Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the son of an unindicted co-conspirator, Siraj Wahhab linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, who was arrested in New Mexico on charges of keeping 11 starving children in a filthy compound. According to court documents filed by prosecutors, Wahhaj was training the children to carry out school shootings.
Breitbart Prosecutors asked the judge to hold Wahhaj without bond for felony child abuse. He is also the subject of an extradition warrant from Georgia on charges of kidnapping his own son from the state in December. His son was not among the starving children rescued from the compound. There are fears the remains of an as-yet unidentified child found at the compound could be Wahhaj’s son.
Prosecutors said on Wednesday that Wahhaj and four accomplices possessed an AR-15 rifle and four pistols with ample ammunition and were training the children to commit school shootings.
Dana Loesch (below) connects the dots the media won’t about Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the leader of the New Mexico compound linked to “extremist Muslims” training children to commit school shootings. He’s the son of Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, who just happens to be sharia-queen Linda Sarsour’s mentor. Sarsour has threatened jihad against Donald Trump.
Sirhaj Wahhaj, the father, served as a character witness in the trial of mastermind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, also known as the “Blind Sheikh.”
Most BNI readers will recognize Sirhaj Wahhaj as I have often posted his advice to Muslims running for office in America:
The New York Post reported on Monday that the elder Wahhaj is currently the head of the Majid at-Taqwa mosque in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The other defendants in the compound case are the younger Siraj Wahhaj’s wife, his two sisters, and his brother-in-law.
The Post quoted a January Facebook post from the elder Wahhaj that implied his son, the other co-conspirators, and a total of 12 of his grandchildren had gone missing and were “traveling together.”
The 11 living children rescued from the compound, plus the child’s remains that were recovered, would add up to 12 kids. The missing boy, named Abdul-Ghani, was 3 years old at the time his mother said her husband Siraj Wahhaj abducted him from Georgia; Monday marked his fourth birthday.
The boy’s mother, Hakima Ramzi, clarified on Tuesday that the procedure her husband wanted to perform on the boy was an Islamic prayer ritual called “ruqya” that was intended to purge her son of illness. “It’s not an exorcism. That was a translation issue in the court,” she said, insisting Wahhaj “just wanted to pray for Abdul-Ghani to get better.”
Police raided the compound when someone, presumably one of the children, was able to send a message saying, “We are starving and need food and water.” The compound in New Mexico was a partially-buried recreational vehicle surrounded by a wall of tires and a mound of garbage.
The local sheriff said the children were clad in rags and “looked like Third World country refugees.” He said their living conditions were the “ugliest looking” and “filthiest” he had ever seen. The property reportedly had no clean water, no hygienic products, and no food except “a few potatoes and a box of rice.”
The sheriff described the occupants of the compound as “heavily armed and considered extremists of the Muslim belief,” although few details about their specific beliefs have been released to the public, beyond the situation Hakima Ramzi described with respect to her son.
