Imperial Good News! Terrorist Omar Abdel Rahman Drops Dead in Federal Prison
Omar Abdel Rahman was a member of Egyptian Islamic Jihad when Ayman al-Zawahiri ran that organization. He later emigrated to the United States where he engaged in Jihadi against America from the inside.
Omar Abdel Rahman, the Egyptian-born “blind sheikh” and spiritual leader who was convicted in 1995 of being a mastermind of terrorist plots against the United States, and who was called the “godfather” of radical Islamist movements, died Feb. 18 at a federal prison in Butner, N.C., where he was serving a life sentence. He was 78.More here at Wiki. and Jawa Report. You know what this means? Yup.. Dance Jawas! Dance!
Kenneth McKoy, a Bureau of Prisons official, confirmed the death to the Associated Press. The cause was diabetes and heart disease. Abdel Rahman, who was blind from an early age, had denounced secular tendencies in other Muslims since the 1960s and was linked for decades with extremist Islamist circles in Egypt and abroad. He was twice acquitted of helping plot the 1981 assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat — whom he denounced as “not a Muslim” — and built an alliance with al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden while living in Afghanistan in the 1980s. After moving to the United States in 1990, Abdel Rahman preached at storefront mosques in Brooklyn and New Jersey, and came under federal scrutiny after a 1993 bombing at the World Trade Center left six people dead and more than 1,000 injured.
