Suspicious Activity amongst the Islamic Community in Chicago (Since OBL Dead)
Free Republic ^ | 5/3/11 | Dengar01

Posted on 05/03/2011 5:49:02 PM PDT by Dengar01

I am sending out a question to those living in Chicago or Suburban Chicago. My dad has Arab neighbors next door who has their address posted in Arabic (not numbers). Their son was kicked out of school for making a bomb threat.

Yesterday, I picked up my father at 2:00 PM and there were 10 cars in their driveway and along the street which was insanely bizarre. My family has lived there since 1990 far earlier than when they moved in and we never seen anything like that.

So I was suspicious and took a bunch of photos.

Tonight, there are 13 cars in the driveway, we took more pictures and I contacted the FBI after hearing this.

My father's plant manager said he has Arab neighbors who had a dozen cars parked last night which he had never seen before.

So I am trying to get the word out to Chicagoland FReepers to keep your eyes peeled. The media tells us to be on high alert since OBL has been dead. Well if this doesn't qualify as suspicious, nothing does.

I am not posting this to be racist, I am posting this because I fear there is a potential for terrorism in the Chicago area. If anyone else has noticed strange activity since the death of OBL please post here so I can pass word onto the FBI.

Could be a plan asking for plenty of grief and trouble you likely don’t need.

I’d not overtly trigger their notice, curiosity or animosity.

Best move you can make is get out of that rathole!

When they cut loose they are going to hit the large urban areas with everything they've got.

I just checked the Homeland Security site, and they say report it to the FBI.

I don’t think they will report it. I had an employee in 2002 that was claiming they had very suspicious neighbors and had alleged enough very specific actions to make us concerned.

We couldn’t get her to report it, so I did. And it wasn’t but a couple of days, until FBI officers just happened to engage her in a conversation. They apparently handled it pretty discreetly. I don’t know if the employee ever even knew I had tipped off the FBI based on her comments.

Maybe local police, too. Whoever is going to be least corrupt. Or maybe multiple sources. Or maybe the local TV channel. I’d just make sure it was known and known again.

You might write down tag numbers and descriptions of autos, or photos if that can be done inconspicuously. That info would be invaluable if this should prove to be something illicit.

Back on May 1 (before the bin Laden raid), I thought it odd that, in PAKISTAN's May Day events, they would be talking about the Chicago martyrs:
ISLAMABAD: Hundreds of people on Sunday took part in a rally led by Pakistan Workers Associations (PWF), Islamabad to mark International Labour Day and to pay homage to the Chicago martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the cause of the labourers.
Officially, they are commemorating the Haymarket riot in Chicago, May 4, 1886. Tomorrow would mark the 125th anniversary.

In Google news Pakistan martyrs chicago gets 56 hits. My paranoia is twitching a little now.

I lived in suburban Chicago all of my life. The Muslim population has grown tremendously and many mosques have been built in the surrounding suburbs. We had a business for many years and had ALOT of Muslim customers, as our business was near a suburban mosque. After 9/11, we had a MARKED decline in Muslim customers and when I asked about some of them to other Muslims, they would tell me “he went back to his country”.........the FBI will laugh at you if you call just because Muslims are congregating. I know because I called with some information I had after 9/11, thinking anything I could do would be helpful. Not so...they acted like they would be filing mine under “another hysterical Islamophobic caller”........but I’ve never stopped watching.......and I don’t live in IL anymore, either.

Thanks for posting this, I will be more observant. We have a mosque in our area too. The morning of 9/11, there was a quickie mart store nearby with a full parking lot. The place had Arabic writing in the windows, there were seldom any cars in the parking lot—yet that morning the lot was full. I called the FBI about it. Never heard anything back from them. But they did round up some people nearby associated with the mosque after 9/11. They were alleged charitable organizations who were funneling money to terrorist groups back home in the Middle East.

One little outbreak will paralyze the large urban areas, unless you’re prepared to huddle in a closet hoping you don’t smell smoke the best thing to do is get out.

UPDATE:

Talked to local police who are concerned and said that I needed to contact the FBI ASAP (which I already have). They said I did the right thing by taking pictures, noticing there was a dramatic change in behavior after the death of OBL. They were going to send squad cars by to identify the house SINCE THE HOUSE NUMBER IS IN ARABIC so you can't identify the house number.

Even on the mailbox there is no number. Doesn't that strike you guys as odd? I have known many Arab people as Chicagoland is like mini Deerborn, Michigan and all of them had their house number in numbers!!!

It’s very odd and I believe most towns in the metro area have ordinances that your house # must be visible from the street.

I haven’t noticed anything really odd, but I haven’t been out much in the last two days. I know there has been a huge uptick in the number of Muslims in the south suburbs in the last 7-10 years.

For those who don’t know the area, they built a huge mosque in Orland Park a few years ago. That location was chosen because another nearby town, Palos Heights, would not allow a mosque to be built in their town. It was national news and Rush talked about it for a while. Also, Berwyn isn’t that far away and there was a mosque there that was funneling money to terrorist orgs, too.

Me, especially about the cops having to drive by since no one knows the number. I can tell you the number of the house the street, both houses next door, the houses next door to the house across the street, etc. All based on my address which I do know. Something ain’t right here.

The best advice is to “be a good witness.” Don’t confront.

Ok, someone has to say it. You're either having us on, which I suspect, or you are a complete idiot which I suspect you are not.

However, if I'm wrong, and you are a complete idiot heed this advice: Skulking around the neighborhood in all black with black face paint AFTER you've called the cops to watch the house is effing stupid and is likely to get you killed.

Maybe they misunderstood the county ordinance.

Please note that County Ordinance "requires that each primary structure shall display a house number. A house number shall not be displayed containing numbers less than 3 inches (7.62 centimeters) in height. It shall be visible from the roadway named in the address, and all house numbers shall be in Arabic numerals."

Since the police are taking down the license plate numbers, apparently they are taking you serious. Not sure it's a wise thing to go sneaking around.

Don’t break any laws, or put yourself in danger.

Tell the police you’re volunteering to allow them to set up a video camera on your property to record them 24/7.

I think there will be a terrorist attack. I believe that there were likely contingency plans laid upon his death by other than natural causes, especially his death by US forces.

His death likely put some mechanism in motion.

I would be very careful and suspicious these days about anything. Sadly, the real threats are ignored while the government is going after people for file or link sharing on the internet.

For his sake, I really hope he is being an ass and putting us on. If he really is out there in black face paint with a video camera, and one of these police patrols he mentioned passes, it could get real ugly real quick.
