After months of searching for Abdul-Ghani, the missing boy who was abducted by his father, Siraj Wahhaj, authorities raided a heavily armed compound in Amalia, New Mexico. They went in hoping to find Abdul-Ghani but discovered 11 malnourished children living in filth instead. With the neglected and abused children were their mothers, Siraj Wahhaj, and another man named Lucas Morton.
After the raid, police discovered the body of a three to four-year-old child they fear could be Abdul-Ghani, though the remains have yet to be identified. The children were being trained to commit acts of terrorism against Americans – specifically, to carry out school shootings. A foster parent of one of the children taken into protective custody told prosecutors the child admitted to being taught how to operate an AR-15 and was in training to become a school shooter.
All have been arrested and detained – Wahhaj without bail.
The Ugly Islamic Extreme
The compound, no more than a ramshackle border of tires and pallets around an earthen berm, had been on the radar of Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe and the local FBI for weeks and had even been surveilled by air. Although reports indicate the missing child was probably at the compound, federal agents didn’t believe they had enough probable cause for a raid.
But that changed when Hogrefe received an anonymous message from the compound: “We are starving and need food and water.”
Hogrefe acted immediately, stating “I absolutely knew that we couldn’t wait on another agency to step up and we had to go check this out as soon as possible.”
What They Found
Three women, Jany Leveille, Hujrah Wahhaj, and Subhannah Wahhaj, have been arrested and charged with neglect and child abuse of children who range in age from one to 15. These were their own children, subjected to a level of filth that Hogrefe described as “the ugliest looking, filthiest” environment with rags for clothes, no running water, and no visible signs of food.
The children, emaciated and malnourished, were given bottled water and snacks scrounged up by authorities while waiting for New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department to take them into protective custody.
The Wahhajs are the children of the controversial Brooklyn imam, Siraj Wahhaj, who heads the Masjid At-Taqwa in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Yes, that’s the same imam that was named by prosecutors as “an unindicted co-conspirator” in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and a character witness for convicted terror plotter Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman.
Both Lucas Morton and Siraj Wahhaj – the father of the missing boy and son of the imam of the same name – face neglect and abuse charges as well as kidnapping and harboring a fugitive – and now possibly a murder charge.
The appearance of 16 people in the small rural area of Amalia registered little to no alarm with the locals. According to Tyler Anderson, a mechanic in the area, they immediately purchased food and construction supplies and headed to strike camp.
“We just figured they were doing what we were doing, getting a piece of land and getting off the grid.”
The tract of land the Wahhaj compound occupies belongs to Jason Badger. Badger and his wife attempted to have the compound removed to the adjacent property, was owned by Lucas Morton. “I started to try and kick them off about three months ago and everything I tried to do kept getting knocked down.”
A Mother’s Nightmare
Abdul-Ghani was born with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy — a condition that can cause developmental delay, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, or cognitive impairment. He walks with a marked limp and sometimes wears leg braces for support.
His mother, Hakima Ramzi, told Georgia authorities that her soon to be ex-husband may have taken their son in order to perform ruqya on Abdul-Ghani: an Islamic version of exorcism targeting jinn. She refuses to believe that Wahhaj would harm his own son, although circumstances of emaciated and dehydrated children living in squalid conditions under his care – and now the discover of a child’s body – should cast a pall on that hope.
Sheriff Hogrefe has not given up the hope of finding Abdul-Ghani alive. “We did an extensive search for the missing child, our primary target. We certainly didn’t want to leave that place and leave a child behind and I’m confident we did not.”
“I need my son,” Ramzi said. “I have all intentions of going to New Mexico to look for my son.”
Sadly, that may not be necessary.
Stop the Madness
The tragedy of 9/11 might have been prevented had authorities paid attention to complaints about a group of middle eastern Muslims who enrolled in a Phoenix, Arizona flight school. Red flags flew in the face of apathy. In a time of critical division within this country, pop-up sects of dangerous Islamic extremists must be met without fear of reprisal from our own countrymen.
An Islamic extremist with cover from his father, a controversial and powerful Brooklyn Imam, is probably responsible for the death of his own son and was plotting the deaths of American school children in mass shooting with semi-automatic weapons.
Rise up, Americans, and demand that elected officials put the safety of this country above the publicity stunts of arguing for open borders, mass migration, and political correctness. Otherwise, the bloodshed that is sure to follow is on their hands.
Come what may for Ramzi and Abdul-Ghani, these five people should rot in a cell, deep in the ground, out of view of society and preferably in an Islamic practicing country. End them, and end this madness. This is not our America.
