Siraj Ibn Wahhaj – son of a controversial New York Imam – was arrested at a New Mexico compound where 11 malnourished children were found.
A very disturbing case in New Mexico has brought attention to the continued risk of Islamist extremism.
At what authorities are describing as an “extremist muslim” compound, 40-year-old Siraj Ibn Wahhaj was arrested after 11 children were found seriously malnourished and living in squalor.
Horrificaly, Wahhaj had reportedly been training the children to conduct school shootings, according to court documents.
Wahhaj is the son of Siraj Wahhaj. (same name) According to the New York Post, “Prosecutors named the elder Siraj Wahhaj — born Jeffrey Kearse — as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He also was a character witness in the trial of convicted terror plotter Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman.”
Others were also arrested:
“Siraj Wahhaj, 40; Lucas Morton, 40; Jany Leveille, 35; Hujrah Wahhaj, 38; and Subhanah Wahhaj, 35, were arrested and charged with 11 counts of felony child abuse for keeping the kids, ages 1 to 15, in squalid conditions at a compound made of garbage in the New Mexico desert.”
The owner of the property on which the compound was located said he had been warning authorities for months to take action:
Here’s what Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said about the horrific findings:
The sheriff said the children, ages 1 to 15, “looked like third world country refugees not only with no food or fresh water, but with no shoes, personal hygiene and basically dirty rags for clothing.”
The only food investigators found were some potatoes and a box of rice inside a dirty trailer, the sheriff said, adding that the living conditions were “the ugliest looking, filthiest” he’s ever seen.
Hogrefe previously said the occupants of the compound were “most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of the Muslim belief.”
Prosecutors have asked for Wahhaj to be held without bail.
Unsurprisingly, much of the corrupt establishment media has either downplayed, or ignored this story entirely, as often happens in cases when the threat of Islamist terror is again revealed.
