(Tea Party 247) – Let’s say it together: Muslims are not our friends. Any appearance of friendliness is only a tool to gain access to us when we are most vulnerable.
A Saudi Arabian national attending the University of New Mexico has been charged with illegally possessing a firearm, court documents reveal. Considering the fact that a Saudi national just opened fire on a naval base in Florida murdering three Americans in the name of Islam, we shouldn’t be too shocked to see yet another Saudi involved with criminal activity.
Hassan Alqahtani, 28, was charged with illegal possession of a firearm by a person admitted to the U.S. under a non-immigrant visa, according to federal prosecutors.
DC Clothesline reports:
The FBI said in an affidavit that a search of his home Thursday turned up a .380-caliber Cobra handgun.
The affidavit says the FBI began investigating Alqahtani after a person who said he knows the student called an agency tip line on Aug. 8, claiming Alqahtani was “creating a list of people who he wants to kill before he leaves the U.S.” which included the tipster and University of New Mexico professors.
The affidavit does not include any details about the alleged list and does not mention any threats to kill people.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Mexico said in a statement that “Alqahtani is not currently charged with anything other than possession of a firearm. I cannot confirm or deny an ongoing investigation of any other conduct.”
Alqahtani turned himself into authorities Friday afternoon and appeared before a judge who ordered him held through the weekend, the Albuquerque Journal reported. He is scheduled for a detention hearing Monday.
Assistant U.S. Attorney George Kraehe argued that Alqahtani should remain in custody because the alleged list included professors, and the school’s graduation is Saturday, the newspaper reported.
Naturally, Alqahtani’s defense attorney, Joel Meyers is alleging the gun did not belong to Alqahtani and expressed disappointment over the fact that he was arrested just prior to his graduation.
“If he was such a concern,” Meyers said, according to the AP, “why the delay until right before his graduation?”
Is there ever a bad time to get terrorists off the streets? If Alqahtani possessed a firearm and had a kill list, which law enforcement admits was more of a mental list and there was no physical list, it’s still worth investigating and being safe instead of sorry.
Alqahtani’s claim that the gun is not his but rather his wife’s is an interesting story. The Daily Mail reports that a criminal complaint says a “confidential source told investigators Alqahtani approached him in November expressing interest in buying a rifle and that Alqahtani later said he was interested instead in acquiring a smaller gun for protection.”
The court documents record that Alqahtani was aware of the fact that he was not allowed to possess a firearm and that he planned on just having his “girlfriend” claim the gun belonged to her should the weapon ever be found.
Meyers is alleging that the gun does belong to his wife (who was described as his girlfriend in the criminal complaint) despite the fact that she told law enforcement she was not aware of any guns being in the home but later went on to claim the gun as her own.
The Daily Mail reports:
During testimony on Monday, Labuhn suggested the woman was afraid of Alqahtani and that she had a black eye and bruising on her side when she was interviewed by authorities.
She said the injuries were from a bike accident, but Labuhn said the bicycle she claimed to have been using had flat tires and was covered with cobwebs.
Alqahtani’s wife and her attorney were among those in the courtroom Monday.
Alqahtani sounds like he could be threat to the safety of others and law enforcement was right to get him into custody and the court system. We can’t take these kinds of situations lightly. Not in 21st century America. We’ve opened our borders to Muslims, who hate us and literally want to see us dead, and now we’re reaping the consequences of that.
Muslims are not our friends.
