ISIS & San Diego, CA: A Prime Jihadi Hub! DHS Lends Cover. Where Is The Nexus? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

San Diego Terrorism Case To Be Sent To Minnesota

OH boy, how many know that California is a mobbed up Brotherhood Mafia state, atop a list of other top dogs with said “distinction?” Now, while some view sunny California as a cross between Hollyweird’s loony leftism (which it is), coupled with an increased swelling of illegal aliens, what is often missed is the dangerous Islamic foothold throughout the state.

EVEN so, why does any of this matter, unless one lives in California? In a nutshell, the question should be the polar opposite: how doesn’t it matter?

SPECIFICALLY, San Diego is a front-line city in southern California near the border with Mexico. Assuredly, its location is highly germane to the ISIS factor, even though the city would still be a major jihadi player without their entry into the mix. Hang on tight.

BUT before we delve into the latest bombshells, some backgrounder is in order. It involves two seemingly separate areas of concern, however, they are inextricably linked. Wait and see.


LET’s start with CA in general via its network of jihad within the University of California system in toto, as well as housing the first Islamic college in the nation. The undercarriage and incubator.

AS reported on June 6, 2014 – and to get from there to here – first absorb the following:

Bayan Claremont educates men and women as Islamic religious leaders, scholars and educators, within a multi-religious, multi-ethnic, graduate institution through graduate-level degree programs and advanced studies within the field of Islamic education. These programs and studies are to be non-sectarian in nature and are open to students from other religious traditions as well. Bayan Claremont, founded by the Islamic Center of Southern California, currently operates as a division of the Claremont School of Theology. Bayan is part of an interreligious consortium involving several partner institutions.

Now that we are feeling so warm and fuzzy – steeped in the mental glowing warmth that America’s “multiculturalism” is operating so well – consider the fact that Bayan Claremont’s founder IS the mobbed up Brotherhood Islamic Center of So. Cal…where to begin…and not even 3 degrees separated from terror!

A supporter of the radical and violent form of Islam known as Wahhabism, Maher Hathout is a founder and director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), a Los Angeles-based Islamic advocacy group that defends Muslim extremist violence. MPAC has condemned the anti-terrorism measures of both the U.S. and Israel, and has called for a repeal of the Patriot Act. Hathout is also a spokesman for the Islamic Center of Southern California.continue reading

OH joy.

AS is said, location, location, location. Alas, the fact that CA was the first state to house said mobbed up Brotherhood college is hardly incidental.

IN this regard, one would be hard pressed to come up with a single public university – within the entire California system – which is devoid of Islamists running amok. Nevertheless, a particular example will have to suffice, as a main exhibit for countless others: Palestinian student leader at San Francisco State University threatened to kill Jews on social media, even wielding a knife in the process!

THE (rhetorical) questions become: did the admins at SFSU take action, or not? and what kind of campus atmosphere lends itself to such brazen criminal/terror activities?

AND since little happens in a vacuum, as such, conditions are “created” for this and that. Thus, it is not accidental that a university system which tolerates (colludes with) Islamic terror and incitement also ended up being an outgrowth of the first Islamic college. Cause and effect.

SIMILARLY, how surprising is it that California’s U system partook in an ISIS “club-fest” embrace, as did several other academic cesspools, Cornell U and Barry U? 

ENTER….California’s campus support for ISIS and ongoing links with Hamas!



WHEREAS the above sets the stage for California as a receptive repository, a prime conduit, for Islamic terror, a specific nexus underpins San Diego as a hub for ISIS. Not only that, its point of entry (alongside the Mexican border) for ISIS is directly due to the absolute malfeasance of DHS, under the wayward stewardship of Jeh Johnson. In the main, Somali terrorists are major beneficiaries.

ALAS, an ISIS hyper-alert was issued from these pages and it too was not for nothing.

TO wit, readers may recall the frightening overview of Somali terror nests within America, as detailed at this site. If not, please wake up: US jihadis hiding in plain sight; Somalis (Minnesota based) top the FBI Most Wanted List.


ALONG said trajectory, little is more demonstrative of Jeh Johnson’s fingerprints, other than the warnings blared from this direction. Oh well. 

BUT if you think that any of the above is exaggerated, good luck with that fairy tale.

DHS buses carry immigrants from the border to detention centers where they are processed, given a court date and released.


The U.S. is bringing in 100,000 Muslims every year through legal channels such as the United Nations refugee program and various visa programs, but new reports indicate a pipeline has been established through the southern border with the help of the federal agency whose job it is to protect the homeland.

They are coming from Somalia and other African nations, according to a Homeland Security official who was caught recently transporting a busload of Africans to a detention center near Victorville, California.

Somalia is the home base of al-Shabab, a designated foreign terrorist organization that slaughtered 147 Christians at a university in Kenya just last month. It executed another 67 at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, in 2013, and has put out warnings that it will target malls in Canada and the U.S. Dozens of Somali refugees in the U.S. have been arrested, charged and convicted of providing support to overseas terrorist organizations over the past few years.

Libya is also awash in Islamist terror following the death of Moammar Gadhafi in 2011. ISIS beheaded 21 Coptic Christians on a Libyan beach in February.

So when Anita Fuentes of posted a video of a U.S. Department of Homeland Security bus pulling into a Shell station in Victorville, on the night of May 7, admitting he had a busload of Somalis and other Africans who had crossed the southern border, it raised more than a few eyebrows among those concerned with illegal immigration and national security.

A man who appeared to be a Customs and Border Patrol agent was filmed at the gas station at 10:30 p.m. When questioned by Fuentes, he informed her that his large touring bus was full of Somalis and other Africans being transported to a nearby detention center.

The tour bus had the U.S. Homeland Security logo, and the agent appeared calm and professional.

The windows to the bus were covered. When asked if he was transporting illegal immigrants, the driver said, “No, we ended up taking some people to a detention facility. Somalis and all the Africans.”

Watch video clip of border officials admitting they are bringing in Somalis and other Africans from the southern border.

“A detention center over here?” Fuentes asks.

“Yeah,” he said.

Victorville is about 161 miles from the Mexican border.

“Is that because they’re crossing the border?” Fuentes asked.

“Well they’re coming in asking for asylum,” he said.

“That’s what it is, that special key word huh? That’s a password now?” Fuentes said.

“That’s what the password is now,” he responds.

The flow of information stopped when Fuentes asked about the presence of ISIS near the border, a story which the watchdog agency Judicial Watch reported last month.

“ISIS being at the border?” she asks.

“I’m not going to talk to you when you’re recording me, ma’am,” the agent says. “Any information you want ma’am, go ahead and look it up online… the whole thing

IT is with this additional DHS/Somali backdrop in mind that San Diego’s ISIS hub comes into sharp focus. Full circle.

On Sunday, two Somali men were arrested here and four others in Minneapolis in what federal officials billed as the Islamic State’s biggest recruitment plot yet. Abdirahman Yasin Daud and Mohamed Abdihamid Farah, both 21, are accused of traveling to San Diego to get fake passports, then cross into Mexico and travel to Syria from there, according to the complaint. Court proceedings are set for next week to return them to Minnesota for prosecution.

Last year, former City College student Douglas McAuthur McCain of Spring Valley joined the Islamic State and became the first American believed to have died in combat in the conflict in Syria. The 33-year-old had converted to Islam and his ideology became radicalized, his social media postings showed.

Another San Diegan, Jehad Mostafa, is on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list because he is believed to be working in Somalia for al-Shabab, another radical Islamic terrorist group.

The current star though is  Mohamad Saeed Kodaimati. Mo was naturalized along with his father back in 2001. And he repaid the country that took him in the popular way among so many younger Muslim settlers in the West.

Others images released by the Justice Department this week depict a heavily bearded Saeed brandishing powerful assault rifles, a faint smile on his lips.

In online chats and posts, Saeed allegedly bragged about working for a sharia court, openly expressed his support for ISIS and claimed he had fought in a gun battle that lasted four months, reported Los Angeles Times.

‘I am currently the media person for the Shari’ah Authority,’ Saeed is alleged to have boasted to a friend online.

In a September 2013 Facebook email to a friend, he wrote he was working for the Sharia Authority at Hanano, describing the official body as “a government in the liberated area — being set up upon the Islamic religion — and governed by the Quran,” according to the complaint.

MOST significantly, California is also home to more than a few terror camps/compounds, yes, you read that right! Indeed, this topic was duly explored at this site on a multiplicity of occasions.

SPECIFICALLY, Tulare County, in the central valley (as well as Fresno), is one such terror training area. Can you believe it?


INTRINSICALLY, since 1 + 1 still equals 2, isn’t it reasonable to conclude: the fact that DHS is complicit in ferrying ISIS aligned Somalis (and others from similar terror-laden countries and backgrounds) from Mexico into California (Texas and Arizona alike, but let’s not digress), with one of the dumping sites being San Diego, naturally, it became a jumping off point for whatever attacks are in the offing! Again, cause and effect.

CONSEQUENTLY, if any administration can be accused of, for all intents and purposes, handing over the nation’s keys to Islamic terror groups, it is Obama Inc. via DHS and assorted surrogates and accomplices.

RESULTANT, treason and high crimes and misdemeanors must be the beginning, not the end, of the (Constitutionally supportable) charge sheet!

{re-blogged at Joe For America}


BEFORE this commentary delves any further, let’s be inordinately clear: this blog has proven (too many times to enumerate) that the cesspool which passes for American academia, as well as its western counterparts, is beyond the pale


UC Berkeley Prof Hatem Bazian, a virulent & violent anti-semite, leading the graduation processional at (pro terror/anti-American) Zaytuna Islamic College of California

As such, it has been documented, time and again, aside from radical left indoctrination passing for academic scholarship, Islamists are deeply embedded into American (western) campuses. This is precisely why Shariah law “colleges” are an out-sized danger, as they become another spear in an arsenal to destroy America. But until we get to the heart of the matter, it is incumbent to recall their destructive and implanted force within America’s campuses.

Indeed, the following is a sampling of the inherent dangers emanating from a VERY entrenched Islamic presence on America’s (western) campuses, be they focused from Islamic-infused students or associated profs:

Sampling One:

As Boston’s jihad recedes into the public’s “distant” memory-hole (never mind 9/11/01 and its “band of student” jihadists, several of whom posed as students, yet never attended classes…hmm) we must never forget the parts played by jihadi college students in Beantown; yes, a mecca and microcosm for foreign terror, where Islamic-inspired students are at its epicenter!

Sampling Two:

And not to nitpick even further, but who can forget – not this American-Israeli – the blood curdling threats lobbed at Jewish students at SFSU , specifically, from a student jihadi. Said threats are hardly anomalies within America’s campuses.

Still, perhaps, additional reminders may be necessary to jog some memories – or not: “Palestinian student” exhorted to murder Jews and Israelis, not once but twice! School admins and law enforcement hardly batted an eye. Why??

In this regard, how secure should ALL Americans (westerners) feel, realizing that full-throttle jihadi incubators are ensconced as Islamic “colleges”? Shiver us all timbers.

Okey dokey, let’s segue over to Bayan Claremont, housed in – you guessed – Southern California’s Claremont area. How lovely. But aside from the sunny locale, there are some tidbits which must be revealed: yes, Americans should be afraid. Very afraid. And don’t get taken in by their multi-culti, inter-faith associations. They ain’t worth a damn, other than to disarm the public. Literally.  

As an expert on the Muslim Brotherhood and its quest for global domination – with America being its chief prize – there is little which flies past this investigative journalist. Hence, the warnings. It is what it is. Don’t blame the messenger!

So to get from there to here, firstly, absorb the following:

Bayan Claremont educates men and women as Islamic religious leaders, scholars and educators, within a multi-religious, multi-ethnic, graduate institution through graduate-level degree programs and advanced studies within the field of Islamic education. These programs and studies are to be non-sectarian in nature and are open to students from other religious traditions as well. Bayan Claremont, founded by the Islamic Center of Southern California, currently operates as a division of the Claremont School of Theology. Bayan is part of an interreligious consortium involving several partner institutions.

Now that we are feeling so warm and fuzzy – steeped in the (mental) glowing warmth that America’s “pluralism” is operating so well – consider the fact that Bayan Claremont’s founder IS the mobbed up Brotherhood Islamic Center of So. Cal…where to begin…oh joy…and not even 3 degrees separated from terror:

A supporter of the radical and violent form of Islam known as Wahhabism, Maher Hathout is a founder and director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), a Los Angeles-based Islamic advocacy group that defends Muslim extremist violence. MPAC has condemned the anti-terrorism measures of both the U.S. and Israel, and has called for a repeal of the Patriot Act. Hathout is also a spokesman for the Islamic Center of Southern California.

Hathout characterizes Palestinian suicide bombing attacks against Israelis as the very understandable “bitter result of the reckless policy of [Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon.” He has also supported attacks by the terrorist group Hezbollah, whose members he characterizes as “freedom fighters.” He has called Israel a land of “butchers” who have set up an oppressive system of “racist apartheid.” He condemned the 1998 strike ordered by President Bill Clinton against Sudan and Afghanistan in retaliation for the terrorist bombings of American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. In Hathout’s view, the U.S. response was “illegal, immoral, inhuman, unacceptable, stupid, and un-American.”

Maher Hathout co-founded the Islamic Center of Southern California with his brother, Hassan. The Islamic Center of Southern California is MPAC’s sister organization and publishes MPAC’s publication, The Minaret, which has identified Maher Hathout as “a close disciple of the late [Muslim Brotherhood founder] Hassan al-Banna of Egypt.” A March 1998 Minaret article titled, “In Appreciation of Dr. Hassan Hathout,” also details Hassan’s ties to al-Banna: “… Hassan Hathout was a companion of Hassan al-Banna…Hassan Hathout would speak of al-Banna with such love and adoration; he would speak of a relationship not guided by politics or law but by a basic sense of human decency.” In 1997, Hathout delivered an address at the State Department on emerging Islamic trends, in ehich he lauded Hassan Turabi, prominent Muslim Brotherhood member, as a reformer. Hasan al-Turabi was the head of the National Islamic Front, which the U.S. government has condemned for supporting terrorism, launching a genocidal war in southern Sudan, and for continued human rights violations. Turabi also gave Osama bin Laden sanctuary in Sudan. As part of his plan to turn the country into a global militant Islamist base, Hassan Turabi invited Bin Laden to Sudan in 1991. The two, bounded by a personal friendship and shared ideology, began a close financial and military cooperation that lasted until Bin Laden left Sudan in 1996.

Dear readers, the dots are more than clearly connected….but there is more. Enter: Zaytuna College!

Situated in radical lefty, jihadi-friendly Berkeley, CA, its co-founders are so steeped in jihadi links they are inseparable. Pigs to shit. Introducing,







and his profile is self explanatory – or it should be. But do ignore his jibber jabber, as he straddles both sides (indicated within the link). Yes, this is par for the course for taqiyya-laden tactics:

Two days before 9/11, Yusuf spoke at a fundraiser for Jamil al-Amin, then on trial for murdering a sheriff’s deputy in Fulton County, Ga. Al-Amin was framed, Yusuf argued, in order to “silence” him. Al-Amin “is a dangerous man. It’s a dangerous man who will speak the truth.”

Al-Amin was convicted of murder the following year. At the fundraiser though, Yusuf seemed to suggest that America’s “institutionalized racism” was linked with Brown’s plight. “We can’t buy the stale rhetoric of human rights because we have not seen the proof of it,” he said.

At the same fundraiser, he also said that Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, convicted in a conspiracy to bomb New York landmarks in the 1990s, was unjustly tried. Citing former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark, Yusuf claimed that the “Blind Sheikh’s” conviction went “against any standards of justice in any legal system on this earth, and now he sits in a jail because it was already a foregone conclusion.” Abdel-Rahman is serving a sentence of life plus 65 years for crimes that include conspiring to murder former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, and plotting to bomb the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels, the George Washington Bridge, the New York FBI headquarters, various military installations and the United Nations building.

After 9/11, however, Yusuf tempered much of his radical ideology. He often condemns terrorism. But he still sees the United States as an inherently hostile nation, one that “relishes war.”

Unlike Zaid Shakir, his colleague at Zaytuna College, Yusuf readily acknowledges that the 9/11 attacks were the work of Islamic extremists. Shakir says there are “glaring weaknesses and inconsistencies in the official narrative” about 9/11 and allows his writings to be republished by a website devoted to 9/11 conspiracy theories.

Within a week of the attacks, however, Yusuf told the San Jose Mercury News that it was shocking to him that there are “any Muslims – no matter how statistically insignificant their numbers – who consider these acts to be religious acts … And therefore we as Muslims have to ask the question, ‘How is it that our religious leadership has failed to reach these people with the true message of Islam?’ Because the acts of these criminals have indicted an entire religion in the hearts and minds of millions. These people are so bankrupt that all they have to offer is destruction.”

One of his partners at Zaytuna is Zaid Shakir, a Muslim convert, born Ricky Mitchell. What a fella, just another guy from the ‘hood. A real homie. Not so fast.

This is the true Shakir, an Islamist to his core.

Zaid Shakir

Shakir’s video appearance sets up a striking contrast in message. He says that “Islam teaches a balance in all of our affairs, so it’s not a religion that’s amenable to extremism.” Yet in a 1993 article entitled “Muslim Involvement in the American Political Process,” Shakir explained that Islam presents an “absolutist political agenda:”

“The relevant point for Muslims is that Islam presents an absolutist political agenda, or one which doesn’t lend itself to compromise, nor to coalition building. The Islamic world view presents the world as a place where there is a struggle between forces which are diametrically opposed to each other … Truth opposes falsehood. Allah’s true din challenges the false beliefs and systems innovated by man. The Qur’an gives no indication that a compromise is possible between these forces.”

In a December 2004 speech in Toronto, Shakir seemed to warn America that it must change or face God’s wrath:

“Allah doesn’t love oppressors. And less so here, but here it’s relevant, but more so in my country in the United States. We have a responsibility to warn those in power. And that’s Jihad. If you talk about jihad [Arabic] – the best jihad is a word of truth in the face of a tyrannical ruler. That if you don’t stop this oppression, if you don’t stop murdering people unnecessarily, if you don’t stop erasing cities like Fallujah off the face of the earth, if you don’t stop contaminating lands for the rest of possible life on this earth, with depleted uranium. This is a sinister, backdoor use of atomic weapons … And if these wrongs and many others aren’t corrected you don’t have to worry about al Qaeda … You have to worry about Allah.”

Despite evidence that a cell of Muslim radicals carried out the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, killing six people, Shakir argues that the accused conspirators were set up:

“Considering the available information, it is the view of some observers, that the WTC bombing was undertaken by Zionist forces to give proof to their allegations concerning the magnitude of ‘Islamic fundamentalist’ terrorism, and as a pretext to intensify their anti-Islamic propaganda campaign in the US media.

[ … ]

“The recent bombing of the World Trade Center (WTC), has produced anti-Islamic elements in this country and an opportunity to launch a vicious propaganda campaign against Islam and Muslims. This campaign has been so calculating that one immediately suspects it could not have arisen accidentally.”

This theory appeared in the June/July 1993 issue of Inquiry, a magazine published by Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) operative Sami Al-Arian. The magazine frequently featured reports about the PIJ and other radicals.

During a 2005 sermon, “Jihad: Just War or Unjust Violence,” Shakir argued that Hizballah’s 1983 truck bombing of U.S. Marine barracks in Lebanon as part of a peacekeeping force was not an act of terrorism:

“On the other hand, the bombing of Hizballah, Hizballah’s bombing of the marine barracks in 1984 (sic) is viewed as one of the greatest acts of terrorism directed against Americans, until Oklahoma City, in history. But if we step back, who was targeted? Civilians? No, military personnel in a military installation in a war zone. And it’s interesting to ask a question: If Hizballah owned a bomber, which they don’t, and flew overhead and bombed the barracks, would it be described as terrorism.”

Shakir invokes the Quran to criticize America’s secular political system. In an article about Muslim involvement in the political process, Shakir cited Quranic verses (Al-Qur’an 5:44 and 5:47) to the effect that, “Whoever Rules (Judges) by Other than What Allah has Revealed They are Nonbelievers…Oppressors… Transgressors,” specifically regarding Christians and Jews:

“As the Christians and Jews of this country have rejected the divine law and created their own secular system of rule, the legal and political system of America is sinful and constitutes open rebellion against Allah. For a Muslim to join with the Jews and Christians in this system is to join them in their rebellion against Allah. Allah explicitly orders against this.”

Oh my, we can’t leave out another key member of Zaytuna, a “Palestinian” Islamist who has been featured within these pages. He is a virulent and violent anti-Semite. He is a co-founder of Students for Justice in Palestine – a jihadi terror group – which is a fully ensconced student org! Again: 

Hatem Bazian—a senior lecturer in the department of Near Eastern studies, director of the Islamophobia Research & Documentation Project at the University of California, Berkeley, and aregular at Sabeel conferences and other “interfaith” events—led the workshop titled “American Muslims and the Palestinian struggle for liberation.” It focused on the alleged connection between “Islamophobia,” counterterrorism, and the pro-Israel movement.

We have a total of 4,300 cases; ninety percent are Palestinian [and] regarding ‘material support for terrorism.’ . . . Right now we are in the middle of planning another appeal on the Holy Land Foundation case, which already has cost us $5 million.

Alas, for some budding jihadists, sunny CA may be too freewheeling to suit their tastes. Don’t snicker. But have no fear, the Windy City is available too.

The American (just like apple pie) Islamic College can be found in Chicago. Go figure. How fortuitous. Indeed, Chicago is ripe for their picking. But don’t get distracted, this “college” is stacked with unsavory Islamists, to say the least. However, it is also cloaked in (better garbed) “inter-faith” cover. Ignore their promotional jive talking literature which is cited in the above link.

Despite this, that, and the other, many will attempt to fatuously suggest: why is it okay for Christians and Jews (and other religions) to have their own colleges, but Muslims are deemed suspect, that is, if they do the same?

Still yet, the real questions are verboten, and therein lies the national danger: when was the last time, even the first, that Christian and Jewish colleges taught jihad against America? When did they ever employ faculty members associated with KNOWN terror orgs, those which have sworn to destroy America? And, are Christian and Jewish doctrines, unlike Islam, underpinned by Shariah Law, Allah-bent on destroying America and the west?

School’s out – for now.
