Don't let the bomb hit you on the way out

From the NY Post:

Al Qaeda has an opening for a new editor.

Killed along with terror mouthpiece Anwar al-Awlaki was Samir Khan, a former Queens kid turned militant Islamist who published “Inspire,” al Qaeda’s online magazine and recruitment tool.

Khan, 25, was a Saudi-born US citizen, whose family moved to Maspeth, Queens, in 1993, and later to Long Island. He lived the life of a normal New York teen until a month before 9/11, when he traded his street slang and baggy pants for Islamic extremism.

He attended a summer camp at a Queens mosque, and over time became a fundamentalist. Khan and his parents moved to North Carolina in 2004, when he began taking his Islamist crusade to the Internet.

His print/Web magazine spouted al Qaeda’s ideology of attacks on Westerners, and even gave how-to manuals on how to carry one out, such as an article titled “Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom.”

Khan moved to North Carolina after spending time in New York, and from there left for Yemen two years ago, according to published reports.

Anon#1, from what I've read other places, the parents were very upset with Khan's embrace of islamo-fascism and tried everything they could to turn him around. Needless to say all their efforts were fruitless.
The man got what he deserved though.

Deport the parents and any existing siblings ASAP. Check out the mosque that he went to "summer camp." Sounds like his camp experience was a catalyst for his hatred of the US.

People need to realize a mosque is not like a church in western society.

It is the center of all things. Religion, culture, politics, finance, government and even military. You'll note there are no taboos against storing weapons in a mosque. The only taboos are the ones we have about not bombing them.

I visited famous mosques in Cairo many years ago. I was amazed to find guys sleeping on the floors when services weren't held.
