Woman With Possible Terror Ties Arrested

Federal agents believe a South African woman they have in custody may have ties to terrorists.

Farida Goolam Mahomed Ahmed was taken into custody Monday when she tried to board a plane at McAllen Miller International Airport. The Federal Bureau of Investigation would not release any information Thursday, but NEWSCHANNEL 5 obtained court papers filed by an FBI Special Agent assigned to the bureau's Joint Terrorism Task Force.

The documents show that Border Patrol Agents stopped Ahmed at the airport while conducting an inspection. When asked for her status in the United States, Ahmed presented a South African passport with no entry or exit stamps and some pages torn away. She was also carrying a bag of wet, muddy clothes with her travel documents.

Investigators found travel itineraries showing that Ahmed flew from South Africa to London, via the United Arab Emirates on July 8. Six days later, Ahmed flew from London to Mexico City. After initially claiming her VISA was left in New York, Ahmed later admitted that she was smuggled into the United States through the Texas border.

Ahmed is facing three charges of violating United States Code, including making false statements, mutilating her passport, and entering the country illegally.

Yeah, probably just vacationers who are here legally with visas . I posted on the FR terrorist thread that they say is monitored by the FBI anyway though. I was just wondering how thoughly cameras are checked that are brought on board.

No ....

She is from South Africa....I want to see a photo of her.

I would wager she isn't arab looking.

Remember AQ is recruiting NON-ARABS.

Well, as swarthyguy noted, a good number of Chechen and Kashmiri al-Qaeda affiliates have honed the fine art of female suicide bombers. I don't see any reason why the core network would adopt all that much of a different approach.

Uh, "walk" is what you do when you go through the border check points on foot. She more likely waded, swam, crawled, sneaked, slithered, etc. etc. As for the reason?

"It's completely out of control."

You must have missed all the - don't worry, be happy - talk going on these days. We are safer now than we were on 9/11; this seems to be the new DC chorus. 911 Commission, Condi Rice & almost every other politician heading out of town for a 9 week vacation.

When the doggie doo hits the fan, chant to yourself - we're safer now, we're safer now, we're safer now - that will make it so.

Perhaps, but there is a large population of Muslims in SA, originally from places like British India and Malaysia.

Woman With Possible Terror Ties Arrested (smuggled thru our southern boarder)

Jermaine Jackson(L), brother of Michael Jackson, Jackson family spokesman Firpo W. Carr(C) and Khawaja Khurshid Reshi hold a rug with a woven picture of Michael Jackson April 19, 2004, in Manama. Jermaine Jackson, in the Gulf to promote understanding between Muslims and his fellow Americans, said Tuesday that Muslims are 'the new Negroes in America.' Jermaine, a convert to Islam and dressed in white Arab garb, has been speaking about Islam and U.S. 'adventures' in Iraq to enthusiastic audiences at Koranic centers and universities in the Gulf Arab state of Bahrain.

"HEIL HITLER" Now Upgraded to "ALLAH AKBAR?"

You may already know about this one: O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for friends. [al-Ma'idah 5:51.11]

But did you know that there are 123 verses in the Quran concerning fighting and killing for the cause of Allah? Here are but a few passages:

-Muslims are encouraged to be wholly occupied (Sura 2:273) with fighting for Allah's cause.

- Allah will give "a far richer recompense to those who fight for him" (Sura 4:96).

- Regarding infidels (unbelievers), they are the Muslim's "inveterate enemies" (Sura 4:101). Muslims are to "arrest them, besiege them and lie in ambush everywhere" (Sura 9:5) for them. They are to "seize them and put them to death wherever you find them, kill them wherever you find them, seek out the enemies of Islam relentlessly" (Sura 4:90). "Fight them until Islam reigns supreme" (Sura 2:193). "Cut off their heads, and cut off the tips of their fingers" (Sura 8:12).

- If a Muslim does not go to war, Allah will kill him (Sura 9:39). He is to be told, "the heat of war is fierce, but more fierce is the heat of Hell-fire" (Sura 9:81).

- A Muslim must "fight for the cause of Allah with the devotion due to him" (Sura 22:78)

- Muslims must make war on the infidels (unbelievers) who live around them (Sura 9:123).

- Muslims are to be "ruthless to unbelievers" (Sura 48:29).

- A Muslim should "enjoy the good things" he has gained by fighting (Sura 8:69).

- A Muslim can kill any person he wishes if it be a "just cause" (Sura 6:152).

- Allah loves those who "fight for his cause" (Sura 61:3).
Anyone who fights against Allah or renounces Islam in favor of another religion shall be "put to death or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off alternative sides" (Sura 5:34).

- Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him. Sahih Al-Bukhari (9:57)

- Slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush. (Koran 9:5)

- Take him and fetter him and expose him to hell fire. (Koran 69:30-37)

- I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, Smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger tips of them. (Koran 8:12)

- They should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides. (Koran 5:33)

- Know that paradise is under the shades of swords. Sahih al-Bukhari Vol 4 p55

And Speaking of Paradise...

"There will be "gushing fountains" and everyone "shall recline on jeweled couches face to face, and there shall wait on them immortal youths with bowls and ewers and a cup of purest wine." Suras (or chapters) 55 and 56 of the Quran.

"Therein are bashful virgins whom neither man nor jinnee will have touched before ... virgins as fair as corals and rubies," sura 55. A few lines later, you might remind them of "virgins chaste and fair ... they shall recline on green cushions and fine carpets."

"The smallest reward for the people of Paradise is an abode where there are 80,000 servants and 72 wives, over which stands a dome decorated with pearls, aquamarine, and ruby, as wide as the distance from Al-Jabiyyah [a Damascus suburb] to Sana'a.'"

It will be the day, God willing, you spend with the women of paradise...Know that the gardens of paradise are waiting for you in all their beauty, and the women of paradise are waiting, calling out, "Come hither, friend of God."

I personally believe the next wave of suicide bombers will be women, deceived and working for Al Quada. WE had better be alert in this country, men aren't all we should be checking.

I expect an attempt of sizable proportions, and the DNC appears to be a target. I am praying for protection of all political meetings, since their plan is to disrupt our process. ALL temporary workers should really be examined thoroughly, at any crowded place this year.

The terrorists really don't care the Americans political affiliation, as long as they are Americans. Infidels are US citizens, period in terrorists minds.

APATHY needs to be thing of past in USA.

The clerk told me that recently they haven't been able to keep them in stock because the "Mexican Nationals" buying them up as fast as they can get them.

Interesting, I wonder if other border towns also have camera shortages ??

Yep, and as mentioned in #43, she surely came across with the rest of her platoon. Wonder where the others are, right about now?

Has the clerk mentioned this to the FBI or someone like Homeland Security? Yeah, I know, they wouldn't listen anyway. Some of our "guardians" have their head in a dark place. (NOT the military, they are the ones keeping watch)

People keep reporting clues, who's connecting the darn dots?

Aren't you so thrilled that they can now bring truckloads of them courtesy of Nafta all the way into the states???

Just another horrendous example of our government giving us the finger for the sake of political correctness, slave labor and possible future votes... As an American, I am outraged.

Shame on the politicians who aren't outraged as well!

Al Qaeda used to have their people claim they lost their passports, in order to obtain new ones that wouldn't show entry stamps from Pakistan and Afghanistan. Those stamps, along with Abu Dabai, represent the standard terrorist routings into and out of Afghanistan/Pakistan for meetings with AQ officials, and they make for a guaranteed arrest at the US border, and at other war on terror allied borders.

But then the Embassies started getting wise to the "lost passport" ruse, and started asking questions. This could easily explain the pages torn from this lady's passport, but here's the rub. South Africa and London are not part of the standard route. Why tear those stamps from a passport? Obviously they were, as she did not have those stamps, or any others in her passport. A simple explanation would be that she tore out other, previous stamps, along with the SA and British ones, leading me to question where she was before South Africa.

If she is already part of a specific terrorist operation, she could be executing last minute meetings with her handlers, which would explain a trip out of the country and back in. She could be coming in for an operation, but if so, her method of entry indicates she is a low level "muscle" type, not a planner or leader. A leader's initial entry would be through the "front door" to keep her clean record clean. Later on she might test different entry methods, risky methods, much like Mohammed Atta did after overseas meetings while the 9/11 plot was well underway.

The point of all this is, if she is AQ connected, she is either general, non-operational "support", or else the operation she is connected with may well be in the final stages. As a leader she would have the planning well underway before needing to meet with her handlers, and if she's a muscle type, they usually don't arrive until an attack is imminent.
