Florida: FAU Muslim Professor Defends ISIS Chopping Off Hands! (video)

May 24, 2016

(THE UNITED WEST) On Tuesday on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL, the university’s Muslim Student Association’s hosted a so-called Islamophobia panel discussion, which was attended by the United West.

FAU Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Associate Professor Bassem Al Halabi was included on the panel of these distinguished experts and he made the incredible statement about the case to be made for Sharia Law and it’s provisions of capital punishment, including the cutting off of hands.

‘“Where there is no Sharia, Islamic Sharia, they die in dozens and hundreds every day because of organized crime. People kill people, other people or steal pizza for $10 and so – so when Islamic Shariah is saying about capital punishment – so even though it sounds like it is severe but if that is the solution to prevent any crimes, then it still has a lot of rules and regulations. I will just mention one and stop here, which is let’s say cutting off the hands of a person if they steal. It sounds very severe. It sounds very barbaric, I know. But if takes one or two people to have their hands cut off, and then there’s no more stealing and there’s no more stealing in the whole nation – that’s a much better resolution than having hundreds of people die every day.”

Looks like we’ll have to update The growing list of Muslim Student Association (MSA) terrorists.

And, from the link up top:

Alhalabi has been in trouble with the law, himself. In March 2010, Alhalabi was arrested for physically assaulting two individuals during a Muslim Capitol Day function in Tallahassee, Florida. The assaults took place an hour apart from one another. And in June 2003, the US Department of Commerce charged Alhalabi with illegally shipping a $13,000 military-grade thermal imaging device to Syria, a state sponsor of terrorism.

Florida: Broward County announces $25K cash for tips on terrorist activity

There must be some concern in South Florida. via: Crime Stoppers announces cash rewards of up to $25K for tips that lead to federal terrorism prosecutions – Sun Sentinel

Paris, San Bernardino, Brussels — South Florida law enforcement leaders don’t want a Broward County city added to the list of recent terrorist attacks.

On Thursday, officials announced that rewards of up to $25,000 are being offered for anonymous tips that lead to arrests for federal terrorism charges.

“We say, not here, not in Broward, not if we can help it,” said Paul Jaworski, president of the board of Broward County Crime Stoppers, which will disburse the cash rewards. “Terrorism will not go away on its own.”

Present at Crime Stoppers’ Fort Lauderdale offices were members of the FBI, Broward County Chiefs of Police Association, Sunrise Police, Lighthouse Point Police, Hallandale Beach Police and the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

“People know what suspicious activity is … but they fail or neglect to do anything about it,” said John Brooks, Sunrise’s police chief. He is also liaison for the chiefs association to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. “If they see something that they believe is suspicious, make that call to Crime Stoppers, through several different ways. Just make sure we get the information.”

The organization had previously offered a $15,000 reward for such information, but decided to increase it by $10,000 and publicize it “to make a bigger impact in the community, and to grab people’s attention, make them sit up and realize this could happen here,” Jaworski said.

The new, bigger reward will be promoted on social media, turf that is shared by terrorists, both foreign and domestic, to recruit followers.

“That is the tool that these subjects are using today,” said Xanthie Mangum, assistant special agent in charge of counter-terrorism for the FBI in Miami. “They’re very, very advanced, very sophisticated. We’re seeing young men and women; they’re very agile on social media platforms. So that is indeed a very critical component to try to identify these threats.”

Users of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube will see the reward advertised, and it will also appear on a truck carrying electronic ads. A billboard on North Andrews Avenue, north of West Cypress Creek Road, will also describe the program.

Ralph Page, executive director of the county’s 35-year-old Crime Stoppers program, said he believes Broward’s branch of the national organization is the only one that is offering such a high reward. The group credited its civilian board members for fundraising and donations from the community to develop the pool of cash.

Some of the 9/11 hijackers spent time in South Florida, and prior to the attacks, trained in the state to fly planes. In the 15 years since, there have been several prosecutions of South Florida-based terrorism plotters or supporters.

“Broward County is very unique,” said the FBI’s Mangum. “We are a very cosmopolitan county. A lot of individuals converge here; they are coming from throughout the world and the United States. You just don’t know who may have seen something, what they can share with us.”

She described all of South Florida as “particularly important” for terrorism investigations but said Broward’s high population, tourism, schools and infrastructure make it “just as vulnerable.”

Since its founding in 1981, Page said Broward County Crime Stoppers has paid about $2.7 million in rewards to anonymous callers, “and none of that was in taxpayer money.”

Tipsters have helped police make 12,593 arrests in the county and solve 22,067 cases, including 269 murders, he said.

Federal investigators were reluctant to describe recent South Florida terrorism cases in which tips were a key to solving them, because an anonymous source could perhaps become vulnerable to offenders.

“Very critical,” Mangum said, describing the importance of tips. “There is an early warning indicator for everything that is about to impact us in the community … We don’t want to be sitting with our hands crossed, waiting for an attack.

“We see this as a very positive opportunity for us to share information and identify threats, prior to attacks,she said.

Broward County Crime Stoppers asks anyone with information about criminal activity to call 954-493-8477. For more information about how to email or text a tip to the organization, go to www.browardcrimestoppers.org.


They should include tips on food stamp, EBT and other types of fraud that Muslims use to fund terrorism but might not show any outward signs of terror links. Peruse our category on Fraud to see dozens of posts with damages in the billions of dollars stolen from taxpayers.

Florida Atlantic Univ ‘Islamophobia Forum’ Features Terror-linked Muslim Panel, Bigotry

More Hamas/Muslim Brotherhood/CAIR infiltration on college campuses.

Source: Islamophobia Forum Features Panelists Linked to Terror and Bigotry | Frontpage Mag

This month, the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) will be sponsoring a panel discussion about Islamophobia. Islamophobia is a modern-day term used mainly by Islamists to describe an unwarranted fear or hatred of Islam and/or Muslims and a term also used by the like to, more appropriately, shut down any conversation about the radical element found within the Muslim community. Not surprisingly, the majority of the event’s panel is made up of those linked to terrorism and bigotry, themselves.

The title of the forum, which is scheduled to take place at FAU in Boca Raton, on May 23rd, is ‘ISLAMOPHOBIA, Voices from the Muslim Community.’ The flyer for the event displays the photos of five panelists, at least three of which have known ties to terrorism. They are Maulana Shafayat Mohamed, the imam of the Darul Uloom mosque, located in Pembroke Pines, Florida; Wilfredo Amr Ruiz, the legal counsel for the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR); and Bassem Abdo Alhalabi (al-Halabi), an Associate Professor at FAU.

Shafayat Mohamed is the imam at Darul Uloom. He founded it in October 1994. Since then, it has become a haven for al-Qaeda associates. “Dirty Bomber” Jose Padilla was a student at Darul Uloom. Now-deceased al-Qaeda Global Operations Chief Adnan el-Shukrijumah was a prayer leader there. And Darul Uloom Arabic teacher Imran Mandhai, Hakki Aksoy and Shueyb Mossa Jokhan hatched an operation at the mosque to blow up different structures, including area power stations, Jewish businesses, and a National Guard armory.

Shafayat Mohamed, himself, has been thrown off a number of boards in Broward County due to his outspokenness against homosexuals. In February 2005, an article written by him was published on the Darul Uloom website, entitled ‘Tsunami: Wrath of God.’ In it, he claims that gay sex caused the 2004 Indonesian tsunami. Shafayat Mohamed’s article doesn’t just target homosexuals. It also attacks Jews and Christians. In the piece, he claims that most Jews and Christians, whom he refers to as “People of the Book,” are “perverted transgressors.”

Another of the Islamophobia forum participants is Wilfredo Ruiz. Ruiz is the attorney for CAIR-Florida.

CAIR was established in June 1994 as part of a terrorist umbrella group headed by then-global head of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook. In 2007 and 2008, CAIR was named by the US Justice Department a co-conspirator for two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. Since its founding, a number of CAIR representatives have served jail time and/or have been deported from the United States for terrorist-related crimes. In November 2014, CAIR, itself, was designated a terrorist group by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government.

CAIR-Florida reflects the extremism of its parent organization. In August 2010, CAIR-Florida Executive Director Hassan Shibly, who has denied that Hezbollah is a terrorist group, wrote, “Israel and its supporters are enemies of God…” In July 2014, CAIR-Florida co-sponsored a pro-Hamas rally in Downtown Miami, where rally goers shouted, “We are Hamas” and “Let’s go Hamas.” Following the rally, the event organizer, Sofian Zakkout, wrote, “Thank God, every day we conquer the American Jews like our conquests over the Jews of Israel!”

Ruiz is also the legal advisor for Zakkout’s group, the American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA). AMANA regularly promotes white supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. In fact, the latest posting on AMANA’s Facebook page is an anti-Jewish David Duke video. In July 2010, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) condemned AMANA for posting onto its website homepage another anti-Semitic Duke video. The ADL described the video as being “venomous.” The video was posted right above an expose about Ruiz.

A third participant at the Islamophobia forum is Bassem Abdo Alhalabi.

Bassem Alhalabi has been an Associate Professor at FAU’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering, since August 2002. Prior to arriving at FAU, Alhalabi was located in Tampa at the University of South Florida (USF), working as an assistant to USF Professor Sami al-Arian, while al-Arian was a leader in Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). Alhalabi co-authored publications with al-Arian and, when applying to FAU, he used al-Arian as a reference. In May 2006, al-Arian was sentenced to 57 months in prison, after pleading guilty to providing services to PIJ.

Alhalabi has been in trouble with the law, himself. In March 2010, Alhalabi was arrested for physically assaulting two individuals during a Muslim Capitol Day function in Tallahassee, Florida. The assaults took place an hour apart from one another. And in June 2003, the US Department of Commerce charged Alhalabi with illegally shipping a $13,000 military-grade thermal imaging device to Syria, a state sponsor of terrorism.

Alhalabi is a Director and co-founder of the Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR). During his leadership, for three years, the ICBR website had an essay prominently posted on it, stating, “Jews are people of treachery and betrayal… As the Muslims and Jews are enemies residing in opposing religious and doctrinal camps, it is not possible for them to be brought together unless one is made to submit to the other by force… [Muhammad] said, ‘You will fight the Jews and will prevail over them, so that a rock will say, O Muslim! There is Jew behind me, kill him!’”

The contact for the FAU event is Abdur Rahman al-Ghani (aka Samuel Pittman), Events Coordinator for the Islamic Foundation of South Florida (IFSF). Al-Ghani’s Facebook is littered with anti-American, anti-Jewish and Islamic supremacist language and images. In December 2012, he wrote, “Zionist/Israelis are not holy people. They are demonic and the most evil on earth.” In March 2012, he posted a graphic stating, “ISLAM WILL DOMINATE THE WORLD.” And in February 2012, he posted a bloodied CIA logo with the caption, “Wiping out the CIA.”

While the FAU event wishes to portray Muslims as having suffered from the prejudice of others (‘Islamophobia’), it seems that those involved in the event are immersed in bigotry, themselves, where homosexuality is professed to cause natural disasters, where white supremacist David Duke is placed on a pedestal, where Christians are cursed, and where Jews are labeled “demonic” and okay to murder.

‘Islamophobia,’ in the eyes of those behind the FAU forum, in reality, is not a way for people to learn about the suffering within the Muslim community – not at all. Instead, Muslim victimhood is being used as a vehicle to silence those who look to expose their and their terror supporting compatriots’ sinister words and deeds.

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

Florida: St. Augustine Beach billboard exposes reality of Islam

What’s controversial about it? 1,400 years of history are quite clear. Source: St. Augustine Beach billboard’s anti-Islam message prompts online petition | StAugustine.com

A controversial billboard posted along State Road A1A on Anastasia Island has led to the creation of a petition aimed at its removal that’s attracted support from all over the world.

But the billboard’s message — “Islam Bloody Islam, doomed by its doctrine” — is especially disturbing to some members of the St. Augustine community who think the sign misrepresents the city as a whole.

Becky Williams, 31, created the petition Saturday on Care2’s petition website after noticing the billboard on her drive home from work the night before.

“Many of us feel like someone has taken the voice of our entire community and blasted it on a billboard in a way that has nothing to do with our own beliefs or feelings,” Williams said.

Since when did a billboard of any kind represent the entire community? Do Planned Parenthood billboards mean the entire community supports abortion? Did this billboard represent the entire community? Billboards claim “Jesus is Muslim” and “Mohammed is in the Bible”

Williams said the petition is meant to rally support for the Muslim community.

Now we get to Williams real goal. Does she support the wife-beating Muslims in the community? The jihad-waging Muslims in the community? Those who want sharia to replace the Constitution? Even if there is just one, like one billboard, would that represent the entire community? (Even if it is permitted by sharia law?)

“We didn’t want all of this to get lost in a debate over freedom of speech,” Williams said. “Whether or not the billboard gets removed, there’s at least been a feeling of support and community and showing that love and tolerance has a more powerful voice.”

There is no free speech in Islam, and they are waging a war on it here too.

The billboard is owned by St. John’s Outdoor Advertising, but it’s unclear who paid to have the message posted and owner Robert Harry Jr. did not respond to interview requests.

The company’s phone number was out of service on Monday and no one answered the door at the business during repeated trips to its Riverview Drive address.

The petition has already gathered thousands of signatures of support from those in the U.S. and beyond. New Zealand, South Africa, Turkey, the United Kingdom and Spain are just some of the many countries represented among those rallying for the billboard’s removal.

“I knew there would be support, but I had no idea it would grow to this level,” Williams said.

People like Williams would rather side with foreigners and those who will kill Americans in an instant. Dhimmitude.

Ayman El-Sawa, 50, a member of the Islamic Center in St. Augustine, said the threat isn’t just against Muslims, it’s against all communities.

“Because we don’t want someone tomorrow to put up a sign against Christianity or Judism or white or black,” El-Sawa said. “We don’t want this to happen not only to Islam, but to anyone. We don’t want this to happen to our country.”

The Islamic Center has tentative plans to meet next weekend with other local churches and groups to organize peace and unity rallies.

El-Sawa said they also hope to meet with local government and St. Augustine Beach Mayor Rich O’Brien to discuss the billboard.

“I believe as an activist, we should work with our local government,” El-Sawa said. “I believe every great thing that has happened in this great country happened because people came together and worked with the government.”

A Muslim activist who will quietly work to submit the local government to sharia.

O’Brien did not return calls to confirm whether a meeting will take place.

Florida House Speaker Kills Counter-terrorism Law That Passed Full Senate 35-0

Source: Florida House Speaker Steve Crisafulli Kills Key State-Level Counterterrorism Measure Known as Andy’s Law | Terror Trends Bulletin

State legislation known as “Andy’s Law” stiffens criminal penalties for terrorism and material support for terrorism.

It is needed on the state level because our bureaucratized counterterrorism apparatus on the federal level is routinely reluctant to bring terrorism charges in cases that are clearly terrorism. The law also creates a civil cause of action empowering victims of terrorism to sue in state court those who provide material support and aid those who commit acts of terrorism. Andy’s Law has already passed into law in Louisiana, Arkansas, Kansas, North Carolina and Tennessee.

It is called Andy’s Law after Private Andy Long, who was gunned down on June 1, 2009 by a Jihadist named Abdulhakim Muhammed outside an Army Recruiting office in Little Rock, Arkansas, as reported in the documentary, “Losing Our Sons.”

One state in which Andy’s Law will not be passed into law in 2016 evidently is Florida.

Crisafulli killed Andy’s Law

That’s because the state’s House Speaker, Steve Crisafulli, killed the Andy’s Law bill that was authored by Senator Joe Negron and Representative Mike Hill.

Prior to Crisafulli’s action, the bill had passed 3 committees in the Florida Senate, 2 subcommittees of the House and a full committee of the House without a single opposing vote.

It then passed the full Senate 35-0.

At the 11th hour, at Crisafulli’s specific direction, the bill was blocked from a vote on the House floor.

Crisafulli is a prime example of a generation of establishment Republican politicians who have failed the nation in terms of making national security a top priority as President Reagan did.

The question remains: why did Crisafulli block a measure that has sailed through state legislatures elsewhere and had unanimous bipartisan support in the Florida legislature?

The only known opponents of Andy’s Law are Muslim Brotherhood groups, as identified in the largest terrorism financing prosecution in U.S. history, the U.S. v. the Holy Land Foundation.

In that trial, groups such as the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) and others were named as Muslim Brotherhood fronts and unindicted co-conspirators in that prosecution.

All of these well-funded groups and their allies are active in Florida. They are the only known opponents of Andy’s Law. This raises serious questions about the political terrain in the Sunshine State to say the least when a prominent Republican leader would unilaterally kill a popular counterterrorism measure opposed by nefarious elements of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Florida: Terror-linked, ex-CAIR Thug Addresses Catholic School Kids

Source: Family Security Matters

by PAMELA GELLER

The infamous founder and past executive director of the Tampa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Ahmed Bedier,  was given unfettered access to St Petersburg Catholic High School school children to spew and spread his vile hate. If a religious school not only sanctions this deceptive propaganda, but gifts these terror-tied CAIR operatives their own school assembly, what shot do our kids have?

ISLAMIZATION OF AMERICA

Despite the continuing Muslim genocide of Christians in the Middle East and Africa, American Catholic leaders continue not only to turn a blind eye to jihad terror and the persecution of their fellow Christians, but are actively aiding and abetting the forces that are persecuting them. Last month, the entire student body of St. Petersburg Catholic High School in St. Petersburg, Florida, was called together to hear a deceptive presentation on “Islamophobia” from the notorious Ahmed Bedier, who openly supports the jihad terror group Hezbollah and has worked for the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Bedier’s address was ostensibly about fighting the supposedly rising level of “Islamophobia”; he also offered what he presented as a primer on Islamic culture. In it, he blamed the U.S. for ISIS, claiming that the bloodthirsty caliphate arose because we bombed innocent civilians in Iraq. He also called out Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, white people, Jews, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Ben Carson – all as examples of Muslim-haters – while proselytizing for Islam.

Bedier compared a Jewish podiatrist with Osama bin Laden, claiming that this podiatrist had weapons in his house and was planning to attack an Islamic center. He didn’t address the disparity between this one alleged attacker and bin Laden’s worldwide terror network. He dismissed the jihad terror group ISIS, which controls a territory larger than Great Britain and has attracted 30,000 foreign jihadis to its ranks, as “a few people.” He blamed the rise of ISIS on Syria’s Assad, claiming that when people demonstrated for freedom, Assad bombed the protesters and insisted that we are overstating the threat of Islamic terror groups, especially ISIS. We are spending too much on security and war, he said, and declared that we should be spending that money on alleviating poverty.

The real problem, said Bedier, is anti-Muslim bigotry. “Islamophobia,” he said, is all over TV, and no one is challenging it. He said that “Islamophobia” is just like anti-Semitism and the same thing will happen: We’ll have a Holocaust. He didn’t mention that FBI statistics show that anti-Semitic attacks are much more common than attacks on innocent Muslims. Nor did he address the Islamic texts and teachings jihadis use to justify violence. Continue reading
