WASHINGTON Another Pakistani journalist is reporting receiving another threat this one from a senior Taliban leader warning all Muslims to leave the U.S. in anticipation of a major terrorist attack before the end of Ramadan.
The head of the Islamabad-based al-Quds Center reported receiving an audio message from Mullah Masoom Afghani urging U.S. Muslims to get out of the country "because Allah's punishment would fall on America in the month of Ramadan."
Muslims are observing Ramadan this year Sept. 24 to Oct. 23.
Jamal Ismail is the journalist who received the message. He formerly worked for al-Jazeera. He told the News of Pakistan that he received a phone call Oct. 5 from Afghani.
"Afghani said he was speaking from somewhere in Kandahar province," reported Ismail. "In it, he advised Muslim residents of America to get out to escape harm because the U.S. could face big attacks in the month of Ramadan."
Ismail said it was the first time Afghani, who is head of the pro-Taliban cleric's consultative council and former ambassador of Afghanistan to Pakistan, had ever sent such a message.
"Afghani didn't say that it was a dream," recalled Ismail. "It appeared that he strongly believed that America was going to face punishment at the hands of Allah."
Last month, WND reported the new al-Qaida field commander in Afghanistan called for Muslims to leave the U.S. particularly Washington and New York in anticipation of a major terror attack to rival Sept. 11, according to an interview by another Pakistani journalist.

Good question. Here is what I see happening. It's early Saturday afternoon and the season is winter. At hundreds of Wal-Marts nationwide, dark skinned people wearing coats walk in, find the greatest concentration of people in the store - that would be the checkout area - doff the coat revealing a bomb vest and summarily yank a lanyard. The bomb vest goes off killing the terrorist and several dozen people in the checkout area. Multiply this by, say, 400 stores and you have a major event.
This is only one of many possibilities, of course. I believe that we are in for a serious season of terrorism, and particularly if we find ourselves another Democratic administration and do a wholesale retreat from Iraq and Afghanistan. Read "retreat" as "cut and run."
The most obvious flaw in your deception is that you seem to assume that the nukes were in Afganistan. Anyone should be able to see that's nonsense. What value would a nuke in Afganistan have on the world market?
Oh, to dream...
I agree with you. Especially if Dems take over.
I agree. With most of your scenario--the muzzies are not innovators, for the most part they go with what works.
Car bombs and bomb belts will be the delivery mechanism, but they need maximum shock value--that doesnt come from DC or LA, that comes in the heartland. Imagine your scenario (GOD FORBID) at the Mall of Am in MN. Day after Thanksgiving.
Only one problem, there'd be no living muslims left in this nation that night, because the retribution would be a bi*ch..Bush's peaceful religion hijacked rhetoric would not keep the masses at bay...
They'd better hurry; ramadan ends in 3 days.
And don't let the door hit you...
Al Qaeda did the Spain bombings just before their election, with a far different result than they would achieve here if they tried the same thing. Do you think they are smart enough to know that if they attacked us prior to the elections the GOP would win in a landslide?
Your Walmart scenario is very possible, and I would hate to see the widespread hysteria it would cause.
it was a sarcastic comment because i was calling williams claim that OBL has 68 suitcase nukes and that Williams claimed that they were tested in Afghanistan.
that suggests that they were there if you believe what williams says but i dont because it contradicts the person who made the original claim saying that it was a dirty bomb, not a nuke
Idk, I'm a bit worried
Jihad muslims don't care about their own lives much less the lives of muslims in America...or anywhere for that matter.
Therefore, I find this rumor incredible.
This is the second Pakistani journalist to say this, the other ones name is Mir, he was on Fox & Glenn Beck show talking about it.
Hysteria, no. Revenge pogrom, yes. Many people underestimate "mob mentality". This was the reason that the media covered up the DC sniper shootings. The local law enforcement knew that it could cause a backlash. The simmering hate and resentment against all things Islamic is at a full boil. Check out the White House Iftar Dinner thread, if it is still around.
I think in 2004? There was a web posting with picture of mushroom cloud over NYC. ALSO, for the first time in months, the "This is Not a Test" test came on my TV the other day. Hadn't seen them in decades until after 9/11. They were at least a few times a month for a few years, then zip. Now, they're back. I remember them vividly from my childhood (I am 42).
AQ Khan supposedly visited Afghanistan. Pakistan will NOT allow us to interview him. AQ is nothing if not surprising. I wonder about these specific reports, but am not the type that believe that since no nukes have gone off, AQ doesn't have them. IF Pakistan's coup had succeeded, AQ would have had nukes AND missiles (maybe not ICBM, but )...
You know, FR and the world are two different things.
