Connecting dots between two of the two biggest terror attacks on U.S. soil, by Andrew C. McCarthy June 14, 2016 12:14 PM. According to Fox News, Omar Mateen, the jihadist who carried out the mass-murder attack at a gay nightclub in Florida this weekend, was a student of Marcus Robertson, an Orlando-based radical Muslim who once served as a bodyguard to Omar Abdel Rahman — the notorious “Blind Sheikh” whom I prosecuted for terrorism crimes in the early to mid 1990s. Robertson, a former U.S. marine with a serious criminal record, is now 47. That means he was in his early twenties when the Blind Sheikh lived in the New York metropolitan area. It was a commonplace in those days for the Sheikh to travel with an entourage, including bodyguards from various groups (e.g., his fellow native Egyptians, Palestinians associated with Hamas, Sudanese Muslims who lived in New Jersey, and — often in Brooklyn, where he frequented the Farooq and Taqua mosques — African-American Muslims, most of them converts to Islam).
From abu taubah aka Marcus Robertson “I have not been arrested or questioned by law enforcement. Nor has anyone in our school been arrested or questioned. We are not in anyway connected to the shooting in Orlando, FL. May Allaah make it easier on the believers.” In an interview that aired on the June 14th 2016 Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “On the Record,” fundamentalist Muslim Imam Abu Taubah aka Marcus Robertson denied reports that Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen attended his online seminary while refusing to condemn the stoning of women for adultery and saying that some journalists should be beheaded. However, later in the segment, Taubah backpedaled on that remark. Taubah flatly denied that Mateen was a student of his or of his school, saying that the online seminary doesn’t have the face to face classes. He denied ever having met Mateen.

Marcus Dewayne Robertson is alleged to have instructed one of his Orlando students, Jonathan Paul Jimenez, to file false tax returns for the purpose of obtaining funds that would pay for travel to Mauritania for jihadist training. Perhaps I should say additional jihadist training. Prosecutors, Fox reports, produced intercepted conversations showing that Robertson had trained Jimenez “in killing, suicide bombing, and identifying and murdering United States military personnel.”
Omar Mateen, the terrorist who killed 49 people and wounded over 50 others at a gay nightclub in Orlando over the weekend, had enrolled in Robertson’s seminary. At least one other student of Robertson’s has been convicted (along with Robertson) in a case that had terrorism implications. Robertson’s lectures are said to include a staple of sharia: the condemnation of homosexuals — whom Robertson refers to as “devil worshipers.” Read more at: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/436590/omar-mateen-orlando-shooting-marcus-robertson-blind-sheikh-sharia
FOX NEWS: Bill Warner, a private investigator in Sarasota, Fla., and anti-Mulsim extremist activist, has been tracking Marcus Robertson since 2009. He claims that in addition to the most recent crimes, Robertson has “links to Al Qaeda going back to at least 1993 in New York City” and also previously was associated with Omar Abdel Rahman, the so-called “Blind Sheik” whose Muslim extremist group is blamed for the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993. Rahman, convicted of seditious conspiracy with nine others, is serving a life sentence at the Butner Federal Correctional Institution in North Carolina.
