Jose Gomez Borjas stated there was a lot of competition among “Arabs” for stolen infant formula using illegal immigrants from Honduras as "boosters".

Jose Gomez Borjas stated there was a lot of competition among “Arabs” for stolen infant formula and they are using illegal immigrants from Honduras and Mexico as "boosters".

Middle Eastern criminal enterprises involved in the organized theft and resale of infant formula in the USA are using illegal immigrants to
'boost' infant formula. These Middle Eastern criminal enterprises pose not only a economic threat, but a public health threat to infants, and a source of material support to terrorist organizations such as Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) which have connections in Tampa Fl.

The use of illegal immigrants from Honduras and Mexico as "boosters" who use false ID by Middle Eastern criminal enterprises is growing (see March 2009 arrests Central Florida) and moving onto the internet, EBay recently carried more than 1,000 offers of Enfamil baby formula on their website.

Abdul Hakim Azzam has been involved in buying and selling large quantities of stolen infant formula in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and throughout the United States. The FBI has numerous ongoing national investigations which have identified retail theft groups, fences, wholesalers, and distributors operating nationwide who are involved in the theft and fencing of infant formula. In February 2002, Abdul hakim AZZAM of Milwaukee, Wisconsin was identified as a subject of this investigation.

FBI developed information that revealed AZZAM and his nephew, Mahmoud Bassar, a/k/a “Mack,” were purchasing stolen infant formula and over-the-counter medications from fences in North Carolina and Atlanta Georgia. Shipments of stolen infant formula were transported from North Carolina and Atlanta Georgia to AZZAM in Milwaukee by means of interstate commercial freight carriers, and were consigned to Penny Saver Food Market. AZZAM operates a small grocery store at 510 West Vine Street in Milwaukee named “Penny Saver Food Market.”

AZZAM also wrote checks from the Penny Saver Food Market bank account to obtain significant amounts of cash to pay off the retail theft groups (immigrants from Honduras and Mexico) and fences in North Carolina and Georgia.

On January 10, 2005,
Jose Vidal Castellanos made the following statements to law enforcement officials in North Carolina regarding the theft and sale of stolen infant formula Castellanos met Abdul AZZAM and Mahmoud Bassar approximately four years ago in North Carolina where they negotiated the arrangement to work together buying and selling stolen infant formula.

On January 10, 2005, cooperating defendant Jose Gomez Borjas (“Gomez”) made the following statements to law enforcement officials in North Carolina regarding the theft and sale of stolen infant formula: Gomez stated there was a lot of competition among “Arabs” for the stolen infant formula. Gomez sold to whoever paid the best price for the products. Gomez used ABF Freight to ship the stolen infant formula from North Carolina and Georgia to AZZAM and Bassar. Gomez used the Penny Saver name on the paperwork as the shipper and receiver.

In March 2009 twenty one immigrants from Honduras and Mexico were arrested in Central Florida (Orlando) they had been involved in a 5 year and $17.5 million dollar Stolen Infant formula theft ring part of a nationwide baby formula theft ring.

All of the suspects were in the country illegally and came to Florida from Atlanta, Ga., simply to steal baby formula, according to the press release.

They were all paid between $100 and $300 a day for the thefts. Those arrested were: Nery Rodriguez, 24; Johny Zuniga, 23; Jose Urrutia, 26; Lucia Reyes, 30; Melba Ovellana, 31; Carlos Chacon, 22; Dania Hernandez, 24; Nelson Matute, 24; Carlos Hernandez, 23; Silvia Hernandez, 18; Neolvy Garcia, 24; Alexander Ponce, 25; Jefery Colindres, 20; Jose Chirinos-Hernandez, 25; Carmen Banega-Castillo, 22; Jessie Lopez, 36; Blanca Sevilla, 41; Eli Nimrod Castillo-Almendarez, 29; Eber Ramon Escalante-Almendarez, 19; David Ruiz, 26; and Sonya Ponce, 27.

Blanca Sevilla, 41, was arrested Jan. 7 by the Sebring Florida Police Department on charges of petty theft, felony battery and giving a false ID to a law enforcement officer. Castillo-Almendarez was reportedly renting a storage unit in Orlando. The
stolen formula was shipped from Florida to North Carolina and Atlanta GA for repackaging and selling.

Lebanese Pop Star Suzanne Tamim Killers To Be Executed, Egyptian tycoon Hesham Talaat Moustafa to hang confirmed by "Mufti" as Moustafa reads Koran.

Lebanese Pop Star Suzanne Tamim Killers To Be Executed, Egyptian tycoon Hesham Talaat Moustafa to hang confirmed by "Mufti" as Moustafa reads Koran !

UK, Thursday June 25, 2009 The death sentences handed down to an Egyptian tycoon and a hitman for murdering a Lebanese pop star on July 28th 2008 have been confirmed. Hesham Talaat Moustafa was convicted of paying a hitman $2m (£1.2m) to kill Suzanne Tamim, 30, at her apartment in Dubai.

Media reports labelled the attack an act of revenge after she ended her relationship with Moustafa. The death sentences for Moustafa and security man Muhsen el Sukkari, who carried out the murder, were referred to
Ali Gomaa, Egypt's mufti and a religious authority appointed by the state, on May 21.

The mufti's approval is sought to confirm a death sentence but it automatically goes to appeal. The verdict in May was greeted with shock in Egypt where
members of the elite are generally regarded as being above the law and where reporting of the trial was banned.


See complete coverage of the case here, Prior post; Sunday, August 10, 2008, MURDER OF SEXY SINGER SUZANNE TAMIM LINKED TO EGYPTIAN CONSTRUCTION GURU HISHAM TALAAT MOUSTAFA, $2 MILLION FOR THE HIT.Mr Mubarak’s regime has become notorious for its close links with wealthy businessmen and Moustafa was no exception. He ran a real estate conglomerate worth several billion dollars.

See Prior post; Tuesday, September 02, 2008, Egyptian property mogul, Hisham Talaat Mustafa arrested in Sexy Suzanne Tamim murder in Dubai, the Egyptian Tycoon hired a hitman.

Moustafa and Sukkari were inside a cage in court for the latest hearing and read the Koran before the judge confirmed the sentence. Sukkari was reported to have tricked the singer into opening her door in Dubai by posing as a representative of the building owners. He then stabbed her with a knife, the indictment said.

Sukkari later dumped bloody clothes near the crime scene, leaving DNA, prosecutors said. Evidence also included phone calls between Moustafa, who was born in 1959, and Sukkari. Tamim rose to fame after winning the top prize in a television show in 1996.

The murder of Suzanne Tamim, a 30-year-old Lebanese singer, sparked a tabloid sensation when photographs of her lying dead with her throat slashed leaked across the Middle East after her killing last July 28th.

Violent Islamist Extremism: Al-Shabaab Recruitment in America on the Internet in Boston, Seattle, San Diego, Columbus OH, Minneapolis and Atlanta GA

Violent Islamist Extremism: Al-Shabaab Recruitment in America on the Internet. The crisis in the Horn of Africa, which included the invasion of Somalia by Ethiopia, has attracted the rapt attention of Somali diaspora communities and heightened their nationalistic sentiments.

Extremist recruiters play upon these nationalistic sentiments to rally elements of the diaspora with well-produced videos of heroic Somalis engaged in combat against historic rivals, tactics that enhance their fundraising and recruitment efforts.

The Somali-American youth who have traveled abroad to join and fight for al-Shabaab were likely exposed to al-Shabaab’s extremist ideology in the United States, most likely through sustained interaction with extremists—in person and via the Internet—and exposure to jihadist literature and videos circulated on the Internet.

Al-Shabaab’s official website had regularly provided links to al-Qa`ida’s al-Sahab media that endorse violent jihad in Somalia before being shut down by the US Government order on Jan 23rd 2009 !

The Al-Shabaab website had been hosted in Vancouver WA and played to the large Somali youth audience in the USA. See the Vancouver WA Columbian Newspaper's article on the Al-Shabaab website by clicking on "In Out View-Interent Censor", the Columbian Newspaper's attack piece on private investigator Bill Warner that was run on May 7th, 2008, criticizing his efforts to shut down the Al-Shabaab terrorist website .

The website has been re-established with DYNADOT, LLC and the site has a banner reading "Coming Soon:"

Measuring the impact al-Qa`ida propaganda has had in motivating Somali-Americans to fight in Somalia is imprecise at best, nor can we reliably weight the individual effects of clan, ethnic identity, anti-Ethiopian sentiment, or jihadist ideology that influenced recent travelers to Somalia.

Readers of jihadist websites like are mostly Muslims who may sympathize with but are unaffiliated with al-Qa`ida or al-Shabaab. East African-based Al-Qa`ida figure Saleh Nabhan in a video posted online in August declared that training camps in Somalia and elsewhere were open and called for Muslims everywhere to assist the Somali jihad. The video was distributed on behalf of al-Shabaab and had English subtitles.

FBI Eyes Somalis in Boston, Seattle, San Diego, Columbus OH, Minneapolis and Atlanta GA, " We see a lot more Internet recruiting being targeted to Somalia youth in the USA."

The Twin Cities area has been at the center of the federal investigation ever since a 27-year-old from Minneapolis blew himself up in a Al-Shabaab suicide attack in Somalia last fall. But other cities with large Somali populations are being scrutinized, too: Boston, Seattle, San Diego and Columbus OH, which has the second-largest population of Somali refugees in the United States behind Minneapolis -- an estimated 40,000 to 50,000 people.

There is terrorist recruitment taking place in Minnesota, said Clarkston GA police chief Tony J. Scipio. That's why his department and the FBI are looking for anything similar in the Somali-American community here in Clarkston Ga (near Atlanta). Terror recruiters are quickly becoming adept at online tactics, noted Young "We see a lot more Internet recruiting being targeted to our youth."

Though much of the blame for the missing Somali youth has been directed at local mosques, there are signs that the youth, galvanized by the 2006 Ethiopian invasion of Somalia, may have radicalized themselves.

Ethiopia’s invasion, widely believed to be supported by the Bush administration, “has attracted the rapt attention of Somali Diaspora communities and heightened their nationalistic sentiments,” Andrew Liepman testified before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee in March.

Andrew Liepman is the deputy director of intelligence at the National Counterterrorism Center. Extremist elements like al-Shabaab, a Somali group designated a terrorist organization by the U.S., have exploited the bitter reaction to the Ethiopian invasion and compelled young, despondent Somali men to join their ranks.

As a result, some of the men may have sold assets or worked overtime to pay the airfare to Somalia. A source close to one of the missing young men, Abdisalam, also known as “Bullet-head,” said that he sold his car just a few weeks before he left last year.

At least a handful of the vanished youth have had decent paying jobs. A young man who uses the pseudonym “Abu Muslim” and claims to be a 23-year-old from Minneapolis, told a local radio station in Somalia that no one had recruited him to fight. “I chose to join the cause of jihad in my country,” he said in broken Somali, a clear sign that he grew up in the Diaspora.

In early 2009, al-Shabaab released a sophisticated 31-minute propaganda video designed to appeal to Diaspora Somalis. The star of the video is a Caucasian man who calls himself “Abu Mansoor,” the American. He commands an English-speaking unit of about two-dozen men, thought to be Somalis bred in the West. A Somali member of the unit, whose face is obscured, says in an American accent that he never thought he’d be leaving the comfort of home to carry an AK-47 in defense of his country.

USA Right Wing Bloggers Support Iranian Mir-Hossein Mousavi He Was Behind The Bombing Of Marine Barracks In Beirut Lebanon

USA Right Wing Bloggers Support Iranian Mir-Hossein Mousavi He Was Behind The Bombing Of Marine Barracks In Beirut Lebanon, Have US Marines Murdered In Beirut Been Forgotten?

Mir Hossein Mousavi’s leadership back in the 1980s was not a peaceful one. It was at the time when Iran was actively trying to push its revolution abroad. Iranian dissidents were killed at the time, but for the past 25 years Mousavi has laid low on the radar and tried to step away from the political scene. Now that he is back, there is a piece of history from his past that many people are either unaware of, or are intentionally ignoring.

Mir Hossein Mousavi was the Prime Minister of Iran between 1981 and 1989. At the time there were a series of attacks on US property in Lebanon’s Beirut. Both suicide bombing attacks happened in 1983. The one on the American embassy there claimed more than 60 lives, primarily embassy staff and American Marines. Another one struck the American Marines’ own barracks, killing 299 American servicemen.

As the highest official in Iran in 1980s, Mir Hossein Mousavi was not only directly connected to the assassination of American citizens, but is also believed to have actually handpicked the men who later were held responsible for these attacks. The sources who state this aren’t his Iranian opponents, but Americans.

The most notable are former CIA operative Robert Perry and the chief naval officer at the time Admiral James Lyons. Both men were privy to a lot of information, given their jobs. Admiral Lyons later said that at the time they were wire tapping the Iranian Ambassador to Great Britain and this is where they got their information from. Both Perry and Lyons point their fingers directly at Mir Hossein Mousavi, saying there is blood on his hands.

Right Wing bloggers in the USA, who most likely have never opened up a history book in their life, are posting such idiotic articles as IRAN: DAY 13 OF THE REVOLUTION and THE SILENCE OF OBAMA June 23, and "Mousavi vows to continue fight against "rigged" vote", supporting Mir-Hossein Mousavi who was behind the Marine Barracks Bombing Beirut Lebanon in 1983, what a fool. See "Mousavi, Celebrated in Iranian Protests, Was the Butcher of Beirut" The Iranian ambassador received instructions from the foreign minister to have various groups target U.S. personnel in Lebanon, but in particular to carry out a 'spectacular action' against the Marines.

Debbie Schlussel has posted a scathing rebuke of "others" who blog for Mir-Hossein Mousavi "Soylent Green Revolution Syndrome": Mousavi Masterminded Hezbo Murder of U.S. Marines where she also points out that "Mousavi founded the Hezbollah terrorist group which murdered over 300 U.S. Marines and Embassy officials in Beirut and is allied with Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the mastermind of the Hezbollah bombing murders of over 114 innocent people at the Jewish community center and Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires Argentina in the '90s".

Evidence of Financial Links Between Saudi Royal Family and Al Qaeda 500 Toyota pick-up trucks to Taliban, PI Bill Warner exposed the trucks in 2006.

Evidence of Financial Links Between Saudi Royal Family and Al Qaeda 500 Toyota pick-up trucks given to Taliban from Saudi Intel Service and Turki al-Faisal, private investigator Bill Warner exposed the existence of the trucks in 2006. CLICK IMAGES ABOVE TO ENLARGE.
An Afghan guy by the name of Said Jalal brokered the deal to bring 500 Toyota pick-up trucks to Afghanistan and Mullah Omar in 1995 that was very important as the Taliban had been defeated in Islmabad and were down.
One Billion Riyals, Saudi money ($267,000,000.) from what appears to be the Saudi Intelligence Service who at that time was run by Turki al-Faisal. Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud (DOB February 15, 1945), most commonly referenced as Turki Al-Faisal is the former Director General of Saudi Arabia's Al Mukhabarat Al A'amah, the Kingdom's former ambassador to the United Kingdom and Ireland, and served as Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States from July 2005 until December 11, 2006.

New York Times, are shown here. Lawyers for the Saudi royal family deny any connection to the financing of Al Qaeda and say the links claimed by the Sept. 11 families are tenuous and misleading.
In an attempt to link members of the Saudi royal family to the financing of Al Qaeda, lawyers for Sept. 11 families and their insurers have collected several hundred thousand pages of interview transcripts, government reports, financial records, court testimony and other material.

Four of the documents, not entered in the court record but provided to the
The Supreme Court is expected to decide this week whether to take up the case; lower courts have found that the Saudis cannot be sued in U.S. court based on a 1976 law giving sovereign immunity to foreign nations and their leaders.

The presence of these Toyota vehicles raises questions, given that Afghanistan has been subjected for five years to one of the strictest economic sanctions ever applied by the United Nations and the US Government.

Toyota's unease at being associated with the Taliban and Al Qaeda is evident. In its September 2001 statement, the company said, "Toyota does not have a sales or distribution channel in Afghanistan, and we do not export vehicles to that country." "Any other Toyota products presently in the country have probably arrived from neighboring countries via unofficial channels" - that is, they were smuggled from Dubai, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia to Iran and Pakistan and into Afghanistan.

It's all about the cars and trucks, supplied by Muslim car dealers in Saudi Arabia in support of terrorism ! There is no army on earth as mobile as the Taliban. Piled into the back of hundreds of open Toyota Hilux pick-up trucks, their vehicle of choice, and carrying no possessions other than their weapons, the Taliban Calvary can move nimbly ("Toyota does not have a sales or distribution channel in Afghanistan, and does not export vehicles to that country.") .

Few of the Taliban have any education beyond years spent in the madrassas, the fundamentalist religious schools in Pakistan that have produced an endless supply of Taliban (and suicide bombers) for more than a decade.

He is the youngest son of the late King Faisal by Princess Effat Al-Thuniyyan, brother of foreign minister, Saud al Faisal, and a nephew of the present King Abdullah. "Turki al-Faisal hand a check for one billion Saudi riyals (now worth about $267 million) to a top Taliban leader".

4 Muslim "Fundamentalist" Terrorists Who Murdered Buffalo NY Diplomat John Granville in Sudan Get Death by Hanging

4 Muslim "Fundamentalist" Terrorists Who Murdered Buffalo NY Diplomat John Granville (his photo above) in Sudan Get Death by Hanging.

KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) - Story Published: Jun 24, 2009 at 11:15 AM EDT. A Sudanese court convicted five people Wednesday in the slaying of an American diplomat last year and sentenced four of them to death. Gunmen firing from a car killed John Granville and his Sudanese driver on Jan. 1, 2008, as he was returning home from a New Year's party in Khartoum, Sudan's capital.

Granville, from Buffalo, N.Y., worked for the U.S. Agency for International Development. The 33-year-old was working to implement a 2005 peace agreement between Sudan's north and south that ended more than two decades of civil war.

It was the first time an American had been killed in Sudan since 1973, when two diplomats were assassinated by Palestinian militants. Four of the defendants were convicted of murder, possession of firearms and other charges and sentenced to death by hanging, they were Muslim "fundamentalists" terrorists see prior story below from 2/10/08.

A Sudanese government official said that the attack appeared well planned. The assailants’ car sped in front of the diplomat’s car, cutting it off (near his home). Two gunmen got out of their car, with one of them shooting Mr. Granville and the other shooting the driver, the official said, 17 shots were pumped into the two victims.....that is not a random shooting it is a professional hit, a standard assaination technique used by al-Qaeda.

Sudan holds Muslim "fundamentalists" over US killing, Sun 10 Feb 2008, 12:45 GMT, By Andrew Heavens.....KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Sudan has arrested two Muslim "fundamentalists" in connection with the killings of a U.S. aid official and his driver in the capital Khartoum, security sources said on Sunday.

The two men, aged 25 and 30, were members of a group that was also behind a plot to bomb Western embassies in Khartoum that was uncovered in August, the security source told Reuters.

It was the first official confirmation that a militant group may have been behind the double shooting. Some official sources in Sudan originally claimed that the killing was an "isolated incident".

The suspects opened fire when they were cornered on Saturday in a suburb of Omdurman, a city adjacent to the Sudanese capital, the SUNA state news agency reported. Security officers returned the fire.

Two policemen, a passing woman and the two suspects were wounded, none seriously, said the security source. "They are from the same group who tried to do the explosions ...
They are fundamentalists," the source added, referring to the reported August bomb plot.

Extremists sentence Somalis to amputations, Al-Shabaab will cut off right arm and left leg for theft, Al-Shabaab directly links to Al-Qaeda see 2008 L

Extremists sentence Somalis to amputations, Al-Shabaab will cut off right arm and left leg for theft, Al-Shabaab directly links to Al-Qaeda see 2008 LA Times article.

Monday 6/22/2009......MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — A court run by a extremist Islamic group Al-Shabaab sentenced four Somali men on Monday to each have a hand and a leg cut off for allegedly stealing mobile phones and guns. The ruling prompted an outcry from human rights activists.

The group, which controls much of Somalia, is trying to drive out the government and install a strict form of Islam. The court that handed down the sentence in Somalia's capital is run by al-Shabab, one of the nation's most powerful insurgent groups. The U.S. considers al-Shabaab a terrorist group with links to al-Qaeda, which al-Shabaab denies (Lie).

We have convicted them of theft, so they deserve to have their arms and legs amputated," said Sheik Abdul Haq, the al-Shabaab judge in the capital, Mogadishu. Al-Shabab has carried out amputations and other punishments elsewhere in Somalia, but they are rare in the capital.

Amnesty International appealed to al-Shabab not to carry out the "cruel, inhuman and degrading punishments." Somalia's government is under attack by Al-Shabaab militants who want to topple the administration and install a strict Islamic state. A surge in violence in recent weeks, which diplomats said is a major push by the insurgents to force the government out of its Mogadishu strongholds, has killed about 225 people. Last week, the national security minister and Mogadishu's police chief were among those killed.

By Edmund Sanders, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer Monday, August 25, 2008;
After once denying or downplaying links to the terrorist network, a senior leader of Somalia's most notorious Islamic militia Al-Shabaab, now acknowledges that his group has long-standing ties to Al Qaeda (1993 Black Hawk down Mogadishu) and says he is seeking to forge a closer relationship."We are negotiating how we can unite into one," said Muktar Robow, a top military commander of Al-Shabaab, which the U.S. State Department designated a terrorist organization in 2008.

"We will take our orders from Sheik Osama bin Laden because we are his students." Merging with Al Qaeda operatives in the region makes sense, he said, given the recent U.S. crackdown, including a May 1, 2008 airstrike that killed Shabab's previous commander.

"Al Qaeda is the mother of the holy war in Somalia," he said. Most of our leaders were trained in Al Qaeda camps. We get our tactics and guidelines from them. Many have spent time with Osama bin Laden." There are indications of a fairly close Shabaab-Al Qaeda connection, though it's not clear to what extent they've been operationalized," he said.

"Is Shabaab taking orders from Al Qaeda? I would say no. They are still running their own show."Robow said Shabaab has been boosting its forces in recent months with an influx of (Al-Qaeda) fighters from around the world, including Kenya, Sudan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Algeria, Indonesia, Chechnya and even the United States.

Al Jazeera recently aired footage of a masked Shabaab commander who called himself Abu Mansur al-Amriki and spoke with an American accent. His identity could not be confirmed.

Robow said Shabaab's roots lay with the collapse of Mohamed Siad Barre's military regime in 1991, the last time Somalia had a functioning government.

With help from a team of fighters sent by Bin Laden, he said, future

Shabaab leaders cut their teeth killing U.S. forces in 1993, including the downing of a U.S. Black Hawk helicopter, which led to the deaths of 18 U.S. soldiers.U.S. intelligence agencies took note after the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. Somalia's Islamic hard-liners (Al-Shabaab) were accused of harboring the Al Qaeda operatives who executed the attacks.
