Ismail Moylan a/k/a Ismail Aljamal: Your Day in Patriotic Muslim Americans

By Debbie Schlussel

But, hey, I’m sure Islam had nooooothin’ to do with this. Right?


A Petaluma man was held on $1 million bail Tuesday after police and FBI agents found pipe bombs at his home and materials to make additional explosive devices. Sheriff’s deputies detonated two live bombs and two partially constructed devices outside the Quarry Street home, Petaluma police Lt. Tim Lyons said. . . .

Ismail Moylan, 30, was arrested on suspicion of possessing a destructive device. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Sonoma County Superior Court on Wednesday morning. Moylan, who police said also goes by the name Ismail Aljamal, initially was held in Sonoma County Jail on $250,000 bail. His bail was hiked to $1 million after police requested the increase in an attempt to keep him from being released, Lyons said. Moylan has lived in the subdivision near Corona Road for about 15 years, said neighbors. He manages a family-run religious publishing company from his home called Sidi Muhammad Press, according to the company’s website.

FBI agents joined the investigation Tuesday morning after three pipe bombs were found. Later in the day police requested additional FBI help. “We’re calling more FBI out to take a better look at the suspect’s history, based upon items found inside the residence,” said Lyons. “They’re (FBI agents) looking at the whole incident, making sure there’s nothing else to this.” . . . Initially Moylan was arrested on suspicion of illegally possessing prescription drugs, a misdemeanor. Officers then found a handgun at the home and what looked like a pipe bomb. Members of the Sonoma County sheriff’s bomb squad were called to the house and determined the pipe bomb, found in the garage, was real.

After obtaining a search warrant for the property, a more thorough effort began before dawn Tuesday and two more devices were found. . . . Of the four devices, two held explosive powder, according to bomb squad deputies. The explosive materials found in the garage included a plastic container of what appeared to be black, explosive powder and materials to make the powder, Lyons said. . . .

Moylan’s family purchased the home when the subdivision was built 15 years ago, neighbors said. They believed the suspect lived with his mother and perhaps other family members. They kept to themselves, didn’t regularly respond to waves or “hellos,” generating some puzzlement over the years due to the lack of neighborliness. Neighbors said they’d also been curious about frequent comings and going of people to the home arriving in vehicles with out-of-state license plates.

But no way this is Islamic terrorism, right? Not jihad. Just (not so) nice, innocent Muslim neighbors. There’s a reason the Joint Terrorism Task Force is involved. But he likes Grand Theft Auto, so he’s “just like us!”

Mike Silva, who lives in a nearby neighborhood, walked up Tuesday morning to learn more about what was happening. His family got an automated call from his children’s school, Meadow Elementary, which is just south of Corona Creek Elementary. “It shows you the sort of activities that can occur in our own backyards,” said Silva.

Exactly. It can happen in your backyard, my backyard, all of our backyards. That’s because we did nothing to stop Islamic immigration, and we continue to bend over backward for them, despite what they did to us on 9/11, at Fort Hood, and at other times elsewhere. This Ismail Aljamal felt comfy publishing jihadist lit and putting together bombs. And we’re just lucky that by a fluke, he wasn’t careful and was caught because of his illicit prescriptions.

But for that, he’d still be making bombs.

Or setting them off in the name of allah.

Petaluma’s up near San Fran. I wonder what he was planning to bomb. Probably a Boston-style attack at some crowded event.

DS_ROCKS! on October 15, 2013 at 6:53 pm

Wow. Check out his friends list on his FB page – very creepy to see all the bleeding-heart leftist appeasers and muslim converts.

DS_ROCKS! on October 15, 2013 at 6:58 pm

    His facebook page? Do I need a FB account to see this information?

    skzion on October 15, 2013 at 7:14 pm

      It’s the GTA link in the article:


      I think FB works like Twitter.

      DS_ROCKS! on October 15, 2013 at 7:39 pm

        Yes, it seems I don’t see that stuff since I’m not on Facebook.

        skzion on October 15, 2013 at 7:59 pm

          Just make a dummy account with a throwaway email. That’s what i do.

          DS_ROCKS! on October 15, 2013 at 10:41 pm

    The barbarians are no longer at the gates. They are in our towns and cities…….awaiting orders. As long as we have Quislings in high government positions who are sympathetic to these Muslim brotherhood/Hamas/Hesbollah/AlQueda followers, we are in danger of attack and, more insidiously, decay from within to the national will.

    Victoryman on October 16, 2013 at 10:03 am

A Muslim shopkeeper in the UK was a killed by a man wielding a machete.


Naturally, Islam has to do with it. The words “Islam” and “Muslim” appear nowhere in the story. The only clue to the identity of the victim is that he was preparing for Eid – an Islamic religious festival.

Who was the man wielding the machete? That’s one of the mysteries surrounding the murder but I would not be surpried at all if in fact he was a Muslim.

Stay cued for Cameron and Johnson to tell us again it had nothing to do with Islam! Exit question: how many non-Muslim killers run through a town with a bloodied machete?

NormanF on October 15, 2013 at 7:27 pm

There are more and more people like Ismail slithering all over the country. Only dumb luck saved the day.

worry01 on October 15, 2013 at 7:32 pm

    You’ll be happy to know Ismail was not convicted of any terrorism charges. But a screechy bottle blonde I am sure is a better judge of his guilt or innocence that any court or law enforcement agency. His Mom is a Muslim, true. By the standards of North Korean justice, still, they are guilty and should be sent to forced labor camps until they starve to death. You should apply for citizenship there. Guilt by implication and rumor is a hallowed principle.

    Family Friend on January 2, 2015 at 1:24 pm


He was caught only because of a minor crime. If not for that, he could have gotten away with mass murder.

And there are many more like him throughout this country.

NormanF on October 15, 2013 at 7:34 pm

We had a similar situation here in Boston but they have never released the name of the perp. On purpose. I have been unsuccessful in even finding the story in print (or TV broadcast) in even it’s illusive form. And I like to remind others of the 7 Moooooslims detained in Feb (I believe…) in the evening at our Quabbin Reservoir. Scant info on the follow up of that, too.

Things certainly are brewing.

(This fool’s name reminded me of something..Today is Eid al-Adha and the Mooooslims are celebrating Abraham’s (almost) sacrifice of “Ishmail”. But wasn’t it “Isaak”? Ishmail & his Mum (Hagar) were banished, I believe. Do I have this wrong? Or are the Mooooslims keeping consistent and usurping a truth and making it into their own???)

Skunky on October 15, 2013 at 8:08 pm

    Skunky, it’s Isaac, definitely. The Mooooslims are being consistent.

    skzion on October 15, 2013 at 8:28 pm

      OMG,Skzion, I know it shouldn’t freak me out but I am freaked out! That’s what I thought today when I first read it…I was sure it was Isaak & not Ishmail. How creepy.

      I hope the dopes who don’t take DS’ column seriously see that this is a HUGE example of proof to show what liars and frauds the Moooooslims are.

      How creepy. I’m so creeped out now…

      Skunky on October 15, 2013 at 11:03 pm

    “Boston Strong”

    skzion on October 15, 2013 at 8:28 pm

    “I like to remind others of the 7 Moooooslims detained in Feb (I believe…) in the evening at our Quabbin Reservoir.”

    I remember that. My blood ran cold when that item broke. I try to be strategic about when I go to places and where (like avoiding amusement parks or crowds on holidays) just in case of muslim attacks, but when I realized that they are now plotting to poison municipal water supplies, I just felt very vulnerable and queasy. muslim heinousness has no limit.

    The MSM story was that they were just curious engineering students taking snapshots or something?

    DS_ROCKS! on October 15, 2013 at 10:40 pm

DUH! DERP! They keep letting MUSLIMS into the country! What do they expect?

RT on October 15, 2013 at 11:10 pm

Obama’s people. Bush’s people. Delusion is a Washington thing. They simply do not live in the real world. They feel no pain. They have no want except that brought on by excess.

To those followers of DS’ blog who live in New York City: If (G-d forbid) Bill de Blasio becomes Mayor in November, I guarantee you there’ll be Boston Marathon-style attacks of some kind, or activation of plots like poisoning the water supply, because he will surely do the bidding of HAMAS CAIR in dismantling the NYPD’s counter-terror surveillance program, falling in line with those on the Left who claim that it constitutes “spying on Muslims.” And sadly, his GOP (read: RINO) opponent, Joe Lhota, is fast revealing himself to be a local version of Mitt Romney – and we all know how Romney fared last year. And for the exact same reasons as Debbie has noted: Uncontrolled Muslim immigration, enabled by both Republicrats and Democans. (And if any of you think, for example, that the spike of anti-gay attacks in the city is bad, with the aforementioned rise in the Muslim population it only stands to get worse – and there’ll be just as much, if not more, obfuscation in the media as we’re seeing today on all matters Muslim.)

ConcernedPatriot on October 16, 2013 at 6:26 am

    CP, I totally agree. I’ll add that nowadays the second biggest business in NYC is tourism. That will be hit regardless of major terrorist attacks if only by a rise in crime.

    NYC: back to “ungovernable.”

    skzion on October 16, 2013 at 10:50 am

C’mon guys! There was no pipe bomb construction going on here.

Help me out on this, ok?

If I remember correctly, in the movie, PAPILLON, didn’t the prisoners hide whatever small amounts of money, jewels, etc. in small “metal tubes” inserted into the rectum?

Well, there you have it!

Ismail most likely does not trust banks, so, he was making “tubes” to hold his valuables while he stored them very close at hand so to speak.

Ismail, Poops, err, Oops – pardon our doubts about you being an upright dude.

Dennis on October 16, 2013 at 8:10 am

Before anyone starts on me, I’m a Republican and Protestant Christian. I also live 3 doors down from the incident so saw it first hand. You’re all jumping to the wrong conclusions. If you want facts, what happened was Ismail Moylan (you can sensationalize things by using his mother’s name), the latter being Irish, is a young adult with serious mental problems, on the autistic scale if I had to guess. He threatened to kill himself and the family called the police for help. When they got him to some out they discovered home made fireworks,ma stupid hobby to have, but one he’s been fooling around with since his teens – stupid and needed to be stopped as it was. This led to a search warrant, finding several other devices, basically fireworks using pvc sprinkler pipe, and some minor drugs without Rx. Yep, it’s stupid that this went on but who among us doesn’t have various flammables, ferilizers, bits of sprinkler repair etc in our garages. I’m glad that a dangerous hobby was stopped and perhaps he’ll get some help. I’m not glad to see the lynch mob mentality.

The family is Sufi, about as far from violence as you can get. The house is used for prayer meetings as well as the business of authoring and publishing religious material. People visit to pick up materials, attend prayers, and learn about being Sufi.

The Police and FBI acted with impeccable professionalism and did nothing to inflame the situation; on the contrary they made it clear that terrorism was not involved.

Yes, he will have to face some serious felony charges but all will come to light. In the meantime, please see it for what it is: a guy with serious troubles.

From A Neighbor on October 16, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    Sorry, “Neighbour” but I don’t can about your blather. I’m gonna stick with the maths.

    You’re what is called a Dhimmi. Wake. Up.

    News all over the world lets a good chunk (think of it as merely the tip of the iceberg…with your eyes focused on the surface below rather than the tip) of the the nefarious truth of Moooooooslims every day. It’s there to see if you want. Most don’t so you’ll fit nicely in the dopey queue.

    Never listen to fools who don’t know the first thing about Islam. Their good intentions will lead you down the wrong road. I’m sticking with DS. And “neighbour” should visit her archives for stories of reverters who are strong Jihadists like Pom ‘White Widow’ Samantha Lewthwaite and that Al Shabaab dead jihadi Omar Hammami who was once her friend and enemy…but with Islam, those lines blur like that. Check out Adam Gadahn, too. And since I recently mentioned Steve Earle, remember John Walker “Rat Boy” Lindh??

    Who are you gonna listen to? An expert like DS or a know-nothing neighbour with good intentions???

    Skunky on October 16, 2013 at 5:55 pm

      Oz – convict strong…

      From A Neighbor on October 16, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    First, we don’t really know that this is a “neighbor.” We don’t know if this “neighbor” is a “Protestant Christian” either. (The “Protestant Christian” usage is highly unusual. Such persons call themselves “Christians.” Catholics are most likely to use the word “Protestant” and call themselves “Catholics” or “Christians.”)

    But let’s assume that this bogus “neighbor” is on the up and up. Then let’s think of all the stupid, know-nothing neighbors who are always interviewed saying “he was a good guy, always friendly, took out my trash when I broke my ankle,” etc. Then let’s compare this neighbor’s opinion with the data provided by our own blogress.

    Yeah, I’m not sure WHICH source to believe.

    skzion on October 16, 2013 at 6:16 pm

    Thank you from a neighbor. Shame on all of you who just automatically assume you know everything without finding out the truth. How would you feel if this happened to you or one of your family members that has an addiction and/or mental problem just because of a name. If your name is Billy Bob is it o.k. for me to assume you are part of the KKK or if your name is Leroy and you wear a hoody that your a hoodlum/ or if you name is Carlos that you are and illegal that’s in a gang killing people? I worked with the Ismail for a couple of years and all I have to say is he got more and more addicted to RX. He was in an accident that caused permanent pain hence the addiction to pain meds. Ismail was also a different kind of man with unexplainable ticks like clucking like a chicken or having a child like humor by saying stuff like “Okly dokoly” etc… I have also heard (before this happened) that he was in to making fireworks. So now you got it from 2 sources. He was an odd man in his actions and words but by no means would he intentionally hurt anyone. So on that note I hope none of you have to face the discrimination that you are putting on him. No I am not of his faith or culture I am a white spiritual person who is so tired of everyone thinking they are above anyone else and FYI if you do your research you would come to find that government knew 9/11 was going to happen. Don’t judge unless you want to be judged. Uneducated sorry pieces of crap. May you higher power whom or whatever that may be to you forgive you for your appalling accusations.

    from an aquaintence on November 3, 2013 at 3:35 am

Well folks, I am what I say I am, and what I said is true. I describe myself as Protestant Christian is to differentiate myself from Catholic, where our beliefs differ considerably, as I am at the low church end of the spectrum. It’s perfectly normal if you’re low church. As to being Dhimmi, that’s a wierd way to use the word and makes me wonder whether this forum is used by folk who want to understand the truth. Yes, I am a neighbor, and, yes, I know more than most as I’m here. All that DS reports is a cut/paste of a Santa Rosa Press Democrat article (please look yourselves) and contains no new content. The only inside honest unreported material is from me.

Sure, you can never 100% know the content of someone’s mind – all that is certain here is that this was a disturbed individual needing help. The same would have happened whatever the religion, in fact you’ll find a similar story the following day in the PD, but not sensationalized because there’s no religious angle to be used to jump to conclusions.

So, ask yourself what you actually know vs what you speculate. Ask yourself what new facts are offered in the article?

Then again probably the wrong forum to offer any facts, but I live in hope that at least DS is a bit more open to the truth.

From A Neighbor on October 16, 2013 at 11:03 pm

Thank you neighbor. I’m a family friend, and your version of events is correct. I am a lot more scared at some of the ‘patriots’ in this forum than Ismail. The guy had problems. He is NOT a Muslim, his parents gave him that name when they were Sufis. Now only his Mom is. Not that there is anything wrong with being a Muslim. There’s at least a billion of them. Obviously this is a sensationalist rag populated by wild-eyed hate mongers. I hope Debbie isn’t Jewish. Not that there is anything wrong with being Jewish, except that they are notoriously intelligent. At least my wife, who is Jewish, isn’t. There are plenty of people who are convinced the Jews are all plotting the undoing of Western Civilization. This zine is just the flip side of that. So tiresome, and sad, how so many people drift thru the cracks into extremism. Jesus, what does it DO for you people?

Family Friend on December 19, 2013 at 2:34 am

…meant to say, at least my wife, who is Jewish, is intelligent. BTW, how about some rants about the millions of patriotic Christians who are piously condoning our schools being turned into shooting ranges, because they want to protect their right to fight a war with our government.

Family Friend on December 19, 2013 at 2:39 am

Oh, and by the way. The FBI investigated the whole case, and left it to local law enforcement. No federal charges were filed. Nothing like ‘intent to commit terror’ or conspiracy, or anything like that was included in the charges that were. But I guess if you have an avatar out of a Japanese horror movie and a keyboard and a lot of free time to kill down in your Mom’s basement, you know different.

Family Friend on December 19, 2013 at 2:47 am

Gosh, Debbie, you were so quick to level charges and a little tardy in your response to the facts of the case as they later emerged. Of course, this would have nothing to do with your ultimate goal of seeing the truth prevail, even if that means admitting you were wrong. I am sure, in many instances, you have retracted your hasty charges. You are not just a shameless media-bleep racing to the bottom to try ad get ahead of Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin with the most outlansish statements, hoping to garner media attention therewith. No, as well-educated as you claim to be, you’d recognize that crying
wolf’ at every alleged instance of Muslim jihadism, and never admitting to premature allegations, might cause you to lose credibility with all but the most gullible readers. No, you would find REAL, ACTUAL instances of overlooked jihadism and calmly present the facts, letting them speak for themselves. Thanks for the high standards!

Family Friend on December 27, 2013 at 11:37 am

I am surprised you have to ask us to cough up $5 to support your ‘work’. (Very classy, btw, to appeal for that level of funding at the top of your front page. Kind of indicates who your audience is). With your impeccable credentials, I can’t imagine why you aren’t on the payroll of a half-dozen right-wing think tanks, or drawing 100K per lecture as is Sarah Palin. For $5 I’ll send you a set of Coulter/Palin voodoo dolls and pins from NON-ISLAMIC African sources. I guarantee they will jump-start your career faster than this business of hyper-ventillating every time you hear the word ‘Muslim’. By the way, happy Eid Mubarak celebrating the Prophet Issa’s birthday (Alayhi-As-Salaam), and may you be guided by the Shari’a throughout 1435 (Hijira)!
