For years I have warned of the dangers of “Diversity Visa” program. The Diversity Visa Lottery gives out 50,000 visas every year to foreign nationals from a multitude of countries, including those with known terrorist problems – such as Afghanistan, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Venezuela, Yemen, and Uzbekistan.
In my 2010 book on President Obama, The Post American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America, I wrote:
How long do you think you will remain safe while Obama ignores the jihad threat, and meanwhile triples the number of “diversity” visas and “religious” visas from the fiercest jihad hotspots in the world: Somalia, Gaza, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and more?
One thing is certain: Obama’s appeasement of the Islamic jihad both internationally and inside America will bear fruit. Bitter fruit.
And it almost bore fruit in his own assassination. Yet still the left pursues these programs indefatigably, without the slightest concern for the well-being of the American people.
“Diversity Visa Lottery Winner Offered to Kill Obama for ISIS,” by Terence P. Jeffrey, CNS News, January 17, 2018:
Abdurasul Hasanovich Juraboev was both lucky and evil.
His luck was demonstrated when he won admission to the United States through the diversity visa lottery; his evilness, by his stated willingness to assassinate the president of the United States or commit a terrorist attack in New York City — if he could not travel to Syria to join the Islamic State, and if that is what the Islamic State ordered him to do.
When Juraboev was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Oct. 27, 2017, New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill summarized his case in a statement released by the U.S. Justice Department.
“The defendant in this case lived in Brooklyn while making plans to travel to Syria to support a design(at)ed terrorist organization,” O’Neill said. “If that was not successful, the defendant schemed of bombing Coney Island or killing the president of the United States.”
This story starts in 2011.
“Juraboev, a national of Uzbekistan, was admitted to the United States as a diversity visa lottery recipient in 2011,” said a report issued jointly this week by the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security.
Three years later in 2014 — according to an Oct. 25, 2017 sentencing letter that then-Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Bridget Rohde sent to U.S. District Judge William Kuntz — Juraboev “first came to the attention of the government with his online postings on an Uzbek-language social media website.”
The website, according to the U.S. attorney, “propagated ISIS’s ideology and called for its Uzbek-speaking audience to join ISIS.”
On Aug. 8, 2014, Juraboev, then about 24 years old, went to this site and posted an alarming message.
“Greetings!” he wrote. “We too wanted to pledge our allegiance and commit ourselves while not present there. I am in USA now but we don’t have any arms. But is it possible to commit ourselves as dedicated martyrs anyway while here?
“What I am saying is, to shoot Obama and then get shot ourselves, will it do?” Juraboev said.
“That will strike fear in the hearts of the infidels,” he said….
