The man accused of helping attack a Muhammad drawing contest in Texas also planned to attack the Super Bowl, investigators said.

During a federal court hearing, FBI Special Agent Dina McCarthy said Kareem wanted to attack the Super Bowl in Phoenix in February.

“This is an individual who is apt to incite violence,” prosecutor Kristen Brook said. “This defendant, based on all these facts, is dangerous, he is off-the-charts dangerous.”

One of the gunmen behind the shooting at a Texas cartoon contest that featured images of Prophet Muhammad strongly hinted on Twitter that he was about to get violent about 20 minutes before opening fire, the Chicago Tribune reports. 

“May Allah accept us as mujahideen,” or holy warriors, he tweeted.

One of his hashtags read: “#texasattack.”

Federal authorities were tracking 31-year-old Elton Simpson’s Twitter account and even had an open investigation on him at the time.

Homeland Security and the FBI also issued bulletins to local law enforcement, warning that the cartoon contest in Garland was a possible terrorism target.

Simpson and his roommate, Nadir Soofi, were killed, but not before shooting a security guard in the leg.

 

FBI Informant Said He Was Encouraged to Have Sex with Muslim Women for Information

A married FBI informant who was spying on Muslims said the bureau instructed him to sleep with women  to get intelligence, The Huffington Post reports. 

Craig Monteilh, who was known as Farouk al-Aziz, was told to get “personal information” such as phone numbers, emails and friends in the Los Angeles area. He aid the FBI taught him to “pretend to be a Muslim.”

“The FBI paid me to infiltrate mosques in Los Angeles and Orange County in Southern California, as a very broad surveillance operation to give them the personal information of Muslims,” he said.

Monteilh said his $11,200 monthly compensation “clouded his judgment” as he had sex with Muslim women.

“I portrayed myself as a unmarried male, although I was married,” he said. “Within the Muslim community, they would help me to get a bride, so they would introduce me to single Muslim women. I would go out on dates and things like that. … [My FBI handlers] instructed me, if I was getting good intel, to allow it to go into sexual relations.”

The plan backfired when the Muslims he had befriended reported him to the FBI and filed a restraining order against him because of the jihadist rhetoric.

A Florida-based Muslim advocacy group is suing the FBI after an agent fatally shot Ibragim Todashev, a Chechen national who was friends with one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, The Boston Herald reports.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is suing for $30 million in the wrongful death lawsuit.

“We are seeking answers and justice for someone who was shot seven times by an FBI agent in his own home after hours of interrogation,” CAIR Florida Civil Rights Director Thania Diaz said in a statement. “A few key weaknesses in FBI practice are unfortunately highlighted all too well in this case.”

A spokesman for the FBI did not comment.

The FBI agent was not charged in the shooting because the Florida state attorney determined the shooting was self-defense.

DETROIT — The FBI has been asked to investigate the assault of two men in suburban Detroit who were stabbed after saying they weren’t Muslim, The Washington Times reports.

Terrence Lavaron Thomas, a Muslim, was charged Tuesday with unlawful intent and possession of a controlled substance following the stabbing at a bus stop in Southfield, a suburb of Detroit.

Southfield Police are asking the FBI to determine whether a hate crime was committed.

“The victims in this case said that the suspect asked them if they were Muslim,” said Southfield Police Chief Eric Hawkins. “They responded that they were not, and then there was some back-and-forth between the victims and the suspect.”

Thomas is accused of stabbing one of them three times in the back. Another man who tried to intervene was stabbed in the hand.

Police said the trio did not know each other.

He also was arrested twice in San Diego for soliciting.

The Daily Mail pointed out that reports placed some of the 9-11 hijackers at strip clubs for lap dances before the attacks.

At least a dozen officers swept into his Santa Clara home, their assault weapons and service guns drawn.

This wasn’t a drug bust. Police were looking for a stolen $300 dashboard camera that was never found.

The subject of the search, Homeland Security Agent Mohammed Moneeb, is accusing Santa Clara police of targeting him and using excessive force because he is Muslim, ABC7 News reports.

Police dismiss the claims, saying such a search isn’t unusual when a federal employee is accused of theft.

“This response was within our procedures in investigating law enforcement officers, especially in this case, being a federal law enforcement officer. We have the public trust in this case and we believe the public holds us to a higher standard and theft in this case is pretty serious,” Santa Clara Police Department’s Lt. Kurt Clarke said.

Federal authorities said an internal investigation is ongoing.

Moneeb said he was shocked by the police response.

“This has been a pretty traumatic experience for our family,” Moneeb said, who believes that the police were out of line.

The FBI arrested a 19-year-old man at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport as he was trying to leave the country to join Islamic State, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Mohammed Hamzah Khan was boarding a plane to Vienna, where he was going to catch a flight to Istansbul, according to the FBI complaint.
