Skip to comments.Cleveland Mosque Leader Could Soon Be Deported
Posted on 07/07/2005 2:17:45 PM PDT by 4.1O dana super trac pak
An Ohio mosque leader may be leaving the country earlier than expected.
NewsChannel5 learned that Imam Fawaz Damra's appeal was dropped in the Court of Appeals.
That means his citizenship remains revoked and the deportation process could begin soon. A judge revoked his citizenship in September 2004.
A jury convicted Damra last year for lying about connections to terrorist organizations on his application for U.S. Citizenship.
The 42-year-old spent two months in prison and four months under house arrest.
Damra is the leader of Ohio's largest mosque, the Islamic Center of Cleveland, in Parma.
So long A'hole.
And don't let the door.....
that's a good start now deport the other million or so muslims. And while your at it close the borders so they can't come back, or your wasting your time.
I prefer the ole helicopter sand dune drop vs. deportation. One is much more civil.
These mosques should be closed down immediately.
Now they need to check into the Mosque...they're in there...he ain't the only one hiding....
Goodbye terrorist bastard.
I hear they have some openings in the London mosque ... (sorry, couldn't resist, given the Gitmo transfer revelations)
As we advance into subsequent phases of WWII, we may change policies.
Sending an able bodied male enemy back to his lines, to regroup with his forces strikes me as insanity.
Keeping POWs is also not advisable, lest our media broadcast their pre-arranged (false) claims of abuse.
Hence, this person should be executed as an unlawful combatant."
While that sounds like good news, why do I have the continuing feeling that we're just playing "Bop the Gopher" with these people? They've so infiltrated our communities it should be alarming, though everyone's more concerned about being "PC."
When was his appeal dropped? Why is he still here? I wish the "reporters" would do more digging for their reports.
"WWII" should read WWIII.
Citizenship on loan only. Don't miss a payment.
That sounds allright.
"Whack-a-mullah": the updated version of Whack-a-mole.
"A judge revoked his citizenship in September 2004."
...And he is still in this country?
Shoot the mofo, then deport him.
In a just society, his head would be deported while his body would be allowed to remain to appeal.
Deport them all! Today's London attack reminds us of why we can't allow these parasites to live amongst us.
I just googled his name, no other important info.
NE Ohio pings!
How about yesterday?
Did you notice in your search whether or not the ACLU had anything to do with his defense? (I despise the ACLU as much as I do Al Qaeda.)
I wonder what God forsaken country they are going to send him to. Canada perhaps?
How 'bout we hand him his head and then send him packin'?
Nope, not from what I read.
What about the congregation? How long did they listen to him encourage war against America and treat his hate as holy?
Watch this spewing hatred bastard come back to bite us in the butt! I have a bad feeling about him. He should have been send off to Club Gitmo instead.... permanently!!
Return them to their jihadistans via vertical insertion. Allahu fubar!
Oh, don't be hasty... there's some more info out there. Mr. Damra has ties to Florida professor Sami al Arian :
Imam here is linked to terror suspect

Washington- Cleveland Islamic leader Fawaz Damra has been linked to a Florida man who was indicted yesterday as the leader of an alleged terrorist group responsi ble for more than 100 deaths in the Middle East.
A 50-count federal indict ment accuses Sami Amin Al- Arian, 45, a University of South Florida engineering professor, and seven other al leged Palestin ian Islamic Ji had members of criminal racketeering, money laundering, conspiring to kill and maim people abroad, extortion, visa fraud, perjury and other charges. The defendants all face life in prison if they're convicted.
"We will bring justice to the full network of terror," Attorney General John Ashcroft said as he unveiled the charges.
Oh thanks, I always have trouble with these clowns names - must have mistyped it.
The USA has played the part of a Fool, in allowing Muslims into the country ,so that we may be attacked from within.
The USA might has well prepare for what has happened in Britian who thought that they were pretty smart too.
And the question remains: would we have to worry about deporting these people if we didn't let them come here in the first place? There was a time in our history when we didn't let people in from these countries so why are we doing so now?
Isn't it time to figure out that if someone attends or is in any way involved with a mosque they should just be assumed to be a terrorist? Seems pretty simple to me, actually. Makes identification of potential terrorists pretty simple IMHO. Just set up a camera to record the comings and goings and voila, a list of terrorists!
He's also known as Imam Fawaz Damrah
...to the bottom of the Pacific.
Mr. Humeidan, was the arrest of CAIR's Randall Todd Ismail Royer part of this pattern? Was his guilty plea part of it? Since you evidently assume that Damra is not guilty, please explain also these facts, reported in the Plain Dealer last week (via Frontpage) :
Imam Fawaz Damra helped lay the groundwork for an organization that ultimately merged into al-Qaida in the late 1980s.
He was an unindicted co-conspirator of the terrorists who bombed the World Trade Center in 1993. And he passionately raised money for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which killed dozens of Jews in Israel during the 1990s. . . .
How much Damra knows is unclear, but he is directly linked to two of the largest terror-funding probes in the United States, and implicated by association in a third sprawling investigation. . . .
In the mid-1980s, he co- founded the Alkifah Refugee Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., part of a network that recruited and trained Muslims to fight against the Soviets in Afghanistan, a venture that dovetailed with U.S. government efforts in the region.
When the Soviets withdrew, however, there was an international fight over what to do with the leftover money and power.
Like many Alkifah centers around the world, the Brooklyn chapter was drawn into the al- Qaida network created by Osama bin Laden. The mosque itself fell under the sway of Omar Abdul Rahman, known as the "blind sheik," who was later blamed for the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
Damra, meanwhile, settled in Cleveland, where he reinvented himself as a peacemaker and spent more than a decade building tentative, then increasingly sturdy, bridges between local Muslims and Jews.
Nearly all of his efforts collapsed following the terror attacks of 2001, when a grainy videotape surfaced revealing another side of the charismatic cleric.
The 1991 video shows Damra at a Muslim gathering in Cleveland, disparaging Jews in Arabic as "pigs and monkeys" and raising money for the killing of Jews by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Maybe he isn't guilty. But it would be helpful to get a full explanation and clarification. Does he now reject Islamic radicalism? Does he want to see the U.S. someday become an Islamic state? These are the kinds of questions that must be answered.

Deporting this scum is good news, but it would be better news if our laws allowed for a good and thorough beating before deportation!
Well, if we shove a radio transponder up his butt, he'll be able to show us just where the enemy forces are grouping.
"Well, if we shove a radio transponder up his butt, he'll be able to show us just where the enemy forces are grouping."
I remember all the hype about caves and tunnels in Afghanistan, and being to read license plate numbers.
And about Osama's satellite phone. And about bunker buster bombs.
And three years later, we haven't got him. Better dead now, than playing some high-teckie chase games.
You are correct. Give him a Gitmo vacation for being such am islamic a$$hole and then throw him in the ocean so he can swim back, God willing, to the place he longs for in this world, or to the heaven full of all the islamic virgins nobody else would touch with a ten foot pole.
Virgins are not especially required to be attractive, you know,either physically, intellectually or socially. May all islamic terrorists to whom it may concern have many ugly, disagreable and diseased little maidens and mullahs and their usual other misters and the choice between disease and celibacy that they deserve.
The sad thing is that Bishop Pilla was kissing up to this little devil a few years ago. All that ROP crap.
DCI Goss has said that we know where UBL is. I can only conclude that we haven't put hands on him in order to create a "honeypot" to draw in other high-level terrorists and get clued in as to their plans.
