20 ‘Vetted’ Muslim Refugees Who Turned to Terrorism After Being Allowed Into America

Put this into context: there has been no refugee Buddhists, Christians, Jews who turned to terrorism after being permitted entry into the United States. And that is pretty remarkable. If terrorism is a human issue and not a Muslim issue, figures would speak otherwise.

The list of refugee terrorists unfortunately is not complete with the names mentioned below. There are more of them.

  • In 2016, Somali Muslim migrant Mohammad Barry, who in February 2016 stabbed multiple patrons at a restaurant owned by an Israeli Arab Christian;
  • Ahmad Khan Rahami, an Afghan Muslim migrant set off bombs in New York City and New Jersey in September 2016;
  • Arcan Cetin, a Turkish Muslim migrant murdered five people in a mall in Burlington, Washington in September 2016;
  • Dahir Adan, another Somali Muslim migrant stabbed mall shoppers in St. Cloud while screaming “Allahu akbar” in October 2016;
  • Abdul Razak Artan, yet another Somali Muslim migrant injured nine people with car and knife attacks at Ohio State University in November 2016.

While the lying media is perpetuating the lie refugees do not pose a terrorist threat, the facts show otherwise.

Senator and soon-to-be Attorney General Jeff Sessions compiled this list of refugees-turned-jihadists in 2016 while Obama was pushing to dramatically increase the amount of so-called “refugees” allowed into the United States.

– On May 25, 2016, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Bilal Abood was sentenced to four years in prison for making a false statement to the FBI. Abood, an Iraqi translator for the U.S. military, was admitted to the United States through the Special Immigrant Visa program for Iraqi translators in 2009, and subsequently became a citizen. Abood enlisted in the Army and went through basic training at Fort Jackson in 2010, but left for unknown reasons. According to court documents, after being prevented from boarding an international flight, Abood told FBI agents that he intended to go to Iraq to visit family. Subsequently, Abood left the United States through Mexico and then traveled through various countries to get to Syria to join ISIS. A subsequent search of his computer revealed that he pledged an oath to the leader of ISIS, despite denying that he had ever made such a pledge.

–On January 7, 2016, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California, Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab was charged with providing materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements and representations to the United States government. He was separately indicted on March 17, 2016 for attempting to provide material support to acts of violence overseas. Al-Jayab — a Palestinian born in Iraq — was admitted to the United States as a refugee in 2012. According to the criminal complaint, beginning in October of 2012 — the very same month he first arrived in the United States — Al-Jayab began communicating with numerous individuals about his intention to go to Syria and fight for terrorist organizations. In April 2013, Al-Jayab made multiple statements to another individual (later identified as Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan) regarding his experience handling weapons and killing individuals in Syria. In November 2013, just one year after being welcomed to the United States as a refugee, he traveled to Syria and posted on social media that he was fighting with various terrorist organizations, stating “America will not isolate me from my Islamic duty. Only death will do us part.”

On January 7, 2016, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan was charged in an indictment with attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, making false statements, and attempting to procure citizenship or naturalization unlawfully. The indictment states that he attempted to provide training, expert advice and assistance, and personnel — specifically himself — to a terrorist organization. Al Hardan — a Palestinian born in Iraq — was admitted to the United States as a refugee in 2009, and obtained a green card in 2011. When applying to become a U.S. citizen, he knowingly responded, certified, and swore untruthfully that he was not associated with a terrorist organization when, in fact, he associated with members and sympathizers of ISIS throughout 2014. During an interview in October 2015, Al Hardan falsely represented that he had never received any type of weapons training, when in fact he had received automatic machine gun training. According to media accounts, Al Hardan told his wife “I will go to Syria. I want to blow myself up. . . . I am against America.”

On August 12, 2015, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho, Fazliddin Kurbanov was found guilty of conspiring and attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and possessing an unregistered destructive device. Kurbanov is a native of Uzbekistan who came to the United States as a refugee in 2009. U.S. Assistant Attorney General John Carlin stated that he “conspired to provide material support to the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and procured bomb-making materials in the interest of perpetrating a terrorist attack on American soil.” According to press reports, Kurbanov began his life as a Muslim, but his family claimed that they faced persecution after they converted to Orthodox Christianity. After coming to the United States with his family as a refugee, Kurbanov is said to have converted back to Islam and radicalized.

On April 20, 2015, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota, Guled Ali Omar was charged with conspiracy and attempt to provide material support to ISIS. Omar was born in a Kenyan refugee camp, and sources indicate he came to the United States as a refugee when he was a child, obtained a green card, and subsequently applied for and received citizenship. Omar is the younger brother of another indicted fugitive, Ahmed Ali Omar, who left the United States in 2007 to fight for Al-Shabaab. Another one of his brothers, Mohamed Ali Omar, was convicted in March of 2015 of threatening federal agents when they came to the family’s residence to interview Guled Omar. During a press conference, U.S. Attorney for the District of Minnesota, Andy Luger, said that Omar “never stopped plotting,” and had previously attempted to leave the United States.

Ibrahim knowingly lied on his citizenship application and previously lied in his request for refugee status, by falsely claiming that he was of a member of the minority Awer clan in Somalia and subject to persecution by the majority Hawiye clan. Ibrahim was actually a member of the Hawiye clan and not subject to persecution. In fact, according to court documents, “Ibrahim’s family was famous . . . [and] [t]hrough his clan lineage, Ibrahim was related to known Somali terrorists[.]” Ibrahim also admitted he lied on his citizenship application by having previously lied on his refugee application by falsely claiming that he had not provided material support to a terrorist group, when he had in fact provided material support in the form of cash to an Al-Shabaab member.

President Trump’s refugee ban is common sense.

There is no reason any of these people should have been allowed into our country.

If President Trump is to be criticized for anything, it should be for not making his ban even broader.

  1. The statistics and the stories of these many individuals of Islamic bent share the common theme of a deep hatred of America, similar of course to the hatred of European cultures … one Muslim man I recall from a YouTube video quite honestly said that there would be no peace between democracy and Sharia law, one is fully incompatible with the other.

    The articles on this site remind me how our own nation, the U.S., has changed. In a Western state, I noticed that the majority of people at the airport were white, and quite friendly and helpful. Then flying into the Seattle airport, I was startled at how much the composition of travelers has changed in only the past 15-20 years, so many more people from all corners of the world, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, where honestly there had been a white majority, and as I white man, was in the minority of all those many travelers.

    There was a conversation never really held when those in power advocated for bringing in many ‘migrant’ people into America in such huge numbers, with the stronger emphasis starting in the 1960s. It needs to be remembered that this was never really discussed with the people of our nation living at that time, how would so called ‘multiculturalism’ work (and largely in many cases, it has not). Great conflicts now between exist blacks who feel aggrieved against those whom they see as their persecutors (this in present day), primarily whites, even though today’s whites have no history themselves, personally, of slavery.

    Naturally, most people from various parts of the world in coming into America and Europe tend to aggregate together, to form their own enclaves of a sort. Often the society’s stated goal of assimilation does not really happen, and is not really wanted by whites, Hispanics, Asians or those from the Middle East. As the old saying goes ‘birds of a feather, flock together’.

    Yet again, with Trump’s inexpert handling of stemming the flow of many Muslims very desirous of coming into America, great cries of ‘racism’ and “Islamophobia’, have rung out this week. If the situation had been handled with more finesse, that certainly would have helped.

    Muslims being of such a faith where it is by far the least likely to assimilate, from what I have read it is an offense in their ‘religion’ to mix with anyone who is not Muslim. Of course, there are some more moderate Muslims who may reject this. But, by and large, those who embrace societal values of America and Europe, long time residents who are assimilated, are suspect to Muslims as it contradicts in their minds, the tenets of Islam.

    The idea of a greatly varied and mixed culture with people of many creeds and colors was not really ever given due consideration for the great changes and challenges. These changing demographics especially notable in Europe now, Are having a profound effect on European nations and those nations very stability.

    People are largely ‘tribal’, and those of tribes who detest our values, traditions and culture, are unlikely to change their ideas or for the most violent, the wish to inflict great harm on their host countries is very real and present.

    • First, for those with their eyes open, multiculturalism has been looked at and found to be an abject failure. An honest look at many parts of Europe, who have been worshipping on the alter of multiculturalism for decades will show multiculuralisms failures.

      The left would have screamed like stuck pigs no matter how Trump announced his restrictions. How would you have used more “finesse” as you call it? What is your “expert” opinion on handling this situation?

      Perhaps if you understood the progressive lefts motives for irrevocably changing America through unfettered immigration and islams political motives you would see there was no perfect way, as far as thes two groups are concerned, to announce the new restrictions. However, the majority of American people agree with Trump and would like to see even MORE restrictions.

  3. My ancestors are from Germany and when they came to America, they assimilated to American culture. They did not demand that America bend to theirs. Herein lies the problem with Muslims. They do not want to assimilate nor will they, yet they insist that we change our way of life to accommodate them. Sharia go home!

      • @ William, well said. I watched Bill Maher’s show tonight where he hosted Sam Harris, both of them very opposed to Islamic fundamentalists. But they also claimed that having ‘moderate’ Muslims come into the U.S. was the right thing to do, but then made in the same interview the point that no one can know what Muslims are thinking.

        How hard is it for any Muslim radical to smile at the ‘infidels’ just as their ‘holy book’ the Koran says is behavior recommended for Muslims when dealing with ‘infidels’. Though I agreed with the majority of Maher & Harris argument, with is very opposed to radical Islam, they have the idea that we can talk to moderates and help ‘change’ Islam. They are not going to change attitude and beliefs held by Muslims for many centuries, they are deluded if they think that they or any person in a Western society can.

  4. Qur’an 3:28—Let not the believers take disbelievers for their friends in preference to believers. Whoso doeth that hath no connection with Allah unless (it be) that ye but guard yourselves against them, taking (as it were) security. Allah biddeth you beware (only) of Himself. Unto Allah is the journeying.

    Ibn Kathir on 3:28—Allah said next, (unless you indeed fear a danger from them) meaning, except those believers who in some areas or times fear for their safety from the disbelievers. In this case, such believers are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly, but never inwardly. For instance, Al-Bukhari recorded that Abu Ad-Darda’ said, “We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them.” Al-Bukhari said that Al-Hasan said, “The Tuqyah is allowed until the Day of Resurrection.”
