Where did Alaa Mohd Abusaad learn her understanding of Islam? Has her mosque in Alabama been investigated? Why not? Would it be “Islamophobic” to do so? American authorities are betting the future of the United States on the assumption that Muslims here will, perhaps with one or two minor exceptions, assimilate, accept American values, and discard the aspects of Sharia that are incompatible with American law and Constitutional principles. This assumption is based on an ignorance of history, for as The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS shows, at no time and at no place in history have Muslims lived peacefully as equals with non-Muslims without some Muslims waging jihad and trying to impose Sharia. The assumption that it will be different for the U.S. is based on nothing in Islamic history or theology, and indeed, on nothing more than wishful thinking. Alaa Mohd Abusaad didn’t grow up in a vacuum. But American officials do not wish to ponder the implications of that.
“Former University of Alabama student pleads guilty to helping al Qaeda,” by Carol Robinson, Al.com, September 13, 2019:
A young woman accused of attempting to provide support and resources to terrorist organization al Qaeda has pleaded guilty to concealment of terrorism financing.
Alaa Mohd Abusaad, a former University of Alabama student, entered her guilty plea in federal court in Tuscaloosa on Friday, according to a joint announcement by Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C.

Abusaad, who was living in Tuscaloosa at the time of the crimes, was initially charged by federal authorities nearly one year ago. She was arrested in October 2018 in Ohio.
According to authorities, Abusaad instructed a female undercover FBI informant how to send money to the mujahedeen – fighters engaged in jihad – saying money was always needed. “You can’t have a war without weapons,’’ Abusaad told the informant. “You can’t prepare a soldier without equipment.”…
The communication between the two continued through at least April 2018, during which time authorities say Abusaad advised the informant on how to send money in a manner that would avoid detection by law enforcement, including by using fake names and addresses when conducting electronic money transfers. Subsequently, Abusaad introduced the informant to a financial facilitator who could route the informant’s money to “brothers that work with aq” (meaning al Qaeda)” the complaint stated.
In April 2018, the informant wired $50 through Western Union to Mustafa Yelatan in Turkey. After the transaction, records state, Abusaad told the informant, “And remember they can’t do anything to you. You were completely covered. May Allah protect you. And plus it’s a fake…Just be confident and don’t stress.”…
