Seems some law enforcement agencies in the state of Florida are succumbing to Islamophila. What started out as a good gesture for community relations with its police department in Temple Terrace FL, turned into a photo op for a convicted terrorist and members of organizations that support him. The question is, did Chief Kenneth Albano know who the majority of the attendees of “Coffee with a Cop” were?
It is important to note it is not always controllable who will attend functions presented by local police, but it also is important that police recognize who they are forever memorialized in pictures with. In this picture, Chief Albano is with Hatem Fariz,(left) who was convicted and served prison time for “Conspiracy to make and receive contributions of funds, goods or services to or for the benefit of specially designated terrorists” The terrorist organization was the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).
Hatem Fariz was also convicted and sentenced to prison on welfare fraud he committed while owner and operator of a convenient store in Illinois. The most troubling part of Fariz though, is his relationship with Sami al Arian, a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad,who after serving prison time, was deported to Turkey in Feb 2015.
According to the Council on Foreign Relations, The Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) is “an Islamic, Palestinian nationalist organization that violently opposes the existence of Israel. Designated as a U.S. State Department terrorist organization in 1997, the PIJ targets Israeli civilian and military personnel in its commitment to the creation of an Islamic regime in all of historic Palestine.” The sole purpose of the PIJ is to to destroy Israel and reestablish an Islamic State.
Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) are both off shoots of the Muslim Brotherhood, which may explain Fariz’s relationship with Hassan Shibly, the executive director of CAIR in the Tampa FL area. Shibly, while trying to convince everyone he is a patriotic American, has pursued many lawsuits against law enforcement, even promoting a “don’t snitch” to the FBI campaign years ago.
Also pictured with Fariz is Hatem Bazian, a staunch supporter of the Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement against Israel, as well as the founder of the Students for Justice in Palestine, an aggressive, anti Jewish student group on several university campuses across America.
As if Fazir’s relationships with terror organization leaders weren’t enough, Fazir is the managing director of the Islamic Community of Tampa, also known as Masjid al Qassam, a mosque which is owned and operated by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) the Muslim Brotherhood.
While we recognize Fazir did his time for his role in funding terrorists, we also recognize his penchant for associating with the same thugs. As for Chief Albano, one can only hope he hasn’t become a pawn for the Muslim Brotherhood who clearly seek to infiltrate American law enforcement.
Remember, when you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.
