Posted on 09/17/2012 3:17:07 PM PDT by PBRCat
During a brief appearance Monday, a boyish-faced Daoud wore leg shackles, an orange jumpsuit and a scruffy, unkempt beard and Afro-style hair.
Hes accused of trying to blow up a bar and liquor store using a car bomb placed in the back of a Jeep Grand Cherokee Friday night.
Though federal authorities havent identified the bar, the co-owner of Cals at 400 S. Wells, Mike Feirstein said Sunday that he believes his familys bar was the target.
A federal complaint alleges (Abel)Daoud pressed a detonator that he believed would explode the car bomb, killing dozens. Daoud who worshipped at the Islamic Foundation in Villa Park had become radicalized online and wanted to join Al-Qaida, authorities allege. He allegedly picked the bar as a target because it was busy and served alcohol, which is against Muslim beliefs.
During the court hearing on Monday, Daouds attorney, Thomas Durkin, alleged that Daoud was being held in solitary confinement at the Metropolitan Correctional Center simply because he allegedly holds radical Islamic views, a move he complained was unconstitutional.

Over four hundred persons would have been targeted for death had the car bomb detonated.
The detonator should have been an explosive device itself. We wouldn’t have to waste money on this piece of debris any longer.
He would be a good candidate for Obama’s son.
Can’t they just shoot the guy under NDAA?
Maybe the MSM can find a picture of him when he was ten years old and use that for their pity parties...
How is that a defense?
NO.... it was because he tried to blow up a JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE. (/s)
The photo that you posted is of a different terrorist suspect who tried to set off a car bomb near Wrigley Field.
This case occurred some months ago.
The new terror suspect targeted a crowded bar where hundreds of people were gathered after work on a Friday night in the West Loop.
Hey, hussein has to get enought brothers of the muzziehood placed in key positions just in case the Spanish voting company doesn't fudge the count.
That was the photo qith the articlw founf here,
I’d bet dollars to doughnut holes that this is an FBI-manufactured “crime.”
OMG!!! Cal’s on the corner of Wells and Van Buren. I’ve had lunch there many times, as well as after-work beers.
Adel Daoud graduated from the Islamic Foundation high school in Villa Park and still attended prayers there.
Every moderate Muslim is a potential terrorist. The belief in Islam is like a tank of gasoline. It looks innocuous, until it meets the fire. For a moderate Muslim to become a murderous jihadist, all it takes is a spark of faith.
It is time to put an end to the charade of moderate Islam. There is no such thing as moderate Muslim. Muslims are either jihadists or dormant jihadists moderate, they are not.
Ali Sini is head of Faith Freedom International. FFI is a grassroots worldwide movement of ex-Muslims and all those who are concerned about the rise of the Islamic threat.
“An attorney representing a suburban teen accused of a jihadi terror plot to blow up a downtown bar described him as an immature 18-year-old
Well, in that case, I guess it’s OK for him to try to blow up a bar full of people.
He’s an adult. He’s mature enough. He made his own choices.
Immature is a description, not a legal defense when you’re a legal adult.
Barack Obama has nominated the defense attorney (Thomas Durkin) for a Federal judgeship. “””
Obama prpbably also needs a new Ambossador to Libya. Maybe he will nominate the bomber for that.
Hey- put him out into the general population of the jail.
Let the other prisoners end this farce right now.
I bet the attorney would have changed his tune if Duuh-ood had targeted his firm instead...
A moderate Muslim is only a Muslim that hasn’t yet learned how to build a bomb.
