The Truth About Those “HORRIFYING Plans For Americans”
Despite the sensational headlines, the actual stories did not mention any actual plot or plan, much less “HORRIFYING plans for Americans“. But most people don’t even bother to read past the headlines before they share the #fakenews with their family and friends. Reading is for losers and liberal pussies, don’t you know?
But for those who really want to know what really happened, let’s break it down for you…
There Was No Raid, Period
Lee Williams of the Herald Tribune contacted the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office to find out. A senior official there confirmed that there had been no raid of any mosque by the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office or the FBI.
There Were No Weapons Training Of Any Kind
The stories claimed that CAIR official (who is also a Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy, and a Muslim) Nezar Hamze, had been going to mosques to teach Muslims how to properly use guns and get security surveillance system grants from the US government.
However, the actual training did not involve any actual firearms. In fact, this photo of Nezar Hamze shared in these stories show him brandishing fake blue semi-automatic pistols. How horrifying!
Finally, the Deputy Hamze was teaching those who attended his course what to do if an active shooter entered the mosque – basic “run, hide or fight” stuff, as Lee Williams pointed out.
Who Was The Man They Arrested Then?
Every one of those stories used a picture that showed US marshals arresting a Muslim-looking man. But guess what – that picture was take more than 12 years ago, and has nothing to do with any plot against Americans.
That is a picture of Mohammed Mosharref Hossain, taken on August 5, 2004, just outside the Leo O’Brien Federal building in Albany, New York.
He was arrested together with Yassin Muhhiddin Aref, and charged with a plot to buy a shoulder-launched missile that would be used to kill the Pakistani ambassador in New York City.
They were both convicted of conspiring to aid a terrorist group, supporting a foreign terrorist organization, and money-laundering on October 1, 2005 and sentenced to 15 years in jail.
