Rocky Mountain jihad? Al-Turki, of course, says it is all because he is Muslim. But the Indonesian maid he assaulted and enslaved was a Muslim too. “Saudi In Aurora Probed For Possible Terror Link,” from CBS4Denver.com, with thanks to Jihad Watch News Editor Eric Schwappach:
(CBS4) AURORA, Colo. A Saudi man living in Aurora has been under investigation for possible links to terrorism, according to his attorneys.
Homaidan Al-Turki was already facing state and federal charges for enslaving and sexually assaulting an Indonesian maid.
Al-Turki, 37, is a graduate student at the University of Colorado, studying linguistics. He’s been in the United States since 1995. That’s when his lawyers said the investigation started….
Federal Court documents filed by Al-Turki’s attorneys detail the investigation against him. The documents claim the Denver Joint Terrorism Task Force has had Al-Turki under a “full fledge investigation” suspecting “he is closely aligned to terrorists and may be providing material support to terrorism.”
Al-Turki’s lawyers said the government has been looking into the proceeds from Al-Turki’s Albasheer Islamic bookstore in Aurora.
“This is very sad, but we Muslims basically after 9-11, have been profiled,” Al-Turki said. “And everything that is happening to us or every single Muslim in the community basically because we are guilty, no matter what.”
Al-Turki’s attorneys want to know more about an incident in Illinois last April.
Al-Turki was stopped by state police there on Interstate 80 near LaSalle. A message on the national crime information computer warned the officers “terrorist organization member-caution, do not alert this individual to this notice.
Al-Turki was only given a warning for having an “obstructed view.” His lawyers claim school documents in his car were copied and a 38-page fax was sent by the Illinois State Police to the FBI in Denver.
“Do you think this is happening to you because of your religion,” CBS4 asked.
“I am Saudi, I am a Muslim, and I think that’s an attraction to law enforcement by itself,” Al-Turki responded.
