Islamic State bride from Alabama wants U.S. taxpayers to pay for her therapy if she comes home

President Trump has said she isn’t coming back, but Hamas-linked CAIR and others are still pushing for Hoda Muthana to be allowed back into the country. Whence her sense of entitlement, her demand that she be spared prison and that taxpayers foot the bill for her therapy? Non-Muslims paying for the upkeep of Muslims is a Qur’anic dictate:

“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).

The caliph Umar said the jizya payments from the dhimmis were the source of the Muslims’ livelihood:

“Narrated Juwairiya bin Qudama at-Tamimi: We said to `Umar bin Al-Khattab, ‘O Chief of the believers! Advise us.’ He said, ‘I advise you to fulfill Allah’s Convention (made with the Dhimmis) as it is the convention of your Prophet and the source of the livelihood of your dependents (i.e. the taxes from the Dhimmis.)’” (Bukhari 4.53.388)

UK jihad preacher Anjem Choudary said in February 2013:

“We are on Jihad Seekers Allowance, We take the Jizya (protection money paid to Muslims by non-Muslims) which is ours anyway. The normal situation is to take money from the Kafir (non-Muslim), isn’t it? So this is normal situation. They give us the money. You work, give us the money. Allah Akbar, we take the money. Hopefully there is no one from the DSS (Department of Social Security) listening. Ah, but you see people will say you are not working. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the Kuffar (non-Muslim) So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”

“ISIS bride from Alabama says she wants US to pay for her therapy if she comes home and doesn’t want to go to prison as she recalls picking her three jihadi fighter husbands from a list of men along with ‘200’ other girls,” by Jennifer Smith, Dailymail.com, February 20, 2019:

The American ISIS bride who wants to come home to the US has told how she wants the government to pay for her to undergo therapy if it allows her to return – and says she is hopeful they won’t send her to jail.

Hoda Muthana, 24, spoke on Wednesday in an interview with ABC News, her first since fleeing the terror group three weeks ago, from a refugee camp in northern Syria.

With her 18-month-old son balanced on her lap, she said she had given up the extremist ‘ideology’ that convinced her to leave her family and that she wanted to be welcomed home by the American people.

‘I’m a normal human being who has been manipulated,’ Hoda, who was 20 when she fled, said.

‘I hope America doesn’t think I am a threat to them and I hope they accept me…I hope they excuse me because of how young and ignorant I was.

‘I can tell them that now I have changed, now I am a mother, I have none of the ideology and hopefully everyone will see it when I get back.’

Asked what she would expect as a reasonable form of punishment for joining the terror group and calling for bloodshed in the US on social media, she answered: ‘Maybe therapy lessons, maybe a process that will ensure us that we’ll never do this again.

‘Jail time, I don’t know if that has an effect on people. I need help mentally as well, I don’t have the ideology any more but I am just traumatized by my experience.’

She added that she cries herself to sleep ‘almost every night’ at the thought of being put behind bars….

‘I had a good relationship with my family but I wanted a more Americanized life. I just wanted to go out, I wanted to have, like, friends, go to places. I didn’t get any of that.

‘The only way out for me was to become practicing… to become more religious,’ she said….

Among her extremist tweets was one which read: ‘You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping!

‘Go on drive-bys and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriot, Memorial etc Day parades..go on drive by’s + spill all of their blood or rent a big truck n drive all over them. Kill them.’ [sic]…

Bernie Sanders hires Muslim campaign manager who ‘had repeatedly attacked the Jewish State’

On the heels of Bernie Sanders’ announcement about his bid for the Dem nomination in the 2020 presidential race, he has hired “veteran Democratic operative Faiz Shakir,” a man deemed to be a “Progressive Superstar”.

A bit about this “superstar’s” background:

Shakir has served as national political director to the American Civil Liberties Union since early 2017. Prior to that, “he was a senior adviser to then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and before that he worked with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). He first made a name for himself as an editor at the website ThinkProgress.”

But then there is another important part of Shakir’s background, adding to the already existing Islamic supremacist/anti-Semitic problem in the Democrat camp. Daniel Greenfield states:

During his time at ThinkProgress, Faiz Shakir had repeatedly attacked the Jewish State, endorsing the Hamas aid flotilla to Gaza and attacking Israel’s attempts to defend itself against terrorists”…While the Harvard Islamic Society’s affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood’s MSA is somewhat vague….HIS was co-founded by Yusuf Ibish, the father of Hussein Ibish, who is a veteran pro-terrorist and anti-Israel activist, and Syed Hossein Nasr, an Islamic philosopher and opponent of the United States and Israel, who claims to be able to trace his ancestry back to Mohammed. During Faiz Shakir’s time there, HIS was presided over by Zayed Yasin, who became infamous for his “My American Jihad” speech….In 2000, The Harvard Islamic Society held an Islamic Awareness Week and Faiz Shakir served as the co-chair for the week’s events. One of those events included a fundraiser for the Holy Land Foundation, a group which acted as the fundraising arm for Hamas in the United States…. Zayed Yasin’s defense of the Holy Land Foundation made it quite clear that he was familiar with its true mission.

Shakir also co-authored the “Fear Inc.” report, “which implicitly claimed that Islamophobia was the product of a Jewish conspiracy, and wrote positively about the Tunisian Islamist Al-Nahda Party and its genocidal head, Sheikh Rashid Ghannouchi, who has engaged in blatant anti-Semitism, and has said, ‘There are no civilians in Israel. The population—males, females and children—are the army reserve soldiers, and thus can be killed.’”

It’s no surprise that after Sanders’ announcement about hiring the so-called “superstar” Shakir to manage his campaign, the infamous Linda Sarsour tweeted:

Bernie Sanders took no offense to the grossly anti-Semitic comments made by Illan Omar, and in fact stated that “we will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters.” He is certainly doing that, and he isn’t only only standing by “his” Muslim brothers and sisters no matter what, he’s complicit in advancing the anti-Semitism of the Muslim anti-Semites in Congress.  The Democrat camp is becoming like the UK’s Labour Party in institutionalizing anti-Semitism — a phenomenon fueled in the UK by Islamic groups with links to jihad terror.

Faiz Shakir

“Sanders hires veteran progressive operative to manage 2020 bid,” by Max Greenwood, The Hill, February 19, 2019:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has hired veteran Democratic operative Faiz Shakir to manage his 2020 presidential campaign, a spokesperson for the Vermont senator confirmed Tuesday.

The news of Shakir’s hiring came hours after Sanders became the latest candidate to throw his name into the running for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The Daily Beast first reported the hire on Tuesday.

Shakir is well-connected in liberal circles. He’s a former vice president for communications at the Center for American Progress and previously worked as an adviser to former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

He joins Sanders’s campaign from the American Civil Liberties Union, where he most recently served as the group’s national political director…..

Islamic State calls for jihad massacres in Paris, poster shows Eiffel Tower in flames

Even if none of this happens, although there is little or nothing to prevent it, the issuance of the threat is an end in itself, as it serves to “strike terror in the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60).

“ISIS fanatics call for lone wolf attacks in Paris in poster showing the Eiffel Tower up in flames,” by Sara Malm, MailOnline, February 15, 2019:

ISIS fanatics are calling for so-called ‘lone wolf’ attacks to be carried out in France, using a digitally manipulated image of the Eiffel Tower in Paris going up in flames.

It also shows the black and white flag of the Islamic State flying from the iconic landmark, as another strike is launched on a building nearby.

Supporters of the Islamist terror network have been known to release similar posters in the past, often using images of major Western cities such as New York and London.

They are often shared on encrypted messaging apps such as Telegram, to ‘inspire’ extremists to carry out terror attacks.

On Monday, the same group issued a poster depicting an artillery strike on the White House in Washington DC, the Colosseum in Rome and Egypt’s famous pyramids, threatening to ‘demolish thrones’.

On New Year’s Day, they published a chilling poster showing a jihadist with a sniper rifle looking out over New York, and another of a hooded fanatic standing in a crowd in London.

In the image of London, blood can be seen on Big Ben while other buildings burn in the background.

A jihadist with his face hidden holds a finger to his lips next to a caption saying: ‘Welcome to bloody years – The lone wolf action’….

Islamic State down to its last square mile in eastern Syria

The Islamic State declared its caliphate on June 29, 2014, and it looks as if it will last less than five years. Time to bring our troops home and work on containing jihad activity and preventing jihadis from coming here, rather than keeping American troops on endless missions in foreign countries.

“IS militants cling to last square mile in eastern Syria,” by Sarah El Deeb, Associated Press, February 14, 2019:

OUTSIDE BAGHOUZ, Syria (AP) — Islamic State group militants clung to their last square kilometer (square mile) of land in eastern Syria on Thursday with an unknown number of civilians trapped inside, officials said.

U.S.-backed forces conducted precision operations targeting the militants’ outposts in and around the village of Baghouz and worked to clear surrounding villages of remaining fighters, officials with the Kurdish-led forces said.

Thousands of people, including many foreign fighters and their families, have emerged from the area in the past few weeks amid ferocious fighting as the U.S.-supported Syrian Democratic Forces closed in from three sides.

They include scores of militants who surrendered to the SDF on Wednesday night, but the exodus of civilians has slowed to a trickle in recent days.

The United Nations opened a transit center Thursday in Suar, halfway between the towns of Hajin and Al Hol, with room for 400 people, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said, adding that a small number of displaced women and children are already using its services.

“The battle continues but the pace has changed. … There are advances but very slow,” said Mervan, an SDF official who goes by the nickname “the Brave.”

He said SDF operations have focused mainly on the village’s northeast axis, hitting posts held by IS and its cells. He said the militants attacked the Kurdish forces the night before, hitting one of their vehicles and killing a number of fighters. The militants are using new thermal weapons, he said.

“The forces are moving very slowly. They are not moving heavy weapons, very little unless guided and very precise,” he said. The SDF official said he estimates 300 militants remain inside the enclave, and about 1 square kilometer (1 square mile) remains in IS hands.

Ciyager Amed, an SDF official, said it is difficult to differentiate between the militants and civilians stilled holed up in Baghouz, citing one reason why the advances have slowed down. Another official said tunnels were still being discovered….

Ohio University Student from Oman Indicted in Rape/Kidnapping Case

Diversity is beautiful alert!

This story is from December, but I’m writing about it for several reasons (thanks to reader Anne Marie for sending it).

First I see that the story never made it to any news outside the state of Ohio. Why is that? I have a good guess!

But, more interesting to me is that the story says he is scheduled for trial this month (February), but I can’t find another word about the case.

MohammedAl-Mashrafi
Mohammed Al-Mashrafi 

If someone has a few minutes to dig, help me find out if Mohammed Al-Mashrafi is scheduled for trial this month, was the case postponed, or did he post bail and skip the country?

From Dayton Daily News,

Ohio University student indicted in rape case

An Ohio University student was indicted on nine charges, including rape, kidnapping, gross sexual imposition and menacing by stalking.

Mohammed Al-Mashrafi was arrested earlier this month by Athens police.

Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn said Al-Mashrafi is accused of stalking multiple women in and around Athens, including by social media, our partners, CBS affiliate WBNS-TV in Columbus reported.

“Al-Mashrafi is further accused of vising (sic) a local spa where he was observed fondling himself and, upon being asked to leave, refused to pay for his services and ultimately left without paying. On Dec. 5, 2018, Al-Mashrafi’s behavior escalated and he is alleged to have held a female against her will and forcing himself on her sexually,” Blackburn said.

[….]

Blackburn said Al-Mashrafi, who had a bond set at $5 million, is in the United States on a student visa from Oman. A trial date is scheduled for February.

Search Mohammed Al-Mashrafi and see that stories about his indictment were pretty widespread in Ohio at the time.

Gee, I wonder if this guy will be in that diversity-is-beautiful propaganda film being made in Ohio, the one that inspired me to write this blog!

question markWhere is Mohammed now?  Help me find out!

After claiming AIPAC buys politicians, Rep. Ilhan Omar to speak for Hamas-linked CAIR, which has given her thousands

Consistency? Honesty? Integrity? Those are for the common folk, not for the elites.

“Money in politics? Ilhan Omar will fly to LA for fundraiser with … terror-tied CAIR,” by Jordan Schachtel, Conservative Review, February 13, 2019:

Newly elected Rep. Ilhan Omar will jet off to Los Angeles next month to keynote a fundraiser for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a terror-tied organization that was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist financing case in U.S. history.

On March 23, Omar will speak at CAIR-Los Angeles’ 4th Annual Valley Banquet, where tables will cost $500….

She will deliver her address alongside CAIR-Florida director Hassan Shibly, according to a CAIR flier promoting the event. Shibly is a dedicated Islamist and bigoted gay basher. A fan of radical clerics, he has routinely refused to categorize U.S.-designated terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist organizations, according to the Clarion Project. Moreover, Shibly regularly takes to social media to demonize the U.S. military as equivalent to the jihadi terrorists that they are fighting.

The director of CAIR-Los Angeles is Hussam Ayloush, who, like many CAIR executives, has disturbing Islamist views. Following the tragic San Bernardino terrorist attacks, Ayloush suggested that the United States was “partly responsible” for the ISIS-led attack on innocents in California. “Let’s not forget that some of our own foreign policy, as Americans, as the West, have fueled that extremism,” he added. Ayloush has in the past described U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan as part of a campaign to instill “fear of the Muslims.”

The news comes on the heels of Rep. Omar’s controversial comments — that many on the Left and Right almost unanimously condemned as anti-Semitic tropes — about money in politics, in which she claimed that Jewish groups like AIPAC buy off politicians. Though AIPAC does not contribute to political campaigns, CAIR certainly does. Omar has received tens of thousands of dollars from CAIR and other political action committees. Additionally, CAIR held several fundraising events solely for the benefit of Omar’s congressional campaign.

CAIR’s fundraiser is just one of the controversial events lined up for Omar’s schedule. On February 23, she will speak at a fundraiser for Islamic Relief USA, the American branch of the terror-tied group Islamic Relief Worldwide. The Middle East Forum has discovered that she will be accompanied by a senior charity official who has often “expressed violently anti-Semitic ideas on his social-media accounts,” sometimes specifically calling for the murder of Jews….

Bernie Sanders on Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic tweets: ‘We will stand by our Muslim brothers and sisters’

Questions for Bernie:

  1. Yes, but will they stand by you, when the chips are down? Remember the Communist Tudeh Party in Iran, which supported Khomeini and the Islamic Revolution, only to be banned and persecuted by the Khomeini regime.
  2. If a first-term Jewish Congresswoman had posted a series of tweets criticizing jihad mass murder and Sharia oppression of women, gays, and others, how many seconds would it have taken you to withdraw your support from her and denounce her?
  3. Why doesn’t Ilhan Omar’s retailing of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories bother you? Aren’t you aware of how these conspiracy theories have been used to incite violence against Jews?

Rep. Ilhan Omar

SCOOP: HEARD LAST NIGHT — Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on a conference call hosted by Jim Zogby, Co-Chair of the DNC’s Ethnic Council, when asked about the controversy over Rep.

PODCAST: Demography is Destiny – The Roots of the Red-Green Axis’ Anti-Semitism

TRANSCRIPT

This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.

Former British prime minister Tony Blair recently issued a stinging public criticism of Jeremy Corbyn, his successor as Labour Party leader, for tolerating anti-Semitism.  The truth is that Corbyn has been an overt anti-Semite for decades.

What’s new, though, is that in the UK’s present political environment, Corbyn can not just get away with such behavior, but can prosper by doing so. Ironically, that’s the case at least in part because, when in office, Mr. Blair deliberately transformed the British electorate by allowing in millions of South Asians and others, many of whom embrace inherently anti-Semitic Sharia-supremacism.

Unfortunately, similar forces are now at work in the United States, as well. The anti-Semitism of the “Red-Green axis” personified by the newly elected Somali Rep. Ilhan Omar is an ominous warning of what similar demographic changes portend for our country’s values and policies, too.

This is Frank Gaffney.

Muslima from Canada: ‘Having slaves is part of Sharia. I believe in Sharia, wherever Sharia is.’

Dura Ahmed is being treated as a victim in the Canadian media, and will likely be able to resume living freely in Canada despite having gone to live in the Islamic State. What kind of a life will she make in Canada? Do you think she will raise her children to be loyal, productive members of the Canadian state? It is suicidal to allow people who have freely gone to live in an entity that was and is avowedly at war with Canada and has called for the murder of Canadian civilians.

More on this story. “T.O. ISIS bride nabbed: ‘I believe in Sharia, wherever Sharia is,’” by Brad Hunter, Toronto Sun, February 10, 2019:

A Toronto woman who was a member of Islamic State’s women’s auxiliary and captured by U.S. forces claims she was clueless about the horrors committed by the death cult.

Dura Ahmed, 28, was one of two Canadian women captured in eastern Syria. The other is a former graphic designer from Alberta.

Regrets? She has none, according to CNN. Nor had Ahmed heard of the countless executions or the murder and enslavement of Yezidi women.

“Briefly, just briefly I heard about some executions taking place,” Ahmed told the network.

As for the Yezidis, she remained non-plussed.

“When I came here I heard. I haven’t seen one but…,” she laughed. “Well, having slaves is part of Sharia [Islamic law]. I believe in Sharia, wherever Sharia is. We must follow whoever is implementing the way, the law.”

Both Canadian women have children and lived in the tattered remains of what’s left of Islamic State’s caliphate.

According to the France 24 network, another 46-year-old Canadian woman showed up at the camp on Friday claiming ISIS was “doing good things.”

Ahmed’s husband arrived in Raqqa, Syria — the death cult’s heartland — in 2012. She was in school, she told CNN, and waited two years to take the plunge.

She knew nada about the events unfolding there. And she loved it.

Ahmed called it “an easy life” packed with Pringles and Twix chocolate bars.

Both her children were born under ISIS’ iron boot.

The 34-year-old Albertan would not give the network her name. She said that as a “Muslim wife,” she had to obey when her hubby asked her to go to the war zone….

Vermont Progressive Somali Running for Elective Office Apologizes for Sexist Tweets

Diversity is beautiful alert!

His friend says the mistake was made because:  “…it was based on someone who came from a place where women are considered lower class — in Africa, especially in Muslim countries.” 

But, he is a changed man says the friend who is a “new American” like Jafar.

Here is the story headline,

Jafar Vows to Remain in Burlington Council Race Despite Sexist Tweets

Mohamed Jafar vowed to stay in the race for Burlington’s South District city council seat despite a VTDigger.org story published Monday that described a series of sexist tweets the candidate had sent as recently as 2015.

“I sincerely apologize to those I’ve offended. I sincerely apologize to those who were really surprised” by the tweets, Jafar, 22, told Seven Days. “My personality and character have evolved since then.”

[….]

Though he was contrite on Monday, Jafar, a Progressive running on a platform of equality and civic engagement, said that there’s “no chance” he’d withdraw from the race as a result of the revelations.

[….]

In the race for the South End seat, Jafar faces incumbent Joan Shannon, a Democrat, and Paco DeFrancis, an independent. Shannon and DeFrancis each told VTDigger.org that they were troubled by the tweets.

Just a sampling, more tweets at Vermont Digger.

Progs contacted by Seven Days on Monday appear to be standing by their man. Councilor Ali Dieng (D/P-Ward 7) said he was initially disappointed by the tweets but would continue to support the candidate. Dieng has campaigned for and spoken publicly in support of Jafar. Both men are New Americans; Jafar is Somali and was born in a Kenyan refugee camp. He was 7 when his family immigrated to the U.S.

Dieng noted that Jafar was young when he tapped out the offensive tweets. “Where the mistake was made, it was based on someone who came from a place where women are considered lower class — in Africa, especially in Muslim countries,” Dieng said. “His life has definitely shown he has changed.”
