‘Many Feisal Shahzads are residing inside America…yearning to fulfill duty of jihad’

In the latest supposed al Qaeda propaganda…via Al-Qaeda Calls for Car Bomb Attacks on American Cities, Targets Abroad.

The latest issue of Al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine contains an article about using car bombs in U.S. cities as well as abroad during election seasons, both presidential and congressional, as well as on Christmas and New Years Eve.

The cities and areas listed in the piece include Washington, D.C., New York, Northern Virginia, Chicago, and Los Angeles.

Quote from Inspire:

Many Feisal Shahzads are residing inside America, and all they need is the knowledge of how to make car bombs. They are all yearning to fulfill their duty of Jihad.

inspire-2014

Parts of the magazine come across as written by over educated analysts sitting in office buildings somewhere.

One article mentions a Jose Mante (Muslim name: “Khosleah Mantieh”) who was supposedly arrested by the FBI in NY for plotting to bomb three military targets. Web searches for either name show no results. Any sleuths out who can run those names?

Newly Formed Muslim (Brotherhood) Coalition Seeks Greater Clout in U.S. Elections

This is essentially the same terror-linked Muslim Coalition That Threatened Suspending Relations with FBI in 2008. This follows the formation of a Muslim caucus on Capitol Hill last week.

via Newly Formed Muslim Coalition Seeks Greater Clout in U.S. Elections | CNS News.

Ten U.S. Islamic organizations have formed a new umbrella group to serve as a “representative voice” for American Muslims, and one of their first tasks will be to carry out a census of the community.

Other focus areas for the new U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO), according to speakers at the body’s launch in Washington on Wednesday, include enhancing Muslim political engagement and participation in forthcoming elections, civil rights issues, combating “Islamophobia” and having an impact on U.S. foreign and domestic policy.

Participating organizations include high-profile groups that have been dogged by controversy, such as the Muslim American Society (MAS), founded by Muslim Brotherhood members, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which was named by the Justice Department in 2007 as “unindicted co-conspirators” in its case against the Holy Land Foundation in Texas, subsequently found guilty of raising money for Hamas.

Not to mention ICNA, whose NY head was recently found guilty of war crimes and sentenced to death.

“The new national council’s first priority will be to build on Muslim citizenship rights by conducting a census of American Muslims to create a database that will be used to enhance civic and political participation in upcoming elections,” USCMO said in a statement.

CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad, a participant at the launch, said that Muslim organizations in 2011 had come up with a “guesstimate” of seven to eight million Muslims in the United States.

“Opponents of the Muslim community shot down the number for political reasons, to two-and-a-half, two million, and sometimes people even said half a million,” he said.

The aim of the census project would be to determine a clear idea of the number and distribution of American Muslims, by 2016.

Odd this CAIR-led coalition wants to conduct a census now when CAIR went to great lengths to shut down an LAPD census project. How about a mosque census?

“Muslim voters can be swing voters in key elections, especially in 2016, and we are aiming at that election to bring a more visible participation from the Muslim community,” Awad said.

Although a woman emceed the event, no women were visible among the leaders of the organizations at the launch. USCMO Secretary-General Oussama Jammal said the new body’s stated priorities include “empowering women by developing and supporting their leadership skills, seeking appointment of Muslim women to leadership positions, and also involving women at all levels of our community organizations and expressions.”

The founding members of the new umbrella group are The Mosque Cares, Muslim American Society, American Muslims for Palestine, Council on American-Islamic Relations, Islamic Circle of North America, Muslim Legal Fund of America, Muslim Alliance in North America, Muslim Ummah of North America, American Muslim Alliance and the Mosque Foundation of Chicago.


The Muslim Brotherhood’s best and brightest. The speakers describe almost exactly what is laid out by the Muslim Brotherhood in An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America

  • Enablement of Islam in North America, meaning: establishing an effective and stable Islamic Movement led by the Muslim Brotherhood which adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally, and which works to expand the observant Muslim base, aims at unifying and directing Muslims’ efforts, presents Islam as a civilization alternative, and supports the global Islamic state, wherever it is.
  • The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Proecess” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal.

Who is CAIR and Where Does Its Money Come From?

via Who is CAIR and Where Does Its Money Come From? h/t PA Pundits

In a 2003 Senate Sub-Committee hearing on radical Islam, Senator Charles Schumer stated, “To make matters worse, the prominent members of the Council’s (CAIR’s) current leadership who you Mr. Chairman invited to the hearings today – they declined to testify – also have intimate connections with Hamas.”

In June 2009, on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Frank Wolf (VA) gave a lengthy speech in which he laid out a great deal of the evidence against CAIR and its ties to Hamas. The transcript of this speech can be found at http://wolf.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/wolf-gives-major-floor-speech-on-fbis-cooperation-with-cair

In a letter dated April 28, 2009 from the FBI’s Assistant Director, Office of Congressional Affairs, to U.S. Senator John Kyl (AZ), the FBI leader details why the FBI cut off all formal ties to CAIR and identifies it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial because of its relationship with Hamas.

In a letter dated February 12, 2010 to U.S. Congresswoman Sue Myrick (NC) from Assistant U.S. Attorney General Ronald Weich, Mr. Weich wrote “Enclosed (is)…evidence that was introduced in that trial (US v HLF) which demonstrated the relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders, and the Palestine Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestine Committee and Hamas.”

For those of you who forgot Junior High School math, please allow me to review: If A=B and B=C, then A=C. There is a relationship between CAIR and the U.S. Palestine Committee. There is a relationship between the U.S. Palestine Committee and Hamas. Therefore, there is a relationship between CAIR and Hamas. As was previously stated, on the order from the International Muslim Brotherhood, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood created the U.S. Palestine Committee to raise “media, money, men and all that” for Hamas. The U.S. Palestine Committee created four organizations to support Hamas with propaganda, money, and recruits: The Occupied Land Fund (which became the HLF), the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP), the United Association for Studies and Research (UASR), and CAIR.

In the sporting world we call this a slam dunk. But what about the money CAIR receives. Certainly if they are attacking Dr. Jasser and his organization for improprieties in his sources of funding, CAIR must be squeaky clean, yes?

No, actually.

Actually, the Hamas front called the Holy Land Foundation provided CAIR with $5,000 of seed money shortly after CAIR was founded, and, in return, CAIR raised money for HLF. Is there another violation of U.S. law here?

CAIR has also received funds from overseas organizations like WAMY (World Association of Muslim Youth) and IIRO (International Islamic Relief Organization). Both WAMY and IIRO are Saudi-funded groups whose U.S. offices were raided by the government because of their possible ties to Hamas and Al Qaeda.

Most notably, In 1999, CAIR received $250,000 from a Saudi-based bank headed by the former Director of the Muslim World League (MWL). Osama bin Laden identified MWL as a primary source of funds for Al Qaeda. Federal investigators raided MWL’s U.S. offices. It is not a far reach to see that CAIR received money from a source the leader of Al Qaeda recognized was a “primary” source of funding for AQ.

It should be noted the information in this article is a small amount of the massive evidence revealing the Council on American Islamic Relations is a Hamas entity whose role in the greater Islamic Movement here is to “support terrorists” as the U.S. Department of Justice has stated. They do this in a variety of ways. As a matter of fact, CAIR’s website acknowledges that all money donated to it via zakat goes to jihad fisabillillah – the seventh category under Islamic Law – but maybe we should save that discussion for another article.


More evidence is presented at CAIR and the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

U.S. Funded Syrian “Relief” Flowed Despite Radical Elements

And keeps flowing. Or more aptly put, U.S. taxpayers fund Syrian jihadists. via U.S. Funded Syrian Relief Flowed Despite Radical Elements

A Syrian rebel group benefitting from $10 million in nonlethal American aid includes allies and supporters of radical Islamic groups who share the goal of toppling dictator Bashar al-Assad.

The aid, consisting mainly of food and medical supplies, is financed by a State Department grant and routed to the Free Syrian Army by an organization of Syrian Americans that simultaneously lobbies Congress for more rebel aid.

The Treasury Department granted a license to the Syrian Support Group (SSG) in 2012, allowing it to send goods to Syria despite U.S. economic sanctions against the country. The license expires at the end of July. In addition to the known radical ties held by some FSA leaders, there seems to be no public information to show where the $10 million in food and medical supplies went, or what steps are taken to ensure it did not fall into hands of some of those extremists.

Since the license was granted, no written reports have been produced showing which brigades have benefited from the SSG’s aid.

The SSG website says it became “the U.S. Government’s implementing partner” in distributing approximately $10 million in food, medical supplies and other items since last April. A picture posted on the SSG’s Twitter account in May shows members of the group unloading supplies in boxes marked “Halal” from a truck.

Some of the aid has been delivered using a cargo plane operated by the U.S. Air Force in conjunction with the State Department.

Not only are taxpayers funding jihad, they are funding it with sharia-compliant food delivered by taxpayer-funded U.S. military.

Read it all via The Investigative Project on Terrorism.

And that non-lethal aid? Remember WAPO reported:

So far, the U.S. has provided an estimated $117 million in nonlethal aid to the Syrian opposition, according to the White House.

The United States is providing Syrian rebels with [additional] $123 million in new nonlethal aid that may include body armor and other types of supplies that haven’t been part of the assistance package in the past.

The additional money will double the nonlethal assistance to the Syrian opposition as well as increase humanitarian aid. The nonlethal aid could include armored vehicles, night vision goggles and advanced communications equipment.

Obama has funneled hundreds of millions of American’s taxpayer dollars to jihadists in Syria.

Turkey PM tells Obama to take care of Pennsylvania-based Islamist Gulen (updated)

Obama calls Erdogan a liar? via Ankara discusses closure of Gülen schools with Pakistan

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has called on Pakistan’s provincial Punjab administration to shut down its schools linked to the Fethullah Gülen movement.

“The same thing [the closure of schools] could happen in Pakistan. The chief minister of the Punjab province will meet me tomorrow [Friday] night,” Erdoğan said in a televised interview late March 6, indicating that the government’s campaign to rein in the activities of the Gülen movement would continue abroad.

Erdoğan has said he conveyed to U.S. President Barack Obama his concerns about the activities of the Islamic scholar, who lives in self-exile in Pennsylvania.

I told Obama [during a recent phone conversation] that the person who is responsible for the unrest in Turkey lives in your country, in Pennsylvania. I told him this clearly. I said, ‘I expect what’s necessary [to be done].’ You have to take the necessary stance if someone threatens my country’s security,” Erdoğan said during an interview on private broadcaster ATV late March 6.

“[Obama] looked at it positively. ‘We got the message,’ he said,” he added.

Erdoğan accuses U.S.-based Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen over the leaks and the massive graft probe that has engulfed his government since mid-December.

Will something finally be done about the Gulen schools in the U.S.? Will Obama back Erdogan – who is Islamizing Turkey, or will he back Gulen – who is Islamizing the U.S.?

Update: It looks like Obama will back Gulen after one inning of play:

The White House said Friday that “the response attributed to President Obama with regard to Mr. Gulen is not accurate.” The White House also said Obama had noted “the importance of sound policies rooted in the rule of law” as well as the importance of “mutually respectful relations between our two countries.”

The NSA has the transcript, release it.

PS: Obama touting the “rule of law” couldn’t be more ironic.

Philly: DOJ sues school district for bearded Muslim

Dept. of Jihad is on it. via U.S. Justice Dept. sues Philly school district over beard-length rule. h/t Islamist Watch

The U.S. Department of Justice has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the School District of Philadelphia, claiming a rule regulating the length of employees’ beards constitutes religious discrimination.

According to the suit filed Wednesday, the district in October 2010 instituted a new grooming policy preventing school police officers and security guards from having beards longer than a quarter of an inch.

School police officer Siddiq Abu-Bakr maintained an untrimmed beard for the 27 years he worked at the district, the suit states. Abu-Bakr is a member of the Islamic faith, which he says requires that he not cut his beard.

When Abu-Bakr notified his supervisor his religious beliefs precluded him from complying with the new policy, he was allegedly issued a written reprimand cautioning that continued violation of the rule would result in “further disciplinary action.”

Though, according to the suit, Abu-Bakr provided district officials with a letter from his imam confirming his religion prohibited him from trimming his beard, the district allegedly responded his request was outweighed by “the integrity of the policy.”

The lawsuit claims the district failed to consider Abu-Bakr’s request for “reasonable accommodation” to its grooming policy. The district instead denied the request without showing that complying would cause undue hardship, according to the suit.

Prosecutors said Abu-Bakr filed a religious discrimination charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which referred the matter to the Justice Department after determining there was reasonable cause to support the allegation.

Through the suit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the United States is seeking that the district be required to create new grooming policies that don’t discriminate against employees. The lawsuit is also seeking monetary damages for Abu-Bakr and others who are similarly situated.

“No employee should be forced to violate his religious beliefs in order to earn a living,” Spencer Lewis Jr., district director of the EEOC’s Philadelphia District Office, said in a statement. “Modifying a dress or grooming code is a reasonable accommodation that enables employees to keep working without posing an undue hardship on the employer.”

Except when it means serving cakes to homosexuals or being forced to use your earnings to pay for abortions and birth control. Then it’s ok to violate religious beliefs.

Not the first time the DOJ has sued to force sharia law on American institutions.

IRS Employing Convicted Terrorist Associate

via PJ Media » (EXCLUSIVE) IRS Currently Employing Convicted Terrorist Associate.

By Patrick Poole.

A former policeman convicted of tipping off a terror suspect is now a senior official at the IRS. Calls to the IRS for comment have not yet been answered.

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation.

He is still at the IRS.

Weiss Russell (he has changed his name from “Weiss Rasool,” the name under which he was convicted), is currently employed as a financial management analyst in the IRS Deputy Chief Financial Officer’s Office.

In 2008, Russell/Rasool was prosecuted for his role in tipping off Abdullah Alnoshan, a close associate of al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and a friend of Russell’s from their mosque. According to the Justice Department’s Statement of Facts filed at the time of Russell’s indictment, Alnoshan provided license plate numbers to Russell for cars he believed were conducting surveillance on him. Russell then checked those plate numbers in the FBI’s NCIC database, which came back to a leasing company which federal prosecutors claimed would have tipped off Russell to the bureau’s surveillance.

He left a phone message for Alnoshan that the FBI intercepted.

Prosecutors also claimed that on more than a dozen instances, Russell checked his name, the names of relatives, and other friends to see if they were listed on the Violent Crime and Terrorist Offender File on NCIC without an authorized reason for doing so.

According to the Washington Post, Russell’s tip-off to Alnoshan actively obstructed their investigation:

The target was arrested in November 2005, then convicted and deported, according to court filings in Rasool’s case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeanine Linehan said that the target and his family were already dressed and destroying evidence at 6 a.m. when agents arrived to make the arrest, indicating that they had been tipped off.

Alnoshan was deported to Saudi Arabia in December 2005. Russell was indicted in January 2008, and pleaded guilty in April 2008.

While prosecutors had requested jail time for Russell after he failed a polygraph just a week before sentencing, the judge sentenced him to two years of probation. He continued on the Fairfax County police force while an internal affairs investigation was conducted. Reportedly, he was eventually given the choice to resign or be fired. He resigned in August 2008.

Chris Farrell, director of investigations at Judicial Watch, told PJ Media:

Somebody like Russell who betrayed his oath as a police officer and was convicted in court essentially for aiding and abetting the subject of an open terror investigation has absolutely no business with any position of trust and responsibility with the government.

If as reported he holds a top financial analyst position within the IRS, it’s not just a disgrace to a discredited agency but an insult to the American public. Russell has already betrayed his country and shown that he can do enormous damage and abuse his authority and powers, which he is now free to do within the IRS.

Farrell said that Judicial Watch would be opening their own line of inquiry into Russell’s hiring and employment with the IRS.

An IRS official speaking anonymously to PJ Media said that Russell’s financial management analyst position would have required him to fill out the Standard Form 86 questionnaire for national security positions and to be subjected to a background check.

There’s no way anyone with his conviction for abusing access to a government database and damaging a terror investigation could have been vetted and approved without outside intervention. Changing his name shouldn’t have mattered.

I’ve never even heard of a case like this.


Read it all. Daniel Greenfield adds:

Rasool acted as CAIR’s representative on the police force, and even worked with the group to kill a successful counterterror-training program within the department.

Obama White House expands outreach to Arabs & Muslims

More pandering to Muslims, at taxpayer expense. That’s the bad news. via White House expands outreach to American Arabs and Muslims – The Arab Daily News | The Arab Daily News. h/t Iron Burka

The White House has launched a new outreach initiative targeting American Arabs and Muslims hoping to nudge the normally low-profile mainstream American Arabs to a higher level of social engagement and involvement.

The outreach is being headed by Rumana Ahmed of the White Office of Public Engagement. In their first newsletter email to the public, Ms. Ahmed presented an overview of services and programs American Arabs should engage, although the language often fails to distinguish between “Arab” and “Muslim,” a common challenge facing American Arabs.

Nonetheless, the outreach is unique and welcome.

ValerieJarrettThe Office of Public Engagement is the embodiment of the President’s goal of making government inclusive, transparent, accountable and responsible.

The head of the office and Director of Public Engagement, Valerie Jarrett, has a deep understanding of Middle Eastern issues and the American Arab and Muslim community. Jarrett is a longtime former aide to Chicago Mayor’s Harold Washington and Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley. She was hired as a senior advisor to President Barack Obama. Jarrett was born in Iran and her husband is William Jarrett, the son of veteran African American journalist and columnist Vernon Jarrett who embraced social activism in the 1970s and 1980s leading to Washington’s election.

Rumana Ahmed is an executive assistant to Jarrett.

The good, or at least comical news, is that Obama is pandering to Muslims to get them to sign up for Obamacare!!!!

Here is the latest newsletter sent out by the office targeting American Arabs and Muslims:

March 7-9 will be National Muslim American Enrollment Weekend! We are working with various organizations and community leaders across the U.S. to make sure members in their community learn more about health care enrollment and the upcoming March 31st deadline. We are calling on you as community leaders to also take part in this national effort of “Muslim American Enrollment Weekend” on March 7- 9th to make it a success or plan an event before March 31st!

There are more Muslims in the “engagement” office.

Why Won’t Western Churches Condemn Muslim Oppression of Christians?

via Why Won’t Western Churches Condemn Muslim Oppression of Christians? « Commentary Magazine.

The news of how Christian communities in Syria are being forced to purchase their lives by signing treaties of submission to jihadi overlords is just one of the more recent reminders of the worsening plight of Christians in the Middle East. This is a subject that struggles to receive much comment from Western leaders, or apparently provoke much serious outrage in the general public. Naturally, Christian groups and media outlets do periodically go through the motions attempting to draw some attention to this matter. Yet among some of the liberal churches, the alleged oppression of Palestinian Muslims by the Jewish state seems to keep them far too busy to devote much time to campaign about the genuine oppression of Christians by Muslims.

The latest events in Syria specifically concern the Christian communities in the province of Raqqa, which is currently under the control of the militia forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), an Islamist group which claims association with al-Qaeda. There the leaders of the community faced either forced conversion to Islam or death if they did not agree to sign a treaty of submission, which forbids them from practicing their faith openly. By imposing this treaty ISIS is following orthodox Sharia practices, which compel Christians in Islamic society to live in a subservient state of dhimmitude. Nor was the convert-or-die threat an empty one. In the past year alone, 1,213 Christians were murdered in Syria in what were recorded as killings motivated by the victims’ religion.

Malcolm Hoenlein, the long-serving head of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, and former British Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks have both publicly expressed outrage at the persecution of the Middle East’s Christians and called for action to prevent its continuation, it seems that the same passions have not been stirred among certain liberal Christian congregations in the West. Apparently they reserve their sense of righteous indignation primarily for expressing opposition to the Jewish state’s efforts to defend its civilians from Islamic terrorism.

Can We Finally Start Talking About The Global Persecution Of Christians?

Illinois: Convicted Palestinian Terrorist Worked as Obamacare Navigator

via Convicted Terrorist Worked as Obamacare Navigator in Illinois

A terrorist from Jordan briefly worked as an Obamacare navigator in Illinois while authorities remained unaware of her conviction for involvement in a deadly grocery store bombing and two other attacks.

Rasmieh Yousef Odeh was convicted in Israel for her role in several bombings, including the 1969 attack on an upscale Shufersol grocery store, which killed two Hebrew University students who had stopped in to buy groceries for a hiking trip in the Jerusalem hills. Leon Kanner and Eddie Joffe were killed by a bomb hidden in a candy box tucked on a shelf, which also injured nine or 10 others, according to a website maintained by the Israeli government to commemorate terror victims.

The Illinois Department of Insurance quietly revoked Odeh’s certification as a Navigator In-Person Counselor on November 24, explaining in a disciplinary report that the decision was “based on an investigation which revealed that she had been convicted in Israel for her role in the bombings of a supermarket and the British Consulate in Jerusalem and failed to reveal the conviction on her application.”

The Illinois DOI conducts background checks on navigators. National Review Online obtained the comprehensive Federal Bureau of Investigation background report for Odeh, which does not note any past criminal offenses.

According to the director of insurance’s Oct. 25, 2013, revocation letter, the Department of Insurance found out about Odeh’s history after the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Michigan, notified the public about her prior convictions.

Odeh, who has as many as nine aliases, was indicted in October for allegedly lying on her U.S. immigration and naturalization application papers. On Dec. 9, 2004, she had been sworn in as a U.S. citizen in a district court in Michigan, the same state where bombing victim Kanner had spent six months studying English. If Odeh is convicted, she could lose her U.S. citizenship and serve up to 10 years in prison. Separately, the Illinois Insurance Code permits civil penalties to be levied after a hearing on any Obamacare navigator whose certificate has been denied, suspended or revoked.

Arizona: Muslim who bombed Social Security office gets 5 years for weapons charge

via Aldosary sentenced to five years for weapons charge – trivalleycentral.com: News.

A Coolidge man awaiting prosecution in state court for murder and attempted murder, among other charges, was sentenced Monday to five years in federal prison stemming from his Sept. 20 conviction of being a felon in possession of firearms and of ammunition.

Abdullatif Ali Aldosary, 48, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Monday morning in Phoenix. The judge combined his sentences, pointing out that he faced up to 10 years in prison on the three counts. Aldosary has 14 days to appeal his federal sentence.

Additionally, Aldosary was fined $7,500 and ordered to pay a $100 court fee. He was sentenced to three years supervised probation after he’s released from federal prison, ordered to participate in a mental health program and to have no contact with any employees of the Casa Grande Social Security office.

“The court believes the defendant presents an extreme danger to the community,” Bolton said during the sentencing hearing.

Aldosary is accused of setting off a homemade bomb at the Casa Grande Social Security office on Nov. 30, 2012. His federal court convictions stem from materials police found at his home after they arrested him the day of the bombing. Besides ammunition, they found paperwork related to how to make a bomb and other materials that could be used in a bomb. Because of a 2008 conviction in Maricopa County for aggravated harassment, a felony, Aldosary is not allowed to possess weapons or ammunition.

An arraignment for Aldosary is scheduled for March 14 in Pinal County Superior Court. That hearing date has repeatedly been delayed. But, in a press release issued Monday, Pinal County Attorney’s Office spokesman Jim Knupp said his office has ensured that Aldosary will be in Pinal County for a court appearance that day.

Aldosary faces 22 state charges from two separate incidents in November 2012.

He’s charged with first-degree murder in connection with the Nov. 27, 2012, shooting death of Orlando Requena at Arizona Grain in Maricopa. Requena was killed at 2:40 that morning while at work at the grain elevator. Aldosary also is charged with aggravated assault and two counts of misconduct involving weapons from the Nov. 27 incident.

All of the other charges he faces in state court stem from the Nov. 30 bombing in Casa Grande. He’s charged with 14 counts of attempted murder in connection with the 14 people inside the office at the time the bomb exploded. He’s also charged with two counts of criminal damage, one count of arson and one count of depositing explosives, all related to the bombing.

Aldosary was arrested about 90 minutes after the bomb went off at 8:21 a.m. that Friday in downtown Casa Grande.

A witness provided police with a description and a license plate number of a car seen driving away from the office parking lot, which led police to Aldosary’s home in Coolidge. They found him washing his car in his driveway that morning.

The Social Security office was closed until Dec. 13 while repairs were made.

Two federal charges originally filed against Aldosary in 2012 later were dismissed at the request of federal prosecutors. A count of malicious damage to federal property by means of explosives and a count of attempted interference with the work of a government agency were dismissed after the U.S. Attorney’s Office learned that Aldosary had been indicted in Pinal County on a charge of arson of an occupied structure “based on the same conduct which supports” the malicious damage and attempted interference charges.

No motives for Aldosary’s actions in either incident have ever been given by police. They have confirmed that Aldosary worked as a temporary employee at Arizona Grain and said it is possible that Aldosary and Requena knew one another from work.

Aldosary came to the United States legally in 1997 from Iraq. In 2008 his request for a green card was denied because in 1991 he fought with anti-government forces trying to overthrow former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. He sought a green card a second time, which has not been granted.

He has been in federal custody since Nov. 30, 2012.

FBI agent: U.S. has evidence to indict CAIR for terror

via FBI agent: U.S. has evidence to indict CAIR for terror.

The Justice Department has enough incriminating evidence to file terrorism charges against the Council on American-Islamic Relations and its founders but has chosen not to indict the Washington-based group and its leaders at this time, a veteran FBI agent reveals in a shocking new book.

“There is enough evidence to indict CAIR, but the government chose not to do so at this time,” said former FBI official John Guandolo, author of “Raising a Jihadi Generation: Understanding the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in America.”

He suggests the government balked at throwing the book at CAIR for political reasons.

CAIR has cultivated a number of political supporters, mainly among leading Democrats in Washington – including senior White House officials. Secret Service entry logs show CAIR officials have visited the White House several times during the Obama administration.

Despite its designation as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator in 2007, the Muslim pressure group in recent years has successfully lobbied for changes in federal policies dealing with the war on terror. For example, CAIR took credit for helping persuade Attorney General Eric Holder to prohibit religious profiling in terror cases, a decision his department is expected to announce formally soon. It also played a key role in the Pentagon’s recent decision to change long-standing uniform rules to allow military personnel to wear Islamic beards and head coverings.

Moreover, a controversial new rule issued earlier this month by the departments of State and Homeland Security to relax U.S. immigration for Palestinian and other foreign “refugees” who have provided “limited” material support to terrorists also dovetails with CAIR lobbying.

Under the Bush administration, the Justice Department implicated CAIR in a criminal conspiracy to raise money for Hamas, a U.S.-designated terrorist group.

CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad, aka Omar Yehya, was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007-2008 Holy Land Foundation case. He and CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad remain under FBI investigation, senior FBI officials have confirmed in letters to Congress. Until their ties to Hamas are resolved, the FBI says it will not formally recognize CAIR as a Muslim outreach partner or meet with CAIR officials. The FBI has effectively banned CAIR pending the outcome of the probe.

Starting in the fall of 2008, Guandolo said, “the FBI cut off all ties with CAIR because of their ties to Hamas.”

He explains that CAIR was created in 1994 by the U.S. branch of Hamas, known as the “Palestine Committee,” to function as the “political arm” of the Palestinian terrorist group. A year before founding the front group, Ahmad and Awad had attended a secret meeting with “senior leaders of Hamas” at a Philadelphia hotel that was bugged by the FBI. An internal FBI memo written by the former head of the FBI’s counterterrorism division describes “all attendees” of the meeting – including Ahmad and Awad – as “Hamas members,” Guandolo points out.

“CAIR was the fourth organization created by Hamas to recruit jihadis, raise money and gain media favor for Hamas in America,” Guandolo said, adding that phone books, organizational charts, secret manifestos written in Arabic and other documents the FBI has seized indicate Awad and Ahmad were in leadership positions in the U.S. Palestine Committee prior to the creation of CAIR.

“CAIR is Hamas,” Guandolo flatly states.

Since 9/11, several CAIR officials – including senior officials working in the group’s national office located within blocks of the U.S. Capitol – have been convicted or deported on terrorism-related charges.

Detroit: Muslim Democratic state rep caught in tax fraud

Five years running.

Tlaib with CAIR radicals

via Tlaib blames ‘broken’ system for failure to pay Dearborn school taxes | The Detroit News.

A Democratic state representative from Detroit who helps her constituents prepare their income taxes acknowledged Monday she has been erroneously claiming a homestead tax exemption on a second home in Dearborn for about five years.

State Rep. Rashida Tlaib blamed a “broken” property tax system that allowed her and her husband to double-claim principal residences in both cities, lowering their annual tax bill on the rental house in Dearborn by 18 mills and shortchanging the Dearborn School District by about $350 annually.

Tlaib, who is running for the state Senate this year, said Monday she was working to quickly pay off the tax debt and any penalties.

“It’s kind of sad where we have a broken system where somebody can have two personal residences and nothing gets caught … and you can have two drivers’ licenses and they catch it,” said Tlaib, who vowed to sponsor legislation that would catch the problem for people with second homes. “If I wasn’t running for office, I’d have never caught it. … This is a big mistake, and I’m going to address it.”

Tlaib said the double-counted exemption came to light because of “opposition research” conducted by an opponent in her 4th District state Senate campaign. A spokesman for her main Democratic primary opponent, state Sen. Virgil Smith of Detroit, declined to comment Monday on Tlaib’s tax issue.

Caught by an opponent.

Tlaib who is Michigan’s only Muslim lawmaker, was chosen to nominate Obama at DNC.
