Muslim Killer on Disability and Food Stamps had Diamonds and 200 Credit Cards

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

This sort of thing is surprisingly common. The only reason it has come to light is because the Muslim settler committed two murders, one of which he actually got away with.

The Point has discussed the murder of Gelareh Bagherzadeh before. Gelareh Bagherzadeh was an Iranian Christian who came to this country only to be murdered by a Muslim because she encouraged his daughter to marry the man she loved.

He was too disabled to work. But not too disabled to kill.

The father, a strict Muslim, was furious when his Jordanian-American daughter married a man without his permission.

Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan blamed his daughter’s husband, relatives say. They say he also faulted one of her closest friends, 30-year-old Gelareh Bagherzadeh, a Christian convert who widely denounced Islam.

First Bagherzadeh was killed, gunned down outside her parents’ Galleria townhouse complex in January 2012. Eleven months later, Irsan’s son-in-law died after being shot multiple times in the northwest Harris County apartment he shared with his wife.

And Ali thought he could get away with it because he had already gotten away with so many other things.

Federal authorities executed a search warrant at Irsan’s sprawling, 5-acre property 40 miles north of Houston, where they allegedly found cash, diamonds, pearls, weapons and phony passports hidden in attic rafters, in secret compartments throughout a cluster of trailers and outbuildings and even inside the buried drum of a clothes dryer at the Conroe property.

Irsan, his wife Shmou Ali Alrawabdeh, and another daughter were subsequently arrested on a variety of federal fraud charges and are in federal custody.

A federal criminal complaint detailing the discoveries recounts a saga of nearly 20 years in which the 57-year-old naturalized citizen from Jordan and his family allegedly scammed taxpayer disability assistance funds claiming “fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue symptoms,” and “affective disorders” while secreting real estate, vehicles and cash in U.S. and foreign bank accounts.

The complaint also alleges Irsan was receiving taxpayer funds for a son not living in the U.S., maintained several addresses on the property to facilitate various schemes and once disabled a safety feature on a saw then purposefully cut himself to receive a $75,000 settlement.

Ali was certainly industrious and entrepreneurial, just not quite in the way amnesty advocates like to claim.

Also found on the property was a makeshift gun range, which witnesses said “five or six Muslim families” frequently visited to fire AK-47s and information about Irsan’s attempts to get a silencer.

Nothing to do with Islam I’m sure.

While there have been no allegations of terrorist ties regarding the family’s alleged foreign bank accounts and suspicious wire transactions, Irsan’s strict adherence to radical Islam may have been a motive in the alleged murders.

Authorities are also re-examining a 1999 case in which Irsan was not indicted after claiming self-defense in the shooting of son-in-law Amjad Alidam, who was married to Nasemah Rachelle Irsan.

And that’s not all.

Prosecutors also revealed, in connection to the social security fraud and credit card charges against Irsan, that they found more than 200 credit cards with various names and multiple variations of his own name throughout the Irwin Keel home. Arresting officers say they also found more than 40 similar credit cards in his wallet the morning he was arrested.

His daughter also alleges, among multiple other schemes detailed in court documents, that Ali Irsan purposely disabled the safety device on a Ryobi rotary saw and purposely cut his own foot. Prosecutors say he used that injury to receive a $75,000 settlement from the manufacturer.

    This savage sounds like he’s qualified to be a Community Organizer.

    This guy actually committed three murders, not just two. Amjad Alidam in 1999 (son-in-law), Gelareh Bagherzadeh in January 2012 (friend of daughter), and Coty Beavers in November 2012 (son-in-law).

    “There is no shortage of high-profile Jewish crime. Take the infamous New Square scandal, in which four Hassidim were convicted for defrauding the government of $11 million by setting up a fictitious yeshiva to receive federal student aid money. Or the case in Williamsburg, New York, in which the rabbi of a Jewish day school [Hertz Frankel of Satmar] stole 6 million dollars from the Board of Education over several years by falsely identifying more than eighty individuals as school employees.”

    NOTHING TO DO WITH jUDAISM, I’M SURE. And they do it so much better than the mooslimes, don’t they, David?

    David Greenfield is one of the dumbest loons that ever existed! Hey, Greenfield, when is sharia law coming to US beaches? At least you won’t have to keep stuffing your thong every summer.

      Ah yes, those radical Jews who cut off people’s heads when they won’t convert to Judaism, who shoot innocent people while shouting “L’achaim!” and who conspire to commit acts of terrorism from within their synagogues even though nothing in their holy books even remotely justifies such conduct – they’re a much bigger threat than crazy Muslims.

      Of course Jewish criminals exist. But as far as I know, none of them are engaged in a violent jihad or even a non-violent scheme of subversion (like the Muslim Brotherhood is) to overthrow American freedom and replace it with – well, what exactly is it you think they’re doing? Your false equivalence isn’t going to convince anybody still capable of reason. I suggest you simply leave FPM since you’ve obviously nothing to contribute here.

      Fine, there are Jewish schemers, too, but did those yeshiva rabbis also murder three people, each? Did each of them murder each son in law they didn’t care for and their daughter’s friends?

      Those kind of behaviors are only common among Muslims and nobody else.

    • liz

      There’s no shortage of crime, period. But only Muslims murder (their own relatives, no less) for religious reasons.
      Your attempt at drawing a moral equivalence is pathetic.

    • tom_billesley

      Are we to be castigated for holding muslims to a high standard of behaviour in society, when muslims spend so much time telling us how superior they are to us kuffar?

    As a native born American with a rare medical condition, I’ve never tried to collect government dollars out of a sense of community and patriotism.
    As a science-based thinker,I never really thought the world was 6,000 years old, so never put much stock in religion. I have gone to religious meetings and joined in prayer with friends as part of my social circles.
    This case looks to me like plunder, with religion and national origin as a shield of political correctness. I’ve worked for some wealthy people, but those with much of a level of arrogance, I’ve learned, aren’t worth the headaches.
    This guy would have occasioned a ‘Go &$!@ yourself’ quote on any work he called me in for.

      Some on disability do really need it which is why this pisses me off. I worked 27 years busting my butt to only end up with a back so trashed I can’t sleep or function most days. Sure I am on SSDI, I paid into it the entire time I worked so why not use it. It is the people who never paid into it or maybe worked 5 years their entire life that irritate me.

    A Jordanian…hmmm…I’m surprised. Usually the scammers and organized criminals in the muslim world are Yemeni. Better check his backstory,it might all be a lie. Oh,well,flush.

    We fight over there to keep this scum from coming over here. Time to end ALL immigration and roll up the welcome mat.

  • Dwight Upton

    Is this a problem? Doesn’t he have religious rights?
    You’re just jealous because your constitutional rights are being challenged.
    No guns for you, you might use it on a guy like this.
    No freedom of speech, you might say something against this guy.
    No property rights, you might want your credit cards and passports back.
    The Right to Life and Liberty should be taken away from this guy.
