A former Plano high school student was sentenced Monday to 20 years in state prison after pleading guilty to an ISIS-inspired plot to commit mass murder at a Collin County mall.

Matin Azizi-Yarand, 18, discussed his plans with an undercover FBI employee to "run and gun" with firearms blazing at the Stonebriar Centre Mall in Frisco and to kill civilians and police officers during the slaughter.

He was arrested in May 2018 and finally got his day in court, although I think 20 years is far too little.

Funny, when Jessie “I’m a D@MN LIAR” Smollett faked his own beating, the media did everything they could to note that Trump and the rhetoric of the Far-Right created this environment.

It wasn’t just two made-up-MAGA-hat-wearing-attackers, NO! It was the entire CONSERVATIVE side of America that “attacked” Smollett! It was the entire HOMOPHOBIA side of America that “attacked” Smollett! It was the entire RACIST side of America that “attacked” Smollett!

But in this incident, it was just a “lone wolf inspired by ISIS.” The media are such worthless douche bags!

Lone wolf? Not likely. Here's how they operate.

IN FLORIDA, TERRORISM HAS A BADGE AND A GUN
Islamist Deputy Sheriff Nezar Hamze has Sit-Down with Taliban Imam
Frontpagemagazine ^ | April 4, 2019 | Joe Kaufman / FR Posted by SJackson

After leaving his job at CAIR, Nezar Hamze has now settled into his new position as Executive Director of the South Florida Muslim Federation (SFMF), an umbrella organization for most if not all of the area’s Islamic extremist groups, including CAIR. Last month, SFMF held a meeting at a radical mosque with a number of SFMF affiliate imams, one of which was previously arrested and charged with conspiring to provide funding to the Pakistani Taliban. All of this should be unsettling for Floridians and Americans, but what is most alarming is the fact that Hamze also serves as a Deputy Sheriff in one of the most prominent law enforcement offices in the nation.

On March 23, 2019, SFMF’s Council of Imams held its second meeting at the Islamic Center of Greater Miami (ICGM), a.k.a. Muslim Communities Association of South Florida (MCA), a.k.a. Masjid Miami Gardens. According to SFMF, the meeting was called to discuss various community issues, such as mental health, marriage/divorce, parenting, “political anxiety,” senior issues, anti-Muslim bigotry, and religious outreach. Leading the meeting was SFMF Executive Director Nezar Hamze. The attendees of the meeting comprised of a number of imams representing mosques with strong links to terrorism.

The mosques included: the Islamic Center of Boca Raton (ICBR) that was founded by a Hamas website designer, Syed Khawer Ahmad, a former assistant of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) leader Sami al-Arian, Bassem Alhalabi, and an imam that was placed on the federal no-fly list, Ibrahim Dremali; Darul Uloom, where future al-Qaeda commander Adnan el-Shukrijumah was a prayer leader and “Dirty Bomber” Jose Padilla took classes; and Nur-ul-Islam, where a former member of the mosque’s Islamic Affairs Council and ex-Vice President of its children’s school, Raed Awad, was the Florida representative for the Hamas charity Holy Land Foundation (HLF).

One of the participants at the meeting was Izhar Khan, the imam of Masjid Jamaat Al-Mumineen (MJAM). In May 2011, Khan was arrested and spent the next 20 months in a federal detention center in Miami on charges of terrorism. According to the indictment against him, “Izhar is a Pakistani Taliban sympathizer who worked with [his father Hafiz] and others to collect and deliver money for the Pakistani Taliban… Izhar… provided and attempted to provide material support and resources… knowing and intending that they be used in preparation for and in carrying out… a conspiracy to murder, kidnap, and maim persons in a foreign country.”

The Miami Gardens mosque, where the Muslim Federation meeting took place and which is a member organization of SFMF, is no stranger to Izhar Khan. In December 2017, Khan was honored by ICGM at the mosque’s ‘A Light for Humanity’ celebration. Also in December 2017, ICGM imam Abdul Hamid Samra, who sat next to Khan during the SFMF meeting, invited Khan to join him in speaking at the Iglesia Rescate church in Hialeah. Furthermore, in April 2017, Khan participated in a youth basketball tournament at ICGM. ICGM has played host to other extremist events. Last December, the mosque hosted a lecture by Markazi Majlis-e-Shoora (Advisory Council) member of Jamaat-e-Islami’s (JI) India faction, Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Yusuf Islahi. JI’s militant wing, Hizbul Mujahideen (HM), owned the Pakistani compound where Osama bin Laden was living and eventually killed in. The event was sponsored by JI’s American affiliate, the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). ICGM has, as well, hosted a number of events for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR has both institutional and financial ties to Hamas. One of the CAIR events, last July, featured CAIR-Florida Executive Director Hassan Shibly. After the 2006 Lebanon War between Israel and Hezbollah, Shibly notoriously stated that Hezbollah was “basically a resistance movement” and “absolutely not a terrorist organization.”

In August 2014, Shibly tweeted that “Israel and its supporters are enemies of God.” And in April 2017, Shibly promoted a video on Facebook lauding convicted Palestinian terrorist Marwan Barghouti as a “hero.” ICGM has its own links to terror. The mosque is an affiliate of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). The mosque’s property, at 4305 NW 183rd St. in Miami Gardens, is owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). Both ISNA and NAIT, along with CAIR, were named co-conspirators by the US Justice Department for the Hamas financing trial against the leaders of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) charity. Looming over all of this is the fact that the individual leading the Muslim Federation meeting, Nezar Hamze, is a Deputy Sheriff at the Broward County Sheriff’s Office (BSO), one of the most prominent law enforcement offices in the US. When Hamze was hired to be a Deputy Sheriff, in August 2014, it was per a recommendation from then-Sheriff Scott Israel.

This past January, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had Sheriff Israel removed from the BSO and replaced him with former Coral Springs Police Sergeant Gregory Tony. Unfortunately, though, while Hamze’s friend Scott Israel left the BSO, Hamze has remained. And like with Sheriff Israel, Sheriff Tony has allowed Hamze to hold a second job – the job as a leader of an umbrella organization for radical Muslim groups and groups tied to terrorism. No doubt, this is a threat to South Florida and to all American citizens.

It is totally unacceptable for a Broward Deputy Sheriff to be a liaison for terror-related entities and law enforcement. How can the BSO uphold the law, when one of their own is collaborating with those who spit on it? This blatant conflict of interests, alone, is a reason for him to be dismissed. It is time to shut Hamze’s organization down and Hamze with it.

Mark Steyn recently described a disparity in perception: “All jihad is local, but all “Islamophobia” is global.”

There are non-Muslims who put their thumbs on the same side of the scales as the Muslim Brotherhood do but for reasons entirely unrelated to Islam or Sharia. One bunch that does this are the Woke and those like them which see life through the lens of some reputed imbalance of power between “the whites” or “European civilization” or even “Christians” (note: culturally influenced by Christianity is enough) which are assumed to have this mythic power and thus are the oppressors and put near everyone else that is assumed to not have this attribute and are therefore are the oppressed.

These nitwits on the Left imagine Muslims are among the oppressed, ignoring centuries worth of facts about Islam in the process.

Being a victim can give one an excuse in the eyes of such people if someone ever acts up. Thus we found, on the next day after 9/11, Ivy League nitwits who couldn’t bring themselves to describe what the terrorists had done as evil.

But on the other side of the coin anything that is done by anyone in a group that is reputed to have this mythic power is seen as validation of the whole proposition of that group as oppressors. The only escape for someone in such a group is to parrot correct thinking, and then they can pat themselves on the back that they aren’t the bad people.

So the same folks who can even go so far as to separate the Jihad from the Jihadi can have little difficulty using others to smear whole swaths of the population just because they have some tenuous and entirely involuntary association because of their race, ethnicity or their culture.

This last was recently seen with Jussie:. He walks because he’s a victim.

So my prediction: the whitewash will commence soon and apologist will mobilize to downplay his plans or try to understand his justifications. They’ll speak about entrapment andhis ruined life.

Terrorists who claim to be Muslims always are lone wolves or acting on their own. Terrorists who are not Muslims result in blaming an entire religion, group or region. Interesting how that happens.
