Bikers Planning Highly Controversial Action At Terror-Linked Mosque

Armed bikers are planning a protest outside of a Phoenix mosque on Friday.

The event will take place at the Islamic Community Center, which was once the place of worship for the ISIS-inspired attackers of the Draw the Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Dallas in early May.

Elton Simpson attended the mosque over a 10 year period, but stopped going to services there a few months ago. His fellow jihadist, Nadir Soofi, went infrequently and stopped going altogether about a year ago.

The center’s president, Usama Shami, told local NBC affiliate 12 News: “We are not educating people to do violent acts, so why are we being held responsible in the minds of some people?” He recently received a death threat in the mail against himself and his family, which the FBI is investigating.

The organizers of the anti-Islam rally, Jon Ritzheimer and Flash Nelson, stated the center was chosen because of Simpson’s and Soofi’s former affiliation.

The Facebook invitation to Friday’s “Freedom of Speech Rally Round II” reads:

ROUND 2!!!!!!! This will be a PEACEFUL protest in front of the Islamic Community Center in Phoenix AZ. This is in response to the recent attack in Texas where 2 armed terrorist, with ties to ISIS, attempted Jihad. Everyone is encouraged to bring American Flags and any message that you would like to send to the known acquaintances of the 2 gunmen. This Islamic Community Center is a known place that the 2 terrorist frequented. People are also encouraged to utilize there [sic.] second amendment right at this event just incase [sic.] our first amendment comes under the much anticipated attack.

A ‘Draw Muhummad Cartoon’ contest is planned as part of the event, with the participants asked to display their artwork in front of the Islamic Center.

Ritzheimer told 12 News: “I don’t condone any threats being made to the mosque.” Nevertheless, he does have strong feelings about the Muslim faith. He posted a picture of himself on Facebook wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the words “F— Islam.”

When asked about the shirt, he said: “I’m a Marine. I am outspoken. And I’ve just had it.”

Ritzheimer believes the Quran at its core incites violence. “It’s not that some people are out perverting this religion. It’s these guys are following the book as it is written.”

Shami is encouraging members to ignore Ritzheimer and his supporters on Friday, saying that they were not looking for an “intellectual conversation.”

He said: “”Everybody has a right to be a bigot. Everybody has a right to be a racist. Everybody has a right to be an idiot.”

“They are looking to stir up a controversy, and we’re not going to be part of it,” Shami added.

Approximately 250 people have indicated they plan to attend the biker rally on Facebook.

Phoenix police and the FBI are aware of the rally. The police have not commented on the security measures that will be in place.

AZ Muslim Man Allegedly Rapes Woman Who Refused To Be His Arranged Marriage Wife

Phoenix Police charged a Muslim man with sexual assault and kidnapping after he allegedly tried to force his arranged marriage bride-to-be to have sex with him.

The families of Mohamed S. Abdullahi, 30, and the victim, a young woman believed to be approximately 18 years old, entered into “Nikah,” a formal Muslim marriage agreement. The union was against the wishes of the woman.

When she learned of it in December, she fled the state, but returned after two weeks in order to finish high school. After her graduation, the woman refused to go forward with the marriage.

On Monday, the woman’s parents took her to Abdullahi’s apartment in southeast Phoenix.

Trina Childs, a witness, said, “I saw some guys carrying a girl in, so I ran over to the front and they threw somebody and that girl in this house, and all of them just walked out.”

“She was crying, she was just screaming, and shaking her head. If I knew what was going on I would have called the cops, but I didn’t know at that time what was going on,” Childs added.

According to the police report, Abdullahi barred the door to his apartment with a mattress and punched the woman in the face, knocking her to ground. He then ripped off her clothes and raped her. The victim had bruises on her neck as well as a bite mark, and was bleeding.

Abdullahi was also injured in the right hand and in the genital area during the assault.

When the assault was over, the victim managed to get her tablet from her purse and contacted a friend to call the police. When the officers arrived, the victim fled from the apartment and hid behind them.

Abdullahi was booked on charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault, and sexual assault.

The two families involved immigrated from Somalia: both are under investigation. So far, the victim has been unwilling to cooperate with the police and does not want to press charges against Abdullahi or his family.

Criminal Uses Gun As A Club. Victim Uses His As A Gun.

According to recent KPHO reports, a fatal shooting in Phoenix, Ariz., this week stemmed from a confrontation between 22-year-old Darell D. Hitchins and three targeted individuals.

Police cite the victims’ statements, which indicate Hitchins approached the group, produced a firearm, and likely used it to strike one of the individuals in the head. The assaulted victim was able to react, however, by producing a handgun and firing at the suspect several times. Hitchens was shot at least once during the altercation, an injury that proved fatal.

The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene; and, according to authorities, the three victims have been cooperative during the investigation. As of the latest reports available, the shooter has not been charged. Police indicate the report will be reviewed upon its completion to determine whether charges are warranted; however, many citizens apparently believe the armed victim was justified in using deadly force.

A Bearing Arms article detailing the incident included dozens of reader responses, most of which expressed support for the victim.

“Hope no charges files [sic] against the man protecting himself!” wrote one reader.

At least one commenter thought a misdemeanor charge might be appropriate.

“Fine him for littering! He left a pile of trash on the ground after all,” the reader wrote.

Though there was plenty of disappointment expressed over the loss of a life, most concluded that Hitchins brought his fate on himself.

“Good,” wrote one individual, “one less thug.”

Another concluded that “justice is served” as a result of the victim’s quick reaction.

SHOCKING: Watch The Just-Released Police Dashcam Video That’s Sparked A Hero/Villain Debate

ADVISORY: THE VIDEO CONTAINS IMAGES AND LANGUAGE THAT MAY BE DISTURBING TO SOME VIEWERS.

Was it the work of a quick-thinking hero cop who may have prevented an armed suspect from shooting people, including himself? Or did the split-second decision by a patrol officer in Marana, Ariz., represent police brutality as he rammed his cruiser at high speed into Mario Valencia?

That’s the emotion-packed debate that’s been sparked as authorities have released startling dashcam footage from officer Michael Rapiejko’s patrol car.

According to a post on The Blaze: “Police say Valencia fled authorities after stealing a rifle from a local Walmart at approximately 9 a.m. in the morning, KOLD reported. The 36-year-old, suspected of being involved in three other crimes, threatened officers who approached him with suicide. In one instance, he fired a round from the gun into the air.”

Officials in Marana say that the man whom the officer rammed with his vehicle has been booked into jail after treatment at the hospital.

CNN reports that the suspect now faces a host of charges: “Valencia faces 15 charges, including three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of armed robbery and possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited possessor.”

Valencia’s lawyer claims that his client was the victim of excessive force by police: “‘Everything in the video seems to point towards an obvious excessive use of force. It is miraculous that my client isn’t dead,’ said attorney Michelle Cohen-Metzger.”

You can watch the dashcam footage from the police car that sped into Valencia by clicking on the video below. ADVISORY: THE VIDEO CONTAINS IMAGES AND LANGUAGE THAT MAY BE DISTURBING TO SOME VIEWERS.

Arizona Takes Huge Step To Shut Down Michelle’s School Nutrition Decrees

Twitter/@lizzytrumbley

The recently elected Arizona public instruction superintendent made addressing the strict mandates limiting food choice in schools – an initiative enthusiastically supported by Michelle Obama – a high priority just months into her term. Republican Diane Douglas recently released a statement indicating that public schools in the state will not be forced to abide by one particularly controversial aspect included in the set of nutritional guidelines.

“I have ordered effective immediately, that the [Arizona Department of Education] Health and Nutrition Services division grant exemptions for all fundraisers for both traditional public schools and charter public schools,” she announced.

While regulations also dictate what public schools are permitted to serve during meal times, restrictions placed on fundraising efforts have similarly been panned by school officials across the country.

As Western Journalism reported last summer, members of the Tennessee Board of Education sounded off on the impact these limitations would have on clubs and organizations within the school that rely on bake sales to fund student activities.

“If somebody wants to object to federal intrusion in what’s going on in schools,” advised Board Chairman Fielding Rolston, “I think this would be an ideal place to target their objections as opposed to some of the other things people are tending to complain about.”

Douglas continued her criticism of the restrictions in her statement, declaring that “Forcing parents and other supporters of schools to only offer federally approved food and snacks at fundraisers is a perfect example of the overreach of government and intrusion into local control.”

Should local school leaders be allowed to implement their own nutritional standards? Sound off in the comments section below.
