New York: Muslim college student killed waging jihad for Islamic State

Once again destroying the myth that Muslim terrorists are poor, uneducated souls who are lacking opportunities. This Muslim jihadist was attending college…in pricey Manhattan. The media apparently won’t reveal what college he attended (was he an MSA member?) or his immigration status.

— A 2008 Goshen High School graduate killed fighting for the Islamic State group in Syria made a video trying to clear the name of an Arizona man who was charged with helping him join, prosecutors said.

The 24-year-old student’s November death was revealed in papers filed Monday and Tuesday in Manhattan federal court. The student was identified in court papers as Samy El-Goarany.

The Arizona man, Ahmed Mohammed el Gammal, who’s accused of helping the student travel to Syria and receive military and religious-style training, was arrested last year and has pleaded not guilty. His lawyers said the video is unreliable and “overly prejudicial” and should be precluded from a trial scheduled for December.

Prosecutors say El-Goarany left his parents’ home in Middletown, New York, in January 2015, telling them he was returning to his Manhattan college. Instead, the government said, he flew to Turkey and then Syria.

Reached by phone, El-Goarany’s father said the family didn’t wish to speak. Court papers did not identify El-Goarany’s college.

Prosecutors said an unidentified person contacted a relative in November to say El-Goarany was killed fighting in Syria. The person provided photographs of a handwritten note in which the student said, “If you’re reading this then know that I’ve been killed in battle,” prosecutors said.

The government also said it had found a YouTube video in which El-Goarany, clad in military fatigues, said on Sept. 8, 2015, two weeks after el Gammal’s arrest, that he was in the “Islamic State.”

Prosecutors said El-Goarany claimed in the video in an “unabashed effort to falsely exculpate el Gammal — that no one assisted him in traveling to Syria, including ‘Ahmed Mohammed El Gammal.”‘

Prosecutors argued in the court papers that the video should be admissible at trial to show El-Goarany went to Syria to join the Islamic State group and that he and his co-conspirators took extensive measures to maintain secrecy in the group’s methods for recruiting personnel and helping recruits travel.

El-Goarany’s lawyers said in court papers that the video depicts their client sitting on a mat in a sparsely decorated room. They say he states his name, explains he is a U.S. citizen “currently residing in the Islamic State” and says el Gammal did not assist him in his travels.

The lawyers said the video should not be shown to jurors because it “constitutes inadmissible hearsay.”

“Additionally, the entire video should be precluded as overly prejudicial,” they wrote, noting that El-Goarany is unavailable to testify at el Gammal’s trial and cannot further explain how el Gammal did not facilitate his travel.

The defense lawyers also challenged the admissibility of El-Goarany’s handwritten note, saying claims of his death were “unreliable,” especially since he had written to his brother weeks earlier to say he might have to fall out of contact because he was being monitored.

“It is not beyond the stretch of the imagination that the letter was written so that El-Goarany could ‘disappear,”‘ the lawyers wrote.

According to The Chronicle archives, Samy M. El-Goarany graduated in 2008 with a Regent’s Diploma.

The lawyer makes a good point, he may not be dead and if not, may attempt to come back into the U.S. at any time as a Syrian “refugee.”

New York: Woman Sues Uber After Assault by Muslim Driver


Source: ‘I Was Bleeding Out of the Back of My Head’: Woman Sues Driver, Uber Over Alleged Attack, Lack of Cooperation | NBC New York

A woman visiting from California who was allegedly attacked by her Uber driver is furious that it took more than a month for him to be arrested and she blames Uber’s policies.

Abbey Thomas, who is from Los Angeles, was in New York City on business over the summer. On July 28, she went out with a co-worker near Gramercy Park and ordered an Uber car to take her back to her hotel, six blocks away.

“For whatever reason, he didn’t want to take me and he was getting agitated and upset,” Thomas told the I-Team.

Thomas says the driver was yelling and cursing at her, demanding she leave the car, but she wouldn’t budge. She says he even got out of the car and tried to pull her out. He left her half hanging out of the cab and jumped back into the driver seat, she says.

“He just took right off. Didn’t stop, ran a red light and just left me on the street,” Thomas said. “I rolled out, and I was bleeding out of the back of my head where I hit the ground. I had bruises and lacerations up and down my leg.”

Thomas says the driver also took her phone. And that caused problems when she filed a police report. Without her phone, and no Uber app, Thomas had no confirmed information on her driver. She said she remembered at least part of his name, what he looked like and that he was driving a Toyota sedan.

Thomas claims the NYPD detectives handling her case tried and failed to get the driver’s information.

“The guys at the 13th precinct did everything they could do to support this,” Thomas said. “They told me from day one they would have to get a subpoena from Uber. ‘It’s a long process. We’re not going to be able to get this guy’s information without it.'”

The NYPD confirms there is an issue with Uber not providing information to police without a subpoena, which Thomas claimed led to a delayed arrest of the driver, Abul Hassan. Hassan was arrested in early September, more than a month after the alleged attack, on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident with an injury.

Thomas’ lawyer, Brad Gerstman, has filed a lawsuit against the driver for the alleged attack and against Uber because, according to the lawsuit, the company “refused to cooperate with the police in providing information.”

Hassan declined NBC 4 New York’s request for comment on the matter. He is awaiting arraignment on the charge of leaving the scene of an accident with injury, according to the district attorney’s office.

An Uber spokesperson said the company can’t comment on pending litigation and referred the I-Team to its guidelines for law enforcement which spells out procedure for releasing information on drivers.

The spokesperson also said Hassan no longer works for Uber.

…when a driver is suspended from one car service like Uber, he or she could easily work at another.

NYC: Muslim Lyft Driver Terrifies Passenger, Tells Her to Convert to Islam, Arrange Syrian Marriage

Source: I-Team: Lyft Driver Removed After Taking NYC Fashion Student on Terrifying Ride | NBC New York

Fashion school student Alyssa Pfaus relies on cabs and car services to safely get around New York City but after what she described as a terrifying Lyft ride, the 19-year-old is reconsidering her choice of transportation.

A recent Lyft ride from Union Square to the Upper East Side terrified the young student; she says the driver started getting personal, then took her on the wrong route when she didn’t respond to him.

“He asked if I was Islamic,” Pfaus said, “And then he listed all the reasons why I needed to convert to Islam.”

At first she chose to ignore him, until he flew right past her exit on the FDR and started driving on the RFK bridge over into Queens.

“I asked him where he was going, and he answered me by saying, ‘Don’t worry, I know exactly where I’m taking you,’” Pfaus said.

Pfaus says she pleaded with the driver to turn around and became increasingly frightened as he began circling through a Queens neighborhood with which she was not familiar.

“I felt absolute panic. The conversation turned into how I needed an arranged marriage and his family in Syria could arrange that,” she said.

Pfaus says they passed by a sign that said Manhattan and that’s when she urged him to take the bridge and drive her home. The driver finally complied.

When Pfaus was dropped off, she ran to the 23rd precinct stationhouse to report the driver to police.

She wasn’t able to file a police report because she didn’t know his last name, she said. Nothing came up in the police database based on the driver’s first name.

According to the receipt she received from Lyft, an app-based car service, Pfaus didn’t have the driver’s Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) or license plate number either.

Initially, police did not take a report, but once NBC 4 New York’s I-Team contacted them, the NYPD began an investigation, saying, “Detectives are waiting for a subpoena to identify the driver and to speak to him.”

The TLC, which regulates all cab drivers in New York City says passengers should report questionable drivers directly to it.

“We are the only people who can suspend or revoke a license,” Commissioner Meera Joshi said. ” If an app kicks a driver off, that driver can easily join another platform so they will still interact with passengers.”

TLC rules were recently strengthened to prevent the type of experience Pfaus endured — by requiring receipts to include the vehicle license number, the driver’s for-hire license number and the 311 complaint number.

“With that information we can very easily track down a trip and take action against a driver when necessary,” Joshi said.

Because of a grace period, not all companies are in compliance. A spokesman for Lyft said the company removed Pfaus’ driver from its service and it is working to comply with new TLC requirements.

The I-Team surveyed the biggest car service companies based on fleet size and found only six companies to be compliant with the new TLC rules.

This Syrian Muslim is not the first Muslim Lyft driver to terrify a woman in the U.S.

Coincidence? Men Who Took NYC Bomb From Suitcase Are Egyptian Muslims

But don’t worry, they’re just witnesses according to the NYPD and FBI.

Source: NYC Bomb Investigation: FBI IDs Men With Suitcase, Officials Say – ABC News

The FBI has identified the two men seen on surveillance camera taking a suitcase that had held one of the explosive devices that failed to detonate earlier this month in Manhattan, according to law enforcement officials.

Authorities had previously said the men were not considered suspects in the attempted bombing and appear to have removed the device from the bag on Manhattan’s 27th street in order to lug away the suitcase.

The two men are believed to work for an Egyptian airline and are presumed to have returned to Egypt, officials said. At this point remain witnesses in the case.

Authorities say the men picked up the bag shortly after it was left on 27th street on the evening of Sept. 17 by Ahmad Rahami, an American citizen from Afghanistan. Rahami has been charged with a number of purported crimes related to that bomb, another that exploded on 23rd street the same night and several other devices discovered in New Jersey, most of which failed to detonate. At least 29 people were injured in the 23rd street blast.

NYPD chief of counterterrorism James Waters said last week the men who took the bag were “very, very lucky” after perhaps unknowingly handling the explosive device.

Very lucky? What are the chances?

Of all the people in New York City, two Muslims from Egypt randomly find a suitcase with a bomb in it, remove the bomb and take the suitcase. Then, rather than provide investigators with information, they fled the U.S. immediately.

NYPD Seeks Muslim Woman Caught on Video Taking Photos of Jewish School

Source: NYPD Seeking to Question Muslim Woman Caught On Video Taking Photos From Jewish School

The NYPD Intelligence Division & Counter-Terrorism Bureau are seeking to speak with a woman that was caught on surveillance video taking pictures of a Jewish school in borough park.

The incident took place last week on Thursday afternoon at approximately 2:30 p.m. The woman, dressed like a Muslim, showed up at the Yeshiva Imeri Yosef Spinka school located at 15th avenue and 58th street. She proceeded to take photos and look around all sides of the building as if  to spy and stake out the place.

The school’s surveillance video was handed over to the NYPD.

Investigators from the Intelligence Division are now reviewing the video, NYPD officials told JP.

“If you see something suspicious you need to report it immediately to 911,”  Councilman David Greenfield said upon learning about this incident.

“Better safe than sorry,” he continued,”I’m pleased that the NYPD Intelligence Division is actively investigating this situation.”

“We’re fortunate to have the best police department in the world,” Greenfield added.

In a video posted on her Facebook page on September 21, New York-based Egyptian-American activist Ayat Oraby called the Coptic church “a gang, striving to establish a Coptic mini-state,” and “a full-fledged mafia,” and described Pope Tawadros as “a criminal.” Oraby called upon Muslims to participate in an economic boycott of Copts, saying that: “They must be made to understand that the crescent must be on top of the cross.”

According to her Twitter bio she is a “journalist” in New York. Hence the hashtag in yellow above. Video below.


After continued Muslim terror attacks, NYC launches “I am Muslim” media blitz

Including free classes on Islam. Taxation for Islamization. Submission. Taxpayers are funding the takeover of their own city where thousands of people were killed by Muslim terrorists and where Muslims continue to terrorize and attempt to kill non-Muslims.


Above is a quick rendition of NYC’s Islamic dawah campaign. We encourage reader’s to make their own versions and hijack the #IamMuslimNYC hashtag on Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere.

We can, and will, make more and could make many more if the NYPD released names and photo’s of all the Muslims it arrests. But they don’t always do so, particularly in faked Muslim hate crimes.

Full story below on the full blown Islamic dawah no doubt orchestrated by the terror-linked Muslim Brotherhood organizations that have infiltrated all levels of New York City politics and law enforcement.

New York City is one of the most diverse and welcoming cities in the world. With more than 8.4 million residents, people of every faith, race, and ethnicity live and work side by side. Millions of people adhering to some religion or faith call New York City home, including thousands of Muslims with diverse backgrounds. They, like New Yorkers of every faith, contribute to the unique and rich cultural diversity for which New York City is universally known. They deserve to live and work free from discrimination and harassment.

Ongoing Events and Initiatives

Launching a digital ad campaign today led by the Commission on Human Rights to promote respect and understanding of Muslim communities and underscore anti-discrimination protections under the NYC Human Rights Law. The ads will appear on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with the hashtag #IamMuslimNYC. The ads will direct traffic to, which will list fresources, events, and calls-to-actions in an effort to support and serve Muslim New Yorkers.

Hosting Community Safety and Fair Treatment Forums with the NYPD, the Mayor’s Community Affairs Unit, NYC Commission on Human Rights, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and the Department of Education to discuss public safety concerns on the streets and in our schools, anti-discrimination protections under the law, and information on accessing city services.

• Developing a cultural sensitivity workshop with community leaders and the Islamic Center at NYU called “Understanding Islam” to help City employees and public and private employers across the city better understand the Islamic faith and to dispel common myths. The NYC Commission on Human Rights will launch a pilot workshop in October 2016.

• Increasing public outreach and awareness efforts on religious protections under the NYC Human Rights Law, including issuing a new multilingualfact sheet explaining protections against religious discrimination with a focus on Muslim communities and a new multilingual brochure on religious protections under NYC Human Rights Law with practical examples to identify discrimination in the workplace, housing, and public accommodations.

• Hosted a “Building Inclusive and Progressive Cities” forum with Mayor de Blasio and the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, along with Muslim leaders and community members, to discuss how New York City and other cities can better address Islamophobia and prevent hate crimes and other acts of discrimination.

• Convened Muslim, immigrant, and refugee groups to unite communities facing hate and violence and discuss shared actions the City and communities can take to combat xenophobic rhetoric, including a joint multi-sector action plan to join together and push back.

• Launching a citywide media campaign in late spring 2017 to educate New Yorkers on combatting xenophobia and embracing religious diversity, and create toolkits for government agencies and non-profits to improve cultural competency with faith-based communities.

Commitment of the de Blasio Administration with Muslim and all Faith-Based Communities

• Recognized Eid al Fitr and Eid al Adha as public school holidays for the first time in the 2015-16 school year.

• Hiring a senior advisor specifically focused on working with City agencies to ensure programs and services reach Muslim communities.

The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs develops policy and monitors and coordinates with 75 City agencies to ensure effective translation, interpretation, and “plain language” practices amongst City agencies. At the NYC Commission on Human Rights, 26 languages, including Arabic, Hindi, Bengali, Punjabi, Urdu, and Gujarati are now spoken among law enforcement staff.

• Meeting regularly with Muslim community leaders and making mosque visits to discuss public safety concerns, social services, small business services, mental health, access to universal pre-K, and other issues facing communities.

• Furthering the inclusion of immigrant communities though IDNYC, a government-issued identification card that over 900,000 unique cardholders and connects New Yorkers to libraries, museums, hospitals, and many City services.

• Convening roundtables and workshops with Muslim leaders and advocates to discuss religious protections under the NYC Human Rights Law and how to report acts of discrimination.

• Celebrating Muslim traditions and increasing cultural literacy through public events, such as Eid celebrations in every borough and iftars throughout the city, including the largest public iftar in City history, “Iftar in the City,” attended by hundreds of New Yorkers.

There are human rights laws specifically for the protection of Muslims? Is New York now governed by sharia law? The so-called Human Rights Commission sounds more like a sharia court. More analysis to follow.

New Yorker’s should be outraged that the city is not only aggressively promoting Islam and protecting those who will continue to attack them, but using their tax dollars to do so.

Clearly, 9/11 was a great victory for Muslims and they will continue to takeover New York City and will be forced to submit to Islam.

It should also be noted that Jews are almost 10 times more often the victim of a hate crime, often at the hands of Muslims, than Muslims. And, many supposed anti-Muslim hate crimes are later found to be fake – perpetrated by Muslims themselves. So why the Muslim indoctrination by deBlasio and the city of New York?
