Al Qaeda Targets Our Schoolchildren
American Thinker ^ | September 25, 2007 | Marc Sheppard

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.

From article

“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.”

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.

http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/europe/09/04/russia.school/index.html

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.

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.

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.

In the end, if their scenario of ever escalating violence comes to pass, then they may get what they want (Final conflict) but with different results.

If the true and complete might of the western world were to be unleashed against the Muslim world with the aim of stopping their violence no matter what the cost, the Arab world would cease to exist. No matter how many of us they killed they would be annihilated in the end.

The facts are that with just our nuclear submarine fleet the entire Arab world could be reduced to rubble in a matter of hours and they have absolutely no way to stop it from happening.

The jihadi's goal is to provoke a war between "the world of peace" (the Mohammedan world) and "the world of war" (the rest of the world). "The world of peace" will only see images of American Mohammedans being attacked.

Doing some research, found this article from 2004

~~~~~~~~~

SPC auction buyers aroused suspicion

College officials notified the FBI of men interested in buying surplus vehicles.

NORA KOCH, JOHN MARTIN and RICHARD DANIELSON
Published October 23, 2004

The two men who walked into Scott Weaver’s office trying to buy surplus vehicles wore T-shirts and jeans and were very polite.

One was 45 to 50, balding, spoke with a slight accent and introduced himself as a car dealer. He said his name was Abdalla, Weaver said. His companion seemed to be in his late 30s, had glasses, a full head of dark hair and said little or nothing.

The two men appeared to be Middle Eastern.

“They said they were interested in vehicles,” said Weaver, St. Petersburg College’s supervisor of institutional services. They didn’t say why.

While Abdalla Deiab didn’t buy the college’s surplus ambulance or three other vehicles, public records suggest he may have acquired a similar vehicle elsewhere.

A 1997 Navistar 4700 - commonly used as an ambulance or utility truck - was registered in April to Deiab’s former address on Shelley Street in Clearwater, according to state records. It is the same address he wrote on the bids he submitted to SPC for a used ambulance, two former police training cruisers and a large truck.

The Navistar was registered under Mintulla Inc., a defunct corporation. Deiab was not an officer in the company, but he did apply for a fictitious business name similar to Mintulla Inc. It was Mintulla International.

State records do not show who owned the Navistar before it was registered at Deiab’s Clearwater address or what it is used for now.

Deiab, 51, could not be reached for comment Friday.

SPC officials, Deiab’s former employer and two of his previous landlords said this week the FBI has questioned them about Deiab and the other men who visited SPC to look at surplus equipment.

College officials said an FBI agent mentioned a suspicion that the men might have associates with contacts to Al-Qaida.

An FBI spokeswoman won’t say if the agency is investigating.

Deiab lived in the condominium on Shelley Street for less than a year, said Panagiotis Thomaidis, who owns the unit. Fatima Bari also lists the condominium as her address on her Florida driver’s license.

Public records show Deiab and Bari, 43, were married in November 2001 in Volusia County. On their marriage record, Deiab listed his birthplace as Egypt. His wife, who could not be reached Friday, was born in Morocco.

In May, Deiab rented a place at the Coral Cove apartments at Belcher Road and Cleveland Street. He rented a ground-floor apartment for $545 a month, plus utilities.

At the end of June, the apartment complex sued to evict him, contending that he missed June’s payment. A process server could never find him to deliver the notice of the suit.

Deiab also has lived in Daytona Beach, where he was the residing manager at the Peter Pan Motel for four or five months, said former owner Basel Dasouki. He said he has not seen Deiab for about two years, since he sold the property. He said he neither has nor wants anything to do with Deiab.

After the motel closed, Deiab moved to a one-bedroom place in the Kingston Apartments, said owner and manager Glenn Atchana.

He said Deiab had a truck he used in a small moving company and paid the $425 monthly rent in cash for about a year until he suddenly moved out with no warning. Deiab still owes him money, Atchana said.

The FBI contacted him about a month ago asking about Deiab, Atchana said.

“He was poor,” he said. “He didn’t have a lot of money. He used to always ask me how he could get credit to go buy something.”

Deiab bid on SPC’s ambulance and other vehicles in a surplus equipment auction on Aug. 6. It was earlier that week that Weaver recalls the pair of Middle Eastern men coming to his office.

That same week, four men described by college officials as Middle Eastern went to the college’s warehouse in Tarpon Springs and took photos of surplus vehicles for sale, Weaver said. It was unclear whether Deiab was one of the four men.

The following week, Weaver and his staff began to wonder.

By then, officials realized Deiab had submitted the winning bids for four pieces of equipment.

College officials said staff members thought about the men’s appearance. They considered what they were bidding on. And they recalled seeing news about suspicions that terrorists might try to acquire ambulances. Around that time, New Jersey officials were worried that ambulances might be used to carry bombs.

Concerned, college officials contacted law enforcement.

The four men did not return to campus after the bid opening, Weaver said, but his staff talked to Deiab several times by phone about coming to pick up the vehicles. They also were talking to the FBI and the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. At various times, Deiab told SPC staff he was out of town, Weaver said. Once, he said he was in Tallahassee at an auction. Another time, he said he was in Atlanta.

College officials made an appointment with Deiab to pick up the vehicles on Aug. 26. Before that meeting, FBI personnel installed what they said were tracking devices on each of the vehicles Deiab had bid on, Weaver said.

“I think their plans were to follow them,” he said.

But Deiab never showed up.
