Convicted terrorist Aafia Siddiqui

Aafia Siddiqui  is an MIT-trained neuroscientist who married a top Al Qaeda operative who intended to blow up gas stations or poison water reservoirs in the United States. She is known as “Lady Al Qaeda,” and was convicted of attempting to murder Americans in Afghanistan after she was found with plans for a “mass casualty attack” in the United States, along with a list of New York landmarks.Aafia Siddiqui named Farha Ahmed as her legal counsel in a handwritten letter in October of 2010. Farha Ahmed was running for office in Texas. Farha Ahmed was the leader of the anti-Geller protests outside my Sugar Land, Texas Tea party event.

Farha Ahmed, holding sign, turned away from camera.

Farha Ahmed, lawyer for chemical weapons jihadist Lady Al Qaeda, also tried to infiltrate the Republican party by running for office. Ahmed ran for Sugar Land City Council District 4 but was defeated, thanks to great Americans who alerted Texans to the subversive politician in their midst. Ahmed lied about her involvement in the Lady Al Qaeda case. Despite the craven quisling government officials like the DA, who wrote glowing letters to their constituents endorsing the stealth jihadist candidate Ahmed, and the fact that her terror-tied alliances were scrubbed from the web, she was defeated. But remember, the enemy never sleeps and never quits. So she will be back.

And Aafia Siddiqui will be going back to Pakistan, thanks to yet another Obama capitulation to jihad. How long will it be before the Pakistani government releases her?

US agrees on Aafia Siddiqui’s extradition The Nation (Pakistan), July 19, 2013

In a major breakthrough, the US has offered Pakistan to sign prisoner swap agreement for the extradition of Dr Aafia Siddiqi, after which the Pakistani scientist will be allowed to serve the remaining part of her imprisonment in homeland….


And from Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch: 

“The agreement states that Aafia will have to stay imprisoned in Pakistan for the number of years (86) she was sentenced to in the US.” Not a chance. If she goes to Pakistan, she will go free.


Aafia Siddiqui: Repaying Opportunity With Terror

By Mark Tapson


The convicted Islamic terrorist Aafia Siddiqui at her graduation, now imprisoned in Texas

One of the more jaw-dropping excuses that the news media have concocted in defense of the Boston Marathon bombers’ murderous evil is that America herself failed the two immigrant brothers. “Expecting hospitality,” sympathized an American University professor, “they felt alienated and disillusioned, even with all of the opportunities and privileges available to them as citizens of this country.” This is reminiscent of a parallel tale of opportunities and privileges made available to another jihadist immigrant –Aafia Siddiqui, who attended the same Boston mosque as the Tsarnaev brothers, benefited from the same welcome embrace of our society, and like them, still repaid it by plotting terror.

The Pakistani Siddiqui immigrated to the United States in 1990, graduated from MIT on a full scholarship and obtained a Ph.D. in 2001 from Brandeis. A full scholarship to MIT – quite an opportunity and a privilege. Described by her fellow students as “religious,” she joined the Muslim Students’ Association, a creation of the subversive Muslim Brotherhood, and solicited money for Brooklyn’s Al Kifah Refugee Center, an early nerve center for al Qaeda in America.

When Pakistan asked the U.S. for help in 1995 to combat religious extremism, Siddiqui circulated an email deriding Pakistan for joining “the typical gang of our contemporary Muslim governments,” and closing with a quote from the Quran warning Muslims not to take Jews and Christians as friends. She wrote three guides for teaching Islam, expressing the hope in one that “America becomes a Muslim land.” Meanwhile she took a 12-hour pistol training course.

Immediately prior to the 9/11 attacks, the year she received her Ph.D., she and five cohorts bought $19 million worth of blood diamonds in Liberia to fund al-Qaeda operations. After 9/11, Siddiqui insisted on leaving the U.S. Her husband said she wanted him to move to Afghanistan and work as a medic for the mujahideen.

In May 2002, the FBI questioned Siddiqui and her husband regarding their internet purchase of $10,000 worth of night vision gear, body armor, and military manuals including The Anarchist’s ArsenalFugitiveAdvanced Fugitive, and How to Make C-4. The husband claimed that these were for use in hunting and camping trips – because who doesn’t fish with C-4? They divorced in 2002, and in 2003 she returned to her native Pakistan and disappeared.

She was soon thereafter fingered as a courier and financier for al Qaeda by no less an authority than its mastermind Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, whose nephew (also an al Qaeda member) Siddiqui had married in 2003. In 2004, the FBI named her one of its seven Most Wanted Terrorists. She was finally caught in 2008 in Afghanistan.

At the time of her arrest, she was carrying in her purse handwritten notes and a computer drive containing recipes for bombs and weapons of mass destruction, instructions on how to make machines to shoot down U.S. drones, descriptions of New York City landmarks with references to a mass casualty attack, and two pounds of cyanide. While being questioned by U.S. authorities in Afghanistan, she grabbed a rifle and shot at Army personnel while shouting “Allahu Akbar” and yelling that she wanted to kill Americans.

Siddiqui tried to fire her lawyers due to their Jewish background, claimed that her case was orchestrated by unspecified Jews, and demanded that there be no Jews among her jurors. The jury, which was not allowed to hear about the chemical weapons or her al Qaeda involvement, convicted her in early 2010 of two counts of attempted murder, armed assault, using and carrying a firearm, and three counts of assault on U.S. officers and employees. She was sentenced to 86 years in prison. (See her Wikipedia entry for all relevant links to the above summary.)

Aafia Siddiqui was someone who benefited enormously from the opportunities and privileges she received as an American immigrant. Was she “alienated” by them, as the American University professor claims about the Boston bombers? “Disillusioned”? Does that explain her Jew-hatred, her hunger to assist in carrying out terror attacks against Americans?

Instead of blaming America, we should be looking at the hate being spread in mosques like the ones attended by Siddiqui and the Boston bombers. AsUSA Today reports, the Islamic Society of Boston mosque in Cambridge and the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, separated by the Charles River, are owned by the same entity,  their leadership is intertwined, and they are affiliated with the Muslim American Society, a Muslim Brotherhood legacy group….

….When politically correct apologists theorize that jihadist immigrants to America feel “alienated and disillusioned, even with all of the opportunities and privileges available to them as citizens of this country,” they are blind to the contradiction inherent in that statement. They refuse to grasp that jihadists are driven by a supremacist ideology to seek our destruction regardless of what we do or don’t do. With one hand those immigrants took advantage of everything our free, open society had to offer, and with the other they waged jihad against us.

How many more innocent Americans will be maimed or die, like eight-year-old Martin Richard waiting excitedly for his dad at the Boston Marathon finish line, because our government refuses to allow that ideology to be named, much less combatted? How many more, because our leftist elites want to absolve terrorists and shift the blame for their atrocities to America herself? How many more, because we will not clamp down on mosques linked to terrorism?

We cannot win a war that we pretend does not exist.

Has Northeastern University Done Its Homework on Islamic Extremism?


Back in March, Northeastern University’s president, Joseph E. Aoun, was appointed to an academic board that advises the Department of Homeland Security on how American universities can contribute to antiterrorism efforts. Aoun told The Boston Globe: “We need more research and training related to security.” Ironically, Aoun’s own Northeastern campus may be an appropriate place for him to start.

Perhaps we can help: Americans for Peace and Tolerance (APT) will soon release a 10-minute video documenting Islamic radicalism at Northeastern. Based on several months of research, the video will describe a culture of extremism residing at Northeastern’s officially sanctioned and financially supported Muslim student group, the Islamic Society of Northeastern University (ISNU).

The campus group has received thousands of dollars in funding from Boston’s Roxbury mega-mosque run by the Muslim American Society (MAS), a group federal authorities describe as an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The ISNU is headed by the university’s Muslim chaplain, Abdullah Faaruuq, who is closely associated with the Roxbury mosque.

Two Muslim students who attended Northeastern and who had ties to the Roxbury mosque have been charged with terror plots. Two other convicted terrorists from Boston are being actively supported by Faaruuq and Northeastern’s Muslim students.

*Rezwan Ferdaus, a 2008 Northeastern University physics grad who frequented the Roxbury mosque, described himself to undercover FBI agents as a fan of Al Qaeda and was arrested in 2011 for a plot to attack the Capitol building and the Pentagon.

*Tarek Mehanna, who was convicted and sent to prison for 17 1/2 years for providing material support to Al Qaeda and conspiring to kill Americans. At the time of his arrest in 2009, the FBI alleged that he and others plotted to attack a mall in North Attleboro in an automatic assault rifle rampage similar to the Mumbai attacks in India. Before his arrest, he would frequently give classes on Islam at Northeastern for ISNU’s evening “Deen and Dine” programs.

*Ahmad Abusamra, another Northeastern graduate and son of the Roxbury mosque’s former vice president, was indicted together with Mehanna and is now a fugitive in Syria.

*Aafia Siddiqui – an MIT student who prayed at Imam Faaruuq’s mosque near the Northeastern campus and became his friend – had been the most wanted woman on FBI’s list of Al Qaeda terrorists and was caught with plans for a chemical attack on New York City. She was sentenced in 2010 to 86 years for attempted murder of FBI agents in Afghanistan.

Faaruuq has been publicly campaigning on behalf of Siddiqui and Mehanna. The chaplain praised Siddiqui for trying to shoot FBI agents in Afghanistan, telling worshippers at a mosque in Worcester in 2011: “They say that she took up a machine gun while they held her captive in the other room… What a brave woman she is. What a brave woman she continues to be, and how much her bravery and her faith and her belief, warrant our support at this time.”….


Raising Money for “Lady Al-Qaida”

By Steve Emerson

A Northeastern University Muslim chaplain, who also is a Roxbury, Mass. imam, hailed a terrorist convicted of attempting to murder Americans in Afghanistan as “brave,” while painting the United States as an oppressive nation of infidels.
“They say that she took up a machine gun while they held her captive in the other room and was ready to attack her captives. What a brave woman she is,” Abdullah Faaruuq said at a Dec. 8 fundraiser for Aafia Siddiqui.
Siddiqui, a Pakistani scientist also known as “Lady al-Qaida,” is serving an 86-year prison sentence after being convicted of attempting to assault and murder American officers in Afghanistan. Prosecutors say she grabbed an Army officer’s M-4 rifle and fired it at another officer and other members of a U.S. interview team at an Afghan police compound in July 2008. She was originally detained by Afghan officials who found in her possession notes about a “mass casualty attack” in the United States, along with a list of New York landmarks.
Abdullah Faaruuq, at another event.
The fundraiser, “In Support of our Sister, Dr. Aafia Siddiqui,” was held at the Islamic Center of Worcester. (Does the Houston area Muslim community also support this terrorist? What do you think? -ed.)  Speakers repeatedly cast her prosecution and conviction as unjust.
“What a brave woman she continues to be, and how much her bravery and her faith and her belief warrants our support at this time,” said Faaruuq, an imam at Roxbury’s Mosque for the Praising of Allah. “It is said that we’re trying to raise $30,000 tonight. I would say it’s better that we’ve raised your awareness and raised your ire, as your anger against a government who would level the charges that they have against this woman and they say she is guilty. I would say she’s only guilty of defending herself.”
In addition to lauding Siddiqui’s “bravery,” Faaruuq also condemned American soldiers, the very people who defend America, as “kafirs,” meaning infidels.
“And if my mother was in the same place,” he said, “she would have took (sic) her West Indian machete and cut her way through those kafirs.”
He repeated an unsubstantiated claim that Siddiqui was abused while in custody. Muslims around the world are “cowering at the hand of the disbeliever,” Faaruuq said, “and this one woman locked up deep down, possibly raped and abused, and they’re saying that she was a terrorist, afraid of a 100-pound woman. And I say they call this the land of the free and the home of the brave. And I call it the land of the coward and the home of the slave.”
The presiding judge who reviewed all the evidence saw things differently. U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman said “significant incarceration” was called for because Siddiqui’s acts were premeditated. In his sentencing, he also noted anti-American statements witnesses said were made by Siddiqui while firing on the soldiers, like “I want to kill Americans” and “Death to America.”
It’s not the first time Faaruuq has engaged in violent rhetoric while standing up for Siddiqui. Boston-based watchdog of radical Islamists Charles Jacobs wrote in October that Faaruuq sees cases like Siddiqui’s as part of an effort to target Muslims in America. Muslims should “grab onto the gun and the sword, go out and do your job” in response, Faaruuq said…


There is a famous quote, origin disputed, but widely attributed to Lenin

“…Westerners who deny the existence of the Soviet’s police-state terror are useful idiots.’”

Farha Ahmed’s direct ties, affiliations and general coziness to Islamsts, Jihadis and Anti-American Muslim Brotherhood groups has been revealed in posts here, here, here, here, here, here and here

Nothing reported has stated Farha Ahmed has broken laws or of doing anything illegal.

It was however all factual. It was however all troubling. It was however all previously undisclosed. It has for the most part been hidden by Farha from many of her supporters and Sugar Land’s voters, and it has been either ignored or worse, suppressed by local news media.

Much information came from official US Government sources. Some came from the troubling organizations themselves (sometimes but not always directly)

It remains evident that Sugar Land voters were only being shown the part of Farha’s community activities she wanted them to see but were not being shown a fuller picture, one that involved Ahmed in affiliations and associations with Islamist groups that she ran in tandem to her community activities for Sugar Land.

Whether Ahmed is or isn’t Lady al-Qaeda’s attorney should not be the focal point  of this story.

It just makes a good starting point to shine a light on Farha Ahmed’s association with players in the radical Islamic movement (like Hamas-linked CAIR and Hamas sister organization ISNA) who are currently striving to attain power and influence at any and every level of government in the USA, any which way they can.

The driving force and common factor behind this movement (and Ahmed’s connections) is the Muslim Brotherhood. Whether through direct involvement or through individuals having similar ideologies, they task the Muslim community to

understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad: in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within; and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands, and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions…It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny...     (Muslim Brotherhood in the USA Manifesto 1991)

Previous posts that detailed Farha Ahmed’s involvement with these types of groups and individuals raised questions that Sugar Land voters could be asking themselves as they research Farha Ahmed’s candidacy for a seat on Sugar Land City Council.

Topics covered by those questions have been

– Farha Ahmed’s appointment as attorney by convicted terrorist Aaifa Siddiqui aka Lady Al-Qaeda.

– The many connections Lady Al-Qaeda’s family has to to Farha and their possible support of her election campaign.

– Farah Ahmed’s obfuscation and distraction techniques when discussing a flier detailing her involvement with Siddiqui

– Farha’s leadership role within the Freedom & Justice Foundation of Dallas (website since scrubbed) shows her serving and working alongside radical Islamists, Muslim Brotherhood operatives and other Anti-American individuals

– Muslim Brotherhood ties within the Freedom & Justice Foundation are strong enough to raise concern that Farha Ahmed maybe deployed (wittingly or unwittingly, knowingly or unknowingly) by the MB to make a stealth move into Sugar Land City government

– Farha Ahmed, an attorney, described by the organizations she works with as “a Muslim activist” claims to know little about the workings of Shariah Finance, and feigns to have not studied the differences between Shariah Law and the US Constitution yet much work of ‘Muslim activists’ in Houston, Texas and the Nation focus on barriers within the US Constitution being removed for Muslims in order they be allowed to practice Shariah.

– Islamic doctrines of deceit and halftruths can be used to disguise an Islamist agenda

–  Farha Ahmed’s participation in conferences held by funders of terrorism.

– Ahmed served on panels at these conferences alongside: Islamists; Terrorist sympathizers; lawbreakers and associates of convicted terrorists. At worst she did this knowingly; at best with willful ignorance

– Farha Ahmed’s co-moderated a banquet for the Mayor of Houston hosted by an organization tied to Hamas

– Farha introduced a keynote speaker at the Mayor’s banquet as an example of a Muslim with good interfaith outreach, even though the radical Imam sponsored an Anti-Semitic rally at his mosque, and is surrounded by Jew-Haters.

– All of these connections, affiliations and milestones for a community leader are excluded from Ahmed’s bio in her candidacy for City Council.

– Ahmed self-servingly declared herself a victim of a smear campaign once factual information emerged that negatively impacted her candidacy

It is readily acknowledged that this is a municipal city council election under discussion, and not a State or Federal position with National Security implications so the ideology underpinning some of Farha’s connections and affiliations may not matter.

But some of the ideology does (Shariah Finance and its yet to be tested constitutionality; planning issues; the creep of Shariah; equal protection under the law).

Only Sugar Land voters can determine whether Farha’s associations with these dubious organizations and characters matter. But at least now a clearer picture has emerged of Farha Ahmed’s activities.

Which brings the final two questions Sugar Land voters could be asking themselves:

Why was so much information about Farha Ahmed’s affiliations with radical, non-mainstream groups kept away from voters, sometimes to the extent of scrubbing websites to hide her affiliations ?

Has Farha Ahmed gained enough trust to be a gatekeeper for Sugar Land’s citizens ?  


Farha Ahmed, a candidate in the June 11 run-off for a seat on Sugar Land City Council played a key role last year in Hamas linked CAIR’s sponsorship of the Mayor of Houston’s Ifthar dinner.

At the August 2010 event, detailed here in CAIR’s press release, Farha Ahmed, “attorney and Muslim activist” was recognized as a co-moderator of the event, along with Hamas supporter and CAIR executive Mustafa Carroll (introduced to readers here as an associate of Ahmed’s, a Muslim Brotherhood operative and a 9-11 denier)

Ahmed introduced the keynote speaker of the event, Sheikh Sayed Jawad Qazwini and can clearly be seen in the opening 30 seconds of the below video clip lauding Imam Qazwini for his interfaith work and his post 9/11 outreach.

Perhaps Farha should have done her research into Qazwini more carefully.

In spite of Ahmed’s adulation and the Imam’s waffling platitudes, celebration of his interfaith work rings hollow when it is learned that in 2005, Qazwini was the center of controversy having invited notorious anti-Semite, holocaust denier and all around KKK type William Baker to be a guest speaker at the Boca Raton mosque run by Qazwini’s Shia organization. At the time, the mosque was forced to retract fabricated messages of support from Boca’s Jewish community leaders. (More about the event, known as the Nazi-Islamist Hatefest of Boca Raton here).

The Anti-Defamation League makes note of Baker’s anti-Semitic rants, mostly at Muslim sponsored events in their Hate Speech dossier here.

Qazwini who is also known for his “9/11 blame America first” speeches follows in the family business as his uncle and relatives have Islamic centers and mosques across the country.

One of them, Uncle Sayed Mustafa Al-Qazwini, the founder and Director of the Islamic Educational Center of Orange County can be seen at 14:45 into this sermon called “Challenges facing Muslims” (video poor quality but sound is good) trying to explain away the following Qur’anic verse:

“O you who believe, do not take the Jews and Christians as friends.” (Al Ma’idah, Surah 5:51)

He stated: “Qur’an is not saying do not follow Jews and Christians because they are Jews and Christians. Qur’an is not anti-Semitic. Qur’an is anti-evil. Because they were evil. This specific group of Jews and Christians, who were in Medina at that time, were evil people. And Allah was telling the Muslims to avoid them, because they stood against justice and faith. Stubbornly, they rejected the truth. They did not let Prophet Muhammad to [sic] propagate the word of Allah.”

So according to Uncle Qazwini, Muslims should not befriend Jews and Christians because they are – Jews and Christians –  but because . . . . Jews and Christians are evil.

That explains a lot.

But it doesnt explain why Farha Ahmed decided to associate herself with these types of people . . . . or maybe it does

Which brings us to the two questions Sugar Land voters could be asking themselves:

Given Farha’s (now outed) association with radical nutbags, supporters of genocidal maniacs and Anti-American players, was it an intentional act to omit from Farhas’ bio as a candidate for Sugar Land City Council something as prestigious as hosting the Mayor of Houston’s banquet some 8 weeks before her candidacy announcement?

Why did Farha Ahmed introduce a person who travels in anti-semitic, holocaust denying and Jew-hating circles as a champion of interfaith causes, even though it was well known (except by Farha Ahmed apparently) that this was not true ?



An earlier post here suggested far more troubling information about Ahmed not be overlooked in the Farha Ahmed/Lady Al-Qaeda discussion as Sugar Land voters evaluate candidates for a seat on their City Council.

Misleading information put out by Ahmed in response to a controversial flier about her Lady Al-Qaeda connections should be pointed out.

Then focus should shift to her more troubling connections to Islamist groups.

Responding in statements to the press last week, Farha Ahmed feebly spun her linkage to Aaifa Siddiqui aka Lady Al-Qaeda as a misunderstanding by others based on her pro-bono work some years ago on a case of missing children.

Interesting that Ahmed brought up an unnamed, seemingly unconnected case from several years ago, and then asked voters not to delve deeper as to why her mentioning of it now means there is no connection between her and Lady Al-Qadea.


Many will recognize Farha’s “Move right along, nothing to see here” technique as similar to that often employed by disingenuous politicians eager to throw truth-seekers off track.

Lazy reporters in Houston/Fort Bend/Sugar Land played their role as useful idiots perfectly, swallowing this distraction hook, line and sinker

Well sorry Farha, but having already drilled a little deeper into this story, (as reporters should have done) even more information comes to light that strongly connects Farha Ahmed to Lady Al-Qaeda

Sugar Land voters may be interested to learn that during her arrest and trial, it was alleged that Siddiqui’s American born children went missing in Pakistan, allegedly kidnapped in 2003, but were since found.

Whether this specific case is what Farha refers to as the reason why she thinks people would connect her (or not) to Lady Al-Qaeda cant be determined, as she didnt say.

But she didnt not say either.

What definitely does connect Farha Ahmed, a Texas Attorney to Aaifa Siddiqui is  Siddiqui’s hand written letter specifically naming Farha Ahmed of Texas as her sole attorney. This letter is a public record, and Farha Ahmed’s name can be clearly seen on a Houston television “news” report.

Quite why KHOU-TV & Dave Fehling, Lesley Wise at the Houston Chronicle & Jamie Mock at FortBendNow chose to ignore this aspect of the story is unclear. Were they to have pulled on those very visible threads, a story would have unfolded for them that disclosed Ahmed’s strong connections to Lady Al-Qadea leading them directly to Ahmed’s association with Islamist groups.

If Farha Ahmed, Attorney of Sugar Land Texas, candidate for a seat on Sugar Land City Council is not THE Texas attorney Siddiqui refers to in her hand written appointment notice, will the real Texas attorney appointed by Siddiqui and also named Farha Ahmed please stand up.

What, no one else standing ????? –  – didnt think so

So, questions Sugar Land voters could be asking themselves as they research the allegations contained in this flier and Ahmed’s responses to it

Have Ahmed’s comments about being unable to practice law anywhere other than Texas answered the question in the controversial flier: What connection does Siddiqui (a Texas resident)  have to Ahmed (an attorney Licensed in the State of Texas) that made the now jailed Terrorist choose her as an Attorney ?

Does Farha Ahmed really expect Sugar Land voters to believe that Aaifa Siddiqui threw a dart into the “Attorneys” section of the phone book, and hey, wow, wuddya-look-at-that –  it landed on Texas attorney Farha Ahmed?

Farha Ahmed claims there is a smear campaign against her, but is it really a smear if it’s the truth?

Are voters in Sugar Land being subjected to a classic example of the Islamic doctrine of kitman – telling a half truth to further Islam?
