Worldwide Islam: Suriname president’s son pleads guilty to ‘Hezbollah plot’

Posted  August 30, 2014  by  Frau Katze

The son of the president of Suriname pleaded guilty on Friday to US charges he sought to offer a home base in his South American country to the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah.

Dino Bouterse, once picked by his father to lead a counterterrorism unit in Suriname, told a judge in federal court in Manhattan that as part of the scheme he provided a false Surinamese passport to a person he believed was a Hezbollah operative. He also pleaded guilty to drug trafficking and firearms charges.

The guilty plea came a year after Bouterse’s arrest in Panama on charges he conspired to smuggle cocaine into the United States.

President Dési Bouterse and son Dino, head of the country’s anti-terrorist unit (Pic Reuter)

He had already been extradited to the United States and jailed when authorities added terrorism charges accusing him of agreeing to accept a multimillion-dollar payoff in exchange for allowing large numbers of Hezbollah fighters to use Suriname as a base for attacking American targets…

* * *
Although many Lebanese migrated to South America in earlier days, Wikipedia gives father, Dési Bouterse, a very mixed ethnic background:

Bouterse was born in Domburg, located in Wanica District, to parents of multiracial ancestry: his paternal grandmother was Amerindian and his grandfather was Dutch Creole. Bouterse’s mother was of Creole and Chinese descent.

It lists his religion as “Pentecostal.” Both father and son seem to a long history of drug trafficking.

Saudi king warns of terrorism threat to US, Europe; leftist site notices something suspicious about Saudi Arabia

Posted  August 30, 2014  by  Frau Katze

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah said terrorism would soon spread to Europe and the United States unless it is quickly dealt with in the Middle East, the Saudi state news agency reported late on Aug. 29.

The king made the statement during a reception for foreign ambassadors held in Jeddah.

“I ask you to convey this message to your leaders… Terrorism at this time is an evil force that must be fought with wisdom and speed,” said King Abdullah. “And if neglected I’m sure after a month it will arrive in Europe and a month after that in America”…

* * *
Meanwhile, a site I have never heard of before, called “The Progressive”, which sounds, well, progressive (and not the type to panic over Islam), notices something about Saudi Arabia: ISIS’s Brand of Islam Similar to U.S. Ally’s, saying:

While the Obama Administration is figuring out the best way to combat the extremism of groups like ISIS, it continues to maintain close ties with the Middle Eastern regime that promotes the same brand of Islam.

“The ideology of the Saudi regime is that of ISIS even if the foreign policies differ,” California State University-Stanislaus Professor Asad AbuKhalil tells The Progressive.

Even the lefties are noticing it now.

A gay couple who claim they were kicked out of a cab on a busy Chicago freeway last year just for sharing a kiss are suing the taxi company that employed the driver.

Matthew McCrea and Steven White filed the lawsuit against Sun Taxi in Cook County Circuit Court, Illinois, on Monday, claiming afterwards that “there is still discrimination” towards gay people and “people that are against us.”

The pair already filed a complaint last year with the Illinois Department of Human Rights against the taxi company and the driver, Jama Anshur…

A new study published in ICES Journal of Marine Science estimates that that up to 1.5 million farmed Atlantic salmon escape from Norwegian netpens into the wild every year – far more than acknowledged by the industry.

The risk is that escaped farmed salmon mate with wild fish, impacting survival rates.

Guilty: Tracey Lynn Garner has been found guilty of murder August 29, after killing an Alabama woman by giving her silicone injections as a buttocks enhancement

A Mississippi “woman” was convicted yesterday of murder in connection to illicit silicone buttocks injections that led to a Georgia woman’s death.

Tracy Lynn Garner, 54, was found guilty of depraved-heart murder and conspiracy to commit wire fraud in the 2012 death of Karima Gordon, 37, after a jury deliberated for five hours, according to the state attorney general’s office.

The murder conviction carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Killer Jermaine Rutherford claims he’s gay to halt deportation to Jamaica

Posted  August 30, 2014  by  Frau Katze
Allowed to stay: Killer Jermaine Rutherford, 29, has avoided deportation to Jamaica by saying he would be in danger in the “homophobic” country

A second Jamaican has escaped deportation at the last minute by claiming he is homosexual – despite being convicted of murdering a schoolboy.

Jermaine Rutherford, 29, stabbed the 15-year-old to death over a £10 debt while in England on a temporary visa.

He was due to be sent back to the Caribbean upon completing his prison sentence. But while awaiting deportation – ten years after a judge said he should be kicked out – Rutherford belatedly declared he was gay, and would be in danger in “homophobic” Jamaica. The Home Secretary said his claim should be rejected “on credibility grounds” – but the Court of Appeal ruled that he could stay in London.

The Mail told yesterday how another Jamaican thug, Alvin Brissett, avoided deportation at the eleventh hour when he claimed to be a homosexual while sat in handcuffs at Gatwick airport. The father of two has won the right to remain here due to his human right to a “family life” – despite a string of convictions for drugs possession, assault and robbery.

The success of Rutherford is even more shocking, given his conviction was for murder. The full details of his case can only be revealed after the Daily Mail challenged a judge’s anonymity order…

O.J. Simpson plans to convert to Islam

Posted  August 30, 2014  by  Frau Katze
O.J. Simpson

O.J. Simpson is set to convert to Islam.

The former American footballer and movie star has been imprisoned in Nevada since 2008 on charges of kidnapping and armed robbery in relation to an armed robbery that took place at the Palace Station hotel-and-casino in Las Vegas in which sports memorabilia was taken.

After seeing his appeal for a re-trial quashed last and being informed in July 2013 he will serve at least another four years, Simpson has embraced the religion in a bid to change his life.

A source told National Enquirer magazine: “O.J. really thought that he was going to be successful in a bid for a new trial and eventually be released from prison.

“But now he’s not eligible for parole until late 2017, which has angered him.”

The disgraced 67-year-old star has become interested in the religion through his friendship with former world heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, who was imprisoned in the early 1990s and is a devout Muslim…

Shouldn’t fighting for ISIS disqualify you as a US Citizen?

Posted  August 30, 2014  by  Frau Katze

Fox News is reporting that a second American citizen has been killed while fighting for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group in Syria. That same report goes on to note that federal investigators estimate roughly one hundred American citizens have gone to Syria to fight for various jihadist organizations. Other sources have indicated that the number of US citizens joining up with ISIS is as high as three hundred.

Homeland security officials are rightly concerned about this development. American citizens fighting for ISIS and other groups can potentially return to the United States and apply their battlefield-acquired skills to carry out attacks against American targets – a list of which was just published in Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s (AQAP) publication, Al Malahem.

One way to inhibit such operatives from coming back to the United States to carry out such plans is to revoke their US citizenship, a move that would invalidate their US passports and make it that much harder to set foot on American soil…

* * *
But that might leave the former US citizen “stateless” (unless he or she held dual citizenship). And we all know that no Western country would have laws that permit a citizen to be made stateless.

It would violate their “human rights,” which these days seem to benefit only criminals and rabid Muslims.

Lizzie McGuire guest starred on an episode of Law and Order: SVU as a mother who supposedly killed her infant. This episode obviously stood in for the Casey Anthony case. Turns out her kid had measles, but she was still a crappy mother.

Jake Thomas, Lizzie McGuire

Lizzie’s younger brother Matt switched from harmless pranks to rape. He guest starred on an episode of Criminal Minds as a member of a trio who kidnap, chase, rape, and murder women. To be fair, he didn’t know one of his accomplices went rogue and killed them, but still. He ends up beaten to death with a baseball bat because karma’s a bitch.
