Ohio: Clueless judge releases Muslim terror suspect on bond

Over the objections of federal prosecutors, a judge agreed Monday to release on bond one of four men charged with providing financial support to al-Qaeda.



Sultane Roome Salim, 40, of Columbus is to be released from the Lucas County jail once his mother posts a $500,000 property bond that includes her home and a commercial building in Cambridge, Ohio.

Judge James Knepp, U.S. District magistrate, ordered that Mr. Salim surrender his passport and be released to the of his mother, Shakila Salim, and his wife of nearly 15 years, Mehreen Sultan. Ms. Sultan, a citizen of Pakistan, also surrendered her passport and the passports of the couple’s three children.

Mr. Salim is charged with conspiracy to provide and conceal material support and resources to terrorists, providing material support and resources to terrorists, and conspiracy to obstruct justice. He was indicted by a federal grand jury in Toledo that also named his brother, Asif Ahmed Salim, 35, as well as Yahya Farooq Mohammad, 37, and Ibrahim Zubair Mohammad, 36.

Prosecutors allege the group conspired to travel to Yemen to give thousands of dollars to Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaeda leader who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in 2011.

Michael Tobin, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, said Asif Salim and Yahya Mohammad, both residents of the United Arab Emirates, were arrested overseas and flown to Virginia. Ibrahim Mohammad was arrested in Texas.

All three are being held behind bars awaiting transfer to Toledo.

Mr. Salim’s wife and his mother both took the witness stand at Monday’s detention hearing, assuring the court they would make certain Mr. Salim abided by the terms and conditions of his release and would contact authorities if he did not.

Under questioning by Christos Georgalis, an assistant U.S. attorney, Ms. Sultan said she knew nothing about the charges her husband faced, that she never heard him talk about working with his brother to provide funds to al-Qaeda, although she had heard him mention al-Awlaki in the past.

Judge Knepp told Ms. Sultan she would be in “a heckuva spot” if her husband violated the terms of his bond. She would be obligated to report him to the court, he said, and if she failed to do that, she could be charged with contempt of court and jailed.

“If that sounds scary, it should,” he told her.

Mr. Salim’s court-appointed attorney, Cherrefe Kadri, assured the court her client would comply.

This is a very well-educated man who has a lot of skills,” Ms. Kadri said, explaining that Mr. Salim is a chemical engineer who most recently worked as a financial analyst.

She said that since his arrest, he has been fired from his job and the family is being evicted from their apartment in Columbus. Ms. Kadri said he is willing to live with his mother in Cambridge where his wife and three children also plan to live.

Among the other conditions of bond, Judge Knepp ordered that Mr. Salim have no contact with his three co-defendants.

“I can’t imagine that a man would violate the terms and conditions and put his mom in that kind of peril, but above and beyond the property that your mother is posting, both she and the mother of your children are putting their very liberty at stake by undertaking this obligation,” Judge Knepp said.

“I can’t imagine that a man would subject his own mother or the mother of his children to some kind of peril in furtherance of his selfish interests no matter what may be guiding them,” he said.

Clearly the judge has no clue about Islam and how men regard their wives (plural) and children.

Reader Dee informs us that the attorney for the terror suspect is President of the executive committee of the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo. How convenient. We now have mosque executives representing Muslim terror suspects. If he were a member of CAIR, representing Muslim terrorists would be expected.

Also worth asking yet again, is why two of the Muslim terror suspects, both residents of the United Arab Emirates, who were arrested overseas were then flown to Virginia?

Why are we importing hard-core Muslim terrorists to the U.S.?

They will recruit and teach jihad in our prisons. They may never be deported and could be released on our streets. Sheer lunacy.

Oklahoma: CAIR Client Arrested as Part of ISIS Cell in Turkey

A man, who just two years ago was the poster boy for the far-Left media’s attacks against the U.S. government’s no-fly list for “unfairly” targeting Muslims, finds himself and several family members sitting in a Turkish prison — arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell.

It’s a long way from 2013 when Saadiq Long’s cause was being championed by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Glenn Greenwald, and Mother Jones, and was being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) terror front.

His story got considerable media attention when his CAIR media representatives here pushed the story that Long wanted to return to his native Oklahoma from his current home in Qatar to visit his ailing mother but couldn’t because he was on the TSA’s no-fly list. They said his case represented institutional “Islamophobia.”

Long’s cause got international attention when Glenn Greenwald published an article at The Guardian saying that Long was “effectively exiled from his own country.” Kevin Drum of Mother Jones branded it the “Kafkaesque World of the No-Fly List.” CAIR has 22 article entries related to Long’s case on its website.

After several months of wrangling between his CAIR attorneys and the Department of Homeland Security, Long was temporarily removed from the no-fly list and allowed to return to Oklahoma.

Once home, however, he was still subject to FBI surveillance according to claims he made during a press conference with his CAIR handlers.

After an incident with local police and the FBI, Long was apparently placed back on the no-fly list, preventing his return to Qatar.

That prompted even more outrage from the far-Left media and garnered him an appearance with his CAIR handler on Chris Hayes’ MSNBC show:

Glenn Greenwald used Saadiq Long’s MSNBC appearance to get back in on the action:

Eventually, Long boarded a bus to Mexico and got on a flight there to return home to Qatar.

U.S. and Turkish officials confirmed Long’s arrest to PJ Media, saying that he was arrested along with eight others operating along the Turkish-Syrian border. So far, no U.S. media outlet has reported on his arrest.

Long’s Facebook page has not been updated for several months. The last entry on his wife’s Facebook page was October 23.

I have emailed Long’s CAIR handler, Adam Soltani, asking for comment. An email to his attorney Gadeir Abbas was returned as undeliverable.

Exposed: Obama’s Love for Jihadis and Hate for Christians

Source: Exposed: Obama’s Love for Jihadis and Hate for Christians | By Raymond Ibrahim

Obama recently lashed out against the idea of giving preference to Christian refugees, describing it as “shameful”: “That’s not American. That’s not who we are. We don’t have religious tests to our compassion,” loftily added the American president.

Accordingly, the administration is still determined to accept 10,000 more Syrian refugees, almost all of whom will be Muslim, despite the fact that some are ISIS operatives, while many share the ISIS worldview (as explained below).

Yet right as Obama was grandstanding about “who we are,” statistics were released indicating that “the current [refugee] system overwhelmingly favors Muslim refugees. Of the 2,184 Syrian refugees admitted to the United States so far, only 53 are Christians while 2,098 are Muslim.”

Aside from the obvious—or to use Obama’s own word, “shameful”—pro-Muslim, anti-Christian bias evident in these statistics, there are a number of other troubling factors as well.

For starters, the overwhelming majority of “refugees” being brought into the United States are not just Muslim, but Sunnis—the one Muslim sect that the Islamic State is not persecuting and displacing.  After all, ISIS—and most Islamic terrorist groups (Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, Al Shabaab, Hamas, et al)—are all Sunnis.   Even Obama was arguably raised a Sunni.

In this context, how are Sunnis “refugees”?  Who are they fleeing?  Considering that the Obama administration defines refugees as people “persecuted by their government,” most of those coming into the U.S. either aided or at least sympathized with the jihad against Assad (even if they only revealed their true colors when the time was right).

Simply put, some 98% of all refugees belong to the same Islamic sect that ISIS does.  And many of them, unsurprisingly, share the same vision—such as the “refugees” who recently murdered some 120 people in France, or the “refugees” who persecute Christian minorities in European camps and settlements.  (None of this should be surprising considering that Al Azhar—the Sunni world’s most prestigious university of Islamic law, which co-hosted Obama’s 2009 “A New Beginning” speech—was recently exposed as teaching and legitimizing all the atrocities that ISIS commits.)

As for those who are being raped, slaughtered, and enslaved based on their non-Sunni religious identity—not by Assad, but by so-called “rebel” forces (AKA jihadis)—many of them are being denied refuge in America.

Thus, although Christians were approximately 10 percent of Syria’s population in 2011, only one percent has been granted refuge in America. This despite the fact that, from a strictly humanitarian point of view—and humanitarianism is the chief reason being cited in accepting refugees, Obama’s “compassion”—Christians should receive priority simply because they are the most persecuted group in the Middle East.

At the hands of the Islamic State, which supposedly precipitated the migrant crisis, Christians have been repeatedly forced to renounce Christ or die; they have been enslaved and raped; and they have had more than 400 of their churches desecrated and destroyed.[i]

ISIS has committed no such atrocities against fellow Sunnis, they who are being accepted into the U.S. in droves.  Nor does Assad enslave, behead, or crucify people based on their religious identity (despite Jeb Bush’s recent, and absurd, assertions).

Obama should further prioritize Christian refugees simply because his own policies in the Middle East have directly exacerbated their plight.  Christians and other religions minorities did not flee from Bashar Assad’s Syria, Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, or Muamar Gaddafi’s Libya.  Their systematic persecution began only after the U.S. interfered in those nations in the name of “democracy” but succeeding in only uncorking the jihadi terrorists that the dictators had long kept suppressed.

Incidentally, prioritizing Christian refugees would not merely be an altruistic gesture or the U.S. government’s way of righting its wrongs: rather it brings many benefits to America’s security. (Unlike Muslims or even Yazidis, Christians are easily assimilated into Western nations due to the shared Christian heritage, and they bring trustworthy language and cultural skills that are beneficial to the “war on terror.”)

Finally, no one should be shocked by these recent revelations of the Obama administration’s pro-Muslim and anti-Christian policies.   They fit a clear and established pattern of religious bias within his administration.  For example:

Most recently, as the White House works on releasing a statement accusing ISIS of committing genocide against  religious minorities such as Yazidis — who are named and recognized in the statement — Obama officials are arguing that Christians “do not appear to meet the high bar set out in the genocide treaty” and thus likely not be mentioned.

In short, and to use the president’s own words, it is the Obama administration’s own foreign and domestic policies that are “shameful,” that are “not American,” and that do not represent “who we are.”


Video: Father battered with pickaxe for ‘converting from Islam to Christianity’

Not in Pakistan but in the UK. via VIDEO: Father battered with PICKAXE for ‘converting from Islam to Christianity’ | Daily ExpressTHIS is the moment a father-of-six was battered by hooded thugs with a PICKAXE in an attack he claims was sparked by his move from Islam to Christianity.

Nissar Hussain, 49, suffered a shattered knee cap and broken hand when he was attacked outside his home in what police are treating as a religious hate crime.

He was hit 13 times with a pickaxe and repeatedly punched and kicked when the two attackers leapt upon him from a car as he left his house in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

But now Mr Hussain claims the savage beating was the result of his move away from Islam, and says him and his family have been forced to live “under a climate of fear”.

Mr Hussain, a nurse, said he became a target after he converted to Christianity in 1996 and his family appeared in a Channel 4 TV documentary about mistreatment of Muslim converts in 2008.

Since then he claims his family were driven away from a previous home by hardline Muslim residents, have had eggs thrown at their windows and even been attacked in the streets.

Speaking about the attack from his hospital bed, he said: “The Muslim community are largely decent people but because of the taboo of converting to Christianity we are classed by them as scum and second-class citizens.

“Over the years our lives have been subjugated and stripped of any dignity.

“Our lives have been jeopardised and subjugated, we have been forced to live under a climate of fear, this is not England.

“I grew up in in to a free decent country accepting British values and the British rule of law.

“I think multiculturalism has failed, I think David Cameron’s Big Society has failed and I think there is two laws, one for them and one for us.”

The attack started after Mr Hussain left his house to park his Ford Lincoln Navigator near the police station after becoming fed up of his vehicle being constantly damaged.

He then described the moment when the savage attackers pulled up outside his home and went to hit him on the head with the deadly weapon.

In a desperate attempt to save his life, he used his arm to protect his skull – but the brutal force caused his hand to “pop”.

His attackers were both wearing hooded tops and tracksuit bottoms and only stopped when Polish neighbours heard the loud noise and chased them off.

Mr Hussain said: “Two guys got out out and I immediately saw the pickaxe handle. They have gone to crack me on the head so naturally I lifted my arm up to protect myself and the blow has popped my hand.

“I started backpedaling and my heel caught the kerb, I then fell back and me head cracked off a low garden wall.

“That was it then it was a lame target. They started pummeling me with the pickaxe handle, raining blows on my upper body and then moving to my legs – it was then I felt my knee explode.

“Thankfully one of my neighbours came over and the thugs went on their way. The only thing was going though my mind was I need to stay alive, to protect my head, and to stay alive.”

Mali: ‘Allahu Akbar’ screaming terrorists take 170 hostage, 28 killed, free those who know Koran

Proving it’s not just Syrian refugees we should be banning but all Muslims.

Update: Up to 27 dead in Mali hotel siege; including one American

BAMAKO, Mali — Malian security forces, aided by U.S. and French special forces, ended a 7-hour siege Friday at a Radisson Blu hotel Friday that left up to 27 hostages and two extremists dead, according to a U.N. official.

The U.S. Department of State confirmed that an American citizen is among those who were killed.

Peacekeepers saw 12 dead bodies in the basement of the hotel and another 15 on the second floor, the U.N. official told Reuters on condition of anonymity. He added that the U.N. troops were still helping Malian authorities search the hotel.

One of the rescued hostages, celebrated Guinean singer Sékouba “Bambino” Diabate, said he had overheard two of the assailants speaking English as they searched an adjacent room.

  • Gunmen tested hostages’ knowledge of the Koran and allowed Muslim hostages to leave the hotel   

Armed jihadists have killed at least three people in a deadly shooting rampage and taken 170 hostages at the Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako, Mali.

Automatic weapons fire has been heard on the seventh floor of the 190-room hotel, where it is thought as many as 10 militants have been going floor to floor and taken 140 guests and 30 members of staff hostage.

Witnesses described how the gunmen allowed around 20 hostages to leave safely after they proved they were able to recite verses of the Koran to the militants. US and French Special Forces have reportedly stormed the hotel and have began to clear the building one floor at a time.

No group has claimed responsibility for the hotel attack, which is frequently used by Air France crew, although Al Qaeda affiliated militants have previously carried out attacks in Mali.

Several witnesses have claimed that the gunmen entered through the gates of the hotel in a car with a diplomatic number plate before opening fire with AK-47s and throwing grenades inside the building.

‘It’s all happening on the seventh floor, jihadists are firing in the corridor,’ a security source said.

The hotel’s head of security, Seydou Dembele, said two private security guards had been shot in the legs in the early stages of the assault.

‘We saw two of the attackers. One was wearing a balaclava. The other was black-skinned. They forced the first barrier,’ Dembele told Reuters.

Within minutes of the assault, police and then soldiers had surrounded the hotel and were blocking roads leading into the neighbourhood.

The horrific terror attacks comes just a few days after ISIS gunmen massacred 129 people on the streets of Paris.
