Surprise, surprise, another inmate released from the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba has been arrested for reengaging in terrorism. His name is Sabir Mahfouz Lahmar and his Department of Defense (DOD) file says he has links to “multiple terrorist plots” and as a member of the Algerian Armed Islamic Group (GIA) plotted with Al Qaeda to attack the United States Embassy in Sarajevo.

“Detainee advocated hostilities against US forces and the international community in Bosnia, and is linked to multiple terrorist plots and criminal related activity,” according to Lahmar’s DOD file. “Detainee had intentions to travel to Afghanistan and Iran, and is reported as doing so prior to his capture. Detainee has demonstrated a commitment to jihad, and would likely engage in anti-US activities if released.” Lahmar ended up at Gitmo in 2002 because the Algerian government refused to take him into custody after Bosnian authorities exhausted the legal limits for detention. The Pentagon recommended continued detention and determined that he was a high risk that posed a threat to the U.S., its interests and allies. Lahmar was also labeled a “high threat” from a detention perspective and of high intelligence value.

Also of note in the DOD file is that Lahmar was on Saudi Arabia’s payroll as an employee of the Saudi High Commission for Relief (SHCR), a non-governmental organization (NGO). He was arrested and convicted in 1997 for assaulting an American Citizen in Bosnia but was released, “after the SHCR intervened on his behalf,” the military file states. “After his release, detainee returned to work for the SHCR in Sarajevo.” Authorities in Croatia believe Lahmar was involved in the 1997 bombings in Travnik and Mostar and that he served in the el-Mujahid Brigade conducting training for acts of terrorism in the 1990s. Other reports link Lahmar to car theft and document forgery and indicate he’s wanted in Belgium and France for his involvement in violent activities, the military file says.

Despite his disturbing Pentagon document, the Obama administration released Lahmar from the top security compound at the U.S. Naval base in southeast Cuba in 2009 after France agreed to take him. This week he was arrested in Bordeaux as part of a terrorist cell that operated a recruiting network for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). A British newspaper report says Lahmar was one of six people—four men and two women—captured as part of an aggressive crackdown on a jihadist recruiting network in the European nation that’s been rocked by multiple terrorist attacks in recent years. Just a few years ago a former Gitmo captive, 46-year-old Moroccan Lahcen Ikassrien, was arrested in Spain for operating a sophisticated recruitment network for the Syrian and Iraqi-based terror group known as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Like Lahmar and Ikassreien, many of the captives released from Gitmo have predictably returned to terrorist causes and it has long been documented in military and intelligence assessments. Just last year a report issued by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) showed that of the 161 Gitmo detainees released by the Obama administration, nine were confirmed to be “directly involved in terrorist or insurgent activities” and that 113 of the 532 Gitmo captives released during the George W. Bush administration have engaged in terrorist activities. “Based on trends identified during the past eleven years, we assess that some detainees currently at GTMO will seek to reengage in terrorist or insurgent activities after they are transferred,” according to the ODNI, which is composed of more than a dozen spy agencies, including Air Force, Army, Navy, Treasury and Coast Guard intelligence as well as the Federal Bureau of Intelligence (FBI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

The agency also stated in its report that “former GTMO detainees routinely communicate with each other, families of other former detainees, and previous associates who are members of terrorist organizations. The reasons for communication span from the mundane (reminiscing about shared experiences) to the nefarious (planning terrorist operations). We assess that some GTMO detainees transferred in the future also will communicate with other former GTMO detainees and persons in terrorist organizations.”

Other examples of recidivism among Gitmo captives include dozens who have rejoined Al Qaeda in Yemen, the country where the 2009 Christmas Day airline bomber proudly trained, and a number of high-ranking Al Qaeda militants in Yemen involved in a sophisticated scheme to send bombs on a U.S.-bound cargo plane. A few years ago, a Gitmo alum named Mullah Abdul Rauf, who once led a Taliban unit, established the first ISIS base in Afghanistan. In 2014, Judicial Watch uncovered an embarrassing gaffe involving an Al Qaeda operative liberated from Gitmo years earlier. Turns out the U.S. government put him on a global terrorist list and offered $5 million for information on his whereabouts!

As far back as 2010 former president Barack Obama’s National Intelligence Director confirmed that one in four inmates released from Gitmo resume terrorist activities against the United States. A year earlier the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency, which gathers foreign military intelligence, disclosed that the number of Gitmo prisoners who returned to the fight since their release had nearly doubled in a short time. The assessment was made by using data such as fingerprints, pictures and other intelligence reports to confirm the high rate of recidivism among the released prisoners.

But I just kissed a girl!

On “The Elvis Duran Show” this Tuesday, Perry talked about how open borders for the US could do wonders and if people with differing views could just “co-exist,” the situation would be much better for the world at large.

The singer told Duran:

“You know I can’t really tell anyone else how they should feel but I just feel devastated. The thing of it is, you know, besides all the weird stuff that goes around on the internet, which is, you know, sometimes a great place, but an absolute you know underbelly mob pit of horribleness, I think that the greatest thing that we can do now is just unite as people, as fan bases, all of it, you know?”

She added, “’Cause I think like, there, like, as much you know, whatever we say behind people’s back, ’cause the internet can be a little bit ruthless as far as fan bases go, but I think that the greatest thing we could do is just unite and love on each other, and like, no barriers, no borders, like, we all need to just co-exist.”

While discussing the idea of giving culture classes to immigrants so they can easily adapt to American culture and Society, Higbie told “America’s Newsroom” host Shannon Bream that most celebrities, who have been citizens of the US for all their lives, don’t respect the “culture of the United States of America.”

“If you come to America, you’re American and nothing else,” Higbie said. “ we don’t have people who respect the culture of the United States of America.”

“You have people like Katy Perry … this woman has said, ‘Oh we need to give them hugs, hug it out,’” Higbie said, referring to terrorists.

Higbie then looked directly at the camera and said, “Go to hell, Katy Perry.”

“Hold one of your concerts in Syria and see how that goes,” he said.

Higbie said most celebrities don’t understand the nature of the conflicts when it comes to the world arena.

“They don’t understand any of this, and they don’t want to understand, too,” Higbie said. “And that’s why I’m so strong against these celebrities who want to speak out.

“We’re putting the political correctness of the Islamic culture over the lives of our citizens,” he said.

That doesn't make sense even for me.

At a town hall meeting, Democratic Rep. Mark DeSaulnier (Calif.) told an 11-year-old girl that President Donald Trump is more dangerous than terrorists.

Congressman DeSaulnier, at the recently held town hall meeting, spent most of his time mollifying the liberal attendants by criticizing Trump and Republicans in general. However, it was his response to the final question of the night, by an 11-year-old girl, Eden, that had Republican supporters fuming.

Read by a member of the congressman’s staff, Eden’s question asked about the terrible things she’s often heard about Trump and the way she’s been looking at the world now.

“My name is Eden, and I’m 11 years old. My mom is worried about my future with President Trump,” the question read, according to a report by the East Bay Times. “On election night, my mom cried. Kids at my school are worrying about being deported. I’ve read and heard awful things about him. Should I be worried about my future? As a kid, what can I do about it?”

“From the mouths of babes,” DeSaulnier replied. “I think you should be concerned. This is dangerous stuff. I’ve said a few times: The most dangerous person in America isn’t a terrorist, it’s the person who’s president of the United States. So, Eden, you’ve got to read, you have to be thoughtful, and you have to be engaged.”

According to the East Bay Times report, DeSaulnier said “something similar happened” the previous night. DeSaulnier hinted at his own answer as being “a little out of body for me. I sort of responded to the way people were responding to me.”

DeSaulnier is a known critic of Trump. Last Wednesday, he took a jab at Trump for the deportation of a “dreamer.”

“DESPICABLE: A DREAMer, who has called the US home since age 9, was deported despite @POTUS’s promise our students shouldn’t worry,” wrote DeSaulnier on Twitter.

Yeah dude, you may want to start running now.

The Islamic State group, more commonly known as ISIS, released a recorded statement on Tuesday, mocking Donald Trump; saying the United States was drowning and “being run by an idiot.”

In its first official statement on the new president of the United States since he took office in January, the terrorist group’s new spokesman, Abu Hassan al-Muhajer, said in the audio recording that America had “drowned” and was being ruled by someone who “does not know what Syria or Iraq or Islam is.”

“America you have drowned and there is no saviour, and you have become prey for the soldiers of the caliphate in every part of the earth, you are bankrupt and the signs of your demise are evident to every eye,” al-Muhajer said

“There is no more evidence than (that) you being run by an idiot who does not know what Syria or Iraq or Islam is.

“Die of spite America, die of spite, a nation where both young and old are racing to die in the name of God will not be defeated.”

The 37-minute audio recording was released on the messaging website Telegram. In the statement, al-Muhajer praised the recent terrorist attacks in Europe and called on IS’s followers to carry out further such attacks in the US, Russia, and European countries to relieve pressure on the group in Syria and Iraq, where it had gained control of large areas initially.

He said that the current situation in Iraq, in which ISIS is engaged in heavy clashes with the Iraqi army in Mosul, the terrorist organization’s last stronghold in Iraq, marked “the greatest period in our jihad…and the most dangerous turning point in our jihad.”

Al-Muhajer claimed that IS would continue to maintain its stronghold in Yemen, Iraq, and Syria and would never be driven from the Middle East.

A pro-ISIS group, The United Cyber Caliphate (UCC) hacking group, also released a video for its supporters around the world. They released names of 8700 people on a kill list, instructing followers to “kill [those on the list] where you find them.”

In terms of the message to Donald Trump, they said:

“We have a message to the people of the U.S., and most importantly, your President Trump:

“Know that we will continue to wage war against you, know that your counter attacks only make us stronger.

“The UCC will start a new step in this war against you, we call #DemolishingFences.

“So expect us soon Insha’Allah!”

During last year’s presidential election campaign, the group also released a document calling Mr. Trump “impulsive and unpredictable.”

Correct or not, Donald Trump is a man that shouldn’t be prodded or mocked.  ISIS leaders may come to quickly regret their message.

ISIS should think twice about poking the bear.

Another day, another attack by the Islamic State.

This time, a blast ripped through a subway train in St. Petersburg, Russia.

At least ten are dead and another 50 are injured.

While Russian President Vladimir Putin was reserved and did not want to point to terrorism until the bombing was investigated, members of ISIS are already cheering.

Since 2013, at least 3,867 people have been killed in ISIS terror attacks and many thousands more have been injured.

So far in 2017, at least 344 people have been killed including one American in the recent attack in London.

In 2015, 14 Americans were killed in San Bernardino by radical Islamic terrorists and another 24 were injured.

Earlier in 2015, two ISIS members opened fire on police officers in Garland, Texas who are guarding an art exhibit that featured cartoon images of Muhammad. Thanks to the quick draws of the Texas lawmen, the Islamic terrorists were the only ones to lose their lives that day.

A similar incident happened in Queens New York months before the Texas incident and the ISIS convert was shot dead.

And then you have the Boston Bombing where six people were killed. The bombing was committed by the Tsarnaev brothers who were found to have ties to an ISIS-linked mosque.

Russia is of course no stranger to Islamic terrorism.

In October of 2015, 224 passengers of a Metrojet flight were shot down enroute to St. Petersburg. ISIS took responsibility for the bombing and even posted a picture of the device used in the explosion.

While the previous presidential administration never wanted to admit it, ISIS and its radical Islamic offshoots are at war with the world.

The strategy of the Obama Administration was to ignore the violence until the groups died out through lack of funding or interest. The lack of action led to an explosive growth with the terrorist group gaining complete takeovers of land in several nations.

Even on social media, the growth is evident with pro-ISIS tweets increasing by 600% within the last year alone.

In January of this year, Trump had hoped that Russian and U.S. forces could “go out together and knock the hell out of ISIS.”

But that was before Democrat leaders began their witch-hunt over alleged Russian influence in the Presidential Election.

Now, with the media hounding the subject 24/7 and Trump’s own Federal Bureau of Investigation investigating his campaign’s links to Russia, little action is likely to happen.

By chilling the relationship between Russia and the United States with unfounded acquisition of impropriety, there is only one true winner: ISIS.

If Trump and Putin made the commitment to wipe out ISIS, the terrorist group’s time on this earth would be limited, regardless of where they chose to hide. If one doubts that, they should ask a WWII Nazi — if they can find one.

The FBI has confirmed what Judicial Watch reported last week, that the Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter has ties to radical Islam and carried out the attack on behalf of a terrorist group. During a bond hearing in a south Florida federal court this week, an FBI special agent testified that the shooter, Esteban Santiago, communicated with Islamic terrorists in “jihadi chat rooms” and committed the massacre on behalf of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Santiago killed five people and wounded six others during the bloody rampage in the baggage claim area of the Ft. Lauderdale Airport earlier this month. Authorities immediately attributed the attack to mental illness, saying that Santiago was a Hispanic Army veteran that became unhinged after a tour in Iraq. Santiago has been charged with an act of violence at an international airport, which could get him a death sentence. According to the federal complaint, Santiago fired 10 to 15 rounds of ammunition from his firearm, aiming at his victims’ heads and walking while shooting in a methodical manner. At this week’s bond hearing, FBI special agent Michael Ferlazzo testified that Santiago said he was fighting for ISIS and had been in touch with other terrorists who were planning attacks in jihadi internet chat rooms. The judge ruled that Santiago be held without bond and his next court appearance is scheduled for January 30.

Last week Judicial Watch ignited a ruckus after revealing that Santiago is a Muslim convert who years before joining the U.S. Army took on an Islamic name (Aashiq Hammad), downloaded terrorist propaganda and recorded Islamic religious music online. The Obama administration’s efforts to keep the pertinent information quiet in the aftermath of the shooting brought up memories of the Benghazi cover up, in which the president and his cohorts knowingly lied to conceal that Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. Special Mission in Libya. In the Ft. Lauderdale attack the traditional mainstream media coverage promoted the government rhetoric that omitted any ties to terrorism even though early on a photo surfaced of Santiago making an ISIS salute while wearing a keffiyeh, a Palestinian Arab scarf.

Records uncovered in the days after the massacre suggest Santiago (Hammad) is a radical Islamic terrorist that’s seriously committed to Islam. Besides taking on a Muslim name, he recorded three Islamic religious songs, including the Muslim declaration faith (“there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger”) known as the Shahada. He also posted a thread about downloading propaganda videos from Islamic terrorists on a weapons and explosives forum. The investigative news site that unearthed this disturbing information connected the dots between Santiago, who is of Puerto Rican descent, and Hammad, an identity he created in 2007.

It’s still not clear why Santiago chose Ft. Lauderdale, out of all the nation’s airports, to carry out his attack. The facility is situated in Broward County, which has a large and growing Islamic community and questions remain involving who Santiago knows in the area. In 2015 Judicial Watch obtained records from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) that show an Al Qaeda terrorist who helped plan several U.S. attacks lived in Broward County and graduated from the local community college with a degree in computer engineering. His name is Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, but he also has a Hispanic identity, Javier Robles, and for years he appeared on the FBI’s most wanted list. Back in 2012 Judicial Watch reported on a terrorist front group’s demands that Broward County public schools close twice a year to celebrate Islamic holy days, illustrating the influence that Muslims have in the region.

An Al Qaeda operative incarcerated at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo has confirmed what Judicial Watch has been reporting for years, that a Saudi Arabian “rehabilitation” program that supposedly reforms jihadists is really a terrorist training camp. The U.S. has released dozens of Gitmo captives to the comical jihadist rehab and earlier this year considered sending another, senior Al Qaeda boss Ghassan Abdullah al-Sharbi, a dangerous Saudi national with a U.S. college education.

During a hearing before President Obama’s Gitmo parole board, al-Sharbi said “you guys want to send me back to Saudi Arabia because you believe there is a de-radicalization program on the surface, true. You are 100 percent right, there is a strong externally…a strong de-radicalization program, but make no mistake, underneath there is a hidden radicalization program.” The testimony was delivered months ago, but was recently declassified by the Department of Defense (DOD), which maintains that al-Sharbi is a committed jihadist and threat to the U.S., its interests and allies. The panel denied al-Sharbi’s petition for release, but has granted many others recently.

In his quest to clear out the prison and close it, Obama has embarked on a frenzy releasing droves of terrorists jailed at the U.S. Naval base in southeastern Cuba. More than 100, including Osama bin Laden’s bodyguards, have been released to the Saudi rehab program, officially known as the Prince Mohammed bin Naif Counseling and Care Center. It specializes in “spreading the concept of moderateness and rejecting immoderate way of thinking” by using art therapy, video games, exercise and sports to de-radicalize terrorists. Obama has praised the bogus Saudi terrorist rehab program, even though the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency disclosed years ago that many of the Gitmo detainees who rejoin terrorist missions after leaving the military prison returned to “the fight” after graduating from Saudi rehab.

Among them is Al Qaeda leader Ibrahim al-Rubaysh, the poster child for the Saudi rehab’s failures. Years after releasing al-Rubaysh from Gitmo, the U.S. offered a $5 million reward for information on the whereabouts of the Saudi rehab grad. The State Department coined the “senior leader” of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, revealing that “he serves as a senior advisor for AQAP operational planning and is involved in the planning of attacks.” Judicial Watch reported this two years ago, citing the State Department announcement describing al-Rubaysh as a senior AQAP sharia official since 2013 who has made public statements calling on Muslims to wage war against the United States. Many others have returned to terrorism after completing terrorist reform school.

This hasn’t deterred Obama from sending more Gitmo terrorists to the laughable de-radicalization program. Earlier this year the administration transferred nine Yemeni captives to Saudi Arabia and just a few weeks ago it approved the transfer of an Al Qaeda bomb maker, Jabran al Qahtani, that U.S. authorities believe will reengage in terrorism. The president’s Gitmo parole panel, officially known as the Periodic Review Board (PRB), specifically mentions the Mohammed bin Naif Counseling and Care Center in its final determination to transfer al Qahtani and states its “confidence in the efficacy of the Saudi rehabilitation program.” Al Qahtani’s “credible desire to participate in the Saudi rehabilitation program and reintegrate into society” also played a role in the parole board’s decision to release him. The PRB found that “the risk the detainee presents can be adequately mitigated by transfer for prosecution and rehabilitation in Saudi Arabia.”

Though al-Sharbi will remain at Gitmo, the fact remains that he disclosed damaging information about a fake Middle Eastern reform program the administration has used to free a multitude of dangerous terrorists. Based on his DOD file, al-Sharibi shouldn’t have even been considered for transfer. With a degree in electrical engineering from an Arizona college, al-Sharibi operated within the United States organizing sophisticated terrorist cells and conducting educational directives involved with mission planning. He has attended an Al Qaeda training camp and was selected by the terrorist group to a receive a special remote control detonation training to carry out attacks on U.S. forces, his DOD file states. “Detainee has demonstrated a commitment to jihad, has links to key facilitators in the Al-Qaida international terrorist network, and has participated in terrorist training,” according to the defense assessment, which also says al-Sharibi poses a high risk to western interests.

Isis to attack on Inauguration Day

Since Trump was elected a month ago, ISIS has called for violent attacks, but they are planning something big for “Blood Friday”.

Friday, January 20th, Donald J. Trump will become the 45th President of the United States. We call this day Inauguration day, but ISIS is calling it “Bloody Friday”.

The radical Islamic group has ramped up its recruiting and messaging inside America with subtitled videos and translated message boards online.

According to news reports, ISIS is claiming that it has recruited a number of English speaking soldiers in the past couple of months. They are calling for attacks, but are they actually planning one?

Just last week Abdul Razak Ali Artan attacked 11 people on the Ohio State campus with a knife. Artan ranted on Facebook about ISIS before the attack according to Cincinnati’s special agent charge for the FBI, Angela Byers.

ISIS also released a report on its al-Naba publication that Artan was a member of their group. Although the FBI is not confirming a direct connection to ISIS, the terrorist group is.

Investigators are saying the “chatter” between terrorist groups and different members are increasing. The UK’s Express Daily is reporting that groups are planning “large scale attacks” on Inauguration day.

An Inauguration Day attack would be bold, dangerous and it would send a very poignant message to Trump and his administration. That is if they can pull it off.

Even without the threat of ISIS, all major law enforcement agencies will be on high alert for the event. Thousands of protestors are expected to join the tens of thousands of people coming to watch the Inauguration.

With the continued threats coming from ISIS and many Americans that are not happy with Trump, Washington will feel like occupied France on January 20th.

ISIS rarely lives up to its rhetoric, but planning an attack on the inauguration could be their boldest move yet inside of America. Luckily the FBI and many other agencies are working hard to make sure we are attack free.

This isn’t the first time that terrorists wanted to turn the Inauguration into a “blood bath”. CNN reported about terrorist threats prior to Obama’s inauguration.

The FBI did a great job during the Obama Inauguration and we expect them to do the same on January 20th.

Despite any terror threats, are you planning on attending Trump’s Inauguration? Let us know in the comments below.

submarine

A Russian submarine was spotted off the coast of one our strongest allies and hints to a much larger conflict looming in the future.

Just off the UK coast a Russian submarine, believed to be one of three special subs that are incredibly armed.

The sub was spotted in the Irish Sea and is being tracked by the Royal Navy.

It was just last week that the Russian northern fleet went through the English Channel on their way to the Mediterranean Sea to assist Syria in attacking the last stronghold of ISIS.

There are reports that Russia is planning to violently attack ISIS in Aleppo, Syria on the eve of the U.S. elections.

America is also positioning subs and other military assets around the globe.

On Monday we learned that a nuclear sub was on its way to the South China Sea due to rising tensions. It is a show of force for the U.S.

Russia is using a show of force right now too. Their only aircraft carrier and much of their active navy is on its way to Syria now.

The final week of the elections could be more interesting than we thought.

Do you think Russia will off a full assault on ISIS in Syria? Let us know in the comments below.

Days before the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history Obama’s Homeland Security secretary became the highest ranking government official—and first sitting cabinet member—to highlight a convention held annually by a radical Muslim group with extremist origins.

The Indiana-based nonprofit is called Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and it was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of Hamas and Al Qaeda. ISNA was a co-conspirator in a huge case involving an Islamic charity (Holy Land Foundation) that provided support to a foreign terrorist organization, mainly Hamas.

ISNA conferences often feature contentious speakers, including renowned Islamists and advocates of terrorism. Among them is Imam Warth Deen Umar, who referred to the 9/11 hijackers as martyrs that were secretly admired by Muslims and has called for violent jihad.

At one ISNA convention Umar portrayed the Holocaust as punishment of Jews for being “serially disobedient to Allah,” according to a research conglomerate recognized as the world’s most comprehensive data center on radical Islamic terrorist groups.

The nonprofit, Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT), published a disturbing report on ISNA that documents its radical ideology and conference speakers throughout the years that include “some of the world famous Islamists and advocates of Jihad.”

About a week before the 15th anniversary of 9/11, Obama deployed Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to ISNA’s annual powwow in Chicago. The appearance likely amounted to a slap in the face to many Americans, especially survivors of the 2001 attacks.

Johnson’s speech lasted about 22 minutes and he basically said ISIS/ISIL isn’t Islamic, that Islam is a religion of peace and that Islamophobia is the same as McCarthyism. In a press release announcing the appearance, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) writes that Johnson will discuss the Obama administration’s “continued commitment to build bridges to Muslim American communities, and encourage Muslim Americans—particularly youth—to continue to fully participate in American society.”

Johnson didn’t exactly receive a warm reception and was booed repeatedly, especially as he exited the stage. He told the crowd that a group of terrorists is attempting to hijack their religion and that he and Obama “refuse to bend to the political pressure to call terrorism Islamic extremism.”

He went on to say that “we know that ISIL, though it claims the banner of Islam, occupies no part of your religion, a religion founded on peace.” Then Johnson proceeded to compare the discrimination and vilification suffered by Muslims to the plight of African Americans, in particular to “tar you with a broad brush of suspicion.”

Johnson proclaimed that the bullying and physical attacks experienced by Muslims nationwide are familiar to him as a black man. “I look out at this room of American Muslims and I see myself,” he said, adding that theirs is a similar struggle to the one his African American ancestors fought to win acceptance in the U.S.
