UNITED 93 – How Ordinary American’s Defend America

UNITED 93 is a timely reminder of why America is where it is today; why we are a nation at war.

29 April 2006: I’ve just emerged from a local theater screening of Universal Studios new release, UNITED 93. This movie will take you back to September 11, 2001 – literally. Every American MUST see this film.

Theater patrons stood up from their seats and departed as the widescreen credits rolled. We did so in near total silence, with only faintest of muted whispers between husbands and wives being heard in obvious tribute to these brave American patriots. The R-rating ensured that those viewing were 17 or older and this rating is obviously due to the numerous expletives uttered by those charged with our defense who were powerless to effect any defense. This film needs to be seen by all American’s as it is the ultimate reality of our current existence which has been brought to our homeland by Islamic foreigners who seek our destruction. The passengers of UNITED 93 truly were the original first responders on September 11.

These ordinary American citizens were the first to take up arms, to physically strike back at the Islamist murders who years before had declared war on our Republic. This was the first chance for American civilians to do so. The FAA couldn’t do a thing, nor could the air traffic controllers. The best they could do is attempt to control and out-of-their-control military attack. The US military was also totally caught off-guard, feebly scrambling a couple of unarmed fighter aircraft into the blue yonder with no guidance or rules of engagement. This attack was in our collective faces and this is why I am certain, with a high degree of probability, that the leaders of the in-flight insurrection decided to move as they did. They had their chance and they took it.

This is our history and our future due to the undeniable fact that the Islamic enemy is telling us they are coming for us again. UNITED 93 is a timely reminder of why America is where it is today; why we are a nation at war. In this regard alone UNITED 93 is the most important film to have been created in the post-9/11 world. Go see this film at your earliest convenience as a tribute to these hero’s who have sacrificed everything out of unconditional love for their country. They deserve nothing less from us all.

While I am on the subject of average American citizens acting in defiance of alien intruders, I am reminded that there is something tangible all patriots can do for America on Monday, May 1, 2006. I call on all who will heed this call to BOYCOTT those illegal aliens who currently are planning to attempt to shut down the economy of this Republic on that day. I am urging each of you who read this to boycott the so-called “Great American Boycott” as there is nothing American about it. This is nothing more than a blatant anti-American act of economic terrorism which non-American citizens are going to attempt to impose upon us all from sea to shining sea next Monday.

ter•ror•ism -”The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.” - American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition

Here’s what you can do:

1. Ensure your children go to school and stay there.

2. Declare your economic freedom. Go shopping for food or anything your household might require, buy gasoline, and engage yourself in procuring or utilizing all products and services which the May Day protestors will attempt to shut down.

3. Go see the movie UNITED 93.

4. Donate whatever you can to the various groups seeking to defend America’s borders, groups such as The Minuteman Project: http://www.minutemanproject.com/

Visit this website: http://www.terroristwarning.com for full details which are contained in their editorial on this Communist planned and inspired event and several linked articles detailing specific participants, which will include Islamic terrorist-linked organizations.

Do the passengers and crew of UNITED 93 proud and defend America on May 1, 2006 and every day!

Stolen Cessna Aircraft Still Missing

Cessna 150

Cessna 150

“Somebody had to have known something about airplanes because it was definitely not air worthy.”

28 April 2006: A 1967 Cessna 150H, similar in appearance to the above image, was stolen from the Tooele County Airport southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah sometime between April 9th and April 14th, 2006. The blue and white plane bearing tail number: N-6399S had been grounded for the last six years and “was not airworthy” when stolen. Although Tooele county authorities said that they don’t have much information to go on at this time, they “have a pretty good idea of how the thief got away with the plane.”According to Tooele County Sheriff Lt. Duke North, “somebody had to have known something about airplanes because it was definitely not air worthy.” He stated that the stolen plane had been grounded since 2000. “The tires were flat or going flat and the landing gear needed to be pumped up.” The battery was also missing. “Whoever stole the plane knew enough to re-inflate the tires and give the plane a quick fix before stealing the aircraft.”

Since prior to the attacks of 9/11, the FBI has been investigating the use of small aircraft that might be used to conduct terror attacks. According to numerous FBI and JTTF Intelligence Bulletins, terrorists could fill a small aircraft full of high explosives or drop a bomb containing radiological, chemical or biological agents from a private aircraft. It is also important to note that several of the hijackers involved in the September 11 attacks were part of a network of Islamic terrorists who were learning to fly small aircraft for such attacks.

According to information provided to the Northeast Intelligence Network from the Tooele County Sheriff’s Department this morning, the aircraft remains missing and they have no significant leads. The Northeast Intelligence Network is awaiting further comment from Lt. Duke North, the lead investigator on this matter for Tooele county.

Hezbollah, Illegal Immigration, and the Next 9/11

By LTC Joseph Myers and Patrick Poole

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This article was prepared and approved before the London Times report this past weekend which verified that longtime Hezbollah terror chief, Imad Mugniyah, has been tapped by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to initiate attacks against the West, especially the U.S., in the event that any preemptive strikes are made against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

28 April 2006: From the Article: “It is too early to predict how the current diplomatic crisis over Iran’s nuclear weapons program will play out, but Americans should assume that any potential military hostilities could result in Hezbollah striking American interests across the globe and here in the US Homeland. Possibly the Iranian ayatollahs may decide that preemptive Hezbollah suicide attacks against America might serve as a deterrent to U.S. military action against their nuclear facilities. A strategic wave of Hezbollah suicide bombings, and well coordinated military attacks in America could very well make the horror and tragedy of the last 9/11 look like a distant memory. Few realists doubt that we live in a dangerous world and most Americans understand that ‘freedom is not free,’ nonetheless, in the aftermath of another terrorist outrage on U.S. soil, new government commissions won’t impede Americans demanding accountability.”

————————–
English Text of Ayman al Zawahiri Video Message

In the name of Allah, and all praise is due to Allah, and may peace and prayers be upon the Messenger of Allah, and upon his family, companions, and allies.

Muslim brothers everywhere: peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah and His blessings.

The first thing that I want to talk to you about is the third anniversary of the American invasion of Iraq.

We praise Allah that three years after the Crusader invasion of Iraq, America, Britain and their allies have achieved nothing but losses, disasters and misfortunes. They have become embroiled in Iraq in an unenviable way, despite Bush and Blair’s continuous lying. And these losses and misfortunes only happened with the sacrifices of the Mujahideen and their enthusiasm for death in Allah’s path. The group Qaeda al-Jihad in the Land of the Two Rivers alone has carried out 800 martyrdom operations in 3 years, besides the sacrifices of the other Mujahideen, and this is what has broken the back of America in Iraq.

The sacrifices of the heroic Mujahideen have also exposed the total inconsistency of Western doctrine, and perhaps this moral and material defeat of the Western Crusade will motivate the West to review its ideological system in its entirety, if it desires the facts or hopes for salvation.

And just as the heroic Mujahideen’s sacrifices have defeated the Crusader alliance morally and materially, they have also exposed the faction of traitors falsely associated with the Muslims, these traitors who made pacts with the Crusaders before, during and after the invasion, and prevented the Jihad against the occupation, and helped to establish it in Iraq, and promised it that they will be loyal guards of its interests after it leaves; they are traitors, even if they dress like the Muslims or have the same names; they are traitors, even if their beards are long and turbans great; they are traitors, even if they claim noble descent or a connection with the unseen or any other kind of charlatanism and superstition; they are traitors, and Allah, and His Messenger, and his righteous Companions, and pure People of his House, and the Islamic Ummah are innocent of them one and all. How can they claim affiliation to Islam when the Lord of Glory has given a verdict about them in His Book, saying,

“O ye who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily, Allah guideth not a people unjust.” Al-Maidah 5:51

Those who are in Iraq, and those affiliated to the clan of Hashim in Jordan, and their peers on the Arabian Peninsula, those who permit the recognition of Israel and making peace with it, and those like them in Egypt, who help France against the veiled Muslim women and receive the Israeli ambassador in noble al-Azhar and hand over Wafa Qistintin for torture in the dungeons of the monasteries: all of them are traitors, and the Muslim Ummah must confront them, lest they stab it from behind while it is exposing its chest to the rockets and bullets of the enemies.

As for the second thing I wish to talk to you about, it is the dark fate towards which the traitor Musharraf is pushing Pakistan. Without a doubt, Pakistan is one of the most important of the countries targeted by this new colonialist Crusade which seeks to weaken Pakistan and fragment it into entities under the control of India, which is allied with the Americans and Jews.

And here I wish to clarify an extremely important point, which is that the anti-Islamic American/Crusader/Zionist plan has no place for the presence of Pakistan as a strong, powerful, able state in South Asia, because this plan doesn’t forgive Pakistan for separating from India in the name of Islam, and doesn’t forgive it for including the largest Islamic schools with wide influence among the Muslims of South and Central Asia, and doesn’t forgive it for the flourishing of the popular Jihadi movements in it against the Indians in Kashmir and first the Russians and then the Americans in Afghanistan, and doesn’t forgive it the favorable response of its people, scholars, students, Mujahideen and tribes to the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan – since its founding and to this very day – and to its Amir the lion of Islam Mulla Muhammad Umar, may Allah protect him, and doesn’t forgive it its overwhelming public sympathy for the call of Shaykh Usama bin Ladin for Jihad to expel the Americans and Jews from the holy places of the Muslims and their homes.

In this context, India appears to be the best candidate to implement the Zionist/Crusader plan to humiliate Pakistan and weaken it and tear it apart.

And Bush’s recent visit to Pakistan at the beginning of March was one of the biggest pieces of evidence of that, as he gave a strong push to India’s nuclear program while handing out orders and instructions in Pakistan. And I will review with you in brief just a few of the many woes and misfortunes which Musharraf and his supporters have brought upon Pakistan.

The first of these woes is Musharraf’s combating of Islam in Pakistan. With an order from the Crusaders, he provided all the backing needed to expel the Islamic Emirate from Kabul. And he has made war on the Islamic schools, and is seeking to review the Hudood Act, in addition to inventing – with Crusader guidance – a new Qadiani creed which invites the people to an Islam without Jihad and without enjoining of good and prohibition of evil and without observation of the rules of the Shari’ah, which he calls “Enlightened Moderation.”

The second of these woes is Musharraf’s threat to Pakistani national security. Musharraf was the primary backer of the ouster of the Islamic Emirate from Kabul, and was the primary reason for the establishment of a government in Kabul allied to America and India and hostile to Pakistan. And as a result of Musharraf’s betrayal, Indian intelligence has crept close to the Pakistan-Afghan border and opened its consulates in the cities adjacent to Pakistan. And the Pakistani Army, with the exit of the Taliban government from Kabul, became a double loser: first, the Pakistani Army lost the strategic depth which Afghanistan, with its highlands and mountains, can offer it in any Pakistani-Indian confrontation. And second, the Pakistani Army’s back became exposed to a regime hostile to it and allied with its enemies. And if you add to this India’s success in exploiting air bases in Tajikistan and its seeking military cooperation with the Central Asian states, you will realize the extent of the predicament which the Pakistani Army has gotten itself into.

And Musharraf is the one who placed the Pakistani nuclear program under American – and hence Jewish and Indian – supervision. Musharraf exploited America’s accusation of Abdul Qadeer Khan to impose its surveillance upon the Pakistani nuclear program.

And then is it credible that Abdul Qadeer Khan was outside the surveillance of Pakistani military intelligence? Thus, the first ones who should be brought to trial in the case of Abdul Qadeer Khan are the leaders of the Pakistani Army and intelligence. But Abdul Qadeer Khan was used as a scapegoat to please America.

And Musharraf is the one who is fanning the flames of civil war in Pakistan on behalf of America, in Waziristan and Baluchistan, in a bloody conflict whose losses have no end, and which will only rebound on Pakistan with the worst of damages.

The worst thing any army in the world could wish for is that it be assigned to defend the borders of its country at a time when it is embroiled in an internal civil war. Pakistani memory has yet to forget the catastrophe caused by the civil war in East Pakistan. And what Musharraf has done in Bajaur, Waziristan and Baluchistan, he will repeat in Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar, and indeed, any place the Americans request him to strike.

And Musharraf is the one who is seeking to change the combat doctrine of the Pakistani Army by repeating that the real danger to Pakistan is from within and not foreign: i.e., he is inciting the Pakistani Army to fight its people and brothers and turn a blind eye to the Indian threat. And if the combat doctrine of any army becomes corrupted, and its fighting turns into fighting for the sake of salary and position alone, then this army will run away from the battlefield whenever fighting breaks out.

And how is it possible for the Pakistani officer or soldier to be persuaded that he is defending Islam when he is the one who enabled the Americans to kill tens of thousands of Muslims in Afghanistan, and enabled them to oust the Islamic Emirate from Kabul? And how is it possible for the Pakistani officer or soldier to be persuaded that he is defending the sanctity of Pakistanis when his commanders order him to kill women and children in his own country? And how is it possible for the Pakistani officer or soldier to be persuaded that he is defending the honor and dignity of Pakistan when he sees his leaders order him to carry out a new slaughter every time they are visited by a high-ranking American official?

The third of these woes is Musharraf’s squandering of the issue of Kashmir and his painstaking effort to dispose of it at any cost. Musharraf is the one who strangled the Jihadi resistance against India, which led it to increase its savagery and draw up the borders.

And Musharraf is the one who made and continues to make one concession after another in the Kashmir issue, even as India hasn’t budged one step from its stance. And Musharraf is the one who seeks to deceive the Muslim Ummah in Pakistan by pretending to them that the problem with India will be resolved with confidence-building measures, in order to neutralize the effort to liberate Kashmir, which is the real problem between Pakistan and India.

And Musharraf is the one who wars against the Arab Mujahideen and their brothers from all corners of the Islamic world, who represent one of the most important weapons in the liberation of Kashmir, in the same way that they contributed before to the liberation of Afghanistan from the Russians.

And Musharraf is the one who brought American military and intelligence forces to Kashmir under the pretext of helping the victims of the earthquake. They came in under this cover and commenced to strengthen their defenses and fortifications in order to establish permanent Crusader bases on the Pakistani-Indian border.

The fourth of these woes is Musharraf’s recognition of Israel, to psychologically prepare the Pakistanis to recognize a Hindu state in Kashmir.

The fifth of these woes is his affront to Pakistani dignity and sovereignty when he gave free reign to American intelligence and investigative agencies in Pakistan, and turned Pakistan’s army and security services into hunting dogs at the service of the Crusaders.

The sixth of these woes is his corruption of political life in Pakistan. Through bribery and election fraud, Musharraf declared himself president and formed a party of bribe-takers and opportunists which he provided with a parliamentary majority, and distributed to them and the rest of his supporters the country’s treasures, which he had seized, even though he is the same one who claimed at the beginning of his rule that he came to combat fiscal corruption in Pakistan.

And the West, which claims to defend democracy, was hostile to Musharraf at the outset of his rule, but later did a U-turn in admiration of him and his treachery, and indeed, today encourages him to stay in power at any means, after he demonstrated his aptitude for killing Muslims.

Musharraf’s real problem is bribery. And Musharraf reckons that his success in procuring wealth will only be achieved by betraying Pakistan and appeasing America and throwing himself at its feet. But he forgets the other half of the reality, which is that America tosses its agents into the rubbish bin when there is no longer any need for them. And were he to look across his western borders, he would see the fate of the Shah bearing witness to that, when they ordered him to leave Iran, and then deprived him of asylum and indeed, even medical treatment, which he only found with his friend the bribe-taker Anwar Sadat.

And in keeping with Musharraf’s worship of wealth and his mad dash for bribes, he tries to persuade the Pakistani people that they must take care of their interests without paying attention to any moral or religious considerations. This is the same logic of drug dealers, white slavery gangs, spies and traitors, and the outcome of this attitude is the loss of this world and the next. Allah the Exalted says, “Satan threatens you with poverty and bids you to immorality, while Allah promises you His forgiveness and bounties, and Allah cares for all and He knows all things.” Al-Baqarah 2:268

I address the Pakistani people, to call on them to stand today in the ranks of Islam against the Zionist/Crusader assault on the Islamic Ummah and on Pakistan, and I call on them to strive in earnest to topple this bribe-taking, treacherous criminal, and to back their brothers the Mujahideen in Afghanistan with everything they’ve got until they defeat the plan of the Crusaders and Zionists allied with India.

I also call the Pakistani Army’s attention to the dismal fate which awaits them in this life and the other, for the Pakistan Army has turned into forces aligned under Bush’s cross in his Crusade against Islam and Muslims, just as it has become a tool in the destruction and tearing apart of Pakistan.

Let every soldier and officer in the Pakistani Army know that Allah has threatened anyone who allies himself with the infidels against the Muslims with a painful punishment. Allah the Exalted says, “To the hypocrites give the good tidings that there is for them a grievous chastisement; those who take for friends unbelievers rather than believers: is it honor they seek among them? Nay, all honor is with Allah.” Al-Nisa 4:138-139

And let every soldier and officer in the Pakistani Army know that Musharraf is throwing them into the burner of civil war in exchange for the bribes which he took from the Americans, and that he doesn’t care if 10,000 or 20,000 Pakistani troops are killed, as long as his pockets are full of bribes. And let them know that Musharraf has made preparations to flee abroad – where he has his secret accounts – upon the victory of the popular revolution.

For this reason, I call upon every officer and soldier in the Pakistani army to disobey the orders of his commanders to kill Muslims in Pakistan and Afghanistan, or otherwise he will be confronted by the Mujahideen who repelled the British and Russians before. The Truth – Exalted is He – says, “Say to those who have disbelieved, if they cease (from disbelief), their past will be forgiven. But if they return (thereto), then the examples of those (punished) before them have already preceded (as a warning). And fight them until there is no more fitnah (disbelief and polytheism) and the religion will all be for Allah alone (in the whole of the world) But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do. And if they turn away, then know that Allah is your Maula (Patron, Lord, Protector and Supporter) – (what) an excellent Maula, and (what) an Excellent Helper.” Al-Anfal 8:38-39

And our final prayer is that all praise is due to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and may Allah send prayers and peace upon our master Muhammad and his family and companions.

Analysis: Going It Alone With Iran

By Randy Taylor, Independent analyst

“Whatever is going to happen, it has to be in the near term… The Islamic snake is growing rapidly and the threat only grows larger and stronger as time goes by.”

27 April 2006: Articles in the media have been overwhelming lately detailing the growing tensions between the United States and Israel against Iran. There has been heated debate over whether the United States would give Israel the nod on an attack on Iranian nuclear facilities, or whether it would be a joint effort between Israel and Iran. This is a very delicate matter in one strong regard: the United States would most likely NOT give the nod to Israel to attack, but instead will lean towards sanctions and a political solution or mount an attack alone or with a few loyal allies, with Israel noticeably left out. To minimize the chances of the Middle East erupting immediately into World War III, Israel would most likely be asked to stay out of an offensive measure but allowed to defend herself against any collateral attacks that would most likely occur if the United States were to attack Iran.

The United States could probably engage Iran and even Syria without upsetting the delicate balance in the region. If Israel were to engage in an attack or war with Iran, the “moderate” or even US friendly countries would be placed into a very precarious position considering that their populations are Muslim. The blood feud between Israel and the Middle East goes back too many centuries and the underlying hatred for Israel by all Muslim countries would erupt almost immediately into warfare against Israel across the board. On the other hand, the United States could get away with attacking Iran because the Middle East OPEC countries have a love of money that supersedes many things except a blood feud many centuries old.

Israel has been stifled and held back for years from attacking anyone in the region large scale. If you recall during the first Gulf War, Israel was attacked with SCUD missiles by Iraq and acted only with defensive measures, by US request. Land given back to Palestinians and concessions made to Palestine have been solely at the request from the United States. If we attack Iran, Israel will be most likely asked to act purely defensively even though they are the exact target of Iran. They would be told beforehand that an attack on Iran by the United States is not a green light to invade Palestine which if left to their own devices, an invasion of Palestine would have happened long ago. Since Palestine has always been a point of contention with the Muslim countries, it would be critical for Israel to remain as is and not move into Palestine militarily or it would bring up the blood feud and many “fence straddling” Muslim countries would go to the defense of the Palestinian people.

Remember, I’m not saying I’m in agreement with anything stated here, I’m just telling you the likelihood of certain things and the “why” behind some decisions that will be made.

In a worst case scenario, if Iran directly attacks Israel in any way, then all bets are off. The strike would most likely be nuclear in nature as Iran would want to try to incapacitate Israel with the first strikes. Bearing in mind that Iran isn’t interested in winning a war to the same extent that they are interested and determined in starting a war, it is Iran that would strike first in any Iranian/Israeli conflict.

In order to head off the entire region breaking into war, if there is to be a pre-emptive strike against Iran, it would have to be an attack by the United States and other allies. If we don’t bring Iran to task very soon, there are two scenarios to be prepared for. Iran will most likely attack Israel, thrusting Israel into a war which would create a “Pandora’s box” of sorts as all relationships will become strained in the region with the United States as we certainly would come to the aid of Israel much as a big brother would do for the smaller family member. Remember, these are Muslims first and they would be required to defend their brother country Iran in a “blood feud.” The only countries that would get upset with the US due to a US attack on Iran without Israel would certainly be Russia, Syria and Turkey, the latter mostly because of their unfortunate location. Of course China wouldn’t be real happy, but their displeasure would most likely be verbal in nature.

The immediate results of the United States attacking Iran will be seen in our streets here in this country. The imbedded Islamic cells that exist here will unleash a multitude of attacks, using many different attack venues and a variety of weapons. Islamic planners and extremists sent agents into this country long before they overthrew the Shah of Iran and gained control of that country. This country has been a target of Islam ever since we ushered Israel into the status of being a country back in the 40’s. We are hated regardless of our business relationships. We are hated because we represent everything that Islam is against.

The second scenario is just as scary. In 2008 a democrat could end up in the White House and then the United States would be in a most precarious position. Historically the democrats have conceded and overlooked much of the problem created by Islam. They historically have coddled Islam. If a democrat had made it into the White House on the last go around, we would have a Taliban run country known as the former country of Iraq and we would probably be selling arms to Iran to be used against us later. Arabic would be the second language in our schools and Islamic organizations would have offices on the second floor of the White House. They are almost there now.

Whatever is going to happen, it has to be in the near term meaning fairly soon. The Islamic snake is growing rapidly and the threat only grows larger and stronger as time goes by. There is strong talk about alternative fuels, less dependence on foreign oil and other measures. The reality, however is this: any plans or changes made in our oil dependence will take years to implement and make into reality.

…And we don’t have years.

As-Sahab Releases Complete bin Laden Message

27 April 2006: The Northeast Intelligence Network has secured a complete copy of the 51 minute 38 second audio message of Osama bin Laden that was released yesterday by As-Sahab, the production company and public relations arm of al-Qaeda. Last Sunday, the al-Jazeera network aired only 5 minutes, 45 seconds of this message which threatens attacks on civilians in the west in response to “a continuous crusader-Zionist war on Islam.”

The message, which appears as a video format with English subtitles, shows a static image of Osama bin Laden looking down the barrel of a gun (shown above). In his speech, bin Laden references the cartoon “insults” to Muhammed and their propagation, speaks at length about the “Zionist/Crusader alliance” against Islam, and various acts of war against Islam in Iraq, Afghanistan and Chechnya.

It is important to note that Al-Jazeera broadcast only four short extracts from the tape and simply summarized some parts or completely omitted other parts. Bin Laden cited the West’s treatment of the Palestinians’ elected Hamas government as evidence of a war against Islam. The blockade which the west is imposing on the government of Hamas proves that there is a Zionist-crusader war on Islam,” he said in the message.

The Northeast Intelligence Network is offering the entire 51:38 message (a 37.5 MB file) for download below.

The message published by As-Sahab Productions was secured and provided to the Northeast Intelligence Network courtesy of “Archangel.”

Yes, let’s deport Sami al-Arian—to Israel

Few Americans know that Al-Arian was responsible for direct funding of terrorist attacks in Israel that not only killed Israelis, but American citizens as well.

By Lee Kaplan
leekaplan@homelandsecurityus.com

26 April 2006: Newswires were all aflutter with the news that the US head of Islamic Jihad, Sami Al-Arian, just accepted a plea deal from the US government to be deported. Some commentators were crowing that this proved Al-Arian’s guilt, because, in order to get the deal, Al-Arian had to admit to funding and working with a terrorist organization, Islamic Jihad.

The simple fact is that the FBI was wiretapping and following up on Al-Arian since 1991. If anyone wants to see how slow the FBI is in dealing with terrorist supporters and enablers within our shores during the War on Terror, the Al-Arian case is the best example. It took nearly fifteen years to bring him to justice and he literally almost “got away with it.” In point of fact, Al-Arian did actually do just that.

Few Americans know that Al-Arian was responsible for direct funding of terrorist attacks in Israel that not only killed Israelis, but American citizens as well. Even fewer know that Al-Arian really wo n so far in this battle with the US government, because once he is safely deported to Syria, Al-Arian can continue operations as normal. That is what happened with another Islamic Jihad colleague of his who formerly ran Al-Arian’s World and Islamic Studies Enterprise (WISE) in the US and also taught Middle East Studies at the Univeristy of South Florida, where Al-Arian was a tenured faculty member in Computer Science. That man, Ramadam Shalah, was allowed to leave the US and is now the current head of the same terrorist group, Islamic Jihad, leading attacks such as occurred in Tel Aviv last Monday, which killed nine people and wounded almost 60.

In short, by allowing Shalah to leave for Damascus, the US facilitated the leadership of a terrorist group that killed people.

Al-Arian now can be a hero to the Palestinian revolution of destroying Israel when he, too, makes his way to Syria thanks to his plea deal. Safely ensconced in D a mascus, like Shalah, he can continue to raise funds and lead more “operations” to murder men, women and children in Israel. In the process, Americans and other nationals can die also. One of last Monday’s victims of a suicide bomber sent by Islamic Jihad was a French tourist. Suicide bombings do not distinguish by nationality in creating victims.

So, how should the US government make the punishment fit the crime? Simple. Deport Al-Arian to Israel and let him stand trial there.

Think about it: Israel has no death penalty, so nobody can claim he is being sent as a marked man. And the Israelis will no doubt release him one day with thousands of other terrorists as a “good will gesture” to get some Israeli captive’s dead body back from the terrorists anyway. Meanwhile, maybe for once, a cold-blooded murderer will be off the streets and a couple of democratic states can, for once, show the fascists that the reward for terrorism is not a hero’s welcome back in t he Arab homeland to continue to make jihad. In the meantime, for once, the rule of law will actually prevail in the War on Terror.

Al-Arian could be prosecuted by the Israelis for the more than one hundred lives he helped snuff out for Islamic Jihad with his fund-raising and logistical aid to terrorists. Finally, this murderer would be off the streets and in a jail cell for life where he belongs. He’ll no doubt have the free counsel of some Israeli lawyer from Israel’s communist party to represent him, so we needn’t worry too much about him, but the free democracies of the world could finally end the spree of a killer, instead of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Of course, our State Department might object to offending “Arab sensibilities”. After all, our concern for those sensibilities has certainly paid off: the Arab street hates us anyway, because in a Middle East culture where only might makes right, America has no self-respect; and Ameri ca will even release a murderer to a community that will praise his activities as heroic attacks against the “Zionist enemy”.

Al-Arian once said, “Damn America to Hell.” There’s no reason why we have to do it for him. Ship the felon to Israel.

What Happened to the Syrian “Musicians” from Northwest Flight 327? Sorry Folks…

You can’t read the government’s version of what happened on Flight 327 because it has been CLASSIFIED. Why? And whatever happened to “nothing happened?”

By Annie Jacobsen

25 April 2006: On June 29, 2004 — nearly three years after 9/11 — I was on a flight that many undercover federal agents believe was a dry run for a future terrorist attack involving a hijacked commercial airplane. One federal agent went so far as to tell me that, based upon the intel he had, “it was the real deal called off.” Now, 22-months later, the government has completed its investigation into Northwest flight 327. Here’s what they say. Oh wait, a few more facts first:

Back in 2004, the flight became headline news after I wrote a 3,000 word, first-hand account of the terrifying events involving a 757 jet, 14 Syrian men, several flight attendants, two federal air marshals and 187 passengers. The article, called Terror in The Skies, Again? was published at WomensWallStreet.com and within a week, according to CNN, fifteen million people read it.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi video released on internet

25 April, 2006: (Reuters) - The leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, said mujahideen were fighting on despite a three-year “crusader” war, according to a rare video of him posted on the Internet on Tuesday.A statement from the al-Qaeda affiliated Mujahideen Council, accompanying the tape said it was the first “video of the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq”.“Your mujahideen sons were able to confront the most ferocious of crusader campaigns on a Muslim state. They have stood in the face of this onslaught for three years,” Zarqawi said on the video.

“When the crusader enemy entered Iraq, he intended to control the Islamic nation and supported the Zionist state,” said Zarqawi, who was clad in black and a green vest with an assault rifle by his side.

Zarqawi, who has earlier issued his messages via audio recordings, was also shown training with a group of masked men outdoors.

American Hiroshima Revisited

Sean Osborne, Associate Director, Senior Analyst, Military Affairs“Nuclear warfare is the solution for destroying America” -Abu Shihab al-Kandahari

23 April 2006: It was just nine short months ago when I created and posted on these pages a fact-based, fictional supposition on the theme of an “American Hiroshima”. In that article my supposition was based upon terrorist utilization of a small, privately-owned Cessna 152 aircraft and its tactical nuclear payload. The aircraft would depart from a small rural airport, buzz along at tree top height to ensure metropolitan air traffic control would miss the radar signature due to its merging with ground clutter in the returning radar signal. In the last minutes of the terrorist flight a pop-up maneuver would place the aircraft a couple thousand feet over Manhattan – virtually recreating the specifics of the US attack on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6th, 1945 insomuch as the size of the warhead required and the detonation altitude are concerned.

I believed my supposition was as plausible then as I do today.

Enter, once again, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to remind us of this specific threat to the American Homeland.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), part of the Department of Homeland Security, released on Friday, 20 April 2005, the following advisory. I view this advisory as a specific measure in a most welcomed pro-active attempt at preemption of the type of scenario I created as a work of fiction.

Advisory – Security Information for Aircraft Owners/Operators & Airport Managers

April 20, 2006

On April 13, 2006, a message posted in Arabic on a web forum explained how to identify private American jets and urged Muslims to destroy all such aircraft:

“Destroy private American aircraft…We call upon all Muslims to follow and identify private civilian American aircrafts in all airports of the world…It is the duty of Muslims to destroy all types of private American aircrafts that are of the types Gulf Stream and Lear Jet and all small jet aircraft usually used by distinguished (people) and businessmen.”

The message also advised readers how to identify American aircraft and provided the tail number of a private aircraft allegedly used by the CIA.

TSA reminds general aviation aircraft and airport owners and operators to review the security measures contained in the TSA Information Publication, Security Guidelines for General Aviation Airports (available at
http://www.tsa.gov/public/interapp/editorial/editorial_1113.xml), and the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association’s Airport Watch Program materials (available at www.aopa.org/airportwatch). In addition, general aviation aircraft and airport owners and operators are encouraged to consider the following:

•Secure unattended aircraft to prevent unauthorized use.
•Verify the identification of crew and passengers prior to departure.
•Verify that baggage and cargo are known to the persons on board.
•Where identification systems are in place, encourage employees to wear proper identification and challenge persons not wearing proper identification.
•Direct increased vigilance to unknown pilots and/or clients for aircraft rental or charters – as well as unknown service/delivery personnel.
•Be alert/aware of and report persons masquerading as pilots, security personnel, emergency medical technicians, or other personnel using uniforms and/or vehicles as methods to gain access to aviation facilities or aircraft.
•Be alert/aware of and report aircraft with unusual or unauthorized modifications.
•Be alert/aware of and report persons loitering in the vicinity of aircraft or air operations areas – as well as persons loading unusual or unauthorized payload onto aircraft.
•Be alert/aware of and report persons who appear to be under stress or the control of other persons.
•Be alert/aware of and report persons whose identification appears altered or inconsistent.

The theft of any General Aviation aircraft should be immediately reported to the appropriate authorities and the TSA General Aviation Hotline at 866-GASECUR (866-427-3287). In addition, persons should report any suspicious activity immediately to local law enforcement and the TSA General Aviation Hotline.

My original supposition of 17 July 2005 which was titled with the quote from Abu Shihab al-Kandahari follows.

“Nuclear Warfare is the Solution for Destroying America”

Military Expert & Analyst Advances Theory: How about an American Hiroshima which is a repeat, an eye for an eye of the events of exactly sixty years ago this August 6th and 9th? Is it plausible? I believe so.

Sean Osborne, Military Affairs & Senior Analyst

17 July 2005: The early morning of August 6, 2005 began as any summer-time Saturday does in New York City with school vacations winding down and kids wanting to get the most of the remaining days of summer. An avid Mets fan, 10 year old Trevor Blaylock of Flushing, New York was already pestering his dad about when they were going to begin the short walk to Shea Stadium. The Chicago Cubs were in town and Trevor was very eager to be one of the first 12,000 kids through the gates so he’d get the official New York Mets back-to-school binder.

Meanwhile, in the up-the-Hudson city of Poughkeepsie, nefarious activity was going on at the Dutchess County Airport were an undetected Al Qaeda terrorist cell was making final preparations with their Cessna 152 and its tactical nuclear payload. The chosen plan of attack of the cell was to approach New York City at low altitude, barely tree top level so as you use the natural ground cover to mask the aircraft in the ambiguous radar returns. This course was chosen to further the operational security of this long-planned mass casualty attack against the infidels as General Aviation rules did not preclude their direct approach to the selected target.

It was at 2 PM Eastern Daylight Time, bottom of the first inning, the Mets had retired the Cubbies three up three down, Jose Reyes was at the plate awaiting the first pitch from the towering Carlos Zambrano when there was a blinding flash of blue-white light which illuminated Shea Stadium. Time itself seemed to come to a halt in that very microsecond and just as quickly all hell broke out in New York City. We came to learn later that the terrorists had followed the flight plan exactly, tree top to tree top and down the Hudson River. Upon seeing the George Washington Bridge the pilot suddenly pulled the Cessna 152 into a steep climb to an altitude of 2000 feet. Throttled up to full speed at 98 knots the terrorist made a mad dash for midtown Manhattan and at a position directly over the Empire State Building, with a shout of “allah akhbar” the terrorists detonated their ex-Soviet tactical nuclear weapon. The “American Hiroshima” had occurred exactly as the terrorists had been saying it was going to happen for the past three years.

The image of a broad daylight mushroom cloud over a World Trade Center-less New York skyline was now a reality. That image flashed around the world within seconds, New York was destroyed and four million Americans were dead - including 2 million children just like Trevor Blaylock. Three days later a second bomb was detonated 2000 feet over the Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant a mere 45 miles south of Washington DC. The Jihadists had demonstrated the military concept of a “force multiplier” with the selection of this target.

Is this Tom Clancyesque work of fiction that far removed from a potential reality? Myself and a few others think not. The actual targets may be deviant but the concept is exactly what the terrorists of Al Qaeda have been saying for three years.

The Al Qaeda nuclear fatwa issued in December 2002 by Abu Shihab al-Kandahari is quite explicit and revealing. He begins by saying in Islamic Fatwa religious edict, which this article takes as its own title,

“Thus, you are not mistaken in reading this text. This is the only way to kill the greatest possible number of Americans. The Americans have never experienced a threat like this one. During World War II, America used this [nuclear] weapon twice in three days…”

“Al-Qaeda has in its possession bombs which are called “dirty bombs,” and bombs with deadly viruses, which will spread fatal diseases throughout American cities…”

“The coming days will prove that Kaedat el-Jihad [the Al-Qaeda organization] is capable of turning America into a sea of deadly radiation. Yes, we will destroy America and its allies…”

It has long been maintained in private consensus within the intelligence community that Al Qaeda obtained tactical nuclear weapons from the former-Soviet Union sources in central Asia. Al Qaeda number two, Ayman al-Zawahiri is on record saying:

“We sent our people to Moscow, to Tashkent, to other Central Asian states, and they negotiated, and we purchased some suitcase [tactical nuclear] bombs.” 9 months after September 11, 2001 and six months prior to the “nuclear fatwa” issued by al-Kandahari, in June of 2002, the former Kuwaiti-born Al Qaeda spokesman, Suleiman Abu Gheith, issued the baseline of Al Qaeda’s nuclear plan for America, this is the public genesis of the concept of an “American Hiroshima.” It is a detailed blueprint of their intentions and must be heeded in the literal sense. Here are the key excerpts from Abu Gheith’s three-part “In the Shadow of the Lances:”

“The [premises] on which we base ourselves as an organization, and on which we base our operations and our method of action, are practical and realistic… They are also scientific and [in accordance with] Islamic religious law, and they give us confidence and certainty… In writing them and in [publicly] revealing them, I do not intend to be apologetic for what was done; I lay [these arguments] before you so as to emphasize that we are continuing with our blows against the Americans and the Jews, and with attacking them, both people and installations [so as to stress] that what awaits the Americans will not, Allah willing, be less than what has already happened to them. America must prepare itself; it must go on maximum alert; …because, Allah willing, the blow will come from where they least expect it…”

“The religious arguments on which we base ourselves in our Jihad against the Americans - the explanations that inspire us with confidence in the triumph of our religion, our belief, and our faith - are many, and this is not the place to enumerate them, as they are included in the books of the sages.”

“If by religious law it is permitted to punish a Muslim [for the crime he committed] - it is all the more permitted to punish a Harbi infidel [i.e. he who belongs to Dar Al-Harb 'the domain of disbelief” or “any nation on earth not under Islamic rule”] in the same way he treated the Muslim.”

“We have not reached parity with them. We have the right to kill 4 million Americans - 2 million of them children - and to exile twice as many and wound and cripple hundreds of thousands. Furthermore, it is our right to fight them with chemical and biological weapons, so as to afflict them with the fatal maladies that have afflicted the Muslims because of the [Americans'] chemical and biological weapons.”

Based upon these words above and in combination of everything I have heard or seen concerning the terrorist activity of Qaedat-al-Jihad the backbone of my Clancyesque “American Hiroshima” theory was born. There are several directly quoted sentences above I wish to reiterate at this point:

“During World War II, America used this [nuclear] weapon twice in three days…”

“Therefore, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth…”

“Al-Qaeda… has in its possession bombs which are called ‘dirty bombs,’ and bombs with deadly viruses, which will spread fatal diseases throughout American cities…”

“we will destroy America and its allies”

So how about an American Hiroshima which is a repeat, an eye for an eye of the events of exactly sixty years ago this August 6th and 9th? Is it plausible? I believe so. I believe it is consistent with the Department of Homeland Security Informational Bulletin released on June 28, 2005 warning to law enforcement and all concerned parties, first responders, et al., for the month of July 2005. I would extend that warning to cover the anniversaries of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks of August 6/9, 1945. I also think there is no small coincidence with all the recent chatter of talk concerning this topic in the recent past, or the exceptional reaction in Washington DC to an errant, lone Cessna 152 which was three minutes from the White House when intercepted. Nuclear weapons are like hand grenades: “close enough” gets you that celebratory cigar.
