Virginia: Muslim on FBI Watchlist Yells ‘Allah Akbar’, Tries to Behead Man & Woman in Roanoke

Source: FBI Investigating Possible ISIS-Inspired Knife Attack in Virginia – ABC News

The FBI has launched a federal terrorism investigation into a weekend stabbing in Roanoke, Va., looking at whether the attacker may have been trying to behead his victim in an alleged ISIS-inspired assault, sources tell ABC News.

Federal authorities have been aware of the alleged attacker, 20-year-old Wasil Farooqui, of the Roanoke area, for some time, sources familiar with the case told ABC News. In the past year, he traveled to Turkey and may have tried to sneak into Syria, where ISIS is recruiting and inspiring sympathizers from across the world, sources said.

Farooqui was arrested Saturday by Roanoke County Police on charges of assault with malicious wounding, and he’s being held without bond at the Western Virginia Regional Jail, according to the sources and a jail database.

During the Saturday stabbing, Farooqui allegedly injured a man and woman at an apartment complex in Roanoke, yelling “Allah Akbar” as he attacked them with a knife, sources told ABC News.

Authorities believe he may have been trying to behead the male victim, who was likely picked at random, ABC News was told.

Farooqui and his two alleged victims were hospitalized after the attack. Their conditions were not clear.

“The FBI is working with the Police Department following the incident that occurred on Saturday evening,” the head of the FBI’s Richmond field office, Special Agent In Charge Adam Lee, said in a statement. “While I cannot discuss details of the investigation at this time, I do want to reassure the community that we are working to determine the nature of the incident.”

ISIS has released several propaganda videos depicting the beheadings of Western journalists and others.


More details:  Roanoke County police: suspect yelled “Allah Akbar” during attack

Roanoke County Police are investigating a reported stabbing at The Pines Apartments in the 4300 block of Banbury Lane. Authorities said dispatch received a call just before 8:00 p.m. that a male and female had been attacked as they entered the apartment building. Both were attacked with a knife and severely injured.

According to police, the male was able to fight off the attacker who fled the scene. Roanoke County Fire & Rescue transported both victims to a nearby hospital. While officers were at the hospital with the victims, a male identified as 20-year old Wasil Farooqui of Roanoke County, came into the emergency room suffering from injuries of his own said authorities. Police said Farooqui met the description of the suspect in the stabbing.


Whether or not it was ISIS-inspired, it was undoubtedly Islam-inspired. Considering Farooqi was on the FBI’s watch list for some time, it will be hard for the media to deploy the “nothing to do with Islam” meme. Instead, the media is taking a new tactic: NOT REPORTING IT AT ALL.

A similar media blackout is taking place regarding Muslim refugee rapes of American girls. No mention of the latest jihadi’s immigration status.

North Carolina: Muslim teen plotted to kill 1,000 Americans under guidance of Islamic terrorist

As we noted in June, via North Carolina: Father Tips Off Police to Muslim-Convert Son’s Jihad Sympathies

Sullivan told him [undercover agent] he had converted to Islam, and was a “mujahid.”

Sullivan wrote the undercover officer, “500 is an incorrect body count.” He said 1,000 was correct, “I’m thinking about using biological weapons … coat our bullets with cyanide … and then set off a gas bomb to finish the rest.”

In one of his last conversations with the undercover agent, authorities said Sullivan talked about a second attack, “we could use a U-Haul packed with bombs and then detonate it.”

The latest update via: Indictment: Man spoke with IS while planning attack in US – The Washington Post

The indictment filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Charlotte said Justin Nojan Sullivan spoke with Junaid Hussain in June 2015 via social media about making a video of a terrorist attack in the U.S. to be used by IS.

The original indictment unsealed in February accused Sullivan of killing his neighbor and stealing his money so he could buy an assault rifle to carry out an IS-inspired shooting at a concert or club. The indictment said Sullivan offered an undercover FBI employee money to kill his parents, who he believed would interfere with his plans.

In the initial indictment, Sullivan was accused of planning to use an assault rifle and silencer to carry out an attack at a concert, bar or club, which he believed would kill as many as 1,000 people.

A grand jury in Burke County also indicted Sullivan in February on a murder charge in the death of 74-year-old John Bailey Clark, who lived a few doors down from him, said District Attorney David Learner.

In December 2014, he used a .22-caliber rifle stolen from his father’s gun cabinet to shoot Clark in the head, the federal indictment said. A news release said forensic testing shows the rifle was used to kill Clark.

Federal authorities said they began investigating Sullivan after his father called 911 in April 2015 saying his son was destroying religious items in their home in Morganton. He was arrested at the family’s home without incident on June 19, and later told investigators that he planned to carry out an attack in the coming days when his parents were expected to be out of town, investigators have said.

Residents are reacting to new charges against a teen accused of supporting the Islamic State group by planning a terror attack in North Carolina.

An enhanced indictment said that while 19-year-old Justin Sullivan lived in Morganton with his parents, he had researched firearms and plotted to kill at least 1,000 people.

Now, he’s accused of planning the attack under the guidance of one of the most sought-after terror suspects in the world.

“I’m surprised in this little neighborhood,” resident Travis Baker said.

Baker and his neighbors have been rocked by one shock after another.

In June of 2015, authorities arrested Sullivan for allegedly plotting a terror attack.

Months later, Sullivan was charged with killing his neighbor as a practice target. New charges allege Sullivan was being mentored by Junaid Hussain, a high-ranking member of the Islamic State group.

“That was real shocking there,” Baker said. “Someone from here, this little country town, to get ahold of someone from ISIS.”

Terrorism expert Ross Bulla said the terror group has a tough screening process and that if Sullivan had a mentor, the Islamic State group believed he had access to weapons and the motivation to carry out an attack.

“This boy that looks like he is 12 years old walking into the courthouse is in direct communication and being mentored by the third highest-ranking member in the worst terror organization in the world,” Bulla said.

Bulla also said he believes there are more aspiring terrorists in the state.

“Absolutely. We are in a section of the country that is ripe with groups that practice hateful ideology and inspire lone wolf behaviors,” Bulla said.

Sullivan is in federal custody and his trial is set for Oct 31.


Someone should interview Bulla to get more details on these groups in North Carolina. Reader’s here know North Carolina is a hotbed for jihadist activity., but citizens should know to whom Bulla is referring.

On Islamic Violence: Forget the Koran, Look to History

Source: On Islamic Violence: Forget the Koran, Look to History

by Raymond Ibrahim

The debate around Muslim violence all too often centers around doctrine—around what the Koran and Hadith (words and deeds of Muhammad) really mean and say. Forgotten in this debate is that Islamic scriptures are unnecessary in determining whether Islam teaches violence and war against non-Muslims.

History suffices.

Consider some facts, attested to by both Muslim and non-Muslim primary historic sources: A mere decade after the birth of Islam in the 7th century, the jihad burst out of Arabia.  In just a few decades, Muslims had permanently conquered what was then two-thirds of the Christian world.  The heart of the Muslim world today—nations like Egypt, Syria, all of North Africa, Turkey and more—were, in the 7th century, the heart of Christendom.

Thereafter it was a continuous war on Christian Europe.  Among other nations and territories that were attacked and/or came under Muslim domination throughout the centuries are (to give them their modern names and in no particular order): Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Sicily, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Greece, Russia, Poland, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Lithuania, Romania, Albania, Serbia, Armenia, Georgia, Crete, Cyprus, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia, Belarus, Malta, Sardinia, Moldova, Slovakia, and Montenegro.

Less than three decades after the traditional date of Islam’s founding (622), three of the five original Christian centers (“sees”) founded by the apostles—in Alexandria, Antioch, and Jerusalem—were forever swallowed up by Islam; the fourth, Constantinople, valiantly resisted the Islamic onslaught for centuries, but was finally conquered in the name of Islam in 1453.  Though sacked and burned by Muslims as early as 846, only distant Rome—the Vatican, fifth of the ancient Christian sees—remained unconquered.

The few European regions that escaped direct Islamic occupation due to their northwest remoteness include Great Britain, Scandinavia, and Germany.  That, of course, does not mean that they were not attacked by Islam. Indeed, in the furthest northwest of Europe, in Iceland, Christians used to pray that God save them from the “terror of the Turk.” This was not mere paranoia; as late as 1627, Muslim corsairs raided the northern Christian island seizing four hundred captives and selling them in the slave markets of Algiers.

Nor did America escape.  A few years after the formation of the United States, in 1800, American trading ships in the Mediterranean were plundered and their sailors enslaved by Muslim corsairs.  The ambassador of Tripoli explained to Thomas Jefferson that it was a Muslim’s right and duty to make war upon non-Muslims wherever they could be found, and to enslave as many as they could take as prisoners.

There was no mystery about Islam in those days.   As early as the 8th century, Byzantine chronicler Theophanes wrote in his Chronographia:

He [Muhammad] taught those who gave ear to him that the one slaying the enemy — or being slain by the enemy — entered into paradise [e.g., Koran 9:111]. And he said paradise was carnal and sensual — orgies of eating, drinking, and women. Also, there was a river of wine … and the woman were of another sort, and the duration of sex greatly prolonged and its pleasure long-enduring [e.g., 56: 7-40, 78:31, 55:70-77]. And all sorts of other nonsense.

Six hundred years later, in the 14th century, Byzantine emperor Paleologus II told a Muslim scholar: “Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman — such as the command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”

Such was the honesty of interfaith dialoguing in former times.

It deserves repeating, by the standards of historiography, the aforementioned historical outline is unassailable, and attested to by both Muslim and European sources, from the traditional beginning of Islam till the modern era.

In short, regardless of what the Koran and other Islamic scriptures really “mean,” for roughly one millennium—punctuated by a Crusader-rebuttal that the modern West is obsessed with demonizing—Muslims waged unrelenting war on the West. And they did and continue doing so in the name of Islam.

——

And therein lies the rub: Today, whether as taught in high school or graduate school, whether as portrayed by Hollywood or the news media, the predominant historic narrative is that Muslims are the historic “victims” of “intolerant” Western Christians.  (Watch my response to a Fox News host wondering why Christians have always persecuted Muslims.)

So here we are, paying the price of being an ahistorical society: A few years after the Islamic strikes of 9/11—merely the latest in the centuries-long, continents-wide jihad on the West—Americans elected (twice) a man with a Muslim name and heritage for president; a man who openly empowers the same Islamic ideology that Western warriors fought for centuries.

Surely the United States’ European forebears—who at one time or another either fought off or were conquered by Islam—must be turning in their graves.

But all this is history, you say? Why rehash it?  Why not let it be and move on, begin a new chapter of mutual tolerance and respect, even if history must be “touched up” a bit?

This would be a somewhat plausible position if not for the fact that, all around the globe, Muslims are still exhibiting the same imperial impulse and intolerant supremacism that their conquering forbears did.  The only difference is that the Muslim world is currently incapable of defeating the West through a conventional war.

Yet this may not even be necessary.  Thanks to the West’s ignorance of history, Muslims are allowed to flood Europe, so that hardly a day now passes without headlines of Muslim on non-Muslim violence.   Most recently—or at least as of this writing—Muslims invaded a church in France, forced the priest on his knees, and slit his throat.

All this leads to another, equally important point: If the true history of the West and Islam is being turned upside down, what other historical “truths” being peddled around today are equally false?  The narrative concerning Islam’s alleged peacefulness is only being questioned because the world sees Muslims committing violence on a daily basis.  But surely there are other nefarious and seditious forces that are intelligent enough not to expose themselves?

In the future (whatever one there may be) the histories written about our times will likely stress how our era, ironically called the “information age,” was not an age when people were so well informed, but rather an age when disinformation was so widespread and unquestioned that generations of people lived in bubbles of alternate realities—till they were finally popped.

Montreal: Muslim woman runs over two police officers while shouting “Allah”

On August 11, 2016, a woman shouting “Allah” drove over two officers from the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal (Police Service of the City of Montreal), reported TVA Nouvelles.

The officers were standing outside a police station in North Montreal when the incident occurred.

“A lady in her 40’s made a dangerous driving manoeuvre at the police in Arrondissement de Montreal-Nord 39” said police commander Jonathan Martel.

The woman tried to speed away after hitting a police car. According to information obtained by TVA News, the woman reportedly shouted “Allah”.

“According to her behaviour and her words, one could think about an incident of a terrorist nature, but after investigation it was confirmed that there was no link to terrorist activity”, the commander assured.

The prosecutor requested a psychological evaluation of the woman who is facing charges of dangerous driving, assault and uttering threats. The woman remains in detention pending the investigation.


Just in…another Muslim attack in France: Strasbourg stabbing: Jewish rabbi knifed by man shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ in daylight attack

A Jewish rabbi has been stabbed by a knifeman in a sickening broad daylight attack.

The stabbing took place in the Jewish quarter of the north east French city of Strasbourg.

The attacker was restrained by a witness before being arrested by police following the broad daylight attack in the middle of the street.

As reported by French news site DNA, several witnesses heard the man shout Allahu Akbar when carrying out the assault.

Sources close to the investigation say terrorism has already been ruled out, with the attacker thought to have mental health problems.


RT reports:

According to Strasbourg’s chief rabbi, Rene Gutman, the attacker had carried out a similar assault six years ago on a Jew in the city. He was arrested on that occasion and placed in a psychiatric hospital, the France Bleu publication reports.

h/t Jihad Watch who writes:

And clearly the psychiatric treatment didn’t cure him of the will to wage jihad.


Muslims are afflicted to a significantly greater extent by mental health issues – just one more reason to ban them from entering Western nations.

Of course we all know, mental health is just the latest Asian youth, and this was a blatant Islamic attack just as Mohammad proscribes for all Muslims.

Muslim Immigrant Leaves US, Becomes Suicide Bomber for Islamic State

ISIS_TUNISIAN_FIGHTERWin win. Yesterday we learned of a Muslim refugee in Maine who left to wage jihad for ISIS and was quickly vaporized. Here’s the second this week.

Source: Homeland Security Today: ISIS Suicide Bomber Who Lived in US Says he Was Radicalized Here   h/t TROP

A Tunisian who lived in the US, Abu Muqatil Al Tunisi, claimed in a recently released video that he became radicalized while living in the US and left to join the Islamic State (ISIS) fighting in Iraq.

He made the claim in the video, “Fighting Will,” released August 9, 2016 by the media office of ISIS in which Al Tunisi was featured.

Believed to have carried out a suicide operation, Al Tunisi explained in the video that, “I met my Tunisian friend in a restaurant where we spent two hours, and then [together we] went to the house of another friend. While we were sitting there, the tyrant’s police came and took us to prison. [The time I spent there] was the time during which I knew Abu Amnah Al Tunisi the best. We got to know each other well and became [like] brothers.”

“Glorified be Allah,” he stated, “after we were released from prison, we remained like brothers. He repented, was guided by Allah [to the right path], and joined ISIS. At the same time, I was allured [by the material world] and went to the land of unbelief, the United States. I repented [while living] in the land of unbelief, the US, and when I [decided] to join ISIS, I left from there.”

“Next in the video,” said the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), “Al Tunisi expressed his desire to carry out a suicide operation, describing such operations as the ‘most rewarding deed,’ and saying, ‘The most rewarding deed is jihad and the most rewarding jihad is martyrdom operations. I ask Allah to accept me [as a martyr] to meet with my friend in the highest levels of Paradise where my castle be next to his castle. This is the story of me and Abu Amnah Al Tunisi.’”

“Following that,” MEMRI reported, “Al Tunish gives his last will and testament, thanking Allah for allowing him to be a fighter and urging his fellow fighters to fear Allah and to consider also carrying out suicide operations. He concluded with a message to the ‘brothers in Tunisis … I ask Allah that the day in which you make hijra to the Islamic State comes.’”


Recruiting propaganda?

There is no information on where or when the French-Tunisian lived in the U.S., how he got here (i.e., refugee resettlement?) or if/how he was vetted after being in a foreign prison. Presumably, if he did get into the U.S., he has friends and family here.

Should the media, including MEMRI, or law enforcement do their job and provide those details, we’ll update this post.

Shameful Silence: ABC, CBS and NBC Ignore Christian Genocide

…by Muslims.

Source: Shameful Silence | Media Research Center

Executive Summary

  • What Genocide?: Between January 2014 and June 2016, the network evening news shows referred to persecution against Christians in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia just 60 times. Despite telling of murders, forced religious conversions and mass displacement, the networks refused to add up the thousands of atrocities to what they clearly amount to: genocide. Just six of the 60 reports used the word genocide. Put another way, over two years, they mentioned the Christian genocide on just four separate days. Even when Secretary of State John Kerry officially declared in March 2016 that ISIS was engaging in genocide, CBS didn’t report it.
  • Media Kept Calling Darfur ‘Genocide’: During the George W. Bush administration, the networks had no problem calling the situation in Darfur genocide, even before the U.S. officially called it that. Once it did, they referred to the Darfur “genocide” 38 times in two years.
  • Journalists Should Have Known: If network reporters had even connected the dots of their own reports, they should have known and reported on what was really happening to Christians. By their own reporting, hundreds of thousands of Christians are “on the run” from their homes, mass graves have been found, and Christians have been made to “convert or die.” In addition, network journalists could have watched their own news magazine shows. Both ABC’s Nightline and CBS’s Sixty Minutes have aired excellent long-form stories on the atrocities, though neither show used the word genocide.
  • Downplaying The Slaughter: The six instances where the networks have used “genocide” or equivalent terms, they’ve tended to lump Christians in with Yazidis and Shia Muslims as victims, echoing the Obama administration’s reluctance to focus on the anti-Christian violence. During the two years MRC Culture analyzed, one source has recorded 226 Muslim- on-Christian attacks. At least 125 churches have been attacked. According to one Christian group, 7,000 Christians worldwide were killed because of their faith in 2015 alone. Yet even when the Obama administration has (officially and unofficially) called the Christian persecution in Iraq and Syria genocide, the networks almost never used the word.

Christians in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia are suffering massive, sustained and very bloody persecution at the hands of Muslim extremists. ISIS has driven staggering numbers of Christians from their homes in Iraq and Syria, and have destroyed some of Christianity’s oldest holy sites in what the Islamists have termed “cultural cleansing.” Terrorists have slaughtered entire Christian villages in Nigeria, and murdered Christian students in their classrooms in Kenya. Churches have been bombed and worshipers kidnapped in Pakistan and Syria.

One report from Christian activists identifies 1,131 individual Christians murdered by the Islamic State and names 125 churches the terrorists have attacked. Those numbers, according to the report, may be “the tip of the iceberg.”

ISIS has publically beheaded or burned alive Christians for refusing to renounce their faith and convert. In Syria, the group crucified dozens. ISIS broke up Christian and Yazidi families and sold young girls into sex slavery. It destroyed Christian holy sites in an attempt to erase all pre-Islamic history, and announced it will continue to wage war against “the Jews, the Christians, the pagans, and the apostates.”

A March 18, 2016 article in the Christian Science Monitor cited the evangelical Christian group Open Doors, which found that more than 7,000 “Christians were killed because of their faith last year,” and that doesn’t necessarily include the numbers from Iraq, Syria, or even North Korea, where accurate data are difficult to obtain.”

All this adds up to one thing – genocide.

Yet the concept of “Never again!” seems forgotten by network journalists. Groups such as Open Doors, the Knights of Columbus and In Defense of Christians have documented the horrors in countries from Afghanistan to Yemen, the West Bank to Central Africa. It hasn’t helped. The media rarely tied the incidents together. Even when the pope, the European Union, the House of Representatives and finally the Obama administration all agreed that Christians were victims of genocide, the term was almost unused on ABC, CBS and NBC.

The networks have reported on the violence sporadically and often superficially. They mentioned the plight of Christians in Muslim countries in only 60 stories between January 2014 and June 2016 – an average of just one story every two weeks across all three networks. But they have essentially refused to connect their own dots and call it what it clearly is: genocide.

Hollywood champions like George Clooney, who publicized Darfur and demanded action on that genocide have gone silent. Pope Francis has shined a light on the violence, going so far as to condone military action against ISIS. But the networks were far more interested in anything the pope might say on gay marriage or contraception than genocide.

If there’s any good news, it’s that, unlike Rwanda, where the horror was complete before the media understood genocide was occurring, the Christian genocide is occurring at a slower pace. There is still time for the networks to let the world know.

The networks haven’t always been so reticent. Almost exactly ten years prior to the first years of ISIS reign of terror, between May 23, 2004 and May 21, 2006, the networks called the atrocities in Darfur genocide 39 times. That too was a case of Muslims wiping out Christians (and animists) – largely of Arabs killing blacks.
