Vermont: Lone councilman knew about, supported secret plan to flood town with Syrian Muslims

And still does. via: Unraveling Rutland (VT) may help every town in the same boat! « Refugee Resettlement Watch

As I travel around the US meeting with citizens concerned about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program, patterns are developing and one of those is that there is no doubt that when your town is targeted for a new resettlement site (or expansion of an old one) it is done with the utmost secrecy and very often involves an over-zealous elected official (a mayor or city council member).

William Notte – knew about, supports Muslim refugee influx

SOMETHING NOT RIGHT: William Notte, president of the Rutland Board of Aldermen, was the only city official other than the mayor to know about a secret plan to make Rutland a refugee resettlement community.

A secret plan to make Rutland a permanent refugee resettlement community has divided residents and put the mayor’s political future in doubt. But at least one member of the Board of Aldermen knew about the secret, and that official told Watchdog he is “stunned” at how fast the plan was carried out.

Prior to announcing the resettlement of Syrian refugees, Rutland Mayor Louras held secret meetings with representatives of the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, the State Department, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants and Gov. Peter Shumlin. He also consulted with a single alderman: Board of Aldermen President William Notte.

In this interview, Notte answered Watchdog’s questions about his role in the backroom deal to make Rutland a refugee resettlement community.

Watchdog:  Mayor Louras hid his refugee resettlement plans from voters, police and even the Board of Aldermen. What is your response?

Notte: To make clear, I did know that the mayor had suggested Rutland to the VRRP a couple of months before his announcement. I was the only alderman that knew. I had the opportunity to sit in on one meeting with him and VRRP.

As far as the secrecy before the announcement, I really don’t have much issue with that. It was a fact-finding period. Quite frankly, if Rutland was put under a microscope and it was found that we didn’t have a stellar job base or we did not have a supply of good apartments for people who want to move into this community, those are problems to work on, but certainly nothing I want to bandy about as a public banner.

 …
Notte: I’ll just say that I support refugee resettlement in Rutland — I think it’s the right thing to do (and) I think it’s a good thing to do for this community  — but I remain stunned at how quickly everything clicked into place.

Notte: The point I try to get across to people when I’ve been called about this is, the mayor didn’t make this decision, nor did the Board of Aldermen. The mayor didn’t decide to have refugees resettle here; the mayor asked the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program to consider us. The decision as to whether or not refugees are going to come here ultimately rests with he State Department.

He didn’t sign any official document, and the Board of Aldermen didn’t sign any official decree saying refugees are going to come here. The mayor essentially said, “Hey, please consider us,” and the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program decided to do so, and now the matter rests with the State Department. And I think there’s some confusion about how the process actually is playing out, which is understandable whenever bureaucracy is involved, and we’re talking about a federal program, so the bureaucracy is convoluted to say the least.

But this isn’t a case of the mayor making a unilateral decision for Rutland



Actually it was. The mayor unilaterally offered up Rutland without seeking input from residents. Both the mayor and the alderman who knew about it were 100% for bringing in Syrian Muslims to Rutland and still are. They don’t care if people oppose it, even if a majority oppose it. Both will likely flee town when the shit hits the fan.

As Ann Corcoran, whom Donald Trump should offer a position of some sort, writes:

The lesson I’m learning is this—-as it is confirmed to me repeatedly that refugee seeding plans are done in secrecy, you must be working locally to get the right people elected to political office and get mayors like this one out!

And alderman/women and city council members too.

It won’t stop with the 100 Muslim migrants forced on the small town. Contact the City of Rutland’s Board of Aldermen Members with email addresses.


We’ve been alerted it’s happening in South Carolina too: Another Refugee Resettlement Planned For SC COMPLEX WOULD BE LOCATED FIVE MILES FROM NUCLEAR POWER PLANT!

 

Retraité! French media to stop publishing photos and names of Muslim terrorists

allah-fantSource: French media to stop publishing photos and names of terrorists

Several French news organisations have said they will no longer publish photographs of people responsible for terrorist killings, to avoid bestowing “posthumous glorification”.

Le Monde published an editorial after the latest attack, the murder of an elderly priest in a church near Rouen by two men claiming allegiance to Islamic State. Under the headline “Resisting the strategy of hate”, Le Monde argued on Wednesday that all elements of society had to be involved in the struggle against terrorism, and that media organisations had a special role to play.

“The sites and newspapers that produce this information cannot excuse themselves from self-examination on several fronts. Since Isis terrorism first appeared, Le Monde has changed its practices several times,” the newspaper said.

It first chose not to republish images from Isis propaganda documents. Then, after the attack in Nice on 14 July, when a truck drove through crowds enjoying the Bastille Day public holiday, Le Monde said it had decided to “no longer publish photographs of the perpetrators of killings, to avoid the potential effect of posthumous glorification”.

The newspaper said it would continually debate other practices in relation to the coverage of terrorism.

The television station BFM-TV and the Catholic newspaper La Croix said they had chosen the same course of action. “We made the decision last night to no longer show pictures of the terrorists until further notice,” BFM-TV editorial director Hervé Béroud told Agence France-Presse. “We have been thinking about this for some time. Our decision was speeded up by Nice, by the repeated tragedies.”

Europe 1 radio said it would not reproduce photographs of perpetrators of terrorist killings on its website and would not broadcast their names. The France 24 television channel is also expected to announce that it will no longer show the pictures in its broadcasts.

The blackout is not total. Michel Field, the executive director of news at the state-run France Télévisions, issued a statement saying: “Our duty is to inform, it’s the right of citizens to be informed. And we must resist this race towards self-censorship and grand declarations of intention.”

Field said suppressing the names and pictures of terrorists would contribute to the anxiety of the public and the feeling that they were being kept in the dark by the mainstream media, adding that such censorship was ridiculous in the age of social media.

Johan Hufnagel, the editor of the newspaper Libération, said it would take decisions on a case-by-case basis. “We are always challenging our position regarding pictures. Each story is different, each terrorist attack is different and we adapt our front page considering that,” Hufnagel told the Guardian by email.

Le Figaro and Nouvel Observateur have also chosen, for the time being, not to follow Le Monde’s example. British media – the Guardian included – continue to publish photographs of people responsible for acts of terrorism.

In the aftermath of the Nice attack, a psychoanalyst, Fethi Benslama, who teaches at Paris Diderot university, suggested on French radio: “Perhaps it is time that there was a pact in the media to no longer publish the names and pictures of the perpetrators of these acts, as it’s a really big boost to their efforts to make themselves world famous, even while their victims are anonymous and will remain anonymous.”

Benslama said this “glorification” encouraged others to carry out attacks, “to gain glory in the eyes of their commanders and their friends”. He added: “They leave their identity cards – they want to be identified very quickly.”


“Benslama is a psychoanalyst who, although a secular thinker, identifies himself as a person of Muslim culture…”

Next, they’ll be adopting BBC standards for reporting Muslim terror attacks.

Germany: Knife-wielding Muslims attack doctor in surgery, cops release say no crime (video)

Did you think a day would go by without Muslims attacking their European hosts? Caught and released same day by German police! h/t Vlad Tepes

More detail via Man Shouting Allahu Akhbar Tried to Behead Surgeon

The incident took place in the town of Troisdorf on Monday morning. Speaking with FOCUS Online, Dr. Attila Tan, the surgeon who was attacked, recounted his horrific experience.

He said: “The patient came in at 10am, accompanied by his girlfriend, who was veiled. He radiated aggression, which increased when I began to treat him,”

The man was released from the practice in mid-July, having undergone treatment for a broken leg, but returned on Monday in pain.

Dr. Tan said: “I explained everything to him, and even showed him exercises he should do. But he didn’t listen to me at all.”

The 19 year old then stormed out of the practice, before returning with his brother and father, who was armed with a knife which had a 30cm serrated blade.

The surgeon was operating on another patient when his wife called for help at the practice’s reception. The men had attacked and insulted Dr. Tan’s wife, one of them throwing a marble bust at her, which narrowly missed.

The father of the man with the broken leg rushed at Dr. Tan, with a knife, and shouted “Allahu akhbar” before threatening to behead the surgeon.

The sons of the attacker then held Dr. Tan down. The doctor told Focus Online: “Their father kept screaming at me — ‘Apologise to my son, get on your knees and kiss his hand’.”

Panic broke out in the practice, with one 82-year-old patient even jumping through the window to escape the violence. Police arrived before the confrontation could escalate as, when the father and sons trio stormed the practice, some patients and colleagues of Dr. Tan had left to notify the authorities.

One witness recalled: “We heard things flying around, and screams and stuff. Then three times ‘Allahu akbar’ was shouted. At that moment I thought, it’s all over. I thought he killed Dr. Tan and his wife.”

Officers arrested the 19 year old and his girlfriend, but the man’s father and brother managed to flee the scene. Accompanied by a lawyer, the pair later presented themselves at the police station on Monday evening. Dr. Tan’s wife had to be hospitalised after witnessing the morning’s events, as she had suffered a heart attack.


Stunning. Americans – if you aren’t yet armed and trained how to shoot under duress, do so. It might save your life in the coming Islamic invasion.

  • Arrest warrant issued after no-show in court
  • Grade-school girl ready to testify

A 49-year-old man reportedly boarded a flight for the United Arab Emirates two days before he was to stand trial in Kennewick on charges of raping and molesting a grade-school girl.

A nationwide arrest warrant was issued this week for Khalid A. Fathey after he was a no-show at his Benton County Superior Court trial.

The U.S. Marshals Service then discovered that Fathey left Seattle on July 23 on a plane bound for Dubai, said Deputy Prosecutor Anita Petra.

She did not know if it was a one-way ticket or round trip.

Fathey was free on his personal recognizance since being charged with the sex crimes in May 2015. He now faces a new charge of bail jumping.

Judge Vic VanderSchoor waited 1  1/2 hours Monday — in case Fathey had car trouble or another problem — before calling off the trial, releasing the jurors and ordering the arrest warrant.

“Needless to say, the victim’s family was very upset by the news,” Petra told the Herald. “They wanted justice in this case and for this case to be over.”

Kennewick attorney Kevin Holt, who was hired by Fathey, said he met with his client for about eight hours on July 21 and then prepared for the trial.

“He assured me that he would be here Monday morning,” Holt said.

Fathey’s brother showed up at Holt’s office as scheduled at 8 a.m. and the two headed to court, but they never heard from Fathey.

Holt said he has not seen an actual report from the Marshals Service that his client fled the country. The brother is supposed to call him with an update on Wednesday afternoon.

Holt said his client is from northern Iraq. Fathey had been in the military and worked with the United States government after the 2003 invasion, he said.

Since Fathey was no longer welcome in Iraq under the new regime, he sought political asylum and came to the United States with his wife and children as political refugees, Holt said.

Fathey and his wife were paid by the state for four years to be full-time caregivers for a Tri-City woman who had medical issues, he said.

Fathey contends the sex crimes did not happen and were made up by the girl’s family. Fathey and his family had to move to Spokane from Kennewick about six months ago because they were afraid for their safety in the Tri-Cities, especially after someone reportedly set fire to their car, said Holt.

“It really is a sad situation where our system has gotten so biased that a person has to fear for his life and would run, as opposed to face justice,” Holt said.

Prosecutors allege the girl’s mother became suspicious in December 2014 when she found the girl and Fathey together, and Fathey “appeared nervous.”

The girl later disclosed to her mother that Fathey allegedly kissed her and touched her sexually several times over a six-month period. Fathey “told (the girl) never to tell or she was going to get in trouble,” documents said.

Before the police were involved, Fathey called his religious leader, who had them sit down together with the girl’s parents, court documents said. Fathey admitted to the inappropriate touching but would not elaborate, documents said.

The girl’s mother fainted during the meeting, and police were called.

Fathey is charged with one count of first-degree rape of a child and two counts of first-degree child molestation. All three counts include the aggravating circumstance that he used a position of trust to commit the crimes.

If somebody sees Fathey in the Tri-Cities, they are asked to call Benton County dispatch at 509-628-0333.

People who have information to pass on about Fathey or the case are encouraged to call the Kennewick Police Department at 509-585-4208.

New Jersey: Mosque takes over church, quickly disrupt neighbors quality of life

Former home of the Richfield Christian Reformed Church – now a mosque and public nuisance

Source: Unhappy Clifton mosque neighbors – Town Government – NorthJersey.com

CLIFTON – A new Richfield mosque’s leadership shot back at fierce critics who claimed its burgeoning congregation created parking and quality of life issues during the month-long Muslim celebration of Ramadan.

The Islamic Center of Passaic County (ICPC) held its grand opening on June 3 at 259 Pershing Road, the former home of the Richfield Christian Reformed Church. In the weeks which followed, incensed residents complained that worshipers tied up nearby residential streets, blocked driveways and, on one occasion, parked in front of a fire hydrant.

A contentious debate spilled over into the Clifton City Council’s July 5 meeting.

“I’ve approached this council three times now and, to date, [received] no answers, no solutions and an enormous amount of lip service,” said Mary Fran Simmons-Falluca. “I am angry.”

Officials countered that City Manager Dominick Villano and Clifton Councilwoman Lauren Murphy have met with the mosque’s decision-makers to rectify the problem.

A Pershing Road resident, Simmons-Falluca said car headlights light up neighborhood homes “like Christmas trees” and that she was unable to get out of her own driveway on Saturday. During last weekend’s end of Ramadan celebration, she said more than 500 congregants converged on the neighborhood which, she said, “without a doubt” exceeds the volume the area can accommodate.

According to ICPC officials, the mosque has formed a volunteer crew to self-police anyone blocking driveways or fire hydrants on Pershing.

“The problem for the mosque is that [Richfield Christian Reformed Church] was a sleepy hollow because it was dwindling and dwindling and dwindling in numbers,” Mayor James Anzaldi said. “So, now it’s a vibrant congregation and we’re in need of solving a parking issue there.”

The mayor said the City’s administration and council members have discussed the possibility of constructing a parking lot on the mosque’s three-acre property.

Councilman Joe Kolodziej said the municipal body hears and agrees with the complaints residents registered but stipulated government is “a large wheel” that turns slowly.

“Once it gets moving you have momentum but that takes a lot of time, consideration and effort,” he added. “So, to all the people who think that this council is not listening to the complaints I can assure you that that is not the case. We share those concerns.”

Kolodziej opined the over-parking in the area is an example of the new house of worship experiencing “growing pains.”

The Islamic group’s outreach coordinator, Salaheddin Mustafa, contended there should no longer be an overflow of parked cars since Ramadan ended. He said the ICPC expects Ramadan to present a “one-month” issue each year.

“But, we want to be good neighbors,” said Mustafa, whose Donna Drive home is a few blocks from the mosque’s property. “I want that neighborhood to be quiet as well and I don’t want my property value to go down either.”

Mustafa said the group is “willing to do anything” to resolve the problem but prefaced that the community must trust the Islamic organization. He added that anyone who parks in front of a fire hydrant is “an idiot who should be ticketed and towed” but stipulated that the mosque should not be blamed for the mistake of one individual.

The tone of Tuesday’s meeting escalated during the public recognition portion. Continue reading

Muslims more outraged over Fireman Sam cartoon than daily Islamic terror attacks

No Muslim outrage over 84 dead and 200 wounded in Nice, a pregnant woman hacked to death in Germany or a priest beheaded in Normandy – to name just a few recent deadly events by Muslims. But an old cartoon – that’s outrageous.

Muslims think the blank piece of paper in a cartoon is a page from the deadly Koran

Source: Cartoon chiefs apologise after Fireman Sam character is shown STANDING on page of the Koran | Daily Mail Online

The makers of Fireman Sam have ‘apologised unreservedly’ after an episode showed a character standing on a page of the Koran.

Eagled-eyed viewers claim the episode ‘Troubled Waters’ of the children’s television classic is Islamophobic because it showed bumbling character ‘Elvis’ disrespecting the Muslim holy book.

Channel 5, which aired the episode last month, has removed it from its online catch-up service.

The scene begins when Elvis takes a tumble holding a tray of tea when he slides on a piece of paper on the floor.

Pages of scripture then fly up into the air as they, and the character, come crashing to the floor.

Twitter users identified the pages as from the Muslim holy book, the Koran.

According to social media users one page shows verses 13-26 of chapter 67 of the ancient work.

A spokeswoman for the multinational firm Mattel, which owns the show’s makers Hit Entertainment, said ‘It has been bought to our attention that in an episode of Fireman Sam (Series 9, Episode 7), an image of the Quran is briefly depicted.

‘The page was intended to show illegible text and we deeply regret this error. We sincerely apologise for any distress or offense it may have caused.

‘We will no longer be working with the animation studio responsible for this mistake.

‘In addition, we are taking immediate action to remove this episode from circulation and we are reviewing our content production procedures to ensure this never happens again.

‘Again, we apologise unreservedly to our viewers.’

Mattel also owns the popular brands Thomas the Tank Engine and Bob the Builder.

Channel 5 removed the episode, which they broadcast on June 28, because of the allegations.

The episode has only just come under the spotlight after it was first broadcast in 2014.

A spokesman for Channel 5 told the news website Middle East Eye there were no plans to air the episode again.

MailOnline did contact Channel 5 for further comment but a spokeswoman declined.

The original show started on the BBC in 1987 and finished in the mid-1990s. Channel 5 then bought the rights to broadcast a new version from 2008.


Most viewers could care less.

Channel 5 and Mattel are the real Islamophobes if there is such a thing. They are bending over backwards in fear of Muslims who will wage jihad and kill innocent people over a children’s cartoon that they suspect has an image of the Koran – a book full of hate. They yanked the episode, fired the firm that made it and reviewing content production to ensure it never happens again. WTF?

Pro-jihad Youtube seems to have wiped that episode off of playlists too.

California: Muslim earns 15 years in prison for trying to join ISIS

A California man who aspired to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Syria and lied to get a replacement American passport to head overseas was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison and supervised release for life.

The case against Adam Dandach, 22, is one in a series involving young men and women in states ranging from California to Georgia who have been charged with trying to assist ISIS and other terrorist groups.

Dandach, an Orange County native, pleaded guilty last year to attempting to provide material support to a terror group and lying on his passport application. Federal prosecutors had sought a 20-year sentence.

The U.S. “faces significant threat from terrorists’ acts planned or committed by homegrown violent extremists like (the) defendant who become radicalized online and seek to engage in terror and support groups like ISIL,” federal prosecutors wrote in court filings, using an alternative acronym for ISIS.

Before ordering the sentence, U.S. District Judge James V. Selna in Santa Ana called Dandach’s conduct “serious” and said terrorist activity in any form is a threat to the United States and other countries.

The thin Dandach appeared in court wearing shackles and a tan jail jumpsuit and said he had dissociated himself from the person he used to be.

“Pardon me for my poor judgment,” he told the court. “I believe it should be understood that I am just a hollow shell of what I used to be.”

Dandach’s mother sobbed in the courtroom during the hearing.

Dandach had praised terrorists and promoted their lectures and videos online before planning to go to Syria, federal prosecutors wrote.

After Dandach’s mother took his passport to keep him from traveling to Syria, CBS Los Angeles reports. He lied to get a replacement – saying he had accidentally tossed out his old passport – then booked a trip for July 2014.

He was stopped at John Wayne Airport by FBI agents who found his smartphone loaded with jihadi songs supporting ISIS fighters, maps of areas the group controlled, and Twitter updates on fighting by the terrorist group.

Prosecutors say Dandach told the agents he planned to pledge allegiance to the Islamic State and train with weapons to defend himself.


Supervised release for life? Unless he dies an early death this is going to be costly for California taxpayers. It might be more prudent to let them go and, having renounced their U.S. citizenship in doing so, never let them return.
