Memphis Man Arrested: Accused of Making Bomb Threats & Threatening to Start "Holy War"

MEMPHIS, TN – Tonight, Mohamed Ibrahim is out after posting $100 bond. Earlier in the day, he was arrested after police say he walked into several Memphis businesses and threatened to blow them up.

Court records show Ibrahim was also telling people he was Muslim, and wanted to start a jihad, or holy war, in Memphis.

Police say when they arrested him, he had a butcher knife hidden in one of his jacket sleeves.

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2009/12/misunderstander-of-islam-with-butcher-knife-he-was-a-muslim-and-wanted-to-start-a-jihad-or-holy-war.html

“Misunderstander of Islam with butcher knife: “He was Muslim, and wanted to start a jihad, or holy war, in Memphis””
(December 29, 2009)

SNIPPET: “Now he is free on $100 bond. Clearly this far-seeing and right-thinking judge understands that Islam is a Religion of Peace™, and that therefore this man only intended to butcher his sinful inclinations, as part of his inner spiritual struggle to conform his life to the will of Allah.

And now that he is out, is anyone paying any attention to how his inner spiritual struggle is going? Or is this another Misunderstander of Islam that we’re only going to hear about again if he misunderstands jihad at the expense of the life of an Infidel or two?”

Looks like a real nice, friendly guy. Not. I would be backing slowly away and making sure my jacket was clear of my holster.

May just be your average homicidal maniac though. Doesn't sound like a typical MO for a jihadist.

I’ll love to see CAIR weigh in complaining about how doing anything about murderous Muzzies ‘creates’ a climate of fear, ignoring that it’s the Muzzies who are trying to do so.

When I worked for the Dept. Of Corrections about half of the inmate population was black. About half of those black inmates claimed to be muslims.

America has bigger problems in this regard than even the freepers understand.

I agree. What worthless Leftist judge called for such a ridiculously low bond? This Muzzie was threatening to kill people after all. He should have been prevented from returning to society until after the trial, if then.

“Man faces terrorism charge after threats
Arrested after saying he’d bomb 7 businesses”

By Ryan Poe
Posted December 26, 2009 at midnight

SNIPPET: “A police officer pulled over the suspect’s black PT Cruiser on Poplar and arrested Ibrahim, who was “very nervous” and appeared as if “he was trying to hide something,” the report stated.

The suspect tried to kick out the windows of a patrol car during the arrest and police said they had to use pepper spray to subdue him.

The FBI found three Islamic cassette tapes and miscellaneous papers in the suspect’s car, which were removed for additional study, according to the affidavit. Police charged Ibrahim with commission of an act of terrorism, filing false reports and disorderly conduct. He posted $100 bond and was released, pending his court date on Monday.”

I am under the impression, strictly from news reports, that many inmates convert to Islam while incarcerated.

“When I worked for the Dept. Of Corrections about half of the inmate population was black. About half of those black inmates claimed to be muslims.”

Well, I was born in Memphis in 1944, and spent all but the last five years in the area.
In my early years, the city was 40% black.
I never heard of a Muslim there, but when the population flipped to majority black, the city was downhill from there, and no doubt they may be sucking in what use to be the black, but very Christian.

When I started working at the prison the first job they assigned me to was Housing Unit Officer. I was in charge of around 120 inmates. After the 9pm count I was locked inside, by myself, with them. I had no choice but to figure out who was who and what was going on in their world. To my surprise, more blacks than whites had at least a basic understanding of the Christian faith. However, the trend seemed to be that the blacks looked at Christianity as being a “white religion.” I believe many of them claimed to be muslim as an act of rebellion against whites and society in general.
When I made Sgt and was put in charge of “the hole” I found out that many of them were not sincere about their supposed conversion to Islam. On the days when we had bacon and eggs for breakfast quite a few of those “muslim” inmates that had a PF (pork free) next to their name on the board near my desk were willing to offend allah for the cause of fresh bacon. LOL
At the same time there were serious converts. Putting terrorists in with American inmates is a ridiculous and drastic mistake. Most of the American prison population can not be rehabilitated. More than 7 out of every 10 inmates released will return. These people are career criminals who refuse to do good and many them will readily accept the anti-American doctrine from their muslim brothers.

"...Jeez talk about 7th century technology..."

As I am outdoors and active during most daylight hours, I find cassettes handy to record Beck and Rush: I play them back on weekends, when things are especially slow on the talk-radio circuit.

If anyone needs rap music in their 70s-vintage cars, I can record 8-tracks as well!
