Close Shave



The FBI has arrested a 20-year old Saudi Arabian man, a college student "studying" in Texas, for buying bomb-making materials with the intent of commiting terrorist acts of jihad, including the possible assassination of President George W. Bush.

Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, who certainly doesn't sound like an Islamic radical and surely fits no profiles, apparently got a scholarship to a small college in Lubbock, Texas specifically so he could improve his English and "blend in"...to better advance his actual goal of causing death and destruction.

Aldawsari had created lists of potential targets including hydroelectric dams and nuclear facilities, but had a special enmity for George W. Bush, whom he referred to as the "Tyrant"...perhaps after hearing similar descriptions from Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, and The View.

The wannabee terrorist was investigating ways to hide his bombs inside "infant dolls," as well as possibly targeting a nightclub with a backpack bomb.


Hope n' Change wants to state, in the strongest possible way, that this does not mean anyone should be suspicious of young, surly, Arabic men who just happen to be wearing a backpack...many of whom probably have no intention of blowing themselves up to get laid.

On the other hand, if the guy is carrying a doll - run for your life.




"Assalam o alaikum! I am peace-loving Swedish
exchange student named Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari!"

I don't think poor little Khalid will get in to much trouble... Uncle Hussien Obongo, Auntie Neapolotin O, and Gad Father Eric H will rush to his defense bail him out... and with the sterling character references he'll get from Sissie Chrissie M, Wretched Mad-cow, and the ACLU... how can he lose?

Please, everyone, lets not rush to judgement. (Unless he's registered as an "R")

A big thank you to the private companies that reported this a**hole when he attempted to buy the third component to make his explosives. A big kick in the rear to the other companies that allowed him to buy the rest of his bomb-making materials. And I'd sure like to know more about just how we award and track visas for these peaceful people.

I still don't get the "72 virgins" thing. Eternity is a pretty long time; like really really long. So after about, what, three months there, you have "boinked" all your virgins and none of them are virgins anymore, so what do you do to amuse yourself for the remining, infinity years?

Colby_Muenster- According to the Kurana Sutra, the appeal of the 72 virgins isn't so much their virginity as the fact that none of them will have any basis of experience to say either "you're the lousiest lover I've ever had" or "Isn't it supposed to be bigger than my pinky finger...?"

just wait until the jihadist d'bags find out that the 72 virgins are all men.....

Earl said...

I think the reward is supposed to be 72 raisins. Don't know when or how it got changed to virgins. And you can thank me now for not saying more.

Somethin that came to my mind about Saudi Arabia...why the hell do we give them foreign aid? Arent they loaded already?Why dont they give US some foreign aid?

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

Earl- The translation got scrambled because the original text referred to "72 f--king raisins," which naturally caused confusion.

It continues to shock me that Americans can be so politically correct they refuse to see what is happening in our very divided country. These jihadists live among us - it is really frightening & hard to minimize its danger.
