A Deadbeat, A Slumlord, And A 9/11 Truther, Oh My!

Did the wheels just fall off the Ground Zero mosque wagon?

Sharif El-Gamal, developer of Ground Zero mosque, evicted from SoHo office for racking up back rent

The developer of the Ground Zero mosque is being bounced from his SoHo office, the Daily News has learned.

Sharif El-Gamal, who runs the real estate firm Soho Properties and is heading the project two blocks from Ground Zero, was slapped with eviction proceedings last month after tallying up $39,000 in back rent, a Manhattan Housing Court filing shows.

The management company that runs 552 Broadway, where El-Gamal leases space, said in the filing that he was warned in July and given until mid-August to pay up.

But when the August deadline passed, management company Royal Crospin Corp. filed the eviction notice.

It’s not the first time El-Gamal’s company has fallen behind in rent.

Union City mayor heaps scorn on imam for being ‘slumlord’

Union City Mayor Brian Stack branded the imam proposing to build an Islamic cultural center and mosque near Ground Zero one of the worst landlords in Union City at a press conference yesterday, according to today’s Jersey Journal.

The press conference – held in front of 2206 Central Ave., a 16-unit building owned by Feisal Abdul Rauf – comes on the heels of a lawsuit against Rauf the city filed in Hudson County Superior Court on Monday.

“I think we are trying to send a message here, not only to Rauf but also to other slumlords, that in Union City you are not welcomed here,” Stack said.

Associate of NYC Mosque Imam Calls 9/11 Attacks an ‘Inside Job’

A founding member of an organization run by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the driving force behind the planned mosque near Ground Zero, claims that the 9/11 attacks were an “inside job” and that Muslims have been made scapegoats, The Post has learned.

Faiz Khan — who has preached at least twice at the former Burlington Coat Factory building, the site of the proposed mosque — was for years Rauf’s partner in the American Society for the Advancement of Muslims, which is dedicated to promoting a better understanding of Islam.

Khan also serves on the advisory board of Muslims for 9/11 Truth and is a founder of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth, known as MUJCA.

On MUJCA’s Web site, Khan wrote that “the inescapable fact [is] that 9/11 was an inside job.”

This whole “mosque controversy” is starting to smell like a barrel of rotten fish. Seriously, the Three Stooges here are way out there in the shadows of the fringe, already barely one step ahead of the law themselves. Where the hell are these clowns going to get $100 million to build a 13 story “Islamic community center”? It looks more and more like this this is nothing more than an elaborate scam.

Imam Rauf May Never Have Intended to Build Ground Zero Mosque

The imam of the Ground Zero mosque may never have had any real intention to follow through with building it. Terrorists and radicals can be very smart, calculating people, and it is certainly possible that this was actually a well-orchestrated plan meant to rile up and recruit more radicals willing to undermine America, at very little cost. That may explain why he has not even begun to raise money for this project.

. . .

This entire situation has been created by this imam, by his insisting that a mosque be built so close to Ground Zero. Given his radical statements, his veiled threats of violence and aggression against Americans if the mosque is not built at Ground Zero, and the fact that the imam has raised virtually nothing to pay for the center, it seems that there may never have been any real intention to follow through with its building. The radicals get much more out of the mosque not being built than if it is built. The radicals can now use the fact that many Americans are against building the mosque to recruit more zealots to mount campaigns against America, and even to try to carry out violent attacks.

Now it all makes sense, certainly a lot more sense than this Ground Zero mosque project actually ever being built by these three Islamic losers.

Yes They Can, But No They Shouldn’t

At first, Obama confidently wades into the Ground Zero mosque controversy with carefully scripted remarks to a Muslim audience.

And then, the next day, after seeing the gap down in his approval poll numbers, Obama and his administration frantically tried to walk back his initial comments.

As usual, Charles Krauthammer nails it.

Sacrilege at Ground Zero

Location matters. Especially this location. Ground Zero is the site of the greatest mass murder in American history — perpetrated by Muslims of a particular Islamist orthodoxy in whose cause they died and in whose name they killed.

Of course that strain represents only a minority of Muslims. Islam is no more intrinsically Islamist than present-day Germany is Nazi — yet despite contemporary Germany’s innocence, no German of goodwill would even think of proposing a German cultural center at, say, Treblinka.

Which makes you wonder about the goodwill behind Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf’s proposal. This is a man who has called U.S. policy “an accessory to the crime” of 9/11 and, when recently asked whether Hamas is a terrorist organization, replied, “I’m not a politician. . . . The issue of terrorism is a very complex question.”

America is a free country where you can build whatever you want — but not anywhere. That’s why we have zoning laws. No liquor store near a school, no strip malls where they offend local sensibilities, and, if your house doesn’t meet community architectural codes, you cannot build at all.

These restrictions are for reasons of aesthetics. Others are for more profound reasons of common decency and respect for the sacred. No commercial tower over Gettysburg, no convent at Auschwitz — and no mosque at Ground Zero.

Build it anywhere but there.

Read the whole thing.

Sure, Feisal Abdul Rauf and his mysterious backers have ever legal right to build a mosque near Ground Zero, but why would they want to? If their goal is a gesture of interfaith goodwill, you can clearly tell from the reaction that that excuse isn’t going to even remotely fly. So why are they, so far, insisting on building a mosque at this particular location? It’s because building a mosque this close to Ground Zero is, straight up, a monument to the Islamic victory on 9/11, in your face infidels! Don’t believe that? Google Dar al-Islam/Dar al-Harb.

Meet The World’s Most Dangerous Dishwasher

Oh look, it’s yet another American Muslim gone bad.

From dishwasher to al Qaeda leadership: Who is Adnan Shukrijumah?

He was born in Saudi Arabia and spent much of his youth in New York and south Florida. Then he vanished.

Investigators now allege that Adnan Shukrijumah has risen to a key position in al Qaeda’s leadership.

The FBI says that after he left America, Shukrijumah started off as an al Qaeda dishwasher, doing menial tasks at training camps.

But he’s much more than a dishwasher now, according to investigators.

“It’s like any other business. He would be equated with being the chief of operations,” says Brian LeBlanc, a special agent for the FBI.

As the alleged director of al Qaeda’s overseas operations, investigators believe he is “extremely dangerous,” LeBlanc says.

“He may not be someone who’s going to come into the United States to conduct the attack, but what makes him more dangerous is he’s out there plotting the attacks and recruiting people to actively do that,” LeBlanc says.

The breakthrough came when LeBlanc, an FBI counter-terrorism agent, linked Shukrijumah to the thwarted New York subway suicide mission last fall — the biggest post-9/11 terror investigation.

Najibullah Zazi and Zarein Ahmedzay admitted they planned to blow themselves up using homemade bombs.

Prosecutors say it was Shukrijumah who called the shots — probably from somewhere along the Afghan-Pakistan border.

“[Shukrijumah] was the one that convinced … them to come back to the United States and conduct the attack here,” LeBlanc says.

But Shukrijumah’s mother — who did not wish to be named in order to protect her privacy — says authorities are using her son as a scapegoat.

“That is not my son. My son is not a violent person. He is very kind, generous,” she says.

Shukrijumah — the eldest son of a Saudi Imam — came to America as a young child.

Let’s Play Guess The Religion

Hmmm, Police in France kill a fleeing criminal and then the local “youths” proceed to riot and rampage for several nights of carbeque, sound familiar? It should. But do these “youths” belong to a particular religion? Well, you sure couldn’t tell by reading almost all of the news coverage. Are the media afraid of reporting the truth about this particular religion?

Youths arrested in Grenoble on suspicion of shooting at police

A French regional security official has said four people have been detained on suspicion of firing on police during clashes between youths and officers in Grenoble. The official said seven were also detained for carrying illegal weapons. The suspects were taken into custody early yesterday. Clashes broke out on Friday night in the south-eastern French city after a local resident suspected in the armed robbery of a casino was killed while fleeing police. Rampaging youths torched cars and shot at police. Rioting continued on a lesser scale through Saturday night. No injuries were reported.

Can you guess the “youth’s” religion yet? No? Well, try these news reports.

Meet Al Qaeda’s Lifestyle Coach

What do the 9/11 hijackers, Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter, and Farouk Abdul Mutallab, the Underwear Bomber, all have in common, besides being fanatical Muslim terrorists? It turns out that they were all big fans of radical Islamic al Qaeda imam Anwar al-Awlaki, terrorist lifestyle coach, currently holed up in Yemen.

Fort Hood shooting: Texas army killer linked to September 11 terrorists

Hasan, the sole suspect in the massacre of 13 fellow US soldiers in Texas, attended the controversial Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, in 2001 at the same time as two of the September 11 terrorists, The Sunday Telegraph has learnt. His mother’s funeral was held there in May that year.

The preacher at the time was Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born Yemeni scholar who was banned from addressing a meeting in London by video link in August because he is accused of supporting attacks on British troops and backing terrorist organisations.

Hasan’s eyes “lit up” when he mentioned his deep respect for al-Awlaki’s teachings, according to a fellow Muslim officer at the Fort Hood base in Texas, the scene of Thursday’s horrific shooting spree.

As investigators look at Hasan’s motives and mindset, his attendance at the mosque could be an important piece of the jigsaw. Al-Awlaki moved to Dar al-Hijrah as imam in January, 2001, from the west coast, and three months later the September 11 hijackers Nawaf al-Hamzi and Hani Hanjour began attending his services. A third hijacker attended his services in California.

Hasan was praying at Dar al-Hijrah at about the same time, and the FBI will now want to investigate whether he met the two terrorists.

Charles Allen, a former under-secretary for intelligence at the Department of Homeland Security, has described al-Awlaki, who now lives in Yemen, as an “al-Qaeda supporter, and former spiritual leader to three of the September 11 hijackers… who targets US Muslims with radical online lectures encouraging terrorist attacks from his new home in Yemen”.

Investigators Recover SIM Cards During Searches of Homes Tied to Abdulmutallab

On Monday, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula reportedly claimed responsibility for the attempt.

Investigators believe the suspect was radicalized before he went to Yemen, sources told Fox News. According to one source, Abdulmutallab traveled to Yemen sometime near the end of last year or early this year. He was there for several weeks or months, and investigators believe Abdulmutallab was “vetted for the mission” while in Yemen.

Investigators are still working to confirm whether the suspect was trained in Yemen and received explosive material there. Of the device, one source said it’s “very likely that it did” come from Yemen.

The suspect also traveled within the last year to England, the Netherlands, and one other unnamed European country, Fox News has learned. He was also in Nigeria and Togo. One source said he “bounced around a bit.”

Evidence collected shows that Abdulmutallab also was a “big fan” of radical imam Anwar Al-Awlaki, as Web traffic shows Abdulmutallab was a follower of Awlaki’s blog and Web site.

So far no evidence has been revealed that the two exchanged e-mails or talked one-on-one. Awlaki is an American born in New Mexico, now living in Yemen, and is the same imam from whom alleged Fort Hood shooter Malik Nidal Hasan sought spiritual advice.

Well, it appears someone in the U.S. government had the right idea but didn’t use the right tools. It’s pretty clear by now that Anwar al-Awlaki is a top tier worldwide al Qaeda suicide jihadi organizer, already directly or indirectly responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans. Killing or capturing this vile Islamist dochebag, before he can do more damage, should be one of our top priorities in the “criminal investigation” of these pesky, ongoing “man caused disasters”.

However, apparently the recent airstrikes didn’t kill al-Awlaki or even come close, too blunt an instrument wielded with insufficient intelligence. They say the first question a President asks when there’s trouble somewhere in the world is “where are the carriers”? To me, that’s the wrong question, I would be asking, where’s SEAL Team Six?

/at least the terrorism dots are so damn large now in this case that maybe even Obama and Janet “Jumbo Crayons” Napolitano can figure out how to connect them

Domestic Contingency Operation

Remember when the Obama administration replaced the phrase “global war on terror” with the ridiculously politically correct euphemism “overseas contingency operation”? Well, here’s a counterterrorism operation that could have occurred anywhere in Afghanistan or Iraq, but it didn’t, this counterterrorism operation (but don’t dare call it that) took place today in Dearborn, Michigan, USA.

Detroit mosque leader killed in FBI raids

The leader of a Detroit mosque who allegedly espoused violence and separatism was shot and killed Wednesday in an FBI gun battle at a Dearborn warehouse.

Luqman Ameen Abdullah, imam of the Masjid Al-Haqq mosque in Detroit, was being arrested on a raft of federal charges including conspiracy, receipt of stolen goods, and firearms offenses.

Charges were also filed against 11 of Abdullah’s followers. Eight were in custody Wednesday night awaiting detention hearings today; three remained at large.

A federal complaint filed Wednesday identified Abdullah, 53, also known as Christopher Thomas, as “a highly placed leader of a nationwide radical fundamentalist Sunni group.” His black Muslim group calls itself “Ummah,” or the brotherhood, and wants to establish a separate state within the United States governed by Sharia law, Interim U.S. Attorney Terrence Berg and Andrew Arena, FBI special agent in charge in Detroit, said in a joint statement.

“He regularly preaches anti-government and anti-law enforcement rhetoric,” an FBI agent wrote in an affidavit. “Abdullah and his followers have trained regularly in the use of firearms, and continue to train in martial arts and sword fighting.”

The Ummah is headed nationally by Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rap Brown, who is serving a state sentence for the murder of two police officers in Georgia.

Early Wednesday afternoon, FBI agents and local police from the Joint Terrorism Task Force surrounded a warehouse and trucking firm on Miller Road near Michigan Avenue where Abdullah and four of his followers were hiding, said Special Agent Sandra Berchtold, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Detroit.

When agents entered the warehouse, four of the men obeyed orders to surrender but Abdullah opened fire and was shot to death, Berchtold said. An FBI dog was also shot and killed, she said.

Through a 45-page complaint filed in the case alleges Abdullah “calls his followers to an offensive jihad” and preaches that every Muslim should “have a weapon and should not be scared to use their weapon when needed,” charges in the case to not include terrorism or national security crimes.

So, Abdullah and his nationwide group Ummah advocate violent “offensive jihad” against the United States to establish a separate state governed by Sharia law, they engage in active weapons acquisition and training and encourage every Muslim to have a weapon and be prepared to use it in furtherance of the jihad, and today he kills an FBI dog while shooting at law enforcement. Phew, I’m sure relieved that there was no no need to file terrorism or national security crime charges against anyone in this case. That might look like we’re acknowledging that we have some type of larger problem with Muslim jihadis within our own borders.
