    Members of a secretive Turkish Islamic movement that is at the center of a congressional ethics committee investigation have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and to her family’s charity, a Daily Caller investigation has found.The largest donation from a leader of the Gulen movement, which is operated from Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains by a moderate Muslim cleric named Fethullah Gulen, came from Recep Ozkan.

He also served as a national...

    The government never accused Muslim Tatar, a 55-year-old pizza shop owner, of doing anything illegal. But Tatar says his life fell apart after his son was among six men charged last May in connection with a plot to attack Fort Dix. He sees his son, who he says is innocent, only through the glass wall at a federal detention center. He has been called a terrorist - and worse. He has health problems. He lost his pizza shop and struggled to find another job as a part-time cook. "My mortgage is behind," he said. "Everything's a big problem. My family...

    (CBS/AP) NEW YORK -- The question was simple: Would you like to die as a martyr? The putative terrorist unhesitatingly replied yesthere was no greater way to die in Islam. The right answer put the man in the midst of a terrorist plot conceived as more devastating than the 9/11 attacks. He was soon making surveillance trips around John F. Kennedy International Airportthe chicken farm, as the planners dubbed their target -- and visiting the Trinidad compound of a radical Muslim group.

    Nearly three years ago, Brian Morgenstern was a college dropout more or less content with his job as an assistant manager at a Mount Laurel Circuit City. Then a man dropped off a videotape, asking that it be converted to DVD. Morgenstern's life hasn't been the same since. On the tape, he saw men firing rifles and shouting "Allah akbar," Arabic for "God is great." He found the images disturbing enough that he contacted local police, prompting an investigation that culminated in Monday's convictions of five Muslim immigrants from South Jersey on charges of plotting to kill U.S. soldiers. Today,...

    CAMDEN, New Jersey (Reuters) Five Muslim men accused of planning an attack on a U.S. army base had no intention of following through even though they shared Muslim anger toward America after September 11, defense attorneys said on Tuesday. The men, all born outside the United States, plotted but did not execute an attack on Fort Dix in New Jersey and discussed attacks on other installations including Dover Air Force Base in Delaware and the U.S. Coast Guard in Philadelphia, prosecutors say. They were arrested in May 2007 and face life in prison if convicted. In closing arguments after...

    CAMDEN, N.J. Five men who planned an attack on a New Jersey military base were inspired by al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden, a prosecutor said Monday during opening statements in their terrorism trial. The government has presented the case as one of the most frightening examples of homegrown terrorism since the Sept. 11 attacks. Authorities said that in 2006 and 2007, the men turned paintball games into terrorist training sessions and met to discuss a plot to sneak onto the Army's Fort Dix base and kill soldiers. No attack was carried out. "Their motive was to defend Islam. Their...

    Barack Obama's critics appropriately have spotlighted his ties to William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, the remorseless co-founders and leaders of the terrorist Weather Underground. However, Obama's detractors largely overlook Ayers' campaign contribution to Obama.On April 2, 2001, Ayers donated $200 to Obama's Illinois State Senate re-election campaign. Though not a jackpot, this represents Ayers' only recorded political contribution.The Illinois State Board of Elections' online database shows that Ayers donated to no other candidate. The websites of the Federal Elections Commission, The Center for Responsive Politics (opensecrets.org), and NewsMeat.com indicate that Ayers has made no disclosed federal campaign contributions.Why is...

    By now, everyone is familiar with the insensitive words uttered by Shock Jock Imus which appeared in Mary Mostert's commentary of 12 May Either Al Sharpton Should be Fired or Don Imus Should Be Re-Hired. We should also not forget what happened to comedian "Kramer," from the Seinfeld Show when he railed against two black hecklers in the audience during a performance by calling them the n-word. Just like Imus, his racist comments cost him his job. But what happens when a U.S. diplomat shows his true character when he rails against an entire race of people during war? Not...

    MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. -- A Circuit City clerk credited with making the tip that brought down an alleged plot to kill soldiers said Tuesday, in his first media interview, that it took a day of pondering before he made the tip. Speaking on CNN's "American Morning," Brian Morganstern described how two men brought him a videotape to transfer to DVD in late January 2006. He said he went home that night and told his family what he had seen: Ten men at a firing range with handguns, rifles and what he thought were fully automatic rifles. Authorities later said they...

    Howie Carr is now on WRKO-MA in Boston. He is relating a report from NJ that states that several of the gang that was plotting to murder US soldiers at Ft. Dix had at least 54 arrests for driving without drivers' licenses and dealing drugs. In none of these cases, according to Carr, were NJ authorities allowed to enquire into their immigration statuses nor to jail them. They simply received warnings and orders not to drive any more because they were not citizens and thus immune to the punishment a citizen would have received. Are we really this crazy and...

    It was August 2006 when one of the young Muslim men accused of plotting to kill soldiers at Fort Dix first broached the idea, according to the authorities. Talking to an informer who was secretly taping the exchange, the young man said that he thought he could round up six or seven other men willing to take part, and that a rocket-propelled grenade might be the most effective weapon, the authorities said. And he had one more notion: He wanted the informer to lead the attack, according to a federal complaint. “I am at your services,” the young man is...
  • Brothers behind Fort Dix plot were from pro-U.S. enclave (Idiotical Claim, Isn It?)

    DEBAR, Macedonia — Three Muslim brothers who allegedly helped plot to kill soldiers at a U.S. Army post in New Jersey have roots in one of Europe's most pro-American corners — a region that remains grateful to the United States for ending the Kosovo war. Dritan Duka, 28, Shain Duka, 26, and Eljvir Duka, 23, who were arrested in New Jersey this week in what U.S. authorities said was a bungled scheme to blow up and gun down soldiers at Fort Dix, were born in Debar, a remote town on Macedonia's rugged border with Albania. ...

    (CNSNews.com) - Four of the ten men who took part in a jihadist training exercise in the Pocono Mountains last year have yet to be charged in connection with the planned terrorist attack on Fort Dix, N.J. A DVD showing 10 Islamic radicals firing assault rifles and calling for jihad spurred the federal investigation that culminated in six arrests this week. But what about the other four? "We know where they are and the investigation continues," Jerri Williams, a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, told Cybercast News Service. "However, at this time we do not have evidence...
