Arrested Americans SHOW NO REMORSE about their terror plans

“Arrested Americans show no remorse about their terror plans”

PTI Monday, December 21, 2009 14:44 IST

SNIPPET: “Lahore: Five American Muslim youth arrested by Pakistani authorities on suspicion of terror links have shown no remorse about their plans to commit terrorist acts and one has even said they should be hanged so that they could become martyrs, a senior police official said today.”

SNIPPET: “Zamzam, Waqar Hussain Khan, 22, Ahmed Abdullah Minni, 20, Iman Hasan Yemer, 17 and Omar Farooq, 24, were arrested in Sargodha, located 200km from Islamabad, on charges of planning terror attacks in Pakistan and abroad.”

SNIPPET: “On arriving in Pakistan, the youths contacted the militant groups Jamaat-ud-Dawah and Jaish-e-Mohammed but were turned away by both.

Anwar said they were so “desperate to wage holy war” that they decided to form their own group to “sacrifice their lives for Islam”.

“The boys told us that they came to Pakistan after an Al Qaida operative named Saifullah, which is probably a code name, assured them through emails that he would help them in achieving their plans. They got upset when they lost contact with Saifullah after reaching Pakistan and sought help from other militant groups,” he said.

Anwar said a FBI team had returned to the US after interrogating the youths and it was probably investigating “other students or their friends in their hometown of Alexandria in Virginia”.”

An excellent idea. If they need any volunteers to carry out sentence, let me know. Nothing should stand between them and martyrdom at a rope’s end.

Ulysse, people will come to thread that have no background whatsoever regarding jihad.

I like to make it as easy and clear as possible for them to understand.

I’m pro-life and value life.

Jihadis, on the other hand value death.

Here is a video of a different group of jihadis, but their pro-death ideology is typical, in my opinion.

“Hamas - “We desire death like you desire life””

This is one thing that makes them exceedingly dangerous as enemies. They have none of the normal inhibitions most folk have about dying for their cause. It’s unnatural.

Sounds good to me. Islam needs a few thousand new martyrs.

Why should they feel anything? Those who aspire to become martyrs already consider themselves dead.

Kill them....and kill any others who take their places.

Just kill them. Enough of trying to understand, of trying to argue that we are better than them and all that.

All that begets is more of these creeps.

Just kill them wherever they are found.

Within months, years, at best, you are rid of the problem.

Works well with street gangs too....

Yes and so did the Japanese back in the day. Kamikaze anyone. Divine Wind. That is one of the reasons that Truman was convinced to use the A-Bomb. It may come to that again I am afraid.
