Obama to release 2 dozen of ‘worst of worst’ Gitmo jihadis by end of July

Obama to transfer of 22 or 23 detainees out of Guantanamo Bay sometime before the end of July.

More from The Guardian: Two dozen Guantánamo detainees poised for release under Obama deals

…some of the transfer approvals have yet to receive certification by Ashton Carter, the defense secretary, as required by law, ahead of a notification to Congress.

According to US officials, the administration has deals in place to send approximately two dozen longtime Guantánamo detainees to about half a dozen countries.

While it is unclear if the transfers will occur in one wave, as with the April transfer of nine detainees to Saudi Arabia, there is an expectation that the departure of 22 or 23 men will occur by the end of July. There are currently 80 men detained at Guantánamo, the lowest number since the US opened the wartime prison in 2002.

Florida: FAU Muslim Professor Defends ISIS Chopping Off Hands! (video)

May 24, 2016

(THE UNITED WEST) On Tuesday on the campus of Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, FL, the university’s Muslim Student Association’s hosted a so-called Islamophobia panel discussion, which was attended by the United West.

FAU Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Associate Professor Bassem Al Halabi was included on the panel of these distinguished experts and he made the incredible statement about the case to be made for Sharia Law and it’s provisions of capital punishment, including the cutting off of hands.

‘“Where there is no Sharia, Islamic Sharia, they die in dozens and hundreds every day because of organized crime. People kill people, other people or steal pizza for $10 and so – so when Islamic Shariah is saying about capital punishment – so even though it sounds like it is severe but if that is the solution to prevent any crimes, then it still has a lot of rules and regulations. I will just mention one and stop here, which is let’s say cutting off the hands of a person if they steal. It sounds very severe. It sounds very barbaric, I know. But if takes one or two people to have their hands cut off, and then there’s no more stealing and there’s no more stealing in the whole nation – that’s a much better resolution than having hundreds of people die every day.”

Looks like we’ll have to update The growing list of Muslim Student Association (MSA) terrorists.

And, from the link up top:

Alhalabi has been in trouble with the law, himself. In March 2010, Alhalabi was arrested for physically assaulting two individuals during a Muslim Capitol Day function in Tallahassee, Florida. The assaults took place an hour apart from one another. And in June 2003, the US Department of Commerce charged Alhalabi with illegally shipping a $13,000 military-grade thermal imaging device to Syria, a state sponsor of terrorism.

Filmmaker Ami Horowitz, posing as a worker for “American Friends For Hamas,” made a series of provocative statements to students walking on the campus of Portland State University recently, including:

  • “We’re not your father’s terrorist organization, we’ve kind of evolved beyond that.”
  • “We want to fund operations against Israel and the types of attacks we’re talking about are cafes and schools, you know, soft targets.”
  • “Cafes and schools — soft targets. You know, make them feel it.”
  • “The suicide bomber’s all we’ve got. It’s kind of like the poor man’s F-15.”
  • “We want to wipe Israel off the map.”

Minnesota: Muslim refugees sending ‘suitcases of welfare cash’ to Somalia

FBI ‘won’t touch it’ for fear of offending Muslims

Source: Refugees sending ‘suitcases of welfare cash’ home to Somalia

Men and women pulling “suitcases full of cash” started showing up at Seattle’s Sea-Tac Airport last year holding tickets for international flights bound for Africa.

Transporting large amounts of cash overseas is perfectly legal. But it was who was carrying the money … and where it was going that caught the attention of law enforcement, according to a report by KING 5, the local NBC affiliate for western Washington.

Those hauling the cash-laden cases were Somali-Americans who’d come to this country as refugees. They routinely send money back to Somalia. And many of the greenbacks headed to the jihadist-infested East African country come from welfare checks the refugees receive from the U.S. government, compliments of American taxpayers.

Carrying more than $10,000 while traveling out of the United States is legal as long as the traveler declares it by filling out a one-page federal form.

It was while looking at these slips of paper that terrorism expert Glenn Kerns found a disturbing pattern.

“The thing was the amount, the staggering amount,” said Kerns, a Seattle police officer who was assigned to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force for 14 years before he retired in December.

The cash couriers were working for hawalas – businesses that derive their name from the Arabic word for “transfer.” Hawalas are part of a traditional system of banking in Shariah-compliant Muslim communities.

Seattle and King County are home to the fourth largest Somali community in the United States. More than 132,000 Somalis have come to the U.S. as “refugees” since 1983, with more than 60 percent arriving since the late 1990s.

The Somali refugees continue to arrive in the U.S. at a rate of 750 a month, placed in dozens of U.S. cities including Seattle, San Diego, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Lewiston, Maine; Fargo, North Dakota; Boise and Twin Falls, Idaho; and Columbus, Ohio, among other places.

Many use the hawalas to send money back to their families in Somalia.

But is all of it going to downtrodden family members?

That’s the question Kerns wanted the U.S. government to investigate.

It would make sense, since Somalia is home to an active jihadist rebellion from al-Shabab, an al-Qaida affiliate that slaughters Christians in neighboring Kenya and seeks to establish an ISIS-like caliphate in East Africa.

“(They) have Al Shabaab, which has been designated a terrorist organization, and our concern is how much money is going to them?” Kerns told KING 5.

Watch the report from KING 5 TV in Seattle:

Kerns said the first cash shipment rolled through Sea-Tac early last year. A man carrying $750,000 in cash told Customs officials he was transporting the money overseas. Over the next few months couriers carrying as much as $2 million boarded commercial flights at Sea-Tac.

One Seattle hawala sent out $20 million last year, said Kerns.

If it’s happening in Seattle, it’s likely happening in Minneapolis, Columbus, San Diego and other cities where large Somali communities have been resettled by the U.S. government in cooperation with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Which leads to the next set of logical questions: Where is all this money coming from and why isn’t the federal government interested in investigating where it’s going? Continue reading

‘Radicalized Criminals’ Pose New Terror Threat to Europe, US

Wherein “radicalized” means the jailhouse conversion to be more like the so-called prophet of Islam, Muhammad.

Following up on the earlier prison jihad post today, via: Terrorism Expert: ‘Radicalized Criminals’ Pose New Terror Threat to Europe, US

The recent terror attacks in France and Belgium were committed by “radicalized criminals” and “heavily home-funded through crime,” the director of George Mason University’s Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center testified Thursday on Capitol Hill.

Those who have been previously incarcerated are more likely to become part of a terrorist cell, she noted.

“Prisons and relationships established in prison are key to recruitment and network enhancement. This was first evident in the investigations that followed the Madrid subway bombing in 2004, and has remained true with the most recent terrorist attacks in France and Belgium where bonds among criminals were made in prison and individuals once incarcerated together have gone on to commit terrorist attacks with their former fellow inmates,” Shelley noted in a written statement to the subcommittee.

“Law enforcement and security bodies are not organized to reflect this new reality nor are there plans to reorient their focus to address this threat,” she continued. “This nearly assures that there will be future terrorist attacks in Western Europe.”

“The exception may be the Italians who have observed these links between crime and terrorism for over three decades as publicly expressed by Italy’s current anti-mafia prosecutor and a predecessor who is now President of the Italian Senate,” she said.

“But for many other countries in Continental Europe, there is not a recognition of the problem that terrorists increasingly use crime to support their activities, and that ISIS, in particular, focuses on recruiting low-level criminals into its ranks.”

Radicalized criminals in Europe also pose a new threat to the U.S. because many of them have European passports, she pointed out. “Therefore, the new hybrid terrorists can enter our country more easily as they have more mobility than other potential terrorists who need visas to enter the U.S.”

“We may see patterns identified in Europe manifesting themselves in the United States. Therefore, we need to focus more on prisons and their role in terrorist recruitment and financing,” she stated.

But many European officials still fail to recognize the threat posed by that connection.

“Despite the fact that… these terrorist attacks have been funded by petty crime, there is a failure to appreciate the importance of this,” Dr. Louise Shelley told members of the House Counterterrorism and Intelligence Subcommittee during a hearing entitled “Following the Money: Examining Current Terrorist Financing Trends and the Threat to the Homeland”.

“And what we are finding is that it is the same network that has been involved in all of these terrorist attacks that is dispersed among France, Belgium, the U.K., and Germany and maybe elsewhere. And they’re heavily funded by crime, and these acts are committed primarily by radicalized criminals. And yet there is not a strategy in Europe to deal with this problem.

This is not just a problem for the Europeans, it is a problem for us, because we have Americans traveling in Europe, we have businesses operating internationally in Europe, we have military operations overseas, and yet we are having our allies failing to see this problem with the severity that it is and the consequences that it has, and the types of policing and intelligence responses that one needs to this new hybrid threat.”
