Muslim migrant arrested for supplying bogus ID’s to ISIS soldiers of Allah

It’s good that his operation has been shut down, but where are all the people to whom he supplied ID’s?

“Man suspected of supplying bogus IDs to Islamic State terrorists arrested in Dublin,”

by Cathal McMahon, Independent.ie, August 8, 2017:

A man suspected of producing bogus IDs for Islamic terrorists has been arrested by armed gardaí in Dublin.

The suspect, an Algerian man in his 40s, is being questioned under the Criminal Justice (Terrorist Offences)(Amendment) Act 2015 over alleged possession of fraudulent documents – believed to include passports.

Gardaí from the Special Detective Unit (SDU) in conjunction with the London Metropolitan Police searched a number of properties in the Dublin area today.

The man was arrested in connection with this investigation and is currently detained in a north Dublin Garda Station under the provisions of Section 4 – Criminal Justice Act 1984…

50 ‘homegrown violent jihadists’ to be released in U.S. between now and 2026

Ismail Royer, a former employee of Hamas-linked CAIR who served “more than 13 years on firearms charges connected to his work helping others get to a militant training camp in Kashmir,” that is, to a jihad terror training camp, sells a good deal of snake oil in this article. Its last few paragraphs are given over to Royer to explain how various Muslims convicted on terror charges are actually harmless. The whole Associated Press article, in fact, is devoted to trying to lull the public into complacency over the release of 50 “homegrown violent jihadists” into the general population.

In reality, this story shows up the wrongheadedness of the entire approach to the global jihad threat so far. These jihadis have been treated as criminals, and since their sentences for criminal activity are ending, they are going to be released. But in fact, they are enemy combatants in an ongoing war, and the idea that they should be released onto the streets of the United States should be unthinkable, especially in light of the fact that absolutely nothing has been done or will be done while they’re in prison to disabuse them of their jihadist sentiments. To attempt to do that would be “Islamophobic.”

“Should springing of US terrorism convicts alarm Americans?,”

by Deb Reichmann, Associated Press, August 6, 2017:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Dozens of convicts serving time in U.S. prisons for terrorism-related offenses are due to be released in the next several years, raising the question whether that’s something Americans should fear….

Among the incarcerated, according to the Bureau of Prisons, are 380 linked to international terrorism and 83 tied to domestic terrorism. A Congressional Research Service report said 50 “homegrown violent jihadists” were to be released between last January and the end of 2026.

And more are entering prison.

Former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump in May, had told Congress that the bureau had more than 900 active investigations related to Islamic State and other extremist activity in all 50 states.

Most of those convicted of terrorism-related crimes are held at the high-security U.S. penitentiary in Florence, Colorado, and federal prisons in Terre Haute, Indiana, and Marion, Illinois. Some are in for life, but the average sentence is 13 years. That means most will walk out of prison with years of freedom ahead.

“There were people I was with in prison who you’d be happy to have as a neighbor because they were normal, reasonable people,” said Ismail Royer. He was released last December after serving more than 13 years on firearms charges connected to his work helping others get to a militant training camp in Kashmir, the disputed Himalayan territory claimed by India and Pakistan.

“The guys that I’m really, really concerned about are the loose cannons,” Royer said.

Royer grew up in a Catholic family in suburban St. Louis. By the time he was 21, he had converted to Islam and was fighting alongside fellow Muslims in Bosnia. At 31, he was serving a 20-year sentence.

Today, he lives in the Washington, D.C., area, works for the Center for Islam and Religious Freedom and wants to help nonextremist Muslim-Americans find their footing in American society.

Behind bars, Royer got to know inmates arrested for only loose ties to terrorism. But he also met Richard Reid, the al-Qaida “shoe bomber,” and John Walker Lindh, an American captured in Afghanistan while fighting with the Taliban.

Some were ensnared in sting operations, Royer said, or were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Others were up to no good; Royer said he was happy the FBI arrested them.

“At any time, the loose cannon might go to the convenience store and cut off somebody’s head. You just don’t know. These guys are very problematic,” Royer said while eating grilled cheese at a hotel not far from the White House. “I don’t want them as my neighbor. You can’t sit there and talk to them and tell them that their views are mistaken.”…

Karen Greenberg, director of the Center on National Security at Fordham University’s School of Law, doesn’t think the public should panic. Those released will face months to years of supervision. Phone calls and online communications are monitored. Travel can be restricted. Weekly meetings with counselors can be required.

“We’re not talking about 9/11 perpetrators,” Greenberg said….

Royer, who served time in Terre Haute and elsewhere, offered some examples of those in line for release and their place on the terrorism spectrum.

One inmate, he said, was a former computer programmer from Yemen who was arrested for stealing proprietary software and trying to market it as his own. The inmate claimed he told U.S. officials he would give them the names of al-Qaida followers if they let him go.

“He lied to them. He didn’t know anyone from al-Qaida. He just told them some names and very quickly they found out that he was full of crap,” Royer said. “He went to prison for lying to the FBI and they put him in the terrorism unit.”

A second inmate was picked up selling night vision equipment to a U.S. law enforcement official posing as a member of Lebanon’s Hezbollah. Royer said the inmate was trying to make a buck. He was charged with attempting to provide material support to a terrorist group and ended up in the terrorism unit at Terre Haute.

“The only concern with him is that he’s a hustler,” Royer said. “That’s not to say that it’s not a crime.”

Sudan Regime Rampages Against Darfur While Involved in Overthrow of Chad and Libyan Governments

By Lt. General Abakar M. Abakar, Jerry Gordon and Deborah Martin…

In the wake of the Trump Administration Executive Order on July 11, deferring a decision to permanently lift the 20 year sanctions against the regime of ICC indicted war criminal Sudan President Bashir, there was evidence of violations of two of the five tracks included in the original Obama Executive Order No. 13761 of January 13, 2017.

First was the brutal ejection by the Rapid Support Forces/Janjaweed militia(RSF/Janjaweed) of Darfur University students on a protest march. Second, were actions by the RSF/Janjawed against several communities across Darfur. Third, was further evidence of Sudan providing a base for the overthrow of the regimes of President Idriss Deby of Chad and the Libyan National Army (LNA) regime of Field Marshall Khalifa Hafter in Tripoli. The objective of the Bashir regime is to destabilize Northern and Central Africa creating a caliphate ruled under Islamic Shari’a law from Khartoum.

Darfurian university students surrounded at the village of Sheik al Yagoot in Sudan, July 20, 2017. The translated note reads “With heavy weapons/ in the village of Sheik al Yagoot/ fearing for their safety.”

Protest March of Darfur students ejected from Sudan State University

Amnesty International (AIprotested the forced ejection of more 1,000 Darfur students who resigned from Bakht al-Ruda University in Duwem in the White Nile State, located 190 kilometers from Khartoum. The students resigned because of discrimination they were facing at the University. They were prevented by the National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS) from traveling on buses to the capital of Khartoum to participate in a protest.

The problem started on July 18, 2017, when the University Administration dismissed 50 Darfur students. The students were protesting the false arrest and dismissal of 14 of their colleagues for accused of killing 2 police officers. The NISS agents banned the commercial bus system in Duwem from transporting the Darfur students. The students decided to walk the 190 kilometers to Khartoum. They marched 17 kilometers from Duwem and arrived at Sheik al Yagoot village where they were stopped by the NISS RSF/Janjaweed units who prevented them from continuing their journey to Khartoum. The Sheik al Yagoot village chief had provided them with food and water during the ordeal.

As events unfolded, the protesting students were surrounded by 17 RSF/Janjaweed heavily-armed Toyota Pickup trucks or ‘technicals’ and placed on buses the regime had arranged to transport them back to Darfur. The students eventually arrived in al Fashir, the capital of North Darfur on July 24, 2017.

The AI reported:

The Sudanese authorities must end the continued discrimination of Darfuri students at universities […] as more than 1,000 Darfuri students of Bakht al-Ruda University [in Duwem] in the White Nile State, [located 190 kilometers] from the capital Khartoum. They were seeking to demand the release of 10 of their colleagues accused of killing two police officers.

The students are now blockaded on the southern edge of the capital Khartoum after they were stopped by NISS agents from delivering a statement listing their demands to the government. They also want 14 other colleagues who were expelled from the university readmitted. Instead of stopping them, the authorities should protect them and ensure that their grievances are heard.

“These students only want to present a petition to their leaders, but instead of helping and protecting them, the NISS have chosen to block them, in callous disregard of their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly,” said Mutton Waynoka, Amnesty International’s Regional Director for East Africa, the Horn and the Great Lakes.

“Instead of stopping them, the authorities should protect them and ensure that their grievances are heard.”

The two policemen were killed on 9 May as they violently broke up clashes between ruling party and opposition students over disputed guild elections. Seventy students were arrested that day, all of them Darfuri. Investigations into the policemen’s deaths are still underway.

Note this excerpt from an article about the history of Bakht al-Ruda University by Darfur human rights advocate Juma al Wakhil, “Discrimination Conflicts in Sudanese Universities against Darfur Students.”

The Bakht al Ruda institute is well known to train teachers. It was the first institute established in the Sudan to educate teachers. However, following the 1989 military coup the Bashir regime changed some of the Sudanese civil society institutions into Mujihadeen training camps. For instance, the Senior Secondary Schools of Ghor Tagat and Hantub were changed into Mujihadeen training bases.  Osama bin Laden and other terrorists received trained on those bases. The regime destroyed the educational system that formerly existed in Sudan by burning books at Khartoum University. They destroyed the knowledge resources that educated people. Bakht al Ruda was changed from an institution training teachers into an institution training terrorists such as the current Director of the University

RSF/Janjaweed Militia Rampage and resettlement of foreign recruits in Darfur

The forced ejection of Darfur university protest marchers by the RSF/Janjaweed was one example of the oppression of the Darfur people by the Bashir regime since the Trump sanctions deferral order was issued. President Bashir plans on mobilizing all government militias including the Border Guard Janjaweed militias commanded by Musa Hilal and integrate them into the RSF/Janjaweed militias. Two months ago RSF/Janjaweed families were transported from Chad and Niger and initially deployed in Geneina, the capital of the Western Darfur region. They were then moved by large trucks from Geneina to establish new villages around Gallab Mountain near Tabit, not far from al Fashir, the capital of North Darfur. On their arrival, the Khartoum regime delivered aid from al Fashir to help settle the new arrivals.

There has been increase in rampages by the RSF/Janjaweed militias throughout Darfur seeking to intimidate and ethnically cleanse the indigenous black African people from the region.

Beside looting and expropriation of property, kidnapping and ransom for release of hostages have become sources of funding and income for RSF/Janjaweed militias. As examples, there were reports of forced ejection from villages, torture, killing, and kidnapping for ransom in Kas, South Darfur and in Eastern Jebel Marra. A trader was kidnapped from Kas and taken to an RSF/ Janjaweed base near the town and security forces refused to go and release the man. Villagers were also kidnapped in the Katur area in Eastern Jebel Marra and their whereabouts are still unknown.

On July 22, 2017, ten people were killed in tribal clashes between Ma’alia and Rezeigat in Eastern Darfur region and the fighting is continuing. Both tribes are equipped with government supplied arms and trucksAnother group of RSF/Janjaweed militia, riding horses and camels, attacked farmers on their farms in the area of Hejair Tono. The militia force shot and killed five people and injured six others, some of who were seriously wounded. According to Hisein Abu Sharati, the Coordinator of the Internally Displaced Persons in Darfur, who was interviewed on Radio Dabanga on July 24, 2017, the RSF/Janjaweed militias have displaced over 500,000 people currently residing in the Kalma and Salam IDPs camps surrounding Niyala. The newly-displaced people are living in the open and no one is providing them with humanitarian assistance.

The RSF/Janjaweed militias are prohibiting villagers of Tabit and Taweela from cultivating their land.

Darfurians have no venue to bring complaints about their grievances or obtain justice in Sudan.

Chadian Insurgent Leader Timane Erdimi of Union of Forces of the Republic

Sudan Support for the Overthrow of the Government of Chad

Adding to the volatile security situation in Darfur, a new Chadian rebel group has been organized and is being prepared to launch attacks from Darfur against the government of Chad. This new force unified several Chadian rebel factions under the leadership of Timane Erdimi, who is the cousin of current President Idriss Deby of Chad.

Timane Erdimi is the only known person among Chadian politicians to have embraced the Muslim Brotherhood organization and became a member. He was recruited by Sudan’s National Congress Party in the 1990s. The Bashir regime in Khartoum helped him with the financial and military assistance of Qatar and Saudi Arabia attempting to overthrow the government of President Deby of Chad. Erdimi organized a rebel movement, which launched a series of attacks between 2006 and 2009 but failed to achieve their objectives. He is among the foreign Muslim Brotherhood leaders who live in Qatar.

Recently, Erdimi with the support of Sudan and Qatar, united eight Chadian rebel factions under the banner of the insurgent Union of Forces for the Republic. Under his leadership, the objective of the new group is to finally achieve the overthrow of the Deby government in Chad.

President Deby of Chad recently declared that Sudan President Bashir, backed by his ally Qatar, are supporting these rebels and are planning to destabilize his government. He cut off diplomatic relations with Qatar accusing it of supporting terrorism and Chadian rebels (led by Erdimi) seeking to overthrow his government. These Chadian rebels are part of the RSF/Janjaweed militias that President Bashir has recruited to commit genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur, South Kordofan and the Blue Nile state. The Union of Forces for the Republic is currently based in Libya. The Libya Heraldreported that Sudan, with Qatar and Iran backing, in coordination with the self-declared Islamic State province, were fighting the Libyan National Army (LNA) regime of Field Marshal  Khalifa Hafter.

The Libyan Observer reported a Sudan Army spokesperson accusing the LNA of seeking to overthrow his government in Sudan by providing a sanctuary for Darfur resistance fighters.

These Chadian rebels are also part of the estimated 150,000 Mujihadeen army that the Sudan government has been organizing since 2016 to overthrow the governments of Libya and Chad and to destabilize the Sahel region by establishing an Islamic Caliphate ruled under Islamic Shari’a. The unification of Chadian rebel factions is an indication of this strategic objective of President Bashir and his Arab allies that we have documented in various articles and posts in the New English Review, its blog, The IconoclastFrontPage Magazine and other on-line publications.

Conclusion

The US and international community should view with alarm the effort to overthrow the government of Chad, one of the few stable countries in the Sahel region. Further, the Trump Administration should appoint a qualified Special Envoy to Sudan and South Sudan and investigative team to investigate these and other accusations of non-compliance with the five tracks in the original Obama Executive Order temporarily lifting the 20 year sanctions against the regime of ICC-indicted war criminal Sudan President Omar Hassan al-Bashir. We urge the bi-partisan signatories of the House Foreign Relations Committee letter to President Trump issued on June 30, 2017 to pursue these objectives through requisite hearings as a furtherance of their recommendations contained in the letter.

Refugee Resettlement: Magnet for Middle East Migrants, Lucrative for U.S. Agencies

Look what Obama did. He actively worked to destroy this country. Actively.

The last points in the list are very revealing of how American taxpayers are being abused.
–The program is rife with fraud and corruption at all levels. UN personnel often sell access to the program and once here refugees make false claims of family relationship in order to facilitate wider immigration. Government grant fraud is common among local refugee service providers.

–The refugee program has a significant impact on U.S. foreign policy. It also affects internal and foreign policies of other nations by allowing them to rid themselves of unwanted minorities or close their borders to asylum seekers in the knowledge that the U.S. will take them in.

Review = Refugee Resettlement Report:  A Magnet for Middle East Refugees & Lucrative Business for U.S. Agencies

(excerpts from lengthy 2013 report)

  1. The program has gradually shifted towards the resettlement of refugees from Muslim countries. Some individuals from Muslim countries are Christians or other minorities, but most are Muslims. In the early 90’s the percentage of Muslim refugees was near 0; by 2000 the program was 44% Muslim. The Muslim component decreased after 911, but today is back up to about 40% and is set to rise from here.

Membership in a U.S.-registered Islamic terrorist group is not a bar to entry on the program as long as the refugee was not a “direct participant” in “terrorist” activity

16.   Refugees, successful asylum seekers, trafficking victim visa holders, “Cuban-Haitian Entrants” (which are mostly Cuban), S.I.V’s (for Iraqis and Afghanis)  and other smaller humanitarian admission groups are eligible for ALL federal, state and local welfare programs 30 days after arrival.

Refugee access to welfare on the same basis as a U.S. citizen has made the program a global magnet.

The federal programs available to them include:

∙ Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) formerly known as AFDC
∙ Medicaid
∙ Food Stamps
∙ Public Housing
∙ Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
∙ Social Security Disability Insurance
∙ Administration on Developmental Disabilities (ADD) (direct services only)
∙ Child Care and Development Fund
∙ Independent Living Program
∙ Job Opportunities for Low Income Individuals (JOLI)
∙ Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
∙ Postsecondary Education Loans and Grants
∙ Refugee Assistance Programs
∙ Title IV Foster Care and Adoption Assistance Payments (if parents are ⌠qualified immigrants – refugees, asylees, etc)
∙ Title XX Social Services Block Grant Funds

  1. Welfare use is staggering among refugees. Welfare usage is never counted by officials as part of the cost of the program. Yet, when it is included, the total cost of the refugee program soars to at least 10-20 billion a year.

As some Americans are pushed off of time-limited welfare programs many refugees are going on to life-time cash assistance programs

  1. Refugee resettlement is profitable to the organizations involved in it. They receive money from the federal government for each refugee they bring over. They have almost no real responsibilities for these refugees. After 4 months the “sponsoring” organization is not even required to know where the refugee lives.

There are 9 main major refugee resettlement organizations (Volags from “Voluntary Agency”) with approximately 450 affiliated organizations throughout the country; many are run by former refugees.   Below are the 9 Volags that operate today:

– US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB),
– Lutheran Immigrant Aid Society (LIRS),
– International Rescue Committee (IRC),
– World Relief Corporation,
– Immigrant and Refugee Services of America (IRSA),
– Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS),
– Church World Service (CWS),
– Domestic and Foreign Missionary Service of the Episcopal Church of the USA,
– Ethiopian Community Development Center (ECDC),

Below are some of the sources of income for Volags:

  1. $1,850 per refugee (including children) from the State Department.
  2. Up to $2,200 for each refugee by participating in a U.S. DHHS program known as Matching Grant. To get the $2,200, the Volag need only show it spent $200 and gave away $800 worth of donated clothes, furniture or cars.
  3. The Volag pockets 25% of every transportation loan it collects from refugees it “sponsors”.
  4. All Volag expenses and overhead in the Washington, DC HQ are paid by the U.S. government.
  5. For their refugee programs, Volags collect money from all federal grant programs – “Marriage Initiative”, “Faith-based”, “Ownership Society”, etc., as well as from various state and local grants.

The program is so lucrative that in some towns the Catholic Church has lessened support for traditional charity works to put more effort into resettlement. It uses collection offerings to promote the refugee resettlement program.

New study shows that Islam plays greater role in ‘radicalization’ than previously realized

It only wasn’t realized among those who refused to see what was in front of their faces, but this new study in any case shows once again that the claim that jihad terrorists know little about Islam is false.

“Islam plays a greater role in radicalization,” translated from “Islam spielt bei Radikalisierung größere Rolle als angenommen,” Welt, August 3, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

An Islamic theologian has investigated how radicalization of Muslims in Europe is related to their knowledge of their own religion. The widespread view that radical Muslims know little about Islam is wrong.

According to a study, Islamic teaching plays a greater role in the radicalization of young Muslims in Europe than is often assumed. Frustration and a lack of career prospects alone are in no way a motive for the transformation from the Muslim to the Islamist, according to the study of the Islamic theologian Ednan Aslan, who was quoted by the newspaper “Die Tagespost” on Wednesday.

The widespread opinion that radical Muslims have mostly little knowledge of their religion has not been confirmed, according to the 310-page investigation published on Tuesday. It is based on 29 biographical interviews with delinquent Muslims in Austria.

Why Islam is so immune to reform

Aslan, who is a professor of Islamic Religious Education at the University of Vienna, emphasizes that the “intensive examination of theological topics” represents a turning point in their lives for many respondents. His conclusion: “Regardless of their religious knowledge, a radicalized person sees in theology an opportunity to give meaning and structure to their lives.” It is interesting to note that the majority of the respondents come from observant, religious Muslim backgrounds and that their foundations in Islam already existed before their radicalization.

“The radical individuals are the only true Muslims”

Salafism is understood by those affected as a holistic concept that governs all areas of life. Radical milieus provide logistical support and help spread Islamic and Jihadist thought. A central role was played by certain mosques and religious authorities: “Persons with a higher theological knowledge function as authorities and play a central role in the spread of ideology,” the study

It is important that the process of radicalization is not only a demarcation from secular Western society, but also from the majority of Muslims. “The radical groups and individuals see themselves as the only true Muslims,” ​​the study said.

The social environment is perceived as rotten, democracy is rejected, the West is declared the enemy of the Muslim world. The 18-month empirical study was supported by the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

A recent study on the jihadist youth scene in Germany had come to a different conclusion. According to this, radicalized youths know very little about Islam and construct their own world outlook in an unreflected way.

According to the study, young people who are in a critical phase of life are especially vulnerable. Triggers could be, for example, experiences by parents, death in the family or drug use. “The jihadist appeal provides them with places where they belong and the chance of a new start exactly where they are not aided by society,” says the violence researcher and study supervisor Andreas Zick.

However, the study of the University of Bielefeld pursued a different approach and had analyzed WhatsApp chat protocols of a Salafist youth group.

Muslim Teenagers Partook in 25% of Terrorist Plots in Europe

Young or old, black or white, rich or poor, educated or not, Western or Eastern, there is but one common thread, the clear understanding of Islam, which drives these savages to bloody holy war.

REPORT: TEENAGERS PARTOOK IN A QUARTER OF ALL TERRORIST PLOTS ACROSS EUROPE

HERITAGE FOUNDATION CITES ISIS’S SOCIAL MEDIA SAVVY IN RECRUITING YOUNG PEOPLE

August 2, 2017, By Natalie Johnson, Free Beacon:

Teenagers have participated in nearly a quarter of all Islamist terror plots across Europe since 2014, with an alarming uptick in adolescent involvement recorded over the past year, according to a new Heritage Foundation report published Tuesday.

In the first five months of 2017, teenagers participated in eight of 30 documented jihadist plots, or 27 percent—a substantial increase from 2014 and 2015 when young people were involved in just five plots over a two-year span.

The trend so far lags behind 2016, when 22 of the 59 recorded plots, or 37 percent, involved teenagers.

Robin Simcox, a terrorism and national security analyst at the Heritage Foundation who authored the study, said the figures illustrate the Islamic State’s social media savvy in recruiting young people. He said popular encrypted messaging apps, such as Telegram, have enabled ISIS members to contact teenagers in a way terrorist groups in the past could not.

“This is technology that’s very familiar to young people,” Simcox told the Washington Free Beacon. “These online apps have made something that appeared such a daunting prospect in the past—i.e. teenagers having to leave their home and travel to Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, or Iraq—to where all the sudden they don’t have to make the journey. They can easily contact terrorist operatives just at the click of a button.”

Former ISIS recruiter Rasheed Kassim, who was killed in an airstrike in February, was a key figure in the terrorist group’s propaganda efforts through his use of social media to lure young French men to carryout attacks. Last year, nine of the 12 terrorist plots in France that involved teens were connected to Kassim, according to the report.

Simcox said Kassim successfully took advantage of the social issues weighing on teens’ minds to entice them into committing acts of terror on behalf of ISIS.

In September, after an all-female ISIS cell attempted to carryout an attack near Notre Dame Cathedral, Kassim took to Telegram to shame young men, writing, “Where are the brothers? You have to understand, if women are taking action it’s clearly because too few men are acting.”

After that message, two 15-year-old boys connected to Kassim were arrested on suspicion of two separate terror plots, followed by the arrest of a 16-year-old boy who was also linked to the ISIS recruit on similar charges.

Simcox said while Kassim was an integral player in recruiting young people to plot attacks, his death has not stopped teens from becoming involved in terrorist activity.

“ISIS calls for attacks are resonating with radicalized teenagers and even preteens,” he said. “I don’t see any great reason to think that would change.”

The Heritage report tracked terrorist plots between January 2014 through May 2017, detecting 142 Islamist plots—or one every eight days—over the 29-month period. ISIS has participated in a majority of those plots, notably killing 130 people in a coordinated attack on Paris in November 2015.

Wasserman Schultz seemingly planned to pay Muslim IT suspect even while he lived in Pakistan

“Imran Awan did admit to me that my phone is tapped and there are devices installed in my house” and “Imran Awan threatened that he is very powerful and if I ever call the police again, [he] will … kidnap my family members back in Pakistan,” his stepmother, Samina Gilani, claimed.

This man “could read all emails sent and received” by Wasserman Schultz “and see all files on the staff members’ computers.”

This is an immense scandal with multiple implications, and cries out for a full and thorough investigation. But there will almost certainly not be one: too many powerful people involved, with too much at stake. And that in itself demonstrates again why a full investigation is needed.

“Wasserman Schultz Seemingly Planned To Pay Suspect Even While He Lived In Pakistan,”

by Luke Rosiak, Daily Caller, July 29, 2017:

Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz seemingly planned to pay cyber-probe suspect and IT aide Imran Awan even while he was living in Pakistan, if the FBI hadn’t stopped him from leaving the U.S. Monday. Public statements and congressional payroll records suggest she also appears to have known that his wife, a fellow IT staffer, left the country for good months ago — while she was also a criminal suspect.

In all, six months of actions reveal a decision to continue paying a man who seemingly could not have been providing services to her, and who a mountain of evidence suggests was a liability. The man long had access to all of Wasserman Schultz’s computer files, work emails and personal emails, and he was recently accused by a relative in court documents of wiretapping and extortion.

Records also raise questions about whether the Florida Democrat permitted Awan to continue to access computers after House-wide authorities banned him from the network Feb. 2. Not only did she keep him on staff after the ban, but she also did not have any other IT person to perform necessary work that presumably would have arisen during a months-long period, according to payroll records.

Wasserman Schultz employed Pakistani-born Awan and his wife Hina Alvi, and refused to fire either of them even after U.S. Capitol Police said in February 2017 that they were targets of the criminal investigation. She said police wouldn’t show her evidence against the couple and, without it, she assumed they might be victims of anti-Muslim profiling.

Awan booked a round-trip ticket to Pakistan in July and planned to depart Monday, July 24 with a return ticket in six months. He was arrested at Dulles Airport during his attempt to leave….

The office’s insistence that his termination was prompted by the Monday arrest — and not the House Sergeant at Arms banning him and his wife from touching congressional computers or his six months in Pakistan — suggests that had he boarded the flight without incident he would still be on payroll.

“Does that mean if he had boarded the flight as planned the office would have been paying him for six months while he was abroad?” TheDCNF investigative group asked Wasserman Schultz’s spokesman Thursday. “Why would it do that?” The spokesman did not respond.

Awan’s wife, Hina, left the country under similar circumstances March 5, after withdrawing the couple’s three kids from school without telling Virginia education officials, packing up all of her possessions, and hiding $12,000 in cash, according to an FBI affidavit. She allegedly had hundreds of thousands of dollars waiting in Pakistan for her — money the FBI says Awan had obtained partly through mortgage fraud and had wired overseas using a false explanation.

Two days later, on March 7, House records show Hina was cut from Wasserman Schultz’s payroll.

Though Hina bought a round trip ticket with a return in six months, the FBI said it “does not believe that Alvi has any intention to return to the United States.”…

Hina and Awan were both IT aides whose jobs required access to the network, but the House Sergeant-At-Arms banned them from accessing it beginning Feb. 2. Awan and Hina were her only IT staffers, and payroll records through the latest available period, March 31, indicate that no other IT staffer or vendor was added to the payroll after their ban.

A House source said Awan was seen in the House office building multiple times after the network ban. “Imran Awan is working in an “advisory” role for Wasserman Schultz, her spokesman said, “providing advice on technology issues.”

The spokesman wouldn’t say who did the office’s computer work after the ban, if not Awan.

As IT administrators, the suspects could read all emails sent and received by the lawmaker and see all files on the staff members’ computers, numerous House IT aides said. WikiLeaks shows that Awan also had the password to Wasserman Schultz’s iPad.

In public court documents filed in Fairfax, Va., Awan’s stepmother accused him of wiretapping and extortion. “Imran Awan did admit to me that my phone is tapped and there are devices installed in my house” and “Imran Awan threatened that he is very powerful and if I ever call the police again, [he] will … kidnap my family members back in Pakistan,” his stepmother, Samina Gilani, claimed in the documents (p. 21) filed April 14….

Former Gitmo detainee donates taxpayer compensation money to terrorists

A former Guantanamo Bay detainee and Libyan national, who was paid £1 million in compensation by the UK taxpayer, gave some of the money to teenage jihadists who later died as terrorists in Syria……In 2010, the government paid £20 million to 17 former British Guantanamo detainees. One beneficiary, Jamal al-Harith, later became a terrorist suicide bomber in Syria.

Is this any surprise? The highest calling of a jihadi is martyrdom, and the mujahideen is favored in accordance with Quran 4:95: “Allah has preferred the mujahideen through their wealth and their lives over those who remain, by degrees.”

Sobering thought: remember that murderous jihadist Omar Khadr received $10,500,000 and an apology from the Canadian government because of his so-called “torture” in Gitmo.

“Former Guantanamo Detainee Gave Taxpayer Compensation Money to Jihadi Terrorists”, by Liam Deacon, Breitbart, July 28, 2017:

A former Guantanamo Bay detainee and Libyan national, who was paid £1 million in compensation by the UK taxpayer, gave some of the money to teenage jihadists who later died as terrorists in Syria.

Omar Deghayes (pictured, right) paid the money to two of his nephews – Abdullah Deghayes, 18 and Jaffar 17 – to encourage them to attend a Brighton gym behind a mosque where a network of radicalised Muslims met, a serious case review found Thursday.

The review, reported by The Telegraph, also slammed authorities for failing to intervene, after information about the gym was passed to Prevent (the government’s counter-radicalisation scheme), but the officer who received it failed to share it through the correct channels.

In 2010, the government paid £20 million to 17 former British Guantanamo detainees. One beneficiary, Jamal al-Harith, later became a terrorist suicide bomber in Syria.

Another prominent recipient, Moazzam Begg, has since built a career campaigning against anti-Terror laws with the group CAGE, who were criticised by the government for praising Islamic State executioner Jihadi John.

Thursday’s report discloses how the Deghayes brothers “had been paid money as a reward for attending the gym”.

Adding: “The payment was from an extended member of the siblings’ family who had previously been imprisoned, but released without charge”.

Lord Carlile, the former independent reviewer of terrorism legislation, commented: “We need a full investigation into how this money has been spent. We need to look at how this compensation has been used.”

The Deghayes brothers boarded a £59 one-way flight from Luton to Istanbul and travelled to Syria in 2014, and are believed to have been killed just a few months after their arrival.

I take it all back. Israel caves to fear.

Israel caved to what Dan Pipes calls it, fear of another intifada given threats from King Abdullah, the neo Sultan tyrant President Erdogan and the infamous holocaust denier PA President Mahmoud Abbas.

Not only the metal detectors, were taken down, but also those alleged high tech surveillance cameras as well, leaving, what, the metal barriers?

And MK and former Shin Bet director Avi Dichter was hoping to “sterilize the Temple Mount” from being a weapons storage preventing jihad by Islamic extremists?

As my mythic Brooklyn cousin Vinny might opine FERGEDABOUDIT!

Bibi has even promised to compensate for the death of the two Jordanian assailants shot dead by an Israeli security guard wounded in a screwdriver stabbing at the Amman legation. Now we understand that the security guard is being interrogated by Israel police.

Is the only coercive action left against PA President Abbas’ incitement of violence now left is for the US Senate to pass the Taylor Force Act? That might at least deny US funds to the Fatah/PLO for payment of the $3,000 a month to the 19 year old Hamas killer of three members of the Salomon family at Halamish last week at an erev shabbat dinner.

Once again, Bibi who trumpets toughness but comes up short because of what, US pressure? There he goes thanking Special envoy Jason Greenblatt and tyro diplomat Jared Kushner for intervening and coming to his rescue.

The long and the short of it was that two heroic and loyal Israeli Druze police officers died at the Lions’ gate shot dead on July 14th with Carlos submachine guns stowed in the armory of the Al Aqsa Mosque in the so-called Noble Sanctuary by staff of the Jordanian appointed Waqf. Further that the Salomon family of Halamish are left bereft and grieving for the loss of a zayde a son and daughter in law, parents of a five year son and his siblings, now orphaned.

This is not justice, it is cowardice and insanity in the face of monstrous Islamic evil.

The outcome is that the Temple Mount is not secure and under the control of the sovereign Jewish state, waiting unprotected for the next attack by a mujihadeen intent on killing his Jew to please his god allah.
