Canada: Two Muslims who plotted to derail NYC-Montreal train guilty on terror charges

Nary a day goes by without another arrest or conviction of Muslims involved in trying to kill non-Muslims. via Via Rail plot trial: Raed Jaser, Chiheb Esseghaier found guilty on several terror charges – Toronto – CBC News.

Raed Jaser and Chiheb Esseghaier, two men accused of plotting to derail a Via passenger train travelling between Canada and the U.S., have been found guilty of a series of terror-related charges.

Esseghaier was found guilty of all charges against him while Jaser was convicted on all but one charge. After 10 days of deliberation, the jury said it was “irrevocably deadlocked” on the charge against Jaser of “conspiring to interfere with transportation facilities for the benefit of a terrorist group.”

But Judge Michael Code told jurors he would accept their unanimous decision on the other charges.

Among other charges, both men were found guilty of conspiring to commit murder for the benefit of, at the direction of, or in association with a terrorist group.

Jaser’s lawyer had argued that his client was only pretending to be interested in the plan as part of an elaborate scheme to extract money from Esseghaier and the undercover officer.

Both men could face maximum punishment of life in prison.

The lead prosecutor Croft Michaelson said it was an overwhelming case in terms of evidence against the two men. But he said it was also a difficult and legally complex case, which is why it took the jurors 10 days to come to their verdicts.

Asked about the accused, Michaelson said he would describe them as “real serious public dangers.”

The court heard conversations in which Jaser and Esseghaier discussed their ideologies, the alleged plot to derail a Via Rail train travelling between New York and Toronto and other ideas for potential attacks, including Jaser’s alleged “sniper plot” idea, which would have been in retaliation for Canadian military actions in Muslim countries.

Jurors were also shown aerial surveillance of the two accused and the undercover officer scouting a railway bridge in September 2012 in broad daylight as several trains passed by only metres away.

Their presence on the bridge drew attention, and the men were stopped after they had returned to their vehicle by uniformed Toronto police officers who were unaware the men were under surveillance. The FBI agent told officers they were sightseeing and the men were given a warning.

Jaser, a Canadian permanent resident of Palestinian descent, pleaded not guilty. He did not testify in his own defence.

Esseghaier, a Tunisian national who was pursuing a PhD in Montreal when he and Jaser were arrested in April 2013, chose not to participate in his trial, because he wants to be judged by the rules of the Qur’an.

 

New York: School’s Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic infuriates American students

Death by dhimmitude. via ‘One nation under Allah?’ School’s Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic infuriates small town – BizPac Review.

Students were offended and authorities are taking plenty of heat at a New York state high school after the Pledge of Allegiance was recited in Arabic Wednesday in celebration of National Foreign Language week.

Instead of being greeted with respect, as the Pledge usually is, Wednesday morning’s rendition was greeted “by catcalls and angry denunciations,” according to the Times Record-Herald online.

Andrew Zink, the senior class president, normally gives the morning announcements, but was asked, instead, to allow someone else to deliver an Arabic version of the Pledge.

“I knew exactly what would happen,” he told the paper in a telephone interview.

Zink later tweeted:

And this tiny New York town became the center of controversy:

Pine Bush High School administrators issued an online apology Thursday, saying their “intention was to promote the fact that those who speak a language other than English still pledge to salute this great country.”

And their first thought was Arabic?

“We sincerely apologize to any students, staff or community members who found this activity offensive,” the statement continued. “In our school District the Pledge of Allegiance will only be recited in English as recommended by the Commissioner of Education.”

Pine Bush administrators had it all wrong.

The whole concept of the United States being a “melting pot” is that people from different countries come together, assimilate and celebrate that which binds us all — being an American.

Highlighting our differences — whether by race, religion or language — only divides us as a nation.


Because, of course, all “middle Easterners” (read Muslims) speak Arabic.

New York: (Yet another) Muslim convicted in al Qaeda jihad plot

Still not clear why he had to be imported to NY, tried in NY, and his presumed decades long sentence funded by American taxpayers. via Abid Naseer re-convicted after no court stenographer present – NY Daily News.

Al Qaeda terrorist Abid Naseer has been convicted a second time in Brooklyn Federal Court — just to make sure it sticks.

Two days after it was discovered that no stenographer was present when Naseer’s verdict was taken, the jury forewoman returned to the courtroom Friday to confirm the terrorist thug was indeed found guilty of all three counts.

Federal Judge Raymond Dearie apologized to prosecutors and Naseer, who was hauled into court for the do-over.

“Due to my inadvertence, we took the verdict without the reporter,” Dearie said. “We have a need to comply with the rule and create a record.”

Dearie recalled that shortly after the lunch break Wednesday there was a note from the jurors stating they had reached a verdict. A verdict sheet signed by the forewoman detailed that Naseer was guilty of plotting to blow up a shopping mall in Manchester, England.

“Will you confirm what I said that the jury did return a guilty verdict on all three counts?” Dearie asked.

“Yes, it is,” replied the forewoman, known only as Juror No. 9 because the panel was anonymous for safety reasons.

Naseer, 28, was a member of an Al Qaeda cell dispatched to Europe to kill scores of people in the United Kingdom. Prosecutors linked him to another Al Qaeda cell in which three Queens men trained at the same terror camp in Pakistan as Naseer and planned to blow themselves up in New York City subway cars.

The goons were all arrested before they could commit their evil acts.

There wasn’t a peep out of Naseer, who acted as his own lawyer, about the verdict snafu.

But he did inform the judge that he was giving up lawyering and asked that his stand-by counsel James Neuman be appointed to handle his appeal.

The judge granted the request along with a dollop of praise for Neuman’s legal assistance. “It’s a pleasure to observe a professional work under strenuous circumstances,” Dearie said, without commenting on Naseer’s amateur legal efforts.

More via CNN:

The Manchester plot was allegedly part of a three-pronged plan that included attacks on the New York City subway system and on a newsroom in Copenhagen. None were carried out. The New York plot allegedly originated with Najibullah Zazi, who is believed to have corresponded with the same al Qaeda contact as Naseer. Zazi pleaded guilty to terrorism charges and was the first witness in Naseer’s trial. Naseer, a Pakistani national, was in the United Kingdom on a student visa at the time of his arrest. Among the evidence presented, prosecutors pointed out that Naseer had dropped out of classes after only a week. Naseer had no intention of completing his studies because “that was never the plan,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Zainab Ahmad argued, saying that Naseer applied for a student visa as a means of entering the country to carry out the attack.

NYPD steps up patrols after ‘suspicious’ Middle Eastern men attempt to enter multiple synagogues in Brooklyn

Surveillance from March 7th – 1801 Ocean Parkway:

Here’s the story via NYPD steps up patrols after two ‘suspicious’ men attempt to enter multiple synagogues in Brooklyn | New York’s PIX11 / WPIX-TV. h/t BNI

BROOKLYN (PIX11) –Police have ramped up security in a Brooklyn neighborhood where two unidentified men were seen taking pictures and trying to gain entrance to two synagogues.

Surveillance video shows two men walking up to the front of Congregation Bet Yaakob at 1801 Ocean Parkway in Midwood around 4:15 p.m. yesterday. One man appeared to begin to take a picture or videotape the other man in front of the synagogue when a private security guard stopped them. They had a brief discussion and then the two unknown men left.

Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn), who represents the district where the synagogues are located, said about an hour later, the same men showed up at Congregation Beth Torah at 1061 Ocean Parkway, trying to gain access.

“One of them sat in the car and one of them got out, and the security guard confronted him,” said Hikind, who is working closely with the NYPD.

Police would like to talk to the men to find out why they were at the synagogues trying to take pictures.

“At one location, they actually told a security guard they’d like to see a prayer. If anybody buys that I’ll sell them the Brooklyn Bridge,” said Hikind. “We just want to get to the bottom of it. Who are they, what’s their background, what are they involved in and what were they doing at these different synagogues.”

“Was something amok? Was something awry? We just don’t know yet,” Sen. Chuck Schumer said, when asked by reporters about the incidents. “But we do know one thing—in an era of lone wolf terrorists, you can’t be too careful.”

Police said a blue sedan was seen at the second synagogue the men were at. But they would not confirm a published report that the car had expired Delaware license plates.

Surveillance video, including video from the many cameras Hikind had installed in Midwood and Borough Park, are being reviewed by the NYPD.

Brooklyn: Muslim who refused to ring up pork suing Costco

via Former employee suing Costco for religious discrimination, happened at Sunset Park location | 7online.com. h/t BNI whose piece is titled: NEVER HIRE A MUSLIM Reason #134

(WABC) — A man is suing Costco for religious discrimination.

He tells Eyewitness News exclusively that when he refused to work with pork, the major retailer sent him outside to gather carts.

“Just because you have a different belief, that doesn’t give anybody the right to treat you different,” said Jean Camara, suing Costco.

That’s why Jean Camara says he’s doing what he’s doing, suing Costco for religious employment discrimination.

The devout Muslim says he was working as a cashier’s assistant at the Costco in Sunset Park Brooklyn in September of 2012 when pork came across the conveyor belt.

It’s against his religious beliefs to touch either pork or alcohol.

Actually, the devout Muslim is either a) ignorant of his so-called religion b) lying or c) both. So says an imam:

Local Imams told The Arab American News that Muslims are allowed to scan and sell pork products if they work for an establishment that requires them to do so.

Camara says after telling his managers this, they transferred him outside collecting the shopping carts.

Camara says they never told him why he was reassigned.

Is being told why you’re reassigned some sort of employment law? He didn’t want to do his job that included ringing up pork-buying infidels.

“I think that as the case progresses in the trial we are in now, I think the facts are going to come out and they’re going to speak for themselves,” said Chauncey Henry, Camara’s attorney.

Camara says he asked his managers if he could work in the electronics department, but his requests were repeatedly denied.

He ended up filing a human rights complaint against the company.

16 days later, he was fired for insubordinate conduct.

“We all share different beliefs so we all should be treated equally no matter what belief we have,” Camara said.

“It’s not OK to discriminate against someone for their religion. It isn’t OK. It isn’t OK to treat them differently others because of what they believe in. I think that everyone is entitled to the same treatment. I think that’s what this case is about,” Henry said.

It’s not ok to falsely accuse employers of discrimination either. This frivolous lawsuit should be thrown out and the devout Muslim should be made to pay all Costco’s expenses and the court costs.

New Yorkistan: Deblasio closing schools for Muslim holidays

Red Bill: aka Warren Wilhelm Jr.

 

via NYC schools add two Muslim holidays – New York News.

The New York City school closing calendar will add two holidays to celebrate Muslim events.

Mayor Bill de Blasio confirmed via Twitter that the largest school district in the country will add Eid al-Adha and al-Fitr to the school holiday schedule.

The mayor said it “respects the diversity of our city.”

“We’re here today to make good on a promise to our Muslim brothers and sisters that a holiday of supreme importance to the Muslim community will be recognized in our school calendar so that children can honor the holiday without missing school, so that families can be together on the holiday, so that our city respects and embraces this important and growing community,” de Blasio said at an event Wednesday. “We’re making good on a promise, and it’s time for this promise to be kept.”

In the coming 2015-2016 school year, schools will close on September 24 for Eid al-Adha. The event, also called the Feast of the Sacrifice, celebrates Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael.

Even the holiest day for Muslims celebrates slaughter. Even though Islam didn’t exist when the Biblical sacrifice of Isaac took place, and Muslims can’t even agree on who was sacrificed on this supposed holy day.

Further dawah deleted.

Eid al-Fitr, which falls over the summer, will be designated a holiday for those attending summer school.

That event, also called Feast of Breaking the Fast, is also considered an important religious holiday for Muslims. It marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña said each school year will be adjusted to take into account when all recognized holidays fall to make sure the mandated minimum of 180 days of classroom time is met. She said the schedule always builds in a few extra days in anticipation of snow days.

NYC schools will be closed to celebrate Islam on 9/11 in future years when the dates coincide.
