NYPD Commissioner Worshipping Allah in Queens Mosque

…current New York City Police Commissioner, William Bratton with all members of the NYPD at the Jamaica Muslim Center are seen worshipping Allah:

On its Facebook the Jamaican Muslim Center announced the visit.

It seems that Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio are two butt-cheeks in one underwear. Like Mayor Blasio, the spiritual harlotry is part of Bratton’s efforts to add more Muslims to the NYPD Police Force, so he sees it fit to pray to Allah with Muslims. In June, Reuters reported:

Even with minorities nearly outnumbering whites among New York City police officers, the department is struggling to hire enough blacks and Muslims to reflect changing city demographics, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said in an interview on Monday.

Adding “Muslims” to the NYPD police force is “to reflect changing city demographics”. In other words, Islam is part of America. Bratton believes that Islam is a great religion and was hijacked by a few crazies. In May he stated:

“This crazy hijacking of the Muslim religion by these fanatics, twisting it into an ideology that’s all about hate and murder and killing.”


Read it all. Then check out some of the Twitter comments left @NYPDNews

Sharia law has no place in a civilized society! Moslems don’t respect women, they’re property!

Aug 19Take that totalitarian theocracy back to the ME. Stop the destruction of democracy! Evil.

As we’ve noted before, the NYPD was infiltrated and shaken down by terror-linked CAIR.

New York: Muslim gets 16 years in plea deal after supporting jihadists

The tiny minority of Muslim terrorists gets bigger by the day (if not hour).

But he could walk free. via NY man gets 16-year sentence for trying to support jihadists.

For the second time, an Albanian man living in New York was been sentenced to prison after admitting he tried to support terrorists in Pakistan.

Agron Hasbajrami, 31, was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn to 16 years in prison under a plea deal that allows for his guilty plea to be vacated if a federal appeals court decides to suppress evidence from warrantless surveillance used in a National Security Agency’s secret surveillance program.

Hasbajrami also admitted sending more than $1,000 in wire transfers to support terrorist activities in Pakistan and Afghanistan, prosecutors said in a press release Thursday. They said he exchanged emails with someone in Pakistan who identified himself as a member of an insurgency group that murdered American soldiers.

In one email, Hasbajrami “stated that he wished to travel overseas, using jihadist rhetoric to describe his desire to die as a martyr,” prosecutors say.

Hasbajrami was arrested in September 2011 at John F. Kennedy International Airport after buying a one-way airline ticket to travel to Turkey. He pleaded guilty in 2012 and was sentenced to 15 years in prison for trying to travel to Pakistan the previous year to join a radical jihadist insurgent group.

While in prison, he was notified by the federal government that some evidence against him had been gathered from the surveillance program. He withdrew his plea and asked a judge to have the evidence suppressed, arguing that it was collected without a warrant.

Federal Judge John Gleeson denied his request, and Hasbajrami pleaded guilty again in June on the condition that his plea would be vacated if the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the judge’s decision.

“Mr. Hasbajrami will now have the opportunity to advance legal issues that are not only important to him, but to every American concerned about the erosion of our constitutional rights,” his attorney, Steve Zissou, said Thursday and suggested that the appeal could go beyond the 2nd Circuit. “We look forward to having these issues decided by the Supreme Court.”

But the prosecution defended the surveillance program.

“This case, like many others before it, has shown that the application of lawful surveillance can allow the United States government to detect and neutralize a terrorist in the United States,” said Kelly Currie, acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.

 

Syracuse: Muslims cut down, paint over 10,000 crosses to convert church to mosque

holy-trinity-crosses

ISIS destroys Christian symbols in the Middle East. Boko Haram attacks churches and churchgoers in Africa. In the west, the process is more refined…for now. via From church to mosque: Syracuse Islamic group cuts crosses, tries to connect to neighborhood | syracuse.com.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Two gray church spires grow out of a bumpy plain of city rooftops along Park Street. The skyline is the same as it has been for the better part of a century until you look closer at Holy Trinity Church: There are slim copper crescents where, for 100 years, there had been crosses.

The six crosses were removed and replaced at the end of June. Four of them were massive: 600 pounds of concrete each, and more than 4 feet tall. The step was the last, and most visible, in the building’s change from church to mosque.

The transformation has been a series of careful choices aimed at balancing the forces of two religions in a neighborhood that is shifting. The North Side, once full of Italian and German immigrants, is increasingly home to new Americans who are refugees from countries where Islam is the dominant religion.

Even as the crosses were cut from the church spires on the outside, and 10,000 crosses were painted over on the inside, the new owners of 501 Park St. tried to leave what they could, and reuse what they couldn’t.

The wood from the pews has been repurposed to fix the floor, which is where Muslims sit to pray. Painters worked to make the minbar, the pulpit where the imam stands, blend in with the stonework. The name of the mosque is Masjid Isa Ibn Maryam, which translates to Mosque of Jesus Son of Mary.

Is this the history we want to leave for future generations? It will be and it will get much worse if Muslim immigration is not halted and/or reversed very soon. More below the fold. Continue reading

New York: Muslim Al-Qaida Terrorist in Brooklyn Gets 22 Years in Prison

The only question is – why did Eric Holder bring yet another Muslim terrorist into the United States? via Al-Qaida Terrorist in Brooklyn Gets 22 Years in Prison | NBC New York.

A Nigerian terrorist who joined with al-Qaida operatives in Yemen was sentenced to 22 years in prison by a federal judge in Brooklyn Wednesday.

Lawal Olaniyi Babafemi posed for pictures in al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula’s (AQAP) “Inspire” magazine and called for lone wolf attacks inside the U.S.

Babafemi, 35, also traveled to Yemen from Nigeria to get terror training. Federal prosecutors said he practiced shooting with AK-47’s and even wrote rap lyrics hoping to recruit Westerners to commit terror bombings.

“Babafemi travelled to Yemen to receive weapons training and to learn how to contribute to AQAP’s English-language media operation,” said Assistant Attorney General John Carlin.

Investigators said Babafemi joined AQAP after the failed underwear bomb plot in which an AQAP operative targeted a Delta flight heading to Detroit. The FBI said Babafemi took $9,000 in cash from cleric Anwar al-Awlaki to try to recruit other Nigerians to carry out attacks. Al-Awlaki was later killed in a U.S. drone strike.

Babafemi was arrested and flown to New York for trial.

He pleaded guilty in April 2014.


For up to the next 22 years, U.S. taxpayers will fund his halal meals and prayer time, then he will be released among the U.S. public to wage jihad here in the States. That’s a long time to recruit inmates and plot his next attack.

Interestingly, from the DOJ website, where they still refuse to name al Qaeda as Muslim terrorists:

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Zainab Ahmad and Hilary Jager of the Eastern District of New York, with assistance from Trial Attorney Annamartine Salick of the Justice Department’s Counterterrorism Section.


Somewhere along the way, someone appointed a Muslim woman to be assistant U.S. attorney. There’s no bio readily available of Ahmad but it appears she rose out of New York’s Eastern District of New York, Criminal Division. Here’s a sketch of her in action during a previous Muslim terror trial.

NY: St. Johnsville sporting goods store won’t sell guns to Muslims after Tenn. jihad attack

When the government fails to do one of the few things enumerated in the Constitution, the people feel the need to take things into their own hands. via St.Johnsville sporting goods store says they will not sell guns to Muslims : News : CNYcentral.com. h/t Iron Burka

ST. JOHNSVILLE — A sporting goods store in St. Johnsville announced via a Facebook post, its intention to refuse gun sales to all Muslims.

JJ’s Sporting Goods sent out a Facebook status update stating: “JJ’s has made a corporate decision. After lengthy meetings with the board of directors, and considering the recent attack of the recruiting station and the killing of 5 service men by a radical Muslim, and since I cannot tell a radical Muslim from the 6 non radical Muslims left in the world, we at JJ’s have decided not to sell any guns to Muslims.”

According to WKTV, the owner John Swartz, acknowledged that it may not always be possible to tell who is Muslim, and he knows that it may not even be legal, but he believes he has to have the policy for the sake of his conscience.

 Then, the same government not only does nothing about the terrorists it imports into the country but starts harassing legal, law-abiding citizens.

One News Now asked two lawyers for their opinion:

The head of a gun-rights organization, and an attorney formerly with the U.S. Justice Department, have varying opinions about a “Muslim-free” gun store.

“These are private stores and they’re free to do what they wish,” says Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America. “And if they don’t want to sell to the enemy, then good for them.”

But the gun store can’t legally discriminate against Muslims based on the 1964 Civil Rights Act, says J. Christian Adams, who worked for the Civil Rights division at the Justice Department.

The federal law bans discrimination based on religion in public accommodation.

“And the retail store is considered a public accommodation,” Adams explains, “so it’s very difficult to see how CAIR can’t win this case.”

The attorney calls CAIR a “despicable bullying organization” but in this case, he says, CAIR is right.

Pratt, meanwhile suggests that other gun stores should follow the Florida one

“Why would we want to sell guns to people who, when they go to hear a sermon on Friday, are told to go shoot everybody else?” he asks.

Andy Hallinan, the owner of Florida Gun Supply, announced his new “policy” July 17 after the shootings in Chattanooga, Tenn.

 

 

New York: Islamic State recruiter arrested, associate of Lackawanna 6 terrorists; threatened to behead daughter

New jingle: Like a good Muslim, jihad is there. Like it?

via Accused ISIS recruiter had threatened to behead daughter, sources say – The Buffalo News.

FBI agents arrested a Lackawanna man they say was trying to recruit local people for ISIS and who was about to leave the country.

Arafat Nagi, 44, was preparing to leave Lackawanna, and agents believed he was headed to the Middle East to fight with ISIS, prompting agents to take him into custody, according to a source.

U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. at a news conference Wednesday said Nagi has on two separate occasions traveled from Lackawanna to Turkey to try to join the terrorist organization, which also is known as ISIL. [ISIS]

Nagi had bought body armor, boots, Islamic headband, a face mask, night vision goggles and burn kit, federal authorities said.

He was known to local as he was involved in a domestic incident in 2013, according to law enforcement sources, who said he threatened to behead his daughter with a knife.

Law enforcement officials also said Wednesday that Nagi was a friend and associate of several members of the Lackawanna Six.

Nagi was arraigned Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Hugh B. Scott, who ordered him held without bail, pending a felony hearing Friday morning.

Beginning in August 2012 and up to the present, Nagi is accused of attempting to “provide material and resources” to a designated terrorist organization, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also called ISIS.

Scott told Nagi he faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, if convicted.

Nagi, who was born in Buffalo, said he has not worked since 2009, when he was injured. He told the judge he previously worked delivering medication to pharmacies for Prestige Delivery Systems, but was fired. He also described himself as disabled, though he never has filed for disability benefits. Nagi said he relies on family members to pay his bills.

Nagi said he is divorced and the father of a son, 23, and daughter, 21.

Assistant US Attorney Joseph Trippi said he moved for continued detention of Nagi because he is “a risk of flight and danger to the community.”

Scott assigned attorney Jeremy Schwartz to defend Nagi.

“It’s very early in the case to make any comments about the evidence or charges,” Schwartz told reporters outside the courtroom.

Federal officials said Nagi had been on their radar “for about a year.”

“The FBI had been watching him for some time and arrested him because he was planning to take action today, preparing to leave and go fight,” a source familiar with the investigation said.

Nagi, formerly of Detroit, had been interviewed by agents and, when questioned, was vague about a 10-day period that remains unaccounted for, a source said.

Agents believe that Nagi attempted to recruit local people for the terrorist organization, according to a source with knowledge of the arrest.

When the man tried to recruit people in Lackawanna, his efforts were spurned, according to another source familiar with the arrest.

This isn’t the first time terrorism has touched Lackawanna. One year and one day after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, eight Lackawanna men were accused of visiting an al Qaida training camp in Afghanistan.


Wow. Bad reporting or intentionally bad reporting? Were they found guilty? What happened to them?

Another article clarifies: Nagi was friend of some Lackawanna Six members, police sources say

The men all went to prison after taking guilty pleas in Buffalo’s federal court and admitting that they had trained with al-Queda and met Osama bin Laden, the man behind the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America.

Nagi was a “friend and supporter” of the Lackawanna Six, one of the sources told the Buffalo News today.


So the Lackawanna Six all went to prison. That is, until the U. S. gave half of the Lackawanna Six new identities. Witness protecton. No one knows where they are today.


Update from Daniel Greenfield:

The last time Lackawanna made headlines it was because of the Lackawanna Six, a sleeper cell of six Yemeni Muslims aiding Al Qaeda. Arafat Nagi also appears to be Yemeni.

There are a whole bunch of Yemeni Muslims living in Lackawanna, New York, because this country’s government has an obsessive death wish.

More than 1,100 people of Yemeni descent live in Lackawanna. Their culture and their faith set them apart from others in the city – and co-existence has had its rough edges.

This is a piece of ethnic America where the Arabic-speaking Al-Jazeera television station is beamed in from Qatar through satellite dishes to Yemenite-American homes; where young children answer “Salaam” when the cell phone rings, while older children travel to the Middle East to meet their future husband or wife; where soccer moms don’t seem to exist, and where girls don’t get to play soccer – or, as some would say, football.

That was 13 years ago. Assume there are a lot more than that now in a population of less than 20,000.

A popular stretch of Ridge Road now has Yemini and American flags waving. Some residents in the community don’t welcome it, but the Mayor of Lackawanna said he’s not backing down.

“Some people don’t like the fact that they’re flying side by side with our flag. Then my response was well you didn’t call anybody or complain when the Polish flags were flying side by side with the American flags,” said Mayor Geoff Szymanski, (D).

Szymansky said the Yeminite community is the fastest growing community in Lackawanna.

Except that the red in the Yemeni flag stands for the “blood of martyrs” and Yemen is currently divided between ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran’s Shiite Houthi terrorists. That’s a little different than the Poles.

Also the Poles don’t seem to be joining ISIS as much.

Fed Court: NYC MTA Anti-Jihad Ad Ban Violated 1st Amendment Rights, Must Pay

Two-time losers. via American Freedom Law Center.

On Thursday of last week (7/16), the federal court hearing the case against the New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) for illegally refusing to display an anti-jihad advertisement granted the plaintiffs, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and their non-profit organization, American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), partial summary judgment and ordered the MTA to pay nominal damages. The court’s finding of liability and award of damages also opens the door for Geller and her co-plaintiffs to recover their legal fees and costs from the City’s transit authority. The controversial anti-jihad ad, referred to in the case as the “Hamas Killing Jews” advertisement, is displayed below.

Judge John G. Koeltl, presiding in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York in downtown Manhattan, had earlier ruled on April 20 that the MTA’s refusal to run the ad out of fear that Muslims in New York might understand the ad to be advocating violence and would therefore rise up to murder Jews as Islamic worship, was unconstitutional.  In fact, Judge Koetl ruled that there was no evidence of any threat of violence.  Based on these findings, Judge Koeltl ordered the MTA to display the ad immediately, even before the court’s final judgment.

The court did, however, stay (i.e., postponed) the enforcement of its order for 30 days to give the MTA time to appeal or to work out the logistics of running the ad.  The MTA did neither.  Instead, it convened a public board meeting at which MTA board member Charles Moerdler ranted incoherently about hate speech and Geller’s newly proposed ads designed to expose wealthy Jews who support the BDS (boycott, divestiture, and sanction) movement against Israel.

At the conclusion of the meeting, the board voted to change the MTA ad policy by excluding all speech that, according to MTA officials, addressed “disputed” causes and issues.  On the heels of that decision, the MTA filed a motion to “dissolve” the court’s previous order requiring it to run the Hamas Killing Jews ad on the grounds that the MTA was no longer applying the “incitement” provision, but rather a “no political message” provision.  Judge Koeltl accepted the MTA’s argument and rescinded his earlier order requiring the MTA to run the ad.

The American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), lawyers for Geller and her co-plaintiffs, immediately appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Judge Koeltl’s decision to dissolve the earlier order requiring the MTA to run the Hamas Killing Jews ad.  Just last Friday, the Second Circuit granted AFLC’s motion to expedite the appeal.

Not waiting for the appeal on the injunction issue to wind its way through the appellate process, AFLC also immediately asked the district court to grant its clients judgment against the MTA for its initial decision to refuse to display the ad on the grounds of incitement—i.e., that it would spur violence, a claim the court flatly rejected.  Initially, the MTA opposed AFLC’s request, claiming that it was premature.  However, at the hearing on the matter, the MTA capitulated and agreed to a court finding that the MTA was liable for violating Geller’s, Spencer’s, and AFDI’s First Amendment right to free speech and further agreed to pay nominal damages.

An award for even nominal damages allows AFLC to seek reimbursement of its legal fees as the “prevailing party,” which will likely be in excess of $100,000.

David Yerushalmi, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, explained,

“The MTA has long been a serial violator of the First Amendment—at least when it involves pro-Israel, anti-jihad speech.  The MTA will pay for this conduct just as it has in the past.  Moreover, we fully intend to win the appeal and force the MTA to actually run the Hamas Killing Jews ad.  The MTA and its board should not be permitted to play musical chairs with its ad policy just because they don’t like Ms. Geller’s viewpoint.”

Robert Muise, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, added,

“It is remarkable the lengths that government officials will go to try and silence Ms. Geller’s anti-jihad message.  But I can assure you that we are more determined to defend the First Amendment against such politically-correct censorship.”

AFLC has now won two federal lawsuits against the MTA, one against the Washington, D.C. transit authority, and one against the Philadelphia transit authority on behalf of its clients, Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, and AFDI.  Cases are still pending in Detroit, Boston, and Seattle, with a new case recently filed in Washington D.C.
