Dallas Terrorist Does His Bit to "Shape the World"

We will be respectful, even when we do not agree. We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world for the better. . . .
--Barack Obama

Yesterday, Hosam Maher Husein Smadi was arrested on the charge of "attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction." Smadi's target was Fountain Place, an emerald green 60-story glass tower in downtown Dallas.

Smadi's planned methodology: parking a 2001 Ford Explorer containing a bomb in the office tower's garage and then detonating the bomb from a distance using a cellphone. Thanks to the FBI, who had been monitoring Smadi for more than six months, the bomb was a fake.

Smadi told FBI informants about his goal:

I truly say it that my dream is to be among God's soldiers, first for the support of Islam and my beloved Sheik Usama, may God give him long life. I don't know what is in me, but I love him as I love my father.

Later, when Smadi had chosen his target, he told the informant:

Millions of people would incur losses: unemployment poverty, hunger, and a strike to the head of the government. Don't forget the psychological impacts for the loss of this beautiful building.

Smadi is a 19-year-old illegal alien from Jordan who had been living in the small town of Italy, Texas, where he worked as a cashier at the local Texas Best Smokehouse near his home in "a development made up of dozens of small, individual dome structures along U.S. Highway 77." "One friend described his home, where he lived alone, as simple; neat, with a surround-sound system, laptop, weight bench, TV and a bed." His friends called him Sam, and described him as "fun, easygoing, and always willing to lend a hand" and "liked to play with his neighbor's children. "He loved techno music, had earrings in both ears, and he was often seen wearing a belt buckle decorated with rhinestones that formed a gun." He "drank occasionally and smoked cigarettes." One friend said that "he looked just like 'your average American rock star.'"

"This comes as a shock to us; he was just an awesome person," said friend Tabatha Rogers. "He was good to us."

Several Islamic terrorists have been arrested this week, the last week of Ramadan, including in Denver, New York, and Springfield, Illinois. The Springfield plot was hatched by a prison convert to Islam.

Today is the last day of Ramadan, and it has been declared a "National Day of Prayer" for Muslims, who have already begun to rally at Capital Hill in Washington, DC. The organizers of this event include Muslims with extremist ties, such as Hassen Abdellah, an attorney who represented Islamic terrorists for the 1993 and 2001 world trade center attacks.
