Is al Qaeda Threatening a Nuclear Attack?
December 23, 2003
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- by Jeremy Reynalds
A letter to the Bush Administration containing a list of demands from an alleged representative of the Islamic Jihad Brigade Black Death Squad says failure to fulfil those orders will have deadly consequences.
The document reads in part (sic), "We will give you a prior few minutes notice before our blessed attack so that you will be able to watch your destruction with your own satellite, as we would be by then have passed the skies of the seventh sky to heaven and your nation to the fires of hell."
While this document, written by alleged al Qaeda operative Daleel Almojahid, appears to indicate some sort of nuclear attack, it does seem to mirror closely other terrorist information that is being broadly circulated. On Friday Reuters reported the White House said it had warned security personnel to be on the look out for terror attacks during the Christmas holiday season.
U.S. authorities said they were concerned by what they called the volume of terrorist threats at home and overseas.
"The Department of Homeland Security has sent out several bulletins...(to) security officials and law enforcement personnel, urging all to continue be on heightened state of alert especially as we enter the busy holiday season," Reuters reported Scott McClellan, President Bush's spokesman said.
Almojahid wrote that even though the Bush Administration knows well the demands being made by al Qaeda (sic), "We will put them down again so that the world will forgive us for what will happen soon due to your arrogance and childish acts of dictatorship and your love of being under the Jewish rule being slaved under them under all kinds of names."
Alleged al Qaeda demands made in the letter include a demand that the United States cease "invading" Islamic lands anywhere in the world and return all "stolen" Muslim money, "in gold not in any kind of money note."
Other demands read (sic), "The returning of the old borders known to you and we press on the northern borders, the release of all our prisoners in your jails whom you know and we know only. The dismantle of the so called (United Nations and its council) in an international decision."
Almojahid said his group understands the importance of water and oil and is willing for the current situation to stay as it is, with a qualifier. "The pricing of oil is left to us and we promise you to make it available at a reasonable price for poor and for rich nations."
Almojahid wrote that while the situation is critical it is not too late for the Bush Administration to change the course of impending disaster. However, if the Administration fails to give in to terrorist demands, then his group's apparently predetermined plans will go into effect.
He commented (sic), "We have given you the solution, so either you are with us or against us ... But we know that you are not with us but you will be forced to be (and we have warned). It is not in our morals to attack you with such a big attack without a warning. We won't do what you did to us times and times before ..."
Almojahid continued (sic), "And the outcome of the attack will be unbelievable and unexpected to you ... Any wrong move the administration takes in directing its policy will lead you to the (cave of darkness)."
Almojahid apologized to the American people and the European community for what he claimed will be an imminent attack, writing "The coming operation ... will ... destroy them forever, although we apologize from now to the human race from the hardship that will affect them as an aftermath to the attack. It is a less hardship for us than to see continents slaved, we apologize in advance to the American people and to the European communities but you have stood hand in hand with your governments and let the Jews take control of the rest of the world."
Almojahid appeared to imply that there are al Qaeda sympathizers scattered around America in strategic places. He wrote (sic) "We can tell you that we are people from you and with in you, planning with you and have knowledge of all your planes. We warn you that time is running fast so fast that it's getting harder to turn out the led fire in the wire."
Almojahid made an urgent plea for quick action by the Bush Administration, writing " It is insane avoiding reading the following words without having a clear, wise and fast decision. As soon as possible because time is a critical element in the coming attack and is more important than any time in human history. We can tell you that the wire has been led up and it's in its final stages and nothing will stop it but God and the wisdom of the Arab rules and the non Arab rules,
In an additional e-mail to this reporter he added, "It's time to start taking some back up to save your life. I send you this in respect to the words we have shared."
Failing that, we should recall that the last time the U.S.A. dealt with religious, suicidal attacks upon the armed forces of our country, we ended up dropping two "A" bombs. Two were dropped, because one alone could not deter the Japanese.
Mecca and Medina would be logical targets. Could our country contemplate something as horrific as some have advocated on this forum, i.e. Nuc both holy Islamic cities to communicate the message to Al-Quada that destruction of two criminal regimes have thus far failed to do?
Well, let's look at it from another perspective. Instead of thinking the unthinkable about Muslim innocents dying at our hands, perhaps the proper question is this: Are American women and children worth less than those in Mecca and Medina? Than those in Syria or Iran, or Egypt?
If Al-Quada succeeds in killing hundreds of thousands or even millions of American innocents with a weapon of mass destruction, I hope to God that we have responsible leadership at America's helm, that indeed the unthinkable has been thought, that America is willing to demonstrate that the brothers, sisters, cousins, nephews, nieces, parents, and close friends of those Muslims who comprise Al-Quada are not more important than the dead American's they've murdered.
Logically, should such an attack occur, there is no responsible alternative to retaliation, to a demonstration of American resolve. The U.S. government will have no alternative but to offer international proof that as much we are willing to risk American lives and take casualties to free Iraqi and Afghani Muslims, to risk civilian lives by acting with restraint in the face of murderous attacks, that we are also willing to defend American citizens to the last Muslim, should it come to that.
MFH, those details have escaped me with the Christmas goings-on around here. Is there a news story/thread about this?? Thanks.
THEN--Launch a nuclear FIRST STRIKE attack on the Afghani mountain range where Bin Laden was last traced and glassify it so sufficiently that even goats can't stand up on it anymore...Let's see Al Qaeda out-do THAT!
Oh...Dean, Clark, Gore, Hitlery, Kerry, etc get first dibs on the parking spaces we'd create doing it...Call it "Throwing them a GLOWING bone for Christmas", because with such a tough showing of protection of Americans that Bush would make doing it, it'll be the ONLY thing the Dummycraps get for 2004 and beyond!
I hope your confidence is well-placed.
He wrote (sic) "We can tell you that we are people from you and with in you, planning with you and have knowledge of all your planes.
And some people wonder why I carry a gun.
The dismantle of the so called (United Nations and its council) in an international decision."
...Abu Hajer, who is on Saudi Arabia's most-wanted list, referred to the dispute over the attacks inside Saudi Arabia in an interview with an Al-Qa'ida online magazine, The Voice of Jihad: "Jihad members and Mujahideen sympathizers were divided: Some said we must attack the invading forces that defile the land of the two holy places [i.e. the Arabian Peninsula], and must cause the Americans to become preoccupied with themselves and their bases so they won't leave them to crush the countries and lands of the Muslims, country by country.
 A reference to the war against the Christians, termed in this context "Byzantines" following a Hadith that is attributed to the Prophet Muhammad regarding the future battle.
Excerpt: ...Sheikh Al-Qaradhawi qualified his statement: "I maintain that the conquest this time will not be by the sword but by preaching and ideology "
Let's hope not. How stupid would it be to burn the trump card?
If worse really came to worst--an all-out war between the West and Islam--we'd capture Mecca and Medina. The Muslims are required to visit Mecca. Destroying it would only frustrate them. If instead they had to obtain American permission to perform the Hajj, you can bet that they'd smile past American checkpoints rather than risk being sent home unhajjed. And attacks against Americans would be few and far between if they knew that it would result in a loss of access to Islam's holy sites.
If there's a major attack against America, the smoothest course would be to foment an Islamic revolution in Saudi Arabia. Then, of course, we'd have no choice but to send troops to "stabilize the situation"--and since the Iraq war, we have just the materiel in place to do it.
No, Mecca isn't a threat. However, if these people wish to carry out a "holy war", then they must understand that there will be casualties of a holy nature. Hence, Mecca disappears.
The destruction of Mecca may force the average law-abiding muslim into action to overthrow their governments that sponsor terrorism. Or it may turn all of them against us. Either way, nothing will be the same again if we are forced to vaporize their holy city.
Whatever happens, they must be forced to understand that we will stop at nothing to achieve victory. So far, we have restrained ourselves to an incredible degree. That will change with the loss of a city.
Remember: we lost 2500 people - only 48 of whom were civilians - at Pearl Harbor. As a result, we fought Japan for 3 1/2 years and vaporized two of their cities. On 9/11, we lost 3000 - almost all civilians, including women and children - and as yet have not taught the Muslim world the lesson we taught Japan. Personally, I don't think I would have had the courage Bush had to not launch a nuclear strike.
Yeah, I think you're probably right. No real terrorist org would be posting it's plans like that to a Yahoo group.
These idiots have many times accused of waging a new crusade. They have no idea.
IMHO, I think they have to hit us without warning, and with no particular meaningful U.S Holiday or event in mind to coincide with their attack. OTOH, they would, if they could, but they can't so they won't.
Keep in mind, what was so important about the last attack date of Sept ll? Nothing.
