Abu Mansour al-Amriki aka Omar Hammami the Al-Shabaab Webmaster Via Daphne AL Travelled To Mississauga Suburb of Toronto Same Place NYC Subway Bomber Najibullah Zazi Went, Terror Central in Canada Says PI Bill Warner. FBI Director: Al Qaeda-Linked Somali Group Could Attack U.S.; In early September 2000, FOX News exclusively identified the American mouthpiece for al-Shabaab as a native of Daphne, Ala. Born Omar Hammami, the big-eared and bright-eyed teenager now goes by the name Abu Mansour al-Amriki, or simply "The American."
After FOX News uncovered al-Amriki's identify, his family told a local TV station in Mobile, Ala., that their son traveled to Somalia with his wife but lost his passport there, where he became indoctrinated by al-Shabaab. One source within Mobile's Muslim community said that, after dropping out of college, Hammami travelled to Mississauga Toronto, where he eventually married a Somali woman and became indoctrinated there, (Mississauga Suburb of Toronto) by "angry" individuals. Both Hammami's family and the source within Mobile's Muslim community said Hammami has not spoken to his family in years, more from this source...........
Mississauga 2009 – Officials on both sides of the border erected a wall of silence Saturday over word that an Afghan immigrant Najibullah Zazi arrested on terrorism-related charges in the United States made at least two trips to Mississauga Canada. The reference to Najibullah Zazi’s trips to Canada was almost made in passing Friday by U.S. prosecutor Tim Neff during a Denver court hearing. Zazi is accused of plotting to use weapons of mass destruction to attack commuter trains in New York City to coincide with the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
They say Zazi was stopped by police Sept. 10 as he entered New York, and he dropped his plans for an attack once he realized that law enforcement was on to him. Neff did not give any other details on the Canadian trips and a spokesman said in an email later Friday that he had no comment on them. Reports say that agents with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service were knocking on the doors of relatives of Zazi in Mississauga, Ont, west of Toronto.
“Canada monitors national security concerns and is vigilant in protecting against any terrorist threats,” he responded through email, after numerous attempts to contact him. “Beyond that, I cannot comment on any individual case before the courts, or any individual file that engages in national security.”
But a private investigator in the U.S., who touts himself as a specialist in tracking down suspected terrorists, as well as suspected philanderers, said the potential Mississauga connection is a “red-flag.” “That’s terrorist central in Canada,” said Bill Warner, a private investigator who boasts he has worked with the FBI on cases involving terrorism. “If he was in that city, that’s one of the key spots in Canada for these terror connections and they link back into Atlanta, Chicago, Toledo,” Warner said. The FBI wouldn’t confirm Warner’s credentials, saying it could not reveal who the agency works with as a matter of policy. Zazi is due to appear in court in Brooklyn on Tuesday to face the charges.
Mississauga 2006.....Two men arrested in Atlanta fit the new terrorist model. Syed Haris Ahmed, 21 years old, of Atlanta, was arrested March 23, 2006 after a grand jury returned an indictment charging him with material support of terrorism.
According to a U.S. Justice Department statement, Mr. Sadequee and Mr. Ahmed traveled to Mississauga Canada IN March 13, 2005, to meet with Islamist extremists. The two "stayed with an individual in Mississauga with whom they were conspiring concerning travel to terrorist camps, and met with three subjects of an FBI international terrorism investigation and discussed strategic locations in the United States suitable for a possible terrorist strike," the statement said, citing the complaint against Mr. Sadequee.
One senior FBI official says the duo's plans to launch an attack had reached an advanced stage when they were arrested. "The Atlanta guys were talking about attacking aviation towers in the hopes it would cause planes to crash into each other," the official said. "They were also talking about hitting refiners and were talking about ordering supplies."
Mississauga 2006.....Police recovered three tonnes of ammonium nitrate fertilizer in the 2006 Toronto-Mississauga raids. Commissioner McDonell noted that this amount was three times the amount used by Timothy McVeigh to destroy the federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995, the terror group was plotting to attack targets in Toronto, including the headquarters of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
Al Qaeda has long maintained a presence in the large Toronto suburb of Mississauga, the home town for at least six of the 17 arrested suspects in the massive 2006 Toronto bomb plot, according to The Globe and Mail, the list includes:
Zakaria Amara, 20, of Periwinkle Crescent, Mississauga, Ontario;
Asad Ansari, 21, of Rosehurst Drive, Mississauga, Ontario;
Shareef Abdelhaleen, 30, of Lowville Heights, Mississauga, Ontario;
Qayyum Abdul Jamal, 43, of Montevideo Road, Mississauga, Ontario;
Ahmad Mustafa Ghany, 21, of Robin Drive, Mississauga, Ontario;
Saad Khalid, 19, of Eclipse Avenue, Mississauga, Ontario.
Mississauga was home to the Canadian branch of the Benevolence International Foundation, an Islamic charity dismantled by the U.S. after September 11 on grounds that its funds were being misdirected to al Qaeda.
An international organization with broad links to al Qaeda operations in Bosnia, the Philippines and Chechnya, among others, BIF was also known in Arabic as Al Birr Al Dawalia or Lanjat al Birr.
Mississauga Prior to 2001, Benevolence ran operations in several locations where al Qaeda command-and-control networks dominated the local landscape, including in Peshawar and Islamabad, Pakistan; Khartoum, Sudan; Afghanistan; Sarajevo and Zenica, Bosnia-Herzegovina; and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The Foundation also maintained offices in Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Chechnya, China, Croatia, the Gaza Strip, the former Soviet Republic of Georgia, the Netherlands, Russia, Tajikistan, Yemen, the United Kingdom; and locations in Illinois, Florida and New Jersey in the United States.

As of 2002 Batterjee was head of the Al Shamal Islamic Bank in Sudan and was one of its largest shareholders. According to a 1996 U.S. State Department factsheet the bank was capitalized with $50 million by Osama bin Laden and other National Islamic Front members. Al-Qaeda members who were funded via this bank included Jamal al-Fadl and Wadih el-Hage.
In Canada, BIF also maintained a significant presence, with offices at 2465 Cawthra Rd., #203, Mississauga, Ontario, as well as locations at 3 King Street, South Waterloo, Ontario, and in Ottowa.
Next door to Benevolence, at 2445 Cawthra Road, were the offices of Human Concern International, described as "the first Islamic charity in North America to provide funds to the" mujahideen in Afghanistan, starting in 1979 (Burr and Collins, Alms for Jihad).
Mississauga's Ahmed Khadr, an HCI employee who immigrated to Canada from Egypt in the 1970s, was also an EIJ operative and an "colleague of Osama bin Laden," according to an FBI affidavit. Khadr split his time between Canada and Pakistan. His sons received Canadian citizenship and also became involved in jihadist causes.
Khadr worked for HCI during the 1980s and 1990s, mostly out of Pakistan, according to the FBI. HCI says it severed the relationship in 1995 after Khadr was accused of involvement in a terrorist attack in Pakistan, according to The National Post, a Canadian newspaper. HCI, which has never been formally charged with supporting terrorism, continues to maintain its offices at Cawthra Road and denies that any of its funds were ever used for terrorism.
Ahmed's son, Abdullah Khadr, was arrested in December 2005 by Canadian police to face charges for allegedly purchasing munitions and explosives on behalf of al Qaeda in 2003. Another son, Abdurrahman Khadr, eventually became a CIA informant in Guantanamo Bay and Bosnia, according to PBS Frontline (interview).
Ahmed Khadr became a top al Qaeda leader, according to the affidavit, and helped mediate in the event of conflicts among bin Laden, the Taliban and mujahideen leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. Khadr was eventually given "operational responsibility" for organizing attacks on U.S. forces along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. He was reportedly killed in 2003.
