San Diego School Board Approves Creation of Islamophobia Propaganda Plan

Sharia law is cruising along in San Diego where taxpayers already fund school lunches that comply with the sharia, where schools sing chants to Allah, where the YMCA enforces Muslim-only swims that comply with the sharia, and where numerous Muslims – including at least one imam – have been caught and convicted of funding, supporting and waging jihad.

Did we mention San Diego is overwhelmed with Muslim “refugees”, a San Diego mosque is noted in the missing 28 pages of the 9/11 report and similar to the jihad attack in Nice, France – a Muslim cabbie drove into a San Diego crowd, injuring 36 infidels. The obligatory Islamic Jew hatred is alive and well in San Diego too. All in the Creeping Sharia archives, here.

San Diego Unified School District board members voted unanimously Tuesday in favor of creating a plan to address Islamophobia and bullying of Muslim students.

More than 200 members and supporters of the city’s Muslim community erupted into applause after the vote.

Earlier in the meeting, a Muslim leader urged the district to produce a plan.

“You guys are essentially the reason why this district is one of the safest in the nation,” said Hanif Mohebi, executive director of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Interestingly, KPBS doesn’t tell reader’s that CAIR is listed by the U.S. government as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Islamic terror financing conviction in U.S. history; banned by the FBI; and declared a Hamas terrorist front group by a federal judge.

Not surprisingly, KPBS is part of San Diego State University where Muslim Students Trapped, Bullied San Diego State’s Jewish President – who had to be literally rescued by police.

Mohebi also told the board that according a CAIR survey, some 55 percent of students asked said they had been bullied, while one out of five said school staff were not supportive.

“We must provide the right resources to (educators)” to lessen bullying incidents, by suggesting professional development and the proper curriculum, Mohebi said.

Undoubtedly, Hamas-front group CAIR has already written the Islamic propaganda and will have final approval of any materials. Non-Muslims beware.

Mohebi said when he was harassed when he was in school, but remembered teachers who protected him.

Several students — some of whom said they were physically attacked because of their religion — also urged the district to come up a plan.

Ten-year-old Tasmeya Hammad said another girl became hostile and violent after she asked Tasmeya why her mother wore a head scarf.

“Please help us stop this kind of blame so no one else gets hurt,” she added.

Superintendent Cindy Marten has been directed to produce a report this fall offering solutions on how to reduce bullying of Muslim students.

Luqmaan Bokhary, a high school student, said many Muslim students go to school in fear, which also affects their academic performance. He added that his mother, a San Diego Unified student in the 1980s, also was harassed.

During the meeting, numerous Muslim members of the audience held lime-green signs that read, “Protect our kids.”

Board members Sharon Whitehurst-Payne and Kevin Beiser originally proposed the district come up with a plan.

Whitehurst-Payne said she was appalled by how some Muslim students are treated, and the district “has to get a handle on it.”

Their colleague, Richard Barrera, said such harassment is not new: During the 1979-81 Iranian hostage crisis, Muslim students were bullied. He praised the young Muslim students who spoke Tuesday for “making society and our school system better.”

Board member John Lee Evans commended the children for speaking out at a time when the nation’s political discourse has taken a negative turn.

In praise of the speakers, Evans added that while he doesn’t like to generalize, he doesn’t remember hearing a “more respectful and articulate group talking about this issue.”


Not to generalize, but who kills more people in the name of their hateful ideology on a regular basis than any other?

Bullying has occurred since the beginning of time but only Muslims are forcing schools to develop curriculum to promote Islam and enforce sharia on the most vulnerable of people – young, impressionable children. It’s called dawah and it is required of all Muslims and the terrorist group CAIR – notorious for faking hate crimes and blaming Americans – is taking full advantage to again allow Islamic supremacist ideology and sharia to creep further in America.

Stay classy San Diegostan.

Minnesota: City council gives terror mosque exclusive use of public park, violating fed law

This is the third mosque post this week (see here and here). The theme is the same. Muslims bamboozle (i.e., lie to – taqiyya), or collude with, city councils to gain special privileges for mosques, then wreak havoc. We’ve been referring to it for years as the “Zoning Jihad” and have a growing category of examples (see here). A growing trend is converting churches to mosques. In the case below a Lutheran high school became a mega-mosque complex.

A radical mosque known for breeding terrorists has been granted special privileges by the city of Bloomington, Minnesota, which allows its members to take over a public park and treat it as their own, to the exclusion of other residents, according to complaints filed by a citizens group.

The Friends of Smith Park started a petition drive and took its case to the Bloomington City Council with a formal complaint Monday night.

At issue is the Dar al-Farooq mosque, which WND has previously reported has a record of turning Somali refugees into jihadists for ISIS and other terror groups.

At least half a dozen known Somali terrorists have attended Dar al-Farooq in recent years including Adnan Farah, 20, and his brother Mohamed, 22, who pleaded guilty in April to providing material support to ISIS. The mosque is headed by Waleed Idris al-Meneesey, who preaches hatred of Jews straight from the Quran and the hadiths.

Now it has come to light that city officials in Bloomington have given al-Meneesy and his Sharia-compliant followers special privileges that violate its conditional-use permit, or CUP, and that are not offered to any other religious group, said attorney and retired Lt. Col. Larry Frost. By doing so, Frost said the city has exposed itself to potential lawsuits from churches and synagogues in the area that have not been afforded the same rights.

“According to your police officers, you’ve privileged Dal al-Farooq worshipers above all other religions. You’ve made Smith Park a Dar al-Farooq-only zone after the park is already closed, excluding citizens of all other faiths and those of no faith,” said Frost, who represents Friends of Smith Park.

The council members sat mum during Frost’s comments.

The list of abuses and alleged violations by Dar al Farooq, which was allowed to build in a residential area, is long. They range from dumping asbestos in the trash to having three to five times the occupancy allowed by its conditional-use permit, making excess noise, shining car lights and producing overflow parking at all hours of the night during the month of Ramadan – and to a lesser extent every weekend. The mosque members take over the adjacent public park and force out residents of nearby neighborhoods, often staying in the park well after the posted closing time of 11 p.m.

Neighbors have been told by mosque workers to get out of Smith Park “because the park belongs to [the Muslims],” said one local woman.

Another local resident, Matilda Zumba, who lives in a neighborhood near the mosque, approached the city council Monday night with an interpreter. She said she has two small children who are always playing outside.

“I’m very afraid because there is a lot of traffic and a lot of speeding and the people of Dar al-Farooq don’t respect our speed limits and the safety of our children,” Zumba told the council. “I’m also now afraid to take our children to the park because there are many people there who do not respect the rights of our own children to play there.

“A lot of times the other children don’t want to work together to share with our children. Sometimes their parents are there and they may shout at them but they don’t do anything, they just continue to let their children interfere. The park is very important to the Spanish community especially and we met there a lot, but now we don’t because we don’t feel safe.”

Mosque attendees have flooded the neighborhood with offsite parking, blocked driveways and walked through neighbors’ yards without permission. The city has told neighbors if they park in joint-use parking, the neighbors have to “hurry to the sidewalk” and get out of the parking lot so it would be available for the mosque.

Last week one supporter of the neighborhood group witnessed mosque abusers using joint-parking areas to practice driving at 1:30 a.m. – by using city garbage cans as obstacles. When the witness came to film the event, three young mosque members confronted him, one demanding to know what he was doing and telling him he could not film the offending car or its license. Later, a police officer told the witness that “only mosque members can use the parking lots after normal park hours” – in other words, the public space is reserved for use by one particular religion after it’s closed to the public.

The city took more than three years and 67 drafts to complete the conditional-use permit with the mosque. Built into that contract is a requirement that the city use a laborious five-phase, six-month enforcement process to correct any Dar al-Farooq violations.

“Clearly that’s a non-enforcement clause,” Frost said. “The city has to give this amazing provision to every new church applicant, and I would argue, every current CUP holder can demand the same. Why? Because you are privileging Dar al-Farooq above other religions.

“One of your own council members said ‘I feel like we’re punishing applicants that came after Dar al Farook,’ because you required them to do things that Dar al-Farooq is not required to do.”

The city council granted a conditional-use permit to Dar al Farooq enabling the mosque to operate in a residential neighborhood, then failed to enforce either the CUP or the joint-use agreement allowing the mosque to use Smith Park.

As a result, the neighbors of Smith Park have been reduced to second-class status, unable to use and enjoy a public park adjacent to their neighborhood.

Mosque actions violating the CUP and JUA were not stopped because the city attorney insisted that the federal Religious Land-use and Incarcerated Persons Act, commonly called RLUIPA, did not allow the city to enforce the CUP/JUA, effectively making the neighborhood around Dar al Farooq a zoning-free area. The city attorney also told council members that enforcement of the CUP could result in lawsuits against council members in their private capacities. Both legal ideas are flatly false, said Frost.

“Your own city attorney, former attorney, told you that you had to do that, but you made a grave legal and moral error when you signed a CUP and then didn’t enforce it, because that’s not what RLUPA says,” Frost told the council on Monday night.

RLUIPA is a federal statute that requires local governments to issue permits for houses of worship equally when it comes to construction projects.

“But once you have the CUP you’re no longer in the permitting phase – it is not a legal permitting issue,” Frost said. “Despite what your previous city attorney said, you can enforce the CUP and you must.”

Friends of Smith Park are asking only that all city council resolutions concerning Dar al Farooq be enforced, including retroactive enforcement where legal and appropriate – exactly as would be the case for all other religious institutions with a conditional-use permit.

Hillary Clinton’s Ties with Al-Qaeda Fundraiser Abdurahman Alamoudi

al Qaeda financier Alamoudi, 3rd form left, with Hillary Clinton

Source: EXCLUSIVE: How Hillary Clinton Mainstreamed Al-Qaeda Fundraiser Abdurahman Alamoudi | PJ Media

By Patrick Poole

Right now, prisoner #47042-083, Abdurahman Alamoudi, sits in his cell in a federal prison in Ashland, Kentucky.

It’s a long way down from being one of Hillary Clinton’s favorite colleagues. Alamoudi organized White House events during the Bill Clinton administration. Under Hillary’s supervision, he held official positions: Alamoudi was strategically placed at the White House, the Pentagon, and the State Department.

That is, until he was arrested and convicted in a bizarre Libyan intelligence/al-Qaeda assassination plot to kill the Saudi crown prince.

Later, he was identified by the Treasury Department as an Al-Qaeda fundraiser who had operated inside the United States.

Hillary Clinton and Abdurahman Alamoudi were no mere acquaintances. According to an affidavit filed in court by Georgetown professor John Esposito, Alamoudi was asked by Hillary Clinton to arrange the first White House Ramadan iftar dinner in 1996:

 

Hillary - Alamoudi iftar (Esposito)

It appears that no media outlet has ever asked Hillary Clinton about her relationship to Alamoudi.

Under the Clinton administration, Alamoudi was tasked with founding and developing the Defense Department’s first-ever Muslim chaplain program. Alamoudi himself handpicked the Pentagon’s Muslim chaplain corps.

As I reported in 2010, one of those chaplain trainers was al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.

The State Department, during the Clinton administration, appointed Alamoudi as a goodwill ambassador and sent him on six official taxpayer-funded trips to the Middle East. Remarkably, after Alamoudi’s 2003 arrest a federal agent testified in an affidavit about a recording of Alamoudi complaining to an audience that the 1998 al-Qaeda bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania did not kill enough Americans.

Years before he was helping Hillary Clinton arrange official dinners at the White House, Alamoudi had already been known to the FBI for al-Qaeda fundraising.

Yet Alamoudi became a regular face at the White House. Here, he is pictured with President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore:

After the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, the speechwriter for the “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel Rahman told the FBI that Alamoudi had been funneling $5000 payments from Osama bin Laden to Rahman. Rahman is currently serving a life sentence on terror charges for his role in the “Day of Terror” plot targeting New York landmarks.

In a July 2005 press release announcing a terror designation, the Treasury Department stated that Alamoudi “had raised money for al Qaida in the United States” and that his arrest was “a severe blow to al Qaida.”

Alamoudi’s donation to Hillary Clinton’s 2000 U.S. Senate campaign became an issue in October 2000. Then, Alamoudi was caught on video speaking in Lafayette Park across from the White House publicly announcing his support for Hamas and Hezbollah:

I have been labelled by the New York media as a supporter of Hamas. Anybody a supporter of Hamas here? [crowd roars] Anybody a supporter of Hamas here? [crowd roars again] Anybody a supporter of Hamas here? [crowd roars a third time] Here that, Bill Clinton? We are all supporters of Hamas. Allahu Akbar.I wish they also added that I am a supporter of Hezbollah. Anybody supports Hezbollah here? [crowd roars] Anybody supports Hezbollah here? [crowd roars again] Takbir! [crowd responds, “Allahu Akhbar”]

When questioned by the New York Daily News about his statement, Alamoudi first denied making it –he said that the reporters should “check their Arabic.”

When told that he had made the statement in English, Alamoudi responded by saying: “It was in English? Oh my god, I forgot.”

Days before Alamoudi publicly pledged his allegiance to two terror organizations designated as such by President Bill Clinton, he had just returned from a State Department-funded trip to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Oman.

Vermont: Lone councilman knew about, supported secret plan to flood town with Syrian Muslims

And still does. via: Unraveling Rutland (VT) may help every town in the same boat! « Refugee Resettlement Watch

As I travel around the US meeting with citizens concerned about the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program, patterns are developing and one of those is that there is no doubt that when your town is targeted for a new resettlement site (or expansion of an old one) it is done with the utmost secrecy and very often involves an over-zealous elected official (a mayor or city council member).

Source: Lone alderman in on refugee secret ‘stunned’ at speed of decision – Watchdog.org

William Notte – knew about, supports Muslim refugee influx

SOMETHING NOT RIGHT: William Notte, president of the Rutland Board of Aldermen, was the only city official other than the mayor to know about a secret plan to make Rutland a refugee resettlement community.

A secret plan to make Rutland a permanent refugee resettlement community has divided residents and put the mayor’s political future in doubt. But at least one member of the Board of Aldermen knew about the secret, and that official told Watchdog he is “stunned” at how fast the plan was carried out.

Prior to announcing the resettlement of Syrian refugees, Rutland Mayor Louras held secret meetings with representatives of the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program, the State Department, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants and Gov. Peter Shumlin. He also consulted with a single alderman: Board of Aldermen President William Notte.

In this interview, Notte answered Watchdog’s questions about his role in the backroom deal to make Rutland a refugee resettlement community.

Watchdog:  Mayor Louras hid his refugee resettlement plans from voters, police and even the Board of Aldermen. What is your response?

Notte: To make clear, I did know that the mayor had suggested Rutland to the VRRP a couple of months before his announcement. I was the only alderman that knew. I had the opportunity to sit in on one meeting with him and VRRP.

As far as the secrecy before the announcement, I really don’t have much issue with that. It was a fact-finding period. Quite frankly, if Rutland was put under a microscope and it was found that we didn’t have a stellar job base or we did not have a supply of good apartments for people who want to move into this community, those are problems to work on, but certainly nothing I want to bandy about as a public banner.

 …
Notte: I’ll just say that I support refugee resettlement in Rutland — I think it’s the right thing to do (and) I think it’s a good thing to do for this community  — but I remain stunned at how quickly everything clicked into place.

Notte: The point I try to get across to people when I’ve been called about this is, the mayor didn’t make this decision, nor did the Board of Aldermen. The mayor didn’t decide to have refugees resettle here; the mayor asked the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program to consider us. The decision as to whether or not refugees are going to come here ultimately rests with he State Department.

He didn’t sign any official document, and the Board of Aldermen didn’t sign any official decree saying refugees are going to come here. The mayor essentially said, “Hey, please consider us,” and the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program decided to do so, and now the matter rests with the State Department. And I think there’s some confusion about how the process actually is playing out, which is understandable whenever bureaucracy is involved, and we’re talking about a federal program, so the bureaucracy is convoluted to say the least.

But this isn’t a case of the mayor making a unilateral decision for Rutland



Actually it was. The mayor unilaterally offered up Rutland without seeking input from residents. Both the mayor and the alderman who knew about it were 100% for bringing in Syrian Muslims to Rutland and still are. They don’t care if people oppose it, even if a majority oppose it. Both will likely flee town when the shit hits the fan.

As Ann Corcoran, whom Donald Trump should offer a position of some sort, writes:

The lesson I’m learning is this—-as it is confirmed to me repeatedly that refugee seeding plans are done in secrecy, you must be working locally to get the right people elected to political office and get mayors like this one out!

And alderman/women and city council members too.

It won’t stop with the 100 Muslim migrants forced on the small town. Contact the City of Rutland’s Board of Aldermen Members with email addresses.


We’ve been alerted it’s happening in South Carolina too: Another Refugee Resettlement Planned For SC COMPLEX WOULD BE LOCATED FIVE MILES FROM NUCLEAR POWER PLANT!

 

Retraité! French media to stop publishing photos and names of Muslim terrorists

allah-fantSource: French media to stop publishing photos and names of terrorists

Several French news organisations have said they will no longer publish photographs of people responsible for terrorist killings, to avoid bestowing “posthumous glorification”.

Le Monde published an editorial after the latest attack, the murder of an elderly priest in a church near Rouen by two men claiming allegiance to Islamic State. Under the headline “Resisting the strategy of hate”, Le Monde argued on Wednesday that all elements of society had to be involved in the struggle against terrorism, and that media organisations had a special role to play.

“The sites and newspapers that produce this information cannot excuse themselves from self-examination on several fronts. Since Isis terrorism first appeared, Le Monde has changed its practices several times,” the newspaper said.

It first chose not to republish images from Isis propaganda documents. Then, after the attack in Nice on 14 July, when a truck drove through crowds enjoying the Bastille Day public holiday, Le Monde said it had decided to “no longer publish photographs of the perpetrators of killings, to avoid the potential effect of posthumous glorification”.

The newspaper said it would continually debate other practices in relation to the coverage of terrorism.

The television station BFM-TV and the Catholic newspaper La Croix said they had chosen the same course of action. “We made the decision last night to no longer show pictures of the terrorists until further notice,” BFM-TV editorial director Hervé Béroud told Agence France-Presse. “We have been thinking about this for some time. Our decision was speeded up by Nice, by the repeated tragedies.”

Europe 1 radio said it would not reproduce photographs of perpetrators of terrorist killings on its website and would not broadcast their names. The France 24 television channel is also expected to announce that it will no longer show the pictures in its broadcasts.

The blackout is not total. Michel Field, the executive director of news at the state-run France Télévisions, issued a statement saying: “Our duty is to inform, it’s the right of citizens to be informed. And we must resist this race towards self-censorship and grand declarations of intention.”

Field said suppressing the names and pictures of terrorists would contribute to the anxiety of the public and the feeling that they were being kept in the dark by the mainstream media, adding that such censorship was ridiculous in the age of social media.

Johan Hufnagel, the editor of the newspaper Libération, said it would take decisions on a case-by-case basis. “We are always challenging our position regarding pictures. Each story is different, each terrorist attack is different and we adapt our front page considering that,” Hufnagel told the Guardian by email.

Le Figaro and Nouvel Observateur have also chosen, for the time being, not to follow Le Monde’s example. British media – the Guardian included – continue to publish photographs of people responsible for acts of terrorism.

In the aftermath of the Nice attack, a psychoanalyst, Fethi Benslama, who teaches at Paris Diderot university, suggested on French radio: “Perhaps it is time that there was a pact in the media to no longer publish the names and pictures of the perpetrators of these acts, as it’s a really big boost to their efforts to make themselves world famous, even while their victims are anonymous and will remain anonymous.”

Benslama said this “glorification” encouraged others to carry out attacks, “to gain glory in the eyes of their commanders and their friends”. He added: “They leave their identity cards – they want to be identified very quickly.”


“Benslama is a psychoanalyst who, although a secular thinker, identifies himself as a person of Muslim culture…”

Next, they’ll be adopting BBC standards for reporting Muslim terror attacks.

Germany: Knife-wielding Muslims attack doctor in surgery, cops release say no crime (video)

Did you think a day would go by without Muslims attacking their European hosts? Caught and released same day by German police! h/t Vlad Tepes

More detail via Man Shouting Allahu Akhbar Tried to Behead Surgeon

The incident took place in the town of Troisdorf on Monday morning. Speaking with FOCUS Online, Dr. Attila Tan, the surgeon who was attacked, recounted his horrific experience.

He said: “The patient came in at 10am, accompanied by his girlfriend, who was veiled. He radiated aggression, which increased when I began to treat him,”

The man was released from the practice in mid-July, having undergone treatment for a broken leg, but returned on Monday in pain.

Dr. Tan said: “I explained everything to him, and even showed him exercises he should do. But he didn’t listen to me at all.”

The 19 year old then stormed out of the practice, before returning with his brother and father, who was armed with a knife which had a 30cm serrated blade.

The surgeon was operating on another patient when his wife called for help at the practice’s reception. The men had attacked and insulted Dr. Tan’s wife, one of them throwing a marble bust at her, which narrowly missed.

The father of the man with the broken leg rushed at Dr. Tan, with a knife, and shouted “Allahu akhbar” before threatening to behead the surgeon.

The sons of the attacker then held Dr. Tan down. The doctor told Focus Online: “Their father kept screaming at me — ‘Apologise to my son, get on your knees and kiss his hand’.”

Panic broke out in the practice, with one 82-year-old patient even jumping through the window to escape the violence. Police arrived before the confrontation could escalate as, when the father and sons trio stormed the practice, some patients and colleagues of Dr. Tan had left to notify the authorities.

One witness recalled: “We heard things flying around, and screams and stuff. Then three times ‘Allahu akbar’ was shouted. At that moment I thought, it’s all over. I thought he killed Dr. Tan and his wife.”

Officers arrested the 19 year old and his girlfriend, but the man’s father and brother managed to flee the scene. Accompanied by a lawyer, the pair later presented themselves at the police station on Monday evening. Dr. Tan’s wife had to be hospitalised after witnessing the morning’s events, as she had suffered a heart attack.

  • Arrest warrant issued after no-show in court
  • Grade-school girl ready to testify

A 49-year-old man reportedly boarded a flight for the United Arab Emirates two days before he was to stand trial in Kennewick on charges of raping and molesting a grade-school girl.

A nationwide arrest warrant was issued this week for Khalid A. Fathey after he was a no-show at his Benton County Superior Court trial.

The U.S. Marshals Service then discovered that Fathey left Seattle on July 23 on a plane bound for Dubai, said Deputy Prosecutor Anita Petra.

She did not know if it was a one-way ticket or round trip.

Fathey was free on his personal recognizance since being charged with the sex crimes in May 2015. He now faces a new charge of bail jumping.

Judge Vic VanderSchoor waited 1  1/2 hours Monday — in case Fathey had car trouble or another problem — before calling off the trial, releasing the jurors and ordering the arrest warrant.

“Needless to say, the victim’s family was very upset by the news,” Petra told the Herald. “They wanted justice in this case and for this case to be over.”

Needless to say, the victim’s family was very upset by the news. They wanted justice in this case and for this case to be over.

Anita Petra, Benton County deputy prosecutor

Kennewick attorney Kevin Holt, who was hired by Fathey, said he met with his client for about eight hours on July 21 and then prepared for the trial.

“He assured me that he would be here Monday morning,” Holt said.

Fathey’s brother showed up at Holt’s office as scheduled at 8 a.m. and the two headed to court, but they never heard from Fathey.

Holt said he has not seen an actual report from the Marshals Service that his client fled the country. The brother is supposed to call him with an update on Wednesday afternoon.

Holt said his client is from northern Iraq. Fathey had been in the military and worked with the United States government after the 2003 invasion, he said.

Since Fathey was no longer welcome in Iraq under the new regime, he sought political asylum and came to the United States with his wife and children as political refugees, Holt said.

Fathey and his wife were paid by the state for four years to be full-time caregivers for a Tri-City woman who had medical issues, he said.

Fathey contends the sex crimes did not happen and were made up by the girl’s family. Fathey and his family had to move to Spokane from Kennewick about six months ago because they were afraid for their safety in the Tri-Cities, especially after someone reportedly set fire to their car, said Holt.

“It really is a sad situation where our system has gotten so biased that a person has to fear for his life and would run, as opposed to face justice,” Holt said.

Prosecutors allege the girl’s mother became suspicious in December 2014 when she found the girl and Fathey together, and Fathey “appeared nervous.”

The girl later disclosed to her mother that Fathey allegedly kissed her and touched her sexually several times over a six-month period. Fathey “told (the girl) never to tell or she was going to get in trouble,” documents said.

Before the police were involved, Fathey called his religious leader, who had them sit down together with the girl’s parents, court documents said. Fathey admitted to the inappropriate touching but would not elaborate, documents said.

The girl’s mother fainted during the meeting, and police were called.

Fathey is charged with one count of first-degree rape of a child and two counts of first-degree child molestation. All three counts include the aggravating circumstance that he used a position of trust to commit the crimes.

If somebody sees Fathey in the Tri-Cities, they are asked to call Benton County dispatch at 509-628-0333.

People who have information to pass on about Fathey or the case are encouraged to call the Kennewick Police Department at 509-585-4208.
