Nine Americans injured in Brussels terrorist attack

Published

From Daily Mail

At least nine Americans, including three Mormon missionaries, a US Air Force officer and five members of his family, have been injured in the Brussels terrorist attacks.

They were among the near 200 people hurt in the suicide bomb blasts in Belgium’s capital that have left at least 34 dead.

The State Department is still trying to confirm whether any other citizens were caught up in the blasts, and expect the number of American casualties to increase.

They have advised any U.S. citizens in Belgium to ‘shelter in place’ and avoid any public transport.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said Richard Norby, 66, Joseph Empey, 20, of and Mason Wells, 19, all from Utah, were seriously injured in the explosion at Brussels Airport, where 14 were killed.

The trio had been accompanying a fourth missionary to the terminal building as she prepared to fly back to the United States for an assignment in Ohio.

The US military later confirmed a member of the armed forces and his family were injured in the jihadi-backed attacks. Military officials would not reveal where he was at the time because of privacy concerns.

Fifty students from the University of Illinois were in the capital at the time of the attacks, but officials confirmed they were safe.

Four students from Quinnipiac University in Connecticut were also in Brussels at the time of the attacks.

According to the university three were at the airport, but they are all believed to be safe and accounted for.

Sister Fanny Rachel Clain, 20, who was travelling with the three hurt missionaries, had already passed through airport security when the explosions hit, the church said in a statement.

She was also hurt and is now in hospital receiving treatment.

Sebastien Bellin, a Brazilian-born basketball player who used to play for Oakland University, was in the airport when one of the bombs went off.

During an interview on Fox News, Ted Cruz said his prayers were with everyone involved in the bombings, but mentioned the missionaries as voters in Utah prepared to vote in their primaries.

The governor of Utah, Gary Herbert praised the three Mormons.

Herbert praised the Utah natives as ‘people of faith who have forsaken everything — family, friends, school and careers — in order to share a message of hope and love with the world.’

Thousands of Utah Mormons have served proselytizing missions around the world. Mormons account for as many as two-thirds of the state’s population.

Belgium Mission President Frederic J. Babin confirmed the three of the missionaries were in the proximity of the explosion when it occurred and have been hospitalized.

The First Presidency of the Church promptly issued a statement this morning in response to the bombings: ‘With much of the world, we awoke this morning to the heartbreaking news of the bombings in Belgium.

‘Our prayers are with the families of the deceased and injured, including three of our missionaries who were injured and hospitalized.

‘We also pray for the people of Belgium and France as they continue to deal with the uncertainty and devastation caused by the recent terrorist attacks.’

Elder Norby is a veteran of the church, having served in the Ivory Coast and as the head of the Orem Utah College 1st Stake.

Elder Wells, a talented high school athlete, moved to Brussels on February 17 when he became companions with Elder Empey.

‘He’s a good hard worker so I’m excited for that, it’ll be good,’ Wells wrote when he learned he was going to be working with Empey.

Wells has been keeping a blog with updates of his activities with the church.

He posted an entry on Monday with his report on what he had been doing in the past week. They had both been working on a mission project with other youngsters in Paris.

Elder Empey’s mother updated friends and supporters on Facebook to assure them that their son has been in contact with them. They revealed he has shrapnel in his ankle and suffered burns.

She wrote on Facebook: ‘Our hearts are broken for all those that lost their lives in the terror attack in Brussels today.

‘We are grateful that Elder Empey and his companion Elder Wells are okay. A Senior missionary and sister missionary were also with them.

‘They were all injured but getting treatment and doing well. Dres will need surgery on a leg wound and does have some shrapnel in his ankles and knee.

‘He has some 2nd degree burns to his hands and head. He has been in contact with us. We would all like to thank you for your love and prayers. Love the Empey Family.’

President Obama spent under a minute in today’s speech in Cuba addressing the terrorist attacks that happened this morning in Brussels.

Obama said the ‘thoughts and the prayers of the American people’ are with the people of Belgium’ today following the Brussels terrorist attacks that killed at least two dozen people today from Havana.

‘We stand in solidarity with them in condemning these outrageous attacks against innocent people,’ Obama said. ‘We will do whatever is necessary to support our friend and ally Belgium in bringing to justice whoever is responsible and this is yet another reminder that the world must unite.’

‘We must be together – regardless of nationality, or race, or faith – in fighting against the scourge of terrorism,’ the president added. ‘We can and we will defeat those who threaten the safety and security of people all around the world.

Donald Trump also commented on the suicide bombings.

‘Do you all remember how beautiful and safe a place Brussels was. Not anymore, it is from a different world! U.S. must be vigilant and smart!’ wrote the Republican front-runner on Twitter.

Trump then said in an interview on Fox News the US needs to ‘shut the borders,’ a statement he repeated later in the morning while appearing on Today.

In that appearance he also told Matt Lauer he is a firm believer in using torture to get information from people behind attacks like the one in Brussels, stating; ‘Waterboarding is fine.’

Police across America have ramped up security at airports, tourist landmarks and mass transit points in the wake of the attacks.

Amid fears the bombings are the actions of coordinated jihadis, Homeland Security have said they are closely monitoring events as police departments and transit authorities step up their anti-terror patrols.

Forces including the NYPD, DC police and Chicago PD have moved to increase their presence at key locations while others have urged residents to be more vigilant and report anything suspicious.

Amtrak also confirmed more officers would be visible at their train stations around the nation.

The Port Authority announced early on Tuesday morning they would be stepping up precautions at New York and New Jersey’s three major airports – La Guardia, JFK and Newark – and will deploy heavy-weapon officers throughout terminal buildings.

Anti-terrorist units will also be stationed at the World Trade Center and Grand Central Terminal – America’s busiest train station.

Witnesses in Belgium described seeing ‘dismembered bodies everywhere’ after the blasts hit the American Airlines check-in desk at around 8am (7am GMT).

There were reports that shouts in Arabic were heard before the explosions and shots fired in the aftermath.

Around 90 minutes later, 10 people were killed when an explosion hit a Metro station near the EU headquarters in the city center in another suspected terror attack.

American Airlines confirmed that its planned flight from Brussels to Philadelphia in the US, which had been scheduled to depart at 9.40am had been cancelled in the wake of the blasts.

A spokesman said: ‘We are aware of an incident at the Brussels airport departure hall and are taking care of our customers, employees and contractors. At this time, all of our employees and contractors are accounted for with no reported injuries.

‘American Airlines flight 751 has been cancelled for today. When operations at the airport resume, we will re-accommodate our customers.’

Trump Sent Feds In To Raid NY’s Islamberg After 2 DECADES – Uncover America’s WORST Nightmare

Published

on

NOTE ***This story has been updated since its original publication as more details became available.

There’s a mysterious hidden Muslim compound called Islamberg that’s nestled deep within the woods of the Catskill mountains in New York. The only way to access the 70-acre compound is through primitive dirt roads, where more than 100 Muslims live in seclusion away from the prying eyes of curious Americans. For over two decades, infidels have been prohibited from entering, as anyone attempting to enter will be “greeted” by armed Muslims patrolling a guard shack at the compound’s entry gate. Without access to the compound, there’s been no way to confirm rumors about the location being used as a training ground for Muslim terrorists. But after an alarming incident involving one of the Islamberg residents, police got involved. And what they discovered that these Muslims have been quietly plotting for years is nothing short of chilling.

For over two decades, this cult-like group of Sharia Law-following Muslims have lived quietly under the guidance of Pakistani Sheikh Syed Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, a radical Muslim with known ties to Jamaat al-Fuqra, a terror organization responsible for a long list of terrorist activities around the world, including murders of rival religious figures in the United States. Locals in the area have often times reported the sounds of gunfire and explosions emanating from the compound, but because the Muslims weren’t necessarily breaking any laws, there was nothing that law enforcement could do except keep a close eye on the place from a distance.

But with a recent arrest of Islamberg resident Ramadan Abdullah who was recently caught trying to steal several cases of ammunition from a local mountain store in the area, authorities finally had their chance to investigate the man’s background. And they quickly learned that Abdullah was stockpiling weapons for the compound:

“A long-time associate of a U.S.-based Islamist terrorist organization, Muslims of America (MOA), has been arrested in New York following the discovery of a large cache of weapons that were intended for MOA’s “Islamberg” headquarters in Hancock, NY,” Dennis Michael Lynch reported.

Shortly after arresting Ramadan Abdullah for theft, the Muslim’s answers about why he was stealing ammunition raised suspicion among police, who then decided to obtain a search warrant to investigate their suspicions further. During their raid they discovered a massive stockpile of illegal weapons that were to be transported to the compound, including 8 assault weapons, 4 loaded handguns, 1 loaded shotgun, 2 rifles, 64 high-capacity ammunition feeding devices, and body armor, including thousands of rounds of .50 caliber ammunition capable of piercing body armor. But illegal cache of weapons seized from Abdullah was unfortunately just the beginning.

Illegal weapons seized from Islamberg compound

After Abdullah’s arrest, authorities began looking closer into his background, discovering that the Muslim is a long-time associate of the U.S.-based Islamist terrorist organization, Muslims of America (MOA), and was the very same Muslim who was arrested back in 1977 after police discovered enough material at his home to build 50 bombs.

Abdullah also participated in the armed robbery of a candy store in Brooklyn back in the 70’s that resulted in the death of a man. But after serving time and having his sentence drastically reduced, Abdullah had pretty much fallen off the radar of authorities, quietly living on the Islamberg compound and training other terrorists on the use of weapons. His arrest has now validated the fears that New York residents held all along that the compound was in fact location being used to actively train terrorists, where FOX News is now coming forward with other possible rumors of there being a tank on the grounds as well, and that the location was once used to hide Osama bin Laden from authorities.

Since Abdullah’s arrest, New York State Police Major Jim Barnes said he believes that the Muslim terrorist has traveled overseas to promote terrorism. All Abdullah’s illegal weapons have since been seized, and Barnes questions exactly what Abdullah’s motives were for hording such a massive amount of weapons in the first place.

“… it begs the question, what was he doing with all this and what were his intentions down the road?” Barnes said.

Thankfully, Abdullah is being held without bail at the Broome County Jail.

On several occasions, political pundit Dennis Michael Lynch has reported on the alarming things going on in Islamberg, exposing how 22 other training camps within the United States are directly associated with the MOA terror network and Ramadan Abdullah. Below is a chilling mini-documentary he did on Islamberg. Watch for yourself and ask: just what exactly is in that U-Haul truck?

It’s absolutely ridiculous that Muslims in this country are allowed to have their own freaking jihadi compounds, where they’re actively training their residents on the necessary tactics to carry out terror attacks! While Americans are protected under the Constitution against illegal searches and seizures, when known freaking terrorists are leading these compounds, it’s time to stop letting these Muslims hide behind our laws and put them all in GITMO where they belong!

103,000 Entitled Muslims In Michigan Just Woke Up To Nasty Surprise From Pissed Off Citizens

Published

on

Michigan has become a hotbed of hate as Muslims have been allowed to take over much of the state and impose their “religious rights” on everyone who was there before them. After years of this infiltration, fueled in large part by Barack Obama’s refugee program and the town of Dearborn becoming the Middle East of Michigan, citizens have had enough. The entitled ride of thinking they can take over has just come to an abrupt end with the rude awakening they just faced by one brave individual leading the charge of making the state American again.

The nature of the Islamic religion does not allow Muslims to assimilate into Western culture — they want to dominate it since everything America stands for is counter to their beliefs. Michigan has systematically been forced to bow down to Islam under the pressure of our previous president who herded thousands of refugees into their state and allowed one town, in particular, to become unrecognizable as an American city — Dearborn — which looks more like the Middle East with its predominately Muslim population of approximately 103,000, according to WXYZ.

Muslims’ plan is world domination as that’s what their holy book preached for them to achieve. Key to that plan is the implementation of Sharia Law which they try to slowly establish under the radar here in America, without anyone realizing it before it’s too late. Wise to their disguise is Michigan Representative Michele Hoitenga who isn’t taking a backseat to political correctness and just got proactive about stopping Muslims in their tracks with a nasty surprise she just slapped them with.

With a new president in charge, states are starting to feel empowered to take assertive action against Islam in America, as was seen this week by what Hoitenga who just proposed a bill to ban Sharia Law.

Michigan Representative Michele Hoitenga

MLive reports:

“Michigan residents would be banned from using other countries’ laws in court under a bill proposed by Rep. Michele Hoitenga, R-Manton, according to an email obtained by MLive.

In an email sent to state lawmakers seeking co-sponsors on Monday, Hoitenga said her bill doesn’t specifically mention Sharia Law, but wrote that it would include the religious law association with Islam.

“If you have not heard by now, a doctor in Detroit is being charged with operating an underground clinic that actively engaged in genital mutilation on young girls, essentially practicing a fundamentalist version of Sharia Law,” Hoitenga wrote in the email.”

Hoitega’s timing couldn’t have been more important as she saw first-hand the horrific results of Islam and Sharia Law in her own state last week when a female doctor was arrested for what she had been doing to Michigan girls who were not Muslim. Federal prosecutors accused 44-year-old Muslim Dr. Jumana Nagarwala of performing female genital mutilation on unsuspecting little girls in her Detroit-area E.R.

As expected, Hoitega faces an uphill battle with this bill in getting it past state Democrats who must not see a problem in disturbing crimes like Dr. Nagarwala’s who was forcing the sickest part of her religion on little girls. Hoitega wants to prevent more of this from being acceptable by law, which shouldn’t be up for debate since it’s completely contradictory to the U.S. Constitution, which liberals love to ignore.

Had this been a measure to prevent any other religion from gaining dominance over people, Democrats would be demanding that it pass and wreaking havoc on city streets if they were denied.

First Muslim Governor About To Take Over This State – Here’s The Terrifying Changes He Plans To Make Immediately

Published

on

Muslims understand fully that to take over America, they must first infest every facet of our society to include our schools, our law enforcement agencies, and the highest levels of government. Barack Obama was integral to their plan, as he worked incessantly to further the goal of Islam around the world and throughout America. Now that Obama is out of office, the Muslim Brotherhood have now found their next pet project in the form of another charismatic young Muslim by the name of Dr. Abdul el-Sayed. And what this young man has planned for our country as he sets to be elected as the first Muslim governor in America is absolutely chilling.

Abdul el-Sayed with his wife as they appear to blend in with western civilization

Meet Dr. Abdul el-Sayed. A 32-year-old Muslim medical doctor who has recently thrown his hat in the race for governor of Michigan. Just like Obama, he speaks without an accent and is charismatic; attributes that divert everyone’s attention away from the fact that he’s a Muslim with the full backing of the Muslim Brotherhood terror organization. If you think this sounds like Obama 2.0 you’d be 100% correct. He too hates Trump with a passion, saying that the president’s decisions “are at odds with deeply held American values.”

With Michigan already transforming into a Muslim cesspool in recent years, Sayed’s win as the governor would put the finishing touches on the state whose citizens are already being threatened by the complete takeover of Sharia Law. Dick Manasseri, who heads a group called Secure Michigan, made a chilling prediction about what’s in store for Michigan should Sayed win, a state he labels a “Sharia swamp.”

“It is the exact same thing as Barack Obama in Chicago in the early 2000s,” said Manasseri,” Dr. Manasseri stated. “He’s young, attractive, he does not give out a lot of information, he speaks in platitudes about celebrating inclusiveness and diversity.”

“He’s very well packaged,” Manasseri said. “He’s far more accomplished than Barack Obama. Obama was not this accomplished, they connected him to certain foundations and his candidacy took off.”

What’s chilling is that ever since Trump got into office, Democrats have been rallying around their little Obama 2.0, with top Democrats like Elizabeth Warren tirelessly campaigning for Sayed.

“Elizabeth Warren will be coming to campaign for him, the Democrats in other states will be raising money for him. The DNC number-two man [Keith Ellison] will be raising money for him. Of course this guy is going to be on the Sunday morning talk shows. He’ll be everywhere. A candidate for governor who is Muslim Brotherhood …if that doesn’t tell you there’s a Shariah swamp in Michigan I don’t know what does.”

This would be a massive victory for the Muslim Brotherhood who are rapidly getting their talons into every facet of American society. In a recent raid conducted at a Muslim’s house in Annandale, Virginia, federal agents discovered a dusty bundle of documents in the basement outlining the Muslim Brotherhoods’ secret 5-phase plan for taking down America. This was a closely-guarded secret until the FBI got their hands on this blueprint for taking down our country, authored by Muslim Brotherhood ringleader Yusuf al-Qaradwai.

Yusuf al-Qaradawi (L), Shaker Elsayed (C), and Bassam Estwani (R)

If you aren’t familiar with the documents, they are nothing short of chilling. Twenty-seven years ago, Muslim Brotherhood leader Yusuf al-Qaradwai traveled to America to organize Muslims across America, educating them with his diabolical plan for the compete Muslim takeover of America that would take 30 years to complete. It included a key tactic known as “Muruna,” where Muslims are able to violate Sharia Law in order to convince Americans that they are just like us. Just like an Ebola virus, Muruna is extremely effective, as Muslims are now able to seamlessly integrate into every facet of our society, as they make their way into our public school systems,  our federal and law enforcement agencies, and key positions within our government.

Muruna is the tactic that both Barack Hussein Obama used to convince America he was just like us, and now the Muslim Brotherhood is employing the same tactic as they groom Abdul el-Sayed to take over as governor in Michigan. Sayed’s win in Michigan will be one more nail in America’s coffin, as we all know the Muslim Brotherhood’s true intentions for our country, which is a land completely ruled by Sharia Law. Below is the terror organization’s 5-phase plan for taking down America, where chillingly, they are now in the final phase of their plan. Via Shariathreat.org:

• Expanding the Muslim presence by birth rate, immigration, and refusal to assimilate;

• Occupying and expanding domination of physical spaces;

• Ensuring the “Muslim Community” knows and follows MB doctrine;

• Controlling the language we use in describing the enemy;

• Ensuring we do not study their doctrine (shariah);

• Co-opting key leadership;

• Forcing compliance with shariah at local levels;

• Fighting all counterterrorism efforts;

• Subverting religious organizations;

• Employing lawfare – the offensive use of lawsuits and threats of lawsuits;

• Claiming victimization / demanding accommodations;

• Condemning “slander” against Islam;

• Subverting the U.S. education system, in particular, infiltrating and dominating U.S. Middle East studies programs;

• Demanding the right to practice shariah in segregated Muslim enclaves;

• Demanding recognition of shariah in non-Muslim spheres;

• Confronting and denouncing Western society, laws, and traditions; and

• Demanding that shariah replace Western law. Note that many of the foregoing techniques entail, in one way or another, influencing and neutralizing the American government at all levels.

It’s extremely important that we sound the alarm bells about what’s happening right underneath our noses. We have a massive fight on the horizon as these degenerates continue to implant themselves into every facet of our society, as rabid liberals work hand-in-hand to do everything in their power to get Muslim terrorists into power.

Share this story to help expose what’s going on and to help save our country! Muslims are rapidly taking over!
