PALM BAY, Fla. —  Two Palm Bay Tag Office workers are accused of giving valid driver’s licenses to people who hadn’t earned them.

Florida Highway Patrol said it looked into this when the Hillsborough County Tax Collector Office tipped them off.

Investigators said 11 people from Hillsborough County received licenses with discrepancies.

Investigators arrested Misty Ziminsky, a tag office worker, and Ahmad Alhayajneh, an interpreter, on Friday.

Each person who received a fraudulent license was found to have used the Ziminsky and Alhayajneh, according to investigators.

Investigators said Alhayajneh gave answers to applicants on test and licenses were handed out without applicants taking the required physical driving test.

Investigators found nearly two dozen cases.

The Tax Collector’s Office said Ziminsky was fired. Alhayajneh has bonded out of jail.

A county worker and an interpreter are accused of handing out bogus driver’s licenses to people who never took the exam.

There are new concerns they were helping people stay in the country illegally.

The fraud scheme attracted people across the state.

Channel 9’s Blaine Tolison spoke to the Brevard County tax collector, Lisa Cullen, who said she’s not sure  how far the scheme goes.

She said she believes the people who received fraudulent driver’s licenses overstayed their visas in the United States, but she’s not 100 percent sure.

A state and federal investigation is underway.

Cullen said Misty Ziminsky worked in her office for four years, but Cullen only realized in November that Ziminsky was handing out fraudulent driver’s licenses.

She reported it to the state.

“I think early on, it might have been one or two. It just escalated. I assure you, I take it serious and I will address every record,” said Cullen.

Last week, state investigators arrested Ziminsky, an examiner at the office, and Ahmad Alhayajneh, an interpreter who was not an employee.

Investigators found licenses from the Palm Bay office with discrepancies, including some without pictures or signature.

Last month, they discovered that Ziminsky and Ahmad were allegedly working together with Ahmad giving applicants answers on tests, and Ziminsky letting them skip physical driving tests altogether.

Cullen said it’s not clear what people were doing with the driver’s licenses.

“I have no idea. I can’t answer that, but I can tell you they won’t have them for long,” said Cullen.

She said she is working with the state to cancel any fraudulent licenses, but she admits they don’t know how many are out here.

The Florida Highway Patrol and the Department of Homeland Security are investigating, but neither agency would say if the people who received the licenses were being monitored by the government.

Cullen said changes have already been made to prevent any more fraud.

“I look at this as, we need to learn from it, and we’ll institute anything we learn throughout the county,” Cullen said.

Cullen has 170 employees and she said members of her staff at the main office are being interviewed as a precaution.

The office manager was suspended.


Florida: Temple Terrace Police Chief Poses With Convicted Muslim Terror Supporter

Seems some law enforcement agencies in the state of Florida are succumbing to Islamophilia. What started out as a good gesture for community relations with its police department in Temple Terrace FL, turned into a photo op for a convicted terrorist and members of organizations that support him. The question is, did Chief Kenneth Albano know who the majority of the attendees of “Coffee with a Cop” were?

It is important to note it is not always controllable who will attend functions presented by local police, but it also is important that police recognize who they are forever memorialized in pictures with. In this picture, Chief Albano is with Hatem Fariz,(left) who was convicted and served prison time for “Conspiracy to make and receive contributions of funds, goods or services to or for the benefit of specially designated terrorists” The terrorist organization was the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). 

Fariz after being sentenced to 51 months in prison

Hatem Fariz was also convicted and sentenced to prison on welfare fraud he committed while owner and operator of a convenient store in Illinois. The most troubling part of Fariz though, is his relationship with Sami al Arian, a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad,who after serving prison time, was deported to Turkey in Feb 2015.

According to the Council on Foreign Relations, The Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) is “an Islamic, Palestinian nationalist organization that violently opposes the existence of Israel. Designated as a U.S. State Department terrorist organization in 1997, the PIJ targets Israeli civilian and military personnel in its commitment to the creation of an Islamic regime in all of historic Palestine.” The sole purpose of the PIJ is to to destroy Israel and reestablish an Islamic State.

Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) are both off shoots of the Muslim Brotherhood, which may explain Fariz’s relationship with Hassan Shibly, the executive director of CAIR in the Tampa FL area. Shibly, while trying to convince everyone he is a patriotic American, has pursued many lawsuits against law enforcement, even promoting a “don’t snitch” to the FBI campaign years ago.

Also pictured with Fariz is Hatem Bazian, a staunch supporter of the Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement against Israel, as well as the founder of the Students for Justice in Palestine, an aggressive, anti Jewish student group on several university campuses across America.

As if Fazir’s relationships with terror organization leaders weren’t enough, Fazir is the managing director of the Islamic Community of Tampa, also known as Masjid al Qassam, a mosque which is owned and operated by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) the Muslim Brotherhood.

While we recognize Fazir did his time for his role in funding terrorists, we also recognize his penchant for associating with the same thugs. As for Chief Albano, one can only hope he hasn’t become a pawn for the Muslim Brotherhood who clearly seek to infiltrate American law enforcement.

Remember, when you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.

Miami: Muslim pledged “allegiance to Allah”, vowed to kill co-workers

Again, even after admitting it was jihad, no terror charges. Just like the Muslim terrorist arrested in Milwaukee.

Source: Police: Kendall man showed off ISIS execution videos, vowed to dress as the Joker and kill boss | Miami Herald

A Kendall man pledged “allegiance to Allah” and vowed to dress like the comic-book villain Joker before gunning down co-workers, according to a police report.

The man, Enrique Dominguez, 20, was arrested late Friday, accused of aggravated assault. A Miami-Dade judge on Saturday ordered that he must post $5,000 bond and stay on house arrest before trial.

According to an arrest report filed in court, Miami-Dade Police’s Homeland Security Bureau received reports that Dominguez had “expressed an intent to become radicalized” and openly discussed a plot to kill his supervisor.

Last week, Dominguez allegedly told a co-worker that he had bought a shotgun to kill his boss — then showed off execution videos posted by the Middle Eastern terror group ISIS, according to the report.

“I will dress up as the Joker from the Batman movie and bring the gun to work during my break,” he allegedly said, according to the report.

Dominguez, who sports a Joker tattoo on his shoulder, according to the arrest report, works at J&B Importers, a company in Southwest Miami-Dade that distributes bicycle parts.

Detectives found social-media photos of Dominguez “dressed as clown” while posing with a large knife. One photo showed him posing with 15 combat-style knives with the caption: “My lil arsenal.”

On Friday, police said, Dominguez confessed he had bought a shotgun and planned to open fire after his “day of allegiance.” Inside his home, detectives found a canvas bag containing a clown mask, duct tape, plastic wrap, gloves and two large knives,” the report said.

Attorney Saam Zangeneh spoke on Dominguez’s behalf in bond court Saturday. He said Dominguez was a “good kid” and downplayed the threats.

“This may have been some Internet lashing out when you get frustrated with someone and you post things on the Internet,” Zangeneh said.

But Judge Gloria Gonzalez-Meyer said definitively that there was probable cause for the assault charge.

“I’m absolutely convinced, there’s no argument you could make to me at this juncture that could change my determination,” Gonzalez-Meyer said.

Some of Dominguez’s family members were in bond court Saturday but declined to comment.

Missouri: Muslim immigrant arrested for extortion, stalking – accused of Ansar al Sharia ties

Update below.Source: Metro couple believes man charged with extorting, stalking them was a terrorist | fox4kc.com   h/t TROP

PLATTE COUNTY, Mo. — A Libyan national wanted in Platte County, and on the run, was arrested in Florida. Prosecutor Eric Zahnd charged Ali Swei with two felonies for attempted extortion and stalking, but Swei may be facing more than that.

The couple named as his victims say Swei is a terrorist, too. Swei had been on the run for months, and that couple says they are resting easier, but are still afraid.

They’re so afraid that they have moved from their home, and insisted that FOX 4 meet them at an undisclosed location on Friday afternoon for an interview.

“I have been here 24 years, I have never had anybody like that. I help everybody I can, I open my house to a lot of people that needed help. That’s how I felt,” Ibrahim Shalabi explained.

Shalabi and his wife, Fadia Gregni, met Swei at a retreat in Ohio for Libyans. They described him as a nice guy, who told them he had an impressive list of connections in the Libyan government, at the embassy and was in the United States exporting cars overseas. Shalabi and his wife agreed to sponsor Swei for his U.S. citizenship, until they found out more about him.

“He’s very good in scams, fraudulence all the time, lies all the time, you never get him catching the truth and he threats,” said Shalabi.

In early March, Shalabi and his wife became suspicious that Swei was a member of Ansar al-Sharia — an Islamist militia group, after overhearing a phone call Swei was having with someone in Libya about what they believe was a kidnapping.

“He said, ‘what do you want us to do with them.’ Because he does not have the money. He says just to finish him,” Shalabi recalled.

Swei was living with the couple at the time and when he left the house, the two looked on Swei`s computer and say they saw several things tying him to the terrorist organization.

“Do you believe that Ali Swei has ties to terrorist organizations?” FOX 4’s Shannon O’Brien asked.

“Yes, yes,” Gregni replied.

“Do you think he`s a terrorist?” O’Brien asked.

“Yep, yep,” said Gregni.

“He’s proud of it. He is not denying that. He is not denying his involvement with them,” said Shalabi.

The couple asked him to leave, and that`s when they say he demanded $30,000 or else….

“If I don`t pay him by a certain date, he is going to go ahead and tell them to do what they need to do back home. Which is to bomb my family and her house and her family back home,” said Shalabi.

After the threats increased, and the going back and forth with Swei became too much, Shalabi and Gregni went to the police, and Swei took off.

So far, Swei is only charged with two felonies in Platte County. No federal charges have been filed as of now, and the FBI has not returned FOX 4’s calls for comment.

Update: It looks like there might be some trouble in Muslim Brotherhood paradise, via causingfitna:


…the screen captures above come from the Facebook page of Ibrahim Shalabi. FOX4KC recently ran a story of Shalabi and his wife who turned in a Lybian terrorist they had befriended in Ohio sometime earlier.

Take note of his friends list with the yellow four fingered Muslim Brotherhood sign as the profile pic….. The UK recently came out saying the Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamist terror loving organization….. so, that should raise some red flags…..

Another name on that Facebook friends list is Ahmed El-Sherif. There is a lot that we have pointed out about Sherif, but he represented two jihadists in the late 90’s and was recently raided by the FBI and EPA…… but that story went POOOF!

Shalabi may know more Islamic jihadists than he is letting on……. or perhaps he is really clueless? I did not go to deep on the friends list, but out of 73 friends, it took me about 2 minutes to spot Ahmed El-Sherif and the 4 finger Muslim Brotherhood sign…… those are 2 people a normal person might want to avoid.

Florida: 62-year-old Muslim arrested, tried to kidnap 7-year-old girl for sex

via Man accused of trying to kidnap 7-year-old

A suburban West Palm Beach mother is sending a strong warning to all parents after she says a stranger tried to kidnap her young daughter from their yard.

“Keep an extra eye on them because it only takes a minute or two minutes,” said Lee Sam, the mother of the little girl.

Deputies arrested their neighbor 62-year-old Jamal Ahmed and charged him with kidnapping.

The young girl said Ahmed grabbed her by the wrist while she was playing in front of her home Sunday morning.  She told detectives she was able to break away and escape.

“I was angry. I was upset.” said Sam. “He had no business taking her out of her yard. No business at all. We didn’t know him.”

Investigators say they contacted Ahmed and while interviewing him saw a ski mask with holes cut out for the eyes and nose as well as a bag of condoms.

When asked why he had the ski mask his response was “it’s cold in St. Louis,” according to an arrest affidavit.

He was also asked about the condoms and said they were for prostitutes,” the affidavit states.

A deputy who interviewed Ahmed said he confessed to walking the child forcibly to his house against her will and stated numerous times that she is a prostitute and wanted sex.

He said he did not have sex with the child.

Detectives arrested Ahmed and charged him with kidnapping. He’s being held without bail.

Witnesses said they saw Jamal Ahmed, 62, grab the little girl by her wrist while she was playing along Happy Landings Street in suburban West Palm Beach.

Ahmed referred to the girl as a prostitute, according to the report. “How can she be a prostitute at the age of 7 when me and my husband are very overprotective parents?” the girl’s mother told Sun Sentinel news partner WPEC-Ch. 12.

Ahmed appeared in court Monday morning. He is being held without bond.

Florida: Nokomis pastor challenges Islam, Muslim faith

Are you hearing the truth in your church, synagogue or temple? Source: Nokomis church pastor challenges Islam, Muslim faith

Nokomis, Florida — The pastor of a Christian church in Nokomis is known for posting some controversial messages on its marquee and takes on Islam and the Muslim faith.

“Education is the key,” says K.C. McCay, pastor of The Congregational Church on Laurel Road.

The Congregational Church marquee shows a terrorist’s face with the question “Peaceful Islam?” followed by “Where is that in your book?”


McCay says, “Jesus was offensive. The truth is offensive. The truth is what people need to hear.”

McCay says America must get educated on the Quran’s message and the dangers and evils of Islam. He says, “They really believe it’s a peaceful religion and it’s not.”

McCay has been criticized of being intolerant of others. His response, “I am intolerant about the killing, murdering and destroying in the name of a god because our God does not say to do that.”

Does McCay believe all Muslims are bad? “I’m saying Muslims out there thinking they’re good they’re deceived it’s a deception. From our understanding there is nothing in the Quran says they are to live peacefully among us,” says McCay.

“We’re at war with Islam,” says Usama Dakdok.

McCay invited Usama Dakdok, a Christian minister raised in Egypt, to teach about the Quran’s message Wednesday night. Dakdok translated the Muslim holy book from Arabic. Dakkod runs The Straight Way of Grace Ministry.

“There are 79 verses in the Quran Allah commands Muslims who believe to engage in war with Infidels all non-Muslims,” says Dakdok.

CAIR says anti-Islam rhetoric like Donald Trump’s and others’ feeds into ISIS’s plan.

“His extreme anti-Muslim rhetoric is not only anti American but it’s also great recruiting material for ISIS because it reinforces their narrative,” says Hassan Shibly, CAIR in Tampa.

McCay adds, “They want us to think that talking about this is a bad thing. That’s what terror does, terror causes fear. Fear causes people to put their heads in the sand and wish it go away.”

Dakdok adds, “The only way they can survive to live in America is to lie. Muhammad taught Muslims it is lawful to lie.”

Dakdok says Muslim leaders deceive their own about the Muslim faith being a peace and loving faith.

Dakok says, “I believe Muslims are victims No. 1 of Islam and the rest of the world are victims No. 2. We must love the Muslim people to save them from this barbaric savage cult the cult of Islam.”

Florida: Muslim who illegally overstayed student visa caught with ammo in hotel, storage unit

Federal authorities have arrested a 25-year-old illegal alien from the United Arab Emirates who allegedly had stockpiled ammunition in his hotel room and in storage unit.

Federal authorities arrested 25-year-old Hamid Mohamed Ali Rehaif, who is a citizen of the United Arab emirates on the federal charge of possession of ammunition by an unlawful or illegal alien, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Florida confirmed.

The illegal alien from the United Arab Emirates had been been living in a hotel  for more than two months and paying $11,000 in cash.

Rehaif entered the United States legally in 2013 with a student visa and had been enrolled at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne Florida. Just a year later, Rehaif was terminated by the school but rather than leave the country he stayed in Florida thus becoming an illegal alien.

This week authorities caught up with Rehaif at his hotel in Melbourne Florida where they found handgun and rifle ammunition in his room and in a storage unit that he had been renting. The Middle Eastern man admitted to authorities that he had possessed weapons and he had practiced with them at local firing ranges but he recently got rid of them.

Rehaif remains in federal custody where he is expected to go before a federal judge on Monday for a preliminary hearing in Orlando.

The case was investigated by U.S. Homeland Security Investigations and the FBI.

Investigators said Rehaif admitted to being in the country illegally.

U.S. Attorney A. Lee Bentley III said Hamid Mohamed Ahmed Ali Rehaif is in federal custody on a charge of possession of ammunition by an unlawful or illegal alien. He faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison, if convicted.

According to a complaint, Rehaif was admitted into the United States in 2013 under a student visa. He had been enrolled at the Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne, but was terminated as a student in the fall of 2014, officials said.

Authorities say Rehaif also spent time at gun ranges, one in Orlando, the other at FrogBones Gun Range in Melbourne.

“He shot better than other people I’ve seen on the range,” said Doug Torpy, manager.

Torpy said Rehaif visited the range twice, most recently on Dec. 2, renting a Glock 43 for practice. However, Tropy said there was nothing strange about his demeanor.

“He had the proper documentation to be able to shoot and be in possession of a firearm so he presented everything to us and acted as if he was in a sound mind,” said Tropy.

There goes the insanity defense. Deport him.
