Norway gets 300 more Muslim “refugees”

Here is a short piece from the Norway Post (probably short in hopes no one will see it!) about Libyan refugees going to Norway this week:

Norway will receive 300 refugees from the war in Libya. The first eight arrived at the Oslo International Airport Gradermoen Tuesday evening.

The refugees, who originally come from Somalia and Eritrea, have spent the last few months in a refugee camp in Choucha in Tunisia, at the Libyan border.

What’s up with this, I thought Obama had liberated Libya and everyone could go back to a brand new Democratic life there?

Alleged Al Shabaab financier collapses in court

We finally got former Rochester, MN resident Mohamud Said Omar extradited from the Netherlands where he has been held since 2009 as the alleged financier of the Somali refugee “youths” who returned to Africa for jihad training.  Here is our story on his arrest in 2009.  Read all about him, just your average “penniless” refugee.

From AP:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A Somali man accused of helping recruit fighters for the terror group al-Shabaab has been hospitalized after collapsing in a U.S. court.

Mohamud Said Omar was in court Friday for a detention hearing when he collapsed. The 45-year-old regained consciousness, but the judge suspended proceedings so Omar could get medical care.

Omar’s attorney, Matt Forsgren, said his client has had similar episodes in the past, though he declined to elaborate.

Omar is charged as part of the U.S. government’s investigation into the recruitment of at least 21 men who authorities believe left Minnesota to join al-Shabab in Somalia. He’s been indicted on five counts, including providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

He’s been in custody in the Netherlands since 2009 and was recently extradited to Minnesota.

Adding insult to injury, now we will be paying for his medical treatment!

For new readers:  We’ve been reporting on the Somali-youths-going-to-Jihad-training story since it first broke in 2008 here.

And for your information, the US has admitted well over 100,000 Somali refugees to the US since the early 1990′s (they were trickling in in the 1980′s).   To check out the numbers visit this post, one of our most widely read posts over the last few years.   In FY2010 which ended September 30th the US State Department resettled 4,884 Somalis (here) to towns near you.  The “teen” would-be bomber in Oregon was one of the refugees.

Also, after being closed for nearly two years, the US State Department is on the verge (has been on the verge for months and months!)  of resuming the fraud-ridden family reunification program that admitted as many as 36,000 Somalis fraudulently to the US between 2003 and 2008.  See the latest on new regulations, here.

Now, also, Somalis are coming illegally across our borders and ironically asking for asylum because of the radical Islamic Jihadists (including Americans!) in Africa.

Somali sentenced in Montana Amtrak terror threat

Unless you are a regular reader here, you probably never heard about this incident that happened last February.  No pictures on the nightly news showing 140 Amtrak passengers walking across a frozen pond after the Somali said there was a bomb on the train.  We reported the story here in April when he plead guilty.

The guy got 15 months and apparently no federal terrorism charges.

From Minnesota Public Radio:

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) – A Minnesota man has been sentenced to 15 months in prison for a false threat that led to the evacuation of an Amtrak train in northern Montana in February.

Hussein Abdi Hassan, 24, of Minneapolis was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Sam Haddon on a federal charge of false information and hoaxes.

Prosecutors say Hassan was removed from an Amtrak train in Browning on Feb. 14 for being intoxicated and disruptive. He later told a deputy there was something dangerous in his bag and dangerous people on the train.

After the train was stopped and 140 passengers evacuated across a frozen pond, the train was searched for explosives. None were found. The threat delayed the train by 11 hours. Hassan also was ordered to pay $310,089 in restitution.  [How are they going to get this kind of money out of this guy—he will have to turn to dealing drugs or doing food stamp fraud.—ed]

No terrorism charges and no deportation here either it seems!  Obama Amnesty candidate?

Texas: another guilty plea by immigrant in food stamp scam

It’s the same old story, but interesting to note that ICE is involved so the guy must have some immigration ‘problems’ too:

From MMD Newswire:

BROWNSVILLE, Texas (MMD Newswire) August 26, 2011 – – The owner of a local supermarket pleaded guilty on Wednesday to defrauding the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamp fraud, announced U.S. Attorney José Angel Moreno, Southern District of Texas. The case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) with the assistance of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Office of Inspector General.

Parviz Sheikh Rezaei, 56, the proprietor of the Pariz Dollar Supermarket was arraigned by U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen on Aug. 23. According to court documents, Rezaei repeatedly exchanged Lone Star card benefits from participants in the food stamp program for discounted amounts of cash. Then, he charged the government for the full value of the Lone Star card transaction. Some of those transactions were with undercover federal law enforcement agents.

“Today’s guilty plea is an example of the impact we can have when law enforcement combine their expertise,” said Jerry Robinette, special agent in charge of ICE HSI in San Antonio. “ICE HSI will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to aggressively investigate these cases and ensure that those who profit by taking advantage of others face justice for their crimes.”

He might go to jail for a few years but in light of Obama’s amnesty by fiat, he likely will never be deported.
