MAINE: Three Somali Muslim savages charged with beating a Christian man to death in Portland

Court documents that were unsealed last Monday, demonstrate exactly what Barack Hussein Obama is bringing to the shores of America in the tens of thousands every year. The details contained in the document show how three Somali Muslim immigrants beat a Christian man to death in Portland, Maine.

Suspects Osman Sheikh Said, Abil Teshome, & Mohamed Mohamud,

Suspects Osman Sheikh Said, Abil Teshome, & Mohamed Mohamud

Three Somali Muslims, Mohamud Mohamed, 36, and Osman Sheikh, 31, Abil Teshome, 23, brutally beat and murdered Freddy Akoa, 49. The attack allegedly took place over the span of several hours, in which Akoa suffered cuts and bruises all over his body, a lacerated liver and 22 rib fractures. However, according to the autopsy, Akoa died as a result of blows to his head.

Akoa was found on his living room floor next to his blood-splattered Bible. A court document with Mohamed’s name on it was found under his body and there was a purse on the kitchen counter with contents inside with the name of Jennifer Wilson on them, according to Portland Police Detective Christopher Giesecke

Local police would not comment on what they believed happened and whether or not the attack was religion-based or not. I’m pretty sure most of us know already that it is.

Each of the men were held at the Cumberland County Jail without bail.

While I make mention of what the Obama administration has done by bringing tens of thousands of Muslims into the US under the guise of them being “Muslim refugees, which Homeland Security is failing miserably to vet these people, the reality is that the federal government has bee resettling Somali Muslims in the Portland area since 2002. That’s right. Literally months after 9/11, the Bush administration was engaged in the same kind of Muslim integration into the US as the Obama administration, but the Obama administration has dwarfed refugee resettlement compared to the Bush administration. We’ve even learned that Muslims have been flown into the US illegally.

Now, another Christian American man is dead, and why? Because the federal government, which was given authority to protect the American people via immigration has failed in its duty. But they haven’t just failed, in many of these cases, they have been complicit.

Leo Hohmann reports:

Could they have gotten into an argument over religion? Police wouldn’t say if the Bible was found open or closed, but its presence so close to the body leaves one to wonder.

A local detective refused to fill in any of the many blank holes in the story of Freddy Akoa’s death.

“I can’t go into any of the details,” Detective Rich Vogel of the Portland Police Department told WND. “I’m just not at liberty to give out any information about a case that’s subject to an ongoing investigation. Eventually the whole story will come out. It always does.”

THAILAND: Two more suspects (at least one of which is definitely a Muslim) being hunted in Aug 17’s deadly bomb blast in Bangkok

images

The hunt for those behind the Bangkok shrine blast narrowed on Monday (Aug 31) as police revealed they have two new suspects after more bomb-making paraphernalia was found in a suburban apartment. The bomb that hit the Erawan shrine on Aug 17 was Thailand’s worst single mass-casualty attack, killing 20 and wounding hundreds, the majority of them ethnic Chinese tourists from across Asia.

Channel News Asia (h/t CB Japan)  Suspicion has alternated between Thailand’s bitter political rivals, organized criminal gangs, extremist militants, rebels in the kingdom’s strife-torn south and sympathizers of Muslim refugees from China’s Uighur minority, a minority that has been behind virtually all the terrorist attacks against the Chinese people in the last several years.

In July, Thailand deported 109 Uighurs to China, enraging supporters of the Muslim minority which is under tight scrutiny by the Chinese government. Turkish protesters stormed the Thai consulate in Istanbul and forced it to close.

Police are now seeking a Thai woman and an unidentified man after bomb-making materials were discovered over the weekend in an apartment in the suburb of Minburi. Investigators believe it was used as a hideout by the network that carried out the attack.

In a televised broadcast Prawut displayed a photograph of the wanted Thai woman, taken from an official identity card, showing her wearing a black hijab (below). He named her as 26-year-old Wanna Suansan – also known by the Muslim name Misaloh – the first time a suspect in the bombing probe has been identified.

“We found fertiliser bags, watches, radio controls – parts to make bombs and electric charges,” said national police spokesman Prawut Thavornsiri. “We are confident they are the same group.”

Police had detained an unidentified foreign man (below) on Saturday morning at another flat nearby, where detonators, industrial pipes and ball bearings were found. Dozens of fake Turkish passports were also found in his flat, police added.

Authorities have been at pains to play down any suggestion the attack was launched by international Islamic terrorists or targeted Chinese visitors, in a nation where tourism represents nearly 10 per cent of the economy.

Analysts have speculated the blast, which has not been claimed by any group, more likely, could have been motivated by revenge over Thailand’s recent deportation of the ethnic Uighurs to China.

Like lambs to slaughter, the people of Europe are being forced to commit national suicide by their leaders

Totally blind to or complicit with the existential threat that millions of Muslim potential jihadists, freeloaders, rapists, and thugs pose to their own citizenry, French and German leaders condemn anyone who protests or commits violence against the never-ending flood of illegal alien Muslim invaders into their lands.

France strongly condemns Hungary for putting up a huge border fence to keep out the Muslim illegals, saying “it goes against European ‘values'”(thwarting an enemy invasion is against your values?)

Hey, Pope Francis, how about taking a few thousand of these mostly Muslim illegal aliens into the Vatican if you’re so worried about them?

FRIGHTENING VIDEO OF Muslims turning Paris into a virtual war zone

Millions of Muslim invaders posing as “refugees” are flooding Europe, this year more than ever before. The savages, represented mainly by young N. African and Middle Eastern strongmen, are being sent to create an Islamic Army for the goal of conquering Europe, while wreaking havoc on innocent citizens who are being robbed, assaulted, and raped by these Muslim thugs.

What do the EU leaders have to say about it? “All EU countries should be willing to welcome even more of these so-called “refugees.”

Barack Hussein Obama refused to help Jordan fight the Islamic State (ISIS), so Israel is helping them

The Obama Regime this year turned down a request from Jordan for Predator spy drones that would help it locate targets in the war against the Islamic State, so, instead, the state of Israel will supply them.

Jordan's King Abdullah II and Israel's PM Benjamin Netanyahu

Jordan’s King Abdullah II and Israel’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu

Washington Times  The refusal, disclosed by a House Armed Services Committee member, has gained attention since Jordan has emerged as a critical player in a U.S.-led coalition to destroy the Islamist terrorist group in the days after it released a video of its execution by fire of a captured Jordanian military pilot.

1jet

Members of Congress  called on the White House to approve a list of weapons for King Abdullah II, a strong U.S. ally. “The decision to deny the request should be reversed immediately,” Mr. Hunter wrote. “Doing so will provide Jordan critical mission capability in the fight against the Islamic State and ensure Jordan is given every advantage.

The Arab Daily News  In another sign of the increased cooperation and strategic military alliance between Israel and Jordan, news reports said that Israel will supply Jordan with two types of drones to help Jordan fight the Islamic State in Iraq, ISIS.

the-heron-drone

The London based Jane’s Defense magazine which reported the news earlier this week based on Israeli news sources said that Israel will supply Jordan with 12 “Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) Heron TP strategic and Elbit Systems Skylark tactical UAVs.” The Heron TP is the largest and most sophisticated UAV in service since entering the IDF in 2010. The drone can fly to an altitude of 45,000 feet and stay there for up to 40 hours if necessary.

Israel has been helping Jordan in its fight against the Islamic State terrorist group in Iraq and Syria by supplying its former foe turned strategic ally with high tech weapons to protect its borders against the terrorist group.

The Heron TP (Eitan) UAV is designed to fly at high altitude on missions spanning over several days. This HALE (High Altitude Long Endurance) UAV has a wingspan of a Boeing 737 and weighs 4.5 tons; and of that, 1,000 Kg is payload. The Eitan, derived from the `Heron' MALE (Medium Altitude Long Endurance) platform, was developed by Israel Aerospace Industry (IAI).

An Israeli defense website reported last week that a joint Jordanian-Israeli command and control war room is currently leading the air campaign against ISIS from a base in northern Jordan. 

Sources in the Pentagon, however, who did not wish to be identified for this story told the Arab Daily News that the Israeli drones will help Jordanian Special Forces currently fighting ISIS in Iraq and supporting the US troops on the ground there. A total of 12 Israeli-made UAVs will be delivered to Jordan in the near future.

SHOCKING NEW VIDEO released by the Islamic State (ISIS) shows 4 prisoners chained upside down and then savagely burned to death

screen-shot-2015-08-31-at-8-46-35-am

A new video released by the Islamic State shows four Iraqi Shia men accused of spying chained upside down above a fire and burned to death in Anbar, Iraq.

The video is titled “Punish With An Equivalent Of That With Which You Were Harmed.” The title of the video comes from Qur’anic verse 16:126:

And if you punish [an enemy, O believers], punish with an equivalent of that with which you were harmed. But if you are patient – it is better for those who are patient.

HEAVY ISIS jihadists have burnt to death four Iraqi men by chaining them upside down and setting fire to a trail of petrol that engulfed them in flames. The four men, who are chained around their wrists and ankles, are forced to watch as the flames lick towards them after a  masked ISIS militant used a large torch to set fire to them.

2BD7A8BC00000578-3216937-image-a-63_1441020494068

It is the latest horrific propaganda video to be released by the brutal jihadi group. Forced to wear orange boiler suits, the four prisoners each introduce themselves to the camera, giving their names and a brief description of their role in fighting ISIS.

2BD7A8E000000578-3216937-image-a-47_1441020191690

Underneath the men, a line of fuel has been poured and slight patches of straw have been added in preparation for the flames.  The video shows slow motion footage as the fire begins to burn up the line of fuel, heading rapidly towards the men, who have been doused in accelerant.

The men scream and writhe as the fire gets closer. Various angles are filmed of the murder.

The Independent reports: “Dr Andreas Krieg, an expert on the Middle East from King’s College’s Department of Defence Studies, told The Independent that the new video was unlike previous ISIS releases designed to “terrorise a global audience and attract fanatics”. He said that Shia militias, often with the support of Iran and employed by the Iraqi government, have been committing atrocities “of the same scale as ISIS” since 2003.”

screen-shot-2015-08-31-at-8-49-12-am

The men quickly succumb to an agonizing death.

screen-shot-2015-08-31-at-8-49-16-am

Prior to their deaths, the prisoners are made to watch several videos showing the mutilation of the bodies of dead ISIS fighters by members of the Iraqi army and allied Shi’a militias.

One video shows the corpse of a dead jihadi hanging upside down as several soldiers, thought to be members of the Iraqi army, watch as the body is set on fire. The prisoners are also shown footage of Abu Azrael hacking the flesh off the body of a charred ISIS fighter. He is shown using a large sword to carve at the dead body and turns to the camera, saying: ‘ISIS this will be your fate, we will cut you like shawarma.

CARLY FIORINA’S secret deals with Iran while CEO of Hewlett Packard, not to mention her Ottoman Empire admiration, make her unfit for president

anmdda09b81cb0a5896Carly Fiorina’s illegal dealings with Iran, during her tenure as CEO of HP, were exposed in the Boston Globe which broke the story that Hewlett Packard had been selling its printers in Iran through a subsidiary company in Dubai, despite the fact that a trade embargo had been in place against the Iranian regime since 1997. The sales were halted shortly after the business dealings were published by the Globe.

Texas GOP  Fiorina claimed no knowledge that the approximately $100 million of sales through the subsidiary were coming from Iran, despite having been HP CEO (since 2000) while it was happening.  An investigation by the San Jose Mercury News last year showed that Fiorina did know.

071415_fiorina

  • “Fiorina in 2003 noted Middle East sales were defying global trends, and, as the Merc notes, HP’s partner there issued a press release saying sales topped $100 million and that “the seeds of the Redington-Hewlett-Packard relationship were sowed six years ago for one market – Iran.” 

  • Three of the three HP partners in the Middle East contacted by Christopher Stewart for a story in Portfolio magazine’s August 2008 issue readily agreed to ship printers to Iran. Portfolio notified HP of the incidents, but the company didn’t condemn them, instead refusing comment. Fiorina was gone as CEO at this point, but Portfolio noted that diversion of American products to Iran through Dubai had been going strong for many years, while Fiorina was CEO. 

  • HP had an office in the Dubai free-trade zones notorious for funneling American goods to Iran, Portfolio reported — so it had ample means to be aware of how its products were being shipped. 

  • After the SEC noticed the prevalance of HP products in Iran, it asked the company about the matter, and got back a letter from the company saying its Dutch subsidiary sold $120 million to Iran in 2008. 

  • Finally, in January 2009, HP severed ties with Redington Gulf, the distributor that had publicly bragged about its Iran trade six years earlier.”

Chuck DeVore, who worked for the Reagan administration Commerce department on import issues, and also was an aerospace industry executive, says Fiorina’s responses on the Iran deal are not credible.

“We’ve known for some time that throughout Fiorina’s watch, Hewlett-Packard used Redington Gulf in Dubai — named after its co-founder, William Redington Hewlett — as a front company for the circumvention of U.S. export restrictions to the Islamic Republic of Iran. If Carly Fiorina tolerated that level of unethical business practices in the Middle East, it is sadly predictable that she would exercise the same moral laxity elsewhere.

“When confronted with this news, Fiorina will do what she always does: deny knowledge despite having been a famously micromanaging and bottom-line-oriented CEO.” Fiorina was forced out of Hewlett Packard in 2005.

BNI was among the first to expose Carly Fiorina’s ‘Islam problem,’ both HERE  and HERE. And because the Muslim world still poses such a great threat to our National Security,  it’s important to at least take a few of her points and refute them, with the historical record:

carly-shahada

Fiorina – “There was once a civilization that was the greatest in the world. It was able to create a continental super-state that stretched from ocean to ocean, and from northern climes to tropics and deserts.”

The Facts – The Ottoman Empire (1299-1922), was an Islamic Caliphate…a form of Islamic government led by a Caliph, a person considered a political and religious successor to their prophet Muhammed and a leader of the entire Muslim community (Ummah). They, like all Islamic movements since Muhammed, invaded non-Muslim lands and took land, pillaged, raped, tortured and slaughtered…all with the same goal of conquering the entire earth for Islam. They slaughtered their way through Christian Europe for 500 years…hence the reason for the Crusades (see THE CRUSADES: A Direct Response To Islam’s Bloodlust).

Fiorina – “Within its dominion lived hundreds of millions of people, of different creeds and ethnic origins. One of its languages became the universal language of much of the world, the bridge between the peoples of a hundred lands. Its armies were made up of people of many nationalities, and its military protection allowed a degree of peace and prosperity that had never been known.”

The Facts – From 1894-1923, the Ottoman Empire conducted a policy of Genocide against the Christian population living within its extensive territory. The Sultan, Abdul Hamid, first put forth an official governmental policy of genocide against the Armenians of the Ottoman Empire in 1894. Systematic massacres took place in 1894-1896 when Abdul savagely killed 300,000 Armenians throughout the provinces. Massacres recurred, and in 1909 government troops killed, in the towns of Adana alone, over 20,000 Christian Armenians. 

This particular falsehood of peace and prosperity and the impression that there was diversity and equality for many peoples, is appalling when we consider that we have just come upon the 100th remembrance of the Armenian Genocide, committed by the Ottoman Empire…might Ms. Fiorina like to apologize to the Armenian (also Bulgarian and Greek) Christians for her comments?

Fiorina trashed Pamela Geller’s ‘Draw the prophet Muhammad’ cartoon contest saying: “It clearly was provocative, just like white supremacists demonstrating is provocative.”

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley doesn’t want Muslim terrorists from Gitmo in her state, but potential Muslim terrorists posing as refugees from Syria and Somalia are just fine and dandy

south_carolina_nsasSome are calling it the “height of hypocrisy,” bordering on demagoguery. Gov. Nikki Haley blasted possible White House plans to bring Guantanamo Bay prisoners to her state. Yet, at the same time, Haley was opening her arms wide to welcome so-called  “refugees” from jihadist strongholds in the Middle East and North Africa.

refugees-welcome
WND  (h/t Robert S) World Relief, a Christian aid agency that gets paid by the federal government to resettle refugees in the U.S. from places like Somalia and Syria, hatched plans more than a year ago to add Spartanburg, South Carolina, to the list of more than 190 U.S. cities receiving Muslim invaders.

The Muslim refugee program has been fraught with problems. Chief among them has been young men entering the U.S. as refugees and turning out to be Islamic terrorists. Some, such as the two Iraqis in Bowling Green, Kentucky, or the Uzbek man resettled in Boise, Idaho, harbored ill intent against America from day one.

But others, such as the six Somalis from Minnesota who were arrested after repeatedly trying to join ISIS, or the two brothers who bombed the Boston Marathon, were radicalized after they came to the U.S. as young boys.

CNYEjWgWgAAvOWT.png-large

According to a document released Aug. 11 by Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., at least 72 cases have been documented in just the past year of suspected.

Spartanburg residents were angry they had not been consulted about the new arrivals, nor were they given information on the impact refugees will have on schools, housing and labor markets. Not to mention the national security risks that almost nobody wanted to talk about.

Spartanburg’s resistance to the secret planting of refugees into their community has since spread to St. Cloud, Minnesota, Twin Falls, Idaho, and Fargo, North Dakota, with uprisings brewing in Ohio and Michigan as well.

Last week WND reported on the secretive nature of the process in which cities and towns are chosen for the resettlement of foreign refugees, many of them Muslims from areas known to be in upheaval fighting ISIS and other terrorist organizations.

Syria, Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, for example, all have devolved into civil sectarian strife, causing the displacement of large numbers of people. Many Christians have been driven from their homes in Iraq and Syria, yet the U.S. has been taking in mostly Muslims from these countries.

libya-evacuate_1834864i

The U.N. assigns refugees to various countries and it is the duty of the host country to screen them for criminal activity and ties to terrorist organizations. Kerry sent one of his top lieutenants, Assistant Secretary of State, Anne Richards, to Spartanburg earlier this week to try to quell the uprising. 

“I wanted a public hearing. Trey Gowdy wanted a public meeting. World Relief would not hold a public hearing,” the protester said. “So Anne Richard had to come down here to clean up their mess.”
gowdyseeksobamaimmig

Haley has come down on the side of the State Department and the refugees, saying she trusts the vetting process, despite hundreds of arrests and active investigations involving refugees or children of refugees across the U.S. She has chosen to believe the State Department over the FBI, which is responsible for screening the refugees and warned that in some cases it’s an impossible task.

Haley also seems content to ignore the warnings of Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee. McCaul has expressed serious concerns about the Syrian refugees, calling the program a possible “jihadist pipeline” to the U.S.

‘CALIPHORNIA’ Muslim leaders cry “Islamophobia” after police cancel Muslim day event in Darby Park

Muslim Warning Traffic SignMuslim community leaders questioned whether ‘Islamophobia’ was at play when Inglewood police canceled a Muslim gathering at Darby Park. At a news conference, community activist Najee Ali said the group received a permit from the city to host a picnic and ‘talent’ show, but it was suddenly revoked after the group released a promotional flier reading:

“Come share your ‘talent’ with your Muslim family. Interested in performing, contact Masjid Ibaadillah.”

Daily Breeze  “We believe that once police saw the flier with Muslim names and organizations attached, the red flags came up,” said Ali, director of Project Islamic H.O.P.E. (Obviously they were afraid that this ‘talent’ show might include bomb-making lessons for lone wolves)

terroristschool-vi

“As far as we understand, the permit was granted. All steps were taken to make sure we can have the event, so for police to cancel the event after the fact … we were blindsided.” Inglewood police did not respond to requests for comment.

“I’ve lived across the street from that park for 24 years, so I feel entitled,” Bakeer said. “We know that there are still people that harbor anti-Muslim beliefs and we really won’t accept it. If in fact someone took it upon themselves to discriminate against us, we want to confront that.”

“We’re just at a loss for words,” Blair said. “We have events all the time so want answers and to address any Islamophobia within the Inglewood Police Department if it exists.”

South Carolina town succeeds in keeping dead Muslims out of the neighborhood

Now that a South Carolina Zoning Board has rejected a plan for a Muslim cemetery in Rock Hill, perhaps they will find a way to keep living ones from moving in.

meme9928162f3d5cbd0e

Herald Online  After a contentious public hearing where several residents opposed a Muslim cemetery in a Rock Hill neighborhood – including one woman who admitted she was not being “politically correct” or “nice” but said she was scared of what would go on inside a proposed Muslim cemetery fence – the cemetery was shot down Tuesday night by the city’s zoning board of appeals.

Members of the Islamic Center of South Carolina, which operates a mosque in Rock Hill, want the cemetery to perform burials in traditional Islamic fashion (no caskets allowed), but the zoning board voted three for, three against, which left the measure defeated.

12-e138965958291711-1

The decision drew big applause from a packed City Council chambers filled with people against the cemetery. Muslim leaders were dismayed by not just the vote but what they said seemed like prejudice against Muslims. (Seemed like? No, IS)

Nazir Cheema, a Muslim Rock Hill resident and leader of the effort to build the cemetery said, “If this cemetery did not have the word Muslim, it would have been different. Are we not Americans? Do we not love America? (Nope)

muslim-burial

Muslims, rebuffed by both the city’s zoning appeals board and neighbors when trying to purchase property in a neighborhood and use it for a cemetery, said Friday they had talks with city officials about a portion of one of the city’s three cemeteries being sectioned off for Islamic burials.

However, whether that will happen – or even could – remains unclear. City officials have not confirmed the possibility of a Muslim spot on city property. The city has so far agreed to no solution involving city property.

A compromise on city property could solve a potentially thorny legal problem for the city, as the city’s zoning board rejected a Muslim cemetery on Bird Street near Anderson Road last month. Federal laws generally prohibit zoning decisions based on religion. Despite city planning officials being in support of issuing a zoning variance for the Bird Street property – and a warning from a city lawyer during a public meeting that later included private attorney/client meetings in closed session – the zoning board denied the Bird Street request.
