If you ever go to Houston, you better walk right
Here is yet another example of a convert to Islam misunderstanding his peaceful religion and somehow getting the idea that Islam mandates violence against unbelievers. But we all know that that only greasy Islamophobes believe anything like that. Clearly, then, some Zionists have somewhere seized control of the instruction process for new converts to Islam, and are telling people like Kobie Diallo Williams, accused North Carolina jihadist Daniel Boyd, Long Island jihadist Bryant Vinas, Marin County Mujahid John Walker Lindh, Al-Qaeda’s Adam Gadahn and so many others that Islam calls upon them to wage war against Infidels.
This is a job for that intrepid civil rights group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. In fact, what could be a better job for them? After all, Kobie Diallo Williams (Abdul Kabir) is an American and a Muslim, and he is obviously not very successful in relating those two aspects of his identity. Calling Honest Ibe Hooper and Brave Ahmed Rehab! Expect CAIR to publish a press release condemning the actions of Kobie Diallo Williams, and announcing the development of a program for new converts to Islam, designed to steer them away from these all-too-common pitfalls, teaching them that Muslims and non-Muslims must co-exist peacefully as equals on an indefinite basis, explaining the value of the non-establishment clause, and showing them how and why they should be American patriots who abhor everything for which the Taliban stands.
Honest Ibe? Brave Ahmed? Anyone? Anyone?
“Houston Taliban supporter gets 4Â½ years in prison: He promises court that he will turn his life around,” by Mary Flood for the Houston Chronicle, August 7:
A former local college student, Kobie Diallo Williams, told a Houston federal judge Friday that while in solitary confinement for 33 months, he has reflected on his support of the Taliban and wants to apologize to his family, Muslims and the courts, promising a new focus when he is released.
Senior U.S. District Judge Ewing Werlein sentenced Williams to 4Â½ years in prison, most of which he already has served, and a $5,000 fine. Williams pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge in which he admitted to paramilitary training and donating money to the Taliban.
A former Rice University engineering technician who was enrolled at the University of Houston-Downtown in 2006 when he was charged, Williams, 36, said Friday that he will be more careful about choosing his friends. He will refocus on peaceful activities, he said, and he hopes to help Muslim youths who might be misguided like he was.
“I realize that what I said and did was very impulsive, reactive and uncalled for,” Williams told the judge, invoking God in his comments and quoting from the Bible.
Prosecutor Glenn Cook told the judge that every American has the right to peacefully disagree with the government. But, Cook said, Williams went too far by practicing paramilitary operations on camping trips in anticipation of fighting alongside the Taliban in Afghanistan and by contributing $350 to a group he understood would give the money to the Taliban, a terrorist organization.
Cook said Williams “crossed the line in practicing for a military jihad and supporting the Taliban.”…
John Floyd, William’s lawyer, said his client was incensed by the killing of civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq and fell in with the wrong crowd.
“As part of his rebirth into his religion, he strayed some,” said Floyd, who was there with a group of supporters from Williams’ family….
The government used two informants to build a case against Williams and the three other Muslim men after one of the informants told federal agents he was concerned that some of the men were preparing for armed conflict overseas. A 2005 camping trip in Willis was part of a government setup using the informants to catch the men.
Williams was charged along with Pakistani-born Adnan Mirza, a Houston Community College student at the time, who has pleaded not guilty to multiple gun, conspiracy and weapons charges. He is awaiting trial. The two other former students pleaded guilty to weapons charges and were sentenced to prison terms.
