U.S. pushback against Muslim refugees growing

It’s time to push out the politicians and organizations destroying America. via U.S. pushback against Muslim refugees ‘growing’

WND has discovered what amounts to the government playbook for countering the rising “backlash” against the secret planting of Muslim refugees into cities and towns across America.

The 2013 report anticipated two years ago that resistance would increase to the seeding of communities with Muslim refugees if counter measures were not undertaken.

The report was prophetic.

Last year, WND reported how the mayor of Athens, Georgia, requested the federal government not send any refugees to her town until she could get a handle on the costs. Earlier this year, another high-profile case of pushback emerged in Spartanburg, South Carolina, in Rep. Trey Gowdy’s district, a story WND first reported in April.

In Wyoming, the only state that does not have a refugee resettlement agreement with the U.S. State Department, Gov. Matt Mead was “exploring” whether he should start such a program. But after stories in the local media and on WND, Mead dropped the plan.

Now, WND has learned the government and its contractors have a stock plan on how to deal with what they call “backlash” to refugee resettlement in American cities.

Titled “Resettlement at Risk: Meeting Emerging Challenges to Refugee Resettlement in Local Communities,” the report by one of the federal government’s top resettlement contractors admits that communities “across the country” are pushing back against the refugee program, especially when it involves the infusion of Muslims into their city or town.

In the wake of the report, the Obama administration has handed out millions of dollars in grants to organizations like Welcoming America, which works to “educate” elected officials and the public in “receiving communities” before refugees arrive. Welcoming America was started in 2010 with seed money from George Soros’s Open Society Institute.

The U.S. State Department, working with the United Nations, accepts about 70,000 foreign refugees for permanent resettlement in the United States each year, distributing them to more than 190 cities and towns across America. (See list of 190 office locations in every state)

Dealing with uncooperative elected leaders

The report lays out a strategy for dealing with uncooperative politicians who insist on representing the concerns of their constituents as opposed to the interests of the refugee industry.

The report calls for “new tools to fight back against a determined legislator or governor who has decided to challenge resettlement for political or other reasons.”

One of those tools is Obama-supporter David Lubell’s Welcoming America. The group is dispatched to areas where native-born Americans are not sufficiently “welcoming” and runs advertising campaigns on TV, radio and billboards touting the economic contributions of refugees and other “new Americans.”

The 2013 report, authored by the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society and financed by a wealthy New York family foundation, cites three examples of push back – in Georgia, Tennessee and New Hampshire.

In Georgia, Gov. Nathan Deal in 2011 ordered a hold on federal money flowing to refugee resettlement contractors until a review of the program could be completed.

A group of residents and at least one elected official in the city of Clarkston complained that the city was being overwhelmed by refugees and the governor wanted to investigate.

“Although the governor’s office offered no reason for the review, it is believed that an elected official from Clarkston, a small city east of Atlanta, complained to the governor on behalf of a constituent,” the report states. “The official, who in 2003 had introduced legislation to require resettlement agencies to notify local government officials if 10 or more refugees would be resettled in a community at one time, told the governor’s office that Clarkston was at ‘capacity.’”

That prompted an army of refugee advocates and lobbyists to leap into action.

“Facing the prospect of staff layoffs and the disruption of critical services for refugees, the network of agencies providing services to refugees created an informal coalition to advocate for the release of the federal funds,” the report says. “The coalition worked to gather information and educate elected officials, influential supporters of the governor, as well as police chiefs and school officials, about the economic benefits of refugee resettlement in Georgia.”

The coalition got U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., along with the Clarkston mayor, to write a letter to the governor in support of refugee resettlement.

In December 2011 Deal relented and released federal funds for the resettlements to continue in Georgia.

The resettlement contractor did, however, agree to decrease the number of refugees being sent to Georgia the following year by 20 percent.

The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society is one of nine government contractors who do the resettlement work in more than 190 cities and towns across the U.S. These contractors subcontract with more than 350 smaller agencies and church groups to get the refugees settled into subsidized housing, get their children enrolled in school and families signed up for Medicaid. Among the other nine major contractors are the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Church World Services, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, Episcopal Migration Service, World Relief and the International Rescue Committee. These agencies describe themselves as nonprofit “charitable” organizations but they have the majority of their budgets covered by government grants.

Hebrew Immigrant Aid’s 30-page report says the danger of push back is exacerbated when Muslims are part of the equation. Americans have been less receptive to Muslim refugees than those coming from a Christian or other religious background.

Hebrew Immigrant Aid cited fear of terrorism as one of the primary concerns that residents have with Muslim refugees settling in their communities.

“…although cases of refugees connected to terrorism have been rare and refugees are among the most highly scrutinized and vetted immigrants in the U.S., anti-immigrant groups have suggested that the program is a gateway for terrorists. The recruitment of young Somalis by terrorist cells and the arrest of two resettled Iraqi refugees in Kentucky on terrorism charges have provided fuel for these allegations,” the report says.

Since the report was written in February 2013, scores more Somali refugees have been arrested for providing material support for overseas Islamic terror groups such as al-Shabab. Still others have left the country to fight for ISIS and al-Shabab.

Just last month six Somalis from Minnesota were arrested for trying repeatedly to fly to Turkey and join ISIS, leading U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger to proclaim, “We have a terror recruitment problem in Minnesota,” WND reported.

Shifting the blame to Americans

But the report blames the backlash not on any failure of the government to properly vet refugees but on “anti-Muslim views” held by native-born Americans. The report also points a finger at refugee watchdog Ann Corcoran, who started the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog in 2007 after she learned that Muslim refugees were arriving in her rural farm community in western Maryland.

Jason Lee, a local pastor and director of World Relief Spartanburg, spoke at a meeting last Monday of the Spartanburg County Council. One of the arguments he made was that it was good that some of the refugees coming to South Carolina were non-Christians.

“He said one of the advantages of the program is we can spread the gospel,” Jeffrey said. “One of the holes in that argument is that the money is coming from the federal government and it cannot be used to spread the gospel. They have a contract which they must sign obligating them not to evangelize, and if he doesn’t know that, he should know it, because he is the director of World Relief in Spartanburg.”

Corcoran said the resettlement industry compiles an “enemies list” in local communities where resettlements encounter resistance.

“They do research and develop a list of enemies and potential enemies,” she said.

And that’s not all.

“We recently learned that instructions have gone out nationwide to give citizens no information when they call a resettlement agency to ask for the abstract describing plans for their town,” Corcoran said. “It just further enhances their reputation for being secretive.

Brooklyn: Muslim pleads guilty to conspiring to kill U.S. troops

saddiq-al-abbadi

via Yemeni national Saddiq al-Abbadi pleads guilty – CNN.com.

A Yemeni national has pleaded guilty to conspiring to kill U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, authorities said Tuesday.

Saddiq al-Abbadi also admitted to providing material support to al Qaeda, federal prosecutors in New York said in a statement.

He could receive a life sentence.

“The defendant was a high-level al Qaeda operative with ties to the terrorist group’s senior leadership in both Pakistan and Yemen,” said acting U.S. Attorney Kelly T. Currie. “He fought in battles against U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, tried to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan by luring them to a compound rigged with explosives, and helped an American citizen gain entry to al Qaeda.”

Al-Abbadi, 40, was among two men arrested in Saudi Arabia and then transferred to U.S. custody. Al-Abbadi had already served more than five years of a 12-year prison sentence in Saudi Arabia before he was handed over.

Prosecutors say al-Abbadi traveled from Yemen to Iraq, where he fought from 2005 to 2007 with al Qaeda-linked forces against American soldiers. He went to Pakistan in 2008, worked with senior members of al Qaeda and then traveled to Afghanistan to fight U.S. forces there, according to the complaint.

After that, he went to Afghanistan. In June 2008, he attempted to booby-trap a compound, but U.S. forces noticed the wiring and also saw ordnance lying around. No one was killed as the troops left, and the area was destroyed later.

Al-Abbadi also helped American Bryant Neal Vinas join al Qaeda.

Vinas, a native of New York, pleaded guilty in January 2009 to charges of aiding al Qaeda and helping attack a U.S. military base in Afghanistan, but his case was kept secret until July 2009. Authorities accused Vinas of firing rockets at the base along with others in September 2008, and of providing al Qaeda with information about the New York transit system and the Long Island Railroad. Vinas had been arrested in Pakistan late in 2008.

Ali Alvi, the other man who was arrested with al-Abbadi, has pleaded not guilty, according to media reports.

 

Senate Dems tell Obama to resettle 65,000 Syrian Muslim refugees

Refugees displaced by Obama, to be “resettled” into your neighborhoods, on your tax dollar, to rob your children’s futures. via Senate Dems call on Obama to resettle 65,000 Syrian refugees | TheHill.

A group of Senate Democrats is urging the Obama administration to allow at least 65,000 Syrian refugees to settle inside the United States.

“While the United States is the largest donor of humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees, we must also dramatically increase the number of Syrian refugees that we accept for resettlement,” the group of 14 lawmakers — led by Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) — said Thursday.

The group letter noted the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) wants to resettle 130,000 Syrian refugees over the next two years and has thus far submitted more than 12,000 resettlement cases to the United States for consideration.

However, only 700 have been let into the U.S. since the Syrian conflict began nearly five years ago, “an unacceptably low number,” the senators say.

“Following the international community’s tragic failure to shelter Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi genocide, the United States played a leadership role in establishing the international legal regime for the protection of refugees,” they wrote. “In keeping with this history, we urge your Administration to work to accept at least 50 percent of Syrian refugees whom UNHCR is seeking to resettle, consistent with our nation’s traditional practice under both Republican and Democratic presidents.”

On the same day, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) called the resettlement effort a “serious mistake” because of the security risks it poses.

The U.S. could resettle around 2,000 Syrian refugees this fiscal year and potentially thousands more in fiscal 2016 under the State Department-led effort. The Department of Homeland Security would have the authority to approve the admissions.

Senate Democrats stressed that the conflict has displaced half of Syria’s 23 million people and that countries like Lebanon, with a populace of 4.2 million, has taken in 1.2 million refugees.

Senators concluded by saying “it is a moral, legal, and national security imperative for the United States to lead by example in addressing the world’s worst refugee crisis of our time by greatly increasing the number of Syrian refugees who are resettled in our country.”


It is Obama who keeps funding, training and arming Syrian jihadists. It is Obama who is fomenting war in Syria. Syrians are displaced because of Obama.

Obama and the Senate Democrats should each be required to take in and financially support – for their entire stay – the Syrian Muslims they import.

 

Suspended, Terror-linked Canadian Homeland Security Advisor Invited By US Govt to Conference on Terrorism

via Suspended Candian Homeland Security Advisor Invited By US Government To Conference On Extremism; Hussein Hamdan Has His Own Extremist Ties.

Canadian media is reporting that an advisor to a Canadian agency similar to the US Department of Homeland Security who was suspended over controversial ties has been invited by  the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of National Security to speak at a conference on fighting violent extremism. According to a CBC report:

May 23, 2015 The Canadian government might not want him anymore, but the department of Homeland Security still wants to hear what Hussein Hamdani has to say about deradicalization.

The Hamilton lawyer was suspended as an adviser on Muslim issues and security for the federal government earlier this month. But now, officials from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Department of National Security have invited him to speak at a conference on fighting violent extremism.

So in July, Hamdani will be heading to Washington, DC to advise government officials at the local, state and federal levels – even though he’s been suspended from doing so in his own country.

‘This is consistent with what I have been saying all along: I have been vetted already, multiple times by CSIS and RCMP as well as U.S. security agencies,’ Hamdani told CBC News.

‘Thankfully, the Americans are not playing politics’

Minister of Public Safety Steven Blaney’s office is looking into questions raised by the French TVA network about politically charged statements it alleges Hamdani made as a university student, and allegations about radical organizations that it says Hamdani had associations with.

Hamdani says he believes the decision is politically motivated because of his support for Justin Trudeau and the federal Liberals. He denies all the allegations outright.

Read the rest here.

Last month, the GMBDW discussed a Point de Bascule blog report that identified Hussein Hamdani’s ties to Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas related organizations and which included:

1) In a guide that was published by the Muslim Students Association in 1996, Hussein Hamdani encouraged Muslim student activists ‘to Islamize campus politics’;

2) In 2003, the Ihya Foundation, an organization led by Hamdani, joined with the Saudi World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) to launch the Reviving the Islamic Spirit conventions in Toronto. In 2012, WAMY’s charitable status was revoked after the Canada Revenue Agency concluded that it funded an Al-Qaeda-linked organization;

3) From 2005 to 2009, two organizations led by Hamdani transferred money to Hamas’ fund collector, IRFAN-Canada. The Canada Revenue Agency revoked IRFAN’s charitable status in 2011 after having concluded that, for the 2005-2009 period alone, it transferred $14.6 million to the terrorist organization Hamas. In April 2014, IRFAN was added to Canada’s list of outlawed terrorist groups.

New Jersey: Muslim who arranged wife’s murder & blamed Islamophobes, gets life sentence

Ain’t Islam grand? via Kashif Parvaiz Sentenced To At Least 73 Years In Wife’s Killing « CBS New York.

MORRISTOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A judge threw the book Thursday at a Brooklyn man who conspired to kill his wife while the couple was on a walk with one of their young sons in New Jersey.

Kashif Parvaiz, who was convicted in February of scheming with his Massachusetts girlfriend to kill his wife and make it look like a random attack, was sentenced to at least 73 years in prison without parole, CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported.

The August 2011 shooting occurred while Parvaiz and his wife, 27-year-old Nazish Noorani, walked with their son in Boonton, near Noorani’s family home.

Antoinette Stephen pleaded guilty to murder and other offenses and testified against him. The Billerica resident was having an affair with Parvaiz and has admitted firing the fatal shots.

She faces up to 30 years in prison when she’s sentenced next month.

Parvaiz showed no emotion when his brother-in-law, Kaleem Noorani, called him out as a murderous fiend in court.

“You are a failure as a husband, father, son, as a human being, and above all, you are an evil murderer,” he said.

Parvaiz was shot in the leg and claimed they were targeted in an anti-Muslim attack. But his story unraveled, and Stephen eventually admitted she killed Noorani under orders from Parvaiz.

Investigators recovered the murder weapon from his SUV.

The defense team asked the judge to Parvaiz to 30 years, but prosecutor Matthew Troiano strongly disagreed, calling Parvaiz a coward who endangered his own son.

“He put that little boy into direct harm’s way,” Troiano said. “After your wife is shot, you do nothing. You don’t run to her. You run away.”

At the trial, the prosecution presented evidence that Parvaiz considered other ways to kill his wife, including poisoning her.

Gilson called “cold-blooded” and “beyond redemption” in sentencing him.

“He did in fact show us plenty of remorse and regret and emotion,” defense attorney John Bruno said. “Unfortunately, those feelings did not come through to the trial judge.”

Parvaiz is planning to appeal his conviction and sentence.

He was convicted of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, endangering the welfare of a child, child abuse, hindering apprehension by lying to police and weapons charges.

San Diego: Taxpayers now funding Muslim’s halal school lunches

Taxation for Islamization. Recall San Diego county has been overwhelmed by Iraqi Immigrants.

Here’s just one side-affect, via San Diego school serves halal food after students go hungry. h/t TROP

A San Diego school added “halal” food to its weekly menu after receiving complaints from Muslim parents who found their children to be going hungry.

The moves comes as part of a pilot programme that aims to serve minority students, which make up majority of the student body at Crawford High School.

Under an Obama administration program, schools qualify for universal free lunches if over 40 per cent of the families of the students qualify for some other federal assistance.

Parents complained to the school administrators that their children were coming home hungry; despite the school offering free lunches to the entire student body.

San Diego Unified’s Food Services Director Gary Petill wondered why, if all the students had access to free food, they were going hungry. It was then discovered that many of the students were not eating because the food was not halal. The school then added halal-approved chili lime chicken bowl to the menu twice a week, after which Petill said that 300 more students were eating on those days.

“It’s Mary’s Free Range, vegetarian-fed, antibiotic-free, hormone-free, air-chilled organic chicken that you’d find in Whole Foods,” Petill said.

He further noted the few cents more it costs per drumstick is offset by the larger number of students eating as schools are reimbursed by the federal government based on the number of meals served.

The federal government doesn’t sell anything (except lies). It’s funded by American taxpayers.

Even non-Muslim students enjoyed the new offering at the school cafeteria. 17-year-old Rosa Duarte joined her Muslim friends in campaigning for the halal lunches.

“I normally will not eat at school because the food options were not good,” Duarte said. “But with the halal chicken drumstick bowl, I actually am eating at school and I have more energy to go through the day and then go to my sports afterwards.”

Petil said based on early indications, the school district would continue to expand its options to meet the needs and tastes of other minority students going forward.


The false meme being pushed by conniving Muslims and swallowed hook, line and sinker by the Islamophilic media is that poor Muslim immigrant students are going hungry. It’s nonsense. If you don’t like the “free” food, buy and bring your own.

The same false meme was used in New York: Push for taxpayer-funded sharia food In NYC schools.
