Trinidad and Tobago Islamic Front To Govt: "Identify 182 Suspected of Financing Terrorism"

A call has been made for Government to name the 182 Trinidad and Tobago citizens who are suspected of financing terrorist activity in 2016.

Head of the Waajihatul Islaamiyyah (The Islamic Front) Umar Abdullah said the group “holds a different view” from that of the present administration as regards the 182 suspected nationals whom the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) had said were involved in terrorism and in particular the 69 who are suspected of financing terrorism.

Last Thursday, Government Minister Stuart Young said the FIU received 739 suspicious transaction reports (STRs) and suspicious activity reports (SARs) which is a 21.3 per cent increase from the previous year.

Bank transactions

Young said of the 739 suspicious transactions, 760 were related to money laundering while 69 were related to the financing of terrorism.

And there were 739 suspicious financial transactions in 2016 from banks, private members clubs and other money value transfer services (such as real estate, etc) amounting to $805.5 million.

These were some of the highlights of the 2015/2016 Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) report. Young also noted that over the 2015 to 2016 period there were certain growing trends—one was the emergence of wire transfers to jurisdictions suspected of involvement in human trafficking.

Abdullah, in a release, stated yesterday this information revealed by Young raises the question of Government's “motives” and how are they going to treat with this information.

“I am challenging the Government to produce the list of the 182 suspected nationals along with the names of the 69 who are suspected of financing terrorism.

“It appears as though this present administration is allowing itself to be drawn into a war with its own citizen much to their own disadvantage and at the expense and peril of the ordinary man on the streets,” he stated.

Foreign interference

He questioned further, in the Islamic Front's view, that the Government was allowing other countries to define who “we are as a people and why are they allowing other jurisdictions to define our laws”.

“What we have existing here in this country is an anti-reggae hip pop gangster culture mentality and common criminals. If this present Government under the stewardship of the Honourable Dr Keith Rowley wants to talk terrorism; we must first level the playing field. Let us start by calling those who define us by their rightful names,” he stated.

He pointed out that in 2015 at an international conference in Malaysia; America's “so-called war on terror was labelled a front to profligate American global hegemony and create a new world order.

“Those in attendance were told the US global war on terrorism was used to enact anti-terrorism laws that demonise Muslims in the Western world and to create Islamophobia.”

Abdullah added that in 2004 the United Nations Secretary General, Kofi Annan, declared explicitly that the US-led war on Iraq was illegal.

“This being the case what then was it? Was it an act of terrorism and if it was why then was PFC Le Ron Wilson, who was killed in that illegal war, honoured by attaching his name to Marli Street, Port of Spain, in his memory?

“According to our Government, wouldn't PFC Le Ron Wilson be classified a terrorist? His name should be removed,” he stated.

Muslims, he stated, have been taught by the Qur'an and the Prophet to help and assist their brothers and sisters in oppressive situations.

America, he stated, has campaigned and vowed to remove the Assad regime in Syria.

“Muslims who have gone and are continuing to go and those who have sent aid to those in need are indeed fighting against and supporting the removal of the Assad regime.

“Wouldn't this then be considered an act of goodwill and support?” he stated.

Abdullah added the Israeli government, which is often criticised for its atrocities and oppressive nature, receives about US$3 billion in direct foreign assistance each year from America, and further to this the US has finalised a $38 billion package of military aid for Israel over the next 10 years.

“If that's not funding terrorism I don't know what is. It's about time our duly elected Government starts calling America and Israel by their rightful names and begin doing their homework and investigate properly information coming to them from America,” he stated.

“They need to start standing up and protect its citizens and speak out on global issues that affect its people. Once again, I am calling on the Government to produce the list of the 182 suspected nationals along with the names of the 69 who are suspected of financing terrorism.

“We'll be damned to sit here and allow others to interfere with our religious rights and freedom; in a country where every creed and race should find and equal place,” stated Abdullah.

Now, let's see if we understand the Shit-Head Umar Abdullah correctly.

He has a problem with the Government announcing that the Financial Intelligence Unit in the Ministry of Finance has reported that 182 Trinidad and Tobago nationals are suspected of being involved in terrorism with 69 of them suspected of financing terrorist activities. He challenges the Government to name the 182 suspected nationals and in particular the 69 financiers.

All well and good so far. But he goes on to say,
"It appears as though this present administration is allowing itself to be drawn into a war with its own citizens much to their own disadvantage and at the expense and peril of the ordinary man on the streets. We'll be damned to sit here and allow others to interfere with our religious rights and freedom in a country where every creed and race should find and equal place.”

We view the Shit-Head's words, "war with its own citizens at the expense and peril of the ordinary man on the streets" as an open threat to the Government and people of this country. Not surprisingly, the Rowley led Government has failed to respond or react to the threat with the severity it deserves or with any degree of seriousness, instead seeking to appease the "Shit-Head" by assuring him that

Needless to say, we expect nothing better from the PNM; they persist in their ignorance and folly of not recognizing and understanding the dangers posed to the country's national security and our non Muslim/Christian population by supporters of radical Islam. "Shit Head" Abdullagh is one such self acknowledged supporter who in typical bullying radical Islamic style is attempting to create an issue where there is none to justify aggression and violence under the pretext of defending Islam.

But this bullying behaviour is all part of an age old strategy by practitioners of radical Islam the world over; they need hostilities because they believe that the only way Muslim men can get to Paradise to enjoy the 77 virgins promised in the Koran is to die while fighting and killing, ostensibly in God's name.

One wonders what Muslim women enjoy if they go to heaven ...would it be 77 uncircumcised non Muslim male studs?

That is why followers of 'shit-heads' like Umar Abdullah keep pushing and pushing for various concessions and accommodations that get increasingly bolder and more outrageous from governments and other religious bodies, making demands of them that they (Muslims) would themselves not entertain from or reciprocate to other faiths. And when they get a negative reaction to their demands they use that negative reaction as the reason to start what they would term a holy way (jihad) in defense of Islam.

For example, Muslim parents in Trinidad have gone to court to demand that their children be allowed to attend Christian schools and not be subject to the schools' regulations and uniforms and that special accommodation be made for them to say their Muslim prayers while in the Christian school. The courts ruled in their favour without objection from or appeal by the PNM governments of Patrick Manning and before him George Chambers. Had the Court judgment not been in their favour there would have been a hue and cry about "Muslims being oppressed".

Now female Muslim police officers have begun to agitate to wear the hijab and not wear the standard police service uniform. If that demand is granted it would only be a matter of time before it is followed by another for a more outrageous concession, that they be be allowed to wear the Niqab, totally concealing their identities. And this weak-willed PNM government would more than likely give in to these bullying Islamic demands little by little until we realize one day that our Society has been islamicized, with bullies like "Shit-Head" Abdullah calling the shots in our so called secular State.

It is time that the non Muslim population of Trinidad and Tobago stand up and put a stop to this gradual islamisation of our country because this Rowley led PNM Government, like others before it, is simply to damned weak to do it.

Bullies are the same wherever they operate. They understand and respect only one thing: the strength of a bigger and "badder" opponent.



    Governments in the region consider Islamic terrorism to be a foreign problem, the report says, and intelligence agencies are ill equipped to handle the threat they represent.

    “The ignorance involving the threat of jihadist terrorism in Latin America has been such that some governments have refused to cooperate with US authorities and other intelligence services,” the assessment reveals.

    1. Not only in Latin America but right here in the Caribbean. The current Government of Trinidad and Tobago to be specific, is either alarmingly ignorant or phenomenally stupid when it comes to the threat posed by jihadist terrorism. ISIS has an established presence in Trinidad and Tobago yet the Government is quite willing to allow their butchers back into the country.
