Why Is Apple Protecting The 2 Muslim Terrorists Who Killed 14 Americans Last Year?

She ordered Apple to create a software that would allow investigators into Farook’s phone, which may contain information about his Dec. 2 shooting spree that left 14 people dead. Farook and his co-shooter, his wife, were killed in a gun battle with cops after the attack.

Apple is fighting the FBI over a court order requiring the tech giant to unlock a terrorist’s iPhone — but it appears the company had no problem breaking into at least 70 other protected smartphones.

Dozens of other times, Apple had no problem at all complying with judges orders to unlock iPhones of suspected criminals. So why all of a sudden is Apple refusing to comply? Could it be because the phones in question belong to 2 Islamic terrorists Syed Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik who gunned down 14 innocent people at a Christmas party last year? Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Apple refuses court order to unlock IPhone of San Bernardino Muslim terrorists:

The California-based tech giant Apple unlocked dozens of iPhones at federal investigators’ requests between 2008 and 2015, a prosecutor argued last year.  The October refusal bewildered New York prosecutors, who claimed the iPhone maker “complied” with at least 70 other requests to unlock suspects’ phones, Motherboard reported at the time. Each request was made under the All Writs Act, a 1789 statute that grants federal courts broad power to issue “necessary or appropriate” writs.

“Apple had an established procedure to routinely take any of these requests, comply with them, processing them,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Saritha Komatireddy said in court.

In defending its refusal, Apple said unlocking a secure phone would undermine its customers’ trust

“Apple is saying it does not want to do this. It does not want to be in the business of being a method by which customer data is disclosed,” an Apple lawyer said.

Presenting Apple’s 5 darkest secrets including stressed out factory workers exposed to dangerous iPhone chemicals at Foxconn, the real Steve Jobs, tax loopholes that allow Apple to hide billions, the mysterious origins of the Apple logo, and Apple’s secret worldwide police force out to hunt down leaks and missing prototypes.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Sheri Pym issued an All Writs Act for the Farook case on Tuesday without giving Apple a chance to respond.

She ordered Apple to create a software that would allow investigators into Farook’s phone, which may contain information about his Dec. 2 shooting spree that left 14 people dead. Farook and his co-shooter, his wife, were killed in a gun battle with cops after the attack.

Shortly after the demand, Cook broadcast its objections to the order in a fiery letter to customers. The CEO cited privacy concerns as his chief complaint against the demand — and he did not mention any of the previous 70 court-ordered unlockings. source

    This is really dumb. Apple is not protecting two dead muslims. They have an obligation to their customers. The government had their shot at keeping them out and did not. If they can access their phone data, and everyone else’s, they will still not do anything but collect data. If they start utilizing Genesis 9:6, we’ll talk. Otherwise, forget it. I’m sick of federal screwballs counting everybody’s bowel movements.

    The 70 phones that apple unlocked, was that before their latest I-phone release? If it was, they probably don’t want the Feds to have their latest encryption because the Feds are no longer trustworthy. If they could unlock it without revealing their encryption it would be different. The judge order Apple to write a program to unlock the phone is what I understood from the story. Once they have that, the Feds could unlock any I_Phone.

    Nobody knows if those alleged terrorists are guilty. We have had false flags and hoaxes for years. The Boston Marathon bombing and sandy hook were staged. This is all about further tearing down our constitutional rights. That is why it is being publicized. They want people to give up their rights out of fear. Ben Franklin said if we trade our freedom and liberties for security, we deserve neither and will have neither. Government is already collecting our phone calls and monitoring social media. They can lock us up indefinitely without cause. When there is nothing left, we will be the terrorist.

    • MaFrhi

      TWR. I agree!!! The govt already knows when it’s next false flag event will occur! Sheesh!

  • Jeremiah

    Well God is a just God, there will be a day where they will want justice but they will they will get silence.

  • I am glad I do not own a IPhone from Apple!! I own only and old iPod Touch though!!

    My Cell Phone is Android through Consumer Cellular!!

    The Apple CEO is a left-wing liberal and homosexual!!

    Please PRAY for our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America and Israel-Yisrael Everyday!! “Pray Without Ceasing.” ( 1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV )!!

    Am Yisrael Chai, Yeshua Jesus Christ Adonai forevermore!!

    Love Always and Shalom Everyone,

  • Apple computer is a satanic corporation. If you look at their logo (the forbidden fruit with a bite out of it) how much plainer could it be that Apple computers logo is the glorification of sinning against God. Give the FBI what they need to defeat evil. There are many in the FBI and US Government agencies that are true to the Gospel of Jesus.

  • Gary Myers

    I don’t think Apple is doing this to protect Muslims. A vary wise man once said, Anyone who is willing to give up freedom for security deserves neither.
    Do you want the Fed’s in your phone?

  • Johan

    sigh
    This is not about Apple protecting any muslims.
    The phones that Apple opened before where opened by Apple and then given to the Police/FBI. This time FBI does not want Apple to open the phone, they want Apple to create a software that creates a backdoor so that FBI can open the phone themselves.

    The problem here is that if Apple comply to this, it would not be difficult for the FBI to open any Apple iPhone they want with the same software. That means millions and millions of phones all around the world would be vulnerable to a special software that soon probably would be leaked to internet for anyone to take care of and THAT would be catastrophic to personal integrity and security.

    Apple, together with Google, Facebook and Twitter is actually opposing big brother in this case and it has nothing to do with the phones owner being a muslim.

    Yes, these companies often give information to the Police/FBI but that is after court orders and the tools to do it stays within the company, they do not give out any back doors for the government to use.

    This is one of the more important fights against the government in the last 10 years and it’s very important that FBI will not win this round. Because IF they do, ALL other companies will have to comply to the same methods, giving the government back doors to every phone of any brand.

      Thank you,common sense…….again THANK YOU. You should have wrote the article,seriously,smh.

    • KY

      Thanks for the common sense. It is a rare commodity sometimes and lately even more rare. I know their are legitimate conspiracies but everything is not, unless it would be on the US Gov’s side. I said the same thing in an earlier post.

  • MG

    IN MY HONEST OPINION, I REALLY DON’T THINK ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND, IN FRONT OF ALL WATCHING, WOULD OPENLY HERE IN THE TERRORIST WATCH CAPITAL OF THE WORLD…PROTECT A FREAKING ISLAMIC MUSLIM! I SUPPOSE REGARDLESS OF WHO IS USING MY SOFTWARE OR PLATFORM, I TOO WOULD NOT RELEASE A WAY FOR THE GOV’T TO JUST TRAMPLE ON ANYONE’S PRIVACY OR READ THEIR MAIL; SO TO SPEAK. WE USE TO BE GUARANTEED PRIVACY BACK IN THE DAY. A TECH THAT WOULD GIVE THE GOV’T THE ABILITY TO PRETTY MUCH LABEL ANYONE A TERRORIST AND ALTER DATA, ETC WELL, THAT’S THE ORWELLIAN STATE NIGHTMARE THAT WOULD COME CRASHING DOWN ON AMERICANS, BUT JUST GIVE IT TIME,….APPLE WILL EVENTUALLY GIVE IN….AND YOU WHO ARE WORRIED CAN RELAX; MEANWHILE, GET READY TO HAVE YOUR OWN MAIL READ. ENJOY!

  • Jes

    Wakeup!!! The terrorists and the information in the phone are not the issue! There are laws that protect private companies, including anti-slavery laws (according to Judge Napolitano of Fox news) that forbid the government from trying to force a private company to work for them simply because they want them to. The government cannot demand Apple or any other company develop a product exclusively for the government at the company’s own time and expense and labor. The government simply does not have that kind of authority, and neither does the judge have the authority to try and compel them to do it. Apple is right, and they should stand their ground!

    I’m sorry but knowing the facts and real story makes all the difference instead of being a statist cheerleader if you want big brother your being fooled no Christian should agree with allowing government to monitor our lives I pray for all of you my brothers & sisters http://rare.us/story/apple-is-fighting-the-government-to-protect-your-privacy-and-it-goes-way-beyond-your-iphone/

  • George

    The government wants them to put a permanent back door into the phone so they can access it whenever they feel like it. It would also open the door to hackers which they could use to access your phone. No thank you mr. government man..

  • KY

    Geoffrey,
    Are you reading these comments? Apple is no saint but this has nothing to do with protecting terrorists.

    • Apple can SAY all they like, but 70 requests approved and the one for the phone of a MUSLIM terrorist and they suddenly want to “protect our data”? Noooooooooooooooooooo way.

      • Johan

        They are not saying now to give out information from the phone, read about it. Apple say that they will comply if they get a request about extracting the data from the phone and give the FBI. But FBI has not requested this. What FBI are requesting now is that Apple should create a software and give the FBI so that they themselves can open up the phone. But this is not the only thing they will be able to do, they will be able to open up ALL iPhones and iPads in the world with this software.
        If Apple would give them this kind of software that means that everyone who owns and Apple product will be unsafe from “big brother” FBI.
        And if Apple would be forced to do this, then all other companies would also need to do it.

        As I said, Apple has said that they will happily give FBI the data information from the phone that they want if they ask, but FBI has said that they do not want Apple to touch the phone.

        Hey Mr. Grider, I don’t know if you’ll see this comment or not, but look up Eric Jon Phelps on YouTube. He wrote an 1830 page book called “Vatican Assassins” and it’s well documented. Since I’ve followed him, crazy, otherwise non-sensical domestic and world events make much more sense. (Warning- he does have some wacky views about a few things, but don’t let them hinder you from hearing him out). Love your website brother! Keep up the good work!

      • brian

        Eric Jon Phelps on YouTube. Author of “Vatican Assassins”. Look him up.

      • KY

        Geoffrey,

        I KNOW you are a strong willed man and do not like to back up from ANYTHING you publish, but honestly, as Johan commented below, Apple said they will give the FBI the data, but that is not good enough for them. The FBI wants a program that will allow them to crack the I-phone. That will allow them to CRACK ANY I_PHONE! That is the real issue. Stop defending this silly story you have published, it is wrong.

      • KY

        Geoffrey Grider, This is the complete story on Apple.

  • robimac

    Can’t really say. Perhaps they are working with Obamagov just like google.

  • Alfred

    I glad to see majority of the comments sides with Apple. The government wants the ability to access all iPhones.

  • Alfred

    I would to add the is one comment also. As usual Donald Trump is pandering to the voters as usual. He wants everyone to boycott Apple. how ridiculous can you be?

  • The real issue that Apple had a problem with, was that the FBI wanted the software that would be developed. If they had the software, they would be able to open up information on phones on a continuous basis at their discretion. Who is our government? Our leadership cannot be trusted with software that would be capable of disclosing bank accounts, contacts, and other personal information. Remember Hitler? During World War II, Germany used censorship, policing of its citizens, and the access of personal information, to threaten and coerce people. Sound familiar?

    • KY

      Exactly right Dawn.

    • Psalm 27:1 “THE LORD IS MY LIGHT AND MY SALVATION; WHOM SHALL I FEAR? THE LORD IS THE STRENGTH OF MY LIFE; OF WHOM SHALL I BE AFRAID?” Why is a satanic corporation protecting Islamic terrorists?

      • KY

        KIM,

        Read the facts again. THEY WILL GIVE THE FBI THE INFORMATION THEY NEED TO PROSECUTE THE TERRORISTS. They won’t give them the key to all the I-Phones. If they do, all phones will be compromised by the FBI. The FBI can not be trusted anymore than the CIA, NSA or the Obama regime for who they work.
