ISIS IN AMERICA: Newly Released Police Body Cam Video Shows Jihadi Attacking Arizona Officer With Knife



Maricopa County Police have released police body camera footage that shows an 18 year (DOB September 19, 2000) old Muslim man lunging toward a sergeant with a knife.

On January 7, 2019 Sgt. Brandon Wells shot Ismail Hamed, who was charged with aggravated assault and terrorism, where he approached the sergeant outside of a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office substation.

The body camera footage was released along with two 911 calls on Thursday February 14  after Maricopa County Superior Judge Sally Duncan’s ordered their release on Tuesday. Despite the fact that this is an active terrorism case involving ISIS,  there has been an effort county’s effort to seal the documents. However, according to Arizona law, body-cam videos, 911 calls, police report and probable-cause statements are public records.

On Thursday, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office posted the following message on their Facebook page, with the video of the attempted ISIS attack.

“A law enforcement professional and member of this organization was targeted by an individual whose intent was to take a life in the pursuit of furthering the ideology of a terrorist group. Our deputy himself as a consummate professional, managing an aggressive threat, being forced to deliver lethal force to defend himself from the attacker.”


The decision to seal the records has sparked outrage. On Thursday at a press conference, Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone said he and and the prosecutor’s office decided it was best to not release the records to the public. In response, numerous Arizona publications and national new agencies, including The Republic,  Associated Press, Channel 12 (KPNX-TV); Channel 5 (KPHO-TV); Channel 3 (KTVK-TV) and Channel 15 (KNXV-TV), have asked the judge to release all of the records, arguing that they were public records.

“I think the greater challenge is we have to find that space that there’s more consistency relative to when it’s appropriate for law-enforcement agencies to release things, ensuring we don’t undermine any element of an ongoing investigations or prosecutions,” Penzone said.

According to the Maricopa Sheriff’s Office, Hamed called a 911 operator twice asking to speak to a deputy in which he told the operator he was carrying a knife and rocks. t.

“My name is Ismail Hamed. I live in Fountain Hills, and I’m owing my allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. I just want a cop to come real quick and I want to deal with them,” Hamed said.

Sgt. Wells’ body-camera shows him  walking toward Hamed who told Wells he “wants to talk about a political issue” regarding the Middle East.
“The wars we are involved in are not good. They are tearing countries apart. I think we need to do something, which is why I am here,” Hamed is heard saying on the body camera video.
When Sgt. Wells asked Hamed if he lived in town and requested to see his ID, Hamed began throwing rocks at Sgt. Wells, prompting Sgt. Wells to point his gun at Hamed. When Sgt. Wells told Hamed to back away, Hamed pulled out a knife and lunged toward Sgt. Wells. Sgt. Wells gave Hamed multiple warnings that he would shoot him if he did not drop the knife.

 Hamed  told Sgt. Wells, “shoot me”. After Hamed refused to follow orders, he was shot twice by Sgt. Wells, but survived his injuries.

Sgt. Wells can be heard calling for backup and telling Hamed to drop the knife while on the ground. “Stay away from the knife. Stay away from it. I’m ok. He just tried to stab me,” he said.

“Do you have nay other weapons on you”? the Sgt. asked.

According to the indictment, Hamed “intentionally or knowingly did provide advice, assistance, direction or management” to ISIS, which he clearly stated in his phone call to 911.

Despite the fact that Hamed pledged his allegiance on video to ISIS, the Maricopa Sheriff’s Office, the FBI, and the County Attorney’s Office have worked to seal the records. Sources within the Sheriff’s office told this reporter that officers were told they would be “written up” and even fired if they speak to the media about Hamed’s case.

Even more disturbing is the FBI will not provide the media with any details about whether or not Hamed was planning to commit a larger terrorist attack.

According to the FBI , Hamed , who is currently being held at Maricopa County Jail, was born in the U.S and might be facing federal terrorism charges, according to FBI Special-Agent-In-Charge Michael DeLeon.

When Hamed was first arrested, he was initially charged with aggravated assault. However, because numerous members of law enforcement in Maricopa were trained in counter terrorism by John Guandolo, they were able to pursue terrorism charges. In 2006, Guandolo was designated a “Subject Matter Expert” by FBI Headquarters and created and implemented the FBI’s first Counterterrorism Training Program focused on the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic Doctrine, and the global Islamic Movement, and. This course was hailed as “groundbreaking” by the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director in a brief to the Vice President’s National Security Staff.

In 2014, the Maricopa County Attorney brought Understanding the Threat President John Guandolo in for a one day program for over 300 police officers from around Arizona. As a result of this training, over the next several years, UTT conducted several 3-day programs, most of which were supported by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office (MCAO).

As described on the Understanding the Threat website:

“Understanding the Threat provides threat-focused strategic and operational consultation, training, and education for federal, state, and local leadership and agencies in government, the private sector, and for private citizens. UTT is the only organization in America which is training leaders, elected officials, law enforcement, military personnel, and citizens, about the Global Islamic Movement and the jihadi networks in communities around the nation.  UTT is also the only organization showing security professionals and state leaders how to locate and map out jihadi organizations, locate jihadis, and dismantle the network at the local and state level. While UTT briefs and teaches about many of the threats external and internal to the United States, its primary concern is the threats to the Republic and the West in general from the Global Islamic Movement.”

When Hamed pledged allegiance to ISIS while talking with the 911 dispatcher, the dispatcher should have been able to immediately determine that Hamed is a  jihadi. Hamed also had a Sharia beard at the time of the attack, and if the deputy who arrived on scene been trained by UTT, he would have been able to detect this. 

Hamed is not the first jihadi to pledge allegiance to ISIS on the phone with 911 operators before carrying out an attack in the name of ISIS.

On June 12, 2016 Omar Mateen walked into the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida and opened fire, killing 49 people and injuring 53 others.  Shortly after beginning his terrorist rampage, Mateen called 911 and identified himself to police on the calls, which start about a half-hour after he stormed the nightclub. “I want to let you know I’m in Orlando,” he states, “and I did the shooting.” Mateen placed three calls to 911. The last call he made ended around 3:25 a.m. In the transcript of the calls, Mateen asked the 911 operator to refer to him as  “Mujahideen” and “Islamic soldier.” Mateen told the operator that he had explosives and that he was wearing a vest like “what they used in France,” referring to the Bataclan theatre attack in Paris France on November 13 in which ISIS terrorists opened fire inside a concert hall, killing 130 people.

On the call Mateen also mentioned the Boston Marathon bomber: “My homeboy Tamerlan Tsarnaev did his thing on the Boston Marathon, my homeboy [unidentified name] did his thing, okay, so now it’s my turn, okay?”

The FBI has declined to provide more information about the extent of Hamed’s plans, including how and when he was radicalized, which mosque he was attending, and whether or not he was planning a larger ISIS attack in Arizona. Similarly, in the Mateen case, the FBI misled the public and failed to disclose to the media that Mateen’s father was serving as an FBI informant and that prior to the attack, Mateen was investigated by the FBI. During the trial for the terrorist attack, it was revealed that tge FBI stopped investigating Mateen when his father, who was an FBI informant and was given front row seats at a Hillary Clinton rally after the attack, told the FBI his son wasn’t radicalized.

According to Guandolo, “The suspect began throwing rocks at the deputy, and then drew a knife and began moving towards the deputy who shot the suspect. The suspect survived the shooting. The Sheriff’s Office charged the man with “aggravated assault.” When the MCAO heard the facts of the case and saw the suspect, they knew he is a jihadi, and now the individual is facing state terrorism charges based on legislation passed in Arizona after UTT began conducting training there.”

Above all, the move to treat Hamed’s case as a terrorism case instead of an aggravated assault case is largely due to the fact that the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office received proper counter terrorism training from Understanding the Threat. However, as the videos show, more training is desperately needed. It is unknown why an officer was sent outside to address Hamed alone, especially after Hamed declared to the 911 operator that he is a jihadist with ties to ISIS.

Sgt. Wells could have been killed.

Sheriff Penzone was contacted with a request for comment, but did not reply on time before publication.

The necessity for more counter terrorism training for law enforcement in the United States, as seen in this shocking body camera video, cannot continue to go unnoticed.

Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”

Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.



A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.

Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.

Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.

A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.

In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”

Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.

A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.

The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
