It only took one year after jihadist Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez murdered five U.S. service men for the FBI to find out that he had been radicalized for at least a year.
And that he purchased his guns after he was radicalized.
And according to the FBI, people around Abdulazeez “knew he was becoming radicalized before the attack, but failed to report.”
The FBI’s admission confirms:
that CAIR’s campaign to spread suspicion in Muslim communities about the FBI, is working;
that the TN American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) claim that its engagement with state law enforcement somehow “enhanc[es] security for all Tennesseans, is meaningless political noise
that Homeland Security’s “see something say something” has been cleverly undermined by Islamist’s success in sanitizing law enforcement training materials
that just like the neighbor of the San Bernadino jihadis, who saw suspicious activity but didn’t report it, fearing she would be called a racist.
that the red flags raised by state legislators like Rep. Judd Matheny and Sen. Bill Ketron as far back as 2011, have sadly, been validated.
In 2011, and again in 2015, Matheny and Ketron passed laws enhancing Tennessee’s anti-terrorism statute. Shortly after 9-11, most states passed anti-terrorism statutes to ensure that states could prosecute jihadists, if and when federal prosecutors refused.
Matheny recounts that in 2012 he met with Governor Haslam and “others” (Tennessee Department of Homeland Security personnel?) and told them that based on what he knew from both his law enforcement background and work on his anti-terrorism bill, that Tennessee could anticipate a jihadist attack.
Matheny and Ketron’s anti-terrorism material support bill was based on the murder of the Army recruiter in Little Rock by jihadist Carlos Bledsoe who was from Memphis. Carolos had attended a Nashville mosque and with the help from his imam in Nashville, was accepted at a Yemeni school which actually functioned as a training camp for terrorists. Carlos returned from Yemen fully radicalized.
Matheny says that he also warned the Governor “of possible financial activities in Tennessee that were funding Mid East and Tennessee based jihadist activities. Later I submitted to the governor’s office thoroughly researched and documented data of this.”
Haslam told Matheny to apologize to Muslims in Tennessee.
“Our Muslim Neighbor” in Tennessee – The Faith & Culture Center
Daoud Abudiab, founding board member and former chair of American Muslim Advisory Council(AMAC), is also the President and founder of the Tennessee Faith & Culture Center. Abudiab’s Faith & Culture Center has the singular agenda of creating a positive impression of Muslims through his “Our Muslim Neighbor (OMN)” project.
This project comes straight from Religions for Peace USA, an organization itself tied to Muslim Brotherhood organizations. Coming out of the closet in his own way, Abudiab joined the Muslim Brotherhood organizations at the USCMO conference in Washington.
Abudiab’s efforts are abetted by AMAC director Paul Galloway who is also the director of the (Muslim) American Center for Outreach (ACO). Both AMAC and ACO are partner organizations of Abudiab’s FCC.
“Chattanooga One Year Later, a Full Town Hall Roundtable”
You can watch the full video here where panelists Sheriff Hammond, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, Col. Wayne Rich and full-time Islamist propagandist AMAC/ACO director Paul Galloway discuss the Chattanooga jihad.
Col. Rich said that military recruiters are not any safer a year later.
What was Galloway’s contribution to the discussion? He admits there is a terror problem among Muslims, but not because of their religion. As a political propagandist, he understands that so long as he can keep the focus on Islam as a religion and not Islam as an ideology, he can invoke Islamophobia as needed.
He also says, “get to know your Muslim neighbor” and that “people shouldn’t be afraid of political correctness.”
In other words, you need to know your Muslim neighbor, because unlike members of the Muslim community who have remained silent, you may have to be the one who has to report problematic behavior.
And we’ll remind Galloway about what he said regarding political correctness the next time Islamist activists in Tennessee try to bully questioners into silence.
So go ahead and take Abudiab and Galloway’s directive – ask your Muslim Neighbor if they’re holding back on members of their community like jihadist Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez.
You’ll feel so much safer for it.
Last week’s jihad at the Istanbul airport killed more than 40 people and wounded 147.
The March 2016 jihad at Brussel’s Zaventem Airport which, along with an almost simultaneous attack on a rush-hour metro station, killed close to 30 people and wounded at least 271.
These are just the big ones news outlets have reported. There have been plenty more planned but foiled attacks.
And don’t forget about the dead Somali ISIS fighter Abdirahmaan Muhumed. He worked at the Minneapolis airport cleaning planes where the security clearances required by this job gave him access to the tarmac and other secured areas of the airport.
In 2010 during the prosecution in Nashville of the Somali sex-trafficking case, it was discovered that three of the defendants had a brother who was employed by an airplane maintenance company at the Nashville airport. He was able to bypass all security and took one of the defendants into restricted airport areas including the cockpit of a plane.
Two days after Istanbul, CIA director John Brennan warned, “[i]f anybody here believes the U.S. homeland is hermetically sealed and that (ISIS) would not consider that, I would guard against it.”
Once again, security measures for U.S. airports are being reviewed. Will that include the absurd, special treatment TSA provides for Islamist travelers, particularly those wearing a burka or hijab?
CAIR reminds Muslim women who wear a hijab that if they are selected for secondary screening, they can ask that it be done in a private room or “instead of the pat-down, you can always request to pat down your own scarf, including head and neck area, and have the officers perform a chemical swipe of your hands.”
Note that CAIR lawyer Zahra Billoo says “the flag of Islam is our women who wear hijab.” The TSA certainly wouldn’t want to desecrate the flag of Islam, would they?
So while non-Muslims are busy undressing in the airport in the name of security, TSA and our government is contorting the rules to accommodate political sharia supremacists… like this one at the Nashville airport just a few months ago:
Feel safer now?
The First Amendment protects our freedom of religion and speech. Does our Constitution also protect preaching the duty of jihad to Muslims?
The certified English translation of codified Islamic sharia law is “Reliance of the Traveller, the Classic Manual of Sacred Islamic Law.” The compilation was authenticated by both the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) and Al Ahzar University in Cairo, the preeminent teaching center of sharia law.
Islamic sharia law says that both the greater and lesser jihad are mandatory for believers. Islamists call violent jihad the “lesser jihad” and the spiritual struggle the “greater jihad.” But according to the Reliance of the Traveller, Section o9.0 the discussion of “jihad” begins this way:
“Jihad means to war against non-Muslims and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion…”
“Details concerning jihad are found in the accounts of the military expeditions of the Prophet…,including his own martial forays and those on which he dispatched others. o9.0
Sharia law imposes a communal obligation regarding this “lesser jihad” recounting that “[i]n the time of the Prophet jihad was a communal obligation after his emigration (hijra) to Medina.” (o9.1). Is the law’s emphasis on the violent jihad because it was Mohammed’s violent Medinian jihad (the offensive jihad), that helped spread Islam? Is it because every Muslim has a religious duty to convert “non-believers” either by persuasion or force?
If Mohammed is the perfect Muslim that all Muslims are to emulate and an imam in a mosque preaches jihad and a worshipper then commits jihad, is the imam’s speech protected religious speech or speech that incites violence which may not be protected by our constitution? For example:
former Islamic Center of Tennessee Imam Abdullah al Ansari directed his listeners (at 5:12), that “He [Allah] told us to fight the Jews and Christians. Fight them until they give jizya. They give this protective tax from their hands and they are humiliated and subdued. If Islam, true Islam and true Muslims do not rule there will never be justice.” (almost word for word Koran 9:29; Reliance o9.8 – Objectives of Jihad p.602
Boston Imam Abdullah Faarooq exhorted the listening worshippers that “[y]ou must grab on to this rope, grab on to the typewriter, grab on to the shovel, grab on to the gun and the sword, don’t be afraid to step out into this world and do your job.”
In 2009, the FBI estimated that “Imams preach jihad and extremism in 10 percent of the 2,000 mosques in the United States.” A 2011 random survey of 100 mosques by the Terrorism Research Initiative, found that 80% of the mosques preached jihad either through sermons and/or materials.
The California based Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) issues fatwas,(authoritative religious rulings that guide Muslims living in the West) on issues such as condoning death for apostates, marital rape and female genital mutilation. AMJA also hosts an annual Imams training conference.
Regarding the instigation of offensive jihad in America, an AMJA fatwa translated from Arabic states that “the Islamic community does not possess the strength to engage in offensive jihad at this time. With our current capabilities, we are aspiring towards defensive jihad, and to improve our position with regards to jurisprudence at this stage. But there is a different discussion for each situation. Allah Almighty knows best.”
Memphis Imam Yasir Qadhi is a frequent speaker at the AMJA imams training conference. Shaykh Waleed Basyouni, the vice-president of Qadhi’s AlMaghrib Institute, is also on the AMJA fatwa committee.
Sayyid Qutb, a a “leading theorist of violent jihad” and Muslim Brotherhood “intellectual godfather,” promoted offensive/violent jihad to establish Islam’s supremacy over infidels and all other religions. The mosques attended by the Chattanooga jihadist and the one attended by the Boston marathon jihad bombers are both owned by a Muslim Brotherhood organization.
In Incitement in the Mosques: Testing the Limits of Free Speech and Religious Liberty, University of Baltimore Law professor Kenneth Lasson explains that according to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Brandenberg case on free speech, “…the government could limit speech that is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action that is likely to incite or produce such action.”
He notes that the First Amendment does not protect what he calls “camouflaged incitement” – “…language that can be considered coded speech, guns for hire, inducement by simulation or supplying how-to plans are all suspect.” He suggests that clerics deliver sermons with the intent to “encourage action… Religion moves followers to act on their beliefs.”
Bill Warner’s “Statistical Islam” shows that 98% of the Hadith and roughly three-quarters of the Sira’s references are to jihad of the sword (the “lesser jihad”).
So, against the backdrop of violent jihad like 9-11, the Boston marathon bombings, the Chattanooga murders, the Fort Hood killing spree, the murder of Pvt. Andrew Long by Abdulhakim Mohammed, is it incitement to violence when imams read from the Quran, the Sira and Hadith, and claim that Mohammed is the example for all Muslims to follow? Or press believers to follow Islamic sharia law? So, how close in time does the violent jihad have to be to be considered “imminent”? And last but not least, should these imams be protected by the First Amendment if they preach the religious duty of the “lesser” jihad?
Law professor Kenneth Lasson gives a pragmatic answer: “[t]errorism creates a kind of permanent imminence. When messages advocating murderous violence are heard by large numbers of people, the government should have the authority to stop the speakers. There is no democratic value in protecting clerics who exhort their listeners to kill Jews and Americans wherever you can find them.”
Imams in Tennessee are trained in Middle Eastern countries that impose sharia law. A quarter of a million migrants from Muslim-majority countries are allowed to immigrate to the U.S. annually.
Sharia is Islamic law. The leftist Huffington Post explains: “[t]here are two sources of Shariah: The Quran, which many Muslims consider to be the literal word of God; and the ‘Sunnah,’ the divinely guided tradition of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.”
The English translation of sharia law called “The Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law,” (on-line and posted in the Documents tab above), has been authenticated by Al Ahzar University, the preeminent teaching center of sharia law.
An Egyptian imam says that husbands disciplining Muslim wives are following Muhammad’s example:
“A good woman, even if beaten by her husband, puts her hand in his and says: ‘I will not rest until you are pleased with me.’ This is how the Prophet Muhammad taught his women to be.”
Section o17.4 of the sharia law manual says that a husband may punish a wife who refuses to have sex with him:
“A husband is entitled to discipline his wife for not giving him his rights [to sex]”
Section m10.12 of the sharia law manual says that hitting is for the “rebellious” wife:
“…answers him coldly when she used to do so politely, or he asks her to come to bed and she refuses, contrary to her usual habit; or whether in acts, as when he finds her averse to him when she was previously kind and cheerful…”
“If she commits rebelliousness, he keeps from sleeping (O: and having sex) with her without words, and may hit her, but not in a way that injures her, meaning he may not (A: bruise her,) break bones, wound her, or cause blood to flow.”
In this video, the former President of Al Ahzar University who is also the former Mufti of Egypt says the West has tried to use the issue of sharia wife beating to stop the popular spread of Islamic culture. He explains wife beating:
“By Allah, even if only one woman out of a million can be reformed by light beatings… It’s not really beating, it’s more like punching… It’s like shoving or poking her. That’s what it is.”
“Honor” the highest priority in U.S. Muslim communities?
A 2015 study commissioned by the U.S. Department of Justice identified four types of honor violence – forced marriages, honor-based domestic violence, honor killing, and female genital mutilation. The report found that “in North America, 91 percent of victims were murdered for being ‘too westernized’” and, that “fathers were involved 100 percent of the time when the daughter victim was 18 years or younger.”
A 2000 national survey by the North American Council of Muslim Women confirmed that domestic violence occurs in at least 10% of Muslim homes which is comparable to national demographics. But the survey documented that Muslim women face cultural barriers like family honor that prevented them from seeking help. The Peaceful Families Project, looking at domestic abuse in U.S. Muslim communities published data including:
- 51% of 1324 pregnant Pakistani women and 60.6% of 1800 Iranian women suffered, verbal, physical or sexual abuse prior to and/or during their pregnancies
- 6% of 2677 Bengali women ages 13-40 experienced domestic violence
- 41% of 190 Muslim women suffered either verbal, emotional, physical and sexual abuse
So when political Islamists in the U.S. tell us that Muslims living here are different than the ones “over there,” does that include the ones from “over there” who are now living here?
The next time the open border/illegal immigration advocates over at TIRRC (TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition) call you unwelcoming, remind them that illegal immigrants are lawbreakers. Tell them there is no such thing as a “law-biding” illegal immigrant. Tell them that using the term “illegal alien” is the correct term that is used in our statutes to identify people who are nationals of other countries and who enter the U.S. illegally. Illegal alien is the definition of someone who breaks our immigration laws.
Tell them that our immigration laws do not refer to “undocumented immigrants.” Tell them you know there are plenty of fraudulent ways for illegal aliens to get “documents.” That still doesn’t make them legal inside the U.S. according to our law.
The next time the Islamic sharia law adherent board members of AMAC (American Muslim Advisory Council) call you xenophobic because you are concerned about taking more Muslim refugees, remind them that their own board member and founder, Drost Kokoye says this:
Since being an American isn’t good enough for Drost, remind her that her Kurdish homeland needs fighters and will even take those that do little more than talk the talk.
Here’s what Drost says about the country that welcomed her and her family and has given them the freedoms they never had:
The next time Paul “Iesa” Galloway, director of the ACO (American Center for Outreach) claims the Islamists are the real victims, remind him that we know he is CAIR’s Muslim Brotherhood mouthpiece in Tennessee, and that CAIR supports the Muslim Brotherhood’s terrorist arm HAMAS. Tell him we don’t want his Islamic sharia law here.
The next time you question paying federal refugee contractors to bring in American-hating sharia-adherents who use our freedoms to subvert the very system of government that gives them that freedom, think about Paris as an example to justify your concerns.
Or the fact that Islamic supremacist Memphis Imam Yasir Qadhi says he is actively counseling youths who are sympathetic to ISIS, to turn away. Of course he doesn’t want to be blamed if they don’t listen to him – like his former student turned terrorist, convicted Christmas Day bomber, Daniel Maldonado. Or maybe Qadhi is concerned about the fact that his media company used to sell recordings by al-Qaeda terrorist Anwar Awalaki.
And where does Yasir Qadhi’s loyalty lie?
Qadhi says, “we are loyal to our countries insofar as it does not interfere with our religion of Islam.”
Are these citizens of the United States of America or citizens loyal to Islam?
Is Nashville “Music City, USA” or “Little Kurdistan” – you decide.
Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said the needs of “new Americans” were a top priority, so he established the city’s Office of New Americans:
“The number of foreign-born residents in Nashville has more than doubled over the past decade. And today our city is the proud home of the nation’s largest Kurdish population, as well as growing enclaves of immigrants from Somalia, Sudan and all over the world.”
Mayor Dean refers to the two out of three groups that have brought political Islam and sharia law to Nashville; Kurds and Somalis. They have been brought to Nashville through the federal refugee resettlement program.
Immigrants – turned – advocates talk about “Nashville for all of us” but instead choose to live like the Mayor’s office said, in enclaves. They complain about being treated as “the other,” but through self-segregation, guard against assimilating into and adapting to the American culture.
When they self-segregate its called preserving their culture. When native-born Tennesseans self-segregate, it’s called racism.
Kurdish Islamist agitator Remziya Suleyman whines endlessly about being thought of as “the other.” However, she was quick to appropriate Nashville’s generous spirit for her community’s political purposes, calling it “Little Kurdistan.”
Drost Kokoye, an activist Nashville’s Kurdish activist community, is known for her Jew-hatred and pro-Hamas politics. She worked in Suleyman’s organization, TIRRC, the ACLU and helped establish and is a board member of the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC). She’s now at UTKnoxville where she agitates with the Muslim Students Association (MSA) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), and has led pro-Ferguson rallies.
Ironically, Drost’s mother is a Parent Ambassador to new immigrant families as part of Mayor Dean’s Office for New Americans, even while her daughter Drost doesn’t want to be called a “new American” or even an “American.”
Enclaves in Tennessee?
Early on, the federal policy for resettling refugees advised scattering them across the country as a way to disperse the impact on receiving communities. In 1981 the federal government reversed this practice and instead started placing refugees of similar ethnic groups in the same area. Today, migration patterns upon arrival in the U.S. either for jobs, welfare benefits or to join an established ethnic community, help fuel the growth of the enclaves described by Mayor Dean.
There are enclaves like the Muslims of American (MoA) compound in Stewart County, Tennessee.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security says Muslims of America (MoA) is linked to the Jamaat ul-Fuqra Pakistani militant group.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) describes MoA as “virulently anti-Semitic,” attributed also with anti-Christian and anti-American rhetoric and tied to “a terrorist organization that has carried out firebombings and murders in the United States.”
There is also evidence of enclaves in the U.S. governed by sharia law.
Importing sharia law and terrorism into the U.S. via Islamic enclaves
According to a Pew Research survey,, “the estimated share of legal Muslim immigrants entering the U.S. each year has roughly doubled, from about 5 percent of legal immigrants in 1992 to about 10 percent in 2012.” The Obama administration has helped accelerate this increase. Legal immigration in the form of refugee resettlement contributes to this growth.
A 2012 poll found that 40% of Muslims living in the U.S. want to be governed by sharia law and 32% want sharia to govern all Americans. Almost half surveyed said “Americans who offer criticism or parodies of Islam should face criminal charges,” while “one in eight” called instead for the death penalty.
Where will this take our Nation?
Because of the U.S. refugee resettlement and asylum program, and Washington’s refusal to stop importing people from terror-sponsoring countries, we have experienced the Boston marathon bombing, the Portland Christmas tree bombing threat, and the New York Times Square bomb threat, to name a few.
How did two Iraqi refugees get to Kentucky when their fingerprints were on an IED that killed five soldiers in Iraq? Because our security screening is lax two jihadis and their radical Islamist ideology, were brought to the U.S. as refugees. Watch the video clip about the case.
In December 2013, liberal California Democrat Sen. Diane Feinstein spoke about the Islamic terrorist threat to the U.S.. She acknowledged that there is a, “real displaced aggression in this very fundamentalist jihadist Islamic community, and that is that the West is responsible for everything that goes wrong and that the only thing that’s going to solve this is Islamic sharia law and the concept of the caliphate.”
Sen. Feinstein suggests a connection between jihadists and sharia law.
The Tie Between Minneapolis and Nashville – “Little Mogadishu”
The vast majority of Somalis living in the U.S. have been brought by federal contractors paid by the U.S. refugee resettlement program; 9,000 in 2014 and over 2,800 so far in 2015.
The Cedar-Riverside neighborhood in Minneapolis is called “Little Mogadishu” because it has the largest concentration of Somali Muslims living in the U.S. In August 2014, mainstream media also referred to it as “fertile ground for Islamic terrorist groups recruiting new fighters.” The report cited at least 40 residents who went to fight with ISIS, a pattern similar to the Minneapolis Somalis who joined al-Shabaab in 2013.
The Somali community complained to the Secretary of Home Land Security that their young men had no jobs, nor training or economic opportunity or “an appropriate place to live.” This is why they became “disillusioned and influenced by terrorist organizations” and then leave to go fight with ISIS.
How does this explain the FBI’s newest “Most Wanted Terrorist” a Somali who became a naturalized U.S. citizen through the refugee resettlement program. He drove a taxi cab in D.C. and Virginia while he was recruiting for terrorists.
So, the Obama administration agreed to spend millions of dollars for job training and after-school activities.
The Somali enclave Mayor Dean admires comes with a Somali gang problem. This also connects Minneapolis and Nashville in ways the Mayor likely never envisioned as the price his city would pay for its Somali enclave. Part of Somali gang activity includes human sex trafficking and prostitution. The largest Somali sex trafficking ring which operated out of Minneapolis, Nashville and few other cities, was prosecuted in the federal courthouse in Nashville.
“Little Kurdistan” – Another Nashville Islamist Enclave
Since 2007, federal contractors have been paid to bring approximately 200,000 Iraqis to the U.S.. Catholic Charities brought the first Kurds to Nashville in 1976. They were joined by some Iranian Kurds and then Kurds fleeing Saddam Hussein’s regime.
Between refugee resettlement and “secondary migration” (resettling in one place and moving to another), Nashville has the largest Kurdish community in the U.S. The number is estimated at about 11,000. Their mosque is the Salahadeen Center.
Programs like Nashville Public Television’s series titled “Next Door Neighbors,” just like the “Welcome to Shelbyville” detailing the arrival of Somalis to the town, go to great lengths to characterize these refugees as “hardworking and grateful” to be in this country.
In 2007, the Kurdish Pride Gang (KPG) which grew out of the Nashville refugee Kurdish enclave, shined a different spotlight on the Kurdish community. Police described gang members as “increasingly vicious and brazen.” Gang experts warn that gangs made up of people that come from war-torn countries pose a “unique problem” because they are desensitized to violence and dismissive of authority.
As of 2012, Metro police used a new tactic to break the KPG gang. A judge ruled the gang a public nuisance and issued an injunction that prevents the gang from gathering together in public places.
What the propaganda pieces don’t disclose is that most of the pro-Islamist activism has been initiated and led by members of the Nashville Kurdish community actively abetted by Nashville’s Somali community.
For example, shortly after launching the American Center for Outreach (ACO), Remziya Suleyman aligned her organization with Muslim Brotherhood CAIR. Suleyman brought CAIR to Nashville to train young Muslims in advocating for political Islam. She mentors them in leading a sharia-adherent lifestyle despite admitting “she never knew the concept of sharia.” She has ceded leadership of ACO to former CAIR-Houston director, Paul “Iesa” Galloway.
ACO’s Civic Engagement Coordinator, Drost Kokoye, another member from the Kurdish community helped start the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) and to organize and lead anti-Israel rallies in Nashville. Kurdish Islamist Jihan Abdullah worked for ACO, while her sister Kasar, serves on the AMAC board.
Can Mayor Karl Dean explain again why we should be excited about these enclaves in Nashville?
Also known as identity politics for Muslims:
So here’s what this Kurdish Muslim is saying:
Vote for Aljabbary because he is one of us, a Kurd. It doesn’t matter what he says he will or won’t do. Once he is elected he will ALWAYS put Muslim needs first. He has to because that is what Allah commands him to do and he is a very observant Muslim. Otherwise he would not have been the president of his mosque.
We don’t care whether he will represent anyone else that lives in our district. Catholic Charities brought us Kurds to Nashville and we want more of us here. Aljabbary has lots of experience in refugee resettlement, and if, elected, he could help bring more of us! This is how we will have the kind of political power we still don’t have in our real homeland. Besides, we are commanded to bring this political jihad to the West.
