Judge sets trial for Sami Al-Arian on criminal contempt charge in Alexandria VA March 9th 2009.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A federal judge ruled Friday that Sami Al-Arian will stand trial 0n March 9th 2009 on a criminal contempt charge, he previously pled guility to support of terrorism.

The former University of South Florida professor (and convicted terrorist supporter) had requested that the charge be dismissed based on "selective prosecution."

But, while U.S. District Court Judge Leonie Brinkema agreed with Al-Arian that such prosecutions are rare and that the facts of his case are "absolutely unique," the judge said a jury would have to decide if Al-Arian committed a crime.

According to federal prosecutors in Virginia, the criminal contempt charge stems from Al-Arian's refusal to testify before a grand jury about the actions of a Virginia think tank, the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT).

Over 16 years ago, the think tank gave $50,000 to WISE (World and Islam Studies Enterprise), a former think tank on Middle Eastern issues at USF run by Al-Arian. Federal prosecutors want Al-Arian to testify about the details of that transaction. But, according to documents filed by Al-Arian's attorneys, Al-Arian "did cooperate and answer questions on IIIT" for federal prosecutors.

This shows, wrote the attorneys, that the Virginia prosecutors are "ultimately not interested in IIIT … but want to revisit the Tampa trial." The Tampa trial ended in December 2005 when a jury acquitted Al-Arian of eight terrorism charges, some related to the financial transactions of WISE, and deadlocked on nine other charges, 10 to 2 in favor of acquittal, (Al-Arian pled guility, because he was guility to support of terrorism. Al-Arian pleaded guilty to Count Four of the indictment against him – a charge of conspiracy to make or receive contributions of funds, goods or services to or for the benefit of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad PIJ ).

At the upcoming criminal contempt trial, said the judge, "the jury will have the flesh on the bones of that case" and be given details. After the Tampa trial, Al-Arian signed a plea agreement, pleading guilty to one count of providing immigration services to associates of the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).

After the Supreme Court refused to hear the case, Brinkema took up the issue of criminal contempt again. "I can't believe that after all we've been through Sami has to go through another trial," said his wife, Nahla, as she and her husband left the courthouse. The trial is scheduled for March 9.

Fox 13 Anchor Russell Rhodes Charged With Resisting Arrest Without Violence, Then Why Did The Cop Body Slam Mr. Rhodes ?

TAMPA (Bay News 9) -- The morning news anchor at Fox 13 was arrested Friday night after deputies said he resisted arrest without violence (OH REALLY then why did the cop body slam Mr. Rhodes head first into the pavement ?).

According to reports, a deputy saw a 2006 BMW driving recklessly inside the Channelside parking garage shortly after 10 p.m. Friday. The deputy said Russell Rhodes was trying to exit through the toll area of the garage and attempting to back into cars behind him when he stopped him.

At that point, the deputy said Rhodes got out of the car with his belt and pants undone, although they were still up, and that he appeared to be confused and possibly intoxicated. The deputy said Rhodes tried to walk away twice after he was ordered to hand over his keys, and then he ran from the garage.

The deputy grabbed Rhodes, and when he began to flail his arms, the deputy took him to the ground, the report said (this appears to be a bear hug lift by the cop and body slammed head first into the pavement, look at Russell rhodes face in the photo).

Arrest report for Russell Rhodes. Rhodes had several cuts and bruises on his face, which spokesman J.D. Callaway said happened when he hit the ground (body slammed by the cop). Rhodes was taken to the emergency room at Tampa General Hospital, where he received treatment for his injuries.

If I were Mr Rhodes I would be contacting an attorney ASAP and filing a complaint with the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department, can you say excessive force, the cop could have fractured Mr. Rhodes skull.

He was then booked into Orient Road Jail on charges of resisting arrest without violence and released early Saturday morning on $500 bail. Callaway said that Rhodes apologized following the incident, saying that he panicked because he was worried about his job.

Blood samples were taken at the emergency room to determine whether Rhodes was intoxicated at the time of the incident. The results of the toxicology tests should be available next week, Callaway said.

SARASOTA MONEY MANGER ART NADEL IS MISSING AND SO IS ABOUT $350 MILLION IN INVESTORS MONEY



WORLD WIDE NEWS COVERAGE;
BBC NEWS...Florida fund manager 'missing' so is $350 Million.






Hedge Fund principal Arthur G. Nadel, a prominent player in Sarasota social and philanthropic circles, disappeared this week. His wife, Peg, filed a missing person report with law enforcement after finding a suicide note. Investors -- from individuals to the Sarasota YMCA Foundation -- in the funds branded Viking, Valhalla and Scoop were stunned this week to learn they may be victims in what could become the largest investment swindle in Southwest Florida history. Some are already calling the case a "mini-Madoff," after Bernard Madoff of New York, who has been accused of creating a $50 billion Ponzi scheme that promised similarly large percentage returns.



Art Nadel’s wife, Peg, and Quisenberry, were “concerned about his welfare,” Lesaltato said. Nadel had sounded “distraught,” Lesaltato said, citing the note. Scoop may have managed as much as $350 million, the Herald- Tribune in Sarasota reported today on its Web site. The newspaper said Nadel was a “prominent player in Sarasota social and philanthropic circles.” It described his note as a suicide note.


UPDATE 1/18/09 ...so much for Nadel's suicide, The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office confirmed that Nadel's light green Subaru was found Thursday afternoon at Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport, Some of the missing money may have been moved overseas. Costa Rica is nice this time of year and a haven for money laundering. Costa Rica is vulnerable to money laundering because of Internet gambling and offshore banks that are not fully supervised, according to the U.S. State Department , by bill Warner.




Art Nadel was last seen by his wife at 8:45 a.m. on Jan. 14 when he left for work, Lesaltato said. Sarasota police launched an investigation today after receiving calls since 1:30 p.m. concerning allegations about “hundreds of millions of dollars” missing, Captain William Spitler said in a telephone interview. Sarasota Police Department has turned over its investigation of Mr. Nadel's company, Scoop Management, to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Any person wishing to make a report regarding Scoop Management is requested to do so by emailing the FBI at tampa.division@ic.fbi.gov.


Computer-Guided Trading; Nadel, who graduated from New York University Law School, was a real estate developer during the 1960s, according to marketing documents for the Valhalla fund, which was incorporated in 1999. The Nadels and others started a firm two years earlier that used computer-generated investment and trading programs, according to the documents.


Calls to Scoop’s offices were answered by voice mail, Art Nadel also ran SCOOP CAPITAL, LLC out of the same location, 1618 Main St Sarasota, as SCOOP MANAGEMENT INC, both are active in the Florida Division of Corporations records . Among the business's run by Art Nadel were, SCOOP INVESTMENTS, LP 1668 MAIN ST SARASOTA FL. The contact phone number for SCOOP INVESTMENTS, LP on the Florida Fictitious name filing was 954-345-6442 this number belongs to Turn Key Hedge Funds Inc in Coral Gables Fl and they are active. Art Nadel was a former jazz pianist on the New York club scene, is said to be the one who did all the trading.


Prior investment business's run by Art Nadel out of the 1618 Main Street Sarasota location were, TRADERS INVESTMENT CLUB and the INDIGO INVESTMENT CLUB both Fictitious name registrations expired on 12/31/2003.


The disappearance of Nadel comes more than a month after Bernard Madoff, 70, was arrested for securities fraud after allegedly using billions of dollars from new investors to pay off older ones. Madoff told authorities that investors may have lost $50 billion in a “giant Ponzi scheme,” prosecutors said.


The Sarasota 'Mini-Madoff' is because Sarasota is a Mini New York City, many of the Sarasota residents who invested with Art Nadel are also residents of New York City (Manhattan) and possible investors with Madoff "what happens in in New York City happens is Sarasota Fl," the Sarasota Herald Tribune Newspaper is owned by the NY Times in NYC, articles published in the NY Times are published the same day in Sarasota Fl..

Somali Islamists execute Ethiopian 'spy' Abdirahman Ahmed "Allah's Enemy" he was the highest-profile execution by Al Shabaab under Sharia Law.












The Al-Shabaab terrorists operate their recruiting website out of the Dotster Web Co in Vancouver WA, USA and have been for over a year in violation of US State Department designation as a Specially Designated Terrorist Organization.

A statement on www.kataaib.net , one of several sites used by the militants, said Ahmed, was shot after he confessed to being "Allah's enemy" and a court found him guilty of trying to mastermind the re-capture of Kismayu.
UPDATE..The shut down of the Al-Shabaab website was first reported on Sunday 1/25/2009 at 10:01 pm by private investigator Bill Warner based on a tip from the US Military, see my post here, Sunday, January 25, 2009, SOMALI AL-SHABAAB TERRORIST RECRUITING WEBSITE HOSTED IN VANCOUVER WA USA, WWW.KATAAIB.NET APPEARS TO BE SHUT DOWN.

Reuters..January 16, 2009 11:01 AM.....MOGADISHU. Hardline Somali Islamist insurgents said on Friday they executed a politician accused of being a "spy" for Ethiopian troops and militia opposed to them.












Al Shabaab, which is on a U.S. list of terrorism groups, took Kismayu in August 2008 during its now two-year war against the Somali government and its Ethiopian military backers. It controls large swathes of south-central Somalia.
A local spokesman for al Shabaab, Sheikh Hassan Yacqub, said Ahmed had been warned several times to break ties with the Ethiopians and local militias who previously controlled Kismayu.

"He was in our jail for eight days and then we took him before the court, and finally we executed him according to Islamic sharia law," he told Reuters. "Anybody who spies for the non-believers will definitely face the death sentence."

Local residents said he had been buried in a place called the "non-believers' cemetery". Also on Friday, foreign and Somali media watchdogs said kidnappers had released a local journalist, Abdifatah Mohamed Elmi, who was kidnapped in August last year in Mogadishu.

Two foreign journalists taken with him, a Canadian and an Australian, are still missing. "The Somali journalist's release is obviously good news, but we will feel no relief until the kidnappers have also released the two foreign journalists," Reporters Without Borders said.

"Our concern about their fate is as strong as ever given the growing instability in Mogadishu. The African Union (AU) rebuked media on Friday for "negative" coverage of Somalia, saying the Ethiopian withdrawal from the city was a major step towards peace.

"It is sad to note that positive developments in Somalia are always overlooked while emphasis is put on negative events," it said in a statement by its peacekeeping mission in Mogadishu.

The AU, which has 3,500 soldiers in Somalia, took particular issue with some local media reports citing witnesses that al Shabaab group had taken over bases in Mogadishu. Addis Ababa pulled its troops from the city this week, two years after going in to oust a sharia courts movement that it saw as a threat to regional stability and linked to al Qaeda.

Chicago Muslim Terrorists Zubair Ahmed And Khaleel Ahmed Plead Guilty To Conspiracy to Provide Material Support To Al-Qaeda, recruited on the internet

WASHINGTON, Zubair Ahmed & Khaleel Ahmed pleaded guilty in Northern Dist of Ohio to conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists in connection with their efforts to murder or maim U.S. military forces in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Today's guilty pleas were announced by Matthew Olsen, Deputy Assistant Attorney General for National Security; William J. Edwards, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio; and C. Frank Figliuzzi, Special Agent in Charge, Cleveland Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Zubair Ahmed and his cousin Khaleel Ahmed (HIS PHOTO ABOVE) each pleaded guilty before Chief U.S. District Judge James G. Carr in Toledo, Ohio, to a one-count, superseding information charging them with conspiracy to provide material support and resources, including the defendants themselves as personnel, to terrorists in violation of Title 18, U.S.C. Section 2339A.

At sentencing, each defendant faces a statutory maximum of 15 years imprisonment and a $250,000 fine, followed by three years of supervised release. According to the superseding information and other information entered into the court record today: The criminal conspiracy involving Zubair and Khaleel Ahmed began no later than April 1, 2004, and continued until their arrests on Feb. 21, 2007.

As part of the conspiracy, the defendants made preparations to travel overseas in order to engage in acts that would result in the murder or maiming of U.S. military forces in either Iraq or Afghanistan. On or about May 21, 2004, the defendants traveled to Cairo, Egypt, with the intent of engaging in acts that would result in the murder or maiming of U.S. military forces in Iraq or Afghanistan.

After their return from Egypt, on or about July 4, 2004, Zubair and Khaleel Ahmed discussed, sought and received instruction on firearms from another individual in Cleveland. The defendants also sought and discussed training in counter-surveillance techniques and sniper rifles with this individual. Specifically, defendant Zubair Ahmed discussed his desire to learn how to use and move with a .50-caliber machine gun.

The final 2 members of the Toledo-Chicago terror crew pled guility TODAY, the radical cousins Zubair A. Ahmed, age 29, who had resided at 3504 Green Bay Road, Apartment 309C, North Chicago, Illinois, and his cousin, Khaleel Ahmed, age 28, who had resided at 4501 N. Keystone Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. Both are U.S. citizens.

See my prior post on the 3 Muslim Toledo used car dealers convicted in a linked terrorism case to Khaleel Ahmed, Friday, June 13, 2008, 3 in Ohio guilty of plot against US troops in Iraq, Toledo Muslim used car dealer Mazloum and his pals face life in prison.

On or about February 21, 2006, ZUBAIR and KHALEEL AHMED communicated by telephone. ZUBAIR advised KHALEEL, in part and in substance, that he had heard a radio report of the arrest of Separately Indicted Co-Conspirator A (in Toronto), and others (the 3 Muslim used car dealers in Toledo). ZUBAIR told KHALEEL, in part and in substance, that Separately Indicted Co-Conspirator A (in Toronto) could have gotten them in big trouble.

Canadian Security Intelligence Service first caught wind of a possible cell after a tip from British authorities, who had been monitoring the Internet movements of Younis Tsouli - a.k.a. "Irhabi 007" - a London man accused of operating a series of al-Qaeda-linked websites. Officials believe Tsouli was using one of his chat rooms to communicate with radical recruits in Toronto, Chicago and Atlanta.

The London court was told that Tsouli and his codefendants Waseem Mughal, 24, and Tariq al-Daour, 21, had close links to al-Qaeda in Iraq and posted videos, see one here, of its attacks on coalition forces and the beheading of Western hostages. “A lot of the funding that the brothers are getting is coming because of the videos. Imagine how many have gone after seeing the videos. Imagine how many have become shahid [martyrs].”

Syed Haris Ahmed and Ehsanul Sadequee in Atlanta GA are members of al-Muhajiroun and had been linked to the two radical cousins in Chicago Zubair A. Ahmed, age 29, who had resided at 3504 Green Bay Road, Apartment 309C, North Chicago, Illinois, and his cousin, Khaleel Ahmed, age 28, resides at 4501 N. Keystone Avenue, Chicago, Illinois.

Police believe the suspects in the alleged bomb plot in Toronto (and Atlanta) may have been part of a growing trend of cyber-jihadism that includes the Chicago Ahmed cousins. Canadian authorities estimate there are as many as 4,500 jihadist websites, and they've become the main networking tool for radicals. It is uncensored terrain and authorities say it is growing fast. There are calls to arms, even step-by-step instructions, from how to make an explosive, see video here, to where a suicide bomber should stand in a crowded bus for maximum impact.

As part of the conspiracy, the defendants also communicated with each other using code words and in a foreign language to disguise their preparations and plans to engage in acts abroad that would result in the murder or maiming of U.S. military forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Furthermore, Zubair and Khaleel Ahmed researched the purchase of firearms, methods of obtaining firearms instruction (including at least one visit to a firing range) and methods of obtaining instruction in gunsmithing. In addition, the defendants collected and distributed videos of attacks on U.S. military forces overseas, manuals on military tactics and military manuals on weaponry.

"Today's guilty pleas should send a strong message to individuals who would use this country as a platform to plot attacks against U.S. military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan," said Matthew Olsen, Deputy Assistant Attorney General for National Security. "This case also underscores the need for continued vigilance in identifying and dismantling extremist plots that develop within our nation."

C. Frank Figliuzzi, Special Agent in Charge, Cleveland Division, FBI, said: "This case is an example of our continued efforts to detect terrorist planning and to prevent acts of terrorism before they occur. Through close cooperation with our law enforcement partners in Illinois and Ohio, this case resulted in the successful prosecution of these individuals."

This case was investigated by the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force in Chicago, Illinois and Toledo, Ohio, with the assistance of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement; U.S. Customs and Border Protection; the Chicago Police Department; the Illinois State Police; the Ohio Highway Patrol; the Toledo Police Department; and the Lucas and Wood County Sheriff's Departments.

AL-SHABAAB TAKE OVER MOGADISHU SOMALIA

Ethiopian troops withdraw completely from Mogadishu Posted: 1/15/2009 7:25:00 AM MOGADIHSU The Ethiopian troops pulled out completely from the Somali capital Mogadishu, witnesses and officials told radio Shabelle on Thursday, Al-Shabbab take over.

“I can confirm you that there are not any Ethiopian soldiers in the capital Mogadishu. They emptied all their bases and moved overnight onto the southern road to Baidoa,” Abdifitah Ibrahim Sabriye (Shaaweye), deputy governor of Banadir Region, told radio Shabelle

Ethiopia invaded Somalia 2006 to help the interim government oust Islamists from the capital, since then it has been supporting Somalia’s weak transitional government for two years.

The Ethiopian presence was deeply unpopular with many Somalis and different groups were united in opposing them.

Residents say a lot of people have gathered in former Defence Ministry building and Digfer Hospital where the Ethiopian soldiers vacated. Residents expressed hope to return to their houses after two years.

Locals saw Ethiopian troops with their military trucks traveling on the long, tarmac road that connects Mogadishu and southwest regions of the country. The chairman of Hawiye Traditional Council Mohamed Hassan Haad said they would mediate the opposing Somali factions.

Abdirahim Isse Adow, the spokesman of the Islamic Courts Union called for the Somali people to work for peace and solidarity after the withdrawal of the Ethiopian troops. At least 24 people were killed and more than 50 others were injured Wednesday when Ethiopian troops shelled parts of Mogadishu.

Insurgents attacked departing Ethiopian soldiers. The Ethiopian troops armed with tanks and heavy artillery fought back and shelled parts of Mogadishu including Bakaro market.

Shabab spokesman says 'top leaders killed in central Somalia' MOGADIHSU (Sh. M. Network)-The spokesman of Al-shabab insurgent group, Sheik Muktar Abu Mansoor told reporters Wednesdayd in Mogadishu that they have lost two top leaders in the fighting that took place in Guriel town in central Somalia.

At least 30 people, mostly fighters, have been killed and more than fifty others wounded in a heavy fighting between Islamist fighters of Al-shabab and Ahlu Sunna Waljamaca that erupted in Gruel on 11 January 2009.

“Mohamed Mohamed Salad and Mohamed Yusuf Nur were martyred in Guriel,” said Abu Mansoor. Abu Mansoor says they fought in Guriel militias that Ethiopia armed them.

He also vowed they will continue fighting even after the Ethiopian troops pull out from Mogadishu. “We will strike AMISOM bases like the airport and K4,” he added.

The statement of Abu Mansoor comes as Ethiopian troops pulled strategic bases in Mogadishu. On Wednesday afternoon Islamic Courts Union forces have taken control of three police stations in north Mogadishu.

No Credible Threats Seen For Super Bowl, Officials Say, But Large Number of Cop ID Badges, Cop Uniforms & Equip Stolen from Hillsborogh County Sheriff

U.S. intelligence report says there is no credible threat of terrorist attacks at the Feb. 1 Super Bowl, but police said Wednesday that visitors should still expect the same type of heavy security typical of every Super Bowl since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

But, a Large Number of Cop ID Badges, Cop Uniforms and Cop Equipment Were Stolen From the Tampa, Hillsborogh County Sheriff's Office, in 2008.

In Australia Police thought Muslim cleric Benbrika might use one of his willing youths to walk into a popular Melbourne meeting place, such as a crowded AFL Football game, wearing a suicide bomb vest, this would be a lot easier if he (and others) was wearing a Cop uniform with Cop ID badge and carrying Cop equipment, this scenario is already on Al-Qaeda's radar, they love a big audience, say like 100 million viewers on Super Bowl Sunday February 1st 2009 ?

ELECTRONIC CHATTER...Al-Yaqin Media Center:: Exclusive interview with a Mujahid from al-Qaa’idah about upcoming strikes January 14, 2009. "When we strike the West, we strike with devastating hits that are different than what we practice in guerrilla warfare, which is called the ‘prick of needles.’ Our brothers have left for some time to all parts of the world and are waiting to receive the zero hour to implement operations. We ask Allah to guide the brothers who went out in support of Allah’s religion, blessing be to the Exalted.

Some of them even exist since the events of September 11th and they are from the original Americans who did not leave America; waiting for the go-ahead signal to implement. This is up to the discretion of our Shaykh Usama bin Ladin, may Allah protect him. There are others scattered around the globe awaiting orders, and they are absorbed among the people to eliminate attention and to increase their penetration in the centers of the anticipated strikes.

We know the strikes’ whereabouts, but we do not know the timing or the specific target and only the Shaykh knows, but we receive signals before the strike and we are asked to insist on supplication [to Allah], like what happened with the 11 September strikes and others. We knew that America would be hit within a few days, but we did not know the exact target. Now we know that there is an imminent strike against Europe and America, which is strong in the element of time and place, and there are so many, thus the mujahidin could choose what’s best.


See my prior post, Sunday, November 16, 2008, MUSLIM TERRORISTS PLANNED TO USE SUICIDE BOMBERS AT CROWDED FOOTBALL GAME TO KILL THOUSANDS, FUNDED THE PLOT WITH STOLEN CARS IN AUSTRALIA. Police who raided Benbrika's home found material which explained how to make such a vest. Exploding the device in the middle of a football crowd would physically damage surrounding fans and mentally damage the whole country.


While no specific threat was identified for the Super Bowl, a joint FBI and Homeland Security intelligence assessment obtained by The Associated Press cautions that Raymond James Stadium, the Super Bowl site, does not have the typical security features of permanently secure buildings, such as jails or military bases.

The federal report, dated Tuesday, said officials are also concerned that terrorists or criminals could impersonate government or military officials because some Florida law enforcement badges and uniforms were stolen in 2008.

The report says there is no credible information about impersonation plots. The report referred to a large number of credentials, uniforms sets and other law enforcement equipment that went missing last year from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, which patrols unincorporated areas around Tampa.

The Super Bowl is one of the biggest television events of the year, and more than 100 million people in 232 countries are expected to watch, the assessment said. Because of the high profile nature of the event, intelligence officials say they cannot discount the potential for a terrorist attack.

Terrorists are expected to continue to see stadiums and arenas as potential targets, according to a March 2008 intelligence assessment.
"Suicide bombers posing as police officers would be a huge Stadium problem".

"Al-Qaida could meet its objectives of mass casualties, economic damage, and psychological impact with an attack against a stadium or arena during an event in the United States," the 2008 assessment said.

In November 2008, a suicide bomber blew himself up near a stadium in Peshawar, Pakistan, killing four people and injuring 11, according to U.S. intelligence officials. This happened during the closing ceremony of the Inter-Provincial Games.

The Super Bowl threat assessment is based on information from local law enforcement, the FBI, Homeland Security Department, National Counterterrorism Center, United States Northern Command, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the Florida state intelligence fusion center.

Florida Private Investigator Robert A. Levinson, and Former FBI Agent, is Being Held in Iran Secret Prison says Sen. Bill Nelson.

Senator Says Former FBI Agent Who Vanished in 2007 Is in Secret Iran Prison; A U.S. senator revealed 1/13/09 that he believes a former FBI agent who disappeared in Iran nearly two years ago is being held in a secret prison, much to the surprise of the ex-FBI agent's wife.Sen.

Bill Nelson's comments on the disappearance of Robert Levinson came during Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's secretary of state confirmation hearing in Washington.

"I haven't received any information about my husband," Levinson's wife, Christine, told The Associated Press.Robert A. Levinson, a Florida private detective and former FBI agent, went missing on Iran's Kish Island in March 2007.

P.I. Robert Levinson has investigated Russian organized crime, Mr. Levinson was living in Coral Springs Florida.

P.I. Robert Levinson worked 30 years for the FBI and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and was employed as a private investigator at the time of his March 8, 2007 disappearance in Iran.

CIGARETTE SMUGGLING....Levinson disappeared during a trip to Kish Island in southern Iran. His wife said she had no idea what he was doing there, but noted that it was related to his job running a consulting firm. She told CNN that she believes Levinson met with Dawud "Salahuddin", an American fugitive who lives in Iran, shortly before Levinson's disappearance and that a man purporting to be Salahuddin called her "right when he disappeared."

"He said it was going to be fine and he'd [Levinson] be home in a couple days," Christine Levinson said, adding "that's the only contact" she has had from Iran. Last month, "Salahuddin" -- known in Iran as Hassan Abdulrahman -- told reporters that he saw Levinson shortly before he disappeared on Kish Island.

Dawud Salahuddin was born David T. Belfield in Roanoke Rapids, NC on November 10, 1950. He is most famous for the alleged murder of Iranian dissident Ali Akbar Tabatabai in Bethesda, MD in 1980. Salahuddin grew up in Bayshore, Long Island in a Baptist family, and attended Howard University for one semester. Dawud Salahuddin aka Dave Belfield is currently working as an editor for Press TV, the Tehran-based English language international television news channel which is funded by the Iranian government.

"Salahuddin" said he met Levinson at a hotel on Kish on March 8 in an effort to put Levinson in touch with Iranian authorities to help him investigate cigarette smuggling, as part of his contract work for a tobacco company.

This would be at the top end where the counterfeit cigarettes are re-packaged then shipped (smuggled) into US Ports like New York, New Jersey, Miami and Tampa Fl. Counterfeit cigarettes are openly sold in NYC at many local shops and are expertly made to look like famous British, American and European brands.

All over Chinatown NYC, cigarette butts dot the sidewalks: blue, white and brown ends labeled with names like Seven Wolves in Chinese, Shuanxshi and Yes in English. But the most common name is Marlboro Lights which go for $70.00 per carton retail in NYC.

The stubs are tangible evidence of the ready supply of illegal cigarettes in Chinatown, available at sidewalk stalls and variety stores, where they typically sell for $4 a pack — as much as $3.50 less than those sold legally. They include Chinese brands and knockoffs of popular American brands (Marlboro Lights) smuggled into the United States at $8.00 per carton, then sold retail at $70.00 per carton, all untaxed.

See my prior post, Friday, May 09, 2008, Cigarette Smugglers in New York City Funnel Money to Terror Groups...counterfeit cigarette sales are a major component in the financial support of terrorism, Florida Private investigator and ex-FBI agent Robert Levinson is an American hero.

Robert Levinson's Iranian contact, "Salahuddin", had converted to Islam and was given refuge in Iran after admitting in interviews to killing Ali Akbar Tabatabai, a former Iranian diplomat under the Shah, in Maryland in 1980.

He has repeatedly expressed a desire to return to the United States. "Salahuddin" said he was detained by Iranian officials in plain clothes and taken away from the room he shared with Levinson to be interrogated about his Iranian passport.

When he was freed the next day, he said, he was told by Iranian officials that Levinson had returned to Dubai (a lie). His story matches accounts that friends of Levinson's tell. They say Levinson feared he would be arrested after his meeting with "Salahuddin".

The U.S. does not have formal diplomatic ties with Iran and uses the Swiss government as an intermediary. Iran has refused access to Swiss investigators seeking to visit Kish Island.

After the disappearance of private investigator Robert Levinson, Iranian authorities stated that they had no knowledge of Levinson's disappearance or whereabouts. Levinson's wife, Christine Levinson, has led an effort to press both the U.S. and Iranian governments to pursue the case.

Her crusade was taken up by the U.S. Senate in November 2008, when Florida Senator Bill Nelson introduced a resolution to press the Iranian regime for information on Levinson.

Sen. Bill Nelson revealed on January 13, 2009, that he believed Levinson was being held in a secret Iran prison. Despite Nelson's personal revelations, Levinson's wife maintained that she had heard no news on her husband's whereabouts.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the U.S. State Department or the Levinson family at www.helpboblevinson.com.

UGG-ly Jihad: Overpriced Boot Company Gives You Another Reason Not to Buy, Scarf Worn by Model is OfficIal Head Gear of Somalia Al-Shabaab Terrorists



















Scarf Worn by UGG Model is Official Head Gear of Somalia Al-Shabaab Terrorists.

DEBBIE SCHUSSEL; "No, I am not one of the many doltish American (and those of other nationalities) who threw out $200-$300 on the most ugly, overpriced boots imaginable. But, price and hideousness aside, the Ugg folks now provide us with another reason not to patronize them. The company is based in Australia, which is overrun by Muslim extremists. They know what the keffiyeh is and what it now stands for, which we all know is jihad. They've seen the Nicholas Berg and other such videos. They've seen the HAMAS parades".

The scarf the model is wearing in the UGG Boots Ad is the same scarf worn by the Al-Shabaab terrorists, (linked to al-Qaeda), who are taking over Somalia and have entered into Mogadishu to install Islamic Sharia Law, beheading, flogging, stoning to death for minor infractions (or none at all).

Osama Bin Laden tape A Call for Jihad to Stop the Israeli Aggression against Gaza"

Bin Laden tape calls for Gaza jihad; Osama bin Laden has been a staunch critic of both the United States and Israel. Osama bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda, is reported to have issued a video recording calling on Muslims to wage jihad against Israel over its offensive in Gaza.

Osama bin Laden has called for Muslims to wage a holy war against Israel over the invasion of Gaza. The recording, which was dated to the current month in the Islamic calendar and called "A Call for Jihad to Stop the Aggression against Gaza", was posted on websites on Wednesday.

"God has bestowed us with the patience to continue the path of jihad for another seven years, and seven and seven years," the voice on the tape, purported to be that of bin Laden, said. "The question is, can America continue its war with us for several more decades to come? Reports and evidence would suggest otherwise."

It was not possible to independently identify the voice on the tape. The 22-minute audio statement said jihad was necessary to restore "Jerusalem and Palestine".

It criticised the way Arab governments have handled the war Israel has been waging in Gaza for 19 days. Nearly 1,000 Palestinians have been killed in the onslaught, and more than 4,000 others injured over the last three weeks. Israel says 13 Israelis have been killed. Ten Israeli soldiers and three civilians hit by rockets fired from the Gaza Strip have been killed in the violence. Israel has continued to drop bunker-busting bombs on around 35 smuggling tunnels under the Gaza-Egypt border in a bid to halt Hamas re-arming.

Thousands of people have taken to the streets across the Arab world in anger and protest against the attacks, but Arab government have responded with little concrete action against Israel. The speaker on Wednesday's tape hailed the global financial crisis as a decline in US influence around the world and said it would, in turn, weaken Israel - one of Washington's closest allies.

Gordon Johndroe, a US White House spokesman, said: "It appears this tape demonstrates his isolation and ... looks to be an effort to raise money as part of [al-Qaeda's] ongoing propaganda campaign."

Tampa Muslim Mafia Boss Khaldoun “Tony” Khalil Khawaja Runs Smuggled and Stolen Cigarette Scam


Exhibit No. 003-0085 is the most chilling. Translated from Arabic by federal investigators in the case against the Holy Land Foundation, an alleged Hamas front, the secret document outlines a full-blown conspiracy by the major Muslim groups in America all of which are considered "mainstream" by the media.
 
In fact, they are part of the "Ikhwan," or Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of Hamas, al-Qaida and other major Islamic terror groups. They have conspired to infiltrate American society with the purpose of undermining it and turning it into an Islamic state. They include the Islamic Society of North America the umbrella organization and the North American Islamic Trust, which controls most of the mosques in America and is the forerunner to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, this country's most visible Muslim-rights group.


All three have been cited as unindicted co-conspirators in the case, with all three sharing membership in the Muslim Brotherhood. Yet all have claimed, in the wake of 9/11, to be moderate, even patriotic.


The Tampa (Iraqi) Shiite used car dealers who were exporting vehicles, operated out of the Port of Tampa and the Port of Savannah, vehicles were purchased at salvaged auto auctions and or from street hustlers of recent stolen vehicles. Stolen vehicles were disassembled, the engine and transmission taken out and then shipped with the hull of the vehicle packed in shipping containers as "auto parts" and sent to Dubai UAE.


As such the U. S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the various U.S. Ports do not check the "VIN" (vehicle identification number) of exported "auto parts" and upon receiving the "auto parts" in Dubai (were whole industries exist to do just such work, including welding back together vehicles that had been cut apart) the vehicles are reassembled and sold at 2 to 3 times the retail that is obtainable in the USA, older vehicles are shipped into Iraq to be used as car bombs, see FBI report here that indicates that at least dozens of USA cars have been used as car bombs in Iraq.


A long time Tampa Sami Al-Arian associate and used car dealer in Virginia is convicted terrorist bagman Abdurahman Alamoudi who also ran a used car dealership in Virginia, ALAMOUDI WAS THE OWNER OF THE SHIRLINGTON AUTO MART-USED CAR LOT IN ARLINGTON VA, currently Alamoudi is doing 23 years at the Federal Transfer Center (FTC) in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, which is an administrative facility housing male and female holdover offenders, a US federal prison, for illegal financial transactions and for his involvement in a scheme to assassinate Crown Prince Abdullah (now King) of Saudi Arabia.


Alamoudi was caught with $340,000 in cash, 34 bundles of sequentially numbered $100 bills to be used to pay terrorists to kill the Saudi Crown prince (now King), money indirectly from the same Jeddah Saudi individuals linked in the Iraq Study Report who are funding al-Qaeda terrorists in Iraq. Alamoudi was brought to Tampa Fl in 2005 to testify against Sami al-Arian, Alamoudi was booked into the Hillsborough County Jail on 7/19/2005 and stayed there until 11/01/2005, but never went to Court to testify against his buddy Al-Arian ?


TAMPA SMUGGLED CIGARETTE SCHEME UP IN SMOKE, ARRESTED ARE KHALDOUN "TONY" KHAWAJA AND 5 OTHERS, A SEARCH WARRANT WAS SERVED AT THE MAIN STREET GROCERY.. TAMPA, FL--A scheme to facilitate the theft and resale of smuggled cigarettes has been uncovered as the result of "Operation Up in Smoke", an ongoing criminal investigation run by the Tampa Bay Regional Domestic Security Task Force (RDSTF).  Tampa Muslim Mafia Boss Khaldoun “Tony” Khalil Khawaja.


After the terrorist events of September 11, 2001, and the national focus on homeland security, specific responsibility for the identification of Florida's domestic security issues and the coordination of State responses was tasked to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.


While foreign and domestic terrorism remains a critical concern of the federal government, state and local governments clearly have an essential role safeguarding citizens, preventing domestic terrorism, and responding to any domestic security event or incident should one occur. RDSTF investigators also identified a suspect who solicited undercover agents for help in procuring sex from children.


According to Lance Newman, Florida Department of Law Enforcement special agent in charge and, Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee, RDSTF co-chairs, intelligence collected by law enforcement agencies throughout the United States indicated that the proceeds from the sale of stolen property, particularly SMUGGLED CIGARETTES and BABY FORMULA in convenience stores, have allegedly been forwarded to foreign groups associated with funding terrorist organizations (like the Palestinian Islamic Jihad which has numerous links in Tampa).


Store owners "fencing" stolen/smuggled cigarettes and baby formula reap substantial profits because the retail value of the stolen goods is substantially higher than prices paid to the thieves. Based on these circumstances, the Tampa Bay RDSTF initiated an investigation.


In February 2004, the Tampa Bay RDSTF received information from the Jacksonville RDSTF that a Tampa resident, Adil Abdel Hader, 58, was allegedly involved in an organized criminal enterprise that purchased stolen cigarettes derived from "smash and grab" burglaries throughout Central Florida.


Through a series of undercover operations, agents identified suspects, including Hader, who purchased stolen cigarettes at prices well below wholesale value and resold them through convenience stores whom Hader either controlled or with whom he was associated. Smuggled Cigarettes totaling approximately $45,000 in value were purchased by suspects who were told they had been stolen.


IN EARLY 2008 TWO MEMBERS OF THIS "CREW' WERE ARRESTED AGAIN ON SIMILAR CHARGES WITH STOLEN/SMUGGLED CIGARETTES, THEY HAD BEEN ON FLORIDA STATE FELONY PROBATION, THEY WERE CHARGED AGAIN AND CONVICTED AGAIN, NOW THEY ARE ON "DOUBLE SECRET PROBATION" WITH NO JAIL TIME, ONLY IN FLORIDA.


Contacts with Hader also led to the revelation that Hader was allegedly interested in procuring young children for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity with them. On at least four occasions, sometimes in graphic detail, Hader told undercover officers that he was interested in sex with young girls and boys and that he would be willing to pay for the arranged meetings.


A list of suspects arrested and charges follows (these men pled out and were put on Florida State felony probation):
Abil Abdel Hader Solicitation Commit Sexual Battery Dealing Stolen Property.
Khaldoun Khalil "Tony" Khawaja Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.
Salim Yousef Suleiman Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.
Said Ibrahim Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.
Tariq Hammad Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.
Victor Javier Reyes Dealing in Stolen Property


Search warrants were executed at the Main Street Grocery, 2117 W. Main Street, Tampa; Bearss Meat and Groceries, 1450 N. Skipper Rd. #48, Tampa; Price is Right Market, 4008 N. 34th Street, Tampa; Ybor Restaurant, 3402 N. 15th Street, Tampa and Sav-Mor Market, 1900 N. Rome Ave., Tampa.


Now everyone knows the truth. The Muslim establishment that publicly decries the radical fringe —represented by Hamas and al-Qaida may actually be a part of it. The only difference is that they use words and money instead of bombs to accomplish their subversive goals.


Over the past two decades they have constructed, with Saudi money, an elaborate infrastructure of support for the bad guys right under our noses. They even brag about putting "beehives" (Islamic centers) in every major city. These exhibits which so far have been ignored by major media outside the Dallas area, where the trial is under way completely blow the mainstream Muslim NGOs' cover as pro-American moderates. Many, if not most, aren't.


This is their real agenda, spelled out in black and white. It should help investigators build a RICO case to dismantle the entire terror-support network in America. Many have suspected it, but now we have proof that there is a secret underworld operating inside America under the cover of fronts with legitimate-sounding names.


It even uses charities to launder money for violent hits on enemies. It's highly organized, with its own internal bylaws and security to avoid monitoring from law enforcement.


Sounds like the Mafia. But unlike the mob, this syndicate is religious in nature and protected by political correctness. More evidence like this should put an end to such nonsense.
