Jihad? Saudi National Goes on Murder Spree at Florida Naval Base

Surely you’ve seen the news, but what interested me most this morning is that the usual major news sources, even Fox News, have very few details.  So, why is it that we have to go to the UK Daily Mail (again!) to get more.

And, I want to know who the victims are!  Some of our finest young men and women?

Six Saudis are arrested over Pensacola naval base shooting including three who FILMED the attack by countryman who killed three and wounded eight before being shot dead – as FBI probes terror link

The Daily Mail generally includes a very handy list of bullet points like these!

~Shooting took place on base early Friday morning, sparking a lockdown

~Sources identified the suspected gunman as Saudi Air Force aviation student Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani

~As of Friday evening, six Saudi nationals have been detained for questioning
It’s reported that three of them filmed the shooting as it happened

~Rep Matt Gaetz, a Republican representing Pensacola, called the shooting ‘an act of terrorism’

~President Trump tweeted that King Salman told him ‘the Saudi people are greatly angered by the barbaric actions of the shooter…’

~Three other people were shot and killed during incident inside classroom building on base

Read the whole story, but here are a few additional snips, plus a photo the Daily Mail says is the shooter.

In recent weeks, 18 naval aviators and two aircrew members from the Royal Saudi Naval Forces were training with the US Navy, including at Pensacola, according to a November 15 press release from the Navy. It was not clear if the suspected shooter was part of that delegation.

The delegation came under a Navy program that offers training to US allies, known as the Naval Education and Training Security Assistance Field Activity.

A person familiar with the program said that Saudi Air Force officers selected for military training in the United States are intensely vetted by both countries.  [We are so stupid, they are skilled liars!—ed]

Amazing how we didn’t learn anything from 911.  We don’t need to invite any Saudis to America, let alone to train them to fly.

And, for goodness sake, this attack happened on a Navy base, but it required local police to take out the shooter.  Why aren’t there armed Navy men and women protecting the base? (While dreadful people like Mohammed obviously carry guns on base!)

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.

Writer: Fraud-ridden and Dangerous Diversity Visa Lottery Must be Abolished

Editor: I’ve been away.  I took part in a panel discussion over the weekend about internet censorship and explained how wordpressdotcom removed Refugee Resettlement Watch without notice after nearly 12 years of reporting there. 

I’m telling you this to explain why you haven’t seen any new posts here for a few days.  

Also, there is so much news breaking on the refugee front that I have focused my time over at the newly reconstructed Refugee Resettlement Watch. Click here to see the latest news on the President’s refugee numbers for fiscal year 2020.

Now to the Diversity Visa Lottery

Wow! Check out his piece by Amil Imani at American Thinker!

Abolish the Diversity Visa Lottery

The Diversity Visa Lottery, also known as (the Green Card Lottery) is an immigration program by which immigrants from nations with usually low rates of immigration to the United States are able to apply for a visa online. The platform, however, has been used by terrorists to penetrate America.

On October 31, 2017, Sayfullo Saipov used a rental pickup truck to deliberately mow down pedestrians. After killing eight and injuring 13, he left the truck and shouted, “Allahu Akbar.” Sayfullo is an Uzbekistan national and came to America in 2010. Later officials found a note about his allegiance to ISIS. This attack immediately received worldwide reaction from other lawmakers including the US. A bill proposed in August that would slash legal immigration levels in half over a decade also would eliminate the lottery program.

The bill went to the House and overwhelmingly passed, but halted in the Senate. Each year, the Diversity Visa Program accepts 50,000 randomly selected people — only from countries that don’t send many immigrants to the United States — to obtain permanent residency (commonly called a “green card”). It’s a way for individuals and families who otherwise wouldn’t have any way to legally immigrate to the United States to get a green card.

The program is often seen as one that should be ended in a shift toward a more merit-based system. According to Heritage Foundation: “It does not bolster the skills of the American workforce, nor does it reunite families or serve any humanitarian function. Its only purpose is to increase ethnic and cultural heterogeneity in the U.S. — a dubious goal that weakens the social ties within communities.”

The diversity lottery has been an unwise policy since its inception in 1986, this program. This program is a dangerous gamble. Many Muslims who arrive in America, are deeply indoctrinated by Islamic credos and find it impossible to assimilate into host countries. In fact, their leaders and Imams encourage them to stay away from the American people and only stay within their own community. Hypocrisy is a Muslim trait while they strive to impose their own defunct 7th century barbaric ideology — which is the cause of their own misery — on the host nation.

Both America’s political parties are guilty of keeping much of the U.S. population in the dark about Islam’s mission in the U.S.

[….]

President Trump is 100% correct in his campaign to completely abolish this bogus “Diversity Visa Program.” Critics argue that the program is susceptible to fraud and manipulation, and that identity fraud is endemic. Critics also assert that the program poses a danger to national security.

Much, much more here.

Somali Terrorist Trial to Begin in Canada; Many Questions that Likely Will Never be Asked

This morning I happened to catch a bit of a news story at Fox News, maybe you saw it!

Fox may end up being the only US major media outlet to cover the shocking news about the global travels of a Somali extremist that ended with him being arrested in Canada for an Islamic terrorist attack as a ‘new Canadian.’

The Center for Immigration Studies has been dogging the case and created a very cool map that tracks the alleged terrorists movement from Africa to South America, then to our US border and on into (diversity is our strength!) Canada.

How did he do it (surely he was helped along the way!), and for me the vital question seemingly never asked, so therefore never answered—where did he get the money for his movement across the globe?

From CIS (author Todd Bensman was on Fox this morning):

Many who have professionally worried, as did former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, that violent jihadists might illegally cross the United States’ southern border are often challenged with this: “Name a single U.S. border-crossing immigrant asylum-seeker who ever committed a terrorist attack.”

Introducing Abdulahi Hasan Sharif of Somalia.

In 2011, Sharif had himself smuggled from Somalia through Brazil and Central America. Then he entered the United States over the Mexico-California border and claimed asylum. Sharif went on to Canada, where he allegedly conducted a double vehicle-ramming and stabbing rampage in 2017 in Edmonton, Alberta, that severely injured a police officer and four other people. He was carrying an Islamic State flag in one of the ramming vehicles.

That border-crossing Sharif is now on trial in Canada. Not a single corporate American media outlet has written a story about him, either on his trial, his unique place in history as a terrorist who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border, or what America needs to learn about this case to improve border security.

Read it all here.

I’ve said this many times, but the President should be specifically highlighting cases like this one that demonstrate our dangerous southern border when he speaks to his huge rally audiences.

Below is a screenshot showing Sharif’s travel from Somalia to Canada—half way around the world!  See the interactive map by clicking here.

Sharif entered the US during the Obama Administration in 2011 and was released. He entered Canada in 2012 and was granted refugee status.

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.

Lawyer: “By all accounts he’s a kind, shy, caring young kid who’s living with his family.”  https://nypost.com/2019/08/30/teen-who-plotted-isis-knife-attack-planned-to-escape-on-his-scooter-prosecutors/

 

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.
