|If Palestinian Sirhan Sirhan's assassination of Bobby Kennedy(D) in 1968 wasn't one of the first, of many, domestic acts of Pali-Arab terrorism, then please explain to me why, when Cleo Allen Noel Jr., the U.S. Ambassador to Sudan, and his charge', George Curtis Moore, were abducted and executed by the PLO in March 1973, the Palestinian terrorists demanded that Sirhan Sirhan be freed?

...near the entrance of Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) headquarters in Langley, Virginia where two CIA employees were murdered and three others wounded. The perpetrator, Mir Aimal Kasi, shot CIA employees in their cars as they were waiting at a stoplight.
Kasi fled the country and was placed on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, sparking a four year international manhunt. He was captured by FBI agents in Pakistan in 1997 and rendered back to the United States to stand trial. He admitted that he shot the victims of the attack, and was subsequently found guilty of capital and first-degree murder, and executed by lethal injection in 2002.

New York City landmark bomb plot
The attacks were to take place on July 4, 1993, Independence Day in the United States.
The first target was the United Nations Headquarters; it was to be destroyed by a suicide bomber driving a truck bomb. Also to be destroyed by car bombs were the Lincoln Tunnel and the Holland Tunnel, two busy underground roadways in the city. The George Washington Bridge would be bombed next, as well the PATH tunnels between New York and New Jersey and the FBI's main office at the Jacob K. Javits Federal Building in New York City.

The note found in Ali Hassan Abu Kamal's pocket contains 'rambling, angry stuff,' and appears to contradict claims by the man's family that the shooting had nothing to do with politics, a high-ranking police source said last night. The letter also expressed anger at France and England for using Israel as 'an instrument' against Palestinians, and indicated that Mr. Abu Kamal planned to vent his anger at the Empire State Building, the source said.'"

Planned Attacks Around the Millennium Celebrations
U.S. customs, law enforcement, and intelligence officers successfully disrupted a series of attacks planned around the Millennium celebrations. On December 13, 1999, an alert U.S. Customs Inspector, pulled over an automobile driven by a 33 year-old Algerian, Ahmed Ressam. Ressam panicked and attempted to flee; he was caught, and inspectors discovered explosives in his car along with a map on which two airports in California and one in Ontario were circled, according to Through Our Enemies' Eyes (Brasseys, 2002), a book by an anonymous senior intelligence official. As Ressam was being arrested and questioned, planned attacks on tourist sites in Jordan were disrupted, and 22 Islamists were eventually convicted of terrorism charges. Ressam was convicted in the United States on terrorism charges in April, 2001.
Following these discoveries, the Intelligence Community and the FBI coordinated a worldwide disruption effort to disrupt other possible attacks. The effort involved dozens of foreign intelligence services that detained suspected radicals in the hopes of gaining confessions or at least keeping them off the streets or intimidating them into aborting any planned attacks. Louis Freeh, the former FBI Director, also related that FBI agents also arrested suspected radicals in the United States for minor violations (often linked to visa problems) and tried to disrupt planned attacks in the United States.
Following the disruption, the Intelligence Community clearly warned senior policy makers that the disruptions only bought time: they did not end the threat of future attacks. Of interest is another attack planned around the Millennium that went undiscovered -- the planned January attack on another Navy warship. The plot failed because the terrorists' boat sank, not because the Intelligence Community disrupted it, and a similar attack was carried out on U.S.S. Cole in October of 2000.
October 12, 2000 USS Cole attacked, 17 sailors killedMany terrorist attacks are dismissed as 'random acts' by 'mentally unstable' individuals and the MainStreamMedia contributes by denying the clear intent of these 'Sudden-Jihad-Syndrome' mass murderers.
In October 2006, a pro-jihad internet site published a Guide for Individual Jihad, explaining to jihadists how to fight alone. It recommended, among other things, assassination with guns and running people over. Is it possible that Sulejmen Talovic and some of these others were waging this jihad of one?

...the mainstream media stayed resolutely away from the case, with nearly everyone simply reprinting the identical Associated Press dispatch deep inside the newspaper. Television was apparently oblivious to the trial.
...he advised the men to leave the country and take up arms for the Taliban in its coming war with the U.S. "There is definitely a line crossed where someone is not just expressing views about our country, but encouraging, directing and enabling individuals to act on those words,"
...convicted... ...on all ten counts against him, including soliciting others to levy war against the United States and inducing others to use firearms in violation of federal law. The firearms convictions require mandatory life imprisonment without parole. Al-Timimi became the tenth member of the "Virginia jihad network" to be convicted...
October 3, 2001Oussama Kassir
...at approximately 4:00 a.m., the 29-year-old Croatian man used a box cutter to slash the neck of a Greyhound bus driver near Manchester, Tennessee. Igric and six other passengers were killed. Approximately 38 passengers were on board the bus at the time of crash, most of whom were sleeping.
He was a member of the 108th Brigade that was made up of Muslim and Croat soldiers and is one of the military units whose soldiers were accused of murdering civilians and destroying Serb Orthodox churches and desecration of Serbian cemeteries.
Igric had entered the United States in Miami in 1999 with a one-month visa, boarded the bus in Chicago.
December 2001James Ujaama
Prosecutors say Kassir and others wanted to set up the camp in Bly, Ore., to teach military-style methods so a community of Muslims could move to Afghanistan to fight or receive further training there
In announcing the suspect's extradition to New York from the Czech Republic, U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia said Kassir also offered bomb and poison-making tips on several Web sites.
Kassir pleaded not guilty Tuesday to counts that include conspiracy to kill, kidnap, maim and injure people in a foreign country; providing material support to terrorists; and distributing information related to explosives, destructive devices and weapons of mass destruction.
Kassir is accused of operating at least three Web sites that sought to recruit terrorists from December 2001 until his arrest Dec. 11, 2005, at Prague's Ruzyne international airport while flying from Stockholm, Sweden, to Beirut, Lebanon.
Authorities said the sites included such titles as "The Mujahideen Explosives Handbook" and "The Mujahideen Poisons Handbook."
In November 1999, prosecutors said, Kassir and Haroon Rashid Aswat were sent by Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri to establish the training camp. After two months they left the U.S., with Kassir complaining that there were too few men and he was not going to waste his time.
Authorities in Oregon have said the camp never materialized beyond a dozen people taking target practice and was abandoned for unknown reasons.
Kassir was born in Lebanon and moved to Sweden in 1984. He became a citizen five years later. He spent several months in prison in 1998 for assaulting a police officer and drug possession. A Swedish court jailed him for 10 months two years ago for illegal weapons possession.
Dec. 19, 2001Richard C. Reid
James Ujaama, a Muslim convert from Seattle, said he tried to set up the camp in Bly, Ore., in 1999 and notified a radical Islamic cleric in Britain that he and others were stockpiling weapons and ammunition in the United States.
He also admitted that between June 2000 and Dec. 19, 2001, he tried to raise money and provide other help to terrorists in Afghanistan.

January 5, 2002Jose Padilla
The authorities have said they do not believe that the teenager, Charles Bishop, had terrorist ties, and they have ruled his death a suicide. But the note, found in his flight bag and released today by the Tampa police, praised the terrorists who struck the United States on Sept. 11 and said more acts would follow.
''First of all, Osama bin Laden is absolutely justified in the terror he has caused on 9-11,'' Mr. Bishop wrote. ''He has brought a mighty nation to its knees! God blesses him and the others who helped make September 11th happen.''
The note said the United States would have to face the consequences of its ''horrific actions against the Palestinian people and Iraqis by its allegiance with the monstrous Israelis.''
Mr. Bishop, a flag bearer at school assemblies who had said he wanted to join the Air Force, wrote in the note, ''I will make you pay.''
He crashed a Cessna 172R into the 28th floor of the Bank of America building on Jan. 5, shortly after taking off alone without permission from a flight school at the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport, where he was a student. He refused to make radio contact with air traffic controllers during the 9-to-12-minute flight, the authorities said.

Mukhtar al-Bakri, Yasein Taher, Shafal Mosed, Yahya Goba, Faysal Galab, Sahim Alwan, Jaber Elbaneh, Kamal Derwish, Juma al-Dosari
Al-Bakri and five other men in custody flew to Pakistan and drove to Afghanistan in the spring of 2001. During their six-week stay, they were instructed in the use of Kalashnikov and M-16 automatic rifles and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, and taught to assemble explosives at Al Farooq camp near Kandahar.
The recruits heard al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden speak in person just a few months before he ordered the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in the United States.
The main recruiter of the Lackawanna Six, a Saudi born in Buffalo named Kamal Derwish, was killed in November 2002 by a CIA-launched Predator missile attack on al Qaeda operatives in Yemen.
A Derwish friend and al Qaeda recruiter who preached the religious obligation of training for jihad at the Lackawanna mosque, Juma al-Dosari, has been in custody at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, since his capture by U.S. forces near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

Food stamp fraud has taken on more sinister dimensions within the last year and a half. Last autumn, the FBI determined that the Somali asylee community in Seattle, set with food stamps and other forms of public assistance, was targeted by the Al-Barakaat Wire Transfer company, a wire transfer and hawala banking outfit with known connections to Al Qaeda. Al-Barakaat set up a storefront in Seattle and immediately went to work selling Qat, a mild narcotic popular with Somalis, and converting food stamps to money for Somalis to send back to their relatives in Somalia. The FBI believes Al-Barakaat skimmed tens of millions of dollars off of the proceeds of these two activities, and funneled it directly to Al Qaeda.
According to the testimony provided by New York City detectives to a U.S. Senate subcommittee in connection with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, corporate America has been victimized by precisely the same dynamic with coupon fraud, unwittingly funding terrorism by as much as $125 million annually.

A federal jury in Charlotte convicted Mohamad Hammoud, 28, of violating a ban on providing material support to terrorist groups by funneling profits from a multimillion-dollar cigarette-smuggling operation to Hezbollah.
The jury also found Hammoud, whom prosecutors described as the leader of a terrorist cell, and his brother guilty of cigarette smuggling, racketeering and money laundering. The two men, natives of Lebanon, were accused of smuggling at least $7.9 million worth of cigarettes out of North Carolina and selling them in Michigan. Hammoud was sentenced to 155 years in prison.

Falls Church, Va
The "paintball" Jihadis...
Randall (Ismail) Royer, an American convert to Islam, served as CAIRs communications specialist and civil rights coordinator; today he sits in jail on terrorism-related charges. In June 2003, Royer and ten other young men, ages 23 to 35, known as the Virginia jihad group, were indicted on forty-one counts of conspiracy to train for and participate in a violent jihad overseas. The defendants, nine of them U.S. citizens, were accused of association with Lashkar-e-Taiba, a radical Islamic group designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. Department of State in 2001. They were also accused of meeting covertly in private homes and at the Islamic Center in Falls Church to prepare themselves for battle by listening to lectures and watching videotapes. As the prosecutor noted, Ten miles from Capitol Hill in the streets of northern Virginia, American citizens allegedly met, plotted, and recruited for violent jihad. According to Matthew Epstein of the Investigative Project, Royer helped recruit the others to the jihad effort while he was working for CAIR. The group trained at firing ranges in Virginia and Pennsylvania; in addition, it practiced small-unit military tactics at a paintball war-games facility in Virginia, earning it the moniker, the paintball jihadis. Eventually members of the group traveled to Pakistan.
Five of the men indicted, including CAIRs Royer, were found to have had in their possession, according to the indictment, AK-47-style rifles, telescopic lenses, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and tracer rounds, documents on undertaking jihad and martyrdom, [and] a copy of the terrorist handbook containing instructions on how to manufacture and use explosives and chemicals as weapons.
After four of the eleven defendants pleaded guilty, the remaining seven, including Royer, were accused in a new, 32-count indictment of yet more serious charges: conspiring to help Al-Qaeda and the Taliban battle American troops in Afghanistan. Royer admitted in his grand jury testimony that he had already waged jihad in Bosnia under a commander acting on orders from Osama bin Laden. Prosecutors also presented evidence that his father, Ramon Royer, had rented a room in his St. Louis-area home in 2000 to Ziyad Khaleel, the student who purchased the satellite phone used by Al-Qaeda in planning the two U.S. embassy bombings in East Africa in August 1998. Royer eventually pleaded guilty to lesser firearms-related charges, and the former CAIR staffer was sentenced to twenty years in prison.

Before being sentenced, Ashqar delivered a nearly two-hour passionate statement describing the suffering of Palestinian people under the Israeli occupation and saying he would rather go to prison than divulge the secrets of Palestinian militants.
The only option was to become a traitor or collaborator and that is something that I cant do and will never do as long as I live, he told the court.

Amry, using a skimmer to obtain credit-card data from members of the health club, provided stolen names, Social Security numbers, and credit-card information of at least 30 people to Abdelghani Meskini, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy in connection with the plot to blow up Los Angeles International Airport in 1999. Using victims' names, Amry reportedly assisted Meskini in creating false green cards and Social Security cards. Meskini used the information to open bank accounts in New York, where he deposited counterfeit checks. Amry was not charged with knowledge of the terrorists' intentions in obtaining and using the stolen identities. On January 17, 2003, Amry was sentenced to 15 months imprisonment.

By the time the assailant was subdued by two other visitors and an Alexandria police officer, four elderly residents also were seriously injured, including two who were stabbed or slashed as they lay helpless in their beds in the facility's health care center. In all, six people, not seven as originally believed, were injured in the attack, including one who suffered a broken neck and another who needed 200 stitches, police said. Two victims remained hospitalized last night.
Alexandria General District Court Judge E. Robert Giammittorio yesterday ordered a member of the housekeeping staff, Mustafa Mohamed, 30, of Alexandria, held without bond on two counts of malicious wounding.
January 2005Jihad in Jersey City
The first pickup from The Islamic Center of Portland, Masjed As-Saber was Ali Khaled Steitiye who was picked up a month prior to the politically motivated announcement from the Portland Mayor and Police Chief for 'weapons' after a local gun shop I frequent turned him in...
36 Judicially approved wire taps allowed an intervention that caught the "Portland Seven" planning to slaughter civilians at Portland's Jewish Community Center.
Last September, Nelsons group protested the FBI arrest at a Portland airport of Sheikh Mohamed Abdirahman Kariye, for the illegal use of a Social Security number and the unlawful possession of government documents. (He later received probation after pleading to fraud charges). Kariye, in turn, is imam of the Portland Islamic Center-Masjed as-Sabr, an organization connected to the Islamic charity Global Relief Fund, which authorities have accused of links to Al-Qaeda. Last August, federal prosecutors released tapes of one of the Portland Seven telling how Kariye was financing his trip to Afghanistan and that the Islamic Center is
the only mosque to teach about jihad.The speaker is Jeffrey Battle, former client of the now-beleaguered lawyer, Brandon Mayfield.
The Portland '7' are Jeffrey Battle; Battle's ex-wife, October Lewis; Patrice Lumumba Ford; and brothers Ahmed and Muhammad Bilal

Hossam Armanious, 47, his wife, Amal, 37, and their daughters Sylvia, 15, and Monica, 8, had been bound, gagged, and their throats slit. Mohammad Zaki Amawi, Marwan Othman El-Hindi & Wassim Mazloum
... the investigators acknowledge that a relative of the victims had helped prosecutors in their case against lawyer Lynne Stewart, currently on trial in Manhattan for allegedly carrying messages for her imprisoned client, the blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, serving a life sentence for conspiring to blow up New York landmarks including the United Nations building.
...the Armanious murder occurred in what some nickname "Terror City" because of its history of Islamic extremist activity.
Jersey City gained this reputation after the first bombing of the World Trade Center, on February 26, 1993, which was carried out by a local terrorist cell. The van used in the attack was rented in Jersey City, the bomb was built in several Jersey City apartments, and the perpetrators frequented the Jersey City mosque presided over by Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman. Indeed, Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the 1993 attack, made contact with followers of the blind Egyptian sheikh upon his arrival in the United States. Through the mosque, he met Mohammed A. Salameh, Nidal A. Ayyad, and Mahmud Abouhalima, all of whom participated in the attack.
According to terrorism expert Steven Emerson, Alkhifa, a precursor to al Qaeda, had one of its main offices in Jersey City. Soon after September 11, in November 2001, a reporter from the Canadian daily National Post, Marina Jimenez, visited the Jersey City mosque undercover. In an article entitled "The radicalization of U.S. Muslims," she noted the stern warning posted in front of the mosque: "Those who do not belong to this Muslim community will be prosecuted for trespassing."

Two men accused of plotting behind prison walls to launch Jihad-style attacks on military sites, synagogues and other targets in 2005 pleaded guilty on Friday to conspiring to levy war against the United States.
Kevin James, a California State Prison, Sacramento, inmate who founded the radical group Jamiyyat Ul-Islam Is-Saheeh, or JIS.
This incident is the first in a series of incidents to come in a plight to defend and propagate traditional Islam in its purity, James allegedly wrote. We are not extremists, radicals, or terrorists. We are only servants of Allah.
So what "spot" was he intending to detonate? That's the million dollar question. He had 2 to 3 pounds of TATP, "the most unstable explosive known and the explosive of choice in the Middle East". Even a small amount can cause an explosion. 2 to 3 pounds. That's quite a bit of "mother of satan" for a lonely kid to use when he decides to "just quit living".

Among the files Irhabi007 distributed through this method were audio and video clips of Al Qaedas leadership, including Osama bin Laden, Ayman al Zawahiri and Abu Musab al Zarqawi.
In October 2005, Bosnian police arrested Mirsad Bektasevic, a 19-year-old Swedish citizen, and Cesur Abdulkadir, an 18-year-old Turkish national, in Sarajevo on suspicion of plotting a terrorist attack (neither has been formally charged). During a search of the apartment they shared, police found a suicide bomber belt, explosives, firearms and other military equipment.
Phone and e-mail records uncovered in the Bosnian raid also led British police to arrest Younis Tsouli, Waseem Mughal, 22, and Tariq Al-Daour, 19, in late October near London; all three were charged a month later under the UK Terrorism Act.
When a shadowy group of disaffected urban youth began talking in an Internet chat room in the fall of 2004 espousing anti-Western views, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service was listening, and when CSIS began monitoring the sites said to have been used by some of the 17 men and youths arrested on terrorism-related charges around Toronto Friday evening, the Canadian spy agency had heard enough to remain interested, and increased surveillance of the group. It was just four months after the surveillance began that two Americans from the Atlanta, Ga. area, Syed Haris Ahmed and Ehsanul Islam Sadeque, drew the attention of the Canadian spy agency.

He placed both hands on the steering wheel, stared straight ahead and barrelled toward the front entrance.
Now, his face was void of any expression. A store employee jumped out of the car's path. To drown out the man's yells, Warrayat reached over to his car radio and blasted Arabic music before crashing" into the Home Depot store in Chandler on Dec. 18, 2005. "At first, he wanted to wear a Palestinian flag, but later decided to place it in the trunk of his car, along with a copy of the Quran and a necklace."

In March 2004, Faller said, Chammout met with a confidential witness for the government and inquired about purchasing stolen military weapons. Then in the spring of 2005, Chammout wanted to purchase a gun with a silencer, Faller said.
In a conversation with an FBI agent posing as a hit man, Chammout inquired about killing someone, perhaps his estranged wife, Faller said. When the agent balked, Faller said, Chammout still gave the agent $1,000 for his trouble.
In September 2005, Chammout talked with the confidential witness about purchasing rocket launchers, Faller said. The next month, he wanted anti-tank weapons, the prosecutor said.
In February of this year, Chammout asked about missile systems that shoot down aircraft, Faller said. Chammout also told the confidential witnesses that these guys want the stuff. If [news] of it gets out, youre dead.

Chapel Hill, NC
In March 2006, a twenty-two-year-old Iranian student named Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar drove an SUV onto the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, deliberately trying to kill people and succeeding in injuring nine. After the incident, he seemed singularly pleased with himself, smiling and waving to crowds after a court appearance on Monday, at which he explained that he was thankful for the opportunity to spread the will of Allah. Officials here again dismissed the possibility of terrorism, even after Taheri-azar wrote a series of letters to the UNC campus newspaper detailing the Quranic justification for warfare against unbelievers, and explaining why he believed his attacks were justified from an Islamic perspective.

On June 6, British authorities arrested Syed "Fahad" Hashmi, a 26 year-old American citizen of Pakistani descent, in London's Heathrow Airport for his suspected role in aiding an al-Qaeda plot to attack targets in London and delivering military equipment and funds to radical Islamists in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
He was raised in the neighborhood of Flushing, in the Queens section of New York City. Flushing is one of New York City's most ethnically diverse neighborhoods and includes a sizeable Pakistani immigrant and South Asian Muslim community. Hashmi attended Robert F.

Galveston Daily News: "Assistant district attorney Xochitl Vandiver, who recommended [$60,000] bond after conferring with investigators, said the amount was higher than usual for that charge because of concerns for community safety.

Two pieces of information suggest his case is one of Islamist terrorism: (1) Washington having told officers, on being arrested, "It's OK, I'm federal, I'm with the Nation," presumably a reference to the Nation of Islam. (2) Washington's mother telling investigators her son had become "different" in prior months, talking about the Koran, saying he was God, and stating that he wanted "to go to Iran to become Muslim and become president."

He was charged with grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, reckless endangerment and unauthorized use of a vehicle. The New York Post described his escapade as "joyriding." It could be that, and nothing more, but it also might well be something more.

4 Whyislam and ICNA workers (coined by the media as the Houston Taliban) held jihad training camps on Islamic Society of Greater Houston property in Willis Texas north of Houston.
Kobie Diallo Williams felt remorse, came forward when questioned by the FBI and cooperated. Subequently, the remaining 3 members were arrested and charged. Unlike the others who are facing 10 years per charge, Mr. Williams will receive up to 5 years instead of a possible 35 years!
All of the Houston Taliban group are members of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and two of them (possibly three) are members of ICNAs Whyislam which is the organization they used to collaborate with each other according to news reports. Shah was also President of the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at UTD.
December 5th, 2006Derrick Shareef
...is accused of communicating via the Internet with someone he believed was a member of al-Qaida, according to an indictment handed down last year.
Mr. Reynolds allegedly offered to help commit acts of terrorism by "identifying targets, planning terrorism attacks, describe bomb-making methods, among other services," the indictment reads. He allegedly suggested targeting pipeline systems and energy facilities in the U.S.
Reynolds, a self-professed computer expert and convicted arsonist who once tried to blow up his parents, wrote online that he needed money to destroy the pipeline, and with it America's economy, court documents said.
Pretending to be a member of al-Qaeda, Rossmiller convinced Reynolds that she had $40,000 to contribute to his cause, documents said.
When Reynolds went to a prearranged spot to pick up the money, federal authorities arrested him.
"[President Bush is] hanging onto the press backing on the claim that since he waged war, no terrorist attacks have been successful, hence the war is just," Reynolds wrote in one e-mail,
"Americans will trample Washington to recall troops, and people will make a new government," Reynolds wrote to Rossmiller in one e-mail,
"It's true America has overstepped its bounds in invading Iraq," said one e-mail purportedly written by Reynolds. "Those serious enough to do something about it should e-mail ..."
Reynolds expressed his disillusion with the United States, saying his goal was to "leave this accursed land forever. It is not the land of the free but the home of the new dictators."

Four people have been charged.
Defreitas is a U.S. citizen with roots in Guyana.
Kadir, a former member of Parliament in Guyana, was arrested in Trinidad for attempting to secure money for "terrorist operations," according to a Guyanese police commander who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Kadir, a Muslim, left his position in Parliament last year. Muslims make up about 9 percent of the former Dutch and British colony's 770,000 population, mostly from the Sunni sect.
..the planning stages of the plot involved surveillance of JFK airport as well as scouting out US properties in Guyana for possible attacks.
"There are connections to the radical Islamic group Jamaat al-Muslimeen. One of our posts about the jihad in Trinidad relates some of the violent history of this group; in 1990, they bombed police headquarters, stormed the Trinidad parliament, and took the prime minister and his cabinet hostage in an attempted coup that killed 24 people.

July 17, 2007Large Cache of Weapons Discovered In Dallas Apartment Near Federal Building
The two are noteworthy because a few months ago, they were seen at Dallas Love Field, both dressed in camouflage pants under traditional Muslim robes, conducting what appeared to be surveillance, officials said.
...police searched the home on Wembley Road and found four explosive devices, one of which was sitting on a bedroom table.
The terrorism angle stems from Feb. 25, when the two women were spotted at Love Field acting in a way authorities found suspicious. Surveillance video showed one of them walking back and forth, apparently pacing off distances. When confronted, the women told officials they were looking for the Frontiers of Flight museum.
Two days later, the pair was spotted at the airport again. This time Ms. Al-Homsi, 42, was sitting on the hood of a car looking through binoculars at airplanes. Dallas officers stopped the car nearby, but the women refused to let police search it, authorities say.
The women also came under scrutiny after they were reported driving near the runways at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on July 4.

Federal sources tell CBS 11 News that law enforcement officers have confiscated a large cache of weapons found in an apartment near the federal building in downtown Dallas.
Police are still taking inventory of all the weapons seized. Among those discovered were two AK-47 rifles, an Uzi 9 millimeter submachine gun, a TEC-9 submachine gun, a 40 millimeter ordnance launcher, a handheld ordnance launcher, and about 500 rounds of ammunition.
Police seized the weapons even though they say it's possible for all of them to be legal.
Child pornography was also found in the apartment, which could lead to criminal charges.
Authorities tell us the tenant travels to the Middle East frequently and just returned from there this morning.
However, authorities say there is no reason to suspect terrorism as a motive.

Zorkot, a third-year medical student at Wayne State University, was allegedly armed with an AK-47 assault rifle and dressed in black clothing with camouflage paint covering his face when he was arrested Saturday in Hemlock Park.
According to police, Zorkot was observed attempting to leave the park in a black SUV after officers had received reports of a man carrying a rifle in the area. He was placed under arrest and is scheduled to undergo a preliminary examination at 9 a.m. Sept. 21 in 19th District Court.
Zorkot has also been charged with one count of possession of a loaded firearm in a motor vehicle and one count of felony firearm.

Northern Illinois University, IL
A possible motive has emerged for Northern Illinois University mass-murdering loser Steven Kazmierczak he might have been infected with the Muslim bug. A Muslim journalist named Rasmieyh Abdelnabi knew him personally...
Kazmierczak's friend Abdelnabi is a radical, who wrote pro-Palestinian articles, spearheaded hijab wearing and was a leader of the Wahhabi Muslim Student Union at NIU. Coincidentally, she wrote a piece on Muslim convert Derrick Shareef, who planned to shoot Jews at a synagogue just down the block from the NIU mosque.
None of this proves Kazmierczak was motivated by Islam. But if the media were as curious as it is dhimmified and politically correct, this would make an interesting lead.

A 21-year-old Clearwater man, Benjamin Baines, was arrested at Tampa International Airport this weekend after security personnel found a box cutter in a hollowed-out book, "Fear Itself", authorities said.
Officers found books in the backpack titled "Muhammad in the Bible," "The Prophet's Prayer" and "The Noble Qur'an." He also had a copy of the Quran and the Bible.
Several sheets of paper in the backpack included rap lyrics that referred to police, narcotics, weapons and killing.

April 22, 2008Tarek Mehanna
A Fairfax County police sergeant was sentenced yesterday in federal court in Alexandria to two years' probation for his admission that he checked police databases for someone who was the target of a federal terrorism case.
Sgt. Weiss Rasool, 31, initially faced up to six months in jail, but federal prosecutors urged U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry R. Poretz to consider as much as a year of jail time after Rasool took a lie-detector test last week and "was not fully compliant" with the test procedures. Prosecutors also said in a motion filed with the court that FBI agents "do not believe that he has been truthful."
In June 2005, when federal agents had a Fairfax man under surveillance, the man apparently asked Rasool to check the license plates of three vehicles he thought were following him. Rasool's lawyer described the man as a member of Rasool's mosque.
The three vehicles were undercover FBI vehicles, according to a letter from the FBI filed in court yesterday, and Rasool's message "likely alerted the subject of the FBI investigation which had a disruptive effect on the pending counterterrorism case."
The target was arrested in November 2005, then convicted and deported, according to court filings in Rasool's case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeanine Linehan said that the target and his family were already dressed and destroying evidence at 6 a.m. when agents arrived to make the arrest, indicating that they had been tipped off.

Statements that Tarek Mehanna allegedly made to the FBI two years ago in the midst of a terrorism investigation came back to haunt him last weekend, when the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy graduate was arrested as he was about to board a Boston flight to start a new job overseas.
Mehanna, 26, who was living in a sprawling house in Sudbury with his parents, is charged with lying to the FBI in December 2006 when questioned about the whereabouts and activities of Daniel J. Maldonado, a former Methuen resident who was suspected of training at an Al Qaeda terrorist camp to overthrow the Somali government.

Betim Kaziu, from Brooklyn, became radicalized in part by watching internet videos featuring Anwar al-Awlaki, one of al Qaeda's most high profile commanders, as well as fighters from Somalia's al Qaeda affiliate, al-Shabaab, according to the FBI.
Kaziu was convicted of several charges including conspiring to commit murder overseas and conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.
According to the government's account, in 2009 Kaziu and another man, Sulejah Hadzovic, traveled from New York to Cairo, Egypt, where they attempted to acquire automatic weapons.
From there, Kaziu considered traveling to Somalia to join al-Shabaab but instead went to Albania where he recorded a martyrdom video of his "last few moments." From Albania, Kaziu traveled to Kosovo where the FBI said he planned to carry out attacks against U.S. troops, but instead was arrested in September 2009. By then, he had already purchased a ticket to travel to Pakistan.

Tarek Mehanna, 27, from Sudbury, Massachusetts, had been previously indicted in January 2009 for making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other officials in connection with a terrorism investigation, the U.S. Justice Department said in a news release on Wednesday.
Mehanna and the co-conspirators had multiple conversations about obtaining automatic weapons and randomly shooting people in a shopping mall, and that the conversations went so far as to discuss the logistics of a mall attack, including coordination, weapons needed and the possibility of attacking emergency responders, the Justice Department said.

CAIR helped finance the legal appeal of Muslim cop-killer Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, who is named in the Detroit criminal complaint as the spiritual leader of a radical group that calls for violent action to establish a sovereign Islamic state within the U.S.
Abdullah served together with at least two CAIR figures in the governing body of the Muslim Alliance in North America, or MANA, a national network of mosques, Muslim organizations and individuals "committed to work together to address certain urgent needs within the Muslim community."
Former CAIR national advisory board member and current fundraiser Siraj Wahhaj is a MANA leader along with Ihsan Bagby, a longtime member of CAIR's board of directors.

Fort Hood, Texas
A shooting rampage Thursday afternoon at the Army's Fort Hood in Texas killed 11 and wounded 31 before the gunman, Major Malik Nadal Hasan was shot and taken into custody. At least six months ago, Hasan came to the attention of law enforcement officials because of Internet postings about suicide bombings and other threats, including posts that equated suicide bombers to soldiers who throw themselves on a grenade to save the lives of their comrades.

A male passenger on an international flight bound for Detroit Friday tried to blow up the plane with an explosive device...
February 13th, 2010Yes... this is the second mention of Syrian born Kimberly al-Homsi who was picked up July 17th 2007 scouting the location.
A bomb scare that shut down Loop 820 for five hours Saturday night was no hoax and involved a woman who is no stranger to authorities, federal agents said.
Three explosive devices were found inside a pickup that had fled police, said special agent Tom Crowley of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

A taxi cab driver plowed slowly into a crowd on a sidewalk in San Diego's busy Gaslamp District early Saturday, injuring more than two dozen people, police said.
..."some victims don't believe it was an accident," and bystanders were so enraged when it first happened that they dragged Daly out of his cab and started kicking and punching him -- not behavior one usually sees after an accident. Daly, for his part, came out of the cab clutching a pair of scissors, and apparently tried to attack the club manager with them -- again, not behavior one usually associates with someone who has just caused a terrible accident and is contrite and horrified.

Every terrorist act prevented is a defeat because the apologists immediately claim that terrorist would not have committed the crime and was 'entrapped'.

WORLD ISLAM STUDY ENTERPRISEThe world of CAIR
The World Islam Study Enterprise (WISE) was established as an "Islamic think tank" in 1991 by four professors at the University of South Florida (USF): Sami Al-Arian, his brother-in-law Mazen al Najjar, Khalil Shikaki, and Ramadan Abdullah Shallah. Sami Al-Arian
Sponsored events that featured radical Islamic speakers, including Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman, who was convicted in connection with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing
Was shut down in 1995 by federal authorities; all the principals are either in jail, deported, or in terrorist cells in the Middle East
Another WISE board member, Tarik Hamdi, was known by U.S. authorities to have personally met with Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan in May 1998, giving him a satellite telephone and battery pack to facilitate the latter's orchestration of terrorist activities. Khalil Shikaki
During its four-year existence, WISE sponsored numerous public events such as lectures given by: Islamic Group leader Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, who was later convicted in connection with the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center; Rashid-el-Ghanoushi, a Tunisian who was considered a terrorist by the U.S. State Department; and Hassan Turabi, who is generally considered the real leader of the terrorist Sudanese government. According to Oliver Revell, the FBI's former top counterterrorism official, "anybody who brings in Hassan Turabi is supporting terrorists."
An FBI raid of WISE offices yielded no fewer than 500 videotapes of Al-Arian's conferences in mosques across the United States, where he raised funds for PIJ. At these events, Al-Arian proudly accepted introductions as "the President of the Islamic Committee for Palestine
the active arm of the Islamic Jihad Movement." The videos further showed a number of individuals at these rallies praising the killing of Jews and Christians. The WISE raid also turned up a letter written by Al-Arian in Arabic praising a Palestinian Islamic Jihad suicide bombing that caused the deaths of 19 Israeli soldiers in 1995.
The FBI further learned that Al-Arian had connections to the blind sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, mastermind of the first World Trade Center attack in 1993; to Hamas official Mohammed Sakr; to the high-ranking Sudanese terrorist Hassan Turbai; and to Islamic Jihad co-founder Abdel Aziz-Odeh.
On December 6, 2005, Al-Arian was acquitted on eight of the seventeen counts against him, including "conspiracy to murder and maim people abroad," which was the most serious charge. The remaining nine counts ended in what was considered a mistrial, as the jury was deadlocked on them. In his summation, Al-Arians attorney conceded that Al-Arian was an operative for PIJ. A reporter covering the trial summarized: The trial exposed the professor as having been deeply enmeshed in the internal workings of Palestinian Islamic Jihad
Shiqaqi is the brother of Fathi Shiqaqi, the founder of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which is responsible for killing over 100 people in Israel. Fathi Shiqaqi was assassinated by Israel in 1995. Ramadan Abdullah Shallah
Khalil Shiqaqi now owns the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research and is an associate professor of political science at Bir Zeit University.
When Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Fathi Shaqaqi was assassinated by an Israeli agent in 1995, Shallah was named as his replacement.Mazen Al-Najjar
In 1991 University of South Florida Arabic language professor Mazen al Najjar was a founding member along with Sami Al-Arian, Khalil Shikaki, and Ramadan Abdullah Shallah of the World Islam Study Enterprise (WISE). WISE was an Islamic think tank that sponsored events around the United States featuring speakers like Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman, who was later convicted for his role as the mastermind of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. WISE was shut down in 1995 after some of its founders were arrested for ties to terrorism or were deported.
Al Najjar was arrested on secret FBI evidence that he was supporting terrorism, but was released years later when the U.S. government would not reveal its sources. In August 2002 he was deported to the United Arab Emirates for a visa violation.
Al Najjar appears to be an un-indicted co-conspirator of Sami al-Arian
CAIR's employeesIt's happening right here in Dearbornistan, Michigan: Currently Islam-based terror supporting groups operate right here in the USA:
To sum up the state of CAIR's legal play: two of its associates (Ghassan Elashi, Randall Royer) have been convicted on terrorism-related charges, one (Bassem Khafegi) convicted on fraud charges, two (Rabih Haddad, Bassem Khafegi) have been deported, and one (Siraj Wahhaj) remains at large. Randall ("Ismail") Royer
...an extensive web of ties between CAIR on the one hand and Global Relief and another shuttered "Islamic charity," the Holy Land Foundation.
... a convert to Islam and a Muslim activist who had fought in Bosnia and trained with Lashkar-e-Taiba. Royer, a St. Louis native, was at the Sept. 16, 2001 meeting and had a long history of encouraging fellow Muslims to train with Lashkar, which the United States designated a terrorist entity in December 2001. Siraj Wahhaj,
...pled guilty in January 2004 to a two-count criminal information charging him with aiding and abetting the use and discharge of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, and with aiding and abetting the carrying of an explosive during the commission of a felony.
Royer was sentenced today to 20 years in prison. Judge [Leonie] Brinkema sentenced him to serve 10 years in prison on both counts, and the sentences are to run consecutively. In addition, he was sentenced to three years of supervised release.
...was named as one of the "unindicted persons who may be alleged as co-conspirators" in the attempt to blow up New York City monuments nearly a decade ago.Ghassan Elashi (a founding board member of CAIR's Texas chapter), Basman Elashi, and Bayan Elashi
Ghassan and four of his brothers were convicted on July 7, 2004 of supporting terrorism by sending seven high-tech shipments to Libya and four to Syria (the five still await sentencing). And today, Ghassan and two brothers were convicted of supporting terrorism by sending money to Mousa Abu Marzook, one of the leaders of Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group. Ghassan and one brother (Bayan) were found guilty of all 21 counts they faced, including conspiracy, money laundering and dealing in property of a terrorist. Another brother (Basman) was convicted of three counts of conspiracy and acquitted of other charges.Rabih Haddad, executive director of the Global Relief Foundation
In 1988, Haddad and his wife, Salma al-Rushaid, moved to Pakistan. While there, Haddad went to work for Mekhtab Al-Khidemat (MAK), an organization co-founded by Osama bin Laden and Abdallah Azzam (bin Ladens mentor) Bassem Khafagi
In December 2001, at the time of the GRFs closure by the U.S. government, Haddad was taken into custody. He was found to have overstayed his temporary tourist visa, which was granted to him in 1998. Haddad was considered a flight risk, since at the time of his arrest, authorities discovered a firearm and several boxes of ammunition at his residence. He spent 19 months in prison, much of it in solitary confinement.
Haddad also worked as a fundrariser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
In July 2003, Haddad and his entire family were deported by the United States to Lebanon.
...he pled guilty in a Detroit federal court to two counts of bank fraud and one count of visa fraud is connected to Rafil Dhafir, the Syracuse-area oncologist accused of illegally sending money to Iraq via a charity called "Help the Needy." Specifically, Khafagi and Dhafir jointly "owned a Sir Speedy printing franchise in Ann Arbor, Mich., until 1998." The connection between the two one an Islamist and the other accused of being a Saddam Hussein agent appears to be their affiliation to the Michigan-based Islamic Assembly of North America. A major article on this organization in the Washington Post quotes court papers describing it as engaged in the "dissemination of radical Islamic ideology, the purpose of which was indoctrination, recruitment of members and the instigation of acts of violence and terrorism."Rafil Dhafir
On February 10, 2005, Dhafir was found guilty on 59 of the 60 federal charges against him, ending a 15-week trial. The prosecution successfully argued, among other things, that Dhafir had embezzled over half a million dollars from Help the Needy for his own purposes. The Justice Department also contended that little of the more than $4 million raised by his organization over nine years went to serve the people of Iraq.
Dhafir's organization, Help the Needy, is affiliated with the Islamic Assembly of North America (IANA), a group which Federal investigators allege funnels money to activities supporting terrorism. Dhafir was IANA's chairman at one time. IANA co-founder Bassem Khafagi has pled guilty in federal court in Detroit to two counts of bank fraud and one count of visa fraud. HTNs web master, Sami Omar Al-Hussayen, was a Saudi doctoral student at the University of Idaho who also ran websites linked or belonging to the IANA and posted fatwas from Salan Al-Awdah and Safar Al-Hawali, both supporters of suicide attacks against the U.S. In addition, HTN gave over $42,000 to the Global Relief Foundation and the Benevolence International Foundation, both of which have been designated global terrorist-support organizations by the U.S. government.
