On 2 June, 2016 a five-year old girl with special needs was playing outside her home at the Fawnbrook Apartments in Twin Falls, Idaho when she was taken by knife point to the shared laundry facilities on the premises by three boys from two refugee families, ages 13, 9, and 8 years old who sexually assaulted and urinated on her. The eight year old is also reported to have cut another young child’s arm with his knife a week before school was adjourned.
According to the victim’s mother, a trusted neighbor discovered her daughter with the three boys. Her clothes had been stripped off by the boys who were also naked and the 13 year old had a phone which allegedly held video of the incident. The mother and father of the victim promptly arrived on the scene after being alerted by the neighbor.
The video on the phone displayed the sexual assault of the five year old girl according to the father who viewed it, and reportedly shows the older boy coaching the younger ones during the assault and attempted rape of the little girl as well as urinating in her mouth and over her body as they pinned her against a wall.
The mother took the victim home immediately, stating she was going to call the police. Shortly after arriving home the mother of one of the attackers showed up at the victim’s home demanding in broken English, “No police, everything ok.”
The police were called and arrived on the scene two and a half hours later, at which point the cell phone was given to the local authorities. The mother of the victim has also reported receiving threats by two young men of Middle Eastern descent, who told her they will come after her if she pursues the police with this matter.
The Twin Falls Police Department finally made arrests of the two older boys on June 18, 2016. However, they have not placed a restraining order on the families involved even after the request was made by the girl’s family. Instead the perpetrators remain in the comfort of their own home and have been spotted running around the complex grounds.
In the meantime, the victim’s mother had to find a place where her daughter could be taken care of safely in the immediate aftermath of the trauma, but the family’s funds are limited and the little girl has to stay in the same apartment complex as all three of her attackers.
The police department and county Prosecutor, Grant Loebs, have not acted in a timely fashion to protect the victim and her family from the attack by the Muslim refugees or from intimidation and harassment received from the refugee community in the aftermath.
Twin Falls, Idaho is a hot spot for refugees, and the College of Southern Idaho (CSI) is the only refugee resettlement agency bringing them to the Magic Valley Region. Approximately 300 refugees were placed in fiscal year 2015, and more recent arrivals have included large numbers of individuals from Iraq, Congo, Burma, Bhutan, Afghanistan, and Somalia. Since 1984, 5,000 refugees from Iraq and Iran have been settled there.
According to Julie Ruf, a local leader and concerned citizen, there have been up to 200 local residents who have voiced concerns over the program for over a year to their City Council, Police department, and the CSI trustee board. They have received scorn instead of answers to their numerous questions and concerns regarding the refugees like: the welfare costs involved, the increased tax burden on local residents, healthcare, educational, and last but not least issues of national security and public safety concerns related to these individuals being settled in their city.
The local internet news source, Magic Valley, has published names of concerned citizens who dared question the program and tried to belittle them. If the MagicValley.com news site would print the facts of the Refugee Resettlement Program instead, they may have additional citizens concerned about the settling of Muslim refugees who adhere to Sharia Law within their communities. Incidentally, the mother of the boys involved in the assault wears a full burka in a display of adherence to the Sharia.
Muslim law states a woman’s life is worth half of a man’s, a husband may beat his wife, men are superior to women in intelligence and religion, and they can also be stoned for adultery. (See: Sharia Law for Non-Muslims by Dr. Bill Warner, Chapter 3) These families who are being settled by the tens of thousands and soon to be hundreds of thousands in our country have lived with the common sexual assault of Muslim and non-Muslim women and the lack of negative consequences for those actions.
According to a Magicvalley.com article,
“CSI’s president. Jeff Fox, stated the following last June about the program when opinions from legislators were sent to him out of concerns they were hearing from their constituents.
“There is nothing to hide or fear about the Refugee Center’s operations. There is a long and successful track record.”
There may have been a glowing track record before the Federal refugee program started admitting Sunni Muslim refugees into America from warring Islamic countries, but now there plenty of stories where they don’t assimilate into western culture.
Take into account the skyrocketing sexual assaults happening all over Europe where ever Muslim majority immigrants/refugees have settled. Sweden, for example, is now the rape capital of the West trailing only North Africa. They have a 2% Muslim male population with 77% Muslims perpetrating the reported rapes. It is doubtful Magic Valley news or the CSI pays any attention to those details.
Rep. Maxine Bell, for instance had this to say about concerns being raised about the CSI program,
“The history of incoming refugees goes back a long way. We should be a haven for people to express their own religion and freedoms.”
She continued about concerns from those in the community,
“I’m troubled that they would be concerned, I assume it’s part of a concern about the people in the areas where Sharia law is and where things are different. I hope that CSI is able to put that to rest with people who are really, really concerned.”
Do you think Rep. Bell believes the Muslim refugee boys who sexually assaulted a girl by knife point have a right to practice those freedoms now? Wonder if she would like male refugees with little to no respect for women settled in the same community as her family members or granddaughters? Realistically, however, our legislators are far too wealthy and privileged to live in the same vicinity as the refugees they bring into lower income communities.
Rep. Maxine Bell and all the other legislators who stand by and do nothing but parrot how impressed they are with the refugee program at CSI should be required to take a course in the doctrine of Sharia Law as well as the political ideology espoused by Muslims. Why is it that many regular citizens of this country are more educated on the facts and the dangers of Islam and their elected officials choose to remain ignorant of them?
Most legislators are silent about a program that not only resettles refugees who are in opposition to our Constitution, but is a threat to our personal safety and those of our families. These elected leaders place themselves in dereliction of their duty and should resign if they are not advocating for the safety of their constituents, not the least of which are five year old girls. But, they are far too concerned about the money involved in settling the refugees.
For example the Chobani yogurt factory, owned by the wealthy Muslim immigrant, Hamdi Ulukaya, from Turkey. According to a WND article, he wants to give corporate cash, lobbying initiatives, services and jobs to refugees. Thirty percent of his workforce is dependent on refugees being shipped to him from the Middle East and Africa. Sexual assaults and rapes surely should not get in the way of big business.
Just like this horrific assault to the body, innocence, and future of this five year old child happened because of a program championed by the College of Southern Idaho. Their naive belief that refugees from warring Islamic countries can be “vetted” and brought to live among American citizens without causing countless negative and traumatic consequences is incredulous.
The prime responsibility for this incident lies with President Obama, Congress, the State Department, and all agencies who willingly resettle Muslim refugees into America. From the president who has denied his oath of office by continuing a dangerous refugee program, the State Department whose job is to support Americans interest abroad, but ushers in the very enemies of our Constitution and threats to our national security and personal safety, our Congress who voted to fund the refugee program, and finally volunteer agencies who take money per head, funded by the American tax-payer, in order to place unvetted individuals among Americans.
This story reveals how Muslim refugees never can be totally vetted and there is no way of assessing the violence they will commit due to their ideology and culture. Yet, the Twin Falls local government continues to disregard the local citizens well-founded questions about the refugee program and the federal government continues to accelerate it, damn the consequences.
