Dept. of Homeland Security Classifies Harrisburg Shooting as Act of Terror
“No doubt” that gunman was targeting police.
A man named Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty engaged in gunfire with police at more than one location in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on Friday night. The Department of Homeland Security has now classified the incident as a terror attack.
This is also apparently another case of someone who entered the country through chain migration.
Elizabeth Zwirz reports at FOX News:
Homeland Security says chain migration let terrorism-related suspects into U.S.
The Department of Homeland Security said chain migration is the common element in two cases allegedly tied to terrorism activities, according to a statement released Saturday.
In the statement on Twitter, Acting Press Secretary Tyler Houlton said DHS “can confirm the suspect involved in a terror attack in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and another suspect arrested on terror-related money laundering charges were both beneficiaries of extended family chain migration.”

Chain migration is when an immigrant gains legal entry into the U.S. via sponsorship by a family member who’s already a legal resident or citizen. The Trump administration launched a campaign against the immigration system, in favor of a more merit-based structure, favoring education and job potential as factors.
The memo referred to Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty, 51, who it said was a naturalized U.S. citizen admitted to the U.S. from Egypt on a family-based visa. El-Mofty went on a shooting spree Friday in Harrisburg and was reportedly targeting police officers.
The gunman, carrying two rifles and a shotgun, fired at officers in multiple locations.
“He fired several shots at a Capitol police officer and at a Pennsylvania state police trooper in marked vehicles,” Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico said. The state trooper was injured but is “doing well,” he said.

DA: “No doubt” that Harrisburg gunman was targeting police
There’s “no doubt” a gunman who fired at police in several locations in the state capital, wounding one of them before they shot and killed him, was targeting police officers, a prosecutor said.
Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty fired at a Harrisburg police officer on Friday afternoon and later at a state trooper, wounding and then pursuing her, Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico said.
“He fired several shots at a Capitol police officer and at a Pennsylvania state police trooper in marked vehicles,” Mr. Marsico told reporters, flanked by state police, Capitol police and FBI officials.
The gunfire began shortly after 4 p.m. Friday, when the man fired several shots at a state Capitol officer in downtown Harrisburg, striking his car several times and sending one shot “that went very close to hitting him,” Mr. Marsico said. About 20 or 30 minutes later, he fired several shots at the state trooper, striking her with one of those shots.
The trooper is “doing well,” is in good condition and is expected to make a full recovery, Mr. Marsico said.
It’s sad and maddening when such things happen, but especially during the holiday season.

Eurabia already exists and thanks to 0bama we were well on our way to Amerabia.
As to people saying that 0bama was NOT a Muslim – how would he have behaved differently if he were ?????
That’s dead easy. If he were Moslem he would not eat pork, he would not drink beer, wine, martinis, etc., he would not pay lip service to Christianity as he does, e.g. by saying that Jesus died for his sins, he would not have held sedarim in the White House, or set foot in Christian churches, and above all he would not have promoted and bolstered the the Shi’ite infidels as he did.
Shi’ites aren’t Muslims? Says who?
Says every Sunni, which he would certainly be if he were Moslem.
Taqqiya is permitted only when it’s necessary to avoid persecution or to achieve a military mission, etc. Pretty much every religion has much the same rule. There’s no reason why a Moslem 0bama would have to behave and speak as he does, no compulsion that could justify it to his own conscience, let alone to other Moslems. For instance there is no need for a president to drink; neither 0bama’s predecessor nor his successor do. Therefore were he Moslem he would not drink either.
Exactly. Therefore not a Moslem. Nor even the Christian he claims to be. There’s really nothing in his background that would bring him either to Islam or Christianity. He was raised by communists, so it’s no surprise that the only god he recognizes is himself.
” Shi’ites aren’t Muslims? Says who?
Says every Sunni, which he would certainly be if he were Moslem.”
First of all, not true.
“(1) Whosoever is an adherent to one of the four Sunni schools (Mathahib) of Islamic jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i and Hanbali), the two Shi’i schools of Islamic jurisprudence (Ja`fari and Zaydi), the Ibadi school of Islamic jurisprudence and the Thahiri school of Islamic jurisprudence, is a Muslim…”
This is just one of several agreements between Sunni and Shia confirming that they DO NOT consider each other infidels or apostates. They agree; they’re all Muslims.
Second, Shiites and Sunnis cooperate all the time. This should be glaringly obvious to anyone even halfway informed about Israel’s security situation. The fact that Hamas is a Sunni terrorist organization doesn’t prevent Shia Iran from providing them with arms and other aid. And the fact that Iran is a majority Shia country run by Shiite Mullahs doesn’t stop Hamas from accepting the aid.
Iran provided AQ with considerable aid and support. Such as providing family members of the top AQ officials with safe haven. In fact, family members established in federal court that Iran was involved in providing aid and support when AQ committed the atrocity of 9/11.
“NEW YORK – A federal judge has signed a default judgment finding Iran, the Taliban and al Qaeda liable in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Judge George Daniels in Manhattan signed the judgment Thursday, a week after hearing testimony in the 10-year-old case. The signed ruling, which he promised last week, came in a $100 billion lawsuit brought by family members of victims of the attacks. He directed a magistrate judge to preside over remaining issues, including fixing compensatory and punitive damages.
Daniels signed findings of fact saying the plaintiffs had established that the 2001 attacks were caused by the support the defendants provided to al Qaeda. The findings also said Iran continues to provide material support and resources to al Qaeda by providing a safe haven for al Qaeda leadership and rank-and-file al Qaeda members…”
Most people have not idea of how Islam justifies all forms of lying as well as making alliances with “infidels” if that is what it takes to advance the cause of Islam. The Iranian revolution was pulled off by an alliance between two groups. Religious Shiites and the godless communists. Of course, both sides expected to eliminate their allies when they had overthrown the Shah. The Shiites got the job done first.
” ‘Look up taqqiya and educate yourself.’
Taqqiya is permitted only when it’s necessary to avoid persecution or to achieve a military mission, etc. ”
Any educated Muslim, such as a Sheikh, Shiite Imam (in Sunni Islam an Imam is nothing more than a prayer leader, but a lot more than that Shia Islam), or a cleric who tells you this is lying. And they can do so for a wide range of reasons. Almost any reason.
This is for several reasons. Islam has a much broader definition of what constitutes a military mission, an attack on the ummah, or persecution.
“And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.”
What is fitnah? Spreading strife or discord. Essentially, unbelief. Simply being governed by non-Muslims is per Islam an intolerable from of oppression. It’s why so many terror suspects and, in the UK, rapists refuse to stand for the judge when they are tried, will turn their backs on the judge, and otherwise deliberately disrespect them. Because they refuse to accept their lawful authority. Islam makes it clear; non-Muslims are not allowed to wield authority over Muslims.
Look up the 1066 Granada massacre. The ruler had appointed a Jew named Joseph ibn Naghralla as his vizier. This outraged the Muslim population because by doing so the ruler had put a Jew in authority over them. And again, the Islamic sources make it clear; no non-Muslim can exercise authority over Muslims. So the Muslims didn’t just kill ibn Naghralla. They killed thousands of Jews; every Jew they could find. Because by accepting the position of vizier, ibn Naghralla had broken the dhimma and all Jews were collectively guilty.
Fitnah is worse than killing. They were spreading unbelief and that is persecution.
Also, taqqiya, isn’t the only form of lying permitted by Islam. There’s tauriyya, which is basically doublespeak. Muslims are permitted to gut words of their meanings and assign their own secret meaning to them. They don’t even consider this lying but it would be perjury in any Western court of law. So you’re both using the same words, but the Muslim doesn’t mean what you think it means. There’s also kitman, which is lying by omission.
Functionally it’s identical to Taqqiya. Which is why educated Muslims will simply lie shamelessly for all kinds of reasons including Dawa or proselytizing. If a Muslim proselytizer thinks he can get you to join Islam, and he doesn’t think you know much about Islam, he’ll say anything and it’s not a sin in Allah’s eyes. Again, whoever told you that taqqiya is only for a few limited purposes was either uninformed or lying. You see it all the time on TV. They’ll deny verses that put Islam in a bad light to a Western audience are in the Quran at all when they clearly are. They’ll fall back on a second lie, “if you don’t read Arabic you can’t understand the Quran” if you cite the chapter and verse. This is evidenced by the fact groups like CAIR a) hand out English language Qurans for purposes of Dawa and b) their Qurans are just as much a translation as any other because they’re always the 1924 Cairo edition written in modern Arabic and not 7th century classical Arabic (I’ve never met an Arabic speaker who claims to read the Arabic Quran who can read any early Quran; it’s like claiming you can read Chaucer just because you speak and read modern English) and c) we’re capable of doing very accurate transliterations from Arabic to English with documents such as contracts.
There’s also Muruna, which is “setting aside.” So of course Obama could eat pork and drink alchohol and still be a good Muslim. Because what are Muslims permitted to “set aside?” Sharia. The 9/11 hijackers did exactly that the night before their attack, going out for a night of drinking and lap dances. In fact, we’ve captured Islamic State manuals for those they infiltrate into Western nations to commit attacks. They tell these terrorists not to go to the mosque or carry a Quran. If their passport or other travel documents support the ruse they should consider carrying a Bible, wearing a crucifix, and going to church. If they can’t pull that off because their documents identify them as obviously Muslim they should just pretend to be entirely secular, westernized Muslims. And shave off their beards, maybe hit the bars now and then.
Collectively all forms of lying permitted by Islam are called “outwittings.” They consider it good strategy.
Was Obama a Muslim? Yes, according to Islamic law. His father was a Muslim, so that makes him a Muslim. He was registered at his school in Indonesia as a Muslim. We know this because he wrote (or his ghostwriter wrote) that he got in trouble for clowning around in Quran class. Only students who were registered as a Muslim had Quran class.
Do I think he thought he was a Muslim as an adult? Not for a second, but millions of Muslims would consider him an apostate Muslim. But I also know he was no Christian. His only religion was Barack Obama.
But don’t kid yourself. Just because someone doesn’t live like a Muslim, doesn’t go to the Mosque, eats pork and drinks alcohol doesn’t mean he’s not a Muslim. If it advances the cause of Islam he’s permitted to practice all forms of lying; the above is not, I believe, a comprehensive list of “outwittings.”
Look up taqqiya and educate yourself.
Traitor Barack is a pathetic, incompetent and corrupt opportunist and a pathological liar.
He’d eat anything if it was free, especially circumcised you-know-what.
These same people also said obama was not a traitor.
He isn’t, technically. Morally, he’s even worse than a traitor, and I think if the framers had anticipated that someone like him could exist they would have broadened the definition of treason to include him. But their imagination wasn’t up to the task.
The US has doubled the number of muslims in the population since 2001.
GW Bush had the wind to his back and could have locked immigration down with a Republican Congress back then, but did nothing.
Not true at all. Bush did do something. Quadruple the number of Muslims allowed in so as to show the American public how peaceful they are.
Note that “an act of terror” is now the term used when what they mean is “motivated by radical Islam.”
True enough, but more and more have their own copy of Govt B/S to English code book. They know, they know, that Muslims, following the rules of their Qur’an, are the cause of so many of these problems.
Read Robert Spencer of JihadWatch. He’s on the mark 100% of the time.
True, but at least they are calling it terrorism now. Baby steps here folks.
True. But I don’t think it’s necessary to modify Islam by putting another word in front of it. “Motivated by Islam” will do nicely.
“The Department of Homeland Security has now classified the incident as a terror attack.”
As if that agency is any less absurd than its name.
