Releasing Jihadists who have weapons caches and other insane acts

Abdullah Alrifahe and Majid Alrifahe

Main Stream Media Remains Silent after Minnesota Releases a Jihadist with a Weapons Cache

A 27 May 2017 OneNewsNow article details how Minnesota officials have released a jihadist with a significant weapons stash:

“Despite the fact that two Muslim brothers were caught with a weapons arsenal of grenades, assault weapons and bomb materials in their car earlier this month, one of them was released – another blatant refusal to act on a potential threat, as witnessed prior to several recent jihadist attacks … including those in Manchester, England, and Orlando, Florida.

On May 11, 27-year-old Abdullah Alrfahe and his 26-year-old brother Majid Alrfahe were arrested in north Minneapolis after a good Samaritan asked them to stop throwing trash out of their car. From just outside a government-subsidized senior citizens’ complex at a nearby park, the elderly man was aggressively approached and threatened by the two Muslims, who scared him away while calling him the N-word and threatening him.

‘Inside the brothers’ car, police found a loaded AK-47, another rifle, a handgun, a grenade, large amounts of ammunition, and what would later be identified as bomb-making materials, including a drone,’ WCCO-TV, Minnesota’s local CBS station reported.

A government watchdog group divulged that this was not all police found while searching the hostile immigrants’ car.

‘They also found cellphones, computers and electronics equipment, including drone parts,’ Jihad Watch announced from the complaint.

The cache was so large and potentially hazardous that police called the bomb squad to handle matters.

‘Bomb squad personnel called to the scene noted that the large amount of ammunition and electronic devices could be used for bomb-making,’ Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer noted from the report.

Despite their weapons cache, ties to the Middle East and previous history of illegal possession of weapons, little is being done, with one of the brothers being released back onto the streets to continue amassing his suspected jihadist cache of weapons for later use.

‘Abdullah Alrifahe had recently been released from jail after serving time for a weapons conviction,’ WCCO’s Esme Murphy reported. ‘He is now facing a single felony weapons charge. His brother, Majid, has been released from jail and is facing a low-level misdemeanor charges, including disorderly conduct.’

After learning of the Minneapolis Police Department’s handling of the matter, the good Samaritan was outraged that those who have vowed to protect and serve the community are not doing more to protect law-abiding citizens from the men who have every indication of being Islamic militants with continued violence.

It is feared that the lack of attention to potential jihadist threats in Minneapolis will lead to another tragedy, as other suspected jihadists around the world have been ignored by local authorities before they unleashed their wrath on civilians.

‘The Manchester suicide bomber was reported to authorities repeatedly over a period of five years, as British citizens pointed out his radical activities … Nothing was done,’ WND reported. ‘It mirrors the script of previous jihadists who struck at San Bernardino, Orlando, Fort Hood, the Boston Marathon, London, Nice and many other places in the U.S. and Europe over the last three years.’

In the case of the Minneapolis suspects, it is noted that they could have been in the midst of plotting a serious attack.

‘The two men could have been planning an attack or transporting the weapons to a larger stockpile somewhere else,’ WND reported from law enforcement sources. ‘Either way, it’s imperative they remain in custody and undergo prolonged interrogation.’

Former Homeland Security officer and co-author of See Something, Say Nothing, Phil Haney, insists that police must press the suspects to find out from who they received their weapons, where they were transporting them and what mosque they attended. In addition to checking into their employment, banking and travel history, Haney maintains that police should also question them about the religious leaders they follow in person and online, as well as what contacts they have.

‘These guys are connected to a coalition of at least 35 components of ISIS around the world,’ Haney alerted WND. ‘ISIS is not just in Syria and Iraq, it’s a coalition of groups. It’s a pledge of loyalty not to ISIS necessarily, but the goals of ISIS, which is the establishment of Shariah law as part of the caliphate.’ “

To think that Minnesota officials are treating jihadists caught with weapons caches like jaywalkers does not inspire confidence in those officials. Additionally, to think that we value American lives so little as to let someone go when that group operates from a scripture that encourages the murder of non-believers, this also seems unbelievable.

Muslim Lawmaker Wanted Life Insurance Benefits Paid to Jihadi Families

One 25 April 2017 Fox News article explains how a Minnesota Muslim Democrat wanted to make us all support Islamic terrorism:

Minnesota bill HF1397 (‘Life insurance payments limited for beneficiaries of persons furthering terrorism’) authored by State Representative Joe Hoppe (R – Twin Cities) et al., soared in numbers of lawmakers in support and succeeded the House. But it met opposition from Muslim Representative Ilhan Omar (D – Minneapolis).

Ilhan Omar, a Somali woman who is touted as the nation’s first female Muslim lawmaker, currently presiding in the Minnesota House of Representatives, was one of two elected officials voting against the bill to deny life insurance benefits to radical terrorist policyholders who perpetrated tragedy resulting in loss of innocent lives. If you find that reprehensible, then we stand together with countless others. The entire notion defies logic, reason, and principles of humanity. With Ms. Omar’s preposterous perspective, not even a crumb of compunction is evident.

Not that we need it, but some punctuation was used to emphasize a trend among Muslim women. A Barbie-like doll has been created in the likeness of Representative Omar, marketed as ‘Hijarbie.“ The resemblance is uncanny. Conversely, Representative Omar resembles the anti-immigration enforcement stance as well. Having been vetted by the US government and cleared by the federal “resettlement program,” Ms. Omar landed in the largely Somali enclave in what is dubbed “Little Mogadishu” in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Intriguingly, Fox News reports indicate how Minneapolis is a relative conglomerate base for terror networks recruiting fanatical jihadis.

To be fair to Ms. Omar in the context of her inexplicable stance regarding insuring terrorists’ lives, the other lawmaker who sided with Omar is Representative John Lesch (D – St. Paul). In a final tally of 127-2, both legislators went against the overwhelming majority of other lawmakers who authored and passed the Minnesota statute that declared no life insurance company should be compelled to pay any monies to any self-destructing terrorist bent on obliterating Americans.”

Whether this acts as proof that Democrats have learned that Obamacare does not work or that Americans don’t appreciate having to support the murderers who attack them, it is good to see that only two slime balls voted for the issue.

Things that Trump has done right during May 2017

He Recognized the Christian Business Owner’s Plight

Although the 4 May executive order on religious freedom was weakened from the version leaked earlier during the year, this document at least provides an indication of a change in direction from previous administrations. Additionally, Trump’s executive order on religious freedom provides significantly more protection than what would have been provided under a Clinton administration.

With this information in mind, we might consider its possible effect on other branches of government. Whether that sentiment was picked up by the Kentucky Court of Appeals, we will never know. However, one thing has happened during the Trump administration that does not have to be the matter of speculation by Christians.  For the first of many cases involving claims of discrimination between a Christian business and a gay group, the Christian business (Blaine Adamson and his printing business, Hands On Originals) prevailed.

While this may be little solace for Baronelle Stutzman, Melissa Klein, Elaine Huguenin, Cynthia Gifford, Jack Phillips, Crystal Dixon, Mary O’Reilly, Betty Odgaard, Kevin O’Connor, Trish McGrath, Edie Delorme. and a few other people who have been bankrupted or otherwise ruined by gay activists, it is a place to start.

He Pled for Pastor Andrew Brunson

When President Trump hosted Turkish President Erdogan in the White House, both President Trump and Vice President Pence pressed for the release of Pastor Andrew Brunson, who had been arrested by the Erdogan government and imprisoned as a “national security risk.” Although friends and associates of the Brunsons say he’s being held on false charges. He and his wife were initially detained by authorities in the Turkish town of Izmir, where he has carried out his ministry for two decades.

As pointed out by several sources, several things complicate the the imprisonment of Brunson. First, Erdogan’s growing and unchallenged power after the attempted coup now focuses strongly on extraditing Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish cleric living in Pennsylvania whom Erdogan blames for orchestrating the coup attempt against him. Additionally, while Turkey has always played a central part in our relations with Russia and now works in the coalition against ISIS, there have been recent questions in both of these roles. As recently as the last of the Obama administration, Turkey has entertained advances from Russia. Multiple times during the past two years, Turkey has been accused of selling oil from ISIS.

He Understands the Importance of Uneasy Alliance

In a 17 May 2017 assessment of Trump’s Saudi speech, The Telegraph presented eight points from the speech. Here is the introduction and six of their points:

“US president Donald Trump delivered the first speech of his first foreign trip in Riyadh on Sunday, in which he called on Middle Eastern leaders to combat a ‘crisis of Islamic extremism’.

Mr Trump’s 36-minute address was the centerpiece of a two-day visit to Saudi Arabia, his first stop overseas as president.

During a meeting of more than 50 Arab and Muslim leaders, he sought to chart a new course for America’s role in the region, one aimed squarely on rooting out terrorism, with less focus on promoting human rights and democratic reforms.

  1. Society – ‘We are not here to lecture – we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship. Instead, we are here to offer partnership – based on shared interests and values – to pursue a better future for us all.
  2. Co-operation – ‘Today, we begin a new chapter that will bring lasting benefits to our citizens.’
  3. Terrorism – ‘This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations.

    ‘This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil.’

  4. Iran – ‘For decades, Iran has fuelled the fires of sectarian conflict and terror. It is a government that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing the destruction of Israel, death to America, and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room.’

    ‘Until the Iranian regime is willing to be a partner for peace, all nations of conscience must work together to isolate Iran, deny it funding for terrorism, and pray for the day when the Iranian people have the just and righteous government they deserve.’

  5. Human rights – ‘Our partnerships will advance security through stability, not through radical disruption. We will make decisions based on real-world outcomes – not inflexible ideology. We will be guided by the lessons of experience, not the confines of rigid thinking. And, wherever possible, we will seek gradual reforms – not sudden intervention.’
  6. Syria – ‘Responsible nations must work together to end the humanitarian crisis in Syria, eradicate ISIS, and restore stability to the region.’ “

Trump was elected as America’s President. As such, he has to deal with groups that don’t quite meet America’s standards in all aspects. They only have to share some common interests with us and are willing to work with us against those who would destroy us both. By making the speech above, he seems to have started working in America’s interests with those countries who share some common interests.

Hopefully, this alliance will pay greater dividends than the penalties incurred from previous administrations.


He Recognized the Tragedy in Manchester and Renewed Commitments to Israel

As with the speech in Riyadh, there were several key points to Trump’s speech in Israel:

  1. Humanity in Manchester – “I want to begin my remarks today by sending the thoughts and prayers of the entire American People to the victims of the terrorist attack in Manchester, in the United Kingdom, and our condolences to the many families who lost their loved ones. Dozens of innocent people and beautiful young children were savagely murdered in this heinous attack upon humanity.”
  2. Our Response – “I repeat again that we must drive out the terrorists and the extremists from our midst, obliterate this evil ideology, and protect and defend our citizens.”
  3. An Exposure to Holiness – I visited the Western Wall, and marveled at the monument to God’s presence and man’s perseverance – I was humbled to place my hand upon the wall and to pray in that holy space for wisdom from God.
  4. Adversity and a Promise – Down through the ages, the Jewish people have suffered persecution, oppression and even those who have sought their destruction. I make this promise to you: My Administration will always stand with Israel.
  5. Freedom in Israel – In Israel, not only are Jews free to till the soil, teach their children, and pray to God in the ancient land of their forefathers. But Muslims, Christians, and people of all faiths, are free to live and worship according to their conscience and to follow their dreams.
  6. A Challenge to Match – I call upon all people – Jews, Christians, Muslims, and every faith, tribe, and creed – to draw inspiration from this ancient city, to set aside our sectarian differences, to overcome oppression and hatred, and to give all children the freedom and hope and dignity written into our souls.

7,712 Terrorist Encounters in the US in 1 Year

On this graphic obtained by Breitbart Texas, note that most terrorist encounters are inside the state.

Breitbart Texas  Discovers FBI Data on 7,700+ Terrorist Encounters in USA in One Year

A 26 September 2016 Breitbart published the following article two weeks after bombs exploded in New York and New Jersey and one week after a Turkish man killed 5 in a Seattle-area mall.  In this article, Brandon Darby of Breitbart Texas discloses:

“Leaked documents with sensitive FBI data exclusively obtained by Breitbart Texas reveal that 7,712 terrorist encounters occurred within the United States in one year and that many of those encounters occurred near the U.S.-Mexico border. The incidents are characterized as ‘Known or Suspected Terrorist Encounters.’ Some of the encounters occurred near the U.S.-Mexico border at ports-of-entry and some occurred in between, indicating that persons known or reasonably suspected of being terrorists attempted to sneak into the U.S. across the border. In all, the encounters occurred in higher numbers in border states.

Some of the documents pertain to the entire U.S., while others focus specifically on the state of Arizona. The documents are labeled, ‘UNCLASSIFIED/LAW ENFORCEMENT SENSITIVE’ and contain data from the FBI-administered Terrorist Screening Center, the organization maintaining the Terrorist Screening Database, also known as the ‘Terror Watch List.’

The leaked FBI data are contained in a fusion center’s educational materials, specifically the Arizona Counter Terrorism Information Center’s (ACTIC) ‘Known or Suspected Terrorist (KST) Encounters Briefing’ covering from July 20 2015 through July 20 2016. The leaked documents are composed of 10 individual pages, but Breitbart Texas chose to release only nine of them due to page 10 containing contact information for ACTIC.

Please take time to refer to the Breitbart graphics at the bottom of the article or the Scribd site for Brandon Darby to see the graphics associated with the report.

Chilling Associated Details

The more disturbing connections become evident when you consider the many ways the FBI has so thoroughly provided reasons not to trust its fair enforcement of laws when its friends violate the law, the proof that Obama lied about criminal activity of Hillary, Obama’s track record on border enforcement, both Obama’s and Hillary’s announced plans for importing Syrian refugees, and the announced plans of ISIS to infiltrate the US through refugees .

A Preview of Future Treatment by Somali Muslims

Two Police walk by as Somali teens harass an American on American streets

Somali Teens and Adolescents Harass a Man

Crowd Passes Police As Youth Shout “I Hate Gay People” and “Black Power”

In the following video by Mike Cernovich, a group of immigrant teens and adolescents follow a man for several city blocks and verbally harass him.  While the video offers no reason for the abusers having called the man “gay,” there is no doubt that these abusers have only learned that no authority figure in America will stand up to them.

It might be educational to see if any of these abusers show up on the nightly news after some bar is shot up or a gay man is pushed from the roof of a building.

While I cannot pretend to support the gay lifestyle, nobody deserves this abuse (or the worse treatment we regularly see in videos originating in ISIS-controlled territory).

To any Muslim who might read this post, let me say this:  if you want respect, you need to show respect.  Although I am not saying that it is not your right to protest practices you stand against, I am saying that any protest must be civil and respectful.

What Can We Learn from This Video

Several things seem evident:

  • Somali Muslims are a large enough part of the Milwaukee that even the children see the area as their own
  • Americans of non-Muslim origin (especially those who are of lifestyles not accepted in the Quran) are seen as threats that must be driven out
  • Police have been cowed into not confronting verbal assault by Muslims
  • Adult Somali (seen on the street prior to the gang passing the police) either support or do not oppose the acts of the adolescents
  • With the success of the adolescents in driving out this “gay” man, the next confrontation they make on a non-muslim will be more intense

If anyone disagrees with this assessment, I would be curious to see what points that person presents.

Relevant Bible Verses

Christians will have to admit that, although the actions of the teens and children in this video violate many tenets of Christianity, misbehaving children are common to all families.

Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of discipline will remove it far from him. (Proverbs 22:15 NASB)

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. (Romans 3:23 NASB)

Nonetheless, it is incumbent on the mature Christians who see such folly to reprimand those caught up in this sin.

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; (2 Timothy 3:16 NASB)

If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector. (Matthew 18:15-17 NASB)

So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. (Ephesians 4:11-13 NASB)

Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:1-2 NASB)

Regarding the treatment of Christians by the world (including Islamists), we have to expect the following:

If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me. (John 15:18-21 NASB)

On Christians’ expectation of the treatment of the world, we must know their ways and anticipate them.

I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves. (Matthew 10:16 NIV)

Therefore, I inform all of you and encourage you to act accordingly.

Evangelical Leaders Join Pope in Speaking Out for Slain Nuns

Missionaries of Charity

The Islamist Attack

Nuns Administering a Retirement Home in Yemen are Murdered

A 4 March 2016 Catholic Herald article informs us that:

Four Missionaries of Charity have been shot dead in Yemen during an attack by gunmen on a Church-run retirement home.

The women religious, members of the congregation founded by Mother Teresa, were among 16 killed in an attack on a home for the elderly in the capital city Aden.

According to reports, two of the nuns were Rwandan and the others were Kenyan and Indian.

It is not yet clear who is behind the attack but the country is currently in the midst of civil war.

Catholic and Evangelical Response

As reported on RNS, the Pope called the four nuns murdered in Yemen “today’s martyrs.”  Additionally, RNS reports:

“Pope Francis said four nuns executed by gunmen in Yemen at a home where they cared for elderly and disabled residents are ‘today’s martyrs.’

His remarks on Sunday (March 6) about the brutal killings in the increasingly lawless country on the Arabian Peninsula came a day after he decried the ‘diabolical violence’ that also claimed the lives of a dozen others at the Catholic-run facility in the Red Sea port of Aden.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack on Friday, but the few remaining Christians and foreigners in Yemen have often been the targets of various Islamic factions in the country’s brutal civil war.”

As reported through an article by the Christian Broadcast Network, evangelical groups also condemned the attacks:

” ‘There is a legitimate attempt at genocide against religious minorities in the Middle East,’ Dr Ronnie Floyd, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, said in a released statement. ‘I call upon the United States government and other world leaders to respond more forcefully and immediately to protect these terribly endangered people.’
Similar sentiments were echoed by the World Evangelical Alliance.

‘We stand together fearless in the face of terror and request that global leaders recognize the existential threat against the world’s Christian communities and other religious minorities,’ WEF’s secretary general Bishop Efraim Tendero said.

‘God forbid we look back at history and know we could have done more to keep so many innocent people from dying,’ he continued. ‘Freedom of religion is a fundamental freedom and it is has never been under greater threat.’ “

European Union declares ISIS Actions to be Genocide, Obama Yawns

European Union Parliament Votes to Declare ISIS has committed Genocide against Christians

As reported by a 5 February 2016 article in World Magazine, the parliament of the European Union has done what the Obama administration still refuses to do:  acknowledge that the displaced or missing 1 million Iraqi Christians and 700,000 Syrian Christians have been victims of genocide perpetrated by ISIS.

The reason that I included the video above occurs at about the 2:07 mark, where the CBN reporter and Nina Shea of Freedom House share the following:

CBN reporter: “Shea is now calling on the White House to follow the European Parliament’s example and label what’s happening to Christians in the Middle East as genocide.”
Shea: “There’s a reluctance on the part of the administration to call it genocide against Christians.  They have told us (Freedom House) privately that they will call it genocide against Yazidis, but not Christians.”

Considering the remarks Obama made at the Baltimore mosque this week, his refusal to acknowledge the plight of Christians in the Middle East seems almost as offensive as his silence on the continued attacks by the Islamists he visited.

In addition to this, Obama both Neglects the Selected Mosque’s History …

You see, when Obama became the first sitting president to visit an American mosque, he did not select a peaceful mosque that has no ties to Islamist attacks on America.  He chose:

Additionally, as pointed out by Robert Kraychik of the Daily Wire, El-Sheikh has excused the Islamic murder of Jews while acting as the imam of Dar Al Hijrah Islamic Center in Fairfax Country, Virginia.  Still, in Obama’s world, ignoring the rising persecution of Jews during Holocaust Remembrance Day comes as second nature.

Admittedly, there were good points within Obama’s speech.  For once, he pressured Muslims to counter the anti-Western propaganda produced by Islamic groups.  He acknowledged that American forefathers extended the possibility of religious freedom to all (Christians, Jews, and all religions).  However, as pointed out by the Clarion Project, Mr. Obama continued to deny that Islamist ideological root the Islamist attacks against the West.

… He called the Law-Breaking Mosque an “All-American story”

Additionally, Obama not only ignored the history of the Islamic American Relief Agency and El-Sheikh.  He went on to call it an “all-American story.” 

If you haven’t heard of this story, don’t be surprised.  America’s newsrooms have done their best to hide the facts surrounding Obama’s mosque visit.  In a 4 February 2016 article, Terry Mattingly points out how the New York Times and the Washington Post make a valiant effort to cover for the president (although that effort was foiled by the Daily Caller).

The Center on Religion and Geopolitics Finds 15 Islamist Groups Ready to Replace ISIS

Groups ready to replace ISIS

Are Obama’s “Moderate” Syrian Rebels Among these 15?

A 21 December 2015 Daily Caller article quotes the Center on Religion and Geopolitics regarding the groups in the wings around ISIS:

“New research suggests that there are 15 major groups ready to take over if ISIS is destroyed.

report published Dec. 21 from the Tony Blair Faith Foundation’s Center on Religion and Geopolitics has found that ISIS is not the only group that could spell trouble for international security, as many as 15 others could be just as dangerous. The report also notes that ‘Sixty per cent of major Syrian rebel groups are Islamist extremists,’ throwing into doubt the veracity of so-called ‘moderate’ rebel groups operating within the war-torn country. Additionally, the study finds one out of three fighters, approximately 100,000 total, share ISIS ideological goals.”
