State Department to hold Muslim “diversity” and “inclusion” shindig tomorrow

I wanted to give you the link, but can you believe it—it’s dead.  Anyway, here is the e-mail Press Announcement.  Don’t rush down there though because bloggers aren’t legitimate media and it sure doesn’t look like it’s open to the general public.  Guess who is giving the opening remarks—-Maryland US Senator Ben Cardin!

The Office of the Special Representative to Muslim Communities together with the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor and the Office of Civil Rights, will host the first ever strategy session on Diversity, Inclusion and U.S. Foreign Policy. The U.S. Department of State will convene 100 top diversity leaders from the public and private sectors to focus on the impact of diverse professional environments and the way in which the diversity and inclusion agenda informs U.S. foreign policy.

The program opens promptly at 8:30 a.m. on June 7 in the Marshall Center with opening remarks from Senator Ben Cardin (D/MD), Special Representative to Muslim Communities, Farah Pandith, and Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield, Director General of the Foreign Service and Director of Human Resources at the Department of State. Presentations and working groups continue throughout the day until 4:30 p.m. Dr. Ernest Wilson III, Dean of the Annenberg School of Public Diplomacy, will offer the keynote address at 8:45 a.m. on “Why Diversity is ‘Mission Critical’ for the U.S.” Under Secretary for Economic, Energy and Agricultural Affairs Robert D. Hormats will address the session at 2:35 p.m.

Minnesota Somalis walk off job due to new dress code

No flowing fabrics below the knee….

Here we go again, creeping Shariah from KEYC.TV:

Le Center, MN –

A new dress code at a southern Minnesota company prompted some Somali workers to walk off the job because they say it conflicts with their religious beliefs. The new policy at Dianne’s Fine Desserts in Le Center restricts dresses that hang below the knee. The company says the new policy is due to safety concerns as the longer skirts could get caught in the equipment in fact they say that did just recently happen.

But some Islamic workers say the dress rule was changed to force them off the job because of their religious beliefs. About 30 workers left rather than comply with the dress code. This isn’t the first issue the company’s had with its workers. Back in December of 2010, workers claimed their rights were violated when the company changed its break times. The company disputed those claims.

Here is an idea, don’t hire Somalis.  And, tell the State Department to stop bringing them in.

North Dakota Somali charged in murder of Native Americans

Editor:  This is the third in my series of posts today on Muslim refugee perpetrated crimes in America.  Check out the Burmese murderer here and Kurdish gangs in Nashville, here.

Somehow I missed this story a couple of weeks ago, but better late then never to keep our archives up to date.  I first told you about these murders in February 2011, here.  At the time, the accused was only ‘a person of interest’ in the four murders, but two weeks ago he was charged in all of the slayings of a Sioux family and the boyfriend of one of the family members.

I wondered then, and still do—do federal hate crime charges come into play?  How does it work when one protected class kills others of another protected class—-hummm? 

The Associated Press tells us that North Dakota doesn’t have much experience with murders especially multiple murder cases:

A Somali man charged in the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old woman in northwest North Dakota is now accused of killing her mother, brother and the mother’s boyfriend, who were found dead the same day in mobile home across town.

Omar Mohamed Kalmio, 27, who has a history of violent crime, was charged with murder several months after his infant daughter’s mother, Sabrina Zephier, was found dead at her home in Minot in January 2011. The baby was found in the home unharmed.

Court documents show prosecutors filed additional murder charges Friday, alleging Kalmio also was the gunman who killed 13-year-old Dylan Zephier, 38-year-old Jolene Zephier, and Jolene’s 22-year-old boyfriend, Jeremy Longie.

Multiple slayings are virtually unheard of in North Dakota, which had 10 murders and non-negligent homicides in all of 2010, according to data compiled by the FBI.

Here is the part of the story that should infuriate all of you—Why the h*** was he still running free in America?  Why wasn’t he deported?

Kalmio was convicted in 2006 of second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and sentenced to about a year in prison. He and a group of other Somali men were accused of attacking a man in Minneapolis in January 2006, and Kalmio stabbed him three times in the back with a knife. Kalmio also was convicted of theft in 2006, and ordered to pay a fine.

Almost 100,000 Somalis have been admitted to the US through the Refugee Resettlement Program of the US State Department, here, and there is no sign of the feds letting up.  Minnesota is one of the top destination states for Somalis.

Police try new tactic to defeat Kurdish gangs in Nashville neighborhoods

It looks like this will be Muslim refugee crime day at RRW.   First, we had new information about the Burmese Muslim murder suspect in Salt Lake City and I have yet to get to the North Dakota Somali murderer and here comes news from the Kurdish capital of the United States—Nashville—about efforts by police to get the Kurdish criminal gangs under control.

Here is Holly Johnson of Catholic Charities in Nashville in that 2010 “Little Kurdistan” article that we see has now been removed (it’s a good thing I was able to post some of it!):

Kurds have struggled to build a new haven in Nashville, and director of refugee and immigration services at Catholic Charities of Tennessee Holly Johnson says “they have changed Nashville.”

She got that right!

Below is this morning’s story from the Tennessean (thanks to one of our many friends in TN):

Metro police on Tuesday filed a civil lawsuit to wrest control of an area in South Nashville from the clutches of the Kurdish Pride gang by banning members from congregating in a 1.47-mile “safety zone.”

The department is targeting 24 of what they call the “worst of the worst” members of the gang, hoping a judge will ban them from publicly gathering in a zone that encompasses part of an area known as Little Kurdistan and includes Paragon Mills and Providence Park. The injunction lawsuit is the fruit of a three-year effort to combat gangs for detectives to build their case and attorneys to try and bullet-proof it from legal challenges. The injunction is the first of its kind ever filed in Tennessee, but a tactic used successfully for years in other states like California.

“Our police department will not sit idly by when a street gang threatens the peace of our community,” said Metro Police Chief Steve Anderson at a news conference held in Paragon Mills, the site detectives say hosted Kurdish Pride gang meetings. “We want to give this park back to the citizens.”

Police say Kurdish Pride members were involved in at least one murder, multiple beatings and shootings, drug dealing, illegal weapons and vandalism. Incidents include the 2006 attempted murder of a Metro Parks Police officer and multiple graffiti messages threatening a Metro Police Gang Unit detective.

The police will surely be stymied by civil rights activists who will charge that they are violating the gangs’ first amendment right to assemble.  LOL!  Look out for Maryland’s gift to the Obama Justice DepartmentThomas Perez—to ride in and protect the immigrant gangs’ civil rights.   Here is just one of dozens of posts on Perez (former board member of CASA de Maryland) and now civil rights division head honcho under Eric Holder.

For more on little Kurdistan and a history of how Nashville got so lucky (not!), check this out.  There is a 26 minute film here too which I look forward to watching later.  Farm chores beckon….

Utah: Burmese refugee accused of murdering Christian girl is a Muslim

Geez, I sure missed this one!  I’ve been wondering for years if the ‘diversity is strength’ gang in the US Refugee Resettlement Program had actually put Burmese Muslims (Rohingya?*) in the same apartment building as Christian Karen people in Salt Lake City.   Thanks to reader Melissa for spotting this lengthy story in the Salt Lake Tribune from right after the murder in 2008 of 7-year-old Hser Ner Moo that reports that the accused, whose case should be advancing in court this month, is a Muslim.

You really need to read the whole sorry and very sad story of the resettlement of these Burmese families in Salt Lake City by either Catholic Community Services or the International Rescue Committee.  “Mr. Tomorrow” worked (probably still works) for one of them.

In 2006, the U.S. invited thousands of Burmese refugees at Mae La to apply for resettlement. Cartoon and Pearlly signed up, believing America was going to save them. Their children would have a better education, and they would have the chance to work hard toward a house, a car, a more comfortable life.

But within weeks of their arrival in Utah in August 2007, Cartoon and Pearlly were confused.

They had been careful to ration the meat and rice provided by their resettlement agency, but now they were running low on food. They didn’t know how to find their resettlement caseworker, known by refugees as Mr. Tomorrow for his lack of follow-through. They couldn’t call for help because their phone wasn’t connected.

Gee, where have we heard that before?

Here, however, is the most important part of the story:

News of Hser Ner Moo’s murder raced across the ocean to Mae La [refugee camp—ed], where thousands of families believed immigration to the U.S. would be their salvation.

Some said her death proved America’s dangers. Perhaps refugees were sent to bad neighborhoods, home to gangs. Others worried she was killed because she was Karen. Some families skipped resettlement interviews, one of the first steps in applying to emigrate to the U.S.

The U.S. embassy finally posted a letter explaining the man accused in Hser Ner Moo’s death was not an American. He was one of their own, a refugee from Mae La.

Rage flashed through the muddy lanes where Hser Ner Moo had once skipped rope and played hide-and-seek. In the camp, tension lingers between the Karen and Muslims, and some choose to live apart. Hser Ner Moo and Esar had lived in separate sections of Mae La.

America had made them neighbors.

It is just as I thought when I first saw the story of the murder four years ago.  The multiculturalists’ myth is that decades of hatred and religious conflicts, more than a century in this case, can be simply forgotten when refugees are resettled in the great American melting pot.  Let’s put them all together and there will be love and understanding and religious harmony!—ahhhhh!

*For new readers:  I placed this post in my Rohingya Reports category, among others, however the ‘R’ word has not yet been used in connection to the alleged murderer (that I know of!).   You should know that there is an increasing drumbeat by the resettlement contractors, especially the US Conference of Catholic Bishops at the May 1 meeting, to bring more Rohingya Muslims to the US.
