Build America Bust!

May 17, 2009

Cross posting from radiofreedaralharb.blogspot.com, the links will work here.  Yes its lazy, but am too tired to redo the work.  Go here for the google map with addresses, charges, bail/jail status, and court date info as well as a  link-o-rama of local coverage of the story.

Fairfax County Police led a massive bust near the popular and growing radical Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, VA. The strip mall down the street that is hangout of choice for the Islamist enclave surrounding Dar al-Hijrah is called Build America, thus the title Operation Build America. Time again we’ve seen the nexus between petty crime, organized crime, and jihadis. Hopefully this made a bigger impact than can be released to the public. You must click on the link to read the names and see pictures of those arrested. 16 of 27 middle eastern males between ages 18 and 48. Just goes to show that even though FXPD had a Jihadi mole, the boys in blue can still kick a little ass.

Fairfax County, home to Falls Church, is one of the major frontlines of Islamist aggression. We have:
The Dar al-Hijrah Wahabbi corridor which is a massive Islamist enclave built up around the mosque
Tax payer subsidized K-B.A. in Jihad via the Islamic Saudi Academy and George Mason (ISA is not taxed and Mason is public)that has already produced one convicted terrorist
Gitmo trials and Gitmo prisoners coming
And our first pro-jihad candidate

This bust is only the tip of the iceberg. Its a good start, but just that, a start.

Undercover Operation Nets 143 Criminal Charges

On Wednesday, May 6, over 135 law enforcement personnel participated in concluding a year-long undercover investigation. Operation Build America was launched in May 2008 to better understand the criminal activity taking place in and around the Build America Shopping Center. The shopping center is nestled in the Skyline community in the 3800 block of South George Mason Drive. Community concerns of illegal activities in the shopping center coupled with indicators that crime was in the upswing sprung the operation into motion.

The investigation successfully infiltrated several criminal organizations and businesses operating around the center. Undercover police officers identified nearly 40 people suspected of criminal activity that ranges from property crimes to crimes of violence. The undercover operation successfully recovered stolen firearms and illegal narcotics including cocaine and marijuana.

Collectively, 143 criminal arrest warrants and 15 search warrants were issued in this undercover operation.

The success of the operation can be attributed to the coordinated effort of several units and agencies:

* Fairfax County Police
o Criminal Intelligence Division
o Organized Crime and Narcotics Division
o Special Weapons and Tactics Team
o Mason, Sully, and Mount Vernon Police District Stations
* Town of Herndon Police Department
* Department of Public Safety Communications
* Fairfax County Code Enforcement Strike Team
* Fairfax County Office of the Sheriff
* City of Alexandria Police Department
* United States Marshals Service
* United States Postal Inspector’s Office
* Northern Virginia Cigarette Tax Board
* Northern Virginia Gang Task Force
* Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control

More Radicalism from Virginia House Candidate Omeish Revealed

Steve Emerson

Important to note: Omeish’s run follows CAIRs annual banquet last November that featured Con. Ellison exhorting muslims to run for any and all public offices.  Couple this with Nihad Awad +CAIR en masse attending the FXCO Planning Commission hearing on expanding the Islamic Saudi Academy Popes Head Rd. campus, and you’ve got Wahabbi  helping Wahabbi and Muslim Brotherhood helping Muslim Brotherhood.  Make no mistake Fairfax is the frontline. Emerson does a stellar job outlining Omeish’s nefarious background.

The last time the public got a good look at Esam Omeish, he was resigning from a Virginia immigration panel, claiming that the posting of videos showing him praising Palestinians who chose “the jihad way” to liberate their land was part of a smear campaign against him. Now Omeish is diving into the deep end of smear campaigns, offering himself as a candidate for a partisan legislative seat in Northern Virginia.

Omeish is among four Democrats vying to win their party’s nomination in District 35 in the Virginia House of Delegates. According to his campaign website, Omeish would focus on health care, traffic congestion and education if sent to Richmond. The site emphasizes his Northern Virginia roots and his medical career. It borrows themes from Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, including a logo emphasizing the letter “O” from his last name. Like Obama, Omeish also calls himself “a community organizer,” who “has served on the board of a number of non-profit organizations.” Omeish actually ran a national religious organization, yet there’s not one reference to the Muslim American Society (MAS) or his role as president anywhere on the campaign site. Neither is there any mention of Omeish’s 2007 appointment by Gov. Tim Kaine to the Virginia Commission on Immigration. Omeish no longer is listed as president on the MAS website, although it is not clear when his term may have ended or who succeeded him.

MAS was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, an 80-year-old Egyptian religious/political movement that seeks to make Islamic law, or Shariah, the controlling basis for society. As a college student, Omeish was president of the Muslim Students Association at Georgetown University. Like MAS, the student association was founded by Muslim Brotherhood members in the United States. Omeish insists any Brotherhood connections are a thing of the past. But an examination of his speeches and sermons obtained by the Investigative Project on Terrorism shows Omeish repeatedly praising Hamas leaders and speaking of using his religion to transform American society. Among the examples:

* In an April 2004 speech at a MAS conference in Overland Park, Kan., Omeish was asked about conditions in the Middle East and referred to Hamas founder Ahmed Yassin, who was killed in an Israeli attack a month earlier as “our beloved Sheikh Ahmed Yassin:”

* “Bullets and bombs are going off upon our brothers in Philistine [Palestine] and we are sitting here and saying (Arabic phrase – there is no power and no strength save in God), instead of feeling that this is our tax money and it is our dollars that killed our beloved Sheikh Ahmed Yassin (Arabic – may God have mercy on him). If we don’t take that responsibility we will never make the necessary changes that will prevent this administration or any administration that will come beyond it from doing the same thing to our beloved Muslims all over the world.”

In that same appearance, he urged the audience to integrate, rather than assimilate, arguing it was better to have Islam serve as a transformational force in America. It was time, he said, to take the bull by the horns in “making sure that I will not accept the evils of this society because they are putting down this society and I must do everything in my capacity to correct those ills. It goes towards perfecting the society so it can carry the light of Allah so it can establish a presence of what a perfect society under the guidance of Allah is.” Islam will either “become the dominant religion of the next century,” he said, or “we may be forcibly rejected from the West because of forces of intolerance, racism and bigotry are present and grow larger.”

* In March 2007, Omeish spoke at a dinner for Abdelhaleem Ashqar and Mohammed Salah. Prosecutors say the men “were active members in Hamas who engaged in the provision of logistical, financial, strategic and administrative support to further the objective of Hamas.” While they were acquitted of conspiracy charges, Salah was convicted of obstruction for lying about his support for Hamas. Ashqar was sentenced to 11 years in prison after being convicted of contempt for refusing to testify before a federal grand jury investigating Hamas support in the United States. Omeish did not refer to those convictions in his remarks: “My dear respected brothers and sisters, I would like for us to start by praying for Allah’s (UI few words) by congratulating my dear, beloved brother Abdelhaleem Ashqar, and my dear brother Mohammed Salah, who’s not with us, but our prayers and thoughts are for him.” Ashqar helped organize a secret 1993 gathering of Hamas members and supporters in America to discuss ways to derail the recently signed Oslo Peace Accord. Hamas opposed the peace deal because it moved toward a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and because members feared being marginalized if the secular Fatah movement controlled the first Palestinian Authority. Omeish also wrote a letter of support for Ashqar, urging the judge to give Ashqar a light sentence: “I have known Dr. Ashqar on a personal and community levels for a long time. He has been a folk legend for his resistance to testifying against anybody in what he perceives as a witch hunt for any supporters of the Palestinian rights.”

* In a January 2009 sermon at the Dar al-Hijrah mosque, Omeish lamented U.S. support for Israel during the recent fighting in Gaza. The U.S. ambassador stood in the way of a United Nations resolution condemning Israeli bombings, he said. The planes dropping those bombs were paid by U.S. tax dollars: “We need to understand our faith, understand its inherent message, understand the example of the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam and take forward the transformation, a real change within our community that embraces their identity as an American, but understand their mission in life is the values and the principles of Islam, which are compatible with their identity, and must understand that we cannot remain complacent. We cannot allow the status quo to continue. We need an American Islamic movement that transforms our status, that impacts our society, and that brings forth the change that we want to see.”

When it comes to the Muslim American Society, Omeish admits its founders were Brotherhood members. But any connections, he told reporters after resigning from the immigration board, have long since passed: “Today, MAS has no ties with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood does not exist as far as we know in the United States. We are staunchly American. We’re legal, transparent. Our transactions are to the full extent of the law. And we have no way or interest, really, to speak on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood overseas. We still view them as a good ally that our government engages in different capacities in the Middle East – in Iraq in the form of the Islamic Party, in Egypt in avenues of social reform, in different parts. And we think that they do hold a lot of stake in the shaping of the minds and hearts of Muslims in the Middle East. So it behooves as an American policy makers to engage those parties to be able to forge a more stable relationship with the Muslim countries.”

Finally, there are the speeches that prompted his resignation from the immigration board. In October 2000, Omeish congratulated Palestinians for “giving up their lives for the sake Allah.” Two months later, he praised those who learned ” the jihad way is the way to liberate your land.” He added, “We are telling them that we are with you and we are supporting you and we will do everything that we can, Insh’Allah, to help your cause.” After his resignation, Omeish denied his words condoned violence: “I speak out of the pulpit, and we do talk about jihad as a concept that is accepted Islamically, a concept that is in the broader sense is truly an honorable term that we can apply in our daily life. It means emotional, intellectual as well as physical struggle. And I think it’s important for us, if we want to engage the Muslim community, it’s not to allow ourselves to define them but to allow them to define themselves for who they are. Jihad does not mean holy war. Jihad does not mean Crusades. In fact, even if you look historically, the way where these terms were developed, they never had that connotation in Islam.”

Campaign finance reports and district demographics indicate Omeish may be facing an uphill climb in his first bid for public office. He may be helped by MAS’ well organized voter registration and get-out-the-vote machine, driven by everything from its Freedom Foundation to Boy and Girl Scout troops. But two of his opponents are better financed, and one seeks to make a little history of his own. Mark Keam, a former chief counsel for Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on the Senate Judiciary Committee, leads the pack in fundraising and seems to have deeper political connections as a result of his experience. Keam, who was born in Korea, is trying to become the first Asian-American elected to Virginia’s legislature. He raised $123,000 in the first quarter and had more than $100,000 in the bank when April began. In addition, Roy Baldwin, a local attorney, raised $76,500 in the first quarter including a $30,000 personal loan. Attorney John Carroll collected $43,000 in the first quarter. Omeish, a surgeon, collected about $16,000 and loaned his campaign $45,000. A delegate is paid $17,640 per year. The primary is June 9th.

Virginia is for Gitmo Lovers

May 1, 2009

We will know more about sex offenders than we will about the Gitmo detainees coming to the US.

In McLean,  where you can’t throw a rock without hitting a spook, one of the Uyghers will be hosted, while other Jihadis will be sprinkled throughout the NoVa area to ensure everyone gets  their mandatory multi-cultural exposure to Islamist aggression.

I am interested to see how their cultural assimilation will go.  How will a group that ripped a TV off the wall because an ad featured a woman with exposed arms (not Michelle Obama)  deal with sun dresses in Old Town,  George Mason University non-MSA co-eds,  and the abundance of female soccer players, northern Virginia swim league, joggers, and outdoor enthusiast…God forbid they were let loose around the beautiful people that comprise  Hill staffers.

What can we surmise will occur?  How about a CAIR/Leftist combo propaganda extravaganza?, so odds are these guys will be kept on a leash, at least long enough for  photo-ops, sob stories, and lawsuits.

I disagree with the puke’s analysis in the video, but it documents the story of these innocent criminals…gag.
