    Hey guess what?? The "terrorist" isn't a Bhuddist! Who knew?

    DECEMBER 8An Illinois man plotted to set off hand grenades at shopping malls in a holiday season terror campaign that was thwarted by federal investigators. According to an FBI affidavit, Derrick Shareef, 22, told a confidential source that he wanted to commit violent acts of jihad, and spoke of killing judges and blowing up public buildings. A copy of the affidavit can be found below. Shareef told the snitch that he sought to disrupt Christmas, adding that, I swear by Allah man, Im down for it too, Im down for the cause, Im down to live for the cause and die for the cause, man. The document does not further describe the supposed cause of Shareef, who was named today in a federal felony complaint. Shareef is quoted telling the FBI source, I probably would have eventually ended up stabbing the **** outta some Jews or something. Just stabbing them ******s with a steak knife...Because during that war with Hezbollah, man, I had already started to look at synagogues out here...

    It occurs to me that this wonderful young man may have been hanging out with Kramer and Mel lately!

    All kidding aside, we may never know how much he was emboldened by Mr. Gibson's ranting. (That is not to say Gibson should be legally liable for this guy's crime. But Gibson ought to be thinking about the moral consequences of his actions.)

    This sounds like a lone "nutcase" full of hate against a group or groups of people.

    I've often thought that a mall will be the next target of some kind of attack; and I wish there were more security procedures in malls.

    I'm glad the FBI was on to him; I take it it was from a witness, and not from surrveillance of phone lines, etc.

    SIL advises the high was 10 degrees there yesterday. That could make a lot of people homicidal.

    Sounds like pure nutcase - anti-everyone else than himself. Probably became a muslim to endorse his hatred of others, identifying with the terrorists.

    It doesn't say, but I'd bet his 'aquaintance' was muslim as well - because I don't see this guy having any friends who don't 100% agree with him - and he's the one who immediately turned this guy in to the FBI.

    Right. And, we can expect public condemnation of this "lone nutcase" performing jihad in the name of allah, from the local Mosques, exactly.....never.

    Google the name "Nuradin M. Abdi". This isn't the first time this has happened.

    But, you will hear something soon from CAIR on the dreaded backlash against all muslims over this. They'll release a statement wringing their hands over how this will affect THEM.

    Just wait for it.

    Actually, what I can expect, just like before, is near zero coverage of the condemnation from the local mosques - there have been, and continue to be plenty of such statements from muslims, and they quite simply do not get covered. But one muslim makes an extremist statement, and it's covered everywhere.

    Yeah, there's reason to be very aware of what muslim extremists are saying - but it's not right to say there are no condemnations from moderate muslims - there are plenty - they just aren't covered hardly at all.

    Then, how do you know about them, and where can I get this news of which you speak?

    Unless you're talking about this guy, who was banned from his mosque and had his life threatened for daring to speak out against terrorism:
