Minnesota: Muslim Bank Robber Granted Month Long Reprieve, Claims Islam Forbids ‘Engaging In Conflict And Argument’ During Ramadan

07/21/2012 1 comment

Unfortunately, Islam didn’t forbid this devout follower from robbing banks. Thus, yet again, here we have yet another American judge falling for yet another Islamist lie, in yet another example of America bowing down to Allah …

By Elizabeth Mohr, Pioneer Press – “Citing religious views, an accused bank robber known as ‘The Man in Black’ asked a federal judge this week to postpone hearings until the end of Ramadan, a monthlong Muslim observance.

Mark Edward Wetsch was charged with holding up 13 Minnesota banks between March 2011 and January 2012. The robber earned his moniker by wearing all black during the heists, in which he made off with about $69,000.

Wetsch was scheduled to have a motion hearing Friday, July 20, in U.S. District Court in St. Paul but asked the judge to continue the hearing so he could observe the holy month of Ramadan, a period of daylight fasting, prayer and reflection. Ramadan began Friday and lasts 30 days.

After Magistrate Judge Jeanne Graham denied his initial request for a continuance, Wetsch argued that his meal and prayer requirements can be accommodated, but there are other elements of Ramadan to be observed as well.

‘Mr. Wetsch describes two tenets that must also be adhered to during Ramadan: The faith calls for not engaging in conflict and argument; and to work to reconcile differences and seek peace,’ said Wetsch’s motion, filed Thursday. ‘Clearly, a contested hearing in which the government is making allegations against Mr. Wetsch and he is fighting against causes him to engage in conflict and argument.’

Graham approved his renewed request. His next hearing has not yet been scheduled.” Source – Pioneer Press.

Flashback: Anti-Sharia Bill Dropped In Minnesota – “The Minnesota Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) stood against what it called an anti-Sharia Senate bill that would “discriminate’ against Muslims in its state legislature. Now, following its protest, it seems CAIR succeeded in its goal as the Minnesota lawmaker responsible for introducing the piece of legislation will drop the bill… CAIR dubbed Thompson’s S2281 as an ‘anti-Islam bill’ that was a ‘boilerplate copy-pasted verbatim from a far right policy group.’ That policy group, according to CAIR, is headed by David Yerushalmi. While CAIR dubs him an ‘anti-Islam extremist,’ Yerushlami has worked tirelessly to prevent creeping sharia from entering U.S. legal systems.” Read more.

Group Affiliated With Global Jihad Claims Responsibility For Bulgaria Terror, ‘Ramadan Is A Month Of Holy War And Death For Allah’

Sounds like this could be the love-child born in “Allah’s Valhalla.” Oh, and I guess that this judge in Minnesota must have missed that Ramadan memo …

By Roi Kais – “A group going by the name ‘Qaedat al-Jihad’ has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack against Israeli tourists in Burgas which claimed the lives of six people, including five Israelis, and wounded dozens.

In a statement released in Western media outlets, the group threatened to carry out more attacks. ‘The month of Ramadan is a month of holy war and death for Allah. It is a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.’

The organization is apparently affiliated with the Global Jihad movement.

Its statement said, ‘One of our groups aided by Allah managed to bomb a bus full of Jewish tourists, plunderers of holy lands, after careful tracking.

‘The holy war is not confined to a particular arena and we shall fight the Jews and the Americans until they leave the land of Islam.’

Israel and the US pointed a finger at Iran and Hezbollah following the attack.” Source – Ynet.

Flashback: A Match Made In Allah’s Valhalla: Sunni Al Qaeda’s Big Fat Shiite Iranian Wedding – “Last week, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper described the relationship between Iran and al Qaeda as a ‘longstanding … marriage.’ But you had to listen carefully to hear him say that. ‘Iran has harbored al Qaeda leaders, facilitators,’ Clapper told a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee. They have been ‘under house arrest conditions. [Iran’s rulers] have had this sort of standoff arrangement with al Qaeda, allowing [al-Qaeda] to exist [inside Iran], but not to foment any operations directly from Iran, because they’re very sensitive about, ‘Hey, we might come after them there as well.’… So there has been this longstanding, as I say, kind of, shotgun marriage, or marriage of convenience. I think, probably, the Iranians may think that they might use, perhaps, al Qaeda in the future as a surrogate or proxy.’” Read more.

Gloating Ahmadinejad Hints At Iranian Involvement In Bulgaria Terror Attack

07/21/2012 Leave a comment

Quite telling, isn’t it, when those affiliated with the “religion of peace” love to claim responsibility for the brutal murders of men, women and children …

“Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gloated publicly on Thursday over the deaths of Israelis in a terror bombing in Bulgaria, and hinted that Iran was responsible for the attack.

Speaking hours after Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had publicly blamed the bombing Wednesday at Bulgaria’s Burgas airport on ‘Hezbollah, directed by Iran,’ Ahmadinejad described the attack as ‘a response’ to Israeli ‘blows against Iran.’

‘The bitter enemies of the Iranian people and the Islamic Revolution have recruited most of their forces in order to harm us,’ he said in a speech reported by Israel’s Channel 2 TV. ‘They have indeed succeeded in inflicting blows upon us more than once, but have been rewarded with a far stronger response.’

He added: ‘The enemy believes it can achieve its aims in a long, persistent struggle against the Iranian people, but in the end it will not. We are working to ensure that.’

Ahmadinejad’s speech was interpreted in Israel as asserting that the Burgas bombing was a revenge attack for the killing of Iranian nuclear scientists, for which Iran has repeatedly blamed Israel.

His remarks contrasted with a condemnation of the Burgas bombing by the Iranian Foreign Ministry earlier Thursday.

‘The Islamic republic, the biggest victim of terrorism, believes terrorism endangers the lives of innocents… is inhumane and so strongly condemns’ it, the Arabic-language television channel Al-Alam cited foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast as saying. ‘Iran’s position is to condemn all terrorist acts in the world,’ he added.” Read more.

Of course, what they neglect to mention is that terrorizing Jews and Christians really isn’t terrorism since there is no such thing as an innocent Jew or Christian infidel in the eyes of Islam …
