Posted on 09/24/2007 11:20:42 PM PDT by Yaco
While Democrats prepare witless campaign slogans blaming Republicans for millions of children not protected by health insurance, al Qaeda's blatant threat to exterminate 2 million American kids remains unheeded. And it will likely continue to be, notwithstanding mounting evidence that there exists no peril on Earth our young need greater protection from today than merciless jihadist monsters.

PING and prayers!
“Dots like the seventeen full-sized yellow school buses reported stolen from charter schools, business schools and private bus companies in Houston, Texas, over the past few months. Connect to that and previous disturbing stories the fact that thousands of school bus radios have also been stolen (2000 in California in 2005 alone), and the images shaped should be triggering earsplitting alarms throughout all branches of media and law enforcement.”
“He then handed the ball off to the waiting Dr. Jasser, by asking:
“They want something so horrific where they are raping our children, killing them, torturing them, stuffing [them] out the windows, having the whole media see, because they want us to do what?”
And Jasser ran with it, explaining how these inhuman actions are intended to further divide the world into Muslim and non-Muslim. Our anticipated rage response to such unprecedented horror, predicts the doctor, would likely result in hate-crimes against Muslims, which al Jazeera would broadcast without context to 80 million people throughout the Middle East world.
Thor, who believes outraged Americans’ reactions may well include “lynching Muslim people in the streets and burning mosques,” adds:
“They want to reduce us to animals like them so that they can get the Islamic world behind them and finally get the holy war that they want kicked off and ignited.”
“Last week we learned of nine postcards sent to different schools in Marion County, Florida, each with a crudely hand drawn cartoon depicting a building exploding and spewing bodies to the ground. Each card also contained the handwritten caption “Jihad Boom” and the words “9-11 ? 10-10.” Several schools in the same county had received written threats just a week earlier promising attacks on the September 11 anniversary.”

Terrorists Coming To A School Near You (4-3-07)
“Floor plans for schools in Virginia, Texas and New Jersey have been recovered from terrorist hands in Iraq, he notes. Videotapes confiscated in Afghanistan show al-Qaida terrorists practicing the takeover of a school.”
The Terrorist Threat To Our Schools Part 1
In-depth article with links to a series of seemingly unrelated news stories that all point to the potential threat.
Note to FBI: Remember Canadian Terror Plot & Beslan School Massacre
By Michael Cutler
The FBI has alerted law enforcement officials across the United States that they have information that aliens under recent investigations, with ties to extremist organizations have been involved with buying school buses and/or obtaining licenses to drive school buses - but they say that there is nothing to be concerned about!
I find a couple of sentences in the article I have attached below to be particularly worrisome. Consider this sentence:
“Asked about the alert notice, the FBI’s Rich Kolko said, “There are no threats, no plots and no history leading us to believe there is any reason for concern,” although law enforcement agencies around the country were asked to watch out for kids’ safety.”
I would like to know if Mr. Kolko has been reading newspapers.
Last summer a terror ring was taken down by the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) in Ontario. I included the text of the New York Times account of the arrests of those suspects below.
One of the leaders of that suspected terror cell was a school bus driver. By driving a school bus, an individual who is intent on recruiting young people who might be vulnerable to swaying to the terrorist ideology, has easy “legitimate” day to day contact with many young people with whom he comes in contact a regular basis.
School bus drivers also have easy access to the schools as well as the young students. If we are to consider some recent history, consider what occurred in August 2004 Beslan in Russia when terrorists attacked a school and 323 hostages were killed in the effort to end the siege.
Among those who died were 156 children who were slaughtered. Hundreds of additional, badly injured hostages were taken to hospitals. Here is the CNN account of that terrorist attack in Russia.
So I wonder to what “history” Mr. Kolko was referring.
Additionally, school buses would make attractive conveyances for terrorists for another reason, these vehicles are relatively large and ubiquitous.
They are virtually invisible because they are commonly seen throughout the United States. They can be used for surveillance purposes and can also be used as weapons because of their size which would make them ideal for packing with explosives.
The other sentence in the article that I find to be interesting is:
“But Homeland Security and the FBI “have no information indicating these individuals are involved in a terrorist plot against the homeland,” it says. The memo also notes: “Most attempts by foreign nationals in the United States to acquire school bus licenses to drive them are legitimate.”
While it may well be true that the FBI was unable to develop information of an immediate terrorist plot, especially one that involved school buses, I am not certain how individuals who are associated with extremist groups are who seek to acquire school buses and school bus drivers’ licenses can be then described as “legitimate.”
While the organizations that these individuals are associated with are not named and their connections with these organizations have not been described, the fact that the FBI was sufficiently concerned that they issued an alert certainly causes me to be concerned.
So the obvious question is what does the term “legitimate” mean? Does it mean that the applications were filled out completely and all of the supporting documents were provided?
Does it mean that when these individuals who had come under investigation did not declare that they intended to use school buses in conjunction with a terrorist plot?

Thanks for all the good info.
The American public needs to know that they have all but promised to kill 2 million of our precious children and grandchildren as retribution for the Muslim children they say we killed.
Most also don’t realize that when a statement of an impending attack is made by OBL or Zawahiri, their intent is to carry that out ... and they feel we have been sufficiently warned. In their twisted perversion, they think this satisfies their moral and ethical obligations.
Dear Lord, protect us.
I alway pray every day regarding the jihad, STARWISE.
I pray for the protection of children often as I do for
all the children dying daily due to abortions.
God does hear our prayers.
As for jihad, you should be concerned, but you also
need to remember: Jihad is everyday for jihadis. If
they have the means to carry out an attack and a
window of opportunity; they will do it. They are
focused on their goal.
To sum it up, jihad is evil.
That is why I always say, “Jihad — another day.”
Somehow, I don’t see America coming together on this one. No doubt the Clinton machine has their playbook ready for this one, and if it happens, they’ll somehow blame Bush and the GOP in hopes of sweeping to victory, similar to how they used the OKC bombings and the 168 killed there to get Juanita’s probable rapist re-elected.
bump for later reading
If inflicting terror is the purpose then attacking school children would be an obvious target for al Qaeda. However, the sight of a burning yellow school bus and the burned and mangled bodies of children would probably cause a backlash against Muslims in the US.
Thanks for the ping
Last week, there was a scare in a school in the town just north of me. Surrounding towns, mine included, closed their schools last Thursday in response to this threat to “blow out” schools in the area.
We all need to wake up and fast.
WOW .. frightening, but then it didn’t make the MSM’s agenda, did it? Never heard that on the nightly news.
Parents .. be aware .. be ready. God help us.
It was on the NYC local news but no, I didn’t see it go national. “Nothing to see here, move along.”
But then how can we expect the MSM (that doesn’t seem to believe the millions killed by abortions matter) to see this particular threat for what it is?
God help us indeed. It will only be through His mercy and not because we deserve it.
That’s just what the apparent motive of al queda is .. to spark such outrage and such a violent backlash against all muslimes, that Americans will start viciously attacking them.
And that’s what it is said they want ... to get a global holy war propelled.
