brings to my attention a story in Dallas that the mayor ignored warnings from the FBI that a Dallas engineer had ties to a terrorist organization.
It’s hard to imagine that Mufid Abdulqader is the same man on stage wearing a traditional Palestinian Kafiyeh and desert robe, singing with gusto to a large admiring audience.
The naturalized U.S. citizen belting out the Arabic language tune in traditional tune while wearing traditional grab had, for more than eight years, worked by day for the city of Dallas in the mild-mannered field of civil engineering. He held a masters degree, had wife, kids, a mortgage and professional respect from colleagues and from the city’s top leaders fro his work.
It’s even harder to imagine that this professionally accomplished, highly affable public servant by day, was on weekends singing the praises of the terrorist organization Hamas, encouraging martyrs to kill Jews and glorifying violent Jihad.
"Our people in Al Aqsa are out to revenge, to destroy the enemy; our revolution is spread throughout the land!" Abdulqader sang. "With Quran and Jihad, we will gain our homes back, hey, hey, hey! My precioius eyes are for Palestine, the agony of death is preciouis killing Jews...Death to Jews is precious. Jews will not fear threats, only action, so Hamas, hit them with the shoe bottoms of Islam and Hamas!"
Chad reports that the Dallas mayor was warned by the FBI and that when confronted on her inaction stated that she hasn't been able to read all the mail she receives. What the hell kind of Mayor doesn't have mail readers? Especially one of such a large city? Go read Chad's post for more information on this incompetence.
Her response on the news last night was attrocious. She was just elected mayor, therefore it's impossible for her to have read everything, but you should read a letter from the FBI.
An FBI agent speaking on the condition of anonymity said that the Dallas FBI office tried calling her twice to warn her and she never returned phone calls.
