American Al Qaeda Leader To Bush: 'We Will Be Waiting For You'
Native Californian Al Qaeda Leader Makes Threats Against Bush Middle East Visit

American Al Qaeda leader Adam Gadahn told his followers to welcome Bush "with bombs and traps" upon his upcoming visit to the Middle East this week.
"The occupied territories are awaiting their first visit by the crusader Bush and the mujahideen are also waiting for him," said Gadahn, a California native and now an Al Qaeda spokesman.
Gadahn is the star of the latest al Qaeda propaganda video to be posted online by the group's media wing, As Sahab.
In his newest dramatic gesture, Gadahn tore up his U.S. passport in protest of the imprisonment of fellow al Qaeda followers Abu Zubaydah, John Walker Lindh and Sheikh Omar Abdul Rahman.
"I don't need it to travel anyway," he said afterwards.
Gadahn made reference to November's Annapolis conference of Middle Eastern leaders, saying it was a gathering of Bush's "loyal puppets." He said the United States has been "unmistakably defeated" in Iraq in Afghanistan and has lost the battle for hearts and minds "in spectacular fashion."
"They're about to hand the whole mess over to local proxies who, if they haven't already, shall soon rue the day they sold their souls and religion to the American devil," Gadahn said.
Gadahn also made reference to Pakistan, but didn't mention the assassination of opposition leader Benazir Bhutto, indicating the video may have been made before her death. Rather, he said Al Qaeda "continues to strike the ruling regime" there as it fights against President Pervez Musharraf's "farce of elections."
Gadahn, who is under federal indictment for treason, is believed to be hiding in Pakistan. He left Orange County, Calif., almost 10 years ago for Pakistan and has been a regular feature in al Qaeda videos, at first wearing a mask, but he has been appearing unveiled for more than a year now. He often threatens to continue to target the United States at home and abroad.
Despite his rejection of U.S. citizenship, Gadahn made reference to the mortgage crisis in the United States, saying that it was triggered by right-wing fanatics trying to usher in the "end days."
It would be fun to set them up with a false itinerary.
Sooo? What's the problem?
Is he wearing a tin foil hat? It looks like one.
"Deadeye" Dick Cheney!
Full Disclosure: Why is this asshat wearing a Pizza Hut tablecloth on his head, anyway?
His parents must be so proud.
Somebody drop a bomb on that guy already.
WILL THE MOSSAD POOOOOOO-LEEEEZE DO AN EICHMANN ON THIS TURD??????
He also said something about Woody Allen, but I couldn’t quite catch what he said....lol (REALLY)
To hide his tinfoil hat?
Didn't "Osama" in his last "audio" wax poetic about the USA mortgage crisis? It probably troubles all serious Al Qaeda leaders. Methinks it be little Adam behind the Osama mask at this point. How long will our CIA audio experts have to keep pretending Osama is still alive, and "authenticating" his audiotapes?
Bet ya he voted ‘Rat in his past!
His parents where California Liberals herding goats (no kidding!)!
He said he has a woody for Allah......
“Thanks for tearing up your passport, Schmuck; it was taking us too long to do it for you through bureaucratic channels.”
I am reasonably sure that, like John Kerry, he tore up someone else’s passport, just in case things get HOT in Pakistan and he has to move.
Remember, it is OK for them to LIE to the dhimmi’s.
Ever notice how pudgy these Islamist `leaders’ get?
Zarqawi, Mookie, Nasrallah, Gadahn, Khalid Sheets Mohammed, all look like the U.S. Zionist Infidel Menace didn’t cost them too many meals at all.
Anyway, somebody please do him like Zarqawi, where infidels get to watch him die, and he knows it.
I’d trade some prison time for the chance to beat the snot out of this little pr*ck.
Of course, there isn’t a jury outside of SF bay that would convict anyone dealing with little Adam Pearlman.
Evidently the islamic dork was home-schooled in California by rather unconventional sorts. There was something on Freerepublic about him at another time that touches on that, among other things. See http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1264801/posts
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
Aren’t many people I’d like to see caught, but Adam Gadamn is one of them.
Put it on line let them all see it, let everyone see it.
Background and childhood
Gadahn’s Jewish paternal grandfather, Carl Pearlman, was a prominent surgeon and on the Board of Directors of the Anti-Defamation League; his paternal grandmother, Agnes Branch, was an editor for The Chronicle Christian Newspaper.
Gadahan’s father, originally Phil Pearlman, grew up in Orange County, California. He was involved in the counterculture movement at the University of California at Irvine, and before Adam’s birth became a self-styled religious Christian. He and his wife Jennifer changed their name to Gadahan, after the Biblical warrior Gidon or Gideon.
Gadahn was born in Oregon and raised and homeschooled through high school by his parents on an isolated farm in Southern California where they raised goats. He played Little League baseball and participated in Christian homeschool support groups. As an adolescent he became very involved in the Death metal community, making contact with fans and musicians through alternative magazines. During the summer of 1993, he formed his own one-man band called Aphasia. Gadahn contributed music reviews and artwork to a zine called Xenocide.
In 1995, at age 16, Gadahn moved in with his grandparents in Santa Ana, California, where he worked in a computer store and explored the Internet.
Conversion to Islam
While living with his grandparents, Gadahn described himself as having a “yawning emptiness”, and he sought ways to fill that void. He explored Christianity on the Internet, radio, and locally, but later said that he found evangelical Christianitys apocalyptic ramblings to be paranoid and hollow. 
In 1995, at age 17, Gadahn began studying Islam at the Islamic Society of Orange County. Members of Gadahn’s study group were young fundamentalists who “targeted the mosque’s chairman, Hitham ‘Danny’ Bundakji,” whom they referred to as `Danny the Jew,` for his practice of “wearing Western clothes and being overly friendly with Jews.” 
Gadahn converted to Islam later that year, and shortly thereafter posted an essay to the USC website describing his conversion, entitled “Becoming a Muslim.”
According to his parents, Adam was arrested and convicted of assaulting his former mentor Haitham Bundakji in May 1997, he served two days in jail, but his failure to do 40 hours of community services leaves a warrant for his arrest active.
Move to Pakistan
Gadahn moved to Pakistan in 1998, where he married an Afghan refugee and maintained intermittent contact with his family.
In Pakistan during 2003, Adam was asked by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to participate in a suicide attack in Maryland, but Adam decided against it citing “he had recently married and his wife was pregnant.” However, a CIA official added that: “Gadahn participated in a number of face-to-face brainstorming sessions with Mohammed.”
“...your failure to heed our demands and the demands of reason means that you and your people will - Allah willing - experience things which will make you forget all about the horrors of September 11th, Afghanistan and Iraq and Virginia Tech”.
A pro choice endorsement if ever there were one.
Mostly, though, Gadahn sounds angry. In 2005, with his head wrapped in a black turban and his face covered with a black veil, he warned, We love nothing better than the heat of battle, the echo of explosions, and slitting the throats of the infidels. Last July, while discussing civilian casualties in Iraq, he said, Its hard to imagine that any compassionate person could see pictures, just pictures, of what the Crusaders did to those children, and not want to go on a shooting spree at the Marines housing facilities at Camp Pendleton. In a feature-length Al Qaeda documentary that was released on the Internet on September 11, 2006, Gadahn referred to the United States as enemy soil, and celebrated the September 11th hijackers as dedicated, strong-willed, highly motivated individuals.
Too many wedgies made this pu$$y turn. Azzam, email me and I will give you my address. I would love to meet you in person.
Michael Moore’s brother?
Time is running out, Gadahn said, waving an arm up and down. So make the right choice before its too late and you meet the dismal fate of thousands before you.
Gadahn may be the first Al Qaeda operative to lace a religious threat with a reference to Monopoly. (If you die as an unbeliever in battle against the Muslims, youre going straight to hell, without passing Go.) Or to adopt the bluster of a barroom pundit. (Whoever takes over for Bush probably wont have the guts to bring the troops home.)
You guys are hysterical....LOL
Adam Gadahn’s grandfather was a popular, good-natured urologist who loved golf and the violin. He taught his children to respect art, nature and religion.
Adam Gadahn’s father rebelled against his father’s way of life. He changed his name and moved from a life of privilege in Orange County to a sparse goat farm in Riverside.
Gadahn was fresh off the goat farm and living back at his grand- father’s Floral Park home in the mid-1990s when he found Islam and soon after joined a cell of fundamentalists.
They eat quite well.
You should have seen the pudgy Arab muslims at the buffet lines in Saudi, Bahrain, and the UAE!
Best to keep your hands and feet away from their mouths.
Take two uber-leftists, have a kid, and here’s what you get.
Adam Gadahn was born Adam Pearlman in Orange County. His father, acclaimed 60s underground psychedelic musician Phil Pearlman, was the one who chose the name Gadahn. Phil Pearlman founded the West Coast group Beat of the Earth, a band often compared by critics to their East Coast counterpart, the Velvet Underground. Though this part of the story might have caused a few in middle America to pause, Californians are accustomed to living with leftover 60s culture, from the Heal the Bay movement to the Krishna festivals on Venice Beach. So its not strange that a gifted 60s counterculture hero, the son of a Jewish urologist and a Christian housewife, would change his name to Gadahn shortly after getting married because (according to a former band mate) they wanted a name that meant nothing. Also not strange was that they moved to a farm in rural Riverside County and took up the profession of raising and humanely slaughtering goats for market. Equally not strange is that Adam and his siblings were home-schooled and raised without running water and electricity. Eccentric, West Coast, out there in la la land, but not strange.
I wonder if they even know?
said that he found evangelical Christianitys apocalyptic ramblings to be paranoid and hollow.
And he liked it so much he looked for something even more paranoid and hollow!
Yep - looks like a tin foil hat.
Oh, he looks real healthy, don’t he?!?!
Mummy and Daddy must be so proud of their creep of a son.
Does this guy’s family still live in the USA?
Bwaahaahaa!!!MPThat's too funny!!!
I think so.
