**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
This is yet another reason why I tell you not to shop at Muslim-owned businesses, especially those that are all cash businesses, like convenience stores and gas stations, and why we need to limit immigration of Middle-Eastern Muslims, who frequently end up behaving like Bassam Hamed.
If you shopped at Ferguson Market & Liquor in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson or one of four other convenience stores, you were most likely funding Palestinian terrorism:
Fourteen people have been indicted on charges of using convenience stores to trade in stolen goods and contraband cigarettes, sending the profits to groups in the Palestinian territories.
Five stores were raided Tuesday as part of an alleged racketeering organization and at least nine people were arrested, authorities said.
The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force was involved in the investigation, but officials would not say whether they think terrorism was involved.
They don’t need to say. I think it’s pretty obvious. The money was going to fund homicide bombings and other terrorist activities to blow up and murder innocent people on behalf of the jihad.
The indictment, announced by U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway, said that since 2000, the organization profited from bank and wire fraud, receipt of stolen property and sales of contraband cigarettes.
The organization, led by 33-year-old Bassam Hamed, operated convenience stores that were used to sell stolen goods, Hanaway said. He and two of his brothers were among the 14 people charged.
The indictment was issued last week and unsealed Tuesday. It said members of the “Hamed Organization” transferred money to “entities” in the Palestinian territories. Officials would not disclose those entities but said they were not individuals.
Hmmm . . . let me take a guess at the “entities”: HAMAS, Islamic Jihad, Fatah, Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade. I think it’s a safe bet it’s one of these or an offshoot of it.
Lawyer Rob Lutfiyya, who has represented some of those indicted in business matters, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch . . . the men came to the U.S. as teens and still have family in the Middle East.
By the way, the indictment lists the Hamed brothers with alias last names of “Lutfeyyah”, so they’re clearly related to their apologist lawyer.
Read the 40-page Indictment of 14 Palestinian Muslims ripping off America to finance Islamic terrorism.
Why are we letting “teens” like this into America? Until America changes its indiscriminate policy of allowing all aliens–legal or illegal–into the country, regardless of religion and political beliefs, we are headed for a disaster and will see more of this.
Remember, these are the Palestinian Muslims they caught. There are thousands of these cases of Muslim-owned gas stations and convenience stores across America, the owners of which engage in these activities without a second look from the FBI or other authorities.
**** UPDATE: As you’ll note, this store sells liquor to us infidels, even though Islam forbids the consumption (and actually profiting at all from) alcohol. They are hypocrites, as both reader/blogger BT in SA/Stilettos in the Sand noted in the comments section of this post and as reader Nina writes:
I read you every day and each day my heart breaks even more for our country.
About the Ferguson story, I thought Muslims weren’t supposed to drink, touch, serve, sell liquor. I guess it’s OK if it’s to fund their disgusting “entities”.
I pray you stay safe in your good works.
Well, you know how it often is with Islam’s faux-piety: Infidels, Do as we say, not as we do. Remember Mohammed Atta and company at “The Pink Pony”?
