Most Dangerous Terrorist Eludes Massive Manhunt (Could MH370 be in his control?)
counter jihad report ^ | 9/21//2012 | Paul L Williams

Posted on 03/19/2014 12:07:40 AM PDT by 1curiousmind

Despite the expenditure of nearly $50 million, the search for this elusive terrorist has produced no results. Elaborate plots were designed to snag him in Guyana; his photo has appeared on the front page of every leading American newspaper; and a special office, manned by a small army of FBI agents, was set up in Miami to uncover his whereabouts.

But Adnan el-Shukrijumah, the Brooklyn-bred jihadi, remains alive and well and more dangerous to America’s national security than ever before.

US officials first became aware of him in the wake of Operation Enduring Freedom (the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan), when the names of Jaffar al Tayyar (“Jafer the Pilot”) and Mohammed Sher Mohammed Khan were discovered among the “pocket litter” of al Qaeda soldiers. [i]

In May 2002, U.S. intelligence and military officials starting asking a pressing question to al Qaeda detainees who were being interrogated at foreign prisons and secret CIA and military facilities abroad. “Whom,” the officials asked, “would al Qaeda pick to lead the next big attack against U.S. targets?” Intelligence sources told U. S. News and World Reports that several of the detainees coughed up the same answer: “Jaffar al Tayyar.[ii]

So this man is a trained pilot, has been repeatedly named by captured terrorists as the one who will carry out a nuclear 9/11. He is most likely in Pakistan. And now we are hearing that there is a slight chance that flight 370 was hijacked (or diverted by the pilots) and landed in Pakistan. And the organizational meeting leading up to 9/11 happened where??? Kuala Lumpur.

Intersting theory..

But I can only assume that the US has obtained camera footage from the airport and ran facial recog programs on it.

If he was on it, they are not saying...

Please note -— this is admittedly a speculative question. But based on what we know...especially the latest information...this is a question worth asking, in my opinion.

I guess Obama was right.

When he said Al-Queda was on the run he was correct, running away so fast they had to steal a Boeing 777 to make a safe getaway.

If you keep posting stuff like this, how do you expect Hussein to supply that terrorist with a nuke and allow him to penetrate USA airspace as he detonates it?

the reason i posted this is because ive been hearing the idea about using this plane as a way to attack the US or Israel. but what interests me is that for over a decade the terrorists themselves have indicated this was their next big objective and a trained pilot is the one who is supposed to carry it out. and he is still on the loose. and likely in Pakistan.

OK...Now I will speculate. I don't think they could have got to Pakistan without being reported. If they did, they probably tried to land on dirt or sand and crash landed or they augured into the water out of fuel, leaving little debris.

I expect we will know at some point, with all the assets being used to locate it.

One thing I might add Kit, is that if they had the fuel to reach Pakistan, and I think they would have been id’d as a unidentified bogey and that would have made some noise if they did, so i don’t think pakistan would have been a destination.

But if they had that kind of fuel and I don’t know how much they had, Somalia would be where I would go.

Seeing as there were mostly Chinese citizens on that plane. The narrative that it was Muzzie terrorists is ok. The last thing the sand monkeys want is a country of 1.3 billion people who violate human rights in ways these simpletons could only dream of, as their enemy.

Well they attacked the us and now we have a _resident that bows to mecca 5 times a day so they figure the only real threat now is China.
They believe that their moon rock death god is on their side and anything they do will be victorious, so yeah they will go ahead and piss off China.

I’d love to see Beijing decide to put an end to it and turn Mecca and Medina into glass ashtrays and repossess Saudi Arabia.

That's a good thing. The ptb should be looking at future possibilities instead of stopping terrorist attacks that have already occurred. When they're not too busy reading my email and discovering what generals are having affairs, that is.

2:41 pm
A Malaysian news website has reported unnamed sources as saying that runways in the pilot’s simulator included Deigo Garcia, Male International in the Maldives, and several in India and Sri Lanka.

Diego Garcia is a U.S. military base, but sources have already said that it had not landed there.

The source is quoted as saying: “We are not discounting the possibility that the plane landed on a runway that might not be heavily monitored, in addition to the theories that the plane landed on sea, in the hills or in an open space.”

Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah’s simulator was removed from his home and it was revealed today that information had been deleted from the system.

1:03 pm
At this morning’s press conference acting transport minister Hishammuddin Hussein asked other countries to help by releasing their radar data.

He said: “I can confirm that we have received some radar data, but we are not at liberty to release information from other countries.

“I appeal to all our partners to continue volunteering any and all information that could help with the investigation and the search for MH370.”

“Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah’s simulator was removed from his home and it was revealed today that information had been deleted from the system.”

So perhaps the runways still on the simulator are the ones we can cross off first? He had to know that this would become known to investigators.

As awful as it is for the families of the passengers, the best scenario is that it crashed.

2010 article with more/different info.

Then there is Adnan's younger brother. This article is from 2007 and I could not find it on the website any longer in order to provide a valid link. Interesting info none the less.

Brother of Terror By Joe Kaufman | March 22, 2007

Nabil El-Shukrijumah lives with the dubious distinction of having a family associated with terrorism. His father was the spiritual leader of one of the most dangerous mosques in America and a character witness for an explosives expert convicted for his involvement in a plot to blow up New York’s Lincoln and Holland Tunnels. His brother, a jihad camp trainee, is said to be the fugitive leader of a terror cell charged with carrying out the next wave of 9/11-style attacks on U.S. soil. Is Nabil’s terrorist pedigree enough to push him towards the same? If his websites are any indication, then the answer is yes.

Gulshair El-Shukrijumah had been an imam at Masjid Nur Al-Islam, located in Brooklyn, New York. He was sent there as a missionary by the Saudi government, in 1986. One of his congregants, Clement Rodney Hampton-El, was a veteran of the Soviet-Afghan War, an explosives expert, and possibly the one that taught the cell how to build the bomb used in the ’93 World Trade Center attack. Gulshair, as well, was a translator for Omar Abdel-Rahman (a.k.a. The Blind Sheikh), who was the local spiritual leader of the group associated with the bombing conspiracy, Maktab Al-Khidmat.

Prior to Hampton-El’s and Abdel-Rahman’s convictions in 1996, Gulshair had taken his wife and kids out of Brooklyn and brought them to Miramar, Florida, where he was to become the imam of the Al-Hijrah Mosque. Nabil, his son, was 13, at the time. Aside from the father, the family had only been in Brooklyn for a short stay. The wife, Zuhra Abdu Ahmed, and children had previously been residing in Saudi Arabia.

Adnan El-Shukrijumah was the eldest of the children. When he was born, in 1975, his mother was just 16 years old, a child herself. His father was 47. Shortly after arriving in Florida, Adnan enrolled in classes at Broward Community College, studying engineering. According to school records, he was a student there till 1999. Adnan was widely known throughout the South Florida Muslim community, having spent time in numerous area mosques and Islamic centers. He was a devout Muslim and was well versed in Quranic teachings, often imparting that knowledge to those younger than himself.

In May of 2001, Adnan left Florida for Trinidad, where he had family – according to his father, to sell Islamic garments. Nabil, his brother, was 18, at the time. He would not return, as authorities gathered intelligence that Adnan was being groomed by Al-Qaeda to become the next Mohammed Atta, with whom it is believed he (Adnan) had dealings while in the States. That intelligence came, in part, from the operational commander of the September 11th attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.

Other terrorists Adnan has been associated with include: “Dirty Bomber” Jose Padilla, Hamas and Al-Qaeda fundraiser Adham Hassoun, and convicted terrorist Imran Mandhai. Padilla and Hassoun are currently awaiting trial in Miami. Today, Adnan is alleged to be part of an Al-Qaeda nuclear bomb plot. When word got out about his terror ties, his father was released from his duties as imam of Al-Hijrah, in March of 2003.

Gulshair didn’t have to wait long to find a new job, as he soon became a director at the Shamsuddin Islamic Center, located in North Miami Beach. The mosque had recently moved across the street from its original location, at the same address as the American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA). AMANA’s director, Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout, was previously the Vice President of the Health Resource Center for Palestine (HRCP), a “charity” that was shut down, after it had been exposed for having ties to Hamas.

Besides his profession as an imam, Gulshair was also an Arabic language teacher. He even tutored Mandhai, before he (Mandhai) went to prison. Prior to his disappearance, Adnan had set his father up with a website that would be used to sell Gulshair’s books and tapes on how to learn Arabic. The website was appropriately titled, “Master Arabic.” On it, Adnan stated, “My father is the narrator of a system designed to take you from as basic as the alphabet to constructing words to conversation to Arabic [sic] grammer… Go ahead and click your way to mastering Arabic.”

The site contained a guestbook within it. The very first signatory in it was AMANA’s Zakkout. Soon after him, an individual by the name of Bilal Philips signed. Years before, Philips had been placed on the U.S. Attorney’s list of potential co-conspirators of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. He wrote, “Salaam alaykum Ibn Shukri, Mabrook on the website and special salaams to your father and prayers for his good spiritual and physical health. He was one of my first teachers in Arabic and is a dear friend, though geography and world politics has separated us. Tell him that, as always, I love him for the sake of Allaah. Was salaam, Bilal.” Gulshair’s site also contained a picture of another “unindicted co-conspirator” of the ’93 bombing, Siraj Wahhaj.

Adnan’s tribute to his father would end in July of 2003, when the website would be taken down. [The internet address for the site is set to expire in June of 2008.] However, recently, Adnan’s brother, Nabil, would honor Gulshair with his own tribute site – of the same title.

Nabil, who runs a print company out of his parents’ home, like his brother before him, has proficient web design skills. Within My Space, an online community that allows you to keep in contact with friends and family, Nabil created a new “Master Arabic” page for his father. On the page, he placed numerous pictures of Gulshair. One is of Gulshair teaching two young boys at his Brooklyn mosque. One of the lines on the blackboard reads, “The human being is under the oppression of the kuffar (unbelievers).”

Gulshair’s words were not the only disturbing message on this web page. In December of 2006, Nabil posted the following, with severe implications: “As Salaam Alaikum Dad, you're still living among all of us, will see you later but not that much later.”

In addition to his father’s page, Nabil created his own personal My Space page. He uses the name “El-Shukri.” [Shukrijumah is the combination of Shukri and the last name of the family, Jumah or Juman.] On the site, one finds many examples of how he has sought to follow in his father’s and brother’s extremist footsteps.

Numerous pictures that Nabil put on his page are of a jihadist nature. One of them can easily be construed as a threat to Israel’s existence. It states, “Oh Jerusalem, we are coming” and shows a terrorist with rifle on horseback watching as the city burns in flames. Another picture depicts scenes of dead American soldiers. Under one of the scenes, it says, “These are the armaments of the enemy, who are disgraced.” The picture, which contains a militant holding a rocket launcher, is from an Iraqi “resistance” group. Above the picture are large images of Saddam Hussein.

Two pictures on the page are from a Muslim rap group called Soldiers of Allah. They both include the black Islamic flag of war, which has been made popular by the banned British Islamist organizations, Al-Muhajiroun and Hizb-ut-Tahrir. As well, when one opens Nabil’s page, he/she is treated to Soldiers of Allah’s song, ‘1924.’ It contains the following quotes: “I am not going to give one inch of Palestine to the Jews… I would rather have my flesh be cut up than cut out Palestine from the Muslim land…” and “When the west was training Muslim scholars for hire, Jews were setting Al-Aqsa mosque on fire!”

One other picture on Nabil’s page is not worrisome for what it has on it, but for where it came from, The site is registered to Yousif Al-Olayyan, a former student at the University of Florida. Al-Olayyan is also the registered agent and the editor-in-chief for, a site that features in-depth discussions about Al-Qaeda, including from those that claim to be affiliated with the organization’s leaders. One individual, who goes by the title ‘Al-Am’ or ‘The Pains,’ stated, “I was with Sheikh Dr. Ayman Al-Zawahiri to launch attacks in the Arab country…”

What’s even more troubling is the fact that, in October of 2002, Al-Olayyan was an invitee to a Homeland Security program dealing with “corrosion in reactors and nuclear power systems.” The event was co-organized by the Los Alamos National Laboratory, which, according to its website, “helps to ensure the safety of the nuclear weapons stockpile and reduce the threat of terrorist attacks on our homeland.” [PDF]

Along with the many pictures, Nabil placed a video on his My Space about how America attacked itself on 9/11. This is outrageous, given the fact that his brother Adnan, who is nicknamed Jafar the Pilot, is suspected of flight training with the perpetrators of 9/11.

My Space allows people to join others’ My Space pages as “friends.” Every “friend” needs to be approved by the owner of the site. As well, My Space allows you to place your favorite set of “friends” on your homepage, along with their pictures or logos. On Nabil’s site, there are numerous suspect individuals. His favorites include: a 23-year-old resident of Hollywood, Florida named Yusuf Abdullah, who calls the El-Shukrijumah family “a blessing in my life.”

Abdullah’s page sports a background picture of a Quran and a Kalashnikov rifle alongside one another. Additionally, on his site, one finds audio and video of the song ‘Ghurabaa’ by Saad al-Ghamdi. In the piece, it is repeated, “So let us make jihad, and battle, and fight from the start.”

Also featured in Nabil’s favorites is a My Space page dedicated to the deceased Chechen terror warlord, Omar Ibn al Khattab. Khattab, who was closely aligned with Osama bin Laden and the Al-Qaeda network, was responsible for the murders of scores of Russian soldiers. The page is called “Hattab – The Lion of Islam,” and it contains an abundance of footage from Chechen terror operations, as well as the Hamas logo and a poem stating, “It is Islam, [it has] returned. In the path of Allah, we have walked and announced Jihad. We have returned with a machine gun.”

Another “friend” of Nabil is Vegeta (a.k.a. Saiyan). On Vegeta’s site, visitors can see photographs of Hamas and Hezbollah terror fighters, including children dressed in terrorist garb. Nabil posted a comment on the site, calling Vegeta “my Muslim Brother” and approvingly stated, concerning an anti-Israel video Vegeta had posted, “Very good, Masha’ Allah.”

Nabil enjoys posting comments on other people’s sites, including numerous statements containing the highly offensive term “nigga.” He has also posted religious material, such as a flyer for the Nur-Ul-Islam children’s Academy. Nur-Ul-Islam was co-founded by Raed Awad, a former agent for the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), a “charity” that raised millions of dollars for Hamas. In addition, it was Awad that is believed to be responsible for the conversion to Islam by Jose Padilla.

Web design skills within the El-Shukrijumah family are not just limited to Adnan and Nabil. Aidah, their 22-year-old sister, has her own My Space page, as well. On it, she pays tribute to her lost brother with photographs. On one, she refers to him as “Big bro.” In another, she and her siblings are sitting outdoors next to their father, holding a sketch of Adnan. The photo was taken outside the CBC Building in Toronto, one of Adnan’s known stomping grounds. The picture is labeled “Memories.” Long forgotten, it seems, was the time, in 1997, when “Big bro” was arrested for biting Aidah. That was then.

Today, Aidah has a new life with her husband, who from the looks of one of his shirts, hails from the windy city of Chicago. Relocated, she is, awaiting her soon-to-be born baby, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, thousands of miles from the family’s Miramar home.

Does she know where her brother, Adnan, is? Who can say? Does any of the family know? If they do, they’ve been careful not to slip up. The mother has admitted to telling him not to return, for fear of him being brought to justice.

One thing is for certain, though. Whether Adnan comes back or not, the family has a new adult jihadi to keep the legacy alive – Nabil El-Shukrijumah. Given the trouble the United States has had in locating his brother, one would think that he would be watched with at least the same interest and intensity.
