After being part of a jihad terror group, Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab never should have been allowed to return to the United States. Those groups are at war with the U.S. Joining them should be considered an act of treason and prosecuted accordingly. Instead, Obama is bringing in huge numbers of additional refugees, among whom there will be an untold number of jihad killers.

This is the second Muslim refugee arrested in the USA in as many days. Stop the Muslim refugee program. Now. Call your Congressmen.


“Syrian Refugee in Calif. Arrested on Terror Charges Identified,” by T. Grant Benson, Breaking911, January 7, 2016:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A Sacramento resident was arrested today on a federal charge of making a false statement involving international terrorism. Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, 23, is charged in a criminal complaint that was unsealed today in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California following his arrest.

“Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab allegedly traveled overseas to fight alongside terrorist organizations and lied to U.S. authorities about his activities,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin. “The National Security Division’s highest priority is protecting the nation from terrorism, and we will continue to hold accountable those who seek to join or aid the cause of terrorism, whether at home or abroad.”

“According to the allegations in the complaint, the defendant traveled to Syria to take up arms with terrorist organizations and concealed that conduct from immigration authorities,” said U.S. Attorney Wagner.

According to the complaint, Al-Jayab is a Palestinian born in Iraq, who emigrated from Syria to the United States as a refugee in October 2012. Between October 2012 and November 2013, while living in Arizona and Wisconsin, he communicated over social media with numerous other individuals about his intent to return to Syria to fight for terrorist organizations. In those communications, according to the complaint, Al-Jayab discussed his previous experience with firearms and with fighting against the regime in Syria. On Nov. 9, 2013, he flew from Chicago to Turkey, and then traveled to Syria. Between November 2013 and January 2014, Al-Jayab allegedly reported on social media that he was in Syria fighting with various terrorist organizations, including Ansar al-Islam, a designated foreign terrorist organization since 2004. He returned to the United States on Jan. 23, 2014, and settled in Sacramento.

The complaint alleges that on October 6, 2014, Al-Jayab was interviewed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and responded in the negative to numerous questions, including whether he had ever been a member of any rebel group or militia; whether he had ever provided material support for any person or group engaged in terrorist activity; and whether he had ever been a member of a group, or assisted in a group, which used or threatened the use of weapons against others. Al-Jayab also allegedly stated during the interview that he had traveled to Turkey in late 2013 and early 2014 to visit his grandmother. The complaint alleges that all of those answers were materially false….

    obama is importing the JV team to our country.
    And deceitfully as Satan, angling to disarm us.
    I actually watched his “town hall” on guns last night.
    He literally doesn’t know how to have a discussion without lying.
    He said the NRA is “funded by the gun manufacturers.”

    When is the last time anyone saw a nationally televised “town hall” in Fairfax, Virginia?
    obama wanted to be able to point across the room and say the NRA “is right down the street — why aren’t they here”? Wow, that really makes the case, Charlatan.
    He said the so-called Jade Helm military operation in the Southwest last summer was blown all out of proportion by Americans who think he’s “out to take their guns.” He said Jade Helm was simply a training plan “to make sure if people are sent overseas, that they can handle it.”
    He should be impeached on the plainly transparent deceit of that statement alone.
    He said he “respects” the Second Amendment. And he “respects” Americans’ rights to own guns for hunting and sporting. Not a word about the real and singular purpose of 2A — as a hedge against tyrants like himself!

    Deport immediately, incarcerate indefinitely if it ever shows up in America again.

      Obama has brought almost 1 million of them into the U.S. We’re going to start seeing more and more violence this year because they think they’ve been called into action. Our FBI and police are already overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of trying to keep up and have said that they CAN’T. There are open cases in all 50 states where they’re being watched. I truly don’t think they should be allowed into this country.

        Prevention is always better than cure, we are stuck having to play the hand we’re dealt. So, it will be very necessary to get the attorney general and legal industry employees, elected or hired, to enforce existing laws, not bending them to accommodate shari’a or anything else. It would also be very desirable to have the lame stream media reporting rather than censoring or spinning events of the day to give as honest and impartial view of what happened, rather than predigesting and regurgitating it for mass consumption.

            Democrats are so remarkably stupid that the vote for their own destruction. It is critical that sanity be returned to federal politics, immediately or the backlash against socialist ignorance will be considerable. The democrats bring this on themselves.

          • Dorrie

            “Critical” is definitely the word. America is on the brink of collapse financially. The addition of Common Core will hasten it’s demise. Common Core is designed to indoctrinate America’s youth and ready them for One World Government. It is even forced on Home Schooling and Christian schools for that very reason. And they have thus far gotten away with it, using reasoning of “testing regulations throughout”. So home schooled kids MUST learn Common Core or can’t get into college! It’s EVIL and it’s MARXISM at it’s finest!

            The only good thing is that these revisionist modern educational theories always fall flat due to lack of money, interest and resistance from knowledgeable or not too bright contrarians. The more things in education change, the more they stay the same. This too , shall pass. Along with democrats.
