The Self Absorbed Imperialists of Islam

“God forbid, there’s some other act of terrorism in the United States. I hate to think what might happen.”

By Glen Reinsford, Family Security Matters

30 April 2007: Although most Americans dread thinking about another terror attack on U.S. soil because thoughts of death, suffering and missing family members are far from pleasant, the person who spoke those words had an entirely different concern in mind.

Ibrahim Hooper is the spokesperson for the notorious CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations). His supposed anxiety (as expressed in an interview for a recently-aired PBS program, “The Muslim Americans”) is not over the dead and dismembered victims of Islamic violence, but rather for the Muslims in America that he imagines will be harmed in a wave of reprisals the next time the radicals of Islam strike ordinary citizens on U.S. soil.

Chlorine bombs a “real possibility” in the U.S.

28 April 2007: We’ve seen the use of chlorine bombs in Iraq against out troops and coalition forces, and now we are seeing instructions posted to Arabic language boards on how to use such bombs against targets inside the United States. As a result, the Department of Homeland Security has issued warnings to U.S. chemical plants and bomb squads to be on the lookout for chlorine bombs here in the U.S.

Over the last few months, at least a half-dozen chlorine truck bombs were used by terrorists to kill upwards of 100 people and injuring and sickening hundreds of others. The toxic fumes released by the improvised chlorine bombs have the capability to be quite lethal. One of the more significant attacks in Iraq involving the use of a chlorine laden truck bomb took place in Ramadi earlier this month, killing 27 people and injuring more than 3 dozen others with the fumes released from the bomb.

Combine this “new” tactic being used by Islamic terrorists in Iraq with the recent increase in thefts of chlorine tanks in the U.S. According to law enforcement sources, a number of recent thefts of 150 pound chlorine tanks, particularly from water treatment plants in California, are causing concern among officials. A number of advisories have been issued to law enforcement agencies across the U.S. to monitor such thefts, and to increase security of industries storing and using chlorine.

Analysis: Islamic unification in Iraq

27 April 2007: A larger and far more organized unified front is shaping up in Iraq, promising a bloodier offensive against our troops and coalition forces in the not-so distant future. Veteran independent counter-terrorism analyst Randy Taylor, has been monitoring various communications involving Sunni and Shiâ’ groups in Iraq in addition to the variety of potential threats to North America. On April 21, a number of Arabic language Internet websites published a “declaration” signed four days earlier by 15 Iraqi Resistance organizations and announcing an alliance of Sunni and Shiâ’ Jihadi Resistance organizations in southern Iraq. The aim of the alliance is to carry out operations against U.S. and coalition forces in a unified front. While this story appeared in various media venues in the Middle East, the American media and nearly all of their paid consultants missed this significant story entirely.

According to Mr. Taylor, Sunni and Shi’ite groups have formed a “unified” front to fight US and Coalition forces, something he described as “predictable and inevitable,” and placing our troops into a position of having to fight a stronger and more cohesive enemy. The end result will be a “bigger and far more organized blood bath than has already been experienced,” stated Mr. Taylor.

“The insurgent and terrorist groups have grown significantly stronger and greater in manpower since they started fighting each other. I suspect Iranian involvement, as this level of unification accelerated following the return of Iraqi Shi’te leader Muqtada al-Sadr from Iran. He carried a message, most likely from his Iranian handlers, that the Shi’ites would be focusing on the U.S. and Coalition forces, rather than devoting so much time fighting the Sunni’s. It is also important to point out that the location and activities of al Sadr have been unaccounted for since his return, further reinforcement the likelihood that he has been engaged in unification talks with the Sunni groups in Iraq,” according to the latest analysis of Mr. Taylor.

The much reported issue of sectarian violence in Iraq - referring to the fighting between the Shia’ and Sunnis - has prompted Iran, one of the most formidable of Islamic enemies of the West, to recognize this as a tactic of the U.S. to provoke internal strife within the Islamic front. Using their influence to unite the factions, Iran accomplishes two objectives: causing greater mass casualty events in Iraq, and proving their role as masters of distraction as they continue to sway the world’s attention away from their nuclear program. The unification of groups and coordination of efforts was outlined in The following declaration:

Declaration of the Popular Front for the Iraqi Resistance

The victories in the field that are piling up every day in our country will have far reaching results on all levels: in the Arab world, the region, and the world, and on America specifically. Therefore we see it trying to cook up and market all kinds of plans aimed at enveloping the Resistance, robbing it of its accomplishments, and halting its triumphant march. This is the explanation for the feverish efforts by American diplomats and officials of the occupation and its tails. Victory in Iraq, thanks be to God the Almighty, has become an accepted fact that the enemy is soon to recognize. The defeat of the Zionist-American project has become a matter of time and then the region and the world will hear the thunder of as it falls. Thus, militant patriotic unity is a safety valve and balm for the people against the threat of sectarianism.

With that in mind, we groups of jihadi organizations operating in Iraq that by the grace of God have made the occupiers taste all sorts of humiliation and suffering and have fought with virility, audacity, and courage, declare the unification of our ranks in a comprehensive open front that we have called, after relying on God, by the name of the Popular Front for the Iraqi Resistance. We have drawn up our goals, made clear our means, unified our slogans, and reunified our forces so as to stand with the rest of our brothers in the fighting jihadi groups, the organizations, and associations that reject the occupation, its plans and agendas, taking the stand of heroes who fight in defense, hand in hand until victory is attained, by the will and grace of God.

Aware of the extent of responsibility resting on our shoulders we will keep the door open before all those who see the correctness of our path, the truth of our goals, and the soundness of our means to join us in the battle for liberation and for building an independent state. In particular we address our appeal to our people in wounded southern Iraq where our fighting brigades have appeared to bring back the glories of their grandfathers in the epic Revolution of 1920 against the British occupation.

Upon God the Almighty we rely, for He is the best of patrons and the best of supporters.

Oklahoma University President David Boren defends would-be bomber’s memorial

— Douglas J. Hagmann, Investigator, Director, Northeast Intelligence Network

27 April 2007: Oklahoma University President David Lyle Boren was a former state legislator, Governor of Oklahoma, and a three-term United States Senator. While in the Senate, he was the longest-serving chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence. When the first plane hijacked by Islamic terrorists hit the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, 2001, Boren was having breakfast at the Hay-Adams Hotel restaurant with former CIA Director George Tenet - the man he appointed to the position of staff director of the Select Committee’s oversight panel.

It was Boren who essentially gave Tenet his start in the intelligence world that led to his position as CIA Director. And it was Tenet who was “on watch” when 3000 of our citizens were slaughtered as a result of one of America’s worst intelligence failures in our country’s history. It was Boren who was “on watch” when one of his students carried a backpack full of explosives to a packed football stadium, only to have the backpack detonate at a time and location not initially intended.

On October 1, 2005, Oklahoma University student Joel Henry HINRICHS III, wearing a backpack containing the highly unstable explosive TATP, met his death outside of the football stadium at Oklahoma University during a football game where 84,000 fans were in attendance. Triacetone Triperoxide, or TATP, is known as the “Mother of Satan” because of it’s instability and lethality and has been frequently used by Islamic terrorists - including those involved in the July 7, 2005 train bombings in London and by the would-be “shoe bomber” Richard Reid. According to some witnesses, HINRICHS (not a football fan, according to his father) attempted to gain entry into the Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, but apparently fled when he realized that he would be unable to clear security without having his backpack inspected prior to entry.

Witnesses also identified HINRICHS as attempting to purchase about 1,000 pounds - 22 bags of ammonium nitrate, a component used to make fertilizer type bombs. Ammonium nitrate is the same type of fertilizer used in the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, OK that claimed 168 men, women and children, along with three unborn children.

Additionally, police found a one-way airline ticket to Algeria in the apartment HINRICHS shared with his Pakistani roommate Fazal M. CHEEMA. They also found bomb-making manuals, bomb making equipment including mixing bowls, a slow cooker, a thermometer, plastic containers, a hobby fuse, a circuit board, six tape rolls, and chemicals used to make TATP, as well as a significant amount of material that could be used as shrapnel to make a bomb of that type more lethal to bystanders.

Despite these accounts that indicate HINRICHS had more planned than suicide, Oklahoma University President David Lyle Boren publicly assured his students and his faculty and staff that HINRICHS had no intention of detonating his payload of explosives in the packed football stadium. Instead, he asserted that HINRICHS chose to kill himself in this odd manner, at the location where he did, because of the “beauty” of the area.

Now, Mr. Boren continues his campaign of willful perversion of the facts, deliberate fabrications, and a contemptible disregard for the safety of his campus by continuing his disingenuous charade and deceitful mischaracterization of the events of October 1, 2005 by emphasizing tolerance and sensitivity over truth and security. As an added insult to the potential victims of Joel Henry HINRICHS III, David Boren has given his imprimatur to a memorial stone in remembrance of HINRICHS. The stone, inscribed “Joel H HINRICHS III” was placed earlier this month near the end of the patio west of the student union, among other similar stones commemorating such people as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, television personality Katie Couric and Oklahoma native James Garner. As reported today in The Norman Transcript, Boren is quoted:

“We need to encourage understanding and compassion in our society instead of more anger and intolerance based upon misinformation,” Boren said. “What kind of people would we be if we refused to allow a grieving family the right to remember their deceased son or brother? Of course, if there had been any evidence that he was attempting to harm others our decision would have been different, but there was none.”

Apparently, the “laundry list” of items removed from HINRICHS’ Parkview Apartment and the witness accounts of his activities before the blast - as well as witnesses who observed HINRICHS at the Islamic Society of Norman, Oklahoma in the weeks before the explosion, is not enough to convince Boren of something larger than a suicide was to take place at his campus. Instead, Boren appears to be all too willing to maintain that there was no malice on the mind of HINRICHS beyond his own demise. This, however, is not the first time Boren has tried to bury the truth in his capacity as university president.

On September 16, 2001, two OU students were involved in an altercation with a Pakistani Muslim OU student who was working at a local convenience store. According to one report, Pakistani student Mohammad Yaseen HAIDER was the aggressor in an altercation involving two American students, yet the two American students were forced from the University (although were eventually allowed to return) while HAIDER, who attended the Norman, OK Mosque, was rewarded by Boren with a work-study job at the Parkview Apartments.

HAIDER’S employment was short-lived. On November 8th, Immigration and Naturalization Service agents arrested HAIDER and his two roommates, Nabeel KHALID and Mohammad Imran SHAIKH, for violating their student visas by being employed off campus.

KHALID & SHAIKH were released after a month in custody. KHALID moved back to Pakistan while SHAIKH remained in Norman. HAIDER, who was set to be deported on December 13, 2001, was charged in mid-November for threatening to mail anthrax to a woman he was harassing by e-mail.

It is difficult to comprehend how Mr. Boren, in his capacity as university president, can exhibit such a cavalier disregard for the safety and security of his students by consciously burying the facts in the case of Joel Henry HINRICHS III under the umbrella of showing “understanding and compassion.” It is especially difficult to understand how Boren could permit a memorial on university grounds to a former student who, were it not for a series of unexpected or unintended circumstances, could have killed more than those who were murdered at Virginia Tech earlier this month.

As director of the Northeast Intelligence Network, I am urging everyone, especially those with vested interests in the safety and security of the student body and campus, to call for the immediate resignation of David Lyle Boren. If you wish to express your sentiments to the university, the following contact information is provided:

Series of Reports on OU Bombing

2006: OU Bombing was “failed homicide attack”

RELATED: A partial list of intersecting paths in Norman, OK

Oklahoma University, the Islamic Society of Norman, Oklahoma, and the Parkview Apartments all have interesting and disconcerting intersecting paths before, during and after the September 11, 2001 attacks on America:

September 11 hijacker Ziad Jarrah’s ticket (United Airlines Flight 93) was purchased from a computer terminal at Oklahoma University.

September 11 hijackers Al Shehhi, Al Hazmi, Mohamed Atta as well as convicted Islamic terrorist Zacharias Moussaoui all stayed in the Parkview Apartments, and each had ties to the Islamic Society of Norman, Oklahoma.

On or about 26 February 2001, Zacharias MOUSSAOUI opened a bank account in Norman, Oklahoma where he deposited approximately $32,000 in cash, and attended the Airman Flight School in Norman, Oklahoma between 26 February 2001 and 29 May 2001. (In early July 2000, Mohammed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi visited the Airman Flight School in Norman, Oklahoma). MOUSSAOUI also had ties to the Islamic Society of Norman, Oklahoma.

On a bus trip to the University of Oklahoma, Zacharias MOUSSAOUI was on the same bus as Nicholas BERG, the American man who was beheaded in Iraq in 2004 by Islamic terrorists. At some point on that trip, MOUSSAOUI asked BERG if he could use BERG’S laptop computer. Government sources said BERG gave the MOUSSAOUI his computer password.

On 26 September 2005, University of Oklahoma student Charles Alfred DREYLING, JR, OF Norman, Oklahoma was charged with bringing an explosive device to an airport and ultimately pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge in federal court in Oklahoma City. DREYLING, 24, was arrested in August, 2005 at the Will Rogers World Airport after security personnel noticed a suspicious object in his carryon bag as he was leaving for a family vacation with his parents. He later told FBI agents the device — a modified carbon dioxide cartridge filled with gunpowder — was “basically a pipe bomb,” according to court papers that he had forgotten was in his bag. Interestingly, former Oklahoma City, OK Mayor Kirk Humphreys– who was also DREYLING’S landlord– spoke on behalf of DREYLING at his bail hearing.

Memorial to “Backpack Bomber” Joel Henry Hinrichs III at OU

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

26 April 2007: What do Katie Couric, actor Oklahoma native James Garner, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and Joel Henry Hinrichs III have in common? They all have memorial stones placed prominently at Oklahoma University. While most people will instantly recognize the three former names of the list, some might not recognize the latter name: Joel Henry HINRICHS III.

It was on October 1, 2005, when a backpack worn by HINRICHS containing the highly unstable explosive TATP (triacetone triperoxide), also known as the “mother of Satan” and a recognized favorite explosive mixture used by Muslim terrorists, detonated outside of a packed football stadium. HINRICHS was killed in the explosion that was heard four miles away and shattered windows of at least one campus building. Despite the official explanation offered by Oklahoma University President David Boren and FBI officials, it is reasonably suspected that HINRICHS’ intent was to detonate the backpack inside of the football stadium in an act of Personal Islamic Jihad. Evidence developed by the Northeast Intelligence Network - who were the first to break the news about the use of TATP, suggests that HINRICHS had ties to the Islamic community in Norman and attempted entry into the stadium on at least three occasions during the game, although could not successfully circumvent security.

According to published news reports, the memorial stone inscribed “Joel H Hinrichs III” is located near the end of the patio west of the student union. It was installed at a cost of about $150.00 and paid for by the student affairs division of the student union of Oklahoma University.

EXCLUSIVE REPORT: Where is Hussain al-Hussaini?

By Douglas J. Hagmann, Director

Where is Hussein al-Hussaini?25 April 2007: Yesterday, Washington-based writer & broadcast journalist Wes Vernon wrote an extensive report about the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The article appears can be read in its entirety at Accuracy in Media and is a MUST READ for everyone interested in the evolution of a cover-up - a cover-up that leads directly to a state-sponsored mass casualty attack on US soil.

As director of the Northeast Intelligence Network and having spent the last 21 years as an investigator, I was graciously provided the opportunity to review and ultimately, substantiate the extensive information detailed in The Third Terrorist by Jayna Davis, the foremost authority on the bombing and Middle Eastern connection. The Third Terrorist, as written by award-winning journalist and best selling author Jayna Davis, is a comprehensive investigation into the identity of John Doe #2, the handling of the bombing investigation by the U.S. Justice Department, and proof-positive of a definitive connection to Middle Eastern Terrorists.

As the dots have been (and continue to be) connected, there is substantial evidence that links elements of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and the 9/11 attacks on America to the 1995 bombing in Oklahoma City - evidence that has gone largely ignored by the media, and elements that have been pushed aside by some high-ranking intelligence community officials and representatives in Washington.

In 2005, I personally verified the location and activities of Hussain al-Hussaini, an ex-member of Saddam Hussein’s Republican Guard and a significant subject in Ms. Davis’ book. As detailed in The Third Terrorist and referenced in the report by Mr. Vernon, al-Hussaini had taken a job at Boston Logan airport four years before the events of 9/11; Boston Logan was the point of origin of two of the hijacked flights that would later slam into the World Trade Center on 9/11.

Today, Hussain al-Hussaini, appears to be among the missing. Shortly after a report about his activities and persons of specific interest residing in the Boston area in 2005 was submitted by the Northeast Intelligence Network, al-Hussaini seems to have dropped from sight - suddenly and apparently, with intent.

Make no mistake about it, there will be terrorist attacks by Islamic terrorists and state-sponsored agents inside the US - it’s simply a matter of time. When they happen, there will be plenty of people with the blood of innocent people on their hands.

Muslims Call Ham Hate Crime

By Sher Zieve

24 April 2007: As they are “highly offensive” to Muslims, it appears that our politically correct leftist-run middle school system will soon no longer allow any pork products on school property. At Lewiston, ME Middle School, placing pork in the mere presence of Muslims is currently being called a hate crime. Note: Jews also believe pork is unclean but, there has never been any effort by the public school system to remove pork, in order to honor their religious beliefs. That is reserved solely for Muslims. For that matter, celebrations of Christian holidays are being summarily removed from the public school system, while Muslim holidays are commemorated and Muslim foot washing basins and prayer rooms are being built. All manner of Islamic demands, no matter what the complaint, are being met and Islam is quickly and clearly being established as the “superior” religion in the USA now in the public school systems and, no doubt, soon in the entire country.

Al Qaeda in Iraq Planning Attacks in the UK

By Randy Taylor Independent Analyst

23 April 2007: Information was released over the last few days that British Intelligence, Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) - based at MI5’s London headquarters has come across information that al Qaeda leaders in Iraq are planning something to be on “a par with Hiroshima and Nagasaki” in an attempt to “shake the Roman throne. This information was released through several major media publications in the UK on April 23rd.

Interestingly enough analysts at the Northeast Intelligence Network came into possession of a newly released complete “Nuclear Danger// Shelters and the reasons for escape” which is a Nuclear Survival Guide primarily designed for both Arabic and English speaking Muslims the early the same day 16 hours prior to the news releases. The writer [Jihad Media Battalion] of the documents had taken information from an existing English Nuclear Survival website and carefully transcribed the text throughout the document from English to Arabic, preserving the original diagrams within the document and also placed a file within the folder that directed English speaking Muslims to the original web site.

This isn’t the first time that al Qaeda or a media production branch of the same organization has produced these type materials although it has been years since the subject has shown up in their communications. Many will also remember the notorious post in the Global Islamic Media Front’s Yahoo group page several years ago stating that Muslims should vacate major US cities for reasons unknown. This latest series of documents is quite different somehow simply due to the detail and the timing of the documents release along with the statement from Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre (JTAC) of MI5.

Here is one image from within one of the documents:

Together, the release of the manual and the news releases could bear some significance. The other interesting aspect was that this series of documents weren’t retrieved through normal channels and seem intended for a very small select audience. This is written “so Muslims can survive this and emerge as the survivors, victorious” as this documents stated.

Just keeping you informed of what is transpiring. There is no specific imminent threat known at this time. I’m just passing it along.

Be safe, stay vigilant.

VA Tech Murders: A Glimpse into the Future

By Randy Taylor, Independent Analyst

22 April 2007: The tragedy of the VA Tech murders isn’t necessarily the body count but instead the fact that one lone person with murder on their mind can commit such a horrendous act in our civilized society. It only accentuates our vulnerability as a people, as a nation.

This is indeed a newsworthy event but let us not forget that this is becoming commonplace all across the planet. Islamic terrorists are killing this many people every day in various places around the world. Markets being targeted in Iraq are producing death counts that far exceed this shooting in Virginia but we somehow distance ourselves from that cold, harsh reality because it isn’t happening here everyday. Well, at least not yet. But we will witness as time goes on, there will be far greater atrocities happening here in the United States. That is reality. We will bury many of our own.

Nuclear power plant employee arrested: gave access codes, software to Iran

AMERICA’S FIFTH COLUMN

21 April 2007:  Mohammad ALAVI, 49 a U.S. citizen with reported ties to the Phoenix, Arizona Muslim community as well ties with Iran, worked as an engineer for the last 16 years at the largest nuclear power plant in the U.S. at the Palo-Verde nuclear power plant. ALAVI abruptly quit his job at the reactor last August. On April 9, ALAVI stepped off a plane at the Los Angeles International Airport where he was returning from a trip to Iran, and was arrested by the FBI. According to federal officials, ALAVI stole computer access codes and software from the nuclear plant during his employment, and shared the information with Tehran.

According to the information contained in the federal charges, the software taken by ALAVI allows users to access to details on the Palo Verde nuclear power plant control rooms, reactors and plant layout. The software was used in October, two months after ALAVI’s departure from the plant, to download training materials in Tehran, using an active Palo Verde user identification.

At this time, ALAVI has only been charged with a single count of violating a trade embargo that prohibits Americans from exporting goods and services to Iran. If convicted of that charge, he could face up to 21 months in prison. Through his attorney Milagros Cisneros of the Federal Defender’s Office in Phoenix, ALAVI, meanwhile, denies any wrongdoing. The FBI also stated that there is no indication that ALAVI has any terrorist connections and that there is no evidence to suggest the software access was linked to the Iranian government.

The triple reactor plant, located about 50 miles west of downtown Phoenix, supplies electricity to some 4 million customers in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and California and has been plagued by outages and equipment problems for the past several years.
