BOSTON -- People who know the friendly Muslim family that has lived in Sudbury for the past six or seven years, where the mother even provides day care out of the home, simply cannot believe it.

Tarek Mehanna, 27, the son of a well-liked Boston pharmacology professor, was arrested by federal officials at his parents' sumptuous suburban home Wednesday, accused of lying about trips to the Middle East to seek terrorist training and plotting to attack Americans in a U.S. shopping mall.

At his federal court appearance on the charges, Mehanna briefly refused to stand for the judge and tossed a chair to the floor. His father said his son is upset by the accusations.

"My son is very nervous, because that is all fabrication in his eyes," his father Ahmed Mehanna said.

"He is a very good guy. He's very innocent," Mehanna's mother Saoud said.

“He is a very good guy. He’s very innocent,” Mehanna’s mother Saoud said.

Yeah right! How long do these barbarian think we are going to keep buying the lies? According to her warped “religion” killing infidels is good. It just depends on what the meaning of “is” is.

OK, the news reports have gone from a home in “an upscale suburb” to “a home in a wealthy suburb” to a “sumptuous home”.

Please.

See Sudden Jihad Syndrome. Person acting more or less normal for years, then it blows itself up while yelling the jihadi slogan.

You must understand their culture. Lying to the Nazranis is a virtue. They’ll demonstrate before the Grand Jury.

What is most troubling about this article is that assuming the elders of the family are what they appear to be; stable, conservative, upper middle class. Very similar, in fact, to those British families that raised the train bombers. Like them, now after several generations of being good citizens of the US, out pops a terrorist. I don't believe we can never ever trust an islamist, no matter what they say they believe.

The disturbing part is that they are here and we let them in. Our entire middle east policy under George Bush was that if we showed them Democracy and Capitalism, they would embrace our ideology, join the family of nations, quit being terrorists.

I’m in favor of banning all Muslim immigrants to the USA, and removing all Muslim-Americans from this country on the basis of being national security risks due to membership in the Ancient Arabian Death Cult.

What to do about all the empty Mosques?

Maybe the YMCA would be interested...

I’m sure the Secular attorneys at the ACLU would fight to the death for their rights.

ACLU? The other partner in the “Red-Green” Alliance of Evil.
