TOLEDO USED CAR DEALER INDICTED ON TERRORISM CHARGES/TOLEDO BLADE

TOLEDO USED CAR DEALER INDICTED ON TERRORISM CHARGES, WASSIM MAZLOUM, OWNS TWO USED CAR LOTS IN TOLEDO, "CITY AUTO SALES & RAM AUTO SALES", HE AND 2 OTHERS WERE GOING TO ASSIST IRAQI TERRORISTS TO KILL US SOLDIERS.

Mr. Amawi is a Jordanian citizen who was living in Toledo; Mr. El-Hindi was a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Jordan who was living in Toledo, and Mr. Mazloum is from Lebanon but a legal permanent resident of the United States.

Their citizenship and religion — each is Muslim — again put the focus back on a community still living with the fallout from the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks

Gee, these two fellows went through the proper bureaucratic channels to come and stay in this country legally. If illegal aleins deserve amnesty, shouldn't we give these Muslims the same consideration? /sarcasm

Even used car dealers deserve better than to be smeared by virtue of sharing the same profession as these rabid jihadis....

I can't help but laugh at the headline...though I know this is serious.

their ad....

"Amawi's used cars....the best for blowing up in your next terrorist raid!"

" Why destroy a new car in your next Terrorist Bombing?
Come to Amawi's Used Car Lot and get a great deal on a Used car. Customized with bombing wires at no extra cost!"

Caught a few more. I wonder if this arrest stems from the arrest in Missouri a couple of days ago with the stolen cars?

This is a black mark on the reputation of used car salesmen everywhere.

Mosques and Islamic Centers Around the World

Islamic Center of Greater Toledo

Perrysburg, Ohio, USA

Now this was from a site called islamicfinder.org.

It sure is a big mosque there but I dont recall it looking like this. I thought it had a gold colored dome. It can be easily seen off I-75.

They are linked to "KindHearts" the organization the government shut down in February. They also threatened to kill President Bush.

Jordanians own MOST of the Gold Star chili chains in the tristate area here in ohio.

Most of our Marathon gas stations are owned by either Jordanians or Pakistanis! Who you supposed to trust when enemies are everywhere you look ?

Disgusting...

How about this.... Any friend family or associate of a terrorist will have any visa, green card or immigration case immediately revoked. Any one turning in a known terrorist and is not implicated in any illegal activities will have their application walked in.

I expect for the same reason the State Department swoops down and boots out these decrepit, broken down 80+ year old "Nazi-prison-camp-guards" who probably in their mid-20s when the war ended and who have been living as peaceful, law abiding, small business owning, tax-paying citizen of the U.S. for the past 50+ years.

If illegal aliens deserve amnesty, why not these shuffling, blurry-eyed, trembling old men?

FBI investiates former Iraqi soldier with stolen cars

06:10 PM CST on Friday, March 31, 2006

(KMOV) - Deputies were called to this remote area of southern Washington County to check out "suspicious activity."

Nazar Malla

The deputies in found Nazar Malla, 36, with a couple stolen cars and a u-haul truck.

But as they started investigating his past they found out he's a former soldier from the Iraqi army and can't give them a good reason why he's in Missouri.

It happened outside Irondale in southern Washington County.

The sheriff said when deputies arrived that night they found Malla about 50 yards off the road by himself, but there were four vehicles. When they asked him how that could be the sheriff says his answer just didn't make sense.

"He would tell one story one time than the next time you'd ask him the same question and it would be something totally different," said Sheriff Kevin Schroeder.

Malla is from Dearborn, Michigan, but when deputies checked out the cars they found two were stolen, one out of Michigan, another out of St. Louis.

"We received information talking with him he was an Iraqi citizen, he served in the Iraqi army in their artillery and then became a naturalized citizen of the united states," said Schroeder.

For deputies red flags seemed to be going up everywhere when they started processing the stolen cars.

Schroeder says Malla had wired about $25,000 through Jordan to Iraq, but it wasn't clear who was getting the money.

"Once we started getting all these facts together, the fact that vehicles were stolen, he's in the u-haul truck in the middle of nowhere, and the wire transfers, we immediately notified the FBI," added Schroeder.

Malla was charged with "vehicle tampering" and bonded out.

The police in Dearborn, Michigan, said Malla's record includes a few minor offenses, mostly traffic violations.

The FBI is now handling the investigation.

(I hope they have the tracking chip stuck up his ass)

"He would tell one story one time than the next time you'd ask him the same question and it would be something totally different,"

Interesting training he received. Maybe it works in Iraq.

That d'd thing has been there for a long time, too. I'm thinking more than 2 decades. It's clearly visible from satellite photos, like at Google maps.
