Behind the pictures of Pervez and Jamal shown in this post there's a piece of some sort of a yellow symbol. Does anybody know what it is?

I'd like to propose a theory that the men came in from Canada into Maine. It is extremely easy to cross the border undetected here. The FBI themselves say that Maine is an area to watch as far as terrorist traffic is concerned. Maine is just a hop and a skip from Boston and New York, and is just a few days drive to Florida or New Jersey.

This was just my thoughts, how in the hell did they get in here? If they now know they came across, why did they not stop them then? What did they do, say to them, OK GUYS, you now have a 10 min. headstart. This is just weird.

I mean they know who they are they have their pictures so quickly, how in the world did this happen? Did they see them cross over, what? Answers please someone. How many more will they let cross, then put out a bulletin.

This demands explanation from the gov.

Yes, how come we never hear of a story such as: The INS has detained 3 men who were caught trying to enter the United States last evening, suspected of illegal activites. How come we never hear anything like this? You would think we could come up with some kind of system that would flag certain visitors and have them held until there intentions are verified. How come it is always: "3 men have entered the country and we have no *&^#$^$ clue where they are." The INS is a total disgrace to our great Country.

On the local Seattle news they interviewed someone that said that he rode on a bus out of Canada with one of the 5 and that the bus was stopped at the border and the person was pulled off.
Didn't hear that mentioned on FOX news this morning. Perhaps it wasn't the same guy?

Miss Marple, thought you might be interested in this (MUSLIM) Man arrested at Paris airport I posted the following in reply to post 45 from the above thread, where the poster did a Who is search on the ALMUHAJIROUN.COM domain. I post it here to this thread because of the Iftikhar Ali name connection.

Regarding #54 and the name Choudary, Anjem:

I thought the name Choudary sounded familiar as one of the names of the 3 student/doctors from the Florida 'hoax', so I went looking. Here are the results:

The three student/doctors were: # 122

Ayman A. Gheith, 27
Mohammed Kambiz Butt
Omer Chaudry

Choudary = Chaudry ???? While spelled differently, they 'could' be pronounced the same.

Also of interest is that one of the three student/doctors had a last name of Butt. In this article, about Iftikhar Ali (whose name is among the 5 the FBI are now looking for,Muslim guilty of inciting racial hatred, second paragraph from the end:

Irfan Butt, defending, said his client never intended to stir up racial hatred, stressing that the Islamic religion was "fundamentally a tolerant one and does not support violent action against any individuals".

From the article, Muslim cleric defies speech ban

Mr Chowdury told BBC Wales: "At the moment, we don't know where they (Al Muhajiroun) got the permission from.

And, from the article Bin Laden supporter banned from mosque

Mr Chowdhury told BBC Wales: "At the moment, we don't know where they (Al Muhajiroun ) got the permission from.

Same paragraph, but this article has a pic of Bakir.

Choudary
Chaudry
Chowdhury

All three names COULD be pronounced the same only spelled differently. Could they be the same, only slight changes to throw investigators off? Or related to one another. Just thought it was a 'coincidence' that Chaudry and Butt, to names from the Florida three, and Chowdhury and Butt wind up in the BBC articles. And then Choudary shows up on the 'Who is' for ALMUHAJIROUN.COM

There is a trial going on in Buffalo for six men who attended one of bin Laden's training camps.

They were arrested when one of them turned them in.

"Alwan admitted attending the camp and has implicated his co-defendants. He has said he left the Al Farooq camp, near Kandahar, because he did not share its organizers' extremist views and missed his family. Alwan is married with two sons and a daughter."---Source.

The media is not giving coverage to the many Muslims who are doing the right thing here.

In my next Banana Republican Radio Hour on Radio FreeRepublic, I have an interview scheduled with the Executive Director of The Islamic Supreme Council of America, where we will clear up the air on some issues.

Wasn't it the Canadian government that a few weeks ago warned its Islamic citizens about possible "discrimination" when entering America, and urged them not to visit the U.S. because the U.S. - not terrorism - was "dangerous"?

It could be as simple as that, that it's easy pickings in Maine. And wasn't M. Atta caught on video at a Maine airport on 911? I'm probably remembering incorrectly, but it was in New England, I'm sure of that much.

Wow! Sorry I have been gone, my husband had to use the computer, so I was relegated to (shudder) housework! Ha!

All Arabic names are phonetically spelled in the language of the tranlating country. What we would need to know is if the names Chowdry, Chowdary, etc. are all transcriptions of the SAME name in Arabic. I don't know anyone who speaks Arabic on this site, or I would flag them.

It seems likely to me that this is more than coincidence. Especially since the name "Butt" also appears. I wonder what happened to those 3 medical students?

Thank you for taking the time to post this!

INFO BUMP TO POST NO. 247 and the subject is IFTIKHAR ALI.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/1966839.stm

ARTICLE SNIPPET from the BBC NEWS:

"Muslim guilty of inciting racial hatred

Iftikhar Ali was fined £3,000

A Muslim who distributed leaflets in London calling for a holy war against Jews has narrowly escaped jail.

Iftikhar Ali stood in Whitechapel High Street in the East End handing out adverts for a talk by the Muslim political organisation Al Mahajiroun.

When arrested still holding the leaflets, Ali said: "What is written on the paper is true.

"The Jewish people must die."

The London Underground worker is the first person to be prosecuted for inciting racial hatred with an Islamic religious text.

Guilty verdict

The leaflets read: "The Holy Land, Palestine crying for Jihad."

It quoted a "Hadith" - or spoken word when Mohammed said "the hour will not come until Muslims fight the Jews and kill them".

Included was an invitation to a talk by Sheik Omar Bakri Mohammed, the leader of the Muslim political group Al Mahajiroun.

The 33-year-old was convicted of distributing "threatening, abusive or insulting" material in October, 2000, with the intention of stirring up racial hatred.

Father of two, Ali, of East Ham, London was also found guilty of possessing the material." -end of article snippet

Dear FBI Office,

Many Americans are curious about those 5 wanted men as listed under the FBI.gov -"War on Terror: Seeking Information." A good search engine to see what is floating around on the 'net is GOOGLE.com. Anyway, here is an article that may be about one of those men.

Because it is not PC. that's why. Nothing will ever be done, EVER. The gubs are too afraid of making some group mad, or afraid they will not get their vote. TO HELL WITH THAT, this is a matter of life or death and it is getting very serious.

With the attitude the INS has, America is doomed. We will PC'd to death.

Glad to post it Miss Marple. I would have posted it late last night/early this morning, but we had just returned from being at relatives for several days and I was really tired. And after seeing the name Butt in the one article, and knowing that one of the Florida three had that name, I knew it was going to take a few minutes to pull it all together.

I am inclined to think though that it is an odd coincidence, to have the two names resurfacing.

No, you're absolutely right about that. Atta came through Portland, Maine. Some of us speculate that he might have holed up with someone there before taking his flight. Portland, like Lewiston now, has a growing third world Muslim population. Perfect place for him to hide out for a couple of days, you know?

Maine is such easy pickings, it is scary. If you ask me, borders with Canada should have as much scrutiny as the Mexican borders (which don't have much anyway). With all the attention focused on the Mexican border right now, it is so much easier for these people to slip through the Canadian border.

..from Canada. Think about it! (with all the uproar over the Southern borders)...Where would terrorists enjoy comfort over the duration spend outside the borders with easy access in and out... what better "pad" then Canada!..they mix in well,free medical,housing..but you know all that.

Then this week the announcement came the open doorways to Canada in Maine should be closed. These are entrances used by logging trucks and neighboring Canadians that do not have any patrol at all or left unmanned after hours. Republican Susan Collins from Maine has asked for a 6 month extension to remain open as it will cause a hardship on Mainers in that logging industry.

My reply was if anyone slips in thru those "open"doors without surveillance or thru those only guarded during certain hours..I would blame the good Republican Liberal Senator from Maine after her plea for "the 6 month extension" should anything happen and it is proven these terrorists enjoyed easy access back and forth.

People hate change but one should be looking at the common good of all mankind and not a chosen few Mainers that might be inconvenienced.I don't like being convenienced at the airport in Maine and elsewhere but you conform to deal with the situation.

Am thumbing my nose saying I knew this would happen!! after the recent announcement that the Northern access into Maine from Canada would be closed ..the date not given. I wrote to the powers that govern even though I knew I would just be lost in the shuffle. I should not just blame Collins but also all the Democrats who are now in control of the State of Maine ..right down to Gov. King himself.

Atta flew in the night before from Boston..stayed overnight in Portand and left at that early hour of 9/11.However, it was surmised he had been in Maine before and thru the Canadian/Maine perhaps Vermont! access..don't forget many going to Montreal go up thru NH the Notch briefly into Vermont and into Canada.

We never did hear why they chose to come to Portland,Maine overnight..they did withdraw cash at an ATM and I always wondered why one needs to withdraw cash if planning a suicide mission.Parts of that reported itinerary always seemed rather strange to me.

He was later found to be a member of a Montreal cell of the Algerian Armed Islamic Group, which has strong ties to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network, and was convicted of conspiring to blow up Los Angeles International Airport. There have also been calls to tighten immigration procedures after it was recently revealed that growing numbers of criminal and suspected terrorists were allowed into Canada last year on special permits issued by the federal government. At least 11 people who authorities believe have engaged in "terrorism, espionage or subversion by force" were granted permits that let them enter Canada despite having backgrounds that would normally keep them out -- a number that increased from two in 2000. Another 600 people convicted of a serious crime here or abroad were also among those admitted in 2001, up from 377 in 1999.") (123002)

With these leads and further analysis of evidence recovered from the rubble of Muhammad Atef's house in Afghanistan, we have gained additional information about the fifth suspected terrorist. The name of the fifth terrorist is Al Rauf bin al Habib bin Yousef al-Jiddi. Al-Jiddi, who is a Canadian citizen, was born in Tunisia and is 36 years of age. He has black hair; is approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall and may weigh approximately 220 pounds. We identified al-Jiddi through discovery of a suicide letter found in the ruins of the Atef residence by the U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan. The letter, which is still being fully analyzed, was recently translated. In addition, the Canadian government assisted us by identifying Al-Jiddi. We have also identified an associate who may be traveling with Al-Jiddi. His name is Faker Boussora. He is 37 years of age, is approximately five feet, eight inches and weighs approximately 160 to 170 pounds, has a round face and prominent ears. We believe Boussora may also be involved in a martyrdom mission. Boussora is also a Canadian citizen, born in Tunisia. The FBI has alerted law enforcement authorities across the United States and is also working closely with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Both individuals should be considered extremely dangerous.) (NOTE: See photos in the FBI.gov - Seeking Information: "Martyrdom Messages.") (January 25, 2002)

I am in the middle of two Christmas present books. First is: "The Last Jihad" by Joel C. Rosenberg the other is "Let Freedom Ring" by Sean Hannity. The former is a little more action packed, but fiction usually are. The latter is enough to get anyone's blood pressure up. Clinton should be equated to Nero fiddling while Rome burned. Clinton diddled while this nation has suffered. Clinton and his lacky AlGore need to be in jail for crimes against the state.

It is just about sex and that is a personal matter. Nothing to see here. You are being judgemental. Move along.

Happy New Year.

We should not have to worry about terrorists coming in from Canada, our sister nation. It's time to put a great deal of pressure on her to not let terrorists in her own borders in the first place. Canada should be a buffer zone, not a hazard.

Since when shouldn't Canadians and Americans mingle freely? Now there's a threat to us because Canada can't control it's easily contollable borders?

Yes, but it wouldn't look good on the international scene. Better to make sure that our interests are not again compromised in the same way in the furture.

This is gonna sound weird but here goes...

Christmas day my family and I went out to eat at Asian Palace in Bangor, ME. There were two guys seated in a booth behind me...One seemed relatively friendly and introduced himself as Jonathan and the other, a man of Middle Eastern appearance would not give a name nor acknowledge my presence when I spoke directly to him. I said to my wife "These guys make me nervous..." and they were gone about 15 minutes later. Judging by the photos it's hard to tell if either one was one of the Five, but it is an interesting coincidence considering the fact that the 5 wanted men supposedly crossed the border Christmas eve and these guys were acting kinda weird. Also, as an interesting aside, Anyone notice this interesting coincidence in domestic islamo-terrorists...Like John Walker Lindh, John Allen Mohammed, John Lee Malvo, and then this guy at Asian palace named Jonathan...

Play Twilight Zone theme here...

Remember all the bad guys in "Buckaroo Banzai" had the same first name...John.

A White House spokesman said the intelligence came from an anti-terrorism investigation. However, the official, and an FBI spokesman, said they could not link - or rule out - a connection to a terrorist plot or cell.") (123102)

He was later found to be a member of a Montreal cell of the Algerian Armed Islamic Group, which has strong ties to Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda network, and was convicted of conspiring to blow up Los Angeles International Airport. There have also been calls to tighten immigration procedures after it was recently revealed that growing numbers of criminal and suspected terrorists were allowed into Canada last year on special permits issued by the federal government. At least 11 people who authorities believe have engaged in "terrorism, espionage or subversion by force" were granted permits that let them enter Canada despite having backgrounds that would normally keep them out -- a number that increased from two in 2000. Another 600 people convicted of a serious crime here or abroad were also among those admitted in 2001, up from 377 in 1999.") (123002)
