Pataki: Westerners Need to be Alert for Terror Attacks

Pataki: Westerners Need to be Alert for Terror Attacks By Melissa Clyne

New York City, and the west, are at a greater risk of terrorist attacks than any time since 9/11 and the citizens and the government need to take heed, former Republican New York Gov. George Pataki said Monday on “America’s Forum” on Newsmax TV.

“We just see this global network of extreme Islamic groups committed to attacking us and our citizens anywhere in the world,” he said. “We’ve had a porous border and ISIS is well funded and if they choose or have chosen to fund people coming across the border of this country they may well be here.

“As to the specific actions the city and state are taking to protect the subways, all I can say is that when I was governor, whenever we had a general awareness of a heightened risk, we would enhance security and I have to believe that the NYPD is tremendous, the New York state emergency response and state police are tremendous and that they are taking the appropriate steps. I no longer can tell you specifically what they’re doing but I know they’re very good, I know they’re aware of this threat, and I have no reason not to believe that they’re doing what’s appropriate.”

He’s hopeful that the complacency Americans may have been lulled into before the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) and the “barbaric treatment of westerners” has been extinguished.

“The threat of al-Qaida is not gone, the threat of Islamic extremism is very real and very present,” Pataki said. “They want to target westerners and Americans so I would hope that since we’ve seen that, the American people would understand that we can’t go back to a Sept. 10 mentality. This is a serious effort to kill Americans, kill westerners, and disrupt our way of life and we have to deal with it. We can’t simply enjoy the luxury of saying we’re an ocean away. We’re not, this is global.”

Pataki had strong words for President Barack Obama and his plans to trim the military.

“How can this president talk about continuing to wind down our military, scale back our military when the global threat, the immediate threat of Islamic terrorism and the long-term challenge of Chinese military nationalism are very real? We need to turn that around and start rebuilding our military and not dismantling it.”

If reports that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has scaled back the NYPD’s counter-terrorism intelligence unit, that is also cause for great concern, according to Pataki.

“Intelligence is the key,” Pataki said. “We don’t want to respond to a crisis. We want to prevent an attack in the first place and to do that, proactive intelligence gathering and policing is critical and if those reports are accurate, that the NYPD intelligence monitoring and gathering has been scaled back, then that is something that is horribly wrong and increases the risk.”

De Blasio “more than appears to lean far left, I think he is far left,” according to Pataki who said he is also worried about reports that de Blasio doesn’t have security clearance from the government “due to some of his prior actions.”

“The idea that the mayor can’t be briefed on the latest intelligence as to security threats is enormously troubling to me,” he said.

Pataki noted that he follows politics and public policy closely but said he’d refrain from commenting on whether he plans to seek the White House in 2016. With all that’s going on in the world, Pataki said he’s very interested in participating “in some way in trying to change the direction of the country and give us confidence and optimism about the future.

“This is America. Every one of us should believe that tomorrow’s going to be better, that our kids are going to have better lives and sadly today too many Americans don’t feel that. So we’ll see what happens, but on speculating about possible candidacies, we’ll see down the road.”


Peter King: Obama ‘Dropped the Ball’ on ISIS, Blames ‘Everyone But Himself’ By Sandy Fitzgerald

President Barack Obama “dropped the ball” on the Islamic State (ISIS) and now he’s “trying to blame everyone but himself,” New York Republican Rep. Peter King charged Monday, saying the intelligence community and lawmakers have known for months how dangerous the extremists are.

“A real leader, a true leader, does not blame other people,” King told told NBC’s Luke Russert on Monday’s “The Daily Rundown,” of Obama’s statements Sunday that the ISIS threat had been underestimated.

“We’ve known for over a year how dangerous ISIS was,” King, a member of the House Intelligence and Homeland Security committees said. “In fact, (Lt. Gen. Michael) Flynn from the Defense (Intelligence) Agency testified we should expect an offensive by ISIS.”

Flynn’s testimony was made in February, before the Senate Armed Services Committee, reports Business Insider. It came four months before ISIS’ made its major offensive in northern Iraq, taking massive gains.

In his remarks, Flynn said ISIS would “probably will attempt to take territory in Iraq and Syria to exhibit its strength in 2014.” The terrorist organization would likely be helped “by itsability to concurrently maintain multiple safe havens in Syria.”

Flynn also warned that after U.S. troops were pulled out of Iraq at the end of 2011, ISIS had “exploited the permissive security environment to increase its operations and presence in many locations and has also expanded into Syria and Lebanon to inflame tensions throughout the region.”

King on Monday told Russert that Obama should not blame the intelligence community because it was “very concerned about ISIS.”

He admitted that nobody could have known the full threat of the militants’ actions, but the intelligence community was concerned that ISIS was “a real threat.”

On Sunday, Obama told “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft that “the United States underestimated the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria also acknowledged the Iraqi army’s inability to successfully tackle the threat.”

But King insisted that from his role on the Homeland Security committee, he knew about the ISIS threat in 2013.

“Then throughout fall and certainly of January in this year, we knew ISIS was a real threat,” King said. “Then in February, Fallujah fell. We had a six or seven month lead-up to this.”

But months later, in July and August, “the president was acting as if he just heard about (ISIS).”

Even in a worst-case scenario, said King, the United States did not know about ISIS until the fall of Fallujah in February, “that’s seven months ago.”

And the president had “all this time to work out a plan, to try to line up a coalition,” King said. “Instead, instead, he didn’t. (Like) last year with Syria, he threatened air strikes and didn’t follow through.”

Meanwhile, King believes “someone” has to put troops on the ground in the fight against ISIS.

“We have almost 2,000 troops on the ground as it is,” pointed out King. “We are going to have to use special forces in some ways. We’ll have to have spotters on the ground.”

Further, King said Americans will have to be embedded with the Iraqi army to coordinate movements with the Kurds and provide leadership.

But Obama is “trying to pass it off,” King said.

“If Isis is a threat to the United States security, then we can’t say it’s up to Iraq to defend the United States … cutting off your nose to spite your face or if Iraq doesn’t do the job.”

The United States will be the ones attacked, as “we should only be in there if it affects the U.S.,” said King. “If it doesn’t affect the U.S., we have to be willing to do whatever it is we have to do.”

Obama also “dropped the ball” when it came to Syria, King said Monday. Two years ago, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former CIA director Gen. David Petraeus, and former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta urged the United States to train and arm the Free Syrian Army, he pointed out.

Obama “was saying people just wanted us to throw guns and weapons towards them,” but that was a false claim, said King.

“Are you really saying that Hillary Clinton and Panetta are willing to just give guns to anyone?, said King. “The fact is, the president dropped the ball. He dropped it in Syria, he dropped it with Isis. Now he’s trying to blame everyone but himself.”

Meanwhile, King said that if House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, reconvenes the House to vote on airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq and Syria, he would “definitely vote to authorize the strikes” himself.

However, he does not believe Congress should get “bogged down in a long debate and undermine what the president’s trying to do.”

Unless Obama believes there would be a solid majority of votes and he and Boehner can work a vote out, King thinks “it would be counterproductive to come back at this stage.”

“You may have some guys trying to cover themselves in the election, and that could send a wrong signal to the world,” King continued.

Police are investigating the beheading of a woman at an Oklahoma company by a Muslim man who had been trying to convert co-workers to Islam after recently converting himself, according to a local TV news report.

Police in Moore, Oklahoma, said Thursday the suspect, Alton Nolen, who had been fired from his job at a food processing plant, attacked a woman with a knife and beheaded her, KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City reported. He then attacked another employee and was stopped when he was shot and wounded by the company owner.

According to a local newspaper, the McCurtain Gazette, “a close family member” said Nolen had been telling co-workers about an “Islamic teaching that said women should be stoned for an offense,” and an argument ensued, after which Nolen was reportedly fired.

Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said the 30-year-old suspect “stabbed Colleen Hufford, 54, severing her head.”

Mark Vaughan, a former CEO of the business, was being praised for shooting the suspect after the man allegedly attacked the second worker, Traci Johnson, 43, with the same knife.

According to an AP report, Lewis said Vaughn was “a hero in this situation.”

“It could have gotten a lot worse.”

The attack “has been described as an incident of workplace violence,” reported.

What do YOU think? Sound off on Oklahoma beheading labeled ‘workplace violence’

Investigators said the FBI was looking into Nolen’s background after his former co-workers said he tried to convert them to Islam after recently converting himself.

A statement from Vaughan Foods said: “On behalf of everyone at Vaughan Foods, we are shocked and deeply saddened by the events of today. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of the team member we lost and all those affected. Our focus is on the safety and well-being of our employees. We will provide counseling and support for our team members and support each other through this difficult time. We are working with authorities on this active investigation and ask that you direct your questions to local law enforcement.”

The 9-1-1 tapes recorded gunshots as callers reported the stabbing.

The dispatcher told responding officers, “Units responding to Vaughan Foods, be advised we do now have gunshots.”

On his Facebook page, which features photos of Taliban jihadists, Nolen calls himself “Jah’Keem Yisrael.” He posted photos of himself wearing Muslim religious garb and reading the Quran.


Just a week before the beheading, on Sept. 18, he posted the following message on Facebook:


On his “about Jah’keem” page, he writes the following message, which has been edited for punctuation: “FB, I’m [going to] tell you off [the] top, I’m not your friend. My friends are at the mosque [sic] all around the world. About me: I’m a Muslim from the Tribe of Judah who was pretty much raised in Killeen, Texas. My ancestors, who are the true Jews here in America today, are originally from Israel. They were bombed outta Israel by the Roman Catholic army, so they fled Egypt and the Afrikans sold us to the white man as slaves, along with any other black person here in Amerika today, aka the true Jews from Israel. …”

Next to a photo of Pope Benedict XVI, he wrote, “SHARIA LAW IS COMING!!!!”

Beheadings by Muslims have been in the news in recent weeks. ISIS jihadists in Iraq and Syria have beheaded four victims, including two American journalists.

 At the Spectator in the U.K., Douglas Murray commented that one part of the reason Muslim jihadists choose beheading,” if not the major part – is the fact that the Quran has verses telling believers, in certain circumstances, that this is the appropriate way to kill those who are not Muslim.”

“Is this not an important point? What about the fact that the founder of Islam himself engaged in such acts? There will be those who say I am making this up, so I suppose I ought to refer people to the sources.”

He cited the Quran: “I shall cast into the unbelievers’ hearts terror; so smite above the necks, and smite every finger of them.”

Earlier this month, WND columnist Pamela Geller wrote about a grandmother who “had her head chopped off while gardening in her backyard in a suburb of London.”

“Needless to say, the perpetrator did turn out to be Muslim: Nicholas Salvadore, ‘Fat Nick,’ a convert to Islam,” she wrote, but “from the very first, the media obfuscated the fact that he is a Muslim.”

WND also reported this summer on the horrific beheadings of dozens of soldiers at a Syrian base by ISIS.

Video, which has not been independently verified, shows ISIS guerrillas putting the severed heads on poles.

WARNING: This video of atrocities committed by Islamic jihadists is extremely graphic:

But it also has happened in America. Two years ago, authorities in New Jersey alleged a Muslim man beheaded two Coptic Christians, burying their bodies and heads and hands in separate graves near Philadelphia.

According to New York’s WABC-TV, the Muslim was identified as Yusuf Ibrahim, 28. He was taken into custody after the bodies were found.

The report said investigators alleged Ibrahim killed the victims then severed their heads and hands, and buried the remains in the back yard of a home in Buena Vista, N.J.

The report said the victims were from the Coptic Christian community in the area. One of the victims had come from Egypt not many years ago.

WABC reporter Jeff Pegues wrote: “To members of the close knit Coptic Orthodox church the pain is real.”

Geller said it looked like “a ritual killing.”

Five years ago, author Joel Richardson wrote in a WND commentary about the beheading in Nigeria of three Christian pastors by an Islamic group for refusing to convert to Islam.

The Daily Sun in Lagos quoted an eyewitness:

The pastors … were asked to change their faith to Islam. … I think there was an argument by one of the pastors, which gave the others some level of confidence to also resist accepting Islam. … They came out later to the courtyard within the compound and cut their heads one after the other and thereafter, shouted Allah Akbar in wild celebration accompanied with several gun shots.

Also in 2009, WND reported a case in New York in which police said the decapitated wife of a Muslim TV network founder in New York was stabbed several times with hunting knives. She may have been alive as her killer beheaded her.

Despite the circumstances, authorities said they were pursuing a second-degree murder count.

WND reported Muzzammil Hassan, 44, was accused of beheading his wife, Aasiya Hassan, 37.

He had been given an award from the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations, the self-described Muslim civil rights group that boasts of its influence on U.S. government policy.

The Hassans founded Bridges TV in November 2004. They described it as a satellite news and opinion channel aimed at portraying Muslims in a positive light following the Sept. 11 attacks.

Federal government says Boston is breeding ground for U.S.-Jihad pipeline to ISIS
Audio: Is Boston a terrorist breeding ground?

Boston is one of three American cities that the federal government is targeting in an effort to shut down a “U.S.-Jihad pipeline”. A Cambridge mosque was recently linked to members of ISIS and al-Qaida, and a man who grew up in Stoughton is believed to be a member of ISIS.

Dave ward of closed that Islamic Society mosque of this was in Dallas taxes — thing would have been closed. Ten years ago six point five on the great WRKO. The federal government is now deliberately targeting three cities. They believe are now the most important USG hardy pipeline for ice this training and recruiting fighters. My friends. Boston is AG hardest to breeding ground. I say yes meaning he says no. What do you say all of your calls at 80. John you. Hi John. — — — — — Higher on our sites George actually I think — telling — George is it fair okay I’m sorry about the I know you’re talk about this but. I hit Britain paramilitary particularly — that took America. Get to a point where you have to realize that the people hate us. They hate — in no matter what we do try to pacify that it’s not going to happen and that’s what percent of them out of a billion people. That’s a major issue for the governor — the president but think that we’re going to be able that you so touchy Feely type program in order to infiltrate the much — this. It would crash. It absolutely ludicrous. I I see it one day that they’re going to release a chemical. You on the election impossible chlorine bomb and it doesn’t take much to do it it just didn’t in Syria. Opening the door to be demolished look at the quad and residents. I don’t care book while the world will carry a ball then go to — that — Like what the mall. I know on John please — George — about George no I’m with you but remember that story at the Corbin reservoir. Where you are these so called exchange students from the Middle East many of them from Saudi Arabia. Claiming somehow in the middle of the night at midnight. They wanted to drive all the way out to shoot just are urged to look at the trees. To look at how we filter our water here additional much — like — — — so much water — Saudi Arabia they don’t know what to do with that the CEO we filter our water. No one has properly explained to mean what really happened that night I believe it was a trial run. And luckily — local cop a couple of other people noticed they complain to the police the police then came. And they were arrested for trespassing I believe they’re all gone now but let that go. Luckily abided by sheer chance we’re able to discover that. And now the governor is trying to tell us. We had eight terrorists convicted terrorists. Goal through the Boston is the Islamic Society mosque in Boston or in Cambridge. We know that. We tried the marathon terrorist bomb next we know that. Logan was used in the 9/11 attacks we know that we know that ahead of — social media wink. Was not only raised installed and educated in Boston. But is clearly part of the Islamic Society mosque we know that. The federal government is saying were breeding ground. The Justice Department is saying were breeding ground. I’m the only one who sang we’re not a made a breeding ground. The governor and the moon bounce. Going classified me. Available to all of the intelligence. And dad there isn’t any reason com for me to believe — for the expert. — — — 638 here on the great WRK — The federal government is now targeting Boston as well as in Minneapolis and Los Angeles. These three particular cities in the United States has shut down. What the FBI and Homeland Security are now calling. The USG. — pipeline to license. They’re trying to stop Americans from joining nicest. Training for rice is being recruited for rice’s. And what I find just a good news is just it’s incredible.

Peter King on ISIS: Be Ready for Attacks on US Soil

Will ISIS plan a 9/11-style terror plot against the U.S.?


Peter King on ISIS: Be Ready for Attacks on US Soil

By: Bill Hoffmann

Intensifying U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State (ISIS) could provoke members of the terror group already on U.S. soil to stage attacks here, Rep. Peter King tells Newsmax TV.

“First of all, these people would’ve attacked us anyway, but they may feel an urgency to do it now to show that ISIS can fight back, that ISIS is not going to take this,” King, a New York Republican, said Tuesday on “The Steve Malzberg Show.”

“We always have to be alert to them, [but] we have to be even more so now because they want to show . . . the Muslim world they’re not going to sit back and take [it], they’re going to fight back.”

King, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee and chairman of the House Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, said he approves of intensified U.S. airstrikes against jihadists in the Middle East, although he wishes it had happened sooner.

“If [President Barack Obama] continues on this with sustained attacks, then as Americans I believe we should support him,” King said.

“My concern is whether or not the president will stick it through, because one night does not win a war. One week and one month doesn’t win a war. This is going to be a long fight.”

On Tuesday, the U.S. led airstrikes against Islamic State targets with the help of Arab states Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

But King said none of the Arab members of the coalition was actually responsible for dropping bombs.

“I don’t know whether they supplied air bases, but they as I understand it did not actually take part in the attacks themselves,” King said.

“The administration is saying that each country can announce its own involvement.”

King said, however, that the U.S. will eventually have to do the one thing the White House is against if it wants to successfully engage ISIS: deploy soldiers on the ground.

“If the president and the country are serious about it, this is going to be a long, hard fight . . . Air power is not going to be enough, because ISIS is going to disperse, again, they are spread out, which makes it in some ways easier to get them, but air power is not going to win it,” he said.

“It can hurt them, it can knock them back, it can slow them down, it can weaken them, but it’s not going to kill them, it’s not going to destroy them. That’s going to take someone’s troops on the ground.”

King said it would be diplomatically advantageous to have Arab troops participate, but otherwise it will come down to soldiers from Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom.

“They’re the ones who can do this type of fighting. It’s better politically and diplomatically to have Arab nations involved, but bottom line, it’s going to have to come down to the U.S. doing the tough fighting,” he said.

“I’m not talking about a large-scale ground war where you’d have platoons and companies and battalions and brigades, but you are going, I believe, to have to have Special Forces.

“You will have to have intelligence on the ground . . .as spotters for the bombing attacks and . . . at least have U.S. troops embedded with whoever’s down there.”

King does not think the U.S. should count on recruits from the free Syrian Army.

“It’s hard to find who can be trusted and who can’t. It’s not going to be a large number, and then you have to train them and you have to get them out there,” he said. “It’s going to take six months to a year, and that can be a lifetime in a war.”

On Wednesday, Obama will also chair an unusual U.N. Security Council meeting at which members are expected to adopt a resolution requiring all countries to prevent the recruitment and transport of would-be foreign fighters preparing to join terrorist groups such as the Islamic State.

Government watching for ‘Americans with guns’

Government watching for ‘Americans with guns’…By Josh Ely

While you’re worrying about ISIS terrorists slipping across our southern border, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is worrying about you.

If you want to know whom the Obama administration thinks of when the term, “domestic terrorist,” is used, “just listen to the language Holder uses,” warns this critic of America’s growing police state.


The terrorism threat is becoming more and more ominous for Americans: Two of the three victims murdered by ISIS Muslims in the past few weeks have been American. There has been evidence of Muslims crossing into the U.S. illegally from Mexico. And there have been individual instances of Muslims accused of killing Americans in the U.S.

So what is U.S. Attorney General Eric Holders plan? A “community based” approach.

He’s suggested that groups outside of traditional law enforcement can keep an eye out for, or intervene in the lives of individuals who may be at risk for radicalization. ISIS was only mentioned once in a recent speech by Holder, and it was clear that he wants to avoid hinting that the new program would seek out those susceptible to following extremist ideologies.

Cheryl Chumley, author of “Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming Our Reality,” believes Holder’s approach was a mistake.

“Just listen to the language Holder uses – he wants to build community coalitions to ‘raise awareness’ and ‘share information on best practices’ to combat terrorism and persuade Americans contemplating joining the jihad to rethink those plans,” she said.

If this matches Holder’s approach to domestic terror, Chumley was unsurprised. She said Holder’s “main fear” is domestic violence.

Last year, the Congressional Research Service published a paper examining domestic terrorism.

In it, the FBI defined domestic terrorism as having no foreign component whatsoever.

In fact, the bureau’s and the Department of Homeland Security’s practical shorthand definition of domestic terrorism is “Americans attacking Americans based on U.S.-based extremist ideologies.”

The threats to your privacy are exposed in “Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming our Reality.”

Also cited was a Southern Poverty Law Center claim that “changing racial demographics of the country, frustration over the government’s handling of the economy and the mainstreaming of conspiracy theories motivated some hate groups.”

The report and high profile incidents in its wake led Holder to revive the Domestic Terrorism Executive Committee within the Department of Justice. However, other federal departments’ policies had predated Holder’s stance on domestic terror.

The Washington Times reported in 2009 that the Department of Homeland Security had issued a warning to local law enforcement about “rightwing extremist activity.”

Adding to the narrative, the group New America had labeled instances of domestic terrorism “deadly right wing attacks” and claiming they were more prevalent than jihadist-inspired terror in the years since 9/11.

The data had quietly shaped government policy. Chumley said that by this time, the attorney general’s intentions had been made “loud and clear.”

Holder believed, said Chumley, “America’s biggest threat is Americans with guns – not ISIS terrorists with a stated goal of spreading the caliphate throughout the world.”

“And that’s why ISIS continues to spread, and will continue to spread,” she said.

WND reported last week a case against an alleged Muslim terrorist who reportedly described his brutal killing of New Jersey teen Brendan Tevlin “for being American” as a “just kill.”

“It was, in fact, an act of jihad, perpetrated by a fellow American who sympathized more with those who want to annihilate us than with his own country and its people,” said radio host Todd Pettengill of “The Todd Show” on WPLJ in New York City.

He recounted the declaration by the suspect, Ali Muhammad Brown, 29, that the June 25 attack was a “just kill.”

“Domestic terrorism, no matter what the president says, is already here,” he warned.

During the first few weeks of his presidency, Obama spotlighted what he saw as a serious “right-wing” threat.

At that time, an unclassified Department of Homeland Security report warned of the possibility of violence by unnamed “right-wing extremists,” including opponents of abortion. The DHS report was followed days later by a report from the Missouri Information Analysis Center that warned law enforcement officials to watch out for individuals with “radical” ideologies based on Christianity.

Constitutional expert Herb Titus of William J. Olson, P.C. told WND that Americans should be wary by attempts by the Obama administration to crack down on “terrorism.”

“What do they mean by domestic terrorism?” he asked at the time. “The problem, whether it’s called international or domestic terrorism, is the word ‘terrorism.’ There’s no legal or historic meaning.”

Further, a study at the West Point Military Academy asserted people who are part of the ideological right wing of American society constitute a danger to the nation. And the Department of Defense was caught teaching that critics of abortion are “low-level terrorists.”

DHS also was found to be monitoring a blog posted by a Christian who was forced to flee Brazil because of the conflict between the nation’s pro-homosexual “hate crimes” agenda and his advocacy for traditional marriage.

Later, a West Point study from the U.S. Military Academy’s Combating Terrorism Center linked opposition to abortion and other “fundamental” positions to terrorism.

ISIS Using Social Media to Recruit ‘Lone Wolf’ Bombers

ISIS Using Social Media to Recruit ‘Lone Wolf’ Bombers

by Fox News Insider
As seen on America’s Newsroom

Rick Leventhal reported this morning (video above) from Times Square on new concerns that ISIS is trying to inspire “lone wolf” bombings on high-profile targets like the heart of Manhattan or the Las Vegas strip.

New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton calls it a “new era of potential terrorism,” but said right now there are “no credible, specific threats to the city.”

Leventhal pointed to an online chat room, claiming to be affiliated with ISIS, that provided information on making pipe bombs out of household materials like matches, sugar and Christmas lights.

The new post suggests locations and advice on covering one’s tracks and doing maximum damage. Leventhal said the concern is that someone not connected to ISIS will attempt an attack on their own.

The report comes on the heels of the arrest of a man in upstate New York for allegedly trying to recruit ISIS fighters.

More on the arrest from

Mufid Elfgeeh, 30, of Rochester, was indicted by a federal grand jury on three counts of attempting to provide material support and resources to the group widely known as ISIS that has been designated by the U.S. as a foreign terrorist organization, federal prosecutors said Tuesday. Elfgeeh, who was born in Yemen and is a naturalized U.S. citizen, is one of the first people accused by the U.S. of recruiting on behalf of ISIS.

According to court documents seen by the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, Elfgeeh tried to raise money to enable a Yemeni man to join ISIS. At one point, Elfgeeh allegedly sent the man $600 to travel from Yemen to Syria. An FBI affidavit alleges that this past April, Elfgeeh traveled to Buffalo with an FBI informant to get a passport for the latter man. Elfgeeh suggested that ISIS would use the informant to “operate a cannon, act as a sniper and/or build bombs,” the document claims.

Elfgeeh was arrested this past May in the parking lot of a local Wal-Mart after taking delivery of two handguns equipped with silencers and ammunition. Elfgeeh had allegedly given the informant $1,050 in cash to purchase the handguns, which had been rendered inoperable. Federal authorities said he bought the weapons as part of a plan to kill members of the U.S. armed forces returning from war, as well as Shiites in the Rochester area.

Prosecutors said two of the three individuals Elfgeeh had contact with were cooperating with the FBI.

“Disrupting and holding accountable those who seek to provide material support to foreign terrorist organizations is and shall remain a critical national security priority,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Carlin.

The investigation included linking Elfgeeh’s home computer to tweets from alias Twitter accounts expressing support for Al Qaeda, violent holy war and Sunni insurgent groups in Syria, according to court papers.

One message allegedly from Elfgeeh read, “al-Qaida [sic] said it loud and clear; we are fighting the American invasion and their hegemony over the earth and the people.”

Elfgeeh is also charged with one count of attempting to kill “officers and employees of the United States,” two counts or possession of an unregistered firearm silencer, and a count of possession of firearms and silencers in furtherance of a violent crime. He is scheduled to appear in court for arraignment Thursday.

Elfgeeh’s lawyer, Assistant Federal Public Defender Mark Hosken, told the Democrat & Chronicle that he would enter a not guilty plea in response to all the charges.

U.N. to dump flood of Muslim refugees on U.S.

U.N. to dump flood of Muslim refugees on U.S.

By Leo Hohmann In Faith,Front Page,Politics,U.S.,World

Syrian refugees at a protest rally

Syrian refugees at a protest rally

Displaced Syrians will likely make up the next big wave of Muslim refugees coming to America.

Since the early 1990s, the United Nations high commissioner for refugees has selected more than 200,000 refugees from Islamic countries to be resettled in the United States. Most of them have come from Somalia and Iraq.

Syria could soon be added to the mix in the midst of that country’s brutal civil war. The Obama administration has been greasing the skids for the Syrian refugees for months, WND has learned, and the refugees will soon be dumped on American cities throughout the U.S.

In February, the State Department moved to ease the rules that protect the U.S. from accepting refugees with potential ties to terrorist organizations. The rules were seen as “too strict” by the refugee-resettlement groups that lobby Congress and the administration to continuously let in more Muslims from the war-torn Middle East.

Then on Sept. 4, a U.S. State Department spokeswoman hinted at her daily press briefing that a new wave of refugees will soon be coming from another predominantly Muslim nation – Syria.

“The United Nations high commissioner for refugees just this year started referring Syrian refugees to the United States for processing,” said Marie Harf. “Obviously, we have several thousand in the pipeline, and that number will continue to go up.”

Obama’s State Department is expected to present Congress with a list within the next two weeks that shows the total number of foreign refugees it wants to accept into the country over the next year and the countries from which they will come. The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1.

A few local newspaper reports have already surfaced, providing clues as to where some of the Syrian refugees will be delivered. The Winston-Salem Journal carried a report last week that the Triad area of North Carolina could receive some of the refugees. The first Syrian family has already arrived in Greensboro, North Carolina, and is living in a hotel there, according to the Journal.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Sept. 10 that the city’s social services were preparing for “a flood of refugees” from Syria and Iraq later this year. Cleveland, Akron and Columbus, Ohio, have been hotspots in the past for Muslim refugees coming from the Middle East.

Once the refugees are relocated to an American city, they are quickly connected to an array of taxpayer-funded social services, including Medicaid, food stamps and subsidized housing. Interpreters and tutors are often provided to help bridge the language gap that refugee children will find in local public schools.

Groups like Human Rights First, World Relief Corp., the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the Catholic and Lutheran churches all have strong presences in Washington and often do the bidding of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services, World Relief, Episcopal Migration Ministries, Church World Services and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society push for more foreign refugees to be resettled in America, which results in more federal grants flowing into their coffers.

WND has documented in previous stories that more than 90 percent of the money used by these religious charities for resettling refugees comes from federal grants, much like government contractors operating in a lucrative resettlement business under the guise of providing “charity.”

Most of the Syrian refugees will likely be coming from Turkey, where thousands have fled across the border from Syria, but others are huddled in refugee camps in Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt.

Melanie Nezer, head of policy and advocacy at Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, one of the organizations that resettles refugees in the U.S. using federal grants, wrote an op-ed March 28 in the New York Daily News in which she called for the U.S. to accept 75,000 Syrian refugees over the next five years. That would be 15,000 a year coming to the U.S. under permanent refugee status.

“That’s a huge number,” said Ann Corcoran, a writer and researcher for Refugee Resettlement Watch, a group that monitors the U.N.’s distribution of foreign refugees throughout the United States. She said 15,000 a year would be on a par with the Iraqi refugee program, which has produced the largest, fastest-growing refugee community in the U.S. since Sept. 11, 2001.

“Most of the Syrian refugees in these refugee camps are Sunni Muslims; they’re not Christians,” said Corcoran. “The camps in places like Turkey and Jordan, you’re not going to find a ton of Christians.”

The United Nations, working with the U.S. State Department, has already shipped approximately 115,000 Iraqis to American cities since Sept. 11. Another 100,000 Somalis have been resettled in the United States since that country devolved into civil war in 1993. The Somali refugees have been described as 99.9 percent Muslim by Somali-American leaders. The Iraqi refugees have also been majority Muslim and, while the exact percentages are more difficult to track, the Iraqis coming to the States have been estimated at 62 percent Muslim.

Culture clash in American cities

Once here, Muslim families have vastly more children than the typical American family. The average Somali couple in Minnesota, for example, has six children.

These refugee families have changed the demographics of their host cities, such as Shelbyville, Tennessee, Lewiston, Maine, and Minneapolis, Minnesota, all of which have reported culture clashes between Muslims expecting everything from foot baths at public colleges to dietary concessions at public schools. A Tyson Foods meat-packing plant in Shelbyville decided in 2009 to acquiesce to a local union’s demands to drop the paid holiday of Labor Day in favor of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, a decision that Tyson later reversed in the wake of a public backlash.

And in Minneapolis, Mayor Betsy Hodges sparked controversy in April when she showed up to a meeting with the city’s increasingly powerful Muslim community wearing a hijab.

Problems have also arisen with Islamic radicals recruiting young Muslim refugees in America. WND has reported in recent weeks about FBI investigations into 25 to 30 Somali refugees leaving their homes in Minnesota to become fighters for ISIS in Syria and the al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabab in Somalia.

Pamela Geller, author of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance,” said it should come as no surprise that the U.N. would do everything in its power to flood the United States with as many Muslim refugees as possible.

She said the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, or OIC, which is comprised of 56 Muslim countries and the Palestinian Authority, makes up the largest voting bloc at the U.N. General Assembly.

“They’re very powerful, they’re very dangerous,” Geller said. “You can’t make this stuff up.”

Geller, Corcoran and others such as Islam scholar Bat Ye’or have long warned that there are two methods of creating Islamic supremacy in the world. One is through violent jihad, the other through al-hijra, or the Islamic doctrine of immigration.

“Basically you have those who want to take over (countries) through immigration saying to the jihadists “you guys need to stop cutting people’s heads off and be patient,’” Corcoran said. Al-hijra will accomplish the same goal over the long term in countries open to immigration, which includes the United States and most of Europe.

The United States takes in about 70,000 foreign refugees per year, more than any other country in the world. Besides the United States, Germany and Sweden have also agreed to take in Syrian refugees through the U.N. program. Germany has agreed to accept another 10,000 Syrian refugees after already absorbing 6,000, while Sweden has agreed to accept up to 17,000 over the next year.

Creeping toward Sharia?

In 2011, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hosted a two-day conference with the OIC in Washington to discuss how to implement U.N. Resolution 1618 to combat “religious intolerance” and “negative stereotyping” against Muslims in the U.S., which Geller said amounted to a version of the Muslim anti-blasphemy laws.

“It was to implement the Sharia is what it was,” she said. “It was really an anti-free speech measure.”

Then in 2013 a U.S. attorney in Tennessee, William Killian, said it is possible that some inflammatory comments about Muslims posted on social media could violate civil-rights laws. He later backed off his plan to criminalize an entire segment of speech deemed offensive to Muslims, a decision Geller notes came only after an intense public outcry.

“You know, we have real problems, they’ve disarmed the American people, misinforming them or not informing them at all,” Geller said. “There are no human rights under the Sharia for non-Muslims and so the U.N. is deeply problematic. And we do their bidding.”

State Department documents show that Iraq has produced the single largest number of refugees resettled in the United States. In fiscal year 2013 alone, 19,488 Iraqis were resettled in America, followed by Burma with 16,299, Bhutan with 9,134 and Somalia with 7,608. Only 36 Syrians were allowed into the U.S. in 2013, followed by just 63 so far in 2014.

“But again, part of this is because the U.N. High Commissioner on Refugees only began this year in mid-2014 referring refugees in large numbers to the United States,” Harf said in the Sept. 4 briefing.

The Syrian civil war now has the potential to surpass even the Iraq War in its ability to create refugees. The war has caused more than 3 million Syrians to be uprooted since 2011.

Steve Emerson, a counter-terrorism expert and author of six books on radical Islam, said the screening process for refugees is not nearly tight enough.

“They’re doing very little vetting. Several years ago it was discovered that Iraqi militants were being resettled in California,” Emerson said. “So the resettlement program that’s going on around the US, the vast majority of refugees are not involved in terrorism but certainly the vetting process is lacking. It’s not that easy to acquire the intelligence needed to deny someone refugee status if in fact the conditions that apply for asylum are met.”

Then there is the problem of the powerful refugee lobby in Washington.

“You have a pro refugee lobby in the United States that is very strong and the Obama administration has been particularly receptive to it,” Emerson said.

The U.N. has been trying to relocate 30,000 Syrians it considers most vulnerable, and the U.S. would normally accept half of those, according to witnesses who testified at a Senate hearing in January.

A State Department official, who asked not to be identified, told WND that refugees assigned to the U.S. by the United Nations are thoroughly screened by the Department of Homeland Security before they are allowed into the country.

“I would refer you to DHS on that but I can assure you it’s a very rigorous process,” the official said.

The United States admits more refugees per year than all of the other countries in the world combined, Harf said.

“I think we should make the point about refugees here, that the United States resettles more refugees than the rest of the world combined, period,” Harf said. “And I think our commitment to helping with resettlement of refugees is an important one that we take very seriously.”

Islamic State (ISIS) cells are already in the United States, and some of them have entered by crossing the Mexican border says former CIA agent Bob Baer. people working in intelligence-gathering have told him they don’t know what ISIS members’ plans are, but “it’s a definite concern.

New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte has poured cold water on claims by Obama administration counter-terrorism officials that Islamic State militants are not capable of conducting an attack inside the United States.

Senior officials were quizzed by lawmakers during a Senate committee on homeland security about whether the terror organization, also known as ISIS or ISIL, posed a threat to American citizens at home, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“The greatest threat from ISIL to the U.S. and its interests is inside Iraq right now,” said Nicholas Rasmussen, deputy director of the National Counterterrorism Center, using the name for the insurgents that the White House prefers, which stands for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

He added that if the Islamic State’s military force was not degraded, then the danger of ISIS plots against the U.S. and other nations is “likely to grow.”

But Ayotte attacked Rasmussen’s assessment, pointing out that the extremists have the money, the ideology, the capability, and an interest in launching attacks on U.S. soil.

“I’m concerned it’s an understatement to say it’s a regional threat,” said the Republican senator.

Rasmussen replied: “Right now, we assess they do not have active ongoing plots aimed at the U.S. homeland. I don’t mean by any means to minimize the threat.”

The secretary said that al-Qaida still has the greatest ability to launch attacks inside America, while noting that the terror group has launched several plots in recent years against Americans, including a plan to blow up an airliner over Detroit.

But during a Wednesday hearing of a House subcommittee on border security, Texas Rep. Michael McCaul claimed that the Islamic State “is the biggest threat to the homeland,” according to the Journal.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson made similar remarks to Rasmussen during a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations on Wednesday, the newspaper said.

“Though we know of no credible information that ISIL is planning to attack the homeland at present, we know that ISIL is prepared to kill innocent Americans they encounter because they are Americans,” said Johnson.

The secretary said that ISIL was currently such a threat to U.S. interests and its allies overseas that “the only responsible thing to do is to take them on before they become even more dangerous.”

Johnson added, “This type of terrorist threat simply has to be engaged. You can’t avoid it.”


Islamic State Terrorists Talked of Entering US Via Mexico

Islamic State extremists have discussed infiltrating the U.S. through its southern border with Mexico, a U.S. official said.

Francis Taylor, under secretary for intelligence and analysis at the Department of Homeland Security, told a Senate committee today that the Sunni militants have been tracked discussing the idea on social-media sites such as Twitter Inc.

“There have been Twitter and social-media exchanges among ISIL adherents across the globe speaking about that as a possibility,” Taylor said in response to a question from Senator John McCain, an Arizona Republican. Islamic State is also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

Referring to the 1,933-mile (3,110-kilometer) boundary with Mexico, Taylor said he was “satisfied that we have the intelligence and the capability at our border that would prevent that activity.”

Taylor’s comments before the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee came hours before President Barack Obama was to outline in a speech plans to expand the U.S. offensive against Islamic State. Steps under consideration include blocking foreign fighters from entering Syria and Iraq, delivering more aid to moderate factions among Syrian rebels, and expanding air strikes to Islamic State targets in Syria.

Mexican Cartels

Taylor said the security of the U.S.’s southwest border remains a high concern for his department, and that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has ordered “a comprehensive southern border security strategy that will include national security risks.”

U.S. intelligence officials said they are skeptical that Mexican drug cartels would let jihadists use their turf or delivery routes to attack the U.S. The cartels know that terrorist attackers coming through areas they control would almost certainly bring massive retaliation and a militarized border that would threaten their lucrative narcotics-smuggling operations, said two officials, who requested anonymity to discuss classified intelligence assessments.

Officials testifying before the committee said that Islamic State currently poses the greatest threat to U.S. interests in Iraq and within the region. At the moment, the group’s ability to develop significant, large-scale attacks diminishes with distance from Syria and Iraq, said Nicholas Rasmussen, deputy director of the National Counterterrorism Center.

Not Immediate

“We do not assess right now they have the capability to mount an effective large-scale attack on the United States,” Rasmussen said.

Islamic State’s sweep across Iraq and a campaign of terror that has included the beheading of two U.S. journalists have galvanized fears among Americans of a rising terrorist threat and stirred demands from lawmakers that Obama articulate a plan for dealing with the issue.

Sixty-five percent of Americans back bombing strikes against the extremists in Syria, more than double the level of support from a year ago, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released yesterday.

Islamic State members have surfaced in Europe — specifically in a shooting that killed four people at a Jewish museum in Brussels and through arrests in Paris — “a clear indication of ISIL’s ambition to operate outside the Middle East,” Rasmussen said. If the group is left to grow, that threat will only increase, he said.

‘Apostate’ Governments

“Left unchecked, ISIL poses a threat to all governments it considers apostate,” Rasmussen said, adding that the group’s targets would include governments in Europe, the U.S., Africa and the Middle East.

Lawmakers concentrated on the threat posed by foreign fighters who join Islamic State, either Americans or Europeans who wouldn’t need a visa to enter the United States.

Johnson, speaking in New York today, said that about 12,000 foreigners are estimated to have traveled to Syria to fight over the past three years. The FBI has arrested some people who have tried to travel from the U.S. to Syria to join the fight.

In response to threats from overseas, Johnson said the U.S. has increased aviation security in 25 airports abroad since early July, adding screening of both passengers and carry-on luggage.

Rasmussen estimated that “over 100 persons from a wide variety of backgrounds have attempted to travel to the region” from the U.S. to fight alongside extremist groups active in Iraq and Syria.

‘Looking to Join’

Many go “simply looking to join the fight” and engage with extremist elements, not necessarily searching to join Islamic State in particular, Rasmussen said. “Where they end up actually affiliating plays out over time,” he said.

Rasmussen said the estimate of 100 people included individuals who show intent to travel but haven’t left the U.S. as well as those who remain there, those who have been killed and those who have returned.

One wild card will be U.S. citizens who may be radicalized through the Internet and decide to take up arms here, Rasmussen said.

“We can’t account for homegrown terrorists,” Rasmussen said, “people who might self-affiliate.”

This “lone-wolf” phenomenon “is the hardest terrorist threat to detect, and the one I worry about the most,” he said, citing the Boston Marathon bombers.

‘Aggressive’ Sharing

If there is any good news, Rasmussen said, it is the “aggressive information-sharing with all of our partners who have the same problem.” This has given the U.S. and Europe “a significant leg up” in attempts “to disrupt travel when these individuals attempt to leave Iraq,” he said.

Gathering data on Islamic State and other extremists groups has become more difficult since disclosures by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, Rasmussen said, as intelligence agencies have seen terrorists change their methods and means of communication to avoid detection.

Those changes “frustrate our counterterrorism efforts,” he said. “We cannot connect the dots if we cannot collect the dots.”
