Dangers Of Genetically Modified Foods

Commentary on Dangers of Genetically Modified Foods


September 2, 2009

By Edem Srem

Sad to say, Genetically Modified foods have been introduced to the African Market. It is now up to African consumers to reject them. This will save lives and cost for the treatment of the side effects of consuming Genetically Modified foods.*

*The history of controlling the food industry in the world by the then American Government in 1973 under President Nixon started by introducing the "Food for Peace" programme which was led by Henry Kissinger, Nixon's Secretary of State and National Security Adviser.*

According to the New African Magazine, Kissinger controlled absolutely the US foreign policy and summarized his activities as "Control oil and you control nations, control food and you control the people". His idea of capturing the worldwide food industry started with the introduction of what was termed as the gene revolution.

The revolution did not succeed until 1990. a member of the South African consumer movement, Andrew Taynton explains that whereas natural breeding techniques select plants or animals with desirable traits and cross breed within a species to create better crops or animals, genetically modified are developed in laboratories by splicing genes from unrelated species into the host organism.

For instance, bacterial genes can be spliced into food crops and it will reproduce itself in each cell in the plants. Also scientists are now transferring anti-freeze genes from fish to tomatoes to keep it longer in the cold. There is also the splicing of pig genes into rice and daffodils to corn. All these have devastating effects, because of its imprecise processes.

The main effects of consuming genetically modified foods includes; allergies, new toxins, new diseases, antibiotic resistance and change in nutritional values. One other thing which needs to be mentioned is the "V Gurts" Varietal Genetic Use Restriction Technology which is popularly called the "Suicide Seeds" or terminator technology.

One expert believes Africa is in great danger now as genetically modified seeds are made in forms of herbicides and pesticides. These are normally exported to Africa and the Caribbean. The centre for Disease Control of the United States says that at lease 80% of food related illnesses are cause by viruses or pathogens that scientist cannot even identify.

Prince Charles, the heir to the British Throne, was once reported to have stated that "growing genetically modified crops in the developing world represents the biggest environmental disaster of all time".

With the realities of climate change, it is just an option to reject these kinds of foods on the market. More revelations have been made by Dr. Arpad Pusztai, when he found out that rat fed on genetically modified potatoes had smaller livers, hearts, testicles and brains.

It was also revealed that their immune systems have been damaged with a lot of structural changes in their white blood cells, making them vulnerable to infections and other diseases as compared to rats which were fed on normal organic foods. The same changes occur in humans who also take genetically modified foods.

Thus, the whole world could be exterminated if nothing is done to stop it. We have all become lab rats in mass human experiment with huge risks. The risks will be too late to detect and save the world especially Africa because it will take longer times to find the antidotes. By then the genetically modified companies would have made their money.

Apart from South Africa which has started growing genetically modified crops, the remaining African countries must reject and fight against governments who want to adopt the technology. Ghana should also try to establish strict checks on imported foods, seeds, herbicides and pesticides to control, if not to stop the spread of the genetically modified crops in the country.

The solution is to accept nuclear foods which are done through induced mutations. World examples of induced mutations include; Tek Bankye which has been developed by the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in collaboration with the IAEA. The Biotechnology and Nuclear Agricultural Research Institute has carried out researches that show that the Tek bankye yields as high as 17.84 tons per acre.

Kenya has also developed a high yielding and drought resistant wheat. Hopefully all Africans, especially, Ghanaians would reject genetically modified foods for a sustainable environment and good health.

Obama The Jew Hater Strikes Again - Obama National Security Adviser to Speak at Anti-Israel Conference

Obama National Security Adviser to Speak at Anti-Israel Conference

It goes from bad to worse. Obama is sanctioning the fetid J street. In no other era would this radical group of Jew hating sell outs be anything but fringe.

So whats Obama's plan here? That's easy: to destroy Israel with the imprimatur of a faux "Jewish" group funded by the black hand of Soros. I wouldn't further sully the term "kapo" for these quislings. Kapos had no choice. There were no good choices for Jews in Nazi Germany. But here? Now? Collaborators to jihad in the most welcoming and benevolent country for Jews in the history of man (save for Israel). J street Jews involved in this perverse and degenerate effort to dismantle, destroy Israel should be forever banned from the Jewish homeland. We can't excommunicate, but we can do that, at the very least.

Where is Jewish leadership in this country? Playing with their shmeckles, that's where. Where is our Jabotinsky, Meir, Begin, Bergson? How many millions did Jewish Americans donate to the major Jewish organizations in this country to watch them turn a blind eye to the Jewish genocidal threats we face or soft pedal Islamic anti-semitism? It is criminal in light of what we have suffered. The Jewish orgs should be on the forefront of emerging threats, not making excuses or apologizing for jihad.

J Street was inevitable. When groups like AIPAC refused to take a political stand, it was only a matter of time that a leftist J group with anti-semitic ideologies would emerge.

Back in May of '08, a reader invited me to the AIPAC Wall Street dinner at Cipriani. Very chi chi. I went up to the Executive Director, Howard Kohr, and said I understand AIPAC is "non-partisan, but Obama will be lethal for the Jews". Kohr scoffed. I went on to relate all that I had unearthed in my two years of relentless investigation of Obama and I laid it out, point by point, fact by fact, with as little hyperbole as I could contain. Kohr shook his head. He would have none of it. We are non-partisan, he insisted. To what point are you non-partisan? If there is a candidate, a party, an official that is a Jew hater, do you maintain neutrality, like Switzerland? He just smiled and walked away.

Obama National Security Adviser to Speak at Anti-Israel Conference James Jones, President Obama's National Security Advisor, has agreed to be the keynote speaker at the anti-Israel group J Street's first annual conference in Washington next week. While the group bills itself as the "pro Israel" and "pro peace" alternative to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, in reality it is a liberal organization actively campaigning against Israel's right to defend itself. As Michael Goldfarb has noted, other speakers at the conference include Eli Pariser, the former director of Moveon.org, and Salam Al-Marayati, who was quoted in the New York Times in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks saying Israel should be considered a prime suspect:

''If we're going to look at suspects, we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what's happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies.''

The announcement that Jones will speak comes as a growing number of Democratic members of Congress have announced they would drop out of participating in the conference, causing J Street to blame the Weekly Standard for employing a "classic 'swift boat' move" by publishing actual statements made by participants in the conference.
With each passing day, the outright contempt the Obama administration has for Israel becomes more apparent.

Action, Adventure, Intrigue! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

A Smiling Face Sometimes Hides Unspeakable Evil

Because I find trivia fascinating, as a young man I would often walk up and down the aisles of the Bayonne Public Library (a bit of trivia: Andrew Carnegie donated $50,000 for its construction in 1903) looking for books on subjects that were of no interest to me. Anyone can read material that interests them, but it takes a wandering and wondering mind to take on stuff of absolutely no use or value.
The task was accomplished rather simply: walk randomly about, stick out a hand a pull a book off the shelf. No matter what the topic, no matter how thick the bundle of pages, no matter the topic, I would read the book from start to finish. I reasoned that the author took some time writing it, it must have something interesting inside. And indeed, it always did.
I learned of many things through this forced serendipity:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings.

Now with the Internet it is infinitely easier to wander. Earlier today I was surfing through Action Figure dolls (I have no interest in action figure dolls) when I came upon the fellow you see at the top right of this post.
There was something about his white face, the green hairdo, the black tie, the wide red smile hiding some dark evil when it came to me as I let the word "evil" flit through my mind.
I remembered now. A seemingly innocuous thing of white and green and black and a wide red smile hiding an unspeakable evil.
Organization of Islamic Conference

What you see here is the flag of the Organization of Islamic Conference. It looks benign, doesn't it?
Standing behind the Organization of Islamic Conference are 57 member states, most of which are Muslim majority nations. You will not find on the Internet a flag of the Organization of Christian Conference although there are many countries that are majority Christian. You will not find on the Internet a flag of the Organization of Buddhist Conference although there are many countries that are majority Buddhist. I won't mention a flag of the Organization of Jewish Conference since there is only one Jewish state.
The reason there is a flag for an Islamic Union, is that Muslims do not think of themselves as members of this country or that - they only think of themselves as one political entity - members of the Islamic state. The Christians in Italy think of themselves as Italians. The Christians in France think of themselves as French. The Buddhists in Thailand think of themselves as Thai. Buddhists in Mongolia think of themselves as Mongol and would never think of uniting politically with the Buddhists of Thailand, South Korea, or Cambodia. This is so because the Christian religion, like the Buddhist religion is not a political entity as is Islam.
Sadly, most Americans do not realize the evil and danger behind an Organization of Islamic Conference. It does have that smiley face, after all.

Sacramento speaks, "Thou shall not have big TV"

California appears poised to be first to ban power-guzzling big-screen TVs
Industry lobbying efforts appera to elicit little sympathy from state Energy Commission, which may vote as soon as Nov. 4.
By Marc Lifsher October 14, 2009 Reporting from Sacramento

The influential lobby group Consumer Electronics Assn. is fighting what appears to be a losing battle to dissuade California regulators from passing the nation's first ban on energy-hungry big-screen televisions.

On Tuesday, executives and consultants for the Arlington, Va., trade group asked members of the California Energy Commission to instead let consumers use their wallets to decide whether they want to buy the most energy-saving new models of liquid-crystal display and plasma high-definition TVs.

"Voluntary efforts are succeeding without regulations," said Doug Johnson, the association's senior director for technology policy. Too much government interference could hamstring industry innovation and prove expensive to manufacturers and consumers, he warned.

But those pleas didn't appear to elicit much support from commissioners at a public hearing on the proposed rules that would set maximum energy-consumption standards for televisions to be phased in over two years beginning in January 2011. A vote could come as early as Nov. 4.

The association's views weren't shared by everyone in the TV business. Representatives of some TV makers, including top-seller Vizio Inc. of Irvine, said they would have little trouble complying with tighter state standards without substantially increasing prices.

"We're comfortable with our ability to meet the proposed levels and implementation dates," said Kenneth R. Lowe, Vizio's co-founder and vice president.

Last month, the commission formally unveiled its proposal to require manufacturers to limit television energy consumption in a way that has been done with refrigerators, air conditioners and dozens of other products since the 1970s.

"We would not propose TV efficiency standards if we thought there was any evidence in the record that they will hurt the economy," said Commissioner Julia Levin, who has been in charge of the two-year rule-making procedure. "This will actually save consumers money and help the California economy grow and create new clean, sustainable jobs."

Tightening efficiency ratings by using new technology and materials should result in "zero increase in cost to consumers," said Harinder Singh, an Energy Commission staffer on the TV regulation project.

California's estimated 35 million TVs and related electronic devices account for about 10% of all household electricity consumption, the Energy Commission staff reported. But manufacturers quickly are coming up with new technologies that are making even 50-inch-screen models much more economical to operate.

New features, such as light-emitting diodes that consume tiny amounts of power, special reflective films and sensors that automatically adjust TV brightness to a room's viewing conditions, are driving down electricity consumption, experts said.

The payoff could be big for TV owners, said Ken Rider, a commission staff engineer. Average first-year savings from reduced electricity use would be an estimated $30 per set and $912 million statewide, he said.

If all TVs met state standards, Rider added, California could avoid the $600-million cost of building a natural-gas-fired power plant. Switching to more-efficient TVs could have an estimated net benefit to the state of $8.1 billion, the commission staff reported.

Consumer Electronics Assn. officials disputed that figure, arguing that it was based on out-of-date numbers that fail to account for recent industry innovations. "With voluntary compliance, manufacturers can meet the targets over time, managing the cost impact, yet not in any way impeding innovation," said Seth Greenstein, an association consultant.

Wilder is the man, the last free man standing. Check out the welcome he received from Muslims. Well, at least they're honest about their intentions.

Geert was in London today to meet Malcolm and his lawyers. There were about 30 counter demonstrators.

Geert Wilders greeted with "Islam Will Dominate the World"

Talk about making Wilders' point:

Brandishing banners saying 'Sharia is the true solution, freedom go to hell', Muslim protesters met Mr Wilders outside the Houses of Parliament (here)

It was feared that his outspoken views on Islam could spark religious violence, but this was rejected by the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal on Tuesday.

Lord Pearson, who invited the leader of the Dutch Freedom Party to the UK, said his arrival was 'a celebration of the victory of freedom of speech over those who would prevent it in this country, particularly the Islamists, the violent Jihadists who are on the march across the world and in the UK.'

Mr Wilders denied responsibility for the publicity which has greeted his visit.

The 46-year-old said: 'If anybody has responsibility for this publicity it is the UK Government and the Home Secretary and not Geert Wilders. (here)



GO GEERT!

Press conference: Mr Wilders described his UK visit as a 'victory'

'On this occasion the Home Secretary is not minded to recommend that Wilders is denied admission to the UK.

'Clearly Mr Wilders' statements and behaviour during a visit will inevitably impact on any future decisions to admit him.'

The tribunal found there was no evidence to suggest the politician represented a serious threat, and if trouble erupted the police could remove him.

'It was more important to allow free speech than to take restrictive action speculatively,' they said.

Heck No! It's time to scream...

Is it time to whisper the word ‘impeachment’?

By Floyd and Mary Beth Brown, World Net Daily

The Impeach Obama Campaign is gaining steam

At the tea party in Washington, D.C., a popular sign read simply, "Impeach Obama."

As a moderator of discussion on the blog www.exposeobama.com, Floyd has observed the discussion of impeachment is mushrooming amongst conservative activists.

Radio personality Tammy Bruce may have captured these activists’ beliefs about Obama best: "Uultimately, it comes down to … the fact that he seems to have, it seems to me, some malevolence toward this country, which is unabated."

But has Barack Obama committed an impeachable offense? What exactly constitutes an impeachable offense? Former President Gerald Ford, while serving in the House of Representatives, said an impeachable offense was "whatever a majority of the House of Representatives considers it to be at a given moment in history."

Article I, Section 4 of the Constitution reads: "The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors."

Here’s a passage from C-Span.org that succinctly summarizes the historical significance surrounding the inclusion of the phrase "high crimes and misdemeanors" in the Constitution: "’High crimes and misdemeanors’ entered the text of the Constitution due to George Mason and James Madison. Mason had argued that the reasons given for impeachment – treason and bribery – were not enough. He worried that other "great and dangerous offenses" might not be covered … so Mason then proposed ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ a phrase well-known in English common law. In 18th-century language, a ‘misdemeanor’ meant ‘mis-demeanor,’ or bad behavior."

In other words, "high crimes and misdemeanors" does not refer to a criminal act. Our Founding Fathers fully intended to allow for the removal of the president for actions which include: gross incompetence, negligence and distasteful behavior.

For those who mistakenly hold the illusion that impeaching Barack Hussein Obama would be a simple matter of "playing politics," the founders fully intended that the impeachment of a sitting president be a political act.

As C-Span.org notes: "The Congress decides the definition [of impeachable offenses]: by majority vote in the House for impeachment, and by two-thirds vote in the Senate for conviction. The Framers of the Constitution deliberately put impeachment into the hands of the legislative branch rather than the judicial branch, thus transforming it from strictly a matter of legal definition to a matter of political judgment."

Impeachment is no more or less than the recall of an elected official who isn’t up to the job. Obama deserves recall much more than Gov. Gray Davis, and he was replaced by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in a special recall election Oct. 7, 2003, in California.

America is a monument to the triumph of freedom. When Barack Obama thinks about freedom, he sees a world in which some people, due to personal initiative and good fortune, will do better than others. In that regard, he is right. But Barack Obama sees that as unfair. Where you see freedom, liberty and the opportunity for any American to be all that he or she can be, Obama sees greed and bigotry.

Like so many on the far-left before him, going all the way back to Karl Marx, he believes that it’s his mission to promote "equality of outcome" over "equality of opportunity." This worldview makes Barack Hussein Obama a very dangerous man, and a threat to your personal liberty.

Worldview explains why he has gobbled-up major banks and why the government now controls more and more of our money. And if you wake up one day to discover you’re broke, don’t be surprised. Barack Hussein Obama is Bernie Madoff with the political power of the presidency at his disposal.

Worldview explains why Obama intends to take away your freedom to choose your own doctor and your own treatment. Wherever government controls health care, bureaucrats decide who gets treatments, transplants, dialysis and costly medication.

The groundswell of calls for the impeachment of Barack Hussein Obama is growing.

The Nobel Committee couldn’t have embarrassed itself more if they’d all wet themselves on television.

How Do You Say “WTF?!?” In Norwegian?

The Nobel Committee couldn’t have embarrassed itself more if they’d all wet themselves on television.

It’s not just me who feels this way.

Skepticism over the award abounds.

It has been pointed out several times that this has to be a rough day for The Onion because they couldn’t possibly make something up that would be more absurdly funny than the gift that the Nobel Committee gave everyone this morning.

Sure, I’m an Obama detractor but even a cynic like me doesn’t doubt that he might do something to win a Nobel Peace Prize someday. But I don’t know how anyone who isn’t undergoing daily electroshock treatments that can make a case for him having won it now. I’m poring over the list of his contributions to international peace and not finding much beyond that chuckle he shared with soul mate Hugo Chavez.

The cult of personality that has grown around Barack Obama is unlike anything I’ve ever seen in politics. Millions of thin-skinned crybabies all over the planet worship him simply because he’s the popular kid and they hope it will make them popular with others.

His popularity is based almost entirely on perception and emotion rather than anything concrete. This is the reason that it’s impossible to have a political discussion about President Obama and his policies. Most of his fans don’t vote with their heads, they vote with their hearts. So if I say anything at all about the president, they’re offended. They desperately need him to be the mythic figure they’ve hung all their hopes on and anyone who disagrees with him is seen as a dangerous threat to the fantasy.

Watch this clip from “Morning Joe” on MSNBC. The Marisa Tomei reference was later cited by a CNN anchor as “pretty strong rhetoric”.

Because nothing coarsens the dialog and gets the unhinged violent wingers going faster than bringing up “My Cousin Vinnie”.

Sack up, Lightbringer fans and start viewing the president as what he is: a man and a politician, not a demi-god.

The sooner you all do that, the fewer years you’ll spend in therapy dealing with profound disappointment issues.

When is he going to celebrate something Christian?

Linda says, "Obama ignored National Day of Prayer , but sent out 5 mintue blessing to Muslims Then he held a dinner for Muslims in celebration of Ramadan on Sept 2nd. Next he dissed the Dalai Lama. Now he celebrates Dawali. When is he going to celebrate something Christian, or was his 20 yrs in Wright's church just a ruse to look good to the local black community who have raised him up from the day he got to Chicago? You know I don't so much have an objection to him honoring other religions , because we are a diverse country.. BUT it does bother me that, he is crapping all over Christians and favoring and bowing to others, while doing it. And to top that off (so far) , the administration raised the Communist Chinese flag behind the White House to celebrate their years as a communist country!!!!!!!! These are just a few of the indicators of what I think this president isn't and very much so, wat he IS!! "


Obama seeks light and knowledge from Diwali

By Chidanand Rajghatta, Times of India

Obama celebrates Hindi holiday in White House

In an expansive gesture to Indians worldwide as much as to showcase his – and America’s — multi-cultural affections, US President Barack Obama on Wednesday lit a ceremonial Diwali lamp at the White House to ‘’symbolize victory of light over darkness.”

Although it was the Bush White House that began celebrating Diwali, the Indian festival of lights, in 2003, Obama became the first President to personally grace the ceremony — a brief affair that began with a rather incongruous performance by the well-regarded Hindi a-capella group Penn Masala, and ended with a Sanskrit invocation by a priest from the local Siva-Vishnu temple.

”This coming Saturday, Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and some Buddhists, here in America and around the world, will celebrate this holiday by lighting Diyas, or lamps, which symbolize the victory of light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance,” Obama said on the occasion, adding, ”And while this is a time of rejoicing, it’s also a time for reflection, when we remember those who are less fortunate and renew our commitment to reach out to those in need.”

So you thought you knew this muslim President of ours. HA!!! He is much, much more radical Then you Liberals ever could have imagined!!
Obama has broken all Christian values of this Country, how many more is he going to brake before he is impeached.

I respect the OFFICE of the President of the United States but I will not show one ounce of respect for this muslim idiot.. The muslim movement is an evil force set out to kill and destroy and I cannot understand how the people that gather around the President can smile, laugh and rejoice while our country is being torn apart.. He and the other muslim-loving idiots that he has elected sure have hood-winked many AMERICANS into thinking he is THE Savior.
It is a shame to see how bad things are at home. We dont help our own people we give to the entire world. I am working in Saudi due to not being able to provide for my family as a firefighter/paramedic working 2 jobs and now rumors are out that taxes are changing for us that are working abroad. Come on I left my family and friends to come to the unknown and I am still being pentalized. Where are we headed as a country. Obviously, not to better the system.
GOD BLESS AMERICA AND LETS GET TOGETHER TO IMPEACH THIS
MUSLIM PRESIDENT THE IDIOTS ELECTED
Amen Ronaldo......Impeachment is the only path we should follow now.....we MUST MUST MUST remove that Muslim extremist from our White House.....he has no right to be there. We must ban together and bring others in that don't yet know about ExposeObama.com and the petition to have 'it' removed from office before he ruins this country.
It's not only Obama that needs to be removed. Most of the Democrats who have slid in behind him without even looking at what he stands for need to be "impeached" also.... and I'll include Ms Snowe in that assessment. If Obama wants to "court" her for her opinion, he can do it from the street where he can do no further harm. Action, not inaction, and moving forward to re-energize the support for our DEMOCRACY. We do NOT bow..... the tens of thousands of our soldiers who died for nearly every continent gave us the right to be "arrogant", if that's what we are.... but our "leader" has no right to be the one to call us that.
and THE ONE shall deceive even the SAINTS in the last days! COME ON PATRIOTS IF WE HAVE TO GO LETS GO KICKING AND SCREAMING-oldgeezer

The document of the study by the Department of Political Affairs of the UN, with other information base (another truth) received at the last visit to Honduras, where it converged with representatives of the Organization of American States (OAS) and took advantage to meet other scenarios that were unclear.



La información sobre esta resolución colegiada de estos expertos, fue proporcionada a hondudiario.com, por fuentes oficiales que coligen las estrategias y presiones que promueven la ex canciller Patricia Rodas y el representante permanente de Venezuela en el Consejo Permanente para pedir más sanciones contra Honduras y exigir la restitución del ex presidente Zelaya, que advirtió “un ultimátum” para éste 15 de octubre. The information on this collegial resolution of these experts, was provided to hondudiario.com, official sources and pressures inferred strategies that promote the former foreign minister Patricia Rhodes and the permanent representative of Venezuela in the Permanent Council to seek more sanctions against Honduras and require the return of former President Zelaya, which warned of "an ultimatum" to this October 15.



“Estos señores están presionando y han invocado a una Asamblea Especial ante el Consejo de Seguridad, pero no se ha dado ninguna respuesta hasta la fecha, porque estaban esperando los resultados de sus propios estudios sobre la situación en Honduras, que ha mantenido dividido a Washington”, refirió el entrevistado. "These gentlemen are pressing and have invoked a special assembly to the Security Council, but there has been no response to date, they were awaiting the results of their own studies on the situation in Honduras, which has remained divided Washington "spoke the interviewee.

A Series Of Plots...Isn't it about time you were paying attention?

Source: NEFA Foundation

NEFA's "Target: America" series examines the multitude of terrorist plots directed at the United States (mostly after 9/11), drawing primarily on court filings and other official sources. The "Target: America" memos, which Counter terrorism and Homeland Security Reports identified as "very good reads for CT professionals," provide detailed insight into terrorist targeting strategies and tactics.

The Plot to Attack Jewish Centers in the Bronx and a Military Facility in Newburgh, NY

Four Newburgh, New York men were arrested in the Riverdale section of the Bronx on the night of May 20, 2009 for attempting to bomb a Jewish community center with, what they believed to be, a 30-pound plastic explosive device, which they placed in a car positioned outside of the center. The conspirators also intended to attack the National Guard air base in Newburgh with a surface-to-air-missile, which they acquired from a dealer they believed to be affiliated with the Pakistani terrorist group, Jaish-e-Mohammed.

In this 20th report in the "Target: America" series, the NEFA Foundation explores the backgrounds of the men, all of whom converted to Islam while incarcerated, and their tactics, which had the potential to culminate in a viable attack despite the group’s lack of formal training. There are lessons to be learned from this plot for law enforcement, private business security directors, and religious institutions.

This case also demonstrates the necessity of further study of how some prison converts end up radicalized. The details of the conspirators’ backgrounds in the Bronx plot case makes it difficult to know how they became radicalized; whether it was during the terms of their incarcerations, or through their interactions post-incarceration. This is an important issue for exploration by those who study homegrown radicalization.

Note: Due to the dynamic nature of these reports, updates will be provided when available.


August 12, 2009The Plot to Attack Jewish Centers in the Bronx and a Military Facility in Newburgh, NY
The NEFA Foundation has released the 20th report in the “Target: America ” series, which focuses on the conspiracy to attack Jewish centers in the Bronx and a military facility in Newburgh, NY.
June 17, 2009The Conspiracy to Establish a Jihad Training Camp in Bly, Oregon
The NEFA Foundation has released the 19th report in the “Target: America” series, which focuses on the conspiracy to establish a jihad training camp in Bly, Oregon in late 1999 through early 2000.

In October 1999, Seattle native James Ujaama came up with the idea of opening a jihad training camp outside of the tiny town of Bly, Oregon, where his acquaintance from the Dar-us-Salaam mosque in Seattle, Semi Osman, had moved with his family to a 160-acre plot of land that was formerly used as a sheep ranch. Ujaama pitched the training camp idea to his spiritual mentor, London cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri. Al-Masri, who had an established track record of facilitating and funding training for his followers, saw potential in Ujaama’s idea, and sent two of his closest followers, Oussama Kassir and Haroon Rashid Aswat, from London to the United States to investigate further.

The men found the conditions on the Bly ranch to be unsatisfactory for the purpose of establishing a jihad training camp and abandoned the plan. However, the evidence presented in the indictments and the recent trial of Oussama Kassir revealed useful information about terrorist training methods. The case also sheds further light on how radicalization and recruitment may occur in the United States.

In May 2009, Oussama Kassir, was found guilty in Manhattan federal court of charges related to his participation in the effort to establish a jihad training camp in Bly. Al Masri and Aswat are both awaiting extradition to the United States to stand trial for their role in the Bly training camp conspiracy, pending their appeals in the European Court of Human Rights.
June 10, 2009The Little Rock, Arkansas Recruiting Station Shooting
The NEFA Foundation has released the eighteenth installment in the “Target: America” series, which examines the June 1, 2009 shooting attack by Muslim convert Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammed, formerly known as Carlos Bledsoe, at a U.S. Army/Navy recruiting center in Little Rock, Arkansas. The attack killed Pvt. William Long, while Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula suffered non-life threatening injuries. Describing the attack as something that has "been on" his mind "for awhile" and that "was just...heat of the moment," Muhammed explained that "U.S.soldiers are killing innocent Muslim men and women. We believe that we have to strike back. We believe in eye for an eye. We don't believe in turning the other cheek." For Muhammed, who was enraged by allegations that U.S. military personnel desecrated the Quran and raped and murdered Muslims, "the shooting was an act, for the sake of God, for the sake of Allah, the Lord of all the world, and also a retaliation on U.S. military." According to the FBI, Muhammed also “conducted Google map searches related to Jewish entities, a Baptist church, a child care facility, a US post office and military recruiting centers in…Atlanta, Georgia; Little Rock, Arkansas; Louisville, Kentucky; New York, New York; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Memphis, Tennessee."

The report provides information on Muhammed's background, from his time in Tennessee and Ohio to his journey to Yemen, and also describes other plots targeting military facilities in the U.S. after 9/11.
April 30, 2009The Goose Creek, South Carolina Traffic Stop
The NEFA Foundation has released the seventeenth installment in the “Target: America” series, which examines the discovery of explosive materials in the trunk of a car in Goose Creek, South Carolina in the course of a routine car stop that took place in August 2007.

The subjects, both Egyptian nationals who studied engineering at the University of South Florida, were arrested for transporting explosives across state lines without a license. Ultimately, one, Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed, pled guilty to support of terrorism after investigators learned that he had created an instructional video, which he had posted to YouTube, showing how a remote-control toy could be used as a detonation device. Both subjects had demonstrated an ongoing interest in improvised explosive devices (IEDs), particularly in their use against U.S. troops in the Middle East. Investigators found evidence of their online visits to Hamas websites and websites that provided instructions for building IEDs. For several months prior to their arrest, Mohamed was gathering materials to build an IED. Through letters and poems, Mohamed has shown his hatred for the United States and his support for the leaders of violent jihad.

Not only does this case study provide an excellent example of vigilant police work, it also serves as a model for counter-terrorism analysts who seek to identify how a domestic terror cell might form, and the possible indicators of violent intentions.

This report, originally released on December 8, 2008, was updated on December 20, 2008, to reflect that Ahmed Abdellatif Sherif Mohamed was sentenced to 15 years in prison, and updated again on April 30, 2009 to reflect that Youssef Samir Megahed was found not guilty of possessing explosives by a Florida jury on April 3, 2009. However, Megahed was re-arrested on April 6, 2009 by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials on immigration charges. He is currently awaiting a hearing.
November 13, 2008The John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport Plot
The NEFA Foundation has released the sixteenth installment in the “Target: America” series, which examines the 2006/07 plot to attack jet fuel tanks and the adjoining fuel pipeline at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). The attack was conceived by Guyanese-American Russell Defreitas, a former cargo handler at JFK. Defreitas conspired from New York, with others located in Guyana, and with an FBI informant he befriended in New York. Defreitas and the informant conducted surveillance at JFK, traveled to Guyana to solidify attack plans with the other conspirators, and then traveled to Trinidad with the intention of securing financial and expert assistance from the leader of Jamaat al-Muslimeen The conspirators were arrested in Spring 2007, and are now in New York City awaiting trial. This report intends to provide as much detail as possible about the development of the plot, the background of the conspirators, their ideological motivation, their method of target selection, and their methods of operation.
April 3, 2008Bojinka II: The Transatlantic Liquid Bomb Plot
Concurrent with the start of the trial of eight alleged conspirators, the NEFA Foundation has released the fifteenth installment in its "Target: America" series, examining the 2006 plot to detonate liquid explosives on board several commercial aircraft departing from England and bound for the United States and Canada. Cell members reportedly planned to bring the liquid explosives onto planes in factory-sealed sports drink bottles modified with false bottoms. When announcing the plot’s disruption, Paul Stephenson, deputy chief of the Metropolitan Police, commented, "this was a plan by terrorists to cause untold death and destruction and commit mass murder." And British Home Secretary John Reid stated, "had this plot been carried out, the loss of life to innocent civilians would have been on an unprecedented scale."
March 18, 2008The Herald Square Plot
The NEFA Foundation has released the fourteenth installment in its "Target: America" series, examining the planned 2004 attack on the Herald Square subway station in New York City. Working closely with an NYPD informant, whom they believed would provide explosives, conspirators Shahawar Matin Siraj and James Elshafay plotted to bomb what U.S. Attorney Roslynn R. Mauskopf labeled "one of the most active public transportation hubs in America." Shortly after conducting surveillance on their target, the men discussed the most effective strategy for planting the bomb, with Elshafay even suggesting he "dress like a Jew" and have the device look "like a belly." By carrying out the attack, Siraj and Elshafay sought to "damage the economy" and hoped the impact of the subway bombing would be magnified by the collapse of the Manhattan Mall, which sits above the station.
Jan. 28, 2008The Fort Dix Plot
The NEFA Foundation has released the thirteenth installment in its "Target: America" series, examining the foiled 2007 plot to attack the U.S. Army base at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Initiated by a "homegrown" cell that was, in the words of one plotter, eager to "hit a heavy concentration of soldiers...", the plan was disrupted in May 2007 as two conspirators attempted to purchase four fully-automatic M-16 machine guns and three semi-automatic AK-47 assault rifles. In addition to attempting to purchase heavy weaponry to supplement their existing arsenal, cell members procured a map of Fort Dix, conducted reconnaissance on the base, and engaged in tactical and firearms training. One conspirator also carried out surveillance on a number of other military targets, including the U.S. Army base at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey and Dover Air Force base in Dover, Delaware. (The NEFA Foundation has provided comprehensive coverage of this case, publishing a library of exhibits introduced into evidence during the course of the trial, as well as NEFA Senior Investigator Evan Kohlmann's expert witness report.)
Jan. 5, 2008The L.A. Plot to Attack U.S. Military, Israeli Government, & Jewish Targets
The NEFA Foundation is providing an updated version of this "Target: America" report in light of guilty pleas from three plot conspirators and the release of a number of documents, including the 104-page "JIS Protocol" authored by mastermind Kevin James. The material provides rare insight into the mindset of homegrown American jihadists and sheds light on prison radicalization, as James established his terror cell and plotted carnage while incarcerated for armed robbery. FBI Director Robert Mueller has noted that "prisons continue to be fertile ground for extremists who exploit both a prisoner's conversion to Islam while still in prison, as well as their socio-economic status and placement in the community upon their release."
Dec. 22, 2007 The Illinois Shopping Mall Plot
This NEFA Foundation "Target: America" report focuses on the "homegrown" threat, documenting Muslim convert Derrick Shareef's plans to launch a grenade attack on the CherryVale Shopping Center in Rockford, Illinois. In preparation for his assault, Shareef carried out surveillance on the mall, attempted to procure weapons, and recorded a martyrdom tape, in which he ominously warned: "My name is Talib Abu Salam Ibn Shareef. I am 22 years of age. I am from America, and this tape is to let you guys know, who disbelieve in Allah, to let the enemies of Islam know, and to let the Muslims alike know that the time for jihad is now."
Dec. 6, 2007 The New York City Subway Poison Gas Plot
The NEFA Foundation has released a "Target: America" report examining the plot by a Bahrain-based cell to launch a cyanide gas attack on the New York City subway system. According to former CIA Director George Tenet, when the cell asked Al-Qaida’s central leadership for permission to launch the attack, "word came back from [Al-Qaida number two] Ayman al-Zawahiri himself in early 2003 to cancel the operation and recall the operatives, who were already staged in New York - because ‘we have something better in mind.’" The NYPD reports that "surveillance of the subway stations” had already been "undertaken."
Sept. 17, 2007 KSM's Transatlantic Shoe Bomb Plot
This "Target: America" report focuses on 9/11 planner Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's (KSM) plan to utilize two British Al Qaeda operatives -- Richard Reid and Sajid Badat -- to blow up U.S.-bound commercial airliners with shoe bombs. On December 22, 2001, Reid attempted to bring down American Airlines Flight 63 by igniting the explosive device in his shoe; his attempt failed and he was restrained by passengers until the plane landed. And, at the last moment, Badat withdrew from the plot, telling police he wanted to "introduce some calm in his life." Reid and Badat had been assisted by KSM's nephew 'Ammar al-Balucchi, who also played an important supporting role in 9/11.
Aug. 14, 2007 KSM's West Coast Airline Plot
This "Target: America" report documents 9/11 planner Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's (KSM) plot to utilize Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) operatives to hijack a plane, gain access to the cockpit by detonating shoe bombs, and crash it into the Library Tower, the tallest building on the West Coast. KSM selected JI recruits to target California, which he reportedly considered America's "richest state," because he felt they "would not arouse as much suspicion." KSM has told interrogators that, following 9/11, the second wave attack was on the "back burner," due to problematic operatives and his failure to account for the "U.S. responding to the attacks as fiercely as they did." KSM and three JI operatives allegedly involved in the plot are currently being held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
July 31, 2007 The Columbus Mall Plot
The plot to attack a Columbus, Ohio area shopping mall is featured in this "Target: America" report. In July 2007, Nuradin Abdi, a Somali national living in Columbus, admitted his involvement in a cell that included Iyman Faris, currently serving 20 years in prison for assessing targets on behalf of 9/11 planner Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and Christopher Paul, indicted in April 2007 for plotting against European resorts and U.S. government facilities. Abdi told FBI agents that his group was "willing to conduct acts of violence in the United States."
July 23, 2007 KSM's Brooklyn Bridge Plot
This "Target: America" report focuses on the plot, directed by 9/11 planner Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, to collapse the Brooklyn Bridge. Columbus, Ohio truck driver Iyman Faris, who is currently serving a 20 year prison sentence, researched "gas cutters" on the Internet and traveled to NYC to assess the bridge's vulnerabilities before concluding that the plan would likely fail. Faris had been recommended to KSM by Al Qaeda operative Majid Khan, a Baltimore resident now being held at Guantanamo Bay.
July 16, 2007 Hamas' Operations in North America
The NEFA Foundation examines a Hamas plot to attack members of the U.S. and Canadian Jewish communities, as well as to assassinate an Israeli official visiting the U.S. According to the Israeli government, Ahmed Wahabe, a "senior Hamas terrorist," tasked Jamal Akal, a Canadian citizen, to raise funds for the attack in Canadian mosques and purchase a M-16 from a Detroit gang. Further, Wahabe advised Akal that "New York is an easy place to find Jews."
July 9, 2007 Irhaby007's American Connections
This "Target: America" report shines a spotlight on the Atlanta, Georgia cell in Younis Tsouli's global, Internet-based, jihadist network. That Atlanta cell transmitted surveillance video of Washington D.C. landmarks to Tsouli in the U.K, and, according to FBI Director Robert Mueller, "had long-term goals of creating a large network of extremists in preparation for conducting attacks, possibly inside the United States." In July 2007, Tsouli and his two British co-conspirators pled guilty to inciting murder for terrorist purposes and received prison sentences ranging from 6 1/2 to 10 years. NEFA Senior Investigator Evan Kohlmann testified as an expert witness in that trial.
June 25, 2007 The PATH Tunnel Plot
This "Target: America" report details the plot to bomb the Port Authority Trans-Hudson Corporation (PATH) tunnel connecting New York and New Jersey. Describing the plot, which allegedly was directed by "a self-initiating foreign cell that had access to al-Qaeda's connections," FBI New York Director Mark Mershon asserted that the planned attack involved "martyrdom" and "explosives."
June 18, 2007 The East Coast Buildings Plot
This NEFA Foundation report details the chillingly detailed surveillance British Al-Qaida operative Dhiren Barot and his co-conspirators conducted on the Citigroup Center, the New York Stock Exchange, the Prudential Plaza, the International Monetary Fund Building, and the World Bank. By striking at the heart of the U.S. economy, Barot hoped to further Usama Bin Laden's goal of "bleeding America to the point of bankruptcy" and, in the words of a senior Justice Department official, "kill as many Americans as possible."
June 4, 2007 The Miami Plot to Bomb Federal Buildings and the Sears Tower
The NEFA Foundation examines the Miami-based plan, allegedly organized by Narseal Batiste, to "wage a 'full ground war' against the United States in order to 'kill all the devils...'" they could "in a mission that would 'be just as good or greater than 9/11.'" In addition to plotting to use explosives to destroy the Sears Tower, the conspirators also allegedly "agreed to assist in a fictitious al Qaeda plot" "to use explosives to destroy the offices of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Miami, Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, and Washington D.C." In the initial trial, one individual was acquitted on all charges, while a jury failed to reach a verdict on the fate of the other alleged conspirators. In April 2008, a second trial ended in a mistrial. In May 2009, a Miami jury convicted five individuals on multiple charges, including conspiring to provide material support to Al-Qaida and conspiracy to levy war against the U.S. Narseal Batiste was the only defendant convicted on all charges, while a sixth defendant was acquitted on all counts.
