Jordanian (Translation: Palestinian) MUSLIM Charged in Threat to Chicago Jewish School; FLASHBACK: Schlussel Previously Identified Mohammed Alkaramla; Suspect Writes Schlussel
By Debbie Schlussel
You heard it here, back in February, when P.I. Bill Warner identified–before all the mainstream media and everyone else–Mohammed Alkaramla as the name of the man whose home the FBI raided in connection with attacks on five Jewish schools and synagogues–including reader David’s synagogue–in Chicago. (Thanks to Bill Warner, who first identified the man).
Today, Alkaramla, a Muslim alien from Jordan (which means he’s Palestinian), was charged with threats to a Jewish school, the school of which my little sister is a graduate. He was arrested by agents from the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, not its civil rights and hate crimes division, which should be a hint that this guy ain’t small potatoes and that the Bureau believes he’s a terrorist. He has dual U.S. and Jordanian citizenship.
This should be a warning to all those who think, “Well, my Muslim neighbor is so nice. My Muslim friend says he wants peace.”
Alkaramla’s neighbors said this kind of thing when his home was being raided. And, the chutzpahdik Mohammed Alkaramla made this comment on my site:
i am mohammed alkaramia was targeted from the FBI on the Feb. 12. 2009 after 8 hours of search my house and got out with computers and VHS tapes, has nothing to do of what they looking for .
i would never do any thing like that or even think about it, i think the FBI wanted to point at some one and didnt know who to point at, i wish they will find who did this to jews and i always wish for the middle east the peace between isreal and palstine
over all we all Humman being we must be treated the same .
Well, your wish was granted. They found him all right. This “peace”ful man who utters the same non-violent baloney as most American Muslims do. It’s all a fraud.
A 25-year-old Jordanian national from the Far North Side was arrested and charged this morning with mailing a threatening letter to a Jewish school in response to the Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip, according to the FBI.
At a morning federal court appearance, Mohammed Alkaramla was ordered held pending a hearing Tuesday morning.
If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison, said Assistant U.S. Atty. Robert Milan. He described Alkaramla as a flight risk, noting his Jordanian citizenship.
Neighbors on Alkaramla’s block said that about eight FBI agents came to the house around 6:00 this morning to arrest the man.
Eli Azzo, a neighbor and relative of Alkaramla’s landlord, said he was surprised to find hear the man was accused of a hate crime.
“He doesn’t talk politics or religion, he’s a real quiet guy,” Azzo said. “I never gauged him that way as that kind of person.”
Of course, not. They’re not stupid. They don’t tell us they’re terrorists and they’re gonna do this. They pretend to be more “peaceful” than ’60s hippies and use their rhetoric.
In court, Alkarmla’s attorney, Phil Bernstein [DS: They hate the Jews, but love those Jewish lawyers], said his client had recently graduated from the Illinois Institute of Technology and had not been in any trouble with the law before.
Big deal. Same for Mohammed Atta before 9/11.
Bernstein said his client has strong ties to the community.
“It’s a shock to his family and a shock to everybody who knows him,” Bernstein said. “There’s no indication he harbors any ill will toward anyone of any particular ethnicity or nationality in the city.”
Yeah, no ill will except his death threats.
Alkarmla is the same man interviewed by federal authorities Feb. 12 when they searched his West Rogers Park apartment in the 6000 block of North Artesian Avenue for evidence related to the vandalism of several synagogues and Jewish schools in Chicago and Lincolnwood.
Those incidents occurred on Jan. 10 in the wake of the Israeli airstrikes and troop incursions in the Gaza Strip.
But the FBI said this morning that he was only arrested in connection with a threatening letter sent to the Ida Crown Jewish Academy, 2828 W. Pratt Blvd., on New Year’s Eve.
Yeah, that’s because it’s the incredibly incompetent and pan-Islamist FBI, who can’t and is too lazy and PC to prove the other crimes. But you just know that this Alkaramla fraud did ‘em.
On the day federal authorities executed the search warrant at the apartment, Rabbi Leonard Matanky, dean of Ida Crown, told the Tribune that the school received a bomb threat Dec. 31.
Sources said Alkaramla lived in New York before moving to West Rogers Park about a half dozen years ago.
After the search had been completed and authorities had left on Feb. 12, Alkaramla identified himself and told reporters that he was the target of the investigation.
Now, how would he know that, unless he knew he did it and not his wife and father, who live there also?
He denied wrongdoing and said he had been singled out by authorities because he is Muslim.
No, because he’s a violent Muslim who sent death threats to Jews.
When asked why authorities would target him in particular, he said he had asked investigators the same question.
“I’m too busy studying and working to commit [hate crimes],” he said. He indicated that he was attending school to be an engineer.
Ah, I guess if you are an engineer, you can’t be a terrorist? Tell it to dead Palestinian terrorist Yahyah Ayash a/k/a “The Engineer” and so many other engineering students and grads who were Islamic terrrorists.
