Detroit Muslim knifes two non-Muslims but cops say it’s no hate crime

He asked if the victims were Muslims and when they said no, he tried to kill them with a knife. But just like in Florida, Muslims are apparently exempt from (nonsensical) hate crime laws.

DETROIT, MI — Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper didn’t charge a Detroit man with a hate crime after it’s suspected he stabbed two people at a Southfield bus stop, possibly motivated by religious hate.

Nick Loussia, Deputy Chief of Police for the Southfield Police Department, said the suspect, 39-year-old Terrence Lavaron Thomas, “is Muslim, and asked the victims what religion they were” before allegedly attacking them.

He’s charged with two counts of assault with intent to murder, carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent and possession of marijuana.

Oakland County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Paul Walton said the evidence doesn’t support a 2-year felony charge of ethnic intimidation, although investigators are still interviewing witnesses.

Walton said an argument started over “bad breath and bad teeth” before it “deescalated to a physical altercation.”

“At this point … I’m not hearing anything that is going to monumentally change any of the charges,” Walton said.

The FBI is looking at the case also to see if any federal hate crimes were committed.

“We’re taking all of the logical investigative steps with regards to the sorts of violations we investigate,” David Porter, spokesman for the Detroit FBI field office, said Thursday. “There is no update to provide

“I’m not saying anything beyond we are investigating the matter.”

Thomas’s bail was set at $1 million cash or surety bond.

According to police, Thomas attacked the victims, a 52-year-old man and 51-year-old man from Detroit, after he “made several comments about his religion and asked the victims about their religious beliefs just before the assault occurred.”

When police arrived to the scene Saturday night, they found that the 52-year-old victim had been stabbed in the head, neck and back. The 51-year-old victim had been stabbed in the hand.

Both men were taken to Providence Hospital by paramedics, and have since been released with non-life-threatening injuries.

Southfield police located Thomas “a short time after (the) incident” walking near Greenfield Road and Seven Mile Road Saturday night. According to police, he was taken into custody “without incident.”

Thomas had two knives on him when police took him into custody, according to police.

Police said the victims and the suspect did not know each other prior to the alleged stabbing and Thomas is believed to have acted alone.

Thomas’s pre-trial exam is scheduled for March 4 at 8:30 a.m. in the 46th District Court.


Worse, as noted in our first post, the media is intentionally trying to mislead the American public…either that or they are completely incompetent, as this blatantly false AJC headline clearly indicates: ‘Attacker Allegedly Targeted Muslims’.

Guess who had the bad breath?

Florida: Police don’t consider swastika and “allah akbar” graffiti on church a hate crime

Either Eric Holder quickly dispatched orders to the Melbourne police or the department is woefully ignorant. via Police rule out hate crime in church arson

Melbourne police are ruling out hate as a motivation in the case of a church where vandals spray-painted a swastika and set fire to a storage room, leaving behind at least $5,000 in damages.

Trainer said police don’t have any suspects, but juveniles are likely the culprits.

The blaze spread through a storage room at New Shiloh Christian Center, 3900 Sarno Road, setting off an alarm about 2:30 a.m. Tuesday. Sprinklers were activated, which church officials credit with keeping the fire from spreading to a nearby electrical room. It was the second time in less than a month that vandals struck the predominantly African-American congregation with graffiti.

Most shockingly for church members, the vandals took time before setting the fire Tuesday morning to scrawl blue graffiti on a nearby maintenance shed that read “Allahu Akbar,” which means “God is great,” in Arabic. Church workers also found a swastika — the symbol used by Hitler to denote superiority and strike fear in his enemies — with the words “We see u” painted in.

“Obviously we don’t know the mindset of the person who did it but none of the symbols are seen to be bias toward that church. Clearly we’re dealing with someone who is immature,” Trainer said.


Yes, that’s it. A few miles south last year, “juveniles” were representing:

Detroit: Muslim stabbed two at bus stop because they were not Muslim

via Police: Man stabs two after asking about religious beliefs – The Washington Post.

A Detroit man stabbed two people at a suburban bus stop after asking his victims whether or not they were Muslim, according to police. Federal authorities are now looking at the case as a potential hate crime, police said on Tuesday.

Both of the victims were standing at the bus stop outside of Detroit with the suspect on Saturday, Southfield Police Chief Eric Hawkins said. Several people there “engaged in conversation” until the suspect, identified by Hawkins as 39-year-old Terrence Lavaron Thomas, “asked some of the folks there if they were Muslims.”

Two of them answered, the chief told The Post on Tuesday: They were not Muslims.

“[Thomas] was not not happy with that answer,” Hawkins said. Shortly after, “without provocation,” Thomas pulled out a 3-inch folding knife “and attacked one of them,” Hawkins said.

Both victims are in their early 50′s. One was stabbed five times in the attack. The other was stabbed in the hand as he tried to stop the attack, Hawkins said. Both were released from the hospital with “non-life threatening injuries.”

Thomas then fled the scene, Hawkins said. Police arrested him “within minutes.” He was carrying two knives — one of which appeared to be the one used in the attack — and some marijuana, according to Hawkins.

Although authorities have not made a statement on the suspect’s motive, Hawkins added that “we do know that he was not happy that [the victims] indicated that they were not Muslims.” Thomas “said that he was a Muslim,” Hawkins said.

Thomas was charged with two counts of assault with intent to murder, one count of carrying a dangerous weapon, and one count of possession of a controlled substance — all state charges.

Thomas could face a state charge of ethnic intimidation as well, Hawkins said, but county prosecutors were still determining whether it would be added or not.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Magistrate Eman Jajonie-Daman set Thomas’s bond at $1 million and scheduled a preliminary examination for March 4.

Michigan’s hate crimes law defines “ethnic intimidation,” a felony, as when a person acts “maliciously, and with specific intent to intimidate or harass another person because of that person’s race, color, religion, gender, or national origin.”

Hawkins added that the FBI has been contacted about the case, and are “looking at it as a potential hate crime” to determine whether federal charges are warranted.


 

Ace of Spades notes:

Incidentally, the Washington Post’s headline makes it sound as if a non-Mulsim is stabbing Muslims:

Police: Man stabs two after asking if they are Muslim

People objected to that deliberately-misleading headline, so they’ve changed it to a slightly different lie:

Police: Muslim man stabs two after discussion about religious beliefs

They did not have a “discussion about religious beliefs.” He asked people if they were Muslim and, upon learning they were not, attacked them in accord with the teachings of his religion.

They will continue lying to you, forever.


 

True dat. In fact, the latest headline by used by WAPO’s

Police: Man stabs two after asking about religious beliefs

Other media outlets also used vague headlines to bury the story.

Remember, Muslim terrorists in the Kenyan Mall Slaughter asked shoppers if they were Muslim, killing those who were not.

San Antonio: Feds disclose secret deal with Somali Muslim terror supporter, immigration fraudster

MTQ1YjcwODMwYTg1_20304

via Feds disclose secret deal with Somali terrorist supporter – San Antonio Express-News. h/t RRW

A Somali man was sentenced in a San Antonio courtroom Thursday to 15 years in federal prison for lying to get into the U.S., as well as a never-before-disclosed admission that he had helped a terrorist group.

Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim, 43, previously admitted that he lied his way into the country or left out damaging details — such as his relationship to two people who made international headlines because of their reported ties to terrorist groups.

But the FBI, Border Patrol, acting U.S. Attorney Richard Durbin and a national security official disclosed Thursday that Ibrahim secretly also pleaded guilty in July to sending e-mails in support of al-Shabab and providing money to a friend affiliated with that terrorist group. The charges were made public at his sentencing Thursday, but officials made no mention of his cooperation that led to them keeping the details secret for more than six months.

The affidavit said Ayrow was the former leader of al-Shabab and was killed in a U.S. airstrike in 2008. Aweys was affiliated with al-Shabab and al-Ittihad al-Islami, which the U.S. has placed on a list of specially designated global terrorist groups.

Ibrahim was granted refugee status in the U.S. and resettled in Emporia, Kansas, after coming through Hidalgo in May 2007. But the status was granted based on fraudulent information, the affidavit said.

He claimed he was of the minority Awer clan. He confirmed to FBI agents that he lied when he stated on his immigration forms that he fled Somalia in 1991 because militias killed his mother and that he never returned to Somalia after 1991.

The affidavit said Ibrahim also admitted to agents that he forged a close friendship with a man he knew only as “Hamza,” who joined al-Shabab around the time Ibrahim came to the U.S. Ibrahim sent $100 to Hamza through a U.S.-based hawala — an informal money broker — knowing Hamza was a member of al-Shabab, he acknowledged to agents.

Ibrahim, the affidavit said, knew that he was lying when he answered “no” on an immigration form asking him if he ever provided material assistance to any person or organization involved in sabotage, kidnapping, political assassination, hijacking or other form of terrorist activity.


Typical of late, sloppy reporting that leaves out what or who Ayrow and Awer might be.

A very tiny bit more information from the inJustice Dept website: Somali Citizen Sentenced to 15 Years in Federal Prison for Conspiring to Provide Material Support to Al-Shabaab

Ibrahim admitted that from about May 18, 2010, to about Jan. 31, 2014, he knowingly conspired to provide material support and resources, specifically sending emails enlisting support for al-Shabaab and making a cash payment to a known member of al-Shabaab for the benefit of the organization.  Ibrahim knew at the time that al-Shabaab was designated by the United States as a foreign terrorist organization.

Ibrahim also pleaded guilty to making a false statement in an immigration matter.  According to the information, Ibrahim knowingly lied in his application for naturalization as he had previously lied on his request for refugee status, falsely claiming that he was of a member of the minority Awer clan in Somalia and subject to persecution by the majority Hawiye clan.  However, Ibrahim was actually a member of the Hawiye clan and not subject to persecution.  Ibrahim also admitted he had lied on his naturalization application by having previously lied on his refugee application by falsely claiming that he had not provided material support to a terrorist group, when he had in fact provided material support in the form of cash to an al-Shabaab member.

Update from Refugee Resettlement Watch:

Ibrahim did not come in the usual resettlement process, he entered the country illegally by crossing the border in Texas and asked for and received ASYLUM.

Texas: Border Patrol Catches Middle Eastern Man Sneaking Across Border

via Border Patrol Agents Catch Middle Eastern Man Sneaking into Texas.

MCALLEN, Texas – Border Patrol agents arrested a Middle-Eastern man as he tried to sneak into Texas by illegally crossing the border. The man’s country of origin was not readily available.

The arrest took place earlier this week just south of the border city of Pharr, where an agent took into custody a man from a Middle Eastern country, a border patrol spokesman confirmed to Breitbart Texas. The man was then taken to the Weslaco station for processing and turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for expedited removal, a prepared statement from the agency revealed.

While not common, arrests of people from Middle Eastern and eastern countries have taken place along the Texas border.

Just last December, federal agents arrested Bekir Buluc, a Turkish man described by Pennsylvania’s Pocono Record as a criminal with a history of domestic violence. Despite having been deported numerous times, he keeps trying to get back into America to kidnap his children and raise them as Muslim.

As Breitbart Texas previously reported, last October Border Patrol agents arrested an East African man from Eritrea. The arrest came at around the time when the nation feared a possible Ebola outbreak which created a scare inside the processing station. At the end it was determined that the man posed no health risk.

Chicago: Imam resigns, flees U.S. after sex-abuse allegations

via Sex-abuse allegations against Chicago Muslim religious leader roils community – The Washington Post. h/t TROP

Allegations of sexual abuse by the longtime president of a leading Chicago-area Islamic school have roiled the region’s Muslims and raised questions about the reporting of sexual abuse in a close-knit religious community.

The allegations that Abdullah Saleem of the Institute of Islamic Education in Elgin, a Chicago suburb, sexually abused an adult female school employee surfaced in December, when a leading Muslim scholar referred to them in a blog.

Elgin police confirmed Saturday that they are conducting a criminal investigation into allegations of sexual abuse at the school, but spokesman Cmdr. Ana Lalley said she could provide no further details.

Saleem, who has been a respected Muslim leader in Chicago for decades, has not been charged with any crime.

Mohammed Kaiseruddin, chairman of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago , the region’s most influential Muslim umbrella group, said Saleem has resigned from his post and been replaced by his son. He said Saleem left for his native India after the allegations surfaced, and he did not know if he had returned.

“I’ve known him for a very long time; it came as a shock to me,” Kaiseruddin said. “Many people found it unbelievable that he would be accused of something like this. I found it unbelievable, too, until I talked to a few other people and got the same story from all of them. Sometimes our weaknesses lead us to do unbelievable things.”

Numerous attempts to reach school officials for comment were unsuccessful.

While the allegations against Saleem are nowhere near the scale of the sexual-abuse scandal faced in recent years by the Roman Catholic Church, they have raised similar painful questions about the relationship between religious communities and law enforcement officials.

How could one imams actions near the scale of the entire Roman Catholic Church?

Junaid Afeef, a lawyer and Muslim leader in Chicago, said religious and community leaders, especially among the older generation, initially had a “circle-the-wagons” response to the allegations. He said at first they largely ignored them, then chose to investigate them themselves rather than go immediately to the police.

“That’s not their job,” Afeef said. “I wasn’t surprised, but I was a little disappointed.”

“This isn’t the ’80s or the ’90s anymore,” he said. “For a while we insisted on believing that sex abuse and rape don’t happen in our community, because we are Muslims and Muslims don’t do that. But now we know that whatever social ills exists in the broader world, exist in our community, too.”

Odd, imams around the world can be readily found on Youtube stating beating your wife is permitted in Islam as is forcing her to have sex (i.e., rape).

And this guy was as revered as they come in the “Muslim community.” The scale is getting heavier, via the ultra pro-Islam, terorr-defender at the NY Crimes, Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Imam Stir Rifts in Insular Illinois Community:

Over time, she said the touching became more aggressive, reaching a point that she did something almost unheard-of in her community. She told people: her family, a social worker, an Islamic scholar. Recently, she went to the police. As word spread of what she had told them, three other women came forward, telling detectives that as young girls they had been molested by Mr. Saleem.

[….]

The accusations are particularly jarring because of Mr. Saleem’s stature. “In the South Asian community, he is like Billy Graham. He’s the archbishop of Chicago,” said Omer Mozaffar, an Islamic scholar who serves as the Muslim chaplain at Loyola University Chicago and who acted as a mediator between Mr. Saleem and his first accuser last year.

Islamic link in Copenhagen jihad attack on Lars Vilks as Muslim suspect killed

 

vilks5

via Danish official: radical Islamic link in Copenhagen attacks.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Danish police shot and killed a man early Sunday suspected of carrying out shooting attacks at a free speech event and then at a Copenhagen synagogue, killing two men, including a member of Denmark’s Jewish community. Five police officers were also wounded in the attacks.

“Denmark has been hit by terror,” Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt said. “We do not know the motive for the alleged perpetrator’s actions, but we know that there are forces that want to hurt Denmark. They want to rebuke our freedom of speech.”

Jens Madsen, head of the Danish intelligence agency PET, said investigators believe the gunman was inspired by Islamic radicalism.

“PET is working on a theory that the perpetrator could have been inspired by the events in Paris. He could also have been inspired by material sent out by (the Islamic State group) and others,” Madsen said.

Islamic radicals carried out a massacre at the Charlie Hebdo newsroom in Paris last month, followed by an attack on Jews at a kosher grocery store, taking the lives of 17 victims.

At a news conference Madsen also said investigators have identified the suspect and that he is someone who had been on the agency’s “radar.” He did not reveal his identity.

Denmark’s Chief Rabbi, Jair Melchior, identified the Jewish victim as Dan Uzan, 37, a longtime security guard for the 7,000-strong community. He was guarding a building behind the synagogue during a bat mitzvah when he was shot in the head. Two police officers who were there were slightly wounded.

The first shooting happened before 4 p.m. Saturday when the gunman used an automatic weapon to shoot through the windows of the Krudttoenden cultural center during a panel discussion on freedom of expression featuring a Swedish artist who had caricatured the Prophet Muhammad. The artist, Lars Vilks, was whisked away unharmed by his bodyguards but a 55-year-old man attending the event was killed, while three police officers were wounded, authorities said.

The attack at the synagogue occurred hours later, shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday.

About four hours later, the shooter was confronted by police as he returned to an address that they were keeping under surveillance. Investigators described him as 25 to 30 years old with an athletic build and carrying a black automatic weapon. They released a blurred photograph of the suspect wearing dark clothes and a scarf covering part of his face.

The Danish Film Institute said the 55-year-old man killed at the free speech event was documentary filmmaker Finn Noergaard.

The institute’s chief Henrik Bo Nielsen said he was shocked and angry to find out Noergaard was gunned down while attending a discussion on art and free speech.

Noergaard directed and produced documentaries for Danish television, including the 2004 “Boomerang boy” about an Australian boy’s dreams to become a world boomerang champion and the 2008 “Le Le” about Vietnamese immigrants in Denmark.


Confirmed:  the slain gunman was named Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein
