  • Danny Pearl’s Killer Won’t Walk — Yet, Anyway

    New York Post ^ | October 12, 2020
    Pakistan’s Supreme Court made the right call last week, ensuring that one of the killers of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl won’t walk free — at least not for now. Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheik’s been on death row since 2002 for orchestrating the kidnapping and beheading of Pearl. But a local court this year ruled he’s only guilty of the lesser charge of kidnapping and re-sentenced him to seven years, which would spring him now. Pearl’s family appealed the decision, and the high court has now agreed to delay any release while it considers the arguments, which will take...

    ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Slain U.S. journalist Daniel Pearl’s parents have petitioned to the Pakistani Supreme Court seeking to overturn a ruling that freed four men who had been convicted in 2002 of involvement in his killing, their lawyer said on Saturday... “A bare perusal of the entire record would reveal that there was a plethora of incriminating evidence, both forensic as well as oral, which proved that murder was committed and that all the accused persons aided and abetted the murder,” the appeal petition said. Islamist militant Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, a Briton of Pakistani origin who was sentenced to...

    Pearl, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, was abducted and beheaded in Karachi. A video of Pearl’s decapitation was delivered to the US consulate there. Sheikh was sentenced to death in 2002. A report released by the Pearl Project at Georgetown University has claimed that the wrong men were convicted for Pearl’s murder. Instead, the investigation says Pearl was murdered by Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks.

    The murder conviction of a British Pakistani man found guilty of the 2002 kidnapping and killing of journalist Daniel Pearl was overturned by a court in Pakistan on Thursday. The sentence of Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh was reduced to seven years in prison for the charge of kidnapping. His lawyer, Khwaja Naveed, says it was expected those years would count as time served. Saeed had spent 18 years in prison in southern Hyderabad on death row. The court also acquitted three others -- Fahad Naseem, Sheikh Adil, and Salman Saqib -- who were accused in the case and had been...

    Police in New York Tuesday announced the arrest of four suspects in an alleged terror plot. They described the plan to attack a group of Muslims in central New York state as serious and real. Brian Colaneri, 20; Vincent Vetromile, 19; Andrew Crysel, 18; and a 16-year-old suspect whose name is being withheld, were arrested Friday in the town Greece. "If they had carried out this plot, which every indication is that they were going to, people would've died," said Chief Patrick Phelan. Investigators said the suspects, who knew each other from the Boy Scouts, were targeting Islamberg, a rural...

    When Kathy Griffin released her now-infamous decapitated Donald Trump photo, even her own mother renounced the publicity stunt. “She said, ‘I am not with you on this one, Kathy. You’ve gone too far,'” Griffin recalled to The Hollywood Reporter of her 97-year-old mother’s reaction to the notorious snapshot. “It’s been really hard,” said Griffin’s boyfriend, Randy Bick, adding that his own brother, a former Marine, unfriended him on Facebook after the incident. “It seems like everybody turned.” Despite the reaction from her own loved ones, Griffin, 57, wasn’t convinced the photoshoot was a mistake until pal Rosie O’Donnell reportedly asked,...

    Some intelligence agencies warn the five men may travel to Syria and make use of its chaotic landscape to plot attacks elsewhere. Iran has released five senior al Qaeda operatives from detention and will soon allow them to leave the country, prompting fears they will join other terrorists in Syria planning attacks on the West. According to intelligence sources, three of the five are members of al Qaeda's ruling committee the Shura Council. Among those released in exchange for the Iranian diplomat was Abu al Kheir al Masri - the former head of al Qaeda's "external relations" committee, who was...
  • URGENT: FBI Map Shows 22 Terrorist Training Camps in the U.S [VIDEO]

    12/27/2014 7:40:18 AM PST · by Beave Meister · 74 replies
    This is a horrifying development. There are at least 22 active terror cells INSIDE the United States. This is according to an actual FBI map, not just some lunatic fringe, conspiracy theorist. Jamaat ul-Fuqra, which runs the camps, is an Islamic fundamentalist organization related to Al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organizations. To make matters worse, the “FBI states that their hands are tied in monitoring their activities despite a training video that is years old, possible murders, and proof of illegal activities.” These are not brand-new camps either. Homeland Security has known about them for years.
  • UN Ambassador Samantha Power’s bizarre tweet on the Islamist beheading of Daniel Pearl

    02/25/2014 5:10:59 AM PST · by SJackson · 19 replies
    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power tweeted early Monday morning that, “Daniel Pearl’s story is reminder that individual accountability & reconciliation are required to break cycles of violence.” Pearl is the Wall Street Journal reporter who was abducted in Pakistan four months after Sept. 11, 2001. Al-Qaida leader Khalid Sheikh Mohammed slit Pearl’s throat and sawed his head off on camera, after forcing the reporter to read that “My name is Daniel Pearl. I’m a Jewish American from Encino, California, U.S.A. … My father’s Jewish, my mother’s Jewish, I’m Jewish. My family follows Judaism. We’ve made numerous family...

    A British-Pakistani man convicted of the killing of US reporter Daniel Pearl has attempted to commit suicide in a Pakistani prison, an official said Saturday. "Omar Sheikh, a British-Pakistani, who is serving life imprisonment in Hyderabad prison, tried to hang himself with the exhaust of the prison cell late Friday," senior police official Akram Naeem told AFP. Pearl was working for the Wall Street Journal when he was kidnapped and beheaded in Pakistan in 2002.

    Al Jazeera may have a team of 1,000 journalists, a massive budget that expands coverage around the globe and a lofty goal of besting ratings king Fox News — but what it doesn’t have is a solid advertising base. The New York Postreports that when the network hits the airwaves Tuesday, it will do so with about half the normal cable news channel advertising load. It’ll have about six minutes of commercials per hour, compared to the 12-plus minutes broadcast by rivals Fox, CNN and MSNBC. Of those six minutes of commercials, about half will be in-house. Al Jazeera says...

    Former New York City mayor Ed Koch died Friday morning at the age of 88. He plans to be buried in Manhattan, the three-term mayor said in 2008. His headstone and a memorial bench, placed at Trinity Church Cemetery in 2009, evoke his faith and his admiration of a murdered journalist. Koch explained his plans to the Associated Press: The marker will bear the Star of David and a Hebrew prayer, “Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One.” It also will be inscribed with the last words of journalist Daniel Pearl before he was murdered by...

    An anti-terrorist judge in France has thrown weight behind claims that the murder of American journalist Daniel Pearl and the bombing of French engineers in Karachi both had their roots in murky arms deals with Pakistani officials. By FRANCE 24 (text) In 2002, two brutal terrorist attacks targeting westerners in the Pakistani city of Karachi shocked the world. In January that year, the American journalist Daniel Pearl was kidnapped before being beheaded in cold blood by his captors. A video was later released showing his execution. Three months later, on May 8, a bomber targeted a bus carrying French n

    A muckraking ex-Mormon researcher struck again this week, revealing that some Mormons conducted a proxy baptism for slain Jewish journalist Daniel Pearl last year. The disclosure comes after recent revelations that Jewish victims of the Holocaust, including Anne Frank and a parent of Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal, had been baptized by proxy by Mormons. Helen Radkey, who has been combing through Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints records for years, told CNN the Pearl incident was one of "the most egregious," because of the circumstances of Pearl's death. Pearl, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, was kidnapped in...

    Washington Post:Murder and Kidnapping of Daniel Pearl The report from the Center for Public Integrity (which is over 80 pages—the Washington Post has it all here) says that U.S. officials matched the veins in the hand seen on a video decapitating Pearl to the veins in the hand of Khalid Sheik Mohammed, who's currently in Guantanamo Bay, never to be freed. It was confirmation of KSM's own confession to the CIA. Here is the WaPo's summary of Pearl's awful end: Mohammed slashed Pearl's throat, killing him, but one of his accomplices failed to operate the video camera, which they had...

    An analysis of veins corroborates a confession by a senior al Qaeda leader that he personally beheaded Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, according to a new report released Thursday. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is suspected of planning the September 11, 2001, terror attacks on the United States. Mohammed has not denied his role in the killing of Pearl, who was abducted in January 2002. A video of the journalist's slaying was distributed online nearly a month after he was abducted, but the face of the killer who slit his throat was not visible. U.S. officials have not charged Mohammed in...
