Seattle Muslim charged with terrorism after jihad attacks kill 4 Americans

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) – A Seattle man was indicted on murder and terrorism charges Thursday for allegedly shooting a New Jersey college student last year in a fit of rage over the U.S. government’s role in the Middle East, which authorities said is the first time a terror charge has been brought in the state in connection with a murder case.

Ali Muhammad Brown, 30, fatally shot Brendan Tevlin while the 19-year-old was stopped at a traffic light in northern New Jersey, authorities said.

Brown also faces three aggravated murder charges in Seattle, where authorities said last year the killings were part of a crusade to punish the U.S. government for its foreign policies.

Authorities said in court documents filed in Seattle last year that Brown described himself to detectives after his New Jersey arrest as a strict Muslim who was angry with the U.S. government’s role in Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan because of the death of innocent civilians and children.

“The defendant was on a bloody crusade, executing four innocent men … with the same murder weapon, over the course of approximately two months, and all under the common and single scheme of exacting ‘vengeance’ against the United States government for its foreign policies,” prosecutors said.

Tevlin was shot multiple times on June 25, 2014 as he stopped at a traffic light in West Orange on his way home to Livingston, roughly five or 10 minutes away. Tevlin was home after completing his freshman year at the University of Richmond. At the time, Brown had been a fugitive for three weeks after authorities in Seattle identified him as a suspect in the slayings of two men early on the morning of June 1.

Brown was arrested in woods not far from the site of Tevlin’s killing, in an area that includes a golf course and the South Mountain Reservation, a 2,000-acre park in the center of Essex County.

At the time of Brown’s arrest, Murray said results of ballistics tests from the Tevlin shooting were put into a national database and matched with the gun that was used in the Seattle murders. Authorities said they picked up Brown’s trail after an alleged robbery and attempted carjacking in Point Pleasant on June 29, four days after Tevlin was killed.

The prosecutor’s office announced Thursday it had dropped charges in the Tevlin slaying against West Orange residents Eric Williams and Jeremy Villagran, who were charged along with Brown.

In the New Jersey case Brown is also charged with felony murder, carjacking, robbery and multiple weapons offenses.

Montana: College officials let 30 Saudi students caught cheating fly home to avoid deportation, charges

via Saudis tried to shield students from scandal at Montana Tech. h/t Diversity’s Dark Side

A group of Saudi students caught in a cheating scandal at a Montana college were offered flights home by their kingdom’s diplomats to avoid the possibility of deportation or arrest, according to a cache of Saudi Embassy memos recently published by WikiLeaks and a senior official at the school involved.

The students were in a ring of roughly 30 alleged cheaters at Montana Tech accused of having systematically forged grades by giving presents to a college employee.

The cheating was discovered – and the staffer was fired – following an investigation made public in early 2012, but the memos reveal for the first time that the students were almost all Saudis and that their government booked them flights home following a meeting between college administrators and Saudi diplomats in Washington just before the scandal broke.

A Saudi memo describing the meeting, dated Feb. 3, 2012, and labeled “Secret / Urgent,” says it was Montana Tech Chancellor Donald Blackketter who floated the idea of flying the students out of the United States. The memo goes on to say that an unidentified diplomat at the embassy subsequently “issued travel tickets to those students … to return to the kingdom so they don’t face jail or deportation by the American authorities.”

Reached by phone at his home in Butte, the college’s Vice-Chancellor of Academic Affairs Douglas Abbott told the Associated Press the Saudi Embassy’s account of the meeting sounded accurate.

“I think that we might’ve recommended that,” he said of the flights. Montana law doesn’t bar the alteration of school records – even in return for gifts – but Abbott said that, at the time, campus authorities believed the students could be arrested or even expelled from the country.

“We didn’t know whether this would happen, whether ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) would show up on the Montana Tech campus,” he said.

Blackketter did not return messages seeking comment.

The Saudi memos reveal that, on Jan. 4, several days before the scandal became public knowledge, Abbott and Blackketter went to the Saudi Embassy in Washington to brief officials there about the cheating allegations.

Abbott told AP that the college had been advised by legal counsel that the Saudi Embassy – which together with Saudi Aramco was sponsoring 33 of the suspected cheaters at Montana Tech – should be told of the issue.

He declined to comment on why his colleague had apparently suggested flying the students out of the country, saying he didn’t remember that aspect of the conversation in any detail.

Abbott said the college’s legal counsel had warned against naming the students or identifying them by nationality. He added that the college notified the Office of the Commissioner of Higher Education in Montana and even called in the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security to investigate what he believed were possible crimes.

Officials from both agencies arrived on campus on Jan. 9 for interviews, Abbott said, but no one was ever charged.

A pair of French Bulldog puppies were stolen from two Petland stores around Columbus Sunday.

Employees at the store located at the Carriage Place shopping center said a woman wearing a black burqa with a tattoo on her asked to see a dog.

Surveillance cameras recorded the woman placing 15-week-old “Nemo” in a bag and leaving the store, staff said.

Employees at the Pickerington Petland reported a woman with a similar description stole three-month-old “Marcus” on the same day.

The pet store chain has notified police, according to a news release.

The dogs are implanted with microchips and lost pet alerts have issued by petkey.org, which is a national microchip registry service, spokesman Mike Donovan said.

“Alerts were sent out to the pet community within a 25 mile radius of the stores,” Donovan said.

Anyone with information regarding the puppies whereabouts is urged to call police.

Muslim woman who ’embraced jihadist ideology’ sentenced to death for killing US teacher

American lives don’t count. Especially American women killed by jihadists. Not a peep from Hussein Obama. via UAE woman ‘sentenced to death for killing US teacher’ – Yahoo News.

A United Arab Emirates court sentenced an Emirati woman to death on Monday after convicting her of the jihadist-inspired murder of an American teacher, Abu Dhabi newspaper The National reported.

Alaa Bader al-Hashemi, 30, was found guilty of stabbing to death school teacher Ibolya Ryan, 47, in a shopping mall toilet, the paper said.

She was also convicted of “creating a handmade bomb” she placed in front of an Egyptian-American doctor’s home, it added.

The attacks took place within hours of each other in the UAE capital on December 1.

Tracked down using CCTV footage of her going into and out of the restroom where the teacher’s murder took place and near the doctor’s building, Hashemi was arrested 48 hours later.

She was dressed in black from head-to-toe as she carried out both attacks.

Hashemi was arrested at her home where her car was found with blood on the steering wheel and bomb making materials inside.

The National said that Hashemi “was also found guilty of sending money to Al-Qaeda in Yemen, knowing the funds would be used in terrorist acts”.

The ruling was made by the Federal Supreme Court in Abu Dhabi, which means it cannot be appealed.

The president can, however, decide to overturn the sentence or reduce it.

Hashemi, surrounded by four police officers, “showed no emotion as the verdict and sentence were announced,” the paper said.

“As she was led from court she smiled and waved at her father and brother, who were in court to witness the proceedings.”

International media have been denied access to her trial, which began on March 23.

Hashemi had asked the court to provide her with psychological help, saying she had “unreal visions” and would see “ghost-like people” due to a chronic mental illness.

The court ordered psychiatric tests which it said showed she was aware of her actions.

In March, Attorney General Salem Saeed Kubaish said that investigators found she had “listened to lectures by late Al-Qaeda leaders Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, watched video clips of killings and beheadings,” among other similar activities.

She “embraced takfiri and jihadist ideology and then engaged in terrorist acts in support of the terrorist organisations Al-Qaeda and Daesh,” he said using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group.

The convict was also said to have created an Internet account to promote the “ideas of a terrorist group”.

The judge on Monday “ordered the confiscation of all evidence and the shutting down of the online account Hashemi had used,” The National said.


She also planted a bomb at an American doctor’s home.

 

New Jersey: Another Muslim arrested on terror charges

The fifth tri-state area Muslim arrested this month on jihad charges. alaa_saadeh_0629b alaa_saadeh_0629

via Fifth arrest made in New Jersey for terror-related charges | New York’s PIX11 / WPIX-TV.

NEWARK, N.J. — A New Jersey man has been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists, the fifth such arrest of a tri-state area resident this month, the FBI said Monday.

Alaa Saadeh, 23, of West New York, N.J., was taken into custody Monday morning at his home, the FBI said.

In addition to accusations he conspired with other men in New Jersey and New York to provide services and personnel to the Islamic State terror group, Saadeh is suspected of trying to persuade a witness to lie to the FBI, the agency said.

The 23-year-old appeared before a judge Monday afternoon.

Manny Gomez, a former FBI agent and founder of MG Security Services says that Monday’s arrest should be embraced with mixed feelings, “The authorities are doing an amazing job at identifying, investigating and ultimately arresting these people and stopping these attacks.”

That is the good news.

As for the bad?

“The bad news is that statistically speaking, ISIS is recruiting more and more young people on a daily basis and the authorities are being challenged more and more everyday to keep up with these potential attacks,” says Gomez.

The FBI said Saadeh’s brother left the U.S. in May allegedly to join the terror group, which uses beheadings and mass killings — often captured on camera then published online — to impose its violent agenda.

Saadeh along with another man and Samuel Rahamin Topaz, 21, of Fort Lee, allegedly traveled with him and promised to meet overseas again in a few weeks. Soon after, Saadeh’s brother, whom the FBI did not identify, was arrested in Jordan on suspicion of supporting ISIS, federal officials said.

But Saadeh, Topaz and a third man continued to discuss their suspected terror goals. That is, until May 21 when he and Topaz allegedly talked about the need to “lay low,” apparently suspicious that someone may have “snitched” on their plans and that the feds were listening, the FBI said.

Saadeh allegedly revealed to an informant that he supported ISIS and their brutal slayings, the FBI said. He then allegedly told someone in New Jersey to “play dumb” and be “honest up to a point” but be sure not to tell the FBI anything about his suspected terror aspirations.

PIX 11 spoke with U.S. Representative Yvette Clarke, a former Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security at her Brooklyn office. Rep. Clarke says it translates to, “Well it just says to me that we’ve got a lot more work to do in terms of finding those potential lone operators.”

Rep. Clarke also added that equally as disturbing is the fact that a number of the men arrested are relatively young, “It speaks to some sort of disillusionment among some young people, particularly those who would be more vulnerable to those trying to find acceptance and unfortunately that acceptance is through theses dramatic terrorist plots.”

As for the fact that this is the fifth arrest in the tri-State area in recent weeks, Gomez says the rash is concerning, “Five in a short amount of time in the same area is a new thing and it makes one wonder how many more are out there in the country that we don’t have eyes and ears on that can potentially blow up, literally at any given time.”

Each count in the complaint against Saadeh carries a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.


Another news source writes:

Saadeh could face up to 60 years in prison if convicted.

According to the federal complaint, Saadeh believed one of the others snitched on him when he learned his brother was arrested overseas. Saadeh allegedly said he would “kill someone” and told a witness to “play dumb” after he learned the FBI was on to him.

Kerry sends US diplomat to British school overtaken by hardline Muslims

brancoThe State Dept’s entire agenda is Islam. So it makes sense they send a Muslim to a UK school overtaken by hardline Sunni Muslims. via Trojan Horse school in visit by top US diplomat to improve Muslim relations – Birmingham Mail. h/t Islamist Watch

The man tasked with boosting America’s relationship with Muslim communities across the globe has paid a visit to a Birmingham school at the centre of the Trojan Horse scandal.

Shaarik Zafar, US Secretary of State John Kerry’s special representative to Muslim Communities, met with pupils and staff at Park View – one of the five schools plunged in special measures by education watchdog Ofsted in April last year.

zafar

Do they look British?

Back in 2009 we posted on Shaarik Zafar when he was “shaping” policy at DHS.

Park View is battling back after the allegations of a plot by hardline Muslims to take over governing bodies, and is set to change its name to Rockwood Academy in September.

He also joined in a debate with pupils about the role young Muslims can play in British society and the challenges that they face.

One pupil, who did not wish to be named, said: “Some people judge us because of our headscarves but in our eyes we’re British.

Do they look British? The media only refers to them as Asian.

Mr Zafar said he was “thrilled” to meet the pupils at the predominantly Muslim school.

“Muslims are a part of Britain – this is a very British school and I’m honoured to be here,” he added. “Dialogue between communities of all faith is essential – the more we break down barriers and stereotypes the better.

So which is it? A predominantly Muslim school or a very British school?

“Park View is a unique place and the children here have a terrific opportunity to get a first class education, and I look forward to hearing more about the work that this school is doing in the future”.

Adrian Packer, executive headteacher at the school, added: “We are working hard to forge new relationships with other communities.

If it’s a very British school, then why do they need to work hard to forge new relationships with other communities?

“Playing our small part in developing the special relationship between the UK and the US is an exciting prospect for our students.

“Mr Zafar has committed to fostering more links between Park View and other similar schools, businesses and community groups in the US.


Partnering with corrupt, jihad-preaching schools like this one is the last thing American kids need to be involved with. Even Muslim parents say the school was taken over by Islamic radicals and was brainwashing children. So the taxpayer-funded State Dept. sends a Muslim rep to this school? Where school books promote stoning; 6-year-olds taught Western women are ‘white prostitutes’.

In a previous post on the it was revealed that:

…there was a “sustained and coordinated agenda to impose upon children in a number of Birmingham schools the segregationist attitudes and practices of a hardline and politicised strain of Sunni Islam“.

The draft, marked as sensitive, added that: “Left unchecked, it would confine schoolchildren within an intolerant, inward-looking monoculture that would severely inhibit their participation in the life of modern Britain”.

Fire them all.

A few weeks ago, “Mooch” Obama went to a Muslim girls school in one of the U.K.’s notorious Muslim enclaves.

Florida: Imam who trained jihadist sentenced to time served, released

Another jihad-preaching & teaching imam defended by terror group CAIR.

via Man accused in jihad plot sentenced to time already served – Orlando Sentinel.

A federal judge Friday morning sentenced Marcus Robertson to time served and ordered his release, saying his time in jail was sufficient for both convictions of tax fraud and weapons charges.

Robertson, also known as Abu Taubah, was accused of teaching another man how to participate in jihad missions overseas.

On Friday, U.S. Judge Gregory Presnell sentenced Robertson to a total of 20 months for both convictions.

But Robertson has spent the last three and a half years in prison, according to his attorney Daniel Broderson, which is more time than his actual sentence.

He was convicted on the weapons charge in 2012 and tax fraud in 2014, the judge said.

As a condition of his release, Robertson was put on probation for three years.

“As the judge remarked, he should not have spent that much time in jail based on the crimes he committed,” Broderson said after the sentencing. “He’s going to go on with his life to the best of his ability.”

Robertson had faced increased sentencing of up to 20 years for allegedly promoting terrorism through these crimes.

According to federal prosecutors, Robertson falsified tax documents to fund recruiting efforts for an al-Qaida base overseas.

This allegation was based on seized books, court-authorized surveillance and the man who says Robertson trained him, Jonathan Jimenez.

Jimenez pleaded guilty in 2012 of lying to FBI agents and falsifying income-tax documents, records show.

He is serving a 10-year prison sentence.

Jimenez, who moved to Central Florida with a ninth-grade education, listed three of Robertson’s children as exemptions on tax documents, court records show.

According to prosecutors, the money was to pay for Jimenez’s overseas travel to learn about killing, suicide bombing and identifying military personnel.

Presnell determined there wasn’t enough evidence to prove the terrorism claim.

At Friday’s sentencing, Presnell said he had received hundreds of emails from people asking him to hand down a maximum sentence.

He read one email that said, “Islam must be stopped and redirected back to the Middle East.”

In his comments to the court, Presnell said the U.S. tolerates other religions and that the emails did not affect his decision.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations in Florida supported the judge’s decision.

The organization’s chief executive director, Hassan Shibly, spoke after the sentencing on behalf of Robertson and his family.

Robertson returned to Seminole County jail — where he was being held — to collect his belongings and be processed for release, Shibly said.

“The judge sent a strong message to the government that it cannot lock people up for preaching and teaching Islam by falsely misrepresenting possessing Islamic literature and teaching Islam as equating to sympathizing with terrorism,” Shibly said.


Back stories here. This is what CAIR defends with no qualms:

ORLANDO, Fla. — WFTV has uncovered an Orange Countyimam’s past ties to the so-called Blind Sheik, whose extremist group is blamed for the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993.

Channel 9’s Kathi Belich broke the story of Marcus Robertson’s arrest last year. On Monday, she obtained new documents in the case that detail even more disturbing information.

Federal prosecutors said Orange County Imam Abu Taubah, aka convicted felon Marcus Robertson, has murdered people, attempted assassinations, took hostages and tried to kill police officers, all to fund attacks on U.S. soil.

So where are the charges?

Last year, months before the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, prosecutors said Robertson planned an attack on U.S. military personnel overseas.

Authorities said Robertson was bodyguard to Omar Abdel Rahman, known as the Blind Sheik. Rahman’s extremist Islamic group was blamed for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Authorities said Robertson led a band of thieves who robbed banks and the government in the 1990s. He was even accused of giving Rahman $300,000 for a much bigger New York attack on the Washington Bridge, tunnels and government buildings.
