Obama Potential Supreme Court Nominee Let Off Cartoon Gunman Because She Wasn't Sure What "Jihad" Meant

"What precisely was meant by “fighting” whenever he discussed it, however, was not clear."


The Mohammed cartoon shootings did not turn into a massacre because of the quick actions of police officers on the scene. But if a massacre had occurred, much of the responsibility would rest with Judge Mary H. Murguia.

Judge Murguia is a Clinton appointee and has been mentioned as a potential Obama Supreme Court nominee. Her sister, Janet Murguia, heads the racist hate group known as La Raza or The Race, which is closely tied to the Obama White House's amnesty effort. Her brother, Carlos Murguia, coordinated the the Immigration Amnesty Program before Clinton also nominated him for a judgeship.

The FBI knew that Elton Simpson, one of the Garland Jihadists, was a threat and had attempted to lock him up after amassing evidence that he intended to go to Somalia as a terrorist. They had him on tape stating "that Allah loves an individual who is "out there fighting [non-Muslims]" and "If you get shot, or you get killed, it's [heaven] straight away." Mr. Simpson then said "[Heaven] that's what we here for...so why not take that route?"

This was back in 2011.

In another recording from May 29, 2009, Mr. Simpson told Mr. Deng "it's time to go to Somalia, brother...we know plenty of brothers from Somalia." Mr. Simpson and Mr. Deng then discussed their possible contacts in Africa. Mr. Simpson then said "It's time. I'm tellin' you man. We gonna make it to the battlefield...it's time to roll." Mr. Simpson and Mr. Deng then discussed "jihad".

Simpson's lawyers suggested that Jihad was a spiritual struggle.

Thus far, the Government has failed to show even one instance where Mr. Simpson mentions “violent jihad” in Somalia. That phrase is one made up by the Government, likely because it is aware that  jihad in the Muslim religion does not necessarily imply violence. Instead, jihad signifies a struggle between two forces. Muslims use the word “jihad” to signify one of three types of struggles: 1. An internal struggle to maintain faith, 2.The struggle to improve the Muslim society, or 3. The struggle in a holy war.

Judge Murguia appears to have accepted some of the defense's arguments, writing that, "It is true that the Defendant had
expressed sympathy and admiration for individuals who “fight” non-Muslims as well as his belief in the establishment of Shariah law, all over the world including in Somalia. What precisely was meant by “fighting” whenever he discussed it, however, was not clear."

"Neither was what the Defendant meant when he stated he wanted to get to the "battlefield" in Somalia."

You can tell Murguia is a Clinton appointee. She's probably also unclear on the definition of what 'is' is.

"to reach this conclusion, Agent Hebert must make a number of inferential leaps –from Defendant's expressed support of "fighting" of non-Muslims and his support for the establishment of Shariah law, to his sending a video regarding the permissibility of martyrdom operations, to his statement about going to the battlefield in Somalia and his statement that school is a "just a front"."

Murguia chose not to make any inferential leaps about battlefields or fighting non-Muslims. Instead Elton Simpson got off with a slap on the wrist because Murguia chose not to find that he was lying about being engaged in terrorism.

Now a man has been shot and a serious terrorist attack was narrowly averted because Judge Murguia refused to do her job.
