Chicago: Muslim Convert Pleads Guilty To Mall Bomb Plot

Posted: 29 Nov 2007 06:22 AM CST

CHICAGO (AP) — A convert to Islam pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges alleging he plotted to use hand grenades to attack holiday shoppers at a mall in Rockford.

Derrick Shareef was arrested in December 2006 on charges of scheming to use weapons of mass destruction against the Cherryvale Mall in the northern Illinois city.

Prosecutors have said he plotted with an undercover federal informant to commit acts of “violent jihad,” or holy war, including setting off hand grenades concealed in garbage cans at the mall.

Shareef, 23, was arrested after meeting an undercover federal agent and agreeing to trade his stereo speakers for four grenades and a gun.


State Department Fails To Say Anything On Teddy Bear Issue

Apparently the State Department doesn’t find it necessary to speak out about this women being persecuted for simply naming a bear Muhammad. My question is does the State Department ever take a stand on any issue when it relates to Muhammad or Islam?

Question: What is the U.S. reaction to the case of the British teacher who faces charges of “insulting Islam” after the primary school class named a teddy bear Mohammed?

We are following the situation of the British teacher closely and with concern. We understand the British government is pursuing this with the Sudanese government directly.

    This is nonsense. There is no separate category of Islam and Shariah for India. Moreover, the Mumbai attackers had support from local Muslims, so clearly not ALL Indian Muslims are “moderate.”
