Who is Umar Abdulmutallab? Muslim Charged in Northwest Airline Terrorist Attack; More Red Flags & Myth Debunking on Islamic Terror; Father Warned US

By Debbie Schlussel

****  SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE:  Terrorist’s Father Warned US About Son  ****

While I was away observing the Jewish Sabbath, news broke that a Muslim Nigerian attempted to bomb a Detroit-bound Northwest Airline (now Delta)  flight from Europe, Flight 253.  Apparently the liquid and powder bomb he had strapped to his leg blew up and his lap caught on fire . . . which, if you ask me, is poetic justice.

New just broke that Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was charged in a federal criminal complaint for the attempted Islamic terrorist attack.  READ THE FEDERAL CRIMINAL COMPLAINT, just publicly filed in Detroit (at the Federal Court for the Eastern District of Michigan) within the last hour or so.  I’m glad to see that the Federal Judge presiding over this case is the always wise Judge Paul D. Borman, who–as I’ve reported on this site–takes no BS from Islamic terrorists and their supporters.

Also note, though, that the Assistant U.S. Attorneys on this case are Eric M. Straus (known for having a dartboard in his office with the picture of the FBI Detroit’s top terrorism intelligence agent, Paul George, on it) and Jonathan Tukel, who wantonly outed the name of a terrorism confidential informant to the Detroit Free Press and other news sources, in an attempt to get revenge on a rival. The informant was my client, and, as I noted, I believe he’s dead because of the outrageous conduct of Tukel, giving out his name.  These two lawyers are total sleazebags, so good luck, America.

alhajumarumutallab

Alhaji Umaru Mutallab: Father of Northwest Flight 253 Terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab & Former CEO of First Bank of Nigeria, Nigerian Govt. Minister

Abdulmutallab–from a prominent, wealthy, religious Muslim Nigerian family–was recruited to become a jihadist, not in his native Nigeria, but in Great Britain, where he spent three years as a student at University College London.  It’s yet another reason why the Visa Waiver program (granting certain designated Western countries an exemption from the usually more stringent visa process to travel to the U.S.) is a huge mistake.  We know Muslims come to the U.S. from various assorted Western Visa Waiver countries, and even though Abdulmutallab did not, he was recruited and radicalized in a Visa Waiver Country, Britain, where British nationals are also recruited for Islamic terrorism.

We gave Abdulmutallab a two-year visa to come to the U.S.  Yup, there is simply no decent background checking when it comes to Muslims seeking U.S. visas. We just rubber stamp them and say, “Come on over.”

Abdulmutallab later went to Yemen, where he was further radicalized.  So, ain’t it great, that we are releasing so many Gitmo terrorists there, so they can get trained to do it again, just as he was likely trained there?

This incident is also yet another weight on the overwhelming evidence refuting the still often uttered claim that Muslims are driven to terrorism because they are poor or do not have economic and educational opportunities.  Not only was he studying in London, but his father, Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, is a wealthy, prominent Nigerian banker, who is the immediate past chairman of the First Bank of Nigeria and a former Nigerian government minister.  But as indicated by the “Alhaji” prefix on his fathers name, the elder Mutallab was apparently a religious Muslim, who went on the hajj to Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

It also brings into question the policy of banning liquids in excess of 3-ounce containers in a quart bag, since this man–though his attempt failed–was able to get liquid aboard the flight, undetected, and to make explosives.   (He boarded in Amsterdam, where presumably there are TSA agents checking flights to the U.S., and if there aren’t, why?)  While you and I must throw out a tube of toothpaste that barely contains any toothpaste if the size of the tube exceeds 3 ounces, this guy was able to bring a liquid bomb aboard an American-bound flight. If we simply profiled Muslims, Arabs, and other suspicious people, as the Israelis do, he likely wouldn’t have gotten aboard the flight.

Additionally, as I’ve said over and over again, no-fly lists are largely useless, because Islamic terrorists will always recruit someone without a past that would put him/her on the list.  This man, Abdulmutallab, was not on the no-fly list.  But he was on the terror watch list, which shows you how useless and inaccurate the no-fly list is.

And, like I said, here’s the best part of it, below.  We, Americans and Westerners, of  course, are humane and the flames igniting his crotch were doused.  If this were the Islamic world, or Muslims had set a Westerner’s crotch on fire, he’d be burned to bits:

Stephanie van Herk, a passenger from the Netherlands who was in seat 18B, said the plane had lowered its landing gear when she heard a loud bang. At first she thought the plane might have blown a tire, she said, but then she saw flames leap from the lap of a man in the row behind her in the window seat 19A. “It was higher than the seat,” said Ms. van Herk, 22 years old.

“Then everyone started screaming,” she said. “It was panic.” Flight attendants shouted “What are you doing? What are you doing?” They called for water, and the man began pulling down his burning pants, said Ms. van Herk. She and other passengers got water from the galley and the man was doused.

On Saturday, a Dutch passenger who first subdued the terror told CNN that he jumped over several seats and “acted without hesitation” as soon as he saw smoke and fire.

In the televised interview, the passenger, identified on screen as Jasper Schuringa, said that when he reached the suspect, there was “some kind of object that was already melting and smoking” near the seat. “I was screaming for water, water.” Mr. Schuringa added that he believed the suspect “was trying to blow up the plane.”

Don’t worry, though. American taxpayers are already being soaked for his healthcare needs, which–I assure you–are above and beyond what anyone would get through ObamaCare. His burned crotch and other extremities are being treated at the University of Michigan Medical Center, one of the best hospitals in the world.

Your tax dollars at work.

****  UPDATE:  Abdulmutallab’s father Alhaji Umaru Mutallab claims he warned the U.S. Embassy that his son was radicalized and dangerous. Given that, why the heck wasn’t this guy on the no-fly list, and why the heck was he given a two-year visa to come here?  Sadly, he isn’t the first and won’t be the last.  Like I always say, America is Desperate But NOT Serious in the war against Islamic terrorism.  And, hey, aren’t you glad the INS was reorganized and the Department of Homeland Security created to solve this problem?  HA.

Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, the father of the suspect, warned U.S. officials at the American embassy in Lagos, Nigeria, in recent weeks that he feared his son had been “radicalized” during his trips outside the West African country, according to a senior U.S. official briefed on the exchange.

Mr. Mutallab’s concerns about his son weren’t specific nor did they point to any imminent threat against the U.S., according to the official. But the State Department did share the father’s views with officials from the U.S. government’s intelligence and counterterrorism bureaus, according to the official.

Mr. Mutallab is a prominent Nigerian banker and a highly respected leader in the nation’s banking and business community. He retired this month from his position as chairman of First Bank of Nigeria PLC after 13 years on the board. The retirement announcement was made on his 70th birthday.

Under Mr. Mutallab, the bank expanded to nine subsidiaries in Nigeria and added a bank in the U.K., known as FBN Bank Ltd., as well as a branch in Paris and offices in South Africa and China. He is from Katsina Town, Katsina State, a mostly Muslim state in northern Nigeria, on the border of Niger.

According to a report in the Nigerian newspaper This Day Mr. Abudulmutallab attended the British International School in Lome, Togo. Students called him “Alfa,” a local name for an Islamic scholar, the newspaper reported. . . .

While in London, it appears that Mr. Abdulmutallab lived in comfort. Public-records database 192.com indicates that an “Umar Mutallab” lived at an address in the upscale Marleybone section of London, in a luxury building on a quiet street.

Its ironic that while the Nigerians used their army to suppress a radical Islamic sect this summer, the West cannot even keep a Muslim terrorist from boarding with a nitroglycerin-like substance sewed to his crotch from boarding one of its planes. We not only pay to radicalize them, we give them visas to come here to blow themselves up and when they fail, we show them a kindness they would never get back home. Mullatab is lucky to be in a US hospital; in his native Nigeria, he would have been shot dead.

One more reason we’re losing on the war against Islam and its spreading terror throughout the civilized world.

NormanF on December 26, 2009 at 8:10 pm

    It is amazing that after all of these years, the U.S. government still does not take the threat of terrorism seriously.

    sorrow01 on December 26, 2009 at 8:40 pm

So he’s being treated at the U of M Medical Center? That’s the school that led the affirmative action fight to admit unqualified applicants instead of qualified ones. I guess it’s consistent for the hospital to treat unqualified (I know it’s an understatement) patients instead of qualified ones.

He’s from a wealthy family. Not only does this reaffirm that poverty is not an explanation for this barbaric behavior, but it gives the lie to those liberals who say that when a barbaric country’s economy improves it automatically tends towards Western values. Yeah, just like these Nigerians did.

Finally, although the state-controlled media didn’t try to directly humanize this monster — ata least not in the articles etc. that I read–, they did try to do this indirectly. The AP ran a photo of some distraught passengers, and of course they were obviously Muslim. Yessir, even though a Muslim tried to bomb the flight, there were many Muslims just like us who were inconvenienced, and were just normal folks like the rest of us.

Little Al on December 26, 2009 at 8:31 pm

Littleal – correct. The 9/11 terrorists all came from well-off families. The Bin Ladens are wealthy. Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with poverty or “root causes” but everything to do with belief in a radical Islamic ideology. As for humanizing the monster, give the state-run media time – they’ve done everything in reporting this incident except to mention Islam. They won’t ever mention what motivates them to kill us – the fact they hate us infidels and our way of life. And no… they are far from being “normal folks like the rest of us.”

NormanF on December 26, 2009 at 8:41 pm

Littleal – one caveat – these people are not being radicalized back at home. They are being radicalized in the West by Westerners who hate their own societies. In a way, they are taking the West’s self-loathing to heart… you must imagine that if they hear nothing is good about the country they come to study in from the brightest minds who live in it, does it not deserve to be destroyed? A good deal of the problem we have are home-grown radicals who infect impressionable foreign minds with the twisted view that their own country is evil and deserves whatever happens to it. We are reaping the fruits of our own contempt for our Western heritage.

NormanF on December 26, 2009 at 8:48 pm

I think it’s both; certainly they’re radicalized in Europe, no doubt about it, but surveys in all the Muslim countries show the sweeping anti-Semitism and anti-Western feeling that is so pervasive in all these countries even when European or Western influence is absent. The Muslim ‘schools’ in countries like Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc. ad nauseum.

While the West’s lack of focus and direction, and the PC denigration of the West are certainly factors, they aren’t the only factors. As a comparison, the Muslims hated Israel, long before the PC currents started to dominate Israel (although of course there was PC in Israel too, at least back to the 20s, but it wasn’t as widespread as it is today). They didn’t riot in the 20s and 30s against Israel because of any Israeli’s self-loathing.

And a hoax like global warming is the main “issue” in the West today; ironic that all the magazines had covers about Copenhagen just when all the dishonest emails were exposed.

Little Al on December 26, 2009 at 8:56 pm

Media calls him a “Nigerian”

Tainting the whole country! How insensitive these leftists are!

Bob S. on December 26, 2009 at 9:18 pm

Bob… half of Nigerians are Christian, in the southern states. To just call him a Nigerian and omit his religion, leaves out his motivation for the attack.

NormanF on December 26, 2009 at 9:23 pm

    You have no idea about “his motivation for the attack”. You’ve just watched the TV news, same as me.

    European and proud of it on December 27, 2009 at 12:53 pm

A Nigerian bank emailed me a few hundred times saying they had several millions waiting for me? Is that the bank his father ran?

Bob S. on December 26, 2009 at 9:29 pm

I find it interesting that this took place just a week or so after Debbie reported a couple of “dry runs” on other flights. It looks like the terrorists are getting serious. I wish we were.

White Rook on December 26, 2009 at 9:35 pm

NormanF

I know. And I’ve also read of the many battles and dead in the streets with Muslims attacking and killing Christians there and reoccurring constantly.

Bob S. on December 26, 2009 at 9:37 pm

Like the shoe bomber, another failed attempt that might end up with passengers having to drop their pants for inspection prior to boarding a plane. But if the PC crowd are allowed to continue to run things, Muslims would be exempt from such inspections. And can we consider this act of terrorism another on Obama’s watch? And geez, another peace loving Muslim up to no good. See what happens when the President of the United States bows to the Muslim Saudi King. That really worked out didn’t it. And hows that change coming?

foxmuldar on December 26, 2009 at 10:03 pm

Funny…it is still referred to as “The visa waiver PILOT program”.

#1 Vato on December 26, 2009 at 10:04 pm

Debbie lets not jump to conclusions. Believe me it wasn’t a terrorist act. He might have had PTSD?

CaliforniaScreaming on December 26, 2009 at 10:17 pm

How many times since O-cowardly took office have the muslims attemped to attack or practiced an attack on the U.S.?

Jarhead on December 26, 2009 at 10:55 pm

WOW! Turns out my comments about having to drop your pants prior to boarding a flight now seems even more likely. It turns out that the potential suicide bomber was wearing Special Suicide Underwear.

This guys Jockey short were loaded with explosives.

foxmuldar on December 26, 2009 at 10:56 pm

Only question I would ask the Jihadist whacko, is how he was going to screw all those 70 virgins without a penis. LOL

foxmuldar on December 26, 2009 at 10:58 pm

    Same way you’d ask him the question without a brain.

    European and proud of it on December 27, 2009 at 12:58 pm

Is it a coincidence that this man is of Dutch origin? Could he have been listening to Geert Wilders?

Charmaine on December 26, 2009 at 11:00 pm

I was going to make some comment using my warped sense of humor and say something like “Debbie, stop lying, you know Jasper Schuringa wasn’t even on the plane …”. However I have some serious things to say.

First of all, someone told me this evening that the US is not allowed to board Air Marshals out of Amsterdam’s airport (The airport this flight originated from). If so, that had better change fast.

However, my final point is even more critical. I smell something fishy here. I felt the same thing regarding the shoe bomber (Richard Reid), and it may even apply to the failed attempts to drive cars with bombs into airports in England.

Al Queda is simply too good for these botched jobs. In my opinion these failures had to have been on purpose. Why? I cannot think of many good reasons, but just because I personally can’t come up with many doesn’t mean there aren’t any. One possibility I have thought of is to penetrate the prison system.

I_AM_ME on December 26, 2009 at 11:23 pm

    Fail on purpose? Why not!?

    The point is to terrorize. If there are not a lot of deaths, there will be little retribution but life in the states is affected. afternoon tv shows our pres having multiple security reports. terror is achieved. we all squirm. they have little accountability since they sacrificed a lamb like Umar.

    Pretty slick, don’t you think?

    JoJoMoMo on January 8, 2010 at 3:17 pm

The other angle you didn’t pick up on is that the father is really no different from the son in their goal to Islamize the world. The father is not just any banker but a major pusher of Islamic banking, i.e., he is a Jihadist, too, but his weapon of choice is money instead of terrorism.

Abu Abdullah on December 26, 2009 at 11:25 pm

    [Abu Abdullah - ... The father is not just any banker but a major pusher of Islamic banking, i.e., he is a Jihadist, too, but his weapon of choice is money instead of terrorism.]

    In order to be Sharia Complaint, those institutions offering Islamic banking (and all the others) must donate a certain amount to an approved group of “charities”. Many of those charities are terrorist front groups (and the people who approve the groups for eligibility know exactly who they are).

    I_AM_ME on December 27, 2009 at 12:08 am

Charmaine, Umar Abdulmutallab wasn’t of Dutch origin. The flight was. His origin is Nigerian, from the muslim north.

Quasar on December 26, 2009 at 11:36 pm

First of all thank GOD the whole thing did not turn into a disaster. Second, I agree in someways with I_AM_ME. Third the terror organizations are testing our security and they succeeded so far. Last, all what has been happening lately is in preparation for a major terror act and of course GOD forbid if our security system start acting like the Israeli do.

Daniel. on December 27, 2009 at 12:16 am

In my college days back in Boston, I encountered many Nigerian students. These guys were first rate partiers, absolutely loaded with money, living in the swankiest buildings. They dressed only top-of-the-line, drove only super luxury cars. I’m absolutely certain this guy was thus privileged, but I guess he was searching for something more “meaningful” than the high life.

adam on December 27, 2009 at 12:33 am

I want to thank you Debbie this time around for waiting a tad and writing and giving opinions starting from a basis of known facts and reasonable inductions and deductions. You put yourself in hot water last time around grabbing and taking off and running with the Petrunas hyperbole from the last incident instead of waiting awhile for more more info.

So once again, thank you!

Not only am I pissed about this incident in general but also some other informations has come to bear that pisses me off even more about this latest incident:

1. Folks over at FreeRepublic and other “so-called” conservative sites keep lamenting, “If Israeli security had been assigned to the airport in question, this wouldn’t have happened.”

What these conservative don’t seem to know is that Israeli security is in place…somehow they let someone else assist on getting the perp onboard WITHOUT a passport.

2. Homeland Security was notifed 6 months back by the father…other investigating agencies in Europe and the US were already adding additional investigative finding about the perp in question since…yet when the manifest was sent to Homeland Security before the flight – it was cleared.

3. And now, Homeland Security has the gall to enforce new rules that say everyone has to be belted into their seats a full hour before landing approach – which is the period in time in which a perp will try something like this again – takeoff being another period.

So what happens to the next hero(s)? Arrest and felony charges for getting out of a seat to stop the next perp who attempts to blow up, hijack or set afire an airliner?

Geesh…can’t wait for the answer to that question…

Thanks again…

Lets hope that the fire in his lap destroyed his genitals so he doesn’t contaminate the world with more of his offspring.

I’m just shocked that B.O. didn’t cut his vacation short in Hawaii(sarcasm, eye roll). I guess after all the hard work in passing that bill he was tired and wanted to visit some old homies.

This is the only place I have found such detail of the prosecution and their backgrounds. That’s why I love this site. Focus focus focus. Always keeps her eye on the ball.

Joe on December 27, 2009 at 1:24 am

    Joe – since this terrorist only succeeded in burning his package and he did not die, the passengers should have forcefully presented him with a Darwin Award.

    Jarhead on December 27, 2009 at 12:00 pm

Another note about the U OF M. The organ transplant program gives prisoners the same consideration for donations as a law abiding citizen. It’s conceivable that this terrorist will be given the donated skin from some American citizen to heal him up with. I was made aware of this after seeing a prisoner who cut the head off an old woman after hours of torture get cornea, retina transplants. His sight was restored. Makes you feel just super doesn’t it??? I choose not to donate and have written the board a letter. Un believable.

Joe on December 27, 2009 at 1:29 am

Speaking from first hand experience, the screening in Amsterdam is a joke. I am a US government contractor (the bad guys in the eyes of europeans and some Americans) and routinely fly through Schiphol Airport. I can tell you that if you are an American passport holder that has traveled or worked in Iraq or Afghanistan, then you will be grilled by the authorities at Schiphol Airport before being allowed to board your flight to the US, while other clearly non-US passengers are given a “cursory” check. It is so bad that the term “Schiphol Gestapo” is what we call those poeple. I have been held back from passing through to the waiting area for more than 15 minutes more than a few of times after being passed off from one agent to another. Basically, what they do is ask you a bunch of detailed questions and get your answers and then have the next agent ask the same questions and so on, looking for inconsistancies. G_d forbid one of them writes down something different than what you said and that triggers a whole new round of agents and questions due to no fault of your own. I know what to expect and they ask the same kinds of questions and I answer the same way every time but all you need is for one agent to “accidently” hear something different and the next thing you know you are taken aside and grilled by their superior, all the while people that I would grill go through their “interogation” in as few as a couple of minutes! They very clearly go out of their way to make you uncomfortable in the manner in which they question you, you as being an American ME contractor. I understnad the reason for this but at the same time, it should be enforced for all. Maybe now it will but I have the feeling that the powers that be will go to extreme measures so as to not offend those that need a more careful looking into, ie. muslims. It is not American contractors trying to take down airplanes, right?

Sorry for the rant but I had to get this off my chest. I feel safer on the ground in Iraq and Afghanistan than I usually do when flying home to see my family. When this last incident happed it drove the point home even more. The terrorist that tries this on my plane and I have the ability to do something about it will not fare as well as this last did. I will beat the living you know what out of him. Hopefully, I won’t be put on trial for it but he will not be walking off that plane on his own that is for darned sure.

By the way, I do not fly through Schiphol anymore and take a straight flight from Dubai to the US. I don’t visit europe and have no plans to in the future. As far as I am concerned, they are not our friends anymore and probably never will be again as their muslim population increases and takes over.

US Government Contractor on December 27, 2009 at 1:33 am

    I’m sure Europe will miss you so much. If you feel so much safer on the ground in Iraq or Afghanistan then you do going home the solution’s easy: stay in Iraq or Afghanistan with the mess you guys have created. But no, easier to take your profits, zip off home and leave the wicked Europeans to fight and die in these places on behalf of the corrupt stooges you’ve installed. I like most Americans, but I’ll make an exception for you.

    And as for your fantasies of what you’d do if you were on a flight with a bomber? Puh-lease. You’d crap yourself while running to the toilet.

    European and proud of it on December 27, 2009 at 12:48 pm

Exactly, why Detroit?
I hope, Americans rise up and insist on profiling, now.Everyone should NOT have to drop their pants.
We should, also, get on top of this and the other passengers should sue this perp, and the government agencies that were responsible and negligent.It was reported he conned the people at Amsterdam to let him on without a passport, claiming he was a poor Sudanese.This is a Hate crime pure and simply, and if the new Hate Crimes Law can be used against this Muslim, to bring out the Truth of this religious tenet of jihad, it should be used and tested, immediately.Debbie, could you please, comment on this?

CSG on December 27, 2009 at 6:08 am

Debbie asks: “(He boarded in Amsterdam, where presumably there are TSA agents checking flights to the U.S., and if there aren’t, why?) ”

Good question . . .FinancialTimes http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/e1e8fd44-f1da-11de-bcfc-00144feab49a.html?nclick_check=1 reveals:

“He did not go through passport control,” a Dutch military police spokesman said.

4 simple words to deter midair bomb plots….”SEARCH ALL MUSLIM MALES.” PC–political correctness–is total BS.

MUSLIM TERRORIST UMAR FAROUK ABDUL MUTALLAB HAD A “MOTHER OF SATAN” BOMB 0N NORTHWEST FLIGHT 253, SEE FBI REPORT AND HIS FACEBOOK PAGE. http://pibillwarner.wordpress.com/2009/12/26/muslim-terrorist-umar-farouk-abdul-mutallab-had-a-mother-of-satan-bomb-0n-northwest-flight-253-see-fbi-report-and-his-facebook-page/

I got an email from his father (or some other Nigerian Banker)just yeaterday saying that if I sent him 1000.00 he would send me a million dollar check!LOL

When are we going to get like Israel and keep Muslims in check. I say pull down their pants and look up thier butt with a flashlight if needed. Our political correctness is going to kill us all…

Well t least I have the extreme pleasure of paying for his skin grafts, feeding,clothing and guarding him for about 20 years. I am sure thats all he will get, you know since his defense wil be that he is so young…

Let me do the anestisia for the skin graft…He might not make it through the operstion..

DUSTY on December 27, 2009 at 9:49 am

I read an ABC.COM story on this bomber and never once did they mention Muslim or Islam in the article.

Dennis D on December 27, 2009 at 11:16 am

I agree that media finds it interesting he is from a wealthy family when BinLaden himself came from wealth. Why the shock?

Dennis D on December 27, 2009 at 11:23 am

Nigerian Banker lol? Haven’t we all received emails from some Nigerian ” Bank” at some point?

Dennis D on December 27, 2009 at 11:25 am

If our current DHS doesn’t aggressively enhance our security measures, we are all screwed. It is only a matter of time before the terrorists are successful with a different technique to blow up a plane. Profile all middle eastern people at airports and let the PC libs be damned.

A new security measure should be put into place where none of these muzzie woman can wear their ninja gear when traveling in or out of the U.S. All of them, men and women, should be subjected to additional screening and pat downs. Also, before boarding, these muzzies should be given a code of conduct pamphlet letting them know if they behave in any way questionable they will be detained and thrown off of the flight. If in flight, they will be restrained and hopefully hog-tied.

Jarhead on December 27, 2009 at 11:55 am

There’s a report that an Israeli company runs security at Schipol. But its useless without being able to profile Muslim men and women. And if someone can board a flight without going through passport control, that means they can smuggle explosives abroad without being detected. The incident has revealed there are lots of loopholes both in Europe and here for Islamic terrorists to exploit. We just happened to be lucky the explosives malfunctioned this time.

NormanF on December 27, 2009 at 12:30 pm

It might not matter who runs security at Schipol. The last time I changed planes when flying internationally was 10 years ago in Argentina (my flight originated in Uruguay and I was connecting to another flight on the same airline – United) in Beuonos Aries to Chicago. I only had to go through a metal detector and that was it. No one screened me. Admittedly this was prior to 9/11, but I wonder what kind of security does someone connecting through through Schipol go through now?

I_AM_ME on December 27, 2009 at 1:53 pm

Do you understand that if you start profiling people from the Middle East that a lot of us Christians will get caught in the middle? Do you understand that not ALL people from the Middle East and not ALL Muslims think the way this man does? As a Christian from this region I already have a hard enough time in my own country, let alone when I’m in an airport in Europe or the US. Please don’t make it worse for us who have NOTHING to do with any of this by calling for these outlandish precautions.

A Christian from the Middle East on December 27, 2009 at 2:54 pm

    A Christian from the Middle East

    outlandish precautions = less dead Americans.

    Too bad you live in the middle east. Americans must look out for America’s interests, and the rest of the world be damned. We need to look out for ourselves now that islam is infesting too many Anglo / Saxon countries.

    Jarhead on December 27, 2009 at 4:44 pm

      One more thing:

      outlandish precautions = more dead muzzies

      Jarhead on December 27, 2009 at 5:01 pm

The government is charged with keeping us safe and they seem bent on forcing substandard health care on us instead. All the libtards were doing all year is trying to put together a royal suckola healthcare bill while the muzzies were conducting dry runs. Can we act surprised when a regular civilian from Europe gets some balls and becomes the only thing between a disaster and life? The libs should be charged with negligence and slammed in prisons.

Joe on December 28, 2009 at 12:40 am

muslims are going to take over the world. In india too they dont follow the indian govt rules, they have > 10 kids so that they can increase population, they are growing 10 times more faster.. stop this religion from spreading, they are creating a lot of terror, if they are sane they should convert to be an atheist.

The Outside World should come and help Nigerian Christians mostly from South as the North Muslim Nigerians are using the Nigeria Army headed by Muslim North Solders to suppress them as they are being killed every day at the slightest provocation. The Muslim North in Nigeria is using the resources from the Christian South to empower their people by putting them at the helm of affairs in Nigeria under the watch of Nigeria Muslim dominated military.

Nigeria is not a Muslim country but the Muslim North is using the advantage they have in Government to make Nigeria look like a Muslim Nation. No matter how they try to increase their population by marrying many wives and given birth to so many children, the Christians will subdue them any time any day because our religion is for peace and unity.. No nation can conquer Israel no matter how powerful and Big.

In Nigeria, the South Christian dominated part are considered to be in love with any country associated with Israel like the Americans by North Dominated Muslims in Nigeria, therefore, seen to be their enemies irrespective of the fact that they are under one nation courtesy of the OIL from the Southern part. The Muslim North is drawing Nigeria close to Arab world if not why should a Nigeria president from Muslim North travel to Saudi Arabia for medical treatment for more than three months thereby investing in Saudi economy at the detriment of other Nigerians.

If the West [Europeans] allow themselves to be used by Muslims to cause harm to God Loving and Peace nations like America and the rest, God will never be happy with them so therefore they should be wary of their Muslim increasing population and Muslims from other part of the World who finds it conducive to plan evil act in European soil against nations considered to be Christian nations that advocates for Peace for all.

Daddy Mutallab is really no dnrfefeit from the son, since daddy is into Jihad, too, only that it is money Jihad in the guise of Islamic banking instead of physical Jihad. I would worry more about Daddy Mutallab’s soft Jihad than junior’s failed attempt at going down in a blaze of Islamic glory.
