Just two days after the eighth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington DC by Al Qaeda, the terrorist organization has released a new message from its leader, Osama bin Laden.
The 11 minute, 19 second message, released on jihadist sites, was announced with a banner showing the United States flag as a backdrop, and showing the New York City skyline featuring the twin towers of the World Trade Center still standing.
According to the banner, this message was directed at the American people. It makes numerous references to “al Bayt al Abayad”, Arabic words for the White House, as well as to US President Obama, and former President Bush and Vice President Cheney.....

Transatlantic plane bomb plotters jailed for life
LONDON Three British Muslims were sentenced Monday to life in jail for plotting to blow up transatlantic airliners with liquid bombs in Al-Qaeda-inspired suicide attacks on the scale of September 11.
Judge Richard Henriques said the plot was “the most grave and wicked conspiracy ever proven within this jurisdiction”, as he passed sentence at the top-security Woolwich Crown Court in southeast London.
“The intention was to perpetrate a terrorist outrage that would stand alongside the events of September 11, 2001 in history,” he said.....
Probably still gathering ACORNS in anticipation of the looooonnnnng winter coming on. Or maybe our guys are getting closer and he had to move to another cave. Hard to find cozy accomodations where every cave opening draws a Daisy Cutter, just in case.

Al-Qaida Again Resorts to Racist Name Calling, Labels Obama “Kunta Kinte”
The Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF)—an Al-Qaida online propaganda center officially responsible for distributing communications from Shabaab al-Mujahideen in Somalia and other armed jihadi factions—has released a new message from the notorious “Rakan Ben Williams.” Williams is a purported underground Al-Qaida operative living inside the United States who offers occasional commentary about American counterterrorism policies and the prospective of renewed terrorist attacks in the U.S.
Thanks for the ping Vel.
Thanks for the pings, ladies. Think I’ll avoid Denver for a while.

Muslims to Mount Massive March on Washington, DC
The Last Crusade ^ | Sept 16, 2009 | The Last Crusade
Islam is coming to America the same way Christianity came to Rome... whether they like it or not. We talk about the Islamic State of North America by 2050... The people of Hamas and Hizbullah are good people; they dont deserve condemnation, they do good things. - Imam Abdul Musa of Washington, D.C.
Inspired by Obama
Islamic Coming-Out Party Set for September 25
This could be a most interesting day to monitor.
Washington: Al-Qaeda is trying to seek nuclear secrets from Pakistan and it remains as dangerous as ever, Special US Representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan Richard Holbrooke said Wednesday.
"Al-Qaeda is still there in the region, ever dangerous and publicly asking people to attack the US and publicly asking nuclear engineers to give them nuclear secrets from Pakistan," Holbrooke said at a reception hosted by the Congressional Caucus on Afghanistan at the Capitol Hill.
Indonesia: police claim to have killed terrorist Noordin Top
17 Sep 2009
Police in Indonesia claim to have killed the fugitive terrorist mastermind Noordin Mohammad Top during a raid in Java. Elite counter-terrorist police stormed a house in on the island killing four people after a nine-hour siege.
They said later that among the dead was Top, the leader of a splinter group of Jemaah Islamiyah, a group allied to al-Qaeda that was behind the major bombings in Bali and a string of later attacks including the blasts in the capital, Jakarta, in July.
Poice have claimed before to have killed Top before, only for himto re-emerge and organise new attacks. Anti-terrorist police have redoubled their efforts to capture Top since they mistakenly thought he was killed in a raid that ended a 17-hour siege last month. Malaysian-born Top, 41, leads a group called Al-Qaeda in the Malay Archipelago, and has long been at the top of the Indonesia's wanted list. A veteran Islamist and the most notorious terrorist in south-east Asia, he is the group's recruiter, strategist and financier.
A new organization dedicated to fighting what it sees as an encroaching Islamic takeover of the U.S. is set to launch later this month with a gathering in Washington, D.C. - on the same day as a massive Muslim prayer rally in the U.S. capital.
The Stop Islamization of America (SIOA) group has declared its mission to be educating Americans "about the threat that Islamic doctrine and those who support it present to our freedoms, and the future of our democracy and country." The organizers call themselves "scholar warriors/ideological warriors in the cause of American freedom and Constitutional government," as well as in "the defense of... our society of liberty, knowledge, and human decency."
SIOA believes that political Islam is opposed to American values of "freedom, tolerance, or human rights." They seek to raise the issue of what they call "brutal, misogynist" Islamic law and jihad in America, because "tolerance for ideologies that are opposed to our principles of individual freedoms and our Constitution is indefensible," the group declares in its online manifesto. A recently-released film, The Third Jihad, warns that radical Islam is working on a non-violent, cultural takeover of the United States.
"We are now in a new phase of a 1,400-year-old jihad against the kafirs (all non-Muslims everywhere); we are not prepared to meet the threat," SIOA says. "[I]gnorance about Islam, its doctrine and purposes is a moral and ethical failure whose consequences can be nothing short of national extinction." The official launch of the SIOA is slated for September 25, 2009, at an as-yet unknown venue in the U.S. capital. The timing and location appears to be far from coincidental.
A massive Muslim prayer gathering is planned for for the same day in front of the Capitol building. Spearheaded by the Elizabeth, New Jersey Dar-ul-Islam Mosque, organizers are expecting 50,000 people to attend the first-of-its-kind national event. The gathering will be limited to prayer, according to Hassen Abdullah, president of Dar-ul-Islam.
"Al-Qaeda is trying to seek nuclear secrets from Pakistan and it remains as dangerous as ever, Special US Representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan Richard Holbrooke said Wednesday."
UPDATE: Missing engineer found dead in apparent suicide
More Glendale and Phoenix Local News

UPDATE: Sept. 17, 2009:
Glendale police confirms to 3TV that Cornelius Hardy was found dead in his car in Yavapai County. Sheriff’s deputies say they are investigating further but have determined his death was suicide.
I just don’t believe this seems awfully funny to me.
Doesn’t make sense that he would leave his daughter home alone sleeping on the sofa. I don’t see any mention yet of a suicide note or possible reason for a suicide.

AMERICAS FUTURE REFLECTED IN NEW YORK BOROUGH
The Last Crusade ^ | Sept. 19, 2009 | Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.
The enormity of the rise of Islam in America is crystallized by developments that have occurred within the New York borough of Brooklyn, once labelled the city of churches. Hundreds of churches have been closed in recent years, and dozens of synagogues have locked their doors. In their place, the following mosques that have cropped up within the past three decades.
A terrorist Associated Mosque Near Site of 2012 Olympics
Jen in the UK found an interesting article in yesterday’s print version of The Evening Standard. For some reason, she couldn’t find any reference to it online. But here’s what it said:
“An Islamic sect with links to the airline bomb plotters and 7/7 suicide bombers has been warned it faces legal action over its illegal mosque near London’s Olympic park.Newham council has given Tablighi Jamaat six months to submit plans for a “mega-mosque” or risk the removal of a temporary Portakabin-style structure it has used without planning permission for three years.”
Tablighi Jamaat was followed by the 7/7 bombers and one of the 21/7 plotters.
“Last week it was revealed that a mosque it controls in Queen’s Road, Walthamstow, had been frequented by airline gang ringleader Abdulla Ahmed Ali, who was jailed on Monday for a minimum of 40 years for plotting to bring down seven transatlantic planes.
Al-Qaeda-linked New York jihad plotters tried to rent a U-Haul truck
Jihad Watch ^ | September 19, 2009
Suggesting they wanted to pack it with explosives...Investigators probed a failed Queens truck rental for ties to a possible Al Qaeda bomb plot yesterday as a chief terror suspect tried making a deal to save his skin.
The New York end of the expanding federal probe centered on seven Afghan men who tried to rent the biggest truck at a Queens U-Haul on Sept. 9, sources told the Daily News. The size of the vehicle involved - a 26-foot-long truck - suggested the conspirators wanted to pack it with explosives, sources said.
Muslims in Colorado Uneasy Over Terror Inquiry
New York Times ^ | September 19, 2009 | DAN FROSCH
AURORA, Colo. Djilali Kacem tugged at his beard and surveyed the warehouse of Islamic books he helps oversee near Denver International Airport. The government should know better by now, said Mr. Kacem, an imam at a local mosque. It has been eight years since Sept. 11 and our government still overacts sometimes when it comes to Muslims.
Zazi breaks off talks with FBI, calls reports of terror ties ‘nonsense’
The Denver Post ^ | Posted: 09/19/2009 10:09:59 AM MDT
Updated: 09/19/2009 12:04:18 PM MDT | Kirk Mitchell, Bruce Finley and Felisa Cardona
The Aurora man targeted in an anti- terrorism investigation and his attorney abruptly broke off a planned meeting with FBI agents this morning.”Mr. (Najibullah) Zazi and (attorney) Mr. (Art) Folsom will not be meeting with the FBI today,”
Thanks, Ernest. Just pinged on the other thread.
September 19, 2009 (CHICAGO) (WLS) — There was word Saturday that the death of a University of Chicago scientist may be linked to a bacteria that causes the plague.
The researcher, who died Sunday, studied the genetics of harmful bacteria, including a weakened strain of yersinia pestis.
The University of Chicago says there doesn’t appear to be any threat to the public, and no other illness related to the case has been reported.
The weakened strain does not require the safety precautions associated with working on virulent strains. The modified strain of “y-pestis” has been approved by the Centers for Disease Control for routine laboratory studies, and it is not known to cause illness in healthy adults.
So why did he die if there’s no threat and it’s a weakened strain?
When will we ever get a clue and wise up about these jerks? People named Najibullah’s Zazi and his father, Muhommad should have bern deported and/or never allowed here to begin with. Their allegiance is not to the USA but to their allah guy and terror!
Will it take something worse than 9-11 to wake us up? Not us here on TM, but the government and their idiotic way of not protecting our borders. I bet they still let them in on various student visas etc.
FBI: Active terror cell aimed at real deal NYC attack ( ZAZI meant to do Damage )
Thanks to many of you for the pings to this among other things ;-):
Feds issue security bulletins telling stadiums, hotels to be vigilant against terror
Counterterrorism officials have issued security bulletins about terrorist interest in attacking sports stadiums, entertainment complexes and hotels.
The FBI and Homeland Security Department sent two bulletins Monday to police around the country, saying they know of no specific plots against such sites. The bulletins obtained by The Associated Press say those sites remain attractive targets to groups like al-Qaida.....
A computer belonging to Zazi showed he had researched baseball and football stadiums and sites used in the recent Fashion Week event in New York City, law enforcement officials tell ABCNews.com. While officials say they do not know the targets of the alleged plot, the contents of Zazi’s computer are considered a valuable insight into what he might have been planning.
Zazi also appeared to be communicating in code that suggested something big was imminent; ABC News reported that he sent a text message stating: The wedding cake is ready.
CNN reports that earlier this month, a group of Afghan men who have been connected to the alleged plot tried unsuccessfully to rent a U-Haul truck in Queens: A former counterterrorism official familiar with the investigation said that the group of Afghans tried to rent the truck September 9, but were unsuccessful after three different credit cards they attempted to use were declined. The men, who held driver’s licenses from Florida and Ohio, also were unable to use cash for the rental, the official said. Think Oklahoma City, or the 1993 World Trade Center attacks — both of which were much more ambitious than 7/7.
Last “wedding” reference not too long ago on this thread:
Wow, been so busy that I forgot that reference!!!!
The 911 attackers staged out of Florida.
Better translation of post 341 from a freepmailer:
Do you believe if I told you that there will be a big wedding and soon
A wedding that has no matrimony, no circumcision, no engagement, but it is a wedding. In this wedding we congratulate the sheikh of Jihad and Moujahdeen Osama Bin Laden saying to him: Happy New Year and a bad ruler would die.
A wedding that will have two tears. A happy tear from a wounded heart and a tear of hypocrisy from a known heart. The supporter of Jihad will be happy, they will have feasts, and they will raise the banners chanting and saying allah akbar.
And there behind the curtain there are some people crying, they have the right to cry because their bad ruler who elevated them and made them has left them.
He who understood what I wrote is invited to the big party and he who is confused will receive the invitation to the wedding and a rose attached to it. Just be patient and wait.
At that day the believers will celebrate the victory of allah
End of the translation.
Indeed, they did stage out of FL. The elusive Shukrijumah was also from Florida.
The islamic new year has passed already, and we are in Ramandan. Hard to associate Ramandan with the islamic new year - perhaps timing was disrupted.
