Tampa Mystery Muslim Explosion: Was Palestinian Practicing Bomb-Making?

By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE–The Case Gets Even More Interesting ****
Hmmm . . . . So, a Palestinian Muslim alien who uses an alias just so happens to be at a gas station (where he works) in the middle of the night and blows up in an explosion at the Tampa station. Accident . . . or Islamic terrorist whose bomb-making practice went awry?
The FBI is involved in investigating the case of Farid Yusif a/k/a Farid Karakra. And since the ATF is the agency that handles such cases–while the FBI is the lead agency on TERRORISM cases–you do the math.
Thanks to Bill Warner, investigator extraordinaire, for the tip on this very disturbing story:


Farid Karakra a/k/a Farid Yusif: Who Did He Really Mean to Blow Up?

Heavy equipment was brought in to take down an unstable wall and proper up the roof so investigators could get a look inside.

Bill notes:

Gas fires have an explosion value with concussion in a confined area, but not enough to almost knock down a cinder block wall and bring down the roof of a building, the bay doors and glass would be blown out to relieve the pressure. Gasoline is not stored inside the bays of an automotive shop, there are no natural gas lines in the automotive store.

At least Tampa media are asking similar questions, a good step for MSM:
The “Accidental” Handiwork of Farid Karakra a/k/a Farid Yusif . . .



Why was Karakra at a local Citgo mechanic’s garage at almost midnight? The garage was closed. He had just left friends at a local coffee shop and was en route to meet them at another location.
The FBI is asking all of these questions. But, they are tight-lipped on telling the media anything. They even refused comment on any connection of Karakra to 2 USF students who were recently arrested.
The question again is why. Have they established a connection? Are they looking into this as a matter of precaution? It would seem odd that a federal agency is involved in a matter left up to local fire investigators.

As readers know, Tampa is the home to the University of South Florida, terrorist Sami Al-Arian’s former place of employment. It is the home of the two “Just Fireworks” smiling Muslim terrorists caught with pipe bombs in Goose Creek, South Carolina, near an important military base. It is the home to two Saudi students who did a dry run on a kids’ schoolbus. And it is the home to a number of extremist mosques and Muslims who have been indicted in baby formula and other scams at party stores and grocery outlets they own.
So that a Palestinian mysteriously blows up in what appears to be preparation of explosives is really not a coincidence.
We’ve welcomed these people here. And this is just a taste of the consequences.
**** UPDATE: Bill Warner notes that the above photo of Farid Yusif a/k/a Farid Karakra is a MUG SHOT and that it was taken because the Palestinian has a criminal record. For what? Get this (from Warner):

Farid Yusif Karakra–The MSM is showing his mug shot. That photo was taken last July 2007, when he was arrested for UNAUTHORIZED USE OR POSSESSION OF FRAUDULENT ID a F-3 felony (Case Number: 07-CF-015528). He got it all reduced to traffic court and the case was closed in Sept. 2007.
Why did he need a phony ID last year?

Why, indeed. And why didn’t the mainstream media mention Karakra’s prior record? Trying to be nice to the dead?
Yup, this is how we let terrorists in our midst go free and further plan their “activities” against us. Fake ID held by a Muslim alien, and he gets traffic court treatment.
As I keep saying, it’s that Adam Ant song about our condition vis-a-vis Islamic terrorism:
Desperate But Not Serious.

These punks are amateurs looking to sharpen their jihadi teeth. I’m sure the FBI looks at it that way but sooner or later a Baby Face Nelson of the muslim world will get ahold of some “good stuff” and with a modicum of training do an horrific amount of damage. These little weasels need to be deported immediately. I don’t even want to pay for their stay in a prison here. If they managed US citizenship, revoke it and boot them out.

I read something about how he was going to go to NY in 2 months to get married. I wonder who the lucky lady was or how much she will get paid?

What are ICE agents doing while FBI investigates?
A) Celebrating Chinese New Year

C) On a Whopper raid at Burger King
D) Traffic stop on Oscar Meyer Weiner on Wheels
E) All the above

Sounds like he went out with a bang. I wish these jihadis many more—premature ejacualtions.

These guys always have those dark demon possessed eyes. Ice should just profile this LOOK. Something happens to a persons eyes when they become a sociopath or psychopath. This along with their favorite book would be an easy pick. We’d all be safer.

Debbie, you ask why didn’t the mainstream media mention Karakra’s prior record? My assertions would be the for same reason why every time the mainstream media does a report ( when they ever do) on a major crime, they fail to mention or even purposely omitting the perpentrator’s religious and racial background unless he is white. They won’t mention the fact that Mr. Karakra happens to be a muslim b/c they don’t want you to associate Islam with terrorism for all we know it could have been a white supremist behind the Tampa Gas Station explosion. They just want to have you believe that he is a disenfranchised minority who like to fiddle around with gasoline and explosives as a coping mechanism for his oppression by his predominatly evil islamaphobic white society.
Poor Jihadist!!Boo Hoo Hoo!!!

This site is the only place that I’ve seen reporting this incident. This should have been national news!!
The reason this clown was at the station at 99 o’clock is because the station gave him access to the tools and seclusion that he needed.
Extremist mosques exist in many cities across America and we do absolutely nothing about them. Maybe the next attack will wake up the real men in this nation. We need to start kicking in the front doors of these rat holes and expose these killers for who and what they are!!

The FBI and the rest of the federal government continue to downplay the presence of Muslim terrorist scum in our country because they are afraid of a “redneck backlash” against Muslims in this country.
Listen folks, we’re heading in that direction. Red-white-and-blue blooded American boys will not take this Muslim invasion too much longer. These people are a clear and danger threat to our lives and our way of life. They must be stopped from comming into this country, and thrown out if they are already here. Absolutely disgusting people.
