Yonathan Melaku: Hey Another “Moderate” Muslim in US Military w/ Explosives, Qaeda Lit Near Pentagon

By Debbie Schlussel

It figures that a man found with “inert” explosives (testing the system/doing a dry run) and Al-Qaeda literature right near the Pentagon (and roaming Arlington National Cemetery at 1:30 a.m.) is 1) a Muslim, 2) an alien who was granted U.S. citizenship, and 3) serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. It’s like playing Whack-a-Mole with eventual terrorists who almost universally fit this profile because we refuse to profile them out of the system ahead of time. And Whack-a-Mole isn’t a national security policy. It’s incompetence and suicide.


Yonathan Melaku: Another Islamic Terrorist Serving in US Military, Alien Granted US Citizenship

I don’t think I need to repeat the long list of Muslims serving in the U.S. military who turn out to be spies, terrorists, murderers, and other malefactors betraying the BS about how we have “so many loyal Muslim Americans serving their country in the U.S. Armed Forces.”  Nidal Malik Hassan, John Allen Muhammad, Noureddine Malki a/k/a Mr. X, Assan Akbar, Wassef Ali Hassoun, Ahmad Al-Halabi, Ali Mohamed, Ryan Anderson, Semi Osman, Jeffrey Leon Battle, are just a few names I can remember off the top of my head. Well, it is true that they are serving their country.  Problem is, their country is the greater Muslim Ummah (community), not America.  And the latest is Yonathan Melaku, a U.S. citizen of Ethiopian descent.  When will we stop bending over backward–and forward–for this so-called “religion of peace,” that has zero relationship with that latter word? Kudos to the very alert LOCAL police who caught this cretin.

A man who was carrying suspected bomb making materials and pro-al Qaeda literature was arrested in Arlington National Cemetery early this morning, triggering a bomb scare that snarled Washington’s morning rush hour. The FBI, however, determined that the material in his backpack was harmless.

“There was not a device and the products found are determined right now to be inert,” said Brenda Heck, special agent in charge of counterterrorism for the FBI. . . .

Sources told ABC News earlier that the backpack contained what was believed to be ammonium nitrate and spent ammunition for an automatic weapon. The material was reportedly contained in four large ziplock type bags.

Sources also said there were pro-al Qaeda statements found in a notebook that contained mostly notes for a financial class. There was also was a page containing words “al qaeda,” “Taliban rules,” “mujahidin” and “defeated coalition forces.”

Two separate law enforcement sources told ABC News law enforcement identified the suspect as Yonathan Melaku, 22, of Alexandria, Va. U.S. Park Police said no charges have been filed against him yet.

Melaku is a naturalized citizen and lance corporal in the Marine Corps Reserve, 4th engineer batallion out of the Baltimore, Md.

“We are told he had a backpack with five pounds of something labeled ammonium nitrate but as of this juncture, has not passed the test that indicates explosive capacity,” New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said today, when asked about the arrest. . . .

Sources say they haven’t found any ties to a terrorist organization.

Um, yeah, he is, indeed, tied to a terrorist organization. It’s called ISLAM. Hellooooooooo . . . ?

Melaku allegedly told police in Arlington when he was captured that there were other “devices” in the area and also the location of his vehicle. But the FBI said there was no reason to believe other individuals were involved and they believe the suspect acted alone. . . .

The Pentagon and the surrounding areas were closed to traffic this morning, creating a commuting nightmare.

Park Police Sgt. David Scholsser said in a news conference the man was found at about 1:30 a.m. in the Arlington National Cemetery, located near the Pentagon. He was first caught by the Ft. Myers police but then ran into adjacent Arlington National Cemetery, where he was apprehended by the military. When questioned, Melaku was uncooperative but then took the police to his car.

Melaku was arrested last month for smashing windows and stealing valuables from 27 cars in Leesburg, Va. He was charged with four counts of grand larceny although the police did not find any discernible ideological motive.

Now, authorities aren’t even sure what to charge this obvious terrorist with, if they charge him with anything at all. Hey, I always visit Arlington National Cemetery at 1:30 a.m. with a backpack containing spent ammunition and inert and fake explosives, don’t you? And it’s normal to write pro-Al Qaeda statements in your notes from finance class, right?

Nothing to see here. Move along. And stop with your Islamophobia. He’s just another of our finest Muslim American citizens serving in America’s Armed Forces.

They’re already telling us he’s “mentally unstable,” as apparently are all Muslims who are Islamic terrorists and faithfully follow through on their religious edicts to destroy non-Musilms. Question is, if he’s so unstable, how did he make it to the Marines without incident?

Allahu FUBAR. Only in America.

I didn’t see or hear anything about this in the news. So it must mean that muslims are peaceful, hard working “folk” (to use obama’s favorite word to make himself seem not arrogant) or if he did do something bad, then he was menatlly unstable and it had nothing to do with his religion. Isn’t that the way the formula works?

Great job, Debbie – as usual.

    De on June 21, 2011 at 3:11 pm

      Marine Corps says Melaku is a Muslim.

      “Melaku lists his religion as Muslim in military papers, according to a Marine Corps spokesman.” http://t.co/P0HQjEi

      As for the vile ‘anonymous’ and ‘De’ … you know him personally, do you? I’m gonna assume then that you’re young adolescent Eritreans in Virginia. Why you following DS’s blog? How’d you happen to find this post so dang quickly?

      So, who are you really?

      Why you lying? Why you trying to protect a Muslim accused of shooting up military buildings and carrying around jerry-rigged bombs in the middle of the night?

      What’s your game? Trying to convince Americans that Muslims are all good and Americans like DS are all just bigots?

      Only folks I know watching every move DS makes are those creepy Muslim stalkers in employ of that foul hamasbagger NGO.

      Failed men, from failed states, with a failing religion, fanatics thirsting for the longest possible penal code, convinced that it’s possible simultaneously to be a random mass
      murderer and a good Muslim.

      That you?

      Name starts with a ‘C’ … and a grand jury — famously — thought their cultish-NGO dirty enough to include it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial.

      DS, might I ask you to check your logs and post the IP addresses of these two lying, seditious, terror apologists.

Anonymous person on June 17, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    Anonymous–it’s easy to lie on the internet.

    The Qur’an is extremely violent toward all non-Muslims, based as it is on progressive revelation (17.106 (middle Mecca); 16.101 (late Mecca); 2.106 (Medina); 76.23 (Medina)).

    The final chapters–chronologically–replace the earlier ones and they are not at all peaceful (the last 5 are: 62, 48, 5, 110, 9 (the last)).

    But I’m sure you already knew that. Practicing taqiyya (16.106, 3.28-29) is even easier to do anonymously than in person.

    PatriotTwin on June 22, 2011 at 7:40 am

    Everyone is pandering to Muslims. If the Muslim people do not want to be steroid typed then stop wearing Muslim garb, stand and salute our flag, show your graditude for being here and speak out when terrorist hit.
    The sad truth is if you go to a Mosque you are a danger. You will do what the Iman says to do. Get a real Koran and read it and you will understand why we feel like we do. ALL the terror stuff is there and to be a true Muslim you must kill the infidel (all who do not bow to Allah). IT IS IN THE BOOK.
    I have a copy of the book, so I know.
    We need to do what was done before and start running these rats out of this Country. When in Rome do what the Romans do…when in America, do what Americans do.
    Muslims are trying to take over this Country from the inside and we are allowing it.

    Subee on June 24, 2011 at 11:07 am

We should wizen up… Just imagine what would happen if once a week 30 scumbags (pardon my French) would do this in 30 big cities all over the US… And do it for a few weeks running…

These are people that wouldn’t mind blowing themselves up… Here they get to inflict huge financial damage and they aren’t even going to go to jail for it…

They wouldn’t even need to rely on an observant policemen… An anonymous 911 call from a pay-phone (by a co-conpirator) would alert the police to a “suspicious Muslim type”…

Chaching! Every time they pull it off the financial damages (wasted law enforcement operations, wasted time in traffic, gas, lost business etc) is going to run into the tens of millions…

anonymous on June 17, 2011 at 2:45 pm


    He is not a Christian. Take one look at the beard in the photograph. How many Ethiopian Christian men in Northern Virginia have beards?

    Evidently, he was converted (reverted would be a better word) to Islam by the Ethiopian Muslims. And, surprise, he became violent and barbaric as a result.

    JM on June 17, 2011 at 3:14 pm

      We know Ethiopia was a Jewish country before it became Christian. Islam arrived in the Middle Ages and the Christians and Jews put aside their differences to prevent the country from being swamped by Dar al Islam. Nowadays its a landlocked country and the Christians are very much on the defensive in the face of Islam there.

      Think it won’t happen here? Islam all over today is extreme. But no one wants to face up to it. We are in denial.

      NormanF on June 17, 2011 at 3:47 pm

      well my 2 brothers have a beard and we are all Ethiopian Orthodox, so it is silly to judge because of his facial hair. You have a right to infer whatever you like, but I do know for a fact he was brought up in a strict Christian household.

      anonymous on June 19, 2011 at 10:33 am

    Christians don’t carry Islamic literature and don’t conduct dry runs in the dead waste and middle of the night.

    This was probing for weaknesses around the Pentagon. But hey, Al Qaeda sympathizers never do that, right?

    We should know they’re going to take revenge at some point for our having killed Bin Laden. We shouldn’t be surprised when it finally happens!

    NormanF on June 17, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    haha, i find that amusing. I have no problem with being a Muslim and/or against Muslims, but I am a Christian…not that it matters. the name in my email is that of an Ethiopian. Educate yourself and get back to me.

    anonymous on June 19, 2011 at 10:29 am

    this “al-qaeda literature” you speak of was within a finance book, it is made to seem as though he carried an entire text when in reality he had random words scribbled within a finance book…I recommend you read the FBI reports before jumping to conclusions.

    anonymous on June 19, 2011 at 10:31 am

There are many religions that have violent histories and strong rhetoric. Even my religion, Christianity, has its fair share of lunatics who are crazy because of mental issues, poor upbringing or other factors. I certainly wouldn’t want to be considered a terrorist because of them.

And I myself am a naturalized citizen. I was adopted as an infant with no control over my circumstance. I was naturalized because two American citizens wanted me here. So if somebody from my country did this I wouldn’t want to be at risk for being sent “home” to nothing. And I don’t deserve to be seen as a second class citizen because I was born someplace else.

Anyone who is ignorant enough to think Islam is a terrorist group and every Muslim is a terrorist is also a bit deranged and scary in my opinion.

There is no reason a naturalized citizen should be profiled against and no reason that we should profile people based on religion. That is what the extreme regimes do, that is what we claim we’re fighting against. We say that the terrorists and extremists shouldn’t target Americans, moderate Muslims or non Muslims but then we do the exact same? We start taking away the freedoms of people who are citizens based on their religion? That’s not American.

CONCERNEDnaturalizedCITIZEN on June 17, 2011 at 2:51 pm

You’re right. That is not American; that is Islam. Since that is exactly what Muslims want to do to all others–take away their freedoms and make them submit to Islam while at the same time stealing from their prosperity–it wouldn’t be American to continue to encourage them to come to America and cater to their whims and prejudices.

The American thing to do would be to put an end to having these anti-Semitic and anti-Christian and anti-American Muslim barbarians come to our shores. They will never assimilate into Western civilization and will never show tolerance to non-Muslims. So why should we show tolerance to them?

JM on June 17, 2011 at 3:22 pm

“Mentally unstable?”

Debbie, the Muslim terrorists in New York earlier this week were found mentally incompetent and you did not bother to write about the significance of it!

I doubt this guy will ever stand trial. Cuz we all know, its not Islam, its crazy Muslims who perpetrate terrorism! Their ideology is never responsible!

As for him being Ethiopian, there are lots of Muslims in southern and western Ethiopia. Not every one from that country is Christian or Jewish.


NormanF on June 17, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    I should say to correct the geography, eastern Ethiopia. Eritrea and the border regions are Muslim. There has long been a Muslim insurgency in the south in the Ogaden bordering Somalia. And there al-Shabaab, an Al Qaeda terrorist outfit, is very prominent. Not all the Islamic terrorists are Somalis. This guy did quite a good job of hiding his obvious Islamic terrorist extremism. We don’t ask on citizenship tests whether you sympathize with Islam and its just as much of a problem as Communism was back in the day. At least we were zealous about that during the Cold War. We’ve been asleep since 9/11.

    NormanF on June 17, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    His name is a typical Christian name, Yonathan is taken from the King James’ Amharic translation of the Old Testament and means Jonathan and Melaku translates into His angel. This is a typical Orthodox Christian name which about 45% of Ethiopians are. And if he had converted he would have had a different name as Muslims are big on having names that would identify them as Muslims.

    HH: Means nothing. Remember Binyam Muhammad. First name is Biblical, too. But he’s an Al-Qaeda terrorist we caught. DS

    H Haileselassie on June 20, 2011 at 1:29 pm

      Melaku’s family is hard to figure. Tax records and other documents show that in his house were people with Christian, Jewish, and Muslim names. Some are related; some are not. Folks in his Alexandria VA neighborhood know little.

      It’s all still pretty unclear.

      Any readers here, from the Eritrean or Ethiopian community in Silver Spring MD, Alexandria VA, Chicago IL, Washington DC, or Temple Hills MD, know this Yohannes Melaku, or a person named Zeid/Zaid Berharne, or Abeba Yohannes, or Menkir Melaku (might be a cab driver). If you can shed any light on their histories, please post here or contact me by Twitter @alimhaider

As usual, you can always count on the F*ked-Up And Incompetent to determine its never terrorism.

It never is in these cases. The FBI takes zero serious interest in them. Connections, shmenections.

I’d like to point out at this point that the Fox News web site is pointing out that he is Muslim.

So much for their pandering to Muslims.

How do you know this isnt happening every week with a thousand scumbags in a hundred big cities all over the US? I think it is and we only catch a tiny little fraction so it seems like a “small minority” – ya small minority that gets caught. And our government is doing everything in its power to catch less of them! Opposite world?

Bruce on June 17, 2011 at 4:15 pm

Anyone who is ignorant enough to think Islam is a terrorist group and every Muslim is a terrorist is also a bit deranged and scary in my opinion.

Islam is a religion which calls for death of unbelievers. Its up to the individual adherents to decide TO WHAT DEGREE they want to carry out these “COMMANDMENTS FROM GOD.” EVERY TRUE MUSLIM adhering to the HIGHEST MOST PURIST level of this commandment will be a murdering psychopathic killer in the name of Muhammad and Allah. THANK GOD that most Muslims do not adhere to their religion one hundred percent – that is the restraining power of God at work for ya.

There is no reason a naturalized citizen should be profiled against and no reason that we should profile people based on religion.

Sure there is, its called surah al Tawba.

Bruce on June 17, 2011 at 4:17 pm

How was this guy admitted into the Marines, let alone be assigned to such a sensitive military unit without even a minimal background check?

I’ll be surprised if he gets a dishonorable discharge.

NormanF on June 17, 2011 at 4:21 pm

I am tired of reading about all these situations where there is plotting and “appearances” of an attack. I actually want there to be another terrorist attack on US soil so the citizens can again be outraged and speak out about the “sivs” that are our borders, all the illegals that are already here and unaccounted for and our politicians issuing so many visas and allowing so many foreign students from the middle east (I don’t care what their religion is, or what they say it is).

This country is filled with individuals that have no pride in the USA. They steal all they can. (Medicare, Mortgages, Tax Evasion – huge amounts commonly perpetrated by persons not born in the USA) They have there hand out for all they can get in government services. When they are done stealing from us and trying to kill us they leave since they have no long term ties to this country but to destroy it.

Randal P on June 17, 2011 at 6:31 pm

This guy was a naturalized citizen. Some Muslims are native born Americans. Doesn’t matter. In the end, they reveal their first loyalty is not to this country or to fellow Americans. We should get it but we don’t.

Obama said in January we should welcome them into the American family. Betraying your family is not the way to show you deserve to be a part of it.

NormanF on June 17, 2011 at 7:58 pm

    Occam's Tool on June 17, 2011 at 11:27 pm

This guy is nuts! I don’t know him, but his name as an Ethiopian is typically christian. did he change his religion?
possible. Acting alone, claiming having a weapon of mass destruction, previous problems with the law, driving a new 2011 car at age 22 with no significant income tells me this is
a sick person looking for attention or crying for help!
Needs a medical evaluation before he kills or likely being killed for stupid egotistic actions in the future,

l selassie on June 17, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    As I noted, there are Muslims in the south and east of your country. They want to turn Ethiopia into an Islamic state. Things are not good for the Christians there. Almost all the Jews have been safely evacuated to Israel. So yes Ethiopian Muslims are quite extreme here and back in your homeland. We’re lucky this guy only did a “dry run.”

    NormanF on June 17, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    The other thing I should point out again is Muslims committed to terrorizing and murdering infidels are not “crazy”. They are acting according to Islamic religious precepts. We can’t medicalize the problem. It isn’t a question of an individual off his rocker but an ideology one that hates Jews, Christians and the West. In short, its the Islam, stupid. And as long as we continue to allow more and more of them into this country, we will have incidents like this one far into the future.

    Allahu FUBAR, indeed.

    NormanF on June 17, 2011 at 9:46 pm

      Denoted on June 18, 2011 at 12:54 am


FACT: There may be Moderate Muslims but there is NO MODERATE ISLAM. “Moderate” Muslims that you speak of are referred to as “hypocrites” in the Qu’ran, and their fate shall indeed be a bad one from Allah.

“The Hypocrites will be in the lowest depths of the Fire; and you will not be able to find for them a helper.” (Qur’an 4:145)

A hypocrite is one who does not engage in violent jihad. A hypocrite is a Muslim who does not cover herself up. A hypocrite is a a Muslim who drinks alcohol or takes “Unbelievers” as friends. However, if he is part of the government that he is trying to deconstruct, then he can use “taquiyya” or “lying” to cover his action, so long as he is engaged in furthering jihad. An example is the 9/11 bombers, who, prior to their attacks, went to nightclubs, had sex wth women, and drank alcohol. The western world is full of these “hypocrites” but when the Islamic winds of change come, they will fall into line with the “radical” Islamists… the REAL Muslims.

Wild Bill has it right. These em-effers have no idea who they’re effing with. Check out Wild Bill:


?: While I like his patriotic sentiment, sadly, he is very wrong about what we did in Iraq and Afghanistan. In fact, our soldiers generally did not kill many people in either of these countries. Instead, they mostly did and still do humanitarian things and suck-up stuff. That’s why these jihadists aren’t afraid of us at all. They’ve been watching us pander to them on their shores and our own even for the nearly 10 years since 9/11. They need not war against us on our own soil. They are getting it done the easy way, through immigration, massive birth rates, and getting our government to kowtow to and bend over for them on US soil for the last ten years. And no U.S. soldiers are doing a damned thing to stop it. They aren’t allowed to, which is why Nidal Malik Hassan and other Muslim soldiers like him get to kill them even on U.S. soil. I wish Wild Bill were correct. Sadly, he is not. DS

? on June 18, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    Apart from ousting Saddam’s fascist regime and getting rid of the Al Qaeda allied Taliban, our policies in Iraq and Afghanistan have been disastrous. Most people don’t think it was worth the cost in American lives. If we had held back Islam as in Islamist regimes, that might be one thing. But if all we’re doing there is running a humanitarian operation, our military has no business being there. Ditto for the intervention in Libya which has no logical justification.

    NormanF on June 19, 2011 at 12:36 am

@ Caroline – exactly. Well stated.

DS_ROCKS! on June 19, 2011 at 12:50 am

The correct approach to dealing with Islamic terrorism is to tie the future viability of prayer services in, and absence of oddly fused green glass on, Mecca and Medina rests upon the good behavior of Muslims in their various countries.

No terrorist attacks on US Cities or citizens, prayer activities continue. Terrorist activities, prayer activities stop outside of lead suits. If they continue, other holy sites get to experience hot winds of the Sun’s energies unleashed perilously close to ground. After the first bombs drop, security activities on US airlines go back to 9/10 levels, with warnings of future reminders if pupil is unduly slow on uptake.

Their lives should be disrupted and fearful because of their terrorist threats and actions, not ours. Their people should bleed for threats and activities, not ours.

That is how proper wars are fought and won. Like WWII.

Occam's Tool on June 19, 2011 at 3:46 am

Inert! When wqas the last time you heard police use such a term?


In chemistry, the term inert is used to describe something that is not chemically reactive.

The noble gases were previously known as inert gases because of their perceived lack of participation in any chemical reactions. The reason for this is that their outmost electron shells (valence shells) are completely filled, so that they have little tendency to acquire or lose electrons. It is now known that these gases in fact do react to form chemical compounds, such as xenon tetrafluoride. Hence, they have been renamed to noble gases. However, a large amount of energy is required to drive such reactions, usually in the form of heat, pressure, or radiation, often assisted by catalysts. The resulting compounds often need to be kept in moisture-free conditions at low temperatures to prevent rapid decomposition back into their elements.

The term inert may also be applied in a relative sense. For example, molecular nitrogen is inert under ordinary conditions, existing as diatomic molecules, N2. The presence of a very strong triple covalent bond in the N2 molecule renders it unreactive under normal circumstances. Nevertheless, nitrogen gas does react with the alkali metal lithium to form compound lithium nitride (Li3N), even under ordinary conditions. Under high pressures and temperatures and with the right catalysts, nitrogen becomes more reactive; the Haber process uses such conditions to produce ammonia from atmospheric nitrogen.

Inert atmospheres consisting of gases such as argon, nitrogen, or helium are commonly used in chemical reaction chambers and in storage containers for air-sensitive or water-sensitive substances, to prevent unwanted side-reactions of these substances with air and water.

Shit is getting old real fast. But of course, the US will continue to open all doors to every FUTURE POTENTIAL TERRORIST, whether they be a Muslim or not!!! I moved to Northern VA after college for the employment in DC, and this is the first time in my life, that I ever seen so many Africans from Ethiopia, Sierra Lieone,etc… I have worked with quite a few being a government contractor. They come here, and then talk shit and protest about mistreatment of their people. They need to take the time and have their own folks stop shooting and trying to bomb stuff…real talk.

I know this dude, he used to frequent race forums back in 04-06. He’s a nutcase. He once exposed himself and masturbated on webcam, all the nude photos and videos if him were uploaded online, and sent to his parents. They kicked him out of his house.

Send me an email and I’ll try to find the photos/videos.

I know its him because of his name yonathan menkir/melaku, his funny head shape, and that he lives in south DC.
