Muslim Cab Driver Who Made Bombs That Killed U.S. Sgt. Randy Johnson, Gets 38 Years

via Anis Sardar, Bomb Maker Who Killed Sgt. Randy Johnson, Given 38 Years – NBC News.com.

LONDON — A British taxi driver was sentenced to a minimum of 38 years in prison Friday for his role in a bomb-making campaign that killed a U.S. soldier in Iraq.

Anis Abid Sardar, 38, was convicted of murder after his fingerprints were found on two bombs, linking him to another device that killed Sgt. Randy Johnson in September 2007.

He was sentenced to life in prison with a minimum sentence of 38 years, according to NBC News’ British partner ITV News. He was convicted of two counts of murder and conspiracy to murder a day earlier.

The judge, Mr Justice Globe, rejected Sardar’s claim that he had only been involved in making bombs to try to protect the Sunni Muslim community from Shiite militants.

“Your focus was either wholly or partly American,” the judge said, according to ITV News. “You had a mindset that made Americans every bit the enemy as Shia militias.”

Johnson, 34, of 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment, was killed when the armored vehicle he was traveling in was hit by an IED in Baghdad on September 27, 2007.

The landmark prosecution was the first time anyone has been convicted in a British court for murder during the Iraq War, ITV News reported.

Following the guilty verdict, Johnson’s widow, Claudia Williams, told NBC News: “I’m really relieved but for us it doesn’t change anything. We still lost Randy.”

Luke Stinson, one of the soldiers who tried to save Johnson’s life, admitted he hoping for a tough punishment.

“I hope they nail his ass to the wall and burn the wall down,” he told NBC News before the sentencing. “I wish they had the death penalty over there, because this guy deserves it.”

Two other U.S. soldiers, Jesus Bustamante and Joseph Bacani, were shot while trying to retrieve another bomb linked to Sardar on March 20, 2007.

Bacani, who was awarded a Purple Heart and had to learn how to walk again after being shot in the pelvis, told ITV News he was “relieved” at the thought of Sardar being brought to justice.

“I think it brings a sense of justice but it’s not an equivalent thing,” he said. “It doesn’t bring back a life but it does help us recuperate.”

 

Canada: Police nab 10 Muslim youths trying to join Muslim terror group ISIS

And rather than expose the jihadis, the mosques and the families that foster the advance of Islam:

Police asked the media to respect the privacy of the family members.

TORONTO — Canadian police arrested 10 youths at Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport last weekend who are suspected of wanting to go to Iraq and Syria to join the Islamic State group, a government official said Tuesday.

The official confirmed the arrests late Tuesday, but did not have any other details. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk about the case.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police later issued a statement confirming that 10 young Montreal residents had been arrested at the airport.

The official said the youths were suspected of trying to join the Islamic State group, which holds wide swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria. The RCMP statement did not specifically mention IS, but said the 10 youths were “suspected of wanting to leave the country to join jihadist groups.”

The RCMP said no charges have been brought at this time, but said the investigation is ongoing. All 10 young persons had their passports confiscated.

The RCMP said it was unable to disclose the identity of the persons detained or any information about what led to their arrest because charges have not been brought.

“We can say, however, that the families and friends of the young persons have been met by investigators,” the RCMP statement said.

Police asked the media to respect the privacy of the family members.

The arrests come about a month after a similar case in Quebec in which a young man and woman were arrested in what the government called a “preventive measure.”

El Mahdi Jamali and Sabrine Djermane, both 18, later pleaded not guilty to four charges, including attempting to leave Canada to commit a terrorist act abroad. A bail hearing for the pair is scheduled for early June.

Also in April, a judge in Edmonton ordered a psychiatric exam for an Alberta teenager who was arrested in March on allegations he was planning to leave Canada to fight with Islamic State militants.

Dearborn: Muslims jailed in $29 million Medicare fraud scheme

An update on this case. via 3 receive prison, restitution in $29 million Medicare fraud scheme – Crain’s Detroit Business. h/t Dee

An adult day care center operator and two former home health care company owners face prison and more than $10 million in restitution payments after a federal judge sentenced them for their roles in a $29 million Medicare fraud scheme.

Felicar Williams, 51, of Dearborn, received five years in prison and more than $2.4 million in court-ordered restitution after a jury conviction for conspiracy to commit health care fraud and conspiracy to receive health care kickbacks. At issue were Medicare billings from Haven Adult Day Care Center LLC, a business that was registered in Madison Heights. Prosecutors contend Williams billed Medicare through the company for psychotherapy services that were not provided.

Meanwhile, Abdul Malik Al-Jumail, 54, owner of ABC Home Care Inc. and other companies, received 10 years in prison and nearly $8.4 million in ordered restitution, and daughter Jamella Al-Jumail, 25, received four years in prison and $589,516 in restitution.

All three were sentenced by U.S. District Judge Denise Page Hood in Detroit following a 12-week jury trial that ended Sept. 30. The three were among more than a dozen co-defendants in a $29 million Medicare fraud prosecution that began in 2012, and several others have previously entered guilty pleas in that case.

In some instances, federal officials contend Williams billed Medicare for services to patients who were already deceased. Williams also sold private medical information of patients to Abdul Malik Al-Jumail, who in turn caused Medicare claims to be submitted for home health care and physical therapy services that were never provided.

Jamella Al-Jumail also allegedly submitted false Medicare billings for home health care and physical therapy. She was also accused of telling an employee the day her father was arrested to retrieve falsified records, which she and others later burned.

The elder Al-Jumail was convicted of health fraud conspiracy and conspiracy to pay and receive health care kickbacks, while Jamella Al-Jumail was convicted of health fraud conspiracy and destroying documents in connection with a federal investigation.

via Newsletter #167 – How the Muslim Brotherhood Operates in Tennessee (part 5 of 8) | Tenn. Council 4 political justice.

Private Islamic Schools in Tennessee

The Muslim Brotherhood’s plan also anticipated and set out details for the education of the “children of the American Ikhwani branch.” Ikhwan is the name that the Muslim Brotherhood uses for themselves.

Tennessee has several private Islamic full-day schools that offer an immersion style Islamic religious education in addition to secular studies. According to the Tennessee Code and State Board of Education rules that define non-public schools, these schools are considered “Category IV Church-based schools” and as such, are exempt from all education regulations. This means that the State Board of Education, Department of Education or local boards of education are prohibited from regulating the selection of faculty, textbooks or curriculum of these schools.

Pleasant View School, Memphis (PVS), pre-K – 8th grade

In 2010 PVS announced on its website that Dr. Hamed Ghazali had been hired as “the new consultant for PVS’ Islamic Studies, Quaran & Arabic.” Dr. Ghazali serves as Chairman of the Muslim American Society (MAS) Council of Islamic Schools (MASCIS), recognized as Muslim Brotherhood affiliates.

In 2004 MAS’ Secretary-General admitted in court, under oath, that MAS was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood. MAS’ own archived website details its associations with the Muslim Students Association, ISNA and NAIT – all named organizations in the Brotherhood’s Explanatory Memo.

On page 12 of the Explanatory Memo it states:

“We have a seed for a ‘comprehensive Dawa educational’ organization: We have the Dawa’ section in ISNA….the center run by brother Hamed Ghazali…”

A Hamed Ghazali is listed individually in the Muslim Brotherhood telephone directory introduced into evidence during the HLF prosecution.

MAS is one of the organizations the UAE included on its terrorist designation because it is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood.

During the joint MAS – ICNA 2012 annual convention, Hamed Ghazali, told the audience in Arabic that “Allah gave us the Jews” as the primary historical and religious example of those who “take the wrong path.” A recent article described him as “taking a moderate approach to Islam.”

Ghazali spoke at the “Zakah Seminar” on December 6, 2014 at the Islamic Center of Tennessee. “Zakah” (sometimes spelled “zakat”) is the charity vehicle that was the subject of the HLF terrorism financing prosecution.

On April 8, 2012, PVS announced that Dr. Mohammed Malley was hired to be the new principal.  Dr. Malley was the President of his university’s MSA. He later served with the Brotherhood’s, MAS- Austin Chapter.

Dr. Malley was introduced at a PVS fundraiser keynoted by Kifah Mustapha, an active member of the Chicago-area Muslim community.  Mustapha was dismissed from serving as the first Muslim chaplain for the Illinois State Police after his ties to the HAMAS-support network were discovered.   It was disclosed that he had been a paid employee for the Holy Land Foundation and is listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF prosecution.

Annoor Academy, Knoxville, pre-K – 8th grade

The school’s 2013 promo video displays a row of textbooks titled “What Islam Is All About.” This textbook was written by Muslim convert Yahiya Emerick who said that he wrote this book in standard English to teach Muslim children living in the U.S. about Islam.

Emerick’s textbook, following the dictates of the Quran, warns students about getting too friendly with non-Muslims and denigrates Jews and Christians and their religions and beliefs.  More than anything, Emerick offers Islam as a civilization alternative reflecting the Muslim Brotherhood plan for the West.

Emerick speaks at the ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) conferences. ICNA is among the 29 organizations listed in the Muslim Brotherhood plan. ICNA has long held its annual conferences in conjunction with the MAS (Muslim American Society.)

ICNA’s pursuit of establishing Islam as the “sole basis of global society and governance” was published in its 2010 Member’s Hand Book which also sanctioned deceit while proselytizing their way to this goal.

Mark Durie, theologian and human rights activist, cites Emerick’s textbook in his blog post about the Muslim Brotherhood agenda for establishing Islam, ie, the Muslim Brotherhood plan. . Durie explains that the Brotherhood’s plan is about succeeding in phases. He quotes Emerick’s textbook at p. 378 as “reflect[ing] the Brotherhood’s ideology of phases for establishing Islam.”

Nadeem Siddiqi, Chairman of the Tennessee Islamist political organization, the American Center for Outreach, is currently a board member of the Annoor Academy. Siddiqi works closely with the “unofficial” imam in Knoxville Rafiq Mahdi who also serves as the Director of Community Development for ICNA Relief USA, the charity arm of ICNA named in the Muslim Brotherhood plan.

Abdulrahman Murphy, a former CAIR intern who spent time training in Saudi Arabia, was faculty at the Annoor Academy until sometime in 2014. Murphy also worked with the UT Knoxville MSA and was a speaker at ISNA’s 2013 conference in Dallas. Both the MSA and ISNA are named Muslim Brotherhood affiliates. He is appears to be a very close associate with imam Suhaib Webb who was sent by the Brotherhood’s MAS to study at Al-Ahzar University in Cairo. Webb was then hired as the Imam for the Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC) in Roxbury, a mosque managed by MAS-Boston.  This mosque is the sister campus of the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) mosque attended by the Boston marathon bombers.

Murphy and Webb both teach at the Ella Collins Institute at the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC). Webb’s associations included al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki.

Nashville International Academy (NIA), pre-K – 7th grade

The Islamic School of Nashville was established by the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN) in 1995. In 1999, under the guidance of the ICN’s imam Abdulhakim Mohamed who had served at the radical al-Farooq mosque in Brooklyn, New York. The school was renamed the Nashville international Academy and ICN advertised for a principal with the Brotherhood’s ISNA organization.

Even though the school did not meet Tennessee’s statutory criteria to be granted Category IV status, the State Board of Education approved their application in 2007 for this purpose.

In 2012 the warranty deed for NIA showed the owner as D.B. Client Service, LLC.  Devon Bank in Chicago created D.B. Client Service to manage special clients. Devon Bank has been involved with sharia compliant financial products since early 2000. In 2008 it was reported that sharia compliant products made up more than 75% of the bank’s mortgage portfolio.  Devon Bank products receive their Shariah compliant blessing from the Sharia Supervisory Board of America whose Vice-President is Mufti Usmani.

Usmani, is a jihadist who has ties to the Taliban and has called for jihad against the West. He is a central leader with the madrassa that produced the Taliban and he has publicly endorsed suicide bombing.

Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi says “sharia finance is nothing less than ‘Jihad with money.’ As al-Qaradawi explains, ‘God has ordered us to fight enemies with our lives and with our money.’”

NYC: Mohammed fleecing tourists with $30 hot dogs outside 9/11 Memorial

via NYC Hot Dog vendor charged tourists $30 outside 9/11 Memorial | Daily Mail Online h/t TROP

A crooked New York City food vendor has been caught on camera as he successfully rips off tourists.

Ahmed Mohammed is seen charging individuals anywhere from $3 to a whopping $30 for a hot dog, and as much as $15 for a pretzel.

Crook: Ahmed Mohammed (above) was caught on camera selling hot dogs for $30 to tourists in New York City outside the 9/11 Memorial

 

What’s more, he is doing this just outside the 9/11 Memorial in downtown Manhattan.

‘I just felt like I was getting ripped off, and it’s just making the 9/11 grounds like a big tourist trap,’ one woman told NBC 4.

Another man said the price of his hot dog kept changing, going from $15 to $10, prompting the man to hand back the food to Mohammed even though he had already taken a bite.

‘To rip-off somebody, to charge them $35 for a hot dog and a pretzel, that leaves a terrible impression,’ said Jessica Lappin of the Alliance for Downtown New York.

She became aware of the situation when fights began breaking out because of Mohammed’s prices.

That’s not the only problem either, as other customers say the vendor will shortchange them after their purchase.

When a reporter for the network confronted him about his prices, he suddenly declared he did not speak English, though he did offer to sell them a hot dog for $3, which is still far steeper than the normal $1 charged by most vendors in the city.

Mohammed is currently under investigation by the Alliance.

 

Canada: Beware of the Muslim Brotherhood, expert warns

cair-mbhood-links

via Beware of the Muslim Brotherhood, expert warns | Ottawa Citizen.

Authorities should be concerned about the unseen hand of the Muslim Brotherhood gripping sections of Canada’s diverse Muslim community, says a U.S. security expert.

The movement has planted its revivalist interpretation of Islam, political ideology and activism among some Muslims here and sees itself as a minder and broker between them and the rest of society, Lorenzo Vidino, who specializes in Islamism and political violence, told the Senate’s national security committee recently.

“They basically aim to be the gatekeepers to Muslim communities, that whenever politicians, governments or the media try to get the Muslim voice, if there were such a thing, they would go through them, sort of the self‑appointed leaders of Muslim communities,” he said.

Vidino is director of the program on extremism at George Washington University and author of The New Muslim Brotherhood in the West (Columbia University Press, 2010). He sees no direct links to terrorism among the group’s western supporters. In fact, some work to prevent violent radicalization, he said.

“It would be an analytical mistake to lump them, as some do, with al-Qaida or ISIL. These are not organizations that plan attacks in the West, and actually in many cases they do condemn them.”

The problem is more indirect, Vidino said. “Generally speaking, the movement has not abandoned violence as a tool to advance its agenda.” Tactically, it doesn’t pursue violence, “but it’s not heartfelt,” he said.

“They have this narrative where they lump together foreign policy issues with issues like cartoons and so on as part of a big narrative that proves this point that the West hates Muslims and Islam. It’s that mainstreaming of this narrative which is very much the staircase to violent radicalization and the brotherhood does mainstream that. It provides somewhat of a fertile environment.

“That kind of narrative in the mind a 16- or 18-year-old is extremely dangerous, because violence is justified when Muslims are under attack. If it’s OK in Gaza and Afghanistan, why is it not OK in the West, where you’re also telling me that Islam is under attack?”

The brotherhood is a banned terrorist organization in some Middle East and other countries, notably Egypt, where the movement was born. But it has different profile in the West.

To start, there is no group calling itself the “Muslim Brotherhood” in North America. Instead, a few hundred sophisticated, politically savvy and well-funded supporters in Canada have over the past 50 years created vocal and visible organizations that represent a very small part of the Muslim community. They exert a disproportional influence over mosques, schools and spaces where Muslims come together, said Vidino.

While they don’t take orders from any Arab capital, they “are part of an informal network where you have strong links based on personal and financial connections, and at the end of the day what matters the most: ideology. They all embrace a certain world view.”

Groups sometimes go to great lengths to sever or hide such ties, Vidino told the committee. He said they include the Muslim Association of Canada and what used to be called CAIR-CAN, now the National Council of Canadian Muslims.

Another group he identified is The International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy – Canada, IRFAN. Its charitable status was revoked after the government alleged the organization sent almost $15 million to groups affiliated with the Palestinian terror outfit Hamas between 2005 and 2009. IRFAN has since been listed as a banned terrorist organization in Canada.

Ihsaan Gardee, executive director of the NCCM, said Vidino is misinformed.

“The NCCM is an independent, non-partisan and non-profit grassroots Canadian civil liberties and advocacy organization with a public track record spanning 15 years,” said Gardee. “The NCCM is not a religious group and does not and has never had any affiliations, links, ideological or of any other kind, with the Muslim Brotherhood or any other overseas group.”

The Muslim Association of Canada did not respond to a request for comment. But its website traces its roots to the teachings of Egyptian Hassan al-Banna, who founded the brotherhood in 1928 to revive and integrate traditional Islamic teaching and practices, such as sharia law, with modern society.

Vidion’s parting advice to the committee: “Engage with knowledge. Know that they have an agenda.”


The U.S. was warned too.
