Mena Dyaha Yousif, a hijab wearing pious Muslim woman and her boyfriend have been charged with arson against several businesses and establishments in Minnesota during the riots that engulfed the US in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd by a White police officer. Mena Dyaha Yousif is said to be a Sharia-adherent Muslim and her involvement in fanning the US riots have given rise to doubts about the role of Islamist groups in taking advantage of the situation.
The act of Mena Dyaha Yousif and her boyfriend, Jose Felan, were revealed by the CCTV cameras at several places. Based on the investigation, the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is offering two rewards of up to $5,000 each for information on the whereabouts of Mena Dyaha Yousif and boyfriend. The two are absconding for a week now.
Saint Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell has said that “The decision made by some to terrorize our city through their dangerous and unlawful acts of arson was an affront to our community and those who were peacefully exercising their first amendment rights.”
While there are apprehensions over the involvement of Chinese elements in the riots, emerging proofs indicate the role of Islamic supremacists along with Leftist rioters in the violence in many US cities.
Molotov cocktail-throwing Muslim lawyer
Urooj Rahman, a Muslim lawyer in an interview before she was caught indulging in rioting had said, “This s–t won’t ever stop unless we f–kin’ take it all down.” Rahman is a attorney for Bronx Legal Services who is currently in police custody for tossing a Molotov cocktail at a NYPD cruiser during the recent riots in New York City. Jihadwatch says that she is also a committed activist for the Palestinian jihad, having published agitprop spreading false claims of Palestinian victimhood.
Jihadwatch reports that, in both her interviews during her attack, Rahman kept a Palestinian keffiyeh close to her face which indicates the usual tactics of Jihadists. The use of Molotov cocktail against the police cruiser is also a method of attack employed by Palestinian jihadis against the Israeli forces and Pak-sponsored arsonists against Indian Army in Kashmir.
The tactics and the kind of pious Muslims involved in the US riots give rise to doubts about the involvement of sponsored Islamist groups in the US riots. US Intelligence and the FBI are said to be investigating the role of external forces in the riots that has left 12 dead and more than hundred injured. The riots have also left several businesses and establishments ransacked with products worth crores being looted.
