San Antonio: Somali suspected terrorist pleads guilty

I know, I know, we’ve heard this before, but read this story.  It is a great example of what happens as “asylum seekers” lie their way into the US.  

And, this story is instructive for all of you who think only Hispanics are coming across our southern border!

Asylees vs. refugees:

Just a reminder, the UN and the State Department select supposedly persecuted “refugees” and bring them here; “asylum seekers” arrive at our border and ask for asylum because they say they are persecuted in their home country.  These programs are two sides of the same coin with the asylum side growing more rapidly then the refugee side.

The good news in this case is that we caught this guy and now we get to pay for his imprisonment, but what about wifey?

From My San Antonio (hat tip: Gary)

A Somali man with suspected terrorism ties pleaded guilty Wednesday to lying to an immigration judge in a failed bid to get asylum, and to FBI agents investigating his links to terrorist groups.

Abdullah Omar Fidse surprised prosecutors Wednesday when his lawyer announced that he wanted to plead guilty to two charges of making false statements.

His hearing before Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery was initially meant to take up a motion to dismiss an indictment that could have left him facing more than 30 years in prison. With his guilty plea, he now faces up to 10 years.

Liar! Liar!  By the way, see my post here about the asylum racket.  I am convinced these Somalis and others who know to ask for asylum when caught coming across the border have already gotten some “guidance” from US immigration lawyers.  And, interestingly here is another story about Somali asylum fraud from San Antonio in March 2011.

Back to the latest news:

Fidse and Deka Abdalla Sheikh were detained at the Hidalgo port of entry in January 2008. Neither had identification, but both claimed persecution in their home country and sought asylum. Sheikh eventually got it, was granted temporary permanent residence and has been living in Madison, Wis.  [So, does the lying Wisconsin wifey get to walk free and be supported by the US taxpayer?—ed]

Fidse was held as federal authorities investigated him, and he remains jailed after the couple was indicted in May 2011.

At a hearing in September, Sheikh pleaded guilty to conspiracy to make false statements, admitting Fidse “coached” her on how to respond to immigration officials’ questions during his immigration court hearings.

The two rehearsed their responses, which they knew to be false, via phone. They even created hand signals to secretly communicate with each other during court testimony.

Following their rehearsed lines, the defendants each told authorities Fidse fled Mogadishu, Somalia in 2008 after his father was killed by Islamist militants and that they had first met in Ethiopia.

But the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force says Fidse’s father was not killed by al-Qaida or any of its Somali franchises and that Fidse and Sheikh, who had known each other since childhood, eventually married and lived together for three years.

Fidse was living in Nairobi, Kenya*, not Somalia, at the time he claimed his father was killed, officials said. And, Fidse’s father died of natural causes.

“Gather your horses and weapons and terrorize the infidels!”  That means you—“welcoming” Americans.  You are infidels too!

At a hearing last year, FBI special agent Mark Wagoner testified Fidse was secretly recorded saying he had been a cook for Osama bin Laden, and that he was “in tears” after a U.S. airstrike in Somalia in 2008 killed Aden Ayro, head of the extreme Islamic group al-Shabaab.

Fidse “spoke about jihad, ” Wagoner said. “He also recited the Koran … phrases like ‘Gather your horses and weapons and terrorize the infidels.’”

For new readers, for every suspected Somali terrorist caught, know that we are resettling thousands of Somalis here every year.  See this old post from 2008 (still one of the most visited posts everyday at RRW) about the numbers of Somalis legally being invited to live in your city.   Check out the stats for your cities here at WRAPS—seems the data is back!

We have hundreds of posts at RRW on Somali problems throughout the US.  Use our search function to find one (or LOL! more) near you!  We can always count on Somali news to liven our pages.

*Addendum:  We do not normally give asylum to people from Kenya unless they happen to be the uncle of the President of the US!

Will Islam take over America? Very likely in your children’s lifetime says author

Many Muslim leaders have made it plain that they plan to subjugate America under Islam. We should take them seriously.  [Kilpatrick]

The Catholic World Report published an interview with author William Kilpatrick who says the US is on the same river as Europe, just a little farther from the falls.

What Kilpatrick doesn’t tell us in this interview (perhaps it’s in his book) is that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops eagerly and apparently without complaint is taking federal money to help increase the Muslim population in the US through the refugee resettlement program, which ultimately, I believe, will hasten our trip over the falls.

Here is one portion of the interview by Catholic World Report.  Hat tip: Janet

First the introduction of Kilpatrick:

William Kilpatrick is an author and lecturer who taught for many years at Boston College and whose articles on Islam have appeared in numerous publications, including Investor’s Business Daily, FrontPage Magazine, the National Catholic Register, and World magazine. He has written several books, including Psychological Seduction and Why Johnny Can’t Tell Right from Wrong, and his most recent book, Christianity, Islam and Atheism: The Struggle for the Soul of the West, will be released next week from Ignatius Press. Kilpatrick recently spoke with Catholic World Report about Islam and its growing significance for the West.

The question that interested me (emphasis mine):

CWR: Many parts of Europe appear to be succumbing, in one way or another, to Islamization. What about the United States?

Kilpatrick: The US is on the same river as Europe, but not as close to the falls. It appears, however, that it’s trying hard to catch up. During the last three administrations, Muslim activists have worked hard to gain positions of influence in the government, and with great success. Muslim activist groups convinced the Department of Homeland Security to delete words like “jihad,” “Islamist,” and “terrorist” from their lexicon. In compliance with Muslim demands the Justice Department ordered the military to delete from its training manuals any suggestion that there is a connection between Islam and violence. And the State Department played a major role in enabling the Muslim Brotherhood to come to power in North Africa. Moreover, the State Department has been working with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation* for more than a year toward the goal of establishing anti-blasphemy laws or something akin to them. If the effort succeeds, criticism of Islam will then be a crime—as it already in many European countries. Meanwhile, a steady flow of Saudi money helps to ensure that college students learn only an Islam-friendly version of history and current events.

At first glance it would appear that Islamization is unlikely here because the Muslim population is small and, unlike Europe, America is a churchgoing nation with a healthy birthrate. But there is still reason for alarm. Although Christianity is in much better shape in America than in Europe, there has been a significant decline in the number of those who self-identify as Christians and a significant increase in the number of atheists, agnostics, and those who identify with no religion. Moreover, if American Christians haven’t been able to resist the growth of anti-religious secularism, how likely is it that they will be able to resist the efforts of dedicated and well-funded cultural jihadists?

In addition, America’s healthy birthrate is not as healthy as it first appears, because 41 percent of those births now occur out of wedlock. Fifty-five percent of Hispanic children are born out of wedlock, as are 72 percent of black children. As they grow older, children born into unstable families are more likely to see the structured life of Islam as a solution rather than as a problem.

Islamization is not simply a numbers game. For an analogy, consider that homosexuals make up only 2 to 3 percent of the population, but have nevertheless exerted an outsize influence on public policy and school curriculums. Of course, they have been able to do this with the help of liberal elites in media, academia, the courts, and the entertainment industry. But remember that Islamic activists have the backing of the very same people.

Our subjugation will be the result of CULTURAL JIHAD!

Islamization won’t happen tomorrow in America, but there is a distinct possibility that our children will grow up in an America dominated by Islam. It’s not necessary to be a majority or anywhere near a majority in order to dominate. Throughout history Islamic warriors have managed to subdue populations much larger than their own. If America is eventually subjugated, however, it won’t be the result of armed jihad, but of cultural jihad—the steady incremental advance of sharia law through agitation, propaganda, lawfare, political activism, and infiltration of key governmental and educational institutions. Many Muslim leaders have made it plain that they plan to subjugate America under Islam. We should take them seriously.

Hopefully Kilpatrick addresses the Bishops more thoroughly in the book, but here is his brief mention of them in this interview.

Do the Bishops know who they are dialoguing with?

The political nature of Islam ought to give pause to Catholics who think they can dialogue with Muslims in the same way they dialogue with Baptists or Jews. A recently concluded series of Catholic-Muslim dialogues sponsored by the USCCB highlights the problem. It turns out that the bishops’ dialogue partners are all members of Muslim activist groups with links to the Muslim Brotherhood. One of the counterparts, Sayyid Syeed, is a prominent figure in the Islamic Society of North America—a group that was designated as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terrorist funding scheme. One wonders if the bishops fully understand who they are dealing with.

I’ll be adding Kilpatrick’s book to my reading list—right after I finish The Hijra.
