LOWELL, MA. — A 22-year-old Syrian refugee is behind bars after only two months in the United States after he was accused Thursday night of inappropriately touching a 13-year-old girl at a state-run swimming pool in Lowell.
In Lowell District Court on Friday, Emad Hasso, of Lowell, was ordered held on $25,000 cash bail after pleading not guilty via an interpreter to one count of indecent assault and battery on someone under 16.
Judge Stacy Fortes set the bail over the defense attorney’s objections, because Hasso’s only ties to this country are his family members with whom he lives.
Prosecutor Sam Miller said that around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, the 13-year-old Lowell girl was at the Raymond Lord Memorial Pool at the North Common Park in Lowell when she said a man approached her, touched her upper thigh and asked her age.
The girl told him she was too young for him and walked away, Miller said.
The man, who was later identified as Hasso, allegedly began to follow the girl around the pool and approached her again when she was swimming, touching her upper thigh and again asking her age.
The girl responded that she was a “little kid, leave me alone,” Miller said.
Other people at the pool, including the lifeguard, saw some of the interaction between Hasso and the alleged victim, and intervened, Miller said.
Police said the incident may have been captured on video security cameras at the pool.
When questioned by the Massachusetts Environmental Police, who oversee state pools operated by the state Department of Conservation and Recreation, Hasso indicated he had been in the U.S. for about two months.
Defense attorney William Kittredge said Hasso, who speaks little English, receives assistance from the International Institute of New England, a nonprofit group with an office in Lowell that offers information and resources to refugees and immigrants.
Kittredge said Hasso told him that while he was swimming in the pool he may have “accidentally bumped” the girl, but he denies inappropriately touching the teen or speaking to her.
During a hearing in which the girl’s mother was granted a harassment order on behalf of her daughter, Hasso used the interpreter to tell the judge, “First of all, I don’t speak the language and I haven’t spoke to her.”
Fortes ordered that Hasso have no contact with anyone under 16, except for family members, stay away from the victim, the Lord pool and all DCR properties.
Hasso is scheduled for a pretrial conference on July 29.
So, while the pope is busy casting G-d’s pearls before the swine, these muzswine are out beheading statues of the Virgin Mary.

Massachusetts Catholic churches have suffered an outbreak of vandalism, and evidence suggests the vandals could be religiously-motivated Muslims.
Burlington Police Tuesday found three statues had been vandalized at St. Margaret Parish, The Boston Globe reports.
“Two statues, which sit at the top of a hill on the property, had their hands severed and multiple sets of rosary beads removed and scattered on the ground,” Burlington Police said in a statement.
“The third statue, located near the rectory and depicting the Virgin Mary, had its head severed and both hands removed.”
The discovery comes just days after vandals spray-painted a statue of the Virgin Mary at St. Catherine of Siena Parish in Norwood on Good Friday, the sacred holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus.
It’s unclear whether the crimes are connected, but the quick succession is unusual. Mary’s statue in Norwood was coated in black spray paint, and at the bottom, as pointed out by JihadWatch, someone painted the word “Allah.”
“The Arabic script is somewhat convoluted; but, yes, it does say ‘Allah,’” Shaul Bakhash, George Mason University world history professor, told The Daily Caller News Foundation after reviewing the writing.
Norwood Police told TheDCNF they had not yet made any arrests. Burlington police are still investigating.
“This is a deeply disturbing crime committed against a religious institution in our community during a major holiday season,” Burlington Police Chief Michael Kent said in a statement. “We will undertake a thorough investigation and use all assets at our disposal to find those responsible and hold them accountable.”
Okay, now compare and contrast the story above with this:

If these were statues of Muhammad outside the mosques and counter-jihadists did the same, would it be charged as a ‘Hate-Crime?’

Last week, the Chief Justice of Massachusetts’s Supreme Judicial Court, Ralph Gants, spoke before the Islamic Society of Boston. He affirmed his support for the mosque, telling congregants that, “you do not stand alone.” Gants is just one of several high profile visits to the mosque in recent months, which have included the Mayor of Boston, the Boston Police Commissioner and local rabbis and reverends.
The Islamic Society of Boston (ISB), however, has a long history of extremism. It was founded by the Al Qaeda operative Abdulrahman Alamoudi, who was jailed in 2004 for participating in a Libyan plot to assassinate Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah. The ISB’s listed trustees have included prominent Islamist operatives, including Yusuf Al Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the global Muslim Brotherhood. And in 2008, the Muslim American Society, which runs the ISB’s Cultural Center, was labelled by federal prosecutors “as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.”

Today, the ISB claims it is a “model for civic engagement,” and works to “strengthen community relations.” Why, then, does it continue to promote some of America’s most radical preachers?
On October 30, the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) hosted a two-day conference on behalf of an extremist Islamic organization called the Qalam Institute. Two of the keynote speakers are notorious fundamentalist preachers.
One such speaker, Mufti Hussain Kamani, has called upon God to “reward the martyrs of Palestine.” And in a pamphlet titled, ‘The Prophetic Code,’ published by the Qalam Institute, Kamani cites Quranic verse and commentary, in which he tells Muslims: “do not resemble the Jews.” Parents are also advised to “beat” their children “if they do not [pray].”
In a talk titled “Sex, Masturbation and Islam,” Kamani explains that a Muslim man must only fulfill his sexual desires “with his spouse…[or] with a female slave that belongs to him.”
Those who commit adultery or have sex outside of marriage, Kamani also states, must be “stoned to death.”
During another talk on ‘Rights Of A Wife In Islam,’ Kamani explains “how to deal with the women folk” and how Muslim husbands can “train their wives.” Beating women, Kamani advises, should only be a “last measure.”

Another speaker at the conference is the founder of the Qalam Institute, Abdul Nasir Jangda, who frequently presents sermons about the iniquities and treacheries of the Jews during the time of Islam’s Prophet. Jangda describes Jews in this period as a “really bad people” who opposed the peaceful message of Islam and “liked the trouble because they were able to pull the strings and maintain some type of advantage in the community through political maneuvering. … They were very hateful, very spiteful.”
According to detailed notes published by one of Jangda’s students during one of his seminars, Jangda also defended the use of female sex slaves within Islam. Jangda reportedly concluded that, “Slavery in Islam … is vastly different and superior morally and spiritually to the atrocious, obscene, and vile Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.”

Furthermore, Jangda apparently expressed support for the killing of apostates and adulterers; claimed that a wife cannot refuse her husband sex: “The thing to understand is that the husband has his set of divinely given rights one of which is the right to have his physical desires satisfied”; and called for people who drink alcohol to be beaten: “One of the largest causes of death in the United States is drunk driving. Such policies would help curb them immensely and avoid harm to the people at large.”
Over the past few months, the ISB has enjoyed high-profile political support, despite its continued promote of bigoted, extremist speakers. The ISB repeatedly claims to have rejected the fundamentalist beliefs of its founding trustees and former officials. Its continued embrace of some of America’s most radical preachers, however, suggests otherwise. When will Massachusetts politicians reject this politics of hate and instead work with moderate Muslim groups?
