Is Michigan a Terror Stronghold?
MSNBC/NEWSWEEK ^ | Oct. 20 | Keith Naughton

Oct. 20 With one of the largest populations of Arabs outside the Middle East, Detroit and its surrounding suburbs have become fertile ground for terrorism fund-raising and recruiting. The Detroit/Dearborn area is a major financial support center for many Mideast terrorist groups, according to a Michigan State Police report obtained by NEWSWEEK. Southeast Michigan is known as a lucrative recruiting area and potential support base for international terrorist groups. It is also conceivable that sleeper cells may be located in that area of the state.

One problem law enforcement has is that non-American names have many, many ways to be spelled. Variants in one name can have maybe four or five variations. Take Mohammed. It may be Muhamed, Muhammed, Mohamed, Mouhamed, Mouhammed. And that's only the first name. And names and aliases can be passed around. One guy can get maybe ten different driver's licenses and pass them around. This is a big problem. Remember we rely only certified translations of birth certificates. Well, there could be a dozen certified versions.

Is Michigan a Terror Stronghold?

Here's a happy thought from Middle East expert Daniel Pipes:

    Islamists constitute a small but significant minority of Muslims, perhaps 10 to 15 per cent of the
    population. Many of them are peaceable in appearance, but they all must be considered
    potential killers.

How does 600,000 to 900,000 -- in our country -- potential killers sound?

"Very little in this report has any truth. "

It would be more helpful if you were to explicitly state the things that have no truth rather than a blanket no truth here. What do you find not to have verisimilitude?

Better to have thousands of Arab terrorists come here than to offend a few non terrorist Arabs by not allowing any.

Ten to fifteen percent of Mohammedans worldwide is 100 to 150 MILLION minimum. People in the USA better decide which is more important: political correctness or survival.

Not to mention taking a chance on being perceived as anti-diversity or anti-Moslem. After all, diversity and political correctness are most important. Heck, we even changed the NAME of our war ("infinite justice") because the name hurt the feelings of the enemy.

One way the Dearborn muslim/arabs raise money for jihad orgs is to smuggle illegals, mostly muslims, into the US across the Detroit River. I believe one of these vermin and his Canadian side kick were busted on Oct. 12. There was an article in the Free Press which I sent to M. Savage.

Large quantities of white powder are being made and shipped out of Ada Michigan as you read this. Is the FBI checking if Amway is a terrorist organization? :)

"It would be more helpful if you were to explicitly state the things that have no truth rather than a blanket no truth here. What do you find not to have verisimilitude?"

In "her" mind, there is no fifth column, only paranoid racists believe there is a fifth column, and anyone who dare speak the truth will be shot down in (virtual) flames by the spindoc "lady". Many are intimidated into silence by "her" tactics. Many are not.

The spindoc "lady" finds anything accurate about islamic terrorists and comes down on it like white on rice -- especially if the islamic terrorists in question are in Michigan.

It's uncanny. Either we've got the one person in the country who really believes the "peaceful religion" BS, or else we've got... something else.

Keep your eyes on this one.

(My only question is... naw, I'm not going there.)

Those groups, along with domestic patriot groups in Michigan

This story is nature's way of telling Michigan they need more domestic "patriot groups"

"America's Fifth Column ... watch JIHAD! In America"

Better yet, download it! By downloading it, you'll save the provider's bandwidth, because you'll be able to use the local file to show others, rather than have them view it online on the provider's dime. You'll also be able to ensure that this invaluable resource continues to exist in case the radical islamists succeed in driving it from that provider. I read earlier today that the last provider to carry it online has recently deleted it, even though many people are apparently wanting to view it.

To download with Internet Explorer, right-click on the link, and select "Save Target As..."

Please note that the above link is not the same one you've seen posted in various threads here to view it. You cannot download the RealPlayer format documentary using the normal link. I edited the above link to allow a download.

If you want to post a download link in other threads, use this syntax:

<a href="http://www.ou.org/ftprm/jihad.rm">America's Fifth Column ... download JIHAD! In America</a>

(And remember to pass along the instructions on how to download, and how to type the link!)

"Those groups, along with domestic patriot groups in Michigan, combine to create 374 potential-threat elements statewide, the report says. A State Police spokesman describes such elements as individuals or groups who could engage in acts of terror."

And so it begins...

I'm especially glad that we didn't bomb on their Holy Day (Friday). Also, Ramadan is fast apporaching, we wouldn't want to offend the Peace Loving Muslims by carrying on Operation Offend No One.

"The FBI has investigated the Immams and various organizations that exist in Detroit and they've come up with zip."

Nice try, spindoc "lady". The guy who made that documentary -- currently living on the lam thanks to the fatwas put on him by the "peaceful religion" -- has been approached by the FBI, because they admit that they "come up with zip" because they can't just walk into the mosques -- which is where the terror pow-wows happen. He can, and he has, and now they want to kill him. But, he's gotten information that he's giving to the FBI that they cannot get on their own.

Your "come up with zip" statement is more of your typical spin, spindoc "lady".

If the islamists wanted to pay for a spindoc presence on FreeRepublic, they couldn't do any better than you provide here day in and day out, presumably for free, putatively on your own initiative. I must say that it is very curious to find someone who is apparently an American sitting here posting apologetics for the enemy fifth column on a daily basis.

People need to keep their eye on you.

Yeah, Dearborn has many Arab residents, and according to a good friend who works for Chrysler, many of these Arabs will not, under any circumstances, condemn bin Laden. They actually believe that the Mossad staged the 911 attacks!

I live about 2 miles from the Soo Locks; we had a scare there last week which turned out to be nothing. The same thing happened when a threat to blow up the international bridge was investigated. My advice to Arab terrorists: stay away from Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Most everyone here owns several guns and we won't hesitate to use them on you.

Meanwhile, I'm continuing on with life as it was prior to 911; I've made eight trips to Canada since the attacks, and I refuse to let these bastards keep me from doing what I was doing prior to 911.

I urge everyone else to do the same........

Question for the FBI: My wife and I consider ourselves patriots. We love our country and are proud to be Americans. Does this now make us a threat to national security???? (Uh oh, I'm also an NRA member...)

I've got RealPlayer.

Here's what I'm getting when I click the link. It takes me to this address:

pnm://www.ou.org/ftprm/jihad.rm

Followed by these two graphic links, neither of which takes me to anything called jihad.

What's the address you're getting?

The word Patriot makes you dead meat. Add the words Tax protestor and the IRS/ATF will visit. Talk about Ruby Ridge and your one room shanty will become a compound.

I hear you.

When I click that link, it downloads the .ra file, and then starts up RealPlayer, and runs the file in it.

The .ram file is a tiny text file that contains a pointer to the .ra file, using a pnm:// protocol rather than http:// -- the link I posted is a direct link to the .ra file, but with an http:// protocol, so that you can download it. You might be able to view it by left-clicking on the link I posted, but it sounds like something's corrupted with your RealPlayer installation -- it should automatically launch the app and play the file.

Please remember that the majority of Arab-Americans are Christians. It is not ARAB-AMERICANS per se who are potentially our enemies, but rather MUSLIMS.

Thanks for the low down on this Don. And I agree about the "spin doc" lady. The only time I ever see her post on FR it is to defend Muslims. I also have a hard time believing her story that her husband works or used to work in the terrorist unit of the FBI. Doesn't sound true for obvious reasons. She is a low budget attempt to inject disinformation about Muslim activities on the Internet.

Free scoop, spindoc "lady" -- the meshuggenahs running around in the woods with their beer bellies hanging out of their camo-pants may be nutzo, but they don't fly airplanes into office buildings.

Your pet moslems, on the other hand...

"Mark my words, somebody is coming after the Patriots."

The patriots are currently gunning down your moslem cohorts in Afghanistan from the safety and comfort of their helicopter gunships.

And the patriots in New York are digging the bodies of their countrymen -- crushed to death by your fanatic moslem cohorts -- out of the rubble that fell on 9/11.

Someone is coming after them? I pity the fools.

"a proposal that has the support of many conservatives: closing the borders to stop immigration."

 

What a lying POS.

 

I'm sure he knows damn well that it has nothing to do with any desire to "stop immigration."

 

His apparent inability to differentiate between "immigration" and "illegal immigration" is too absurd to accept.

 

Let's put it in another context (generally a great way to examine "logic", by divorcing it from the current heated context), and see what we get.

 

What would you call someone who railed against people who chose to lock their doors at night, and accused them of wanting to "stop family members from visiting"?

How's that?

 

It'll be six months on the outside that the left demands that we issue them to illegals, just like they've managed to do with drivers licences in some parts of the country.
