City of Palo Alto Gave Grant To Radical Muslim Group for Islamic EID Dawa Event

Four and a half months after EID, but purposely scheduled to interfere with Jewish and Christian holidays. via Militant Islam Monitor.

The American Muslim Voice Foundation is a radical Islamist organisation which uses the euphemism “diversity” for dawa and practices stealth jihad to Islamize the United States. They pepper their website with quotes from Martin Luther King and Eleanor Roosevelt to disquise their hard core Islamist agenda. Their most recent event was an Eid Festival which was cosponsored by The City of Palo Alto “Know Your Neighbors Grant” and was an exercise in da’wa i.e. intended to introduce Americans to Islamic customs so that they would move from “fear to friendship” thus implying that Islamophobia is rampant in the United States. The American Muslim Voice Foundations Partners with virtually every Islamist group in the United States and left wing organisations dedicated to tearing down American institutions and civil society. The AMV was founded and is directed by Samina Faheem Sundas who lists among her “spiritual consultants” the radical cleric Imam Zaid Shakir “who contends that Muslims cannot accept the legitimacy of the existing American order and claims that organizations such as Hamas and al Qaeda are pursuing manifestly legitimate objectives.” http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=974

MIM: Sundas is also a member of the Human Rights Commission in the County of Santa Clara, California. Human Rights Commissions are notorious for being platforms for Islamists.http://sccgov.iqm2.com/citizens/Detail_BoardMember.aspx?ID=2129

(The fact that Sundas’ AMV organisation was given a grant by the City Council of Palo Alto while she is an active member of the Human Rights Commission in Santa Clara, California could conceivably constitute a conflict of interests.)

MIM: The Communications director of the AMV is Abdus Sattar Ghazali who runs a website called the American Muslim Perspective (AMP) with is very similiar in format to that of the AMV and espouses an Islamist anti American agenda.

MIM:The AMV and AMP websites represent the new “Americanized” version of Jihad which makes use of patriotic symbolism, and the mantra of civil rights as a front for their militant Islamist agendas.The red white and blue all American website format shows how the Islamists are establishing themselves and the ‘Kaliphate’ i.e., trying to replace the Constitution with the Koran to reach their goal of establishing a ” United States of Allah” in order to push their militant Islamist agendas from within. Muslim groups such as the AMV are joining forces with the left as can be seen in the list of groups they are promoting and working with below.

MIM: Note the upbeat and enthusiastic tone of the article completely oblivious to the AMV’s Islamist ties and agenda and playing into their Kumbaya narrative. It is also important to note that Sundas cynically exploits the timing of Jewish and Muslim holidays to hold the AMV event to make it appear that Muslims are no different from them and Islamic practices are in synch with other religions, a standard da’wa canard.

Excerpt from: “Eid Festival brings together residents for Muslim celebration of peace, sharing”

“…The festival will include a free gourmet Pakistani dinner, desserts from around the world, ethnic dress, henna art painting, Nasheed spiritual singing and a photo booth where people can have their picture taken dressed in ethnic attire.

American Muslim Voice Foundation, of which Sundas is the founding executive director, is sponsoring the festival. The City of Palo Alto is a co-sponsor through a $1,000 Know Your Neighbors grant.”

“…Although Eid does not traditionally fall around Christmas and Hanukkah — in 2014 it began on July 28 – Sundas hopes that introducing the celebration around the Christian and Jewish holidays will help people to see that Muslims also practice loving their neighbors.,,”

Video: The $100M Turkish-Funded Mega Mosque in Maryland

A reader wanted to remind us of these foreign-funded mega mosque complex being built in Maryland. Here’s a video tour. It appears to sit in the middle of a residential neighborhood.

The Turkish American Community Center (TACC) currently under construction in Lanham, MD (between I-495/I-95 and Md. Route 193) is a $90 million, multi-use project, built to serve as a community and cultural gathering place. The project consists of five main buildings, an underground parking garage, and a geothermal well field on a 15 acre site. The five buildings, each designed with a unique style, are: a 760 person mosque constructed using 16th century classical Ottoman architecture; a two-story, 19,990 sq.ft Cultural Center Building; a 9,850 sq.ft recreational building; a 43,450 sq.ft traditional Turkish bath, indoor pool, and sports center; and 18,500 sq.ft of guest housing. Much of the campus sits atop a 150,700 sq.ft underground parking garage, providing access to all of the main buildings.As the YouTube video below illuminates, the TACC buildings are framed with a complex array of reinforced concrete elements, including 40-foot wide arches, rigid frames, 210 foot tall minarets, and a massive 80-cubic-yard central dome structure. To create these complicated structures, the project team utilized detailed BIM modeling, unique structural analysis methods, and innovative construction techniques.

In other words, it won’t be brought down easily in times of war.

Do these Americans builders realize how the Turkish president refers to mosques and why he’s building it in such a strategic location?

“The minarets are our bayonets; the domes are our helmets. Mosques are our barracks, the believers are soldiers. This holy army guards my religion. Almighty, Our journey is our destiny, the end is martyrdom.”

Useful idiots.

 

Kansas City: Group with HAMAS Ties Training Activists to Engage the American Public

Infiltration and dawah is happening in cities in every state in America. via causingfitna.

Fatima Mohammadi is an Islamist activist and ‎Legal Consultant from Overland Park, Kansas according to LinkedIn.

The vivapalestina-us website (http://www.vivapalestina-us.org) was registered in May 2009 to Fatima Mohammadi.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism has uncovered evidence that the Viva Palestina campaign is more about supporting and legitimizing Hamas than it is about providing aid to the needy. In their speeches and in the delivery of their supplies, Viva Palestina’s most visible leaders call for the elimination of the State of Israel to pave the way for a “one state solution” to the conflict. They treat Hamas leaders as the legitimate representatives of the Palestinian people and provide both material and moral support to the terrorist organization.

Event Details

What: Community activism training for 50 members (includes light breakfast and lunch)

Where: Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City. 8501 E 99th St, Kansas City, MO 64134 (816-763-2267)

11:45-1:00 Communication Tools for Change: Designing your message
This session gives an in-depth look at the importance of language and messaging in reaching other people on this issue. Outreach and educational efforts should center around a fact-based, human rights approach. Learn how to reach beyond the choir, handle people who just want to argue/derail, and respond to pressure.

1:45-2:30 Working with the Media

Combatting media misinformation about Israel-Palestine is one of the most important things Americans must do to change public opinion. Learn how to write press releases, letters to editors and op-eds; set up meetings with Congress people and local leaders; use billboards and newspaper ads effectively; and leverage social media to educate and inspire.

Examples of the above mentioned activist training and media message control can be seen in the following screen captures. Fatima Mohammadi points out she wants “two MUSLIMS” not “two Palestinians” to meet a congressperson on “Palestinian” issues. Yet their Billboard nor their talking points mention Islam, and never in detail.

Three days of dawah.

Read it all and ask yourself why Hamas is spreading in Kansas City (where it planted its seed decades ago).

Who in the Kansas City area – well on its way to Islamization – will counter the Islamic propaganda?

After ISIS Arrests, Brooklyn Borough President Plans Outreach…to Muslims

A day after federal authorities arraigned three young [MUSLIM] men in Brooklyn on charges of plotting to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Borough President Eric Adams announced his office would launch a new effort to help integrate Muslim youth into New York and American society.

Mr. Adams joined with heads of local immigrant groups from ex-Soviet republics in the Central Asia, which is the birthplace of the three men arrested for allegedly seeking to detonate a bomb in Coney Island, assassinate President Barack Obama and hijack a plane and take it to Syria. The Brooklyn leaders warned that many under-30 Muslims—like the three arrested yesterday—feel alienated in the United States, and find camaraderie and community in militant Islamic websites.

“We actively reached out to these communities so we could start a process of identifying their young men, bringing them in cross-communication with other young people throughout the borough,” Mr. Adams said.

The borough president said he intended to expand his Digital Dialogue program, which uses Google Hangout to allow high school kids to take part in citywide conversations, and said he would work with community groups to incorporate potentially disaffected and impressionable Muslim males.

“Many of these young men don’t understand how to be part of the American culture, and someone is not there showing them that process,” he said, suggesting that the Digital Dialogues would be an alternative to becoming involved in extremist online forums. “We want to be pro-active: go into these communities, establish relationships with the communities, identify their young people and have them talk to young people from America, from Brooklyn, so they can understand that the hate that they were hearing online, that the hate is not what America is.”

Mr. Adams, a former NYPD sergeant, said he did not favor reviving Giuliani and Bloomberg era police surveillance programs on Muslim communities. But he called upon local business owners to report suspicious activities to the authorities.

“Many who are seeking to hurt America are using legal businesses to accomplish that task, and businesses must play a role in assuring to identify with the police department, and must maintain open dialogue with the law enforcement community,” he said.

He warned that the Internet poses both a danger and an opportunity in dealing with the terrorist threat.

“It is extremely challenging, because you’re talking lone wolves, and you’re talking individuals who are basically getting their information from the wrong source, and because of the Internet and the ability of getting information globally, it’s a challenge,” he said, though he added that he believed law enforcement was managing the problem well. “But aggressive actions of the NYPD, the Joint Terrorism Task Force, the FBI, they are really keeping their finger on the pulse and identifying those patterns.”

Two of the men arraigned yesterday were current Brooklyn residents, the third was a former Brooklynite living in Florida.


Once again we see how terrorism pays. Taxpayers in New York – possibly nationwide – will now be funding Islamic assimilation when we should be funding deportation. How about checking visas in Brooklyn, visiting the mosques and the money changers?

This will backfire and we’ll be reading about non-Muslims who were radicalized by Muslim youth who are raised to be skilled at dawah while American youth are taught how bad America is.

 

Texas sharia court judge supports amputations for punishment (VIDEO)

We’ve highlighted the sharia courts in Texas for several years, most recently in Islamic Sharia Tribunal (Court) Confirmed in Texas. But ever emboldened by Hussein Obama, they are now speaking publicly about severing hands and death penalties.

In a video uploaded to YouTube last April (posted below and in Arabic), a Muslim who has been featured recently in a Dallas Morning News article in his capacity as a moderate Muslim judge, appears to be anything but moderate. In the video, that judge – Taher el-Badawi – makes it clear who he supports – Muslim Brotherhood extremists and terrorists throughout the Middle East. He even referred to fundamentalist scholars at a prominent Egyptian university as not being fundamentalist enough.

El-Badawi is clearly a Muslim fundamentalist in Dallas who is portraying himself as a moderate. Continue reading

Islamic terror financier ran kiosks at malls in Delaware, Philly, Georgia, Florida

“…among other locations.” via Officials: Ex-Dover Mall kiosk owner financed ISIS plot

A man who last year operated a Dover Mall kiosk that repaired cellphones was the alleged financier of what federal prosecutors say was a terrorist plot to fly two other suspects to Syria to join the Islamic State fighters, The News Journal has learned.

Abror Habibov, 30, who was arraigned Wednesday in Jacksonville, Florida, and held without bail, ran the I Cell Fix kiosk at the mall and also briefly lived in Dover.

“We are aware that Habibov was known to operate or work at a kiosk at the Dover Mall,” Dover Police Cpl. Mark A. Hoffman said.

The indictment said Habibov operates kiosks that sell kitchenware and repair mobile phones in malls in Philadelphia; Chesapeake and Virginia Beach, Virginia; Savannah, Georgia; and Jacksonville, “among other locations.”

At the I Cell Fix kiosk in Chesapeake on Thursday afternoon, an employee told a reporter that he had just learned of Habibov’s arrests.

“It’s crazy,” said the man, who identified himself as Amin, but declined to give his last name.

Talk about crazy. And Kiosks can be ideal for terror financing, expert says

Relaxed background checks, short-term leases and an easy-to-launder cash flow are among the reasons owning a mall kiosk could be ideal for a terrorist living in the United States, an expert on terrorism financing said.

Abror Habibov, the alleged financier of a plot to fly two associates to Syria to join the Islamic State group, operated the I Cell Fix kiosk at the Dover Mall. Habibov was arraigned Wednesday in Florida.

Authorities have not released information about the nature of Habibov’s businesses or his time in Delaware. His public defender did not respond to calls from The News Journal.

Mall kiosks offer relatively anonymity, said Moyara Ruehsen, an associate professor at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey in California. Ruehsen has researched money laundering and terrorism.

“I think kiosks are easy to set up because you don’t have to provide that much information, compared to taking out a small-business loan to start a larger-scale business,” she said.

Brady Flowers of Minneapolis, who has spent 10 years in the kiosk industry, said each mall has different standards to evaluate people who apply. He said malls have adopted more stringent requirements for ownership since the 2008 credit crunch. But Flowers said that a credit check might be the only review a mall may request in addition to verifying a business license and federal tax identification number.

“If I saw a rent sign in a strip mall, I would have to go through a qualification process to have that space,” he said. “The difference with a kiosk is that they really only want to know what you are going to sell.”

Ruehsen said an all-cash business such as a kiosk would be ideal because it would avoid a complicated, easy-to-trace money-laundering process.

“It doesn’t take much money here in the states if you are an independent cell and not getting money from a larger organization,” she said.

This isn’t the first time kiosks have been linked with the funding of terrorism.

In 2002, FBI and INS agents raided more than 65 jewelry stores kiosks operating at Intrigue Jewelers in six states, including one in Philadelphia. That chain was owned by a Florida company suspected of funding terrorist activity and laundering terrorist money.

 More via Terror plot exposes flaws in business permits

Lawmakers with both parties started looking closer Friday at Delaware’s business registration practices after the discovery that accused terrorists set up shop in a Dover Mall kiosk without direct city, county or state permits or approvals.

The state’s top tax officer was unable to find any sign of Abror Habibov’s I Cell Fix in the Division of Revenue’s license database. The agency plans a check of other such sites at Dover Mall, along with a wider reminder to host sites like malls that they need to verify permit compliance when they open doors to vendors.

“As far as we can tell, there is no entity” connected with Habibov on record, Carter said. “We ask that places like the Dover Mall and Christiana Mall make sure that anybody that does business there has an active license.”

The Dover company also was not listed among companies that had secured a required Kent County permit.


Next time you’re at the mall and think about buying fake Rayban sunglasses, a Louie Vuitton handbag, some watered down brand name perfume or a remote control helicopter – ask the kiosk owner a few polite questions.

 

Muslim in USMC found guilty of desertion, gets 2 years confinement

via Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun, the disappearing Marine, found guilty of desertion – CBS News. h/t @NadeenFlores

RALEIGH, North Carolina – A U.S. Marine who vanished a decade ago in Iraq has been sentenced to two years in prison for leaving his post and then fleeing to Lebanon after a brief return to the U.S.

As part of the sentence handed down Monday, Cpl. Wassef Hassoun will have a reduction in rank, loss of pay and a dishonorable discharge. He was given two years and five days’ confinement.

Earlier in the day, the judge at Camp Lejeune, Marine Maj. Nicholas Martz, had found Hassoun guilty of desertion for his disappearances in 2004 and 2005. He was also convicted of losing his service pistol.

Prosecutors argued during trial that Hassoun made preparations to flee his base in Fallujah in 2004 and told others that he planned to leave. They displayed quotes during opening statements attributed to Hassoun: “I’ll leave and go to Lebanon. I’m not kidding.”

They said he was unhappy with how U.S. servicemen treated Iraqis during interrogations and that he was upset that training and a second deployment to Iraq kept him from being with a woman with whom he’d entered an arranged marriage.

Defense attorneys maintain that Hassoun was kidnapped by insurgents in 2004. They argued that the case against the Muslim serviceman began with a “rush to judgment” by Navy investigators after suspicious comrades told investigators about comments Hassoun made about the conflict between his native Lebanon and Israel.

Days after his 2004 disappearance in Iraq, Hassoun appeared blindfolded and with a sword held above his head in an image purportedly taken by insurgents. An extremist group claimed to be holding him captive.

But Hassoun soon turned up unharmed at the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon, saying he’d been kidnapped. Officials were suspicious, and he was returned to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina in 2004 while the military considered charging him.

After his return, Hassoun was allowed to visit family in Utah but disappeared a second time in early 2005. Hassoun traveled to Lebanon but was detained by that country’s authorities after Interpol issued a bulletin related to his deserter status, the defense said. The defense says court proceedings in Lebanon lasted until 2013, and Hassoun turned himself in to U.S. authorities after the government there lifted travel restrictions.
