Amtrak Safety Experts Tell Us How To Survive An Encounter With An 'Armed Person'

Amtrak law enforcement experts instruct you how to respond to a lone gunman (aka armed person):

Remember:

  • Be aware of surroundings. They may be the last thing you ever see.
  • Call 911. Sure, it will take much longer for them to get there than the shooter needs to kill you, but they can use your vain pleas for help to promote their gun control agenda long after you are buried.
  • Take flight if there is an accessible route away from shooter, as opposed to, say, running directly towards the shooter. Once outside, linger by entrance to chat with strangers.
  • If you can't take flight, hide. A random wall or pillar strategically placed in the center of the room will easily meet this demand. Unless by some freak chance the shooter decides to look behind it.
  • If you can't take flight or hide, throw random items at the shooter. Yes, that will probably just piss him off even more than whatever life event pushed him over the edge in the first place, but a duffel bag filled with clothing and toiletries might bring much needed humor to an otherwise hopeless situation. Especially if you launch it fifteen feet toward an attacker twenty feet away.
  • Shoot him. (This option is not available because if you are an armed person, everyone is running from YOU!)

Harry Potter Denied Entrance to U.S.

Maybe Radcliffe should have tried the southern U.S. border instead...

Daniel Radcliffe may have led a charmed life until now - but it seems not even he can work his magic on U.S. customs officers.

The Harry Potter star was stopped by American border guards yesterday when he tried to cross into the country from Canada, because he had failed to properly upgrade his visa.

That's our homeland security for you - deny entrance to a multi-millionaire actor, but allow in millions of criminals who will leech off our system for decades to come. What the hell, it's only tax-payer money.

DHS Approves Of Public Stonings

The Department of Homeland Security has forbidden border agents from defending themselves against rock throwers:

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments.

“Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. [...]

The new rules were issued at the direction of Jeh Johnston, the new head of the Department of Homeland Security.

The rules match the recommendation of a report by an advocacy group that wants to reduce policing of illegal immigration.

The commissioned report was challenged by mid-level DHS officials, who argued that the rules barring self-defense from rock-throwers “could create a more dangerous environment [especially for agents operating] in rural or desolate areas, often alone, where concealment, cover and egress is not an option,” according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

But Johnston overrode the internal response, and forced the implementation of the advocacy groups’ recommendations.

Cornhole Watch: Goatly aka Emerson Begolly Gets 8/12 Years

Chron:

A western Pennsylvania man who pleaded guilty to using the Internet to promote terrorist attacks against American military and civilian targets has been sentenced to 8 ½ years in federal prison.

Twenty-four-year-old Emerson Begolly of Redbank Township was sentenced Tuesday on one count of solicitation to commit a crime of violence. Authorities say he posted on an Islamic extremist Web forum he moderated.

WTAE:
His public defender asked for leniency in exchange for information Begolly has allegedly provided in other terror-related investigations.

Heartbreak Co-Conspirator in Jihad Jane Case Can't Pray in Irish Prison Because of the Porn

I've waited a very long time for this.

An Algerian man jailed in Ireland and wanted by the United States on terrorism charges filed a damages suit against the Irish state on Tuesday, saying his prison conditions were "not even suitable for animals".

Ali Charaf Damache is wanted by the FBI for conspiracy in a foiled international plot to murder a Swedish cartoonist whose depiction of the Prophet Mohammad with the body of a dog caused outrage in Muslim countries.

"Cork Prison is not even suitable for animals," Damache, 47, told the High Court. "There was a television and radio (in my cell). When I practiced my prayer they (cellmates) deliberately put the volume up (and) they put pictures of naked women on the wall. I can't pray in a place where there are naked pictures..."

Oh the horror, if anyone has, you know, contact with some of Damache neighbors, ask them to put this one up for us.

Damache said he had been unable to wash before prayer and handling the Koran, as his faith requires, and was usually allowed to shower and change his underwear just once a week

Also I hear there is a rumor he's keeping hashish in his rectum. Better check that.

Damache was convicted in the Jihad Jane plot. Another accomplice Jihad Jamie (aka Jamie Paulin-Ramirez married Damache upon her arrival in Ireland only to find that Damache was only interested in the Muslima as a sex slave.

Jihad Definitely Ruled Out in Mass Shooting by Guy Who's Last Name is "Zawahiri"

I'm not saying John Zawahiri was motivated by jihad. He might just be crazy and distressed over his parents' divorce.

But, as I've noted in the past, there is something like a reverse jump-to-conclusions when it comes to Muslims accused of crimes. Assuming that everyone will jump to the erroneous conclusion that the Muslim was motivated by his faith, the media immediately informs its readers that the real reason said accused Muslim committed the crime was something else. Indeed, anything else.

This is the case when there are no known motives -- as in the present case -- and even when the motives become clear -- as in the Boston bombings, when media personalities continued to parrot the party line that it might have been mental illness or alienation that motivated the killers long after it was becoming clear that they were religiously motivated.

It's as if the media doesn't realize jumping to conclusions works in both directions.

It also misses the more interesting and nuanced truth that mental illness and motivated by jihad are not mutually exclusively categories. Or that many terrorists are both motivated by jihad, but also have a proximate cause for why they are committing their violence at a particular point in time and space.

In other words, jihad and I'm pissed that my wife left me are also not mutually exclusive categories.

People's motivations are often a mix of a lot of things. I'm not assuming Zawahiri was motivated by jihad, but let's not rule it out either:

The gunman accused of killing four people in a Santa Monica shooting rampage Friday was apparently angry over his parents' divorce and had some mental health issues in the past, a law enforcement source told The Times.

The suspect was identified by five law enforcement sources in Washington and Los Angeles as John Zawahri, in his 20s.

Other sources with knowledge of the investigation said detectives believe the shooting was sparked by a family dispute of some kind but emphasized that the investigation was still in its early stages....

Firefighters later found the bodies of two men inside the house. Police sources said the men were Samir Zawahri, 55, the owner of the house and the father of the alleged gunman, and one of his adult sons....

the gunman allegedly fired at a city bus from front to back, shattering the windows. Passengers dived to the floor for cover...

Campus police intercepted the alleged gunman on the edge of campus and exchanged gunfire with him, authorities said. They continued to trade shots as the man ran toward the school's library and shot a woman outside the building's entrance before disappearing inside.

The woman outside the library later died at a hospital.

During the rampage, five people were wounded, two seriously, police said.

PC Kills: Jihad Experts Decry White House Terror Training Guidelines

Why I'm shocked, just shocked I tell you!

Experts on Islam and terrorism are decrying the Department of Homeland Security’s recently revealed anti-terrorism training guidelines, which pressure cops to ignore Islamic beliefs when investigating terror crimes.

The Boston bombings demonstrated the impact of such training, Andrew McCarthy, a former New York prosecutor, told The Daily Caller.

“The Boston Marathon was bombed by a jihadist who had been investigated by the FBI … [and was confirmed in 2011 to be] an Islamist, which would have been hard not to do since he does not appear to have made any secret of it,” said McCarthy, who persuaded a New York jury in 1995 to convict “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman for his use of Islamic teaching to spur jihad attacks, including the 1993 attack against the Twin Towers

Of course this is happening and has been for a long time. Think 'work place violence' instead of domestic terrorism at Ft Hood and Bronco's declaration of dhimmitude at the UN in regards to the Benghazi terror attack:

Boston Bomber 'Buried' At Undisclosed Site

Garbage dump?

Meanwhile, a very disturbing in the dark thingy: Boston police chief says feds never shared warnings about Tamerlan Tsarnaev

Boston and Massachusetts law enforcement officials confirmed Thursday that federal agents left them in the dark on the growing warning signs about Tamerlan Tsarnaev in the run-up to the Boston Marathon bombing.

Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis, in testimony on Capitol Hill, said his officers on a joint terrorism task force were never told about an explicit warning from the Russian government or about Tsarnaev's travel to the Chechnya region last year. Davis said he would have liked to have known about that activity, and that it "absolutely" would have merited a second look at Tsarnaev.

Davis and Massachusetts homeland security official Kurt Schwartz testified that their officers were not looped in on Tsarnaev until after the bombing.

"At no time prior to the bombings did any member of the Massachusetts State Police or the fusion center have any information or knowledge about the Tsarnaev brothers," Schwartz said. {More....]

Flashback 2011: DHS Secretary Napolitano Says No “Logic” In Profiling Young Muslim Men

From Real Clear Politics via SooperMexican:

"You're not using good logic there. You've got to use actual intelligence that you received. And, so, you might -- all you've given me is a kind of status. You have not given me a technique for tactic or behavior. Something that would suggest somebody is not Muslim, but Islamic, that has actually moved into the category of violent extremists," Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said at a forum on U.S. security and preventing terrorist attacks.

"We have ways to make some of those cuts. And they involve the intel that comes in, the analysis that goes on. For example, we often times, for travelers entering the United States, we won't not do what is called a secondary inspection just because they are a 35-year- old male who appears to be Muslim, whatever that means. But we know from intelligence that if they have a certain travel pattern over a certain period of time, that should cause us to ask some more significant questions than if we don't.

Four people might still be alive and thirty people might still have all their limbs had the Department of Homeland Security used common sense rather than their politically correct "good logic."

New DHS Video: Attack Gunman With Office Supplies

The Department of Homeland Security released this video showing your options during an "active shooter" situation.

Among the recommendations:

1.) Hide! (Duh!)

2.) Attack with scissors or paperclips - whatever is available around the office. Everyone knows scissors will beat anything except rocks.

3.) Call 911 and give a clear description of the shooter's weapons. It will help the gun-control agenda to know which type of weapon frightened you.

4.) When officers arrive, avoid pointing. They might mistake your hand for a gun.

You can be a victim or a potential victim! Remember, the choice is yours!

Arizona: Social Security Bomber Was Rejected Last Year For Citizenship By Homeland Security For - 'Terror-related Activity'..

Someone screwed up royally.

Update on Rusty's post from yesterday: JTTF Investigating Phoenix Casa Grande AZ Social Security Bomber:

He could just be crazy, but it looks like the FBI are treating an Iraqi refugee, Abdullatif Aldosary, who bombed the Phoenix Social Security [Casa Grande..ed] last week as a potential terrorist. In addition to a bomb making guide (which you'd expect to find regardless of motivation) the FBI also discovered the supposedly destitute refugee had $20k in the bank.

It must be nice being a refuge in the US these days. Either that, or he's plugged into a network ....

Well, Patrick Poole @PJTatler has discovered this.
.... But a bombshell report today based on information obtained by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), who had received a request from Aldosary in November 2011 for assistance in obtaining a “green card”.

According to today’s news report, the Department of Homeland Security responded to Gosar’s request on behalf of Aldosary last year by saying that he was ineligible for a change in status because of “terrorism-related grounds of inadmissibility”:

Gosar said DHS responded by saying Aldosary was not eligible for a permanent change to citizenship “pursuant to the terrorism-related grounds of inadmissibility, and that “individuals who engage in terrorism-related activity … are barred from receiving various immigration benefits.”

DHS did not elaborate on what the activity was. Gosar wrote that to be barred from permanent status, under federal law the immigrant must have engaged in activity “indicating an intention to cause death or serious bodily injury, a terrorist activity; to prepare or plan a terrorist activity; to gather information on potential targets for terrorist activity” or belong to “a terrorist organization” among other actions.

In light of the Casa Grande bombing, Gosar questioned why Aldosary was not detained and processed for deportation in November 2011, after it was determined he had engaged in terrorism-related activity.

The bombing happened about a block away from Gosar’s office.

But for the grace of God, no one was injured in the bombing,” Gosar wrote.

Gosar also asked what efforts were made to track and monitor “a known terrorist.”

[Read the rest]

Poole also noted Gosar sent a letter to DHS yesterday.[PDF] over this development.

File this under Domestic Terror AND Homeland Insecurity

Update: Double post above. A two-fer!

Update II: Wait, he owned a car and also had a DL. WTF?

[IPT News]...Local police found Aldosary washing his 2003 Hyundai when they got to his home 14 miles from the Social Security office. One witness described seeing flames shoot from the car as it sped off, and an FBI bomb tech later found "thermal damage to the vehicle, which likely was caused by explosive material," wrote FBI Special Agent Carey A. Cooper in an affidavit.[PDF]
The affidavit states:

Refugee Gets Life for NYC Subway Terror Plot

More for our "what homegrown radical Islamist problem?" files:

Adis Medunjanin, 34, was sentenced in Brooklyn federal court to life plus 95 years for his role in the plot, which targeted the city subway system. ...

At trial earlier this year, prosecutors described how Medunjanin and two former New York high school friends planned to bomb either the subway, Times Square, or another packed location. They were "within days of carrying out this attack," according to the prosecution.

The Bosnia-born Medunjanin, whose family fled to the United States during the war with Serbia in the 1990s, was also convicted of conspiring to murder US military personnel abroad, taking military training from al-Qaeda, and attempting to commit terrorism across national boundaries, among other charges.

I'll note two things.

1) Medunjanin and his two co-conspirators, Najibullah Zazi and Zarein Ahmedzay, were all raised in New York.

2) While all were born abroad, they were radicalized here.

Also, I'm banning myself for being an Islamophobe.

ICE Agents File Suit Against Napolitano Over 'Amnesty' Program..

Previously a sexual harassment lawsuit was filed against Nappy, and now this:

FOX

Ten federal immigration agents have filed suit against Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claiming recent directives are forcing them to break the law and ignore their duties when it comes to deporting illegal immigrants.

The suit was filed Thursday in Texas federal court by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. It challenges recent directives allowing some illegal immigrants -- particularly non-felons and those who came to the U.S. as children -- to stay and, in some cases, get work permits.

The suit, obtained by Fox News, says the agents are being forced to "violate federal law." It says the new directive "unconstitutionally usurps and encroaches upon the legislative powers of Congress." ICE Director John Morton is also named as a defendant.

Kris Kobach, lead attorney on the case, equated the move to give thousands of illegal immigrants a reprieve to the failed Fast and Furious gun-walking operation. [More...]

Social Security Administration Prepares For Martial Law Civil Unrest

UPDATE By DMartyr: Okay, when I initially read this story, it did shock me. I associate the Social Security Administration with providing benefits to the elderly. So, at first, I didn't see a need for a large quantity of ammunition. But after reading responses, both in comments and Rusty's update, I see this really is an over-blown story. The SSA does employ law enforcement agents. They do have a fraud division that may need and use firearms. And the number of bullets ordered is relatively few if they are also used in training.

I concede my initial concern was unfounded and I apologize for posting this story. In my zeal to provide thought provoking topics here at The Jawa Report, I fail to research properly. I will leave the post up for the sake of discourse.

UPDATE: Changed some links and added the SSA request form (under the fold)

ssa_ammo.jpg
(Click to link to General Services Administration Request Page)

With hollow points:

First the DHS needed 450 million rounds of ammunition, then the NOAA requested 46,000 rounds, now we've discovered an online request at FBO.Gov calling for 174,000 rounds of ammunition for the Social Security Administration.

The request actually calls for 174K .357 hollow points that arguably have as much stopping power as any bullet out there, and hollow point to do as much damage to soft tissue as possible on top of that.

WTF? Okay, now I'm scared. Obama is not going to give up his power without a fight. And he doesn't care how many of us he has to take out to keep it.

In case some of you are unfamiliar with weapons and bullets, below the fold I've included two three very short videos, one showing the result of normal ammunition and the other showing the result of hollow points. Also below the fold, the Social Security Administrations request for the ammunition.

Related:
Obama Administration Prepares For Martial Law Domestic Riots During Election Season

UPDATE by Rusty: Just to make it clear, I do not think anything nefarious is going on here. Not at all. DMartyr got the link from Drudge who, as you know, can be a bit of a paranoid from time to time. Like all the recent links reporting *gasp* drones over US soil. As if somehow that was more shocking than the number of police helicopters already in the air.

Anyway, to put the numbers above in context think of how many Social Security offices there are in the US. Hundreds and hundreds. And think about how many of the larger ones have to have security guards. And think about how much 174,000 divided by the hundreds of security guards there are and you actually get a low number.

Some rough math yields something in the range from 150 - 300 rounds per guard.

Hell, I fire that much on any given weekend.

And for gun enthusiasts out there you know that you should be practicing with the same rounds you'd use under real life firing scenarios. Now, I know most of us don't do that. I personally only fire my more expensive rounds on rare occasions and shoot the cheap stuff when I'm having fun.

But I expect these government types should be shooting the more expensive stuff when practicing.

Moreover, if the armed guards carry badges then I'd expect that they'd be required to be at the range at least once a month. Which means at least one clip's worth every 30 days. Assuming they are carrying Glock 31s with a standard 15 round clip then that's 180 rounds fired on the practice range per officer per year.

You see how that ads up real quick?

The reason I'm going on about this is because this is how conspiracy theories get spread. They take an actual fact, but without context try to shock the reader into thinking something abnormal or nefarious is going on. When in actuality 174k hollow points isn't that many. Even for an agency like the Social Security Administration.

DHS Offers Tips To Survive A Shooting

The Department of Homeland Security offers some tips that might help you survive a shooting rampage:

Let me see if I can narrow the video down for you:

1. Unlike home-grown terrorists who plant bombs, crazed shooters won't be white guys in hoodies. They'll be white guys with military crew cuts.

2. Buildings that prohibit legally concealed handguns are prime targets of crazed shooters. They figure, if they're going to kill a bunch of people anyway, why not break a few additional laws. The bastard probably also tore the labels off his mattress before he left home.

3. RUN AWAY! Try and grab a few slower people to take with you. They'll make a great distraction if you run into the shooter. (This also works well during Zombie attacks.)

4. HIDE! Turn off phones. Because, while a huge Xerox copier blocking the door won't reveal your hiding place to the shooter, the Obama speech snippet you use as a ring tone might.

5. KILL the one woman who screams "OH MY GOD!" as soon as you whisper "Shhh! There's a lunatic shooter in the building!"

6. FIGHT! The shooter will most likely leave you alone if you pelt him with office supplies. Imagine how many lives could have been saved had the victims in Colorado just thrown their popcorn at the attacker. Plus, everyone knows an object thrown goes much faster and is more accurate than a bullet fired from a rifle.

7. The fact you survive without a weapon proves beyond all doubt GUN CONTROL works! If you don't survive, well, that just means we need more gun control.

Arizona: Border Patrol union blasts Homeland Security instructions....
To 'run away' and 'hide' from gunmen..

ActiveShooter.JPG
DHS handy dandy 'how to hide from bad people' pocket guide

FORWARD!!

Border Patrol agents in Arizona are blasting their bosses for telling them, along with all other Department of Homeland Security employees, to run and hide if they encounter an "active shooter."

It's one thing to tell civilian employees to cower under a desk if a gunman starts spraying fire in a confined area, say members of Tucson Local 2544/National Border Patrol Council, but to give armed law enforcement professionals the same advice is downright insulting. The instructions from DHS come in the form of pamphlets and a mandatory computer tutorial.

“We are now taught in an ‘Active Shooter’ course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place we are to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’" union leader Brandon Judd wrote on the website of 3,300-member union local. “If we are cornered by such a shooter we are to (only as a last resort) become ‘aggressive’ and ‘throw things’ at him or her. We are then advised to ‘call law enforcement’ and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered)."[More....]

This really wasn't meant for the armed law enforcement officers, you see:
One DHS employee told FoxNews.com the instruction cards were handed out to employees six weeks ago. At the time, he assumed they were only for civilian employees, not armed law enforcement officers within the department, which oversees the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

"Requiring BP agents to follow the same steps is egregious,” he said.

Oh wait..
DHS officials maintain that the Active Shooter course was designed for all employees—civilian and law-enforcement officers-- and no one should rush into a situation where they, or others around them, could get hurt.
Nothing to see here, move along.

Driver Victim Of Spontaneous Combustion

An update to THIS story.

The AP is reporting:

A car that was stopped after a pursuit on a mountainous highway near San Diego exploded and burned Thursday, killing the driver and injuring a Border Patrol agent, authorities said.

There is no evidence that the driver was involved in smuggling migrants, drugs or weapons, said Border Patrol spokesman Steven Pitts.

Whew! Thank goodness! When you hear of cars exploding, you automatically think of terrorism and car bombs and suicide murderers. I'm so happy this appears to be a simple case of spontaneous combustion.

In fact, the investigation seems to be focusing on the fact that, ten years ago, smugglers often drove on the wrong side of the highway to avoid border patrol checkpoints.

FBI: Afghan Murders Could Incite Homegrown Terror

I know my original reaction was, "when do they ever need inciting"? But that kind of misses the point. They're always angry, but events such as what happened in Afghanistan might be the tipping point between angry and violent.

Seattle's King 5 News:

The FBI and Department of Homeland Security are warning that the massacre of 16 civilians in Afghanistan, allegedly at the hands of a soldier from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, could trigger extremists to retaliate here in the U.S....

The FBI and DHS said some websites circulated graphic pictures of Sunday's massacre and called for revenge against the U.S. military. The websites suggested that the military planned the killings and that there were more deaths than what was reported.

We've actually seen a number of incidents where already radicalized individuals felt they needed to take violent action in "revenge" for some alleged misdeed or another.

The Internet and social media are integral ingredients in the rapid radicalization of homegrown terrorists, said a staff study by the Senate homeland security committee that recommended a coordinated government response to counter online radical propaganda and help communities intervene in the radicalization process.

The report, released on Feb. 27 by the staff of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, was based on the close study of the personal writings of Zachary Chesser, the Bristow, VA man now serving a 25-year sentence for threatening the writers of the South Park television show, soliciting violent jihadists to desensitize law enforcement, and attempting to provide material support to Al-Shabaab.

The study also provides some unique detail into Chesser’s motivations and personality.

The Senate staff said Chesser’s case was a classic case study of how quickly online radicalization can occur compared to the traditional process of face to face contact between an aspirant and an established terrorist group.

The .pdf copy of the study is here.

Jawa report was not mentioned in the study, we were basically robbed. But we're getting really used to that ;)

Update: A mention of if not our name, our actions on page 19.

Eunice Abdullah Pleads Guilty

It couldn't happen to a nicer keyboard koranimal.

Jesse Morton, a convert to Islam also known as Younus Abdullah Mohammad, plans to appear in federal court in Alexandria, Va., on Thursday, his lawyer told Politico. He will plead guilty to conspiracy, communicating threats, and internet stalking, Politico reported. Each felony carries a sentence of up to five years in prison.
Hey Eunice, heed Lawrence's advice...

Its almost kind of sad that all the really fun Jihadis are, you know, deflowered.

Veiled Threats

1984-movie-big-brother obama.jpg

The Department of Homeland Security has granted itself the power to "monitor" and collect personal data of journalists. "Journalists," according to their definition, includes anyone who keeps an audience informed of current events.

Under the National Operations Center (NOC)’s Media Monitoring Initiative that came out of DHS headquarters in November, Washington has the written permission to retain data on users of social media and online networking platforms.

Specifically, the DHS announced the NCO and its Office of Operations Coordination and Planning (OPS) can collect personal information from news anchors, journalists, reporters or anyone who may use “traditional and/or social media in real time to keep their audience situationally aware and informed.”

That's means anyone from Brian Williams to even us, the lowly Jawa Report bloggers. But I doubt the DHS will be watching Chris "Tingles Up My Leg" Matthews. Better watch out, right-wing, veteran, Conservative bloggers. If you don't report the news as the Obama Administration sees fit, you might just find yourself the DHS's Big Brother list.

DHS Sets Up Heavily Armed ID Checkpoint At Social Security Office

You know, to catch those right-wing veteran gun-toting Bible-thumping domestic terrorists we hear so much about...

Residents of Leesburg, Florida were shocked to see their local Social Security office turned into a random Homeland Security checkpoint Tuesday morning, as DHS officers armed with semiautomatic rifles and accompanied by sniffer dogs checked identifications of locals.

“With their blue and white SUVs circled around the Main Street office, at least one official was posted on the door with a semiautomatic rifle, randomly checking identifications. And other officers, some with K-9s, sifted through the building,” reports the Daily Commercial.

The activity was part of Operation Shield, an unannounced drill conducted by the DHS’ Federal Protective Service centered around “detecting the presence of unauthorized persons and potentially disruptive or dangerous activities.” (Source)

It makes sense, really. If you want to catch terrorists, where better than a Social Security office where they go to pickup those retirement checks? I mean, you wouldn't want DHS wasting time harassing patriotic Americans in places like Zuccotti Park, Dearborn Mosques, or Border Checkpoints. Yeah, you wouldn't find any "unauthorized persons" or "potentially disruptive or dangerous activities" at those places.

BTW, on behalf of the Obama Administration, the DHS would like to point out that this armed show of power has nothing to do with the impending declaration of martial law. This was just a test.

Awesome! Abu Izzadeen Arrested Yet Again

abuizzadeenjediscum.JPG

Ninemsn.com

British police say 22 people have been arrested outside of the US embassy in London during a protest over the use of military drones in Pakistan.

Scotland Yard confirmed the arrests on Friday at the demonstration organised by a group calling itself United Ummah.

The demonstration was advertised as a gathering that would include Friday prayers outside of the US embassy to draw attention to "the murder of Muslims with drones".

The protest was actually against the strike on Samir Khan and Anwar al-Awaki. The brothers at Ansar Enlgish forum are asking we make Du'ah for Abu Izzadeen and his Akhi from Islam4UK.

Add your best wishes in comments.

NY Jihadi Jose Pimentel, aka Mujahidfisabillilah, Busted

We've been waiting a very long time for this. We have so much on this dude that I'm not sure where to start except to note that we've been following Jose Pimentel for some time and he's one of those hip-hop wannabe type Jihadis.

That, and it took me oh about 15 seconds tracked the bastage down when we first really started looking hard at him back in July.

True Islam_mujahidfisabillilah1 blogspot.jpg

Pajamas:

News is starting to leak about the arrest this weekend of a New York City man who planned to bomb police and military facilities. The NY Post reports:
The NYPD and Manhattan DA’s office have arrested a terror suspect who was planning to bomb city police facilities and US military sites, where he plotted to target returning war personnel and the families who gathered to welcome them home, The Post has learned.

The suspect, who lives in Manhattan, was arrested after he actually purchased bomb-making materials, sources said. He’d been on the authorities’ radar for about a year, the sources said.

joseincourt.JPG

It wasn’t immediately clear exactly where he planned to attack.

We can report here exclusively at PJM that the man arrested is Jose Pimentel of Harlem. On his Facebook page he describes himself as:

I am a Muslim convert from the Dominican Republic looking for other muslims living in the US specially in New York City to share a brotherhood with and to help each other stay firm on the religion. Also looking for anyone that wishes to learn more about Islam and other religions.

Here is a .pdf of the complaint against Jose Pimentel.

Jose was a prolific terrorist blogger and familiar face around the Revolution Muslim and Islam Policy websites. He shares a blog called http://www.kalamullah.com/ who's donations tracked back to Islam4UK and Islampolicy members.

His Youtube channel is here http://www.youtube.com/user/mujahidfisabillilah1.

Here are just a few of his websites.
http://www.trueislam1.com/
http://www.thefewtheproudthemujahideen.blogspot.com
http://allahsservants.blogspot.com
http://steedsofwar.blogspot.com

Oh and Jose, watch the cornhole Akhi!

Update: Reading CNN's description of this guy as a Lone Wolf is laughable. This person is a widely known highly networked individual who was a very active al-Qaeda propagandist in the online Jihadi community.

UpdateII: A note the our friend Jihadi Princess: You can wipe the websites clean all you want. Its too late.

Image credit Yahoo which has more including pics of Jose making his bomb in his mommy's kitchen, just like his bro Samir Khan instructed him to.

Muslims Against Crusades Banned in UK **Bumped**

BBC:

Home Secretary Theresa May is banning Muslims Against Crusades, a group planning an anti-Armistice Day protest.

The organisation had planned to repeat a demonstration seen last year, when members burned poppies near to London's Albert Hall.

Mrs May's order, which comes into force at midnight, makes membership or support of the group a criminal offence.

The organisation is closely linked to a host of other previously-banned groups.

...Muslims Against Crusades is the latest incarnation of the organisation originally set up by extremist preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed, who fled the UK six years ago.

...Its previous incarnations, Al Ghurabaa, The Saved Sect, Al Muhajiroun and Islam4UK are all proscribed groups.

Anjem Choudary, the leading public figure in the organisation, accused the government of attempting to cover up the truth.

But little good it will do because Britain's good friend Canada is still playing host to Muslims Against Crusades' website.

Recent posts there included one by Abu Izzadeen asking of the assassination of President Barrack Obama was legal. Izzadeen, born Trevor Brooks, has since been arrested for violating the conditions of his early release from prison. He was serving time for supporting terrorism.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano Doesn't Know What Anti-Jihadist Bloggers Have Known For Years

Specifically, that one of her own appointees, Mohamed Elibiary, is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Jihad Watch, Atlas Shrugs, and even The Jawa Report warned about this man as far back as 2004.

Had the Department of Homeland Security ran a simple Google search on his name, they would have seen the danger in appointing this man any security clearance within the department.

At a hearing on October 26, 2011 - just two days ago, Napolitano feigns ignorance at Elibiary's radical ties:

Added: In 2004, Elibiary was one of the speakers at a conference to honor Ayatollah Khomeini as a "great Islamic visionary." For those of you who don't know, Khomeini issued a fatwa that included the following:

"A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man's four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl's sister."

Yousef al-Khattab Turns to the Dark Side

Wow it appears Joey has a new hobby, outing Jihobbyists.

Yousef al-Khattab

Today's specimen is Abu Hadeed (shown here using his Youtube nickname). All jihobist like him try to strong arm you into accepting their rhetoric and most end up in jail where they believe they are the 'aseerun'. Anyway he is begging to make his point public so I will give him a platform. Interesting is the amount of times in his posts that he insults Khaleeji Arabs and uses terms like greasy & slimy. Seems to be a classic case of self hate,failure and blame it on the kuffar. You be the judge and don't forget to join his network,because indeed birds of a feather flock together.
I knew Joey would see it our way.

Since Yousef had his falling out with the Jihad community they have turned their hatred against him as well. As they say politics make strange bedfellows.

In fact I'm of the opinion that even though I don't trust Yousef any further than I can throw him, his knowledge and expertise would be invaluable in the fight against terrorism and the spread of al-Qaeda propaganda.

We keep our focus tight here, for the most part we only direct our ire at known designated terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda and those who advocate for murder and terrorism against civilians. Civilians just like Joey.

Why don't you come with us? You're pretty good in a fight. We could use you.

10 Years After 9/11 Shariah4America Begging for Ass Kicking

Click on over to Shariah4America, sit through their introductory sickness in which they "wonder" whether the 19 men who murdered 3,000+ people really were "martyrs". I mean, it's a valid and unsettled question: maybe they were murderers, maybe they were martyrs. Eye of the beholder and what not.

Now tell me they aren't just begging for a good ass kicking? Seriously, I think they are trying to provoke a response. A violent one.

That image of the airplane hitting the Twin Towers? Yeah, these guys are lucky we aren't in the same room right now.

So I guess it worked.

Senator Patrick Leahy(D) Seeks To Cut Aid To Hamas

Oops, I meant aid to elite IDF units:

Senator Patrick Leahy claims Shayetet 13 unit, undercover Duvdevan unit, and the Israel Air Force Shaldag unit are involved in human rights violations in occupied territories.
Sen. leaky Leahy handlers were quick to respond:
Leahy says legislation doesn't aim at Israel, but could hit it.

Senator Leahy does not discuss private conversations he has had for decades with Israeli leaders.

However, the Haaretz article contains significant inaccuracies. He has not proposed legislation to withhold U.S. aid to units of the Israel Defense Forces.

By way of general background about the Leahy Amendment, the law applies to U.S. aid to foreign security forces around the globe and is intended to be applied consistently across the spectrum of U.S. military aid abroad.

The legislation isn't aimed at Israel, but he would support the cut. So yes, IDF aid could be cut, but Leahy isn't targeting Israel. This makes my head spin..

Remember recently the Homeland Insecurity erroneously, so they say, put Israel on a list of 36 nations which

“have shown a tendency to promote, produce, or protect terrorist organizations or their members.”
They said it was a mistake....

Who's next to make a mistake?

Tarek Mehanna's Mouthpiece to Whine Free Speech And Request Dismissal of Material Support of al-Qaeda Charge

mahanna1021.jpg
Sudbury Patch:

Tarek Mehanna, the Sudbury resident accused in a 2010 indictment of conspiring to kill American troops in Iraq, will ask a judge today to dismiss some of the charges accusing him of providing support to al Qaeda, the Associated Press is reporting in the Sacramento Bee.

The report says Mehanna's lawyers will argue today at Moakley Federal Courthouse in Boston that most of his activities are protected by the First Amendment in relation to free speech.

Remember having terrorist propaganda is not by default unlawful. It becomes unlawful when disseminated with the aim of helping al-Qaeda's distribution goals or if it is in such a context that it is clear it is posted with the intent of support and advocacy for al-Qaeda.

We are in a time of war you know. The enemy's propaganda network is a fair and crucial target. No war is ever fought, won or lost without propaganda.

Mehanna's claim of free speech or informational purposes is laughable when you consider the context. See our post here on Mehanna's multiple and long standing connections to multiple convicted terrorists and terrorist propagandists.

Arrested Blogger Identified: Tarek Mehanna

Like clockwork, Mehanna's family defends him as a nice boy who just completed his graduate work to become a pharmacist. What his family may or may not know is that Mehanna goes by the online handle "Abu Sayaba" and runs the "Iskandari" website which is devoted to promoting the Salafi ideology.

For instance, Tarek "Abu Sayaba" Mehanna has, literally, dozens of posts recounting the words of Abdullah Azzam, the intellectual backbone of al Qaeda. Also among his favorite authors are Sayyid Qutb.

In addition to friends like Maldanado who has been convicted on terrorism related charges, Mehanna's online buddies include:

Shades of Swords, who glorifies the executed Bali bombers as martyrs.
Inshallahshaheed, who we have an entire category devoted to and who claims he personally doesn't go off to fight the jihad because "it's hard" and who recently has set up his own media division in support of terrorist organizations.
Jihad Fields Are Calling, who's name pretty much sums it up.

And so on and so forth. In other words, the people he associated himself with online are either a) actively engaged in violent jihad; or b) actively engaged in supporting violent jihad through the distribution of terrorist propaganda.

So his contacts include convicted terrorists and also Samir Khan who now runs AQAP's online magazine that inspired the recent attempted attack on Fort Hood.

His chances of having this dismissed runs about the same as former Revolution Muslim Emir Zack Chesser who plead guilty to Material Support for similar dissemination and advocacy for al-Qaeda.

I put them at zero/zilch/nada unless his lawyer feels he's gotten a sympathetic liberal judge. Its clear he agreed with al-Qaeda, tried to join the Jihad and wrote many times in support of al-Qaeda and its war against the United States.

More background here.

Rep King Hearing: Rep Thompson(D) "Al-Shabab does not appear to present any danger to this homeland"..

bennie thompson_king hearings_.jpg

How did Rep Thompson come to that conclusion? Nat'lPost

The committee report says Al-Shabab had formed “alarming operational ties” with al-Qaeda and its Yemeni affiliate, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). It said American recruits had been trained by senior al-Qaeda operatives.

“With Al-Shabab’s large cadre of American jihadis and unquestionable ties to al-Qaeda, particularly its alliance with AQAP, we must face the reality that Al-Shabab is a growing threat to our homeland,” Rep. King said.

But ranking committee member Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, disagreed, saying Al-Shabab had never attacked the United States. “Al-Shabab does not appear to present any danger to this homeland.” He said most of the Americans who had joined the group would be identified and arrested upon their return.

Most of the Americans? What about the ones that can't be identified? Do they not count Rep Thompson?

Also Ahmed Hussen, president of the Canadian Somali Congress, testified Canada not refuting extremist ideologies

A U.S. Congressional committee on terrorist recruitment of American Muslims turned its attention north on Wednesday, as a prominent Somali-Canadian leader testified that Ottawa had failed to tackle the ideology of extremists.

Ahmed Hussen, president of the Canadian Somali Congress, told U.S. lawmakers that the Canadian government was concentrating on detecting and arresting terror suspects while leaving their rhetoric unchallenged.

“The strategy of Canadian officials as they confront this phenomenon in my community has been to view this serious matter only through the prism of law enforcement,” he said. “There has not been a parallel attempt to counter the toxic anti-Western narrative that creates a culture of victimhood in the minds of members of our community.”

I suppose Rep Thompson disagreed with Ahmed Hussen too.
