MSA National Condemns Suspension of Muslim Student Union

The suspension of the Irvine Chapter of the Muslim Student Association is now up for debate and the national headquarters is fighting back. Lisa Cornish, UC Irvine’s director of student housing, found that the Muslim Student Union had “planned, orchestrated and coordinated in advance” an effort to disrupt a speech by Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren on Feb. 8 about U.S.-Israeli relations. The Muslim Student Association was the earliest known public front organization of what would later become the US Muslim Brotherhood and many USMB leaders were active in the early days of MSA.

The national headquarters of the Muslim Student Association (MSA) has condemned the recommendation by a University of California official that the it Irvine Chapter be suspended for one year as a result of its members having disrupted a speech by the Israeli Ambassador in February. According to the MSA announcement:

(MSA National – 6/15/2010) – The Muslim Students’ Association National condemns the recommendation for a one-year suspension of the University of California, Irvine Muslim Student Union (MSU) made by the Senior Executive Director of Student Housing due to allegations that the MSU violated sections of theUniversity policy.

The allegations arise from a UC Irvine-sponsored event in February featuring Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren. Several UC Irvine students stood up and protested during the event regarding Israeli policies toward Palestinians. TheUniversity alleges these students acted on behalf of the MSU, but the MSU repeatedly denies these claims, reiterating that the students acted on their own accord.

Taliban Hang 7-Year-Old Boy Accused of Being a Spy, Suicide Bomber Kills 40 at Afghanistan Wedding

The Taliban accused a 7-year-old boy of being a spy, hanging him in the pubic square. "I don't think there's a crime bigger than that, that even the most inhuman forces on earth can commit," Hamid Karzai said Thursday. "A 7-year-old boy cannot be a spy. A 7-year-old boy cannot be anything but a 7-year-old boy.” The victim was the grandson of a tribal elder, many of whom are being harassed or killed by the Taliban for supporting the Karzai government or the U.S. Military.

Twisted Taliban militants took terror to a new low by accusing a 7-year-old boy of spying - and hanging him high.

That outrage drew immediate condemnation from the Afghan president, who called the execution a "crime against humanity."

"I don't think there's a crime bigger than that, that even the most inhuman forces on earth can commit," Hamid Karzai said Thursday. "A 7-year-old boy cannot be a spy. A 7-year-old boy cannot be anything but a 7-year-old boy

Two Arrested at Kennedy Airport on Terror Charges

Anwar al-Awlaki has yet again seduced two young men into homegrown terrorism. Mohamed Haoud Alessa, 20, and Carlos Eduardo Almonte, 24, were arrested at JFK airport on their way to Somalia to join terror org Al-Shabaab. In November of last year, Alessa told Mr. Almonte and the undercover police officer: “They only fear you when you have a gun and when you — when you start killing them, and when you — when you take their head, and you go like this, and you behead it on camera . . . We’ll start doing killing here, if I can’t do it over there.” “I leave this time, God willing, I never come back. I’ll never see this crap hole. Only way I would come back here is if I was in the land of jihad and the leader ordered me to come back here and do something here. Ah, I love that.”

Two New Jersey men who were bound for Somalia with the stated intention of joining an Islamic extremist group to kill American troops were arrested at Kennedy International Airport late Saturday, federal and local authorities said on Sunday.

The men, Mohamed Mahmood Alessa, 20, and Carlos Eduardo Almonte, 24, were seeking to join Al Shabab, a group that claims ideological kinship with Al Qaeda and was thought to have provided a haven to Qaeda operatives wanted for bombings of United States Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, prosecutors said in court papers.

The men were taken into custody as they prepared to take separate flights to Egypt, the first leg of their journey to Somalia to join Al Shabab, according to federal and local officials.

Ballot Question Seeks to Forbid Sharia Law in Oklahoma

Oklahoma’s State Question 755, which likely will be on the ballot in November, would make in-state courts rely on federal and state laws when deciding cases and forbid courts from using international law or Shariah law when making rulings. State Rep. Rex Duncan, primary author of HJR 1056/SQ 755, hopes that other states will follow. “The legislation behind SQ 755 was inspired by the realization, through media observation, that Islam is spreading into America at an alarming rate, and that activist judges are beginning to give credence to ‘international law,’” Duncan said.

Edmond, OK

State lawmakers say it’s a pre-emptive strike against Sharia law, needed to prevent here what has happened in the United Kingdom.

State Question 755, which likely will be on the ballot in November, would make in-state courts rely on federal and state laws when deciding cases and forbid courts from using international law or Sharia law when making rulings.

The proposal, which has an Edmond connection, would amend Article 7, Section 1 of the Oklahoma Constitution, and stems from House Joint Resolution 1056, dubbed the “Save Our State” amendment, passed during the just-finished legislative session.

State Rep. Lewis Moore, R-Edmond, a co-author of HJR 1056, said he wanted to express his support very early for the legislation, which is needed because of the “onslaught” coming Oklahoma’s way.

New York, NY

The Pakistani-American man accused of trying to detonate a car bomb in Times Square has told investigators that he drew inspiration from Anwar al-Awlaki, a Yemeni-American cleric whose militant online lectures have been a catalyst for several recent attacks and plots, an American official said Thursday.

The would-be bomber, Faisal Shahzad, was inspired by the violent rhetoric of Mr. Awlaki, said the official, who would speak of the investigation only on condition of anonymity.

“He listened to him, and he did it,” the official said, referring to Saturday’s attempted bombing on a busy street in Times Square.
