BREAKING: Muslim Tried to Detonate Fed Courthouse; Cased Burger King, Too; Disturbing MySpace Jihad

By Debbie Schlussel

**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE (Wanted to Target Israel, Jews) ****

Meet Talib Islam a/k/a Michael Finton.  He’s another one of those “random,” “few,” “unbalanced” “hijackers that hijacked” the “Religion of Peace.”  And, ironically, he plotted to blow up the Illinois Federal courthouse that’s named after one of the most anti-Semitic, anti-Israel Members of Congress in history, Paul Findley (who is now on the payroll of Gulf State salafists and runs an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic magazine). He was arrested today.



A 29-year-old man has been arrested on charges that he allegedly planned to bomb a federal courthouse in Illinois and kill employees there.

Federal officials say the case has no connections with the major terrorism investigation under way in Colorado and New York.

So, what? It’s his connection to something else that’s the only thing relevant here: Islam.

Authorities say Michael Finton, also known as Talib Islam, was taken into custody by federal agents Thursday on charges of planning to use a vehicle bomb to attack the Paul Findley Federal Office Building and Courthouse in Springfield.

Finton told a federal judge was a part-time cook in a central Illinois fish and chicken restaurant.

Question for the FBI:  Was Talib Islam plotting to blow up Burger King, too?

Famous But Incompetent might wanna check into that because I know that BK isn’t halal (most of the franchises aren’t), and reader Duane found his MySpace page, which features this pic, above, of Mr. Islam “visiting” his local BK palace.  The page is also laden with jihadi, Malcolm X, and hip-hop stuff.  Shocker.  Plus his one MySpace subscription is to “Malik, the Meccan Warrior.”

More info on Talib Islam:  His MySpace page features anti-Israel commentary (were Jews next on his hit list?), the repeated Arabic phrase which claims there is no god but allah, and this description:

I am a Muslim man who is trying to please Allah (SWT) first in my life and insha Allah one day marry a strong muslim womem that will bring me closer to Allah(swt).

Read the above story again to learn how a good Muslim tries to “please allah.”

Question #2 for the FBI: How many “strong Muslim womem [sic]” did he date, and how many of them knew of his plans but stayed silent?

Here are parts of a jihadist discussion between Islam and his nephew:

OUR POWER IS IN RE-ESTABLISHING THE SYSTEMS OF ISLAM. As a Muslim community, we do not lack any type of assets – whether it be natural resources, our numbers, or our capabilities. We have the power to be successful in this world and in the hereafter.

What we lack is the proper implementation of this power. What we lack is the proper organization of the State. We have the perfect solution for our current condition in the form of the Islamic systems. The longer we delay in implementing this solution, the more will our resources be wasted in mismanagement and extortion, and the longer the Muslim Ummah suffers.

Clearly, the problem is a religion–a very specific religion that continues to invade and spread like a cancer throughout America. When will this country wake up?

I credit and congratulate the FBI agents who got this guy, but, sadly, their superiors at the agency–who continue to hang with and fete extremist Muslims–are part of the problem, not the solution.

**** UPDATE: Learning more about Talib Islam.  He wanted to target Israel and Jews, and he idolized American Taliban John Walker Lindh.

After returning from a trip to Saudi Arabia in 2008, Finton met and told an individual, who turned out to be a law enforcement source, that he wanted to fight against Israelis in the Gaza Strip, according to the complaint.

In early 2009, “it appeared that Finton was on the verge of taking action, so it was decided to proactively provide him with an opportunity for action that we controlled, rather than merely hoping to be able to find out and stop him,” according to a government affidavit.

He was eventually introduced to an undercover FBI agent who began working with him to plot an attack, but Finton was repeatedly told he could walk away at any time, according to the Justice Department.

Eventually, Finton picked the federal building in Springfield as the target and on Wednesday he parked a van he believed carried one ton of explosives at the location, the complaint said.

Finton walked away and tried to detonate the bomb with a cell phone call, but instead of setting it off, he was arrested.

Plus, here’s his profile page:

Burger King is a great and patriotic company. They donated to the VFW $250,000 earlier this year for military families.

JM on September 24, 2009 at 4:25 pm

A would be Salafist. They’re the ones who lead the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda. There is a correlation between Muslim fanaticism and terrorism. Yhe more rigorous the Muslim, the more likely he will move to carry his beliefs into violent action.

What a nice guy! I’m glad the Feds put him away.

NormanF on September 24, 2009 at 4:52 pm

Gee, I sure hope we haven’t OFFENDED any muzzie by his arrest.

Let’s get him the “proper” toilet in his jail cell; a nice rug so he can stick his BUTT in the AIR multiple times a day; a koran (and beat him if he doesn’t have it memorized); and perhaps a menu planner so he can custom order his meals while encarcerated.

Frankly, any person plotting treason against this country deserves death. Johnny Walker Lindh should have been executed along with the likes of this turd.

goldenmike4393 on September 24, 2009 at 5:00 pm

    goldenmike4393 – why are you being so nice to the muzzies? heh

    A red headed muzzie, that’s great. Hopefully he will be Bubba’s bitch for a long time. That’s better than the death penalty. Perhaps he will even get a prison tattoo of a sheep on his back so that the other muzzies will feel right at home when they are obliging themselves.

    Jarhead on September 24, 2009 at 6:43 pm


      Good idea. Let him become Bubba’s wife. Let’s hope he is abused mercilessly.

      Oh, I hope I didn’t offend any muzzies.

      goldenmike4393 on September 24, 2009 at 6:58 pm

He’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Not Ovenready on September 24, 2009 at 5:01 pm

And it all leads back to the CIA and FBI with their staging attacks to drive us as Americans into slavery.

Bob Porrazzo on September 24, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    Dear Bob:

    Let’s get “in step” with I-slam. THE JOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSS are behind this plot.

    Of course, the Jews~!~

    goldenmike4393 on September 24, 2009 at 5:43 pm

What disturbs me more is we’re only catching the idiots and the sloppy ones. But will we catch those of the same caliber like those in Mumbai or 9/11?

USMC on September 24, 2009 at 8:03 pm

This blog serves no purpose but to stereotype and insult all Muslims!

you debbie are a typical Zionist, full of hate, stereotypes & animosity! You zionists are a shame to Judaism! Just like Islamic fanatics are a shame to Islam!

You judging ALL MUSLIMS as to what a few do, would be like idiots who Judge all Jews based on what Israel does! ignorance is bliss i guess!

Tarek M. Salah on September 24, 2009 at 8:13 pm

    “You judging ALL MUSLIMS as to what a few do, would be like idiots who Judge all Jews based on what Israel does! ignorance is bliss i guess!”


    Time for a history lesson, first read the Quran! It demands the murder of all Kafir with a special preference for jews, and yes ALL practicing Muslims are evil unless by some weird twist they decide NOT to follow those portions of the Quran. Tell me Tarek how do us Kafir know which observant Muslims have decided to twist their religion in our favor. As for Judging Jew by what Israel does, WHAT THE HELL HAVE THEY EVER DONE wrong to their illegal emigrant neighbors? Don’t forget in the 1850’s the verified population of all of Palestine was 15,000 10,000 who were non-european Jews of native Palestinian origin dating back before the Babylonian exile. Remember Palestine was ALL of modern Jordan, all of the Sinai Peninsula, most of Lebanon. The grand Mufti inspired the slaughter of 50,000 jews, and about 10,000 Druze, non Arab Christians, and some Bedouins. He was co-author of Hitlers Final solution and brought Egyptian Pan-Arabism (the founding basis of Nazism) to hitler. The Mufti coined the term Palestinian a racist terror organization consisting of Muslims who called themselves Arabs (although most are of turkish and Eastern European decent) as the only members, along with some authentic Arab Christians. They intern spread the lie that ALL observant Muslims know is false, “Jerusalem is ISLAM’s third holiest city”, of course we all know that is not true, and those of us who studied the Quran and the Hadiths know full well about the forged Hadiths of Syria and the Ottomons relating this falsehood. So Mr. Tarek the Israelis have NEVER done the so called Palestinians any harm, but have instead barely defended themselves against this group of Nazi like thugs! Go f… yourself!!!

    Moses Newman on September 25, 2009 at 1:21 am

      Hey Moe- you rule! I told our friend Tarek (does it rhyme with “drek”) yesterday to go peddle his bullshit to farmers. And as much as he supposedly hates this “evil” website, he keeps coming back.. just like he keeps visiting all those “evil” porn sites…

      Doda McCheesle on September 25, 2009 at 10:39 am

    And once again Tarek, our good muslim friend, I ask you to explain the hadith: “The day [of judgement] will not come until you fight the Jews and kill them”. Do good muslims such as yourself disregard this Hadith- if so, does that mean you are then not a good muslim? Are you then, like, a Reform muslim or Conservative muslim or Reconstructioninst muslim or something? Oy, islam is so confusing…

    Doda McCheesle on September 25, 2009 at 10:42 am

    Tarek M. Salah:

    I am waiting. And, I am still waiting to hear muzzies speak out AGAINST this militancy disguised as “religion”.

    I learned all I need to know about muzzies on 9/11. You can put your “religion” where the sun don’t shine.

    goldenmike4393 on September 25, 2009 at 11:23 am

Stay classy, Tarek M. Salah – your response is all the reason Debbie needs to expose the threat Islam poses to America. If you say she’s stereotyping and insulting you, why don’t you disassociate yourself from the terrorists who act in the name of Islam? Instead you denounce those who want to stop them. That’s why we don’t hear from “moderate” Muslims. And what happened today was not the work of a few “crazies” but an organized terrorist plot that could have killed hundreds if not thousands of Americans. But you don’t seem concerned about THEIR welfare.

Keep the hate alive!

NormanF on September 24, 2009 at 9:35 pm

If you scroll down his myspace site on the right you will see he is nothing more than a Drug Store Muslim who “Found” Allah in Prison who consistantly lied to his family about wanting to visit them.
Another pathetic loser who was too much of a sissy for the AB so for protection he joined Islam in jail. Another small mind with even lower self esteem who was easily manipulated by the It’s America’s fault prison Muslim nonsense. Like it’s Americas fault he mollested that kid, beat up that old woman, got caught with that glass D*** crack pipe in him mouth or whatever he did to get sent away.
what a no life loser who hates America yet wants as much american money as he can aquire.

Martin Fee on September 25, 2009 at 6:43 am

“Let’s get “in step” with I-slam. THE JOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSS are behind this plot.

Of course, the Jews~!~

goldenmike4393 on September 24, 2009 at 5:43 pm”


(catches breath) In closing, I give you a comment from a man who would make a REAL FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT, Alan Keyes…

Bob Porrazzo on September 25, 2009 at 7:17 am

Most muslim convrts are from prison. They usually do it because some boyfriend of theirs is NOI and they want them to be impressed. I guarantee he’s had some skin flute experience.

They also like the special diets they get as a muzzie. If the public knew how well off the cons have it they’d demand a rehaul of the system with demonstrations. Why do you think the recidivism rate is so bad. Because prison ain’t that bad. For scumbags it’s like going to college.

Joe on September 25, 2009 at 10:09 am

Perhaps the Burger King pictures are from his job- it says his job is “restaurant manager”… he probably manages to not burn the fries, or manages the garbage into the dumpster.

Doda McCheesle on September 25, 2009 at 10:44 am

Why should these muzzies get special meals in prison? They should be treated like everyone else in prison. As far as I know, no other group of people in prison get special treatment. And they shouldn’t be given Korans in prison – the Koran is a weapon of mass destruction.

Jarhead on September 25, 2009 at 12:04 pm

I work there.

They have a problem with swine, remember?

Freedom of religion, they get korans. They get their meals after the sun goes down for ramamdan as well. And it better be hot for them, how do you like that? I don’t like it either but the truth is they do get catered to a LOT. From what I’ve seen the prison chaplains are muzzies more often than not. I did get a special laugh at the employee appreciation cook out when the imam used his tongs to serve me up a nice bratwurst. Maybe he knew it was a beef one. Inmates can claim their vegans and they get the veggie diet tray. Makes me sick too but that’s the truth.

Joe on September 25, 2009 at 12:18 pm

All that stuff is why I dont think that inmates suffer enough for the crimes they commit. Even the assaultive ones get checked out by medical staff after they beat some one up and are subdued. I’ve seen prisoners complain they’ve sustained an injury to their finger after punching a guard. Capital punishment, capital punishment, capital punishment.

Look at the news today. Susan Atkins JUST died today at 61. At least she suffered from the brain cancer. Yeah, I do mean it.

Joe on September 25, 2009 at 12:22 pm


    I figured you would be able to enlighten us on even more stupid sh#t that the prisons do to cater to these Muslims, since you have let us know what you do right now. I bet these punks, especially the converts, are some of the worst behaved prisoners.

    Jarhead on September 25, 2009 at 12:25 pm

It is only a matter of time before these muzzys are successful, then we will have a Mumbai or a Belsan massacre. In Europe the police can no longer enter muzzy enclaves without a mass riot. It is enevitable that we shall see a backlash within the next couple of years, so to Tarek, get the hell out of my country, your religion of pieces is not welcome here in the USA.

Drakken on September 25, 2009 at 3:01 pm

screw you TAREK – if you think being a muzzie and following that wonderful “religion of peace” is so grand then buy a one-way ticket to the middle east – muzzie country of your choice – and stay there….decent law-abiding respectful tolerant reasonable rational people, dont want you here.

BIG IRISH on September 25, 2009 at 6:43 pm

Tarek do us a favor and go to NYC and confront RevolutionIslam and the Islamic Thinkers Society and correct their “wrong” beliefs of Islam.

Clean your own damn house and leave Debbie alone.

I’m loving the fact a guy named Moses schooled a guy named Tarek!

Tarek you’re fighting an uphill battle. You are the sons of Ishmael. Even God said Ishmael’s descendants will be “wild as asses”.

All my life all I’ve seen from Muslims is horrid behavior. Even the nice ones I’ve met were radical, push comes to shove.

Muslims all over the world passed out candy when Americans were burning or their bodies exploding into pieces on the streets of NY and the fields of Pennsylvania.

Debbi Schlussel is a hard ass. She needs to be, times are hard and we need hard people. Do I agree with her on everything, no! But she’s an American and I would fight for her if need be. As I think she would for me.

You’re failing miserably as are most Muslims. I even heard of Muslims being persecuted in Michigan because their sons are fighting for America. Are you protecting them from intolerant Muslims?

All that you have, electricity, running water, roof over your head, prosperity unequaled throughout the world and precious freedom. All provided by infidels.

I believe war is coming here. War in our streets.When the fight comes I know who side Ms. Schlussel will be on.

But you Tarek you have to prove yourself. Who will you be fighting with and who will you be fighting for, Tarek?

USMC on September 25, 2009 at 7:07 pm

Muslims like Tarek are called africaca or african shit by their Arab masters. Allah the greatest liar and deceiver as sura 3;54 says, called black women stupid tabari 1:280, black men less than a donkey’s penis ishaq 243, blacks were made black to be slaves to whites and then hellfire, other words, nothings.

How can any black man or any person who is human join evil. PURE EVIL IN A RELIGION THAT SAYS KILL NON-MUSLIMS 33,000 TIMES.
