Abdullah Rashid, a Georgia native who moved into a subsidized apartment community in Minnesota, tries to implement shariah law… .
Apparently, his landlord is not amused… .
“…residents of the Cedar-Riverside Plaza complex have raised concerns about him, and management with Sherman Associates said they are aware of the group and working closely with law enforcement.
On Wednesday, Minneapolis police said the Cedar-Riverside Towers’ management is in the process of evicting Rashid, and security at Cedar-Riverside Plaza is advising him he’s not allowed to patrol the neighborhood or they will cite him for trespassing.”
Apparently, he has recruited a gaggle of like-minded yutes to assist him with his patrols, and, offers legal advice too. Helpful, no?
Rashid, who initially said he was working with Minneapolis police, said he is continuing his effort to provide security and protect Muslims’ civil rights. He said he has enlisted a group of 10 men, ages 18 and 25, to help him patrol the area.
Meanwhile some in the community are confused about what Rashid is doing.
Salma Mohamed, a mother of four, met with him recently at Brian Coyle Community Center, seeking advice on a custody case. A friend had referred her to Rashid, unaware of his controversial activities. She was startled by his uniform, she said, and his talk about terrorism and the young Muslim men who were convicted of trying to join ISIS.
“I was expecting the guy was a lawyer,” Mohamed said. “He just brought up things that weren’t even on the discussion table.”

From The Truth About Guns:
Something to think about.
…at a press conference this morning on the Orlando Massacre, said
“…..we need to look at the issue of mass shootings in America. “
Hmm. Essentially blaming the shooting on, well, guns.
Ok. No. He also essentially said,
“…lets not rush to judgment.” That we “need more gun control.” That this attach “…had nothing to do with Islam.”
Can we just blame the tragedy on what it really was, a radicalized Muslim nut-job? Ok, how about just a homophobic nut-job. Make you feel better?
Also not really in any news:
A couple days ago it was said that:
Azerbaijan is preparing to use force to regain control of territory it lost to Armenians more than two decades ago after international efforts to find a peaceful solution failed to bring results, its defense minister said.
Armenians took over the predominantly ethnic-Armenian region and seven adjacent districts – the Nagorno-Karabakh region – from Azerbaijan after the Soviet breakup in 1991.
Deadly clashes resumed between Azeri and Armenian forces last month after several weeks of relative calm accompanied the first European Games held in the Azeri capital in June.
Azerbaijan maintains they have the right under international law to use force to take back Nagorno-Karabakh, pointing to United Nations Security Council resolutions calling for Armenian withdrawal. The Azeri army thus threatens to push Armenian forces out of what is internationally recognized as being part of Azerbaijan.
Azerbaijan is ~95% Muslim.
The predominant religion in Armenia is Christianity.
Muslims have long believed they must take back all that which may have been taken from them. This isn’t some UN mandate. Its a part of their ideology.
Regarding that ideology, Jordanian journalist Fouad Hussein, who spent time in prison with members of al-Qaida himself outlined the Islamic plan to establish dominance over the world:
An Islamic Caliphate in Seven Easy Steps:
a scenario, proof both of the terrorists’ blindness as well as their brutal single-mindedness. In seven phases the terror network hopes to establish an Islamic caliphate which the West will then be too weak to fight.
They’re already on step 6. And their intended target is not just Christianity “over there.” Its the United States.
This final stage is described as “definitive victory.” Hussein writes that in the terrorists’ eyes, because the rest of the world will be so beaten down by the “one-and-a-half billion Muslims,” the caliphate will undoubtedly succeed.
Where is the moderate muslim outcry against ISIS and their atrocity? Answer: There is none.
The 1st Amendment is important:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
But one graphic reminder of why the 2nd is more so:
Gun control advocates can wail and gnash their teeth about 2nd Amendment rights and gun violence in this Country. Our founders meant for the Constitution and its Bill of Rights to protect us from potentially dangerous central and state government.
But the world is a violent place, and a disarmed populace is vulnerable. And not only to its own government.
