Democrats to Spend 9/11 Partying w/Muslim Brotherhood front groups CAIR, ISNA

Daniel Greenfield

This is like spending Victory in Europe Day dressing up in Nazi uniforms or Pearl Harbor Day playing kamikaze. But it’s business as usual for the Democratic Party, which does treason like it’s going out of style.

First up is a very special 9/11 party with ISNA over in Lansing as the Islamic Society of Greater Lansing throws its 9th Annual Mayor’s Ramadan Unity Dinner hosted by two Dems, Mayor Virg Bernero and Nathan Triplett, as Creeping Sharia reports.

Come for the 9/11 ambiance, stay for the party at an Islamic center affiliated with ISNA. As a bonus, you can meet its imam, Sohail Chaudhry, who became infamous for his run-in with Asra Nomani. She claimed that his former mosque had extremist elements.

ISNA was set up by the Muslim Brotherhood, which is the same organization that spawned Al Qaeda. It has extensive ties to terrorism. It’s the last place any patriotic American should be on 9/11.

Meanwhile over in Washington, the anniversary of the murder of thousands of Americans by Muslim terrorists means it’s time for some quality CAIR time.

A meeting aimed in part at helping Tri-City elected officials become better acquainted with the local Muslim community was planned Friday in West Richland.

The session also was meant to help Tri-City area Muslims become more engaged in government. Similar meetings will be held in the Tri-Cities in the future, with the next one planned for September.

When in September exactly? Funny you should ask.

The next meeting is Sept. 11 in Kennewick

And by “Muslim community”, they mean another Muslim Brotherhood terror-linked group.

They’re part of a initiative by the state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, a civil liberties and advocacy organization.

Here’s the kind of civil liberties and advocacy CAIR is best known for…

CAIR was co-founded in 1994 by Nihad Awad, Omar Ahmad, and Rafeeq Jaber, all of whom had close ties to the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was established by senior Hamas operative Mousa Abu Marzook and functioned as Hamas’ public relations and recruitment arm in the United States.

On February 2, 1995, U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White named CAIR Advisory Board member and New York imam Siraj Wahhaj as one of the “unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators” in Islamic Group leader Omar Abdel Rahman’s foiled plot to blow up numerous New York City monuments.

CAIR itself was named an unindicted coconspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror finance trial.

In October 1998, CAIR demanded the removal of a Los Angeles billboard describing Osama bin Laden as “the sworn enemy.” According to CAIR, this depiction was “offensive to Muslims.”

In 1998, CAIR denied bin Laden’s responsibility for the two al Qaeda bombings of American embassies in Africa. According to Ibrahim Hooper, the bombings resulted from “misunderstandings of both sides.”

This is the sort of folks that some politicians seem to think are appropriate company for 9/11.

Christian man killed by 3 Muslim immigrants in Maine

A judge on Monday unsealed the court documents of a grisly murder of a Christian man, allegedly at the hands of three Muslim immigrants in Portland, Maine.

In those documents, which had been sealed since the three men were charged Aug. 11, police said they found the brutally beaten body of Freddy Akoa lying on the living-room floor in his apartment. He was the victim of a savage attack that took place over several hours.

According to the autopsy report, he had cuts and bruises all over his body, with the fatal blows coming to his head.

Akoa, who had listed himself as a health-care professional on his LinkedIn page, had 22 rib fractures and a lacerated liver.

Akoa’s blood-splattered Bible was found lying next to his head.

The apartment was in disarray, with empty beer cans and trash strewn about, as though a party had come to an abrupt end at the onset of a physical altercation.

Akoa, 49, apparently knew his assailants, but police have not commented on the nature of their relationship.

He had been beaten and kicked in the head, and bashed in the head with a piece of furniture in an assault that continued relentlessly for hours, police said in the arrest affidavit.

But they were silent on what touched off the vicious attack.

Stop the Islamization of America! Get Pam Geller’s highly acclaimed guide to the resistance, and it’s autographed!

Could they have been drinking and then gotten into an argument over religion? Police wouldn’t say if the Bible was found open or closed, but its presence so close to the body leaves one to wonder.

A local detective refused to fill in any of the many blank holes in the story of Freddy Akoa’s death.

“I can’t go into any of the details,” Detective Rich Vogel of the Portland Police Department told WND. “I’m just not at liberty to give out any information about a case that’s subject to an ongoing investigation. Eventually the whole story will come out. It always does.”

Mohamed Mohamud, one of three suspects charged in the killing of Freddy Akoa in Portland, Maine.

Of the three Muslim assailants, at least two have common Somali names – Mohamud Mohamed, 36, and Osman Sheikh, 31. The third suspect is Abil Teshome, 23.

There were several other people in the apartment when the altercation broke out, Vogel told WND. But how many of them understood what was being said is in question, since the arrest affidavit states that the words being exchanged between Akoa and his assailants were not in English.Vogel also said he did not know the immigration status of the suspects.Osman Sheikh Said, 31, a Somali refugee who was resettled in Maine, is one of three suspects charged with the murder of 49-year-old Freddy Akoa.

All three of the suspects lived in the Portland area.

No mention of immigration status

Portland has been on the receiving end of a steady infusion of Somali refugees over the past 15 years, and Mohamed and Sheikh appear to have been part of that community, although no mention of their national origin has even been mentioned in the local media.

Apparently it’s a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy with regard to Somali refugees in Maine, said refugee watchdog Ann Corcoran.

The U.S. State Department, in cooperation with the United Nations high commissioner for refugees, has sent 1,379 Somali refugees to Maine since 2002, with 1,010 of them going to Portland, according to the State Department’s refugee database. Records prior to 2002 are not kept online, but the U.N. has been sending Somali refugees to the United States since the early 1990s with the full support of the U.S. Congress, despite the fact that hundreds of them have turned out to be jihadists or criminals.

The U.N. has sent more than 110,000 Somalis to U.S. cities and towns as “refugees” since the early 1990s. The largest Somali community in the U.S. lives in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region of Minnesota, which also happens to be the nation’s biggest hotbed of jihadist recruitment.

In April, U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger admitted “we have a terror recruitment problem in Minnesota” as he announced the arrests of six Somali men from Minneapolis who had repeatedly tried to board flights to Turkey where they planned to cross into Syria and join ISIS. Dozens of other Somalis have been arrested on terrorism-related charges, yet the U.S. State Department continues to import Somali refugees into the U.S. at a rate of 600 to 800 per month. Hundreds more are now coming from the jihadist capital of the world, Syria, even as persecuted Christians from that country are ignored by the Obama administration.

Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, introduced the Resettlement Accountability National Security Act on July 29 in the House, which would halt all refugee resettlements until Congress can get a handle on the program’s financial impact and the risks to national security. Babin is still looking for his first co-sponsor of the legislation.

Friendly party ends in tragedy

The three Portland assailants entered Akoa’s apartment about 4:40 p.m. on Aug. 9 and left about 5:30 a.m. on Aug. 10, according to surveillance video on the apartment building.

These details were made public for the first time Monday when a judge at the Cumberland County Courthouse unsealed an affidavit filed by Portland police Detective Christopher Giesecke to obtain an arrest warrant for three men accused in the killing, the Portland Press Herald reported.

The case documents had been sealed at a prosecutor’s request for one week after three accused killers appeared in court, each on a charge of murder by depraved indifference.

The arrest warrant affidavit explains how police first learned of Akoa’s death on Aug. 11, and how clues left in the apartment and video surveillance camera recordings quickly led detectives to interview a witness and take the three suspects into custody, the Press Herald reported.

Akoa’s mother, Jeannie Mendomo, became concerned after she couldn’t reach her son by phone and no one answered the door at his apartment. She called the building’s management company to check on him. Two of the company’s representatives used a key to go in the apartment after noon on Aug. 11 and found him dead on the floor with a swollen and bloodied face, Giesecke wrote in the affidavit.

Beneath Akoa’s body police found a document with Mohamed’s name on it.

Detectives found a purse in the apartment that lead them to a woman, Jennifer Wilson, who said she was there the night Akoa was beaten, Giesecke stated in court documents.

That afternoon, they found Wilson at the Preble Street Resource Center in Portland, and before they could ask her a single question, she asked them, “How is Freddy?” Giesecke wrote.

Wilson told police that three other men were present in the apartment and got into a fight with Akoa.

Wilson told police she and Akoa and the three men had all walked together to Akoa’s apartment on Aug. 9 after buying beer at a nearby store, according to the Press Herald report. She told them they had been drinking for only about 10 minutes before an argument broke out in a language that Wilson did not understand, according to the arrest affidavit.

Akoa was also an immigrant from Africa but not from a Muslim-dominated country. Comments left on his and his sister’s Facebook page after the attack indicate they were a Christian family.

Police later found Teshome, Mohamed and Sheikh in Deering Oaks park on the morning of Aug. 13 and arrested Teshome on a charge of criminal trespassing.

Teshome allegedly told Detective Richard Vogel in an interview at the Portland police station after his arrest that he had become angry at Akoa’s apartment and that he, Mohamed and Sheikh all took turns assaulting him. Again, no reason for the anger was given by Giesecke in the documents.

“Teshome said he lost control of himself and started hitting Akoa several times in the head. Teshome admitted to punching and kicking Akoa multiple times and knocking him to the ground. Teshome also stated that he also struck Akoa with his hands and feet while Akoa was lying on the ground,” Giesecke wrote.

Police say Teshome confessed that he used a board from a makeshift coffee table to beat Akoa over the head and to strike his foot.

“(Teshome) said that he and Sheikh left Akoa’s apartment around the same time and that he believed Akoa was alive when he left,” Giesecke wrote.

Video surveillance footage from the apartment building shows Wilson and Mohamed leaving the building at 5:38 a.m. on Aug. 10, but Teshome and Sheikh cannot be seen in the footage, the affidavit states.

Teshome, Mohamed and Sheikh are being held without bail at the Cumberland County Jail.

Building an Islamic State in America, One Church at a Time

sgh

Daniel Greenfield

Across Europe, thousands of churches have closed and many of them have become mosques. The St. Mark’s Cathedral in London survived Nazi bombers in WW2, but fell to a new invasion and became the New Peckham Mosque. In France, where there are now more Muslims than practicing Catholics, the Islamic colonists demanded that thousands of empty churches be turned into mosques. The Capernaum Church in Germany has become the Al-Nour Islamic Center. In Amsterdam, the St. Ignatius Church was transformed into the Fatih Camii Mosque. Its name means ‘The Conqueror’s Mosque’.

The original Fatih Camii Mosque had been built by the Turkish invaders in Constantinople on the site of the Church of the Holy Apostles. Like their ISIS descendants, the Turks drove out the Greek Christians, destroyed the church and replaced it with a mosque named after the monster Mehmed II, who inaugurated Islamic rule over the fallen city with slavery, rape and beheadings in the ISIS style.

Today ‘Conqueror’s Mosques’ have sprung up not only in Istanbul and Amsterdam, but in Paris, Toronto, Melbourne and Brooklyn, where within sight of the Statue of Liberty extending her torch of freedom to the oppressed of the world, stands the grim squalid outpost of the oppressor of the world.

Mehmed and the Statue of Liberty, the armies of Islam and our way of freedom cannot long coexist.

Islam is conquering Europe. It is also conquering America.

In Syracuse, New York, the Holy Trinity Catholic Church has become a mosque. Despite the church being protected by the Landmark Preservation Board, its crosses were cut down and painted over. After the Islamic terror attacks of September 11, no more planes flew into buildings. Instead they landed at airports disgorging a different sort of conquering army that came with visas instead of boxcutters.

In the decade after 9/11, the number of Muslims in Onondaga County more than doubled. A key role was played by Catholic Charities of Onondaga County, which could not find the money and energy to maintain a church into which generations of immigrations had poured their hopes and dreams, but which served as one of the VOLAGs (voluntary agencies) filling the area with UNHCR approved refugees.

75% of the “refugees” colonizing Syracuse are Muslim. Almost a thousand refugees a year are inflicted on the people of Syracuse who already live in the 23rd poorest city out of the 575 biggest cities in the country. Half the children of Syracuse live in poverty. But each refugee means a $725 check for the VOLAG. Last year that meant a $3 million grant for Catholic Charities.

And while VOLAGs like Catholic Charities cater to migrants, churches are turned into mosques. The North Side, where Catholic Charities has been active in its “charity work” is now full of women in hijabs and the Holy Trinity Church is no more.

Yusuf Soule, who bought the church, explained why he chose it. “The North Side is the magnet for refugees. The two agencies that work with refugees (InterFaith Works and Catholic Charities) are here.”

The more of these magnets we create, the fewer churches and synagogues there will be. Temple Beth El in Syracuse was hit by a Muslim terrorist who set fire to it while shouting, “I did this for you, Allah.”

No one had to set the Holy Trinity Church on fire. The Conference of Catholic Bishops took care of that.

Civilizations don’t fall because there are barbarians at the gate. There are barbarians at the gate because a dying civilization has lost touch with the values that made it great. The barbarians didn’t bring down Byzantium. They aren’t bringing down America and Europe. The barbarians of the prophet just show up to profit from the fall and we are the ones who open the gates and hand over the keys to our killers.

Islam is built on the bones of civilizations. Every Islamic mosque is a conqueror’s mosque.

The most thrilling experience for the new colonizers of the West is the taking of a church or a synagogue and transforming it into a mosque. While for the moment this has to be done legally, it is the closest thing to the ISIS experience that an Islamist can have in America or Europe without going to jail.

This tragedy isn’t only happening in Europe. As the events in Syracuse show, it is taking place right here.

And it isn’t only Catholic churches in New York that are falling victim to this new breed of immigrant Taliban demolishing the un-Islamic to make way for the Islamic.

Two Baptist churches in Louisville, Kentucky have been turned into mosques.

“On a trip to England a few years ago, I recall seeing dozens of churches that had become mosques and wondering how it could happen there; now it’s happening here,” Paul Chitwood, the executive director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, said.

Louisville has the misfortune of being a “preferred resettlement site” which makes it a major dumping ground. The Syrians are on their way courtesy of Islamic Relief USA and it already has 1,605 Somalis and plenty of Iraqis too.

Churches are being turned into mosques all across America. The Abundant Life Family Church in Nebraska is now the Sabah Mosque. St. John’s Catholic Church in Minneapolis became the Darul-Uloom Islamic Center. In Detroit, Our Lady Help of Christians Church fell to the Islamic Center of North Detroit.

Slowly and quietly, this is happening all across America as the Immigration Jihad uses taxpayer money to accomplish what Mohammed, Al Qaeda and ISIS could not. Al Qaeda can destroy our buildings, but only our government can import Muslim colonists who will take over them as bases for their ideology.

Back in Istanbul, Erdogan’s Islamist regime continues pressing to convert churches into mosques, completing the original work of the Caliphate before it was aborted by secular reformers.

Erdogan had made his agenda clear when he recited the Islamist poem proclaiming, “The minarets are our bayonets, the mosques are our barracks, the believers are our soldiers”. And so it has ever been.

The secular West is being swiftly Islamized. Vacant churches become mosques. The barracks of Islam fill with believers who batten on the hate and go out one day to behead a soldier or shoot up a recruiting office. Minarets hatefully thrust their bayonets at the sky warning of a larger war to come.

The Immigration Jihad is colonization plain and simple. It is a war of birth rates and beliefs. A West whose elites have lost their faith is unable to come to terms with the fact that the East has not. The mosques are not “additions to the community”, they are outposts of a hostile civilization whose faith is in the destruction of the West. ISIS or the Muslim torching a synagogue while crying, “I did this for you, Allah” are all part of one terrible arc of theological destruction.

In Mosul, the Syrian Orthodox Church of St Ephraim has been captured by ISIS and turned into a mosque. While we bemoan the barbarisms of ISIS, we are assembling its building blocks right here in our cities. Churches become mosques. Beheadings and horrible acts of terrorism take place monthly.

Our leaders refuse to put the pieces together. They refuse to understand what the flow of Muslim recruits from America to ISIS means and what the transformation of churches into barracks and bayonets means. They refuse to understand that they are helping to build an Islamic State in America.

Turkey’s religious body slams Star Wars cult

An article published by Turkey’s top religious authority warned of the spread of Jediism, a belief system affiliated with the Star Wars films, Hurriyet Daily News reported Monday.

The article, released in the monthly magazine of the Directorate of Religious Affairs’ (Diyanet), criticized Jediism and claimed that “thousands” around the world are identifying themselves as Jediis.

“Jediism … is spreading today in Christian societies. Around 70,000 people in Australia and 390,000 people in England currently define themselves as Jedis,” wrote Marmara University Assistant Professor Bilal Yorulmaz in the magazine.

The article by Yorulmaz comes months after “irreverent Turkish students raised their voices in online campaigns to build Jedi and Buddhist temples at their universities,” the newspaper reported.

Jediism, or beliefs adopted by the Jedi warriors in the Star Wars series, attracted public attention in 2001 when some fans decided to create their own faith and identified themselves as “Jedi.”

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s two-day visit in the UAE on Sunday came with several new projects in the emirates, including building Abu Dhabi’s first Hindu temple.

The Hindu place of worship would be the third in the country, first in Abu Dhabi. And while there were plenty excited about the announcement in the Muslim country, the hashtag “building a Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi” goes to show not everyone in the Gulf feels the same way.

Bangkok: Bombs Similar to Those Used by Iran Terrorists

Thai police investigate site of Bangkok bombing

New details have emerged in Thailand’s investigation of twin bombings in Bangkok on Monday and Tuesday which killed 20 people and left 125 more wounded, the Bangkok Post reported Wednesday.

According to Police Colonel Kamthon Ouicharoen, a bomb expert at the Metropolitan Police Bureau, the first bomb, which detonated near the Erawan shrine, was an improvised explosive device that looked like a model typically assembled abroad.

Assistant national police chief Prawut Thawornsiri said that an improvised pipe bomb was also used in the second attack at the Sathon pier. Thrown from the Taksin Bridge, it hit a pillar and fell into a canal where it detonated harmlessly.

Police Lieutenant Gen Prawut believes the bomber wanted to throw the device onto a busy walking platform, but missed. With a range of 30-50 meters, it had the capability to “inflict many casualties,” Kamthon added.

The police bomb squad also found a number of 5-millimeter-diameter ball bearings scattered around the area, similar to those used by Iranian terrorists discovered assembling a bomb in Soi Sukhumvit in 2012.

Sources close to the investigation say it is focusing on a revenge motive by Uigher terrorists in response to the Thai government’s deportation of Chinese Muslim migrants in July.

Top police officials as well as Thailand’s prime minister have, however, remained mum on the subject of motive, urging the media to report responsibly and avoid causing more panic.

“Whether this incident was motivated by domestic politics or an international issue, I don’t want to give you an opinion because it could mislead investigators and cause panic,” Gen Prawut said Tuesday.

Police did admit, though, that they are searching for a “Middle Eastern-looking man,” caught on a CCTV camera, who they are “more than 50% certain” was the bomber.

The footage shows a young, slightly built man wearing a yellow T-shirt, black-framed glasses and carrying a backpack. He is seen wandering around the shrine, sitting down, and leaving the area without his backpack.

Searches are being conducted in Nana sois 3 ,5, 9 and 11 – a neighborhood popular with Uigher migrants.
