A man arrested after 11 malnourished children were found in a remote desert compound was training them to commit school shootings, US media report.
According to prosecutors’ documents, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was teaching some of the children, who are aged one to 15, how to use weapons. …
Three women, believed to be the children’s mothers, were also “arrested without incident” and booked into the Taos Adult Detention Center, according to the sheriff’s office. Police have not explained what connection the women – named as Jany Leveille and Subhannah Wahhaj, both 35, and 38-year-old Hujrah Wahhaj – have to each other.
The officers who discovered the children said they looked “like Third World country refugees not only with no food or fresh water, but with no shoes, personal hygiene and basically dirty rags for clothing”.
Authorities had raided the site after receiving a message from someone that read: “We are starving and need food and water.”
This is from the BBC, so they waited to the end to mention the connections to the religion of peace:
Police said they had been aware of the compound for some time but had to wait for a search warrant before entering, as the occupants were “most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of the Muslim belief“. …
According to New York media, Mr Wahhaj’s father, Imam Siriaj Wahhaj, is a prominent Muslim leader in Brooklyn, who has been called “one of the most admired Muslim leaders” in the US.
He reportedly testified as a character witness at the trial for Omar Abdel-Rahman, who was later convicted of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
In 1991, he became the first Muslim to lead an opening prayer before the US House of Representatives.
What the BBC article omitted:
Political activist Linda Sarsour has a long track record of praising and thanking her beloved mentor, you guessed it, the “amazing” Imam Siraj Wahhaj.
This will hurt the Democrat party, so don’t expect the MSM to pick this up.
