EXCLUSIVE: The suspect in the Oct. 23 hatchet attack on two New York City cops had been searching online for jihadist propaganda and foreign terror organizations — as well as information on martyrdom and suicide bombings — in the weeks leading up to the assault, according to a city counterterrorism bureau intelligence assessment obtained by Fox News.
While initial reporting from unnamed sources suggested Zale Thompson may have been motivated by anti-government or black power sentiments, the four-page document provides new details that speak to Thompson’s self-radicalization. They show his online obsession with the “message” of terror groups like Al Qaeda and the Islamic State.
The intelligence assessment, further, said he “may have held a long-standing interest in violent jihad.”
via Walmart to sell halal meat option | The Miami Student. h/t Iron Burka
Upon the request of Muslim students at Miami University, Walmart recently made the decision to provide halal-certified meat at the Oxford location.
Store manager Elijah Woodard made a formal announcement on Oct. 21 that the store would be accomodating these requests.
“I appreciated the students bringing this interest to our attention,” Woodard said. “I am pleased to announce that we have set a halal meat section in the store.”
An entire section just for Muslims?
According to Woodard, the order for the halal meat was made immediately and would only take a few days for the first shipment to arrive.
According to visiting assistant professor Tareq Hasan Khan, there has never been a location in Oxford that sold this type of meat.
“For halal meat, we needed to drive from Oxford to Cincinnati, around 40 miles one way, almost every week,” Khan said. “This long drive is very tiresome and takes about two hours only to go to Cincinnati and return back.”
Who are the Muslims behind the sharia demands? The Muslim Brotherhood-founded Muslim Student Association.
Between Khan and members of the Muslim Student Association (MSA), efforts were made to convince Walmart to provide the Halal meat. Many students reached out directly to the management at Walmart. In addition, a petition was passed around on the Internet. The petition acquired nearly 50 signatures and was directed at all Oxford grocers including MOON co-op and Kroger. Thus far, Walmart is the only provider who has responded to the requests of the Muslim students.
Just 50 signatures? Do you think Walmart would jump so high and so fast for any other group of 50? Or did Walmart fear a backlash?
“It is already hard to live in the United States as a Muslim, sophomore Rami Abu-Attiyeh said. “I would like to see halal food offered to students making it more convenient for them to have more options when it comes to eating at Miami University.”
If they want to live under sharia, why did they come here? Because Muslims are here to change America. Don’t let them tell you differently. Watch their actions.
According to Khan, the number of Muslim students and staff who come to Oxford to attend Miami University increases every year. Many of these people also have families with children to provide for, which is hard to do when meat is so unavailable. For Muslim students living on campus, many have found it to be increasingly difficult to find halal options.
Senior Saara Khalid said that as a Muslim, it is hard to find halal options on campus, especially for those students who do not wish to be vegetarians.
In addition, students requested specific brands of halal meat to be provided in Oxford grocery stores.
“Since the Halal chicken and meat has to be certified, we strongly recommend the local stores to sell chicken products from Crescent Foods and beef products from Midamar,” Khan said.
Apparently Muslims don’t know that, like most things Islamic, there is nothing halal about Midamar – it’s a fraud.
And about that MSA group. Ohio State’s Muslim Student Association President is rotting in an Egyptian prison for his participation in the banned Muslim Brotherhood. And he’s just one of the MSA jihadi alumnus.
