Chicago: Muslim jihad suspect searched ‘suicide bombings’, “jihad is obligatory”

CHICAGO — Federal prosecutors say a 19-year-old Chicago-area man accused of trying to join the Islamic State group searched the terms “suicide” and “suicide bombings” on his phone before his 2014 arrest.

That new detail in Mohammed Hamzah Khan’s case came in a court filing in which prosecutors oppose a motion for his release pending trial. The late Tuesday filing seeks to show Khan would pose a serious threat if freed.

Prosecutors say Khan also searched the phrase, “jihad is obligatory.”

Defense attorney Thomas Durkin has told a judge that a psychiatrist determined Khan isn’t mentally ill. Durkin said it’s more an issue of poor critical-thinking skills.

Durkin said Khan could be released to get counseling and wouldn’t pose a threat.

Khan has denied attempting to provide material support to terrorists.

Minneapolis: Somali Muslim terror suspects used college loans to finance jihad travels

They should have done what Democratic Congressman and Muslim Keith Hakim Ellison did, let the Muslim Brotherhood pay for the trip.

Two Twin Cities men charged with conspiracy to fight alongside terrorists now face financial fraud charges for allegedly using their college loans to purchase airline tickets to fly to the Middle East.

In a superseding indictment unsealed Tuesday by the U.S. attorney’s office in Minnesota, Hamza Ahmed and Hanad Mustafe Musse were charged with using more than $1,000 of financial aid provided to them.

Ahmed, 21, from Savage, and Musse, 19, of Minneapolis, are among seven young Somali-Americans from Minnesota who face charges of planning to leave the United States and fight alongside Islamic extremist groups. Six of them were charged in April.

During the last two years, more than 20 Somali-Americans from Minnesota have left to fight alongside terrorists with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, according to the FBI.

The new indictment says that Ahmed and Musse bought airline tickets on Nov. 8, 2014 from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport to Europe, using more than $1,000 in federal college financial aid. Hamza used his aid money to purchase a flight to Istanbul, Turkey, authorities say. Musse used similar funds to buy a ticket to travel to Greece. From those two destinations, authorities say the pair then planned on heading to Syria. Hamza had actually boarded his flight when he was ordered off the plane by officers from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

In a related matter, Abdurahman Daud, 20, another alleged conspirator, made his first appearance in federal court in Minneapolis on Tuesday morning before U.S. Chief District Judge Micheal Davis. Daud was arrested by the FBI in San Diego in late April, along with alleged conspirator Mohamed Farah, after they drove from Minneapolis to California. They were accompanied on the trip by a confidential informant who was working for the FBI.

Daud and Farah allegedly planned on acquiring false documents in San Diego in order to cross into Mexico. From there, they planned on flying to the Middle East with the intent of entering Syria to fight, authorities say.

Daud, who is charged with providing material support to terrorists, is scheduled to appear for a detention hearing Friday afternoon in front of Davis. Farah is charged with conspiracy and is expected to be returned to the Twin Cities later this week. Farah’s brother, Adnan, was arrested last month in connection with this case and is charged with providing support to terrorists. He is being held in the Sherburne County jail.

Ayan Farah, their mother, attended Daud’s hearing along with about three dozen men, women and children from the Somali community in the Twin Cities. She said she spoke to Adnan recently and said he appeared to be doing well. “It’s very difficult,” she said.


Three dozen Somali Muslims went to court? Don’t they go to work or school? That means you – the American taxpayer – are subsidizing these terror supporters.

The real Islamophobes strike again. Their fear is based on previous violent actions by Muslims. And that’s how sharia creeps.

Audio: American Woman Leaves Islam, Forced Into Hiding

via CHILLING INTERVIEW: American Woman Leaves Islam. Forced Into Hiding… » Louder With Crowder. h/t Bella

This week on “Louder With Crowder” we were gifted with a chilling interview, in which a woman shares her journey as she leaves Islam. We were joined by “Q”. An anonymous woman who is currently in the process of converting from Islam [back] to Christianity, and is actively trying to separate from her Muslim husband. She has been forced into semi-hiding, and to protect her and her children we have done our best to keep her anonymous. She spoke from personal experience, but made some shocking claims regarding Islam, Islamic marriage, common occurrence in abuse of women and terrorism. Some of them sounded unbelievable… so we did our research. Turns out her claims are well verified and all within the realm of not only possibility, but likelihood. Watch the video, and check out the sources below.

NYC: Sheen Center Enforces Sharia, Cancels Event feat Play About ‘Mohammed’

via Sheen Center Cancels Event Featuring Neil LaBute Play About ‘Mohammed’ – NYTimes.com. [“Mohammed” Gets A Boner by Neil LaBute]

A downtown Manhattan performance center has canceled an event featuring a new play by Neil LaBute with a title making reference to “Mohammed,” on the grounds that the play is offensive to Muslims.

The event, called “Playwrights for a Cause” and featuring four new short plays about censorship in the arts, was set to take place on June 14 at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture in Greenwich Village, as the opening of the Planet Connections Theater Festivity, a monthlong arts festival at various locations.

On Tuesday, the Sheen Center canceled the contract for the event, which was organized as a benefit for the National Coalition Against Censorship.

William Spencer Reilly, the executive director of the Sheen Center, said in an email that the play and its title was not in keeping with the mission of the center, which opened last year with funding from the archdiocese of New York and is named for former Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.

“When an artistic project maligns any faith group, that project clearly falls outside of our mission to highlight the good, the true, and the beautiful as they have been expressed throughout the ages,” Mr. Reilly said, referring to the center’s mission statement, which describes it as serving Catholic and non-Catholic audiences alike.

The Sheen Center, he added, “will not be a forum that mocks or satirizes another faith group.”

Mr. LaBute’s one-person play, which was written for the event, is about an actor asked to perform in an offensive satire. A description posted online reads: “The prophet ‘Mohammed’ stands on a barren stage, recalling the first time he made love to a white woman. Is this reality or a theatrical convention? Where do the lines between ‘satire’ and ‘censorship’ intersect or is nothing sacred when it comes to the theater?”

The play’s title refers to “Mohammed” as having an erection. In an email, Mr. LaBute said that the play did not depict “the actual prophet ‘Muhammad’ (spelled differently than my title),” but declined to say more, citing his desire to preserve the audience’s sense of surprise.

In an email, Glory Kadigan, the founder of Planet Connections, described the play as “a discussion of whether or not it’s all right to poke fun at religion or religious figures.” She said the group did not have titles or scripts for the plays when the contract was signed. “None of us knew what the writers would write,” she said. The group is seeking another stage, she said.

Mr. Reilly said he had signed the contract in February but had only become aware of the play’s title earlier this week, after a staff member noticed it on the Planet Connections website. After seeing the script, he decided to cancel the event in light of what he called the play’s “clear offense to Muslims.”

The other plays written for the occasion — by Erik Ehn, Halley Feiffer and Israel Horovitz — treat censorship issues relating to race, gender and sexuality, which were also set to be discussed in a panel discussion following the performances.

Mr. LaBute, in a statement, said the Sheen Center was “was absolutely within their right” in canceling the contract but said he was saddened by the decision.

“This event was meant to shine another light on censorship and it was unexpected to have the plug pulled, quite literally, by an organization that touts the phrase ‘for thought and culture’ on their very Web site,” Mr. LaBute said. “Both in life and in the arts, this is not a time to hide or be afraid; recent events have begged for artists and citizens to stand and be counted.”


Remind the staff at Sheen Center of that very point. Staff emails here.
