An indictment alleges an Ohio man who adopted aliases including Abdur Raheem Refeeq and Salah ad-Deen Osama Waleed threatened the lives of President Trump’s children.
The Maple Heights man, Demetrius Nathaniel Pitts, 49, is facing an indictment that includes those counts as well as terrorism.
Scripps Media reported he previously had been indicted on terrorism counts, and the new charges were added in a superseding indictment that now has been released.
He had been facing counts of trying to provide material support to al-Qaida.
On February 18, in keeping with its apparent goal of remaining America’s most reliable source of pro-Islamic propaganda, the New York Times ran yet another op-ed by Mustafa Akyol, who seems to be replacing Tariq Ramadan (who is currently in jail awaiting trial for raping two women) not only as the Times’s house dissembler on Islam (since 2013, he has held the title of contributing opinion writer) but, more broadly, as the leading personification of “modern Islam” or “moderate Islam” in the West.
Last November, the Times published a piece by Akyol entitled “True Islam Does Not Kill Blasphemers.” Anyone who has even a patchy awareness of Islam knows just how dishonest a claim this is; as Robert Spencer dryly observed at the time, “if Akyol denied the death penalty for blasphemy in any Sharia state, he could end up being executed for blasphemy himself.”
In keeping with his practice of blatantly lying about his faith and its adherents, Akyol’s latest Times piece was headlined “The Creeping Liberalism in American Islam.”
“I know that Flying While Brown has always been a concern. But now Landing While Brown is also frightening.” So says Khaled Beydoun, a Muslim who claims he was victimized on and after a Delta flight last week. An interesting detail of the story is that Beydoun is a key “Islamophobia” propagandist: he is “Associate Professor of Law at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law and Senior Affiliated Faculty at the University of California-Berkeley Islamophobia Research and Documentation Project,” according to his bio.
US to ISIS bride: You are not a citizen and deserve nothing
This is why Trump is President and why we want to kick that steaming pile of crap in Ottawa out of office.
An American ISIS bride begging to return to the US after ending up in a refugee camp in Syria could be jailed for decades upon her return, legal experts say.
Hoda Muthana, 24, left her home in Hoover, Albama, in 2014 to join the so-called Islamic State, before using Twitter to call for American Muslims to launch terror attacks on Memorial Day.
Leaked photos reveal the extent to which U.S. border facilities are being overwhelmed by the inflow of migrants from Central America and other nations. Breitbart exclusively obtained the photos that are reminiscent of the Obama-era border surge. The images depict a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) processing, detention, and transport facility at a U.S. port-of-entry in El Paso, Texas. According to the source of the images, the photos were taken on February 17, 2019.
FBI statistics reveal that Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, represented by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), is the terrorism recruitment capital of the United States.
According to the FBI, more Somali American men and boys from this district have joined, or have attempted to join, a foreign terror organization in the last 12 years than any other community in the US.
“Forty-five Somalis left to join the ranks of either the Somalia-based Islamic insurgency al-Shabab, or the Iraq- and Syria-based ISIS combined,”
“Strong language,” Winston Churchill once said, “is often used by weak men and it is never used more strongly than on a weak case.” The Washington Post’s opinion pages are filled with plenty of strong language about Israel and antisemitism — and correspondingly few facts.
With growing frequency, The Washington Post has published op-eds that effectively whitewash or obfuscate on antisemitism when it emanates from the left. The recent controversy over Ilhan Omar’s most recent antisemitic tweet offers several examples.
Hoda Muthana – Muslim terrorist – ‘I made a big mistake’
An American jihadi bride living in a refugee camp after fleeing ISIS’s last stand in Syria is begging the US to allow her to return home.
Hoda Muthana, 24, left Hoover, Alabama in 2014, in order to join ISIS in Syria, where she would later call for US Muslims to ‘spill all of the blood’ by launching terror attacks during Memorial Day events.
Now, having lost two of her three jihadi fighter husbands and living in a squalid refugee camp, she claims to have been brainwashed and made a ‘big mistake’ when she travelled to Syria.
MUNICH — European leaders have long been alarmed that President Trump’s words and Twitter messages could undo a trans-Atlantic alliance that had grown stronger over seven decades. They had clung to the hope that those ties would bear up under the strain.
But in the last few days of a prestigious annual security conference in Munich, the rift between Europe and the Trump administration became open, angry and concrete, diplomats and analysts say.
A senior German official, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak on such matters, shrugged his shoulders and said: “No one any longer believes that Trump cares about the views or interests of the allies. It’s broken.”
It’s broken because your governments are free-loaders.
In late March 2015, Bashiurul Shikder made an urgent call home to ask about his wife and children. The 37-year-old American had just completed a pilgrimage to Mecca and his repeated messages to his wife in Florida had gone unanswered for over a week. Come home, his family told him. They’re in hospital. A short while later came the truth: “They finally told me, ‘they’re gone’,” said Shikder. “She’d taken them to Isis.”
In the anguished following days and the four long years since, Shikder’s search for his children, Yusuf, then seven, and Zahra, then three, has been a bitter journey, which he has kept to himself until now. As the ground held by Islamic State shrank, Shikder desperately followed his family’s retreat to the last enclave of the final town held by the group – a battered pocket of an eastern Syrian town named Baghuz.
That’s some Mom alright.
When someone says, “I’m a glass half-full person,” that means he or she tries to look on the positive side of any situation, even if the reality is mixed. In the case of border security and the spending bill passed by Congress, it would be hard, from the administration’s point of view, to call it a glass half-full result, given that President Trump won just $1.375 billion of the $5.7 billion he asked Congress to appropriate for a border barrier. On the other hand, Trump emerged from the negotiations having made significant progress — even before considering his declaration of a national emergency.
For Trump, the glass is a quarter-full, and maybe more, if he moves thoughtfully in coming months.
The Assembly of Muslim Jurists in America (AMJA) is part of an international network of Muslim scholars that preaches shariah rule as a government system, even issuing a fatwa delineating sharia’s “superiority” over democracy. It is one of many Muslim organizations now dangerously and politically active in the United States. They include the 25-year-old Council of Islamic Relations, CAIR, self-described as a “Muslim civil rights organization” with an Islamic perspective on American public issues. More recent organizations – created in 2015 and similarly politically dedicated – include JETPAC, the Justice, Education and Technology Policy Advocacy Center, which encourages American Muslims to get involved in local politics, and MPower Change, committed to creating a political platform for Muslim issues and organizing around it.
“With by far the largest Somali American population in the United States – estimates of up to 100,000 – the insular ethnic community in Minnesota offers a rich recruiting ground.
“For over a decade, Islamist terror groups have been able to recruit from Minnesota. This is, in part, because Minnesota has a large Muslim population compared to other parts of the U.S,”
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned that a hasty U.S. pullout from Syria runs the risk of strengthening the roles of Russia and Iran in the Middle East.
Speaking at the Munich Security Conference on February 16, Merkel questioned whether the planned U.S. withdrawal was “a good idea.”
“Will it once more strengthen the capacity of Iran and Russia to exert their influence?” she asked.
Pretty ballsy for someone whose country doesn’t even pay it’s own share in NATO.
