Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund has made an iconic purchase in America — a stake in the company that owns New York’s Empire State Building.

The $622-million purchase by the Qatar Investment Authority comes as the Doha fund increases its investments in the US as the small country on the Arabian Peninsula tries to cope with low global oil and gas prices.

The Empire State Realty Trust Inc., which manages the 102-story, 1,454-foot-tall building, announced the Qatari purchase late Tuesday, saying the fund would gain a 9.9-percent stake in the company. The trust owns a total of 14 office properties and six retail properties around the New York area.

The Qatar Investment Authority did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

The pointed top of the Art Deco-style Empire State Building, once the tallest structure in the world, still stands out in New York’s famed skyline. It remains a major tourist attraction and has been the centerpiece of major American films from “King Kong” to “Sleepless in Seattle.”

The nation’s investment authority, estimated to be worth some $335 billion by the Las Vegas-based Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute, has been increasingly eyeing opportunities in the US. Last September, it announced plans to open an office in New York and committed to investing $35 billion in the U.S. over the next five years.

The fund’s existing American holdings include a more than 10-percent stake in New York-based luxury jeweler Tiffany & Co. It sold its share of the American film studio Miramax to Qatar-based media group beIN in March for an undisclosed sum.

Government-backed Qatar Airways, meanwhile, has been rapidly expanding its operations in the US, provoking a backlash from American carriers.

Also among the Qatari fund’s interests in America is a 44-percent stake in the $8.6 billion redevelopment project in New York known as Manhattan West, which includes remodeling the building that’s now home to the global headquarters of The Associated Press. The AP announced in August 2015 it planned to move from that building to another near the World Trade Center.


h/t Atlas Shrugs who reminds readers: Terror State Qatar Buys Chunk of Empire State Building

Qatar is arguably the preeminent sponsor of terror in the world today. It is a benefactor of the genocidal armies of ISIS, al Qaeda, and Boko Haram; it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell; and profits from operating a virtual slave state. Qatar is involved in terror operations from Nigeria to Gaza to Syria to Iraq.

 

30,000+ illegals from countries of “terrorist concern” crossed SW border into U.S. in 2015

And those are just the ones who were caught.

Illegals_Muslims_1Source: Military Intel Confirms JW Reporting: Muslim Terrorists Entering U.S. Via Mexico – Judicial Watch

Corroborating what Judicial Watch uncovered years ago, a U.S. military intelligence report discloses that Muslim terrorists are being smuggled into the country through Mexico. The government calls them Special Interest Aliens (SIA) and Latin American smuggling networks are helping them cross the border, according to information obtained from a U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) Intelligence dispatch.

Located in Miami, Florida SOUTHCOM is one of nine unified combat commands in the Department of Defense (DOD). It’s responsible for providing contingency planning operations and security cooperation in Central and South America as well as the Caribbean. The internal assessment on SIA smuggling has not been made public, but a conservative Washington D.C. online newspaper obtained key points from the command’s J-2 intelligence directorate. A SOUTHCOM Army colonel told the paper that in 2015 more than 30,000 migrants who entered the U.S. through the southwestern border were from countries of “terrorist concern.”

The new SOUTHCOM report specifically mentions Sunni extremists, the news article states. The terrorists are using a known alien smuggling network in Latin America to reach the U.S. but the network has not been identified by military officials. “Networks that specialize in smuggling individuals from regions of terrorist concern, mainly from the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, the Middle East, and East Africa, are indeed a concern for SOUTHCOM and other interagency security partners who support our country’s national security,” a SOUTHCOM Army Colonel, Lisa A. Garcia, says in the story. “There are major hubs that serve as entry points into the region for migrants from those areas of concern attempting to enter the U.S. along our border with Mexico.”

Minneapolis: Muslim joined ISIS within weeks of receiving $91K bridge collapse settlement

Mohamed Amiin Ali Roble

Yesterday you learned about the Muslim refugee in Maine who collected welfare for four years while training for jihad.

Today, more details on information we shared with readers back in May on the Somali Muslim who survived 2007 Minneapolis bridge collapse now in Syria fighting with ISIS.

Source: Minneapolis bridge collapse survivor faces terror charge – WSMV Channel 4

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A survivor of the 2007 Minneapolis bridge collapse that killed 13 people now faces terror charges after authorities say he traveled to Syria to join the Islamic State group, departing the U.S. just a few weeks after collecting more than $91,000 in settlement money for his injuries.

Mohamed Amiin Ali Roble, 20, was charged Wednesday with providing and conspiring to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

He was weeks shy of his 11th birthday when the school bus he was riding in plummeted about 30 feet as the bridge collapsed. Roble, one of 145 people who were hurt, received the settlement funds on his 18th birthday.

Roble’s name first surfaced in May during the federal trial of three Minnesota men who were convicted of conspiring to join the Islamic State group. The bridge collapse wasn’t mentioned at trial, but The Associated Press made the connection using public records.

Working phone numbers and current addresses for Roble’s family members were not available and they could not be reached for comment.

Court documents filed Wednesday show Roble received three court settlements when he turned 18 that totaled $91,654. That money included a $65,431 payment from the state’s settlement fund.

According to evidence presented in federal court in May, Roble flew to Istanbul in October 2014 as part of an itinerary that included a trip to China. He was due to return to the U.S. in June 2015, but never did, FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force Officer Joel Pajak testified.

“We received information that Mr. Roble ended up in Syria with his uncle, Abdi Nur,” Pajak testified.

The FBI affidavit says Roble withdrew more than $47,000 from his accounts over three months in 2014 while he was in Turkey.

“This large sum is consistent with previously mentioned CHS reports that Roble was financially supporting himself and other members of ISIL, including by purchasing vehicles to be used by members of ISIL,” the affidavit said. The “CHS” was a confidential informant working for the government. Continue reading

Canada: Muslim steals plane, crashes into mall … not terror-related

Run along. Nothing to see here.

Source: RCMP confirm Peterborough plane crash was subject of national security investigation | Globalnews.ca

A day after Global News reported the RCMP was investigating national security aspects related to the stolen plane that crashed in Peterborough, Ont. last week, the RCMP has confirmed its national security enforcement unit was involved in the investigation.

The national police force also said it found no threat to national security, no motive for the theft and declined to provide an explanation as to how a 20-year-old Markham man with mental health issues who “acted alone,” managed to steal the plane undetected and crash it in a major Ontario city.

Mohammad Hassan Chaudhary of Markham, Ont. was killed after the small Piper Tomahawk aircraft he allegedly stole from the Markham Airport smashed into the ground just before 1:30 a.m. Aug. 12 near the Landsdowne Place mall. Chaudhary’s father told Global News his son lived with schizophrenia and other mental health issues.

The RCMP released a statement Friday afternoon that said the three police services had been “working together” to investigate the crash and confirmed the Ontario RCMP Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) had been involved in the investigation.

A source close to the investigation told Global News something was found in the wreckage that concerned police, while the owners of the stolen Piper Tomahawk said their plane was full of fuel and was capable of flying up to five hours.

An airport operator said that the pilot would have to know something about aeronautics to take off and fly 100 kilometres, though Chaudhary’s father said that his son didn’t have a “single minute” of flight training.

It’s also apparent that the RCMP’s story changed when people starting discussing it. Watch as I take you through why this doesn’t add up.

Georgia: 135-Acre Mega Mosque Complex Called Itself a “Church”…To Fool Citizens?

…or to fool the city? For years mosque-building Muslims have been waging a zoning jihad – breaking, violating and outright ignoring zoning laws across the U.S. With absolutely zero consequences. In fact, Obama’s DOJ has acted as mosque enforcer.

“…I will leave it up to people in the community to decide for themselves why it was called the Avery Community Church and Cemetery until last week~ District 1 Commissioner John Douglas

Source: Newton County Residents Voice Fears At Mosque Meeting | WABE 90.1 FM

Hundreds were at a Monday night meeting in Newton County about a proposed Muslim worship center and burial facility there.

The historic Covington Courthouse was packed for two back-to-back meetings.

Most were opposed to the purchase of 135 acres along Highway 162 by a mostly Bangladeshi mosque based in Doraville.

When Newton County resident Edmond Hall took to the podium he called the people gathered the “silent majority.”

Then he spoke about the proposed facility.

“I don’t want these people and these teachings in our community. Were we not watching our TV on Sept. 11, 2001. Have we lost our mind? Have we lost our common sense here?” said Hall.

Many people said they were scared the new mosque would lead to attacks similar to recent mass shootings in Paris and Orlando, Florida.

A few people in support of the proposed Muslim facility called the comparison to mass attacks “hateful.”

“When I heard that there is a mosque built there I was excited,” said Zouhir Fakir, a Muslim who’s lived in Newton County for eight years, “something nice, you feel like you belong here. There is a place where you can go worship and maybe meet other Muslims and stuff. But then when I heard the reaction from other people I was surprised.”

The Doraville mosque already has an administrative permit for the 135 acres it owns. But last week, the county commission instituted a five week moratorium on building any new religious facilities.

Civil rights groups have threatened a lawsuit against the county for religious discrimination.

Imam Mohammad Islam, the leader of the Doraville mosque that purchased the property in Newton County, was not at the public meeting Monday night.

Edward Ahmed Mitchell, executive director of the Georgia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), has been working closely with Islam following response to the proposal for the new facility.

Mitchell said the Doraville mosque received advice “it would be better and safer” for Muslims not to attend the meeting.

“We think it would safer to let the crowd there say what they want in that environment, and then let church and community leaders meet privately with the leadership of the mosque to ask any questions they have and to dialogue in a safe and protected environment,” said Mitchell.

Georgia CAIR and the Georgia branch of the NAACP were scheduled to hold a press conference Tuesday regarding their request that the U.S. Department of Justice Investigate Newton County over the moratorium.


New reader’s should be alerted to the fact that CAIR is a terrorist front group listed as an Islamic terror organization in the UAE.

The back story and how the mosque mislead or kept the project a secret from citizens, via Newton Commissioners put mosque, places of worship on hold

The five-week moratorium, proposed by District 1 Commissioner John Douglas, in whose district the mosque would be built, was designed to give the county’s planning staff time to review zoning provisions and the current trend toward “campus-style, multi-service facilities” for places of worship. The county’s current zoning ordinance allows places of worship in all zoning categories in the county, provided the project meets minimum requirements of the ordinance.

Douglas told commissioners that the moratorium is in line with his previous opposition to “excessive development in the first district.” Douglas said he had opposed development of 1,500 houses in Stanton Springs, opposed the higher-density Autumn Trace subdivision on U.S. Highway 278, opposed expansion of a trucking terminal at the Hub Junction and delayed a decision on development of a regional ag center until a public meeting was held to answer neighbors’ questions.

“I have made it a point to work to keep the first district mostly rural and small town because the people who live in east and south Newton came here for that reason,” said Douglas. “There they love the quality of life we have in that area, the low crime rate, the lack of congestion and traffic and the ability just to get away from the big city when they go home.”

Residents in the area where the mosque has been proposed have said they are concerned about the increased noise and congestion that would come with the project. Plans for the 135-acre tract include 5 acres set aside for the mosque and another 10.5 acres allocated for the cemetery and a burial preparation accessory facility. The plan includes an additional 15 acres for future cemetery expansion, 28 acres for a future school operated by the church, 21 acres for residential uses, and 4.8 acres for open space.

Douglas also last week said he was greatly concerned that he and other commissioners were in the dark about plans for the mosque and related facilities, even though the land was sold to Al Maad Al Islami Inc., a Doraville non-profit organization, a year ago.

In response to questions from Douglas, County Manager Lloyd Kerr told commissioners that the mosque development proposal was presented to Development Services in June 2015 by attorney Phil Johnson. At that time, the place of worship was referred to as Avery Community Church and Cemetery. Kerr said Development Services was not aware that the project was a mosque and not a community church until county officials met with the project engineer on Aug. 8.

“Let me say that it is absolutely legal to call the project anything they want to call it, but I will leave it up to people in the community to decide for themselves why it was called the Avery Community Church and Cemetery until last week,” said Douglas. “For the record, Avery Place is a subdivision across Highway 162 from this development site.” Continue reading

Maine: Muslim Refugee Collected Welfare for 4 Years While Becoming Islamic Terrorist

I.e., studying the life of Mohammad and reading the Koran. An update on this post.

Source: Welfare for ISIS: The outrageous case of Iranian refugee Adnan Fazeli | Boston Herald

An Iranian refugee receiving welfare benefits in Maine while becoming self-radicalized before he fought and died for ISIS has an enraged Gov. Paul R. LePage calling for a sweep of all such taxpayer-funded payouts in his state and nationwide.

Adnan Fazeli, 38, came to Freeport, Maine, in 2009 and was killed last year on the battlefield in Lebanon after abandoning his wife and three kids to join the terror army, according to federal court documents unsealed this week.

The family’s food stamps and welfare checks were cut off in 2013, Maine officials told the Herald, after Fazeli left the state for Turkey in his quest to join ISIS.

LePage said the stunning news of an Islamic State convert in his midst has left him “embarrassed” and outraged at President Obama’s “failed” vetting of immigrants, adding he’s fed up with states like his being left to deal with the refugee crisis.

“If people need to eat, I’ll feed them. But I want to keep Americans safe,” LePage said. “This is very embarrassing to the state of Maine, and I point the finger at the president and say, ‘How did this happen?’ If the federal government doesn’t do their job we don’t know what we’re getting.”

Fazeli became radicalized over the internet while living in the U.S., according to an affidavit written by George Loder, a state police detective on an FBI task force, who spoke to unnamed informants.

Fazeli was killed Jan. 23, 2015, while fighting alongside 150 ISIS militants during a battle near the Christian town of Ras Baalbek in Lebanon near Syria, according to court records.

Maine officials said Fazeli was on food stamps and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families for at least four years until 2013. LePage said he is now calling for a review of all such benefits in his state. He also said Fazeli’s wife is no longer in Maine.

“I’m having (the Maine Department of Health and Human Services) look at our welfare rolls closer,” LePage said. “All the other states should look at the eligibility, too.”

He said the immigration issue is “a personal one” that has haunted him since Mohamed Atta — one of the ringleaders of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks — flew to Logan International Airport out of Portland, Maine. LePage was the general manager of Marden’s, a discount store where Atta was seen shopping.

The governor also noted brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bombers, were also self-radicalized while on welfare.

“Asylum seekers come here and we have to put them up, but the federal government is in control,” LePage said. “Once they get here I can’t do anything about it. Obama says it’s my problem.

Mohamed Atta came through Maine,” he added. “I’m worried. Absolutely. … I looked back and saw Atta on video shopping and he was the worst. Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks.”

LePage lashed out at Obama, saying the administration’s immigration policies “have been an utter failure and continue to jeopardize the safety of millions of Americans.”

Authorities said Fazeli came to Maine through Catholic Charities Refugee and Immigration Services, but a spokeswoman for the charity said they had nothing to do with his arrival in Freeport and that he sought them out for assistance.


Belying their denial, the organization’s own spokeswoman stated, ‘Catholic Charities hired Fazeli in January 2009 as an “on-call interpreter.”‘

Not a single photograph of Adnan Fazeli exists anywhere. How can that be?
