Crowdfunding Terrorism Through Islamic Halal Food Certifications

Source: Crowdfunding Terrorism Through Halal Certifications

Although it is well known that the Wahhabist governments, royal families, and top businesses of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain directly finance jihadist terrorists in Syria, Iraq, and countries around the world, many consumers are unaware that percentages of their purchases of Muslim «halal» (imam-certified) food products eventually end up in the hands of jihadist organizations. Halal refers to any food product that can be eaten by observant Muslims. Anything other than halal is «haram» and prohibited for Muslims. Haram includes pork, blood, or meat from approved animals but which have been strangled or slaughtered with blunt knives.

Food and drink producers pay Muslim halal certifiers fees to certify their products as halal. According to Australian One Nation party leader Pauline Hanson and others, certain Muslim halal certification agencies use profits from certification fees to fund terrorist attacks around the world. During an election campaign in Queensland in 2015, Hanson told reporters: «ASIO [Australian Security Intelligence Organization] has picked up that this money has been funded through an organization to fund Syria and the terrorism there». ASIO, all too quickly, denied the charge.

Even if a small percentage of imams who certify products as being halal are passing the profits on to terrorist organizations, it potentially represents a large amount of money. Malaysian studies have valued the worldwide halal food industry as between $600 billion to $2.1 trillion. Halal certifications are usually paid by food companies at set annual rates. Considering all the firms worldwide that pay such fees to imam halal certifiers, this amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars. Some halal certifiers have become quite wealthy from the halal certification scheme. Halal certifiers have also been quite secretive about who receives donations, with some admitting only that the funds go to Islamic madrassa schools and mosques. However, many of these madrassas and mosques are linked to the Wahhabis.

Some Muslims have opined that halal certification is nothing more than a money-making scam, with the most ridiculous aspect being halal certification for dog food. It is ironic that the same imams who declare dogs to be «unclean» animals also willingly charge pet food manufacturers to certify food for the «unclean» beasts to be halal. Other Muslims have conceded that the halal certification scheme has become as financially corrupt as segments of the Jewish kosher product certification system. South African Muslim authorities have pointed out, to the dismay of the halal certification industry, that the Koran forbids imams from charging money to certify food as halal. Yet, the practice continues with fees charged for halal «stamps» on food, in some cases, indirectly propping up various jihadist groups with large sums of ready cash. Continue reading

CAIR petitions Obama to free convicted Islamic terror financiers, Holy Land Foundation (updated)

Actually…CAIR is the Holy Land Foundation is Hamas is the Muslim Brotherhood. via Holy Land Foundation Hamas Support Convictions Affirmed

In Texas today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for Fifth Circuit has upheld the convictions of five jihadists behind the Holy Land Foundation, the piggy bank set up by the Brotherhood in the U.S., under the guise of “charity,” to fund Hamas to the tune of tens of millions of dollars during the deadly intifada.

The three-judge panel’s unanimous 170-page opinion recounts that Hamas was created by Brotherhood operatives in 1987 as the Brotherhood’s “Palestinian branch.” Thereafter, “the Muslim Brotherhood directed its world-wide chapters to establish so-called ‘Palestinian Committees’ to support Hamas from abroad.” In the U.S., the “Palestine Committee” was led by Mousa Abu Marzook (who, for a time in the early Nineties, actually ran Hamas from his home in Virginia). The Palestine Committee created not only the Holy Land Foundation but a number of other Islamist entities in the U.S. The leaders of one of those entities, the Islamic Association for Palestine, subsequently created CAIR — the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which was cited as an unindicted co-conspirator in the case.

HLF’s Familial Relationships to Hamas Leaders Overseas


The only question now is whether Hussein Obama will pardon the Muslim terrorists as he flees the White House.

Remember, terror-listed Muslim group CAIR Met with Congress More Than 325 Times in 2016!

As for Siddiqi, for someone who runs a hate group called Hate Hurts, his twitter timeline is full of hate…for infidels.

Virginia: Muslim convert arrested for ISIS support; wanted local attack

A self-proclaimed supporter of the Islamic State living in Suffolk told FBI agents last month after his arrest they were lucky they picked him up outside his home, according to a federal prosecutor.

Lionel Nelson Williams, who had a loaded AK-47 and 9 mm handgun inside the house, said he would have been happy to shoot it out with the agents.

But what about his elderly grandmother, with whom he lived?

“She knows when to duck,” Williams said.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph DePadilla revealed more of the government’s case Wednesday during a detention hearing in U.S. District Court in Norfolk. DePadilla said Williams confessed to the FBI after his Dec. 21 arrest that he supported the Islamic State terror group and that he told an undercover federal agent during a nine-month investigation he wanted to martyr himself in Hampton Roads

“It’s the only way,” Williams told the undercover agent, according to DePadilla.

The prosecutor did not say where Williams planned to attack but stressed that he said it would be local. DePadilla took that to mean Suffolk or the surrounding area.

Assistant Federal Public Defender Keith Kimball argued that the FBI entrapped his client. He said the First Amendment allows Williams to express support for the Islamic State, and he questioned whether his client started talking about martyrdom only because the FBI led him that way.

“Entrapment is flowing throughout this case,” Kimball said.

In light of the defendant’s interest in martyring himself, Magistrate Judge Lawrence Leonard ordered Williams – also known as Harun Ash-Shababi – to stay incarcerated pending his trial.

Williams, 26, was arrested last month and indicted Wednesday on one charge of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of 20 years.

According to court documents, a former associate of Williams contacted the FBI in March to report that Williams had been posting statements on Facebook that indicated his support for the Islamic State. The associate said Williams had recently acquired an AK-47 rifle. Continue reading

Houston: Muslim father in honor killings case sent to prison for disability fraud

The patriarch of a Jordanian-American family from Montgomery County, whose members face murder charges in so-called “honor killings,” has been sentenced to federal prison in an unrelated case involving the theft of disability benefits.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes ordered Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, 57, to serve almost four years for his role in defrauding the Social Security Administration for more than a decade and to pay $290,651 in restitution.

Irsan’s wife, Shmou Ali Alrawabdeh, 37, and his daughter, 30-year-old Nadia Irsan, were convicted of providing false statements to authorities about the fraud scheme. Each of them previously received 24-month federal sentences.

According to court documents and testimony, Ali Irsan applied for Supplemental Security Income or SSI benefits in 2002 by claiming that he was disabled and had been unable to work since 1990. His wife also claimed a disability and began to receive benefits in 2005.

In seeking that financial support, which is reserved for people with limited assets excluding homes and cars, family members didn’t report a bank account in Jordan with a balance that fluctuated between $4,000 and $16,000 or a 2010 lawsuit settlement check for $75,000. Hidden cash was found during a 2014 raid on their Conroe home.

Alrawabdeh and Nadia Irsan falsified documents to aid the fraud scheme. Nadia Irsan, who was unemployed, had a checking account with deposits of more than $250,000. She also lied in telling officials that a sister with cerebral palsy lived with her and paid rent. In actuality, that sibling resided with their father, Ali Irsan, and Alrawabdeh.

The trio and another relative now must answer more serious allegations in Harris County.

Ali Irsan, who is a naturalized U.S. citizen, has been charged with capital murder in the 2012 shooting deaths of 30-year-old activist Gelareh Bagherzadeh outside her parents’ Galleria-area home and of his son-in-law, Coty Beavers, 28.

Capital murder charges

Bagherzadeh was a friend of Ali Irsan’s daughter, Nesreen, who was married to Beavers. Both women were studying molecular genetics at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Ali Irsan, a strict disciplinarian and observant Muslim father, allegedly was outraged when Nesreen married a Christian without his permission. He blamed Bagherzadeh, who was dating Beavers’ twin, Cory, for encouraging his daughter’s relationship.

Alrawabdeh and Ali Irsan’s son, 21-year-old Nasim Irsan, also are charged with capital murder. They are accused in assisting with the plan to gun down Bagherzadeh.

Nadia Irsan faces charges accusing her of assisting in the scheme to kill Coty Beavers by stalking her sister, Nesreen, while carrying a gun.

Ali Irsan also fatally shot another son-in-law in 1999. Authorities determined that the killing was self-defense.

More on this Muslim immigrant:

“I killed that (bitch), and you’re next. No one insults my honor as a Muslim and gets away with it.”

According to Harris County prosecutors, that’s what Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, 57, told his daughter after the death of Gelareh Bagherzadeh in January 2012.

US govt loaned money to OSU jihadi refugee to fly to America

abul-razak-ali-artan

Of course U.S. government money is money pilfered from American taxpayers – who are financially supporting millions of Muslim “refugees” and illegal aliens. Source: Ten Unanswered Questions About the Refugee Resettlement Program and Somali Attacker at Ohio State – Breitbart

by Michael Patrick Leahy

Breitbart News has put together a list of ten unanswered questions about [Abdul Razak Ali] Artan, the Somali refugee who on Monday attacked eleven people on the campus of Ohio State University, first with a car and then with a knife, before he was shot and killed by a campus police officer.


(7) Has the Artan family repaid the estimated $5,200 loan they received from the federal government to fly one way from Pakistan to Dallas, Texas on June 5, 2014?

All refugees who arrive in the United States under the federal refugee resettlement program are required to sign a loan agreement to repay the cost of their flight to the United States.

According to Travelocity.com, the cheapest one way flights from Karachi, Pakistan to Dallas, Texas currently cost around $650 per person. For eight people, the cost would be approximately $5,200.

If the Artan family arrived in the United States in compliance with the rules and regulations of the federal refugee resettlement program, they would have signed a promissory note for about $5,200 to repay their travel expenses. Both ORR and Catholic Charities of Dallas would have a copy of that note, as well as the progress the Artan family has made in repaying that loan.

Neither ORR nor Catholic Charities of Dallas have responded to a request from Breitbart News to provide that information.

More importantly:

(6) Why was the Artan family’s application to come to the United States through the federal refugee resettlement program approved in 2014 by an officer of the United States Citizenship Immigration Services, part of the Department of Homeland Security, after the family spent seven years in Pakistan?Though Somali refugees in Pakistan apparently have a difficult economic existence, they are not fleeing physical persecution experienced in that country.

Many of the Somali refugees who live there wish to emigrate to the United States or another country in the West. Very few of them are approved by the United States Citizenship Immigration Services (USCIS) to participate in the federal refugee resettlement program.

Breitbart News has asked the USCIS what uniquely qualified Abdul Razak Ali Artan, his mother, and six siblings to be accepted into the federal refugee resettlement while many other Somali refugees living in Pakistan have not been accepted. USCIS has not responded to the inquiry.

“This seven year stay in Pakistan by Artan and his family seems very fishy to me. Pakistan is a safe haven for Muslim refugees. The refugee camps there are also well known breeding grounds for Islamic terrorism,” Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement Watch tells Breitbart News.

Somali refugees in Pakistan are considered problematic by at least one United Nations official.

“Somali refugees are the most difficult to deal with. They are easily manipulated towards criminal activities, making it difficult to negotiate with them at times,” a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees official in Pakistan told the Express Tribune in 2012.

Newsweek recently reported that Pakistan is deporting thousands of Afghan refugees back to war-torn Afghanistan.

“This ‘Federal Fumbles’ report provides specific examples of wasteful spending and unnecessary regulations that are not in the taxpayer’s best interest, and shows specific solutions for how the federal government can become more efficient,” he said.

The report, called “Federal Fumbles: 100 ways the government dropped the ball,” lists $247 billion in what it calls wasteful and inefficient federal spending, as well as offering solutions for the examples.

The report also found $1 billion was spent on hospitals and infrastructure in Palestine.

Woolworth’s store scraps Christmas decorations telling customers the shop is now Muslim

Source: Woolworth’s store scraps Christmas decorations telling customers the shop is now Muslim

Shocked shoppers were told the news after they discovered the Yultide selection had been put on display, and then taken down just days later

A MASSIVE row has erupted after staff at a Woolworth’s branch boasted that they would not have any Christmas decorations this year because it’s now a Muslim store.

Shocked locals in the German town of Dortmund were told the news after they discovered that the Yultide selection including tree decorations and chocolate Santas had been put on display, and then taken down just days later.

When they enquired about the reason, a staff member at the store said: “We are a Muslim business now. We do not want to sell Christmas articles.”

The branch manager Seda Capakcur, 25, told local media no Christmas articles would be sold anymore.

She said: “The Christmas articles are hardly in demand here. Already last year, everything remained unsold.”

Spokeswoman Diana Preisert said: “Woolworth is, of course, not a Muslim company. Christmas merchandise is available from September onwards and should be sold out by the end of December.

“In this branch, however, demand was too low. Therefore the goods were distributed to other branches.”

She said the reason for not selling the decorations was that there were simply no customers left in the area as Muslims had replaced most of the Christians.

The company spokeswoman added that this had created specific “local conditions” that meant low interest in Christmas items from the small number of Christians remaining in the area of Dortmund who were interested in celebrating the festival.

According to city officials, the share of Christians in the total population of Northern Dortmund where the store is located is 29.2 percent.

Over 70 percent belong to other religions or have no allegiance.
