An Oklahoma City MUSLIM man was charged with a felony after he admitted to sending a threatening letter containing a white powder meant to be mistaken for anthrax to the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma mosque. He also painted anti-CAIR and anti-Muslim slurs on a halal meat store and said the imam at that mosque told him to do it.
NewsOK Justin William Bouma, 32, a MUSLIM, (above) was charged in Oklahoma County District Court with the rarely filed felony count known as the crime of terrorist hoax. Bouma also was charged with one misdemeanor count of malicious injury and destruction of property.
Prosecutors allege Bouma sent the letter to the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City on June 1. The imam at the mosque, 3815 N St. Clair Ave., contacted the FBI after opening it. After testing the powder, the Oklahoma City Fire Department determined it was harmless. Police reported the powder was potassium perchlorate.
Bouma admitted to police on Aug. 18 he sent the “anthrax” letter to the mosque, police reported in a court affidavit. Bouma “purchased some cheap detergent and placed it in the envelope,” according to the affidavit. Police reported threats in the letter were cut out of a magazine and a newspaper.
On Aug. 11, OK Halal Meat & Grocery, a Muslim-owned store adjacent to the mosque, had anti-Muslim sentiments spray-painted on the back. Bouma admitted he painted the store but said the imam, Imad Enchassi, told him to do it, the affidavit states.
The graffiti referenced the Council on American- Islamic Relations, also known as CAIR. One statement said “CAIR not welcome.” Other remarks were crude and the terrorist group ISIS was mentioned.
Bouma reportedly attended the mosque. Bouma became a suspect after authorities discovered threatening emails he had sent to mosque members, police reported.
About the Imam: Besides being the senior Imam at ISGOC, the chairman of Islamic studies and Chaplain at Oklahoma City University, an adjunct professor of Islamic studies at both Phillips Theological Seminary and St. Paul School of Theology, advisory board member of CAIR, advisory board member of Wilbery School of Religion (Oklahoma City University). Among much recognition, Enchassi has received the Interfaith Alliance “Community Service Award,” and CAIR “Inspiration Award.”
From Creeping Sharia: This appears to be an elaborate, yet poorly executed, hoax by designated terrorist group CAIR. Perpetrated by a mosque member, at the behest of a CAIR imam, targeting a CAIR employee to make them look like targets, with a full blown PR campaign by CAIR OK, and then foisting another propaganda coup and dawah event having non-Muslims clean up the faked graffiti.
CAIR’s post terrorist plot PR campaign here:
Saad Mohammed (below), director of Islamic news and information for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, is also chairman of the board for CAIR-Oklahoma.
“I was personally targeted, I think because I’m the chairman of CAIR and I’m the director of news and information for the Islamic Society so who better to target,” he said. “One statement said ‘Saad is not welcome here.’”
Another statement said “CAIR not welcome here,”and the vandals also wrote messages directed at the Islamic Society. The vandalism also mentioned the terrorist group ISIS.
