ISIS to its Followers: Cause the West Pain by Setting Forests Ablaze

This news from Fox News yesterday reminded me of a reader at Refugee Resettlement Watch who sent me information and stories to post for probably a year or so.

She (I think the tipster was a she!) told me how important fire is as a weapon of jihad as she often found stories about mysterious fires, not just forest fires, that she identified as linked to an Islamic imperative—to wage jihad.

I haven’t heard from her for about five years, but her admonitions about fire jihad stuck with me.

Here is Fox News:

ISIS encouraging followers to set wildfires in forests, fields of US, Europe

 

 

The Islamic State terror group may have recently lost its leader, but a media outlet affiliated with the group is urging followers to continue to literally set ablaze new paths of terror and destruction.

At least four propaganda posters have appeared in recent months from the pro-ISIS media outlet Quraysh Media that have encouraged followers to “ignite fires” of their own, literally setting wildfires in the U.S. and Europe as a means of “waging jihad,” according to the Middle East Media Research Institute.

MEMRI, which tracks communications of radical groups, said the first poster in the series was published in April.

“Oh monotheists [followers of ISIS], ignite fires in the forests and fields, and we are addressing especially those who live in Europe and America, for they are painful to them,” the poster read, according to MEMRI.

[….]

“Ignite fires in the forests of America, France, Britain and Germany, for they are painful to them,” the text reads, according to MEMRI.

It would be pretty darn easy!  And, even if authorities suspected that type of arson, they would likely keep it from us and blame global warming instead.

Diversity Visa Lottery Winner was ISIS Sniper Feds Say

John Binder writing at Breitbart spotted the news last week, see here.

Also, visit my previous post on Ruslan Maratovich Asainov here.

Alleged ISIS Sniper Indicted, Came to U.S. on ‘Visa Lottery’ from Kazakhstan

An alleged sniper for the Islamic State (ISIS) has been indicted, the Department of Justice announced on Thursday, years after he was able to obtain American citizenship by arriving in the United States on the “Diversity Visa Lottery.”

Another ‘new American’ terrorist?

Ruslan Maratovich Asainov, 43-years-old, was indicted in federal court on five counts of conspiracy to provide material support to ISIS; providing personnel, training, expert advice, assistance, and weapons to ISIS and ISIS fighters; as well as receiving military training from ISIS fighters.

Asainov, according to federal prosecutors, traveled to Istanbul, Turkey in December 2013 with the intention of going on to Syria to fight for ISIS. After arriving in Syria, Asainov is accused of joining ISIS by becoming a sniper for the terrorist organization.

While sniping for ISIS, Asainov moved up the ranks within the terrorist organization and was put in charge of training newcomer ISIS fighters. Asainov is also accused of trying to recruit other terrorist sympathizers living in the U.S. to travel to Syria to fight for ISIS.

jackpot

Asainov’s traveling to Syria to allegedly snipe for ISIS came 14 years after he was first allowed to legally immigrate to the U.S. through the Diversity Visa Lottery program — which randomly gives out about 55,000 visas every year to foreign nationals from a multitude of countries, including those with known terrorist problems such as Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, and Uzbekistan.

[….]

Since 2005, Breitbart News reported, more than half a million foreign nationals have come to the U.S. by randomly winning the Visa Lottery, bringing with them a chain migration of five million foreign nationals since 1994, according to researchers at the Center for Immigration Studies.

New York (again!): Pakistani-born Teen Charged with Providing Material Support to ISIS

We welcomed another ‘new American’ who wants to kill us!

Planned a knife attack at a local Dunkin’ Donuts!

And, what is up with Queens and Islamists?

See my post yesterday about two Muslim women in Queens planning attacks on their fellow Americans, now this “kid,” as his lawyer describes him, had similar plans.

You may have seen the story last Friday, but just in case!

From the New York Post:

Teen who plotted ‘ISIS knife attack’ planned to escape on his scooter: prosecutors

 

A reclusive, braces-wearing teen who lived behind a white picket fence with his devout Muslim family was secretly an ISIS sympathizer — and was plotting to launch a knife attack at a Dunkin’ Donuts and other targets near his Queens home, the feds alleged Friday.

chadhury
Awais Chudhary, 19.  I wonder, did he know the women who plead guilty last week in Queens?  

His getaway vehicle of choice? A Razor scooter, federal prosecutors in Brooklyn say.

Awais Chudhary, 19, planned to strike at the Dunkin’ just blocks from his East Elmhurst home, and was also targeting pedestrian bridges over the Grand Central Parkway to the Flushing Bay Promenade and the World’s Fair Marina, prosecutors said in court papers.

Chudhary had texted back and forth with two undercover agents he believed were ISIS terrorists, sharing his attack plans and telling them that he’d pledged his allegiance to the terror organization, the feds said.

At one point, he allegedly sent one agent an ISIS diagram of the human body that he’d found online, showing where best to plunge a knife into a victim, the feds said.

He also allegedly asked for guidance on constructing a small “bucket bomb,” which he hoped to fling from an overpass onto vehicle traffic below.

[….]

Chudhary was arrested in Queens on Thursday as he tried to pick up items he’d ordered online for his attacks: a tactical knife, a mask and a special wearable strap to hold a cellphone he’d hoped to use to livestream the carnage, the feds said.

The wiry, bearded teen was ordered held without bail at his Brooklyn federal court arraignment Friday on charges of providing material support to a terrorist organization.

Unbelievable, his lawyer downplays his alleged attack plans by saying it was only a Dunkin Donuts he was targeting!

“This is not something where he’s masterminding something in the subway or Times Square. He’s looking at a Dunkin Donuts,” his court-appointed lawyer, Samuel Jacobson, argued in asking that bail be set at $100,000.

The plot was just a “fantasy,” the lawyer insisted.

[….]

“By all accounts he’s a kind, shy, caring young kid who’s living with his family.”

By the way, we don’t admit huge numbers of Pakistanis as refugees, so I always wonder how did we get so many.  Which legal avenue are they accessing to get here in such large numbers?

There is a detailed recitation of the case against him, here at the US Justice Department.

 

 

Update on the Arizona Somali Refugees Arrested for Supporting ISIS

I told you about Ahmed Mahad Mohamed, 21, and Abdi Yemani Hussein, 20,  here and here, but I hadn’t seen this news—-they were hitting the gym to get stronger for the beheadings they were planning.

Katie Pavlich had this short extra bit of news when the story broke (thanks to Cathy for sending it).

Don’t miss my post yesterday about 167 Jewish groups want 95,000 more refugees (Somalis included!) delivered to Anytown, USA starting on October first!

From Townhall:

Somali Refugees Living in Tucson Started Hitting the Gym to Get Stronger…for Beheadings

According to the indictment the two men, Ahmed Mahad Mohamed and Abdi Yemani Hussein, started hitting the gym in order to get stronger so they could easily perform beheadings.

“On or about June 26, 2019, MOHAMED told the UC (undercover FBI agent) that he and ‘abu’ jihad started going to the gym so they could get stronger and ‘behad those kuffar,'” the indictment states. “MOHAMED indicated that he wanted to make hijrah and asked for help from the UC. MOHAMED state that he was ‘a lion bu killing the kuffar and behading.’ In addition, MOHAMED told the UC, ‘if I go to Syria I want to be the behading person wallahi this kuffar I want to kill them so many I am thirsty their blood.’ MOHAMED indicated he wanted to travel to Syria, Egypt and/or Iraq.”

How many more refugees are out there with dreams of beheading the kuffar?  

And, gee, in addition to paying for their initial resettlement to the US (did we, taxpayers, pay for the gym membership too?) we get to pay for their trials and incarcerations!  See my next post!

Trump Tweets about Somali Refugees Arrested in Arizona

This morning I wanted to see whether the news of two days ago about Somali refugees being arrested in Arizona as they tried to board a plane for Egypt in order to join ISIS had reached the mainstream media.
Apparently other than a mention on Fox News that got the President’s attention and mentions on some Washington DC publications, the story is not getting much national coverage.
Did the Washington Post mention the news? Nope.  How about The New York Times? Nope again.
But I do see it mentioned on Yahoo Entertainment with this headline. LMHO!
The story is about Trump and his tweets!

 

Trump tweets arrests of Somali ISIS sympathizers in Arizona: ‘Get smart people!’

 

President Trump on Tuesday used the megaphone that is his Twitter feed to draw attention to the arrest of two Somali refugees in Arizona who authorities say were planning to travel from Tucson to Egypt to join the Islamic State.

Screenshot (1051)
This is why the mainstream media hates Trump, he gets the news out that they don’t want to report.

 
Ahmed Mahad Mohamed, 21, and Abdi Yemani Hussein, 20, were charged with providing support to a terror group. They were arrested Friday at Tucson International Airport.
According to federal authorities, Mohamed had told an undercover FBI agent during social media exchanges that he was “thirsty” for the blood of disbelievers and that “the best wake up call is [for the] Islamic State to get victory or another 911.”
The president also tagged “Fox & Friends,” typically an indication that the tweet was responding to a segment on his favorite cable news morning show.  [Maybe the Prez watches Fox because it reports on news like this!—ed]
The indictment did not indicate that the two men had committed any acts of violence in the United States.

That last line is the Left’s go-to position on any refugee terrorist charge.  Well they didn’t kill any Americans yet!  Duh! Because law enforcement nabbed them before they could!
By the way, this pair of Islamic refugee terrorists most likely got into the US during the Obama era.
It’s a very good thing that Trump has his Twitter “megaphone.”  Shame the mainstream media!  Keep ’em coming!
