POLICE SAY SMUGGLED CIGARETTE CRIME RING PUT OUT OF BUSINESS IN TAMPA SCAM, MAYBE NOT SO MUCH, OLD HABITS HARD TO KICK.


TAMPA SMUGGLED CIGARETTE SCHEME UP IN SMOKE, ARRESTED ARE KHALDOUN "TONY" KHAWAJA AND 5 OTHERS, A SEARCH WARRANT WAS SERVED AT THE MAIN STREET GROCERY.. TAMPA, FL--A scheme to facilitate the theft and resale of smuggled cigarettes has been uncovered as the result of an ongoing criminal investigation run by the Tampa Bay Regional Domestic Security Task Force (RDSTF).


After the terrorist events of September 11, 2001, and the national focus on homeland security, specific responsibility for the identification of Florida's domestic security issues and the coordination of State responses was tasked to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. While foreign and domestic terrorism remains a critical concern of the federal government, state and local governments clearly have an essential role safeguarding citizens, preventing domestic terrorism, and responding to any domestic security event or incident should one occur.

RDSTF investigators also identified a suspect who solicited undercover agents for help in procuring sex from children.

According to Lance Newman, Florida Department of Law Enforcement special agent in charge and, Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee, RDSTF co-chairs, intelligence collected by law enforcement agencies throughout the United States indicated that the proceeds from the sale of stolen property, particularly SMUGGLED CIGARETTES and BABY FORMULA in convenience stores, have allegedly been forwarded to foreign groups associated with funding terrorist organizations (
like the Palestinian Islamic Jihad which has numerous links in Tampa).

Store owners "fencing" stolen/smuggled cigarettes and baby formula reap substantial profits because the retail value of the stolen goods is substantially higher than prices paid to the thieves. Based on these circumstances, the Tampa Bay RDSTF initiated an investigation.

In February 2004, the Tampa Bay RDSTF received information from the Jacksonville RDSTF that a Tampa resident,
Adil Abdel Hader, 58, was allegedly involved in an organized criminal enterprise that purchased stolen cigarettes derived from "smash and grab" burglaries throughout Central Florida. Through a series of undercover operations, agents identified suspects, including Hader, who purchased stolen cigarettes at prices well below wholesale value and resold them through convenience stores whom Hader either controlled or with whom he was associated. Smuggled Cigarettes totaling approximately $45,000 in value were purchased by suspects who were told they had been stolen.
IN EARLY 2008 TWO MEMBERS OF THIS "CREW' WERE ARRESTED AGAIN ON SIMILAR CHARGES WITH STOLEN/SMUGGLED CIGARETTES, THEY HAD BEEN ON FLORIDA STATE FELONY PROBATION, THEY WERE CHARGED AGAIN AND CONVICTED AGAIN, NOW THEY ARE ON "DOUBLE SECRET PROBATION" WITH NO JAIL TIME, ONLY IN FLORIDA.

Contacts with Hader also led to the revelation that Hader was allegedly interested in procuring young children for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity with them. On at least four occasions, sometimes in graphic detail, Hader told undercover officers that he was interested in sex with young girls and boys and that he would be willing to pay for the arranged meetings.

SAC Newman stated that "while we are not accusing anyone of terrorist activity, we want to send a clear message that the RDSTF is proactively looking at people and businesses that engage in activities that have historically supported groups sympathetic to terrorist organizations."

A list of suspects arrested and charges follows (these men pled out and were put on Florida State felony probation):

Abil Abdel Hader 08/19/47 Solicitation to Commit Sexual Battery Dealing in Stolen Property.
Khaldoun Khalil "Tony" Khawaja 03/28/64 Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.Salim Yousef Suleiman 01/14/62 Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.Said Ibrahim 11/24/55 Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.Tariq Hammad 01/01/87 Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.Victor Javier Reyes 11/02/77 Dealing in Stolen Property Racketeering.

Search warrants were executed at the
Main Street Grocery, 2117 W. Main Street, Tampa; Bearss Meat and Groceries, 1450 N. Skipper Rd. #48, Tampa; Price is Right Market, 4008 N. 34th Street, Tampa; Ybor Restaurant, 3402 N. 15th Street, Tampa and Sav-Mor Market, 1900 N. Rome Ave., Tampa.

TRADE BASED MONEY LAUNDERING FROM PORT OF TAMPA FLORIDA USA TO GAZA.

TRADE BASED MONEY LAUNDERING FROM PORT OF TAMPA FL USA TO GAZA.
The company in the report below has been importing food stuffs purchased by PIJ operatives in North America (Tampa Fl) and elsewhere for resale in Gaza and Israel with the proceeds going to the PIJ. Akar Trading co ltd " We are direct mandates for sugar refinery in Brazil, great prices and assurances that the sugar will be delivered". Akarco Trading Co ltd has offices in Gaza and in Israel

"It is known that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad is engaged in money laundering for purposes of transferring funds used to finance terrorism. The prevailing method is based on transferring the organization's funds from abroad to the Palestinian Authority administered territories (hereinafter: “PA”) through goods. The goods are purchased, through the financing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, from international commercial companies (Tampa Fl), and delivered to commercial companies in the PA.

The Israeli security forces, in collaboration with the customs authorities, recently confiscated containers with tens of thousands of dollars' worth of goods in the Ashdod Port. The purchase of the goods has allegedly been funded by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and meant to finance the organization's activities. The confiscated goods had been sent to Abu Akar, a Gaza-based company specializing in food import is headed by Fayez Abu akar, they receive goods from Tampa Fl.

Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz signed a military injunction ordering the closure of a Gaza Strip company involved in money laundering on behalf of Palestinian terror. The Israel Defense Forces and the police have been instructed to close down the company’s offices in Israel and in the Palestinian territories and to confiscate its assets. The illegal activities of Abu Aker (aka Abu Akar) Food Imports and Marketing Ltd were busted following a joint investigation by the Shin Bet and the Drugs Authority. Investigators gathered evidence that brothers Faez (aka Fayez) and Mohammad Abou Aker (aka Akar) funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad through the company,the seized goods consisted of bottles of palm oil (similar to Olive Oil).


The leaderships of Hamas and Islamic Jihad paid for goods purchased by the Abu Aker brothers abroad (Tampa Fl). Once the goods were shipped to the Gaza Strip the brothers funneled large amounts of their revenues to terrorists in the Gaza Strip. Terror elements abroad have increasingly relied on money laundering and other underworld activities to funnel funds to Palestinian terror organizations in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.


Fayez Ouda Abu Akar, the Abu Akar company owner, is a Khan Younis businessman known for his links to terrorist organizations, Security forces arrested him shortly after the raid at the port. The Israeli forces also fired a shell at his store of food-stuffs located below a 5-storey apartment building (owned by Fayez 'Ouda Abu 'Akar). The store was severely damaged and four Palestinian civilians were also wounded by the Israeli shelling

According to security officials, in an effort to whitewash money used to finance its activities, Islamic Jihad operatives abroad (Tampa Fl) purchase goods that are sent to companies in Palestinian Authority controlled areas. There, the money from the sales of the goods is transferred to Islamic Jihad operatives to fund terrorist activities in the West Bank and Gaza.


Israeli Police investigators swept the offices of two Israeli companies with business ties to a Palestinian importer of food products, accused by Israel of funneling monies to the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups. According to police sources, Shintraco Ltd. and Maayan Ltd. ignored recommendations by the Ministry of Defense not to do business with food staples importer Abu Aker (aka Abu Akar) due to its connections with terror groups.


Shintraco Ltd., a Ramat Gan-based importer of food products, carried out business transactions with Abu Aker Co.despite being informed that the Palestinian company had been banned from operating in Israel in 2005 for laundering money on behalf of terror groups. Israeli investigators found that overseas representative for the terror groups purchased merchandise abroad on behalf of Abu Aker whose employees then paid the money back to terror operatives in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.


Mayan Ltd., a consultant on customs and VAT payments, coordinated Shintraco's business dealings with Abu Aker (aka Abu Akar Co). A number of Mayan and Shintraco employees have been remanded for interrogation. Police said employees of both companies attempted to blur all evidence pointing to their cooperation with Abu Aker Co. Sources at Maayan said the police investigation was centered on the activities of Shintraco, one of its customers, denying their company had knowingly assisted terror groups.

The Israeli Customs Authority confiscated 31 containers of goods worth hundreds of thousands of US dollars, which were on their way to Gaza Strip, under the pretext that the revenues of these goods were financing Hamas and the Islamic Jihad movements. Israeli officials further claimed that Fayez Abu Akar Company in Khan Younis City, which imported these containers, was not allowed to import because it was linked with financing Palestinian organizations, as was declared by the Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz two months ago.

Israel considered that the funds going to certain Palestinian factions in the occupied territories fuel what they referred to as "the infrastructure of terrorism", and that confiscating these goods was part of cutting off these funds.

AL-QUDS BRIGADE (founded by Mahmud Khawaja) CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR QASSEM ROCKET ATTACK ON A NEGEV MOSHAV, AL-QUDS aka PIJ LINKS TO TAMPA FL


Al-Quds Brigades claims responsibility for Qassam attack on Moshav, Published: 05.31.08, 14:04 / Israel News
The al-Quds Brigades, Islamic Jihad's (PIJ) armed wing, claimed responsibility for the Qassam attack on a Negev moshav that moderately injured a foreign worker. (Ali Waked)

PIJ's violent military wing, Sayeret Al-Quds Brigades, have been responsible for firing most of the Qassam rockets from Gaza into Israel. Iran also provides PIJ with an estimated $2 million in state-sponsored funding to PIJ annually.
PIJ has strong links to Tampa Fl, were local businessmen use trade based money laundering to help fund the Al-Quds Brigades terrorists in Gaza.
Mahmud al-Khawaja organized the Saraya al-Quds aka Al-Quds Brigades in 1992 which is the armed wing of palestinian islamist organisation Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Mahmud al-Khawaja aka Mahmoud Khawaja was the Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader who revived its campaign of attacks against Israeli targets in 1992, which included suicide bombings against civilians as well as military targets.
In a presentation on its website about its military wing, Saraya al-Quds, Islamic Jihad asserts that the formation of a military wing dates from 1992, "when the martyr Mahmud al-Khawaja established an organized military agency to replace the different unorganized, individual groups." This statement also claims that "the military wing of Jihad was the first to introduce those tactics," referring to suicide bombers (istishadiyiin).
June 22 1995: Israeli undercover unit shoot and kill Islamic Jihad leader Mahmud al-Khawaja near his home in Gaza’s Shati Camp.
PIJ's current head, Ramadan Abdullah Shallah, was a former resident of Tampa and obtained his SSN 589-17-6824 in Tampa. Shallah's website that was hosted in Dallas, Texas USA has been shut down.
Part I of interview with Secretary General of Islamic Jihad Movement Dr. Ramadan Abdullah Shallah, by Ghassan Sharbal, date and place not given: "Shallah: Islamic Jihad Launched First Martyrdom Operation in Palestine in 1993"]
[Ramadan Shallah] Such as martyr Mahmud al-Khawaja, the commander of the military wing of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Gaza (Al-Quds) who sent the two martyrs Anwar Sukkar and Salah Shakir to carry out the Bayt Lid operation in which 22 Israeli soldiers were killed. Mahmud was a student at the Islamic University in Gaza and was one of the first young men to join the movement in Gaza in 1982. He was the president of the student group of the movement at the Islamic University. He was a young man of strong physique and will. He became the commander of the movement's military wing (Al-Quds); after that, the enemy assassinated him on 22 June 1995, about four months before the assassination of Dr. Fathi Shiqaqi.
Dr. Sami Al-Arian (TAMPA FL): The North American leader of the Islamic Jihad, responsible for raising funds for the organization's terror activities in Tampa Fl. He was arrested in 2003 and later indicted by the US attorney general for 50 counts of operating a racketeering enterprise and supporting terror acts. He pled guilty to charges of conspiracy to help members of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in nonviolent activities and sentenced to 57 months in prison. He stands to be deported from the US upon completion of his sentence.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad is currently manufacturing rockets capable of reaching a 12.5-mile range. The new rockets (6.5 caliber) are armed with a warhead packed with twice the amount of explosives (22lbs) found in a standard Qassam. In addition, the IDF notes that terrorist groups in Gaza have recently obtained two new types of Iranian-made 4.7 inch caliber mortar shells. One is equipped with an auxiliary engine and can travel up to 6.2 miles, while the other is capable of striking a target from a distance of 3.7 miles.

In April 2006, media reports indicated that Palestinian terrorists were manufacturing the Quds-3 along with a multiple-rocket launcher system. The Quds-3, developed in the Gaza Strip with the aid of PA funding and Iranian operatives, is based on the Russian Grad and BM21 Katyusha. The Quds-3 was test-fired against Ashkelon on March 28 and weighs 66 kilos. The rocket carries an explosive payload of 17 kilograms. The 122mm launcher fires 10 rockets simultaneously to a distance of 18-30 kilometers. The system, capable of firing 40 rockets within 20 seconds, weighs 13 tons and enables Palestinians in the Gaza Strip to strike Ashkelon, Ashdod, Netivot and Ofakim. The rockets are launched by a crew that pulls back approximately 60 meters from the launcher and releases the rockets by pulling a wire.

In May 2006, Islamic Jihad operatives fired a Grad-class Katyusha rocket at the western Negev community of Netiv Ha'asara. According to Middle East Newsline, Islamic Jihad has test-fired at least three indigenous versions of the Russian-origin BM-21 Grad rocket (from the northern Gaza Strip) for range and accuracy. "We believe Islamic Jihad, probably with [help from] Hamas, has been developing and producing prototypes of the Grad...We know they have the expertise and the equipment to produce the rocket."

FBI PROTESTS WAY TOO MUCH IN DEFENDING THE ISLAMIC CENTER OF SAN DIEGO, AGAIN SAYS BILL WARNER PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR

For Immediate Release Washington, D.C. May 30 2008, FBI National Press Office.
FBI Response to Allegations of Mosque Surveillance and Monitoring of the Muslim Community (ISLAMIC CENTER OF SAN DIEGO).
FBI Assistant Director John Miller issued the following statement: "The FBI does not monitor the "lawful activities" of individuals in the United States, nor does the FBI have a surveillance program to monitor the constitutionally protected activities of houses of worship. We do not target or monitor "legal activity of Muslim groups" anywhere in the nation.

Investigations or surveillance of individuals or organizations are predicated on specific standards set in the Department Of Justice Attorney General Guidelines.

The FBI is the lead agency for investigating violations of federal civil rights laws, and we take that responsibility very seriously. Over the last several years, the FBI has worked to strengthen its relationships with Muslim communities, resulting in many valued partnerships.

We appreciate the assistance of the community groups for bringing these concerns to our attention. We intend to continue this dialogue.” (The FBI is protesting a wee bit too much)

HOWEVER, ANOTHER STORY IS;

May 22nd 2008...The FBI was looking at specific mosques in Los Angeles and San Diego. The mosque in Clairemont was one,” said a source who confirmed some of the files' contents.

That mosque, the Islamic Center of San Diego, is one of 18 houses of worship in the county with prayer services for Muslims, said the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

At his court-martial, Maziarz testified that Richards kept in touch with him during the 2004 deployment in Iraq by talking on a secure, government-issued satellite phone. Maziarz said he used Richards' logon and password to access confidential computer accounts on the Joint Worldwide Intelligence Communications System and Secret Internet Protocol Router Network.

He also said he regularly obtained and disseminated secret files, such as surveillance reports transmitted by Lauren Martin, an intelligence analyst at U.S. Northern Command headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colo. The command handles information about suspected terrorism operations nationwide, and Martin was responsible for the region that included Southern California, Maziarz testified.

According to investigators' reports, Richards said in interviews that he cold-called Martin after the Sept. 11 attacks and asked her to supply the Los Angeles Terrorist Early Warning Group with region-specific intelligence. He wanted law enforcement to have more ammunition to build cases against suspected terrorists ( in the San Diego area).

The Islamic Center of San Diego has had a history of links to terrorism, see CBS news report here , two of the 9/11 hijackers are linked to the Islamic Center of San Diego.

Dec. 2, 2001 issue — When the two Qaeda operatives arrived at Los Angeles International Airport around New Year's 2000, they were warmly welcomed. Nawaf Alhazmi and Khalid Almihdhar would help hijack American Airlines Flight 77 and crash it into the Pentagon a year and a half later, but that January in Los Angeles, they were just a couple of young Saudi men who barely spoke English and needed a place to stay. They are linked to the Islamic Center of San Diego

MUSLIM CONVENIENCE STORE OWNERS CONVICTED IN SCHEME TO SELL MILLIONS OF SMUGGLED CIGARETTES IN TEXAS, ALSO SEE TAMPA FLORIDA

U.S. Department of JusticeU.S. Attorney’s Office Western District of Texas Johnny Sutton, U.S. Attorney; FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE. Shana Jones, Special Assistant Daryl Fields, Public Information Officer (210) 384-7440 May 27, 2008
FINAL 5 DEFENDANTS CONVICTED IN SCHEME TO SELL MILLIONS OF COUNTERFEIT SMUGGLED CIGARETTES United States Attorney Johnny Sutton announced that in San Antonio, the five remaining defendants each face up to five years in federal prison after pleading guilty this afternoon to their roles in a large-scale counterfeit cigarette distribution operation based in San Antonio.

To date, 20 defendants have been convicted in this case. Authorities are still searching for Aziz Abdallah Abdelaziz and Awni Mahmoud Derieh (aka "Asfar Munther").

In the scheme, the defendants, some of whom are convenience store owners, knowingly conspired to obtain stolen and/or smuggled cigarettes which contained counterfeit Texas tax stamps and profit by reselling them directly to the public. During this investigation, authorities seized over $800,000 cash generated as a result of this criminal enterprise.

This investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the San Antonio Police Department.

ORIGINAL POST; 20 ARRESTED FOR SCHEMING TO SELL MILLIONS OF COUNTERFEIT CIGARETTES; United States Attorney Johnny Sutton, FBI Special Agent in Charge Ralph Diaz, ATF Special Agent in Charge Donnie Carter, ICE Special Agent in Charge Alonso Pena and San Antonio Police Chief Albert Ortiz announced federal charges filed against 20 individuals in connection with a large-scale counterfeit cigarette distribution operation in San Antonio.

The indictment was unsealed this afternoon by United States Magistrate Judge John Primomo. Undercover federal agents, working with confidential informants, posed as black-market suppliers of the cigarettes. They also filled orders for Enfamil infant formula and EBT (food-stamp) cards that were used to buy merchandise that was resold at local convenience stores, according to court records.

The indictment alleges that since April 21, 2004, the defendants conspired together to ship, transport, receive, possess, sell and distribute approximately 9.6 million counterfeit cigarettes. The indictment specifically alleges 30 individual transactions involving the sale of counterfeit cigarettes–cigarettes whose packages contained falsely made, forged, altered or counterfeit Texas tax stamps. According to the indictment, each individual transaction involved at least 300 cartons of counterfeit cigarettes that the defendants would generally purchase for between $10 and $15 per carton.

In addition to the conspiracy charge, the indictment charges Sayel Shihaden Abdallah, Makram Sayel Hijaz and Maisar Hassa Abdalla with unauthorized use, acquisition or possession of food stamps. The indictment alleges that on March 17, 2005, Abdallah and Hijaz purchased $2,046 worth of food stamps for $1,000 cash; Abdalla, $505 in food stamps for $250 cash.

Finally, Isam Hmaidan is also charged with one count of dealing in counterfeit obligations. On September 14, 2005, Isam Hmaidan allegedly sold four counterfeit $100 bills to an undercover agent.

In addition to the arrests this morning, investigators executed several search warrants and seized approximately $500,000 in cash and numerous vehicles believed to be proceeds from the alleged criminal enterprise.

AL-QAEDA LINKED TO AL-SHABAAB IN SOMALIA THROUGH IT'S SENIOR LEADERS, AL-SHABAAB HAS A USA HOSTED WEBSITE BY DOTSTER IN VANCOUVER WA.

Al Shabaab, the Islamist militant group active in Somalia, is tied closely to al Qaeda through its senior leaders, (CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE) many of whom trained with and carried out operations in the name of al Qaeda prime. Its leaders’ training and experience lend al Shabaab strength. Furthermore, al Shabaab is organized in such a way that if a senior leader is killed, operations suffer minimal long-term disruption. STRATFOR REPORT.

Al-Shabaab has a website (see here) hosted in the USA by the Dotster Web Hosting Co in Vancouver WA, Dotster refuses to shut down the terror site of the Al-Qaeda run Al-Shabaab, some sort of 'Freedom of Speech" issue for a group desiganted by the US Treasury Department as a Foreign Terrorist Organization and as a and as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under Section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224, what are they thinking?

The Columbian Newspaper in Vancouver WA, backs the decision of the Dotster Web Hosting Co in not shutting down the terrorist website of the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabaab, what are they thinking ?

On February 29, 2008, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice designated al-Shabaab (aka al-Shabab, aka Shabaab, aka the Youth, aka Mujahidin al-Shabaab Movement, aka Mujahideen Youth Movement, aka Mujahidin Youth Movement, aka MYM, aka Harakat Shabab al-Mujahidin, aka Hizbul Shabaab, aka Hisb’ul Shabaab, aka al-Shabaab al-Islamiya, aka Youth Wing, aka al Shabaab al-Islaam, aka al-Shabaab al-Jihaad, aka the Unity of Islamic Youth) as a Foreign Terrorist Organization under Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (as amended) and as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under Section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224 (as amended).

The consequences of these designations include a prohibition against the provision of material support or resources to al-Shabaab and blocking of all property and interests in property of the organization that are in the United States, or come within the United States, or the control of U.S. persons. Secretary Rice took this action in consultation with the Attorney General and the Secretary of the Treasury. Designations play a critical role in our fight against terrorism and are an effective means of curtailing support for terrorist activities and pressuring groups to renounce terrorism.

Al-Shabaab is a violent and brutal extremist group with a number of individuals affiliated with al-Qaida. Many of its senior leaders are believed to have trained and fought with al-Qaida in Afghanistan.

The main link between Somalian Islamist militant group al Shabaab and al Qaeda is al Shabaab’s senior leadership. Many of al Shabaab’s senior leaders both trained with and conducted operations in the name of al Qaeda prime:

Aden Hashi Ayro is known to have traveled to Afghanistan sometime before 2001. While he was there, al Qaeda prime trained him in explosives and insurgent tactics. He ultimately returned to Somalia around 2003, where he established his own network and launched a series of operations. He is credited with multiple attacks against foreign aid workers and also is suspected in the murder of a journalist for the British Broadcasting Corp. He has since been described by multiple sources as al Qaeda’s military commander in Somalia. Ayro was killed in a May 1 U.S. airstrike.

Fazul Abdullah Mohammed was involved with al Qaeda prime. He was instrumental in training warlord Mohamed Farah Aidid’s militia in 1993 and helped plan and organize the 1998 bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania as well as the hotel bombing in Mombasa, Kenya, and a surface-to-air attack on an Israeli jetliner in 2002. He went on to become a part of the leadership of the Supreme Islamic Courts Council (SICC) and subsequently a senior operational commander in al Shabaab. U.S. forces have targeted him on numerous occasions.

Abu Taha al-Sudani, also known as Tariq Abdullah, was al Qaeda’s leader in East Africa and received training from al Qaeda prime in explosives. He is thought to have had close ties to Osama bin Laden and other high-level al Qaeda and al Shabaab commanders. The United States has also implicated him as the main financier for various al Qaeda operations in East Africa.
Hassan Turki and SICC leader Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys are longtime allies and are believed to be orchestrating the Somalian insurgency. Turki also has links to al Shabaab and al Qaeda. He operated a training camp in southern Somalia and was targeted in a March 2007 airstrike but is thought to have survived. His camp was known to have housed al Qaeda-linked militants and trained al Shabaab fighters. In 2004, the U.S. government formally designated Turki as a financier of terrorism.


Gouled Hassan Dourad was part of an al Qaeda cell operated by al-Sudani and has links to al Qaeda prime. The U.S. government implicated him in a mid-2003 plot to bomb Camp Lemonier, a U.S. Special Forces base in Djibouti that hosts the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa contingent. Camp Lemonier has served as a the main U.S. operating base in the region — along with forward operating bases in Ethiopia — for many of the U.S. airstrikes on militant targets in Somalia. Dourad is currently being held at the U.S. detention center in Guantanamo Bay.

"An example of Allah’s curse upon a US Soldier May 29, 2008. Posted by revolution in : 'Irāq, Images, United States of Losers , add a comment Allah says,…So it was not Allah who wronged them, but they used to wrong themselves. [At-Taubah: 70] This news item is an example of what happens when Allah’s curse is upon the US Soldier, wallahuAlam. It can come in different ways; this just happens to be one of those ways which are the scariest. Alhamdullilaah, a huge percentage of US Soldiers are cursed with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder); we ask Allah to curse more American soldiers. In addition, we ask Allah to make the American soldiers realize that the only way out of the curse is to sincerely convert to Islaam".

Samir Khan in Charlotte NC at his website http://revolution.muslimpad.com/ is getting out of control, the photos that he is posting today along with the incendiary articles are going way past free speech, he is inciting violence against the US and he lives in the US in a upscale golf course community, coddled by his parents and hiding behind a facade of his constitutional rights while he advocates the destruction of the USA.

The photos that he posted today are heartbreaking of wounded soldiers of the 82nd Airborne in Iraq.

The 82nd Airborne is based only 110 miles from Samir Khan's house, how ironic, this is my fathers outfit and he jumped on D-Day, 6/06/1944, into Ste-Mere-Eglise behind the lines of Normandy with the 82nd Airborne, he would be turning over in his grave if he knew what was going on in the Country that he fought for..

May 22, 2008...Earlier this week, the Pentagon announced that the 3rd Brigade Combat Team of the 82nd Airborne Division, which has already been deployed three times since September 11, 2001 to Iraq, will be deployed again this fall, making it one of a handful of BCT’s that will have seen four tours.
During its last Iraq deployment which was extended to 15 months, the 3rd BCT suffered the highest fatalities of any unit in the 82nd Airborne Division; according to VFA research, the 3rd BCT lost 49 Soldiers during its 15-month long deployment to Iraq.

Rep. Sue Myrick (NC-9) released her “Wake Up America” agenda. Rep. Myrick’s goal in releasing her agenda is to alert, and educate, Americans to terrorist threats here at home posed by radical Islamic extremists. This is her agenda, this is not the agenda of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus.This agenda is the start of Rep. Myrick’s work on these issues. As she moves forward on these points, she will update the public on her findings.

Her ten point agenda is below.
1). Will call for a government investigation of all U.S. military chaplains who were approved by Abdurahman Alamoudi.

2). Will call for a government investigation of all U.S. prison chaplains who were approved by Abdurahman Alamoudi.


4). Will call for the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) 501(c)(3) non-profit status which restricts “lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.”


6). Will call on the Government Accountability Office to conduct an audit to verify the total sovereign wealth fund investment in the United States.

TERROR AND THE INTERNET: SENATOR LIEBERMAN RESPONDS TO NEW YORK TIMES (AND MEDIA) ON "WOULD BE CENSOR".

The Internet is simply a means of communication, like the telephone, but that has not prevented attempts to demonize it — the latest being the ludicrous claim that the Internet promotes terrorism. NEW YORK TIMES EDITORIAL .......What ??????

Can anyone in their right mind who has ever "surfed the net" believe such a misinformed statement as above "the ludicrous claim that the Internet promotes terrorism" are you kidding me, what do you think Nick Berg would have had to say about that, if al-Qaeda in Iraq didn't cut his head off "on the Internet".

Joe Lieberman, "Would-Be Censor" joins "Internet Censor" Bill Warner in May 2008 war of words with the left wing media on shutting down al-Qaeda terror websites hosted in the USA and YouTube videos also produced by al-Qaeda. Al-Qaeda is engaged in a wartime communications strategy to recruit, amass funds and inspire savage attacks against American troops and civilians of the USA (see two articles below), I am proud to be in the company of such an insightful man.
A Florida man’s heart might be in the right place, but he is misguided in his bid to get a Vancouver Internet service company to drop a Somali-language Web site. Bill Warner, a Sarasota private investigator (http://www.wbipi.com/ ), wants Dotster Inc. of Vancouver to refuse service to http://www.kataaib.net/ .

Warner, who has launched similar purge efforts in other cities (Boston, Tampa, Phoenix and Dallas) with other Internet companies, says kataaib.net supports an al-Qaida organization in Somalia, where war and genocide are tragic facts of daily life. “There are groups like this one that associate with al-Qaida through Web sites that help promote the ideology, help find new recruits and help the effort to support terrorism,” Warner said in a Tuesday, May 07, 2008 Columbian story by Courtney Sherwood. “It’s not freedom of speech. This site should not be hosted in Vancouver.”

Terror and the Internet: Senator Lieberman Responds to New York Times (and media) on "Would-Be Censor”.
Published: May 28, 2008
New York Times
To the Editor:

In “Joe Lieberman, Would-Be Censor” (editorial, May 25), you proclaim it “ludicrous” to “claim that the Internet promotes terrorism.” But the fact is that the Internet, through violent jihadist videos posted on YouTube, is being used to recruit terrorists here in the United States. And that is what I have asked YouTube, in the national interest, to stop.

The bipartisan staff of the Senate committee I head, which oversees homeland security matters, has documented that Islamist terror networks rely extensively on the Internet in their continuing war against the American people. The intelligence community, moreover, sounded the alarm about proliferation of radical Islamist sites in a 2007 National Intelligence Estimate: warning that, even absent guidance from established terror organizations, the Internet enables “alienated people to find and connect with one another, justify and intensify their anger, and mobilize resources to attack.”

What is ludicrous is the claim that YouTube has been pressured to pull down videos just because I don’t like them. Al Qaeda and its affiliates are engaged in a wartime communications strategy to recruit, amass funds and inspire savage attacks against American troops and civilians. Their Internet videos are branded with logos, authenticating them as enemy communications. They are patent incitements to violence, not First Amendment-protected speech. And they fall outside Google’s own stated guidelines for content.

The peril here is not to legitimate dissent but to our fundamental right of self-defense. For those of us in government, protecting Americans is the highest responsibility. Asking private parties operating public communications systems to assist that effort is common sense.
U.S. Senator from Connecticut
Washington, DC
May 27, 2008
Rep. Sue Myrick (NC-9) released her “Wake Up America” agenda. Rep. Myrick’s goal in releasing her agenda is to alert, and educate, Americans to terrorist threats here at home posed by radical Islamic extremists. This is her agenda, this is not the agenda of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus.This agenda is the start of Rep. Myrick’s work on these issues. As she moves forward on these points, she will update the public on her findings.
Her ten point agenda is below.
1). Will call for a government investigation of all U.S. military chaplains who were approved by Abdurahman Alamoudi.
2). Will call for a government investigation of all U.S. prison chaplains who were approved by Abdurahman Alamoudi.
4). Will call for the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) 501(c)(3) non-profit status which restricts “lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.”
6). Will call on the Government Accountability Office to conduct an audit to verify the total sovereign wealth fund investment in the United States.
7). Will attempt to cancel scholarship student visa program with Saudi Arabia until they reform their textbooks.
8). Will introduce a bill to restrict R-1/R-2 religious visas for imams who come from countries that do not allow reciprocal visits by non-Muslim clergy.
10). Will introduce or sponsor a bill to block the sale of sensitive military munitions, especially Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAMs), to Saudi Arabia.

OPEN LETTER TO THE SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE AND THE NEW YORK TIMES, CAUTION PANDERING TO ISLAMIC RADICAL MALIKA EL AROUD IS HARMFUL TO "OUR HEALTH"

OPEN LETTER TO THE SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE AND THE NEW YORK TIMES, CAUTION PANDERING TO ISLAMIC RADICAL MALIKA EL AROUD IS HARMFUL TO "OUR HEALTH"

On Wednesday May 28th 2008 the Sarasota Herald Tribune reprinted a story from the NY Times concerning and romanticizing Malika El Aroud a Belgium female "Islamic Blogger" with blue slippers monogrammed in gold SEXY, she advocates the violent over through of the USA, the UK and every other non-believer Western Country, quote "She calls herself a female holy warrior for Al-Qaida" the same al-Qaida that Osama ben-Laden admits was responsible for the attacks on September 11th 2001 in the USA....

Malika El Arouud's first husband had a part in the execution of the beginning of the 9/11/01 attacks, in early 2001 she followed her husband to Afghanistan as he trained at an al-Qaida camp, she was installed in a camp for foreign women in Jalalabad, her husband became ready for his mission and two days before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, carried out a suicide bombing in Afghanistan that killed the anti-Taliban resistance leader Ahmed Shah Massoud at the behest of Osama bin Laden. Massoud was the target of a suicide attack which occurred at Khwaja Bahauddin on September 9, 2001. The attackers were two Arabs, Abdessater Dahmane and Bouraoui el-Ouaer both Tunisians, Malika El Around's husband Abdessater Dahmane was killed, and she took to the Internet as the widow of a martyr (this woman is a terrorist).

The September 9, 2001 suicide bomb attack in which Dahmane and another man assassinated Ahmed Shah Massoud, the legendary leader of the anti-Taliban Northern Alliance in Afghanistan was a vital mission: Taliban support needed to be shored up in anticipation of al Qaeda's 9/11/01 attack on America. Dahmane and a fellow Tunisian, Bouraoui el Ouaer, posing as television journalists arranged an interview with Massoud. A bomb that had been hidden in the camera exploded.

Dahmane, a Tunisian al Qaeda recruit was, like his wife Malika El Around were/are devoted to bin Laden.

The same scenario with a "supposed" interview with President Bush almost occured in Sarasota Fl on 9/11/01.

On September 11th 2001 at around 6:00 AM Longboat Key Fire Marshall Carroll Mooneyhan was at the front desk of the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort in Sarasota Fl as Bush prepared for his morning jog. From that vantage point, Mooneyhan overheard a strange exchange between a Colony receptionist and security guard.
A van occupied by men of Middle Eastern descent had pulled up to the Colony stating they had a "poolside" interview with the president, Mooneyhan said. The self-proclaimed reporters then asked for a Secret Service agent by name. Guards from security relayed the request to the receptionist, who had not heard of either the agent or plans for an interview, Mooneyhan said.


The receptionist gave the phone over to a nearby Secret Service agent, who said the same thing: no one knew of an agent by that name or of any poolside interview. The agent told the occupants of the van to contact the president's public relations office in Washington, D. C., and turned them away from the premises, Mooneyhan said.


Zaine labdeen Ibrahim Omer called Sarasota police on Sept. 11, hours before Bush left town with concerns about 3 Sudaneese men in town led by"Ghandi" who had made violent threats.”

Several hours before the alleged assassination attempt took place of President Bush on 9/11/01, Zaine labdeen Ibrahim Omer delivered his warning. Its right there in black and white in the police report, which was taken at 4.07 AM on the morning of September 11. The Sarasota police immediately called in Secret Service agents guarding the President, who was spending the night at the Colony Beach & Tennis Resort, a pricey complex on Longboat Key, a long narrow island just off Sarasota.


Within hours Secret Service agents were searching an apartment in Sarasota, where they took a number of Sudanese men into custody (see complete Sarasota Police report) . They arrested three occupants from Sudan; they were questioned for the next ten hours, according to one, Fathel Rahman Omer. The Secret Service also raided a beauty supply store in Sarasota, owned by one "Hakim," who identified the mysterious "Ghandi" as a member of the Sudanese People's Liberation Army, itself closely allied with the Taliban and Al Queda.


In a August 24th 2006 interview with CNN, Malika El Around she said "It's easy for me to describe the love my husband felt because I felt it myself," she said. "Most Muslims love Osama. It was he who helped the oppressed. It was he who stood up against the biggest enemy in the world, the United States. We love him for that."

She remarried Moez Garsalloui, a Tunisianin in 2005/2006 , and she and her new husband were convicted in Switzerland for operating pro-al-Qaida Web sites. Now, according to the Belgian authorities, she is a suspect in what they believe is a plot to carry out attacks in Belgium. (this woman is a terrorist)

"Vietnam is nothing compared to what awaits you on our lands," she wrote to a supposed Western audience in March about wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. "Ask your mothers, your wives to order your coffins." (this woman is a terrorist).


Her new "husband" Moez Garsalloui, was detained last December with 13 others in what the authorities suspected was a plot to free a convicted terrorist from prison and to launch an attack in Brussels. But Belgian law required that they be released within 24 hours, because no charges were brought and searches failed to turn up weapons, explosives or incriminating documents, Moez Garsalloui has now dropped out of sight, on another al-Qaeda venture. Now, even as Malika El Aroud remains under constant surveillance, she is back home rallying militants on her main Internet forum and collecting more than $1,100 a month in government unemployment benefits. (this woman is a terrorist).

Perhaps the Sarasota Herald Tribune and the New York Times (which owns the Sarasota Herald) could spend their journalistic efforts in helping to get websites such as Malika El Aroud's (which spew terrorist propaganda 24/7 with "Death to the West" at the fore front) shut down and perhaps help prevent another 9/11.

Certain groups work very ward in shutting down jihad websites like Malika El Aroud's, she is the enemy, she is a terrorist, she wants you and everyone of the non-believers to either convert to Islam or perish, it is just that simple.

In the very short time that I have worked with major main stream newspapers in shutting down terrorist websites nationwide we have obtained very positive results in Tampa Fl Phoenix AZ, Boston MA and National Press with Fox News.

Just last week Sen. Joseph Lieberman has made public statements and requested that YouTube cancel the numerous terror videos that show US soldiers shot or blown up by al-Qaeda in Iraq or the Taliban in Afghanistan, YouTube shut down 80 such videos, but many more exist.

Al-Qaeda is winning the propaganda war on the Internet and the Sarasota Herald Tribune and the New York Times need not help them along.

AL-QAEDA VIDEO ENCOURAGING "NUCLEAR JIHAD" ON (2B-68-aP-7m-(9)) SEPTEMBER 2008.

Al-Qaeda Video Encouraging 'Nuclear Jihad' (2B-68-aP-7m-(9)) According to some sympathizers of the terrorist group on the forum 'Ekhlas' www.ek-ls.org , the attack should take place next September 2008 with a plague or pestilence, click image for link to al-Qaida website.

TRANSLATION FROM ITALY GLOBAL NATION
Dubai, May 27. -(Aki) - A simple video jihadi propaganda or a dangerous signal to send to some sleeper cell in the West? 'This is the first question we have set visiting Islamic forums on the Internet after seeing a movie entitled' Nuclear Terrorism '. This is a video that was not signed by any of acronyms jihadiste operating on the Web, but that concerns more than others because of its content.


"Hit civilians in the West mercilessly using, like them, weapons of mass destruction": this is only one of the appeals contained in the movie that lasts 39 minutes. The document presents itself as a sort of message in code and warns of the imminent execution of a terrorist attack. Before being posted on the forum 'Ekhlas' www.ek-ls.org Indeed, it became a banner advertising that emphatically announced:''pray pray, God is Great. .

"America is ruined by a mortal blow jihadi nuclear''. Clicking on these words you access to what appears to be a documentary in which they are mounted different images: from the speeches of leaders of al-Qaeda up to Western documentaries and other films Islamists. The objective of this product is to encourage followers of al-Qaeda to use weapons of mass destruction to strike the West, but maybe there's more. The video opens, as always happens in these kinds of movies , With two verses of the Koran. They are those of the second Sura, verses 193 and 194, which reaffirm the principle of''eye for eye, tooth for a tooth''and recite: "And fight them until there is more persecution and the cult is (made only ndr) to Allah .

Desistono If there is hostility, apart from those who prevaricano. Sacred Month by month sacred and everything prohibited a contrappasso. Aggredite those who attack. Fear Allah and know that Allah is with those who I fear." . Begin then the transmission of a documentary broadcast in November 2004 by the Italian 'Rai News 24' entitled 'The hidden massacre' in which he accused American soldiers of having used chemical weapons against Iraqis in Fallujah. Once the documentary, included in its version in Arabic, you hear a voice in the background that Arabic draws attention of the viewer.

It seems to be that of a jihadist preacher who holds a sort of lesson in which indottrina a group of people on the need to carry out attacks with nuclear and chemical weapons against the United States and Europe. "This call it terrorism, but we can not stop the aggression against our countries if we do not use these weapons. As has been for Russia and the United States when it competed in possess nuclear weapons. If you have one, we too must have." . Then the voice-overs invites mujahidin to learn how to obtain weapons of mass destruction and the video shows a document entitled: 'Rules for the use of weapons of mass destruction against the unbelievers', written by Naser Bin Hamed al - Fahd.

This is a document drawn up on May 21, 2003 by one of the Ulema Saudis closer to Salafism and movements of opposition to the royal family justifying and supporting the activities of al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. "They kill our civilians and for this we must also strike them with weapons of mass, this falls into the response to their attacks - continues the speech -. In Jihad we can not do everything 'that make them such as their rape our women and we can not do the same. But on weapons of mass destruction can respond. There are quantities of uranium on the market and after the fall of the Soviet Union there are their nuclear weapons available on the market''.

You can use one of the villages of European countries. This is called terrorism, but all this can not 'finish if not through such an operation against them. You can not stop our operations against civilians carried out by Jews and Christians in our countries if we do not do likewise. The problem is that nuclear weapons are very expensive, while those chemicals are cheap. Only that we want to build factories. The weapons are best to use those kind of bacteriological. This type of barbaric weapons are used by the international community. So why we should not only use them if they are accepted instead by crusaders. "

The film continues alternating images of repertoire taken from video messages made in the past by Osama bin Laden, his deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri and other local representatives of al-Qaeda to support the thesis murderer. Closing appears finally to a very short period time a numeric code (2B-68-aP-7m-(9)) that, according to users of Islamic forums on the Internet, was not inserted there by chance. ''The video released by forum on nuclear strike ends with some letters and numbers - calls' Jund al-Quds' to other users - but at what date is what we will see?''.

In many respond''Only Allah knows'', but someone else that you call 'Jalbib al-Safah' comments:''How to me all the mice will stay the CIA now working to decipher and will be affected by tension and concern''. Writes finally 'Osama':''not dormiranno today employees of the ministries that deal with security in America. According 'Jund al-Quds', the code should contain a word and a date: ''plague 9 / 2008''. So according to these sympathizers of al-Qaeda attack should take place next September with a plague or pestilence, translation of the word 'plague'.

''From what I understand the coup should be done with bacteriological weapons because it speaks of plague and speaks of the ninth month of this year. If so mean that the author of the video wanted to send a signal to those who must execute the order and simultaneously wants to explain how to use these weapons.''
