Skip to comments.O.C. man pitches al-Qaida [Adam Gadahn]
Posted on 09/03/2006 8:17:27 AM PDT by madprof98
Gadahn, who turned 28 Friday, grew up on a goat farm in rural Riverside County, where he and his three siblings were home-schooled by his parents. His father, Phil Gadahn, grew up in Orange County, the son of Dr. Carl K. Pearlman, a respected urologist and leader in the medical community from his arrival in 1949 until his death in 1998.
In the mid-1990s, Adam Gadahn moved to his grandparents' home in Santa Ana. He found Islam on the Internet, converted at a mosque in Garden Grove and leaders there say he fell in with a group of Islamic fundamentalists. The FBI says Gadahn ultimately trained with al-Qaida in Afghanistan and has worked as a translator.
Gadahn also relates a story, which he said was set in suburban California and clearly involved him, that he said described the hypocrisy of the West. One day when he was with his "brothers" in a shopping center parking lot, a man sped by in an SUV and shouted, "Worship Jesus, your Lord!" Gadahn said, according to SITE's translation.
"The gas-guzzler, cell phone, and college diploma notwithstanding, one couldn't help but be reminded of Abu Jahal in the seventh century abusing the Prophet while he prayed because he worshipped God alone and rejected the idols of the Arabs," Gadahn said.
On the video, Gadahn addressed American soldiers, saying, "You know that if you die as an unbeliever in battle against the Muslims, you're going straight to Hell without passing 'Go.'

Islam must make people age, he looks older than 28.
He probably has 3 or 4 wives that he can beat anytime he pleases. I'm sure that he couldn't score any hot OC babes prior to his submission to the Moon God. .
Maybe this is a causative factor? I understand that goats are irresistable to certain populations.
He grew up on a goat farm....
Is this whole terrorist thing about goats?
RECAP AND UPDATES
Al-Zawahiri and Gadahn
That just doesn't have the ring of truth to it. I think this goat-boy is lying to the infidels.
If this is the only piece you've seen about his background, how do you know what values, if any, he learned from his parents?
Pearlman??? He must have a jewish grandfather!!!
Goat farmer? Hmmm....I was thinking Pan ("I stink, therefore I am" ~Tom Robbins) was the goat god, not allahaha.
What American is he going to persuade? Or are Americans the target audience? Are Muslims in America or worldwide the target audience? "See, even the Americans know that we are right."
Or is this an example of Mohammed's rule to offer the enemy a chance to convert to Islam, before attacking? Or is this guy an undercover Rovian agent spouting Democrat talking points in order to discredit the Democrats before the election?
His real name is Adam Pearlman. He was a Jew before he converted to Islam and changed his name.
Goats are like training-wheel wives for terrorists. Where they wind up living, the women are just as hairy, smelly, and of similar (if not identical) disposition.
Small wonder those guys are so willing to kill themselves.
Note: "In the mid-1990s, Adam Gadahn moved to his grandparents' home in Santa Ana. He found Islam on the Internet, converted at a mosque in Garden Grove and leaders there say he fell in with a group of Islamic fundamentalists."
It was while living with his grandpa ( who I assume grew up in an Islamic country before moving here in 1949 ) that he "found" Islam
Wait a minute: father named "Pearlman", son named Gadahn?
