A 20-year-old New York City college student has been arrested for plotting a pressure cooker bombing attack in the city to support Islamic State (ISIS), as revealed in Brooklyn court documents published on Tuesday.

The student, Munther Omar Saleh, was arrested along with another man on Saturday morning when they got out of their car and charged at a surveillance vehicle that had been following them, reports Reuters.

Saleh, who hails from Queens, invested hours researching online how to build a lethal pressure cooker bomb stuffed with nails and other shrapnel according to federal agents.

He also read accounts from the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, in which an attack with two pressure cookers at the finish line murdered three and wounded over 260 others.

The student vocally supported ISIS online, and in one Twitter post said of the Al Qaeda terrorist organization “I fear AQ could be getting too moderate.” He likewise praised terrorist attacks carried out by ISIS, as well as the lethal January attack on the Charlie Hebdo headquarters in Paris.

Saleh evidently began his attempts to translate his online terrorism craze into real world action back in March, when a police officer saw him on successive days walking about the George Washington Bridge between New Jersey and New York just looking around, apparently planning an attack.

Officers interviewed Saleh following his suspicious behavior, and he denied sympathizing with ISIS while allowing them to examine his computer.

On the computer, investigators found ISIS propaganda according to the court papers.

Saleh is enrolled at a college which specializes in aeronautics.

The Islamization of New York

by

Bill de Blasio has added two Muslim holidays to the school calendar, but isn’t on board with adding the Hindu festival of Diwali. As usual, this isn’t about diversity, it’s about Muslim Privilege.

A spokesman for the Indian community appealed to the mayor to recognize the Hindu holiday.

“We are disappointed. We’ve been trying for a long time … It’s very important for the community,” said Dr. Shashi Shah of the Association of Indians in America.

But he said he’d move forward with closing schools for Lunar New Year and for Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, Muslim holy days.

“It is complicated in terms of logistics and school calendar and budget. But it’s something I want to get done in a reasonable time frame,” he said.

So why two Muslim holidays and no Hindu holidays? Same reason Mayor William Wilhelm Jr. is ready to take apart New York City’s counterterrorism efforts. Here’s a snapshot of the Islamization of New York.

Brooklyn_Muslims_Little_Bangladesh_1-560x311

In the above photograph taken on McDonald Avenue in the heart of Brooklyn sits the community often referred to as “Little Bangladesh.”

What is not in photograph?  Women, little girls, nor is there an American in sight, male, female, Black, White, Korean, Chinese, Italian, Polish, Jewish, Catholic, Baptist, Protestant, only Muslims.

A few blocks over is Coney Island Avenue where from Church Avenue down to until the middle of the Coney Island Avenue between Avenue J and K is another Muslim neighborhood or an extension of Little Bangladesh, I suppose.  This community although Muslim is a Pakistani and I suspect Afghani community.

In the center of Coney Island Avenue between Avenues H and I is a movie theater.  Just a few doors past this theater, a transformation of the neighborhood begins almost as if someone drew an imaginary line Coney Island Avenue transforms from a Muslim community to Jewish.

On the Jewish side of town, in addition to the yeshivas, synagogues, delis, bakeries and other Jewish businesses, one can find every ethnicity traveling, working and socializing in the area.  However, as with Little Bangladesh, the “Muslim” side of Coney Island Avenue does not appear to be as neighborly.  Just saying.

Last Friday, I went to a market to shop for Super Bowl Sunday.  It has been several months since I shopped there.  During my visit last summer, the owners were Dominican.  The new owners are Muslim.  Incredibly enough or not, after all this is a sanctuary city, the old management’s consisted of people from the Caribbean, Central and South America.  Today, the Caribbean, Central and South American staff with the exception of three or four no longer work at the market.   The Muslim owners replaced the staff with Muslims from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Africa all of whom wear these thick off-white gloves when handling food products at the butcher’s section, deli and cash register.

Surprisingly, today the Muslim owned supermarket sold pork chops, ribs and ham as did the butcher and the deli section of the supermarket.  Three months from now, there will not be a strip of pork on the premises.

While in the area, I decided to stop by the deli two blocks from the market to pick up a salad on my way home.  Imagine my shock when I realized that the deli is also under new management and its owners are two Muslims whom I noticed sell hookah pipes on the premises.

Not able to take much more, I headed home disappointed but not before I made the error of taking a route home that I rarely travel only to find out that seven blocks from my home, what was formerly a grocery store is now a mosque.

What is Bangladeshi immigration bringing to America? Aside from a plot to bomb the Federal Reserve by a Bangladeshi settler in Queens, there is the Bangladeshi emphasis on beating women.

About 87 per cent of Bangladeshi married women are abused by their husbands.

The survey found that domestic violence is present in most Bangladeshi households. Last year, 77 per cent of respondents admitted that they had been abused. Of these, 50 per cent had sustained serious injuries, but one in three women refused to go to hospital for fear of retaliation by the husband.

 

#Iran: New Bill to Protect Children Allows Men to Marry Adopted 13-Year-Old Daughters

By

"If only I was a Muslim."

“If only I was a Muslim.”

Sometimes it seems like there isn’t much morality in Islamic morality. But we have to respect different cultures and different points of view. Even when they’re marrying their adopted 13-year-old daughters.

Parliamentarians in Iran have passed a bill to protect the rights of children which includes a clause that allows a man to marry his adopted daughter and while she is as young as 13 years.

Shadi Sadr, a human rights lawyer with the London-based group Justice for Iran, told the Guardian she feared the council would feel safe to put its stamp of approval on the bill while Iran’s moderate president, Hassan Rouhani, draws the attention of the press during his UN visit to New York.

“This bill is legalising paedophilia,” she warned. “It’s not part of the Iranian culture to marry your adopted child. Obviously incest exists in Iran more or less as it happens in other countries across the world, but this bill is legalising paedophilia and is endangering our children and normalising this crime in our culture.”

She added: “You should not be able to marry your adopted children, full stop. If a father marries his adopted daughter who is a minor and has sex, that’s rape.”

That’s okay. The media will just explain that ones marrying their 13-year-old daughters are the moderates. The extremists marry 10-year-olds.

As many as 42,000 children aged between 10 and 14 were married in 2010, according to the Iranian news website Tabnak. At least 75 children under the age of 10 were wed in Tehran alone.

But… wait this all has a perfectly sensible reason.

According to Sadr, officials in Iran have tried to play down the sexual part of such marriages, saying it is in the bill to solve the issue of hijab [head scarf] complications when a child is adopted.

An adopted daughter is expected to wear the hijab in front of her father, and a mother should wear it in front of her adopted son if he is old enough, Sadr said.

It would be immoral for her not to wear a hijab in front of her adopted father. Let’s marry her off to him instead.

Iran ran into this problem when it tried to use temporary marriage to deal with the problem of co-ed classes in universities because that would allow men and women to work together in close quarters while technically being married.

A similar problem in Saudi Arabia led to the infamous breastfeeding Fatwa.

Back in May 2007, Dr. Izzat Atiya, head of Al Azhar University’s Department of Hadith, issued a fatwa, or Islamic legal decree, saying that female workers should “breastfeed” their male co-workers in order to work in each other’s company.

“A woman at work can take off the veil or reveal her hair in front of someone whom she breastfed.”

Islamic morality. It’s morality as designed by crazy perverts.
