Report: US Muslim Brotherhood Arm Paid for Mecca Trip of DNC Chief Wannabe Ellison

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

The House Ethics Committee in 2008 investigated Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Min), a practicing Muslim, for failing to disclose receiving funds from a Muslim-Brotherhood affiliated group to finance his 2008 pilgrimage to Mecca, the Washington Free Beacon reported Monday. Ellison is considered among the top finalists in the race to become the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

In 2008, the Muslim American Society paid $13,350 for Ellison’s 16-day haj (pilgrimage), on which he was joined by Asad Zaman, who sits on the MAS board. According to the Star Tribune, Ellison described the trip as a transformational personal experience, saying “I didn’t want to turn it into a politics thing.” But eight months or so later, Ellison faced a House Ethics Committee review of his concealing who financed his spiritual journey and how much it cost, seeing as it was considered a gift to a public official.

Ellison said he was not “privy to the internal workings of the organization” that paid to connect him with Allah. But Tax records show the Muslim American Society of Minnesota received close to $900,000 in taxpayer money in 2006 and 2007.

According to a 2004 Chicago Tribune article, Muslim American Society is another name for the US chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood. It was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 following “a contentious debate among Brotherhood members. Some wanted the Brotherhood to remain underground, while others thought a more public face would make the group more influential. Members from across the country drove to regional meeting sites to discuss the issue.”

According to Wikipedia, in November 2014, MAS was designated a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates.

MAS co-founder Jamal Balawi was listed among the “unindicted co-conspirators” in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation, which the US government designated as a terrorist organization, seized its assets, and closed it down. Following several years of trials, the founders of the organization were given sentences of between 15 and 65 years in prison for “funneling $12 million to Hamas.”

Balawi also endorsed “combative jihad” and suicide bombings, and publicly celebrated Hamas terrorists as “martyrs.”

A former MAS Communications Director, Randall Royer, was arrested in 2003 by federal agents and charged of conspiring with Lashkar-i-Taibi (Army of the Righteous), a Pakistani Wahhabi terrorist group to engage in terrorist operations in Chechnya, Kashmir and elsewhere. Royer was a member of the “Virginia Jihad Network,” a network of jihadists centered in North Virginia, and he acknowledged supporting several members of that circle to access Lashkar-i-Taibi training camps.

Also, a significant number of advertisers in the MAS publication The American Muslim, which often contain references to suicide bombings as martyr operations, were later uncovered by the US authorities a being involved in terror financing: Global Relief Foundation, which had its assets frozen in 2002 for providing funding to al-Qaeda; Kind Hearts for Charitable Humanitarian Development, which the US authorities qualified has “the progeny of Holy Land Foundation and Global Relief Foundation, which attempted to mask their support for terrorism behind the façade of charitable giving;” and Islamic African Relief Agency, now Islamic American Relief Agency (IARA), which the US Treasury qualified as a specially designated global terrorist organization for its support of Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda, and the Taliban in 2004.


Terrorist Shot Dead in Stabbing Attempt at Qalandiya Checkpoint

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

An Arab terrorist was shot to death after attempting to stab a security man at the Qalandiya checkpoint between Jerusalem and Ramallah, just west from the Jerusalem municipality boundary, on Tuesday morning. The man passed through the vehicles’ lane and approached the security guard with a raised knife. He was fired at and was mortally wounded. He died shortly thereafter.

There have been several incidents of stabbing attempts and shootings at the Qalandiya checkpoint since the beginning of the current wave of terror. Last month the prosecution closed for lack of evidence its case against security guards who shot to death a teenager and his pregnant sister at the Qalandiya checkpoint last April. Both brother and sister were armed with knives, and the sister threw her knife at one of the guards, following which both attackers were gunned down.

Dizengoff Terror Victim’s Family Refusing ‘Sulha’

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

On Saturday night we reported that the family of the Dizengoff terrorist, Nashat Melhem, from Wadi Ara, initiated a sulha, an Arab peace reconciliation agreement, with the family of Amin Shaaban, an Arab taxi driver the terrorist killed during Melhem’s escape, after his murderous attack on cvilians on Dizengoff Street. Following months of negotiations, the ceremony was planned for the coming Saturday, Nov. 19.

Now, according to a report on Israel’s Channel 10 News, the victim’s family is refusing to attend the sulha ceremony, protesting the fact that the reconciliation had been forced on them through the media. Abdullah Shaaban, a spokesman for the family, announced: “We will not conduct a sulha with the family of a terrorist.”

It should be noted that, should a Sulha not be reached, it could lead to a perpetual vendetta between the two clans, in which many will die — and then reach a sulha.

Terrorist Who Stabbed Soldier Gets 17.5 Years

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

The Nazareth District Court on Tuesday morning sentenced terrorist Tarek Yehia, 20, from Jenin, to 17 and a half years in prison for stabbing the soldier Dvir Peretz more than a year ago in Afula, causing him severe injuries. The prosecution had asked for 18 to 20 years.

The indictment against Yehia charged him with planning to kill a Jew and going on social networks to seek directions how to get to Afula. Yehia confessed to his interrogators that he decided to carry out a murder after having watched a video showing a Jewish settler cocking his gun and pointing it at an Arab woman.

Yehia then asked a resident of the Israeli-Arab city of Umm al-Fahm to drive him to Afula, claiming he had to get to a meeting there. The driver, 52, has been indicted for driving an illegal resident. After disembarking at the entrance to Afula, Yehia toured the place and sat down in a public park. There he saw his victim, Peretz, and stabbed him in his upper body.

Yehia continued stabbing the soldier even after the latter had collapsed to the ground. Passersby managed to get hold of the terrorist and controlled him until police arrived.

Terrorist Ambush Thwarted in Hebron

Saturday, November 5th, 2016

Security forces conducted extensive sweeps in Hebron following intelligence information received Friday evening regarding an explosive device that had been placed in an undisclosed location in the city.

Eventually a suspect was located, hiding in a local hotel, and during his interrogation he revealed the location of the explosive device – a gas tank connected to explosives and a mobile phone.

In his interrogation, the terrorist, reportedly a Jordanian national who arrived in Israel as a tourist, confessed that he had planned to throw a Molotov cocktail in order to attract the attention of security forces, and once they arrived at the place of ambush to turn on the explosive charge via the phone.

Following the 1995 Oslo Agreement and subsequent 1997 Hebron Agreement, Arab cities in Judea and Samaria were placed under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority, with the exception of Hebron, which was split into two sectors: H1 is controlled by the Palestinian Authority and H2 controlled by Israel.
