Kansas: Man Pleads Guilty To Aiding Muslim Bomb Plot at Fort Riley

A man accused of conspiring in a foiled plot to bomb a Kansas military base on behalf of the Islamic State group has pleaded guilty to conspiracy. Alexander E. Blair changed his plea to guilty on Monday in a Topeka federal court. Prosecutors say Blair helped 21-year-old John T. Booker in his plot to plant a 1,000-pound bomb at the Fort Riley military base to aid the Islamic State group. Blair admitted in court that he loaned Booker $100 to secure a storage space for the explosives and failed to inform law enforcement of the plot. Booker has already pleaded guilty in the case.

Booker, aka, Mohammed Abdullah Hassan.

Original Story

A court hearing was scheduled on Monday morning for a Topeka man accused of trying to help another man in a plot to bomb Fort Riley.

Today’s court hearing is for 29-year-old Alexander Blair, of Topeka. Prosecutors say he loaned 21-year-old John T. Booker $100 for storage space for explosives and failed to notify authorities. Booker is the man who intended to plant a 1,000-pound bomb at Fort Riley — and prosecutors think Blair knew about the plan and helped him.

John Booker already pleaded guilty and acknowledged the plot. Now, a federal judge will hear a change-of-plea request from Alexander Blair. Blair had pleaded not guilty to the charges earlier, but now, he’s changed his mind.

Court documents say Blair decided to change his plea because he believes the government has collected enough evidence to convict him of conspiracy.

New York: Muslim who tried to enter UK charged with supporting ISIS terrorists

via DOJ: New York Man Arrested for Attempting to Provide Material Support to ISIS

Sajmir Alimehmeti, aka Abdul Qawii, 22, of the Bronx, New York, was arrested today for attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization, as well as for making a false statement in an application for a U.S. passport.  Alimehmeti is expected to be presented later today before U.S. Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein of the Southern District of New York.

“Alimehmeti was charged for his attempt to provide material support to ISIL by assisting a person who he believed was traveling to Syria to join ISIL,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin.

“As alleged, Sajmir Alimehmeti, a Bronx man and an ISIL sympathizer, took steps to travel overseas to support ISIL’s terror campaign,” said U.S. Attorney Bharara.  “As the complaint alleges, Alimehmeti also bought military-type weapons and helped someone he believed to be a fellow ISIL supporter get travel documents, equipment and encryption technology purportedly to get to Syria to fight with ISIL.  Alimehmeti is charged today with actions that show a clear intention to support a terrorist organization that is hell-bent on murder and mayhem.  For that, thanks to the incredibly dedicated work of the FBI-NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force, Alimehmeti is under arrest and facing federal criminal charges.”

“The subject in this case was allegedly having a hard time getting overseas to fight with ISIL,” said Assistant Director in Charge Rodriguez.  “But when he couldn’t leave, he allegedly seemed more than willing to help others tread the same path to join an insidious and deadly terrorist organization.  Cases like this keep the FBI JTTF and our partners at the NYPD going day in and day out, protecting our city from individuals who plot to help murderers.”

“As alleged, Alimehmeti continued his quest to support ISIL’s deadly terrorist agenda, after being denied entry into Europe with a bag full of military gear,” said Commissioner Bratton.  “When he returned home, to the Bronx, he allegedly turned to helping others join the terrorist organization as he built his own arsenal of weapons.  Today’s case is the latest example of collaboration at its best, a case worked through the Joint Terrorism Task Force with undercover officers from the NYPD’s Intelligence Bureau.”

As alleged in the criminal complaint, unsealed today in federal court:

In October 2014, Alimehmeti attempted to enter the United Kingdom but was denied entry after U.K. authorities found camouflage clothing and nunchucks in his luggage.  In December 2014, Alimehmeti was again denied entry into the United Kingdom, this time after U.K. authorities found that his cellphone contained images of ISIL flags and improvised explosive device attacks.  Further forensic examination of images on the cellphone and Alimehmeti’s laptop computer showed numerous indications of Alimehmeti’s support for ISIL, including a picture of Alimehmeti with an ISIL flag in the background, pictures of ISIL fighters in the Middle East, a picture of Alimehmeti making a gesture of support for ISIL and numerous audio files relating to jihad and martyrdom.

After returning to the United States, Alimehmeti continued to express his support for -ISIL by displaying an ISIL flag in his apartment in the Bronx, among other things.  In meetings with undercover law enforcement employees, Alimehmeti played multiple ISIL-related videos on his computer and his phone, including videos of ISIL decapitating prisoners.

Over the last 11 months, Alimehmeti made multiple purchases of military-style knives and other military-type equipment, including masks, handcuffs, a pocket chain-saw and steel-knuckled gloves.

In October 2015, Alimehmeti applied for a new U.S. passport, claiming his previous passport had been lost.  However, Alimehmeti later told an undercover law enforcement employee that his prior passport had not been lost and, instead, that he was applying for a new passport because he believed rejection stamps on his old passport, including rejection stamps from his attempted entries into the United Kingdom, would make it difficult to travel.

In May 2016, Alimehmeti attempted to assist an individual who was purportedly traveling from New York to Syria to train and fight with ISIL but who was actually an undercover law enforcement employee (UC).  On May 17, 2016, Alimehmeti met with the UC in Manhattan, New York, where the UC was purportedly en route to John F. Kennedy International Airport to take an overseas flight later that night in order to join ISIL.

Alimehmeti agreed to help the UC with several tasks before the UC went to the airport, including by locating stores so that the UC could purchase supplies to use while traveling to and fighting with ISIL, including a cellphone, boots, a compass, a bag and flashlight, among other items.  Alimehmeti provided the UC with advice and suggestions on the best boots to purchase and on which items to purchase.  The defendant also advised the UC on the use of different kinds of encrypted communications apps, including an app that Alimehmeti stated was currently being used by “the brothers,” and downloaded three encrypted communications apps onto the UC’s new cellphone.

Further, Alimehmeti assisted the UC in traveling from Manhattan to a hotel in Queens, New York, so that the UC could purportedly meet with an individual who was preparing travel documents that the UC would use to travel to Syria (document facilitator).  Alimehmeti, who had repeatedly expressed his own desire to travel to join ISIL, gave the UC a piece of paper with his name and contact information so that the UC could provide that information to the supposed document facilitator.  In voicing his interest in joining ISIL, Alimehmeti stated, excitedly, “I’m ready to . . . go with you man . . . you know I would.  I’m done with this place.”  After leaving the hotel in Queens, Alimehmeti brought the UC to Kennedy International Airport via public transportation.

The charges contained in the complaint are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

If convicted, Alimehmeti faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for providing material support and a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison for making a false statement in an application for a U.S. passport.

Oklahoma: Muslim Who Beheaded Elderly Co-Worker Pleads Guilty

Source: Courthouse News Service – Accused Beheader Pleads Guilty to Murder

OKLAHOMA CITY (CN) – A Muslim convert accused of beheading a co-worker and nearly beheading a second at an Oklahoma food processing plant pleaded guilty Friday.

Alton Alexander Nolen, 31, of Norman, Okla., pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree murder and two counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon, the Oklahoman reported.

Nolen is accused of beheading 54-year-old Colleen Hufford on Sept. 25, 2014, at a Vaughn Foods processing plant.
Prosecutors say Nolen also tried to behead a second victim, Traci Johnson, 44, cutting her throat and face, and then tried to stab a company executive, who shot him.

Nolen’s attack was sparked by a complaint Johnson made about Nolen “not liking white people,” prosecutors allege.
Psychologist Jeanne Russell testified at Nolen’s competency trial in October, saying he wanted to plead guilty and be executed because of his religious beliefs.

On Friday, Cleveland County District Judge Lori Walkley declined to rule on accepting Nolen’s plea until Aug. 12 because a separate defense expert claims Nolen is mentally ill.

Walkley questioned Nolen for 90 minutes about the crime and if he understood he was waiving his right to a jury trial by pleading guilty.

He responded with rambling answers referencing his Muslim faith and that events in his life were pre-determined. He stopped at one point and started praying, the Oklahoman reported.

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

broward-reward

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

Syrian ‘rebel’ from al Qaida linked group visited U.S.

U.S. authorities denied entry to a prominent Syrian humanitarian leader. So why did it allow in a member of a controversial Islamist rebel faction?

A senior figure from a Syrian rebel group with links to al Qaida was allowed into the United States for a brief visit, raising questions about how much the Obama administration will compromise in the search for partners in the conflict.

Labib al Nahhas, foreign affairs director for the Islamist fighting group Ahrar al Sham, spent a few days in Washington in December, according to four people with direct knowledge of the trip and who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of U.S. relations with Syrian rebels.

His previously undisclosed visit is a delicate matter for both sides – the conservative Salafist insurgents risk their credibility with even perceived ties to the United States, and the U.S. government risks looking soft on screenings by allowing entry to a member of an Islamist paramilitary force.

National security analysts say U.S. authorities likely knew of Nahhas’ arrival – intelligence agencies for years have watched his group’s interactions with al Qaida’s Syrian branch, the Nusra Front.

That suggests that authorities granted him entry at a time when U.S. immigration authorities face political pressure to block visitors with even tenuous ties to extremist groups. Four months after Nahhas entered the United States on a European passport, U.S. authorities denied entry to a well-known Syrian humanitarian leader who had been approved to visit Washington to receive an award from international aid groups.

“They’re treating Labib al Nahhas as an individual, and it’s also useful to have someone to talk to on the other side,” said Faysal Itani, a Syria specialist with the Atlantic Council’s Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East, who said he’d known about Nahhas’ visit. “They could make, quickly, the decision that he’s persona non grata in the United States and yet they haven’t.”

A Syrian opposition official with knowledge of the matter said it shouldn’t have been surprising that he was allowed entry because Ahrar al Sham is not among U.S.-designated terrorist groups. He said Nahhas hadn’t planned meetings with any U.S. officials but wanted to speak with “third parties” who might be able to influence policymakers. He declined to elaborate on the “third parties;” others said the plan was to meet with lobbyists and Middle East researchers.

The State Department declined to answer whether any U.S. officials knew in advance or expressed reservations about Nahhas’s presence in Washington, or whether State Department officials had assisted his entry.

The Obama administration has considered slapping a terrorist label on the group, and Secretary of State John Kerry has lumped Ahrar in the same category as blacklisted groups the Islamic State, Nusra Front and Hamas.

Officials so far have held back on a designation, privately saying that they’ve calculated it would do more harm than good on the ground.

“They’re not al Qaida but they are Salafi jihadists – they’re just not transnational ones,” Itani said of Ahrar al Sham.

Given the State Department’s growing impatience with Syrian insurgents’ “co-mingling” with Nusra Front, it’s unclear whether Nahhas would be welcomed back to Washington.

“Straddling the jihadi-mainstream divide has served them very well earlier in the conflict,” Lund said of Ahrar al Sham, “but by now their inability to come down on one side or the other is starting to look more like weakness.”


One of those third parties he met with was very likely CAIR, the Hamas front group. As was reported here: US Muslim Brotherhood’s Political Party to Blitz Capitol Hill This Week

The Board of Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA) is littered with Hamas leaders including…all of them.  Dr. Jess Ghannam, Dr. Hatem Bazian (name familiar?), Tarek Alkadri, Mouffa Nahhas, and Khalil Meek.  Alkadri, Nahhas, and Meek all openly served in various positions for Hamas in the U.S. (dba “CAIR”).

Are Labib Nahhas and MLFA/CAIR’s Mouffa Nahhas related?

Muslims Terrorize Jewish Students at UC-Irvine Movie Screening, Police Rescue

Islamo-supremacy and militancy will not be reported by the media.

Two student groups at the University of California, Irvine (UCI), ambushed a movie screening held by Students Supporting Israel (SSI).

The protesters belonged to the Muslim Student Union and the Students for Justice in Palestine. Apparently, the presence of two former Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers sent them over the edge and feared for their safety.

Yes, the group actually believed that the two former IDF soldiers “threatened our coalition of Arab, black, undocumented, trans, and the greater activist community.”

But their protest left those in the event fearing for their life as the demonstrators blocked the exits and would not let people leave. People frantically called campus police for help, who “had to escort Jewish students away from the scene.”

Kevin Brum, SSI’s vice president, said the police only escorted them away because the protesters had a right to be there.

The Jewish Federation & Family services and Hillel at UIC said the protesters “physically intimidated and threatened on student attempting to enter the event.” The incident will not deter the groups from moving forward with more events:

Hillel and Rose Project continue to work with the university administration to investigate the incident. We encourage the administration to hold accountable the protestors who threatened our students. We continue our work to ensure that Jewish and pro-Israel students are able to engage in programming in a safe environment.

Our students are not intimidated. Today’s Artists for Israel event on the main thoroughfare is going forward as scheduled, with Hillel adding further protections to ensure student safety. We are also providing support for students who need to talk about Wednesday’s incident.

We appreciate your continued support, as Hillel and Rose Project work to ensure students are free to express their support for Israel on campus, and all students are protected against threats and intimidation.

UCI released this statement:

“Last night, an incident occurred on campus that we believe crossed the line of civility, prompting me to re-emphasize our position on free speech, safety, and mutual respect.

“The incident centered on a film-viewing event sponsored by Students Supporting Israel. A group of protesters reportedly disrupted the event, blocking exit paths. Participants feared for their safety, calling on our police for assistance.

“While this university will protect freedom of speech, that right is not absolute. As I mentioned in a campus message at the beginning of the academic year, threats, harassment, incitement, and defamatory speech are not protected. We must shelter everyone’s right to speak freely—without fear or intimidation—and allow events to proceed without disruption and potential danger.

“We are thoroughly analyzing all reports and information regarding this incident and investigating whether disciplinary or legal actions are appropriate.

“The month of May is filled with cultural celebrations and remembrances that highlight the diversity of this brilliant campus. Please respect your colleagues’ right to recognize their heritage and express opinions in a safe environment.”

Chancellor Howard Gillman condemned the Muslim protest:

“A group of protesters reportedly disrupted the event, blocking exit paths. Participants feared for their safety, calling on our police force for assistance,” Gillman continued. “While this university will protect freedom of speech, that right is not absolute. As I mentioned in a campus message at the beginning of the academic year (freespeech.uci.edu), threats, harassment, incitement and defamatory speech are not protected. We must shelter everyone’s right to speak freely – without fear or intimidation – and allow events to proceed without disruption and potential danger.”

In March, the University of California regents adopted a document from January, which included an amendment that added “anti-Zionism” as a form discrimination.


More: Jewish Woman Forced to Hide From Muslim Thugs at UC-Irvine

Sophomore Eliana Kopley had just left a Holocaust-related event when she was walking toward the facility featuring a screening of “Beneath the Helmet,” a documentary about the Israel Defense Forces. As she arrived at the event hosted by Students Supporting Israel, Ms. Kopley was met by an angry crowd pounding on the doors and windows—engaged in violent chants targeting the Jewish state.

“I was terrified. There is no other word to describe how I felt,” Ms. Kopley told the Haym Salomon Center.

As the mob tried to gain entrance to the event, one protestor shouted, “If we’re not allowed in, you’re not allowed in!”

As Ms. Kopley was being rescued by police, local and campus law enforcement agencies also arrived to protect Jewish students and pro-Israel activists from the protestors. Police brought Ms. Kopley to the screening safely, but as she was comforted by fellow students she was overtaken by emotions and began to cry. The dozen attendees, as well as two veteran IDF soldiers who were invited to participate in a panel discussion, were escorted by police in two groups back to campus to ensure their safety.
