Pittsburgh Jihadist Convicted

    “Self-radicalized” — means he read the Quran alone.

“Self-Radicalized American Incited Violent Jihad Online ”, July 16, 2013Those who have met Emerson Begolly in person might describe him as a shy young man. But online, the 24-year-old was the complete opposite—he forcefully incited jihadist violence against Americans and Jews. And when FBI agents attempted to talk to him in 2011, he reached for a loaded handgun in his pocket and then bit the agents who disarmed him.

Map of PennsylvaniaToday, a federal judge sentenced Begolly to eight years and six months in prison for soliciting others to engage in acts of terrorism within the United States and for using a firearm in relation to an assault on FBI agents. Begolly pled guilty in August 2011 after being indicted less than a month earlier.

“This is a guy who definitely had the potential to hurt people,” said Special Agent Blake McGuire, who led part of the investigation from our Pittsburgh office. “He was a disaffected U.S. citizen who was susceptible to the message of violent extremism, and he became self-radicalized on the Internet. That type of offender—the so-called lone wolf—is extremely dangerous,” McGuire added, “because they can be difficult to discover before they resort to violence.”

Begolly came to the FBI’s attention in 2010 when he began posting violent material on an Islamic extremist Internet forum. Using the pseudonym Abu Nancy, the Pennsylvania resident and occasional college student solicited fellow jihadists to use firearms and explosives against American police stations, post offices, Jewish schools and daycare centers, military facilities, train lines, and water plants. He further urged his audience to “write their legacy in blood” and promised a special place in the afterlife for violent action in the name of Allah.

Members of the Bureau’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces in Pittsburgh and in Northern Virginia worked on the case with U.S. attorneys in both jurisdictions. “We all shared the same concern,” McGuire said, “that something might trigger this young man to carry out his own personal jihad.”

Begolly was under surveillance during the summer of 2010 when he legally purchased an assault weapon. Several months later, he escalated his online postings by soliciting jihadists to violence by posting a manual on how to manufacture a bomb.

Shortly after the bomb-making post, agents obtained search warrants for the homes of Begolly’s parents, where he often stayed. While the searches were being conducted, two other agents approached Begolly at a fast food restaurant near Pittsburgh to speak with him. That’s when he reached for the loaded handgun in his pocket. As the agents subdued him, he bit their fingers, trying to free himself and reach for his gun. His actions were consistent with a previous online post in which he urged jihadists not to be taken alive by law enforcement and to always carry a loaded firearm.

“When you combine troubling rhetoric that escalates with weapons, it poses a tremendous threat to public safety,” McGuire said. “Fortunately, we headed off any potential danger before it happened.”

Cardinal says, Allah same God

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, made his first appearance at a mosque in New York City. The StatenIsland Advance reported:

  • “You love God, we love God and he is the same God,” the cardinal said of the Muslim and Roman Catholic faiths.
  • Cardinal Dolan stressed that Catholics and Muslims have a mutual love of the United States and of the religious freedom that this country affords.  Your love of marriage and family, your love of children and babies, your love of freedom — religious freedom particularly– your defense of life, your desire for harmony and unity and your care for others, your care for God’s creation and your care for those who are in need,” the cardinal said, were Islamic values also shared by Catholics and areas where there could be mutual cooperation.
  • Unlike the followers of Islam who mock the Holy Trinity, Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God and believe in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  Not so for the followers of Islam.   The Quran 004.171 states “O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not “Trinity” : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairs.”  Additionally, the Quran 5:17 states “In blasphemy indeed are those that say that Allah is Christ the son of Mary. Say: “Who then hath the least power against Allah, if His will were to destroy Christ the son of Mary, his mother, and all every – one that is on the earth? For to Allah belongeth the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all that is between. He createth what He pleaseth. For Allah hath power over all things.”

Islamic Plan to Destroy Freedom of Speech

Posted in Act for America, Act Pittsburgh, Commentary, Court Cases, Member's Posts, Sharia Law with tags , , , , , on March 14, 2013 by thehelperthatabidesforever

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation has a plan to destroy America’s freedom of speech.  The OIC is made up of 57 Islamic nations who are in cooperation with each other to manipulate the United Nations into imposing a speech gag upon the United States and the world in the form of UN Resolution 16/18.

To accomplish this end, several lies must be lifted to the level of truth in worldviews.  This summary is drawn from a presentation by Debra Weiss that was web-casted on 3-12-2013 in cooperation with Act for American.

  1. Criticism of Islam is a form of racism.
  2. Anyone who opposes Islam is Islamophobic
  3. Defamation is any negative statement about Islam
  4. Opposing Islam is the greatest threat to world peace.
  5. Sharia Law does not violate human rights.
  6. Islam is a victim of western prejudice.
  7. The burden of criminality rests on the person who speaks out, and not upon the person who reacts to what is spoken.  This is a consequence-based test, and not a content-based test of criminality.  Legal Courts of the United States have always used the content-based test for criminality in freedom of speech cases.
