Aurora, CO: (another) whiny story, this time about Somali girls who wanted to join ISIS

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 30, 2014

Are you as sick to death of stories like this one as I am where we hear about disenfranchised Somali youths who have to be saved from leaving the good life in America to join Jihadists somewhere in the world.

Think of the amount of resources (tax payer dollars) going into the FBI outreach to the “Somali community” in Colorado right now in hopes of thwarting the next wannabe ISIS member.

And, in addition we get one more public relations opportunity for the “Somali community” to put on their victimhood act.

I say, let them go, but revoke their passports and don’t let them back into America to potentially hurt someone here.

What benefit will these angry (dumb!) Somali girls be to America?

See the ‘Girls jihadi quest stirs muslim communities fear‘ AP story at US News and World Report:

AURORA, Colo. (AP) — The strange journey of three suburban Denver girls who authorities say tried to join Islamic State militants in Syria has many in their close-knit east African community worried about whether their own children will be the next to be lured to terror.

The girls’ voyage has mystified many in the U.S., and has been even more troubling among Aurora’s Somali and Sudanese immigrants, thousands of whom fled civil war and forged new lives in the Denver suburbs, where refugees easily find jobs driving cabs or working in the meat industry.*** [LOL! it just occurred to me that these Somalis may be in Aurora thanks to the premier federal refugee contractor and supplier of cheap immigrant labor for the meat packing industry in Colorado---Lutheran Family Services I just wrote about yesterday.---ed]

But while the girls’ parents were working to give them a better life, being a Muslim teenager isn’t easy in an American high school, said Ahmed Odowaay, a community advocate who works with youth. It’s easy to feel like an outsider, even as a U.S. citizen.

Even his 10-year-old daughter gets taunts of “terrorist” when she wears her hijab in school, he said.  [how do we know this is true?---ed]

Read it all, here.

***I hope some day to find out exactly how BIG MEAT works with the refugee contractors and the US State Department to get their immigrant (refugee) laborers. Is it an overt deal between the feds and the meat industry or more of a wink and a nod?  In 2008, we did find direct evidence of the role played by the Clinton Administration in bringing in Bosnian (Muslim) ‘refugee’ labor for the Iowa meat packers, here, but I would like to find something more recent.

UK will NOT join EU in plan to rescue migrants in Mediterranean Sea

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 29, 2014

‘Invasion of Europe’ news…..

They say that Italy’s huge effort (soon to end) to rescue the ‘boat people’ illegal migrants trying to reach Europe from North Africa has created a “pull factor.”  No kidding!

 

Having followed this issue for years, I never dreamed I would see the day when some European country would have the guts to tell this important truth!

And, remember American readers, we have created a “pull factor” by taking illegal migrants who reach Malta to the US as refugees!

From SBS.News:

Britain says it won’t join an EU program to help rescue refugees and migrants sailing across the Mediterranean, expressing sentiments that echo the policy on ‘maritime arrivals’ adopted in Australia.

[....]

Asked recently in the House of Lords what naval or air-sea rescue contribution the British government would make to the refugee crisis in the Mediterranean, foreign minister Baroness Anelay replied:

“We do not support planned search and rescue operations in the Mediterranean. We believe that they create an unintended ‘pull factor’, encouraging more migrants to attempt the dangerous sea crossing and thereby leading to more tragic and unnecessary deaths.”

The ‘humanitarian industrial complex’ has reacted with not-unexpected rage!

But refugee advocates have reacted with anger to the British government’s refusal to take part in future search operations in the Mediterranean.

“The British government seems oblivious to the fact that the world is in the grip of the greatest refugee crisis since the Second World War,” Maurice Wren, chief executive of British Refugee Council said in a statement.

So what is their answer—MORE legal immigration!

“The answer isn’t to build the walls of fortress Europe higher, it’s to provide more safe and legal channels for people to access protection.”

See our ‘invasion of Europe’ series here.  And, if you have time, see our seven years of stories about the mess we have created for Malta.  We took 531 of Malta’s illegal aliens to the US in FY2014!  (See that there were 434 cases and 531 individuals admitted, that means most were single adults.)

Some Somali young man who got on a boat in North Africa (probably Libya) is now being cared for with your tax dollars in your town.

Kentucky: Convicted Iraqi refugee terrorist wants chance to withdraw guilty plea

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 27, 2014

Longtime readers may remember the case of two Iraqi refugees resettled in Senator Rand Paul’s hometown of Bowling Green (see our extensive coverage of the diversity jungle created by resettlement contractors that is B.G. today by clicking here).

Mohanad Shareef Hammadi

We covered the arrest and trial of the Iraqi pair over the years (go here for an archive on the case).

Perhaps one of the most shocking revelations, and evidence of very shoddy processing of refugees, was the fact that at least one of the Iraqi’s fingerprints was found on fragments of an IED that killed American National Guard troops.

Here is the latest from Kentucky.com thanks to reader Robin:

— An Iraqi man convicted in a Kentucky terrorism case has asked a federal judge to give him access to his complete case file so he can try to withdraw his guilty plea.

U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Russell had not ruled on the request from 26-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi as of Friday morning.

Hammadi and 33-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan pleaded guilty in 2010 and 2011 to taking part in a plot to ship thousands of dollars in cash, machine guns, rifles, grenades and shoulder-fired missiles from Bowling Green, Kentucky, to al-Qaida in Iraq in 2010 and 2011. The pair was working with an FBI informant who squelched their plans.

Alwan is serving a 40-year sentence and Hammadi are serving a life sentence at a maximum security prison in Florence, Colorado.

In a letter to his court-appointed attorney that was filed in the court record, Hammadi said he wanted to review the records to file motions to attack his guilty plea before the statute of limitations runs out.

By the way, I would love to see the US State Department made responsible for legal fees incurred by the refugees they let in to the country.  And, just imagine what this pair’s incarceration will cost the US taxpayer for the next forty plus years!  So much for refugees bringing economic benefits—these two imprisoned refugees will likely offset the small economic benefit of thousands and thousands of non-criminal refugees.

And, don’t forget, right now Iraqis are the top group of refugees we are resettling in your towns and cities, here.

For ambitious readers, we have a huge category on Iraqi refugees, here, with 635 previous posts!

Number of “Islamic extremists” grows in Germany

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 26, 2014

German Interior Minister, Hans-Georg Maassen. So if they know this, why take in the tens of thousands of Muslims being admitted to Germany right now?

And, gee I wonder out of what population they are springing?

See our two recent posts on Germany here and here about the country being swamped by Muslim migrants.

German authorities at least have the good sense to call them ‘Islamic extremists’ and not ‘violent extremists.’

From the Associated Press:

BERLIN (AP) — The number of Islamic extremists in Germany is growing rapidly, the head of the country’s domestic intelligence agency said Saturday.

The agency estimates that some 6,300 people in Germany are adherents of an ultraconservative strain of Islam known as Salafism, Hans-Georg Maassen told public broadcaster rbb-Inforadio. In Germany, all Salafis are considered Islamic extremists and on the radar of the security services, though other groups are also monitored if they are determined to be a threat to the state or democratic order.

Maassen said the number of Salafis could rise to 7,000 by the end of the year, compared to about 3,800 three years ago.

Interesting is that he uses the broad term ‘Salafis’ or Salafism instead of what the US authorities often do—tell us it is Al Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, ISIS etc. which only further distances the discussion from the root cause of Islamist violence—the ideology itself!

Let me say though that the greater threat to Germany, the US and the West generally (in my view) is the Muslim demographic time bomb— slower, but more deadly in the long-run than terrorists here or there.

Somali example of why federal ‘countering violent extremism’ theory is all wet (and dangerous)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 26, 2014

One of the country’s preeminent experts on the Islamist agenda in America, Patrick Poole, in a recent PJ Media post tells us why the federal “lone wolf” extremist concept is bogus and highlights a case he was personally familiar with involving Somali Dahir Gurey in Columbus, Ohio during the height of the Al-Shabaab recruitment of Somali refugees in America.

Poole: Feds are counting on the “good Islamists” to report on and counter the “bad Islamists.” Photo: http://theunitedwest.org/learning-center/security-briefing-overview/

For background see at least this post from 2008, here at RRW where you will see that the recruitment issue was covered fairly widely but never really broke into the national consciousness as has the recent ISIS recruitment in the US.

I think the final number of Somali refugees who joined Al-Shabaab, thumbing their noses at the good life in America you gave them, was in the 20s (or at least that is the number the feds actually found evidence of).

Here is Poole at PJ Media (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum).  ‘Lone Wolf,’ or ‘Known Wolf’? The Ongoing Counter-Terrorism Failure:

CVE (countering violent extremism) has been a colossal disaster because it has no roots in reality. It was always intended as a convenient fiction for politicians, bureaucrats, media and academics to avoid talking about the problem of the ideology that supports Islamic terrorism.

There has never once been a recorded case of anyone on the planet swearing their allegiance to the ideology of “violent extremism” and their willingness to kill others and die in the cause of “violent extremism.” It is a null set. There is nothing to counter, which is the whole point. And yet there are academics and institutions who are the beneficiaries of mountains of taxpayer cash to pursue the elusive CVE unicorn.

[....]

One crackpot theory has been that there are good Islamists that we can use against the bad Islamists. This was the keystone of the Obama administration’s Arab Spring policies. And this theory put into practice in Egypt, Libya, Syria and other places has left the Middle East in even worse shape than Obama found it.

Poole’s personal report from Columbus, Ohio about Somali refugee Dahir Gurey:

I’ve seen this “known wolf” problem work first-hand.

When the problem of terror recruitment amongst the U.S. Somali community by al-Shabaab became an issue in 2008 and 2009, there were reports in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio, which has the second largest Somali population in the country, that al-Shabaab operative Dahir Gurey was fundraising and recruiting for the terrorist group in the area. He later showed up in Minneapolis.

When we told the FBI about it, the response was that our information couldn’t be accurate, because if it were true they would have heard about it from their local Muslim outreach partners.

Fast forward 18 months: Dahir Gurey was killed in a firefight in Mogadishu operating as a senior al-Shabaab commander. As I reported at the time, local FBI officials had publicly said that there was no known terrorist recruitment in the Columbus area just a week before Gurey’s death. He was featured last year in a recent al-Shabaab recruitment video targeting American recruits. But it’s doubtful our FBI office subsequently asked their Muslim outreach “partners” about it.

Read it all.

In 2009 we attended a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing on the recruitment issue and were shocked at the naivety demonstrated by Senators Lieberman and Collins.

And for your information: We have admitted 9,000 Somalis to the US in FY2014 which ended on September 30th. 

That makes this year one of the ‘best’ years for Somalis since the Bush years of 2004, 2005 and 2006, here.

Update October 27th:  See also Columbus, Ohio mosques mushrooming, here.

In Berlin, “Ich heisse Mohammed”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 25, 2014

Invasion of Europe continues…..

Syrian refugee Mohammed (another Mohammed) with child in makeshift shelter in unused Berlin school. http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/afp/2014/10/syria-unrest-germany-refugees-aid.html#

Yesterday we told you about Munich (Bavaria) in the south of Germany and today there is news about ‘refugee’-swamped Berlin.

This news from The News gives a good description of how a Syrian family paid a human trafficker to get them across the Mediterranean to Sicily and from there made their way northward to Germany.

Remember the EU has a law that says asylum seekers must apply in the first country they get to in Europe, but obviously flaunting any EU laws, many sneak out of Italy or Malta or Greece and move on to the more “welcoming” countries of Germany or Sweden.

BERLIN: Syrian refugees are bedding down in the converted classrooms of a former Berlin high school as Germany grapples with being Europe’s number-one destination for asylum seekers.

Among the newcomers is Mohammed Nabil, 28, who after a perilous land and sea journey now shares a small and immaculate if improvised bedroom with his mother, brother and sister in a working class district of the German capital.

[....]

Germany this year expects some 200,000 asylum seekers to cross its borders — or nearly 60 percent more than in 2013 when numbers had already soared by almost two-thirds.  [When Mark Steyn wrote America Alone (2006) before the Syrian conflict, I suspect even he didn't see how fast his prediction would come true.  You can be sure that the Syrians will never be asked to leave Germany---ed]

The leading country of origin is Syria, where over three years of bloody fighting have driven more than two million people to flee, mostly to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq.

[....]

Germany, Europe’s most populous country, received more than 20,000 applications for political asylum from Syrians between January and August, a 186-percent leap from a year earlier.

[....]

Once in Sicily, the family decided to press on for Germany, where they arrived just over two months ago. They spent their first night in Berlin in a park, then went to a police station to ask for help.

Nabil now spends his time working on his German language skills, writing out in a large exercise book phrases such as “Wie heisst Du?” (What’s your name?) and “Ich heisse Mohammed” (My name is Mohammed).

See our complete ‘invasion of Europe’ archive by clicking here.  Type ‘Germany’ or ‘Sweden’ into our search function for extensive archives on those two countries as well.

By the way, if you haven’t read Mark Steyn’s America Alone pick it up and get Al-Hijra, the Islamic Doctrine of Immigration while you are at it.

Canada: Humanitarian groups ask government to immediately allow 10,000 Syrian refugees to settle there

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 24, 2014

Pretty rotten timing for this demand wouldn’t you say?

Alazem wants an explanation of why Canada is dragging its feet. Gee, let me guess!

Just what Canada needs right now—to welcome 10,000 Muslims in at this time.  Granted the Islamic killers Canada has had to deal with over the last week are “home grown,”  I’m thinking the average Canadian citizen is fed up with everything ‘Islam’ and is saying WTH to this latest from the humanitarian industrial complex. [Update:  sort of home grown!]

By the way, most Syrian refugees being resettled around the world right now are Sunni Muslims from UN run camps.

From UNHCR News of course:

Humanitarian groups want Immigration Minister Chris Alexander to immediately let 10,000 Syrian refugees settle here and they want an explanation why the Canadian government is dragging its feet when it comes to resettling Syrians.

In 2013, Ottawa promised to admit 1,300 Syrian refugees yet the groups say only 200 people have been accepted into Canada, said Faisal Alazem, a Syrian-Canadian with the humanitarian group the Union of Syrian Medical Relief Organizations. The union helps set up field hospitals inside Syria.

Every time they ask Ottawa for precise numbers on how many Syrians have been let in, they get the runaround, said Alazem,

“There is never a clear answer. There are always answers that deflect you. We hear a lot that Canada prides itself in hosting one in every 10 (world) refugees. But our estimate is that there are not more than 200 Syrian refugees here, so far,” he said, referring to the 2013 promise.

Read it all (but you won’t find the words Christian Syrians if that is what you are looking for).

Denver refugee offspring (Somalis and Sudanese) caught in Germany trying to reach ISIS

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 22, 2014

Ho hum…. so what else is new!

This story is all over the news, so other than for me to acknowledge the latest case of refugees thumbing their noses at the good life in America (paid for by you, the taxpayer) and still wanting to join the Jihad, here is one version of the story from ABC.  If you see more detailed stories, send the link as a comment.

If you type ‘Somali missing youths’ into our search window, you will get upwards of 100 posts (going back as far as 2008) on this same topic—Somali refugees off to learn the Jihad trade.

UNHCR: Europe has to take more Syrian refugees; rich Arab countries not criticized

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2014

Speaking in the United Arab Emirates (of all places), Socialist UN High Commissioner for Refugees admonishes European nations (again)—allow more Syrian refugees into your countries!

UN High Commissioner for Refugees Guterres never demands that rich Arab countries take in their fellow Muslim refugees!

From the Associated Press:

SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates (AP) – The head of the United Nations refugee agency on Wednesday urged countries, particularly in Europe, to review their laws to allow entry to more Syrians fleeing their country’s civil war.

Antonio Guterres said on the sidelines of a conference in the United Arab Emirates that a refugee crisis across the Middle East is a global security threat. He urged more legal avenues for Syrian refugees to resettle in Europe, and avoid risking their lives with smugglers.

“This is not only the worst humanitarian crisis in the last decades, it is also the biggest threat to regional peace and security,” he said. “It’s a global threat.”

Blah, Blah, Blah…

Then near the end.  Remember that some wealthy Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, TAKE NO REFUGEES:

The conference was hosted by Sharjah ruler Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi and his wife Sheikha Jawaher.

The United Arab Emirates, along with the five other energy-rich nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council, have been criticized by rights groups for not opening their borders to refugees from the myriad of conflicts across the region.

Guterres said he is calling on all countries, everywhere, to do more.   [Maybe, but it is Europe, the US, Canada and Australia he chastises on a regular basis!---ed]

Is Guterres too chicken or is his goal to help spread the Muslim population worldwide?

End note:  RRW will be taking a break beginning today after we post a few more stories.  Be back on October 20th and will be able to post your comments then.

Swedes seek out alternative media to read about one thing: immigration!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 16, 2014

Here is more proof for my case that Sweden will be the first socialist ‘heaven’ to fall under the weight of needy migrant hordes—mostly Muslim migrants!

I’ve noticed here, even at tiny RRW, that we get more visitors reading about Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands or the UK than we often do about some juicy American news.  A blogger friend once told me that the reason for that is that the European press hardly touches the verboten topic.

From Dispatch International (hat tip: FatherJon):

Jimmy Åkesson leader of the Sweden Democrats needs police protection because he dares to speak about Swedish immigration policy. Photo: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/sep/09/guardian-view-on-swedish-elections

The Englishman Iain Channing returns to Sweden, the country he lived in during the 1980s. What has happened to the safe and well ordered country that was so admired throughout the world? Do people really appreciate the politicians’ radical experiment in social engineering? And what about Malmö – Sweden’s preeminent test tube?

To understand how things have reached this pass—when an ordinary working class guy resorts to a self-censorship gesture used in communist countries—you only need to read the Swedish press. Mass immigration is not quite a taboo, but all criticism of it is censored, distorted or demonized. An almost daily barrage of hate and slander is directed at the Sweden Democrats (SD), the anti-immigration party that is now shaking up Sweden’s cosy coalition-based politics. “SD are trying to delude the working class.” “SD are still racists!” “How far to the right will [SD leader] Jimmy Åkesson go?”

Every single newspaper story I read about SD in a month in Sweden—and there were a lot, because its rise (to 10 percent in the polls) has become a real headache for the establishment—was negative and often littered with childish, abusive epithets originating in World War II. In such an environment, the party does not list an address on its website, and its three top leaders require police protection.

Channing goes on to discuss how Swedes are finding alternative media for their news on the issue that they are most concerned about…

It is all about immigration, immigration, immigration!

….the issue of immigration will not go away. On the contrary, the unmentionable topic has become a national obsession. According to columnist Hakelius, “[people who send me letters now] are interested in one thing: immigration. The discussion can begin wherever it likes, but it always ends with immigration. Immigration, immigration, immigration, immigration, immigration.”

Read it all, and then check out our extensive archive on Sweden.  One of our top posts of all time is this one (photo link seems to be gone now).
