Feds probe alleged terrorists who tried to rent giant truck in suspected Al Qaeda bomb plot
NY Daily News.com ^ | September 19th 2009 | DAILY NEWS WRITERS

Posted on 09/19/2009 10:28:54 AM PDT by pitinkie

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 truck rental bid failed when none of the men could produce a valid credit card. All refused to surrender the identification needed to pay cash, the manager of the Flushing U-Haul said.

A team of FBI agents spent 10 hours Thursday combing through the Queens truck rental business.

At least three Afghan men - including Ahmad Afzali, a Queens imam identified by a U-Haul employee as one of the would-be renters - were questioned in New York by FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, sources said.

Trying to get U-Haul to deliver the right truck at the right place and time is worse torture than waterboarding.

It would seem that the "clerics" of the Religion of Violins are the inciters. Send most of them to Gitmo for a while.

Especially considering that our borders. 8 years after 9-11 are sieves, our country is infested with illegals, and immigration law enforcement is a joke.

folks who’ll fall for the nonsense that they are going to

blow themselves to smithereens and land in the laps of 76 virgins in paradise???

I mean . . . Maybe they think each piece will be a heavenly IUD? [slapping fingers]

I mean . . . Maybe they think the camel/little boy . . . -ers with the wild eyes, unkempt hair and demonized persona are paragons of erudite wisdom and brilliance as they advise the hapless “volunteers” on the finer points of graduating from this life in a million pieces.

I mean . . . how do they go from a life time of construing God to be extremely ‘Puritanical,’ harsh, brutal, mean-spirited, punative . . . etc. etc. etc. who will somehow suddenly transform into a God of dispensing heavenly orgies???? Why doesn’t some sort of COGNITIVE DISSONANCE HUGE RED flag pop up in their pointed noggins???

I mean . . . it boggles the mind.

They're building compounds, going to Somalia to fight jihad, and multiplying among us.....

Islamberg not the only radical Muslim compound flourishing in North America

Islamberg is just one of what is thought to be a half dozen radical Muslim paramilitary compounds flourishing across the United States, this one nestled in dense forest at the foothills of the Catskill Mountains on the outskirts of Hancock, New York.

Zazi stopped cooperating and now denies everything?

He must’ve gotten a reassuring phone call from Omoslem.

Our traitor moslem communist usurper president will protect his fellow terrorists.

By next week, Ohole will have Zazi swimming in Bermuda.

Well, seems like Allah is quit consistent. He promises horny young men to do his bidding: decapitate, murder, mow down infidels in exchange of what they dream of: at taste of eternal “wedding cake.”

Really? I was sleeping with the TV on the other day. I had a dream I was watching breaking news, and something had just exploded, and they were reporting it as an attack. I don’t remember where. I woke up, thinking I’d heard it on TV for real, and incorporated it into my dream. I watched the TV, checked all the news sites when I got home, and I finally concluded that it was just a dream.

I’ll tell you what though, arresting these guys, raiding these places, finding out they tried to rent a truck, a new Al Qaeda video, you’d have to be an idiot to allow that Islam gathering on Capitol Hill on the 25th. Any radical is going to see that as a gift from Allah. 50,000 muslims on the hill, to pray for America. Tell me that isn’t the perfect opportunity. I’d like to meet the moron that approved that permit.

It was just a short dream, but I felt it significant at the time and I had never had nor have I had a dream since that I thought might be prophetic. In my dream, I was walking along a street of what appeared to be an Amusement park. The dream was in full color and beyond this dream I don't ever recall having noticed dreaming in color or black and white. But, I felt like it was an amusement park but also knew it was at or near a ball park. Anyway, I was walking and saw some people carrying away old-fashioned colorful signs with carved figures on them. The only one I remembered by name was one that was "The Avenue of the Americas". And then, in my dream I remember being sad because "The Avenue of the Americas was no more." Then I woke up. After the dream, I got online to see if there were any ball parks on the Avenue of the Americas in New York City and didn't see anything that looked even close. So, I decided to see where the ball parks were located in NY. I looked up where the Yankees play nothing even close. Then I looked up the Mets. To my shock I found that Shea Stadium and their new stadium are located right outside of Flushing Meadows Corona Park. That park was the site of the 1939 and 1964 world's fairs. It was also where the United Nations was located in 1948 when they were voting on Israel becoming a nation again. And - in the middle of a park there is a globe with several streets leading directly up to it kinda in a fan shape. One of those streets is called "Avenue of the Americas." I was never able to shake this dream and I know it doesn't say a whole lot - but I instinctively felt it was like God was communicating something of great consequence concerning our country.

Here is a picture from online of the park. The streets you see have the same feel the ones I saw in my dream.

You’re welcome. Incidentally, I didn’t get the feel that it was no more because of some sort of Terrorist incident; rather, because the Oligarchy decided it was no more. Felt like a merger of sorts had occurred.

Zazi spent the day meeting with his lawyer, and probably observing the end of Ramadan.

a group of Afghani men attempted to rent the largest truck available back on September 9.

Naiz Khan housed Zazi while he was in Queens, they also attended the same mosque in New York. Ahmad Afzali owns a funeral home in Queens. Afzali was coincidentally quoted by the New York Times back in 2003 in an article that gives some insights into the Afghan community — many arriving since the Afghanistan war began — in and near the area.

''It's been a great opportunity for us financially,'' said Ahmad W. Afzali, who runs a Muslim funeral parlor in Flushing.

Press Here

the New York Post reported today that seven accomplices were detained in New York on Friday

unfolding terrorism plot centered on Najibullah Zazi

5-month period last year he opened 15 credit cards and spent nearly $40,000 on them. In court papers at the time he listed himself as single, contrary to recent statements that he has visited Pakistan several times to visit a wife near the Afghanistan border.

Surely.

My impression was that “Avenue of the Americas” was not representative of the street; but, rather, of the Continents. I felt as if our national sovereignty had been given away in a global sense, that we had been merged with at least Mexico and Canada but possibly South America as well, and that “the Americas” were no more. The fact that the dream was set in Flushing Meadows park, a place I was completely unaware of before researching the dream, may indicate that the U.N. is somehow involved.

One final note. I did not feel afraid at all. Just sad. I felt as if I was in a place of safety. Not touchable by the oligarchy. Yet, I was observing the end of our nation as we know it.

Yup!

What’s really galling is that it’s the fault of both parties, the globalist, Rhinos who run the Repub party are as complicate as the Rats.

Bush had a Republican majority for 5+ years after 9-11. Bush and the Rhinos who run the Repub party are globalists for whom free movement of goods and natural persons is more important than national security. Before those who want immigration law enforced and borders secured were called ‘domestic terrorists’ by Zero’s administration they were labeled ‘vigilantes’ by Bush.
