Tax-Subsidized Iraqi Immigrant Convicted of Rape in NY – 3rd Tax-Funded Iraqi Arab Convicted of Rape in Upstate NY
It’s time for yet another edition of “Your Day in Islamic Immigration to America.” And it’s yet another of the dividends of George W. Bush’s ill-advised war in Iraq, which handed the country from one sect of Muslims who hate us to another sect of Muslims who hate us. The only thing we got out of the Iraq war other than a lot of Americans dead or amputated and mutilated was a whole lot of Iraqi immigrants, many of ’em Muslim. Iraqi immigrants like convicted rapist Salam Al Haideri.
Haideri, 24, who came here as a “refugee” from Iraq and has been on tax-funded entitlements to date, was just convicted of a brutal rape of a 19 year old. He is the third tax-funded Arab refugee from Iraq convicted of rape in the Albany, New York area, since 2010. (I’ve told you about other such instances elsewhere involving Iraqi Muslim immigrants.) Alhamdillullah [praise allah].
A jury needed less than two hours on Thursday to convict an Iraqi refugee of brutally raping a 19-year-old woman behind a trash bin in Colonie after meeting her at a downtown bar last year. Salam Al Haideri, 24, of Niskayuna, faces 25 years in prison after the jury of nine men and three women found him guilty of predatory sex assault and first-degree rape. The panel began deliberating at 11:20. It reached its verdict at 1 p.m. — and that included time for lunch and a brief break to ask the judge a question. Acting Supreme Court Justice Roger McDonough set sentencing for May 16. Al Haideri is the third Middle East refugee — all brought to the Capital Region under the same federally funded resettlement program — to be convicted of a sex crime since 2010.
In closing arguments, Assistant District Attorney Chantelle Cleary played a surveillance video of the distraught 96-pound victim entering a Mobil Mart in Colonie, where she told the clerk, twice: “I just got raped” and said her attacker “smashed my face into the ground.”
Al Haideri and a friend had met the victim, whom neither man knew, at the Buddha Tea House club on North Pearl Street in the pre-dawn hours of June 2, 2013. The 4-foot-11 woman got in their car and, during the ride, Al Haideri touched her. She said she wanted to go home and she and Al Haideri argued. When Al Haideri’s friend stopped the car, Al Haideri yanked the woman out of the car and took her behind a trash bin behind “I Love NY” pizzeria on Central Avenue by Vly Road, Cleary said. Al Haideri smashed the victim’s face into the pavement, ripped open her shorts and raped her for 12 minutes as she begged him to stop, Cleary said. . . .
The conviction follows the sex crime convictions of Walid Nehma, 30, an Iraqi refugee who once was a housemate of Al Haideri, and Salah Mhawesh, 34, an Egyptian refugee. All three settled in the Capital Region with help of a program run by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Albany under a contract with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services.
In December 2009, Nehma struck a woman in the face, forced her to the ground, tore her pants open and tried to rape her as she screamed for help in a desolate area next to Capital Repertory Theater. He is serving a 5-year sentence at Great Meadow Correctional Facility in Washington County for attempted rape and is due to be released on Dec. 3. Mhawesh pleaded guilty in 2012 to first-degree sex abuse of a woman in his home on Central Avenue. He was sentenced to one year in the Albany County jail, which became time served.
When Al Haideri testified Wednesday, Cleary also questioned him about the assistance he received in jailhouse conversations with Jacqueline Foster, 73, of Niskayuna, his foster mother in the refugee resettlement program. Al Haideri lived with Foster, who had also allowed Nehma to live with her family for a time.
It is possible that Al Haideri is a Christian Arab (though that’s not indicated by the Catholic Church’s involvement, as the Church settles all kinds, including Muslims), but it makes no difference whether he is Christian or Muslim. We are being swarmed by those who have the dominant rape culture values of the Muslim Arab Middle East imprinted in their psyche, and they are now imposing it on our culture.
Yay, America. We fight Arab Muslims in the Mid-East allegedly in the name of democracy and against backward values. Then we import Arab and Muslim rapists and their backward values from the Middle East’s killing fields and bring ’em to stay with dear old granny. What the hell is wrong with us?!
G-d save this idiotic country.
