ISIS in America

No more Muslim immigration from jihad nations. Obama’s refugee migration policy must be stopped. This highlights the problem of the refugees.

There is no way to distinguish jihadis and Islamic supremacists from peaceful refugees.

“I applaud the FBI for today’s arrest of this dangerous subject. However, this is precisely why I called for a halt to refugees entering the U.S. from countries substantially controlled by terrorists,” Governor Abbott said in a statement to NBC5. “I once again urge the President to halt the resettlement of these refugees in the United States until there is an effective vetting process that will ensure refugees do not compromise the safety of Americans and Texans.

“Reports: Iraqi refugee arrested in Houston in alleged terror plot,” Dallas News, January 7, 2015

An Iraqi refugee has been arrested in Houston as part of an investigation into an alleged terrorist plot, Gov. Greg Abbott’s office confirmed to KXAS-TV (NBC5) Thursday.

Mesquite man admits to lying about ISIS terrorist allegiances

The man arrested has not been identified. but the governor’s office confirmed the man is believed to have ties to the Islamic State.

“I applaud the FBI for today’s arrest of this dangerous subject. However, this is precisely why I called for a halt to refugees entering the U.S. from countries substantially controlled by terrorists,” Abbott said in a statement to NBC5. “I once again urge the President to halt the resettlement of these refugees in the United States until there is an effective vetting process that will ensure refugees do not compromise the safety of Americans and Texans.

According to The Houston Chronicle, the man arrested, who had lived in Houston with his family for about four years, is believed to have provided support to terrorists and to have ties to ISIS.

The Chronicle reported the case also had connections to Milwaukee and Sacramento.

According to The Sacremento Bee, federal agents also made an arrest in Sacramento, though no details were immediately available.

Gina Swankie, a spokeswoman for the FBI’s Sacramento office, told the paper she could not discuss the matter.

“I can neither confirm nor deny any of the information in your email,” Swankie told the Bee.

Federal prosecutors in Sacramento also declined to comment.

According to the Bee, California Gov. Jerry Brown’s office did not immediately disclose whether officials in California had been briefed.

The country has been on high alert since 14 people were killed last month in San Bernardino by two ISIS supporters.

And in recent years, there have been several arrests of suspects on terrorism-related charges in Texas — including a Mesquite man who in October admitted to lying to the FBI about pledging his allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist group, federal authorities said.

Bilal Abood, 37, pleaded guilty to one count of making a false statement to a federal agency, and faces up to eight years in federal prison and a maximum fine of $250,000.

In June 2014, an Austin man who authorities alleged was flying to the Middle East was arrested at Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport. He was charged with attempting to provide material support to terrorists.

    The law has to change for these sub-species group. Its entire family, relatives, “friends” and anyone (Muslim) attached to it must also be arrested and questioned! Bunch them together in a “camp” until a decision is made what to do with them. If one “supports” (potential) terrorists, then considered guilty also! This is WAR!

    • wheezer7

      If they want out of the camp they can get a one-way ticket to whatever Crapistan they want to go to. We’ll send their stuff for free. All muslims must leave Western countries.

  • Voytek Gagalka

    If only O would ever listen to Governor Abbott! Conversely, he probably plots already (along with his Lynch-lady, Attorney General no less) on how to remove him from office.

    I do NOT want to see any violence, disrespect, bullying, or
    hate crimes against our Muslim Americans. I DO want to see a permanent ban on
    people immigrating from Muslim countries UNLESS they are Christians who can be
    vetted through their churches and affiliations with churches in USA or Western Europe!

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Anyone who will not take the oath of allegiance when randomly asked is suspect. Those taking the oath and breaking it, are to be dealt with as enemy agents operating in America, imprisoned then deported immediately. If American citizens, then a few penal colonies in remote areas will have to do.

    • Ari Chen

      Actually it’s pretty pointless because we are dealing with a sub-species group that have no problems LYING! Stealing and lying are very much in their parasitical blood… and killing also comes naturally with little persuasion.
      For instance, Immigration asks the dumbest questions something like: Do you have any intention of committing any acts of terror during your stay?
      I’d like to see the day come when we ask: Will you spit on this toilet book.. The Koran? Yes / No

      • whatevermeh

        @Ari that would be perfect! Anyone not willing …ship their crazy ass back!

  • Commieobamie

    A new term was coined by a woman today, added to moHOGmad demons, She added islamo moHOGmad demon (refujihadies). Very appropriate.
    REFUJIHADIES – use it, I already thanked her.

    If you know this FACT then it’s not so hard to understand!

    ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS!

    How do we know this? Simple, all muslims must strive to be
    the “Perfect” muslim and who is the muslims “Perfect” muslim role model? That’s
    right…Muhammad (may pain of death be upon him).

    So that being said all muslims must become murderers,
    rapists and pedophiles. This is NOT Islamophobia…this is Islamorealism! The
    fact that over 1400 years of Islamic terror has produced this track record
    which includes murdering over 270 million innocents and raping billions of
    people in the name of this Ideology “Islam” cannot be understated. That’s right
    “Ideology” NOT a religion. Again, NOT Islamophobia…but Islamorealism!

    This fact also silences the “Moderate Muslim,” you know the
    ones who won’t denounce Islamic extremism because it goes against their
    teaching of this Ideology. Therefore the fallacy of a “Moderate Muslim” is
    debunked. Of course if you really feel a Moderate Muslim exists, please start
    to refer to me as a “Moderate NAZI.”

    Islam is a system of life which has a judicial, social,
    political and geo-political objectives which include the conquest of territory.

    Again, NOT Islamophobia…Islamorealism!

  • Drew the Infidel

    This points up the main problem encountered by allowing so-called refugees in from terrorist countries. They have their ass over here and their heart over there.

  • Larry

    Myself I think that if they are caught dealing with or planning a terrest attack against our country then they should get a bullet between their eyes. A bullet is a lot cheaper than keeping them in prison for years.

  • notislam

    I would not only like these terrorists shot then and there–but putting the kybosh on open borders would be a GOOD THING.

  • scocope

    I’m a news junkie and can barely recall hearing about this story. I guess by not releasing the terrorist’s name or any pertinent information about him the Feds can keep the story out of the public’s view.

    Where this Governor of Texas is wrong, is the reality that there never will be a truly successful vetting process. Why? Because we never can determine who will convert from a nominal Muslim to religious zealot and jihadist, or whose children will decide to join the jihadist’s cause. Ignore the politically correct howls of wrath and refuse entry. Japan doesn’t permit Muslims to settle and Japan has proven very smart over this issue. Islam is a radical ideology whose ‘holy’ book should be banned as hate literature.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Governor Perry’s daughter is married to an iranian muslum. On governor Perry’s watch Texas schoolchildren were taught islamic propaganda.

      • Rob Porter

        I have long considered Rick Perry “as thick as an Australian brick”. Unless extremely ‘thick’, why would he have allowed his Muslim son-in-law to have an ounce of influence over education in Texas? Next thing Perry, like Obama, will tell us he’s a Christian – and then allow the spread of a savage, hate-filled, Jew and Christian hating ideology.

    Trying to get a mind set of muslim cultists and why they act this way with their insurrection and violence, and that means a majority of muslims, islamics, islamists, extremists, or whatever they call themselves, based on polls and constant stories of their allegiances and lack of, i remember documentaries of islanders brainwashed by the japanese tyranny during ww2 during the battle of saipan and how those convinced that americans would kill them jumped to their deaths from cliffs. This shows the extent that people brainwashed and ignorant will go to even killing themselves when convinced of fallacies. Some of these muslim cultists live in this country for years and still commit acts of violence showing how deep the brainwashing runs. Many suggest their self-segregation without attempting to assimilate serves to reinforce their brainwashed states of being. Ironically, these muslims cannot see how their use of so-called decadent american culture (e.g. computers and face book) is in itself decadent. But of course their kookran supplies their bipolar safety valve to ease their demented evil as just being good muslims.

  • Dr Rushdi Cader Watch

    We need to get rid of the fifth column Islamists who are sponging off us. Why do they live in the West when they oppose Western values?

    We have Muslim educators,
    academics and doctors in the US of immigrant familiies who promote hate against
    the West, and who are dedicated to promoting Islamism by diverting the blame
    from Islamist texts to blowback from ‘colonialism’ and ‘Zionism’. This is often done under the guise of civil rights and fighting ‘islamophobia’ for Muslims and supporting Muslim colonialism.

    Take Loon Watch whose 2 anonymous moderators ‘Garibaldi’ and ‘Ilisha’ claim to fight hate and ‘islamophobia’. This is done by promoting anti Zionist, anti West and

    anti-semitic hate and promoting worldwide conspiracies of muslim victimisation. Their veteran writer and commenter DrM of drmaxtor.blogspot.com is a notorious anti west, anti hindu anti-semite (real name Dr Rushdi cader) Dr Rushdi Cader supports a caliphate and Islamist laws, Loon Watch has denied the Armenian genocide and Loon Watch support Muslim colonialism whilst hypocritcally citing
    western colonialism as the cause of Islamist terrorism. The lies of
    these Islamists are breathtaking. Yazidies have been in the region longer than
    Muslims and are being wiped out. They are not western colonialists.
    Christians and Jews were in the Middle East before Islamic colonialsm.
    Ilisha doesn’t want Muslim countries to be like the West yet chooses to
    live there herself.

    Notice how Islamists prefer to live in the countries they claim are the root of
    evil. This proves their ulitimate goal is subversion and envy otherwise
    they would move to the countries they claim are victims of the west.

    DrM is careful to hide his hatred of the West preferring to spew his bile

    anonymously as DrM at his own blog drmaxtor.blogspot.com

    and since 2007 DrM has been a heavy contributor to Loon Watch and has ceased
    updating his own blog. He now posts regularly at Loon Watch. DrM does not reveal his real life identity at Loon Watch or at his blog where he claims to write about medical issues and ‘muslim’ issues. When his identity was made public Dr
    Rushdi made his 1DrM Disqus history private http://disqus.com/by/1DrM/

    Dr Rushdie Cader AKA Dr Maxtor AKA DrM is the founder of the Umma Clinic http://www.ummaclinic.org in California. which receives
    public funds He is a UCLA graduate Rumi Cader who is a professor at UCLA is on

    DrMaxtor real name is Dr Rushdi Cader

    Evidence of Dr Maxtor excusing Jihadism and promoting anti-semitism, anti-western, anti-hinduism all the while blaming Zionism for all the ills in Islamic societies can be seen at his own nazi like blog and his commenting history on Loonwatch.

    In one comment he says he wouldn’t treat Zionists. It is worth investigating how many Americans have died whilst being treated by him

    Dr Rushdi Cader is a member of the Mosque of Nasreen, San Luis Obispo http://mosqueofnasreen.org
    The hypocritical Dr runs an anti-semitic blog yet isn’t above taking freebies from Pro Israel Jews. This hypocritical islamist uses Facebook to promote his
    clinic. Mark Zuckerberg is a Jew with operations in Israel. Facebook – UMMACommunity Clinic https://www.facebook.com/pages/UMMA-Community-Clinic/155816815511

    Dr Rushdi Cader hosts his anonymous hate blog on Google’s blogger, whose founder is Jewish. Google has operations in Israel.

    The police who employed him have no idea of his underground Islamist activities. http://www.swattrauma.com/PRAC

    PM. Asalamu Aliakum! Well said. Glad to … who tried to hijack

    and
    misrepresent Islam for their Judeofascist masters.
