the Muslim Brotherhood,” he said.

Asked why he uses the term Muslim Brotherhood instead of CAIR, Williamson said the FBI has identified CAIR as an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America. CAIR has consistently stated that it has no connections with any terrorist groups.

Patsy Varnell, vice president of the Tulsa Veterans Day Parade Association, confirmed that CAIR-Oklahoma’s application to be in the parade has been accepted.

“The parade is nonreligious,” she said.

“We feel that we are exercising the rights established by the Constitution of freedom of speech, and this group has the right to participate. We do not want any problems, but we have to be fair to everybody,” Varnell said.

Ronda Vuillemont-Smith, president and founder of the Tulsa 912 Project, said the group is not asking that CAIR be removed from the parade but that parade organizers “be honest and open and let people know that they are in.”

“My concern is that the parade committee was trying to keep this information out of the public eye,” she said.

For the lazy, Federal judge confirms CAIR is Hamas.

WASHINGTON – A federal judge has determined that the Justice Department provided “ample evidence” to designate the most prominent Muslim group in America as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator.

According to a federal court ruling unsealed Friday, the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations has been involved in “a conspiracy to support Hamas,” a federally designated terrorist group that has murdered at least 17 Americans and injured more than 100 U.S. citizens.

The 20-page order, signed by U.S. District Judge Jorge A. Solis, cites “ample evidence” that CAIR participated in a “criminal conspiracy” led by the Holy Land Foundation, Hamas’s main fundraising arm in the U.S. As a result, the judge refused CAIR’s request to strike its name from documents listing it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the case.

“The four pieces of evidence the government relies on do create at least a prima facie case as to CAIR’s involvement in a conspiracy to support Hamas,” Solis wrote in his July 2009 ruling.

Also known as legal jihad or litigation jihad. via Center for Security Policy | BOOK RELEASE: Offensive and Defensive Lawfare: Fighting Civilization Jihad in America’s Courts


In Offensive and Defensive Lawfare: Fighting Civilization Jihad in America’s Courts, David Yerushalmi, Esq., Director of the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) and General Counsel for the Center for Security Policy, and AFLC co-founder Robert J. Muise, Esq. describe the use by our Islamic supremacist enemies of U.S. jurisprudence to compel submission to the doctrine they call shariah. As with so many other facets of the Muslim Brotherhood’s stealthy, pre-violent jihad against this country, most of us are unaware that such lawfare is taking place, let alone with such deleterious effects.

Even more importantly, Messrs. Yerushalmi and Muise lay out their recommendations for an offensive strategy to defend the U.S. Constitution and the rights it guarantees our countrymen and women from any further encroachment by Islamic law. In stark contrast to the longstanding use of such techniques to intimidate or suppress freedom-loving peoples, offensive lawfare against the Brotherhood and its ilk is a relatively nascent area of the law, in which the authors are true pioneers and formidable innovators.

New Jersey: Terror-linked CAIR demands Sheriff withdraw from terror training seminar


Islamo-bullies. via: FFA – CAIR demands that Sheriff withdraw law enforcement academy from terror training seminar.

The Council on American Islamic Relations sent out the following news release in part:

CAIR Asks NJ Sheriff to Reject Training by Islamophobe

(SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ, 10/27/15) – The New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NJ) today announced that it has asked a sheriff in that state to disassociate his department from a November 2 training program featuring notorious Islamophobe Walid Shoebat.

[NOTE: CAIR-NJ sent similar requests to other local law enforcement agencies asking that officers not be reimbursed for the cost of Shoebat’s training or be allowed to take the training during working hours.]

CAIR Islamophobia Monitor: Walid Shoebat

CAIR says the training event, “Know Your Enemy,” is offered “for law enforcement only” by Courses Offering Police Specialization (C.O.P.S.) and is being advertised with Ocean County Police Academy contact information.

SEE: ‘Know Your Enemy’ Screen Shot

The academy is operated by the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office in Toms River, N.J. A number of those associated with C.O.P.S. are also employed by local law enforcement agencies.

In a letter to Sheriff Michael G. Mastronardy, CAIR-NJ Executive Director James R. Sues wrote in part:

“I respectfully request that your academy publicly disassociate itself from this event and that no in service training credit should be offered to any New Jersey law enforcement personnel who attend the event on their own time.

“Shoebat is perhaps the nation’s most notorious Islamophobe….

Is there any counter terrorism training seminar that CAIR would support or not have a problem with?

Sheriff Mastronardy currently serves as the Second Vice President of the Sheriff’s Association of New Jersey (SANJ.) He is past president of the Ocean County Association of Chiefs of Police and the New Jersey State Chiefs of Police Association.

It is most troubling that the Council on American Islamic Relations is attempting to bully Sheriff Mastronardy and other law enforcement agencies to withdraw from a seminar that will provide valuable information to law enforcement to protect the public.   It is truly ironic that CAIR is so aggressively challenging the Ocean County Police Academy seminar given CAIR’s history and agenda:
