Omar Abdel Rahman Dies
Omar Abdel Rahman
Omar Abdel Rahman, the so-called Blind Sheikh, has died in a federal prison in North Carolina, where he was serving a life sentence for his role in a conspiracy to blow up New York City landmarks.
Here is more on the so-called Blind Sheikh courtesy of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
This man was a dangerous radical when he was living in the Middle East. Somehow he was admitted to our shores where he repaid our hospitality by trying to murder Americans. His radical bent was never a secret. Yet, in 1992, he was hosted at the Islamic Center of Orange County by none other than famed "moderate" imam Muzammil Siddiqi, who translated the Blind Sheikh's guest sermon.
It gets worse. In 2012, I attended an open town hall on sharia law at the above mosque. The panel was a who's who of useful idiots including disgraced ex-LASD sheriff Lee Baca (now on trial for corruption), Democratic congresswomen Maxine Waters, Loretta Sanchez and Judy Chu, the US Attorney for Los Angeles, Andre Birotte Jr. and LAPD's chief of counter terror, Michael Downing. Everybody agreed that sharia law was no threat to the US and was I compatible with the US Constitution. When I brought the 1992 visit to the mosque by Abdel Rahman to Downing's attention after the event concluded, his response was: "Well, Gary, you know some people change over time."
This is what we are up against.
