A gas-station clerk was charged Monday with shooting a male customer to death on Detroit’s west side.
Rami Ali Jaber, 26, of Dearborn Heights allegedly came from behind a protective area of the gas station and shot the man after “words were exchanged,” police told the Detroit News. The incident happened just before 4 p.m. Sunday, May 13, at the Citgo station on West McNichols near the Southfield Freeway.
Imagine going to the altar, say your vows, and just as you start to celebrate your big day, several members of a brutal street gang show up to your wedding party uninvited. Gunshots are fired, and fights break out.
That’s what police say happened recently in Concord, New Hampshire. When they responded they encountered rival Somali street gangs from another state, Ohio, resulting in sheer “chaos” that took two weeks to sort out.
Abdul al-Sayed to GOP opponent: ‘You may not hate Muslims but Muslims definitely hate you!’
By LEO HOHMANN
Michigan’s first-ever Muslim candidate for governor, Dr. Abdul al-Sayed, took a shot at fellow gubernatorial candidate Patrick Colbeck on Thursday that some Republicans are saying went below the belt.
Colbeck, speaking at a candidate’s forum in East Lansing, expressed his concerns about Sharia law and the extremist Muslim Brotherhood’s tactic of civilization jihad. Colbeck took exception with an article he says was planted by Sayed supporters in the left-of-center website Buzzfeed, which painted Colbeck as a fringe extremist using “unfounded conspiracy theories” against Sayed.
Rather than address Colbeck’s concerns, Sayed called Colbeck a racist Islamophobe whom Muslims “definitely hate.”
Sayed, 33, the former public-health director for the city of Detroit, was on stage Thursday at the Michigan Press Association with several other Democrat and Republican candidates for governor running in the Aug. 7 primary.
Sayed refused to answer a question from the moderator about the Islamic legal system known as Sharia, other than to say that, if elected, he would uphold the constitutions of the U.S. and State of Michigan.
“I take [the Constitution] particularly seriously because it guarantees me two things. A, the right to pray as I choose to pray, and for me that means I put my face on the ground 34 times a day,” Sayed said. “Some people choose not to pray at all. Then in Article Six it also tells us that no religious test should be held over someone wishing to serve under this Constitution. It’s an incredible document.”
Police searching for 2nd suspect, described as woman of ‘Middle Eastern descent’
By LEO HOHMANN
KENNESAW, Ga. — A suburban Atlanta shopping mall was the scene of a brazen attempt to kidnap a child Tuesday night, and one of the two suspects is behind bars, thanks to the quick action of the girl’s dad and a couple of Good Samaritans who happened to be in the right place at the right time.
An 11-year-old girl was ambushed inside the women’s bathroom by a man who held a knife to her throat, and police say she likely would have been kidnapped, or worse, if not for her loud screams and ability to escape the man’s clutches.
After that, her father and two other men made quick work of the suspect.
Cobb County police have 26-year-old Danzell Mitchell in custody but are still searching for a possible female accomplice, who is described as having dark hair and olive skin, possibly of Middle Eastern descent, said Sgt. Wayne Delk.
The woman is in her 30s, of thin build and wearing a pink shirt.
The incident happened about 6:30 p.m. at the Town Center Mall in Kennesaw, which is a college town about 25 miles northwest of Atlanta, the home of Kennesaw State University.
The girl was at the mall with her family, eating dinner in the bustling food court when she asked to go to the restroom. Her dad escorted her to the women’s restroom and waited outside the door. She told police she went into the bathroom, did not notice anyone else inside, and entered one of the stalls.
But when she came out of the stall, a black man grabbed her and held a knife to her throat.
“He told her not to scream, but of course she did scream and that startled him enough that she was able to get away from him,” Delk said.
She ran out to her father.
Less than a minute later, Mitchell exited the women’s restroom. The girl’s dad was waiting for him.
Walls and fences are not very popular with progressives when such structures are proposed by President Trump to keep drug dealers, terrorists, killers and human traffickers out of the U.S.
But when a fence is requested to protect an inner-city community of refugees and migrants, these same anti-Trumpers are all in.
How do we know that?
Perhaps the most perfect example of this double standard is playing out right now in Minneapolis’ Cedar Riverside area, otherwise known as “Little Mogadishu” for its high concentration of Somali refugees.
The Cedar High Apartments, a four-building complex comprised of 539 mostly one-bedroom units, will be getting a $825,000 security upgrade, compliments of the Democrat-run city Housing Authority, that involves building a 6-foot security fence around the public-housing property.
By now almost everyone has heard about the escalating violence in London under its Muslim mayor, Sidiq Khan.
If you aren’t being stabbed to death in the UK’s biggest and most important city, you risk having acid thrown in your face by one of the gangsters being welcomed by what is essentially the West’s largest sanctuary city.
The Times report shows knife crime in Hertfordshire, Warwickshire, Cambridgeshire, Hampshire, Essex and Norfolk has almost doubled in three years.
At least 36 people in London have been stabbed to death so far this year.
Knife crime is up 20 percent in London over three years, but in the outlying counties the increases since 2014 are even more dramatic. The Times reports:
Knife crime incidents in Hertfordshire are up 150% from 229 incidents in 2014 to 573 in 2017; Hampshire is up 102%, Cambridgeshire up 83%, Warwickshire up 180%, Bedfordshire up 86%, Essex up 86%, Thames Valley up 50% and north Wales up 134%. Norfolk’s knife crime rate has rocketed 274%.
Khan made the astonishing admission last year that his administration was preparing for 1.5 million new people to move to London over the next decade. Since it is preposterous to think even half of that number would move to London from within the UK, Mr. Khan’s plan obviously involves importing many more Muslims from Asia, Africa and the Middle East. [Sadiq Khad boasts of 1.5 million new people to capital as he reveals shock ‘London Plan,’ by Siobhan McFadyen, The Express, March 4, 2017]
This would swell the ranks of Muslim voters and solidify London as an Islamic stronghold right in the heart of the West for years to come.
And the Islamization of the UK doesn’t stop with Mr. Khan or the city of London.
A record 16 Muslims, including a dozen of Pakistani ethnicity, won UK Parliamentary elections in 2017 to become members of the House of Commons.
And Prime Minister Theresa May just a couple of weeks ago appointed Sajid Javid as the country’s new interior minister. Javid is considered very ambitious and openly says he wants the top job at 10 Downing Street. Imagine the UK not only with a Muslim mayor of London but also a Muslim prime minister!
As the UK becomes more Islamic, it also becomes less safe.
Thanks to the Times, we now have documentation that Mayor Khan’s enabling of violent gangs to expand their operations within his city is also affecting public safety in the outer-lying suburbs and smaller towns remote from London.
This is an indictment of the open-borders policies of British governments dating back to the 1960s and 70s and continuing into the 2000s. This open-borders policy is what led to the election of Sidiq Khan in the first place, as mass Muslim immigration has the natural result of more Muslims being elected to public office.
Developing the critical mass necessary to elect Muslim politicians does not happen overnight. As we’ve seen in the UK, it takes four or five decades.
This should be a warning to other Western societies. Today’s open-door migration policies, while filling the cheap-labor demands of corporations, will eventually lead to tomorrow’s Sidiq Khan ruling over your city, state or county.
In fact, the slow grind of “cultural jihad” — taking over incrementally through the peaceful political process — is already starting to come into view, albeit dimly and barely noticed by the vast majority of Americans.
In Michigan, Dr. Abdul Mohamed al-Syed is running for governor in this summer’s Democrat primary, one of more than 90 Muslim candidates running for office across the U.S. Part of Dr. Syed’s platform is to make Michigan a sanctuary state.
