You know the 11 missing Egyptian Muslim “students” who never showed up at Montana State University?
While some of them have been found, Safa Pizza–the Maryland pizza shop where two of them showed up as “employees“–should be a place of interest to federal counterterrorism investigators . . . if it isn’t already.
Ditto for its owner, Egyptian Attia Gouda, who was harboring these missing aliens in his Baltimore area apartment. Why isn’t ICE arresting him? And why won’t the Baltimore Sun name his pizza shop in their article on the 2 students? Attention, reporters: It’s Safa Pizza a/k/a Safa’s Pizza.
Last October, when officials closed down the Baltimore Fort McHenry and Harbor Tunnels because of an alleged terror plot to blow it up, they arrested several men in connection with the alleged plot on immigration violations. Some of them had maps of the tunnels, etc. Guess where they arrested two of them? Safa Pizza. From a Baltimore Sun account:
Suied Mohamad-Ahamad, 25, and Mohamed Ahmed Mohamady Ismail, 30, both Egyptians, were taken into custody at Safa’s Pizza on Merritt Avenue in Dundalk.
The men may have been working there (other Tunnel plot suspects were working at other Muslim-owned businesses). And now the missing Egyptian “students” were found working there. Here’s more on the absurd story of 9/10 behavior by the Feds from the Baltimore Sun:
Federal agents arrested El Sayed Ahmed Elsayed Ibrahim, 20, and Alaa Abd El Fattah Ali El Bahnasawi, 20, in the Holabird Avenue apartment of a pizza shop owner from Egypt, Attia Gouda. Ibrahim and El Bahnasawi were being held in an undisclosed location, pending possible deportation proceedings, authorities said. . . .
According to Gouda’s wife, Jennifer Evans, Ibrahim and El Bahnasawi apparently stayed with her husband for several days while she was on vacation this week. When she returned Wednesday, she said, her husband introduced them to her as friends from his native village of Mansoura, Egypt. . . .
“These guys would not hurt a fly,” said Evans. “They’re very shy. They respected me very much in the house.”
BFD. Potential terrorists usually respect the stupid Infidel wife of the man who harbors them while they are here illegally doing who knows what.
At his pizza shop in Glen Burnie last evening, a visibly agitated Gouda expressed dismay at the attention that the Egyptians’ failure to appear in Montana was stirring up. He worried that Americans jump to conclusions “too quickly.”
Uh, too quickly? More like, not quickly enough.
Gouda described Ibrahim and El Bahnasawi as farmers who had gotten “lost” and overwhelmed in a foreign land. But it was their dream to come to America, he said. “They’re good people.”
The Dundalk arrest took place at the second floor apartment on the 7200 block of Holabird Ave., a brick rowhouse on a busy thoroughfare. A window on the first floor is smashed, but neighbors said the first-floor apartment is vacant and that the window had been broken for a while.
Before rushing out of the apartment yesterday afternoon on her way to work, Evans said the two students had been helping out at her husband’s pizza shop but that she believed they had come to the country with the intention to study. When she asked one of the men why he had come to the United States, he replied in halting English, “I want to better my future,” she said.
What a fricking fool this woman is.
Evans said she and her husband were not knowingly helping the students violate the terms of their visas. “We had no idea about any of this.”
Uh-huh. And if you believe that, I have some land in the Baltimore Tunnel to sell you.
Since ICE Chieftess Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess” says she’s serious about arresting workplace immigration offenders, why is she not arresting Attia Gouda and shutting down Safa Pizza? Is it just a little too un-PC for her to do such a thing to Muslims? Just asking.
Incredibly, ICE spokesman Dean Boyd doesn’t think there’s a problem at the mysterious Safa Pizza shop. He claims “we have no indication they pose any threat,” regarding the students. Yet, they just so happened to show up at a pizza shop with strange ties to alleged terror plots. A shop whose owner employs and harbors illegal aliens on the lam. No threat. Ri-i-i-i-i-i-ight.
Next time you order extra cheese or sauce, make sure you’re not ordering from a place that employs illegal alien Muslim “students” and has ties to tunnel-bombing plots.
Thanks to reader Rona, who asks
Think about it, why would some foreign students want to work in a pizza shop instead of going to college?
It was reported that these two Egyptians are from rural backgrounds and felt uncomfortable heading to Montana. Well Montana (which I have been to) is a heck of a lot more rural than Dundalk, MD- which is near the former General Motors Plant and Bethlehem Steel. Dundalk is a blue collar enclave. The only thing country here is the music playing out of the jukebox. . . .
In the end, probably nothing will happen to any of these students…..They will get deported and try another scheme.
Sad to say, Rona is probably right. And it’s not a sure bet they will even be deported, given the lackadaisical way ICE is treating the missing students case.
