US: Jihad in Boston?

Attention all shoppers: Boston Muslims planned to open fire at mall

BOSTON — A pharmacy college graduate made a defiant appearance in federal court Wednesday, hours after being charged with conspiring with two other men in a terror plot to kill two prominent U.S. politicians and carry out a holy war by attacking shoppers in U.S. malls and American troops in Iraq.  Tarek Mehanna — a graduate of the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy in Boston, where his father is a professor — conspired with Ahmad Abousamra, who authorities say is now in Syria, and an unnamed man, who is cooperating in the investigation, according to authorities. His daddy said “he would never do a thing like that…”   More from AFP

“Tarek Mehanna, of 6 Fairhaven Circle, is accused of conspiring with Ahmad Abousamra and others to obtain the automatic weapons needed to carry out a mall ambush in which they planned to open fire at random.” And apparently no one among the Muslims of Boston took him aside and explained to him that he was getting Islam all wrong, wrong, wrong.

“Feds: Sudbury man planned terrorist attacks at shopping malls,” by Laura Crimaldi for the Boston Herald, October 21 (thanks to Islam In Action):

A 27-year-old man from Sudbury has been arrested on charges he planned terrorism attacks inside and outside the United States, including a plot to use automatic weapons to open fire at shoppers and emergency responders in shopping mall attacks, federal prosecutors said today.

Tarek Mehanna, of 6 Fairhaven Circle, is accused of conspiring with Ahmad Abousamra and others to obtain the automatic weapons needed to carry out a mall ambush in which they planned to open fire at random, said Acting U.S. Attorney Michael K. Loucks.

The plot included plans to fire at emergency responders, but was abandoned because the men could not obtain the weapons, authorities said.

Prosecutors also allege the men discussed participating in violent Jihad against American interests and their desire to die on the “battlefield.”…

Debbie Schlussel: Tarek Mehanna, Yet Another Privileged, Homegrown Islamic Terrorist

Tarek Mehanna is yet another example of how Islam and its inclination to destroy us knows no borders or nationalities or socio-economic strata.  And how it’s not “them” hijacking the religion, but rather, the religion hijacking them.

Read the federal criminal complaint against Mehanna.

Mehanna is a U.S. citizen, college grad, and from a wealthy Boston-area Muslim-American family. Oh, and he was such a loyal American that this Muslim took joy in repeatedly watching video of an American soldier being mutilated to death in Iraq.

  1. “Nothin’ to see here, folks…move along now, nothin’ to see here. Go about your business” said the nice town marshall, completely naive about Islam and its followers.

  2. If the town marshall wasn’t naive about islam, he would have first
    prepared a carefully worded statement affirming that islam is peaceful
    & this has nothing to do with islam, and work with the mosque to allay
    fears of a “backlash”.
