12 'vetted' refugees that became jihadists

Senator Jeff Sessions has been a tireless warrior on immigration and national security. Most recently, he released a list of 12 refugees that became jihadists. In just 2015 alone. There are more from prior years, not to mention those we don’t know about who are laying low waiting for their moment to attack.

Oh, and did I mention, all of these Quran-inspired terrorists were vetted before they were admitted to the United States?

But as I often say, Muslims are vetted based on the ideology written in their holy book and carried in their hearts.  “Refugees” may not be members of a terror group, but there’s nothing to say they won’t turn to terror. As happens. Over and over again. And so we need to stop the stupidity about vetting because (1) the FBI has already stated that we can’t adequately vet the recent lot of “Syrian refugees,” and (2) all the vetting in the world won’t change the fact that Muslims are the people who follow the teachings of the Quran – a totalitarian ideology that mandates world domination. Do all Muslims follow these teachings? No. Do we know which ones do, to what degree, and/or who may become “radicalized” (otherwise known as devout) and act on those teachings? No.

But back to Sessions and the 12 vetted jihadists. Breitbart reports (summarized below):

Liban Haji Mohamed: Came to the U.S. as a refugee from Somalia, acquired residency status, and later became a citizen. Lived in Washington DC and worked as a cab driver. After being placed on the no-fly list, snuck across the border into Mexico. Believed to have left the U.S. on 7/5/12 with the intent to join Al-Shabaab in East Africa. Provided material support to terrorists. The FBI has stressed the importance of locating him because of his knowledge of the DC Metro area, which makes him a valuable asset to terrorists plotting attacks on U.S. soil.” Arrest Warrant

Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim:  Came to the U.S. as a refugee from Somalia at the age of 22 and achieved permanent residency status. Sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for conspiring to provide material support to a terror organization, for making false statements on his immigration paperwork, lying on his application for citizenship, and lying on his request for refugee status where he falsely claimed to be a member of a minority clan in Somalia that was subject to persecution. However, he was actually a member of the majority clan, was not subject to persecution, and was related to known Somali terrorists. Criminal Complaint Indictment

Abdullah Ramo Pazara:  Came to the U.S. as a refugee from Bosnia, became a legal resident and later a citizen. Eleven days after becoming a citizen, flew to Syria to fight with ISIS. Pazara was purportedly killed in Syria. He was a deputy to a top ISIS commander. Indictment

Ramiz Zijad Hodzic:  Came to the U.S. as a refugee from Bosnia as a purported war hero.

Sent funds to terrorists abroad and attempted to travel to Syria to join terrorists in Syria and Iraq. Was a truck driver and former mixed martial arts fighter. Had previously been charged in two separate incidents: (1) endangering the welfare of a child, and (2) assault after allegedly beating his girlfriend with a belt. Indictment

Possessed an unregistered destructive device with the intent of perpetrating a terror attack in America. Superseding Indictment Original Indictment (Idaho) Original Indictment (Utah)

I wonder if these are the kind of folks Obama relaxed restrictions on last year, making support for “soft terror” acceptable for those applying for refugee status. Or if it’s the United States generally doing a poor job of vetting refugees. Or, if as I repeatedly stress, this is what happens when you import Muslims, some of whom are, or will become, jihadists.

Which means some of us will die because we let them in.

This isn’t rocket science, folks. It’s the 21st century Nazism to the exponent of infinity. And the sooner we wake up to that fact, the greater our chance to save ourselves and our nation.

Help wake someone up today. And tomorrow. Don’t ever stop trying.
