HEAVILY armed al Qaeda thugs practiced storming a school, shooting children and taking hostages in a videotaped training exercise, The Post has learned.

The terror rehearsal took place under the mandate of al Qaeda's operations chief, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Look at 7, 18, 129 (for starters). Fyi, for future reference, you can identify the quote back reference numbers underneath the posting (in the blue links directly beneath the poster's name), and just click on that number to jump over to it, and you can (obviously) continue going back by using the same method. E.g., [To 7] < - that is what you click on.

This is really scary- scary because it is so true. It very easily could happen. These wackos are willing to inflict harm upon Americans no matter the cost. As a teacher, married to a teacher, and as the father of a school aged child, this scares the bejeesus out of me. I am comforted, however, by the thought that President Bush and our military are willing and able to do something about it. We must defeat all forms of evil in this world before they bring it to our doorstep.

Then we'll the application of rope and lamp post, tar and feathers and Rule 308 to these monsters.

LOVE IT! (but Rule 308?...whatever it is, I'm SURE it's perfect, since it's coming from you!)

I wonder if it would do any good if 'we, the freepers' printed off a couple of copies of this article, and gave them to the local school teachers we KNOW to be 'right thinking'? Awwww heck...make an EXTRA copy to give to most left-tilting teacher, just to make it 'fun to watch'. (hehehe)

Yes, it's a quite efficient tool, particularly when the threads grow so rapidly. ;-)

"There is no one to stop them since guns aren't allowed near schools."

This is the real kicker! So what do we do... lard up all the schools?

Is it too much to ask for some evidence of this and the flury of other atrocity plans? I have not forgotten LBJ's woefully sincerely look in his presentation to the nation of the Gulf of Tonkin "facts."

"These devil-worshippers will receive no mercy from the "god" they serve so well. Satan will fry them in the hottest depths of hell as he laughs at their stupidity."

It won't be Satan frying them -- the eternal fire is prepared for Satan and his angels (Matthew 25:41, fulfillment Rev. 20:9-10). The unrepentant go there because sin has corrupted the entire human race, and thus God cannot stand sin or the sinner (Psalm 5:4-5).

That's why Christ had to become cursed, or hated, for us on the cross (Galatians 3:13). By trusting in Him, and His perfect provision, there is no condemnation, for He took it upon Himself (Matthew 26:39, Romans 8:1). The cup in Matthew 26:39 stands for the cup of God's wrath (an Old Testament concept).

God Himself will excercise His never-ending wrath toward the unrepentant as a demonstration of His perfect righteousness forever. Either Christ took the wrath on the cross for those who believe, or the unrepentant experiences that wrath for himself.

That, my friend, is what Hell is -- experiencing nothing but the wrath of God. No grace, no mercy, no love. That is certainly a far worse fate than anything Satan could do to us.

"And I STILL believe armed teachers are the way to stop trouble when it starts and to protect the defenseless kids."

Amen to that! We're getting to the point (hopefully) to where legislators are just going to have to throw their hands up and admit that we have the right to carry. The best defense against terrorists and terrorism is a well-armed society in public and private.

I've already printed out multiple copie to take to the twins' high school. My question to the school 'authorities' will be, "What do you plan to do besides die when this happens here?" I'll record the answers and post them here on FR for all to see. I encourage others to do the same. Let's get our beloved school authorities' intellectual dishonesty and moral bankruptcy on record. Let's hoid them accountable for it.

Rule 308 will be applied to the worst of the America-haters. What's Rule 308? That's the caliber of the world's great battle rifles: FN FAL, M14, HK 91/G3.

Find in Scripture anywhere that killing "infidels" is prescribed. And I'm not talking about the Old Testament nation of Israel, which was a theocracy directly ruled by the LORD. He ordered pre-emptive strikes against other nations because of the threat to His beloved people.

But what didactic (teaching) passage of Scripture could even be partly twisted to invoke war against flesh and blood?

Christians who live according to the Word of God are the evil ones according to the Koran. Any Christian who would claim Jesus Christ as both Lord and God are "blasphemers" in their sight. Islam is not a religion of peace, as some claim, but submission -- voluntary submission first, forced submission second.

Rule 308 ............

Ummmm, I SEE! Love it. QUICK. Check that rule book of yours. Is there anything in there that has to do with Rule Beretta 9mm?

I think I'll do what you are, with printed copies. I have a meeting with the local school soon. Might be fun to liven it up some more!

I think when folks say these people are "sick", they mean "sick" in the colloquial sense...cruel, morbid, perverted, offensive, etc. At least that's my understanding.

I really beg to differ. All bombers are at least potentially murderous. The distinctive feature of the Islamic practice--turning young people into willing systems for bombs--is brought into focus with the adjective "suicide".

Well, I'm at a loss. My understanding has always been that the monotheists or fundamentalist muslims certainly ascribed to the "voluntary submission first, forced submission second" mantra, however there has to be other sets of beliefs despite what the Shariah gang dictates.

My buddies are just as American and just as accepting of religious differences as the next guy. I'm going to have to ask them to give me their play-by-play. At that point we'll have this conversation again.

"Practicing intruder alerts"

My kid is doing that at school too....all while the doors remain unlocked, there is NO security, as the ONE element of security they have added (an iron gate to the inner courtyard) has been WIDE OPEN every single time I have gone to the school EVERY TIME. Makes me want to get a gun and do the security patrol myself.

Each category has its own version of the "Afghan Guide to Jihad," al-Qaeda's training manual (all four versions combined are roughly 3,000 pages in length) that provides instruction to recruits for just about any situation imaginable.

Said Bahaji September 11 Cell Member  in Hamburg w/Atta At Large

*Note: There has been some contradictory information as to the status of this individual. Abu Mohammed al-Masri is a nom de guerre, hence one should not confuse him with the al-Qaeda functionary of the same name who was recently killed in Algeria working with the GSPC. Mossad reportedly had intelligence that al-Masri might have been one of the suicide bombers involved in the al-Qaeda attack in Mombasa, but near as I can tell the findings were not corroborated

**Currently "at large" because he was released by the Clinton Justice Department after "cooperating" in the investigation of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. It turns out that he was actually an Iraqi intelligence agent, and is believed to have fled to Baghdad.
