as these evildoers were holding his children hostage. Khalid Shaikh Mohammed corroborated Zubaydah¶s information regarding our plan to destroy several U.S. gas stations by simultaneously detonating explosives in the stations¶ underground storage tanks. The operative Khalid Shaikh Mohammed named, (or whose identity was found on his computer) however, was an operative who once tried to jump off a bridge in Columbus, Ohio, named Iyman Faris. IYMAN FARIS Iyman Faris was born in Kashmir on June 4, 1969, entered the United States in May 1994 and became a United States citizen in December 1999. He was employed as an independent truck driver. In late 2000 he traveled with Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, a long-time friend, from Pakistan to Afghanistan. Faris had known Khalid Shaikh Mohammed since the Afghani Jihad, and maintained a close relationship with him. After arriving in Afghanistan with Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, Faris was introduced to Usama bin Laden at an al-Qaeda training camp. During this meeting in late 2000, one of bin Laden¶s men asked Faris about ³ultralight´ airplanes. Al-Qaeda was looking to procure an escape airplane that could be placed aboard a cargo plane loaded with fuel and explosives. This would allow jihadi to remain alive after they completed their mission so that they could continue to fulfill their obligation to make Jihad. Faris responded that he too was interested in ultralights, and he was asked to obtain information concerning them. Faris had previously taken a gyrocopter simulator flight in the United States. Two months later, Faris performed a computer search at an Internet café in Karachi, Pakistan, and obtained information concerning ultralights. Faris provided a hard copy of this information to Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.1 After the September 11th 2001 Raids, FBI agents in Ohio interviewed Faris and his former wife, Geneva Bowling because he was a young Pakistani who had a hazardous-material license. The FBI failed to examine the records of his previous travel held by the State Department or look the visa stamps on his American passport. Nor did they follow up on his subsequent travel that included a trip to Karachi in late December 2001. Instead, the FBI chose to roundup 700 other men of Middle Eastern descent, solely on the basis of visa violations and their ethnic backgrounds, and detain them indefinitely, allow the Correction Officer¶s where they were incarcerated to become judge, jury and executioner while Faris roamed free! This was not a so-called ³terrorist´ investigation ± this was collective punishment.

In Karachi Khalid Shaikh Mohammed asked Faris to visit a travel agency on his behalf and obtain extensions on several airline tickets to Yemen. To accomplish this task, Faris dressed in disguise as a member of the non-violent Islamic revivalist movement Tablighi Jamaat. John Walker Lindh's path to Islam led to Tabligh Jamaat missionaries in 1999. In early 2002, Faris visited Khalid Shaikh Mohammed in Karachi, Pakistan. Khalid Shaikh Mohammed introduced Faris to Abu Zubaydah. A few weeks later, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed asked Faris to go with his son to deliver a bag containing money and cell phones to Zubaydah. At another meeting, Zubaydah asked Faris what he could do for al-Qaeda. Faris and Zubaydah discussed Faris¶s work as a truck driver in the United States. Faris described his trucking routes and deliveries for airport cargo planes. Zubaydah advised that he was interested in cargo planes because they would hold ³more weight and more fuel.´ Zubaydah then informed Faris that al-Qaeda was planning two simultaneous operations in New York City and Washington, D.C. Zubaydah spoke with Faris about destroying the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City by severing suspension cables on the bridge. Zubaydah tasked Faris to procure the necessary equipment for the operation and described the equipment as ³gas cutters´ but instructed Faris to refer to them in code as ³gas stations´ in any subsequent communications sent to Zubaydah. Zubaydah also explained that al-Qaeda was planning to derail trains. Zubaydah assigned Faris to obtain the necessary tools for the train-derailment plot as well. In messages to Zubaydah, those tools were to be referred to as ³mechanics shops.´ Faris indicated that he had email and was familiar with the Internet. Zubaydah instructed him never to access email immediately after logging on but only after opening other Internet sites first.2 Upon returning to the United States from Pakistan in April 2002, Faris researched blowtorches and the Brooklyn Bridge on the Internet. After his Internet research, Faris approached an acquaintance with a technical background, and asked him about obtaining blowtorches. Between April 2002 and March 2003, Faris sent several coded messages through his relative Majid Khan of Baltimore, Maryland, to Khalid Shaikh Mohammed in Pakistan, indicating that Faris was still trying to obtain ³gas stations´ and ³mechanics shops´ (i.e., he had been unsuccessful in his ongoing attempts to locate the equipment). In March 2003, Faris inquired about Zubaydah¶s arrest through a message to another here in the United States. In late 2002, Faris traveled to New York City. After examining the Brooklyn Bridge, he concluded that the plot to destroy the bridge by severing the cables was very unlikely to succeed because of the bridge¶s security and structure. In early 2003, after scouting the bridge, Faris sent a message to Khalid Shaikh Mohammed that stated, ³the weather is too hot.´ This message meant that the bridge plot was unlikely to succeed.

Faris was supposed to single-handedly cut the support wires and destroy the Brooklyn Bridge but he refused to carry out his mission. Traffic never ceases on that structure. Can you imagine a motorist observing an Arabic looking fellow in the wee hours of the morning pointing a blowtorch at one of the hundreds of cables suspending the Brooklyn Bridge? This would be no way for Faris to become a big wheel in alQaeda. Faris was secretly indicted in March 2003, pleaded guilty to helping us, and began making numerous cell phone calls on behalf of the FBI. In October 2003 U.S. District Court Judge Leonie M. Brinkema sentenced Faris to 20 years in prison. Before sentencing Faris, Judge Brinkema denied Faris¶ request that he be allowed to withdraw his guilty plea as he had made up a tale to confuse the FBI and secure a book deal.
PARACHA Faris gave up the name of Majid Khan as a player in this operation. Majid Khan, however, had already been captured in Pakistan before Khalid Shaikh Mohammed rolled over on him. Majid Khan would in turn give up Uzair Paracha, 23, who was arrested in March 2003 in New York by the FBI and held as a material witness. Uzair Paracha, a Pakistani who was involved in real estate and whose father Saifullah Paracha owns an import clothing business is accused of helping Brothers gain entry into the United States and of being part of an effort to obtain chemical weapons, his attorney, al-Qaeda house attorney Anthony Ricco, said. The FBI complaint against Uzair Paracha accused him of trying to facilitate Majid Khan¶s re-entry into the United States: Approximately two weeks before Uzair Paracha left Pakistan for the United States, [February 2003] Uzair Paracha met [Majid Khan] whom he learned wanted Uzair Paracha to perform tasks for him in the United States. Uzair Paracha met [Majid Khan] at the Karachi office of the business by which Uzair Paracha is employed. [Majid Khan] was with Ammar al-Baluchi. Uzair Paracha was advised that [Majid Khan] and Ammar al-Baluchi wanted to invest approximately $200,000 in the business for which Uzair Paracha worked in Karachi. Uzair Paracha was advised not to ask any questions about the money because [Majid Khan] and Ammar al-Baluchi were supporters of Usama bin Laden. Uzair Paracha believed the funds to be al-Qaeda money, and [Majid Khan] and Ammar al-Baluchi wanted to keep the funds liquid and to be able to retrieve them on short notice. Uzair Paracha believed that if he did not perform the tasks that [Majid Khan] was requesting him to undertake in the
United States, then [Majid Khan] and Ammar al-Baluchi might not invest the money in the business.3 Uzair Paracha was asked to make it look like Majid Khan was still in America by using his credit card, closing a post office box. He was also asked to obtain a travel document for Khan from INS so that Khan could travel back to the U.S. Uzair was sentenced to 30 years in prison. The real fish the FBI was out to fry was Saifullah Paracha a noted businessman kidnapped from a Bangkok-bound Thai Airways flight on July 5, 2003 and detained in Bagram Prison outside Kabul on suspicion of his ties to Usama bin Laden. Paracha explained, I reached Bangkok International Airport on July 6, 2003 and at the airport I was illegally, immorally arrested back hand and leg cuffed, black big mask on my head up to neck, was thrown on the floor of station wagon facing down. I am heart patient, diabetic, high-blood pressure, skin disorder, gout ± it could have been fatal. There was no human consideration at all. From airport I was taken to unknown place for a few days and kept eyes covered, ears cover, hand cuffed, leg cuffed. After a few days I was transported by plane to Afghanistan, under extremely severe bad conditions. I was kept in isolation from July 2003 to September 20, 2004 and since September 20, 2004 I am in isolation cell in Guantánamo Bay Island.4 Paracha¶s wife Farhat filed a petition demanding her husband be given his rights afforded to him by the Pakistani Constitution. Farhat Paracha suspected that her husband¶s Jewish-American business partner, Charles Anteby, was behind his disappearance and had lured him to Thailand.5 Saifullah Paracha was developing a satellite TV station to produce research based Islamist programs to contain the misconception of Europe about Islam. He said: ³We will tell them the reality what Islam is because the Islamic programs produced even by Arab countries lack research and development. In Europe majority of people were showing interest in Islam and the quality and research-based programmes would induce them to accept Islam.´6 Brother Saifullah Paracha was convicted of thought crime - contemplating using his clothing export business to ship chemical weapons to the United States. This is how he answered the accusations during his appearance before the American Military Tribunal,

I have never been supportive of the Taliban or al-Qaeda or its partners. I have never been involved in an al-Qaeda plan to smuggle explosives into the United States. No company I owned dealt with chemicals. Marason (ph) Business is a publicly traded company, and I own 96% of the shares. They manufacture bags, sugar, cement, and fertilizer; that industry is in Bahrain city that I established more than 10 years ago. The governor of Pakistan offered a good incentive to put the business there about one million dollars came from the European Union and the U.S. to establish it there to stop the poppy industry there. The government put the money somewhere else, but I invested a million dollars in that myself. It was in a remote area, and was not profitable. It been closed; it is a failed business. I wrote the American Embassy that this could provide employment there to reduce the poppy business; it can never be eliminated, but it could be controlled. I have been trying to do this and I know a lot of government officials. I believe in the Qu¶ran -- that killing one innocent person, is equal to killing all humanity. I believe on that, and practice that. I have already given the FBI details of my businesses in Pakistan, and they have not found anything. I never held money for safekeeping for any al-Qaeda operative. I never gave any research for any company for investment possibilities at the request of an al-Qaeda operative. I have never associated with any high-level al-Qaeda operatives. I never recommended that nuclear weapons should be used against US troops to al-Qaeda, or where the nuclear weapons would be available; I don't know, sir, where these are available. Is a nuclear weapon something I could buy off the shelf? Can you buy it from Tony Blair? Is that something to say to anybody? I have never assisted an al-Qaeda member or family to find a place to rent; however, I did assist some people who said they were Pakistanis. I showed one Pakistani the area I lived. And I showed another Pakistani how to find a place from the classifieds in the newspaper. I never offered al-Qaeda media facilities or translation; I do have a news agency I own. The work is to provide news to newspapers and magazines, and it is called Universal News Private Limited; I gave this information to my interrogators. Al-Qaeda never invested money in the company owned by myself. I have never discussed this with any al-Qaeda facilitator about getting chemicals and explosives into a coalition partner's national boundaries«I did meet with Usama bin Laden in 1999 and 2000, two times but I never met two high-level al-Qaeda officials that were wanted men, sir. I knew they were handpicking the media area, and that is why I met with him. When Hali Shir Abbar (Ittihad7 commander Shir Alam a Afghani parliamentary candidate and as of mid-2005 a senior commander in the defense ministry), was arrested, that was the first time they had anything to do with Usama bin Laden; I knew they were handpicking the

media area, and that is why I met with him. When I met Usama, he delivered the Qu¶ran, and said he was a prophet. He said very nice things, very impressive. I asked him to speak about the terrorism program for an English program. We intended to make an unclassified program for my television station, and I claim that if people watched my station, that they will know the difference between Christianity and Islam. I discussed making a program on the Qu'ran to be showed on various channels. I produce programs, and we have a studio in Pakistan. We have the most modern equipment in Pakistan. I lived in New York, and I had my program there for the Pakistani community. I went to Pakistan in 1986. I lived in New York from 1971 -1986; I studied in New York at the Institute of Technology. I have offered my services to interrogators. I can help to control terrorism and I need no reward for that. By the law of the Lord Almighty, I have written many papers on Afghanistan and terrorism and given them to the interrogators and they were pleased to receive them. They discussed with me for hours and days about-how to control terrorism. I am just giving you a brief background. This could be handled more effectively; we could stop terrorism, and terrorism would die itself. That's all, sir. Q. Do you not consider Usama bin Laden to be al-Qaeda? A. I never saw any definition of al-Qaeda. The first time I heard this was from President Bush who said al-Qaeda. I went to Afghanistan not to meet Usama, but people took me to help Afghan people with education. I was the one who convinced the Taliban government to have a school; I said we would put up the money and give you credit for that. Someone else scheduled to meet Usama took me along with him. I don't have any contact; I was made to meet him, and that's it. Q. What were the circumstances of the second meeting [with Usama bin Laden]? A. I was a member of one organization of Tanzeem-i-Islami. The chief of this organization8 was officially scheduled to meet [Usama bin Laden] by the ambassador of Pakistan and the ambassador of Afghanistan. We were about 18-20 people in that delegation. We were with them, but I never talked to him personally. Q. If I could just pursue one line I was going to ask [earlier). Is $500,000 a lot for a TV show?
. Dr. Israr Ahmad, founder of Tanzeem-i-Islami, proposed to General Busharaff in an open letter to begin a programme of survival with: 1) fulfilling the prerequisites of the Just Social System of Islam through eradication of all forms of Riba, feudalism and absentee landlordism; 2) Islamising the constitution through tying Article 227 of the present constitution with Objectives Resolution's Article 2B and appointing qualified religious scholars as judges of the Federal Shariat Court.
A. No, sir. The bank was willing to give me a credit line of $3 million, and I gave the name of the bank to the interrogators. It was a prime bank in Karachi, Pakistan, but I was primarily dealing with Jabbar, and he has an office in New Jersey. Q. Why was your son detained? A. Yes, sir. When I was in Pakistan, a man known as Ammar al-Baluchi met me in the area of Karachi I live. He introduced us both, my son and I, to a man that used to live in Baltimore named Majid Khan. We were sitting and eating at a table, and he mentioned he had an immigration problem, and he wanted to keep his bank account active. My son was working on the website for the apartments in the U.S., and he asked my son to help, and I said of course he can help while he was there [in the U.S.]. Those documents were recovered by my son, and they say he is a terrorist, I don't know. Q. Majid Khan said he had an immigration problem and he wanted to keep his bank account active in the U.S.? A. Yes, sir. He wanted to keep his bank account active because he couldn't get back to the U.S. because of an immigration problem. There's a procedure, and once your visa number is approved, it goes to Islamabad. There is a procedure. Q. What do you know about Ammar al-Baluchi and Majid Khan? How would you know them, and why would you provide this business or financial support? A. I met them through Ammar al-Baluchi; Ammar al-Baluchi was his associate, but he introduced himself as being from another province of Pakistan. I have his identification also; they all dress and act like Pakistanis, so he introduced himself as a Pakistani. Q. Do you have a fall definition of al-Qaeda? What it is? A. I don't sir. Q. Would you be surprised to hear Usama bin Laden founded al-Qaeda, and al-Qaeda includes people from all over the world? People from America, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Philippines, and people from wherever? A. Sir, how could anybody know who al-Qaeda is? Tribunal President Response: Good question. That's a very good question.
PROTOCOL 4. WE SHALL EXPLOIT THE WEAKNESS OF THE JEWS AND THEIR DESIRE FOR PEACE ARAFAT THE ELDER Absent from this meeting is perhaps the most adroit politician among us, a crypto-Islamist who was commander of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade and al-Fatah. He was the Father of the Palestinian nation, and a distinguished member of the Learned Elders of Islam, Mohammed Abder Rauf Arafat alKudwa al-Husseini, better known to you as Yassir Arafat. Chairman Arafat was born in Al-Quds of Palestinian9 parents. Chairman Arafat joined the Muslim Brotherhood while studying in exile in Egypt, where he became their president and he was forced to leave Egypt when authorities there made this discovery. He was a practicing Muslim, performed the Haj to Mecca, wore a pendant engraved with a verse from the Qu¶ran, and was a leader of the Islamist Movement, despite public statements he has made to confuse and befuddle the enemy. The Palestinian Authority adopted an official constitution based on Shari'ah: Article (7) of the official Palestinian State Constitution states that ³The principles of Islamic Shari'ah are a major source for legislation.´10 In a private speech this is what Brother Arafat said: We Palestinians will take over everything, including all of Jerusalem«All the rich Jews who will get compensation will travel to America«We of the Palestinian Liberation Organization will now concentrate all our efforts on splitting Israel psychologically into two camps...You understand that we plan to eliminate the State of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian State«I have no use for Jews; they are and remain Jews. We now need all the help we can get from you in our battle for a united Palestine under total Arab-Muslim domination!11 This speech reflected Al-Husseini¶s lineage. Arafat the Elder descended from the Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and he has stated: ³Fighters in this revolution that began thirty years ago are the sons and grandsons of Abdelqader alHusseini, (the Grand Mufti¶s nephew martyred in 1948) Izz Ad-Din Al-Qassam,12 Ali Hassan Salameh13 and other leaders of the Jihad«´ In postwar testimony a senior aide to Adolf Eichmann testified that the Grand Mufti visited Auschwitz in disguise and reproached the Germans for not being more determined in exterminating the Jews.14 While Al-Husseini the Elder was living in Berlin he offered his hosts plans for a concentration camp for Jews near Nablus in Palestine

modeled after Auschwitz.15 But do not forget, currently, our official line is that the holocaust was exaggerated, or did not happen at all. In this way Muslims rob the Jews of their excuse for occupying Palestine, which is that they could not survive as a minority people in Europe. YASSIR ARAFAT: THE FATHER OF JIHAD WITH THE UNITED SATAN Long before the Islamists organized for Jihad - as early as 1973 - the P.L.O, or Black September or al-Fatah, whatever name you wish to call us, struck at Israeli targets in the United States. Our major sponsor back then was Iraq. On January 12, 1973 using an Iraqi passport and driver¶s license a hero of Palestine, Khaled Mohammed el-Jessem, using the name Khalid Dahham Al-Jawari (also spelled AlJawary) entered the U.S. through Canada. El-Jassem¶s mission was to hijack an aircraft then fly it by himself. Before this we would board airliners and force the pilot to fly wherever we ordered him. Between January and March 1973, el-Jessem applied for flight instruction at the Teterboro Flight School in New Jersey. The FBI interviewed him about his activities and at Khaled Mohammed el-Jessem¶s trial FBI Agent Finnegan, who was in charge of his case, was asked: Q. Could you tell us what the circumstances of the FBI¶s interview with Mr. Al-Jawari were in 1973? AUSA Rose: Objection, irrelevance, before the crime was committed. THE COURT: I'll permit it. Mr. Rose: I would ask that Agent Finnegan be permitted to summarize the details without revealing any of the sources as to why any of the persons in addition to Mr. Al-Jawari were interviewed. Q. I'm asking what contact did the FBI have with Al-Jawari in 1973. Again I understand this is prior to the alleged bombing. A. An agent interviewed him in the course of another investigation and it was a negative interview, no crime committed. He was interviewed in the course of business. No official report was made of the interview, I don't believe. There is notice of the interview. Q. There is some indication in FBI files the FBI in fact interviewed AlJawari in 1973? A. Yes, there are. There's also an interview about Al-Jawari. I would say the purpose of the interview is classified.
Q. I'm not asking you for the purpose of the interview but could you tell us -- I'll ask the question, if it's objectionable I'll hear an objection. With regard to information about Al-Jawari obtained by the FBI in 1973 regarding where he was from, family members, contacts, any information regarding where he came from in that interview by the FBI in 1973? A. At the time he advised the interviewing agent he was here to study to become a pilot. He had, if I recall correctly, had gone to school in Egypt and received an engineering degree, here to study to be a pilot and he was in the preliminary stages of studying to be a pilot. He was deciding and he was basically here on a travel visa, permit to visit briefly, shortly, exploring the possibilities of attending pilot school. Q. More specifically regarding, say, addresses or family members in whatever country the FBI was told, if they were told where he was from at that time? A. I believe he said he was from an Iraqi family.16 As a result of this interview Khaled Mohammed el-Jessem was forced to withdraw from flight school and his tuition was refunded. It was decided Khaled Mohammed el-Jessem would instead attack two Israeli banks in Manhattan17, one of them located in the Jewish-controlled diamond district, by parking a car bomb in front of them. The El-Al Airlines terminal warehouse at Kennedy Airport was targeted in the same fashion. El-Jassem rented several cars from Hertz and other rental agencies so that he would be an established customer when he rented the cars to be used in the attack. The bombs were set to detonate upon the arrival of Israeli Premier Golda Meir on Sunday March 4, 1973 and consisted of the plastic explosive Semtex, believed to have been imported from Iraq, three five-gallon containers of gasoline, and several propane cylinders. Two of the bombs had an electrolytic timer that utilized the discharge of a capacitor into a printed circuit to trip a relay, while the other employed the metal hands of a Donald Duck wind-up clock to close the circuit. All three failed to explode because of faulty wiring. When one of the devices was set off by the bomb squad it produced a ball of fire five twenty-five feet in diameter. Anyone with a hundred yards of the blast would have been killed. America would have been awakened from its complacent slumber. On Monday March 5, 1973 the police towed away one of the vehicles for a parking violation and an agent from the Olin rent-a-car agency was called in to inspect it on Tuesday. When the agent opened the trunk he found the explosive device and timer. The FBI began to canvas all Israeli installations in the city looking for cars with rental plates parked in front of them. This was how the FBI discovered the bomb, in a car rented by Avis, at the El Al Airlines terminal warehouse. On Wednesday, the third car bomb, rented from Hertz, was discovered in the impound lot at Pier 56 on the Hudson

River. The FBI found literature printed by Black September in one of the automobiles, wrapped in a Hebrew language newspaper so that if would not draw attention to the vehicle. The FBI claimed it had an informant who was in touch with members of the Black September cell. The informant reported that five or six such car bombs had been planted throughout the city. In reality the Bureau was convinced that Khaled Mohammed el-Jessem had worked alone and no one else except for him was ever charged. The PLO Security Office agreed with the FBI and reported that the Brother had no connection to Black September: ³Mr. Khaled el-Jessem has been appointed as a representative of the Arab Public Relation Department in charge of the political relationships of the PLO with other Arab countries. During that period, he used to be in direct contact and working side to side with its chairman Mr. Yassir Arafat, and had no relationship whatsoever with any, split party of the PLO.´18 Brother el-Jessem left the United States but before he did he hid his false passport behind an air conditioner at the Skyway Motel near Kennedy Airport. Others carried on his mission: On July 1, 1973 Israeli Air Attaché Yosef Alon was shot. The same Brothers from Black September who aided el-Jessem in the New York City car bomb operation carried out this act. Almost 30 years have passed since his assassination and no one has ever been charged. Allu Akbar! Brother Khaled Mohammed el-Jessem remained active in the movement. On April 26, 1979, two men identifying themselves as ³Yousif Salim Sejaan´ and ³George Mechail´ attempted to cross into the Federal Republic of Germany from Austria at the Passau-Achleiten border crossing. ³Sejaan´ carried a French passport indicating his place of birth as Dbaye, Lebanon. ³Mechail´ carried a Cypriot passport indicating his place of birth as Nicosia, Cyprus. Both carried international driver's licenses. The border police determined that ³Mechail¶s´ passport had been tampered with, and conducted a search of the vehicle they were driving. They found approximately 88 pounds of high explosives, eight electronic timing-delay devices and eight detonators in the suitcases in the trunk. ³Mechail´ then revealed that his true identity was Mohammed Hamade, that he was born in Beirut, Lebanon, and that he was an officer in the Palestine Liberation Organization. ³Sejaan´ maintained his identity. After the two men were arrested, a portable radio belonging to ³Sejaan´ was taken apart. Taped to the inside of the radio were four electronic timing devices, nine passports and two International Driver's Licenses. Located in ³Sejaan¶s´ briefcase was a roll of tape identical to the tape used to affix the detonators and the documents to the inside of the radio. The radio itself could be used to monitor transmissions from ships, aircraft or police, and located in ³Sejaan's´ briefcase was a ³Minispion,´ a device that could be used to transmit to the radio. ³Sejaan´ also had a substantial amount of money, including $12,500 in United States currency. Finally, three of ³Sejaan's´ fingerprints were found on the inside of the paper wrapped around one of the blocks of
. Carl Pelleck ³How FBI Broke Arab Bomb Plot´ New York Post circa March 8, 1973 (article in authors possession).
explosive material, and one fingerprint was found on one of the passports that was inside the radio. As a result of the arrests of Hamade and ³Sejaan´ the German Police placed an alert for other Palestinian's crossing into the Federal Republic of Germany. That same day, two other men, Mohammed-Zahedi and Rida Rachim Musawi, were stopped as they attempted to cross the Dutch border at Elten, North Rhine, Westphalia, both using Iranian passports and international driver's licenses. The photos on the two passports were identical to the photos on two of the passports found inside ³Sejaan¶s´ radio. Moreover, documents recovered from both automobiles, an analysis of telephone calls made from the hotels where the men stayed before entering Germany and statements made by the four concerning their European travels confirmed that they were acting in concert. Of the four men arrested, only Hamade implicated himself in a so-called terrorist mission. In substance, he stated that he was ordered to travel from Hamburg to Israel where his group was going to take hostages to be exchanged for imprisoned Palestinians. ³Sejaan´ claimed that he met Hamade for the first time on April 25, 1979, at the Linz, Austria, railway station, that he had offered Hamade a ride to Passau, and that the luggage containing the explosives belonged to Hamade. When confronted with the fact that the passports, driver's licenses and electronic timing devices were found in his radio, ³Sejaan´ declined to make any further statements. Moreover, between March 24, 1979 and March 26, 1979, seven more Palestinians were arrested in Berlin in possession of approximately 40 pounds of high explosives and 12 detonators. Two of those arrested confessed that they were going to use the explosives for bombings in the Federal Republic of Germany. The wrapping of the explosives seized in Berlin was the same as that used to wrap the explosives seized from ³Sejaan´ and Hamade, that is, they both bore the label of a pastry shop in Beirut, Lebanon, which was used as a front for al-Fatah. In addition, the photograph on one of the Mauritania passports found in ³Sejaan¶s´ radio was of one of the persons arrested in Berlin. On July 24, 1987 a Lebanese Brother, Ali Mohamad Hariri, hijacked an Air Africa plane in Geneva and demanded the release of the Hamade brothers held captive in the German Federal Republic. The operation ended with the arrest of the Brother, killing one person and injuring 31. In October 1990, Agent Finnegan received information from the intelligence community that ³Al-Jawari´ might be el-Jessem, a Palestine Liberation Organization official living in Nicosia, Cyprus. The FBI requested that el-Jessem¶s fingerprints be discreetly obtained and compared with the latent fingerprints of ³Al-Jawari.´ Shortly after that request was made Agent Finnegan was notified that el-Jassem had fled Cyprus before his fingerprints could be obtained. Subsequent investigation revealed that elJessem had moved to Baghdad Iraq, after leaving Cyprus.
On January 17, 1991, Agent Finnegan learned that el-Jessem had landed on January 16, 1991, in Rome, Italy, en route to Tunis, where he had been detained. He would be released on January 18, 1991 at 11:00 A.M. unless proof was presented that el-Jessem was ³Al-Jawari.´ On January 18, 1991, ³Al-Jawari's´ fingerprints and a photograph that had been retouched to account for the years that had passed since it was first taken arrived in Rome at 8:30 A.M. A positive match between el-Jessem's fingerprints and the latent prints of "Al-Jawari´ was made, and el-Jessem was held pending extradition to the United States. Khaled Mohammed EI-Jassem: ³Twenty four hours earlier before I was arrested in Rome my friend was assassinated in Tunisia. I was enroute to attend his funeral.´ EIJassem was referring to the January 14, 1991 murder of Salah Khalaf, aka Abu Iyad, the co-founder of al-Fatah, and the founder of Black September. Abu Iyad was the organizer of the 1972 Olympic Event in Munich. Members of the Abu Nidal Group and Iraqi intelligence agents killed him after he opposed Arafat¶s support of Saddam at the start of the Gulf War. Khaled Mohammed El-Jessem explained why he was arrested on the same day America invaded Iraq: ³There came August 1990, where Iraq took back its southern government Norat, which is known as Kuwait, and the Arabs were divided by those who supported and those who did not support. And the position that the PLO took was neutral, but leaning towards Iraq, with the hope that Iraq will withdraw from Kuwait peacefully. When I was working in the Department, I was the responsible of the department of Arab relations at the PLO. Definitely I had to go and visit Baghdad during that time, and as a result, I became a target for the American secret agencies, which at that time became -- whereas at that time, it concentrated its efforts on the Iraqi situation, particularly after August 1990. He contested extradition, but was ultimately ordered extradited. He arrived in the United States on April 12, 1992. William Kunstler, a classmate of the presiding Judge Jack Weinstein, represented Khaled Mohammed El-Jessem. Kunstler introduced himself to EI-Jassem during the first meeting as ³Mohammed Mosa Kunstler´ and added that he was an Orthodox Muslim! Indeed, this surprise made el-Jessem closer to and trust him despite some signals he received from Agent Finnegan during meetings with him that Kunstler was Jewish. (EI-Jassem said that Agent Finnegan advised him not to tell his lawyer, Mr. Kunstler, or the judge about meetings he was having with the Government). El-Jassem said that Agent Finnegan told him: Kunstler and your Judge Weinstein are Jewish and Kunstler does not want to close this case, but we want to close it. Agent Finnegan also told me that he is Irish, Catholic, and that Mr. Rose too, µWe are not Jewish¶
Finnegan said! The prosecutor, Mr. Rose and Agent Finnegan advised me not to go to trial particularly that the judge is Jewish, a strong supporter of Israel, a member of several Zionist organizations, and possibly bias against me for the fact that I am Arabic, Palestinian, and Muslim. Mr. Rose and Agent Finnegan told me that this judge hates Palestinians, and in 1991 he ordered the extradition of a Palestinian named µAtta¶ to Israel (this fact was in total contradiction to what Mr. Kunstler told me while I was in small cage waiting for my first hearing, in presence of interpreter Mr. Khair that this judge (Hon. Weinstein) refused to extradite the Palestinian µAtta¶ to Israel). I asserted and advised Mr. Kunstler, repeatedly by letters that I am not AlJawari, and the Rule of 5-year statute of limitation should be applied to dismiss the indictments. Kunstler asked for one hundred thousand dollars plus ten for an interpreter and expert, he sent a Fax-letters to my wife and to the PLO¶s representative in N.Y., for payment. After a few days Mr. Yassir Arafat, Chairman of the PLO sent ten thousand dollars to Mr. Kunstler, through the Arab Bank in Cyprus. But, Mr. Arafat could not send another money despite his promise to do so, because the PLO being in difficulties financially situation. Therefore, Mr. Kunstler refused to attend three court hearings, one was for bail motion in June 1992. After the PLO failed to pay additional money to Mr. Kunstler, el-Jessem noticed that Mr. Kunstler began to refuse to accept his collect calls, and avoided talking to his wife despite the fact she was calling from overseas, and she was paying for the call. The excuses used were that Mr. Kunstler was in Cuba, or out of New York etc., but the New York Times paper indicated that Kunstler had hearings in New York during the same day! El-Jassem felt that he must pay or Mr. Kunstler will not move the case oneinch forward. El-Jassem protested: My lawyer Kunstler, since November 16 he didn¶t visit me (as you know they don¶t let me call him here). I sent him more than ten letters but he didn¶t answer!! My wife called him from Cyprus, Nicosia (she paid for call) but he refused to talk, he let his secretary talk!!! As you know I asked the court to reappoint him. I don¶t want to have negative relation with him. I respect him. I trust him. I don¶t want to lose him. He is good and great man. I am good man too. Indeed, I don¶t know how I can convince him to visit me, I need to discuss everything with him. Is this how lawyers in the U.S. works? Or he don¶t like to defense me? I am not insect. The result of this was that Kunstler suggested el-Jessem be examined by a psychiatrist. During this psychiatric evaluation el-Jessem admitted he was in contact with Hamas. Later he would deny this:
This is totally untrue. The interview with Dr. Tish was recorded on videotape. Therefore, I strongly challenge this and request to review the tape because I did not say that at all. There is no relation between me and Hamas at all. And in 1973, there was no Hamas. It was established only in the beginning of the nineties. Therefore, I do not find any connection or even a reason to mention this in relation to this case which is 20 years old. Hamas is only 4 years old. Hamas surfaced strongly as a reaction to certain developments in 1991 - 1992. I have been in prison since January 16, 1991. At any rate, Hamas has good relations with Washington. It was established by support from Saudi Arabia - America's ally, and Kuwait also America's ally and one of its unannounced states. It (Hamas) was established to influence and challenge the Palestine Liberation Organization. It was basically to weaken and undermine the PLO, especially, after August 1991. As Hamas reached a limit of causing disturbances on the street in Israel, and not the Israeli Government, all the allies began to withdraw their support and turned away. Hamas was then ascribed to Iran. But this is untrue because Iran is a fanatic Shi¶ite sect of Islam. But Hamas is 100% Sunni Muslim. However, due to ignorance and avoidance of media to relate good or bad wills caused people to confuse the matters. On March 10, 1993 the fingerprints of ³Sejaan´ were finally transmitted from the Federal Republic of Germany to Special Agent Clarence Phillips of the FBI Laboratory, Latent Fingerprint Section. On March 12, 1993, Agent Phillips confirmed that ³Sejaan´ and Khaled Mohammed el-Jessem were the same person.19 YASSIR ARAFAT WAS EL-JASSEM¶S CO-CONSPIRATOR El-Jassem told Kunstler: The United States knows that the PLO and al-Fatah and Black September Organization are one, and acted under Arafat¶s leadership since 19711972«The United States knew that the defendant was an official diplomatic enjoyed immunity of the PLO in Cyprus, holding diplomatic passport, before his arrest in 1991«The United States prosecuted defendant as personal action not as organization, PLO action, or any others, since PLO, al-Fatah and Black September are one, and since no protest against PLO by U.S«There is a reasonable possibility that Arafat¶s role in this attempt case was a principal (if agent Finnegan¶s testimony of January 3, 1994 was correct; and Government¶s statement of March 17, 1993 was correct)«There is a reasonable possibility that the United States accepted this attempt case, since it allowed Yassir Arafat to visit New York on April 1974, where the FBI documents were completed before April 1974, and showed that the PLO was responsible, and the statute of limitations was not run yet.
. USDC EDNY 73CR500 Letter to Judge Weinstein March 17, 1993 from Mary Joe White
In 1992, the court appointed lawyer representing me before you took over the case, Mr. Paul Davison (of The N.Y. Legal Aid Society), was told by the prosecutor AUSA/Rose that Mr. Yassir Arafat, Chairman of the PLO, personally ordered and financed the actions in the present case. No soldier will go to a battle or to take care of a duty unless he receives instructions from his own chief or his commander, and in this particular case, let's continue to assume, then we can say to execute this kind of operation must have been taken at a very high level. And the sum of money, that is needed as to what we mentioned, it is a big sum, and a soldier cannot possess it. And came the year 1973, and the decisions of the political and financial decisions were in the hand of Arafat directly. Nobody could at that time spend $50 without his direct approval or his signature, and this is the case up till now. The PLO corroborated el-Jessem¶s contention: Based on our investigation conducted in the present case and reviewing some Top-Secret PLO documents from 1973, along with statements made, to us by several PLO officials, it is proven to us that Mr. Yassir Arafat, who in 1973 was (and still is) the Chairman of the PLO Military Department, did order/approve the plan, in the present case, and signed the money order to cover the expenses of the actions, in the present case, and he did so in his official capacity. Additionally, after September 1993 PLO officials told U.S. officials through the diplomatic and intelligence channels that the facts in the present case are as told to Mr. Davison, and that Ambassador el-Jessem was not involved in (and had no knowledge about) these actions at all. They also urged the immediate release of this innocent man.´ El-Jassem was found guilty and sentenced to three consecutive ten-year terms. He commented: The Court and Prosecutor, in Sentencing Order, have both declared the PLO is a µcriminal organization¶ and since µArafat¶ the boss he should not be treated different than µJohn Gotti,¶ (boss of criminal organization). It is much better, if the Court were correct, to bring the µboss¶ who ordered the action of the crime in the present case, who is Arafat and other leaders of the PLO. The PLO legal department filed this brief on el-Jessem¶s behalf: The members of this society were the first supporters of the 1993 peace agreement, because of their hope that the peace will stop their ongoing ordeals. They understand, as do I, that the signing of the peace agreement must be followed by the release of all prisoners, when their
imprisonment was related to that conflict, worldwide. When the PLO leaders signed that agreement, they explicitly accepted full responsibility for all acts done by their men and women in that conflict worldwide prior to September 15, 1993. And so did the other signatories. There is precedent for American atrocities against civilians on foreign soil in Vietnam by Calley. The U.S. government was in fact accountable for Calley's actions, and the PLO is in fact accountable for any action done by its men and women worldwide. In the United States prison at Lompoc California, the PLO has the man most needed in its efforts at this period of time, Ambassador Khaled elJessem. He is an official and a diplomat who enjoys the ambassadorial level of diplomatic immunity with the PLO Diplomatic Corps. On April 16, 1993, five months before signing the peace agreement in Washington, the U.S. District Court, Eastern District New York, sentenced him to 360 months imprisonment despite the 52 months recommended. That court enhanced his sentence only because of his membership with the PLO. The Palestinian Police and Bureau of Investigation Department, and the Intelligence authority, have conducted a wide and intensive investigation concerning the case and whether, or not, he was involved in that case. They have assured me that there was no intent to blow up anything, but to gain attention of the American media through hoax devices. Thus, the element of attempt, intent, is lacking in that case. Also, they have assured me that he was not involved in that case, and he is not the right perpetrator. The fact that Ambassador el-Jessem, from day one (of his arrest on January 16, 1991, at Rome-Italy airport at the behest of FBI agent Finnegan) has adamantly denied any involvement in that case is significant. It is commonly held opinion here that the Mossad was using the FBI to eliminate Palestinian diplomats through a policy of disinformation prior to September 1993. This was one of the dirty tricks during the war against the PLO. PLO leadership, in writing, accepted responsibility for the acts for which Ambassador el-Jessem was convicted and sentenced. Thus, the PLO is in fact accountable for the actions in that case. Under Calley, supra, he must not be punished even if he was convicted because the PLO is in fact accountable for that case. The most significant difference lies in the fact that in Calley, many lives were taken, whereas in the PLO case, it was at most, an ill-considered publicity stunt. First, although he was never a member of PLO Military Department, his family and friends view him as a war hero, (everybody here does) so his imprisonment has the effect of making him a martyr because it's common knowledge here that the U.S.- FBI arrested him, and the District judge
sentenced him to 360 months to die in U.S. prison, to convenience the Mossad. All officials here, including the Minister of Justice, have stated to us (our Court) that the perpetrator(s) who committed the acts in the present case did not include Ambassador el-Jessem who was neither a member of the PLO Military Department nor had any knowledge about the actions (for which he was convicted and sentenced). Simply, Ambassador el-Jessem was (and still is) a member of the PLO Political Department. It is our view that our esteemed member of the PLO Political Branch should not be punished for the actions of any member(s) of the Military Department, especially since he was in no way involved in or had knowledge of them. As a matter of justice, he should not be punished for acts committed by someone else. In United States v. Brannon, 447 U.S. 908 (1980) a defendant is entitled to prove his innocence by showing that someone else committed the crime. Under this amnesty, the U.S. Justice Department did not request extradition from our Justice Ministry (or our Court) for Mr. Abbas, who is (extremely) wanted to the U.S. government, despite Senator D'Amato's request to do so. Mr. Abbas accepted responsibility and the guilt, and offered his apology through the US-TV Network from Gaza. The U.S. government turned a deaf ear to Senator D'Amato and a blind eye to Mr. Abbas. The U.S. government's behavior is an expression of its current policy of amnesty since September 1993, even though Mr. Abbas and Mr. Arafat were both charged with capital crimes.´20 On October 18, 1993 and October 29, 1993 Khaled Mohammed el-Jessem wrote this to Judge Weinstein: Yesterday, the Israelian Prime Minster, Mr. Rabin, stated that his government began release thousands of the PLO¶s prisoners. The U.S. Congress, last week, decided to recognize the PLO and removed its name from the µTerrorist¶s List.¶ This means one thing, that the war is µover¶ and the peace time µcome true.¶ There are more than fifteen thousands PLO prisoners in Israel and other countries. All have been arrested as a result of the µPalestinian Refugees Problem.¶ The Israelian did began release all the PLO's prisoners including a Palestinian Atta who was extradited to Israel by Order of this court. I am sure that this court, feel with a happy mood in regard to Atta's release, since, in all consciences, the court knew that all these cases were a result of the Palestinian Refugees Problem« This was the extraordinary circumstances that may give this court the jurisdiction to proceed, even if my appeal is still pending in the Second

Circuit, because this court made upward departure in its sentencing, from 52-months to 360-months, on ground, that, the PLO is and was a ³criminal organization.´ But, the new extraordinary circumstances proved that the PLO is not and was not a µcriminal organization¶, because the U.S. President, Congress, Department of State would not have made that extraordinary Ceremony for Mr. Arafat. Judge Weinstein refused to release Khaled Mohammed el-Jessem and a few years later he appealed this conviction on the basis of newly discovered evidence: briefs that were attempted to be filed on his behalf during post-trial proceedings by the Palestinian General Directorate of Public Security and Police, the General Directorate of Palestinian Intelligence, and the Palestinian Supreme Court; and a letter sent by a judge of the Palestinian Supreme Court to the former Chief Judge of the Appellate Court. Each of these documents purported to show that el-Jessem had not been responsible for the bombs, and that others within the Palestinian Liberation organization had placed them. One of them read: ³Explicitly, the man who was in charge mentioned Shahine¶s name as the man who carried out these act in the present case in 1973. Both Shahine and his superior are no longer alive today, but the witnesses testimony is available.´ In 1998 the appellate court ruled that the briefs and the letter could not be deemed newly discovered evidence: To be sure, these written materials were new in that they did not exist until after he was convicted. Indeed, they were prepared in connection with his post-conviction litigation. Each of the documents, however, purported to reveal information about events from 20 years before. That is information that el-Jessem - a PLO official - could have discovered with µdue diligence.¶ Moreover, the documents themselves are hearsay and would have been inadmissible« The requirement that newly discovered evidence would µprobably lead to an acquittal«presupposes«that the proffered new evidence, would be admissible at the new trial. Again, elJessem fails to show how this information, even if he had devised a way to introduce it at trial, would have counteracted the devastating effect of the considerable and uncontroverted fingerprint evidence connecting him to the crime. Judge Weinstein did not abuse his discretion in denying elJessem¶s motion for a new trial. For these reasons, the judgment is affirmed.21 Here was a startling admission that the PLO had carried out so-called terrorist acts within the United States. The Americans have repeatedly stated that they will not negotiate with ³terrorists´ yet the United States has always been willing to negotiate with the PLO. Although many Americans are afraid to say it out loud, due to the power of the Zionist lobby to destroy them, they know in their hearts that our cause is just. YASSIR THE ELDER¶S DEVIOUS STRATEGY
. USDC EDNY 93 CIV 4392 Appellate Division
When Arafat was asked about having agreed to Oslo he replied: ³Allah¶s messenger Mohammad accepted the al-Khudaibiya peace treaty.´22 He, of course, was referring to the Khudaibiya agreement made by Muhammad with the Arabian tribe of Koreish. The pact, slated to last for ten years, was broken within two years, when the Islamic forces - having used the peace pact to become stronger - conquered the Koreish tribe. The Arabic word Huda derives from this agreement. Another historic reference Arafat made during that same speech was to ³Caliph Omar and Patriarch Sofornas.´ This referred to the Christian bishop Sofornas of Jerusalem who, in the year 638, surrendered Jerusalem to Omar, the second successor to Mohammed. Omar made it a condition in that treaty that no Jews would be allowed to live in Jerusalem! As far as martyrdom bombing, Arafat said: ³I renew the call to completely halt any activities, especially suicide attacks, which we have condemned and always condemned.´ Two days later Chairman Arafat stated: ³With God¶s help, next time we will meet in Jerusalem, because we are fighting to bring victory to our prophets, every baby, every kid, every man, every woman and every old person and all the young people, we will all sacrifice ourselves for our holy places and we will strengthen our hold of them and we are willing to give 70 of our martyrs for every one of theirs in this campaign, because this is our holy land.´23 ARAFAT AND HIS STOOGE YITZHAK RABIN The political has nothing in common with the moral. The ruler who is governed by the moral is not a skilled politician, and is therefore unstable on his throne. He who wishes to rule must have recourse both to cunning and to make-believe. The leader of the Palestinian people, Yassir Arafat, exhibited these qualities in his dealing with the Zionist entity and most especially, with Yitzhak Rabin, his partner in ³peace.´ Yitzhak Rabin24 once the Peace Now Prime Minister of the Zionist entity, believed Arafat¶s fabrication that peace was possible in exchange for land. His constituency, weary from half a century of war failed to appreciate that Oslo was nothing more than a stalling tactic, to use an invidious comparison, just as the Soviet Union was able to forestall war and re-arm during the Hitler-Stalin pact. Had the Soviets not done this, they would have been defeated by Germany. The Oslo accords played on the weakness of the Jews, and ultimately would have brought them peace, the peace of the grave for in the Zionist State amid the demand for ³a Palestinian State´ ever multiplying out of defeatism, we find a new right -- to attack by the right of the strong, and to scatter to the winds all existing forces of order and regulation, to reconstruct all institutions and to become the

LaRouche stated: ³The dangerous policies of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and the Israeli Defense Forces leadership, which have devolved into a scorched-earth policy against Yasser Arafat and the Palestinian Authority, should be contrasted against the effective approach taken by Yitzhak Rabin. Rabin, during his second stint as Prime Minister of Israel (from July 1992, until his assassination on November 4, 1995) was relentless in his efforts to achieve a just, lasting peace with the Palestinian leader. He knew, as LaRouche has recently insisted, that Israel would be destroyed, eventually, by the policy that Sharon represents.

executioners of those who have left to us the rights of their power by laying them down voluntarily in their defeatism. May Allah bestow his blessings upon the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, for it is written in the Qur`an: ³And when we made a covenant with the children of Israel: You shall not serve any but Allah«´25 which was what Rabin did. Great national qualities, like frankness and honesty, are vices in politics, for they bring down rulers from their thrones more effectively and more certainly than the most powerful enemy. Such qualities must be the attributes of the kingdoms of the kuffar, but they must in no wise guide us. Rabin did not come to his senses even after almost all Israeli Arabs supported the actions and threats of Saddam Hussein, and openly expressed the hope that Iraq would fulfill its threat to bombard Israel with missiles tipped with chemical warheads. These were the Arabs he considered loyal to the illegitimate State of Israel. YIGAL AMIR Yigal Amir, temporarily set back our plans to destroy the Zionist entity using the Arafat methodology by assassinating Rabin. Amir, who had attended a paramilitary Talmudical school, was born in Herzliya in the heartland of the Zionist entity and was a law student at Bar Ilan University in Tel Aviv - a center for religious fundamentalists when he murdered Rabin. Israel Hess was the campus rabbi of Bar Ilan University. In the early 1980¶s Hess had published a tractate entitled ³The Commandment to Commit Genocide in the Torah.´ According to Hess, all those who declared war on µGod¶s people¶ are µAmalecites¶ (it is said that many of the Learned Elders of Islam descended from this tribe), and God declared the counter-Jihad in which the µAmalecites¶, right down to the last woman and child, must be exterminated. Three days before Amir eliminated Rabin, a group of rabbis organized a ceremony in front of Rabin¶s apartment, a ceremony that is considered one of the worst possible forms of stigmatization. They exorcised avenging angels, which were to kill Rabin by ³whipping fire lashes against him.´ They chanted ³Yitzhak, son of Rosa, who is known as Rabin, we are permitted to ask the Angel of Destruction to raise the sword and kill this bad human being; for he hands the Land of Israel to our enemies, to the sons of Ismail.´26 During his interrogation the police officials tried in vain to elicit information from Amir concerning the rabbis who had issued the (seal of approval, religious edict, fatwa) for the Rabin assassination, without which, he admitted, he would not have been ³kosher.´ The Judaist Amir was motivated by a belief in the Jewish equivalent of Shari'ah, Halacha, religious law. Before the Zionist secular court, Amir explained that in accordance with the Halacha any Jew who ³leaves his people and his
25. Qur`an - 2.83 26 . Passia Publications ³Peace Enemies Chapter 5 - Israel Between Western Democracy and Religious Fundamentalism.´ http://www.passia.org/publications/research_studies/peace/chapter5.html
land to the enemy, as Rabin did, must be killed«I did it for the Torah of Israel.´ During the questioning Amir said that two unnamed rabbis had called Rabin a rodef and a mosser. A rodef is a persecutor who puts Jews in moral danger. If there is no other possibility such a persecutor must be killed in order to save other human lives; this is not seen as a punishment but as redemption. A mosser, meanwhile, is a spy or an informer. Like a rodef, a mosser can be killed without a religious court ruling. Thus, the assassination was like following an order taken from the laws of God, which no one could have prevented, as Yigal Amir¶s brother Haggai explained. According to Halacha, Amir¶s act was not a murder but rather an urgent necessity, something that needed to be done in order to divert danger from the Jewish people. AVISHAI RAVIV SHIN BET AGENT The Shin Bet27 employed a Jew so sick that he did not know which side he was on, the government¶s or the Judaists? This agent provocateur was Avishai Raviv and he was asked by his handlers to actively protest the peace process, in order to discredit right-wing political groups who opposed the Oslo Accords. Raviv had worked for Shin Bet since 1987. He was a deep cover agent who was allowed to commit numerous crimes not only against our people, but also against other Jews, in order to bolster his credibility. In doing so he violated the laws of the Zionist entity numerous times yet he went unpunished. Avishai Raviv was born in 1967 in Holon, just south of Tel Aviv. He made up for his stuttering, a nervous disorder, by playing practical jokes on his classmates, just as he played a practical joke on the Shin Bet. Raviv¶s family was not religious and voted for the secular Labor Party. At the age of 16, he attended a lecture by the Rabbi Meir Kahane, became active in the Kahanist movement and embraced fundamentalist Judaism. While on leave from service in the Israeli Defense Force¶s murderous Givati Brigade, Avishai Raviv began attending demonstrations and other Judaist activities. It was then Raviv was recruited as an informer for the Shin Bet. Avishai Raviv, however, was no ordinary snitch. He was an agent provocateur. For five years he initiated, organized, and led dozens of extremist Judaist activities under the aegis of a government led group called Eyal (the Jewish Fighting Organization). Eyal was Kahanist in its philosophy: It ran training camps that encouraged children to throw stones at Palestinians and it launched a well-publicized leafleting campaign against mixed Jewish-Arab classes in public schools. Leaflets of this sort are illegal in the Zionist entity because they¶re too outwardly racist, and those who are responsible for creating them are often prosecuted. He and several Eyal teenagers were brought in for police questioning. No charges were pressed. Avishai Raviv beat up and mishandled Palestinians in a Nazi-like manner, particularly children and elderly people. He also destroyed their possessions, for which he was arrested but immediately released

Created shortly after Israel¶s birth, the Shin Bet is, in effect, the Israeli FBI and Secret Service combined; it is charged with the tasks of gathering domestic intelligence, counterespionage, and protecting diplomats and VIPs.

following the intervention of the Shin Bet. Avishai Raviv even traveled to Gaza and met there with Hamas leaders to arrange for joint terror attacks. The Voice of Palestine blamed attacks carried out by Hamas on Eyal.28 Soon Avishai Raviv built a small but loyal following, made up primarily of religious teenagers. Most of Raviv¶s handlers were not religious. The first thing Raviv¶s Case Officers in the Shin Bet demanded was that he marry a Judaist settler from the Hebron area in order to enhance his bona fides. This marriage did not last long, and the couple soon divorced. The Shin Bet caused this female settlers life to be destroyed, something Islamists would never do to their own! Many other Jews suffered at the hands of Avishai Raviv: In August 1991 during a protest outside the Tel Aviv office of the Communist party, when Tamar Gozansky, a Communist member of the Knesset left the building, Raviv charged at her with a large metal flagpole. Gozansky¶s aide blocked the assault, and a brawl ensued. Photos of a bloodied Raviv limping away from the rally enhanced his stature among the Kahane thugs. Avishai Raviv was arrested, but it took nearly four years for the case to go to court. He was let off with a mere nine months¶ probation and a small fine. The Shin Bet orchestrated the decision by Israeli prosecutors to request probation. A few days after the machine-gunning of 29 Palestinians by Baruch Goldstein in March 1994 at Hebron¶s Cave of the Patriarchs, Avishai Raviv rented an apartment directly above the one where Goldstein had lived in Kiryat Arba. While Kiryat Arba¶s leaders were denouncing Goldstein, Raviv was boasting about his admiration for him. The mayor of Kiryat Arba, Zvi Katzover, had his life threatened. Then one of Raviv¶s splinter groups, DOV [Suppression of Traitors], vandalized a car belonging to him and the next day, Eyal took credit for assaulting Katzover¶s son so seriously that the boy had to be hospitalized. Raviv was not prosecuted. Avishai Raviv started to openly discuss assassinating prominent Israelis. The Jews are their own worst enemy. Ultimately they will destroy themselves. The Learned Elders of Islam merely hasten this self-destructive wish. Yitzhak Rabin was so foolish he allowed his own General Security Service (Shin Bet) to create and sponsor Eyal and as a result Avishai Raviv met Yigal Amir at the Institute for Advanced Torah Studies of Bar-Ilan University. It was there, in the spring of 1994, that Yigal Amir was drawn into Avishai Raviv¶s netherworld. Raviv was blanketing the campus with extremist posters. He clashed with campus security when guards took some of the more militant notices down. This resulted in his expulsion and his becoming a Judaist hero. Prior to the Rabin assassination Yigal openly expressed his desire to kill this ³traitor´ but Avishai Raviv failed to even hint at Yigal Amir¶s declared intention to harm Rabin when he reported to his handlers. Not only did he not say a word about Yigal Amir but he encouraged him to kill the Jewish leader: Shortly after the Rabin assassination several young women at a religious seminary said that they had recognized Yigal Amir and Raviv from a Sabbath retreat the previous summer. The girls said that Raviv had denounced several Rabin government officials as ³traitors´ and Raviv had attempted to goad Yigal into killing Rabin, ridiculing his ³cowardice´ for not being willing to
. Michael Widlanski ³Don¶t Fight People who are Fighting Terror´ Jerusalem Post March 15, 1966 page 10
assassinate a ³traitor.´ The girls testified: ³Raviv was real macho. He kept saying to Yigal Amir, µYou keep talking about killing Rabin. Why don¶t you do it? Are you frightened? You say you want to do it. Show us that you¶re a man! Show us what you are made of.¶´ Yigal Amir¶s convicted accomplices, his brother Haggai Amir and Dror Adani, claimed Avishai Raviv knew of the plot and Avishai Raviv¶s girlfriend, Margalit Har-Shefi was convicted for failing to report it. After the Rabin killing the Shin Bet denied having granted Avishai Raviv immunity from prosecution: ³We established new rules of operation...that he would undergo psychological examinations. It was made quite clear to him that we wouldn¶t continue along the same path, and that he would not receive immunity for crimes he committed.´ Avishai Raviv was charged with ³failing to prevent a felony´ for the Rabin killing and with ³support for a terror organization´ based on the swearing-in ceremony for his right-wing Eyal organization. In October 2002 the Court ruled that Raviv¶s confession made to his Shin Bet interrogators immediately after the assassination that he had heard Yigal Amir voice his intention to kill Rabin was admissible. Two police witnesses for the prosecution testified that Haggai Amir had confessed during his interrogation seven years ago that Avishai Raviv knew of his brother¶s plot to assassinate the late prime minister. Police officer Efraim Bracha, who was the head of the Tel Aviv police team that interrogated Haggai Amir immediately after the assassination, told the court that as early as three days after the assassination he knew that something was very wrong regarding Raviv. Police officer Efraim Bracha asked Haggai Amir if Avishai Raviv knew about their intentions [to kill Rabin], and he answered in the affirmative, and this contradicted the reports the police got from Shin Bet officials: ³I went to Avishai Raviv¶s handlers codenamed Eran and Yoni, and asked, µLook here: Haggai Amir is implicating Avishai Raviv. What is going on here?¶ It was then that they told me that Raviv was their intelligence man. They asked me not to continue [the interrogation] on this point, and that they would take care of it...They asked that no one be told.´ Court president Amnon Cohen asked Police officer Efraim Bracha why he went to the Shin Bet in the middle of his interrogation. A. Experience. To be honest, it stunk. It could not be that Haggai would talk to police about Avishai Raviv and not tell the Shin Bet about it earlier. Q. What did they [the Shin Bet] officials tell you?´ A. You want to know what they told me? µWelcome to the world of liars,¶ which meant this was intelligence, that Avishai Raviv was one of theirs, and not to elaborate. Q. So they both told you to leave it be, that he was one of theirs?
A. No, no they did not tell me to leave it because he was one of theirs, but that they would interrogate Haggai Amir and take care of the issue. I sit with them and let them know what is happening, and they tell me what to do. They instruct me on what to do. The person who runs the interrogation is them. Q. This is why I am asking you why you didn¶t make a record of this. A. This was an internal matter...which I did not see as µexplosive¶ material. A day after he was interrogated by Bracha, Avishai Raviv was remanded for seven days by Tel Aviv Magistrate¶s Court, on suspicion of conspiring to murder Rabin then released. The prosecution contended Avishai Raviv confessed to knowing of Yigdal Amir¶s plans during two interrogations shortly after the assassination, one with two Shin Bet interrogators. First Avishai Raviv claimed that he had told his interrogators the truth because he thought they were his friends and that he was not under investigation so his testimony could not be used against him. After the court rejected this and admitted the testimony, Avishai Raviv reversed himself and claimed he had lied during these same interrogations. In its summation the prosecution argued Avishai Raviv lied to the judges when he said he had lied to his interrogators when he told them he knew of Yigal Amir¶s intention to assassinate Rabin. Welcome to the world of liars! Yigal Amir had concluded that Avishai Raviv, even though he was an informant, was on his side and attempted to save him from the ordeal of prison so testified in defense of Avishai Raviv. Yigdal Amir said that Avishai Raviv did not know of his specific plans to murder Rabin. ³He only heard me talk of the general need for Rabin to be killed, but he knew nothing about my plans to do it,´ Amir said. Avishai Raviv¶s lawyers urged the court to consider Yigdal Amir¶s testimony that he had suspected Avishai Raviv of being a Shin Bet agent and had refrained from telling him of his plans. A three-judge panel acquitted Avishai Raviv on March 31, 2003. It ruled that: ³To convict Avishai Raviv of failing to prevent a crime in this case murder suspicions are not enough; rather, there is a need to prove real knowledge of an intention to commit a crime´ and that had Avishai Raviv known about the plot his ³weak and sycophantic personality´ would forced him to inform the Shin Bet since it was ³his whole world´ and would have made him a hero. The Court could not explain why Avishai Raviv failed to inform his handlers about the generalized threats the emanated from Amir. Right-wing Likudists instigated the prosecution of Avishai Raviv and the leftwing Labor Party judges ruled that Raviv should go free. The justice of men is subject to political considerations, wherein the justice of God is not. PROTOCOL 5. THE POWER OF OIL
In our day, the power, which will replace that of the rulers who are democratic, is the power of oil and the money generated from it. The despotism of oil, which is entirely in our hands, reaches out like a straw that the State, willy-nilly, must take hold of: If not - it sinks like a stone and goes to the bottom. Our triumph has been rendered easier by the fact that in our relations with the men, whom we wanted, we have always worked upon the most sensitive chords of the human mind, upon the cash account, upon the cupidity, upon the insatiability for material needs of man; and each one of these human weaknesses, taken alone, is sufficient to paralyze self preservation, for it hands over the will of men to the disposition of him who has bought their activities. The Bush Administration wants Arab money, votes and oil, so it must give something in return. Objectively, how does U.S. military, political and economic support of an otherwise unsustainable Jewish colony on the Mediterranean advance the economic, security and ethical interests of the U.S. people? As long as U.S. Middle East policy props up the Egyptian cleptocracy, the Gulf pimplets and other formations in the region we will have a political vendetta to settle, aside from our unrelenting religious one. Attacking this problem has next to nothing to do with the destiny of Jerusalem or West Bank squatters. Only to the extent that the cheerleaders for U.S. Middle East policy (AIPAC, ADL creeps, Likudists 5th columnists, etc.) seek to politically obstruct the self-defense of the U.S. people will the discussion turn much around Israel or the Palestinians. As the Americans run out of oil we shall exert more influence over them. The American environmentalists point to the 33% decline in domestic production of crude oil over the last 25 years as a sign of impending scarcity. At present, the United States imports about 10 million barrels of oil per day, representing 53% of its total consumption; by 2020, daily U.S. imports will total nearly 17 million barrels, or 65% of consumption. Shortly after each of the significant oil price spikes (1973-74, 1979-80 and 1990-91), the United States entered a recession. The effects of the 2006 gas price runup have yet to be seen. It is possible for any sound, logical mind to hope with any success to guide crowds by the aid of reasonable counsels and arguments, when the stomachs of the masses are empty, the economy having failed because of massive inflation instigated by rising oil prices? Men in masses, and the men of the masses, being guided solely by greed, paltry beliefs, traditions and sentimental theorems, fall prey to party dissension, and our natural allies, the Arabists, who have vocalized muted support for our activities against the Jews, will ascend to positions of political power. The Arabist organizations, underwritten by our immeasurable wealth generated from oil revenues are already in place and will produce ³respectable´ candidates, with long histories of service in the American government, to replace the Zionist Occupational Government. These ³nonprofit educational organization´ directors do not in any means support Jihad, for it is their institutions that will be struck, yet they represent the interests of the Saudis, who have always hated the Jews, reached arrangements with al-Qaeda and are the nation from which men such as Usama bin Laden have sprung, a man who despite their covert support has said, ³As for oil, it is a commodity that will be subject to the price of the
market according to supply and demand. We believe that the current prices are not realistic due to the Saudi regime playing the role of a U.S. agent and the pressures exercised by the U.S. on the Saudi regime to increase oil production and flooding the market that caused a sharp decrease in oil prices.´ Call them any name you want, American puppets, usurpers of the people¶s wealth, but they are still Sunni Wahabists. THE SAUDIS: MOHAMMED AL-KHILEWI On May 16, 1994 Mohammed al-Khilewi, the First Secretary at the Saudi Mission to the United Nations, defected and sought political asylum in the U.S. He brought with him 14,000 internal government documents depicting, among other things, the Saudi royal family's financial support for Hamas.29 Mohammed al-Khilewi met with two FBI agents and an Assistant US Attorney. Clinton granted the Saudi traitor asylum but FBI agents were ordered not to accept evidence of Saudi activity on our behalf, even on U.S. soil. Al-Khilewi's New York lawyer, Michael Wildes: ³We said [to the FBI], µHere, take the documents! Go get some bad guys with them! We'll even pay for the photocopying!¶´ But the agents did not want this hot falafel ball. Al-Khilewi had this to say about Usama bin Laden during a pretext phone call we placed to this defector in 1998: When Sheikh bin Laden and others established groups of Arab mujahedeen (fighters) in Afghanistan in the early 1980s, they had a poor reputation in the Arab street due to their being armed and trained by the CIA, and their being funded by Saudi intelligence. Things changed after the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan, when the mujahedeen turned against corrupt Arab regimes, giving bin Laden a good reputation among the Islamic opposition. Today, bin Laden has thousands of fighters and tens of thousands of supporters all over the world. He is very strong militarily and financially. He has two programs. The first is a secret, and I can't comment on it because I myself don't know it. The second is his public program, some parts of which I agree with and others I do not. On this basis of his public speeches and releases, I can say I mainly disagree with bin Laden's belief -- shared by some others in the Saudi opposition -that all our problems stem from America. They conclude we must fight everything that is American. You ask why would the Jewish Defense Organization interest Saudi intelligence? I don't fully understand why, but I do know the following: Saudi intelligence informed headquarters of having installed surveillance equipment µin their place.¶ In June 1994, when I did an interview on this subject with Barbara Walters on 20/20, the Saudi ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar, appeared on the same program and denied any such spying. However, a few days later, when I spoke to Bandar on

the phone, he admitted to such activities and claimed that the Jewish Defense Organization was planning to bomb a Saudi Airline jet. This confirmation from him is now undeniable because I have him on tape.30 In the post September 11th environment the FBI changed its mind about accepting the stolen documents even if it offended the Saudis. We sent Abu Jihad to the Jew Michael Wildes¶ office pretending to be a reporter. Wildes showed him two telexes that had been translated by the FBI and now bore little official stickers on them. One of them concerned the training of so-called terrorist organizations in Syria while the other dealt with killing Americans on a commercial airliner with a biological agent that was to be planted in the airliners ventilation system. Al-Khilewi remains in hiding. THE SAUDI ENIGMA Saudi Brothers were utilized in the September 11th Raids because the Americans looked at the Saudis as their allies, thanks to Saudi complicity in the aggressions of the Gulf War, and although Saudi presence at numerous flight-training schools aroused suspicion, it was not enough to cross a critical threshold. Fifteen of the nineteen September 11th martyrs were Saudi. CAPPS, the Federal Aviation Administration's computer passenger screening system, flagged nine of the nineteen September 11th Shaheeds and their baggage was screened for explosives.31 And though the Pentagon has only recently identified the 598 fighters jailed at its military prison in Cuba, other sources estimate that 100 of them are Saudi, the largest or one of the largest groups of prisoners. The Saudis have spent more than $1 million to provide American lawyers for those detained or questioned here since Holy Tuesday. John Pistole, assistant director of the FBI's counterterrorism division said, ³To us, that is tantamount to buying off witnesses.´32 The Congressional Joint Committee looking into our September 11th New York, Virginia and Ohio Raids reported: According to a U. S. Government official, it was clear from about 1996 that the Saudi Government would not co-operate with the United States on matters relating to Usama bin Laden. [Deleted - Dale Watson], reemphasized the lack of Saudi co-operation and stated that there was little prospect of future co-operation regarding bin Laden. [Deleted] told the Joint Inquiry that he believed the U.S. Government¶s hope of eventually obtaining Saudi co-operation was unrealistic because Saudi assistance to the U.S. Government on this matter is contrary to Saudi national interests. Crown Prince Abdullah even went as far as blaming al-Qaeda activities on the Jews:

Zionism is behind it. It has become clear now. It has become clear to us. I don't say, I mean. It is not 100 percent, but 95 percent that the Zionist hands are behind what happened.´33 Al-Qaeda has major issues with the Saudi Royal family, and the Saudi Royal family most certainly has issues with us. But self-preservation is the first rule of nature so many Saudi aristocrats have secretly made deals with us, but must conceal this and pretend to repress the forces of Islamism in order to receive American military aid, a situation not unlike that of Pakistan. No members of the Saudi aristocracy have been killed or injured in our attacks, for though al-Qaeda knows the Saudis are murderers under Islamic law we will take their diyah.34 After the Saudis realized they could not eliminate Usama bin Laden (they tried to do so between 1996 and 1997) in 1998 the Saudis began covertly funneling money to our representatives, as the Saudi monarchy knew that it was vulnerable. In 1980, the average income in Saudi Arabia was $20,000. By the mid-1990¶s it was $7,000. Unemployment is 28% among 20 to 24-year-olds, and at least 10% among 25 to 29-year-olds, making Saudi Arabia a fertile recruiting ground for Islamism. Economic distress has already forced many poor Saudis into the open arms of Islamic charities that we control. PRINCESS HAIFA, OMAR AL-BAYOUMI, OSAMA BASSNAN Princess Haifa Al-Faisal is the husband of Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar and the daughter of the late King Faisal who was assassinated by Islamists in 1975. In Saudi terms she is considered progressive as she sponsors Islamic schools for girls.35 She is the sister of the former Saudi intelligence chief Prince Turki al-Faisal. After the East African Embassy Event Prince Turki al-Faisal visited Afghanistan. Usama bin Laden commented, The visits and the requests were met by great surprise, specially when Prince Turki al-Faisal came to Afghanistan, in the aftermath of the explosions in Nairobi and Dar-es-Salam. Even if there was a relationship between myself and those who carried out the explosions, it is none of the business of the Saudi regime to come and ask for handing over Osama bin Laden, who was stripped of his (Saudi) identification card which is his right by birth, and whose assets were frozen, and who was forced to sever all relations with his kin. This was met be great surprise on the part of the Taliban state (Afghanistan). They had expected that the American government would be the one to come back to them after the failure of the last visit by (U.S. envoy) Mr. Richardson, who was rebuffed by the Taliban, may God give them the rewards they deserve. Price Turki al-

Faisal also returned empty handed. It was as if he came as an envoy of the American government.36 Prince Turki al-Faisal has been ordered to respond to a subpoena issued by an American court wherein some of the relatives of the civilian casualties of the September 11th Raids claim as the head of Saudi intelligence, he had made a deal with the Taliban during a meeting in 1998. Their law firm alleges that Prince al-Faisal dropped the extradition attempt against Usama bin Laden and pledged Saudi aid to the Taliban in exchange for an agreement that bin Laden would not target the Saudi government or the Saudi Royal Family.37 Prince Turki denied these allegations, ³I knew him as a volunteer in the war against the Soviets, that's when I knew him. I had no dealings with him after that.´38 Others members of the Saudi Royal Family had death in store for Usama: In 1998 Prince Salman bin Abdul-Aziz, who had stripped Usama bin Laden of Saudi citizenship in 1994 was alleged to have offered Siddiq Ahmed Turkistani an ethnic Uighur who was born and raised in Saudi Arabia $267,000 to assassinate bin Laden39 In late 2001 Saddiq Ahmad Turkistani was freed from a Taliban prison in Kandahar, Afghanistan, and told reporters and U.S. officials that he had been wrongly imprisoned for allegedly plotting to kill Osama bin Laden. Intelligence officials and U.N. representatives told Siddiq Ahmed Turkistani they would help him find refuge, possibly in Pakistan. Instead, in January 2002, Siddiq Ahmed Turkistani was taken to a U.S. military base in Afghanistan, then strapped into an airplane and sent to Gitmo. Siddiq Ahmed Turkistani told his American lawyers that he was deported to Afghanistan from Saudi Arabia sometime in 1997, after he was jailed for alleged possession of hashish, a very serious offense in the Land of the Two Mosques carrying a long prison term. Turkistani said he was given fake Afghan identification and put on a plane from Jeddah to Kabul because the Saudi government did not recognize him as a citizen, not because he was on a covert mission. He said that Afghan officials detained him for six days before releasing him. He said he made his way to Khost, Afghanistan, and befriended an Iraqi man. Before long, four Arab al-Qaeda members arrested he and his friend. Siddiq Ahmed Turkistani said he was accused of being a Saudi spy, interrogated and tortured. Fearing for his life, after 20 days of severe beatings and sleep deprivation, Turkistani said he ultimately gave what he called a "lengthy story" about how the Saudis had sent him there to kill bin Laden. He was turned over to the Taliban and held in Kandahar for more than four years.40 Bin Laden asserted in a statement in December 1998 that Turkistani and two accomplices had been hired by Saudi Arabian officials to kill him and failed. Bin Laden: Praise Be to God. An attempt on my life took place when the Saudi regime sent a number of people, who, though were born in the land of the two mosques (Saudi Arabia), were deprived of citizenship. The Saudi regime exploited this weakness and offered them large sums of money in return for trying to assassinate me.

By the Grace of God, Praise and Glory be to him, the Taliban were able to arrest one of them. His name is Saddik Ahwad. He confessed that Prince Salman bin-Abdel Aziz, the brother of the current king of the land of the two mosques, has promised to give him citizenship and a million rials if he was able, together with two other colleagues of his, to assassinate Osama bin-laden. We were not hurt. For us God suffices and as I said lifetime is pre-ordained.41 A false news story was floated that bin Laden was poisoned, suffered kidney failure, but survived in a weakened state. Before and after photos of bin Laden from this period revealed that he did not look any different than he always did. Our former ally Vincent Cannistraro, who helped fund the Islamists war against the Afghani Communist puppets, spread this disinformation to cause demoralization in the Islamic Movement.42 It wasn¶t until November 2002 that the Americans made public their suspicions that al-Qaeda was on the Saudi¶s ³pad.´ A Congressional intelligence oversight committee discovered that in 1998 Princess Haifa made an initial payment of $15,000 then began donating $2,000 a month to Omar Al-Bayoumi, ostensibly for medical care for his ailing Jordanian wife. She donated a total of $130,000 to Omar Al-Bayoumi along with $550,000 to the Ar-Ribat al-Islami Mosque.43 Omar Al-Bayoumi was a unemployed 30year-old Saudi whose father was sending him $3,000 a month for support while he was in school. He regularly attended the Islamic Center of San Diego, was married with children and was working on a master's or other advanced degree. An undetermined amount of Princess Haifa Al-Faisal¶s money found its way to the September 11th martyrs Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaq al-Hazmi, when they lived in San Diego thanks to Omar Al-Bayoumi. The apartment manager of the dwelling in which Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Midhar lived told the FBI that Omar Al-Bayoumi paid their first month's rent and security deposit because they had not yet established a local bank account and the apartment complex would not accept cash. Midhar and Hazmi used their own names on the lease. In 1998 Omar Al-Bayoumi¶s apartment manager contacted the FBI to report her suspicions regarding Omar Al-Bayoumi¶s activities. The manager reported that the U.S. Postal Inspection Service had notified her in March 1998 that Omar Al-Bayoumi had been sent a "suspicious" package from the Middle East. According to the manager, the package had broken open and had a number of wires protruding from it. She reported further that the apartment complex maintenance man had noticed a number of wires protruding beneath the bathroom sink in Omar Bayoumi's master bedroom. She reported that there had been large meetings of men, who based upon their dress appeared to be Middle Eastern, gathering in Bayoumi's apartment on weekend evenings. On September 8, 1998, the San Diego FBI opened a preliminary inquiry on

Al-Bayoumi. The assigned agent checked FBI indices for further information regarding Al-Bayoumi and conducted other investigative steps. The agent contacted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service in reference to the alleged "suspicious" package sent to AlBayoumi. A postal inspector advised the FBI agent that "suspicious" did not necessarily mean "nefarious" and the vast majority of suspicious packages were benign. The postal inspector reviewed the report relating to the Al-Bayoumi package and told the agent that the package had been deemed "suspicious" because it had no customs papers or appropriate postage and originated in Saudi Arabia. According to the report, there was no record of any wires protruding from the package, Al-Bayoumi had retrieved the package, and it was no longer called a "suspect parcel." How did the package get delivered without postage or a customs declaration? A review of Omar Al-Bayoumi and Khalid al-Midhar's financial records after September 11th indicated that Al-Bayoumi was reimbursed for the rent and security on the same day it was paid so it would not appear as if Omar Bayoumi was fronting for the Brothers. On March 20, 2000, a long distance telephone call was placed from Khalid alMidhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi's Mount Ada apartment to Midhar¶s father-in-laws home. A record of the call was captured in Midhar and Hazmi¶s toll records. After the September 11th Raids, the call was identified through a record check on out-going calls, as there was no program that traced incoming calls placed to the Sanaa safehouse. Had this been available it is possible that Hazmi and al-Midhar might have come to the attention of the FBI. One of the FBI¶s best sources in San Diego, Abdussattar Shaikh, informed the FBI that he thought that Omar al-Bayoumi must be an intelligence officer for Saudi Arabia. This was because Omar al-Bayoumi reportedly delivered $400,000 to the Islamic Kurdish community in El Cajon, California in order to build a mosque. Of course the Saudis denied any connection to him.44 Interestingly enough Abdussattar Shaikh told Nawaf al-Hazmi to stay away from Bayoumi because of his alleged association with the Saudi government, as if he knew Nawaf al-Hazmi had something to hide. The FBI agent received no further substantive information in response to various information checks on Omar Al-Bayoumi. According to the agent, the only remaining option was to conduct an interview of Omar Al-Bayoumi. After her supervisor consulted with fellow FBI agents who were working on a large, sensitive ³counterterrorism´ investigation involving an alleged ³terrorist organization,´ the supervisor instructed the agent not to conduct the subject interview of Omar Al-Bayoumi. The FBI file indicates that the decision not to conduct an interview was due to an investigation that included a proposed proactive element. The FBI believed that the benefits of interviewing Omar AlBayoumi did not justify the risk to the proposed operation. The Bureau had connected him with us, but closed its inquiry on Omar al-Bayoumi in July 1999 because it was leading to our connection with the Saudis, not because an interview would compromise its operation. Princess Haifa had hosted a dinner for Alma Powell (the mental case bipolar wife of U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell) and this might have proven embarrassing. The responsible FBI agent said that she closed the inquiry because the original counterterrorism complaint turned out to be false and she had developed no
other information of such significance as to justify continuing the investigation.45 Another possible source of suspicion was Omar al-Bayoumi¶s passport, which contained a cachet that intelligence investigators associate with possible adherence to Islamism. It is a marking that can be obtained by especially devout Muslims and by those in alQaeda. The 9/11 Commission believed the marking suggested the need for further inquiry.46 Omar Al-Bayoumi was charged with visa fraud47 but was in Britain when the charges were lodged, where this crime is not an extraditable offense. Since some of the money did go for medical expenses, it will be impossible for the FBI to prove that this was Saudi pay-off money and since there was no need for Omar Al-Bayoumi to know anything about the September 11th operation, the his unwitting complicity will go unpunished, Alhumdulallah. This was genius, for in our code, the words ³medical expenses´ meant ³Jihad.´ After Mohammed Al Hasan al-Moayad was arrested in Germany the FBI reported, ³Al-Moayad told CI-1 that he explained to Associate 3 that CI-1 was not only going to help with the µoven¶ but take care of µmedical expenses¶ in Germany.´48 After Omar Al-Bayoumi left the United States in mid-2001, Osama Bassnan, who the Americans have deported for visa fraud, took over the funding operation. Bassnan was a friend of Osama ³Sam´ Mustafa and lived in an apartment complex in San Diego across the street from Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Midhar. The FBI did not investigate Osama Bassnan before September 11th, but had been made aware of him on several occasions. In May 1992, the State Department provided the FBI with a box of Arabic documents recovered from an abandoned car that was somehow linked to Osama Bassnan that concerned the Eritrean Islamic Jihad (EIJ) Movement. The Eritrean Islamic Jihad had been connected to bin Laden as of 1996. A high-level member of the Eritrean Islamic Jihad was on bin Laden¶s Shura Council. The FBI opened a counterterrorism inquiry on the Eritrean Islamic Jihad, but, having failed to develop information that would predicate further investigation, closed the investigation in December 1992. In 1993, the FBI received reports that Osama Bassnan had hosted a party for Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman in Washington, D.C. in 1992. However, the FBI did not open an investigation. After September 11th, the FBI developed information clearly indicating that Bassnan is a Brother but in March 2004 the FBI concluded that Omar alBayoumi and Osama Bassnan were not intelligence agents for the Saudis.49 The Inspector General of the Department of Justice reported, In examining the San Diego Field Office's handling of the Bayoumi investigation and the informational asset; we also found that, despite the fact that FBI Headquarters had established counterterrorism as a top

priority of the FBI in 1998, the San Diego Field Office was continuing to pursue drug trafficking as its top priority in 2001. Our review of the Hazmi/al-Midhar chronology revealed no appreciable shift in resources by the FBI's San Diego Field Office in response to these changed priorities. We found that prior to September 11, 2001, the actual investigative priority for the San Diego Field Office was drug trafficking. According to former San Diego Special Agent in Charge William Gore, the highest concentration of FBI agents and resources in San Diego was directed at combating drug trafficking based on the FBI's process and procedures used each year to set priorities in its field offices. He said that white-collar crime was the office's second priority, and violent crime was its third priority«While the FBI made counterterrorism its top priority on paper, the FBI took few steps to ensure that field offices complied with this directive.50 OTHER INSTANCES OF SAUDI SUPPORT The German police found the business card of Muhammad J. Fakihi, chief of the Islamic Affairs branch of the Saudi Embassy in Berlin in Mounir el-Motassadeq¶s apartment along with records of numerous calls to the Islamist Dar al-Assima al-Nahr group in Saudi Arabia beginning in December 2000, when the September 11th Operation was underway. Cell phone numbers of the leaders of Dar al-Assima al-Nahr were found saved on Brother Motassadeq¶s computer.51 Muhammad J. Fakihi was in contact with Brother Ihsan Garnaoui, who trained Taliban troops for five years, as both men had attended the Al Nur Mosque in Berlin. When the United States pressured Germany into declaring Muhammad J. Fakihi a persona non grata he fled from Germany and has not been heard from since.52 Thanks to American pressure after 9/11, the Saudis began missing protection money pay-offs so al-Qaeda did some actions within the Land of Two Mosques. In February 2003 Robert Dent, 37, was shot 10 times as he waited in his silver Honda car at traffic lights in a residential area of Riyadh.53 Dent was a commercial officer for defense giant BAe (British Aerospace) who had spent 10 years in the Middle East. Saud bin Ali bin Nasser was arrested shortly after the incident. Security officials had examined a machine gun and bullet casings found at the scene and linked them to Bin Nasser, who is a relation of the former head of al-Qaeda in Yemen, Kamal Derwish, who died in a CIA Predator missile attack and is a member of the same clan as Qaed Salim Sinan al-Harathi, a key organizer in Cole Operation. In May 2003 the Saudi police seized 800 pounds of RDX that had been smuggled across the Yemen-Saudi border, along with hand grenades, assault rifles (purchased from the Saudi National Guard,

despite the denials of the Saudis that they were Russian made),54 ammunition, disguises and tens of thousands of dollars in cash. On May 12, 2003 al-Qaeda again struck the Vinnell Corporation, killing 34 including eight Americans. Sixty FBI agents came to the Kingdom to investigate. Jemaah Islamiah leader Abdulrahman Monsour Jabarah was implicated in this event as was Usama bin Laden: A folded handwritten letter, stained with blood, signed with the name bin Laden was found in the pocket of one of the Brothers who was killed by the Saudis after the attack. When the Saudis discovered that this activity was planned in Iran Prince Mohammad bin Nayef55, the Assistant Interior Minister for Security Affairs (the third-highest ranking official in the Interior Ministry or Mabahith the functional equivalent of the FBI in Saudi Arabia) visited there and demanded the Iranians turn over bin Laden's son and other Saudis, including the cousin of one of the Riyadh bombers, Turki Dandani. The Iranians refused to do so.56 In November 2003 al-Qaeda struck a compound in Riyadh where Arabs and Westerners lived together and sinned together. In December 2003 al-Qaeda staged an unsuccessful assassination attempt on Major General Abdelaziz al-Huweirini, the kingdom's top counterterrorism official, an attack that the Saudi government has never made public. Major General Abdelaziz al-Huweirini was lightly wounded but his brother was seriously wounded! Later in that month a major from the Mabahith narrowly missed death.57 In January 2004 Usama bin Laden issued this statement, It has become clear that the rulers [of the Gulf States] are not qualified to apply the religion and defend the Muslims. In fact, they have provided evidence that they are implementing the schemes of the enemies of the nation and religion and that they are qualified to abandon the countries and peoples. YASSIN AL-KADI AKA YASSIN AL-QAEDA Other Saudis without whom al-Qaeda could not exist include Yassin al-Kadi who the U.S. government designated as a foreign terrorist entity. Yassin Al-Kadi was a Director of Global Diamond Resources, based in Nevada. Along with al-Kadi on the board of directors were representatives of the Bin Laden family who invested in Global Diamond Resources a year before al-Kadi did.58 The diamond industry allowed alQaeda to launder millions of dollars through the purchase of illegally mined diamonds. A pound of diamonds in 2002 was worth around $225,000, compared with a pound of cash that was worth $45,000 and a pound of gold, which was worth $4,800. Between 1993 and 2001 al-Qaeda raised funds and hid its assets this way and al-Qaeda even developed its own diamond mines.59 Jamal Ahmed Mohammed al-Fadl was asked about our interest in this business: He responded: ³We had started diamond and gold a mining business in Tanzania in early 1993. I was one of the directors.´ The 2004

Badkook Co. for Catering & Trading, owned by Talal Mohammed Badkook. Talal Mohammed Badkook is a member of a company along with Saleh Mohamed bin Laden, son of Mohammed bin Laden. Talal Mohammed Badkook supplied 15,000 meals to American troops during the Gulf War.61 AL-MUWAFAQ: THE BLESSED RELIEF FOUNDATION Yassin Al-Kadi, a man who wears many ghutrah¶s,62 also headed the Saudibased al-Muwafaq63 Foundation, an al-Qaeda front that transferred millions of dollars in protection money from wealthy Saudi businessmen to bin Laden. After the 1995 arrest of Ramzi Yousef the Pakistani police raided the local offices of Muwafaq in Islamabad and Mercy International (registered in Switzerland). Islamabad lawyer Farrukh Karim Qureshi said the local head of Al-Muwafaq, Amir Mehdi, was held in prison for several months before being released without charge. Qureshi also represented the Mercy International, Zahid Shaikh Mohammed, had told him the police investigation was sparked because Yousef had made a phone call to the Mercy offices.64 From January 1998 through August 1998 (after the East African Embassy Operation the account had served its purpose and was closed), bank records show alKadi transferred $1.25 million from his Geneva bank account through an associate to an alleged Al-Qaeda front company in Turkey known as Maram, the goal in Arabic.65 Mahmdouh Mahmud Salim founded Maram in December 1996 as an Istanbul travel agency. In July 1997 Turkish records show all of Mahmdouh Mahmud Salim's shares in Maram were transferred to Wael Julaidan and his business partner at Maram, Mohamed Bayazid. American Express billing records indicate that Bayazid moved from the United States to Turkey in or about April 1998. Following Bayazid's move to Turkey, telephone records of Bayazid's relatives in the United States reflect a number of calls to the number in Turkey contacted by Benevolence International Foundation (Enaam M. Arnaout) in November 1998. Moreover, telephone records for Maram in Turkey, which Mamdouh Salim admits he sold to Bayazid, reflect calls to Benevolence International Foundation in Illinois in August and September 1998. Yassin al-Kadi was listed as an original member of al-Muwafaq Foundation¶s board of directors, on the entity¶s Delaware incorporation papers filed with the State of Delaware Office of the Secretary of State on February 3, 1992.66 Yassin al-Kadi ran

USDC SDNY 02 Civil 6977 - The former director of the Al-Muwafaq office in Zagreb, Croatia was Ayadi Chafiq bin Muhammad, a Tunisian national. On October 12, 2001, the U.S. Treasury named Ayadi as a ³specially designated global terrorist´ and ordered his assets frozen. Al-Kadi first met Ayadi in 1999, when Ayadi was nominated by Wa¶el Julaydan to take over Al-Muwafaq in Bosnia.
Muwafaq from 1992 to roughly 1997, drawing some $15 million to $20 million from his fortune and contributions from his wealthy colleagues. Yassin al-Kadi is a director of the Pakistani Himont Chemical Firm. Himont USA was sold to the Montell Chemical group in 1995.67 Yassin al-Kadi was the co-owner of a chemical plant in suburban Chicago where many useful toxic chemicals were stockpiled.68 Dr. Abdul Latif Saleh of the Haramain Foundation and Yassin al-Kadi had entered into several business partnerships with one another, including a sugar importing business, a medical enterprise, and a construction business. Dr. Saleh served as the general manager of all of Yassin al-Kadi's businesses in Albania and reportedly holds ten percent of the Kadi Group's investments in Albania.69 Wael Julaidan and Yassin alKadi continue to operate with total impunity despite (false) assurances by Saudi officials that their jihadi careers had been shut down, or that they had been put under house arrest. A statement by Saudi Arabia¶s Minister of Islamic Affairs, Endowments, Dawa and Guidance, Saleh ibn Abdul Aziz Al-Sheikh provides insight into Saudi Arabia¶s resolve to close charities aiding ³terrorism.´ Toward the end of 2004 the Minister told an audience in Jeddah that al-Haramain was closed under U.S. pressure and not because the Saudi government had any "suspicions surrounding its activities." It was closed he said "to serve the general interest." The ministry, he said, was not aware of any misconduct from the Saudi charity and had not received any documented information to this effect from any side. He re-assured the audience that the Saudi government had no plans to act against any further charities, or to take any additional action against al Haramain employees. They would be free, he said, to find employment in other charities. In the meantime, al-Haramain international operations and assets, he said, would be folded into a new body named the Saudi National Commission for Charitable Works Abroad.70 INTERLOCKING DIRECTORATES Yassin al-Kadi had dealings with the defunct Islamic trust BMI Inc. The articles of incorporation for BMI, Inc. show that Soliman Biheiri, who was then an Egyptian citizen visiting the United States on a tourist visa, formed an Islamic investing firm on March 19, 1986, which became known as Bait ul-Mal, Inc. (BMI, Inc.). BMI Inc. was located in Harmon Towers, Secaucus New Jersey and was around since 1991. BMI was supposedly formed to meet the increasing needs of the Muslim community in North America for Islamically based and economically sound investment activities. The company carefully adhered to the rules of the Shari'ah in its dealings and at the same time followed the sound rules of investment. BMI presented
Julaydan has described Al-Kadi as ³a friend of the family´ to whom he recommended Ayadi for the Zagreb post.

an advanced model of business within the framework of Islamic Shari'ah by: Founding an approach to business operations which carefully followed the rules of Shari'ah; and establishing a continuous co-operation with the Muslim community and Islamic institutions in the U.S. BMI¶s divisions included the Real Estate Division, (BMI had developed property in Indianapolis, Indiana, Baltimore, Oxon Hill, Maryland and other locations) the International Trade Division, and the Venture Capital Division.71 During a civil deposition Soliman Biheiri testified that concurrently with the establishment of the Islamic Relief Organization office in Virginia, Dr. Sulaiman bin Ali Al-Ali told him that he (Al-Ali) was to receive $10 million dollars from the International Islamic Relief Organization in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, which was to be given to SanaBell, Inc. Sana-Bell, Inc. then invested $3.7 million with BMI or one of its affiliates.72 Working for the Islamic Relief Organization can be used against a Brother. Mustafa Ahmed Hamlily told this to a Military Tribunal at Gitmo, In the name of Allah the merciful, I will tell the truth. What I have already said to the interrogator was the truth. I am an innocent man. I have not committed any crimes and should not be here. I have never been in trouble nor have I ever been a member of any organization. These organizations are against my religion. By nature, I don't like Moses and problems. For this reason, I live in a remote village away from the city. If I wanted to be a combatant and participate in these activities I would have done that in my own country, For the last fifteen years, I have not any problems with anyone in my village. Anyone in my village can verify that. I am forty-five and I am not going to do anything foolish. If I were going to do these things, I would have done them when I was younger. I am a Muslim. Islam is against all terrorism, violence and problems between people. The military officer presiding over the tribunal pointed out that Mustafa Ahmed Hamlily voluntarily traveled from Mauritania, Africa to Saudi Arabia then to Islamabad, Pakistan in 1987 to work for the Islamic Relief Organization (IRO). Mustafa Ahmed Hamlily testified that his original plan was to stay in Saudi Arabia and study, but he could not get residency status. Before leaving, Mustafa Ahmed Hamlily said he went to the Islamic Relief Organization and got a job in Pakistan but not in Saudi Arabia. He also said he never worked or associated with a terrorist organization. Mustafa Ahmed Hamlily said he received weapons training on the Kalashnikov rifle while working for the Islamic Relief Organization, not for al-Qaeda. The fact the training took place near the border town of Peshawar, Pakistan, was a mere coincidence. Between 1991 and 2001, Mustafa Ahmed Hamlil traveled back and forth between Algeria, Pakistan, Yemen, and Pakistan.´73

BMI FACES THE MUSIC BMI was the subject of an FBI terrorism probe between 1998 and 1999. The FBI claimed BMI¶s investors included Hamas leaders Mousa Abu Marzook and Mohammad Salah and two siblings of Usama bin Laden. In the address book maintained on Soliman Biheiri¶s laptop computer, which was searched pursuant to his consent in mid-July 2003 Yassin al-Kadi¶s name appeared, as well as contact information for Yousef Nada who was named as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist on November 7, 2001, on the basis of his role with Al Taqwa Bank, also known as Nada Management. In addition, the name and telephone number of Sami al-Arian was found on Soliman Biheiri¶s laptop computer. The Palm Pilot of Abdurahman Alamoudi, the Chief Financial Officer of the Holy Land Foundation (a charity that funneled millions for Jihad to Hamas for decades) contained contact information for Yassin al-Kadi and Yousef Nada.74 THE ROOTS OF NAZI / ISLAMIST COLLABORATION We are Islamists, not racists and Islam is composed of many different racial groups including millions of dark-skinned Africans. Any member of any racial group is welcome to convert to Islam, even Jews, as Mohammad unsuccessfully attempted to convert them. We follow the Qu¶ran, not Mein Kampf. Dr. Zawahiri wrote, ³The freedom and democracy that you call to is for yourselves and for white race only; as for the rest of the world, you impose upon them your monstrous, destructive policies and Governments, which you call the American friends.´ But men like Youssef Nada have shown al-Qaeda the wisdom of working with kuffar Nazis, men such as Francois Genoud, who along with Nada founded and al-Nada Management. Youssef Nada joined the armed branch of the Muslim Brotherhood as a young man in Egypt during World War II. The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by Hasan alBanna a humble 22-year-old Egyptian elementary school teacher, ostensibly as an Islamic revivalist movement following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. Al-Banna the Elder was a devout admirer of Adolph Hitler and wrote to him frequently. So persistent was he in his admiration of the new Nazi Party that in the 1930's, Al-Banna and the Muslim Brotherhood became a secret arm of Nazi intelligence. The Brotherhood was in effect the Islamist-arm of the Third Reich and had much in common with the new Nazi doctrines. It hated Jews; it hated democracy; and it hated Western culture. Committed to the defense of private property and capitalism, the Brotherhood harbored a particular and savage hatred of communism and Marxism. It became the official policy of the Third

Reich to secretly develop the Muslim Brotherhood as the fifth column, an army inside Egypt. When war broke out, the Muslim Brotherhood promised in writing that they would rise up and help General Rommell and make sure that no English or American soldier was left alive in Cairo or Alexandria. On February 12, 1949 Hasan al-Banna was gunned down in the streets of Cairo. The assassins were security agents of King Farouk's government that had become worried about the growing strength of the Brotherhood. The king's government had outlawed the Brotherhood in December 1948, and the Brotherhood had responded by assassinating Prime Minister Mahmud Fahmi al-Nuqrashi the following month (January, 1949). The ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood lives on and is embodied in its flag depicts a Qu¶ran guarded by two swords. Our faith that violence should be employed to defend our beliefs has never been hidden and never will be. We the Elder¶s of Islam are the direct descendants of the early Muslim Brotherhood and it was only natural to join forces with Francois Genoud a Swiss lawyer who funded Hitler and served as a German agent during World War II. After the war, Genoud underwrote the clandestine Odessa organization, which helped Nazi fugitives Adolf Eichmann, Alois Brunner and Klaus Barbie and others avoid persecution by escaping to the Middle East and South America. Youssef Nada and several of his Brothers were recruited by German military intelligence, which sought to undermine British colonial rule in Egypt. A committee of Muslim scholars that is headed by Sheik Youssef al-Qaradawi of the Egyptian branch of the Brotherhood of Islam75 assists the Nada Management board.76 The committee¶s purpose is to make sure Nada conforms to Islamic doctrine such as a ban on reba.77 It is very difficult for our economy to function without reba. To circumvent this the Islamic financial system employs the concept of participation in the enterprise, utilizing the funds at risk on a profit-and-loss-sharing basis. The Islamic depositor owns part of the bank and as the bank becomes worth more so does the shareholder¶s stake in it. If one buys a thousand dollar ³interest´ in a bank and the bank shows a profit of 10% each year than you get eleven hundred dollars back at the end of the year. This is not a matter of semantics; our foremost religious scholars have approved this. During his torture in Egypt Mahmud Abouhalima was said to have attacked Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman for having kept our funds in an interest bearing account. He was also reported to have told his interrogators El-Sayyid Nosair did not kill Kahane but was part of a diversionary effort.78 He told the Egyptians anything that they wished him to say, even that his Sheikh was a fake and that an Egyptian did not kill Kahane. FBI Special Agent Robert Wright conducted an investigation of our financing that focused on BMI, Inc. and BMI was named as a conduit for Hamas related funds in a 1998 FBI court filing.79 In an affidavit

executed March 21, 2002, SA Wright stated that in the course of that investigation he had subpoenaed both Soliman Biheiri and a person identified as the Vice President of BMI. In response to those events, a BMI accountant contacted an FBI Agent and stated ³funds the accountant was transferring overseas on behalf of the company may have been used to finance the embassy bombings in East Africa in 1998´ an oblique reference to the Maram Travel Agency. In December 2002 FBI Special Agents Robert Wright and John Vincent said they were called off criminal investigations of suspected Brothers linked to the deadly bombings of the two U.S. Embassies in East Africa. Wright and Vincent, then based in Chicago, were assigned to track a connection to a suspected cell that would later lead them to a link with Usama bin Laden. Wright said that when he pressed for authorization to open a criminal investigation into the activities of Yassin al-Kadi his supervisor stopped him.80 In August 2003 Soliman Biheiri was indicted for unlawful procurement of naturalization and making materially false statements. Soliman S. Biheiri was convicted in October 2003 of lying under oath to obtain U.S. citizenship. Instead of the usual sixmonth sentence prosecutors asked for 10 years based on his connection to us. U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis III ruled that although Soliman Biheiri managed al-Qaeda money there was no evidence he ³intended to support a crime of terrorism" by obtaining U.S. citizenship. Ellis sentenced Soliman S. Biheiri to the maximum 12 months in prison after which he was to be deported "These prosecutors cannot make up for the prosecutors in the '90s who were asleep at the switch," Judge Ellis said. But just before his release he was charged with making false statements to federal investigators by denying a business relationship with Mousa Abu Marzook and Sami al-Arian.81 Yassin al-Kadi was an investor in Ptech Software, whose offices were ransacked by the FBI in December 2002. Dr. Hussein Ibrahim, the former BMI contact man, was the chief computer scientist at Ptech. Jeffrey Goins, a former Ptech executive alerted the FBI via e-mail on October 19, 2001, that al-Kadi was an investor in the in Ptech, however, Goins continued to work with Ptech throughout 2002, even selling Ptech software to the Executive Office of the White House in April 2002. Soon after the September 11th Raids, FBI agents interviewed Suheil Laher, an employee of Ptech, who was involved with the Islamic charity Care International. The FBI investigated Care International, a Muslim fund-raising group, because the FBI thought it was linked to AlKifah Refugee Center.82 Al-Kifah¶s Boston office on Commonwealth Avenue was located in the same suite that Care International listed in its 1993 incorporation documents. The Al-Kifah Refugee Center registered a Web site that has been used by Care International. And the militant Islamic newsletter Al-Hussam (The Sword) listed its publisher as The Al-Kifah Refugee Center until April 1993, after which it listed Care International as its publisher. The newsletter¶s address also is the one on Commonwealth Avenue.

GAMAL ABDEL-HAFIZ Yassin al-Kadi enjoyed the reputation of being an upstanding Saudi businessman. Those loyal to him would be rewarded by him in this world, and by Allah in the next world. And, Praise Be to Allah, a Muslim FBI agent decided to take the more valuable of the two rewards. Arab FBI Agent Gamal Abdel-Hafiz thwarted the investigation of Yassin al-Kadi two years before the September 11th Raids and never received not even one riyal for his efforts. In an affidavit dated March 21, 2000 FBI agent Robert Wright and John Vincent83 alleged that Gamal Abdel-Hafiz refused to co-operate with an FBI probe into BMI by stating, ³a Muslim does not record another Muslim despite the fact he had been approached by al-Kadi¶s associate Soliman Biheiri.´84 Abdel-Hafiz flat out refused to secretly record Biheiri. In 2000 Barry Carmody, a 34-year FBI veteran who worked on counter-intelligence in the agency¶s Tampa office, and is now retired, stated: ³I asked S.A. Gamal Abdel-Hafiz to record a telephone conversation during a meeting with an individual involved in an open FBI criminal investigation [Sami Al-Arian]. Abdel-Hafiz refused to record this telephone conversation, saying he would make the call but would not record it.´85 Of course the logical outcome of this thinking must be, ³a Muslim does not become an FBI agent either´ because wiretaps and ELSUR and entrapping Brothers is about all that they do. Who is this hero of Islam? Gamal Abdel-Hafiz, born in Cairo, Egypt graduated from Al-Azar University with a Bachelor degree in language and translation. He had military experience in the Egyptian army then came to the United States in 1984. He worked a translator for an import-export business owned by his brother then went to Saudi Arabia for a year where he worked as a translator for the Air Defense Forces. Upon his return to the United States he worked as a convenience store manager in the ghetto neighborhoods of Fort Worth, Texas then became an FBI translator who worked on the case of Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman.86 During this show trial he was asked: Q. You yourself own cassettes and tapes of the sheik¶s sermons do you not, Mr. Abdel-Hafiz? A. Yes, ma¶am. Abdel-Hafiz was questioned about the conversation that Salem reported had taken place between Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman and Abu Abdullah, that is Usama bin Laden:

Q. Mr. Gamal Hafiz, to go back a little bit, Exhibit 713T is a transcript of a conversation between Sheik Omar, and a person named Abdallah in Pakistan, is that right is that right? A. Yes, that is correct. Q. This part of the conversation was picked up while the sheik was actually dialing Pakistan, is that right? A. Yes, ma¶am was dialing. Q. And I think we ended up Friday by saying that in your translation there was no word such as troops or army in that conversation, is that right? A. No, ma¶am, there were not. Q. And no mention of moving the troops to Afghanistan and then to Egypt, is that right? A. Not the word troops, no. The testimony of a translator is critical. In the trial of the Brothers in our Detroit cell translations have diverged. The prosecution claimed that one passage, recorded while videotaping at Disneyland, termed the site a ³rising cemetery.´ A defense translator said the passage meant ³what a lovely view.´ After Senior Airman Ahmad I. al-Halabi was arrested military investigators reviewed taped interrogations involving the Arabic-language interpreters to make sure they were not deliberately mistranslated.87 The Holy Land Foundation has charged that it was framed for laundering money for Samah (its code name for Hamas), due to faulty translation.88 Translation was pivotal in the case against Yassin Aref, 34, and Mohammed Hossain, 49, who were arrested in a sting operation in which authorities said they agreed to help FBI informant launder money to buy a shoulder-fired missile as part of a plan to assassinate Munir Akram, Pakistan's ambassador to the United Nations. A word in Yassin Aref¶s possession, written in Arabic, had referred to Mr. Aref as "commander." As it turns out, the word is Kurdish, albeit written using the Arabic alphabet and the translation may be incorrect. "Commander" could be translated as "brother," according to federal prosecutors. Nijyar Shemdin, the United States representative for the Kurdistan Regional Government in Washington, reviewed a copy of the page and said he did not see how a translation would have come up with the word "commander."89 After the Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman trial, where he testified more than any other witness, Gamal Abdel-Hafiz claimed he received numerous death threats then entered the FBI Academy and became an agent in 1996.

After working on al-Qaeda cases such as the Cole and Khobar Towers in February 2001 Abdel-Hafiz was promoted to the post of Deputy Legal Attaché in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In 2001 the FBI's Saudi office comprised a secretary, the Legat, Wilfred Samuel Rattigan, a black American who converted to Islam90 in December 2001, and his Assistant Gamal Abdel-Hafiz. Abdel-Hafiz was a pivotal figure in the investigation of the links between the Saudis and the September 11th 2001 Events. Only certain Muslim agents are allowed to hold this position, only those who truly believe in Islam. In a June 6, 2005 letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller, the Senate Judiciary Committee renewed a request for information about allegations that the FBI's Riyadh office was "delinquent in pursuing thousands of leads" related to 9/11. During the Lackawanna Sleeper Cell investigation in September 2002 AbdelHafiz flew to Bahrain to interview cell member Mukhtar al-Bakri about a e-mail Mukhtar al-Bakri had sent that read, ³The next meal will be very huge. No one will be able to withstand it except those with faith.´ Mukhtar al-Bakri was a young, unseasoned jihadi who broke down and confessed to Abdel-Hafiz. Mukhtar al-Bakri was sentenced to ten years in prison after he admitted that he provided material support to al-Qaeda by obtaining a uniform, traveling to the al-Farooq training camp near Kandahar, Afghanistan, and providing guard duty at the training camp. He also admitted receiving weapons training and meeting with Usama bin Laden while at the al-Farooq camp. Abdel-Hafiz apologized for the Brother, ³[He was an] all-American kid who loves so much what he has in America and, for some reason, some how he got involved in this.´ Abdel-Hafiz was suspended in February 2003 after his ex-wife Bertie Ann Martin, a Christian divorcee and mother of two, told the FBI that he had staged a break-in at their home in 1989 in order to collect insurance money. CAIR defended the former agent, saying this was merely anti-Arab discrimination. We understand this, but the Learned Elders of Islam believe that Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman should be given a new trial since a major Government witness has had his credibility called into question. In March 2002 Bertie Ann Abdel-Hafiz filed for federal bankruptcy. Circa January 2004 Abdel-Hafiz filed a lawsuit against current and former FBI Agents. In March 2004 a three-member FBI Disciplinary Review Board overturned his dismissal.91 The board acted after concluding that allegations that he had been involved in a 15-year-old case of insurance fraud and then lied about it to FBI investigators could not be corroborated. The rare decision by the Disciplinary Review Board, a panel of three senior FBI executives, reversed the action last year of Robert Jordan, who was then the assistant director of the FBI¶s Office of Professional Responsibility, the unit charged with policing internal misconduct. The Disciplinary Review Board noted that ³the failed polygraph examination, considering your past history with that test, were not enough to substantiate her allegations against you.´92 Abdel-Hafiz lawsuit has yet to fizz out. In February 2006 he was granted a protective order that will effectively seal the record. ³The information obtained from those records shall be disclosed by the parties to the Abdel-Hafiz v. ABC and Abdel-Hafiz v. Fox cases only through their respective

In December 1987 Rattigan was hired as a special agent with the FBI at an entry grade level. Rattigan was assigned to the New York Office, Foreign Counterintelligence Division. While working in the New York Office, Rattigan had assignments in foreign counterintelligence, drugs, undercover investigations and white-collar crime. In 1996 Rattigan transferred to the FBI office at JFK International Airport, where his duties included the investigation of crimes aboard aircrafts and terrorism, including the TWA-800 al-Qaeda takedown. In February 1999 Rattigan applied for and was transferred to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and assigned to the Office of Legal Attaché as the Assistant Legal Attaché in Saudi Arabia. The Legal Attaché job in Riyadh had responsibility for FBI activities in seven countries: Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Yemen and Qatar. As the Assistant Legal Attaché in Riyadh, Rattigan was responsible for establishing and developing liaison with local law enforcement officials in these seven countries. His duties included arranging for training in country and at the FBI Academy for local law enforcement officials and handling requests for assistance from domestic and international FBI offices. Rattigan held the position of Assistant Legal Attaché in Riyadh until July 2000. During the time he was Assistant Legal Attaché, Legal Riyadh had a permanent staff consisting of one Legal Attaché one Assistant Legal Attaché and one secretary. The Legal Attaché during this period of time was Egyptian-born FBI Agent Bassem Youssef, who treated Rattigan with disdain and disrespect because Bassem Youssef had supported another candidate for the Assistant Legal Attaché position. In June 2000 Bassem Youssef departed Riyadh and Rattigan who, in the absence of the assignment of a permanent Legal Attaché, took over Bassem Youssef¶s duties as acting Legal Attaché. While performing duties as the acting Legal Attaché, Rattigan requested an encrypted phone for ³sensitive´ communications. Although former Legal Attaché Youssef had been provided with an encrypted phone at a ³secret´ level, which was in violation of diplomatic security rules, Rattigan was never at any time provided with such a phone.
. US District Court Northern District of Texas (Dallas) Civil Case 3:06-mc-00014
In July 2000 Rattigan was appointed to the vacant position of Legal Attaché Riyadh. At the beginning of his tenure as Legal Attaché Riyadh, Rattigan informed his superiors at the FBI, including Unit Chief Knowles, that in order to perform effectively as Legal Attaché Riyadh, Rattigan would have to receive additional support and training from the Bureau. On October 12, 2000 Gamel Abdel-Hafiz began a temporary duty assignment (³TDY´) as an assistant to Rattigan in Riyadh. On the same date, the USS Cole was attacked in Aden harbor, Yemen. Because this attack occurred in the jurisdiction of Legal Attaché Riyadh, the amount of work required to respond increased greatly. Rattigan was required to arrange for a trip to the region by then FBI Director Louis Freeh and to set up meetings for him with Yemeni and United States officials in Yemen. Even though the workload had increased because of the attack on the USS Cole, Rattigan was informed that the Bureau had not made a previously discussed shifting of territorial responsibility to lessen the burden on the Riyadh office. After being promoted to Legal Attaché Rattigan, acting through supervisory personnel, including Investigatory Service Division / International Operations Branch Deputy Assistant Director Leslie Kaciban Jr.,94 Investigatory Service Division / International Operations Branch Section Chief Michael Pyszczymuka,95 Investigatory Service Division / International Operations Branch Unit Chief Cary Gleicher,96 and SSA Donovan Leighton attempted to force Rattigan to either seek transfer out of Riyadh or resign from the Bureau. Leslie Kaciban inexplicably directed that Rattigan cease all contact that he had with officials from the United Arab Emirates regarding the establishment of the Middle Eastern Law Enforcement Training Center, even though that work was an important part of Rattigan¶s work in Legat Riyadh. Supervisory Special Agent (³SSA´) Swinkey falsely reported to Kaciban that Rattigan was continuing to arrange a meeting with UAE officials to discuss training. Upon receiving Swinkey¶s false report, Kaciban called Rattigan and threatened to, in Kaciban¶s words, ³cut (Rattigan¶s) balls off,´ a comment which Rattigan understood to be direct evidence of racial bias against him. Cary Gleicher, Rattigan¶s immediate supervisor, inappropriately went over the head of Rattigan, and without informing Rattigan, sought information directly from the Saudi government concerning an ongoing investigation. In doing so, Cary Gleicher discussed the matter first with former Legat Bassem Youssef, who had been gone from Riyadh for almost a year at that point, and not with Rattigan. On another occasion following 9/11, Rattigan requested additional resources from Cary Gleicher and Michael Pyszcmuka to follow up on leads coming into Legat Riyadh. These resources were either consistently denied or delayed for inexplicable reasons. On October 3, 2001, during a discussion of the anticipated support to be provided the Saudi Mabahith, Kaciban stated in connection with a discussion about the PENTTBOMB investigation, ³Let¶s see how much his (Rattigan¶s) Arab brothers are going to help him on this one.´ (Rattigan had not yet converted but must have expressed his desire to do so). In October 2001 Cary Gleicher visited the Riyadh office and met with Rattigan. Rattigan continued to request additional resources, as well as the authority to arm himself and his staff because of significant and credible threats to the United States Embassy in Riyadh that were made after 9/11.

In April 2001 Pyszczymuka was accused of having hired a Russian hacker to break into FSB computers. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2001/04/11/whack11.xml 96 . Gleicher became Assistant Legat in Tel Aviv then was transferred to India where he became Legat.
Gleicher¶s and Investigatory Service Division / International Operations Branch management failed to respond in a timely fashion to these requests. At some point, Kaciban, Gleicher and Pyszczymuka discontinued communicating with Rattigan. The few times they were in contact, their approach to Rattigan was hostile, demeaning and/or condescending, and reflected their inability to set aside their own racial and religious animus in order to deal with Rattigan in a professional manner. Upon their return from a TDY assignment in Riyadh, the returning TDYers were consistently questioned by ISD supervisors about Rattigan in a way designed give the clear impression that Rattigan was acting in a way that was disloyal. When Special Agent Beth Babyak returned from temporary duty in Riyadh Michael Pyszczymuka questioned her for 90 minutes. Babyak described the interview as an attempt to coerce her into making derogatory statements against Legat Riyadh in general and Rattigan in particular. In October 2001 Rattigan planned a two-day trip to liaison with UAE officials in order to remove the obstacles that existed to the free flow of information from the UAE relative to ongoing investigations being conducted by the Bureau, including PENTTBOM. On or about October 23, 2001, Rattigan advised Unit Chief Susan Curtis97 of this proposed trip and received her concurrence. However, approximately two days before the scheduled trip, Rattigan received an e-mail communication from Michael Pyszczymuka directing Rattigan not to take the trip, even though Pyszczymuka had not even talked to Rattigan about the trip. This kind of conduct is evidence of how supervisory personnel in the Bureau did not want Rattigan to succeed, even at the expense of compromising or delaying important investigations, including the 9/11 investigations, than being conducted by the Bureau. Rattigan, or RatAgain, as his fellow FBI Agents call him, has given al-Qaeda a glimpse into the disarray of American Diplomatic Installations in Saudi Arabia where fifteen of the nineteen September 11th Shaheeds obtained their U.S. travel visas. Rattigan has engaged the law firm of Rabinowitz and Boudin to pursue his claim against the FBI. The Communist Jew Rabinowitz¶s prominent clients included the government of the Republic of Cuba, Communists Paul Robeson, Alger Hiss and Fidel Castro. Rabinowitz was the counsel to many Communist and Soviet front groups. The Communist Jew Boudin¶s father was a founder of the Communist Party of the USA and Boudin, along with his terrorist daughter, were both godless Marxists. Why would a Muslim engage this law firm to pursue his (halal) beef with the FBI? Because both Rattigan and Rabinowitz & Boudin wish to hamstring the FBI so that America¶s enemies can destroy it. BASSEM YOUSEF: THEY WOULDN¶T LET POOR BASSEM PLAY IN ANY 9/11 GAMES Rattigan¶s boss, Bassem Yousef, was an Egyptian who became a naturalized US citizen and joined the FBI in 1988 then, like Rattigan and Abdel-Hafiz filed a lawsuit against it after the September 11th Raids. This is extracted from Bassem¶s deposition:
. FBI Agent subject of TV Series The X-Files http://www.democrats.org.au/speeches/index.htm?speech_id=335&display=1
Q. Who do you believe discriminated against you? A. Everybody that was involved in the process, - in the EDSP (Executive Development Selection Program) process, for that particular job, meaning the SANS (ph) board or the first career board. Q. Do you think that each person who served on the career board individually discriminated against you? Or do you think it was a collective discrimination, if you understand what I mean? A. No, I don't. I don't understand. Q. Do you think they all got together and decided we're not going to promote Bassem Youssef because he's from the Middle East? Or do you think they all individually felt, I don't know if we want to put this person on the position because he's from the Middle East, and so therefore, that's why you didn't get risk? A. I can give my opinion on this? ...I will tell you a story of an actual meeting I had with Sherry Farrar, the Assistant Director for administration. This was around August 2002. She called me, and she mentioned that Congressman Wolff's office basically asked her to get involved in my issue. And she called me and she said, ³Would you come to my office?´ I went in, and she said, do you mind if I get involved? And I said, absolutely not. I'm begging for someone to be involved. We're not getting anyone to come to the table. And we had a nice discussion. And she was saying well, what is this all about? And I told her, I said, since 9/11, which I think is an overarching issue here, much more so than just the SIOC (Strategic Information and Operations Center), and I'll speak about both«Well, it just so happens that it links with this here. For having my background in counterterrorism which is extensive, is really an understatement. It is exceptional in terms of the work that I've done. And much of it has been redacted anyway that shouldn't have been redacted, because not all of it was classified. And not to be called in after 9/11, when specifically on the next morning, on Wednesday morning, and I went to NACIC (National Counterintelligence Center) or the NCIX, (National Counterintelligence Executive) and the deputy executive who was under Dave Szady came into my office unsolicited, and she said to me, pack your bags, you're a short timer. With your counterterrorism experience the FBI has to pull you in right now, because they're pulling everybody from all over including folks who are not working counterterrorism. And I assumed the same thing, just like everybody else that called me from all over the place, saying, you must be very busy, and I wasn't doing anything. I never got pulled once to do anything in counterterrorism, when I've seen people who had no counterterrorism experience be pulled it to make decisions about how to work this Investigation.
After 9/11 Ashcroft began a program of ³ethnic cleansing´ within the FBI and agents with Middle Eastern backgrounds were investigated as possible double agents or taken off ³terrorism´ assignments. Bassem was going to be sent to the Office of the Budget, however, after the protested he was assigned to DocEx ± the document exploitation section that examined paper found in jihadi caves in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Bassem: They never called it a unit, they just said, "You go report to DocEx. And I'd never heard of that before, so I was kind of intrigued a little bit: "DocEx; wow, what does that mean?" I didn't even know it meant Document Exploitation, which is DocEx. So I called Mr. Kinnally and he said, "Yeah, DocEx; come, we'll talk about it," and I went to meet him. It was about 11:00 o'clock when I finally got to his office because he was out. And he said to me "It's something we're doing with DIA and members of the intelligence community, and a Harmony number or tracking number." Okay. So I went there, not knowing what kind of an off-site it was. And it was basically like a warehouse-type, a basement of the MITRE Building«I mean, what DocEx was, NDPO, National Domestic Preparedness Office, was not really part of the counterterrorism. And I want to say it became defunct, and I don't mean It in a disrespectful manner, but NDPO, as an entity within the FBI was no longer an entity. So they decided to take the same staff, which means the - they called up the administrator, that was Mike Kinnally - Tom Kinnally; I'm sorry. And said - well, there's this DocEx thing, where it's actually a DIA mission where they go and collect documents from Afghanistan in the caves, basically, not knowing what their Intelligence value is. I mean, it could be something; it could be nothing. And we bring that stuff back to the U.S. on C-131¶s and military planes. And so they built this - not built; they established this DocEx thing, document exploitation, looking at documents, seeing if this is worthwhile or not. So I guess from the FBI's perspective, it was a project for helping DIA. I'm not really sure what it was at the time. Bassem¶s deposition focused on Dale Watson: A. Okay. You say that you are listing witnesses who you think might be useful. And one of them is Dale Watson. What you state in here is that he has information related to his own discriminatory conduct and animus. Can you please tell me what you mean by that statement his discriminatory conduct and animus? A. Mr. Watson knew of my work in Riyadh, and he knew that I got the position because of my counterterrorism experience beforehand, which again was exceptional. Often times what I had done in terms of using sophisticated investigative techniques was never done before. Some of
those have been redacted, so I'm not going to mention them. But again, much of it is not classified, so I'm stating for the record again, I don't know why it was redacted. I placed a call to him right after 9/11, I believe on Wednesday. And he wasn't in. I talked to his executive, and I mentioned to her that I am working counterintelligence for the last few months but I've been a counterterrorism man my entire Bureau career and I could certainly come and help in any way that I can. I'm also a polygraph examiner. I can do an exam in Arabic. Not too many people can do that. I can help in any way that I can. I never heard from him. I talked to one unit chief, and one section chief saying that I'm here, willing to help in any way. Nobody came and talked to me. It boggles my mind, until today, that as a counterterrorism asset and I'm not going to say I'm the only one, but I'm going to say singular in nature, and many things that I'd done before. And you hear testimony on the Hill by FBI executives saying, one of the reasons for the Intelligence failures is that we don't have enough people with the cultural background and the counterterrorism expertise and the language. Then there is something wrong here. Either I did something wrong, or I'm being blocked willfully for no good reason other than because I'm of Middle Eastern background. And that would be my reason. If it was somebody other than Dale Watson, I would say maybe they didn't know me. But everybody in the counterterrorism division who actually had any interaction in counterterrorism knew who I was« Q. Why do you think he harbored some ill will toward you? A. Other than I'm of Middle Eastern background, I don't know« Q. Now, I believe you said that you called Congressman Wolf's office and then you later received a phone call from that office setting up an appointment« A. [I] went and told them my story, which is basically that [to] Congressman Wolf and his chief of staff. That was it. It was just in his office. Q. And what happened next? A. Then I get a call saying that we're going to bring in Director Mueller. And I basically saw my career flash before my eyes, just knowing that that is what it's going to. And I - my intention was not to have Director Mueller come. I just wanted to know what would be the best counsel, what should I do in this situation. I have talked to the ombudsman, I have gone to the EEO office. I don't know what else to do. Q. Did you mention the fact that you had not intended to bring Director Mueller, personally involved in this, to Congressman Wolf or to his staff?
A. Yes. And the - I believe both the chief of staff and his staffer - I can't remember the name. Albright Mrs. Albright was the lady. Yeah. Q. Is that the chief of staff or the staffer? A. No, that's the staffer. And she specifically said ³Well, if we do that during the meeting that can have serious repercussions on his career." And Congressman Wolf asked me "How much longer do you have before you retire?" At that time I said either six or seven years; I can't remember. So there was a concern on that. And even though Congressman Wolf agrees that this could be a problem that - he said, "This is too serious; we have got to bring in the director here." Congressman Wolf greeted everybody and basically mentioned to Director Mueller that "I've asked you here because we have - this is Bassem Youssef, one of your agents, and I want him to tell you the story that he told me," and so basically pointed to me and said, "Tell me what - tell Director Mueller. Tell Director Mueller what you told me the last time we met," and so I basically said my story again. Q. And when you say, ³story,´ is that your career you went through what your career was A. Right, what I had done, when I started in the Bureau, what I had worked on, and that since 9/11 have not been doing anything with anything, not just with 9/11, but anything regarding terrorism. Q. And what was - what happened after that? A. And after the director heard my story, he said, "I want to thank you for coming forward with this. I assure you there will be no retaliation against you for saying this. And If you experience any, you come let me know, or let" - I don't remember the exact words. Bassem had a distorted vision of his own worth and despite his braggadocio we carried out numerous operations under his watch. Bassem¶s major case did not amount to a hill of camel dung. On November 8, 1990, Jamal Mohamed Warrayat, a naturalized U.S. citizen originally from Kuwait met with an FBI undercover agent (probably Bassem Yousef) at the Newark International Airport. Warrayat, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Kuwait who lived in Rutherford New Jersey discussed having a stockpile of weapons and explosive materials to be used in planning an attack against military bases in Texas, North Carolina, and Kansas, or attacks against President George Bush, Secretary of State James Baker, and members of Congress. On December 13, 1991, Warrayat pleaded guilty to 1 count of threatening the President. He was sentenced to 12 months of imprisonment and 3 years of supervised release. Andrew A. Apollony, who was assigned to the FBI¶s terrorism squad in Newark stated, ³The Warrayat case
was a major terrorism case in Newark Division, and involved a FISA wiretap, a Title III wiretap, and an undercover operation. The undercover operation insured the success of this case. Plaintiff¶s interpretation of the type of weapon Warrayat declared he would utilize to assassinate President Bush had absolutely no bearing on the outcome or success of the case.´98 Bassem¶s lawsuit stated, ³Youssef played major roles in high profile investigations, including PAKNAP in 1991.´ PAKNAP concerned the September 5, 1986 Pan American Flight Number 73 hijacking in Pakistan, during which Abu Nidel Group executed two American citizens. The Statute of Limitations for obtaining an indictment was about to expire. FBI SA Scott J. Jessee and Bassem flew to Pakistan to review the evidence obtained by the Pakistani Government. By producing documents99 and the testimony of Scott J. Jessee who was in charge of the investigation the US Government attempted to show Bassem was translator, not an investigator and did not debrief, interview or extract confessions of ANG members as he claimed as they had already confessed their involvement in the action in 1986. Bassem Yousef was also involved in ISLAMIC REVENGE in 1992 (the regional security officer at the Israeli Embassy in Ankara was killed by a car bomb on March 7, 1992. The Islamic Revenge Organization claimed responsibility in protest against Israel's February 16, 1992 assassination of Hizb¶allah secretary-general Sheikh Abbas Mousawi in south Lebanon) These documents were generated, Subject: Aviva Fadlon Bronstein, a.k.a.

from January 1996 to December 1999 and from December 1999 to January 2001 swore he had no information ³that the plaintiff was ever an affiant on any FISA declarations or had a role in managing FISAs for the FBI¶s terrorist cases´ while in Los Angeles.102 Youssef claimed he was ³the entire terrorism program´ in Los Angeles at this time. FBI Agent Edward J. Curran backed him up: A. I'm going back ten years. I need help to refresh some of my memory. It was my is understanding, that the Blind Sheikh had already been to Los Angeles on one or several occasions before I got there, and then he was there or he visited there while I was there. And at that time, there was a great deal of interest in him and attention by not just Los Angeles, the headquarters was interested, the FBI, and a lot of groundwork that had been developed and my understanding of our network out there had been developed mainly by Bassem was the one that went out and did that. Q. When you say Mr. Youssef did the groundwork on that, what do you mean by that? A. Basically that cell would have been there and nothing would have happened if nobody was there investigating and identifying the cell members and these activities. As far as I was concerned, Bassem was the only one really doing that. FBI official Carolyn J. Kelliher reported, While I was assigned to the terrorism squad in Los Angeles, I had six to eight Gama¶a al-Islamiyya cases. I never knew plaintiff to be ³Islamic Group Co-ordinator.´ I never co-ordinated my Gama¶a al-Islamiyya cases with him, and he never had any oversight of my Gama¶a al-Islamiyya cases.´ Bassem¶s attorney stated, ³Assume that he was able and had the skills necessary to turn one of the highest placed recruitments in place in a predecessor organization of al-Qaeda. Assume that he was able to develop intelligence to establish numerous FISAs on Middle Eastern terrorist organizations in some way historically related to al-Qaeda or directly related including or not limited to on the blink sheik prior to the first World Trade Center. Bassem: If we're looking about working al-Qaeda, that at that time was not just the Bureau's, but the nation's number one terrorism event that happened against the United Nations against the United States, and al-Qaeda is an offshoot of Gama¶a al-Islamiyya, and Gama¶a al-Islamiyya is an offshoot from the Muslim Brotherhood. And anybody that knows anything about terrorism, and knows anything about those groups, would know that. And here's somebody (Bassem Youssef) who was the coordinator for the
. Bassem v Gonzales Document 109-4 on Pacer
Gama¶a al-Islamiyya program in Los Angeles, not just working the cases of the other agents, coordinating the cases of the other agents in the division, but in other divisions. And being solicited in terms of input an how to help with this FISA, or we need to vet this source, what do you think we should do? How do we proceed with this investigation? When we actually arrested when we were planning on arresting Omar Rahman right after the World Trade Center bombing, which was in April sometime. The bombing happened the first time in 1993, February 26th, 1993. In April is when the plan was to arrest him. We didn't arrest him until later sometime in August, I believe, the same year. I was in Newark working on something else, and I got a call from switchboard saying, the assistant director for national security because that was the overall, the assistant director over national security was also responsible for counterterrorism. At that time it was Neal Gallagher who was trying to reach out for me in LA, couldn't find me. They said he's in Newark. Called me in Newark. He said, I need to get with you on a secure line. TelI me what you think we should do. Should we arrest the Blind Sheikh or not? And what are the ramifications, what are the repercussions? I am being my opinion is being solicited on things that are major here, not just In terms of my cases In Los Angeles. And this was the pattern all along. And then all of a sudden I'm being snubbed completely. And now when Dale Watson is in that position, it's against me. And I don't know for any other reason. Because my record reflects that I had done unbelievable work in counterterrorism with great success. Not just, I've worked on some cases. But my results were singular in nature. And not to be called in, after I even went so far as to call, which I don't think I should be calling, he should know, not he specifically, Dale Watson, but anybody In that position would know, we need to bring in all our resources, and especially resources that are not that common. Bassem¶s complaint continued, ³KOHBOMB, KENBOM, HIZBALLAH, TRADEBOM, Blind Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman investigation, International Radical Fundamentalist Matters and Usama bin Laden. Youssef served as a coordinator, supervisor and/or Case Agent on these matters«In 1993, Youssef was commended, in writing, by the responsible U.S. Ambassador for his participation in a sensitive International Terrorism investigation in which Youssef demonstrated his professionalism and his ability to use his Arabic language ability during a meeting with Egypt¶s Minister of Interior and Director of Egyptian State Security. This meeting Resulted in SA Youssef brokering better relations between the FBI and the Egyptian police who were previously suspect regarding the FBI¶s sincerity in investigating´ Egyptian terrorists domiciled in the United States«In 1995, Youssef received the Director of Central Intelligence Award. This is one of the most coveted awards in the Counterintelligence / Counterterrorism arena. In February 1997, Bassem Youssef was promoted to the position of Legal Attaché in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. This position has responsibility for FBI activities in the following countries:
Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates and Yemen. This promotion was based, in part, on the exceptional liaison Mr. Youssef affected with high-ranking Middle Eastern law enforcement officials during the initial phase of a major counterterrorism investigation [the Khobar bombing where Yousef convinced the Saudis to allow the FBI to interview the jihadi who had been apprehended after the event]. Bassem Yousef believed that some FBI agents regarded Arabs as ragheads, camel humpers and sand-niggers. He also believed that there was insensitivity to Islam on higher levels, ³For example, Dale Watson, the former FBI Assistant Director for Counterterrorism visited Saudi Arabia and engaged in conduct openly antagonistic to our Arab hosts and allies. On one occasion, in a highly sensitive meeting discussing a highly sensitive initiative between the FBI and the Mabahith, Bassem Youssef briefed Dale Watson prior to the meeting that the Saudi officials had already agreed to provide the information the FBI had requested. Instead of thanking the Saudi officials (which included the Director of the Mabahith) Dale Watson opened the meeting with insulting and antagonistic statements that demonstrated his deeply felt hostility toward Arabs. His comments were so shocking that another American FBI official in the room asked Youssef, when translating the Dale Watson¶s comments into Arabic, to tone down the gist of his remarks. Youssef informed this FBI official that the Director of the Mabahith understood English. Dale Watson was also was found by the Mabahith to have illegally smuggled liquor103 into Saudi Arabia. This not only violated Saudi law and undermined the law enforcement mission of the FBI, but it also further demonstrated hostility to Arab culture. Based on Mr. Bassem Youssef¶s expertise in these areas, he was able to perform effective damage control regarding these (and other) matters.´ Prior to 9/11 the FBI failed to properly follow-up on two leads into alleged Usama bin Laden activities due to discriminatory treatment of Bassem Youssef. On one such lead, Youssef obtained information regarding a potentially valuable source in Yemen who claimed to have information regarding the East Africa Embassy bombings. [Abd al Rahim al-Nashiri a, cousin of Azzam, had obtained a Yemeni passport for a member of the East African Embassy Event crew]. Bassem Youssef debriefed the source and concluded that he needed access to an Agent more directly familiar with the facts of those bombings. Bassem Youssef¶s request that an agent familiar with the bombing investigation be assigned was denied, because the FBI was not willing to authorize an agent to travel into Yemen, which was considered a high-risk area. However, the FBI did authorize Bassem Youssef (an Arab) to travel to Yemen. Upon information and belief, there were no FBI agents of Arabic national origin working the East African onscene investigation. There was no legitimate business justification for permitting Bassem Youssef (an American citizen and an FBI agent) to
. After leaving the FBI Watson joined the anti-Islamist consulting firm of Booz, Allen, Hamilton. This company received a government contract to create a searchable ³terrorist´ database containing hundreds of petabits of information on the lives of Islamists and their support network called The Total Information Awareness Support database. After complaints from ³civil liberties´ types such as CAIR, the U.S. Government de-privatized this data mining operation. This type of tracking has made it difficult for Brothers to function in the West but not in countries such as Afghanistan where the literacy rate is 20%.
travel to Yemen, while refusing to authorize another agent to travel to that country. Because of this discriminatory action, the source was never properly debriefed and the value of the information was never adequately determined. Two months before 9/11, a walk-in entered one of the FBI Field offices alleging to have significant information regarding Usama bin Laden. The Field Office requested that Youssef debrief the walk-in. This was based on Youssef¶s strong reputation in these matters and fluency in Arabic. When the Field Office advised the Counterterrorism Section that Youssef would be debriefing the walk-in, the Usama Bin Laden Unit instructed the Field Office not to utilize Mr. Youssef¶s his services. The failure to utilize Mr. Youssef¶s services in this matter was discriminatory and humiliating to Youssef. It also was pretextual and could not be justified under any circumstances given the national security needs of the United States. The pretextual nature of this incident is magnified by the fact that the Usama Bin Laden Unit did not have a substitute Agent qualified or capable of conducting that debriefing. Consequently, the walk-in stopped cooperating with the FBI and walked out of the Field Office. Whatever information this walk-in had, was lost.104 FBI SAC Pasquale D¶Amuro defended the usefulness of DocEx. Whereas the Counter Terrorism Division did not engage in systematic document exploitation prior to 9/11, after 9/11 the FBI recognized that there was a vital need for the CTD to analyze data obtained from overseas. Because its mission involved identifying and analyzing information seized in Afghanistan, and determining whether it related to the threat of terrorist attacks against the United States, the DocEx project was considered a critical part of the 9/11 Investigation. Therefore, even though the memorandum stated that plaintiff was being transferred from the Counterintelligence Division to ITOS within CTD, the FBI managers responsible for effectuating the transfer never intended that plaintiff would be assigned to ITOS. Rather, the FBI intended that plaintiff would continue to perform the duties he had been performing since being assigned to DocEx in March 2002. Agent Kinnally agreed, The documents seized contained highly valuable intelligence information and, as a result, weekly reports were sent to the Director based on intelligence gleaned by DocEx.´ The Government summed up its case, ³Without any evidence, plaintiff¶s claim is reduced to nothing more than the

idiosyncratic expression of his personal belief that his career situation would have somehow been improved if he had been assigned to and working in ITOS rather than DocEx. If plaintiff truly believed that being in DocEx ³mired´ him in ³professional purgatory,´ and that working in ITOS would have enhanced his career, it would appear to have been in his best interests to apply for the 28 positions advertised in ITOS during the period from January 2002 to November 2005. JOHN DOE ANTI-TERRORISM OFFICER vs. BRUCE TEFFT A 48-year-old Egyptian-born captain with the New York City Department of Correction assigned to work with the Police Department's Intelligence Division since 1998 who formed the Cyber Unit there in 2002 got fed up with his associate, Bruce Tefft. Bruce Tefft was a founding member of the CIA's Counter Terrorism Center in 1985. Dr. Tefft has been certified as an expert witness on terrorism issues for the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. and has testified in 8 cases. Since 9/11 he has served as the New York Police Department's Counter-Terrorism and Intelligence advisor. Dr. Tefft runs an international open source (OSINT) collection network which reviews more than 1,000 articles and messages per day from law enforcement, intelligence, military, academic and media sources and disseminates approximately 10% of these to 4,000 clients with appropriate commentary. Between 2002 and December 2005, Tefft sent the Muslim traitor hundreds of anti-Muslim and anti-Arab email briefings. Tefft sent emails stating: What happens when a Muslim must choose between the Qur¶an (God's word) and loyalty to America? If he's a good Muslim he can't be a good American...Without Islam, there wouldn't be any Islamic Terror...Radical Islam? There is no such thing ... Just Islam...Of course poverty is not the cause of terrorism ... the cause of Islamic terrorism is Islam...This is not a war against terrorism... it is against Islam and we are not winning...Someone would have to be blind, stupid, or ignorant to think Islam is a religion (as opposed to a fascist political ideology)...Muslims in sensitive positions«some people are too dumb to learn...Once people reject the death cult of the Qur¶an, that will be the end of Islam...Islam claims the respect or disrespect it has. What is respectable about Islam?...We will lose this war if we help the Muslims against ourselves!... [N]o evidence at all is offered that Islam is either a religion (as opposed to being a fascist political ideology) nor that it merits, as a death cult, any respect whatsoever...Like anything, the Qur¶an will be accorded the respect it merits. Which is zip...Burning the hate-filled Qur¶an should be viewed as a public service at the least. Tefft forwarded the Arab turncoat these articles, "El Baradei Confirmed Seeking Third Term at IAEA," and he commented that it was the: height of foolishness to have a Muslim monitoring Islamic nuclear weapons developments." An article entitled, "Al-
Qaeda wants to repeat 9/11 in Israel," and he commented: "Makes one wonder how many Muslim pilots the US National Guard, Reserves, and/or US Air Force have flying aircraft around US Cities." An article entitled Is the Arabic language 'perfect' or 'backwards'?" and stated, "The language may not be backwards but the people speaking it are." An article entitled "Text pulled after uproar over Islam," and he commented: "Good, it's a start. Islam must be deleglitimized as a 'religion' and taught for what it is: a political ideology with religious trappings." An article entitled, "Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19" and 20" Centuries," and he commented: "They left out the Koran."105 This lawsuit gives you some idea of the way the intelligence community¶s counter-terrorist specialists think. These lawsuits are just the beginning. We will use the anti-discrimination laws to force the FBI to hire and promote many Muslims. And with the help of Allah, one of these Muslims will be an al-Qaeda mole. SAUDI LAWSUITS AND COUNTERSUITS The families of the kuffar killed in the Trade Center Attack filed a more than $1 trillion lawsuit against a long list of Middle Eastern governments, Saudi princes, Saudi banks, and charities that they will squeeze not a penny out of. The suit alleges Saudi officials agreed in 1998 with Usama bin Laden to avoid seeking extradition of al-Qaeda officials or closure of training camps in exchange for bin Laden¶s promise not to undermine the Saudi government. This is why for many years al-Qaeda has heeded the words of Usama bin Laden and not attacked the royal family: ³Moreover it is important not to get distracted by (fights with) their tails and agents (i.e. Arab regimes) that is exactly what the enemies of Jihad desire in order to disperse our efforts. Our goal is clear and our guidelines of our policy are well known for we don¶t adopt any action that doesn¶t contribute in the right direction against the Crusader Jewish Alliance.´ The suit also claimed a brother of King Fahd has donated millions to charities linked to alQaeda.106 The Saudis have filed numerous lawsuits in claimant friendly London, including a counter suit against the survivors of Holy Tuesday, and the publications that printed the names contained in the Golden Chain Al-Qaeda Contributor List. The newspapers being sued are the Wall Street Journal Europe, the Sunday Times and the Mail on Sunday.107 Khalid bin Mahfouz is leading the charge and filed a libel suit against the lead investigator for the families of the September 11th civilian casualties, Jean-Charles Brisard, a French business analyst and author of a book entitled Forbidden Truth that cited congressional testimony by

former CIA Director R. James Woolsey in 1998, that Khalid bin Mahfouz¶s close ties to bin Laden were epitomized by his sister¶s marriage to him.108 In a recent interview, Woolsey said his testimony referred to a ³Mr. Hafous,´ not Mahfouz. ³I don¶t know what to say other than that there was some confusion, but I never meant to refer to Khalid bin Mahfouz¶s sister.´109 This Woolsey is a fool. The connection between the bin Laden family and the bin Mahfouz¶s can be found through an examination of the owners of Hybridon Incorporated, not in marriage records. Yahia M.A. Bin Laden was a shareholder as was Abdulrahman Bin Mahfouz as of April 2001.110 Their names failed to appear on Hybridon¶s latest SEC statement.111 The Carter Ruck law firm that is handling the Mahfouz lawsuit has also filed a lawsuit on behalf of Yassin al-Kadi against a small African Newsletter that reported he was a Special Designated Global Terrorist. On August 9, 2004 the UK High Court awarded Sheikh Khaled Bin Mahfouz £10,000 damages in the Brisard defamation case. The defendants were also ordered to pay interim costs of £30,000. TERRORISM OR MAHFOUZENCE? During litigation that followed the 1991 collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) Saudi Sheik Khalid bin Mahfouz, a former lead financial advisor to the Saudi royal family, was implicated in the BCCI money-laundering scandal and eventually paid $225 million to escape possible U.S. charges.112 Sheik Mahfouz¶s BCCI branches in Pakistan had been used by the ISI to funnel money to the jihadi in Afghanistan and had been used to assist Pakistan in its efforts to obtain triggers for nuclear weapons.113 General Kamal Adham, the former head of the Saudi intelligence agency was involved with BCCI. Plato Chaceris, who represented CIA Agent Aldrich Ames, FBI Agent Robert Hanssen and DIA Agent Ana Belen Montes, all members of the American intelligence community, represented General Kamal Adham.114 In 1999 the Saudis pretended that Khalid bin Mahfouz was placed under house arrest after suddenly discovering that the bank he once controlled, the National Commercial Bank of Saudi Arabia, had funneled millions to the Al Muwafaq Blessed Relief Foundation. The members of the governing Council and the trustees of the assets of Al Muwafaq Foundation in Jersey, Channel Islands as of 1995 were Yassin al-Kadi, Talal Badkook, Rayeis Bin Mahfooz, and Abdurahman Bin Mahfooz, the sons of Sheik Khalid bin Mahfouz.115 The British press reported that the Saudi government has now confined bin Mahfouz in a hospital in the mountain resort of Taif, but this is more nonsense to placate the Americans.

CHERIF SEDKY Khalid bin Mahfouz¶s chief legal advisor, Cherif Sedky, an American lawyer who resides in Saudi Arabia, said Mahfouz¶s has no sister married to Bin Laden. Sedky is an American citizen and graduate of Stanford University and Georgetown Law School. In 1983 Sedky was on the side of the Sunnis when a group of Shiite¶s attempted to take over the Islamic Center Mosque, in Washington, D.C.116 Sedky was a senior partner at the Kirkpatrick and Lockhart law firm before joining the bin Mahfouz family as their chief legal adviser in 1994. Abdulrahman bin Mahfouz and Sultan bin Mahfouz, (another of Khalid bin Mahfouz¶s sons), along with Sedky, are Directors of the Nimir Group Limited.117 Charity tax records list Dr. Cherif Sedky as a trustee and the secretary of the SAAR Foundation of Herndon, Virginia,118 once owned by the family of Sulaiman Abdul Aziz al-Rajhi but dissolved in December 2000. The name and Jeddah address of Salah Al-Rajhi, Sulaiman¶s brother, appeared in the telephone book of Wadih el-Hage.119 The United States government has alleged Abdurahman Alamoudi received a large amount of money from his brothers in Saudi Arabia via the Rajhi Banking and Investment Corporation.120 Abdurahman Alamoudi maintains a residence in Saudi Arabia and requested that Prince Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Saoud (also spelled Saud), Crown Prince and Deputy Prime Minister, give his Brothers Saudi citizenship.121 The SAAR Foundation was a top priority for Operation Green Quest. According to the search warrants, officials wished to legally steal, ³Any and all information referencing in any way Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Al-Qaeda, Usama bin Laden, and any other individual or entity designated as terrorist by the President of the United States, the United States Treasury, or the Secretary of State [is financed].´122 The U.S. government viewed SAAR as a key link in a Saudi-sponsored network of our financing. SAAR received $1.7 billion in donations in 1998. SAAR is suspected of laundering money for Al-Qaeda, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and is connected to Al Taqwa.

Assistant to the President of the SAAR Foundation.123 The United States government has alleged the Abdurahman Alamoudi received a large amount of money from Mahfouz¶s National Commercial Bank of Jeddah.124 Bin Laden¶s satellite phone provider Tarik Hamdi was an employee of the Saudi Arabian International Institute for Islamic Thought that was raided by the FBI as part of the SAAR nexus. The Republican National Committee claimed SAAR is also linked to Khalid bin Mahfouz and that Mahfouz is known by French intelligence as a backer of Usama bin Laden as he endowed the Muwafaq Foundation.125 The namesakes of the SAAR Foundation - the Al Rajhi Banking Investment Corporation, has filed suit in London against the Wall Street Journal that reported that the Rajhi family appeared on the Golden Chain list of Global Jihadi financial backers. THE CIRCLE GAME In an affidavit126 to show probable cause for the issuance of a search warrant Cherif Sedky is listed as a director of numerous Safa Group (the successor to SAAR) companies127 including the Humana Charitable Trust. From 1997 through 2000, SAAR contributed the majority of its assets ($21.1 million) to Humana Charitable Trust but did not disclose the relationship between the SAAR and Humana. The American Muslim Association of North America Limited set up Humana on November 12, 1997. Sedky was a director of the American Muslim Association of North America. The Mahfouz family was questioned about these all of these allegations: Q. Is there a connection between Hybridon Inc. and the Khalid Bin Mahfouz family? A. At one time, Khalid Bin Mahfouz's elder son, Abdulrahman Bin Mahfouz, was an investor in the company. He sold his shareholding in 1997. Q. Is there a connection between the SAAR Foundation and the Khalid Bin Mahfouz family? A. The Khalid Bin Mahfouz family has never had anything to do with SAAR and has never made any contribution to that foundation. Q. Is any member of the Khalid Bin Mahfouz family on any U.S. government list? Is Khalid Bin Mahfouz being accused of any wrongdoing by the U.S. Government? Is any U.S. government agency investigating the Khalid Bin Mahfouz family?

A. Not to the best of our knowledge. Q. Has the family been asked by any U.S. Government agency to discuss the Muwafaq Foundation or any other charitable activities? A. No. Q. What is the connection between Khalid Bin Mahfouz and the Blessed Relief charity? A. The Blessed Relief charity or Muwafaq Foundation was established to relieve disease, hunger and ignorance and for other humanitarian purposes. Khalid Bin Mahfouz was the principal donor to the foundation at its inception in 1991 but was not involved in the running of the charity. The Foundation was wound up between 1996 and 1998. Q. How does the family respond to the United States Treasury Department's labeling of the Muwafaq Foundation as an Al-Qaeda front? A. The label is demonstrably false. Furthermore, in undertaking many of its activities, the charity worked with UNICEF, the World Food Program, Save the Children and several other humanitarian organizations. Q. What role did Abdulrahman Bin Mahfouz play in the Muwafaq Foundation? A. Abdulrahman Bin Mahfouz was named as one of six directors of the Foundation but had no involvement in the management or review of its activities. Q. Why has the family hired a law firm to investigate the Foundation? A. The Bin Mahfouz family believes that reviewing the books and records of a charity that they supported is the right thing to do, when serious allegations of illicit activities have been made. A highly reputable American law firm has been retained to assist them in this effort; any responsible charity would do the same thing.
THE SAUDI LOBBY AND THE ARABISTS MIDDLE EAST POLICY COUNCIL¶S FAVORITE JEWS
For many years a faction of the American State Department was of the opinion that America¶s interest lay with the oil-rich Arab nations and not with Israel. It was only natural for the Wahabists to wish to encourage and subsidize this tendency. One such Arabist institution is the Middle East Policy Council. None of the Directors of the Middle East Policy Council are Jews except for Yankel Ginzburg, an artist who has done work for the holocaust museum, who serves as their token Jew, least they be accused of being against Jews rather than against the Zionist entity. The conservatives at the Middle East Policy Council publish the work of many Jews who support what they believe will be peace in Arabia, the ³Peace Now´ leftist degenerates, who, having strayed from their so-called religion, have replaced it with godless communism. The Middle East Policy Council publishes the work of Israel Shahak, who died on July 2, 2001, an originator of the ³Peace Now´ school of thought. Shahak was a survivor of the Warsaw ghetto and the Bergen Belsen extermination facility. The Nazis must have foreseen even back then that Shahak would be a greater threat to the Jewish people alive than dead! Shahak emigrated to the Zionist entity and became a professor of chemistry at Hebrew University in Occupied Jerusalem. Shahak had this to say in the Middle East Policy Council journal, Middle East Policy: ³I am a pupil of a great man called Professor Yeshayahu Liebovitz. He predicted that because of the conquests and the desire for domination, more and more Jews will become soldiers and then more and more of the soldiers will become operatives of the secret police, and at the end of this process is a society in which the Jews will only be conquerors, secret agents and soldiers. Slaves will do the rest [of the work]. The immediate analogy, which a lot of people are making in Israel, is Germany. Not only the Germany of Hitler and the Nazis, but even the former German Empire that wanted to dominate all of Europe.´128 Professor Shahak was a deranged Jew.129 If he thought the Zionist entity was illegitimate, what was he doing there? Why didn¶t he go back to Poland instead of being a colonizer? Nazis quote his works, such as Mathew Hale head of the Christian Identity Church of the Creator130 and Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.131 When Shahak died Nazi Ernst Zundel132 wrote this about him: ³Israel Shahak was quietly heroic. Decent

David Duke plead guilty to stealing contributions made to him by enemies of the Zionist Occupation Government and was sent to Federal prison and Hale was convicted of threatening a federal judge who Hale described as a white woman married to a Jew with three mixed-race grandchildren (this was false). Thanks to the Jews, Matt Hale will never see the outside again but Duke is still free. 132. Zundel, who sent the Elders of Islam a pamphlet warning them that the American Jews were trying to incite a war against the people of the last Prophet, is an effective holocaust-denial propagandist. Zundel was convicted on February 26, 1985, of publishing false news about the holocaust. He was sentenced to fifteen months in jail, and three years probation, during which time he was prohibited from publishing on the subject. He appealed the conviction and was given a new trial. Zundel¶s defense witnesses included David Irving and Robert Faurisson. In early 2000, David Irving sued Penguin Books and Jewess Deborah Lipstadt, whose book Denying The Holocaust Irving claimed was central to allegations that he was a neo-Nazi and involved with extremist fascist groups. On April 11, 2000, the British High Court announced its verdict: Lipstadt did not libel Irving when she described him as ³one of the most dangerous spokespersons for holocaust denial.´ Irving was forced to pay the costs of the trial (estimated to be £2 million pounds), which will effectively bankrupt him.´ Notwithstanding the sympathetic testimony of these men, on November 13, 1988, Zundel was convicted and sentenced to a nine-month jail term. Deportation hearings were commenced by the Canadian authorities but fortunately on August 27, 1992, the Supreme Court of Canada struck down as unconstitutional the law banning the spread of false news. The Canadian Jews pressured the government not grant him citizenship and in February 2001, Zundel left Canada for
people owe him a debt of gratitude. He was a voice of reason and decency in a country where the people of the lie live and hold sway - and, sadly, also govern. We will sorely miss him and his honesty.´ Alexander Cockburn,133 Christopher Hitchens134 and Noam Chomsky135 joined Zundel in eulogizing Shahak, who had uncovered or invented customs and Talmudic passages that would incite the Christians against not only the Zionist entity but also against Jews in general. Shahak wrote that dishonoring Christian religious symbols was an old religious duty in Judaism: ³Spitting on the cross, and especially on the Crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church, has been obligatory from around AD 200 for pious Jews.´ The Institute for Historical Review reprinted this passage136 and Amhed Mousawe, a leading intellectual of the Hizb¶allah asserted that Jews ceremonially spit on the cross. Asked whether Islam was similar to Judaism, Amhed Mousawe responded, ³Ah, but we respect Jesus Christ (peace and the blessings of God be upon him). The Jews have the practice of spitting on the cross.´137 Shahak wrote, ³Both before and after a meal a pious Jew ritually washes his hands«On one of these two occasions he is worshipping God«but on the other he is worshipping Satan.´138 THE MIDDLE EAST POLICY COUNCIL MEMBERS Men like Frank C. Carlucci, the former United States Secretary of Defense, and a Director of the Middle East Policy Council sponsored Shahak.139 Carlucci is also chairman of the Carlyle Group, a Washington-based investment firm that buyouts defense companies and negotiates global arms deals for Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states. Carlyle¶s senior counsel is former secretary of state James Baker, and George Bush the Elder is paid to consult on its behalf. Carlyle and Bush profit from $4 billion a year that the Saudis spend on U.S.-manufactured defense systems.140 Carlyle is the developer of the $11.2 billion mobile Howitzer mobile artillery system named aptly enough, the Crusader.

Programs, Boeing Corporation is a Director, as is Curtis Brand, the retired Chairman of the Exxon Mobil Oil Company in Saudi Arabia. So, numerous members of the American Defense, Foreign Policy and military complex, whose loyalty to American security is unquestionable, direct the Middle East Policy Council. Dr. Fuad A. Rihani, Director, Research and Development of the Saudi Bin Laden Group, is also a Director of the Middle East Policy Council. The Middle East Policy Council¶s total revenue for 2001 was $1,132,357, with some contributors [whose names have been redacted] donating as much as $400,000. This may seem like a lot of money but pales in comparison with Anti-Defamation League that received $46 million dollars in contributions that same year! Talat M. Othman is also on the Board of Directors of the Middle East Policy Council. From 1985 to 1986 Othman was president of the Arab Banking Association (ABANA), whose institutional members include the Islamic Development Bank, Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, and the Carlyle Group.142 The Middle East Policy Council is headed by Ambassador Chas. W. Freeman, Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs from 1993 to 1994, and U. S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia during the American attacks on Iraq termed Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Freeman is Chairman of the Board of Projects International, a Washington-based business development firm with extensive dealings with Saudi Arabia.143 The Directors of Projects International include four attorneys who were in the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, which represented the largest Islamic charity in the United States, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development.
THE OCCUPIED LAND FUND v. THE BOIMS The Holy Land Foundation is a non-profit corporation organized in 1989. It was originally incorporated under the name Occupied Land Fund, and changed its corporate name to Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development on September 16, 1991. It took America ten years to come to the conclusion that the Foundation was an unseen hand of Hamas. Holy Land¶s assets were frozen by the devils of the Treasury Department as investigators probed its ties to heroes of Hamas. In September 2001, a federal grand jury issued subpoenas for Holy Land records144 around the same time anti-Muslim bigots froze the assets of a North Texas Internet firm hired by Holy Land,
. Othman was a co-defendant in North South Finance v. Al Turki North South Finance v. Al-Turki with Abdullah Taha Bakhsh. The name Al-Sharbatly appeared on the Gold Chain List. This apparently referred to Abdulrahman Hassan [Abbas] Sharbatly who is a Board member of the Beirut Riyad Bank SAL (with Prince Khaled bin Turki and Abdullah Taha Bakhsh) and a shareholder in the Middle East Capital Group along with Abdullah Taha Bakhsh and Henry Sarkissian who is President of the Saudi Bin Laden Group International. Abdullah Taha Bakhsh shared many common interests with the Mahfouz family and was implicated in the BCCI misunderstanding.

the InfoCom Corporation, which was raided by police on September 5, 2001 for attempting to ship computer equipment to Libya and Syria.145 In October 2006, Ghassan Elashi, a founder and former chairman of the HLF, was sentenced to more than six years in prison after he and four brothers were convicted of violating export laws by shipping computers to Syria and Libya. Last year, Mr. Elashi and two brothers were convicted of helping a Hamas leader launder money.146 Akin Gump, represented the Holy Land Foundation in a federal lawsuit filed against the charity, and another suspected Hamas fund-raising group, by Stanley and Joyce Boim, whose son David, an Israeli soldier, was executed by Hamas in 1996.147 The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit has upheld a lower court ruling that a trial should be held in this matter. It ruled that donations used to further Jihad were covered under the so-called anti-terrorism law as long as it could be shown that the charities knew of Hamas¶s activities. Suing such a charity does not violate the American Constitution¶s First Amendment speech protections ³so long as the plaintiffs are able to prove that the defendants knew about the organization¶s illegal activity, desired to help that activity succeed and engaged in some act of helping´148 wrote Judge Ilana D. Rovner. Judge Rovner, who, as a child, fled Riga, Latvia, to escape the growing Nazi threat, should have recused herself from this case, as she is Zionist and a Jew! Akin, Gump said it decided to decline a request to represent the Holy Land Foundation in its defense of terrorism-related charges made by the U.S. Treasury Department. Akin Gump did not need the money since the Saudi government hired them, paying out $161,799 in the first half of 2002.149 John D. Cline of Freedman, Boyd, Daniels, Hollander, Goldberg & Cline now represents the Holy Land Foundation. The former Williams & Connolly150 partner defended Oliver North and Los Alamos scientist Wen Ho Lee. At first, U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler, another Jew who is handling this case, warned government lawyers that she would not look favorably on their request to keep classified information concealed from public view: ³I¶ll make no secret that the government is going to have a very heavy burden to submit information ex parte [in secret, in the judge¶s chambers],´ Kessler said. ³In a case with as many serious ramifications as this one, unless the law is crystal clear everything should be in public and on the record.´ This was all talk. After reviewing the FBI report on the Holy Land Foundation Judge Kessler refused Holy Land¶s request for a temporary injunction to unblock its assets. She also dismissed most of the claims in its lawsuit against the American Government. This Jewish judge relied on information from the Israelis:

William¶s clients included Armand Hammer, Marvin Mandel, John Connally, and Robert Strauss of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld.
First, it was reasonable for Office of Foreign Assets Control to rely on information derived from Israeli police interrogations, despite Holy Land¶s contention about the prevalence of torture by the Israeli police«In 1997, the Israeli government arrested Mohammad Anati, the former head of Holy Land Foundation¶s Jerusalem office, because of his Hamas activities. The administrative record contains an Israeli intelligence report summarizing Anati¶s police interrogations subsequent to his arrest. The report indicates that Anati admitted to being a Hamas activist, and stated that, although Holy Land Foundation provided aid to the needy, some of that money was channeled to Hamas. When a Brother is tortured he will often times tell his torturer what he wants to hear, rather than what is true. Coerced confessions are not admissible in American courts. Judge Kessler continued: There is evidence in the record that Holy Land Foundation¶s Jerusalem office supported Hamas. The Israeli government closed the office in May 1995, because it was µused for overseeing the channeling of funds to families of Hamas activists who had committed terrorist attacks and for families of Hamas prisoners.¶ The Israeli Supreme Court later upheld the closing«The September 20, 1995 report prepared by the Israeli government is based on that government¶s analysis of documents it recovered from Holy Land Foundation¶s Jerusalem office. The recovered documents show funds transferred from the Holy Land Foundation to the Islamic Relief Agency for distribution, and include the list of people supported by those funds. The report indicates that people who were not demonstrably connected to Hamas activists received lower payments when compared to those with known Hamas ties. Finally, the Israeli government¶s June 5, 1995 report indicates that µsome hundred orphans receiving support have been checked¶ and the µfamilies of several orphans are directly connected with Hamas.¶ The Israeli military raided the office without having probable cause or a search warrant. The Israeli Supreme Court later upheld the closing, when it was a fait accompli. The fruits of a search of this nature would be inadmissible in a U.S. federal court. Judge Kessler also relied on the statements of unnamed informants and she ruled: ³The Holy Land Foundation contests the Office of Foreign Assets Control¶s reliance on these statements because the Government did not provide any basis to believe they are reliable, did not describe the basis for the informants¶ knowledge, and did not include any versions of their statements in the unclassified administrative record. However, courts have recognized the usefulness of information from confidential sources when presented in combination with corroborating
evidence151 (finding that magistrate judge properly concluded that informants¶ credibility was sufficiently established because informants¶ statements were corroborated and they had provided reliable information in the past). Here, there are eight corroborating and independent sources, in addition to the corroborating evidence detailed above. Further, the FBI indicated that the sources had been reliable in the past (admitting that one source had been both reliable and unreliable), and provision of such information supports the Office of Foreign Assets Control¶s consideration of their statements.152 In August 2004 a 42-count indictment unsealed in Dallas alleged the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development used its tax-exempt status to fund Hamas, a legitimate charity that serves the Ummah. NATHAN LEWIN: THANK ALLAH THERE ARE FEW JEWS LIKE HIM Judaist Nathan Lewin handled the initial part of this case for the Boims. Who are the other members of Lewin¶s law firm? Lawyers who were close to former United States President Richard Nixon, such as Herbert J. Miller Jr. Miller worked with the Warren Commission that covered up the Mafia connections of the Jew Jack ³Ruby´ Rubenstein and then Miller defended Nixon during the Watergate scandal. R. Stan Mortonson and Martin D. Minsker are members of this law firm. These lawyers now represent the Nixon library and Nixon estate. Ironically, Jews that Nixon complained about having an inordinate amount of influence, now manage his estate! NIXON HATED THE JEWS Nixon¶s true thoughts about Jews were revealed when the Oval Office tapes became public: On February 1, 1972 Nixon met with the Christian missionary Billy Graham and H.R. Haldeman, Nixon¶s aide. The Christian missionary had been invited to lunch at Time magazine. ³You better take your Jewish beanie!´ Haldeman said. Nixon took the Christian missionary aside and said he had something to tell him that ³we can¶t talk about publicly´ - Jewish influence in the media. All the big news organs are ³totally dominated by the Jews.´ Graham agreed, adding that it is the Jews ³who are putting out the pornographic stuff.´ ³This stranglehold has got to be broken or this country¶s going down the drain,´ Graham declared. ³You believe that?´ Nixon asked. ³Yes, sir,´ Graham replied. ³Oh, boy,´ replies Nixon. ³So do I. I can¶t ever say that but I believe it.´ Nixon complained that Washington ³is full of Jews´ and that ³most Jews are disloyal. Generally speaking you can¶t trust the bastards. They turn on you. Am I wrong or right?´ Haldeman agreed. Nixon told Haldeman that the Jews needed to be brought under control by putting someone ³in charge who is not Jewish´ in key agencies. Nixon said sarcastically: ³without getting into any anti-Semitism,´ then described the inordinate influence of ³a terrible liberal Jewish clique.´ Former Treasury Secretary John Connally

said there were too many Jews in government. ³Oh! Oh, God! It erodes our confidence, our strength. They¶re untrustworthy. Look at the Justice Department, it¶s full of Jews´ said Nixon. ³Any place of power,´ Connally agreed: ³Security and Exchance Commission used to be -- all of them, those lawyers.´ ³Listen, the lawyers in government are damn Jews,´ Nixon said. Both agreed Nixon should reduce the Jewish influence in a second term. Nixon told Connally he wanted no more than 2% of the government¶s political appointees to be Jewish, in proportion to the population. He later said 10% would be acceptable, ³but certainly not 30% or 40%.´ JESUS FOR JEWS Billy Graham¶s son is nothing like him: After calling Islam ³a very evil and wicked religion,´ the evangelist Franklin Graham said that Muslims had not sufficiently apologized for the September 11th Raids and that al-Qaeda should help compensate civilian casualties¶ families.153 Franklin Graham¶s relief operation, Samaritan¶s Purse, began to operate in Iraq shortly after the Americans occupied it. The bigoted Reverend Jerry Falwell said, ³I think Muhammad was a terrorist.´ After his remarks set off HinduMuslim clashes in India that left at least nine people dead he apologized for this remark. Speaking on his Christian Broadcasting Network news program the Evangelist Pat Robertson accused Jews of being blind to the threat posed by Muslims: If I say something that Islam is an erroneous religion, the Anti-Defamation League criticizes me. When are you guys going to open your eyes and see whom your enemy is? Those people want to destroy Jews. Somehow I wish the Jews in America would wake up, open their eyes and read what is being said about them. This is worse than the Nazis. Adolf Hitler was bad, but what the Muslims want to do to the Jews is worse.154 It certainly sounds like Pat Robertson has the interests of Israel and the Jews at heart with one catch: Fundamental evangelicals, who interpret the Bible literally, believe that the Jews return to Israel and the restoration of the temple will precede the Second Coming of Christ, at which point 144,000 Jews will be saved after the rapture. These Jews from the 12 tribes will accept Jesus as the Messiah and enter into the Millennium to repopulate the earth. The 12 apostles will rule over these 12 tribes during this time. Jesus, speaking to His disciples, said to them, ³Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration [the Millennium] when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.´155 There are 13 million Jews in the world today. The Evangelical Christians are even more ambitious than Islamists are in their desire to see the Jews disappear from the face of the earth. JUDAISTS HATE AFRO-AMERICANS

The Jews wonder why American blacks, many of who have converted to Islam, hate them in greater proportion to whites? Courtney A. Evans is a member of Lewin¶s Jewish special interest law firm. When United States Attorney General Robert Kennedy authorized Electronic Surveillance against Martin Luther King Jr. on October 10, 1963 the document was provided by FBI liaison Courtney A. Evans. The attorney general¶s main concern, detailed in the minutes of his meeting with Evans, seems to have been not that the bugging and tapping of King was wrong but that it might be found out. Once Evans convinced him that this was genuinely improbable, ³the Attorney General said he felt [the FBI] should go ahead with the technical coverage of King on a trial basis, and to continue if productive results were forthcoming.´156 The Boims cannot bring their Zionist thug son back ± they only wish to get rich from his death by using America¶s Jew-infested legal system to their own ends! Chairman Arafat pretended to punish the mujahedeen who carried out this attack, in order to fool those in the Zionist entity naïve enough to believe he wished peace. Shooter Imad Hinawi was given a ten-minute trial and sentenced to ten years in prison. In February 1997 he was granted leave for the Id al-Fitr holiday, and was told not to return to jail. Under Zionist and Crusader pressure, the Palestinian Authority police rearrested Hinawi in February 1998 and sentenced him to 10 years hard labor, but in November 1998 Hinawi was again released and is now preparing to strike again. The other Hamas member who put an end to Boim¶s life, Khalil Sharif, blew himself up in last September¶s triple-genocide bombing in Occupied Jerusalem¶s Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall. May he enjoy the paradise willed to him forever! 157 Muhammed Abdul Hamid Khalil Salah is also another target of the Boims. In June 1998, the Americans filed a civil assets-forfeiture suit against Muhammed Salah. Such actions are frequently used to seize the money and property of drug dealers. In the Muhammed Salah case, the U.S. Attorney¶s Office went after personal property and accounts in seven banks, with a total estimated value of $1.5 million.158 A judgment for $156 million was issued against the Holy Land Foundation, and Qur¶anic Literacy Institute and some of other of our front groups but I assure you the Boims will never be allowed to profit from their son¶s death. AMERICANS FOR MIDDLE EAST UNDERSTANDING/ARAMCO Americans For Middle East Understanding is a Wahhabist-sponsored non-profit organization that is helpful in convincing the Christian clergy that Islamists are no threat to their existence. Saudi Aramco - the largest supplier of crude oil and natural gas liquids in the world founded this organization.

Americans For Middle East Understanding, as has the Muslim World League.159 Americans For Middle East Understanding consists of businessmen with close ties to Saudi Arabia such as Americans For Middle East Understanding President Jack B. Sunderland, the CEO of the American Independent Oil Company, which won the Neutral Zone concession from Kuwait in 1948 and Richard Hobson, Jr., Vice President, Olayan America, a multi-national enterprise with a home market of Saudi Arabia and a foundation that helped fund the Edward Said chair at Columbia University.160 Americans For Middle East Understanding¶s Vice President, Robert L. Norberg, was director of the Saudi Aramco Services Company office in Washington, D.C. Americans For Middle East Understanding Director Dr. John F. Mahoney spent more than a year with Aramco in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, where he taught management courses and ³got to know a lot of Saudis and Palestinians.´161 Americans For Middle East Understanding Director Talcott W. Seelye is the former U.S. Ambassador to Tunisia and Syria. Seelye was known as an Arabist at the State Department.162 Americans For Middle East Understanding Director Edward L. Peck served as an Embassy Officer in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Egypt, and Chief of Mission in Iraq under the Carter Administration. At the State Department, he served as Deputy Director of Covert Intelligence Programs, Director in the office of Egyptian Affairs, and Special Assistant to the Under Secretary for Political Affairs. At the Pentagon, he worked as the Liaison Officer to the Joint Chiefs of Staff and was a Fellow at the Institute of Higher Defense Studies. At the White House, he served as Deputy Director of Vice President Bush¶s Cabinet Task Force on Combating Terrorism.163 The Learned Elders of Islam wish that America had more ³terrorism´ experts like Peck. This is what Peck said about the September 11th Raids: So we have come out with 21 pages of proof that Usama bin Laden was involved. I have read that material. That¶s allegations. That¶s not proof. It¶s an entirely different thing. Proof of what it means to us. So, yes, he¶s not a nice guy, Saddam Hussein. But I think that the costs to our nation and its interests of taking him out are probably vastly exceeding anything we would gain by doing it.164 He would like to develop nuclear weapons, but you cannot hide a nuclear weapons development program. And if you are going to build nuclear weapons, the only time they become dangerous is when you have a delivery system, and you can¶t hide that either. The overflights of Iraq are illegal. There is no justification in any form for doing that. We do it because we can, period. And from the overflights, whenever we feel like it, we drop bombs on a totally prostrate defenseless nation of

Iraq. Why don¶t we like the Iraqis? It is because Saddam Hussein has fired missiles into Israel. Why I feel less than safe is because what we have been doing to the Iraqi people for the last 11 years makes an awful lot of people angry at us, angry enough to try to find some way to make us sorry we are doing it. Peck considers the Jews occupiers of Palestinian land. He said the Palestinians look at the suicide bombers as freedom fighters. ³When I was a boy, all of the people in Europe who were fighting against the German occupiers were called freedom fighters. In Palestine, they are called terrorists. The suicide bombers, what a horror they are. But look at the concept embodied in American history: We had our first person executed as a spy who said, µMy only regret is that I have but one life to give for my country.¶ Patrick Henry said, µGive me liberty or give me death.¶ So, this is not all that unusual.´ When Saddam Hussein was in power Peck was certain the Iraqi people would not rise up against him: ³First, they can¶t because this is not a fuzzy-puppy government. Marches on the palace in Baghdad are very short and you are only around for one. Secondly, they don¶t want to.´165 Ambassador Peck166 was correct in his assessment of Iraq. Hussein and his Government continued to enjoy overwhelming popular Sunni support. He received 99.96% of the vote in an October 1995 referendum on his presidency. In 2002 100% of Iraq¶s voters gave him another seven-year term as President. Bush the Younger would never get 100% of the vote ± in fact he didn¶t even receive a majority when he started his first term of office. IRAQI SECULAR LAW TOUGHER THAN SHARIAH Under Saddam the list of offenses requiring a mandatory death penalty included sabotaging the national economy, forgery, smuggling cars, spare parts, material, heavy equipment, and machinery. Membership in certain political parties was punishable by death. The mere suggestion that someone was not a supporter of the President carried the prospect of the death penalty. Security agents decapitated numerous women and men in front of their family members. The victim¶s heads were displayed in front of their homes for several days. Thirty of the victims¶ names reportedly were published, which included three doctors and one medical assistant. Prison cleansing campaigns involved periodically killing certain inmates making Saddam¶s prisons into death camps. A 1990 decree granted immunity to men who commit ³honor crimes.´ Another 1992 decree granted immunity from prosecution to members of the Ba¶ath Party and security forces who killed anyone while in pursuit of army deserters. This decree was applied to prevent trials or punishment of government officials acting in an official capacity.167 On October 20, 2002, tens of thousands of Iraqi prisoners, including deserters, were released to

freedom after Saddam Hussein declared an amnesty that emptied all of Iraq¶s prisons. Only Zionist and American spies and murderers who had not settled the blood money owed to victims¶ families under Islamic law were exempted. Less than 100,000 prisoners were released including many criminals who are now partisans. Only 2.5% of Iraqi¶s population was incarcerated compared to America¶s 5%. Enemies of Islam also ³disappeared´ into the hands of the secret police, never to be heard from again, perhaps 200,000. Scores of immoral women were executed under the Islamist ³return to faith´ campaign that banned drinking alcohol in public and mandated the execution of prostitutes in public put into effect just before the American occupation. THE CLERGYMEN OF AMERICANS FOR MIDDLE EAST UNDERSTANDING The businessman and former Ambassadors of Americans For Middle East Understanding are joined by Professors of Religious Studies, Executives in the H.R. Presbyterian Synod of the Northeast, retired Presbyterian ministers, biblical scholars along with C. Herbert Oliver. Oliver dates back to 1967, when a revolutionary, Black Nationalist plan for community control, was implemented in the school district of Ocean Hill-Brownsville, Brooklyn. Communist revolutionists such as Lynne Stewart and Black nationalists like her husband Ralph Poynter sought to replace the District¶s predominantly white teachers with people of color. Leslie Campbell, a black teacher, wrote: ³The Devil can never educate us. All devils must go! The colony must begin to build a school system free of any influence or contact with the devil¶s system.´ Another teacher168 wrote: ³The Jew is now our exploiter.´ And so, on May 7, 1968, 18 white educators were illegally fired, precipitating the city¶s longest-ever teachers¶ strike. The Jewish Defense League was formed to force the blacks to retain these Jewish teachers. C. Herbert Oliver, who was Chairman of the Ocean Hill-Brownsville School Board fought against these Judaists. This first encounter with Judaists was the fertile ground that helped turn Lynne Stewart and her husband Ralph Poynter against the racist Jews. Americans for Middle East Understanding publishes a journal that correctly defines the meaning of ³suicide bomber´ ± ³Often used by the Western media to describe a Palestinian who detonates explosives strapped to his or her body. Such a Palestinian does not see this as an act of suicide, which is prohibited by Islam. Rather, it is seen as a legitimate means of defense on the part of an occupied people and, as such, worthy of Islam¶s most exalted honor, that of shaheed. Palestinians speak of a µmartyrdom operation¶ as opposed to µsuicide bombing.¶´169 Clergy, Defense Department high officials, Ambassadors, politicians are all willing to help further Wahhabism, from which springs Jihad. Our triumph has been rendered easier by the fact that in our relations with the kuffar we have always worked upon the most sensitive chords of the human mind, upon the cash account, upon the cupidity, upon the insatiability for material needs of man; and each one of these human

weaknesses, taken alone, is sufficient to paralyze initiative, for it hands over the will of men to the disposition of him who has bought their activities. THE SEA THAT WE SWIM IN: THE TERRORIST LOBBY AMERICAN-ARAB ANTI-DISCRIMINATION COMMITTEE The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) often works jointly with the Council on American Islamic-Relations (CAIR): The American-Arab AntiDiscrimination Committee and CAIR filed a lawsuit in the United States district court for the central district of California, complaining that the INS unlawfully arrested large numbers of people between December 16, 2002 and December 18, 2002 in Los Angeles because they were in the United States illegally. The lawsuit sought an immediate injunction to avoid similar detention arrests since they were illegal because the government had not obtained the necessary arrest warrants. In July 1986, the board unanimously elected Abdeen Jabara president of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. Jabara closed his law office in Detroit after twenty years of practice and moved to Washington to assume his new position. Jabara served as president of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee until 1990. American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee members are well aware of the Islamists desire to destroy American democracy by internal means and sympathize with it, but none-the-less the ADC claims to be a loyal patriotic, progressive, democracyloving organization. Nabih Ayad, counsel for the ADC, represented Mohamed Nasser al-Ajji of Detroit when Ajji was charged with a minor offense related to Social Security fraud. At al-Ajji¶s detention hearing in federal court the government released documents portraying al-Ajji as a former Mujahadeen fighter with a deep hatred of America who recently wrote to a Yemeni religious leader asking about the ethics of a suicide attack, then pasted the fatwa on the wall of his home. ³Whoever killed himself by explosives is a self killer and not a martyr, even if he kills the enemies as well,´ the response said. ³But if he was ignorant...he shall not be blamed for his deed.´ 170 Nabih Ayad also represented Omar Abdel-Fatah Al-Shishani, a Chechen who grew up in Jordan, who was charged with bringing counterfeit checks totaling $12 million into the United States. The checks were made payable to Shishani¶s Indonesian business associate, Baharuddin Masse, and drawn on the fictitious Pomona, California branch of West America Bank. When he was arrested, Omar Abdel-Fatah Shishani carried a paper with Arabic verses from the Qu¶ran that referred to martyrs and apocalyptic events, FBI agents said. Nabih Ayad¶s motion to preclude prosecutors from
. According to the detention request, New York City police got a call December 17, 2002 from Fakrudin A. Mallahi, saying that his ex-brother-in-law, al-Alajji, was a terrorist and was ³getting ready to bomb you guys.´ In a later call, Mallahi said Alajji soon would carry out an al-Qaeda attack in Michigan. ³Mallahi went on to describe al-Alajji as a fundamentalist, who is ready to die,´ it said. AlAlajji, 31, had obtained a hazardous materials driver¶s license. Ayad was able to get his client released and al-Alajji returned to Yemen.

using so-called terror related terms during Shishani¶s trial was granted by a federal judge. The excluded phrases and terms are: FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, al-Qaeda, all Qur¶anic verses, terrorism, terrorist groups, terrorism Watch List, Afghanistan, Usama bin Laden, training camps, Muslim, Jordanian Intelligence Service, Omar Abdel Rahman, Fatah and Jihad. ³While Omar Abdel-Fatah Shishani claimed to have no sympathy for terrorism, he believed that this business associate, Baharuddin Masse may belong to al-Qaeda, as he has made pro al-Qaeda statements and named his daughter al-Qaeda,´ Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Straus wrote.171 Shishani also told federal authorities he could assist their investigation, prosecutors said. ³In response to questions relating to terrorism, Shishani stated words to the effect: If you want to know about terrorism, I can help you with that.´ Nabih Ayad said his client never made this statement, and family members in Jordan said Shishani was simply a wealthy computer salesman. A 10-year veteran of the Secret Service was suspended for six months and forfeited more than $87,400 in salary for scrawling ³Islam is Evil´ and ³Christ is King´ on a Muslim prayer calendar while searching Shishani¶s home.172 Omar Abdel-Fatah Shishani would later try to discredit the testimony of Youssef Hmimssa (who testified against our Detroit sleeper cell) by claiming that Hmimssa had told him, when they were both in federal prison, that he did not know if the Detroit sleeper cell headed by Abdel Ilah Elmardoudi had anything to do with so-called ³terrorism´ ± ³He said, µI don¶t know; I just want to get revenge because they stole from me. They destroyed my life.¶´173 Assistant U.S. Attorney Keith Corbett asked Shishani if it was true that he had told other prisoners he would take revenge on the judge and the prosecutor and that he knew the family of Usama bin Laden. The Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) is investigating if Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Convertino, who prosecuted the Brothers in Detroit tried to persuade a pretrial services employee at U.S. District Court to turn over confidential information about Omar Shishani, so Convertino could discredit him and withheld evidence that defense lawyers could have used to attack the credibility of the co-operator Hmimssa's trial testimony. In late 2001, Detroit drug dealer Milton ³Butchy´ Jones sent a letter to the U.S. Attorney¶s Office indicating Hmimssa had told him that he had lied to the FBI.174 He said Hmimssa also said he helped the 9/11 hijackers obtain identification: ³He got to telling me how he lied to the FBI, how he fooled the Secret Service agent on his case. Youssef Hmimssa get to telling me the roll he played with the terrorists of September 11, 2001 and how he made ID and documents for them to get around any where in the world.´ Judge Rosen has ordered

USING ANTI-DISCRIMINATION LAWS TO OUR ADVANTAGE Americans, in the throes of their misguided patriotism, are weary of hiring ArabAmericans, even those with citizenship or green cards. Anti-discrimination laws of the United States will be evoked should any employer¶s waiver in hiring those of Middle Eastern descent, as will laws against racial profiling. We have already had a certain degree of success in this area. When Amad Elden Abdou, whose name appeared on the Rahman Unindicted Co-Conspirator List, was fired from his job at Whole Foods of Soho in November 1998 he and several other employees went to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to complain. Abdou said he ³was specifically told never to pray over there even on my break time.´ He did not get his job back because the store closed, however, he did receive $38,000 in compensation.176 This is where the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee will play an important role in our plan to destroy Judeao-Christian civilization. The ADC has a legal department that will handle our racial profiling or anti-discrimination cases for free. Many greedy employers would risk a security breach rather than fight a prolonged, expensive legal battle in the courts; especially if they have to hire a greedy Jewish lawyer who will cause them to loose even if they win! COMMUNIST TERRORIST LOBBY NATIONAL LAWYER¶S GUILD Sister Lynne Stewart has received considerable support from the National Lawyer¶s Guild as have many Islamists trapped in Gitmo. We regard the National Lawyer¶s Guild as a Communist Front group. Look at the Guild¶s history: In 1939 the Guild refused to adopt a resolution condemning the Hitler-Stalin pact.177 Guild members lobbied against the Smith Act that outlawed organizations like the Communist Party U.S.A., which were presumed to be ³conspiring to advocate and overthrow the U.S. government by force and violence.´ As a result of this pro-Communist activity, the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) cited the Guild as a Communist-front organization. The Guild testified against Truman's loyalty oath program and Guild members were subpoenaed to testify before HUAC, having been named by informant Whittaker Chambers as members of the Communist Party. HUAC issued a publication entitled The Guild: Bulwark of the Communist Party designed to show a relationship between the two. Guild members led the defense in espionage trials of Ethel & Julius Rosenberg and Morton Sobell. Now the Guild is defending the defenders of the avowed killers of communists, the Islamists although they cannot admit this to themselves and when Stewart was

arrested, the Guild condemned her federal indictment ³and the impact on attorney-client privilege that it will have.´ Later Stewart said: ³I have gotten outstanding support, not only from the so-called radical or leftist lawyers of the National Lawyers Guild and other organizations but from the other organizations, from the everyday mainstream lawyers.´178 Why have the leftists and communists of America provided al-Qaeda with much help and support knowing that our avowed aim is to eradicate all communists and their sympathizers? They have no program of their own, no faith in Allah, and have become simply a hate America cult. They also feel that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. They are deluded and self-destructive and will be destroyed just as the leftist socalled Mujahedeen (MKO) was destroyed in Iran. PROTOCOL 6. ± ON THE EVE OF MASS DESTRUCTION Our right lies in force. The word right is an abstract thought and it is proved by nothing. The word means no more than: ³Give me what I want in order that thereby I may have a proof that I am stronger than you.´ Our countersign is force. Only force conquers in political affairs. Violence must be the principle, and cunning and makebelieve the weapons against governments which do not want to lay down their crowns at the feet of agents of Islam. This evil is the one and only means to attain the end, the good. Therefore al-Qaeda must not stop at developing nuclear weapons that should serve towards the attainment of our end. In politics one must know how to prevent the seizure of property without hesitation. Israel¶s might lies in its military. Israel was fifth place in the world arms export league in 2002 with record sales of $4.18 billion, 70% up on 2001. We have learned time and time again that the American military cannot be defeated by conventional means as our lands have been overrun in Afghanistan and Iraq. We have also learned that the weapons America most fears are nuclear and Bush the Younger has vowed he will not allow them to ³proliferate´ and fall into Islamist hands. With nuclear weapons, which were invented over fifty years ago, America¶s tanks, infantry, cavalry, armed personnel carriers, can be destroyed and the playing field leveled. Our might will be consummated only after we have acquired nuclear chemical and biological weapons and use them successfully against the West, which is now infinitely more militarily powerful than the Islamic Republics. NUCLEAR WEAPONS: OUR GREATEST HOPE OF DEFEATING AMERICA Khalid Shaikh Mohammed lied about our efforts to manufacture an atomic bomb. Time Magazine reported that Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan, the father of the Pakistan¶s Islamic atomic bomb, met with Khalid Shaikh Mohammed but Khalid Shaikh Mohammed denied this when questioned by the Americans. There were many clues that a Muslim bomb was in the making. In 1998 Iftikhar Chaudhary Khan, a 29-year-old who was a nuclear scientist offered details of Pakistan's nuclear program to the CIA,
178. San Francisco Bay View, California- November 7, 2002.
including information on assistance given to Iran in return for oil. Khan said he had signed a letter of protest along with four other scientists after which he was forced to go into hiding.179 He was brought to America via Canada and granted asylum. There was a campaign by the Pakistani Government to discredit him. First it said Iftikhar Kahn was a disgruntled physics graduate who refused to return from a study trip abroad and a junior technician who was fired. Then he was demoted to an accountant at a ceramic tile firm. Pakistani police jailed then raped his wife.180 Iftikhar Khan held a press conference and produced a Pakistani passport with a stamp that signified a high-security clearance, and a photocopy of his ID card from the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission. Iftikhar Chaudhary Khan said he had attended a meeting with A.Q. Khan. It is well known that Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan, the father of Pakistan¶s atomic bomb, helped Iran for years. The defector Ali Akbar Omid Mehr, who was in charge of Pakistani affairs at Iran's Foreign Ministry in 1989 and 1990, came across Khan as an ally of Tehran: ³I saw that Mr. A. Q. Khan had been given a villa near the Caspian Sea for his help to Iran.´ In the mid 1980's Dr. Khan ordered twice the number of parts the Pakistani nuclear program needed, and then sold the excess to Iran.181 Robert B. Oakley said that A.Q. Khan¶s associate General Mirza Aslam told him in the spring of 1991 that he was discussing nuclear and conventional military co-operation with Iran's Revolutionary Guards.182 A. Q. Khan Research Laboratories offered technology for sale that could be used in nuclear plants and even distributed a pamphlet with a Rawalpindi address, P.O. Box 502, and a picture of Dr. Khan.183 Khan held symposiums on the design of centrifuges and other literature about A.Q. Khan Labs contained broad hints that nuclear technology was available for a price.184 If it were feasible A.Q. Khan would have sold centrifuges on

The conference provided a forum for engineers and scientists in vibration engineering all over the country and abroad to discuss new and advanced ideas in theory, computational or experimental approaches and applications of vibration engineering. Leading professional in this field delivered keynote address on some very interesting themes on the subject, such as Balancing Technology, Vibration Measurement Analysis and Diagnostics, Squeeze Film Dampers etc.´ http://www.krl.com.pk/ Dr. A. Q. Khan Research Laboratories (KRL) is one of the leading manufacturers of defence products in Pakistan. A full-fledged research and industrial complex, KRL is producing some of the most valuable weaponry and defence equipment for the armed forces, besides emerging as a formidable exporter of such products. These include missiles, laser and opto-electronic devices and other related arms and ammunition. In the field of missiles, KRL manufactures the shoulder-fired, short-range anti-aircraft surface-to-air missile "Anza MK-II" and anti-tank missile "Baktar Shikan". Known for their accuracy and technical excellence, both are time-tested and reliable weapon systems. In addition to these weapon systems, the KRL-made Laser Range Finder, Laser Actuated Target, Laser Threat Sensor, Laser Aiming Device & Vacuum-related products [such as centrifuges] also hold great promise in the international market for their highly precise ranging /functioning. http://www.ideaspakistan.com/2002/final%20catlouge.htm A message in the pamplet says, ³" B e s i d e s m a n u f a c t u r i n g o f v a c u u m c o m p o n e n t s a n d s y s t e m s , o u r v a c u u m c o n s u l t a n c y s e r v i c e s a r e a l s o a v a i l a b l e f o r s y s t e m d e s i g n , o p e r a t i o n a l t r o u b l e s h o o t i n g , q u a l i t y a s s u r a n c e , m a i n t e n a n c e , s y s t e m
Ebay. Trade sanctions were slapped on Khan Research Labs (KRL) and on December 2003 two top Pakistani nuclear scientists in Islamabad were arrested by the FBI accused of passing on nuclear secrets to Iran. Dr. Farooq Mohammed and Dr. Yasin Chohan had worked under Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan.185 More of Doctor Khan¶s associates were detained, including scientist Mansoor Ahmed, who is in charge of the KRL cricket stadium. Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Qazi Hussain Ahmad held a rally in support of these scientists during which he asked, ³What would be a higher security risk than this that the nuclear scientists who have transformed the country into nuclear power are being dubbed as anti state elements? Government should set free them or the MMA (a coalition of Islamist groups) will give the call for country-wide movement against the rulers leading to siege of Islamabad.´ Even before the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, Ahmed was in close contact with Afghan mujahideen and had personal terms with top Afghan leaders. He played a pivotal role in introducing Afghan Jihad to foreign world and gaining countrywide favor for the movement.186 In 1998 Iftikhar Chaudhary Khan¶s allegations, were, praise Allah, dismissed by the media however in 2004 the United Nations nuclear agency said Iranian officials disclosed that Pakistanis were among middlemen who the Iranians said had aided Iran in critical aspects of its nuclear weapons program.187 In January 2004 Asher Karni, an Israeli who lives in South Africa, was arrested for having attempted to export triggered spark gaps to Pakistan. These devices can be used to detonate an atomic device. The switches were to be shipped to an established electronics company, Pakland PME Corporation, with forty years experience ³selling electronic test equipment´ while working with Alfred Hempel, a German industrialist and a former Nazi.188 A judge ordered Karni released on $75,000 bail if he stayed in the custody of a rabbi. Had Karni been Muslim rather than Jewish, no bail would have been set for him. The Justice Department, however, objected to his release and was granted another bail hearing. Asher Karni was sentenced August 4, 2005 to a mere three years in federal prison. In January 2004 Musharraf admitted that scientists from his country sold nuclear designs to other nations but claimed they did it for personal financial gain and that his government was unaware of these sales.189 Retired General Mirza Aslam Beg, who headed the Pakistani Army from 1988 to 1991 and who the family of former Pakistani Prime Minister Zia ul-Haq believes was behind the plane crash that killed that killed their father, told a press conference that these scientists should go unpunished since Israel

and Indian scientists had nuclear arsenals, "It's the Jewish lobby, a particular lobby, which tries to portray me [as an Islamist].´190 Dr. Khan was suspended as an advisor to Pakistan¶s prime minister after he admitted transferring nuclear weapons-related designs, drawings and components to Iran between 1989 and 1991. He was detained and told that if he left Pakistan the CIA or the Mossad might kidnap him and that his daughter living in London was also in danger.191 Khan confessed then received a pardon from Musharraf and was allowed to keep the money he had received for transferring the technology.192 A.Q. Kahn has been under house arrest since 2004. Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan also helped Iraq in its quest to develop nuclear weapons. Dr. Khan¶s name appeared in a letter offering to manufacture a nuclear weapon for Saddam Hussein.193 Saddam Hussein told aides after the Gulf War that his greatest mistake was to invade Kuwait before he had a nuclear weapon, because then the United States would never have dared to oppose him. In August 1990 Saddam ordered a crash program to build one nuclear weapon that failed only because the Iraqis could not enrich enough uranium in time. Saddam¶s scientists planned to dig a shaft vertically and then horizontally to create a chamber to test a device. He surveyed many areas in the desert particularly in the southwest desert, in areas less populated. Saddam Hussein intended to launch it as a revenge weapon at Tel Aviv if his regime started to collapse. Saddam Hussein made no bones about his desire to obtain an atomic bomb and this was why America honestly believed he had WMDs: The international and technical organization related to nuclear industries have a clear and comprehensive picture about what the nuclear options of the Zionist entity and its strategic aims are in the Arab Homelands. These options center on developing its non-conventional military capabilities and denying the Arab the chance to possess them. Having such capabilities, the Arab will be able to deter the Zionist entity. The Arab will also force it to think twice before using its capabilities to achieve its expansionistic intentions. The Arab must give their due concern and attention to this fact to confront the Zionist entity with all possible means. His Excellency the President Saddam Hussein (May God save Him) made it clear to the Egyptian president Mubarak in 1990 that the Arab is ready to join any convention to keep the area free from mass destruction weapons, not only the ballistic missiles, on condition that the Zionist entity should be the first to sign it.194 After the occupation of Iraq a ³top secret´ intelligence memo dated May 20, 2001, from the Iraqi intelligence station chief in an African country described an offer by a ³holy warrior´ to sell uranium and other nuclear material. The offer was rejected then

possibly postponed for a later time.195 It is believed the material originated in South Africa. THE ISLAMIST A-BOMB Usama bin Laden spoke: If I have indeed acquired these [nuclear] weapons, then I thank God for enabling me to do so. And if I seek to acquire these weapons, I am carrying out a duty. It would be a sin for Muslims not to try to possess the weapons that would prevent the kuffar from inflicting harm on Muslims! It is much easier to create a gun-type Improvised Nuclear Weapon from Highly Enriched Uranium than it is from plutonium. With Highly Enriched Uranium not much engineering is necessary because it suffices to drop two parts on each other that will then combine to an overcritical mass and explode. However, we must study how to shoot the two parts on each other rather quickly which is more difficult than it seems. Would al-Qaeda still be trying to get nuclear material if we had these WMD¶s? Would we have not used them when the Zionist entity invaded the West Bank of Palestine, exterminated our Brothers and sisters in the concentration camps they have forced them to live in for decades upon decade? We have tried and we will try to obtain them, with the help of Allah [subhanahu wa ta¶ala]. The Brothers in al-Qaeda, including Mohamed Bayazid and Mahmdouh Mahmud Salim, attempted to get enriched uranium from South Africa, which once had six atomic weapons. But this operation was never consummated and was exposed when Jamal Ahmed Mohammed al-Fadl, testified in an American court that his superior ordered him to buy uranium from a former Sudanese army officer. Fadl was asked: Q. What happened when you went to that street in Khartoum? A. Basheer, he told me, µAre you serious?¶ µYou want uranium?¶ I tell him yes. I know people, they are very serious, and they want to buy it. And he told me get the money ready, and say what do they need? They need the information about uranium, they want to know which quality, which the country make it, and after that we going to talk with you about the price. He said I going to give you this information in a paper, and we need $1,500,000, and everything go well. We need the money outside of Sudan. Q. And the price was how much? A. He said he needed $1,500,000. And he said this is for the uranium. But he needed commission for himself, and he needed commission for Salah Abdel al Mobruk. After that he tell me how you going to check it? I tell him

I don't know, I have to go to these people and I tell them what you tell me and I give you answer for that. I went to Ikhlak company in Baraka building in Khartoum City, and I told him about the whole information, and he say tell him we have our machine, electric machine, we going to check the uranium but first we want to see and we want information. We want to see the cylinder and we want to need information about the quality and which country it make. And he tell me, he give me a little paper and he tell me give him this paper and this information we need. I took the information and I go back to Fadhl Shaheedin and I told him I need meeting with Basheer«And we went over there and we, they took us inside house in Bait al Mal, and after few minutes they bring a big bag and they open it, and it cylinder, like this tall. (two to three feet) And they give us a paper and it¶s a lot written in the cylinder. It¶s like engraved -- Abu Rid¶ al Suri looked ± his paper and he looked to the cylinder, and after that he say OK, that is good. I went to Abu Hajer [Mahmdouh Mahmud Salim] in his house and I give him the paper and he need it and he say OK. [On the paper] it¶s information, I remember it say South Africa and serial number and quality something. We wait for machine come from Kenya to check it«Abdel Marouf told me about what happened to the uranium. He told me« Q. Don¶t tell me what he said. You tried to find out if it was enriched or not enriched? A. What is ³enriched´? Q. It was really to be made into a bomb immediately or had to have something else done to it? A. The quality, yes. Q. That was to see if this uranium was good enough to build a bomb to kill a whole lot of people, right? A. Yes. When we examined the uranium in Cyprus the jihadi found that it was low-grade uranium ore, and the deal was never consummated. Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood is a Pakistani nuclear scientist who believes that sunspots control history and moral decadence causes natural catastrophes who was a member of the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission and attended the meeting of nuclear scientists summoned by Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto on January 20, 1972, that formally launched Pakistan¶s nuclear weapons program. Usama bin Laden had close contact with Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood as Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood had been trying to get hold of supplies of plutonium and enriched uranium to send to the Taliban. The Taliban gave Bashiruddin permission to conclude business deals on their behalf and his
organization Ummah Tameer-e-Nau,196 a non-governmental organization formed after his retirement that was affiliated with the U.S. banned Al-Rashid Trust, one of Usama bin Laden¶s many sources of income.197 Sultan Bashir-ud-Din Mahmood is still the President of Ummah Tameer-e-Nau, an organization engaged in relief, rehabilitation and reconstruction activities, whose real aim was and is, to get an atomic bomb to the Taliban. Ummah Tameer-e-Nau is connected to the Human Development Foundation, which still raises money for the Taliban within the United States. Most of Ummah Tameer-e-Nau¶s members consist of doctors, physicists, microbiologists, nuclear scientists and military officers with links to Pakistani intelligence. The Human Development Foundation¶s organizational partner is the Tameer-e-Millat Foundation. The July 4, 2003 issue of "Muslims" published an article reporting on Lyndon LaRouche's address to an event held by the PakistaniAmerican Tameer-e-Millat (National Building) Foundation in New York City on June 28, 2003 and attended by over 300 people including Shafqat Chaudhary, President of the New York Chapter of the American Muslim Alliance.198 Tameer-e-Millat is a literacy foundation that runs Shifa Hospital in Islamabad that was conceived in 1985 to treat Afghan mujahedeen who had been wounded in the fight against Godless communism.199 In August 2006 Pakistani police officers arrested 29 Taliban fighters at the privately run al Khair Hospital in Quetta.200 From January 2007 to February 2007 six shaheeds detonated bombs in the North Western Frontier Provinces including one in a courthouse in Quetta that killed 15 people including a senior judge. Bashiruddin advocated equipping other Islamic nations with enriched uranium and weapons-grade plutonium. During 2001 Brothers in the Ummah Tameer-e-Nau met with Elders Usama and Mullah Muhammad Omar, and discussed the development of nuclear weapons. During a follow-up meeting, an associate of Usama bin Laden indicated he had nuclear material and wanted to know how to use it to make a weapon. Bashiruddin provided information about the infrastructure needed for a nuclear weapons program. In November 2001, the Taliban were forced from Kabul by American puppets and the workers at the Ummah Tameer-e-Nau¶s Kabul offices fled the area with them. Searches of these offices in Kabul have given the enemy documents outlining basic nuclear physics related to nuclear weapons.201 Bashiruddin was interrogated for four days then hospitalized.202 Bashiruddin released this statement through his son, as he was under a gag order from Pakistani intelligence:

Basically Usama bin Laden asked my father, µHow can a nuclear bomb be made and can you help us make one?¶ My father said, µNo, and secondly you must understand it is not child¶s play for you to build a nuclear bomb.¶ At one meeting they brought a box, a thing that someone had sold to them for a huge amount of money, but my father laughed and said it was nothing. They had asked me to devise a radiological bomb. It would be constructed from nuclear material wrapped in conventional high explosive which bin Laden had obtained from a nuclear storage site in Uzbekistan. I refused to do so. Despite a CIA request to have him transferred to the United States, Bashiruddin was set free. Many nuclear scientists have fled Pakistan, possibly to Iran including associates of A. Q. Khan and Bashiruddin.203 The Taliban also tried to recruit Russian nuclear scientists, according to testimony given to the United Nations Security Council, and Mullah Mohammed Khaksar told the Western press that with 10 capsules of ³uranium´ stuffed into a sock, Taliban officials once drove off in search of buyers or ideas for what to do with the smuggled material: ³The Taliban had no experience with such things. We were simple mullahs.´ Mullah Mohammed Khaksar told of former jihadi in the 1996-2001 government selling uranium to one another, and said he advised supreme leader Mullah Mohammed Omar to stay out of the trade because the goods appeared phony.204 The Americans found documents in our Afghan caves analyzing the wind patterns in Washington, D.C.

ENRICHED URANIUM FROM RUSSIA In January 2006 Oleg Khinsagov came to meet a buyer who he believed would pay him $1 million and deliver 100 grams of uranium so refined that it could help fuel an atom bomb to a Muslim man from ''a serious organization.´ The uranium was a sample, just under four ounces, and the deal a test: If all went smoothly, he boasted, he would sell a far larger cache stored in his apartment back in Vladikavkaz, two to three kilograms of the rare material, four and a half to six and a half pounds, which in expert hands is enough to make a small bomb. The buyer, it turned out, was a Georgian agent.205 We will eventually obtain radioactive material. From 1993 to 2002 the United States has discovered 175 cases of trafficking in nuclear material and 201 cases of trafficking in other radioactive sources such as medical and industrial products and wastes. Only 18 of these cases have actually involved small amounts of highly enriched uranium or plutonium. Islamists have repeatedly tried to get weapons grade nuclear materials from the former Soviet Union and its former satellites. A kilogram of weapongrade uranium was stolen from the Luch Production Association in 1992 and three kilograms of weapon-grade uranium was stolen in Moscow in 1994. In October 2002 a Russian citizen was arrested trying to smuggle 27 tons (29.75 U.S. tons) of enriched uranium out of the country, according to the state customs agency.206 The American government considers its own people children, who must be kept in the dark least they go into a collective sissy-fit. In October 2001, an intelligence alert went out to the Energy Department¶s top-secret Nuclear Emergency Search Team. The CIA report said that Islamists were thought to have purchased a 10-kiloton nuclear weapon from corrupt Russians and planned to smuggle it into New York City. The source of the report was DRAGONFIRE, whose reliability was untested. But DRAGONFIRE¶s claim meshed with that of the Russian leader Alexander Lebed who claimed Soviet suitcase nukes were missing and so the report was given credibility.207 Detonated in lower Manhattan, in front of the Federal Court Building where many of our Brothers have been sentenced to long prison terms, a 10-kiloton bomb would kill some 100,000 civilians and irradiate 700,000 more, flattening everything in a half-mile diameter, including Wall Street. The first to go would be the false-hearted judges and prosecutors, and the court officers who place our Brothers in chains and cold holding cells as a form of legalized torture. Despite the fact we had not obtained such suitcase nuke, counter terrorist investigators went on their highest state of alert. The suspected nuke¶s alleged existence, however, was kept secret so as not to panic the people of New York even before the Americans became aware that both their sources were lying or mistaken. Senior FBI officials were not informed. Former Phalangist Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said he was never told about the threat, until he read it in Time Magazine in March 2001.

In 2002 Giuliani, may God punish him for his flagrant adultery, even though his wife was a Jew, hired one his oldest friends, Alan J. Placa, as a consultant to the former Mayor¶s anti-³terrorism´ company. Placa was a priest who was suspended from the ministry after an allegation that he molested a teenage seminarian about 25 years ago. Although not mentioned by name, a grand jury report stated that Priest ³F´ groped teenage boys through their clothes and made several ³feeble attempts´ to grope an altar boy. Father Placa was an expert on clerical sexual abuse and contributed to a book entitled Slayer of the Soul: Child Sexual Abuse and the Catholic Church.208 Martin Barreto, a pervert close to Giuliani was found naked, stabbed to death in his Manhattan apartment. Yet, when Arafat visited New York City, Giuliani, out of so-called moral indignation, refused to invite him to any city-sponsored events and insisted that Chairman Arafat leave Lincoln Center in the middle of a concert! THE MEDIA AND MYTH OF THE SUITCASE NUKES In the past, many of our attempts to develop atomic weapons have met with failure. The Western media wonders if we have acquired suitcase-sized nuclear weapons? In a psychological assault on the West that played on these fears Ayman alZawahiri claimed al-Qaeda bought briefcase nuclear bombs on the central Asian blackmarket. ³If you have US$30 million, go to the black market in central Asia, contact any disgruntled Soviet scientist and a lot of dozens of smart briefcase bombs are available. They have contacted us, we sent our people to Moscow, to Tashkent, to other central Asian states and they negotiated and we purchased some suitcase bombs.´209 It was true that the Soviets had hundreds of these Atomic Demolition Munitions (ADMs). The ADM was about the size of a large footlocker and could be carried for short distances by two men. It was basically a modified atomic artillery shell. The so-called ³suitcase´ nukes used plutonium. With plutonium there is the question whether the nuclear material is still weapon usable. Weapons plutonium normally must be reprocessed within five to ten years. This certainly has not been done with Russian ³suitcase´ nukes, so that the energy of a nuclear explosion with this material would probably be rather small by this time. On September 7, 1997 the CBS newsmagazine Sixty Minutes broadcast a story in which former Russian security chief Alexander Lebed claimed that the Soviet Union created perhaps one hundred ADMs, and that many were unaccounted for. Lebed was fired as national security adviser on October 17, 1996 amid intense political fighting while President Boris Yeltsin was awaiting heart surgery. Lebed admited that he had only preliminary results of his investigation at that time, and these results were the basis of his subsequent claims. Lebed was telling the truth about the production of these weapons, but the Communists kept close track of them least they fall into the hands of their many enemies. These low-yield (circa 1 kiloton) devices were to be used by Special Forces for wartime sabotage and thus were small, portable, and not equipped with standard safety devices to prevent unauthorized detonation. Lebed told Congress

in Russian that they were ³footlocker´ size but his interpreter translated that into ³suitcase´ in English. Lebed immediately understood his interpreter had made an error and tried to correct it. Lebed, elected governor of Krasnoyarsk Province was killed when a helicopter he was in hit a power line on April 29, 2002. No tactical nuclear weapon can fit inside a suitcase. What America did to counter the Soviet weapon was to remove the warhead from a Davey Crockett missile, that was basically an atomic artillery shell, and place it in a large trunk along with a detonator. The warhead used on the Davey Crockett weighed just 51 pounds and was the smallest and lightest fission bomb (implosion type) ever deployed by the United States, with a variable explosive yield of 0.01 kilotons (equivalent to 10 tons of TNT, or two to four times as powerful as the ammonium nitrate bomb which destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah federal building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995), or 0.02 kilotons - 1 kiloton. The Davy Crockett warhead was designed to explode upon impact so the so-called suitcase nuke required an explosive detonator that weighed at least twenty pounds. Along with weight of the lead encased trunk the suitcase nuke would weigh at least 100 pounds. During a Congressional hearing on Russian espionage held by Representatives Dan Burton and Curt Weldon on January 24, 2000 in Washington, D.C. Dr. Alexie Yablokov, former Science Advisor to Boris Yeltsin stated that he was ³absolutely certain´ that the KGB had manufactured suitcase ±sized nuclear weapons for use during the 1970s. He said he had met with scientists who designed these weapons, which he said would not have been included on any ³official list´ of Soviet nuclear weapons. Yablokov is a distinguished Russian scientist involved in anti-nuclear activism who would not underplay even a rumor of weapons existing of this nature. Soviet ex-colonel and GRU operative Stanislav Lunev who defected to the United States in 1992 after working for more than a decade in the U.S. as a GRU operative was another witness. Lunev claimed that he participated in a GRU program collecting information on the American president and senior U.S. political and military leaders so they could be targeted for assassination in the event of war. According to Lunev, small man-portable nuclear weapons ³that could be disguised to look like a suitcase´ might have been prepositioned in the United States during peacetime to be employed in a decapitating Russian attack against U.S. leaders and key communications and military facilities. Lunev testified that he actively supported the GRU program to pre-position manportable nuclear weapons in the United States by identifying in the U.S. potential hiding places where such weapons could be stored and concealed until needed. Lunev said that he was specially trained to disguise and camouflage these weapons. His testimony was never corroborated by KGB documents released after the fall of the Soviet Union nor was any such nuclear weapon ever found within the borders of the United States. Aside from the existence of Russian suitcase-sized nuclear weapons on U.S. soil, Lunev¶s autobiography included these claims: The Russian Mafia controls the Russian government, the KGB, and the military; the existence and testing of seismic weapons by the Soviets; the KGB¶s possible use of American POW¶s to test the effects of drugs to
be used on Americans; the GRU¶s plan for poisoning U.S. water supplies and the KGB¶s practice of recruiting spies within the United States Congress.210 Leslie Cockburn, who produced the Sixty Minutes story, was busily promoting a book she co-wrote with her husband Andrew on the dangers of nuclear terrorism called One Point Safe and the Cockburns were co-producers of The Peacemaker, a film in which a female nuclear scientist and a military intelligence officer team up to stop an Eastern European terrorist and a renegade Russian mercenary who have stolen nuclear weapons from the former Soviet Union. The narrator of the Sixty Minutes report, exNational Security Council staffer Jessica Stern, was a paid consultant to The Peacemaker. Stern was also working on her own book on nuclear terrorism.211 The Bureau of Customs and Border Protection Project Amber provides basic border control training and advanced courses on the proper utilization of Department of State-provided x-ray vans to detect nuclear materials. If al-Qaeda should in the future obtain a small trunk-sized nuclear device the best way to smuggle it into the US would be sealed in lead in a cargo container. Only 5.4 percent of cargo containers entering America¶s ports in 2003 were inspected.212 RADIOLOGICAL DISPERSION DEVICES Sooner or later al-Qaeda will be successful in obtaining enriched uranium and producing a weapon of mass destruction that will strike immeasurable fear into the hearts of the West. A large chunk of their population and infrastructure will be destroyed, and those who survive will have a quality of life permeated with fear. In the meantime al-Qaeda can strike with the poor man¶s atomic bomb ± the RDD - a crude radiological dispersal device using radioactive sources commonly used in every day life. The number of radioactive sources around the world is vast; those used in radiotherapy alone are in the order of ten thousand. Many more are used in industry; for example, to check for welding errors or cracks in buildings, pipelines and structures. They are also used for the preservation of food. There are a large number of unwanted radioactive sources, many of them abandoned, others being simply ³orphaned´ of any regulatory control. About one radioactive source per day is lost, stolen, or abandoned in the United States. This is one reason why the New York City Department of Sanitation Environmental Police check every garbage truck with a sophisticated radiation detector in case some material used in an RDD ends up in the waste system, a possibility they deemed likely.213 The explosion of such an RDD in New York City would cause a few hundred causalities, but thousands more would suffer and die from radiation poisoning and in a few years the kuffar would be dying off like flies from cancer.

those exposed would be impossible because America has only a single hospital emergency room dedicated to treating patients exposed to radiation hazards, at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The detonation of such a bomb in a U.S. city would have a powerful impact on the conduct of U.S. foreign policy by the Zionist Occupational Government. The backlash would alienate the real Americans from the Zionist Entity and they would come to realize that supporting the Zionist settler state was just too costly. According to the study from the Center for Technology and National Security Policy at the National Defense University, such a detonation would cost $40 billion from the loss of economic activity.214 The mass evacuation of dense urban centers would loom large in the minds of policy-makers, especially after the Jewish Wall Street stock traders fled to their summer homes in the Hamptons, leaving the less wealthy non-Jews to bear the brunt of such an attack. FUEL FOR RDD¶S: THE REMNENTS OF THE FORMER SOVIET UNION Since the glory days of September 2001, the Americans have helped conduct road and foot searches of the post-Soviet state of Georgia for two missing lead containers of strontium-90 and have attempted to recover Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generators, used by the Soviets to power navigational beacons and communications equipment in remote areas, each containing up to 40,000 curies of highly radioactive strontium or cesium. Even a tiny fraction of a single curie of strontium has a high probability of causing a fatal cancer. Cesium and strontium could contaminate large areas if combined with conventional explosives in an RDD. An ex-member of the Bulgarian secret services made public a plan by al-Qaeda to buy spent nuclear rods from the Kozlodui nuclear power station in Bulgaria. He revealed that he was invited to Peshawar, Pakistan, where he was approached by a man calling himself a chemical engineer, who spoke of plans to make a ³dirty bomb,´ which would spread radioactivity over a large area when it exploded in a major city like New York. 215 Authorities arrested four jihadi in Chkalovsk, Tajikistan, for possession of two kilograms of stolen uranium. Our Brothers remained loyal and did not say how they obtained the uranium or what they planned to do with it. Laboratory tests, however, determined it came from a metal plant in Taboshar, near Chkalovsk.216 In Kyrgyzstan in January 2002 masked men armed with clubs forced their way into a once-secret plant. They beat the guards into submission, tied them up, and stole 460 kilograms of a europium oxide powder used in nuclear reactors in manufacturing the rods that control nuclear reactions.217 In September 2002 Ukrainian authorities detained a 55-year-old Russian man in the southwestern Mukachevskiy region near the Hungarian border after allegedly trying to sell four plates of radioactive material weighing 400 grams (14 ounces). Police confiscated the plates, believed to be uranium. Earlier that month police in the southeastern city of Pavlohrad arrested a 26-year-old Russian who allegedly tried to sell a container of strontium-90. Officials believe the suspect obtained the radioactive

A criminal case was opened in connection with the incident under the Illegal Export of Radioactive Substances. The law mandates five years of imprisonment for such a crime. The punishment may extend to eight years of imprisonment if vile use of the substance is proven.219 On May 31, 2003 Georgian authorities found Cesium-137 and Strontium-90 and a container of lethal Mustard Gas in a taxi in Tbilisi. One container, inscribed in Russian and English, weighed at least 170 pounds.220 On October 23, 2003 Latvian authorities intercepted stolen Strontium and detained four people found in the corridor of the University of Latvia's solid-state radiation chemistry laboratory. They were released within a week since Latvian laws do not envisage bringing to trial persons suspected of illegal handling of radioactive substances if not repeated within a one-year period.221 In December 2003 in the Transdniester Moldovan Republic located along Moldova's eastern border 38 Alazan warheads modified to carry radioactive isotopic material disappeared. In the documents describing these weapons the commander requested technical help in dealing with radiation exposure related to storage of the warheads. He complained that uniforms of soldiers working with the warheads were so contaminated that they had to be ³destroyed by burning and burying.´222 There have been thefts of radioactive material throughout the world.223

The Panzhihua 502 power station discovered that the 63 units of cobalt 60 were missing during a routine check on February 22, 2002. Cobalt 60 is a highly radioactive material, with 63 units of cobalt 60 capable of causing radiation damage comparable to that of an Abomb. The four former employees of the power station mistook the cobalt 60, which is coated in lead, for an ordinary metal and sold it to a metal recycling factory for 2.2 Yuan (27 U.S. cents) per kilogram. (Radioactive thieves jailed in Sichuan,´ July 24, 2002 chinadaily.com.cn) In February 2004 a quantity of Cesium-137 was stolen from a construction site near the province of Shannxi, China.

One of the Brothers was enrolled at a commercial flight school and would overfly the Pickering nuclear power plant near Toronto. Two of the Brothers were caught at the same nuclear facility at 4:15 a.m. one night, claiming they were going to the beach. A roommate of one of them used the Global Relief Foundation, an al-Qaeda front, as a reference.
SEALED SOURCES Until the 1950s, only naturally occurring radioactive materials, such as radium226, were available to be used in sealed sources. The term ³sealed source´ is used to distinguish medical, industrial, and research radioactive isotopes from material used in nuclear weapons and as fuel in nuclear reactors. Since then, sealed sources containing radioactive material produced artificially in nuclear reactors and particle accelerators have become widely available, including cobalt-60, strontium-90, technetium-99m, cesium-137, and iridium-192. Under the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, the states retain sole regulatory authority over most naturally occurring radioactive material as well as most sealed sources. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC) jurisdiction extends only to those materials used as a source of material for nuclear fuel or created as a result of irradiation in nuclear reactors. The NRC's licensing process assumes an applicant is acting in good faith and allows applicants to acquire sealed sources as soon as a new license is issued by mail. It can then take NRC as long as 12 months to conduct its first inspection, leaving the possibility those materials will be obtained by al-Qaeda and used to create an RDD in the meantime. The American¶s General Services Administration inspected facilities that were licensed by the state government to possess sealed radioactive substances and reported: ³During a visit to a hospital we were told that sealed sources, including strontium-90, cesium-137, and iridium-192, were securely stored in a room equipped with an electronic lock with limited access. Later, during a tour of the hospital, we found the room unlocked, unattended, and the door propped open. The hospital official explained that this practice was very unusual; he locked the room door after inspection and continued the tour. Shortly thereafter, we passed the room for a second time. Again, the room was unlocked, unattended, and the door propped open. The storage room was in close proximity to the hospital's laundry and maintenance facility, which is accessible to any hospital employee. In addition, an entry to the hospital from the outside was also nearby, and this entrance was not guarded nor equipped with radiation detection equipment to notify security if any sealed sources were being removed or stolen.´224

SPENT FUEL Spent fuel is the alternative choice for the radioactive material to be used in the construction of an RDD. Many tens of thousands of tons of it lie scattered around the world, including small accumulations in Iraq, Iran, Algeria, Libya, Syria, and Pakistan. In the West, it is not as well guarded as actual nuclear weapons. In this regard Sergei Bakhvalov, a top Siberian nuclear scientist was kidnapped225 then executed when he refused to cooperate with us. Bakhvalov disappeared after leaving his home with an unidentified man on August 18, 2002. Bakhvalov was the author of over 80 scientific works and the head of the Kristall research center. This center has been involved in developing unique technologies of disposing of radioactive waste, for the Russian Nuclear Energy Ministry, for 12 years. The Kristall research institute won a contract in 2001 to re-use nuclear fuel from the sunken submarine Kursk. Police sources said their main theory is that Bakhvalov¶s murder was connected with his ³commercial activities,´ dismissing our hand in his demise. In the 1980¶s Benin accepted two shiploads of radioactive waste from France, in exchange for a guarantee of thirty years of economic assistance. The London newsletter Africa Analysis said that Beninoise president Mathieu Kerekou decided that the waste was to be buried on the outskirts of Abomey, near the village of the leading opposition figure, Michel Aikpe, who died in 1975.226 Now the ³Uncle Abdul,´ United States Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham has declared that Washington would spend $3 million in 2003 to help poorer governments secure high-risk radiation sources that could be used for terror weapons. Before the threat of RDD materialized no thought was given to the carcinogenic effects of these substances on people of the Third World. Sources of radioactive waste can be found everywhere ± in New York City an abandoned building that once housed the Radium Chemical Company contained large quantities of ³radium needles´ once used in cancer therapy.227 In September 1997 undetected radioactive americium entered the Royal Green facility in Pennsylvania for recycling. The processing at the plant stripped away the shielding, and, consequently, radiation was detected at the load¶s destination.228 It will be poetic justice if Americans are poisoned by americium. Here is al-Qaeda¶s plan: The radiation source in an ionization chamber smoke detector is a very small disc of americium, about 3 to 5 millimeters in diameter, weighing about 0.5 gram. This amount of americium in a loose powdered form would give a significant dose of radiation if inhaled.229 Smoke detectors are widely available in America and all that is needed to purchase them at wholesale prices in quantity is a resale number and some bogus stationary. A thousand of them will provide enough radioactive powder to cause panic in

a densely populated city like New York. The extracted powder can be spread over a wide area through the use of an aerial bomb. Instructions, materials and chemicals to produce such a device can be found on the website of United Nuclear.230 The plans presented there are easily modified. Simply add the ground up americium to the black powder that goes in the M-80 exploding rocket. When the fuse is lit, the black powder ignites, shooting the M-80 up into the air. At the same time, the flame from the lift charge ignites the delay fuse on the M-80. When the fuse burns out, the M-80 explodes and scatters the radioactive material for several blocks. The U.S. Government Accountability Office became aware of this loophole and reported, Some of the lesser radioactive sources are frequently found by DOE to be kept in quantities where their aggregated radioactivity would be equivalent to an IAEA category 2 source that would present a security concern. These lesser radioactive sources also may be more susceptible to inadvertent loss, which has already led in some cases to radiation exposure, high decontamination costs, and public panic. IAEA acknowledged in its Code of Conduct that its categorization of high-risk radiological sources is based on health effects and does not fully take into account the range of impacts that could result from accidents or malicious acts involving radioactive sources.231 American intelligence had to admit that al-Qaeda has acquired small quantities of radioactive material to be used in an RDD232 as the British had already revealed this, after they sent infiltrators into our al-Qaeda training camps in Afghanistan. We acquired radioactive medical isotopes from the Taliban then, in our nuclear laboratory in the Afghan city of Herat, we ground the medical isotopes into a fine powder. For every tablespoon of high explosives, we mixed well one tablespoon of the powdered isotope. Then we added a dash of napalm or industrial glue. Although we never used the weapon in the field nor has any such weapon been discovered, it caused incapacitating radiation poisoning to the Brother who put it together.
