A recent news story (which never made it on the station’s official website) KOLO-TV’s Sydnee Scofield reported that Syrian refugees are beginning to resettle in the Reno, Nevada area. While her report touched on the need for jobs, housing and social services — she missed the possibility of terrorism.
As of May 2016, of the 1,037 Syrians admitted to the U.S., only two have been Christian. Furthermore, the majority have yet to be vetted by the Obama administration as to their beliefs, so there’s a chance a Daesh (ISIS) sleeper terrorist is ‘secreted’ among them.
To top this off, the Reno area already has a network developed leading back to the Muslim Brotherhood. In the June 2008 obituary of University of Nevada, Reno Professor Ahmed Essa, published in the Reno Gazette-Journal, it states that he’s one of the founders of the Northern Nevada Muslim Society (now the Northern Nevada Islamic Center or NNIC) and had been an advisor to the UNR Muslim Student Association (MSA.)
The MSA began in 1963 in Illinois with the help of the Egyptian-backed Muslim Brotherhood and has since found its way to nearly every U.S university campus. From the MSA grew such pro-Muslim organizations as the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA,) the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT,) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR.)
In the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorist financing case, the Department of Justice named ISNA, CAIR, and NAIT as “entities who are and/or were members of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.” The Canada Revenue Service revoked ISNA’s registration in September 2013 after being caught funding the Hizbul Mujahideen, a violent wing of Jamaat-e-Islami and designated terror organization.
And while neither the NNIC or UNR’s MSA are terror-related organizations, the ground work exists to be exploited by a so-called refugee who has more jihad on his mind and in his heart than escaping a war-torn Syria.
