Terrorists Egyptian Men In The U.S.
Shouldn't the FBI have called more attention to the fact that these guys are from Manoura University in Egypt, site of demonstrations in behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood?
Here are the pictures of the eleven missing possible terrorists now loose and fancy free somewhere on the streets of America:
Oops, we don't have any pictures because the FBI doesn't want us to find them until they walk into a mall, school, hospital, airport, or the like, and blow the hell out of innocent Americans. On the other hand, all 11 guys could just be out on a camping trip somewhere, enjoying the scenery. (Select one)According to the FBI, the missing men are not considered a threat (that's the verson for public consumption). We're talkiing about 11 Egyptian men, ages 18 to 22, that entered the U.S. under the pretense of attending a month-long program in U.S. history and culture, and English language instruction, at Montana State University. They never showed up:
WASHINGTON -- Eleven Egyptian students who arrived in the United States last month are being sought by U.S. authorities after failing to turn up at Montana State University.So where are they? Flopping Aces offers a possibility.
The 11 Egyptian men were among a larger group of students who arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York from Cairo on July 29 with valid visas, according to FBI and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.
The others have arrived at the Bozeman, Mont., campus. When the 11 didn't turn up by the end of the last week, the FBI issued a lookout to state and local law enforcement, said FBI Special Agent Richard Kolko.
"At this point all they have done is not show up for a scheduled academic program," Kolko said. "There is no threat associated with these men."
They are between 18 and 22 years old, said a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the search for the men is continuing.
The government probably will seek to send the students home once located because they have violated the terms of their visas, the official said.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement hasn't disclosed the names or images of the 11, but revealed that they were students registered at Mansoura University in Mansoura, Egypt. If the FBI has Internet access, I assume they already know about the increased "Muslim Brotherhood" activity and the student demonstrations there in support of the radical Islamist group at Manoura University. And what should we know about Manoura University? Do you think the fact that, as one American Muslim scholar put it, "They [the students] didn't have to be the smartest. Some were just average students. They didn't just come from Cairo and Alexandria, they came from Benha and Assuit and Mansoura and Gharbeya. Anyone who wanted to come to the US and go to graduate school could with a little bit of work, and get a fellowship," is a possible clue?
Dr. Mohamed is a graduate of Ain Shams University in Cairo, and has been in this country since the mid-1970's. He is proud of his U.S. citizenship. "When I came to this country, it was everyone's dream in Egypt to go live in America. Everyone loved Americans. Now when I go back to my home country, I do not advertise that I am an American."Forget this profiling crap - identify these missing men for what they are, missing Muslims that could be associated with a radical ideology (separate them from the general Muslim community), and for God's sake show us their damned pictures so we can find them before they get buried in the radical community, possibly in one of the damned secret radical Islamic camps throughout America.
He is quite concerned that this interview will cause him to be marked as an apostate, and he fears retaliation, especially on his planned trip to Cairo this summer.
"In Egypt, everyone knew about the Muslim Brotherhood, but it was illegal. After the peace treaty with Israel, the radicals came crawling out of the darkness. But they weren't idiots. They were very cunning," he explained.
Dr. Mohamed continued, "The US knew there was going to be a problem. They had problems in Iran with the Ayatullah, now they were afraid there would be problems in Egypt. Jimmy Carter and his people (yep, him again) were going to reach the next generation of young men by giving them scholarships to come and study in America. They were going to teach them how great the US was. They recruited from universities in Egypt, Syria, Saudia, the Emirates - all the Arab countries."
Dr. Mohamed thinks part of the problem was the students themselves. "They [the students] didn't have to be the smartest. Some were just average students. They didn't just come from Cairo and Alexandria, they came from Benha and Assuit and Mansoura and Gharbeya. Anyone who wanted to come to the US and go to graduate school could with a little bit of work, and get a fellowship."
A note of clarification here - all Egyptian students are not terrorists and terrorist sympathizers. Many students in Egypt have been demonstrating for true democracy. However, those that support the Muslim Brotherhood are most likely to be sympathetic with the MB's radical Islamic ideology, and the fact that the eleven Egyptian men have disappeared off the radar screen, should be considered a strong clue of possible hostile intentions.
