POCATELLO, Idaho – An ISU student is accused of entering multiple dorm rooms and inappropriately touching the occupants over a two-week period.

Sultan Bamoallem, a freshman finance major from Saudi Arabia, faces multiple misdemeanor charges including trespassing, battery and stalking.

Pocatello police said on Feb 23, Bamoallem entered a female student’s dorm in Turner Hall. Police said the student woke up to a partially-clad Bamoallem touching her back. He was charged with unlawful entry and battery.

“That’s really scary. As a female, that makes me really scared,” said ISU student Kelci McDermott.

“I found it kind of troubling,” said Rosco Tillman, who lives in Turner Hall.

On March 10, police said they got a report of Bamoallem following a student into a women’s restroom around 4 p.m.

On March 11, they responded to Nichols Hall just before 1 a.m. where they said Bamoallem had gained access by telling a student he lived there and had forgotten his key card.

At that point, ISU banned Bamoallem from campus, but officers said they found him later that night on the seventh floor of Turner Hall.

On March 13, police said Bamoallem attempted to camp out in the police department lobby, after which they say he groped a cleaning lady.

Officers said they later found Bamoallem at Rendezvous Center, where they said he had entered three separate dorms, each time touching the male and female occupants on the cheeks and upper torso.

“That’s a little creepy and not very cool at all,” said ISU student Kadon Miles.

“I usually leave the window open and the door open because it gets really hot,” said Parks.

Parks said she woke up to Bamoallem lightly stroking up and down her back.

“I kind of sat and I looked at him and I said, ‘Oh, what are you doing in here?’” Parks said.

Parks said Bamoallem claimed to be her roommate’s boyfriend and said that he had gone to the wrong bed by mistake.

It was then she noticed he wasn’t wearing any pants. She also noticed something else — on her roommate’s bed.

“There was actually a condom wrapper sitting on her pillow,” said Parks.

That’s when Parks said she began to piece things together.

“I realized that he was — whenever I woke up he was … facing my bed and touching somewhere towards his genital area,” Parks said. “It kind of freaked me out to think what could have happened if I didn’t wake up.”

But Parks said what stood out most was how the man remained calm — even confident — the entire time he was in her dorm.

“He didn’t think he was doing anything wrong the way he was talking to me,” said Parks. “He was kind of like, ‘Hey, I’m in your room and I’ve got this condom ready.’”


Muslim rape gangs could have assaulted ONE MILLION young girls in UK

via Child sex abuse gangs could have assaulted ONE MILLION youngsters in the UK – Mirror Online.

There could be up to a million victims of child sexual exploitation in the UK, it is feared.

Rotherham’s Labour MP Sarah Champion describes it as a “national disaster” and is demanding a taskforce to fight the “horror.”

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Mirror the shaken MP has told how she ‘nearly lost her mind’ after victims turned to her for help – unable to trust the police or local council.

She is currently getting an average of 10 victims a week coming to her for help.

Fighting back tears she told how she feared having a nervous breakdown worried about failing the “amazing women” and her horror after finding out a manual for grooming existed for paedophiles.

The MP was speaking after the Government announced they were taking over Rotherham Council for a “fresh start” and sending five commissioners to run the troubled authority.

Inspectors were called in after the Jay Report last August revealed the borough had let down 1,400 victims of child sexual exploitation.

“The day after the first report broke the victims started coming to me. They couldn’t go to the police, they couldn’t go to the council. So who do you go to?

“For the first three weeks I generally thought I was losing my mind. I nearly lost my mind because of the level of depravity and horror.

“Listening to what these, now women, had gone through and how they were just left discarded, to flounder on their own.

“It was utterly mind-blowing and then the problem I had was that I was getting new cases coming to me, ones that hadn’t been reported which they wanted me to report. But I didn’t know who I could trust in the police to report it.

“There was this parallel universe going on and it is mindblowing.

“I generally thought I was getting close to having a nervous breakdown because I couldn’t process these two worlds going on and that anybody in a professional capacity would not have acted about what was going on. It’s obscene.”

Talking about her concerns of corruption within the police force she pointed out the IPCC started their investigation within a month they had suspended 14 police officers.

And she said one senior police officer told her they didn’t know why she was so surprised, telling Sarah: ‘Paedophiles become teachers and people that prey on the vulnerable go into the police.”

Talking of the cases she has encountered, she told of one horrific case when a girl from Rotherham was traced to a terraced street in Blackpool by youth worker Jane Senior who she employs.

“She knew where the girl was because of the queue of men down the street and up the stairs,” The MP said.

She said she turned to the Government five months ago to ask for emergency funding for her town’s victims to help the rebuild their lives.

“I went to see David Cameron this week and he said he would look into it.

“It feels like the Government is leaving Rotherham to die. It feels like we’re not on their doorstep so it doesn’t matter.”

She welcomed experts coming into Rotherham to help them but said the Government should have stepped in after the Jay Report, six months ago.

“We would have been able to move forward as a town much quicker,” she said.

“There are hundreds of thousands and I think there could be up to a million victims of exploitation nationwide, including right now. Girls in the process of being groomed,” she said.

“I have met people from all over the country.

“If you just think we know at least four big cases each with a couple of thousand each in smallest towns. It’s extraordinary.

“I was talking to sixth formers on Monday and all of the girls there had either personal or direct experience of people trying to manipulate them through sexting. You have online grooming.

“It’s seriously a nationwide issue.

This week she met David Cameron to ask for funds to help support Rotherham’s victims and plead for a taskforce.

“I want a national taskforce because unless we get that, what’s happened in Rochdale, what’s happened here, will just go on. The nightmare will go on.

Sarah Champion became Rotherham MP in 2012 after facing a protest walkout by members furious an Asian councillor had not been selected.

She says that attitude was indicative of the problems in the town.

Asian is British code language for Muslim. And therein lies the problems: Muslim immigration and government’s fear of dealing with the Muslim population.


Iranians chant ‘Death to America’, leaders say will ‘Raise Banner Of Islam Over White House’

This is who Obama negotiates with, removes from terror reports and to whom Obama sends holiday greetings. h/t Linda

via Khamenei calls ‘Death to America’ as Kerry hails progress on nuke deal

Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for “Death to America” on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity” for a nuclear deal and a better future, and as US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.

Khamenei told a crowd in Tehran that Iran would not capitulate to Western demands. When the crowd started shouting, “Death to America,” the ayatollah responded: “Of course yes, death to America, because America is the original source of this pressure.

“They insist on putting pressure on our dear people’s economy,” he said, referring to economic sanctions aimed at halting Iran’s nuclear program. “What is their goal? Their goal is to put the people against the system,” he said. “The politics of America is to create insecurity,” he added, referring both to US pressure on Iran and elsewhere in the region.

More via Khamenei: We Must Instill Every Day The Culture Of Martyrdom And Jihad In Iranian Society

In his February 26, 2015 statements, Khamenei said:

“It is necessary to praise the martyrs and to keep them from being forgotten, and to keep the ethical values [embodied by] their memory from becoming obsolete. Gatherings that honor the martyrs are in effect a continuation of the movement of jihad and martyrdom. Every day in Iranian society, we must disseminate the martyrs’ memory, and the milestones of their lives. If the memory of the martyrs and the value of martyrdom are presented in society as eternal truth, defeat loses its meaning, and this nation will move fearlessly along the path of progress.

“It is vital to keep the martyrs’ names and the culture of martyrdom alive. This is one of the country’s basic needs. The culture of martyrdom is a culture of self-sacrifice for the sake of long-term goals – goals shared by the entire nation and by all mankind. This culture is precisely the opposite of Western individualist culture, that measures everything according to individual and material considerations. If the culture of sacrifice and martyrdom spreads through a society, that society will progress and will never stop or retreat.”

And Khamenei’s Representative In Qods Force: ‘We Will Not Rest Until We Raise The Banner Of Islam Over The White House’

Addressing a February 26, 2015 ceremony attended by families of Iranian martyrs who fell on the Syrian front, Ali Shirazi, Khamenei’s representative in the IRGC’s Qods Force, said:

“We will stand fast against the world of arrogance. We will not rest until we have raised the banner of Islam over the White House. The Islamic nation is determined to enter the arena with all its force, backed by God’s will and his grace, and to stand fast against the world of arrogance. They will not suppress us with sanctions and threats. You did not succeed in harming the regime on the day it emerged, and now that the regime is 36 years old, you, the enemies of Islam, must expect and realize that every day [you] will be beaten, across the world.”


Report: Christianity Most Persecuted Faith Worldwide

via Report: Christianity Most Persecuted Faith Worldwide | CNS News.

Americans take religious liberty for granted. It is the First Freedom, guaranteed by the First Amendment. But four of five people around the world lack the freedom to worship and live faithfully. And the percentage of the world’s population lacking religious liberty recently edged upward. Attacks on Jews hit a recent peak. Even Americans cannot afford to take their freedoms for granted.

The Pew Research Center, with Peter Henne as lead researcher, recently issued its latest study on religious liberty. The report makes for a sad read. Many organizations address religious persecution, which occurs in virtually every Muslim and authoritarian state, plus a diverse mix of other nations. Pew also assesses equally threatening social antagonism, ranging from discrimination to hostility to violence.

In some nations governments take the lead in suppressing the faithful, imposing a range of restrictions backed by the state. Examples include bans on particular faiths, prohibitions on conversion, and restrictions on religious practice. In other countries the people make their societies unfriendly to minority beliefs, imposing a wide range of less formal sanctions. Such behavior includes harassment, intimidation, and violence, including murder. The overall global environment to religious faith is hostile. Concluded the study: “restrictions on religion were high or very high in 39 percent of countries. Because some of these countries (like China and India) are very populous, about 5.5 billion people (77 percent of the world’s population) were living in countries with a high or very high overall level of restrictions on religion in 2013, up from 76 percent in 2012 and 68 percent as of 2007.”

At the top of the list for failing on both fronts are Burma/Myanmar, Egypt, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Russia, “where both the government and society at large impose numerous limits on religious beliefs and practices.” Individually the global rise was led by the People’s Republic of China, with government persecution, and India, with high social antagonism.

The worst nations combine intrusive state restrictions with widespread social intolerance. Among the 25 most populous countries, with three-quarters of the world’s population, which score high or very high in both categories are: Bangladesh, Burma, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, and Turkey. Ethiopia, Germany, and Vietnam are borderline. As always, Islam’s role is significant: Six of the top 11 are Muslim and another (Nigeria) has a slight Muslim preponderance.

Particularly disturbing for Americans is Pew’s rating for the U.S. America was 1.6 and 1.9 in government restrictions and social hostility in 2007. The first jumped to 3.7 in 2012 before falling back a bit to 3.0 in 2013. The latter remained unchanged in 2012 but then jumped to 3.1, second only to Brazil in the Americas. Obviously, one can argue methodology. But Americans committed to religious liberty should take note and seek to reverse the dangerous slide away from vigorous freedom of faith.


South Carolina: Bill aims to keep sharia law from making inroads

via Bill aims to keep sharia law from making inroads in South Carolina – Post and Courier.

COLUMBIA — South Carolina isn’t known as a hotbed of radical Islam, but one state lawmaker isn’t taking any chances.

A bill sponsored by Rep. Chip Limehouse, R-Charleston, aims to keep sharia law out state courts by outlawing its use as a defense.

“Our country is at war with radical Islam,” Limehouse said. “We’ve had Americans with their heads lopped off.”

He said the state and the country at large should push back, even if Islamic law isn’t an immediate threat.

“You can’t predict the future,” he said. “You never know what might happen.”

You can, however, view Islam’s path of destruction throughout history and see where the future is headed.

Sharia law is sometimes used in Muslim communities to settle contract disputes or family matters, although American courts are not bound by those rules. The terrorist group ISIS has used the 14th century laws to justify beheading of prisoners in Syria and Iraq. That behavior has been condemned by Muslims around the world, who say the group is misusing ancient texts and laws to justify their own brand of terrorism.

Limehouse conceded that he knows of no instances in South Carolina in which anyone has attempted to inject sharia law into legal proceedings, and another dismissed Limehouse’s bill as Republican fear-mongering to people in tin foil hats

Sharia creeps in many ways, not just the courts. Witness the Richland County jail. It changed its policy to allow Muslim women to wear supposedly religious head coverings after one Muslim woman complained to a known Muslim terror group. Or the mosque blaring out calls to prayer five times a day.

Limehouse cited the Center for Security Policy, a conservative Washington, D.C.-based think tank, that has prompted states around the country to introduce laws banning the use of foreign or sharia laws. Those states are Tennessee, Louisiana, Arizona, Kansas, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Washington, Alabama and Florida, according to the center.

“(E)ven institutions like our judiciary can be influenced — and potentially subverted — by foreign legal codes and practices, to the grave detriment of our nation and liberties,” the center wrote on its website. The research center said it found 146 cases in 32 states where sharia law was used as a legal argument.

Rep. Greg Delleney, R-Chester, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said he expects the bill to pass.

Most attorneys and judges don’t know what sharia law is, said Rep. Todd Rutherford, a Columbia Democrat and defense attorney who sits on the Judiciary Committee.

It is not an acceptable defense in a courtroom and judges, courts and attorneys are not bound by it, he said. “When we do stuff like this, there is a segment of the population that when you talk about aliens and mind control, they do believe in tin foil hats,” Rutherford said. “It goes to show you how deep (Republicans) are reaching to play to people’s fears. Nobody even knows what he’s talking about.”

Hamid Khan, an Islamic law expert who teaches at the University of South Carolina, said Oklahoma’s law was challenged and overturned by federal court, in part because it violated the First Amendment right to free speech.

Jeremy Borden wants readers to believe South Carolina is so far removed from the threat of sharia, yet it has a sharia law expert from Pakistan teaching at its university. One that claims banning sharia law violates Muslims right to free speech.

South Carolina may be more of a hotbed than Jeremy Borden leads his readers to believe.

Update via Holy Islamville; South Carolina and Georgia propose Shari’a ban

What may have South Carolina lawmakers concerned is the establishment of the unincorporated community of Islamville located in rural York County.

With the Muslim enclave officially titled the Holy Khanqah Gilania Sufi Lodge, Islamville is tucked away deep in the woods of the state’s heavily forested Piedmont region. It was eventually uncovered in a series of investigative reports by WLTX-TV of Columbia, SC that the 34 acre hamlet was initially founded by Sheikh Mubarik Ali Gilani, who also happens to be classified by the U.S. government as the leader of the international jihadist terrorist organization Jamaat ul-Fuqra (a.k.a. The Community of the Impoverished). As seen in the video report, Gilani states to his followers, “Life is becoming more hard for Muslims; therefore, every Muslim man or woman should learn to defend himself or herself. We are establishing training camps. You can reach us in South Carolina or Pakistan, wherever we are.”

Texas: Imam of sharia court refuses to back bill affirming American law

via Irving City Council backs state bill Muslims say targets them | Dallas Morning News.

IRVING — The intense national spotlight on Islam has shifted to Irving, where Mayor Beth Van Duyne has accused mosque leaders of creating separate laws for Muslims and the City Council voted Thursday to endorse a state bill that Muslims say targets their faith.

The dispute has made Van Duyne a hero among a fringe movement that believes Muslims — a tiny fraction of the U.S. population — are plotting to take over American culture and courts.

“It fuels anti-Islamic hysteria,” said Zia Sheikh, imam at the Islamic Center of Irving. “Her whole point was to rile up her supporters. … The problem is we become the whipping boys.”

The mayor stands by her statements, including an interview with former Fox News host Glenn Beck last month, when she said Sheikh and other imams were “bypassing American courts” by offering to mediate disputes among their worshippers according to an Islamic code called Shariah.

The mediation is advertised as voluntary, nonbinding and in harmony with the law.

But it has led Van Duyne to back a bill by state Rep. Jeff Leach, R-Plano, that would forbid judges from using foreign law in their rulings.

While the bill does not mention religion, Leach has singled out the Islamic mediation panel as a “problem” it will solve. The wording is largely identical to that in a previous bill pitched by another lawmaker as a way to stop the influence of “large populations of Middle Easterners.”

Muslims in hijabs, burqas and business suits packed City Hall on Thursday, voicing protests before the council endorsed the bill in a 5-4 vote.

“This bill does not reference Shariah, Islam or even religion. It has nothing to do with preventing any tribunal,” Van Duyne told the crowd. “Why anyone would feel this is hatred or bigotry is absolutely beyond me.”

The Islamic Tribunal, a panel of Dallas-area imams, offers to mediate disputes between Muslims for a fee.

Catholic dioceses and Jewish synagogues have run similar tribunals for centuries. But the Muslim version is portrayed on websites as the country’s first “Shariah court.”

“This is how it starts,” a writer warned, conflating the service with “vicious, misogynistic, and brutal” systems in other countries.

While the tribunal is headquartered in Dallas, blog posts around the country pegged its home as Irving: the purported ground zero in a Muslim takeover of the U.S. legal system.

Irving’s perceived link went viral with a February Facebook post in which Van Duyne vowed to contact state legislators and “fight with every fiber of my being” if the group was violating basic rights.

She had not spoken to any of the tribunal’s organizers at the time, nor before her half-hour interview on Beck’s Internet show.

“Equal treatment under the law doesn’t seem to exist,” Van Duyne told Beck. “I think you need to put your foot down and say this is America, we have laws here already. If you want to consult, if you want to arbitrate, that is well within our law. … I’ve got no problem with it. But setting up a separate court, setting up separate law is not anything — .”

Beck cut her off at that point: “This is an actual court?”

“Correct,” Van Duyne said.

Van Duyne later told The Dallas Morning News she based her comments on the Islamic Tribunal’s website, which referenced religious courts in Islamic history and called the imams “judges,” but clearly advertised itself as “a mediation and nonbinding arbitration firm.”

The mayor’s stand against the tribunal made her a celebrity in online circles. Her Facebook page filled with praise and links to headlines like “Texas Mayor Shuts Down ‘Shariah Court’ in Heroic Way.”

Worried residents flooded City Hall with calls.

“I was responding to rumors about a Shariah court in Irving,” Van Duyne said. “My response was to answer questions brought up by a number of my constituents.”

The mayor finally met Muslim leaders late last month. Van Duyne brought Texas House members Rodney Anderson, R-Grand Prairie, and Matt Rinaldi, R-Irving, with her.

The mayor said Sheikh asked for an apology and retraction of her Facebook post. Sheikh said he simply “asked her to clarify a statement … which seemed very Islamophobic.”

“She flat-out refused,” he said. “She said, ‘My statement wasn’t inflammatory in any way, shape or form.’”

Rinaldi then asked the imam to support American Laws for American Courts.

“He said, ‘If you support this bill, it will ease a lot of tensions [and assure people] you are not here to change the system. You’re not here to change the constitution,’” Sheikh said.

But it was the imam’s turn to refuse. “We don’t care about the bill,” Sheikh said. “It’s not going to affect us in any way, shape or form. The bottom line is the foundation of this bill is anti-Islamic.”

Canada: Two Muslims who plotted to derail NYC-Montreal train guilty on terror charges

Nary a day goes by without another arrest or conviction of Muslims involved in trying to kill non-Muslims. via Via Rail plot trial: Raed Jaser, Chiheb Esseghaier found guilty on several terror charges – Toronto – CBC News.

Raed Jaser and Chiheb Esseghaier, two men accused of plotting to derail a Via passenger train travelling between Canada and the U.S., have been found guilty of a series of terror-related charges.

Esseghaier was found guilty of all charges against him while Jaser was convicted on all but one charge. After 10 days of deliberation, the jury said it was “irrevocably deadlocked” on the charge against Jaser of “conspiring to interfere with transportation facilities for the benefit of a terrorist group.”

But Judge Michael Code told jurors he would accept their unanimous decision on the other charges.

Among other charges, both men were found guilty of conspiring to commit murder for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with a terrorist group.

Jaser’s lawyer had argued that his client was only pretending to be interested in the plan as part of an elaborate scheme to extract money from Esseghaier and the undercover officer.

Both men could face maximum punishment of life in prison.

The lead prosecutor Croft Michaelson said it was an overwhelming case in terms of evidence against the two men. But he said it was also a difficult and legally complex case, which is why it took the jurors 10 days to come to their verdicts.

Asked about the accused, Michaelson said he would describe them as “real serious public dangers.”

The court heard conversations in which Jaser and Esseghaier discussed their ideologies, the alleged plot to derail a Via Rail train travelling between New York and Toronto and other ideas for potential attacks, including Jaser’s alleged “sniper plot” idea, which would have been in retaliation for Canadian military actions in Muslim countries.

Jurors were also shown aerial surveillance of the two accused and the undercover officer scouting a railway bridge in September 2012 in broad daylight as several trains passed by only metres away.

Their presence on the bridge drew attention, and the men were stopped after they had returned to their vehicle by uniformed Toronto police officers who were unaware the men were under surveillance. The FBI agent told officers they were sightseeing and the men were given a warning.

Jaser, a Canadian permanent resident of Palestinian descent, pleaded not guilty. He did not testify in his own defence.

Esseghaier, a Tunisian national who was pursuing a PhD in Montreal when he and Jaser were arrested in April 2013, chose not to participate in his trial, because he wants to be judged by the rules of the Qur’an.
